"Story really upset me. Okay i hate to see okay. The world of lisa. Frank is not so bright right now. Okay indie beauty. brand glamour. Dolls is suing. Lisa frank regarding the makeup collection that went bust. Now i had a little bit of deja vu. When i was reading about this because i remember the kickstarter that the suit references that this is all an insider dot com will link out to this lots of details. I'm not going to get into the weeds here but twenty seventeen glamour dolls which is new. New jersey based indie brand started a kickstarter. If you remember to create. Lisa frank th-they makeup line. They raised more than glamour. Dolls raised more than three hundred. Seventy thousand dollars from more than five thousand beating enthusiast enthusiasts and this collection never came to fruition okay Some some items were so through hot topic in fc. I'm guessing that's Maybe just certain names full collection. That i wasn't completely clear on that But the bigger deal in my opinion. Is that a separate lisa frank. Makeup collection was released them more. And a lot of licensing deal. We've reported on it because we were so excited to see unicorns flying across the compact somewhat. Not exactly but when. I saw that i was thinking. Oh they were trying to do something for a while. We'll try to do something or glamour. Dolls has been trying to do something with them for a while. So representatives released a frank. Inc did not immediately respond to insiders Recent requests for comment. it is extremely It seems like things are not not great between them Glamor doll said that lisa frank intentionally and blatantly stymied the process at every possible juncture to collaborate. So this is a really juicy story. But it really upsets me. Because i really have a very positive Association and feeling with lisa. Frank so that one bummy.

Because they're actually different things. It has a parallel etymology from lucan therapists in the greek for wolf and human but it originally applied not to supernatural. Bc's but to people who thought they were supernatural beasts bc's according to the physician galen when people these days present with animals delusions they may be diagnosed with clinical like hanthropy like throats can transform at will and they have a more specific story than where wolves as an institution do in greek mythology lie cone the king of arcadia who got it in his head.

The main dish on the table was the roasted flesh of cones own son. Nick demus scheme being that would eat nikomas thinking it was pork thus proving. He wasn't all knowing turns out he was rather than kill like own. Outright zeus turned him into a wolf and resurrected the prince who then ascended to the throne but where wolves unlike in throats. There are half a dozen underworld films if you need more of that and even though there are many different werewolf legends in many different cultures. We're going to do our best to stay out of europe and away from wolves today as usual much easier said than done. Let's spin the globe around and see where to stop and stop brazil. The home of the boto and can tato the dolphin-shaped shifter of amazon river folklore during the day. The boto one can tato cavorts in the amazon living.

Though boto cantatas may look human but they have a distinct tell they retain their blow holes on the back of their heads and will always wear a hat to hide it asking that handsome stranger to take his hat off inside may be the only way to reveal the bodo and cantata renowned for being charming to the point that partygoers will beg them to stay even as morning encroaches and the bowen can tato needs to get back to the water and they aren't one trick dolphins either they have the power to control storms and can transform humans into an cantatas themselves or afflict them with disease or insanity. Most people who live near the amazon won't go near it between dusk and dawn or won't go in the water alone during the daytime because in cantatas are fond of ducting humans.

"Line to walk. So obviously, they're like, well, he he's got the candy from the House so. They asked what do you remember from getting this candy and he said he had only seen the person's arms and they were hairy. Oh okay. Cool. Not like Harry arms or gross, but it's like creepy like the person. Like. New to hide they're the only thing that he could see. So initially, when speaking to police, he couldn't remember which house he'd gotten the the candy from which they're like okay. Yeah. You're probably like in turmoil and then Timothy's funeral. Came along and the church was packed he was only a third grader at the time. It's really awful the O'Brien families obviously devastated at the service, his Dad Ronald saying him and went on to tell reporters he was all boy he loved football basketball anything. He never met a stranger, but I have my peace in knowing Tim is in heaven now. So the following day they take him out again and they're like we want to jog your memory and see if like this time in the daylight, you can figure out what house it was. So on the third trip around the neighborhood, he finally remembered the house. and. Pretty quickly, they learned that the owner of the house was an air traffic controller and he had not gotten home until eleven pm on Halloween night and there were several people to verify his alibi. Over two hundred people could verify she was at work at concert us. I guess he worked at an airport so. People saw him I guess So he was like that was not me I don't know if his arms were. Harrier, not. So is the theory that it was the wrong house or that someone else broke into his house and tried to look like him see. So his wife and daughter had been home that evening but they ran out of candy, which is why they turn the lights off and they said, no one answered the door none of us answered the door the night. So with no leads, they were like Shit. This is just like back to this urban legend. A sadistic stranger is out here on a random neighborhood handing out candy and like laced with poison for fun radio. So the first documented case of something like this happening was in Long Island in nineteen sixty four where a woman named Helen file was upset with older kids that were trick or treating. So she handed out dog biscuits, steel wool, and poison aunt buttons. and she said it was just a joke but she was found guilty of endangering children. And then following this in the seventies, there were more reports of tainted. Candy. Some stated that several children have died and hundreds have narrowly escaped serious injury from razor blades. So that was the one that like we used to hear razor blades and you're all the time in your candy bars I, remember hearing like LSD, and I've talked to my brother recently, he was like who's giving out there like I mean I, always heard the like like, Oh, I was hurt either razors and like the candy that you're GonNa like down or it was that people like people were putting drugs in your candidate who on shaving away or? That up theory doesn't even make sense exactly I heard it and some people legitimate league in my hometown believes like I have to check their candy because there might be drugs. Yeah I mean unless it's like anthrax. Ant poison also, but like cyanide cyanide no nobody's handing out there joints. And it's like they're CBD vape. Well. That W-. That's fun. I would love that. So Timothy's case became like this I mean people were basically like raise this must be this urban..

He was actually recently trying to investigate joe exotics famous zoo. Yeah I won't keeps tweeting that Oklahoma and because apparently it's very haunted not including all the other suspicions that are going on but Joe Exotic yet. Joe Has said apparently multiple. Times that people love the zoo so much that would bring their their family members who passed, and the would spread their ashes zoo. Well, they're flaring to do therefore a lot of bodies energy as their and therefore it's incredibly haunted. anzacs melts out a weird pr up. Yeah like he's very timely with his. Stu Crossover situation. So he was recently filming at the zoo and then filming got shut down in the middle because I guess there was a police investigation that surfaced because dog started smelling out decay. Smelled human. remains. So they had to stop their own paranormal negation. To, become a crime scene, which again is so on the nose, just it's like he's creating his own reality at this point it's like it's like we're just like vicariously living through also kind of literally living the it's like we make fun of him because he's so much like us. Yeah. Yeah. Anyway also much more successful and famous, and he's more important we our. Bigger but yes so he Apparently became a crime scene and so they ended up halting invest the tournament. But. He did tell me Las Vegas Review Journal that he found unique artifacts at the zoo which he plans to display at the museum which doesn't sound right if it's an active crime scene. These putting my pocket don't worry because exact quote where some of these artifacts are personal effects that used to belong to Joe Exotic and his husband. Travis. So that's the update on where he is filming. Wise. But if that's not enough for you, he has written three books. So get ready for your eyes to do a little. Are, excellent. Graphic design work they. Look exactly like his neck grow. About as good as the album of the books are called dark world into the shadows I am haunted living the light living life through the dead and go running for dummies which we own. Yes. Oh my God.

We're GONNA talk about a few of those, but I want to do my like A. Mean we're talking about my personal top three. Okay. So I love w possessions I think it's such a great show. That's the one where he talks about like the actual latest ray it's basically. Like the best he are for his music antiques roadshow but like time, literally every episode is just a different item from his own museum and they film it in his museum actually saw the filming the set in the museum we walked past in their own. That's where they film deadly possessions cameras on the lights were all setup. But. I mean this man is just powerful. For those wondering like why does he have so many like failed shows they're not failed shows. They're all many serious so easy. He decides shes sort of yet he's he's kind of again like us in that way like I have this really incredible project that I'm GONNA get bored of in three months.

So that's what that's kind of what these are there like he picks four or five episodes to do on it and they never touch it again.

"Twelve was the year where Lisa it's a frank was upset that she only got two point eight million as opposed to the fifteen million she had been sort of promised she also did interview with urban outfitters in two thousand twelve and this was an effort sort of a marketing effort about launching and apparel line with sort river retro appeal to it. Yeah yeah she was going to sell apparel with her designs on it or outfitters. Now the big thing about this interview and it's under five minutes in length is that she does not issue interviews. She doesn't let people take pictures of her. She just yes. She's had demands that when she appeared in media that they blur out her face yeah. She wants to maintain her privacy. Yes so in this in this video which is online. That's on Youtube. she talks talks about her methods. She talks about her passions at one point. She calls herself lunatic. Which I mean you know? She puts a lot of moons on stuff. That would make sense she's Yeah Hey. I like that I mean she says a very very passionate about her brandon her product and so in that interview she's just in Silhouette. It's kind of like if you are watching an interview or someone's in witness protection. They're just you know their voice has been altered and you only see them in darkness yeah but the reason that she didn't and do interviews that she didn't want to be seen on camera and there are some pictures of her out there is because she thought she was she wanted to stay out of the limelight and she thought she was super. Super famous like at one point. She said she understood Michael. Jackson felt about fame and people gave favor a hard time about that too but I mean her. Her name is her brand so I guess if if you go to a store where somebody's bringing you up and they really likely to frank and they see that your name is Lisa Frank Frank on a credit card. They might be excited. I guess I mean it. I am not one to besmirch anybody on their perception option of their own fame as I am someone who constantly misjudges the extent or lack of fame I have you're super for famous me John. Thank you all right so two thousand thirteen revenues are now down to two point three million a year so even less than it had been and and so still not like an embarrassing small amount of money but it was a far cry from the Glory Days Days of Lisa Frank Inc yeah yeah it was around that point that she had to close all of retail stores Yup. This was also when we found out that her staff which at one point had been three hundred fifty maybe four hundred people was now down to six like like you had mentioned before the break and the the interesting thing was that this was a report that was in the Arizona Daily Star and and Lisa Franks own executive assistant said well that's not true and then when asked to elaborate did not do so and then referred furred the reporter to the PR firm that handled press relations for Lisa Franken been hired yet well that so the potential pr firm. Yeah Yeah though by two thousand sixteen it was pretty much confirmed that the staff was down to like less than ten yeah I mean because you're getting these glass door reviews it just it's ridiculous to me employees in say that she possibly could have written in a style job market back into prominence yeah because stuff from the eighties nineties uses coming back seventies eighties and nineties. It's it's a big trend Chur. she's estranged all the people who would be really successful at helping her get there uh-huh or at least her company has not heard directly in two thousand sixteen. There was a list price on her factory for thirteen million dollars. There's your so I don't have that much rattling around so I guess I'll have to stay out of the market for warehouses. In Arizona of Kinda faded by that anyhow a brokerage firm was hired to find a buyer for the factory. I don't think they did no in two thousand seventeen. this is real interesting. There was a report that there would be there. Were quite quite a few reports a bunch of of news outlets reporting on this saying that there would be an animation live action hybrid movie based on Lisa Frank Characters developed by John. She stack back. WHO DID Air Force One. I mean that's exactly who I would go for and he was excited about it. Get off my plane onto my trapper keeper in at least one interview. He was excited about it but there's an IMDB page for it. It was last updated June soon of two thousand eighteen and other than being announced. There's absolutely no information on this movie yeah so this could just be another one of those projects that was talked about but never went any further than that factory got. It listed again in two thousand eighteen but this time apparently early. Maybe maybe it it had matured in value because now it was seventeen million dollar asking price so you're out of the the bubble the bubble the market the crap. I can't imagine it got more valuable than the sears but okay maybe just the land around it and Lisa Frank is still out there so you can't find her at urban outfitters anymore other than occasionally calendars or Christmas ornaments big push they made in two thousand twelve. They're not selling those items anymore. Fly You can occasionally find and her at places like target or hot topic hot topic Spencer's of Modern Day. I mean Spencer still still exist at a mall near me. There's a hot topic on one side in other while living the dream yes the JC Penney's. There is still open to you can also find. Is Your Mall stuck in a time warp. It's actually upcoming. Thank you okay all right fine. You know so she's still in these places but she's just not as prolific as she used to be. now she as we said largely focuses on licensing her characters and artwork to other companies and letting them take care of the production but even that has an always has gone smoothly right yeah so in two thousand seventeen she did she collaborated on blind with glamour dolls and they well exceeded needed their kickstarter goal of thirty thousand dollars. They made a ten times that over but as of two thousand nineteen there was still no makeup. This is starting to sound like coolest cooler man. It's rough so glamour dolls on the updates on the kickstarter page listed their expenses says how much they made and how much they needed to spend part of their costs were five hundred and fifty thousand dollars in contractual payments to Lisa Frank Inc for artwork and the characters in the licensing and things like that that sounds to me like maybe that thirty thousand dollar goal they had set the that they they. Maybe there's something really hanky going on in the background there like the costs that had not it yet been discussed before all that went forward because just seems weird to me yeah they they had some some so they had to have the designs approved and then they had to have the artwork done and then they had to get manufactured and they had some stuff that was approved in some stuff that had artwork in some stuff. It was all over the place. Some stuff hadn't been approved some stuff. You've had been approved but didn't have artwork the last update on the page in September two thousand eighteen where they said there was still trying to deliver products but obviously they haven't and then in April two thousand nineteen so not too long before we recorded this episode yes it it was announced that Lisa Frank would represent America in the twenty twenty one then by any real exhibition which is a big art to do and we got word that there might be Lisa Frank subscription box in the works now. I don't know if Lisa Frank agreed to this biennial exhibition. I don't know why she wouldn't but they did basically wanted to have a spotlight on. I guess teenagers in the nineties or something so I mean she's taking some step forward to taking some steps back. It seems like yeah but she's still around. You can still quench that nostalgia. Did you crave if you really want. I think if we're talking about lessons learned I think a big one that I would say an this is one that we've chatted about in previous episodes to is that that when you are a creative individual and you create a successful product of some sort it really behooves you to find a a business partner who is more business oriented and has that management skill and that that outlook and that approach rather than try and force someone else who also is a creative individual into that role because as we've seen in many cases not just with Lisa Frank that can that can ultimately lead to a bad situation. Maybe not quite as toxic as this particular one turned out to be but but it it it rarely turns out well and the story also kind of well not kind of it really drives home. I A lot of companies don't want intercompany dating yes yes. It's Kinda the worst case scenario of that yeah yeah. I can think of a love stories. I've heard heard about people who got into relationships while they met at work. I can't think of any that that had quite as much vitriol involved evolved as this one but yeah this is about as worse case scenario as I can like. We're we're bordering on war of the roses territory here and I'm talking about the film yeah that that was scary stuff but it's still kind of amazing that her products still perseveres through that will yeah I mean the talent is still there right. It's just the it was the the execution the management of that talent that became a religious. It's also I would imagine. There was another our challenge of any creative type handing over their their work to other people. That's always a a risky endeavor. I mean as someone who has written things that were directed by other people that that alone is a challenging situation. It really is so yeah I would imagine imagine that that also played a part well. This was a strangely moving story for me. Because I you know you again on the surface. It's all rainbows and UNICORNS. Yeah then you look at what's going on behind. It and you realize wow. There's there's some dark stuff here yeah. I I put a little bit of a shadow of my own childhood there Gosh. I can't wait till we do the muppets at I somehow get incredibly disillusioned. That'll that'll be very happy. Yes yes. I actually know quite a lot of the puppets already but that's a story for a different time.

"Aerial before we went to break you were talking about how there were some employees who were starting to express unhappiness like there was a high turnover rate that was just sort of the tip of the iceberg though because you you have some very specific incidents here in our notes starting with some people who were actually responsible for building that factory we mentioned before for the break yeah so the contractors and the builders at least some of them filed a four million dollar lawsuit against Lisa Frank Incorporated in Nineteen Nineteen Ninety Eight because they were saying they hadn't been paid for their work in building the factory right and this was just the very beginning of that change in public public perception of the company because by two thousand one it had a very different reputation at least in the Tucson Arizona's region right yeah people we call it the crappiest place to work in the world. It had a nickname of the Rainbow Gulag because again the factory he was like a again according to Jabil dot com and then some other personal accounts. I don't know how widespread that was but I've seen it referenced. A few times is it just people would warn against working at this company. That's obviously anytime you run across that like. Let's say you go on the glass door or something and you're just trying to get a quick snapshot of what is it like to be part of. This organization and you start seeing things like that. I mean that's never good if you're seeing like that's the overwhelming consensus. That's that's a huge warning yeah. They're glass door. Rating is ridiculously low wow and it has it has a review from two thousand nineteen on there. It's the person said they were former employees. So I don't know how far back that far back it was reports and reviews both both on glass door and other places say that the factory is poorly maintained deadlines reportedly organized organized the company lacked compassionate management talent wasn't nurtured and guided and that's all putting it very nicely well many reports. Let's say the management was often outright cruel and again we'll get the more we talk about this will uncover more of that turn to sound like the factory in. Les Miz where the the form and is just the absolute worst tyrant in the world and then Valjean the owner walks in is like whoa. I totally had no idea idea yeah. people say they were micromanage and underpaid that they weren't allowed to talk to each other or visitors and that you you know. Amazon has m sure but he also doesn't like a lot of talking but they also they also get a lot of criticism for that very fact you've seen in a lot of calls for boycotts of Amazon on things like Prime Day because of the conditions that have been reported in their warehouses so yeah this. Yes I opening stuff. It's also just also such a juxtaposition of the appearance of the products his all bright shiny and happy be and then the the stories which could not be further from that appearance. I mean a lot of companies are poorly. Organized companies are poorly maintained and especially in later years factory was poorly maintained as things continue to keep on going yeah all all right but I mean it's really hard to work with management who is not appreciative and most of that blame falls on James Green. Yeah there for a lot of allegations made against him and we're not necessarily saying these allegations are true for saying that people made these allegations against him. I mean he he there. Were rumors that he drugs that he cheated on his wife that that he was. GonNa take the company and specifically rumors that he was is cheating with the VP of Lisa Frank Rhonda Rowlett Yeah. A Lisa didn't get very high marks herself from several of the former employer reviews. I've have read like she would watch over your shoulder. While you work in corrected you should correct you and it would not make sense there were accounts of her yelling and threatening lives of employee's if they messed up a presentation or mistakes happened. That seems a little extreme. It seems a little extreme but most most of what I've read most of the fault goes to James. Not all but a lot of it. They said I mean it really chalks up to the fact that Lisa and James are not business people. They didn't really know how to run. A business. Lisa had a great product and she had great design concept on Sept but running a large company. She wasn't wasn't her those skill set and he had been hired on as illustrator yeah yeah and they just weren't nurturing being the people who could help them succeed in two thousand one. The factory was listed for sale while for the first time yeah I take it since you said for the first time there were no buyers I I don't believe so. It's been on and off the market. I think up until this point right today between the year two thousand three in two thousand four eighty employees walked out with very little notice notice a reason because they were just done well how how many makes much of that how big was the workforce entirely like. I saw some reports saying somewhere around three fifty some something around four hundred okay so that was a significant number of their employees yeah yeah and then in two thousand and four there was a large round of layoffs layoffs bringing staff down to around one hundred so the people who got out might have just been like holy so you had to leave on my terms. I mean there is a lot of turnover so a lot of people left on their terms got fired on Sundays when they didn't know what was going on or why so they'd come in and find out. They don't have a job yeah. Thanks Wchs Yeah in two thousand five. It looks it looked like Lisa. Frank was trying to correct course. She divorced her husband. some reports say she had been toying with that idea for a while but she was worried about how it would affect the company. Some reports say that he was abusive to her like he was abusive. In the company she sued him for poor management of her company. of the people and the funds within the company and James an Rhonda both got really really really negative reports from the employees that Lisa was able to get affidavits from regarding this so the content of those statements statements painted a pretty grim and an unflattering picture which again is in line with the stuff. We've already said ED earlier in this episode right yeah people said that green was intimidating and abusive degrading disrespecting and these are words. I'm pulling directly from the court documents yeah. This is just like the piece that sums everything up yeah. He called the names. He threatened them. He would monitor monitor their phone calls and emails while for no apparent reason other than he just didn't trust him. He he rasp people. He let people go without reason which that's iffy because caused for firing. There's you can fire people for a lot of reasons. If you work in certain states like ours as you can fire them for no reason yeah and states and then you know the these documents also said that Rondo was helping winging enforce enforce these tactics. She was also abusive as well which goes back to that rumor that they were having an affair. I could go on. That's just a small sample of the things people said that he did in the company and the ways that he was taking the company we don't have time to go into all all of them. Yeah it would be also just be depressing and they are personal people's personal. I guess testimonies right. You can look look at these documents online if you're really interested and James Green was not going to go quietly he actually would countersue Assu the Lisa Frank Incorporated company because he didn't want to have to give up his nearly half share of that company. I mean that was the substantial source of his income like millions of dollars worth of value there but that battle would be one he would lose news though as we understand it court cases take awhile so it that case stretched on for about five years yes also in two thousand on six so before this case is over Ron Dera. Let's has been sued Lisa Frank in regards to allegations of stolen property. That lawsuit was dismissed aches and we're not done with lawsuits yet. No no so two thousand nine James Green tries to evict his wife from the factory and he is trying to convince Vince his children his sons to let him do it and they had to give him written consent in order for this to go forward and he was trying to do this this by establish establishing his own company he had his own company established and I think his sons are a part of that and that's why they they had to have this ban but they didn't buy in yeah they did not side with him on this case now and since then Lisa in James have had fights over also examine all sorts of aspects of their lives and when we say fights we mean like like lawsuits lawsuits over who gets what furniture even yeah. I mean you know granted. I mean there's only so many unicorns you can fit into a house but come on you know. I bet that number is pretty high for Julie. Suffering probably by two thousand eleven the Lisa Frank Factory was considered vacant although she was still doing some design work there and keeping some inventory there she had cut most of her staff do a due to an exclusive licensing agreement met with CSS industries so they were actually making the stuff that she was designing. They were no longer producing this out of the factory in Tucson now now they see as I said we'll manufacturing. Sell your products for you and we'll get you distributed nationwide make fifteen million dollars a year. I mean that's not a bad in you know decide bad piece of Cheddar their fifteen million but it's still amazing to me to think that there is a practically empty warehouse where there's like. Maybe a couple of offices that people are working in and maybe there's like a metric crap ton Raisin Unicorn stickers yeah. It seems it's the story is so weird it is. I mean we'll get to it later reports. Let's say that closer to the timer recording this she was around to six staff members who then had to. I guess report to the office the Lisa Frank Factory the was getting overgrown with weeds and how basically a ghost town well and and to make matters more complicated in in the timeframe we were just chatting about so this agreement was that she was led to believe. She'd be making fifteen million a year. That's not exactly how it turned out though is no oh the first year she only made two point eight million so she sued CSS industries in two thousand twelve for basically breaking their promise and breaking their agreement with her not getting enough market saturation actuation to meet the estimated revenues and she's tried to protect her intellectual property through this whole process that included against other organizations like ORB factory for their designs saying that their designs were far too similar to hers that happened in two thousand fifteen. Yeah they had a court case but settled old before the ruling yeah which frequently happens when yeah when parties aren't entirely certain how it's going to go or had to pay the jury fees. He's for the trial in that settlement yeah but like we said in the Intro Lisa Frank is still around still trying to make a comeback and we're going to talk a little little bit about that side of things. Try to get a slightly more positive view on stuff slightly Shinier Rainbow.
