"And we gave it all to you. Whoa. Yes, it's worth the basement. I'll watch it. All right, and then we're gonna end with AJ's father. I said, guys, you're gonna want to see this human ingenuity, this MacGyver-like moment. I'll read it, AJ, I'll let you. Unfortunately, my dad had a deer run out in front of him. He missed it, but he crashed going 45. He's okay, but the bike was not. On the fly, crafted a makeshift oil tank out of an antifreeze jug from the auto parts store. It's right through Kansas today. You can see it right there. Awesome man. Yeah, that's- Hats off to your father there, AJ. Yeah, so my dad is on the Cannonball Run, which is a really big like motorcycle endurance race on antique motorcycles. He's riding a 1928 Indian Scout from Virginia Beats to California. And basically you have to like, every day they ride like 200, 300 miles and you have to get to the destination in a certain amount of time. And it's sort of like a points race. So these bikes, they don't go really fast, but to keep an antique motorcycle in good shape and to keep it running while they ride across the country is half the battle. Like if your bike breaks, you got to fix it on the side of the road and get to the destination in time. So he was cruising along and through Tennessee there and the deer ran out in front of him. He laid it down, got going, rode the bike up out of the ditch and went to a parts store and fixed it. His oil tank was messed up and made a makeshift oil tank out of a anti-freeze overflow jug. And he's a rider through Kansas today. I talked to him on the phone last night. He's just having so much fun. The community of riders that he's with, like a hundred plus riders that do this every year, you have to be invited to go. And he's just tickled pink. And I'm glad that he met that community and is like integrated. They all think he's a genius because he made that fix there on the fly. What year is that Indian? Did you say 1923? 1928 Indian Scout. 95 year old machine right there. Is your dad, does he do TA? I want to follow his chart, man. Well, no. He looks like a genius. Yeah, he's been a motorcycle mechanic his whole life. He built all my dirt bikes. All my dirt bikes were rocket ships. And now he's passionate about it. It's what he does. And I'm still trying to get him into crypto. I know he'll jump in eventually. Okay, all right. All right, it looks like he has a technical mind. Yeah, for sure. Maybe he'll be really into crypto mining. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe I could kind of sneak into it. It's the freaking command line prompts that stops people. Yeah, but shout out to Big Al. I hope you're safe on your ride, man. All right, all right. And that's Peter's helmet. Can we show that helmet one quick time? Yeah, it looks like an Evel Knievel. Oh, yeah. It's a Troy Lee Designs Evel Knievel replica. Okay. Yeah, with the American flag. All right. MacGruber. Yeah, he's true MacGruber. All right, that's all we got. We got Owen. He's staring at me all weird, holding a knife. Put the knife, what, man? What do I need to do? All right, folks, it's been a wonderful episode. Is the basement back today? The people are clamoring for it. The people need it. The basement's back today. Oh, man. Basement's back, basement's back. Okay, basement's back. I'll be here at ATB at 5 p.m. Make sure you check out the basement, 2 p.m. And AJ, you got a space this weekend today? No, I wanna start back with the spaces. I've just been kinda putting the feelers out on who to maybe get a consistent kinda show with. I miss doing the Twitter spaces. I was doing two, three, four of them every week. I'm gonna figure something out here. I just wanna make sure when I come back that I do it right. I am missing out on the consistency, which is unfortunate, but I'm pretty sure that if I bring something more valuable to the table with the right people, that it'll be good. All right, Brian Baca, wow, your dad will be in my town tomorrow. If you wanna hold a sign at the side of the road, like, AJ told me to buy this coin, you know, that'd be pretty funny. All right. That's hilarious. All right, folks, that's all we got. Hit the like button. Hit it right now. I'm gonna give you two seconds. Those who hit it feel good now.

"Right. In the chapter, the book is told in first person and the chapters go back and forth between Ike and his adventure in Montana with Evil Knievel and Lucy and her adventure in tabloid journalism in Washington. I did it to see if I could do it, to see if I could pull it off, because the previous two books were in third person, which is safer and easier to write in. And I wanted to try not only to write in first person, but to go back and forth between Ike and Lucy to have them sound different, to have them read different. We hired, obviously, two different voice actors to do their chapters. And I think they did. I think they did a really good job. I got to listen to listen to audition tapes and the like. I was wondering that was fun. I was wondering if you actually listen to audition tape for vocal artists, because now if you get the wrong person, it kills the book. I won't listen to a bad narrator. No, no, that's such an important part right now. I'm listening to Paul Newman's memoir and on tape, and it's read by Jeff Daniels. And it's good because it's Jeff Daniels. I mean, I listened to Quentin Tarantino's novelization of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it's read by Jennifer Jason Leigh. So like if you have the right narrator, it's good. And I'm like you, I buy the Kindle version and I hook it up with the audible version so I can listen to it in the car. And then if I want to keep reading, it is already adjusted to where I was in the page and I can keep reading. Oh, it does? Oh, I didn't know that. I have to cut it off for the chapter. Last question, Jake. How in the world do you do a book tour in the middle? I think you're interviewing Ron DeSantis. Maybe that's already in the can. But how do you do a book tour in the middle of a presidential campaign? Well, it's difficult, but obviously everything I need to do for the Ron DeSantis interview takes priority over any book stuff. So we've just rescheduled a lot of things. And this interview will be tomorrow from Columbia, South Carolina. And that's obviously top priority because that's my most important job, my day job, being a journalist, asking Governor DeSantis these questions. I know this is the first, quote unquote, legacy media interview he's done. And I want it to be I want it to be fair, but I also want it to be tough. And I want it to be you know, it's there's no way I'm going to please everybody, that's for sure. But I want it to be you know what I mean, Hugh, in that sweet spot of like respectful, but also like you're interviewing for the most important job in the world. Let's let's have some good questions. His memoir is very good. He's a kid from the land because his grandfather's from Pittsburgh and his mother is from Poland, Ohio. So he's actually got a lot of Midwestern in him. Jake, I'll let you go. This is a fabulous read. All the demons are here. Congratulations. Keep selling books. I'll see you soon. Thanks, Hugh. Appreciate it. Good to see you. You're welcome.

"And I've used a lot of metaphors for former President Trump. He's Nelson Rockefeller without the art collection. He's P.T. Barnum without the circus. He's a lot of things. But you use evil. And I don't know if you meant it to be Trump, but there is he had a love of spectacle. He was not tied to anything that was new. He's something of a bit bargain bit. The entire decade was a Polaroid feeling. Evil never made calculations. Then you warned, don't confide in evil, because if you confide evil, evil will use it. And evil surrounded himself with yes men. Now, that's not Donald Trump 100 percent. But how much is evil a metaphor for the former president? Well, I think that when I learned like I was not a fan of Evil Knievel as a kid. Just his his charm eluded me. But I had friends who had Evil Knievel lunchboxes and Evil Knievel action figures and the like. And I was out fishing in Idaho and a friend of mine is a huge fan of Evil Knievel. And obviously, Idaho is where the Snake River jump or the failed Snake River jump took place. And he is a quintessentially American character. He's not meant to be Donald Trump in the book, but he and Trump both share. They share this quintessential American character of and this is not meant in a pejorative way. Obviously, Evil Knievel and Donald Trump are two very different people. I mean, Evil Knievel was a was a thief and a criminal early in his career. But they have this. You talked about P.T. Barnum. They have this ability to capture a public's imagination, to get news media coverage, to shoot from the hip and not really pay any consequence when it comes to saying things that if other people said them, you know, they're so offensive that they would get in trouble. There is something larger than life, his charisma, his ability to get fans and supporters that is evocative of Donald Trump. And it is not hard to imagine them if the timing had worked out being friends or allies or 100 percent some ways, maybe, you know, competitors in some ways. Yeah, he would have been I say Nelson Rockefeller without the art collection because Nelson Rockefeller had a quite colorful personal history. He was dyslexic. He did not read. He just kind of made it up as he went along. He never met a headline he didn't like. He was New York and he was big. But Evil Knievel is very on the nose on evil. I didn't like him at all. I watched the Snake River jump because the whole country did. It probably had a ninety nine share when that happened, because everyone thought he was going to run into the canyon wall and die. But he didn't. And I didn't know he was named Bob. It's wonderfully plotted. I want to talk about the mechanics of this right now. I told you when we were setting up the interview, you sent me the book. Thank you. But you also I bought the tape because I have to use my time and the readers are quite good and you use two narrators. So how did you select the narrators for this? Because there's Lucy and there's Ike.

"I think so. I think that this is that specifically about a specific group of people in this in this fiction following Evil Knievel and his fictitious run for president across the country. But as you see, Hugh, in that mob are some people who are just, you know, prone to violence and crazy and some people who have really legitimate grievances with the country. I mean, I think the most sympathetic characters in the book are the Vietnam veterans who are camping out in the West and Ike joins up with them. And some of them are suffering from they don't know what it is yet, but some of them are suffering from cancer as a result of Agent Orange. And there are real grievances there. And people who are frustrated often find common cause. And whether it's whether it's at a Trump rally or at a Black Lives Matter protest or in this fictitious book, in this fictitious mob, there are lots of people with lots of different issues. And they can sense a common cause, if not an exact common purpose, I think. In fact, stay tuned. You got to listen to the podcast today because there's a character in All the Demons Are Here named Caleb White, who is based on Chad Green, which I know quite a lot about because I had to write a paper about him as a senior at Harvard. And I followed Dr. Truman around during that whole drama. We're talking about that in the final segment on the podcast. Go out and get Jake Tapper's All the Demons Are Here. You will be it's a good summary to Selena Zito tweeted this morning belongs under every umbrella. Thank you for listening, America. I'll be back on the radio show tomorrow and we'll finish the podcast and post it shortly. Stay tuned. Welcome back, America. Last segment with Jake Tapper. Jake, I got weirded out when you brought up Caleb White because I knew Dr. Truman, who was Chad Green's doctor, to avoid taking any science courses as an undergraduate. I took the sociology of cancer for the nat sci requirement and I went down to MassGen and I followed Dr. Truman around and he was trying to get the Green family to treat Chad with what would have been painful, but life saving leukemia. And they took him down to Mexico for laetrile and he died. It was a tragedy. How did you find out about that? So that's a great question. So Slate has a great podcast called One Year. And coincidentally, after I had picked 1977 as the year I was going to do for all the reasons I mentioned before, Elvis dying, Studio 54, the New York City blackout, Nixon Frost interviews, you know, Evel Knievel literally jumping sharks, etc. I listened to the podcast and one of the stories told is this story of this poor little boy and the false hope of laetrile. For people who don't know, laetrile was this alternative cure for cancer that was not real and did not work. But a lot of people put their hopes in it. And unfortunately, a lot of people who put their hopes in it ended up dying because they refused to participate in, you know, very painful chemotherapy processes that ultimately are the best chance. I wish they weren't. I wish there was a quick and easy pill that people could take. But and then this poor little boy died. And I have a fictitious version of that in all the demons are here because, well, I don't want to spoil no spoilers. No spoilers. Obviously, there are a lot of there. Obviously, there are people who were making money off of laetrile. I mean, that's just a fact. And poor Steve McQueen put his hopes in the laetrile and died in Mexico, unsuccessfully fighting cancer. So that's how I heard about it. I heard about it on this podcast. And I thought that really reminds me in many ways of the skepticism that people have today about the CDC and the NIH and medicine. And I'm not talking about covid now, but just in general, there is just this mistrust of science and, you know, and this belief that in 1977, this was a very real thing. Jimmy Carter was asked about it during one of his call ins at the White House where there was this woman in North Carolina and her dad was her dad had cancer and he wanted to be able to try laetrile. And, you know, at that time, it was the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, but they wouldn't sign off on it because there was no medical evidence backing it. And again, he died. And it's just it's sad, but it is so evocative to all the mistrust of government and mistrust of health advice that we that we heard in the last few years. And also, just more broadly, this quackery about childhood vaccines, which are life saving, and this idea that the people are just pushing childhood vaccines because they want to make money as opposed to they want to save lives. It's just it's this very real thing. It's out there. It's on the left. It's on the right. And it's it was worth writing about because, you know, you and I have talked about this before, Hugh, but history doesn't repeat itself. It's been said it rhymes and there's a lot of rhyming with that with that chapter. Dr. Truman was so in agony over what these parents did because he loved the little boy. You get to love these kids when you treat them. And they spared him away. And it was a disaster. But it was the first eruption of distrust. And the right to try legislation, I think, has its roots back in Chad Green. Jake, now let's talk about the metaphor. Evil. You know, I don't know much about evil except the Snake River jump.

"In 1977, it is the post Nixon post Vietnam War era. And Charlie, along with a lot of Republicans, are trying to figure out what's next for the Republican Party. That's kind of like a subtheme in the background of the book. You know, I read back to back and I read and listened to All the Demons Are Here. We're talking about that in a second. Then I read Kim Straussel's new book, The Biden Malaise, which is about the Carter years, primarily comparing them to the Biden years. And she's on the nose about the 70s as well as you are on the nose about the 70s. The one thing that you stretched, Charlie Marder gets elected to the Senate in 1974. No Republicans want anything. They lost four net Senate and forty nine net in the House. Is he did anyone win in 1974 that I'm unaware of in the Senate? Well, remember. OK, so, A, this is fiction. So but B, Charlie, in my alternative world, Charlie, because he was he voted for to impeach Nixon as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, he and real life Congressman Larry Hogan Sr. were the only ones to do so. So in my fictitious world, because Charlie is lauded for that and lauded for his skepticism of the Vietnam War, he gets a lot of Democratic votes and the Democrats put a weak candidate against him and that's how he wins. But yes, I recognize that it's fiction and I have to take some flights of fancy. My first campaign was Paul Cronin's campaign for Congress in 1974 and I was volunteering as a freshman in college. He got wiped out by Paul Zongas. It was just a bad year to be a Republican in 1974 and 76. Jake, why is Charlie Marder anti pirate? Why is he anti pirate? Yeah, because pirates are not romantic vision. You know, the way that we romanticize them in this country with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and they're they're horrible. Is that a Jake Tapper thing? Is that is that a Jake Tapper through the book? Yes. Well, I mean, it's because somebody uses the term when I join our merry band of pirates and and and and Lucy thinks about how much her dad hates that when people romanticize because he's an academic. And you know, this pirates were marauding, murderous, raping thieves. They were they were horrible people. There's nothing romantic about it. They weren't soldiers of fortune. They were they're criminals. They were criminals. And the only reason why terrorists are romantic is because they were on boats. They're terrorists on boats. But I still love talk like a pirate day in terms of Lucy and Ike. I am right between them chronologically in age, as you said. I'm right there between those two. And I am curious, did you is there another martyr child coming along anywhere or are we going to go three generations down the road? I don't know what's next in terms of fiction. I wrote and I'm in the middle of writing one that takes place in 1984 because I've done 50s, 60s. This one 70s. So the next one logically would be the 80s. And I'm in the middle of writing one right now that's from the point of view of Lucy. And she is on a special cruise ship on their way to Normandy in 1984 for the 40th anniversary of the D-Day invasion and Ronald Reagan's big speech and the like. And this cruise ship has all these World War Two heroes on it and all these generals and all these people who helped win the war. And on the very first night, one of the top generals of World War Two disappears. So that's that's the next one in the series. But I don't I don't have Ike or Lucy with child in book four. I mean, I guess I mean, they age, you know, like in Gasoline Alley, like Danny Silva and Gabriel Alon. I'm going to talk to Jake during the break. He's going to come back for two more segments. All of this will be on the podcast. Don't Go Anywhere Radio audience. Jake Tapper will be right back on The Hugh Hewitt Show. Welcome back, America. Part two of my four parter with Jake Tapper about his brand new book, All the Demons Are Here. You can order it from Amazon. Jake, this is a short segment. So I want to know where Caravaggio comes from, because he just kind of lands in the middle of the book. And I thought, oh, Jamie Gangel and Danny Silva are talking to Jake about painting. Where did he come from? So Caravaggio is in there because there is a conversation about can you admire can you separate the art from the artist? Can you look at somebody's great achievements such as Caravaggio's gorgeous art and distance that from the murderer that was Caravaggio? And it comes in a conversation about Evil Knievel. And can you look at his great achievements as a stuntman while separating him from the fact that he was kind of an awful person, like he was a bigot and he was horrible to his wife, et cetera? It's a little bit tongue in cheek, but also just one I wanted to this is a boozy conversation at the Dead Canary, this fictitious bar in Butte. But it's a conversation that I think a lot of us have about, you know, Woody Allen and all sorts of other people. Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, can you separate a man from his work, especially when that that individual is a horrible person? But Caravaggio just seemed like a fun way to have that conversation. And it was a little it was a little too early for them to be talking about, you know, it's 1977 in the book. So they were some of the things that would have offended us in 2023 maybe wouldn't have been as offensive to the culture, especially to Ike and Governor Lucky Strong in this boozy conversation in 1977. So I thought a murderer would be good. You know, the I was reminded of Danny's books, but I also you mentioned the Bitterroot Mountains. C.J. Box is the only other person who's ever mentioned the Bitterroot Mountains in my reading habits. Do you read C.J.? I don't, but I spend time out in Idaho every year, and so I am becoming little by little familiar with the terrain out there, and it's just absolutely gorgeous. I will admit I've never spent a winter there, so maybe my love of the land would be a little tempered if I had to sit and live through one of their isolating winters. But I do just love the landscape and I love to fly fish out there, too. I was going to ask if you were a fly fisherman, because that's what takes people to the Mountain West and a bunch of I come to Maine in the summer. Don't go anywhere, America. I'll be right back with Jake Tapper on the radio and then for a segment coming up afterwards. Stay with us. Here's the book. All the demons are here. It's on Amazon. It's also in every bookstore you could possibly want flying off the shelves. We'll be right back, America.

Good to have you back on the Hugh Hewitt Show. Congratulations. Another great thriller. Thank you so much, Hugh. It's great to be back. It is a very good read. It's also, I think, a very provocative metaphor. Am I right about that latter part? I think it's fair to say. Yeah, there are a couple of metaphors in there that are resonant to today's politics and today's news media situation, 100%. Even though the novel takes place in 1977, I played with some of the characters there and invented others to make it relevant to today. 1977 is my sweet spot, Jake. You're too young, but I lived that. I was a senior in college in 1977 and 78, so I lived all this stuff, including the blackout. And you got it pitch perfect. Who was your research advisor on 1977? Because you're too young. Well, I was eight, so I don't, it's true, I don't remember much. I remember The Gas Lines and Jimmy Carter and I remember Elvis dying, which was very sad to me because I was an Elvis fan. But as with all these books, you know, the first one, The Hellfire Club in 1954 and the second one, The Devil May Dance in 1962, I just dove into research from the time and, you know, Life Book of the Year, People Book of the, you know, Magazine of the Year, and read a lot and watched a lot of documentaries. Evel Knievel is a big character in the book, as you know. I watched a great documentary that Johnny Knoxville produced called Being Evil. Watched another great documentary about Elvis Presley called The King by Eugene Jarecki. And thankfully, 77 is recent enough that there's a lot of, there's a lot of documentary evidence and, you know, newspaper reports and stuff that's very accessible. And it was really fun. You know, my memory of 1977 is probably a lot lamer than your memory of 1977 because mine was just, you know, in my backyard. And I didn't know about the wild, you know, I knew of disco music, but I didn't know how wild Studio 54 was. I, you know, I knew, well, I didn't know about Summer of Sam and the Son of Sam Murders. My parents hid that from me. So it was a rediscovery of an era for me and it really was a very bizarre time. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll, people talk about that being in the 60s. It really, it's sex, drugs, and disco, but the 70s was a much more wild time. It's definitely 77 to 80. The curse of disco fell on my college years and it was called Boston, Boston in Boston, not Studio 54, but very much the same thing. Jake, I am surprised though by Elvis. I am not an Elvis guy. We're going to come back and play the only Elvis song when we do our third segment as the intro on the radio. Where did you pick up this Elvis stuff? Because the Fetching Mrs. Hewitt loved Graceland, but she's not an Elvis person either. And she's also a senior in college in 1977, 78. Where does Elvis come from? My mom, my mom was a big Elvis fan, born in 1942. So that's really in her sweet spot. And so I knew Elvis music from her. And he was pretty cool. I mean, for, you know, for me, six, seven, eight years old, his comeback special on NBC, the 1968 comeback special. I defy you to find a better hour of television. You know, it's funny. So the book tells the story of Ike, who is a 20 year old AWOL Marine and Lucy, who's a 22 year old aspiring journalist in Washington. They're the kids of the protagonists in the two previous books. And Lucy, the journalist, has a lot of my habits and a lot of my more annoying ticks, like correcting people when they misuse the word ironic and such. Ironic! A footnote gets dropped on ironic.

In 1974, evil knievel, the world's most famous stuntman, attempted to jump the falls. People around the world watched on TV as he launched off the ramp on a steam powered rocket that he called the X two sky cycle. Unfortunately, knievel didn't make it to the other side because the parachute deployed two soon and he crashed into the snake river. If you're in the area, check out the evil knievel jump site, and on national Idaho day, celebrate the gem state in all its glory. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and in the case of cherry cobbler, that need was for a pudding. I'm talking about British settlers in the American colonies who were longing for a taste of their hometown favorite, suet pudding. The problem was a lack of ingredients and the rudimentary ovens, which most people had in the new world. But this episode of dessert impossible had a very happy ending. Clever baker's opted for stewed cherries instead of suet, and when topped with biscuit dough, the substitutions were quite delicious on national cherry cobbler day, celebrate the ingenious results of making do with what you have on hand. You can't have your pudding if you haven't had your meat. Listen, I don't want to put it. That's something that my dad used to feed birds. That's why I thought too. I don't want to live in a place where we're thinking we want the fat over the sweet cherries. All right, that's why we live in America, John. That's right. My manager. I'm Marlo Anderson.

"knievel" Discussed on Fairground F*ck Ups
"Kings island was first opened in 1972 with the $31 million price tag. That's $214 million adjusted for inflation in 2022. In its first season, the Parker sage 2 million visitors. That was double what Coney Island had received in its final year of operation. King's island rides accredited with invigorating the love of modern day roller coasters. The ride, the son of the beast, will induce a weak feeling in the legs just at the mere sight of its dips and height. It was also the first ever amusement park to sell pizza. When the park first opened, many popular TV shows used it as a filming location, such as the partridge family and the Brady bunch. Even evil knievel, the coolest stuntmen in the history of the world, successfully jumped 14 Greyhound buses at kings island. Clearing a record breaking distance of 41 meters. A record which stood until 1999. Woody Harrelson used to work there and they even had Carmen Electra in the dance show. As we know through previous seasons of fairground fuck ups, while so many people go through the turnstiles of these parks and have a great time. Many of these parks have dark chapters to be uncovered. As we are about to find out, kings island has a dark chapter known as black Sunday. It's Sunday, June 9, 1991. 8 30 p.m. one part of kings island is October fest. A tribute to the German beer drinking festival. Opened with the park in 1972. The area resembles a German town with timber framed German style architecture. The first house building is its central attraction. Featuring live shows with several indoor eateries. Nearby is an outdoor bar that serves German beers and other drinks. With a portion of its seating area located above some water. Bordering October 1st Lake. At approximately 8 30 p.m. in the evening. Timothy benning, aged 22, and William heathcoat, aged 20. They will work colleagues and were there for a company picnic day. We're crossing a bridge when a freak accident happened. As they went over the bridge to go on one final ride, bending reached into a bubbling fountain to splash water on his friend. Once Ben in hand touched the water, he went into a convulsion. Losing consciousness before falling into the shallow water. His friend William heathcoat jumped in to pull him out. Immediately hath coat was shocked and convulsing. Upon hearing the screams, epoch security officer, Daryl Robertson, aged 20, who had recently won an employee award for his dedication to guest services. Jumped in, attempting to help and went into a convulsion as well. Within seconds, three young men were in the water, all unconscious, and fighting for their lives. Howard heath and two others heard screaming and went to help. Heath touched the water, but by now the circuit breaker had apparently tripped because he felt no electric current. Heath and two other men pulled the victims from the water. Heath's girlfriend Paula Earl's a nurse from Indianapolis, administered CPR on one of the victims and directed others to do the same. Emergency services arrived at the October fest zone of the park. Benning was taken to Beth as to hospital, where he recovered and was released in a couple of days. In a sad, cruel irony, the rescuers, heathcoat, and Robertson died. But benning survived, the person who first reached into the water. The October 1st area of the park was emptied immediately enclosed off. But this wasn't the only tragedy unfolding. It's now 9 45 p.m. one hour and 15 minutes after the incident at the October fest pond. Tragedy again struck. Candy Taylor, a 5 foot 5 tall, 32 year old mother of two, was visiting kings island with two friends. They'd been at the park all day sipping beers and riding almost every ride in the park. Candy's Friends rode the flight commander while candy finished her beer. When her friends were done on the ride, candy bordered the flight commander. An intimate flight trainer ride with multiple two person pods on the ends of articulated arms. The ride would rise up and spin for several minutes. To add to the fun, a joystick was inside each pod where you could control the movement. If you have the stomach for it, you could perform a full barrel roll. Witnesses indicated candy showed no outward signs of intoxication. Though her autopsy would show a blood alcohol content of 0.30. Which is three times the limit allowed for motor vehicle operators in Ohio. Candy entered top number four on the road and closed the shoulder harness and lap bar. Ride attendance check both bars to ensure that they were properly locked and the ride began its cycle. Witnesses claim that the ride made four full rotations and candy's tub made no maneuvers. Then a performed a slow roll to the left, rolling through two rotations. On the second rotation candy fell from the capsule. Striking the ground, head first. Here is witness Gary Oakley describing what he saw to local news. She rotated one time and on the second time she started to go around. She was she was rotating left. And as she was as she was rotating left when the spot halfway around the turn, it just slung her out of the ride. She went ahead first and three or about 30 to 35 to 40 feet away from the ride. She was rushed to Miami belly hospital via helicopter. Where she was pronounced dead of multiple body traumas. At ten 34 p.m. park employees were baffled by both incidents. Employees had been working in the pond where heathcoat and Robertson had died earlier that same day. How could the water have become so deadly in such a short space of time? How did candy Taylor fall out of the ride she was locked into? Meanwhile, at king's island near Cincinnati, the investigation continues into two bizarre incidents that left three people dead. A 20 year old Cincinnati man in a park security guard were electrocuted last night while trying to save a third man who fell into a pond near the German beer garden area. Officials are trying to figure out where that charge came from. Less than an hour later, a Toledo woman was killed when she fell or was thrown from the flight commander, a twisting, turning thrill ride. Riders on the flight commander are restrained by shoulder harnesses, the accident marks the first time since kings island opened 19 years ago that someone has been killed on a ride. The park was open today, but the ride itself was closed..
"knievel" Discussed on The Most Hated F-Word
"Will say yes. So what what's interesting about. Homo sapiens is that we didn't always used to be the only humans on the block right. There were eleven or twelve other types of humans. We've got denise events we've got a group called the hobbits in indonesia there were all these other people if you will and we depending on who you ask. We either outlasted them or we killed the bright sort of on the way to becoming the only humans on the block and the way that we did. This has a lot to do with risk management. You know there's differing theories on this on how we kind of rose to the top of the ranks but the prevailing theory now is we did this by being good risk managers in when the food started to run out we moved on rightly moved on to a new place. A new for more fertile place to live you know when when things got dicey with a neighbouring clan or with some wild animals we met in the cave as it as it were so in a very real sense. You i and everyone listening to this. Podcast are here today because our ancient ancestors were scaredy cats. They were kind of chicken and they were. They were sort of fearful and that's why they live to fight another day so this loss aversion this risk aversion is sort of baked into our dna and we know that we're about two and a half times as upset about a loss as we are happy about a comparably sized game we have this sort of asymmetrical risk reward preference which actually makes a ton of sense right. Because if you're about to do something risky if you're gonna do some evil knievel motorcycle stunt and you land it. You might be super happy. But that has abates over time If you do some evil knievel stunt and you misjudge the risk and you get it wrong once. You're dead so in in terms of evolutionary goodness. Happiness and risk avoidance have nothing in common right it makes sense evolutionary. That will go out of our way to avoid loss and avoid risk versus gain happiness. And so we have to take that sort of primitive bought leaning me have and apply to privilege lives in north america right leg if you live in atlanta are edmonson wherever your chances of getting eaten by a wild animal or you know. Starving are are very slim and so we have this new reality. This new sort of risk reward reality that we're applying old modes of thinking old bodily tendencies to yeah very well said and this is about chatting to you but just making me think of when i started diving into the psychology of money in motions and decision makings. I started to realize that. I had to go back. And i've talked with us on the podcast to really look at. Why tried to hold onto money so much and it really as a kid. I was shy and in canada hockey players. Like we praise them and they just seem to make much money and people listen to them. They seem like that'd be catched. Money with power and this loss of version actually was really impacting. Me i'm just coming to it. Now is because i remember when i was out on my own having to pay the gas spill and lexical bill. I didn't wanna partways with the money because it was like taking away from this power identity that it was starting to develop and i guess there's a loss aversion was also in. There's like. I didn't want to lose the money. So it's head to so it just so interesting. How these on our own personal levels back to your idea of optimus personal own personal experiences with money's personal based on how. We grew up. Like what i talked to were there and i feel like these cognitive biases interplay so much of their own emotions were. Perhaps that's why you're seeing a third party could be helpful as another override to these biases. Because they help us get out of those. I guess stuck in those ways of thinking would you say that's why third party is helpful to help us get out of old. Patterns of thinkings are things that we might not be viewing properly. We all grow up with these stories based on how we grew up. Your parents. Were there sort of socio economic realities where we grew up right like having spent a summer in canada. I know at least a little bit about the sort of canadian psyche. Respect to money relative to the american psyche is very different and so all of these things. None of them are right or wrong. They just are. And so we sort of swimmin- this water of our money story. That may be good or may not be good for us. Should get it into the place where we want to with respect to reaching some financial goals and so working with professional can just provide some clarity around not money story in addition to just sort of the nuts and bolts of allocating those resources. Well knowing how much to save knowing the legal ins and outs all of that is of course important to up from the psychological perspective. Yeah it gets us sort of outside of our own experience outside of our own heads and gives us a new perspective on money. There's a lot of. I don't know if this was actually in failure. Studies are numbers that got thrown around. Maybe it's eighty percent emotions drive ninety percent of our decisions and like the logical decision. Making is ten percent. I don't know that's an actual study. Are people just say it but the ideas that emotion drive the majority of our financial decisions. If that's the case how important do you think it is for consumers when they go to this third party to question them to see what this third parties intentions are to their money story and their philosophy around money. It's an interesting question. Because when we look at financial professionals right when we look at financial advisers and how they are with their own money they are not much better than you or i when we look at financial professionals and how they are with other people's money on average they are significantly better. This is actually research out of canada in people who work with financial professionals for fifteen years plus ca two point seven x the wealth of their peers. Who have gone it alone. And that's after controlling for fifty five different variables so things like income and cost of living. And all this when you tease it out and make it all equal people who've gotten advice to nearly three times as well as those who don't and it's because these advisers have helped these people avoid these emotional decisions and it all goes back to this this knowing doing gap rate. Think about back. When you were dating right you could. You could look at your friends relationships like in college and you know you're all kind of partnered off and you go. Wow you know. They're good together. They're not good together. But then when it comes to your own room lying blind because the emotion that you fuel for that other person makes you sort of worse at making objective decisions about the pros and cons of that relationship you.

I didn't have anything to do with it. I waited seven years jump across canyon. I'm surprised though. I mean here's the here's the thing that's crazy about that snake river canyon jump if you watch the footage. The cycle the rocket takes off. It's got a huge rocket on it. It goes up this huge ramp and right at the end of the ramp the parachute pops out now. The rocket should've just burned away the parachute and burned away the cords and then you should have just went sailing off into the canyon with no parachute somehow. The parachute stayed intact. Let me tell you why. Shoot blew out on the launchpad. It didn't look bowl out after it got to the end of the ramp. It blew out on the launch pad was trailing behind the the rock that was steam powered rocket. That was that was water. In other words the rocket ran on steam.

So do we hear this with the feed and in what veto is forty four years on But in in some of the reports i read they called it. He's doing play by play. I don't know how it's going to be a pay per view. It has to be. Yeah gary says yes. I don't like this because in the day there was like a pay per view like back in the day every eighteen months. There's a pay per view. I come home the other night. And i'm saying when i'm watching the pay per view and it's yeah it's got the tick-tock guy. He's fighting broomstick. What forty nine bucks. There's fucking pay per view every week now and everyone. My son wants in on all of it. The definitive pay per view event of my young lifetime entire lifetime hogan vs andre the giant body slam dunk body. Slanted pontiac silverdome. That would have been.

Just everyone pile over to raise house and watch whatever the fight was but no one couldn't dream of now being pain for speaking of that evil knievel had the first pay per view when he jumped snake river. He had pay per view. But you'd have to go to like mann's chinese theatre yeah. It was atrocious failure. But it was it was the beginning would do like closed circuit things. They call and i was a pay per view. But it's like you couldn't go to manila to watch ali fight but you could go to new jersey and they really beam it into the theater hanged by technology. Yeah to do that. Well i think this is a good angle. Because i don't really be as you know anything about boxing. I'd watch the shit out of that. I'd love to see trump. Do the play by play modified. I'd love to watch that. He's gonna make it about himself. He's ever had heavy bag. In my opinion. I don't think he really now now. Which makes it better than he did was in the audience for many many brisk huge madison square garden. I've probably seen you know. Holyfield and tyson and pray. You probably goes back to ali. Because he's new york. Yeah the big fights are always madison square garden. It's always the people wanting to be sitting or atlantic city.

Men do wanna see 'cause we did movies men don't wanna see but there was a western one in i think it starred charles bronson and you can I can that's enough to go off if it was a man show bit. This reminds me that because is like he was this and then he retired but then they ask why and now he's got a kick ass. This is unforgiven a little girl. Yep right or a true grit sure. Yeah that is a little girl. That's exactly why i said it. I know we all respect clinics would do not talking about clinton. He's ninety three now like is he getting too old. Do star in a movie. It has a movie coming out. I kinda what i'm saying. Here's movies make money. There do well critically for the most part and come in under budget. Politics clearly dies.

Paul tire will be something other than what it was going to be which was going to be a let down from the hugh spectacle that preceded it. We want to go in there and see him get beat up or see him. look unstoppable. We want it some something to justify everything that led up to it. Okay the problem and culture right now. Is the everything that leads up to. These things is constant and art is psych sporadic. so we live in arrested development. Awaiting things like sean. She just dropped. Now it's time to await or a terminals so the internals drop. Dinner's going to be time to wait. Spider-man no way home. I so we're always waiting for something. They were always being guinea. Told how awesome it was. How awesome is going to be so we sit down for. There's just a letdown. That's going to happen. Drinking cayenne both know that collier knew it conway continuously over and over and over again. Hyped up hyped up something and set the expectations for so high that jesus would have had to have been featured on the apple himself boy to meet the expectations all right and not only was jesus not on the album. He couldn't make it. Here's a reference to few times a couple of times But it was just okay and normally if you say. Hey i'm giving are to you and art is just okay. Then that's fine. But i think because the spectacle is spectacle has never nourishing our is nourishing spectacle isn't okay. Nobody's gonna talk about being inspired by the last time but by the time the evil knievel jumped over the grand canyon. It was something that was cool to look at. But that's not going to inspire you in any way. It's a spectacle and it's something that's worth watching because you know it there's danger in as all those things but spectacle it nourish you all that really nourishes. You is the art. That's what inspires you and it did deliver. There were three songs on there. That i felt like. We're actually really beautiful songs. But other than that the guy who used to be able to do inspiration in nourishment in his sleep. Collier's throwaway songs on late registration. You talk about joint like Celebration and stuff like that. Throwaway songs made you feel something and now does the budget anymore. What do you think this shelf. Life is for musicians. Like i've discussed this on pods before. But where where they can really be great. And i'm not just talking about rap and hip hop from. I think just in general because i was felt like goes bad eight years and i think it's the same for directors to enlist their transcended scorsese. Obviously it doesn't count but for the most part you look at directors and they had these eight year runs where the films are kind of clustered into the. Maybe it's maybe it's ten at somewhere in there. And then for whatever reason they that the landscape tilts for them. They don't see things quite the same way with musicians. I don't care who it is once you get past eight year window. I think it's really hard to not only to keep coming up with stuff to sing about right about talk about but also your audience gets kind of burned out on the sound a little bit you know. And they're kind of use to you in a lot of ways. It's tough to keep surprising them and challenge that. And that's why. I'm so amazed. By what taylor swift been able to do that. She's in like year. I fifteen some fight that and it still feels like when she puts out new albums. Her fans are like really delighted. And and you know there. There's little gems in they all these reinventing yourself over and over here way less though now than they did about taylor swift four five years ago. That's that's the nature of the beast but when she put the two odds in the same year site that matter though that was a big thing at least for the people that gave a crap better. So what do what do you think the window is. What would you say this You say eight years. I say six or five And it depends on how often you drop like Kinder- is still in his window. You know Good jim kendrick Might be an outlier. Because of just how he's constructed is life. And how carefully is with everything so he might be almost more of like a bear..

Evel Knievel's son suing Disney over 'Toy Story 4' character
"Evil can Evil's son is on a collision course with Disney and Pixar over a movie daredevil character named Duke Kaboom Federal trademark infringement lawsuit, filed in Las Vegas accuses the movie maker of improperly basing the toy story for character on Can evil. His famous stunts in the sixties and seventies included motorcycle jumps over the Caesars Palace fountain in Las Vegas and a Rocket shot in a Snake River Canyon in Idaho. Kelly can evil argues that kaboom characters and knock office of his father's likeness on the Walt Disney Company says it will defend itself from what it calls Nevels meritless claims.
What Happened to the Daredevil Showmen?
"Sometimes we have a topic pick that we've You know we've got facts and figures and stats nailed down for an you know very concrete. It's something we can go right to say. You know it's this event it's happening on this day. Hey and here's the history of it and you know Cetera. This was just a little bit more Nebulous I guess and that we can kind of take this a few different ways if you like and It's more of a question that I had about. I guess in a way the absence of something that I miss from the past a little bit and I wonder if it's coming back it's still out there but I'm just missing out. Maybe that's the other part of this whole thing as as Kurt his. Show me a little bit over the last week that I might be missing out on a few things but my question into you initially was about dare-devils and stunt men and I know they're stunned. Women were GONNA say stuntman does not folk I guess for this. No I'm not gonNA say stunt folk okay but you get the idea. People jump motorcycles. People the jump cars people that perform incredible acts of physical daring hiring. You know they. They risk their lives in order to entertain us. And that's that was my question is that is this still out there in the I guess with the intensity that there was at some point during the mid nineteen seventies nineteen eighties even the late nineteen sixties. I guess think about the I wanna say I wanNA use the word flamboyant but that's not right the death defying no Yeah it does. Outlandish is a good one. I mean like obnoxious aren't larger than life. Okay Yeah Yeah. He goes battering me. I can't think of my word. Now yes yes you got all of those right and more kind of the the pageantry. I guess yes that was evil knievel about him okay. He would come out of his trailer in front of the audience. He would emerge trailer capon. He had his is white leathers on that were red white and blue. You'd be carrying his home and under his arm. He had a cane in his hand with With goal in a hit a gold. CAIN had black mostly behead gold accents accents and diamonds on it. He was a showman a true showman and he would talk it up to the audience. I mean he was. He was as good as any Professional Wrestler these days you know in the ring when they do their speech speech ahead of time you know their their story He was just as good as any of those guys. Were about talking himself up about promoting himself and how dangerous is going to be like. You might witness my grisly death this afternoon. But I want you to know this. I've come through with every promise that I've ever made for you people and I do it for you and I do it for me that kind of thing and if if you are a member of the audience in the actual arena or what have you and if you're watching live at home on television right well yeah did pretty often then. There's this moment in that speech where you think might be one of the last people to hear this guy talk. Evil people went down a lot so there's always that that chance. Oh sure and some people watch just for their like some people watch NASCAR for that right they wanna see the they they wanna see the big one right. So there's there's that element but I think that like the pageantry the The audacity of this character you know just how you come out and just just brighten brighten your face. Tell you what he thought of it. He was kind of a straight shooter as well Things weren't going right. He would he would let you know And not just evil knievel. There are other people to rely that in the in the past there was a guy Went by the name of the human fly. That will talk about a little while. He was a little bit like that. He had some of the costume characteristics or traits down that we're made him intriguing in some ways he the guy who climbed no no. This is a different guy. Okay this is a this is a stunt man but many people went by the name of the human fly. I'm I'm thinking of one in particular. He's a Canadian stunt okay. I don't want to spoil no but but I guess overall distinctive like where are the where the showman of today I mean I know that I I do know that there are stunt men out there. I know that there are people. Performance and women stunt women that are performing a lot of death defying stunts. A lot of stunts. That do require require a great deal of skill. You know a great deal of Of Courage of course. But where's the where's the build up the excitement of all that along with it you know where where's that gone. We've got a few theories that we've kind of real tentatively talked about in the hallway here at work but I think today if we could just Kinda talk this through maybe he had feel a little bit better about it because as we said in an earlier episode sometimes things happen that are monumental in our car industry you know we. He likes anything automotive motorcycle. Whatever trucks trains airplanes? All that stuff. We love all that stuff boats but sometimes there are things that happened and you know the world records were broken and we don't hear about them for a long time until listener writes in and says hey. Did you happen to catch this. You can see it on Youtube now. It turns out it was on television but it was online. Unlike some late Night Fox sports news or something or it was on. You know in twenty-seven yeah something like that it's just there's there's a lot happening capping out there still. I know but you have to. You have to really search for it you have to find it. Yeah what happened to the days of nationally or in some cases globally televised things where there would be someone saying you know tonight. Ladies and gentlemen for one time and one time only Kurt Darren Garin will perform the a death defying triple axis jump while sword fighting and alligator. Who's also on the motorcycle over school buses that are set set on fire and now a word from Garrett it was happening to that? That's exciting and everybody listening. We're all kind of like owns a motorcycle. There's now a gator gator. Okay I got ten minutes then might be part of the problem right. I mean that might be some of it. You know. You can't wait for that type of stuff but I feel so like you're right Ben that there's not one place. This is one theory and I know this is a little tough to grasp everything and I'm trying to get here and I don't know if I'm really convenient conveyances as concisely as I really want. I get it but it doesn't feel like there's not one place to go to see something like this happen. I mean it was a ABC. He's worth they had the Wide World of sports where evil knievel appeared. What like seventeen times I think on on that show and some of his jumps in him of his specials that he had on that program are still ranked number one in all time viewership for that particular brand so they were on air from like nineteen? I want to say it's nineteen sixty. They won until I was like nineteen ninety. Eight or something. It was like thirty some years seven years thirty eight years and some of his stunts are still like top five top. You know. I shouldn't say still at the end they were you know like top five contenders for the most watched the of all the programs that they did over that thirty seven years here so widely popular and I know I keep saying evil knievel. There are many others that will we. Can you know touch on today and discuss because there are people doing some fascinating and really dangerous things and and fun things to watch if you're there if you're you know in the crowd but a few and far between now and it seems like You know we have to. You have to go to the event to see it happen you happen to or you have to catch it on youtube a month later or a week later or whatever. It is You have to either catch wind of at early. Maybe through CLUBER BR group that says hey. This jump is going to be happening at this race right. Come and check it out. And there are ten thousand people in attendance or twenty thousand or whatever but if you're not among those people you you know. They're the ones who posted then and everybody else sees it. And sometimes it's like an exhibition opening act before a race. Yes yeah and I think that maybe One of the one of the ones that I can think of in recent pastor is before the one hundredth Indianapolis five hundred. They did a jump with a An all-terrain truck. It was a four wheel. Drive Dr Truck and it was made to look like a hot wheels ramp. It was It was hot wheels anniversary. Jump for the five hundred before the race and they had the CR- is like a ten story orange tracks up so it looked like a hot wheels truck on a hot wheels track and this guy did this incredibly long jump. I have the information or somewhere. I think it was I WANNA say tanner fouls but That might be the right name. Was We get to it. I'll tell you did some incredible long jump right in front of a live audience since a huge audience. That's hundreds of thousands of people. Maybe half million and up to half a million for that race in particular so that's a huge live event and it was also televised and a lot of people. Watch that so there's a chance that a lot of people. Aw that one event but who here knows In you know in this room even that just a few months ago there was going to be the world record the distance jump for a motorcycle. I was not aware of this. Never happened didn't happen. The writer was injured the day that the day before. I think it was supposed to happen. In a Prakash Carr's jump Injured both ankles and never happened. But I was going to be alive. Event called evil because evil live to or live evil to evil spelled like Hebrew ooh yeah and there was also a female writer that was going to do and I think she did ride through several Burning Wall's going to break a world record for how many she went through and I believe she did in fact do that but the long distance jump never occurred and it might happen this year. You never know if recovers while enough but because name was axel. Hodges I believe but I never heard about the promotion the lead up to it so if I did want to watch it I would have had to have been going to very specific places to find that information or on facebook on the right facebook pages to find information. So do you think it's an issue of the audience. The larger audience losing interest. Or do you think it's is an issue of the way that people find your transmit this information because this when we talked about this one of the things I started digging into stuff like the X. Games and the X. Games have tons of crazy stunt riders. You know crazy very talented very precise very talented Bikers and people who are writing. Who are doing you know? Not One trick ponies. They're doing multiple stunts convertible vehicles and stuff and they're around and they are as a accomplished technically as many of the greats of yesteryear stor year and it seems to have a great crowd at the X. Games but again to your point. It's not something you hear about on an the radio. It's not something that you often oddly enough. Even if you go to a lot of CAR news sites you'll really hear a lot about this stuff so I wonder what
Evel Knievel: Ramping Up To Glory
"Knievel Oh is one of the most iconic names of the twentieth century. There's a reason that people are still being compared to him nearly forty years after his last jump he rubbed elbows with Hollywood's greatest performed stunts. No one thought were possible. And pioneered the whole subject of stunting known as action sports which has blossomed into a multi multi billion dollar industry. Pretty much all of my favorite people of my childhood odor career to able able. Yeah I think we should preface this by saying most of our sources were just documentaries because there's a million documentaries on him The biggest one being being evil By Dick House House productions who did jackass a really good documentary She go check it out. After this absolutely I watched last night it is really good. Check it out on or wherever you can find it all right so Knievel performed over seventy five motorcycle jumps over his career. Most most of which were successful. Some were catastrophically unsuccessful. Many were on bikes. That weighed close to five hundred pounds. Most of the CAR Harley Davidsons. Yeah he loved Harley he he had a triumph Bonneville He actually started selling Honda motorcycles. which will get into? But I think that's crazy because Jeff I mean Jeremiah's motorcycle rider and he's like yeah it's like like motorcross jump. Bikes are like two hundred. Two hundred twenty pounds. He's jumping bike. That's three hundred pounds more than that. What's an an animal that was five hundred pounds grill? It's like jumping a hundred Yeah so these motorcycles are flat track bikes. That were. We're not designed to jump. As Joe said he also broke many many bones in his body and spent a lot of time in the hospital and against all odds he lived to a He lived to sixty nine years old. Nice Nice Nice for more impressive than his death. Defying stunts was eagles ability to act as his own promoter. Heitmann and publicist He knew how to pump up the drama and get the crowd on their feet I think that's my favorite part out of the documentary. I didn't know that evil was. He's like a handsome guy he's super now and just so confident like oozing confidence in every interview he does I. I guess it makes sense that he was so good at that. Because I mean you got I think if you have the mindset of like hey I'm going to jump over thirteen buses or whatever you also have to the confidence and be like I'm GonNa tell people who watch my stuff but like I don't know like you you talk to like race car drivers today. They're definitely there's only a few that only a few that can talk at all. Yeah EXAC- nerd. Best Friends with her dad. So it was very interesting seeing Mister Knievel and Action Green Anaconda by the way five hundred pounds. Wow which surprised me more because I. That's a big thing that makes a big meat tube. Evils Charisma inspired a new generation of stunt people around the world. He was a natural showman. con artist and outlaw. But he wasn't always evil He was born Robert. Craig Knievel on October thirteenth. Nineteen thirty in Butte Montana. Butte at the time was a small rough town known for the two things mindful of copper and bars full of miners. Robert's parents Robert Senior and an knievel gave birth to his brother. Nick a year later. Then They divorced soon after his mother moved to Reno and his father moved to California leaving Robert in Nick in the hands of their grandparents day says reading more round Butte and there is like three thirty thousand people in the town but there are three thousand prostitutes will serve all the miners so literally one tenth of the population was prostitutes. That means ten guys. We're doing the same Gal. Well Ignatius and Ama- knievel. His grandparents showered the kids with love and affection. Filling in a much-needed Ignatius We haven't Ignatius at donut. Then we haven't Agnosio. Yeah but like that's that's kind of a Sam his grandparents bought the boys Bicycles and toys and took in the fairs when Robert was eight Ignatius. Emma took him in his brother to a daredevil show. That would forever change his life from that point on the Joey Chitwood thrill show was a traveling. Extravaganza sends like a rockabilly band. Joey Chitwood Joe. Joey Joey Chitwood trill show played at the fair there. I'm surprised he didn't have his own signature. peachy cours So this extravaganza that featured stunt driver Joey Chitwood J. Turns and driving on two wheels and what amounted amounted to be a giant commercial for Chevrolet What really interested Young Kyu knievel? was the motorcycle stunts. Riders would smash new flaming boards at high speeds. They do we lease and jumped through flaming hoops. This show sparks something in Robert. In his words I would go home and take defenders of my bicycle and put clothes pins in cards so it sound like motorcycle. That was the start of his lifelong obsession with motorcycles. And
Michael Jackson would have turned 60 this week
"Helmet? I had a Rams bedspread Abed's brand hit a Rams that's vice asleep. My Browns helmet. Anybody. Sleeping helmet. Little one bar cross the front. Joe is exactly that's a long sixty three kid back then back in the sixties. I love my Browns helmet. Hugh browse helmet, I think, is the best. It's just plain orange, the Brown and white straight. It looked just just look just like your regular hit. You couldn't even tell you. He's just got a paint a white stripe of his skull. That's That's right. right. How to save a child that you should never would have got rid of the list. Yeah, that's on top of my list wasn't like what childhood thing did you probably Rams blanket, Chris, and Raj me. Remember this toward you guys. Remember the evil knievel little biting wind hit it on its head, and it would take off Chris. Well, he was so deprived as a kid. Mr. stretches stretch Armstrong. Yeah, I used to cut it open, eat the jelly. I've been. How are you still here? I thought that killed people. That was turned out. Great. Maybe that maybe we're starting to put some pieces together here. Yeah, LeBron has his new show the shop. Did you watch that. Yeah, I thought. LeBron's Laker now. Re- re- recalibrate with that
Tom Cruise, Steve Stone and WGN discussed on Steve Cochran
"At, ten on, WGN TV Moron entertainment as I recall this It's, not it doesn't feel the same Steve, out here for more on entertainment so we'll just introduce Dina's the. Moron. Quotient a little bit That's. Right to make up for, ever Steve right right Troy come on, Choi in a little bit I can do I can be Moron there's nothing. There's nothing new. But for this Let's talk mission impossible. Fall out the film the reviews they're coming in this is we're talking to Nick to Gilio yesterday about this is the only vehicle for Tom Cruise that. Makes money the the rest of Tom cruises career. At this point they're bomb, after bomb, after bomb they might be good. Movies but. They're they don't, do well too Jack Reacher and others have done, okay but nothing even remotely close, to now these. Six mission impossible, films that he that he's. Done that started back in. The year two thousand which is amazing that he's been doing this character and this franchise for nearly twenty years and there are no signs of slowing down. With this normally you get two or three films. In the franchise and it, begins to, fall apart no signs whatsoever This this film was about as strong and as exciting as. Any of them that have come along the premise. Is almost secondary to, everything that surrounds the premise which is some plutonium goes missing in the hands of, some bad guys they want to set. Off nuclear bombs around. The world to disrupt the world order and it's up to the impossible mission force should, they decide to accept the mission to find the plutonium and stop these, nuclear nuclear explosions that are going. To take place but this is done with with so much excitement it's like a Corey a daredevil choreography with this of one exciting stunt an action scene after the next he's not jumping out. Of a plane he's doing helicopter aerobics we talked about. The scene where he famously shattered his ankle real life, injury with this and he's the, the scene when When you all go to see the movie this weekend there's a scene, which he's running from rooftop-to-rooftop to rooftop to rooftop and jumping from. Rooftop to rooftop and there's. A point at which he instead of jumping from rooftop to rooftop he goes rooftop smashing into the side of the building and. Trailer yeah you look at it and go wow that's amazing, that stunt man really did a great job there is not a stunt. Man that was Tom Cruise and that was not planned he there was a misstep there in that that's the scene where he. Shatters ankle we talked about it yesterday they keeps going he's he's Scoglio keeps going until he told me that he knew that. They could only do this one time he knew. That something was very, wrong that he had broken something but still lifts himself up on the building as, you see in the movie and keeps. Running past the camera. And that's where he collapsed after he was out of the shot but that's that's Tom, Cruise it's one thing after another Let's bring in China why why do. You think that he didn't know that there's a there's a lot, volved with it but why does he want to do all of these elaborate scenes himself and risk himself to, the injuries he's a he's an action junkie I mean that's that's. What I think it is. He finds a tremendously exciting There are some, precautions that they take with harnesses and things I'm sure while he's doing all this building jumping you know. That there, are precautions so he. Doesn't seriously, hurt himself with any of this but. He just absolutely loves it I mean some people would say you know how how can hockey players get out on. The. Ice, and, go through the, physical abuse that they do but. I mean isn't that isn't that part of the adrenaline rush for asking I guess whether it's hockey or anything else where there's, a certain, amount of physical danger involved. Good hey dean during the break. Trae brought up a great question we couldn't think of another star, like Tom Cruise that you'll go see in the theater even. If you're not into the movie you know Tom, Cruise is a draw Justin brought up the rock rock can you give another star that, has power like that these days No That's a legitimate, questioning whether he's reading that movie star, gone where it's gonna, go, see Tom, Cruise Gina's movie. Star he not only is he the evil. Knievel of movies but he's he's a, really, good actor I'm in the scenes that don't, involve stunts, he is so, good at so motion. Empathetic in charismatic in. The roles that he does and this, this particular character, Ethan, hunt in particular There, there's just a draw to him and I think that you know part of the enjoyment of this movie is knowing that he's doing almost all the stunts that you. See there's, a helicopter scene toward the end of the movie it's. Him maneuvering. This helicopter and jumping out of airplanes in fact tell me about jumping out of airplanes last. Night on. The late late show. With James corden instead of a cruise just coming to, talk to him at the desk Tom Cruise may James corden jump out of an airplane with.
