Was Paul Newman Bi-Sexual?
"That led into my fascination with Paul Newman. I've always had a theory. The guy married Joanne Woodward who I think is plain Jane. This guy was the most beautiful man in Hollywood history, perhaps. He married plain Jane, and he was with us since they were studying acting in the city, like very young. Doesn't make any sense to me. And then the guy goes on to teach Tom Cruise how to drive race cars and I'm like, oh, this seems like a little bit of a may December romance to me. Then he makes salad dressing in popcorn. Come on. Macho men don't think of salad dressing recipes and the wrong with salad and popcorn. I just don't think most men think about their face on those products, but God bless you made millions and he gave it away. Good, good, good man. So I started looking into Paul Newman, and I always go to these gay sites because the gays know the gays know. And there's a bunch of stuff on this site. I gave to the patrons, and I'm going to talk about Paul Newman possibly being gay next week. I think it's a crazy story. I think people will be interested. But this is what I read on this gay site. During the making of cat on a hot tin roof, whole Newman, if you've seen the movie plays a repressed homosexual by the name of brick. James Dean was supposed to be lined up for that role, but he died in a car crash before production began, so it went to Newman. Now, in the film version, the direct homosexual references were taken out from the Tennessee Williams script in order to satisfy the current production codes, if you will. So the film script kind of dances around the reasons why brick and cat played by the gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor hadn't slept together in years. But the mention of the suicide of bricks close football chum skipper was kept in. Close football chump. That's the way things were mentioned back in the day if you want to talk about gay. He's my football chum. You know, oh, really? At one point, Paul Newman told Tennessee Williams. The role of brick is perfect for me. All my life I've been split into two different directions. One side of me wants to live life with my gay football buddy skipper. The other side is tempted to fuck the living shit at a Maggie the cat and be their heterosexual stud most of my fans want me to be. Um.

"He's like trying to solve the mission. Why? He's got like a board with your picture and his picture and his red lines drawn. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, he's like a Zack called cop. What am I what am I missing here? Curious. So what is your response to that? What happened there? I mean, well, first of all, James Dean doesn't choose neither James Dean nor I choose what scenes an anal scene or not. Okay, okay. That's like the producer's choice. Okay. So maybe it wasn't an anal movie, maybe, but can you appreciate your budget? Can you appreciate the irony of an anal king in an anal Queen in the same room? But yet there's no anal. Can I appreciate the irony? You know what though? I know what I appreciate. No. I mean, I mean, like I've had anal sex with James Dean like a billion times, and I've had vaginal sex with him a billion times. Like, what? Am I supposed to do anal every time? You know what? That's not realistic. I like the producer. He threw his curveball. Yeah. He's like, oh, you think that's gonna happen? Yeah, it's not. They're just gonna drink tea together. Yeah. Or maybe it was before I started anal. That's true. But maybe it wasn't in the budget in the budget. Is it more? It'll cost more. Didn't know that. Side note insiders information, a lot of male performers don't do anal. Why? 'cause they're dicks just don't stay hard for anal. Oh. They just don't like it. Interesting.

"Feet you know I interview a lot of musicians who are married to each other and I often think it's enlightening to learn how those relationships on stage blend with the relationships at home I also don't often hear those musicians singing songs about it So how does it work for you too What's funny while a lot of this is harvested from our own experience everything that we do filters through a story or maybe like another person's experience just with our own knowledge about life You know when we are talking about stuff and if it does feel like heavy things that you carry with you it's like a result of well maybe like good therapy and a lot of time forced to communicate and how these things out Nothing that is said in a song hasn't already been said in counseling or like in the quiet you know Yeah We can we can also work our stuff out through these characters too We could be like so the character in this song was upset that the other character hadn't done this that and the other or at the way that she was acting and so you know he's doing this about it The other character hears you and sees you The other character The other one And respect You know what Interesting about your music though I mean I'm hearing you have this little debate between yourselves what's interesting about your music I think is that you often as Tyrion said writing through people like James Dean for instance This is a theme that kind of runs through your music Right Oh yeah we count on it It's like the best way I think it's just more interesting I don't know We've been doing it for a long time and maybe when we were younger it was more about expressing your personal feelings or getting something off of your chest but it's interesting to write characters and write scenes and settings and it's just kind of like writing a book or making a movie or something that you know anything can happen Well maybe this next song.

"He ran into Alec Guinness, just after he'd purchased the car. Yes, they were at a restaurant in Hollywood and they pat each other outside. And dean excitedly showed Alec, the Cara just bought this thing. So can you tell us what happened there with that? So Alec Guinness was about to show that apparently he reports that he was in a bad mood. He wasn't the successful actor we know now. He was hungry. He was tired. I think they can even get a table at the restaurant. James shows excitedly shows in this car. Which also had to think about alligators at this point. He hasn't got any money while this other young film star is showing him this brand new rare car. There's only 98 and he's showing him this new toy he's for himself. But Alec Guinness says the car to me look sinister and he said to James Dean, don't get in that car. If you get in that car, you'd be found dead this time next week. And that was September 23rd. James dies, September the 30th. Quite specific for Guinness there. Like he hasn't just said be carefully might ever crash. Yeah. He's dated the accident. He has a person of interest after this. Yeah. Do you think that this is a case of Alec Guinness retconning the scenario? Just thinking. Another actor doing slightly better than I am at the moment. So when he dies and as you say, Jake, the injuries that James Dean sustains in the crash are horrific. It's a closed coffin at his funeral. And then back at his house, it is like someone's just press paused on his life because they find not very much is quite an empty apartment, but things they do find a very indicative of the man he was, they find his bongos. They find his paints in his pastels. There's Czech cassette there's a saint Christopher's medal. He's got a scrapbook of quotes and poems. He's got that lock of his mother's hair. And then he's got these three pages torn from a Mark Twain book called the mysterious stranger. And there's a sentence underlie, because there's so much poetry around dean and so many spooky little things. And this is almost the final one for me. The sentence that he underlines from Mark Twain's book is life itself is only a vision a dream. As if he knows Katie, what is to come? I think he had a pretty good sense of himself, his entire life, I mean, by identifying with the little prince. I mean, who knows if that's him willing himself into that role? But I think that he really had a handle on how evanescent life is and he kind of flirted flirted with death. It seems. Yeah, and there's the quote from who himself, which is, if a man can reach the gap between life and death, if he can live after his died, then maybe he was a great man. And I suppose in some ways he has lived on after his death in a way that he wouldn't have appreciated as a 24 year old who had made three films because cater we talk about the legacy of people we talk about an event..

"Told me. Yeah. Oh, and crumpling is sort of beautiful way and raking his fingers through his beautiful quiff and just like just like you just want to consume this creature is so beautiful. Elvis Presley said in a 1956 interview with parade magazine I've made a study of Marlon Brando and I made a study of poor Jimmy Dean and I've made a study of myself, and I know why girls at least the young uns go for us were sullen, were burden or something of a menace. I don't understand it exactly, but that's what the girls like in men. I don't know anything about Hollywood, but I know you can't be sexy if you smile. You can't be a rebel if you grin. That's such a good quote and such a good performance let go. Thank you. Thank you very much. So when this final act in his life in his young life comes around, so soon, Jake, again, there feels like an inevitability about it because the obsession with speed has been there throughout his life. Every time he gets a bigger role he gets a faster motorbike or a fast car, he seems to get through his cars in a matter of weeks or months. He buys one car, then you'll see a faster one in the garage and get that one. He's racing, but there are so many events that seem to foreshadow what will eventually come to pass. The main one being the speed awareness video. Oh gosh. Which is incredible. He's clearly on the set of giant. He's dressed up as a character from giant. And he's got he's all like cowboy up. He sat there, he slapped his ear in his hand. Now the catch phrase from the video was be careful on the roads out there, the life you save might be your own. Right, because it's a public service announcement. So it's a whole series of these with different stars. That's it. And he turns it and as he's leaving, he gets up and he says he got to get back to set. And he walked to the door and he says, is there anything else you want to say? And he said, be careful on the roads out there. The life you say might be mine, and these smiles to himself that presenter laughs, and he's off. Shows a sense of humor. That he's spun it and he's made it for himself. But absolutely incredible that he's foreshadowed this thing, which is exactly what happens when he's on he's on the road. He's in his Porsche spider, little bastards is the name of the car. That was his nickname that he was given by the president of Warner Brothers, which James then took on instead of using as an insult. He took on a 90s car a little while. So I like it. You were saying Jake that James was quite adept at winning his races..

"Gets to New York, Jake. And he gets in with where all the cool kids are, which is the method acting scene. Is that right? Yes. Yeah, and he gets to go to the same school that Marlon Brando went to. Who we know he. The actor studio. The actor studio. The reports that they didn't meet until Marlon brother James Dean didn't meet until Marlon Brando came to the set of east of Eden. At which point everyone said how much James theme was idolizing this guy. There is, however, reports that 6 years earlier when James Dean was studying that while about a turned up to do a speech at the actor's studio, he was in New York, he said I want to go back and I want to do a talk. And Marlon Brando reported that when he was on stage, he could feel like his skin was burning, and he looked up to see this guy looking at him so intently like nobody had ever looked at him before. And it was James the institut at the back of the room. There then begins reports of a relationship that happened in New York that was very one sided. Of course, denied the whole thing, but there's a lot of their mutual friends who would say that they would see them together regularly and each time it looked more like James Dean was happy to be there than Marlon brand. All right. It seems haunted a lot the time to meet James Dean. This period Jake when he's in New York. So he's been taken there by Rogers bracket. His first apartment is paid for by the past that doctor de weird. So they are the lingering traces of those earlier relationships. He doesn't sound like he sleeps much. He goes out all night, he drinks. Sounds obsessed with his mother still. Yeah, he has been quoted as saying that he thought that sleep was a waste of time. And if he slept he would miss something. You can see that in his face, I think, in that scene you've talked to a mercy when he is performing opposite the mannequin who would become the president of the United States of America. You can see the bags under his eyes. You can see it on his face. To go back to what you said before talking about his relationship with his mother. And there's one of his relationships with a girl called Arlene Sachs. And she said this of him. Once I told him I loved him, but he pretended he didn't hear..

"I mean, there is a lot of things about the character very similar to James Dean, this voice of abandoned vice mom and a very closed off dad, and there's a scene in it where Cal James is character is trying to give his dad's a gift of money, but the way it plays out on what's left in the film is not what was supposed to happen. Oh, he was supposed to, I know, I know. This one, 'cause I watched the film last night. And that is such a powerful scene. So his dad is ruined himself with a bad business deal, and then James as the son who is like the red headed stepchild, figure. He ends up winning big on something. He makes a really good business decision and earns a lot of money and thinks this is going to buy my father's love if I give him this money. And the scene was staged so that the dad rejects it and James Dean is the son just goes running out of the door, but instead he shocked Raymond Massey the actor just by blubbering on him. Like, throwing his arms around him. I'm like dud and hugging him. And the actor was so shocked that he was just very realistic because he just was barking, you know, cow, cow. For God's sake, you know, pull yourself together. And it's one of the few times I've noticed where you see an actor that is acting opposite James Dean act as well as him because he's in the moment too. Yes. Because he doesn't know what's going to happen almost as though James Dean never knows quite what he's going to do. The actors he's acting we've never quite know what he's going to do, but because he went with it, you get one of the most real raw scenes he's ever found. So well said. And I mean, this gets into a thing I really wanted to talk about..

"To have him, and we were happy to have him. Okay. Which, again, is the thing of James Dean, as we learn about the episode, there were two sides to everything. And because he died so young, there's so many answers we don't really have. No. What we do have is then when he did move back, there is this relationship with a minister called doctor James Dewey. It's such an appropriate name because everything you hear about this man Katie is very weird. I think the most chilling detail but the spookiest detail I've read about him, Jake, is this big shrapnel hole he's got in his chest. So he's a single man, he's a minister. He lives with his mother, he likes taking groups of boys to the gym and suggests they swim naked. Several red flags already. There's a point where he takes the young James Dean for ride in his car, lifts up his shirt to show this shrapnel wound that he has sustained in the Second World War. And in an almost Christ like way, says put your fist in my wound. Oh my gosh, that is all many different flavors of wrong right there. The wound, the first, the Christ, everything. I don't like it. But the thing, I mean, talking about the various conflicting nuances here. It seems that while the suggestion is that he was sexually abused by this methodist minister, this man was also somewhat of a mentor to him and encouraged him in James was theatrically inclined and was interested in performance and bullfighting apparently was an interest of this minister and he kind of passed that on to James. So what was going on there? Throughout James things live. Those sort of four things. So what do we have about the speed, the acting, the bullfighting sorry things? They're forever in his life. They're things that he's constantly involved with. So this guy clearly had a big effect on his life. Well, I guess there is four things because the fourth thing is also the abuse and the relationship. Right. There's a couple of lines here, Katie, as well. So this may be throws a little bit more light on this very strange, disturbing relationship. There is something that James Dean is supposed to have said to the minister doctor the weird when he was in his teens, which is, I'm evil, aren't I?.

"james dean" Discussed on Death of a Film Star
"There are three images we've got to talk about when we talk about jimmy dean the first one black and white because it's a black and white time he's a new york times square but there's no glamour hair. It's winter rain. Coming down bouncing off the dock pavement shiny on the black metal railings. Jimmy's in black two along woolen jacket colours high up around his cheeks suit trousers. Taxi old brown shoes. These clothes will be famous. There'll be look for everyone in years to come a style but never quite fades so. It's about the clothes but it's not not really is how he is inside them. Hans stuffed in his pockets shoulders hunched against the cold hair big and thick and swept back. But missy like he doesn't care he never does anything to it but pussies hands through the city behind is to see missed around the buildings towers lost in the clouds. His silhouette on the pavement blurred. It's like all the lights in the world is on him. He's grinning glancing up at the clouds sky. Cigarettes hanging out the corner of his mouth. Okay the second one. He's on the movie poster. Bright colors for wide-screen world. A red wind cheater unzipped. Halfway a white t shirts underneath bluejeans hair swept back again. He looks like a contradiction angry but vulnerable staring out like he's challenging you but lost to a man muscles and form a kids. Is these images the time square one. The movie won they posters on teenagers walls student. Wolves t shirts and mugs and magazine covers. The everywhere still preferred image. You won't have seen is a nineteen fifty four posts spider. A car built for pure speed for breaking limits for danger. It's a beautiful car spider. Police silva like a jet fighter numb curved wheel arches but this spider. This one looks like it's been stamped on like someone's picked it up and crushed it in their fist. The bonnet is pushed back on itself. The wheels twisted sideways. The doors buckled and broken. It's not silver anymore tin foil. This is the car of james dean. This is where it all ends for this beautiful boy for this rebel looking for a cause where it all ends when it's barely begun because he's only twenty four. He's only made three films and only one of them has actually come out when he dies and something strange happens in the aftermath. A kid who not many cared about when he was alive becomes a star a ghost in his own future. A man who never grows up sixty five years on his estate still makes five million dollars a year from his image from the figure in the wool overcoat in times square from the teenager in the red wind. Cheater and blue jeans from the man with that stare angry but vulnerable his challenging year but lost to.
Real vs Urban Legends
"This podcast was inspired by mike. Who sent me an email. Asking are true mysteries of the pacific northwest. Nothing more than urban legends inspired by a book. I checked out from the rogue valley metaphysical library and trying to answer that question. The book was written by an authority. Who shall remain nameless. The book contains some events that are no more than a figment of someone or an urban legend. Like the dog that ate a tiny cell foam and every time someone called stomach would rain. Some were started by celebrities like mickey rooney claiming that he had influence walt disney to call his cartoon mouse mickey mouse. Then there's urban legend about elvis presley giving a harley davidson motorcycle to actor james dean. Well sorry. none of these happened before. I reveal my favorite urban legends. I need to explain how i separate real and true from something invented by a person with an ulterior motive or an urban legend occasionally. I do find a witness or participant to an event that can't be explained away and are willing to talk about it but that's the exception not the rule. Most people are reluctant. Admit that they saw ghost or heard strange laughter when they were home alone for fear of being ridiculed. When event is brought to my attention or intrigued by a story on the internet my search for sources begins. I'll start with the photograph of a pterodactyl that appeared on the internet that allegedly dates back to the american civil war in eighteen. Sixty four courting to the story behind the mystery. Image giant flying creature was shot down by soldiers around eighteen sixty four. near the city of vicksburg. The story says it's soldier said the creature was like some kind of unknown bird monster in a surprising. Twist of the story. A second photograph appeared on the internet. That showed a similar scene. A pterodactyl surrounded by men in front of a barn. Now the people. I talked to when i contacted. Authorities said several newspapers in virginia said that one photograph in front of the barn was fake. Now if you drop me. A line kit k. chrome g mail dot com. I'll send you a copy of the two photographs. You can decide for yourself in my research. I found that the photograph of the pterodactyl matched one. That was seen by somebody in eugene oregon just a few years ago about twenty eleven

L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club
"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau. Natalie, wood reading a role for the same film at the age of sixteen. When able with a direct. Ray Hotel. She got the part Johnny Depp said, he'd made love to Kate Moss and every single one of the chateau sixty three rooms and their Zeppelin might have done something similar to just supposed to be not a waste of the same girlfriends. Used to push their groupies around on drinks, trolleys, killing two birds with one stone I suppose. Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

Sung Kang reveals the fight to make 'Better Luck Tomorrow'
"Sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer
Panic in the Streets
"We're discussing panic in the streets starring. Richard Would Mark Paul. Douglas Barbara Bel Getty's Jack Talents. Zero mastel directed by Eliah Kazan. This is the now playing. Co-host who's fond of Shishkabob Arnie Stewart? And this the CO host. Who Likes High Foreheads Jacob? Well we hope everybody at home is healthy and safe and likely quarantined. No matter where you're listening to us from the world. Yeah at the moment of recording. We are all separated apart. Watching the news is one of the shows that we've taped since this pandemic has hit America. We are hearing reports. There are over sixty thousand cases in America by the time this airs. Who knows but we are thinking about this pandemic and checking in with you. You guys told us you were interested in watching movies about viruses. I don't know about that you know I can understand why some people might be like. I want to turn that off. I don't WanNa think about that. It's scary to contemplate when you turn on the news these days. Yeah but people are I think indulging in it in some ways entertainment as of this recording contagion is the number four movie on Itunes and it has been for weeks and outbreak is in the top twenty five and let's face it. We had to kind of fill out our schedule. The new mutants is punted for the sixth time or something but James Bond got moved black widow. The new saw film fast and furious nine and just a couple days ago when we're recording. This wonder woman. Eighty four half of our schedule for the spring has no release date anymore. Yeah I thought it was going to be a super busy month person July and lots of new releases and now we don't know yes and we didn't really necessarily know how to approach virus movies. Either there are a lot of them and we've covered some of them and you can go find those in the archives. Twenty eight days later and I am legend. All the stand. I did a list. I wanted to see how many we've really done if people wanted to do. A full now. Playing virus retrospective. There's the I am legend trilogy. Starting with the last man on earth in nineteen sixty four. Yeah then Omega Man in seventy one. There's the stand from ninety. Four twelve monkeys. That counts right. Nine Hundred Ninety five definitely twenty eight days later two thousand and two resident evil also two thousand two twenty eight weeks later as well. Yep Yep rise of the planet of the apes and then its two sequels but rise. Came Out in twenty eleven. Dare I add it in the name of the King Two worlds. It might make you sick watching it. And there was someone plotting to release a virus. Yes and they did. That's the thing it's not if they were blinded they released it in the Kingdom of EB World War Z. And Day of the dead bloodline. Yeah I think what's different here because we do want to be sensitive. We're not doing the sensational Zombie outbreak. Type films I mean. We talked about all kinds of viral outbreaks. And we really wanted something that that would speak to. What's going on right now. Though yeah I agree I mean I want a very clear eyed view if you WANNA laugh and enjoy camping ones no judgment but it might seem inappropriate to make light of something that seemed so severe the way I thought about it is. It's more interesting even though we're told. Time and again. These are unprecedented times. Mankind has always dealt with viruses. It has always been a part of our story and it was interesting to think that we could go back through the decades and look at the ways that it was presented on film and how the general public thought about contagion and viral outbreaks. And it makes sense that we would start with panic in the streets in one thousand nine hundred fifty film when we were discussing the Tom Cruise film losing it Stewart. You pointed out that in the eighties. A lot of movies were being set in the fifties because baby boomers who were in their formative years in the fifties grew up and now they were writing films in the eighties so setting them thirty years earlier while thirty years or specifically thirty two years before nineteen fifty. The Spanish flu was out there so a lot of people. My Ninety nine year old grandmother is regaling me endlessly with this coronas. Nothing you should have been there for the Spanish flu. Nine hundred eighteen. Not many of us can say that we were there for that but it does sound awful. It killed a whole lot of people. And Yeah that comes up a lot. But even in the nineteen fifties which is the start. I think of the movie. Sub-genre virus movies kickoff with panic in the streets. Nine hundred fifty s were a scary time. That looked a lot like. Are you know right. Now we're thinking very much about protecting our seniors because they're what's at risk for covert nineteen but back in the nineteen fifties. Hide your kids to let them go to the pool. Don't let him play with other kids because if you do they're gonNA get infantile paralysis. Polio I mean the scare was real people close pools. They didn't let their kids out. He was considered a summer plague. School's out and then all of a sudden just populations of people all throughout the United States would suddenly be hit hard and kids would suddenly lose motor function and only able to breathe when they were put into an iron lung interesting statistic by the way it sounds a lot like corona only two percent of the population actually develop the disease and most of those cases were mild. Most of the people were not left with long term disabilities but it did impact a whole generation. I know my mom believes. She was diagnosed with polio. My Dad's second wife had it. You know the thirty second president. Fdr The reason why he was in a wheelchair he got it when he was thirty. Nine years old. You didn't even have to be a kit. People were living like we were back in. One thousand nine hundred eighty. When this movie came out there was a real field. If you send your kid to the movie theater. He touched another kid. This could happen wasn't until one thousand nine hundred eighty five. When Jonas Salk released his cure which was very controversial he was doing things that scientists disapproved of in order to get that vaccine and it worked one monkey equaled six thousand doses of immunization. And before you know it all the kids got to lead the iron lung and come home and famously. He didn't even keep the patent. It's something that warms my heart. When I think about it he thought it was unethical for anyone to profit from this cure and so he gave it away for free so there was panic in the streets in nineteen fifty and I think the other thing that might have inspired. The onset of movies talking about viruses was the smallpox outbreak of nineteen forty. Seven guy got on a bus in Mexico. City drove all the way to New York City. Didn't feel so well with feverish. The whole time went to Bellevue hospital a week later he died. That was when the doctors realized. Oh my God is smallpox. They had had a vaccine for smallpox for over century but because smallpox was so rare like nobody was immune from it so suddenly everyone. That man had come in contact when the bus was infected and it was being you know across the country so everyone literally was being impacted. Kind of like we are now. Everyone potentially could have smallpox what the government did was they started a big PR blitz. They put out commercials on the radio. Tv magazines go to our free health clinics. They opened them up all over the country. Get your vaccines and so everyone could sing the songs everyone knew about shots and the necessity of getting immune to smallpox. Hollywood jumps on trends. If something is big in the news. They're going to come up with a movie about it and I think that's the movie we're here to talk about today. I'd never heard of panic in the streets until we decided we were going to cherry pick. What is what the best the most iconic virus movie from each decade the fifties through the teens. And you said this is the top one on the list I I. I never heard of this. Yeah nor have I. This is totally new to me. I knew by reputation but I've never seen it either. I do think most people know Elia Kazan. He was a director more famous. Maybe for Broadway the stage but he helped pioneer the method acting. So if you know Brando if you know James Dean if you know all of those leading light actors for the nineteen fifties Elliott. Kazan probably worked with them and got them to be the actors that they were. Yeah I did look up this director and and unfortunately Brando. Unless he's in Superman or the godfather I I got a blind spot for his films as well as James Dean so I recognize. Yeah Kazan oh he's he's actually done some big movies but this one isn't one of his that I've heard of
"james dean" Discussed on PodcastDetroit.com
"I I feel like he's having like I I'm I'm seeing his name pop up more and more and I think it's like people are really kind of just getting into it. 'cause he does. I don't know if you've read any of him or of him. Why people back for yeah Yeah he does. A lot of kind of traditionally horror books but they also get very weird so he it takes kind of like extreme horror and you know a traditional horror plot where it's like family moves into a new place. Weird things start happening. You know like but he infuses all this bizarro strange plot points in things that you never see coming and it always goes way further than I expected to ago like the third accidents books are always wild. And I'm like when I read him on like that is a guy who knows how to write a a crowd pleasing book like he knows who is audiences and he's just giving them exactly what they want. Because I'm audience. You know what I'm getting exactly what I want out of it and I'm like so when I read him. I'm like inspired in a way because I my writing is a little kind of all over the place and crazy and stuff and I'm Mike I need to crack that guy's code like in my own version of it though you know like like 'cause he's just got this way of storytelling that is it. Just just grants me. I'll read a four hundred page book in like a week. Yeah he's I. I have a couple of his books. I remember reading in His short story collection which is called the collection and some of the ideas in that. Like the there's a story about About the the founding fathers and how they were like it's basically like an aluminum body type thing where they're satanists that sacrifice Children are virgins or something but there was there was one story and I I'm ninety percent. Sure it was him. It might have been caught a la but there's one where it's about about this On this one particular highway. There's this James Dean movie where he throws a crowbar over the guardrail. And in this story Korea turns out that some women have found found went down to that part of the highway found the Crowbar. And there's like this little shed and they mounted the Crowbar on this. Serve this block of cement and they in when and now like women will go in there and lose their virginity to the Crowbar. That James Dean touched I and I know and it's it's like that is the and this and the stories from the perspective of this guy who stumbles across it and he sees these women. These girls doing this. And it's like it's like fuck that I can assume he saw that James Dean movie in probably thought like what happened to that Crowbar. He threw over the off the over the guardrail. But then it's like how the hell do you get to that data from there to to a woman like this cult of women using the Crowbar to lose their virginity. You know it's it's so there you go yeah it does. I mean that the stuff that you come up with is is equally out there. I would say it's it's Sorta the same thing where it's like. How the hell do you think that's just a short story? It's a little bit easier to flush something out a short story but there. There's some ideas where you're just it. Just Kinda makes me go. That's really impressive that you're able to make that work in such a satisfying and believable way in terms of the story. You know so you never go on like this doesn't make any sense. It's like Oh this makes sense within the context of the story so Trick trick is it's not making things make sense it's they have to make sense internally like the only thing that matters you know you watch a fast and furious movie and the jump A.. Car Out of the burs Khalifa on your life. Well that doesn't make any sense like you would just plummet to the ground and die that movie. You're like you know what their superheroes basically so none of this matters like. Yeah Yeah of course. It makes that they can do stuff like this. Do that was such a moment. That was so written for like I mean foreign audiences. Because he's like can just see the subtitle of like when he's like. Let's unleash the beast in a frigging floor and out of the out of the tallest building in the world. I was like. That's the sort of thing that you don't have to speak English to appreciate you know. That's that's a universal universal action movie scene for anybody you know. WHO's a big fan of these movies? But I was like I. I walked out of that movie actually never walked out of movies but I was. I was and it wasn't it wasn't because I hated it. It wasn't joy when that was happening. It wasn't because I hated it. It was it was because I had something that I was more interested in doing. Doing that came up and so I was like I. I know how this is going to end. I've seen this I'm I'm Gonna I'm just GONNA go. It's going to end the same way that other sixteen basically. Yeah Yeah they saved the day and then they have a few beers on route so but yeah man so a. I'll this'll be the last thing. Just tell us what you got. Is there anything you want to promote or anything you got coming up. Do you WanNa tell us about I don't have anything scheduled for release or anything like that. I'm working on getting some audio book versions of my books We'll be nice for you. Know people who have commutes and stuff and don't have a Lotta time to sit down and read But I did want to promote something specifically.

"Houston's morning news with Jimmy Barrett and sheriff prior it is a six oh nine now here on Houston's morning news alright here's an actor who's been gone for sixty four years poised to make a comeback James Dean hi yeah James Dean no east of Eden I mean if you study bill my mood you gotta go back a long long ways he died in a car accident sixty four years ago but he will be starring in a new movie co starring in a new movie sixty four years after his death a production company called magic city got the rights to his image for the late actor's the state they planned to bring him to the silver screen thanks to C. GI so they're gonna create version of James Dean and they're gonna hire somebody to do an impression of him due to his voice and he'll be starring in the Vietnam War epic co starring in a movie that's interesting by the way the director of the film said he's a little surprised that people think that it's awful and shameful and the backlash she's getting from Hollywood on this so far I'm guessing a lot of actors are very much alive or resenting the fact that they're bringing back somebody for the dead sixty four years later in a role that they might be able to to do I'm not sure how I feel about this at any rate he says it's not a marketing ploy although it sure sounds like a marketing ploy the leaves in the sleep there's enough people of a certain age I guess that miss James Dean they want to go see the movie are just going to go out of curiosity six eleven divert traffic.
Tech resurrects James Dean for a new movie
"The Hollywood reporter reporter ran an article. That says James Dean will be brought back on film now. James Dean has been dead since one thousand nine hundred fifty five also. The role is considered the secondary lead. So you're you're going to get a lot of. CG James Dean. The film is called a finding Jack by the CEO of CMG worldwide which represents Danes family said to quote. This opens up a whole new opportunity for many of our clients who are no longer with us Ben just because we have this technology. Should we not doing this. Is this right. Is it right Look we'll see if the movie is successful because unfortunately if it is successful you'll see a lot of copycatting adding that's how Hollywood. That's how Hollywood works. That's how a lot of entertainment works a problem that I have here from reading the Hollywood reporter story is that They said they spent a lot of time. Trying to find the right secondary lead for this part and then determined that a CGI. James Dean was their rest option. I'm not buying that. Yeah I mean how bad is your talent pool such that you can't go like hey possible. James Franco's pretty close like he was kind of looks like extraordinaire to the role. Maybe maybe could find an unknown but yes deficit. Sounds like a gimmick but the idea that the the talent agencies like Oh a lot of our guys are happened happened to be dead we can bring him back. It just sounds like a terrible terrible idea so if you want to look at this very cynically to this has the possibility going back to here. James Franco example of avoiding having to pay a very large sums of money to living well known actors and instead putting a completely really unknown person in a CGI out fed. And then slapping a James Dean skin on them and then calling it a day. It is entirely possible that they would save a lot of money doing this. But I'm not really sure what the dollars and sense are here. So you're thinking that there's going to be a mo cap man or mo cap person running around on stage with whoever the actually does wouldn't wouldn't mo cap motion capture bow cap okay. I'm totally with it. So they are hiring an actor to do the voice though of James Dean so the question. This is a terrible idea. I don't I don't love it and We've we've certainly seen other examples of this before but certainly not not for a lead character. Like for instance. Carrie Fisher is a good example where they did a young version of Carrie Fisher for one of the Star Wars Movies but Young Carrie Fisher didn't exist anymore. She was his older Carrie Fisher at that point so it's in that part it's unavoidable and I would have been I'm more okay with that example I duNno. I just really really curious what this is going to do could this. CG James Dean Win an academy award if is it possible. You're hurting my head I okay. Let's let's let's. Let's talk with that aside.

I guess vote in favor of waxed assholes that happens to young kids all the time. Is this one no way no. Oh why don't just sliding off waxed assholes or somebody in my diet there you go and finally. What's a myth was it? Sounds people think is true. You know to be false and I think everything I could think about was like it's I don't know I just don't know anymore for what is it. Just don't know. I think that this the sharks are dangerous. Okay not all sharks not auto sharks. Yeah right some. Do you like sharks I love. I love sharks animals a I love the animals. Get a bad rap. Oh Wow an the animal. It's like people don't like him. I like Oh yeah that elephant named Osama Bin Laden. I like it. Is there a favorite talk. You have a favorite shark probably the true shark. The whale sharks. We'll start is so cool. What about Hammer Heads Hammer? Heads are pretty great. Yeah Yeah Remember Shark Bites. Oh my God. He came into the best flavor. I used to always remember when Eddie Shark Bites. Just leave the great whites for the end. The best flavor I thought about shark bites in a long time. I think about him every day by his that echo cooler it struck by. It's still available. I'm sure because I mean fruit by the foot still. I have a feeling a lot of those things I mean. It'd be funny if like you say they're on kid like what Mike Rampage Sharks. Oh I don't know because when you google shark bites some mm should I don't WanNa see Shark Bites. I got an actual myth of. Oh Wow you. Cut down a guava tree and grind the stump. It's not dead Ah think it's dead but it's next thing you know it's coming up everywhere. It's coming to the fucking driveway really So what happened. You gotTA unruly Guatri. Oh Oh yeah I had no idea that invasive oh that's incredibly invasive clue. I can't believe it. I'm just blown away by the persistence of this root stock in the ground. Yeah just can't kill them can't kill the GUAVAS. UNKILLABLE GUAVA CAn't kill you guava all right. Let's check in real quick with this poll that asked the question. Why become an influence or do you want to even do you want to become an inflate asked? Asked fucking two thousand people from age. Thirteen to thirty eight. Just you get Gen Z.. And millennials do you. Would you be interested in influencing think navy. Six percent appeal said. I'm down to try out. Some influencing eighty six but only twelve percent of the respondents considered themselves to be influencers. Okay okay literally eighty six and twelve. Isn't that one hundred. No that's ninety eight okay there you go just check. Wow that was cool. I just literally the Did well how can we fail. Hopelessly failed it's close Chez Soi. I don't know if that's I don't I think the question was would you want to or are you. But I'm just saying that group to only twelve percent. Consider yourselves to be influencers when you look at the reasons why the biggest reason the driver for Gen Z.. Was To make a difference which was very interesting? millennials only forty eight percent. were interested to make a difference when it came to flexibility. Not like out flexible hours. That's the thing where millennials were most interested in the flexible hours of interest. Oh no millennial Gen Z.. Was Interested Anderson Making a difference. They were pretty much there. Were there were a lot of. I mean. There were slight differences between the two but fifty percent of Gen Z.. Were only interested for money. Fifty eight percent Eh. millennials are interested because of money and then when it came to fame less than twenty percent for both. They weren't interested in the fame. I I saw puzzle. What's going on here okay? I don't think this is generational generational so much as literally the age of the people being asked right right. Yeah you're if you're under eighteen you do want to make a difference right 'cause because you don't you haven't lived without a job for ten years. Yes and make a difference in my fucking banker. I WANNA make a difference too but I I need anew. WE'LL HELP I. Yeah why think at the end of the day though to just because I think it's a combination of not. No one has a realistic. Like plan. Or a good vision vision of what their future can be workwise and then influencing seems to be the one that we're most bombarded with if you're really on social media that like that has become like like like the new rockstar. He didn't serve as baby boomers. Right like my dad would have been like I want to be fucking Rockstar. Yeah Yeah and that's why the eighties like everyone's all fucking Rockstar. That was that shit whereas now it's like I just wanted fucking travel for free. Yeah maybe get some free drinks. Yeah look like. I'm having a good time for a living headquarters. I'm sure that's what everyone Meraj of influencers. But I guess when you also look at. How like advertisers are slowly realizing sizing traditional should isn't working that maybe that is just like I mean because we're also in this most millennials engines e were of this idea of we're commodifying ourselves now bray and and that's part of that process? I guess what technical because money seems to be such a big part of it is. What's the average income of an influence? Your her gender. How big you are? What does it influence? How do you become an influx? At what point are you on an influencer right. We're all influence influence. If you think about it. Yeah I'm an under the influence to upload videos and we fucked up snatch uh-huh scrap champ But the fame part. I realized it's interesting to see that not as many people because like I don't know when I was a kid I thought I wanted. It'd be famous as fuck like I was like. Yeah fucking sick and then as you get older around more people whose lives are like that. You're like I just don't I wanNA talk to anybody and I don't want anybody like Bela who do sober. Yeah although the that just seems like also like what you would edme it publicly like the famous. Yeah No. It's it's not about fame difference. I WANNA travel to exotic Arctic locations to make a difference. I WanNa go to the Maldives and be sick as bungalow hotels some. I heard something years maybe last year. About how. There's some Maldives Hotel Bungalow Floating hotel owner. Who is like stop asking me for free stays influences? Yeah sure no-one done. Everyone's die. Think if you distilled the influencers life down to one photo. It's a person doing like the hand behind them. I'm like rolling the camera with them towards like a plunge pool in the DEV's with like a big hat on. Yeah and in a way back this this guy one of those things already so hit me up for that Spahn Con All right we're GONNA take a quick break. We'll be right back apple. TV Plus Midst Kessler. My Co host was fired today. She saw let me under the bus. Jennifer Aniston this is going to be a new era for the morning. Show Reese Witherspoon. You are the reason. Broadcast News is what it is and Steve Carell L. Network that walking me out where news program. Let's open people's eyes. Things are going to be quite different from now on the morning show on Apple. TV A B plus opened the apple TV APP to start watching now subscription acquired. And we're back and it's time to check in with the impeachment inquiry. I'm talking about impeaching this great. So Gordon Sunlen. Who is is the guy who donated a million dollars and became the ambassador to the EU and then came out very strongly in opposition to the very the implication that Donald Trump was Exchanging no quid pro quo quid pro. Quo that yeah notion Russian. But then couple days ago he he came back and was like Oh quid. Pro Quo right right okay. No so that has so. Yeah that for sure. What did he think they say? I think the problem is right. Prior to this like with the Muller stuff a lot of people were testifying defying public. So it's kind of easy to coordinate people's testimony but when everything's behind closed doors it keep people you know. They weren't quite sure because one sunland went out and everyone anyone else contradicted him. He's like Oh fuck okay fuck. I think he realizes to at first he was like a great fall. Guy For trump. That like yeah. I don't know what this guy was doing doing. But then this Guy Gordon on he's I think he's in like hotels or something. Yeah he realized. Basically there's life after this racist shit show Raza whereas was like maybe I shouldn't totally fuck in cell phone like this in light of Congress and then yes ended the no quid pro quo argument pretty much as he was questioned. They're saying there were demands. Weren't there that investigation. Take Place of two thousand sixteen or Barisno ultimately those word demands were they not his answer ultimately. Yes but I think you said ambassador that over time things got more and more insidious I think. Those were your words. It started out started out with no condition and then there was a condition for investigation instigation into the corruption and then there was a condition of an investigation into two thousand sixteen and Burma and then on the call itself it became clear. The condition was investigation of two thousand. Sixteen in the Biden's I I think you described that is becoming more and more insidious correct that's correct Then literally went on where the US has basically been like yet that happened and then essentially said I know. We're oh speaking individually with Mister Mac. WHO's a Ukrainian official where I said resumption of? US aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks so it was just he he just had his memory jot cat it. Full jarred Ogbyn Jar. Oh Shit I'll just put a hold on. I just remembered as MMA. Oh Perez masseur. I thought you said Barista Ballet Career starbucks you guys are over. You're talking ooh Biden works as a Barista is. I'm sorry I haven't had my coffee yet guys. Don't even talk to me. I don't even talk to me because when we did that other thing I hadn't had my coffee yet. Yes sorry. I'm able to say just about anything until I get my coffee. Disclosure hoosier needed my cough. Okay so yeah. That has basically put an end to the no quid pro quo argument but so has not stopped. All Republicans Gins have then turned around and been like. Oh sorry we were on well. It's funny if you think about it prior to this right when the story first came out it it's interesting to see how Republicans are threatening that needle needle because they thought I'm sure they didn't know what the full facts were improbably. Figured how whatever we can dance around this thing because on Fox and friends in September They said this. Because if the president said I'll give you the money but you got to investigate Joe Biden. Hat is really off the rails wrong right but if it's something else you know it would be nice to know what it is. Oh until today when they had Kellyanne Conway on and they sort of like what. What do we do Kelly? ooh In the thing he said there was and she's like well there was no quid. Pro Quo wait really. That's what she said but again. That's because they're they're very narrow L. About how they're looking at it they're really holding onto Kurt volkers testimony. Where he said he was not aware of a quid?.

Where I watched the ghost of the late singer ROY orbison sort of appear out of thin air like a ghost. And it was pretty weird. It was a hologram and the whole idea was that some tech savvy guys had figured out a way to recreate somebody who's been dead since nineteen eighty eight put him on a stage have him sing a bunch of songs in charge fifty to one hundred dollars for that who's buying? Let me tell you all about it on today's episode of talking tech. So last year a company called base hologram took ROY orbison on the road starting off in Europe where they sold out shows even at that steep ticket price he performed with the London Symphony Orchestra than they brought him to the United States and sales were so so I wonder why. By now, the organizers have not given up there doubling down and they're going to pair, ROY orbison. Whose course best known for sing songs. Like only the lonely and oh Pretty Woman with buddy, Holly. He's the guy also from the nineteen fifties. Best known for Peggy sue not fade away in many other songs. The two of them are going to share the Bill as holograms now. I personally wouldn't pay two dollars to see them in concert. It's an interesting technique. I applaud them for the technology.
