Caller: Watch Harvey's 'Our Lives Our Fortunes Our Sacred Honor'
"Every year I watch Paul Harvey on YouTube, our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor. He tells us what happened to the founders and the signers of the declaration in his own inimitable special way. And I would urge all listeners to listen to that if you have any reservations about what they did and not what happened after they signed. We know they signed, but what happened later to them. And the king was not happy. So as we do that, and as we look at that, and as we think of our history, Carl, how much longer are we going to sit around on our butts and do nothing? This is, we are face Carl with two enemies. Tyranny and wickedness. And if we don't realize that and get on our knees and start praying, do we need a national exorcism?

Fresh update on "king " discussed on ACG - The Best Gaming Podcast
"I know. Yeah, yeah. But I get it. Some people don't like the combat, so it may not work. In fact, if you're a fan of the turn based, you may actually not like this at all, but I think overall it worked for me, the combat was a bit clunky, not a huge fan of the battle shortcuts, system they had. Right. Lack of jump was a big problem. Or lack of jump, you know, there were things like this, the camera and stuff like that. But overall, I loved it. Let me spit on the face. Of all old fans. I didn't like Final Fantasy 7 originally. I thought it was actually pretty fucking terrible. I didn't like the summons. It took two fucking long. It was a boring game for a lot of parts of it. And yes, I get it that a lot of people are infatuated. The graphics back then, which is fine. They saw these cool graphics. Burning in the background. Whatever. Final Fantasy 7 remake, I think, paid dividends in them sort of identifying how to deliver the story of the old game and the characters and stuff like that. And they had issues, but I think, yeah, man, I don't know, I just didn't like the original. I think this one's good. I think there were issues with it for sure. Lack of jump was terrible. What a stupid. There's no jumping in laying. What the fuck is going on? It felt so you were like, dude, please. And you're trying to swing at this fucking birds and it was so fucking, it was so frustrating. But waiting for the summons in some of those old games was also frustrating. Yeah, I got a couple of minutes. The King Arthur so many in particular that was like in the original, you mean? Yeah. I just remember sitting there, one of my friends tried to tell me it was awesome. So I sat down to play it, and it was a lot of waiting, and then once it finally got there because you had waited so long, you were all. That's it. And then, you know, you built up and then now it's like antagonistic towards it. Where are we going to say Brian? So Final Fantasy 7 was the original was when I finally felt like a normal as a young guy because I was always into that. And all of a sudden, everybody was playing the game. I was playing. So it was like, I was like, 'cause I liked all the turn based, like prior to that. So final face 7 wasn't even a graphical thing. I was like, oh, I love Final Fantasy. I was already a fan. Final Fantasy helped me with reading and speaking and because I'm dyslexic. And so it gave me the motivation to continue on..
Author Christiana Hale on the Concept of 'Medieval Cosmology'
"And if I was walking back I'm talking to Christiana Hale, who hails different spelling from Idaho. She's in Idaho now. I am not an Idaho. I want to be very clear. The book that she has written and it is wonderful. It's called deeper heaven, a reader's guide to C. S. Lewis's ransom trilogy. So Christiana, C. S. Lewis wrote so much. Some people know him from the screwtape letters. Many people know the Narnia chronicles and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Very few people know that he wrote a an absolutely spectacular trilogy of novels for adults, often called the ransom trilogy. They are literarily magnificent and there's just, they're full of so much stuff, so much genius, so many levels. But one level, which is vital in which you write about in your book, which you clarify, is this thing called the medieval cosmology. So let's just break it down for the audience. The ancients believed, and the medieval world believed that the earth is at the center, now we now know that's not true, but it kind of doesn't matter. They believe the earth is at the center. And then they could see with the naked eye before telescopes, they could see the sun, the moon, and mercury, Mars, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter. That's it. Right? So those were the medieval planets. And when you talk about medieval cosmology, first, that's what you're talking about, correct? Yes, yes, correct. So the 7 planets of their cosmology. But beyond that, they saw the planet says having very distinct personalities too, which is something that's very foreign to us. We just look up and we see them and they're pretty in the night sky and they're bright. So give us an example of what we mean by that. So for example, Jupiter, I would argue they would see as one of the most important planets. And so in the system. So he is and I say he because it's very connected to the Roman God Jupiter after whom it's named. But they would see him as the king of the planets. So as Jupiter is the king of the Roman gods, and so connected with kingly Ness and all of the all of the qualities that are associated with what we think of a king being like you can see also they could see with the naked, well, not quite with the naked eye, but as rudimentary telescopes were developed, they could see the spot in Jupiter's side. So he's the wounded king, which then draws connections to Christ, obviously, on the cross, his side was pierced. And so they're comes into all of these, then theological connotations as well.

This Is the Clarence Thomas We DON'T Know
"Everybody to see the movie, Michael. I want everybody to read the bookmark. But share if you will a little of the klans Thomas that we don't know. The prior to the hearing, the amazing story of how he grew up, his family, the less than conservative clarence Thomas in college, share a little bit of a history of that the pre famous clans Thomas. Well, as you know, he was born in pinpoint Georgia in 1948. And it's a gullah speaking area. So his English was not his first language. His father left before he could remember, so he was raised by his mother, who then took clarence Thomas and his brother to Savannah, where he suffered dire poverty, hungry, all the time, called in the winter, brought to school, and then left and then he'd walk out and wander the streets of Savannah until his mother brought him to her father, his grandfather to raise, and that justice Thomas life round. And hard work, his grandfather said, the damn vacation is over. Two boys thought, what vacation? And it was work all the time. They went to school. They went home and they worked on the Catholic school, right? That's right. He was Catholic or very unusual thing for black men in those days, and he sent them to a parochial school. Remember, it's the segregated south. It was all black, but run by these Irish nuns that continue to give them discipline hard work, a rigorous curriculum. And he thrived, and wanted to be a priest, which a lot of people do not know. And enrolled in the seminary. Only one of two or the only black seminaries. Right. He was integrating what were formerly all white seminaries. And he would have been one of the first black priests in Savannah. But it was the late 60s, and he experienced racism there. And as you reached a peak, perhaps when he was watching Martin Luther when Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and one of the seminary and says, I hope that SOB dies. And then something snapped. Something snapped, and he became a black radical, as you say, less than less than a conservative. He said, the more radical the better, describes themselves as an angry black man. And he went to holy cross where he got a full scholarship. His grandfather kicked him out of the house when he lost his vocation. And he went through this radical period. And we

The Seed and Soil Argument With Historian Bill Federer
"1700s and all of a sudden Britain is in a little bit of trouble and they start to have to tax the colonies, expand more on the seed and soil argument that led us to the culmination of the 1770s. It's interesting so the British, the king of England, went on to become the most powerful king on Planet Earth. If he was a globalist, he was a one world government guy. And so in the middle 1700s, they controlled Bengal and Bengal India, Bengal, India, and they basically took over and said, okay, all this, you know, subsistence farming and stuff you've been doing working to switch it up. We know how to do this. And they change, they change their economy so much that there was a drought and it turned into a famine and 10 million people died in Bengal in the middle to late 1700s. And so the British East India Company has gone bankrupt and so they go to the king say, hey, we want to tax Britain and the people in Britain said no way. And so the king says, okay, well, you can tax the colonies. And it started to escalate and the king wanted to take away our ability to print our own money, take away our ability to appoint judges. So all the judges were appointed by the king and but he didn't realize that, by the way, king George the third went insane. He had porphyria, a blue blood disease. You know, you intermarry the preserve the royal bloodline. Uncle daddy. But anyway, so the king of England was a globalist and America's founders decided they didn't like this global as king telling us what to do. So they broke away and flipped it and made the people the king. So the word citizen is Greek, it means co king, co ruler, co sovereign. So kings have subjects who are subjected to their will, Republicans and democracies have citizens. And so if you're a citizen of America, you are a co ruler, you're a
A Brief History of the English-American Experiment With Bill Federer
"Being the Americans, we kind of go into the private property direction, right? Yeah, so England tried a 15 year American experiment called the English Commonwealth. So the King Charles the first got defeated and 16 40 or so and got his head chopped off. In the glorious revolution. This is prior to that, but that is a key revolution in 1688. But this was like 1649 to 1660. It's called the English Commonwealth. It was an American experiment of a Commonwealth of covenant. They had no king. Oliver Cromwell refused to take the title of the king, he called himself lord protector. He did an okay job. He dies, his son, Richard, can't keep it together. And so William Penn's dad, sales he's an admiral. Sales over to Europe puts Charles the second on the throne brings him back and re Institutes the monarchy. And in exchange he gets in a state in Ireland and then he's a famous admiral and then of course his son found Pennsylvania. But so they had an American experiment for 15 years, but they brought the king back. America, because of a 3000 mile ocean, because Europe was the chessboard in America was sort of an afterthought. I mean, we lost money. It wasn't like Spanish gold anywhere. It was a loser. And because of that, the king said, look, just don't cost me any money and stay out of my hair. And so for almost a century and a half, the Americans got to practice self government, like training wheels. And that's the dilemma. We go into these countries, we get rid of Saddam Hussein. We give them a constitution identical to ours almost. And then one election cycle they vote in Sharia law. And we scratch our heads thinking gee, why didn't our farmer government work? It's like duh, they have an Islamic soil that you planted the seed in, where an America you had a predominantly judeo Christian soil. The Berlin Wall comes down. Help them set up governments almost identical to ours. It gets taken over the bly that black market, the mafia, the organized crime, we scratch our heads, thinking, why didn't it turn out like America? Well, you planted the seed in an atheistic soil. They had 70 years of atheism, right? And so it worked in America. You have seed and soil or form of governments like a genetically engineered seed, but you plant seeds in soil and the soil is a predominantly judeo Christian populace. Right. So that's why it worked in
Why Was America Able to Self-Govern? Historian Bill Federer Explains
"But why America? Why was it all of a sudden we were able to bring the ideals of self government into practice because there was a struggle obviously against king George and our origins, if we stand the top history and I agree with you as respecting the individual, what caused that to manifest. Interesting goes back to the reformation that goes back to church, and the idea of a church government that's congregational in the model versus the hierarchal model. The hierarchical model in England the king was at the top and your relationship with God is through this structure of Archbishop of Canterbury and so forth. But in the Protestant puritan model, there's a group that's an ecclesia, a body, and the pastor's job is to get everybody to have their relationship with the lord and then coach them to become mature Christians and find their place in the body and plug in in this thing grows. And that was the situation in New England, not in Virginia, but in New
Charlie Welcomes One of the Foremost History Experts, Bill Federer
"With Bill Federer and rob McCoy, Bill, welcome back to the program. Hey, Charlie, great to be with you. Bill is the history Wiz. Yes, he is. I mean, rob, I've never met anyone like Bill. Prolific is one way to describe you. How many books is about 25? All history books. Yeah, try to learn lessons from history. People say history repeats itself really human nature repeats itself, and you observe the patterns. It's sort of like the government is collecting all the information on you and all the listeners from their cell phones and emails and web searches and they're taking all that data and running an algorithm on it to get predictive. And so if you study enough history, you see the patterns, you can be predictive. And so I tell people that history is not prophetic, but it is predictive. So what does history tell you about the moment we're in or tell us? The default setting for human nature is gangs, tribes, power wants to concentrate into the hands of one person. And you go back through history and you have the most common form of government's kings, nimrod federal Caesar Kaiser sultans are and you can plot it out. At some point it's going to max out on a global level. And you know, if Genghis Khan killed 30 million people, if he hadn't had died, he didn't have to keep killing. You know, Mao Zedong kills 80 million. If he hadn't had died. And so that spirit is still there and then but Jesus says wheat and tears grow together until the harvest. So you always have, you know, I always try to spiritualize, but you always have the spiritual descendants of Cain always trying to kill the spiritual descendants of Abel. You know, and the only thing that changes over time is military advancements allow the king to kill more people and technological advancements along the track more people. The stakes get higher, but it's that same fallen nature and at the same time, the stories we love best in the Bible are when things look hopeless and God raises up little nobodies with faith and courage and

"king " Discussed on King Tyravian Paranormal
"Hello, everybody, and welcome to king tura's paranormal. What we're going to talk about all kinds of things Supernatural, scary stories from Reddit and more tune in. Today's story is called paper street haunting. And this was posted on Reddit by Bern Schmidt. Whip out any further ado. Let's get started. When moving all of our things and during the day, really be wise and such an unsavory neighborhood, a bad neighborhood, Jacqueline cried snidely, at what she perceived to be her husband's intentionally a snarky eloquence. I hate it when you talk like that. Like what? I don't know. Greg snickered arrogantly. Not even you know what you meant by it. I know what I meant. You're above the rest of us. You're as blue collar as anyone else around here. She wasn't wrong. They both came from virtually the same place, miles apart, and yet an impossibly tiny puncture wound on a U.S. map, injected with the drug of mediocre complacency. Isn't that everyone he thought in silence? Can I never be something more? The break squealed as they pulled alongside the curb at four one four paper street. A day of fast moving waves of metallic silver clouds, a thin mess scraping the sparse tree tops and telephone poles and tickling droplets of chilly autumn rain. There was almost nothing alluring about it. It was, after all, started home, but it jutted from the soggy grass like an eyesore. Its presentation, the placement of the second floor windows, uneven pains by the weight dividing wood slats, rolling up in the sockets like the eyes of annoyed parents or were spilled milk. The front door carved into what appeared to be teeth and the stark absence of any bushes or shrubbery save for some unattended weed growth, chin whiskers, though worn despondently dull red bricks and white sills. The gutters piling with wet leaves smattering drippings of accumulated water down the side dancing and flipping to the ground naturally gracefully splashing into puddles on the drab rectangular concrete slabs, forming the walkway to the front and around back, soaking into the cracks.

Think of children's stephen king's officially gotten old enough to start thinking that way. He's seen generations. Grow and learn and be influenced by the world and they're both kind of about that in some interesting ways. The institute was released. You need to know this. After and written during a crisis in america where thousands and thousands of children from other countries were interred in low quality horrible prisons and concentration camps at the united states in mexican. Border like that deals with that topic. It's a much. It's a much more timely book for me than doctors sleep. Dr sleep is contemplative. The institute feels urgent..

That's going to be interesting to talk about. I like that. Our listeners can see the reason that we have to stop doing this in this episode. Like that it's like bothering my baby. I'm like it's for sure. So because her list listed super weird we don't have like a good number two full two sided bracket. We've got four books. They get pass first round books that were pretty much guaranteed to wipe the floor for us round one So our first level this bracket is like the the underdogs right. These are the ones that just based on preliminary whatever we did not like as much this season so they're all fighting their way in to heavy hitters club that brings us to round one multi-diverse mad. This is the dark tower series versus eleven. Twenty to sixty three competing to face off against by in revival. I love that wildcard. So let me immediately start. Wisdom notes here The supernatural elements and the unreality elements. Here are actually complementary in the stephen king verse on some of the rules are the same these two books and so what do you do with that. You have to start thinking about entertainment value. You have to start thinking about general like plot structure and like writing stuff and then you have to think about in the entire king system which is like more valuable to the group right definitely and now the other thing to consider here too is just raw enjoyment right for me. The dark tower series had some of our highest highs but also some of our lowest lows for the season and eleven twenty to sixty three was a book that we both enjoyed the first time..

"On hold on era haunt haunt hold on hold on home fuck shit. Fuck how jesus. Some of this has met author. Very sorry is mary findlay. Mary finlay This one i actually out now disagreed with. Excuse me i'm getting emotional about it. Disagreed with a lot of what is essay was arguing and you did not. And that's good actually. I think it's you want pieces in your collection that aren't going to be on controversial. You know you need you need things that are arguments in not just statements of fact because otherwise what you have is a collection of trivia. The thing that this collection is about is stephen king's escalating violence and violence against children in media. Dr sweep in particular being the apex of his comfortableness with depicting horrific acts against children Which is fine. That's not necessarily disagree. With what i did disagree with. Was there is an idea in this assay that this goes against something that he wrote and talked about in his essay guns which we talked about coddling first season in that essay. He talks about why he stopped allowing his novel rage to be printed because it was he felt contributing to school shootings Few school shooters had mentioned it as something that they identified with and so she writes about how his escalating violence kind of goes against that principle. But i think that it's more complicated than that. I don't really buy the idea that the depiction of violence is the issue in rage. And i think stephen king would agree with me. Here that rages a very specific narrative about school. Shootings were as dr sleep is not dark. Asleep is a narrative about entirely different thing. And there's really no evidence to suggest that dr sleep is inspiring people to become sadistic pedophile. Like there's no. I don't buy that So i this essay rubbed me the wrong way but i also someone who's resistant to the idea That violent media has a negative social impact in our culture right. And you and i've talked at length at length at. Yeah the more. I work with kids..

"Hits the ground unceremoniously I would have made a better true crime writer i think. Yeah but yeah so. I actually think that because of this tone success Our piece does not pale in comparison to the others. In this book i agree. I know it's going to sound like ego but it really does feel like an equal part of this collection. And i'm over the fucking moon about that. I cannot tell you how much That makes me feel good Yeah we put a lot of time and effort into it. And i hope that people will seek it out because i think it's a good s. I think it kinda rule if you like how we talk about people of color and women of color and how they are sometimes exploited and literature than. You're going to like this because we do that a lot. Speaking of which the next in this collection is called. Cujo the black man and the story of patty hearst by sarah nelson so something that i noticed about this collection of mentioned a few times. There's a lot of license to get into very specific aspect of each film to ours was really focused on the process of adapting. This essay was way into stephen king's interests and obsessions while writing. Cujo and i think it's really really cool and while done I don't have a great quote further. That but the confluence of stephen king interviews. Really bring the argument together. Because she's able to kind of put these out there things into the world and say and then here's stephen king talking about it and i really love that method. I liked that method to There's a couple of cool conclusions and links in this essay. Which just gives to show that you can talk about. Stephen king's work for thousands of people for hours and hours and hours. And there's gonna be stuff that you never would have considered the The one that stuck out for me was lincoln. Cujo and randall. Flagg thematically Which i'm not going to explain here because it took a bit of a of red wine on board to get there but it worked. And i was like hell fucking yes. That's amazing and of course i had heard the bambi to cujo line before about how violence against animals acts in these books. But what i hadn't heard is about this team of threatened masculinity in cujo idea that we have cheating wife right and cujo is like the weird masculine revenge on the cheating. Wife care like i It's funny how we talk a lot about. We have a whole section about animals in our show sometimes and this book. This essay comes right out swinging. It explains in case you haven't heard animal. Deaths hit so hard because peop- polls relationship people psychological relationship to animals acknowledges that we are also animals and then that brings up the sense of mortality. That is sometimes art equal to the deaths of human characters and having that just spelled right.

Wow i'm on lake. So i take the wikipedia. It was sparse. I checked the wikki. It was sparser. Yup it was worse. Oh my god you weren't kidding. Yeah it's because the vast majority of king fans are older and don't dude. Are you know which you know. I guess it's fair. I don't fucking do it either now. I'm on good. Reads trying to see if anyone mentioned. I'm ninety percent. Sure his name is bill. I'm the other thing before we just shoot ourselves. Further in the foot here is i. Actually the other day loves buttons. Omnia was that it also be. Yeah are you. Flew like helen. The principal character. Who you know in her story. You know the they intact. The story was her husband. He and she fled to a women's shelter. And it's this kind of slow realization. That ralph has at like oh. Helen is no longer going to be looking for men. And especially because there's that other character from the women's shelter. I can't remember her name either but there is some tricky bits in there were just like. Oh yeah. she's a lesbian and she's clearly like the man heating guy like that of noxious but it's just close enough you're sitting. You're the the thing that's hard about. Stephen king is that he doesn't he doesn't pull punches from his characters. If his character would think or say something problematic. Stephen king does not stop them from doing so as a writer which is tricky. Because then you you run into wall. Are you encouraging this behavior. Because it's coming from the protagonists etc etc. I also does a character in the dark tower. That is we need to gush about a bad guy random. So yes we we will talk about my fave and yours callahan. But i wanna talk real briefly about what i think is ultimately my king representation which is like a random tie. Heen like just dude who is killed in thirteen. Yeah is like just like a dude. He basically in work you know. He's kind of a different species doesn't he needs a marie. So here's a furry. I'm i'm talking about in absolute minute character. I don't think he has a name.

"Is a dividing tactic. So let's talk about queer history in relationship to stephen king. I do wanna like make sure that we keep bringing it back to king yes. Stephen king has been writing long enough that the culture around queasiness has shifted dramatically like really really significantly over time and you can see it shakeout in his writing. Yeah starting with kerry kerry is an interesting book to me. Because i think there's a really you could read kerry white as queer varies oi. You could one hundred percent. A generous reader kerry can take some of the body. You focus in the writing. That king has that people often read as horny grossman thinking about naked high scores which is unfortunately not a read out of the realm of possibility gauge in the state of things. Yeah but carries obsession with her body and lack of understanding of what it does and interest in other young women's bodies reads as really really queer to those of us who were not thinking of cleaners has an option when we grew up. So i remember starting sports in high school and thinking that i just had an academic interest in other men. Would i would tell my friends like man like. Did you see that guys. But and they'd be like. I wasn't looking at his but and i was like. Yeah me neither i wouldn't. That's not where. I was looking at all Man you tie that to the religious extremism that tortures her and her outsider status and already aah kerry we get fertile fertile ground for a queer. Read mcqueen queer interest in stephen king. Yeah it ain't smooth sailing though. It is not I'm going to be very honest. Even my cat has been door driving. You seen so i'm running. I've been listening i've been. I've been running around the laser pointer to get her to. That's and so. I haven't had the chance to percolate my own thought. That's fine i again. I'm coming at this from more of a gender identity angle. Sure i've mentioned this to you. Before is that. I read fire-starter when i was probably a little bit young to read fire starter. Get rid of when. I was like ten or eleven. The i wasn't even thinking about trying to shit yet. Like like i was who. I was in my tiny little child body and i think i mentioned this. It's really not like a significant chunk of the book but it's the part like stuck out to me because at that time. Are you definitely main. Queer thing i had seen. My young huge was kinky boots. Amazing referring to for we continue forward. Oh i'm so sorry. So there's a scene in firestarter with one of the characters again like my memory of the is actually quite sparse. I believe the detectives or police officer characters appreciate he dies he puts on his wife's clothes and then shoves his hand down a garbage. This oh that's right. Yes so there is a some sort of shadowy government authority figure who is psychically influenced to commit suicide by.

"I think one thing here right. I guess it's two things happening at once Hand it's like you've talked about several times on the show so far nantz episode but the show in general which is that you know. Evil in does itself right. Evil cannot maintain the what in a basic way right so even though he's put all this work into you know producing a child He that can be undone just as quickly right. And i i mean god. It's just a stephen king thing to have that produced by a woman nagging him too much. Thank a good god but on the other hand. Something that we didn't talk about earlier. Is that i think it's stu who says that. Most of the world's nerds are going to go to rainbow flag. And so they so he knows that that vegas believes that vegas is going to have electricity. They're gonna have like computational power i they're going to be able to get the military bases up and running again and all that is true. I mean students correct that all the nerds did go to rainbow flag. But so so. I think that what's being presented here. Right is that that. The thrust of rhino flags desire here is to recreate the world as it was You know the the potential rebirth of our new birth of An american myth in an innocent america comes only from the colorado free zone or whatever it is the boulder free zone can't ever come from rainbow flag. And so i think that that. I this is too thin to be the intent. But the practicality the reality of the novel is such that the big world that that everyone lived in before the plague was undone by the hubris ingred of the technocrats empower right corrupt politicians. Whatever randall flagg is undone by the exact same thing except for in place of the state you know in in place of the military industrial complex. There's just one dude..

"She's kind of carried by the winds of fate. And she has no position toward randall. Flagg at all yeah right. She's just period. yes she's just like. Oh it's just it's him right This totally weird devotion to just like the possibility of him even as i dunno anyway. That happens she is rendered catatonic by the experience because It's it's a a really gross. Stephen king sex scene that is also a rape and like is not human And we get implications about that and it just. She's out of the book essentially but she is pregnant. So the interesting thing about this whole thing too. Is that That that randall. Flagg his relationship to nadine is also. This whole thing is fucked up. I guess i'm saying right because we don't really have an understanding of like why he wants to have a child because this is failures right like this is the whole thing. Here's that both of these characters. Even though he's extremely powerful both of these characters are carried on the winds of fate and the wind fade. Are stephen king. Decided this needed to happen in so this is just an excuse. I think i mean. I really do think that this just runs into an excuse to talk about like. You're saying the inhumanity randall. Flagg literally he's something other than human being and also stephen king's a horror writer. This is not a horror book like even remotely even a little bit. And this is the one scene where i would say that. The kind of gross violent You know a oppressive like there's no room to breathe in the scene This is worth stephen. King is stretching his legs as far as all of that kind of horror. Writing is concerned So e yeah i It doesn't fit in the novel but it also doesn't fit in the novel in the way that nadine entire plot doesn't fit in the novel You cut all this out and it would not change the rest of the book at all like even a little bit well in that sort of to the to the sort of like thing that i was uh Angling.

"The superfluid had had a little bit of the shining. It's interesting it's a. It's a science fiction novel because the shininess is science fiction and it's also a psychosis or related to psychosis from kerry. It's one thing no one's talking about. Stephen king is a science fiction author You should be So she draws them alter nebraska and then of moves them. Forward in explicitly sees her Connection with like the christian god. Yeah and that's where this book can get really interesting especially in terms of the larger stephen king mythology. Because i think it's possible to get through this and realize that these characters are constantly this recognizing as the christian. God something else entirely. Yeah i mean. I think that's exactly how i read it and i always like when when i read it. You know as a as a kid or whatever. Yeah i think i realized that then and it could be that. Maybe i'd read a dark tower or something beforehand The the thing that that i will say that you had your All my student experience. I had a similar online stephen king experience but for specifically tower fans that. We'll talk about when we get to the gunslinger at some point but But yeah i mean i. What's interesting to me is that this gets brought into this. Very christian in kind of american centric framework of how mother abigail understands her experience. How everyone talks about randall. Flagg but. I don't think that this is a particularly you know christian god and christian devil deal nia like i that these are forces beyond that i think or other than that maybe not beyond that but other than that and as you're saying i think it ties into the broader stephen king Metaverse or whatever that we'll talk about as we learn more about it as we read these novels Is anything else you wanted to sort of point out about mother abigail. I mean you. You said in a preview of the shining episode right that she is essentially the the miami minstrel stereotype. Yeah i mean she's What's interesting is. I think there's less of that in the uncut novel Because there's less of her in general or i'm sorry in the cut novel. Yeah oh yeah the. But yeah i mean the uncut novel ads. What like five or six scenes with her Yeah like the. I remember getting a lot more about sort of her life and her experiences. And some stuff about that like i remember more. I remember more about her alma. Yeah that's not. Yeah there's a lot of that kind of stuff. And of i mean i would say that vast majority of like the stuff that was restored are things that are either sex violence or Just stephen king gross stuff. He's just interested in like bowel movements. But but here we Yeah at all to say yes right like she. She exists to present a homey a safe location for the recreation of society It's no mistake. I think that when people when they get boulder and they're hanging out in colorado every time a new group comes in because there's hundreds more than these characters right..

"Yes because this is what his mother says is that you you you quote sound black And his his mother is sort of opportunity for stephen king to show us all of leg. The your traditional nineteen seventies grimy new york problems right the neighborhoods are bad. People are breaking windows of like. There's a lot of people who don't speak english in the neighborhood. Now that sort of thing and his mom's just kind of been soldiering along and let it comes back to see her in her kind of rundown apartment. I mean it's like the first time. I think he's seen her in. Maybe like ten years or something She she kind of has she's like. Oh god larry like what sort of trouble are you in that. You've come back to me. But she takes him in the less and I mean basically what this what this does is that this sets up a kind of weird edible thing that larry is going to work out throughout the rest of the novel. And i don't mean edible in the sense. That like larry clearly wants to sleep with his mom but more like he is aware that to some extent he abandoned his mother and bring coming back at this point makes him feel very very bad But at the same time he can't really bring himself to lake. Be good son whatever that might mean. He doesn't know what he can do to make it right and of course all of that is cut short anyway because the super flu comes in His mom dies as well as just about everyone else in new york. And you know like plague-ridden new york some of the coolest shit in this book a hundred percent. And i i think the the stuff about leary and his mother too you know. I think you called. Wha what was it that you call the shining that that king called it a crossroads novel right so making a choice between you know my quote unquote a serious novelists story. Am i this kinda genre guy and stephen king. I think you know as as talking about earlier right. I think it's something that pays off for him. In having a at least gender diversity of readers is that he says no. I'm not. I'm not making a choice. I'm doing both you know he. He instead of taking a turn at the crossroads he lives there. And i think that's really happening here too with larry underwood because larry underwood is in. And i think the comparison to jack. Torrance's even think about that. When i was reading but larry underwood's in his own novel that is different from the novel that other people are in here right. Susan adventure novel. Fran is in this like bourgeois romance novel..

"I'm very franchised But but Yeah i don't. I i think he has. Since that token is like the logical project talking was involved in creating this unified mythology or this fictionalized mythology that that talks about the kind of or history of of england. And all that kind of stuff. I think he has a sense of that. But i don't think that He's thought about it much more than that The the other thing. I guess it's worth saying here at the top two is that this is i. I mean correct me if i'm wrong. This is the. But i believe this is the novel that like makes stephen king stephen king Like all of his other novels have been successful but this is a novel that each breaks him into the highest cheer. I don't know because none of the stuff that i have read has suggested that but i will say this is nineteen seventy eight. The carey movie is just getting ready to come out. It is the right timing right like carries gonna come out next year. This is his most recent novel Gotcha like a lot of people are going to be introduced to him through carey and if they're going to go to the bookstore and pick up the most recent stephen king the stand is what they're gonna get. Yes so so. Maybe maybe it's less about this new novel specifically more about like a confluence of factors In having a pretty solid. I mean as we've discussed on the show are pretty solid backlog. At this point i mean you. You're not going to. You're you're not going to be able to read rage right like you would not even king if you did. Read it and so Any stephen king book you pick up Win kerry comes out. You're going to be probably happy women. And i should say also i think i think to some extent right. Maybe the stand does help with making stephen king stephen king Because if you pick up the if you haven't heard of the sky in its nineteen seventy nine and you pick this book up off the shelf. It is kind of unlike anything else that you're going to be likely to pick up in your in your local five and dime a one hundred percent and i think that has to do with genre. I think finally we can. We can actually talk about the the plot of the novel But i think it has to do with shauna. And i've weirdly enough become like a big genre person now that we've been reading these Stephen king books Because something that shared between your experience in my experience is that when i was growing up The only people that i knew who read stephen king or me or my friends who is the same age and we will get it from the library in. Everyone's mom like. I'd i'd not know until i was an adult right. I never met an adult man. Who had read a stephen king novel It was all adult women. And i think that actually has something to do with stephen king. Genre I maybe i i don't i don't think he's writing for women necessarily but i think that.

"Art is referencing. Oh yeah that's important thing. If you're a person who listens to this podcast but doesn't really care about stephen king in the particular and has no idea what's going on in the cover art for this podcast that is based off the original coverage or these mythical figures fighting and i definitely picked up the stand with the cover on it thinking hell. Yeah there's going to be. This is stephen king and medieval combat. A fantasy novel hellier. And maybe i'd already read is not dragon at that point you so i was like keyed in for stephen king being a fantasy guy and i got something different. So let's say. I found it kind of organically and was not directed to it. You know i didn't know. I didn't know its reputation for example. I didn't know anything about that. Other than it's a stephen king book. It's one that i have access to cool. Cover the end. How are you introduce michael. I've already said that. I my first steven king book was thinner And my mom was a a stephen king reader and the stand was my mom's favorite steven king book. This was what she told me And she told me her story of reading the stand and it was when she was she would have been a late teenager early twenties whenever this book came out and she talked about how she started reading it one day over over like you know the winter or whatever it was like she was on a school break she started reading it and even even in its cut form. This book is like eight hundred and some pages long like it's still. It's still the size of a fantasy doorstop novel. She started reading it one afternoon and then read through the night until she was like almost falling asleep in bed like the only reason she stopped reading was because she could not keep her eyes open so she went to sleep and then woke up. Unfinished the book. That evening like that is how like enwrapped. Mother was by this book. So i hear this. And i think damn that's got to be a great book so i search out of the stand to read and something else that is very important for my version of this story is that i was much more online than you. And by this point. I had by the time i was reading the stand. I had gotten a wrapped up in stephen king fandom on early two thousands internet i just i wish i could go back and yeah you this. Michael like like thirteen year. Old michael on the The like stephen king List-serve everyone's talking about what books they're reading..
