Because I think it deserves a little bit more love and I feel really sorry for all we need is a 12 year old bar and he's like, it's like pretty much all of us at some time or another, you know, he doesn't really want to get he wants to be cured but can't be cool and the bullies are putting him down all the time. He's not the best looking lad in the world and all he wants to do is find a friend find somebody who can connect with him. I think all of us can relate to that. I think it's and that to me is a story to it that you just want to find love you just want to find somebody you can have those moments with. And I think let the right one in and let me in. That's that story. I mean, that's what you say every time you come round at three in the morning when I've not asked you to. Let me in, let me in. I told you, Dennis, we're close, we're Friends, but we're not that friendly. Listen, you say, go away, gallon of lube first. What can I say? Let me in. There we go. There we go. Dennis, you too far in, you worry me as a hat. Anyway, so the appendages covered in lube and bodily backwards and forwards. It looks like a Jackson Pollock if you put a nightlight on them. Anyway, but it is an absolute. I love them both. So I was going to do the original, let the right one in. But if everybody's seen that, iPhone knows about it. I have. You haven't. Doctor.

I don't want to do this. I think I bought both. I think that the right one in was out a bit earlier, but it only came out because it's of a foreign language movie. Later, but it's set in the 80s. Again, and there's this big kind of renaissance of the 80s at the moment, isn't it with Stranger Things and black phone, for instance, is kind of set in 70s, 80s. So there's a big renaissance around that time. But I love it. I love the kind of intricacy of the love and which is asking back to Bram Stoker, nosferatu, those kinds of stuff. You know, at the core of some of these best vampire movies, it is a love story. It is somebody wanting to connect to another, but unfortunately the disease are addicted to. This story of fiction and story of love. And she's never going to grow old, but he is beautiful. Yeah. And that comes up a lot in these films, the immortality, being young forever, never dying. I know, I know, I'm there for you, Dennis. You found a friend in me and Paul, it's all right. You don't need to cry anymore. Why do you treat me so poorly?

And next hour, we're going to be playing next hour with the next segment. After next we're going to be playing a bro. So, stick around for that. Now, Bram Stoker was an Irish author and he wrote Dracula, a gothic horror novel in 1897 and Betty Friedan, as I mentioned, she wrote the book in 1963 called the feminist mystique, often credited with sparking the second wave of American feminism in the 20th century. She also cofounded and was elected the first president of the national organization for women. By the way, she was married, had children, and she publicly stated that her husband beat her. Her husband denied it and then later on, she said she wishes she'd never made the allegation. She didn't withdraw the allegation, but she said she wish she never made the allegation public. Regarding savage garden, they were an Australian pop duo had a really, really big hit, truly madly deeply. Also had a song called I want you. One to the moon and back, the animal song and I knew I loved you. They broke up. I believe it was in 2001 or something like that. And when one of them was asked whether or not he would ever get back, he said no, never. I once said I do it if I cured cancer. That's how I still feel. So I guess they kind of fell out.

"That's a far cry different than when we arrive at modern day vampirism where vampires eat people, but then also fall in love with people genuinely. And with the full conviction of an affection or romantic entanglement. And I have a hard time with that. This is a being that's potentially immortal and feeds on this population of lifeforms. And at the same time, can also fall in love with them for the moment that they're alive, knowing that they'll die soon. Again, so I just feel like the modern incarnation of vampirism when it looks like that is missing the point of why Victorian era storytelling was was lusty in titillating. And they're trying to do something with in that same vein. If you want a really good if you like 30 days of night and you're in for a long book. I can't remember who wrote it. It's the historian. Is kind of a tale and adventure tale of some people trying to track down a Dracula figure. And it leans heavy into Bram Stoker's Dracula, but it's a more modern day adventure story. And there were some genuinely unsettling moments in that book. It is a long, quiet read, and the payoffs for some of these settings. Like, you know, you make those jokes like you're kind of reading through your fingertips. I'm holding this book and going, oh, oh no. Oh no. And it's beautiful, but it took like 400 pages to get to that moment. The book just kind of builds and builds and builds into those types of moments. And I love vampires that are corrupters. I love vampires that are metaphors for other types of influence and manipulation. And I love vampires that really do lean into almost cosmic horror, they unsettling aspects of a lovecraftian kind of story. And if you like that kind of stuff and your patient and you let you like letting horror kind of build on you, I really liked the historian. Elizabeth custov. Simon says hypno says, Elizabeth, and that sounds correct to me. So I'm gonna go with that. I really like that book. Oh.

It was believed that he was imprisoned in kessel brand but historians now conclude that vlad the third was actually imprisoned in a fortress in budapest it said by historians that kessel brand was chosen to be the colloquial location of lead thirds imprisonment as it is more haunting and dramatic looking structure than other castles of the region. Historians and scholars alike have concluded that flat third likely never set foot in the castle however as there is a lack of written historical accounts except for documents obviously from region. At the time the idea cannot be completely discredited. Yeah i mean. I've heard everything from. He was imprisoned there for like a couple of days to he just probably was by the area a few times not even necessary inside. We know for sure that he was in brand like the town. The town okay. Yeah but we don't know he went.

"Not quite so recently. It was around 18 77. I think it was patented in 18 78 called the photograph and the photograph was huge. It was a big breakthrough. It was a sound recording and playback device that was immensely popular. Would later evolve into the record player, though the original photograph both recorded and played back cylinder is not discs. You know if I remember correctly, these pop up in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. Really? Yes, Some of the you know it's all little bits tidbits from various people's journals and diaries. And in some cases, they're cylinder recording. Dr Seward, does he do dictation on photograph cylinders? You see, I don't remember exactly which characters I know. It's not Dracula. This Soldier according to track and they're no chapters. From Dracula's perspective. They were, unfortunately But yes. Oh, so Edison and his people they they have the photograph, And that was this very popular revolutionary technology could record and playback sound. And so in February of 18 88 my bridge showed up with an idea. He said. Hey, let's collaborate. Ah, pair your photograph with my Zor praxis scope and we'll have sound accompanying moving pictures. Which is perfect like that's exactly the direction things we're going to go in Edison past you just like not interested, but then pretty much immediately. Edison moved on the idea of creating an improved motion picture capture and playback device. Quote to do for the eye. What the photograph does for the ear, and this would be the Connecticut scope that we mentioned a moment ago. So I don't think you can say that Edison was stealing my bridges idea because what they would eventually come up with was so much better and more practical than this. Oh, Praxis, Praxis go. But it does seem right that he thought, you know, Instead of partnering with this guy, I could just make a much better version of his thing. Whether that's crooked or not, I don't know. I'll leave that up to you to judge Keep.
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
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
