Greg Amundson on the Spirituality Requirement of Leadership
"Greg madame. So excited to have you on the show. Welcome dose of leadership. Thank you for having me on your show. Your background is so varied man. I was reading your bio and a komo leave. How much stuff you've done in your short life span man. What what what drives us motivation in this passion. What what's driving it. I appreciate the question. I have certainly worn many hats. There seems to be a hardwired. Drives in me. Undoubtedly fostered by my mom and dad have gone to be with the lord. This hardwired drive to serve other people specifically in the context of the warrior profession whether that be military law enforcement martial art fitness now serving in ministry capacities. That drive has been part of my life for as long as i can remember watching. Your father was a pastor. Right if i read that correctly following in his footsteps. He wore many hats as well. He was a naval officer. Tire proctor bodybuilder. Pastor youth minister at the california youth authority phenomenal father to me. Amazing husband to my mom. He was just an amazing guy. Yeah so obviously you had a perfect example to strive towards right. I mean i sincerely did. I know many people likely say that in good for that press job. I was one of them. I have an amazing example in both my mom and my dad they complimented each other so well and to this day i still have moments of my parents told me that i knew this was gonna happen. So what is it. I mean it looking at you. Obviously fitness takes a huge Part of your makeup. Right and mean and certainly i can understand in i strive to get there and i know when i'm in the zone getting that physical fitness piece and coming from the marine corps. When i was looking back where i was him now to where. I wasn't a marine corps. And how fit. I was in how that that fed into my mental capacity. Right i mean. I think that physical fitness the main reason i think obviously we think it's for our our health or physical health like a heart and blood pressure and all i can. Thanks but i honestly think it's more mental thing and i i just. I know that i don't exercise. My mental capacity goes down the drain. Yeah well said. I completely agree with you. My earliest childhood memories again back to my parents earliest childhood memories. My dad driving me to the ymca to workout along the way would listening to audio cassette tapes of the prominent pastors theologians of that time so in my young very impressionable mind. I'm starting to see the relationship between physical training developing a strong robust resilient body developing a strong bus resilient than developing a strong resilient spirit. How those are all interconnected and reflecting on nearly a lifetime of physical training. I've probably worked out every day of my life since i was a very very young boy. What i've realized is that the greatest adaptation to all the physical training is mental. Yeah i think it's the biggest. I think it's the biggest hurdle and i am. I'm fifty two years old. And i that clarity of of the challenge of the mental thing really just in the last decade for me realizing the power of that And i would say that. Leadership is eighty percent if not more of the self awareness and overcoming limiting beliefs in the self doubt that i think and i've come to appreciate that this is largely due to all the conversations i've had on the show for eight years that they never truly go away and i think that once you understand that embrace that then you can start getting on with it. Does that make sense. Like i think we spent a lot of wasted energy and time and resources trying to eliminate it even in the. I think even when this. I'm curious what your answer is. Because you're such a maniac. When it comes to fitness right but at some point i mean you you have to be dealing with limiting beliefs self-doubt even as those confident in his fifth. As you must must be right is that is that a fair statement. Very fair statement. I flipped the paradigm on fear uncertainty anxiety. Self doubt. yeah. I noticed i. I'm only fearful. I only have anxiety only uncertain about things that matter in me. A great deal right. So i use anxiety. Fear uncertainty as a compass to navigate to point me in the direction that god wants me to go.

Talking about them as though she were an expert. And since the study of these belief systems on the part of is difficult to corroborate in any level. particularly in her earlier years I just want people to recognize that that has to be taken with a grain of salt S- we do have to note though that the theological society persists despite these bumpy times during boulevard he's life her books continue to be pretty popular additionally the Boulevard Ski Lodge in London is still there although it has changed locations from where it was when Madonna Levinsky initially established it and as for that damning report of eighteen eighty five declared Madame Lavar ski of fraud..

"The podcast, you may recall that the modern spiritualist movement is usually cited as beginning with the Fox sisters and their claims of communication with spirits in eighteen, forty, eight previous hosts Sarah and Dobalina did a whole episode on their story. So by the time Helena Levinsky became. Connected to it, spiritualism had been getting attention particularly in the United States for a couple of decades and had grown very popular even though it, it also had plenty of doubters right from the beginning and although Madamba Lansky became connected to spiritualism she was either logically map hundred percent aligned with it the idea of spiritualism involved communication with the souls of the deceased she. Didn't believe that events like seances were making contact with the dead but instead that the entities being reached were elemental 's or shells, not actual souls she did really love seance though she certainly did because that was part of her fully actualized paranormal abilities after she came out of that coma was if she could contact other realms through seances and it is through. Her work conducting seances that she met the man who would become one of her greatest admirers and most enthusiastic collaborators.

He found himself at levesque's seance because he was conducting investigative research into what a lot of people suspected were not spiritual experiences at all but the work of charlatans.

There's a whole story about the farm that they're at, which was run by these people that were having seances and making money off of it like they were charging entry fees and booking spiritualists to come in and do these I want to call them performances but these. Events but even before the saints began, Alcott could not help.

"Blow Vosges, own accounts of this period of her life shifted and changed over the years sometimes in ways that contradicted one another or created impossibilities in terms of the timeline. The first place that Madame Boulevard ski explored was Constantinople later she shared that it was here that she met opera singer a guarded Metro Vici after finding him stabbed and left for dead in the street. levesque's stood watch over him with a pistol to ward off anybody who had ill intent while waiting for somebody to help her arrange for him to get help. Should find some nefarious help eventually and metro which was treated and recovered. The two of them remained friends for the remaining two decades of the singer's life. Helene is also said to have made the acquaintance of the Countess. Sophia. KISLA. In Constantinople who she traveled with for several months often disguised as a young man they went to Egypt and Greece together before heading to Eastern Europe Metro, pitch an Helena been turned up together somewhere in Europe Metro pitcher wrote to Helena's grandfather to tell him that the two were married at. This is all very blurry. We don't know if this was like a I'm your friend I'm going to. Tell your grandparents that were together now and explain this to your husband or if he really thought they were getting married. It's a again everything murky murky murky.

Hello, and welcome to the podcast I'm holly fry and I'm Tracy. Be Wilson Tracy. It's the best month of the year I know it's your absolute favorite. It is I mean I in my heart it's October every day. But now we're in October, which means Halloween content and for this October, we're doing kind of an on ramp topic because it's a subject that I know you and I have both been kind of mentally prowling around for a bit. It is Madam Boulevard Sqi who is said to have gone simply by her initials of. Be. I have a hard time saying that so I'm going to stick to her regular name. Like the name she was known by in all of her work around the English speaking world we're not gonNA try to like create her Russian name in Russian because that. Like, not how she was known here right. And Blah Blah ski is a figure that is II connick in a number of ways. She was the founder of the esophageal movement. She lived a life of adventure that is hard, very hard to believe frankly we'll talk a little bit about the likely embellishment of some of her life story. And you could also make the case that she in many ways set the image that persist to this day in pop culture of the fortune teller clad in flowing garments infringe she tended to play up her otherness as she traveled through the world to make a name for herself and to make a living. She is a polarizing figure to this day. There are still people that are scholars of her work and still people that are very vested in disproving her work. But the important thing is that the impact of her work is still felt in the world whether you believe her to have been genuine mystic or a total fraud. So we're tackling Madame Levinsky.

"I love that I think you're going to be my. Kitsch man pitchwoman from now on that introduction. Can Go and south snake oil together we should get like an old on. These champs in themes lifestyle. What are we waiting for? Exactly, you know that's how I got started doing Tarot publicly was because I had an old time medicine show. Called Madame pantages parlor wonders I would do. I'd have cards that people would come up and pick a card, and then I would tell a little mini fortune and then we would do an old time. Hokum you know early twenties, Jazz Song that you know that went along with that card and then. We would play afterwards. Let's say, Hey, will you do reading for me? I had never done reading public only for my friends only for myself like. Nets around what you're. This would have been two thousand. Only two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, seven, two, thousand, eight. Around there So that's when I got started reading. I had been for years and years decades. But at that point, that's when I got started reading professionally was through my old time medicine show and I was told I used to sell I used to sell little bottles many glass bottles of booze. You know like the airplane bottles I would put new labels on them and call them the Elixir of creativity or the Elixir of love and I would sell them at the show. Is really into an. Already done that we can revive that again. Oh. My God. Mike Wise. So like I know that they're they're starting to be pretty many of us that are of a wedgie people that that were former or still going on like punks in rock enroll people and and it seems like it starting to sing seem to me that like this is a natural progression you've got from insane rock and roll lifestyle that was blended over with some kind of magic thing just going into being full wet. What the Fuck do you think? That's about. Well I think you know I. Look at you know it's very funny when I talk about I teach magic and I teach Witchcraft to people spell casting. You know that's one of my things I'm passionate about teaching. People come to me and they go bull can I do this or can I do that? Can I do come to me? Spell? Isn't that course of magic and I go? This is not the Catholic Church nobody can say to you. You can't do this or you can't do that and all that stuff of like you know course of magic is bad or doing the magic as bad. I don't buy that whole. Hierarchy of someone from on high telling, you can't do a certain kind of magic you as a witch have your personal ethics. That's the whole damn. Point of being a witch is that you don't have a boss telling you what to do. So if you believe in the rule of three, you don't you know what goes around comes around great and then abide by that because you choose to buy by that not because some poke or somebody else tells you some which pope tells you that you can't do that. So it's very interesting because I see that correspondence in like punk rock because punk rock was the same thing which was nobody can tell you what to do. Nobody can tell you. You're not good enough to be in a band. You're not a good enough guitar player or you're not. You can't bank is your girl or you can't be in a band because of this that's what punk rock opened up which was anybody can do. You don't have to be a certain gender cert- raised a certain size, a certain anything or even adept at an instrument to be able to start a band and that's that that punk rock diy. Bring everything that I do anyway which is you get to decide for you. That's the whole point of being a witch. If you don't if that's you don't want that you want someone to give you rules. There's plenty of religions out there that you can belong to the. We'll tell you what you can and can't do you know. That's exactly that's exactly the way. That's exactly the way that I see it. I mean I it's it seems like it makes complete sense to me like sometimes when people if people look at my life may be probably yours joe like that they can't figure out the connections between any of that stat than Ed seems like it. So obvious to me you know and also I think From like ice. US growing up in the seventies in the sixties I. Think you're younger than me I'm not sure. Gordon Sixty four you all do me Ooh. My. I was born in sixty four I'm not sixty four I was born in. Younger than me that. I was here in what I wanted to hear. Well I mean like when? I when I? When I was twelve hours. Was babysitting and raking leaves, and doing all sorts of joys I could get to things and runway has a book called Potions and spells of witchcraft which I've electorate on. Ebay. In and I somewhere along the years probably like in the eighties it got lost at actually might not be lost it might be like. Hal My original tear ducts also ordered from that babysitting venture I thought they realized to Mike. I couldn't find Tarot cards for awhile and I'd had them well into adulthood and had a lot of ducks and then I sort of let it grow for long anyway. So I'm like hides came back to me when I decided to get back into it in crazy us ways like like I. Finally, got down on I gotta get some Tarot Cards. In that order, them on Amazon Mike the First Knack had been mail order then as soon as they did that as well I gotta go back to realize now and went to look for some insurance papers and really what the fuck was very first package of Tarot cards doing under my auto insurance peepers and I hadn't seen them in. I mean. So anyway, there's all that kind of set but. All of that stuff in the seventies, there wasn't really any guidance of anything. So some of the ways that operate in doing anything which or or is is so completely self taught that it wasn't until. Decades later, I started really meeting and researching and You know seeing how it was really done because you couldn't just go where I wasn't a small New England town and go on who's going to teach me how to do. There was nobody. was nothing that I think that it's very interesting because the the as old timers. Remember when that there was so little information out there that when you came across anything and I remember being a kid an I would get books about superstitions because this is when I was young ten twelve years old you know. Because, I could not find anything. But if I found something about superstitions, a superstition was one step away really from a spell not. So by found a book about Pennsylvania, Dutch, Heck's magic. I. Was like. That's my dad's side all that. Yeah so that that. You'd find something that was like Oh. Look at this cute little folklore thing. Oh, isn't this cute and quaint old tiny and I'd be like, Oh my God it's magic. But my first magic book I found 'cause I grew up in Santa Monica. And still am in Santa Monica. was at Lincoln Junior high school. Goal Library had simple leaks diary of a witch..
The Doula Life with Interview by Jess Gronas
"So, just kind of. All these different snippets I feel it kind of led me to to wear with the Dula stuff in it was just the last. This last year that I started doing it fulltime I always did it kind of part time taking on birth here in their bouquets making many as adults is really hard. When you're starting out starting out a business, you have to find clients you are. A you know. Especially, if people have kids, you need to find child care and for me it was like, okay. Even if I find some clients enough to pay my bills I still have my job but I can't just call out of my job whenever I want when somebody goes into Labor you know so I would kind of take on like. Last year I. Think. I did five like I took like five birth rate. Need you have to be available? Twenty four seven, right. So. But I still needed a fulltime job. I was living downtown Chicago rent's not cheap saving up for a wedding. So. So I, just kind of dabbled in it and then it was. This. Last year that unlike. Okay. I'm going to focus on the podcast in on birth work. So In my thing with the podcast too was I wanted to empower women through storytelling it education people to listen to the podcast. was into different experts in different topics in different stories, women who have had different experiences so that you don't feel isolated in motherhood or in your story so that you can still feel and be a part of community and with the educational aspect it's fun for me because I'm learning but also so people know their options you know that. I've never thought about. Birth control display like we recently did an episode with Natural Family Planning which I've never done but I'm like it sounds really cool I don't know how to do it. So spun talking to somebody who that's what she and her husband used for eight years. Then she used it to get pregnant and through the process she wanted so much broader body about her cycle and her healthy ben in. So it's just kind of fun hearing from different people. To that you know okay if me and my husband after this baby, we don't have a kid. For a while. We have. Never considered this before, but maybe it is an option or now I know more information about this one thing. So that agonists make a better decision for myself and my family. Yeah and you've got a lot of awesome experts on the show in powerful women earn hiring women as well. Just sharing their story I've loved that What made you I think like I wanNA. Create a podcast. I. Mean it started. I it was something I wanted to for quite a while and then I partnered with a couple of other people for the first year a bit and they were new moms I worked as a Dula. So it was like, okay. You guys can talk about your mom experience in all kind of be the Dula on the show. And then after a year, it was just kind of going our separate ways and I'm like I really want this to be empowering. You know I want I don't want to necessarily be about. US just talking it's like I. Had the opportunity to do it on my own, and that's when I created miraculous Mama's it was like a little over a year ago. I'm like I really want this to be. To. Really dive into that community to really. Like for me it's it's it's nice to get people from all different walks of life form. But may focus wasn't like. Just, get somebody famous on which I felt like it kind of wants full or in now it was like, okay. But what are they gonNA talk about like what they offer Get somebody, who has experienced source story to share and Sony really wanted to turn it more educational and bring on more experts and specialists. So it was cool because I gotta talk to one of the top infertility doctors in the world he lives in Chicago they went downtown to his office than he so cool Bryan, Caplan, and. Actually Madame my work when I was working downtown. So There's just a small role in like your podcast. So it was it was nice to then be able to. To focus on. Just the learning part because. Although like do are concerned Labor experts. So when you're in labor, we know how what your body's doing, what it's going through the signs to look for when there are different interventions that happen were there to bounce the ideas off of you to talk about okay. Are you comfortable with this? Like are you do need a minute to think it over like Salat? You've blake when the doctor comes in and it's like, okay I think we need to do this. Now you have to give an answer nuclear what kind of I need a little bit of time to think it over and figure out what all my options are so but I'm definitely not an expert in other fields. So it's nice to be a part of this learning process case than. Right when the started a just gotten married and I'm like, okay no veto I wanNA start a family soon. So I wanNA bring on tons of people so that I can learn so that we can be prepared in new so many other women. Were on that journey as wall.
All the biggest announcements from Ubisoft's Forward event

It's covering the December third I. It's coming to deep breath playstation for playstation five, xbox one series series s switch PC. An Stadia on December third stadium however is getting demo before launched that'll be exclusive. Stadia it'll be a unique island.

But then also if you'll. If. You'll structured like a Yousof game and I was actually talking to my roommate Michael about this last night.

The wild part of that game I thought was the journey across the island and making it feel like you're making big steps watching What we saw last night from Phoenix rising. It seemed like traversing the island in getting around seemed quicker. Is that an apt description or is that just what made to look like? I think that's apt but I also wonder how late in the game that is because when I jumped in halfway through I, wonder if we're at the beginning of the game, does heal a lot slower because that is my thing with breath to you a breath breath the wild. One. Of The wild one. Breath wild felt like one of the biggest open world games I played even though it probably like in scale of the map, it probably isn't as like it probably isn't that big you know in reality but the way in which they approach like that journey aspect of it makes it feel like it's huge near exploring all these different things in that like you know you really feel like you're going. Through journey because you're kind of exploring that world slowly and meticulously, and you know, they give you the the paraglider thing early in the game breath wild Ryan so like they give you some of those those those tools to explorer in like go through the island quicker. But even even with that Econo, still feel like you're tracking few and You know really getting everything out of the map. Immoral Phoenix rising when I was playing did feel a bit like quicker and did feel be onto the next thing right? You feel like you are going to the next class breath while didn't really have A. The has system, but it's not as traditional and strict as. A. Lot of other similar open World Games try immoral Phoenix rising does seem to have a quest system that is a bit stricter in terms of, hey, go do this thing called the next question? Do this thing called? The next. Which? I think a lot of people who may not have liked breath wild for that are going to like a moral phoenix rising for its structure. But I think that also means that you might be exploring this game at a particular pace is probably going to be a bit quicker. I don't think it is going to be the man. What is this? What we're here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA check this out like this who unique thing that you've never seen before that that that blows your mind I don't know how those moments you're gonna get but you are going to have like open world puzzles and things that are discoverable just maybe not on the level of breath. Wow. Okay I had zero hype for this game and then washing shows like Oh shit I'd like to play that and I think December's time for to after like the run to black Friday new consoles or out every starting to chill and settle for the holidays.

Now, frame did not pop out. There is going to be another ubisoft forward in the coming months. But before then before the end there, one more thing was writers republic Again, from the people who made steep this giant multiplayer online game, you're all doing outdoor shit like riding bikes and snowboarding and jumping off crap and doing races is coming February twenty fifth twenty, twenty one and gamespot reports even though that's after the launch of the. Series x? US. Offering free upgrades from PS four and xbox one versions to their respective next Gen versions, which is a very nice move on their part. Hopefully, they're committed to this. Yeah. Talk about this because you tim immediately lit up for this one and I mean, we started reading twitter. Yeah. I don't know exactly what it is about this game I don't know if there's one thing about this game rows like this me this is what I need but like the more and more they show during that trailer because it was it was a long trailer, the more and Morales like. No. Yeah. This seems like it has a fun like it seems like a fun combination of quite a few ubisoft games. Right has a lot of steep in. It seems like it has some trials in it even seems like it has some far cry in it. When you look at the world and you look at the some of the colors you see an almost has like some rage in it all. You know when you look at when you look at the colors i. I want to know more about what structure of the game is like. Is it battery Al is a like fog is, is it just you're doing a bunch of different activities that that scale based on how many players? There are ten players to thirty whatever I'm more curious about that. But from the stuff they show they show a game that was very similar to graffiti from Tony Hawk. Where graffiti is the game where like it's a multiplayer game where if you do a trick on a ramp or like on a grind or whatever yellow then color that the ramp or or the grind your color, and you are essentially doing as matrix all over the map as you can in order to take over the map versus your opponent almost kind of platoon ish in a way. They showed a game battle is very much that we've made me go. Oh, snap. All right. This seems like it has a lot in in terms of the different, the different ways in which you can have fun. So all about it looks cool. It looks like it's going to grow over time I'm surprised it's coming out so soon.

April Ryan Interview
"Another tactic trump used to galvanize his core supporters came to me in an awkward moment in the summer of twenty seventeen I took my kids to New York City to see Broadway musical wicked for the third time yet more importantly to see actress Shirley Ralph, who played madame miracle the headmistress of the school. My friend made theater history by being the first black woman to play Madame miracle on Broadway, it was art imitating life. When one of the characters began to reveal the plot of the play making the green, which the enemy of Oz character said the best way to unify people is to create a common enemy. Mind you wicked. The book was published in Nineteen Ninety, five and the play was a broadway musical in two, thousand and three. This thought pattern was laid well before Donald Trump decided to create a common enemy, but he understood what to do. And you could say that about a lot of things calling cabinet is the common enemy. April Ryan is the common in Barack Obama is the common and the media in general common. Enemy of the people isn't that something you and that was I swim. Are you afraid for your life right now? 'CAUSE you've gotten death threats. Now you're traveling with security. Are. You didn't say I'll challenge with security okay. Okay. Are you are you are you are you seriously afraid for your life? I'm seriously afraid. I'm seriously the mount over their freight for myself. I'm afraid for my fellow reporters. There are some crazy people out here. Today there are people out here who listen to this president and believe that he's doing God's work and think they're doing God's bidding by calling us and threatening us. A reporter, call my boss recently. And said, well, you know we hear April's getting these death threats and then. Okay well, I thought he was just going to verify verbally that I was getting the death threats. So my boss and I talked on the phone. So yeah I got a call from so and so from Sullen. So I said Oh I said, did you tell them? He said not only did I tell them I gave him the emails I gave them the voicemails I gave him I gave him everything I said what so it's cringe-worthy but I am not going to cower to fear. I. Do what I have to do to survive, but I'm not gonNA couch fear. Ones at back what does a credible death threat look like what have you gotten that really made you say I without going into without going into a lot of it when someone calls or emails or texts my company or me and says death from above and you know how? Some of these things are just belligerent and they talk about you know falsehoods about the black community. I'm a race Baiter I'm this I'm that and then death from it I don't WanNa get into it, but I had one the one of the early one came into the company website saying that I was like what in the person happened to be someone a retired military person Yes. So I don't want to go any further into this, but it's real Torah, it's real and. It's real, but I'm not going to stop because. I take my precautions I'm on I'm fully aware of it, but guess what a lot of it to they want to make you afraid. They want to make you afraid and I refuse. Has It changed the way you do your job in any way noticed that changed the way I do my job? No not at all not at all not at all. And I refuse to let it have you seen. This climate of media as the enemy and we must be violent toward media has it affected the way others are doing their jobs. I can't tell you what others I mean. I. Don't talk to them that much because. I just I don't WanNa. Give it life. But there's also this understanding that it's real. I mean. WanNa talk to you but I can't and I just don't want to get into it because. They're people who may WANNA copy. There are people who may want to do and I'm not going to give them that foothold. and I and I hear you sign because it's a sad day. No, it's it is heavy to see what we've already seen of. The newspaper gets attacked. This one gets attacked that when the television you hear Kim Volvo what they called they said to Kim is like what what, what did they say? They said some crazy stuff about you know they were talking about I don't even want to give you talking about the AK seventy, you use a pin but what about I have an AK seventy something along that line I'm like what it's ridiculous. C. Span of C. Span caller said something crazy about Brian. So I'm like what and I'm like it's not a joke. You don't use this tongue in cheek these words this is real this allies people don't see.

Stop dancing to the sound of your oppression | Madame Gandhi
"It's Ted talks daily I'm Elise Hugh News it carries tremendous power to connect us to ourselves and one another but only a tiny percentage of music producers identify as women which means the songs turn up in our cars or in our ear buds can end up spreading harmful ideas about women. In her Ted Twenty Twenty Talk Madame. Gandhi sheriff's an alternative track. It features something refreshing. So, often I'll take a fitness class or go to a music venue. Or really anywhere that plays music in the background and I'll find myself loving the rhythms and the maladies and the beats. And then I take a second to listen to the lyrics lyrics that, for example, place us in a position of subservience that we would never tolerate in any other context and I am Aghast at the degree to which we normalize sexism in our culture I listen this music and I'm like. I don't want to have to turn up to the sound of my own oppression you know music. Is One of the most powerful forms of communication. Because it has the potential to either uplift or oppress. Music caters to the emotions music caters to the soul music opens up our soul. It opens up our channels to receive information about somebody else's walk of life to inform our own roles, and while I have no problem with male fantasy. What I do have a problem with, is that according to a recent study only two point six percent of all music producers identify as women that means an even smaller percentage identify as trans or gender non? Conforming. And what does this matter? Because if we don't own and control our own narrative. Somebody, else will tell our stories for us and they will get it wrong perpetuating the very myths that hold us back and I'm here to tell other people how to make their music. But I am here to provide an design the alternative. One Strategy I take in my music. Is Making up lifting energetic progressive global beats. And placing lyrics on top of them that genuinely described my life's experiences without contributing the oppression of anybody else. It's funny because it's the same reason as to why we excuse so many problematic lyrics it's because we love how beats make us feel. An example of this is my song topnotch turn up. Off My phone notification. So why have more time no bubbles to trouble clear state of mind. One thing the no. I'm not here to please hair tied up properly what time is not your property when I'm productive like my own. Give, grow room, breathe basic lights and her liberty free from insecurity the world projecting onto me please not trouble me. When I am focused the future is already know this fighting against the corruption. Let's go to turn up in my top is one I I wrote this. Not. I want to keep making sex positive beautiful music about joy and freedom. I want us to embrace our own pleasure just as much as we embrace our own pain I want us to celebrate the authentic nuanced multidimensional aspects of our human existence. Rather, than perform false narratives of degrading sexuality in order to feel accepted or loved and another strategy that I take in my music, it's a combat. The misogyny that exists on the Airways is to visually depict the very word I wish we lived in in the music video for my song. See me through which is like A. Queer electronic arm song I cast of my dear friends, Anya and diva to play the role of the lovers because they're married in real life. But what you don't know is that they also behind the camera consenting directing the entire video. Music should be safe and accessible for all to experience. It's not about losing the sex of or swags that music has it's about writing messages that infused tenderness and positivity into music that motivates US and challenges us. And while we musicians absolutely have the responsibility to make music that isn't disempowering the consumers can be part of the change to firstly we get to choose which songs we WANNA. Mute and which song you WANNA turn louder. We get to see I respect myself enough to say I don't want to listen to this and I don't want this to be in anybody else's space either. Secondly we can simply ask ourselves does this music or this message contributes to the oppression of somebody else why am I tolerate eating and finally we can all be choosing to make playlists or DJ music that provides the right vibe or mood that we're looking for in that moment without the problematic messaging. Why does this matter because it's teaching? Algorithms are streaming systems in our world exactly what it is that we do want to listen to. Creating long-term. And a feedback mechanism that the entire industry. This is not a message. For, just a small group of people, this is a message that affects everybody because when we protect and liberate our most vulnerable genders we liberate everybody.
Rosamund Pike on new movie 'Radioactive'
"There is a wonderful movie for you to see right now called radioactive and it stars my guest Rosamund Pike as Madame Curie. So this is amazing. Russ welcome. Welcome to Nice. It's really really nice to see you I haven't seen you since. We'll know know exactly when you were pregnant. So I guess that son is walking around now being five or six years old exactly that he's five and he's he's little stuntmen so. I've got. Might follow his mother in some way. Yes. He vote him falling through a very big high everyday but. I won't go into that anyway in in watching this movie, which is so beautifully done to me. It's just Marchan as director and putting what this life is in not at all stodgy bio kick manner. No, it's great and I'm looking at you and I'm thinking of your journey first movie bond girl. End of the day, I can remember you in that saying this line probably going to get this. Wrong but it was I know all about you 007. Sex for, dinner. Death for breakfast CEST. Bang on I, remember it to. And now you're Madame Curie. Yeah this is no other bond girls done this I feel that I could say that. Madame Curie. Yes. No they may we'll try now but it's too late. This might might be true. Yes. She she. I mean, yeah, she was full medical creature I'm glad you picked up on I mean. I couldn't you couldn't make conventional bio-pic about Madame Curie she was too much of a rebel in a she was unruly element in has she discovered to unruly and she was Nanri element. So you needed margin direct with a bit of rock and roll and kind of approach that was going to kind of exploded the promises will she's got that and she's got kind of your mischief. We know are remember when I first met you I thought well. She's going to be quite imperious. You know she's she does stage working the said you're just mad. Which is which is Great. Mischief I really love that would be to mischief is a great great word condemn. Yeah I had a I had a birthday party recently thought was the kind of that was the code of conduct for the Party. was mischief not s mischief. As it should be you know even in a pandemic, but you know I wanna go back to this because again I said this radioactive is not like any bio pic I've seen why is that? What attracted you to it? You know everybody would say, yes, I'd love to play manicured. There's been a movie made back in the forties we're greer Garson, and Walter Pidgeon were claimed that but it has that look of okay. This is regulation they're not there seems like. In radioactive that all the rules breath. School is it. You know it's GonNa. Be Poked Science.

Yes, she's the right spurious and we can dress this up than people can think we're giving them some chased food period drama. Deliver you know we explode the be the boundaries and I felt that with anyone. Who any character who could legitimize you to to flush Ford it would be someone like Mary Carey with her brain, which would have had an inkling would've had an inkling of what the future could hold with this discovery of the phenomenon of radioactive not so. It was exciting to me. And I probably could even. Could have been pushed found from my case even.
Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong
"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason. For. Inciteful pair of interviews about Hong Kong's politics. Look for our sister show the economy asks my colleague and mckelway spoke to activist Nathan Law and to Regina Yip a Pro Beijing member of Hong.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.
Trump Sends Well Wishes to Ghislaine Maxwell
"In our politics lead now. Even some trump republicans trump supporting Republicans expressed outrage yesterday when President trump extended well-wishes to Glenn Maxwell Maxwell has been charged with conspiring with the now dead pedophile. Jeffrey Epstein to Sexually Abuse Teenage Girls. Trump and maxwell have been photographed together, but in an interview with CNN another former Epstein business partner said that the two knew each other well as C.. N. N.'s Pamela Brown reports for us now. President Trump's return to the briefing room took an unexpected turn with his response to a question about g Lane Maxwell arrested earlier this month on multiple charges related the sexual abuse of. Girls by her longtime companion convicted sex offender. Jeffrey! Epstein she has pleaded not guilty. I haven't really been following it too much i. just wish your well. Frankly the warm wishes for Maxwell are bringing renewed scrutiny to trump's relationship with her and Epstein who government officials say died by suicide in his jail cell last year after being charged with sex trafficking, some Republican lawmakers reacted to trump's comments on twitter. Saying this is unacceptably obtuse for a woman accused of the most morally depraved of crimes, and she is despicable and he needs to. To say that I've met her numerous times over the years especially since I lived in Palm. Beach and I guess they lived in Palm Beach but I wish her well whatever it is. Trump says he's known Epstein. Since the late eighties and pictures from the ninety show the president with Maxwell who became Epstein girlfriend associate, and allegedly his madame, one picture shows trump with maxwell and nineteen ninety-seven, then again in early two thousand at trump's palm beach property mar-a-lago with his wife. Melania, and Epstein another picture shows trump with maxwell. At New York fashion show, and then again with model Naomi Campbell epsteins one time business partner Steven Hoffenberg who's been eighteen years in jail for a Ponzi scheme told CNN today. There's no dispute. They knew each other well adding he liked her, and she liked him and a two thousand two interview with New, York, magazine, trump showered praise on Epstein, calling him quote terrific guy and saying he's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said he likes beautiful women as much as I and many of them are on the younger side. After I've seen was arrested last year. Trump had a different tune claiming he kicked Epstein now. Go years before. He was a fixture in Palm Beach. I had a falling out with them a long time ago. I don't think I've spoken to him for fifteen years I wasn't a fan. Prosecutors say Maxwell went into hiding over the last year as more victims came forward, alleging she learned them in and groom them to be sexually abused by Epstein alleged victim. Virginia Jufri has claimed Maxwell recruited her in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety nine, while she was a locker room attendant at trump's mar-a-lago resort, though she never alleged any wrongdoing by the president. And Jake. The comments at the president made about Maxwell caught some White House officials off guard now. He is expected to brief again shortly, so we'll see if he addresses this then.

"madame" Discussed on Classic Movie Musts
"The sequence rises to a climax with a grandiose cry from the elderly noblewoman. The ladies are growing faint break. The windows does and in perfect synchronization to the wall to measures a retinue of liveried servants smash guilt shares through the tall glass ASP paneled. Doors curtains blow upward into the chandeliered ballroom and breezes sweep through. The sequence is endowed with the enchantment that viewer response to without question when her drunken husband appears calling Emma's name and weaving his way. Roughly across the dance dancefloor toward her she runs out of the Chateau and the bleakness of the next scene. As a striking contrast to the Dream Ball one had just witnessed missed. Emma sit silently beside her shamefaced spouse in a trundling carriage a swift close up of her face shows her brimming is retaining some of the past sparkle in the darkness. The sequence is beautifully poetic a moment. That truly symbolizes Minnelli's filmmaking style style in trying to bring Madame Bovery to the screen. The filmmakers had to contend with the obvious problems of how not to treat adultery explicitly and even the few conjugal love scenes had to be toned down in accordance with the codes guidelines on scenes of passion and to make sure here to present it attractively. Perhaps even more difficult was the obstacle of justification the main reason the story of 'em Bovery Bovery had been seen as dangerous in the hands of girls and married women in eighteen fifty seven after all is that she is a sympathetic figure and her adulterous. Forays are understandable in the context of her marriage. If the imperial prosecutor managed to miss the fact that adultery is shown shown to be no more satisfying than marriage in the novel than so presumably would most readers at the time Manelli and his team encountered entered the same problem. In the form of the Hays Code Edict that adultery must not be justified in the novel Charles is in many ways an ideal it deal husband. He is a dutiful breadwinner and deeply in love with his wife to the point of being oblivious to her faults and misdeeds. Of course this greatly contributes to the books subversive edge since he is the very sort of husband a girl is supposed to pine for and yet his wife remains dissatisfied to the point of suicide. The film's most striking departure from the book. Is that both major characters undergo radical transformation. Then it was not enough. That be made more neurotic than sexy. In order to make sure the film would not appear to justify adultery. Charles had to become an attractive figure. This was accomplished on every level. He has played by van. Heflin a handsome actor who served as a romantic lead in in many pictures during the same era. What is more? The plot itself is greatly modified so as to make adultery clearly unjustified as well as unattractive in the film when he asks Emma to marry him. Charles explicitly warned her of his flaws. He says Emma. Listen To me before you say anything. I'm easy to get along with and I'll be a good husband but I'm not very exciting. This speech does not just serve the purpose of spelling things out for the more feeble minded members of the viewing public. It also demonstrates a degree of candid it self awareness on the part of Charles. Which means both at Emma knows full? Well what she is getting. And furthermore that what she is getting is is not in fact the genuinely boring completely unselfish aware Charlotte depicted in the novel. She replies not altogether implausibly. Charles your the handsomeness most distinguished man in the world. The scene departs from the book in a number of ways what the changes more significantly difficultly indicate is that in the film. Emma can have no subsequent cause for complaint and therefore her adultery appears entirely unjustified and justified and even unjustified label no matter how charming beautiful and French Louis Jordan may be the discrepancy between him and Van Heflin mere nuance compared to the bridgeable chasm between the dull devoted. Charles and the Ray Fish Rudolph of the novel it is also worth noting that it is not clear from the book. What Charles looks like the Minnelli Madame Bovery presents a Charles who is good looking and solidly self aware? He is not without flaws certainly but they are not the same ones depicted in the novel. The ballroom scene scene for instance is in both book and film the One occasion on which Emma manages briefly to taste the sort of life. She has imagined herself. Living in the scene in the film Charles gets drunk and makes a fool of himself loudly claiming his right to dance with his wife who's busy blending in with the aristocratic crowd out in the same scene in the novel. Emma forbids him to dance specifically to preclude his embarrassing her. It is though she had seen Minnelli's film them and we're trying to avoid the mistakes her cinematic counterpart makes Charles's drunken humiliation in. The film. Certainly makes better cinema than what Flaubert Mbare describes in his book but this added aspect of the scene also emphasizes Emma's perfidious neglect of her husband along with the ladders active albeit inelegant devotion to her whereas in the book he remains inertly passive. The spectators. Sympathy isn't necessarily thrown thrown toward the awkward. Charles rather than the ambitious fickle Emma similarly motivated changes are to be found in almost every frame of the film one notable omission is notorious scene in which Emma Leeann have their first assignation in a hired carriage. That Rove's around ruin as they presumably despite sort themselves inside all of these changes made in the plot of Madam Bovery in Nineteen forty-nine demonstrate the motion picture production code performed a a singular function from the nineteen thirties into the nineteen sixties in American film to that of the Judicial Prosecution of novels in France a century earlier earlier except that it was much more efficient in part because it was much less public what is so exceptional about Minnelli's MME bovery is that it takes a story already filled with historical ironies and adds its own peculiar twentieth century. Twist the most notorious literary trial of the nineteenth century involved a novel whose central theme is the dangerous consequences of reading eating too much MINNELLI's film opens with one of those ornate text panels often used in historical films. Sporting the legend agent in eighteen fifty seven. There was a scandal in Paris and a trial before the law a book had been published the factual inaccuracies. Accuracy is begin here of course since a book had not actually been published by the time. The film was made MME Bovery had become a great classic which was why the film had been proposed in the first place therefore the idea that the novel had created a scandal and prompted a lawsuit had come to seem ludicrous even as the reasons for the trial retained full currency. The nineteen forty nine film partake of what might be termed chronological chauvinism a view of history in which the strangeness of the past is at once demonized and trivialized and we of the present are ultimately invited to congratulate ourselves for living in such repression. Free Times the history history of censorship lends itself with particular ease to this sort of approach and Minnelli's Madam Bovine represents an especially salient salient example of absurdity despite MGM's motto art for Art's sake and despite James Mason's Florid speeches about the ultimate triumph of art and truth. The film could be made only once aflao bears. Art had been transformed in a way that the imperial prosecutors cuter and the Hays Code officials would have fully approved now. It's time for our buzz from the back lot segment and this week let's get into some studio machinations in Madame ovary producer Pandraud s Berman Director Vincent Minnelli and screenwriter. WH- Robert Artery. Finessed the issue of Emma ovaries adultery. Not Not only by dealing with the lovemaking very discreetly but by framing the story with flowers trial as we discussed in our feature presentation as flaw bear. James Mason Mason explains to the judges. Why Mme Ovary is a tragic figure? Who pays dearly for her sins? Berman Minelli had Lana Turner in mind for for the role of Emma but industry censors suggested that Turner's erotic screen persona might not make her the wisest choice they suggested. that the filmmakers choose someone someone with a more ladylike image. Jennifer Jones had won an academy award for playing a saint in the song of Bernadette from nineteen forty-three but but she also projected a neurotic intensity on screen that Berman Manelli thought would be right for the part. MGM began negotiations with David. o cells nick to whom Jones was under contract sales neck. Like the idea but on the condition that MGM also use two of his contract players in the film both playing ovaries lovers Lewis. You're Dan and Swedish actor of Kline who made his American film debut in Madam Bovery Name of Christopher Kent Ben Heflin playing Emma's husband was the only mgm contract player to play a leading role role. In Madame ovary cells. Nick Jones's mentor and soon to be husband was not involved in the production of Madame bovery but as usual usual he tried to micromanage every aspect. Firing off lengthy daily memos on everything from the script to the shape of his beloved eyebrows. Berman and Menelik gave in on the eyebrows and ignored the rest. The High Strung Jennifer Jones mean mile was delivering an exquisite performance. But sometimes she would get too deeply into character in a scene with the little girl playing her daughter. The girl refused to be affectionate towards Jones. Jones Jones reacted by running off the set crying. She doesn't like me. She thinks I'm terrible. Nobody likes me. Not only were M. ovaries neurosis mirrored by the film's is leading lady. They also reflected the turmoil of MINNELLI's private life as his wife. Judy garland collapsed into a mental breakdown and Manelli was too involved vault the film to give her the attention she required the production values for mme ovary whereas lavish MGN's new austerity system would allow the art department recycled the studios English village set into a French. One so cleverly. That Madame Ovary was nominated for an academy award for Art Direction. Shen and set design if the elegant furnishings and Emma's wardrobe were a tad too grand for provincial French society well that was the MGM GM way and as it happened they suited MS grandiose fantasies. They certainly suited the centerpiece of MME ovary. The breathtaking ballroom sequence Manila planned it as carefully as any production number in his musicals. He had composer Miklos Rosa compose. What Manelli called eight neurotic waltz us with an accelerating tempo to which Jones and your Dan world around in a dazzling vertiginous? Dance the camera swirling with them faster and faster master and finally Manella said that it was among the most difficult sequences he ever directed. That concludes our episode on Madame Bovery. I would love to hear what you think of this..

Outstanding Drama series were better call. Saul bodyguard game of thrones killing egos is our pose succession. This is us. Yes you're wrong. Okay one of those really a show which winner was game of thrones which surprised me because everybody hated this last year. It was like an overarching like wow you change. TV Go. I agree good job. I would think right. This is us because it's supposed to be deeper. Whatever I saw this is us. It's about like siblings and there's three different. One is a fat woman and all all her whole story. Line is just about being fatty. I think she does other things but be fat not didn't show. It's really like what people were like well so the people were crying about. They say there's a lot there's tons of crying. I don't watch it but apparently yeah. It's that and then there's like this black kid adopted black. Kids Line is usually what I saw like. Maybe a season Susan. His story's really interesting. The White Guy is the most boring person on earth focusing on them and then they go into the back story of how the parents met and we're talking doc and that's Mandy Moore Mandy Moore's mom and she does a great job so two of those timelines I was like I want more of this and the other two. I'm like that's what I heard. That's what I heard. They were like I I mean I'm here for like seventy four percent of the show but I cry every episode and I'm like well that fair like a lot afterward through so that's the serious were adults. Adults drama section yeah was part of serious where adults yes okay people raping murdering. Don't put it under comedy and back the more for the rape and murder. I think they should have a separate one for fantasy because there is so much fantasy stuff and maybe maybe like animation in falls under that or something enemies like so different. It is how he's crafted. I guess but like I think there could be like a fantasy moment now. Outstanding Standing Comedy Series Berry Lee bag the good place the marvelous Mrs Mazel Russian Doll Shits Creek. It's about Janis. Shit and I guess he owns a creek. I'm sorry Russian doll was a comedy but it's not a drama right wakes up every day and she's like yeah again. It's not funny. That was hell hell. I don't understand why did you laugh at anything. I left a little bit like like when the first episode where she like died like forty times unlike seconds I I was like these are hard to measure here against each other comedy was it was pretty well. The pros did it and they picked fleabag which also want lead actress in a comedy writing in a comedy directing in a comedy big big day for Fleabag fleabag. Apparently it's great didn't once though take the time to talk to me directly during her many many speeches but okay whatever I wish on it didn't Redo crave studied it but all right everything's not for me is one of the greatest things I haven't seen the EPA I ju.

I guess is doing the same but that was like fall down crazy. That makes you really scared for the country right yeah for sure he didn't win. I think he would have won if it came out. If the EMMYS came out the day after one of those shocking episodes yeah yeah yeah but then and you're like the world's shifting you kind of let it go because you have to keep going you have to live on Saturday night. Live long and there were no shame Gillis references a- rating for variety series your winner was last week tonight with John.

Can't it's supposed to play three times that that now but I think you are. I wanted to watch it over and that's the fun of choosing one adventure. That's why I liked the books and maybe they also gave it to that because you since you watched him multiple times it's more clicks which is more money which means like yeah that is like a more lucrative style of making things eventually yeah but I didn't. I didn't WanNa see those scenes again. I mean you hate it by the end choices that I had to make what tedious and sound like. I'm going to produce this again. Fuck off right well.

"madame" Discussed on Timesuck with Dan Cummins
"Did they'll Fain try and intervene on this particular slaves behalf? You know, was the doctor the sadists and Madame lottery. One of his victims was this man, beaten, this other slaves, so terribly that, you know, Delfin thought that she had to free this person. We may never know. But again, it's it is interesting that there were no rumors of ill-treatment between Madame lottery and her slave during her first two marriages, no rumors of her ever mistreating slaves prior to Dr lottery, and then the rumors start around the same time. She takes her husband to court for spousal abuse by she frees a slave when she when she does that all makes you wonder what was really going on after the official separation Delfin remained to the Royal street address. Her. Her husband is still comes and goes from this place, they're separated, but not like entirely apart. You know, we'll see later this really infamous fire that happens. He was at the residence when all the shit went down that led to their legend. Yeah. So okay, we're gonna we're gonna move forward. Chronologically here a little more in a bit. But we're going to detour into some voodoo who do context that adds to her legend, and and we're going to stay in the same period for quite some time. So how about we hop on out of today's time suck time line? Good job soldier made it back. Ben. Right now, we're going to get to some some gruesome stories accounts of the story, the this pillar of New Orleans horror lore, trillion or stand. Why the accounts of Delfi murder so graphic, and frankly, so strange we have to understand things about voter and hoodoo and and a good way to get into New Orleans voodoo hoodoo is to introduce an important historical contemporary of del fiends, Marie Lavoro the voodoo Queen of New Orleans if you've ever been there, they all kinds of stuff dedicated her certainly a future times that candidate Marie Catherine Lavoro again known as voodoo Queen of New Orleans born in New Orleans September tenth eighteen o one. Just thirteen years. I guess fourteen years after Madame dill Fien, she was the illegitimate daughter of a Freeman of color and Creel mother her connection with Delfin, not well documented, however, it is referencing some dark New Orleans folklore, which I think has to have added to the dark legend of Madame Delphine one story stems from New Orleans painter Ricardo. Who's Daniel.
"madame" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"That painting of napoleon and it's almost like they're doing a shot reverse shot of the noddy and madame and it's it's almost like awful break in the one eighty rule because it doesn't feel like he's the surly doing true shot reverse shot just because of the way that the painting is framed in both of those it's almost like someone's like he's doing more of like a almost like a thirty degree difference between the two of them rather than doing a fuller departure between the two characters i'm not sure if i know how to properly explain like the the meson sign of of how he's doing it it just feels very off putting the way that he's going back and forth and of course that he is doing shot reverse shot between them because at this point they are separated so it's it really kind of shows you know because we've had them frame together so much even in that shot i was talking about earlier when she said i don't love you i don't love you you know he's on one side of the door she's on the other but we see that that separation with the door it's almost like a split screen effect but we see them on screen at the same time here we are getting one person that another person so they are separate separate spaces though the space is an right i know what you're talking about but i did not get that affect but perhaps if i focus on it you know i will but i know that sequence that you're talking about and the way that she's talking about on the on the right side of the painting as this on the left side of the painting that and police here yeah right i'm like oh okay and yeah and then the general saying at one point you know like the polian only made two mistakes and you know one was waterloo and i'm trying to remember what the other one was something about it's best to escape from love or something along those lines and he wants to one of the hearts of the film is in that sequence i believe what he talks about that their relationship is only superficially superficial that's one of the keys to the film because we're seeing the way these to live in very luxurious surroundings and there's so much formality and so much so much such a shining surface to everything to candelabras the all this luxury and it's all superficial and what's going on now with louise since she met donati is something that is going on inside of her and has very little to do with the surface i don't think he can really grasp what's going on with her or or his perception doesn't allow him to understand what's going on what's going on with her you know what i mean like he just there's a scene where he goes around closing all the windows and while he's doing he's saying president that they will fight for their love or whatever but and he will stay there and stand with her and fight for their marriage and for their love right it saying exact but that's it exactly paula that's it he doesn't know he doesn't understand her and he doesn't understand anything about what's going on inside of her but he has an idea of how things should be and he thinks that what's best for everyone is to continue on i'm the path that they're on he says because she she says she wants to escape and what i'm thinking what's going on is that for once in her life she's gone from this frivolous superficial character to like feeling real genuine emotion real genuine love for somebody and she's kind of afraid of that and maybe that's what she's trying to scape from is that is coming face to face with that but he thinks that what she's really wants to escape four is that she's a barest about the whole fainting episode and he says that oh understands that that that proves that she loves him is the fact that she wants to escape that shows her good breeding and it has nothing to do with good breeding he doesn't get what she's going through that sequence of him closing the windows and closing the drapes i mean we're going to get that opposite later on when she's almost death's door any probably thinks that she's just affecting this whole thing but her heart is broken at this point later on in the film but at this point him closing the curtains and closing the windows if feels like and i was trying to.
