"east bay" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves

"Attractions wherever you are. Roman Mars offers examples from his home base in the east bay cities along San Francisco Bay. The city of Oakland used to have an ad campaign to attract business conventions that said, the only thing we overlook is San Francisco. Oakland California is a sizable, multicultural city that's long been underappreciated thanks to its more illustrious neighbor. Roman Mars examines how beauty and function combine to make cities more livable, like where he works in Oakland and where he lives in Berkeley. Just right next door. He hosts the podcast 99% invisible and Romans written a guide to the hidden world of urban design. It's called the 99% invisible city, a field guide to the hidden world of everyday design. Right now, Roman joins us to help us explore Oakland and the east bay community's next to San Francisco through his eyes. Eyes that know how to find the 99% invisible. Roman thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. So I'm just fascinated and being a better observer in cities. Anybody who's a tour guide is challenged by helping their travelers look and see with a little more cleverness a little a little more insight, employ your 99% invisible city eye for your hometown for me. You live in Berkeley, you work in Oakland. Give me a little tour, walk around Berkeley, what might we see if we're able to find those fine design features that you target in your book and in your work? Well, Berkeley and Oakland, Berkeley in particular is littered with sidewalk stamps or one of my favorite little design features of a city and these are marks made by construction companies that tore up the sidewalk and laid a new one down. They often put a stamp down to indicate, like, when it was laid down and the company that made it. And I think reading that sort of information later on the surface of the sidewalk is really fascinating. So like an example in Berkeley is there was a company for a long time, a contracted company called snore. I don't even know if they're still exist. But you can see them as evidenced on the sidewalks because there's a ones dating back to around 1900, say snore, and then the one that says, later on, it's called sons, and then further later on, you'll find stamps that say snore brothers. You know, presumably marks this family business and where it's through the generations through the generations when they add the sons into the business and then the dad retires and the brothers take over and I just rigged that kind of information layer that's really available to you on the streets is I think a fun way to examine this. You can read a lot into street names, also, you know, that are just echoes of what used to be there. I mean, it's famous in European towns where this is where the butchers were. And this is where the chemical makers were. And so I suppose that's true even in more modern cities. Yeah for sure. Especially famous people and it's interesting to sort of notice where those names come from. You know, they have a lot of issues with this and in the south because there's lots of stuff commemorating people that we don't really commemorate anymore or shouldn't commemorate anymore because of their racist views. All kinds of stuff that you can read in. So you can go to there's a great historical museum in Berlin, and.

Wet Notes - 7-18-21

"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on

"More at sierra nevada dot com start hiking. Let's do the three of us set off up the main trail. It's a gorgeous day after some rain and the hillsides are a lovely green. I would describe it as a walk into history. Ten million years of history as we walk up and back in history. Michael is full of fun tidbits. We just saw white tailed. And there's red tailed. Hawks cooper's hawks. There's all different kinds of like when i was in outdoor educator. We used to say freddy fungus met alice algae and he took a liking to each other after twenty minutes of walking near the top of the trail. We took a hard turn their. We're walking around the other side of the mountain. Yeah we are. Yeah and we are going to be very close soon to where. The top of volcano was time we arrive. What i think is the volcano a steep. Drop off into a crater. But michael tells me. That's not the volcano people come here. Oh look there's a big deep pit there that was of also called derek. No that was. That was a mountain that was taken away. The pit was dug by mining companies. They used the rock to build bay area roads and other infrastructure but if the crater isn't the volcano where is it well. Michael says we're standing in. What would have been the middle of it right now. You would it be inside the volcano ten million years ago. It sounds really hot. I'd love to be able to be put in a time machine and taken there and to see any of the the lava were kind of the rocks or that. The smoke was coming out. At the time i kind of blows my mind. Think about it. Like we're standing in the middle of the volcano. It's amazing it's amazing to think about and yet most people have no idea that this exists ten million years ago these hills would have looked more like your typical volcano with a peak and lava flowing out of it. Now it doesn't look anything like that is at the top of the volcano. One time would have been just across the valley from what we're looking. It has eroded away. The volcano has tilted on. Its side it's on its side. No wonder it doesn't look like volcano to understand all this geology. I went to kimberly blizniuk. A professor of geology. At san jose state there is something called the mendocino. Triple junction geologists. Just call it that because of where they found it and the mendocino triple junction is right now. Currently off the coast of mendocino as the name suggests it's a place where three plate boundaries come together a triple junction. Ten million years ago. That junction used to be down here near the east bay. At sibley volcanic region. The three plates are colliding sliding past one another and overlapping. The place where they meet is like a t junction and there's a little hole that allows magma under the earth to bubble up that's called a slab window. It's the slab window where magma bursts up through the crust and form a volcano and what are now the east bay hills sibley volcanic regional preserve and it gets crazier over millions of years after lots of earthquakes. Moving tectonic plates and shifting pressure. The land began to full. that's hello ball keno got turned on its side. Bear with me here. The best way to think about it is if you take pages of a book and you squeeze them together magin one hand on the spine of a closed paperback book and the other hand on the opposite pages. Now squeeze the pressure coming from both sides forces one part and the other down and what happens is that the pages will fold into a bowl and a little arc. It looks like a sine wave at sibley. The pressure came from faults and the book and this analogy is the land. We get something called congressional. Deformation where we squeeze the earth because There's a lot of stress that's being transferred from a calaveras to the hayward fall as these folks are evolving and producing earthquakes. When you squeeze the land between these faults they start to fold and tilt back on the hiking trail at sibley preserve. I looked behind me and see the tallest peak around round top. It's a conical mountain and looks more like how i imagine. An extinct volcano would look but no it was the center of the volcano. It's really have to count imagine it right. It's really hard to imagine when geologists examined the rock that makes up round pop. They found a came from deep within the earth it was pushed up by thousands of earthquakes and lots of plate movement over millions of years. Rally top is being eroded away more slowly than the other mountains and that's why it looks kind of like it stands on its own and that's why people think it is the volcano. Well they're partly right. It was part of the volcano. The best evidence. I can see the volcano that once stood. Here are some really cool rocks. All those reminds you of a place in the south west. that's not california right because of that redder utah or like you're on mars or something very kind of alien landscape. But there's one more thing we haven't explored yet it really drops off Does so the bottom of the quarry is a labyrinth that was secretly built in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. It's a dirt path lined with grass and volcanic rock the trail loops back on itself creating a big circle about fifty feet across at the center. People have left trinkets. It was a beautiful round spot already. It already felt sacred. It already felt so good there helena. Mozzarella is the woman behind the labyrinth at the bottom of the quarry what michael called the most famous labyrinth in the bay area. Thirty years ago. Helena lived near sibley and would hike there often with her pet goat together. They'd wandered down to the bottom of the quarry. One day she decided to build a labyrinth out of mud. Labyrinth is one of the oldest contemplative transformational tools that mankind used for centuries. I mean centuries old at mazes what you get lost in. This is a labyrinth. It's universal so there's one way in and one way out. It's a type of walking meditation. The bay area has many labyrinths including famous ones in grace cathedral and lands end. I just did it just to do it right. I just did it with mud. Didn't even think it was going to last that long and actually it has been there thirty years. The east bay regional parks district doesn't condone rogue labyrinth builders but this one has been there so long and tended with such care that they look the other way.

It's a job in a growing field it deals with a hot commodity occa- and you know there's some opportunity there. I met someone with this job. His name is padma pelly and he's a dirt broker. Oh what a dirt broker. But he's not a fan of that title just to be clear. I hate that name. I'll be honest with you. Dirt has that negative connotation you know you gotta go wash up rate so dirt That's what you got for us today. Yeah his actual title. Though is land use manager works for granite rock which is a construction materials company but his job is really important because of climate change and right now he gets a lot of phone calls about dirt. Okay but from who exactly like who needs dirt so badly well where i met him is a good example of that On the shores of san francisco bay in the east bay and was on top of an earthen levee so basically a big pile of dirt that separates the water from the land but it was in rough shape. It's very much lower than it should be right now and very much narrower than it should be right now. Yeah that sounds bad. I mean levies are what prevent flooding and protect people and homes. Yeah exactly so. Pat helps get the dirt there to build up the levees and this area needs a lot around one hundred thousand dump trucks full. Well that's a lot. Yeah so he finds the people who wanted to get rid of dirt like construction projects that maybe you're digging out underground parking garage and he connects them with restoration projects that need it and there's more demand than he can handle right now because the oceans are rising with climate change and coastal cities are scrambling to defend themselves.

"Mount davidson crossed. We sent bay curious producer susie rancho to find out just west of twin peaks above a quiet residential neighborhood is mount davidson park. It's not well known or well marked but once you start. Walking one of the parks trails. You're surrounded by eucalyptus trees and you start to forget that you're in the middle of a major city coming up trail breath mason amazing view when you get to the top. You see two things of you that stretches all the way to the east bay and one very big cross. The cross is an imposing sight. It stands at one hundred three feet tall and ten feet wide at the base made of concrete it stands in stark contrast to blue sky and the eucalyptus grove that surrounds it to learn more about how it got here. I went to mount davidson historian. I- jackie proctor. Jackie says the crosses origin story goes back almost a hundred years to nineteen twenty-three two time when the area was a forest a guy named james decatur who is a employee of the western union telegraph company and with the ymca hikes through that forest and comes to the top and he sees this incredible view of downtown and he is just overwhelmed. Inspire knee writes this long essay about the experience. Peace and quiet were so profound that it seemed almost unbelievable that the noise and roar of a great city was only a few minutes behind them the solitude of the forest conveyed a sense of fastness quite as real as one would experience among the age.

Will Oysters Ever Make a Comeback in the Bay?

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff. This curing process helps kill any harmful bacteria and houghton's the shells. We have plenty of show. We have over ten thousand times here. Linda tells joseph.

What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?

"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

"Properties and yes, it's done what no other movie has done. You know. It's the only film to play continuously. Throughout the world since its release you know. I mean that's extraordinary. No other film has ever done that now Disney Disney owns a rocky horror picture show. And So. Later, in October, we're going to be doing a podcast of whatever happened to the Transylvanian, the rogue cast members from the ugly agency in London. We tracked them all down. Up Here that I would love to. And one of them is had an amazing career in show business and has been hiding in plain sight. All these years you according to be shocked shocked I know you Patriots Christ guys you know everything there is to know about rocky horror picture show and I did some deep deep research called friends and I found where this actor was and I was shocked to find the results of this. It's Simon Cowe. Hiding in plain sight up like like conic. Okay. But I don't want to talk about it but I just WanNa lay that out there for people. So a future show subscribe on itunes. PODCAST. So you've been doing your idol worship show online and you recently did one with some the cast from rocky horror picture show little now and Patricia Quinn and I was just wondering is Patricia Quinn anything like the Aden Zane impersonation. I mean, you know. I. Know. You, Bel- I mean you know I posted something about my experiences with Patricia after that Sach's team episode appeared and it certainly not to Gang up on or bully aiden Zane I have no interest in that. In fact I, I like a lot of what she's. Done. That being said you know Patricia is a friend of Mine I Love Patricia I. Think She's One of the most dynamics smart eccentric interesting. You know women I've ever met and so it's just to me it was it was sort of armor that especially when someone's a little lesser known outside of their characters especially in the United States. And the UK Patricia. Is a household name. She's a celebrity but you know over here she's known as oh, that's the woman that plays Magenta. So you have a drag queen do a trip. You kind like when jinxed little easy jinx was really bringing this character to an audience who didn't necessarily know who it was. You know I felt like it was a missed opportunity because I, mean let's face it like aiden didn't even do a British accent. Did you get a chance to talk to Patricia about it during a your conversation with her? No you're. Not Touching that one well, do you. About it. Now. I spoke with her yeah I mean I spoke with her about it when it happened. In. Then she put out a her own statement about it. She wasn't pleased on. I felt like you know I was celebrating the forty fifth anniversary of the rocky horror show and I don't think there's any real need to you know it's just silly drama to bring that up. You know what I mean I. It's not that interesting to me. and Y, you know it was something that wasn't fun. It wasn't. Shouldn't enjoy it in particularly like it. So I, just I didn't feel like it was my place, bring it up. But of course, some people were like, why didn't you ask her about it? Why didn't you ask her out? It's like. If you want to know how she feels google she puts she said how she felt about to be fair to an insane. You did play a music video to her and she said I cannot remember this at all. What was that little now? Portrayal. Patricia like I'm the other one. I'm Columbia the. Other. Note Patricia Magenta now was. Columbia. Okay I just saw Patricia I. Think I sent you the link I don't know if you've got a chance to watch it or not. But on Amazon prime, they have a hammer horror stories little stories about. Long and she plays a witch and one you get to see her topless. I. I have to check it out. I mean I think she's I mean if you've ever seen a rob zombies lords of Salem, Patricia is a scene stealer in that as a witch a fantastic. We haven't seen I'll have to check it out. It is interesting that a lot of these actors from rocky horror picture show pursued music careers after the film well there. Yeah Yeah Yeah I just think you know because there are so many musicals that do very well but like everybody was like instead of continuing musical theater like they pretty much all of them put out a single within the first couple of years. Really. Coming up on our show too. Yeah. So like I found some of the songs and stuff and even the Transylvanian is put out music of their own tomb. So Halloween this year is going to be honest it's a Saturday night it's going to be a free. Yeah. I just can't pull. That this was i. mean this was the year I was so excited like Oh my God I mean we had major plans, major plans for all sorts of stuff in you know I. Just. Is totally talked as they set canceled. you know for the sort of I mean whether we could do it or not as far as terrible goes at this point legally we just don't feel comfortable as a business opening you know. So. So terrible for sure not happening and we were planning a big giant party like a blowout party. That's obviously not happening that being said, it doesn't necessarily mean that nothing's GonNa Happen One thing I'm looking into his outdoor movie screenings. In kind of doing a couple of those and the other thing I'm working on is is a service called screaming telegram where you can hire. Terrible to send one of our clowns to their loved one. Discreet with them. Yeah like you know they'll deliver a message of hate to your friend. Don't ended up to the Internet syndicate name. Exactly exactly. I always thought when I saw those drag Queens celebrating. In Wisconsin, the season's winner of Ru Paul's drag race Jada essence essence hall. There were like you could really like torture people by just paying a drag queen a stand outside their sidewalk lip synching. especially like. Trump A. yod Darcy Outta wastes has something called meals on wheels an I. Literally delivered fucking food to people. I was a food delivery Queen who would give people food and then I would perform a lip sync on the sidewalk I mean these are desperate times. Did you do? I did Shirley Bassey's hey, big spender. Coping with would motivate I mean basically connected it would I would introduce my lip sync and say, please know.

"Nice. Now, I know people who've done ice packs. You know where they strap them to themselves does it work? Did you know that's a thing that you the people do why? No? I I take like. A wet. Towel and I put it around my neck like when I'm doing hardy sat up and whatnot and it amazingly cools down a lot. For. Sure. We do it in the haunted attraction where. Anyone it terror vault is wit in a very heavy costume for long periods of time, we have these vests that you can buy where you slide ice packs into them before the shifted than they wear the best underneath their costume. Now, in the witches of East Bay, you guys tackle on the themes of aging because obviously has to do with the witches of Eastwick. but you know in true peaches, Christ fashion. It really is a commentary on the modern lgbtq experience and one of the topics that. I thought was interesting. was you talked about cruel and mean Internet comments on? ESPN. At for from our vantage point, we see your community San Francisco as this happy little village of drag Queens who forgive each other and laugh it off and have a fabulous time. But there's been a lot of times where like it's not a well unified community at all. Of course not I mean. I I mean the well, the community here is defined so in so many different ways. So there's the the queer, the larger queer community, right which is huge, and then there's the drag community in them. With that you've got different communities depending on where people perform in what you know what groups they're part of you know. Like anywhere, there's going to be dissent amongst the groups and then descent between the groups and. But that's that's any I think. Community experienced might a my issue with the commentary was less a lot of that stuff I find to be constructive. Like actually when when, when Queens have had arguments or fights her, you know disagreements. Within the community I, I've often felt like it sometimes can lead to a better understanding or you know like a a better seen in a way a stronger. My issue really is the commentary on the Internet from anonymous people who aren't participating in the community, but just want to be mean you know just want to be Shitty and unfortunately that's you know that's the. Element that the Internet attracts. And do you think is like is it just the structure of that system? That sort of like allows people to disconnect with their ability to be compassionate or you somewhere like lady bunny has a lot of anxiety over being canceled. And I'm like nobody does she does is obsessed with canceled culture. Like no one's GONNA cancel. Idiot being canceled been why do you say all this shit? She says, well, that's why she says she's she's worried about canceled, but it's just like. You know who's really canceling you your most of the time you're canceling yourself. You know you're not willing conversation and grow as a person and I would say that you and lady bunny are willing to do that. So it's kind like regardless of whether you have the vision to be wiser beyond your years. You're willing to listen to others who disagree with you and reflect them grow and that's all anybody's asking J. K. Rowling to do. And the insufferable immovable stone gender. IMMUTABLE gender. So bizarre. I don't get if anything now as far as aging goes. One of the wonderful things about getting older is realizing you don't know Shit, and you know you grow out of that no it all period that. So many of us suffer from his young people and I think it's a weird when an older person doesn't get to that point where they realize. Oh I am still teachable I'm still learning. I'm still evolving when you think you know everything and you don't budge from that. You know. In your twenties, I mean good luck. You know those are the those are the lonely you know Disconnected miserable people who sit on mining shit about everybody. When so weird about Jake heroin to is like you know in the ninety s when those books I came out or the early two thousands of all the Christians like my kids are not reading that book like I'm not. You know all the Conservatives wanted nothing to do with magic and then all the people take it up and just loved it and celebrated it, and then she comes around and does this kind of like you know anti, trans stoppages like Wash. Seemingly very pro clear. You know. But I guess she draws the line at at you know being transgender or something like it's just. So the whole concept of turf is so sad you know an to me it's it's very similar to what we're experiencing like in the world especially in our own country like with these dark dark days, it's like don't you fuck in realize that like if? All of us that are like Hor or middle class or lower middle class. All of us that aren't millionaires all of us that aren't quote unquote rich you know your average citizen of this country. If we all got together all of us, we would have tremendous power to change our lives in the lives of our new generations to come. We could have whatever we want to have but it behooves the billionaires and millionaires to keep racism alive to keep homophobia alive and to keep a separate it because you know that that works for them, they get to stay on top and we get to just continue. Fighting with one, another divide and conquer. Divide them I mean, that's classic. It's so classic in with the turf. It's the same thing. It's like Trans People don't you this all misogyny you're you're participating in this like you're bringing into this conservative bullshit and like you know. So it's this weird thing where railing in many ways has not been you know conservative we know that like if you follow her career, she was a progressive woman as far as concepts about clearness and I'm feminism. Gay. She gave away. She was a billionaire she giving away enough money that she would no longer.

"Friends. And it was almost like we called each other's bluff like she said that to me and then I called her, you know a little while later said, what do you think about the movie the which is twist and she said I love it I'll do it. You know. So it was it was one thing after the next and then it was me saying and what do you think about you wearing a curly Susan Serandon wig she said I'll do it. I'll do whatever the show you know and it was basically like that of course when the ship was hitting the fan and the show was falling apart as all of my shows do. Your show that show literally fell apart though didn't it like part of the scenery fell down. That was a nightmare we'll be talking about that. As part of the screening. Part of the screening part of my IRA agreeing to put these shows online is that that want to turn them into their own event because I don't think screening videos of live events is satisfying I mean you know unless you've got a bazillion dollars even a you know it the best parts of truth or dare for example, are the behind the scenes parts, right. So know I'm really focusing on trying to create new content and one of the reasons I wanted to start with the witches of East Bay was because of you know I loved how Coco was basically trusting me and then there was that point. I don't think she. She trusted me anymore. You talked about this before Coco is the time when she performs. She's up there. It's a cabaret style show she talks to the audience she she does her songs, but it's all you know it's rehearsed. There's very little improvisation involved in all and you put her in one of your productions where he just you know it's like helter skelter land, right? I mean, it's it's a free for all I mean it's not the way theater should ever be done. It is a total. You know it's a, it's a total. Chaotic race to the finish line and we never really get there. You know like the girls fly into town on a Wednesday and no matter how much prepping my crew has done if you don't have the talent but for three days before a major event, you know there will be mistakes you know things will not work out and I mean that show in particular like. The morning at the show. I had to fire someone very dramatic way. Well, you'll find out. At the screaming, I want save some of it for the screaming you know. But yeah, there was a big drama that happened that morning and you know a crew member or it was. It was a big big part of the show of actually the finale that we were counting on that this particular crew member, it was their responsibility and they still weren't able to deliver you know we. Got There for tack and things still weren't working and. I fired the person and sent them away and had to come up with a plan B. and you know the cast for all staring at me like she's losing her mind and you know and so you get all that information. Because, like if you were in the audience that night, you didn't know what was supposed to happen you know. But it'll make sense when you see the show and so then witches of East Bay is going to be on Thursday October first kicks off Halloween season at six PM Pacific Time Nine PM Eastern time at peaches price dot live. Right I have it on video and I've seen it and I really enjoy Owen Yeah? I have my ways oh that's right you. Have to say it's. These I'm so glad you're making these available to the public because there really are a testament to this fantastic community. You have your, of course, incredible creativity and humor and wisdom and play writing skills. Eight. It's just a really delight that you manage to document these shows, and now you're going to be to shell them and and you know talk about him well. I knew that we were documenting them for a time like this Mike Odd Thank God you did I guess yeah. No I mean, yes. Absolutely I mean you know it's sad to me is the reason they're so well documented from the past ten years is because the first you know ten fifteen years of stuff in San Francisco was not well documented. I think back on all those you know shows I did with Heck. Lena, you know at the stud or early midnight mass shows and like some of them, we don't even have pictures for or none that I'm aware of you know they just live in our minds. So that's Why we started doing this podcast was we weren't just like we were like right in the same boat as you were doing very similar shows here in Chicago and I was just like I put so much energy time and money into these shows and at the end, it's just a happy memory. Photographer to shoot some of the shows and it was about one hundred dollars and stuff back then. To shoot a show on people like why are you spending a hundred dollars to shoot the show I'm like so that you know in ten years, there's photos and then sometimes you get these photos to. Photographers and they were absolutely crap and you're like, you spend one hundred dollars. Out of Focus finding good event photographers is harder people saying you know for sure you know some of the best photos of me and my early days and drag were Jason Smith took him and thank God. You know he was there for all those things and and you know. Jason Smith. Yes. The from Jason. It'd be the most common name I've ever heard. Jason. Common Well Jason Jason. award-winning. He actually owns Jason Smith DOT COM so. That's that's actually quite impressive. Who was an early adapter? Yeah. He he actually Jason and I converted one of the first gay newspapers into digital at a time where everything was cut in pay definitely ahead of the game I mean. For All all those people like myself who are like Internet will never amount to shit. Idyllwild like you like you believe all the guests. You are some of the most generous and dedicated and insightful and fun to have on the show. And I would say that you certainly valued the Internet way before you guys probably saw. Like. If it wasn't going like if you were totally off the record and it wasn't. Something that could get you in trouble I know deep down inside what you would say is that I'm your favorite guest of all time I would say actually I'll put it this way. Buddy's writing a really nice article about us, but we can't talk about it. May Lead to some really amazing things and they asked me to put together a list of ten podcasts. Of. All Time Done and I was like peaches has to be on that list and it was really really really hard to pick one show and I was just like, let's. Do the one where we talk about how how drag queens can try not to smell. Love that one would do love that one it was so fun Keno. And it was in my mind. It was like when we recorded I had just been around a drag queen. You just reeked for breeze and so it was it was really bothering me. On top. And you're just like but I think a lot of people don't had to be like it's Chanel number they don't get that drag is very complicated. That is involving 'cause you're kind of like the glamorous Las Vegas Showgirl version of a Disney theme Park Matt Scott Oh. Yeah and expect you to be superhuman. It's like how do you wear all that shit you know including keeping you know the heat from your head like is unable to escape and you know not expect us to sweat or stink or you know it's impossible to know.

"east bay" Discussed on Feast of Fun

"Friends and it was almost like we called each other's bluff like she said that to me and then I called her you know a little while later said, what do you think about the movie The which is? Twist and she said I love it. I'll do it. You know. So it was it was one thing after the next and then it was me saying and what do you think about you wearing a curly Susan Serandon wig she said I'll do it. I'll do whatever the show you know and it was basically like that of course when the ship was hitting the fan and the show was falling apart as all of my shows do. Your show that show literally fell apart though didn't it like part of the scenery fell down That was a nightmare we'll be talking about that. As part of the screening. Part of the screening part of my IRA agreeing to to put these shows online is that I want to turn them into their own event because I don't think screening videos of live events is satisfying i. mean you know unless you've got a bazillion dollars? Even a you know it the best parts of truth or dare for example, are the behind the scenes parts, right so you know I'm really focusing on trying to create new content and one of the reasons I wanted to start with the witches of East Bay was because of you know I loved how Coco was basically trusting me and then there was that point i. don't think she. She trusted me anymore. Talked about this before Coco is the time when she performs you know she's up there. It's a cabaret style show she talks to the audience she she does her songs, but it's all you know it's rehearsed. There's very little improvisation involved in all and you put her in one of your productions where he just you know it's like helter skelter land, right? I mean, it's it's a free for all. I mean it's not the way theater should ever be done. It is a total. You know it's a, it's a total. Chaotic race to the finish line, and we never really get there. You know like the girls fly into town on a Wednesday and no matter how much prepping my crew has done if you don't have the talent but for three days before a major event, you know there will be mistakes you know things will not work out and I mean that show in particular like. The morning at the show I had to fire someone very dramatic way. Well you'll find out. At the screaming I, want save some of it for the screaming you know. But. There was a big drama that happened that morning and you know a crew member or it was. It was a big big part of the show of actually the finale that we were counting on that this particular crew member, it was their responsibility and they still weren't able to deliver you know we. Got There for tack and things still weren't working and I fired the person and sent them away and had to come up with a plan B. and you know the cast for all staring at me like she's losing her mind and you know and so you get all that information. Like if you were in the audience that night, you didn't know what was supposed to happen you know. But it'll make sense when you see the show and so. These bay is going to be on. Thursday. October first kicks off Halloween season at six PM Pacific. Time Nine PM Eastern time at Peaches Christ dot live. Right. I have it on video and I've seen it and I really enjoy Owen. Yeah. I have my ways Oh. That's right you. Have to say it's These I'm so glad you're making these available to the public because there really are a testament to this fantastic community. You have your, of course, incredible creativity and humor and wisdom and play writing skills. Eight. It's just a really delight that you manage to document these shows, and now you're going to be to shell them and and you know talk about him well. I knew that we were documenting them for a time like this Mike Odd Thank God. You did I guess. Yeah. No I mean yes absolutely. I mean you know it's sad to me is the reason they're so well documented from the past ten years is because the first you know ten fifteen years of stuff in San Francisco was not well documented. I think back on all those you know shows I did with Heck Lena you know at the stud or early midnight mass shows and like some of them, we don't even have pictures for or none that I'm aware of you know they just live in our minds. So that's Why we started doing this podcast was we weren't just like we were like right in the same boat as you were doing very similar shows here in Chicago and I was just like I put so much energy time and money into these shows and at the end, it's just a happy memory. Photographer to shoot some of the shows and it was about one hundred dollars and stuff back then. To shoot a show on people like why are you spending a hundred dollars to shoot the show? I'm like so that you know in ten years, there's photos and then sometimes you get these photos to. Photographers and they were absolutely crap and you're like, you spend one hundred dollars. Out, of Focus finding good event photographers is harder people saying you know for sure you know some of the best photos of me and my early days and drag were Jason Smith took him and thank God. You know he was there for all those things and and you know. Jason Smith? Yes. The Jason Jason. It'd be the most common hurt. Jason. Common Well Jason Jason. Jason. award-winning? He actually owns Jason Smith DOT COM so. That's that's actually quite impressive. Who was an early adapter? Yeah. He he actually Jason and I converted one of the first gay newspapers into digital at a time where everything was cut in pay definitely ahead of the game I mean. For All, all those people like myself who are like Internet, will never amount to shit. Idyllwild like you like you believe all the guests. You are some of the most generous and dedicated and insightful and fun to have on the show. and. I would say that you certainly valued the Internet way before you guys probably saw. Like. If it wasn't going like if you were totally off the record and it wasn't Something that could get you in trouble. I know deep down inside what you would say is that I'm your favorite guest of all time I would say actually I'll put it this way. Buddy's writing a really nice article about us, but we can't talk about it. May Lead to some really amazing things and they asked me to put together a list of ten podcasts. Available time Done and I was like peaches has to be on that list and it was really really really hard to pick one show and I was just like let's. Do the one where we talk about how how drag queens can try not to smell. Love that one would do love that one it was so fun Keno. And it was in my mind it was like when we recorded I had just been around a drag queen. You just reeked for breeze and so it was it was really bothering me. On top. And you're just like but I think a lot of people don't had to be like, it's Chanel. Number they don't get that drag is very complicated. That is involving 'cause you're kind of like the glamorous Las Vegas Showgirl version of a Disney theme. Park Matt. Scott Oh yeah and expect you to be superhuman. It's like how do you wear all that shit you know including keeping you know the heat from your head like is unable to escape and you know not expect us to sweat or stink or you know it's impossible to know.

"Hello Hi Peaches Christ. Yes it is what your scariest movie. Nights scariest. Say What's your favorite scary movie That's a nightmare on ELM street in one. I had a really scary movie. It's called the Selfie on my phone. On my God and I, take my clothes off and I look into it. And I see myself growing old. Oh. Oh, I used to be an atheist but then I realized I was a sex God. But now on a sex card decline and nobody wants to worship at my temple. Because I've been stuck at home during covert quarantine. No one loves me anymore not even myself. How are you doing today peaches? I I was doing fine a moment ago. I Just I. Don't even know what was. Not. Sure. Well, we're kind of like thinking about you you have. Your opening your your default. Clearing, the COBWEBS and showing the audiences, what they are throughout the world with really want is some of your productions that you've done over the years you during the witches of East Bay, which is you know play on the witches of Eastwick, which kind of deals with. Women of a certain age and how they feel. That that's what you doing. Accuser. So used to hear that all the time this leg. I thought that you were just like you know any the the average gay guy going through his. You know mid life. Crisis. Interesting thing, right 'cause we live in a consumer society and we sort of been making money or being taught or whatever to not embrace aging and to look at the aging palace as something to be feared. Sometimes. Abhorred emphasis on the. When you're eighteen, they'll tell you when you're over twenty six nobody wants you then you need S. Over thirty nobody wants you then your early thirties forties death if you're gay and then this comes you know the goal and then you get those ages and you're just like I'm just as fierce as I was back then. Yeah I mean in some in some ways. I would argue that maybe you're fiercer. I think that well, culturally right it's it's not in every culture. Is there sort of this idea of growing old being a bad thing, but it's definitely an American idea for sure or Western young and then I think if you are queer especially a gay man, you know we we adopted so many of the worst parts of. Misogyny. and. So we apply that to each other and then I I yeah I think for a lot of queer men sadly. You know it's a real thing. It's a real problem. Well, it even like in talking about intergenerational relationships or even like you know if you are somebody who is above the age of thirty and you're at a bar and you start flirting with somebody, you know this is the things like these twenty year old tw- inks are hit me on the hookup. APPS but out in public there they're like there goes all thousand. And I met you were sending me or Dick Pic last week. Are you talking to your little secrets? We go out in public. Wearing a mask. Anymore. I'm really loving the mask culture because finally. People to see my face and they can. Say. They just don't even see it. Well, it's like it's like a facelift in sunway tooth kissing goodbye nobody knew. What you're doing you're you're giving into those those ideas of you know this negative ideas about aging. This is about like you know for years we've heard Middle Eastern women saying I really like hiding my face and feels very comfortable. People aren't after. Them there not to stare at me yes? Yes. Yes. We're the mask sunglasses like ray bans with mirrors on them and sometimes even a little bike helmet or a hat. So I'm basically just a robot out perfect on everybody just staring at you know staring at anything I want without repercussions about like when you're like totally like staring at a guy is like in you're wearing the mask he can't see when you like licking your lips underneath the mash. Literally drooling once in a while might might mask. The wetness comes through but. Like. Little. Otherwise they how do they know and this is a this is good for straight men to know this like when you're not when you're a straight guy and you think you're too cool for the mask, all of us gaze wearing masks we're just per serving on you so hard. With that information. Jim and I see this guy and I'm just like Oh. My God. He's so fad he's just like A moment your way, and I'm just like, yes in the way my heart. Yeah, it's true. You're right. You're right. That we should, we should probably get back to the which is. How generous of you? To open the show with such. An amazing plug for this upcoming online screening that we're doing, and it's true that that show in a way was about I mean I talked to cocoa and chat about the fact that we were. Older Queens and that that's what the show was going to be about. So you're right. That is what the show is about. It's about is this all there is kind of thing but see ever since I've known Coco Cocos characters been this cool hip tell it like it is. You know Aunty in the Bronx who's like doesn't Old Lady for thirty years and this is why we called got dress up in drag. I think at least for me when I was in my early twenties, it was like, Hey, you can be whoever you want to be for the rest of your life as long as you can get a shake and go wig like Coca Peru does and They'll make it. How did you get cocoa to like actually change wigs because she's wearing? Like she has. A demented Jan Brady. I guess I, get you. We this was the first show. We've ever done together and we had been. In some comedy shows together doing drag Queens of comedy and she passing Lee said like why haven't you ever asked me to be in one of your shows and I was like well I mean you never I I I just can't imagine you saying Yes to being one of my shows I. Think you're too good for it. And that was being completely serious like I worship You I. must you choose? Fanta mean Coca Peru I'm just in all of her talent and yet we were this is towards the beginning of are becoming closer.

"When you're a drag queen yard time less well at least until your weight starts to break down and your makeup start crack at the end of the night. But time comes for us all even the most legendary drag queens and that doesn't always have to be a scary thing. One of our favorite movies is the witches of Eastwick, which pits three icons, shares, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle pfeiffer against the devil himself as they turned to witchcraft to manage the midlife crisis today San Francisco drag. IMPRESARIO, peaches, Christ chats with us about opening up her vaults of drag parodies for an incident viewing party of her show. The witches of East Bay where Peaches Coco Peru and Chad michaels take a look at what happens when three drag legends get older and a world dominated by pesky drag Queens plus why do J. K. Rowling and other high profile celebrities come out against trans. Inclusion eighties gay icons that became TV commercials, spokespersons and look at the amazing life of Drag Queen Hegi leg. I'm Fausto for no I'm Mark Zalin and this is feast. Five. Before we begin. Let's listen to the trailer for a peaches crisis the witches of East Spe starring Coca, Peru Chad Michaels and Thomas Dekker. You know when you're young queen and you don't understand anything everything's really confusing. CONTOURING and Tucking. You think that when you grow up and become a seasoned queen, that's GonNa make sense and. Still waiting for that day. That day ever come I've discovered that when you're truly fully relaxed, you can open your eyes and see what the world has in store for you. For me, my eyes are most open after I've enjoyed a hot steaming cup of celestial seasonings tension Tamer to. What do you? It's a short life isn't it? We all have fears. Sometimes I i. look in the Mirror and I see everything disintegrating faster and faster. A long career in drag is not for the week. Just burned my mouth. So fucking badly you know life may be short for some. But even if there's like a nuclear Holocaust, I plan on sticking around and partying with the cockroaches not really afraid of death that doesn't mean I don't have fears. You know what I see see snakes like hundreds of them and they're like crawling all over me and then disappear I'm just not there anymore it's really trippy. I don't mind the growing old or that it's a short lifer, the snakes or any of that the the pain that scares me I don't know why there needs to be so much pain in the world often caused by anonymous trolls commenting on social media. Deal the deck. Down here we just. Play the sandwiches. Hello. Hi. Peaches. Christ. Yes it is. What's Your scariest movie? Nights scariest. Say, what's your favorite scary movie. Well that's a nightmare on ELM street. One. I had a really scary movie. It's called the Selfie on my phone. On my God and I take my clothes off and I look into it. And I see myself growing old OH. Oh I used to be an atheist, but then I realized I was a sex God. But now on a sex card decline and nobody wants to worship at my temple. Because I've been stuck at home during covert quarantine. No one loves me anymore, not even myself. How are you doing today peaches? I I was doing fine a moment ago. I. Just I don't even know what was. Not sure. Well, we're kind of like thinking about you you have. Your opening your your default. Clearing the COBWEBS and showing the audiences, what they are throughout the world with really want is some of your productions that you've done over the years you during the witches of East Bay which. You know play on the witches of Eastwick, which kind of deals with. Women of a certain age and how they feel. That that's what you doing. Accuser. So used to hear that all the time this leg. I thought that you were just like you know any the the average gay guy going through his. You know mid life crisis. Interesting thing right. 'cause we live in a consumer society and we sort of been making money or being taught or whatever to not embrace aging and to look at the aging palace as something to be feared. Sometimes. Abhorred emphasis on the. When. You're eighteen. They'll tell you when you're over twenty six nobody wants you then you need S. Over thirty nobody wants you then your early thirties forties death if you're gay and then this comes you know the goal and then you get those ages and you're just like I'm just as fierce as I was back then. Yeah I mean in some in some ways. I would argue that maybe you're fiercer. I think that well, culturally right it's it's not in every culture. Is there sort of this idea of growing old being a bad thing, but it's definitely an American idea for sure or Western young and then I think if you are queer especially a gay man, you know we we adopted so many of the worst parts of. Misogyny. And so we apply that to each other and then I i. Yeah. I think for a lot of queer men sadly. It's a real thing. It's a real problem. Well, it even like in talking about intergenerational relationships or even like you know if you are somebody who is above the age of thirty and you're at a bar and you start flirting with somebody, you know this is the thing is like a lot of these twenty year old tw- inks are hit me on the hookup APPs but out in public, there are like there goes all thousand. And I met you were sending me or Dick Pic last week are you talking to your little secrets? We go out in public. Worrying a mask. Anymore. I'm really loving the mask culture because finally. People to see my face and they can. Say. They just don't even see it. Well, it's like it's like a facelift in sunway tooth kissing goodbye nobody knew. What you're doing you're you're giving into those those ideas of you know this negative ideas about aging. This is about like you know for years we've heard Middle Eastern women. I really like hiding my face and feels very comfortable. People are after. Them they not to stare at me Yes yes. Yes. We're the mask sunglasses like ray bans with mirrors on them and sometimes even a little bike helmet or a hat. So I'm basically just a robot out perfect on everybody just staring at you know staring at anything I want without repercussions about like when you're like totally like staring at a guy is like in you're wearing the mask he can't see when you like licking your lips underneath the mash. Literally drooling once in a while might might mask. The wetness comes through but. Like little, otherwise they how do they know and this is a this is good for straight men to know this like when you're not when you're a straight guy and you think you're too cool for the mask, all of us gaze wearing masks we're just. Per serving on you so hard. With that information. Jim and I see this guy and I'm just like Oh my God he's so bad. He's just like. A moment your way and I'm just like, yes. In the way my heart. Yeah it's true. You're right. You're right. That we should we should probably get back to the which is. How generous of you? To open the show with such such an amazing plug for this upcoming online screening that we're doing, and it's true that that show in a way was about I mean I talked to cocoa and chat about the fact that we were. Older Queens and that that's what the show was going to be about. So you're right. That is what the show is about. It's about is this all there is kind of thing but he ever since I've known Coco Cocos characters been this cool hip tell it like it is. You know Aunty in the Bronx who's like doesn't Old Lady for thirty years and this is why we called got dress up in drag I. think at least for me when I was in my early twenties, it was like, Hey, you can be whoever you want to be for the rest of your life as long as you can get a shake and go wig like Coca Peru and. They'll make it. How did you get cocoa to like actually change wigs because you know she's wearing Like she has. A demented Jan Brady. I guess I get you. We this was the first show. We've ever done together and we had been. In some comedy shows together doing drag Queens of comedy and she passing Lee said like, why haven't you ever asked me to be in one of your shows and I was like Well I mean you never I I I just can't imagine
