A Look at Jennie Livingston's 1990 documentary Paris is Burning
"Hello and welcome to Queer as fiction we talk about Queer historical media I'm Jason and I may lie and today we're talking about Jenny. Livingston's nineteen ninety. Documentary. Paris's Bang. Before we start, we have a few called him warnings to this episode. This episode contains mentions of Racism Transphobia Homophobia the AIDS epidemic murder and family rejection. It also contains the use of outdated language surefooted by Queer people on people, call it in courts. If any of that sounds like something, you don't want to listen to please feel free to check out one of. Our other episodes. So I wanted to stop this episode by explaining what is Paris's banning because I feel like a lot of listeners probably a pretty good understanding of this documentary. Some very young listeners may not have seen it. I said Hanson had you seen it before we researched this ups lot no but I had a pirated version of a hard drive for decades. I love with things and have adhd. reasonable. So I was aware of it but I hadn't actually seen it. Yeah. I think I heard the name but didn't know what it was. So Paris is burning is a documentary about the bowl culture scene of New York in the nineteen eighties prominently featuring the African American and Latin American members of that community many among gay and or trans. It documents how they lives intersect with the Bulls the form, the Bulls tight and contains several interviews, participants, explaining concepts, such shade, realness reading, and legendary woods that may be familiar to a modern audience given how by propagated in popular drag culture. Yeah on TIKTOK. The documentary features no narration and very little dialogue from the interview wide lesbian filmmaker. Jenny. Livingston prominent members of several houses in the scene featured including pepple of Asia during Corey Angie Extravaganza and Willi? Ninja. I'll make a nerd here on pronounce while several of the performance featured in Paris boning. Ambiguously Trans Women and so I'm GonNa to share pronounced where I don't have specific evidence I. Do want to note that pepple of Asia describes himself in the documentary is not being woman not understanding the experience of womanhood and being on In a sex change however, her two thousand and three obituary in the new. York. Times describes her as preferring in pronounce ongoing with that as the more recent source compared to this documentary which was filmed in the eighties. So having talked about what Paris has been is I want to I going to kind of how was made so as described by Academic Lucas, Hildebrand in his twenty thirteen book quit film classics Piracy's Boning, which was a major source when I was researching this episode Livingston was taking a film production class at NEOCON. INVESTI windshield observed three young men voguish in Washington. Square Park after asking what they were doing she was invited to an upcoming bowl and soon thereafter began documenting the scene via black and white photographs and audio interviews which were kind of the mediums in which she worked at the time. She was really documentary filmmaker. This was her first data and she since gone on to make several more films which obviously less notable. Because I don't know what they. Yeah. That's pretty wild. Are they on like queer things. Yeah I, believe her I think there's like Queer Antenna. Seems to many of her films. So yeah, it was only the light of that. She began filming the balls and coming up with the idea of turning these into a documentary. Film took seven years to make in no small pod Judah. The struggles Livingston had funding its production. She initially intended it to be appealing observational documentary just kind of following the lives of the Queen's involved in the same but lacked the funding to shoot the endless hours of footage that would be required for such a production. I'm not really an expert on how documentary films of made. Films something like seventy or eighty hours of footage as it is. So like, wow, that must have been. Lot of what is required for something without the kind of caught away stained. Interesting to think about funding a project like this in like post the iphone world. Because there's like a very like obviously a useless modern. Just, film it like whistle the money going yeah. It's like it's interesting. She talks about the various ways in which the film was funded was funded by a bunch of different organization. Thirteen. Different organizations contributed funding including the baby say. And she stalked interviews about how? It's the late eighties you conscious show someone from the BBC your footage you have to fly someone out from. England oh. Wow. Yeah. My Gosh and show them a physical film real. So is that indicative of a certain level of like promises project was seen to have if she was able to show it to someone like that or did this happen quite routinely it was just logistically difficult Y-. Oh. Yeah. So instead of a purely observational documentary, the earlier interviews that she'd recorded were bought back and more interviews were conducted. Most notably interviews conducted in one thousand, nine, hundred, nine broad sense of narrative to the film by depicting the commercial success of Willi Ninja, as well as the tragic murder of Vance Extravaganza young star in the bowl seen who features prominently throughout the Documentary Livingston has self describes the film making process as followers. Suddenly, the people I filmed worked with me in pop because I represented a chance to speak out to be in front of a camera to show off I, consider Paris burning collaboration on the deepest level, the people who. Are Articulate funny poised while the editor and I made coherent full that we saw the documentary was truly written by the bowl people themselves I use that quite because questions of narrative agency consent and understanding of the nature of the documentaries production became deeply controversial upon the film's release and will form a pot about lighter discussion. But before we get into that, I wanted to do a bit
Nations Come and Fall (Ezekiel 26:1718)
"Zeki chapter twenty, six, versus seventeen, and eighteen. And they will raise a lamentation over you and say to you how you have perished. You were inhabited from the sees Oh city renowned who is mighty on the see she and her inhabitants imposed their terror on all her inhabitants. Now, the coastlands Trimble on the day of your fall and the coastlands that are on the sea are dismayed at your passing. So this is. The end of two chapters in Ezekiel Chapter Twenty Five, twenty six to begin a series of chapters in the book of Ezekiel where God tells Ezekiel to Prophesy Against Not his people in Judah, the people of God of Israel instead to the neighbors, the nations, surrounding Judah, surrounding his people. So chapter twenty, five starts with the prophecy against Ammon and MOAB and seer and eat him and Felicita and then chapter twenty six begins a prophecy against tire and that's what this whole chapters about. The reason, I read these two verses WanNa pray according to them versus seventeen and eighteen is because God is. Speaking to a nation and a people that had prospered. and. He's talking about how they were mighty on the sea and imposing terror on others they were renowned. But now in an instant God says all of that would be taken away. And he would bring them low and the coast lands would be dismayed at how this once renowned powerful people just like that were gone. Just like that, when the total opposite direction and reading these chapters, these prophecies from God through Ezekiel among the nations is a sobering reminder. That no matter. How Great. Powerful Influential a nation might be. My claim to be might be perceived to be. Nations come and fall and can fall just like that at the sovereign decree of God. And particularly as well. We think about any nation I, know people listen to this podcast and different countries around the world many maybe most from the United States? I just. Want us to be reminded from God's word. No matter what nation we live in and no matter how powerful that nation. May being or claim to be or be perceived to be. Is ultimately in the hands of. An instant everything could change. So. God We. Humble ourselves before you. As Your people in United States. And many other different nations. And we. Humbly confess acknowledged that you are lord and sovereign over. All nations that you hold the United States every other nation in the palm of your hand you raise and you make Lo, and you can do either one in an instant and so God. We pray that you would turn our hearts to you. God We pray just compelled to pray based on. Zeki Chapter? Twenty six for spiritual getting in my own nation in the united. States got we need you save us from ourselves. We have in so many ways turn from you so much that we have approved is displeasing to you dishonoring to you.

Help Us to Obey (Ezekiel 23:49)
"Ezekiel Chapter Twenty Three Verse Forty Nine And they shall return your. Lewdness. Upon you. And you shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry. And you shall know that I am the Lord God. So, this is the last verse in a long chapter. The depicts God's people as two women. One Who represents Samaria? The capital of the northern Kingdom of Israel among God's people. And the other who represents Jerusalem the capital of the southern Kingdom of Judah. God's people there. And the whole chapter describes how. God showed his judgment how God showed his judgment on the northern Kingdom of Israel Samaria. By delivering them over to the Assyrians. And then how God showed his judgment among the southern kingdom, his people in Judah specifically that capital Jerusalem by delivering them over to the Babylonians. and. Then you get to the very end of the chapter and Gajah says very clearly. Very plainly after forty eight verses of this depiction of women who have committed adultery who have committed idolatry as God's people. At the very end God says, you shall bear the penalty for your central. Trie. A. You shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry as you hear that phrase. I just think this is a simple principle. I think about going into details a a discipline conversation that heather and I were having our children recently. And we've had this conversation up million times. It seems like with different children I when you disobey. There will be consequences like it is not good to disobey. Is Good to obey that leads to good things when you disobey that leads to bad things and that's The Clear simple principle that God is saying over and over again in the book of Ezekiel. And he says it right here you shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry idolatry. Is, not, good, it does not lead to good. Immorality disobedience is not good at does not lead to good. This seems so basic yet how often? Do. We need to be reminded of this. As we are tempted every day to disobey in different ways. And God says to us in his word by his spirit over and over and over again, it is good to obey it is not good to disobey. So in a fresh way today Oh God, we pray. Help us. To choose that which is good. Today. Or, if we're listen this is we're gonna bed and night stowe wake up in the morning remembering that it's good to obey listening this at the very beginning of our day or somewhere else like as always we have time left in this day God, help us to choose that which is good. Help us to obey you help us to trust you help us to worship you alone. God please keep us from idolatry immorality disobedience and all that flows from it. Today and tomorrow in the next day to choose obedience.

Demonstrate God's Word in Your Life (Ezekiel 4:4-8)
"Zekiye chapter four versus four through eight. Then, lie on your left side and place the punishment of the House of Israel upon it. For the number of the days that you lie on it, you shall bear their punishment. FRY signed to you a number of days three, hundred, ninety days. Equal. To the number of the years of their punishment. So long. Shall you bear the punishment of the House of Israel? And when you've completed. You should lie down a second time but on your right side and bear the punishment of the House of Judah. Forty days I assign you a day for each ear and you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm Baird and you shall prophesy against the city. And behold I will place cords upon you. So you cannot turn from one side to the other till you have completed the days of your siege. And so much we could talk about in these verses but the basic picture is God is calling Ezekiel as a prophet to do two things one to prophesy about the city. So to speak the words of God and to tell what God has said to him to the people and then second to demonstrate these words with his life. He's specifically talking about the punishment of the House of Israel the punishment of the House of Judah, basically God's judgment on Israel and Judah and how he would take action specifically lying on his left side for three hundred ninety days. On his right side for forty days representing the number of years associated with judgement punishment toward the House of Israel and the House of Judah we don't know specifics of how this would play out like for all those three hundred ninety days on the left side and forty days on the right side. But basically. Lying there for long periods of time on those days, unable to turn from one side to the other as a demonstration is an illustration is a picture of the words he's speaking. Now, how does that lead us to pray? Why want wants to think about our lives, your life, my life today this week. So again, we're seeing this over and over again, there unique things about Ezekiel Old Testament prophets but there are also parallels to our lives as women who have received the word of God and have the spirit of God and us have been commissioned to proclaim the word of God, not just with our words. But with our actions with lives that are fluctuation of the words, we proclaim the words we believe the words God has spoken. And Specifically. I was reading this and as I. WanNa lead us to pray I was thinking about people who are going through difficult times difficult circumstances. Could it be than even or difficult circumstances situations we walk through? That there are things we are portraying about who got is in the midst of hard times that are intended by God to be a reflection of the truth we believe. Of the word that we hold fast to just like we see in Paul throughout the New Testament saying I, fill up what is lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions. He's not saying that he experiences suffering in the exact same way as Jesus did, but he is saying that he shares in the sufferings of Christ he shows the supremacy. Of Christ, he shows the joy of Christ that even when times are hard and difficult and he is holding fast joy and peace and courage and confidence in the middle of that he is displaying Christ he is reflecting the word of Christ in his life. So God, I pray the you would help us all today to embody you word. To reflect your word, not just with our mouths Oh God. Yes. As we prayed recent days help us to reflect your word with our mouths helps to speak your word to give witness to your word to warn people of coming judgment to share the good news of Your Grace and gallery. Pray that amidst whatever is going on in our lives. Right now, you would help us to reflect your word in our lives. Guttering, we pray that you would help us to reflect your joy even in the middle of suffering. We pray the you'd help us to reflect your strength and our weakness. Gharib, we pray that you help us to reflect your peace amidst so much unrest. Around us. Maybe specifically in our circumstances or just unrest in the world gunnery prayed help us to reflect your piece. Got Re pray that our lives would be demonstration today and this week of the truth we believe and we hold fast to God 'cause you're a word to be clear in our mouths and clear in our lives we pray. In Jesus name. Amen.
EA's Competitive Vision & What Esports Means To Them - With Todd Sitrin
"So I guess going into that question that we wanted to talk about about what what the game in a sport I feel like in the poss, you know as sports titles became a sports accident. Counter Strike one point six, thirty, two united battlefield to play. None of these guys would develop the style with a sports in mind but I just happened to become that way Judah having certain factors to do with the game I'm interested in learning for me like is there a special formula that that makes game in sport your mind? I would never use the term formula, which makes it seem like. Crying out entertainment and Is Never. That easy. You know I think there's a few wins to look at that question and the heart of it is at to some degree as is what? Beyond just the community thing. Hey, we liked to watch people play. And many communities have done and it sort of built up. The need for I'd say Super Smash Brothers is an example of out where the community basically just rally around. Here's a game that hasn't really been. Updated for a long time and yet the community's still wants to do that. from a publisher point of view. I think you have to ask the question why are you doing any sports in the first place and I think there are two reasons I can tell you why E as the The first is it is a marketing vehicle for the video games right? People see people playing the game they get to know the game they get excited about it. It drives them too many purchase the game or drives them back to engage in the game, and that's you know that is the reason why sports was created and that is actually the reason that the vast majority of the eastwards industry is based on that and that's how they measure their success. So the question is, can you build a big enough? In can you engage a? Viewer to become a player or. As. The case. Were taking we're not really trying to necessarily grow the player base were just trying to get more, engaged our aims and so free to play games that you know have a revenue stream that come from people playing the game more and more. That's where the birth of these all came from. And they're still they're still like that Doda too. I think is bill clearly on that model. But there's a difference of reason also too which I think there are a few of us that are. Publicly saying this is what we wanted to as well, which is to create a media business based upon your show. and. That treating the eastward as a entertainment property unto itself that you can make money from through meteorites, sponsorship, merchandising, etc, and. I think that's much smaller group of companies publishers that are trying to do that. And so when it comes back to your question, which is what's sinise sport I think it kind of gets answered based upon what what's your. What's your goal? For us, we look at it and saved will look at the bare minimum you need a game that. Is Competitive in nature writing and it has to be honestly legally it has to be competitive in nature writes out yet to pass certain governmental rules around what what what is. What it was an actual game competitive game. So that's like bare minimum but clearly we look at things allied engages the community right? Guess Start from zero very few examples were games have started from zero to create east sports normally to gain was already a certain level popularity beforehand. So we're not worded the competitive gaming. Room. The first two games that I went behind was Viva Matt. Why be the biggest one of the biggest games in the world certainly the biggest game? And Man is the biggest game one of the biggest games. North. American sort wait the biggest gain the AD in North America on the sports side, and so that was really based on their competitor. Yes. They have engaged communities and they're they're quite big So you know to me that's the starting
Bible Study: Lamentations 1-2
"Today. We dropped in on the book of Lamentations. No one knows who wrote this book but most people throughout history have connected it to the major, Prophet Jeremiah it's a book of poetry written as a lament over the destruction of Jerusalem and the Babylonian. So who better to offer up that kind of book than someone known as the weeping prophet not only is Jerusalem's destruction the worst thing that has ever happened to the people of Israel by far. But Jeremiah himself had spent years warning them about it while suffering the consequences of their unwillingness to listen. Chapter. One focuses on the destruction of the City of Jerusalem Aka Zion the once thriving capital of Judah has been emptied out her enemies rule over her former inhabitants they've lost everything. All along God has been asking them to remember and now they finally do but they don't remember him. They remember the things they used to have in the peace they used to experience I. Seven says Jerusalem remembers in the days of her affliction and wandering all the precious things that were hers from days of old not only did Jerusalem forget what God had done in their past, but they also forget what God has promised for their future. Anytime. We choose sin. We fail to consider the future sin occurs when we live so much in the present that we forget about the eternal kingdom sin is short-sighted. The Israelites are living in nostalgia for a time when they'd been disobedient to God. They longed for the days when things were easier for them. But if you recall those were days when they were. Their children and worshipping idols at the high places? This is not exactly righteous morning. There is a way to grieve and mourn to the glory of God but so far in lamentations this isn't it? The author goes on to express all the ways God has directed this destruction chapter. One tells us that God afflicted them. He inflicted sorrow he sent fire authority their efforts he weakens them and handed them over to their enemies and it's true. They're not wrongly blaming God God has been telling them all along. He would do these things that they didn't repent. And the author shows us that Judah finally owns their role in this. It says, the Lord is in the right for I have rebelled against his word. Not only does this verse reminder that God is just, but it also makes the truths versus twelve through sixteen. Bearable. An inverse twenty, it sounds like Jerusalem truly repents. It says, my heart is wrong within me because I have been very rebellious. They mourn grieve their actions not just the consequences. Meanwhile, they're enemies gloat over what's happening to them in chapter two, we get a second poem about the fall and destruction of Jerusalem. It points outweighs that their relationship with God has been affected by this disaster verse five says the Lord has become. Like an enemy like an enemy is not an enemy, but it certainly feels like it to them but they know that his actions were justified. He was enacting a necessary discipline for their sins the consequences of this disciplined reach further than just the destruction of their home. In addition to that God, himself seems to go radio silent prophets have no visions or words from the Lord the elder sit on the ground in silence. When I've been through emotionally challenging situations sometimes, the only piece I can access is the nearness of God and the comfort of his word if I didn't have that, I would absolutely despair. Actually, experienced that once wrecked me the silence of God is devastating and it exacerbates the pain of the trials. If you're in that space right now and you feel alone, you're not alone God is drawing near to you. Even you fix your eyes on these pages. The time of your trial does have an end. Okay. Back to, Judah they know this is all part of God's plan I seventeen says the Lord has done what he purposed. He has carried out his word which he commanded long ago. Maybe they're finally remembering that this is what he's been warning them about this is not some knee jerk reaction to their sin God hasn't lost his temper. In the midst of Judas worst tragedy I love that we're reminded that God is patient and methodical. We aren't walking on eggshells around him. He hasn't volatile unpredictable in that way. My God shot was the very existence of this book in scripture. What does it reveal to us about God that he included this book for us? I believe it shows us that he is eight God who can not only handle our feelings and emotions, but also values them and wants to engage with us on that level. Chapter. Two Verse Nineteen says it like this. Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord. These poems contain a lot of feelings and frustrations and the author pours it out unguarded before the Lord. God receives values our emotions even when they're the result of our sins, you want us to talk with him about what we're feeling. We've seen all along how he's after our hearts. It doesn't just want a one dimensional glossy love. He engages with the good the bad and the ugly in our hearts. How else can he work with us on those levels if we keep the ugly emotions back from him?

"Yeah, so together I drove up to Lake Tahoe in your driveway. You go through the three ninety five. This was a couple of weeks ago and you drive. You drive through these very small towns where the where the speed limit goes down to dip. My God goes down to like twenty five. Is your passing by school in Thirty Five? Meanwhile, you've just been going like seventy nine miles an hour to go all the way down. It's hard for people to go all the way down, but as you come out of the town, there's like it goes up to forty five goes up to. Goes Up to sixty and seventy in your backup, and you're going so I was leaving this town that I had not. I not been too so we like made a detour till to stop at this one place. And then we moved on and I never been to this part of the town. I've driven thing before, and I was like we got out of the town and I'm like okay. We're starting to get back on. On the highway I can actually like. Pick it up and start going again. And I went up to like seventy seven miles an hour, and I saw a cop car coming this way it was horry land road kind of come towards me, and he turned his lights on and spun around in my back because they gun me going like seventy seven miles an hour, and literally three hundred yards away. It moved up to seventy. And I was that and I literally told the guys like I've never been here I have my id right outer I, said my family in the car. Their kids were pissed was like I'm so sorry I have never been in this place, and I thought this be them, and they're like there were three signs telling you what it was I was. Like I know, but usually when you get out of the town, it's. Actually there wasn't there wasn't through. Show me, but that is a ticket. Yeah, gave me a ticket, but he lowered it down to only ten miles over the speed limit. What a nice fellow! Nice or at still okay well. The Queen Police say that after they let them go. After they heard this incredible story and saw the dead snake that proved it. Yeah, you got a dead snake to prove it, or does this Guy Dr? Driver on the dead snake in his car. We can speed you know sometimes if you're if the cops are bastards in your area. Dead. But I can understand. You can understand a dead snake every once. Queens and police released Bodycam. Put into the roadside. Stop on Wednesday in a facebook post that admitted the slimy passenger would make any driver hysterical. I got. It is not me. I hate it. Dan Video shows Jimmy telling police. He's just killed a deadly brown snake. That may have been him on the leg, so he's. freaking out, yes, it is a brown snake, the yes. The worst bad it says he says I. Think it has bitten me. It was in the car with me. Jimmy tells the officer in the body can't put. You can feel my heart mate so now he's like. Ask you get in here. Put Your hands. Where I'm at this is his version cry. China cry is way I'm going to show you guys. Up Judah. Michelle you guys a picture of Jimmy and it look I'm not saying he's making it up, but he looks like every guy who's got a story. Look at this guy. He just looks like Oh. You are not going to believe y'all. Yeah I hear you Australian redneck. He also looks like a guy who might have snakes in his Co... PERCENT? Got Just in case snake. Yeah, I. He's got snakes everywhere. Just be like honey. I'm sorry I was laid a snake. Almost we are used that excuse all right right It's in the car with me, tells the officer. You can feel my heart. The snake or the I'm sorry. The officer is initially skeptical, but Jimmy points to the bed of the truck where the dead snake is draped across some bags. Oh, that one? The officer says she uses police. The other one police called paramedics and waited with Jimmy until they arrived, the frightened driver, told police at the snake came into the trunk near his gear, stick and started climbing up between his legs. Could you imagine my guide and you're like what is on what is rolling? Feeling right? They're GONNA water bottle. Sees. He started to wrap around me then it's head. Just started striking the chair. He says. Jimmy Jimmy ultimately pulled over killed the snake with his knife, then tossed it in back. He took off again at high speed for the nearest hospital, fearing he'd been bitten by venomous case, so that was why speeding paramedics determined. That was in shock, but had not been bitten at all, so he's hysterical. Crazy yeah. He said it's bloody terrifying to be told police, he added that he was relieved to be pulled over I've never been so happy to see red and blue lights, so that's probably also weird for cops. When they pull you, thank God. Is You're here? You're here. I've done a lot of illegal shit in my time and I'm just so happy that finally. This isn't one of those times you guys here for the snake. No, Sir, no in your car. That is so crazy. The eastern Brown snake is a highly venomous snake and one of the deadliest in the World Quincy. Police wrote in a news release. They added that the snakes are protected under Queensland. Law, but this was particularly unique situation. Self-defense Bro Right but you're not supposed to kill these snakes. Like, he didn't have a choice, so Jimmy managed to avoid getting a ticket or a snake bite from the encounter and you know the cops probably waited so long. They went back to their car and just sat there and waited like. We're not going to give you a ticket this. You know what I mean they way. Looking at paperwork and looking. At it out, yeah! They said that he'll probably be peaking under his seat for snakes for the rest of his life. Oh. Yeah, yeah, the second only ruins you forever, but also Australia. You might as you might want to start doing that pre pre snake fight. This is what I said so many things can kill you. In Australia spiders spiders that like birds and you're like Geez. This place spider eats a Koala gives you. Syphilis or qualities can give you. Accept what all like a point in time! Where like ninety three percent of all qualified Clemencia had Clemencia. Floods. Yeah, yeah, and they spread it..

Are you able to? It's been really cool and. Show what I love watching the live is that there's a moment where you'll just up to the audience in your ability to to just rip off them, so do you open it up on zoom because you can see faces and stuff, and they ask you questions, and you improvise the shows interactive, so it's It's not a zoom, Webinar? CanNot interact with the performers you know, I have it so that as an audience member you can always here and see me, and then you have the option to make yourself visible and hurt so that I can see in here you scrape.

Down, yeah. It's just it's hilarious. Well. It's so funny because in the world of zoom in and the way that's taken over I feel like it. It happened so fast as the way to keep business going, but people don't realize that like. Yeah, you bring your phone into. Stay on zoom call while you go to the bathroom, but you're still on camera dummy or like. Like, yeah, there's like a Brazilian Mexican a Mexican Santa's senator who took her she.

This story on Yeah did Maeve in the car did even know. Is this his snake police here? Plenty of wild excuses when they pull a person over for speeding, but one Australia man's real story, they wrote.

I love to the Star we don't care you're. In Jamie. We donate your night. He says he used a knife and a seat belt to fight off a deadly brown snake that had coiled around his leg while he was driving a truck in Queensland Australia. You imagine the feeling just a fear driving your. Stories Real. Yeah, because if you were lying, you would never think Oh, yeah I had to use my seatbelt to fight. The great thing is AJ whole. bullshitting. Around his leg his neck right so but. Most people haven't fought snakes before, so you can imagine like how quick things are and the chaos. Probably just grabbing the seat belt and I see that being something that happened. Not on hooking always seatbelt with the belt itself the metal part and just trying. Gas while you go for your life while you're also trying to drive a truck. Eases imagine you're the other people on the road is that? ASSHOLE DO? He's drunk. Drunk. This all happened on June fifteenth police pulled him over after clocking the vehicle going. How many miles an hour do you guys think this was going? How fast you think he was going. To thirty, five, thirty five. How speeding so I'm going to say one hundred, ten, one, hundred ten, and then is going about eighty one close. The answer is seventy six. Our close, but ed also doesn't say like. What is that in thirty five then then you're crazy, probably seventy six in a fifty five. You can't get mad at this guy.

2 Kings 19 and Psalm 46, 80, 135
"Today, we revisited part of the story. We I read on Day, two. Oh, six including! HAS ACI response to Kingston Aker ABS threats. We're reminded of how humbly he responded when troubles came as way, and since we've read this story before you probably recall that after this when he's been blessed, and has stockpiled fortunes, and he gets to live an extra fifteen years, his heart Arc's away from God, it becomes prideful doubts God's words and live somewhat airless Lii. One of the things we didn't touch on home. I read this story. A few days ago was the part where God puts a spirit and snacker. That will cause him to hear ally. There are a few noteworthy things about that burst. God is in charge of evil spirits there on a leash, and they have to do what he says and go where he commands that comforting second God himself didn't mislead snacker. Scripture tells us repeatedly that God cannot lie. Bruce Sixteen eight says he's incapable of it. It would be contrary to his character because according to John. Fourteen one of his name's is the truth. Is the truth, but God's certainly does use equal for his own purposes when Romans eight twenty eight says he works all things together for the good of those who love him. Evil is included in that list of all things, the good, the bad and the ugly the truth he speaks, and the rumors other speak. So. He allows snacker up to be misled. If you think that might be an unjust response, try to zoom out and remember how sin. Acura of has been Lee bought your way and his leaders tell the people of Judah that they shouldn't let y'all way. Trick them into trusting him. This is a merciful response based on what's inaccurate. Deserves from God. Isaiah also tells has a that they will win this war without even putting gas in their horses, and he's right before a Syria can fire an aero toward Jerusalem God's Army, an army of one shows up and wins, but it isn't really a balanced fight. The Assyrians are way outnumbered by the angel of the Lord who kills one hundred and eighty, five thousand of them and one night, plus he has the home field advantage since he owns the whole earth and whatnot, then eventually, king inaccurate is assassinated just as God promised. Next! We jumped back into the psalms. There were two verses in Psalm, Forty forty-six that stood out to me in light of what we just read. Burst this reference to Jerusalem in verse five stood out. It says God is within her. She shall not be moved. God will help her. When morning dawns, this is certainly what played out over the course of the night. When the angel of the Lord showed up and won the battle for them while they were sleeping when morning dawned, they laid eyes on God's victory. The second verse I loved is the most famous one in this chapter Burston be still and know that I am God. One of the things we've seen repeated as you've been in Isaiah lately. Is this idea of quietness and rest and trust? This stillness fits right in with that, doesn't it? In Psalm Eighty the corporate cry is for God to save them and restore them. In this song Israel knows its identity and echoes it back to the God. Who gave them that identity to begin with? I love this imagery in verses eight nine? It says you brought a vine out of Egypt that vine reference to Israel the people the ones he rescued from Egypt. Then it continues saying you drove out. The nation's and planted it. You cleared the ground for it. This is a reference to Israel the place God drove out the Canaanites and planted them there, and now they've been burned up cut down plucked up and they ask God to restore them and promised to praise him for it. Someone thirty five is where my God showed up today. I really love this psalm. I went through it and circled all the action verbs where God is the subject and here's everything. God does in this chapter. Chose Jacob in Israel. Does whatever He pleases, he makes the clouds rise. It makes lightening brings forth the wind. You struck down. The Egyptians is sent. Signs wonders you struck down many nations. He killed mighty kings, then gave their land to Israel he will vindicate his people. You will have compassion on his servants E, Doyle's in Jerusalem. God does a lot of things here, and as we look back on all of them. We see his hand to bless his people. To restore and redeem the very ones who have repeatedly gone astray from him. and. He doesn't do it begrudgingly. He does it willingly joyfully. You know we know that because I six says he does whatever He pleases. It pleases God to adopt centers into his family, and call them sons and daughters. It demonstrates his great art bore redemption. You will vindicate his people. He will have compassion on his servants. It leases him. Wow, ease where the joy

Yes so I was actually traveling with my boyfriend. Slash unofficial photographer Jonathan. We put our apartment up for after wrench for the majority of spring. He took a hiatus from works to finish his master's program. I'm a travel writer editor for my work. So we were basically had no plans and we're just kind of bopping around and and seeing where felt right so we were actually in India. We are in Delhi win. I The Danish borders were shutting in mere hours. Of course Jonathan could get back but his girlfriend's in American could not that came right before at the American borders shots and I could get back. Jonathan could not so with with literally five hours at in India to choose. We found a cheap flight from Delhi to Bangkok. And we said you know what will be together. This is. There's Kobe it can't destroy a beautiful weather and Delicious Pad Thai at we will will take easy here and just see what comes next. So that's what originally brought me back to Thailand so you all with Jonathan. It's not some long distance relationship livelihood in other episodes and fortunately he is an officer on a Danish oil-tanker so as soon as the flights to Europe started dwindling down in Thailand. He knew he knew that he had to get home or he risked losing his job so about a month ago he he left me Could've defend myself but obviously we we chat every day. This is the first time in my life where I've really had to make every decision For myself and and really every decision wasn't important. One so he is. He will be there at the end of this. I'm I'm really hoping that at some point in the near or distant future either Denmark opens again the US Open's again. Thailand opens again. But until now we we are very much the long distance relationship with him in the middle of the ocean. What are you doing? You was there. Jonathan's going back to today mark. He's going back to work.

A PBS show so public television show that's streaming across all the United States. It's funny I don't even have a TV here in my bungalow. But I'm getting all of these pictures of friends who are saying. Hey live is not your shown that I see when I turn on the television. So yes it is hand. It's been a lot of fun. You kind of show people that the idea of friendship connection when travelling which is what the message of fly brother. The show is about Still remains true even during a global worldwide pandemic so it in fact it's been it's been more meaningful than ever because it just shows us the importance of the people that we meet when we travel not just the place as a little bit of a pivot from my normal everyday because those things are are a little bit in line with you know my career and might suggest. I've met a really wonderful group of experts from all over the world theory We joke that were a bit of United Nations of of Thailand at and we of course in in a socially distant manner have this rocketed to really help the street dogs and the elephants year in in crabby because at the street dogs really rely on the scraps of the hotels and the restaurants tourist just leaving McDonald's hamburger in a garbage near the beach but with legitimately notorious. These dogs are are starving and in Near Jack. So what we do. Is We go on our on our motorbikes early in the mornings I'm we collect food. We have you know a donation site available or use our own funds And then we have about eighty five street dogs in different packs that we ride our bikes to which is a new phenomenon for me. Because I've I've never been exactly the most graceful human being so Doing that on a motorbike is is definitely stepping out of comfort zone. I never had thought really how much a pandemic would affect you know with this chain of events how it would affect the animals and in turn affects the humans because now a lot of times people like culturally are are more frightened of the street dogs but if the dogs aren't having to you know come up in bag and really show their show their strength in order to just survive if they can be fed and we feed them food. We feed them vitamins. We've gotten We've taken some to the vets just to make sure they're all right you know they're manged there for Then everyone kind of lives in harmony so that people generally have been very very open and welcoming to to the group of ex stats riding around in helping the the dogs.

That is a lot of people looking for. Hobbies Field Well Tell Tell Tina from atlas obscure. It's an online travel magazine into to accompany fill. You not caught up with them to see how things are traveling or not grown with their operations including looking after their customers during rush. It's been it's been a roller coaster. Being you know operating trips we started to affect US really Back in January because we had troops that were to Vietnam At that time and we even at that time had a a China trip scheduled for March. So it's something that we you know really started affecting us in January Edit in March really just kind of came to a head with You know really just suspending trips and canceling trips across the board because of all the restrictions that really started to come down really heavily And then when those restrictions came down I mean March. Thirteenth was a day where we had We had guests in destination. We had guests in Tunisia and the day before we had guests that were just about to return home from Galicia in Spain so it was pretty much a mad dash. You know all hands on deck to make sure that we could communicate with our guests and worked to try to get them Connected to the proper channels for re bookings so that they could get home safely and just really keep them informed as best we could as the information was changing minute by minute and that's pretty much at least on my side as I guess experience manager. That's been our main cushion. Goal is to really try to keep in front of the information as best. We can keep our travelers informed as these updates start to develop to utilize guest experienced. How tell your operations? So how did it affect you so I think one thing to keep in mind is the adults obscure us? Trips program is quite new. It's pretty young. In Twenty Sixteen. We had three departures in twenty seventeen. We had twelve and we had over one hundred twenty scheduled for twenty twenty so this was our big year. We had started really small. We're scaling quickly. So it was tough to have happen in the year that we were really kicking it up to a much bigger notch and then tap the skill back so quickly so I feel like that was an overarching feeling looking at this is we got. We went big so quickly and then we had to really retract and I think operationally that affects our relationships with the people we partner with on trips and our trips are run on such an individual basis often with one or two people in that destination. It's rarely with DMC And so we're really relying on those relationships and we had really leaned on those people and built those relationships in from one year to eight or ten and so figuring out how to manage it responsibly. And and take that in consideration And just be mindful of how we're all working through this together. It really came down to being really thoughtful about how to approach those relationships. Both for how the rest of this year unfolds. Also how we approach next year. Because that's the thing everybody as travelers we think about how all of this has affected the travel. But when you're in a business like these are the people who are relying on you and you've got to you know you've got to consider them as well especially for these people who so many of our trip leaders were in tourism. They aren't in tourism And so to go from just a couple of trips to a lot of the people I work with now running so many they made a shift and so this of course effects that shift And so they need to figure out how to shoot back or whatever it might be. What do you think guests are going to be looking full from tool provided in companies like us? Sure I mean I think that that is the the million dollar question in that. Everybody billion dollar million dollar question and there. There's there's so many conversations you know going on in the industry around that and I think that I mean I do think that there is going to be somewhat of a of a surge in particular markets and I think that there's GonNa be a retraction and others. I think that the main thing is that what we've been trying to do it. Atlas obscure in this time is maintaining the trust of our guests. I think that people really are going to want to travel with companies that they trust that they know will communicate with transparency and with clarity. And that's something that we've been working really hard to do because I think across the board that it's going to be a portent Especially when you're in a situation where like I said before. Nobody really knows exactly what's going to happen. But if you're with a company that you feel confident will be able to provide the correct information and get you in and out of whatever situation may be that that's going to be of a priority for people when they're choosing a company

"Piqued big. You know what I mean like. The big was great. But you know you know. Go clicking upward. You know it saving private Ryan castaway. I mean you look at that catalog. And he just did a beautiful day in the neighborhood. He's still he's still rocking okay. So those are two. That are very washable. Both on Netflix. I have another one that I watched this weekend because I have a seven year old son and he really really wanted to see it because he saw it on Netflix. And I watched it and I I'm recommending it only one. It was fun to kind of revisit. The movie space jam. I don't think anyone realizes how weird the plot and maybe the planet and seem weird when you were a kid but when you watch it now. The plot is completely insane aliens. There's an alien amusement park that is suffering for business so the Aliens Hatch a plan which is to come to earth and to steal like sort of the souls and talent of NBA players and to use them to create an incredible basketball team which they're always chance of of of stopping. The abduction of Michael Jordan is for Michael Jordan along with Bugs Bunny and Bill. Murray to beat them in a game of basketball. That is the plot of the or else. Michael Jordan will be slaved on a foreign planet playing basketball at an amusement park. That's the plot of the film. But the reason that I wanNA recommend this movie is basically because of how surreal. It is watching it so I remember about. It's two weeks ago now Watching watching the NBA. There's to a great games on Luca. Danni H was playing in the home game in Dallas and Zion Williamson was was scheduled to play the late game. Now the reason those games will be remembered forever is because you know as the The Dallas game was being played. You saw people across the stadium checking their phones including Mark Cuban because they were notified that Several players on the Utah Jazz had tested positive. For or at least at that point one player had tested positive for the corona virus. And in real time these people were watching. Tv were were watching them. Get information about this virus. And they're getting information at the League is going to be shut down so it cuts away to the late game. Which you know guys are about to take the court and guys are sprinting. Back into the locker room and fans are flooding out of the stadium. Real seen that I think will be remembered as sort of one of these very bizarre historical moments now in space jam. There is a scene where the aliens sneak into the Basketball Stadium and they become this missed and they fly up the nostrils of certain players on the court and those players fall ill in the middle of the game And easy well they get they get pulled off the court and everyone starts freaking out to the point where players don't want to go into the locker room because as afraid as some virus in there and the NBA Commissioner shuts down the NBA because of concerns about contagious virus. That is connect infected players. And there's this huge outright outcry Z. Nba's been canceled watching space jam scene and those couples scenes in light of what's happening or World. It's just surreal. It's just surreal. And I think I think it puts the the situation into an even more surreal context rewatching it. Also the other thing about spacium. The music is fantastic. What a great soundtrack.

This was your idea Jesse Nostalgia. You wanted to go. You wanted to go back to the treasure box. He'll toy chest. Good good coordination. So did you come up with okay. So I'm a big fan of the ringers series. I don't know if you guys listen ringer. Podcast with Bill. Simmons and Jason Renew those guys. They're all brilliant. I I love their podcasts. At work The Re watchable which is a lot of fun and they and they rewatch and kind of breakdown movies that the the contract of the show is back in the cable era. These were these. Were things that if you are flipping through the channels right. When people still channel surfed and happened to be just on randomly one afternoon on cable that you could jump into these movies at any point and really for even if you watch it for twenty minutes and be like. Oh that was great. I was so remarkable so two of mine are in what I think. Are the Mount. Rushmore of re watchable films. In that if you if you turned on the television and one of these films was on at any point you're gonNA sit down and you probably finish it out okay. The other one I take for another reason. All three are on Netflix. So you don't have to just go surfing. Cable channels defined the first the first is Shawshank redemption which Shawshank redemption. I'm pretty sure was on television for you. Know at alike on some channel at some point ninety nine percent of the time from my ages of like sixteen to Twenty eight I could turn on. Tv At almost any time and just jump into Shawshank redemption on some channel. When's the last time you guys have watched Shawshank? It has been loud. Has been a while it may. It may have been like. Yeah out of college price. I had my bag. I had my shashank phase in college. It's a great but if you're okay so if you're in college and one of the guys on the or people on the in the dorm are watching it and they're like halfway through and you pop in and you're probably finishing out the day. It is super remarkable. It's it's IT'S. I think critically was underrated movie when it came out but it has aged very well. It's a redemptive story if people don't know it's about a guy who's wrongfully sent to prison and how he deals with this time there's also you know. I think a lot of people still don't realize this a Stephen King adaptation even though there's no supernatural horror elements of the short story It's kind of a weird. Stephen King adaptation understand easing. But it's one of the best. Yeah but it's still one of the best thing Stephen King's the and I would put stand by me in that category. Two two of St Louis. Best adaptations but aren't really much warmer. Here's a much more sentimental view of the world than it gets credit for because the is often so dark but he really. I think believes that deeply moral universe? It seems like an Shawshank really kind of drives that home. And it's a it's a heartbreaking but also a really interesting movie okay the second one. This is another one. You can pop in this movie at any point you could. You could jump in at any scene and there's no way you're not watching it. That's Ferris Bueller. Stay off I mean come on like can you name a scene that you couldn't just turn it on and like I'll finish out this guy's in agreement with me Fairfield Day off pretty watchable always been a kid? It's good no. Yeah it's on Netflix. And in retrospect Pete Broderick Maverick. Better League never he never. He's been busy and he's been in some good stuff but I don't think he's ever better than anything as good as ferris irony. It's ironic we need to get into this now. But I feel like I feel like peak Broadway Broderick and the the same era of Tom Hanks. They both occupied sort of the same space which were sort of very charismatic. Witty kind of Wise Guy I every man and look I'm not shaded Matthew Broderick. I think he's done some great work later in his career. But I feel like Tom. Hanks is still Peqiin when Broderick definitely piqued big. You know what I mean like. The big was great. But you know you know..

Smith joins us. You're listening to strangers by Mountjoy Judah in Chelsea Smith our the founders and lead patrons of thome a mega church that is innovating in the virtual church space with an APP that allows users to join services from their phones participate in guided prayers and other Christians from around the world a little ahead of the curve on that one as a matter of fact we recently spoke with Judah about virtual church in the era of Corona virus. How Christians can love their neighbors. Still practicing social distancing Jesse Doctor Judah how did it go? It was awesome and I always get really encouraged talking to you know. He's I told him this towards the end of the interview. You know he's just someone who no matter what the circumstances are. He has such an optimistic and encouraging disposition. All the time and he's also the one thing I think people may not appreciate about him is how into technology in analytics. He is to try to understand. Impact interest now And if you've been on the church home APP it is like you said how they are a bit of ahead of the curve there. They not only do like online church services and sermons and things like that but also have like guided prayers and ways read meet other Christians and so I really to know his perspective on how he thinks when we come out on the other side of this corona virus crisis. How is going to impact not just culture long-term but how it's going to impact the church. You know pro in profound ways for a very long time. And here's here's what he had to say. We are currently in a revolution. I don't mean that to be dramatic or demonstrative war emotional. I mean that because I think there's a lot of things that were not being honest about in terms of are connected in terms of the vase in terms of relationship For instance if I could pick on my own kind I think preachers communicators public figures leaders. We are. We are very ironically involved in this equation. We're very ironically involved in some of the statistics and the reading me. I got a lot of pastor friends. And we're all really good at telling stories than preaching communicating and sharing concepts and ideas and principles and ancient scripture. And yet oftentimes we are not practicing things like deep meaningful authentic genuine transparent relationship oftentimes passers churches Don't have a true up into genuine friend within the church pastor preach to lead and I think these are the kinds of things we're gonNA have to rethink. I think right now is we're all in what is essentially a global corn team. It's just causing us to ask them some some really important questions and not the least of which is you know. What's the point of this life? What really matters Losing love I know several people now. That are my friends that have been diagnosed. They have the virus and now it's like getting them treatment. What will this look like? Can this affect them long term? All of these things we're learning simultaneously is at least bring us to the conclusion that the thing that matters most in the world is loving relationship. I mean in hands down without question. We have to come to that conclusion and then kind of move from that baseline. Hopefully THAT'S A. That's a base we've always had but sometimes it feels like it's one that's being repaired. Do stuff love relationship. Now We build from their love of God relationship with God love with each other relationship you know and so I think I think we're in a revolution ban. I'm not trying to be dramatic There's enough drama as there is right now because this is absolutely so intense and so- unparalleled in uncharted unheard of but I think that's Th- reality of where we are. The church is going to change. I certainly hope that it does. And we're only going to get better at You know in ensuring that people are connecting on a real level of God with each other. I thought it was a really really interesting really interesting insights and I do think there's going to be a lot more people that are going to find ways to engage with the church online following this pandemic but it was interesting too because unsurprisingly one of the top guided prayers that were in the Church home. App. This week was about letting go fear The one you know the Guy Day prayers half the guy who prayers function on. This APP are very cool in that I don't know ten twelve minutes long and you You know it's very kind of meditative. Experience Judah reads a prayer that you can kind of pray along with a little teaching it. Each one's about a different topic. And it's so it's probably not surprising. That one about letting fear was trending this week and I wanted to ask him. You know straightforward. How can we deal with fear right now because I feel like that is one of you? Know they're such uncertainty about what the next couple of weeks are GONNA like but also with the future is going to look like long term. What's going to happen to the economy? What's going to happen to people's health and so so I wanted to ask him really flatly. What's as it is a Bible teacher? What's his thoughts on fear? The reality is were fear going to touch us off. That's the that's the reality and I think this idea that somehow but if you have enough state you won't feel won't touch you I I don't think in any way shape or form that that is the teachings of Jesus. I do not believe that. Are they Is this thing that somehow they keeps you from ever feeling the effects of the we live in a fallen world. We live in a in a in a planet. By definition that's been subject to futility is going to be pain there's GonNa be pestle there's GonNa Disease There's GonNa be mystery things that are outside of our control. I'm good things are going to happen to really bad people and Really really bad things. They're going to happen to really really good people. There's GonNa be mystery on this planet and does a result. We're all going to feel fear. I think the denial of fear is certainly not GonNa set in motion are on the path to faith and strength and courage and love. I do think a lot of it comes out of your definition of faith by definition of ages divine persuasion. I think that I had faith And I thank God for that. I think that falls in the category. I think that I can respond to the face but I think God has persuaded me and I think we're really passionate at Church home first of all two years ago our vision. Hey what if we could do church at home? What if we could be even more fiscally responsible? What if we could be what if we could spend thousands and reach million rather than spending millions to reach out and like what? What what what if we can rethink what have we didn't care Who got the credit? Didn't care about counting all the numbers and who gets to say who belongs to which church passionate about people living in you know. Jesus of Loving I. Can't you know all those? What if and I think it gets back to during this time of year. What my prayer is God? Persuade me again persuade me again and I think that's a beautiful prayer just like God. You persuaded me before that you were real and your big. And they're strong and you're powerful. You persuaded me that. I on my way to immortality that. I'm going to spend the afterlife. Would you wanna be with you forever and ever without end so now persuade me again in the short? Stay here on earth with all these pains and problems and mysteries and diseases and viruses that. We don't apparently have any team for at this point. Persuade me that you're with me that you love me that you would set me that I'm righteous in your family and while I'm having distance with friends and community remind me that you are not far and you are near you are with the and I think that's that's that's my passion right now is to get the message. That God is big enough to comfort us to persuade us to meet. Us encounter US and in and I believe people can. Experience is real love and in a sense of his His reality in the room wherever you are so those are those are the things that that you know. I'm trying to share encourage people around and it is a wild Ivan and the're gonNA touch us all to an extent and guys. I don't know if you have run into this too but there seems to be a major tension right now in tyler. I know there's something that you talked about. You know in the early Church When pandemics and plagues would sweep through Rome You know the way that the Roman Empire dealt with it was. They cast sick people out into the streets and everyone else stayed home man. It was awesome Christians that would go and care for them and that sort of how they developed a reputation. If you've read it read in talked a lot about that. Sweet Tyler yes.
