Byte Tomer Capon And Karen Fukuhara

"Hi, welcome to season 2 of bite. This is Tony tellado and so parenting in Apocalypse. It's it's not the same way that we were doing. They you know, you know how it works any views from usually two to four minutes long. But sometimes they can be a little longer Tony when you when you live long enough all kinds of strange things happen. You're very right in saying that the Greek Heroes were the original superheroes in part because of the hopeful nature of jeans Vision, but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion off Karen fukuhara, who is Kimiko and to America Pawn who is Frenchy talk about their lines of communication. I think with any any form of communication when it's not Working or if it's not successful. It's a little bit frustrating right? You're in a different country. You don't really know how to speak it speak the language you have struggles, but in Kimiko was and Frenchies world, the communication failing can be fatal and it can lead to problems with even survival. It could be life or death them and what she's trying to communicate to Frenchie in the first few episodes is it is very important to her arm and not being able to say what she wants to say is really frustrating for her and it's not it doesn't come from a place of like frustrated. It's not frustrated kimiko's not frustrated purely at Frenchie because she understands that it's off. So her own thing her own problem for not being able to speak and so it's an internal frustration that happens. I mean, I've felt that in so many different parts of my own life not about communication, but it's like oh no, that's my fault. Like I can't do it. I I'm not good enough job in the frustration is like, why don't you understand but also like why can't I speak for me? It's from French east side. I think it's well, at least for the first few episodes. The question is why he's the kind of ignoring it kind of putting it down. What is it trying to run from? Why is he running from anything that can confront him with with himself in in in a deeper level? He's right. He's definitely trying to pull. Um something that his subconscious mind maybe thinks can lead a new fire. It doesn't want to be to handle with and going further with with with with with the season. We understand that every time that kimiko's characters figuring something about herself and opening a new Pandora box about ourself. Ugh amazingly friend. She gets an insight to his own trauma and his own world and his his his thoughts. It's exciting. It's exciting. It's a beautifully written line with this season for the two of them. Look for the boys season 2 on Amazon Prime. For bite, this is Tony. Tellado.

You had it the whole time. Yes he has a Nike even though he is okay moving right along with yes we will figure it out okay. Episode season one episodes seven the self preservation. The said never trust the watch. The boys learn this lesson the hard way. Meanwhile Homeowner Deacon who was passed starlight discovers that love hurts. And if you're ever incident does he. Ohio gotTA GOTTA check out the Roller coasters in Rivers. A girl asked if he can put your gills thing this aggressive. Ladies Out in Sandusky Man. Well I'm from Ohio but I'm the hold anything yeah Tonight's tonight's cast and crew. We've got a course. Daniel at Titus is art director Craig Rosenberg in a lot. And Ellie Monahan written by Eric Kripke develop five and it end. Derrick Robertson. Hit are based on the comic book by and this is this is a interesting episodes to say the least of course always say they're interesting honestly really speaking interests. This is a a really fashioning story. We are spending the whole away from the source material L.. Interesting Yeah Yeah Yeah One one of the things that we're going to get here is we get what is close to the source material as far as white butcher imagines what happened to Rebecca happened but we also as we see in the next episode. Get that completely so In this episode if I recall correctly opens up eight years ago at the Party where Rebecca is a social media handler senior digital marketing. Executive little marketing executive yesterday normal stuff using charge of hitting the whole facebook. The book getting the book faced is fully faced in the book or Young Young young homeland and this leads as such things due to Ooh an interesting tournament. A three hour tryst well. You know what's interesting about the three hour aspects of that is as we see in this one What is your name? Madeleine homeland actually had sex and Korea. Hours yeah I mean I mean so I think the implication might be that they did a whole bunch of work and then interspersed between each bouts of working where the short bursts of Whatever you call it but that and again that goes do something I suggested before? Is that years that really any evidence that this was not gentle. Oh no no especially not from when the video shows her exiting. She does not look Like panicked or like. She doesn't look like she was aggressive upon. She looks like Oh boy. Ed Better not get caught. That's the only thought she put on shoe really calmly. She doesn't seem terribly disheveled and she looked like she was just worried about getting caught. It did not look like she had went to a harrowing experience. Yeah I mean never want to assume what the one went through. But yeah there's definitely there's enough who leave us a wondering what we're oh I mean. I don't know I didn't think that was very much ambiguity there. Oh beauty as far as the the narrative Ruben given. Well okay I thought it was. It was implying pretty clearly that it was a it was a good time as well. Well you know and again I never want assume that because again. It's sort of the situation where hey I could. My laser is if you say no. So what is Consent when someone has that our give into even that's not the impression it looked like when she exited. That room was running to get away. She went outside. She leaned up against the wall. Collected or salve for the shoe back on. You know fixed her attire the lead as you know it's it's interesting end but the whole crux of the biscuit is is that we see and this is sort of the interesting aspect of this concept is we have. We have mallory and we actually get to see Mallory and I guess Mallory Korea first name not because I was like no gray smelly. Oh it's race mallory. Though though it is it is a female the Maori she is really just as manipulative and as the self serving and as apathetic to the plight of others around her I mean he did learn from her so now I mean he is a refraction of that If a exactly I mean he is iphone. I Fund Okay Anyway Sorry So the Maori comes into the rings into this world where it's like and where you almost get the idea that maybe I mean. We don't know what he was doing before this deal. Will he almost see you almost get like this kind of interesting parallels between him and Him and Huey we in the sense that they both had the person they love a confirm them. Someone manipulates that loss Undesirable revette. No one question. It appears to me immediately. Is What is Mallory motivation motivation. What was her defining moment? That turned her onto this path to go after the soups. You know it. Does the comic books give you any of that live. We haven't read the comic. I honestly don't even know if Mallory is a character in the comic interesting to put a a little dot on the I. I really don't know and just watch the show. Chris Chris Oh oh anyway So the question that we get here is billy butcher. A bad guy or person who's been hurt. Well then it's sort of asking you to ask yourself the same aim questions about home lender it exactly and like is he just like homeland. Well you know and I think well you know now I mean we get the idea when homeland visits Dr Vogel Abobo Bombs and Vogel makes the point about when you raise a child without a raise. The gloves naked meets their parents. The chicken seem to show yet so no spoilers for at all right anyway. It's interesting resting. They completely like played up the father son aspect there and you could see it coming as go. I betcha. That's the guy who raised him. Yeah I think that's the same actor we see from on the other side of the window. I'll okay right right right new blanket. You know his his push mommy rather than his lawyer. Mommy Yeah it is. It's it's IT'S A. It's a difficult process for homeland but we also see that home lender especially as the story progressive aggressive. How much he is separated from his own? How much he sees himself as so far above the mud people as he calls? You know 'cause obviously homeland blond hair blue eyes can the white supremacist. Supremacist magneto. Yeah and even more so ease even like a himself supremicist Frantisek he thinks I mean clearly is more powerful than all of the other superheroes well to be fair to be fair where I get the feeling that this whole thing of his is GonNa Backfire. Well I mean because we saw him. I 'cause here's the thing is the problem with creating Superman Dr Manhattan is of course a nut ackerman it and I'm watching. TV own land or is of course a superhero a superhuman of raising power. He got that perfect genetic lottery. That meant that. When he got the compound the everything came to him? Now when come on he's you've been given two other. People do results are not so much but once you start randomly dispersing me the chances of someone kidding something can defeat exponential and so this guy. They've created WHO's basically radioactive man man. He close up just like radioactive man did at the Cincinnati new active man the radioactive minute China legit essentially the China is attempting to essentially recreate a halt. You know they basically expose. This guy is so much radiation you've got super strength super power but then every so often he gets too hot and he reaches critical mass and explode yet but this guy can just explode like that and it it is just a guess by homeland or that the first time this guy explodes in front of him homeland is gonNA survive it. Yeah you know like Oh we'll have suffered all these other things before but also we have to remember the main can't see but it seems like they said it was a long and arduous process and it was a lot of research and whatnot involved. A lot of failed attempts involves hand. Then he's pointing. It's harder to do it on humans so I'm sure that wasn't any program that did it for with children waiting for years to what he said what he said was there were a lot of mistakes and errors which means they created a lot of monsters. Monsters that Ethan style or yeah that didn't survive. That's the right. But not that they were experiments up. Were cutting just literally Randomly dosing but we're getting ahead of ourselves before that we've got the fact that the entire crew gets out in right Mesler basically just trying fine get back in with box good graces. You know hands over the phone in heavy ones picture. He knows everybody and you know from Hugh New 'cause they already burned Frenchie but now everyone gets burned mother's love ETC and they all got to go to ground and men and meanwhile meanwhile the female is becoming human or South and you can see how much that means and again the female is this character. Who you're like? Oh man if someone is GonNa Utterly Destroy Own Lander it may well be the email and we can call Kimiko Kimiko. Yes that's super. Oh is it in the L.. Interesting Stink Female Scotch at them some female name. Your name is GonNa go and the thing about chemical is she is you know she has will bring him factor and not even more than that. She seems to have Immortals healing which means you can kill her and she gets back up and then it just becomes a question. Oh what a great what might be one of those situations like Doctor Strange Indoor Mama where assist the repetitive additive. Nature of not being able to kill him kill her rather Drains him and he's just doesn't know what else to do. She keeps coming mine breaks before his body does. Yeah and you get like you'll get Mr Blow up you know again. We don't. We don't know what homeland or can do against him get is I did. They've created these quote super bowls. And you know again just to show how poorly thought out Own Lenders plan was right. And I don't think it's far fetched to think that if they are in fact doing a dark parody of the superhero genre onerous specifically of Superman that they're not going to have a Kryptonite simply to make a funny commentary about the dynamic. Yeah and Dan and for what it's worth. I'm I'm inclined to believe that she had there's GonNa be something And we we get to that in the next episode a little bit but here I think I think then we're taken to maybe my favorite scene in this episode is homeland grilling everybody specifically starlight about her lapses of judgment and security That was amazing. The way he he's he's talking to her the moment she raised arm. Her his eyes has turned red. His face turns solemn and he says sit down missing. Heat this hands where I can see. Oh my God that was so powerful. That was my favorites insult episodes but again they say there's so much of that that is home landers Hubris Absolutely he doesn't know how will start like is he. I think he's beyond the point of even thinking that it's possible that something can be better than him. He's had so much time of every day repeating the universe repeating back to him. You're the best you're the but it's not even possible in his mind that anybody could be literally because he never had a supervisor prevent like literally before this he was punch he was punching down the whole time but he was punching the people exactly. And you know you think about it liked Not for nothing you think about. I won't use any modern references but you think about like anyone at the start of the you know toby it revolution lucious. You know the Communist revelers or the French Revolution. Everyone who got they were safe even going back to Going going back to which is actually after the French revolution but Edgar Allan Poe when the master the red dots and Prospero in his castle. Just assuming I've built this wall and no one can see beyond my wall and so the death to get me in yet here. You know here it can all come and get and I think that that is the problem for for floor homeland or is assumed he can't be beaten but you know within that. Actually this was. This was a thing I once. I once like cameras at this story about like what wasn't not fewer mankind Concepts in how yes he was able to keep World War Two raging for years later but he was still a single being the head to try in the everywhere and the only do so much to try and try and keep things going and then once an atomic bomb got dropped he realized how useless is work and to me. That's the thing with with homeland that you've created a character who is basically the villain who is basic man comment. I think there's also something to be said the fact that enough people say you wouldn't want to live forever because you get bored. The mortality is what makes things exciting to some extent. I think he feels the same way about having to constantly fight people that don't challenge him. Nothing is ever challenge for him so he's not getting the flex his muscles part of him is bored. And you know how people we'll say like self-destruction is the more interesting path to people of a certain Ben and to him it's like it's better than possibly facing death is better than you know having no challenge so he's gone out and created a bunch of titans for him to fight and so he has a reason to exist so he's not just a poster poster boy you know so he's creating a rogues gallery simply sell the world does need him more so than to please madeleine or to please the shareholders bought. Yeah exactly Slipping something on TV and sit down and lay down or go to your world. 'cause I don't need to running around throwing things away or doing whatever it is. You're doing right now. I want you to lay down and go to bed. It's way past your bed. Oh sorry my hus- that's okay. I don't know what you're doing without. They don't need to be watched. Just put him down. Anyway I'm sorry I'm trying to focus on the show and I got this little number all right anyway. Moving back to the story story at the end I think from there. I think we're taking to train calling you view. Yeah 'cause he lets him know. Hey I'm hanging out with your dear old PA and you better get down here pretty quick or run through faster than I did your girlfriend except it's good but just prior to this we get what is essentially the the crux Adrian which is that is bone density is in large. He's basically killing himself south on the ball on the on the countdown that he is not gonNA survive. He can't provide what he's doing and part of me at this point was thinking it's like you know the health risks are one thing but the risk of homeland catching you do it. His way worse so I thought that was gonna be the angle we were gonna go that he was going to get caught by homeland. No I actually think he's GonNa I'm not exactly that was my thought at that point. I thought it's like Oh boy homeland told you he'd be watching you and I bet you probably was because again that's what I get get to about homeland or just a physical beat right as admitted he can hear You know part on in Tuscaloosa the Lusa is a whole other thing involved with hearing partners. Lusa arsenault of his well. What exactly and so? If he's not in the immediate area to hear that Breitbart can know what Adrian doing if he's not trying to train he's not GonNa know what the heck agent I just meant as far as when he comes to that meeting he's GonNa be able to tell you know like just eight trains on the right it like if he sees him he's going to know. Oh you did the well. Yeah exactly and he's well aware everything up to. Oh Oh that is actually the story in a train. What was that Miss? Where Adrian admixed? He's the one who tells. Yeah when when he you know it's so it's so great it's like he's already sort of on the verge and then when he pulls out the Blue Vial it just sends his brain into overdrive and he's not himself anymore. It's you could see the Vegan clawing its hooks into his brain and all of a sudden. He's a different person and he's a junkie. He's a junkie and any mother says. I'm I've been running junkies did not so you see the interesting question like none of the soups. It seems are aware that compound gives them their power right like. I don't think it doesn't seem like maybe aware player. starlets obviously not aware. I don't think the deep is aware and I'm not sure who's aware what right I mean. That's the question it's like. I don't know of maybe aware not from these things. It's it's an open secret once you've been around awhile. Yes but nobody else has tried to keep on enhancing their powers by using. You know what I mean because nobody else is nobody else's job as the fastest man life so if you're the your job is to be the king of the ocean right now as you're constantly if you aren't aren't six other guys trying to beat the heat of the ocean you're fine you know and as we see. It's not exactly a prime dignity. It's so funny it's like like The Double Slit experiment. You know the Photon is till you try observing it and measuring it and then it breaks as funny. Yeah exactly and that is I. Think where we're where these guys find themselves and we see that we see that with We see that with with a train versus what was his name Shock waves shock waves. We're already. They're saying shockwaves. Pack because not for nothing. You know A train gets a compound fracture again because bone density was so weak which actually was probably risking breaking his own legs while he was running? Yeah that's the other thing when he was pulling that train as oh boy I can just because as as as disgusting that seem to watch was when the female cranked them with that lead pipe and had his thighbone sticking out of his leg that that was that was rough and I was like. Oh my God is discussing his horrifies that was to watch I bet you. They're going to give us another really disgusting scene within breaking his leg every time he pushed. I thought it was going to break. Well you know. I'm guessing that the compound be you know that that that extra that even as we can new bones. I guess when you're on it maybe it's like you know you feel no pain but the other thing is interesting question. It's like how long has it been since the rest of the story progresses from the time that he we you know watches the female. Fema break his leg to the next race bowl in the train. Like it doesn't seem like it's been more than a day or two and everybody else's life and his bones are fused together already. Well well. That's what his brothers said. It's like that's crazy. I know you do in the Va.. Because he is he's doing he's I just find it hard to even with the we with with the that that is possible at all. Look how fast the few. Now he'll look how fast chemical he'll yeah. I guess that's true. If like if this thing is accelerating everything everything you know. It should be accelerated healing but it may not heal right. And that's that's sort of the. That's the thing about heal the deadpool problem. You know the the dead. Deadpool has awesome healing. His body never heals back. It always heels with scars and bones. Robert Whatever you know. He's just in constant use constantly torn apart by his own ink. And you compare that to you. Know Wolverine Corrine who kind of always resets factory default the heels. But it's always. It's always a clean bill in kit scarred. He doesn't you can get. His constant regeneration doesn't lead to cancer the way that deadbolt and so. I'm getting the feeling that if you like if you're a chemical that healing factor is going to heal true but if you're doing the bean to get yourself healed it's like taking like when we'll ring takes the mutant growth hormone own rpt Look you know. And he just he burns himself out you know but he gets super powerful for that moment but it's going to break him out in. That's sort of what Adrian nothing except for sewed What happens this? This is another interesting question now. Now that you bring healing works now and chemicals case when she dies her body dies or synapses stop firing and then it's imbued with with life again electric charge or whatever. Do those memories go away and she comes back. Shouldn't it be sort of like if you're restoring factory settings that it should be a new consciousness. Well no because they're in the brain. Well Yeah I mean however memories are stored. Yeah they stick around. I mean if it comes into that basic Comes into the basic question isn't a result attacks in this spot in so it's like deadpool dead pulled dies and he dies and then he the crosses over the veil and he sees that gets his lady love permit and then immediately gets back into his body gets pulled back in debt and that is essentially what did cool experiences every time that may be what Campos. Well I mean the other way to look at it. Is it all housed in the body so whether or not the sole ever leaves goes to another place or not but does when that comes back to life they consciousness is still within it and that's springs to life again also I mean yeah and that is certainly a a fair question on the entire subject at the end of the day. I like to think that right. You know that yet. Kimiko comes back and she's he'll still the same chemical the whole front. It's like it's not like what she was was law or or maybe that's sort of the reason she's so messed up and doesn't like talk or above lies that maybe she's been built so many times that she keeps coming back and she sort of confused. I think that's very real concept anything that's here 'cause we see after she comes is back that once you start really interesting. It's like after. She confessed that on getting herself together. Interest like going. Ah Mamiit is returning to a factory default and now she's healing and and obviously she still can't still can't speak or Is Interesting just before they break in for them she actually tries the yeah yeah and she almost has more. which as you as I can make a noise I can actually speak again and you realize how much this the company has her raising this question? How many other beings in cages are there out there of it seems to me is a point of diminishing returns whether it be the amount of used or the body's biological advancement and its aversion to it? After a certain age this seems to be a point where you you shouldn't be taking it anymore. It seems instead of making you gives you less dense bones and less anymore fragile body as opposed to the. Yeah I think so actually go out on a limb on okay. So I'm GonNa say that essentially if you take V. as an adult you're GONNA get. It's some kind of supercharged power but because your body's already established that power may well Problems for even if you were juiced up from the beginning beginning whatever your body is now whatever does it. Well that's so right away compound. These seems behaved is is it generates random is our and so when you are unlocked you know untaped jeans have all always been there. But don't have the precursor to activate those Jason but but again it's sort of like if you get if you get it as a child she know maybe you develop these powers but if you get it as an adult is power sort of rush on to you because probably because you're not growing so you're not like growing as other term for healing because you're becoming a new so if you're constantly healing and the changes he'll into you you can absorb those changes but once your body's what is not no longer growing you're not changing so any damage that's done is is sustained as opposed to adapted around. Well so let me give you an example of that so they actually make the point is that a tring has to have like eight thousand three thousand calories an hour. Yeah exactly only molly. Yeah he's got to be constantly. chugging can basically rocker I was wondering what could have possibly been in that like what could possibly give them that sort of energy. Yeah sure ethanol all are like petroleum showcasing super Wow Sherman's a lot of why we like it so much. It's amazing amount of calories in the teeny tiny box. It's amazingly powerful and the idea is is that yeah he has to take US business. Body needs it to keep the metabolism up because even though his body has a bone or were grown up with this it has to deal with with what it has so so as an example if you give an adult this and he suddenly developed superspy. He doesn't doesn't have the energy stores he's going to start eating his own muscles toned. Moving is metabolism. Isn't going to be able to handle what it's going through so a lot of times yeah. It is going to result in some kind of epic accident. But that doesn't mean the person gains superpowers. It just means that those superpowers than the occurred. You now suddenly developed magnetic powers. But you don't but because you didn't grow up with it you don't know how to manage it manipulated and just starts flying flying at you or you develop you know you suddenly have play and then just float up in the upper atmosphere and you dot. It's like all these things that if you weren't able to control it because you had it since a child it could be really detrimental life for example someone who just suddenly starts to explode explode and that's the success but that's also this obsessed because that's all he needed and it was. It was a simple simple power but again a scooper destructive power power that maybe destructive enough to destroy homeland. That lender doesn't have defensive especially if we imagining that you know a guy that can generate that kind of heat within his own body and that explosion within his body may may not be susceptible to something like eat the concussive force against them is going to damage him. And then you get this question. What does homeland view if he can't defeat the sexes we've already seen own lander have limitations to his powers or at least perceived limitations power? It won't save the jet jet It's GonNa turn all kind of things after he's the one that destroyed the jet. Yes I guess. Laser is wasn't the best tactic. No it's actually it if you can focus it would just do the new a sweeping laser item. It's like what did you think was going to happen. Or if you could use laser bullets As opposed to beams. You know just blink. Really fast I just heard on her up because he doesn't need to do a whole thing. I mean is blake is is really quick and he'd be like pupil supposed to be fair. You know per man when he does it he actually has intense control over it. In fact you did that I think you. What's his name lack A Manchester black basically lombardo vices the guy at least it using second powers hours basically. It's the it's the. The final scene of the shadow with our fault. Went where you know you've been talking basically using my microscopic vision and my vision and my x Ray Vision to several parts the nerves in your brain that can that allow you to control people's minds. Thanks so now. You don't have superpower as you were to Dang dangerous and it's like well that's Kinda messed up and its way they do. It's one of the most we realize. ooh Maybe Superman you know. Maybe we gotta be careful around him. Maybe lex Luther as point. Yeah Yeah and that is. That is the crux in districts. Get but One thing I've talked about vote is the deep and man they're gonNa make you feel sorry for the deep yet. It seems kind of a little strange strange to me. Like he's a superhero. Why couldn't you just push her off? He just sort of like laid back and let her do her thing and now they're trying to make a point. You know but like I duNno I. It seemed really forced. I kind of well it again. It's this idea that you know any does butcher off eventually and you know I get the feeling that maybe this is a problem. He's had for a while. Because you know when women when he is so essentially league we'll who was even before he became a sexual predator. Maybe the person who just never gets to have an intimate intimate relationship because as soon as he tries to have relationship it gets breaking weird because he's got some gills all over inviting and that's why he he prefers the company dolphins or I mean I don't even lifestyle I think it's just like they're not messing with his with with skills. You know as I said the whole team with a Dolphin I really am PM Essentially I got the feeling just just to give you a sense of it. If there's an arc to it that basically the IPE is in a state of sexual frustration. Where people are coming on to him him in the way that he doesn't like and so the only way he can add sexual release is dealing with essentially transactional relationship and that is in? Its own way. It's kind of sad situation for the poor guy even as we don't feel sorry for him because he's a creep ness sorry and an Alaska. Yeah that so. It's it's interesting how he gets his situation where someone just wants to be with them because they're a bunker forever occur and more than that she seems to be enthralled by a how strange it is. How much of a freaky is exactly? He's like someone who goes to a location to seek out the diminutive of person who flies their their comfort now neither anything wrong with that. It's she should always be polite when you're doing that's all I'm saying it but you know going into that idea. Yeah so that's the situation and like I say I love the fact that He'll I'll and they make all ah again growing up in Michigan Industrial. It's like the one part of Ohio that people in Michigan actually like an except as as a good place in has cedar point the Amazement Park And all kinds of its own little place and you gotTa love it and like I said there is a seaworld down there and just the idea that he any don't just how density because he really wants to. Now he wants to run. Run wants to lead a group of dolphins into the you know to handle things and then you you know in in the military and it's like no. You're not getting that. You're you're pariah we're gonNA keep you alive because you are. You have value to us and we don't want you you out there. I don't I don't I don't necessarily think is that. They believe he has any value. They just think that the the damage that could be done to the brand by having him appear as one of the seven could be so. We can't let him die. You can't fire him all you you can do is put them in purgatory. That's the safest. Pr Move Well. I mean I think the his argument would be that. Let me be hero again. Let's have we tried that. But you're bad added. Look you tried to save a lobster from the grocery store and with terrible at well. He didn't say what he was doing was none of. I mean like like you should like plan for the. He's just really inept at almost everything and he he really wasn't as its griff water in Ohio. Not a lobster back into the ocean in Ohio. The best he could have done this patented Nice Ships and put Neil Input Nielsen. The main before it wanted into another trap. You know I mean I wonder sometimes how he even got on the seven in. He's lucky that in an alternative universe there was a comic book. Hero called Document and they needed a parody of him. I mean that is originally. Yes I mean obviously although one can argue you know. Three quarters of the is covered by water water based hero. It's sort of like you know it's never watched the cartoon on. Yes and there was a character on that called the sewer urge and the whole time every time you see him is it on any they make him talk like rain. Man Definitely you know. Put up through this. And he's like always the weird little guy in every scene But then there's one episode with a tick and Arthur and Batman were not pettman. Well DEFLECTOR mouths Was Alive Action One because he couldn't use created anymore. 'cause they were prepping fats. Even another Fox property could translate them because it was all kinds of crazy. Yes but they go into the stores and suddenly He's he's like completely capable because now his environment. That's the problem for the deep in the ocean if he was Akron if he had undersea kingdom kingdom was fighting if he was an independent being biting things in the ocean he would be he would talk tears heroes or even if there were other people down there with him to mingle with if there were any other human women who are able to breathe underwater even if they didn't have superpowers. I mean like he would be he would never come out to land as he really doesn't like it on land I I think he likes. He likes human company because he's a humanoid. I think he likes company. Well yeah but I I think I don't see if there was if there was a person who hedge skills I think he would be very happened. There was one other human being who had could be with him. You know regardless of who that person was I think he would say this is all I need and I think it's this immense loneliness and that's what we get from the in this episode which is like how dare you make rescued as bad for the guy who is really making his own bed every time he makes it you know but at the same time yes he is also terribly lonely lonely. It hurts me asked him before but anyway. That's the but yeah so obvious. You know his say is we do get that. Put Your Heart. Because when mother smoked holds out the fact that look you know I think I think that they were absolutely willing to give us everything we wanted. And you bail because they couldn't give the homeland who said on a better And it eats at him and he realizes okay and he makes the deal and they all get all their families get protected protected by the CIA so they can't be hurt or because athletes and burned but the same time they all don't care core and yeah I did. What do you think that happens in that situation? Because they've made the legal issue a non-issue. There's no reason to come back at the family so I think they're probably Abalti safe right well. Once well essentially wants the super bowl powered terrorist shows up right and knows that next supercenters at listen I WANNA say it's next emphasis. Let's hold out for next episode because I think that has a whole quality. That would talk about here. You're actually even. I know you know what I asked me this Right because this is where we get the Madeleine where we're homeland or explains the Madeleine that he was great at them right right. That's a yeah you know when you went to time it gets a little confusing but yeah so right now because I think at the same time you have the fact that You you know mother's milk in French you get captured. And then you've got to figure out how we can save comes next right right right as he confronts A star light and she rejects them. And we see what we're GONNA do. Oh yes so. This episodes ends of course with Huey going to meet starlight alone and while we're talking Butcha shows up and shoots her with a fifty cal just standing. Because it's got us like Dumdum vote any noses for you and that's the thing about it. It's like she can be mad about it but everyone knows she's bulletproof right so it's like yeah that was that but you know. I think it was much hilarious to me. That he had a gun like that he was shooting it just just holding it up. Oh you know like I don't know if that's awesome. That sounds so ridiculous kick back on. That must be so insane. And he's not a super that seems like such a ridiculous concept to me. Oh well you know I have I if he's not using it in fully automatic mode. Aw type rifle. There's no fully automatic mode. It's a sniper rifle. He shoots it with a giant fifty cal out of everything you can have in heaven. Fully automatic mode of Hollywood is anything but It's tough I think he was what he had. I don't know if it was a bolt action or not but don't take gone like that can actually think it had it was not a matic and He was firing one shot in time. So so essentially a and he doesn't he doesn't he doesn't shoulder. It has pretty much on a show. That's how shooting it. No no I thought. He hasn't had his side so that essentially it rocks back with his shoulder when he fires it. I don't know a gun that powerful. It just seems ridiculous it I mean. I can't speak to that specifically although at the same time now for another people. Fire guns like that you know fully shouldered shouldered and you know. I don't think so. I don't think that's a thing you know what to say this. It's a comic book. He Yeah Yeah and that was one of those complicated things that was worth bringing up because it was so ridiculous. I guess I guess to me. It didn't look as is ridiculous. You know it didn't look like it was outside the premise of what really like that. Sing Sing but yeah that's what happens there So that I think is the whole of this episode. We do ended off with own lender admitting knitting what he's done madeline taking him back to her place and having some really disappointing sex as it were and the interesting moment there also was When home lender tells her what he did she's facing away from him and she turns around with his big smile on his face? And you're wondering you know. Did she take that moment to collect yourself. was she sort of like. Oh my God this getting out of control. I don't even know if I can handle this. I was wondering what her emotion was in that moment and towards the end of the next episode you Kinda get an insight into what us probably feeling that that moment before but that face on my honest thought on it wouldn't be honest is be she totally knew about it the whole time. Of course she did right well because you're not taking count on V. Out of freaking bought headquarters without. Yeah I'm sure they track that stuff. No yes he's one of those situations where homeland Like when he did to. You know the girl at the computer desk and he's like listen. I'm home lender. You're going to do it is and I'm sure people did what he tells them to. Didn't say nothing but I mean I felt like she took a moment together. I don't maybe she didn't know I felt like she was sort of like trying to find her footing on new ground. In that moment I mean that is a possibility but I think that she turns the situation against Oh of course of course at least for that although then she says something that this is one of the things that bubble double bombs Vogel bums story is the I mean it's it's it's an adapted version of the Catholic Church in in the kind of version. It's essentially what we see happen to Rebecca except in that situation. It's actually there in their living there in their bedroom and then it happened. And then he has to the Rebecca dies and and But you're asked to kill the baby had to he makes the choice before the baby's yeah because it just killed his wife and it's clearly not his kid right arguably maybe in that section in its own right and he had sort of the precedent The moral precedent in his mind of being against also so easily justifiable thing. According to that narrative it wasn't printed remember. No compound view was actually a known quantity in the interesting part of me. Part of me thinks it was sort of like the Super Soldier Serum in America right where it was something that got created during World War Two and they had this compound. That could superpower's isn't there is something I was seeing video. There's another character in the universe. That was the original one because the Nazis did create the compound V and there is a character that is almost as powerful as whole mander hadn't realized the book. Though you know that you know I I you know. I haven't read the books. I love what we're doing here and I love the stories. We're getting and I'm looking forward to where it goes next the penultimate episode everyone. Hey do you wanna get to the hardest. Working Person In show Biz today. Yeah I'M GONNA give my heart according person show business today too No I'M GONNA give it the deepened nest Who is either? Give it to chase Crawford. I really feel chase I mean. He is pathetic yes but he lays it so well where he's clearly a person who is just I mean he's Sir He is definitely a guy who I forget who played stiffler in the American pie film. Oh yeah he's array Memorable name it was everywhere. It was one of these bond Vancouver name but he you know simpler Such a loser but was played so well by that actor and I kind of feel like the guy he's like if there was a superhero and and like just like how do they make me feel sorry for this guy at the same time I guess at the end of the day. Hey that's maybe the stories that hold. These people are the products in there. Are you know but with the deep I think this also responsibility. It's ability to be better. That's the only time that I can find pity for you is if you're taking this constant messing up that you're doing that you're learning from it and you're getting better if you're not making an actual effort to be better. How dare I have any sympathy for you? Who's ever told me that we better you know? We never had an uncle Ben and for what it's worth that is the that is the crux of the homeland or story is that he was raised in a bop he was raise without love. The why why should he ever have developed a humid right right because he has no human enactment and you know he is he is yeah maybe it is a semi self destructive Self aggrandizing idea like I need a super villain the fight. I am so sick of random. You know random criminals. I have to punch now I want to you know I'm tired of having to kill some from guys you know. Just because I can't shoot him in punch back and it seems like he is simply a product of our society and the little pockets where the bad feelings exist in all of us collect and coalesce and expressed rest themselves as this but he's really reflection of everything that's wrong with society. He's just every bad thought taken to the degree. Yeah and I think maybe on some level that all these aircraft complicit responsible as much as they are well. I don't know if I'd go that. Wow okay maybe not as but I mean we we shoulder some of it. We certainly haven't made the world any easier but at the same time you know I think that you know holding human beings with power who accountability is actually kind of in the vogue right now and really recognizing the great words Stanley once wrote that those with the most power have the greatest responsibility is navy where society is moving to evolve love and in this story of the boys what we see people who never got that message because even if they got the message it was then. Dan stomped out because someone else told them. You know whatever you want you got it. Basically the child actor Andro which is again Dan wide so great to have Haley. Joel Asthma as as Mesmeh. The idea of you know the guy who was cold at one point anything he wants he can have and then suddenly to have not not come back and again much like the D.. Finds himself in a spot where he has the power but that that is not visually. It's a really great power. In fact an amazing power that can be used to help billions of people but instead ed because it's not visually satisfying because it doesn't make for a good a good Comic Book Essentially Shuffled off to the side. Yeah I mean right now he could be helping us. You know maybe affect global warming by somehow using his powers to recap the ice. Oh who the yeah go that far nothing it. Yeah I mean. I don't know maybe he seems to want to protect the ocean for the also. You know it's like it's it's like this thing he's not from the ocean. Has this amazing set of power in the ocean. But it's not like that's his home. It's like oh well I can live here but you know it's like if you suddenly realized you could be alien language inch and then he went to the early language that you could interact with all the aliens there but you yourself are never going to be you know and no matter what you know. The the the dolphins there see you as an interest in track and the humans back on on your own to see you as a free. Don't remember where you go. You have no home because you are the world night tonight. Why aren't as Manitoba's is? How dare you make me feel for this guy? I did my hardest working actor in show business goes to Anthony Star playing homeland. That scene where he's grilling the seven or the five now and his confrontation with it's not only starlight but his confrontation with Maven that scene. And then couple that with senior has with his quote unquote. Dr Father. was so powerful likely little subtle Emotions that dance on his face when his father tells him. You're the biggest failure I've ever had you know and like a contrast it against the moment moment before where he's at full chest pumping pride saying I'm the Best Superhero. There wasn't the biggest failure have and lots that moment landed actually hurt him. was pretty amazing and sort of like gives a little vignette into what his actual weakness is is his emotions. I mean without a doubt it support. Yeah I mean he was great. I mean you know it's sports. It's the two ends of the spectrum. It's the person who is who is in in the sense. Both men are horrible. Horrible because they've lived their whole lives in separation ration- from the world around them and it seems like one doesn't know what to take pride in and one has too much pride to go around exactly anyway. That is the ultimate episode. Take a drink of the boys Mas snaggy wrapping up the boys and a little bit. Then we're going to be looking at a new project Duke. Who so I have my copy record next show? MAZNU have a top three. I mean you suggested one that spoke to me so much that I'm just GonNa make that all all my three picks it's eight now because you suggested Black Mirror and all that as like. Oh my God yes I would love to do that. That's such a great series and I it's so ripe for philosophical debate about ideas of identity and morality and That I'm super super excited to get into these these conversations so dark near in one of my blackout. Black Mirror are lacking here. No Dark Mirror. That's no black mayor is definitely one of the shows that I would like us to do as as a pitch I think it has a lot of advantages manages not listed. which is it? has this backlog catalog with no overarching story. We can literally pick and choose random episodes. So do while we're waiting for as an example the boys comeback or you find the next year we wanted so it's a great to do the impaired found that we're doing another thing when we can't points than we should come up with something else as well. Yes so the other option. This is GONNA be honest. What's pushing pushing for land? Lilla but do the mental Laurean also wants to do the mandatory Mandalay. Because I've been meaning to watch and I just recently and I'm not a big star tended I just recently watched rogue one because I got Disney plus and man. Oh Man did I love that movie. It was so good it was so so tell you think that star wars is doing its best up in its expanded universe. Outside of the entire Skywalker you know came up. Thrown Story I think might morph into my A.. C. Seasons you might never saw the people more Michael Good People in Oak. Yeah I mean it certainly it does does set up everything after empire strikes back love before Expect Everything but before the force awakens so actually is kind of the rogue one of the the the final set of three sequels. That will still waiting mister. We're GONNA see baby yoga in that in that new movie coming up on anyone we can see then the third out and this is my my suggestion. It's only six episodes and it is such a good show. It's it's a real shame that it's actually in Kaplan absolutely because it is a it is set to a buck that's done is a good owner Hop I don't know if you've seen it or heard of it. But man is amazed good omens is a film. It's a series. David plays a demon of Israel. The name of the actor who plays the Angel House of getting uh-huh. Yeah that seemed really cheesy and cornball is it good oh it is it is amazing is have you ever read anything by Terry Frechette nei-neither Have you ever read anything by Adam's okay after truckers get into galaxy. Oh I did that. Yes a Saddle Gardner summer old. Oh Care Seven. We'll see what they haven't a new movie But we probably I can guarantee the reinforce goes act pretty much given But so yeah. So it's it's a really interesting thing is you like really. Here's the thing. If you like a flippant comedy about religion and God and a universe in which there is a guy in there is a devil and it's bogged down by bureau bureaucratic nonsense. This might be the this might be the series for you it. It really speaks to me because to me. The idea of cosmic bureaucracy is to me just the most resilient idea in the AMI verse. Oh I see the callback hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. Yeah all these things these rebels but then you know. There's there's form and the middleman and people who fall between the cracks in where they live between the cracks and you know when things running I love good Omens I was GonNa say Good Omens is Mike I picked mandatory is maybe second but then I had to put like like as like right in the middle. So it's like it's like one one and a half to know is black mayor because I love black near in the sense that I haven't watched them back as curious episode. Really Oh my God. Are you in for a treat. My God I hear so many good. Thanks for watching it and like I said we can pick random episode. I'll follow any water. Oh we're GONNA do a season one episode three and we're GONNA do season four episode six. Oh yeah and I can come up with like a best of less and like an order in which they should be washed lost to sort of because some of them like technology that's introduced informs other episodes. Yes Oh oh my God yeah I that I'm super excited about the only that I can think of. It's like a a show that was on Stars last year it was on for two seasons got cancelled but in my opinion it was the most interesting most exciting exciting new show on TV with some of the best writing. I've ever seen unbelievable show policy or was it the I was just a a show that you know sort of had a continuing narrative but it was out in the nineteen forties. Germany had discovered bird a portal into another or rather they did an experiment that bifurcated our world into two so there was another universe another dimension that was birthed because of this weird experiment and they have a tunnel where people travel back and forth and that was sort of like the Cei- organization setup to trade information back and forth through other worlds and at one point there was a big pandemic that happened in one of the world's and it didn't happen the other because things were as time progressed. I started being very different and a bug from one world got the other. A lot of people were wiped out that caused mass panic and they closed the doors between the worldliness secret. Travel down but the whole show is about the espionage aspects from one world into the other and you think about like this versions of you on the other aside so think about the possibilities of different version of you coming into your world and kidnapping replacing people so all these sorts of things. It's an old school spy thriller because The digital age doesn't come into play because the connection between the world is very analog So it's a very very fascinating show. It's unbelievably well written and it stars Schillinger from ause. What's the actor's name who also plays J Jonah Jameson? It's five K.. Simmons and he is unbelievable as these two completely opposing versions of this one character. It's amazing show. I called another life. No it was called counterpart Oh counterpart. That's one of the best new TV shows ever SADDIK ask but I'd be reviewing that. How many people have even heard of that show but more I people should so our loyal listeners? These are your choices. The vote that you have counterpart during Jacobson's you have the mandatory from Disney. You have used You have a good omen from the good folks at Amazon and every project and now that they've given no good omens it's spy A guy who did this man. Why am I blanking on his name? Adding isn't He's a guy that Neil gaiman. Aw you'll gain. Interior practice wrote that together and in Unical L. or Black Mirror. Sifi this topic hoping dark backwards. That is all the rage on the net flex and I think I think that is one. Ah I think we should just agree to do like inbetween every now and then. Let's do one of those things. We needed a solid show. Is I think it's too good not to do. And we should do something else on the regular as well and I like your idea from jumping episode episodes in have to do that. Tell you what tell you what. Everyone's voting yeah one of you and I next week. I want you to perfect episodes from the dark mirror or or do we will review those two episodes chewy. Everyone is deciding. What would you in the meantime yes? That's and that's but in the meantime I want all of you out there to vote. If you want you go shattered us do the men. Lauren Orrin Utah.

Kimiko Hahn vs. Portals

"She's the vegan garlic Ailey to my vacation franchise, and they're the author of the Nobel prize winning novel, the color, purple purple TAs Smith. You're listening to versus the podcasts were police confront the ideas that moved them presented by the poetry foundation. And post loudness are you doing for any? I'm doing pretty good. I feel like I killed my husband in March and a life insurance. Check just clear. In the clear the arrested. My sister four. To take taken her fur's. I'm living new life.

Yes. The one that kills husband is always out deposit. Deep. Have do you feel like you have aunties in the world? Like who's like you're like top like poetic auntie? Oh, wow. Okay. Okay. So poetry auntie is then let's define it. I it was like a different than like a poetry, mom, truly. Right. You know, lately, I've been feeling like, I guess like Tracy k Smith is like my like rich poetry auntie. I know she let nice thing too. That's true. I think she's like always somebody that I looked up fires the work in his last year. She's just like done a couple of things like she mentioned my book, and like oh magazine and just like put me an algae that she put together and just like a couple of things like it's felt like she's been like, my rich Ozzie who doesn't show up to thanksgiving. But is like like a check in the mail, sometimes it'd be like, I see your kids, your mom told me, they'd have grades. And so. I've actually gotten the chance to really meet her. I met her once before but I got so like talked to her for sin amount of time. Like, this is my auntie having you said before like your poetry mom would be Patricia Smith says Smith family. My my dream is to have a a Smith reunion concert dismissed three and in concert, and it's just the three of us that that's a dream that could be very possibly probably coming in two thousand twenty. How about you though? You gotta poetry out here these streets. Well, I mean, speaking of like literal less name sharing, you know. Don me Troy, I do feel like oh, look sometime all only. Only like it'd be up to holmium two translation project for like this Korean American peach student, but I don't know if she's really like opponent auntie or if she's more like a really cool older cousin. That's like looking out for me, and like taking me shopping for skincare like, my literal, cool older cousin. It was great. But even as Matata l-. I also feel like it's like someone who's like who's like out here kind of looking out for me. And like like putting me on in certain ways. And just like a beacon of like, that's cool. I could be. Yeah. Could be that cool. That is you always wanna be your aunty. Right. They never wanted mitt that you want to be your mom, but you may want to be your aunt, you do wanna be your aunt. Amy, and Dan me, and Tracy and Patricia and all of our. Yeah. And our guest today is a self proclaimed poetry onto one of our one of our former guys in the union. Yeah. Can Meco Han is the author of nine books of poems, including brain fever, toxic. Flora both collections prompted by science the narrow road to the interior, which is a beast of a collection. The unbearable heart was received the American book award year shot which was awarded the Theodore watt key memorial poetry prize in the association of Asian American studies literature award as part of her service to the Kuni community.

Let's get into his interview with. Meco hough. Karen? And then she'll eat. Yeah. That is really. If not. Statistic. That's. It could be sadistic. It's a Roddick I think it's like Harada for me. As I mean, not that it turns me off like view it as I don't. But I I think it's just like it's such an intimate type of video that they usually make like always like very clear. Yeah. The whispering. And like those very close to the camera. I feel like it's always a woman. I've never seen a man doing it. I don't know something about it. Feels like I think because I understand that they're trying to make tingling sensations happening somebody. I'm like, oh, this is sexual is person who suffers or who experiences that it's not necessarily Roddick for them. Yeah. What it is pleasurable? I think it is pleasure. Oh, okay. Pleasurable then it's not sadistic. Gotcha. Yeah. They more fetish. Oh, I wonder if some people do experience pain from it though and still kind of like the experience of it which makes it Roddick, but sadistic Roddick interesting. Anyway, like here we are now. Okay. All right. It's all the ways I want to be punished could make that three can make that happen. Hey, I've been teaching for twenty years. Oh, we're gonna have a good time to lose my job. Well, we're so happy to have you here. Thank you so much for being here. And you're reading last night you read with. Yes at the poetry foundation. Who was a guest on our show like a few episodes baton have y'all met before she was a student and my grad class at NYU where I occasionally moonlight shall we say, and I was the one who took all the pages of her many poems of her potential faces. And we laid it out. I can't remember whether it was on the floor on a desk. But we laid it all out, and we we looked at it mild, which is really fun. It's so great. Yeah. It must have been nice to get to do that reading together. Oh, I love during that. I love doing that. What's that experience? Like seeing the students that you get to work with like now, you know, being full-fledged writers in the world. Is there a type of like, I don't know like parental pride that you feel. Yeah. I mean, I mean with someone like, Emily and also Monica Sook, I had both of them at the same. Times. Yeah. I felt like I was also the whole tree anti. So I went to parental pride but anti pride. We respect aunties. A lot of talk about sort of particular necessity aunties. Absolutely. There are some people who I consider my product aunties who don't know. I think necessarily the team. But just like I look from far win. That's just like, that's that's my that's your rich poetic onto always come to thanksgiving shows. It's like every other Christmas. Very much. We're there were there poets when you were an emerging poet that like that rolled for you onto no. I didn't go through the program. I went to university Iowa as an undergraduate. So I had Louis Glick and Charles, right and Marvin bell. So I had you know, some real Heavy's, but undergrads didn't get the kind of mentoring. And I was too timid to seek that by the time. I might have applied for an MFA program. I just felt that I had. I've done what I needed to do. And I was out of Iowa and back in New York City, and I'll tell you at that point. I was hanging out with Sekou soon. Diatta and say cool. Yeah. And I was hanging out with, you know, all these quote, unquote street poets, and they were looking like really you need to look at that page in order to. Perform or read you're really so I was coming from one tradition and moving to a whole nother tradition. I didn't have aunties I had older cousins. Sure. And yeah, they looked out for me. But not aunties uncles. Yeah. I know that for especially Asian American women poets of my generation we especially try to like find like the Asian American women models, Mike, they're more sort of like these days. But I think you occupy a place in the hearts of Asian American women poets of my generation, you're a rare and precious figure I think for for a lot of us. Thank you for saying that, and I I really really mean that you know, I'll say to some people at a poetry reading. I'm little mixed hubba, Halley Japanese American girl who was brought up in the suburbs. Born in nineteen fifty five and I was raised at a time and coming from my background where to be a good girl meant to not be angry, not speak up pretty much. Just be quiet. An and I came from a family of artists, but still was pretty much behave yourself. So I was apparel. So for me, speaking up was and still is a radical act, and I had to find permission where I could an ultimately you have to give yourself permission. But if I can do that, especially for Asian American women, that's such a pleasure. That's really really important to me if I can say, something and. It allows someone then to give themselves permission to write stuff that they didn't even know. They wanted to want it to right where did those first forbiddens to of speak up and act out a come from was it from writing and poetry or was it from other spaces? I know you talked a lot about the Marxist circles misuse, let you move it in all the Marxist circles. Actually, we're the opposite. Because if you're in a political meeting, you have an obligation to have an opinion, and to state your opinion. And if you don't then why not you are there for a reason. And what do you think Kimiko, and and what are you going to do about it? You know? So that that was really a different experience. It wasn't, you know, sit down and be quiet. It was sit down. And what do you think where are you going to go to dear agitprop? People think agitprop is just, you know, stirring up trouble, but agitprop in its essence really is agitated just means to become involved where you are in a grass roots organization. It could be a union could be in a classroom. It could be an club. It's like get involved wherever you are. And then the propaganda is just raising people's consciousness to class consciousness, and that is a process, and that is not Bogarde ING or bludgeoning that's having conversations. So I had to learn how to speak up how to think clearly how to try and figure out where people were coming from which means that I had to figure out where I was coming from his own. Were you already writing poetry at that time as well? Or I've been writing poetry since. I was in third grade. So well, yeah. But from high school on I was that's what I wanted to do over your poetry start to change at that moment. Ben. Well, I I mean, I really did grow up in the suburbs. I was very isolated. But I had Japanese language classes in New York City at the Buddhist temple one hundred fifty street and riverside drive. And because of the time it was some of my classmates in that language class were also becoming involved in civil rights and those in the context of this language class. But it was in the context. Yeah. For example, also took dance class and also in that dance class was Yoriko Shamas daughter. So we're just starting to think and do things well pajamas for doing things forever. And I wasn't necessarily doing anything. I was just I wasn't doing anything. I was digging a dance class. But becoming influenced by an and having conversations that I wasn't having in the suburbs. Certainly I wasn't writing about those experiences. But in a once you start writing honestly authentically, then you have to start questioning and going deeper and deeper and allowing things to be complex. So that's where some of the Marxism comes in. If you start talking about the woman's body than you need to start talking about the history of you know, why are we where we are today? You know with sex trafficking on the one hand and a woman thirty six years after she was assaulted speaking before the American public senators, I mean, anyway, so kind of changes how you're approaching the objects. Right. It's no longer like stagnate history. It has future has it hasn't. Yeah. That's what I mean by allowing things to become lex. I love that idea of allowing things to be complex as like the political will work does that do in the context of your palm. And in the context of poetry as agitprop ads like agitation and propaganda. Sounds like a dirty word when it's put next to arm, but you know, in the least dirty the. The. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I I should say that I don't. Few my poetry as agitprop, but I've view myself as a citizen because my poetry isn't outwardly political. And some people would say, it's not political at all. And that's you know, it is what it is. It's whatever views they have. But for example, if I'm reading at a political rally, the has to do with say immigration and housing, and I read a love poem that love poem in that context is very different because it might be about parents being separated and having their child taken away. And so there's very little room in their life for affection for making love. So it's how I read my poems. It's how I decide what to read in the context. So that's taking the poem as an object and utilizing it. Within the context of say, agitprop or social Justice or whatever phrase you want to use. It seems to be in line with the idea that the poems that you write our existing in the context of the world. And and I guess I wonder like do you think of I don't know what the fuck trying to say. This works out. Guess on the one hand, it seems like one wants to assume that every reader will enter the poem understanding that this poem is a love poem in the context of the world being what it is and denying certain people access to love. And so those are like the stakes in which the poem is is happening. I guess and there's also the danger that somebody will walk into that poem. Maybe ignoring those steaks and seed in a vacuum and see it without that importance. And I guess I wonder how do you reconcile that? Like, do you see that as a as a risk, or how do you deal with that will I guess that's part of the complexity, although that's after the poem is already written your, I think when I read a love poem. I don't think of it as necessarily when it was written or what was happening socially. I I think I read it in isolation of what is happening in my life because I'm. Experiencing it, and then all the other dimensions facets happen. Right. If it's a good poem. Hopefully, every time you read it something else will happen. That's what I'm here. I think I'm here. Maybe more something about the choice of what poems like we reach towards especially in that act of a reading right like that same love poem right is different at the rally as it is in regular reading like what it means to read a love poem any day. We have to decide what am I going to offer to this audience today, regardless of the context, what changes maybe for me? I think about myself here is the choice to continue to do that love poem or to do any poem on that day. And I even that arrangement of homes and think about like what statement am I giving across these five homes, and I'm going to do. And what does it mean for me to be doing it in this city in this bar or this university, or whatever it is? That context is like how you choose to show up as opposed and maybe it's all felt like that complex a fi ING or like allowing to be. That's the word is that a word. I like it. I like it. I like that fi. Not. Are like just constantly making up word area. It's true. I've been hanging out with some academics. But allowing the palm to be complex. Also, I think sort of constructing poems with some openings in them that are both mysterious to me a lot of times when I'm reading them in a way that I can bring something into the poem and like see how like what I'm bringing to the poem fits into the spaces. They're you know, what I mean. I think the way I love to write and love to read is when a word or a phrase or a whole piece is like a portal. So if I start reading Yates's leader and the swan, which is about Zeus raping leader all the sudden, I'm. Seeing our recent Senate hearings. So it becomes this portal and for me for my own writing. Sometimes it just starts off with one word. I like to ask my students. I put on the blackboard. What do you find in common? With these words, pine rose leaves hedges into the obvious answer is are all from nature, but their own nouns and verbs. And so when you can make language work that hard, then it becomes a portal to go somewhere else if I can do that then that creates spaces not just for made a move through. But hopefully for the reader to move through so Feis say pine, and it's a pine tree. But there's also something about longing. Then I've done my work if that is happening simultaneously, and you smell it. I think that's where the openness or mystery can come in. So I've been thinking a lot about portals, and I've been talking in the past few years a lot about portals in about words being a single portal. So for example, when I give myself writing prompts, especially with the science times, or what have you that's for me? That's what happens I start out with, you know, a fruit fly, and I ended up writing about feeding my daughter spaghetti or something like that. She's in her high chair, which was many years ago. Can I ask what is it about that quality of of words working hard in that way that creates a portal it has to do with the word itself association? So if I am committing a word association. If I'm engendering that right? Then that provokes it massages it allows it that part of the brain to still a lot of a lot more word association. And that's where all the fun is. That's how we protect ourselves walking down the street at night. And you know, someone's behind you, that's intuition. That's when you wake up in the middle of the night because you know, it's about to rain, and you have to close the window. You know, where you're flirting and you're. That really happening. Right. That's all intuitive. And we don't because intuition was so often decidedly female and therefore not important. It wasn't part of knowledge and thinking, we don't value that I think I got my brains and discipline from my dad, but for my mother, I got my intuition, and she did artwork. She was an artist of visual artists as well. And she was much more intuitive than my father, and I really valued that so intuition is something that we all use us artists. And I'll tell my students in writing workshops, I'll say, you know, we're going to do something here that you might not do another classes, I'm gonna tell you to leave your brain outside the door. Sometimes. Right. We're going to use our intuition. And that's the same thing that keeps you safe walking down the street to New York, and we're going to use that part of the brain to experience poems. That's an important quote unquote, muscle to use intuition. And I think you're talking about sugaring the readers intuition to like what you're saying about Yates. Right. We'll always wanna call Yeats now. Well, you know like. Intensive purposes that I know he's dead. But when you can read that poem about Zeus right that it triggers for you a portal into your current moment. Right. Gates had no idea about I think it's what we mean when we mean like trusting the reader, which was thing that we have sort of set up these little triggers to get there themselves and get wherever they're going to go because we're not all going to slip through that same portal apps. We're all going to go through somewhere else. But let me set up something enough that it does have an effect and all I can trust that is that it will city somewhere where you go is up to you. Yeah. Earlier you said, you know, if people don't see my poems as political as overtly political. That's okay. And and it it sounds like, you know, your some one who is open to lots of different interpretations of your poems. Are there things that you want people to not miss if there's some some quality of the poems that you don't want to sacrifice to the infinite number of interpretations? Like, what would that be? I. I I'd say that it's not okay. That people would find my work devoid of any kind of social consciousness. I mean, any given poem would not be obvious. And maybe maybe it isn't there? But what I would love and probably is the least thing likely to happen. When people read my work is to see that. My work is really informed by Japanese Poetics. And of course, that means that you have to know something about it. So why would I punish myself and hope that that would? That that might be, you know, an experience, but. Well, I hope people would know that for me when I write the poems that became the collection, brain fever, really isn't formed by my study of Japanese Poetics, for example in a haiku. You have a lot of word play because you have to use that incredibly tight economy in exploded open, the double meanings literary allusion all of that. That's what I would like I'll be disappointed. But that's what I like to say to people. I think I've I've read a thing you wrote about like associations from concept to concept in Japanese Poetics like working somewhat differently from western literature. Japanese is cold vocabulary poor because they don't have as many words, literally as we have in the English language. Interesting crabby, Larry poor rich phrase. And part of what that means is also that there may be one sound that has several meetings. So the sound S H I, she is the word for poetry death. And the number four, well, so that's crazy. That's and there are a lot of words like that. So again to write a Haikou, there's all sorts of ways of exploding things open. And that's what I like to expect from my work to have that kind of explosion hoof. Kind of benefit of something to be quote unquote, vocabulary poor then that it offers those meetings, right because they in English. It's like damn it. I wish this word didn't just mean. One thing. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. Vocabulary poor but rich in multiple meanings. You know, you asked me about closure yet. And that's also another thing that I'm rabid about. I was in graduate school kind of briefly, and I got out as quickly as possible because I am vocabulary. Pour myself personally, I am vocabulary. But in that time, I read a book poetic closure a study of how poems and I think is some title by Barbara hunt. Staint Smith, I guess, I I'd say the gist of it is repetition creates expectation, and you expect it to keep going like heart you expect to keep going until it doesn't. But there can be signals away to signal closure. Now could be Matic it could be sonic could be all of that. So creatures of pattern. Yes. Exactly. Pattern repetition and the deviation from that. I like to look at closure that way and to see a poem not end, but close I don't want it to just be sealed off with no resonance. The last couple books. You've ridden have been very dependent upon science and like going to these articles right size today. The New York Times and binding these things sort of making these prompts out of them. I'm curious because it seems to go so far against sort of this notion of like, right, which you know, that so many of us get as a directive at some point our career. What does it feel like to sort of be playing so much and writing what you don't know writing this curiosity being an unex- part? How is it differently? Tickling your brain. I think I have to write what I know. But I don't start out with what I know. I start out with again. It's the portal to right to what I want to know right to what is revealed. So that I can know maybe thinking out loud. So I might change my mind after I close the door here. But I think that's just a different take on. Right. What you know? Because for example, not that. I haven't done this myself. But there are a lot of books that are one project. One theme. One subject matter, especially I think that has to do with marketing, I think that has to do with MFA programs and so forth, and blah, blah, blah. If those projects collection succeed, it has to ultimately hit a nerve, you really have to end up asking yourself. Why do I have at stake and writing about this and bringing yourself to that directly or indirectly, otherwise, you know, what why should anybody care? You might as well read a really good essay on it. I was talking with student Minty someone and they're working on a collection about immaterial. And I think I kind of messed them up when I said why, you know, y you know, like, especially the people can go read, you know, Marilyn Nelson has the whole wreath firm until it's great. We're all these are the collections in its this being willing to admit and also show up in your own obsessions. Yes. Matt leading it sort of be divorced from yourself. But saying like, this is why I am obsessed with this thing, right? This is what keeps me coming back in that mean being very important whether explicitly talk through as an eye or not, you know, but I think we have to allow ourselves to be seen salivating. These things. Yeah. That's where I come. What do you have at stake mistake salivate about totally? Say where dissociation? Also, like, so brain fever is your is your ninth collection of poems is yes, yes. And you have a new collection. Also on the way is that true. I'm finishing up a what I hope to be my next collection. So working title is foreign bodies. One of the long poems that I was working on that. I think we'll still be in the book. I hope so has to do with the doctor who invented an endoscopy for taking things out of children's SAFA guests that they had swallowed and that is called a foreign body. So if a child swallows a safety pin foreign body than have a foreign body, and you can see them on x-rays and so forth. Amazing. I am the safety pin. That's right. Yes. It is great news. Or the charm from the race. So I realized though that if that's gonna be the title of my book, and it does suggest the foreign body. I should write a poem called foreign body. That's also about my own body in my mother's body. So I I wrote that poem the book will end up being seemingly more autobiographical. So it has a lot about my father being a hoarder what that means to exhume things from your father's home and being stuck with all this. Detritus? So hope that's my next collection. Put ten. Incredible. Thank you, the double digits, you double digits. Are there things that you are learning writing book ten that you wish you had known in book three year? I took a much longer time to put this book together than I have. And I wish I had. Not been quite so reckless. I don't know if the word is impatient or eager or to move a book forward. But you know, recklessness might be my middle name. A good and bad way. So, you know, I think it's it's it's what's allowed me to be very free and open with my subject matter, and my seems, but I've held these poems back longer, and I've worked on the more, and I've shown them to more people. So that's what I've learned which book of the of the ten. God I. Do you feel like stretch, you the most? Well, the book the unbearable heart came about after my mother died very suddenly in a car accident. These kids were in a car chase. And a group of white boys were trying to beat up a car of. I think they were Pakistani kids, and they ended up plowing into my parents car. And so everything that I had been working on completely stopped, and I began writing poems about loss that that very real loss. Not just a figurative loss, and I have a long poem in there. That's very important to me. It's called the hemisphere, and it's actually quote unquote about Flaubert's sex touring in Egypt. That's one of the threads speaking of making things complex. I really had to ask myself, especially after my mother died. Who are you to write about this who is Flaubert to write about it? And who are you to write about him? So that in particular really stretched me what conclusions. Did you come to ask that question who who are you to write about it actually spirals back to an earlier part of our chat here, and that is to allow things to be complex because I originally wanted to write in the voice of the courtesan that he kept visiting in Egypt, and I had to ask myself who are you tenure track? Professor, and who are you to write in the voice of a sex worker? Who do you think you are? So I had her asked me that. And then I had snippets of Flaubert describing her genitals. And his writing is so incredible that I had to try. And up the ante and right as gorgeous Lee as his vulgar letters were mum beautifully written. So there are all sorts of ways that I stretched and also it's about the foreign body right in in many ways in about my mother's body. And losing my mother ended. I ever have my mother so and I have daughters. So there were whole lot of girls in women's bodies happening and also the male gaze in there. But I think and Claudia Rankine has said this to sometimes just changing the point of view helps make things complex is it different to write about your parents. These many years later in these many years after their passing after this book that you're talking about specifically. Well, my mother died over twenty five years ago. My father. Actually, just died last year and my sister, and I were left with very difficult house, and quote, unquote, a state when you say the word is state, you think oh it was a mansion. In fact, it was really awful situation that we're just now still getting settled and he was an artist. So there was a lot of valuable things in there. A lot of things that might be valuable, but are only valuable to people who really value esoteric things like tea ceremony spoons, literally of dozens of those. So so what was your question? How do I write about my parents, which just such a like a huge question? But I guess I I was wondering if if the way that you write about your mother in poems in recent years, like how that relationship has changed part of that has to do with my just being older. I'm in my sixties. I have a granddaughter now as of last year. And in this book that I'm hoping we'll be my next book. I really right about more directly about death. I don't believe in heaven. I don't believe in an afterlife. I do believe that someday. I will be wherever my mother is even if she's nothing and that drives my husband crazy like well. How can you be somewhere? If you're nothing. I mean nothing together, and that's exactly my answer. So I'm hoping that's part of this book is I will be dust as my mother is dust. I will be ashes as my mother's ashes. I will be there with her. And also writing how my father lost her ashes. But then we found them exactly where we thought they were. There's all sorts of stuff. Yeah. Yes, we found them. So, yeah, I'm still writing about them still writing about missing my mother and still arguing with my father, and but they take different iterations, obviously. And if they don't then shame on me, I have to work harder than so. I mean, I think I partly I'm asking that question selfishly to get advice because I recently realized this year would be year nine after somebody who was very important to me passed away and have been trying to think about like, how does that change the way I write about loss like nine years later as opposed to like nine months later, you know, and so it was mostly just to be like chemical help. What do I do? What do I do? You know, what came to mind as you were speaking. And I was listening to you. Was that poem by Emily Dickinson? Because it's I've held a funeral in my brain where she goes through the different stages of grave, and I thought well, where am I in that? I'm at the dash at the very end of the poem who I'm at the dash what does that mean? That means I've gone through all these stages of grief over twenty five years is my mother, but I'm still I'm still in some stage of grief, and if I felt I've gone through all of them that I must be at that. Dash. So if you kind of never leave the dash, right? Exactly, yeah. Yeah. You're still somewhere in it. And maybe Emily Dickenson true to written more. I don't know. But she was only going to write what three or four stanzas when in very small paper. Yes. Yeah. Riding on the back of an envelope. F- darned, or if she had like someone had just given her a role of Japan have done kept going. That's right. A scroll of gosh that would have been magnificent. Can we go? Do you have a poem that you would like to read for our listeners and for us today? I would love to read this poem eight dusting, which I've hardly read anywhere. So be a real pleasure. Yeah. Yeah. A dusting. However mother has reappeared say as dust motes on a feather duster. Scientists say the galaxy was thus created this daybreak she seeds, a Cumulus cloud. Wherever mother is bound she's joined ashes ashes or turt- underfoot or bits off tower north and tower, south repurpose rarely arrives whole cloth. From stardust dust bunnies. Dust bowl dust, unto dust to dunbar's. What of his love? What of his lust dust is a thing. Astronomers collect and where the Sparrow faiths herself, not a cloud in the sky mother says as she hangs the laundry outside father paints on plan air, and we girls sweep crumbs under the rug this summer, father sees inferno everywhere. No dust-ups from little girls as a consequence one scribbled on the dustbins of history and the other one just sticky lated qualitatively and the mother the mother lived in the vacuum inside. The senseless Carter's the daughter cannot respirable inside the vulgar cosmic the mother cannot be revived. And streaming wet traffic. Nowadays, I lie down in the sunlight to see my momma molding around a sympathetic ash. Yes. One morning whether misty or yellow I'll be soot with her elegiac and original. So we like to ask our guests this kind of like a little recommendation quarter. I don't know what a recommendation corner of that. Guys that. Little call for a knockout of something a piece of art palm, a movie, a potato chip of particular flavor, something that has knocked you out recently and really impress. You. Is there anything you would like to? Anybody asked me that always draw blank. That's really. I'm gonna lie. Lies are on the mainland. Never. I come to Chicago. I go to the Art Institute. And you know, when you those Maine's Biggles with the liars, and you see the sarong the pointillism Sarai. Yes. You go up there. But you turn right and one of those small galleries there is a panel of I think four five six paintings as a series of the life of John the Baptist, and it makes me crazy because well, it's beautiful. But also at that time in each panel. They have John the Baptist like walking around. So you see him two or three or four times, you know, when they're bringing his head in you see the guy bringing this head in. And then you say the same guy in the same picture giving the head on a platter to the king. It's phenomenal. You know? So they're creating on this flat surface movement. You know, it's like a cartoon, but it's completely static. And I have to. See that every time I'm here because it makes me crazy. It's so beautiful and horrific just fascinated by it. I'm a little fascinated by the idea of severed heads I have to say calling Dr Freud. But I I need to see that. So is it the the time like flattened didn't in this weird way that affecting for you or what or the more the severed head is all of it, or I guess it's all of it. It's it's the story. But I think even more than the story, it's the portrayal. And you know, the background is fairy very abstract looking it just makes me crazy. And I love that feeling that kind of crazy I love. So it's like a painting that you come and look at every time, you're a little pilgrimage. Yeah. I just to make sure it's Phil titillates. You. Yep. That's right. My my my scalp goes crazy. So now, it is come to my personal favorite part of the show this versus that in which we should play. God. So scary. Got got got his, you know. Actions. I'm all about. Elizabeth aggravate. Anything that Ryan's dominate Trix. He thought put him spank Bank. All right. So we're gonna give you two things. We're gonna ask you which of them would win a fight. So in this corner today, we have undefeated champion portals, and and this other corner we have other undefeated champion dust who wins at a fight portals were dust. This may be one of like our weirdest one. So first of all I don't want them in corners. Okay. That bugs me. Okay. I would want them to be more like sumo players standing in the middle of square with like a circle of. I think at salt her anyway. Okay. You got it Kim Malayan saw. Kim Malayan saw. Okay. Good a step on barefoot. And it's going to hurt. I would have to say portal because a portal is going to pull in or push out the dust so but as the dust ever, then defeated of this imagined the clogging the portal. Yeah. Vacuum. Oh, so maybe they they more like unite support a wave just becomes vacuums someone have to win. Anyway. Nobody has the win. Oh, okay. And that's how the first back and clean house. Dust in a sumo. That's how who star. Yeah. Where can people find you? If they wanna they wanna find you in the world, do they snail mail yet, or no they can find me, I used my queens college Email address, don't you? So okay. Only mean, then I don't know. I like people give their social media. They have. Oh, okay. Okay. Well, I do have a website. You can find me on that website that the Chapa. Brewed is out in the world. It is out in the world. And the new book will be out sometime. I hope so. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. I love you. Both. Joe the Lord for Kimiko Hahn all the lords the lords all of God's and the new got in the in the middle gods. Like not. But like just like outdated God. Yeah. Yeah. Got everything. She was saying was so good. I was really vibe in with what she was saying about those portals. Yeah. You can like open up space to be transported in the poem. Because of like words doing lots of extra work. Yeah. And like that create the residents that you can like move into the especially like that being about trusting the reader writes for them to take themselves over they need to go, right? Right. Which is sometimes kind of a risk. Yes. It is. Because sometimes he will take themselves to some wild places. Enter a portal into just space like I'm that's not where we trying to go Porto outside they right mind. Okay. Friday. What is the wrong? Est portal. Anybody has ever with through in one of your though wrong turn. People that come up to you have to reading I loved that Paul because it was about blah, blah, blah you bitch. There's a misinterpretation of a poem. That's like weirdly common. I've poem called pussy monster. Love it where I take the words of a low Wayne song. And then reorder the words in order of the frequency the number of times that the were each word appears in the song, and I saw on YouTube that some people had commented. I don't know why was in the comments, but this is a long time ago, but they but somebody had commented like this poem is about like how hip hop is. Like so meaningless and Mike hip hop. These days is so stupid or whatever. And it was like well, first of all like, this isn't like this isn't this song? That isn't even hip hop. These days like like it's old low in song. I kinda freaked out by the interpretation because that's like so far from what I was trying to talk about in Lino. I think the poem was really just like an experiment with what would happen if I like looked at this piece of text. Had the word pussy in it a lot. And like just like I was like what would happen if if we just rearranged it? So that all the time that he said pussy were in one place. It was a critique that I wasn't even trying to make in like, so Mr. acted, and I was like I don't want my poem to like become a weapon in someone else's hand for the thing that they're trying to attack. I'm not trying to attack. And so I was sort of like like, maybe I'll like stop performing it for a while. What about you? Well, see, I'm the answer this the right way. But I think sometimes people don't even listen to the poem for the portals like this is a situation where this woman came up to me. And I think she was just looking at my black acid portal because I do have a lot of homes about like, you know, racial, you know, issues and dynamics in this country and stuff like that. But this particular night. I did I was like, you know, what I'm gonna like suck dick and every home and it was just like the sex set. Right. And this white woman comes up to me crying after as she was like, oh my God. Everything you had to say about black boys in this country tonight was and I was just like, and I like that wasn't. Maybe I was just like was like outside just like watching. You too. Coming into. Yeah. And I had to go back and look at the set us like what did I like accidentally like have a racial critique tonight. So yeah. So it wasn't even a portal. It was more of the situation where I think like somebody uses poetry like feel whatever they need to feel was just going to read whatever they want to into that sounds like a hard case because it sounds like you were putting together a set that was like a joyous set. Like a joyous. Sure. Sure. But for then somebody to like walk away from that wind like, wow, thanks for letting me cry about black death. When that wasn't your intention is like, that's so weird toes weird in moments like that. I just wish that there were real portals that I could push people through. Get the hell away from maybe let's portals and portal to the of the show. Yeah. Who we think in this week? Well, speaking of four does I'm going to thank my siblings, rigid, Paul always. But especially for showing me the video game portal and portal two, but also just generally for allowing me to have like a little tiny bit of my pinky into what the gaming world is like the general. I'm also do Porto related. Thank you. I want to thank Rick and Morty or making marijuana. The fun is adventure ever. I get high. And I watched that show, and my my sweet Lord those boys slows support those those supporters to scary to watch super high. I love it. I was watching together. All right, cool.

Poetry Off The Shelf

Save Everything

"This is poetry off the shelf. I am hill another today. save everything. there's a museum in philadelphia would drawers of almost two thousand five hundred objects all swallowed by kids. Buttons small toys a school pin for perfect attendance. The objects were retrieved by a doctor. Dr chevrolet shot eight jackson and put on display so others could learn how best remove a potentially deadly foreign body in foreign bodies her latest poetry collection kimiko hahn takes the story of objects lost and recovered to tell her own kimiko. Hahn grew up. In pleasantville new york in a household that revolved around art. Her parents were artists who enrolled both han and her sister in lots of different classes from painting to dance to music and her childhood home was filled with our catalogs and paint supplies but after the sudden death of her mother almost thirty years ago. Their home changed. Her father had a hard time throwing things away at some point. He wouldn't let his daughters come inside anymore. They only entered the house after he died. Three and a half years ago to try and pick through the stuff that was covering the floors hans about that process. That was a kind of recovery and excavation of things from our childhood. I recently talked to kiko han about her new collection. Here's our conversation. I wanted to ask you about foreign bodies. But i also wanted to go back a little bit further first because Foreign bodies is so full with objects and so the first thing i wanted to know was is there an object from your childhood that had a powerful hold on you. Something almost talismanic for new Well not really have to think of that for a while I mean there were objects that were important to me. And of course i had various junk drawers where these objects lived. The first thing that came to mind though was one christmas. I got a little children's safe with an actual combination lock. I don't know how old i was. Maybe eight or nine now. Seven or eight. I dunno old enough to use a combination lock. Rife and. I can't remember what i put in it but there are probably tells manic important object but in japan we We lived in japan for a year. And there's a game. They look like flat marbles their use like little flat round shapes of glass with you almost like a flu of paint and some friends. They're taught me how to play with them. And it is like marbles. Uk's sort of drop him down and shoots through And they seem so important that one. I bought some for myself. I didn't even take them out of the bag. They're probably somewhere around or maybe they're maybe they're still in my father's house somewhere buried wherever house under no one they did with it but allah allah leftover stuff What maybe not comes close. Yeah and why do you think your parents gave you a little safe. Oh i don't know. Maybe it's because i mean my sister got went to my younger. She's younger than i am. And i don't know maybe we were squabbling too much or something. Let's just these things separate. There are some things that only belong to you. I don't know but i love that idea. I mean it's so fantastic. Because they think. I don't have kids but just sort of observing my friends kids this development of marking your territory and being like this is mine. You know no one else can touch that right. It's so strong so strong. And so it's funny that your your parents took it to the next level and we're like fine you can. I guess who knows what they're thinking. Maybe they were just happened to be on sale. And did you spend a lot of time alone as a kid. Just sorta doing or thinking your own thing. I did Mostly because the house we lived in was on the outskirts of town. I had a good friend who lived next door a year older so i play with her a lot as a child. But we also fought like two little kittens who are just always squabbling. And she moved away and As i got older. I did spend more and more time by myself because everybody else was live far away. Half a mile mile away and It was not a convenient walk to get anywhere and little treacherous walking or even riding a bike. And i didn't want as my parents to drive me around everywhere on And then by the time. I got to high school. I kind of took myself out of pretty much. Took myself out of socializing so really did spend a lot of time by myself except for a boyfriend in new york city. Oo so little precocious there but Yeah but not not not so much school friends. i i was a little i felt so vulnerable. I probably looked like i was conceited. Or something what does that mean again. he knows full of myself that i thought i was better than everybody else. But that wasn't it at all. I i was actually felt very vulnerable so i would eat lunch alone and stuff like that. Yeah and did you have something you know something you'd like to do where you could express yourself and and bloom instead of feel vulnerable well Listen to music This in Let's see. I went to high school in the early seventies. So there was plenty of terrific rock and roll Listen to music read and write And also i grew up in a family of a visual artists. So mices try. Were always during sort of crafty things. So tie dying t shirts because i was a hippie. You making beads. Because i wasn't happy inside eyeing that was like in the bathtub. Or where did you tell them. This stove on the stove boiling water and then putting the in. Yeah yeah well. Yeah what were you. Tie-dying was that shirts or was that sure things to hang on the wall. No she outfits. Yes yes sure and skirts. And yeah and i would Either use rubber bands. Or i would stitch and pull and then wind the thread six read around the pole polls fabric and was this whole hippie thing. Was that east dedic for you or or did you also have an inkling about the politics of it was that it. It was a social statement. why my boyfriend in the city My sister and i took japanese language and dance from the time. We were fairly young. And so i met my my boyfriend because he is his japanese american. He was also in japanese language. Class with me you is a real radical. Though i mean he so i was introduced to politics and grassroots organizing and movement and marxism and all that stuff in high school and it was pretty heady pretty attractive. Barents been believing go. We just wanted you to japanese. And what did you do with a new found. Domain of life you know was that like discussion groups. Did you read a lot. Was it just sitting around and listening to other people debate the future of the world or like what you know what shape that it take. Well i really only saw him on saturdays. When i was taking japanese language class and dance. what i would read things that he recommended Recently thought of reading Sout existentialism and really not understanding so you know just trying to understand what was going on. And i did go to some of his meetings and listened to People hold for sin organized and that was that was very exciting One of the people. I met during that period too was Her name was itchy coach. Yama and her mother. Yuriko chioma was a very very big deal in the movement. Yeah and in fact when malcolm x. was assassinated. She was there in audubon ballroom with him and held him as he lay dying so there are some extraordinary people who i met when i was quite young. Yeah and did you. I mean since he didn't grow up with that kind of discourse at home or even the practice of debating you know the yeah the state of the country or something that it was more focused on art and crafts. Did you feel intimidated by little. I'm sure i did. But i was also at that point in my life. You know with a feminism and so forth and the original edition of our bodies ourselves ourselves and and really coming into my own. I was feeling pretty assertive. So i did feel intimidated but but also sort of and i think my boyfriend at the time was also very good and including an encouraging me I feel that in high school or for most of my case through twelve that i really wasn't I think in the town. I grew up in. We weren't encouraged to think analytically not deeply. I mean we were really encouraged to think enough to take and pass tests and to get into college. If that's what we wanted. But it wasn't until i really went to marxist study groups after college that i began to think more analytically for myself and also that i realized i was required to have an opinion as part of this group and i was being asked for my opinion and that was very powerful. Actually to have to speak up. I had to speak up. Yeah i i'm so intrigued by that. I mean one of the reasons. I by that as i come from a family that seems in that regard at least very similar There was only art home. That was the only real reality. Everything else was just sort of not worthy of absolutely. Yes so this thing that you said about analytical thinking. I feel to certain degrees. I still don't know how to do that. And i don't know how to. If it can be taught to think analytically do you feel like you. You got to a place where you actually could. Is that something that can be learned. I i feel. I did I mean i really. I really wasn't study groups where we studied dialectics okay mark marxist dialectics and to look at what sort of contradictions come up. And what does that mean. Both in a discussion but also in looking just around us and so i was given a tool which i could use and then later at sept or develop or Reject but just just being given a tool to use was Tremendous tremendously powerful for me. and i use it to this day. I it's still a little abstract to me. Like can you give me an example of what was the thing for instance that you would look at in the real world and what would it mean to look at it to a dialectic lens owe okay. Sorry Well i mean even if you look at the police today yeah and so dialectical thinking might be see. Something of jek. Deeply writing. Elise are being paid by taxpayers to protect people and property. subjectively. That doesn't always happen. Sometimes they are outside the law even But that's what i mean. I look at things objectively. What is supposed to happen and then look at the reality. What does happen. And where does that happen. Why this contradiction. I mean you can see the incredible contradiction in the attack on the capital where you had some people who were part of that sedition crowd. They were actually Somewhere police officers somewhere army or ex army and they were attacking people who were there to protect and trying to protect. Do they were there and tried to do their job. So that's a very interesting contradiction. But that's how i look at things but that's really just i love that. I mean it sounds very simple when you describe it. Just stay how you know what it's supposed to be objectively and then see how real reality deviates that seems very manageable it is it is very simple and I'm actually teaching a craft class right now at queens college Graduate class on poetic closure. It's a theory that barbara herbstein smith wrote about in one thousand nine hundred sixty four and when i read it as a graduate student it completely impacted and has influenced the way i read. Write or an at least revise. I wouldn't say right. Say revise read revise and also teach. And one thing. I love about it. will a number things i love about it. One is that it's a theory that's very experienced really bound It it it's a theory that has all sorts of psychological and emotional dimensions. Which i think is important to art. I mean it's not just a cerebral exercise right. Yeah and basically. It's looking at repetition. What kind of repetition do you see. Being launched in by the title on the beginning of the palm throughout and then where is the deviation that might signal the closure so again it's repetition and deviation that's a contradiction. Wow that is incredible. How similar though they are and how again it allows you. If it what is so pleasing about this is that it is a very simple tool that allows you to see complexity. Yes yeah it it completely does. This theory is just brilliant. Well would you. Would you be open to reading one of your poems and then talk me through it. You know how does theory of closure comes up in this particular poem. Is that something to do Schumer i'm trying to think what which I mean i. There's one that. I was thinking of because actually the closure really intrigued me and so i wanted to ask about that. It's the one called foreign body on page fifty five before you read it though. There was also a version on the poetry foundation website. But it was a little bit different. I don't know which one you prefer. I'll read the one Since i have my book in front of me oh yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and is there anything you want to say before you read it. I would just say that. Although the story of chevy quixote jackson and the objects that he took out of children's respiratory system those foreign bodies although that initiated for me the phrase and what would become a collection. I at some point realized that. I wanted to explore the phrase in other areas immigration the immigrants body and also my grandmother my mother and my body so my mother and i were born here in the united states but visually people have mistaken us for being foreign so foreign body. This is a poem on my others. Body i mean my mother's body. I mean the one who saved her braid of blue black hair in a drawer. I mean the one. I could lean against against as in since fuzzy dress of wuzzy one red lipstick. One rubber gloves won her one to me. Badger badger or so. I heard the one body. I write on her son's looked body as she bathed in the afternoon. Was i five. It was summer then winter where today. I called the unlocked bathroom to mind. I cannot leave your body alone. Which is how i found. Mother escaping the heat of a nineteen fifties house father on a ladder with blow torch to scrape the paint off the outside badger. Badger the sun in those suburbs simmered the tar roof over our rooms in the town where the wasp's lived inside paper cells beneath both eaves and routes they sing. I mean sting very much. The wasp's i'm sixty sweet dried papaya. My hair a bit tarnished. My in most no memory is falling away. As if an image shattered shards than re-collected for a kaleidoscope. I clicked the pieces into sharp arrangement. Bad bad girl girl in turn. A daughter turned sovereign. Thank you well What can i say. Well do you wanna. I talk about the repetitions sure. Yeah i mean that. I mean one. Repetition is very directly about language and making mistakes in speaking sort of i. guess what. We call freudian slips right. Might others body. Where i say. I mean my mother's body and that happens again they sing. I mean sting very much So there are mis- hearings in the poem but then the biggest mishearing is by the child who here's badger. She thinks she hears the mothers saying badger the animal. Yeah but in fact. It's bad girl. Which she resolves in the end by saying bad bad girl girl yeah. I'd say the dominant repetition is expression. Misunderstanding i suppose commute to some kind of resolution the ending Changed my i. No memory is falling away. As if an image shattered shards than re collected for kaleidoscope. I clicked the pieces into sharp arrangement. Bad bad girl girl in turn. A daughter turned sovereign. I endings lately although they don't do this to have some element of sound Kind of a constellation of sound. And so i think one thing about sovereign that i liked is at the and repeats. Turn turn sovereign net the next generation will be more powerful or more empowered more empowered levy say. That's were. I wanted it to land. I suppose yeah. I was intrigued by ending. Also because i i read the version that was on the poetry website and in that version. That last sentence is a little bit different I can't remember what is it. I'll i'll read it for you. So it's you know. I'll start from the top of that verse. I click the pieces into sharp arrangements. Grouse crow craven no now. My own daughter turned sovereign So in this version there is no Crow yeah yeah and then that end all of a sudden turn. It's almost as if a car has been turning around this roundabout an author's your goes into a road you know. Interna daughter turned sovereign and so. Can you talk about like that. Theory of closure sort of how. Those repetitions can lead you to that turn. Will the mother the repetition of mother and then the relationship and then an incoming to realize that badger was bad girl but in that realization feeling empowered. I guess I'm not necessarily the most reliable person to speak about my own palms helpfully. I'm not the most jobs. So i guess. In terms of closure. I realized that the animals i had in the penultimate line although i liked playing with the word craven because it is not an animal it just sounds like an animal wanted to hold onto that but i realized that that's not where the palm was going that i had to ring badger some kind of resolution with that that you had to bring the badger because you that was where the poem was pushing you got to the is going. Yeah yeah that is so interesting. And i love that. You also make the distinction between the writing phase and the revision phase that this theory of closure is something you only use when revising so that you don't let it Guide you while you're writing. I think that's really interesting. How do you separate those. Because how can you separate things your own mind. That are already there. It is I think one has to trick oneself into getting into your own raw material. But it's tricking right. You have to trick yourself into it. I think i had a student who has way over thinking her drafts. She actually was revising as she wrote and said oh no no no. Don't do that for your early. Drop his because her work was interesting but just really too tight. Oh she came up with writing on her cell phone in the subway. And it really. It really changed just sort of blew open. Oh so the cell phone is just to make. It seem as if it's no big deal. No big deal. I thought we could just go back to a poem. It's the one called a dusting. It's on page fifteen. And i don't know if you wanna say something about it before you read it well I don't believe that there is a heaven or there is any life after death. But i remember once and one of my first teaching gigs. I had a student who's friend had just died and said he felt that one day wherever his friend is he'll be with him too and that was very comforting to hear. My mother had recently died and that was very comforting. Aung and when i said that to my my husband a few years ago he said what does that even mean busy. You couldn't. he couldn't understand what i was trying to express and for me. It's very clear. My mother may be nothing. And i'll be nothing with her and he said well if you're nothing you can't be nothing with her. I said well. But i will be if she's dust then i'm also dust so that's where that sort of the long explanation of where this poem came from beautiful dustin however mother has reappeared say as moats on a feather duster scientists say the galaxy was thus created this daybreak Cloud ever mother is bound. She's joined ashes ashes or dirt underfoot or bits off tower. North and tower south purpose does not arrive. Whole cloth thank you. I was struck by the number of references to dust and clouds. That dot your collection and Yeah in this poem. of course. it's obvious that there is a connection with grief and with where the people we lose go and how we find them again. But i was also struck by. I mean this is. This is so playful right like the you know however mother has reappeared. Say as moats on feather duster. Only you can say that right like no one else could see that about your or ryan -sulting right and i'm just so struck by the way that you bring play into grief and i was if you wanna talk about that well for this poem i actually did some Research on different kinds of dust Even other poems were dust appears and so the poem almost functions as a list of where we find us And if you think of the poem is having a kind of list element to it then. Some of those elements are bound to be humorous or bad or maybe even Upsetting you with a list structure. You can hit different notes. A ha and that's what i like. I like to hit those different notes in a single piece. Yeah was the language. Play is very important to my poetics. It comes in part from japanese aesthetics and the value that japanese put on multiple meanings. Puns as being humorous or witty but in fact. They're they're very sophisticated. It's a very sophisticated way to play and also to have a poem move more spatially as opposed to more linear meaning Ha so when i'm looking at a draft. I want to be able to see if i can explode. The language open a little bit with word play. Yeah i'm just so interested in poetics of punning or playing and sort of almost purposely send the reader in the wrong direction. Of course it isn't is just another direction you know but but of course if you're going in one direction it will feel wrong for a second and i'm just wondering like is this something you have to do on purpose get yourself out of the the rails that you're on a or is that something that just happened automatically if it is something you do on purpose. How do you do that. A quarter of. It is unawareness. Just because i britain because i've written so much over the year heart of it is unawareness. I love language play. And so i'm i'm very open to it. I guess the answer would be. I'm very open to that kind of language play. I mean honestly it's like a is like flirting Right in high school or college. Whenever i would watch mae west movies. She was Very coy and sometimes even vulgar. In the way she'd flirt with men her come onto our incredible and that is so much fun and that is the same part of the brain uses. You know just sort of Tease if you will Tees and flirt and have that double entendre. You know Leaving things open love this metaphor by the way and so to push a little further more. Are you flirting with. Is it with the words or is it with the reader. i'd say it's with Tastes with the reader alternately. The reader it's i just playing and having fun but ultimately it's with the reader this an invitation. Yeah i i was wondering if we can get to one last home. It's the one called unearthly delights and one that opens your book shimmer bodies and yeah again if you will if you want to say something before you start. I wrote this song because poet and editor was putting together a collection. That responded to bausch and brogel. I believe unfortunately he never found a publisher. Glad i did write this poem. Good file yeah. So i was lucky. He gave me that assignment. I love assignment. So i was lucky for Unearthly delights after you rip screen seasoning to start again before you start again then. Can i ask you to say maybe a little bit about your father in the context in which this was written sure My father was a hoarder growing up my sister and i thought. Oh it's because you know. He grew up in the depression. And you want to save everything. But in fact after my mother died he began to accumulate more and more things in soon it was just literally junk junk mail and the house is a mess and he wouldn't let us in to help with anything So when he died we had to go in there and deal with both junk but also his artwork is things that he had collected treasures. So that's where the speaker is unearthly delights. After you rips through the screen and wedged yourself into father's bedroom you find a pile of art supply catalogs round scraps of bedspread cotton batting a rodent body rodent hurt and tiny white naked human creatures flipped topsy turvy to skewer down the house and out the mouth and the primordial who's that is manifestly the brimstone and bile of this book left open to bosh is realm beneath the left hand of god my fox legacy of human bonfire. Thank you put again. There's this incredible turn in this poem from the things. You've got the speaker fines. In the house you know brown scraps of bedspread. Cotton batting eroding body rhode and turds and then all of a sudden poop speaker fines. It's it's something probably opened an art cattle oriented art in a book of paintings right Tiny white naked human creatures flipped topsy turvy to skewer down the ass and out the mouth in the primordial who's that is manifestly brimstone bil- of this book left open to boscq realm beneath the left hand of god. And we all have seen these bosses Paintings i suppose but just for those of us who have not co- could you just. I mean i guess you already. Did you describe a little bit. What kind of paintings he may've World their books he has. He has paintings of heaven And everybody's having a grand old time right. Everyone's having a delightful heavenly time. Right His paintings of hell are really ones Where people are being tortured in horrible ways. So this is literally A description of at least one. If not more of the poor creatures at end up in hell okay so that turn right from the things in the room to do things in the book Okay just walk me through sort of how that happened right. Will the literal staff Yeah to open the book and to see this painting An illustration of this painting But to also do this book that is fox to right. That has a mold on it or what have you. Oh that's what that means. Yeah yeah it's when a book is moldy or has damage So my legacy is the sort of damaged book or damage article. It's a damaged legacy really. Well i also really a and maybe this is a really wrong interpretation so so you you tell me but i found that that turn you know where the bush painting get sort of connected to this. mess in in the room. That i it. It brought in a lot of tenderness for the speakers father's situation Because it sort of shows in a the human condition to to me. At least i felt like oh wow. Human beings have just sort of been creating a mess for themselves since time immemorial. I just can't help ourselves. you know. I liked that. I liked that suggestion. So i'll take it. I don't know if you noticed but I decided to put the dedication page at the end of the and its the book is dedicated to my father I did not want it in the beginning to color pawns. I have about him. I wanted the reader to know if they if they end up hitting that page That when all is said and done he was difficult man and and But when all is said and done light these very important to me. And i loved him dearly. Then when did you i mean. How long ago did you write that last sentence. My fox legacy of human bonfire I think i wrote it before. He died actually. He died only three and a half years ago and so. Do you feel like this sentence has as become more to since he died our. Yes really. Yeah because my sister. And i have gone through the house and we sold the house so And i have sings of his in storage and my four daughters already told me mom. We don't want it kiko.

Oh he was only betty white's ninety nine. He looks like death he. It's like the subaru. Indu was still out there making mitch. Mcconnell has listen this too much for me. let's move on 'cause i'm matt listens. Role says it. Mike that he was inappropriate. You know what if i can do know what that is. Growth is growth growth. All right. so let's talk about these anime adaptations that are coming so blue period. I wanna watch that okay. So i read the manga right. I have volume one. And i have volume to me about say okay so check. It's not no no no. It's not that i don't like it. Is reggie bush or is it. Corn is corn. I mean that's that's racist. it's me so i'm excited for the anime. I so it's pretty much about this guy. This this boy is he's in high school and He's a he's a junior he gets into art and it's just a story of how he gets into art and then he decides to learn painting so that he can go to like the best school in japan. So it's a really. Yeah it's really. I really like it and then what i also like about. It is that it has like little educational moments where they tell you like the difference between like paintings shadings and space. And how my jon. Allen then i like that it was just the maga was just very long. It seemed very long. So like i got the single volumes and it was like it will probably translate bidders animated probably translates better as an anime. I just felt like the manga dragged out. Because it's a one the first volume the only had like four chapters of what they call four strokes. Those chapters were longest shit. Like i know it takes me about twenty minutes to read one chapter this one like took already to forty. They seem like granted. They were very informational. They wish just. When i was reading i was like damn this bitch shit. I'm not done with this bitch. Okay we gotta. We gotta get into anime form. I think it'll be. I'd like it better. I think it's a monthly manga rather than weekly manga. I'd say that. I think you've been reading a lot of weeklies Inpatient wow. I just find new things about myself every day where it's like. Wow did you are see where this yes inpatient. You wanted now Then in that case. If it's my my mom. And i wanted now then in that case i'll take back what i said if it's just like a monthly manga look it up. That's my bag. It's like four chapters zoo volume. The first chapter of among is like usually sixty pages have to take it back because because really like you're basically saying that a lot of information more than you want to read for something that you just trying to get a little. You know little secret so like that's probably going to be. That's probably going to translate really well onto like a thank you see medium right. Yeah you'll be very entertaining. And i feel like a lot of monthly manga or better. Read the chapter like once per month. 'cause i go to get ditz to read It's weekly now. I mean like when they go on to like talking about the culture is not as you know. 'cause like it's a it's like a seventeen page chapter and then like that's one chapters about this one though aspect and you wait a week till the next part. So it's either action or like a blurb show would loop. i feel like it's super dance. I haven't read it yet. But like i enjoyed it. I enjoyed it now. The main reason. Why i'm just like so. Yeah i would rather see as an enemy there. We go and i'm also reading a manga. That has the same. Storyline is blue period. You remember that one mongo talking about blue giant supreme well. The omnibus came out. Will you know bitch had already preorders easy but it's about music. It's it's the same mark. Yes he does enemy. It's the same thing where like kid in high school. He's in his. You know last years of of you know his high school life. And he's you know figuring out what he wants to do in life. And i tend to like stories like love story search for. They always end. Yeah in a way where you always want more. Yeah and he wants to be like the greatest jazz musician there is. Let's go in arenas book club. 'cause i don't wanna was that the news. Oh no i'm not done so yeah. Let's go on to read natural look. I was ready to this after the news. Because i got some news to cool so i am. I'm just gonna talk about manga adaptations.

The side it's usually to make a different story if they already caught up with in among artists making the different story and you can't produce episodes at the same speed to taps coming out full metal alchemies which one goes with the monitor filler. Knows not filler. It's just an anime of different story. It's weird fool knows way better. What else what say whether it was way better. Yeah brothers great. So i'm really. I'm really intrigued.

They'll have times where they'll try to use like slang and they'll say like is lit. What and all really need the reason why is more reasons. Okay yeah am. Blue period is like that too because in the first volume they i forget the character but like all they said was facts. Facs facts.

I read that. Maybe like two months ago when i just start by getting into my maga binge so that was one of the first few mangas. That assorted reading in november. Got a backlog dude a backlog of grade manga suggestions to give you guys. So yeah. That was my little lady that i can't. I can't wait to finish reading. I know i can read it. I know i can read it online. I know that okay. I just really like physical. Copies giant has a lot of volumes has a lot of volumes like sixteen volumes. Yeah it's a lot of volumes. I'm just very old school. I'm an old school manga collector. I really would only do that for the mangas. I really wanna keep our do. Yeah do joe. Joe and i'll do that for chance all man. It's hard for me to like. Wanna collect margaret. Because i just really don't like having stuff. But because i know i have i have an quality to my personality and i have too much. Oh it's done and it's ten volumes. Okay i can go lift volumes. And then the sea hall then lose two sequels. Ten volumes is a omni buses by like five or six mitch. You have okay. It was close. I was. I was a little off. Okay and then. The sequel blue giant supreme is about ten volumes as well then other sequel after that is blue giant explore which is currently running. Oh i got enough. I gotta i gotta breakfast lunch and dinner but i also know is the second dinner snack. Also don't know in english a lot of companies do this as they would just like label them all as blue giant. Yeah that that's what they did they did did. I'm still read it. Yeah but i didn't know was that there are the yes. Maybe i should read the scans it your joyce really much you want. It's rand since twenty thirteen so it's been good. I like that. I have that open option. i don't know if i'm going to well like you said how you collect manga. I am the same way i am. I prefer to like if there's a series that i'm really into those are the ones i tend to collect and then i got like a couple of. I know sweating. Soap will probably be answered a nice little collection and it just seems like it'd be short short now. I don't think that joy. I feel like it's going to be short. It just moving really fast moving really fast. But there's five all only had the first to iran. What have you been reading my hero. I feel about how you caught up. Cut up what's What's what's happening. Where was having a way that they are in. That one superhero. I mean one. Supervillain league is fighting a sherraki him in that town. Oh okay you're like right where the animal is about the popoff y- okay. That's that's where i'm at town people's powers developing in things. And what a time to be alive you know what though our like reading my hero because there's so much shit that arthur fits in one frame. It's hard to tell. Sometimes what's happening because if you're reading it on. Maybe i'm maybe i'd feel different. If i bought the actual maga blah reading it on a phone is hard sometimes like you literally have to zoom in to like really see what is illustrated there sometimes the illustrations. I get very mud muddle. Because there's so much action happening and one thing. Yeah it's really kind of hard to digest visually so struggling through that. I think for me Tack on time was like that. When i read the first season out crazy. But that's what. I read the first and the second season read because it's just salata action in one like little tiny box offering but that's what i'm reading but i do. I am reading a web toon. I love is for you. Because i i like to read. I like to it with tunes. They give me like t. You know what. I'm saying. Like i need my mile girl. No you didn't do their beat. That's why we're trying to get sometimes atom bombs and i'm reading this web tune called the remaining empress usury to crystalline. Let's call period pieces. Not really okay. I got to be in the mood. Okay this is what it's about it's called the remarry empress right in. It's about this empress has been married to this.

Emperor takes on a concubine who he is like shoving this concubine down the empresses throat and basically that's what it's about the concubine gets pregnant. She's like all up in the emperor's shit.

It's you know trying to be with the emperor china trying to get in with the emperor's you know it's a it's a pretty. I enjoy the story. I don't know how you feel about stories like that blog but the tease for me. Honey i'm witted. i think he would like crystal. Ooh i'm looking at it now. I'm saying the t. Picks up it's like everybody in the comedy is the girls name the concubine. Her name is rushed and everybody in the comments is call her trash like they over the sheet. They like what their bid.

They're still doing good stuff. I no evil still going right in the manga. They're dirty fourteen hundred chapters and entrepreneur. Fourteen hundred since the eighties. Yeah i wonder what is going on his storyline. Right now. who know. Do you want to know yeah. So what's he doing now right. He's he's been the dough for a bit so you know you got. No you know fucking anyone in spoilers two minutes so in hydro. The big plotline in heisman pose like around chapter thousand. me show. Site had wasn't an epo epo. He retired from boxing because he lost because he he didn't lose the spark what he had signs of crazy mental crazy head trauma because he is he gets his ass beat a lot and he doesn't do anything to prevent that so he was like getting dizzy and like losing focus in his hands and shit so to stop it he just like quit early and now he's a trainer and he has like little pupils like he's raising them up by everybody. The whole like underlying plotline is like maybe that was this fall sign. And when is epo actually gonna come back to boxing. Yeah that's crazy so like we all know that he's probably gonna come back to boxing now which is like watching everybody else do thing you know. What's his name. Big old at takumura. You don't wanna fight somewhere. He's gone weird circuit. An orphan is key. Bieber's was that He's still was a coat crazy. Crazy like flags the shadow. Dan and i saw the babies in the fourth. Like what the fuck right there like that. Okay what's this topic is still this week came. We don't want black table talk. Formerly this out got some say that name but you know like his. I like black label more and do like like. Hey i do like the southwest. Some because it's just we inserted a clip of andres saying the south guy slam to say. I dunno but you're not majority rules around these parts anyway. The topic this week is me. Pull my notes. Real quick is the reps e. representation of black folk and anime and manga. We've done a lighter topic on this before. But i am bringing up this again to show more prevalent. Examples of good and bad in this topic came across because i tweeted on twitter. That hey I'm excited for shaman. King but i really hope they changed tokelau's design and somebody came across it was like hey is a video of why choke lows designers and racist and i come back to like right now now. Okay yes but the dude. Making a video wasn't white. It was some it was a black guy being like offended by design. So it's not racist obviously and like That's not the point. The reputation in a black folk and anime and manga alaba now or don't want really do the research of is stems from a lot of caricature from america's they were passover during the war minstrel shows. Absolutely absolutely you see the. The absolute charcoals gained big ass. Donut lips Crazy hairs off like that. So yeah yeah. They know that. And i feel i feel. There's no excuse at this point in time. There's enough out there you see enough. You're part of our culture. 'cause you love dancing you love break dancing. You love doing alessia. So i know that you know when appropriate representation of black people is is just starting people. Choose to do what they wanna do that. Charcoal of shit. Yeah i had to break it down. It's like he's thinking about chocolate. I like he's a wonderfully written character. That like he has a great character arc. He's he's my favorite character in shaman king by with him having that we taint of being stand from missile shows is what makes me uncomfortable design. It doesn't matter like what he represents. A like what his character is the fact that like we should have that part like remaining is like it's not that hard to change the design and i hopefully with the example of. Have you read hunter now. But you watch on sunday and you know the little black canary. How she looked in the show. Here let me show you all four here before design before design. You seen it before. This is super light skin red hair. That's the anime version you know mongo like in the manga. She was super. She looked skin in the mar in the manga. It just didn't have any colorado handle color so we didn't know what she looked like. They just colored her the way they color but to me the way they shaded her in amman goods me she was light skin. I don't think i've ever seen too. Many light-skinned maga characters are out. There are usually. Which is i usually guard. Skin canary. let me see. Yeah she looks no no we. Did you lose more questionable at an original appearance She spoke in the door will now But even then that was the like is they figure it's all a mistake. This is her twenty eleven. Let me think okay. The arthur took a moment and was like or lease. Probably somebody took took him aside as i go. This is not a a step further when they made the enemy. I appreciate because she's adorable anime. I appreciate that let me see. Yeah i appreciate that. It's really important for people to say this and really important to make sure that you know the history and why we're not saying that we don't like to care to we're not we're not saying that the characters bad was saying that. Hey this represents a very harmful part of history that it shouldn't be this way and you should know better of representing lousy. You cannot represent people correctly. Then don't put them in animated you leave him out. Because i was merged rather have a more comfortable anime. Viewing experience to does not have to trigger me racially. Just leave it out. Like i don't need to see myself in your medium. I don't see that. Because i understand that it stems from japan. You know what i'm saying and the characters are japanese. Need you to show me some weird as representational fucking black person all at big crazy. I'm not. I never gone to a point. I've said this before. My love of an anime. Just can't i can't just like sweep that under the rug anymore Because like i've said before the blurred community like has anime on. Its bet like we are the moving force in the anime community. So y'all gotta come correct for me. You can write the hands down. Best story that i have ever seen on tv. And i will not put you in my top five. Because i promise neverland is a great story put. I'm not willing to you. Aitmatov is you'll never leave my yup. Never never never. I will never see you talk when people ask me what some of my patients are probably will not recommend three. Yes really commend. That like with that. How can i win you. Drying us like What are you saying then. And then it's not like it came out like like drawing wasi came out in the eighties. I think that's ridiculous but it's not like that came on as she came out. Twenty seven hundred two thousand seventeen. The fuck is wrong with you. There's no excuse for that. There's really no excuse. Yeah even with like other examples. Eight hunter i'm thinking rather black hair. You black lagoon. we're not. I said jay black supposedly blake things ex. Yeah with all shimmy toro's watanabe's worse shinichi. He on it collided on it. He is on it because yeah it's really interesting to see his idology like speak through his work of we live in a world unlike. Let's represent these people properly is gonna take the time. I love that because love it is just there is no way they. We will colonize other planets in on people that will be on those plans. Japanese people s impossible. That is wild. Like shinichi rose are just is a plethora of colors usually white people. You see japanese who you see black people. You see all sorts of people. I love his work. And that's he'll always be a go. And if anybody asked me what you should start with. What am i gonna definitely watch cowboy bebop. Yup that is some premium grade. A shit right there. Quality slapping at soundtrack beautiful characters. You can just live in manga now manga. Sorry anime you can just wash that shit over over over aging so goulet will ages so will so definitely went some somebody. Great great u. dub is fucking great quality. You know that some people even daphne's people prefer the dow over then japanese which how well of course it added man is a really good job with get a really good job ca squirrel back back back back on instagram page. We put up a performance of them performing. I in yeah. Yeah the real folk blues once when we first started a the quarantine when everybody was doing those quarantine concert. Yup they got a real folk blues corentin on just searching on youtube. Ashes slaps because i didn't put the whole thing up so easily. Anybody who don't who doesn't feel offended by black robes anime. Saying that like you should but you really should with saying that. There's a reason why we're into the reason why it shouldn't be there more. Yeah she is doesn't ask she should some ashi shit and like you don't represent all a black folk and you shouldn't because no matter like what you think about it and how you feel about it you probably don't know enough of the history realize that it's harmful to perpetrating imagery of black folk or whatever. It is like the video that does do sammy was like. How can you race. The signifying feature. Blackpool's like it's no reggie me. So he was saying donut. Lives was a stylized of of races of black labs. And how can you raise out of you know. It's not because you can. You can easily. They draw they draw japanese characters all the time with full full and they don't look like that and are you fucking mind to say that that is like how you draw fucking crazy. Are you fucking crazy like you thank you. That's what they look like. Let's say you're racist and go solve into csl fraternal is racism. Yeah just say that. Let's say and then on top of that like if you are here saying something as crazy as that's not offensive to you. Don't represent yourself as if we're monolith because you don't speak for me ask you don't fucking speak for me bro. You don't speak from me. Like shit is fucking offensive. Who wants to watch. Some shady brings them so much joy to go and what and turn on a caricature of themselves who will also see else's. Yeah who to see that shit like are you you mental you mental and you're you're overstepping to to to speak on behalf of all of us. How dare you you got your mother fucking nerves and then for a white person a back door there and find the one video would adducing thing took alums designs. Shut the fuck you hit all speak for all of us and you don't get a fine one video to represent oughta feelings of all the black people in a world even if they were okay with it still would feel like him. His is real crazy crazy. You look slow. Grey's book fucking crazy. He looks fucking crazy. Here's the thing geneva understand about black people we're coolers for bitch we hold a pen on cu. We hold the patent flavor all swag and for you draw us like that like you at your fucking mind your fucking mind looking mind so i hope they changed it. Oh do for me. They're really going to restore some faith in me. If they can just not be tone deaf for one fucking second hopefully find out what studios doing a shaman king. Because they didn't write with hunter. I think that was mad. House to the nose madhouse under there was mad c. c. so sean mccain. You just had to do one thing. He's a while this fucking thing in shaman king. The other black hairdos in that. Show them that. Don't look like that. it's so it's so fucking you make the main character. Black hair made the made the one the pivotal black hair. Black hair look look like that. Look like that. And i thank my thing about it is is. Why include us in the story. You know what. I mean why. Why why why draw us into your shit. Just make fun of us. What is that. What the fuck is that. Because i honestly don't 'cause he's a thing goes there will be stolen and will say that they don't think it's making fun of us they think it's just representing back by. I buy i bet you. That's what lobby will say. Cures auriemma to draw their black man is a caveman sitting on a branch or raise watching. Tv a while. We're in the age of prisoner button in a house. Pops out prisoners an outfit pops out. You mean to tell me that. That's what black people are doing sitting on branches in the caveman outfit with a bone in their nose watching tv. And that's acceptable and nick run around her acting. Like daddy eck in like okay. Economic drag bazi is the answer to all enemies like acting like dragon. ball z. Is the thing to be in the anime community. Love down just for you illustrate them like that. And that's the type of should i'm talking about.

Shit about this fucked up is that it's not even the biz who say that if you will come for you confidence dig. What i'm tired of. Rent goes nets. What you've been watching got any for us. you know what. I've been watching skate. The infinity world slept slap. The shit is a motherfucking bob. You hear me gladys beautifully animated you snaps. Okay let me see. Let me say the sale salo synopsis. Okay and this is rina from wikipedia. Okay so it says in okinawa. A group of hard-core skaters participate in a secret no-holds-barred competition after midnight known as s racing. Each other on skateboards down. A winding road carved out of an abandoned mine and occasionally for me rivalries. Ricky is a high school sophomore and hardcore skater and he takes a transfer student langer to s one. Night ends up pulling him into the world skateboard so rakipi on the first episode. He ends up against this one guy. Who's like been winning all these little competitions and i guess the guy he does dirty moves when he's racing so ricky is breaking his arm when it comes to their school language actually from canada. He's canadian yeah. It's canadian canadia canadian lang from canadian. And he is actually a snowboarder. Guess he hasn't. He hasn't snowboarded since his father passed away when he goes to this competition. Ricky works at a skateboard shop right. And he's supposed to bring a brand new skateboard to the skateboard competition for somebody but he accidentally grabbed the wrong when he granted is really fucked up the he had been skateboarding on and had made himself. The guy told him. Hey since you bring my fucking skateboard you gotta skate in the fucking competition. He's like brahma broken. So langa says you know what i think. I can do this so he gets on a skateboard. He dug tastes his feet to the skateboard. Because you know on snowboards you know your feet are locked in. So he's like standing there and the guy that was raising him just totally just. He's already like halfway down the track. Everybody's like broke the fuck you doing. So when he finally gets onto the track langas bus and ass langas like skating off walls and shit he. He's literally handling his skateboard like a snowboard. The animation is disgusting. I'm just like what the fuck this is beautiful. I highly recommend this anime. I watched it also watched that Surfing enemy haiti trash. Oh oh the wave bashes some bullshit. This is born like watch both like both episodes. I watched both. I watch both of them and scaping. Infinity has three episodes out now and the other one has to. Now it may pick up on not gonna go back to it. Because i don't like it. I think that it is manufactured for the sports raven out and making so many sports now and that shit is basically. It's food joshi all like free. Yeah so it's like cute boys and the water cool but no substance but skate the infinity. That's poppy ashes popping. I'm gonna watch. It's good i. I think our really enjoy like kick push and the thing about language is even though he took to the skateboard really fast. I think that Being on the skateboard gave him that thrill they're being on the snowboard and he hasn't done the snowboard since his father passed so him. Yes oh so him. Being on the skateboard he's just like yo. This is what i've been needing you know. But he's scared because your feet are locked in when you snowboard. When you say you're feeling like you probably going bush and he busted his ass like like. There was even this scene where this girl was walking by. She was reading this article about him and she was like they were saying he has a ice blue hair and she was walking the part where him in in rocky was practicing and she was like is that him and he likes us totally bus. His mother organiz. She's like oh no that can't be him but it's totally him. Once his speed is tape he got it. You know what i'm saying. He got it but he he is. He literally says it's scary like i. This is the ghetto. It's gary this. The ghetto guetta. Strapping ghetto ghetto. How you supposed to control yourself you trying to die you like. Don't know ankle. Stay ahead but my life But my life bet. But he's he's on his way. Like i buy like the third episode. He gonna have it down right fair and it's funny is fook. It's funniest and i noticed. Animated by map no animated by bones. It did Brotherhood bounds it's people do brotherhood and solita isn't animation is beautiful slapping. Oh also my eric damian. Yeah they do. Farmers know that no production. Who did joe. Yeah you're right She slaps though y'all got to get into dashes fair and it's on so you can you can get on board. That's an hour and thirty minutes. Not even not even. It's an hour says like twenty two twenty two minutes. Oh yeah it's pretty good. I liked the she's good. I like that i I started watching a juju. Did you can't say shit to save my life. Jiu jitsu kayce and essay right. Ju jitsu qeissan get there right. One day i started watching that again. I mean i really didn't get far. So where are you out like fourth episode. You you gotta get in there. Yeah i gotta get in there. So that's the one. I'm really trying to get caught up on an. I'm really trying to make it a priority to watch wonder egg priority. Yo that's my slap for the we want to watch that okay. Good it's great. What's this week you know. It's just that yeah damn denver mind cause like okay. Let me see. I'm just playing catch up right now. What is episode for what happens. That was so forward. You guys plus. It's a okay no okay. It was a one he eats. The thing you saw episode to. you can spiting. He's fighting and they're telling him you know we're probably gonna kill you. Episode episode three though is when a girl show the april four is when. Oh that's when they go to the Prison yeah yeah. Ok that our you Oh i'm so behind you just about to watch it girl. She get real that episode. Yeah i was like ooh yeah. Anyway i slap a week is called wonder egg priority. Not the synopsis is. When are your synopsis. Is while on midnight stroll girl name i picks up an egg. A voice cokes. Coaxes her and tells her if you want to change the future you only need choose now and eight gives sends it to a gotcha machine to go. Pick up an egg. She wakes up the next day. Was that a dream. But she still has the egg it she fucks up yet and so like a one. A land situation is lake dream or whatnot but she still has the story. Sorts of said starts off like you really wondering what is happening or you see girl like doing weird mystical fast. Fancy things does not really even a premised to it It's like she's doing stuff. It's very dreamlike She wakes up the next day she stays at home. For a reason you find out during episode. She goes back to sleep. No sorry she doesn't really go back to sleep. It's really unclear what happens to her as she walks outside. But then she steps into a different world where like it's not really a world anymore. You've seen paprika. I wanna watch peaks it you've seen Miyoko magika so she. It's it's avenue washy. Yeah lay that where she steps into lake. She cited door What is a different worlds really dreaming and the voice tells you got a crack this egg move on she but she fucks up. She drops egg and egg cracks in and out pops out a girl in a school uniform And she's like well. What the fuck is this girl's like yoga. Run as creature start. Chasing after rule like weird little chucky little fuckers like with knives dot stabbing. Ooh i know is going to get like that. This happens like ten minutes in. She has good. I don't know if i want us for the for you but now it's a watches hit. I really wanna tell you like what type of show is funny. Sounds funny. it's not funny. It was like super serious and all of this. The whole show is a metaphor of how young deal with trauma in when they're getting abused by adults. Ooh and like the world around them. Oh that's deep shit. I'm so i'm weedy. I but the first episode. You definitely tell whatever show. It is and i'm really excited to like continue on because the next episode shows are economically black girl even if she's mixed but it shows her mother with like tight foresee hair and a headband. Which is like sue. Just about a pitcher and it's not donut. Lips slow does another checkmark for good representation. So i recommend not like really looking up anything about the show because the surprise is really good. It's a little bit horror and a little bit body. orange is give it to me. Are we going aro- ohio. Okay me. he's hatha. Make sure nine japanese. It's hor for the sake of like a purpose and themes the monsters mean something. The monsters have a reasonable like looking this way and a horrifying because this is what this is. What it means is what it looks like to these girls who experienced in these monsters. Okay waiting episodes. In the how. I think the next one comes out either tomorrow monday. Where can we watch it on. You can watch it on front of megyn facts are. I'm to rewatch guidry got to know y'all got. I gotta do monetary too. Because like. i don't like it. And my roommate loves monetary. We talk about this like once twice a year.

GSMC SciFi Podcast Episode 278: The Boys Season 2 Episode 7 - Family Ties

"Golden state media concepts side podcast. Together we dive into the world science fiction from episode of star trek star wars to the resident evil. All the science fiction movie from the factory. Marvel or dc media concepts sifi pub. Cats you'll never get science stations the same way again. Thanks for tuning in. Jesus and seaside by podcasts brought to you by the gmc podcast network. I'm your host. Alex as i am recording this a little bit earlier than normal it is currently friday and we are still waiting out the election results. Which is normal. We're all trying something different this year with covid nineteen happening and all of these states that don't normally do as many male and votes are having to figure that out on their own. So we'll have a president and by the time this airs on monday. I mean technically. They're still the sitting president until inauguration day. But it's the not knowing that drives you crazy so hopefully by the time. You're listening to this on monday. We will have a president as of right now. We're going to talk about the boys season. Two episode seven. Interestingly enough there are a lot of heavy political themes in this episode. She said surprising. No one because that's what this show is about. So i did get to watch episodes seven and eight this past week. I pretty much bench them. Right after i finished the last podcast episode on number. Six for you guys so we're going to pick up with seven and. Im stoked to talk you guys about these mirror. Concepts of keep america safe again. How people use political rhetoric and different phrasing to help influence people's decisions and the way that people frame the world around them and we're also going to talk about having a loss of meaning searching for meaning in one's life. And what you do when you feel that you've lost it stick around to the end and we will talk about where we find. Lamplight her as well in this brand new world where he's kind of working with the good guys but first. Let's start with that. Alex jones style commentary at the beginning of the show. There is essentially a montage at the beginning of this episode. that i thought was masterfully. Done and it shows a man who lives in his mom's basement this white dude with a beard. He's living in his mom's basement and he's listening to alex jones style commentaries every day instead of music in this montage. It's just what sounds like. Alex jones and then also fox news in the background. And you can hear this inundation of propaganda news and also the gradual language shifts that storm front in particular starts taking. We knew that they were intentionally trying to change the language and mold it around their agenda earlier in the season when they were talking about the difference between supervillain and super terrorist and having these groups come in and meet about it these marketing and advertising focus groups. That's lowered but i was looking for focus. Groups even been apart of some of those when i was in college but they essentially get a random group of people together or people who match their target demographics and ask them open ended questions about how the language use or the product or the packaging makes somebody feel and then they base their target for their language or their product. And take it from there. They do that. Accordingly so re saw from that that they were changing the language slightly making sure that they pay attention to terms like super terrorists or super villain and it reminds me of hillary clinton's use of the term superpredators when she was the first lady back in nineteen ninety six and was referencing. The nineteen ninety four crime bill. So the type of that we use really does matter so i know in the media. Allot people argue back and forth about the importance of labels and what we call different things and that can be anything from identity and using pronouns that people prefer to going through and choosing words for marketing like super predator. But in this case it's also a political tool. It's not just something that shampoo companies might do to make sure they're developing new product. That people will like people. Also do this for the type of language you use. When i was in college. I took linguistic anthropology and one of our assignments with to analyze the type of language that was used for any product of our choosing and it was very illuminating as i watched the other students present their topics on there absolutely random interest because they he said we can do it about anything so long as it had a linguistic anthropology and product naming approach and it was wild that across all of these different products and varied interests that they still had that intentional type of marketing. Going on. we've mostly seen it in the boys in the form of having these pr groups. There's been a big focus on things. Like acknowledge apologize action but this is also a really important theme that they've been under weaving through here and this montage really brings everything together of what they were saying. There's a scene in this one and a number eight that really bring that home so they start using language like make america safe again and they're not even be very thinly veiled with these metaphors they're being super transparent about it at this point even more so in your face than the boys usually is and this montage mostly consists of storm front and homeland or speaking to the people but primarily storm front. And they're going around and doing these shows together. Essentially these public appearances as a couple representing patriotic americans and saying things like keep america safe again and letting folks know that anyone who comes over here who is foreign could be a super terrorist that all these super terrorists are not created here on american soil. No those are super heroes super villains. Come from there. And so that's making people. Think of foreigners king super terrorists. It's causing them to have a bad association with it just like when a lot of folks use the term refugee now in almost a derogatory way. And that's very similar to the agenda that they seem to be going for here in the boys. Indeed it is art imitating life. So we're talking about people saying things like make america safe again versus make america great again and conflicting foreigners with threats whether that be as villains and predators or as being here to take your jobs or get things they you don't have access to. It's the same principles and that's why that kind of ideology can be dangerous it radicalized people and works them up. And that's what we see happen with the sky. Living at home with his mom where he starts getting paranoid about people who don't look like him up to the point that he shoots a convenience store clerk who's a man of color because he thinks of him as being a foreigner and therefore a threat and in this instance they're thinking of him as being a super terrorist or a super villain but it's no different than when people in the us with think that people from overseas who were of middle eastern descent were terrorist just because they were here or when we were at war with japan in world war two and we put people into concentration camps because they were japanese and we were afraid they were spies. This is american history. America has never been safe for everyone just as it's never been great for everyone. We also see lighter interviewing with the equivalent of aoc alexandria ocasio. Cortez in malary's home while the boys are getting cleaned up because pretty much once again they are. You know covered in gore. and nick. Like not everyone but huey in particular. He's a little squishy In regards to their whole party. Huey needs to put more points in two. I don't know he needs more armor. Hugh we need something to help him. Be less squishy. I don't know how he can get more hit points. Maybe he just has toughened up. I don't know maybe he'll be like daniel jackson from stargate s one and he'll start out all geeky and then. Just get really buff by the end. Probably not and. I'm okay with that too but poor huey i feel bad for him he just. He has the lowest hp literally anyone on her team. He's our agent moulder. He's on a quest. He just steadily gets his butt kicked. I picked moulder. Instead of captain kirk for that because really i mean captain kirk is also kind of a sex symbol in some ways and huey is just kind of awkward and super sweet though and his heart is pretty much in the right place and in that way. I think that he is a lot like moulder. He's closer to m- older than he really is. To captain kirk although captain kirk is generally the obvious. Go to when you're a hero. Who get your butt handed to you a lot but really the most surprising part of this is that we see lamp lighter in grace. Malary's house and lamp. Lider has been a big unseen evil for a lot of the show up until now and now that we do see him in the same room as mallory. It is a little bit jarring. But for mallory lamplight or being willing to testify for congress is a fair trade off for allowing him to live despite what he's done specifically to her. So far mallory. She's still keeping the big picture agenda in mind. She's the one who brought everyone together to try to take down. Bought not just the seven but vaud itself and figure out what they're up to so she's standing by that right now and even though she is probably seething in struggling not to kill him right now it turns out that frenchy made a good argument for her and she's willing to let him live to testify so that tells us a lot about malary's restraint as a person and also her ability to put aside her own feelings when it comes to thinking about other people and the greater good and the greater justice as well we also see any meeting her mom in a coffee shop to hash things out in episode six. We saw the storm front was kind of pushing for her mom to hash things out with anne and we don't specifically know entirely why we just know that storm front was really messing with her but his mom hits her up and we see your meet her in this coffee shop to start hashing out and reveals. They annie's really so mad at her mom because anne's faith was so closely tied to her superpowers. And that's because her mom taught her that her powers were bestowed upon her by god. She thought that she was blessed. So this is not just finding out her. Mom has lied to her. It's a crisis of faith in everything she's ever been everything she's ever believed and on top of that. Her experience with fought has been super negative and she says you know what we do means nothing. It's all for money and so. She's crushed spiritually. Just all around. She's realized that everything she's ever believed in her life everything she's ever worked for has all been ally or at best facade and so her mom says honey. You're so upset. Just come away with me for a while. i already cleared it with bought. And unfortunately she really has already cleared it with ashley and right at that point black noir find them despite the fact that starlight removed her tracker in the last episode. I don't remember if i mentioned that part or not but that was a really gory scene. That was also a lot of fun because you know any can heal back really quickly but frenchy was also disturbed by the tool. He had to use to get through her body. And i think it was like some kind of dream or something like a diamond tipped dreamt tool that he was using to try to slice. Open her body. Because you know they're pretty much bulletproof so this was very difficult for him to get all the way into her body to get it out so there was a lot of waiting and nothing happening and then all of a sudden he's like splashed through into her neck and shoulder area but they managed to pull out that tracker but unfortunately since her mom told her that she's already talked vaatainen. Cleared it with them for her to come away with them. Black noir has found them. Her mom lead them straight to her. So that's a problem and it ends up in being a a pretty brutal fight. but ultimately they're definitely taken. I don't know anything much about blackmar really. I don't know if any of y'all do. I haven't read the comics yet. Because i'm really enjoying where the shows taking it and i don't wanna mess with what i know is going to happen. It's very rare for me to watch something that was originally a comic and it be on television and have not already read the comic. So i'm kind of enjoying this for what it is right now but i will definitely be reading garth. Innocence work on this sometime in the future. We're gonna go on a quick break and when we come back. We're going to catch up with billy starlight and lamp lighter stay tuned to find out what movies to go. See and check out the gmc movie podcast. It's your ticket to the latest movies whether it's a new blockbuster event romantic comedy or action flick. This show has got it all covered. They talk some what to go. See now don't bother. What's hot on netflix. And everything in between that's g. Podcast dot com. Backslash movie dash podcast. When it's all about the movies it has to be this new show. Don't forget to like them on facebook and follow them on twitter visit. Gs mc podcast dot com for more info. Just don't know come back to the break. We were talking about radicalization prompted by intentional gradual language changes and also how annie's having a crisis of faith and everything she's believed in right win blackmore kidnaps her and her mother so this episode is largely about family. It's about grace malary's family and billy's family and anne's family. A lot of the boys is about found family but we're learning more about their individual families who they are outside of each other and so we're going to pick up with billy's mom billy's mom calls and says that she's in town in new york and tells him that his father's dead so while billy told his aunt last time that he had no interest in talking to his parents or seeing them because his mother's come all the way across the pond to see him and his father is dead. Billy decides to go and meet with her and when he does he finds out that his father is actually not dead but rather his mom has lied to him and that his father is just out on the balcony at the hotel and when billy sees him he threatens to kill him if he takes a step closer to him but he does grant his father two minutes to talk so his dad tries to reminisce about taking him to a cricket game but billy cuts him short and pretty much says you know you beat the crap out of us as a kid or kids him and his brother lenny. And i don't wanna hear it. I was happy about the cricket games because one of the few times you weren't like beating the crap out of us so we can see that. Billy had a rough childhood and that helps inform us about how he became the way he became but also about how important becca is for his soul and mediating the rougher parts of him but at the point when billy stabbed says that he didn't have a chance to say goodbye to his son. Lenny billy blames his father for that death but his dad says linney was too soft and so we learned that. Billy's dad beat the crap out of both them for years. And that eventually lenny. Committed suicide and billy's dad accuses billy of being the person who abandoned lenny. And that's the point where billy absolutely loses it and almost strangles his father to death and he seems pretty justified in in my opinion. His dad is unapologetic about any of this and is still blaming the victims for everything. That's happened so billy is absolutely fed up and he leaves after that point. His mother is tried for reconciliation. And billy is just not having it. He doesn't care what his dad's dying in. Why should he. The guy beat the crap out of him and his brother to the point that his brother kills himself. And you can see. The billy had a soft spot for lenny and that huey a lot like lenny. As they've outright said in many ways 'em perhaps. That's why billy bothers to apologize to huey after he hits him really hard knocks him to the ground and tells him that he'll kill him if he ever comes between him and becca again but he also understands. We're billy's coming from in that perspective. And so i think that in a way it still makes. Billy feel seen and huey understands where he's coming from so even though the physical violence isn't really necessary or o k between friends in their fictional relationship. This is something that works for them and it's interesting how they're exploring that dynamic through these other with his dad. So we learn more about huey learning a little bit. More about what lenny experienced and that tells us about. Why butcher has such a soft spot for huey in the meantime though starlight is waking up in a dark green lit box and she can't get enough energy to really use her powers. Sir remember we've seen in previous episodes that she's literally drawing upon energy from light sources or from energy sources like the car. They were drawing from the battery and stuff in order to cauterize wounds end. So they're keeping her in an area that doesn't really have enough energy for her to wheeled her powers so she can't blasts through the door or anything because she can't tap into the energy it's kind of like depriving superman of the sun for i guess a crazy longtime. I don't know how long you'd have to keep superman down for that to be honest. But they're not really using kryptonite on her to weaken her but the green light did look really interesting in that aspect to me. Remember the reasons. Superman has powers on earth. But the people on krypton didn't really have them is because on krypton. I think there's some was read. Write and ours is yellow and so the yellow sun as the light. That's really strengthening superman. And what's allowing him to have these powers or activating these powers inside of him so there's some interesting parallels there and i thought it was interesting. They chose the color green. Because when you look at light properties and weather green or red light has more energy you find that. Green is kind of right in the middle. It's not even the lowest amount of energy that they could have given to her right so uv light as at the lower end of that wavelength spectrum but the shorter the wavelength. The more energy that they carry so violent has a lot of energy and right. But then we think about roy. G biv and the green lantern corps the lantern corps general and see read on the far of that. So wouldn't they be putting her in a room with red light. Maybe rather than green. If she's just drawing it from the energy if she was able to draw it from a car then i would imagine it would be more of the energy component than literally the light. But i'm not quite sure. So i'm going to have to look into that. Some more to see why they would have may be selected green for the limited amount of light in there is it to draw some type of correlation between her and superman. Or what exactly is going on there. It's not quite making sense with the lantern corps or the wavelengths but maybe she gets her powers from a specific wavelength maybe she's limited by the frequency or the wavelengths and anything above the threshold of blue perhaps is going to be too low of a frequency and too long of a wavelength. I'm not entirely sure. Maybe green was a random choice. But i like to think. They selected it for a reason. And i can't wait to find out whether that was just artistic in nature or whether there are some concrete boundaries to her powers based on the light spectrum meanwhile we see the lamp. Lighter is spending what he believes to be his last few hours watching soup parody porn. He firmly believes that he is going to die at the hearing that someone from bought is going to execute him so he isn't really that interested in doing anything else and he tells hugh as much like what else would you have me do right now. Miles will do this. But he also explains his background to huey wallaby sit there on the couch and he uncomfortably allows him to watch all this parody porn and we find out that lamp lighter little house on fire at age four and accidentally burnt the whole house down and that his dad was so proud of him for having done that. And you can see that. That has really messed with him. As a person and this whole concept of his life has him feeling like the cold in the homeland lander parody porno that they are watching and he also reveals a bit of himself to lamp lighter and that he says he watched his dad stagnate after his mom was gone and huey thought that he'd found his purpose in that though and he says that that makes him a cock more than anything and attempt to cheer lamp lighter but lampeter tells him that he's worse than that. He's a cook fluffer so he's trying to make him feel better but lamp. Lender is still lamp lighter and is being a douche about that but we can't really take continuing to watch this parody porn with him anymore so he flips the channel and finds the televised press conference rally that storm front and home lander or and the porn has just gone too far for hueys tastes so he settles on this and when they're watching it they see that anne has been taken by bought and lamp lighter casually says they probably have her in forty two d and we find out. That's the tower. Prison at vaughn. So he asks him to help him sneak into save her and lamp lighter agrees to do that to no longer be the cook. It is a true pep talk in the style. That only the boys can really get away with their really nailing. Their particular style and things are still unexpected but also hilarious in the outcomes. They just talk like bros. And i kinda love that about them. It's it's very funny and different from a lot of other superheroes conversations so when we talk about storm fry and homeland or being on television though they are essentially a public white power couple now. So they're up there. Talking about how america used to be an using derogatory terms like snowflakes and s j ws. And they're using those to make. It seem that people who care about justice are weak or june that they're naive and therefore somewhat stupid in this approach that their pursuit of liberty and justice for all and all really meaning all is foolish and useless so by talking about it in a derogatory way and in a derisive way they don't actually have to come out and say any of those things. It's implied with the connotations in the word choices that they use and also in their tone but they also outright say things like has there ever been any one in history more persecuted for trying to protect their own so that's a rallying cry for people who are making an us against them. Statement day are creating this dichotomy of you know you're either with us or you're against us you're with us or you're with them and it's creating further divisiveness just like completing foreigners with being super villains or villains or terrorists in general whether that's in the show or in the life that this art is imitating so they're holding these rallies and they're using this as a rallying cry for more compound the and more soups. So home lander and storm front are wanting to make more soups and get more compound v. Now that the cat is out of the bag about compound the creating soups to begin with. So they can stoke those concerns about immigration by continuing to conflate emigrants with super terrorist and using this absolutist language and they publicly decry starlight as being a mole. And let the audience know. She's been apprehended. So they build up to that reveal so that they can really embody her as being this. S j w and turning people against folks who pursue social justice with starlight being their figurehead. And so now. They've really riled people up and gotten them to move over to their side of it. So before stars light has been a really upstanding member of the seven for the entire time. She's been there. She's been super real with folks with her talk at believe expo and she tests really well with people but also at the end of the day. People are just getting angry. They're hearing what they want to hear from storm front and home lander and so they are becoming more radicalized and near just believing this newcomer even though these other folks have shown them who they are before but like storm front said before. You don't need all of these people to love you. You only need five million people super angry and now we're really seeing what she meant when she said that starlight was going to be super useful for her starlight is now the symbol of this threat to as certain sacked of american people. She is an ally to people who are disenfranchised. And that's not something. That white nationalist really want so. This is really two birds one stone for storm front. She gets a takedown starlight primary opposition and also gets to use her as a well known symbol of justice to more her gross radicalized. White nationalist agenda around and to now have a symbol that people can look at and make this concept less abstract and more concrete. Imprisoning starlight is showing white nationalist that the world that they desire can be achieved and that it's theirs for the taking if only they'll reach out and that's very similar to how donald trump has vilnai's a lot of people over the years from immigrants to political opponents and sometimes political opponents who are immigrants. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back. We're going to talk about storm fronts. Philosophy that common enemy rouses the base.

We were talking about talent and storm front or essentially a white power couple kind of like what donald trump wishes. He could be with malania except for the part where melania seems to also hate him. I don't know if that means she's also a good person. I'm not going that far but I am saying that the gift sets of her swatting way his hand. Do bring me a lot of giggles so storm front homeland or are trying to do this or are succeeding in an area where donald trump has not been able to but they're trying to rally the base and that's really what she's doing by incarcerating starlight. She has put s. J ws and also immigrants in this light of being terrorists or being terrorist sympathizers and she outright says a common enemy rouses the base. So if you think back on american history we can see that. That has happened a lot over the years. Think about everyone's reactions post nine. Eleven and how america came together as a country to hate people from the middle east. That doesn't necessarily mean that this is a good thing but she is right and that a common enemy will rouse the base and the fact is she's already radicalized people to do things like shoot the convenience store clerk that we saw at the very beginning of the episode and we also see that storm front is looking kind of nostalgic when she sees a baby and she starts talking about her daughter a little bit so homeland decides to bring storm front to meet back and ryan which is bad news bears. So beca and ryan are playing outside with legos. Kind of adorable and homeland apologizes to ryan. Saying you know. Hey buddy. I went too far last time and i won't ever do that again. And then he introduces storm front as his girlfriend so this is echoing that pr theme that. We've seen a lot in particular this season of acknowledgment apology. An action slash redirection. So he's you know saying hey. I went too far last time. I won't do that again. Acknowledgement apology and they're going. Hey this is my girlfriend and that is then redirection for it. So he says we'll be round more and he wants them to be a family but he doesn't specify who he wants to be a family. And so i'm really starting to feel like becca. Life might be in danger because they may feel that now that he has storm front in his life. He can piece together the perfect family. He's gonna patchwork quilt his way into the family that he never had. And this might be the push that becca really needs to seek. Billy's hope and to get him to know ryan so that we can get that plotline to converge. Meanwhile poor elena is really upset about the video that she saw of may and homeland or on the flight that went down and homeland her telling may they ended leave everyone behind because they didn't want bad press from having saved only a few people and letting everyone else die. So dead men tell. No tales and elena is really upset about it. May've is too you can tell she's distraught in video but elena is still new to this. That wasn't the first terrible thing that homeland ever made. Maeve do so. Mavis learned gradually how to live with these things. But elena hasn't this is the first that she's really finding out that superheroes are depraved and more villainous than they are heroes says she sells may go outta town her sisters for a while to process the realizations of the horrors that may has lived through and the atrocity. She's been forced to commit even if she knows that may've didn't really have much choice because she feared for her life. She was coerced into doing those things. Just like starlight was coerced into sexual assault by the deep. At the very beginning there are some strong themes of coercion in the show. Y'all even in places of power. Particularly when wielded against women and elena says she just needs some time but may is really upset and she flips the table like hardcore. Jesus in the temple flipped table and may feels like she's being punished for revealing the real her. Because elaine has asked to see this part of her all along and elena does genuinely apologize. She's is distraught about this as mavis but in a different way and she almost looks at maeve with pity in her eyes. Like she's hurt that someone she loves has had to go through this and to do these things and she probably also feels some guilt from being angry at maeve for so many years for staying closed off. It's very different for her. And seeing that it really was for her own protection. And that may've wasn't kidding about that at any point she wasn't even overstating it if anything she may have been understating it. This really results in ashley showing up to vault room at eventually. And finding her in bed with some rando and elena gone and maeve is just gone. Full hedonistic maeve. She's just vaping and hanging with this guy and tells her that has gone and ashley's really upset about this she's like oh no our pr campaign. They don't wanna bisexual. They wanna lesbian. And all this other stuff and maeve is just out of fs to give. Y'all and she tells ashley to be a human being for once in her life. And we actually do see ashley soften and she also seems to genuinely apologize before she leaves samedan getting a lot of genuine apologies right now. A lot of apologising going on. But that doesn't necessarily make what she's going through any easier. There is a lot happening in this episode. Like most of the episodes of this season and we see a couple of visits to joan up the doctor who was responsible for hollander. So mallory and 'em go together to jona to talk about sage grove and to try to get him to testify in congress but they can't get him tired or talk to them or testify and jona outright tells mallory that she's the last person who should ask him for that specific favor seeing as she lost her whole family and he has a daughter she ends up agreeing with jona and outside. She tells m that he should also just leave with his family. The family's the most important thing and that she will even arrange for passage for him and his family to go to nicaragua and escape all of this that he should cherish the time that he has with them. M m's kind of stunned but he's also not willing to take her up on that until after they've achieved their goal kimiko has also come back over to the light side after her brief foray into being a mercenary. And she's helping frenchie watch over the afc characters house victoria newman's house and they bond over watching with her daughter and they talk a little bit about how frenching kimiko both used to do that with their moms and frenchy says that there's a saying he's heard and that's that you die twice once when you stop breathing and again when someone utters your name for the last time. And he says he'd like to learn how to communicate with kimiko so she can tell him about her family and say their names to keep them alive in that way and so she starts teaching him her personal method of sign language. It super adorable. You guys i loved it but we also get to see a train. Gifting the deep a goldfish. So that's weird but it's an apology for being mean to him in the past it's so strange gift Considering the deep can talk to fish so it's kind of like he just gave him a friend and car serrated in a little tiny water box in my opinion but it is what it is. I suppose the deep seems to really like the gift and is excited. He's like hey he knows my name and they seem to put their previous beef behind them. We also see garon visionics character coming by to say. He has a meeting with mr edgar. The next week and garamba as the head of the church says the eagle the archer claims. The program failed him and now he's toxic figure that no one is allowed to communicate with anymore and the deep decides to issue or shun his old friend and a train who is very new to the church starts feeling really uneasy and it's very similar to a lot of different religious groups or spiritual groups that have these roles. You see shunning in groups like the amish you also see it in the church of scientology which is mostly what this is meant to mirror but also in colts when i've come across in my actual wife shunning is really big in colt circles weather. It's scientology or christian any type if you are not with the group you are against the group and you cannot voice any dissatisfaction with them and if you see this early enough you can really recognize that sometimes as it causing an uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach and that's what's going on with a train. This interaction is the first one. That's really seemed off for him and he is now pretty skeptical and indeed his guts right. It turns out that eagle. The archer was essentially excommunicated from the church because he refused to denounce. I think it was his family. There was someone that he cared about that he refused to denounce and they decided he was quote toxic figure unquote and would no longer associate with him. The people in the church are not even able to associate with him privately. That is against all of the rules. They don't want that outsider perspective or a negative perspective influencing them at all. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back. We're going to wrap up this episode with ryan's motion capture lego movies as well as billy's owned visit to jona and the outcome of lamp lighter and huey breaking into dot state. You tv has changed over time. Streaming has been come the new norm. That's why golden state media concepts television. Podcast dives headfirst to the world of cord cutting wants to be on the lube of. What's hot and netflix. Or if it's not a preference what about who we've got you covered. Join us as we fill the blind and talk about movies to street and what show. You should be vigilant. This is golden state media concepts television. Podcast well or this braced we were talking about. How made is coping swith elena needing some space to work through realizing that her superhero girlfriend has had to commit atrocities over the years. We also have a train being skeptical about the church now that they've asked them to shun people and kimiko and frenchy ding and starting to learn how to communicate more effectively together. Now we're going to pick up with ryan so as we discussed earlier. Storm front was reminiscing about her granddaughter. I believe is who it was and how you know her granddaughters super old now and that makes her really sad and she misses babies so home lander wants to share his child with her and takes her to go see ryan and becca and ryan is super proud to show his motion capture lego movies to homeland and storm front and the women seem proud both becca and storm front genuinely seem kinda proud of him but homeland or has to absolutely fake it and then they find out that you know he's in movies too and ryan's never heard of this before he's not seen the suit movies becca doesn't want him to know about those but it turns out that homeland or has been in movies including brightest day and darkest night so just like green lantern that one gave me a good guffaw won't lie to you so we have that going on there's that little bit of a joke in there but then storm front starts undermining bekker's authority with roles for ryan's life and it's very forceful very early on. She's playing her hand really early. And bekker's really uncomfortable with this so beca demands to speak to homeland or outside. And they have a very frank discussion and it seems that home under genuinely doesn't want his son to be raised the way that he was because homeland or knows that he's messed up as a person and he knows that it will mess ryan up. He knows how he feels on the inside and he doesn't want his kid to feel that same way so beca agrees that the one thing they have in common is they both want. What's best for ryan and she begs homeland or to let her keep ryan there and he acquiesces to that. While that's going on. Billy is paying his own visit to jona so mallory an m were not able to get anything out of jona. Got a promise to testify and not even any real words about homeland or out. But billy is a bit different than both of them so he goes in there and starts talking to joanna about home lander and jona reveals that when homeland her was five to six years old. He was very sweet little boy and he was very big into the old american concepts of you know like davy crockett and roosevelt and being around playing in the forest and the concept of manifest destiny. But that joanna wanted him to be the strongest man in the world and so he started molding him at that age and little homeland didn't even want to be the strongest man in the world. Joan did that for himself for his own scientific creation. He created this monster. And so billy threatens to kill jonas entire family for what he's responsible for doing to billy and bekka unless joan helps him and this hard line approach in jonas age makes him a lot more pliable instead of exploiting that weakness for his daughter. Mallory and m sympathized with it and left. But billy doesn't really have family to protect right now. He's not able to get to his family necessarily. He's a little bit less lose. And he plays hardball so in this conversation though. I think one of the most important points is that billy seems to realize that jona is the one who is fully responsible for homeland or he is ultimately the person who is responsible for homeland lander and much like billy's own relationship with his abusive toxic father. This father figure moulded into who he is today. And that just brings us back around to my assertion that we've discussed in the past that ultimately billy and homeland lander are super different. They're both pretty much lone wolves. They had very difficult childhoods and have lived through some things that other people should never have to. No one should ever have to but it shape them into the people that they are today and hearing that little five to six year old homeland or was sweet and didn't even want to be the person that they made him into gives. Billy some perspective. Don't get me wrong. I'm fairly confident that he still hates homeland or with every bone in his body for him. The reason for it doesn't necessarily give an excuse or anything. For why homeland lender is the way he is but it does him some perspective and helps billy to redirect some of his anger at least temporarily to achieve his goals at the same time lamp lighter and here we are breaking into vaunt and lamp ladders. Prints are still on file somehow. So i suppose they just haven't recognizing the chaos of sage grove that they need to revoke them a storm front hasn't picked up on it yet or anything. So he still in the system and he's able to break in avant so when that happens. Lamp lighter takes huey into the conference room rather than starlight cell. And he's been there involved before a couple times and so he's like. Hey this is. I don't know where the cell is but This is definitely. The conference room was up and went. Potter's like all monotone sad because they were placed his statue with one of starlight and lamp lider strangely says that he'd hoped to do this in front of his statue. That's all he had wanted. And then he self emily's yeah. He sent himself on fire so that's probably why they showed us the guy vomiting acid and then getting it on himself earlier so that we can see that they can sometimes harm themselves with their own powers and lamp lighter. Does that right now. To set himself on fire and kill himself and he can't do anything other than stam. Erin just watch in horror. Huey just stays there and watches lamp lighter burn until the sprinklers. Put them out. And then he brutally chops lamp lighters hand off of his body so that he can use his prints to get back out a lot so he spent enough time with billy they. He's picked up how to commit this carnage and how to think forward in these ways. He's failing forward and is still going to try to find forty two d that prison tower in there. He's made it this far. He's been in that secret tunnel system with lamp lydersen. Maybe he can figure it out. I was a little concerned that lamp lighters prince might have been burned off. I don't know how hot lamp lighters fire burns but know he's dead so you know we'll find out when he tries to use it on the wall but while he's doing this. The princess breaks herself out of the detention center. Yes i am talking about. Star wars star late herself breaks out of the detention center herself. Using the power from all the sprinkler alarms going off to below the door only to be confronted and tackled through concrete wall by blackmore. So just as he is strangling her to death. May sneaks up behind him. Tears his mask up and force feeds him and all joy because he has a tree nut allergy and then kicks his epi pen away from him. That made me laugh really hard because it looked really ridiculous to starlight to see may just come up behind him and smash and almond joy in his mouth. What are you doing. And she's like he has a trina allergy. So i'm going to kill him and so that's his vulnerability. Different people have different vulnerabilities. I suppose and that one is blackmore's. It hadn't occurred to me that superheroes might still have allergies. But interestingly enough they do at least in the case of blackmore we don't know much about him but we do know. He has a trina allergy. And it's pretty hilarious. The way that may just kicked his epi pen away from him in order to really take him down considering how awesome he is at fighting so starlight then tries to get made to come with her but may declines. She's not quite ready to do that. And huey is able to use lamp. Lighters severed hand to find where he thought any would be only to find her mom there instead. But they're reunited with anne in the hallways and have a weirdly long moment talking before they realized they need to really go. I don't understand why they spent so long talking Considering all the fire alarms and stuff going on so people were on high alert and sure. Chaos can be a good distraction but only for so long and once they find that. Blackmore is on the ground incapacitated. They're gonna know something's really wrong and probably start checking for a jailbreak. We also see a lot of the branding in this episode is pretty funny. They have the constant fizzy waters being shown and they also have becca pulling a queen. Maeve brave maeve lasagna. Dinner out of the oven and that's part of her new. Lgbt plotline that ashley in them are putting forth in the media and so it really shows us that they are not above exploiting our marketing. Absolutely anything and really again. It's art imitating life. I don't know if you guys have seen all the mcdonald's specials lately from different folks who sang. And i don't even know what all a water them do. Don't recognize all the names on the board. Not that hit. I'm sorry guys but they have had like the jay baldwin burger combo thing and things like that they started putting a lot of skins like that on fortnight and everything for these people and putting their dances up and stuff so they will and monetize in any way possible. And we're seeing that with this brave maeve lasagna too. So when becca goes to pull this out of the oven call ryan for dinner. He doesn't come and so she finds him outside with homeland lander and storm front and it turns out that they've flown him up in shown him the surrounding area. He lives in in that compound and told him that becca had lied to him and now ryan hates her and he leaves with storm front and homeland or they take off up into the air flying. There's nothing becca can do. And becca said you know he needs his mother and storm front assures her as they are about fly off that he'll have a mother so it turns out that homeland or didn't really acquiesce. He just manipulated her and now becca is trapped in that compound and she can't get out to save her son. We get to see another brief reconciliation between billy and his mother in the same coffee shop that anne and her mom were in earlier for their reconciliation. And you see that. His mom misses him and billy seems to genuinely love his mom but he's like look. You decided to stay with him. And that's on you so i don't want any part of that. I don't wanna see him. I don't wanna talk about him or any of that. But i i love you. Essentially is how the conversation goes not quite that open. But i mean he does outranked call his dad the c word and his mom says it right back to him that yeah that is one and i enjoy that scene to. It's very raw and honest and very true to life for some adult conversations about child abuse and domestic violence. That i have been party to in the past. It felt very authentic to me. So this episodes really all about family about homeland or growing up and billy growing up and how eagle. The archer is getting excommunicated because he won't denounce his family and how the church self is supposed to be their new family and now we also have starlight and her mom working on their stuff. Becca and ryan being ripped apart as a family so that homeland or in storm front can create this new creepy. Weird patchwork family by turning ryan against becca and then taking advantage of his anger to go ahead and fly off with him knowing. There's nothing the becca can do. We learn about hueys. Family and lamp lighters family and gray salaries family and jonas family and also victoria newman's family with her daughter and through her frenchie and kimiko's relationships with their mom and cooking with them so ultimately that's really what this episode is all about what constitutes a family. How they come together and how they fall apart and whether or not reconciliation is possible for these characters in different domains. Elena and maeve. I think we'll be able to come back together later but elena just needs a little bit of time. They are in their own way. A family though just as starlight has her family with her mom and with the boys but she also has somewhat of a sisterhood with maeve am really enjoying seeing the development of that may still helps her but may does it on her terms. She's just standing there going. This is what i can offer you. I'll kill blackmore for you or at least incapacitate him. But i'm not leaving to come join your cause right now. Not a joiner. So by the end of the episode. We've explored family extensively. Lamp lighter can no longer testify because he has literally set himself on fire and died in the vodka conference room. Starlight is completely off the grid now with the boys and that congressional hearing is underway. So the aoc character victoria newman puts forward corporate malfeasance and multiple felony charges against vaunt. And we feel that we found our new person to replace lamp lighter for testifying in the form of jona so billy's approach worked best here and they call former. Cso doctor joan of vogel bomb to the stand to testify in this hearing and just as joanna roles in his wheelchair headstart exploding. And it's real red wedding meets. The worst type carnage. It is hard core and heads. Exploding everywhere as mallory tries to help victoria. Newman get out of there before any harm can come to her because she is the one senator or congresswoman who is on their side so everything and truth boys. Fashion goes off of the rails in a truly spectacular fashion. It is a sight to behold. Y'all i hope you've already caught up with it and we will catch up with the ending of it next week when we talk about the boys season. Two episode eight when all the crap hits the fan.

GSMC SciFi Podcast Episode 264: The Boys S2E2 Part 2 Keeping Up Pretenses

"Golden state media concepts, side podcast. Together, we dive into the world. In science fiction from episode of Star Trek Star Wars to the. Resident Evil all the. Science. Fiction movie from the factory Marvel or DC golden state media concepts, Sifi pub cats you'll never get science stations the same way again. Students. I taught. brought. TSMC podcast network I'm your host Alex. Today, we are picking up with the second half of the boys season two episode to. There is a lot to unpack this season you guys. I've already watched the first five episodes. I'm holding off a little bit on six until I can get these other ones recorded before they start all meshing together in my brain you know the nature of binge watching television nowadays. But there's a lot to go on. So last time we talked about how the deep did shrooms the return of a train maeve talking to Elena again, as well as the introduction of the new girl storm front and getting to explore her a little bit more. Today we're going to talk about the concept of Nice versus good and how that's an overarching theme for the entire series as it seems for this season. Anyway, we're also going to talk about pretenses and how all the world's stage. We'll talk about join me on the dark side as well. Is that seems to be a multi fact to`real theme with different characters in true the boys fashion where different types of characters are being juxtaposed in these situations so that we can see how different people choose different sides even when faced with very similar options and circumstances. And lastly, we're going to talk about. Storm Front and Star Lights, reversal of controls, and how this is really the land of Gods and monsters. So first up let's pick up where we left off in the last episode. So the deep was apologizing to his body and learning to love himself so that he can love. And then we had starlight. Blackmailing, her friend Gecko the guy whose body parts grow back she failed him into getting her a copy of compound the because he works down in the research centers of bought because they can. Injure his eyes or his arms and legs, etc. Cut them off even and they'll grow back and he will be fine. That's not to necessarily say it doesn't pain him in any way. But it does mean that he's very useful scientific research. And I like the day. Took it there. It is a strange ethical quandary because technically gecko seems to be consenting to this. We certainly know that he is consenting to letting people chop off his arms, legs, his member, it Sarah for money and CD motel rooms. But that type of risk-taking behaviour could be indicative of someone who feels that they're out of control of different parts in their life, and this is the one area in which they can affect a measure of control over their body. Very similar to eating disorders and I don't know how much we're going to get to see Gecko. But that's what I think of when I watch this that this is a person who probably doesn't really need the money, but he needs some measure of control in his life. Perhaps he has other vices that we don't know about that leading him to let other people chop off parts of his body for money he doesn't seem to get any type of sexual fulfillment from it. And he doesn't seem as far as we can tell to actually need the money. So there's that Geckos also interesting because he takes us on a ride for another side of ethics and that's ethics in scientific research. A lot of people are very against doing any type of studies on humans or animals human specifically prisoners or animals because they are not consenting in the case of animals, they're not able to consent in the case of prisoners it can be viewed as coercion. So not true cents under the law. So, in this way. We're really seeing the possibility of a future in which someone can go. Hey, I'm going to volunteer for this. I'm not depressed or trying to kill myself or anything like that. I. Just want to contribute and this is the way that I feel I can best contribute. Medical trials out there that folks consent to. So this isn't truly that far fetched. It's just that this man can grow parts of his body back. Now that doesn't necessarily mean he's not being coerced by bought. It also doesn't mean that he grew up in a way that would have allowed him access to things socio economically to obtain a better life. Socially Considered to be a freak by many people and that could have resulted in him feeling ostracized are not the only thing that he can do to make money is to work with his body. I think there are a lot of interesting implications in this character that's introduced the season. and. We get to know him mostly through starlight who used to go to those church circuits with him. And she does blackmail him and it is a obviously very upsetting to him not only is she an old friend but now she's kind of a big deal and she's coming to him for help by blackmailing him. So we catch up with Gecko at the meet and greet after storm front and starlight. Do the girls can do it tour or the girls get it done tore his what it is may is off hanging out with Elena. WHO's appendixes ruptured says she skipped out on it because she is old pro and Maeve knows that she can just give Ashley the finger and blow this off. It's not like it came directly from anyone that may truly has to listen to. But afterwards, storm front sitting by herself and live streaming trash talk about her own action figures. She's holding the action figure until people. This is a piece of crap. You'll spend your money on it. And it's very ballsy. It's also somewhat rude and it seems very arrogant and entitled because she's brand new to seven. She has these obligations that come along with that that come along with a lot of different types of notoriety like if you are in action movies or your pro wrestler than a lot of times, you'll get body scanned and they'll create toys that often don't entirely look like you. They'll create video game characters that Kinda look like you things like that, and you might not always love it but a lot of those. Contracts required that you. Perhaps don't trash talk them. So this is pretty wild that she's doing this. She's going okay. You're making me do this and I understand that and I'm GonNa do it but. I. Don't have to be happy about it. I don't have to be quiet about being unhappy about it. You would think that it would result in her being perhaps fired, but it is an interesting strategic move from a PR perspective. Through the Lens of millennials and Gen. Z., we like people who speak straight fax and Storm Front. Does that I can totally see the appeal as this. Old School Captain America style just isn't necessarily winning people over as much anymore rather, it's not winning over the new generations. Homeland is still tests very well with a lot of folks but really storm front is going to be the one taking these new. Viewers she is going to interact better with the feminist viewers than even a veteran like maeve or someone like starlight might starlight isn't as willing to buck the system given that. You know she got caught hanging out with Huey who even she didn't know it turned out to be working against Vodka and homeland almost laser her for it before Queen Maeve stepped in. So. She is not as willing to buck the system externally outright in the public eye, but she does a with a love what storm front saying. So as she finishes her trash talking and Inter livestream starlight walks over and tells her hey I really like what you've been saying and I want to say those things too. I agree and Storm Front just Kinda scoffs at her and accuses her of being taught spy. And that is the point at which I start to question storm front. To me this comes across as. Her gas lighting starlight by flipping it around on her and accusing her. Of something that I think that storm front may be doing. That really makes a big impact on the other person because it immediately puts them into defense mode. It's something that a lot of people who cheat on their partners do. It's accusing the other person of exactly what you're doing and it throws them off the scent granted in the case of people cheating on their partners sometimes also just anxiety and stress and paranoia going. Oh no I'm doing this thing I bet that they are to. Out Think Storm. Fronts experiencing any of those other qualities of paranoia or distress at all? It is like she's playing a game. She is too cool for school and she is above it all she's playing like three D chess. It seems I don't know entirely what she's up to but. I do question. Her questioning starlight. Look Pretty. Body as storm front says, she looks like. She is hyper sexualize. She has big hair. We saw an episode one how a lot of who she is. Fabricated especially for the world stage, it is a lot. It's weighing heavily on starlight and she's going oh my gosh here's someone who might agree with me and that's also kind of helped moles work. They flush you out by going hey, this is how identify. This is what I believe. What about you? So it's not looking good for starlight in my opinion, she's getting a little ahead of herself. She's getting a little ballsy in some ways, but she's also still Anne down and she still too trusting. She's willing to call Huey on his crap because she knows who he is. She has already face to face with that but she's still giving this brand new person the benefit of the doubt in fact, she's not even doubting her at all she's going hey, I believe you I agree with you. Let's essentially be bros. and that's not great. Right after storm front kind of derisively dismisses her and walks off Gecko pops up and is giving her the compound V in a little packet that also has tampons in it and start lights like dude I don't have any pockets. I don't have anywhere to put this like we just talked on air about how I don't have pockets in these outfits. Storm Front was going on about it being a feminist issue. And he's like I. don't care you ever come and try to blackmail me again I will take you down with me and just admit to everything straight up. This is it. I don't talk to you again, and so she needs to go ahead and hide this somewhere and she tries to Tuck it in her boot when Adrian pops up. And somehow, she hides it with some sleight of hand in storm fronts bag slash purse instead. Now. I don't know exactly how that works. I would think that eight train would perhaps need. Increased Acuity of vision in order to run as fast as he does without running into more things. I mean, he ran into rob in the first episode of Season One, but he also just didn't really care about that. It seems that he burst through people and other objects enough that it's not a big deal for him. season. One was largely about the collateral damage that the soups 'cause. So, there's that but. Is Weird to me to think that he also couldn't see something like that. I don't think that. starlight could really move fast enough to get that out of a train on site but I digress maybe he just wasn't paying good attention because he was looking at her boot. In any case, she seems to go ahead and get away with that. But GECKO is absolutely done with her at this time. So her circle is kind of shrinking and it's not even just circle shrinking, but her ring of enemies is simultaneously expanding. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back, we're going to talk about. Maeve and Elena, as well as Becca Ryan in home. Lander stay tuned.

Combat before the break catching up with gecko storm front and starlight midway an episode two of season two including the concept of perhaps storm front gas. Lighting. Starlight as she is being Mo and starlight really using sleight of hand try to hide something from a train. Not entirely sure. I buy it but in a show about superheroes and such I'm going to let it slide. It just bothered me a little bit and of course, you know that's why I'm sitting here. I like to pick things apart I like to discuss sci-fi so. I digress. But if it bothered you to please, let me know on the Internet so I know that I'm not alone. Now. We're GONNA talk about backup. So beca drops Ryan off at piano lessons and says, she's GonNa go meet some lady friend. and then she speeds off to this gated military looking installation. And Wall. She's there minors going through her stuff and drinking the milk from the jug in the fridge. In a weirdly sexual manner we briefly discussed last time. I'm sorry I shouldn't say weirdly sexual should not shame. It. Is uncomfortable to watch it because that's the way it's intended to be portrayed, and that's the way filmed and Anthony Star totally hits the nail on the head. So he does a fantastic job at that, and that's actually something that I'm stoked about is his range. He pretty much goes full Daniel day-lewis in this role of Home Lander. And it is. Frightening and uncomfortable. You're just constantly uncomfortable with this man and he does a great job at telling stories with his eyes. So, shout out to Anthony Star again. However, we see that he's going through Oliver stuff seeing that photo of billy and her in a false bottom drawer in seeming to get a little jealous he's at least upset about it so. There's that. And then Becca goes to that facility to talk to Dr Park someone, in Dr, Park, about homeland her. And she's very upset. She lived Scott Full Mama. Bear, and she's manning to be moved in hidden from him but they decline it and say, just make him happy. He'll probably get bored. And she's really really upset about that. But she knows that now at homeland or knows about Ryan, there's no way that there's anywhere she can really hide. I don't know if she knows about him not being able to see through zinc but I also imagine that if there was a big zinc lined. Bunker even anywhere in the world homeland or would eventually know that it was there because he'd be like, okay I can't see through that. But Dr. Park. Has Really Rude and dismissive and tells her that she'd better be getting back because Ryan's piano lessons are almost over. So it seems she's very much a captive even before she was a captive of homeland irs perhaps she's also already captive avant. In the meantime Maeve and her ex girlfriend Elena are chilling in the hospital together watching botched and Elena essential that may take her to dinner. But then she remembers that to stay in because Maeve is famous and you can tell but Elena is kind of upset. By this and she made me feel like Maeve has been hiding her like she's embarrassed, which is very similar to the relationship dynamic. We saw before between pop clawing train and season one. But this diverges in goes a different route Elena gets really mad and tells Maeve to leave. and. May just can't take Elena being mad at her anymore. She loves this person and the only reason may have walked away was because she was afraid of what homeland or might do to Elena? And she finally tells Elena about that. She tells us that homeland or is. Crazy he's sociopathic. He's off his rocker and he's dangerous and he just kills people and he makes the rest of them do messed up things to. and. So she's terrified that he might ever find out about her and then harm her and he's the most dangerous person in the world well, and truly so. This isn't something that may is making up and Elena can tell by her tone. And how scared me looks and The just the look in her eyes to that. She's being incredibly genuine and Elaine is like, why are you just tell where you're telling me this now? And maeve says she couldn't take Elena hating her anymore. It's very relatable and it's a truth shall set you free type of moment. It's going to allow Maeve to love Elena and for Elena. To. Love her back perhaps without being so mad all the time or feel like she's being hidden and may've is keeping all of these secrets from her. But that doesn't necessarily make it safe for Elena. The fact that moves there at all or the fact that now she knows about homeland her. We don't know how good Elena is at keeping secrets, but for her say I who she is dope added. We also see Home Lander Buying Ryan cell phone or rather handing Ryan a cell phone not buying it himself. And he says he can call him and we established that Ryan's pretty much home-schooled and he's home a lot of the time unless he is otherwise with his mother or like at his piano lessons. And so Ryan's Kubeck call and Home Lander was like you can call me. And Ryan Okay trying to look really grateful for this but also he's absolutely bewildered. He's like a nine year old little boy. So he's not even really gotten to the age where they're chat on the phone with each other all the time in my experience that's about age twelve or so. And so he's Kinda confused but he gets that it's a nice gesture and is trying to be the good kid that Becca has raised him as and be appreciative. So, Ryan's in bed and owners essentially tucking him in. and. It's very weird. But he confides in Ryan that he's never had a mom or dad that he made up the story about playing catch with his dad that he told him. And that? It doesn't matter though because both of them are gods, he says that he and Ryan are both Gods and everyone else is inferior to them. It's truly terrifying to consider that he could inculcate this child into his own belief system is Associate Pathak as But Ryan seems to be very uncomfortable with this and tries to segue out of it by being like Hey I think I should probably be going to bed. And that's a smart move on Ryan's part he is choosing to. Essentially. Fallen. So there's a fight or flight response, and then there's also fawning and fawning is when you are trying to keep that person happy and you're making a big deal about them, and that's what homeland is also used to. That's what Madeleine stillwell did with him and that's why he's not happy with Mr Edgar he's used to being able to back people down. And Ryan is also essentially fawning although he's wearing his discomfort a little bit more on his face but homeland is not really that familiar with children and so he doesn't seem to pick up on it. He's also super stoked about just the idea of having a kid. And it's making him force this relationship quite a bit. So He's trying skip all of these steps and it's making Ryan. Really uncomfortable. He's making him say I love you back to him and stuff, and it's because homeowner didn't have a normal upbringing. He's having Ryan do these things and might himself is doing these things because he's perhaps seen it on TV or acted it out in one of the movies? So. He is going through the motions and In his own way is kind of trying, but he's not trying to forge a connection with Ryan. He's trying to fill that void that he never received as a kid of love and affection with no lies or subterfuge. And he thinks that he can get that with Ryan but Ryan is reluctant about that and. It kind of looks like it's turning into a nature versus nurture type issue. We know now that soups aren't born, they're made. And that's just soups in general. But I think that we're also heading into territory to see that. Villains. Also. Aren't just born they're made. It's partly about your social environment growing up and your emotional wellness and mental health and wellbeing whether those things are cared for whether your needs are met. Technically Home Lander. Was Fed and clothed things like that. He was taught how to read how to speak and everything but he was not taught how to be a good person. He didn't have anyone modeling that for him and you can really see that and how he moves through these motions and when he says I love you too Ryan instead of letting Ryan come to in his own time or saying that's okay. You'll get to it when you're comfortable he goes. You're supposed to sit back. and. It's like he's queuing him for it like it's a scene in this fantasy land that he is playing out because that's what it is but it's very nature versus nurture, and it's also giving me really strong. Join me on the dark side vibes and will rule together as father and son. Homeland. Also spent all this time feeling like he is the only one of his kind and through his relationship with Ryan feeling a kinship in more ways than one. He's stoked to have a son but also to have someone else who is just like him and he feels that Ryan is better than the other soups. Because he comes directly from home lenders loins. This is creeping the kid out and I think this is coming from a place of like the wound of the Fisher King, which is a youngin type perspective. We'll talk more about Home Lander and the Fisher King wound in a future. To get a few more of these under our belts to see his story arc. So we can really truly in with that one you guys know a big fan of Robert Johnson and also of Carl Young's work when it comes to analysing literature. So we'll delve into that in a future episode but for now. Just know that homeland is trying to fill this weird void by having this child. And as he leaves the room because the kids like I should be going to bed. We see that Becca outside and she's mad and she's like you need to leave. You need to be out of here and he's like, no, we had a deal and they're running around being free and not dead. So. I'm not going anywhere. You're up mom and then ask her if she wants Jiffy pop. So it's another all American reference Eh it's also him. Trying to get under her skin but also Marcus territory and just pee all over the place and go I'm not going anywhere and then he also just offhandedly reveals Beca that he knows about her conversation with Dr Park just by saying that she's right and he's not going to get bored and. Go Away. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back, we're going to see what the boys find when they break into the address debt now ary gave them stay tuned.

The best before the break we were talking about. Elena 's discussion in the hospital, as well as the relationship between Becca Ryan and homeland. Now, we're going to discuss what the boys find when they take the address that Mallory gave them and do what they do best, which is go to cause mayhem. They go to break into this place. And they find a costume shop. So this is a very large costume shop and it's full of cardboard cutouts and costumes and everything about the seven. It's highly unnerving to be in there and see a homeland. Cardboard cutout while you're going in there to try to find the soup terrorists but it adds another fun and interesting dimension to the story they could have picked literally any other type of store but this gives us the impression that this event are watchers. So it's like who watches the watchmen type of thing it's like they're ever vigilant and they are all seeing all knowing, and that's also the impression that homeland has just given Becca. I don't know what his radiuses for hearing, but it's kind of following up with that visually and conceptually. So they're in what's really kind of an effigy of the belly of the beast. They're still in a dangerous spot they're looking for at least one known soup terrorists but also they have to remember that even though they're looking for a terrorist that doesn't necessarily mean that the good guys the seven are on their side or that this is going to mean. For them at all, all they have is malary's word that she's going to try to help them expunge their records. So, while they're in their. kimiko recognizes an old man in the office part. Analytically literally rips his. Head off and. So here for it, she just goes into a rage clearly recognizing this person, no words are exchanged. Like. No questions nothing at all. She just kills him. It's kind of like if Han Solo and Chewbacca had a baby a baby that shoots first and doesn't bother asking any questions, they just rip your arms out of your sockets. So I really love that about Kimiko and she's also. I think a good person. She just had a terrible thing done to her and this is really retribution for it. So Frenchie sees her do that and then sees the guy has a tattoo and that he's part of the Shining Light Liberation Army that terrorist group that kidnapped Kimiko and her brother as a kid and force them to fight for them. And we find out that the soup terrorists is really her brother. and. They speak to each other using hand signs, but it's not a asl or anything like that. It seems to be a language of their own. And Billy goes to still shoot this guy because billy wants what billy wads and he does not care about collateral damage. If people that he is in cahoots with get hurt. Remember he abandoned the boys last time to go and try to murder homeland by kidnapping madeline still well. That's something he could have done at any point after he saved them. But no, he decided he had to do that right then. So Billy's selfish and he goes to try to shoot the guy. And Huey tried to stop him. He's like, Hey, that's her brother. But of course, goes shoot anyway and Huey tackles him, and the super villain gets away along with Kimiko. And we see that he has tele kinetic abilities. He trashes that place it is hard core. They get their butts handed to a but. They also now have to go and track them down and billy is, shall we say less than pleased that that is happening? He's about ready to frigging kill Huey. We then get a shot back to starlight and storm. Front. And starlight is all in her feelings because storm front in their last encounter accused her of being a spy. and. So Star lights like I'm not a sellout and I also WanNa say what you say about what? And Storm Front. Tells the story and she's like, who is the best superhero in the world and so it's like I don't know. And Star fronts like no not homeland it's PIPPI longstocking. She's the best superhero because she takes no crap and she speaks her truth and says, and does what she wants like she speaks her mind. You should be more like PIPPI longstocking. And then you know she's accusing starlight being about spy so that made me really suspicious because she's still portraying her as the embodiment of thought knowing that starlight doesn't feel that way. But you know I'm just very suspicious. You guys as a as person in general but we see that she is using this situation starlight that is to get the compound. Out of storm fronts backpack. So I'm not sure how many layers there are here of pretense because all the world's a stage and that's really what we're seeing happen here. So. Just storm front acting that's not been confirmed I suspect. And is. starlight. Also, playing this game. I'm not sure and he's trying to learn how to act while she's already on stage. She's having to Improv absolutely everything including these pretenses and Telling how much of it is any truly being Anne and how much of it is her learning to play the game? I think this is mostly Annie. Being Annie but we do know that she at least initiated the conversation so she could get that out of the backpack. Billy on the other hand. Is Still. Really Matt it he wants to punch him but mother's milk stopped him and billy tells Huey to F- off and that the rest of the boys are going to be with him with billy but they actually don't fall in line and follow because in Billy's. Chemicals become one of them and they're not willing to jeopardize the relationship between her and her brother. Day want to see their families again very much. But not at the expense of Kimiko losing hers because they know that. Will lock him up and probably do unspeakable tests and scientific studies and torture to this man. So they don't WanNa do that to one of their friends but billy only cares about what billy wants and so he doesn't actually care about anyone else getting what they want, and we really start to see that shine through sure Kimiko is a soup and she's new to the group but billy also only once what he wants, he doesn't care about their families either. And we're seeing that when butcher admits that Becca is alive and that homeland or showed him. And Her son. And the deal is that he finds the soup terrorists and Mallory fines backup. So now, we're not even sure of Getting their stuff scrubbed, go back to their families was ever on the table at all but we do know what billy finally came clean to mallory about and why Mallory would be helping him now. But he also makes a great point. He's like look you left them alone to die in billy's like, Hey, I left them alone thinking they would get out of this situation like they had thousands of time before we worked together many times over the years and I thought they could handle themselves and on the one hand billy does have a point. They have been in numerous scrapes together over the years. They go way back and billy has a lot more experience with them then Huey does. But, Huey has more heart in general whereas Billy's heart is only for Becca. and. It's that difference too between being good verses Nice? Billy's not necessarily good. Billy can be nice when he needs to or when he wants to. But overall, he's not nice. He's not really good either. And I also noticed as I was watching this that billy does not talk about retrieving saving the kid. He only talks about Becca and that's on brand for billy but also Beckham mom now he doesn't know Becca, the mom and I really doubt that Beck is going to be willing to leave her son. If. She didn't care about the kid. She would likely not have had custody of him. This whole time vote would have just taken him from her and raise them themselves but they're doing this experiment where they leave him with her and she raises him as he is trying to raise him in a natural environment to see how well I guess he can come across a know they're not doing it for the goodness in their heart and it's not about. Experimenting on the kid in overt ways because the kid didn't even know he had powers and he's never been encouraged to use them before homeland or showed up. BEKKER's even standing up to homeland her for Ryan and Homeland Irs. One of the people she's most afraid of in the world he's likely being person she's most afraid of. He's the person that many people are most afraid of, but for me her standing her ground and continuing to stand up to homeland or repeatedly. Shows me that she's already chosen Ryan over billy. And also, the fact that she's even there to begin with and just walked out on billy means that she already chose Ryan over billy along time ago. And we don't have all the details yet but that's also probably why he doesn't care about, Kimiko? It's about familial bond. And although billy has this bond with Becca and the phrase is the blood of the Covenant is thicker than the water of the womb. It seems that for Becca that's not necessarily the case. And really, neither is it for Billy because his covenant and Brotherhood with the boys is not anywhere close to the covenant that he has with Becca. She is his everything quite literally. So he doesn't apply that principle in that manner either. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back, we're going to wrap up this episode with the outcome of macos reunion with her brother as well as starlight conference with a train stay tuned. TV has changed over time streaming has become the new norm. That's why Golden State concepts television podcast dives headfirst to the world court cutting wants to be on the lube of what's hot in. Netflix or if it's not a preference what original shows in Hulu, we've got you covered join us as we fill the blank and talk about movies to stream and what show you should be binge. This is golden state media concepts, television podcast. St-. St-. Four. The break we were talking about how on brand billy is not caring about anyone else except for Becca. The man is single minded. He has tunnel vision and Becca is the only light in his life. Truly. So she's also the light at the end of his tunnel vision. I'm not really sorry about that word wordplay even if it did probably make you grown. Now. We are catching up with Kimiko and her brother last. Saw Them. They escaped from billy in the boys and now we see them talking on a swing set like their kids I. Really Love. They chose to show these characters reuniting. And this show is just masterfully made the cinematography in it. The billy. Joel everywhere I absolutely love it. It's so much deeper than just carnage. Although the carnage is also really interesting too. I like the realistic look at what superheroes would really look like it's not going to be super clean if superman or someone lasers someone, it's going to be messy if Superman using x ray vision all the time he might be giving people radiation sickness. Who knows how many times is he doing this? WHO's in proximity to him? What is the collateral damage? These are the questions that I've asked for years and that the boys is doing a fantastic job getting across onscreen. I know that it was also a comic first graphic novel. I will have to definitely check that out but I find that a lot of times it's hard to translate these things to the screen, but I can't wait to see what kind of fantastic imagery is in the comics just based on what I have seen on the TV show so far. But I digress. So Kimiko and her brother are talking swing set right and they forgive themselves in this conversation they don't really need to forgive each other, but they're each trying to seek out forgiveness from the other and in that learning to forgive themselves because the other one never held that against them. It turns out that her brother can verbally. And that Kimiko is still using the hand signs. So perhaps she is not able to speak and hasn't been due to some congenital issue or blast trauma. Or maybe a personal issue related to psychological trauma. I'm not sure we don't really know that part yet, but it is interesting that he can also talk. We also see starlight texting Huey from her room about having the compound V she's in her room or her quarters that huge expansive area that we saw an episode, one of the season. and. It's a little bit crazy. I think that she's doing that she's just rushing in there and texting him like it's nothing like she doesn't need to also be using a burner phone and all this other stuff and what happens homeland or in them find her burner phone. She seems a little reckless right now because she's caught up in the adrenaline and the excitement of getting a hold of the compound V to go through with their plot of exposing bought and the fact that soups are made not born that she's forgetting to be diligent and mindful of her surroundings. And she gets popped immediately, a train is actually in there and confronts her about the compound V. Threatens her with telling home her and goes to leave after giving her this big speech about how he is going to really enjoy her getting her butt handed to her for this and probably you know killed. But starlight calls him on. It are girls getting balls here just like Huey is she calls him on it and also she calls now on killing pop claw. So not only is she learning to stand up for herself and she's asserting herself more often now bit she's also proactively gone out of her way to intentionally blackmail GECKO. She's also apparently been proactive about looking into vaunts file on pop claw whom she'd likely never even met. Pop Claw wasn't the religious circuit type from what I could tell. and. So Anne is likely not to come in contact with her before, but she went ahead and read this information and I think that the logical conclusion she only did this in order to have something on a train because she knew he was on her about. Her leading Huey go and also the thing I'm not sure at which point she went and read this file perhaps there's a contingency plan while was in a coma for in case he woke up I'm not sure but she gets real nasty about it the gloves. Off she said that she read the Autopsy Report on Pop claw and says that she will tell sports illustrated about how pop clause was shattered from just one of the needles that were jammed into her and that they were all jammed in at once. Seemingly So she pretty much has him right where she needs him at this point and he pretty much just silently folds. She takes back the compound V from him. He doesn't it back. She takes it out of his hand and then he silently leaves. And at that point, we see how uncomfortable she really was. We see her relax and that she was posturing and just got lucky. So it looks like these press junkets that she has been doing have really been paying off learning how to truly act as an actress and as a human being in this arena of her life all the world's a stage she always has to be on no matter where she goes because she's super recognizable and she has to keep up these pretenses. But now she's learning how to use those pretenses and those acting skills to her advantage. We've seen her encounter with storm front, and now with eight train where she is using information, she has to posture herself put herself in a position to obtain what she needs and that way storm fronts not entirely wrong that she's becoming a little body. Do the ends justify the means though. Perhaps, I. We will have to keep watching and see. In the meantime though Ky-ko's brother tells her that their village was destroyed. When she tells him Hey, let's go back. Home was just go home. That's all I want. That's all she's wanted for years and he's like we we can't destroy the village. So she's like, okay, we'll to Japan. And instead he says that he's not just going to go home with her that he's come around to see that shining light was right. and. She reminds him that they killed their parents but he's drank the shining light kool aid at this point and he wants her to join him again, we have that join the dark side type of theme in which a family member is going. Hey, come with me to do this thing that the other one knows is not right and Kimiko makes a different decision. She declines vehemently disagrees with him and he tries to just wave. And she doesn't want to let him go. So he tele kinetically blasts her through a high apartment window. But she still manages to get the jump on him and chokes him unconscious. While the boys pull up with the van and she lets them take him. She's not happy with billy and she lets him know that with her eyes and her expression, and he is visibly a little freaked out. She could totally just rip his head off. But he kind of backs down and doesn't act so gleeful about it. Billy still mad at Huey. And punches him and says that he'll kill him if Huey. Between Butcher and Becca again. And the INS with the song psycho killer, which is one of my favorite talking heads songs, and it's very befitting for billy especially as he is right now with being this close to finding Becca, having this renewed sense of urgency because he now no, she's alive and he's upset that he ever gave up on her to begin with. He would kill anyone forward just stepping on line anyone who game between him and his wife right now he would kill them without any remorse. Remember he blew that House that still will had. thinking the baby was still inside of it he really doesn't care. He has no qualms about that, and in that way, he's not entirely dissimilar from home winter. There are important differences like billy is not a rapist. He's not there for that power and control, but he just really does not care about how harming other people effects anyone else in the world around him and he outright killed Messmer in airport bathroom. He will publicly kill somebody without remorse and so hewing knows when billy tells him that that billy means it. And that really just takes us back to that difference between Nice versus good. It's something that storm front brings up as a flippant remark but it's a strong theme for this whole seasons. Trajectory someone like Annie is both nice and good but doing what she did to Gecko blackmailing him her means along the way. Are Not necessarily nice or good. Is it technically good because it's in service of the greater good perhaps. But at the end of the. It's not kind and it's not nice. I personally ascribe to the concept that. Goodness means that you're good to everyone someone who is good to you. But not good to the waiter is not a good person and I don't like to be around people like that. What defines good for me is how you treat people who cannot do anything for you. You're not going to get anything out of them and there is no reason to expect that they could even do anything for you or that there are any ramifications for treating them poorly. If you're still good to people in those situations then you're a good person. People. Who are not good can still act. Nice. That's what homeland or does. He's definitely not good but he can be nice. He can be nice when he needs to be when he's onstage but he is a terrible person goodness equality of morality as I see it and niceness is. Someone acts within a given moment. You're not necessarily nice all the time, but you don't have to be nice time to be good. There are situations in which being a good person necessitates not being nice. would any have really followed through on blackmailing Gecko I don't know it wasn't very nice of her to do that to even say that to him, but it was in service of what she perceives to be the greater good. The fact that M. and Frenchy and Huey all stood with Kimiko and decided not to turn her brother in Mallory? was an act of goodness and kindness and niceness. But they had to have an uncomfortable confrontation with billy in order to do. So Huey even gets punched because of it. I also don't think that things are necessarily black and white. So Billy is in love with Becca and she is his sole reason for being his raison d'etre. I may have butchered that I don't speak French but that is why immediately comes to mind his entire happiness and self worth in his life are all wrapped up in Beca when he thought she was dead. He didn't have a reason to go on living and tried to blow himself up with homeland or retribution was all he cared for at that point and now all he cares about is finding her. So I don't think billions necessarily a bad person there is good in him. kind of like how there was good in Darth vader and Luke is like I know that there's still good in you. Becca is able to bring that out of billy and the way that Luke. Through that familial relationship of being vader's son was able to pull that out of him. But at the end of the day, how far is she going to be able to go in convincing him to take Ryan with them or to Love Ryan, and maybe accept him as if not his own at least being her son and someone that's worthy of respect and love. I, think that's going to be really difficult for billy as we continue along. But we'll continue this conversation of Nice versus good and the world being stage and join me on the dark side as we continue this season and see how all of the different characters react to it. I know that we're only two episodes into the reviews right now but it is so exciting to get to watch season two of this I'm like a little kid at Christmas I don't often get excited for many things get excited for my birthday or anything like that. But I am super stoked that this is out now and I'm kind of sad that we only get eight episodes. So now I'm trying to pay it out a little bit but it's a great show and I'm glad to have you guys joining me in discussing it.

Onto New York City. What do you make of Ramona's relationship with covid protocols and Plastic Hannibal Lecter Mask at the Reunion She got called out and then she got called out on SOC.

Bravo takes up my everybody's talking about your portrayal of Kamala Harris on SNL. The other j you want an emmy for it a few weeks ago for your portrayal last year I mean I think the moment where you delivered the Wep line was absolutely you know inspired and incredible talk to me about. The process of coming up with with this week sketch and whether you were whether you were thrown a loop by the Cova. Diagnosis. That wow. That Kobe diagnosis on good old boy was real That was a real fascinating time in normally in my post cast member of SNL Life. You always think wouldn't it be great to be on the show right now it's so insane. It's it's everything is on steroids. Bit of information is coming in so fast. So fast that even show like snl that gives you everything up until the last minute didn't even have time to build half the sets they probably wanted to build to cover all this insanity. You know 'cause it was coming in what Friday night at one. Am when she you know that bitch before that but that's that's another. So It was pretty wild and you know. SNL is such an amazing place and the people that that run it the people that are there the crew that makes that show tick. I can't believe what they were able to accomplish on Saturday, and it was done I've known difficult because of the cove protocol. So. Believe it or not everything will it was harder to get things to cards like I didn't really get my lines until air I wasn't really I. Didn't get my lines to carve I, mean until air so I had never run now. Anybody in my yeah anybody else but you might like we it was good to have a pro there I. Think for that because I bless less Jim Carrey's heart because he just jumped right in and Ted was you know I mean even Alec is basically a cast member at this point you know. So it was really a lot. These times are not man they're not. They're not saying yet they. It's keep are still plenty to cover 'em. Thank God for that show. I really. I love it with heart emily and I are twins. Basically she'll tell you the same thing she we've loved since we were kids. WanNa take some questions from our virtual audience Adam what do you WanNa ask Maya. So what was the most surreal part of doing a double d zoom with Amy Poehler Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris? Every single bit of it, but I think my favorite part was poor amy's sound when out. On the zoom and I. Said I said Oh I. You know it's it's a conspiracy or something like that and Hillary said it's probably the Russians that that did. Thoughts. Okay Armao has a question for emily What's your question are Mel? Hi, Emily I think you've got much for having me this. Amazing. God. Thank you. Emily. If you could pick one real housewife, the hosts SNL, who would it be and why? right off the top of my head Ramona. 'cause I would love to see. Because I would just love to see how she deals with the I think she'd be great I think she'd be tough and funny. Wow aright. Not. Surprise me not only does Maya. Have a supremely unique comedic voice, but she has access to the literal voice of one of the most unique people in Fashion Donatella for Saatchi. So I WANNA play a special round of her Saatchi or Hibachi with Maya Maya if you can channel Donatella and tell us what she thinks about your past outfits.

Drama with Kate chastain than all the other shots combined spivey already mad about stuff Leon Watch. I'm so over everything about this human over his attitude I'm over his t shirts I'm over his moves. Did you have a chef's check at this evening? You did you have you ever had to that I've guest on other? Next time if we have multiple course center, could you give me more than two hours worded because I need it could go from? Mickey believe. I'm talking to you. I didn't know. This. No No. You gotta historic firing by Captain Lee. I should have right. Was it live US loud just watching that clever. I want to thank. Me For being here tomorrow night the Golden Globe awards at ten thirty watch our after show on twitter now. Thanks ladies. Guys after show Maya. Rudolph, and Emily Spivey are on blessed the heart Sundays at eight thirty on Fox Myers. Movie Huby Halloween's Netflix's I'm sorry I kept interrupting you ladies. It's so hard to host a show on on in this form now i. Know no worries. I still have a bunch of more questions. Emily Dave are wants to know which of your sketches that you wrote for Maya was the most fun to write and do you choose still quote it to this day. God. All we I mean everything I wrote with Maya was a delight starting back in at the groundlings. But I thank. God My and I. Think you'll agree I feel like bronx a sweater weather. was probably like my favorite but also I mean they're. I thought you were going to say Oprah because I feel like I feel like tell like the thing that came in that was clearly like a spy creation Rudolph physicality like memory just wrote things because she knew my boys stillwell and Donatella that for sure and I think that was a big part of. Our our run and the beginning. But when when we when you did Oprah's favorite things back. Changed on game like, yeah. That's that's one of my favorite things I've ever written. Yeah. Yeah. I feel it just. You just sitting at home watching Oprah and you came up without I, mean you saw the favorite things and you were like. Did Not air to air the Saturday after favorite things aired on TV. Yeah I mean it was close to it my God. I can't even remember but it I. Remember watching shows like these ladies are their pants. They're having their periods. They're having babies like that was my thing like just people going crazy. So and I knew that my did an amazing oprah my favorite thing that. Sad to both me and Maya was like for not putting me in a fat suit. 'cause my just came because Maya. Looked great overlooked great and she like it's the first time I've ever not been portrayed yeah zoo. The joke was not a man in you know pretending to be Oprah, which is what had preceded this but this was a loving portrayal of the beloved hurry added Soothe you know I. Mean I know that because emily wrote a an Oprah A. Sketch mirrored the groundlings. So that was really and then I got to go to the Oprah show and emily came with me and she said she looked down on Rusk Kleenex boxes waiting for you in the audience. Is like they they were started right. There was will actually when you next under every chair. Yeah, we have. Absolutely. Now that you say that I I'm now I was in the audience of over once and I remember the audience warm up was so intense they were like. How do you feel when something sat up like? Well, what would you do? If something happens I mean if we really like it was so manipulative perfectly to engender what you wind up seeing. Oh. That's so funny. Mardi g wants to know. Would you say? I said Harpo. HARPO productions. HARPO. Baby. Yeah. No. Which SNL sketch were you most unsure of but ended up being a total success my. I mean. I wasn't unsure of Bronx beat, but it was the most like created with love and Goofy and fun like Emily and I thought in mine and Emily's office and just goofed around and made each other laugh and we were doing our girlfriend, Jodi who ran the hair who still runs the hair department and us? No, and it was the loosest we ever were and it came out of years of being in that show years of being friends years of love in each other and finishing each other's sentences. So I didn't expect that one to be what it became. I, didn't expect to literally get handed the other day hand sanitizer called sweater weather you know where people get tattoos. That's amazing. Yeah it was. Sarah wants to know what's a surefire way to know that Lorne Michaels is gonNA cut your sketch. When he fully walks away. When he quietly takes his headset off and walks out from under the bleachers and you're just going, Oh, I'm just telling experience the United Arab leaders for sketches which I did and I never will but it's gotta be the most Skin thickening experience in life when you write a sketch on us and how you go under the bleachers with at dress and you watch him react to how the sketches playing. Sketching gets gets. Oh, my God I think. Yeah. So I guess I can't even imagine. And I guess. The best thing now that maybe didn't happen then is that the dress rehearsal cut for time sketches wind up on Hulu and they didn't use to or on Youtube so at least now. See them right like I feel like I you and I had a bunch of gems that didn't get to be seeing you know like. They went viral element for. Well Yeah because for Emily and I were were and have always been good girls and we weren't starters when we worked at the show we kept our heads down. We worked really hard and we weren't drama. So I think you know sometimes when I in any work environment especially, you know television show you know squeaky wheel gets more grease we were not squeaky wheels at all and We collaborate a lot of thought overlooked especially in the early days. 'cause we were just these like you know good good solid girl sweet and I beat Ladies Yeah. Marching into. What Why did my sketch five? Things that eager these tales of that we just didn't do and we weren't part of that. Though I think yeah. I think if we had lived in the age of social, media. things you would see a lot more of our stuff. I mean, we I kept all those those dress rehearsal shows the they so I had to watch but having many. So phony let. That never never saw the light of day. Why do you think things would be different if there was social media today just because it wouldn't be socially acceptable to cut the I guess. Whatever whatever they're showing on Hulu or the way that you can now. Show I. got it. Yeah I carry I'm here. Are Some of our. With some of our, some of our that we thought were misfires might have caught fire on. Social Needs. Yeah Right. All Right we'll Maya Emily I love hanging out with you again ten out of ten on agree or disagree very impressive. Audiences all cheering for you. Thank you so much watch plus the hearts for more thorough. Dot Com. Thanks for listening to the PODCAST everybody.

Episode 157  BlazorCMS & SpeakerMeet

The 6 Figure Developer Podcast

Episode 157 BlazorCMS & SpeakerMeet

"Name. Hello and welcome to the six-figure developer podcast the podcast where we talked about new and exciting Technologies Professional Development Clean Code Career Advancement, and more I'm John Kelly. I'm Clayton on. This week, we're going to talk about some of our personal projects I've been working on a cms in Blazer and John has a site for technology speakers. So. Clinton why don't you give us a little bit of background about Your Blazer CMS project? Yeah. So I'm not sure exactly how the idea got on my head but. I ended up being curious about how difficult it would be to render components dynamically. So I started to experiment with that and before too long I had pages that were rendering dynamically based off the a data set that was providing. So I kinda figured why not continue working down that path and build a full cms offering similar to wordpress or category although allot more like Kim Toco in the in the usage mostly kind of a headless cms where the consuming clients would be building their website and their components to the way that they wanted to less like prebaked stuff. I'm more familiar with wordpress. At this point a think a large majority or a large number of websites out there or utilizing wordpress in some form or fashion. I'm not as familiar with with Kim goes. So what what about Kimiko would you equate your blazers project to? Is it just the way it works or the ideas behind what you're trying to develop? Its the the fact that it's a headless cms, which at first is a little difficult to to kind of get your head around salt tried to explain that basically with a satellite wordpress, you go to your wordpress site and you go slash Wbz Adnan, and then from that Admin page, which is part of your site you add pages you manage the content different languages, you add plug ins, et Cetera et Cetera with something like Ken. Toco they provide the server of your content Ryan. So you will go into the CALICO Admin site and set up your pages and add new. I forget what they exactly call them. But Kinda like component designs. So you might say we have a component named calendar and that component. A series of months and a has a a series of days of the week, and we expect the user to fill out the names, the months and the names of the days of the week, and then we expect the actual component that will work on the website to take care of the rendering and everything. It is then the user's responsibility to build a web application that can consume the data that's coming from their admin portal. So instead of going into. wordpress and just adding something you will actually have to create those components. So you would be making your own calendar component in your website This could be Java scrip- component. You could even use Toco for a web for our a windfarms application if you wanted to. They just provide the data, which is which represents a description of what you want your application to display, and then you have to provide all the code to make it display the correct thing. The idea with this is that are with mine is that I would have the Admin side all set up configured ready to go and similar to go. You could go into the Admin side and build out the description of your components and the description of the pages that are consuming those components, and then the client side would would consume that data from the server side. And, then you would have to build the blazer components that would render based on that data. The one thing that I would be providing for the client side is the dynamic rendering components. So you wouldn't have to build out the infrastructure which you may or may not have to do with Kimiko depending on the platform that you choose to use. I guess that would be sort of similar but minus specifically targeted at a blazer on on both sides because that's what I wanted to work with. But like I'll have a new package where you can, you can pull down the dynamic portions and then all you have to do is create your blazer components. Inform the Admin side about those components and then fill out the date on Admin side. So why Blazer for for this particular project? Because Blazers cool. Really it's it's It's kind of new technology on the block and I really think if not blazer some other web assembly based technology is going to be the way forward. So since blazer is the one that's available now and it's my favorite language C. Sharp. I, figured that's the one that I would work with. You and I have chatted about this quite a bit in it's one of the applications that we work on on. Wednesday nights on twitch on the live stream. So if anybody wants to tune in and see for themselves and ask questions and contribute ideas and thoughts to it, we would certainly welcome the feedback about this. This is more of a closed source application that correct. Yeah, a originally for maybe a week or so I had it as a full MIT licensed application on get hub and then I changed my mind. And the the license and put it into a private repo on. The thought process was that if actually come up with something good I might want to sell it as software as a service similar to where they can go does you know if I'm going to be riding on this code I might as well try to find a way to get paid for it. So, let's go down the thought process in developing this this particular application what what have you already started scaffolding would have already started implementing what are the plans in the immediate future and further down the line. Yeah. So I've actually already gone to the bare bones of the dynamic component rendering figured out it is rendering components dynamically based on information that it is receiving from an API call and I. Also, I took the source from the Microsoft routing the blazer already uses and I kind of created my own dynamic routing because I needed to not find pages based off of the reflection that it was doing but instead to find pages based off of the data that's coming from the server. So I kind of upended to the code that they already had to include also mind dynamic data points the things that I'm working on now. I decided it didn't make a lot of sense to keep building out these these components. Instead, it makes more sense to go ahead and get a full into end process working. So the thing that I'm working on now is the Admin side kind of mocking out the ability to list out the pages that are already in the system and then avenue components and new things to those pages. I haven't made a lot of progress in that direction I was trying to avoid actually adding a database. But. I don't think I'm going to be able to do that. I. Think I think I'M GONNA have to break down and just add a database. Would imagine most content management systems have some kind of data store backing the the application rights there's got to be if not a database would actual files that are on the server or or or being served up by the application. Yeah. the prototype that we actually just worked on last Wednesday was the The ability to load from file and that's that's actually functioning We have content Todd Jason and all the data's being loaded from there, and that SORTA works but it's going to have to to grow and I'm not sure how well a single file and it's still basically a database is just it's just a document store for the the information and there are much more efficient documents, stores them. Just me hitting the file system, it will most likely expand into. I'm leaning towards some form of document database right now but possibly sequel and it'll it'll expand into that real quick. Maybe even the next time that we work on it eventually have to consider ways to partition the data for different. Clients of the the SAS. which right now, since I'm still in the prototyping phase, I'm just pretending like I only have the one client and then I'll I'll break that stuff out later. So what do you think maybe continue fleshing out the Admin side or do you think at some point in the next week or two that we can start discussing potentially implementing the client application as well? Well like I said, the client already renders dynamic components. So the only thing left to do on the client is to. Design the components for a web application that we want to run, and I, do want to get that going soon ish because I'd like to have a demo site actually running out there in the wild that people could go to and see you know see what the performance and things are like. But in order to work with that data effectively, we really need the Admin side because right now, if I wanted to add a new component to the page, I have to manually build out that data profile and it's kind of annoying. So any more about the message you want to share before we move on? Now I mean, that's basically it. I. I would enjoy any any feedback. If People Watch us on Wednesdays I know that it's technically closed source, but it is open development. So anybody that shows up on Wednesdays if it's a Wednesday where we're working on on my project, then I would love to get any feedback on ideas suggestions or or the code itself. But that kind of brings us to to the next thing some Wednesdays we won't be working on my side project will be working on yours and your current one. If I'm not mistaken is called Speaker meet you tell us about that where it came from and what is purposes. Yeah. So the the initial idea was Kinda floating around in my head when the Annetta Organization announced that they were disbanding and no longer going to be helping speakers with their travel costs and lodging and connecting to user groups and meet ups and and conferences, and I thought that they filled such a vital role in the organization that surely some someone or something could could step up and help fill. That void. So at initially started thinking about a a resource for speakers in connecting with user groups and conferences resource for conferences to reach out to potential speakers and user groups to reach out to potential speakers, and of course, we run a local meet up group in the Saint Pete Tampa Bay area in Florida. So we're always looking for speakers and especially these days when most of our meetings, our remote and. Virtual so were were interested in getting connected with speakers can speak at our user group virtually. So with all this time that I had on my hands in the evenings after the kids gone to bed, then didn't I'm looking to continue to stay productive and looking to continue working on applications and honing my craft and continuing to improve my skills and and just build out something I decided to re energized this. This application this idea for for more recent development Before it was an NBC site, it was never really completed and never really functioning So I think this time around I'm trying to make it useful and and get it out there in the wild and help people find it and get some help from the community to help contribute to it as well in a figure if nothing else it can be. A reference application for how to implement certain things using a variety of different technologies and wiring everything together and I say a reference application because I wanNa make sure that people understand that there's more than one way to skin a cat. Which speaking of of the the wide array of of technologies that you're using, you've got some of them listed here in our in our show notes that of that I'm looking at you WanNa go through some of those there's quite a few. Yeah. So I've been primarily working in dot net core and a lot of my recent experiences in Dutton core web API projects, hosting applications in Azure and utilizing a of tools that delivered in the cloud via Azure. My recent Ui work was in react and I still use and and appreciate everything that the create react APP gives users and gives developers. Using great react APP with material you I, which is a implementation for react using the material framework from Google believe, of course, Dot net core web API hosted in Azure on an APP service plan utilizing storage, serving up images of speakers and user groups and conferences using a Sadeq website out of the storage account, of course, using azure sequel to store all of the relevant data. Implemented as your cash for readiness to cash some of the results that are likely to not change often cashing things for about twelve hours for featured speakers, featured user groups and meet ups and featured conferences. Also, utilizing cognitive search. So at the top of the page, there's a search bar that you can type in someone's name. For instance, you can not worry too much about spelling it correctly because of got the cognitive search tuned to allow for fuzzy searches and I've got a name that people often misspell my last name by a letter or so and it now, I still show up in search results. Of course, I plugged in application insights to make sure that I'm understanding how the application is performing getting all of my logging metrics on the edge applications ice dashboard. Recently, we had a guest one talking about get hub actions. So have been utilizing a variety of different get hub actions to build and test applications as well as deploy them to Azure all of the sources available on get hub and is open source and I'm looking for contributors. So if anybody out there has any experience with any of these technologies or has no experience in is looking to get involved then certainly welcome any and all contributions. So, let's let's go through mammy not one by one but but a few of those, you mentioned that you're using static website through azure storage. Does that mean that the actual web application itself or not the web application with actual site that if somebody were to go to it is service, it's just it's just html in Java script. So. Right now, I've got the react APP and the web. API application running on an APP service plan utilizing as the OS for those. And I i. do believe that I could probably also run the react APP as a static site out of the storage account. However, what I am doing is using the static website for storage to serve up the images of the speakers, conferences and user groups. Okay and so that allows me to just kind of throw all the images into a bucket and allow that to be served up from the static website, and that seems to be working really well, I am actually pleasantly surprised at how well it's working in I'm. Thinking about moving the the react APP site to that as well. I even noticed that with all of the bits kind of plum together amusing museum I was actually to back down the the service levels of the APP service and things like that that I'm using to just above the free account. So amazing the bare bones minimum that you can get away with without relying on just the free stuff. Right now, I'm utilizing the Azure websites dot net euro thinking that I'm approaching where I wouldn't be too ashamed to publish it out on a custom your I'll probably be looking to do that in the next week or two. Okay Yeah I've seen the side. I think it actually looks really good Design is one of the things that I've never been good at I. Think you said that you you actually paid for designer to to come up with the design that you have. I did I actually went to five. I paid someone for the logo design and I paid someone for an initial page layout design for the three views for the homepage of for a roll up list view and for details page view. So I'm still fleshing out how some of those things work the designers kind of took a few liberties in and I appreciate that because it actually. Helped me come up with ideas on how to make the site more useful for individuals and organizations some still kind of flushing a lot of that information out in a lot of the functionality out of still got some Latin text that I that I need to replace in several different places. So I'm still looking for ideas and suggestions on on what what people might be interested in seeing. The Let's say you you've got a lot of services. And you'll see I've got a note here to. I'm also looking for reasons to use as your functions and bought framework and anything else. Really. In Day jobs in working with clients, it's it's often very difficult to have a conversation of I really want to use this technology. Can I implement this technology for you? Regardless of if it's actually right for the problem we're trying to solve. So with these personal projects in in the evenings and weekends, this is the time that I get to play with those things. Figure out the caveats to them, figure out their their uses and purposes, and look for an exciting way to implement that without causing a client, a lot of money. Tasso so whether it's the right tool for the job or not since it's it's your project you can use it as sort of a playground and at least explore the technologies. And in the worst case, it's Oh that was a flaming disaster and let's back out that that solution in look for a better way to solve that problem. And now we're both on a get hub. One thing with the project that I've been doing is I. Am I am only using the main branch I'm not really creating. Branches because I'm the only one developing on it and I have a fairly clear idea of the next thing that I'm doing. So I'm not I'm not concerned. that. I'm going to have to back out a whole bunch of stuff. But it sounds like maybe you aren't are you are you making branches for these little experiments of to find out if they worked before you merge them or what's going on there? I am utilizing branches and this is a completely open source project I am looking for contributors of added in the contributors spots. I've added a contributors markdown file and and looking for anybody that wants to get involved of mark some issues as good I issues to pull in, and of added a get hub project that listening out some tasks that I think need to be done to make the application function. So. With that. Yeah I I am still doing branches. To enact some branching policies in in have some branching templates, available and issues templates available that can help a community get involved or help individuals get involved. That's another way that our applications differs that you're wanting to to stay close source in the event that it can be a software as a service project where I'm hoping that this is a community run project and want to get more people involved. Now. Well on at the same time, mine might end up having certain open source pieces like maybe the the new gay package or something but a lot of it I intend at least for to remain closed source. That we both have get up actions set up I only have a build action what all do you have set up? Soon right now I've got the project split up into two different repositories have got their the react project in a Ui repository, and the Web API project in an API repo. In each of those repositories, I've got a build and test action. So when there is a poor request started in order for that poor request to be merged into the master branch, there is an action that is running, build and test on either of those repositories. When there is a merge into master, I have a build and deploy task running so that I am actually deploying into Ayrshire into the Observer's plan for either the Uighur. API. At some point, if we get to defining what a milestone would be for one, Oh Deploy Mentor to Oh deployment, then I'll look into creating releases and the releases would be what deploy into the production environment and merging into master might be deployed into a Dev test environment. That actually made me think of something interesting to me anyway for the releases and the milestones. For my project. It doesn't matter as much. I had basically just call it. To release one is ready to release but for your projects since you want it to be full open source community involvement and everything I'm thinking maybe you don't need to wait for milestones but you could have you know smaller stepping points along the way. But when you think that it'd be good to get some kind of project goals listed and shot for pretty soon even if they were like, you know zero point one goals or something. I do in that. That's what I struggle with a lot is that I have ideas and in some of them are kind of vague and I haven't even spent enough time to really flesh them out. You know I'm working nights and weekends on this thing after everyone's gone to sleep I've put in a full day of work. So often very tired and really haven't taken the time to focus on fleshing those ideas out at that time in. The evening I'm more interested in putting in this little piece of functionality getting pushed up into get hub and getting it and getting the PR merged into master at think it'd probably would be very beneficial to sit down and flesh out what what even point releases would look like and what those initial goals are, and then I can better to find that for myself and I can better define that for anybody else that wants to get involved. Maybe we can work on that this Wednesday instead of the CMS Kinda, give insight to how at least we would do all of that. We'll say that a lot of this is just for fun and a lot of it is I'm trying some of the tools and tips and tricks and things that I'm a haven't used in in my day to a client focused work. For most part I I live in her devops for repositories for work items for user stories. But with the amount of involvement in open source and community out there on get hub, I've been watching a lot of of the live coders on twitch and see all their interactions with get hub. It got me thinking that you know I I don't spend enough time. With, get hub. So I want to make it a goal of mine to get more familiar with what's available out there what the policies and procedures are around open source projects in the get hub realm and I might be making missteps but I can correct it and I can figure out what works for me and what works for the project there that actually Kind of making a left turn at Albuquerque but. What license did you decide to go with I've always gone mit went on doing something that I'm okay to have open source simply because it's the no hassle license it it's literally one paragraph into just as do whatever you want but for an open source project like this that that may or may not be the right license. So what have you gone with her now I have Gone with MIT on both the UI and APR projects at this point I also created a media repo. So that's where the logo and the layouts that were generated from the fiber line of work So that's out there. That is not under MIT right now it's actually unlicensed at I would actually have to look to see what the default would be if there isn't a licensed present. If. There are thoughts on that. If there are better licenses to put something like this project like this out there than a you know all ears and look to have some some of that advice given to us. I think I think if you've if you've only had mit then because it's MIT, you're free to change it to whatever you want. At any point but I know some of the other ones like before you get contributors. You'd probably want to have a really good idea of what license you you ultimately won because some of the licenses are tricky to work around. If you decide to change them later, which is another reason why I just went close source because I didn't want to deal with you know. Yeah. I think that's that's all the questions I have right now although what is well if you feel like sharing in what is the azure website for this application for speaker me? So right now it's it's hosted on the Azure websites dot net your l.. So speaker meet DOT Azure websites dot net in the next week or two. Maybe before this episode airs on the Podcast, a might be switching that to speaker meet dot net that is the domain where the old idea project was hosted so I still have that They ll -able and I have every intention of making that the true public url. Okay. So anyone looking for it should probably just go to that one because that's going to be the official site. So speaker dot net. Yeah and if anybody wants to to look to into contributing of hosted under my own account, ovation twenty, two, slash speaker me dot Ui or speaker me dot API. If you want yourself listed as a speaker or you want your user group or community listed or conference listed than just submitted an issue on get hub and be happy to have that information attitude. Fantastic So. With that of course, we'd love to hear from. You can dear listener we want to know what you're working on what's keeping you busy on these nights and weekends where we're all at home.

Big Bezos is watching you

"Before we begin the show today a quick note about Kiko Dot com slash explained that. K- I W I C O dot com slash explained. It's a website where you get the chance wants to try your first month of Kiko projects out for free those of the educational projects you've heard about on this show before surely They're great for the young person you know the older person you know the middle aged president. Now what is age even check out. Kiko Dot com slash explained. So it's the mid nineties. Jeff bezos. This is working at a hedge fund believe in New York and he hears the statistic that usage of the world wide web is growing by something like twenty three hundred eight percent per year. He's blown away. How can I capitalize on that? How can I get in on that growth? And so he's thinking what could I sell on the World Wide Web. They picked books as the first best product of saw line making a list of like twenty different products. That you might be able to sell books. Were great as the first best because books are incredibly unusual in one respect that is that there are more items in the book. Category and there are items than any other category by far by nineteen ninety eight. It started expanding gradually and carefully to other categories such started with selling music CDs and by Nineteen Ninety nine it was selling home improvement products and computer software and video games and starting in two thousand. The Amazon logo actually had an arrow the points from a an ems onto the Z.. The an Amazon implying that they would eventually be selling everything from A to Z in two thousand seven. It launched the kindle one of the great things about electric books this is they. Don't go out of stock. It's easy to forget. How revolutionary that was at the time and this way before ipads it was the the iphone came out but smartphones hadn't fully caught on yet and Amazon has in the years since expanded into very large should fast-growing hardware business of course as we now know it sells online media? Ah Streaming services quite hall so it has Amazon Web services which powered so much the Internet. It's the back end for so many of the websites. In apps we use Amazon web services is arguably the most disruptive business in all of technology it has a whole foods which it acquired in two thousand Seventeen Amazon is already already pushing. Its own tech products between the keen Juan Baby Kale and it has a start up that I think we'll be talking about today ring which it acquired in two thousand eighteen. It's a reported one and billion dollar acquisition making it one of Amazon's biggest purchases if you are alive in the United States today. There's a very good chance you're interacting with Amazon. In some way it has over one hundred million subscribers to Amazon prime that's January twenty nineteen estimates are that controls about thirty seven percent of the US e-commerce market so all of all online sales in about four percent of all retail spending in the United States. which is just a staggering for a single single business? And if you are using the Internet at all you're going to a website that's powered by Amazon. When Amazon Web Services Cloud business goes down half half the Internet goes out? You can't use anything like most Americans will remain issues as Amazon. I something be it Books Bananas Back in Web Services this is asking Alexa. Something watching fleabag surveilling the neighborhood. Whatever unlike most Americans will thinks Amazon has way too much of our information he wrote about the host of privacy concerns presented by Amazon's everywhere nece for the website? One Zero Ellison Kinda got a pass for several years while journalism journalism and advocacy turned. Its attention to online. Advertising as a threat to privacy and Amazon was kind of untouched by because everybody thought of Amazon as the company. That just you know you buy stuff on their site and then it shows up at your door and what could be crazy about that right well. It got a lot creepy her in twenty eighteen when when it acquired ring and I think it has finally started to get some of the privacy scrutiny that the other tech giants get okay. Let's start with the ring. What's what's up? Put the service the ECOMMERCE giant announced. Yesterday it has officially closed the deal to buy the home security device company ring. It's a reported one billion dollar acquisition making one of Amazon's biggest purchases. This was a startup called door. Bought a change. The same to ring Amazon bought it in early twenty eighteen and by market research. It's the leader in the smart doorbell sector. which is just booming devices? A Wi fi enabled doorbell that streams live audio and HD video. It's lets users. I see what's happening on their property and even communicate with visitors even when no one's home ring is different from other security camera companies in that it has this social network attached to it. It's called neighbors is an APP on your phone where everybody in your neighborhood. Who has a ring device can upload upload videos of stuff they think is suspicious stuff they think is funny or stuff they just have questions about? Share it with everybody else in the neighborhood. So actually don't have a ring device at my house but I did download the neighbors APP for research. Now I get notifications. Anytime any of my neighbors saw. Something they think was suspicious. So there's basically now this like defacto dragnet on residential streets all over the country and it's growing so fast. Where does the ring fit in to the increasing increasing number of cameras we see everywhere we go especially when you live in a city like New York or Washington DC? Well what's interesting that the the ring to me is that it brings individuals like just individual homeowners and renters into this This world of surveillance and makes us apart part of it makes us complicit in. I mean it's not a brand new that we have the ability to survey people but it is new to put that in the hands of individuals into distributed muted in homes all around the country. I think that the geographic reach of surveillance cameras thanks largely to ring into other competitors. It has to have grown by a multiple audible. And if we're engine down the spectrum of Amazon's ability to Surveil US ring starts to get a little creepy and weird What comes next I next? I would put recognition recognition with a K.. Instead of a C.. Like the band corn sure right. It is the product within in Amazon web services which again M.'s cloud business. It is a feature that they sell to clients so these companies and sometimes it's government agencies are police departments and what does feature does is uses cutting edge. Ai to identify faces in photos or in video. So if you you have been taking surveillance footage whether it's with probably not with rink recognition isn't integrated with ring at the moment if you've been taking surveillance footage because because you're a Police Department Security Company you can upload that and have recognition look through it and compare it to to a database of faces and see if any names pop up see if there's any suspicious people there and so now we're talking about not not only being surveilled in public spaces all around the country but the camera without any human having to be involved. The camera could potentially be accessing software. Be connected to software that can say that will arenas in this photo and he was here at this time. And here's what he was doing then. A complicating factor. Here is that Amazon doesn't exist in just some private bobble where they exist as a company that aims to make profits as you mentioned Amazon is the back end of how much of our Internet estimates limits vary so if you're looking at sheer number of websites it's pretty small. It's like maybe five percent but if you're looking at a metric like traffic or popular websites it's closer to fifty percent. Yeah and they got some pretty high profile clients right. They do so If you use the workplace chat APP Slack Slack relies on Amazon web services. pinterest relies on Amazon web services. Net flicks uses Amazon web services. Now I should say that doesn't mean that you're being surveilled or that face recognition. She's being used on you every time you use Netflix. That's not the case That's that's a product that right now Amazon sells to a relatively small number of clients. As I understand it but Amazon does have grand visions for this and They competed for a very high profile contract with the Department of Defense the US dod to run their cloud basically to be the back end for everything the DOD does. There's there's a whole separate controversy over that because Microsoft won the deal Amazon is suing but the point. Is that Amazon. Their ambition is to serve police departments Home Security government agencies of all kinds. Well I wonder what do you see the future of Amazon looking like I mean. In twenty years they've gone from an Internet bookseller to the biggest company company in the world that has become integrated into so many of our lives. Where do you go from there? They are accompanied whose ambitions are pretty much. Boundless must and they're just putting more and more sensors in more and more places there's a product that is in. Its early stages called Amazon sidewalk where they want to build a new wireless Mesh Protocol out on the street for Connected Devices Sorta like a Bluetooth kind of thing but something that would power smart smart cities and smart stop lights and you know they. They showed a use case where you could use it to track your dog. If your dog gets lost can keep sensing it and keep the dog's collar connected to the Internet. So you can see where it is. On acquired hit wireless router company called Aero Ye ro and They have integrated Alexa. So that you routers around your home will be listening. It'd be it would be premature to say that Amazon is big brother because our Alexa devices are not trying to spy on US and end the ring doorbells. That's not connected with face recognition at this point. It's completely separate and all these things have some level of privacy protection built in. They're not not all integrated into one vast surveillance network. But I don't think it's premature to say that they could be and we should be worried about that prospect and that we should be applying flying a lot of scrutiny to how these various products get integrated by Amazon. I think it goes back to that question of where there aren't with being surveilled. Now where can we go anymore. Without the possibility that we're being watched that our faces. This is being recognized by software and I think the number of those kinds of spaces is rapidly diminishing thanks to ring and recognition mission and other products like those. It's hard to say precisely what could go wrong. It's it's more that I think Holden within which there is no privacy is you know that's something has already gone. And the specific ways that will play out remains to be seen. I was at a holiday party. This weekend were gifts. Were being exchanged and go figure one of the gifts. That was exchanged in in front of my very eyes was a subscription to Kiko and it got a little awkward because everyone looked at me like explained the gifts to this guy. Who doesn't there's no way Kimiko is and I was like I do this professionally? Not For fun on Sundays but needless to say The person who received it a father of five. AM The gentleman in his late. Thirty S. His name's Doug shouts to doug a great guy he He really enjoyed the Kimiko subscription idea. He's a builder a tinkerer and seemed like he couldn't wait to dig his hands. Into a Kiwi Co create. And the Nice thing about Doug with the five kids is that the kids will probably enjoy. The things is that Doug ends up making through Kiko you can be just like doug by going to Kimiko dot com slash explained. You can try Kimiko out for one month for free. Even that website. Decide again is K.. I W I C O dot com slash Spain or you cannot be like Doug you can be like Coleen who gave doug the Kiko subscription. Because it's it's sometimes times referred to as the giving season the season we're in right now. Think about Duggan Coleen Kiwi Cup will. It feels feels a lot like you're concerned about a dystopia future where Amazon can do real damage and that. It's a concern that most people who use Amazon services don't share. Let's let's freak people out. What's your worst case scenario? There's this movie that I think is underrated enemy of the state. It was pretty popular when it came fucking love. That movie with Robert Clayton. Dean was innocent. It's a great movie is so we'll Smith Gene Hackman. I think we'll Smith was like either rightly or wrongly identified unified as having something that the government wanted that the NSA or some shadowy government agency wanted and they were able to Jonglei. Identity is wrong. No framed framed named Jason Lee from like Jay and silent Bob Strike Bag. He's playing some hacker dude. Oh you know this stuff this runs into a lingerie store is is being chased by like NSA agents and will Smith is in. They're buying some like sexy unspeakable for his wife Bobby Dean we were Georgetown together. You're in helping. The hackers throws the thing in like will Smith's lingerie bag so he becomes the assessor of this like government data data without even knowing it and the government ruins his life. Yes in this facility. I'm so glad you noticed much better than I do. But this is so prescient because what happens. The rest of the film is that the government is able to marshal all of the surveillance resources in society that we didn't know it could marsh. We didn't know it had access to. I mean you know well we got preliminary CAM. We've got the police officer Cam. We've got two cameras but this is the one showing promise. This is the security camera at the underwear store freeze. They're and it's able to track him no matter where he goes. He cannot escape at sites. It's a good action flick but it is also I think a picture of the future that Amazon and other companies are helping to build. Where if you're wrongly identified or if you or if somebody's after your if the government is oppressing you you or whatever there will be no escape and we see real world examples starting to crop up in particular in China where the Chinese the government has been marshalling all the technology it can use to track the weaker ethnic minority and China is obviously a different country than the United States to the government is different? A lot of things are different. It's not happening right now in the United States but if we want a worst case scenario we should keep our eye on what is happening. In countries where authoritarian regimes are using access to all the surveillance infrastructure that has been built some of it private to oppress people and to track them everywhere they ago and to take away all their free and I guess you could look at these two examples Amazon the United States and just the Chinese government and its relationship to Chinese enterprise and say Oh those are pretty different different but as you related earlier Amazon is very much courting government contracts and already has something right. Yeah and in fact ring. It's a big prong of the strategy strategy to work with local police departments all around the country. I think the latest report. I saw them working with something like six hundred local police departments already. And when you think about it rings ring and Amazon are actually. They're much bigger and more powerful than these local police departments. And we've seen some great reporting some public information requests of documents that show. How ems on tells the police departments exactly how to handle everything what to say what not to say how to handle the PR? Amazon is basically directing these local police. Police departments on exactly. How wants them to us and talk about ring and it surveillance capabilities? This is might be a little paranoid. But it's like Amazon's almost like puppet master that's that's controlling the public agencies rather than the public agencies really being in control. Is the government doing anything to stop the Amazon to slow it down. I Guess Yeah Not much when we talk about digital privacy regulation. Were usually talking about that. Other kind of privacy the privacy privacy on your computer on your mobile device. That's where the conversation still is. There has not been a lot of discussion about how how to curtail the spread of surveillance and one exception is San Francisco House a law earlier this year that said the public agencies could not use face recognition Portland Oregon recently went a step further and was working on a lot said that can be neither public nor nor private uses of face recognition within Portland. So cities have been counted the earliest laboratory for putting some kind of check on the spread of surveillance but at the federal level. There's not a lot. We've got a couple of senators who are asking questions writing letters asking for information but one thing I will say I think regulation would be the most effective deterrent from building systems. That can be easily abused but I do think. Public pressure makes a difference in in my career of covering technology companies when the chorus of criticism grows loud enough when consumers actually start cutting product. Because they're concerned about about privacy or about ethical considerations the company's listen their goal is not to be evil. Jeff Basil's I don't think is an evil person and I think they would prefer to do good if they can but they are first and foremost concerned with building their business and the building new products and so the public has to help and the media has to help set up the incentives for them to not do bad the had stuff. We can impose a cost on being one Sunday with their privacy violations or were being thoughtless irresponsible in how they design on their products. I would love to see them forced to take it more and more seriously because consumers and the media and advocacy groups and legislators are taking it more seriously seriously. Obviously they're very grave concerns about privacy. When it comes to Amazon we've been discussing them and the company has received criticism? How does it respond to it? I think until he'll very recently Amazon did not get that. Privacy was a serious concern with its products. They felt that they understood how their products ex- work and they didn't see any privacy problems and so anybody who did just didn't understand the product and so they had this really dismissive attitude. I remember a podcast. I I actually asked Amazon's VP of Alexa. What's one privacy concern? You think is really legitimate. What's one that you think is really a challenge that you're working on? I don't really have one for a response for that. I feel There isn't really anything that falls in that category that that I'm aware of her. Focus on and that attitude has finally begun to change as some of the negative press about people. Listening to Alexa. Recordings has come out. We were ready with the feature. Sure within twenty four hours to give customers the ability to opt out of human annotation so I think we were the first to be able to offer that. There's been a couple of mix ups with Alexa recordings for somebody sent somebody else's recordings the first foundational thing and I know people don't always believe this but we don't want data for data sake at Amazon Azzam now Amazon the last time it had an event it opened the event by paying a lot of lip. Service to how important privacy as we want to build privacy into every one of these products ex- because if you can't trust us to keep your information private than we know you won't buy stuff but then it preceded of course to roll out twelve new types of devices that can track you in all sorts of new realms of life basically. I think the company is at the point where it has realized it has to pay lip service to privacy. And when you listen to Jeff bezos talk about this kind of stuff he says look. I know there are concerns but really. That's not for us to sort out you know. The the government has to be trusted to use our technology in responsible ways and one of the quotes that stood out to me is the last thing would ever want to do is stop the progress of new technologies. And it's like really the last thing you'd Never WanNa do. I mean I I get that stopping. The progress of new technologies isn't the ideal thing you know but I feel like there are worse outcomes that when it comes to Seville. Technology is just how every tech giant response to concerns about privacy. Like oh we're going to do our best. It just feels like they just sort of doublespeak around winded. Yeah because carrying about privacy too much would be bad for business. I don't know how else to say. I mean I think they I think they get that. This is a real concern for some people. I think that there isn't attitude in Silicon Valley in Seattle. That privacy concerns are overblown by the media by reporters like made it. We're just trying to scare people for Clicks by painting these big brother scenarios. That aren't really realistic. I think a part of it is that these are well off white men largely who are in charge of these products and they don't personally have a lot of fears about technology being misused to target them. It's not a visceral. Thanks for them. The idea that they might be on the wrong end of surveillance. They might be the person who's suspected of doing something that they didn't do or that they they might have a stalker. I mean this is a much bigger concern for most women than men they might have a stalker who is trying to track their location or threatened to do them harm. Maybe an ex- WHO's going to hurt them if they can find them. I honestly think that is a big part of why they don't fully get the importance of privacy personally for them. They're like what's what's the big deal. I get better targeted ads. That's fine with me bringing it back to an enemy of the state for a second if I if I met please yes That movie to the best of my recollection came out in nineteen ninety eight back when Amazon was still just an online book. Retailer and I gotta say watching it when I was this. Oh gosh thirteen years old. It felt plausible. It almost felt inevitable. And now we Kinda live in that future and you're telling me that you know there's a potential future where Amazon could be helping the government surveillance and that this is already a reality in China with the warriors. How much of this is just waiting until? There's a terrible invasion of privacy that there is a terrible hack that leads to all of our data being misused and Amazon finally saying Oh are bad yet I mean it seems is likely to me that that's where we're headed but what we're building is something that once it's built it's going to be really hard to roll back and makes a a lot of sense to me for us to be thinking harder about how we slow it down so that we can keep an eye on what the harms might be before there were in not enemy of the state scenario at at some point in the future and we're like whoops Will Remiss writes about platforms uh-huh Privacy Algorithms and online speech for one zero.

Is We get what is close to the source material. As far as wide butcher imagines what happened to Rebecca happened But we also As we see in the next episode get that complete so This episode so if I recall correctly opens up eight years ago at the GOP party where Rebecca is a social media handler senior digital marketing executive marketing executive yesterday's normal. I use in charge of hitting the whole taste book. The book getting the book faced faced in the book or young Young Young homeland or and this leads as such things due to. It's an interesting tournament a three hour trysts. Well you know what's interesting about the three hour aspects of that is we see in this one What is your name Madeline and homeland actually had sex not three hours hours? Yeah I mean I mean so I think the implication might be that they did a whole bunch of work and then interspersed between you know abouts of working were the short bursts of Whatever you call it? Yeah but that and again that goes to something I've suggested suggested before is that. Here's that really any evidence that this was not. Oh no no especially not from. When the video shows was her exiting does not look Like had actor like she doesn't look like she was aggressive upon she looks like Oh boy I better not get caught. That's the only thought and she puts on a shoe really calmly. She doesn't seem terribly disheveled and she looked like she was just worried about getting caught. It did did not look like she had went through a harrowing experience. Yeah I mean never wanted to assume what the one went through but yeah definitely. There's enough ambiguity in unit who leave US wondering what. We're oh I mean. I don't know I didn't think that was very much ambiguity. There Oh unity as far as the narrative win and been given it. Okay well okay. I thought it was. It was implying pretty clearly that it was a it was a good time. Well you know and again again. I never wanted to assume that because again it's sort of the situation where hey I can with my mind is if you say no. So what is what's consent when someone has that our give into it. That's not the impression it looked like when she exited. That room was running into getaway. She went outside. She leaned up against the wall. Collected ourselves pushing back on you know fixture tire. Yeah well it's it's interesting and but the whole crux of the biscuit is is that we see and this this is sort of the interesting aspects of this concept is we have. We have mel read and we actually get to see Mallory. I Guess Mallory is her first. I know not like our nose grace smelly. Oh It's race marry oh though though it is it is a news hour our she is really just as manipulative and as Self serving serving and as apathetic to the plight of others around her. I mean he did learn from her so he is a refraction of that A exactly I mean he is okay anyway. Sorry I'll So yeah melon. Malan comes into the brings into this world where it's like and where you almost get the idea that maybe I mean. We don't know what he was doing before but he he almost almost like this kind of interesting parallel between him and Him and Huey and the sense that they both had the person they love. They can from them. Manipulates that loss. A desire for revenge. No one question that appears to immediately is is. What is Mallory motivation? What was her defining moment? That turned her onto this path to go after the soups. You know it. Does the comic books give you any of that. Why we I don't know I haven't read the club? I honestly don't even know if Mallory is a character in the comic interesting to put a little DOT on the I. I really don't know and just watch the show. Oh Oh anyway So the question here is it's billy butcher a bad guy or person who's been hurt well and then it's sort of asking you to ask yourself the same questions At home lender exactly and like is he just like homeland what you know and I think well you know I mean we. We get the idea when lender visits Dr Vogel. Vogel Bom starring and Mobile Makes the point about when you raise isn't child without a raise. The gloves naked meet now. They're all parents she hasn't it doesn't seem to show yet so no spoilers for all right anyway it's interesting. They completely completely like played up the father son aspect there and you could see it coming as I go. I bet you that's a guy who raised him. Yeah I think that's the same actor we see from the other side of window our okay right right right blue blanket. You know his his push mommy rather than his while. Your Mommy Yeah it is. It's it's IT'S A. It's a difficult process for home lender but we also see that home lender especially as the story progresses how much he is separated from his own how much he sees himself as Sohar Har above the Mug as he calls which is a delightful obviously homeland or blonde hair blue eyes. Can't he the white right. Supremacist magneto yeah and even more so ease even like a himself. Supremacist thanks I mean clearly is more powerful than all of the other superheroes well to be fair to be fair. I get the feeling that this whole thing of his is going to backfire. I mean because we saw him. Because because here's the thing here's the problem with creating super okay Dr Manhattan is of course a A nut ackerman them watching. TV is of course a superhero a superhuman of raising power. He got that perfect genetic lottery. That meant that when he got the component Everything now when camp on has been given other people the results are not so much but once you start randomly dispersing camp on the chances of someone getting in something can become exponential and so this guy they've created who's basically radioactive man he. He's close radioactive man. Did that net the simpsons. Do I commend the Radioactive Man of China legit essentially China's attempt to recreate a halt. You know they basically exposed this guy dissipation you've got super strength and Super Power But then every so often he he gets to to hot and he reaches critical mass and explode yet. But this guy can just explode like that and it is just I guess by homeland or that the first time this guy explodes in front of him. Home Lenders GonNa Survive. Yeah yeah now now. It's like oh we'll have suffered all these other things before but also we have remember can't see through it. Seems like they said it was a long long arduous process and it was a lot of research and whatnot involved. A lot of failed attempts involves and then he's pointing. It's harder to do it on humans so I'm sure that it wasn't any program that did it for with children waiting thirty years. That's not what he said. What he said was was there were a lot of mistakes and errors which music created a lot of monsters? Monsters that eight style or yeah that didn't can survive. That's the implication right. But not that they were experiments trying just literally just randomly dosing. But we're getting ahead of stuff before that we've got the fact that the entire crew gets out messner basically just try and get back acting with good graces. You know hands over the phone. He wants picture he knows everybody. And you know from Hugh 'cause they already burned Frenchie but now everyone gets mother's ETC and they all got to go to ground and men and meanwhile the female is becoming human or herself and you can see how much that means and again. The female L.. Is this character who you're like. Oh man if someone is GonNa Utterly Destroy Own Lander it may well be the female we can call Kimiko now. Oh Kimiko yes to me. Oh is it in the L.. Interesting I I don't know if it is. I just like female Scotch some female but evidence your name is ago and the thing about chemical is she is and you know she has will bring healing factor and actually even more wouldn't that she seems to have immortals healing which means you can kill her and then she backed up and then it just becomes the question of what can break what might be one of those situations like Doctor Strange Indoor Mama where assist the repetitive nature term. Not being able to kill him kill her rather Drains him and he's just doesn't know what else to do. She keeps coming to mind breaks before his body does a new get. Like you'll get Mr Blow up you know again. We don't know what the homeowner can do against him get is I did. They've creation creation these quote unquote supervision. And you know again just to show how poorly thought out almendral Quinn Win was right. And I don't think it's far fetched to think that if they are in fact doing a dark parody of the Superhero John specifically typically superman that they're not going to have a Kryptonite simply to make a funny commentary about dynamic. Yeah and and for what it's worth. I'm I'm inclined to believe that she had. There's GonNa be something and we get. We get food that in the next episode a little bit but here here. I think I think then we're taken to maybe my favorite scene in this episode is homeland grilling everybody specifically starlight about her lapses in judgement insecurity. That was amazing. The way he he's he's he's talking to her the moment she raised arm her his eyes turn red. His face turned solemn and he says sit down missing. Heat his hands where I can see all my God that was so powerful. That was my favorites in celebres. But again like I say so much of that that is home landers hubris absolutely. He doesn't know how will start right in. I I I think he's beyond the point of even thinking that it's possible that something can be better than him. He's had so much time of every Dave repeating the universe repeating back to him. You're the best you're the but it's not even possible in his mind that anybody could be literally because he never had a super bowl like literally before this he was he was punching down the hole punching the mud. People exactly and you know you think about it like yeah not for nothing you think about. I won't use any modern references because think about like anyone at the start of the you know toby. Revolution the Communist revelers or the prince remers. Everyone who thought they were safe even going back to Going back to me which is actually after the French revolution but At GRANDPA when the masculine red debt and Prospero in his castle. Just assuming I've built this wall also and no one can see beyond my wall and so the death Gibney in yet here. You know it here it can all come in get and I do think that that is the problem for for for Homeland or is Jesus assumed. He can't be beaten but you know within that once. Actually this was. This was the thing I want. Cameras have you ever this story about like what does not for mankind Concept how yes he was able to keep World War Two raging for years. There's litter but he was still a single being set had to try and be everywhere and he's only do so much to try in trying in keeping going and then once an atomic bomb got dropped he realized how useless powers work and to me. That's the thing with with homeland demanded that you've created a character who is basically the villain who is basic common fun. I think there's also something to be said for the fact that enough people stay. You wouldn't want to live forever because you'd get bored. The mortality is what makes things exciting to some extent. I think he feels the same same way about having to constantly fight people that don't challenge him. Nothing is ever a challenge for him so he's not getting to flex his muscles part of him is bored and you know how people say like itself. Destruction is the more interesting path to people of a certain Ben and to him. It's like it's better than possibly facing death is better than having no challenge. So he's gone out and created a bunch of titans for him to fight and so he has a reason to exist so he's not just a poster boy it you know so he's creating a rogues gallery simply so the world does need him more so than to please madeleine or or to please the shareholders of what exactly split them on. TV The and sit down and lay down or go to your room. 'cause I don't need running around throwing things away or doing whatever it is you're doing right now. I want you to lay down and go to that. It's way past your bed. Oh sorry that's okay. I don't know what you're doing with that. They don't need to be watched. Just put them down anyway. I'm sorry I'm trying to focus on the show. I got this little odds. Never all right anyway. Moving back to the story at hand I think from there. I think we're taking too A training calling me. Yeah 'cause he lets him know. Hey I'm hanging out with your dear all pas you better get down here pretty quick or a run through faster than I did your girlfriend. Yeah it's good but just prior to this we get what is essentially the the Crock of. So what's going on with Adrian. which is that is bone density is heart is enlarged? He's basically killing himself on the. Aw on the on the compound V that he is not gonNA survive anything that he can't provide what he's doing and and part of me at this point was thinking it's like yeah you know the health risks are one thing but the risk of homeland catching you do it his way worse. DOC whatever you want so I thought that was gonna be the angle we were going to go that he was gonna get caught by homeland or no. I actually think he's GonNa know. Do you know exactly what that was my thought at that point. I thought it's like Oh boy homeland told you you'd be watching you and I bet you he probably was because again. That's what I get to about. How homeland just a physical beat right doesn't matter that he can hear You know part on in Tuscaloosa Lusa. There's a whole other thing involved with hearing part. Lusa are sue the knows what exactly. Yeah and so if he's not in the immediate area to hear that ripert note. What Adrian's doing if he's trying to follow a train he's not in what the heck agents I just meant as far as like you know when it comes to that meeting? He's GonNa be able to tell you know like just on on the right like if he sees he's going to know. Oh you did the V.. Well yeah exactly. And he's well aware of everything up you oh in. That is actually the story in eighth What was that were eighteen admixed? He's the one who tells top ball. Yeah Uh when when he you know it's so it's so great it's like he's already sort of on the verge and then when he pulls out the blue vial it just sends his brain into into overdrive and he's not himself anymore. It's you could see the league clawing its into his brain and all of a sudden. He's a different person. Yeah and Junkie. He's a junkie and you know any mother. Milk says I'm junkies did not get when I see the dispose. An interesting question like none of the soups. It seems are aware that compound be gives them their power right like. I don't think it doesn't seem like maybe aware starlets obviously not aware. I don't think the deep is aware and do you know I'm not sure who's aware what rank you know. I mean that's the question it's like I don't know of names aware not and basically I get the feeling from these things. It's it's an open secret once you've been around awhile but nobody else has tried to keep on enhancing their powers by using because nobody else is nobody else's Javid be the fastest man right so auto. If you're the your job is to be the king of the ocean right now as you're constantly yeah if you aren't aren't six other guys trying to be in the ocean your mind you know and as we see. It's not exactly a a prime dignity it's so funny. It's like the double double slit experiment. The photon is till you try observing it and measuring it and then it breaks. That's funny Exactly and and that is I think where were these guys find themselves and we see that we see that with We see that with With a train versus what was his name shockwave shockwave. Yeah you know we're already. They're saying shockwaves. Impact because does not for nothing. You know A trinkets a compound fracture again because bone density was so weak which means he actually was probably risking breaking his own. Legs will run. Yeah that's the other when he was pulling that train as like. Oh boy I can just because as as as disgusting it seem to watch was when the female cranked them with that lead pipe and had his thighbone sticking out of his leg that was oh that was rough and I was like Oh my God is discussing. His heart is that was to watch. I bet you they're going to give us another really disgusting scene with him breaking his leg every time he pushed. I thought it was going to break. I'm I'm guessing that the compound be you know that that that extra that weaken your bones. I guess when you're on it maybe it's like you know you feel no no pain but but the other thing is in question it's like how long has it been. Since the rest of the story progresses from the time that he we you know watches the female break. His his leg to the next thing raised in the train. Like it doesn't seem like it's been more than a day or two and everybody else's lives in his bones. Are Fused together already. We'll brothers that it's like that's crazy. I know you do in the V.. Because he is he's doing he's I just find it hard to even with the with with the that that is possible at all. Look how fast the few now. He'll look how fast chemical deal. Yeah I guess it's true if like if this thing is accelerating everything you know. It should be accelerated healing but it may not heal right. And that's that's sort of that sort of thing about heal. It's the deadpool problem the dead. Deadpool has awesome healing but his body never heals back is always heels with scars and bones. Whatever ever you know? He's just a constant use constantly torn apart by healing. And you compare that to you know Wolverine who kind of always resets back to fall the heels but it's always. It's always a clean deal in kit scarred. He doesn't get his constant regeneration. Doesn't lead to cancer the way that deadbolt and so I'm getting the feeling that if you're like if you're like chemical that healing factor is going to heal true but if you're doing being get yourself healed it's taking we'll ring takes the mutant growth hormone Serbian the old man Logan and he just he burns himself out you know but he gets super powerful that moment but it's going to break him out in that split interesting. I think nothing except for sewed What happens this year this another interesting question now that you bring and how healing works now Kimiko's case when she dies her body dies or synapses stop firing and then it's imbued with life again again electric charge or whatever? Do those memories go away and she comes back. Shouldn't it be sort of like if it restoring the factory settings it should be a new consciousness. Well no no. Because you know they're in the brain. Well Yeah I mean however memories are stored. Yeah they stick around. I mean if it comes into that basic quite it comes into the basic question is solar attached to the spot in. So it's like deadpool you know when deadpool dies and he dies and then he crosses crossed over the veil and he sees that it's his lady love permit and then immediately gets pulled back body gets pulled back in debt and doubt is essentially what did cool experiences every time. That may be what gives it the other way to look at it. Is it all housed in the body so whether or not the sole ever leaves or goes to another place or not but does when that thing comes back to life. Consciousness is still within it and that's springs to life again. Also I mean yeah and that is certainly a a fair question on the entire subject at the end of the day. I I like to think that you know set yet. Kimiko comes back and she's he'll still the same Kimiko the whole front that cheese. It's not like what she was was law. Aw or or maybe. That's sort of the reason. She's so messed up and doesn't like talk or above lies that maybe she's been held so many times and she keeps coming back and she sort of confused. I think that's a very real concept anything here. 'cause we see after she comes back that's really interesting. It's like after she confessed that on getting herself together interest like going back in May maybe it is returning to a factory default and now she's feeling and you can see and obviously she's still can't still can't speak. The ordinance is interesting because just before they break in for them he actually tries the and she wrote. which is you as I can make a noise? I can actually speak again and you realized how much I this. The compound V has her question. How many other beings in cages are there out there of it seems to me as a point of diminishing addition returns whether it be the amount of used or the body's biological advancement and its aversion to it? After a certain age this seems to be a point where you shouldn't be taking taking it anymore. Well it seems instead of making you gives you less dense bones and less more fragile body as opposed to the I. Oh I think so. Actually I live out on a limb on okay. So I'm GonNa say that essentially if you were to take the as an adult. You're GONNA get some kind of supercharged power but because your body's already established that power may well cause problems even if reduced from the beginning whatever whatever your body is now whatever does it well. That's the thing so right away. Compound seems behaved is generates randomized power and so when you are unlocked you know untapped genes that have always has been there but don't have the precursor to activate those jeans but again it's it's sort of like if you get if you get it as a child you know so maybe you develop these powers but if you get it as an adult he's power sort of Rush Anti U. S.. Because probably it's because you're not growing so you're not like growing is another term for healing because you're becoming a new so if you're constantly healing and the changes he'll into you you can absorb those changes but once your body's not no a longer growing you're not changing any damage that's done is sustained as oppose to adapted around so let me give you an example of that so they actually make the point in is that a train has to have like eight thousand three thousand calories an hour. Yeah exactly only molly. Yeah he's got to be constantly chugging so you could basically rocker. I was wondering what could have possibly been in that like what could possibly give them that sort of energy like what. I'm sure ethanol petroleum. Just basically a super super clerk. Wow No sugar is a lot of. That's why we get so much. It's amazing of calories in the teeny tiny box. It's amazingly powerful and the idea is that ah he has to take this business. Body needs it to keep the metabolism up because even though his body has evolved or grown up with this it has to deal with with what it has so so as an example if you give an adult this and he suddenly developed superspy. He doesn't have the energy stores. He's GonNa start eating his own muscles. Moving metabolism isn't going to be able to handle what it's going through so a lot of times. Yeah it is going to result in some kind of four epic accident. But that doesn't mean the person who gain superpowers. It just means that those superpowers than the curse. You know it's like suddenly developed magnetic powers but you don't but because you didn't grow up with it you don't know how to manage manipulated and just starts flying at you you for you. You know you suddenly have play and then split up into the rapid current dot. It's like all these things that if you weren't able to control it because you had it since a child it could be really detrimental like for example someone who just suddenly starts to explode and that's the success but that's also the success because that's all he needed and it was. It was simple power but again a scooper destructive power a power that maybe destructive enough to destroy homeland. That lender doesn't have defensive. Yeah Yeah especially if we start imagining that you know a guy that can generate that kind of heat within his own body and that explosion within his may not be be susceptible to something like he can cuss of course against him isn't going to damage him. And then you get this question. What does homeland view if he can't defeat this because we've already seen homeland have limitations to his powers or at least perceived limitations power? I won't say the jet jet. It's GonNa turn all these kind of things after he's the one that destroyed the jet. I I guess. Laser is wasn't the best tech now. It's actually walkout great if you can focus it would just do like who can do a sweeping sweeping laser item. It's like what did you think was going to happen. Or if you could use laser bullets as opposed to beams you know. Is Blink really fast. WHOA yeah well? That's the idea. And just put it on her up because he doesn't need to do a whole thing I mean is blake is really quick and he'd be like pupil as opposed to be fair. You Know Superman when he does he actually has control over it in fact he did that. I think the two. What's his name lack a Manchester Black? He basically La Vices guy released it using second powers basically. It's the it's the it's the final scene of the shadow with our fall. Where you know you dislike? Yeah what you've been talking basically but using my mice microscopic escaping vision and my heat vision x Ray Vision to sever the parts the nerves in your brain that can that allow you to control people's minds so so now you don't have superpowers as you were to Dang dangerous and it's like well that's Kinda messed up in its own way to you. Immune it's one of the most. We realize ooh maybe superman you know maybe we need we gotta be careful around him. Maybe lex luther is up one so that is that is the crux of this biscuit. But One thing I've talked about is the deep and man they're gonNa make you feel sorry for the deep yet. It seems kind of a little strange to me. Because like he's a superhero. Why couldn't you just push her off? He just sort of like laid back and let her do her thing. I know they're trying to make a point. You know but like I dunno now. It seemed really forced. I kind of well again. It's idea that you know any butcher off eventually and you know I get the feeling that maybe this is a problem. He's had for a while. Essentially you know when women when he is so essentially it just to give you the idea of like. We'll who was even before he became a sexual Predator maybe he the person who is never gets to have an intimate relationship Asian ship because as soon as he tries to have relationship it gets weird because he's got certain skills all over inviting and that's why he. He prefers the company dolphins or actually. I don't even likes Dolphin. I think it's just like they're not messing with his with his goals. Rose you know as I said the whole team with adults and I really like like essentially I got the feeling just just to give you a sense of it. If there's an arc to it that basically the IPE is in a constant state of sexual frustration. Where people are coming onto him in an exploitive the way that he doesn't like and so the only way he can have sexual release is yelling with essentially transactional relationship and that is in? Its own way. It's kind of sad situation for the poor guy even as we don't WanNa feel sorry for him because he's a creeper ness sorry an and Scott Alaska and Yeah that so. It's it's interesting how he gets his situation where someone just wants to be with them. Because they're a Bunker blinker show hill and more than that. She seems to be enthralled. By how strange it is and how much of a freaky is exactly like someone who goes to a location to seek out the person who flies their comfort others wrong with that issue should always be polite. When you're doing that's all I'm saying doc but going into that idea yes? So that's the situation legacy I'd love the fact they sentences I'll and they make all again growing up in Michigan send us. It's like the one part of Ohio that people in Michigan actually like an an except as as a good place Ads Cedar Point the Amazement Park And all kinds of its own little place and you gotTa love it and like I said there's there's your old down there and just the idea that he end you know. Just how devastated. 'cause he really wants to know he wants wants to run Wants to lead a group of dolphins in kidney to handle things and then you know in in the military and it's like no. You're not getting your your pariah. We're going to keep you alive because you are. You have value to us and we don't want you out there. I don't I don't necessarily think is that. They believe he has any value. They just think that the the damage that could be done to the brand grand by having him appear as one of the seven could be so weak. Let Him die. You can't fire him. All you can do is put lemon purgatory. That's the safest PR move. Well I mean I think the his argument would be that. Let me be a hero again. Let's we've we tried that but you're bad at it. Look you tried to save a lobster from the grocery store and with terrible well. He didn't say he was GONNA do it. And I don't know I mean like like you should like clan for the. He's just really inept at almost everything yeah and he. He really wasn't as if it's breath water. It's not a lobster backing billy ocean in Ohio. The best he could have done. This patent is headed edit ships and put Neil Input Nielsen the main before it wanted into another crap. You know I mean I wonder sometimes how he even got on the seven. He's lucky key that in an alternative universe there was a comic book hero called Document and they needed a parody of him. Yeah I mean that is actually yes yes I mean. Obviously as what argue you know. Three quarters of the paint is covered by water water based hero. It's sort of like you know it's never watched the cartoon take on. Yes and there was a character on that. Call the sewer ch and the whole time every every time you see him on on any they make him talk like rain man so definitely definitely you know through this. And he's like always this is like weird little guy in every scene But then there's one episode with a tick and Arthur and Batman were pettman well diff- Komo Wells in the live action 'cause that was yeah he couldn't use care for C.. Created anymore they were now probably a five. Even another Fox. Property couldn't translate them all kinds of crazy. Yes but They go into the sewers and suddenly he's completely it capable because now he's his environment. That's the problem for the. It's like if you was in the ocean if he was Akron if he had undersea kingdom right and he was fighting if he was an independent being fighting things in the ocean he would be he would be tapped. Here's I hero or even if other people down there with him to mingle with if there were any other human. You're able to breathe underwater even if they didn't have superpowers I mean like he would be he would never come out Land because he really doesn't like it online. I think he likes. I think he likes human company. He's a humanoid. I think he likes company. Well yeah but I I think I don't see if there was if there was a person who had gills also. I think he would be very happened. There was one other human being who had to be with him. You know regardless of who that person was a he would say this is all I need and I think it's this immense lonely and that's what we get from the in this episode which is like how dare you make us feel bad for this guy who is really making his own bed every time he makes it but at the same time yes he is also terribly lonely. It hurts me. That's worse but anyway but yet yeah so obvious. You know his say is we do get that. Put Your Heart. Because when mother's milk out the fact that look you know no I think. I think that they were absolutely willing to give us everything we wanted. And you fail because they couldn't give you homeland ahead on better And it eats at him and he realizes okay and he makes the deal they all get you know all their families get protected by. Let's see I can't be hurt or because athletes and burn but at the same time they all don't get care core and yeah I did. What do you think that happens in that situation? Because they've made the legal issue a non-issue. There's no reason to come back at the family so I think they're probably right well once it's well essentially once the super bowl powered terrorists shows up right and knows that next episode is at at this I WANNA say it's nick deficit. Let's hold out for next episode. Because they think that has a whole quality that would talk about here. I think actually even I know you know what I think. Asked me this episode right where we get the madeline. We're we're homeland or explains Madeleine that he was wanting graded them right right. That's a yeah. I'm you know when you went to the time it gets abusing but yeah so right now. Yeah because I think at the same time you have the fact that You Know Mothers Smoking Frenchie get captured. And then you've got to figure out how we can save now. That's what we get in the next episode right right right as he confronts starlight lighten she rejects them. And we see what we're GONNA do. Oh yes so. This episodes ends of course with Huey going to meet starlight starlight alone while talking Butcha shows up and shoots her with a fifty cal just standing I know A. Ah It's got us like a dumb dumb hitting them for the thing about it. It's like if you can be mad about it but everyone knows she's bulletproof right. So it's like yeah That was that but you know I think it was much more hilarious to meet that he had AH gun like that. He was shooting. Just just holding it up. Oh leggy if that's possible. That sounds so ridiculous that kick back on that must sp so insane. And he's not a super that seems like such a ridiculous concept to me. Won't you know I I have I have. He's not using it in fully automatic mode. He's he's just type rifle. There's no fully automatic mode. It's a sniper rifle. He shoots it with a giant fifty cal out of everything. You can have have holy automatic mode in Hollywood is taught me anything but I think he was what he had. I don't know if it was a bolt action or not but don't take a gun like that can i. I actually think it had a clip. I think it was not a matic and He was firing one shot in time. So essentially intially He doesn't he doesn't he. Doesn't shoulder it has. It's pretty much on a show. That's how he shooting it no I thought he hazarded side so that essentially it rocks back with his shoulder when he fires it gun that pathway just seems ridiculous. It's just selectors. I'm I mean I can't speak to that specifically although at the same time now for another people fire guns like that you know fully shouldered and you know I don't think so I don't think that's a thing you know you know what I was GonNa say this. If the comic book he it always that was one of those complicated things that was worth bringing up because it was so ridiculous. I guess I guess to me. It didn't look as ridiculous it you know. It didn't look like it was outside the premise of really. That's insane Oh yeah that's what happens there So that I think is the whole of this episode. We do ended off with own lender admitting what he's Don Madeline taking him back to her place and having some really disappointing sex as it were and the the interesting moment there also was When homeland tells her what he did she's facing away from him and and she turns around with this big smile on his face? And you're wondering you know. Did she take that moment to collect herself. was she sort of like. Oh my God this getting out of control. I don't even know if I can handle this Kinda. I was wondering what her emotion was in that moment and towards the end of the next episode. You kinda get an insight into what she's probably feeling in that moment afford gathered a southern put that face on my honest thought on it. I'M GONNA be honest is he. She totally knew about the whole prime Of course she did right. Because you're not taking count on V.. Out of freaking bought headquarters without. I'm sure they track that stuff. Yes he's one of those situations where homeland Like what he did to you know the girl at the computer desk and he's like listen. I'm home lender. You're going to do it and I'm sure people did what he tells them to and didn't say nothing but I mean I felt like she took a moment together I don't maybe maybe she didn't know I felt like she was sort of like trying to find her footing on new ground. In that moment I mean that is a possibility but I think that she turns lease situation. Again Oh of course of course At least although then she says something that this is one of the things that Vogel Bombs Vogel bums story is the it's it's an adapted version of the comic book purchase so in in the kind of version. It's essentially what what we see happen to Rebecca except in that situation it's actually there in their living There in their bedroom and then it happened and then only has to that that Rebecca dies and and But you're asked to kill the baby had to he makes the choice. The baby right. Yeah you know because it just killed his wife and it's not his kid right maybe in its own right. And he had sort of the precedent The moral precedent in his mind of being against also so easily justifiable the according to that narrative imprint remember. No compound view was actually a known quantity in the interesting part of me. Part of me names. It was sort the super soldier serum in in America right where it was sort of something that got created during World War Two and they had this compound that could give you superpowers powers. Isn't there something I was seeing video. There's another character in the universe. That was the original one because the Nazis did create the Compound v V.. And there's a character that is almost as powerful as homeland. I mean it's imperative Book problem that you know. Oh I I you know. I haven't read the book. I love what we're doing here and I love the story for getting and I'm looking forward to where it goes next Ultimate episode. Everyone and Do you want to get to the hardest. Working Person In show Biz today girls. I'm going to give my hardworking person in show business today too No I'M GONNA give. It was the deep on this who either give it to chase Crawford. I really feel case I mean he is pathetic yes but he lays it so tone well where he's clearly person who is just I mean he is you know he is definitely a guy who who played in the American pie film. Oh yeah he said a real MEM- memorable name. It was everywhere. It was one of these bond band. Kinda names yeah but he. You know simpler such coach a loser but was played so well by that actor and I kind of like the what what this guy. He's like if there was a superhero. And like just like how do they make me feel sorry for this guy. At the same time I guess at the end of the day. That's maybe the story is wholly. These people are the products in their environment. See I think you know with the deep. I think there's also a responsibility not to be better. That's the only time that I can find pity for you is if you're taking this constant messing up that you're doing and that you're learning from it and you're getting better if you're not making an actual effort to be better. How dare I have any sympathy for you? But who's ever be better. You know you. He never had an uncle back. And for what it's worth that is the that is the crux of the homeland or story. Isn't it is that he was raised in a Bob. He was raised without it. Love the why. Why should he ever have developed a humid right because he has no human attachment you you know? He is who he is. Yeah maybe it is a semi self destructive self-aggrandizing like I need a super villain the fight. I am so sick of random. You know random criminals. I have to punch now I want to you know I. I'm tired of having to kill some guy you know and just because I want to shoot him in punch back and and it seems like he is simply a product of our society and the little pockets where the bad feelings exist in all of us collect and coalesce and express themselves elves as this. But he's really a reflection of everything that's wrong with society. He's just every bad thought taken to the degree and I think maybe on some real level that all these hair down and we're complicit responsible as much as they are well. I don't know if I'd go that. Well maybe maybe not as but yes we we shoulder some of it. We certainly haven't made the world any easier but at the same time you. Yeah no I think that you know holding human beings with power who accountability is actually kind of in the vogue right now and really recognizing ising those great words Stanley throat that those with the most power have the greatest responsibility is maybe where society is moving evolving and in the story of the boys what we see people who never got that message either because even if they got the message it was then stomped out because someone else told them. You know whatever you want you got it and basically the child actor in Rome which is again why. It's so oh great to have Haley Joel. Asthma as as Messmer. A of you know the guy who was cold at one point anything he wants he can have and then and suddenly to have not come back and again much like the D.. Finds himself in a spot where he has the power but that is not visually. It's a really great power. In fact an amazing power that can be used to help billions of people but instead because because it's not visually satisfying. It doesn't make for a good a good comic book essentially Shuffled the side. Yeah I mean right now he could be helping us. You know maybe effect global warming Bhai Somehow using his powers to recap the ice who who A deep yeah. It's probably go that far. You know I mean He. He seems to want to protect the ocean but he also it's like it's it's like this thing he's not from. The Ocean has amazing set of power in in the ocean. But it's not like that's his home. It's like you sort of like. Oh well I can live here. You know it's like if you suddenly realized you could. He can alien language. And then he went to the that alien planet and you could like interact with all the aliens there but you yourself are never going to be you you know and no matter what you know. The the the dolphins there see you as an interest in track and the the humans back on on on your own. Just see you as a free where you go. You have no home because you are the world which is Manitoba's because how dare you make me for this. I dig it. My hardest working actress show business go to Anthony Star playing homeland that scene where he's grilling the seven or the five now and his confrontation with not only starlight starlight but his confrontation with Maven that scene and then couple that with the scene has with his quote unquote. Dr Father was so powerful like the little subtle Emotions that dance on his face when his father tells him. You're the biggest failure I've ever had like a contrast against the moment before where he's at full chest pumping pride saying I'm the Best Superhero. There ever was the biggest feeler. Have that moment landed actually hurt him. was pretty amazing and sort of like gives a little vignette into what his actual weakness is is his emotions. I mean without a doubt it. Just yeah I mean He. He was great. I mean you know it's you know it's the two of the spectrum it's the person who is Who is in in the sense? Both men are horrible horrible because they've lived their whole lives and separation from the world around them. It seems like one doesn't know what to take pride in and one has too much pride to go round exactly anyway. That is the ultimate episode. Take a drink of the boys Mas Nagy wrapping up the boys and a little bit. Then we're going to be looking at a new project. Who so I have my top before next show Joe? Ma's new have a top three. I mean you suggested one that spoke to me so much that I'm just GonNa make that all my three fixed. It's eight now because because you suggested Black Mirror and soon as I saw that as like Oh my God. Yes I would love to do that. That's such a great series raise and I. It's so ripe for philosophical debate about ideas of identity and morality and That I'm super super excited to get into these conversations nations so dark near is one of my blackout Blackmar lacking here. No that's yeah. No black is definitely one of the shows that I would like us. You do as as a pitch I think it has a lot of advantages nonetheless. It has this backlog catalog with no overarching story. We can literally pick and choose random episodes. Do we do while. We're waiting for as an example. The voice come back or who find the next year. We wanted it so it's a great to do the entire time that we're doing another thing when we can't points than we should come up with something else as well so the other option. This is GONNA be honest. Chill before for land. Lilla both wants to do the mental Orien- movement interest and also wants us to do the Laurean mentoring because I've been meaning to watch it and I just recently and I'm not a big star attended. I just recently watched rogue one because I got dizzy. Plus and man. Oh Man did I love that movie movie. It was so good it was so so good I think midst is doing its best up in its expanded universe. Outside of the entire Skywalker came thrown story fingers. Missiles might morpheus my a genius. Ask you never saw Moore Fans my disaster good people. Okay Yeah I mean it certainly. It does set up everything after empire strikes back love before not everything after agenda before the force awakened so it. Actually Ashley is kind of the rogue one of the the the final set of sequels though. We're still waiting to say we're GONNA see a baby yoga in that in that new movie coming on anyone we could see then the third and this is my suggestion. gestion it's only six episodes and it is such a move show. It's real shame that it's actually in capital because it is a it is set to a buck that's done which is good I don't know if you've seen it or heard of it. But Man Omens is amazing good omens is a film is is the series. David plays a demon of Israel. And the name of the actor who plays the angel now. So yeah that seemed really cheesy and cornball is it good oh it is it is amazing it is. Have you ever read. Ridden by Terry Frechette Neither Have you ever read anything by. What's Adam's okay checkers? He's getting out. Say Oh I did that. Yes a saddle guard or summer Ole care take. We'll see what they have in the new movie But we might even see store we probably can guarantee the reports goes up doc pretty much giving But so yeah so it's it's a really interesting thing. Is You like really. Here's the thing. If you like a flippant comedy about religion and God and a universe in which there is a guy in there is a devil and it's bogged down by Bureaucratic nonsense. This might be the. This might be serious for you. It really speaks to me because to me. The idea of cosmic bureaucracy is to me just the most recent idea in the amny verse always. Oh I see the the callback hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. Now I'd get all these things on this House Mc levels but then you know. There's there's a form on this trip and there's middlemen and people who fall between the cracks in where they live between the cracks. And you know when things run at Cochran end so I love good omens I was GonNa say Good Omens is my first pick mental Maybe second but then I had to put like as is like right in the middle. So it's it's a it's like one one and a half to you. Know is blackmailed. Because I love black near in the sense yeah I I haven't watched them out of curious. Episode Really Hold my God. Are you in for a treat Mike. I hear so many good things the give me an excuse and like I said we can pick random episode. I'll I'll I'll I'll follow any water. Say Oh we're going to do the season one episode three and we're GONNA do season four episode six. Oh yeah and I can come up with a best of less and like an order in which they should be washed to sort of Kasama them like the technology introduced informs other episodes it. Yes Oh my God yeah I that. I'm super excited about the only thing that I can think of. It's like a show that was is on Stars last year it was on for two seasons and it got cancelled but in my opinion it was the most interesting most exciting new show on TV with some of the best writing. I've ever seen unbelievable show the I was just a show that you know sort of a continuing narrative but it was about in the nineteen forties. Germany had discovered a portal into another or rather. They did an experiment that bifurcated our world into two so there was another universe another dimension that was birth because of this weird experiment and they have a tunnel where people travel back and forth and it was sort of like the CIA type Organization set up to trade information back and forth through other worlds and at one point there was a big pandemic that happened in one of the world's and it didn't happen in the other because things were as time progressed a The world's started being very different and a bug from one world to the other. A lot of people were wiped out that caused mass panic and they closed the doors between the world. News Seeker Acre travel down but the whole show is about the espionage aspects from one world into the other and you think about like this versions of you on the other side so think about the possibilities of different version of you coming into your world and kidnapping replacing people so all these sorts of things. It's an old school spy thriller because in the Digital Age doesn't come into play because the connection between the world is very analog So it's a very very fascinating show. It's unbelievably well written and it stars. Schillinger from ause. What's the actress name? who also plays J Jonah? Jameson inspire me Some Simmons and he is unbelievable as these two completely composing versions of this one character. It's amazing show called another life. No it was called counterpart counterpart. That's okay up. One of the best new TV shows ever Sadah got cats. But I'd be up for reviewing that. How many people have even heard of that show but more people showed act so our loyal listeners? These are your choices. The vote that you have counterpart starring Jacobson's you'd have the mandatory from Disney. You have You have a good omens. Describe the good folks at Amazon every project and they know that they've given No it's by a His name he's the Guy Neil Gaiman. You'll you'll gaming terry. Practice wrote that together and in beautiful L. or Black Mirror. Sifi this topic doc backwards.

GSMC SciFi Podcast Episode 276: The Boys S2E5

"Golden state media concepts side podcast. Together we dive into the world. Scifi science fiction from episode of star trek star wars to the resident evil all the science fiction movie from the factory marvel or dc golden state media concepts. Sifi pub. cats you'll never get science fiction the same way again. I just stay. Tuned been gsm size by podcasts. Brought to you by the mc podcast network. I'm your host alex. Today we're going to talk about the fifth episode of the boys season. Two i'm trying not to get too far ahead of myself so i still have not finished the season just between us so i'm very excited still to finish the last few episodes but i wanted to cover episode five before i move forward. You know if you end up bending them all kind of blend together anyway. So i wanted to take my time with this i. It's kind of nice though making myself. Wait for the next episode. I mean the show was already doing that. Releasing them once per week it was nineteen ninety five again. We'll see how. I've seen mixed reviews on that some people love it and some people hate it. There doesn't really seem to be a lot of people who are mad about it. It's a lot of strong opinions. You guys I for one am still undecided. I'm going to make up my mind. When i get to the last episode once i finished that and i can look back on the pacing and everything i think i'll go from there on the one. Hand game of thrones and shows like that have gotten us used to having to wait a really long time for distributing serialized episodes on a weekly basis and on the other hand we have shows that are meant for benching and are released on streaming platforms like netflix and hulu and amazon prime. So i think part of it is that in subverting expectations. It makes it hard to manage expectations. And that's why things are so polarizing right now you have people who are the big fan of the serialized. Tv shows that used to run from september through may on network television. Like i don't know why but the first one that comes to mind is the nanny. I guess i just have fran drescher on the brain. I love the nanny. And i re watched it a couple of months back. But we'd just suddenly popped in my mind. When i thought about that so i guess i looked at tv guide for that. A lot is a kid that was weird but things like that and then you have other people who like the binging format really. So i'm a fan of think it depends on the style of the show and the story that's being told. I will reassess that after. I finished and give you all my final verdict on it from my personal point of view. But i love to hear from you guys about how you think. It's going on facebook twitter or instagram. Hit us ed. Gsm see sci-fi and let's argue or agree to its more interesting when we disagree but overall. I'm open to arguments. As i move forward in making my personal decision so for this episode there is quite a bit going on. We get to see more of black war without really learning anything more about blackmar. There's a lot going on this season for learning a lot about a lot of different characters old and new but black noir just really seems to almost been getting left in the dust in this one. We'll we'll talk about it. We're also going to talk about maids. New brave maeve gay campaign. We're gonna talk about ashley. Trying to corral home lander and be the new stillwell avant as well as the outcome of billy finding out that becca is again choosing ryan over him. There's a lot going on. We're gonna talk about the deep. Getting married hand. Being in that colt is well and go from there. Stick around to our final segment where we'll talk about. That seem way storm. Front and home lander. If you've already seen it you know what i'm talking about if you haven't seen it yet. Are you listening to this before. You've watched the episode. Go the episode comeback. i have. we're going to talk about how this episode really opens up. There's a lot going on for both billy and homeland. I think that they are similar in many different respects and this season is drawing a lot of those parallels that we saw firsthand seven one so they are both feeling very alone right now. Their purpose feels different. They're kind of adrift in general. So it's a lot like that concept. No man is an island so even though homeland or feels that he superior than everyone else he still feels alone and it reminds me of that scene in ally mcbeal where she is saying that whenever she's felt the most alone in her life there were normally people sitting beside her. And that loneliness doesn't necessarily mean that you're not around other people. It's an internal feeling of just not being on good more so than anything else. Not being seen really. And that's how homeland or feels and for billy. Becca was the only one who really i guess saw him. She's the only one. He was vulnerable enough with to be his full south. I don't know how much of the and stuff back a knows about. But i would assume that she probably knows a fair bit considering her reaction to billy and the child and saying that she knows billy that he would try to ditch ryan as soon as possible if becca did bring ryan with her to run away right then and that's pretty telling for me. She knows who he is. Deep down as a person she might not know all the details about his escapades with 'em and frenchy but i don't think she's as in the dark as m m's partner was but she also doesn't seem to be as in on it as frenchies ex. Cherie was well. She enacts shia paramour. I'm not sure about cherie really. Last time. we saw her. She had to run off because homeland or was coming to find translucent and she had to detonate their house to distract home lander and that was way back in season. One now. mother's milk's wife. I think she's i think are married his wife slash partner. She knew about his history with frenchy and with billy because she was mad when he got involved in it again so she knows somewhat of it. But i think overall bekker's involvement and knowledge and reaction to it are all somewhere in between those two women between sherry and between ams partner and then if we throw huey starlight into the mix week get a pretty full spectrum of reactions from the people involved and their partners so i think that's really cool. The way that that lines up with sherry being more on the dark side of things and not caring relieve morley. What she's assigning people do whereas starlight goes to arrest huey the first time she really finds out about his involvement because she thinks that that is the right thing and then she somewhat reluctantly gets involved with the rest of what the boys have going on at certain points. She seems very scared for them and others kind of horrified with herself for what she's done this season. So that's a really fun exercise and semiotics but we did an entire episode on the semiotics square in star wars and the lion king and y'all it took a full episode to break all that down so we're not gonna do one of those today but i just found it really interesting to think about an wanted to put that out there. In case y'all are in semiotics. I love kimiko out but kimiko and frenchy aren't quite together. It looks like they're going to be game but they're not quite together and cherie was included in that. So i didn't include kimiko. Don't think they forgot her. it's just. She's very similar in some ways to cherie and cherie already fills that spot on the spectrum. But also i feel that keeney co is going to be more of one of those alternative positions on the semiotics square became echoes also just suffered a huge loss. She's lost her brother and that was her reason for going forward and for living just like billy's was backup now. She doesn't have any plans for her future. Just like billy. They are both adrift. And i'm interested to see how they're going to deal with that. Huey is also in a similar boat. He joined up to avenge the death of his girlfriend. Robin but now. He's really put that ball in motion and there's nothing he can do to stop it. It's way beyond billy and huey and any of the boys control at this point. It's beyond starlight as well even though she is one of the seven it's beyond her and there's nothing they can do to stop this so now he's having to live with it so he hasn't really thought beyond that purpose either so a lot of them had an initial purpose that has now been ganked out from under them this season. And it's really sad to watch. But i think that's why i love it so much. My favorite movies are always the ones that don't end the way that you want them to make long ruse and things like that or rogue one so. This is really fun for me. I know it's it's not nice but it's it's exciting. It's like a lot of those dystopia movies. The word for it's not quite shot and freud but eight probably somewhere in there. There's got to be a french or a german word for this. It feels like be more french. I think but somewhere in there is a name for this feeling that i have in watching these people. Come up against these terrible odds and come through the other side. And i like how dark they make it in the boys. They say it's always darkest before dawn but we actually have dawn in darkness as a repetitive cycle. And it just keeps getting darker and then we have a glimpse of dawn and nope. It's just more darkness. So i am really enjoying the cyclical nature. That actually does mirror how that works in real life and these characters are all dealing with it in different ways and that's largely what this episode is about is how these characters are dealing with their plans going awry and about managing expectations in general which is really interesting to me saints. The entire format of the show has been changed the season and as i discussed earlier i think a lot of it is deemed to subverting expectations. And that's why it's been so polarizing so that's kind of hilarious that that's happening with the actual show but it's just that exact type of meta thing that makes the boys so fun it's also what made stargate really fun for me. So who knows if this is intentional or not. I suppose we'll find out when we see what they decide to do with season three for now we're going to go on a quick break. And when we come back we're going to talk about the fallout of homeland or outing. Queen maeve and elena stay tuned. Want to find out what movies to go. See and check out the gs. Amc movie podcast.

Don't forget to like them on facebook and follow them on twitter visit. Gmc podcast dot com for more info just saved four the rate we were introducing where we are in season two episode five of the boys. And that's pretty much. The no man is an island trope. Everyone is figuring out that they are going to need help. They can't do all this on their own and they're searching for new purposes and meanings and reasons for living now that a lot of their old motivations have fallen away. although the circumstances are different for each of them homeland or killed stillwell himself and then found very interesting release with these recreations of his time with stillwell via d'appel ganger and then killed himself he killed dopplinger will get your loved him as himself a rather as homeland. Then we see that. Becca has been taken from. Billy but because beco- walked away herself in chose ryan and key macos relationship with her brother was cut short right after being reunited because von needed a scapegoat and they found that in kimiko's brother and storm front went ahead and straight up killed him at the end of that episode sir regardless of wind these characters are now divorced from their meaning and their sense of purpose. They're having absolute crises. Crises of conscience crises of self and their identity and that looks different for all of them. Some of them get harder some of them get softer. Some just flounder and flail quite a bit so it's a lot of fun exploring the different possible reactions to this situation with these characters this season. Now we're going to catch up with queen maeve and elena now that home lander has altered queen maeve on national television perhaps even international television. I'm not sure but now ruined knows that may've is also into women so in the last episode homeland or told everyone while they were on air and she was not prepared for it at all. He gave her no heads up about it and he did that intentionally. As a sick power play. It was super uncle of him. But you know that's home lender in a nutshell. So now she's having to deal with that and the fall of that since she is one of the seven and she works for what is that they want to go ahead and spin it into this super popular pro women narrative that they're already spending with their dawn of the seven movie and the girls get it done new promotional campaign so they've not consulted maeve on this at all though and that's the problem so they're supporting it but not because they're actually supportive of her but rather they're looking at this and going. Hey this is a new demographic that we can appeal to because none of the other superheroes are canonical gay. And we're going to go ahead and capitalize on this. If they actually had talked to me about it and discuss with her how she wanted to handle it. That will come across a lot different. But in this case in ashley and the pr team style they are just running with it and spinning further narratives about her life and the dialogue for it is not great the dialogue of the show the boys itself it stellar. I mean the dialogue of the movie dawn of the seven within the tv. Show the boys so we start this episode with seeing this scene and dawn of the seven where maeve is pulling a woman out of some rubble after a battle after something terrible happen and their whole dialogue has a ton of lesbian subtext in it and then maye outright exposition lee. Says i'm a lot like you i'm gay. Y'all know how. I feel about exposition. And i love that. They are poking fun of it in this way it is very true. How often comes out. It makes it seem awkward and we already understood what was happening and there are ways to outright. Say that you're gay or that you know that's what's going on with the story without going through all the subtexts first and then also overtly saying it. There's a lot going on now. Offer representation in media. That may be the first to say that. I am really happy with just over text rather than subtext. This is mainly poking fun of the ways that people decide to tell this and it also serves to further represent. How out of touch. That ashley in them are way. Maeve is an actual person rather than just who she is as a character and it's a tricky situation that may have the other. Soups are really in because they are celebrities southern living this weird public private life private public life. I'm not sure which one comes first. Probably the public win is far as ashley's concerned anyway. So part of maeve is maeve and the other part of her is maggie. The person she was before she became the character queen. Maeve and put that mantle maggie still the person she is when she goes home at night. And she's willing to give ashley the finger about the press tour but there's only so much bulking against the system that one can do with what and we see that done in different ways by maeve and anne and also a train. This season blackmar seems to stay in line. Everyone else though seems like they are floundering in some aspect whether that is them threatening to let h ringo and just telling him hey man it is what it is and him trying to hold onto his career in the seven or the deep trying to get back into the seven may seems almost be trying to get out of the seven so now that she's out of the closet she's also kind of trying to get out of the seven and we see annie realizing that the system is not what she thought it was trying to take it apart from the inside and homeland her is failing in a wide of his popularity polls but homeland or has a little bit more control over what happens then maeve and the others do so once the scene ramps with her telling the other character. I'm a lot like you. i'm gay then may visits home under. And he's watching the production real and says he's supportive of her and everything but it's very clear that he's not about it. I don't know how homeland or feels about homosexuality. That's kind of fuzzy. Because of his relationship with d'appel ganger and making golfo ganger dress is still well. And then d'appel ganger deciding to become homeland or himself in homeland has seemed into up until he killed him. But i can't tell you. Killing him out of joy or out of being upset could go either way regardless homeland. Lander is not jazzed about. What's going on. I think it's more of a possessiveness though than anything else. I don't think it's necessarily homophobia. I'm not sure that homeland even cares about that but it seems like something storm front would probably care about and i'm interested to see how that develops as we go along. I'm a little surprised. We haven't seen a confrontational not yet. But maeve isn't as nice as anne and may not put up with it as much super. Perhaps storm front is just dealing with starlight. Right now and deciding how she's going to deal with maeve once. She handles the problem at hand. Storm front is here to play the long game and so she does not seem concerned about maeve. In any way and maeve has been spending so much time with elena and also with filming donna. The seven and different scenes aren't necessarily simultaneous or sharing the scene with storm front. That perhaps they just haven't had a lot of time together up to now she's also storm front. That is getting some more time with a train. So we're getting to see them. Peel back a little bit at a time now. Once she goes to talk to home lander ashley interrupts them so that she can show homeland or a video of him killing these foreign terrorists with his lasers so he's lazard's someone to death and is very blase about it. Unfortunately it's been caught on camera and so now it's gone. Viral and a lot of people are really upset about that. He's down nine point five points and his approval ratings and homeland can't really handle people not loving him so he is really unhappy about this and it's finally starting to kind of light a fire under his but not necessarily in a way that is good for the rest of humanity and you can really get a good sense of his derision for these people to when he says the quote so what they're all starving but one of them's got a cell phone and in this case he seems more concerned about the fact that one of these people that was present when he killed his foreign terrorists has a cell phone rather than the fact that they're starving as homeland her he would probably be able to help them out with getting food and stuff but he's uninterested in that he's only interested in killing people and he would rather deride folks for having access to what he deems to be something that they don't deserve because they don't have more money than he is about them getting food in my opinion. It's not all that surprising. Not just because of what we know about home lander but also what we know about home landers base of fans and how they tend to be more conservative and how he's assemble of white supremacy in a way very similar to how storm front is but a different facet of it and i've heard that comment a lot from a lot of conservatives people saying oh well this person doesn't look homeless or this person kin afford a cell phone but they can't afford food. I'm not giving the money things like that. And it's important to think about those contexts. It bothers me a lot as a human being when people say that. Because it is taking a lot of assumptions into account and labeling values on a lot of people you don't know if someone was gifted that cell phone by someone in one of these cars that go by and give money people don't always just give money sometimes. It's food sometimes. It's gift cards. it's something of value. One of my friends actually takes hurled ipcc bags with her and she fills them with feminine hygiene products and things like that and puts them in a bigger bag along with some snacks and then she hands these out to homeless women whenever she comes into contact with them if she has razors and stops. You might put razors in there so that they can shave things like that. Also if you were homeless as a thought exercise if someone gave you enough money to go and have a nice clean warm motel room for the night and told you exactly to go do that. And that's the purpose for it. I'm not saying the homeless people need to use your money for what you told them to use it for. That's and finalizing and i'm totally against that. But i am saying that. This is also a similar scenario. Where i've heard people say. Hey this is what this this money's for and then that person goes and does that and they take a shower and maybe wash their clothes out in the sink or in the bathroom or someone donate some close to them. They use a couple of dollars and go to goodwill and pick up some more clothes and now they don't look dirty anymore because someone gave them enough for a brief reprieve from this. If i was homeless. I could totally see that happening. I could totally see going. I just want to feel safe and warm for one night. And i could really use a bath so i'm going to go ahead and do that tonight. But when homeless people do that and they base in a river or anywhere else a lot of people think well they're not dirty enough to be homeless and that really messed up. that's very similar to what homeland or saying. I've also seen people go well. That person has a cell phone so they don't need money clearly. That's not how that works. There are pay as you go plans and all kinds of stuff that are out there for people who have less money than everyone else. You don't know their story. You don't know exactly what's going on in their lives. And there's a lot of assumptions that go into comments like that. And i really appreciate them having the character of homeland or say that because he is so problematic that it helps. Underline how problematic that statement really is. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back. We're going to talk about how ashley wants him to handle it versus how he does and put an how billy is doing. Post becca turning him down to run away. Stay tuned tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts. Listen close and here this out he.

Www dot g s mc podcast dot com follow us on facebook and twitter download us on itunes soundcloud and google play sir just slow combat before the break three worth talking about home lander and his fan base as well as queen maeve and her new gay campaign. It's called brave hashtag. Brave i believe is what it is. And how ashley in them putting her through that. So they're doing there. I suppose damage control although they seem more jazzed about it than anything for maeve. They're they're spinning this. In the way that they want it and now that homeland has been seen killing a foreign terrorists with his laser is and not really caring about it one way or the other because this is his day job. Ashley is also trying to spin that debacle and help find a better outcome for this terrible situation therein. Swimming ashley's really stepped into a mess. They are down a suit because translucence not there and now they've also got the deep over in ohio's in dusky ohio so they were the five already and then you know now. They're deciding to put storm front in there but they are still missing a person and you also need to make sure everybody's engaged but maybe it's kind of disengaging and something's gone a train. It looks like they're pushing him out. So there's a lot of chaos going on with just replacing people and it's just like a presidential cabinet change or any other type of regime change. There's all these spots on the seven. That have gone empty within ashley stepping into this governing role for it. And it's a lot to do. She's more comfortable with pr stuff. So that's mostly what she's handling. Especially since home. Lander has outright threatened. Her and she's pretty freaked by that and rightfully so so poor ashley. Is you deal with all this. But it also reminds me a lot actually of supreme court nominations and also appointments to a new president's cabinet so whenever you have that change you have a lot of changes that go into deciding. Who's going to be your counselor for which things some people don't get changed at all and others get changed completely doodoo reasons. And with this. New supreme court justice amy coney barrett having been confirmed this past day. It is heavy on my mind. So mr edgar was always in charge. Ultimately madeleine did that she did excellently so he didn't have to micromanage her but he still had final say on anything if he wanted to. But now he's more directly involved. And ashley is doing her best but is also having to deal with homeland her on the other side. She's kind of a ping. Pong ball. Caught between mr edgar and homeland. So who really has the reins on this. I'm not sure is storm. Front working for mr edgar mr. Or is he working for her ultimately. I am very confused about where that's heading. But i like that because that means there's still some mystery in there so ultimately who is appointing these people to the seven. I'm not entirely sure to be honest. Ashley seemed to have an idea. And i suppose mr edgar approved it. But mr edgar also seems to intuitively know who homeland or is as a person and how he ends so i would not be surprised if they use that guy as a pawn to sacrifice him essentially knowing that homeland or might react any potential way possible and engaging from that how strong their response needed to be. Mr edgar and storm front are characters who seem to play chess and homeland or isn't even really playing checkers. He's more like it was like. He's playing bowling really like homelands bowling. The rest of them are playing chess. It is an odd combination that i live for mitt even though homeland gives ashley a hard time he's ultimately not in control. Ashley tries to help him with the response. He should give to the outcry about him. Just callously killing this person and saying. Hey you need to do and no comment at this time. And then we're going to do an acknowledgement apology. An action which is very similar to how a lot of pr firms really do run. That's a pretty popular. pr response. It's also what they had the deep doo and it was more noticeable with the deep up to the action part so that part was bought taking action rather than the deep. They just moved him somewhere. And we're hoping people would forget about him until they go ahead and replace him. It seems i'm not entirely sure what madeleine's long game was for. It and his post will never know now that she is dead but homeland is not going to listen to madeleine's directive. They're not going to be taking that approach because he doesn't care what they have to say and storm front tells him you know. Hey i know how to handle this. And i'm here when you want me. And as soon as she that phrasing. I knew where we were going goal. Talk about that in our four segment now. Meanwhile at a music club or dance cluber bar something. Billy's at some kind of music venue and is smoking cigarettes and drinking a lot of booze and then heads to the mosh pit so that he can start a fight but it doesn't seem that he really wants to beat up other people he wants. The absolute crap kicked out of him instead and he seems pretty content to handle this. If billy just wanting to beat up some people he could have just picked a small fight outside with some bikers or something but billy decided to get his but like literally kicked when he's on the ground in the fetal position but we are very happy about it while he is literally getting kicked by a bunch of people in this crowd because he's gone too far in the mosh pit. But i think billy really just needs to feel something right now. He feels absolutely devastated and dead inside and has lost his reason for being. He's lost his purpose and everything and before he knew becca was alive there at the end he was willing to just die. He thought she was dead and he was going to die trying to take homeland out with him but he also knew that homeland her very well might survive that bomb so it was really more about billy killing himself in a flashy fashion and trying to take home. Winder him if at all possible now he is absolutely floundering and he doesn't know what to do. He's not even at the point where he's necessarily going to kill himself anymore. This is uncharted territory for billy. I don't think that ever in a million years. Would he have envisioned the possibility that he would find becca and she would not want to come back with him. But billy's out buying some frozen peas or something to put on his beaten up face when he gets a call from huey now frankly. I am surprised that billy does not have broken ribs at this point considering the everyone was kicking the crap out of him on the ground like at least eight people made contact with their shoes on billy. It's a metal concert. Lots of these people wearing boots maybe even steel toed boots and he he had the crap kicked out of you guys but he seems fine in that capacity. Doesn't have much wrong with them. Other than you know. A bunch of bruising and and blood but i was expecting like missing teeth or something. Now i get it missing. Teeth are not typically considered to be super sexy so maybe they decided not to do that. To karl urban because he's underground and doesn't have time to find dentists at this point in season. Two who knows. I thought he was a little bit less. Messed up then. He should after all that especially considering how quickly he went down because he wanted to get his butt kicked rather than get anybody else but he calls billy while he is out there picking up something frozen to help with the pain and swelling of his wounds on his face and huey admit stability that he's not mad at him for putting becker i that he understands why billy hit him and why billy had to leave to go and try to find becca and that's a really big point for the two of them but then he also lets billy know what they found out and that is that on that road trip starlight and huey and m found out that storm front is liberty who appears to be an immortal racist now. She's definitely a racist. The appears part for the immortal component. So we're not entirely sure. How old liberty slash storm front actually is but they've been around for a really long time. They were already an adult and part of the precursor to the seven in the fifties. So they've been around a very very long time so they may. Well be an immortal racist. And he also tells billy that it's very likely that storm front is responsible for susan's murder now. The head exploding thing. That doesn't seem to be one of storm fronts powers but they think that she was the driving force behind it especially seeing as susan's file had notes about liberty and stuff in there so while they're doing this billy's also shopping for a pet toy and that seems to be a little bit of feel because we haven't seen a dog except for in his episodes that were flashbacks tobacco. So you're like what the heck but he's he's getting a dog toy i suppose and then. He tells me that he was always like his canary. Look a canarian coal mine. Alerting him that he's maybe gone too far things like that and he then says he's gonna get off the grid and he leaves and he crushes. That sim card. Said no one can follow him and billy was just very nice really at that point which is a red flag for huey and he communicates that the mother's milk who also is like that is definitely a red flag. Where is he so they ought to find him and it turns out that he is at the house of his aunt and says he doesn't wanna talk to his parents so we know that billy's parents are alive but that his dad has a terminal cancer but he mostly just wants to be at his aunt. Judy's house to pay judy. 'cause she seems pretty cool billing but also she's been keeping his bulldog terror said the bulldog that we saw with him becca before is still alive and his aunt had him for a while. So billy goes it. Take terror for a walk and opens up to the dog a bow his loss of meaning in life. And he's like you know. I spent nine years trying to do all this and why. Why did they do that. All that effort i put in there all the terrible things that have done have been done to me all the loss that's happened for me and the people around me malary's grandkids and everything and for why like. Why was i involved in this at all. Because she doesn't even want to come with me so it's a lot for him but it's nice to him talking to the dog and when he gets back from the walk he sees mother's milk and huey there so they figured out that he was visiting the dog at his aunt's house and they won't leave without him so he goes to leave but when he starts to back up the car he sees blackmore watching in the rear view mirror and so he goes back in the house and tells everybody and there's nothing much they can really do. They start closing the blind so he can't see them and creating booby traps. Bet i mean we think black nor can't see everyone who knows if he has infrared or anything else in there. We can't see any of his face. I don't know if his goggles do anything other than make sure we can't see his eyes so they do all of this and then they know they're not going to be able to leave and billy wants to go out there and fight himself but they're not leaving without him and they're not gonna let him sacrifice himself that way they understand that he is in a deeply depressed and vulnerable state following this huge loss of a concept of shared future with becca. So they're not gonna let him do that because that is definitely a suicide mission. It's not gonna protect them really from black war. It's just gonna get billy killed so they go ahead and sco to hide in the basement and mother's milk calls in a gas leak scare so that way blackmore can't come in there right then and kill them all. They are able to be protected. Because there's so much media and firemen and stuff there so remember the rest of the world doesn't know that the seven are some of them at least bad guys that they kill people when it's unnecessary and things like that. They still think that they're above board authoritarian figures and that's still super problematic and it's very similar to how a lot of folks feel about police officers nowadays so they go ahead and make sure the he at least can't get them while they're waiting there and i've seen this trick played out before on stargate. St one. when born and jack go to senator kinsey house and kinsey wants to send the an idea in them after them but he's having a really big party at his house and so jack and mayburn ended up calling the cops and stuff over to kizzee's so that they can walk out casually and leave because that would be bad press for kizzee's reelection and they use that against him. So this is very similar to that and i delighted in it. That's one of my favorite scenes from stargate and normally i'm not super into the episodes with kenzi but that was just so well played by jack and mayburn that i loved it and these guys are widely like that too so they call in a gas leak scare and fill the neighborhood with a presence of a lot of people who could take pictures of them. Even if it's not firemen the neighbors will be out there looking at everything and everyone has cell phones nowadays as homeland already lamented earlier. The boys do end up. Still having to confront blackmar later on dog gives way where they are. It's okay tear still a good boy but they ended up getting knifed so mothers note gets a dagger and then he's about to be absolutely crushed by a blackmar win. Billy tells blackmore that if he kills them then they automatically are going to send out media from the cloud to the media of becca and ryan existing so that everyone will know that home lander has raped someone and also that that's resulted in a child. So right now. Ryan is a super top secret government experiment. He wasn't intentionally created but they're definitely capitalizing on that and holding them prisoner after all home. Didn't know about them to a little bit ago so it wasn't homeland or holding them captive for the past nine years it was the government so this is something they really don't want and by the government i don't really mean the government proper. I don't think it's bought. Its this capitalist government business military industrial complex conglomerate type creature that is really keeping them from telling them stuff so he knows it would be bad. Pr and billy is telling this to black war. But when he does. This black noir actually has a camera in his armor and we see that that was revealed when mr edgar calls billy and starts talking to him and he's saying hey you know. I heard everything that you just said. And i'll let you go if you get rid of that evidence. Blackmore won't kill you as long as you don't release that info so how about that. They probably don't have actual evidence of it. They just have the location and that's about it. He couldn't even commence back to leave with them so they don't necessarily have actual evidence that also. It's a very ballsy move. Considering that the best way to get rid of that evidence would just be to kill ryan becca and billy's really bank and hard on the fact that they're not going to want to cut their losses on that so soon. So this kid's longitudinal study. He's only nine years old right now. They don't know what's going to happen with him as he grows older. Because he's the first superhero that has been born and not made the black noir. Under mr edgar's orders ends up letting them go. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back. We're going to wrap up where starlight and storm front and maeve a train. Everyone else's we're going to talk about where everyone else's we'll be back in just a moment. Watching tv has changed over time. Streaming has become the new norm. That's why golden state media concepts television. Podcasts dobbs headfirst to the world of cord cutting wants to be on the loop of. What's hot and netflix. Or if it's not a preference what about original shows in hulu we've got you covered. Join us as we fill the blank and talk about movies to stream and what show. You should be binging. This is a golden state concepts television. Podcast i four the break in about billy and how he is trying to blackmail black warn only for mr edgar to call him and tell him that he'll let them go if they don't release any of that footage for mr edgar. That's about as good as it gets. He's going to have some more time to think about what to do. And i am afraid of where that's going. It seems that black war works directly for mr edgar. I don't really know though. He's giving me vibes like the mountain. Did when the mountain worked for saraswati after she turned him into like bazamba. Form of the mountain blackmar seems to just do what. He's told he seems very much like an auto on just like the mountain and just like the wind up guy from hell boy. I've really got a google that character's name keep talking about him and i don't remember his name but you know who i'm talking about so that's where we're at and now we're going to catch up with the rest of the characters so we don't know anything more about black war other than that. He has a body cam on and that mr edgar is able to see everything. He does and respond in real time. Keep in mind. This was not just anyone who picked up. We know they have tons of technicians in there. But this was mr edgar himself so i also wonder if blackmore is even human underneath all that. I don't know if that would pop up with homeland or though since home. Lander has that super hearing and can definitely hear people's pulses and link counter heart rate and everything really quickly. I don't know what we go on there. Bet i guess we'll find out later on. I liked it. They're building the mystery of blackmore though so a lot of people have expressed some dissatisfaction with him. Not getting more screen time or knowing more about him. And they're like we're. We're not learning anything. Nothing's building they are building. They're building anticipation. And i am stoked to see where they end up taking it so with. Billy and the boys now weaving from their aunt. Judy rather billy's aunt judy. He gets the dog terror. A little home lander toy because the dog likes to hump of stuffed animals and so the dog gets all over that home. Toy and billy is very childishly. Amused by that. There's some jokes that will always be funny. I suppose like fart jokes and billy is just really amused by this in. What's otherwise a really dark time for him. His dog still bringing joy. And i think that's beautiful and sweet. He meco has started killing for higher. So she's a mercenary right now in her grief and there is actually an anthropological story. That's associated with that in my mind so in school i major anthropology and we read this article written by anthropologists named rinaldo result. Oh and it was called grief and a head hunters rage and it was a bow resolve does experience in the philippines amongst the along people and part of their rituals in their culture was that they beheaded people and celebratory rituals that related to grief and he couldn't really understand that at first while he was over there he couldn't get why people would really go on. These hunts to go and behead other people just because they were sad but during his excursion to the philippines his wife died and that emotional impact really helped bridge that gap between the observer and the culture. He was observing that emotional component for result. Oh in his own. Words helped him to understand the reasons why people did it and the motivations that stem from grief so he is understanding because his wife is dead and he doesn't have any where to place those feelings that it's easier to turn it into rage and how cathartic that can be to have some sort of resolution to the emotions that you're carrying that are super heavy and he uses it for an argument for going towards more of an emotional understanding. In addition to an intellectual one traditionally with ethnography going and watching another culture and writing about it there's a lot of detachment involved historically anthropology and so for renault resolve. Oh this weighs a brand new approach for looking at it. He was for once not able to understand something as a cultural anthropologist and an outsider with the detachment and it was only when he became attached to the subject that he was able to truly. It's a really great article. Told his own words. If you guys are interested that is renato. Resolve those article grief and a head hunters rage and you can find that for free online thence very similar to how we find kimiko and this episode. She has a rage born from grief as the along and renato result. O- refer to it. This is her way of carrying her grief and carrying her anger. She is distraught at this loss of purpose in her life and motivation and love the loss of her brother who she had had to kind of in prison with the boys to hand over but he ultimately came back for her. He protected her and saved her when they were running from dot in the tunnels and subsequently on the rooftops. The reason that he's dead is because storm front was going to kill her and he came back for her. So she has a lot of guilt and survivor's guilt as well she also has a lot of grief surrounding him turning to shining light and embracing that ideology and she just feels like she's lost her brother in so many different ways over the years and this is too much for her. And it's easier to take that spirit of vengeance up just like that's cow. Huey started stepping into being who he truly was. Instead of worrying about other people it was robin's death and his subsequent rage that helped him make that decision and started moving him along in his life. It helped him to understand. Billy in many ways to but that head-hunter rage is what billy has just lost. So he's lost his vehicle for carrying his anger and his grief because he's found becca actually alive and she won't come with him. Suic- kimiko starting down the path that billy was already far down by the time we met him in season. One and this is super alarming for frenchy. He seen this happen to people and he does not want to see that happen to somebody else. He loves and he does deeply love. Billy i think that he and m. both do or they would not have gotten involved in these shenanigans with him again. To begin with they were all still quite upset with each other at the beginning of this when billy reunited the boys and i don't think that this is another loss that french. She is willing to take and that he is capable of taking with his own heart. But that's where kiko is heading. And so he finds her in a church with cherie frenchies old paramour end. Cherie is giving kimiko hitman assignments from the albanians for really upset with her about that at both of them and he wants kimiko to stop and he tells her you know. This is poison for your soul. I know that. And she gets mad at him and doesn't want to go along with him or stop what she's doing. Because she's mid head-hunter rage she's mid grief and so frenchie tells her to go and be a monster then and he leaves i think both of their perspectives on this. Really tug at the heartstrings. I can understand in some ways how kimiko would want turn that into rage and just be angry all the time instead of feeling the pain now whether that's from grief from the loss of a friend or a partner or a family member or from the loss of his sense of self report of yourself from some sort of event that was traumatic in your life like what happened with anne slash starlight when her idea of what being one of the seven was ripped away when the deep sexually assaulted her and how that slowly grew into a rage until she went off on people on national television. She went off on her mom. She went off the deep sh went off on bought. And just kinda lawsuit a little bit. That's very similar to the head hunters rage but she is somewhere else on that spectrum for her head. Hunting isn't an outlet for it but she's done kind of a symbolic equivalent of it in outing. Everyone at the believe expo but by viewing it through the grief and a head hunters rage lens. That scene really got me frenchie. Just being distraught about having to watch somebody else go down that alley and also having probably been down at himself in addition to having billy do it. It's just too much for him and he's tried everything he can to help her but she's trying to communicate with him now but he can't understand her because she's talking with her hands in language that seemed to be something just between she and her brother. It doesn't appear to be. Asl or anything. Like that from what. I've gathered in the show. So he's still just as confused and so he gets more frustrated. She gets more frustrated and get more angry as that frustration and the grief builds into anger. And it's explosive but it's also not quite gutting but it did really tug on my heartstrings. I don't have a better way to put that right now. I didn't cry or anything. I'm not Prone to bouts of weeping judgement on people. Who are i love it when people feel are fulfilling and frenchy would also support the heck out of that but i did feel it deeply. And if you haven't read grieving head hunters rage highly recommended so she decides to go and do that and they part ways but eventually. I think that she'll stop. I don't think she's gonna continue down this path. Her rage burns brightly. But it's going to burn out quicker. I think than billy's dead. Because billy's rage was a stew right and hers is more of a flash fire so this just happened to her was really quick and she has the means with her new powers to go ahead and kill people right now. She has means to kill people who were involved in it right now whereas billy had to wait for years for vengeance for becca ultimately kimiko will still want to kill storm front for what she's done but i think she's going to have a long time to think this out. Before it gets there it will be extended out. But i think she's gonna be more strategic about it than billy. Once she gets past this initial stage of rage. We also see a train getting booted from the seven so just like they wrote maeve sexuality in to the story of the dawn of the seven so the movie within the show. They're doing the same thing with eight trains exit. They've decided that since homeland or definitely peeped him in the tunnels having to catch breath and everything and having heart trouble following his abuse of compound v that they're going to go ahead and get rid of him they're going to replace him with someone who is also fast and just call a day. They're going to do a one for one swap. It reminds me of what they call the dick's switch in the tv show bewitched and it's dirty as it sounds. It's not dirty at all in fact so after season five and bewitch they were placed the guy who played darren the husband and originally was played by dick york and he was replaced by dick sargent. So that's why they call it the dick switch because they were both had the same first name but they just changed out a main character in the middle of a show and a lot of people. Just roll with it. And that's what they are saying. They're going to do to train. It's just like the dick switch well except the part where dick york. i believe. It was actually really ill at the time. He had a lot of health issues going on and collapsed on set and that's why they ultimately ended up needing to replace him. Although now that i think about it that is really similar to what's happening with a train. I don't think the dick york necessarily fired though. I'm not sure. I don't have all the information on that. I'm not going to pretend that. I i won't lie to you guys but It was because of health reasons and so they replace them with someone who is incredibly similar and that seems to be what they are also referring to in this at least from my perspective. So they're trying to work him out of this though and he's doing an exit from the seven at least and they want him to say these lines but he hates the dialogue for it and he thinks it's two x. positional and. I appreciated him saying that but he also wanted to leave it a little bit more open ended so he could perhaps come back some time and give himself some wiggle room for figuring out what was going on here and find a way to stay in. But ashley just tells them. Hey you can take your severance package and your dignity. Or we can fire you for breaching your contracts morality clause because you took compound v as a street drug and you had a heart attack from it. So they're blackmailing him. For being an addict. So ashley or trash. -ly thinking of her from now on is just as crappy as the rest of them she just doesn't have superpowers. I enjoy trash lead character but this is some hot garbage that she's doing to train. Although i highly suspect it mr eggers orders ultimately. No one is going to leave. Ashley fully charge of anything. She's largely a sinecure really. She gets status and money for this and she gets some sort of feeling of being involved and important but you can tell that there are other people a lot more involved in this than anyone was when madeleine was making decisions but she goes ahead and with mr edgar essentially backing her invisibly mcgregor's not present the room or anything. She tells them what to do. And he goes ahead and decides to do the scene as it is and he sees his replacement inside of thought. He's also having to work with storm front on the set and while they're talking about the deeps commercial for the church of the collective storm front says that she used to be a member of it back when it was still pure and gives him a look that seems to be implying that they started letting people of color in and she says some people are quality and some are garbage and then she mocks him so it looks. I like she sang. People call her specifically black people since she's talking to a train but over time in this episode. We see that she only cares about soups now. Or at least that's what she says when she's talking to homeland her but that seems kinda suspect because she did say a racial slur as well when she killed kimiko's brother and he also had superpowers. So here we are. I think she's both all of the above. She probably also hates people who were gay. I'm waiting for that. Showdown between her and maeve but home homeland or get his points backup after he tries to go and talk to the protesters and they hate him so she sits down with him. He finally comes to her trailer and she sits down with them and she shows him some memes that she's had somebody make for them and that they're going to get these pro homeland or memes out there to fix this and in doing so. She gets his points back up by five points. I suppose so. He was down by nine point five and he's back up by five by the end of it and that results in very interesting interaction between the two of them where they get into a super crazy combative super sex five feet. So they're joint. They're just breaking everything and he lasers her in the chest by her request and she's like that hurts and so he stops and she goes to the key going so she is apparently into like a soup version of bedia sam and is really bringing him into this new realm of sexuality that he's not used to he had some of like a mommy and little boy going on with stillwell some age play seemed to be occurring. But this is wholly different. It makes him feel seeing. It makes him feel understood in many ways and like he may have found an equal. But this also gives me very strong margery tyrell vibes. So i've also been recently watching. Game of thrones again from the beginning. We watched the first four seasons probably in week as one does when one binges shows that are already off the air. And so i just got to the scene recently where santa is engaged a tyrian and so now. Marjorie is engaged to joffrey and margarine. Elena ask hey you know how is he and they finally get out of santa that he's a monster that joffrey isn't monster and they don't seem all about upset about it. They're like well. That's a shame but at least they know what they're up against and then marjorie uses that knowledge to get joffrey to like her by asking him to show her how to use the crossbow and having him show her like with his arms around her. Were also saying that you know. She may be like to go hunting with him sometime if he thought that. That would be. Okay and finding a point of contention with him by framing it. As though her father would never let her do something like that but now joffrey is also in the role of her protector as her future husband. And he's like well. You don't belong to your father anymore. So she's praying on his nature and his tendency to be very anti feminist to be very superior and elitist just like storm front is doing with home. Lander in marjorie case marjorie was pretty cool. And i liked her. She was one of my absolute favorites in the whole series and really was a good guy. She was using the influence. She have a joffrey to help. Make sure that people were fed and things like that whereas storm front is possibly quite worse than homeland or himself so she is going full margery. Tyrell on him though. I don't think that she fully believes everything that she's telling him because she also recognizes when starlight is acting and calls her out on it. So i think that she also realizes that in order to get homeland she needs to do. She can work her way under his skin and get him to be influenced that way. Don't get me wrong. May is no sansa stark but maeve was not able to entirely reach him in that way either because ultimately he ever so different that he in storm front are a lot of like even if she is also manipulating him she is way better at it than stillwell was and maeve specifically could never because. That's just not how may this. That's not her. Approach may though is ready to take home underdown. Though she is fed up with him. Elena is getting really upset about this press tour. And the fact that they want elena to cut her hair and wear a pantsuit because people are more comfortable with gay relationships. When it's very clear that there's some type of sexual demarcation and there so one person in the relationship is quote unquote the man and the other one the woman so it's like a heterosexuals ation of homosexuality that makes heterosexuals more comfortable. And maeve isn't finding them on like any of this. But elaine is new to it so it's very upsetting and may decide you know she's not going to put up with this anymore and that she will tell people that he's a good guy and tried to help him get back on the seven if he will support in the future in helping to get rid of homeland or really dicey play on her part. The deep is super manipulable. Is that a word. So he's super easy to manipulate right now because there is something he definitely wants and there are multiple people who can help him get it. So that's really dicey to me. But she tells initial help him and she's not joining his church. She's like no. I definitely don't want anything to do with that. But help me out this. And i'll help you out. Lastly storm front is being messy in a more overt way with starlight. She has stopped pretending to be this person who just says whatever she wants to appeal to millennials and things like that and is just overtly calling run. She's like. I know that you did this with compound v and you let everybody know and you're gonna be a big help to me but what she means by that remains to be seen because homeland or walks in right then and when he asked what's going on she tells him it's just between us girls and starlike yup and bounces out of there really quickly so she's a really compromised position right now. Starlight that is but it's kind of like the concept of trying to quit the mafia. How does one quit the Seven you don't wanna be just kicked out. I mean you could be kicked out but they might kill you. Maybe for doing something so bad publicly and making them look bad that they would need to kick you out unless they can frame her as terrorists. Maybe they will. Since she's been seen with huey and billy and all them maybe that's how they'll eventually get her out saying she's a turncoat but that's not her getting out on her terms that's her being pushed out on. There's so she doesn't really have a way to get out of this in any safe capacity. But i think as much as the deep wants back in she definitely wants out but she does not have a real recourse for that and her allies are dwindling. The fact that may've is going to support the deep in coming back to the seven is super problematic since he sexually assaulted anne anne. Anne told him that she's never going to forgive him for this. So maybe was the one she was closest with on this team and now may supporting her abuser. So this is a really picky situation and we see themes of that. Also mirrored in. When billy tells mr edgar via blackmar's camera and the phone call that he is going to forward that information to ronan farrow. He's going forward the media about becca. An everything to ronan farrow. Because ronan farrow was largely involved in the metoo movement is deeply involved in the metoo movement. There was a lot going on with his sister. Dylan farrow in regards to allegations made against their stepfather. Woody allen in which dylan farrow said that. He had molested her while she was a child. And ronin has also written about a lot of other people who have been involved in the metoo movement a lot of different people's stories women and other people who were victimized by these abusers over the years so the show is super meta in that way. And i really appreciate the approach that they're taking all these this peppering of these modern day occurrences what's happening in our culture right now because these things are going to be snapshots later on in the future so now i go back and i watch. Tv shows like jag. That are serious and a love socio politics in them or i also will go back and watch things that are silly. Like sitcoms like the nanny and you can see a lot of the sociocultural changes over time in these shows that lasted for like ten years on the air. And i look back at it and go whoa. We had a lot of problems with russia in the early nineties. Since jagran from nineteen ninety five to two thousand five their primary villains were the russians for at least the first half of that and then for the final component because we had gone to war in iraq and afghanistan while the show was still on the air. The bad guys changed more to be reflective of what we were seeing then and who america's adversaries were largely considered to be so the focus was removed for russia and was then placed on storylines related to terrorism and people in the middle east. So the boys right now is very timely. But it's in the future going to be somewhat of a time capsule and i think that it's going to be even better in the future possibly than it is now and that's really saying something because i love the show and we'll talk more about it next week.

GSMC SciFi Podcast Episode 258: The Boys S2E1

"Golden state media concepts, side podcast. Gather we dive into the World Scifi Science Fiction from episode of Star Trek Star. Walk the walk. Resident Evil all the. Science fiction movie from the Bachelor Marvel or DC golden state media concepts Sifi cats, you'll never get science fiction the same way again. South. East. Thank you for tuning in to the GSM see Sifi podcast brought to you by the GSM MC podcast network. I'm your host Alex. I know I know today you're expecting another installment on Kevin J Anderson's files e you. Book Ruins. But no. That will have to wait for another day because today I want to talk about the boys season two episode one. I waited a few days so that folks would have some time to watch it. So I waited a week really but we're going to talk about today. So if you've not seen it yet and you don't want any spoilers, then maybe saved this one for a few days from now when you have binge watched the first few episodes. And by that yes, I do also mean that they the first couple episodes and now we have to wait a week at a time for the next one to come out what is this one? Thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, I would like to binge all of this in two days like I did for season one please. But, alas, that is not what we're being given and it's probably for the best I think we all use a lesson in delayed gratification although in the middle of Cove nineteen really now's the time for delayed gratification but I digress. So we're GonNa talk about that today I really enjoyed the first season as I'm sure you guys are well aware of by the fact that I did an episode at time for it and we're going to do it again there is a lot to cover in episode one, and this is your final warning before we go into spoilers. Array Gano. Three do one. All right today with the boys season two episode one, we're going to talk about where starlight finds herself. Nowadays, we're also going to see what the world looks like for homeland, her and Billy Post stillwell having been killed, and we are going to check in on the deep and what all the other characters are up to. Let's be honest. There's a lot going on in this episode you guys we have. Going on now that we're in season two and we really know all of the other characters, we are getting to flush them out some more and getting to know them as individuals up. Until now, we've mostly gotten to see them in context with each other and don't get me wrong. I absolutely love that I love juxtaposing these characters with each other in different situations and getting to see different facets of their personality in that way. But we're also starting to get them split up a little bit more and getting to learn more about their back stories in season two. Eyewitness episode starts out. We get to see the background of what happened in season one. So the T. L. E. R. of that is that billy butcher has wrote the boys. So Huey this guy used to work at a video store. Earn Electron store really he's roped him into his campaign against soups because hueys. Girlfriend Robin was killed by a train when he was really hopped up on the substance called compound V that they use to make superheroes to begin with. But if you're already soup, then it results in you being like extra strong or extra fast it amps up your power like way higher. So it's kind of like steroids for superheroes. But it also makes them like very high to the are almost like their own cocaine or speed or something. So. Robin guts killed by a train and he showed absolutely no remorse for it and so huey felt very compelled to take up that mantle net vendetta. But the more time he spent with billy just the deeper and deeper he got into it. He was more so just wanting to expose them, but billy is wanting to just absolutely outright kill these soups. So. Huey is essentially on a slippery slope and just keeps compromising bits of. Until he finally just totally set aside the he was before and starts asserting himself and that's part of his here is journey, but he's also kind of an anti hero because he's out here legit murdering the bad guys. But I would say that since he is not killing anybody else that he's still arguably very much a hero. Have problems with Batman only because Batman does not kill people at least not as Bruce Wayne Thomas Wayne Batman. Go kill people. But for Bruce Wayne Batman, he doesn't kill anybody and so he just keeps the having them incarcerated in Arkham and they're super villains, and so they figure out how to get out a lot. The amount of security at Arkham asylum is laughable. It's not. It's not great security guys. So they break out all the time whether that's like man batter killer croc where Harley Quinn or the joker or poison ivy and cat woman there always breaking out of there. All the characters and so because of that because Batman won't Kill Them I think that Batman is also largely to blame for a lot of the problems that Gotham sees like they've killed cumulatively thousands and thousands of people and Batmans like. It's fine. So if you're GONNA be Vigilante Superhero, it's very confusing for me where Batman draws that line and I disagree with him and we see that difference in the Marvel Universe especially in the NFC you where people absolutely do get killed a super villains do get killed. They go ahead and stop them, and that's because they're super villains I'm not advocating for Batman to go out there and kill people in general killing people who were like robbing stores and stuff nothing like that I'm just saying this fantastical Universe Batman. You'RE NOT GONNA kill the joker when he just dropped two trains full of people into the ocean or whatever he's done this week. I'm just saying. Why does the joker just keep getting sentenced to Arkham in these scenarios? It's bewildering. At the very least. So in the boys and much like in parts of the MC, you take care of the problem and I'm not advocating for vigilantism in real life. Remember this is a fantasy show. So this is superheroes. It's Sifi definitely because they are using compound be to create them and everything, but it also is a bit of satirical fantasy taking this superhero vigilantism to the extreme where they're not just vigilantes rather the superheroes been deputized and the people who were fighting them and this abuse of power are the vigilantes. It's really flipped it on its head and I think it's super smart show I really appreciate Garth Ennis's creation and also All, the work that Eric Kripke is put into bringing this to life all of the actors and crew in everyone who were involved in this fantastic in my opinion. But I digress. So Tr Huey is our good guy on his hero's journey and he teams up with Billy Butcher who is pretty chaotic in his mission, but also I mean he is going for. A good thing we find out that homeland or sexually assaulted billy's wife shortly before Rebecca disappeared for years and years, she's gone for nine years and then we find out she's alive at the end of season. One. So. That's most of it and I take it that if you if you're listening to us right now that you have watched season two episode one and also thereby season one. So I'm not going to go too far into the back story on that. But after we get that full story, ARC, comprehensive recap of season one at the beginning of the boys season two. Then we see kind of a montage and it starts with a hearing like Senate hearing. And they're all sitting there arguing about this bill that they see in front of them where they're trying to decide what the capacity of soups in the. Military is going to be and we see the Giancarlo Esposito is sitting there. If you remember from season one, he's the big boss at. He was still wells boss and he wants full oversight and direct reporting of the soups to him without having to pay any attention to the military chain of command, and he says that that's what other contractors get for the military and so that's what he wants to. and. The whole thing is done while we're also seeing soups do stuff in the background where are taking out the soup terrorists that we met at the end of season. One McCabe. The one who can. Explode everything around him. So he's going to be totally fine, but it's just a giant fireball around him. So we're seeing them take him out. So unfortunately, we don't get to know much more about him before they take him out but I really like the way that this is spliced together in kind of a montage it's not just music over top of it though we get to see and hear what they're actually saying. So the discussion between the policymakers I don't know if it's the Senate or the house but between them in Giancarlo Esposito in them, that is happening interspersed with going back and forth with what's happening with the. And while they're doing this, there's just a guy who's like a senatorial page or something, and he's standing there with a box of sandwiches like just a bunch of big sandwich orders and he is calling out the orders that they had made. So he can give the sandwiches to the appropriate people. So he's just handing out. This. Lunch on the Senate floor as they are making these laws about the oversight of soups in the military. The mundanity of it is striking and I really loved how they use that tone to really get across the point. In. The story. Everything that's happening right now is absolutely bonkers but for them, this is just another day they're not happy about it, but they feel politically pressed into having to do it, and also with homeland pushing for everything not only could it result in an uprising of citizens if they don't play this carefully. But. Also, they have a problem because homeland or himself could kill a bunch of them. It's very clear that most of them don't know how dangerous he is, but they're scared of his potential, they don't even know that he's a murderous psychopath. They just know that if he were to decide to use his powers for quote, evil unquote that it could be catastrophic for them. Now I hesitated just a bit there because I was about to say that it would be catastrophic for the American people, but let's face it. They don't really care about the American people it's more about whether or not they'll be re-elected. And that's specifically talking about the boys like that universe but also it is commentary on the American political system at large. Remember this is higher. So this is just the truth and potential truths taken to the extreme. We're GONNA go on a quick break, and when we come back, we're going to catch up with the seven stay tuned. Would movies to go see and check out the GMC movie podcast. It's your ticket to the latest movies whether it's a new blockbuster event, romantic comedy or action flick.

The break we were doing a recap of the season one and seeing where we've started out in season two episode one. So we caught up with Nicky Butt and the interactions between Mr. The big boss vodka played. Giancarlo. And the Senate or Congress, not sure which one politicians. And now we're going to catch up with what the seven are up too soon season one stillwell and the HR guys decided to. Tell everyone that translucent was out fighting MS thirteen. So he was on an away mission and that's why no one had seen him for a while the he was on a special mission like not necessarily undercover, but I mean he's translucent so he can just be translucent. And so that's where he was. So they didn't want to admit that they capable of dying at least not at the hands of single ordinary people like billy butcher and he. So they said that he was away. In the very first episode, right after the hearing and seeing that montage of that split up with Nikki being killed. By one of the seven, we also see that they are holding a funeral for translucent and they're pinning it on a South American cartel. And they're also. This to spur public support for fighting soup terrorists by also making up the last words of translucent to be about saving Americans and by making up I mean outright lying strongly made up. They were not even there. They weren't anywhere near there when translucent died remember that Frenchie had his girlfriend. blowed the apartment so that they could get homeland or to fly over there and distract them from where translucent was because they were about to get caught. So homeland had just left from there. They had no idea. They didn't get to see translucence body parts or you know see them I don't know. Maybe get to see his guts in everything that we're in that box that billy had coated in zinc I believe. So let is superman but I, think that if I recall correctly. Can't see through things that are coated with zinc. So they had put that at the bottom of the ocean, but the deep head founded by talking to some porpoises or something, and they did find the remains later on. But for a long time homeland didn't know where he was of course, homeland doesn't care about anything but the image and everything in his own agenda. So it's not like he was exactly worried about translucent per se but about what this might mean for the seven and by the seven I'm mean for him, he is their figurehead leader, but also he is. kind of like scar in the lion king he has them all under his thumb to bear link the hyenas in a way and they're all terrified except they aren't really bloodthirsty like the hyenas well, at least not all of them. A train definitely made some questionable decisions partly through the coercion of homeland partly due to substance abuse issues and some other problems he's had going on but you know we don't know much about black noir or his motivations. He seemed all too happy and content to go ahead and kill Kiko. I don't WanNa say necessarily happy because that connotes he had some kind of joy from this, but he didn't really seem to be bothered by it like Maeve and starlight are. And even the deep seems to be going through some type of. Understanding or perhaps his own awakening and Journey about whether why he's doing an has been doing is right or wrong. I don't know how far he's gotten for we're. Not GonNa, get ahead of ourselves, but you get my point. So we're not entirely sure about black or anything like that. But we know that some of the seven have done some messed up stuff including translucent. Now, they all have their own reasons but we have a kind of a faction situation arising here in which Queen Maeve and. Anne starlight. Of homeland her but also they recognize that he is totally a villain but they're taking a different stance than a train is who also realizes the same thing. But we're at this funeral right for translucent and homely under is leading it because he is again and ordained minister. So he is doing this preaching thing and. is also having anti there with them to sing a song. So she has a musical performance at the funeral. It's a little bit country, Beautiful Feminine Strong. You can see exactly how they're trying to shape her character as from a marketing perspective not for us is the viewer but for all of the Americans that are in the universe of the boys so they're trying to make her seem like Super All American down to Earth that kind of thing I mean she makes fireworks at this. Event to while she is singing it's somebody's funeral, but they're having her make these fireworks because she starlight. That's what she does. She's essentially her own pyrotechnic show. So it's a song about the loss of a hero and America. And it's super exploitive and it's definitely propaganda hilariously and in true propaganda and exploit hated. Form. It is called never truly vanish because he's translucent. So that gave me a good chuckle. I had a clip of the music. I'm going to have to go back through and listen to it myself though to find the lyrics because those were not readily available on the Internet but you can see exactly how they're trying to market her. She is all American like Apple Pie and that means country music and that means feminity and strength in that way, and she's also doing fireworks because what's more American than fireworks and the Fourth of July it's not necessarily saying it's the fourth of July, but you're getting these very strong. Tones of it of just America, right in the face. And that's the point. We also see that. STARLIGHT is having to hold hands with homeland her and walk around and just. Do all of these press junket things talking about how much they are working together as a family at them like the seven to stay strong in our homeland is really leading them and it is uncomfortable for sure but they are doing their best to pull it off at least starlight is. Home. Pretty. Haughty, as he always is We also get to see the deep. He is still in Sandusky Ohio banished for. Being called out for sexually assaulting starlight. He wasn't banished for sexually assaulting anyone still will admitted to the deep that she knew he had done this to women before, but he is instead being banished because he was found out about it and that's bad pr and stillwell hated nothing more than she hated that Pr. So he's still hanging out there and he's having a rough time kind of losing a little bit Huey is living in some kind of bunker it's grimy and disgusting and dark and Dank. Frenchie is also there as our Kemoko and mother's milk and a bunch of unknown people like a Bunch League seven fourteen I don't know there's a whole bunch people I did not recognize. We also see that a train is on a ventilator still comatose. And after all of this, we see you know Huey is seen this interview with homeland starlight. He's very clearly very upset. They didn't necessarily part on the best terms last time as she told him to run while she was saving a train life from where his weak heart from the compound via gave him a heart attack, but she's also still not happy with him because. He to her like a ton. So star lights upset with him and he's very very miserable especially since they all also got burned at the end of season one. But I do like how we get to follow starlight home after this crappy day of having to do these interviews with homeland of whom she's very clearly scared and also terrified that he gonNa find out about her leading Huey Go. And she goes and looks in on a train pretty much every day and sees he's still on the ventilator Komo's shows have it in her to kill him or to let him die. She can't do it and neither could Huey even though that is the person who killed his girlfriend. Robin. It was an accident and one for which Adrian has no remorse. But Huey did not have it in him to just let a train die even though he knew that a train would likely homeland or in either one or both of them would keep trying to hunt him down afterwards. But we get the follow starlight home and we see that. Her Room or her quarters I'm not sure exactly where she's living if she's in the tower if homelands making them live there or what? But her place looks like a mansion looks very nice and we see her starting to undress from work. And remember she fought tooth and nail was still well in the first season to not have to wear skimpy outfits and just be the super hyped up sex symbol. And she lost that battle. But we see now that there's even more layers of padding and makeup and hair extensions, all that jazz that are hyper feminizing her and trying to make her into a sex symbol. That's what the big hair. The big curly hair is foreign fake eyelashes and they have her putting in like the padding like little chicken cutlets to make your boobs look bigger. She's GonNa. Take on this off and she doesn't slowly she gets the boots off and everything and she's just tired and then we see her just staring in the mirror with at all wiped off and she's upset but ultimately, she's resigned to what she stuck with right now. This is the reality of Star Lights American dream coming. True. It's been more of an American nightmare for her since the very beginning of getting it with being sexually assaulted by the deep like right after she had been announced as being starlight, the nightmare began and it just keeps getting grimmer as she is getting a glimpse behind the curtain and seeing that the nations behind all the Glitz and glamour and what she thought was really true morality and trying to help people isn't actually all that it's cracked up to be in season one. She even got in trouble for saving a girl from being sexually assaulted because it wasn't on the marketing junket and they were afraid it was going to end up being bad press. You can't help but feel bad for Auntie she's trying to do. Everything that she can to be a good person and to be a great superhero but it seems like the more than any become starlight more. Any hates starlight starlight not really any wants to be I think that's where we're heading as we're going to see that Anne ultimately just wants to be any. We're going to go on a break and when we come back, we are going to catch up with the deep and what has happened regarding everyone's reaction to still wells murder stay tuned.

Talk. Welcome back before the break we were catching up with the seven. The deep is still in Sandusky. Ohio Vodka. Has decided to admit that translucent is dead although they have blamed it on cartel for, of course, marketing and political maneuvering reasons. And we are now moving forward to seeing what's happening with Huey. Anne are still in contact with each other anymore. What's happening? They were once so in love and it was cute but. The Huey, lying to her all the time even though we understand why he did it has tragically caused a rift in their relationship especially since she then tried to arrest him and because of that billy went ahead and shot her with a high caliber round. Granted Billy knew that it wouldn't kill her. It would just slow her down but also billy doesn't care as she lives or dies remember he hates all soups equally and that may even include baby soups although that's going to be really complex for him. Now that he knows that his wife Rebecca had a son by homeland or even though she was sexually assaulted by homeland or he raped her and that's how she became pregnant with his child. But I'm not sure how far that will be meaningful for billy is this is the Rebecca's child so he may be in for a bumpy road of personal growth. We see that now Huey in anti. They've been separated for awhile. They have met together on a train so they're on the subway. Together in Huey is. He looks like crap and Anne tells him as much as like, Hey, you look terrible because he tells her that she looks beautiful and everything she goes you. You'll awful like I'm sorry I can't lie to you about that one and he's like, yeah, I know. So you can tell that they still have affection for each other, but Anne is still deeply wounded by him hiding so much from her in line to her so much and so the encounter is also incredibly tense. You can tell that Huey just wants to be near her, but he also understands she's mad at him and he's miserable from it and she still has feelings for him. She still cares about him but he has lied to her repeatedly and she can't trust him. So she's hurt in that regard to. We also get. To see that they are trying to orchestrate obtaining some compound the because they can't prove anything else without it. The CIA decided not to work with them because we have super villains now. So instead the Senate or Congress, whoever the politicians in everyone had changed their tune and are now working with getting bought. Into the military it's not what any of the wanted but the political posturing and marketing has been too much and now the American politicians and government in general including the CIA. Feel absolutely well-named and are not able in their minds to go ahead and say no to this because now the American people are calling for it since homeland are used compound be to home grow super villain terrorists. In the meantime. The deep is you know more or less going off event? I'm not even sorry about that one. It had to be said Su. He is yelling profanities about honest trench while he blasts kids with water at a local splash pad he might be drunk as well. He's on somethin'. He's very miserable and he gets arrested just by regular cops. In the meantime butcher has been framed for still wells murder. So we know from having seen the end of season one that it was actually homeland or who killed still. And he burnt her is out of her sockets not even just her is he pretty much melted parts of her bones with the lasers as he likes to yell at people I will laser you. So he laser her and burned out, her is a big old chunk of her face and also you know likely went all the way through. So she totally dead but billy new, there is no way he could get away from home winter. This was his one opportunity to kill him and he knew that blowing up the place might not be enough to really do it but he was gonna go down trying because now that still well is dead. There was nothing that would prevent homeland her from killing him and also. Billy's not to attach life. Anyway. He's pretty much come to the conclusion that Rebecca his wife. Is Dead now. So he was ready to die and he went ahead and blew the house up anyway even though there was totally a baby in the house, his hatred for homeland or is just that strong but homeland or of course, flew him apparently the baby way out to where Rebecca was said, he can rub it in Billy's face before dumping billy into the parking lot of some place in the middle of nowhere. So now, billy. Knows that Rebecca's alive but he has no way to reach her no way to find her. He just frantically runs into a restaurant and uses a Crayon in a place to scribble down anything. He can remember about the House and then he runs off because of course, he has been framed for still wells murder by home lander. So we already know that homeland or figured out who have ruined was earliest vodka in general figured out who Would was in the last episode of Season One and they all got burned really badly they've all been outed. So since Home Lander killed still himself because he's a sociopath, the fact of the matter is that billy did plant that bomb and billy did detonate it. So he is still getting blamed for this and there's likely evidence to point to it plus homeland had already had a manhunt on four him before this. So it's really easy. To just pin this on him because he's already done a thing and by thing I mean, you know activities that have been decried in the public eye. Now, they're not going to say that he's killed translucent because they don't want to give him power or make him any type of a martyr figure should homeland or decide to kill him or anything like that but they are going to frame him so he has to just keep running. In the meantime, the boys don't really know where billy is but with that sills death being pinned on him and therefore also them because they're his associates, they are all mega burned on public news. So this has gone to be. A huge deal, and now they're not able to hide anywhere even approaching just. Okay. That's why they're living in this gross sewer bunker looking place. Now that does also mean that bought is publicly down to five instead of the seven. Because not only translucent dead, but the deep is still banished to. Sandusky. Ohio right now. So we're does that really leave the seven day have to empty spots that are now publicly acknowledged and they also don't have still well there. So. Who is the middleman now between Mr Edgar and the seven? Turns out it's Ashley Remember I was upset with her getting let go in season one while she gets to come back. But now I'm just scared for her because it turns out that homeland is the one who recommended her I still wells job. I'm glad that she's hired back because I liked the character, but I am also scared for her. Now don't be wrong. Ashley's not necessarily a good person, but she's an interesting character in my opinion. And unfortunately for her homeland, her outright even tells her that she's his mole and she's under his control. He's assigning her to do everything. He wants he's going to write his own PR, his own marketing, his copy he gets to decide how he handles all of his stuff and she's going to report to him about what's going on on the eighty second four. So the seven or on the top floor. Floor Number Ninety nine but Mr. Edgar's office is on the eighty second floor. So he wants her to spy on Edgar for him. Home Lander is also just absolutely off the rails right now he super freaks out on Ashley with a speech about that following some derogatory language against disabled folks and then he also busts of blind. Superhero. In his eardrums, Ashley is who selected this person. This character's name is blind spot to be a replacement for translucent on the seven and she's very excited for it. She's framing this to homeland as diversity higher because Ashley is first and foremost a marketing person and she's super stokes think he's going to be great for marketing for PR and their image, and then homeland is like what about if someone does this and then he collapsed the guy in the ears like as hard as possible and ruptures his eardrums with that pressure. He might have also actually killed the guy, but he just it. So calmly, but is also very angry at Ashley like seething and letting her know, hey, you don't get to pick who goes on the seven I get to pick who goes on the seven I'm the boss and the situation, and that's why I picked you. You're going to be my lackey in you're going to do what I want you to do. Don't come to me again and tell me who is going to be on the seven or told me how my life is going to be run. He got tired of the manipulation and the lies from Madeline and he's determined to not trust anyone else ever again. We're going to go on a quick break and when we come back, we are going to see what some of the other soups are looking like even if they are not on the seven and we're also going to catch up on how Mr Edgar's doing when he's confronted by Home Lander. They tuned. TV has changed over time. Streaming has become the new norm. That's why golden state media concepts television podcast dives headfirst to the world court cutting to be on the lube of what's hot and Netflix or it's not a preference. What about original shows in Hulu, we've got you covered join us. And talk about movies to stream and what show you should be vigilant. This is golden state media concepts, television podcast. Will back before the break we were talking about how homeland recommended Ashley to replace Stillwell, whom he killed and pinned on billy butcher just because he knew that he could control. Ashley. He knew that he could frighten her into submission and he intends to use that disadvantage to get her to spy on Mr Edgar the head of ought, and also to Mutt him run everything he wants to just by using. Her as a figurehead. So she makes a lot of money probably not as much as madeline was making because she had been tenured centrally. She'd been there for so long. It had really proven herself to Mr Edgar but she's probably making quite a bit of money as the next highest up in after Mr Edgar. So she's making money but at what cost really how much is that really worth to you If you're going to be targeted and frightened all the time. But then again, if you try to back out a deal with homeland or even if it was a deal, you didn't know you made it's it's going to be a problem. It's Kinda like how Landau is lied to by Darth vader and then Darth vader keeps changing their plan or their agreement and Hey? Pray I don't alter it any further. It's Kinda like that except for Ashley. Not even willing or able to stand up to homeland or at that level he's just. Really maimed and or perhaps murdered somebody right in front of her he does not give two craps about any of this. So he's really dangerous and she's not safe enough to back out to be honest. It would be suicide. So Ashley is very firmly stuck between a rock and a hard place lake she is wedged in there. We also get to see some other soups though. So for the most part, we have seen soups either superheroes super villains or caught somewhere in the middle in this marketing scheme. So think Ezekiel or the lady who had wings and was singing at that religious. Or also Kimiko was experimented upon by. Particularly, by home lender, trying to make these homegrown terrorists. So, we get to see another person who's not associated. With this in the way that you would think. So this person is a soup whose limbs grow back and he allows people to chop them off for money in seedy motel rooms. So it's a certain amount of money for an arm versus the leg versus his member. He will let you cut off anything. A reminds me partly of some of the early days of the Internet and the pain Olympics if any of you guys recall that but it grows back in this case, and so people can take out there dark sick twisted fantasies on this guy and not have any repercussions. He's not dead he doesn't even stay maimed. Seems innocuous now is this a gateway activity to actually going out and murdering people who knows this is a new frontier in humanity. But it turns out that Annie knows this guy from the circuit that she used to do, and he'd also done with the religious expo. So was a religious expo for soups. So she knows this guy she's falling around she sees this happen in a seedy motel. And she decides that she needs to maybe get in contact with them. So I thought maybe she's going to recruit him for the seven. But we don't get to find that out until episode to when actually happens with him. So I'M GONNA leave that for now but it's a very interesting concept and I could totally see this happening also when the guy's arm is cut off he. lets the people keep it as a souvenir it doesn't grow another body or anything but it he lets them keep the arm or leg or whatever he cut off. After they cut off something, he's like you enjoy that will for this much money I will let you cut off another part of my body and they're like, okay. Yeah let's go to an ATM right now I will go and get you a grand or however much out of the bank and we'll be right back. So he takes advantage of them also being on this high from all of these endorphins and adrenaline from having cut off his arms to get more money out of them. And Hey, it's a way to make living. It brings up. Kind of the concepts of sex work and is this. Sex Work are these people getting sexual thrills from it? Is it equivalent to it because you are making money with your body in taboo way I don't know but I like that you can draw these parallels there because technically, no one's getting hurt everyone in this situation is very much agreeing upon the terms of this money for some type of activity with the body. Everyone's okay with it. No one is ultimately permanently harmed. So is it any different from fight club either? Or boxing bare knuckle boxing or any type of boxing really are fighting that results in people getting bloody or injured. His arm goes back like deadpool except he doesn't have a baby arm and it's a lot quicker so. It's an interesting argument and I would love to hear you guys argument in both directions either way hit me up on twitter or instagram or facebook the love to argue this out with you guys. Debated out really like a friendly debate not you know trying to go in on each other I'm not. I'm not trying to get hit me up. So I can give you a hard time. You get where I'm coming from I'M GONNA. Talk about this with Mafele Geeks. So. We see that guy and then we also see another guy with every bone broken in one arm and at son of broken ribs be brought in by another guy who only speaks French. Now he's not bring it in to the hotel room a segue that poorly but he is bringing them into the weird gross bunker that Frenchie and em and everyone else is up and immediately saying, Hey, dot. Guy Needs to go to you're like this is beyond any of our capabilities take him to any are we already saw what the boys were capable of in patching somebody before when they were trying to patch up Messmer played by Haley Joel Osmond after Kimiko broke his hand and it ended up just being like two wooden spoons duck taped together to be a splint hey, you use what you get. But EMINEM is very right in saying, Hey, we're not equipped to do all that and they're like, well, we can't go to the yard they're gonNA call the cops and so Frenchie. Is Trying to talk to this guy in French. But after he speaks with him, he looks super freaks out by whatever it is. The guy says in French. And even. We pop on over to Home Lander who is very upset when he is suddenly confronted with a new soup on the seven. And her name is storm front played by cash. So he's not happy about this. He looks like he's about ready to kill Ashley like quite literally, but they're on camera when it happens, which doesn't seem to be an accident on storm fronts part. Really does not give two craps about how homeland is reacting all this. She thinks that he stuffy and she doesn't like. She has very strong chaotic by energy in my opinion. I like it. I'm not sure if she's a good guy or a bad guy yet, I don't know if there's some subterfuge going on but we do know that she was appointed directly by Mr Edgar Su. He is Super Mad about her being point without his approval but he knows Ashley didn't do this Oh. You know she's safe for now but we're kind of getting this impression of. Homeland Lander is Kinda Darth, vader. But it might very well be that Mr Eggert could be the emperor. We're GONNA see he's two steps ahead of him. I do like the storm front is also like she's just so chaotic she shows up by live streaming, the commercial that's being filmed by Queen Maeve and homeland. And I, really enjoy how they approach that. So he can't maintain his public persona on this livestream. And reveal all the secrets. So he has to really put on his happy face and tried to pretend that he's not super upset Queen Maeve doesn't look necessarily thrilled because she's having to learn about this new person. Live like literally the girls live streaming it, but you know what? It's fine. This is maybe can be fine for Green Bay. We're GONNA SAY WE'RE GONNA see. But we do see that home lenders not happy about this, and so he full allies on over to Mr Edgar to complain and he's like Hey I. Am I am the face of this place I'm who everyone is associated with it. I'm your moneymaker, and so you had better do what I want. And instead of responding to anything that home lenders just said, Mr Edgar response to this entire diatribe with a question, and it totally puts homeland or off. Mr Edgar, who stayed standing this entire time and homeland has sat down and just reclined back in some furniture because he feels like he has the upper hand and so he can take the submissive position. But by Mr not backing down and this non going the way he wanted to, you can see that it makes homeland or feel very vulnerable and very upset. So. He looks more like a little boy being chastised, which is something that Madeleine stillwell was able to use the manipulate him before. But this is very different. She was more of a doting mother figure in. That's why part of the sexualization was so weird and I would be remiss if I didn't mention the milk drinking episode. It was played very sexually as it was supposed to be and. I think that the guy plays homeland or did an excellent job at it I ve is definitely no kink. Shame but that's how it was played to be. So I tip my hat to Anthony Star mission objective achieved that was unsettling and very much telling us more about. Who Home Winter is, is a person without any words at all we really getting his mommy issues across and did a great job. If you don't know what I'm talking about by the milk seen that you haven't watched the episode or you picked, I don't know either a really great time to go to the bathroom or. Time to go to the bathroom depends on how you look at it. Really be should definitely see it at least once. So you know what I'm talking about. Much like pornography you'll know it when you see it. Mr Edgar though unloads on homeland or his very. Giancarlo Esposito away where he's not even really yelling he's just quiet, but it's unnerving Giancarlo Esposito and Kate Mulgrew have this very scary way of coming across when they get quiet them yelling is way less scary than than being very quiet and serious and Giancarlo Esposito has done it again where he's even able to come across as menacing when we know that homeland is a sociopath who has killed a ton of people who did not necessarily need to be killed just because he felt like it. Mr Edgar tells him that he's actually made a bigger mess. He's not done this great job that he thinks he's done that homeland or has just been incredibly messy and Mr Edgar is now having to clean up his mess. So he's not even going hey, you're not in charge I am he is absolutely rubbing his nose in it like he's a bad puppy who is Craft on the carpet or something now don't get me wrong. Puppies are not doing anything bad by pooping on the carpet. They know yet they're still learning whereas homeland heard definitely knows you're not supposed to just murder madeline still well, but he did it and so Mr Edgar's treating him like that. He's just going, hey, I know madeleine usage bob you in the nose. With a newspaper but I'm GonNa go ahead and just absolutely rub your face in it, which is also mean to puppy but for homeland, it's very fitting. He has very much done some crazy stuff. He is not controlled the release of compound V as Mr Edgar explains to him, compound V is more so that big moneymaker Home Lander is according to Mr Egger effectively replaceable. He's not the moneymaker that he thinks he is. He's not the leader or the head that he thinks he is now this very much angers homeland her and when he gets angry, he gets more dangerous but clearly, he is going to at least for now. Just leave Mr Eggers office. He's not going to argue this out or anything he feels sufficiently chastised but also very angry that someone is speaking down to him. This anyone would deign to speak down to him. So, he decides to go see Rebecca and his son who is now played by Cameron Crowe. We don't know why season one's Parker Corno was recast. But we now have Cameron Preveti playing Ryan in season two and he's also been in big little lies before. So that's not really a sci fi so I don't really talking about it much on this show but I very much enjoyed it. It's kind of. A murder mystery thriller type thing and I really enjoyed it might like it. It's got Meryl Streep in it so I mean come on go watch it. But he was in that too. So I liked him in that and hopefully, he will also be really great end season two of the boys. There is a ton that happens in this episode y'All it's it's a lot a lot. So I'm just going to wrap this up today with also saying that the guys tried to meet with deputy director Rainer played by Jennifer Esposito to talk about the super terrorists in what they've learned in to say, Hey, we're trying to get a copy of that compound. V. We're trying to get a vial of it, but she has finally gotten the missing pieces from them from what she has been. Looking for. So she saying it's a coup from the inside, but just as she puts the pieces together, her head explodes like from the inside out just her head though but very similar to the translucent explosion. So how the heck did that happen? Just the first time she says something out loud that has to do with her figuring out what's going on her head explodes and the guys are all going. Oh. God and trying to get out of there there covered in blood again suddenly. And they wanting to know who has? Superpower, who is a superpower that can do that who who can just do that and mother's milk is like I. Don't know who would even be capable that it didn't look like the person got lazard's or anything else, and also the boys weren't targeted. They were close enough to get all that blunt spotter, but they weren't. There van wasn't destroyed or anything like that bull they weren't followed as far as we could tell, but they didn't destroy the van if they're able to just explode people's heads from far away I would imagine that they would just go ahead and kill them. They wanted to get rid of them too. So that assassination was specifically directed towards the deputy director of the CIA. So I'm bummed to see her go is a character I thought she was really interesting. I, liked her but hey, this is the world that they live in. We're seeing lots of different replacements some for the better some for the worse it seems Mr Edgar has a much better rain on home winter least he isn't frightened of him like Madeline was, and so this is going to be a much different fight. And also now the boys have lost that connection to deputy director Rainer. So they no longer have that valuable. CIA. contact. We see in this episode that Anne has decided. She's going to blackmail her friend that trump's off his limbs. He calls himself Gecko because he's able to grow back body parts like some lizards. are able to they call that from your tail falls off and you're able to grow another one that's called all tallest end. So a lot of times a lizard scared only certain types of lizards, but they're able to drop their tail and run off and said that confuses predators and also if the Predator has them by the tail been there just left holding a tail while the Lizard runs off, and so it is self cutting off. So tallest caudal tail. So it's cutting off its own tail. That's one of the cooler things that I learned in my herpetology class in college. So gecko is doing this and and he's like, Hey, I'm gonNA blackmail you for this because you work at in the labs and I need a copy of Compound v I need I need a vial of that. And he is really upset because one she has come to him like she's an old friend who happened to run into him in a diner and now she is. Blackmailing him but also he's like, Hey, look I'm pretty much their lab guinea pig. They just want my body parts because they grow back and they're able to do these tests on them without me having to actually die. It's like more ethical PR friendly way for them to get human research material with out having to you know admit that they're doing it to prisoners or animals or anything like that. They're getting to go straight to human testing. He's like so I'm their Guinea pig I'm not. You know anyone of value in that and she's like well, you'd better get it because they need it. So Anne is also kind of going a little dark side in this way. But she needs that compound V so they can reveal to the public. She thinks she's doing this for the greater good. And she calls Huey and. Super stoked to tell him about GEICO and she's like you know I've got an in. We're GONNA have a sample of it really soon. But he's still freaked out because he has just washed deputy director Raynor's blood and brain matter off of his face and that upsets any and she alright says, Hey, you lied to me the entire time we were together I can tell when you're lying and you're withholding for me right now. So of course, there's more tension and she's very upset. Lastly at least today because there's so much going on. In this episode, we do also get to see that billy butcher has returned home to clean up the mess that everyone has made, but you know it's Kind of huge mess billy is not necessarily the best at cleaning up messes. He's really great at making him though. So this just may be the setting for a new billy butcher playground we shall see. In. Our next episode, we will also talk about episode two of the boys season two and catch up with Kimiko writing the word boy on something repeatedly much to everyone's confusion and especially frenchies frustration, and we will talk about how the deep is perhaps going to get an intervention.

This your captain Keith hall as well. Got some entertainment for you today. Yes, yes. We're going to change up some things to we're gonna have some fun. We're going to have more and more fun you to wash the entertainment podcasters grow to boldly go, no one's gone before to reach out new universes. Yeah, I'm kind of paraphrasing their whole legendary mile from TV show. That's all I'm gonna say anyway. Teamin news gossip. It's not for you first and foremost, let's get it going Angelina Jolie and Brad. Pitt have reached an interim custody arrangement. So when you use the word interim in custody with that's telling me you're saying temporary. Okay. Amit Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's heated custody battle over their six children together. The two recently, we should interim custody arrangement a source close to the situation states according to the source Jolie. Pitt help had a plan custody hearing though it was no longer necessary to reach the green at this time. They're not details on the specifics of the agreement. Their source says, the interim arrangement was agreed upon by both parties after it was recommended by their custody valuator. There was no longer a need for the hearing the source adds. Additionally, the source states that Angeline as enjoying the last days of summer before school starts adding, she is helping the children, he'll with their father. That's good. Attempts have been made to reach out to reps for both Jillian pit. Gillian pits custody bet on made headlines again earlier this month after four, three, zero to actress accuse pit of not paying any meaningful child support for year and a half in a court filing and said, she is planning to get a court order for mandating that. He pay it pits. Lawyers response one day. Later in court papers obtained states, pit denied that he hasn't paid insignificant child support and when he paid Jolie over nine million dollars since this attempt two thousand sixteen split yet, that's quite a child support payment. Just saying that, yeah, that's next level respondent has previously loan petitioner eight point zero million to assist her eight point million to eight million. Okay. Eight million to a sister purchasing her current residents and has paid her as pay over one point, three million and bills for the benefit petitioner. And in the minor children, the documentary pits lawyers offered shout to Joey in her lawyers, writing Jolie's lawyers previously made no mention of any child support issues in that. The effort to schedule hearing on the subject is calculated to increase conflict. Petitioner's request is unnecessary amidst material information, and as Finley effort to manipulate media coverage, the court filing meat while, but in a statement.

Keith just went over story with TI, come into the offense of young schoolgirls who were being discriminated against because of their natural African hair. So. Want to say that. I think it's great. The TI was so supportive, and I really like what he said in his message on Twitter to those girls about how they're beautiful and they can be whoever they want to be and how they're smart. You don't usually hear rappers, talk like that. So. Yeah. So you know, when I look forward to this being more positive stories about rappers and their portrayals of women and you know, so. Yeah, so that was that's great. TI said on that. So they're supportive thing. That's very cool. So going to change it up a little bit. So I wanna talk to you guys about other things that are entertaining and things that I just kinda surprised me. So let me tell you about that. So I was shopping in the store about two weeks ago looking for something. I think it's probably some music or film, and I came across something that I, I thought I'd never see again that I hadn't seen since I was a kid, yes, folks, old school video game system Atari tarry flashback. It's called Atari flashback. Eight classic game console council. So back in the day before. Four. There was Sony PlayStation before there was. The x. box with the whole. You can now gain video game online with other people and all that good stuff before all that. Once upon a time, there was a Tari with Super Bowl and the volved talk to your tire tween six hundred. Then you had and television and coleco vision. These were all video games that kids could play, and it's just kind of find out because. You know, they were joysticks. They weren't call controllers. They were just all joysticks and they were all different. So I was just imagine my surprise when I saw the brought back. I mean they're calling it and claiming Atari flashback eight. So let me read you the description of what about the item. The Atari flashback eight classic game council returns their new value price to dish in complete with a hundred and five all-time favorites amazing. New additions to the game lineup, include activision 's legends like pitfall, Kabunda and river raid to wire controllers thought after the Atari twincities hundred twenty six hundred originals I'm -cluded as well as to legacy controller port to add your own optional wire joysticks or panels, so you can add. He might have been able to add back in the day to, but it's compatible with the tar twin. Six hundred mile compatibility. Data stores, drag capacity, five hundred, twelve megabyte, hard drive capacity. I'll put type s video. So. I think that's cool. I haven't seen anybody by this video game yet, but I know they will. So let me tell you about the classic video games on pitfall. They didn't mention Donkey Kong or space invaders. I mean, if you're a kid and you had that game back in the day, you were doing something you would like to cool kid on the block if you had Atari twenty six hundred. So I look at the joysticks now you know, it's black and it's got to stick and the red button. It looks archaic, but it was so much fun and that was what you used. I mean, it's in two thousand eighteen like that was the controller? Yes. And at the time that was state of the art now that gonna dare you had to buy these games. So I was surprised that they put like one hundred and five of them in here. So. I think that's amazing. So like I said, I haven't seen anybody by these video games yet. I mean the these retro flashback video game system. So there's the busy Atari flashback a classic game console and then but wait, as they say, there's more then there's the Atari flashback gold. So, and I'm still not totally sure. What. The differences with the goal. Okay. So the goat the go clues HD cable. Power to HDMI. Okay. So high definition, the difference, suppose with that. Lightweight, slim design. So that one has a hundred twenty built in games. Okay, so it's got fifteen more games. So the goal has one hundred twenty more games. Excuse me. Goal has fifteen more games. So one hundred twenty for the Atari flashback gold for the regulatory. Flashback eight classic is five. Okay, so that's fine. But yeah, so like one of the going prices on this, I mean, and this systems, it's under fifty dollars. Well, so. Okay. You can go to like if you go to your local retail store, your store chain. The Thai flashback eight. Yeah, that's under fifty bucks. And then the flashback goal is like under seventy bucks. But now. So, but I haven't. I didn't even go to Amazon yet to see and I'm gonna talk about that in one second to my theory, what's going to happen? What's people realize these games? These video games are here in vailable. So, yeah, the the goal, the Atari flashback goal deluxe is on Amazon. And. What's part of prime what's again? Yeah, so that's under under seventy dollars. So. But now let's see for the regular one. So you can get this video game, flashback video game system. You can get this at your local brick and mortar store or retail store, and you can get an Amazon and once again. Yeah, it's and that was under fifty dollars is well. So the prices are pretty competitive, whether you're brick and mortar or go online to shop for it. Now there's also flashback portable game player. All right. Yeah. So where you can play games like pacman, these are all classic game back in the day. So now what I didn't tell you that. To say this, but wait, there's more so tarries not the only one who got into this, so apparently so you can get intendo system, the classic entertainment system the Nintendo super. Any s Sega, Genesis classic say, Genesis flashback. So. If you're playing the whole new, say the video games and you're like, you know, in high school junior high imagery and your parents are like now playing just now. I'm good good way to bomb what your folks. You get one of these games, they know all about it. They may tell you they don't don't believe they do. They were playing. All the parents portion of, they know all about this to be more familiar with this. But yes, so seems like everything's come back out with exception of in television and coleco vision. Yeah, Sega Genesis. They're here and ten. Those here. So I predict that come Christmas time. Those games are going to be flying off the shelf. Those video game consoles. Because right now people are people just don't know that there there hasn't register, but once Christmas comer comes around, they start thinking about, oh, well, you know what? What's going to be a good Christmas head. I've got two nieces and I'm probably going to send him this. I'm going. Yeah. Yeah, that's gonna be a present to them. They don't even know what yet. But yeah. So I predict that these video game systems, these flashback these throwback classic games that pave the way for PlayStation XBox. Yeah, there people are going to be buying these because right now you have a lot of people by more music vinyl. Then CDs CDs are still being made, and there are still local, independent record stores, amount of pop shops that are some CDs. So they're still here, but a lot of people's, especially like the millennials, they're purchasing vinyl and the vinyls even more expensive than it ever was. So it's very interesting how things can come full circle history, Kim, repeat itself, and sometimes it's, you know, it can be a good thing. It doesn't have to be a bad thing. So. Yeah, I just wanted to mention that to you guys, entertainment land. Yeah, you can go out and get an Atari system or Sega Genesis system. And you can get the the compact system to the portable ones. This is crazy, never thought, I mean, but it's actually kind of bringing idea to bring this back. Yeah, this is pretty cool. So, yeah, you can go to your local brick and mortar retail chain's store that she usually shop at and if you can't find it there, you can go online and get it. Definitely. But it's bailable. I'm like I said, this is going to fly off the shelf. Come Christmas Mark. My words. But he has wanted to Mitch Nettie. You guys just find it very fascinating. And yeah, like I said, I think I'm going to do that. Yeah, I'm gonna get that for my nieces. Definitely. I think they'll have fun with that. So. Yeah, so Nuff of that. Okay. I got caught up in the games. So a more entertainment news, pink staffs concert to hug teenage girl who just lost her mom. Yes is very moving.

They're saying that we've taken are ready to come out of their slump so it's nice mama for us for sure. So there you go. So that's good. And. I have some other entertainment is one talk to you as about, see, I I didn't even know, but I should have already known this. There's Darth Vader comic book Darth Vader from Star Wars fame. So apparently the new death beta calming offers connections to Star Wars prequels. So the current run of Darth Vader comics has mostly featured the Lord carrying out the brutal orders given to him by emperor pal, Patine with the series leaning more into action than Vader's emotional depths in Darth Vader number twenty Vader's given a present that clearly offers tragically emotional connection to his past and advance. The fans saw the prequel films with the character, showing the slight the slightest amount of sadness. Okay. There spoilers for Darth Vader number twenty. Healthcare. So I won't read the one sport those comic. But yeah, the comic is going strong and apparently the new issues going to have ties to the Star Wars prequels. So that's pretty cool. Does look pretty nice. So I'm onto mentioned that to you guys. I think that's pretty cool. Then remember how the eagles are known for like one huge record. Hotel, California. I mean, of course, are there other stuff is great too, but so says hotel California by the eagles. What was actually about. So Michael Jackson's thriller has been overtaken as all time bestselling album by the eagles greatest hits and the band's album Oto California's at number three. So what is this book title track all about ask Alan, Connor. So Rockstars. The nineteen seventies were not kind to hotels. This is true. It's an life's been good sometime eagles ktar's Joe Walsh describes the process bluntly. I live in hotels tear out the walls. He confesses. I have accountants pay for it all. It all being a small fortune in the official history of the bam wash because a single night at Chicago's asked towers in which he and blues brother's star jam, Lucia, managed a twenty eight thousand damage Bill. Wow, I'm on other bands misuse of the hospitality industry was part of the legend. Think of Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham roaring down the corridors of Los Angeles, continental high on a Harley Davidson. He got birthday or the who's Keith moon on his own birthday plowing Lincoln continental into this pool, a Flint, Michigan Holiday Inn, well, but the eagles lay back cleanly coiffed ban who urged America we ought to take it easy, the senior eagles Winfrey, downhill quietly tolerated washes destruction. But when it was their turn to write about what life on the on the road meant to them. The result was much less literal and it may an enormous fortune rather than causing a small one. Now, Hanley have been playing with the phrase hotel California for some time, but to become a song, it had to go through the regimen at processed bad had adopted by the mid nineteen seventies the eagles were not yet at the point of communicating the lawyers, but they were referring to one another by surname. Another eagles KTAR Don Felder who actually wrote the music was tasked with recording instrumental snatches onto tape, many into frame Hanley hope of their approval. He had been doing this at home in Los Angeles to panga canyon. But while on tour, he took a call from his wife, Susan who had recently given birth. It was a short call where movie relaxing in their garden. She knows that the blanket she was lying on with the baby was next to rest of rattlesnakes. Susan sound, flew Milia to rent a beach house in Malibu Don join them, and that even duly began recording suggestion for song. A snake, a snake in apparently idyllic garden is kind of as the kind of on the nose image that would have fit right in with his rhythm track. Was to become that was written the courts. He strummed followed a pattern closer to Mingo into rock, but played on the offbeat which gave the song it's working out of Mexican Reagan. When fray and Hanley granted it the not as for the words, the pair added. They describe where where he traveler, who's lured into a lovely place of grotesque characters. It's glamorous and creepy, and it seems he can never escape. A lot of imagination has been exerted in the last four decades trying to decode the sauce images or to assemble them into something coherent. It's probably worth bearing in mind phrase words. But we decided to create something strange just to see if we could do it. In other words, any meaning hotel California has is unintended rather than hidden the atmosphere of a man and unfamiliar rules setting unsure about what he's witnessing mimic says fray, the nineteen sixty five. Now, the ma- the Maga's or makers this early work of the English author. John follows was a counterculture favorite for showing a secret world. In this case on the Greek island. Where reality assessment it was fouls himself reckon. Now his best is very far from university well written recall, I felt into almost every trap awaiting the tarot writer. Interesting. So John Fowles is Dan. Okay. So there it is hotel. California is about, you know where he traveler being into a really strange and. Glamorous creepy place. But it's not about, you know, tearing up the hotels like these Rockstars did in the seventies. Yeah, but that album is like forever mortar classic record, but it is interesting. The eagles greatest hits has actually outsold Michael Jackson's thriller officially so that that says a lot. So that's very interesting. I want to read that to you. Oh. But wait, there's more. So if you know the x men and wolverine, Hugh Jackman played him. Wolverine is probably the most famous expon there is in the marvel universe. So there's news wolverines return brings new constume a new villain. So marvels gearing up for return of wolverine the miniseries that officially welcomes original Logan back into the marvel universe. Mara previously revealed that will ring will be returning with unusual new power. And now we know that the series will also introduce a new costume in a new villain. So you can check this out the new costume on the return of wolverine number two, and I'm looking at it. He's like standing on top of some like boat in the water and he's got this. His costume was black and red. It's like a black and red vest with like three dots on his right side lapel kind of. And it's all and the and his pants are black. Yeah, no, yellow. Yeah, it's a good look. It looks good. It's red and black on Sombo. The new suit is designed by artists declarant Chevy who will be drawing issues. Number two, three, four of the series in place of original artist, Steve mcniven where most will ring constantly tend to draw from his classic tiger stripe. Look, this seems to take inspiration from wolverines all black patch costume and the military uniform. He wore in two thousand five house of in. And I see that here. There's a picture of it and it does look similar. The house. The costume was like Blair was like blue and red and similar to the black and red. It's unclear whether this new costumes wolverines new default look or if it's Pacific to his new mission. What is clear is that he'll be squaring off against a brand new villain, and this new series and her name is perceptually. She's a mysterious new player in the mutant world and. She's got this really cool white. Alfred on the, she's dressed in. And it's like half asleep, and then there's a strap going across the chess. Yeah, so that's cool. Greek name for seventy Haiti's Greek God Haiti's. That was his wife's name for seventy. She was the daughter of the meter series who was got us of harvest. So interesting. They chose that name for this new, super villain. So yeah, I want to share that with you. Wolverines got a new look. So for all you marvel fans and x. men fans being look out for return wolverine number two. Be on the lookout for that. That's name of. Yeah, return ovary number two, yet by two. All righty. So. Was there anything else I wanted to talk about? Oh, yes. Kevin Spacey under review for second sexual assault case. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles district attorney's office confirmed to confirm that a sexual assault case allegedly involving Kevin Spacey was presented to the district attorney's office by Los Angeles County sheriff's department on August twenty. First, I was yesterday and remains under review.

Police opened an investigation into allegations of sexual assault made against Basie layer. That monthly said they were investigating second case, and they said they see the poor about an alleged thorough past assault. It's like the hits just keep on coming. And and more entertainment news. My last story agents Elba confirms he won't be the next chain spine say it is not. So now only the JAMES BOND just lose his director, but he's now apparently lost people's choice to take on the I kind of role after almost a decade of rumors to eaters Elba was in line play double o seven speculation. Recently, we've ramped up once again and was even fueled by the forty five year old actor on social media, but at Tuesday's premier for his directory debut Yarden Elbe Elbe definitively said he won't be down correct successor when asked by good morning Britain, if they were looking at the next bond of flatly replied, no, Craig is set to drink another MARTINI in next year's bond, twenty five, which lost director, Danny Boyle and Tuesday to create a differences. And while Elba won't portray bond fans, it was still get to see him as a popular British law enforcement character. Later this year Dax returns for fifth installment of Luther. That's awesome.

"This new year. The new u. is going to be more organized more simplified you and a little help from brother. Label makers can make it happen from garage tools to thread school home office. File sporting good files from katie's lunchbox to grandma's tackle box. Fresh start start with getting organized because when everything is in its place. There's no place like home brother. P touch label makers new year new organized. You good morning america. This is the catch roundtable. Trinkets matija huge sunday morning. Well there was a roller coaster in wall street on wednesday thursday friday. What was going on. People were buying james stop. They're selling games. Stop well one of the smartest guys i know in wall street. His name's jim chino's he's president and founder of the kimiko's associates and also known as one of the biggest short seller's in wall street. Good morning jim. How you find john how are you. I'm okay. I i wasn't in that roller coaster feel better. Nice me because i'm greek but that's okay So what should we talk about. We want to talk about the roller coaster roller coaster. The people were there were some hedge funds that went for the ride the wrong way. They lost billions. I heard and there was some small buyers that kept buying and buying buying Because the hedge funds were short. So what say you so this is This is kind of a unique story. That has i think. Cut cut a blown out of all proportions as it relates to sort of the bigger picture the broader impact on the market and even politics which which kind of entered into yesterday but but for the listeners. What happened was a a number of hedge. Funds got aggressively short the brick and mortar retail company. game stop which which sells new and used video games and the the the original premise was a was actually good premise. People did their work realize that we're way too many people on one side of the boat. i know that feeling by the way The bear side and they decided to start buying up the stock. They promoted the idea on social media. Which is all fair in love and war and the stocks started to take off and what was a A ten dollar stock in the fall became a twenty stock. Your end and then really began to to gallup in the last few weeks of january but but f the stock went higher and higher. I should say i should point out that. The reason that shortsellers We're not not who generally do their work They basically believe that long-term the game stop model was doomed. Selling video games would be done over the internet. Not not in brick and mortar and that this would be another failed retailer. Sort of like blockbuster. Video as the stock kept going higher and higher the story began to change and it and it wasn't any more about the the merits of game. Stop as an investment but really about the fact that retailers esters were beginning to beat wall street at their own game and so over the last week stock absolutely went parabolic. I think at one point. It hit five hundred dollars And so it it went up multiples on the idea that the little guy was was beating the big guy. There's a few problems with that narrative though and that is There were lots and lots of hedge funds that were actually long or owned game stuff. And so you know. The retail investors were also enriching. Lots of the people that they thought they were hurting. That was the first problem. The second problem was the fact that many of the retail investors who were getting in on this Trade we're doing suit doing so through their online brokers like robin hood and ameritrade and e. trade who've seen their accounts really really grow over the past year and a half as commissions have gone to two zero. The problem with that was as we found out yesterday when When robin hood and others began curtailing the trading in the stocks because a number of other stocks began to trade up with game stop That had heavy short positions as people began to look for other targets The problem with that was is that because of regulatory rules those brokers needed more and more capital to keep on deposit with their clearing houses. And that's that's something that came out of the global financial crisis and immediately In investors and the press picked up on the fact that oh they've stopped trading in these situations because they're trying to protect hedge funds in fact that's not the case and we know that after the ceo's were interviewed with these brokerage firms and they said our hands were tied We have to actually calculate are capital based on a formula based on the stocks that our clients own and because they were owning so many volatile stocks that they may or may not pay for if the stocks were to reverse we have to put more and more capital and so we had to restrict trading in those stocks. How have you ever seen that. No nothing nothing to this extent. There's always been short-squeezes. There's always been bull bear struggles about companies. You know i've i've i've been involved in my fair. Share of people have differences of opinion. But this took on something quite a bit. Different wants to stock at sort of gone past thirty or forty dollars on its way to five hundred and this became and even you. You had people on tv and online things. Oh i don't care. If i lose money i'm sticking it to the man and i sort of joked to a friend said you know that's great but wall street's are very expensive place to learn that kind of lesson hundred dollars a share. We know the company's not worth five hundred hundred trading at about half that right now so it's hundred you could've but i didn't i this is this is one of these where it's just too difficult to battleground is you know could go two thousand. Yeah maybe is it. Is it worth five hundred no And and so but there are lots of other stories that we do pretty well also went up That that don't make a lot of sense and so it became kind of political as of last night people Of congress people came out. And you know. Something is kind of bizarre john when you get. Aoc and matt gaetz agreeing on something you know. That was to me an interesting sort of observation and yet from my perspective they basically had the wrong take on this that the the the concept that these individuals who basically one big right they picked the right stock. The stock went up. Just fifty fold to twentyfold whatever. Pick your pick on an wherever. It's trading in the last two days and they're the outrage was that they couldn't buy more at these prices that the brokers were trying to throttle them back from possibly self-destructive behavior. Why would any by by at five hundred companies not worth it st l. to see now that the broader issue is to where i think you know we kind of our in our markets. Is that people. People just think that they have no downside in these kinds of situations. And that's what's so frightening You and i've been around long enough to know that that you know things change and When you're buying something at ten times what it's worth or twenty times it's worth you're exposing yourself to a lot of risk and i think that that's what this new generation of younger investors has seen yet they haven't seen a bear market and so this is very much kin to the chat rooms In the dot com era when People were were recommending stocks to each other on the yahoo message boards and on america online backpack twenty years ago. So i haven't seen to market. I haven't seen a real down walking going to atlantic city or las vegas. Yeah except there's no free drinks So that's the worrisome side. I mean again. We've seen things like this in the past and individual names right where we're too many investors get on one side of the boat and reverses but the broader implications that this is having now and and a little bit. Is you know the the sort of anger that's out there of by for a lot of reasons for a lot of people you know now transferred to wall street and but it's misplaced anger i. It's it's an anger. I sort of was. It was interesting to me that there was a protest called for outside the new york stock exchange yesterday online and Videos of the protest showed there about six people there and they were holding up. Protest placards like by game stop You know down with short seller in and. i'm sure. I'm sure those six people were on a moment. Every television stations. Yeah but but the point is. This is the outrage. You're outraged that that you're not allowed to make even more money after making twenty times your money. This seems to me to be a pretty a pretty kind of weak political argument that that is going to be hard to keep white-hot interest by by you know having protests that you're not making enough money on wall street having a stock go up twenty to thirty years old you learn a lot of lessons in some some kids might have to go broke to learn. Well i hope they're suffocates the case for their sake but again i've been around the markets long enough and i know you have that She can be a hard harsh mistress and lessons are often learned the hard way But but yeah this is. This is for those of us. That are sort of like me. The this jimmy but this has been a week for the ages. I mean we've never seen anything like this. Broadly janus thank you so much for coming on and and reading and giving it straight to the american people and and i think they understand it better after what we talked about. God bless you and stay healthy and catch up again russell. My pleasure john all the best to you and your family. This is the catch roundtable. Be right back.

#127 - The Magical Language of Others by E.J. Koh

"Into oh And welcome to books and boba a podcast between pittsburgh asian and asian american authors. My name is yet. And i'm re-re you and welcome to our first book club. Discussion of twenty twenty one. We're discussing your january twenty twenty one book club pick the magical language of others by ej co but before we get to the book rear. How has your twenty twenty one going. I mean we talk about this a lot. How time is just like a flat circle and it just feels like january has flown by. It has even though i mean wasn't there a coup. Wasn't there a lot of things happened politically. Obviously but i don't know like everything kind of feels like a fever dream and with the vaccine situation. The it's it's just been constant change degeneracy that antibac- sir shutdown vaccination site now. I did not hear about that. But i did hear about was how we have a how how we have like a vaccine shortage for like more than half of the country and not there's like a new variant of the covid nineteen screen. Yeah it's gotten really bad and it's like a question of of like wilda vaccine be able to stop the symptoms of the new strains and i am trying to stay as calm as possible. I've been staying at home as much as i can. Considering that like now like covid has been happening on the outskirts of inner circle. So it's just like. I'm just i'm just like people. Please stay home because now now it's like right outside my door stop and you're kind of terrified at this point. Well we're here today to talk about our january twenty twenty one book club pick so let's get to it As always as always we're gonna talk all about the book the magical language others so if you haven't read it yet read it i if you don't wanna get spoiled But if you want to listen to us first and then read it. And that's fine to do you. And i would like to give out the trigger warnings of of eating eating disorder suicidal thoughts. I guess like child neglect This there's a lot of sensitive topics in this book. So i would proceed with caution if if you are sensitive to those topics art. So let's get started. A rewrite won't start off with the book jacket description. All right the magical language of others is a powerful and aching love story and letters from mother to daughter after living in america for over a decade g. Cho's parents return to south korea for work leaving fifteen year old and her brother behind in california overnight. G finds herself abandoned and adrift in a world. Made strange by her mother's her mother writes letters in korean over the years seeking forgiveness and love. Letters engy cannot fully understand until she finds them years later hidden in a box as nj. Translate the letters. She looks to history her grandmother. June's ears as a love sick wife and tej on the horrors her grandmother. Kumiko witnessed during the island massacre and to poetry as well as her own lived experience to answer questions inside all of us. So right off the bat. I figure i mean i really enjoyed reading this book I'm not like literally trained person but Ej's pros is really beautiful very descriptive. Very there's a lot of stuff going on and a lot of really like beautiful descriptions. But i know that because i am a son of immigrants and not a daughter especially not a daughter of a korean immigrant. I know that your relation to this story might be a little more deeper than than mine. But what did you. How did you feel about this book. Man i how do i even answer that question. Is i knew that i knew going in that memoir was going to be very difficult for me to read. I'm a very emotional reader for those of you. Who haven't been listening to our podcast for for a while. But when i memoirs are supposed to be personal and it's supposed to tell the story of the author but for me when i was reading. Ej hose book. It seemed like she was holding up a mirror. I guess instead of her instead of just like listening and consuming her story. It felt like i was seeing kind of like this distorted reflection of my own childhood and my own adulthood and like you said like her prose is really gorgeous. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that she is a poet and she knows how to use each word to its maximum effect. Just like an example of her poetic prose. I highlighted a quote from her. I watched the sun come up like an egg cracked open underwater. It's yoke rising with listlessness. Beautiful prose like that very vivid very painter lake but just to give a. I don't think i can talk about this book without talking about my own personal experience because that is just like how this book affected me that's poultry to rate. Yeah that's how it works to. I'm not a big fan of poetry Which is probably why we have not read poetry in this podcast simply because i'm also not literary trained person so i like it is intimidating to analyze it and we'll get into more of her poetry like because she has a whole arc related to like poetry and how it saved her and how it helped her come to forgiveness and all of that but her parents left her at fifteen years old. They left because of a lucrative job opportunity that would provide her parents with elite status so they could live in a condo. They have like luxury cars. They can go to department stores with like pretty much a black card and Their education would be paid for so. This is a very big opportunity. And it's a contract opportunity so her dad. His original contract is for three years in korea and the understanding is that like after three years will come back to america and be reunited with their family for me. It is like my life has kind of been the opposite My dad came to america based on a contract and my family joined him a year after his first year of starting the contract and i don't know how long the contract was supposed to be. I think it was like maybe five years. But i came to this country when i was three so they originally thought that after a couple of years will go back to korea and i'll be an elementary school and korea and grow up there but the contract kept getting extended family stayed here for pretty much eleven years. I would say so around the same time as like how in geez family was living in california. So i've been in this country for like eleven years so i'm like fourteen years old at this time fourteen or fifteen years old and My dad gets promotion and it requires him to go back to korea and it's the same situation where if we had gone we would've lived very very comfortably and my dad's salary would have been much higher. It's funny because like indies. Parents are like okay. We're gonna go and stay in america because like your your age kind of makes it difficult to adapt in korea and and for like my family. It was the opposite. They were like. Oh no you're coming no matter what. I didn't really have a choice in that matter. But i kind of came up with with Not a powerpoint presentation. But i like i was just like i'm not going to korea if you want to go to korea. You can go by yourselves. I'm staying in america. These are the reasons why i will apply to boarding school or a homestay program. At the time homestay programs were really popular amongst amongst koreans where the child would stay with like a korean-american family. And then they would still continue to go to high school while their family is working abroad so i presented all these solutions to pretty much be separated from my family whereas with energy. It's the complete opposite right like she wants. Her parents leave. She feels adrift and she feels like her parents have abandoned her and she has a hard time hard time with school she. She skipped school and she comes back after after a certain number of hours passed so that her brother doesn't know that she had been gone to school and she develops an eating disorder so obviously like her mother's absence has impacted her in a very very negative way whereas with me it was. It was very very different for me. So so like i said like reading this book it was looking at how my life could have been if my parents had decided to leave and i stayed what i have felt abandoned. Would've would. I have felt their absence in a very painful way. Would i have adapted to school by myself. Like what would i have done with this freedom. It's very it was very emotional. Read for me throughout the entire book. Yeah i mean for me. It was another variation of data as well like My parents came to america because my dow looking for work As we were growing up he north a lot of retail jobs to import export. So he would take business trips. That would take months so basically he would leave for three months and comeback for half a year league for two to three months and then once china opened up its borders for trade again. He found more opportunities as as someone who is familiar with international trade and who is also fluent in chinese to go to china and like search for business there and because there are business opportunities there and all of a sudden that that racial switched where he would come home for a month or two and then spend the rest of the time in china. So i kind of grew up with my dad. Leaving for long periods of time My mom side the stay at least until both my brother and i were in college so we can get the all. Latch key immigrant kit experience because my mom was still there but we did get used to. You know parents being absent. And i think the difference between myself and engy is that this happened to me starting in elementary school so it was like six or seven as the post like starting when i was in high school Which i think changes much more difficult to handle. When you're that age. I think because of puberty or adolescence or just heightened emotions as a teenager. I think it also has to deal with the fact that like when you're in elementary school Changes happening all over whereas like when you're a teenager there has been like a sense of self that has been solidified so when like a big change like your parents moving out of the country happens. It really does destabilize you. There's a quote in in the book. That kind of talks about that. Children have no concept that every moment comes to end but rather feel as though they're suffering at present will last for an eternity. And i think that really has to do with your addle essence ears and teen years not so much when you're like five or six years old you'll kind of forget that's true. Remember things in highschool feeling like there was the biggest deal in the world another look back like thousand the kyodo. Yeah so i. I had borrowed this book from the library. But it was an audio book and i thought well well energy narrates her memoir so i was like. Okay well this will be good enough. I will hear her voice and she's a poet so she's very good at reading her words and delivering the meaning. But then like after the first chapter i read like. She was reading a letter that her mother had written her. But it was an english. And i had heard that she actually skinned her. Mother's letters into the books. I was like okay. Well i like. I can read korean. Korean isn't like super grade but it is a lot better than than most korean-americans. So i was like okay. I need to read her mother's letters because things will get lost in translation. And there's so much you can read from from your handwriting and from korean terms that you can't fully translate so when i read her mother's letters it really reminded me a lot about my own mom because my mom also talks in third person actually a lot of korean moms talk in third person besides moms and general do that because my mom also those yeah refers to herself asked mommy. It's weird because like her. It doesn't really translate to mommy but she translated to mommy because that is how she always define the term amah with me as just mom and it's just you know it's not like a kid ish title. It's it's just what my mom is. My specific subculture of chinese. The familiar name for mom is literally mummy. And then. Data's bobby moore. We have like more formal titles like almo- name means mother. So that's like way formal. That's yeah for for chinese. That's mooching but reading her mother's letters in her handwriting. Her handwriting is very girlish very young. And just like there's like doodles on her mother's letters They're very cute. And and see i kind of like. I kind of laughed when i read some of the english translations that she wrote next to difficult korean terms Because it's not one hundred percent accurate but but it's like you have the sense of fondness 'cause like oh you actually tried you picked up a dictionary anew. You made the effort so that your words could could deliver what you're trying to say. Even though it's it's not going to land one hundred percent. I know that a lot of people who read the letter said her mom is terrible. She's very narcissistic. She's talking about like how she's having such a great time in korea with her family and is so oblivious to daughters pain But for me. I didn't read it like that and i don't know if it's because my mom is korean and is very similar to g.'s. Mom not all korean. Moms are the same by the way but with my mom she. She tends to like brag about like what is happening in her life but she also like switches pretty quickly into like like. I'm depressed. i'm sad. This is what's like. I've sacrificed so much for you blah blah blah blah blah and when like all of the happy fluffy stuff happens in injuries. Mom's letters it. Just kind of seems like a facade to me like to tell her daughter like i'm having a good time so you should live your life to the fullest as well and also trying to like kind of make. It seem like it is. She's kind of justifying her reasons for for like leaving saying like. Oh well. i'm spending time with my sister who i haven't seen for fourteen years or whatever and i finally get the chance to connect with the family that i left behind so yeah to me. It came off as shallow but also it was. It was like a way to mask her pain. And i think i think her letters like definitely like she leaves out a lot and you have to glean her feelings and her guilt from what she doesn't right. Yeah i mean. I definitely got glimpses of guilt in between the the letters. And it's interesting because like it's interesting because the letters themselves are overall pretty upbeat and positive as opposed to the more melancholic tone of the actual memoir sections. So i can see why it was jarring for some people because you have his daughter who is going through a hard time while the mother is. You're everything is cool here but you're right like as a for myself as as a son of immigrants the son of a mother who you know my mom after my brother and i went to college left to go live with my dad because for what like ten years they were literally separated because of work but even i can tell that it was hard for her to be away from us. And there's something only what would you call people like us like reverse parachute. Kids were the parents. Were like for opportunity but like like. There's something that we can understand. Our parents didn't leave because they wanted to like they left for us like for the family and even though they're enjoying their lives better than they would have if they stayed here. It doesn't mean that they stop thinking about us or stop caring about where they're still working hard over there and for some parents it's like this is how they showed their parental love. There's at lying. They'll hit very close to any like asian kid or any as out of immigrants which is oh. I think i know which line you're talking about was going to pay for your children then to stay with them. Yes yes i felt like it kicked my heart and it's funny because with There's this line where she. She's with her mother and korea. I think i think it is in korea and her mom says and this is when the contract ends because her father doesn't renew his contract at her mom is like you need to appreciate the sacrifices that your dad has made. He's like worked very hard yet to like go out drinking with his boss and he's going to have liver failure Aren't you happy that you know we're coming back. And energy says something in her inner monologue saying that like she knows how hard her dad worked but at the same time she resent his sacrifice and i think that is something that a lot of asian american immigrant. Kids can can understand copays. You're a lot of times like the language barrier will make it very difficult for you to have heart to heart conversations. You're not just the language barrier the culture the culture as well so so it's just like you see your parents struggle and you know that they're doing this out of love but at the same time like their absence like you. You resent them like. I know you're doing this for me but also like why can't you stay with me. Why can't you understand that. Like i just need you to be there to support me rather than just make money and it's a it's a culture cultural difference like you said and the ironic thing is at least this is my assumption is even if they had stayed the relationship and probably wouldn't have improved that much because then you'd be annoyed that they're around all the time. It's really my With with angie. She has resentment for her parents for for leaving her. Mom tells her about all of the funds stuff that she's doing with her life and with me. It was the opposite because my parents choose to stay and i think like there's a lot of bad blood between my parents and myself and we have worked out a couple of things but growing up. There was this simmering resentment towards me because it was just like oh we could have gone but we stayed for you so you kind of have to like make up for our sacrifice and and there have been moments with with my mom. There's something with korean moms. And their daughters that bond is very turbulent very very close at the same time there have been moments in fights where my mom has has set like. If we had gone back to korea. I would have lived like a much better life or her saying like. Oh i wish we never came to america because our life would have been much better. And it's the opposite you know 'cause my parents resenting me rather than me presenting them. I do have a lot of resentment for my parents that is unresolved but reading this book. It made me feel kind of ashamed of myself. I'm because because like this memoir is about forgiveness. It's about coming to terms that like the past can't be made up. You know you have to live forward you have to instead of sacrifice let go and instead of trying to get your point across. You have to take the time to understand. So there's a lot of empathy and a lot of forgiveness in this memoir and it seems like i don't know what life is like now but it seems like she has come to some sort of peace with with her her parents and her past and pass resentments but i'm not there yet so so when i was reading this book i was like oh i wish i could get to that point of letting go and having having peace but like i said like i'm not there yet so it did make me feel bad but also at the same time it made me think that it's possible. I don't know how much older is compared to me. But it's like i'll get there at some point or at least i hope i get better at some point. I mean that's a successful book. Write something that can let you reflect on your own life. And like i said. I can't empathize with the mother daughter relationship. But i don't have that with my momma have a mother son relationship which i imagine is a little different. But i'm glad to hear that you had such a. I guess that would be a positive reaction to the book right. I would say. I would say it's a. It's an optimistic reaction to the book. I actually thought that al would break down crying reading this book because of so many like get like it's not really parallels like i said it's like complete opposite but i was just like oh i'm going probably break down crying because you know like i'm kind of at a place where things are unresolved whereas with her. It's a complete story. But at the but i didn't cry. I felt all of her words very deeply. I felt her pain. I understood it. And i really admired her efforts to empathize and the fact that she even put in the work to translate forty nine letters. I can't imagine like how painful that must have been because you're reliving your childhood but at the same time there's enough distance that you have perspective and you know. She wasn't good at korean before but now as an adult she's a translator so she's able to see the meaning behind her mother's words or the meaning behind the absence of some of her words. And i was just i was just like i. I don't know if i could do that to myself. I don't know if i could like if my mom had a diary for example. I don't think i can go through and read it. I don't know much about my family's history but like for her to dig into her grandmother's histories from both sides and to read about the violence that happened and the depression and also just like the struggles that they had and to trace that trauma and understand her mother more of like how she became the person that she is today it takes a lot of bravery and it takes a lot of empathy. And i really admired her efforts for it. Yeah i mean. I feel like we talked about this. I think when we talked about pachinko liquid years ago now but sometimes we forget as kids who grew up in the states is our grandparents grew up in time when it was this constant war. If you weren't at war with japan you were at war with each other. Right in china and korea. How to deal with both. The invasion of the japanese empire and subsequent civil war brought on by the conflict between united states capitalism and soviet communism right and even our parents both south korea and make for myself for taiwan. Those two places were under martial law until like the late eighties early nineties. I in grandparents grew up in the very unstable time and dot also affected how they view the world. I really appreciated the chapters that she dedicated to her grandparents. Spicier grandmother co which reminded me of like all former grandparents have passed away. And so like. There's no i can't go learn about their their past. I have to do that through secondhand sources that my father and my mother and so i kind of know their stories. But i don't know the details from them personally and that's something that i probably will regret for the rest of my life. But the fact that she took the time to not only document her grandma experiences but like put it down in prose thousand really really amazing end. I learned about the island massacre through his book. I'm sure you know for koreans. It's like a big thing but it reminded me during that time like at anytime. He can be accused of being too slow. You in like just murdered for no reason because it was more so law. Yeah and tells you. Island is is is kind of different like mainlanders kind of looked at ted. You island as like an island for prisoners. You know. they didn't really view the islanders. As part of the nation as much as like the other parts of of of korea so just like reading that chapter where people are just being accused of of just nothing and just being killed for no reason except for The soldiers venting out their frustration. Making them feel power full. That was really hard to read And like with from what. I understand It wasn't clear on whether or not macos father was murdered on the streets like that. I read her acknowledgements and she said. The details are unclear but one thing that was clear was that he was innocent and he got killed he got murdered. So that is like one creative part of the memoir and the thing is like we hear stories secondhand like you said So the details are going to be fuzzy and you have to fill them in yourselves or you have to ask your parents and the details still might be wonky so there is that there will be some creative license to make. The story feel cohesive. Yeah and the chapter on human co was. I think it was really well done. Especially because it also paints like even if you're from asia you can still be a perpetual outsider. Just like she is when she goes to career and we she goes japan like her grandmother was raised as japanese girl and then they returned to career. By moving to jeju island which is kind of like an enclave for you know korean. Yeah i mean like for the thing that makes treasury islands special. It's a very matriarchal society with the female divers. They're the ones who provide for the family. And i. i don't know about the dice bora but one thing was clear was kimiko. Had to erase her japanese accent and when she was in japan like her parents had to get rid of their korean accent. So language definitely has a lot to play with how you present your identity and what you have to hide in order to blend in ya. And i think what was really heartbreaking about grandma. Clinical story was also that you know you can see parallels where she was also someone who had a lifelong resentment with her own mother. Inner chapter at the she comes to peace with her mother side of it but not with the anger. Well there's this running theme of shoot. I forgot like the exact korean superstition. But the you become the parent of who you wronged. Most you'd be you become the mud mother of the daughter that around most or something like that. There's like a buddhist reincarnation concept and therefore it's uncanny with the amount of parallels and similarities. That engy has with her mother. And and how that's just been inherited. We talked a lot about her paternal grandmother kumiko but there's also parallelism with her mother's mother tune because june leaves her family and she struggles with bulimia and her mother tries really hard to get her mother to come back home and she eventually does But there but there is still resentment for leaving in the first place and and just like the depression that follows. Yeah like the parallelism is pretty uncanny. And it just goes to show that trauma trauma can be inherited and shit like stands generations. And you know like knowing your parents story and how they've been raised and what trauma. What wrongs were done to them. You kind of see a complete picture of your parents right and you know like at that point. It's like you can't blame them for hurting you because they were hurt as well And i think when the moment you see your parents as humans as people who also went through a lot of pain. I think that's when you become an adult yourself because when you're a kid you're just gonna blame your parents for everything and all the pain that you go through is it. Feels like it's gonna last forever like gee wrote in her book but seeing how your family history played out it gives you a better understanding but that anger and resentment can stay another chapter. I related to personally. Is the chapter where g goes to visit her mother. I think it was right after high school right in korea and this is probably the first time she visits her mother in korea since they left and her mother takes her on a shopping spree right. Yeah like my thumb is not as well off as family in korea. But i've been on that trip where you know your your parents haven't seen you in the wild southeast. Wanna spoil the crap out of you but it's not really offering what you need. you know. yeah. I've been on a lot of air shopping. Sprees not not strictly with whenever i go to korea but i don't think it's kind of like how it's money is a love language for a lot of asian parents. So they try to make up for their absence and for the wrong that they've done to you with this with money so i've gone on a lot of guilt shopping sprees and you know like it's just like both of you know what it is right. It's like okay. We're gonna we're gonna pretend that everything is okay. And that you are being a doting parent and You buying me. This really expensive jacket is going to make up for some of the stuff that you've done to me but Yeah like i could definitely relate to reading reading chapter. And i really liked the the part of the book where she goes to japan. Because this is before you hear about Windies paternal grandmother kumiko. So so like. She goes to japan when she's like seventeen for like this very extensive Language program for for the summer and you know she tells herself. I'm not going to go to a restaurant until i can order perfectly and japanese have all the mannerisms down and as she staying in japan. She you know befriends the people that she interacts with on a daily basis and a couple of them. Tell her like. Are you sure. You're korean or american because you act japanese like you must have been japanese like in former life or something and then jumps into the story of her paternal grandmother and how she grew up in japan. And how when she was being raised by her grandmother in california she would catch glimpses of her japanese her japanese business and i thought that was just like a very smooth transition. I guess but it was very interesting. How like how dedicated to the language. That energy was really weird. Because you would think that she would go to korea for like a very extensive language program instead of japan. Yeah i guess. I didn't put the two together until now but that is like because like you. She wasn't very fluent in korean as a teenager. So you would think that she would try to master it at a Master like after high school and be close to her mom and stuff like that but she chose japanese so i thought that was a very interesting choice and the chapter on like her going to what i'm assuming. Uc irvine was also really interesting the fact that she took her poetry classes in a trailer classroom. And i don't know if they have these in where you when you went to college but the uc's because we're always under construction. A lot of classes took place in trailers. I personally took many classes in trailers. So i was really like it. Took me back to my college. Days of non-permanent buildings. Yeah i didn't take classes in trailers at at nyu simply because it's in manhattan. And where where are we going to find that. But also nyu is like the greatest real estate holder in manhattan. I think columbia was at one point but nyu beat them out. It's it's the fucking worst. But i've been to like trailer classrooms in high school because our high school was poor and we didn't have enough classrooms to house like the the overpopulation of student. So it wasn't like i didn't have reference for that but i thought it was really interesting. That poetry class was like her math. Medics mathematics credit advisors setup power. If i had known that. I wouldn't onto my academic adviser a lot more often. I mean like we. We needed a science course for our for our gen. Ed and i took took children's literature as as my science course because it was technically it was technically a psychology class. That's awesome but i really liked the fact that her taking a random poetry class like changed everything for her and it was really. It was really moving that her professors were able to see her talent and really pushed for her to pursue it and I really liked the scene. Where she's taking her first poetry class and her professor is reading the artichoke poem and the class doesn't really understand the poem they're like. Why are we reading this. Like what's the like. What is the meaning. Can you just tell us what the means and her professor says. it's not meant to be given. it is difficult grace and that just made me. Think about indies mother's letters. Because it's like you're going to be searching that letter for. I guess like an apology and just like just like an explanation for why. She decided to abandon her children. But you won't find it you have to you know it's not just going to be given to you on a silver platter. You have to actually take the time to look at each word and each meaning. And i thought that was like i dunno like a very poignant quote yeah i mean that's one of the themes of this book is the fact that like language isn't simple language hold layers and meaning depending on who says it when it said when red and one it's understood i really liked. How one of her advisors tells her like you you know you have a gift for writing but you know you. You don't have to forgive your mother. I'm not telling you to forgive her. But the poll must forgive her or the poem must forgive you for not otherwise. It's not a poem and her adviser tells her that you can like raw feelings on paper does not equal poetry like you need to have perspective into have distance and It and poetry really kicks off angie's journey to forgive her mom not forgive but at least let go of a lot of like the resentment and hurt that she's been carrying and i mean yeah yeah and it also gives her like direction for the first time right because you know she was really into dance but it wasn't what she ended up what she wanted to do pursue and she was thinking about dropping out from school before finding poetry. Yeah and poetry really gives her the language. I know we keep saying language. But it's part of the tight magical language of others. Poetry gives her a language where she could really express herself whereas with korean japanese and english. It always seems like she kind of compartmentalize. A lot of her feelings and poetry becomes a language on its own for her to like really unpack a lot of the feelings that she had locked up and allows her to be free. And yeah you re you can really tell how much she loves poetry and how much she loves writing and and the gratitude that she found it and that leads to her also picking up translation as the discipline as well in grad school right. Yeah no that leads her to reflect on the act of translating. Which is you know not just literally translating the words from one language to another but finding the meaning and the fact. That tries is also interpreting. Yeah there's this wonderful line where she says translating means that she has to speak in her mother's voice when she is translating the letters and it gives it gives her perspective and gets her inside her mother's head and Yeah like translating becomes of really big part of her process in in forgiveness and for giving herself for for holding onto that resentment. Yeah like her parents. Coming back to america that part the part where her parents come back in immediately start questioning her twice. A profession is such a quintessential these in the american experience. Especially for those of us who are in the creative arts. I mean i get it like every time. Every time i speak with my parents it is. It is something that comes up. Obviously like i'm like. I'm not an award-winning poet. I am definitely like not up there in terms of skills so i feel like with my parents telling me what are you doing with your life. I feel like they have more ground. But with mundi's ks like you know she's you know she is teaching. She has her. Mfa and you know that is her work. I love the part where her mom was bragging to. Her friends about undies like getting a house at the beach but never really mentioning what she actually does. Well her mom says i don't understand. My daughter teaches people to let go. And you like. It's even know her parents are like you know like you're you're not going to be a poet forever volvo even though they criticize her her career i think her mom really understands how much poetry has done for her because i towards the end of the book like her mom says like you were always meant to be a poet and like i said like i think her mother really understands what poetry has done for her. Even though she criticizes i guess the the monetary successive. Yeah and like you mentioned a lot of people read the letters and get upset about the mother and they think it's interesting that Gee herself calls that out in her book because she has an anecdote about what. I'm assuming is a white dude coming up after a reading and asking her weisensee more mad at her mother for abandoning her. Yeah i think that is. I think that is criticism. That i've read most in good reads reviews. I'm looking at some of the comments that were made in our in our in our thread and a lot of people said they love this book wrote. I really loved this book. Similar to put shinko code told the story of generational trauma and ultimately lands on the power of forgiveness and that forgiveness is something that can take place over a long period of time. Potentially of time and yeah. I think i think that really sums it up right like with the white dude being like. Hey why why are you not not. Why are you not matter at your mom for abandoning you. And it's like it's not that simple and Three poetry through a number of years. benji was able to reach that level of peace. So yeah holding onto anger. It's tiring at some point. You're just gonna destroy ourselves rather than yeah. It's great to see that. Gee was able to find a way to release those feelings through poetry To a point where even if she's not fully over the things that happened to her she can forgive her mother for her role in it. Yeah i think i. This was in her mother's letter and it was brought up by harrison in our good reads forums. And he wrote i especially like the quote. If you love yourself everything rolls along. It should if you want to accomplish something truly love yourself and i think that's pretty much much. What did a like. She went through a lot as a teenager and there was a lot of self doubt and she really didn't know what direction she was taking by. Poetry really gave her a way to release all of those feelings and Really learn to embrace herself and her identity. So yeah like i think that quotas pretty poignant as well yes. So as he draw this conversation to a close Any last thoughts about the mental anguish of others. I think we were pretty thorough in our in our analysis of especially as to you know children of immigrants and not that long by the way this book is like what like two hundred pages. Yeah like for for such a small book carried so much is just a power poetry. maybe maybe Like i said like reading. This book was very personal and emotional journey for me. I can only hope that. I will find the peace that engy found and it is similar for me like writing. I'm not so sure about it now. But when i was a teenager when i was in college writing helped me a lot and it became a huge part of my identity and i can understand her gratitude to poetry for helping her find a way to express herself. And actually this. This has nothing to do with the memoir but he was the very first author. I've ever interviewed so. Wow i interviewed her back in two thousand thirteen and this was when she was still in new york. I think she had come out with a a novel. I think it was a fantasy novel at the time. And you can't find it anywhere. It's it's gone but it was my first time interview an author. It was my first time talking to an actual writer who is not my professor so i remember snippets from what she talked about. In her memoir. And it's crazy to me that nine ten years a sense we've done that interview like she has grown to be this magnificent writer out too. I thought it was like a really weird coincidence. 'cause because like ej co. I was like oh. That's the same name as the author. I interviewed when i was like twenty one twenty two but it's probably not her but then i checked and it was like oh no oh no. It is here so when i was reading the part in the book where she's in new york and she's doing her mfa. I was like oh. This is around the time. That i discovered her. So it's so it's like a really weird meta thing that i went through reading this book but just wanted to reading this book. Put me in reflective mood as well you know i started thinking about my own relationship with my parents and what are some ways that my dad being not around affected me. And it's something that i've also discovered as i got older once you start being able to actually talk to your parents as like fellow adults and gain the language to relate to them now. This book will mean different things to different people but for people like me people like us. I think there's like an extra layer that really really that resonated with us. It's a secret language. So yeah thank you. Angie co for reading this amazing book and you know letting us feel things and respect on our own lives and yeah i guess that all donald do it for this discussion of the magical language others by ej co if you read the book tell us your thoughts on on our forums and we already having discussion going there but we always love to hear what our book club members think about a book club picks and with that rira were do something special for the month of february for a booklet.

Click a presentation of c. originals cadence. Thirteen studio is available now on apple podcasts. Spotify odyssey wherever you get your podcast well My darling welcome welcome. Welcome to a very special. I think recording of the yoga girl podcast conversations from the heart. It is midnight right now. I think you can tell by my voice that it's not middle of the day and all this energy but it's midnight and midnight and sweden means i'm looking out at this beautiful view of the lake in front of me and the sky still is pretty bright. I mean the sun has set it set like an hour and a half two hours ago. Maybe two hours ago but i mean it's not dark you know. That's what summertime or getting close summertime in sweden is like. It's still semi bright outside. I have candles lit all over this beautiful cabin where we're staying right now. Spent the entire day cleaning this cabin. And i mean deep cleaning if feels really good and you know i have a four year old sleeping in our little loft upstairs who might wake up completing crying for me at any moment. She's not really sleeping while going to bedwell. Well she wants sleep at nine thirty tonight. So i took the last hours of this evening to just have some me time like made some vegan tacos and eight guacamole and watch netflix. Which haven't done in a really long diamond. It was really beautiful. And i just clean. The kitchen spotted go to bed. I mean as i said it's midnight and you know i really should be in bed. I have a kid that wakes up at seven every day. And then somehow i find myself. Taking out my podcast. Equipments not because they have to. I mean i could record this show tomorrow. I'll find font. Find a moment in the day. But here i am. You know. sometimes. I and it happens with this show that i find myself. Absolutely just intuitively guided to record. Speak to share. Most of the time. When i recorded i have no clue what i'm gonna talk about. I mean if you listen to this show you know i- wing it every day of my life. I'm just winging it. You know. I just for this show. I just turn on the mike. And i talk you know. It's really rare. That i have a plan or a topic or an idea or you know if i have a guest than yes i have an idea but most of the time it's just me and there's a lot of really beautiful things unfolding in my life right now as i say those words i just closed my eyes as i said those words. I'm kind of teleported back to sitting in my podcast room at the top of our house at home in aruba crying because i was so sick and feeling such despair you know not knowing what was wrong and i remember. I had had so many times this year. Recording this show. I was feeling so much grief and so much despair and i kept saying i mean i think i set it in maybe three or four episodes that i know there's going to be a moment when i get to sit down and record this show and i feel great for you know. I said that. When i was really sick and i was the know why i was sick. I didn't know why didn't get better. You know for months and months. And then i found out we had toxic mold in every control of our house and we had to move out and we lost our home and our normalcy and our lives and i cried recording this show and i said i know there's going to be moment to sit down recording this show somewhere and feel grateful. Things will make sense and sitting here right now at midnight on may nineteenth in the middle of the woods in a tiny cabin in sweden. I can take this breath and cry and say that moment is now moment is now i guess. That's what brought me to recording this show in the middle of the night right now and not tomorrow because that dawning that really station that gratitude. It chest came highway. Just it just happened. I mean i've been feeling a lot of gratitude over the past couple of days if you follow me on. Instagram is shattered. Some just really beautiful days. Like i find myself at the end of the day just looking through my story like share little snippets. Come barely on my phone. Sometimes i'll share a lot of instagram story. And maybe it looks like i'm sharing a lot. But you know i might be sharing a fifteen second snippet and then another fifteen seconds lipid and i do that a couple of times for the rest of the day. I forget i have a phone. You know or sharing something at the end of the day. And it's like i am not. I'm not align not in my inbox. I'm not taking any meetings not talking to anybody. I'm not stressing about anything. I'm sitting at the end of the day kind of looking through those little snippets of of my story that day. And i'm like. Wow wow this is beautiful for wow our lives right now really are something else you know and these last few days it's been building a little bit. Today is our marks. The third week of our stay here in sweden. And i think the first first week was a little bit of shock like transition. Just how did we end up here. And whoa what is this now and okay and then the second week was kind of a settling. I think grounding a softening coming down kind of almost like i was putting down my armor you know one layer at a time and then this last week. It's been it's been building to joy and all this week have had a little more a little more gratitude every day a little more. Wow wow and today. I mean there was nothing special about to say other than that. It's the best day of my life. And i've had so many of these days you know this week just days that in the grand scheme of things you know. I'm not accomplishing anything or winning any awards or doing something extraordinary. You're doing any of. The things that i would have imagined would be best day. You know. i'm just. I'm just in in this cabin. You know today we. We woke up and i decided we have to clean. You know. it's time to clean the cabin. We had a lotta ants in the kitchen. I've been making dandy lion honey or danny line sarah and left it on the counter and we had like an aunt explosion and i was like oh man. Okay i'll get a really clean. So i started cleaning and then i realized oh i really really enjoy this process of really cleaning and i mean in a room at home like we have help at home. We have katamon. I mean i. I've spoken about her on the show. Not that much but katamon. She's she's part of the family. You know she. She helps us at the house. If we end up moving to sweden. We're bringing her here me. She really wants that. she's she's married to a dutch guy and everyone they both want to move so yeah but but at home in a rubai have help this amazing human who helps me around the house so and i mean i'm cleaning and organizing and picking up stuff and i'm doing the things of the day today all day. I mean i feel like all. I do is clean but it's not true because they have help right. So the deep cleaning stuff like getting out the vacuum and like taking things out of the cupboards to wipe down the the shelves. And you know the deep cleaning stuff like even like changing the sheets. I rarely do like she does that for us. And i've lost the bit of that connection to what it's like to really tend to my own home of course having help at the house that's been one of those things that was like a milestone for me that i want to get to a place. I can afford to hire help. So i can focus on work so i can focus on laos so i can mostly work mostly work. You know. come home at the end of a long day and and not have to clean the house. You know not have get rid of one of those layers of stress. It's been this amazing thing. And i'm grateful for that every day and also she's gonna. She's a part of the family. She's a companion that. I talked to a friend every day. Four but it's also kind of made me a bit disconnected to what it's really like to tend to your own home. I mean really like these basic basic basic things that i've been taken for granted for a while you know how long it's been. Since i hung my own laundry outside like we have a drier at home. It's been a long time since i hung. I mean when when we cleaned out all of our clothes from all the toxic mold. I hung every every sweater. Every all of that like i had to have. We had to hand washing. And i hung all of that but it was not the same. You know that was like a panic. Moment of trying to salvage are items but just that regular day to day like hanging out your sheets from the wash to dry you know on the line between a couple of trees and the sun like i don't do that. That's not part of my regular day. You know if i'm doing laundry. I throw it in the dryer and i'm done with it you know. That's it like a lot of that basic tending to go to the home. Like you know how long it's been. Since they built a fire. I i was trying to think about that the other day. I can't remember. I literally cannot remember the last time i made a fire chopped wood. I don't know if i've chopped wood and lane tire life truthfully. Honestly i know are some house. When i was little we had a fire. I never attended the fire. I never chopped and he would. I can't remember who did that. Like i'm gonna assume. Sooner was my mom or an uncle. I don't i don't know. I don't know but those kinds of basic things of you know just just deep cleaning those cabinet so we did that today or we saying we. It's just me like alone here. I have a four year old. She thinks she's helping. She's mostly making messes right but she's like helping slash exploring flash playing through the day and then we took breaks to eat and had breakfast and then kept cleaning and vacuuming everything and then made lunch and you know how to smack and like just the whole day was just like i cleaned out every part of this cabin and hung a bunch sheets and laundry and when everything was done you know when the whole like that feeling of the whole entire house like knowing everything is clean and spotless. And it's not even my house you know. I don't own this house like we're renting the space really temporarily but there is a feeling data contentment feeling of being really content. And then we went down to the dock and i took a swim. The longest cold swim. I've i'm pad since we came here a long. I really feel like i can. I can swim across the lake. Now like that's how i feel about it gets. It's not that like the cold it's good. It's really good and laya thinks she's swimming. She's dipping her feet and she's like i swam to and i'm like shirk she'd you know and then we're running back up from the lake chasing ringo and just there's a lot of laughter all day you know really allow through all day and then yesterday. We went to the museum of natural history. Which has been this thing that les as wanted to do forever and she got a little umbrella at the gift shop so when we came back from the swim it started raining and raining a lot a lot like kind of a heavy rain right away and i was like oh shit we have all his laundry took me all day and just just hung it and i got. Oh no oh no. And i see laos face just lights up. She's like mama. It's raining and i'm like yeah. I know she's no. I use my umbrella and she's so excited about it. You know like you know what you're right it's rain it's just fucking rain. You know who cares pop laundry. It's just laundry like yeah. Let's use your umbrella. Like what do you want to do. She says. I want to have a snack under the umbrella. Like okay so. I made some. He got some cookies and she wanted an avocado just who she is and we just huddled together underneath this tiny. I mean it was like a kid umbrella. You know one of those tiny little kid like child sized umbrella. We're like huddling under this umbrella to sitting there watching the laundry. Get wet you know and i swear to god. It's like my one of the best moments of my life. You know i i really i can't. I can't really explain it more than that. You know. and then at the end of the day and this was such a treat. This was like the best treat of all time. I got a massage every day since we came here. I've had and i've been trying to figure it out. Like i have this unbelievable back tension not the same kind of back pain normally. How but it's kind of like wake up in the morning and it feels like i lifted weights the before or like i went to cross fit or i'm sore. It's like i feel run over by something. I wake up every day and it's like i can barely move my head. My neck is so tight so tense my whole back as a matter. How much yoga or self massage. Or i'm lying on this little. Like shock de matt like sitting with infrared light. I'm doing all the stuff like rubbing myself with cd at night and you know. Every morning i wake up the same so today i i got a massage. This girl came to the house and it was such a treat and i had a whole entire hour. Laya watched movie and had dinner. And i got a massage and it was just. It was magic. It was magic magic magic magic and then that's left. I put to bed only took two hours. You know it's kind of like our days are amazing. Bedtime is fucking shit. But it's okay. Like i'm not even gonna complain about that time like bedtime. It sucks. she doesn't want to go to bed. she's four it is what it is. Our days are so good. It doesn't matter the time sucks you know but it does bring me to this place of when she's finally asleep because i don't have a second to myself all day. You know at nine thirty. I wanna go to bed too. You know it's like i'm tired but that's my alone time right. That's the time all by myself. Something no i need to do something like enjoy like i just need to be you know. Isn't he be need to be alone for a moment. So i had my tacos and watch them at blix and then literally like after. Just clean up the kitchen about to go upstairs to go to bed. It's midnight. i had this moment of of gratitude is just really fucking hit me and it hit me in this way of not like epiphany earth shattering like holy shit. You know it's happened and everything makes sense now in life is perfect. No i mean we still have a place to live. We still don't know where we're going to. We still have no clarity about anything. But i really grateful right now. I'm really really really really really grateful. And i can even say that all the things that happened that brought us to this place. I'm really grateful that they help. And that might sound strange. You don't because what happened was that we lost her home and all of our belongings and all three of us got really sick right. It's like all bad things. But i'm really really really grateful that that i got here. I'm really grateful that i found out what was happening to our bodies. I mean the. I cannot emphasize enough. The difference. I feel in my entire being in my body. People ask him. How's your health. And i don't even want to answer. I don't know how to answer those things. Because i feel so different like every day. There's a new something that shift changes. I really feel like i'm. I'm like in a metamorphosis or something. Like i'm coming out of the cocoon and i don't know what tomorrow is so. I'm in sweden with my daughter living off grid and a little cabin in the woods. When i first got here.

What the mold. And this is hard to explain for someone that hasn't hasn't had the experience of toxic. Won't i have one friend who's had the experience and she's the only one i can talk to. I talked to other friends about stuff. But i can't get that you know resonance of someone looking at you and they see you the understand like you cannot understand. You can't have this conversation with people who haven't been through it. You just can't but basically living with mold toxicities kind of like having a parasite inside of your body. It's kind of like having a a parasite inside of your body and three years ago. When i was working with working with dr jess i was really really sick. The no we had mold right. Had people tell me. Are you sure you don't have mold. People came to the house. No you don't have mold. We had all. But we didn't find it and i got all these tests done and it came out that i have. I had candida my system which is overgrowth of bacteria in your in your stomach. It's like you're microbiome in your in your gut is totally off and you basically have fungus in your digestive system right so can dida. I mean you sure you can nita's it's pretty common fairly common thing people know about now and that's what the test said then and we'll doctor just said as she said that she's a are you sure you don't have mould at home. I said no. We had its inspection and they said no we don't and it's so dry here i mean we couldn't have mould she said you know what like cadenas usually it's like it's like molds little sister you know like where there's condado there is almost always mold like candida the source can eat as a symptom of mold like you're living with mold. Which is your living with all this fungus right and your breathing in all of this all of these spores and all these micro-toxins and eventually the fungus literally starts to grow inside of your stomach right as can dida or sometimes it's cbo like overgrowth of some bacteria like there's lots of stuff that can happen but she said okay so all these things you have going on which i had then which i still had three years later right. Things like massive That would just show up out of the blue and nocco away things like bouts of depression questioning everything in my life feeling really low on energy feeling really tired all the time having a sugar craving and i'm i'm not kidding. A sugar craving that was completely unmanageable wanting to drink wine. All the time right the feeling of like at the end of the day. I had to have a glass of wine. It was almost like. I didn't have the option to feel is is a social moment where i want to enjoy glass of wine. It was like glass of wine was was what my body needed to settle at the end of the day. That's a really fucked up thing right. I mean truly like now that i really think of it and you guys know me like. I'm not a hater of sugar. Or why i love sugar. I love line. I love baking enjoying wine with friends and madonna's at dinner like i am really relaxed person when it comes to to foods and and and and everything but that feeling of not having a choice that is fucked up. That is something. I do not stand behind i mean. I don't want to live that way and what doctor said then was. She's you know all those things that you have going on. I need you to to know that it's not you. It's not you and that you don't have any willpower to like naughty. Sugar notching the wine or not feel tired. you know. it's not that something is wrong with you. It's literally the condado inside of your body. Wants all of these things. And it's fucking with your brain and she said that so many times as you said you need to think of this as you have a parasite living inside of you and the condado wants to be fed. And what is it want wants. Sugar wants alcohol you know and it messes with your brain crates all of these functions in the brain that literally gives you anxiety that gets you press. That happens and it didn't get it at the time. I really didn't. I did that. A condado kind of cleanse and they felt like i was more depressed at the end of that because it couldn't enjoy anything in life and also i changed so many things about my life. I didn't i didn't know what worked at the end of it. It just got a little better not all better clearly but a little better and the now it's two years later and i'm here on the other end of it right. Having had almost a month no more than a month. they've had a month and a half without mold. Exposure almost two months actually with no. Yeah wait is it. Are two month anniversary today. Could be actually say had two months without mold exposure one month of this cleanse that have been doing three weeks in sweden breathing forest era swimming in the lake. Eating organic foods like there's been stages to my healing here. And this week i can say fully confidently that i have kicked my sugar addiction that i i don't i don't need i don't need to bake. I don't have that feeling of. I need to have something around the house for me to enjoy. I have no craving for sugar anymore. And it's almost like. I could envision that being a thing that that would actually. I don't know how to explain almost like i thought that my personality was really based around sugar right and i'm not just talking. I would drink a lot of fruit smoothies and fruit juices and needed hanna. Fruits and all of that but he know i baked free day and i would go between like you know always big vegan of course but i baked with a ton tana sugar. I would bake like three layer cakes and cinnamon rolls and cookies and like you know as followers media. You'd see him always frigging baking. I would eat sweets every day kind of all day like after every savory meal i had this feeling like i need something sweet and i was kind of ashamed to talk about that or to share that because i had this feeling of. This isn't healthy. But also i don't want to be that person who's like. Oh you can't have any sugar because everything's bad for you be afraid of food because i'm not like that either but i did have this feeling like something is not right not because of the fact that i eat sugar sometimes but because i had that feeling like i didn't have a choice. That's the thing that i that i really felt wasn't right like i couldn't control it almost like i was completely out of touch with my body for real and now i think it's because i'm in touch with my body in that sense. It's almost like the mold left my system in at least a big enough way that i got my intuition back.

I was talking to my friend today. He also had this this exposure to mould mould mould illness and she said it in exactly the way i would describe it. Which is when you get exposed to mold. The feeling is of your entire system. If you have that scary monster from stranger things inside of your body. I've seen stranger things right if you haven't you need to see it's such a good show like demon monster that lives in the wall in stranger things that it's like a hark terrifying being that just kind of devours everything in its path. That's what it feels like. That's what mold illness feels like. That's what it feels like. I've had leading the way in my body over these past years. And i've had to fight. I can't even tell you. I've had to fight to take care of myself. I mean it's been so hard and have had. I've had cycles where i felt like trying hard enough. I've shamed myself. I felt really guilty. I felt like there's something wrong with me. Why can't i stop eating sugar. When i know sugar makes me feel like shit. Why do i have to have a glass of wine at the end of every night when i know it makes me feel like shit. Why can't i sleep better right. Can i go to bed earlier. Why am i getting shitty sleep. And then i had these cycles. Where okay i would get up at four in the morning and get into this cycle of. Here's what i need to do. I need three hours of self care every morning. And i still believe hundred percent five. Am club like i mean everyday. I'm not doing that now. You know along with kid. But i i dream of a day where i'll get back to that but it was almost like the things i would have to do to feel like i'm taking care of myself. The that that mountain was so fucking big and it took so much effort it took so much effort and at the end of the day. I still didn't feel great right almost like i would maximize my input for self care. Take as good care of myself. As i possibly fricking could right and at the end of the day i still didn't feel great. So where's my motivation right. I went through those cycles. I mean a million times where okay. I'm gonna eat raw food for a month. I'm just gonna juice. i'm gonna. I'm gonna fast like it'd fasting for months i fasted. You guys didn't talk about this. Because i think fasting is like a highway to eating disorders. Fasting can be super epic and great. Like i feel. I've had many times where i feel. Amazing fasting intuitively. But i don't wanna be the influence sir that promotes fasting because there's a lot of people recovering from eating disorders. Who listen to this show right and follow me online. So i'd never spoke about fasting. And how i felt about that so okay just a little note like just because i did that an and sometimes it worked for me and some things. It didn't doesn't mean it's for you right. What really is for us. Is what intuitively feels right for us. And that's where i feel like. I lost that intuition completely. So i would go through those cycles of forcing myself okay. I'm cutting out sugar. I'm not gonna drink. i'm not gonna have any gluten. I'm cutting all flowers out of my diet getting up at four am. I'm doing this workout. And i'm running. I'm doing yoga dancing. And i'm doing these open and i'm doing everything everything. Mike maxing it into a day. That's already really full right. And then after weeks of that nothing changed in my body. I mean i'm really serious about that. I could have one entire month of raw food and juice. And no sugar or anything. And i have i would have to force. It wasn't easy you know. Not eating sugar was like you know i could shudder just thinking about it like i don't want to. It was kind of it. Felt wrong intuitively. Doing the wrong thing for my body was awful and so hard. And i could do that for a bunch of weeks and nothing would change. I didn't feel better. Nothing changed in my body. Didn't lose any weight. Like it wouldn't matter if i eat ice cream everyday and drink wine every day or fasted and drank rangers. Nothing changed in my body. And that's what mold dos and this for me has been such an eye opening thing to actually realize that it. There was nothing wrong with me. It wasn't that my willpower was lacking it wasn't that my disciplined was bad. Like i wasn't trying hard enough like mold makes it impossible for your body to hold onto anything. Good mold lowers your immune system until it's in the fucking basement. An every tiny little thing that you come across you take in and you get sick right. Mold makes you tired and you stay tired all day and it also makes you really hyper and released stressed out and anxious. You can fall asleep at night even though you know you need sleep because you're tired because you're not sleeping you into the cycle right. Mold makes you depress makes you sad makes you feel like life is a bad place like it's hopeless right mall makes it makes you on to the bad things in your body makes it impossible for your body to detoxify at blocks all your talks pathways. So that everything else enters your system like all the other toxins that your breathing from exhaust fumes. Like when you're walking on the road to water that is perfect to non-organic vegetables to cleaning products in your kitchen. All the little toxins that you're exposed to everyday because we all are when you're exposed to mold and you're suffering from old illness. Your body just absorbs fucking everything in it adds to the crisis that you're already experiencing and i spent all this time thinking something was wrong with me and now i really think that was my moment of that led me to gratitude is that i have no sugar craving anymore and i thought i thought my alma for years for decades. I've thought that that's just who i am my personalities. I'm one of those people who need something sweet all the time. I'm one of those people who just after every meal. Like i want a little something. I want a little cookie. I want a little piece of chocolate. I want something. I want some ice cream at the end of the day. Foreshore watching that with my husband. Like i need something you know and that sue i am turns out. That's not who i am at all. That's mold gus. My body completely suffering shutdown and what few feeds the data and the overgrowth of bullshit and my system is sugar right. That's the only thing that keeps all the bad stuff alive and that keeps my body inflamed. So it's almost like this demon inside of me has been craving all this stuff and it hasn't been me and now i've had the last few days really able to sense this intuition inside of my body for the first time in so long an example of that is classic can be with people. And then everyone's like. Oh let's have a little fico. Fica and swedish snack time and you have a couple times a day where you have a coffee and something sweet and that's culture here. Everybody has fica everyday day at some point. It's always like cake in coffee or something. Like that. And i can be around all these people eating delicious shit like. I know i could eat that. It'd be delicious. And i don't want it and it's not like i shouldn't eat sugar some making myself not eat that no not at all. It's o- i genuinely don't want that and i don't think i've felt that way about something sweet in entire life ever ever. I've stayed away from sugar. I have forced myself to not have sugar. If i wanted to lose weight or i want to be healthier where you have this idea that i shouldn't have sugar or i'm trying to have sugar. You know not. Just the feeling of oh i don't want that and then not having it you know and then today when we were sitting in the little under our little umbrella and the rain i had this feeling like got an espresso machine for the cabin. Because i've been laughing about that so much with my friend but it's kind of like the little luxury denizen have every morning as he makes me a cappuccino an oath cappuccino every day. And we love our cappuccinos. And i have one a day. Sometimes i'll have to but one as like my thing. And i don't like the americano like swedish we call it big cather which is like water pours through thing and then you get this kind of watery coffee. I really don't like it and had coffee. I mean. I normally drink coffee every morning. And then i got this espresso machine and i know this it's amazing. The coffee's great right and then today like let's have a little fica under our umbrella. I'm like I know a coffee right now would be crate. Oh that would be so good. But then i took a breath. And i'm like. I don't really want coffee. And my brain goes but a cappuccino an oats cappuccino favorite thing and then my body went by right now. I don't want it and my brain went but you love owed cappuccinos. I mean a little cappuccino. That's it's way more luxurious like. It's more special indulgence to have a cappuccino that it is to have tea or something. Have a cappuccino and my body went. No i don't want it. And i actually got to witness my brain and my body. Have this conversation around habit. it's a habit. have your okay pacino. And it's like yeah. But i don't want it but it's but it's better. It's nicer than a cup of whatever herbal tea. You're gonna but don't want it you know and then we got outside and had these look cookies. Like they're called. Tom and jerry cookies every swedish burs those what they are told me. Yeah to kicks. It's like the same cookie i had. I was laos h like when i was four like that's what we had. It's like little like they're really kind of shitty cookies. Not actually they're really good but they're basic the most basic cookie ever. I don't know what to compare them to. They're not even like a snicker doodle or they're not chocolate chip or anything. They're kind of like a what. I can't even explain. They're kind of like a vanilla super basic like flower cookie. Like there's nothing exciting about them but they're shaped as the characters of tom and jerry and they're they have tom and jerry on the box. It's like all the kids want them and we wrote a store and lay. It was like look. I want that and i was in the static and i was like. Oh i used to have those okay. Let's get a box so we got boxes. She wanted some of those cookies. I put some in the bowl. We went outside. And i'm drinking my tea. And then like oh atomic jerry cookie. That would be really nice and my body. Went like yeah. That would be really nice. And i had a tom and jerry cookie and guess. What when. I was done with my tom and jerry cookie. I didn't want anymore. So i didn't have any more. I mean and for people who don't have a sugar addiction or have had like issues with which sugar or maybe they haven't had these kinds of. And i think all of us have different variations of this right where we have a lot of things going on with our bodies that keep us from feeling intuitively what we want and what we don't want it doesn't have to be more like we all have different layers of shit built up our systems but for me you know i would hear about those kinds of people who have a cookie and that's it like. I know that person like who. Who is that. What kind of person doesn't finish the box. What kind of person owns a pint of ice cream and doesn't finish the pint like i. i don't know like. I have always been like if it's there i'm going to eat and i'm gonna eat it all right and the now it's just it's it's different and i'm not trying to say this. I don't want to sound arrogant or belittle anyone. I'm trying to really really share that. What i thought was lack of willpower was not that at all. It was me being out of touch with my body because there were so many things in the way because my body was really sick. Because my body was really inflamed. Because i mean i still for sure have an unbelievable amount of micro-toxins in my body and condado in my gut and all these things. I'm trying to heal. But i'm really certain that i've detox enough for me to be able to go. Oh well hi there you are like. That's the feeling is kind of like. I'm feeling myself for the first time in years and that feeling of that entity inside that makes decisions that i don't want that overdose things that each things and ingest things and engages in things that i actually don't want that don't serve me in any way. It's like that that being. I don't know if it's out of my system or if it's just in the back seat now as i'm still detoxing and i will be detoxing for the rest of this year but that feeling inside of. Wow that's what i need. Oh i need to go for a swim right now. Yes i can give myself dot or you know. I need vegan tacos and net flicks like yeah. I needed that. you know. it's it's not about the what's like i'm really getting to that too. It's like i can have. Ooh i need like. I need a gin tonic with my friend like an laugh all night like i did that a couple of days ago like it's not about the what that the alcohol is horrible that the sugar is horrible. That everything is bad and don't eat this. Eat that it's not about that. It's about feeling in tune with our system so that we can actually know when to give it. What when to stop when to start when to keep going went to take a break went to go to bed. You know. And i had over the past few years completely lost sight of the hut and at the same time you know i had all these. I mean still have all these practices that kept me in tune enough that i could keep going right. I mean if it wasn't for all the meditation yoga. I really don't know where i would be. But it was also the feeling of it took so much of it for me to even feel like myself at all. You know because. I i don't know if i have been and that feeling you know that i really got to have today of oh i don't want the coffee occasional. Have the coffee nobile. You know and. I got to see that conversation sight of myself. And oh i want to. Tom and jerry cookie which is like full of shit right. It's not like an organic healthy cookie. It's like shit sugar and flour. And whatever and yeah. That's not a big deal. No shame guilt no like oh you're on a detox. No it's my system wanted that and then that's it and his good you know and i am so interested or so intrigued to get to know the real me a little bit better with the way my life has been in the past few months i have to say i am a professional now when it comes to cleaning not only did i clean my entire house. Hold of my belongings before. I left aruba. I just a huge spring cleaning of my little cabin in the woods here in sweden and i actually enjoyed it.

That's grove dot co slash yoga girl. Something that's really dawning on me. is you know. We're all kind of running in circles to to find ourselves right and ourselves our our heart. Our soul are being. We were all in this meat suit. We're all in this body. Everything happens from the level of this body. No matter how much we meditate or how much we create enlightenment or no matter how much we debate things or how much we grow or read or lert. Or hawaii's we are or how much we love and you know how much compassion we have much. Forgive how grateful we are all of that work. All the healing. It happens in the body right. We experience everything in this life from that place of the body so if we have a bunch of shit in the way right say a lifetime of toxins and i really am starting to think that for a lot of people this this is it for. I it's kind of like i touch on this conversation or when. I'm contemplating things and i get goose. Bumpy in terms of what's in the way of for a lot of us having a lifetime of shitty foods and not saying this for you to shame yourself or something from talking like we were all conditioned in a certain way from right. It's not our fault. What our parents fed us when we were little. We get accustomed to eating. And that's what we're gonna eat great and then we might come across a bunch of different things that inspire us wanna live differently right to want to be healthier. Twenty two bunch of superfoods one feel healthy and look healthy and all this stuff but that is going to be an uphill climb every moment of the day if your body is riddled with shit at can't get rid of if your body is inflamed if your body's sick or on the path toward illness if your body is toxic right and i'm thinking about every food had in my life that was filled with glyphosate that was filled with every vegetable every piece of lettuce every fruit like everything i've had that was literally sprayed with pesticides before it was put on my plate and i didn't think that was a big deal you know and i really think i really think it is a big deal and i'm i'm also tentative to talk too much about this because it's also a privileged thing right. I mean tell someone who can't afford to buy to go to pass by the organic island the grocery store. You shouldn't eat non organic foods. It's bad for you all things. Like what am i gonna do about that for a lotta people. You can't do anything about that. We can do our best. And that's it and we can also become more aware of. How fucking unfair. This is that the system looks this way that the healthier foods are afforded by the wealthiest one percent of this world. Like it shouldn't be that way that basic foundational like put your hands in the in the earth and grow something and grow your own food and put them on your plate and basic like sunshine and rain. The fact that that. That's not something that we can do if we have money. Or if we have extra time or i mean like if you're working two jobs trying to feed your kids like there's no how are you going to start your vegetable garden and where you know some struggling with that. I'm struggling with really wanting to talk. About how how bad this is how serious this is while. Also being super sensitive to the fact that there are no options for a lot of people in this world but that part you know are the whole entire food industry of how much stuff is put in what they call food that we referred our entire lives. I am probably now detoxing additives and food coloring and stabilisers and fillers and flavorings and bullshit put in the food that i ate when i was a kid and i've been feeding laya a bunch of stuff that vegan vegan. It's fine but no you know born to staff that if you look at the ingredient list it's like oh there's thirty things on this list. I i know what half of them are. You know half of them sound like food but then there's this and then there's that and then there's this and i don't know what that is but you know it's vegan so you know it's better than better than better than that and you know it was completely impossible for me to have that awareness before i had that awareness you know now i really do my best to make different choices and i have to fight really hard for that and it takes longer time in the grocery store and after research more and have to be super selective making choices. No where if. They don't have it if i have something on the grocery list and at the store they don't have it organic. I don't buy you know changed. I changed what's for dinner. you know. We'll we'll eat something more boring or something more mundane or something. I didn't plan because yeah there was an organic cauliflower at stores over not having cauliflower curry tonight like we're not doing that you know. I never used to think that way. Because i've been conditioned my whole life to think that that it's not bad and you know the industries and the government and everyone wants what's best for me and i'm really starting to kind of scratch at the surface of will adopt. That's probably not true right. Especially if there's a financial profit leading in running and and leading the way in all those industries like really about health. It's not really about nutrition right and i think that if you have a body that is completely full and that's going to be all of us right majority of us we're gonna have stuff going on with our bodies there's a reason why so many people get cancers. There's a reason why so. Many people get diabetes. There's a reason why all the stuff that happens. It doesn't just happen because there's something we're doing wrong. It's the whole system that we're living in. That's what's wrong and when we have all those things going on in our bodies how on earth are we going to ever be in touch with our intuition to actually know what what what we want and what we don't you know the inflammation needs to feed itself so the inflammation in the body wants more of the bad things that keeps the inflammation going that keeps us feeling bad. That keeps us feeling like it's impossible to make a change right like getting up in the morning to work out or making healthier choices for for foods like it's so hard it's so hard i really like. I can feel that feeling sitting on the couch at home in aruba like we just ate dinner last finally asleep and i'm like i need like bring me ice cream. You know and like if we didn't have any i would go down. In like rummage through the pantry. Like what we have you know or here. We don't have that. We don't have that like could make something and i would. I would frigging nine pm at night after dinner instead of just relaxing on the couch or taking my ass to bed. Which is what i should be doing. I would bake at nine pm. Something you know because i also would feel better. I always had this feeling like you know it and still to this day. I one hundred percent believe that. Always like if you're baking something from scratch you know what's in that thing whereas if it's store bought in a i didn't have the luxury of buying store bought stuff because i'm vegan and there's almost no vegan food over there and then that process of actually baking. You know being creative you know. It's it's also meditative. It's like this. It's it's almost like. I got to infuse something healing in the thing. That was bad for me that i needed every day right so i would like make a chocolate cake nine. Pm and eat that at eleven and wonder. Why couldn't i fall asleep. I try so hard to go to bed. And i'm up till one or i don't know why like me because you ate like three pieces of chocolate cake. Lemon you know come on all of that. It becomes impossible and the thing that we need to really invite in the sense. Because we all have stuff going on with our bodies whether it's a low grade inflammation or you know like you you have to sit with your own history of stuff right and feel into that for yourself and maybe you feel like you have no issues at all and life is awesome. Then if i if this gloomy podcast that didn't resonate with you but for me this has been a really big deal and the thing that's the most important is that we bring some compassion into this whole situation and that's what i really got to experience. Today's that feeling of wow. I tried my hardest. I could not have tried any harder to be to be really healthy to take good care of myself. I tried so fucking hard. It was not that. I didn't have the willpower. It was not that. I wasn't disciplined enough that i was lazy or stupid or not good enough or just the fucking mold and now that i'm touch with something that feels like intuition again right can feel my body. It's like i'm starting to remember. I'm starting to remember what it feels like go. i'm tired. i guess. I'll go to bed and have to lap saying that because for so many years i would have that feeling at night. I'm tired and fucking fight it. I'm tired okay. Well let let me like watch something. Let's do something. Let me pick up my phone. And scroll or you know. Let me like engage in some drama. Some some sort to keep my to keep the levels up right to keep that fighter flight mode that i'm existing in versus. Just i'm tired. Oh let's go to bed. You know that that's such a wild idea and it's been such a well that here for so long a half to laugh saying that and it's also almost like after cry because it's been so awful it really has been so awful and i think once we are once we begin to heal whatever it is. We are healing that physical level. We will realize that everything. We wanna heal in an emotional level from the level of trauma our all the places. We want to reach spiritually. And all of those things if we don't tend to the body none of the other stuff is going to matter right because we're not gonna have that felt sense of the experience of that growth from the body if we have all of that in the way if for sick for tired if we're sick and tired all of our attention gets sucked into being sick and tired. We can't get to the next level in life. It's impossible so we have to do this. Work from this physical level at the same time. And it's funny to me. It really is funny to me. That that i'm having all of these all of this healing happening now in in that one. I didn't even know i was sick. Right i really didn't even know there was something major going on with my body. I just thought i was tired. And my immune system was bad. You know. I didn't even know. But also if i look back and i can really think of the one greatest year of my life as one of those things where i i really look at. This is the best year of my life which was the year. I moved away from sweden. And i moved to costa rica for the very first time and that first year not just like travelling and visiting but the first year of living over there on my own and i used to think oh i was so courageous and brave and had so many new experiences and the people i met were amazing you know i was meditating. A shit it was my like my most hardcore meditation phase in my whole life and now i think about it. But what about your body like what was going on with your body then well. That was the year. I stopped eating processed foods. That was the year. I stopped eating meat and chicken and pork and eggs and dairy. I quit all of that. And it wasn't like i was eating some grass fed organic like lovely. Be from somewhere like i was eating the shittiest shit that whatever. It was put on my plate. That i had my entire life. You know. fried foods bullet whatever. It was like the standard american diet except it was swedish. That's what i ate my whole entire life. I quit all of that in one go. I had months of raw food. Which now you know. I think times raw food in our lives is great especially if we are getting. Something out of our assistant might just had organic foods. I was living in this place where everything was organic. The water was amazing. I started taking amazing superfoods. And i started like the things i did to shift. My physical health is it was night day right so no wonder. I felt that amazing. I mean probably. I kick started off a major detox that then too or yeah i guess a year later maybe two years later i ended up with an american boyfriend and started spending a ton of time in the states and found trader joe's and wholefoods and started eating all the vegan junk food. I mean i. I think i can kind of align that pretty well and then a couple years down the line i started eating dairy again and then you know it. Just they shifted. Things intercepted feeling like shit again. But it's almost like. I haven't equated the importance of the physical aspect. I always focused on the spiritual. Like i had so many amazing chaumont experiences and they set spent so much time and ceremony and so much meditation will. What about all the organic foods that you ate for an entire year. What about not having any bullshit come through your physical system. That really counts. You're really counts and the things. I'm feeling now. They feel like a like a memory of that. Almost you know physically. I mean for a little update like i still have stuff is not like. I'm all of us little lake winning some award for being the healthiest president in the world right. I'm still dealing with a ton of stuff. We got our mycotoxin report back. It's really bad. I'm going to do another one. I'm gonna wait until at least like six months after the first one to see if it's better but i have a lot of aches and pains in my body. I said i have a lot of have a lot of back pain. I feel tense in body. Almost like lactic acid. That's the feeling it feels like i. I'm working out all day. But i'm not doing anything like resting more than i've ever arrested in my life and every morning i wake up sore and i'm starting i think that's a. That's a detox symptom other than that. I mean i have a lot of energy throughout the day. I mean a lot a lot. I can breed really well if i'm not crying. I mean i'm not blowing my nose a million times a day. Coughing is completely gone away. I don't have headaches. I feel lighter. Yeah i have a little more of a pep in my step and the things that are bothering me now feel very like physical pain oriented which i have a feeling is something. That's passing laos eggs. Emma is so much better than what it was. I mean when we got here was really really bad. it's so much better just not everything is great imperfect but i can. I have this feeling. Like i'm getting there. Slowly slowly right and i would love to. I really would love to invite you to inquire on this moment. What standing in the way between you and your true intuition that true knowing of your body and what your body actually needs what your body actually wants that there is that place inside of you. Where your ego and your spirituality and your heart and your body were everything aligns where your personality wants the same thing as your soul where it's not like. Oh my heart wants this thing. But i have this craving over here. You know where everything is one. There is that place. What's standing in the way between you and that and really take a breath. They're just really hold some space for yourself and opening up into the possibility that there is nothing wrong with you that it's not you who are the problem right that it's this accumulation of fuck ary that that's taken place toward your body. You know that there been a lot of things and of course. I didn't even mention this in this episode but this is a whole other episode. I'll take another time but trauma causes. Physical ailments trauma lowers our immune system trauma sits in the body to sleep disease us. So there's so many layers to this not just everything we've been eating or not eating. Not just you know the potential toxins or mold or or environmental issues. you know. it's also that that past pain and the shock that might still be in your system you know living in that fighter flight that completely decides how we absorb you know how the decisions we make throughout her day comes from that place if we're really wounded and were we don't feel safe and okay so spend some time there enquiring into that. What standing in the way and then breathe kindness into that place. Really that you're doing the best you can that of right now. Today was the day you ate all the pint of ice cream and you baked all the chocolate cake and you ate all the shit and your body told you you retired and kept scrolling on social media and you didn't go to bed like if that day is today if that day is day love yourself in that the only thing i know is that hating ourselves for the decisions that we make everything more impossible to love yourself in that love yourself in which ever space. You are just the way you are. You know it's time for me to go to bed. Speaking of what our bodies are telling us it's am here now. And i sat down to share that. I'm grateful because i really really really really really really really am. I'm grateful i'm grateful. And so grateful and hopeful too. I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. Hopefully the future brings us a home somewhere. You know but i feel really hopeful. I love you truly. Do thank you for listening. Take good care of yourself. And i'll see you next week.
