Who Was Vlad the Impaler
"A time when I didn't know that Vlad. The Impaler was thought to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's genre-defining vampire Dracula hop in your home school bus police box or phone booth with aerial antenna and let's go back to 15th century will lakia a region of modern-day Romania. That was then the southern Edge over to the province of Transylvania. Our flad was flat the third glad the second his father was given the nickname dracul by his fellow Crusade nights in the order of the Dragon. They were tasked with defeating the Ottoman Empire will lakia was sandwiched between the Ottomans and Christian Europe and so became the sight of constant bloody conflict without looking it up. I'm going to guess that the order of the Dragon failed since the Ottoman Empire was still standing in nineteen twenty-three. Dracul translated to dragon in Old Romanian. But the modern meeting is more like Devil add an a to the end to denote son of and you've got flat Dracula at age eleven flat and his seven-year-old brother Raju went with their father on a diplomatic Mission into the Ottoman Empire. How'd it go? Not too good. The three were taken hostage their captors told Vlad the second that he could be released if his two sons remained behind home since it was really their only option. He agreed the boys would be held prisoner for five years one account holds that they were tutored in The Art of War science and philosophy. Other accounts say that they were subjected to torture and brutal abuse by the time Vlad the second return to Allah Kiya. He was overthrown in a coup and he and his eldest son murdered shortly. Thereafter Vlad. The third was released with a taste for violence and a vendetta against the Ottomans to regain his family's power and make a name for himself. He threw a banquet for hundreds of members of rival families on the menu was wine meet sweetbreads and gruesome vicious murder off. The guests were stabbed not quite to death then impaled on large spikes. This would become vlad's signature move leading to his moniker Vlad the Impaler, but it wasn't the only arrow in his quiver. Facing an army three times the size of his he ordered his men to infiltrate their territory poison the wells and burn the crops. He also hired disease dead-end to go in and infect the enemy defeated combatants were often treated to disemboweling flaying Alive boiling and of course impalement. Basically, you turn your enemy into a kabob and let them die slowly and just as importantly conspicuously vlad's reputation spread leading to a mixing of Legend in fact like that. He wants took dinner in a veritable Forest of spikes. We do know that in June of 1462. He ordered 20,000 defeated Ottomans to be impaled. It's a scale that's hard to even imagine when the Ott's in Sultan mehmed II Came Upon the Carnage he and his men turned on their heels and fled back to Constantinople. You would think flawed was on the road to Victory but shortly thereafter. He was forced into Exile and imprisoned in Hungary. He took a stab no pun intended on regaining will lakia fifteen years later, but he and his troops were ambushed and killed according to a contemporary
"bram stoker" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"This fascination with the possibility that stoker could have had syphilis is really part of a much bigger speculation that has gone on for a century about the author sexuality. and He seems in so many ways to be a tangle of repression and confusion regarding sexuality and desire in his writing with so much erotic content that it sometimes seems. He doesn't even realize he is including there are multitudes of papers analyzing the sexuality of Dracula and the disdain for the Victorian new woman that is present in a lot of stoker's work, his obsession with figures like Whitman and Irving and his friendship with Oscar Wilde who he saw go through the trial that. You know kind of ruined Oscar Wilde's life have naturally led to speculation about an attraction to men that he may never have truly recognized. But this like his childhood infirmity and his cause of death can never be conclusively known. What we do know though is that Dracula has never been out of print. It has been adapted into films and musicals and ballet and is inspired innumerable other vampire stories and it also just continues to do so. O'Brien STOKER'S DRACULA. We can talk more about it in the behind the scenes. Yes, he so. Fascinating and complex, and I really did not know all of that Walt Whitman stuff to the degree played. Well, I took a second while we were kind of in our in a in a sponsor break movements. To, see at I. Don't think we mentioned any connection to Bram Stoker in the Walt Whitman episode. Yeah. I don't think so I Yeah I want to Rewatch, all of the Dracula now. And think about him in this way. I. Don't have regular listener mail. I have an illustrative tale. I'm eager for this Well, it's just one of those things where It's kind of a peek behind how this works and you mentioning that you looked up in the Walt Whitman episode whether we mentioned Bram Stoker kind of plays into it This is a I got a facebook message from our listener and our friend Maria who I met through the podcast and have you know exchanged notes with back and forth we met her also at one of our live shows and she mentioned that she was doing a paper on pandemics and she had found. In older episode stuff, you missed in history class that talked about the black plague and she thought there had been more recent one with the two of us but couldn't find it in a gave me a moment where I was like I have to look this up because I don't remember and it is one of those things that I feel like comes up often and we've talked about it a little before. But I I always liked to illustrate it literally just the same as we relate, did we do a brand stoker episode there are moments where. The black death and things like plague in particular and Bram stoker is another good example and what women because he comes up in many things where it's really hard to remember what we have and have not done as a full episode particularly when that topic comes up in many other episodes is sort of a secondary piece of the story. So it, it always cracks me up a little bit because people will often be like you did an episode on this and we're like, no, we didn't, and sometimes we will realize that what has happened is that they have stitched together what they thought was a longer episode in their head. Sometimes, it is people confusing our show for other shows. Yeah and I'm not making fun of anybody because I have absolutely done this before where I've been like I remember hearing this on an episode of ninety nine percent invisible and it was like actually on criminal or something like it was. Their shows are very dissimilar. I. Don't know how I don't think that's a real example from my actual life, but we have. People email us and say, Hey, I just I'm trying to find episode you all did and I can't find it anywhere and I'm like. That was not us I'm really sorry. Yeah. It's just a an interesting illustrative example of how sometimes we don't even know for sure. We literally have to go back to an index that Tracy put together a while back where we were changing. Over the way our website worked yeah, and she just gathered all of our Meta data into a big document. Especially when you go back to shows that we're before you and I hosted idea, I have a lot of gaps in my knowledge of that even though I we try to keep track of it and look at it periodically but it is an interesting thing and I feel like it's a good illustrative example of what has often come up in the show. I feel like it's come a lot lately of cases like Bram Stoker where He missed remembers things about his past. And they're oftentimes it came up to in the Elaine Levinsky episode. People will report even their own biographies incorrectly, and sometimes in some cases, the initial response is to presume. A sort of nefarious level that they're lying or covering something up, but it's also. Worth, noting that people have faulty memories. As, often, also what ACLU's historical records said even when you're talking to someone. Fairly. Recently, after an event has taken place, they will related events incorrectly just just a little point of reference for everyone as we all talk about history Moma time to remember personal personal accounts are great. and sometimes like the the most primary Sir she can get but also to remember that they are not remembering necessary right? Right. And one day someone will. Be like holly and Tracy remembered stuff incorrectly and we'll be like that is correct. Yeah. Definitely. Remembered it incorrectly all the time. Anyway, that was my little trip I wonder if people realize how tricky it is to keep drinking actually done episode.

Aaahh!!! Classic Monsters
"We thought we would talk. Hello Classic movie monsters or I guess. A derivative thereof You know all the films like Frankenstein Dracula creature the Black Lagoon and salon boy. Oh boy so yeah so we are. Actually we each picked one classic creature. We're going to be sharing history in details about that creature in the story about the story about them so should we. Should we drinks. Yeah okay so I'm going to actually hand the mic over to Tracy and you because I she has forty drinks that she's going to be sure they're all so I'm focusing on vampires and at total wine there was actually quite a bit to choose from uh-huh depending on how elaborate you WanNa get with the topic. There was even like walking dead wine assume that seemed like sheeting. That seemed like that would be better for his. Obviously yeah it's because it's actually from the TV exactly. So I can't have rick on the cover and be thinking of Bram Stoker works for me with that said that I brought three drinks because being hungover and being two o'clock in me not having lunch it just seems weird like crack. Open a bottle of wine right now but I do have Francis Coppola diamond red plans talk a little bit about Coppola going on. Because you can't really talk about Dracula directly without talking about Coppola and then I also because I don't like I said if I'm going to open that I also brought four. They use my teeth to pull the bag out. I have a lovely temper neo. Oh I love to drag on. And we'll talk a little bit about what dragons dragons relates reverse dragged him the vampire at least in literature but like I said that's a bit heavy so honestly what I think I'm going to start with. Breath is a nice blood. Orange Margarita and S- To serve it in as they said I just live seven houses down I brought on my own Hamilton Sippy Cup when I say Hola pouring that that's awesome chewing that All amazing choices see. That doesn't take a random rationalization cody did you notice that mixture. You have doesn't actually have to kill it in it. Oh I I forgot I also brought my own patrol. Never leave home without it. So the monster I chose today is Where wolves so what? I'm drinking today. Is a Lithuanian heritage. Beer called where wolf it's literally called Werewolf and it has a quite a high alcohol content. So that's so funny because just right before for the show Tracy and I were talking about how we like picking drinks. That aren't just the name. They require narrative. Chris here's where we'll there's nothing with that sound so bitchy all right so Chris is still looking to see what kind of beer is is it. Strong connect have a taste. Today makes one of us. Oh that is delicious is really good. That's dangerous Oh my God. I'm just GonNa Covet this break a command. It's a Belgian dark El okay. I'M GONNA try that too. Yeah so for my drink. I'm actually Old England. I'm actually doing Frankenstein. And so and that was that was what I was GONNA do. I was I went into English. Oh I hear terrible and like you know what. I just can't drink this after my night. I'm going to get something good. Mary Shelley found something actually liked Mary. Shelley well well I whenever you look at all these old stories. I what I think of it is. They all kind of intertwined sometimes in ways and they're just kind of these wild crazy stories stories. So I've found a blackberry merlot called twisted Vine Ohio. Yeah good expected to get a couple. I rolls maybe like really all right so with that I will get into history I didn't want to do anything like Hollywood movie. Poor history because that would have been very long and excessive in instead I thought I would give a weird overview on the history of monsters the word monster itself derives from the Latin word monstrum meaning to demonstrate or monarch meaning to warn There's also the Latin word monstrum which Just means abnormal or supernatural but can also mean wonder or miracle generally speaking monsters are physical whether real or imagined representation of those things society as Dean leaned unknown or unnatural and most mostly those things that we fear and cannot explain physically. Speaking a monster may have some unusual characteristics. In fact one time things such as two-headed cavs or babies born with abnormalities were considered monsters so basically anything that was outside of what society claimed as quote. Normal aw was seen as monstrous of course as we know in addition to the physical characteristics. Munster's we'll do some terrible things or act out on the way beyond the standing of society being set that any one of us in this room could be considered a monster me with my blue hair and you both being super tall me with my gay so monsters there's all of you There are a ton of tons of monsters that go back in history. There were monsters that were found in cave paintings represented by animal human hybrids which unlikely cliches in real life hence monsters or at least at the conclusion that historians drew in Greek and Roman mythology monsters were perceived as a form of displeasure from the gods examples being cyclops Gorgon. Medusa Centaurs Sirens and so on. It seems that in religion like Judaism Christianity and Islam. They avoided talking about monsters aside from stories related to Satan and the power of evil in Hinduism monsters. A lot more prevalent. you see gods depicted with extra limbs or as an animal human hybrid and in native American culture. You have creatures such as the Wendy Go. Skin walkers and even sasquatch after the renaissance period with science becoming a new a fairly new thing. It really tried to attempt to explain what exactly monsters were to no avail in the gothic period we were graced. With two of the most infamous monsters Frankenstein and Dracula as well as some of the creepiest fairy tales by the brothers Grimm in psychology. Carl Jung tried to explain monsters as any central part of development might in that they were seen as the quote otherness within ourselves. I kind of discussed with this with you. Cody Day in that how I was talking how we need to balance the light with dark so I think that's the same thing it's arguing and our gang. We all have a fascination with monsters. This podcast is an example. Cody are armchair. Chair crypto zoologists. That even if these creatures don't exist it's that innate curiosity of the possibility of their existence as society changes the faces of monsters changing. We'll continue you to do so when before we used to be freed of things like trolls and elves. Today's where we fear things such as candyman or to say that once monsters collection of our society and then all the terrible things in it as well as an escape from those terrible things monsters are ever evolving and as long as we have fears and terrible things going on in our world they will. Oh not go away in my opinion. That's escapism at its best interest inc.. I have like a believer skeptic question but I guess I wanNA save it maybe. For debunk okay. But I'm afraid that I'm going to. I'm going to forget it. I'm going to ask now for both of Y'all are there any monsters or creatures that either of you actually believe in. Yes yes. That's probably what got me. Hooked on your podcast in the first place you were immediately talking about things that I have seen with my own eyes so I can only to Chris as a believer in many of the things. He's seen. Yeah I'm sitting there at work. Listen to going. Oh my God I saw that too says yes shadow people. I can't talk about that right now. Is Definitely I've had encounters encounters with shadow people. But as far as what we're talking about today. The closest is a boyfriend who thought he was a vampire. Oh Shit are you talking about that in your story. No I wasn't going to because it's complicated and messy advocates network. Deep Ball Game L.. Dated someone who thought he was a vampire sidelining. I think he was just really sexually confused. Needed to explore some things and that arena. He had seen the horror many

"In our household with no problems after coming to the US. I encouraged. I've encountered this new to me system of age restriction in parental control. To me at the time. It didn't seem to make much sense. And I saw it as a dumb thing. However time went by. And I am a father now. Although my child is not yet old enough to watch movies. I've drastically changed my views towards Frente control in movie age ratings. I am definitely not going to show. My son a Tinto brass film each ten, but I also don't want to be so strict that not watching some already did films at a young age can turn him into a fragile scaredy cat. We're Chris stand in the subject, and how should I proceed with my dilemma should? I censor the media for me kid in wet him decide later in life. If he likes that type of entertainment, or should I take my own experience as an example and allow him? To watch whatever interests him within moral boundaries. Of course. Chris what do you think about this like you are an apparent yourself? Right. No heavens. No. He needs to dogs. That's right. Those are my kids, and I feel like after our first entry. We're where we basically advised someone not to go to college. We should probably create like a like disclaimer at the end of this like one of those fast talking disclaimers like slash on does not like. What Chris says is, you know, take it with a grain of salt s-. But okay, Chris. This is just advice isn't sentenced tones you have to make your own decisions. I would say it depends on your child. Really, you only you would know your child and what he? Can handle some children are more sensitive than others? Some can't take certain things. And that's fine. When I was growing up. My parents didn't stop me from our rated movies unless they had sex in them that was that was where they drew the line. They were fine with like super violent horror movies. But if there was sex that was a big note like I really wanted to see Francis. Coppola Bram Stoker's Dracula in theaters because I was a huge Dracula fan, but that movie has a lot of sexual situations in it. So my parents forbade me from seeing it for a few years till VHS and that really bothered me..
"bram stoker" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"And I love how tongue in cheek they are and how I do think that a lot of western genre fans like you were saying, take these sort of miss a way too seriously and get really, but hurt when directors try to play with them. I mean, I'm not defending twilight in any sense of the word, but people were so outraged that like the vampire skin was different in they walk in the sunlight. It's like, why do you care. Blows my mind about the backlash against twilight. The idea of sunlight being anathema to western vampires is largely a cinematic conceit go. If you go back to Bram Stoker Dracula had no problem walking around in sunlight, weakened him a little, but it wouldn't burst into flames. It wasn't until Murnau's for ought to that. They started using the idea of vampires being killed by sunlight. And even that wasn't picked up by the universal films until son of Dracula. So. People are a little too precious about these sorts of things. And that's what I love so much about These Mr vampire movies is throughout the series. Wjm really seemed to delight regardless of who's directing or who's writing. They seem to really delight in seeing how far they can kind of stretch and manipulate these sorts of laurels, not only to make it, you know, scarier, more entertaining, but also in the comedic scenes, like the one where they were, they fry the ghost. Does. I just love that it's so bold and there's like just like the, they'll throw in things for the sake of throwing them in like they'll have comedic moments where like you steal someone's hair and then you can make them do what you're doing. And so there's always like these miss. It's very three's company, right? It's very, like mistaken identity or mistaken actions, or you've got the guy outside, who's you know mimicking taking down his pants, and then the guy inside the room is taking down his pants of front of a pretty girl and it's just like, okay, yeah, we'll just do these things for comedic purposes. And eventually they might come back into nother movie or they might not. It might just be a one time thing. It's like how sticky rice affect vampires, right? I think we get that in the first movie in. We don't really get that again, but sticky rice is hugely important to this first movie part of why sticky rice is so important is because each one of these things. That sort of so easily like knocked off course. And you know, of course, we see that he's trying to buy this massive quantity of sticky rise in his basically being shortchanged by the rice distributor. Leading to, you know, more hilarity. One of the reoccurring motifs is the idea that that's the film's progress. There's a certain expectation that the audience knows what the weaknesses are and they seem to work until they don't, you know, set up a barrier of rice. Oh, that's going to work until he just steps right over it. Or, you know, pop a scroll on the vampire said, it seems to work until it doesn't. It's as the only the rules are only there for the setup provided set up for the comedy. And I do like how the films, gods increasingly more elaborate in their ways of dispatching, the chief Jiang. She of them to the point that they were literally shoving all kinds of poisons and rice in few snakes down the gullet of one of them in a l. it's totally totally convincing rubber masks they were using while they were doing that by the way. Amazing. And that's one of the things that I love. So much about this series is like I grew up watching a lot of western vampire movies. I love them and like I said, I love the hammer series. But in general, the hammer series in the universal movies, they kind of do the same thing. It sort of like they figured out, okay, this formula works. We're not gonna deviate too much from this formula. And Mr. vampire has the opposite approach where it's like by the time you get to crazy safari. They're launching a vampire out of an airplane with a parachute. The one person who should be able to fall out of an airplane safely, but yet they put a parachute on them, you have to respect the ancestor will remains right. That's what's so much of this series is this idea of these ancestors and the uneasy spirits..

"It's important to point out that for a very long time death was a deeply supernatural thing for a lot of people it was strongly believed that the sole and the body were to separate things loosely tied together all of it was very mysterious of course but mystery as we know as a way of breeding folklore this ancient belief finally found expression in a philosophy known as vital ism the basic idea was simple our source of life the thing that animates us and makes us who we are is something other than our physical form life comes from the seoul one contributor to the idea of vital ism was a seventeen thcentury german physician named george stall it was his opinion than death was like an invisible pair of scissors cutting the connection between the body and soul but sometimes he said that process can go wrong trapping the sole inside a person's dead heart where it feeds off the souls of the living the solution he proposed was known as therapeutic exhumation if a town suffered from a plague illness with no logical cause stall recommended exhuming the earliest victims cutting out the hearts and burning them to release the soul and if that sounds familiar to you there is a good reason for that because some historians think that when the british forces higher german mercenaries during the american revolution those hired soldiers brought german physicians with them positions who held the stalls idea some of them apparently stuck around after the war and travelled around new england teaching people about therapeutic exhumation which gave us the great new england vampire panic and eventually bram stoker's dracula but let's go back to signs of death because every one really wanted to be sure their loved ones had a chance to recover for centuries isi see it was common for people to fall into a deep death like sleep and not wake up for weeks or even months it was heart wrenching and confusing and people wanted better proof.
