A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 11/10/23
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Camelot, Camelot, I know it sounds a bit bizarre. Sounds a bit bizarre. Let's guess the birthday, Mr. Mike. Bizarre. Bizarre is the word of the year. Richard Burton, born this date 1925. You know how old he was when he died? He was a young guy, right? 58. Now proving that alcohol is not a preservative. Actually, that wasn't really what got him. He had a lot of health things. I'm not sure the alcohol helped. No, it probably did not. And you know what I watched the other day? You ever do cable laps, dish laps, and you just land on something and you go, oh, this will be worth five minutes, and an hour and a half later, you're still there? The that spectacle was Cleopatra. I mean, the very beginning sort of of their relationship, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. I don't know if the movie is that good in terms of, it looks kind of primitive in the early 60s special effects, but it was amazing for its day. And it was just incredible to watch their interplay. And so happy birthday there for Richard Burton, born this date 25. Keeping it in the show business realm and musicals, I saw last night online, a group of Broadway performers got together in tribute to the children who've been kidnapped and are held hostage in Gaza. And they performed Bring Him Home from the musical Les Miserables. And it's a beautiful ballad. And they changed the lyric to bring them home. Oh my gosh, Mike. And Mark, it's beautiful. I mean, it is absolutely magnificent. And you know, and it's, I brought a tear to my eye. I'm going to play it on the show today. I hope everybody will look it up because it's really a good moment. And here's the moment that I love. And now you're going to get, you're going to lose your mind because one of the most toxic, vicious, lefty entertainers on the planet is one of the performers. That would be Debra Messing from Will and Grace. Oh sure, the red haired lady. Yep. And boy, she just despises Trump and conservatives and everything else. This is a time of strange bedfellows and odd allegiances where a lot of hard, hard lefties realized that the antisemitism of note today is on their side. Let me let you finish though. But it's one of those triangulation moments. No, but that's my point. You made my point for me beautifully, better than I ever could. That's what I like about moments of unity, even in a time of darkness. And I mean, boy, we are in such a dark time right now. And what's so difficult is how people are delusional and not being able to see good versus evil and right versus wrong. And so you're right when there's a moment like this where people can get, and the person who retweeted the musical tribute that I saw an ex last night was Patricia Heaton from Everybody Loves Raymond. She's a conservative, she's not a lefty. And so, and she did a big shout out to these Broadway performers for this beautiful moment. Listen, it was put together by Seth Rudetsky. He's like a sassy Broadway guy who I've listened to for years on satellite radio. And believe me, he's no conservative. They hate Republicans, but you're so right. This isn't about that. And I'm just praying for some clarity, for some wisdom. I saw Hillary Clinton yesterday on The View.
Fresh update on "burton" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak Europe
"Fed will be able to cut rates next year treasuries therefore extended the bullish price action and currently you're looking at the 10 -year Treasury yield up two basis points at 4 .18 % but it's not all about the US we've also had this slightly surprisingly dovish commentary from Isabel Schnabel over at the ECB the market now pricing 150 basis points of cuts from the ECB in 2024 we'll hear from the Bank of England as well later at its financial stability report but traders in the UK fully pricing three rate cuts from the BOE next year so that's helping gilts rally and taking the 10 -year yield near four percent in currencies the Bloomberg dollar spot index pretty steady euro dollar is currently at 107 and cable 126 at the moment meanwhile traders again mulling the rates outlook and therefore you've got gold up two tenths of a percent at 2022 dollars an ounce bitcoin not quite at that 44 000 mark but it has it been there earlier and oil steady as well down a tenth of a percent at $77 a barrel that's your breenberg business flash okay lizzie burton thank you very much indeed with the check on the markets let's do a deeper dive now in and bringing the analysis of elise badoy head of emir equity research at city group elise thanks for joining us on the studio and the line there that lizzie referenced in terms of markets traders now pricing in 150 basis points of cuts from the european central bank it's been quite the remarkable turnaround in terms of expectations on the ecb just in the last few days does the european central bank deliver on that market pricing do you think so i think the key is obviously the macro environment in europe we're getting better data um... but it's still quite... we're not out of the woods really so i would qualify it so for example we've had german pmis they've they looked like they've bottomed but they're still at quite a low level you know so i think it's is this tension between uh... data suggesting a softening but data that's not too aggressively low that actually uh... you know the european market starts to get a bit shaky and i'm talking here about the equity market obviously yeah what do you mention you mentioned germany and it's quite remarkable to some extent or at least counter -intuitive that the dax is at what about eighteen percent year to date it hit a record today despite the concerns about the health of that economy there's a disconnect between the economic realities the fundamentals of germany and and the equity market performance yeah that's correct and i think we need to look back at what drives the german equity market as well as the european market more broadly obviously europe is a proxy for many other economies and not the european economy not just the german economy uh it's what distinguishes the european markets versus perhaps the u .s which is a lot more uh u .s centric um so i think um you this know this um this characteristics means that if you look at the factors that have been driving this rally it's essentially risk abating three risks i would say obviously this expectation that get rate cost rate and we get confirmation of that regularly secondly a de -escalation of geopolitical risks and then news coming day after day that we have potentially more chances of a soft lending and we have a gap in use because we've had bottom -up information at q3 and we're gonna have a huge gap until we have more bottom information in full year yeah i mean brian moinahan says we can have a soft landing in the us at least will there be one a markets in for a nasty shock on that front and I think you know the market starting to price that in very rapidly we're seeing that but you know we're really wondering you know if you look at our recent occasions I mean our economists really expect that we're not out of the woods in the US certainly and yes we could have I'm not sure shock is the right way we look at it but I think it might certainly surprise some investors we were talking to an economist at pig to asset management this morning really with the view that there is a risk of inflation resurgence in 2024 we're looking at inflation what in the eurozone of 2 .4 % about 4 .6 % here in in the UK so the view from picked asset management and their team is that inflation could rebound because of the effects of base effects that last mile around inflation and getting back to target how challenging do you think that will be or do you think were in territory now where we can call it plain sailing so economists are expecting certainly inflation to continue to fade I think the debate is really around wage inflation and we think that's the bit that could be sticky particularly I mean that was true about the US as well however other factors are definitely abating and I think it will it will gradually come off what investors will definitely watch is any exogenous factors we talked about your politics the obviously anything mechanism of transmission is through the oil price and that would definitely be issue an but I think in terms of other factors beyond wage we're relatively confident that inflation will slowly come off I mean at least in the eurozone and that's certainly our view. And how does that feed into your outlook for the consumer because you're quite cautious about the the consumer sector? Yeah correct so I think consumer staples here what drives our perspective is really rates and consumer staples tends to be a sector as a listed sector it's inversely correlated to rates so we actually downgraded the sector back in mid October and that's really the view that we're going into a phase where rates will come off. That's more the driver than per se the actual consumer and perhaps the retail sector and all those other sectors. That's a separate thing.

Oh no, that was Bryan Adams, but we had a great time. Coming up on this podcast, I'm gonna do an NBA Power Poll at the top because there's no games as I'm taping this on Tuesday. So let's, where are we after two weeks? I tried to fly through this. I limited myself to 22 minutes. I think I went two minutes over, but I flew through it, tried to get off as many comments as I possibly could. And then our old friend Malcolm Gladwell is gonna come on and do some sports hour stuff. There's some things that he's noticed about direction sports are going in that he doesn't like, and we're gonna try to fix it. So that's the podcast, first, our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, I'm gonna throw an NBA Power Poll at you. I'm not sure I'm gonna do this every Tuesday, but I definitely wanna do this some Tuesdays. I'm gonna go through all 30 teams as fast as possible. And I'm gonna throw things out that I feel like are important when necessary. Pot shots, important comments, things I've noticed, some fake trades, you've known me for a while. It's gonna be all the typical stuff. Going backwards from 30 to one, I'll give you the groups as we go. The first group is called the Dregs. That's Washington number 30. They are 30th in defense. And the only reason they're 30th in defense is because we only have 30 teams. I actually think there's some way they could have been 36th in defense. They're the only team in the entire league that I do not wanna watch on league pass for any reason at all. They're one and five, 15 .6 point differential against them. Shoot this team into the sun. I cannot believe House thought this team was gonna go over 24 wins. They might not go over 14 wins. They're awful. I never want them on my TV. Next group, probably the lottery. I say probably, but I'm gonna zip through these teams and then go back to somebody. 29 Utah, 28 Portland, 27 Detroit, 26 San Antonio, 25 Charlotte, who is way more fun than I expected they would be to watch, and 24 Chicago. It just feels like the lottery's in the future for all these teams. I wanna talk about San Antonio really quick. Three and four, kind of a sneaky, tough schedule. They played Phoenix twice, the Clippers, Dallas, that goofy Indiana team, Houston, and Toronto. They're minus 8 .6 point differential because they've gotten blown out a couple of times, and they're 29th on defense, which I was surprised by per 100 possessions. The thing that I wanted to point out here, because this one Benyama thing is super important. This is the best teenager that's come into the league, at least since LeBron. We can debate. LeBron, I think in year two, for two months at least, was a teenager when he was putting up 27, seven, and seven. When he started his 27, seven, seven cycle. Wembe might be the best teenager I've ever seen. They're starting Jeremy Sohan at point guard, and Pop's been transparent about this. No, no, we know we're gonna take some lumps. We're trying to figure this out. I went to the game when they played the Clippers, I talked about it in a previous pod, and it was just an absolute debacle, watching poor Sohan try to run the offense, bring the ball up. Now we're seeing teams starting to pressure them because he's not a point guard. He's a small forward. There's crazy stats now. Trey Jones, just by being on this team and not being Jeremy Sohan, is now one of the best advanced metrics point guards of all time. Right now, his per 100 on -off is plus 28 .3 because Sohan is minus 22 .7. That's how disparate the two things are. Which brings me to my point, this is too important. You have the best teenager maybe ever. You have one of the best league pass players already in the entire league in Wimby. I have no idea how long he's gonna stay healthy, knock on wood, hear me knock really loud. I just got my dog going. No, that was me, dumb ass. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is on Indiana, and they have Halliburton, who's averaging a 24 -12. He's awesome. They have Nembhard, who's great as a backup. McConnell's like, he's 13 minutes a game. He's clearly a trade piece for them. Just go get him. I'm not saying San Antonio has to make the playoffs, but they need to be entertaining, and Wimby needs to play with point guards. He clearly needs just to play off people, high screens, all that stuff. They need one more point guard. TJ McConnell is my choice. They have all their own firsts. They're not gonna trade those obviously, but they have some goofy picks. They have Charlotte's top 14 protected first. They have a pretty good Chicago first that I wouldn't give up. They have a first swap with Boston. There's ways to do this. I would just put that Charlotte pick next year on the table and just grab them because you guys hit the lottery. Literally, with Wimby -Dyama, literally hit the lottery. You hit the lottery and you hit the lottery. Get to do two point guards. We're not asking for much here. I wanna watch this guy. I wanna enjoy him play basketball. All right, next section is panic time. Number 23, Memphis. They're one and six. They finally got out to Schneider. And number 22, Sacramento, who lost twice to Houston in three days by 18 and 25. No Darren Fox for either game. Panic time in this respect. I know we're six games in the season, seven games in the season, but the West is one of those things where you're gonna look up and the car is left. The car has left the driveway and your family is gone. You're gonna be basically Kevin and home alone if you don't get your shit together. And I don't even wanna be two games under 500 in the West. That's how deep and good the West is. So when you're one and six, like all of a sudden two and 12, two and 13, Sacramento could all of a sudden be three and nine. I would just be nervous constantly. This is not like last year when the Lakers started out two and 10 and ended up making the playoffs. Nobody is doing that this year. The cutoff line is gonna be 46 wins. Memphis looks, they just can't score. And I think it's gonna be really, we talked about this verno last week. It's gonna be really hard for them to crawl back and be at least like 11 and 14, something like that by the time Ja comes back. The Sacramento thing, we predicted this when we did the over -under preview, like the conference is way better and they stayed basically the same. And now Fox is hurt. So it can take Fox going out for 10 games and all of a sudden you're not even in the playing game. I would just be nervous, so it's both of those teams. Again, it's early. Next group, friskier than we hoped. We have number 21, Brooklyn. Ben Simmons averaging almost 11 rebounds and seven assists a game. And yet you can't play him at crunch time, bizarre. Number 20, Orlando. Number 19, Houston. Number 18, Indiana. And number 17, Toronto. Just quickly on Houston, a delightful league pass team. I had no idea. It's like being at a buffet dinner and somebody brings like some, have you ever had a fried oyster? It's like, great, I'll try that. And then it's delicious. They play hard. I like watching them. And I did not expect a Shungun to be a potential all -star, but that's where we are. They're three and three. Again, they beat Sacramento twice, we'll see. But Orlando at number 20. Every time I do this, I'm gonna have a BS all -star of the week. I used to do this when I wrote my column back in the day. I used to call them the Bill Simmons all -stars, just people that I just liked for whatever reason. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't really know fully what he is. He tries harder than everybody on every other team. He really gives a shit. He feels additive in all these different ways. And yet at the same time, he'll absolutely like airball a three in one of the biggest moments of the game. But that guy cares. I watched a game where he got this hustle rebound. Can't remember who they, they lost at the buzzer. Get this hustle rebound and dribble back out and took a three and missed it and put his jersey over his head for like the next minute and a half. I actually think he might've been crying. He was so upset they lost. He is the most competitive random guy in the league. I love Jalen Suggs. Oh, as Saruti said, it's the Laker game. I love Jalen Suggs. I don't know what he is. He might just end up being like a seventh man on a championship team at some point. He's gonna have a moment on a good team. I don't know if Orlando's gonna be the team, but it's gonna happen for that dude. I also really like Anthony Black more than I thought, but we'll see. It's early for this team. Palo hasn't gotten going. Somehow they're four and three. We'll see when the schedule gets harder. Toronto at number 17, just the Lakers miss Schroeder. And I like what Schroeder's doing in Toronto. They're three and four, but they easily could be five and two. I've been watching them because I have their over under, I bet on. And I like where Toronto's at. I think they're better than they were last year. I think they're at least a playing team. Number 18, Indiana though. So their second in offensive rating and 25th in defense. In the 25th, I was actually surprised it wasn't worse. They can't guard anybody. They're shooting 43s a game. Their top six guys are all over 40 % three point shooting. They're kind of like the 80s Nuggets, but with threes. And they just play with a certain pace. And some days it's going to be bad. Like the Celtics put 155 points on them and it probably could have been 160 if they'd made some shots. Hal Burton's special. He's a 24 -12 this year. But the crazy thing about their offense is that Matherin's been terrible. And Matherin was a guy that they were like, this is going to be our guy. He's making a leap. We're going to trade Buddy Heald. We got to give the card keys to Matherin in that spot. And he's been bad. And their offense has still been pretty good. This is a team that anytime you see them, I don't know if you bet basketball, but if they're like plus 11, plus 12, it's like they could beat anybody any night. I'm just telling you. I'm not saying they're going to win a round in the playoffs, but just night to night, that's a team that they could just go 22 for 45 from three, make some shots. And Hal Burton, they actually should be five and two. Hal Burton blew the last possession against Charlotte the other night. But I've enjoyed watching them. I've watched an insane amount of basketball, by the way. All right, next group, the wildcards. I don't have a lot to say about these teams, but we'll go in order. Number 16, New Orleans, just seem jinxed. I'll come back to them in a second. Number 15, Cleveland. I want to see them with Garland and just, I want to watch them for a couple of weeks. I like the Struce edition, but we'll see. The Knicks, they're three and four. Nice win against the Clippers. The Randall thing continues to be nuts. Now he's taking out guys in the other team. Clippers 13, just traded for Harden. We talked about the Knicks and Clippers last week. Look, the Clippers, they played one game and they got killed by the Knicks. They're worse. I told you that last week. Still feel that way. Guess what they can't do now? Any transition stuff. The Knicks, 26 to six in fast break points last night. Rebounding. They got out, rebounded by 17 by the Knicks. Harden just brings so many things that you don't want in a starting five, but then he brings the great passing and the scoring and he can have the ball all the time. They don't need anyone to have the ball all the time because they have all these other guys who need the ball. I just don't like the trade. I continue to not like it and I don't understand it. I actually liked the team they had before they made the trade. So congrats again, Clippers. Number 12, Miami. 28th offensively. Kind of feels worse when you watch them. They haven't had their full team for a couple weeks. I'm not gonna judge them at all until December. I'm not gonna judge Dallas either. Dallas I have at number 11. They're six and one, fourth in offense. They've had a really easy schedule. So that's why, let's see what happens. Their one loss is to Denver. Let's see what happens when they play some tough teams all in a row and have one of those four games in six nights or three on the road. One of those situations. But they are in better shape than they were last year. And you look at the Grant Williams piece, which I'm not spiteful when I watch my old players. I'm rooting for Grant Williams. It's like seeing somebody you dated that you still have a good relationship with. It was nice to see him do well for them. Derek Lively seems like they have something. We talked about him last week, but he's at least like a rim runner in that kind of Nick Claxton world, but maybe a little more violent alley -oop or a little young Clint Cappelli. The Kyrie thing is the piece that I'm really interested in this. He finally had a good game last night, but for this season, 24 % shooting, 3 .8 free throws a game, which are always the two numbers to look at with Kyrie. What's he shooting threes? Is he getting in the line? And so far it's been neither, but he seems happy. When you watch them, they've been a surprisingly pleasant watch, and he seems like in a good spot. So I don't want to jinx it because as annoying as he's been over the years, and you know my stance on Kyrie, I just don't trust him. And I just feel like a seven -year track record of imploding kind of has to start to mean something after a while, but it is fun to watch him play basketball. And it does feel like he's got a specific spot on this team. They don't have to rely on him too much. It's very similar to where he was in 15 and 16 and 17 with the Cavs where he could kind of float in and out like a cat with LeBron. It's like, I'm feeling it. Oh, all right, let's give Kyrie the ball. The shooting going down though, it's a small sample size, but they also haven't been playing tough teams yet. And I'm just monitoring that because with guards, it can kind of sometimes go sideways pretty fast, and you don't realize it happened until after it happened. Just quickly going backwards to number 16, New Orleans, because they lost Ingram, they lost McCollum already. And they have this Hawkins who they drafted that everybody liked coming out of the draft, but the fact that he can play right away has actually kind of saved them a little bit. I just, I still feel like we need to do some sort of ceremony or something with them. Like we need the people from the Conjuring to just do something with New Orleans basketball. It just shouldn't be this bad every year. Your team shouldn't have two, three major injuries every year. You should have good luck at some point. And this goes back to the seventies. Remember, when they moved, when they became the New Orleans Jazz, their first major, major giant trade was for Gail Goodrich with the Lakers. They had to give up two first rounders, and he immediately blew out his Achilles. He played, I'm gonna say, less than a season. And one of the picks turned out to be Magic Johnson. So that's where we started with New Orleans, and it's been awful ever since. Nothing good has happened in this team other than they've won a couple of lotteries, but even the lotteries they won, the Davis, Anthony when they were in Charlotte before they got to New Orleans, they bring him to New Orleans and he wants to leave. And then they win the Zion thing, which seemed like the luckiest thing that ever happened to them. And meanwhile, we're still waiting for him to play two straight months. So Conjuring people, something. We need something to happen with that team. All right, the top 10. We're at a good pace right now. Where are we at? Yeah, feeling good. This is working. Young and hungry is the next thing. We got Oklahoma City at number 10 and Atlanta at number nine. If you remember, Atlanta was one of the, these are the two teams I was going nuts for before the season for their over -unders. I love the Atlanta over -under. I love the New Orleans over. And I like what I've seen from both. OK sees four and three, Atlanta's four and three. Atlanta's sixth in offense. And that's notable because Trae Young has sucked again shooting west. He's 28 % from three. Last year's 33 % from three. This might not be happening the next Steph Curry thing. Like what age does he have to hit where we have to go? All right, he's not the next Steph Curry. Because I think I hit that age last year at age, when I was age 53. I think I hit that for Trae. They killed Minnesota, which is notable. We'll talk about Minnesota in a second. But they really, I watched that game and they really, really, really handled them. I like this Atlanta team. And I think there's a path for them to be a three or a four seed if Trae can get going. And then OKC, trade for a big already. You're a guy short, like stop. You guys have a chance to be like a 50 win team. What are you doing? I want to see what's going on with Josh Getty in about two weeks. Whether it looks different than it has for the first couple of weeks here. I don't like, he's not going in the free throw line at all. 1 .3 a game. 26 % three point shooting, which we knew. He can't shoot threes. But there's also like the Chet piece of it. Seems like it's throwing them off. And I've watched games where they've taken them out at crunch time.

"Lending and kind of like you know volatile less and kind of you know economic or market conditions more conducive to supporting asset and prices that involved you know central banks going out and buying lots of government bonds mainly and they and they do that by creating reserves which is a special kind of money used by central banks banks and governments alone and they kind of they buy treasuries or guilts from the market by by doing this so we had like several iterations of that sort of growing larger and larger in the years following the financial crisis and and then we get to the covid pandemic and especially in the us that's when this kind of of sort central bank money creation really you know ballooned to like to far far greater levels than it had been before they created like trillions of dollars worth of these reserves in order to buy you know more treasuries and pump money into the economy to help us get through the pandemic at that time. So so we're kind of already in the era of quantitative tightening what is the new aim for central bank balance sheets? Well so they've been continuing to you know I guess reduce amount the of you know excess cash in in the financial system you know it's sort of they started I think even before you know inflation got off the ground and interest rates really started to rise spectacularly but this this is there's you know part of it is to do with you know the tightening of monetary policy in response to inflation in the last sort of what year 18 months or so but there's a kind of there's another thing going well on here which as is that you know that they want to get back to a point where it's markets that that sort of you know allocate the amount of you know money in money to price it more than you know central banks used to kind of nudge the price of money from the sidelines and sort of set the base rates and let the market do the rest but in the of world like vast amounts of reserves that's it's all been kind of set by the central bank directly so they're just trying to you know regardless of the fight fight against inflation they're still trying to just kind of pull back a little bit and their own thing Paul to what extent do you think the markets are overlooking this they're obsessed of course with the question as to when central banks will start cutting by high and by how much a market slightly overlooking the the potential impact of this unwind of balance sheets i mean uh i guess yes and no i mean there's a certain class of sort of you know i guess macroeconomic um or you know macro specialists who are really obsessed with these kinds of numbers like the level of reserves uh in the banking system because they think that you know this really helped to drive risk assets much higher higher during the period when central banks were expansive and they're really concerned that you know when we get to the point where central banks have pulled too much money out of the economy that's going to have a really and already has been having a really sort of like you know uh uh uh downward pressure adding downward pressure to a lot of financial asset prices so a lot of people are really interested in it but there's like there's a lot of kind of very technical very geeky very sort of like difficult stuff here about you know exactly how much reserves we need what the level is when we get there and what that will mean at that moment yeah i've got to wonder whether it's going to come up at the bank of england's financial stability report later on today of course we had there's been lots of complaints about the bank of england the pace at which it's doing qt and this is something that maybe they'll bring up in terms of their assessment of market stability here in the uk we're going to get that report at 10 30 a .m london time and then we'll hear from the governor andrew bailey at 11 a .m later but paul really we appreciate your analysis that's our opinion columnist paul j davis who's been writing about central bank balance sheets and how quickly they can be reduced coming up next we'll have a check on the markets for you as we are looking at u .s futures pointing to a higher opening this morning it's also risk on across europe stay with us for this more is blembeck this is bloomberg daybreak europe i'd rather focus on efficiency in the public sector and prioritize cutting people's taxes rather than the government spending ever more of their money the economy is set to strengthen again over the coming years as inflation falls further uk inflation is becoming homegrown much more and we think that inflation is going to be really challenging to squeeze out of the system bloomberg daybreak europe on bloomberg radio here's half past nine in london i'm lizzie burton and i'm tom mackenzie this is bloomberg daybreak europe checking the markets all day long here at it's bloomberg nine thirty as we mentioned checking on the benchmark the european stock six hundred adding to the gains of yesterday grinding out further upside of two tenths of a percent the footsie 100 having a decent session as well lifted by gains coming through for basic resources on the back of higher iron ore and copper prices the footsie 100 back above that 7
A highlight from What a Weird Week Halloween Special 2023: Weird-o-ween! Fri Oct 27, 2023
"It's the What A Weird Week Show Halloween Special, 2023. Hi, everybody. It's Weird. This is Life Trend News, here on Weirdly. Weird. Damn. Well, we got a great show for you next week, so welcome to The Weird Stuff. Hi, friends. I'm Scott. Welcome to our What A Weird Week Halloween Special. Usually, we have a top 10 countdown of weird news. This episode is all weird Halloween. For show notes, go to shownotes .page. shownotes .page. And now, it's time to get hollow weird. Season four, episode 57, first published on Friday, October 27th, 2023. Kicking things off at number 10, a quick check in on our last year headline about Halloween costumes that would be popular in the year 2022 from WSYR Television. Last year, the number one costume, according to WSYR, was Max from Stranger Things. Also in there was Elvis and House of the Dragon. I don't know how that worked out where you were at, but at my work, nobody dressed like any of those. It was all Yellowstone and dollar store horns people. I'm an ambiguous creature with dollar store horns. A lot of that. For 2023, according to Google Frightgeist, the top three costumes, Barbie, Princess, Spider -Man. Some classics. Nine. Number nine is some stats that I dug up for Paranormal Day. Oh, dug up. I didn't even mean that one. Anyway, these stats, still spooky at Halloween. Paranormal Day by the numbers, 83 % of people surveyed said they had some kind of paranormal activity in their home. 83%, that seems rather high. Hearing sounds or voices is the number one most common paranormal activity. And lights turning on and off is up there as well. One in 10 people say they sold their home after a paranormal experience. Here's some good news. Split level homeowners. Your home is far less likely to be haunted. Based on reports of hauntings, according to this article, split level homes, not as frequently haunted. Something to consider if you're in the market. This is what a weird week. Okay, before we go any further, we want to welcome a new sponsor to the program. Now this message. Yes, who is it? Special delivery. Special delivery? Why, that's one of the best kinds of delivery. I wonder what it could be. Oh, it's a lovely pumpkin. Oh, there's a message carved into it. Why, it's a Halloween pumpkin. Let's see, what's it say? Dear Larry, we are over. Last night was a horrible mistake. Oh, there's more. I hope we never see each other again. But if we do, I will be carrying a sock full of butter, which I will swing at your kneecaps. Signed, Sharon. Oh, it's from Sharon. Scotty and Tony brand dumpkins. A fun Halloween pumpkin that also tells that certain someone it's over. They are dumped. That this pumpkin is the only one who will be around to listen to your nose whistle from now on, Larry. Hasta luego from Scotty and Tony brand dumpkins. Available in orange, white, and new for this season, smelly. Welcome back. This is the what a weird week show Halloween special. For number eight, we're going to take a quick, careful, cautious look at Ouija boards. I feel those things terrify me and I feel like you should steer clear of those things. The legend of how it got its name. According to the legend, one of the investors said to the Ouija board, what's your name? And it's spelled out Ouija. Legend. Another legend, when they went to get it registered at the patent office, they had to show the patent office guy how it worked and they used it to spell out his name. Again, legend. Although portions of that are confirmed. We have a link in the show notes. They did have to do a demonstration for the patent office. The things sold like crazy. They had to open more factories to produce Ouija boards. In 1927, one of the guys running the company fell to his death tragically from the roof of a new factory. One that he claimed a Ouija board told him to build. Sometimes the actual stories behind the legends just as freaky. Number seven, some tips on candy hangovers. If you end up with a candy hangover the day after Halloween, consider eating pineapple. When you link to an article, here's a quote. The tropical fruit contains enzymes that aid digestion and break down proteins that usually cause bloat. Also contains 180 milligrams of bloat -busting potassium per cup. Researchers have also found that pineapple can reduce colonic inflammation that may be leading to that distended stomach. It sort of ended a little bit, to me, a little gross with the distended stomach. But we put the link and it does seem to be a good tip. If you're going to have a candy hangover. Thanks for checking out the What A Weird Week show. This is our Halloween special. For more, see show notes dot page six. Number six. First, a look back to 2022. The most popular pet Halloween costumes for last year, according to Canine Journal. Ghost, spider, lion, witch, bumblebee, bat, hot dog and pumpkin. Number one, last year, Canine Journal has updated the article. Let's run down the list here. Oh, and from the National Retail Federation, pet costume sales projected to be 700 million dollars this year. Now, spoiler alert, but pumpkin and hot dog continue to rule the list of favorite dog costumes. Here's there's not a lot of change for 2023 pet costumes. Witch, ghost, lion, cat, devil, spider, bumblebee, bat, hot dog, pumpkin. So really, you got witch, you got cat. They moved up the list a little, but there's not much change other than that. I do like the irony of dressing your dog as a cat if the dog's OK with it. It's hilarious, but not a lot of variety for our family pets. Number five is an update to a story we had in June when we talked about the Ohio lady who made the news for refusing to remove a nine foot tall werewolf statue. Mary Simmons says Phil the werewolf has sort of become a mascot in her yard. Went up as a Halloween decoration, but after October was over, she started to really enjoy having Phil up as a year round decoration. Mary began to dress Phil for different seasons. Somebody complained and the city sent Mary a warning, but then the city said they're not going to follow up or enforce the werewolf removal. So at that time, back in June, on this very show, sounded like Mary won the neighborhood werewolf fight. Ready for the update? Just last week, Mary dressed up Phil as Phantom of the Opera. Phantom Phil of the werewolf opera. Sounds a little bit like a Tim Burton movie. Stop motion animation Tim Burton project. If you happen to have his home number. Welcome back to weirdo ween the what a weird week show Halloween special for show notes. Go to show notes. Page four. Number four is an update to a story that we just had a little bit ago, but a fantastic Halloween ish story. When that Chucky doll was placed in handcuffs, arrested, and booked for crimes in Mexico. At the time, I wholeheartedly supported this move because I mean, you watch those Chucky movies. One thing you learn is you cannot trust evil Chucky. In case you missed it, here's the story. The episode is still online if you want to listen to it, but essentially there was a series of attempted robberies in Mexico and authorities traced the crime back to a couple of suspects. One was a Chucky doll and the other was the owner of the Chucky doll. Witness reports seem to indicate the human suspect got arrested after making Chucky hold a large knife to scare people into handing over their money. Suspect was believed to have been high at the time. Here's the update. It's not a lot of a follow up to it. Still some unanswered questions. Human suspect released whereabouts of the doll unknown. What? That's how it all starts you guys. Every Chucky movie. I mean, they had him in custody. They had Chucky locked up. And now they don't know Chucky's whereabouts? This is bad. Number three is another update. A little while ago, we sent out congratulations to Steve from Missouri who broke the Guinness World Record for longest journey by pumpkin boat. So, fitting to have this in our Halloween episode, isn't it? Pumpkins, Halloween, you should try it. They go good together. It took almost 11 hours to paddle his 1 ,200 pound pumpkin 38 miles on the shark infested Missouri River. At the time, I wrote citation needed in the show notes. We weren't sure if the river was shark infested. Well, the update to this story, it turns out the Missouri River is not shark infested. Home to thousands of piranha though.

A highlight from Tim Burton - 'Wednesday' [LIVE]
"Hi everyone and thank you for tuning in to the 507th episode of the Hollywood Reporters Awards Chatter Podcast. I'm the host Scott Feinberg and my guest today is a filmmaker unlike any other. With directing credits dating back some 40 years including 1985's Pee Wee's Big Adventure, 1988's Beetlejuice, 1989's Batman, 1990's Edward Scissorhands, 1994's Ed Wood, 2003's Big Fish, 2005's Corpse Bride, 2007's Sweeney Todd, 2012's Frankenweenie, 2014's Big Eyes, and most recently in 2022, half of the eight episodes that comprise the first season of Netflix's giant hit drama series, Wednesday, for which he is personally nominated for two Emmys, Best Directing for a Comedy Series, and as one of the show's executive producers, Best Comedy Series. The New York Times has called him a visionary artist, noting, quote, he has developed a singular if not easily pinned down sensibility. His style is strongly visual, darkly comic, and morbidly fixated, but it is rooted just as much in his affection for monsters and misfits, which in his movies often turn out to be the same thing. He all but invented the vocabulary of the modern superhero movie, brought new vitality to stop motion animation, and has come to be associated, for better or worse, with anything that is ghoulish or ghastly without being inaccessible. He may be the most widely embraced loner in contemporary cinema, close quote. His most frequent collaborator, Johnny Depp, who he has directed in 19 films, said that he is, quote, a filmmaker I admire, but he's much, much more than that. Without embarrassing him, he's a true artist, which is something I wasn't sure was possible in today's cinema. But he's the real thing. He's a visionary, an auteur, totally uncompromising, close quote. He's talking, of course, about Tim Burton. Over the course of a conversation in front of a large audience at the Burbank International Film Festival, including two of Burton's most celebrated and longtime collaborators, the composer Danny Elfman and the costume designer Colleen Atwood, the 65 -year -old and I discussed his complicated childhood and how it led him to pursue drawing and attracted him to characters regarded by others as freaks, how he wound up working at Disney Animation and then making his feature directorial debut with a live action film, the challenges of getting films made even with hits under his belt and what ultimately led him to TV for Wednesday, plus much more. And so, without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Hello, everyone, and Tim, thank you so much for doing this. Great to see you. I normally begin every episode of this podcast asking our guests where they were born and raised, which I think we have addressed, but I do want to get into it a little bit more because, you know, over the years, you have expressed that sort of what you just alluded to, that, you know, you were very shaped by Burbank. For better or worse, there were elements that were great, elements that were complicated. Can you talk about, but one thing that you've always said is that without Burbank and without those childhood experiences, the filmmaker we know today would not exist. So just break it down. Well, I mean, you know, I keep reading that I hate, you know, like the press has a way of sort of taking what you say and take out the nuance and subtlety and, you know, like go right to the core. But I think, you know, and when I said about whatever I said about Burbank, it had more to do with my own psychological state of mind than it did with the actual city of Burbank. You know what I mean? So and that's a bit too complicated and psychological to go into now, but in the sense that, you know, you grow up in feeling a certain way, Burbank helped shape me because, you know, there was like my first film school was the Cornell Theatre. There was this amazing theatre that was torn down, I think, in the late in the 80s. I don't know when it was, but, you know, they would for 50 cents, you could see a triple feature. Like, I saw one amazing, I saw War of the Gargantuas, Monster Zero and Destroy All Monsters in one go, you know, 50 cents. So that's where I learned my love of film and that really, so there was amazing places and it was incredible. There was like five movie theaters, Burbank at a certain time, and then they all got sort of taken away. But for me, that place, especially that theater was very, very special to me. And you've said that during your years in Burbank, which I think up until 12, you're living at, was it Evergreen Street? Is that where you were? Yeah, right down the street. Just down the street here. You can all walk over there after this. Yeah, we'll do a little. Check it out. Then you moved in with your grandmother also in Burbank, right? But as a bit of a loner, as a kid, you were kind of thinking about things, dreaming about things in everywhere from some of the cemeteries in town to... Yeah, the one right next door here, you know, I used to play around there, you know, that was, yeah. Yeah. You know, and I could look out my window, the thing that freaked me out, I looked out my window at Disney and this was like the weird, called the Bermuda Triangle of Burbank. Because I could see where I was born at St. Joseph's and then I could see the cemetery where everybody, all my family was buried. And I was, so it was like a weird Bermuda Triangle that I had to escape at a certain point because it was just too scary. Now, you've also said that as a kid, you were, you know, not only a bit of a loner, but sort of not particularly communicative, verbal with other people. You lived in your imagination, which manifested itself through drawing. Can we talk about how that entered the picture? And as was noted, I mean, to the extent that it was, you were talented enough that in Burbank, your work, anti -littering art was on the back of every garbage truck. I wanted $10, and at that time, that's probably like about a million now. Right, right, right. But drawing was an outlet for you. What kind of things were you drawing as a kid? Posters for trash trucks, I don't know, I mean, whatever. But also, I mean, the movies that you were drawn to, and I believe maybe therefore some of things the you were drawing were things that other people might find frightening or scary, but that you actually, in a way, related to, right? Like what are we talking about? Yeah, but I mean, like, you know, I didn't feel that different. It felt like, you know, I love famous monsters. I wait for that magazine to come out. I love monster movies. I live near a cemetery. You know, I mean, you use what you have, you know what I mean? Yeah, yeah, yeah. So it was good. Totally. And I think also, too, growing up in Southern California, where you don't really have seasons, I think that's why I kind of got into, you know, like things like Nightmare for Christmas or Halloween, just because it gave you a sense of occasion, a sense of season that you didn't get through the weather, you know, I mean, to experience, like holidays, you had to go like to the main, like, at Save On and look at the holiday displays to kind of experience.

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/01/23
"The song was iconic enough, The Champs and Tequila from 1957, but a whole new generation had it burned onto their brains in 1985. I now cannot hear this record, Mike, without seeing Pee Wee Herman up dancing on a biker bar after he knocked over all their motorcycles and then won them over. With that ridiculous dance to this, he was not my cup of tea, Pee Wee was an acquired taste that I never really acquired, I had no use for that weird supposedly children's show, but Pee Wee's Big Adventure was a comic masterpiece, Phil Hartman, Tim Burton's first directorial thing, and they come to the Alamo and have some fun with Texas. This was a weird one, he was 70 and I didn't even know he was sick, he'd apparently battled cancer for like six years and did so kind of quietly. And he wrote a statement before he died talking about how much he loved the support that he got and how much he loved and appreciated his fans, and he apologized for keeping that battle private. Isn't that interesting? It was a very gracious thing and people who met him, I've got a number of people who I know who met him over the years and said he was kind of a gracious, humble guy in real life, Paul Rubins was his name and just too young, 70 years old after again a very private battle with cancer. Too bad. And he had, and we all, some of us remember this, 1991 I guess, the unfortunate arrest in an adult theater, farewell, enough about that, and even that turned to a reputational advantage as he led off the 1991 MTV Music Awards by coming out and saying, I heard any good jokes lately, because oh my gosh, the jokes, they were brutal, this event was brutal. This is a man who so valued his reputation with children, of course if he really valued it, don't go to the theater, but nonetheless he said, he was always a smoker, always a smoker, Paul Rubins was, and he said, don't ever take a picture of me smoking because too many kids watch me. I'm a huge believer in redemption, a huge believer that stumbles should not define you, and it certainly seems that the 30 plus years since then, and the amazing work that was the cup of tea of some and not others, but the people in the film industry, show business industry, Conan O 'Brien was effusive in the kindness and the generosity of this man, and so, and when I put it up on Twitter, all kinds of folks just said, and I think it's generational, I think I'm a smidge old to have had an appreciation for the weekend morning show or whatever, but a lot of people loved it and loved him, so there we are. Yeah, sad news, I also appreciate how you indulge me in my love of these true crime documentaries, you know, I think our friendship is so fun in that I indulge you, your love of NASA and all things space, and you put up with my love of true crime documentaries, I have stumbled upon the mother load of true crime documentaries, The Staircase, now it's on Netflix, it's not a new documentary, but for some reason it popped up on my viewing list, I've gotten hooked, followed the Mark Davis rule about do you care about the characters, this guy, he was a writer named Mike Peterson, and he's accused of, in the documentary, he was accused of beating his wife to death, and there is such a sordid story, and what he did was, he invited this film crew, and I believe they're from Quebec, but it's a French Canadian film crew, but it's all, I mean, it's not that influence in the documentary, and Mark, the thing is, like 14 parts long and every episode's an hour, I'm blurry eyed because I was up till one in the morning last night, and I'm still not through it, I've got two more episodes to go, it is so good, oh my gosh, this guy, I mean, let me just quickly, please, I seek to understand, I just, oh I know, the wife is found at the bottom of the steps, all the crime scene photos show her body there, and she's got seven lacerations in her head, and he says, of course, she fell down the steps.
Guards on famous yacht mistakenly shoot at Yemen Coast Guard
"Gods on a famous yacht have mistakenly shot at a Yemen coast guard craft. Private armed guards aboard the yacht once owned by the late Welsh act Richard Burton, have opened fire on the Yemeni coast guard, sparking a gunfight in the gulf of Aden. It's not immediately clear if anyone was wounded. Yemen authorities had originally thought it was an attack, however, a private intelligence firm says the guards aboard the ship had mistaken the Yemenis for pirates and opened fire.

Chris Cole's, will you born ready or you just thrilled to be alive? There's a couple of things that were missed there. Come on, Eric has to sleep sometime. Eric, Eric, what are you doing? No, the best line in the film is, you know, you know what Jack Burton says at a time like this and the guy says, who's Jack Burton? And he goes, Jack Burton, me. I don't know why I always love that life. And then at the end, he's leaving. He's leaving to go back on the road. And Kim Cattrall sitting there looking all sexy, like, you know, you're just going to leave me here. And her friend says, well, aren't you at least going to kiss her? And he just turns to her and he goes, now. It's just what's up. It's like this movie is so crazy. There's so many unexpected moments. It's so funny. I mean, it's really a funny movie. And I don't know, I love that character. He's such a dope, but his buddy, his buddy, who's sincerely a badass. Wang, treats him with the utmost respect. I mean, he said when he's trying to cheat him out of his night's winnings. Yeah, you have that's true, yeah. But throughout the rest of the movie, as they're going out of this adventure, he sort of treats him like he's almost superior to him as a hero, right? And he's got this, he's sort of like AOC. Totally incompetent, but with tons, tons of confidence, you know?

Because the producer said, he's such a dance. You've got to explain it. Let's put something in after they filmed the movie. They had to be far, Kurt Russell at the beginning of that little clip. Chris, an unusual character. And in the director's voice-over, if you watch it, they keep talking about the fact that other actors are like her also refused to take this part because they didn't want to look stupid and they just have this ego trip too many egos. I guess that doesn't surprise you having worked in Hollywood. No, yeah. People don't want to look bad. People don't want to look stupid. People don't want to look silly. But every once in a while, you just have to go with it and have a little bit of fun. And yeah, Kurt Russell's great. I mean, what a down to earth guy. He doesn't mind being a little self deprecating. The funny thing about this character is it really is over the top, like massively over the top. Everything he does is in that sort of John Wayne kind of attitude, right? There's a slow draw everything. He thinks that he's the hero of this story. But he's not the hero this story is buddy. Yeah, the little Asian guys, the hero. The little Asian guy. Who can kick anybody's butt? He's really the hero. He's got to save the girl. He's got to do all this stuff. Jack Burton shoots some concrete above his head and knocks himself out at one point in the movie.

Behind the sky dome that only they and the ship's technicians could access. Ben fumbled through the dim room, his eyes not as sharp as when his own graduation token had weighed down his pocket. He finally found the lighting unit in an upper corner. The unit was fabricated on the manufacturing deck out of recycled material as were all the items on the ship. It wasn't like they would stumble upon a giant deposit of glass or a new light diode bank floating in space. If they needed it, M deck made it. Only one more lighting unit was in stock. He'd sent a note to the M deck requesting more the last time the dome star burned out. That had been almost two months and they still hadn't brought me up. He would have to send a reminder. His dad's M deck team would have never taken that long. He thought. The bulb was about the size of a newborn baby. Cup her head. His dad had explained when his little sister had been born. He had cradled the bulb in his hands just as carefully. He couldn't help but feel like the bulbs had changed over the years. Hadn't the glass been a deeper blue when he was younger. The metal threading at the bottom had seemed more vibrant and heavier. It wasn't his imagination. He was sure of it. Maybe manufacturing was trying to conserve resources. He thought of his dad in his own sleeping part years ago. Shivering from sweat, coughing. Men stayed up with him at night, so his mother and sister could sleep. They talked about everything. Milking every second to make up for the ones they wouldn't get later. His father had started working on the manufacturing deck straight out of school. When Ben graduated, he insisted that Ben applied to watch crew. Instead of him deck. Then had asked him why during one of those late night conversations. His father, sipped his water and fought for a long time. Are you happy? On the watch deck. Ben shrugged. He was almost 25 at that point. Yeah. I guess. You wouldn't be happy on him deck. You can leave your work on the watchtower and come home. M deck. Comes with you. You bring home worries. Did we make it strong enough? How many do we need? Do we have enough, he stopped and looked at Ben, looked him deep in the eyes. You don't need to worry about those things with the rest of your life. He had thought about that conversation many times over the years. Enough. Ben carried the fresh bull to the moon, elevator, and pressed the up button. He had asked the supervisor why it was called that in his first week on the watch deck. She explained that the builders of the ship intended the giant ball on the dome to be a painted backlit replica of the moon, as seen in the earth's sky. It was helpful for the first generation of people on the ship to see something familiar. But as the generations passed, memories of the moon became legends. The paint faded and the ball started feeling more like a destination than a memory, a sign of the future, not an homage to the past. The dome star slowly became assemble for the destination star. Then understood why Eric didn't want to come up here, it wasn't the height. It was being so close to something he would never get to see. The second star room token Ben had seen, was in his senior year of high school. His graduation token. Just like Eric, he received it after the assembly. The entire graduating class gathered in a room alone. No teachers, no other students, only them waiting for a special guest speaker. They had all been surprised when captain Brooks entered the room. He had been the sitting captain before captain sturgill, and he had helmed the ship since Ben

"Hi, I'm LeVar Burton, and this is LeVar Burton Reed. In every episode, I handpick a different piece of short fiction and I read it to you. The only thing these stories have in common is that I love them and I hope you will too. If you read or watch sci-fi, you're probably familiar with the concept of the generation ship. It's the idea that if you wanted to send humans to a distant star and you didn't have a spacecraft that could travel fast enough to get them there in their lifetime, you could plan for that crew to live on board for multiple generations before the spacecraft finally reaches its destination. It's kind of like a Noah's ark traveling between stars. You need to set up the crew with a closed system that can sustain them with food, water, air, for many years. Now we're far from making the generation ship a reality, but we are experimenting quite a bit with these closed systems and what exactly we need to live and thrive. How we can replicate this in places other than earth. A couple of years ago, I moderated a conversation about the documentary spaceship earth, which was about the biosphere two project. Biosphere two was originally intended to show how a closed ecological system bubble, if you will, with his own water and air, dirt, crops, and animals, how that could support human life. However, if you plop that bubble down in outer space, you could survive. The protagonist of today's story is living in a closed system on a generation ship, moving slowly through space. He doesn't have firsthand knowledge of earth. He's literally never stepped foot on it. It's called the destination ship, and it's by the tennessean Gregory marlowe, Gregory is an animator writer and an assistant professor in east Tennessee state university's digital media program. Greg's story really deeply resonated with me and I'm excited to share it with you. Please check out the written content advisory and the episode description if that is your thing and if you're ready, let's take a deep breath.

She was alone, which was unusual. We hadn't spoken in years, but I saw her around the campus frequently enough. She was always flanked by at least a couple of sleepwalkers. She had headed up the project that created them, and now she was in charge of ironing out the kinks. Improving motor control and decreasing response time. Can I trust you? She asked when she saw me. Maybe? I said? I don't think I can, but I don't have any choice. That's fair. And I said, they're trying to merge our projects. It's fucked. What are you talking about? I asked. Project moirai. And project was Denver. They're being combined. That doesn't make sense. I said. The sleepwalker system, project was Denver, grew out of our early experiments. Figuring out how to keep people locked in dreams, taught us a lot about manipulating the nervous system. We eventually figured out how to separate the ghost from the machine. How to make people into puppets. This dovetailed beautifully with the development of the AD headsets as low cost replacements for AD pods. The headsets weren't as effective at suppressing physical responses as the pods, but as long as the dreams were pleasant and the work wasn't too strenuous, they stayed asleep. It was true that my work had been instrumental in developing the protocols for the sleepwalker architecture, but they were fundamentally different projects. I thought we were going to help people. Physical therapy, athletic training. Mobility for chronic pain patients. Hell, just giving people something to do on the subway, or a way to zone out while you're washing the dishes, but now it's all fucked. What are you talking about? They're running out of money. They still don't have a consumer grade unit and the market is dead. So they're combining our work to make something really evil. They're trying to get into the private prison business. It's perfect. Their minds are tormented by your nightmares while their bodies are hired out as cheap labor. They never wake up. Perfect. I don't make nightmares. I said, sure. Whatever. She said. You have proof? She threw a Manila folder at my feet. Check it. She said. Your boyfriend wrote the proposal. I picked up the folder. Paper? No trail. She said. This isn't a spy movie. I said, we work at an office. Don't be so dramatic. Send me an email. Just read it. She said. I sighed. Can I bum one? She gave me a cigarette and lit it with a lighter. We smoked together. We already treat them like slaves around here. That was never the plan. At least we pay them. I said. She rolled her eyes. Yeah, that totally makes it cool to turn people into robots. Payment.

So join me in my amazing guests for sauna sessions with prince EA, wherever you get your podcasts. Now, let's get back to our story. The dreamer facility was nothing like dream splash. Dream splash occupied a couple of floors in an ordinary downtown office building, and was furnished like any office might be. Dreamer felt like a colony on Mars, or mad scientists undersea base. Everything was clean and new and plastic and smooth. Soft blue or pure white and perfectly lit. I had seen attempts at a similar aesthetic plenty of times. Hip offices and fancy computer stores. But I had never seen it fully realized like this. Montgomery was giving me a tour, and I guess my interest in the design was visible. Think of it as a blank canvas. He said. You can make anything you want a reality here. Imagination and creativity are the only things that matter. Context. He's a relic of the past. I nodded. I read somewhere, there's a sensation of otherworldliness that theme parks and casinos attempt to cultivate to distance customers from reality, particularly the reality of human money. Dreamer had that vibe in spades, which made a lot of sense for a company that dealt in fantasy. We walked down a long haul lined with identical computer consoles. But gummery said they were for a project in development. But he didn't elaborate. Montgomery was interesting. He was tall, very handsome, and he spoke in an imperious mid Atlantic accent, like a villain in a movie from the 40s. But his manner was relaxed and open, and he wore jeans in a concert T-shirt. And he had a long, scruffy blond beard. There was something off about him. Something I couldn't quite read. And I found that appealing. Like when you listen to people speaking of foreign language, just for the music of it. He was pretty much locked into the corporate spiel, going on about how great it was to work there and how they were going to shatter the industry with new innovations without ever saying exactly what it was they were doing. I just nodded along. Half paying attention. I figured dreamer was just a bigger, better version of dream splash. Someone with deep pockets probably thought they could muscle their way in. Eat up all the market share, then get out before the bubble finally burst. I keep doing my old job with better pay. Maybe a fancier title, maybe for even richer doofuses. Millionaires, or even billionaires, I wondered what kind of things that people who own their own planes dream about. What do you dream about when you can buy anything you want? We stopped in front of a door. Montgomery opened it with a keycard. Inside was a desk, one of those consoles I had seen in the hall, a couple of AD pods with two V helmets attached. This is where you'll work. He said. Wow. I said. It's nice. It's all yours. All? As in the whole thing, like this is my office? Just for me? Office and laboratory, yes. Just for you. As head of the department. Head of the department. Yes. You'll be head of the content research team. To be honest, it's our smallest team. You'll only have four or 5 people working under you at any given time. Did I thought you just wanted me to be a dream concierge? He laughed. That's not our business model. Then what is your business model? What exactly do you do here? He smiled almost hungrily, and I realized he had been waiting for me to ask this the entire time. How a mission, a dreamer is simple. What's the main problem with augmented dreaming right now? No one can afford it, but the very wealthy. Even low end AD pods cost upwards of $5000 and each unit can only play dreams specifically designed for a particular user. Companies like green splash can produce them easily enough, but at high costs and often low quality. The market is small and the novelty is wearing off. We've known how to create augmented dreams for ten years now, but the tech is barely advanced since the guy and Rey. Our goal is to design an AD unit that is affordable for everyone

"Hi, I'm LeVar Burton, and this is LeVar Burton reads. In every episode, I handpick a different piece of short fiction. And I read it to you. Only thing these stories have in common is that I love them. And I hope you will, too. You know, I strive in my life to be a lucid dreamer. To actually practice attempting to influence what I dream to produce a state of dreaming where I am, in fact, aware that I am dreaming so that I can more control the events of the dream and most importantly, how I behave in the cause of those events. Lucid dreaming is fascinating to me because it allows us to experience things that we could never manifest in real life, like flying, right? It also allows our conscious brains to dictate those experiences, which is cool. And now there's even research being done to figure out if lucid dreaming can help us practice skills, train our brains. Like a surgeon could practice performing an operation, right? But it makes me think, should we intrude on our subconscious on our sleeping brains to exert controller to be productive and yet another aspect of our lives? Is it a good or bad idea?

Hey, my name is Kendall Bergen. I am a senior art director at 21 grams currently and I've been there now for a year. Coming up on a year. Yeah, just past the year. Nice. How's the year been going so far for you? By 2023 has been nice so far. I can't complain. I'm always excited for what comes each year. I try to eat it. I try to mix things up a little bit. Is there anything that you want to accomplish this year that you didn't accomplish last year like any new year's resolutions or stuff like that? I don't really do resolutions that much, but I guess if I had to say the closest thing to it is this year I want to travel a little bit more. I haven't traveled as much as I would like in a lot of ways these past few years, you know, of course there are the pandemic and stuff like that. So I want to get back to doing a little bit more. Yeah, I hear you there. I took my first plane trip since the pandemic back in October. I went to Toronto and spoke at a conference. I was tripping leading up to the trip. I was like 'cause you know you see on the news folks fighting the airports and shit and I'm like, I don't want to go and it's like some hassle. Like I just want to go to the airport, get on the plane, get where I got to go. You know what I'm saying? And it was fine. Once I got back into that rhythm, I was like, okay, this is good. I can do this. That's cool. You went to Toronto, all of Toronto. It's one of my favorite places to visit. That was my first time visiting, and I didn't get to see a whole lot of the city because they had us right by the convention venue where we spoke at. It was, I tell people that Toronto kind of feels like if Hollywood made a big city to shoot movies in, it would be Toronto. Like it feels like New York, but less like Gritty and grimy, in a way.

I think this has been a year that I've been able to really enjoy who I am as a creative person. I've been in part of all of those three things I've had some positive things that have happened. I've been able to get into some exhibitions, back to back, which is not always easy. I had my poetry as being was selected to be in a chat book that includes other poets in this D.C., Maryland, Virginia area. So that's going to be published soon. I've made tremendous headway in a book that I'm writing, which we can talk about later. So there's been a lot of things that have happened. I think it's been a year where I was able to focus a little bit more on some things. And I did a lot of spiritual work on abundance. Early part of the year. And though it didn't show up everywhere I wanted it to show up. It did show up. So I can't be mad.

When Did Marriage Become so Hard?
"To understand marriage. Today we thought it best to go back to a time and place when marriage was very different. Well i've been studying the history of family for many many years. But i specifically got interested in marriage as we got into these debates. About what traditional marriage was that. Stephanie coons. She's a professor at the evergreen state college and the author of the book marriage a history. Stephanie says the earliest marriages had nothing to do with the feelings of two people or their attraction to one. Another as you probably know marriage was much more about economics and acquiring powerful inlaws marriage originally arose in more egalitarian ban level societies as a way of sharing resources and establishing a peaceful relations with groups. That you might otherwise only see occasionally and you might not know if they were going to be friends or enemies It was a way of circulating obligations and goods. Mary my child off to you and that means you owe me things. But i also you things. Stephanie brought up a famous example from history. The union between cleopatra of egypt and mark antony of rome elizabeth taylor as cleopatra siren of the niles this is from a nineteen sixty three film version. Richard burton as mark antony impetuous leader once in pinson legion dreaded adversary on the field of battle. The hollywood version of the story portrays cleopatra and antony as being very much in love but stephanie paints a slightly different picture. I think the theme song for that Relationship could have been what's love got to do with it. They may have been passionate but it was more passion for power than a sexual. Although sexual probably entered into it to cleopatra and antony marriage was primarily about strategy wrong egypt with the two most powerful empires in the world so getting them anybody who got them together and the gotten alliance between them would be unstoppable.
