"gorky" Discussed on Revolutions
"One of the main points of contention at the present Congress was the constituent assembly. Lennon himself delivered a speech to the Congress where he floated the notion that really, when you think about it, there's no need for a constituent assembly because the Soviets are already a higher form of democracy. In response, Victor turn off, put forward a resolution that said, the Congress believes that the Soviets of workers, soldiers and peasants deputies, as the ideological and political guides of the masses should be strong combat points of the revolution standing guard over the conquests of peasants and workers. With such legislative creativity, the constituent assembly must translate into life the aspirations of the masses as expressed by the Soviets. In consequence, the Congress protests against the attempts of individual groups to put the Soviets and the constituent assembly against one another. With Lenin clearly aiming to do just that, the Congress approved turnoffs resolution by a vote of 362 to 321. But with the left SR leader, Maria spiridonova sharing the Congress, the Bolsheviks convinced her to set this vote aside. This brought the peasant Congress to a crashing halt. The right SRs walked out and reconvened elsewhere, declaring themselves the legitimate peasant Congress, while those they had left behind merely an illegitimate rump. The Bolsheviks and left SRs who had been left behind, said exactly the same thing. The matter was ultimately settled by the power of, well, power. The Bolshevik and left SR Congress approved a slate of delegates to go off and join the executive committee of Soviets that they had formed after the October Revolution. That would be a precursor to calling for a third all Russian Congress of Soviet. This one of workers, soldiers and peasant deputies, which would indeed be set up as an alternative to the constituent assembly. And the reason that worked, the reason all of that was considered legitimate is because the Bolsheviks, one. And indeed, Lenin and the Bolsheviks are playing to win. On December 1st, just after the constituent assembly elections ended, the Bolshevik government straight up outlawed the cadet party. Not a prescription of individual cadets, but a blanket ban on the party. Lenin still believed that as the party of the capitalist bourgeoisie, the cadet represented a major threat. Particularly, if they were able to link with the reactionary elements in the military. Lenin, in fact, referred to them in public as the cadet kaladin party. That is the Cossack general setting up white armies down in the south. Just as with the press censorship decree, Lenin was assailed for his attack on civil liberties. Those liberties were supposed to be one of the cornerstones of any post revolutionary regime. We overthrew Zara's tyranny in part because of all the censorship and political controls. Remember? And here you are simply putting all of that back into place. Lennon's old friend Maxine gorky, who? I should mention Lenin still allowed to publish, attack the criminalization of the cadets fundamentally incompatible with political liberty. Even the left SRs who were on the verge of joining Lenin's government protested against his actions..

"That's just a part of what i gather from what My notes in my bullet points are and everything are lustiest. President told the military that before they left baghram air force base that they were to clean up the graffiti and clean up the air force base to pacify the taliban as they took it over our own military had cleanup for the taliban before they could move in. That's just one thing. And then by ten days later asked his military advisers to extend withdrawal deadline ten days after kabul had fallen and now because we have an air force base. It's not gonna stay empty too long. Eddie china is taking over baghram airforce base and assets as i speak are moving in. Oh and you mentioned the southern border. I just saw part of the show.

And whenever the also come over here. They always complain about the jukes ball swings too much and all that kind of stuff so he was part of that kind of family so they opened the shop. Apparently the location was very poor and they didn't do very well. Although today there is a pry mark which i have to say does very well indeed so it the location but then i read an article in the oxford dictionary of national biography. Which you all know and this often quite dry that book but they talks about joseph wells who was his father and they said that he wants broke his thigh by falling from lada and his backyard. On sunday morning while the rest of the family were church officially he had been pruning vine but local gossip alleged that the church service ended earlier than usual and that he was caught helping a lady friend escape over a back. Wall case in anna. You'll think about him writing to who says all well saying you shed. He was quite good at grudges rivalries. So the war of the worlds came out in.

Called warrick goble and goebbels vision of the tripods was these kind of ovoid pods standing on the metal beams and wells. Hated it so much right. He hated this illustration so much that when the first collected version of the book was released not serialized. He added some new material and halfway through the book. He's in the middle of describing a blasted planet earth in the middle of a full war and he describes the first pamphlets to give a consecutive count of the wall. So he's writing about text within the fictional story. He said the artists are definitely made a hasty study of one of the fighting machines. And there has knowledge ended. He presented the tilted stiff tripled without either flexibility all subtlety with an altogether misleading monotony of effect. The pamphlet continues. Reading's had a considerable volk. Am i mentioned the his simply to warn the reader against the impression that they may have created the next initial so incredibly unprofessional. Ruin my enjoyment of a book. Suddenly the step down to bitch about ministry alvin another thing. He would have hated while we're on things that he hates. It would have been his grandsons credit in the movie. Why because he didn't like credits. He didn't think credits should be part of movies. So one thousand nine thirty six. He wrote a movie called things to come and one of the things. He tried to eliminate from the movie was the credits because he thinks all movies shouldn't have them. He thought instead. When you were sitting watching the film little booklets should come round and be handed out the credits of the movie in them Yes i did. Impose the film at various moments to check your booklet and see the causing direct. Guess but i've. I've often wanted some explanatory notes at the end of a fill light which i think is a really good idea. You know if you go to the theater to watch a comedy show is like having a program. isn't it. think. If i was to go and watch a podcast live show. Maybe later this year.

"Makes the end again richard. Because of course so Major major spoiler at the end. Our beautiful distant does stay in the west is she should and ranko returns to the soviet union but his feet about being a russian warranties d. See so to me that has less impact you know when he says like i'm russia. Russia belong in russia. right belong here but he's not really been in sweden long enough and sweden's you know it's actually you know. It's a fairly socialist country and always has been sort of a not. That seem to me. That decision makes much more sense. Because he's saying new york he's seen the west. Seen america is in the heart of america. Award it sort of represents and he's rejected it and he said this isn't for me and there is that element has to go back in order for arenas be able to strike but there is also the element that he doesn't want to stay no matter how much she looks arena. That he doesn't belong with uninvite for me is so much stronger. Makes so much more sense. When you have raincoat in america and there's also a nice reversal because we we didn't even touch bunker. Will the american pulp who does get embroiled at so many layers to talk about him. But but you you see koel and ranko working together in moscow and then you get to see them working together in new york so there's all that would have been yeah like shortchanged brought he. He's he's really good. Yeah he's really performance to again. He's a fascinating character in the book a night and they have it roy as well like again great casting so show. Should we sort of wrap up pretty soon or will need to touch on where where branko ends up. Yeah that would that would be good. Yes what happens off after this okay. Well after they they're nine ranko novels altogether and i. I actually read the first free before doing this. So this being novel number. Three just for clarity this being a whole number one okay. Interesting because i. I wondered whether this was A subsequent one. And i just chose this because it just seems like there's more backstory. Another gilkey park is number one. Okay okay so so. This is how we introduce to ranco. And he does go back to soviet union on the implication from the film to a hero's reception and anything but in the books when we realized that he's actually helps to escape out to siberia. Boy luta in fact okay and he ends up drifting through siberia and we next see him and he's a second class to seaman seaman because for pronunciation a. Working on the factory line of a trailer ship in the bearing. See you know when a body body is. Wash is a fishing net and the captain discovers that actually there is a former special investigator working gutting fish in the hold of his ship. While and back he comes..

"He scored yet in the film. I had a pretty strong sense early on the even though he seems like a very sympathetic boss to ranko. I was pretty sure all pretty early on that he was a wrong right. No i don't think so. I don't think it's obvious. Hey that's more of the shock but they're all people around so you've got more people around to possibly be rollins as you put it all in on that soviet side and so yeah yeah I think it's sort of less less okay. 'cause that was that was not a surprise to me at all what rights the reveal has got. Yep yep i doubt pegged but it didn't spoil my enjoyment. It was just like i saw it coming from a mile away. But i think he's also actually slightly less sympathetic immediately in the book In in the you get this sort of almost paternal sense in the film on a mock paternal. There's not that in the in the in the book or is it more like he's just as boss. Yes i mean he he. He values him or appears to value him. But he's also seems a much harder character in the books untrusting and therefore in a way. It's less obvious gotcha. Yeah and then casualty wants talk about his blue. The kgb who is basically who isn't the villain okay. No he's not. I mean he is. I mean he's kgb officer he's done bad things there's history between him and rancor he has absolutely no involvement in the plot and in end in fact true blue the and ranko sort of come to a sort of understanding by the end of the book I won't go into in debt. Because he you know he wouldn't make sense. But yeah so so. There are elements that are. Yeah the the different. And i just feel that it's a shame in a way because preclude us that much more fascinating in the you have this. Kgb who is clearly sets up to be the person you think is going to be involved or the village and you actually. He actually isn't. Is he a brutes. Yes he is. He's a he's a kgb officer you know but he's he's more complex than by There and there there is a sort of. There's an element this is. There is a scene in the book where where room. It takes ranko a lot longer to get the west for the climax in the book because ranko ends up being basically sort of stabbed and the only reason he survived is because he hasn't eaten anything for days okay So you really again. You get the sense of how far rancor pushes himself to the edge the book which you don't in in in the in the film just the extremities of it ends up having to sort of recuperate in a sanatorium in the countryside and preclude us his god nine and and sort of god sort of water but sort of also just there unlike they end up sort of bonding to an extent and but privileges supposed to execute him is the certain definitely the inference but decides not to for various reasons which you know like a which would will become clear when you read it and i do definitely recommend most hardly that you do and anyone listening if been the fact that boy the nature of this on revealing a lot of what happens in it right. That's the nature of this beast. It is it is indeed and so to the ending as well and the ending in. The book doesn't place in scandinavia. It actually takes place in new york. Oh no way which.

"Seriously. Listeners have washed with melania. You need to soon be covered on this because the zero russian connection. Well actually that. There is a tiny russian connection. As a tiny russian connection and that is the beginning of the screenplay bruce robinson apparently. I haven't read the screenplay but apparently he wrote Dostoevsky has described. Hell as perhaps a room with the cia well room has to. i'm sure he writes it. Sleds paraphrase. That's yet and if that doesn't make people want to watch the film if they haven't done you know like i don't know what will also also one point because he's a thespian with nail checkoff for how people are always talking about ducks going to moscow is a a very tenuous russia. We we call it. You can't you can't build a podcast around. No i don't think i can. I don't think i can crowbar in an episode of this show. I have talked about it on another show. I've talked about it on flicks wise candidate. So if you're interested in hearing that still listener than yet just google that and you can find it was. That was a fun fun. Time yes to future with nail. And i cost memphis. So we've mentioned michael thick and then we've also got uncle monty himself richard griffiths. He's he's richard griffiths account to this not in the book a really is a called. He's a composite. Yeah But he does do he does do a great job Yeah yeah again. You feel like he's he's not in a ton but you just get so much from so little like he's not got out of screen time but you can. He feels like a real person. Yes yeah yeah. Yeah he does feel like a real person the and the people who he has replaced as well do feel like real real people so yeah. And he's a great actor enlivened or having ritchie griffiths in it even if it's just in freezing or is it full but it's it's it's it's the merest handful but it's still enough. Yeah trying to think who else are wanted to mention. Oh yeah that's right alexi sayle yes. Alexi silence gulagin. Yes as the black marketeer yet. That was some good costing as well. Because there's just. I don't know that something about alexi sale where it's like. I don't know he just. He just kind of uses this kind of slight dole genus. Yes yeah absolutely absolutely again. Actually he's interrogation scene. Plays out differently in in in the book That was very sorry. That was very genre. Yeah and i know exactly why they did it. Also actually the the initial attempts on Arenas the the attempt on arenas life also plays out differently in the in in the book. It actually takes place in plus revolut zere metro station. Okay yeah that is a very distinctive meditation so that would have been a fun one for to recreate so i can see why they didn't do that but they instead have ranko jumping through a window which is nice and cinematic justice. The interrogation scene golo can is nice. Cinematic i can see why they might those decisions. Yeah yeah gotcha..

"He's probably not oblivious to how attractive she is but he's not making. Is it her or or anything like suddenly you know they're together and it's kind of like okay. I mean sold toiling jarring in the book okay. That's that's good to know because that was slightly like okay. It's a hollywood film. The you know to attractive leading characters do have to end up in bed together. But this was a little bit southern and i felt like again. I i think joanna you're gonna correct me on the pronunciation. Pets pets sewer more or less pat. Sewer does a yeah. She does a good job with what she's given but what she's given isn't a ton yet. So that's that's a kind of a little underwritten all like under flushed out but again. It's i think. I feel like it's a that primary sacrificing character development for pacing Yet full pacing in the fact that a lot of sort of rank owes fascination comes with the fat the one he sees her. I mean because he does the scene of him going to solve meets her in the studio because she's the first lead because of the skates so that that's pretty much as portrayed some obviously obviously also crops up on the surveillance types and there's a there there are more interactions between the two of them and and you know like the this the fascination is there. You can sort of tell. Yeah so yeah. That's about sort of more excited about the about ranko and his character. But i do think that was a key details. You see sort of less of his friends which gives also more of a just a nice sense of the day-to-day life in the soviet union. And some some some lovely things that for just talking here. I won't go into but they flush out the book. But i can see why they not in the film because you've got yeah exactly at just trying to keep the run time to like people will actually go and see this blatter friendly manageable length..

"I want to cover. But yet at the fact that you've got some differentiation that makes it feel a bit more real annual distracted by people going here law. I am rush. Which is always always a bit much. I find my rule is if it's a russian characters speaking english than yes fine if they have an accent is when the speaking to each other. It's like they wouldn't have a. They wouldn't have accents in that way. Yes in stupid. don't do indeed yes indeed. yeah I kind of got over. That i mean they do mention. She's from siberia but yeah but yeah But she does. She does look very much like she's from that general of the world. Excuse excuse me. Please polish listeners. But i'll agree. It did for me as well like a guy noticed it. And william hurts like he has very piercing blue eyes not the eastern europeans have a monopoly on blue eyes. But he he does like. He's kind of believable. Is like a stereotypical russian. In some ways. I think the costing of the two leads is inspired. I think if you're going to have an american actor play ranko which will be you do that. Box office demand offering william hurts an excellent excellent choice. Okay so sir. No quibble actor. I think the look is right. He is actually kind. Of how i possibly because i did see the film. I even though the picture rancor as william hurt ask in my mind gotcha and now lee. Moving he's portrayed in the book as much more tanned. Okay because i thought it was pretty leathery and yes. Yeah it's true but he seems even more of a tan the book. But i think he's inspired casting. I his At the mana the capability of the man which is incredible. It's vitally important the costing that role like all yell sas to be super capable when you actually in the book you don't find out but he spent actually a lot of time. His involvement in this part of the world comes from world war. Two actually of a getting relief to to leningrad during the same old lines and all sorts of things and so there is a capability to the character Ah steeliness the league mob and obviously has because easily marvin is and i think i'm right in saying he he he did he did serve in will to resolve that as much certainly did. Yeah yeah Oh what was i gonna say. I mean they briefly alludes to the facts while he says you know i met stone. Yes yes so. They kind of alluded to the fact he's been to the And and you know much young a much younger man because nineteen fifty..

"Just because of how much the building's did look aced of block ish and they also had as you probably know like a long standing beef with the soviet union communist but also to line so. I thought maybe it's yugoslavia but it turns out that the most soviet looking bits were probably helsinki used to be a russian city goals. Well yeah of course yeah. It wasn't the russian empire broke breakaway and in the cold war. If memory serves it was it was neutral. Walson sensually yes. Yes and that was kind of like a yellow oviously Communist also was kind of like It decided to kind of stay neutral by. Yeah yeah because it's because of the hat on the stem so so yeah so. That was really impressive. I wasn't there wasn't anything whereas like that's definitely not russia. Even though i knew that it wasn't and the interior felt right to as well didn't they. They did the kitsch. The kitchens and stuff It's you know the flats. They seemed very familiar. Like i get the impression that the people doing the set decoration and stuff that either that all they just re will really meticulous. This was really not a phoned in film. This this was people did that you diligence at that really helped me get in to it because i. That wasn't a ton of things that i was just being distracted by Just be like well. That's not so so that so that how's it to the shop signs and the like the old of that felt right. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. I'm sure if your russian and old enough to remember the soviet union in the early eighties that probably things that you would say the neither russ would say but like from people who lived in in you know post-soviet moscow for long time. It didn't seem it didn't like break the illusion and take me out so that was that was good in terms of things that did slightly take me out but i kind of got over it and it didn't bother me was joanna popula. He plays irina. Horizon was an old Choice i mean. I think that's probably horak's polish. Yeah so i think it's platt suwa. Actually it's is probably say this is. This is why we get someone who lived in for a long time. But but also i mean all i didn't know but like because obviously you can't tell but the the allies the l. with the little line through it as in would say i saw exciting actually found out when i looked to wikipedia a little while ago. Oh yeah so back to things so her accent jaw a little bit for us. It just on. I think he was just because everyone else. That made a decision that we're not doing access like it's essentially essentially like the american characters are american. They have american accents and everyone else is british including his well. Including william hurt. Who isn't yeah. Everyone's doing british excess That's kind of like you yet. Cleared that somehow different from america and they say yes exactly and as an differentiation. Because it's not like everyone speaks with an all patterson william her that way but you've got more working class accents in there was when michael ellsbury cutting gives pasha. Yeah yeah oh we do have to return to costing at that is definitely something..

"But I have to say in the writing of the book I knew Spencer's heritage and I did not know as I was writing it who the other father was, and I was hopefully as surprised as you will be when you find out Good answer. I I didn't want you to give away. That was probably a bad question on my part. Another question for you. What is Gorski Park? That's the name of the band that an Irish woman plays in. She she's the love interest late in the book for one of the brothers on It's a play on words. For course, the plant that grows on Golf courses in the United Kingdom and Gorky Park in Russia. So, uh, did you actually go to this course in Ireland to do your research? Well, that's a hard question, because this Particular golf course doesn't really exist anywhere in the world. But aficionados of golf who's played over and Ireland would certainly recognize certain aspect of the fiction. Of course that I've described, for example. There happens to be a large graveyard to the right. On the first hole. And a lot of people will say. Oh, I know that course and then there'll be other factors. Or details of the course that don't fit the course that they think that that was and might have come from someplace else that I played in Ireland, So it's really an amalgam of different places. I've been in different experiences like that. I like that. I like what you did there, though, I I get it. You've written several other books. This is your first novel. What made you decide to go this rough? This is something I've been doing since the very beginning. It's a very tough feel that it's an impossible and ridiculous way to try to make a living. But I've been writing fiction my whole life. I wrote two previous novels over the course of my life, neither of which was published even though I had agents for them. On Which was so fun for May. Of all the things I've written in my life. This was the most pleasure I ever got from the craft.

"gorky" Discussed on Historically Thinking
"Spared lock arts life and i think this for a number of reasons One of them is that while lockhart was still in prison and more had been released. She was able to bring him. He was imprisoned by the way in a perfectly decent little apartment. Inside the kremlin. She was able to bring him goodies and dante's purchased on the black market with the knowledge of chicago that she was doing that. Well it was illegal to do that. People got shot for purchasing stuff on the black market. So mora had the okay. She had an understanding with the cia. And i think as. I say that the deal was that the car would spare his life if mora would work for them and then i have a second a slight piece of information about this. Which is that mora. Many years later told h. G. wells is son when they were talking about conditions in russia. during that emergency period and when everybody was in great peril and morris said to the sun. Something like to refuse to do what is necessary in such times under such emergency conditions is to elect not to survive and moore was a survivor for to put it mildly. Now another two more parts of this. And i'll let it go One is according mora has to biographers and they both tell the same story which i cannot vouch for but i think it could be true. She was living with maxim gorky. She fell under his spell. She wants said. I heard an interview done with her. In which she said the gorky was a universe unto himself and she deeply admired and loved him although of not in a romantic way. I'm gawking was a maverick. And although he knew lenin and he was sympathetic to the revolution he was not a bolshevik. And the chica- is supposed to have asked mora to spy on gorky to keep them posted of what he was doing was coming into the house. What they were saying and so on and so forth and more couldn't do it and she confessed gorky and gorky simply went to lenin and And said get them to lay off her and lennon got them to lay off. That appears in the biographies. I can't say that it's true. One more actually. I can tell two more things Okay so one is a one year long ago in the nineties. A visiting fellow at saint catherine's college oxford and a number of us were standing. Go into dinner. And i was standing next to an ancient russian historian and we began chatting. And i don't remember this man's name and but he's a very distinguished nigger and i said. Oh well i stay with a russian in london often may be you know her name tanya alexander and he said no. I don't think so. And i said well. She's the daughter of mura bud. Birth and this old man drew back in horror and sort of whispered the words kgb. So on the other hand. When i talked about this with tanya tanya absolutely was certain that her mother liked to be thought of as mysterious and important and she did know all the most important people in the oil respected her and but she was never a spy. And i talked also with tanya's son in law. Sir david wilson. Who is a former.

Then John Federal comes along with the man DeLorean and redeems 40 years of Boba Fett it in two hours of television. You know, exciting news for me. Geek news for me on another front is the TV series dinosaurs is coming to Disney. Plus, if you have Disney, Plus you and if you if you've never seen it, you should watch it. It's a stupid concept. It sounds stupid. As you start watching it, you'll be going. This is stupid until you start really paying attention to it. It's a very, very funny show. Really. Uh, pretty good satire on its its people in dinosaur costumes. Will there be any love? It's costumes and Muppets. It's a combination of things and and the really good voice work and sharp scripts and I think you'll like it. And my favorite part is a former attorney General Bill Bill Borras, the baby? Yeah, it does. Kind of look like this. Got that line. Not the baby. It's so funny. Yeah, baby, not to Mama on the S O just the title character. The main character. It's sort of like the Honeymooners except with dinosaurs. The main character's name is Earl Sinclair. Get it now. That's funny. They don't ever mention why his name is Earl Sinclair. He's a dinosaur named Roll, Sinclair. All right, let's let's move on to some other stuff here. Record numbers of covert 19 patients are pushing hospitals. And staff to the limit. Hospitals reported more than 110,000 coronavirus patients on each of the past two days. That's a record count for the pandemic, according to tracking by the Washington Post. That is more than three times the number. They treated in September and nearly double that reported for the height of the spring surge. California hospitals air saying, that's it where we are now. Officially, we are at zero Capacity in the hospitals in in California. I think they hear bad day here. I think all of this going on is great on its especially great when you know the Trump Donald Trump, the president of the United States, explicitly rejected being the one the lead. The U. S vaccine drive here in America, and he let Mike Pence and congressional leaders do it instead. Because he doesn't really care. He doesn't know. That was a bad day and Utah. Let's see. Do I have that 30 deaths yesterday was a record 30 new deaths. Hospitals are there saying pretty much They're not quite full, the ICUs or not quite full here in Utah, but but it's getting very close. A second wave of vaccine shipments have arrived in Utah, with more hospitals across the state, beginning to give shots to their frontline workers. And as providers have discovered that they can sometimes pull, they found that there's a little extra Juice in the Fizer vaccines in the in the vials that so they can pull an extra dose out of him, which is kind of interesting. They getting supposed to have only five doses per bottle. They're getting six out of them. And, uh, that they're so that that saving money and I heard some more available. I heard some medical nerd talking about this, saying that there when you get a bottle of whatever vaccine there's always a little bit of overflow. But depending on the type of syringe you use, you can get an extra dose, which I don't know how that works. But that's just But with all of this, Yeah, there's a story here in Where did this come from? Um, some. I don't know what the publication was the title Americans are in full revolt. Against pandemic lockdowns. In full revolt. Was talk about Utah teachers showing Um, schoolwork. So we talked yesterday about the Salt Lake City school district teachers, the Legislature has said, unless you go back to in law go back to in classroom teaching. We're not going to give you the bonus that all of the other teachers in the state are gonna get 1500 bucks. Solid city. No, your your your teachers won't So one thing to realize about this, too, which I didn't yesterday. It's not just teachers were talking about Talking about school workers in general. Yeah, the people who drive the bus is on. They're still working many of them. They're not delivering kids to the schools, but they're driving meals around. On giving giving kids meals s o all kinds of workers, janitorial workers. All of those people were entitled to a bonus, but but not in Salt Lake because the Utah State Legislature wants to punish them. Robert Gorky wrote a column about it and they're a couple of things in the column that I think a really worth pointing out. He says it better. Than than any of well, certainly better than I can. This is a blatant attempt Rights Mr Jerky in the Salt Lake Tribune to force Solich City schools to ditch online classes in favor of in Person Council or in person schooling. Speaker Brad Wilson. The Kaysville said as much that if the teachers want the money, they'd better get back to face to face lessons. By the time the Legislature convenes. It's almost like these Republican leaders couldn't help themselves, taking something great and making it hollow and.

"And I was thinking a little bit about the the novel and the movie A river runs through it. Few years back with Brad Pitt. It's about fishing, but it's not really a fishing book. Is that a fair comparison to say? That's a very good comparison, especially because it's also about the relationship between two brothers. On the strong influence of their father. You've got two brothers. One is named Phillip one. His name's Spencer Philip. Finds out that he's 46% Jewish Jewish ancestry. 40% Irish, British Spencer 46% Jewish ancestry. And 40%, Spanish. So They have two different fathers was one And Irish golf, pro and the other a Spanish prince. What would lead you down this road? Don't want to give too much away J.

Pilot Calls Tower and Receives Instructions That Are All Greek to Him
"Again true pilots stories from the world of generally in this this episode a one seventy two pilot calls tower and receives an instruction. That's completely Greek to him. Of course he is flying in in Greece. This could be interesting. Bring Your Greek dictionary and ride along in say again by Carl Doorman as I entered the down wind leg of the Corfu Greece airport I contacted tower and I did not understand understand a word they said now what to do. It was nineteen eighty four and I was flying from Rhode Island to Israel in one thousand nine hundred sixty exte- Cessna one seventy two with my flight student Aria Rona the trip recently brought us through the beautiful Rhone Valley in France over the Mediterranean NC for three hundred and twenty five nautical miles in instrument conditions and route to Ciampino International Rome's secondary airport as we checked in with Roma approach at nine thousand feet requesting vectors to final at Ciampino. We could hear that the controllers were quite busy we we were assigned to holding pattern at nine thousand feet northeast over the Roma. VR which is adjacent to the Ciampino airport we were preparing to land on runway one four as advised by the Avis. So who do you think were the best air traffic controllers on the entire trip. I can tell you without hesitation. It was the Italians the controllers stepped us down a thousand feet at a time from holding pattern to holding pattern I two eight thousand feet then to seven thousand feet all the way down to one thousand feet and then vectored us to the final approach to runway one four for these controllers were so smooth and so professional as the handled us with kid gloves we switched over to one to zero point five Ciampino Tower and we're cleared to land and then guided to the runway exit where we switched to ground control and taxi to the F. B. over parking we stayed in Rome for two days to see some of the famous historical sites now it was Sunday we were ready to continue our trip the next destination Brindisi on the east coast of Italy just two hundred sixty nautical miles to the southeast we noticed that there was very little air air traffic along the way and at the airport after landing we'd taxi to the FBI to get fuel and we're surprised to find everything was closed at the Brindisi airport. We had forgotten it was Sunday. It did not occur to us that some places at the airport might be closed. We were lucky enough to meet some pilots from the local Brindisi Flying Club. WHO said they could help us? After we told them our plight their club did not usually sell fuel to pilots not members of the club but they graciously made an exception. Thank you Brindisi Flying Club. We then departed from Brindisi to the east one hundred ten nautical miles across another part of the Mediterranean Sea to Corfu an island in Greece also known as Kirk era after listening to the Kirk Avis and contacting Kirk your approach. We were advised to change to frequency one to zero point eight five and contact. Kirk here a tower. We checked in with tower on the downwind leg of runway three five asking for permission to land. I heard a clear response. That sounded to me. Something like Gorky. Mom Bit Blit Loiter. I asked the controller say again his reply. I again sounded similar to Gorky Moment Lipton. Loiter had absolutely no idea what this controller was saying to me. I thought it would be best just to broadcast my intentions and slow and clear English and proceed to runway three five which was a comforting seven thousand seven hundred hundred ninety two feet long as I continue down wind opposite might touchdown point. I again broadcast my intentions receiving again a similar undecipherable reply from the tower. I still understood nothing. I repeated my intentions again. Dan as I turned final received the same response and I landed after taxiing departing. I decided it would be a good idea to visit the tower her see the controller and find out what he said upon entering the tower as the controller began speaking to me here was the same sounding founding voice but now that I could see his lips moving. I had no problem understanding him. I discovered he understood me just fine and that he was telling telling me proceed as requested so much for English being the International Universal Aviation Language Eleven learned not understanding the tower controller is just as bad as lost come stay focused become all fly the airplane and continue your approach broadcasting your intention slowly in clear English look for any light signals from the tower our if no signals land and clear the runway as soon as possible
