"Of the children that were in goonies nineteen eighty five Now there's been a controversy. The film is said to be blunted. Rip Off of the more well known Own Kid horror adventure. which about kid horror of after the goonies ninety days what it really isn't there's no I don't see them? And then lastly Liam Niessen was considered for the role Dracula a role he would later go on to play in. And the Mel Brooks Film Dracula dead and loving it. So that's all I have this one now. This one is There is a bad good news. Here budget was twelve million. It only made three million eight hundred thousand dollars lost but it's one of those cult things because I see it every time you know. Halloween comes around this time of year. This movies on and People Watch it. Yeah and the the one good thing if if they can still sell. DVD's a long time after that was made when you're in a seasonal thing there's only so many seasonal ones like the Christmas story although they a lot of regenerate but the classic Christmas ones. You've seen one hundred times. You watch him every year he don't care it's just part of what you do you and it's Kinda that Thanksgiving or Halloween. You would look around and say what can we watch this consistent with the holiday and you don't see it until next next year but you do it. Then you have more family members in and GRANDPA's starts getting into it with the grandkids and pretty soon. It's everybody watches it. I grew up. I didn't grow up up but it had a niece. That when we when we visit we had to watch the grinch who stole Christmas which I liked anyway but that became a traditional thing whenever we had gift exchange before we did the gift exchange. We'd watch a couple of either those shorts or a particular movie like the Santa Claus or something like that so that became aim their family tradition. So yeah that's I mean if take a look at that one though it sounds kind of interesting. Yeah I mean you know you'd think all you got at these Dracula Frankenstein with metal that stuff. They're not campy so it's not a campy movie the comedy in it but I would Actually recommend so well again. Here's another you could call this sci fi but this falls under that because there's an influence here from outer space but the theme because this film was made in one thousand nine hundred fifty six. Yeah we're going back aways the overtone here is because does the Cold War was going on a lot of suspicion about mind control or being controlled Overrun and so on. And this film directed directed by Don Siegel and starring Kevin McCarthy Dana winner and a host of other character actors. Who you'll be quite familiar with if you watch the film again? It's black and white but this thing when I first saw it as a kid made a big impression I love to watch it. It's still scary. It's still something into a source of conversation. I'm talking about invasion of the body snatchers. This is the original not the remake by Philip Kaufman in nineteen eighteen. Seventy eight which takes place. It's in color. That's in color and takes place in San Francisco now not near as scary not his Concerning and this works again because black and white makes this just so frantic anyway. The story is for not familiar. The mayor with Santa Mira California Miles Bennett Dr Miles bandits baffled when all of his patients come to him with the same complaint one of their loved one and seems to have been replaced by emotional imposter they have no emotion nothing startled they. Don't care about anything. And despite others just denials and dismissing denials. He and his former girlfriend played by Dana. Wynter and his friend Jack Play by a Gab. Name of King Donovan. Soon discovered that the patient suspicions are true and and alien species of human duplicates grown from plant like pods is taking over the small town and the great fear. Is You have to stay awake because then they become horrified that this isn't a random thing. Those people that were taken over are actually raising seizing. These seedpods in field and distributing around so when they go to sleep they place one near under your bed you become one of them Who when you when you think about the films that have followed like the Stepford wives and some of these things this set the tone? And he's he he of course becomes aware of this is trying to get the authorities to believe him. Well the only he has to get out of town but they're trying to get him and he and his girlfriend are trying to escape but you're getting hired. Can they stay awake long enough to get out. It's a chilling thing and when they see what's happening they see these replicans people the look like them. That are coming out of these pod odd. It scared this will give you nightmares. Eighty eight it still resonates with me. I remembered I can see the scenes and I I watched it several years apart from the first time and whenever I see it or able to catch it on late show it is still a scary film. The reason that Don Siegel if that name rings any bells became a pretty good director some significant films in the one. That's most significant. As I told you couple of episodes ago I'd read. The biography was reading a biography of by Mark Elliott of of Clint Eastwood Don Siegel Legal Directed Dirty Harry and one of the other subsequent sudden impact one of the other ones. But it's Don Siegel's direction style while that influenced Clint Eastwood the most less dialogue more action shooting not long takes although Segal took more takes than clint clinched. One of those guys that they can be explained. I see it as good enough God. Let's move on. I'm playing golf at two o'clock get out of here that type of thing and if you watch Clint Eastwood Movies he actually knows what he's doing because if he does it that way he gets it he gets the actors he has respect the actors. It didn't WanNa waste their time or their performance. But anyway that's a little sidebar. There is he's credited by Eastwood is having significant impact on his film career. There it is very much of the body. snatchers nineteen fifty six. So my next and last movie that I have is is one of those movies we do watch. Every year it is called Hocus pocus. Eighteen ninety three Bette midler Bette. Midler Bette Midler Sarah Jessica Parker Caffeine. Jimmy this is directed by Kenny Tak- who any kids that are listening. No he directed the high school musical movies. And the Cheetah girls who basically the Disney a lot of the Disney movies that had the songs and Dancing and all right just so so bette midler sir. Just Parker Caffeine. Jimmy Play Winfred. Sarah era and Mary Sanderson's three hundred years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft returning to life. Thanks to a combination of a spell broken before their demise and the exit dental actions of Max. The new kid in town the sisters I have a one night to secure their continuing existence. So this is this is a pretty funny one. No this is actually you bet. Midler has said that this is her favorite role that she's ever played there had been reeler's there had been rumors of maybe second one. I don't know if they've completely well. They may come back currently at Disneyworld on certain nights they have what they call Mickey's not so scary. Halloween party which I have attended recently and one of their big stage shows at the end of the night. It's right in front of the castle. There's a stage and it has the Hocus pocus. It has these three sisters and people love it so so you know the demand and all that kind of stuff they actually make a second one. I'm not one hundred percent sure So there's a lot of cool scenes in this. She raises the guy from the dead. So there's a Zombie that's chasing number then ends up turning into a friend. There's the trick or treat that scene where the the three which is come in go on the street and the kids are running back and forth in their costumes and I like world. What's going on and they realize it's it's kids? Mary Sanderson has this Max. You can smell kids when they're coming smell so it's pretty funny. A couple of the Trivia. I have the role of Max Dennison. WHO's the main character in the film that was originally offered to Leonardo the Capri April back when he was young when he turned it down to appear in? What's eating Gilbert grape? which turned out to be a pretty good decision? Actually they lost money so I don't know critically was good for his career critical reviews on it and Jennifer Lopez allegedly addition for the role. That Sarah Jessica Parker plays stuff. That was interesting There's a lot of lines in the movie that actually are similar to lines. That bette Midler had done in in movies but one one thing I thought was really in the film. There's Mary he says to. To Builders Character Winfred Thou art divine and Bette Midler is known for her nickname. The divine with 'em I am so there's a lot of call outs for that Also seen where Gary Marshall and Penny Marshall are they're playing husband and wife life during the trick or treat because Garry Marshall's dressed up as Satan so they come to the house and you know the trick or treating or whatnot and they think it's the real devil invites hand and they're like oh master all this kind of stuff but I mean he's just handing out candies just normal guy that is that is all I have. The budget for this film was twenty eight million and it grows to thirty nine million dollars so the little bit of money but again it's kind of the other one it's like a like a classic you watch every year right so right and there's a great films to have around. I mean I like I like Bette midler couple of his films she made. I really like the wives club. Particularly I I thought he was terrific and that one or Wind beneath my wings. Well I'M GONNA close my third one is actually too do. But I'm putting them together because they're of the same. I said earlier my little introduction that some there are some films where you come face to face with evil incarnate if you will and we did a show on bad film adaptations and both of these movies which which were fairly successful if fact the first one says it's I was gonNA talk about says. It's the ninth grossing film of All Time in Canada the US. I don't know when that was said but they took one hundred ten million dollars when it came out. This movie came out in seventy three but both of these films are based on novels. I've read both the novels. You WanNA scary. Keep the lights on if you read any of these. Because it's GonNa scare the heck out of you and both of them were written. Written screenplays were written. The reason they work is that the author of the novel wrote the screenplay so it translates. Well they're well cast to with with top talent but the fact that the screenplay parallels the book so when you read the book and it's all the movie it's chilling in either instance that I do that more often. You know sometimes the office not alive but yeah that's true at or sometimes he heaves the stickler for staying with the book and a director. said it can't translate that way we gotta short handed sort of you. Don't want it then get. What's the old creative? Differences is what they say. It's always creative differences. So that's sometimes it didn't happen in this case however the second film I'm talking about. They made some sequels and he did not write those does he only wrote one book but the first one I'm talking about is the exorcist. which made a star out of Ellen Burstyn and it's a terrific film if you you haven't seen it? It's a terrific book. As I was telling Eddie I I was. I was three quarters through the book when a group of when it opened went to the I hadn't finished the book and we went to the movie and I knew what was happening and it would. It was exactly the book and I envisioned something. Sometimes you don't vision things the same way it comes on the screen. I was pretty much in lockstep with what was happening on the screen for obvious reasons now because the same guy wrote it and I didn't know how it ended though they hadn't finished a book so I'm sitting there with everybody else. What in the heck is GonNa Happen here and if you don't know the story it's one of the most profitable label horror movies ever made and it's a tale of exercises them so there's a religious overtone here we're talking the devil? You learn about the devil. Well here we go taking taking a taking form. Someone Young Reagan. That's Linda Blair. This made her a star too. She starts acting odd levitating speaking in cantons in a worried mother whose an actress who is in Washington. DC Georgetown University. I believe it is. They have Catholic priests and while while she's on the movie seen her daughter's having all this stuff going on medical help but they can't find anything wrong whether so they bring in a local young priest first. He thinks she may be seized by the devil. He makes request to perform an exorcism. And the Church sends an expert the exorcist derives and as Max Van Cedo the classic Swedish actor to help with the difficult job..

"Zayn goes and phoebe the little the little sister She's playing tea or something and he comes up and you know he's coming and then the scene goes to something else and then they're like guys guys like well. I want come see my new friend and it was Frankenstein holding her holding her finger. I and that is taken from the movie. which was redone in young Frankenstein? All seen that big creature is accepted by a young child now in the original. I think he throws her in the water. If I recall it doesn't then well new rich but that whole thing about she doesn't doesn't seem as a bad guy and I mean this movie. He actually isn't She teaches them how to talk. Bogus stuff like that. uh-huh and zoom up to date on more modern vernacular and he. He plays a big part of the end on what happens at the end. Couple of funny parts. The guy comes comes into the police station and says put me the cage. Put me the credit mature into a wall but of course a little while later. He's he's in the back of a van and then he turns into the wolf and he kills people. The mummy is one scene where he jumps up on the truck. The kids are trying to get away and the the one the middle school guy had bone marrow and he took a part of the mummies strap from the money and then shot the tree then all of a sudden around then all of a sudden mummies so there's stuff like that and one of the famous lines that sticks with me that I knew even before watches again. Is there in there in the House and the wolf names there and and Horace who is nicknamed Fat Kid They tell him kick him kick him or accounts. So he he kicks the Wolfman and then he goes Wolfman has Nord's so it's a the quote that I remember when a couple Trivia points. Mary Ellen trainor. She is the mother of the lead of the brother and sister. That are in this out. She was also the mother of the lead siblings of the children that were in goonies nineteen eighty five Now there's been a controversy. The film is said to be blunted.

"In just a little bit in the meantime we want to get to Matthew in Campbell he wants to weigh in on this governor Newsom's decision to sign this bill making athletes profit off their ability in college to his cell jerseys and stuff like that Matthew understand you got some street cred miss this subject right. well I have three daughters that can be completed diligently to amend division one and the. I don't necessarily agree with gallon a lot of stuff baby but on this is absolutely right that colleges the first call then double and double eight assumption that there's a level playing field is laughable I mean what are the smoky secondly the pac twelve networks if you're gonna help them possibly put schools are profiting hugely off the stock lead and they get almost update my kids. basically couldn't skinny or do almost anything in the offseason judge that they got injured outside of the sport their scholarship could be yeah second thing is is that while they're competing and stuff they say twenty hours of a week your maximum. absolutely not war yeah absolutely not that's that's ridiculous. yeah and so it's it's and they they work really really hard at it but absolutely so if your swimmer why can't you model because if your cheerleader you can have your computer science student you can add but the athletes they care so yeah I don't like professional. the kids are being taken advantage of and that's college and universities are taking that to the bank and I do not believe it's gonna hurt women's athletics at all title nine is still in the back and it needs to continue to be followed so I'm gonna shut up and hang up on myself love you got read you're my favorite substitute for Brian well I appreciate that Matthew here real quick before you go there are some that argue that how he did hang up on himself yeah he he did hang up is a he he does a good caller knew what to do there and also gave me a compliment which I. love that to you know to for their there there are some people that say they they're in their their salary their payments they're getting paid by getting a college degree. but he's rights it's real tough for these athletes now especially the way things have changed compared to when I was in school you can have a summer job and whatnot will for me again I was in this as non scholarship athletes like rules didn't really apply to me but then it's very strict on what they can do he's right if you're injured in the off season doing something that you're not supposed to be doing you could lose your scholarship who would then again if you're injured while playing the sport. and let's say that injury takes you out you're never able to play football again they still going to pay your scholarship. they still gonna pay you big make sure your. they give you your their end of the deal they gotta make I've come up with their end of the bargain but see I have always thought that a stipend. would be better off for the athletes specially the ones from poor backgrounds a story I told earlier having the guys come out with this because they didn't have any money they were sitting in their dorm rooms on Friday night not doing anything we take him out come with us and we can basically pay their bill no big deal you know we we were lucky enough that we had had money I worked in the summer I worked during the school year for gosh sakes even while playing football and going to school and all that stuff the my grades might not a show that I was actually going to school let's just put it this way not validate was not the best student. you know what but Hey it's still got the degree I had fun I had a lot of fun back after. I don't either you know the story belong to a fraternity I played football for two years I got injured by the way this two years I play football were the only two years of my life for I wasn't involved in radio really yeah I started in high school in radio one year in college played football for two years then got back in radio after I got hurt but I also worked for Miller brewing company I was a campus representative which mail which meant I sold beer to fraternities what is way. but we also do there for under you to set up their fundraisers or what not but we had a great Greek system at the university of Illinois fraternities and sororities because of that we had all sorts of opportunities. to do fundraising events for these fraternities and sororities has all of them had charities that they represented because that we are so successful at it I became the top campus rap in the country for Miller brewing company and got a nice plaque in a dinner and you know these monetary awards from all that eventually actually got a job offer from Miller brewing company to go into marketing for them. I didn't take the advice of my dad and pardon me this one of my best piece of advice my father ever gave me is it my dad look quick quick background. and one time he was an actor in Hollywood this after World War two the Pasadena Playhouse he was stand up comedian did some radio early days of television acting fit a few movies things like that. never really took off because his. he when he was wearing his first wife her family decided that that job was not very honorable another words being an actor comedian all that's that was not a very honorable job so they got him involved in the liquor business. in my system Klay but throughout my dad's life but he still had a you know a hankering to be on stage and you could see it when he'd do his sales presentations he had to be a sales manager inventively vice president a company but whenever you talk he was always a showman very good in front of people and that's I think a lot of were Brian and I get this no fear of speaking in public we actually relish it where I know that's some people that's like the biggest fear in the world so getting back to that my dad sat me down because I was in radio and I got this job offer for Miller was a really good job I wasn't making squat radio in a small town Champaign Illinois but that's what you do you start out small then you've the work your way up and I was going to take this job with Miller and I told my dad he said let me give you some advice he said don't quit radio he said I think you're really good I think things are gonna happen for you and just that that job will always be there if you want it will always be able to find you a job in the private sector but stick with radio and he was so right because in less than a year actually got my first television job in Amarillo Texas and is still the greatest piece of advice dad said you know I I that's one of my biggest regrets that I got out of show business he said you know all the people that that is that I worked with the machine coca king Donovan were two of his really good friends they used to come over to our house and they were in Chicago doing theater MC coco was the ants on bewitched she was okay yeah that that's are you read were crazy red had very funny they said I was you know I acted with them he said and I was better than them he said so what who knows where I'd be today had I stuck with it but I was this thing he said stay with the radio he said you can use I think you're going to go places man was he Prashant he knew exactly that I know he had the same kind of talk with my brother one time but he was really really big supporter of us see if you're struggling as you know low level TV people in low level radio people think you just got me like the fact that his kids were on TV something he never got to do it is seven forty two the time right now Brad Sussman infer brother Brian talk radio five sixty KSFO. main how can you afford gas for that big S.

'cause i published a daily so every day hey there's like a this day in bruce springsteen history post and then there's a another essay that kind of goes either into a one of songs or cover or <hes> <hes> someone else doing a cover of one of his songs or a concert report and it kind of just started as like a way for me to basically have an outlet to stop morning my family and and with constantly talking about springsteen <hes> and it kinda just grew from there i think i think you and i spoke the first time i think i was doing it for a couple of weeks at the time. It was really really early yeah. You know what <hes> what's interesting. Ken is. I'm always <hes> people think. Insurance agents prospect allot no no no when you're doing a springsteen podcast where you're doing nothing but guests sir. You tend to do a lot of cold calling and you're like you know sending out requests like hey hey. I'm always looking for guests. If someone puts out an interesting blog of that mentioned springsteen i email them and <hes> it's not not majority but there is at least a healthy percentage that will say i'd love to be on the podcast jesse. If if nothing else because my family i husband why kids whatever filling the blake are tired of me. Talking bruce springsteen us us somebody i can talk to who like understands again this conversation absolutely and you know so and <hes> so i always get a kick out of that because it's true because i have now reached the point with linda <hes> i'll go you want to hear something interesting and no. It's got nothing to do with bruce springsteen. Yes i have that exact conversation with my wife. I'll be like hey you wanna hear something. Cool and beth like is it. Bruce related sometimes like okay yeah. It's like no no and virtual tokens. I get like i think maybe three week. I get to use it or actually bruce related humor. It remained actually listened but that's i am. There was something recently that was only minorly about bruce. Springsteen and lynda actually found it pretty interesting. I don't remember what it was. <hes> you know i think she's going to go see blinded by the light with me <hes> yeah and so she she and she is is ready for a show. You know she is saying okay. You know i've been since two thousand twelve. I think i'm ready when he tours again to go see him. I don't think i want to see him. You know fifteen times the way you would like to but i'd like to go to one so yes we people with mixed marriages have have that you know that joy that we kind of experience with yeah okay so you're like. Hey i've. I've got to talk to someone i have. This need to share springsteen trivia so you decided to start a blog yeah so just trying to blog and <hes>. I don't think i said out originally <hes> to make it a daily thing. I think i just realized that after a couple of weeks that it was daily <hes> <hes> i decided to keep it going for as long as i could not sure how long that would be <hes> but <hes> but it's still going yeah and now we like. I was talking to my son chris about it. I said <hes> you know. Part of the advantage is once. You've gone through a year. You are not looking at an empty page every every day. You're like okay. Let's pull it up. We've already discussed you know july july eighth over the years so what it happened interesting last year and do i need to add anything <hes> yeah well that part's easy like the kingdom of days that the day in history he stuff is is easier to maintain although it's like playing whack a mole now with <hes> with youtube because it's all sorts of videos that just get pulled down and <music> get replaced so there's a lot of that but <hes> so that part isn't so much the challenge the harder part is just picking a song long every day and then find something to say about it that isn't you know same so compare. It's already said yeah ken so share with me. <hes> the listeners just in case they haven't been going the different <hes> themes of the of the <hes> you know blog you king donovan days. Which is the team you do yeah. There's <hes> there's a roll the dice series which and to be honest. I think they're all roll the dice now because basically gli have like every song that bruce's ever recorded covered written but not recorded <hes> contributed to other people. It's all in one big database and then i just just just just turn it off through the google. Randomize her her every day. Just picks a song and that's what i have to write about like. I never know what it's going to be. Oh pops up you let it pick it and then you go okay now. Gone yeah yeah i well sorta sorta like started out that way hey so so so the question right so <hes> south the context for its roll the dice which is like bruce's own songs that he wrote and recorded and and then there's covering me which is songs well. There's there's sort of two branches covering their songs that he's covered of other people and then there's also are the artists covering his his songs. There's meeting across the river. Which is him doing a collaboration with another artist and then there's swear the band was which is just my own. Well started as my own personal reminiscence of a concert than lately. It's been other folks kind of contributing there which has in cool but <hes> but yeah all it goes through a <hes> a randomized and then it i i i at any given time i have a month of posts planned out or mapped out and i do i will admit that i do move some things around on the board within that month so that i don't have like three like of his own songs in a row that would just like destroy me to have to write like three leave those essays in a row they day or i don't want three covers in a row so so you can move around a little bit but i never know what's on the horizon kind of until sunday comes around and i just add another week to the q. I will tell you my admiration russian for you has always been high but it increased. When i you know this spring i did the forty days springsteen in where you know i yeah i you know i for those who've not probably no one but hey every episode could be the someone's new episode so decided during the there's often bible versus or bible studies you do during linton and <hes> <hes> i said you know how interesting but it'd be to have a different springsteen lyric for every day of lint and so i i said forget as a springsteen not realizing that it's actually lent is like forty eight days because you don't count sunday's technically in the forty forty days and so as i sit a couple people yes as charlie. The dog wants to join us <hes> <hes> forty days longtime and to come up with a verse that you can write something significant significant about <hes> can be a challenge and not repeat yourself and so luckily a lot of people jumped in a. and helped me share episodes you know. They said hey let me do one. Do one and it was so well received that i've done you know my springsteen brings the thought of the day. I only do it once a week. I'm not as dedicated as you are. <hes> where you know i do one week and and it's a struggle sometimes like okay what lyric i wanna talk about him. What can i say unique about it. <hes> so i you know in your write. Up of songs is <hes>. You never phone it in your always significant. You always have some interesting discussion russian so i i really i admire how you stretching your creative muscles and kind of doing this. Thanks it is. It's hard hard. 'cause it's <hes> sometimes i find. I mean i i do sort of have a couple of kind of default frameworks for some of them <hes> but <hes> i try to avoid using them like i try to come up with a different angle or or something i tried to zero in on something about assigned <hes> and sometimes it's the lyrics and sometimes the music or sometimes. It's the back story or sometimes it's. I don't know some idiosyncrasy of it but it's <hes> <hes> just to keep ah interesting for me if for no one else <hes> but it's yeah it's it's <hes> you know if you if you notice the the role of the dice those tend tend to be the the longer and more thought essays and they're they're spaced out pretty well. The tends to be no more than two of those a week just got. I just can't i just can't you know keep take job anyway yeah exactly and <hes> because like i have the same thing i by nature <hes> amer emma optimists than i read a i read into a lot of bruce's lyrics about struggling to overcome and building adding better days one of my favorite songs so there's a lot of times i can look for those lyrics to do that. So i try to change things up. <hes> i was especially happy as we're recording this. <hes> the song for the day was <hes> bruce covering the one one time <hes> when i grow up to be a man from the boys and <hes> i had stumbled on to that a couple of years ago oh i don't know how i did it and it might have been when bruce appeared with brian back in jersey a couple of years ago and i've i have done a search and i found that and i was like you know considering. It's just someone recording in the audience. It's not a bad sale and he did a really good version of that song yeah. I like that one a lot funny. It's <hes> once in a while. I find one. That doesn't writing about i'm going. I don't know if i've heard this particular performance before and i had <hes> but it was so long ago that i've forgotten all about it <hes> and and <hes> it was kinda cool to rediscover it again yeah and i thought your <hes> you added in context that this was <hes> tunnel of love. He had just been married. You know there's the line. Will i still love my wife for the rest of my life. <hes> you you know and you kind of mentioned is you know is he thinking about that. <hes> and when you figure out how how young brian wilson and mike love were when they wrote that song <hes> you know there is it's a really it's a really sweet song but it's also actually has a little bit depth.
