"Shut down because of mysterious people gone missing missing miners and think that says something like twenty one miners trapped in the mine which they never recovered a nice little setup to get you going into the creepy nece. I love this movie a lot because it has kind of a good sweet old school point of view camera stuff for the monster. They only had one monster four this movie and they put it to good use. It was cool. Now was the monster. That creepy can resembled a turtle. I watched them behind the scenes stuff. And and actually the shell of the turtle was kind of like look like a sheep's brain but it had tentacles like a squid or an octopus and we see a brief moments in this movie with just the tentacles and that just what kind of sets it off. Really well i really dig this movie the kills or fun it Sneaks up on you. Now these These minds supposedly have tunnels that go to the different houses in the area. Most of these houses seem to be vacant around this area. It could have built on that a little bit more but this is a small production a small movie. This was directed by james conway. James conway has twenty five producers credits and forty five directing credits He started off way early in the seventies. He did several episodes of the life. Time of grizzly adams but also came around in nineteen eighty to do hangar eighteen. Movie that we will probably end up covering in-depth on the moratorium at some time. Because that's that's a hell of a lot of fun as well matt houston. He didn't eight episodes of matt. Houston we keep bringing up matt houston because it keeps showing up. Everybody worked on that television series He also had seven episodes. He directed under macgyver star. Trek next generation star trek voyager and deep space nine as well as enterprise but he also did sixteen episodes of charmed little trivia about the production of the boo. Actually that when he met the leading actress rebecca balding who plays trish in the movie. Not trish the dish. Thank you mallrats tricia jones. They call her trish the dish. No this is Rebecca balding She's been around for a little bit. I'll talk about her but when they met they fell in love. They were actually. I believe married before. The production ended on this movie. And i believe they're still married very interesting. Now rebecca balding. She has been around for welshmen actress in forty eight different credits here including making it. Which i don't remember that was a nineteen seventy nine tv series making it. That was inspired by saturday night. Fever it looks like it was only on for nine episodes. Now david naughton ellen travolta rebecca balding nine episodes. This was touted as a comedy Comedy music which i don't recall Saturday night fever being comedy. Somebody correct me anyway. Rebecca balding also showed up in nineteen episodes of soap that was in nineteen. Seventy eight hundred nineteen eighty. Soap was wadley popular comedy. Show back in the day. We've brought up several times ac- she showed up in a matt. Houston trapper john. Md macgyver. She had a small stint tv series called paradise. She also starred in twenty three episodes of charmed of course because her husband also helped direct many episodes of that anyway. Very interesting stuff behind this. I'd also stars. fred. Mccarron fred mccarron. He died in two thousand six at the age of fifty five but he played a lot of tv stuff but he was ritchie in xanadu. Talk about xanadu a lot. I'm probably going to make jason watch this at some time because it was a lot of fun back in the day or that i remember. It could be a total disaster. Our guy fred was also in one episode of alice. Which we love to talk about. Allison mel's diner. He also showed up in class reunion in nineteen eighty two. This was a national lampoon's class reunion. Which had garrett graham stephen i we've talked about this plenty of time and also has blackie damaged in it anyway. Very interesting stuff here. Fred was also and a couple of episodes of. Gimme a break. Too close for comfort. Hardcastle mccormick scarecrow and mrs king and the golden girls. He died at a young age and it looks like of colon cancer. Cancer fucking sucks guys. This also stars and marie martin as jessica four and anne. Marie martin has been around for a little bit. She was windy and prom night. She also played a character in a nineteen seventy-eight. Tv movie of doctor. Strange this goes way back. I never seen that movie. Ns just probably fine. And she was also credited as dorsey and halloween too. I wonder if darcy was one of the nurses that came out to To the parking lot. That sounds pretty familiar. I'm going to have to look that up. Somebody correct me. that's fine. what's interesting about and marie martin. She was married to michael crichton for some time. Very interesting That was from nineteen eighty seven to two thousand and two and some more trivia. You didn't know she wrote twister. Nineteen ninety-six twister with bill. Paxton and helen hunt very interesting stuff. Only writing credit very cool. Cool shit i. She was also in two hundred ninety. Eight episodes of days of our lives so you wonder where she came around to be an actress. That's probably it. She was also in sledgehammer tv series from thousand nine hundred. Eighty six She was in forty one episodes of that she was in one episode of saint elsewhere and Episode of powers in matthew star. That i will be talking about here pretty quick again. Gotta love the boo gan's as a creepy. It's a monster movie like. I said they only had one of creatures. They only had enough money to create one of them so it was used in a manner that actually made. It seem like there were more. It was a lot of fun. I still enjoy this movie. The creature is kind of kooky. But that's why we use a lot of the point of view shots. Jim coupe is listed as the writer of the screenplay jim coup we've talked about time and time again on the moratorium. He has written some of the our favorite movies from back in the day. Which include Whitewater rebels that we covered in our spring slasher fest. He co produced secret admirer. He did stake out. He has written many things up the creek the hidden which we also covered on the moratorium. Go back and listen to that hidden episode up. The creek is probably one of the movies. Were going to keep talking about you. Guys just needing run out and watch it jim. Coup has been around for quite some time and has been taking care of us nerds four years One great part about this hidden. Jim of the boubons is yes. There was a novelization a movie tie in back in the day. They did a lotta movie tie in books. When people were actually reading books. I would love to get a copy of one of these. I think i saw it listed on ebay for forty dollars and that might be a little bit much for my budget for something. That's gonna sit on my shelf and be fondled by me on a daily basis. But i would love to have it my collection Little interesting fact. Here there is a Doomsayer always loved doomsayers in our horror movies. The ones that know what's going on and just like crazy ralph from friday the thirteenth. We have to have a doomsayer. This one His name is john lower merge. John lorimer He died in nineteen eighty six so just five years after the making of this film has a hundred and seventy four credits to his name. He has been around for quite some time. A lot of tv series but something. I didn't realize that he played nathan grantham in creepshow nathan. Grampian was father in the father's day episode. I want my cake use and.

"Back on track capsule with war conversations from every trick generate playing the klingons. And we'll start with with you bob Garon was very ambitious a ruler and he was actually writing history. Much to worst chagrin. How do you see him now. way what we're going to now is. Somebody must watch that show too. I think what what occurred was It was a natural ability of a when you switch shows I didn't expect to. I started off with next gen. And actually i thought i was pretty heroic figure Yeah could because. I was coming from a family. Klinghoffer family that was sort of outside the realm they were of royalty but the way that the description was is that i was not an acceptable sort of person for and how i became this battle with with the other clay on to takeover was never actually explained that one once. I did take over and get it then. When michael jordan was moved over to deep space nine. I knew i was probably going to do one of two things be killed off or get transferred over in the and once i got transferred over. I know exactly what was going to occur. I would become you know the enemy to some way or or degree or They needed people to fight to give action to the show. And i was natural that what was interesting is they made me a political figure lot. Just i figured if i gotta fight i'd probably only lasted season till the alternative was to become political. And and they did that to me. And i lasted the full run out of space. Nine which was excellent in my own opinion was. But i have no. You know. it's like one of those actors. You know you give me the job i do it. You know. it's like the less. I have my own opinion about it. I feel that's what i should be doing giving my opinion about it and and just do the job. There are certain things. I liked disliked. But i'm not a writer you know. They have to go the full spectrum of much charter job. I feel and a much more free job To to go and create enough and j g you know. I i thought in some ways. Mark was interesting because in some ways he was kind of a mentor and surrogate father for For war and was instrumental in helping him after the death of his wife And so on the right track with him. Or what does he view worth. More as a comrade didn't start out that way. I am the the first really significant episode. That i was in was once more into the breach. Yes and i. That was john color coast. Who was coming back. coming forward really the i cling on ever. John color goes has frank He was coming into Earn himself an honorable death. I guess he knew he was dying and he wanted to somehow a crown his life with an honorable death which is everything to clean up and he came to me. But i would not confusing two episodes The first episode was These are my two favorite episodes. So i do get mixed up Soldiers of the empire in soldiers the empire which was directed by lavar burton mar talk was presented as a man who has lost his courage. Locke's nerve a klingon that's lost. His courage disrespected. His ship was disrespected. It was he was like the the If there was a like a curse to ship in the navy that was it His his ship and the the the klingon crew hated themselves hated. The ship hated him and War came on and jet zeal also but war put me in a position where i could actually behave in such ways to overcome by fear works character at after any did it and i and i did overcome by fear of the gem dr and at the end we i welcome making part of how smarttalk so he was part he was part son part brother that was the most that was probably the most emotionally fulfilling episode. I ever got a chance to do because it really pushed. Mar talk to his emotional ends about being a a with all senate done being a coward being afraid there are things i would. I would undertake now except as john and accepted. You know there are too many people involved in this too much chance a chance of failure. But i would love to be able to do it anyway. Provided mar talk with that possibility. It worked out in a major part in my house with jamie fulfilled. A need that he had is well. No absolutely no. That was great. It was great the whole Klingon storyline on. Espn was awesome and You gotta credit guy who really knew how to write them. Ronald d moore. Who would only give you more man right. He he had those great klingon stories man was he had great great command of klingon culture. And if you've ever met. Ron he is the most like Whenever the opposite of bearing is he he's the most humble man is yes he's a he's a genius but he's so humble. He sold non-aggressive non demonstrative of of. This is how much i know. It's just not there And i have the greatest respect for rushmore. But the other the other thing in my case with the with the once more into the breach lavar burton was a director once more into the breach. And i think james conway allen craker directed soldiers the empire notre. Sorry screwed up again. Lavar directed soldiers the empire allen. Craker yet another canadian direct at once. More into the breach they were both fabulous directors. Michael vahard was He was a dp director was he was sort of a very talk about a very humble man he was. You never hear about him in fact he. He's he's unflappable. I've tried to find him through the through all those resources we have and he just does not want to be found so e as anyway Great writers like ron moore. We had great directors and terrific actors and the guy in charge. Ira oh yeah.

I i didn't know renee had a background in upstate. New york as well heart of his youth was growing up there. I think with a lot of artists around him what he told me. Well one thing that is happening as we record this is actually tomorrow but this will be after it runs is a museum science fiction who i respect greatly is doing this really cool thing. We're both you gentlemen. And dr mark ogrin Is going to be onstage or actually not on stage these days but probably resume unsown keen stage theatre during quarantine. I'm telling you but that's going to be really special and actually i I asked us to dr okay. I'm gonna ask you gentlemen. Were there ever any words that you were supposed to say in klingon that maybe you to dr okra as somebody saying what you got me saying here i was. I was privileged to sort of do a whole dictionary kind of thing I did a cd-rom and they added a whole section of learning klingon. And i was to be the teacher And it was some of the first tries at trying to do. I don't know what you call it. A video where somebody could talk pack and and and i would tell you whether you did it right The technology wasn't there but the idea was and But i couldn't do any of it because so they flew mark in to sit next to me and he would tell me how to do the word and And i would do the word and he said no bob that that's not right you have to spend more so it was very covid. Nineteen not not good the way klingons talk and so we definitely have to wear masks but he said he was very patient with me and sometimes at the say word like three or four times before i got the actual accent and was able to turn to camera and he was literally two feet away from them and then the camera was two feet away from me so he would tell me i would try and then i do. It took care of her And this went on for two day. I think would took us two days to film it it. It was a lot of fun. And i enjoyed. But you know. Mark than i sorta became very close in and it was great that we got to know each other. Then could years. We got no other medic. Well what's funny is. I played that cd rom. And i went to the language lab work our on. It appears on the on the holiday and and so me being little younger and more impatient. I said i don't wanna do the thing. Let me go right to the ship. And i'm on the klingon bird. Pray and i. I do something or say something. That's not wrong and geron would appear essentially cursed me out in klingon every time. I should should've been curse including that's right that's right. That was a lot of fun to do that. I have to admit is this the. Cd-rom called klingon. Start going on. Yeah yeah yeah I was. I think i was on that as i played the old klingon didn't have much to say. Yeah yeah but. I think that is absolutely was and When i when. I read for that Jonathan frakes directed it. And when i read for that. I can't do a sequence in learn english learning the reading script overnight before i went into audition. There was a sequence. It was in klingon three or four or five lines. And i said well this is ridiculous. I have no idea how to pronounce these words. I don't know what they mean. Screw that i'll use a foreign language argues about. What could i use french. French sounds like french spanish lou. German getting closer. Oh i know. Latin and the because my mother was a latin teacher. I took too much latin through l. Through high school and college but i learned a memorize a long long long long time ago. Nineteen seventy-one a thing called Cicero's oration against caroline. And so i went right into it. I was saying war. You see that is quote may take Notre on debt so it went on for a while. And when i was done. Frank said You know i've never had anybody auditioning in in latin before laughing at me and he said but i love latin and he said i. There's nothing written for you in this in this cd-rom but i'm going to ask the writers to write you in. So that's how. I got that first job. On bob's rahm called data and he's on the cover and as it's always been in fact much later like thirty years ago i got chance through a introduce at the at a thing in los angeles somebody at forget james conway or doug conway can't remember who had asked me to if i could introduce buzz aldrin. Who was in the audience to bring him up. And i said sure what Everybody knows. Exactly what i know it. I have no self. You know. So i said i to work up something. So i said the like introduce gentlemen now whom you all know is buzz aldrin and about way buzzword. How did you get that name buzz. I said we're living. Oh then i remembered all it's nineteen sixty nine all of course you and neil armstrong were on your way and i could see it now. Buzz abcradio the moon. He last thank goodness is good but yeah no. I don't know what i'm sorry about. Charge a funny story funny story. I'm are you going say something. No i was gonna. I was gonna say you introduced. No did you introduce me first. And then bob yes. That's the way it never goes that way. Really it always goes gal ron and march hawk. The and i said it's it's like it's like neil armstrong and buzz aldrin. It only shade that right so he said that way absolutely. That's the funny thing about both of you. Is that your first appearance on star trek. You're not playing klingons. Oh i wasn't. I didn't know you were bob. My first job was In the holiday that guy was a gangster in the big goodbye with when they went into the into the thirties and forties. Oh is that when you were dealer now.

If more is a comrade, it didn't start out that way. I I the the first really significant episode that I was in was off once more into the breach. Yes, and I that was with John colicos who was coming back coming forward really the first Klingon ever John Colby goes that's right. He was coming in to earn himself an honorable death. I guess he knew he was dying and he wanted to somehow Crown his life with an honorable death, which is everything to a Klingon and he came to me, but I would not No, I'm confusing two episodes.

It's anyway Wharf provided martok with that possibility it worked out in that it's made in part of my house which fulfill the need that he had. Well, oh absolutely. No, that was great. It was great. The whole Klingon storyline on DS9 was awesome. And you gotta credit the guy who really knew how to write him running away. The war will give you more man. You're right. He he had those great Klingons stories man. It was he had great great command of Klingon culture.

He's so non-aggressive non demonstrative of this is how much I know, you know, it's just not there and I have the greatest respect for but the other the other thing in my case with with once more into the breach LeVar Burton was a director.

That was John Colin Coast who was coming back. coming forward really the first. Klingon ever John Calicoes has He was coming in to earn himself an audible death I.

Confusing episodes the first episode was with These are my two favorite episodes. So do get them mixed up soldiers of the empire? In soldiers, the empire which was directed by Lavar Burton. smarttalk was presented as a man who has lost his courage lost his nerve, Klingon that's lost his courage. Disrespected his ship was disrespected. It was he was like the. The. If there was a accursed ship in the navy that was it his his ship at the the the Klingon crew.

I have the greatest respect for rushmore, but the other the other thing in case with the with a once more into the breach Lavar, Burton was the director. Of. The breach and I think James Conway Allen craker directed. Soldiers the Empire Notre Dame. Sorry of screwing up again. Lavar directed soldiers the empire. Alan craker yet another Canadian directed once more into the breach. They were both fabulous directors Michael VR was Eddie He was a a DP anti director He was sort of a very talk about a very humble man he was. You never hear about him in fact he he's. He's on findable. I've tried to find him through the. Through all the resources we have been, he just does not want to be. found. is so he has A. Anyway We had great writers like Ron, Moore. We had great directors and terrific actors and the guy in charge. IRA. Oh. Yeah. you know he just loved IRA loves actors and he loves storytelling above all. In that way, he was I think sorta like Gene Roddenbury, he tried to find the most important things to say and put him into I. Fight Context was wonderful I. Say out of all this series, a deep space nine was easily the most diverse. That was such diversity with August with races and aliens was just it re it actually reflected a lot of the real world in it and You had a captain that was a father to, and we never saw that right and not only you're right about that man. The world was very, very rich likely action world. Last episode what you leave behind we leave behind his leg I think out of all the shows after next generation. I think gene roddenberry would like ds nine, the the Best I think would be nice. That would now have bob got a chance to meet Oh. That's nice. That's nice. Start with you bob and also Jj of course. Have you seen some of the New Star Trek at all? I did see. The first one. In a very large knew there was an opening and We were all invited and. The one that shot up in Canada and I loved it a lot of times West we would I think of the new Klingons, and and and I. Actually have to say I love them to I. Think every show deserves its own. Look at Klingons and the their own interpretation of we seem to change from showery Xiao except for next Gen to deep space that was the exception. I did enjoy their new look I like that. Because of the show actually going back in time. you know the actually introduction of of the klingons to. Humans coupons and I enjoyed it. Third -joyed the show I. Love the acting the actors are wonderful. All of them. It's it's a good addition to the family and it's really wonderful to see. Shows Continue Roddenberry name continuing and and Star Trek and?

It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed but mark the night sorta became very close in and it was great. Got We got to know each other. Could years we've gotten to know each other better? Well, what's funny is I played that cd-rom and I went to the language lab work our Peters on the on the holiday. And and So me being little younger and more impatient. I said I don't WanNa. Do the thing let me go right to the ship and I'm on the Klingon Vertebrae and I I do something or say something that's not wrong and Garan would appear essentially cursed me out in Klingon every. Hugh should've been cursed. That's right. That's right. That was a lot of fun to do that I have to admit. Is this the CD ROM called Klingon start going on? Yeah. Yes. Yeah. I was I. Think I was on that as I played the old Klingon didn't have much to say, Oh yeah. Yeah. But. I. Think that is absolutely was and. When I when I read for that Jonathan frakes directed it and when I read for that I, it came to a sequence in learning, learning the reading the script overnight before I went into audition. I, there was a sequence it was in Klingon three or four or five lines. And I said, this is ridiculous I. Have No idea. Pronounce these words had I don't know what they mean screw that I'll use a foreign language I'll use what could I French French sounds like French. Spanish German. Get closer. Oh I know. Latin. and. The because my mother was a Latin teacher I took too much Latin through L. through high school and college. But I learned a memorize a long long long long time ago. Nineteen seventy-one. A thing called CICERO's oration against Caroline. I went right into it. I was saying war. If you see that is quote talk maybe country in the putty notre on. A. So it went on for a while and when I was done, frakes said you know of never had anybody auditioning in in Latin before. Laughing at me and he said, but I love Latin and he said I there's nothing written for you in this in this cd-rom but I'm going to ask the writers to write you in. So. That's how I got that first job on Bob's. CD Rom called EGA and he's on the cover and as it's always been in fact much later like thirty years ago I got a chance to introduce at a at a thing in Los Angeles somebody at forget James Conway or Doug Conway. Can't remember who had asked me to if I could introduce Buzz Aldrin who was in the audience. To. Bring, him up. And I said what's Everybody knows exactly what I know it I have no self. You know. So I, said, I gotta work up something so I said I said like introduce gentlemen now. Whom you all know is Buzz Aldrin and abundant buzzword. How did you get that name buzz? I said Oh then I remembered all, it's nineteen, sixty nine. Oh. Of course, you and Neil Armstrong were on your way. And I could see it now does. God. Deal. The Moon. He. Last Sega's good. But.

"Mob partners Jimmy Conway and Tommy DeVito and the Italian American crime syndicate. So they didn't want to call it the mob. And I mdb, you know? Well, you can't cross certain lines on the On the D B man, I guess so. This movie stars Bobby D as James Conway first build a tad surprising I think they had to because he was the biggest star going into the movie. Okay, Fair. It's like in Batman. When Nicholson was the first building he was the Joker. Sure that my contract I would assume that checks out. All right, Ray Liotta as Henry Hill. He's great in one of my favorite characters of all time. I'm going to point this out to you early in the movie. He is an ugly young man, but late in the movie is a handsome older gentlemen well seventies and the eighties that was in my notes, but Just really, really strong. No. Taking you. Joe Pesci is Tommy DeVito, of course, won the Oscar Lorraine Bracco is Karen Hill is every part is good As those first three she got nominated for best supporting actors. She probably should have won, but you lose, too will be a would be right. Paul Sorvino place. Paul Cicero, Frank Severo Place Frankie Carbone. Let me point this out to you, Frank Severo has the worst hair I have ever seen in my life won't last year anyone's ever seen. It's an actual Chia pet so good. What a Sony good, like what is happening with his? I don't know. I don't want you to ask questions. I think it's the greatest thing a long time. I'm just starting out. Every scene that he was in. I was lost because of his hair. By the way, this cast lists you could have just used their their real names, and it also would have worked in the movie. Tony Darrow, Sonny Buns. Mike Stars Frenchy Frank Vincent As Billy Batts obviously plays a central role. Chuck Lo is Morris Kessler. Frank DiLeo is tutti Cicero, Henny Youngman as himself. I don't know who that person is. Gina Mastrogiacomo. It's a real pies on right there. Janice, the girlfriend, first girlfriend on then Marty Scorsese's parents actually play a role here. Catherine Scorsese plays Tommy's mother, the one that makes him the dinner at three on Charles Scorsese Place, Vinnie. I don't know of any is but apparently is in the movie. I'm blanking right now, but When Carbone was killed. Was he shot in the head? Hey, might he must have been he had to have been if I was anybody else, I wouldn't even know it was an off screen thing. You know, He probably wasn't shot in the head, because if you shoot a bullet at that, it's just going to bounce off and hit you in the face. Let you shoot him in the eye right yet, Right? Yeah, obviously. So, this one with Pesci as best supporting actor. It was nominated for best picture, nominated for supporting actress Lorraine Bracco was nominated for best director Scorsese best adapted screenplay and best film. Editing. So it was nominated for six at 11. It probably should have won, at least for it should have won. All of them at least. Yeah, probably should've won. Yes, him, especially in that year, and we both watched the remastered version, which I believe came out. Five years ago, four years ago. What's different? You think I guess they updated it to like four K. Scan it to four k or something. So I haven't I probably couldn't watch the original in a while, but I didn't hear you difference. So that's good. So few if you go to rent this on prime like we did. It's the same movie. There's nothing different about it. I would say that's the most memorable thing from this movie Arvin Pesci and some characters and some plot points. Is the Layla piano exit the song that place a couple times in the movie during when Carbone gets whack, and all those wagons is at the end you mentioned Leila. I would just say all of the music and how it's used in the story in general. Yes, even at the beginning ofthe is gone from rags to riches. I even like when the credits roll. They play the song my way, but I did it. My I said vicious, right? Yeah. The Sid vicious first love that little touch to it. So there's two things that I did hate in this movie. Okay, getting out of the way, Okay, goes out of the way. So the editing on Pesci's death, the cuts and OK, it didn't even sync up of them, shooting him in the head and then them cutting to his face. Yes, so that when it cuts to him falling isn't good. No, it's me that it's a good point. You did mention to me. You wash it right before I did say there's two things you didn't like. So what's the second one? The title card at the end of I think, like, what does it say in the title card at the with the thing swooping in and out that stuff the aftermath, So after he gets arrested, and then it says the aftermath on a title card They haven't done that. The entire movie. Why would we suddenly have a new but they do it with dates? Widowed 1980. You know they do with dates, but not with words. I don't need that because we know that the aftermath is coming. It's the next get that that's a Scorsese thing. So that's just in general. You don't like that. He does just fine with that. And the one thing I didn't like. And there's no rhyme or reason to. It is shortly after that aftermath stuff at the very end before the credits. He breaks the fourth wall in the courtroom, and I found that These are also something any watch you had done. The entire movie starts pocket out, You know, like in the movie basically ends here, like all right, I'll just forget about that. So those three things that I think are good points. Actually, the aftermath was not a good one. The anything with the Pesci death and then him breaking the fourth wall again. Weird, weird sort of oversights, or, you know thoughts to do that. I don't. I don't understand Why that it's the Millennium of aftermath. Eminem's record label, but again, do I actually. So maybe I should have known this. I didn't know that the song that I remember this movie for Layla Piano exit was just the outro to the world Famous Layla by Derek and the dominos, But really, by our Clapton. Eric Clapton was the singer and guitarist. I didn't know that Layla had nitro number one. But this is the outro to that song. Did you know that I had never thought of it. So the answer would be? No, I did not. And in the original version of Layla, which we all know, and love by our Clapton has this tro So Clapton was the singer and guitarist of that band, which I had no idea and, ah, the original recording of this song features slide guitar by Duane Allman, who died. He must have died like Right after the song was made son of the Allman Brothers, and that's pretty incredible. Clapton and Almond both playing guitar on the same night, I say was almond. He was an enemy of discussion. Pistachio, right pistachio discussing Guy's name. You know, that's a good question. We'll have to have the one of our one of our listeners. Let us know little turtle and then last little tidbit about the song Clapton wrote the song about his friend George Harrison's wife. So Clapton and George Harrison grew up together in England. They were good friends. George Harrison gets married to a lady named Patti Boyd Or is the Brits caught called Patti Boyd, and then they later got divorced, and Clapton married her..

"I hear some of the holdings I think the support when James Comey was removed as FBI director call me still it copies of memos two four six and seven it is personal safe at home after being removed as director call we did not report to the FBI that he had copies of these memos home we subsequently provided is copies of members two four six and seven to the office of special counsel Robert Muller on June seventh twenty seventeen so you gave them to Bob molar but eating given to the F. B. I. Olympia yeah I know we still have him then call me did not seek authorization from the F. B. I. before providing members two four six and seven to his attorneys then call me instructed right Richmond one of his other attorneys this year the contents of the memo memo for but not the memo itself with a specific reporter for The New York Times called me did not seek F. B. I. authorization before providing the contents of the memo through the lawyer to a reporter this was a middle of a conversation he had with the president of the United States it kinda gets overlooked in this I was in these are conversations you had with the president absolutely Sir one of the things that we should keep in mind is James Conway a duty to the FBI he owed a duty to the D. O. J. he actually should have complied with his employment agreement and it's clear beyond a full question that he owed a duty of at least worth back to the president of the United States who had the power to terminate him and who was justified in terminating a James call me I think if you look at the I. G.'s report it is littered with evidence which suggests that James calmly complied with only one forty that was the authority that he made up in other words James call me acted as a law unto himself and I think it's good for the American people but he is no longer in an official capacity I am gonna be today we're taking vocals one eight hundred six eight four three one one zero eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten Leo and technical aid should calling from Illinois online to Asia welcome to J. secular live you're on the air hi I just like to know thank you for taking my call but he possibly lose his pension for this what's interesting question because they said he violated his employment agreements I thought about that I mean what does so what is the impact on the employment agreement with regard to if you breach your employment remit what is that to do with your retention for your retirement I don't know the answer to that I don't know what the employment laws ought to go back to McCabe was like he missed it by like a date he didn't best automotive assessing even though he was gonna get fired yes it even if he would have been fired if you would and fired like a week later he still would have got his pension I think some call me may have worked there long enough that you qualify you qualify even though he was fired and now the question would be is because he could be fired but does which would not necessary because the present could out of course that the constitutional right to barge into me right because it's right by the way based on these reports of constitutional reasons and became was fired by the F. B. I. directly yeah at a recommendation per sponsored bill you the day before he vested salon that's timing I think again the bigger picture here and it is worth being upset about is that Jim Comey is doing a dance right now one I'd I'd like to hear like Hillary Clinton like I I can't imagine she so happy about this I wonder he is he's really doing because it's not a lot of hits call he's not stupid he knows that this stuff is still but a lot of investigation still coming not from him his tweets use his own name in the tweets there from his lawyers so when you tweet like Jim tell me is not DO J. I. G. found no evidence the comb years attorneys released in the class were you wouldn't tweet that from your own account if you were too easy I got it you know I mean this morning the self is holding his own name so these these are so fully crafted like what they have to because it does not come I was asking for a public apology because I don't need one but a quick message would be nice yeah so he does not let me give you a quick message I'll give you a quick message hopefully see in court here thing here here's a quick message the double F. B. R. the proper justice concludes a James Cummings retention handling dissemination of certain memos violated apartment FBI policies and is that B. I. employment grew it there's Michael short message you're a bad FBI director Jim coming back and that's how I will remember you yeah that's right I mean tell something again I I ask you get you get reaction from senator Graham what else we got I I think they think that James Comey is engaging in distraction Jay I mean he wants to talk about how none of them had a secret classification well here's the top line take away that members of Congress should focus on two of them were classified as confidential and subject to federal law retention all of them were dean to for official use only and subject to federal attention he hid them in a safe did not request permission to keep them did not tell them he kept them and then leave them for an official purpose I think he's trying to distract you from that NJ one other quote I would read to you from the reports on page sixty one officials who are described as his senior leadership team which in other places the report that refers to people like injure McCabe James for Becky James Baker Lisa page they say that the closest advisers used the words quote surprised stunned shocked and disappointment to describe their actions learning what you call me that day those are people who are willing to use their official purposes for political purposes and this even shocked them yeah Andy McCarthy said this take a listen if somebody in call me is agency had done what he did he did terminated in nothing flat so there you have it so this is not a win for James call me I mean I think that's it you know he's trying to spend a lot is being very careful because you know there's other investigations going on here but he violated FBI policies and he did that by the way with Hillary Clinton destination he did it with this man he has a pattern of violating F. B. I. rules and regulations a serial violator abreast of regulations and policies of the FBI I think you're precisely cracked and so again if we look at page sixty one of the report the I. G. states as follows we have previously faulted combing acting unilaterally and inconsistent with department policy Colby's on authorize disclosure of sensitive law enforcement information about the flame investigation merit similar criticism in a country built on the rule of law it is of utmost importance that all FBI employees and here to department and FBI policies particularly when confronted by what appeared to be extraordinary circumstances or compelling personal convictions how many had several other lawful options for instance available to him to addict advocate for the appointment of a special counsel which was his goal in making these disclosures but of course he chose an unlawful option I know it's it's it is mind boggling a what happened here I mean I just I keep going back to that it's my my light let's go ahead and take another phone call eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten yeah Whitney calling from Texas online for Whitney welcome to J. secular live you're only about the this is the art that what he's talking about the HHS when we had yes I go and Winnie yeah I think so much I just wanted to let you guys know this is already having a ripple effect in my family okay I've got a senior in high school who is applying to nursing school and we've had the conversation you're going to be in situations that challenger conscious you're going to be in situations that might even violate your affect how you can handle that and last night we were able to have a conversation Hey there is a precedent for you to be federally protected so she's she's really a lot more confident going into her field we also have it in the family who is a surgical nurse in California who has been dead been denied employment before because she's made it clear in the interview process I won't perform abortions in the past they've said thanks but no thanks all right I guys put the legal helpline number I want to make sure we give that to which we don't give it out right now over there because of her and wants to contact us about you know everything just go to a seal J. out or contact is the best way to do it yeah okay because against this is what we're talking about people being denied employment because they thought they exactly surgical nurse highly trained is it your but I have a conscious object in objection to performing abortion and by the way there's a federal law that protects her and you cannot decide not to hire that person based off their their a decision not to perform abortions that's the same kind of violation Whitney what you're talking about is is is great because now your daughter knows that she has a federal law protecting her it's not it's not just the idea it's not just like a rule or precedent even it is a federal law that is now being enforced so since you have a law that sat there since nineteen seventy three now it's being enforced so you get the law plus the presses and so with the that is great news for you I mean this is already having effect you see people are hearing about this is a no this is exactly why we added this you've got the air who did not get hired to surgical nurse a very high level nurse because she said I will not perform abortions she can go to a seal J. dot org Whitney and contest we can that we can help her out that's we want to do with this and folks we want to build a huge campaign I just another battle for life it's like you know sometimes you secure fighting every battle you care for the pro life cause and in a completely new door opens up yeah and it was art very smart legal team in the pro life that works are pro life cases it open this door Frank minion who I was emailing back and forth with until I think about three in the morning last night about this case going back and forth because I know it's gonna go on fox in the morning one to make it is to sync as possible so that people that heard this understood the attraction look let's take this to the next level folks but to do it got to have your financial support let me tell you something this was a monumental win for the a CLJ you beat back the IRS that was a monument to when you get HHS to insist that concentrates be protected these are major what's yours we are in the last hours.

proximity so you don't have to miss your favorite musicians while you get yourself a drink and that is not that is not playing into a stereotype it is beautiful planning eight fest planning to so people can enjoy what they're there for and they don't have to travel and there's never there's never huge lines for anything as crowded as the first gets because of the way it's laid out because of

yes okay in this is what makes it what makes their addition so different for the fax well I I'm not sure we've ever had anything like it I mean it's a big big lake they cover the band they do a lot of really cool old you know country I don't know if if anything ever had any acts like that before very cool but I think for Friday night it's really great because we also have come to the right what might have been on the show before and they play a lot of fun kind of alt country type stuff that's kind of the focus of the evening well that's the beauty of Irish first because you may think well I'm not a big you know traditional Irish music it's not it's not there is traditional Irish music there but there is such a wide variety of bands and styles and everything that's coming up there your I guarantee as you walk around you're going to find something that you really did absolutely a lot of bands covering iris rock folk great traditional Irish music marquis cars as a tenor who's with us today I know market and you're not alone we make you may press press on but a really great mix of everything and a lot we also focus on our dance music schools to Sir James got his start with the academy of Irish music all American here before so yeah so we try to make sure that all of the musicians and dancers who practice and perform at the center get a chance to show off and at what they do very nice so we obviously music is all around there's what there's four stages five six six day yes so six stages you've got everything going on and there's but there's a lot of other things that we joke about this every year that it's not just people coming in having pints and it's not just for adults there everybody is welcome families kids Graham is Grampus everybody everybody seems to enjoy Irish yeah I mean it's and it's indoor outdoor since the weather is not an issue we also have a tea room so when it gets really hot people can come inside and and sit down and have tea and scones and a beautiful setting that's where I usually spend money sitting there you have it to you with my pinky up what we're very excited about the return of photographer Barry Butler he's a really great Chicago photographer he was born in Wexford but grew up in Chicago in a lot of his images you see all over Facebook and all over TV news sites he shoots really great scenes of the river and landscape so he's coming off the hook or anything so he's coming back again this year now last year there was a big red head thing is that happening again this year the red head to take a break it creeps me out a lot so to go to really read I believe there were too many red hat it was like a world they were trying to do a world record yeah it was great they were all very nice but that many red heads in one spot its troubles brewing there's no doubt about it that's true I didn't think about that it's just you know there they all were very nice but I since they were plotting some there was going to be some sort of violent overthrow of the center and I was not prepared to do it red hat yes well listen I'm not saying I'm just saying perhaps the they've got a few things on their mind their their scheme and that's all but the will hope to come back they are of the Irish will phone there dogs from the Great Lakes iris will found association and they come back all weekend so it's probably about ten or fifteen beautiful dogs and each day they give a talk about the breed and the unique nature of them so and they're very friendly yeah I don't like winter had sent their huge no I don't think that that list if I if I had any doubts that the wolfhounds were trying to overthrow the center I would put the kibosh on this whole thing but I believe they would be the first line of defense against if in fact thousands of red heads do descend on north knocks Avenue next weekend as they are want to do because they you know they strength in numbers will files are gonna protectors bush the white Sox recruiter be there so we'll have a somebody with a bat will price and some back papers we papers will be there the Shannon Rovers yeah they're not gonna mess around now they're not gonna put up with any nonsense no read it's I don't think in the shin Rovers not that I've seen with the with the where the hats so I'm not really privy to their problems but that's so there there's a lot of fun to be had where I want to talk about the cultural stuff because we talk about the music we talk I will talk about the food and all that stuff too but I want to James is here and you know I will I wanted James to play a little a little music so he's got how do you call it ten was you called it a pennywhistle before is there a difference the same thing it's it's it's such a simple like recorder that's what I was gonna ask is it AT their OWN grade schools the kids all play recorders and they kind of look like that recorders actually more complex than the pennywhistle sick that's a six fold I tonic instrument this was in the key of a and it's a place to major scales.
