What The Cherry Blossom Bloom Can Tell Us About Climate Change
"Canopies of pink and white flowers are blanketing washington. Dc right now. After the city's cherry trees hit full bloom last week. Dc's first cherry trees were gift from japan and the city of kyoto. The cherry trees bloomed even earlier. In fact kyoto's peak. Bloom was the earliest on record. For twelve hundred years following pattern of earlier and earlier blooms since the eighteen hundreds when a cherry blossoms can reflect climate change. A pattern of early blooms can indicate warming springtime temperatures. But it's complicated the intellectual. Climate change is indisputable. I think however the decisive factor for the j. blossoms is the winter temperature now. Go obey is a journalist and author of the sacre obsession. She says cherry trees need a full month of cold temperatures in order to properly blossom when it gets warmer. If they don't get the chilly weather for a month then they blossom later because they can't make up trouble so while early blooms caused by warm springs are troubling delayed. Blooms may also be the result of warming winters and the south of japan has already seen delayed blooms in recent years in southern japan. The rinta isn't cold enough for long enough on so the muslims are coming out later as much as by a week as winter. Temperatures continue to rise obey says. The delays may grow to the point. Where trees don't blossom at all. The trees in dc's tidal basin. Are yoshino cherries. That variety also makes up about seventy percent of all the cherry trees in japan. Yoshi knows are easy to propagate they begin blossoming after only five years and they gained popularity in japan in the nineteen th century while other cherry species were forgotten and went extinct.

You're very special wonder woman to me I mean what you did with her was distant. Think. That's a great way to start this interview. Not So. Mirror. That's why we're here. So. How did you kind of kind of get into her space I lucked out because I know brandon the. Who is behind this project and Brandon and I did a COMECON together years ago. And we were all out to dinner with fifteen people out to dinner and we're walking back after dinner and he said you know I'd love to work with you one of these days and I'm like grand. and. Then literally six months later, the phone rang, it was my agent saying, you know you've been offered the role of Mira. In this new aquaman movie and that's how I mean. That's how it happened. It's it's It's just a lovely way to get a job and it doesn't happen very often that happens I mean most of the time you're just. auditioning everybody else in this in the town. Mirror always pushes Arthur curry even in the live action movies as we seen does she do that here? Oh, very much. So yeah, and I was loved that about her because I I was exposed to her justice league and. She's very much dad and what I love about the film to is that there's such a love affair going on between the two of them like you really feel it and. They have their own separate stories in this movie. But they're a unit also, and that's I mean that's what I. Remember about the two of them and that's what I got to play. So that was very that was excited. And she's adorable. She's adorable Lego. I don't know if you know that she. But she's like Oh and that was on my bucket list I wanted to do a lego character. I didn't care what character. So the fact that I got everyone joked that I was a princess announ queen and and it's like if I would have been, you know. The stable girl. Matter to me. I just wanted to Lego. Why is it? We haven't seen more of mirror before well as somebody who voiced wonder woman I'm never surprised that we don't see more of the leading ladies because we just don't and that's and that's fantastic on what's so great about this film also is that we were introduced to Jessica crews and she's So You know terrific in this in this movie and her her. Her character is flawed and funny and Darling, and she's going to be around for a long time. Jessica. Crews and that's going to be great for all the young people watching this movie and listening to this movie they're going to be introduced to this new law fantastic character. So no I'm not surprised but I think it'll change what's it like to do something lighter as appeared to the seriousness of the Justice League wonderful gift total gift I mean I, loved the levy of it. Know? I never got to be that funny and Justice League and all the funny lines penguin flash. And rightfully. So I mean you don't think wonder woman crackup. But with MIRA. And it's not like she's scuttled the funny lines in the movie, but there's so much funny in this movie and have you seen the film Nope Okay Okay so Far Right. So Act one scene. It's so. It's so funny and Bayton. I mean. You'll be on the floor laughing. All right. Not Literally. But if It's so entertaining and everyone doesn't amaze. Christina everyone. Doesn't monies and job Really good. She had only one concern. My biggest concern with this is that didn't sound like wonder woman. That has I just didn't want that for the fans you know what I tried to do a higher. Pitch and I, I did because she's got like a complicated story in this. So then I did a much lower pitch and I don't think I sound like her the fans May, but I don't think I do but I have to grunts in the movie and they're totally Diane. I'm saying it now putting it out to the universe. Fans it was totally Diane I wish because it's so hard for me to do that like who and not sound like Diana She comments on being part of the DC animated universe. The fact that it was, you know it was it just makes you Giddy as an actor that you get to be part of this universe. Everyone says it and it's like Blah Blah but it's so true like we just WanNa work know, and so getting a job as a huge to begin with and then getting a job in this universe, the DC universe which I've been connected to since two thousand. It's It's the gift that keeps on giving and you and you kind of pinch yourself that you get to do this again and again, whatever iteration whatever character again, I would have been the stable and but you're not you get to be clean Mira. It's it's an honor really is. She wanted to deliver as Mira. It's work and it's. I don't think it's easier. Because MUIRA has fan base rightfully so and she's extraordinary. So you want to deliver for the I. Mean I'm always thinking of the fans like I want to deliver something fans appreciate in like and can relate to. and. So yeah, I mean every job is kind of scary how about playing a villain. In the DC universe I love being a heroin you know it's like with injustice the game. Diana's. Data's and. People have asked me about that like how was it? I prefer if I have my way and no, one's giving me my you know, no one's asking how do you WanNa player seals what I love planners heroin I love the fact that she screwed and that she does the right thing and that she's kind compassionate empathic. So I'd rather play that character now most people will say they looked to play the villain because it's gritty and it's it's you know naughty. But and that's all true. But in the DC universe out, take the heroes I like the heroes. Any. Other heroin she'd like to play you know what if I could play more Diana. Rest of my career I would be happy. Medium you know what? That's like when you've been given the best. But mural was up there I mean MIRA would definitely be somebody I would've loved to would love to play and I got to players. So check check. And a Lego. Ask. Mission Accomplished. You can catch Susan Eisenberg Voicing Mirror. On DC lego rage of Atlantis definitely worth it. One of those great lego movie for the cave this is Tony Gelato. Thanks.
"dc" Discussed on The Cave - A DC Universe Podcast
"You're listening to Sifi talk with Tony. Collado is joy a milestone occurred when DC? Animation celebrated their tenth anniversary after making over thirty movies. Amazing in this special here from some of those who contributed taped near Comic Con. Bruce W TIM is an animation. Legend although he doesn't consider himself that he's just a man that believes in these characters and has worked very hard to tell those stories that we as fans wanted to see. I think it's constantly. There's always going to be a mix of both original stories and adaptations. We're constantly looking at things. If pre existence the at what are the fans what they they really WanNa see. We're the ones that are constantly in our exit polls that that people are constantly saying yeah. We want you to do this one but at the same time. Sit Down at the same time. We're costly talking amongst ourselves and say Oh yeah you know what we haven't done yet are? Here's a character that we haven't really focused on yet that we could do in terms of a justice. League movie are Batman Movie. Or you know whatever I think. There's going to be a mix of both original stories and adaptations. What about like alternate stories like Todd's monster that we well in terms of alternate universe type stuff The only thing that I can confirm it's already been announced as Batman. Gotham by gaslight which is the original else world story. I think a lot depends on how that one does sales wise Honestly Gods and monsters did. Okay wasn't great. So nobody's banging down the door to see gods and monsters to I. I've got a LOT OF INTERESTING FANS. Fancied really like it but not with their checkbook. They didn't but Gaza monsters is is really exciting for us to to be able to do different genre to do a more of a horror movie slash slash period. Piece thing yeah it was it was it was It was it was a lot of fun to try different shades. You know give us Batman but different shades of Batman so so hopefully they might be something along those lines again. Vote with your with your paycheck. With your with your. You know your one click button. Alan Burnett was involved with Batman. The animated series as a producer and was even killed by the joker one of the early episodes. He talks about the stories of the animated movies he enjoyed in that universe. Why really liked was different reasons? Small Movie Small Personal Story. It was under the foot and and it was just very beautifully told when I saw at comic on the larger screens I was I. Was you know you're looking at television screen? And you just don't. Sometimes you're you're you're you're making and when I saw on the big screen I actually. They had a second shot and I actually just stay in my seat and watch it again with less. People just wanted to see it again because it was a Beaut- beautiful director. That's so but I like them all to various degrees. I think they're all. I think it's amazing package. I mean I can't believe that done thirty and they're you know there's more pipeline nine other half dozen talk some involvement with five retired. So they'RE IN OTHER PEOPLE'S HANDS. It's great and for me. It was doubly great because I've worked on a lot of series. At-work DOWN Fifteen series. Some of them were eighty five episodes. Some of them were miniseries but I did not beat that grind anymore so When this came along it was an you're dealing and you're dealing with different every couple of months it's great and new characters just it was it. Was God something It's hard to believe I was on nearly ten years by was he's probably asked this question many times. But what character would you like to see featured that hasn't been so far? There's a lot that don't get enough respect that the dead man swamping But the one that we the one that we have not featured in any of that I would like to see done do perjury and So maybe someday Bruce had been working on animated series really since the Nineteen Ninety S. He wanted to take a step back from producing a bit. So James Tucker came in diversified help increase the attention to the DC animated movies but Justice League dark. Yeah that was a good game and get Matt Ryan to do. It was even more awesome. Yeah he's Great. Well a movie did well so the chances are high will do another one. And he's doing a seed w thing now. So he's he loves being. Constantine so he recounts some of the highlights of the animated films so far for him hard. Because I've done in continuity titles and of those probably I love justly dark but I think Judas contract was the harder nut to crack. Because that's something fans have wanted for a long time and it was hard. It was a difficult story to break and I think we did. We did justice to it. So you know Other than that. My other favorite one flashpoint was the first one they really but Assault on Arkham was probably a bigger surprise for me and I think I had more fun watching that with an audience just because it was you know we were following up a video game and I think that's really a lot of fun and it's pretty dirty and and tawdry so the continuity titles her what I consider a fan favorite. He talks about how they got started the continuity titles Basically were tasked around the time new fifty two. The comments were doing new fifty two. When I got the GIG I'm jumping back. But when I got the gig versus doing green lantern the series and I just thought I'd be stepping in and and keep you know doing the non con- you know. There was no continuity at the time we had a whole other script ready to go. Flashpoint was one of them and Unbound I did those two and then there was another script. We hadn't production and then our bosses from home video and animation came and said you know. Let's stop that we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA start a new universe. Basically that was a Monday and by Friday we had carried. It was that fast and so we had to use the new fifty two that was set up as a starting point but that was never the intention was never did. Just keep doing that to me. I used it as a way to have continuity around stories that needed some setup like Judas contract there were plans to do that as an isolated standalone. But there's no way to really you'd almost have to do a titans before that for me. The continuity titles have been great. Because there's way we've been using it as ways to introduce these let not lesser known characters but characters who may not have an easy green light with the home-video people you know we did justice league versus Teen Titans as a way to say. Here's the Justice League we'RE GONNA put teen titans with them as long as we had just again it. Everyone who is fine with teen titans and that did really well. Now they're like. Why don't you do a teen titans movie? Well I've been wanting to for years so but basically the approaches to build on each movie and to you know. Now we're at a place where we've done so many of them that you know we have a movie coming up where care. It's like the Marvel Universe where now iron man can show up in somebody else's movie and it's no one's going. Oh Wow this iron man. It's like Oh Yeah Iron. Man's there so that's what we're trying to achieve with the in continuity titles where people can cross over each other's movies we can introduce new characters and then spend the mall in an upcoming movie. I'm really looking forward to the death of Superman comments on. That's another one where because we have a continuity set up you know. We have a superman that we watched in a few movies We're able to bring characters that may not have made sense in a standalone movie I mean roosted doomsday the first one and it was just really impossible to say. Oh Hey here's steel. Oh Hey here's a radical leader whereas we have a framework now where we can introduce characters and there's some context All I can say about as we're trying to stay true to the to the feel of those stories even though even two movies doesn't cover the whole saga of the death and return of Superman.
