"And you see all of this beautifulness there. We always expect or we hope or faith think that that's going to be the turning point in there somehow going to quote pull it out in the end and we've been trained by a lot of TV for a lot of these movies, especially genre that pulling out in the mid and means that that even if he can survive and I like the fact that she no one was safe. I mean at all, I don't know how many time how many times why do you have to die even lady was insane? I mean, they killed at least twice. I mean all the way there twice come brought back twice and I and I really appreciated this kind of Storytelling but even when she built in and I think that's one of the things that made the moments in history chose to reconnect black people to this story to genre and to a history. That's very very much white watched. Those are the moments where we would get the real ideal job. Of where why those were so horrific like like I was saying and episode 8 it was built around in mathilde's death and you know that episode had a lot of conversations and it also had a lot of things that happen moments of Crisis that would lead to kind of child neglect because everybody's wound up in their own mess and their own problems and and and you know The Not So Silent, sorry what happens when you don't get into your children or you don't protect them or you know, one more aspect of what happens when we don't share knowledge through our families who gets harmed and I love the fact that those were the areas where she foam on things and I've been enjoying conversations with people in those areas, even the areas where I felt that there was a misstep or an area where I felt like she leaned too much into the genre and not enough into the history or vice versa, but I never really thought it was coming from just asking people. I know it kind of felt feels like when you think about that but Like my mom has just now started Lovecraft country a couple of my other friends are behind and they're like in my text messages and a lot of the guys who are not musty are very very angry about the formulation of tic. They're also very uncomfortable with the less relationship between tick and Montrose..

More seasoned I. Don't know like you're saying more developed like the it just seemed a little bit. Heightened. Better little if I'm going to say that but. As compared to lovecraft like maybe the filmmaking isn't as good but the content I wanNA. See One hundred times more even though the boys is good. lovecraft content is like I want that out there I want fifteen shows like this on every top network like I want to see it so bad that the film making a secondary I. Guess I just want the like it's it's kind of unfair to compare the boys to lovecraft country, but it is the new show that were in has Sifi watching and in his sci-fi and all those things. And dealing with a lot of current topics of social issues and things like that. I wish like I wish lovecraft country could do to with their characters, what the boys a been able to do with their characters which is. Spend more time with them and give us a little bit more Just give us a little more time with these characters individually rather than like having them kind of all together and learning about them at the same time sort of. I don't know they're doing. They're okay. But there's three episodes laughed. So it's like. Where are they going to go? Can they wrap up this first season story? ARE THEY GONNA?

"You know we I am very proud of the podcast we do and probably the fact that, hey, we've actually never lost to episode Oh my God. There's different kinds of podcast he no, there's some that come in. You know at the you know the hobbyist tear and they lose their podcast all you and they have to have their guests come back and do it over again and someone was just get it right the first time. So if you support that kind of podcasts feature on dot com slash struggle session well, we have lost plenty of episode to the point that just our trademark people like. We have a whole cutting room floor. fucking. Brand now so we can't change it. Also. We Have A. a lot of people know where you're from, but a lot of people don't as well. So you could just give us a rundown. Oh, always a joy to be here with you. It's woman occur at woman occur on twitter and I'm probably best known for my multiple guest appearances on champagne sharks and struggle sessions check out both of those shows if you haven't already thanks brother. Thank you. Thank you. We're talking about the show lovecraft country and this is a do over but I'm sure we're going to recapture all the brilliance anyway. But one thing that we were talking about to lay down the groundwork Kenny and I were not crazy about the show but. I would say leslie is the most favorable to the show and the reason why we wanted to have leslie and will on is because Kenny nine, not really judge it from just the general fiction standpoint and. As far as the social issues in the race, what is talking about I've never read book I've never read the book and I've never read. Yeah. Just the problem we both of us haven't read the book. We haven't read any HP lovecraft we say the book women. The, book that lovecraft countries based on where that's where the this is where the problems start for even talk about what this show is you have to explain what is so it's based on a book called lovecraft country by name Matt Rough and basically his goal was to make a TV show like the X. Files. So he came up with this spooky story where people go on different one and done. A vague are vaguely supernatural. You know is really not. Stuff. Not Stuff. You associate with lovecraft the book in the book the only connection to love crab is the fact that the main character has read HP lovecraft. So even less than like a superficial reference where like could through Lucia shows up and there's a fight like even less than that in this war in the world craft country nothing love crafty in his real is just his fictional story and there's Some other. There's like ghost and wizards beside that really have nothing to do lovecraft. Now, the show itself tries to adapt the book while also adding end stuff from actually from lovecraft in the way that the right of the book was never interested in. So is very weird thing where like you have to talk but you have to lay all his ground where refer you under even understand what the show. Is when frankly is might just be easier to just really like lovecraft books and lovecraft stuff that actually like takes love car seriously but I do enjoy the show overall. Yeah. Will End Leslie are both acquainted with HP lovecraft original works is why I wanted to have the money to Kinda give that balance..

"Based on lovecraft discus, his name's the title and what you think about the social media reaction it's fun to follow and I'm smart. Yeah. Not to get involved in it taller. Most people are most people are very happy but you do get you know you get the the the lovecraft purus you're like, will you know why is it called that? If it's not literally about HP, lovecraft stations does out literally in the might those and then. you know and. There's some other folks you've got other issues, but it's just sort of it's it's really hilarious and then folks who haven't. You could google this stuff, but instead, they're just going to sort of make up their mind what it must be about. So I've, and then also just the people who are obviously the people are having your mind blown in are loving it. That's the best part is the. Black nerds who like finally I got what I've been hoping for all these years right And then the funny reactions that people are like, I want to watch this but I got to watch it during the daytime because I'm scared. I love that TV so We've got. It's been fun. It's fun fun. Think they're just follow along and not. Not. Get into arguments with people because I don't need to do that. You're not gonna be like live tweeting or anything. China. I might live tweet stuff, but I'm not GONNA go after somebody if they say something you know. Could you imagine? Like. Matt. Rough. Lamed you on twitter. The action. That's the Nice thing about this happening at this point in my life I've seen another enough other people do stupid stuff and like if this were happening when I was twenty, a God help me. Well Yeah but now I'm like, no, you know. I. Don't need to send that tweet because. The moment of satisfaction give me would not be worth the years of regret that would follow.

"That affects are. Probably like this type of work is probably. Not Probably I have to imagine, it's absolutely harder to pull off right now with deadlines. Than than it would've been under normal circumstances and so I think we are you know this is the stuff I can. Make something of of expertise is being my business I, think we are. We are going to be embarking on a on a on a place with television. Where for the next several months to hopefully not but likely longer we are going to have to. Eat like the UNCANNY valley is upon us and like where meet. How, how much of it? We decided to like tolerate in living know in the same way that in the practical real world, we are making necessary adjustments in order to remain safe. You can you can make those accommodations and so for me? I'm not saying that like I can just shut off. CGI that is like kind of oral production things that are like notably a little bit off it's it's hard for me I can say that I'm trying because I think that that is going to be something that we are not just encountering with lovecraft country I expect that it's going to be something we are encountering with television across the Board. Yeah I mean for me. This is the reason that the CGI stuff doesn't bother me. I. That's not my concern dude you know is because. They're. These people are working their butts off and producing this quality content for us to enjoy during a pandemic So we've got to. Cut Them, a little slack. There I think I'm just happy that you know the programming is out there and they were able to go ahead with the lake release date as they had planned The CGI stuff I get, I understand, but it's just not the crux of the issue for me. I was about to say that like the second the trot out a zoom episode of lovecraft countries where all draw the line. Right Find find another person to be on the PODCAST I'm out that we can't handle it. But then I think about it and like actually I wonder what a lovecraft zoom episode with look by I. Bet it'd be fun to capture like the horror of the modern on it so I don't know that I would even be mad about that but I was going to at least this is in the zoom episode of lovecraft venturing very well could be. Able to crossover random article that was just like what? Sorry it was the headline was something like what if you can't leave your home during a pandemic but it's haunted. A.

"Honestly what I know of him is that he's racist like I feel like that. It's like his enduring legacy is that he's an extremely racist person and whether it was in his I didn't even know if it was like explicitly his worker as an individual like that's how much I don't know about lovecraft the book I. Recommended a couple of weeks ago. The outside was described as lovecraft which I remembered because Ebony you're talking about how his influence has been so so much broader. But. I. Don't even really know what any of that means like I. Just you know it's one of the things that's in the world, and so for me watching this show I, don't think that the show is inaccessible at all I think that it explains to you everything that you need to know to understand what's happening, but there is a part of me. That's like men would I get more out of this if I understood the subtleties or if I had any experience with lovecraft work so in a nutshell I think part wh- something that's really associated with lovecraft. in terms of like his his brand of horror are these kinds of cosmic entities. So. Like Kisulu you know these. Vast kind of God's. That in his fiction are often worshipped by like cults and things like that and who you know represent things that are that are like almost beyond the ability of human beings to to comprehend or contemplate such that. It's often written that like for any human being actually look upon Kasulu like because of throughs form simply looking upon casula would drive any human being. Insane essentially. So Cosmic. Things that that render the fabric of reality and that exists like beyond our ability to perceive or comprehend things things like that. So in the second episode where they are dealing with this, this basically clan called that that is apparently to. With the clan. but they're magics and their obsession with immortal. That lovecraft or is that added? Lee lovecraft in. And I think maybe the order, the order of the sacred don appear in some left stories. But like lovecraft himself, you know offer like a pretty expansive you know kind of cosmology but it was just further further like blossomed under other writers and artists such that it's hard to know what is originally left craft and what is love crashing like determine love crafty in you know has come to know these things that if they whether they appeared in like actual. The actual cannon lovecraft work or not are so heavily associated. You know it's as if they're from the same family and that's definitely appears in lovecraft in works as Carol said like these disciples and worshipers of these these. Cosmic figures who are if not like. Completely heedless of humanity are like actively antipathetic to humanity like the notion of like a loving you know Christian God or something is completely foreign. To this to that kind of work no yet. So after so we've only watch the first episode because that's all that has come out and like the first episode I was like. I was very intrigued and interested in. You know there's all this stuff happening and I was like, no idea where the show is going like they at the end of the episode, they show up at this house and you're like what the fuck so so if someone was like, what do you think this year I'm like I don't. I. Don't know what it is yet right? Like I'm curious I also feel that way. To the second episode like I just I feel like. So then you had the, it's almost like. I. Don't think the show is stand alone episodic, but like it feels that way so far like that you know they're on this journey, but there's like a battle in each of the episodes and so I don't like do they go back home? I think they do from the little bit that I read but I'm just like I don't know where the show is going. Yeah My. Book upon which is based by Matt rushed but my understanding is that it's like sort of loosely connected. Stories, and so that's what we'll be getting and the rest of this here's the next episode or two involves lady. Yes. Going back to Chicago and she this is not a spoiler. This is in like episode description buying like this you know this three storey tenement house that's meant to be kind of like no waste and sanctuary for black people on the north. Side of Chicago and then has to deal with like the haunting that comes from the previous owner. So I think we will see you know other these characters or these things pop up throughout the rest of the season but I don't think we're going to get necessarily like return to you know atticus fighting or sacred dawn or whatever. Okay. Abacus can we just show? Majors who was amazing in the last black man in San Francisco. Favor. Performance in that movie and so good here too. Oh my God this this show is wait to see what's going to happen. I love 'em bishop show because even when like you know doesn't quite make the mark you just really get the sense that they are trying for something you know and they're doing something new like darrow weird things happened particularly in the second. Episode, I mean, at least for me where it felt like you know like when the the three travelers are seeing these false images of of other people. So lettie, as seeing a fake version of tech Georgia's seeing version of advocacy's mother Abacus is seeing you know this version of this Korean soldier that he killed when he was at war whatever. The way that it's edited and put together I was like I have no idea what's happening here look it took me a while to figure out of this is fake. Right right as Evans says the love for an ambitious show and and for me, this show is so just potent conceptually like just the whole idea of using like love crafts. You know love crafty in lovecraft tinged horror and like taking the fact that that lovecraft was a racist and there's racism embedded his work, but using it to kind of turn that turn that back. Upon itself and tell this story that fuses like Americana with that. It's just so exciting conceptually that even when like I didn't love the second episode, but I'm so jazzed just by the concept of this show that I know I'm going to keep watching but there's like there's stuff that particularly the first episode does that I found so exciting and so so just just.

"Loved the show. The two episodes that we've seen in the first episode in particular such a Gut Punch of an achievement you know from the very beginning that is you know. Like sort of deliberately you know calls up imagery of Classic War Cinema you know it sort of like just sleep sepia toned black and white. You know Trevor Sel of of a of a trench you know and just like this cacophony of you know gunshots and you know men gambling in you know a bayonet each other and just you know What we have come to expect from like you know, the the minutiae of what it takes to to wage war on other human bodies, and then this you know literally ascendants into technicolor. You know as the character of you know who we will come to know as advocates like comes over the top of the trench and literally ascends into color and this like. What is you know literally a pulp Magazine comic novel, Cover You know UFO's flying around this like you know Lake. Candy. Colored Alien Women descending from one of the UFO's, and you know the technical masters it's like it is such like immediately within within two minutes you know I was like Yup I'm in for this matter where this story is GonNa to take me. Robinson coming in to save the day I i. absolutely loved him at the very beginning like you don't know. What you're in for right when I see that kind of like black and white war segment that opens it you know what you're in for and so to have that lake, you know seemingly sort of like effortless turn. into. This even more a you know what we learn as a dream landscape was just fantastic. You know and it just you know I loved his application of dream logic and that yes, you like, of course Jackie Robinson Little Bussey. Got You email. I just thought it was fantastic. There's a great conversation that atticus has a short while later In the opening episode. So the bus that he's on breaks down and you know he and other black passengers are sitting at the back of the bus the bus breaks down people you know come to pick up the other white the white passengers to take them the rest of the way to. CHICAGO. But Atticus, and you know just I think they and the other black passengers just sense that they are not welcome to to crowd in these smaller vehicles with white passengers. So they wind up walking Who knows some significant distance to be sure and on that walk atticus? Is Talking to this woman black woman who was on the bus and he shares it that. Book. He's reading part of what fueled that amazing opening dream sequence with the UFO's and Kasulu and Jackie Robinson and everything is a. John Carter Book. John Carter was pulp. Like he he fictional pulp hero who inspired. Just, tons of of you know other pulp heroes as well. but you know he advocates mentioned sees a confederate. soldier, ex confederate, and the woman kind of challenges them on this and. You know like you're reading. He's a he's a confederate like you can't. You're never an ex confederate like like that's. Basically saying like that's fucked up and atticus says something like stories like people love him doesn't make imperfect. You just try to cherish them overlooked their flaws. And she responds yeah. But the flaws are still there and I just thought that was a really great first of all kind of. Little little. Sustained kind of summary of of attention that we that feminists frequency as long dealt with of like. Loving stories. Yeah. But whereas like the limit like where is it like no longer? Okay to be into something. Or you know where and also like I think it's also saying something about America as this series will go on to explore it of like. Yeah, you can like love America or whatever but you can't pretend that it's not deeply rate. You can pretend that the flaws of racism are not there like they are still there and you can never forget you know or that they're they're Have are either of you actually familiar with the writings of HP lovecraft. I have. This is an interesting i. don't read and have not read much HP lovecraft precisely because of his incredible for found. Obvious. Racism. while. I nevertheless have read much much work that has been inspired by HP lovecraft. There's IT. There's a very real sense You know among people who've read like speculative fiction that HP lovecraft influence is rather more outsized. Then his actual work would it is it's it's really what people have done with. You know the do mythos You know like Carol mentioned like the Eldridge horrors is really responsible for you know it's kind of enduring popularity and pop culture where it left to just you know HP lovecraft himself who was a A wonderful sort of like ideas person but in terms of like craftsmanship, not particularly great on a lot of levels. That's my opinion feel free to ask me Ebony Asir to you know disagree. But it's really more. You know people who came after who who really set the stage for for you know the the enduring popularity of his stuff. I have read a lot of Edgar Rice burroughs though I have read a lot of John Carter of Mars books does that count for anything? Other also, incredibly racist. Did and do a lot of stuff I didn't like when I was writing my dissertation. I think it's interesting to note that. The so Atticus oncle Play by the Great Courtney Vance, his name is George George.

"Really enjoyed it I. thought that Jonathan Majors was great journeys smollet. I really liked as well. I always liked Courtney Vance I'm excited to see Michael, Kenneth Williams as. The characters estranged dad come in because he's good in everything always use from the wire on the night of and I can't wait to see Tony Goldwyn camping it up in whatever role he has because I think he chooses really interesting parts and understands camp and actually is like I'm sure he signed onto this. Sure. He gave a lot of money to it because he is a Goldwyn because it is saying something bigger and I trust him to do that and I think that's cool. So is he the guy from ghost yeah? He's like a good guy I didn't know that he's a great guy. Yeah. But he's a Goldwyn but he's Yeah Oh yeah. I think he's Samuel Golden. Goldman's rams. But. He's like this really neat guy. Super. Cool. Politically. Funds stuff like this because. He agrees politically wants to support these causes. No, he's awesome. He's been married to this woman for nine years and he's yeah, he's great. Guy. So I think that I think that he knows that he's not always the best actor, but he has fun playing either you know like. Mustache. twirling type villains and you know he was on scandal for a million years and had fun with that. So. I'm excited to see. Goes to my favorite part goes he's a super attractive guy. And it's funny I hated Ghost I was not attracted to him, but I haven't been but yeah but since knowing. Who He is in his real life were you know what he supports in Israel life he has become way more attractive to me nights. What did you think speaking of? Wow I can't Jonathan measures I mean, wow talk about another crazy shock of having seen him last by Clinton's Francisco playing this completely different character. Would you have you seen? I can't remember I always ask you this number. Of Guy Watch that immediately I think it's only prime it is. Him doing a completely different. Role and just kind of disappearing into the role and this he suddenly is like the first minute you see him like especially like on the bus and reading on the bench like this guy is such a star like they're just crazy star quality and t shirts they put him in wow. But They weren't just painted on. Right. I saw somebody tweet something about like they had to specially create super fitted tight t shirts for him and I was like I can't tell if this is like twitter joke slash their strap or actually real I mean go out and find a t shirt shoving on it.

Not Dour, but like intense or something, and it was very sort of.

You know when lovecraft wrote about racism sexism xenophobia homophobia like those were the monsters he was Kinda constructing. That was the reason that he was putting out there. An article that I read that I thought was really good was twenty seventeen article by West House that's unlit hub that's called we can't ignore. HP lovecraft. White supremacy wherein house explains making no effort to conceal his bigoted theories, lovecraft took pen and publication with the most grotesque appraisals of those. He deemed inferior his letters overflow with antisemitic conspiracy theories and he goes on to say sympathies with rising fascism were equally apparent apparently. lovecraft was quite into Hitler. And then goes on to say that his. Contempt for blacks ran even deeper. He had a nineteen twelve poem entitled on the creation of Niggers. And he even had a cat. Named nigger man because in his mind. He just thought that like. Having, just designed man and beast. Then God decided to create black people as like inbetween that space of man and Beast So yeah. I mean like I get acknowledged. The obvious blatant like just want those just a couple examples of obvious blatant racism that comes from this person but. Obviously, his works have influenced countless people they've been reading excel little bit with this book which I am going to read for sure when the holding son to. The lovecraft countries book that the show is based upon which I have it's in front of me and it's going to be reading. that. I will say it will happen. You know I see watership down on my shelf right now just been waiting for me for I don't know. It's interesting because a sorry go ahead. No I was just GonNa say you know even with this book from what I've read so far? People have been able to. Find Influence in like see the author behind the works that are near and dear their heart but at the same time you.

"Not in this house know. US, in this House we talk about racism. Yeah. So I think I think that's happening. You. Know it's funny. Tiny of curious to talk to you about this stuff too because like. We both just mentioned were huge into horror and I do love or I've seen specifically horror movies got into into books a lot recently to or novels. Lovecraft as far as like reading his works, I had never actually done myself like I was very familiar with the themes and and the stuff around it. I didn't know about racism for a long time because I never read it directly. So you know now that I know Keith. wrote a lot of these characters to be really really. Typical you know is it was a new point for me. I. Mean Honestly, I didn't even know or think about the fact that we are kipling was racist but then now is. Well. Yeah. Of course I was raised. So I I never read his stuff, but I'm super familiar with it. I'm super familiar with the coolest off and I love the idea 'cause mcwhorter I love the idea of that almost like insignificance of humanity to greater beings I think as a team is interesting. Not specifically obviously on racial lines just as humanity I always get a kick out of like we're not as important as we think we are because I feel like humanity needs to be taken out of peg on a regular basis. And? That's interested me. But I, never really delved into a lovecraft works himself and I'm curious if you have either if you've ever read anything. So No. And one of the reasons actually was because of the racism. I. I know that there are plenty of people who are able to separate art from artists and there are some times when that I think is Better. Better. Towns for that than others for me growing up. Like. My aunt who actually passed away from cancer in two thousand seventeen she's the reason I love horror. She introduced me to a very young age and she'd read lovecraft and was like you don't need this. Full. Do some some other things but yeah I. Mean. one of the cool things that I read In the rap I think it was They did like a small piece on me green in kind of like the horrors of the racist you know reality of lovecraft. First of all, my first comment is I always find it incredibly amusing when people. Are like shocked that. Old. White Dude's racist. I, it just seems. So especially, people who are people of means I mean those types of things though like racism classism just go together so well, and any author that WHO's works that we're talking about now Probably had some notoriety or came from privilege and we're able to like take up writing as a career in the first place. So. Not. At all surprised that he was racist ended up like not reading a bunch of stuff as a result of that. But I. I will say you know I. Love. A lot of the horror that. lovecraft influenced and Michele Green kind of looked at it in terms of. Just saying you know, I ended up reading lovecraft to get ready for doing this show..

"Like, Hey, that really works and he said okay, I'll continue to do it. But because of the way he handles that material the way that he portrays the story as being told by person telling a story. We are able to get distance enough from the things that are happening to wear. Now, there's something that's easily more easily empathized with or. I guess. Not, necessarily just empathize was but more easily conceptualized by US as individuals. So like when when the wording is used in its vague, we have the space to imagine something. Terrifying and life sucking. Something outside of what we would normally be able to comprehend because we're not tied to the fact that human being is explaining the direct experience to us. It's a human telling what another telling a human, what another human told them. So the distance that we get from the thing in itself is part of what creates the suspense because it's like, oh, this person experienced this firsthand in I'm this terrified of it being three degrees removed. So you empathize with the person who's experiencing it more and you have the imaginative space to. kind of like create your own vision or version of what it is. That's being told to you like if I'm being honest this, this particular story was so terrifying to me that I, legitimately thought like I might not be able to be in my house alone for too long tonight if I'd not careful because if I don't control the thoughts that are coming from this like. This scary story I could easily down a very like weird path. And once I kind of described like what the story is about which we're GonNa get to in just a moment I promise I just wanted to kind of praise lovecraft and if you're interested in reading more of his works I, think it's important to take notice of things like this because a lot of authors they have their kitschy little thing that they'll do. And it seems like love crafts is only came from outer spe spent like. Even though he does that and that's the simple answer to what the thing that were scared of. That doesn't change the fact that it's still horrifying because he paints in such he makes it out in such a way that like. We can envision the thing that he's describing to us because his his diction and syntax are excellent right in metaphor analogy everything like all of his some symbolic language and like description of setting and things like that description. All those things. Are Impeccable so like the thing that we're imagining that is the terror is very well described but what isn't as well described is the feeling of the person observing it, and so you kind of adopt this like viewpoint of the person who's observing it and I think that like if you're going to go into his books hoping for something like you know unique or interesting, that is kind of the big unique interesting thing that he's able to create these incredibly far fetched. And outlandish scenarios that you as an individual can put yourself in the shoe or put yourself in the place of the person who is experiencing in the first place. Right. So again, I just wanted to mention that at the top because I think if you read this, you'll probably want to read other love crafts and the other left crafts are very similar and so you kinda take that approach to it knowing his like Gimmick I personally think that it makes it that much better when you see it go off without a hitch which it does in most of his his novels and Novellas, and short stories, south? The basic premise of the story is that. This researcher has traveled to this town where they're going to be putting in a reservoir. At the bottom of this reservoir is an old abandoned farm that was owned by the gardeners and at that farm, there is a well. And the entire like town surrounding towns talk about these weird things that happened at the gardeners who owns the property, the gardeners arm following the following the. A specific event during which a meteorite fell onto their property. So a meteorite falls onto their property and then a bunch of scientists come out. Grab it and extract this like odd globule, which has this coloration to it that nobody is familiar with they put it in a glass phial and it goes invisible. It's oddly attracted to like things that are made of silicone. As in the way that it behaves in the laboratory, the researchers said it was really odd and they end up smashing it with a hammer. Which? Don't know there's really no like kind of talk about what happens after that or what happens to the scientists themselves. And so. The gentleman who has I think he's part of the reservoir committee or something like that goes to the town of figure out what's up with the gardeners old farm is there anybody still living there? What's the story behind it and he comes into contact with a gentleman who was best friends with the previous owner of the farm. and. That gentleman is the one who tells the story to the main character That and that's what we kind of basically are following throughout the novel so. Yeah I don't know the best way to go about like describing because I could give if I give you the premise then it kind of gives away the whole thing. So I kind of want to treat this as like we're walking through it kind of blind. You know if you watched annihilation I'm sure that you're already hearing parallel here where like a meteorite crashes onto some random spot and now weird stuff is happening around that random spot. So that is where the similarity start they certainly don't end there either. So we are going to take a quick commercial break now, and then after that, we'll get started on talking about like the names of characters as well as what it is that starts happening on the farm after the meteorite crashes there. So we will be right back.

A New Documentary Shines A Spotlight On The Lyricist Behind The Disney Renaissance
"Behind in beauty and the Beast Law Mermaid Aladdin was was basically one of the kind of. People who helped raise Disney into Disney renaissance, Disney, animation that we see in the nineties and he tragically died early from AIDS and This, movie directed by Don. Hahn goes into his life and his contributions to let that Disney legacy and It's it is direct is made in a way that is feels very much like an in Memoriam type of tribute to him because most of the film is apart from some archival footage of. The making of the songs behind the Beast and Lamar Mermaid is just photos of Howard Ashman and interviews with families and friends and colleagues But the interviews are all done in voiceover and none of the talking heads are seen a good way of making it all about Howard Ashman in all about just like his life in his experiences but in a sense, it kind of made it feel a little bit impersonal just because you're your invoices for a good. but it it works to make it. Solely, about him about about appreciating his life and I It's a really beautiful moving documentary. That is like it's made out of love because it's made by people who uh, sincerely cared about him and more than just like his contract to Disney and I but I did really enjoy the coverage that you see of him working with the orchestra and with the singers in the beast at which it movie opens with it shows them doing be our guest with Angela Lansbury and. Other singers and it's some it's really some. So it's just a really cool behind the scene sneak peek at it just like. To see him at work as well as just to see how it all came together in that kind of energy that before they knew it was gonna be a really big thing but everyone knows it's going to be something special kind of that kind of energy and I. I really like seeing that and it's a great documentary and it's streaming on Disney plus starting tomorrow August seventh. I was a big Fan of Don Hans previous
Byte The Elder Sign Podcast
"Glenn Written Brandon Buddha host. The elder signed podcast. Who came up with the idea of doing this type of podcast? Well that's a fantastic question. And I. I think that answer might change depending on on on the setting but I think like like so many good ideas this one was was born in a bar and I think we dared to to do it and and no one blinked and so so the show is show is now happening and I urge everybody to listen to the first introductory episodes really explains what you guys. You're going to be covering and you talk about the new weird Gr- you guys talk about it at length and have a great definition and I just hope people listened to that but what I really found interesting was talking about the twenties and thirties and HP lovecraft and so many great authors Robert Howard got their start writing for essentially what was called. I guess the old pulp magazines talk about that. That was probably the beginnings of of horror and science fiction. Maybe starting to get a foothold. The little bit yeah. A lot of these guys were just writing for money. They wrote a draft and mailed it out and hope to cop published then could buy can a can of meat in love grass case or whenever they needed to live on they were writing to live and they invented a lot of tropes that we now associate with weird fiction and horror and science fiction and it was all kind of one thing. It was just coming out of these magazines. That were that. Were just on racks. That people bought read on the train and so many of these writers. Just that's what they had. That's what they did. Lovecraft is notorious for kind of living a poppers life and mailing out these stories one after the other just writing prolifically and it was a kind of lifestyle and it was the big form of entertainment for a lot of people in the in the nineteen twenties and Nineteen Thirties. He I mean what lovecraft did you know really inspired so many authors after them and even screenwriters and directors frankly they they just took up the mantle that he started came up with so much interesting stuff and developed his own mythology to that we all know in love so yeah he was he was great. I gotta ask you guys about the The selection of the different stories that you cover and we'll go into some details but you have you know stories from Robert Block where it is or the moon remorse of course lovecraft and even a know Howard of course and and even some Some more recent writers as well talk about the selection process. Because there's a lot to choose from. Yeah we're really intent on covering the whole gamut of of Weird Fiction really broadly conceived of really from the beginning of modern literature modern publishing around the eighteen hundred or so up until today and one of our real interests is in charting the way that a different people in different societies and different ages and also around the globe have responded to the the tensions and even the the traumas of their historical contexts by writing weird fiction or horror fiction or science fiction to to be airing out the things about their own world their rapidly changing world many cases that they find unsettling and to do this as kind of a real comparison that I think will will really shed a lot of light on the way that this fiction can actually be used to tell us things about their societies and by contrast in people from one hundred fifty years ago with people who are writing today and the interim period and all the way in between I think will really shed some light on that.

"lovecraft" Discussed on The All Turtles Podcast
"At the media lab. It's called Sipho or science fiction, inspired credit, typing, it was originally developed with Sophia Bruckner as Sipho or scifi to Seinfeld. And we've repeated class several times now and the basic explanation, is that we assign science fiction reading video games, films, where agnostic is to format and then assign the student to build something that they find in the science fiction, so to make science reality out of science fiction, and how has science fiction as a whole Bennett inspiration to you into where you are now I think my career goes as far back as being a child, and being inspired by things like two thousand one easily things like battle start galactica things like star blazers which was space. Battleship your motto. I literally built a space shuttle simulator using an Atari twenty six hundred and the space shuttle game, which was the first video game I ever spent my own money on using TV tipped back in a chair tipped back in refrigerator box. So I've been sort of building simulated environments, in simulated experiences science fiction experiences since, you know the late seventies when I was in undergraduate. And then later my first graduate degree in theater, a got into virtual reality production so virtual reality in nineteen ninety three ninety five not ready for primetime. The hardware wasn't really there. But I was attempting to do these sort of science fiction like experiences realizing that the itself was the first form of jewel reality with would paint and story and song, and word. But then trying to figure out the what is going to be sort of, like, NextWave of storytelling, and then from there. There. I had taught myself all these skills, I moved to Hollywood. And that's how I became a visual effects technical supervisor for almost the next twenty years working on science fiction films, like red planet, or day. The stood still designing the, the interfaces that they astronauts us in red planet, designing ships doing three D animation of launch sequences and robots and things like that. So science fiction has always been sort of pervasive, undercurrent of my life, both in, in properties that I enjoyed but also in literally striving to bring about a Sifi future quite the storied background today. We're starting out with HP lovecraft. What is it about love crafts, work that has stuck with you so HP lovecraft for me is very much again like Herbert and like league win most people don't consider it science fiction? The lots of people will tell you, it's just fantasy or its horror. They don't actually understand that a lot of the, the horror in. Lovecraft comes from the stars that comes from interstellar travelers of deep deep age on. So it is a science fiction story in a lot of science fiction ends up in lovecraft down, being swept under the rug because of them are cosmic horror, and dark, horror themes, I was introduced to be lovecraft as an undergraduate again, by a members of what would become the HP lovecraft historical society. And we would you Julie play live action, call of Khufu? So you, you imagine sometimes you lark with certain people, and, you know, they can kind of get into it, and, but we were all theater majors. So you're gonna magin lar- ping with theater majors who had all just taken puppetry classes, who did special effects make-up's, who did visual effects? So we would have these deep deep weekend. The long lovecraft adventures with, with special effects and puppetry and emulated altered states of consciousness. Helmets that you would put on that way had recording devices put into them. So you would hear a certain hallucination that another person was randomized. So you didn't hear it there. And so for me, this was my introduction to lovecraft who was actually playing these characters this Pulp Fiction, cosmic horror, and then I went and discovered the books and started reading them. So for me again, it was like, oh, experienced. It went and found the, the fundamentals in the book, and to this day those relationships are still very active. That's how I ended up being the, the visual effects. Supervisor for the silent film adaptation of call of Catholic done by HP lovecraft historical society, and ended up working on a subsequent films as as well as, as labors of love essentially, I kinda see lovecraft, Nicole Khufu in particular, but really a bunch of the, the bunch of the works as. What was his definition of? I'm thinking about is like it's kernigan ISM can taking to the next level. Meaning that not only is not always men not at the center of the universe. We are not only are insignificant in the grand scheme of things. But in fact, the rest of the universe is like neutral at the very best towards us and realistically actually fairly hostile. Yes, the universe is actually trying to kill us and well, but, like not, not so much trying because I tried it, it would pretty much immediately but it's got this like, generally negative indifference at best and some hostility. And so our attempt to understand the universe. Our attempt to pursue science is actually just like pointless, but also really harmful we shouldn't do it, and it can't putting this into historical perspective of when this was written post World War, One it just seems like a really interesting way to start the twentieth century and the pursuit. Technology where to say, well, it's actually all going to be like super actively bad. Yeah. The war to end all wars, the first great mechanized war. Where science was really used to create weapons really weapons of mass destruction and some pretty heinous terrible weapons at that. I think that is reflected in ideas of lovecraft of, of, you know, we a can't conceive of the true size and intent of the universe in any way. But also what we then. Go on to create is essentially destructive in some ways, right? And even you know, some of the stories talking about non Euclidean geometry, and if you, you know, stared equations the wrong way for slightly, too long, you can, you know, summon forth demons that don't really care about you, but it will kill you anyway because they're you know, that's what they do. And for me, it's some of the some of the smaller stories like the music of Eric Zahn. I mean that one for me it's a short story. It gets right? To the chase. And, and for me that is sort of like the fundamental lovecraft. It's like he's just going deeper and deeper, in and keeps going and doesn't realize he needs to get tobacco out and things just get weirder. And weirder from there until it's too late. And then it's over, and then you have to sleep with the lights on put the book in the freezer. Totally for yourself out not the, you know, having your lights on would save you would help at all. But you could just see it coming it helps when you see me right? But this is like this very say, like the vaguely like unfocused deep dread, and pessimism about the future of society technology, I've never quite came out and said like, what were the things that were wrong? It was all all ineffable. It was all like if you if you think about it too much, you go crazy. Which evolved, they think later in the twentieth century post World War Two into the much more specific dystopia his of nights. Eighty four brave new world which which actually had like, well drawn versions of exactly how society was going to go bad, like lovecraft had like, I've got a bad feeling about this, and, you know, the stories were about other people who got close, and then went crazy without ever actually, seeing for the most part, what it was that made them crazy. And then that evolved into the went from, like sort of vaguely ominous and negative to specifically ominous negative before it got better with with and things like that. The dread and unease that you can't actually name at some point. Right. You know, and that's what makes lovecraft sort of fun in the modern era is finding finding him and his work, and the others that built the mythos after him in your favorite works, so certainly being Mineola fan. You know, part of the reason I love hell boy so much. Is that love crafty and universe? That sort of been grafted on as part of it. Do you think that the mythos the kind of the vibe by cutting you has it influenced you at all has it shaped you in any way? I think so I realize now that, that I misspoke because my first introduction to lovecraft was, I had the addition of the, the deities and demigods that has the lovecraft mythos in it before he was removed for copyright purposes. It was our first introduction to copyright law. Light isn't this suddenly have this in there? And, and so, you know that the idea of creeping orders and copyright are indelibly linked in my mind now because of that. I think I think the thing that's interesting. This idea that there was things that. Are unknowable and more than unknowable like shouldn't be known. This was before the, the atomic bomb, right this, like prefigures Oppenheimer and, and all of this by, by a few decades this idea that if you reach too far. Stuff up. It's all bad. Yeah, there's one particular story of scientists that is essentially doing work on the patera gland. So he is, you know, stimulating very focused portion of the human brain and things do not go well for him. And so, yeah, I've had to actually think about that story deeply in my work. Thank you. Dan so much. I love talking Sifi with you. And hopefully, I'll see you in the real world someday soon. Thank you. Even if love crafts worked, maybe.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff. Lauren bulk ObamaCare with a classic episode from the vault our earth while host Christian Sager is exploring a tangling question. What is earth's oldest living thing? Neighboring stuff Krishan Sager here. So as far as aging goes humans have it pretty good. I mean, we're no giant tortoises, but we're generally capable of living for decades some of us for more than a century here at brand stuff. It got us thinking, what is the world's oldest living thing. Well, that's a tricky question. And the answer depends on how we define living and thing, I let's tackle what we mean. By thing. If we say a thing could also be a clone will colony than the competition heats up quickly. There are numerous plant and fungal. Clone. Colonies that have been around for tens of thousands of years, and they're still barreling along. There's king clone the creosote Bush in the Mojave almost twelve thousand years old, and we can't forget pando the gigantic male quaking Aspen, colonial colony in Utah. He is about eighty thousand years old. Incidentally, he's also the heaviest living thing weighing in around six million kilograms. But what if we stick to sing? Single organisms if so then the tiny end lifts are strong contenders. These extrema file Methuselah like to kick back and take it easy for millions of years. They've lived a mile and a half below the ocean floor with metabolism slower than molasses only reproducing once every few centuries or millennia. I mean that makes pandas look like rabbits, there's a big let's call it loophole in the definition of living dormancy what if something was frozen in time trapped in stasis and then revived like captain America the alien in the thing in two thousand and eleven professor Brian Schubert published a paper on just that he discovered bacteria in what he called a kind of hibernation state inside tiny bubbles of thirty four thousand year old salt crystals. Other scientists have claimed to find older organisms such as the two hundred fifty million-year-old bacteria in southeast New Mexico. But Schubert's work was. Independently reproduced. So if we allow an organism to take a time out and spent thousands of years in stasis there are loads of competitors for the title of oldest living thing, many of which may still lurk undiscovered in the isolated hinterlands of earth. You know, deep oceans remote mountains, endless Arctic wastes. Now, I'm thinking of HP lovecraft well moving on. There's one other important thing. Some organisms might be immortal. Now, don't get jealous. We're not talking about some super sexy vampire type immortality. No. We're talking about jellyfish specifically hydra and the turritopsis Dory. The turritopsis is only four point five millimeters large, but capable of something that may be unique in the animal world after reaching sexual maturity, it can revert to its polyp stage, it can reverse and reset its aging cycle rendering it biologically, immortal, and the hydra doesn't seem to age at all. That means that potentially the oldest living organism could one day be a jellyfish. But for now, even counting states of dormancy, the oldest living continually active things on earth appear to be the extreme file organisms collectively called Endo Litz. But of course, there may be something older varied in time. Dormant waiting for intrepid humans to wake it from its deathly slump.
