Choosing and Decorating your Christmas Tree

"Don't know about you. But i used to be caught in the traditional decorations verses pretty designer ish tree quagmire and once had a condo as a single gal and i got a metallic green intentionally. Not real looking. Dr seuss looking skinny tree from my place that was decorated in brightly. Dr seuss ish colors. I was single. And i could do what i wanted fast. Forward a husband child later. And we started accumulating homemade and keepsake type ornaments. Each year we get a metal ornament with our family portrait on it so in eighteen years will literally have a tree called memory lane but these handmade and photo ornaments. Don't necessarily go with the aesthetic vision. I have each year. We have our ornaments stored in bins by color. So each year we can change up the look or mix two colors or whatever we choose without hauling all the bins. Only those we want because they're labeled my answer to this conundrum of looks verses homemade ornaments was to have both so my tiny twelve inch wide by five foot. Tall grinch tree goes upstairs with all the kid ornaments. My childhood ornaments are photo ornaments and the wool animal ornaments. That my son loves downstairs. It's the more aesthetically pleasing and real freshly cut christmas tree. We get the best of both worlds and we managed to do it without a lot of space. Size and proportion is tricky to judge. If you're going to cut down your own tree because large trees look small when sitting out in a field take you're measuring tape and measure the height of your ceiling and then subtract the height of your star for the top and then subtract the height of your tree stand and then allow for at least two inches of breathing room in between the top of the star and the ceiling. Next measure your maximum width allowing for ample space to walk around and take these measurements with you to the field. When buying or cutting the tree better homes and gardens has a great article titled how to choose the best live christmas tree which linked to in the podcast notes. The douglas fir is a long lasting cut tree that holds its needles well with a pyramid shape and bluish green color. It's one of the most popular types of christmas trees available in most regions. They're lush and full with compact branches and a strong evergreen sent for heavy ornaments. They recommend a frazier for. It's also very fragrant with by color. Needles deep green on top and silvery white below. This tree is more cone shaped so it would fit well in a smaller room or tucked in a tight corner. If you have a collection of heavy ornaments or lots of lights in garland. The frazier is a good choice with its sturdy branches. If you're all about the sent choose a grand a for with shiny by color needles. Bright green on top white striped underneath the grand for has needles that are softer to the touch than some other popular furs which gives the tree a fine textured appearance. This species is possibly the most fragrant among all the first boasting a strong spicy sent. The noble for has well spaced branches covered with upwardly curved blue green needles and aren't as quickly as some of the others though it stiff branches can support plenty of ornaments and lights noble. I have a similar pyramid-shaped. Douglas firs but better homes and gardens. Thinks they haven't even more classic. Christmas tree appearance with an almost layered look to the branches. If neat and tidy is your thing a scotch pine might be the one for you with a conical shape piney sent an excellent needle retention the soft green needle. Stay on the branches. Even if the tree gets dry so you won't be left with a lot of clean up if you forget to water it for a day or two. They often have slightly crooked trunks. Which can be a plus. If you like a tree with a little personality of fresh green color and tiered branching structure make eastern white pine contender. It's long thin. Needles result in a more texture is christmas tree and it's also a popular choice for read this the writers especially love a white pine for a minimalist christmas tree. Look they're flexible. Branches aren't the best for supporting heavy ornaments. But you can still deck them out with garland and lights.

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court

"Myron medcalf has been covering college basketball for espn for nearly a decade. So my excitement. I should admit comes from a place of utter ignorance because after eight months of this pandemic after a cancellation of march madness. I have literally no idea myron what to expect from college basketball. At all this season in terms of the virus in terms of what's happening on the floor. All i really know right now. Is that both duke. And arizona announced yesterday that they are postponing their opening games. Because of covid and tennessee's rick. Barnes got diagnosed with corona virus. So let's just begin with tip off tomorrow. What's this all going to look like. Why i think that's the million dollar question college basketball a lot like college football. Most of the games are scheduled to be played obviously cove. It was a challenge for college football. I think for college basketball. That'd be magnified by about ten because you have more than three hundred team that are going to try to kick this season off. So i think everybody's just crossing their fingers and hoping for the best and not knowing what the head is on the theme of the three hundred teams. All kind of spinning. This roulette wheel is a lot to process. What are the protocols. Like the health protocols teams employers going to try to abide by this season. I think that's another important question and it's difficult to answer in that. There are so many different protocols by state by county depending on what's conference iran. I mean you're talking to thirty two different conferences. I'll give you an example. The american athletic conference. They're going to test three days per week during the season can't do a consecutive days. That's what ended up like guidelines. Recommend however at temple abide by the city of philadelphia's protocols which say they have to test seven days before competition every single day so you have even within conferences different rules and regulations. I've talked to athletic directors and california who are telling me that they still have to submit plans to their local authorities to get approval to compete this season. Forget host the team. Forget any of the other details just to be able to get back on the floor so you got see a lot of chaos unfold in the coming months so you are very clearly a healthcare reporter on top of being a college basketball reporter so myron explained to me what is happening in these. Pseudo bubbles where regular season games are gonna take place. One of them is an eleven day. Event starts tomorrow called bubble ville. Which has real dr seuss fives from what i can tell. What exactly is bubble ville. Well we're gonna find out but it's basically a bunch of teams all in one side of the megan sun in connecticut. Where the idea is you have everybody. At one location. There will be testing measures. Extreme testing measures with the goal being the kind of emulate. What you saw with the nba bobble on a on a somewhat smaller scale. They don't have the two hundred million dollars that the nba spent. Two resources are different. But i think their attempt is to mimic that. And when you're there there will be security in these hotels making sure that people are following protocols and then there will be specific places that you can and can't go. The challenge is going to be. Can you do that for dozens and dozens of teams and make sure that everybody's following the rules we saw the nba and the resources they put into that. It's a different different level. I think with college basketball in an attempt to pull this off for the next couple of weeks there are certainly some challenges attached to that. And there's already issues at bubble ville right. I mean the news baylor and some other schools have already pulled out of this tournament. Florida kobe issues. They pull out Baylor scott drew head coach. Their test positive announces that yesterday they pull out and then arizona state which was scheduled to play. Baylor in bubble veal. Says you know what we're not comfortable so you already have teams that have been moving things around an idea that i think we'll see throughout the season. How can you play college basketball with three hundred plus teams unless there is some sort of pseudo bubble environment

Medical Residents To Receive Education On Health Effects Of Climate Change

"Teaching doctors about the health effects of climate change is growing from medical schools to the residency programs where new physicians put their skills to the test. But skeptics wonder if it's appropriate for doctors to learn how climate change can affect Human Health Martha Bebinger of member station W. R. in Boston Begins Her story in clinic exam room. I just remember for so many months it was hard for you to walk. There are three people in this exam room doctor Gora. A resident he's training and seventy one year old Steve Kerns who is recovering from West Nile virus, Kerns remembers the mosquito bite on his neck but very little about the brain infection that landed him in the hospital for a week for at least six months after that. I felt like every five minutes I was being run over by a truck I couldn't work. I couldn't walk very well. And I couldn't focus. A wondered for bit if I'd ever get better now, almost two years later Kern says he's back to about five hours a day on the job making windows and doors, and he started reading again the sounds like you've made tremendous progress. Dr. Charlotte Roses is a third year primary care resident at Cambridge Hospital. It seems like tremendous progress. that. It was scary. It was scary. It was it was definitely scary us and I'm not scared anymore although. Can I get worse now over again, Dr seuss sympathizes with the fear West Nile is still rare. There were no cases in Massachusetts before two thousand and two in two, thousand, eighteen year a mosquito bit kerns cases had climbed to forty nine mosquitoes love warm temperatures and so when temperatures increase mosquitoes can have breeding seasons the virus itself West alka replicate faster and they. Bite more more active Basu learned a lot of this while treating, Kerns. He was buses i West Nile case when someone comes in with a fever and his confused, it's not what my mind thinks of as the diagnosis right away. This case has really taught me how much I need to be informed about the ways in which climate change is changing the patterns of infectious. Disease. Around the United States to inform his residence busu added the health impacts of climate change to an elective courses teaches Ross says residents need much more. This is something that needs to be more directly integrated into the curriculum because I think it's going to have such a huge impact on human health. There are no approved curricula for hospitals that might want to tell emerging. Lung specialists about longer pollen seasons as temperatures rise or teach new emergency room physicians to consider more waterborne diseases for patients with fever and diarrhea. But Pediatrician Rebecca Phillips born at Emory University has just published. A framework hospitals can use as a starting point. Patients want physicians to be able to provide guidance on things that affect their individual help. We have this accumulating body of. That climate change does just that it poses harms to our patients Dr Stanley Goldfarb, the former associate dean for curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania's medical school says hospitals trained doctors not. He worries that discussing climate change with patients might create mistrust I. Think there are concerns about getting into the political sphere because I'm against anything that's going to. represent a barrier between patients and physicians being comfortable with each other other physicians. See Wildfires, sweeping western states and hurricanes flooding the Gulf coast and say, we want to impart this information to our residents as fast as we can because it's so important that they gain this information sooner than later advocates say including climate change in residency training won't stick and tell doctors are tested on the health effects before they are licensed to practice medicine for NPR news I'm Martha Bebinger in Boston.

"dr seuss" Discussed on Let's Talk About It with Taylor Nolan

"Dot com slash talk about it. All right. That's a little reminder y'all and now we can get right back onto the show. There's so much. I want to go into so many things here and I'm like, where do we take this? There's so many places I think I the the number piece I just did a QNA Two three episodes back had a partnership with plan B, which was super exciting in that one that people should definitely take listen to buy in that. We had a listener question around does the number of sexual partners I have matter and I had shared through my own process of like I, had I didn't say the number the number ten, but I was like I'm not going over my hands. And then I was at my hands and I was like, okay I'm not going over my toes. And then when down does I guess I'm a visual person. As I was getting into my toes at that point, I was like, why am I keeping track of this? Why am I keeping track of this does this modder and kind of like what you said of stepping through that door in a way of like this is not gonna like bring me chaos and for me it was like this isn't going to bring me shame. This isn't going to decrease my worth. This is only going to bring great discovery and exploration of pleasure which like why not? Why not dare to take that step and take that risk right of processing that shame and that kind of scary place. Maybe and you go this we're GonNa talk about the bumper because you have a whole place of shame and the book to. We're talking about these places. We're going to go with these gates and sell. Let's let's talk about the buck now then. This is just lining up here. Seated like Dr Seuss version of essentially I wanna I'm going to read like if you pieces from this, if that's okay with you absolutely Okay. So the first thing that I wanNA point out here is like your introduction page which I found very important and I also have questions for you on this. One. And the opening here you have this book contained sexual content mostly expressed through genitalia, laden landscapes and provocative wording. I've written the following with humor and from the perspective of a bisexual SIS gender woman because that is what I know not because it is what I believe not because I believe it is the only form of sexual expression identification. I understand the intricacies of the Vulva Vagina and the importance of using the correct language when making a distinction between the however for the sake of rhyming I've chosen primarily use pussy Any use of girl lady woman or pronouns. She her are meant to be inclusionary and serve as one chosen identifier within a broad spectrum including trans and gender non. Conforming. It goes on for amazing things here but I thought that this piece was very important include and I also want to ask you here with you doing Dr Seuss Dr Seuss I don't believe as gendered some curious like. Why? Why not go that route? Of being non gendered so I shied away from allowing this book to be full expression of myself for a really long time and I actually had a different character that was non gendered before I decided that it was me and I owned up to the fact that it was me an owning up to it being me was owning my sexuality and my journey. So I actually had a little character called in Jack Elope it's like an attack the low, but it wasn't a jackal and. I realized that I was hiding behind this character because I didn't want to fully express and I didn't want to allow myself to be vulnerable by publishing is broken, putting it into the world and saying, this is actually me and these have actually been my experiences over the last couple of years of I'd like to share with you if you're willing to hear them and so using pronouns and actually using a like that girl as the moves through this book is is a is a declaration of me. Claiming owning my journey and putting the word bisexual like that was the first time I had put it in text and gave one to all of my family and I had a beautiful conversation with my dad about it. Because I said, like Dad, I am a bisexual woman and his response to me was while, Nicole you've always loved everybody and would you like to split the Burger which I thought was obnoxious because his splits burgers but the point was like. This book is such a reflection of a personal journey and there were moments where I was filled with doubt and I said who am I to do this but I kept coming back to this mantra of like you are the expert of your own experiences. This book is my experience fully expressed for anybody who sees a piece of themselves in it and doing anything other than expressing it as me would be a disservice to the ultimate truth..

"It. This is Taylor your host and today we're GONNA. Get into for Jin. Quote Unquote we're going to get into sexual debut burning it and to all the places you'll go. Oh Before we introduce our guest for today and I'll tell you a little bit about her and we'll go to interview. But before we do that do you just want to have a little bit of a check in because? There's a lot happening in the world we're going through. A bit of a transition right now and times just of going into a new season going into fall there's a lot in the news these days there's still no justice for Brown. Taylor, there's still no justice for many many other black people including Trans Black people and black women and it's really frustrating I've definitely received a little bit of pressure on social media to just comment on these things and just want to give a friendly reminder that like if your way don't put pressure on or expect black people to educate you or to have to. Advocate and common on this stuff it is exhausting and it is tiring and It it feels like a form of resistance to just go about life and to just live So if you see other black people doing that, don't send them messages and be like Oh how About the ruling and you know all this stuff and Oh, are you going to cover that and like just just let them be? Go. Ask. Your other white friends those questions Ray, and have those conversations there and continue doing all the work that I. Hope you've already been putting in whether it's contacting. Can't talk whether it's contacting attorney general's or. Anything. You know contacting Congress voting registered a fucking votes if you're not registered, go after all of these campaigns and even instagram having a reminder for you daily to registered about the on what's going on. So please make sure you're registered to vote please allow space for rest for yourself and especially for black people. And with all that said, we will, I'll introduce our guest and then we'll share this interview with the all. We're going to go back into sex space again today. This this was actually very fun. So maybe take a few deep breaths and we're going to transition here. So. My guess today is Nicole Hodges. She's a journalist sexual freedom philosopher and author of the Dr Seuss style book about Orgasms. It's called the places you'll go and we're going to get into this book because I'm excited shirt with the all. But she is the founder of girls who say, fuck which is an incubator for ideas that instigate change. Her projects are boundary pushing and community driven with the intention of creating a world with more pleasure and less shame. One project is men who takes men who take baths, and we're GONNA talk chat about that where she interviews men in bath and about what it means to be a man. She also is actually a fellow fellow like I'm a Canadian I mean I'm going to say him honorary. She's a fellow Canadian She lives in Toronto with her partner and her hairless Cat Ryan So excited to get into this conversation, the coal, and to to share this with y'all so Said.

Awakening from the Trance of Bad-Othering

"So, the title of tonight's talk is awakening from the Trans of bad ushering bad of the ring. and. If you've been with me for a while, you know it's a theme that I. Reflect on regularly and it's such A. Source. Of suffering. A start with a book that I really encountered recently from Dr Seuss and he wrote this when he was eighty and it was one of his last and it's called the butter battle book and it's got the UCS on one side who wear blue close in the souks where orange they live on opposite sides of a wall. And their conflict is that the UK's eat bread with the butter side up and the zoo cts with the butter side down on their bread, and this is very offensive and threatening to their cultural sensibilities. So it's a series of a growing mistrust in bad battering, and it leads to an escalating arms. Race starts with slingshots inside develops a slingshot and the other develops an even better one and the arms race goes on and on and their one upping each other until it finally gets to. A small red bomb that neither side has any possibility of defending against. And they all have to live underground with generals on both sides. Toys drop the bomb. And the book end in this is unlike any other ever read Dr Seuss the book and were the you who's a narrator asks his grandfather, the general for their side who's GonNa drop it? Will you are well he? To which GRANDPA NERVOUSLY REPLIES BE PATIENT Will See we will see. We're living in so much uncertainty. We don't know. What kind of primitive reactivity might? overtake. And what we do know is ultimately, no one wins when there's bad other spiraling when there's an office now. There's no positive social change is just that circling of violence and hatred. and. Whoever is on top temporarily? Whoever has the better slingshot for the moment has to organize resources in defense to maintain their power which they could do for days or for centuries. And everybody on some levels living underground because the danger in other words everybody has armor their hearts because their armor against the sense of bad Michelle there. So if there's a mindset of us. Against Them. A good us against bad others were watering the seeds of distrust and violence. We know this in our personal relationships I mean most of us have gotten caught at some point in that bad uttering dance of anger and blame maybe with a family member, your partner work colleague.

Each is feeling right and then they're blaming the other for causing trouble and pain. As they put out there blame that deepens the wounded an injury and there's more triggering. It just keeps going. So. It's not addressed in our personal relationships. The mistrust and anger and hate keeps US separate from each other in our own hearts armored we can't be really free. And we also know in the larger society that there's so much anger of right versus wrong. The good side bad side. There's so much dividedness right now this registered speaking whether.

"His reforms in conservation he went after US steel. I think he also apologized to the Colombian government for helping Panama pull off a COOSA. The Panama Canal can happen. He was just furious furious and he really hated. Woodrow Wilson like so much his entrance into the nineteen twelve presidential races. What led to Woodrow Wilson? Becoming President in the Nita's hated Woodrow Wilson. For being a pacifist. So you know he just was was bitter bitter so bitter so mad he just really wanted to be president you know. He always thought that he could do a better job. And I mean maybe he could have. Yeah well I liked that you refer in one of your shows to his political style as big stick energy which I thought was really funny. Feel like they've belongs t shirts. I can't take credit for that. My researcher Michael Saw Guerrero Came up with that and he was like please argues that Michael Wins a Nobel along the way right yes He was the first American to win a Nobel Prize of any kind And it was partly for a his mediation between the Japanese and the Russians during the Russo Japanese war which some people called zero because it was like an early Mecca mechanized war and they were killing each other in huge numbers. It had the potential to really sort of unsettle things in the Pacific and so he stepped in and you know was sort of a neutral mediator sort of not. There's this one great scene where he calls the Russian diplomat over to Sagamore Hill. To tell him how he thinks he should negotiate and he's playing tennis and he doesn't stop playing tennis while he's talking to the Russian diplomat like embrace from the game. He comes over and he says well. Here's what I think you should do. Here's what I'd recommend. And then he goes back to China and then he comes back and this went on for like ninety minutes can have to imagine what the Russian diplomat was thinking. He was like guys crazy. But you know that was. That was his style. So I do want to hear anything about that Dr seuss stories do so. I can't remember the exact date I feel like. It was nineteen eighteen but Theodore Roosevelt's went to this small town Where he was going to hand out awards to boy scouts who had sold a thousand dollars worth of war bonds and the Geisel Aka. Dr Susan was one of those boys. All the boys are standing up on stage. There are ten of them only has nine medals. Somebody messed up and so you know. He's penny medals on the lapels of all these kids and he gets to theodor geisel medal as. What's this boy doing here? The Boy Scouts Baxter. Just didn't say anything he just like ran guys l. off stage and then apparently that gave Dr Seuss stagefright for the rest of his life. That's incredible now horrifying. I mean like it. It makes sense. It would be so humiliating and you know it wasn't his fault wasn't tr's fault. It was just the thing that happened and And there were implication so tell me how have you been inspired by Teddy Roosevelt to change your life in any way or or have you taken any sort of inspiration from all these stories? I really WANNA try to be more productive and sort of block out my time. Like I'm a big believer in a to do list. Apparently that's not enough. That doesn't help you be productive enough so I think in twenty twenty. I'm going to start blocking out my time And seeing how how that goes or maybe I'll take up judo. We'll see I like that for no carrying a badger around or no. No no no I mean I my cats there about all I can handle pearl kind of looks like a Badger so fee per Woolsey Badger so adorable cat so cute. Tell everyone where they can find the show and so they should start with. Well I mean I personally think you should start from. Tr versus weakness which is the first one because it lays the groundwork for everything that comes next but in terms of my favorite tier versus time is a big one I like tr versus language. Just because it gets into the whole simplified spelling debacle which is one of my favorite stories of all time. Terrorists versus corruption is really fun. 'cause I think you get a really good sense of the unusual style. He used to take on corruption. They're all kind of close to my heart to be honest and it's crazy everything is involved in from like everything football and there's so much we couldn't even get into you know like. I go forever but you know every time I said. Let's add an episode. Oh no no no no no dylan. We're like Erin you're crazy stopping services. Nature's they're all fun funding their own ways and I think what's I can't choose but you know I think what's what's good about. This is that you read the biographies about Tr. And everybody kind of focuses on the thing that they want to focus on doing a podcast like this in this format has kind of allowed us to drop in and out of his life to feature different things and I think it's actually allowed us to get into some of the not so great stuff you know and explore that in a way that I hope is enlightening and thoughtful. So you know. We'll see well respond to that. It's a really excellent series and really really fun and you can get history versus mental floss everywhere from Iheart spotify Stitcher to wherever you get your podcast but What's next for the series? So we are looking at an explorer for the second season. I don't WanNa say who owns boil it but not the explorer. You're probably thinking of So that's fun and then for the third season I have an author. I'd like to feature awesome and we'll see and there's kind of a Theodore Roosevelt connection to all to both of those Nice I mean yeah like he was involved in literally everything Eric. Rt thank you so much for being here. That's part genius this week. We'll be back next week with an episode on elevators. I think it's going to be great. I promise and in the meantime from will gave Lola me. Thanks so much for listening.

How Canticos Creator Susie Jaramillo Built an Inclusive Kids' Brand

"Had a meal knows how to build a brand for years. She led one of the top multicultural creative agencies in the US then she decided to apply that expertise for brand of her own encompass a media company that designs develops and distributes animated films books and Apps Today Day. I'm in Suzy's home in Brooklyn hoping to absorb her wisdom on branding pivoting mid-career instinct focused on the purpose. That drives her business suzie. I was planning on starting this interview by telling you that because I know interview new. I've been singing this by ethos and we're seeing that in my home all the time of But Wow I am with you on a big day for you. Yeah it's it's a very exciting day. Two two million dollars raised in an oversubscribed seed round. Yeah it's very exciting. That's got to feel good. It the imprinting is really shows how people really get the opportunity. It shows how you know. The investment community really understands who need for content and for brands hands that appeal to diverse markets diverse kids to raise families. What was it like to walk into those rooms and make those pitches it it was? I'M NOT GONNA lie. It's a little intimidating because Because I don't come from finance I've never raise is money before I got to walk in with my partner. WHO's amazing and I have a fundamental belief that if you be true to yourself everything else will follow? It was my job in those rooms to tell the story. That's all I had to do by also really felt I walked into every single Thinking if this to be it will happen. If this is not meant to be it will not happen and and that is a wonderful way of like letting go of all of your fears. I've always believed that like fears for rich people right there with insecurity. Those are like luxuries. I can't really afford so I would just walk in like okay. This is what we're doing. This is what we're doing it. It makes complete sense to us if you would like to be a part of this in help purpose built. You are welcome if you have a if you really question this opportunity if you question this market if you don't believe in what we're doing we're probably not the right fit for you you you say. Your premise is simple when in reality what you're trying to do is very complicated Build beloved brands and tell authentic stories create content inspired by a world of culture US media and technology as a force for good. Those are not simple goals. Susie you know one at a time name I I like to say you can do everything just not at once not all at once and you put one foot in front of the other. If you're gonNA build a brand it might as well. Maybe a beloved brands that stands the test of time right. If you're going to build a brand it might as well have substance. It might as well have stories if you come from a diverse this culture you might as well tell your story You might as well elevate your community And if you're an artist if you're a creative I think you you do your best when you serve when you are true to your community when you're a true to your values and when you are to the message that you think needs needs to be told at a given point in time and I think right now it's really important that our stories be told the way we wanna tell them who you say you knew what was missing in the market. What was missing? Well it's kind of funny so I I came from the advertising space and I'm GonNa just do the setup I in on a regular basis. I pitched the the multiple markets the Latino opportunity. In how how how much How powerful this market was? Did you ever get to a point where you would say. They're the most brand loyal group American. Almost gag from the fact that you have us us my my frustration with his with the Latin communities that they don't demand more they don't demand more from their media companies more from the companies that they buy from their market. It gets taken for granted completely and that was the massive source of frustration for me. It's like sure they they watch these media outlets because they're the only ones that cater to them and didn't want to tell their stories and I was like I love these cultures. I lived these cultures and so I felt that okay. So here's a business opportunity. Now you know because on a regular basis. I'm pitching this business. Yeah I know that these These my most of my clients are not really going to do much because they can. I just want to do what's good enough And I was having babies and I was kind I'm done mentally done with. Advertising was okay this is. I'm not doing what I was supposed to do. I know that you have this little inside voice. It's the little voice that tells you you know. This would be a a really good idea. You could do this really well And I wasn't drawing. I'm an artist by trade. What I studied? That's what I'm best at and I was like like you know what there's a massive opportunity to do. Wonderful beautiful illustrated stories animated projects for in my my case in the Latin community. And I'm not going to do it here in the advertising agency let me at least in a low hanging fruit I mean where my board books that celebrate my Latin culture whereas Los dos elsewhere it whereas Valencia. And I was like if I don't do this someone else is GonNa do it. They're going to do it badly. And I'm going to be so I'm going to be so are a lot of people that have done about it. I mean wouldn't you. I've had the experience of going to buy Spanish language books for my child and I was not a lot on the shelf. A lot of what's on the shelf. Feels like it was an afterthought sims my husband's like did they run this through Google translate to like do they have an actual Spanish Naggar. Who wrote that's what what when you actually looked at the market? What wasn't there so most of what you would find in terms of board books were translations thousands of American nursery rhymes or translations of American classics important books? Eric Carlyle Dr Seuss in Spanish right. But you couldn't couldn't find the witty wonderful issue rhymes that actually come from that culture which also matters because those things are written to rhyme in a way that helps you learned and some basics of language doesn't work in transliteration exit also so so that was my talent right because I if we can sing twinkle twinkle star in Spanish why why can't the American markets signals produce in English. Why can't Arner three rhymes be American classics? We're a part of this tapestry. Now so part of my challenge as a kid who grew up. Dr Seuss was let me take all of these wonderful nursery rhymes and interpret them in English. And I want American kids to sing thing little. Ticky squeaky wheel feel you know what I mean and understand these nursery rhymes and seeing them in English and this this way the Spanish will be closer took the culture will be closer to them because part of our responsibility as cultural ambassadors is to bring the cultures closer together whether it be through language anguish whether through pre culture are. It doesn't matter like if I have a little American kid singing in English a little Latin. Could we'll get excited. They we know it right. Even though it's an English familiar to them anyways I just wanted to make it easier for everybody. So how did you start. I didn't know exactly what this would look like. I knew it would be a brand. I knew it would celebrate all these adorable little characters. Start starring Little Ticky Pretty cute right But I didn't know how I was GONNA do it. However it just made sense to start with board bucks and I wanted the board books to be reversible and lift the flap so for someone who doesn't have a child aboard book book is a Board Book is a thick heavy book that a kid will not tear easily critical thing understand? We're on it. I will survive you you wanted. It's like Xuan ability imports. And here's here's another part this is. This is a book that has very few words. So if you're an artist it's it's low hanging fruit. It's a book that relies heavier on art that it does than it does on on Written prose so you can do a board book with one nursery tree rhyme so I was like oh my gosh. This is a series. It's mother goose for the for the Latino community but it I personally find bilingual. Books oftentimes sometimes cumbersome because it's two languages that they throw at you at on the same page and it's it's it's cumbersome and I wanted to do this. In a different format I wanted reversible board books because because with reversible board books you can read it in in Spanish in one language and when the kid goes again again okay again. Let's written English so you get to read to the child one on language at a time and you instilled them in the love for languages with the repetition and then they're able to appreciate things like phonics and music and early literacy excuses skills one at a time so I wanted to explore that new format which I've never seen done with books here in the United States and and I had it in my head like I gotta do this gotTa do this but of course life takes over right ahead. At the time I had two little kids I had a four year old and a two and a half year old and the two and a half year old was starting pre pre K.. Like two days a week two and a half days a week in a little playgroup in a church basement and she. He did not want to go to her group and she was throwing all kinds of temper tantrums and being the sucker that I was I decide. Okay I will leave. I'll sit here for four hours or at least maybe half an hour until you let me go and I was in a church basement with there was no internet so I couldn't read the news on my phone. Which is normally what I would have done so I grab some construction paper? And I started mapping out my little stickies book the first book that we did and when I saw how the format actually really worked and how I could lift the flap into peel and how I could make the create a wheel and make the the hen run to go get the the corn. I got really excited and that was just the START I hey. I had a fully illustrated book two weeks later because I got so excited. I just immediately start drawing illustrated and then after that I just started the next book. Okay now I'm GonNa do elephants now because one think I knew from my time as a creative is that you can talk all day long. But if you don't show people something they cannot imagine at the battles of so you know if you and if you can't do the due diligence of believing in yourself and fleshing out your idea yourself will then it's not their responsibility to like project act a made up vision of what you could do into the air so it is important that you just do it that you just you know you know. It's funny because oftentimes people will tell me. Well how did did you find the time to do it and Blah Blah and. I just think it's important to know that you will never find the time nobody ever finds time. You make the time if you really want to do something thank you just do it and everything else has followed since

How I Built This

Live From The HIBT Summit: Stewart Butterfield

"Hey everyone so today. We've got another one of my conversations from the how I built this summit. That happened in San Francisco last October. And you don't in the world of startups. Most difficult moves to pull off is a pivot to maneuver out of your first idea into something that might have more potential and Stewart Butterfield. He pulled this off not once but twice about seventy years ago. Out of the ashes of failed video game. Stewart launched slack an office collaboration tool that now has twelve million daily users but before slack back in two thousand four Stewart was struggling to get traction Shen with another video game called game never ending. He wound up shedding that one down too but out of that failure he was able to launch a photo sharing site called liquor which he sold just a year later for around twenty million dollars so when I sat down with Stewart onstage. I asked him about both of those pivots. Starting starting with the first one from game. Never ending to flicker there was a point and you talked about this in the podcast where you had to decide whether to drop all this work on this computer game like more than a year. I think two years of work on this game and pivot to the photo sharing site and there was a debate in internal debate. I wonder how did you know that that was the right thing to do. Because our instinct would tell us to push forward Gordon to keep going right like. That's what we think we're supposed to do to just carry on and March forward. Yeah there's a lot of advice that's just persevere grit grit resilience gotta keep going in the face of adversity over and over but there is definitely a point where you either you know. It can't work or kind of like the reverse verse manifesting of I don't believe anymore this could work. which makes it very unlikely? If if the person leading the project doesn't believe it can work. It's it will be a weird fluke for it actually to work out but we were just out of money and it would have been much more difficult complex project. Complete Games would have taken us a minimum of another year but probably realistic closer to two more years. And we didn't have that kind of time. Whereas flicker we figured we can get version of this out in A couple of months and it actually was. I don't remember the exact dates anymore but some time in December two thousand and two that we decided to do it and early February two thousand three launched. So you guys ended up selling flicker to Yahoo and you described yourself as briefly Internet famous. You you actually were on the cover of Newsweek magazine with with some of the people at one point which. I'm assuming Gotcha some attention to allow you to kind of think about the next project kicked you decide to go back and start another company. That was going to be a computer game called glitch. What was driving you then I I mean did you think okay? Now I've failed failed the first time now. I know how to do it right. We can talk about the reasons that we used to convince ourselves that it would work this time. There was actually a lot of realistic realistic stuff. There the cost of hardware so servers in the background had fallen by at least ninety percent and bunch of things change by a factor of ten the number of people online line change by a factor of ten the availability of great open source software tools but stepping back when I got in line in Nineteen Ninety two and I grew up in Victoria British Columbia. which is a pretty small town actually provincial? It's on the edge of the continent and then it's on an island so it feels very remote and cut off from the rest of the world world to kind of an an observer and when I got to college I got an account on the school's unique machine and that meant I had access to the Internet and this is maybe six or nine months before the web really started to take off so the Internet at that time was a thing called newsgroup which is hierarchical directory of kind. Hi discussion boards for more or less everything in the world's hugely popular in the scientific community and academic communities but also recreational in fact kind of mind blowing looming but wreck dot music dot g dead. The grateful dead Newsgroup was the most popular thing on the entire Internet is like in terms of traffic it was the net flicks of its day. Just like the text postings going back and forth and I just really remember that as being one of the most revelatory mind-blowing experiences in my life that even though we were on the edge of the world at felt like and kind of really outside of everything that was really happening. I can connect anyone and that kind of the possibilities for computer technology to facilitate human interaction to me are endlessly fascinating and I think when we you look back. Tens of thousands of years to this time it will seem as significant as the development of written language because it just allows this accretive knowledge allows allows the accessibility allows US instant communication coordination between people. And we're still like one percent of the way into exploring the possibilities. So I mean with with glitch right. This is a beautiful game. Raise money around it. You had great developers. You convince people to move across the country work on this what happened. It just didn't so in this case we had the money in fact acme of money leftover when we decided to shut it down but it was apparent that it wouldn't work and I think this is a if there's one thing that's an actual like practical lesson for entrepreneurs in in all of this history besides the sometimes pivots work it's It's hard if it's really really hard to explain your at an enormous disadvantage wjr. And so what does the way games are marketed. Generally as there's kind of two by two Matrix and in one access it's the kind of veneer. Looks like the World War. Two or post apocalyptic sci fi or it looks like Bennigan's and dragons or it looks like Pika chew or something like that like cutesy cartoon. There's that the flavor of it and then there's the the the mechanics of the game first person shooter real time strategy and puzzle games and stuff like that and games are marketed is. It's like their position on this grid so it's a World War Two first person shooter. Game an instantly people can see like at least I understand what that is and maybe I'm interested in. Maybe I'm not. We tried to sell the world a massively multiplayer game with no combat cooperative. It was kind of Monty Python meets Dr Dr seuss surreal absurd literally. This is the game with you. Would milk butterflies collect milk. You would squeeze eggs. Squeezed chickens to get eggs anyway was very How did you raise? Money are around that I think the fact that we had been successful before but is also right at this interesting juncture where it was around round the year that android came out around the year that iphones actually started to take off and suddenly. There's this massive shift in people's discretionary Internet time from desktop and laptop stopping heaters to mobile's we had made a bat on Flash AS TECHNOLOGY FOR DELIVERING The game which wasn't going to work on mobile's and in the end that that really was the nail in the coffin. If it hadn't been for that I think it would have been worth trying a little bit more but I was committed in everyday came in with optimism and that was sure that this next thing that we were going to try it was going to work and then we did it and it didn't work but by the end I think the kind of technological dead end we had find or sounds going down the fact that it was desktop only a world that was going increasingly mobile the fact that it was already so hard to explain made it really tough. Despite the fact that there it was a super committed very enthusiastic audience I just lost faith and I realized then like once I had done that it was now.

How the Berenstain Bears Came to Be

"Three little bears one with the light. One with the stick and one with the rope. A spooky old tree three do they dare go into that spooky old tree. Yes they dare. These are the opening lines from one of my favorite children's books of all time called the spooky old tree by Stan and Jan Bernstein. You may have heard of the Bernstein bear books but growing up. They were some of my all time favorites. I have many good memories in my mom reading these books to me and my siblings when we were little tonight. We're going to learn about Stan and Jan the authors and illustrators of these fun and Imaginative Adjective Stories Janice this grant and Stanley Barron stain. Were born in the same year in the same town nineteen twenty-three and Philadelphia Pennsylvania. They they were born during the Great Depression which was a very hard time for most people. Living in the United States there was very little work and most families were very poor four Shannon. Stan didn't know each other when they were little but they had similar interests and both wanted to go to art school at age eighteen. They ended up going going to the same school and many other on the first day in a drawing class taught by a teacher named Miss Sweetie Stan and Jan instantly liked each each other and spent the rest of the year working on art projects together when World War Two started Stan was able to use. This is art skills and became an illustrator in the army and illustrator is someone who draws or does illustrate which is another word for drawings however rejane joined a large group of American women who helped build things for the war effort. She was a riveter. Riveter is someone who uses bolts to attach pieces of metal together during the war. Stan and Jan were separated but when the war was over they met again and were married in nineteen forty six. At first Stan and Jan where teachers but they really wanted to be cartoonists and soon found jobs illustrating for different magazines and newspapers. Most most of their illustrations were funny in nineteen sixty. They wrote their first children's book together. They had lots of ideas about who the subject of their books should be but but eventually they decided on bears because they could stand on two feet much like humans they call them. The Baron stained bear family after their own last name. By this time they also had their first Leo and wanted to include some of the funny moments and ups and downs of raising a child in the books. Papa bear were overalls overalls and a plaid shirt in Mama. Bear were a Polka dot dress and like their own child. They had one lively bear cub. Their first stories ended up being read by Dr seuss. One of the most famous children's story authors of all time. You can find our other episode about Dr Seuss. Dr Seuss love the stories and gave Stan and Jan lots of ideas about how to improve them. Their first big story was called the big honey hunt after through their bare story. They thought that switch to a different animal like a penguin but the first book did so well. They decided to keep writing more. Dr Seuss made sure the name. The Barron stained bears was added to the top of every book and shortened their names from Stanley and Janice to Stan and Jan without even asking them over the next several years standing Jan work from their home in Philadelphia and created hundreds more Bernstein bear books included topics like going to the dentist making new new friends. Bullying messy rooms honesty and healthy eating together. The Bear family lived in a big tree house down a sunny dirt road deep in bear country leader sister joined the family and finally honeybear. The baby bear came together. They worked and played and learned lessons about life. And that was the point of so many of these stories by standing Jan to teach the listener about family life and making good decisions also called moral stories over the years the Barron stains wrote over three hundred books and sold over two hundred and sixty million copies of their books. Many have also been made into TV movies and television series a few computer games. I mentioned the spooky old tree. You'll have to check that one out. A few other favorites were bears in the night. Right and the bears vacation. If you're interested your library should have them or you can find them online. Stand Jan have now since passed away but their sons is Leo and Michael have carried on the business. Lee is also an artist and has illustrated many of the new baron stained bear books with his mother Jan before she passed away.

Hey brain stuff lauren. bo-bottle here know someone who doesn't doesn't get into the holiday spirit why they must be grinch with his green first scowling face and heart. That was two sizes too small. The fictional figure of the grinch leapt into the American consciousness business from his miserly home atop mount crump in nineteen fifty seven with the publication of how the grinch stole Christmas. He's lived on in vintage cartoons. Full length motion pictures. There's end merchandise ever. Since but did the grinch have a real life d'appel Ganger surprisingly yes and more surprisingly. It was probably his creator. Dr Sousse Theodor. SEUSS geisel under the pseudonym. Dr Seuss wrote and illustrated dozens of books including how the stole Christmas. His creative works for children were initially usually met with lukewarm commercial success but Dr Seuss's exploration and refinement of his craft coincided with the Mid Twentieth Century Educational Evolution of Children's reading material. Imagine being learning to read student pro offered a time worn Dick and Jane series and then suddenly encountering colorful page. Turner like seuss's cat in the hat hat with its inventive lyrical rhymes. This is exactly what occurred for nearly an entire generation of students who were learning to read rather than learning whole all words from repetition. which was the Dick and Jane Approach? Dr seuss's cat in the hat book helped lay the foundation for an approach. That was based on an emphasized making reading more fun when the captain had became Dr Seuss's first commercial hit and the book sold more than a quarter of a million copies by Christmas of nineteen fifty seven before long it was joined joined by another Christmas miracle over the course of a few short weeks. The story of the grinch practically poured from Dr seuss's pen it was he said in a nineteen fifty seven interview with Redbook with magazine the easiest book of My career to write and he said it was so easy because he only needed to look in the mirror for inspiration. He told redbook quote. I was expression my teeth on the morning of the twenty six of last December when I noted a very grinch ish countenance in the mirror. It was Sousse something had gone wrong with Christmas. I realized or more likely with me so I wrote the story about my sour friend the grinch to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously I lost if that wasn't proof enough on the occasion of unveiling Dr Seuss's commemorative and posthumous. US Postal Service stamp in two thousand three his step daughter. Lark gray diamond cates. It's remarked that quote grinch was Ted on his bad days and the author and his wife drove a vehicle with the vanity license plate. Showcasing just one word grinch inch by the way science has been thinking about the grinches heart. You know how it started off two sizes too small and then grew three sizes in a single day. Pretty unusual for most beings but cardiologists Dr David Cass theorized. On all things considered that perhaps grinches are related to the Burmese Python. Burmese pythons grow an additional forty percent of the muscle mass of their hearts in the two days following a big meal so that they can more blood do their bodies thus enabling digestion afterwards afterwards their hearts shrink back down with no harm to the snake and the grinch is certainly slithery.

"Please don't don't ask why no one quite knows the reason it could be as head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be perhaps shoes. We're too tight but yeah I think that the most likely reason all may have been that his heart was two sizes too small but whatever. The reason is hard or shoes shoes. He stood there on Christmas Eve hating the WHO's staring down from his cave with a sour grinchey frown the warm lighted windows below. The town for he knew every down in Whoville beneath was busy now hanging mistletoe. ARETHA and they're hanging stockings. E snarled with a sneer. Tomorrow is Christmas. It's practically here. Then he growled with his grinch fingers. Nervously drumming. I must find some way to stop Christmas from a main for tomorrow. He knew and all the WHO girls and boys would wake Breitner lead. They'd rush for their toys. And then oh the noise. Oh the a noise noise noise noise. That's one thing. He hated the noise. Noise noise no choice. Then the WHO young and old would sit down to a feast and they'd Feast on they. Feast feast feast feast feast. They would feast on who pudding and rare who rose beast which was something that grinch couldn't stand in the least and then they do something he liked least of all every who down in Whoville. The tall and this mall would stand close together with Christmas bells ringing. They'd stand hand in hand. And the WHO's would star Dr Singing Sing Sing Sing Sing Sing Sing. And the more the grinch thought of the WHO Christmas Christmas sing the more the grinch thought. I must stop this whole thing. Why for fifty three years? I've put up with it now. I'm more a stop Christmas from coming. But how then he got an idea. An awful idea the grinch gonNA wonderful. Aw Idea I know just what to do. The grinch laughed in his throat and he made a quick Sacchi. 'cause hat and coat. Hello and he chuckled. And what a great grinchey trick with this code in this hat. I'll look just like Saint Nick. All I need reindeer. The grinch looked around but since reindeer are scares there were none to be found. Did that stop the old grinch. No the grinch simply said if I can't find a reindeer I'll make one instead. So he called his dog. Max Max then. He took some red thread and he tied bighorn on the top of his head. Then you load some bags and some old empty sacks zone. A ramshackle sleigh any hitched up old. Max then the grinch said get up and the SLEIGH started down toward the homes where the WHO. ooh Lay a snooze in their town. All their windows were dark. Cliett snow filled the air. And the whose we're all dreaming sweet dreams dreams without care. When he came to the first little house on the square? This is stop number one. The old grinchey clause how's hissed any climbed to the roof empty bags in his fist. Then he slid down the chimney around a tight pinch but if Santa it could do it then so called the grinch he got stuck only once for a moment or two then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flu where the little well who stockings all hung in a row. These stockings grin are the first things to go then. He slithered and slunk with a smile most unpleasant around the whole route and he took every president. Pop guns bicycles roller skates drums. checkerboards boards tricycles popcorn plums. And he stuff them. And then the grinch Berry Nibley stuff dole the bags things one by one the then he slumped to the ice box. He took the feast. He took a WHO pudding he took the roast beast. He cleaned out the iceboxes. Quick as a flash way the grinch even took the last can who hash then he stuffed all all the food up the chimney with Glee and now grandee grinch. I will stop the tree. The grinch grabbed the tree and he started to shove then he heard a small sound like the coup of a dog. He turned around fast and saw a small vittal. Cindy blue. Who was not more than two? The grinch had been caught by this tiny who daughter who got out of bed for a couple of cold water. She stared at the grinch and said Santa Claus. Why why are you taking our Christmas tree? But you know that old grinch was so so smart so slick. He thought up a lie beneath thought it up quick why my sweet little taught the fake sandy claws lied. So there's a light on this tree that on one side so I'm taking it home to my workshop. My dear I'll fix it up there then I'll I'll bring it back here. And his fifth food the child then he patted her head and he got her a drink. And he's Saturday bed. And when Cindy Lou who went to bed with her cop he went to the chimney and stuffed the tree then the last thing he took doc was the log for their fire then he went up the chimney himself the old liar on their walls he left nothing but hooks some wire fire and the one speck of food that he left in the house was a crumb was even too small for mouse. Then then he did the same thing to the other whose houses leaving crumbs much too small for the other whose houses it was quarter past asked Dawn. All the WHO's still bed all the WHO still a snooze when he packed up his sled packed it up with their presence the ribbons the wrappings. The rags and the tinsel the trimmings that trappings three thousand feet up the side of Mount Trumpet Erode with as low to the tip top to dump trumpet Poo Poo to the. Who's he was grizzly humming? They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming. They're just waking up. I know just just what they'll do. Their mouth will hang open a minute or two and then the whos down in Whoville. We'll all cry boo. ooh Hoo that's annoys grin the grinch that I simply must here so he paused and the grinch put his hand and to his ear and he did hear a sound rising over the snow. It started in low then it started to grow but the sound wasn't sad by this sounded Mary. It couldn't be so but it was Mary very he. He stared down at WHOVILLE. The grinch pop is is then he shook what he saw was a shocking surprise. Every who down in Whoville Bill. The tall and the small was singing without any presence at all he hadn't stopped Christmas from coming. It came somehow somehow or other. It came just the same and the grinch with his feet ice cold in the snow. To puzzling and puzzling. How could it be so it came without? Ribbons came without tags. It came about packages boxes or bags and he puzzled with three hours. To lose. Puzzle was sore. Then the grinch thought of something he hadn't before maybe Christmas he thought doesn't come mm-hmm from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more and what happened then. Well AH in Whoville they say that the grinches small heart grew three sizes that day and the minute is heart. Didn't feel quite so tight. He whizzed just with his load through the bright morning light and he brought back the toys and the food for the feast and he he himself. The grinch carved the rose.

Lynda Barry and Chris Ware: Making Comics and Rusty Brown

"Some thirty years ago. Art Spiegelman was led to agree that if we could take frequent breaks he would come into the studio even though he has to smoke back then. It's around thirty years ago. Art I smoked two will go on breaks together. Either he said okay. We did a show and we became immediate friends and one by one he introduced me to Chris. Wears work to Dan Klose's work. I think you Chris Dan Clouds and chip kidd a book designer. Were on the show together now. Finally after thirty years of being toned than I would would love Linda Barry that she's inspiring that she's improvisational explosive. I Have Lynda Barry here for her book making comics. And I'm curious about how you own wall because Matt graining. The inventor of the simpsons is a part of this and the Canadian artist named Seth Is. Did you all get together. Well I I met Chris. I remember you being a key in my mind. You're a kid and it was when mouse to the second book had come out and art called me on the phone. He was in town to sign books and he said I want you to meet this kid. He called you a kid. I want you to meet this kid. He said he can draw anything. And I said okay he goes. No I actually mean he can draw anything and I remember being in this Restaurant restaurant or a cafe and that you didn't talk very much and you just sort of leaned back and looked terrified but I remember I likes Hugh immediately and I didn't know your work and I didn't know what you did but I just remember liking you immediately so my relationship with you. Chris is a procedure. Cj Work or even precedes me. Even knowing your work I just remember you as very young sort of timid White boy why I knew you before I knew your work too because I remember seeing you on the David Letterman. Show shell when I was in high school and you were the funniest guest that he'd had and I thought who is this person because your work didn't appear in Omaha World World Herald or any of the Omaha papers at all but you were a personality that was clearly one to be contended with and you you clearly cannot flipped out the host of the show. I don't think he knew what I did. Honest held a gun to his head and just said why does she do uh-huh and there'd be on the other side of the wall because he wouldn't have known well then when I finally met you with partly you're talking about when I was in Chicago a you're the funniest person in impersonate ever remember me. Just laughing. At everything he said was true. I just sat there and giggled. Linda's work when I got to know it I I was not only surprised. Funny it was but it was maybe in the mid eighties or so and in the late eighties where you started really do serious storytelling retelling in your strips in completely knocked me over. I couldn't believe the stuff that she was getting at in her stories and strips and how deeply deeply felt it was. I was sure that it was all autobiography. Because if it was drawn with such conviction and even to say those words drawn with conviction didn't really apply to comics at that point and I was shocked to find out when I think I read an interview in the Comics Journal with you that it was fiction. Shen that you were writing and eight started stealing from you immediately because you had something that I so desperately wanted which was to be able to write something that felt real and felt like it was emotionally grounded and came from a point that was human which at that point in comics was almost unheard unheard of and I kind of from studying your stuff and trying to write stories about my own life. I found myself kind of channeling. Your Voice but through channel in your voice finding my own voice. You know who was who was a big influence for me was John. Wilson was nuts. That's your series. He he did nuts because it was in the national. It was the national lampoon but it took a childhood sadness seriously And it really had a big influence on me him and Dr Seuss. Whatever you think nuts you know? Oddly peanuts I never ever bonded or attached to peanuts. I don't know why I think it was too close to the sadness was a little bit too close. I'm you know I'm the Family Circus Lover which everybody but he just yeah? I'm the Family Circus Lover. I loved family circus but Peanuts was too sad for me Well what's warrantless is. Linda's new book is making comics and aside from being a marvelous assignment book. which which will take you from the childhood activity of drawing monsters all the way up to making comic books? I'm a big big fan of her book. One hundred teams in making comics. She says something that amounts to if if you're uncertain about something do it again and again and again and so the first two or three pages of making comics is devoted to different versions of one hundred demons. One hundred demons one hundred demons one hundred the demons and you see altogether. They make a beautiful gallery and a wonderful Kalash and VATS. When I discovered about Linda Barry is that her work is a collage of feeling of vision John of faces of forms of animals of monsters of demons? Tell the story again and again and again and again says Gertrude Stein and you will have told the story. And that's what makes the work. It seems to me so earnest funny but grab you by the scrub of the neck heart. Something I was thinking about how many books I've read for the second third or fourth time and had that experience. It's the same book but I'm seeing something I have never seen before and which can also also have everything to do with three other books read in between and suddenly those three other books put this prism and you can see this new kind of color combination And that's one of the things. I love most about books as kind of how their endless and Chris's book Rusty Brown is one of those ones that you can dwell in forever

And so Dr Seuss turned in the cat in the hat, and his editor was just like amazed that like you only use like one hundred fifty different words in this book. And the book is however, many total words he's like that's like nobody's ever done that. And to editor was like, I bet you can't, you know, write a book using less than fifty unique words, that's as long as this one in terms of the total number of words. He was like, okay. So he goes out and your rights, green eggs and ham. The bestselling children's book of all time. And it was just like a it was like a constraint that somebody like, hey, can you do this? And he's like on those sounds like a fun challenge. And so, you know, I think sometimes creative constraints can help. So, you know, instead of just saying I have to tweet you come up with like, you know, restrictions like, you know, on Mondays after tweet about this. And I think that's even you know, there's already those hashtags like Monday motivation and Wednesday wisdom, and you know, I think one of the. Reasons those things are helpful is because it provides just like a structure like a framework. Yeah. Tax. So it's like, okay. If I have to do this, and that's a little bit easier because again, like even like talking about money, you know, that's too broad. But like if you were to do something where you're like, okay. On Monday, I'm going to write an article about investing. That's a little bit better. Because it's like what does somebody need to know about particularly investing? But it's better if you get even more specific than that like, okay, I we're going to do like a, you know, a series on like the different types of like tax advantaged accounts or something like that. And you know, it just the more precise that you are the easier. It is to like just actually get up and do it. Yeah. Well, speaking of which you have a book about personal finance? So I do work if people find that book, so they can find it on Amazon. And I actually I created a little corner of my blog just for your listeners. And so.

"It's animated or it's like, it's like, you know, CGI, whatever. Oh, he also invented the word nerd. Yep. Didn't he he did? This guy is a real word Smith, so one last thing I would like to attribute I wanna see your opinion on this. And we want to hear your opinion. Ridiculous stories apparently Dr Seuss had dabbled in Aurora excuse me erotica. I thought he had contributed art to something called the bedroom. Companion that had a comic showing. Well, let's just say he contributed to that to that book and as a condition of his contract later on in life. He said, okay, I'll write children's books for you only if you let me write and a dolt book, I the seven lady Godiva story about seven naked women. Yeah. And they're writing on one of his, you know, like signature kind of nondescript beasts, like it's not it's not a horse. It's not up hippo. I don't know. His own things. Get traits of all of those probably got a name like a a marker offer. Some exactly there you go pen, and you know, a stride this creature is two three four five six. Seven naked women of all shapes and sizes. Yeah. In his defensible shapes sizes. Here's the thing we need to defend this this delightful. Well, the book flopped, and he was kind of who's kind of code about it because he had to settle for career as a children's writer. This is a quote from Dr Seuss. Okay. There's not us say it's quote from him. He said, I tried to draw the sexiest babes I could. But they came out looking absurd with the what is the look like Dr Seuss characters. What did he think? There's nothing sexy about them. They've all got like who hair? They're all who've Ian. Yeah. Big time. You can't say the guy was an interesting when did he pass been Dr Seuss actually lived a very long time. He did not pass away until September twenty fourth nineteen ninety one eighty seven years old. I remember that. I remember when it happened. I mean, I was very young when I definitely distinctly. Remember, the death of Dr Seuss, you know, who else another personal legend of ours who passed away recently Stanley true. All right peace, Dan, you know, it's it's strange because I'm sure that he'll still be in cameos for a few more movies because they must have filmed a bunch. I guess they would have had to. Yeah. Since doing a batch and this reminds in his nineties, he did look great. And he also growing up as a kid who didn't have a ton of friends. I think Stanley taught me a ton about reading and really added to my vocabulary. You what I mean? He's he's the guy who brought back Excelsior you keep saying that. I don't know. That means it's like excellent. Oh. Okay. Got it. There were a lot of tributes to him when he passed away over saying Excelsior. I thought it was some sort of stomach medicine. It's used to. I guess it means something of superior quality. Got it like a little more flashy wave saying grey day, number one. But this the reason I'm bringing up Stanley here. Noel is because you and I made a mandate. And we we got a kind of a bumpy start. Our mandate was to recommend comic books. Remember, we did do that. We did you say that we kind of, you know, this is a perfect episode to do that in because I would I would argue that Seuss's kind of graphic novelist in some ways..

"This book that he wrote on a bet is known today as green eggs in hand. And it was thinking there's a there's a neat coincidence here when he has this conversation with Bennett CERF when they make that bet for what fifty dollars right it works out to a dollar a word, which I thought was I don't know if that's on purpose. It's pretty neat. And I think a fifty dollar bet back then would have been a couple of hundred bucks now. Right. Three hundred bucks. Maybe. Yeah. A little maybe a little closer to four hulk. But but yes, so it's it's still a significant amount of money, but to this guy who's a bestselling author. Now, it's not like a maker break thing as far as Bank accounts where where this falls in the in the Dr Seuss bibliography sort of mid career. This was his nineteen sixty when the bekker's so that's right after this three years after cat in the house. Okay. So it's relatively early for sure. And so when he writes this book, we can only imagine that it's a little less of a laborious process because he's already been through it before with cat in the hat. Yeah. Except this is like a little bit more challenging right? This is a pair even limiting his his verbal palate. Even more, right? Yes. We mentioned that this has a one of the brilliant things about this book. Is it does actually have a plot that you can follow? You know, what I mean, there's some tension in there. What's the plot? The protagonist is named Sam. I am. He has Sam Sam he is. Well, yeah. And then there's him right? And then there's this other character who goes nameless. And he sort of sad sack kinda fellow who Sam keeps trying to force him to eat, green eggs and ham. And he proceeds to go through these various scenarios as our buddy the quiz would say we go and the guy just keeps running away from. It's actually kind of. A stalker situation because the nameless. Character is literally trying to escape the Sam IAM who keeps popping up with green eggs. And have you know? And then he's like, you know, what would you do it on a house a car a tree with all these different things with a mouse would amounts change the scene. Exactly, exactly. And at the end of the day there. There's, you know, surrounded by the carnage that's been caused by this dude literally trying to run for for his life from the psychotic Sam. I am character. I mean, really is if you look back at the book now Sam, I am is very sinister he goes hard on his hands. He goes ham. Yeah, he really does. Yeah. And green eggs. And at the end, the moral of the story is the nameless. Grumpy dude eats, the green eggs and ham any likes it writes Sam if you will let me be I will try them. You will see? And then he tries them and say I like, green eggs and ham. I do I like them Sam I am. And then it goes on the refrain flips. Yep. And now he's gonna do it. And all those places bring the mouse, please a FOX you say this green eggs and ham with anything. But I know you can only be a FOX mouse. And what else a goat a goat? Yeah. It's weird. Because if you look at the way things really impressive about this is if you look at just the lyrics or the poetry itself typed out it's four pages long which surprised me because it's four pages. Fifty words. That's right up. It's placement. It's like a. Comic book a lot of these things are like graphic novels. The text is very much incorporated into the design. And you know, let's not forget Seuss wrote this text, and he drew all the images, and he's single handedly responsible for creating these worlds, which are very uniquely him. You know, I think he's pretty interesting artists kind of a renaissance man in that way. I also think it's funny that both ham and goat both have modern-day acronym. Equivalents and cronk, you know, I think he was onto something he was too. We should we should do a deep dive read into the works of Dr Seuss. We also mentioned by the way, the yes, Dr Seuss did succeed. This wasn't like a cat in the hat thing. Where it went a little over his word count. He managed to make a coherent story..

"But. Not in a particularly heavy handed or pedantic way in a way, that's pretty approachable to you know, youngsters or whatever, but still has some pretty important messages. Yeah. I think that's a great point. And one thing one thing that a lot of kids don't know when we're growing up and reading Dr Seuss books is that Theodore himself was allegedly not the biggest fan of children. But he was a really interesting guy. And I think you, and I probably had a similar moment later in life where we realize that his family originally pronounce the name Seuss as sauce legs, e oh, hi c x which I think is a great word Zoe Zoya what I would say. Yeah, he's interesting for a lot of reasons he got his start working in like advertising as cartoonist and there's actually some really problematic cartoons. You can dig up that. He did for like a mosquito spray called like zt or something like that. Or like. Bleep. I don't know. But it's it's like all of these kind of like African jungle scenes with his very recognizable elephant, it looks like something out of one of his books only. It's got a lot of like natives depicted in that horrible way that you see in early. You know, Disney animations or Warner Brothers cartoons. That are now considered completely embarrassing to those companies that are on before all this like classic children's entertainment. The same was true for for for guy. So he also did some propaganda around. You know, the Japanese with some pretty nasty depictions of those folks rewards during World War Two. Exactly. Yeah. He was nothing if not prolific, but we did feel would be remiss on our part if we did not include the less than wonderful whimsical aspects of his life. You know, what I mean, he was a great cartoonist integrate writer, but. Still a person, and you might be surprised to learn the process that he used to write a lot of these books. The guy was so prolific has what over forty children's books, and that's not counting any of his advertisement stuff. That's not counting. The short lived comic strip. He did before called Heggie believe. But the weird thing is while we all kind of I think naturally want to have this romanticized idea of guy who just wakes up in a very bright pastel cartoony house and says what wonderful lessons I teach children today. That's not the case. In fact, there was a lot of calculation that went into the way he wrote books. His first successful children's book was called cat in the hat and the story about cat in the hat is really surprising. It starts with a guy named John Hershey. Who was a a big time journalist and in nineteen fifty four. When writing in life magazine, he put out an article called why do students bog down on first r a local committee sheds light on national problem? Colon reading that was colon..
