Stooping to Serve (John 13:14)
"John. Chapter. Thirteen verse fourteen. Jesus says if I then your Lord and teacher have washed your feet. You also ought to wash one another's feet. Obviously this verse. Comes right. In. The middle of. Jesus washing his disciples feet. And you can just imagine the intensity of that scene. As their Lord and teacher. The one they look up to and respect even revere. has just. Gotten down on the floor. And wash their feet done what they would only expect the most. Lowly servant to do. Jesus has just redefined greatness. With a towel and a basin, he is just stooped to be their servant and in the process, show them what it means to be their Lord. That to know Jesus is Lord is to be served by Jesus think about it. Like you and I trust people listening to this podcast most to listen to this you've trusted in Jesus as Lord. What does that mean? I means you've trusted Jesus to save you from your sins to do which you could not do for your yourself to serve you in that way. That's the startling picture of grace in the Gospel, the Gods stoops to serve us to save us from our sins but there's another picture. Besides. That obviously, that's alternate but he's setting an example for his disciples. In fact, he uses those exact words in the very next verse for I've given you an example. But he says, if I your Lord and teach have washed your feet. You also ought to wash. One, another's feet. I, you ought to take the place of the lowly, servant. In each other's lives. Lies of people. Specifically as the church twilight John Wayne just says by this people will know that you're my disciples if you love. One another. How do you love one another by washing each other's feet by serving each other So. I JUST WANNA encourage you to think. Over the next twenty, four hours. I. What is one specific way that you can take the place of a lowly servant if I could use that language? And serve someone else in love. Specifically on a brother sister in Christ may be in your home. Maybe in your church. Just think through how can I do what Jesus has done obviously, not just a one time thing. All pictures were supposed to live this way the God. We prayed elvis to take this step flowing from reading and praying this word. There we would take a deliberate intentional step just as you did Jesus in John Thirteen. To. Stoop to serve in a way that would be surprising. Even shocking. Not. For our own sake by any means a god. But so that someone else might be served maybe there's even an anonymous way. We could do this where would bring no credit or applause or even recognition to us all to you. But God, we pray that you would make us servants like this especially as your church in your church, help us help us to love one another like you love Jesus by serving one another help us to live like this our homes. With our families was to be servants of those around us and then God beyond our families physically we pray that spiritually as your family, you would cause our churches to be marked by this kind of service. To one another by stooping to serve and care for one another in ways that we would not be inclined to do for not for your love at work in our hearts. Help us to reflect your love we pray in Jesus name.

Amy Spowart, Head Of The National Aviation Hall Of Fame
"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.

James Baldwin: The 1967 Detroit Riots
"Recently, I've been thinking a lot about the work of James Baldwin and in particular this one speech that he gave about the racial problem in America. We're GONNA. Hear a click. Today is from Horace, vase nine thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, nine short film called Baldwin's and word, and like so much work. It feels like he's describing this very moment in time, and then the other thing you'll hear I think is his patriotism James. Baldwin wanted to make our country and world the best possible place for everyone that is true of people protesting in one, thousand, nine hundred. Hundred Sixty seven that he describes, and it's also true with people protesting today hearing from Queer figures like James Baldwin it always makes me feel just a little bit more grounded, and I think it also show is why we unfortunately have to continue to say yes. Black lives do matter and I sang. Nut is also just the beginning of the work that we have to do so to that. We've got some links in the show notes. If you're still looking for resources for how involved where to start, he'll check all those out and then without further ado. Here's James Baldwin. School really was the streets of New York City. My frame of Reference was George Washington and John Wayne. And you are formed by what you see choices you'd have to make and later discover what it means to be black in new. York I know how as you grow older, you watch in the richest city in the world the richest. Nation in the world. In the Western World I know how you watch as you grow older. Literally This is not a figure of speech. The cost of your brothers and your sisters pile up around you. Not for anything they have done. They were too young done anything. And the case to help. What one does realize is that? When you try to stand up. And the world in the face like you had a right to be here. When you do that without knowing this the result of it, you have attacked. The entire power structure of the Western, world. And speak plainly. We know. Everybody knows. No matter what recessions in my unhappy country maybe? But we are not. Bothering people out of existence in the name of freedom. Concerned with freedom, boys and girls, not as Istan here, the perishing streets of Harlem. We are concerned with power nothing more than that. In most unluckily for the Western world is consolidated its power. On the backs of people who are now willing to die. Rather than be used. Any longer. In short. The economic range in the Western world. Food to be too expensive for most of the world. And the Western world will change US arrangements. All these arrangements will be changed for them. This is what it's beneath all the rhetoric. And all those ashamed speeches coming from my president. This imposes on us then. Very considerable burden. I for example do have in principle least choice. I can make a living. And well enough known to be an ornament. And Short I could ally myself on the side of what I most seriously considered to be. A criminal nation. But if I can't do that. All the reasons that I can. When is tried?

What you look at what is happening in this country? What really happening is the brother has murdered brother knowing it was his brother. White men have been negroes to be their son. Why women have had negroes burn knowing to be their love. It is at a ratio problem. Is a problem whether or not you're willing to look at your life and be responsible for it. And then begin to change its. That Great Western House I come from one house. Nine one of the children that house. Somebody on the most despised child that house.

You're going to pull us out of this and there's GonNa. Be Something Fun. You'RE GONNA share with us today. Is that correct? That is correct great. They for that great intro so. I've been thinking about it all day. We're all home her trying to figure out ways to you know, entertain ourselves more And I decided to cover a topic this week. That it things about it do come up and trivial a lot so day. This episode is called play your cards right. WHO owns. This is trivia about playing cards interesting I. Don't know a lot about well I'm not a big card player. I'm not a big game person too I. Mean we've talked about this, but I have rarely played a card game, so I'm not that familiar with. Most things about cards so I'm excited, well great. I'm not GonNa talk too much about. Different Card Games per se I. Am GonNa Wind detail, but I'm talking more about like the actual cards themselves. Okay cool so. If you remember in Mr, information to Turbo back from two thousand nineteen. Who could forget? Steve covered the history of playing cards like their origin started in China. They made a to Europe. There's different styles The Germans have different symbols on their cards than the Italians do that kind of thing. Interested in that kind of stuff. Please go back to that episode where he did a great job of covering that. Also there's a really great article. I read on collectors weekly by Simon wintel. It's called the evolution history imagery of playing cards, those published in April, two thousand eight, and there's a lot of great information there, too. Also collectors weekly a surprisingly great resource and excellent publication. I love it. I will digress for a moment so anytime. Anybody talks about how they're afraid of clowns. Yes, I send them this really amazing article from collectors weekly that tops out how? She started as like a trope, and you know the the renaissance period, and how got filtered down, and how they appeared in operas, and what this type of clown, and that type of climate and like clowns actually like weren't actually scary until John Wayne Gay it. True like. Clowns were fine. People like them. That's why when we look back at like our parents at birthday parties when they were little and we're like. What does that thing like? No people liked clowns. Then they were, they were not. Is this source of fear that they are today? It seems but Yeah No. I send that article out. Probably like a couple times a year to people. Yes, I remember using sites great site fabulous site. Shadow to collectors. Anyway back to cards, please. The cards that we use that. We think of as playing cards especially here in North America, but also most most card games at this point used what are called the French suited cards, so there are four suits, hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades. Each suit usually has three picture cards. Those face cards the King Queen and Jack, and then numeral cards from ace, all the way to ten some packs that like special have like fewer or different numerals pursuit, but when we talk about French suited cards a fifty two card deck. That's this is where we're heading. So the graphic symbols that's the hearts, diamonds clubs spades. They're called pips. Like you just like on a die, like all the dots on a diet. On a pair of dice or a single diet, they're called pips as well so the letter or number that you see in the top corner of Card, is called an index, so that players can identify their cards without having to spread them so widely as to risk exposure of their cards to opponents. Oh, that makes a Lotta Sense. and, though French suited cards are again. They're the most common playing cards that are used internationally. There are a lot of countries or regions that use their own regional cards that are preferred many games, but none of those have fifty two cards like when you're talking to fifty hardback. It's a French suited pack. And they almost always come with at least additional special cards, nowadays again called a joker, the long any suit. And they are required for some games and some games that use jokers require them to be distinguishable from one another, so in a lot of modern packs. The jokers are printed in different colors. You might have one that's red and when this blacker when the? Plane and one that's colored where they're given different pictures.

Sung Kang reveals the fight to make 'Better Luck Tomorrow'
"Sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer

"Next. We'll learn how it has been affecting Derry. For centuries now back to the story it known primarily by its most common form pennywise. The dancing clown has endured in pop culture. This is largely due to film adaptations that preyed upon the fears of society in the nineteen ninety s and then the two thousand tens but for money. The nineteen eighty novel by Stephen King remains the richest depiction of the character. If for one central reason the novel does the best job of showing. How EVIL IS SYSTEMIC? Something that takes roots in our culture and is passed down to each generation. It is nearly inescapable taking truly brave and sometimes lucky individuals to overcome it in the novel. Mike Hanlin the only non white member of the loses club is a central character. Even narrating certain passages he learns of two important historical events in Derry. That gives us clues as to its laundry impact. I his father tells him the story of the blackspot. Phya of nineteen thirty. This was roughly thirty years prior to the events of the first parts of the novel when the Losers Club is still children. Roughly one it cycle ago. The blackspot was a popular club in town for the few black residents of dairy one night members of the main legion of whites decency. Essentially a stand in for the KKK callously burned down the club. Dozens died though some escaped including the cook. Dick Halloran who shop listeners will remember was. Danny's mentor in the shining. The racism from the nineteen thirty S is still present in the nineteen fifties when Mike deals with verbal taunts and sometimes physical attacks from bullies. This includes Henry. Bowers WHO's abusive? Father was always jealous of Mike's father. We see how the issues affecting one generation of dairy are rooted in the previous. And perhaps even before that Mike also learns of the Kitchener Ironworks Fire. That took place in Derry in nineteen eight. This wasn't another act of racial violence but rather different sorts of horrific tragedy in which an Easter egg hunt at. The local factory ended in an explosion. It killed nearly a hundred children. One woman found the head of a boy tangled in her backyard tree. That was still chocolate in his teeth. Horrific episodes like this one and the blackspot burning always take place. Roughly thirty years apart in dairy in the case of the ironworks thera- mysterious details such as all of the boilers being. Shut down beforehand. There are often sightings of some sort of weird shape or figure lurking nearby. Mike's Father Remembers that the Knights of the blackspot fire. He saw a giant black bird presiding over the disaster. A bird that his son will later learn is one of its many forms. This is to suggest that it is present. For All of these events acting as the impetus for the generational pain in dairy. And if that's true then it is not just a clown that lives in the sewers. He's all the evil in the town. It's an idea that works on two levels. There's the literal story level where we marvel at the scope of this villains antics but there's also the matter thematic level which leads us to consider how evils such as racism and abuse a not caused by one individual but by decades of unchecked behavior and the cumulative pain of Life's challenges. Of course. This is a Stephen King story so in dairy. The evil is super naturally extreme Mike discovers that Jerry has six times the murder rates of similar towns forty to sixty children disappear every year when his young assistant remarks people must have wicked short tempers? Here Mr Hanlin Mike. Cannoli reply something. Endearing has a wicked short temper. Anyway this alignment between it and dairies. Broader ills reflect. Something we've seen in Stephen King's work before the idea that evil is launch an AAs outside of all of us it pulls at us and seeps through the cracks of each generation filling the recesses of our society and rotting us from the inside out whether the overlook and Annie Wilkes and carry and whoever else are all either fragments of or victims of that evil only. It actually is the evil. He's all of it. The primordial unexplainable reality of all. That's wrong with the world. It is King's greatest villain for this reason. It represents the entire thesis of his full body of work the live action adaptations of it. Tend to lose this aspect of the monster for example Beverly Marsh. The only female member of the losers club deals with an abusive father growing up as an adult. She marries an abusive husband. Who in the book follows her back to Derry and is promptly possessed by it the monster thus becomes her abuse both the father who hurts her as a child and the lover who has outing her now but in recent films this character is almost completely removed. Mike's role is also reduced. None of the backstory with the black spotted. The Iron Works is kept in tact as writer. Casey rife puts it. The result is the defunding of one of the most interesting elements of King's book. The massive inescapable scope of penny wise evil replaced by a more wrote internal individualistic struggle. The film's dupay some visual service to the idea that it has infiltrated the entire town at the beginning of two thousand seventeen. It's a neighbor sees Georgie being attacked and turns away the evil. The suggestion is that it has dulled the adults mines. It has created a world where they just forget about all of their missing children but the movie stopped short of fully exploring these more complex themes. It's a shame because the book version of its provides us with insight into how evil might work in our own lives how our actions might be motivated by things that took place before we were even born. John Wayne Casey. Before he was an infamous serial killer was a little boy who was abused by his alcoholic. Father like we said overcoming these kinds of generational issues text individuals who are brave and who perhaps have some luck side in the book off to the losers club defeats it. They emerged from the sewers to find that though. They are victorious. The town is now being destroyed by a storm. To mark the death of the ancient powerful creature they escaped with their lives. But everyone except bill leaves the town and once again they forget about the monster and a lot of their past trauma king is suggesting they were the only ones lucky enough to escape the hometown and find a better life but for most towns like Derry. The hate and violence is so deeply rooted that it can only be ended by a purifying cataclysm. It surprising then that king has praised. Some of these recent adaptations considering they ended with the town intact with the loses clubs simply celebrating their victory but might very well be that king has changed his stance on the ancient unknowable. Evil he might prefer these more humanistic interpretations because he now sees evil. Is something more human something that comes from within rather than without in a recent interview. He told rolling stone. I have gone back and forth about whether or not. There's an outside evil whether or not as a force in the world that really wants to destroy us from the inside out individually and collectively all weather it all comes from inside and it's all part of genetics and environment. The older I get the less I think that some source of outside devilish influence. It comes from people and unless we're able to address that issue sooner or later we'll kill ourselves maybe king doesn't want his human villains to be able to blame it for their misdeeds. The older writer may want to encourage accountability. Overbroad musings on the nature of evil. It's an interesting trajectory from the alcoholic writer. Who IN ONE THOUSAND? Nine hundred seventy seven invented a whole demon hotel to explain why his fictional alcoholic writer character might go mad or for the recovering alcoholic writer. Who in Nineteen eighty-seven created an evil mid-west superfan as a way of personifying his in the demons? As something outside of himself something attacking him or who. As recently as two thousand eighteen was writing about an ancient boogeyman who literally did bring out the worst in people by becoming them and committing terrible crimes king is human and so we can forgive him for going back and forth on an unknowable cosmic truth but we can't help preferred the version of evil that it the novel presents us with something that does corrupt humanity that pushes it towards its worst instincts. That ironically is a more comforting thought than the idea that humans are evil all on their own but of course humans or plenty capable of sinister deeds in two thousand sixteen justice. The hit film was preparing to theaters.

"He never gets to three instead. His face twists with the massive contorted jaws of a monster and he lunges forward sinking his teeth into skull coming up. We explore how pennywise played into the nineteen eighties fears of stranger danger. Now back to the story pennywise the clown introduced in the one thousand nine hundred Stephen King Novel. It is the most iconic and frightening villain in the king rogues gallery its appeal lies in collective fear of clowns and real-life predators who hide beneath the guys of the children's entertainer film critic Lindsay. Ellis has said that the child murder in it was especially relevant to the nineteen eighty S. Because there was a national fixation and paranoia at the time with child abduction and rightly so as we discussed John Wayne. Gay See. Had only recently been apprehended. After a year's long spree of assaulting and murdering young boys and Casey was known to dress as pogo the clown but Casey was only one part of this wave of fear. There were other high profile child abductions such as that of six year old. Etonian pates who disappeared on his way to school in May nineteen seventy-nine. Not all of this. Fear was rational in some ways. The public was only just now waking up to a problem that had always existed the fading conservatism of the Nineteen Fifties meant that people now openly talk about why kidnappings occur more often than not they lead to sexual abuse for some. This had never been clear and the crimes became that much more. Horrific there was also an increased visibility around quick culture leading the panicked masses to incorrectly. Associate that community with a trend toward American sexual depravity. On top of that more women in the workplace meant more kids home alone and so the hysteria continued to spiral going in to the eighty S. Imagine being a child in nineteen watching news reports about John. Wayne Casey you then go to class and a Shona video where mcgruff. The Crime Dog tells you that you have to be constantly vigilant for all of the creeps in town that just looking to lure you into their cars and do horrible things to you. Then you pick up a copy of Stephen King's it and you discover that these lecherous clowns are not only dangerous but they can also take the form of any fear can be anywhere at any time truly the stuff of nightmares but even beyond these fears. There is something about John. Wayne Casey. That thematically echoes with it. He would spend fourteen years on death row during that time he began to paint and even sold his works for thousands of dollars. Most of the paintings show him as a clown. Some feature that chilling caption. They call him. Mr Gay see it's as if he was taunting the parents of his victims saying they trusted me. I was an authority figure and I took advantage. This reminds us of pennywise. Taunting the losers club with the dead bodies of children in the sewers saying we all float down here so clearly clowns can be scary and sometimes they can even be deadly. But why pennywise as in? Why is he scarier than all the other evil clowns? If you all Stephen King he lays lots of the credit not on his own door but with the work of the first actor to play. Pennywise Tim Curry Curry. Played The clown in the nineteen ninety. Abc Miniseries Adaptation of the book. It's a fairly dated production with some laughable effects and some fairly awful performances but curry stands out his version of pennywise the instance the idea of the Hobo clown. This was an archetype pioneered by performing Emmett Kelly. In the depression era it essentially takes the idea of the clown an adds a sad sensitive side think Wiley Coyote or the squirrel from ice age. Never quite able to catch their lunch. But the Hobo clown archetype has not aged very well audiences today see a man in tattered rags and clown makeup and find the juxtaposition disturbing to be clear. This is a problematic depiction of homeless people who in reality come from all walks of life and suffer from a wide range of systemic issues. That being said its use is subtle enough in the nineteen ninety mini series so as not to be particularly offensive curry's performances more focused on the depression era archetype. His voice is old cranky and uncouth. He says things like Haya Georgie. And won't do any good to run girly boy. He also frequently make solutions to his home in the suicide being a carnival with rides and cotton candy his hair and makeup look like a costume whereas the pennywise of the more modern films has hair and makeup that look like his actual hair and skin which is a little to say that Tim Curry's version of the villain feels like a real man like the kind of stranger you might encounter on your walk home from school or under a bridge that you're not supposed to be exploring. He evokes an even more nightmarish image of Casey badgering kids to get into his van. Ferrall money the creepiest. Seen in the miniseries the moment when this version of pennywise the sharpest is when the loses club sees him and an old picture album that perusing the pages when they catch something I they think it's a trick of the light but then they realize one of the pictures is moving. It shows an old Timey Street Carnival with Cotton Candy Carts and a man on stilts at the back of this crowd easy to miss it. I is a clown doing flips. That bring him closer and closer to the front of the rain. Then he turns seeing the children in the real world for the first time he lets out a deep inhuman growl then he rapidly climbs to the front of the picture ascending streetlamp so that his face is right in the frame. The filmmakers wisely keep the camera in a tight close up on his face so that we feel he is speaking to us then in his cranky old voice he growls. I'll drive you crazy and I'll kill you all this. Oh plays right into the Hobo clown archetype? The old timey photo gives us that sense of unease at looking into the past like seeing ghosts then to have pennywise penetrate that world to appear where he shouldn't be to reveal that he is one of the ghosts of this old world is especially chilling. It's similar to the final image of Stanley Kubrick's the shining adaptation when we see Jack Torrance a modern man trapped in a picture on the wall living forever among the hotel guests of decades past. We think he's not supposed to be there and with pennywise. We don't want him to come any closer. But then he bursts out of the frame and into our world and his Hobo clown voice. The Voice of the angry old man plays on our fears that behind every white clown face is an angry widow. Just ready to kill us. It resonated so strongly with the audience that despite bad reviews the mini series attracted some thirty million viewers. This is incredible for reference. The finale of HBO's game of Thrones One of the most popular television shows in recent history only attracted twenty million viewers. And that was a big budget fantasy epic with modern. Cgi bested by a cranky old man in clown makeup of the mini series. Stephen King says a whole generation of kids between the ages of eight and fourteen was scared shitless by Tim Curry. It was the right movie at the right time. But that was all the way back in nineteen ninety here we are thirty years later and pennywise the dancing clown is just as infamous as ever king also chokes that up to the modern film adaptations of the novel. The movies it and it Chapter. Two pennywise is portrayed by a younger actor. Bill Skarsgard twenty nine at the time of filming compared to Tim. Curry's forty four meaning that this version of pennywise has more of an agility to him. He is constantly making strange movements which take him from his Hobo clown routes into truly alien territory scars gone puts the dancing into dancing clown doing a jig wherein he alternate shooting one leg straight out to the side while pumping his arms while he's in full costume. It's gangly and unsettling on top of this. He's able to completely control his face like a true clown. He has the ability to stick out his lower lip and curl his upper lip into an intense grin forming an almost plastic looking mouth shape skarsgard. God once told an interviewer that this was based on the drooling mouth of a grizzly bear. In addition to the strange grin skarsgard also employs his ability to move one..

"I'm Alistair murden. Today is the final episode in our season on the villains of Stephen King last episode we explored a more recent addition to the King. Rogues Gallery the outsider. Both the book and the show. Follow an ancient foggy. Man That leads us to consider whether evil is real and whether it walks among us it seems that only by believing in the outsider. Also known as El Cuco can we muster the strength to defeat it? Give that episode. Listen if you haven't already today we're finishing Stephen King's season over the course of three episodes we've come to realize that king often presents evil something larger than any individual. Yes humans a flawed but when we fool hottest it's because of larger pole oppo from something evil the overlook hotel alcoholism desire. Today's villain makes all these look like mine evils in comparison in the shed mythology of the Stephen King universe. This thing is the ultimate big bad something so terrible that those who attempt to describe it can only look down in silent horror and spit out one word. Okay so rather than try and pass through the story of this full pound novel while also trying to do analysis how about we just go ahead and get the story. Out of the way shall we? Its tail as old as time. Alien Space Creature crash lands in prehistoric. New England eats all the people living there then sleeps for twenty seven years. It wakes up for twelve months at a time and repeats the process over the course of centuries it finds that it enjoys eating children because they get the most scared and thus tastes the juiciest and so it focuses on turning itself into figures from then nightmares but then a nine thousand nine hundred fifty seven nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight in the movie. It makes a mistake. It kills a six year old. Boy named Georgie Dann. Bro It has killed lots of children. But Georgie had an older brother. Bill and Bill has friends six of them. They called themselves the losers club because this chosen seven have spent their whole lives enduring trauma. Racism Abuse Poverty. They are uniquely equipped to stand up to the monster. The story takes a Surreal. Turn as bill enters the monsters mind and makes it feel small. He makes it clear that the losers club isn't afraid of it the creature shrinks away and they assume they've defeated it. They return to their lives finishing school and mostly leaving dairy twenty seven years pass and something strange happens. The Losers Club forgets they forget about the monster about their friendship about Ho chunks of their childhoods but when Mike Hanlon of the losers club calls them each in turn memories start come back the monsters awake and kids a dying again. They didn't defeat it the first time now. They must take the ritual further with losers club members. Bill and rich she going not just into the creature's mind but it's body ripping out its heart from the moments the novel was released in. Nineteen eighty six. It terrorized the dreams of readers everywhere especially the younger ones but from our description of the story you might not understand the special source that makes it so uniquely terrifying. That's because we've yet to mention its primary form a clown pennywise the dancing clown a man with stock white face paint impossibly red hair and sometimes fangs he sinks into children. He might be wondering how a clown manages to beat the most upsetting villain in a rogue's gallery of king characters stretching back fifty years and yes. There were scary clowns before it. But pennywise is the scariest to understand why this is. We need to first examine. Why clowns are considered so villainous in the first place psychologist. Dr Ramey Nader claims that clowns frighten us. Because we can't read their faces the social cues and indicators of intent are all hidden beneath a layer of white Greece. Nato says there's this inherent mistrust that what they're presenting to you isn't that act surely feeling real life clown Julie Guli rights that people perceive a full face clown as a mythical creature not quite human. These justice have their roots in medieval times when they appeared both on the street corner and in Royal Courts speaking truth to peasant and king alike. This could be amusing but also challenging forcing audience members to examine their preconceived notions about life after hearing a political joke from a clown a king might have to stop and consider whether a particular course of action was the right one villager might see a clown perform a sad mine routine and become more sympathetic to their poor neighbors in this sense. Clowns were unsettling they can make you laugh. Oh make you cry. People didn't know what to expect from them but this effect dimmed somewhat in the Early Twentieth Century. United States clowns often performed with circuses and thus became associated exclusively with fun and entertainment. This is perhaps why we have to question clowns cre- Penis in the first place because for a time. They were seen as the opposite. But this lighthearted public perception primed clowns for a cultural deconstruction in the nineteen eighty s and nineteen ninety s when creators were rebelling against cultural touchstones of the nineteen fifties and sixties. Those Stephen King is often blamed for making clowns creepy. There are other examples. If the creepy clown in the late Twentieth Century Popular Culture Author Benjamin Radford points to DC comics the joker covered on an earlier episode of villains as well as the simpsons crusty the clown the band insane clown posse and the dull from the Steven Spielberg produced film poltergeist. By the time it came around clowns was something to survive something to overcome professor of psychology frank t Andrews ranks there is therefore a certain pleasure in watching characters fighting against an evil clown. He writes we like to learn about dangers in a safe way. So that we're prepared and some unknown future time to deal with them if they ever come our way so by going to see it and watching this evoke clown lure children in and kill them. We learn strategies for avoiding that kind of fate ourselves. Watching or reading about pennywise is thus akin to watching shark week on the Discovery Channel if that sounds far fetched. When are you ever going to run into a clown in the wild? Consider the story of one of America's most infamous serial killers. John Wayne Casey from one thousand nine hundred. Seventy two to nineteen seventy eight. Casey assaulted and murdered at least thirty three young men ranging from ages fourteen to twenty one but he was even more chilling because he had an alter ego pogo the clown it shocked. Americans that gay see a clown and a family man could commit such atrocities many of his victims young enough to indicate that Casey was a pedophile and many of his tactics became codified in the American consciousness. As the go-to strategies of that kind of sex criminal. He would Lewis some of his victims into his vehicle with magic tricks or if they were older with promises of drugs or a job sound familiar. This behavior is channeled in depictions of Pennywise who draws his young victims in with tricks and then promises the thing they want most in the world in one of the only good scenes in the it's chapter two film sorry movie fans we're booked purists when it comes to this villain. Penny Wise Lewis Young girl beneath the bleachers at a sporting event by capturing firefly in its white gloved hands. She's intrigued by this display of Magic. But then when she sees his face the young victims says you're not my friend you're scary. His bulbous faces somewhat menacing in the glow of the firefly's light with its vast forehead and red striped is but it's also enthralling impossible to fully make out that design. Leads you to want more to fully wrap your head around this things shape? Pennywise cries saying his best sad clown voice. People always make fun of the way. I look silly. Oh pennywise you'll never have no friends this resonates with the girl. She says that people make fun of her to do to a red birthmark on her cheek. That little thing he says I can blow that thing right away when poof it'll be gone who it's a promise. A friendship a promise of magic and a promise of the things she wants. Most in the world he beckons her closer and begins the countdown to the magic trick. One to the girl has her eyes turned. But the audience concede that pennywise is I has gone. Sideways and Drool is dripping from his plump lips. It's that uncanny clown face just a little off impossible.

Speaking of Magic Amazon is somehow making the Nazis disappear in news to the Jews. This this week we learned from the New York Times about that Amazon is and I quote quietly canceling its Nazis over the past eighteen months. The retailer has removed books by David. Duke a former the leader of the Ku Klux Klan as well as several titles by George Lincoln Rockwell founder of the American Nazi Party Amazon also prohibited volumes like the ruling elite the Zionist seizure of world power and and history of central banking and the enslavement of mankind from its virtual shelves. What are we think of Amazon? Taking strong hand Nazi literature out of its store. You're I'm not down with it. I'm not either tell you. Because here's the thing. Once you at a major conglomerates start making judgment calls about what is and is is not permissible for its captive audience to read. I think you're sorta screwed actually kind of a free speech absolutist in this way like yes I want everyone three David Duke Doc if only because once you do unless you're total frigging maniacal moron. You'd understand that this is absolute drivel. Actually want like free copies and like every this show be like. Hey guys here you go and try to get your way through mine com- If you can't get twelve pages into it. It's the most boring stuff you'll ever find. The beginning is funny. The middle sags the characterization gets gets a little thin toward the ad still never figured out how it ended. I never read it. No but really like do I really want Amazon making this call them. Why not the next up being like well you know This type of ideology is also quite offensive to us in history is in the type of thing we want people to read. You can imagine agenda that you can imagine where it goes very quickly to Jews in the Middle East or Zionist saying. We don't WanNa read you know the Hamas Charter and Palestinian activists saying we don't want to read. This spoke about the founding of Israel. I mean it's all of a sudden you've a lot of people who authentically believe that they are keeping genocidal literature out of the hands of other people saying what people can and cannot read and you add in the fact that Amazon really does have a kind of monopoly power. What we're reading? Yeah and find the these days of elsewhere.

Helicopter In Kobe Bryant Crash Being Investigated
"The noise the other big story that's been developing all week was the investigation to the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant his daughter and seven other people the investigation has been focusing a lot on the fog and weather but it's also going to look into the helicopter itself and the pilot who received clearance to fly in poor weather conditions there is also been conversation about terrain awareness warning system that possibly could have prevented the rack but in this case that warning system was not present on the helicopter that Kobe was flying on the NTSB has been arguing for a decade and a half that system to prevent crashes should be mandatory helicopters that accommodate six or more passengers such as a Sikorsky S. seventy six helicopter that he was flying in but these efforts have been turned aside from the FAA the NTSB will be releasing a preliminary report on the accident soon but for more on what we know so far we spoke to Chris and Carla he's a news correspondent for I heart media in Los Angeles to tell us a little bit more about what we know about the investigation so far the NTSB right now he's drawing out all of the physical what they call perishable evidence so anything bad maybe call it did hear a dog in the open or that needs to be collected in order to piece together the puzzle a little bit later there could be looking at many different aspects of this crash though that people given the books of the company they'll get into the background of the pilot we'll get it there what the air traffic look like around southern California during that time and of course they'll get into the weather what were the conditions like they'll look at the engine of the aircraft to see if there was any malfunction or error there and then they'll also looking to be a mechanic that the aircraft industry that are everything was in good working order so all of that ball together is going to be the broader NTSB investigation what we heard today was a more ironed out time line of this flight that they took off John Wayne airport down in Santa Ana which is about seventy miles from Cameri out and it started its white worked its way up to Burbank and it without Burbank that the pilot requested to go from visual flight rules to special VFR special visual flight rules eat put in that request and the reason if you wanted a transit some air space there all along those with special rules which basically says that you can fly when the feeling of the feeling of below one thousand P. which is kind of a basic minimum and also with less than three miles of visibility so they ended up circling right around the the airport there Burbank about twelve minutes hold that request was approved and it was at that point that they started to work their way back down the one eighteen freeway and using the freeway they follow the one eighteen to the one on one end and work their way down toward camera as they are packed Burbank the band I fear space they then requested fly straight through the Cameri which was where they were going to land the the pilot requested what's called flight following and basically that just means there's a constant contact if you will between air traffic control and the pilot the air traffic control that that the pilot was flying too low for flight following that's not necessarily a warning as much as the it's just a statement of who we are we can help you out based on where you are can't get a new whatever it is that they need in order to maintain that following the pilot been requested two wives add to avoid a cloud layer and ask the air traffic control for clearance I was the last contact between the pilot and an air traffic control so of radar indicated that the aircraft rose to about twenty three hundred feet and then there was the old black descending turned and then that was the last radar contact what we know on the ground is that when it hit it was at just about one thousand eighty five feet above sea level and the the pre field is about five to six hundred feet they've got a pretty it didn't scatter you know if you if you think about your crap accidents and crashes often those debris fields will last for maybe a half mile or a mile or even further so they can join idea of just how hard the aircraft was able to it hit the surface there yeah and it's still it does really seem like the weather I've probably played the most important factor obvious we don't know yet if there was any type of mechanical failure or whatnot but just all those requests or and and he was granted the pilot was granted to fly in these poor weather conditions it just really seems that all of that is adding up to what was the culprit and as you said in the end when he climbed up and then drop back down so rapidly that was where everybody unfortunately perished and and you know investigators and and corners were out there trying to gather remains and even the terrain there is a little difficult they all had to to hike in and and be flown in as well yeah so the NTSB is actually asking for pictures for people who are around Calabasas and had taken pictures of the weather conditions or had taken pictures somewhere near the crash site they can get an idea of what the weather conditions were like they were also pretty quickly after making that request did they were pretty quick if they live and it's not that we're just focusing on the weather here there are all of these other factors we have to look into but this is just one important piece of the puzzle certainly there are and there is a lot of reporting out there about how difficult it is the flying conditions like this how big back while there was it specifically above Cameri all our Q. three above but how about this and how easy perhaps we could have been for the pilot to become disoriented while the either asking for that for that increase in altitude or while out what movie across what had been activated is that the aircraft hit the help that is a pretty high rate of speed around a hundred sixty miles an hour so yeah they they they told you that the pilot was at least moving with a certain degree of purpose yeah and every time there's a crash a plane crash or something like that people always ask is there a black box and that's not the case with this one right there's nothing there was no black box on this helicopter no they're not required to be black box on aircraft like that and yet in court to talk about the aircraft as well as the course you that if the twin engine aircraft built yeah that that's important when you're trying to narrow down the possibilities of what could happen because yeah we have two engine I mean one failed you least have enough power to to work your way back down to the ground in an emergency landing in in this case we didn't hear any sort of emergency call there was no mayday that we know of infer that tells you that whatever happened happened quickly and was catastrophic enough that the pilot couldn't even get anything out on the radio which in most cases is instantaneous it's always important to remember the victims and all of this obviously everybody knows Kobe Bryant and and you know the world the sports world a lot of people really feel for that but you know it also included in the victims were his thirteen year old daughter Johnnie who goes by Gigi us some of her friends that I play basketball with her their parents and coaches I mean that they were on their way to one of Kobe's sports at tournaments are one of the or their basketball tournaments where his daughter was going to play and you know these were all just people United by the sport of basketball obviously a lot has been made about his daughter and her aspirations with basketball and they've seat been seen together at Laker games but these are the victims really a very close knit group of of people who who played basketball together and he coached the team things like that yeah you know it's important to think about this in the in the context of what they were doing and where they were going so that the mamba cop was this big back all tournament and I thought that the mamba sports academy which was something started in created by Kobe Bryant not just for use force but also yeah I'll be here great stories about NBA players who trained up there with Kobe or with other players it's just a really nice facility or not only basketball but also other sports like volleyball up there and so you you're you've got these people that are geared to go go back up there again there down in Newport beach seventy air miles from from thousand oaks and if anybody knows anything about southern California Subir mild bout five hours of driving when you really consider traffic even on a Sunday so that they give you an idea of why graph they were flying up there and they're flying up there with the number of people who were from the neighborhood and yeah I guess not really hidden within the strategy but certainly a piece of the strategy tragedy if you have a couple of families that are just but I mean they're incredibly impacted the other fellow for all the belly family had three family members the the father the wife and one of their daughters on that flight so you've got I think there are two other kids who now are having to deal with basically losing more than half of their family Chris and Carla news correspondent for I heart media based in Los Angeles thank you for joining us yeah of course

"But but barely remember it. Okay. Well, we've got some John Wayne controversy for you nineteen seventy one he gave an interview to playboy magazine. And here's what he said, quote, I believe in white supremacy. We can't all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks. Oh. Now. That's then he says, I don't feel guilty about the fact that five or ten generations ago. These people were slaves, I'm not condoning slavery. It's just a fact of life like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces. So he can't play football with the rest of us shocking. Right. Bad horrible. Optimal. You could try to explain it away with him saying, look, I'm not responsible for slavery. Because that's what that's what we say. Now. I wasn't here. He saying I wasn't here. Okay. But it's still horrible last one. I don't feel. We did this is about native Americans, which I have some news on. I don't feel that we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. If that's what you're asking. Our so called stealing of this country. From them was a matter of survival. There are great numbers of people who needed new land. And the Indians were so viciously tried to even for themselves. Okay. So none of these are good. None of these are good. Fellow bad. Who cares? Who cares? John Wayne plays no role except in the image of the tough. You know, Matthew. Masculinity. Really? The nice guy the American wholesome clean cut yet. He's going to stand his ground. You've got to destroy it to its core. That's the only reason why this is coming out. Now is you have to destroy every bit of it everything in that foundation. Every memory every image. You have to look John, Wayne, you gotta take those pictures of that tough cowboy 'cause that's the face that most of most of the world thought of when they thought of America, and that tough pioneer cowboy they thought of him you got to now replace that with he's a monster. When will we start going through the works and the papers of Margaret Sanger? When will we start going through the works in the papers of Franklin Delano Roosevelt? When will we start going through the words and works of Lyndon? Baines Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Woodrow Wilson. I mean huge races. He's segregated Washington. DC? Due. Rod back, the KKK. All other with Bernard sandards are Saint by the way was seventy one for for John Wayne seventy two for Bernie Sanders. We read the the disgusting revolting piece that he wrote it was weird sexual stuff. We don't need to get into it, man and woman. Yeah. Fantasies easily rape that women have rape fantasies. Here. It is here. It is a man goes, home and pleasures himself. His typical fantasy a woman owner knees. A woman tied up a woman abused. Now, I'm gonna take John Wayne over that guy. A million times over a woman in joys sexual relations with her man as she fantasizes about being raped by three men simultaneously Bernard. Sanders years that is disgusting which one I can confirm that that's not true. My wife did that too. But I said, you're you're you're way out of the mainstream. I'm sure so here's we may just be prudes. But here's the thing. I'm gonna make a pretty pulled stand here. I will never hire John Wayne to in anything and if anyone hires him, and they put John Wayne into a movie today. I will boycott that company. What if what if it's a choice between Elizabeth Warren and John Wayne for president? I will vote for a liberal. Toi toi toi after vote for Elizabeth Warren. I won't vote for John Wayne, my gosh, that's what I'll tell you until they closed the curtain at the bare minimum. He should be stripped of committee assignments immediately day, he should never serve as president. Now, the left. What are you going to do? What are you going to do because I won't vote for Bernie Sanders either? They do what they did with centers. So they gave him three point three million dollars in forty eight hours..
