What Alex Stein Saw at the 'Drag Your Kids to Pride' Event in Dallas
"Viral video over the last couple of days. We covered extensively yesterday of the drag show for kids in Dallas, Texas, there's one man who actually went to the or tried to go to intervene and be an adult and do what was actually necessary. That's Alex Stein number 99. I think I got that right. He's hilarious. Alex, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, your alleged, oh my gosh, you're calling me 99. I feel like I made it, you know, the man in the myth the legend Charlie, thank you for having me on. I really appreciate it. Your reputation precedes you. The thing when you went to the school board meeting in Dallas is one of the funniest things I've seen in a very long time. And so you went to this drag show, they didn't let you in, so they're obviously, I don't know, homophobic or something, like walk us through this. Well, listen, this is the thing about this drive show. And you know, in our culture right now, they're doing the drag queen story time at the public library. Now, that's disgusting. That's terrible, Charlie. But at least that's out in the open. What this was, this is more sinister than that because they had a clear window and once they did it, they put paper over the window. So they didn't want people in there. And obviously we did get some major provocateurs, Taylor Hansen got in, although Isabel O'Reilly, a few people did get in that where I was in a group with. But they immediately recognized me and didn't let me in. But what I'm saying is Charlie, this had the vibe of when you're in college and the drug dealer gives you the first drug. The first drug is always free and the drug culture, you know? It's like your first hit, like, come to a bar, but the reason why it was so sinister is they were attacking children. Now, listen, if you're gay, you're trans you're drag queen, whatever, go do that in your own time. You don't need to involve little children. So what this was is, this was pure indoctrination, Charlie. And this was an attack on these children, and it gave me the vibrational energy that they were almost feasting on the purity and vulnerability of these children, and they were loving it. Like, you know, like a vampire, like a Dracula almost.
Jen Psaki Tries Explaning Inflation Rates With Another Excuse
"Here's peppermint at it again I had a suggestion from a listener who was a good one again They said we should call her Pinocchio patty I gotta stick with peppermint I'm a loyal guy It's a great suggestion Thank you for the spectacular audio for audience feedback but I gotta stick with peppermint paint So here's peppermint just about a half an hour ago with Peter doocy Trying to explain away why the inflation crisis she said when they first took office the hapless Biden administration was going to be transitory for the liberals Listen let me temporize I'm sorry I should have cleared that up She said first it would be temporary transitory Then when it wasn't transitory she blamed was a truckers and then the supply chain and then the ports in LA and then she blamed Bela Lugosi and the Dracula and then she blamed the 84 bets and then finally she's now she had now she's she's done with the 84 bets And then she blamed Tim She said the tough will shuffle did it And then after that she's like no Vladimir that was for Jim by the way is always wondering why I'm throwing in weird sports That was just for Jim Now she's blaming Vladimir Putin Now when you are the leader of the free world then this is your spokesperson and they have 30 different stories for ten different events You probably know they're lying Here sucking again trying to explain away but no no the inflation is definitely Vladimir Putin now Even it wasn't yes yesterday was a supply chain thing here Check this out Thank you Jen We just heard you say again that you think inflation is going to be temporary We've heard you say that it was going to be temporary since last spring So how long do you guys think temporary is Well again Peter I think what we do is we rely on the assessments of the Federal Reserve and have outside economic analysts who give an assessment of how long will last The expectations and their assessment at this point continues to be that it will moderate by the end of the year There's also no question that when a foreign dictator invades a foreign country and when that foreign dictator is the head of a country that is the third largest supplier of oil in the world that that is going to have an impact And it is And so it's that point Inflation goes up today The president's statement blames the Putin price type Are you guys just going to start blaming Putin for everything

"Is helping by pushing pushing the wheelchair. It's the most outlandish thing i've seen in a while. And then they decide. Okay you should join us relative of dracula. That doesn't go anywhere that's just pointless to. They just added that to like. I don't know. I don't understand why they added. It is trying to add depth to it but it has none and then next thing. We know they've apparently spent a year. Trying to find where dracula is not now. Let's send the dog to go find where he is my favorite part. I just want to add this. I've narrowed down exactly where he could be. Just the outline of them and then in you copyright after you're not that's fair but not fair use that the That's something you would do like a national treasure or a bond movie or something like that like that's not something you do with a a horror. Movie is not even a good horror movie granted but still. That's not a pattern. That the fact that his saturn happens good or bad true but and then we've got the point where they're like what was it. When they're chasing dracula and they find out he's human the the wheelchair guys like let's leave or we can't go after him. We'll be tried for murder. You tried for her even if you didn't did go after him when he wasn't when he wasn't human and then he flipped lobs right back to being hateful towards him even though they've spent like a good chunk of the movie scene his like seeing the other side of dracula and having talked to his wife and his now resurrected child still characters made no sense and they were just there to infuriate me. It worked it. Did it really did. I have a. I have a marvel question for you actually. Because apparently from researching this it's actually based on the tomb of dracula comic series. No it's not but they also. Your data actually is at least attempting to do you know what i mean. What are your thoughts on like. Maybe we get it. It's bad but like the idea of using marvel as an influence for an animated. I haven't heard of that before personally. Marvel marvel has a dark past. Alright enemies now like there's a there's an next manana anime. There's spiderman animated. There's an ironman anime like now nowadays. It's not that uncommon a thing but those out like in the two thousands though. Yeah but well. that's what i mean. Back back legitimate. They do exist. So it just like dracula's not a character that you really associate with marvel. So i i don't know the story of tomb of dracula like i don't know how accurate if it is accurate at all but i just refused to believe it because i've never seen dracula in a marvel thing but i know marvel has the dark past so all as a moral animal bear the bad with the good. You're the thing. Though like dracula is a is a public domain character. So anybody can do anything with him. I did not know that. Oh yeah so like once a so like a character or in. Ip basically and intellectual property has about Seventy five years after the author dies to Before it before. It's free for everybody to use. That's so that's why there's a whole bunch of different versions of the universal monsters. Why the where of the frankenstein monster dracula. That's why those are there so many movies of those and they're owned by naming companies but there is one or there is one thing that i wanted to point out. I don't think this is. I don't remember austin like if or giant if the frankenstein had these but did he have the bolts and his neck in the animated anime when we watch while ago. I don't. I don't have i was gonna say i don't remember i'm gonna look it up real quick. You're asking me if he has bolts in his neck he has the to bolton. Is some pictures like the movie poster. You don't really see them but there are other pictures on google. If you look it up he does have the bulletin or are they screen shots from the movie. Yeah oh yeah well that might that might also be just because japan has different copyright laws and plus. They probably didn't need to bother with it at the time. Either because it had definitely been like seventy five years since the essence frankenstein had been thing. Like i i liked that. We're having this crossover anime with like dracula frankenstein. All of these different. I wonder if there's a where we'll maybe we'll do that for twenty twenty two. How about that hotshot. But it also business. I'm happy we have crossovers. But i don't think that at the time they were ready. No maybe if there was one now would be better would not like literally would be better because you can't do worse than you can't do worse than this movie you do that right. I think you're a hundred percent. I this is probably the bottom of the barrel for me. So far i do wanna get into this on my analyst. There's better there's worse worse late. What is oh. Okay that i believe however so far i have been exposed to absolute ask so i agree with like how bad this is. The miami it's really a three point seven one which is that is very bad and bad three points too high. And it's ranked eight thousand fifteenth most popular so three people a favorite at this thing. I want to meet the both of all three of you and just no one of them's all three of you. You all we know one of them waited at. We know one of them stayed in. So it's actually not. I can make it if you want it. Sure go for. It won't be on my animals so will on yours. that's fine. i actually after watching. I read it into one on my on my animals. I kinda want it. Maybe if you you'd be interested the there is a review that really like puts it well together on my analysts. I'll throw it in a chat renowned wanna like have a quick look at it as i go over but i think this review encapsulate lists a capsule this the best. It's from a great It was posted in march two dozen in eight on my analysts I'll kind of read through it. A guys feel free to interject and get your thoughts. A classic of anime panels at various conventions dracula sovereign of the damned as it was titled for its us released in the eighties by harmony. Gold is an example of how not to adopt in american kind book into film especially a low budget. Low budget anime. One for one thing. This movie mostly takes place in boston and it's quite obvious that the creators of not have not only never been to boston even research city at all which is why modern day circa the eighties. Boston looks like an older. European city. With omar international title..

"I was like dislike attempt to build up to a story is just run by down. No drac was going to person to person. Just like i need your help in. Meanwhile he stabbed all of these people in the back sometimes. Literally just like. They're not going to help you now that you're powerless you. They have nothing to fear anymore. But it's even even funnier when you think about like earlier. He was talking about the village that he came from that he ruled over. He was like a benevolent ruler. But historically the impaler was an ass he was terrible person. That's there's a reason there's a whole legend behind like that. He was so evil that the devil brought him back to earth. Like that's the whole point and then we see like you. He's apparently addict to everybody when he's a vampire and then he just goes back like as if nothing's ever happened between those people is what is the. What is the logic behind the writing of this movie. I have no idea. I mean another is none. I know but i'm just. I'm just hoping for an explanation of some kind. Well i have a couple of questions. I wanna hit go. So okay this dracula. Compared to other dracula's and i wanna ask this for hotshot. Because i know you're you're a big fan of this. Obviously i want your opinion as well but particularly because i feel like you were always a fan of this specific character. So how does this dracula. Compared to any other that you've watched in the past power wise lake. I get that he has like the basic core powers like he'd can turn into a bat. he can fly. a drains. People's blood has incredible strength and durability so on so forth But other than that like the distract love we barely see as a monster in more associated as like human even even when he is a vampire like when he When he finally tells laura's that by the way i'm drag closed she's like i know it's fine like we see him he actually does care about her and actually does care about his son and light. We don't really see him on a bloody rampage as dracula. See him kill like two three people in the beginning but then after that. It's like all just defensive stuff in his dislike. but if i'm watching attract new movie. I wanna know the hunters. That are coming after dracula. Like when i think dracula. I think allah card when he becomes rackliff from housing like when it becomes his His true self. Like regal powerful. But like i will put my boot in your face kind of kind of power. Not just the right. Ha my son. My son is born. I love him so much. This is not why watching dracula movie buddy. I want you to kill everyone in a nine block. Radius is like the idea they were going for was to like make him like sympathetic. Like i feel like they. They didn't emotional side. What give him an emotional. Yeah i mean. I get it like it did kind of work but at the same time. It's like you're barely exploring the fact that he is a vampire than just saying he's a vampire. I mean like the the problem is that they didn't build up like the other side of dracula so that lake so that the softer side is more surprising. Because like a like as you get the you get the first few minutes where he attack where he attacks people and all that and then next thing we know it was just like okay. We're joining the colts seen and that's just stupid. The whole thing was ridiculous. I don't i don't get it like why bother. Don't bother donald a question. I want to ask you guys for me. The kills were so dumb. Yeah like they're very very one noted like the first battle was like ri dracula's in this okay bites again. Okay this you other than your teeth you know. It was like how i felt about. It just felt like so linear and basic. Ed not thought out what about you guys like. What's again. I think i preferred the kills and frankenstein and those were some pretty basic kills. In my opinion. I mean i didn't like it like from what we saw at least like killed at a necessity because he needed to drink their blood. So i was only that however the kill. That was kind of like what the fuck to me was dracula's death when When the guy stabbed him just with a small piece of silver then exploded the entire castle wheelchair. And just like okay not gonna lie kinda cool by just one stabs silver. Come on dracula. I guess he's got an sorry. Go ahead god jackie last. You know it's so come on. This is why we do this podcast when he when he saw his when he saw his reflection in the mirror after years turned human. I'm just like just try by garlic. See if it does anything. You're probably moral now. Yeah okay okay. There was there was one. Kill that that kind of floored me even more though just the When when dracula was fighting the the new leader of the vampires and then just out of nowhere across burned into his palm and then onto his face and then he dissolved. I'm just like all right. Well that happened just kind of a surprise like just out of shock than anything. Yeah really just happened. Actually some some about that. I wanna bring up real quick When when dracula was mortal in like he was He was trapped in the house with the kids when he was holding the cross. The cross was still hurting him even though he was mortal so like what's again the cross was Was hurting him. When even when he was mortal when he was holding his hands for smoking and steaming. What's yeah. I didn't see that part of their unike. Oh we're looking at our phones the entire time because we could not give two shits about. This movie wasn't that i was looking at my phone. It was that i was passing now. I was actually falling asleep. I mean solve sovereign of the damned man. You know jackie emperor of darkness the darkness of your eyes shut. This has no right. It has no right holding the dracula title in this movie. Call us the unfortunate is column the vampire-prince and that's it. We'll we'll just call it there. I want to also hit another point. what did you guys think of. The main struggled throughout the film is dracula vs satan. Because obviously dracula's steals the sentence future wife at the very beginning. What did you think about the rivalry between satan and dracula from general sense. It makes no sense in kind of makes sense. I don't get what makes sense about it. I don't i don't think it makes sense. It's somewhat does because dracula was brought back like not via his own volition or anything else saying dislike. Hey this guy slaughters way too many people for me to just let go so i'm going bring him back. This immortal beast so it kind of makes sense exactly would want vengeance on that especially with all the melania that he spent like hunting down people in order to survive and everything kind of reminds me of a very very very very low tier crato sin areas. But the only difference there is that craves literally asked areas for help. and then i'll do your bidding. So i feel like that's kinda does it. This was just. I mean really when you get down to it. It was just eight and being satan. Because he's he's evil. He does what he wants. He does little work for him but in my terms satan was just being a dick. He's just like no. I'm not gonna let you die. I like for me. The rivalry was just okay. I guess this is what the foams about against this is. What's going to occur. Satan's is pissed dracula dracula never liked satan and then powers get removed. Turns out his wife has some sort of yard power as well could bring people back to life sort of and can hurt saints face matching likely the wife that was able to do that. Yeah i so stupid. I your mother. Your mother showed that same kind of power. It was awesome when this out. An awesome doesn't mean what it means now that it did back then. But just hearing dracula's say the line it was awesome breaks a little. Oh my god. Awesome is used in It's it's kind of in the same. It means the same thing but like we don't. We didn't use it as like skateboarder lingo in the nineties. Before then so right. What about the. What did you think about the vampire hunt. And i talk about these stupid characters. I hate them so much. They are awful. Oh my god so an elaborate money. Yes yes give me a second. I'm still upset about him for. So i seen is literally the main dude who's like Is like oh god. He doesn't have a personality. I don't know what his character is supposed to be like. I split second. I th. I thought he was the wide-eyed protagonist character that you're supposed to like root for and that he was talking about drake yet. Yeah talking about drake sorry. I don't remember his name. We don't remember the names. I remember some names. I don't remember the those characters. Drake is like asked to meet these characters in the middle of the park and then the old guy starts attacking him also. The girl is helping by pushing pushing the wheelchair. It's the most outlandish thing i've seen in a while. And then they decide. Okay you should join us relative.

"It's a little like lemonade. There's a pucker to it. There it is. It is but I like it. Yeah, that's pretty good. Maybe a little too much pomegranate. Yeah. But you know, here at scary spirits, adjust the drinks to make you happy. So we can next time we'll know, cut down the pomegranate a little bit. Anything we learned today. Well, what was the name of the noct? All purges knocked. Yes, we learned a little bit about that. Yes. Little bit of vampire lore if you didn't know. Always learning the vampire lore. A little bit about how Dracula was different in the book than the movie. Yes, I'm still waiting on my book report here on my desk. Okay. I did start reading it. Anything else? No, like I said, I just think you should watch it. It's a perfect movie to watch this time of year. I agree. It's short. One hour, 14 and some change. Not bad. I like it. When it starts showing up on TV, you know, it's Halloween season. All right, I believe, then the next film is my choice. Yes, Greg, what do you got for us? My film, I have chosen is. Do you want a drum roll? House on haunted hill. Oh, no. Is it the old one? The old one. Okay. The 1959 film. Spencer price in that Vincent prices in it, yes. I don't know if I've seen it. I don't think so. Well, it is on Amazon Prime. It's free, both the colorized and the black and white version. Oh, which one are we watching? I don't know. I thought that might be interesting. And it's also on the whatever whole or classics DVD collection and we both own. That's going to be the black and white one, though. Yes, that is. The black white went in. It may be edited differently too, as we've found out in the past, I think. Yeah. So yes, both the colorized and black and white are available on Amazon Prime. 1959. Okay. Vincent Price. And what am I drinking?.

"Cool costumes. I will say that on everyone. I like the clothes. It is the classic isn't it? I think it's the OG. You know, I mean, sure nosferatu, but most people when they think of Dracula, if you asked the classic Dracula, you would get Bella, I think. Probably. I mean, I've not seen nosferatu all the way through. And I've seen this multiple times. This is who I consider the classic Dracula. I mean, I like the talkie films, you know? I think having his voice with his accent made him a little more mysterious. I didn't find him that handsome, but certainly sophisticated and elegant. I think you would notice him when he walked in the room. But I wasn't all Lucy about him. He says that he was so eager to repeat his stage success. And play the Count Dracula for the film version, he agreed to a contract paying him $500 a week for a 7 week shooting schedule, which I guess was a paltry sum. In those days. Well, he certainly played it over and over and over after that. And the scene where the boat being tossed about exactly taken from an earlier silent film called the stormbreaker, they reuse the same footage. I would have tossed my cookies multiple times on that boat ride. I don't do well with that kind of stuff, but just watching it on film made me think. Yeah, it says Dracula's castle was a painting on glass in front of the camera. So I'm Matt painting, you know, the coach traveling along the road was real, but the background was not, so I guess the accent is natural for lugosi. Well, it was consistent. And he never blinks his eyes once in the film. Apparently. I didn't know it was a play. Well, it followed the play this movie..

"Enters and confronts Spain housing. He tells them to go home. Yeah, go back to your homeland. Then he commands van helsing to come to him. Uses his Dracula hand. The Jedi mind trick, yes. And then helsing takes a step or two, but then he takes a step or two back and he resists and Dracula comments about how strong will he is? Yeah. He fights it off. And then he pulls a crucifix out of his jacket pocket. And Dracula runs away. Next, harker goes to check on Mina. Where Mina's begging to open the windows because it's so stifling. Well, well, mean as nurses out front outside her door saying that she felt weak and might have passed out. When she woke up, mino had gone outside. So then we see Mina and she's never looked more beautiful, has she Karen? No, she comes in from the outside patio glowing in another fabulous dress. Yes. I think this one was probably red, even though it was black and white. I had the feeling it was red. Yeah. A red satin dress, you think? That would make her look fabulous and Jonathan is taken with her. Yes. You can't believe how wonderful she looks. In a big bat arrives, starts flapping around and harker's trying to short away, but it's screeching and being in a saying, yes. Okay. I will. The bet is communicating with Mina through telekinesis or something. And Mina gets harker to sit next to her. Well, what the bat was telling her was to get Jonathan to get van helsing's crucifix away from him and hide it. Correct. So he's trying to work through Mina and then they sit close to each other and Jonathan notices her eyes and how she's looking at him. But she's staring at his neck as all she's doing. Yes. And she goes in. She goes in and gets closer, very slowly, just like they all do. And goes to Biden and van helsing comes at her with a cross. Yeah, she can't look at the crucifix. And then she spills. It's all true. It's all true. Yeah. Dracula. She now has Dracula's blood in her and she and harker can no can not be together. Their love is finished, whatever. Next we see me in a back in bed with wolfsbane all around her. But again, no one else in there with her, just heard. The nurse. Well, true. But Dracula's right outside the window with his Dracula eyes. Command in the nurse to remove the wolf of Spain and open the window to let him in. So Dracula takes me to the Abbey. And they are beginning to walk down some a large set of stairs circular stairs Karen with no banisters, no handrails. But it was gorgeous, wasn't it? Yeah, it was big. It was big, yes. But there was a wall. I could put my hand on and I could get tell. Yes. And then renfield arrives and soon after that, Parker and van helsing arrived. They see renfield going to the Abbey and they follow him, which does not make Dracula happy. Dracula kills renfield. For that. Yep. He rolls down the stairs. He carries Mina to the catacombs. That's what they all. That's what I called them catacombs. Called it his lair. And helsing and harker follow. I've been helsing fines. They're crates. He breaks the lid off of Dracula's crate and fashions a wooden stake from the lid. So I guess he had nowhere else to go, but he sees.
"dracula" Discussed on Scary Spirits Podcast
"Swats it out of his hand. And he asked the forgiveness that he does not like mirrors. So he does say mirror. And he knows that van helsing knows now. Yes. And he tells the doctor and harker that van helsing will explain his odd behavior. Right. And Jonathan's in golf pants. Yes. And me sucks. I'll point that out. He's a handsome. It's a guy, though. Any other fashion things? No, I just noticed that he was in the golf pants and the reason you see him is he's on the patio or whatever, and he sees a wolf in the yard after Dracula leaves. But as Dracula is leaving, he tells being helsing, he is a wise man for not even having lived one whole life. Yeah. He knows that van helsing knows at this point. So Mina leaves her room and runs out to the garden or whatever and meets Dracula, where he lives at his cape and I assume attacks her. Raps is cape around her. It's very tender. In a rest of the boys are all in there, discussing Dracula. So van helsing's laying the knowledge on them, you know, the vampire must have blood or it dies. Whose only active sunset to sunrise. And he does say he needs native soil to rest in. And I just made a note that there's a lot of art deco in the house and it's very cool. There's a fireplace that is very nice and there's columns all through the house. It's a neat set. Yes. Then the maid comes running in, saying, oh, it's terrible. It's terrible. It's terrible. Miss meanness out in New York dead. Right. So apparently she's laying in the front yard. Yeah, so they all ran out there and but the maid or the nurse, I don't know what she is. She faints. And Redfield corals. So does he feed on her? Are we supposed to assume he fed on her? I guess. Yeah. They don't show anything. So we don't know. But he's being really weird and she just looks at him and passes out. Yes, but they do carry Mina in and we learn that she's not dead. Yes, she's still alive. Next we hear a baby crying and we see a cop on a bicycle. And then we see Lucy walking through the Woods. Very ethereal in her white dress. And then we see newspaper clippings, talking about a lady in white, who is preying on young children at night. Yeah, offering them chocolate. So some of them must have lived because they say that she's preying on young children. She offers them chocolate, so she's not killing them, I guess. She gives them small bites on the neck. So next, we see van helsing questioning Mina about Lucy van helsing asked Mina when did she see Lucy last after she was buried? Yeah, that was pretty funny. And Jonathan's getting agitated, you know? Yes. He wants to take me away and take her back to London. And then Jonathan's blaming van housing for Mena's behavior. But she's starting to understand that maybe things aren't going to work out for her because she's begging van helsing to save Lucy and her soul. She's telling Jonathan, their life together is over. She loves him, but the horror is in her and, you know, so she's kind of realizing she's screwed..

"She likes excitement. Yeah. He's an adrenaline junkie. Or more of a risk taker than Mina. Mean as the good girl. Yep, so next, Lucy and Mina are in Lucy's bedroom talking about Dracula. As you do. Yes. I mean, even begins kidding her and calling her countess. Lucy you count this Dracula or whatever. And Lucy goes to bed, but first she opens the window and we see Dracula walking by and he looks up and sees her window open. She goes to bed, a bat flies in. It's Dracula. And he kills her. But he approaches her very slowly. You know, this is one of the things that I think other draculas in future films take from Bella's performance. He holds his hands in that Dracula way. He moves exceedingly slowly towards her in the bed. You know what I'm talking about. You know the hand thing. Yeah, he even uses it later to try to hypnotize people. Yes. So he drinks. But something interesting. I didn't even realize until we were talking about the horror of Dracula with the Christopher Lee fell. Is that there are no fangs in this movie? No, you never see any. He has no fangs. He has regular teeth the whole time. Well, but you don't even see his teeth. Well, when he's talking, I mean. Yeah, but there's no fangs. He doesn't smile. And it's all kind of left to suggestion. You don't see anything. It usually fades to black, right before. You infer that he has tasted someone. Well, we know he did because the next scene is her body being examined. Yeah, which was such a weird thing because it's in an auditorium. Yeah, like a medical school. Yeah, it's a medical school kind of thing. And there's, I don't know, 30 other doctors are all in white, again, in their examining her. And they show the marks on her neck and everything. But this is Lucy. Mina's friend and Mina's father is the one doing the exam. And there's no emotion. Whatsoever. And later, throughout the movie, nobody kind of acknowledges that she's gone. I mean, she does show up later. Of course. But nobody say another death with the same two puncture marks on the neck. So this was not the first one. They've seen. 'cause at first I thought maybe it was the flower girl, you know, but then I could see it was Lucy. It's like you say she's gone and nobody it's done. Nobody's upset. Nobody is not distraught that her best friend is now dead. It's just, okay. Next we see the sanitarium outside the sanitarium. This is all this whole film kind of takes place in the sanitarium almost. In the house. On the ground. Yeah. And we see renfield. He's trying to eat a spider in his guard as taken it away from him..

"And they arrive at the castle renfield goes in and the scenes are pretty good. The scenery is amazing. Lots of matte paintings. Castles are real places. These are paintings, but they look good. The castle, the doors that he walks through are at least through those tall doors that are at least two and a half times his height. You know, when he first walks in. And then the outside is just majestic. I mean, it's tall ceilings and arched doorways and arch windows and it's just besides the fact that it's covered in cobwebs and stuff. It's gorgeous. Really, it's very gothic looking, of course. And so rent field meets Dracula. And they discuss Dracula's intention to lease an Abbey in England, right? Yeah, that's why renfield is there. Yeah, he's like some legal dudes or something. And then they say that practice says, well, we will set out for England the next evening. And one more renfield does cut his finger on a paper clip and blood starts coming out and Dracula gets a little excited. He does. It starts. An account. Does ask renfield if he kept his trip a secret? So nobody knows he's what he's doing there. But did you know so he has food out for him? Yes. And that's his bedroom. Yes. So it was one room. It was a big room, and it had a nice fire in the fireplace. Fireplace. Yes. Tall as renfield. And a big dining room table with food on it. And then the count walks over and says, I hope you'll find this bed comfortable. So it's all in one room. I don't know if that's how it used to be or if they're saving cash dollars. On set, you know? Like I don't know if because it would take a lot to heat those old castles. So it might be just convenient to heat the room eat and sleep in it. But when he cut his hand and Dracula gets very excited by it, he does kind of casually show him the crucifix that the woman gave him the rosary. It kind of falls out. It kind of falls out. And kind of lands on his hand and Dracula recoils. Yes, he does. So then Dracula leaves renfield goes to the window and opens it. And he sees a bat and he faints. Did he fainter did he get bitten? I couldn't figure it out. He faints. It's like he painted me. That's what I have. Because lives again. And they start to head toward him and they begin to bend over him and just then Dracula arrives and shoes them away. Shoot, shoot. Basically. So there are three very pretty women in flowing gowns. I think they're in white, aren't they? Are they in white? Hard to say, I guess. But very flowing gowns and they're about to feast on him, but you're right, Dracula comes in and she was away..

"Basically so van helsing runs down there. Because he knows what's going on now and he finds dracula's white coffin but it's empty. It is van helsing runs back upstairs on by this time the gerda is hysterical or some shit because van housing slaps her first dracula lachmann housing in the cellar. And then he's yelling. Let me al. You know an arthur lets him out. They run up to me is room dracula. Took me is called off with her. I didn't write that. But i did. Right van helsing slaps gerda. And she tells them that dracula took me. Then they chase after dracula and they decide the only place you can go now is home. So he's trying to go back to his castle so they're racing back in these horse carriages and they come across a murdered coachman. Well that's how dracula got a carriage. And the next we dracula driving the coach dracula comes to the border and he crashes through the gate and right when the official fixes it with regard or whatever repairs it in here come van helsing arthur in a crash florida's well although i'm sure. No horses were harmed during the filming. He didn't show him crashed through. Actually they looked like they were startling. Right look like they went right up to it and stopped but yeah it was kind of comic relief for the border guy right on his face like so we see it's getting light. And we see dracula digging a grave for meena and he throws her in it literally he just throws for. I rewound it to see if it looked like a dummy dummy. It did look like her. It did look like her. But i'm i don't know if it was or not but there's probably a mattress or a cushioned down. There i guess booking did he just threw her in and started covering her with dirt and as he does that she wakes up or whatever and screams and then arthur inbound housing arrive. Arthur runs to save meena van. Helsing chases after dracula into the castle. Van housing and dracula fight accurate chokes. Him out they wrestle dracula does choke him goes to bite him but it was just in vain. Housing makes up and pushes him away. They stare at each other for a moment and next van helsing jumps upon the tables and leaps across them runs across them or too large tables. I guess imposed down the curtains letting a beam of sunlight into the center of the room. That's what i mean. He was pretty athletic. could move. i don't think he was really a young dude. When this was filmed either he got up on the table and it was like three strides to get the curtains down and the sun burns his foot turning to dust. So he's turning to dust his feet from his feet. The rest of abs okay correct. He started the doctor was forty five years old when he did this fan housing. Wow that's pretty. Yes so dragging agile dry lids leg..

"They use the candle. The candle there was a big fat candle list when they first the cam came in the elapse of time. Yeah and then when he wakes up the candles going out because so he misses an almost a whole day. He says he's missed a day. Knee thinks he may be a vampire. Then he sets off to find dracula's hiding place to kill him and he goes out the window but was ram and he records it in his diary that he's become a victim of dracula and hopes whoever finds him will do what is necessary to release his soul correct so he goes down to the cellar of castle dracula. Yeah you're right. He climbed out the window. But it's cool stained glass window. And he finds dracula in his coffin as well as the woman in hers. He does leave his diary in a virgin. Mary shrine so he's leaving that hoping that someone will find it and know what to do but yeah okay. He finds them both and wiser virgin. Mary shrine on the ground dracula. I don't know but that's what it was. Looks like to me too. I think it's off his property at the crossroads so next takes a wooden stake in drives it through the quote unquote heart of the woman. But so he goes down. I'm no expert on an on an anatomy so little low. But i don't think he was hitting the heart but whatever but if you go down to the cellar and your mission is to kill dracula. He walks over. He looks in dracula's casket and he stands there and stares you're going with this then he walks over to the woman and stands and stares at her and i'm like get on with it. Dude i would've killed dracula i but he killed the woman and then what happens. Of course dracula wakes up. I'm like why are you sticking around. Go go go. And then he goes to drag. His casket will i. The woman turns into like an old hag right..
"dracula" Discussed on Scary Spirits Podcast
"I mean they're all different somewhat but i'm talking about the source material. I thought that oh right. I've never read it. So i don't know well i haven't either but i thought i thought meena in harker where together. It's not important especially not to this story. I don't know threw me a little bit. Yeah i just know there's lucy character. There's a harker character doesn't mean a character you know we don't have r-enfield in this so and i'm not sure who the woman is but anyway. Oh they've greek goddess. Yes yeah. I don't think she has a name. So anyway dracula seems kinda smitten with lucy. Maybe a little bit now just that. She's lovely here. Whatever right then dracula leaves. And he locked the door behind him so he locks harker in his room right. Yeah it's a little harder goes to open the door and it's locked. So why did you give them the keys to the library. If he was going to lock him in his room like i'm guessing that somebody would have unlocked it in the morning to let him out. But there's nobody there so i don't know who would do it. Why would you lock him in. So he can explore the castle by himself because he has secrets he's dracula. Yeah i think he maybe he locked him into keep him safe now because he sounds like he hears a job that needs to be done. He's found the guy to do it right. He wants to keep him safe stood so he can get his library categorized. Now that is important. Maybe maybe not. So then harker begins writing in his diary and this is where we learned that he knows exactly who dracula is in. He aims to end his reign of terror. Yeah i don't think i would write this stuff down while i was in the castle but yes so we do know that jonathan is not the librarian. He's there to kill dracula. yes and he sits by the fire. Do you think he has some time as elapsed. Yeah we see dracula. Leave the castle. And then jonathan sitting by the fire like yeah and he looks like he's sort of dozing off. So i i think some time has passed and you. Here's something door. And we see the doorknob move and he.
"dracula" Discussed on Scary Spirits Podcast
"My wife said why is she wearing a greek robe. Exactly what she said. Why is she in a toga fancy toga toga. But he i don't know it's eighteen. Ninety five yes but if you were wearing that at a halloween costume someone would say cool greek costume dough and she pleads with jonathan harker to help her escape he introduces himself as the new librarian and then she starts pleading and then she runs away. She says the counts keeping her prisoner. Please help me please help me. And then she looks set his neck and then she runs away. Yes and we hear dramatic music. He doesn't seem very bright. This jonathan harker. I mean but apparently he knows exactly what he's getting himself into. But wouldn't you be suspicious of anyone in the castle at nighttime nighttime yet right or is it. You think it's nighttime. Now right now dracula up here off of the stairs yes Okay so it's been some. Some time has elapsed. Yes yeah he turns. There's ominous music tatan. Who's at the top of travelers. At the top of the stairs and dracula takes harker to his room. And everything way to say so. Christopher lee descends the staircase right and. This is something that i noticed. Now that i'm old about the staircase. I noticed something as they're walking up. There's no there's no handrail. No handrail. There's no bannister. It's just steps coming down. it's a wide staircase. it is but i just thought i'm an old person. We're where do i hold on. I noticed as they were walking up the stairs. Each of them took to stares at times. Yeah they're both pretty athletic in this thing especially both be tall too. I know christopher. I think chris release pretty tall. Actually the person who impressed me the most lewis dan helsing. He did a couple of if he did his own stunts. Which i don't know of course that he he's pretty athletic guy too. So drake the takes her to his room. And i made a note that the chest at the foot of his bed looked like another casket. It does like the casket we saw the credits but smaller. Maybe looked like a kid's casket. It's a neat house. The castle well okay. It's it's a neat castle. It's a mix of like old world. An art deco and the tops of the doors are all rounded Which is cool heavy fabrics gold gilded furniture four poster these fireplace. It's it's a castle but there's some art deco mixed in there. That kind of looks out of place really like those swirly things at the top of the stairs. Anyway so dracula excuses himself. And as dracula's gone harker begins to unpack his bag and he puts up a picture of his fiancee. Lucy then dracula reenters the room and gives him a key to the library because he says saying his. I am going to be away for quite a while. I thought it only fitting that you have the key to the library. Something good and then he sees the picture of lucy dracula does this is confusing to me. Because wasn't jonathan harker. Girlfriend in dracula meena knows it. Lucy wasn't it. I don't maybe. I just thought it was. Did they switch them in. This could be 'cause wasn't wasn't winona ryder. Meena and keanu reeves harker. In that. while you're talking about the graham stoker's dracula now..
The Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory: Serial Killer or Victim of a Patriarchal Society?
"So that brings us to bet battery or elizabeth bathroom for us english-speakers which i will be referring her to for the remainder of the episode after a literally limitless number of films plays poems and books have been written about her. She is also known. As the blood countess lady dracula and the blood lady of qatif ish. She's been given countless nicknames. Just based on what she was suspected of doing and i use the word suspected in h. One and bold formatting but what she actually a victim of the patriarchal culture of her time or was she just really one of the most vicious and bloodthirsty female serial killers with ever lived. I mean that's kind of polar opposites there right. Elizabeth bathroom was born on august. Seventh fifteen sixty on her family's estate in hungary now they were a very powerful protestant family. Calvin est actually and they were one of the most prominent families in the entirety of eastern europe. Her father and mother. Baron george the six by three and baroness on bathroom respectively. More or less controlled its own miniature kingdom within hungary which consisted of modern. Day transylvania in romania. Her uncle. stephen bathroom was the king of poland. So they were. In fact the most well-connected as was the custom at the time royalty sometimes married within their own families. I mean everyone knows the inbreeding jokes. Right so generational inbreeding elizabeth's mother and father were actually first cousins. Both from the bathroom side of the family. This could actually potentially explain why she was plagued with health problems throughout her life but especially during her childhood and fun fact. Elizabeth bathroom is actually remotely related. To vlad the third via marriage whom many of you know as dracula himself vlad the impaler but as a child elizabeth would have epileptic seizures. She was frequently ill and she would reportedly go into fits of white hot rage on a dime. Very little is actually known about her childhood but the urban legend and myth has seemingly just multiplied taken on a life of its own throughout the years. I it was reported that her uncle taught her satanism and witchcraft. Then it was a satanic doctor who attempted to treat her epilepsy with healthy blood. Taken from the peasants apply to elizabeth's forehead via a piece of their own

Getting Ghosted and Rejected
"Talk about rejection because it's been my observation from a lot of different personal conversations. I've been privileged to have From my friends who trust me with their deepest darkest secrets to complete strangers. Who for some reason. Open up their deepest darkest secrets to me. Like in an uber driver or in a i know meeting just getting to know somebody. I've been really lucky And sometimes really overwhelmed and not knowing what to do with it but Been very at the end of day. I think really honored and and Fortunate for people to be so frank with me be very vulnerable with me and i know how much these encounters these everything from like your deepest truest love to like a one night stand to like just attempting to talk to somebody else and getting rejected like how much of a scar. That can leave or how much that can like. Change your entire outlook on life for yourself and it can be really tough to talk about publicly or even to just even like your friend or a person to say out loud. It's really personal. And so i thought that in light of it being asian pacific american heritage month and it also being mental health awareness month which i cared deeply passionately about that share some a in my opinion a pretty funny story at this point to reflect on all those elements combined so here we go garrity for one of my most embarassing moment. I still don't understand why. Keep this story. Keep kept creeping on me and i literally have had conversations like do i really need to share this on a podcast and it keeps coming up.

He dressed up dracula in kindergarten for halloween. I was strawberry shortcake. It was adorable and he sat diagonal to me kindergarten glass and i remember he liked candy corn and i thought it was kinda gross and tasted like wax but i ate it because brian haas liked it so i wanted to have a connecting point of interest with him so i to eight candy corn.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"You know we've just sent them the book had them read it like say if you WANNA cover it covered if not no big deal and we've had some really really excellent response from from critics test audiences that have that we've submitted the book to They have absolutely loved it you know their everybody has recruited doesn't excellent. You know we want that type of the baton to know how we can you know, improve and do things better but overall, the stories been very very well well received it's its sales numbers are insane for a small press book You know we've already sold out our first print run of ten thousand units. which most indie small press books they get lucky if they sell, you know three, four, five, thousand copies. Yeah. We've already sold thousand so it'll be in comic stores nationwide on September twenty actually a month from today. I'd say deal especially in today's market where comic books are I mean? Struggling is put mildly. It's it's a tough. It's a tough business out there and you know we have We've kind of broken the mold a little bit with culture, Dracula, we have you know. We have I personally have called hundreds of comic bookstores. To have a conversation with the owner about cult of Dracula, and we've been in contact with them through social media and through email marketing, and we've really really tried to make contact and build relationships with them and help them understand why they want to have a relationship with us at second sight studios and why they WANNA, Carry, call to Dracula and then also you know we've we've found ways that. We can give back to them and offer them support and to be able to sell our boat because it does no good. If we just sell it to the retailer and then insists on the retailer shelf and nobody it up you know but we're doing we're very aggressive in educating the shopowners about the book and how they can how they connect it to the right customer of theirs..
"dracula" Discussed on Currently On
"Subsequent airings have carried a TV p. g. rating for violence so Now I know there's some animated movies that have much strong has language and lots of issues. This one doesn't have any of that if your concern. So the kids could watch it but it has a darker tone. It's Batman vs Dracula. So you're gonNA have vampire and you're going to have a lot of this. Here's what I think is I'll just throw some thoughts I. Don't want to give spoilers away. Here's what I'll just give some basic thoughts on the show. I liked the way it begins because it utilizes two of the very famous villains from the Batman Mythology Batman comic books. Batman storytelling got the Penguin and you've got the joker. So you've got these two. You've got these two that are very critical to the storytelling and let's just say the story starts off with someone breaking out of an Assane Asylum are eight. You got them trying to find some hidden treasure hidden gold stolen loot. Okay. Stolen money stolen gold, and next thing you know penguin and joker are both trying to get this hidden treasure, this hidden gold hill hidden thing and what they ultimately discover. Well, joker kind of takes a different turn. You'll. You'll have to see what happens to the joker really really cool turn what happens to the joker but the penguin ultimately while he's trying to. After he's kind of gotten away from the joker and he's going to do this on his own. Well, let's just say he doesn't stumble upon treasure. He stumbles upon Dracula and the next thing you know Dracula has come to and then the chaos ensues So I I love the first part of it I thought was really clever using the joker, the penguin kind of agreed for money a desire to get treasure don't care about anybody else ultimately unleashes the Vampire Count Dracula okay, and we we all know that. Okay. So that that happens that happens. And then so so you transition from that Count Dracula. Now going to try to control the world by you know by you know, basically turning everyone into a pyre into a kind of Zombie type vampire that he can control. That's his evil plot, and of course, Batman has to stop it. I think the first part of the story is very good very told very well with lots of action, the Batman versus the Dracula Interactions. I just feel like, I feel like they had a great concept and I just feel like it doesn't live up to you feel like something's missing you're like man just starting off really good. I was really impressed with the way it started rain thunder and lightning give a good atmosphere, and then we get to the Batman vs Dracula, and I just feel that the conflict between the two..
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

"Just, like I say I, just I live. I'm just very partial to the original so i. It's. It's just so good I i. don't I like I like the silence between the dialogue I love the like we talked about I love the the real sets. The real castles real staircase all. These, you know big large huge staircases. Long curtains, and it's just a different time and I just. I love that I've in you said it's all part of the charms you know it's. It's obvious you know so much different than the horror movies today. Of course it will be, but it's it's. It's all because of Carl Emily at universal. He was big Hoorah Fan. In the okay took a big chance of making these movies and. DRACULA WAS THE START And then needed Frankenstein went on to do wolf roles other classics. In right. Okay, that's where universal made their money. That's how they became powerful because these malefic monsters yeah, now they're revamp. They're not a redoing everything. Right out. I mean the I was visible man. And they're going to keep going with. That got I just found out doing the Wolfman. And just found out that they're doing bright a Frankenstein. Wow! that. I was doing the research like. I. Like the invisible man. I thought it was great I didn't see it, but yeah. Yeah, I See the see it. It's it's great I liked it a lot. I went. Oh, he's good. He's good at wrote saw. Okay? Okay. Yeah, I mean. I saw the trailer and I thought wow, that looks and I loved it. Is really good. I was checking up. Yeah. I really liked that one, so I didn't know they are going to be doing they're. Trying to reinvent it and. Modernize it obviously, and they're getting all these top directors. Really do right because they've tried many times to re do this again. And, it's always failed. I mean when he did WAS THAT DRACULA. Untold think called Oh. I, didn't even see it. Oh my God. It's really actually a good movie. Oh, it is good. Okay I. Liked it I haven't seen it. Yeah, it bombed, but. It's not your Typical Dracula movie. They go into more. Of Vlad, the impaler and kind of. Up in the end in the in then, they show him. Get you know bitten by this. Ancient Vampire turned into Dracula, but it's actually a really good movie. I liked it. I thought it was cool. All right. Put all that, and then you got the seventy five Franklin Gela Dracula, which is really good to. Okay. I got all these. Get entire. Christopher Lee and all. Of course really played a form of yeah. He was a form of drag for the hammer films. They were good. Those. Those were really. Gory and violent. Okay sexy. Sixty. Did, they all did they ought to do all the classic with a hammer films did they do? The Wolves Fan and did they reduce? They did forms of Frankenstein the Wolfman, but they weren't that good. Chris Farley. Doing those Dracula movies are good. Twenty. Different, you know those are English move I got it. They got away with a lot so a think about it. There's there's no Gore with the Bella. Yeah I mean the one. Movie where they show blood is when he he puts his finger. On the contract on the R., the paper Clip Clip, and then the scout in that SAS falls down. His face. When the blood comes out, and he gets into his crouching position, he's coming up on premise Oh, yeah! The UH Francis Ford Coppola Dracula movie. I liked. As well, but. It's not as good as the original Dracula. Yeah Yeah. got. Bella is. A LOT OF PEOPLE PLAY DRACULA and I think Bella is the only person that really. Complain. Yeah. That's it. Hands Down Boom. And, then unfortunately he that's all he was. Yeah. You got typecast. Kiss after that and. kind of ruined his whole career. Off. Just shamed now. Dracula was also inducted into the Library Congress. To Film. National Film Industry. Okay this historically and aesthetically significant so there you go. I wonder if the other films have been as well. Have to research that but. This one! This one interesting okay, and is considered one of the top one hundred. scariest movies of all time. Wow. Okay so. I mean they're. People are GONNA go. Is Nothing scary about this movie? You know? Yeah, it's not scary for this time. To this now, not this generation. Fans of seen skier, your stuff and At that time like I, said when many movies that dealt with supernatural stuff this you know now. Somebody that was a was alive yet dead. Yeah, and people were way more superstitious back then. I completely agree so yeah. That must have been frightening. on top of that, you know. They were afraid that people weren't gonNA show up because people were really. You know. They're like Nah I don't see a supernatural movie wanting right there to. Come on. Yeah, but the stage play was so popular. In and it's like you said. Yeah, there's no blood film. They shy away from everything. Even know even the opening of caskets. Our. Camera kind of shies away from. Zoom really want to scare the audience too much now they show that like the hand coming out and. and. That was scary. Until. Van helsing opens up to live at the towards the end. And Bellas laying there, but other than that. No, they don't, but they don't really show him getting out of the coffin now ally show the woman in the beginning. GETTING OUT BUT Yeah a which is interesting, because it's like okay. This show her get now, but they won't show Bella. Everytime you seem coming out of the camera shies away in yeah. Point somewhere else. It's like he just appears yeah. Which I love that. But then you got like. You Know Back Before Dracula. Had that's for two. and. A silent film. Come out of coffins and doing all kinds of crazy. Shrek. But. That's Germany. I guess and It's funny because there was this movie was pre code when directly came out those before the head in Canada rating code. L. Wow no kidding, so you know okay, you know. Y-.

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
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
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.

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.
