And now as we move into real life interventions and to try and link all that evidence onto give out in what we call in ten triangulation of the the data and i guess what excites me.

"Jim beattie new. As much as anyone could about south carolina's most notorious mass murderer and he was hopeful. His book peewee in me would be a full account of the meanest man in america. He was writing the novel that aimed towards redemption. It wasn't going to be like in cold blood a book. Jim taught on occasion. That was too sordid for jim. Storytelling approach. Jim was optimistic. That he could share some characteristics appear we that people often didn't see like honesty and compassion but in reality peewee rarely showed these traits in fact we told them this much during their interviews together.

"With me. Niki Beattie on the BBC World Service. I'd like to turn to some of the creatives in our zoom audience today. It would be good for me to know and for all of us to know how your artistic lives have had to change over the past year. Comedian Lauren Bonner. How has covid impacted you and your work? There's no international comics coming in. There's no even big, famous interstate comedians coming in. So I'm looking a few bigger gigs. Um, because no one else can do it. Excellent. Well, that's great. So it has perhaps been useful for some local comedians. We also have the best selling author Nicki Gamble in our audience. Nicky. What have your experiences of the past year in the lockdown? Spain? I mean, has it been an exciting time for a writer like you? I must say, I feel guilty, saying this I loved. It just went hell for leather with, you know, productivity and finish two books in the process. Sydney Writers Festival, which was on just last month. It was really exciting because for the first time kind of ever The superstars we're Australian. And usually there's this cultural cringe within Australia that we need to get the big names from overseas and suddenly there was a real celebration of local writing. And there was even this wonderful initiative, which was the debutantes ball for people who had published for the first time during the pandemic, So I feel like Covid has shifted the publishing model in Australia, but it's been a good thing, Nicky. Thank you. That's it For part. One of the arts are on virtual tour in Sydney. Don't go away coming up. We have comedy from Alice Fraser. Conversation with playwright and director Wesley Enoch, novelist Michael Mohammed Hamad and music from Barca and Lime. Cordial. We're back after this..

"I'm Niki Beattie and we're celebrating arts and performance in Australia's largest city, and we're exploring how it's creatives have adapted during the global pandemic. Before Covid 19 hit When we were traveling the world with this show, we'd take a culture cab tour of each city. We were in with one of our guests, and they'd show us Some of their artistic hotspots and cultural secrets. As we can actually be in Sydney. We asked Olivia Ansel, the newly appointed Sydney festival director, to record a tour for us over to you, Olivia. Hi, Nicky. I was previously the head of contemporary performance at Sydney Opera House and something that I used to enjoy doing was wandering up here to bend along lawn. And I think of the designer of Sydney upper half the architect your son's vision. And there's this beautiful natural separation between the shells of Sydney Opera House, which an architect could only have thought of if they spent a long time standing in this position, so it's quite a stunning point of reflection. I'm now going to take you up to Darling Hearst, another hidden location a bit of a gem. So now we're standing on the corner of Palm Street and Burton Street and I have to say this is one of my favorite parts of Sydney. It's in the Inner East area. Very hip, cosmopolitan scene. We've got the East Sydney Community and Arts Center and a terrific program called Brand X, which champions compelling and innovative, independent work by Sydney based artists. You want to try and experiment with new ideas, and they do so through the premise of this. These are inside, which is called the Flying Nun Theater, and it runs Wednesday to Sunday. You can see some of Sydney's most happening experimental arts and performing us right here at the very first try out of these new projects. It's quite the hang Have done many things that are experimental, and I don't think I would have a career if it wasn't for venues like the Flying nun. These are because they really give that independent artist an opportunity to have a voice and to trust themselves. So we're heading a little West, now down to the red rattler in Marysville, and it's known as a queer run creative playground in Sydney's Inner West that is ethical, sustainable and community owned. Burst onto the scene in 2000 and nine by a group of five artists who wanted to create Like an inspiring and influential place the champion activism and gave our next generation our generation. Why are millennials a new voice in contemporary theatre? And I.

"Beattie, and if you've only just joined us here is a rapid recap of what you missed. In the first half of the show. Oscar winning actor Emma Stone talked about playing Carella. Hollywood director Zack Snyder told us about his love of zombie movies, and we heard the definition of black music, according to British vocalist and jazz musician Cleveland Watkiss coming up in this part of the show. In a moment, the British star Cush jumbo talks about her intense new role. There's music from Cora maestro Toumani Diabate and best selling author Brit Bennett on her book about racial identity in 19 fifties America. One of the difficulties of writing about passing is that there's often not a long record of people who have done this if you have successfully passed and you don't want anyone to know that you've done something, and it was difficult for me, as you know, again in 21st century black person. To try to imagine this woman making this choice that is pretty inconceivable to me. And passing is a phenomenon that will hear more about later in the show, and I'll be talking to one of my guests. Artists Layla Bavaria about her new exhibition, which is hearing First, then the British actor Cush Jumbo is perhaps best known outside the U. K for her role as Lucca Quinn, the whip, smart lawyer in the CBS legal drama the Good Wife. And its spin off the good fight. Her latest TV role, sees her playing Francis, a grieving mother in the drama. The Beast must die. It's set on the Isle of Wight here in the UK and follows Francis after her son is killed in a hit and run accident. She becomes intent on avenging his death by hunting down and killing the man that she believes was behind the wheel of the car. Chris Jumbo spoke to the BBC's Now Hello, Tanaka about the intense experience of playing Francis. I'm not a method actor. I use substitution, so don't stay in character the whole time. I don't try to kind of destroy myself to create a character. But I use a lot of subs substitute of processes so I can get into somebody and when you're doing that much grief Or rage or revenge. You can put it down and go home. But what happens is is that your brain knows you're playing a character. But your body doesn't So if you cry for six hours of the die or the screen, or you do a stunt over and over again where you're being held down Which this could have. This happens quite a lot in the theater. Actually, you kind of at the end of the day. Okay. Bye, Spike Isolator. And then at the weekend, your severely depressed and you don't know why. And it's just because your body is really smart, really smart thing and it's like, well, we cried every day this week. So what? What the hell is up with us? Like what? What's going on with us? Because apparently, we're just going for brunch. With our family. You told us this week that we were grieving. So what's going on? So It was a new challenge for me Filming wise because with a play you have An arc to work that out and let it go with filming. You go backwards and forwards. He's dead. He's not dead. He's dead. He's not dead. And, um, you have to kind of I like to map. Where I am, depending on which scene because you could be doing any part of her story at any one time, but you have to be in that level of green immediately at that point. So so, Yeah, it was real challenge, but I love I just love challenges. There were a couple of therapy sessions that I had with my online therapist during this job, right? Okay. And is that is that the first time that has happened with a job? The first time that's happened with us, too. With an on screen job. Yeah. Yeah, I know. I know what my triggers are, and you just need someone to help you separate things out. And then you're back on track again. And that means you have to know what your what your processes are, and then you're okay. That's fascinating that you took yourself to that place. Even without delving into a method form. It still left such a trace on you. Playing gases, and that's how I know I'm not. I don't want to be a method actor. You know, it might have been my makeup and how I'm made or what? I'm I can access. I think possibly that would be a step too far for me. Chris Jumbo. My guests today are artists. Layla Barbarian, who is in New York and here in London. In the studio with me. Film critic Rich Kline Rich first of all, could you as somebody who sees so many performances on screen throughout the year. Could you tell whether an actor has ever he's giving a method performance? Um, I think a good actor you can't tell because a very good technical actor who can create these emotions on screen without actually living them like a method actor is living these emotions. If they're really good at it. You can't tell when you're watching the performance. The only way you would know is if you were on the set and you watch them come out of their character, but not come out, just studying or not come out of it and kind of grow at you and what and stomp away you think what's wrong with you? But I think some of the best actors and probably the busiest factors are ones who are not method actors because they're A bit more sane. Layla, do you ever find the need to compartmentalize yourself while creating art? I think yes. Wouldn't be the answer, Especially when you're into something with like, I think my My profession is quite different from Oct Ingle doing movies because as for me, I don't have nobody to direct me. I don't have nobody to tell me. What To do And it all comes when I'm in the right mood when I'm in the mood of creating them in there. I don't want to get out of the studio. I wouldn't think about grocery shopping out and think about doing anything until something is done. That is what I do. Okay, So if there's nothing crosses my mind, Yeah, I know that feeling when I'm writing, I won't even hear my phone ring right? Because I'm so I'm so focused on what I'm doing..

You're not sunny generous on this question. I i have other single. I am citing immu slightly. That you say that william. Because what i'm saying is i keep saying this. Is that if it's right if you have a concern that you raised a concern but at the same time as i'm saying to you i have a concern i'm also saying to is. I'm not going to block anything you know. I don't have the power. And i wouldn't do it anyway but i'm still right for me to raise a concern that funny to simply say that as a political party we're going to give you that blind check and you just sign up blank check but we're not going to fill it into signed you know that's not the way it works. All i going to do all we do. And i think it's right to do is to raise any concerns that we have. That's what we will do. I think that's fair. I think everybody will do something similar at some stage and indeed when the new decade new approach Cultural package is delivered. And i think it will be delivered. So when it's delivered there will be other people will say. Well i've got a concern that what's been delivered hasn't gone far enough concern. Let me take you onto legacy questions. You and your party have been consistently opposed to the stolen hosts agreement You've made arguments you know. It's limited two murders committed in the territory of northern ireland limits. The number of potential investigations in effect will eventually draw a line under a possible investigations. There others say. Look twenty three years after the good friday agreement. Isn't it time to draw a line under the past to move on. Perhaps with either an amnesty a statute of limitations are meat. Maybe even an agreement that no one will serve any jail time. Whatever the solution to that happens to be because that is what happens when wars come to an end. What do you say to those people. I say that's a fair argument. William took for anybody to think that's the way to go forward absolutely Except that people have that argument that that's what we should do able to move society forward and we should not denigrate anybody who comes forward and says that's what we should be trying to do in order to improve life for our children who will be the ones who will continue to suffer this in in in the future. My concern is this is if we start. Denying the ability to people have justice Than than we really are. I'm undermining where do we stop in. regards to. This mean the thirty s and we have to do is manage people's expectations and that's really important and there's a good chance that many people will not get at the justice that they that they want even get the information that they want but some people that there might have the opportunity and we've seen that in the past were cases in twenty thirty or forty years old to come up with them with the information and the ability to to to bring people to court so we as a party or not in support of any form of amnesty. Ever certainly not in support of any equivalence between the security forces on terrorists. We think there's other ways of doing this The storm in house agreement is exclusionary at..

Greg Jackson Reads Where You'll Find Me by Ann Beattie
"We're going to hear where you'll find me by an beady which was published in the New Yorker in March of nineteen eighty six. What's wrong with me? Howard says it's almost the first time he's looked at me since I arrived. I've been trying not to register my boredom and my frustration with cates paddle. Maybe we should get a tree. I say I don't think it's Christmas. That's making me feel this way. Howard says the story was chosen. Greg Jackson whose debut Story Collection Prodigal was published in two thousand sixteen. Hi Greg Hi Deborah. So you once a student of. Nbd's right. I was wearing. When was that? I was her student at the University of Virginia in twenty eleven. Two thousand. Twelve I had a workshop with her and she was then my thesis adviser and I chose her as my thesis adviser because she never liked any of my work and I thought what better person to learn from I I knew in some sense that She was right in that. My work wasn't very good but I didn't really know why I thought if I just hung out with her for a really long time. I'd figure out what she knew that I didn't did that. Work you know it's funny. It didn't really work and I think this is like the side of teaching writing. That's impossible but she did. Tell me a number of things that were so true that when I was able to understand what she was saying I realized if I'd gotten it at the time it would have helped a lot but it's one of those things where you have to actually experience. The truth fit in practice. She was dead on. But it's just it's hard to like here maxim and be like. Oh yeah that's what I should be doing my writing. Yeah and at that time. Had you read a lot of her work? I'd rather fair number. Her stories partly coming into Virginia. I knew that she was one of the people I was really excited about studying with but I can't say that I had a kind of comprehensive career. What was it that appealed to you about the stories that you dread will. They were so different from what I was doing and probably different from in some ways from what I've gone on to You know I think sometimes people apply. This term minimalism and I think she rebels against that term and I understand why. I don't think she's minimalist but I did. Think of myself at the time as maximalist trying to kind of fit as much of all the nuance at any given moment into When I was writing and I felt like with her there was some ability to just say less than I ever would have been comfortable saying and somehow in saying last two or something that so kind of rich and mysterious in just itself kind of discipline that I didn't have him still don't really have. Yeah and when you chose this story where you'll find me which I think you said you now teach. Was that a story. You knew back then. Is it a story that you came to later? It's one of my probably two or three very favorites of hers. I've loved teaching this story because it seems on the surface very straightforward But it actually has such depth and reservoirs of symbol and metaphor in sort of deep structures. That it's very fun and interesting to work with students to see how something can kind of work just completely on the surface level and kind of have these steps that you drop into. Well maybe we should drop into them now and then we can talk a little more. So now here's Greg Jackson reading where you'll find me by NBD where you'll find me friends. Keep calling my broken arm. A broken wing. It's the left arm now folded against my chest and kept in place of the blue scarfs. Sling that is knotted behind my neck in ways too much ever to have been winglike. The accident happened when I ran for a bus. I tried to stop it from pulling away by shaking my shopping bags like Maracas in the air. And that's when I slipped on the ice and went down so I took the train from New York City to Sarah Toga yesterday. Instead of driving I had the perfect excuse not to go to Saratoga to visit my brother at all but once I had geared up for it I decided to go through with the trip and avoid guilt. It isn't Howard. I mind but his wife's two children a girl of eleven and a boy of three beck either pays no attention to her brother Todd or else. She tortures him last winter. She used to taunt him by stalking around the House on his heels clumping close behind him wherever he went which made him run and scream at the same time. Kate did not intervene until both children became hysterical and we could no longer shout over their voices. I think I like it. That their physical. She said maybe if they enact some of their hostility like this they won't grow up with a habit of getting what they want by playing mind games with other people. It seems to me that they will not ever grow up but will burn out like meteors Howard has finally found what he wants the opposite of domestic tranquillity. For six years he lived in Oregon with Pale Passive Woman. On the rebound. He married even Paler. Pre Med student named Francine that marriage lasted less than a year and then on a blind date in Los Angeles. He met Kate whose husband was away on a business trip to Denmark. Just then in no time. Kate and her daughter an infant son moved in with him to the studio apartment in. Laguna beach. He was sharing with screenwriter. The two men had been working on a script about Medgar Evers but when Kate and the children moved in they switched to writing a screenplay about what happens when a man meets a married woman with two children on a blind date and the three of them move in with him and his friend. Then Howard's collaborator got engaged in moved out in the screenplay was abandoned. Howard accepted a last minute. Invitation to teach writing at an upstate. College New York and within a week. They were all ensconced in a drafty Victorian House in Saratoga. Kate's husband had begun divorce proceedings before she moved in with Howard but eventually he agreed not to sue for custody of Becky and Todd in exchange for child support payments that were less than half of what his lawyer thought he would have to pay now. He sends the children enormous stuffed animals that they have little or no interest in with notes that say put this mom zoo a stuffed toy every month or so giraffes a life sized German shepherd and overstuffed standing bear in every time the same note the bear stands in one corner of the kitchen and people have gotten in the habit of pinning notes to it reminders. To buy milk or get the oil changed in the car. Wraparound sunglasses have been added. Scarves and jackets sometimes draped on its arms. Sometimes the stuffed German shepherd is brought over propped up with its paws placed on the bears haunt imploring. It right now in the kitchen with the bear. I've just turned up the thermostat. The first one up in the morning is supposed to do that. And I'm dunking a teabag in a Mug of hot water for some reason it's impossible for me to make tea with loose tea and the t-ball unless I have help. The only t bag I could find was emperor's choice. I sit in one of the kitchen chairs to drink the tea. The chair seems to stick to me. Even though I have on Mo- long johns and along Flannel nightgown. The chairs are plastic. Very nineteen fifties patterned with shapes that. Look sometimes geometric sometimes almost human little things like malformed hands reach out toward triangles and squares. I asked Howard and Kate got the kitchen set at an auction for thirty dollars. They thought it was funny. The House itself is not funny. It has four fireplaces wide board floors and high dusty ceilings. They bought it with his share of an inheritance that came to us. When our grandfather died cates contribution to restoring the house has been transforming. The baseboards into faux marble. How effective this is has to do with how stone she is when she starts. Sometimes the baseboards looked like clotted versions of the Kitchen. Chair pattern instead of marble cake considers what she calls parenting to be a full-time job. When I moved to Saratoga she used to give piano lessons now. She ignores the children and paints the baseboards in. Who Am I to stand in judgment? I'm a thirty eight year old woman. Out of a job on tenuous enough footing with her sometime lover that she can imagine crashing emotionally as easily as she did on the ice. It may be true as my lover. Frank says that having money is not good for the soul money that is given you that is he is a lawyer who also has money but it is. Money earned parlayed into more money by investing in real estate and urban farm as part of this real estate boxes of herbs keep turning up at Frank's office herbs and foil herbs and plastic bags dried herbs wrapped in cones of newspaper. He crumbles them for Omelettes ROASTS VEGETABLES HIS OPPOSED TO SALT. He insists herbs are more healthful. And who am I to claim to love a man when I am skeptical even about his use of herbs? I'm embarrassed to be an employed. I'm insecure enough to stay with someone because of the look that sometimes comes into his eyes when he makes love to me. I'm a person who secretly shakes on. Salt in the kitchen then comes out with her plate. Smiling as Basil is crumbled over the tomatoes sometimes in our bed his finger smell of Rosemary. Tarragon strong smells sour. Smells whatever Shakespeare says or whatever is written in culpeper complete herbal. I cannot imagine that herbs have anything to do with love but many brides to be come to the herb farm and by branches of herbs to stick in their bouquets they their wrists with herbal extracts to smell mysterious. They believed that herbs. Bring Them Luck. These days they want tubs of Rosemary in their houses. Not fakest trees. I got in right on the cusp of the new world. Frank says he isn't kidding for the Christmas party tonight. They're cherry tomatoes halved and stuffed with peaks of cheese mushrooms stuffed with pureed tomatoes tomatoes stuff with chop mushrooms and mushroom stuffed with cheese caters laughing in the kitchen. No one's going to notice she mutters. No one's going to say anything. Why don't we put out some nuts? Howard says nuts are so conventional. This is funny. Kate says squirting more soft cheese out of a pastry tube year. We had mistletoe mulled CIDER. Last year we lost their sense of humor. What happened that? We got all hyped up. We even ran out on Christmas Eve to cut a tree. The kids Howard says that's right. She says the kids were crying. They were feeling competitive with the other kids or something. Becky was crying. Todd was too young to cry about that Howard says why are we talking about tears? Kate says we can talk about tears when it's not the season to be jolly everybody's going to come in tonight and loved the res on the picture hooks and the food is so festive. We invited a new Indian guy from the philosophy department. Howard says American Indian Not Indian from India if we want we can watch the tapes of jewel in the crown. Kate says I'm feeling really depressed. Howard says backing up to the counter and sliding down until he rests on his elbows his tennis shoes or wet. He never takes off his wet shoes and he never gets colds.

"It was lunch. I think that's true. That's a very good observation. They do I kind of went right by you. Madam Ruez promptly on her back back on the floor telling away or exactly exactly so yes. You're right so we know she's paid a price. Everybody seems particularly restricted in their in their emotions. In in in the story to me. Yeah she's exhausted by the tension of having to Juggle. You know her. Her husband's needs and demands with her intense love for her awkward brother. WHO's GonNa say the wrong thing? You know exactly exactly exactly and then we just have to take it on faith that the couple understands the others you know facial expression and even understands what one must do like. Oh Oh probably he thinks that Aberlardo thinks that we're going to be longer than so maybe I should run to the kitchen. I mean it becomes pretty labyrinthine. You don't need too many examples of that to say that this is the convention that they've decided on it. I found it very funny ultimately extremely and of course I mean I I certainly certainly identify with Aberlardo too you know. And why can't she just say I mean there. It is to in that little distilled moment when she says it's ready and then she thinks Mike God. This is a Faux Pas. What what's wrong with it? It is read wasn't what she was told to say. You know she should announce luncheon served or you know exactly. Yeah who do you think May Moscow is GonNa wants us to feel for in the story. I mean. Should it be member way. WHO's bearing the burden of everybody's failures you know from Aberlardo the to her brother to her husband falling asleep at the table or Should it be Pascal. Who's just kind of A witness wide-eyed right. I'd witness to everything or should be day who's clearly never gonNa have a degree or a fulfilled life though that may not be what he wants. Well Oh you know when you ask the question that way it kind of points up for me. The visceral feeling that I had in this story which is one of great loss. You know like opportunities missed. I don't mean literally I mean Inter personally In Paul's just kind of he would be the free remover except that he's almost like a stand in for the writer he's almost just there to be the observer and so I I do think it's Pascal story but there would be no story even for Pasquale Without Day so of course you the story today. Yeah and you mentioned earlier that it was the the visuals of the story that drew you and the most which what did you mean by that? Well she works like a camera I mean if she wants to go in close up she does if she wants to withdraw she does it's She's very daring and she suggests that we might also so imaginatively Goto the mind of the larva. Who's in the kitchen? And then we might go back to the table and meanwhile days doing something else I think it's like like that is a kind of controlled chaos within within the story and it's a different way that the writers perceiving than the individuals would proceed. It almost seemed like everything's technicolor. Sometimes but then it goes right back to grab Yeah it's very cinematic. It's it's it's made us go on holding that camera and kind of whirling around on on her Dolly but never in a show off away you know. I really have no personal acquaintance with people like this. I absolutely believe the reality of this. It almost seems like maybe a lead into a fairy retail. Gone wrong or something like that. I just think that she she puts the elements there. She deals with them uniquely. She doesn't let the Avi. ISP Some he is going to manifest itself in the story and determine the story but really these are all they're kind of they're not shards but the story is sort of like Confetti. That's been tossed tossed up. And if not for that question by the boy at the end I I don't know that it would be the same story in other words. Everything that he calculated was going to be salvation to him. All the subjugating all the denial complicity all that kind of stuff that too could be taken away from you which is really kind of horrific and revelatory notion. Yeah taken away but the result is pass cows perhaps someone he wants to be But the mother becomes very ambiguous at the end of and she. I mean that that her real I love his day day and then suddenly he. Isn't you know well. And she's she's hoping for a reason to make him that again. Yeah thank you so much and it was a pleasure.

"Or maybe doesn't because he's taken the magistrates favorite appetizer Do you think we're supposed to read days act as an act of bravery or an act of stupidity It's hard to judge someone when you are convinced as I was at least when I was reading that they're just acting spontaneously it seems to be kind of sidestepping are having having to do that so it becomes more complicated in a way. The WASPS are just inherently so frightening to the reader. You know that you think there's going to be a crisis. It's going to be directly involved with these wasps that certainly somebody's GonNa get Stung et Cetera et Cetera. But things don't turn out as one one might predict and that seems to pertain to the larger story itself because no no one would have imagined that this this was where and how the story was going to end and at the end you know. Yeah I can't always tell in the course of the story what we're supposed to think what galant thinks is going on with day day. Is he just eccentric as he completely delusional is he mentally ill or is he. Just kind of a hapless kid who doesn't quite know what he's doing thing I agree with you I. I wouldn't know an easy label to put on him either. And I think even within whatever he's functioning as he's an odd behold right. I mean it you kind of like it that the that the magistrate Knicks Nicknames Him Harpo because that brings in the whole idea of slapstick stick comedy and all that kind of stuff. That isn't inappropriate. What I couldn't fit into the story as well as I would like to though is the the setting things on fire fire and we're never there in the moment when he does it so we don't really know It's almost like he's just sort of the incarnation of chaos. which is the last thing the magistrate and his wife want in their orderly world and yet there is and yet there he is and and he seems drawn danger? You know yes dives in with the WASP. So maybe he's just fascinated by fire. We never see anything from his perspective. We only see how other people react to him. Yeah yeah very hard to do to create a character in which the character doesn't just seem to be moved by Marionette strings or something like that when that's true but I do think even when he bursts out with a little bit of fragment and he's trying to tell what he thinks is funny story. Dogged better I mean you just feel for everyone concerned you. You know when people do that you don't know where to look and you don't know quite what to say but there he is. He's existing emotionally certainly in his own reality but it kind of finds its parallel for different reasons in the young boy. WHO's still being formed? You know your family is what your family is. When when you're that age they may embarrass you? Whatever you know however kids of that age want to characterize it but you're part of that unit and so the only freedom from that really is data? Yeah an an in a sense. Data is not so unlike His sister Madam brewers she And she even she ends the story kind of sitting smiling to herself in the way that that data is to do is wonder I wonder you wonder a little. What is happening in in her mind to you know? She seems very She's gone into this very conventional national marriage but in fact the way she met her husband was she was walking home and sort of aimlessly picks up a rock to throw because she's ended up in the middle of a student protest test. Yeah and then he comes along so she puts it down and off. They go exactly so her. Motivations are also completely really obscure. I agree totally but but I think also you always get that kind of push. pull or that sort of unspoken agreement with the magistrate and Pascal's mother. You know they there was something more subversive going on before the moment of the story but we begin the story when they've arrived at some sort of implicit understanding with one another and it's kind of a sealed system. You know you see you see like the the aftershock of something. I guess is what you see here. Rather than any of the moments that other writers would think was their most sensational material and dramatize homeadvisor it. Right that's all it's all in the past. That's all off stage. Yeah an away. She gives us the end. I the first jump back in time. MM is to the magistrate asking Pasco. What he wants to be one day what he wants to do one day and it's clear he has to make a choice between his father's way away and his mother and data and foresee says I want to be like data? They're all going. Oh my God no no no And then and by the time he's fourteen he's become you know the spitting image of his father in many ways so he made that choice. Yes yes he did but then when the very ending comes I'm just you know chilled by the awareness of the magistrate assessing him and trying to make make an educated guess about what really will become of his son as though as though one is to be judged by what they become. Yeah not not not a very pleasant warm feeling in in a way no any and she galant refers to the the assessing look is neither hot and cold steady so we don't quite know what the fathers judging What is what is conclusions? I suppose right So with with day and that that sliding room and the sister who just adores him. What do you think is going on? It's as though the structure of his family did as family has been built around keeping him contained in safe. And everyone's got to jump a jump around in the ends with his mother buying him an apartment In a different kind of Paris. Yeah like like they would like it very much if he. It's fine that he exists this but could he please do it in a parallel reality. Yeah Yeah but his sisters just so desperate to love him and passing the strawberry jam. It's hard to know how that dynamic was created or what it's based on your it is I guess I guess S.. It didn't seem all that mysterious in that. I mean what I would bring into the story or any story. I suppose Considering a family only in this way is that sense of privacy within families and it's almost as though galant dovetails her own sensibility to to that like well there. I might let them reveal themselves. But I'm not going to betray them. And it is ultimately kind of withholding but it seems to me to be quite zapped because it takes different forms. But they're both very reticent people the Magistrate Really would like it if people were simply you know replicans of himself and and the mother. It's a little. It is a little less clear and that bond that she feels that with her brother is real also. Why does she stop acting on it? You know why does time just pass and suddenly days elsewhere. And he doesn't even come to dinner anymore clearly. Something's happened. Yeah you get sent sent back the lights. That fire endures this terrible day in which she's got to put on this lunch while knowing that the upstairs full of smoke and and He gets sent off and then three years go by And then he's changed so but I suppose is to meet the implication was he'd been somehow institutionalized or treated or something but we we can't really no. Yeah no well. Certainly I mean fair enough to you. Know think there's some inference there. Of course there must have. There must have been something but I like I like the way to you hear about this dreary job that he has but even the specifics of that fit into the other world of the story in a lot of ways so you know what is he doing. He's calling people and asking. What did you watch on television last night versus? What do you wish you had watched? And that's no different than the minor characters early in the story. That went on a honeymoon honeymoon to the wrong place. If they had to do over again they would do it elsewhere but you know that says so much and then of course the parents have left. Whatever more active active past? They've had and they forced this bond for safety with one another. There was a whole life before the world of the story before the moment at which galant decided to start narrating The one the one hint we get about Adam Brewery and ended his childhood. Is this Vision Pascal has of of their mother. His grandmother Getting Your Chin and vice grip rip and making you look her in the eye and at that point he says there's no way not to then have some secret hidden self that's retreating from that Um and you get the sense not not necessarily of an abusive parent but of someone who tried to deny privacy S The example. These these poor children to sort of created in a in a kind of dreamworld. Yes that's very well. Yeah it is a kind of dream world isn't it. I hadn't thought about that but you can see also the proclivity turn inward if you were in effect tortured in that way right. Yeah I mean that's and that is kind of eloquently Lee written at that. Yeah you could make somebody look right in the eye but there's another person inside you and you you can't get the soul of that person you can only you can only technically glee engage them. You can't you can't do more than that. Yeah that that person was is not meeting your gaze. That's exactly right. Yeah Yeah Creep in is really I mean it just seems to me to be. You know you've always got these things like the wasp might bite. The mother might go even farther Arthur and you know really beat these children or something like that. So there's always a sense that you're not sure that we're even as play within the confines of the story and the story Ori It seems to me has something to do with ineffective false sense of security. You know trying to keep the world at bay but I I mean there might be the WASPS and data might not be there and in any other story the Wasp would have been brought there to bite. You know it's that that's what I love about Mavis Gallant Achie- she. She knows the move. She knows literally what others would do and she just doesn't go near Yeah and and we in a sense get get to slightly conflicting possible endings for Pascal or possible future for Pascal because we know at the beginning that he's just like his dad an the end we know that he's actually quite like day day Physically at least and there's no way of knowing desperate future. That's all right. Yeah there's that Sense that right in the first paragraph that he's dissembling a little you know. He's hiding the details of his new school so uh he doesn't get shipped off to boarding school. That's true I hadn't thought about that. That does that does fit into the pattern very well. Yeah so he may also have learned to keep the secret self somewhere. Yes yes yes. That's yeah yeah. I think about this this this interminable awful lunch which never ends ends and the poor. Magistrate never gets enough food because he served last Galant is just so perfect with all the social cultural all signal fires and of Bourgeoisie Culture and France in this period. I mean no one else could take you so so closely in there but at the same time. Why is this lunch? Such an ordeal. I mean it's just eight people sitting down to eat. What sounds like a delicious meal making small talk? Yeah but everyone's on edge I would. I would assume though that you know I mean I. I can't typify the French by the way you know people who are phobic would say Oh oh you know they have such standards. I mean whatever the cliches are but certainly she puts them under that cloud of that kind of stereotype They're they're they're all worth watching. They're all understood through their unique neurosis. Basically that we get to watch. We can't look away from I I mean that horrible piece of endlessly cut pie or whatever it is and finally even Aberlardo says you know. That's it. I mean when you want me to do ruin at totally totally and make it only crumbs but it says oh all of these people control is the word I mean. All of these people are working very hard to stay within certain parameters that that are socially convenient but it doesn't offer us their inner life except to say that this is a pressure. Sure Coker and it can't be they must be paying some price for acting as they act and it also just goes on forever they leave at quarter to five..
Ann Beattie Reads Mavis Gallant
"Hi Anne Hi Deborah so you mentioned for me that you read the story for the first time last summer how did you come across it then. I'm Visiting writer at the University of Virginia this fall and I have to give to public talks and I was pulling books off of my shelf just looking for different examples. Awesome things that I wanted to mention in those talks and I pulled down the best American short stories of the eighties which was edited by Shannon. Ravenhill and I thought. Oh if I've never heard of this Mavis askelon story. It just blew me away. I mean I just loved it I WANNA do nothing. But think about this Mavis gallant store. What was it about the story that surprised you well? I could answer that in a lot of ways. I think but the way that she moves through time you know. I think I think that the liberty she takes with those leaps and it's happening all over the place I mean she. She works like a dragonfly or something. She's really amazing. uh-huh had you been a fan of Mavis glance work before that I am but you know I don't know it anywhere near as well as I should I find such immediacy. See in her writing that I always like it. I don't know why I love this quite as much as I love it. I really found this an incredibly startling story the visuals I think part rid of it. The the imagery of it. Yeah the imagery of it It's it's set Or as written unpublished more than thirty years ago. I think on the eve. Steve of the nineteen ninety-one French presidential elections. Does it feel to you so it belongs to a different era or does it feel completely undated. I did I noticed the politics of it. You know but it. I didn't know that I didn't know what you just told me. And I think that's very interesting but it didn't really seem to be an an enormous factor except to make this very believable in terms of the kind of conversation that was held. And you know the way galant tells you people's opinions the we'll we'll talk some more after the story and now here's an beady Reading Day Day by Mavis Gallant Day. Pascal Breuer a is fourteen now he used to attend a lycee but after his parents found out about the dealers in the street outside the gates they changed to a private school here. The situation is about the same but he hasn't said so he does not want to be removed again. This time perhaps perhaps to a boarding establishment away from Paris with nothing decent to eat and lights out at ten. He would not describe himself as contriving or secretive. He tries to avoid drawing attention to the responsibility clause in the treaty that governs peace between generations like his father the magistrate he will offer neutrality before launching into descend. I'm ready to admit he will begin or I don't want to take over the whole conversation. Sometimes the sentence comes to nothing like his father. He lets his eyelids. Droop tries to speak it lightly and slowly. The magistrate is famous for fading out of discussion by slow degrees at one time he was said to be the youngest magistrate. It ever to fall asleep in court. He would black out when he thought he wasn't needed and snap to justice. The case turned around. Apparently he never missed S. churning. He has described his own mind to Pascal. It is like a superlatively smooth car with an invisible driver in control. All the driver is the magistrates unconscious. Will to Paschal a mind is a door ajar or shut. His grades. Rates are good but this side of brilliant. He has a natural gift a precise perfectly etched. Memory how will he use it. He thinks think cicadas easily. Become an actor as a lawyer when he tells his parents so they seem not to mind he could turn into an actor manager with the private the theater of his own or the director of one of the great national theaters. Commissioning new work refurbishing the classics settling questions at issue. With a word or two. The brewers are tolerant parents. Ready for anything. They met for the first time in May of nineteen sixty sixty eight a few yards away from a barricade of burning cars. She had a stone in her hand when she saw him looking at her. She put it down on. They walked up the boulevard. Sam Michel together and he told her his plan for reforming the judiciary. He was a bit older about twenty six six answering his question. She said she was from all sauce. He reminded her how the poet Paul Awad had picked up his future. Wife David the street on a rainy evening. She was from all sauce to and starving and in a desperate muddled amateurish way pretending to be a prostitute. Well this was not quite the same story in nineteen sixty eight. The Future Madam. blu-ray was studying to be an analyst analysts handwriting with employment to follow so she had been promised in the personnel section of a large department store. In the meantime she was staying with the Protestant reformed church pastor and his family in rufous. Still Do Kuan Sh. She had been on her way home to dinner when she stopped up to pick up the stone she had a mother in all sauce and a little brother on me day day day Sylvia and I have known both with sides of the barricades. The magistrate likes to say now what he means is that they cannot be crowded into a political corner. The stone own in the hand has made a rebel. At least in his recollections. She never look at a newspaper because of her reputation for being against absolutely everything so he says but perhaps it isn't exact. She looks at the pages mart culture to see what is on the galleries. He reads three morning papers tapers at breakfast and if he has time lest evenings lemonde reading he narrows his eyes sometimes he looks as though everything he thinks and believes had been translated into a foreign language and suddenly back again when Pascal was about nine his father said what do you suppose you will do one day. They were at breakfast. Pascal's Uncle Day. was there like everyone else. What's Pascal called Him Day Day? Pascal looked across at him and said I want to be a bachelor like day day. His mother moaned. Oh no and covered overturn face. The magistrate waited until she had recovered before speaking. She looked up smiling. Bit embarrassed then he explained and slowly and carefully. The day was too young to be considered a bachelor. He was a student a youth a student a student. He repeated thinking perhaps that if he kept saying it day would study hard. Data had a button of knows that looked ridiculous on someone so tall will and a massive curly fair hair because of the hair the magistrate could not take him seriously his private name for day was Harpo Harpo that period of POSCO's life nine rounding ten was also the autumn before an important election year. The elections were five months off but already people argued over dinner and Sunday lunch one Sunday in October. The table was attacked by wasps drawn in from the garden. Pardon by a dish of sliced Mellon the last of the season particularly fragrant and sweet. The French doors to the garden stood open sunlight. Sunlight entered and struck through the wine decanters and dissolved in the wax tabletop in Pale red and gold from his place. Plus call call could see the enclosed garden the apartment blocks behind it a golden poplar tree and the wicker chairs where the guests earlier are had sat with their drinks. There were two couples the Trabant US older than Pascal's parents and the Chevalier cliches. Who who had not been married long madam? Chevalier Crochet attended an art history. Course with pus calls mother on Thursday afternoons. They had never been here before and were astonished to discover a secret garden in Paris with chairs grass. A Garden Ray. A tree just as their expression of amazement was starting to run thin and patches of silence appeared Abelardo newly come from Kadi's appeared at the the door and called them to lunch. She said it's ready though. That was not what am brew a had asked her to say at least not that way. The guests got up without haste. They were probably as hungry as Pasquale but didn't want to show ebbelaar went on standing staring at the top. Most leaves of the poplar trying to remember what she ought to have said a few minutes later just as they were starting to eat their Mellon. wasps came thudding outing against the table like pebbles thrown the adults froze as though someone had drawn a gun posco news. That sitting still was a good way. Eighty stung if you wave. Your napkin shouted orders. The Wasp might fly away but he was not expected to give instructions. He was is here with adults to discover how conversation is put together how to sound interesting without being forward amusing without seeming. Familiar failure at that moment day didn't unprecedented and courageous thing. He picked up the platter of Melon Crawling with wasps and took it outside. Aside as far as the foot of the tray and came back to applause at least his sister clapped and young Madam. Chevalier Crochet Cried Bravo although Bravo. Day smiled but then he was always smiling. His sister wish he wouldn't. The smile gave his brother-in-law another the reason for calling him Harpo sitting down he seemed to become entwined with this chair. He was too tall ever to be comfortable. He needed larger chairs tables that were both higher and wider so that he would not bump his knees or put his feet on the shoes of the lady sitting opposite Pascal. Father Father just said so no Marm Ellen. It was something he particularly liked and there might be none now until that summer. If data had asked his opinion instead of jumping up so impulsively he might of said. Just leave it and take a chance on getting stung. Well no more for anyone. The guests sat a little straighter waiting for the next course beef veal or mutton or the possibility of Duck Pascal's mother asked him to shut the French doors. He did not expect another wasp invasion. But there might be strays madam. Chevalier Crochet roce remarked. That Moscow was tall for his age then asked what his age was. He is almost ten said Madam brew a looking at her son was some. I'm wonder I can hardly believe it. I don't understand time Madam. Turbo said she did not have to consult a watch to know the exact time. It must be quarter to two now if it was her daughter. Brigitte had just landed in Salonika whenever her daughter boarded a plane. Madame tour ban a- accompanied her in her. Mind Minute by minute thessalonica Monsieur. Turban explained the Chevalier Crochet had spent honeymoon in Sicily. If they had it to do over again they said they would change their mind. and go to Greece Madame.

city because they can't afford to pay taxes on their grandmother's House Got Thirty Thousand Dollar House yeah our eggs yeah you know maybe two three thousand hour days when they used to pay nine hundred dollars yeah yeah no so change the situation when it comes to the financial grass just a little bit of money people say well be able to keep your home but if you WanNa fix income outside support you can't do it things coming to grandma's yeah yeah it's barely grandma's older and then you know how people today don't work together you know families don't work together to try to save the home anything everybody put together everybody's you know in our community the worst thing is about speaking about this earlier how we don't work together collectively not that we can do we used our community they worked together you know they put their money together for food and we write our name on food my who is my yeah that's great and we're in the house instead of working collectively in order to get another house for another four family that's in there because some family some houses have multi yeah what families yeah yeah yeah and then so but we're now you know we want to show at each cook right so let's go let's go down to start at the bottom to heal coming from uptown all the way up babies for row will you see where they're doing the trolley line and the construction so I've heard that babies Rose GonNa like South Boulevard like where they justify south boulevard as for row will be sad with what South Boulevard wasn't China we talk about South Boulevard I mean what's the very they call that area South in Oh yes yeah salvant he's the all blacks yelling that south in area you got the wheel boy area now that's been changed totally I mean they're going to trade dollar anyway you see downtown it after a while it's going to be very expensive as you can afford to stay there the to a gentleman the other day and he said at first they were talking about everything within a five mile radius of uptown would be gentrified now he's saying that's extended to ten mile circle of opportunity it is either downtown yeah wow so what are we going to do breath I mean is there any way because the players have already been laid out and they just need people to accept it now it is asking I mean we're all of them I mean I mean that's been since the beginning of time you can't stop money unless you got money right so if you're like you say if you had money you'd stay wherever you want us to use you live wherever you live I mean the money will push you out then and then if you don't move they will send in the feds they will send in the police yeah I mean a a lot of people in our community we don't do the the most things a lot of illegal gone in our community so how do you know and then from there by the time that everybody the jail they get back because they oh God oh situation on Jane so let me ask you a Donald Dixon is talking with us today we're talking about Charlotte gentrification Betas for a row so we city has all black elected officials in every major category right why why is this happening in our city like this are they speaking up my leg I think the Charlotte doesn't have a truly ship for our community before the American community I don't think they truly got out they got people cutting throats in somebody's else's pockets have our our community mind with anything 'cause I mean you can see that when when when the gentleman got killed here you can see that with how Jennifer occasions it's going rampant while I mean it's going to be totally different as being about Ebola there's no different between all citizens Charlotte but we are not sitting down together to figure out a way to make sure that we have some type of stance get to where we gotta stay on community or an identification in our community Adwa which you call them immigrants as well we're GONNA be pushed off until one of those one of those those little things with the on it they're gonNA they're gonNA push we're not gonNA have anything that we own collectively or say that it is ours and that just house turn out what do you think should happen now what we're saying earlier Betas for road is like this is all just as I last dance base for Rotas pipeline of the black community they base for road so is there any thing that you're thinking that we could do collectively as a group to make sure that we preserve this area as our so you can do collect this group is is the people out who about a lever because by about as lead where your department said years honored the script but the people are about to leave this or just getting older no people who are getting older have a resource and have opportunities title they need to get together and make a change without allowing the no other people who don't have our sake like people working against arise to because they embiid with other people yes you're right I mean there's no color to money a separate agreement on a dollar so you know and as you know that just our our ends up when it's all said and done the communities will be changed we'll be in better which is not wrong there's nothing wrong with making a community better longest we have a plan where we're not ostracized now a whole culture yeah culture but this is like what happened to the Palestinians and the Israelis is the same thing there's rallies mood in today land come on and push them out as active and don't didn't give them they don't have no say 'cause they'll have no representation you know let me tell you what's bad thing about it local high schools made the money in West shall be one of the best schools in Charlotte I'm talking about a due to education and Doodo sport yes so how do you feel a wonderful school but they ain't going was going on with this that that coaches being took it all we have now all making now in these new communities is breweries and bakeries you don't even have cornerstone too much yeah I was I was over in Charlotte down people trying to get a young boy now and and I was like man I say y'all have taken away all the culture yeah he's like I can't wait to his done wow like literally citizen front I can't wait I can't wait till his death because the only the only thing is bad as that we're still looked at as hostile from killing the way we we've got to find out a way to where we positively change our mindsets which has always been embedded in a sense we will let out of the banana boat Areso and we have a mindset to where we can work together so to break that is gonNa take we gotta do like several things at the same time one we got to work and do ourselves and come out of a system has died metrically opposed to IRA keep telling them ah I messed up.

"That looks easy on most people are like N P, what I thought let's actually put it out there on up in a browser. So I set up this code with rockstar dot come is the official Ruxton website, right? Like, but together, the, the documentation the language spec, did some pretty interesting. Thing. So the websites open source as well. It's all in the rockstar Lang Oganization on get hub. And I actually I what I ended up doing was using the get something what you will, to include the main project repo inside the website as a sub fold up because all the specifications or in mock down. And then using Jekyll and give her pages to pause, the mock down into ATM, and publish it. So we don't end up running different versions of the same spec falls stuff, which a little bit of fiddling, but I'm really quite pleased with without elects and stuff. Really, really nice authoring muddle, so. Yeah. And e c we get the I stood up in debt to the half an hour. The party unofficially launched rockstar, one point oh, and the certified rockstar develop a program. Now, this is this is real man come up come up and find me at a conference and show me on your phone that you've written rockstar, and I'll give you a sticker. And I, I have certified rockstar developers stickers. Which, you know that I carry around a bag of these things now whenever we go to events and talk about rockstar and people come up. And you know what I'm that the two things that I wanna get out of this. You know, one of them is, I just want people on the Lincoln endorsing one another as rockstar, developers, absolutely recruiters, stop because it is stupid. And it doesn't get anybody anything is undefined in it's ridiculous. I, I just I want every recruiter to know that if they use the word rockstar that just gonna get inundated by people like us, go numb certified rockstar develop. I'll get my stick sticking getting a job. That's got to be part of the commitment. Right. Is that you bombard your critters with rockstar certification? And why not you know not. I know that we can move onto ninja and wizard in all this other kind of stuff seeing the list of terms, we need to turn making the development languages just to, to puncture this whole process before we go. Can you recite a rockstar app for us? So let me hang on so, so the, the last thing I want to get out of this is I'm interested in, whether it is possible to create an album of songs that are so convincingly lyrical, somebody who doesn't know the joke doesn't realize anything's going. And it's kind of like getting those magazines. You know, that had source code in them back in the eighties that you'd actually sit and type them in, I wonder if somebody's gonna listen to that, and just type in the rockstar and see what actually compiles. Let me just bring up because one of the frustrations that I had with one point does that to make fizz buzz, you have to use the wood, fizz and buzz as literal things, which I you know, I kinda gives the game away a little bit because off Wei. Yeah. This thing at midnight, taking fire and desire, you shout phys. And everyone's like, well, why did he shout fizz? Right. Do with rock and roll. So I started thinking if I could add a raise to the language in such a way that you could instead of having to type phys as a string literal, you could inject the unit code values of the letters into an array one by one on the coast that into being list. And, you know, the classic arrived, the minimal feature set you need to work with a rise in a list, based languages pushing up and we don't like the pop rocks. This is instead of. Pau become rock and roll. So this is this is how you initialized to string variables with Fiz and buzz. So we've got a does a function heckled..

"This year, the holidays basically learning how to write pases using a thin cold, pausing expression, grandma, which is a very powerful packing that basically allows you to say, well, if you see one of these symbols than emit this output and the way that I approached this, so that the one that I built fussed on Weck on dot net, one at the moment, because some folks in Russia will meet again, tell them how did it. But the Fussell built was in Java script, I called at Saturday on a because Jay is Java scrip-. It'll Joe Saturday on a. Live rock and roll. He's an incredible guitar player. He's phenomenal.

And I be like this song is about getting in a big old nineteen fifties thunder, bud with the top down driving off into the desert. And then, of course, the psalms are instrumental because I eat doesn't sing, right? I Neil like so this gets on melody is that driving thunder bud through the desert. All right. I can I can get with this. And those such as the Java script interpreter, but it's not a trance piler. Right. It's an interpreter or is say, what it is is. It's too poss- interpreter. It is a Pozo, which takes your rockstar program and emits it as an abstract syntax tree, which is a Jason document. Okay. So a lot of things in rockstar. There are lots of different ways to do the same. Thing because that allows you to be more expressive, if you're trying to write about the lyrics, man. Yeah. It's right. It's about how, how can we get this eighties? Bad song to compile exactly that, that, that is an nutshell. And so the, the abstract syntax the positive basically takes it rocks on program..

"And we're back Dylan Beatty's here with us. I'm Carl Franklin. That's Richard Campbell. And we're talking about his language at that started as a joke, and you can actually write code with it now. It's called rockstar. It's on get hub and you're talking about the how do you explain a language to a rock musician through, you know, through that thing? When people don't even know. What programming is? Yeah. It's the so the interest. How do you explain an ISA Tareq language of Paraguay to someone who doesn't know what a real real one is? Yeah. And you know, this is why we resort to the power of metaphor, and we try inside will you got this thing? And so here we go this thing. And it's the same idea just in a different different brain. And then the thing that kinda gave it a newly sieve life was it sort of went quiet, and we started working on, you know, some ideas for a an implementation all that and things, but on New Year's day January first this year we made a rockstar made the front page of read it with, like twenty five thousand up votes, and that was just it just kicked the whole thing over again. Like him whole new wave of people who didn't see the first time around this is the coolest thing Atta. And of course, this kicks off another wave of people on get hung on trying to write some rockstar, and I don't want what should happen here. Right. I'm I thought Anna how hard would it be to actually? Turn listen to something with a full meal reference implementation, and a test suite so one week inside this is how it works tryout you'll code hair, if you code. What's good in if it doesn't work, then that may be a problem? But also, you know, at least these people working on different implementations going, what's happening with the specification what's going to be in the next release on, like, I don't know. I I've now the project manager of Joe, can I hadn't realize that this was a position that you could achieve in life. But then we go. And so, you know, January the Sierra I thought, actually, I want to know how to do this stuff 'cause I built, compilers back in university, little toy examples and things Bill anything real. So I spent the Christmas holidays.

"Right. And so, I started thinking we'll you got these, these names real. People's names, Billie Jean black Betsy Dr feelgood all names from classic rock and roll songs. Right. I what if the variables of people, you know, like, Tony gener in, in living on a prayer and stat Thomas son. I came up with this idea of two kinds of variable proper variables will nines, people's names. And then Komen variables is anything that starts with the my or your or a second. I have a variable is like, you know, a Kissel, the night to something. And it's amazing how suddenly you know that plus a little bit of syntax us thought writing statements that look like English language statements as well as being valid programming. Statements said lyrics is what they look like. Yeah. I'm wolf desire. Yeah. And so, you know, you stopped playing around with this, and you think we've got to leave because I didn't want any punctuation in this. I didn't want brackets. I didn't want braces. I didn't want plus signs minus signs. 'cause people don't sing those you do not get these kind of syntax in lyrics or lyrics. Right. I'm on so I started thinking, well, what do they stand for and coming up with English equivalent so you know, if if my Hof was high as the ocean is, is a new American. So. If you'll love his deep river and those kinds of thing. And then once you start thinking about that. I saw thinking about, you know, arithmetic operates so you will eight-plus be. And so the way I did it was for each of these upright. So there was a key what, so the would? Plus, so you can say, you know, the price plus the tax fight butts on. That's valid, but it's not very welcome role so us with instead so you can say like you know my dreams with your love, and that's a, that's an addition expression. And of course, like wow. Wow. With you'll love but my dreams without regretting something. So you go with without. You've got a over while Tommy is over the moon. Yeah. You know, all an ova and buying on all these kinds of keywords, and it, so the started coming together, and I'm just throwing I you know, I got the spec actually roads at sitting in a bar with a been on as I this is going to have another beer and see where it goes. So the spent gets a little more creative as it goes on, and I kind of kicked this around to the point where I thought it was possible to write fizz buzz in it. And, you know, criminal ideas from. So I used to Pell development and Paul is a win language for syntax has got a lot of interesting ideas. And one of the things I need out of Paul in Paul dolla underscore is variable that means whatever you would just looking at it's kind of medicine tactic, you know, it's exactly like in English, he say it all this, you know. And, and so I thought, all right. Well, we'll have an he and she will release kinds of things in him. And, and those have the same sin tactic behavior is the dollar on the school, doesn't Paul. It's whatever I. Is actually whatever I modified lost. Right. Right. So you can you can increments variable in our put something into the wall, building up, building up, building, up, is how you do repeated increments and end someone. Getting ahead of ourselves. When someone suggested build it up. I'm like, all right. I kind of like. Building up up. Knock it down down down, take it to the top. That's an increment detriment and then a loop on, you know, I'd continue on a loop statement. Right. It's the so. Labeled coach. So, you know, so I go the spec together, and I got to the point way you could do fizz buzz with it, and I wrote this little fist bus thing I stuck it on getting hub and I, you know, I thought this is maybe going to be funny for a day, you know, like most things that happen on the internet. It'll bunch of people will, maybe re tweeted, it'll maybe you know read until hacking us and then that's it finished..

"E A, T, E dot net. And on Twitter at Dylan Beatty. Welcome, welcome back. Hey, how you doing doing? Good. Rockstar. Speaking of good tooling, or is it? How do you begin? I remember the story that you told began with recruiters and recruiter ads that were always advertising that they had rockstar developers or wanted rockstar as that. Yeah, that's probably a good place to start, actually, is this whole. So anyone who's worked in IT. And this is very much a kind of English language thing, but throughout the English speaking world, that just kind of become this trope about this idea of rockstar develops not his. I can kind of relate. There is there is some code that I wrote in three days in two thousand and two that ran in production for fifteen years with no bugs in the maintenance. And, you know, you think I'm sure most developers have something, you know, something, they've done in the course of that Korea where it just, you know, everything was perfect. It was kind of perfect storm of productivity and tooling and requirements. And, you know, I, I understand where this idea of the Faouzi times develop of kind of the person who's, well, no, the idea of an insane difference in the order of magnitude of productivity. Right. Right. Tweet couldn't develop on a good day. And everyone else all the time. Yeah. You know, I don't really agree with us. This whole thing about there are people who are always amazing. There are people who always mediocre, you know, everybody we vary coding, is this creative process and the days when you just do not get in the on and you sit in reply to Email tells time ago home, and then you come back the next day off course. I see the problem in bang, you know, there art is, but yet, you know, this, this idea of the rockstar, developer and this that old d remember years ago. The what was it more Einstein on Elvis thing that? Yeah, the three different. I mean we're Sonos. Yeah. It, it was always vaguely repellent at the time. But today, especially like, yeah, we really really can't talk about people that way. That's not right. Mort was sort of pejorative for the nine to five developer who checked out, you know, promptly at five PM went home and didn't about code for the rest of the night, and an Elvis was the rockstar developer that was always the hero at date, you know at the eleventh. Hour, you know, checking in the code and making it all work. And what was the other one Einstein's Feinstein? Yeah. Yeah. The brainiacs. Yeah. You know. So you kind of have this, this whole thing, and this going into recruitment, you know, I'm sure you see if you go on the link ten right now all IT tech jobs, as you just type in rockstar, and you'll find these companies needed PHP rockstar full major agency website thing. Right. And the whole thing is, is complete crap in it. I have always found the use of this time to be wanted. Communicates, sort of massive misunderstanding in this perpetuation of the idea that, you know, if you just you keep looking hot enough, there is some, you know, Ruxton developer out there in quotes, who will just come in and solve your problem. Right. Sure. And, you know, I think it, it perpetuates a lot of you know, negative management practices. Male bovine fecal matter. Something along those lines. Yes. And you know, there's this thing lost you pull STA values the guy who created octopus deploy righteous, the climate system who else following on Twitter and he just he put this tweets out. This isn't like July lost yo where he just said, somebody should make a programming language called rockstar to confuse developers. And I just, you know, I sort of saw this an I chuckled a bit. And it sort of stuck with me, and I thought, you know, some somebody's got to pick this up and do something with it. And nobody did because this is the internet. I get that thing. I find this particular read it you'll see a post and you think sunny and you click in someone's already Fulton it, right? This is the internet. It's, it's however many three full billion people.

"Carl Franklin. And this is Richard Campbell and Dylan beat is here. He's going to talk about his new language rockstar, which I'm not even going to tell you what it's all about right now because that would be crazy. We have a little thing to do, I, but I, I want to hear what's up with you, man. What do you I did my one of my favorite days of the year just a few weeks ago where I did the middle school stem day? How awesome so. But three hundred kids in three groups gre- ages twelve to fourteen and we get them to vote on different subject areas which if you look at the list is all very much key Coutts. Yeah. And, and then I'm able to do for each group four topics three that the students picked and wanted their teacher picked. Wow. So about fifteen minutes. Each on each one, the only topics elected by all three groups artificial intelligence, but they're also very interested in augmented reality. They were very interested in genetic engineering. Wow. Interested in working in space. Excellent. So it was a nice diversity topics. We also had infectious diseases got selected mostly by the teachers, so we got to dig into that as well and they're getting better at using the whole automation part of this. So they had a voting system that we looked at the topics, and then they were surveyed afterwards. So I got back some comments and things, I think my personal favourite comment was the thirteen year old who said, are really appreciated that Mr. Campbell didn't dumb it down. Too much for us. That's great. Anyway. You know, this, it's one of those days where especially when you read all the feedback you get a little misty and you just reminded. Hey, you know, we could do some good things once in a while. I feel like I may have got them at least thinking about things. Yeah. You know, when when my last shake the bag was in, in middle school. I did that. And had a absolute ball is a lot of fun. And you know, and, and I experienced speaker like we are, this is actually a very tough gig difference between being at a conference where people paid several thousand dollars to listen to you. Right versus a pack a tweens. There's like it's this or or we skip A-block. And if you can actually light them up like you've done something, it's like swinging awaited bat. I had the experience of showing them things that I thought, you know, everybody had seen that they had never seen Google earth, right? And they went crazy. All they wanted to do is see their houses, and satellite view. Like that moment where you lose control the room, because they're all talking to each other. Right. Right. Like you've got them so excited, they just forget and they're round up get let that happen. Yeah. You got to let that happen. You can't disturb it. It's, it's really powerful. So, my like literally, one of my favorite days of the year to do that. Very, very cool. Awesome good on you. Well, let's roll the music for better. No framework. Excellent. All right. Dude, you've been on a roll with some very cool. You know, there's not actually dot net framework stuff. But cool stuff. What do you got today? Well, you're gonna love this one Savell. Have you heard of Celt? Yes. It's a great description of what I'm not. It's not allowed that's not right. It's what programming used to be. No. It's Savell dot Dev. It's a website and it's a framework of sorts. But it's more like a transporter. It's more like a new language that generates Java script in CSL's. It's, it's HTML, but it sort of like the name implies takes a lot of Croft out, and it's interesting, you know, there's, there's a lot of this stuff out there. But this is a little bit different. So I would just say they have a rebel and you know you need. No j s but you can just go out to their ripple and start coding away. It's pretty good. Of course, you're going to want to download some stuff soon enough. But you know as components, and it has composed ability..
