Thousands In Texas Still Don't Have Power As Lawmakers Investigate ERCOT
"Last week's mass power failure continues, and so does the political fall out. Have been resignations from the body that oversees the grid and lawmakers open their investigations tomorrow. Joining us now is Dominic Anthony Walsh of Texas. Public Radio. Hi there. Hi. First. How's the recovery going? How are people doing? So the majority of the state does have power and water back. But there are still thousands of residents, especially in the Texas Hill country, for example, who don't have power and their electric provider isn't sure when the power will be back. So for thousands of people of this crisis has stretched on for more than a week. And you know bodies are still being found. Local officials are saying it will be weeks till we know the full number of people who died in this disaster, but it's already in the dozens and is expected to climb to well over 100. And these are people who couldn't power medical equipment people who froze to death in their homes or in their cars, as well as people without housing, who froze to death outdoors, experiencing the worst of the conditions. Wow. So in the face of that staggering death toll, the hearings begin tomorrow and the actions of ERCOT, the body that manages the Texas grid are likely to be front and center. What do you expect to come up? Is gonna be a lot. But one key question. Why wasn't the power grid ready? But ERCOT, which again is at the center of all this doesn't actually own the physical infrastructure that provides power. Rather Okay, just oversees the flow of electricity. Here's Peter Crampton, now former member of their cots board. He spoke at his final board meeting earlier today. Cutlets flying a 7 47. It had not one but two engines experience catastrophic failure. And flew the damage playing for 103 hours before safely landing in the Hudson. In my mind the men and women in their car control room here out. So in this analogy, those engines that blew up could be power generating units owned by public and private power companies, not ERCOT again. Haircuts rule was to do an emergency landing. That's the order of so called Syria's of controlled blackouts. So that and even worse crash when it happened like the entire grid going off line, which, according to Urquhart, could take a weeks or months to repair. So far, Kat is likely to argue that they were just doing the best they could with a bad situation. Are there other places Lawmakers might look to hold people accountable. Absolutely. First, there is the Public Utility Commission of Texas. It oversees our cod and has a three member board appointed by Governor Greg Abbott. Second, there's the railroad Commission, which actually oversees the natural gas sector, not railroads and the natural gas sector failed to provide enough power during this crisis. Those two agencies, the Public Utility Commission and the railroad Commission have regulatory power. ERCOT does not. And of course, there is the state Legislature itself, which actually makes the laws that these agencies are supposed to enforce. One proposal mandate that all plants whether as against cold weather, and there's a debate around that who pays for the weatherization taxpayers or the company's And finally, people are already resigning. Tell us about why So Peter, cramped in who we heard earlier, along with a few other board members resigned after taking heat that because they didn't live in the state now did them living out of the state caused these blackouts. No, but Governor Greg Abbott was quick to welcome The news. In the short term market officials will face hearing from the state Legislature tomorrow, and there will be tough questions for them. But again, Ultimately there are other bodies that hold most of the power is actually mandate changes after all of this.
Why New York’s Snowstorms Are Growing—Along With Warming Winter Temperatures
"WN Y sees, Lydia McMullen layered explains. Both things are a consequence of climate change. Winters just aren't as cold as they used to be.

Who won majors in two thousand twenty in this crazy year. We have good farewell to the bryan brothers. We lamented strangeness of this rotation around the sun we have looked forward to twenty twenty one. So let's just kind of do it all out rap. Jamie how are you. How goes in your parts. Are you dusted with snow. As we are here in new york it is a little bit more than a dusting here but We are warm inside staring. It's still coming down but we are. We are all good here. I can always tell the rhythm of tennessee's in based on knows a press releases. I'm sent in when there are no tournaments On the calendar when they're no match is being played They tend to get to increasingly distant for tennis itself. It's been a while since. I've gotten a press release about An actual tournament result or a match result. So let's let's just kind of take final inventory of twenty twenty one twenty two twenty then spinning forward to Twenty twenty one. Are there any any sort of enduring memory. You're doing capsule late straight year in in in one image. What would it be in one image. That is hard. I would say if that was the case in an empty an empty stadium. An empty arena. But i think i think for me you did this a little bit in your mouth but i kind of have to agree with you that feel like all in all a twenty twenty was terrible of course across the board but for china's i do think that sport distinguish itself in many ways in. I think that for a lot of the players that you know we have been talking about for years now It was really nice to see a lot of those players breakthrough in different ways. I think of course dominic. Thiem you know had finally won his first major and you know he had a really strong year across the board You know twenty seven years old finally gets to his high ranking. Gets that major. And you know it's all done at that first ornament back first major nine only osaka of course who not only is her major haul here but then she found her voice and you know use it and use it well and i think You know we can talk a little bit more about her but you have severe kenan against him. Thank someone who we talked about. Who is young and she. You know kind of proved again that she is here and you know she's twenty twenty two years old but her first major win was not a fluke and the list goes on. I think again. These are players that we've been talking about and it was good to see them all breakthrough re cement themselves and kind of redefine their careers This year in twenty twenty such important year for everyone. I can give you my My off-court analog to that I think we're all waiting to see which of these changes are stopgap in that means in life and not just a tennis We which of these are going to be a new way of life so our zoom good replace office and are we all going to be enjoying outdoor dining going forward and how much of this is just Emergency measure it. How much this heart and into our new reality. And i think at tennis we have the same thing that we haven't had a lot of match results I'm glad you hit on the ones we did. And i did have some really good tennis but i think a lot of the discussion has been about. How do we broadcast sport. How do we travel the australian open falsifying dough high then charter private planes for everyone to then quarantine them austrailia. And we have events moving. And we've experimented with different formats for tennis and i think if any good has come out of this year it has been that tennis has finally decided to innovate to cooperate. It's not always been perfect. But i think there's a real sort of spirit of enterprise it hasn't always been around the sport in some of this was the society Some of this was just trying to salvage events and put some some money in player's pockets. But i do really hope that. This spirit of enterprise. We can do things a little bit different than we break some models. We can defy conventional wisdom. We can try and shift dates around if miami has to be played for one year in the middle east so be it and if indian wells gets moved to october and everybody stops in the desert on their way to from china so be it. I hope that this is one of the legacy of this. This unhappy year is that tennis has a lot more liability and is a lot. More nibble has the job of its flexibility on the court. It can do the splits. And i do think that if any good comes out of this year apart from what you say that the emergence of team was great. And i always talk then. Profes- mitch there was. There was really howard moments on court. But i do think to me one of the great sort of i hope. Enduring legacies of this horrible year is a tennis has proven that it's a lot more nimble than than perhaps we thought. Perhaps it bought So i guess we'll sort of you know against a lot of we can use that to transition to twenty twenty one. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the schedule about rankings about where the tokyo olympics factor into the this year. That's already growing complicated but I do think there was a real spirit of cooperation in our ingenuity video of enterprise. Haven't always seen in tennis

"The Mirror has found that cummings traveled two hundred and sixty miles to be relatives so his family had child cast pool nearby as they sell ice. Native Corona virus at this in some quarters cummings to consider his position to resign and I did. He's breeching government guidance. However I am Nye joined by Two spectator writers. A different views on this at. Its Massey The spectator Scotland editor. Emily mcdonagh at you've rights on coffee. Has That ultra need donate? Cummings needs to go. What's your reasoning for this? I think I'd start from the position that one can have considerable sympathy with predicament. In which Dominic Cummings and his family find himself and his wife was ill with the virus. You have a young child. It's perfectly natural in a normal. I suppose to to look to to family for assistance in such times. But and there is about here. There is a significant difference when you are the Prime Minister's principal adviser you cannot behave in the way other people might. You must resist that kind of thing. It beggars belief as well but there was nobody in London for help. And you can't have senior people in the government breaking the lockdown restrictions. They are imposing on. Everyone else becomes as simple as that. Unfortunately the lockdown was sold as a great national collective endeavor and it was accepted by the public on that basis. To and again you know that just further reinforces the point that you cannot have one set of regulations one set of guidance for the general public and then a rather different draw the looser set regulations and guidance for politicians special advisers and other people at the heart of government. It just isn't on the public understand that. I think the the strength of the look on people's adherence to it is only as strong as as a collective acceptance of it. And once you start. Chipping away at that collective acceptance then. The whole thing begins to collapse. I think is position is now I'm sustainable. And I'm mystified by the Cabinet's decision to defend them this afternoon. Melanie oostrum and there has been precedence. A Foreign Thames of Corona virus and government advises. We've had two resignation so fall one in Scotland Catherine cowdery and the then the chief medical officer. He was found to go to his second home more recently. Neil Saxon the scientific advisor attack that he had a visitor to his residents an outside of his household in both cases. They've designed pretty swiftly but yet this isn't happening here so why is different because the rationale was completely different? Neil Ferguson was in his girlfriend and and Casado would was going to agreeable second home and five bit of Sierra and Dominic Cummings and his wife. And we're going to their family because they were afraid that both of them would fall victim to the virus and it turned out to be exactly what happened and they had to have a backup plan so that the boy would be looked after. This isn't a kind of hypocrisy. This is an additional interpretation of the rules. Which would be good for anybody. Any citizen would have been entitled in those circumstances when the Hatchet. Oh boy and there were fearful that both of them would actually be to look after them to go and seek out their family even Dharam so the term somebody would be there for the child if they were incapacitated Turned out to be perfectly satisfied because it was initially a merry who fell and subsequently it was dominic who was much lower. And so there's fear. Were in a sense vindicated that we McCain's for anybody. If you've got no backup London then families who turn to and I don't think it's it's one roof dominate in another room for the rest of us. I think that anybody could have argued the motley for the same principle to be applied and annex. If you mentioned the ministers of some been rushing a bit slower to take to social media to defend Dominic Cummings today but I'll say in the press conference today. We had a moon neutral figure in at the deputy medical officer. Jenny Harry's talking about special exceptional circumstances where potential closes to the guidance. They sat out and some of looked at those comments stand suggested that she was saying that safeguarding and child as happened in. This case is something which would be allowed under the guidance. Well I mean there was some suggestion that but she also seemed to me onto to suggest that actually this was not the sort of behavior that medical authorities public health authorities would really look terribly cleanly on but again the point is is is much more straightforward one. Not So is there any number of people who could claim to be in exceptional circumstances during this crisis during this emergency and yet you know. Millions of people have have gone out the way to obey the guidance to follow the guidance to accept the lockdown diamond the restrictions. That come with it so you have weddings postponed funerals. Going unattended. Families separated for weeks months at a time with no end in sight but You know in some ways and you know a lot of those people I think will be. We'll be looking at this story and they will but how come. It wasn't how come cummings was able to evade the guidance. If you like just do his own thing we you know what made him so so exceptional in ways that I am not exceptional and I think that the people will will times as it very definite sense of of of double standards. And I'm not sure that they would be mistaken state budget and Melanie that charge from Labor Day that calling for an edge inquire into this is ultimately the action suggest is one route for a certain portion of society privileged one and a different role for everyone else so doesn't addicts have a point in a way. This undermines the government's message going forward it because it is new suggesting that they're all loopholes things that people didn't realize where the case people might get lax. Well I think that Tim the addicts makes point. Everybody's had to put up with enormous. Privations I mean not being able to go to a parents. Funeral just heartbreaking but some the had dominic being. I'm going to his parents home to visit his parents. Had He liked him? Custom Calderwood in going to them for a nice bit of country rather than to be cooped up in London than the. The indignation would have been absolutely justified right behind those calling resignation. He was going to save. Cards has at the boy. The rule is designed for purpose is to save cards the vulnerable as well as the safety and and if you've got two parents who are incapacitated you've got no media. How many in London? Which I understand is the case there. Then family is who you call on the in these circumstances in order to look after a child and a forty or challenge is vulnerable and expe- expected to sort of fend for themselves. Even though this does seem to have been preacher naturally self-possessed go around handing rubber to the stricken them stricken parents. In those circumstances. It would be irresponsible not to go to the to the family farm where they can selfies late without seeing the parents without even seeing the sister who was the option and self allies meeting in a separate building and not actually seeing family. I think that was the responsible thing to do. And in fact if I somebody had said to me that the options you can either drive to Dharam or else hand your child which social services misselling turned. I would have out my wake up. I would have traveled anywhere else. Travel Handover Michelle twisting social services. And they didn't watch your acquaintance tonight. But I can't think of many of my friends who I could handle spoiled child to say What would you mind having him for the duration? I don't know how it's going to be. It could be a fortnight and and the matter would be another thing altogether. I think can the child's interest comes first even before the interests of Dominic Cummings. The politician annexed does have a point there in the sense that is not as dominant coming up. Dharam to have a good time. It was only acting. It was whether or not you set ingredient. That was you know. He couldn't cool his friends and did it. It was driven by taste. Gt Role in the sense of. We're GONNA have a best time here. Sure I mean I think people can can accept that and again as I say people can sympathize with predicament in which He and his family find himself. That doesn't change perception and the reality of this switches. The he behaved in ways that run directly contrary to to the way the government is advising everybody else to behave and it does strike me as being somewhat perplexing that if you have members of your family who have the virus and few suspect that you are shortly to likely to have it as well but it's strikes me as being very strange that you would then willingly joined two hundred and fifty miles and put yourself in the general vicinity of your elderly parents. Who are of this. They were group themselves It strikes me as being if not irresponsible than certainly potentially reckless. The numbers headline is is. It was it was a younger member of the family. Incentives on the t niece okay but the number ten line is is is also darn police didn't have a word with the maturity something directly contradicted by police. I'm not sure how much credence or credibility wants to give to number ten line on this aspect of things right now because it seems to be the they are now engaged in what they seem to see to be political fight for coming a survival and that they have privileged his survival. Over the clarity of the government's messaging will of other areas and it strikes me that that too is a reckless thing to do the responsible thing to do and and certainly a confusing and perplexing thing to do but perhaps there is some grand plan at the heart untold. But it doesn't seem like that I'm say well beside the sort of grand plan talking about this in Strategic Thomason in terms of unpopular popular perception. What's actually at stake is the well being of small child if you don't have immediate family in London if you don't believe live in nanny econ actually some in landing in these circumstances because of the restrictions on movement the only viable option as as a short of your ovaries raising to his nineteen council whilst to go up and stay was one set of parents or the other and she was new near his parents by all accounts they stay in a separate building and with west of the world's virus cuddle penetrates from sort of bunker building in the Pharma states and into the main house. He was not endangering his parents. He wasn't even endangering the sister who just left basket of food at the door. He wasn't putting anybody in harm's way the only small twinge of these. I felt to ascended to land that he was traveling. Two hundred fifty miles. When he wasn't feeling the best and zoomed a he was kind of already about driving do Karen intention. But that's the sole aspect of the whole saying you will strike was being remote to problematic. You have to put the interest of child. I in fact if you don't put the interest of the child frosts you're a really weird and horrible parent Melanie just just around. I mean there was a YouGov poll at today which suggests that of those surveyed fifty two percent think not only has dominic. Cummings done something wrong here and broke the rules. They think he should resign. So do you think public opinion? They're misinformed as I said the outset. This isn't a matter of dominate coming somehow. Bending the rules the slogan Stay Home Save. Lives is precisely that it was a slogan the actual law allows for nuance in order to protect vulnerable individuals and as a put chapman short of being a very elderly person. There's nobody more vulnerable than a small four year old and addicts. It's is you do not share that view I wanted. I mean you talk about how he can no longer stay in his position. But do you think I mean we have had today from Dominic Cummings? He's been used up. He's hitting apologizing is no plans to give us notice but do you think he to accept that there was a blurring who will be more punish ethic his language. But that be enough for you to suggest you know there was a change in stance from the government. He continue. Well I mean. I think it's probably too late for that now. Who would clearly have been the sensible thing to the sensible approach to have taken? But you know you know. There are plenty of senior conservatives. Who are looking at this tonight. And so on and saying despite what cabinet ministers have been tweeting this afternoon and tons of you know supporting the government's official position. There are plenty of senior Tories. Who are deeply concerned by? You'd think the Best they lamentable. Own-goal in terms of the government's Credibility and that is now what is at stake. There is a genuine risk. It seems to me that the government becomes something of a laughing stock as a result of this of this. This moment on the government's authority in this in this emergency is is moral much more than is legal and this whole story. It seems to me Risks doing great damage to that moral credibility that moral authority and that actually is the real difficulty. I think for the government. Thank you addicts. Thank you many and thank you for listening.

"A rare form of blood cancer. The diagnosis kept the veteran liberal politician off the campaign trail last fall though he easily won reelection in his New Brunswick Riding Dominic Leblanc was recently returned to the House of Commons for the has recently returned rather for the first time since his diagnosis assist. Last week I sat down with him in his office on Parliament Hill. How are you? I'm well thank you. Yes in good spirits. Yeah I feel great I guess yes. Let's start when you were diagnosed. It was last spring. What what went through your head? That point one of the things that was unusual it was a very rare form of non Hodgkin's lymphoma which is a fairly frequent or a reasonably calm type of blood cancer. I think but the particular kind I had There have been around five hundred people in the world who've been diagnosed with the since the one thousand nine hundred their doctors in New Brunswick and never seen one case the the doctors at the large oncology centre maze of Halls Mowing Montreal where I had further treatments had seen maybe ten cases in the last twenty years. Same thing for Princess Kansas Margaret in Toronto. So getting the diagnosis was key to finding chemotherapy treatments. That was going to hopefully put it into remission and make eligible for for the bone marrow transplant. Where what point did you say she's like? I don't think I can keep working. It was probably. I talked to the prime minister about this in February and March once. We got the diagnosis and the doctors were looking at treatment options. It became clear that I couldn't do a treatment on Thursday Friday and come to work on Monday so I remember calling during the Prime Minister I think the beginning of April so he was very very very generous. wrote the whole thing. He is one of your closest friends though. Yeah also my boss Austin is also. The prime minister has a responsibility to have a functioning government And he can't be in a position where somebody has cabinet responsibilities and they're being neglected or not prosecuted in in the right way so he looked after that part of it and then would check in with me as a friend would. How are you doing anything I can do new? Jesus be fun if you could join the cabinet meeting this week by phone. He was very encouraging including the time. I was hospitalized in Montreal. He came to visit me he was. It's very very attentive. It was quite moving. How difficult was that for you because I how would you describe yourself before that diagnosis? Like what kind of politician we're you. I have some choice words. I'm more interested in your ordinary. Asti outgoing very friendly very very keen on your job. I would say Very engaged will you rosemary. I love my job. I worked hard to get the job. I waited fifteen years to have a chance to serve in the cabinet Every month every week. You're lucky enough to have a job like I have. You always have the sense. You're borrowing the chair person coming after actually believe that. And sometimes I sit in House of Commons. It look around or sit in the cabinet room and you're struck by. How temporary is the chance you have to do that job? So when you're forced to take six months eight months basically disappear through the floorboards. It was tough and we had an election coming up. and You wonder if you're going to win so you go through those difficult medical treatments encouraged by your boss saying Geez. You know when you're back and I'm looking forward to it. So it motivated you just to plow through it and come out the other end. The reason I wanted to talk to you about this is because there's something that I really don't understand about public service and people that are committed to public service. I think I would have said okay. Well I have this. I'm not going to run in the next election. This is my wakeup call. I'M GONNA devote more time to myself. I've given enough of my life to to my country and I was just wondering. Did that ever occur to you. Did it did. And in fact I remember one discussion one night in a hospital room in Moncton with Dr Finn who was the treating hematologist and he basically said you know you can forget about the idea of campaigning in the fall. So then I I thought to myself after he left well does that mean that I can still be a candidate because you can still be a candidate even for medical reasons. You can't campaign pain in the traditional sense of being that every activity and every large gathering to be honest Rosemary. I never contemplated not running again. I had had been renominated candidate in my constituency. I thought the government was going to be reelected and I don't think I'm finished doing what I want to do. As a member of parliament under a cabinet minister I think one has these jobs in perpetuity. As I said a minute ago but I wasn't going to let a difficult medical situation cut off something that I loved doing thing. I thought I was making in all jokes aside a positive contribution but do you recognize that as something that is unusual that other people on the hill may have that feeling but did it's unusual to that committed. I'm not sure it's committed is the kind word uh-huh I I'm. I was fifty one years old last year so I didn't think I was finished working. Yeah so if I didn't run again or if I was unsuccessful I would find another job and the other thing that hits you and I've talked to other patients that one meets in these chemotherapy treatment rooms and at various his points along the cycle. You meet all kinds of fascinating people. So I'm frankly who weren't as lucky as Iowa's everybody wants to go back to their normal life so when you're sitting in that chemotherapy chair or when you're in an isolation room at the hospital you want to get back to your normal life. And what does that mean. That means spending time with your family obviously doing do things with my wife. Why a door but it also includes work the people you work with the light? It's a normal life again. Yeah so jettisoning your job. Bob didn't feel like the way to sort of maintain or return to a normal routine. All these jobs are more demanding a lot of jobs in terms of travel and time and well you know what I I've always. I never accepted that argument to me on us. long-distance truck drivers are away to a lot of people in New Brunswick went still go out to work in Labrador Obrador Northern Quebecer in the oil patch. Alberta they're away from their families. I get to go back as often as I want is I can. I always thought there's something you ask the voters to give you a job. It's not sincere to complain about how hard it is or autumn ounce away. I've been very serene about I'm desperately desperately fortunate to have I've had the job and I adored everyday of it so i. I've never thought that way so you went into isolation before the rich draw I left New Brunswick on Labor Day weekend. Joanne and I drove to Montreal. We wanted to have a car there. I went into hospital the days after Labor Day weekend again and I left at the beginning of November the hospital so I was there fifty six nights and was a painful experience being in the the ice. Elation Room did what you were going through. Physically medically a the transplant itself stem cell transplant is absolutely painless. I got at five hundred and seventy million stem cells from an unrelated donor. Who doesn't live in Canada? who was a tentative ten perfect genetic match with me and the the same blood type and the younger male so I had a perfect donor? Somebody I don't know who he is and he doesn't Hawaii. I am apparently after a year. They'll tell you so. The transplant itself is payments. And you're so excited to get it because it constitutes a cure if it works it secure the hardest thing you've done you think or yeah. I found looking after my father. In the last years of his life he had fairly severe dementia and was at home and I was the primary caregiver who was trying to organize organizes homecare. I found that difficult. But this time you're forced to contemplate your own mortality at fifty one years old when you're isolated like that you said you had a visitor at time. The prime minister came by. Your wife is obviously there but what is it was kind of fun with. The prime minister came in security. Had to stay out. There seemed to be a lot of activity in the hall. I ah but he he came in and we spent an hour and a half we had. It was one of the nicest moments of that period. That was that part the difficult because you're such a social a person that you were cut off from people. I wonder was that you're so sick from the chemotherapy that seeing people actually becomes a big bird right sometimes. You're learning too tired to read your ipad. Look at your IPAD. Yeah I mean some nights I was too tired. Imagine to stay up and watch the CBC national. Oh my God I know there are no other. That's how bad it was when you showed up for the cabinet swearing in and you were completely bald. The time that's not true or a little town we I had a tiny on TV. Nobody was there. I was Kinda proud mask I think to yes. The doctors told me I asked the doctors. If I could go to some event at Reid Hall so I probably broke the confidence of the cabinets wearing and they laughed and they said Yeah. But don't go to the reception afterwards. Don't shake everybody's hand us a lot of pure L. and wear a mask Which I did because I had literally been out of the hospital for two weeks but the mask was the awkward part? I certainly got text messages and emails from our friends. Teasing uh-huh how toasts and bed did you ever think I I'm not sure this is GONNA work out. We positive reelection or the medical the medical stuff. I never doubted the election Of course I felt very lucky. At what's the chance you find a ten out of ten genetic match donor in another country with the same blood type and he said you could to find out. Do you plan to find out. I year I was told assuming this person agrees I can communicate. I can send a letter through the hospital. where he you would have donated his stem cells? And they'll give him the letter and I would think he's GonNa get very nice Christmas present. I hope he likes champagne. I hope he likes cigars. The doctors weren't to you you you when you go through these kinds of things and you're thinking about different things and your life life. I imagine it changed you in some way. Other than that. The new HAIRDO and slim's it probably does a I. I used to think it sounded corny. But when you go through it you see it yourself. You realize a whole bunch of things that used to aggravate you or frustrate aren't really that important. It really does make you realize that time you spend with your family is. My Wife. Took a leave from her job and lived in Montreal and spent ten hours a day at the hospital. That's remarkable to honor that unbelievable generosity. Okay you want to be able to spend time with people on things that matter so it sort of allows you to hit delete on a whole bunch of stuff and and not feel guilty about it and come back to a job where you feel like you're doing something bigger than just what you would do for yourself. I guess it makes you motivated. Automated to want to make a real contribution to the country or to my constituency. Because that's an opportunity. Not many Canadians have. And I've been given that opportunity so you don't want to waste east any day of it but it also brings you back to the job with perhaps a better balance. Yes you don't necessarily have to travel every single break week. Wake you don't have to fill up every weekend with activities that the other part of the country so I'll use this period. Frankly I'm hoping to go snowmobiling next weekend. In New Brunswick my wife said we should do more winter sports so I bought a big Skidoo. I don't think that's what she meant by that. Sounds like fun I I love it so I'm and I'll spend more time on this winter. We just need more snow yes. I'm glad you're doing well thanks Rosemary. Thank you for making it. Thank you very much.

I'm really into it now. At first it's only at lake a great way situation into war but I'm I'm I'm a hundred percent. I think this is exciting because I mean you see another podcast and I have a feeling. Well I know it's going to be Lord of the rings oriented but right now we'll be the foundation with thing. Why don't you talk about because we we're going to do the first episode after this? You'RE GONNA record it here in my house. Oh yes we're warmed up we're ready that's a good thing you really. Yeah yeah so it will be the. We'll definitely come back to lauder rings because that was an intense four years where we first met and we have managed stories never been told them here and ED. So I'm sure as we talk as dom says you know there were formative in our relationship and things that we still think no so. I knew that will always come back to Lord of the Rings and our team in New Zealand but we'll also look at other things will will go deep and is something as we did today. Feel like it will it will It will find so in shape do you think. Do you have a name already discussed name. We might talk about that on the podcast but the work in Thailand.

That was not my idea that came from our dear dear friend. Nigel who you met during loader I I said to billy probably a year ago now on something like a roundabout last time I said we should do podcast and it took a little a while when I did. That is a great one times on and I was like no we have to record it. Well what stations on Nana Station Station talking to my dad. Yeah not real. podcast I listen to you. Go into your podcast avenue for that. I don't listen to focus. I was like well. You start listening to some and he's I don't understand. When would ellison two in the house? I'm not realistic.

You know whether as the podcast or eh becomes something I don't know but I do think we have lost some and there's been people along the way good producers. UC Smart people who've tried to make it happen and for whatever reason hasn't and I think there's something there you know And it'd be shame if one of his died before it I'll I'll be shamed for Ryan I.

"I'm specifically talking about big those good. That is perspective. Yeah just to speak to speak on billy's behalf if a could for a minute. Thank you as beautiful. I I think billy do love growing up a little faster than most people needed to. When I was billy's age when he sadly lost his parents parents I was still run around school and doing plays and having fun and eating lollipops and all that kind of stuff so billy at to grow quicker than certainly I did I think because of that rush billy worked out things the I worked out a little later? Like a Sarai. Everything's fine like get happy. Do things that make you smile. Be Grateful so I've watched billy. I mean billy's to be older than me but in terms of his look at tiny I mean not that you know. He doesn't so he looks young young. He does what he was the Pan of the habits. I mean a large looks amazingly young. Sean Astin looks young young but everyone would go on about billy's age. You are joking. You sixty four sixty back then. He's only billy just got there a little quicker so billionaire friends and peers. And we've helped each other out over the years but there's been times where I've been struggling with something and billy got their eight ten years ago. There was a time we won't on Abbot Kinney any one time I was seeing a girl I was Kinda half in half out I was like yeah I like about sure I turn onto billy. We were leaving at this point. He was going back to his wife and son. I was walking to my car. I I said Billy showing that Across Kenya which was completely inappropriate. Billy how do you how are you okay with the fact that you know. It's just you allie. Now for the rest of your life is other girls to kiss or other girls to look at and Billy said Bahia now right now like this is my situation now I love it. I'm here now. He was yelling that across the street. Be He's here now from fifteen feet away and I got an economy profound and simple. Yeah totally dude. He now off. What are you going to kiss bill?

Maybe you guys will come back but I seriously doubt. Here's do you. Yeah Yeah No. It's really yeah. Oh Yeah I have to. I think you really fun. How thanks man on? You Dome was fun thank you. Don't get new idea who that guy and I'm sorry it's right you know. I just the Ryan's amazing and he's funny actually. Don't put him on the spot to be Funny Ryan you know. These alison outrank. We've seen the Lord of the Rings Right. Yeah of course my God yeah. Do you know a lot about it. Read the books and did not read the books. Now get out run. They're good books. I I don't know there's a lot of books and this room. Yeah is the rings is any. I'm not a big reader. I don't think people look at me and like oh he's an intellectual but I do like history so I read the John Adams book I read I read. Let's not bore people now. Okay is is that the Summer of sixty nine. That's Brian. John Adams the second president of the United States so also a lawyer who defended the British oop. You just said Kind of so much. I WanNa talk to you about but I wanna get into something. That's important really quick. Make these quick You ruin the room. You're at the bar. When and a girl smack dom full handed on the face correct? You were there island Thailand more than once. Oh no buried either one so so this girl woman came up to you and you didn't do anything wrong right now. For my recollection mean billy might be able to tell a different story for my recollection grin. Thailand we had walked through to about onto the beach where there were beach tables associated with the bar and we will have amendment is now we were just having a really. It was just been ice station. Lovely conversations go Biz kind of fun. I was into it with my best Mai in Thailand. We really have a good time and this girl drunk came over and just said can I sit here and I can. Yeah you can sit there but I was in no way interested in starting a conversation right right. We ignored it for a good thirty seconds. And then she said something along the lines of ammo boring view all or should I be here and I said something like yeah kind of told him and the next thing I knew she smacked me in the face. That hurt yeah. Yeah did you guys move or get up states. We stayed still. Did you laugh. Did you know it looked painful. Wasn't a laughing slap. It was he's like. Oh here's mark on your face tears in my eyes. Not because I was upset because Russell Moore's and nothing happened. She just got up walked away. Continue to conversation Asian. Yeah which I think is the right way to deal with it right. She had so little effect on me after she hit me. I just continue to ignore I. It seems like I would have done something like this. Yes let's say I was talking to billy and all of a sudden. Oh my gosh why would you do. Yeah Dude I have and then he gets put yourself in the moment there still the fuck what did I do. I'm talking my friend. Yeah good thing I sell all those things when I say it now I can connected. It did with bill as soon as it happened and billy looked at me with the space which I know the billy nearly enough to talk which is like that just happened. He kind of went and also also. Because you like you're you're a tough guy dom like you. I don't know thanks people look at you and you don't know that you'd be tough if they don't know you you wouldn't want to borrow. Oh I wouldn't fight that guy but you're Kinda and the guy that's like if you mess with me you know I'm not afraid of you and it'll be a little bit. I've played around with my life so I think I definitely have that. I don't know about a boss situation. Yeah I mean if a bigger guys message stupid I'M GONNA leave right but I'm not I'm this is one of the fundamental differences in billion I. I've learned a lot through watching bill. Is I get off on and I'm energized by confrontation and billy over the years. Intended to be like. That's not my jam. I don't well He. He's scared some after sphere. He'll look into and yeah. I don't like fear. No he said to me last last year era as a bag is a bag shark week thing happening and the vast I mean Tom do we wanna go in swim with greet ways. I was like no and he's like but why wouldn't you. I mean Johnson and I was like I don't yeah I don't want to swim. I've seen yours. I mean you know I mean that's a reader and that can get domes windows lake. I was like well. We'd be in. I cage you know. Just be swimming. That's crazy dom what if one here's what what goes on. I not only my mom abilities my imply the rest of the world. What am and one of them is hungry? What if one of the things we can? I have a feeling that they're on the one person they won't like they'll look at me and go. That's not a regular human. I WANNA I wanna eat his dumb ass. We'll if you're exhibiting affair in the water you might. You might get Tony. Why wouldn't you well? Okay so forgive me but you guys are both of coming from less of a place of knowledge about sharks than I am. Not that I'm an expert shot but I know a little bit more about sharks than you. I I know in a shark doc. By cheese is rollover scared lifeless. Eyes dials is sorry so no it's all right but the monstrous myth that has been bill about bow. Shock is something that is patently not true we there are an average of eight shark attacks a year on human. How many Kharkov? which maybe two of them fail and we kill seventeen hundred shops a second second? So that's that's hundreds of millions of sharks dying a year and they may mos eight to ten. So you're saying we deserve. I'm saying this is just statistical but the statistics lisa but if we were to go swimming with sharks which we were going to do but it didn't happen there are. There are different times of the year where sharks are in feeding mode so we would. I would not get in the water with great wise when they are laundry or lower body fat ready to feed looking for seals looking for anything what we do is we would go swimming them. When you've got heavily pregnant females? They literally literally turn off their digestive system. They turn off their aggression. So you can. You can hang onto the dorsal fin swimming around with him and they're just not interested. They don't have an appetite. They're not interested. Did Not only that. But being on a boat with billy and exploring the idea of fear and then getting someone like billy who might have a little bit more into the water is so empowering owlry to people who are terrified of shots the look and go. He seemed to get a shot. Wow now he's doing great. Why maybe I can do that too? especially free what if what. If what if your your theory or your your experiment went wrong. Would you then say you guys are all right or would you try to get Sean Astin. Then go swimming. I mean if if something went terribly wrong of course you have to deal with those consequences. I'm always plane certainly with animals with statistics. I got so it looks dangerous but for my right knowledge. I'm from the way that we're working to is statistically way less dangerous than it looks and you know it in my mind. It just wouldn't happen obviously like billy said what if he got angry turned around. Didn't like the look of you. The Houston Caveat. You're you're in trouble. Did you almost get in a fight with Orlando Bloom ones. Yeah I I almost got into like a it would probably I think I mean. Hopefully billy would display up because billy billy I was there I was just remembering and my mind and you knew the main thing that I remember from that. What was dome shoes? Were you wearing a helmet. Fishes was wearing Brune ox. Blood sort of shoes almost like a Cuban heel had had a cane of new had a Ramon Dome. Let that I don't know at all or steel. Just like leather borough you know and it was stitched in and I remember I remember you kept Duplin and tell you my thought. Why not really how? Yeah Bet you kick them kicked him so on purpose. No purpose we we were in a Bah. We'd gone to Sydney self all the lies and bill and I think Elijah had had a nearly nine of the three of maybe went home early after dinner and we had been training the week before in New Zealand. And I'd destroyed Loyd much. I set muscles the most sore muscles of ever been in my entire life. I couldn't touch a couldn't like extend my arm. You know that feeling in the gym where you're so. Oh so I know what happened now. Could feel sleep on my back and I said to the guys on the plane I was like guys because we all trade this Guy Dave Nuku I said my arms are destroyed. Please please just don't be conscious of that. And they're like yeah. Okay fine all the for the rest of the week would just come behind me and just pinch triceps just a game ahead and it was excruciating. Ah I really don't don't don't don't don't I'm sorry Ma'am so he knew exactly what he's doing. This happened over the coast of at least a day. If not to let it go let it go let it go. I told him I was like don't do that. So because he knew. And the Marina Bob. You're drinking it. Came up on me. Grab both my triceps and squash him and I just I just lost it so I just I just hold kicked him. They're probably a round his thigh or hurt him. Yeah yeah he was. He was is upset so then he got in my face and I got in his face. Now I've been telling you I've been telling you that I'm going to fight back if you keep doing it. And he's all WIGGINS UH and try to stop it. No Billy was did right next says thinking. I'm going to see this one opposite now. Now you being interesting APPs now..

"So where's yours billy on my right right ankle underwriting and the elven number nine number nine. He's nine nine of you. Yeah and we all win. All eight eat overs. Seven of us. Because Sean Bean was already dead Mr Bean not in real life. Blood Sean Bean ill show show me very good at right so he was already gone on. John Davis didn't WANNA TATTOO. Okay why not why not is it. Sure is but we'll let me was he a he just He was Jewish and he can be tattooed. Because they can't bury a Jew whose religious and we know no that was. He was really delicate. Skin that would maybe just blow profusely. I don't think so. He was deathly allergic to his gamely makeup so he couldn't wear two days in a row. Okay or was he an asshole. No one on. I think John was because he's older under the nose. Johnny was the oldest member of the fellowship. And I do think that Jon probably thought that tattoos will more in the groups of sailors it drug dealers and bikers. You didn't even have it. He didn't have a tattoo. It wasn't because this is to this. Is the year two thousand. Yeah and I still remember back then thinking Oh. I'm one of the minority as a tattoo. But now we're at the very least even Steven. How many do you have billy? I just have that one you you have that one tattoo. So was it hard to convince billy to do this. No Billy was definitely easy. The only ones that were even slightly a challenge. I think Ian mckellan hat's a slightly. Yeah so he was good with it when we approach to Let's think about it. And then once was doing is fine there air when he got it. Then anyone weep or were they couldn't handle it as much. I got tattooed with my brother. We wrote my grandmother's name. Who passed and he was just a Puss puss love and but he was just like? Oh are you kidding me. This is he joking. It doesn't hurt. That bad. Didn't think it hurt that bad. I remember show and asked him. I've been the one who moaned. GimMe a Sean Astin Mon.. Just did he get on his foot. chauvinists invoices me just like saw. So and he was he he was before result and I thought Ooh is quite so I think on your foot is is quite painful. You know who is the he was the coolest about it. No Pain Dago He. He goes cool. Vigo already had a bunch attached so beautiful. He's like and then I did. He has a pain threshold on. Here's my favorite vehicle. Legal HOKUAPP Vigo store. He made out with. You know that's not true. That was we won't tell that story. And Yeah we will well as we wrote that became a native of drinking and he just just a great night. Everybody when I think it was snowing is a crazy night. We're on vodka. The wasn't many of those nights she no because we worked so hard and they started at four. AM So the wars in a lot of big name but this one was grey and everyone was there and it got to lake three in the morning. We weren't working the next day. The next day was a travel de gets to three in the morning gets to bed crash. We had to get up. C. E. R. Nain to travel to the next and as C. Vigo downstairs getting into the car that's going to drive Salaam getting a car that's driving me and cs holding something like a big square. Was that vehicle was that you go green eight last night. Yeah Greenway Okay I was. I was the appeals. Up is a painting he did when he got end. That nate like an amazing painting like he stayed up all night. Doing four foot by four foot something like that when everybody else is smashed an asleep and he's probably lose smash two totally and he's he's making art he's making the I could never imagine we just you know what I imagined him naked for some reason doing I'm sure he's writing poetry and it was in the back of a pony. He's brilliant Vigo he's like the greatest east example in my life up to now of the quintessential artist. Obviously Billy's an amazing artist activities. Oh Sing Gary's a songwriter. I look at the things is that he does music and I think wow. That's that's incredible and Vigo's not quite an accomplished musician is billy but in terms of the way that Billy Vigo looks at his life. Everything's opportunity to be artistic whether it's Ryan Not Drawing support him poet brilliant photographer and I mean obviously as an actor I mean the journey that Vigo's gone from I think after arrogant. He was offered pretty much everything that any lead man was offered turned it down. Turn it down turn it down. He won't introduce stuff with horses. Did a couple of horses spent a Lotta time with his family. How do you how do you do that? That's a different level. How do you have I mean how do I he does so much and Wendy spread yourself too thin like for him? It seems like he doesn't he just does what he wants. And he enjoys and I think the key maybe is to do something and not try to be. You're not trying to be great at it. You're not trying to make money out of you just trying to enjoy it. Yeah and I'd like to think that's what I'm trying to do is go into this next chapter in my life. I'm just like you don't have to be great at everything. Good at everything stopping so hard. And so just billy you play music. It makes you feel good right if you make no money. You're still gonNA play music exactly and I think you've you've the kneel on the head Oh let's have fun fray. Isn't it going to write that down hit the nail on the head. Well done billy. You haven't skimmed off the side there. You go to rate in the center it s a boat just making something and getting out there and just enjoying it. I think too many people worry that or it's not quite ready is not. It's not quite police than office. They'RE NOT GONNA L- is not good enough people wouldn't like I'll be embarrassed. Yeah whereas more attracted to our. That's a bet. TWISTY dim broken. You know I mean also like the Cosmos the older that I've got the more I felt like this the some of the some some sort of personality which is which is not the greatest way of describing the cosmos this some sort of presence and and Jesus Michael you are gone down that's my camel brokers inexpensive is I like her versus. Alright Sir I think the something very significant to be said full holding onto tight to something when you really want something we he try and super hard. It's like sand like slip through your fingertips. He just squeezed too tight. And it just flows through the thing that Vigo does certainly as an example being a young man of Watts and as I've grown older and become closer and closer goal is he lives in flow right flows and flow. Comes about Soleil. I'm here for a few days anytime you go vigo's house there's always a rat not a rabble a bunch people there and he's very present. I take every president but like some of his family's there some of of his friends that he's got a fire lit. He's made some food. He's cooking up some vegetarian so care got some stuff. I'm afraid there's no hassles. I've never seen Vigo be like. Oh I forgot the thing I've got they do this. He just didn't flow. He's never lay. What do you how do you? That's a good question for you guys. A couple of things are important. Things things that you know when people take out of the these guys are really funny and all. Let's put how do you turn off. How do you stay present? And how do you separate your work where you're not your work. I talked to many different people about this. But but what's your theory like. What do you do to not obsess? I've got wild things I've got this other movie. I've gotten my music. I've got my family. How do you turn off and just be present? Would what is it is something that you've always been able to do or you're taught or you were yeah. I think it's incredibly important. I think it's the most important thing and life life as being an police where you are being present you know an annuity sort of them. Buzzword the know that in a way of thinking thanking but I think it's a universal truth and has been for thousands of years and people understand. That's the way to be successful as a human actually put into practice as really difficult by think one shoe understand that that as the most important thing then you try and you know bend your life a little bit to try and make that as simple as you can. And if that's meditating which has a lot of people and or if it's just changing the way you think things or you some people will give you a really good to sake in meditation where you just remember and just go just breathe in breathe. Oh swung relate to give to my son. which is you know when all gets to Haiti? And I'm supposed to do this but I'm supposed to be there in this. You know. Watches breathe in breathe. Oh and see. Cat Yourself. I'm breathing. I'm breathing out and it just came to. Brings you back to where you where you are where you should be. Do you deal with any kind of like. I mean you've had like if you look at the story of your life and I don't know you that well obviously at a young age you had some. You went through some shit as a kid. You know your grandma raised. You Lost Your parents at a young age You know some people can sit there and say my parents were dysfunctional. And this and that but are you someone who dwells in the past ask. Someone looks who still has moments where you go back and go what the you know. Do you feel like you're still got one foot in the past or do you try to really be present move forward and and and you haven't needed needed to talk about and deal with it or have you ever dealt with it. Do you know what there's it's really complicated. Thank and I suppose it depends detain that you live in the world and not the moment nothing against you from earlier on and when you said you blamed your parents because you are too short. There's a big thing just no. It's good to blame your parents for everything you know. I feel and and in some ways. This is an awful thing you see. I'm sure in some ways because I lost my parents when I was young at freed me from that because I couldn't blame them because they weren't there so I had my own thing to deal with.

"And the American filmmakers stuff fleeing to Hollywood which you know the weather's better out there you can film all year long. The other thing is they're literally running away from lawsuits Bite from Thomas Edison. But he's quite malicious. It's not the general image. We Have Edison listen. He was quite militias. Actually if you look at the early days of his battles with Westinghouse of her AC versus DC current in electrcity He always had a little bit of a history of Surrounding himself with lawyers. But what happens by the film industry you know. He's essentially sleep playing catch-up he comes to film a little bit late. He's invented this thing. That is essentially a peep show. You know you look through view-finder but he quickly develops a projector actor and a matching invention to the lumieres. He's really trying to in some ways overcompensate for the fact that he wasn't the very first one out of the gate with the true communal cinematic experience. Now what's interesting for million this novel then is that where these These threads bet this. His creation of the film cla ballots putting together reaches its climax and they confront Edison. You think oh well is that the resolution of an all but the novel keeps going then goes into World War One and filmed tykes on another role in that setting. Yes it does And and part of the reason I wanted to do that. Is You know one of the big burdens in the life of cloth ballot. Is this obsession. He has with Sabine Being Montrose. He builds this very ambitious studio. They make the cinematic masterpiece that ultimately kind of unravels his life and I wanted You know them. I didn't want that to be the end of the story. I wanted to actually show that. In some ways he's pulled along in the slipstream of this evolving medium and at the very beginning goble one. What was fascinating is that when Germany invades Belgium in August of nineteen fourteen? There's kind of this Free for role of journalists cameramen cinematographers. And even what were termed war tourists. who arrive in Belgium and set up shop in places like Antwerp and they're essentially really waiting to film the fall of Antwerp? The siege of Antwerp and the issue was that the Belgian military had locked down every a horse and vehicle in the country. So these men for the most part couldn't get to the front but there was one a guy named Albert Dawson who is an American cinematographer. Who did something very smart and something? I've used in the book. which is that? He did a deal with the Belgian Red Cross that in return for access to a vehicle he would donate all the proceeds seeds of his newsreels. And what happens with him. Later on is fascinating as he starts to embed with the Germans to film their side of you. You know the of those of those battles because America was neutral so in some ways Germany was vying for the popular sentiment back in America to keep America out of the war but you get the rise of propaganda you do. This is where they're working. I mean there and and and I always thought that that would look a certain way but what you actually actually find is that there was a German kind of attache office in New York that was set up as a cultural exchange program and so there was a propaganda machine inside of the United States for most of World War One where they were making you know sponsoring radio broadcasts. And they're also making films back in Belgium and actually trying to get them distributed in the United States. So what did you get over. The course of this novel is the sort of Naievety with the creation of film how it represents people's lives how it overtakes people's lives how it's been used to manipulate people's lives I may not may be being grossly grossly generalizing but there's a continuum the it's a little bit like a runaway train. I mean it it. It kind of You know what's I'm always interested in this kind kind of collision course between and Commerce and so you you invent the lumieres invent nat form. But what they can't control is the various commercial end ideological illogical purposes that Phil gets put to and the social impact that has right because there are a couple of questions. Now in terms of where is film mm-hmm now encompassed a century or site. But what's the role of film now. Defense well I think it's really interesting. I think film. I'm today like we're living in a moment where there's a huge outpouring of narrative and storytelling and film is just one piece of it. But you know today. People can consume consume You know the filmed image The digital image in so many different formats on their small screens on net flicks WCHS And and so. I think it's become a very different to the kinds of early on efforts that happen although if you look at early silent film by the time sound comes in their ten thousand silent films made that were all feature length Just in the United States but the thing to remember it with that era unlike today is seventy five percent of all silent films have been lost forever. And so we're living in an age of almost we're we're completely overwhelmed with different kinds of film narratives But meanwhile from the past and the birth of this medium. There's this huge loss Involved another question is the parallel. The rise of the film industry. Are we seeing something similar with the rise of the Digital Age Jim. What can be done with technology and computers from that Naievty to how it consumes Ella? That's an interesting question. I mean I keep coming coming back to you. Know what will cultural commentators be looking at From Al Period in one hundred years from now you know what kinds of visual stories will will survive and will be Kind of archived and then also represent who we are and probably part of that is not just film but also You know social media. will be looking at president. Trump's twitter feed and his tweets as a window into culture. So you think that's interesting president. Trump's presidential library speared let brings us then to the last character in some some ways. Martin embry WHO's doing a PhD in Film Studies. It's where the novel starts and ends in some ways where you've encapsulated thing right all of this. Yeah so this kind of a frame narrative where in the early nineteen sixties mutton. embry who is a you know as you say. A film graduate student comes to interview this kind of forgotten. Figure Include Ballard. WHO's now in his eighties living at the very rundown Hollywood knickebocker hotel which in real life is where D W Griffith's and some of the other icons of the silent era basically lived in exile and completely forgotten by Hollywood so we pick up his story and what we discover through the evolving friendship chip and interviews? Between Martin and Claude Is that there is one remaining print left of the Electric Hotel Locked inside a metal trunk under Claude's bed And it's in good enough shape that it can be restored. And that's and that's what happens So I wanted to also show almost as a book end to the invention of cinema in the eighteen ninety s by the Lumiere brothers and then the evangelization of of of that medium. I wanted to show what happened too. Many of those people who were pioneers in the silent film world and because most of them were were largely forgotten what sound came in and clogged ballot is certainly an example of that. Just to end in on Claude Ballard. For a brief moment he had the sensation of holding his own beating. Heart inside had a bold fist. He's winding the camera and that's his heart in many ways. That film has been a substitute for his. Yeah I think that's a great way of putting get in and You know I think the idea of Claude's gaze and the way he lives he lives very much through not only his eyes but through the winding of the camera And and so it is a substitute in some ways for his emotional life so the book is the Electric Hotel the author Dominic Smith. It's about in many.

"Made in nineteen eight. Dominic Smith has used the birth of the film industry in his latest. It's novel also entitled the Electric Hotels Dominic. Welcome back to three CR. Thank you so much could be. The central character can put it. That way is Actually film and the influence it has had on people and society here your interest until I been Closet was it sinophile for for a long time Although I was pretty new to silent film and I think part of the reason is that even if if you grow up as a as a film Fan silent film has kind of suffered from Almost kind of visual stereotypes of when most people cahnge silent film they think melodrama they think slapstick they also think kind of jittery slightly accelerated footage and I was delighted to discover the through this the vehicle of the novel that that's goal mostly that the the acceleration is mostly the result of a technical fault. So actually silent films were intended to be an often. Worse seamless As any film you would see today. And so to your point. Silent film as a medium. The birth film Really is the kind of overarching narrative narrative and to some extent the main character in this book. Going back to the original The Electric Hotel a curious piece about the the introduction of electricity. Yeah so There was a Spanish director named seundo daydream on Who in one thousand nine hundred eight makes this film called the electric tre Kotel And it's it's quite simple it's about I think six minutes long And it's about a couple that check into a Madrid hotel And strange things begin to happen like their luggage. ascends the stairs as if by its own volition goes up to their room inside the room. Let me see that. The man's being polished as if by invisible hands You See the wife Her hair is being brushed out In a similar similar fashion. And what you cut to at the end is you. You cut to a kind of Almost a substation where someone frantically running around and turning off circuit breakers and you realize this is the result of electricity runamuck but in some ways it serves that film that original Serves as a metaphor for for what you're doing here in terms of the influence of film is. Yeah I mean. I think it's a metaphor on a on. A more tangible level. Will it was the inspiration for building an hour long feature in the book That takes the germ of the electric hotel. Really the idea of a hotel That has a kind of surreal atmosphere And I kind of repurpose that but but I think more importantly the original electric hotel was a lost film for for many years and that was rediscovered and I wanted to pay homage to that. And you're right. There is a metaphor there that is about electrification At both breath physically as you know In in the Electric Hotel feature film this is a hotel that has recently been electrified to attract new guess yes but on a metaphorical level. You could say that the new medium of film electrified audiences the world over and changed and transformed. I live so this is where we get to the characters. You have clawed Ballard who meets the Lumiere Brothers which is the beginning of his career as a film director and one of the pieces Claude takes is of his dying sister to prove his credentials or his creativity. Betty Blue Mia brothers and that becomes a pivotal moment in his life. In some way it does. I mean that's a complicated Moment and seen His sister a WHO's dying of consumption Gives Claude permission to film her death and and in her own way wants to be immortalized them in the the thing that that was really fascinating about film early on whether it was in medical settings or you know entertainment or even later in World War One There was a sense with this new medium of of people could be memorialized in this medium in the same way that in the middle of the nineteenth century with photography. You had things like you know. Funeral Port Portrait's People wanted to be immortalized in captured on this medium. That in some ways people thought would last forever but but this notion of life and death. They aren't but it's also a driving force for Claude. Because in many ways this great film he ends up creating King tries to recapture that in some ways. Yeah he's You know as a as a character he's wired A particular way so when when he's Young he has this fever that warps his corneas. And so he's had He's been wearing glasses since a very young age. And so he's he's literally viewed the entire world through a frame Later on when he comes to film and he has that kind of epiphany around his sister's death and he sees as the way audiences respond to this very poignant and very kind of touching scene he starts to really become obsessed with the idea of consuming blooming the world and curing the world In terms of what's on the other side of the viewfinder and and to some extent there's a certain kind of tunnel vision vision because when you're looking through a viewfinder you of course don't see what's going on around the frame and that's Claude's got of Achilles heel and cords perspective but also then so you've got several other characters who all sort of represent other facets of the film Industry Sabine Mantras. Yes Avi Montrose is kind of this iconic a conic French stage actress. She's a little bit modeled on Sarah Bernhardt who also made some some early films? She's had this very kind of troubled youth. A youth lost her mother at a young age. to suicide came to acting in Cedar as a way of really feeling some sense of belonging in the world but but what happens in her career as film evolves and. There's the rise of what we call celebrity. Culture Is that there starts to be this quite difficult relationship between her Public and her audiences and the nature of the kinds of roles that she plays but also then is the reaction is these as a film of her in the bathtub satisfy yet but the reaction then it divides society here and this was actually what you found found early on in film because it was a a kind of medium where they weren't establish standards so you saw things that titillated audiences But there was also often immoral pushback so Theta Barra who was often considered to be the first vamp right so she was this actress. who had all this kind of sexual allure? People really struggled with the idea that an actor could play a role like that and they weren't somehow smeared by that lack lack of morals in their real life but it speaks to. What film does where we take it as a form of reality? Yes unlike. You know the Victorian stage where many of these act came from early on At the end of a of a play the actors come to the edge of the stage they bow and they relinquished the role in film. The illusion continues in some ways even beyond the closing credits. Chip spaulding is a stuntman. Yes Oh chips bullet so close Beleid is on this journey as a concession Russian agent for the Lumiere brothers and he sent to America he's also sent to a straight he's somewhat modeled on the real life concession agent. Who was sent to Australia? A Guy Nine and Murray assess. Da who actually made a strays very first films. So Claude Ballard arrives in Sydney in eighteen ninety six and he's assembling a kind of movie making family family and the piece that he discovers In in actually in Tampa in Sydney at the Royal Aquarium and pleasure grounds. Is this wonderful talented ahead. Performing daredevil named chip spalding and he has a very particular stunt and basically his stunt is that he is a tightrope Walker. And at the time I am in in Timor Emma there was at the pleasure grounds a wire that extended from Clifton cliff and there was a young tightrope Walker who balanced out there and and went from one side to the other in the novel. Chip actually has an additional layer to that stunt which is he sets himself on fire and then jumps into the ocean but it's defying days. Yes in some way very much. So is it suggesting something about film there as well I think these all these characters are in some mhm ways a little bit broken And also there's something in their backgrounds that make them want to be noticed and so they all come into film as a way of being noticed. In a way of trying to find some fulfillment so sensationalism in some ways. Hell Bender is an entrepreneur. Yes Oh hell benders the scrappy Brooklyn Kid. Whose family runs a a novelty Paula and in the eighteen nineties? What happens that transforms him is he? He goes to see the same night that Claude Meets Sabine and then kind of their fates collide Hell Bene- goes to see the Lumiere cinematograph. In a matter Graf exhibition that quotas running. And he realizes in a moment that basically the novelty Palo where they're running gramophones and Edison's sends Connecticut scope which is basically a peepshow is dead and that the future is all about projected images but what hell does is he ends up bicycling basically repeating his father's mistakes in a new industry. His father went bankrupt so hell puts all his efforts. And money into trying. Trying to create the new Claude. Ballard a sensational piece with all the stunts and the celebrity ultimately it kind of brings him down. And what you find in this early early heyday of silent film. You know they show up in in some places like Vaudeville houses and and the money side of film even early on sometimes came from You know less than prestigious sources And so I wanted to explore that in explore the kind of way that film from the very the beginning had this commercial side. That was A little bit scrappy in some ways. But you tap into that commercial that sensational that celebrity liberty and the notion of almost trying to capture life in those characters. If we can take a step back then you've also done a lot of research because because there's a lot of information here about our people like Thomas. Edison who sent them broke in some ways these conservatives yes Thomas Edison in Has A has a fascinating role to play in early film The first before Hollywood there was a town of Fort Lee New Jersey. which was really America's First movie town where there are about eight or nine studios including where universal paramount Fox or got their beginnings Thomas Edison kind of presided of this industry in a in an interesting way. His approach to film was he wanted to control. Its commercial destiny. The Lumiere brothers were really about evangelizing this new art form. And so what. Thomas Edison does Is he basically starts. Acquiring other people's patents The mechanisms in films and he starts to do things like send private detectives out to other people's film shoots to make sure none of his copyright is being infringed upon and then the really big thing that happens in one thousand nine hundred eight is he sets up the motion picture. Patent Company and overnight It becomes illegal to import celluloid from outside of the United. Let's say you can only make film on Eastman. Kodak Film and George Eastman happens to be a member of this patent company And so what happens in Fort Lee. This first movie town is the European filmmakers. Get Fed up they start leaving and going back to Europe..

I mean, if I my preference would be then if they come to I'd like to come to later. I mean, they get child actor is a rough road, and it sets up a strange reality that is hard to simply hard to follow the rest of your life. You know, a lot of kids get work as actors when they're young because of the way they look or some sort of idiosyncratic quality about them, and then they become an adult and that thing goes away. And then now, what are you left with? It's like, you know, what what was this really about? Out. And also it takes. Every once in a while, you see a kid actor, you know, come through, and and they're great degrades adults and the other side, but we all know the stories, it's it's tough, man. So I prefer not to go down that road. If I if I yeah. And the game has changed a lot Dominic as far as the ability to just get noticed or discovered. I mean years ago you had to know somebody to get any chance for some exposure. But now with social media and all this stuff. Everybody has the opportunity to promote themselves of put it out there where they can be discovered and many people have had some success with this, especially with you to, you know, people do get some solid results from it through without a doubt. I mean know, the focus there is a little different from what I what I think of is the traditional trajectory, obviously, an actor. You know for me, it was always about storytelling. And and be honest about language about words. You know, you know, you to is equal is as you say, I mean, all bets are off man who. Who's to say what's going to happen with any of that? Yeah. That's one thing. I'm curious to ask you about Dominic because you are in the industry every everything seems to be reduced in size like our writing reduced text messages or tweets or the character. Limit our videos now short until like one minute bursts or one minute clips, do you see the length of Hollywood films being affected as far as the two and a half three and a half hour movies continuing or will Hollywood start reducing the running time of the movies, especially the ones that are aimed at the younger generation. I like definitely the car and to be honest. They don't think it's a good thing. I mean are tension spans have definitely as far as I could tell decreased and we want instant gratification..
