"Governor. Jared polis on. Monday said he will ask the federal government to declare glenwood canyon. Sastre area gotta remember. The canyon has been closed since around nine pm on thursday. This according to a piece by marianne goodland out of colorado politics the canyon has been closed since around nine. pm thursday evening due to mudslides. That caused i mean horrific extensive damage to i seventy the interstate was open sporadically before that But it was also due to torrential rains and mudslides. No date has been set for reopening. The highway police said during a mandate presser that it could be days or weeks now. The most recent mudslides have been beyond anything ever experienced in the past this according to see dot employees who are surveying the damage. Eight forty now. Northern colorado's voice one of three point one thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen ten kfi dot com mornings with gail from the auto collision specialists studios. Joined this morning by cdot region for communications manager. And jared jared file jared. This is just incredible. The video seeing amount coming out of this affected portion of i seventy through the canyon and cdot saying we've never seen anything like this. I mean the damage is apparently so extensive. They don't know the extent of it yet. Yeah we we haven't gotten under it yet to see what the damage is done to the road part of the road on Is actually is actually underwater. The river has shifted and because of how much rain and mud was coming down there River shifted and actually is currently overtopping the the lower part of the structure so We do not not totally. What what the damage is And then just like your weather forecast today. you know. We've got more rain on the way. And so this is you know like they pointed out in the press conference yesterday you know. They got four inches of rain in a day when four inches of rain was the normal for the entire month of july. So you know that that's what you have to realize that this is different than what we're normally used to on top of that. Of course we're following up the year after the the most devastating wildfires in colorado history so without that vegetation to hold the ground there the water just takes that mud and debris and sends it down. And you know. We saw that on on fourteen week a couple of weeks ago. Yeah absolutely and and you saw the devastating impact that can have their imagine. Add on i seventy one of our biggest thoroughfares through the state. I mean you know that is. That's that is going to have a tremendous impact You know and it's one of those things. Did we know it was coming. There's no way you couldn't think that this was going to happen after the fires last year But the rains that we're seeing this year are way more than we imagined as well so you know we knew there was going to be some bad mudslides this year but nothing to this degree just because we're having more moisture than than normal. Yeah exactly it's just again. It's mindboggling when you see the amount of debris of the colorado river getting clogged with debris and apparently of some of the worst damage Thanks to a drone flying over this area shows the hanging lake tunnel surrounding areas absolutely inundated by debris in some spots. The debris has covered both the upper and lower decks of the highway. It's also threatening railroad lines across the river from highway. I mean this is just horrific. The heavyweight title is actually an interesting Story what happened when those when those mudslides came out you know we have a crew in hanging like tunnels that's part of where we monitor traffic Like we do at the eisenhower tunnel. And so there's a substantial structure in that mountain which most people don't know about Even i mean ours. Bigger but But hanging lakers for the substantial crew. In there well what happened when those mudslides happened. It's it trapped a lot of people in their vehicles and kind of like a man in the zombie apocalypse. Kind of thing. All these people got out of their cars and just started wondering to the to the tunnel and the crews there were able to put them up in cots for the evening just to keep them safe. So i think they rescued something like twenty nine people from the tunnels which was pretty amazing. So but yeah it's it's gonna be you know an and would when you talk about how long it's going to be closed you know. We really don't know the damage that's going to be on there. So we're we're clearing out right now trying to get that going but we can't cleared out when we know that there's more stuff coming so anytime we're in a under a flood warning and we have to clear everybody out of there and just see what happens next. So it's it's kind of a little like we. Just keep pushing that the rock up the mountain and it just keeps rolling back down on us so Yeah it's it's gonna be a long slog so that one you know and fortunately We do have some detours. That are available kevin horse. Yeah no. I'm not saying that easy but well we did have Our highways fifty project could actually close highway fifty Up there and now We actually halted the construction on that so now at least we have that detour route available. it this is just going to be a mess frei long time and and you know it's it's one of those things where you kind of the solution long-term who knows what that is. That's that you know our engineers. I'm amazed at them every day. And so they come up with some pretty cool ideas the the the roadway the way it is in that canyon already was an engineering marvel in and of itself and and to see it now. What they're going to have to do. I can't even imagine so. I'm gonna leave that too much smarter people now as far as truckers commercial traffic. My understanding is they're being advised to bypass colorado in early. Well yeah for the. I seventy part. I mean it's a lot easier to cut through either on either end To go around us so yeah. There's going to be a lot of traffic heading that way. But you know there's there's Fortunately we have i twenty five is a major thoroughfare and and then so if you're going north of course that's where we're we're kind of encouraging them to go around us. It's in that affected area of course talking about Glenwood canyon truckers are being advice to avoid that area. Well as we all are good reason. It's.

Mudslide Traps Over a Hundred Motorists Overnight in Colorado

"And over 100 motorists were stranded on a Colorado highway this week after mudslides shut down the interstate. The Colorado Department of Transportation says the motorists were trapped on I 70 in Glenwood Canyon overnight on Thursday, and about 30 of them took shelter in the hanging Lake tunnel. Crews were able to clear a path to rescue the travelers. On Friday morning, I 70 and Glenwood Canyon remains closed as flash flooding continues to create mudslides and the burn scars of the Grizzly Creek fire in western Colorado.

"Fax. And this with everything at stake here. That's why we felt it is important to go to federal court, and that's the right place to decide on this indeed, and I just want to emphasize once again, But before the Legislature approved this pipeline here in Michigan, they took all of these things into account. They looked at the safety measures. They looked at the potential for danger or accidents, and they Moved ahead and said you don't want it's okay and it's very important and we approve of it, and that's the bottom line. Right? That's right. Obviously, it's more work in a bipartisan way to someone on this and move forward with Colonel agreement. That's right. Right, right. What's the next step by the way? Well, it is in federal court. But I'll tell you the Great Lakes Tunnel project moving forward his own Frank, We're getting permits, and we're moving it along. Glad to hear it. Keep us up to date.

"Frank Beckmann Show News Talk 7 60 wjr already till the show. 808 590957 will be taking your phone calls now the rest of the way, and we look forward to that always here on the program. It's our favorite part way love talking to the newsmakers and get you all the information keeping you informed, But we also love hearing your views that what's going on in our world, the so much going on right now to talk about. Obviously, there is growing pressure now. He mounted by the M Bridge company. That's the Canadian oil company. The Canadian government and business interests are are starting to pressure Governor Gretchen Whitmer and hoping that she and those who work Alongside her like Can you say Attorney General David vessel? They're hoping to badger them into reversing the order that shuts down the M Bridge oil pipeline later this year. What were officials say that they're getting calls from nearly all corners of Canada? To allow that line five oil line crossing onto the streets of Mackinaw to continue operating. There's a May deadline in place right now that the governor put in place several months ago when she said she was revoking the easement over past violations, and those violations that we're talking about are really really minor violations. There's never been a major problem with E. M Bridge pipeline whatsoever. Underneath underneath the streets of back about you had. Yeah, you had anchor dropped by some some knucklehead. That's what I'll call him captain of a boat who dropped his anchor, well, going in 300 ft of water and traveling at full speed, and it happened to hit the pipeline. All I did was put a little dent in the in a sort of a I don't know what you call it, the something that holds the pipeline down. It was almost like a support. It wasn't even the pipeline itself. So there's never been a problem with the pipeline. And yet because of this, this opposition to fossil fuels that has been driven by people on the left like Governor Whitmer and Attorney General Nestle. They're they're putting on a full court press to try to stop the pipeline from happening well, the President Joe Biden has shut down the Keystone XL pipeline that's gonna cost thousands of jobs tens of thousands of jobs. The Canadian government has mounted pressure on our government to change that, but I don't know if there is going to change that or not. So let's talk about that a little bit here at the Frank Beckmann Shall. Ryan Duffy is joining us the end bridge spokesman and that Ryan is great to have you back on the show. Once again. How are you doing, my friend? Good friend. Good morning. It's good to talk to you, and it's good to see you here today to it's a little bit different than our usual meetings over the telephone. But I prefer it this way. It's good to have you back on. The governor's comments last night. What did you take from that? Is she she referred to line five only briefly, and you see what's going on with the Keystone XL Pipeline? R is M Bridge, expecting a full court press now to stop the pipeline from happening? Well, I don't think so, Frank. We do have a lot of support as you mentioned. You know, we're seeing a ton of support from the region in particular from Canada. I think more and more people are starting to see now, and people on the Canadian side and throughout the region are seeing that this is a regional system that provides us his energy We use every day in life. I really is just that. She critical piece of that regional system. And so you know, if anything were to happen the line five it wouldn't just affect Michigan. Although there would be serious consequences in Michigan, you know you'd have Ohio affected. You have Minnesota, Wisconsin and then over into Sarnia and beyond, so we've had around 40. Business groups and different organizations really come forward on the Canadian side to express their opinions, and they really are concerned about this, and I would say, you know, and it's a wide ranging group of different organizations that chambers of commerce industry groups. Local governments, and they're concerned about what's happening here in Michigan right now. I think there's a lot of surprise that we're seeing from people in Canada that officials here in Michigan would take this step. You shut down a pipeline that safe and it's working, and they're surprised. You know, we would be in Michigan, taking these steps to cut off other states and another country well, and here's the other part is, I believe Prime Minister Trudeau has as spoken out in favor of both the Keystone and the line five pipelines as very necessary for Canadian jobs, too. Yeah, That's right. I mean, again. There's a lot of support and you know, a lot of jobs really depend on line five across the border and so again regionally, it's extremely important. So we've made sure to let the governor know that we have full confidence line five continues to be safe. There's really no factual. You know, science based reason at all to make these moves against our easement in the strength that we add since 1953. There's no reason to be trying to shut down lying five whatsoever. Faenza is our federal pipeline regulator. They've looked at the line time and time again. They looked at it in June. He looked at it in September. They said. It is fit for service. So we just we very much remain committed to operating our line safety safely. We remain committed now to the Great Lakes Tunnel Project. It really is the solution going forward. It really solves all of these issues that the administration says they're worried about. And you know it would completely resolve all of those. So it is. It is the long term solution. It makes the pipeline that has been operating safely now for more than 65 years. That much safer, whereas as we talked about shutting down the line just has all of these severe consequences that I don't think anybody wants to see And then to make matters worse, the administration hasn't offered any long term or short term alternative way to get all this energy to people who really need it right now. Sure, From what I understand the prime minister over there, Justin Trudeau in in Ontario has also stood up and he backs these these pipelines that has complained to the U. S government about shutting down the keystone and it's also issued warnings about the possibility See that line five won't be built, too. And I think when you've got somebody in that position who is known as being a little bit to the left like Prime Minister Trudeau is maybe you gotta listen to him and say, you know, if it if it's okay with him, maybe maybe it's not dangerous at all The way and bridge has assured us all along. It's not in the way scientists who have studied it have said. It's not Sure that's that's why it really is a federal issue, and that's why we're now challenging what what the administration is doing here. We're challenging that in federal court because there are laws in place that you can't have a state on his own. Cutting off other states and other countries. And you can't have a state taking on the role of pipeline safety because that is offenses roll, so we really believe the administration is defying the law and all this. It's not following the science. It's not looking at the.

"J. R That's the number for you to call or text. Here on the Frank Beckmann show. We are also live on Facebook and on YouTube. She could watch it there. Uh And, uh, we talked about a lot of stuff today. Of course. That piece of the New York Times talking about doing away with the presidential debates, which I find absolutely crazy, and, uh, appalling, Quite frankly. But that's out there for you Talk about as well, of course, Primary day Ah, there has been ah, certain level of Expectations that the The Ah Turnout is going to be low. Primary said generally turnouts or low anyway, but they're expecting it to be even lower because they expect more people have voted absentee. So that's the expectation. Um, and so well, it'll be interesting to see what those numbers are towards the end of the day and just to see where people are. And we had a couple of people on our Facebook and YouTube talk about, um You know, they were only eight in line. They were just getting ready to leave at quarter to 10 and they were number eight on We had a couple. Other people say, Well, I was number 40. S so it could be a low turnout. So we'll keep an eye on that as well. 808 590957 808 590 W. J. R, um I wanted to. Ah, see? And yes, he has aren't so another big topic that we had read this weekend, of course, was this back and forth Pull between Theater, knee General's Office and Dana Nessel and Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the folks and N Bridge, And as it turns out, attorney General Dana Nessel will now end her challenge to the constitutionality of the line five tunnel law. S so she's going to abandon that portion of her action. Ryan Duffy, the spokesperson with Amber joins us Now. Here on the Frank Beckmann Show, Ryan. Good morning to you. Good morning, Chris. Thanks for having me on. Yeah, you got it s so tell me a little bit about what this means for you guys. Obviously, I assume it's It was pretty good news. But I don't know that you guys ever really questioned the constitutionality of the law that was struck up here in Michigan. Right. Our focus has been on the Great Lakes Tunnel project, and we've been able to stay on schedule with that all along. And so with this case, you know, the appeals court decided last month that our agreement with the state on the tunnel are legal and valid, and that upheld an earlier court acclaimed decision. And so now the attorney general did not take that on to the Supreme Court, so that case has concluded its done and what that means is our agreements with the state remain in place, and that includes the tunnel agreement. And then the third agreement, which allowed for in bridge to continue to operate line five while a tunnel is being permitted and constructed, So that's what that agreement says. So now we are looking forward to working with state to make safe pipeline even safer and complete this project. We're investing, investing the full $500 million in the construction when paying for everything. We know the majority of Michiganders support the project. That's the polling we've seen. We have had now 23 counties and the Michigan House passed resolutions in support of them. Ah S o. The next. Part of all of this, of course, is ah, The Attorney general's office says that they will now focus its efforts on other litigations related to the pipeline. Have you guys been aware of anything yet? That's come down from the attorney general's office on that front. Well, no, I mean, our focus has really been on the permitting an approval process that we're in. Right now. We really want to make sure Teo stay on schedule and and our project team, you know, which is about 30 people working on the project their focus solely on their project, and that's what they come in. To work every day to do work on the Great Lakes Tunnel project, So they've been able to keep us on schedule. But we do have permit applications in out of the Army Corps Eagle Public Service Commission, though they're all moving forward. There's been some public comment happening on those and those timelines are all built into our planning. That's really our focus. You know, we want to make sure to stay on schedule Start construction next year, finished in 2024 because we know more than ever. Right now. This is a project Michigan needs. There's there's two million labor hours that go into it. We place to use Michigan labor money will be spent all around northern Michigan hotels, stores, restaurants on those things, So that's that's our focus, keeping things on track with the project. So you said you've got permits out now, Where are you exactly? In the process of of this tunnel project, And like you mentioned you're looking to start next year and it would be, you know, roughly a three year process. Where exactly are you add in that process now? Well, we're really focused right now on the design of the tunnel, so that's moving along. You know, we completed our rock and soil sampling last year, and that was a big piece of the $50 million we've already invested in this project. And so that data has been guiding us here on the next steps we're taking And so, really, we're in the thick of permitting and approvals and and that does take a little a little while, but that is built into our planning. So that's going on and next up. We're going to be looking at ordering the tunnel boring machine itself, which is the A huge piece of equipment that actually drilled the tunnel that takes a year just to build that, and then you just for this project, and that says, so that that would be coming up. And that's that's the next step. But yeah, again are big focuses on permitting an approval. Awesome. All right, well, we appreciate the update on that. Obviously, it was a big story when when the attorney general decided tow to skip out on on taking it up to the Michigan Supreme Court. They've said they're going to focus on other areas. But obviously you guys have your focus, too. And you and you're worried about look just making this thing a safe is possible and getting it on the right track and and making sure that You know, the people of Michigan continue to have those those those minerals, the oil and the crew in the natural gas. Ah, that that they need. So we appreciate your time and helping that clear that stuff up. Thank you. I appreciate it. For sure. Anytime. Thank you.

Rancho Palo Alto maybe I duNNo. Palestinian days. Since somewhere in southern, California or welcome Demiana Garcia? I'll thank you. Thank you thrilled to be back and I mean we just keep bringing you back because you're such a joy, such a joy to have around.

The light agreement hasn't happened yet. Yeah, we're looking for. We are looking for it. May It might happen. It might happen today. You might happen today at. What are you here to talk about? Today I wanted to come on 'cause you know. I am a journalist after an an I need to. He's still employed. Well in these times, and after practice of that way in these times, it's unclear. You know there's been a lot of furloughing. There's been a lot of you know. People are losing their jobs and I was Right prior to all this I. With my manager at at the station, local news affiliate and rental rental, Palos, Verdes. Or Palo. Alto is that Palo Alto. Wherever, it is whatever it may be. And the Greater California. Region of the entire state. I. I, I was very heated with my manager at the station, and some words were exchanged by me towards him. I'm not surprised. You always get in arguments with people you instigate and like a common thing when I talked to maybe you. Setting it up like something was done to Yale only for us to find that you instigated. You. Take That's a T. I notice you also. Your voice goes high pitched. When you know you're, you may be maybe have to defend yourself at this moment in Time I. You know I I. No Stranger to being put on the defense. Knows at what happens when you're a maverick journalist? I'm sorry distracted you from telling us what the topic is. The topic for today. That's right we're talking. We're talking about hoarding today and it's wow up. In these times. You Know Quarantine Times. People are hoarding. You go to the store. You can't get essentials because the shelves are bare. Yet people who even didn't find. That courting tendency in their life before. Over sudden found themselves buying a lot of. Dry Foods and toiletries and stuff like that. But I how suspicion that you may have already dipped your toes into hoarding prior to the corner. I've never been horder and that's something I've prided myself on, and luckily unlike many, I haven't been affected by this calamity of things, not being available in the store I haven't been. Day One why? Everything shut down in quarantine. Right might go to CVS and I by the entire selection of toilet paper. I got all the TPP and. I haven't been without a role since the started. Not One day. So luckily greats for you, so yeah, knock on Wood I. have been unharmed. Unscathed. How much money did you spend just on the toilet paper paper? That day I dropped good. Five K just on TV. Something! He bought all toilet paper that CVS. Palette in the back that hadn't been unloaded yet to be brought into the store on onto the floor. I got that one, too. Yet sounds like. I think by my calculations. That's about five hundred packages that of like probably anywhere between six to ten rolls of each package. That's about right. Help because your apartment or House. Where do you? Reside. A MID sized CONDO. It's a one bedroom it's it's modern and I would say I mean you can't see. We're doing this zoom. Call Right now, so we can see each other are you can't see this in frame, but just out of for basically from right out of frame to the front door. Is to other, people. In the hallway. made out of toilet paper, so this sort of it's a gun. Super Mario Brothers landscape that I have to. You know it's very do do do do do do I'm like Mario walking to might to from the front door. Is it a struggle getting through and by the all that toilet paper? Would be, it would be. However I also kind of in keeping with the in keeping with Super Mario theme I did build little tubes, little tunnels pipes. For myself to drop into that. Take me like a little little lakes. Tunnel, system? And you live in an apartment that I imagine you're renting or do you live in a house? These like are these things that you had to run that by the landlord. Oh I. Don't run it by him. I don't. Know he I mean talk about difficult. Talk about unreasonable well, we know we always have problems with lent len land. Person Since, the last time we've talked, I've been through two apartments. I'm on my third apartment in what is less than a month. That's the same situation where you don't pay your Randy Jisk-. Well, it's the same situation where I have to do some very unpleasant unreasonable people. Right, and you had to move the toilet paper to so not only your all your things. I know have a lot of charts, skis and whatnot, but also foolish beanie, probably anywhere between four hundred and fifty to four hundred seventy rolls of toilet packages of toilet paper. Yeah, I mean. There was one day I was just driving back and forth, because I refuse to pay for a like a moving van, or that's you know you have to be economical. In these times. And I just use my Toyota Tercel, and that's a lot of. That's a lot of round trips to all that T P out. That's a small car. Imagine like you could probably old only six packages Max a well more maybe eight. That's if you're not practical in using all the negative space in the car. I used the foot area near the gas pedal in the break. Oh. That's the one place I wouldn't put it myself well. That's maybe why I'm a professional journalist. For the Rancho Palos Verdes local news affiliate I certainly don't see the connection between that and journalism, but I do want to clarify and contextualized the hoarding. We're talking about because there is seemingly mouse three distinct types. One is where you keep everything you have. We see the show hoarders where basically the? Newspapers from last fifty years plus every like fast food container. That's other houses. Look! Yes, we're also talking about. A pandemic wording is another type of hoarding where? When there's a pandemic or a crisis people go out and buy you now. Twenty dish soaps and whatnot, and they intend to use them, and then there's the hoarding where people by maybe a Palette of toilet paper because they know, they can then resell it and price gouge. Right which one of these for you specifically are? We Really pinning down, or is it all three? Well? You know I think. I you Joe I liked I like that breakdown. I liked that list I a little inaccurate. Because for me, it wasn't so it wasn't so much. Panic I wouldn't call it panic. I'd call it sheer unmitigated terror..

"Episode fifty nine and he said he actually said he said that's one of the most important works of art ever made its myself portrait portrait and said that piece was so important to me when I made it. I'm so glad that you have that and I said yes. You know people people love of it and I explained them. They see that the baser on tie clip and I always point out. Make sure they look behind the tie at sack with the brass balls easily. Go wait a SEC. Brass balls so there's a titanium it you come away from an experienced appreciation of process in the appreciation of personality. That's behind the work and then network is in your collection and is a reminder of that experience and that which leads me to another question that I've often hurt and that is why collect there's an evolving answer to that question When we started I told you about about how it started? In the beginning we had walls. We love our we wanted. Surround ourselves with our And we wanted to live with the art and in the beginning and in the end that is still the driving force. Living with the art I think is still that that's is what I learned one of the most important lessons I learned from my dad. Living with the art is I think probably the most important aspect of why we collect. Now things have changed over the years when we started. I told you we started slow. Hello we started small. We started building our confidence and and started looking looking further afar for our But once the collection got to a point where okay we I don't really need. I mean way beyond what we need. As far as our collection were way beyond what we have room for storage must be. Ah Yeah I've been lucky that I have had stories in the past. I have a little bit of storage now but I've been. I've been lucky enough that AH between my house and my corporate office. I've been able to almost everything almost like ninety. Plus percent of our collections actually Out on display. And so that's been good but you get to a point where you start to question. Why are we still buying are well? There's a couple of there's a couple of answers. I don't know what the what the best answer is to that. But but the answers for us that you know number one. The collection the collection has a life of its own. And I sort of feel that if we stop if we stop buying are we stopped looking for the next emerging artists which are not. I don't look at that the same way that I did twenty years ago because I don't feel like a half to buy pre emerging MHM RS before when they're they just walked out of school at their MFA. I'm okay not being in the first round of buyers that that is buying that that that type of work But you know the collection it's taken on a life of its own and and if you don't feed it I WANNA say it. It's GonNa die but it could become stale and so I feel like from from that perspective That's been one of the driving forces to why we're still buying art. But I think I think maybe more importantly it's we've reached a point now where we're not just collecting were collection building and to what end and is the complicated answer. Because we don't know exactly what the future of the collection is but I guess in the back of my mind. I'd like to think that at least some portion of collection is gonNA WANNA end up in a place like the high museum and and that we are collecting a little differently than the way Eichel rooks. Six is being oh is able to collect at at the high museum and using him curator for contemporary art at the High Museum for all your listeners. Listeners know that and in high museum even know it's the eight hundred pound gorilla art institution in the city. It has limitations. Michael is Hamstrung from time to time after time on what he's able to acquire for his department and so. I really believe that that the collecting were doing is gonNA fill Komo potentially fill a void at the high museum. Someday if that's what we decide to do with the collection I don't I don't know that will ever our collection will ever reach the point where it'll be one of these types of collections that will justify its own building. My favorite copy conversation view is always you know whether it's we Lindor Margulis. Yeah you know when you start talking about the super collectors. Electors down in Miami that we all know and love and I know you guys have had experiences with Mardi Mardi lease a great guy. It's very interesting. I met Marty my dad my dad a new Marty and my dad introduced me to them and and I have since now you know sorta have my own kind of you know I. I don't even call it a relationship relationship with Marnie but I've been to his CONDO and key Biscayne few times. It's the most incredible condominium filled with art you will ever set foot in Obviously got his his warehouse building In Miami and he's got an incredible collection and then and then you've got daily cruise. The rebel collection is over seven. Thousand Works of art. You know I mean it's it's just a whole different kind of thing and I don't know that I don't know if that's the path I'm going down. Could you could do it your own way. I mean you started off asking about like where do you start collecting and I immediately thought of the vogels you buy. Can you what you can afford and you sure you might want to Kooning. But you can't afford it. So what if they were getting into lake Tunnel folks like that when it's affordable but while the vogels are a whole different story. Laurie I mean they ended up with forty five hundred works of art in a one bedroom apartment. That's that's amazing. It's going to serving your you have anyone who hasn't seen that documentary. You should see it. Yes very touching it it is it is That's that's a good example of a collection. That's very specific it's it's limited by time the theme. You know what what we're what we're collecting electing but what you were saying about neglected collection. One of the challenges is okay. You make it started in direction but then if you don't continue in a May have a bit you that told me this time capsule in a bad way. Now they're collection. That's not that's a good way but there is something about it it becoming stale and I would think that one of the ways that you can combat that is through rotation and rotating works. How does how does that work? When when I think about the rebel and one of the reasons I mean I wanted to? I wanted to see the new space this time. But what are the good things. There I think of having the new space is that they were forced to move some things around. Yeah well they did and it and this year's presentation was was very different from what what they've done in the past you know and they're building. It seemed like every year. We'd go down to Miami and they would put on a show and they would pick you know typical year. They might pay the five artists that they gave so low rooms. Do and then some of the stuff like that. Katie Nolan. Beer Cam piece is never going to go anywhere. Yeah right yeah. Whatever reasons they they love that so much that that's always going to be out on display got a couple of others that are always on display? That don't sit so well with Wife yes some of them. I don't I don't need to see again but this year it felt felt more like going to a museum to a legit museum like There were no necessarily not that. They didn't have multiple works out by the same artist but it it just the spaces is there some giant rooms with huge huge ceilings. And you just don't understand you can't really grasp the scale of some of the work. They have We walk into this one room. And how big the room is Are How many thousands of square feet.

"Okay. So I guess we can stipend to it pretty much. I'm starting with our first topic just covering, what self care is the strictly definitions. And what those exactly look like at least two us, and we can sort off with mental and emotional self care. Basically mental self-care is defined as connecting with your or mental health care star says stimulating your mind in your intellect. Worries emotional, self care is connecting with your emotional self in doing the work is in checking in with yourself when need be. So what is that? Exactly. Look like teeth team your favorite methods. Wow. So for me, mental care, definitely, is checking out versus checking in with emotional, meaning self care checking out of my responsibility, and another awful. But I look at it like. Not thinking about work. Not thinking about a selfish as that sounds and not thinking about my responsibilities at home. Honestly, just focusing on my self put myself in a mental state where I'm either doing something to nourish my, my mental state. Whether it's reading book, listen to book, whether it's Netflix binge, ma-ma, self just not thinking, not listen tainting political as much as I love in PR shut down, and for me, also emotional, self care is the check in, in part like you mentioned. So in my life, it would definitely come in the form of since I've haven't a good crisis. You know, live journals exists them were so journaling. You know this taking stock of where I am, like actually thinking about how feeling at the moment or how I felt that we go through THAAD whole clan to better express myself next. I'm angry. It's something or somebody or if I thought little depress Stanley, why Bill depressed by could do to white that depression like to work through that depression, if I dealt with exactly, let's say had really crazy meeting where I had no idea of the hell I was talking about how and exiled he kick my ass that week, usually try to mentally sit there and think, okay, what causes he was because I, I was in care of, you know, educate for subject. I was talking about what side you too. Avoid bags. Now I won't say what works three things. -iety for me. It's just, you know, he's checking informational checking out for mental. How high go about my business. That's perfect time it you. Well, wow, that actually I kind of changes for me, depending on, like, what my needs are what I tend to do, as daily for myself or my emotional, and mental self-care is I kind of tried to Kenneth shape, my to do list based on like my emotional needs physical needs in everything. So they're all equally balanced like I have like a four space, graph that I do like literally wants base for body when space four mind one space for work in one space for spaces in cleaning and things like that on inside. His try to make sure that my mind. Sexiness balances needs to be, especially when I do have times of exiled or something like that. Or if I need to be physical working out. I'm doing my definitely working out. I go crazy mail gets work at though. Yeah, like it's definitely physical, emotional mental thing for me. It puts me in a place where I have to be present. And so I feel afterwards like I can actually I I think just reassesses situation away. I wasn't able to before that, you know, when I'm feeling kind of clouded mentally and yeah. Just you said, the journaling is a big thing poetry freeze Bank, and I guess spiritually lake things involving like ritual or just things were that kinda helped me visually manifest, or even man's, but visually, see my intention and kind of work through things that way in resting, when I need to or you know, disea- said net flicks is relaxing to myself naming at zoos awake. God, that's the best way. Hey, to like just cool down after a rough day. Yeah. Really have not pleasures live just watching, how with murder. Really? I know it sounds like I love you like why watch Mirvish three death? I don't know what the dusty Nestle. Those people I always get very into very inquisitive, even though you know, it's up the happen that shows actually been pretty pretty good so far just need season three days like my winding down. Let me sometimes a lot quietness so that is what music or want, like chaotic shit to watch like my life that, that or is it would watch. I'll like go crazy everything fall apart for them like damn, which that called shot in Florida. Actually, that's German apparently happiness for the miss, or happiness from the misfortune of others. Yes. It's like maybe like, well, my life, isn't that badly that guy like he's just I barely make like watching in of guy yard selling watching quarter. Sometimes it's like it's like, I don't know what it does to your services, Mexico. Good. And it's because of like, oh my life is better than yours is kinda like I like horrors, because I like the ones that have a happy resolution at the end not to just saw. 'cause it's like I like to watch someone else have their life, just cleaned out. And people motionlessly go through in cement, is a mental of disease, but just have like watching it process of someone having, like the craziest situations like pooping in bags and piling up for years, you know, hoarding animals, which really gets me, but it's just kind of like watching someone whose life is, is Louie after were spy themselves, usually, and seeing that they can overcome that, and it's just. Like, well, you know. This she Cleo. I. How I feel why what is your excuses? You have no excuse whatsoever. Damn that's beautiful. Like even thought about that. Like how that can kinda be cathartic for you looking at that so visually cleaning, their lives up just McLean was less. So let me I dec- true crime like literally like dismissed documentaries like I just finished the act from who and all it's so good. Oh and freaks my heart for the girl and the one thing, I don't like about that show. And we can just talk about how I felt like it kind of sympathized with the one who helped her carry out the murder her boyfriend, while demonizing, her saying, gene is innocent, as everyone else is saying, basically thinker, and I'm like, oh, yeah, because this woman wasn't, you know, literally abused from her parent. Right. And taught yet you can't walk you. Can't do all these things that other kids are doing can't even talk to these kids. Oh, yeah. You need to have a feeding tube in your stomach. When you actually donate. Oh, yeah. And use have Kimia. Oh, yeah in. You're not even born in the year. That yes, she literally told her she was five years under than she actually. I learned mishit by that ultra stories reality this crazy. Yeah. So just been diving into the documentary after that from each called mommy's dead. Mommy dead. Mommy, deers or something. I mean. Well, go off to topic all conversations have about how we. As a Siamese always dramatize other people's crazy ass stories, like hoarders of how this, actually, like houses actually affect the family, not worse because that's more reality. But these kinds of shows they're like true crime. I mean, actual family that went oh yeah. They're pissed about the show. It's crazy documentary. But the show yeah. No, I'd never seen the show by have. Listen respond is kind of that. Let the time is kinda like help sequel in LA can get gets about diving into our darkest not desires, but anyway. Left. Looks gestures are like, don't even get me started like binding Dom thing. Anyway. Lost fifteen minutes every app is headed. Episode on Netflix on that show. I'm sure yeah. But have our get? Anyway, go mix just ourselves care, another aspect of self care. That's not just emotional and mental, which kind of ties to each other is just physical practical, self care. You know, like definition for physical, south Caribe, like tasked you complete to fill core aspects of light and prevent future. Stressful situations, visibility activities in practices improve overall physical health, so, like you're touching on exercising where some somethings for you that you consider personal practical physical self care. Personal practices quotes. So I feel like for me taking breaks is a big one because a lot of times, I just ignore my body. I'm like, I know about her. I know my body's literally telling me to stop one of doing right now in reassesses situation, but any to get this work done now. And so a lot of times I push my lunch break up until two o'clock. I like don't take any breaks in just kind of lake tunnel vision on whatever I wanna get done or just my entire to do list. But now learning to say, hey, just like take a ten minute walk, you know, that does wonder just being out in nature, whenever I'm even when I'm stressed or when I'm not is amazing for me, and yet just taking breaks and also just another one. Big thing for me is also seeing my doctor when I need to not just saying, oh, it's fine. So big deal in, you know, just. You know, making sure everything's good whenever I need to you, though. Well, three physical, I definitely harp onto exercising. I think that is my response to having a good regimen. Visit with myself stuff out. I know people like to talk about, like die dieting all the time, and to me, it's just making sure I give myself quality things that body. And yeah, I mean I like it too. I don't take less Frakes. I e it dust. I sacrifice that time figure physically, whether it's sleeping enough or m you know, are stressed out about work. It's just, you know, I'll listen to your body, I've really need to get out for my desk, but walking because I'm stuck to the computer try to get shit on, because, you know, we got jobs to keep in, like, we have to work harder to meet Yusuf's to be able to prove ourselves. We still have a job. And practical is, you know, I don't know like that. Getting a working out my lunch. To having my phone off not always looking at my phone just practical things like making my thing is I'm a big Harper on creating rituals of all kinds. I'm not the best at meditating but meditation vices comes in the farm up making the time to clean soclean. Like, you know, my house like clean clean my house on feet my animals cleaned the clean the litter rods. Whatever the case may be like, just, you know, a ritual like Camden takes time to wash phase put mask on do my sister. Kind of physical impractical rituals. Either leave the best in, you can do for yourself is create ritual. Because the times, I don't practice might rituals are times of extreme chaos for me where I feel like I'm almost out of breath, has time to eat things, you know, so have to start my day by listing lists like a list thirty thing for half to do the next day, and I had to stop myself in, I personally believe in the power three. So I, I think what would help anyone is to create three things you wanna accomplish that day in I do as if business.

"Larger educational good because art flows between institutions are has to be some sort of network to make it happen to make it happen correctly and safely, and so people don't lose money because the cost fell over and broke, right? Like the amount of insurance that everybody has to it. Good causes harm. Has that ever happened to you in the industry there any examples of art that was severely damaged in transit? Yeah. I mean, it must it has to happen happen. You don't want it to happen? Obviously, try our jobs. Try everything we can to make sure things don't happen. But you know, like a big part of what you do or from. My fantasy point is like when we loan something or someone loans to us one of the first things that happens to it is it so you get it into your museum. You let it sit for twenty four hours in climate to kind of get acclimated to the temperature and humidity of the new space that it's in the new take it out of its crate, and you stare at it for like an hour and make sure nothing changed since the last time somebody saw it. And so the registers take these meticulous note. Let's take a tiny flashlight, and like scan everything and and make sure nothing happened because there's so much liability. Yeah. Writing on like did anything happen like nothing can change. That's more tedious part of it. He's like sitting there, and you're checking and you're like looking at every single corner. And when I mean like are you looking for like did a bit of pink scratched or like, drip Bor in transit? You're looking for stuff that could happen from it slowly timely just shaking for however long trip was because it's on a plane on a truck like there's so you're thinking about things getting dislodged or shifted maybe some surface. That's like a tricky. Like an aggregate surface. You're you wanna make sure nothing's fallen off. So you're looking for all those little things. And then you're also making a document that says this is how it entered the museum and our goal is to have a leave the museum in exactly the same shape. So there's lots of things that can happen during the course of being on view like we have thousands and thousands of visitors. Day that are in these spaces Chet. Gold security manager was telling me about how viewers logic just touched the art like at relate will go in pot the painting. They don't even believe it's the real thing. And then that's another part of what we do during the installation process is we walk around the galleries after it's done, and we're kind of like, all right? That thing needs a little extra protection. We're gonna put something in front of it that should have a platform a little bigger, you know, things that keep the artwork at arm's length as much as we can without you know, mucking up the visual. How do you make that call? Well, I mean, it's usually it's a kind of group decision sometimes lenders specify I want a security officer standing next to my skull. My sculpture twenty four hours a day, or I want stanchions or I want this. I want that a lot of artists don't want any of that stuff because detracts from the aesthetic it's not part of the work. And so they usually it's usually a a little bit of a push pull between. Art, handling and registrar and conservation usually on the side of let's try to make sure something bad doesn't happen. And the curator's artists kind of always want everything to look amazing all the time. But we know things happen bad things happen, so pathetically. We would put every single thing in giant plex box. About about having like just a tiny lake tunnel that people can walk through, and maybe they have to let cross their arms. They can't like actually deviate from this very tight path because it's so nerve wracking. So that's a tension though. The you're you guys are always on the side of safety, partly because you guys you're responsible for them getting it back to whoever owned it original.

"San Francisco and KiKi I north Highland Sacramento at seven thirty. This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. That's get back to my interview with Ben Stiller yesterday. He was nominated for a directors guild award for his work, directing the seven part Showtime series escape at Dan Amora. It's based on a true story to inmates who escaped from a maximum security prison in upstate New York in two thousand fifteen both inmates. Richard Matt played by Benicio del Toro and David sweat played by Paul deneau worked at the prison tailor shop, we're prison. Uniforms were made they convinced the civilian employees who ran the shop Joyce telling Mitchell played by Patricia Arquette to get them the tools, they used to dig through the basement walls and steam pipe of the old prison to escape. We've been talking about the crime that landed one of the two escapees in prison. David sweat. Let's talk about the crime that landed the other escapee in prison. For murder, and that's Richard Matt who's played by Venetia del Toro in the series. And oh man talk about gruesome. Yeah. He he killed his former boss he came to the boss's house kind of forced his way in right? Asks for all you weren't you take it from here. Yeah. Yeah. He was his boss was older in his seventies. And he had somehow heard that he had what he says in. It's in the police reports he said that he'd heard that he had ten thousand dollar stacks. He kept on saying these he has he has these ten thousand dollar stacks. And he's going to try to get them from him. And he ended up with a friend of his. Tying him up putting them in the trunk of his car and driving around for twenty four hours and basically torturing him and then eventually killing him and dumping him by lake tunnel. Wanda up near buffalo and then. I think it's actually in buffalo, and then he came back days later and severed the body after it had basically been frozen out there and then through the body parts out into the lake and hit famine. Yeah. That was his crime. I mean that is really. Yeah. I mean, I think Richard Matt was really much more of a cold blooded killer. It feels like when you read about what he did. And versus what David sweats impulse killing. It feels like that. What was that? What that was. But he had you know, then he killed somebody else in Mexico. Richard dramatic. Was in a Mexican jail for eight or nine years, and then got extradited back for this crime wedding before he went to jail for the for the murder, so he career killer in criminal. I have to confess I had trouble watching the scenes of the murder and torture. So I'd like to know how far you wanted to go with it. Because you really I I know you really want to convey the horror of this crime, the brutality of this person who you might have had some sympathy for in previous episodes because you don't show the mod murders till the end of the series. So you had a lot of decisions to make about how how detailed to show the murder and the torture. Yeah. I mean, it's a sort of a. A judgment call in terms of what is too much, and I do I know there's certain people who. I would show it to when we were in the editing process who felt that they couldn't watch certain parts of and thought it was too much. I had to kind of go off my own subjective feeling about what was important to to see about what these guys did. But that's always that's always a came down more as we were editing. It got less and less in terms of what we saw, but it's very brutal. And I mean, the intention behind it was hopefully as an audience, you are jarred because you've it's what we were talking about earlier developed this sort of. I dunno impression of who. These guys are based on who they been for the last, you know, five hours of the series who are just guys in prison trying to get out which is what you're experience would be a van if you met him the way I met David sweat is a guy just sitting there across me. But the reality is that they did these brutal crime. So that's why. I felt it was important to have it be shocking and brutal as a viewer after sort of being lulled into the reality of of who they were now. Something I kept wondering watching escape it down more like these guys ever watch prison break movie like no one it never works out. Like, even if you escape lake your shot or you're brought back to prison it never works. Like, would you think? Well, no, I mean, I didn't think I would. Here's what I mean for me going into that prison and spending a very little amount of time in that prison. The first thing I thought about was getting out. I was like I was so happy to leave at after a while. It was fascinating. Or even when we were shooting at the end of the day. I was I felt so fortunate to leave. So I it doesn't shock me that anybody in their would want to get out, even if you knew that it was the odds were against you. I mean, I think you have to have a certain type of personality to actually say I'm going to go for this. Because the, you know, the flip side is if you get caught, you know, you're in worship. But these these guys were aware of Shawshank, Redemption, they actually even made a joke when they got to the outer wall where sweat saw the wall. And he said, you know, like Shawshank Redemption is gonna take us. It took them twenty years in like Matt says it's gonna take us ten or something, and we actually had that dialogue in the show, and I took it out because it just seemed to self referential, but that actually that. But sweat says that that interaction happens. I think they they definitely knew about you know, I mean, they they knew. You know, movies and pop culture and all that. But I think they had a desire to to really get out of that place. And they did, you know, the other thing is that sweat. Did do this dryer on the night before when he finally cut through the pipe on the other side of the wall and got out and he got to the manhole cover at about three thirty or something in the morning. I guess it was Friday night before Thursday night before because he left on a Friday night, but he could have left without Matt. And he didn't. And when I asked him he said that they just had this plan because till he was going to meet them. But he said if if if he hadn't have waited if you had left he could just stolen a motorcycle, and he probably would have gotten very far, and he could he could easily have gotten to Canada in the middle of the night and gone through. And it would have been much tougher to find him. So one of the ways they escaped is that David sweat found this like giant hot water pipe that was turned off for the summer. He cut a hole in that crawled out out of that it led to a manhole cover that he was able to open, and that's what alternately lead them to escape. There were a lot of steps along the way. But did you literally shoot in that pipe? Well, we shot in a pipe. We shot in eighteen inch pipe, which is what they were in. It wasn't that pipe, but we basically recreated the the the set based on the actual dimensions of the of the area that they were where they got that. They basically he went down through that catwalk got down into the bowels of the prison and found his way underneath all the buildings to the outer wall. The base of the outer wall of the prison, and they're in that going into that outer wall was steam pipe that was coming from the power plant that was about about a thousand feet away from the prison. So he knew that that steam pipe led to the power plant. But this wall was in the way, and it was a seven foot thick wall. So. That that we recreated that that pipe in that area where the outer wall was where he did all the cutting. And then we found. We found locations we've found a prison in Pittsburgh that was about one hundred and fifty years old even older than Clinton, and we shot in the actual underground area that prison and we also shot in waste treatment facility tunnels in Yonkers New York. And then we also built and built pipes actions. Also. So it was a combination of all those my guest has been Stiller.

I had to kind of go off my own subjective. Feeling about. What was important to to see about what these guys did? But that's always that's always a came down more as we were editing. It got less and less in terms of what we saw, but it's very brutal. And I mean the intention behind it was. Hopefully as an audience, you, you know, are jarred because you've. It's what we were talking about earlier developed this sort of. I dunno impression of who. These guys are based on who they been for the last, you know, five hours of the series who are just guys in prison trying to get out which is what you're experience would be a them. If you Madam the way, I met David sweat is a guy just sitting there across me. But the reality is that they did these brutal crime. So that's why I felt it was important to have it be shocking and brutal as a viewer after sort of being lulled into the reality of who they were now. Something I kept wondering watching escape it down more like these guys ever watch prison break movie like no one it never works out. Like, even if you skate lake your shot or you're brought back to prison it never works. Like, could you think about that? Well, no, I mean, I didn't think I would. Here's what I mean for me going into that prison and spending a very little amount of time in that prison. The first thing I thought about was getting out. I'd like I was so happy to leave after a while. It was fascinating. Or even when we were shooting at the end of the day. I was I felt so fortunate to leave. So I it doesn't shock me that anybody in their would want to get out, even if you knew that it was the odds were against you. I mean, I think you have to have a certain type of personality to actually say I'm gonna go for this. Because the, you know, the flip side is if you get caught, you know, you're in worship. But these these guys were aware of Shawshank, Redemption, they actually even made a joke when they got to the outer wall where sweat saw the wall. And he said, you know, this is like Shawshank Redemption is gonna take us took them twenty years and like Matt's. It's gonna take us ten or something. And we actually had that dialogue in the show, and I took it out because it just seemed to self referential, but that actually that. But sweat says that that interaction happens. I think they they definitely knew about, you know, I mean, they they knew you know, movies and pop culture and all that. But I think they just had a desire to to really get out of that place. And they did, you know, the other thing is that sweated do this dryer on the night before when he finally cut through the pipe on the other side of the wall and got out and he got to the manhole cover at about three thirty or something in the morning on. I guess it was Friday night before Thursday night before because he left on a Friday night, but he could have left without Matt. And he didn't. And when I asked him he said that they just had this plan because till he was going to meet them. But he said if if if he had waited if you had left he could just stolen a motorcycle, and he probably would have gotten very far, and he could he could easily have gotten to Canada in the middle of the night and gone through. And it would have been much tougher to find him. So one of the ways they escaped is that David sweat found this like giant hot water pipe that was turned off for the summer. He cut a hole in that crawled out out of that it led to a manhole cover that he was able to open, and that's what ultimately led them to escape. There were a lot of steps along the way. But did you literally shoot in that pipe? What was shot in a pipe? We shot in eighteen inch pipe, which is what they were in. It wasn't that pipe, but we basically recreated the the the set based on the actual dimensions of the of the area that they were where they got to that. They basically he went down through that catwalk got down into the bowels of the prison and found his way underneath all the buildings to the outer wall. The base of the outer wall of the prison, and they're in that going into that outer wall was esteem pipe that was coming from the power plant that was about I don't know about a thousand feet away from the prison. So he knew that steam pipe led to the power plant. But this wall was in the way, and it was a seven foot thick wall. So. That that we recreated that that pipe in that area where the outer wall was where he did all the cutting. And then we found. We found locations we've found a prison in Pittsburgh that was about one hundred and fifty years old even older than Clinton, and we shot in the actual underground area of that prison, and we also shot in waste treatment facility tunnels in Yonkers New York. And then we also built and built pipe sections. Also. So it was a combination of all those my guest is Ben Stiller. He was just nominated for a directors guild award for directing the seven part Showtime series escape at then Amora. We'll talk more after a break. This is fresh air.
