Bringing the Light Back to Christmas

"Guys, I love the Christmas season. I'm gonna be talking to you about angel tree. Shortly here. But I absolutely love the Christmas season. I was, I got to listen to some of Dennis's prager prager showed the other day and he was talking about Christmas lights and many people that have or adorn their homes with Christmas lights and there's not as many and how joyful it is for people around neighbors or people that drive through to watch and to see and observe Christmas lights or something about tradition. There's something about the joy of the holiday of Christmas and there was an interesting caller that called in at theorize that, you know, a lot of people since they've kind of fallen away from God if you will my words, not the callers, but I'm paraphrasing. They have blown up the Halloween season where they go crazy. Cuckoo for cocoa puffs when it comes to Halloween lights, but not necessarily for Christmas lights anymore. And I think there's a, I think there's some truth to that theory. And a man, I absolutely love Christmas. There's a particular house just as of maybe a year or two ago in the Orlando area that people have known for maybe 20 or 30 years. As long as I can recall, as long as I've lived here, where people would visit this one particular home that wasn't too far from me, maybe it was actually just a few blocks from me at one point in time. I moved a little further away. So now it's just a few miles from me, but nonetheless, people would travel to this home, and they would, they would, I mean, I'm talking about you would go to this one. Wasn't the most, it's not a rich neighborhood by any stretch of the imagination, a blue collar, neighborhood, right next to an elementary school, but this House would be so adorned with lights. You could see it from the street. I mean, from the highway and people would travel people would talk about it on local radio to go see this. And it was a tradition. And I would always wonder if people decorated their homes anymore, or if

What Christmas Really Means

"Knew it was Christmas, obviously, half my street was decorated, which, by the way, I yearned for terribly. Every year it seems there are fewer Christmas decorations up and more Halloween decorations up. That gives you an idea of the decline of American civilization in a nutshell. When Halloween is evokes more decorations in a given neighborhood than Christmas does. And in my junior year in college, I was I went down to Morocco from England, took the train, first crossed the English Channel onto the continent, trained all the way down to southern Spain than to Cabot. To tangiers, Morocco. And it was Christmas break. I don't know if it was called Christmas break then or winter break. Or whatever. I don't know if it was a massive Christmas denial at that time as eventually ensued. In any event, I thought something was deeply missing in my life those two weeks that I was in The Rock guards there alone. And then I realized what it was. It was Christmas. And I thought, wow, I miss Christmas.

It was believed that she was engaged to her girlfriend Ramona, a groomer. They made a 7 months and people assumed the question was asked and, you know, they got engaged. Because they were making out in a corner and telling everyone how excited they are to be engaged. That's what they said as a constant meanness tequila Halloween costume party. You know, George Clooney's tequila? The party Heathrow is on Halloween that he never attends because he's got a life now in children and they will both sporting diamonds on their ring fingers and people said the question was popped a couple of weeks ago. Let me ask you something. Why would two lesbians wear rings on their ring finger to show their engaged? And then only come out to say, no, no, no, we're not. Except to say they just want God damn it tension. You know, rebel was she loves a joke. She turns everything into a joke. She said, well, I was doing a thing called hot girl summer. I heard about it in rap songs and I was like, that sounds fun. But it really wasn't me a little bit more of a conservative girl normally. The date a few people over the summer and I had a really nice time and apparently single and looking for the right person. That's what she said over the summer.

Elon Musk Is Not a Smart Man and Will Destroy Twitter Says Bob Cesca

"You know what's amazing about this is Elon Musk like Donald Trump is considered falsely to be this business genius. He just invented a business model for Twitter that's actually worse than Trump steaks. Right. And actually, Trump steaks selling beef in a sharper image mall store. Suddenly is a better business model. Comparatively. You said that you said Elon's not a smart man. He stands on the shoulders of far greater minds and insisted endows him with similar intellect clearly. He's delusional because you were responding to someone saying, how will removing the verification, which will cause thousands of new fake accounts to be created, reduced bots and trolls, which is what he said, right? He said, he says, it's the only way to defeat the bots and trolls. And you just said, how about banning? The bots and trolls. That's true. Instead, you're punishing people who are definitely not bots for trolls, people who submitted government documentation of their identities in order to prove who we are, this is a BS excuse. It really is. Yeah. He walked in as a relatively new user of Twitter and fell prey to I think the stereotype, which is that blue check is some sort of status symbol. And that's exclusively all it is. It's actually not. There's a protective purpose here. And in the wake of the 2016 election, you would think the social media platforms would want to take a stronger posture when it comes to weeding out disinformation and fake accounts and fake news and all the rest of it. But Elon Musk is just walking right into this propeller and not realizing that he's making the situation on Twitter far worse that's absolutely going to disintegrated into the sad mall. Every town has a sad mall where there's we'll talk to Carlos about the sad Burbank mall. Yes. Yeah. A couple of stores in a spirit Halloween and that's it. That's all. Is there still Spencer gifts? Yeah, that's right. That's a dollar store. That's about all. And that's going to be Twitter. And I would say it's a matter of months, not years. That is just going to slowly start to fall apart. And already, people with gigantic accounts, millions and millions of followers. Are looking at alternatives.

While the team was wearing these dark uniforms with the dark Pfizer's and the idea was to go dark mode. Against Kentucky, very intimidating. And so anyway, some guy who likes to troll people on a social media and ESPN has been suckered by this guy, a lot of folks have been suckered by this guy, and he suggested that the Tennessee fans should blacken their faces for the dark mode game. In other words, they should go blackface. Well, Casey Thunderbird saw the tweet and she went after the guy, and she said, oh, this is disgusting. How dare you? You shouldn't be saying something like this. This is bad and she rebuked the guy and called him out. Well, it wasn't too long after that.

"Happy Halloween. And what are you maverick from Top Gun? I'm dark friended. Oh, and you're a balloon. I'm inflation dummy. Scary. What are we have here? I've got full size skittles. I've got some tootsie rolls. Oh, and what else is in here? Rainbow fentanyl. The DEA warning that deadly rainbow fentanyl could end up inside of a candy bag of your kid. They've found rainbow fentanyl in 21 states. It looks like candy. And in fact, some of the drug traffickers have nicknamed it. SweeTarts. Skittles. We'll just take the tootsie rolls, mister. Suit yourself. Happy Halloween. The annual Halloween hysteria. On today explain. Young children now going out to trick or treat. I mean, basically parents have a decision to make. You don't let your kids get that candy. It doesn't mean the person giving it out is intending to go on. You throw away all the nerds in the sweet talks. Today explained, but we're gonna talk about three days from today. Monday's Halloween, on Monday, kids across the continent will take to the streets to trick or treat, and some of their parents will be worried about rainbow fentanyl. It's the latest in a long line of Halloween panics, candy apples with razor blades, poison candy bars, marijuana gummies, the latest freak out over rainbow fentanyl, made us want to ask someone in the know whether any of these Halloween panics has ever been based in, you know, reality. Here's to me the absolutely fascinating part of the story. According to sociologist Joel bass, who began a study of this going back to 1958, and he's actually carried it forward to today. He updates it every year. He has not found a single incident. Oh my gosh. A single confirmed incident of either a child's death or injury related to tainted candy. Are someone in the know is W Scott pool. He teaches about the history of horror at the college of Charleston. Now, one can never say, you know, with 100% accuracy, it never happened one single time. Sure. But we can say that despite the huge amount of press attention that's been given to it, that law enforcement has given to it that politicians have given to it in religious leaders, not a single incident from 1958 until 2022 has occurred. But there was one case that happened a month before Halloween. That terrified the nation. The 1982 Tylenol murders right at the beginning of the 80s at a moment when probably the panic over Halloween candy and local communities was at its height. Added to the idea that there were dangerous strangers out there seeking to harm your children, even though it was an unrelated issue. It wasn't specifically directed toward children. It didn't take place at Halloween. Even if you've never heard of these murders, you see the effects of these murders every time you go into a store, because these led to the safety seals that we see in the tamper proof packaging that we see on everything from salad dressing to Tylenol today. My name is Stacy saint Clair and I'm a reporter with the Chicago Tribune. And along with my colleague Kristi gutowski, we have been digging into the Tylenol murders in advance of the 40th anniversary this year. And though this really didn't have anything to do with Halloween, it did have a serious impact on halloweens across the country that year. Is that right? That's right. The murders took place in late September of 1982 and they sent the country into a panic. Are they terrible? Somebody, somebody's crazy. It has to be. I think what bothers me more than just this incident, if it can happen with this. What else can it ever? And that's really, really gives you the creeps. We talked to a 150 people as part of the project and I would say 50% of them talked about Halloween and how Halloween loomed so heavily over this sort of national crisis because people didn't know where the killer intended to strike next. And so you saw it in communities canceling Halloween. If you're concerned about safety, this Halloween, instead of trick or treating, consider having a party at home. If you do decide to send your kids out, keep these tips in mind. Well, I want to ask you more about that later, but walk us through what happened 40 years ago in Chicago. So on September 29th of 1982, 7 people in the Chicago area took Tylenol that had been laced with cyanide, the acetaminophen that was in the capsules was poured out and potassium cyanide was put in its place and then put on the store shelves. And there was nothing about the way the capsules looked or the bottles looked that could have warned people about what was inside. And each capsule contained at least three times the minimum dosage to kill somebody. So once the people swallowed it, they didn't have a chance of survival. Even if the doctors knew what they had ingested, there was no chance of saving them. It is a violent, horrific death. Give us a sense of the 7 people who died. So the 7 people include a 12 year old girl, named Mary Kellerman, two young mothers, Mary Sue mcfarlane and Mary Reiner, Mary Reiner had just given birth to her fourth baby less than a week earlier. And was taking Tylenol per her doctor's orders during her recovery. There was a flight attendant named Paula prince, who was the last person found and then there was three members of the same family, and they were the key for medical investigators to figuring out what was killing young, healthy people. So randomly. And what happened was a man named Adam Janice, a young father, was home from work. He took some Tylenol, his wife found him unresponsive, and his family gathered at the hospital. To hear what happened and try to figure out what to do next. So they get the tragic news about Adam. They go back to Adam's house and start planning a funeral. And Adam's brother and his new sister in law had headaches.

Have you seen this? It's starting to Philippines. There's these anti cheating hats, and it's gone viral and it's inspired colleges to follow suit and, you know, do the same thing. So there's these students at one college in some city in the Philippines, were asked to wear bizarre apparel designed to prevent them peeking at their classmates papers. A lot of people responded by creating homemade contraptions out of cardboard, egg boxes, and other recycled bullshit, one person even made their own goggles using paper tubes. You've seen the picture, people pull on hats or helmets or Halloween masks. I mean, I don't understand this. The teacher behind this all is saying, insurers the integrity, it's a fun way to ensure the integrity and honesty in class. Listen, Americans don't copy what the kids in the Philippines are doing.

Charlie Pierce: The GOP Assault on the Vote Is Reaching Boiling Point

"By the way, you quote you quoted a guy at the Trump rally on why he loves Trump. The biblical principles that Trump embraces is what I really like about him. I've never heard another president invoke the name of God and Jesus as much. He's embracing biblical principles, follow the Bible, and you can't go wrong, and you just said a cult, moi. He's embracing he's embracing biblical principles and he'll probably have to like send them some hush money. And for a while. Yeah. Because that's what he does to anything he embraces, I think. And I thought this one thing you retreated was parody, but it is actually from the heritage foundation. It says the price of skittles jumped 42% from last year, not to mention the cartels are stuffing skittles bags with deadly fentanyl, happy Halloween from the Biden administration. Would you like to, you know, go ahead. I mean, maybe they are smuggling the stuff in that way. I mean, it's possible, I guess. But as you pointed out, over and over again, they're not going to give the product away. That way. Drug dealing does not work that way. No. Yeah. Charlotte, let's get to your because unfortunately we're short on time, but that's because that's because I'm a fool. That's all right. But to your piece, the GOP assault on the vote is about to come to a boil is what you were just referring to. You said it's all coming together in Arizona and the Supreme Court should be so very proud. The personal right to bear arms dovetails with the increased constitutionality of voter suppression, two sons from different mothers. Wow, you went pundit there for a moment. But as you were talking about these armed individuals with the tactical gear outside the drop boxes, and you said the national Republican Party is all in behind the notion that 2022 elections are already corrupt at parties de facto leader traffic in this poison should surprise approximately nobody. I mean, to your point, Charlie, what do we do about this? I know. I saw one grandma, you know, telling them off, which good for her, you know, I would just say don't be intimidated by them, right? I mean, that's the only in terms of what you can do individually. That's about it. Until you can elect a Congress that is sufficiently veto proof to give us a Voting Rights Act again. And somehow, you know, make it Supreme Court proof and I don't know how the hell you do that at this point. But yeah, I mean, you've got one of our two political parties with no respect for anything anymore. Yeah. None. I mean, top to bottom stem to stern from the U.S. Senate to school boards. You know, that's where we're at. And it's a situation that was created, deliberately. And now it's, you know, now it's Chernobyl. Yeah. It's running beyond control. Charlie, I don't know what the chances are of getting what we have in California across the country. But to me, this argues more and more, this violence against poll workers and intimidation to drop boxes for mail in voting to make just mail in make that the law of the land. I mean, it's what we have in California. It's roughly the same principle as to why they fought RU 44 86 so hard. Because you can have your sense of privacy and do what you need to do, and they can't come in like, you know, glue their heads to your door or whatever. Right. Or shoot your doctor in the head. Right. Yeah. No, exactly. By the way, my favorite headline of yours ever. Steve Bannon unlikely to feel the slap on the wrist through his many collared shirts. That's my man Vic brand down esquire headquarters. I'm not a headline guy. But I too appreciated that. Great deal. But does he wear long sleeved shirts or does he wear short sleeved shirts? I think they're long sleeve. Yeah. I think really because that would be horribly uncomfortable, I would think. Yeah. Yeah, you would think. Of course. You know, then again. Then again, he looks like gout got gout. It belongs in the Smithsonian. Once tried to say in The New York Times, you know, that's probably, you know, you sacrifice comfort a long time ago. Yeah. Well, why is he still able to do a show, by the way? I know. I know. Why isn't there a gag order on this guy? I know. Whatever happened to like cuffing people as soon as a sentence comes down and taking them to jail. Whatever happened to that. Well, I mean, it's releasing, I mean, for all we don't like the guy. He wasn't convicted of very much. Right, but he was still convicted of ignoring a congressional subpoena. Right. Which is a crime. Right. But that's a decision. Yes, if he was a 13 year old black kid in the sky. That's what I mean. Who makes the decision? I appreciate that. But so the judge makes the decision whether he gets to be free on bail or go to jail right away. I mean, the judge was the judge was plainly doing his trumpian duty there. He didn't find him practically, you know. Steve Bannon can raise $6500 in an afternoon. Yeah. So, you know, I didn't have any expectations that he was going to wind up in jail

"I really don't like it. Okay. So let's put curse. I think 11. Back after. Well, that's not true. Is it 11? That's very strong. It's not very good. It's a very confusing. This is the problem also with being the age that we are because it's like, it almost feels sacrilegious to be reading Rob Zombie and David Gordon green movies above even though it's like, it's not like it's a John Carpenter film, but up to 6 is essentially like how I grew up. Yes. You know what I mean? So to me, it's hard to see the James movies are actually the movies that I remember the best because that's when I was like in my oh, I get to watch a horror movie. I would read four pretty high. And in fact, I think I saw this could be wrong and if it's wrong, I apologize, but you know, there are a couple of different scenes that feature characters watching movies in this film. And I think that Corey's dad or stepfather I'm not sure who he is is watching marked for death. The Segal movie. And that movie was directed by Dwight H little, who are also directed Halloween four would keep on keep an eye out for my passion book on joint H little. Can you name any other films directed by Dwight H little? Did he direct a powers booth movie? Let me see. I'm not seeing that. I would like to give you a couple of the titles that he made. He made a film called free Willy two the adventure home. Okay, that's the sequel to the film. It's 1600. He directed the filmed adaptation of tekken king. Remember how good tekken was? That was a tremendous game. I loved tekken. He made a phantom of the opera movie. And he tried to broken arrow? No. That's John whoo, bro I came up on his credits here. Maybe he worked on it. He might have been producer, possibly. He was a producer of broken arrow. The John whoo John Travolta Christian Slater film. That's a nice house. Okay. I'm just going to recap for the very confused audience. We have a 13 Halloween resurrection at 12 Halloween ends at 11 Halloween the curse of Michael Myers, then going back at one we have the original Halloween, two, we have Halloween three, three, we have Halloween two, four we have Halloween H2O, 20 years later. I'm gonna say at ten, I'll go ten zombie the first zombie. The first zombie. Then I'm gonna do kills at 9

"But then when you're watching lords of Salem, you're just like, yeah, he's more in, it literally interested in it. Because I have to bury myself alive after this, yeah. Right. The Halloween movies are interesting in part because they defy your expectations. It's not even just a patent field, but of doctor Loomis, for example. Doctor Loomis transforms from this sort of crazed and wide eyed haunted figure who is pursuing the goodness, the safety of the world, to this really venal monstrous, self serving jerk, especially in the second film. And even Laurie strode by the end of Halloween two is, you know, she's become inculcated in somehow. A part of the evil history of this story. And I don't know. It's hard to compare those two movies to the rest of these movies, even though the future Michael Myers in a lot of sick kills because they're working at a very different frequency, but they have their defenders. And they also have people some people hate these movies. Well, this is also like around the time there was like a couple of platinum dunes reboots of so there was like the Texas chainsaw massacre, one there was a pretty good Jason around this time, right? Friday the 13th Texas chainsaw massacre and nightmare on Elm Street were all rebooted around this time. The Texas chainsaw mat. There are all three of them are very slick all three of them are very sort of like circa 2005 music video directors. Marcus nispel is the king of those films. They're like a little too glossy and prefab for me, but they do have they often have good kills. The zombie movies are mangy but beautiful, you know, like there really is a lot of technique technique thank you. Yeah, it was very artistic the movies, even though they were very dire. And then, like I said, Halloween, Halloween kills and Halloween ends concludes the 13 films. This kills your favorite of the DJs. I was thinking back when you were just talking earlier about you showing up at the restaurant Salazar the night that you and your wife Phoebe saw the first David Gordon green film. Your wife also a big fan of Halloween films. None of these movies. She was not a fan of that first film. I remember and she was and at the time we were producing the Halloween podcast series with Amy Nicholson, which is I think a really wonderful series and everybody participated in that John Carpenter Blum. We talked to everybody Jamie Lee. And

"Later, from the original, Halloween four, 6 years pass, the return of Michael Myers an attempt to kind of rebuild the Myers mythology is the Jamie trilogy, right? Yes, this is Jamie Lloyd, who is the daughter of Laurie strode, but who is living with foster parents and is haunted by the idea of Michael Myers throughout the film, doctor Loomis also returns in this movie, Halloween 5 is a direct sequel to that film. It is released actually less than a year later in an attempt to capitalize on the success of four. Then another 6 years pass, and then we get the very strange the curse of Michael Myers. This is the Paul rud the Paul Rudd film. The Tommy one where he's stealing babies. He plays Tommy Doyle and he's stealing children and this is closer to that sort of like druid cult mythology around the history of Michael. And then 1999, I think, has become a kind of nostalgic fan favorite H2O 20 years later. Not my favorite. I know you and Bill are big fans of this. It's closer to scream. It was very much like a reaction to scream, and I thought it was probably. Without being sacrilegious because obviously the first is the best. This is my favorite use of Jamie Lee Curtis. Interesting. So it's her and Josh Hartnett, Michelle Williams, is in this. And she is a principal at a boarding school where her son Josh Hartnett goes and she is very overbearing in a sweet way towards keeping Josh Hartnett's safe because somewhere out there is Michael Myers. She knows it. And he's like, you got to get over yourself. I want to go to college. I want to grow up. And it's a great setting for this. For Michael to be terrorizing boarding school kids. And it's just the right amount of scary versus fun. Like LL Cool J plays like the security guard. It's very enjoyable. This film has an uncredited rewrite from Kevin Williamson, which is why it feels so much like a scream film. Halloween resurrection follows that, which is a

"These are a series of issues that I bumped on throughout the film. I will say, once again, though, for me, I didn't care as much about the over the edge of the river's edge or the 1950s delinquent style movies like the blackboard jungle style movie that they were trying to make here. If that was its own movie, directed by David Gordon green, I would have been interested in it. But I really liked that first 5 minutes, like I said. And I did like the conclusion of the movie. Yeah. I did like the final showdown between Laurie and Michael, and I did like the absolutely, truly visceral to the blood and bone conclusion. Yes. And which is a basically like a baroque painting of carrying Michael's crucified body on the top of a car hood and then putting him into a industrial chipper, like a wood chip or two. His carcass is ground to me. Yeah. At the end of the film. And part of it is because it gave a true sense of finality, and of course all slashers. There's no finality in Michael Myers will be back for sure. But I liked that they were willing to go as far as possible, especially as I've been revisiting the Halloween movies, they work pretty hard to make sure you don't see Michael die. Yes. You know, that we don't see his body get. We don't see his limbs get sliced off. So his head get caught in one. Is it one that she traps him in the floor and burns number two? Is it kills the end of the first David Gordon green is that he has burned alive underneath? And then he is sort of stabbed but escapes. He's like stabbed to death by the mob. That's kills, but then escapes anyway. Right. So that's it. That's the end of the David Gordon green trilogy. And now he's off to make what I think is a trilogy of exorcist films.

"Hi, guys. Well from gorgeous, Salt Lake City Utah. It's thank God I'm atheist. The podcast. I'm Frank Feldman, and I'm Dan beecher. And coming up on the show today, Dan, it's a Halloween hullabaloo. It's a spooktacular. No, we're not gonna be doing anything spooky, but we are gonna be talking about some scared little Christians. Oh, 'cause it's Halloween and it's spooky. It is for them. It's goblins and Google. I mean, maybe maybe they're making it a better holiday because they're actually scared. Oh, I'm not. I'm not actually scared by Halloween, but they are. They're having a good time. What a great help. They're doing it right. I had never occurred to me that those assholes are actually doing it right. Well, if you believe in Supernatural shit, yeah, you could have a demon. Haunting you somehow. Hey, before we go on, I want to talk about it at the top of the show this time. Oh, yeah. We've got our meet up coming up on the 13th of November. Yes. Here in Salt Lake City, we still haven't locked down. We have plans, but we haven't locked them down yet, so we can not announce like a venue. The venue. We know what we're doing. We just need the venue. But which we're lining up. It's coming soon. So just mark your calendars. If you can be here, we have already had people from other parts of the country, letting us know that they're going to be coming soon to email us. Email us. No. We're getting the emails then we'll send you the information as once we have it. Once we have it, so we're getting your emails. We will respond to you when we know what the fuck we're doing. But it's going to be like an afternoon evening. Yeah. Yeah, count on it being a good portion of the afternoon and then into the evening, partying, you know, we want to rock and roll all night and party every day. And that's what we're working towards. Yeah. And we're all we're atheists. We know you're most likely vaccinated, 90% of you are, but we do, but we do. We're gonna have some fun. We do ask that you be vaccinated. Oh yeah. Oh yes. Please, please honor system. It's the honor system, but please show up vaccinated. That's what we're saying. If you're not vaccinated, get tested before you come. Within 72 hours. We'll just go by travel rules. It's all on our system. It's all our system. I don't trust you, but we don't, we're not going to police it, so there you go. That's terrible. Well, do you have any good story? I'm starting with a Halloween story Dan. Over in Poland. Halloween has been one of the great American culture exports. Yeah. That has happened. It's this fun thing kids dress up in their costumes, go door to door trick or treating, getting candy. It's fun. And people love it. People love it here. We recognize that Americans didn't invent all of these things. We just perfected it. It's been packaged in a glorious way. Yeah. And people like to do it. They see it in movies, right? Because again, that's also a major American cultural export. Yeah. Movies. But not every button, not everybody in these places that were Halloween arrives really appreciate Halloween has arrived. What? And I mean, they're going to be talking about a little bit in depth on the end of the show about how even a lot of American religious types don't like Halloween. But over there in Poland where the Catholic Church reigns as supreme, which sure does. Halloween has been making its inroads into the local culture and in Kraków there's the primary school number 34 was planning on having a Halloween party for kids. And the kids would be able to change the costumes and get candies and treats and whatnot. And there was a parent, of course who did not like this idea. Not one bit. And claim and complained to the education board, who then intervened in the affair, and the event was canceled. The day before our boo. The Halloween party. They've been working on those costumes. Come on, man. So the parents of the other kids were all pissed, one writing on sort of their community website for the school. Our daughter was very happy about this party. She had already prepared a costume. Yes, of course. Yeah. Right. Kids are going to be excited about this. That's what you do. And now one stick in the mud ruins it. She is sad that the event has been canceled, and so are her friends. Another parent posts posted. There are so many church celebrations at school. Gross. Yeah. And everyone has to live with them, although not everyone likes it. But one voice of dissatisfaction is enough for Halloween to be canceled. It's a very valid point, very, very valid. Apparently top officials in the school system in Poland have they don't really like Halloween. And they've been trying to shut it down. So it was kind of clear that when this one parent went to complain about it, they knew what the outcome was. I feel like John Hughes knew that school officials are all just sticking the mud curmudgeons. But that's a Ferris Bueller reference right there, kids. They've been trying these officials to suggest other alternatives. Halloween. Oh, good. What could the kids do instead of Halloween's? So they have one that's called holy wins. Isn't that cute? In which young people dress up as their favorite saint. Oh, isn't that fun? Yeah. You know what? I have read up for how to heretic, I read up on a number of Halloween or of saints. And let me tell you something. They're just as horrific as anything you can think of like literally if they go for saints, there's the guy that, you know, they could do Somme Denis from France who carried his own head for 5 miles. Oh, yeah. That's a great. That's a great Halloween. Holy wins. Yeah. Get up. Here's a picture of some kids that these were posted onto Twitter. These kids don't look very happy dressed up in sort of none outfits and whatnot. Here's one poor child who's dressed up as Mother Teresa. Not enjoying herself. It is a very good costume, though.

"The what's that you said. The calls coming from inside the house but doesn't even make sense. That's not how phones work mean. We don't even have a landline. So if there's a phone call. That's happening and i'm inside the house. And then the people have their cell phones. And i guess the call could be coming from inside the house but i don't know if they can pinpoint that exact. Do they know where exactly where phone calls coming from. And so they can see on some sort of a map or something that the the calls coming from inside the house. Who's this is it an intercom. Maybe is that what's happening. No no no not not. I believe we in some some sort of paperwork and we got a telephone utensils that zia but we would ask Disclose and Despondent fi. Exactly what we will Located when we will make a telephone call. I'm looking around. I don't know if you can me. I'm i am looking around. I did hear the phone ring.

And then they call the person call producer beep like i'm not be i don't know phone. I don't even know my phone number. I had to fill out a form the other day and it said what's your phone number and i said i wish you would tell me is what i said to that form and you know that form said to me and probably nothing is that what the nothing but make sense because it to form forms.

That was that was really interesting to me with the buck. And i don't want to talk about the bucket thing. Because i think i totally forgot that we were all obsessed in freaking out at the beginning of the episode. There was a phone call was coming from and duck. How good call pig because We never really figured that out. We got off track a few. We got up on several different tracks. And yeah there's a phone call that it's coming from inside the house. Everybody and i think it's very serious because you would to tomorrow is does anybody do you know. What has anyone looked at the calendar. I haven't looked at the counter that everybody notes not garbage dow recycling. Because it's a weekend that we don't they don't then on peak up on the is not easy like a leaf kinda day. You're gonna put pick up some some ground ground ground theory no the stinger fitting the bundle round now. No okay no you know. The i believe the post office is closed on the weekend. I don't really know is there's no court open on the weekend I i'm i'm slumming. Those are really the places that i go to. I like to go to the post office. Sometimes and then some other days. I'll go to the court of law. Obviously falon papers mayland paints picking papers up. Now it's not on. Can't i can't wrap my mind around what it might be bumping guy.

It's a it's a thing that happens in halloween type movie scary movies and people are like. Oh my gosh there's a phone call and it's coming from inside of the how. Yeah so thank you pig for getting us back on track and letting everyone know how serious this situation is. 'cause we're all sitting in this room together so we're not calling each other so that means that somebody else. Some random person is calling us and it's right next to halloween. Which makes it extra scary. Because we don't know who it is and they speak be anyone in their if they're already inside the house like why are they calling us. Why aren't they coming in. Or i don't know it's your move telephone just started ringing. I don't feel we answer.

"Festival. Black cats which is and bats. Neither of these things really have anything to do with harvest festivals or traditional. All saints day festivities there rather modern adaptations of older beliefs which got linked to halloween due to the holidays association with death. And the occult while the idea of which is has always been around european culture. The association with halloween probably came about from the salem which trials and it's unique american history. The image of a witch flying around on a broom actually dates back to the mid fifteenth century. Refreshment by the name of johm eldeen confessed to flying around on a broom and it was a man not a woman there illustrations of witches on brooms dating back from the same time period. The stereotypical image we have of which is wearing pointy black hats. Actually come from l frank bombs book the wizard of oz in the year nineteen hundred illustrations. Of which is in the book the basis of the wicked witch of the west and the wizard of oz movie which became the modern idea of a witch. Black cats have always been bad luck and they have always been associated with witches according to the belief in medieval europe which is would turn themselves into black cat so they could go unnoticed. But i don't know why they would do that when they could. Just fly broom. There are a few theories on why bats are associated with halloween. The first is that when the selwyn bonfires were lit he would often results in bats flying up and away from the fire the other has to do with the old wives tale that if a bad is founded a house i mean someone is going to die and that links up with the halloween association with death candy corn thankfully this abomination of a food product is only seen around halloween it dates back to the eighteen eighty s when george deniger of the wunderle candy company created product which was called chickenfeed the white yellow and orange pieces are designed to look like kernels of corn today the candy company brock's make seven billion pieces of candy corn per year which is approximately seven billion too many they own eighty five percent of the candy corn market today. Originally the candy wasn't associated with halloween. It was a penny candy that was available year round in the second half of the twentieth century. Other better candy became more widely available and candy. Corn became relegated to halloween because of its harvest connotations so our modern halloween celebrations are really a grab bag of ancient tradition and modern commercialism with a mash up of harvest festival pagan celebration and christmas. Holy day for the dead. The only thing we need to do now to really take the holiday to the next level is get rid of candy. Corn executive producer of everything everywhere. Daily is james makhala.

"Wells. No. No. The driveways were too long. It was exhausting. My mom always thought that Halloween had become too americanised. So we were never allowed to do it. She disproved of American things because she mistrusted American cultural imperialism for in all ways. But we did discover when we were about 13 that the American embassy, which was in the suburb adjacent to ours would give out Halloween candy on Halloween, even before it became trendy with the rise of social media and people being able to be jealous of people in other countries. So you could go to the American embassy and get American sweets. But we would have to pretend that we weren't doing that because mom disapproved of Halloween. So it was like it was like people going out and then pulling their skirts shorter before getting to school, but we would go out and then slightly spook ourselves up. To trick or treat? The meaning of fear. This one house, just the one house, the American embassy, which would give you American sweets. Did you have a was there a minimum amount of effort into the costume that you had to make to get the sweets? No, absolutely not. They were Americans. I assume we all looked scary to them. I've come as an Australian child in springtime. We would come as twins, which we were. But not necessarily twins. Which we also were. As funny, isn't it? Not identical twins a lot less spooky. A lot less spooky. Much less spooky. What we would do is instead of speaking in unison, we would finish one another sentences, which is like speaking in unison, but no. Come play. With us forever and ever, it's more of an improv game, isn't it? That's not going to happen. And now it's time for our tech section. Helen's ultimate tell us about this camera hack news. This is from December 2019. Yeah, I mean, this is kind of a brilliant prank, but also really horrible one. A hacker took over the webcam of an 8 year old girl and told her that she was Santa is not even a webcam, I think it's like the families like spy cam on their daughter. And you can hack into those. And he told her that he's her best friend, so very sad to be a gaslight in this way. He's going to give her trust issues later, which is the true horror. And he told her to smash up her room. I don't know that she did, like, but I suppose if there's the threat from Santa, you probably would, wouldn't you? Yeah, so Santa turns up says don't you want to be my best friend and by the way, smash up your room? Yeah, what we found out she's a bad kid because she didn't do it. No presence for her from hacker Santa. Well John Luke, does this make you mistrust baby monitors? Or does it make you mistrust Santa, or does it make you mistrust little girls? Yes. Yes, two or three. Well, baby monitors. I'm fine with baby monsters, what is one thing high-tech baby monitors? That's probably where the trouble is. I mean, putting in a seat. And then and then the company who made them said, oh no, there's no security issue here. It seems a bit like Les a security issue there. I was more thinking about who was because they still don't know who did it..

I suppose a cold or a prop gun Ended up firing it. And killing the cinematographer helena hutchins and injuring one. Other person onset as well. So i mean just ridiculous tragedy. I can't even imagine. But god just like. How did this even happen. Crazy when i first saw it and in some of the the photos of alec baldwin immediately in the aftermath Which i felt so uncomfortable even looking at But i i was reading about it today. 'cause more updates keep coming like every few hours it seems there's something new and it was saying that he had been practicing drying his gun and he'd been practicing. What like a cross body draw where you You drop from your whole in cross to the other side and and he was a practicing and and the gun went off and he had no idea That that it was loaded because i shouldn't have been right But what's crazy is hearing about. All of the other stuff that had happened leading up to this like there were two accidental discharges reported in the days before leaving this. Yeah and several reports of crew members. Doing something called plinking where you go out. And you shoot live rounds at your cans and stuff with i heard maybe even the gun he shot right been used as one of those that they were actually was loaded at some point with live ammunition right and i think the bullet hit the cinematographer because they were working on sort of like a. The shot was directed to the camera. Why is that. that's what i read. Today is because initially it was like why would he even be pointing in her direction. But i think she must have been behind the camera and he was practicing that draw that you said and ended up firing in that direction. But i mean why was the gun. Was the gun even loaded with a bullet. I mean i know. Blinks can kill people to i mean. People don't know that but like blanks can actually. They have projectiles that. Come out of the gun. Even if it's a quote blink. According to everything. I've read it was. It was live ammunition you know to answer your question about. How could this even happened. I the the articles drina today was talking about. How the armourer..

Jamie lee curtis killer. Mrs halloween and he is angry that his you look like a surfer dude. Who got bit by a shark and your ended up in the hospital. Put the side-by-side hold on the side by side. Because i look like laurie strode crushing on the ground. You got the gown. The favors laurie strode. Well that's what she's wearing this movie in this movie. Your right spoilers. yes lord. Michael myers mr mrs halloween. Everyone knows what we're doing is who they are costume works on two fronts. Because it was michael buyers take off the mask. I'm just the mechanic he's still the costume from. And it's good all around everyone's favorite character from the first from the second from how old man this is going to be hard because it's not the first halloween named louis twenty eight. Okay so guys. Wow we will get through the hollow. Tell me how you are. What's been going. have you tried anything new. I am doing fantastic. I am trying actively. I am trying new things. I saw jagged little pill this week the musical franck. Nothing of atlanta's morris. It was a lot heavier than i thought it was going to be. As heavy isn't it. It was pretty good. I am suprised how much i enjoyed it. And there was a standing ovation in the middle of it. It was also ever see. It was like warranted. definitely light. yes. Yes yes i was like. I need to get up on my feet. If no one else does. Everyone else was starting to get up on the feet and i was like great. Let's see yeah just. does everything. The story the caliber talent being back at a theater. That was a pirate one hundred percent. Apparently someone my other coworkers saw a show before and that same exact moment got a standing ovation also beforehand before before. It was just hype to be back in the theater. That the sentence or two of what that shows about. Because all i know is the linas morissette. Typical family is is who seems finally outside is going through a lot of shit on the inside that's basically last underneath the purpose. Well how funny that. You're that you try. This week was going to a show. Because the thing that i try this week for new i also went to the show i went to. I took my girlfriend to see john legend in concert. My first real big boy. Big old concert. I've ever gone to. We saw how wow you. Things are song we love him. It was the first album we ever sent each other while she said me at it know anything about new jack shit about. John says she indoctrinated me. It was so cool. It was so intimate. Oh so nice. You put on fucking fantastic show. That's all there was. Some songs was dancing around. Somewhere super intimate. We sat down at the piano. Some there's a whole point in the middle ages like talk to us about his life about everything going on he show that's interesting. It was really real. Yeah this this whole interlude. At the beginning we were just twiddling on the piano. Saying like this is how. I started this whereas come from these. Where my big shots. This is how i am today. And he would like interlude the songs that he like covered coming off for like the black. Ip's before he made it. It was really. That's dude it is nice to see you. Welcome to the chat. Yeah no that's exciting. Okay but nick we have. We care for business. It's like ten minutes of the episode. We got businesses quick. We need to go quick. Because there's there's i feel like i feel like there's nothing to say about this movie but i have a lot to say i am on the same exact wavelength i am. I am always excited. When i go into an episode with you and i'm like what did nick think about this fucking movie. I feel like i'm always wildcard. I thought about this over anywhere on the same page. But there's a huge chance that we're not and then we're gonna mightily because the critics right now are like like people are like split. I don't have any review. So i don't know what people are saying but all i know is i've read. The title of a like people are split on hold. We'll see where split as we talk about. How we nick. We normally ask each other why we gave halloween. And i think we can give my hair this entire. You're so much. Why don't i go ahead. And explain the fucking etymology of this damn movie. So in nineteen seventy eight. Halloween came out the first halloween starring Talk about it was about a kid who murdered. His sister went to an insane asylum. Sorry msl 'institution and then came back to his city block and killed everybody there on halloween. Right that's the first movie. Jamie lee curtis was a she was a babysitter. She was a baby sitter And she was the classic tip archetypal survivor girl. I wonder if she was like the first the prototypical. That's the word she may. She's just one of the earlier ones. Because this was in nineteen seventy nine. The first one came out or something like that. Seventy eight so it was one of the first movies like this and then a bunch of slasher films were made afterwards and some key beforehand but i think.

We'll move onto the complaint and take my headphones off. Now i do that. I go so far away i know. And we're gonna go away for we're going to go ahead and go to our first impressions international reactions of said film Since i broke. Everyone's ears hubba corey goes i. Yes i love. John carpenter and the Macree here in front of me watching at home he toy And the the first film is up there. With like the i i i i first film is up there. This atmospheric Horror slashers of all time. Not a huge freddy kruger fan. Not a big jason were. He's fan But man john carpenter to me when it comes to horror can do no wrong Having said that This this film. I feel like is even in some ways more of a spiritual successor than even the two thousand eighteen film was. I enjoyed Aspects of this film more. So than i did with the previous the two thousand eighteen halloween I did have some parts. That i felt were a little heavy handed within it So i wouldn't say it's my favorite by any means But overall I really enjoyed my time watching this film. I enjoyed the creativity behind a lot of the kills. That will get into And i enjoyed seeing. What might be the bloodiest halloween we've ever seen. You mean go spoils. I really liked the twenty eighteen film. And i liked it for its expansion of the universe and be a little bit more focus on the story whereas this one was much more focused on the horror part of the film In terms of the the slasher bits I did not enjoy this one I picked right. I really really liked the twenty eighteen so going into this. I was like. I was really excited for this. One and Walked away a little disappointed. i don't wanna go into spoilers and all that kind of stuff but i mean it was it was a there are some things that i really really liked about it. I will say that There are some things that i was like. Oh that's fun like how they did that But yeah that's that's my initial. So i hate the fact that a sequel to a movie is at same name. I hate about halloween. Sequel is gone hollow. Yeah i hate it over the thing or seagoing called the things going into prequel or like candyman candyman stop. Just stop. it's a reboot or it's not just call it. Hala weaned revived or halloween comes back returns. Something i'm just like 'cause now we have to do this then..
