"To. The Renaissance, Oh Italy, how you have suffered through the darkness of the Middle Ages, and now here we are standing on the cusp of a new era where we will turn our minds to nature. Humans, and the world striving to understand how it all works, congratulations to us all. We've made it. This speech is not even remotely real though it was very well delivered. Thank you very much money, but it is easy to mistake this sentiment as something that people at the time might have actually felt. Most likely no one at the time realized that a new era, the renaissance had begun in the year fourteen hundred it's not like a giant switch flipped flooding the so called dark, ages with the bright light of the renaissance like US folks were just living their lives day to day. Most people will probably never even realized that the world was changing in such tremendous ways. It took historians to do that our story centers around Italy which in the early eighteen hundreds became the center of the renaissant. which radiated to the world the term renaissance refers to a time period that brought a new focus on philosophy and the arts sciences, understanding of the world and the mathematics behind it, and also a humans place in it. All like all other times it was also a period filled with wars and conflict because you know people right but it was a period of great advancement and achievement. Some of the greatest the world has ever known. The most famous and probably most important figure from this time and place was a left handed polymath who is unmarried and socially mismatched parents didn't even pay for him to be educated. Luckily for him and for the rest of us, he was really smart and he worked hard to keep getting smarter. No one could argue about his genius, His name was Leonardo Da Vinci. As. A young boy without the means for an Education Leonardo took advantage of the apprentice system in Italy, his natural ability with art and strong grasp of geometry and math, which she somehow learned without ever actually going to school earned him a spot as an apprentice to an artist in Florence named Ferruccio. Broke Yo is a leading painter and sculptor an his workshop near the Arno River Leonardo rose from sweeping the floors and mixing paints to working side by side with his master. It was not uncommon for an apprentice to handle much of the actual painting in a workshop and Leonardo was no different much of the painted onto canvases signed by Rubio was actually put there by Leonardo in fourteen seventy two at only twenty years of age Davinci officially became a master himself. This meant he could accept commissions for his own work which he did this how you made money. But he also found patronage or support from powerful political leaders. He moved to Milan to work under the Duke of Milan a man named sports. He originally got sports as attention by making him a lute from a horse go and silver. Which is pretty Nedal for being honest. This horse had instrument must have worked because sports decided to pay him a bunch of money. For Seventeen years in Milan, he made statues designed architectural features, created models and drawings. The even painted the masterpiece the last supper on the wall of the Monastery of Santa Maria. Della GRADS E. In addition to all of this, he was learning about the anatomy of living creatures, including people. Of course, do this he had to dissect cadavers or dead bodies? And to get these, he had to dig them up when no one was looking. Just pretty gross, but people learned a lot from his willingness to get his hands dirty. Honestly he was kind of a Rockstar people wanted to hire him for everything and he honestly left a lot of jobs unfinished because more. We're always coming his way. But when he did finish something, people would rush to see it and flocks like we might do for a concert or a Broadway show today. As. If this wasn't enough he was also designing some of the most incredible technology. The world has ever seen. Remember he was a polymath an expert at many thanks. Most of his designs were never actually built like a helicopter and a tank, a diving suit and a super mega gigantic crossbow. These just existed as detailed drawings in his many notebooks filled with a never ending flow of ideas.

Harry & Meghan Called Whiny Brats
"Hey guys happy Monday and welcome to daily pop. I mean a- Parker joined by so my favorite. Silvester Aunt Victor Cruz A. You know we are going to go in this morning. Because someone is calling, Harry and Meghan tone death, whiny Brat S-. That person of course is Pierce Morgan who else pierce like the rest of US got a first look at the new book about the royals called finding freedom. It's a very personal and intimate look at their lives, and in today's Daily Mail Pierces the book. Confirms Up There Rawls, most that they are the world's most tone-deaf, hypocritical, narcissistic, deluded whiny Brat long to say. Do you guys agree with his assessment? Not even close not even close when you look at Harry and Meghan. You have to understand this okay. The royal family didn't work I. Think I think Harry First of all was just. He's a person that likes to spread his wings. He likes to do what he wants to do. And it just so happens that he found a partner that is rotten with him and wants to do the things he wants to do so look. They separated from the Royal Family I. Get it, but they still got to bring in the coin. So of course they're going to drop a book. Of course, it's going to be things about their their intimate parts of their life. That's going to be in the book. It has to sell copies, but do I think they're whining brats, because they're kind of letting people in into their loz little bit absolutely not coming from someone who has a New York Times bestselling book myself. You can go pick it up at Barnes and noble. You can. This is what you have to do to. You gotta give people a little bit of something personal so that they can go in and buy your book. That's what this is all about well I. I brought I bought. Cruise Control Victor and there was nothing personal in it, okay? We'll let me just. A REP from hearing. Megan told us that they did not contribute to the book. So this is not fair book. This is an author that claims that they spoke to over one hundred sources, which is how they got such personal information, so the book is about them, but they didn't write it. The sources gave them all the information from today's Arthur. First of all. Nina, you know as well as I. Know working in this business. We know that every celebrity has a few henchmen. You know my name on it I. Don't want to get my hands dirty, but wouldn't it be crazy if you're over? At TMZ found out about this personal detail. Look the thing is I do ride for Megan Harry? Understand everything that's going on with them, and I feel bad for them. However, the one thing that was missing in this book was them taking accountability for at least one thing. That's the only problem I have with. This I could see where they felt like they were trapped. I could see where they felt like they had been turned against, but they're just not taking accountability for anything at all. It's not their book. It's not their book. How do they take accountability for something? They didn't right. Come on, come on. Kirk five written. Book. Does like her five germ ability. If you decide to write something about my life, I don't have to take accountability for anything. It's not my book. You wrote it. But it's there. It's still going to come out and it's still going to be things in there that are probably true and depending on what those are. They should probably own up to a couple of those, and it's not anything wrong or anything bad about them. They're living their own lives right now. They're doing what they wanted to drink, so I wouldn't mind owning up to one. Maybe two of those things that are being said is. Is a lot because they don't want to go. This traditional route and I also think that there is a huge disconnect with how it relates to a lot of this because she's American because she's a celebrity from America and she had a different way of life, and also because she's a black woman, and I feel like there's been a lot of insensitivity to hurt that regard for how she's been treated in the press the way. Way that she's been treated compared to everybody else has been completely different because they didn't have to deal with a lot of the same type of headlines that she did. She felt very triggered by the way that she was treated by a lot of the press in Britain, because of the fact that a lot of it was race baiting a lot of it was. You know saying things that were really offensive to her, so of course. Course she's very defensive when she's dealing with that. And then also the fact that she was very popular coming over there, and so they were saying that she was kind of taking over for him, because she she was more popular than K., and that's to be expected so a lot of it, not that it's not her fault, but it's like look if my light is shining bright and this overshadowing. You said you'll came up, don't. Know Tena. Not that Nina I totally get it at the same time. If you're walking into institution that's been built for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years. Sometimes, you gotta learn the ropes before you start stepping out before you get crazy now. Not saying what she did was wrong I just would have played my game a little bit slower. I would follow. Call before jumping ship and surprising and enrolling up on the que-, being like hey, all we hear from Canada. Talked about Leonardo's. Popularity grew like that. It's not her fault that the attention came to her the way it did when she got there. It wasn't her fault, and it's not that she linked up with Harry who was riding with her, and it was like you know what we're doing this on our own less rocker

Hollywood's Black List
"Every year, fifty thousand movie scripts Tele plays other pieces of writer Lee stuff get registered with the Writers Guild of America fifty thousand most of which sucks, but a handful of which will become the movies that change our lives today on the show how a math! Loving movie nerd used a spreadsheet and an anonymous hotmail address to solve one of Hollywood's most fundamental problems, picking winners from a sea of garbage, and he may just have reinvented the power structure of Hollywood along the way.

A. dot com slash NPR. We're only months away from election day and every week or even every few hours. There's a new twist that could affect who will win the White House to keep up with the latest tune into the NPR. Politics podcast every to find out what happened and what it means for the election. It's two thousand and five Franklin Leonard a junior executive at Leonardo. DiCaprio's production company which sounds glamorous, but arguably he is a glorified script reader. WHO's boss's boss? Is Leonardo DiCaprio. Franklin's job is to help that boss. Find The next great movie for Leo, which means he is constantly reading movie scripts. Every junior executive lives in constant fear of the trade story that breaks about some exciting new script that they didn't know about that. Their bosses like. Like why didn't you know about this? Franklin is supposed to know about everything which is tough because there's this famous old saying in Hollywood. Nobody knows anything as in. It's really hard to know what movies are going to work. So if you do find something any piece of information that can help you gauge. What might work that information? Franklin is learning. That is Hollywood gold one of the things that drilled into your head. Is that information? Information is the most valuable thing. Yeah, and that information is to be protected and kept in house and exploitation of that information is how we in power and leverage like what little information you can manage, and then if it's kind of good, put up a wall as quickly as possible. That's exactly right. Movie scripts are a kind of information like the fundamental piece of information for a movie, and so Franklin's job is go out into the world. World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive.

"leonardo" Discussed on The Art Newspaper Weekly
"We've been rather short of good news recently on the weekend art but we begin this week with the story. That's prompted a lot of joy among art lovers the once in a Lifetime Exhibition of works by Raphael at the scooter. Rear Kitty Nali in Rome. Which only open for three days before being closed due to covid. Nineteen in March will reopen on the second of June and run for three months until the thirtieth of August. The show is the jewel in the crown of the celebrations across Europe and the US marking the five hundredth anniversary of Raphael's death age. Thirty seven famously. If perhaps inaccurately because of exhaustion caused by night of excessive sex with Margarita Lucci or laugharne arena one of his most famous portrayed. The Rome Exhibition begins with Rafael Death. Moves back in time includes works online for fifty two museums and galleries including the Louvre in Paris. The Prada Madrid a National Gallery in London National Gallery of art in Washington. Dc. And the feats he gallery in. Florence which is lent fifty works including paintings drawings and sculptures all. The museums have agreed to leave their works in Rome until the end of August. Cheering -Ly Mattioli from Coney Director of the scooter. Edict clearly said that there's a new sense of community in the museum world. Everyone is feeling the only way to get out of the crisis. Together is to al-roa in the same direction. I spoke to Hugo Chapman. The keeper of prints and drawings at the British Museum and Rafael specialist about the artist fame has somewhat unfairly been eclipsed by Leonardo and his great rival Michelangelo. He go in civilization. Kenneth Clarke says that Raphael was prima harmonize her and that made him less suitable for our current age than other renaissance painters artists. What do you make of that? Is he more suitable for our age? Now Clark have a point. I think Kenneth Clarke definitely had a point in that Rafah's extraordinary meteoric success Does not kind of accord with our sense of of how artistic careers should be the troubled Michelangelo Forever Brooding and falling out with people or the Raleigh consulate tree and mysterious genius of Leonardo. I think hold much more facination than Rafael. Who was born in court and from a very early age understood how courts and powerful men worked and SORTA work system extraordinarily successfully and then it goes died relatively young thirty seven So he didn't have the struggle that we like But having said that I still think the more one knows about Rafael one does realizes is incredible autistic mind the that underlies his amazing success. I think that's right and certainly. That's my impression from everything I read is that is that you know. He's he's one of the great polymath isn't here. I mean we think of Leonardo is a great polymath but reptile himself turned his mind. He's talents to so many different disciplines. He did although having said that. That was rene sauce where there was no training to be laissez an architect you just you just sort of to to stonemasons and and you learn how to do it I mean to some degree. He was less of a polymath in some of his contemporary. Sir I mean. Everybody was less of a polymath. Leonardo of course And he was extremely brilliant architect although very little of his architecture survives he was. He tried his hand. Poetry With I don't think great success because whether that was sort of because Lear Michelangelo was was very good poet But I think above all he was he was a great painter was certainly more than Michelangelo. Who who who did paint Barat kind of grudgingly. He was was always Michelangelos school tour. I think what well Rafael can do in paint. is still one of the most Thrilling things both in oil paint and also in FRESCA. He really is technically absolutely brilliant and concert. Turn his hand to everything and is much more sort of varied in his output. And are there are beautiful landscapes is great portraitist You know big sort of historical dramas and in a way that I think Leonardo and and and Mike Lynch Lendu really can't match. Let's talk a bit about about his origins. As you said he was born. Essentially at his father was a court painter. How much did he learned from his father? How and how quickly did he surpass him? Well of course. His father isn't around for for very long but I mean everything that we know about. Rafal is it. He's a frighteningly quick learner. He absorbed sings at an amazingly rapid rate And I'm sure you know. He took on his father's mantelet a very early age. He he kind of understood what his father's art was about and then very swiftly kind of surpass it and look for other models but I think that court training in beano which was a very sophisticated humanistic court the Rafah's Z's with mixing with a people socially much hira up up the pecking order and his ability to talk to to literary men. All of that came out of his training in being so I think it was a kind of ideal place for a future world beater to be born so he was very lucky in that respect. Obviously not so lucky that his father died and his father to be. Frank wasn't a great a great painter. He's more famous for his his poetic Kind of biographies of of artists of his time. But you know he was a perfectly. Decent Artists who Rafael would have learnt the basics of. But I didn't think Giovanni Santi even his greatest Mara would not put him amongst the Pantheon of great for Nissan's artists and that precociousness referrals was extraordinary because he was a master basically before he was in his twenties. Yes I mean he you know he's he was. I think he you know he's one of those artists who who kind of realized his amazing talented. He had this sort of searching intelligence and desire to move. I mean Beano is anybody who's been there is rather difficult place to get to even now It's not the center of anything and I think. Rafael quickly saw that If he was going to make his way He needed to leave. Be No and And then he spends time in an umbrella him improve GER which is a much bigger place on a place where he can learn more from from From from Pera Gino and others And then you know he then move onto Florence and then to Rome. He's you know he's somebody who's always interested in in looking around and saying what's the most interesting artistic trends and wanting to be there to learn from it. I mean if you Michelangelo and I can't help thinking Michelangelo. On his sort of Mount Olympus cloud wherever grey his go must be laughing himself fit to bus that poor raffles celebrations fifteen. Twenty eight of being completely over turned by Covid Because because Michelangelo Hated Rafeh with a kind of intensity that I think appropriate Jersey even in in the in the next world. Can you explain why because there's obviously complex but why did Michael android hate? Refer so much while it's I think it was based on Michelangelo. Feeding the Rafal had looked at his art and kind of stolen His style you know. He says one of his letters. Everything that Rafal highs he has for me I think is true But Michelangelo kind of addressed sees only his own art there. I mean what's as as you began said what Raff are supremely skilful at is taking taking aspects of of lots of different artists. Molding it into an individual. Very personal style. It's not all for Michelangelo for Michelangelo's particular perspective. That's the way he saw it And yes and Rafeh was tremendously successful. Rafael is ascendant in Rome. The young artists coming to Rome. And in the end. Lear the tenth combat. They're kind of in a war between the two of Florida up for these two artists. And he sends Michelangelo Back to Florence to work MEDICI projects and there is Rafael at a very young age. He is the top artists in Rome which means he's the top artists in Europe so it is an incredible success. You know we. We have very little in terms of documentation to show what. Rafael is doing behind the scenes but once suspects you that he was sort of talking to the right the right cardinal at the right time he was very good at playing politics in a way that. Michelangelo wasn't because for so he says that this is the thing about Rafa referrals. He just seems an almost like a perfect human. In sense of he's got he's got this extraordinary courtly manner you know he's he's an impeccable man. He's incredibly witty. This is good looking. He's he's witty. Yes I remember the other side. I think you can see him and I think one of one of the things that Thome Henry and Caroline Carol Platt Salsa did in the National Gallery show which was involved in was to kind of suggests that actually there's an athlete ruthless side of Rafah. He moves in and he then becomes whether it's in Arruda he sort of moves in as he does in Rome and and sort of becomes the top artists. And I kind of you know very sort of Cuckoo. Like way he's sort of comes in and you think. Oh there's poor Rafael. He's just a little sort of young provincial artists and by God. He's sued he. He's he's he's taken over all the plum commissions and he's forced you out so I mean there is. There is a ruthless as about Rafael. And I think he's the brilliant Rafal is that he sees that in order to succeed in that he has to have a really really productive and brilliant artistic studio behind him and this is the difference between him and Michelangelo. Michelangelo always surrounds himself until right to the end of his life where he changes his spots to a degree. But he's he really is so paranoid he surrounded himself by artistic nonentities because he's so why are they going to steal ideas from him? Rafael is so supremely confident of his own skills. That he hired. He's very very young. Very talented Giulio. Romano Penny Perino Varga Who are really really top rate artisan and have distinguished careers in their own right but as Rafael at the center of the artist's studio in Rome. Who is making them work And produce work in his style and he's amazingly productive whether it's cartoon designed whether it's architecture whether it's tapestries. He's he just sort of covers the whole lot and I think that sort of entrepreneurial spirit of Rafah the idea of sitting at the center of his judo being this sort of chief designer of a variety of different lines Is is very modern and I think Rafael would be. If he was alive today I would be sort of a film director at the same time is he's right here novel etc etc. He just. He was just extraordinarily creatively. Brilliant aunt and sort of understood how production worked Gonna. That's the thing is ultimately he's brilliant. He's what got him all those commissions because if I mean is is utterly extraordinary that he hasn't really done any significant public commission before he took on the standard which are one of the greatest works of all time so it seems to me that yes he could. He could have been as charming as they liked. But if he didn't back it up with this unbelievable brilliance. Then it wouldn't. It wouldn't have mattered. No I think that's very true. I mean I think the problem. Both of Leonardo and of of Michelangelo to an extent is is is the delivery breath. I mean they the ideas. They were as brilliant as as as anyone who's ever been in terms of ideas but often in the in the delivery because both in a sense quite solitary and light to kind of produce their own work Meant that their production was was quite limited That wasn't the case of Rafael. He he he learned to to get a very productive studio Producing work follow following his drawings and drawings was absolutely fundamental to Rafael. I mean and I mean for me. I mean the reason why I'm working in the British Museum. I mean sons bit kind of weird to say but it is because Rafah because when I was at university studying ruffle I find him. This is back to kind of spotty. Nineteen year old Hugo I found RAFFLE IS PAINTED. Really quite difficult to get my head. And I didn't find him very sympathetic. He seemed to perfect to idealized too so rarefied but but when Through the the the call set the then Westfield College and University College we were taken to look at joins. The Menashe met at the ash million Byron suddenly another aspect to Rafael. Came out this extraordinary mind. The way that he's pushing himself through drawing to analyze to understand how the work of Michelangelo and Leonardo much much more sophisticated than him when he comes to Florence. How he uses join to kind of what they're doing and then to kind of absorb it into his own style to me that was just a revelation is suddenly. I could see this amazing mind work. Which anybody looking at a drawing by RAFAEL CONC- Incredible creativity you he. He I mean what the difference is that Rafah then goes onto use those drawings to actually produce work software with my cleanser and Leonardo. They've produced wonderful joins but it doesn't actually materialized into a finish work whereas Rafael is absolutely bent on producing from this drawing. I will then go into painting. I'm going to produce. And that is why he so loved by patrons because on the whole if he said he was going to produce on the view heap actually did produce it So that's that's quite a killer Combo. That's one of the wonderful things isn't it?.

I can't imagine that was cairo losing them losing time with them. Due to divorce was hard enough incredibly hard very painful can imagine essentially saying goodbye to them hoping or at least you know for for most of their life so that they could have a life that i knew i couldn't give them who oh yeah.

She says <hes> a a recent example is to men said that leonardo's earliest dated drawing the arno valley from fourteen seventy three they saw elephants camels and birds. What essentially is a landscape. I commend them for their love w. nardo but said there are no elephants or other animals in the drawing. I started this image for a few minutes and i didn't see anything that remotely resembled any animal especially like an elephant for a few humanists. I was pretty sure i saw some sweet boobs. Oh hell is to finish those taught us for sure projected those girls into the image things that people do they see what they want to see. One of the more widespread leonardo theories involves the figure of the apostle. John was his vaguely feminine features in the last supper the idea here which parallels the findings of brown's <hes> robert langdon the fictional professor of somebody symbolic at harvard fictional is leonardo was depicting john but mary magdalene and the church authorities through the centuries waged a campaign to cover up this intimate relationship between jesus and mary zero reputable scholarship supports this interpretation of the last supper. You're we're gonna have some fun with this particular belief in a few minutes to really dig into this one <hes> the mona lisa has been the subject of a lot of non experts speculation hidden images in the painting have been found quote unquote by many ron piccirillo and artists in rochester new york claimed on his website that we looked at the painting upside down and followed the highlights of for portrait he was able to spot turned out to be a lion's head in a head in buffalo head. He added that quote for me. It helps to only use one. I and hand the viewer should be extremely close to the left edge of the painting good job ron. What do you get to the bottom of some shit. Nobody's time doing that very helpful very interesting.

So that is examined the painting was every possible laboratory tests and has found no letters <hes> yes all the experts louvre must be hiding something fucking knights templar the puppets tons of conspiracies revolve around the mona lisa. There are hidden messages in symbolism to speculation and mona lisa's himself for an assistant dresses woman as i said earlier animal's numbers snead himself to painting. Maybe dressed as a woman.

"Leonardo's now have super speed at at best leonardo pushes this battle right right there on that regard but a supernatural endurance as well as feats <hes> that she is accomplished in combat. This just adds up to buffy winning this fight and that is my point number three three gina. You're you're you're. You're shaking your head in agreement. Sometimes mush the most of the time you're shaking and disagreement what what's going on through your well. I think here's the thing i know buffy very well every watched it many times so i think ray got a couple of the of the finer details wrong but his his overall general point was was right like she didn't she still she did get stabbed. She was not healed but she she she did prevail. Even though she had the sabaoon she sought a broken arm but she does heal faster than average people so so his overall general point was much faster than average people. There's one point of the show. She wonders what it's like for humans to have to actually go through a healing process yeah. She's injured but she doesn't stay. She's not let me put it this wolverine but she does heal much faster than average people so his general point was correct. How durable is she. She's i don't let me rephrase the question like if she had to because i saw one episode she was fighting is is it faith faith and she she stabbed faith with their own dagger and then day and then faith gave her the biggest backhand and knocked turn down off a platform and that took her out of the fight email faith was sad and i think she needed like face blood to kind of heal herself or something or something along those chocolate yeah yeah and then face that you're not gonna have it and she's then jumped off and landed in a truck that drove off as she was so. I was like okay wait. She's durable. She'd always up with faith back and the faith backhanded her faith character much stronger than leader. Leonardo isn't gonna backhander and send her off a building one of the here's the thing so it's not an issue remember who would win matches in a death match. It could be someone you could like. We've used battlefield removal. We've gone with like 'have you've been snared. You can get trapped. There's different ways as to incapacitate somewhere. We can safely walk away when it comes to this battle. I don't see leonardo having i'm just gonna put out there. I don't even have an ability to necessarily win. Kill her. I don't impressive but that doesn't mean he can't defeat her and this is where i'm gonna go there by the way we brought up the actually i i just got the dracula's not the most powerful vampire ever depicted we did scooby doo versus <hes> michael myers a classic episode where i brought up how.

"I check this out. I know a samurai sword can swing speed of one hundred miles per hour by a well trained human. The ninja ninja sword that leonardo has actually lighter than a samurai sword okay so don't ask me it it the exactly but is shorter and it can be sweating slider so oh if that can be powered by regular human who's well trained. Leonardo probably swain at least twice as fast. So how hard would it be for him to hit. Buffy swing between the thing the sorts twice speed of <hes> well trained human while also possessing way more power as well so even with buffy enhanced durability. She's gonna please please be cut and damaged by leonardo and probably outfought because of his speed. That's my point number two and i mean partially well argued on your part. I like the fact that you actually a for the first time in a long time actually brought some real feats an actual examples of your work instead of just making things up having a pure conjecture so i'd like to say you're growing and james. I really appreciate it. Just kiss already talking. No one wants to see that let's talk about. Let's talk about your calf. It's not a visual medium eighty among describes the kiss you described as being having a speed on a different level than buffy and to that i agree. It's a much lower level of speed compared to buffy. It is a a different level. Buffy is described through all of the guides and all of the media that i've been using as having superhuman speed as having definitely above peak human human definitely to a level of superhuman speed and i've got some examples of point number three to back that up leonardo and the other ninja turtles are described having elite olympic level speed strength endurance agility etc so if you have one character who has olympic level a human size level of powers and you have somebody who who has a super level of powers. We've encouraged this in a battle before we've incurred this. You have to give it to the person who has the superpower so the fact that you think that leonardo is faster than buffy when i've got some examples right here that your examples are adorable and don't get me wrong but buffy does that before breakfast generally early on most days. I've got to ask you so where where did you because there's different listings of strength levels levels and all that which which version of teenage turtles are you referring to when you say olympic level because the w versions that are clearly superhuman well since you're using all the different level. I am not the name using your example. I'm using the i._d. W current innovation and i can look up example from that but i would just say much like the way facts working james when a hip you to something right now. When someone tells you a fact sir you often remember the fact but not the source and this is how the fake news purveyors of the world thrive through the human brain is the fact that people remember. Oh i do remember x y i in z. I don't remember where i heard it from whether or not they are reputable what i would say is i looked on some guides that chronicle characters that i looked powers abilities and what have you through the magic logic the internet and the big guy that i had that laid out all of the different like how they would rate the different abilities referred to the ninja turtles having olympic caliber feats but i would say right now that's great. We can even talk about if you think that that's where leonardo is. I'll have examples important number. Three of how buffy is so much more than that all right so we'll agree to disagree which means i'm correct gino..

"He doesn't need to whip him around twice. Gill they're very light especially for him because he i also has super strength and super speed super agility so when it comes to counter hate to say it i really hate to say it but in terms of pure fighting skill the edge slightly goes to leonardo ardo. That's my point number one well. If you hate to say it so much. Don't say it especially when it's not true just like it is not a couple of things to say about here. You know i love. The james starts out and he says well. I'm a man of principle of honor. I'm only going to use the i._d. W version of leonardo and then immediately he's talking about an animated movie crossover with batman. It did not take place in the i._t. Double uterus incorrect did i know there is a batman crossover event latino as an animated movie that was actually based off the comic book series. I i just <hes> let me check if batman i w character no he's not. He's a dc character. So what are we even talking about this this is this is the nonsense inside his race so there's actually comic books with end leonardo fighting. Let's talk about since we're apparently as i as i knew you would apparently talking about all the different versions of leonardo. Let's talk about all the different versions of leonardo. Did you know that in other fights with leonardo he lost a one on one battle with rafael who is using size size size versus swords and he defeated leonardo any roughed him up real good and threw him out a window. Okay when dealing with the foot clan he is often defeated by small numbers of the foot clan three three four of these special throwaway ninja we talked about i._d. W towards talking about leonardo the image version of leonardo since you're talking about batman the europeans are reasonably in ardo got his hand cut off. He's so proficient in battle. He fought guy who cut off his hand but in the michael bay version they gave him and hideous muscles they did and they all of the media's facial expressions that were really like awkward kidnapped and defeated by a handful of foot clan members taken back to their base where he was brainwashed into becoming the defacto leader of the foot clan and turned evil because you talk about how spiritual he is apparently he's not spiritual enough because because through a little bit of light brainwashing they're able to turn him evil so as far as i'm so happy to goes. This is the w version the version you claim to be arguing. This guy is is not mentally strong. You cannot argue awfully buffy is not mentally strong. Okay buffy as mentally strong. I'm so glad that she never turned to the dark side or over got influenced by dark uh-huh that's right. She did big difference between getting hit by a demon or an elder vampire and a couple of ninjas with a boom box and an eyedropper. That's all i'm trying to say threader threader all right gene-o. Would you like to hear point number two or would you like the verbal diarrhea of radio literally screwing everywhere. What would you what would you. I would like point number two there you go. I have more diarrhea okay. I'll do point number two point number two. We're going to talk about the enhanced senses of buffy and this is where she is going to be you a cut above leonardo for a variety of reasons first off. She hasn't innate danger sense if something's about to attack her. She knows if something's about to pop out at her. She knows there's a moment where she's walking down the street by herself late at night on the t._v. Show and after walking shoes like looking like something's something's up.
