It is a pleasure to talk with you and I'm been looking forward to this ever since way just connected. You know that there's just so much we could talk about because of this a project that is such a huge part of American. Well, I guess you could say even Global culture. I mean this thing is reach around the world. And so the original radio adaptation was first broadcast in 1981 and back. In those days you were doing stage acting at the time. Is that correct? That's correct. Yes. I played the leading role on Broadway in Dracula APA Frank langella and did that for over a year and I loved working in the you know, our country's resident Theatres because they're so varied in their approaches to producing plays and then also the theaters themselves very, you know, the little key we do lunch and then they're huge ones and I loved the surprising aspect of of working in different places. Yeah, like your locally we have the Orpheum Theater downtown Phoenix and that is just an absolutely beautiful beautiful theater. Yeah. Yeah. I've been in there. Yes, beautiful never worked there, but yep. Lovely. Yeah. Well, so how did you first hear about the Star Wars project? Well, it was one of those things where I just got a call from my agent and he said that if I was free I was being asked to do a radio adaptation of storm. I said what that is very strange and I guess I had met John Madden once brilliant brilliant director and said he must have been you know on a tight line or something like that, but it just sort of suddenly happened and a couple of days after getting the call. We we started it and it was just a just horrific great son Mark Hamill from the original film was in it then Terry King did dead. How long is solo and Carrie was terrific in that? So it was this something out of the norm for you to get asked to audition for a radio project or or what was that audition process? Like well, there was no addition. I just got called by my agent and they asked me to do it. I guess they must have been kind of dealing with a last-minute schedule or something. But I was asked I could do it and I did it was wonderful. It was a real Joy. Wow. Yeah, just call up and say hey we've got this roll for you. Come do it. Yes, exactly. That's all too rare in the theater and film business. So have you done any other radio projects before this month? Do you know what I I don't think I have I've done radio things but mostly it has to do with interviews and commercials for I was doing but it was a complete surprise and and of wonderful one, huh? That's that's amazing. So the so the film was released in 77 and the radio drama 81. Did you ever think that Star Wars would be such a huge cultural phenomenon as it is today, you know on one level I was I was completely surprised. It's just really the the global phenomenon is something that rarely happens in the world and on another level. It makes perfect sense. It just wage has that you know, the magic. Yeah that that just draws people in and what did you like to work on home? Sure,
The Vampire of Dsseldorf Peter Krten
"As Dusk, fell on February eighth, nineteen, twenty, nine, forty, six, year, old Peter Curtain prowled the bustling boulevards of Dusseldorf searching for his next victim. He stopped outside Saint Vincent's Church, and leaned against the stone wall he watched as Rosa. Olica a young girl of about eight years old sauntered towards him Peter Shot Rosa of friendly smile and asked where she was headed unfortunately. Roseau was unaware that it's often best to stay away from strangers and freely told him her address. Peter. Extended his hand and offered to take the eight year old home as soon as they were alone on a deserted street Peter Seized Rosa by the throat and strangled her aroused by. Her Death Peter Sexually. Assaulted her body however like so many times before sexual abuse was not enough to satisfy him for that. He needed see read Peter pulled his trustee pair of scissors from his coat pocket and repeatedly stabbed Rosa in the chest. He would later claim that only when he saw the gushing blood, did he finally reach sexual satisfaction Peter Stared down at Rosa's lifeless body and noticed that a small wound had formed on Rosa's temple where she hit the ground and it was starting to bleed at the site of the blood Peter was seized by a sinister craving. He pressed his lips around the wound and sucked the blood from Rosa's skull. Peter derived a pleasurable sensation from the act and like when he first killed a sheep as a teenager, it would change his life forever. Vanessa. Is going to take over unless psychology here and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg Peters Consistent Sexual Sadism can be considered a pair of Philip Disorder. This is an abnormal sexual desire that causes harm to others according to the DSM five. They're eight classifications of para phileas and parasitic disorders. Prior to drinking Rosa's blood Peter fell firmly into the category of someone suffering from a sexual sadism para. Philip Disorder. Meaning that he derived sexual pleasure from hurting others but now Peter Succumb to an uncategorized para phillix disorder known as he Motta Linea or the sexual stimulation from blood. This is sometimes referred to as clinical vampirism or R-enfield Syndrome after the character. From. The Novel Dracula. Of course, Peter would never know the name of his disorder. He only knew his taste for blood was more literal than ever before he also suspected that the graphic nature of his crimes would provoke a series police investigation so he needed to tread carefully. Peter decided the best course of action would be to establish an alibi. So while his wife Ow Gustav. Was Out of the House he returned home to inspect his clothes for bloodstains and clean his scissors. Once he was presentable and weapon free he took himself to the movies on his walk home from the Cinema Peter. Thought. It might be a good idea to burn Rosa's body. Not only would this destroy any lingering evidence it would also increase the grisly nature of the crime that night Peter filled an empty beer bottle with the petroleum from one of his lamps then headed back to where he left Rosa but as Peter ventured toward Rosas body, he realized there were too many witnesses to set a fire on detective he hit. The bottle behind a nearby sign and decided to come back later early, the next morning Peter told his wife he was headed to the bathroom, but instead a snuck out the front door of their building he sprinted to the hidden petroleum, grabbed the bottle and made his way over to the hedges where he'd left Rosa's body Peter Poured the petroleum all over. The girl then dropped a lit match onto the corpse as soon as the flames ignited Peter made himself scares within minutes. He was home and crawled back into bed with his wife who was none the wiser a few hours later, construction workers discovered Rosa's charred body but the fire hadn't and Gulf the girl as Peter had hoped only her clothing and. A little bit of her hair had been burned. So she was easily
Who Was Vlad the Impaler
"A time when I didn't know that Vlad. The Impaler was thought to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker's genre-defining vampire Dracula hop in your home school bus police box or phone booth with aerial antenna and let's go back to 15th century will lakia a region of modern-day Romania. That was then the southern Edge over to the province of Transylvania. Our flad was flat the third glad the second his father was given the nickname dracul by his fellow Crusade nights in the order of the Dragon. They were tasked with defeating the Ottoman Empire will lakia was sandwiched between the Ottomans and Christian Europe and so became the sight of constant bloody conflict without looking it up. I'm going to guess that the order of the Dragon failed since the Ottoman Empire was still standing in nineteen twenty-three. Dracul translated to dragon in Old Romanian. But the modern meeting is more like Devil add an a to the end to denote son of and you've got flat Dracula at age eleven flat and his seven-year-old brother Raju went with their father on a diplomatic Mission into the Ottoman Empire. How'd it go? Not too good. The three were taken hostage their captors told Vlad the second that he could be released if his two sons remained behind home since it was really their only option. He agreed the boys would be held prisoner for five years one account holds that they were tutored in The Art of War science and philosophy. Other accounts say that they were subjected to torture and brutal abuse by the time Vlad the second return to Allah Kiya. He was overthrown in a coup and he and his eldest son murdered shortly. Thereafter Vlad. The third was released with a taste for violence and a vendetta against the Ottomans to regain his family's power and make a name for himself. He threw a banquet for hundreds of members of rival families on the menu was wine meet sweetbreads and gruesome vicious murder off. The guests were stabbed not quite to death then impaled on large spikes. This would become vlad's signature move leading to his moniker Vlad the Impaler, but it wasn't the only arrow in his quiver. Facing an army three times the size of his he ordered his men to infiltrate their territory poison the wells and burn the crops. He also hired disease dead-end to go in and infect the enemy defeated combatants were often treated to disemboweling flaying Alive boiling and of course impalement. Basically, you turn your enemy into a kabob and let them die slowly and just as importantly conspicuously vlad's reputation spread leading to a mixing of Legend in fact like that. He wants took dinner in a veritable Forest of spikes. We do know that in June of 1462. He ordered 20,000 defeated Ottomans to be impaled. It's a scale that's hard to even imagine when the Ott's in Sultan mehmed II Came Upon the Carnage he and his men turned on their heels and fled back to Constantinople. You would think flawed was on the road to Victory but shortly thereafter. He was forced into Exile and imprisoned in Hungary. He took a stab no pun intended on regaining will lakia fifteen years later, but he and his troops were ambushed and killed according to a contemporary

What's Next For Metal Gear Solid
"Series is hitting P. C.. J.. Gabe at Gamespot, the military series is hitting. Via Gog. Konami has announced previously only a select few games in the franchise were available outside of consoles the. Games hitting the service either MELA gear bill you're solid and bill your saw to substance were already to in. Taiwan, prior to the official announcement. Malaysia solid and substance actually had come to before and your saw five was also released four PC. But this should give those who never played playstation or xbox a chance to experience more of the Franchise Miller you're solid for to the Patriots remains a PS three exclusive. The new offerings don't seem to have any enhancements and you're getting the original metal gear solid rather than the Gamecube remake which I personally prefer I prefer the original not necessarily the game remains what I'm saying substance dot clear. Yeah. Substance does feature has an extra content not found mill solitudes original release. Releasing as the as collector's series, also be able to get five Castle Dania N. Contra. Games. Including Super See Dracula's curse and Simon's quest these games originally released on the s along with the series along with the Melody Games. The total cost for all titles is thirty two dollars. Tim is very exciting stuff for people who WanNa play these Games on. My one question is, when are we ever going to get your solid for? That's the thing anywhere else anywhere besides the playstation three it's bizarre. I am utterly shocked like back for all the young ones out there which is crazy at this point like even that era, there's probably of people listening to this right now that don't know what I'm referring to but when melanie solid four came out, it was the mean game of when's IT GONNA come to three sixty and it's like, oh, man, how many disc? On. Like nine there was like photoshop shops like xbox three, sixty cases with like that stick. With metal gear solid four on ten million discs But the fact of the actually never came out on another console is really weird and I think a lot of it has to do with the whole Kojima. Konami situation that went down around MCS five, but even then the fact that four wasn't. Like ported at some point. Di Around. With the architecture of the game because I know the game was advertised as a PS. Four game or a PS three game, it was kind of synonymous with. The launch of that console envier to some extent feels very built into like when you're transitioning from chapter to chapter, I remember getting the loading screen of. Solid Snake Smoking, the cigar and you. Believe. There are like tips in there to be like, Hey, you know take a break like the which took awhile. This. Going to take awhile I. Hey, you know relax take a break between sessions all that stuff that stuff seem. Very built into like the PS three system as far as at least like how this stuff look like it looked like a PS three like installation screen as opposed to just an in game thing. So I wonder if there's something about that game in particular that it's tough to port.
What It Was Like to Interview Wil Williams
"Welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discuss their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury? This is a post show episode in which I will speak with a special guest about last week's interview. If you haven't heard that episode in which I talked to podcast, critic and Creator Will Williams, I recommend you go back and listen to that first, and then come back and listen to the post show. Today my guess is Ariel Nissenbaum Latte. Welcome to the show aerial. I am excited to be here. Thank you so much for having me. You texted me asking to be on the show. I responded within ten seconds. Is that right you did did it was so sweet? And I could feel your enthusiasm Azam coming through my phone. I'm so glad an awesome moment. You never know like Don't really have the bandwidth or Don't have the bandwidth down. Nice so you do like one hundred different things in podcasting and so I'd love for you to introduce yourself then. Maybe you can also share with our listeners where you are right now. Yes, says it's unusual. Place I'll do that first so that the people know why. There are some strange sounds going on, so currently I, am at a farm in two harbors Minnesota. Minnesota, which is somewhere near Duluth, which is on Lake Superior, it is beautiful here I'm on a farm because I'm wolfing, which stands for a worldwide organization of organic farming I'm on my way across the US on a road trip and I thought this would be a fun stop, so if you hear chickens or pigs or dogs or cats or children that what's going on. This makes it so much more impressive that you said. Yes, excitedly to my invitation to come on this show. So I started ear. Buds podcast collective, which is a weekly email that sends a theme and five podcast episodes on that theme. Each week is curated by different person I also run a podcast. A companion to that newsletter called feedback with earbud sort of similar to what you do. Sky Inside podcasting newsletter and podcast, and then I also run another podcast called counter programming Sheron an Arielle. It's a distraction casts started during covid nineteen, and we talk about anything having to do with the word count or counter, so Count Dracula step counters, kitchen counters, anything you can imagine. We're also taking suggestions. I also work for cast box. Do Marketing and business development for them? They're podcast APP and then I help with the outlier podcast festival, and then I do anything that pops up. That has to do with podcasts because I love podcasts. It is very very impressive aerial. I'm so glad that you introduced yourself. Because I'm not sure I would have remembered everything so much, so I will also add on the sound front that the city that I live in chose today to pave our street, and so in addition to sounds of cows and pigs and children on areas, and you might hear on my end paving machines, going up and down and beeping, and doing all manner of things just really like twenty feet away from me, although it sounds pretty quiet at the moment, good, Luxemburgo is in charge of editing this. Exactly okay well, let's get to it We are here to talk about last week's show aerial. What? What did you think of last week's show yes? Oh, I know, will for a long time on twitter, and on other social media platforms, so to hear will chat about her work was really enlightening I. Have to admit that I am not the biggest consumer of audio drama slash audio fiction, and so listening to will talk about it was I opening for. For me I learned a lot, and then I learned a lot through you as well, and I imagine it was kind of some new materials you is that right absolutely and I mean that's one of the reasons. I I wanted to talk to her. Was that like you? I haven't listened to as much fiction, but also I think that someone who's making a fiction podcast has a really different the they're coming from a different creative place in some way. And there's obviously other things that are involved casting and you know working with actors is a completely different ballgame, so I was really excited to talk to her. For for that reason as as well as others mean actually I'll just go ahead and say it another reason why I was. Fascinated by what she was doing. Was that like me? She writes about podcast and. You know like Kerr. I decided to take the plunge and make a podcast and when you're writing about them there is this funny thing where you feel like. Is this supposed to sound like no what I'm doing or am I gonNA? Make giant mistake. And there's a little bit of risk I think with her situation. It's more risky than just doing an interview. Show that require scripts and. Things of that nature, but it was still I could still identify with her feelings of. This is a little risky. This is sort of putting myself out there in a way that I haven't put my out myself out there before and so. I felt a kinship with that and was excited to have her on the show for that
HBO Max removes 'Gone With the Wind,' will add context
"Hbo Max there is a move hbo just launched, and it has a pretty impressive movie library, but one of its biggest movies has been removed from the library very quickly after its launch. Brat. Tell us about that. Yes, the Classic Gone With the wind has been taken out of the HBO Max Library for the time, being. Being after a plea from twelve years, slave writer John Ridley in the Los. Angeles Times I asked them to remove it and that's largely because even the gone with the wind is a Hollywood classic It's been you know in the Zeitgeist for the longest time you know, but it's always been criticized for its depiction of slavery It makes it seem like. Slaves were content in loyal to their owners. And it also had plenty of racial stereotypes, and because of that John Really thought that right now is releasing the best time for movie like that to Hbo Max in that. It should be taken off temporarily, but then brought back. With a discussion on it to provide some historical context, so that people understand that this is not an accurate picture of. The antebellum south before the civil war, and that this is not you know slavery as it is in the history books. In really himself says he doesn't believe in censorship, but he wanted this movie to be. Portrayed responsibly. For their part HBO Max, did take it down and they provided a statement. About the racist depictions, and how they were wrong van in the wrong now they actually borrowed some of the verbiage from a disclaimer that they put in front of some looney tunes that they released a home video because there are some classic animated shorts that have. Stereotypical depictions of people of other races, but they had. I think it was will be. Goldberg did like an Intro to explain it and say were presented them uncut because to. Not present them or present them edited would be to deny they ever existed, and so that's basically what needs to be done with gone with the wind, so I think he's a smart move. Obviously, some people are saying comparing this to like burning books are racing history, but obviously since they're going to bring it back at some point with historical context, that's not the case and people need to grow up. You can ask me anyways. To add that is not censorship. If it's a private company taking it out of their circulation, it's only censorship if it's the government, and this is only the free market doing its work as it's supposed to be so i. just think it's really funny when people pull out the. Censorship, when it's not in fact, falls under that umbrella of
The Monster Movie Hall of Fame and 'The Invisible Man'
"Later in the show. I'll have an interview with Lebron L. The writer director of the new updated edition of the invisible man. A movie that shifts the perspective of the classic horror movie to the victim in this case played by the Amazing Elizabeth Moss when Elsa Clever Jonah craftsman and we had a fun chat about how he's reinventing the work of the historic universal monster movies and some of his aides filmaker. Heroes like James Cameron and Paul Hogan and John Carpenter but I I am joined by ringer contributor and one of the best film minds around Adam Neiman. Thanks for joining me Adam. Thanks for having me Adam. We're here to build another wing in the movie hall of fame. Today we said post and beam on the monster movie hall of fame. Now you know monster. Movies are tricky because there are two distinctions between them. One is your classical scare movie that enrapture audiences but maybe doesn't really mean very much and then. The other is the load-bearing bearing metaphorical monster that communicate something to the world about maybe it's ills or human psychology or things of that nature I assume that you are more fan of the latter. But May maybe that's not the case. I think I'm a fan of the ladder when it's less calculated You know the the joke I liked to tell his one day. Someone's GonNa make really good specific movie about a social problem like documentary and then at a press conference the director. She's going to be like this movie's a metaphor for zombies and just waiting for someone to do but I mean I think that in the last couple years because you have some like Jordan. Peele who has spoken not in terms of monster movies but in terms of horror movies. He's talked about you. Know his office for those social thrillers or Social Horror Movies and the metaphorical dimension to them. And so you know because monsters are a subset of horror movies as you say a delivery device for for scares those streams often do cross but yeah. I think some of the best monster movies of all time are definitely ones where monsters represent something whether it's something inside or outside society or something inside or outside people but I'm also just a a big fan of movies. Where like spooky things jump out at people in eat them? So it's a IT'S A. It's a fine balance before we get started on constructing this this list that we've put together here. Do you remember your first monster movie experience at the movie. That felt like a monster movie to me and I mean it it is a monster is when Pinocchio gets swallowed by the whale. Oh yeah which is. Obviously you know I mean there's a biblical reference there to to Joan in the whale and it's You know like for for for kids. Who Who who see Pinocchio? That whale is just nightmarish and terrifying and and gigantic. I mean my dad. I think that's the first movie he ever told you to. Took me to it. Just absolutely scared the hell out of me that and the giant squid in Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. Same thing oh great both Some Disney spun con there. Well done by in and and you. Well I'm thinking about Pinocchio as you say it and the thing that scared me more than the whale is the sequence in which the boys turn into donkeys boys which is just absolutely disturbing and also kind of metaphorical in its way Not to put too fine a parasite point on it I'm trying to think of my first true scary movie experience. I feel like what I got two young Frankenstein before I got to Frankenstein in. It's funny. How when something like that happens how it can obscure your relationship to movies and I think it actually made me Not so much scared movie theaters but just just sort of happy and smiling and laughing. I tend to laugh at horror movies and monster movies because I get kind of perverse thrill out of them and I so I if young Frankenstein. Ken Count that would be. That would be my number one. I mean obviously. I saw a bunch movies that we'll talk about here on this list that a very young age. And maybe that's an opportunity to just go right into it. So here's what we're going to do. We'RE GOING TO GO CHRONOLOGICALLY. So there's a long history. I would say monster. Movies are essentially as old as movies themselves. So we're going to try to walk through. Essentially I don't know eighty ninety years of movie history and try to capture. What are the absolute most representative interesting compelling fascinating monster movies ever made and the monsters? I think the conversation should really be about the monsters inside of the movies and why they're so effective as devices for either sending those messages or just scaring the shit out of us. So you chosen five. I've chosen five. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA Ariffin vamp little bit. Why don't you give me your first pick going all the way back to the nineteen thirties? Sure and you know it's interesting because now when we've got it arranged chronologically we've got this this interesting blindspot which. Kinda be filled in as we go along. Which is we've both bypassed. The true initial cohort of Universal Monster. Movies right the very late twenties very early thirties because the first movie on my list is King Kong. So I have bypassed Dracula Frankenstein you know bride of Frankenstein Which are all these enduring literary properties that have been made and remade for a long time and I think the thing about King Kong. It just feels like the primal scene for me of monster as spectacle because he's not human sized right. He's not an actor costume he's not You know someone doing an accent or wearing makeup. He's a special effects creation and the thing about the original King Kong. Every time I watch it is. It is just so spectacular visually. In an analog era. You know the the integration of those stop motion special effects into old sets and the exaggerated camera angles on the actors and just the the surrealism of it. I've read that. The actual surrealists the the practicing artists within that within that movement re huge fans of King Kong for one thing. 'cause monster just keeps changing size. You know it's inconsistent it's inconsistent but it's also just stunning because from scene to scene you know when he's just represented by giant hander giants foot or the close ups on the is and then you can also still cut backing these establishing shots and seeing him in these different environments and. I think it's the way also that it goes from this primal island to this urban city. The monster in his home context. And then sort of you know thrashing around in the middle of maternity causing chaos. It's just like the deepest the deepest core horror fantasy. You know that that that I can think of I. I just think it's absolutely astonishing and I never tire of watching it. It's funny I think a lot of the monsters on our list Get repeated and reused and re contextualize over and over again the thing with King Kong is is the actual character of King Kong comes up over and over and over and over again. We're getting another King Kong movie this year. And for whatever reason I would say between King Kong and Godzilla. Those are really the only two significant monsters that we never tire of somehow. That don't don't expire. You know I think that the idea behind what King Kong represents and there's obviously been an extraordinary amount of both academic critical just fun writing about What happens when colonialists enter a less developed world and attempt to steal things from it But in addition to that it is this grand spectacle and we talk a lot on the show about is. It doesn't move. You have a reason to be seen in a movie theater. Then I feel like the original King. Kong is is one of the landmark achievements and you have to see this on a giant screen. There's nowhere else for to be seen. We'll for sure. I maybe just in terms of bridging King Kong with those other brand name monsters of the period he in genders the same kind of complex sympathy. That you have with Boris. Karloff Frankenstein. Right I mean you even have a rhyme in those two movies wherein Frankenstein. He picks the little girl up by the river without doing what he's doing. And you know drowns her accidentally and certainly king kongs intentions towards Aren't violent. They're they're in his sort of chivalrous or desirous or somewhere in between there. I think the reason he endures an even the point that God's Zilla as a character eventually got bent in King kongs direction because the original godzillas dot anthropomorphized sympathetic at all. And then over the years. And they made Godzilla more like King Kong. I think being inside that sort of like destructive force but you're also misunderstood and you're more a victim of circumstance than anything else that's a really appealing escapist fantasy for filmgoers even thinking the original King Kong as terrifying as it is and as brutal as the violences like a people have never seen it. He smush is people into Goo on screen. You know You're still with him and I think that that's a really great monster. Movie needs on some kinds of great monster movies that you need that possible level of identification or sympathy. So it's not just purely a nightmare. I think the original King Kong does that just just amazingly well. So you're next pick actually doesn't do the former thing that you were just describing which is there's no crushing there's no Gu. There's no absolute violence of a kind in your next week. What's your next movie? The next movie I have is is cap. People which is part of a cycle of really low key atmospheric horror movies produced in the mostly in the nineteen forties. Bhai guy named Val Luton and I would say that if you get a chance to see Ken. Jones documentary thou loot man in the shadows. I think it's the best documentary I've ever seen about a filmmaker at particularly about how Luton changed horror movies by using the lack of a budget. And the lack of franchise -able characters. You Know He. He didn't have the roster that universal was working with all these all star. You know horror icons so he made it less more. It's the it's the the the the cinema of of of suggestion and scary around the edges. But it's also movie about people transforming into cats I. It's a booby that plays the the ambiguity of is this or isn't this real up. You know for for a long time but it really does give over to the idea that the main character the heroin does when stimulated or afraid you know actually transform into A cat due to this this this Eastern European mysticism and it's also a movie. I'm sure they'll come later. That gets remade in the eighties and completely liberalised because instead of just talking with someone turning into a cat or remembering someone turning into a cat you actually see it on screen with with special effects and it's It's less effective to me. Do you do you like the Paul schrader version that you're describing the eighties version. I like the Paul schrader version. Because it's wild acid trippy. Paul schrader horror movie. And it's it's glory and it's actually not as full-on like latex hydraulic special effects. His other movies from the period. But I I love the original are you are you. Are you fond of the delude films directed by Jacques Turner? Who did a bunch of the other ones is it a? Is it a a a source of Phantom for you it is? I saw cat people and the Leopard men in a couple of them many many years ago and then actually over Halloween this year my wife and I were looking and you know as I get older Halloween. Getting more and more difficult to program. If we're not gonNA rewatch something. But we watched a couple movies. We watched The criterion collection had the ghost ship which I had never seen which I thought had. It has a very similar approach to kind of What's happening in the shadows? Which is most of his films are using that strategy of not showing the thing and then I watched by myself. The body snatcher and both of them. I thought were pretty great. I mean I this is also a case where I I. I probably saw Kent Jones's documentary before seeing any of the films and while that was a great thing for my film education it also kind of warped perception of the movie because I was seeing it as a kind of intellectual exercise in a way where I understood technique as opposed to some of these other movies that we're GonNa talk about here where I just happened to be nine years old when I saw it in a completely reorganized my brain chemistry in a way but I do like his movies. And especially this one that you've chosen well and then also just the last thing to say but it may be that because it's not special effects and spectacle it anticipates where horror movies would go in the sixties with the idea of the monster within right. I mean here. It's not a an invading apor vampire. It's the idea of a woman who's subconscious and her inner life motivates this transformations client about the link between monstrous and desire and monstrous and repression. Which is why it tends to be. You Know Pretty Beloved Academically but I mean by the sixties. Neither US talk about these movies. But you start having the idea of the human monster in movies like psycho or whatever else and you can kind of trace aligned from the way cat. People stages horror towards that stuff. I think I think that's right. And I think it's probably a capitals nifty double feature with the peg for this film the invisible man because that movie is also as much about.
Hellboy talk with Tim
"Are seeing more of change. I think in response to books like Hell Boyer Black Hammer. Where because there is a firm time line and things are happening characters have to react to the things that are happening even if they don't have full context for what's happening so that's what you like about hell boy be. Pr General. Think helpful like you said Houston's Gone Yeah Houston's gone what are you GonNa do hell boy died? What are we going to do? And that's another thing stopped me please. If I'm going off the rails in the world of hell boy. Bpd WHAT HAVE YOU? Death is final unless it isn't and what I mean by that is when like okay but speculate for just a second over. I'm going to spoil recent events in Batman that's okay. I'll put spoiler at the beginning. The Alfred was killed by Bain in Batman a couple months ago Alfred. Dying is a huge deal. It's a very good story. I'll be really hard pressed to say in five years. We're not going to have comics with Alfred. M I think we'll see Alfred Comeback in the hell boy world if there was a a character analogous to Alfred. If he died he'd be dead. There's only been three characters I can think of who haven't stayed dead One of them is Huma Hunky list which is hard work as say I can read it forever. A monkey lists named Roger. Who's liveability is questionable? At best the other two and I could be wrong as well like I'm not concrete giving you information but This based off the best of my recollection the the other two characters would be Rasputin. Who is the main villain and Hell boy himself and when hell boy is brought back it's not his choice. There was There was a thing that I want to say. Scott Allie who was an editor and a writer on BP said is If he said death is final and things will break and if things are repaired they will still remain broken. So if you like break glass table you can put that glass table back together. It's not going to be as strong as it was. And that's kind of a tenant and B P R D if we're gonNA break it we can put it back together but it's not gonna be the same as a storyteller in a fan of of character the way hell boy and it's related books handle stakes is so it's so unlike anything else you're gonNA find in modern pop culture and he loves. Mike loves the supernatural world. Because I hadn't read hell boy before but I read Joe Gholam which is one of my aches works and it has a very supernatural tinder taste to it for lack of a better word but he really loves that supernatural world when I was reading up about how he came up with hell boy and the Supernatural. In general he started. Reading Brahms stroker's Dracula and just got sucked into the all. The supernatural world and missed. Go along with that and even see that. In Gotham by gaslight. Yeah I think that's where he got a lot of this inspiration because like you said. Eprdf just kind of a supernatural monster story arc on each in how he tries to solve this mystery so to speak. But I really like those like you said the BP because they're short. In general. At least the ones I read are fairly short. They're kind of wins a call because they take place in the past share. Well it's it's interesting because Mike men ULA has trusted so many people with his world. Geoff Johns has written for PR. D- we've got Chris. Roberson does a lot of stuff Scott. Allie Gabriel Bah and Fabio Moon. Who ARE TWINS? They've done some work on a book called. B P R D vampire. Let's just phenomenal. It's so good Abe Sapien had his own series for awhile and there were another set of twins that were working on the art in that and their names escape me off hand but pitch perfect. They're wonderful the those twin they're now working on Lucifer for DC like the the Black Label Sandman books but It's just so good There's a horror comic called Herro county that's written by. Cullen Bunn the art and that is done by Tyler Crook and there was a tiny little bit of animosity because Tyler Crook was the second main artists on E. P. R. D. And when he went over to do Harrow County kind of left He left the crew in a bit of a bind and everybody was a little upset but also he's doing the work of his career on. Harrow. County That's how we got Lawrence Campbell as the main artist on be prd through throughout the run of like hell boy traditionally the art in that is either Mike Minneola or Mike. Minneola esque yes. There's a there's a very good so pretty still pretty rough so to speak but it I think it fits in his universe. Yeah it absolutely does. If we're not getting Mike Manolo. We're getting somebody like Dunkin for Griego who has a very manolas style over. Mvp what we got was a completely different visual. Take and we had guy. Davis was the main artist for play frogs. Hell on earth. We saw Tyler Crook and then going into the devil you know we had Lawrence Campbell. And they bright. They brought a very interesting like real world. Visual take on what Mike Minneola drew as more than esoteric stylized monster world and just like injected it with like this fierce ground level realistic take in it so to to see how Lake Dunkin for draws Abe sapien versus how Mike Minneola draws EP and versus. How Tyler Crook Draws Abe sapien versus? It's so it should not narrative Lee speaking work. It shouldn't do it Michael did a whole issue of of that. We have a painted issues that are done by just masters of their art. And it's it's so wonderful and and just the fact that you can have these visual styles who divorced from divorce from the words divorce from the writing you would never know that just because this character looks a little more cheesy in. This character. Looks a little more realistic. There is no. There's no what if in the hell boy universe whenever you read a story As far as the comics the short stories are a little different. There's pros and all that but we're talking about the comics there's not Lak- what if Abe Sapien was fighting in World War. Two like it's there's none of that every everything you read actually happens To those characters in the world of hell boy and having such unique creative voices all working in tandem to tell this one epic it should not by any right work and if it does work it should not work nearly as well as this does and it is so much fun it does. It's a fun a fun book. Speaking of you talked about Abe Sapien. What is your favorite character from hell boy? Do you bomb or is it a cop out answer cop out answer and then maybe might cop out. Answer is Every every major comic book company I believe has a trinity of some kind so. Dc Has Batman. Wonder Woman Superman Marvel's got Captain America. Thor and iron man You could argue. That image has spawned in which blade and someone else that I can't think of offhand For Hell boy it's definitely you've got an expansive universe of characters but it comes down to Abe Liz in hell boy and if I get one of those three I'm going to have a good time and be in for completely different reasons there so three very different characters In the in the Gemmell del Toro movies. They had a romance between. Liz and hell boy does not exist in the comics. That's not a thing If anything Liz and Abe kind of have an unspoken thing that nobody ever acts on and that's kind of cool because you've got fire and water and that's like a neat neat thing like that. Yeah it's really fun. But if you were like gun to my head me pick a character man. It's GonNa be a tie between it's GonNa be a tie between Captain Daimyo from be PRD. Who is in the newest? Hell boy movie. He's the the wear Jaguar. I love him or Johann Johann Krauss whose an echo plasma ghost in a in a sealed suit don't make can't choose between those two a close honorable mention would be roger but I can live without roger it's fine but But no I love and that goes to the military guy in me I love. Diageo is a traditional military guy and he is just he's hired basically to militarize the PRD and get them to work as a cohesive unit and he just comes in and he's like all right. Look I'm done I'm done like I cannot handle. Whatever it is you guys are doing. I need you all. Just cut your drama. And let's do this. And he just has no time for any of the. He's he's not ignorant to the fact that he's working with monsters he's he gets to the point where he's like. I don't care that you're monsters. We have work to do. And I absolutely love that. And then Johann who was voiced by Seth McFarland and the second held boy movie the The Golden Army In the comics he is so flawed that he is. He's the most fun to read. Because you you just like him you just like him and he makes some really dumb stupid mistakes but they're mistakes that you could see yourself making and you see some emphasis me speaking of myself when I say you but I see so much of myself in him that when he makes a mistake. I'm like own own. No real world content is one hundred percent what I would do and we would all be in so much trouble So I absolutely adore the dichotomy of those two and they don't get a wall but No it's my it's A. It's a complete cop-out I answered it twice with no actual answer. That's okay. I like the fact that like you said it is kind of whimsical. Boys Got A. Would you say it dry sense of humor? I would say Ri- I think is is not so much dry it's like. He knows he knows what he's just so he's just kind of he's perpetually forty and he could you imagine being being against. I'm in my late thirties. Man If you just I would be unstoppable if I had energy and I see hell boy as just perpetually old enough to know better young enough to not care and he kind of can get away with

"Nina moved from her own chair to her husband's lap up. She held him shaking. Oh Jonathan now was the time he could tell her the full truth about the count don't but his tongue was led in his mouth. Meena broke the silence. How was your trip? What was the count Mike? Jonathan Jonathan swallowed. He was haughty cold merely focused on business. I had to be Meena China. I need you to trust me. He withdrew the book vampires and his diary from his coat as he did so he tore tore the cover off so meena couldn't read the title. He said there are things a man must endure alone things he must move past. You are so very dear to me. I'm going to leave my notes in your possession so you may read them if you so wish. But but Meena I implore you do not read this book no need to worry. You're beautiful mind over. The ills of the Carpathians Meena frowned. Then she reached for the candle. The flame lit up her face. I'll do as you ask to show my face and my I love. I'll seal the books with wax so you'll always look on them and know. My Trust is never broken. Meena Poured Candle handle wax along the outer pages of the books. She pressed her wedding ring into the wax forming a seal on each. I swear not you. My Love will never speak of these past months again. Jonathan kissed her forehead. They picked at their dinner both without out much appetite and went to bed early the next morning. Nina was reading the paper. While Jonathan Prepared for work with Mr R-enfield jailed. He assumed he'd report to another senior solicitor. He had the countersigned house deed and was eager to be paid. He shaved saved noting that the red marks on his neck had yet to fade. Jonathan ran his razor over them then he sliced just a small cut a line of blood connecting the two wounds now l.. There'd be no question it was a shaving accident he could forget the original cause entirely. Jonathan was mopping up his blood. When Meena called for his attention it was so lovely to hear her voice again? Oh did you hear a ghost. Ship came into the harbour last last week. All the men were dead. The only thing on the ship were rats and rabid dog. Jonathan called back how Morbid. What was the cargo Meena rustled pages of the paper? Let me see here The cargo oblong boxes filled with dirt dirt some agricultural interest. I suppose I feel sorry. For those poor sailors Meena prattled on her voice fading behind Jonathan's thoughts all blong boxes filled with dirt coffins filled with dirt. It couldn't be there was no way accept the deed. How could he have not realized they'd signed the Damn Deed the count needed? No more invitation Haitian than that. Jonathan ran to the bedroom window looking across the street to the neighbouring house. The house he'd sold to the vampire from the window across the street. The mount stared back at him up up next Jonathan and Mina face down the vampire. Now back to the story. One of the scariest parts of an incurable viral disease is the feeling that one cannot run far enough or fast enough to escape exposure. If one such disease breaks out on a ship tip. The options are to die on board or drown in the ocean when everyone's made their choice. They're only ghosts left to steer the ship ship giving it the name ghost ship one of the most famous ghost ship tales comes from thirteen hundreds when a ship arrived in a Norwegian Aijun harbor. The story goes that it's only living. Passengers were rats and those rats brought the black plague to Norway the legend and of this ship and hundreds of others struck fear in people's hearts for centuries through the nineteen twenties most international trade and travel was was done via ships commercial aviation wouldn't become common until the aftermath of World War Two anyone living in port city at that time likely we lived with the fear that a ghost ship would sail into the harbor bringing with it a new infectious disease. But in the TALE OF DRACULA The the ghost ship has a passenger among the rats. A vampire among the crew of corpses one would walk again. He weeks had passed since Jonathan returned and the ghost ship docked in the harbor but there was still still cloud over the Harper's some barrier Meena couldn't break as much as she and Jonathan wanted their lives to be ordinary again. They simply weren't. She began to wonder if the only reason her sleepwalking stopped was because she was no longer sleeping wing. It didn't help that. There was something off about their new neighbor. Meena tried not to judge by appearances though he looked very ill. Aw Dying even past that. He spent hours each night staring out the window. Meena couldn't help but feel like he was staring back at her when the neighbor wasn't in the window she often saw him walking around at night carrying a big rectangular box. He seemed to never leave home without it. Jonathan acted as if everything was fine. Save one mention of keeping the bedroom. Curtains closed and staying away from the windows. That was all meena needed to hear to know. He agreed about their neighbors Neighbors Strangeness and Desired No Further Discussion on the matter since the fateful trip. He refused to speak on the specifics of his job job. Even when Mr R-enfield escaped prison was caught and escaped again. The city of Breemen went under quarantine in hopes. It's no one would catch r-enfield mysterious illness every night. They both slept in garlic wreaths and said nothing of it in the morning. Think things might have gone on this way forever. If Lucy padden died the loss of MENA's best friend was devastating. Aiding but even more upsetting was the manner in which she died. Lucy had wasted away slowly growing Paler by the day. Odd Red marks on her neck until one night she was no more menas spoke to the constable and learned that Mr R-enfield had had similarly strange red marks on his neck. Then she saw the marks on Jonathan. He said he cut himself shaving but shaving accidents always healed. These didn't Meena could no longer stand it. When Jonathan was at work she broke broke the seal on his book and read his Journal? She learned how the count held him captive and drank his blood. How Jonathan I thought? He escaped but accidentally allowed the vampire to follow him back to take up residence next door. She she picked up the other book ripped off the wax and read the title page. The book of Vampires Meena quickly came to three conclusions since her neighbor had been watching her. That same neighbor was the mysterious count. Jonathan visited and the count was a vampire fire..

"And traditional Romanian folk beliefs to illuminate the monster on stor that struck terror in people's hearts in the nineteen twenties. Vampires have a long and buried history and will return to explore other aspects and and depictions of this creature in future episodes. The skittering of rats preceded him Meena reminded herself to breathe trembling as she pretended to be fast asleep and easy victim a willing victim. She'd put up no fight and allow the monster to ravage her. It was the only way Meena had learned the truth that afternoon and what. Jonathan didn't want her to know about their new neighbor. The one who wouldn't stop looking at her. Jonathan reminded her to never undress. It's near a window. Even with the shades drawn combined that with the quarantine and Meena felt like zoo animal. It made her stir crazy at first she worried she was coming down with the plague herself but she didn't feel sick instead. She felt mad and inactive madness. She ruined everything she read the book. She swore not to open breaking the wax. She'd sealed with her wedding ring by breaking the vow. She invited chaos into her home. Now there was only one way this could end while her husband slept. She signaled the monster through the window. Come to me come take me come. The shadows snuck in the back door. He crept up her stairway ready to catch her on guarded.

Aaahh!!! Classic Monsters
"We thought we would talk. Hello Classic movie monsters or I guess. A derivative thereof You know all the films like Frankenstein Dracula creature the Black Lagoon and salon boy. Oh boy so yeah so we are. Actually we each picked one classic creature. We're going to be sharing history in details about that creature in the story about the story about them so should we. Should we drinks. Yeah okay so I'm going to actually hand the mic over to Tracy and you because I she has forty drinks that she's going to be sure they're all so I'm focusing on vampires and at total wine there was actually quite a bit to choose from uh-huh depending on how elaborate you WanNa get with the topic. There was even like walking dead wine assume that seemed like sheeting. That seemed like that would be better for his. Obviously yeah it's because it's actually from the TV exactly. So I can't have rick on the cover and be thinking of Bram Stoker works for me with that said that I brought three drinks because being hungover and being two o'clock in me not having lunch it just seems weird like crack. Open a bottle of wine right now but I do have Francis Coppola diamond red plans talk a little bit about Coppola going on. Because you can't really talk about Dracula directly without talking about Coppola and then I also because I don't like I said if I'm going to open that I also brought four. They use my teeth to pull the bag out. I have a lovely temper neo. Oh I love to drag on. And we'll talk a little bit about what dragons dragons relates reverse dragged him the vampire at least in literature but like I said that's a bit heavy so honestly what I think I'm going to start with. Breath is a nice blood. Orange Margarita and S- To serve it in as they said I just live seven houses down I brought on my own Hamilton Sippy Cup when I say Hola pouring that that's awesome chewing that All amazing choices see. That doesn't take a random rationalization cody did you notice that mixture. You have doesn't actually have to kill it in it. Oh I I forgot I also brought my own patrol. Never leave home without it. So the monster I chose today is Where wolves so what? I'm drinking today. Is a Lithuanian heritage. Beer called where wolf it's literally called Werewolf and it has a quite a high alcohol content. So that's so funny because just right before for the show Tracy and I were talking about how we like picking drinks. That aren't just the name. They require narrative. Chris here's where we'll there's nothing with that sound so bitchy all right so Chris is still looking to see what kind of beer is is it. Strong connect have a taste. Today makes one of us. Oh that is delicious is really good. That's dangerous Oh my God. I'm just GonNa Covet this break a command. It's a Belgian dark El okay. I'M GONNA try that too. Yeah so for my drink. I'm actually Old England. I'm actually doing Frankenstein. And so and that was that was what I was GONNA do. I was I went into English. Oh I hear terrible and like you know what. I just can't drink this after my night. I'm going to get something good. Mary Shelley found something actually liked Mary. Shelley well well I whenever you look at all these old stories. I what I think of it is. They all kind of intertwined sometimes in ways and they're just kind of these wild crazy stories stories. So I've found a blackberry merlot called twisted Vine Ohio. Yeah good expected to get a couple. I rolls maybe like really all right so with that I will get into history I didn't want to do anything like Hollywood movie. Poor history because that would have been very long and excessive in instead I thought I would give a weird overview on the history of monsters the word monster itself derives from the Latin word monstrum meaning to demonstrate or monarch meaning to warn There's also the Latin word monstrum which Just means abnormal or supernatural but can also mean wonder or miracle generally speaking monsters are physical whether real or imagined representation of those things society as Dean leaned unknown or unnatural and most mostly those things that we fear and cannot explain physically. Speaking a monster may have some unusual characteristics. In fact one time things such as two-headed cavs or babies born with abnormalities were considered monsters so basically anything that was outside of what society claimed as quote. Normal aw was seen as monstrous of course as we know in addition to the physical characteristics. Munster's we'll do some terrible things or act out on the way beyond the standing of society being set that any one of us in this room could be considered a monster me with my blue hair and you both being super tall me with my gay so monsters there's all of you There are a ton of tons of monsters that go back in history. There were monsters that were found in cave paintings represented by animal human hybrids which unlikely cliches in real life hence monsters or at least at the conclusion that historians drew in Greek and Roman mythology monsters were perceived as a form of displeasure from the gods examples being cyclops Gorgon. Medusa Centaurs Sirens and so on. It seems that in religion like Judaism Christianity and Islam. They avoided talking about monsters aside from stories related to Satan and the power of evil in Hinduism monsters. A lot more prevalent. you see gods depicted with extra limbs or as an animal human hybrid and in native American culture. You have creatures such as the Wendy Go. Skin walkers and even sasquatch after the renaissance period with science becoming a new a fairly new thing. It really tried to attempt to explain what exactly monsters were to no avail in the gothic period we were graced. With two of the most infamous monsters Frankenstein and Dracula as well as some of the creepiest fairy tales by the brothers Grimm in psychology. Carl Jung tried to explain monsters as any central part of development might in that they were seen as the quote otherness within ourselves. I kind of discussed with this with you. Cody Day in that how I was talking how we need to balance the light with dark so I think that's the same thing it's arguing and our gang. We all have a fascination with monsters. This podcast is an example. Cody are armchair. Chair crypto zoologists. That even if these creatures don't exist it's that innate curiosity of the possibility of their existence as society changes the faces of monsters changing. We'll continue you to do so when before we used to be freed of things like trolls and elves. Today's where we fear things such as candyman or to say that once monsters collection of our society and then all the terrible things in it as well as an escape from those terrible things monsters are ever evolving and as long as we have fears and terrible things going on in our world they will. Oh not go away in my opinion. That's escapism at its best interest inc.. I have like a believer skeptic question but I guess I wanNA save it maybe. For debunk okay. But I'm afraid that I'm going to. I'm going to forget it. I'm going to ask now for both of Y'all are there any monsters or creatures that either of you actually believe in. Yes yes. That's probably what got me. Hooked on your podcast in the first place you were immediately talking about things that I have seen with my own eyes so I can only to Chris as a believer in many of the things. He's seen. Yeah I'm sitting there at work. Listen to going. Oh my God I saw that too says yes shadow people. I can't talk about that right now. Is Definitely I've had encounters encounters with shadow people. But as far as what we're talking about today. The closest is a boyfriend who thought he was a vampire. Oh Shit are you talking about that in your story. No I wasn't going to because it's complicated and messy advocates network. Deep Ball Game L.. Dated someone who thought he was a vampire sidelining. I think he was just really sexually confused. Needed to explore some things and that arena. He had seen the horror many

Welcome to travel with Rick Steves thank you so we have this historic character Vlad tempest shore or Vlad Dracula Nickname Vlad the impaler and then there's the romantic Character Dracula from the Bram Stoker Book who who is who who's real and what's The story here well Vlad Dracula was a fifteenth century Princeton doc yet today's Romania and he was principal lucky during a very challenging time the Ottomans were encroaching from the south and the Hungarian empire was coming in from the North West and they were just kind of like a little tiny grape waiting to be squashed and Vlade rather than allow himself to be Scott washed he he went on the offensive he mentioned to broker an agreement with the Hungarians and then he went after the Ottomans and literally scared them away impaling people and yes did he drink their blood after Dracula died there was a lot of writing about this guy and he even further violence very different time he was notably sadistic and so- writers from Germany and Russia far off in decades after he died they'd be writing these tales about him and they embellished quite a bit he is guilty of a lot of terrible things but he was never known to be cannibalistic okay so this was a time when when there was brutal tactics by being people would torture reach they would cut off their heads and put him on pikes and so on how was Vlad exceptional he he was just very creative for lack of a better word word with killing people and it was psychological warfare you know the Ottoman Empire had his little principality outnumbered three to one so he took it to another level and succeeded I he ultimately died of course in the Ottomans eventually made it all the way to the gates of Vienna couple of centuries later while he was alive he he was a legend almost you you've had more eloquent justification of this cruel bloodthirsty Vlad the impaler ruler of this little country by just saying hey he it was squashed between Hungary and the Ottomans and it was the way he could keep his tribe from becoming wiped out you wrote in your book some very uncreative dirty tricks that he used I mean he actually dressed people up with leprosy in the plague and sent them to mingle with the enemy yeah he did that and it was extremely successful and it is believed to be the earliest or one of the earliest known uses of germ warfare Romania's wide open it's part of the e U Now it's perhaps the poorest country in the EU wide open and traveling there is very straightforward you don't need a visa or anything like that you'll find comfortable hotels it's super affordable what are the Dracula's heights. I mean a lot of what we think about Dracula is you know fanciful but there's actually honest to goodness Dracula Site Oh yeah a lot of them have survived they built things back then to last and so for example his boyhood home in Singapore where he was born and lived until he was a toddler that is still standing a restaurant and the princely court at target of each day where Vlade and his father and his grandfather that's where their princely court was and it was a formidable fortress and castle at the time and large portions of those ruins are still standing and of course then there's DRACULA'S CASTLE THE REAL DRACULA's Castle up in the mountains right at the underwear will Akia connects with Transylvania at it was an important pass at the time and new strategic he built a castle there and ruins of that are still standing and what's the name of the castle it's called pointe-noire the at the end is silent so P. O. E. N. A. R. I that's Dracula's real castle and the most popular among tourists of all the sates has segers Shera which is an amazing little dramatic town nestled in the in the hills of Transylvania brand castle has the most tourism of any it dragged on site what's with Brand Castle and its association with Vlad The impaler well as with a lot of things in the fifteenth century the details are a little not but so there's several different versions of this story but all of them basically agree that probably visited there but didn't spend much time there in he may have even been briefly imprisoned there but yes apart from spending a few nights there either as a guest or a prisoner he that was the beginning of in of his association with around castle but wouldn't you say of of all the money spent on Dracula tourism maybe half of it is spent at Brown Castle Oh certainly it it you know on its own is a an incredible attraction and because of that certain people kind of maybe over blow the Association with Dracula just to squeeze out a few extra tourist dollars Dracula t shirts and one it's beautifully situated castle but the interior really goes back to the nineteen twenties when it was a getaway for Romania's royal family is kind of a rustic country retreat and it's quite an the visit just in that regard but I would say just finding the Romania of Dracula time would be a good challenge for the travelers with we're getting too hung up on the scant remains of places that were directly associated with Dracula talk about Romania in the fifteenth century where my we go today to get a sense of Romania from that age well that is kind of the rub the Best Dracula surviving track sites are not in the most traveled areas so you got to really be you're gonNA have to rent a car targovichte point are citadel those places are not on the tourist trail it's Brown castle and then signatura where you're gonNA find all the tourists and those are great but those you know again Dracula moved away from cigarettes when who's three and hugh only temporarily stayed at Brown castle if you WANNA get into some real dracula stuff you have to get in a car in and really just go for it this is travel talking with Life Pederson Life Book is backpacking with Dracula on the trail of lab the impaler and the vampire that he inspired so explain the action life please between the historic Vlad Dracula and Dracula that came out of Bram Stoker's book well there is some debate about that for a long time it was believed that Prompts Stoker Studied Flattish Flawed Dracula closely modelled his vampire monster after this guy I mean if you compare the two probably WLAC Dracula killed more guys in his lifetime than the vampire but there's now a new evidence to suggest that Braham may not have own so much about Dracula I mean obviously saw the name and and quite happily adopted it but there's some argument that he just knew a passing amounts about the prince and instead based his vampire on previous characteristics of vampires the vampire storytelling at the time was very popular so bram stoker was just kind of dredging through different legends and scary stories from that region in the Middle Ages and not necessarily based on one character yeah it there's theories that he he builds the character of Count Dracula from numerous people that he was hanging out with their in the late nineteenth century including his boss he worked at a theater for twenty something years and the boss of the theater who was also the lead actor was this tall gangly guy with a hooked nose and thin gaunt Oh called hundred pratice Romanians he's right up there at the top it despite all his atrocities he's considered kind of like a great combination of robinhood and Rambo defended Romania in in an impossible situation what about vampires just in general how what is the historic basis of all the focus on vampires the vampire higher superstition that in all of Eastern Europe that goes way way back there was a time where people believed it was true and they believed it so much that and the doubters Kinda came around like actual doctors sent from Vienna to investigate stuff going on in Serbia they they went home and reported that vampires were the real thing and they had to start planning for the inevitable vampire horde and the core storytellers.
Who Would Win Dracula vs Cyborg
"Could not be more excited about this particular match up you know we talk about what I want to see out of battles me this Guy Ray I wanna see Contra asked of styles I wanna see to roughly matched characters fighting each other who aren't exactly the same we've talked before on this show many times sick and tired of the pedantic Green Arrow versus Hawkeye battle I'll always go back to his just who cares they're both the same dude yawn yawn bar Searle Wretch I'm over it what I wanna see is an ancient Vampire Count Dracula versus the cybernetic hero from the future org these are two class of styles but still very very compelling as a match up the this matchup reminds me of the first. UFC days where you would have you know the karate master versus the Kung Fu master or the jets jitsu versus the shoot fighter this one each of these characters clearly stays within their lane Cyborg doesn't dabble in the supernatural and I really don't think Dracula kind of goes over to the technological outside either I don't think he's ordering stuff on Amazon now that's he's definitely not neuberger either no no no no now to kind of help us with this debate we needed the think outside the box for judges and ray you had a great suggestion to bring someone in who when you think of contracting styles you think if someone who can kind of wrap their heads around the cultural impact of each character you brought up someone's name why thought was absolutely genius you can you can go ahead and Gush your guts out because what you're trying to say here's we needed somebody a little smarter for this episode and that's what I got for you definitely smarter than you and I and I think that's exactly what we got it's not saying it's not I know I I'm not saying doc I'm just not saying that you're smart and joining us in an amazing amazing actor comedian and voice over artists is Rama Blurry rumour accused of being on the show thank you for having me I didn't realize I was GONNA get buttered up so quickly at the beginning of the show well of course we're getting buttered up by James He wants something from you Aka Torri in this battle are you saying you don't want anything from me right I'm just saying I'll deserve it when I get it okay so you're willing to accept whatever my judgment is by the end I'm fact you look great today that out very very attractive man really James when I said let's bring someone smart maybe even genius intellect in the studio it wasn't actually needing for the person to be so gosh darn handsome but here we are well here we are and I'm I'm already tallying in my head I can't tell you who's winning this flatter off yet yet rabbi they'll tell you I I gotTa Tell You you're very successful active done a lot with your voice over career you're in a number of nationally and internationally syndicated commercials correct you know for different companies you're absolutely amazing I'm GonNa just ask you the question everyone else's thinking right now how are you friends with Ray I appeared on another podcast of raise knowing is half the podcast a great show that rates show and I linked to the three people on that show yeah it was here breath with the fabulous Mr Clark Chan and everyone's friend Eileen Eileen Mary O'CONNELL judge the muppets versus sesame street battle on the WHO would win six one of our favorites yep so I met I met Ray there and was wild by his podcasting acumen but also his passion for purely obscured or pop cultural Ephemera so when he asked if I would do this I said yes and then when he told me what the battle was I said Oh hell yeah very cool so what is your experience within geek culture because very often we have judges that have such a great background to them that we sometimes forget to say like hey by the a sheer he really is into this because they were they do how are you into Geek culture well first off I wear glasses so that got me eh into it very early I read compulsively I just finished my eighth book of the year and the year of the year and that includes graphic novel doesn't things some recommended to me by Mr Clark Chan I consume a lot of media and between the written word art nick cartoons as voiceover guy doing cartoons and video games and things I'm paying attention to everything going on because this is a fun visit a fun learning lesson for anybody who wants to do voices if you do impressions and I do a lot of impressions you have to realize that if you do a bad impression it becomes a character but if you do a good impression understand somebody else might do it too so the key example is this Alan tutic everybody loves Allen to one of the most underrated absolutely Kazan firefly's amazing he's easing everything death at a funeral he was one of my favorite parts of that he took the voice of Ed Wynn Vaudeville performer win famously in Mary poppins the laughing uncle off the table forever now I loved I loved doing this man's voice it was just so much on yet we're still in the middle of Shock Tober James you've been having a very shall we say successful shock Tober so far I have I've I'd like to say that I had to work really hard to get to wins in the month of shocked over the reality is I did not have to work that hard at all I didn't even research either character I just came to the show because you are a liar who was filled with lies actually researched the hell out of I hope I can say that in shock to over the heck out of both characters they were close matches by the a ray did will was there and I somehow pulled out the victory for both so I am in in crisis mode right now because I love this matchup I love Dracula vs Cyborg and look I cannot allow Cyborg to win this battle the idea that I could be facing a skunk for the entire month of shocked HCT sickens and appalls me in I'm not trying to influence your decision in any way Rama you still have to make the right decision you still have to make the right decision for you and family well see here's the thing ray as the impartial judge here I have to rule with my mind and not with my heart so you're pleading as moving may be as heartbreaking as it may be that you are putting up a goose egg this month I can't promise you a victory I can't I have to listen to the facts argued I want is for you to hear arguments and make the correct decision that's all if if every judge did that I would have a ninety five percent win percentage on the show well I gotTa Tell You James Your silence so far in your willingness to just plead the facts and all this is going to be a very dragnet performance I'm interested in just the facts ray all right just the fact enough all right well then let's waste no more time reduce the honors and announced as matchup representing the DC universe the manso metal he irons his clothes with his but cyborg doc and representing the Marvel Universe the count who will dig through the ditches burn through the witches and slamming the back of my dracula thank you okay I'll make a note about it we'll make a note about it before we go any further let's go over the official rules about who would win matched I roll number one each debater will be able to make three points rule number two the WHO would win matches a random encounter in neutral location with neither combatant necessarily knowing anything about their opponent or having any time to prepare part will number three the exact version the character has to be specifically stated so rare which version of Dracula you're using this is such a tough decision there are so many iterations of dragon in this world but I felt that since you assuredly are taking comic book version of Cyborg it would behoove me to take the powers feats and whatnot of the a six one six Marvel Marvel version of dracula gay that kind of scares me a little bit because that's in my opinion the most powerful form DRACULA in popular culture so it's Kinda what's being known as what People Know About Dracula these days I felt anymore right that's true okay well I will be using when did it become a New Yorker right now are you filled with a certain level of bombast when you get to the Mike you lean in and then you start projecting on Amazon by Taibbi and Hashtag who would win rate please give us the DETAILS ON DRACULA COUNT DRACULA is a powerful vampire who first appeared in the eighteen ninety seven brands Tokar Novel Dracula. Today's version of this iconic character is the marvel iteration who first appeared in historical suspense number seven in Nineteen fifty one then was rebooted in Tomb of Dracula number one in nineteen seventy two the newer version was made by Gerry Conway as well as Gene COLAN DRACULA'S PERHAPS THE MOST famous vampire of all time sorry twilight kids owing to the era a free to use characters in Comic Books Dracula makes her a formidable monster or overlord ending on the needs of the Story Dracula has a host of vampiric abilities including
"You're driving along and your partner asks you to slow down a little you point out really going seventy miles per hour. And that's nothing. She replies that that's going as fast as a cheetah can run and she wouldn't call driving as fast as the fastest animal. Nothing book, but cheetah isn't the fastest animal in the world jail. Even though a lot of people think it is the animal that can move the fastest is actually a lot smaller. That Dracula aunt an aunt can run as fast as a cheetah something isn't adding up here done move, not run. I'm talking about animal movement in general Dracula ads can snap their mandible 's at speeds up to two hundred miles per hour two hundred ninety five feet per second. In other words, that makes it the fastest animal movement on record. The president meant was together to spring them with internal stressors and then released. Him so one slides over the other something like a person snapping their fingers. Scientists say the ants probably use this motion to kill or stun prey by fleeing away or slamming it against the tunnel wall, for example, then they drag it back to the nest to feed it to the ant larvae just to the larvae. Why don't they eat at themselves? Because adult Dracula ads can't process solid food the get their nutrition by sucking the blood of their larvae. It sounds gruesome. But it doesn't kill them. That's why they're called Dracula ants. I was going to suggest a name change since vampires. Don't exactly make me think of lightning fast speeds. But no, Dracula Anson's, just fine.

"Welcome to my castle yet. It's a little creepy. I'm trying to I'm trying to sell it while and then and then he's hypnotized, and then he goes on a ship. Dracula kills everyone on the ship. And then by the time, they get to London or whatever they throw r-enfield in the thing. The river. Now, the the asylum. Okay. And then everything's pretty much the same after that. Oh, no feels in the asylum. The whole time I mean. The Texan dies at the end to. I forgot my favorite guy fight with gypsies come on. That's what they are. They're gypsies and the gypsies they were taking Dracula back home, and they like ambush them. But one of the gypsies had a knife. And he got he got the Texan. But then once they like open up the coffin and drag it was like digits. He's like oh shit. And they all ran away. Also, skipped a few other important things. In the beginning. He talks a lot about how Dracula's bad breath. And I kinda wondered what that bet I think he'd vampire Thome. No because my breath is bad Kosovo, smells, like garlic. Which is not what I seem Dracula's garlic breath. I wouldn't think those bad breath. They have garlic breath. I love garland. Get over here. Let me kiss you. I mean, come on. You don't have to take it that far over here. Let me sniff your breath. Yeah. Well, smell your mouth somebody you ever have this happen? Like we live in apartments in New York City. So it's like close quarters like sometimes you get off after a day in you like take the elevator up to your floor. And you're like, I don't know somebody's cooking something there's like garbage. Oh, yeah. Out somewhere. It's surprisingly hard to distinguish between really good food smell or a rotting garbage. Right. That happened the other day where I was just like, oh like at that can't be garbage. But like, I can't re contextualised it. Also, Dracula has hairy palms. That means. Yeah. He's all alone in that that castle, although he has the regular hand stroker's. Exactly. The maybe that's where the name came from. But I don't know where he's got the three lady fan Pires that like live in the castle, you know, the need to resort to that. It would seem. You know, what in this proximity to people doesn't make those people your property, but like they have. Yeah. I always like. Vampires have such a weird terminology like like vampires for millier, you know, what that is. No, it's like a like a pet like a cat or something that's his for millier, and then when a vampire glamour somebody that's when they use like, I think, it's not even just twilight. But it's like how they like hypnotize you glamour. You weird words. I don't like it right or being there. Like now, they're being used as verbs and like adjectives, they're being used as nouns. Yeah. Yeah. It makes me feel right? But then you're like, wow. Pretty smart of Dracula's to do that make you comfortable. Dracula's? I got no use for these vampires. My last note that I have here about the book is that. Like three times in very short secession. The guy Hawkins talks about how he has some make toilet..

"I can't get over the fact that they're talking about where wolves and then there's nowhere will from the God damn dry. Oh, so when Dracula was taking a ship. To London like the ship crashed. And there were a bunch of like all the like they look through binoculars at the ship come in. And they're like, oh that Mike, you know, normally it's like a topless mermaid at the masthead or whatever it's just a man with his neck broken. They've tied to do. Bad but that ship. They didn't know they were transporting Dracula. They thought they were transporting fifty boxes of soil. Right. They know in one of those boxes dry he'll himself. That's a good way to get a cheap airfare fifty oxes soil throw. They can't check them. All exactly. And then one of those your hair sleeping in in the soil. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you want some soil. So that like if they open up a box, they'll still see soil in there. Right. And hopefully, they won't dig too deep Brown close. Yeah. Case. But then the whole every night, it seemed Dracula was getting up on the ship, and, you know, stretches legs, and he's like might as well suck some blood while Amir he's sucked. Everybody's blood. Yeah. I'll tell you this much, Tom. Let me finish. Because all forget. But then the ship crashes, but people that saw the ship crash where like a big dog jumped off. And that was Dracula. Yeah. I would just turn into a dog all the time. Right. So I think one of the fun if you could turn into a dog. Would you? Turn back. Yeah. So in this. And you you the twist. In this too. I think it's like when he's. I don't know if they ever like say sunlight hurts him. But if he if the sun comes up, he stays in whatever form he's in if he's a dog. And then all of a sudden dawn comes it's like us shit. I gotta be a dog until nighttime dog's life for me today to one of the Doug days of summer right says, and then sometimes it's bats day of summer. He's a bad. Sometimes he is turns into like dust, and I guess maybe he would be dust for the day. Sometimes I wish I could hide out as a pilot dust. I stress situation at work big meeting coming up. A pilot Dustin. Sorry suckers, Cam make it. He doesn't his hang out as a pile of dust. He travels on like mean beams he like uses dust to like go under doors and stuff like Alex Mack. Yeah. Kind of like how MAC turned into like mercury. Right. Yeah. Drag just turns into dust just ashes. Anyway. Glad you read that book. I'm glad I get. The the movie ender stand the Victorian people didn't have a better uses their time. But I have a PlayStation four can play. Yeah. I just kept telling you to bail on the book 'cause every time I talked to you in the last two weeks like as As a a coded your. really, not good after read this really long book that I hate. We're just gonna talk about another podcast doesn't matter. Just long. It matters to me. I tried to watch the movie, and I. Bother rewinding any of it. That's why. When we get our yearly reviews, I tend to beat you. At least I knew win the magnitude of assign right? Yeah. I think that's a tire member. Anything? I'm forgetting about r-enfield was in the movie. He do kind of like who's that guy in the beginning? Hawkins Hawkins him. It's kind of a Hawkins figure. He was there to like help. I think Dracula sell his castle, and then he was on the ship with Dracula. And then you see Dracula kind of turn him in. Oh, no, no. He turns them into a servant. Okay. Hypnotizing him. Book hypnotize? But you see it's still like, it's the way you're introduced to Dracula. He shows up at the castle and Dracula's like, I'm charming gay. He doesn't have the action that you're doing his like this. Hey, how's it going to me? Dracula John, John Dracula..

Those blood obviously, some bad's going to happen to her. They find out. Dracula shipped all is soil to different places. Pretty monster books back in the day. So weird to elaborate shift.

He needs that like rejuvenates him to he needs to like sleep in the soil of like his land or whatever, but he had all these boxes shipped all over a lot of them were like red herrings for you know, but we still get to see our bay chase down a box of soil.

And they tracked down Dracula, and they kill him with a stake through the heart stake through the heart caught off his head filled up with garlic baby Philip the head with garlic scoop at the brains.

And then let it let it bake in there for four hours takes a long time bake that head head phila-, garlic. And then. Yeah. And then once he's dead menas fine again. He's been lifted. Okay.

I never realized that I don't wanna read I didn't realize that like even though the bride of Frankenstein is an infringement sign the idea that is in the book. Right. Similarly, I didn't realize that van Helsing was in Dracula. I thought that was like an idea that came up later. Oh, yeah. No. He's he's the guy that kills dragging. He's known as time. Defame Hugh Jackman came up with that idea. Like how about I play a wolverine that wants to kill Dracula is that what it is is overeating in the book..

It's probably his origin story. Yeah. I think I think in housing just like he's a dude from Amsterdam e seen some shit. He's been around town. He's learned some stuff. And that's why he can fight monsters. Have you ever been Amsterdam, no vampires? Oh, man. Well, then I'll have to cancel my trip to Transylvania.

No. If they ever meet, I think Dracula's always will. They do meet. Dracula kills them. But we don't see it isn't kill them. You like maims the hell out of them. I also forgot apart where when Hawkins was sick. He was like sick. As Dracula or whatever he thought he was sick because he had paprika for the first time in a chicken casserole, and that was a very exotic spice to him. And he's sickness is the peppery is broad meal. Just paprika relaxed the paprika that you and I. Not as intense as Victorian paprika. This guy just has a very unsophisticated pallet. I don't know, Tom. So far. I haven't heard a lot of cool vampire stuff other than the things can get into that. If you want, but you wanna talk about the movie, and I just wanted to talk about the Hollywood vampires, Tom who are the Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp. And Joe Perry started a band there supergroup in they were formed in twenty fifteen inspired by Dracula's of lore vampires of lower. If those guys are vampires doing a very bad job of it because they're aging. I mean, I think Alice Cooper looks pretty good for his age. Yeah. Well, yeah. And he's pretty old. But also like Alice Cooper says got makeup on C can't really tell Cooper seventy years old. It's pretty good. How old is show Perry? Joe perry. Sixty eight okay up there too.

No. But a lot of times when he thing on this show, Tom we don't like Burkes. The complete guide boys, then not a fan of birds. They don't like him with birds Perth cosign sign on asking. Exactly. But a lot of times we need a baddies mistaken for bird, which I think probably hurts his feelings when he over hears that. Yeah. Would you rather be a bad or a bird? Bird is more. Majestic than a bed, but a bat is more bad ass on a bird. Yeah. Probably. Oh, I don't know. I'd rather not the either to be honest with you you could fly in both scenarios, Tom. I mean, if I'm a bat though, I can't fly around during the day. Yeah. But if I'm a bird I can't fly around during the night Ken night birds. You not night birds. Her pats. So anyway. Do we know that bats just aren't birds that are at night? Yeah. We do know. We've seen some of them just check Tom again floating it, so he goes to the castle I'm to speed up. My retelling this story how my ten ten pages in here. He goes to castle. Dracula fucking crazy. Although in the in the book Dracula's, a big mustache, oh how to he has a like like one of those long haired mustaches like it. Oh that just seems like especially with the blood. It's like a real media fangs he had such prominent fangs that like when he's just standing there like just normal. The fangs are like hanging out of his lips. Wow. Yeah. That's not a red flag for the thing. There are so many red flags in this book where it's like. Yeah. You know, what a vampire is in there talking about like, this guy's going to see a vampire, and then you go to this guy. He's got freaking fangs hanging his. Mouth like, oh, I see what they were talking about should Hitel Tila. Daddy. Yeah. But he doesn't stay in a house ago over all these legal documents would drag and Dracula's like can you can you go over that one again? And Dracula is just like this nice forms and stuff pretty much like. What the properties I own the tax rate on lend. That's all bunch of that stuff. And you know, this guys like things are getting weird them one day. He's shaving and Dracula's. Like, I have a question about the mortgage rates and it scares them. He cuts his throat by accident with razor and shaving back then dangerous. Well, so not only that what startled him is that. He didn't see Dracula in the mirror, of course. Vamp? So Dracula just shows up behind him. He's like, oh, God he cuts his neck, and then dry is like oh looks like you any like goes to taxes neck, and then he's like oh Saudi about that the can't help himself..

"I've no need for gigantic pickup truck. I should mention. So since we're talking about how boring the movie is super boring to and then I read later, they're they're really cool and really good. Smart though. Freely. That has a book report deal. Yeah. You can put their parts are cool. But but I read a like a critique afterwards, and they were talking about how the back in Victorian times people expected books to be long. So they were saying like, oh, this is why like halfway through the book. It just gets like so tedious and like long winded and like the plots not really moving forward at all heading. Yeah. It's like season three a or of lost Bri when? And nikki. Yeah. Nothing happening and say come on. Yeah. Reveal the answers to some of the islands mysteries. Right. So. Yeah. The halfway through Dracula turns into law season three and. There to spin the wheels. But, but I read it makes sense that they were like back in Victorian times people expected novels to be a certain length in that length is long, right. And it made me think like, oh, yeah. This is the early nineteen hundred at the book came out though. Yeah. Well, it was Victorian times. Not the twentieth century. I'll tell you them. I don't know. That's what this thing said was it. I'll tell you. It was. Eighteen thirty seven to nine hundred ninety one. I'm tom. Yeah. You're right. You're I thought I thought it was probably a shift of those dates fifty years back. You thought it was so cocky with the Magna Carta thing. All. Mr history. You're calling your shots. Okay. Yeah. You're right. Okay. So Queen Victoria. Yeah. Makes very short. I she was short not the rain. For some reason. I clicked we'd Victoria. Appearance. Her height would be listed like. Yeah. Birthday death date height. Yeah. Well, like if you go to like cream Abdul Jabbar, it's got his height in the quick facts there. But let's probably not the the most. Yeah. I don't even know if it's anywhere here. Physical appearance. Not a section. All right, go on. So we're tied one one for history here know what you got one. Right. And I got to write what did you get the length of the movie? Oh, yeah. Okay. That's that's not historical you disputed, how long it was. And then it turned out. I was right. And it is a historical fact movies that movie affect happened. Every fact happened at some point in history that movie came out way closer to Victorian times did to our present day. That's true. Probably boring depressing. Yeah. So they wanted pokes long back then probably because like a book cost so much damn money. For them is probably the equivalent of like five thousand dollars today to buy a book. And I think also. That probably like in Victorian times. Somebody finished a book, they probably close the bug in. Like that was nice now what the hell gonna do looked in looked at the field. Now to stare into the field for for six hours. I can't I don't have an excuse to keep this gas lantern on anymore. Saw the turn that off and just sit here in the darkness until I. Them board into sleep. So that would make sense why they were probably riveted like, oh, they're going to this person's house cool today ever gone this ship yet their ships all these books. I mean, I guess I was the lay to get around. They have airplanes. So it's all shifts. Why can't they just wrote a story that takes place in one city for crisis? Because if you're if you're, you know, some board Victorian thing about we'll blow your mind more than people going. No anything much anything. But that's what made these characters like a big deal because it was like, oh, they're going on chips going places like oh me blood turning into bats. Whereas a lot of these people are probably like I've never traveled more than like a five mile radius from where I was born. So anyway, Dracula so in the beginning of the book there, they're like Jonathan Hawkins is going to see Dracula the beginning of this book too boring. The this book is just Hawkins going over legal documents drac trying to sell his castle. No, you're trying to buy a place in London..

Fifteen sounds like lunchtime. Yeah. Or late to lunch. Yeah. Maybe. We're gonna art this morning says put the letters said that part.

Flash standalone movie pushes start date, eyes 2021 release
"Nine thousand nine with a with a release date for twenty twenty one a around that time. So and because fantastic beasts begins shooting in July during nineteen. It would not have made sense for them to start flash earlier, and it seems that they've kind of put it on the back burner and. Feels like the flash movie is kind of endanger of being sent into the void as the cyborg standalone movie has. And it's one of the long list of troubles at this movie has had on the road to the big screen. I has gone through many directors. Seth Graeme Smith and Rick were the first to board and exit the project within a span of two years during two thousand sixteen currently, John Francis, Daley, and Jonathan Goldstein are attached direct and their parents. Reportedly tweaking the taking the script as of been a now. So they're still plans to do this film, but it's actually a ironically, not been officially green lit by the studio yet. So it seems like they're developing it with a plan to make it at some point, but they don't want to tie themselves to any date. So as of now, we probably won't see the flash until around twenty twenty one. And that's more than that's about seven years since as a Miller was first cast as the flash. Article. The source article of this also notes that one of others seems to be moving past Ben Affleck Henry Cavill for superman and Batman, it makes me wonder, do you think do you think when we actually do get the flash movie that it will be as Remillard as the flash? And mean, that's a good question. I feel like even now as Miller is putting task beasts prioritizing fantastic beasts and doesn't seem to be intent on making the flabby anytime soon. It's wonder, brothers could totally revamped their entire cinematic universe and with an entirely new cast except for wonder woman. And yeah, I don't know. It's possible, especially since Justice league was a little bit of a boxer offices appointment.

So Simon Belmont joined the fray and so has this one's kind of funny. I didn't expect this to happen, and I always get his name run, but king are rural. It's the lizard king from dot com. Okay. And he's joining the fight, which I feel is pretty awesome. I feel like he's a campy really campy villain that I would be interested to see what his move sets and stuff. We're going to be fun. On top of that. So that wasn't enough. They announce a couple more eco characters, which case you don't own an echo character is, is there like sorta like a clone their character based on other character. They mostly have a similar move sets, but they have some different animations and a little bit different timing. So they are slightly different, but they're not like a whole new character in the called eco. Kerr was character characters from echo the dolphin that game. So Krahn from the fire emblem series is going to be an echo of ROY also from the fire cities and dark Sama's is going to be an echo of SAM's and on one more thing that the announced got really excited about is asked a few more few new stages, but in total at the beginning, this isn't this isn't with any deal or anything at the beginning when you buy
