"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer. Even growing up as a for NYKANEN.
Jonathan Pryce, 'The Two Popes'
"There's a movie now that you can see a Netflix. It's called the two popes and it stars my guest today. Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Living Hopkins. Playing guess what the title characters doing doing it brilliantly. So Jonathan Welcome Creek Pope Francis there. You are the big news now. About Pope Francis is his encounter with this woman in the crap out there where he sort of slapped her hand. Yeah Yeah have you been being asked this question now would I please slap really. Okay do I WANNA be grant. At the Golden Globes. There was a lot of Grabbing and pushing polling I was tempted to slap but I feel really sorry for him because people aren't seeing the whole whole sequence video where that particular woman grabbed him very yanked him yanked him and he's He's an Obama scientists bound to hurt. Well let's talk about the two popes in terms of the whole concept of you being offered this to play the The Argentinian Paul. Because we don't see him in the movie being the pope really walk up to that while Anthony Hopkins is playing Pope Benedict German. is you're an Argentinian to Welshman playing these. Yeah somebody must've said. That's that's what we need is to Welshman to do this time for Welsh. Pope was watching and watching. You play this. I kept thinking this other. Argentinian you play. which was one there? You are the dictator in a way. Pope can be a dictator but Pope Francis Go. You is the liberal reform. The one that wants to give them more compassionate look at the church. Did you have any trepidation about pilots. Just just just the usual about whether I wanted to do any of. Is that how you approach them. All Walk Negative. Say No no I thought uh I thought I'd be on a hiding to nothing representing this particular pope. But that didn't last very long. I read the script and won ten. You that Fernando Morella Morella was gonNA be directing it. I definitely wanted to do it and I think it was mainly to do with the fact that I'm not religious logistics. I was brought up in the Christian faith. I went to church until I was a teenager. but I found that this pope was the first pope who I thought was speaking to me and millions like me about issues that what. Mrs Narrowly to do the Church or organized religion but to do with politics and to do with speaking out up folding environment and about the economy about the injustice is the during the world so I he was someone for great empathy towards towards and help. That looked like him a bit and I walk like came definitely Even though you've got ten years on me you could sneak into the the Vatican may be busy and just an take over there and do what you would need to do there. Does that give you a feeling when your plane that that this was what I would do if I win. The pope shoes. I wouldn't be so presumptious to fix that but I'm glad he's doing what he's doing And obviously he's got. There's the whole church and Vatican side of things which he doesn't seem to be able to deal with those conquer but when you're constantly reading lots of stories about how he's disliked within the Vatican because he's a reformer and people don't want that change and I think that's that's why he became pope. He was be made pope in order to make these changes. Otherwise so why choose him because he was in the never been an odd uh-huh latin-american Pope and the film implies of that we don't necessarily know the truth. That benedict wanted Bagogwe uglier to be the next pope because he saw in him things that he could not even he couldn't do he saw in many ways his opposite didn't they and this is it. I didn't mention this in the introduction but benedict was a pope who retired. WHO said I'm not going to do it anymore? And so we have to popes who Are Alive in this world today and they're the clips at the end of the real popes in seeming tab. Having a really terrific time when I sold the first Kata film I was bit disturbed. They were showing the real popes at the end of the phone. Because I thought it would invalidate everything. We've been doing for the previous to house. But what you see in these two men is a is a the committee this just a welcoming the way they they greet each other with great affection and you can see the respect. They have for each other and far from taking away from our performances it they it enhances. It gives an element of truth to what we were doing. It's a really terrific script. Ns Two popes one of these two guys talking to each other which sometimes scares people when they go to the movies. I want that but yet a mirage as a director makes this movie move. You've so beautiful to gorgeous thing to look at. It's also sometimes. Polaris that's going on. Did you all know that that was what was going to happen before he did it. No no what's what's wonderful about. The film is that it It's such a surprise for audiences once don't you don't you. You gotta get them in there and then once they're in that It's a surprise Because it's it's much funnier than I ever expected. And and the audience expect and I think the way we made the film there was no. We didn't have many preconceptions. I don't remember ever talking onto Tony. I'm going to be like this. And he said I'm going to be like this and finance and I want you to do this. That and the whole process was really organic bound because we have the the strength of that script bit underneath his you know holding us up and when I saw it and the way Fernando put it together other because he says his work starts in the editing room he lets us do what we want and encourages us to go certain ways but when I they do what they want to that yeah good directors do that they let you think your your your coming up with the Serving quietly feed and things in your ear they let you think it's your idea So when I saw it I didn't know it was going to be so funny. Rondo humorous. I mean that first scene of your character trying to book his own plane reservations on the fault. Yeah probably apparently did that. That's what he did but it's the post game I saw with a big audience was telluride. And because you I don't know what to expect and that moment the right at the beginning of the phone web the audience laughs as one. The huge wave of laughter. You can feel the audiences sir. I sent me sat by a few. And they're going to enjoy this and the you can feel the audience sitting back and saying this. This is going to be okay you can. It's like Yep okay you know bring it on make happen and yet it also doesn't avoid the controversies that exist within the church. Now the whole thing with the problem priests they're predators that are there and also their histories. Can you talk a little about his history. Go Yeah it back in the seventies in terms of Argentina. It's all mostly. It's all in the film and we didn't shy away from it. The way were applauded and thanked thanked by the people people in Bonus Iris. When they sold the film we had a screening because they that fear was this is going to be a whitewash elma? Crossover Haggi Auger fear Goglia. Because he is still seen as a divisive character in Argentina because of his perceived involvement involvement with the cardinals. I've found on Youtube footage of him being interrogated by or question by his peers fellow cardinals about his involvement with the colonels. And you see a very different man the man you see smiling on the balcony. And he's made pope he's he's he's very doer he's quite angry. I think he's impatient. He's drumming his fingers on the table. And I put that image together with talking to a Jesuit priest and bonus. Who worked with him? I who said they didn't like him. He was Very always stays. Ah Stay by himself. He didn't mix I he was he never smiled. I'm when they saw him on the balcony. This smiling pope. They didn't recognize him because he was smiling. Didn't person yeah. But then you do get the other side of him where he is in the film you see him Saying mass and the kind of the slum township areas and and the other side's members very popular so it's not a a a bio-pic it's not a huggy overview of this man. It's a it's a Watson Study of him and I think we've been fair to him because we all respect him and admire him And we had a screening in Rome three or four weeks ago were members of the Vatican Cambridge theory and They said they liked liked. That enjoyed it And a particular Cardinal WHO's a friend? WHO's a friend of Love Benedict and of Francis He'd liked the phone very much. Fernando the director said. Do you think we were too hard on the church. And he said you went hot enough woo but he also said that he thought France would like the film and he wanted the DVD to take them to show him the film. I love so That review see that. Yeah well what do starts right. Yeah that'd be good and also from France's family in Argentina. Fernando got an email to say that they'd seen it. They enjoyed the film and they liked. What we've done Representing their uncle. That was that was really nice. Colon uncle Uncle Horace to two years. How were you and Anthony Hopkins together? You know. You haven't made anything or done anything before. Really WE'VE BEEN ON A. We're both on the recording of under milk. Wood the Dylan Thomas Poem that was produced by George Martin. Twenty seven years ago the Beatles producer and Tony was first voice. I was second voice and you come twenty seven years later. We're in Rome and the coal sheet has You know you're rated as the importance in the film. The number and I was number one and Tony was number two so it was my revenge after twenty seven audit your greet each other even morning with morning number one number two. It went on from there but we. It's interesting the what happens to the two men in the film is reflected. Did what happened to Tony. And I because you know in the film you see two men sort of sniffing around each other like a pair of dogs like where each other Eh Wary of Tony but I was. I was I I'm an aura of Tony Hopkins. I'm a great admirer of his. So I'm not played late into those early scenes and as you see the pope's relationship growing so my friendship with Tony grew and It is the equivalent of both of us. All of US tangoing together by the end of it. That's a good way to put out.
Introducing One Plus One
"Gotta tell you about a new podcast. They were all really excited about here at wondering it's called one plus one and in one plus one, well, they put you right in the middle of some of the greatest collaborations in history. Think of this is kind of the flip side in a sense. We're talking about people like Sergei Brin Larry page who created massive global companies like Google or think about beyond say and Jay z who live at the top of the pop culture's fear their team or even shack and Kobe one of the biggest sports duos of all time. We're talking about people who reached the very top of their fields. And in some cases, change the way we see the world, it's hosted by Rico Gagliano and faith Sailly. You may. Remember them from public radio? If you happen to have listened to that and Rico and faith chart the intense mysterious alchemy between these visionary minds all along the way, you're going to hear about the ups and the downs of these creative partnerships and something else to you get to learn exactly how they created. Something extraordinary. Just by coming together. You're about to hear a preview of one plus one about two seemingly ordinary dudes from Liverpool who come together and change pop music forever. I bet you know, who were talking about here while you're listening. Go subscribe to one plus one on apple podcasts or wherever you happen to be listening to us right now. You'll also find a link in the episode notes and don't forget to tell your friends about this. Marvelous new podcast one plus one. I mean, you never know maybe one of them will be the plus one to your own. Life's work. It's January nineteen sixty seven in London England, John Lennon is sitting at the piano and his home in the suburbs. Writing a new song? It's based on a newspaper account of a young socialite named Tara Brown killed in a car crash. John comes up with something he thinks will work. The John's having trouble finishing the song. So he heads on over to Paul's house just a few blocks from Abbey Road together. They finished John's verses and round out the tune by adding a fragment from one of Paul's then old number he'd never managed to us. As soon as John? Here's Paul sing that couple of he says. Yeah, that's it. This is how John Paul write music. Quickly intuitively, finishing each other's ideas. Sometimes they have trouble remembering who wrote what that's how closely they work together. But they're not done with this song yet, they wanna make it wilder more Avalon guard. Abbey Road studios, February tenth nineteen sixty seven and the Beatles. The most famous band in the world are throwing a party. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of their so as Marianne faithfull, and Graham Nash. Oh, and a forty piece orchestra dressed in tuxedos, clown, noses and rubber bald caps. The bizarre attire is meant to loosen the buttoned up classically trained musicians. So they'll deliver what Paul wants? We'd like you to do some free form improvisation. The orchestra is confused by the request. They wanna please them after all he's Paul McCartney. But classical musicians don't really do free form improvisation. Producer George Martin steps in. Okay. We don't want complete free form we want each individual musician to climb from lowest no to highest at his own pace the orchestra nods. They try over and over to do what they're asked John dressed in a crushed velvet jacket and sipping wine from teacup watches from the sidelines. He wrote most of the sun, but he's fine. Letting Paul cokes the orchestra into performing what John calls and orgasm of sound. Paul tries to make John's concept come alive, urging musicians to randomly play an ascending scale growing louder until they climax on the same chord on the eighth try. They finally mail it. Everyone knows they've just witnessed something special.
"george martin" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"He said came to him like all at once to the point. And it's such a beautiful song in my opinion to the point where he play he had to play around. He played it for George Martin. He played for all these people like is this already a song, and they were going around for. I think weeks of just like, I swear I either just came to me or it's already something. And they they ran it around. You know, does anybody recognize this like is this already song and once they were satisfied like now, I guess it is in a song. I came up with it. Then then he wrote all the lyrics and stuff. And did yesterday. So kinda reminds me like sometimes stuff comes to you, and your you. You're not really sure where it came from. And in fact, right? That is the holding by which the chiffon lawsuit is is typically cited it is. It was described as sub-conscious plagiarism. And that's true. Right. Like, if you it's harder to think about that in a literary work. But if you had an identical memory and accidentally reproduced large chunks of a, you know, a classic novel that you've read in your childhood because you know, you just remembered it, but you'd forgotten that, you know, you were stealing from somewhere, and it, and it seemed like your own words that would that would be a copyright violation. Read it doesn't matter. Whether you've done it intentionally we're subconsciously. So so that's all. That's all correct. The what I found most interesting was when you played the bit from something kind of for two reasons the first is you just. Playing the baseline. I didn't recognize at all because that was my plan. Yeah. Vocals transform that so much right? And so I sort of go back to the intrinsic test of boy when you strip out the vocals that sounds like a completely different song. And and then I would also add something, you know, it's on Abbey Road. So it's nineteen sixty nine. So maybe Randy California will bring if he prevent here. Yeah. I was actually trying to track that down like because I know there was some weirdness with the Beatles late where they didn't publish. So like, I think he had it written in nineteen sixty eight. So if that were to happen. I'm sure there'd be some interesting fact finding about like, okay, win did George actually write the song and record because they did a bunch of you know, they were in the studio all the time kind of recording stuff for later. Maybe there'd be some earlier version. But but yeah. Yeah. And that and again, remember, those facts are not contested in this kitten. Everybody admits as yes curious spirit is let's upland toward for them. Right. They heard the song. They there was an in copper, right? You know, you prove you have to prove as the plaintiff seeking to prove copyright violation that the defendant had access. To the work. Right. So that's interesting. Okay. So if if hypothetically I live on a remote island somewhere, I've never seen civilization..

"george martin" Discussed on Elite Man Podcast
"You know, a George peop-. You talk about waiting for our Parker. People always waiting for game of thrones, George Martin says a reader lives a thousand lives before he dies the man who never reads lives. Only one reading really does let you live other lives. That's reading journaling. Okay. University of Texas study done by slasher and Penteker says that if you can journal for twenty minutes a day, then they did this with with student together in your romantic relationship after the three month. Mark I was joke. Three months must be a long relationship at the university of Texas or any college campus. Really? But the point is there's been other studies done on people with chronic neuro muscular pain, some research done by the national society, and they found that if those patients can journal for six weeks writing about the positive things in their day that the six month Mark the doctors could reduce their pain medication by up to fifty percent. So reading or writing I it's funny. Like, you know, here we're older people. And we're talking about reading reading like, there's a reason that's the first thing they teach you in school, and sometimes we just need to go back to the basics. Reading and writing can be thought can be there Buick can be productive. And the research says both those things are worth focusing on. I don't know what was wrong with him. Anyway. Sorry. You know, everybody handles things differently as well. And you know, who knows what was going on in his life. But I think there can be you know, sort of that dark side to it or perhaps there was in his life, and, you know, back in the day when we weren't as connected, or maybe it wasn't going out, and you were just kind of, you know, focused entirely on writing. But to to leave that side out the writing the reading side out. I think you're neglecting a lot of things. And you know, I think it's like you said there's a lot of research that goes into it that actually is a lot of health benefits to it. Just in just you people say when I say of talk about reading they say the biggest objections are they say, I don't got time to read. That's the first say research shows that we read more words per day now that we've ever read before history. It's interesting you probably read a book day who whatever whoever's listening just by how many emails text alerts. Notifications blog skims, all that crap added up together is a book. Just take poll twenty minutes from that. You know, what I do I cancelled five magazine subscriptions in Tunis papers of Griffin's spoke some books. Okay. The second objection. I was here is one my supposed to read the big five publishers put over thousand new books day. It's true five hundred thousand a year, plus five hundred thousand more of you self publishing. So you're author it's hard to sift through the pile. What Amazon recommends the same twenty five books we over and over again, I'm like I already read out liars slept telling me to read out liars. Right. So what I do. So I launched podcast I'm trying to uncover the thousand miles former of books in the world for the next fourteen years, although up to September first five fifty two him onto thousand thirty one. 'cause I'm publishing on the lunar calendar, I'm asking three hundred thirty three people. Gimme the three books that changed your life. And that's my strategy for answering those two objections. You do have time just cut away, your your new skin, you know, and all help you find the wants to read 'cause all interview, Chris Anderson of Ted, Judy Blume. Mitch Albom mental. Ask them. So the podcast is called three bucks. That's my one little shell three bucks is my pockets because that's those are Jimmy the two ways that we have to get around. This these two mental hang-ups we have about books you can do it. You just need to make the time and you need to figure out. What's the read? Absolutely. Right. And so last thing before move onto the resiliency aspect, which is what I want to primarily focus on today. What are.
"george martin" Discussed on About Last Night
"Last night podcast with Brad Williams and Adam Ray. And so like do you sit down does have you on the point now where like someone comes to you and says, hey, we want you to write the bay watch movie, or do you think yourself? I'm gonna write a bay watch movie with us. Interesting. Because I wrote when we were doing the state, I wrote a sketch about Baywatch yet that our producer Jim Sharpe once the sketches were got through the pitch phase. At your producer, Jim who's basically functioned to sort of like the George Martin of the the group. He was the, you know, the other, you know, he would like sort of curate stuff and make it make sense. And I remember he handed me, I got back my Baywatch sketch that I had written. I think it said like you can do better. Oh, yeah. I wrote the road. But he was right, not enough. Wasn't good, but they watch. It was interesting, and this is the best advice I could give to any people that want to write studio movies right now these days. They're not necessarily always looking for like a brand new movie that you just thought up in your head. That's amazing. Studios have bought every book that exists. They own the rights to every video game that exists. They have just consumed the rights to everything all the time. Yeah, and they've got to get some of the shit off their books. Right? So a lot of what we do in the movie business these days is we'll go in and be like, what problems do you need fixed? Wow. Yeah. Like we're not gonna come in and pitch you like a brand new idea because you've got so many fires that need to be put out over there. Yeah, you won't even listen to what we're I'm pitching you. Yeah. For instance, that's why Sony kept re-releasing new Spiderman movies because they had to so they don't lose the rights. Yeah. So they lose the right in the last one was amazing, so great. Yeah, but so we went in, for example, we went into the head of Paramount's office and we were meeting about something else completely, but on a three by five card, like moved way down off the wall of things that were coming out on production was upside down, almost in the garbage can was bay watch, and we were like, how do you fuck up a Baywatch movie that was like, so. I've seen it. So maybe they did. I dunno, funny. Yeah, but we're like that that seems doable, like you want to read the bay watch moving like, yeah, of course. We're like it's easy. It's like John Bell, John and swimsuit have the movies in slow motion fucking problem. We just go and we wrote it for a long time. They've got fired and fired Fired off. off everything to do you write it with the like you have casting in your head when you're doing? We did. We did. It helps when you're writing anything? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah, we always, we always cast everything. Just you can hear what they said. Yeah, you know, especially when you're riding with a partner, you have to know everybody's voice. So you heard Lindsay Lohan voice when you wrote Herbie fully like this. This. I find many, I think you're how cash. That is it by the way, please tell me you saw that video. Yeah, refugee family, yes, cellphone redoing it. It's a great idea. Great, Halloween costume. You just need for refugees, right? Yeah. Poor thing. She crushed that movie. She crushed issues in for a long time. Your great met, how is acting with keys? Forget the nose in that. I don't think I have any scenes with him and I'm sorry, but he's great.

"Seventeenth nineteen sixty two. Please call the Cosby coffee club in Liverpool cows Bosnian rock and the and while they were recording for the first time in the studio in August of nineteen sixty two during the first for session together, a Pete best was apparently just not cutting the mustard, and they got their manager to let go of Pete best. But that was right after I think it was even the manager, George Martin who said, drummers gotta go, they are really agree. I heard one story where that was definitely a thing, but apparently they had a problem with his haircut because he had kind of much more of the traditional kind of greasier pompadour haircut. Whereas by this point, the dudes were were rocking that. British mod, mop top that we, we know in love. Well, that became a hallmark of their look. And it just goes to show that even early on in their career. They were very conscious of this image. Yes. And their manager famously told them that if they wanted to be big, it's like, look, you have to do better image wise. You can't because they were just showing up and smoking or eating and drinking onstage wearing whatever they ability in that day and was like, you need to get some proper trousers. There's some great quotes about it, especially because I guess that's back when people said trousers more often. So as crazy, this is George Martin's career before he wrote those awesome game of thrones books. You know, who knew he actually had a story to career as a record producer and manager? Yeah, and he was really just doing the Beatles. I think to support his love of writing and his love of Frappuccino pretty. He's pretty candid about that yet. They so they got rid of Pete best. And that's when Ringo Starr comes. Into the picture. Also Stuart Sutcliffe had earlier left of his own accord to pursue a career in art that had to be a real kick in the pants later for the guy. You know, we you're familiar with a lot of the discography in October nineteen sixty two. Their first single as the Beatles comes out, it's called love me. Do DO enters the British charts reaches number seventeen, pretty good for first time out. Yeah. And this is like their earliest earliest days and sound, which is much more akin to like the Phil spector kind of traditional rock and roll. I mean, really just kind of a lot more straightforward but very catchy melodies that they would continue to incorporate into their future stuff, but it it obviously got a little weirder and cooler in my opinion, thankfully, yeah, because this is a little bit poppy boy, bandy stuff. You know, simple, three chord buddy Holly Esq for lack of a better word in nineteen sixty. Three February eleventh. They record their first album. Please, please me and they do it all in one day in November, nineteen, sixty three. Same year a with the Beatles becomes the first million selling album in Britain, and then they begin their crazy Evelyn, their domination of the world as well as their internal changes, a band in February of nineteen sixty four. They toward the US for the first time, people lose their minds. They're out of their gourds, the barn doors wide open, whatever idiom you want to use their nuts. This is where you see a lot of that archival footage of people just screaming and screeching as the guys get off the plane. Yeah. I mean, as in particular young ladies, they were quite fond of these. These lads from these Liverpudlian labs. Did you know that's the word for it liberal, yeah, there's a weird inexplicable d. the there's one story about how a woman came up behind Ringo and like snipped a lock of his hair. So this was during their. First trip to the United States, believe they did the at Sullivan show and then broke TV reser dumbers blew up..

"I know Jordan's read this series, but this is a seer assay. Fantasy series from the eighties wherein once you begin to read it, you realize almost immediately that it is an extremely direct source for game of thrones right. Like like it has like the cover boasts that George Martin was inspired to write game of thrones in the song of ice and fire series by reading this book and you start reading it, you're like, oh yeah, this is like really, really, really, really similar with like lots of characters that kind of have the same thing going on and and different things about the world building in particular. The similar I would. I would say, I think what generally attributed to it is that it's like a middling not particularly outstanding. I think people believe but very influential work of kind of. Unreliable narrators, shin with a lot of dramatic irony in a fantasy series, which attempts to give more versatility to character perspective right side. It's got a, in this case, it's got a kid and the kid doesn't has no idea what's going on around him. And the world clearly has a whole bunch of eft up things that are happening. But you as the reader can Intuit from reading it sort of what's going on, but the character has no idea and, and that's kind of any continues to engage with events in that respect. So that's kind of what I would give is the general gist of it. It's also similarly considered with post colonialism and kind of kind of like Cold War mentalities about history in the past and sort of rejecting Cold War mentalities. But it's during the past anyway, so well, I'll put a link in the show notes so that other people can be lulled to sleep by this book if they if they want. And second question, what tell me about your bookmark? I got Ivonne a bookmark with a dragon on it because I never had one of them. And I felt like I wanted to go full nerd for this experience. So maybe nerdy geek, whatever. Go have an argument about that in the comments, but it's got a drag on it. It's kind of like combination of Celtic and Nordic kind of ornamentation around it. Right. Are those runes? Are they not? Is it both? I don't know, and it has a ruler on it too, which is great in case, I need to measure anything with my dragon. Dragon long, and it had it had a strand of gold ish, golden twine with a little sort of bell shaped thing at the end which didn't actually ring, but it kind of had a Tassell and a little metal bell. And that was what would catch on things and get pulled out. And so my fiance, of course, who surprises me all the time by carrying about my comfort and happiness in basic ways, which is something that I generally don't care about, but she sure does removed the Tassell from the bookmark after the third time that I complained that it lost my place in the book. But those is a little little like a normally I read books on my nook because I was a Barnes and noble senior bookseller back in a day out of oil t- to that and also because I like the e ink and whatnot, but in the nook is pretty solid. But any rate, the point is that I sat down to read my book and I got about maybe twenty pages in, and then I fell asleep and I slept for two solid hours because I. Exhausted and and I think that this is not something I wanted just call us over as as something that's going on. Because what I woke up when my fiance came home and I woke up, it's like, oh, Wow, I've been asleep for a while in order to kind of get myself back into the groove so that I could do things like work on projects. I wanted to work on this weekend and deal with, you know, finance stuff and workout at the in the garage, gym and stuff. I played like a game of starcraft, right?.

"After season eight from this episode is written by george are martin i wonder what does he seeding here that perhaps we are in seeing quite yet bear out sense kind of conspiratorial but conspiracy is are all the rage on game of thrones at this moment the stories of who knows how many episodes does george martin right of the series is due like one a season i i don't remember where it stops i don't know if he is writing anything in season four i'm gonna i'm gonna really quickly look that up he definitely rights that through three seasons you know he goes that far and then at a certain point he he makes it to season for his final episode is the purple wedding is joffery he's down the line and the rose and then no more because he's too devoted to or quote unquote devoted to working on the next book in the series which has yet to see the light of day as if this as of this recording at the end of october 2017 yeah so what are the other episodes that he ends up writing he's written the point he and he is a writer of one of arguably the best episodes of the series black water in season to he also writes the bear and the made in fair in season 3 which is another great episode featuring end stepping into the bear pit immediately regret this decision and then season for his the lion in the roses his final episodes of four episodes of game of thrones i really do think the quality of game of thrones when george martin is actively involved in the writing staff of this show you could really look like i give season to some knocks and i'm going to be interested to see if that holds up when we go back and read watch these into in a little bit but like when i ranked the season season to is typically really really low for me but the first season the third season the foreign season are decisively just like.

"Like if he's now admitting i don't even watch it anymore need somebody somebody's in a fussy made someone in the in the tow he's he's a little salty because they took the name of the next book put it on the end of last season as the episode in the the extent of the flawed and how much of it albert has been informed by more than i don't know but i think i i would have thought it was going to be george martin because they're telling historic without him but i'm with you i think it's actually the enough and wise and i think george are amorn takes comes out of this looking okay because it's like when they finally kind of went off script with him the plot abroad unravelled a little bit and that's that's a it's a hard thing to do so i'm not surprised all it and if hata to have like you're the one who created this amazing world and without your words and your influence in your guidance we we can only we can only do at the best and this is not i love the shed that it turns into fan fiction a little bit yeah you can certainly see the seams on the season more than any other season sonal is because the convinced episode run but some of that is because the story time just got floppy well and then we found out later that they cut like the actor who plays brand admitted that there was seen that they shot where santa comes to bran and says essentially i need some help figuring all of this out the it was the scene that we needed because all we go from is you're gonna kill santa because you think she's betrayed you too will now we're gonna kill little finger there was no and we don't ever think they're going to come back to it they're never gonna explain like what was the connect the dots so we got theon instead of a scene where brandt this this the brothers and sisters and i know you lose some of the.
