Fresh update on "frankenstein" discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season

"Hi this is Julia State. Hardly from SMALLVILLE and GM division I'm less Redican. Fringe asking. Robert Patrick James Marsters sci-fi Talk Tony Tomato this is. Colin Cunningham known as Major Davis Esi One stargate as you I should say either. This was Christopher hired l. from sanctuary. I've played montague. John drew. Hi I'm George and I listened to Sifi Talk. This is Tony to Lana welcomed. My TRIBECA Film Festival Coverage. Our first film is Frankenstein's army basically takes place in the waning days of the second world. War As a battalion of Russian soldiers, find themselves literally lost in Enemy Territory they stumble upon a village that appears to have been decimated by something unseen and discover a mad scientist played by Hell Boys Karel Roden, who conducts experiments to fuse flesh and steel and making an unstoppable army of dead soldiers. The film's director is Richard Rep Horst and he spoke to me on the TRIBECA film. Red Carpet you know for this film hits. Its own standalone film. It's not based on your previous web work. Is that correct? That's correct, yes. And as far as you know this one what's interesting to me is that you actually sketched out a lot of designs of the creatures ahead of time, and then you went to unreal and said this is what I WANNA do. Described that process a little bit how that went. it's well I. Know I'm real for a very long time. So I Enclosed in real in very early stage of development, and I was sending them sketches to see what is. Possible A or north if you will do only practical effects, because that was our main Goal my our goal. And I just started to. Projects exactly what I saw in front of me. And I send it to unreal and I think ninety percent of the design survives and talk about your cast. His Caro's portrayal of Victor I understand isn't going traditional. Victor Frankenstein Way. Yeah Carol Traits Victor Frankenstein of the Grand Grand Grand Son, but it. We are going to do a completely one eighteen on the character. what what I like to do is i. If you know exactly, why are you WANNA end? You have a lot of freedom to investigate. What are other possibilities and cut over Dan has such a rich. mind that was really eager to look at what s his ideas about his character and a lot of his ideas reps around. The character bitch is being written in the script and from when we started doing that. Is it started to grow and he became. Something totally unique and on its own. It's absolutely uncompetitive to any of. Traditional French tank character, Reno so far, and that's exactly what I wanNA to have and another thing, too. It's also It's a found footage type of film as well at that must have been a bit of a challenge as far as shooting and planning. As a total challenge, this was really. Extremely extremely difficult because. we need to prepare everything into details details, and for the Fisher Texas fussell motion nightmare, because everything needed to succeed in takes longer than two minutes. Practical sex normally you can cut them up in an all white close close at etc, and now we needed to do it all in one take, which was really extremely difficult and we really looked at. What we did was. Content that it's nine thousand nine hundred eighty, and if you want to make this film how we'll do it. And that's. Gifts. You A lot of creativity. Normally with computers, you will look for different solutions because but their own also looking for. Practical Effects, it's also shooter. The. Early Eighty styling before. It gave say totally new kind of. Approach? It's not very easy, but I think it's. The Best of his and what you have planned coming up? Is there something in the works you're planning? Yeah I. Have Something in Averse Planning and it's quite far developed. And what I what I learned from Francis Army, if you keep faith through your fishing. It becomes. It's hard to classify into Asia. And, the same thing is happening with this new project is hard to classify finisher. And I think. Then, that's a sign that that you are on the right track. And well with this when you can't go wrong Nazis and the Frankenstein creatures man that sounds like a lot of fun. Yeah, yeah, it is, it's. It's a lot of fun I think moviemaking should be a lot of fun and what I want is entertaining people. I'm going to deliver I want to. Make people enjoying and having them a great experience, I that now she says to me to in my eyes, those are the most evil is the most evil thing. Ever happened, so it's a big risks to. Transfer it into an entertaining kind of way. It's I know it's. Smooth ice bet ve onto to break that do. Great. Thank you so much. Appreciate King taking few minutes really looking forward to seeing this. Thank you. Our next entry is from the producer of the Sundance. Smash hit the pact and writer of Xavier Against the divide Mr Jones is really about a journey into a nightmare. That's pretty real. Even daylight literally brings no relief.

Google’s much improved Pixel Buds are finally here

"Back when the pixel phones were refreshed. You might remember that. Google announced the hundred and seventy nine dollars. Second Gen Pixel Bud wireless ear buds. They were to be Google's first. True wireless ear buds eliminating that fabric tether that the first generation had and the emphasis at the time was on the hands. Free Google assistant voice control capabilities. However they weren't immediately made available delayed for six months or something as Google said at the time. Well it's been six months. It's spring and finally. The new Pixel Buds are here and at the Verge Chris. Welsh says. The design is much improved. Wireless charging is cool. Google assistant works well and the sound quality is very good. However one small caveat quote new to this iteration as soft stabiliser arc. Think of it like a silicone fin on each earbud. That's meant to help the Pixel buds stay anchored in your ears. I had no issues with comfort. But we've been testing a few pairs of Pixel Buds and dinner and Becca. Bo said the ARC caused some soreness during extended listening and quote. I should describe this. It's not a silicon thin. That goes around the outside of your ear. It's actually it tucks inside your kind ear canal a little bit. I can see how if your ears aren't shaped correctly. That would be a little uncomfortable. So I know if that's a deal breaker or not I guess it depends on your ear and I mean one advantage of the design is the fact that you don't have anything dangling from your head if you'll recall that does mean it sort of looks like you've got Frankenstein. Monster style bolts in your ears. But I guess that's an a weirder than any other design that's out there. And frankly the coolest application of these things remains the ability to use google. Translate in real time if you're traveling. And Encountering Foreign Tongues Chris's conclusion in his review. Was this quote at one. Hundred seventy nine dollars. The Pixel Buds are priced at the same level as Jabra's elite seventy five t ear buds. Which is still personally pick over these for their more dynamic sound and because you don't miss out on features depending on what phone you have. There's unsurprisingly no pixel buds APP for IOS. But if Google assistant has a decent sized presence in your life you might be willing to make do with the downsides of Google's new ear buds lacking base and the occasional swell in outside noise for the convenience of being able to call upon it anytime anywhere

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.

Are You Willing to Redo It All?

"I WANNA start with prime example. When you decide to Redo things in Your Business Redo your project. How could pay off in the recent motion picture release of Sonic the Hedgehog a movie that cost sixty five million dollars to produce the features allaster Jim Carey and millions? More has been spent on marketing but about six months ago. They screen the film to a live audience. They want to get some feedback. They WANNA find out how well this is going to do in the box office. A couple of things happened number one. The film absolutely bombed and it wasn't because of the story or the acting. It was because of the animation. In fact somebody actually filmed clips and gus screen shots of this film. When they screened it and spread it all over social media and the twitter sphere and the blogosphere blew up there was outrage to. How Sonic the HEDGEHOG? The character was designed people. Were saying it's too lifelike. It doesn't look like the original. Sonic and what a waste of an opportunity. Remember they invested ninety five million dollars to make this movie and in the screening. They find out. People are outraged the G- out of the screening and they see the Internet is turned against them. People can't stand the way sonic looks at this point. The producers of the film had to make a choice. Ignore the critics and role with the movie as is or say. Hey we need to rethink this. We need to kind of make sure. This film is a success and take the criticism seriously in fact it cost paramount. Who produced the film thirty five million dollars to make these corrections to make these edits to the animations and Sonic? This was a huge Chris. They took to listen to the feedback. And say hey. We're going to another thirty five million dollars to get this right but it paid off. The movie just got released last week. And it's breaking all kinds of records. So why do I share the story? Well there's a pivotal time in your business or in the development of your product where you need to decide. Do I reinvest and improve the product based on feedback? Do I redo things even though it's going to cost me a whole bunch of money whole bunch of time? Well paramount did. Is they decided? Hey instead of trying to double down or dig our heels on a product that didn't get reviews. Let's take this opportunity of six months to get it right. Yes we're going to invest more money but we're probably going to lose more money if we just insist on rolling with the movie as is but more importantly when asked the director Jeff Fowler said we would be doing a injustice to the fan base of sonic the Hedgehog. If we got this wrong we have one shot to get this right and we got him do. What's right for the fans? This is somebody who's putting the customer first understanding that the customer is the person that pays the bills. They're the ones that GonNa make or break your business. She got a police them. You GotTa make sure you're delivering something that they actually want and need. I want to share a story from my own business where I had to. Redo things altogether. I actually to do a few times before we are Webinar. Software Company back in two thousand fourteen Webinar Ninja. We actually released a course called the DIY Webinar Guide. And this was a course on how to put together your own. Webinar using various tools like Google hangouts at the time and Email marketing software and video hosting software and landing page software. And how to put it all together and Frankenstein it together to run a Webinar. We thought. Hey that's what we do every day right to run a Webinar. How can we make it easy and other people? Let's create a guy to show them how to put it together. We put this guy down the world and it totally flopped. We got to sales and one of the sales was a charge back. That means somebody called the credit card company and said I want to refund. The other sale was actually from a friend in front of the show. John Lee Dumas from entrepreneur on fire. Who just basically bought it to support our work. We quickly had to make a decision on this Ossete. Not something that people want. How can we redo this so we can make sure we deliver what people want so we learned from the experience at? Hey people actually don't want to do the work. They want a tool that does afford up enter our webinar software and we started with a very small Beta version and we released it in April. Two thousand fourteen and the rest is history. Well technically it is but throughout the history we had to reiterate the software and get better and better improve upon a based on customer feedback. We still do this today. All our customer feedback is what informs our roadmap for one hundred Ingeba in two thousand twenty and beyond so listening to your customers finding out what they want and improving your product based on that iterating improving. This is essential in today's marketplace. You can't live in a vacuum even apple who's known for just kind of doing its own thing and saying. Hey you're gonNA love whatever we put out there. They listen to feedback and they changed their keyboard on the macbook pros and use the old keyboards back in two thousand and fifteen with a butterfly mechanism Because the customer said. Hey we want the old keyboard this new one. We don't love so much but the question is. Are you willing to go back to the drawing board and Redo things a lot of us? Don't make that decision we say. Hey let's just keep on selling it. Let me lower the price. Let me add some bonuses and not owning up to the fact that hey the product is not what it needs to be. I need to Redo things the promises that often we have this feeling of sunk costs or what's called the sunk cost fallacy. We put in so much into something we feel like. Hey I put it in all the stuff put all this time effort money. Let me just keep going in this direction because I put so much into that investment not understanding. Okay the investments great. But it's time to now and Redo things and don't deny the actual criticism the actual feedback. They're getting from customers

They Didn't Charge Me a Dime

"I just had a great day skiing and I wanted to talk about my ski boot for a minute here because every excuse knows at your boots are way the most important piece of gear. You've got way more important your skis and I've recently looked at my boots. And this pivot here with serta holds the entire tire boot together. I mean you've got these two main pieces and this pivot and Miss Pivot hold the boot together and I looked down in. This pivot wasn't there it was gone. It was missing in one hand. I'm like Jeff your skin hard enough. You're getting after your blew up your boot. That's really cool. The negative is boots are very expensive. Like eight eight or nine hundred dollars expensive. Plus it's an investment of time. I mean to go get a decent boot fitting is like ninety minutes or two hours and we have a good feeling is is amazing and to have to go replace boots commissioner. It's a pain so in any case I walked into a shop here in Durango and I said is this fixable can you. Can you fix this thing. They're like I'm sorry. Once you blow this up you gotta get some new boots total bummer. But I wasn't so sure about that answer so then. I walked into Ski Barn and Ski. Barnes read a main avenue here in Durango and I thought I was going to go in having to buy some new boots and they are known as great boot fitters so I walked in but I brought this boot in short him in there like Oh. That's a bummer. So they brought me down to the boot FEDOR and he's like well you know that part is a special order order part and there's some old those are older boots so I have to order. 'em might take a week and I know you don't want to be off the mountain for a week but let me see what I can do. So then he went and dug doug into his drawers of parts of spare parts and he was able to figure out how to fix the thing he's able to put together a bunch of different pieces and get it bolted back together and I said wow thank you so much I thought it was gonNA have to spend eight or nine hundred bucks a couple hours. Get some new boots and here. I am walking out five. Maybe ten minutes later completely fix oh by the way he said. I'll order you the right part. So we won't have to Frankenstein. Your boot together and we'll get that new part in a week and we'll get you all all fixed up and it was just amazing. Amazing so why. Am I telling you this because look what I'm doing I am telling you about this. I'm telling you to go to Ski Barn into Rango to get all your ski here. I'm going to be buying skis. This year new skis. I need some new all mountain skis. I've brought my skis and I'm GONNA Goski Bar. They're gonNA get thousands of dollars of business from me in the coming months and years because he took five or ten minutes. Look through spare parts and used to skill and fixed my boot instead of trying to sell me another set of boots. So the reason I'm telling you all this is we all have places in our business where we can take care of people and we can get people saying amazing things about our businesses. Yes in my business claimed. We're perfect but I think we do a really good job of taking care of our clients and that's like one of the rules. I don't have that many rules in my business. One of the rules is we always take care. Appeal owners and so I am power my team especially my customer service. Everyone on my team that is is in contact with our clients with our Pilaf owners. They're empowered to take care of our people. They're empowered to make decisions to take care of our people people and I think that's one of the reasons that I've had so much success over such a long time product launch formula been in the market since two thousand and five. There are no other products that are still on the market. Now yes I put a lot of effort into continue updating it. It's a world-class strategy. It gets people's results. All our success is based some people getting great results but in addition to all that we take care of our people we see our owners as an extended family so the question. Russian is where Your Business. Can you take care of your people where those places where for for the for the cost of five or ten minutes and and some spare parts you can over and beyond and surprise and delight your people because it makes a difference. I was riding the lift today with you know. Sometimes you're left with strangers. Here's lit up at a ski area and two different times just today alone. I told people story of this boot.

"frankenstein" Discussed on Full Cast And Crew

"Maybe the greatest payoff gene wilder working himself up into hydrogen Saga Soga. Wow Oh it's funny about that too is no other point in. The movie is Eager Igor Smoking like that's not something that he does it really just pulling going out of cigarette a comedy. It's what makes it so good You mentioned Madeleine Khan and her singing voice which is this is a great scene in between her and also realized watching this that I probably make the mistake that many people do when I was a child certainly made this. If you saw Frankenstein's Stein's monster you would say it's Frankenstein but it's not now. I did that. Why is that the only thing like that? Because it's like Frankenstein should be the name of the thing MHM It should be the name of the creature because that's what it is or. Why isn't the movie called Dr Frankenstein? Yeah they could've cleaned that up. A little is what I'm saying. So let's let's get Mary Shelley on the line. Nineteen years one thousand nine years old when she wrote that. What did you do when you're nineteen saying the a Capella Group? Yes yeah well. Not many of US wrote Frankenstein. We were nineteen Mary Shelley. So good for you. You're a little overachiever. So this is the famous love. I've seen between Melanchon in Peter Boyle as Frankenstein's monster and it's the long pay off for all the don't touch me me stuff. She does with gene wilder and as Jenny pointed out a great use of her beautiful singing voice. Who What are you what what do you want? What do you want to calm down? I'm not afraid of you. How much do you want to let me go? My father is very rich. You can have the entire world at your fingertips. Listen I have to be backed. Hi Eleven thirty. I'm expecting a very important call. Thanks Oh oh oh you can't be serious I'm I oh my God look I'm engaged and once it was never all off. Aw Oh so good. It's so so good. And what's so great about that. Is She asked Mel Brooks if she could sing that. which is obsolete mystery of life instead of what he had proposed which was cheek-to-cheek because was it starts with an awe so she could go right into the song and it's so funny and so brilliant? Wow yeah she's got. I can't wait for our documentary. Yeah I know okay what else. What else do you WanNa talk about in relation to young Frankenstein Gene Hackman gene? Hackman wanted to do do this. Because he wanted to prove that he could do. He wanted to try comedy. Yep Now they say this. I don't know if this is really true. Do you believe this. That audiences didn't didn't recognize him when the movie was released. I kind of do I think maybe in that nineteen seventy four time. That could actually be possible. Because we're not like inundated at that time I'm with everybody all the time. And exactly how they looked last week right and no one thought of him as a comedic actor so Maybe it wasn't in anyone's mind that that's who that could be but any wasn't originally credited when the Fed that's why yeah so i. You gotTa have the clip and I lost it here to find it again but yes it's just what you were saying. He wanted to try comedy and since he played tennis with Gene Wilder Milder. He asked if he could I was kind of depressed to hear that I mean I'm glad for them that they were like physically active. But it's sort of went against my archetype that had out of my mind of gene wilder that he was like an active tennis player. I don't know much you whether you want your gene. I don't know I guess I mean I don't know I just tennis just trampoline at home though just kind of elite you know yeah and he seems like so much of his comedy is so pointedly kind of anti societal conventions. Yeah you know if you think about all the characters that he plays he's always pointing out something about ourselves so it's like the Anti Sport Acapella skateboarding now. I wouldn't really see him as a skateboard. I guess I see him sort of like like sitting around in a sumptuous reading room like in a smoking jacket opening tomes. Yeah that's what I want. That's what I want to think of bringing ringing Gilda some T- you know like playing tennis with Gene Hackman L. A.. And I guess that's probably part of that they all have but you now. It's true semi read about these people meeting for Brunch and Beverly Hills. I'm like Oh you don't want to know that it's funny. I was looking for the blind priests seen seen earlier today and for some reason that scene is such a classic I could find it dubbed into Italian Spanish. All these other languages have of that scene dubbed Soga cigars is good good fire. Five as our friend Yes You see you see you have your cigar. Let me see yeah. Don't inhale until it Wait wait where are you calling how. He's GonNa make a special great lines so good said he ad libbed that yes and the reason that it goes is to black right away. Is that everyone on the set. Crackdown they're like had to just cut right there because it was too funny. Great what a what a debut for anyone give Gene Hackman great comedies. After this he was in the birdcage true. See that's another nineties movie for you. Yeah that's what I'm here for. All right let's talk a little bit about your childhood television. Viewing Habits Jenny the child of the eighties while I was born in Eighty S. Does that count. As long as I was on all grew up in the night. Then you're ten in one thousand nine hundred ninety so your formative television movie years were the ninety s yeah I was in Nineteen ninety-four you're born in nineteen eighty four was okay. You're not a child of the eighties. Jenny your child of the nineties. The child of the ninety S. I know why you don't want to admit that I would not want to admit no. I had a great childhood. I just didn't hear your parents are great job. I'm just saying in terms of a decade decade to be from right. You'd really much rather say you're a child of the eighties and the nineties. Because the nineties is as we've also discussed on the pod the worst decade in the history of the musically culturally. Go T's plaid jackets. You weren't into like there's really nothing good in I. I mean there's nineties he went into that really was then. I think we all regret that. Sh- you guys parody garrity in your musical career so so it's not like you don't see it for what it is Joe. I'm Chad I'm blake and we're from the band. Simon Never said we've toured with groups like Hootie and the blowfish gin blossoms in dish Walla. We've sold millions of CDs and tapes.

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

The History of Tiki Time

"Aw I mean you could be a little bit more cynical and say that don didn't just create this decor out of love it was also to cash in on on something that was very much in the cultural the other thing was that America's well as Europe was in the grips of the great depression everybody's bummed out and they have a little mini vacation in this beautifully appointed fo- Polynesian atmosphere with these amazing exotic cocktails so that's the story signed on the beachcombers atmosphere but what about those cocktails they didn't call it Tiki back then he called them rum rhapsodies there's a little bit pretentiously put an ancient rum in the French style just to make it more classy but here's my question rum is a Caribbean spirit right why not serve Polynesian rhapsodies instead the problem was there's no such thing as a polynesian cocktail I mean he had polynesian decor but what do you serve in the glass in the new Hebrides they did have a polynesian drank native ponies and drink called Kava what they would do they would sit in a circle around a big wooden ball and chew the psychoactive roots of the Kava plant gave you sort of a nice melody sociable high where they chew it spit it into a ball and they'd mix it with coconut milk and then they pass around you and you drank from it this was not the sort of thing that would go over very well in Hollywood and thirty four so no psychoactive saliva base drinks for done but he had another idea he'd also traveled to the Caribbean in those round the world adventures that he'd spent all his college funds John and that's where he had discovered the planners punch in Jamaica and the the dockery and Cuba the Queen's Park swizzle in Trinidad these are all based on rum so don new and he knew rum drinks but rum also had a practical advantage it was the closest spirit available to import Cuba's close by and willing to supply thirsty Americans it accuses right after prohibition and so rob was only spirit that had been readily available in the US while that distillers your non in operation and the term running Shannon must've runs the bar at the Caribbean themed Gladis in Brooklyn and she recently wrote a cocktail book called Tiki earn tropical cocktails and Shannon says that Rome was actually the cheapest to for bar operator costs was really important especially as you're talking about being in the Great Depression so ram fit the bill was expensive in costume much contracts at the whisky which is really expensive because there wasn't the really wasn't any left in this let me take a few years make more whiskey and agent the dawn has rum and he knows some of the basic Caribbean rum drinks but he doesn't just serve those Caribbean drinks he reinvent it's them and it was an entirely new way to serve and mix cocktail he basically took the three hundred year old planters punch poem I'm one of sour to sweet three of strong four of week sour being citrus sweeping sugar strong being rum and week being water ice and he squared or cubed he was like okay I could use lime juice as my sour but what if I mix lime and grapefruit in the same drink and how about instead of just Grizz my sweet what if I mix honey and maple syrup together or infused my sugar Syrup with some spices or pomegranate syrup so he dimensional is D- those two elements and also so what was really radical and brown breaking was that he did the same thing with the strong instead of just one rum he would say okay planners punch generally has dark Jamaican Punch one minute what if I added to that in the same glass a white Puerto Rican or Cuban room which has a more floral dryer kind of file the two rum's enhancing inform each other the Puerto Rican rum cuts the heavy molasses sweetness and density of the Jamaican and the Jamaican adds flavor and depth to the light dry Puerto Rican so anyway this was revolutionary nobody'd ever had drinks like this for nobody's ever made drinks like before that basic idea take a plant as punch and Cuban that's the recipe for what became Don's most famous drink the drink put him on the map the Zombie Don Lake to tell a tale of how he invented the Zombie a businessman came in and was so hung over and he had a sales meeting on made him a couple of these and he walked in like Zombie and nailed it but there's no way as perfect as this cocktail is that donges whipped up behind the bar in two seconds there was a lot of you know coaxing in finessing with these rooms and the dawn's makes in the Porno and the bidders but yet that's the legend that don created for it but yeah it was strong it was popular and there was a limit of two in the bar you can have more than two but even with the limit that didn't up the crowds from storming as place they were lines out the door it was a real see and be seen everyone that went into don the beachcomber was a WHO's who of Hollywood Howard Hughes in Grant Joan Crawford Clark Gable Don's little bar was a huge success so almost immediately there were copycats people started putting up their own version of a Polynesian Paradise all over la remember Americans were already obsessed with the South Seas but the whole vibe struck a particular chord in California first of all Californians of course really embrace surfing in this period which is a Hawaiian Sport and you know there's also a kind of a belief in a sort of shared attitude and aesthetic sensibility right so Californians very much the themselves as you know more modern and more relaxed than the rest of the United States are certainly more so than the kind of Stodgy East Coast Sara Miller Davenport is a historian at the University of Sheffield and she just wrote a book called a Gateway State Hawaii and the cultural transformation of American Empire Californians just vibe at aloha spirit so within a couple of years they were copycat bars all across the state most of them are just knockoffs and nothing to write home about but Jeff Ameri told us one of those copycat bars was really the equal of done the beachcombers the only restaurant tour who went Tiki or went four Polynesian in the nineteen thirties who could rival Don's palette and his skill was a guy named Victor Berge on He was the French Canadian son of a waiter in Oakland and he was in San Francisco he had his own little place there called Hinky Dink's was famous for a Frankenstein you get frank and a Stein for ten cents and he thinks was basically just a little barbecue shack with a Alaskan I rapper theme you know snow shoes and taxidermy on the walls in nineteen thirty seven he took a vacation to Hollywood and discovered on the beachcombers and like everybody else he he waited on line for ninety minutes to get into the bar he saw the popularity of what was happening at Don the beachcomber and try to recreate that up in his place and he turns and hangings into Trey Vicks and he turned himself from Victor Berge Ron into trader Vic Bergeron chair Vic as he was now known he was super savvy any seems to have had a great pallet everyone else was just copying done but trader vic actually used new spirits and juices and invented his own drinks and the food in his restaurants was revolutionary for mid-century. US I mean he introduced on elements of east Indian Malaysian Jap in these and other cuisines on his menu which was unheard of at the time like Donna beachcombers and all these other taking place just serve basic cantonese Chinese food is cheap the Chinese cook and then that would be that but vic pioneered what he called international cuisine and it he did it very very well to the point where he had white tableclo- fine dining restaurants multicourse meals of his own invention vic was also something of a showman he had a wooden leg from from his childhood illness but he would invite people to stick a fork in it and then he would tell them that he lost it to a shark on the high-seas but don the beachcomber and trader vic or soon franchising around the country you WanNa Polynesian themed night out on the Down in Chicago complete with dancing ladies and tropical drinks and an expensive dinner you got it that could've gotten old but then World War Two happens and things get even worse and more and more people flocked picky bars and then Gi's come back from the actual South Pacific with a renewed interest and all that and in the nineteen fifties everything combines you have a booming postwar many facturing economy you have all these vets coming back writing and making movies about their experiences and Tiki just goes into overdrive and it's perfectly suited for the Eisenhower era suburban culture as well which is kind of stifling and moralistic but you can make a little escape into the Pagan South seas in your local Tiki Bar International level was still a little too expensive for regular people in the nineteen fifties but increasingly a middle class couple could treat themselves to a nice night out and get away from it all that way the musical South Pacific came out in nineteen forty nine does this mean I finally finally get to play a little bit of something that booth you Nikki and my partner Tim like to make fun of me about what might deep and abiding love of musical theatre dear God there's no stopping you is there nope Pacific here we come some and Charlie the you may see a stranger thanks for indulging me going to let you make a habit of it okay see anyway the point is Tiki just kept getting more and more popular things continue to grow a pace in the nineteen sixties when you see really the height of Fo- Polynesian Restaurant Chic nece sort of Tiki chic but these were not low end beach bars or Jimmy Buffet Style replaces most of them like trader Vic's on the beachcomber and Stephen Crane's kon-tiki chain were high end luxury restaurants and they were event dining in people would save up and go out on a Friday night in their best clothes to these places even Disney got in on the tiki craze with its very own enchanted tiki room it opened in eighteen sixty three and drilled it soundtrack into the brains of America and even in the nineteen sixties international travel was still expensive and so Sarah says are white middle class Americans these tiki bars and restaurants allowed them to feel cosmopolitan going to Tiki bars right becomes in order these Polynesian restaurants becomes a way to sort of from any white people right to express your kind of embrace of foreign cultures in this moment and speaking of embrace Tiki bars and this whole American love affair with Bo Polynesian everything by the nineteen sixties it's not just about being open minded did it's about being sexy which is a period where more broadly a loosening of some of these sexual norms and I think there's something very appealing to women or at least in the way that these various cookbooks and magazines portray it for women kind of cross these racial boundaries right to kind of play act as a kind of Polynesian princess white middle class women went to Tiki bars and held back yard luos and dressed in moves and eight that FO- Polynesian Pan Asian cuisine the way it's described as often as a way of the Luau is a chance to kind of loosen up it's a chance to play act as as a Polynesian woman right and of course the stereotype of Polynesian women is there you know much more overtly sexual than white

"Going on the president came out and is in favor of the red flag laws in which a police officer or a family member in the house can go to the police and they will take away a gun from the person who is in red flag and then the other issue is expanded background checks and what you're not going to be hearing is the ban on assault weapons that is not gonna be in the conversation the limiting the number of magazines or the capacity of a magazine your I can hear much about that but you know we're but for those of us that are in favor of gun control you know where I see it now had so many conversations screaming conversations with people which I love to do that's what I do for a living but there is something else that you've been hearing and a word that out or couple words that have come up time and time again and that is lone wolf in already how we've been hearing that domestic terrorism is actually a greater threat then foreign terrorism all tied up Islam is crazy are fundamentalist Islamists it's the master terrorism and it's not domestic terrorism based on Islamic philosophy as you have we as we have seen in the past where you have young men the radicalized in terms of it Islam now this is a whole different animal this is domestic terrorism based on Julie white supremacy and there is a history of this our country is rife with white supremacy and I'm gonna talk about that in a minute but what I wanna do is re visit the lone wolf issue there is no such thing as a lone wolf maybe the actual shooting but if you look at the vast majority of these lone wolves who ought other than the Islamic terrorists a radicalized a young man they all follow the same path anti immigrant anti semitic anti minority white supremacists who believe that America should primarily be white and we don't want to are those people according to them that are a different color a different philosophy different ill cut want to live in the United States we just don't want those folks and does certainly the president's smacks of that he if he is not a firm believer in that he is certainly on the edges in his statements and is being called an out and out racist I don't know if I would go that far but I would certainly say he encourages it in his language about Mexican is language about Muslims are his language about immigrants I mean that certainly smells like someone who wants to keep America white and pure now again I am not accusing him of being there but I certainly am accusing him of creating a climate of their X. fostering this philosophy and there's no question in my mind the white supremacists have gone crazy I mean the incidence of white supremacy on the internet has exploded over the last few years since our president trump declared his candidacy and so all right V. el Paso incident particularly through attention to this problem of long will shooters and should they be viewed as isolated act worse sick people in the words of White House said chief of staff Mick Mulvaney are more as saw I think is a legitimate view part of a much larger ideologically driven movement hi Daniel grant who wrote the book the guard gate history of anti immigrant bigotry United States said these are not single shooters these are a mob that with high pyre powered rifles people feel they're part of something bigger and they don't get together in the street with porches like Frankenstein right you have all the torches in the pitch forks of your marching up to the castle you know there are Bob is the internet that's where they congregate and to the internet as I've said this is far more dangerous and for easier for these people to get together and they do they share philosophy they share hatred they talk about weapon read they're the ones that advocate keeping America your they're scared to death of immigration why because it interferes with their idea of America they believe that their jobs are being taken over by immigrants they believe that our country is moving away from its history effectively white Protestant our in anti immigrant which I'm gonna share with you in a moment the history of bigotry in this country that goes way way back and so there is the lone wolf wolf already part of the mob and all they do this is the guy who has the torch in front of the mob who actually ignites the building on fire so they are part of this group of people this community and they really feel there are there and they're doing something bigger than themselves I have talked to many service members who believe in this is something that's taught in the military and this is why you have are people who so many people feel this way the marines say this all the time you become a you become something bigger than just yourself you are moving towards an idea this is why you are here the idea of democracy the idea of freedom well there that is exactly the same feeling with that they have except their idea of freedom is no immigrants no Jews no Muslims no Catholics from any of them certainly no Mexican specifically although them go toward central Americans particularly yet it's still Mexicans they haven't quite moved over in that regard all right so are coming back let's talk a little bit about said the bigotry the United States we are a country that has done a superb job of being a nation of bigots and the history I've gotten better damn right we've gotten better much better but it's it's a horrible chapter horrible chapters in the history of this country and I want to connect

China's two CRISPR babies might have shorter life expectancies

"Is i'm looking at this christopher baby story so crisper would you look at d._n._a. they're able to splice d._n._a. and take out genes that may not be beneficial for the baby And researchers in the US are warning. What will whoa. These gene edited babies. May die young. now six months the world's first edited babies reported china and researchers are saying that the twin girls yeah they may be more resistant to h._i._v. they have significantly increased tally geneticist was he's young clean dubbed the chinese frankenstein they said and in november two thousand eighteen announced he was create that he had created the first gene editing babies team editor jean are five from two twin babies a third gene editing is supposed to be born this summer Now going back to the twins. He wanted to make them immune from. HIV. but we're being told that people with the various of genome that he and his team gave the children are now twenty one percent are younger according to researchers from u._s. berkeley u._c. berkeley heavy search you a vast repository of human subject d._n._a. from two thousand people the berkeley scientists found that cece are five somewhat of a double edged sword while it might grant the children heightened immunity today chevy virus leaves a more susceptible to dangerous strings of flu and west nile virus so what we found is that -nificant increased mortality lead researcher restless until then p._r. breaking the unfortunate news at the twin girls are now twenty one percent less likely to live the seventy six as a result of the crisper editing they were subjected to so of course the scientific community has been ticked ever since dr he que- Broke the news. in addition this of course the data heat dodger he himself present last year they said he didn't manage the editor specific gene as intended further emphasizing the risk inherent of plane god what their own d._n._a. and they say the changes could last for generations highlighting dramatic consequences of failure and the extremely tight margin for error so we've been talking about crisper technology and had to take out a gene i kind of like a typewriter in a way guess displace it out we've talked about that for years now not years for months and how on one end if you have child that is going to have a deadly gene atas because his parents made that jane have that gene was able to get pregnant had offspring live long we all want our babies to live long and so we'll do anything possible to help them live long if it's something as simple as removing a gene lot of people are for it some people aren't they said no no no you're messing with nature darwinian survival of the fittest if parents gave birth to a child that's not supposed to live long that child if they reproduce will then have children that won't live long that's not ever lotion airily advantageous let nature tickets course some people will say And then an argument. Other researchers say as well. God or nature gave us the ability to do this technology. So we aren't vested with. Because God inspired us or nature inspired us to be able to do this. So there's gonna be a back and forth on the ethics of this and. theory if you have a child that would be destined to live that long you fix the gene that child would then hopefully not transmit that gene to their progeny then we have the ethical question is of our we've manipulating and making a new generation an area generation right are we going to be trying to make populations of people that are perfect are we going to try to make them blonde are we going to try to make all skinny or all tall and just because we have the knowledge to do it do we i've told you guys mandates book god lakes man works god laughs i've been god's in charge i think we're going to punish them out i think something's going to bite us in the butt but i'm a scientist also went to medical school i did research scientist when you're a scientist you don't wanna stop progress i'm so grateful we have antibodies and that by the nineteen forties we could fight so many infections our soldiers faced but we must now we have superbugs now we have side effects antibiotics now we have other issues i'd rather take those other issues i would never go back and uninventive antibody but we did mess with nature in that process birth control we came up with a way to not get pregnant we have sex What a breakthrough. Populations loved it. They're like this fantastic. We will we can stop getting pregnant. well we're just hurting ourselves because we're not having a lot of babies So. you know how much do we do a lot of us were thinking of you know what we're living for the day you don't know how much longer you're going to live you know if you only want to babies and you wanna give those two babies college education you know give them all the resources you can without having a family of eight mom wants to work and have a radio career and also be adopter doctor and journalism and do marketing do all the things that i like to do what are we stop at two kids that was my thing have i ever regretted have i ever thought that i might not be doing right oh yeah i struggled that all the time i stopped at two babies and i didn't start having kids till i was twenty eight i have been having babies ever since i was sixteen maybe even younger god gave me a reproductive system that work thank god give me a gift i didn't use it till i was twenty eight got married at twenty six does i i baby twenty eight I'm glad I'm not I don't have any regrets because of my career but in terms of nature. m. i. populating the world with a whole bunch of new dali's in coreys no only two and i have that stone approx spread my jeans and what am i telling my kids am i telling my kids to go out there so the roads and it's no no no no i'm no sex no sex sex nobody have sex married get your career done go to college don't make any babies yet So. How is that? Now. You all we really don't need any more dollars. Yeah. So maybe that's my contribution to y'all. Not a lot of two. But if you notice a lot of things we do isn't really helping our long-term growth, we cut down trees to build our house. Well, those trees provided shelter. Those trees provided oxygen. Those trees provided an ecosystem for other animals. we're okay with them because we're fine i go to the grocery store food i don't need to eat what's in my tree i could buy sunscreen i can have a cover on my house and awning to protect from the sun But we do these things a little by little, and I'm not trying to make as for you know, I don't green movement. but we need to realize that a lot of the things we do all ready are probably endangering us i just think i think article just popped up on humans are dangerous in their lives of course we are we are data in our existence and we probably aren't going to live much longer in terms of thousands of years we're going to make robots robots are gonna kill us i'm being serious We are trying so hard to make artificial intelligence. That Terminator two movie is not that off base. I'm sorry. Guys. We're making robots. That have artificial intelligence people will never happen. If a robot thinks there's a threat later, what would you to protect yourself? we're already pushing ourselves out of a job market how are we doing darwinian survival of the fittest of the job market we're making robots to replace each other So we're going to keep going because here's a lifetime is going to be fun, all these robots and stuff.

"It can be that'll. In sickles. Lost year. Spain found itself for the shiny, new prime minister, petro, Sancez bitter. Fittest which which has renting. Which has. Clueless and leader of the socialist posse had a winning smile was good at basketball. And at least visually was a welcome change from the rather dour figure of his predecessor Mariana who are. Roy had been the leader of the fifth largest economy in Europe since twenty eleven an old and safe pair of hands his strategy of keeping quiet and carrying on that Bruce Spain back from the brink of economic collapse. But a rather unskillful handling of the Catalan crisis and a slew of corruption charges sore no confidence vote up held last summer and rehoist People's Party was ousted Sanchez and his left wing coalition. Government achieved power. She the the. The Makoto villa in country. Stepping down report you government of Frankenstein coalition and warned of the mismatch interests in Sanchez's cabinet. It wasn't just sour grapes talking to build on his socialist parties rather meagre eighty four seats in three hundred fifty seat parliament Sanchez had to partner with Damon. The pro independence Catalan parties as well as the Basque nationalist party and some others while everyone agreed. It was a good idea to get rid of her. They haven't found much to agree on since see the Anthony. Winter you not interesting good. They as much of those voters imitators telematic committee. Ashton's Eunice owner in Gaza Quintex, less minutes. Breath career. On wednesday. The Spanish parliament voted down Sanchez's 2019 budget them, some bold ideas in it measures included, the combating of child poverty, raising the minimum wage and allocating more money for pensions. But we will never know if these reforms will make life better for spaniels or indeed whether they've been tenable in a country with debt to GDP ratio of ninety eight percent and unemployment of nearly fifteen percent now Sanchez will be forced to call a snap election. Sanchez was hyping the two big Catalonian. Parties would vote in favor of his budget in the fed. An election would usher in a right-wing government, which would be forcefully opposed to Catalan succession. Finding the fire is the high profile trial of the twelve Catalan separatists in Madrid this week and Sanchez's Catalan colleagues are not in a month. Cocoa. At this point cooling snap election appears to be Sanchez's sole option. Fortunately, it will serve to create a quick smokescreen following the disastrous rejection of the budget, the PM could seize upon it as an opportunity to secure a fresh mandate to lead the country. But this is wishful thinking, we're more likely to see a hung parliament an equally monstrous Franken stinian coalition following the new normal. It appears is fragmented pulisic's as lack of consensus and an inability to agree on a joint course of action as well as this to Spain really want to see is the prime minister in the space of one year.

"Yeah. And you can even say, Tim, Burton and Helena, Bonham Carter's just as human beings as their look. My rate Frankenstein in in the bride. Yep. Yeah. Nice buddy. I'm old your next puzzle. What says we mentioned Tim Burton one of the ones that I think the manically likes to go back to of Frankenstein. And that's a Ridley Scott, which you probably have a east one of his movies on your list. With. I there's Bladerunner with humanoids of. I forget what the call and the movie, and, but you know, you've got these of artificial humans, and yeah, just got the whole aspect of playing God and playing with science, and how far you know, does that go. And then also I mean, the whole the whole alien series is started to turn into that whole aspect is. Well, it doesn't necessarily start out that way. But that's definitely the way that it has gone in the last couple of films, and you know, I I had alien covenant on my list. Yeah. Because it is the story of creator, and and their creation going against them and them for Sekine their creation and the other way around right? Yeah. I mean, yes, totally influenced by that that kind of Frankenstein story, right? Yeah. So I mean, and so definitely like I said several several directors influence in different ways. So Ridley Scott is one of those in. One of the things that I thought was interesting because again, when I was thinking about may, I thought about the movie Morgan which just came out a couple years ago, we that was Luke Scott that directed that movie, which is released godson, HUD, and so of yeah. Which Luke Scott of evidently was second unit director on alien covenant. And that's how I put it together..

"You'll notice there wasn't a lot of comedy in there until young Frankenstein. But before we get into the specifics of this movie I wanted to know Amy's take on the connection between horror and humor. I think one of the things that comedy really shows with horror is they are about the director manipulating the audience there about pacing and suspense about knowing. When to surprise them. Either surprising punchline early surprising, a mustard jumping out of the corner. If you are in audience member, and you buy a ticket to a horror movie, you're saying I wanna get scared. And if you buy a ticket to a comedy, you're saying make me laugh in both cases, you're sort of putting yourself in the director's hands because the two emotions are so similar to how many times have you like freak yourself out. And then started laughing it's both about this intake of breath, and then this release, so what eighty is saying is that essentially horror and comedy, both make us feel something. Whether it's a laugher a scream we are having an undeniable. Physical and emotional reaction. And is not what we go to the movies for anyway. So if horror and comedy are the two most effective ways of having that experience, it kind of makes sense to put them together comedy. You know, the problem is that you really have to be scared really have to be scared that have the release the release of laughter, and that's the tough. That's the toughest thing goes if the audience knows coming into a comedy, it's going to be very hard to scare them. We actually kind of this election about how horror in fear in comedy work, even at the beginning of young Frankenstein. When the doctor is giving election to his class, and he's talking about voluntary in involuntary reflexes will serve I'm not sure I understand the distinction between reflexive involuntary nerve impulses. Very good since her lab work today is a demonstration of just that distinction. Why don't we proceed? I mean laughter. Screaming is the ultimate involuntary reflex? That he's just priming. You. This is what you're going to have happened to you for. The rest of this movie. But is that the same thing as dark comedy? What's the difference? There's a real difference between horror comedy and dark comedy like horror comedy is maybe making light of something that should scare you like a where we'll jumped out and he had braces on or something, but dark comedy is when you're laughing at something because it makes you uncomfortable because it is so true to what the truth is of life that you can't laugh it'd be like if that world jumped out, and he was like, I'm gonna take away all your healthcare. You're like oh God to real Amy to real. Mel was no stranger to dark comedy either. And he knew how to use it. The best example was the producers would Hitler yada, make him ridiculous. And silly you couldn't give them any credence any reality. You gotta make him foolish. He was a great oritur. And if you give them a soapbox with him, you're gonna lose. But if you let them go a little further SCR. Dreaming and spit coming out of his mouth, you know, you can win by making him funny. So comedy brings anybody down if you know how to do it. But even if we're specifically talking about horror comedy there are a ton of varieties. Yeah. This mesh up between horror and comedy. It takes many different forms Mellberg's with young Frankenstein is kind of doing this sort of borscht belt lampoon of things scream, for example is super meta commentary. It's commenting on the Jonah itself. Then you have something like today, you have a movie like get out in that's very different type of humor goes straight into like bleak dark comedy because we're laughing at ourselves you're on edge for reasons that have nothing to do with the horror itself. It's about the horror. What's happening in America? I asked her to give us an example from young Frankenstein. What's a moment that is one hundred percent horror comedy..

"Frankenstein. Yeah. And then the go into this, like old male or something because there's women and Dr Frankenstein chases them in there. It's just the two of them and the door gets locked. And then Frank Zayn, like beats the hell out of throws him off the balcony and he hits the windmill and then falls to the ground and bring this doctor back to town or whatever anything he's dead, and then the burned Frankenstein alive in this wind mill in, he's just running around screaming and shrieking. It's the most. It's a horrible. He's just like, it's just like a guy like. It's it's like a four minute seed of just like. Fight a fire getting burned, burned to death, so they burn him to death, man. At the end, you see the Dr Frankenstein. He's recovering, but they couldn't get the actor back the actor win. He left Hollywood or something with like, and they're like, oh, we had to end it not with ambiguous, whether or not the doctor died. So he's out of focus in the corner in a bed when his dad, the barren, this Astle who was really mad mean to the Bergomi's for for some reason, there's all these. Servants there, and he drinks wine in front of them, but he doesn't give them any a- and he's like my son, let's enjoy this wine. Well, you guys wouldn't appreciate it of drink it and it's just him drinking wine. And then the movie ends. Is he's cheers as son grade a monster that killed a little girl. I think what this was this is probably like this is like depression era. Maybe this is like trying to get people to turn against the rich. Yeah, maybe. I mean, that's like a big. It's not dwelled upon in the book. Well, told upon, I think because like Mary Shelley was like idle rich. But a but a we? Yeah, she was. She was like, I think eighteen, but like that's more than I ever did. Oh, yeah. But she was still like, you know, had a life of leisure in front of her buy shoes, very rich, right. So I think she wrote a character that she could like identify with but didn't realize like, oh, it's just like a real asshole. Like just always have nervous fits and like you have a job. He just like tinkers around with like old shitty from the slaughterhouse. All. It feels like he's like, don't bother me. I'm doing my experiment. I mean to do what I want. Do you know who my daddy is? Yeah, this is the kind of kid that's, you know, burn an answer with a magnifying glass few years before now. He's like, I'm gonna make life. Yeah, they're all real jerks. And like Mary Shelley was criticized. Mary Shelley was criticized for something. I knows in the book which is the captain Victor Frankenstein and the monster Frankenstein all speak the same way. It's very confusing to read. Give this Frankenstein sore tick, Hewlett. He reads, paradise lost while he's out in the woods. Yeah. And he relayed to Satan, does he? Yeah, he's like at Satan, bad guy. Yeah. He's like he did what he had to. I'll do what I have to think Satan to name cell. This whole thing is just like, man, if I could just get laid. These fires, Dr. Frankenstein, just needed to tell just need to either keep his promise of Frankenstein or kill Frankenstein. He always talks about how he's like, oh, Frankenstein comes. I'm gonna beat the hell out of them. You're not Frankenstein's eight feet tall, and you've never even fought him and everybody Frankenstein's fought. I mean, granted there either like women or you know, like a sixteen year old sickly boy, he's very easily strangled to death. Well. I think both the monster and the man Frankenstein. Couple of jerks. I would argue Dr Frankenstein the real monster. Few.

"Yeah, yes. Frankenstein's very strong leaves and he's just roaming the countryside and then Dr Frankenstein. It's like, all right, let's get married now. Well, problems are. So, yeah. Doc, your friend got killed. He thinks the monster stead at the doctor's gonna somewhat evidence because he was like, hey, Dr you'll just kill this monster. And then you'll come to my wedding in a couple of hours and the okay, cool. Like we'll start the wedding real quick and then you. The monster kills the other doctor and then he's roaming around, but they're, they're like, oh, it's time to get married, but the the defense, the bride, I guess this point. She she, she's not his sister by the way or is. I think she's just a lady was even attracted to her on. No, not explained. She's like, oh, something's wrong. I think these monsters loosen. She has no idea. She's what is she now she's Tele path. He's like, all right. We'll wait for the doctor to come here and then we'll get married. Then he'll tell you for him to come here with the monster severed head. He's the monster, looks scary to. He's got a flat top head. In Bolton. So anyway, the monsters roam the countryside any. Then you see this farmer guy and a little girl and he's a little girls like, won't you play with me daddy? And he's like, that's enough playing for today. I have to go to town for something and so like he's rain, seven-year-old girl or something, and he's like, all right. And she's like, oh, like it's a, it's a very loving father, daughter thing. He's like, all see you later. When I come back and then he kisses her on the mouth, which is a real father, daughter, thick, whatever. But it's like those are two actor. Like, hey, I got the role kiss a seven year old girl on the mouth. Yeah, somebody stranger. Yeah. So anyway, she's says, she's playing by yourself. She's throwing flowers in the lake. I like to do that and watching the float and Frankenstein. The monster comes up and she gets it, get this. She's nine me scared of him. She's a, she's a pure heart and she gives him some flowers and they're thrown a man, and he watches them float and they're going back and forth. He runs flowers. So he picks up the little girl, throws her in the league thinking she's gonna float. She drowns this whole thing. They had to cut that part out like. Nineteen eighty eight. But there's this whole thing about how they had to do like a hundred takes or like many takes before they got the one they needed in this little girl couldn't swim. And the take that they used. You can't even see their like they finally got the perfect tape. That is, that is a classic. Yeah, like Frankenstein's blocking her, I don't understand, but the director promised her any snack she wanted. If she would do more takes of drowning. Preface it with. Let me be clear. These are nineteen thirty snacks. I think she was well aware of that kids. What she wanted was twelve hard boiled eggs. Favorite snack. Discussing all. Gave her two dozen. Eggs because she did such a good job. So anyway, the is a strange man on the mouth and drown a bunch of times. Doesn't hard. Boiled eggs were hers, so the towns is so the Frankensteins are really rich family, right? So the Barron comes out and he's like, Hello, peasants. I'm gonna give you beer in. They're all cheering for beards, and we're celebrating my son's wedding. And just as they're all celebrating and everything, there's there's dancing in the streets and stuff. The farmer guy is carrying the corpse of his daughter. He's on a mood to celebrate. Yeah, and he's like, there's been a murder and I forget who they think it is. I don't know whatever. Then Frankenstein comes and tries to murder. The monster tries to come in murder, the doctor and his wife. Yeah, whereas fiancee's the bride, but he gets away and then everybody figures out, oh, this monster probably killed a little girl, and then all the towns people go after them with torches because he's afraid of fire. And then one thing is they bring these dogs with them. Last ten minutes was movie is nothing but dogs, hell leagues. We get it their dogs. There can we put the dogs a little quieter in the mixed..

And then he searched fighting the guy. There's a lot of scuffling and stuff and then and then he makes them all sit down and then it rises the body rises to the top. Holy get struck by lightning. And then Dr. Frank Zion says, it's alive. You remember that. Nobody knows this movie. Everybody says he's. That they don't know the warning at the beginning. He says, now now I know what it feels like to be God. Oh, wow. Fine point on it. Yeah, they had to cut that out for like fifty years. Restored election nineteen eighty like American society is ready for that line. There's this guy from burgomaster. See in the book the burger master? No, I thought it was burger Bashar like this movie's to get good. The burgomaster the mayor or something comes by Frankenstein's. Dad is this rich guy, Barron. In the Bergen, nobody even knows what the hell fring and signs up to. Oh yeah. The Burgum master comes to Frankenstein's dad, and he's like, hey, wins your son getting married.

If you're marrying your child to an adopted child. Yeah, he got a pay yourself goats and stuff. I think that's probably why they were doing it. They were like, well, we'll adopt the kid, but we're not gonna pay some other sucker's. Have him wills, have her Mary, our son, and it'll be fine because they're not actually brother and sister. They're just first cousins into seventy nine hundred. Nobody's seventeen hundred. It's fine. So they like grew up together as brother and sister and they and they really get along. They Elizabeth, is she in the movie? Yeah, I think so. I don't think she's cousin, who's they rich? Is the debts, Aaron is he's not named baron out think, but he is a barren, basically, this whole, maybe maybe I misunderstood. This whole frigate book is about a spoiled rich brat.

Well, so to be clear, we should say, well, it's Frankenstein very see. Frankenstein. That for the sake of clarity will be calling the doctor who created Frankenstein Frankenstein, and we'll be calling the monster. He created Frankenstein. Just for the sake of clarity. So will you did you read the book Frankenstein, Frankenstein by Harry show? Is. Mary Shelley. Yes. I was her married name. I watched the movie Frankenstein from nineteen thirty one. 'cause I didn't wanna read a book. Yeah. And Tom you're like nineteen thirty one. Yeah, that's when the movie came out a hundred damn years ago. Yeah, and well. Yeah, really I mean eighty seven years ago. I guess close very close, but. It's it's very different and you're just like a, I'm going to read the book in your book report and like I'll watch the movie and that'll be a good counterpoint. And then you're like at your like you should watch the one that came out recently? I Frankenstein. No, maybe is the one where like deniro plays the monster. Is that one? Yeah. Think Coppola made it. Yeah, I think it's called Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, right from the nineties I Frankenstein, which I looked up with Aaron Eckhart. Is like a sequel to Franken sign kind of. And it's actually from what I read. I mean, it seems like it was a pretty bad book, but it was like a fairly now. I guess it introduce a bunch of like magic and stuff you probably. No, I like magic. What do you like to be clear magic, but I don't like magic. You like magic trick. Downed like magic, who's your favorite magician lent, Lance Burton? No, it's up lands Burton. It's. No, the Pendragon smell. It's Valentino. That's the he. He's her coat broke Likud. He broke the magician's code week after week. That's why like about me. Let me in. He made it accessible for everybody. But yeah, I Frankenstein actually seemed like it was fairly accurate like to wear it left where picked up from the story? Well tell you you named east movies that I should watch and as I'm gonna watch the original nineteen thirty one Frankenstein because guess what? What it seventy minutes lung? Oh, wow. Yeah. Yeah. That's the ideal length of a movie actually loaded in parts. That's back when like making a movie in a longer was a fire hazard because of the silver. That much too much film. Where are you trying to set the whole damn town on fire? Yeah. And then. You know, the townspeople were trying to set the whole damn town on fire, but we'll. Yeah. Yeah, that didn't happen in the book. Tom, I feel like the book is way different from the movie that we all know in the books way, I think so I haven't seen the thirties movies. We start with the books. I tell you about the book, the book worked shore. So the book starts with this guy. What's his name? He's Franken's now. I think his name's captain Walton, but I call him captain no friends as he didn't have any friends, friends. Guess what? I bet he'd be like my books are my friends now think even read right.
