An End to the Tech Rally?
"We'll rising rates kill the tech rally. Guy what do you say yes back to. You melt absolutely so much of this has been predicated on on this low interest rate zero straight environment when you have tenure yields go from fifty three basis points in august two one point four percent today i understand rates are still low but the velocity and the speed of the move has been well. It hasn't been historic. But it's been noteworthy. And i think we're headed to one and a half. We've said it for a while and that's your line in the sand you start getting significantly north of one and a half percent and the entire thesis in my opinion behind a lot of these high flying tech names starts unravel and you're starting to see it now in the big hans christian andersen fan. I know euros well. Mel and a lot of people mistakenly call the that little vignette that he wrote. The emperor has no clothes. It's the emperor's new clothes. But i got to tell you the close at the fed is wearing right now are not fitting and i think they're going to be revealed for what they are in the coming weeks. They think they can control this out of their control at this point. Yeah karen i. I'll go to you on this. Well i mean obviously we have been in this environment of close zero percent insurance for so long and so when we move out of that. Something's gotta give now. Yes i think. So but i think a few things are happening at the same time. So there's the higher rates that guy talked about. We always talk about the risk premium. What should the equity risk premium beaten as rates go up. The risk premium should be higher therefore valuations lower. But the other side of. It is a rates going up because the economy is improving. And i believe that. Yes that's the case. But i also think that the earnings of a lot of these high flyers and let's talk about something like google for example. I think those earnings are going to be actually much better so on long those. It's a painful day. One thing that. I have on as a hedge which is not nearly enough to hedge how much i would lose him. A day like today is the gb which is the it's tech software and its high fliers. The biggest position is microsoft. But it's really expensive. Names salesforce service now zoom video. Docu sign crowd strike. Those are all going to get hit. Against what i think of as my more value tech today wasn't value at all on sale again and again but i think that if the rates move up slowly because the economy improves. I'm okay with that. I know we'll have a rotation into more cyclicals. But i'm sticking with what i've got. Yeah and obviously it's highest wires on. They'll probably take the hardest hits at this point carfax. North cornerstone macro makes a very good point in that is their alliance the s. and hunt five hundred on information technology. More broadly and in terms of down days and information technology eighty percent of the time the s. and p. five hundred trades lower as well. This is since nineteen eighty nine. Dan and i know you like carter's work. So i mean his point basically is you can't hire overall without technology that being said though if you look at the mag accomplish the microsoft apple google amazon. They've gone sideways for the last four months. Or so as we've seen that rotation into more cyclical names so we did move higher without their real participation and now it's interesting on a day like today that you see the nasdaq down two and a half percent or so to me. I think what karen laid out is really smart. I mean you look at the mega caps and you see their value tech yes. They benefited from low. Interest rates. For a whole host of reasons most notably. They raised a ton of money and they put on their balance sheet and they really not paying a whole heck of a lot and i think as it relates to interest rates. You have to ask yourself who really wants. Interest rates to go higher at this point and guy makes a good point that yeah they're going to they're going because the economy is getting a little better. Look at the ten year chart of the us treasury. You'll we thought we had generational lows at about one and a half percent back in two thousand twelve then again in two thousand sixteen then again in two thousand and thousand nine hundred then you consider yourself or you consider how much negative yielding sovereign debt. There is in the world about fifteen trillion and you think about the corporate been john debt and even consumers you yourself who wants rates to go higher then you look at it over a thirty year period and i think we have that chart and it's just upper left to bottom right so maybe you get through that one and a half on the ten year treasury. Maybe you get to that long-term downtrend which would be about two and a quarter. If that is the case then yes equities. You're going to have a very hard time in this environment. Given the state of deficits right

Hit the Disney film long-held the crown as the highest grossing animated movie worldwide frozen was written and Co directed by Jennifer Lee who has since been named Walt Disney animation studios chief creative officer the first woman to hold such a position during the making making of frozen to. NPR's Elizabeth Blair sent some time. Spent some time with her in frozen to water. Air Fire and earth are important to the story so he's the wind in the movie the characters call her gail sometimes. She's he's playful and sometimes she's angry. We played a little louder in a windowless room at the Disney animation studios in Burbank. Supervising sound editor Odin.

That tree tree limb away from Ana. That's gale goes your the magic and Gail starts to go around Elsa and then spits the others out. This kind of collaboration goes on on for just about every aspect of an animated Disney movie says Jennifer Lea and you go shot by shot moment by moment frame by frame and discuss everything everything from the emotion to the effects to the camera. The first frozen was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale the snow queen one of the heroines. Elsa has magical powers she can make ice and snow in a split second for inspiration for the new movie Lee and a team from Disney traveled to Norway Finland and Iceland wasted on a glacier for the first time really hit us. What would elsa feel standing here? The glacier it's a thousand feet deep is thousand years old it's of nature completely and something she would probably be so connected to and we realized is sort of the mythic round her power.

Hey, rain stuff. Lauren Bogle bomb here. You know, when you wake up in the morning, and you have all that crusty stuff in your eyes that's called room. And it's just the remnants of liquid coating that protects your is that you blink away when you're awake. But that collects end dries when you sleep, but if you were a child living in central or northern Europe, a couple of centuries ago grownups would have probably told you that when you woke up in the morning with crusty eyelashes, it was because the Sandman had been to your bedside sprinkling his magical sleepy Dustin, your is spinning the yarns of your dreams, this might have caused you some alarm because the figure of the Sandman isn't all magical benevolent snooze dust. It turns out as much as the Sandman is to sleep as Santa is to gift-giving San man's shadow side is at least as conspicuous as Santa's penchant for shady around the clock surveillance and distribution of switches and coal to naughty kids. We spoke about how the Sanmen myths got their start with Dr Maria. Tatar a professor of German studies folklore and children's literature at Harvard University. She said it's a bit difficult to trace his origins because stories about the Sandman are part of an oral tradition. I feel confident that there are similar figures and other cultures because so many of the jolly child-friendly creatures are shadowed by disciplinary evil person who invented the Sandman who knows the man's first Paret onto the page was an eighteenth century German dictionaries, which briefly described the German idiom zap man, kommt Sandman is coming which was used to tease children who were particularly sleepy. Looking. The first story about Sandman and his doings was published in eighteen eighteen by German writer, E T, a Huffman descent men begins with an exasperated nurse telling a story about a mythical creature who throws sand in the eyes of little children who won't go to sleep causing. There is to fall out of their sockets Sanmen. Then collects the eyeballs and a sack and carries them to his home on the dark side of the moon where he feeds them. Mm to his children to tar said present men became an important story in psychoanalytic circles because Freud made so much of it in his essay, the uncanny often story is a fairy tale for grownups really his Sandman is this dark predatory monster. It definitely wasn't written for children, but keep in mind. Many of the things we consider kids stories today. Snow White sleeping beauty were originally told by and to adults though, of course, not all fairy were for grownups in eighteen forty one Hans Christian Andersen. Published a fairytale meant for a young audience called all loci ole being a Danish first name and loci translating to shut your I the pomace character always dressed in silk pyjamas and carrying a colorful umbrella is never referred to by Anderson as the San man, but the man is the title most English translations assigned to the fairytale ole doesn't throw sand into children's is. He squirts milk into them. The story is a sequence of dream. Like Tableau and ole seems to be a benevolent figure in them. But he does introduce the main character a young boy to concepts of sexuality and death. And at the end of the story, the boy discovers that old loci has a brother who instead of coming night after night tour bedsides begin dreams only visits each person wants bringing death. His name is also all loci Tatar said what's interesting about the Sandman stories is they remind me a bit of the children's versus and lullabies. We seem to children which are soothing in gentle. But there's a stark violent side to them to somehow it seems to meet her are bits towards children. We adore them. And want to tell them gentle lovely stories, but they drive us crazy at times we and especially our ancestors resorted to cautionary and disciplinary tales like little red riding hood in which the wolf will eat you up. If you stray from the path in the Hoffman story, if you don't go to sleep the sand man's going to come and scratch out your eyes, and if strong arming children in to set. Alling down to sleep is not why the European parents have nurses of old told cautionary bedtime stories. Maybe it's because they wanted to prepare their little ones for life's hardships to tar said the unusual thing about the Sandman is he's a lot bigger than you. Are there's no defeating him. You can't face him down. Like, you can the villains fairy tales, there's no happily ever after except falling asleep giving in he can't be beheaded are trapped or tricked like other villains. It's hard to distinguish fairy tale myth legend and all of that. But in a way, he belongs more to the realm of myth and very towns.

"So one of the things that struck me watching the film is it does that thing. And so we've done a couple of shows where we talk about books with anthropomorphized animals, and one of the things that's always fun about that is like where does the author draw the line of consciousness right who who gets to speak in this kingdom? So like in the movie king TRITON has like dolphins as steeds to carry them around. Never see a dolphin talk. We see a crab talk. We see a flounder talk. Dolphins say nothing. There's a part where they go into a scary dead boat and a shark chases them sharks. Don't talk sharks. Despite maybe they didn't try to talk to the shirt. Well, he's too scary. Ills talk, though, right jets, this creepy eels named flotsam and jetsam. Just don't know. It's certainly like narrative expedients to like, oh, well, this colorful character gets to talk. This bright red crab gets to talk. Do they eat plants or do they eat? Other fish under the sea. It's not clear at one point. So I did make a list of a bunch of things that king TRITON says that are pretty dope. And at one point he derisively refers to humans as fish eaters. So it is my understanding that everyone under the ocean is just eating kelp or no that's a living thing. That's what is kelp kelp is a plant is a plant. Okay. They eat kelp all the time. Thank you other cool things that can TRITON says he's getting mad at aerial. And he says as long as you live under my ocean. You're going to do what I say is king Triton's jurisdiction because the whole ocean is pretty big. Yeah. He's apparently in charge of the whole at one point. He's getting mad at aerial. And he says, I consider myself a reasonable Merman. But I just can't take this any longer. And he's he just brakes stuff. She's like got that statue. And rather than talk to her about why she's in love with the human. He just blows it up. He's this kind of like sad single data. I really feel for him. He doesn't know how to relate his daughter. The movie is is interesting because it's it's the start of a run of films in the nineties the of the resurgence of animation at Disney, but the story treatment that they that they did the the adaptation of Anderson's original tale goes back to the thirties. So like after Snow White and the seven dwarfs came out. They had intended to do a movie that was just run of adaptations of Hans Christian Andersen. Fairy tales, and it never ended up happening for reasons. I could not figure alyssum Alano hadn't been born yet. So they didn't know who to model aerial after is probably the reason. What? Margaret has interrupted our podcast. Shout outs to Margaret. That's kind of do you want talk about mermaids real quick. I made what you do. You have mermaid facts were made. Yes. Tell me about. So let you know if they are supported or contradicted by things in the book, and okay. Whether or not Hans Christian Andersen knew about it. We have mermaid related midst going back to like ancient Babylonia. There's a God who was a precursor to Poseidon though. Like, you're you're early king TRITON use a Merman though. So he doesn't count the one of the earliest mermaids we have is at a guards at Arctic. Targets a Syrian goddess whose name I don't know how to pronounce who dove into a lake to become a fish because she was sad for. I think having killed her boyfriend, but only part of her changed, and she became a member of the mermaid could have killed the prince and become fish worked out. Plenty the elder wrote about seems that are basically mermaids, but they're scared. They're scaly all over even though even on their human parts share their scaly. I think I've seen like adaptations of mermaids like that including I think in Harry Potter them, are they're much creepy and scary all over we get some more.

What she would do what off brand Henry story is this where you cut off all your hair and then sell it for a knife. Oh, I know. I I traded my like chopping block for a knife. Sheath? What is that weird gift of the magpie? The mermaid sorta. So she's in issue into it. She can't bring herself to do it. She loves the prince too much wedding. Yeah. She lifts the bride's train what she's in the era like rom com. Did we miss where they could've used this? There's a miss Catholic. There's definitely a Sandra Bullock, film that could have been a dappled from this. So she's at the wedding. She has a nice, but she doesn't use it. Yes. Okay. Then what she's just going to become seafoam again? Okay. So what what ends up happening. We're on track for a very bad ending to the story. Yes, she cast one more lingering half fainting glance at the prince, and then threw herself from the ship into the sea and thought her body was dissolving into foam. But then what happens? She turns into some kind of like angel person. A daughter of the sky daughter of the air is what she turns into. Okay. It says he's she says a mermaid has not an immortal soul, nor can she obtain one unless you wins the love of human being on the power of another hangs her attornal destiny but the daughters of the air, although they do not possess an immortal soul can buy their good deeds. Procure one for themselves. So basically the little mermaid has been so good, and so pure, and she wanted to Seoul, so bad and she did so many good deeds like not killing the prince good job and listening to him while he told her about the see that's a good deed. Yes. Just humoring him is probably a good he'd. Yeah. She gets a chance to become a daughter of the air and eventually through more good deeds. Get her own soul who made this call. I don't know. I don't know who has the authority to decide who will be daughter of the air the same God that was going to recognize their land ocean wedding. She like try. She's not still is she still at treated as a as a coherent character. At this point. She is transformed from a little mermaid into spirit or is she like one with the wind in the sky now. So she's she in the all the colors in the image in the illustration in the book. She definitely does this kind of look like an angel with a light rap on. It's cold out there in the win little weird butterfly wings. Hey..

"Mermaid, you just die. And because you don't have a soul, then you're dead forever. That's like if you try to get like a house, and if they reject your Bank loan, they destroy your your house that you're in right now like you're trying to improve your situation, but if you fail they also take away what you have only. Do you not get your home loan, but you don't live in your apartment anymore? God the Bank of sea, witches sucks. So and and the which tells the little mermaid that she will have to capture the prince's heart with her beautiful form, your graceful walk, and you're expressive is surly with these you can Enchaine a man's heart. So sores in by dude checks out. There's a very good. There's another very good dude part later where the prince and the mermaid our on a boat, and he's telling her about how great the sea is. Then he told her of storm of calm of strange fishes in the deep beneath them of what the divers scene there and she smiled at his descriptions for she knew better than anyone what wonders where at the bottom of the sea classic prince planing. Literally can't talk back to that sucks. So the which takes her tongue like cuts it out. It's not even thing where you get like your voices. A glowing ball that gets stored in the seashell, whatever it is. That's the song. So could she like attempt to make noise, and it would just be rough. I Don I don't say it's not. And also she can't right? Apparently that it feels like the greatest weakness in the little mermaid story as well. If you can't talk. I guess there's just no way to communicate with anybody. That's really frustrating. And it's weird. Because in the movie, I don't think that they have books. There are books in her like underwater trinket cave. But no one is ever really like they do have a magical contract that she signs to give voice away. Right. Sebastian is a successful symphony composer. And he can write music that she was supposed to sing. But. Yeah, there's no like what if I could just right out to you. Hey, I'm a mermaid. But I have legs today. Would you like to marry me? Yes. Or no, check wine. I like, you you like me. Fleas check. So it becomes clear pretty quickly that things are not going great for the mermaid as the days pass. She loved the prince more fondly and he loved her as he would love a little child, but it never came into his head to make her his wife if I were forced to choose a bride. I would rather choose you my dumb foundling with those expressive is he says at one point. But it's obvious that impart because she can't talk I think it's a bone. He kind of infantilized as her a little bit. And does not see her as a viable like love Pacino. Yeah. I that's a phrase coined. Yeah. Viable love in my voiding, vows. I don't know. What? So is one of the sticking points in the film is that she saved his life. And he doesn't believe that this girl is her because he can't hear her magic voice. Is there any there's no nod to the to the prince recognizing her now that she's been transformed in this. He says that he had a dream. Okay. And that he barely remembers. And she vaguely reminds him of somebody. But who he's really in love with is a woman who he met at the little chapel that she dropped him off at who he credits with saving her. Okay. Okay. And she turns out to be the Princess of some other kingdom, which is just works out. Great for him. She taking credit for this rescue that. She didn't do. Nursing back to hell. They're going to get married. Yes. And then they do. Oh, that's it. Yeah. Hello. Let's get married. So okay. After this happens all of the mermaid sisters come up out of the sea and all their hair's been cut off. And they said, hey, little mermaid we traded all of our hair for this knife. And if you kill the prince and let his blood drip on you. You'll become a mermaid again, and you can come back..

"But like the green seaweed once it has been cut off. We can never flourish more does that mean every time a wave crashes on me. It's Denver except mermaids. That's awful. And they do they not have like a museum to Berman's that used to exist. Like do. They just forget mermaids after they die. I don't. I'm not sure. Yes. So she's like freaked out by that she doesn't. But, but so there is a way firmer may to get an immortal soul. Okay. You know, what it is is a complicated. Not really. Okay. Well, it's complicated for the mermaid. So what you gotta do. Is. You got to make a human fall in love with you. And Mary you because it's very important but God recognize your union. Yes, that's true. And so part of his soul slip into you. He's still keep his soul heart of his soul can slip into you. You the mermaid? And then you go good after that. But you just have part of his soul. It's fine century things were different. That's fine. So how she going to do this? She has a man in mind, which she does the prince what needs to do. She's no she needs to get up there. She needs to make him fall in love with her and she'd get the soul forever. Okay. So let's you does she goes. And finds the sea witch who also doesn't have a name. She's just the see wit. Okay. No one down. Here has names the sea witch lives in a very remote part of the sea in the midst of the spot. So the house built with the bones of shipwrecked human beings law. They're set the sea witch allowing a towed to eat from her mouth just as people sometimes feed a canary with a piece of sugar does that actually happen. Has anyone ever fed their canary by shoving sugar in their mouth and go. She called the ugly. Water snakes little chickens and allowed them to crawl all over her bosom. So this all tracks with the Disney movie, except for the part where she lives in a house made of human bones is pretty creepy. Is there anything analogous to the creepiest part of the movie for me are those like shrunken, Murph oke polyp things that are just these little sock puppet. People that are like stuck to the ground. Right. Is there anything like is? She stealing soul is doing which just kind of seems like she wants to jank. Everybody's chain. Okay. More low-key figure as she lives in a very creepy part of the ocean. So there's a lot of seaweed that can grab onto you. So as aerials not area as the little mermaid swims to the house. She sees the bones of all kinds of other creatures, including the bones of a mermaid and just didn't make it. What does that look like? A mermaid skeleton fiscal on the bottom person skeleton on the that's more terrifying than I could have imagined. This is like zoos the bad part of town with that part of town. You don't go over there. But the the C which tells her if you give me your voice than I will give you legs. Now, there is going to be a catch when you get the legs. It's gonna feel like a sword is cutting through your body. And then you're going to dance really great. But it's going to hurt really bad. It's going to feel like you're walking on knives. And like your feet should be bleeding for the entire time that you are person. I mean, that's sometimes when my legs asleep. That's what it feels like when I stand it's much worse than so, wait. But they have have they set up in the story that she has a particularly good voice yet. It's mentioned they have the they have the thing about the mermaid voices that I read before. And then once she gets the C, which is house it's made clear her voices, particularly even better. And then the other catch is if. The prince Mary somebody else then the day after their wedding, you turn into seafoam, and you're just dead forever. It's not a thing where you turn back into a mermaid and you get to be a sad..

"If you were all get it Hartman, I'll get carbon. So she isn't fat does she she doesn't know this human. It's just owners stone, man. That's just the hands a statue of a handsome, man. Yes. Okay. Who represents her desire to be part of their world. Yeah. Oh, I forgot to read something earlier about how deep the sea was so deep indeed that no cable could fathom it many church steeples piled one upon another would not reach from the ground beneath the surface of the water. So this is written back in time where like turt- CPA would just be a common unit of measurement have miles or kilometers. Just had church. Steeples? I'm going to start measuring things by height by banks. It's ten banks tall ten banks below chase Bank branches tell us. So the time finally comes for the little mermaid to go up to the surface. So she does because up there. Yes. And she sees a boat on which people are having what looks like a pretty cool party. And she goes, and she's kind of looks at them and sees them having fun. And then they she sees a very handsome man who turns out to be a prince. And the boat sales off into a storm. The storm breaks ship, and it looks like everybody's gonna die. So far. I'm dislike. Yep. I know that part of the story. There's another. There's a strange passage here on the mermaids voices. Because that's that's going to be a thing later. Sure. Sure, they had more beautiful than any human being could have and before the approach of a storm. And when they expected ship would be lost. They swam before the vessel and saying sweetly of the delights to be found in the depths of the sea and begging the sailors not to fear if they sank to the bottom, but the sailors could not understand the song. They took it for the howling of the storm. And these things were never to be beautiful for them for if the ship sank the men were drowned and they're dead bodies alone reach the palace of the king. So there's two very different perspectives. Right maids like, hey, come in. It's great. That's like a men or from boats women are from the ocean scenario like they can't cross that communication divide. We're oh so beautiful down here. No, I'm going to die down there. Do they have gills the mermaids? I don't they don't really talk. They just have human tops and fish tails. It's the only thing to know about them. Sure. That's weird. Weird. Are they trying to kill the man known? They aren't they really do think that under the great. And that the men will have a good time. But the seaweed is always greener. Yeah. That's that is definitely true. So she sees the prince go underwater because the ship sinks. She's whims over she saves him. Okay. And she brings up up on the shore. And she's like, wow, this beautiful handsome prince. He will never know who I am. But I'm really glad that I saved them cool. Yeah. Do good things for people. Yeah. So what you do. So she goes back under the sea. And every once in a while she gets up, and she goes and checks by the little chapel that she left the prince at CV still there if she can catch a glimpse of him. She doesn't okay. And she gets sad about it. She's very sad. She doesn't tend her little undersea garden anymore. Her yearning for the surface is all consuming. So this is not an it's this is not common like other. Her other sisters did not go up. Save a guy. Find him boring and then come back. This is not normal for Murphy race. Okay. Sure. And so she's she's asking your old grandmother. Like is there can I go up to the services that are anything. I can do her grandmother tells her. So here's we get a little bit about how mermaids works. So can live off question mermaids can live for up to three hundred years up to good. But they don't have souls darn. So she says when we see swigs here, we only become the foam on the surface of the water, and we have not even a grave down here of those. We love we have not immortal souls. We shall never live again..

At the end of the movie, she turns back into a mermaid Ursula turns into a Godzilla monster and the prince stabs her with a boat, and then she dies and all of her magic is dispelled. And then Ariel tells her dad that she loves us human, and he's like I've had get it. But I accept high will use my magic to make you human, and then you can live as a part of their world for the rest of your life. As pretty wild that king Triton's, okay with that. But so how is it different? Okay. So in the in the story under the sea lives, the Sea King, who's a widower and king TRITON. I guess we never really hear about his. Yeah. There's no mom areas, which sucks because in the movie king TRITON dislike solve problems by pointing his tried net. And and stuff. So would that we could all solve our problems with the magic tried. And so the king his old mom and his six daughters all live at the bottom of the sea. The youngest of the six is the little mermaid she's not named in this book. Okay. Nancy? We're not gonna call her name. But it so in this world when mermaids turned fifteen they can go up to the surface. Like a like a coming out like ruin spring for mermaids. Yeah. So the little mermaid watches as her five older sisters year-by-year go up to the surface and comeback with tales of the incredible things that they saw also bone back with their own tales Zimmerman's behind. Thanks. And they all eventually can alot lose their attraction to the surface where it's up there. But they don't wanna go up there. All the time. It's not a great place. The little mermaid is is different. She's very into the service. So she I'm gonna just read a quote from the book explaining her deal. She was a strange child, quiet and thoughtful. And while her sister's would be delighted with the wonderful things that they obtained from the wrecks of vessels. She cared for nothing. But her pretty red flowers like the sun accepting a beautiful marble statue. It was the representation of a handsome boy, carved out a pure Whitestone which had fallen to the bottom of the sea from wreck. So like in the movie, she does have a statue of Boyd is kind of a symbol of her fascination with the surface world thing for me. That was surprising watching the movie and then doing a little prep for the show was how much was in the movie, maybe not in a direct plot way. But just like, oh, here's they give prince Eric a statue of. For his birthday on a boat. My birthday is later this week..

"Like magic pot and a magic rattle because she doesn't want his like esoteric gifts like a rose that makes you feel happy or a Nightingale that can sing whatever song you want love rose that would make me feel happy Nightingale. They could sing any song one is to Spotify. So I have that. And his second four the rattle. He wants one hundred kisses and on the eighty six in the pigsty, she gets caught kissing a dirty swineherd her father kicks her out. He reveals himself as a prince and she's like, oh, great. Can we be together? And he's like, no, you're too materialistic and of story. Cool the morals in these stories are very there's another one about the called the elfin hill, which is about some goblins choosing. An elf King Jr. Daughter for a bride picked this one because it draws on a Danish superstition excuse me, Dana superstition called the grave horse event, which is this horse. That would go around your town at night and would like wander around the houses of someone who is about to die. It comes from a superstition that under every Danish Church a horse was buried alive. Why do they grow from horses? I don't maybe it's like heap other demons away. Okay. I'm not sure I'm gonna let's go going on up in Denmark, any other stories in those are the ones that I pulled are there any you wanna talk just like a quick personal note about him. So a lot of stories have to do with feeling strange and just not a part of the world that you're in and on a personal note. He according to his own journals was celebrate throughout much of his life. But in his correspondence he pine for and pursued both women and men. So he's commonly considered today to be bisexual, which is something that even people today. I think have trouble like being visible. That's true. Yeah. It was interesting relationship to Denmark about it because it was a very private thing. We know about this because of his diaries and his letters that have become increasingly published, but in one letter to a friend he wrote I wish. My eyes may never again, see the home, which can only see my shortcomings, the Danes can be evil cold satanic of people well-suited to those damp, moldy green islands. It's everybody who's ever moved out of their parents. It's just every Springsteen song. I think. Right. So that's that's interesting because he's become this national hero for Danish writing. And to the story is always more complicated than that. Right..

"But what's interesting about Anderson is that he was mostly writing his own stuff? Yeah. He was inspired by other stories and other myths, but yeah, it was mostly original works that nobody had done before. So his first volume of fairy tales, which is titled fairy tales told for children, I collection. Was published across three volumes between eighteen thirty five and eighteen thirty seven and among others. It included thumb Bellina, the Princess and the pea the emperor's new clothes and the little mermaid it was not very well reviewed at the time because books for children we're supposed to be educational and not entertaining. Just changed changed in two hundred years. But but yeah, he eventually found more success and published fairy tales from eighteen thirty eight all the way up to eighteen seventy two years before he died. Yeah. Is there anything about his life that we should make sure we cover? I dunno you, tell me. Yeah. So as we said, he's eight to no five his parents were pretty poor his father died when he was eleven. I think is mother ended up remarrying, but he did talk a lot and he is kind of in his own lifetime. Tried to. Take control of his autobiography and kind of him rising through the through the rankings of, you know, having trouble in school. He is we think he may have suffered or dealt with dyslexia or had another sort of learning difficulty which caused him to have a lot about hard times in school even gave a hard time. Yeah. And it may have led to his style of writing as well, which is pretty, you know, work having a hard time developing those skills in school, and then changing it to accommodate he did get into school as a teenager because the director of the Royal theatre secured a grant from the king of Denmark to get him into school, which is dope. How do they give out every year the king scholarships? They probably just gave out the one and then stop to be perfectly honest. And one of his first stories that we didn't find until twenty twelve he actually wrote while he was still in school. It was called the tallow candle about a candle that felt unappreciated. Big mood handle. And that kind of plays into a lot of the themes that crop up Anderson's work of these characters who just don't feel like they fit in the ugly duckling and whatnot. He just didn't. I think that's all kind of drawing on on personal experience. I made a couple of notes of some other stories I found interesting to hear them Anders. Sure. Yeah. Go for it. So the first is the steadfast tin soldier, which some of you may remember from the hit film Fantasia two thousand. It's about a one legged tin soldier like think like the nutcracker who's the only one of his brothers. Who is different? Okay. Hans Christian Andersen. He's in love with a ballerina because he thinks that she only has one leg, but she's just doing ballet like she's like a doll abou- arena who among us not gone to a ballet and Ben confused. And then there's a troll or a goblin or something that's dressed as a Jack in the box. That is jealous of this. Tin soldier in so knocks him out a window. And then he goes on like some Toy Story adventures. And finally when he comes home his kid instead of being happy to have him. Back. Tosses him in the fire. Wow. As like harsh for being gone or something. Then you don't you still you still have a toy after that seems like a but this Mel Galatian, but he melted into the shape of a heart. Andrew, that's convenient. Yeah. It seems unlikely there's another there's another one called the swineherd which is about a prince who disguises himself as a dirty swineherd and pranks a materialistic Princess by demanding kisses in return for gifts..

And hopefully, you find them funny. We were certainly find them funny. Andrew anything else about the show that folks should know we are overdue podcast dot com. If you want to find out more if you don't like what we're doing right now. And you want to listen to a different episode while we're speaking you can just fire up that on your phone, I suppose, Andrew so the way that this works one of us reads a story or a book or novel, and then we've never we've never had before. Yes. And then over the course of an episode talks to it talks about it to the other host. And so we're going to do a little background on the author of this of this week's of today's story. And then we're going to dive into the story itself. So Andrew you read the book for this live show didn't facs. What did you read? I read a fairytale called the little mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. Maybe you've heard of it any fans. Little mermaid out there. I set up like a hand raising thing. And then nobody made me noise. I apologize. So I've never read this story. You had never read this read it. My little sister loves the movie when we were kids. And so I watched it a lot of times great. I've never read the book before I walk. I re washed the movie last Wednesday very specific that it's a Wednesday apparently in my brain. And so I will be able to recall a few things as necessary. But this is a pretty different story. Yes. Yes. Like many fairy tales it is much grimmer than the Disney movie that came out of it. So to talk a little bit about Hans Christian Andersen. I here's a Danish author. He was born in eighteen five died in eighteen seventy five and he wrote plays novels poems and travelogues, but he's best known for is the over three thousand fairy tales that he wrote and just statistically if you write that many fairy tales some of them are bound to become classics. I think yeah. Monkeys at typewriters and whatnot. He so you said he was born eighteen five sim about seven years before the first grim collection, which was published in eighteen twelve and ten years before the second one. So he's coming into this. He started really getting hot and heavy into fairy tales in his thirties. But at that point Grimm's had been established, and we're also coming off like a century or two of this retelling of folktales by aristocratic women in salons and kind of this remix game where they are taking folklore and running it through their own lens..
