Randall Terry Goes to the 1988 Democratic Convention, Lands in Jail
"So take us back to 1988. You decide to go to the democratic convention in Atlanta and you put in jail, keep tell that story again. All right, so I'm on CNN crossfire with Pat Buchanan and Mark green. Mark green says, what's next? And I say we're going to Atlanta to the democratic invention. We had no plan. Nothing in place, no infrastructure, nothing. So my staff, they just went crazy and we started sending out letters and making phone calls begging people. Please come to Atlanta and join us and go to jail for three or four days during the convention. So we get there. There's a 137 of us that go on the first morning of the convention. We go to an abortion clinic and we sit down and we start praying, the police arrest us, and when they take us into custody, they, they said, what's your name? And we said, all the men said, my name is baby John Doe. In other women said, my name is baby Jane Doe. Because we wanted to identify with the babies who had no name. So nobody had identification with them known had any money. We knew that they would hold us. And they had this huge warehouse facility with cots. They brought us in, they put us there, and they thought, okay, well, they're being smart, Alex, they'll give us their name and we wouldn't do it. So after a couple of days in this big place, they put us in the key road prison facility. Which was another mistake on their part because they gave us an entire wing of the prison. And during the day, the men and women could hang out in a big area together, and we sang and prayed and had preachers in jail, we had prayer meetings, and Bible studies, 24/7. I mean, literally all day long. And while we're there, the police are negotiating with us and they say, okay, on Friday, at the end of the week, we'll just let you all go. Time served. Well, the attorney for the do versus bolt in case. Now we all are familiar with roe versus wade, but it was actually two cases. Roe versus wade, and Doe versus Bolton. The dough case was critical because it defined health of a woman. So when they stay a woman has an abortion for her health, that can mean financial health, emotional health, up to the day of birth. So the attorney for dough versus Bolton, Marjorie Pitts haymes, she said to the city council and to the police, don't you dare let these people go without giving their names. So we found out that she was the problem. And man, you know, I'm in my 20s. I've got a bunch of young advisers around me. And I thought, you got to be kidding me. You picked the fight with the wrong people. So I went on pat Robertson, CNN. They were letting me do interviews from jail. They would bring cameras up to the fence and let me do interviews or do them on the phone.
Hearing Jesus: Daily Bible Study
Fresh update on "john doe" discussed on Hearing Jesus: Daily Bible Study
"Of plowing through and not understanding, we're going to meditate and really study God's word. At the end of the week on Saturday, every week there will be a weekly wrap up, and that episode talks about this method more in detail, but I want you to start getting into the practice of meditating in God's word, and that's why we do it this way, and you will notice that I use different translations depending on the week, depending on the day, to help you broadening your opportunity for learning from different translations. So John chapter two, one through 11, on the third day, there was a wedding in Cana of the mother of Jesus was there, and both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, they have no wine. And Jesus said to her, woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come. His mother said to the servants, whatever he says to you, do it. Now there were six stone waterpots set there for Jewish custom of purification, containing 20 to 30 gallons each. Jesus said to them, fill the waterpots with water. So they fill them up to the brim. And he said to them, draw some out now and take it to the head waiter. So they took it to him. When the head waiter tasted the water, which had become wine and did not know where it came from, but the servants who had drawn the water knew the head waiter called the bridegroom and said to him, every man serves the good wine first. And when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now. This beginning, this beginning of his signs, Jesus did in Cana of Galilee and manifested his glory and his disciples believed in him. So yesterday we took a look at Mary within this context of her role and her relationship with Jesus. And today we're going to take a look at the setting that we find our story, just this context of the historical and the cultural setting. It says on the third day, there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there and both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding. So remember, this is the first miracle that we see in the scriptures that Jesus does, at least in public. I think it is significant that it is a wedding. So weddings within the culture of Jesus time were a little bit different than how we celebrate today. Weddings were basically a week long feast. And so many of the close friends and family, all of those people and all of the extended families will be invited to come and celebrate. And so the fact that this wedding is being held in Cana, it's a small area of Galilee, it tells us that there was most likely a personal connection between the family of Jesus and the family of the bride or the groom. And so it says that the mother of Jesus was there, both Jesus and the disciples were invited to the wedding. Because John does refer to Mary as first, being present first, and then adds the detail that Jesus and the disciples were also there, we realize that probably both Jesus and Mary both had this personal connection to the family. And maybe Mary was there out of obligation, or maybe she was serving or perhaps she I kind of envision it that she was like this beloved woman that many were in relationship with and she was invited to kind of come celebrate as a close family friend. Jesus had not yet begun his public ministry. So he was likely there out of family obligation or even an obligation to his mom, or just a community obligation because of the relationship he had with them. But the point is, is this is not some anonymous couple, at least on some levels, there was a personal concern about this, this new young marriage. And so when we think about weddings, and marriage, I guess, in light of this broader context of the entirety of scripture, remember, we talked about that yesterday, we realize that weddings throughout scripture hold significant value. In the Old Testament, we see weddings as a picture of this relationship between God and Israel. And then in the New Testament, we see weddings as a picture of this relationship between Christ and the church. So think about what we said yesterday, Jesus does not do anything without intention, everything he does is intentional. And so the setting that he chose to reveal his very first miracle, at least to those that are serving, it is not unintentional that he chose to do it at a wedding. And that's going to be important as we go throughout the week. But then we come to Mary's words. The first words we see Mary speak in this narrative is they have no wine. And it's interesting because that can at first glance seem flippant or like she's complaining or, you know, there's something that she's trying to pressure Jesus to do. And like we mentioned before, I want you to get some perspective. These feasts could last for a week and there's usually an untold number of guests because with the extended families coming, they can kind of guess. But this was not the the days of, you know, a quick phone call or a text message. This is really hard to predict exactly how many people were going to come. So they did their best guess to guess how much wine they were going to need. But still, even even though they did this all the time, there was this ambiguity on the exact amount of what they were going to need. But the unwritten rule of the culture was that if they ran out of wine, it would bring shame onto their family. And so what I think we see happening here is Mary understanding that because she had a personal connection to this family, remember this act of running out of wine would bring disgrace upon the groom and this new marriage. And so what Mary saw was somebody that she cared about, somebody she had personal concern for in this place where they were getting ready to be disgraced. And I'm sure, as probably most of you can attest, that probably brought some fear or some anxiety or some worry on the behalf of the people that she cared about, because that's what we do as women. And fear so and anxiety and concern, what do we see Mary do with those emotions? She brings them to Jesus. They have no wine. She didn't need to explain to Jesus why she was concerned. He knew. But that's the thing about Jesus. He always knows. And our job is not to explain to Jesus all the reasons that we are upset when things go wrong. Our job is to bring those things to him. There's so much to unpack there. But what I want you to do is I want you to bring it to him. Because he knows. He always knows. We're going to take a quick break and when we come back, we're going to finish up talking about how everything Jesus does is intentional. Stay tuned. Believe it or not, next Sunday is Father's Day. And I recently found out about the coolest, most unique gift for your father or husband or really any father figure in your life. It's called MyFrontPageStory .com and the way it works is you either talk to one of the writers on the phone for like 10 minutes or you reply to a few email questions and then they write the most amazing story all about how special he is. It's beautiful, framed, and it looks like it's the cover of the newspaper with pictures of him and the kids. It's great because every dad loves a newspaper so why not give them that front page treatment that they deserve with a keepsake gift that will be hanging up in the house forever. I first heard about MyFrontPageStory .com from my daughter, who's actually interning for the company this summer, and now I think it's one of the coolest gift ideas I've seen in a really long time. Use the code HJ10 to get 10 % off the best Father's Day gift out there at MyFrontPageStory .com. Again, it's HJ10 to get the discount at MyFrontPageStory .com. And oftentimes, you know you're chasing happiness, but you don't know that God is the best way to achieve the happiness you're looking for. And so I was trying to end my suffering by sinning, but I only ended up sinning my way into more suffering. That was Grammy winner, Lecrae, unpacking his testimony on The Walk, a podcast for worshipers. Join us weekly to hear artists, songwriters, worship leaders, filmmakers, and other creatives tell stories in the form of a devotional. The Walk can be found on LifeAudio .com or your favorite podcast platform. And then this is our heart check for today. Is there an area of your life that you were hesitant to bring to Jesus or when you do, it's accompanied by like this justification and this explanation of that's what I do, all these reasons why we have all these thoughts or feelings. That's not what we see Mary do. Mary's ability to take her concern to Jesus speaks something to us. And I want you to take a few minutes if you need it for your heart check to let the Lord reveal something to you as you think about this. Are there areas in your own life that you need to take to Jesus? Maybe you've been afraid to take those things to Jesus. Friend, he already knows. He always knows. Go ahead and pause it if you need to because that's what this is about is taking these things to Jesus. Now if your heart is clear, I want to look at just a couple more things for us to think about today. After Mary takes her concern to Jesus, I want you to pay careful attention to how he responds to her and how he responds to us. He says, woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come. And at first glance, it's like, ouch, man, that's not what I expected. I expected Jesus to be like, hey, all right, we got it. And at first response, that feels like it stings a little because if we aren't careful, we'll take our own opinion of this interaction and kind of interpret it based on our lens instead of the lens of what actually happened. Because remember, it's important to read it as through the lens of the original audience and the original writer. And so I have often thought, OK, well, Jesus is just putting her in her place. And I think I've heard that taught a lot of times. But when Mary comes to Jesus with her concern, it's a valid reason. And Jesus knows that what we see him doing is he is responding. He is not reacting. So when Jesus calls Mary woman, that is not a sign of disrespect, as it would be in our culture. Like if my kids call me woman, I mean, that is disrespectful. And I mean, they won't or they better not. But that in that culture, the way that that translates is him calling her dear one. And we see this a couple of different places in scripture, but he's saying dear one. And that simple detail changes the tone of this conversation from like rebuff to one of respect. The response that Jesus gives her, it is a term of respect when he says that. But it's also doing something. It's a shift in their relationship that we see for the first time. So for many years, we talked about this yesterday. Mary was an authority in the life of Jesus. And after Joseph's death, she was likely one of the only authorities in the life of Jesus. And so because mothers were responsible for the spiritual formation of their kids and their behavior, teaching Jesus the Torah as his mother. Often, her authority over him dictated his response. And what was likely happening is she was expecting that when she took her concern to him, he would respond because that's a clear picture of their relationship. Except now we're at a turning point because Jesus says, my hour has not yet come. So what does this mean? This means that now Jesus is responding to God's authority in his life. As the only authority. And the timing and the will of the Father is now taking precedence over Mary's will. The role and the responsibility that was given to Mary by God was also taken away by God. And I want you to think about that for a minute. Mary has to transfer her authority. And what does she do? She surrenders. She says, OK, whatever he says to you, do it. That's her direction. I don't know that I have responded with that kind of grace. In fact, my teenager is getting ready to go to college soon. And I definitely know I'm not responding with that kind of grace. But I want you to take some time to reflect on what this means in your own life. How have you handled seasons where your authority was coming to an end? And are you in that season right now? Some of us are. But how can you recognize it when you are? And when God calls us to lay something down, are we obedient the way that Mary is? When we get the answer that we don't expect, when we get a response that we don't expect, Mary shows up with this example, this incredible example of faith and surrender. Because when Jesus speaks his authority to her, she hears. Even when we don't know the answer or the outcome, we can trust the one that does. God, I pray for my friends today that if they are struggling with laying down authority or surrendering something to you. Lord God, I pray that you would intervene in such a way that they would not only trust you, but they would respond in faith and obedience. Lord God, I thank you for the example we see in Mary. I pray that throughout our day, as we meditate on your word, that you would remind us that you know, that you always know. Thank you, Lord God, in Jesus' name. Amen. I know you have been frustrated with being confident in how to tell the difference between hearing from God and wondering if it's your own voice. Listen, I know, I've been there myself. That's why I wrote the Bible study, She Hears, Learning to Listen to Jesus. This is a six -week study that takes you through the book of John, looking at six women in the life of Jesus. It also teaches the color method of Bible study, which helps you to learn how to really understand the scriptures. I include lots of cultural and historical information, and it really makes these familiar passages of scripture just come alive. This is a great study to do on your own, to do with some girlfriends or even some teenage girls, and it will help you really gain the confidence in how to hear from the Lord and set you up with some tools that will stay with you long after the study is over. You can find that on my resources page at shehears .org, where there are also some really good resources to help you in your spiritual growth. I pray that they are a blessing for you. I want to take just a second to thank the team at Life Audio for their partnership with us on the podcast.

"john doe" Discussed on Filmspotting
"Romance doesn't work is because we're less interested in that than in Anne's internal conflict over this thing that she has created has grown beyond her control and is there still something she can do to hold it back. Where does she lie? Obviously, stanwyck is capable of exploring all of those avenues too, and when she gets to in little moments, she's fantastic, but the movie is also trying to squeeze in this romance. And so that takes away from her opportunity to do some of those more interesting things. I'm glad you mentioned the convention, the John Doe convention with those crowd sequences because that is just incredibly visually stunning and for a long time I was thinking, man, I wish I wish this movie was doing a few more interesting things with the camera or with the production design or anything to kind of liven it up visually and then we get these incredible crowd scenes that do turn the weather as part of this very frightening. When that crowd is manipulated so easily and turning on a dime and just frothing over just a froth, you know and we've talked about the political implications of the time. Here's where I think meet John Doe was, you know, very pertinent to today. And obviously, as I said, everyone's going to bring their own political readings and stripes to the movie. It was hard for me not to watch with alarm and think of a certain former president as this DB Norton figure. And I don't like to use his name. I just like to call going back to our jaws review. I like to call him the raft thief in jaws, but Norton here struck me very much like that raft thief, although here, what we've got today, it's almost a Norton who didn't need to find a Willoughby because this guy we're stuck with, he can play both parts. He can play, you know, the behind the scenes and be out in front whipping up these populist crowds into a froth. So I think for those tensions that capra was playing with here way back when and maybe different ones that risk skin was playing with. For me, they certainly still resonate today. All right, practical glennie, here it is. Tomorrow night, before a crowd of 15,000 people are talking over a nationwide radio hookup. John Doe will announce the formation of a third party. The third party. Is the John Doe party. The border entirely to the interests of all the giant dolls all over the country, which are practically means 90% of the voters. He will also announce the third parties candidate for the presidency. A man whom he personally recommends a great humanitarian, the best friend, the John Doe's have. Mister DB Norton. Yes. People have been trying to turn this material. Into a stage production, a musical, there's even been an attempt to turn it into an opera, and you can almost start to see it and hear it in those forms, just kind of by thinking about how where this story does go by that convention climax because that's a big scene. It's not just like a three 5 minute scene. It's like it's like we're the whole third act is going. It's what happens afterwards that gets wobbly, but you know, as camper said in his autobiography, which you say, this will be with meet John Doe, the writer, risk it and he were trying to quote astonish the critics with contemporary realities, the ugly face of hate, the power of uninformed bigots in red, white and blue shirts, the agony of disillusionment, and the wild dark passions of mobs. And that is not it happened at night, you know, that's not mister deeds goes to town. That's not even mister Smith goes to Washington, which also gets very, you know, the extremes to which the story goes to, you know, at the end of Smith, mister Smith is, they go very far, but this went further. And it found a bit of an audience at the time, but people were people were already getting a little, I don't know if you're quite hit. It did not hit the audience's sweet spot. And the ending, you know, it was this was the happiest ending they could pull off without a completely undermining or reversing the entire picture we had just watched. But it's, I don't know. It's going to be a fascinating. It's a fascinating internal debate of a movie about how to end itself about what the political stance really is. And I guess there's no debate about it. It's just the quality of the acting from everybody, Cooper, stanwyck, everybody from Edward Arnold, James gleason. It's just, you know, capra had it was sort of a genius on casting and Stan does not let down. It's just that she doesn't have the major role you'd love her to have in this picture.

"And I think the content of most of them is compelling and adds to that political tension that you're talking about. I think this is a very hard film to read politically one way. You can do that and you can twist it to either attack your own beliefs or support your own political beliefs if you wanted to, but I think it's pretty complicated and looking at the different speeches, shows that, but at the same time, there are so many speeches in this thing. I mean, we get Brennan's helot speech about the enslavement of consumerism. Obviously we get multiple speeches from Cooper, the editor James gleeson has a great speech where he's drunkenly explaining what patriotism means to him. I love the content of that. Yeah, that's a great scene. Beautiful scene. It's so good, but you add all of these on top of each other and you do feel like you're being talked at quite a bit in this movie. Maybe the one that really dragged on and on was Regis to me as the soda jerk in this town they travel to and he talks about how they've started these John Doe clubs and it's revitalized his community. That one just seemed to go on and on and on. Well, mister Doe before we got through, I found out smithers is a swell egg, only he's pretty deaf, and that accounts for all the noises. And he says it's a shame how little we know about our neighbors. And then he got an idea. And he said, how's about inviting everybody someplace where we can all get together? Know each other a little better. Well, I'm feeling so good by this time I'm right for anything, so smithers goes around a neighborhood and biting everybody to a meeting at the schoolhouse and I tell everybody that comes in the store, including mister shore back on my boss. I'm talking to myself. So it wore me out a little bit because of its reliance on speeches and even when the material was good, some of those speeches delivered a harshness that something like the harshness you're describing. Yeah, yeah, no, that's a good way to put it. I think some of the speeches are wonderful. I think risking is a wonderful writer. I think the great occasion to kind of review meet John Doe for these purposes was also a reason for me to see for the first time I seriously and probably 40, maybe 35, 40 years, mister deeds goes to town, which is just fantastic. It's almost, it's almost a carbon copy, just in terms of the themes were addressing. It's what meet John Doe borrows the most from. And indeed, I think it's just all works kind of beautifully. And it's also, it's also not just played for comedy, but Cooper is wonderful and this is a different mechanical thing. I think capra and risk and the nation felt a little more profoundly uneasy God knows by 1940 when they were filming. And this whole question about, do we have? Do we actually have Nazi sympathizers in this country to the degree that it's going to, you know, people were wondering, well, you had half the essentially half the country, you know, historians will argue with the number. I don't know the percentage, but one part of the country saying stay out of the war. America first. And the other half were just sort of getting ready. We need to help our. We need to help out the rest of the world here with this rising Nazi menace and Mussolini in Italy and all of it. It's a really scared atmosphere. And the movie plays directly into that because by the end of that big the climactic scene where you're seeing the big John Doe convention, which is meant to bring everybody together and then in which John Doe, the Cooper character is going to endorse for president a third party candidate, DB Norton, and he hasn't read the speech in advance because he likes to keep it spontaneous, and that's the idea. And his throng of adoring fans turns into this ugly, vicious mob in the most kind of beautiful black and white studio rainstorm scene. So actually it was not this through. They filmed that scene in what was called Wrigley Field in LA. So it was an outdoor. They rigged up a big old ray machine for this baseball stadium in LA and, you know, capra writes it as autobiography, but I just love rain. He says, I love rain on screen. And that's a really powerful scene, but it's a movie that really makes you eat it. It really lays that character low, lower than he's ever laid any of his characters in any comparable film. You know, to the brink of suicide. And that's the whole premise of the picture. And the fact that they couldn't quite write their way out of that one and kept kept filming different headings to solve it. I don't know, I kind of love that though about a Josh too, because it's sort of lets you know that you had this, like you say, these sort of ideologically opposed collaborators, screenwriter, risk and the director capra, trying to work out some way to kind of resolve their ending, the story. And they couldn't do it, but that's the movies. It just doesn't, it doesn't go according to plan. And yet a lot of people really cherish meet John Doe for a lot of the reasons you've mentioned Cooper, just and look, back to Stan, and then all of a sudden. Back to stanway, yes, supporting role. The fact that but if you rewatch just some of the expository scenes in the first half hour, 40 minutes where you get in the setup, where she's the wrong newspaper columnist who's writing this column out of spite to get even. And then it turns into this unexpected subscription, some reader success and all that and kind of makes your career. But the way she handles the conflicted feelings about, you know, putting one over on the guy that she's, you know, the script tells us they're falling in love. We don't really see it in the script tells us that we don't really see a necessarily because it's not a movie about their love story. It's about bigger ideas. Stamina is just a master at spitting out pattern at that incredibly snappy. Let's take it back 8 years pre code pace. Just like spitting out the dialog. She's got great technical facility, great sincerity and a very easy touch. And that is the kind of thing you can rehearse an early 30s or 20s play today with really talented actors and they can rehearse for four weeks and play that play four 6 weeks and they really haven't captured the style that Stan would just do in her sleep. You know, amazing. Look genius. Now look, suppose there was a John Doe and he walked into this office. What would you do? Find him a job and forget about the whole business, I suppose, huh? Not me. I'd make a deal with him. Adele. Sure, when you get hold of us, that sounds babies. You don't drop it like a hot potato? Well, this is good for at least a couple of months. You know what I do? Between now and let's say Christmas one is gonna jump, I'd run a daily on. Starting with his boyhood, his schooling his first job. A wide eyed youngster facing a chaotic world. The problem of the average man of all the John doors in the world. Now, then comes the trauma. And she's also really good as you were hinting at at the conflicted moments later after Anne has gotten pulled into deep with Norton, who she is still the script writer for him, as he's making his moves toward political power, and she's writing what John Doe, what Willoughby is going to say, you know, I think that's why the

"I didn't. Well, you don't up here then. Well, the paper says there was some jobs around loose, thought there might be one left over. Had any schooling? Yeah? A little? What are you doing you work? I used to pitch. Baseball? Yeah. Someone wing went bad. Where'd you play? Bush leagues, mostly. How about family? Got me family? No. Oh, just traveling through, huh? Yeah. Me and a friend of mine. He's outside. Gary Cooper there with Barbara Stanwyck and James gleason in 1940 ones meet John Doe directed by Frank Capra. It's the fourth film in our summer of stanwyck marathon. It's also the second of three films in the marathon that were released in 1941. We've already talked about Preston Sturges, the lady eve. We will get to Howard hawks fall of fire. Also with Cooper next week, those two films Michael have reputations as screwball classics. I can personally vouch for eve. That one left me cockeyed as I said a couple of weeks ago, loved it. Meet John Doe, a bit of a weird one for both stanwyck and capra before we get into that. Give me your take on stanwyck in general. Michael, what'd you make of her as an actress? Oh my God. Oh jeez. I was late to appreciate just how damn good she is and so many in so many directions, but I think it's great that you're setting things up with people starting with baby face just because it is one of the sketch pre code movies ever and standard is so terrific in it. She just cuts right through anything that's everything that's kind of nuts and abrasive and out of date with this really amazing performance. And what she had this tough kid orphan from Brooklyn bounced around. She was a corinne at age 16 for ziegfeld follies, you know, I don't know how much you've dealt with that, but it's, you know, I mean, she's just a really kind of not an unusual sort of hard knock life as this actress to sort of just sort of works her way up and through into sound pictures. And it took a while for her to really kind of register just like it took a while for everybody Gable Cary Grant everybody of the time to kind of find themselves. But stanwyck had this unbelievable, easy, naturalistic sense. No big blood and thunder melodramatics stage trained, but not stage Y in any sense. She just feels utterly modern to me. And there's somebody described her appeal in two words that I think are on the money. Rough poignancy. That's what she's got. She's got a completely authentic, toughness, a very rough edge. But just somebody who can just look a character in the eye and know exactly how to play every minute every line, you know, I just, and I was late to her, 'cause I first saw her for what? The big valley on TV or dynasty or stuff that didn't really matter as much. But, you know, more recently I've seen things all kinds of stuff from like 40 guns to all the great films that good and great films that you folks are dealing with this in this marathon. But no, I am nothing but high on stanwyck and it's a very different appeal than Bette Davis or Joan Crawford. It's in some ways it's much less overtly intense and stylized and floridly dramatic. I mean, all three of them are beautiful stars, major stars, major actors in their way, but stanwich has just something else that I can't even I can't even really put the words on it, but I love those two words rough point in C because she brought it to everything. Yeah, I think, you know, just in the films we've been looking at in this marathon, I think that maybe describes what she's doing in Stella Dallas the best, but we can get into it. Maybe we see some of that here in meet John Doe as well. Here's a bit of the plot for meet John Doe, stanwyck, is a newspaper columnist at a paper whose new ownership is firing writers left and right in an effort to cut costs. I don't know how you handled those scenes, Michael. I had a bit of PTSD back to those days when I was at a paper, and it was like the annual, I think it was every June, you know, ten to 20 people got hacked. So these scenes were a little rough to me. I don't know if you made it past those. Yeah, yeah, there's a lot, there's a lot to speak to the present day in this picture. Let's just say. There you go, exactly. While stanwyck's Ann Mitchell, yeah, she's among those threatening to be downsized. But she turns in this last column in which she includes a letter from a fictional John Doe. Someone she's completely made up in the letter John Doe threatens to commit suicide on Christmas Eve no less to protest what he perceives as societies, ills. It is worth noting that when the film was made, the country was beginning to emerge from The Great Depression that had lasted most of the previous decade. Now, the column becomes a sensation. This leads Stan wick and the paper's editor, James gleason's Henry connell, to find an actual John Doe to play this part, and that is where Cooper's homeless jobless former ballplayer John Willoughby comes in. And he's not alone. He's got Walter Brennan's the colonel with him, as his walking, talking, conscience. Is this a good place for your Brennan impression Michael or you want to just surprise us with it later? I'm going to surprise it with you later. Great, okay. I'm a little sick of being trotted out like a show pony with a mediocre Brennan impression. It's just to make sure it doesn't matter. Oh, sorry. There you go. Love it. Love it. All right, there we go. As Cooper's John Doe becomes increasingly popular. Going on to spawn an entire populist movement. He gets exploited by just about everybody, including most frighteningly, a wealthy tycoon who has aims at The White House, played with quiet menace by Edward Arnold. Over the course of the film, Cooper also goes on a journey of personal enlightenment and inevitably we can maybe talk about this not very persuasively for me, a romantic engagement with stanwyck. Now, I said that meet John Doe was kind of a weird one for both stanwyck and capra, partially that's because stanwyck plays more of a supporting role than lead here Cooper is the definite star. Capra also was coming off a string of hits. It happened one night, mister deeds goes to town. You can't take it with you. Mister Smith goes to Washington. All of which he was Oscar nominated for and which he won two best directing Oscars for in that stretch. But unlike those films, John Doe, not as acclaimed in movie history, not as solid of a place in movie history, although maybe you're going to make the case that it should be, Michael, what did you make of meet John Doe?

"You're always gaslighting me. Do you trigger me? You are so toxic. Relax. Black. Your silencing me. I definitely think whether it's supposed to be realistic or not, I think, is a side beside the point. I do think that a lot of the dialog is meant to mirror online because so much of this generation lives online, lives in memes, lives in tiktoks, lives in Instagram captions, lives in memoir esque podcasts, right? And so it makes sense that they would talk to each other the same way as if they were tweeting at each other. Whether it's debatable, whether this generation actually talks to each other like that, 'cause I don't actually know very many Gen Z, so I would not be able to tell you. But I do think that as someone who has been on the Internet for now that I'm thinking about it. 23 years. I do often, I do often think about memes or think about things that I saw on the Internet and reference it in life, like that is that's kind of where my brain is or for the when I was younger, this kind of dates me. I was a big fan of live journal back in the day, like 20 years ago. Okay. And every time I watch a movie, I would think about how I would turn it into a live journal icon. And that's what my brain did was from being online. And so I can see that being this generation living mostly on TikTok and in meme culture, I could see their brain having a thought and then coming out as a meme just because that's absolutely that's how their brain processes. And it's really to cover us here from any blowback from Gen Z folks who are feeling a little sort of painting with a broad brush. I think it's a technology thing. It's more than an age thing. It's more than a particular generation. It's just how you've encountered technology in your life. And how it becomes embedded in the way you communicate the way you instinctively think. And I guess in this case, in the way you would respond if you were at a party and people started dying one by one. So is there anything else you wanted to touch on before we wrap up here? I think you mentioned it briefly, but I absolutely loved the cinematography, the way when the lights go out, it's mostly lit with these glow lights, glow sticks, and the cell phone lights. And I think the low light cinematography is really gorgeous. Jasper wolf, yeah, I'm glad you mentioned that because that stood out to me as well. The use of those sometimes it's just a simple idea used well. Is the use of those glow stick necklaces is so effective. And they carry it over to there's a scene with Lee Pace wearing some sort of meditation mask in a dark gym of the mansion and has a glow as well that gives it a bit of a psychedelic, but also creepy vibe. And even their under lights along the back of the walls of that gym that are glowing. And so it's this visual motif that's carried through that I agree is very effective. Yeah, that was, I feel, I feel like just the whole way they built this world to feel sort of artificial artificial light, the artificial talking artificial relationships. And then the one sort of non artificial thing is be with her, her zucchini cake. I just think that I just think that was really well thought out and well done. I'm brought something. What is it? It's zucchini bread. Yum. It all comes back to the zucchini cake. Every time I think about it, I just want zucchini cake. It was like my favorite as a kid, so.

Thank you so much, Mariah, especially for filling in last minute. Where can listeners find you online if they want to subscribe to your newsletter or keep up with all the other stuff you're up to? I am pretty much old films Flickr everywhere. I'm on Twitter, Instagram, still on tumblr, if anyone is part of the tumblr renaissance. Wow. I have never left. What generation is that? What is that? I guess tumblr's mostly millennial. I feel like it was millennial, but I've been on tumblr since 2008, and I've had a tumblr tab open for, I guess, 14 years. I don't know. But if you've come back to tumblr, I've also slicker not tumblr dot com. I've been on there forever. But my newsletter is on substack, which I don't know what generation substack counts as, but you could subscribe. It's also old films liquor, and like you said at the beginning, every Friday I send out a directed by women newsletter that highlights a handful of new releases, whether it's in theaters VOD, and then also I comb through, I try to comb through most of the streaming services, so not just Netflix and prime, but Hulu to be Canopy, hoopla, Canopy and hoopla are both through libraries of your library card, MUBI, sometimes Ovid, places you've never heard of, but they stream movies. I will highlight it. And I try to have a nice mixture of films that are newish and films that are from the 80s that maybe you've never heard of and sometimes silent films and just a nice mixture. And that comes out every Friday. It's usually about 6, 6 or 7 wrecks every week. And sometimes I've been trying to send out other newsletters like, here's what's playing repertory in Chicago and things like that, but that happens less frequently than I had intended. Yap listeners, if you're not following Mariah yet, you absolutely need to get on that. It is all all good stuff. Thank you again for doing this Mariah, especially at last minute. It was really fun. And thank you for having me. I really love this film, and it was great to talk with you about it. Thanks. Take care. I like Mariah too much to make her play massacre theater. Michael Phillips, he'll join me for some suspect acting in just a bit, and to discuss the next film in our Barbara Stanwyck, marathon, meet John Doe. Stay with us.

"And how they respond to this situation when that's there basis. That's their foundation. Yeah, it's just like taking, you know, like say gen X and throwing them in the Woods, right? That takes them out of their comfort zone. It takes them out of what they're used to, puts them in a milieu that adds adds an extra layer of psychological horde, just based on where they are, right? Then you throw this serial killer in. That's what I feel like. This is the equivalent of throwing them in the Woods in that. They shut off the Internet, which is where, you know, it's like our brains live on the Internet, but really, to some extent, even though I'm a millennial, sometimes feel like I live a little too much on the Internet. And I know that when my Internet goes out, I wouldn't want to be written near me because I definitely am on edge and I think this highlights that, not I want to say addiction, but almost addiction like, feel, really well, I think everyone would make stupid decisions and would be catty if that the dopamine release of getting a heart on your Instagram post or whatever is gone. I think that's so you're touching on all sorts of good stuff. The generational aspect, I want to dig into absolutely because I think that's a big part of it. I agree in some ways it's not entirely about this generation or even this class of people, but those are elements at play for sure. But let me jump back to April Fool's day. The movie you mentioned, the 19 86 86 movie and I'm looking at the cast here, 'cause I want to go back to where you started with the cast. And Deborah foreman, you mentioned, also in here, Griffin O'Neal, Jay baker, Clayton roner, Lloyd berry, Deborah goodrich. I'm not sure, Tom heaton, who else to kind of highlight, because Thomas F Wilson. Okay. 15 tannin himself. Oh, there he is. I recognize the face as you're saying it. I scroll down to his face. The overall point is not a lot of those blew up to be huge global stars, right? No. And so I'm looking back at this cast. I'm thinking about this cast and asking myself that question because I think you see the potential of that in some of these performances. I liked bodies bodies, these bodies as well. For me, it was, I think, the performances that maybe drew me in the most, even though these are not likeable characters at all. I knew I wasn't going to get that from this film, so it didn't bother me too much. But I think that these performances by Senate in particular, who you've already highlighted, and I want to talk a little bit more about why she's so good. And why I could see her hitting another level beyond this movie going forward. And we won't be looking at bodies bodies, bodies, on IMDb in 25 years in saying, who is that again? Well, no. Hopefully we'll know who Rachel sonnet is. Did you see Shiva baby last year? Yes. And she obviously made that her performance was so crucial to making that work because you're there, you're in her head the whole time, right? Yeah, I truly think she of this Gen Z is younger Gen Z generation of actors. I think she's got the most lasting power. I think you can see she knows her strengths and she's playing to it early. Hopefully she continues to grow. But I think she will. I think she's really savvy. That's a good word. Savvy is a great word. And you can see that in these two roles back to back because Shiva baby obviously comedic, but has more opportunity to give us a richer, deeper character than what she does here as Alice. And she's not trying to overplay that as Alice. She knows Alice's purpose in this narrative and gets everything she can out of that character and out of that purpose. You already named the physical comedy, the facial expressions, just the timing. And here's maybe where the Lucille Ball comparison comes to mind. For me, she always seems to add something to the conversation a half second later than she should have. I love how the movie pauses and waits like and then eventually that builds and builds so we know she's going to jump in later in the film and we just can't wait to see what Alice is going to offer. Tied to the physical comedy just the fact that she keeps adding these glow sticks as necklaces as the night goes on, a perfect encapsulation of her character who is this somewhat dippy really excitable, but apparently seems kind of benign figure compared to some of the others. You know, she's just there to have fun to brighten the mood. And so she literally tries to do that with these necklaces, but then we do get some shading, layer on. And we heard that clip at the top of the show when her podcast is insulted. Then Alice's claws come out. And you've kind of, she has been triggered at this point and Senate gives us another element to the character, which I think is both funny and scary. Introduces her then as a potential suspect for real, and I think it just works beautifully for the movie. So it's an example of Senate knowing exactly what she needs to bring to this and bringing the best version of that. Now, if we had to each choose a secondary performer or actor who we might put in that category of launching from here, is there an easy answer for you? Yeah, I think Maria bakalova, the one two punch of four of what she was able to do physically and Borat. And then what she's able to do vulnerably in this film shows that she also has a rich tool like toolbox of different emotions she can reach as a performer. And kind of a fearlessness, she's definitely someone who's willing to go into extremes, both in terms of the physical comedy, like we saw on Borat.

"What kind of a show you guys putting on here today? We're not interested in art? No. No, look, we're going to do this thing. We're going to have a conversation. From Chicago, this is film spotting. I'm Josh Larson. First of all, a podcast takes a lot of work, okay? You have to organize the guests. You have to do a Google calendar and any of you build a following. It takes a lot of time. And I've been working on it for a while. That's a clip from the new horror satire bodies bodies bodies, a film that takes deadly aim at many of the defining features of contemporary life, like the rapidly evolving language of progressive politics, and podcasts. Adam has the week off, so joining me to talk bodies, bodies, bodies, is fellow Chicago critic Mariah Gates. We'll also get a visit from the Chicago tribunes Michael Phillips, who will talk Barbara Stanwyck with me. Our summer of stanwyck marathon continues with Frank Capra's meet John Doe. That and more, I had on film spotty. Welcome to film spotting. I'm Josh Larsen. It's a niche audience. I realize, but for those that care, I promise you, I'm going to do my best to get Michael Phillips Walter Brennan impression out of him at some point in this show. Brendan, a three time Oscar winner, has a supporting role in 1940 ones meet John Doe, directed by Frank Capra, and starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck. It's the fourth film in our summer of stanwyck marathon. Michael joins me for that conversation later in the show. But first, I want to welcome in Mariah Gates. Mariah came to the rescue for us. As we mentioned last week, critic Roxanne Hadi had planned to join us, but she wasn't feeling well, couldn't record last minute in swooped Mariah, a film critic based here in Chicago. She writes the weekly, directed by women newsletter, available at the finest inboxes near you. Welcome Mariah, have you been having a good movie summer? So far, I've had a great movie summer. I, along with fellow Chicago film critic, Robert Daniels went to the Carlo be very film festival in the Czech Republic, a place neither of us had been to, and we saw, I want to say 25 or 30 films. It was a lot. Wow. It was great. It's a lovely festival. We saw things that are unique to that festival, some Eastern European titles and films that were hold over some can. I saw an amazing film from Rwanda that called Father's Day that is probably going to make my end of the year list because I keep thinking about it. I hope it gets distribution. Because it's so good, but I'm glad I saw it. So, you know, it was kind of hard to hard to top a summer like that, starting off. I imagine. Yeah, my goodness. It sounds like an incredible experience. And any other distinctions besides some of those films you wouldn't have seen in U.S. based faster, maybe even somewhere else in Europe. Anything else stand out to you compared to other film festivals you've been to? It was a very critic friendly festival. They really took care of us. They really made sure the ticket system was really easy, but also there was one film that I was trying to review and I kept I kept missing, you know, I missed the first screening and I missed a second screen because I was trying to see other stuff and there was like one screening left and I emailed them and I was like, I don't know what to do and they were like we will get you a seat and the woman who was working with me like my coordinator. She was literally there in front of the theater with me to make sure I had a seat for the last screening of this film. Nice. Just like she like saw my butt in the seat before she left. And it ended up being one of my favorite films of the festival. It's called plan 75. It's a Japanese sort of not quite a pop. It's like soft sci-fi kind of movie, but it's just they really were the most critic friendly. I feel like I've ever seen in a festival. Nice. Well, I'm glad that worked out for the both of you. Now closer to home since you are chicagoan. I noticed on Twitter and so forth that you've been spending a lot of time at the music box theater where we frequent as well. Is there a highlight from something you've seen there over the summer, either a new release, or maybe one of the many retrospective showings that they do? Taking Robert to see starman in 70 millimeter, a film that I have loved since I was a kid. And he had not seen somehow it was a film that escaped him all these years. Was my highlight. I have loved that film. I love Jeff Bridges in it. I love Karen Allen. I always wanted to be Karen Allen when I was a kid. She's like understandable. I saw all her movies when I was a kid. And I was like, why am I not her? But the movie was more beautiful than I remembered because the 70 millimeter print was so gorgeous and the score is just so stunning and it's sometimes considered a lesser Carpenter and I'm like, no, it is as good as anything else he's done. It's just sentimental in a way that maybe some of his others aren't, but sentimental doesn't necessarily mean bad. And that was, as you mentioned, one of the showings of the music box is 70 millimeter festival, which is always, it was good to see that back this year. It's always a highlight on their calendar. All right, I promise we're going to get to body's body's bodies, but I needed to take a moment here. One last question for you before we do that. We're doing this summer of stanwyck marathon. I know your love for classic and older Hollywood films. It's one of the reasons you tend to clean up when you join us to play trivia spotting along with the film spotting family members on Patreon when we do that. You have a wealth of knowledge, a deep passion. So talk to me briefly about Barbara Stanwyck, just where you kind of place her in the Pantheon. I was looking up how many had seen based on my letter box and according to letterbox I've seen 46 stanwick movies. Wow. Yes, so she's probably very high in terms of completed filmographies. And the number one is Joan Crawford, no one will ever come close. I've seen all but 5 junk Crawford movies, but Stan wick, I think, is unique in that she isn't she's like Joan Crawford in that she is an original. You don't see anyone who is similar in terms of screen presence before or after a sandwich. And she, again, like John Crawford is able to move in between genres. She, you know, she did the shop worn kind of 30s depression era films. She did weepies. She did screwball comedy better than almost anybody except maybe Carol Lombard. She did noir and she's like the peak femme fatale, everyone wants to be fill a secret sin, there's no she is the peak femme fatale. And then she moved easily into westerns. You believe her as like a woman who can rope a cow. She just moves in and out of these different kinds of films so easily. Yeah, yeah, that range has been on full display in this marathon. And it's been a delight for me to catch a lot of these films for the first time. Joan Crawford has been in the back of my mind too, because she's one of those pinnacles. I agree with you. And just watching some of them, their films kind of pair off each other at the same time and similar stories, but totally different talents that you know. Such different things to the screen. That's what I think is so great about the classic era is you had plots that were similar, right? Each era, you had the depression era films you had this film as you had the noir films, what have you. But you had these distinct iconic personas. And so you weren't going to go see a shop girl movie. You were going to see Joan Crawford, or you were going to see

"All right, surveys. This is from the shame and secret survey filled out by a woman who calls herself vegan, CrossFit gage. She identifies as bisexual. She is in her 20s, says that she was raised in a pretty dysfunctional environment, was the victim of sexual abuse and reported it. She writes, my best friend raped me the second week of my sophomore year of college. The next day she apologized and admitted that it was assault. I reported it three months later to the school. She took back everything she said and swore that it was consensual. All of my Friends either refused to pick sides or took her side in the investigation in the case got dropped. They all said that it was probably a misunderstanding or that I led her on. One told me that at least it was another girl wow. The school dropped the case because they had no evidence. What hurts the most is that all of my old Friends still talk to her. I dropped out of college later that year. I try not to think about it now, but I still flinch when certain people touch me. She has been emotionally abused. She writes my dad is bipolar, and he's been extremely emotionally abusive since I was little. At one point in high school, he blamed me for all of his and my mother's marriage issues. At once forgot to bring him home Italian ice and he told me that I was just trying to piss him off and then he told me to just go upstairs and slice myself. Previously I had a self harm problem and he used everything he could against me. He's been better lately, but now it's little things. It's constant. I feel like I can't say no to him. Sometimes he'll say that I clearly love my mom more because she enables my eating disorder. Other times it'll just remind me that I'm selfish and treat them like shit. He has his good days and it makes me feel guilty that I still keep my distance, but he's unstable and he doesn't realize how unpredictable he is. I'm beginning to fear that I really am the problem. Well, from what you've described, your father irregardless of what you're doing, what your father is doing is inappropriate at the very least and, you know, I think more accurately abusive to things that he says. It doesn't matter what you're doing. Somebody should not say that to another person. And I'm not saying if you're being abusive, there shouldn't be consequences, but not in the form of somebody telling you to go slice yourself or, you know, yeah. And he positive experiences with the abusers, growing up with my father has made me a stronger person. I've learned how to stand up for myself. I've learned how to hold my own. Well, that is an answer to the question. Are there any benefits from the, I think rather than positive experiences, that sounds more like a positive you took from it rather than positive experiences with that person. Darkest thoughts sometimes when I had difficulty falling asleep, I wish that I could kill myself just because it would feel better than lying awake at night stuck with my thoughts. Darkest secrets. I'm terrified that I'm too mentally unstable to ever hold a steady job or get anywhere in life. I'm afraid that one day I'll just snap and kill myself. I'm afraid that I'll never gather up to never gather up the courage to kill myself and I'll end up stuck at my house with my father and work at dead end job to make ends meet for the rest of my life. I'm terrified that I'll never truly escape my eating disorder. Sexual fantasies most powerful to you. I haven't had any enjoyable sex and that scares me. I don't know if it's because I was raped. I've only had sex once since then. Sometimes though I'm tempted to call up my friend for a hookup because I know that it will make me feel numb. I know that he can temporarily fuck the empty out of me. Boy, that is a sentence. Fuck the empty out of me. What if anything would you like to say to someone you haven't been able to to my high school English teacher? I know that you don't have to answer my emails anymore. I'm not a student, so it's not your job, but it's still hurts that you said once you'd always be there for me and now you're not. That's like writing a ghost. It's like crying in an abandoned auditorium. In high school you saved me from killing myself. Maybe that was too much for you. I wish I could say that I'm better now, but I'm not. I'm different, but not better. So much has happened to me so many bad things. I wish I could just talk to you again. I wish you were there to comfort me. I'm sorry that I got so attached that I'm still so attached. I'm sorry. What if anything do you wish for? I wish I could be free of my eating disorder. Have you shared these things with others? I've been talking with my therapist for years now, and it helps, but sometimes I'm afraid that she'll send me back to the hospital or to eating disorder treatment again. I think a lot of us relate to that fear of if we fully open up somebody, somebody is suggestion is going to be something that we really don't want to do. How do you feel after writing these things down? It feels a little bit lighter. Well, I'm glad I'm glad and thank you for sharing all of that stuff and I really hope that you can start to heal from this stuff and start to feel safe and setting boundaries around people that are toxic. This is an awful moment filled out by a guy who calls himself John Doe and he writes when I was a 19 years old and went on a first date with a wonderful wonderful girl. While on the date, my car, unfortunately caught on fire due to an electrical short. We both got out unharmed, but as a college athlete, I now was in the unfortunate position of being without trans transportation. I had recently broken my back for the third time in my sport. So maybe all in the universe was telling me it was time to quit the sport and get a job. I found a job as a bartender near where I lived so I could walk to and from work and catch the bus to school. It was day three of my training, and I was finally cleared to actually work, a gentleman came in and sat down asking me what's the cheapest beer you got. At the time, we were trying to get rid of some monthly special called red rocket by one for a buck 75 and get a second one free. It was a hell of a deal. The name, however, caused this gentleman and I had to crack jokes for 15 minutes about canine erections. Until he decided he would take one. I popped the top and went to the back to change a keg..

"Are privileged to talk about this record 40 years on because it's so rare to have a record somebody made 40 years ago and going, you know, this still sounds pretty good. There's still sounds very contemporary. It has aged well, I should say, how do you feel about that record in particular? I think it's one of the best sounding records we did, and I give rave menzer a credit for that as well, because all the doors record sound like their version of a blues record. They didn't use tricks like Jimi Hendrix did. They didn't use tricks like, you know, some of the other psychedelic bands did. And ray applied those lessons to us. He just wanted a good performance and he wanted to sound authentic and honest and to just do it. Serve the song don't serve the latest recording trick or Billy wouldn't and doesn't use guitar pedals. That's a blessing. I guess a real test too is like, do you feel good about playing these songs now? Yeah, because a lot of people say, I can't play that song anymore because you know I did it 40 years ago, it doesn't represent at all what I am. We've had to adjust a few things, like in Los Angeles, we don't use the N word anymore, and that's good, because we shouldn't. It was written to hold a mirror up to people, but I am very proud that we can play hungry wolf and come back to me now. We have a 5th member who joins us, and he plays drums while DJ plays vibes and Billy plays sacks on stage, and that's awesome. That shows this other kind of range that we have. We had a good, we had a really good studio, too, you know? Warner Brothers money instead of just slash records money, a fantastic pleasure talking to the great John Doe. Author, actor, solo artist, member of X all around legend. You know, and I try to be a decent human being. I'm glad I can. And I'm always grateful for the opportunity to do something else. And I think it's part of being a creative person is someone says, hey, do you want to try to do this thing? You might fall on your face and it's like, uh. Sure, I guess. I'll try. Why not? You know, and if you're lucky, you keep your head up and you learn something, and then you can pass it on to somebody else or you can include somebody else. Yeah, that's my, that's my thing.

Well, you mentioned earlier, John Billy sometimes being recalcitrant or putting his foot down and he was the editor of the group. This is good, that's not an has had an evolution in her thinking. Four distinct individuals. How do you navigate that? Because Greg's interviewed a number of times, I've seen interviews with you. I've read your writings. I mean, you seem to be the easygoing guy in X I don't know about DJ. He's kind of quiet. But Jesus, the drums on hungry wolf. How do you navigate that? Four distinct personalities coming back together again over those decades. Oh, you know, I come to say that it's like a family. You got to get together for Thanksgiving, no matter what, right? You let that sink in and families are crazy complicated. And you realize, you know what? What's good? Outweighs what's bad. And living in Texas now living in Austin. You see a Trump flag. And you have to say, okay, I don't agree with that, but you're part of the world too. And I think that's important. I think living in a place that only has your point of view is tough. It's dangerous. And we respect each other. That's how we navigate it. And we don't, we don't sweat the small stuff. And whatever has, what's ever in the past is you try to downplay the bad and remember the good and we're at such a viciously opposed time in American history. You know, as a beat reporter, I learned early on, sometimes the scariest you know, the guys in the biker bar, who you didn't know if you were going to make it out alive. You know, you got a flat tire, they'll come out and they're like, lift your car up physically. Retire, right? Those guys in the bars in the have nots. You might not want to know what they really think about women or about race. But if a tornado is common, are they going to help their neighbors rebuild? If disaster comes, right? Can't we reconnect with that basic where all in this together feeling in America? Yes, I would hope so. And the good people, you know, the Jimmy stewarts of those working class types will say, well, what the hell, you know? I was actually talking to Shirley Manson about this. And I don't mean to, I don't mean to name drop, but I'm giving her credit for it, that it's fear. It's fear of chaos. And that's why people are so angry. I would think after going through the last two years, that there'd be a lot more empathy. But people are afraid. And I think those guys in the difference between now and then 82 and 22 is the fear and, you know, the 24 news cycle know this stuff because those guys at the end of the bar, they probably would drop the N word, but they probably worked with a lot of black folks on their assembly line. And they were happy to have them as their union brother kind of thing. So. You know, and that brings us back to fables. You know, if you're talking about trying to stay alive and Deadwood, you may not like the Native Americans, but when things get bad, everybody's in this together, right? Taming the frontier required all hands on deck. It's not a simpler time, but it's more elemental. It is like you either get your food or you starve, you either fix your roof or your freeze and that's part of what appealed to me and on the race subject, the guilty bystander was inspired by the murder of George Floyd. It was right around that same time and I kept thinking like, well, what's a song that I could be singing when I was doing some virtual shows. And I thought about the, you know, there's a man going around taking names that led belly did and that's about slavery and stuff. And I thought, no, that's not. Happened upon this idea of a guilty bystander. And it means nowadays, you got to get in there. You got to say the right thing, you got to do the right thing, and you can't be a bystander. You have to stand up. It's a hard song to sing live because you're saying slaves and masters and people are going like, oh God, that's prickly. Oh, golly. Golly, John. Why do you want to bring up such difficult subjects? It's not like you weren't bringing up difficult subjects before. And that was true about alphabet land. People said, oh God, this is so current and stuff. And it's like, we've been thinking about this since the beginning, like the world's a mess. It's in my kiss. And it's just, you know, sometimes things catch up to you and things are and they're more prescient, as you said. In the dark I'll break that after all. We are privileged to talk about this record 40 years on because it's so rare to have a record somebody made 40 years ago and going, you know, this still sounds pretty good. There's still sounds very

"And then Chris Howe reviews under the big black sun in The Village Voice and you know these Los Angeles bohemians have finally connecting with roots and blah blah blah blah. And I'm like, I don't know X was pretty great. The first time I heard under the big black song, I was like, wow, you know, daring to slow down. You know, come back to me and beautiful cover of dancing with tears in my eyes, but also just something like the hungry wolf was such an opener. And running there's me with my name I see you gonna be gone. You know, I Roman endlessly with my mate and I was like, okay, we all knew John and exing got married and wow. What's that house like? You know what I mean? They're both wools. Well, that makes me laugh. 'cause our House was great. It was chaotic at times. You know, because it was at times, it was a real party pit, you know. It wasn't as though we calculated that. It just was. And I was so fulfilled in that I went to Los Angeles to find some sort of bohemian lifestyle and damn if I didn't find it. And now we're assigned to a major record company. You know, still, there's all kinds of, you know, self deprecating and feeling not worthy and impostor syndrome, which that wasn't even a thing then, but you still had it. But like I said, we were feeling ourselves. We felt like we were so outside of the mainstream that even if we did like dancing with tears in my eyes or come back to me, it was still punk rock because, you know, blondie had opened that path. They would do things that were like surf rock. We can play a song like Benny king. You know, we did adult books, which was sort of similar. All in love they're all in love like a dog don't understand how you see them. Nick Lowe had said, had said, okay, well, that's all right. You can do that and still be dissatisfied and

"In 77 with those two. John brings his then girlfriend, LA underground slam poet, wasn't called that then. To the rehearsals, she winds up in the band. DJ bone breaks the last one to join. As you said, he'd been in this band the eyes, he occasionally filled in for the germs on drums. Really under rated as a key thing that solidified that band. I mean, his approach to punk drumming was incredibly subtle and very different than one two three four, right? Right. But from the beginning, especially with Billy zoom on guitar, the range of influences, Bo Diddley, Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash, a lot of American country, but hyped up to this punk fury. We can hear bits and pieces of that in Los Angeles, wild gift. The first two albums. But I really think under the big black sun is where they explode. The boundaries, which are becoming increasingly narrow, as you said, with those bands from just outside of LA and the hyper violence and the hyperactive tempos. It slows down a little bit. Doesn't lose the fury, but begins to amplify this great tradition of American music. And I think John was always the scholar. Billy zoom knew which guitar licks to rip off and he was encyclopedic with his love of rockabilly. But I think John Doe knew the traditions all the way back to folk music. Well, I think the songwriting in particular, you know, Billy zoom was a great artist in terms of the guitar. You mentioned, you know, the rockabilly, but there was also a lot of jazz influences. Guitar playing. He was like almost a pre rock and roll in terms of the kinds of influences he was bringing. So when I was distinctive too, but you're right, John had that perspective on what, again, roots music in America, country especially. And bringing that element into the sound. And with vaccine he had a perfect foil, the counterpoint vocals were truly distinctive. Male female dialog that they had on stage every night. Well, and what they represented as a loving couple, bohemian, both artists, following their path, but doing it together. Yeah, for sure. Now let's go back to our conversation with John Doe. We want to talk a little bit about under the big black sun too, John. 40th anniversary, I don't know if you were aware of that or keep track of such things. But rock critic geeks do. I still remember the day I bought it, all the X records, Jim and I are huge fans of the band and those first, I'd say the first four albums are just masterpieces. It's hard to choose just one, but this happens to be the 40th anniversary of under the big black sun. From what I understand, I think I talked to you before about this, but you had said that basically the first two records were pretty much written like you had recorded a lot of that material with Ray Manzarek and it was just a matter of like, this is going on in Los Angeles album. This is going to go on the next record. Wild gift. And then under the big black sun was kind of like a reset. What was your recollection of the songwriting process for that record? Well, we didn't tour like people tour nowadays. We didn't tour for 8 months out of the year. We would tour for maybe three. You know, we'd go out for a month and then come home and then figure out what other area of the U.S. and maybe we did something in Europe for those first two records. I would say about half of wild gift was written as we were recording Los Angeles. I give Ray Manzarek all the credit for choosing the songs that went on to Los Angeles. We had songs like we're desperate, adult books. There were several songs, wouldn't have fit on the sort of dark underbelly, whatever, you know, people said about it. That was on Los Angeles. So I give ray all the credit for that. Yeah, you know. What you're doing yeah, as we had gotten more and more

"When we return, we dive into the X album under the big black sun with John Doe for its 40th anniversary. That's in a minute on sound opinions. Welcome back to sound opinions. I'm Jim dear goddess, my partner is Greg cott. This week we're talking all things X the LA punk band that melded together different musical styles, and went on to influence many other bands. Before we jump into our classic album dissection of under the big black sun, with vocalist bases, John Doe, we want to give a little context. You know, Greg had always struck me that Los Angeles was a little bit late to the party. If we look at 76, 77 as the high water mark of the New York and London punk scenes, LA heats up a little later, right? Well, you know, everybody, when the Ramones album hit in 76, that was a big moment for a lot of bands. I mean, we can do this. Listen to what these guys are doing, maybe we can do something like this as well. I think these bands were already kind of in the air a little bit, but the idea that you could actually get up on a stage and get a gig at a club, heavily motivated by that Ramon's debut album. Not only did it influence the English punk scene, but the LA punk scene, similarly. You're right. 1976 was kind of the formative moment. The 77 78, we started to see records from bands like the germs. You know, you can't have a better punk rock named in Darby crash. Would my angry give me your hand if you're my busy young you're my sister give me this give me give me. You

I'm Jim D regattas, and I'm Greg kott, but first, X vocalist bassist solo artist and actor John Doe. We want to welcome John Doe to the show great new solo album out 40 plus years of history. It's like almost daunting John to chat with you 'cause we don't even know where to start. But welcome to sound opinions. Well, thank you. And you may start wherever you choose. You already started at the most important place. Yeah, why don't we chat about that and then on sound opinions we do these classic album dissections when there's an album that changed Greg's life, my life, and there's a significant date, but I want to talk about the newest stuff first. That's a great idea. I can roll this into where I am and what inspired this record. Yeah, you're in Chicago, right? No, I am in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Oh, okay. I heard you were spending some time here. No, I'm in Tulsa and it's because they're opening the Bob Dylan center. I got invited here because I wrote a thousand words or so on a record, which also inspired or was part of the inspiration for this new record. A Bob Dylan record. Which one, John Wesley Harding? Ah, okay. The new solo album is fables in a foreign land. It's raw. Rootsy. It is just a great record, John, congratulations. Is it a raw rootsy record? Yes. It is. It sounds like a fat possum record, you know? They did the list, X record, and you're putting this solo album out with them. Some impressive guests, Louis Perez, from Los lobos. So what's the Dylan connection? I don't know exactly how probably because I got to be part of the music cares show that bob picked all the people that were going to be singing and participating in that and I was lucky enough to get chosen and we've met each other over the years a couple of times and it's always been pretty positive. I got to open for him at the Hollywood palladium once and so there's a history and of course like a lot of songwriters I was totally influenced by Bob Dylan. I mean, he's one of those guys, right? So they called me, I think it was four years ago to come up here and look at some of the archive before they had solidified how and what the Dylan center was going to be. And they were asking journalists and some musicians to come up and pick a record of bobs that was influential. John Wesley Harding was the one that I felt like was mine. And so I looked at a bunch of notebooks that Bob Dylan wrote wild record was being made. I listened to all these different takes. They have available of that session. Oh, wow. And some of them are basically the same. And then you hear the one that is on the record and you go, oh yeah, there's the one. But there's not much changes, but the song that inspired me most was, as I went out one morning, which started as a very slow three, four version. They do two takes of the slow three, four time, and then the third take is completely different. It was a great choice. It

Teddy Gilman is our producer and just ahead the first flight out of Afghanistan to carry American citizens since the US withdrawal is expected to take off today. Also, President Biden will outlined a new strategy to slow the spread of the delta variant of coronavirus. The president's big human infrastructure plan undergoes major number crunching in Congress. I'm Mitchell Miller today on the hill w T o p News time. It's 8 31. We're following breaking developments this morning from Afghanistan. There's word that the Taliban is going to allow between 101 150 Americans to fly from Kabul in the coming hours. A large group of Americans and other Westerners would depart on a flight that had earlier brought humanitarian aid to Afghanistan. There's an expectation that another flight could take off tomorrow. The departure of the Americans is the first since the US completed its last frantic airlift at the end of August. We would also signal that the U. S. Officials have come to an arrangement with the new Taliban leaders. Meantime, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on a trip to Kuwait yesterday, said the Al Qaeda extremist group that used Afghanistan as a staging base to attack the U. S 20 years ago may attempt to regenerate there. Now that the Taliban is back in power. I think you know the nature of Al Qaeda and Isis K is that you know they will always attempt to to find space to grow and regenerate whether it's there. Or whether it's in Somalia. Whether it's in any Any other ungoverned state. The Taliban had provided Al Qaeda with sanctuary while it ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2000 and one Austin says the U. S.

The US recorded some 400,000 Covid 19 cases in all of June. It took all of three days last week to reach the same number. Nearly 27,000 Americans died for the virus just last month.

Court Unseals Documents in Ghislaine Maxwell Lawsuit
"Unsealed documents show that Jeffrey Epstein was offering advice. Take Elaine Maxwell as latest 2015 despite her lawyer statement that the quarters socialite had no contact with the disgraced financier in a decade. Maxwell's in a federal jail in Brooklyn after her arrest this month on charges of engaging with Epstein in a sex trafficking scheme, she's trying to stop the disclosure of documents that include her sworn testimony in a civil case. Joining me is Bloomberg legal reporter Patricia Hatano, who's been covering the Maxwell case that give us the background on these documents there? This is a prolonged involved. Story goes back here. There was a young woman named Virginia Robert to Frank's, and she says that when she was 16 years old, she encounters going Maxwell at Mar a Lago. Her dad works there, the maintenance man, he gets a job at the law. She's handing out pals and ah lovely woman. British woman comes up to her She's reading a book about massage and offered her a job working for this wealthy man who wants to go looking for a private, Mr She said. She was 16 years old at the time. So she goes to the mansion. If it turns out, she's introduced Jeffrey Epstein and he immediately and Maxwell, she alleges. Forced her to perform sex acts with the two of them program and she became a sex slave she and alleges that was in 1999 2000. So then she ends up. Trying to join a law with victims of Epstein after everything gets his secret plea deal, and she makes him comments about Maxwell publicly and Maxwell coming back and issued a press release in January 2015. She makes pigments and says that this woman is a liar. Would provoke a pram a defamation lawsuit. Dupree, Suze Maxwell for Defamation and Natural gave testimony under oath questioned about the sex trafficking. Judy was very, very aggressive. Her lawyers included David Boy and this guy Bradley, Edward and Pottenger in Florida, and they really went to question Maxwell at people that worked at the stain home in Palm Beach. All kind of allegation. Soju phase allege with force have sex that you have traffic in Spain. This man including alleged princes, possibly Prince Andrew. She named him and Maxwell denies it. So what happens is the stuff was all settled right? On the eve of trial, 2015 losses got settled right before trial, And then the documents were under field. So how did all those sealed documents get unsealed before Jeffrey Epstein's suicide? But after F being gets prosecuted, the Miami Herald goes to ask why this field And the Court of Appeals. Second Circuit Court of Appeals directed that the judge who had originally had the law didn't properly feel you shouldn't have properly field everything. It was improper to keep all the documents from the public. And so that's how we get to this point. The circuit orders last on the order all these documents and fields and all the documents start hitting the docket. And the next day, Jeffrey Epstein is found dead in his jail cell of an apparent suicide. So the document release was sent back to a new federal judge to preside over what properly on field in what should not be properly and field And you can imagine there's all these implications for other people whose names may can't come off other victims who allegedly were there when the trafficking occurred or were also traffic who may not want to have their names come out there like a Jane Doe Juan and a Jane Doe two and no Mortal, Jane Doe and also John Doe. So Judge Preska on July 23rd shelter hearing after you know, Matthew now been charged and says, Okay, let's go and have a hearing about what you get on field, So she ordered the first transfer documents to be unsealed last Thursday night, So that's how we get to the testimony. Maxwell with questioned under oath. The government used the testimony as a basis say stay. She lied and committed two counts of perjury for lying when she claimed she was never present. When Ft may have been sexually abusing, underage girl know, and she'd seen anything like it, she was not aware of that activity, illegal activity no more. President ever witnessing it so that testimony remains under seal because she went for an emergency motion and after the court of Appeals to again stop the release. Thursday night, the 30th so that was on 11th hour stock about part But the rest of the documents hit the docket starting at like 9 30 on Thursday night. How many documents are already out 2000 pages released in August. So that's when we started first seeing these allegations of possible you know Prince Andrew's involvement, some captains of industry more implicated some senators from former president their allegations that were flight records of people who were on the plane.

Travel with Rick Steves
The Story of Spanish
"All the political wrangling in the United States over its immigration policies concerning people from south of the border the nation's long and intimate relationship with Spanish speaking neighbors is often overlooked in fact in the United States. Were already one of the top Spanish speaking countries in the world. So how in the first place did a dialect spoken by? Just a handful of shepherds up northern Spain eventually become the world's second most spoken language. Jon Benet Nadeau and Julie Barlow are the husband and wife team the history and role of I the French language in their book. The story of French and now they're examining the same story for Spanish book is called the story of Spanish. They join us now to share their intriguing biography of Spanish. Hola AMIGOS LAST TIME. We spoke you were. We were all in the French mode. And now we've got this book which is kind of like a biography of Spanish. What is the importance of the Spanish language on our planet today? It's a large language its spoken by about four hundred twenty million people in twenty countries. So it's either as a large native base contrary to French for example which has a small native base right so language also that as peculiarity. It's actually less taught. Outside of its of its natural sphere. Except for three countries three countries weights were very largely taught as a second language United States Brazil and France These three countries make up about I would say seventy percent of their learners outside of southern. Excuse that's interesting. There's there's two dimensions of the impact of a language than how many people speak it natively and how many people are learning it as a second language and it's not always correlated. No not at all but one of the interesting things one of one of the motivations for writing the book was this realization. We had that. It was you know growing as a second language obviously in the United States but that the United States itself was becoming a kind of Hispanic country and the United States as we tell the story in the book that the United States has its own Spanish language academy one interesting things about Spanish. Unlike say French is it's very decentralized. The control of the language and the standards of the language are managed among the twenty or twenty two Spanish speaking countries and the United States is one of them and it's an important growing center so we We thought that was really interesting. We didn't quite a bit of the research for the book. We we did. Um while you're living in Phoenix Arizona Okay and We were looking at him. You know what was happening. In the dynamics of the United States the United States is is very interesting. Because we're talking. But fifty million Hispanics Spanish speaking people in the United States. It's almost as if the United States and grew country of the size of Spain. That's quite underestimated. Linguistic power than fifty fifty s people in a very important country from economics and politics and so on one aspect. I find even more fascinating. Is that into discourse. Today we talk about Hispanics entering the country all but historically it's United States that entered Hispanics fear like all of the southwest starting from Texas to California was Spain. Oh so in other words. We took that we bought it or we conquered it. Are we next it and things so it was Spanish speaking I and we in is that why I looked at a chart in your book? And it shows clearly the south and the southwest in the West Coast along with Florida's where the most Spanish speakers are in the United States. I I was thinking that would be more immigration but actually it does mirror. Who was there? When we annexed that territory. Exactly what we were living in Phoenix. We were kind of stunned. I mean the people that you would think immigrants actually understood the land and they understood you know people were eating cactus and this lady that we're living in to make food out of it and they understood the climate. It's their climate. They were doing that a long time before the Louisiana purchase. Or whatever exactly exactly and they're still doing it and the rest of the standing around wondering what's going on and that you know. The Latinos are wandering the streets with garbage bags. You know. Let me get this. This is interesting because a lot of Americans have have anxiety about our country. You know becoming less pure English and so on but when you really look at the history. There's always been a substantial minority of people at one time a majority of people speaking Spanish in this out in the southwest. Yes yes in the center. Mississippi area was French. So you have that history and I remember when I was a student Used to go to Tex Mex restaurants in Montreal and saying this is not real Mexican food you know to realize many years later. That tex-mex is another brand of Mexican hat is something it makes it. It's not just a tacky commercial thing it's just don't feel region of a of a long time ethnic reality. It's its own brand. And the Anti EU cowboy culture in the United States was actually created in Spain and Spanish by Mexicans. Elder vocabulary stampede. All that is completely derived from Spanish. Ronco that's right. It all comes wrangler. It's endless all right. This is travel. With Rick Steves. We're talking with John John DOE and Julie Barlow about their book the story of Spanish before we get deep discussion genre and Julie. Tell us about writing this book. And and what? You're going in writing the book well. We had the enemy with the story of French which is sort of look at the history. And how the French was born in spread across the plan. And what were the factors that turned it into an international language and so we decided to do the same thing for Spanish? And it's a similar story but in many ways more ups and downs Spanish. As you mentioned the intro starts out as this language of shepherds basically northern Spain and then encounters these historical moments. Where in all languages like that where it's sort of make or break you know it. Spain could have become arabic-speaking could have been dominated by different waves of immigration over history and it had its kings that made fundamental decisions that shaped the language and so it's like a bookie would read for cultural background but very centered on just how the language made it. I mean it's a success

"John Doe" who accused Kevin Spacey of sexual assault dies
"Kevin Spacey one of his sexual assault accusers died in the midst of a lawsuit unexpectedly and people won't as of right now it's on known causes and if you're not familiar with the store he's been accused by several different men of sexual harassment or assault mostly sexual assault he was massage therapists in and twenty eighteen he made the claim that during massage therapy. we have young kids a crown turned down give a couple things turned out three to one to turn down took the massage therapy Kevin Spacey grabbed his hand and they made him touches this diet private area gotcha and then they'll let me ask you real quick was he found not guilty criminally so this was a civil lawsuit this was this is a different there's another one that was thrown out recently as a separate one okay this is separate you still can sue right if you're found not guilty criminally as we've seen with OJ since I'll yet yeah because this is a lawsuit so this isn't a criminal thing I guess but this man had had remained a man who died unexpectedly who's a Kevin Spacey accuser has been he has not released his name did not wanna releases name I mean the court knows but in the ask the court not to relate releases ninety one people because he's embarrassed about it he's a middle aged man that was well respected his family's like devastated ha but he look for to standing up to Kevin Spacey is the report from his attorney. so the question is look at what happens when you just die in the middle of a lawsuit that you're pursuing or exciting as serious going on getting killed I wonder like the guy than the jail and steam. other Mister it's just seems like all these rich powerful people all of a sudden the main witness dying writing you seemingly CI a and a law and order episode like that would never happen and then it does I this is scary and I would imagine that if you are being sued by someone and then they die does it just go away is just over in the end I mean if the serious allegation then I I guess you would also think will think I'd have some to do with it and give you know I don't know we do have official about at least Lanier on at least so what's the deal with this Kevin Spacey thank Hey give warning Hey I love the analogy about law and order either they actually the writers of on order based on older episodes on real life legal situation that you're in line at one of the show's ripped from the headlines totally true they totally so all that stuff you see on there has some where in the United States actually occurred and they picked it up and put it in the chat mark I had the S. Kevin ironically the Kevin Spacey show that he was on what was called the political Shah house of cards that was based on a political things as well the murder in the sea in the craziness that goes on with the politics like seriously like we don't think we think of the movie stores up like that but Mike really go on debating on my real life people yeah US yeah like you said hell wild is it that all these in all these cases like mysteriously this key witness you know this guy going after Kevin Spacey mysteriously dies those are. yes the weather's no foul play suspected so you know the internet is but what happens like your to get your question what happens is so this is a civil lawsuit like you said this is not a criminal lawsuit so in a civil lawsuit this man who died he's the point if he's the one that was agreed that the right and so when that person dies that does have an impact on the case as an impact on the damages in the case it has an impact on who would receive those damages right because the plane as the guy who was aggrieved and harm is no longer around to receive those damages so what happens is with the Californication California and it's kind of similar all over there's a legal duty for the plaintiff's attorney to notify the court or notify here notify opposing counsel that your planet has died so they filed that notice so now that starts the clock ticking in the California court there's ninety days in which the plaintiffs counsel not must open in a state for the plan F.. and which is a lot of paperwork and I you know hiring having an estate attorney it's usually separate attorney and then follow substitution so that the estate becomes the plan F. instead of the actual individual if they do that within ninety days the lawsuit can go on but it becomes a lot harder to prove and the damages are impacted because now your key witness is gone visitors can I say Kevin Spacey took my hand and put it on his stuff right right now if it was a criminal trial lease Lanier any criminal trial and you're the one witness and the safe you died or or murdered let's say you died is that I mean the I guess that they don't do they throw it out right away or the so you're out. it's it's really depends kind of a case by case basis on what other evidence they have because some you know a lot of times in a criminal trial the key witness like numbers for all of the key witness has been dead from go right so that you you're still able to prove the case was more yes for a circumstantial type evidence I witness testimony some of that kind of stuff there's even a thing if you know your plaintiff is sick what they the massage therapist had terminal cancer or something his attorney didn't know that this case they had they known that they could have preserved his testimony in advance they could help. video. testimony in advance but they didn't notice that he didn't do that so in a criminal case they just you value waited based on other evidence of this crime and then if they don't really have other evidence of the crime they will often drop the charges if a key witness that now we're talking to our official turn at least a linear I do have a question okay so what you want if that's the case it almost makes it more enticing to kill the key witness. yes

Goldman Sachs has some big predictions for 2019
"Sachs. Raise cash get defensive and look out below more tariffs happened this in the news today. Goldman Sachs not feeling by the way, very bullish about stock market come next year. That's according to its official outlets. And it sent its report out to clients. Now, they are what you call a brainiac firm. They got a lotta brains driving them and brainiac pundits making prognostications. But I wanna I wanna put what Goldman and Merrill and all the other brainiac firms have to say about the market in perspective here quoting from their report. Here's what they say the standard and Poor's five hundred role rise just five percent to three thousand by year. End twenty nineteen ninety bad. I'm pretty cool with that. I'm darn cool with that. They evidently aren't that excited about it? Households mutual funds and pension funds should raise cash Castro represented a competitive asset class stocks for the first time in many years. Okay. So when the average Joe or Jane reads, this they start selling their funds in favor of raising cash. Jane, Joe, you're not a pension fund. A pension fund needs to have liquidity. Because so many people are going to be retiring that year, and they got to write a check to them. And they don't want to have to sell stock. Or bonds that are in a negative cash flow position or a negative position in terms of their valuations. Unless you are one hundred percent invested in stocks and need income like next month. I wouldn't suggest that this is a grand thing for you to do. I think it might be a dumb thing for you to do. Then they go on investors should buy defensive sectors and stocks to write out a tough year where fears of a recession increase. Goldman raised utility sector to overweight in the report as if they know. No, this is yet. Another dumb move because you know, if I would have followed the Warren Buffett say mantra from the last ten years, we would have had our money in value, stocks and technology and growth is killed value. And if I would have followed my own mantra of broad diversification. International emerging markets the whole deal. Those markets got killed. So trying to and by the way, there's great logic behind following a diversified strategy. There's great logic. And following the greatest investor of all time. I'm not suggesting that Buffett was wrong or I was wrong. I'm just suggesting that when someone comes out of the woodwork and says, okay, it's time to move in to fill in the blank. You must be skeptical. Because the real answer is, hey, we're Goldman Sachs and we've got more money than God. But we still don't have a freaking clue what's going to happen to the markets. Come January February May June. August that's next year five years from now, we just don't know. Did Goldman Sachs or any of the big time brainiac firms back in two thousand and seven say, you know, what I'm kind of feeling like a fifty seven percent decline. So let's get the heck out of dodge. Did any of them say all these wonderful financial companies like us are going to get our lunch handed to us here within months. No. So when I read these headlines, I must do. So with quite a bit of John does if you know what I'm saying. But here's their base forecast. Stocks will return seven percent T-Bills three percent and treasuries one percent in two thousand nineteen. So why would you raise cash? Why are you telling people to raise cash when your own forecast says you're going to get seven percent in the stock market?

Two point. Nine billion just missed expectations of fifty. Three point, four one billion, but earnings were five point. Oh, seven dollars per share. Which positively smash the two-dollar fifty cents expectation and wake up from forty cents per share just a year ago, revenue from Amazon web services, rose forty, nine percent to six point one. One billion beating the expectation of six billion. While so. I mean, my first reaction is like, okay, a little bit of a missile revenue, but not much. And we used to talk about Amazon as being the low margin. One like forty cents. Earnings per share is actually pretty good. Fram Assan is what I was saying a year ago at this time, five dollars and what seven cents. I mean it's a whole new Amazon, and it's funny. The Reuters story that I was reading said, you know, mostly on retail and web services. I'm like, yeah, they're to businesses. I mean, yes, they might move into retail a little stronger with with the whole foods acquisitions and Amazon go, yes. There's looks like they might be trying to make a play for pharmaceutical, but that's still just retail, really? And that is the story of Amazon that an full disclosure, this is a household for which owns Amazon stock because my wife works for an Amazon owned company. However. This company is remarkable in that everything that they wanted to do when they were making very, very thin margins has come true. They invested in their in in other elements of their company, and they have continued to build it out, maintain their lead in terms of retail and really built a monster in AWS, which we are always reminded of when there is any kind of outage and you realize that a third of the internet has is now unusable. The fact that Amazon has to jet engines on this plane is very, very, very important because we're gonna get into a discussion about another company that really has one. Yeah, and don't forget. We're not dismissing that that Amazon does own a lot of companies. They own comics and they own twitch and they own audible, and and there's a lot of lot of parts to Amazon, but retail sales, especially online retail sales and Amazon web services are the predominance.
