"On. They're using this to show us. I think in some sense this again goes back to even vans question. Right more fundamentally how does through take place right. So we see in turner's work these three periods way in which is workers dramatically changing. The assemblages are changing. We're seeing how paintings are produced in one period that differ from the seconds optionality paying are shifting the connections of the painting are the night the That the third synthesis consumption consummation necessarily consuming but that that aspect is changing to right the intensities the shift periods. I think in that third one. They're locating where were they say. Like turner has something sort of like Ancient about more silica talking. If you're right it's not so much. Just take on like what turns out says something. Esoteric arcane right. It's that once again breakthroughs taking place so this isn't tom. This has never happened before. Rather were actually seeing in turner's work A skit is opening up a line of this haven t place. Yeah it's so. The order been put them up. I should be thought of. When they're talking here three periods. I think then got slightly out of order. I don't think he intended to. I think it's just how they uploaded. It's the first one is declared boat. The second is the boat in the storm and the third is Actually it's a castle. I believe in outer scotland on top of the hill is actually what he's painting. It doesn't even matter because it moves from this absolute and total. This is you're able to see it to conceptualize it and it's like it's just stunning The first canvases are into the world catastrophes. This is a boat in a storm. That's the first image. It is that But that's just what it is and it doesn't it doesn't convey. There's almost a beauty to the to the storm in clarity that almost seems peaceful but the rage and the feeling the emotion of the intensities poor through and the others in ways that is just extraordinary and the lake in the third one. That pierces the middle That canvas broken suddenly. It's the i mean. He gets heavily into this when he goes over francis bacon but the sensation of taking in the art and hatless was created as just beautiful. Everything becomes mixed confused and it is here that the breakthrough or the breakdown occurs that that is the good stuff. I'm a fan or any questions. Comments thought salt move onto the next year. Strange anglo american literature from thomas hardy from d. h. Lawrence to malcolm lowry from henry miller to gain bergen jack cadillac men. Who know how to leave to scramble. The codes to 'cause flows to circulate to traverse the desert of the body without the overcome a limit they shatter a wall capitalist barrier and of course they failed to complete the process they never cease failing to do so the neurotic impasse again. Closes the daddy mommy of epilepsy. America the returned to the native land or else the perversion of the exotic territoriality than drugs. Alcohol or worse still an old fascist dream never as delirium oscillated more between its two poles but through the passes and the triangles schizophrenic flow moves irresistibly sperm river drainage flame genital mucous or a stream of words do not let themselves be coded a libido that is too fluid to viscous violence against syntax concerted destruction of the signifier nonsense erected as a flow polly voracity that returns to haunt all relations. How poorly the problem of literature is put starting from the ideology that bears or from the co option of its by a social order. People are co opted not works which will always come to awake asleep in youth and which never sees extending. Their flame has for ideology. It is the most confused notion because it keeps us from seizing the relationship of the literary machine with field of production and the moment when the emitted sign breaks through this form of the content that was attempting to maintain the sign within the order of the signifier yet. It has been a long time since ingles demonstrated already apropos balzac. How an author is great. Because he cannot prevent himself from tracing flows and causing them to circulate flows that split asunder the catholic and despotic signifier of his work and that necessarily nurture nourish a revolutionary machine on the horizon. That is what style is rather the absence of style. Ason tactic grammatical the moment when language is no longer defined by what it says even less by what makes it a signifying thing but by what causes it to move to flow to explode. Desire for. Literature is like schizophrenia. A process and not a goal of production and not an expression. It's the part where we solicit people would achieve group right. Well i was gonna say He's literally here talking about the author and the others great because he cannot prevent himself from tracing pleasant causing them to circulate Just mentioned saturday if you want to join our literature group. They're going over how the author is perceived through the eyes of Vaccine and come on. Gimme gimme stop. Barks eighteen and i really do like literature here because there i think the right like. It's not a question of fighting over whether terms ideology option right literatures machine these losing lottery using that word very directly here as a machine does engage in production right it reorganizes lows reorganizes or other changes can actions changes distributions changes subjects heavies producing new intensities. Right his. this is going to be important. In chapter four we start talking about The potentialities of our of our science right house its analysis is concerned with those who in how is not so much question team but the actual Sort of like the production. The sheen's if you like how that's going to be more for Analysis whether or not people.

"Right. Jiji wanna read. The dog and i'll be rooks k. This this sounds will talk. This is the stupidest is in the entire universe he does. He hit sparks lose hate. Sparks hates dogs. Actually allot check. The sounds way more kinky tonight. I expected early. Someone is at the front door. So i have no idea and believe. That's the pizza. Guy was a guy on a segway scooter. I of want to throw a rock from my window and hit him. I will continue from where i left off which was actually quite a great line and i was on a roll. So let's try to start that again. Malcolm lowry's says of his work. It's anything you wanted to be so long as it works quote. It works to believe me as i have found out a machinery but on condition that meaning be nothing other than us that it become a firm principle only if we have at our disposal imminent criteria capable of determining legitimate uses as opposed to the illegitimate ones that were late us instead of two a hypothetical meaning and reestablish a kind of transcendence so great paragraph despite the dargo. He's always excited. The last sentence here is the one that is this paragraph Summed up very nicely. I basically we need to at our disposal find at our disposal. Discover imminent capable of determining legitimate uses as opposed to illegitimate ones that relate use instead to a hypothetical meaning and reestablish a transcendence their entire concept here very much boiled down to the idea of classic psychoanalysis and material psychotic a materialist. Psychiatry coming through in this line. I really like it. But i'll leave it. Open any questions. Any comments on this is. I'm going to start talking about it from the top in a moment but i figure i'll open it up the way they halting meaning other than us Sounds pretty pragmatist to me. But yeah i'm but i'm the first guy and also it. Sounds like dewey and james and we all know that the lowest love james especially and As well as some. I would say because for him. It's the same thing that there is no inherent meaning out there but the produced by action and our Inaction within the world a with the outside world sort of break down just a little bit because again the three syntheses are passed through here. Very quickly Because again they've talked about this throughout this entire book so far they've sort of gone over them a few times right now. They're recapping very quickly by it's necessary for us to understand them. The three syntheses to say again is the connective destructive and jumped The first step is connection which at the same time of connection happening also produces so wonderful little thing and then there's disconnection things disconnect and then there's the conjunction which is the result of this the where the subject sort of comes up the entire thing the sort of gathering of these as they say it represents nothing means nothing is the syntheses themselves aren't like a thing that has meaning that has some greater that we're trying to attach to it so i think one of the reasons that they very much went in this method i can't assign Any sort of larger scale. Meaning or god or signification to the disjunction the connective in the conjunction. Like aside from the words a bit but not the things like. It's very tough and so as such it. All we can do is talk about how it works. That's it it's a what is it produce. How does it. How does it operate what does it do. Which i think is really great. Am i far off. I'm gonna just keep poking webcam how how was what i said. Far off the generally good you want to add a little bit. Come up seems fine. Let's say i sometimes try to avoid this grinding. Grinding authorities is. I don't know what to separate my unfolds and dare doffing Tari think from it fair. Let's i think the best part is we're trying to find the words to communicate things that they said have no meaning and can't really be talked about so it's another reason this parts fun. Does anyone questions. Let's i ask that james anything here. Michael ribka anyone bill. Free type in the chat or a mute yourself where here to answer because a big deal here in this paragraph insists on the others. And it's going to be something that they're going to call out in the next couple imminent criteria what is imminent criteria mean to this post grass. I wanna take that imminent. In the way that it isn't on the outside so it most of the time imminent is the counterpart to transcend and so we have something that is inside of the structure for example. We are looking at all when you analyzing a work of art. You're trying to analyze it most of the time at least in visual art through it imminent criteria. How's it structured. What does the composition and not From the outside so what. The a artists tried to express his feelings. Or is it a commentary on on the maybe. The social political aspect is All this stuff maybe like oedipus something from the outside that is giving meaning but rather how it is from the insight. Giving meaning bush chris so kind of back to the top of the paragraph meaning of the unconscious is outside of it while its function uses internal in imminent I think to me. I read the the top of the paragraph as them saying that desire really does not give a shit about meaning like at all like it's it could not like it's it's it's the wrong side of the country. This is desires a river here and over there on another planet maybe is sort of meaning happening. Could not matter doesn't affect it instead. It's desires question is oh but is this thing. Do i think of it like a like a child. I actually a child is a very good example of a lot of stuff. They talk about the child. When you introduce a three year old to say the president they may say something embarrassing. They'll just say they don't give a fuck who this person is. They know it's a person and they're like oh what would you do hung there. That's like they're really curious. Just want to know about that person..

"Of difficulty talking about it. I really like how you phrase that can i. I'm with you. And i like how you're putting it so it's just yes jack i i g- rocket i just can't explain it. Jack likes that. He learned a new word. He didn't know the word rock. Everyone should know the word rock. It's a good word on the no. The i called up. I'm just making a day. I only know the iconic beverage drunk so old old sci-fi term that means to understand something For lack of imminently without reason without thought i intuitive understanding jaro king it said i believe it's robert heinlein. We having this discussion earlier about where it comes from. He drops just during out of rum. Sugar and hot water. Explain it stop Next paragraph psychoanalysts are bent on producing man. Abstractly that is to say ideologically for culture. It is oedipus who produces man in this fashion and who gives a structure to the false movement of infinite progression and regression. Your father and father's father snowball gathering speed as it moves from oedipus all the way to the father of the primal hord to god and the paleolithic age it is oedipus who makes us men for better or for worse. Say those who make fools of us. All the tone may vary but the message remains basically the same. You will not escape at your choice is between the neurotic outlet and non neurotic outlet the tone. Maybe that of the scandalized psychoanalyst. The second is cop. Those who do not ballot. The imperialism of oedipus are dangerous deviants leftists who ought to be handed over to social and police repression. They talked too much and are lacking in analogy. Dr gerard mental dr stefan. What kind of disquieting play. Words is it that can make the analyst of promoter of analogy or is there the psychoanalyst is priest the pious psychoanalyst. Who has forever chanting the incurable insufficiency of being. Don't you see that at a saves us from oedipus it is our agony but also our ecstasy depending on we live at neurotic or limit structure. It is the mother of the holy faith j. m. or the techno psychoanalyst the reform psychoanalyst obsessed with the triangle who wraps the splendid gifts of civilization inside oedipus identity manic depression and liberty in an infinite progression through oedipus the individual learns to live the triangular situation the token of his identity and at the same time he discovers sometimes a depressive mode sometimes in motive exaltation his fundamental alien nation his irremediable solitude the price of his liberty the basic structure of the edible apparatus must not only be generalized in time so as to account for all the triangular experiences of the child and his parents it must also be generalized in space to include those triangular relations other than parent child relations. Pretty easy paragraph also i do techno psychoanalyst The really. I want to make sure i point out the wonderful joke. They actually make this quite good. I didn't i chuckled. head the disquieting plan words. it is that can make the analyst. A promoter of analogy is actually kind of a funny line. Just saying But if you're super into psychoanalysis this is basically them saying fuck it so the short version for various reasons any questions. Any thoughts here in case anyone's untrusted that last quotation concludes the paragraph is from a fella named hawkin are that i'm gonna move to the next paragraph here. We go. this word starts getting fun. The unconscious poses no problem. Meaning solely problems of use. The question posed by desire is not what does it mean but rather how does it work. How do these machines these desiring machines work yours and mine with what sort of breakdowns. As part of their functioning. How did they pass from one body to another. How are they attached to the body without organs. What occurs when their mode of operation confronts the social machines a tractable gear is greece or on the contrary and infernal machine is made ready. What are the connections. What are the disjunction. The conjunctions what use is made of the syntheses. The represents nothing but it produces it means nothing but it works desire makes its entry with general collapse of the question. What does it mean. No one has been able to pose the problem of language except to the extent that linguists and logisticians have i eliminated meeting and the greatest force of language was only discovered once a work was viewed as a machine producing certain effects. Amenable to a certain use. Malcolm lowry says of his work really really really know. It's so fucking wild wild floss for. Give me a second sorry about that. Becoming animal increased signifier.

"This is from michael hoffman's introduction to the string of polls michael hoffman. Who was such a great guide to us. Coincidentally on our rosemary tonks episodes last month. Michael hoffman's basically got three careers running simultaneously. He's a poet. He's a translator. And he's a translator of joseph for off and he would he would see himself in those terms. He feels that he's given over a great chunk of his life Soland career all those things to joseph roth. I just like to read this. This is hoffman's brief exploration of the puzzle of joseph roth. It's rare for an author to make such multiple almost contradictory claims on us as the australian novalis. Joseph roth eighteen ninety four to nineteen thirty nine. As a chronicler of the jazz age you can set him. Alongside scott fitzgerald with malcolm lowry. Great poets of alcoholic decline and his work brings back the world of jewish culture in central europe as much as if the photographer vishnu back. His memorial to the jewel monarchy the emperor of austria and the kingdom of hungary spread over many side and adoring. Novels is a wonderful compliment to measles monumental comedy the man without qualities. Roth is a novelist of exile and of personal destiny and responsibility. A french influenced fabulous te stendal in some versions produced in others and the pros air to hina a poet shenanigan of public pumps and private melancholy but a writer of plots as much as anyone this century each one of roth's thirteen novels doubles and triples presents aspects of two or more of the above like domino or a piece of a jigsaw puzzle the reach and the fullness of these books which are ready long a never denso so heavy is quite extraordinary. They seem to defy literary physics. The barriers between the books come to see just about the least satisfactory thing about the And then elsewhere he says yes. The books all probably spoiled by being rushed but there is in each of them more of worth than in most other books who actually besides wants to exist on a diet only of masterpieces. More seriously. i would argue the innocence. They were never properly separated out. That in them roths. Numerous fables are complected together raw. The like a rubik's cube over many books you will learn about for the worship and fall the neglect the eastern jew and the austrian officer. Exile alcohol the man disappointed by women and the conservative holdout. The some of the books coheres. Here's more than any individual noble. Now i can see literally everyone on. My screen is nodding silently noting. The some of the books coheres. Here's more than indi individual novel cement through that has that been your experience of reading joseph roof. Yeah very much. So and i think a little bit like shakespeare i mean you get something from reading para claes is not the pathak work is it. The how is gonna structural beatty but it. You couldn't have sort of couldn't have one without the other. I mean there were books. So i'm not necessarily desperate to read again but i'm sort of glad that i have been on the journey with a johnny of his life that he i mean he went through quite a lot and i think a liberal is wouldn't necessarily put that into that books and what i like about it he. It's all in there. I think the more you read the richer the weld becomes that you that you went through his work that will like different angles inside his fabulous wealth that he creates ends with every book it does become it becomes stranger mobile phone and Quality to his prose kind of dreamlike quality is a real strangeness. That once you're in the something old stephen. The i can't think of any authorizer has less effects on the reader. So yes. I think the mole of his books. You've read more. You become hooks is not the thing about him is that he is incredibly difficult to place in terms he. You fail a lot of the time. This could be being written in eighteen. Sixty s rather than the nineteen thirties. He's he so different. And this is actually something that hoffmann says in his introduction to the detsky march the his his books onto about consciousness. He says berlin thing he says you know in the way that proosed or faulkner or joyce or the along the great kind of century kind of Modernist writers are about expanding their about less and less than consciences expanding more. He says that his books ross novels are about blatant an undeniable big things at the most attended and lit by tito ross novels and stories always depict great turnings of a life loss love on a career betrayal frustration deaths. And it's an. I love what you say. Caring about the other slightly other worldly nightshirt. But he's the most when you read his letters and you look at his journalism. He's the most worldly writer i mean. He's extrordinary he's a he's a proper job ing journalists you know he s a really good point actually he so one of the things. I found crunch this book about him as c. So hard to pin. Because when you think you've pinned him down one way anything hang on the left since being absolutely the opposite of us as well john james woods says about him as a literary critic james wood says about him it's like he learned the lessons of modernism. And then somehow managed travel back in time to area and put them into the nineteenth century l. Which are those incredibly perceptive. Interpretive that they have those kind of ballrooms and agriculture mealy expect for tolstoy amazing meals and meals but then totally they visited by a whole other sensibility than it used to be so Cement through in a sec. You're going to read the beginning of job. But i think because of this thing about about roth being so hard to to pin down and we're so fortunate to have his biographer here. Who's as he said to me. I've just written one hundred thousand words about this and you expect me to do it in two minutes. I do care. And i've got to talk. So could you give us a quick biographical sketch of the life of joseph. roth had. This is a real whistle-stop tour and think i've got it down so about two minutes. I will do my best case. Surge as rough writer who wrote over a dozen novels.

"Because he had a weird little shrine full of clippings about kaiser which you would not expect one of the leading social realist and arco syndicalist authors of his day right to have yeah unless he really was a lost prince or another variety. He's the he's the lost half brother of vaulter raton now. The weimar era german official like a pretty important one. I think for foreign minister of weimar germany Could he have been the 'illegitimate' offspring either kaiser homes father with an orchestral second with some stage actress or the father of Of minister vaulter unnecessary. See lots of theories where he's a celebrity and a one point. Life magazine was reported to have offered a five thousand dollar reward for information leading to the Intellectual capture of of betrayal and although prop. That's probably am just. A rumor started in the mexican press to generate interest in his work. Did anybody ever suggest that it might be ser- francis bacon suffering are low now six fifty years old so this was a mystery time and one that that was in. The newspaper in nineteen forty-six as houston is shooting sierra. Madre in mexico this halcrow tight-lipped halcrow guy who keeps showing up on set saying that. He's he's trayvon's agent and watching everything It becomes just common knowledge among the crew that this is in fact trailing and houston. I in fact didn't believe it and to to the rest of it to the end of his life in his memoirs always said. I was never sure that that guy was trained but that immediately became common knowledge on the crew that the train was hanging out here undercover as his own agent and when the movie came out it was a big hit. Suddenly the spotlight turned to him both in america and in mexico and stateside he interferes production. Was he like monkeying with the script. His agent he'd be like in my book. I had to say book of my client. The cliven no apparently he just kept his head down he was he was exactly the way you would expect to reclusive author to act on the set which maybe was the problem But he was just there for free craft services. That's right he's always hanging around craft eating all the good breakfast burritos as as they come up. But can't you forensically just figure out where the money is going. Well that's what happens so after the movie came out. Suddenly this guy's now this before you could. So he had written a series of novels you throughout his career. He wrote twelve social novels in a series of short stories mostly about mexico and mostly about the oppressed people of mexico. Peasants indians underpaid oil workers. The kind of the common man and upholding their dignity against it's one. It's the steinbeck of mexico against the forces that are laying them low and you know there are certainly a ton of twentieth century. Writers discovered mexico. Is this amazing. Kind of quasi lawless candidates for anything could happen so d. h. lawrence and malcolm lowry and Graham greene all right novels about the the adventures that one can still have in mexico right but mexico loved trayvon in a way that they did not take to all these other author. She got it right for one thing he was. The one that stayed lawrence may have lived on the beach for three years and written the plume serpent and then headed to australia. Whatever but But trayvon stayed and the books were. They seemed authentic. They were clearly not written in spanish in other words right and he never claimed and the book start his book. Start out in germany. His first book is called. It's usually translated the cotton pickers. But i think in germany dir wobbly o. As in the international workers of the world About low paid farmhands and his second book. If you're plotting his journeys across the world is called the ghost ship or sorry the death ship. I think it's usually translated as the death ship and it's about. It's about a coffin ship. Are you aware of this phrase. I had not heard of an omnibus episode. Maybe we should do coffin ships. Maybe i should do one now. You have access. It is not a ship full coffins. It's a ship that has been over insured such that it's worth more dead than it's worth more sunk than alive back in london or or hamburger wherever which means that. It's incredibly unsafe place to work. Nobody cares it's the lowest level of safety. The lowest paid people the scum of the earth walking. Its plan guide. Please start an oil fire. Police crashed into that reef off the coast of senegal. We would love it wink wink. No survivors would be better anyway. So the second book is about the kind of the low life support this kind of ship and then after that the books are set mexico in the jungles and these books originally appeared in german giving credence to the idea that the first two originally appeared in german at some point in his mexican career they started to come out in english and german simultaneously or even in in in north america first and mexico. The his last book is in nineteen sixty. He wrote a novel called oslo. No vall which has never even been translated into english lion the witch and the word. It's an eight fan fan. Pick you walk through a closet and suddenly you're joppa and they're shooting at you and so and this is kind of an off. The rails Many scholarships that it's must be by a different hand because it's this weird kind of torrid d- quasi pornographic A real kind of potboiler. Well he was ninety by the by that jack london. He's he's almost ninety if he's these other guys maybe closer to eighty And so he has this weird career arc where despite producing one of the best novels of the twentieth century. Thanks to humphrey bogart and john. Houston a lot of his work. These weird anarchists marxist leninist social novels and polemical polemical extremely ethical. And not not all that real well written by all accounts just not a great stylist but but an amazing flair for narrative. So that your end the authenticity no some of. It's just the local caller of really knowing this weird milieu of the poverty of the mexican jungle as well. But also apparently just a real real page-turners somerset maugham once called himself the first tier of the second tier writers and you could say the same thing about the train. I think mexico loved him once his works for in translation there when he died his ashes were spread from a plane over southern mexico and a village shop is that where the ass near where the ashes have been deposited actually changed its name adding to the end of its because he because his ashes showed up in their in their coffee one morning. What is there's a little bit of unattractive in in all of us now. Isn't there but as you pointed out you can't write the source novel for one of the biggest movies. Nineteen forty eight without having life and look magazine and come looking for you. And that's exactly what happened. A mexican journalists named luis spoke at one point here. There's a war between two mexican. Newspapers called oi and montana today and tomorrow that are fighting over this and it seems like only always getting in the last word which is very odd. Considering that montana has should have the next day's news you would think but you know. There's a war between oil. An and montana in the mind of every mexican war between oil in montana in my own mind always gets the last word there. I would say that's true. Well i don't know. Does that mean you always do things today and not tomorrow. No but i. But tomorrow. John really has to suck it right today. John is not making any decisions on his behalf. Which is a bummer. It's because you're right now. You're less than twelve hours away from becoming him. It's especially a bummer. When you when. I regard pass john and think about all his how he screwed you over. Screwed me over time and time again. You need to pass independ- forward that's right. why why. why should future john benefit. I'm not benefiting. i'm not him yet. Screw that guy can we've been trying to get omnibus merch to the future ling's for a long time and we just weren't trying that hard doing a great show.

"Seventy seven when a penitentiary was built to house overflow from Huntsville prison the biggest most horrible prison in Texas. For a few years, Rusk had a profitable iron boundary with. A forced laborers. If you'd like to see some of their work visit the Capitol building in Austin between eighty and eighty, five and eighteen eighty, seven rusk prisoners manufactured virtually all of the interior cast iron features in the capital including the columns and connecting ornamental iron probably the stairs in Dallas there's. Iron manufacturing lost its profitability by nineteen ten and the penitentiary was closed in nineteen seventeen. In less than twelve months. However, it was reopened as a hospital for the care of quote Negro Insane. And Nineteen nineteen open arms welcomed alleged mentally unstable people of all races Texas was so progressive with integration. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine, it housed six, hundred people by nineteen, forty six, the population was over twenty, four, hundred inmates. And by Nineteen Sixty, seven Rusk Hospital had an additional facility to house the criminally insane. This is the hospital that Rocky Erickson called home for three and a half nightmarish years. For most people that name Bellevue means one of two things in TV crime dramas, it is the Mental Hospital of New York City. An it's also the city Nebraska where Joe's from. The name conjures images of palatial brooding structures, containing untold horrors and atrocities involving the poor souls who dare not be integrated back into society and that's the city I'm from. And Well Bellevue's history just as the entirety of what passed for mental health in the past a shocking barbaric terrifying. The hospital also represents a genuine attempts to provide treatment for all people. No matter their lot in life. The first public hospital in the USA evolved from an almshouse after New York City a farm near the east. River to have a place to house sick residence. The hospital has for nearly three centuries been open to battle plagues, making credible medical breakthroughs and serve even the most unfortunate and destitute of all of us. And for all the good, you can't deny that darkness that dwelled down at tiled halls. There are tales of pre anesthesia surgeries, the Frankenstein esque experimentation, the infestations of rats who fed on the week. Tacoma the comatose, the pact mortgage, the evil doctors in the onsite execution grounds. However nothing resides in our collective nightmares than Bellevue's notorious psych ward. Opened Eighteen, seventy, six as a pavilion for the insane. This facility was where New York City's so called deranged demented or locked up safely away from the general public. Horrific. Images of padded rooms, screaming lunatics on Gurneys, electroshock therapy where all very real and very common occurrences on the unit. Not a fun place. Over. Time.

"Seventy seven when a penitentiary was built to house overflow from Huntsville prison the biggest most horrible prison in Texas. For a few years, Rusk had a profitable iron boundary with unpaid forced laborers. If, you'd like to see some of their work visit the Capitol building in Austin between eighty and eighty five and eighteen eighty, seven rusk prisoners manufactured virtually all of the interior cast iron features in the capital, including the columns and connecting or iron probably the stairs in Pallister's. Iron manufacturing lost its profitability by nineteen ten and the penitentiary was closed in nineteen seventeen. In less than twelve months however, it was reopened as a hospital for the care of quote Negro Insane. And Nineteen nineteen open arms welcomed alleged mentally unstable people of all races Texas was so progressive with integration. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine, it housed six, hundred people by nineteen forty, six, the population was over twenty, four, hundred inmates. And by nineteen sixty, seven rusk. Hospital had an additional facility to house the criminally insane. This is the hospital that Rocky Erickson called home for three and a half nightmarish years. For most people that name Bellevue means one of two things in TV crime dramas it is the Mental Hospital of New York City. And it's also the city Nebraska where Joe's from. The name conjures images of palatial brooding structures, containing untold horrors and atrocities involving the poor souls who dare not be integrated back into society, and that's the city I'm from. And Well Bellevue's history just as the entirety of what passed for mental health in the past a shocking barbaric terrifying. The hospital also represents a genuine attempts to provide treatment for all people. No matter their lot in life. The first public hospital in the USA, evolved from an almshouse after New York City. A farm near the East River to have a place to house sick residence. The hospital has for nearly three centuries been open to battle plagues, making credible medical breakthroughs and serve even the most unfortunate and destitute of all of us. and. For All the good, you can't deny that darkness that dwelled down its tiled halls. There are tales of pre anesthesia surgeries the Frankenstein esque experimentation, the infestations of rats who fed on the week Tacoma the comatose, the pact mortgage, the evil doctors in the onsite execution grounds. However nothing resides in our collective nightmares than Bellevue's notorious psych ward. In eighteen seventy six as a pavilion for the insane. This facility was where New York City's so called deranged demented or locked up safely away from the general public. Horrific. Images of padded rooms screaming lunatics on Gurneys, electroshock therapy where all very real and very common occurrences on the unit. Not a fun place.

literary references mean anything you want and they don't work on the show I mean I I dared wander off into the soliloquy that I did that I wonder what would have happened watching a bash the sun one

it some don't like it some don't like the drift some do like the draft some love the creativity some can follow with some hated they want you to stick to the facts ma'am but that's who I am so I did it today what what I have been I went into the consul general in Mexico in order to Malcolm Lowry novel right but I remember I gotta go back for a minute to tell you where I'm cut out in order for me to know where I'm at the forest I mean right now of despair from these hearings for more closely is getting away with the evil of Scheffer so clear to me it's like I'm watching the living embodiment of evil Everytime ship opens as dirty mouth I see is shiny cheeks as bye guys I know that there's something wrong there I know there's something wrong there I don't know what it is I just know something deep is wrong there that a man of this low caliber this level of pathology could be doing to that this to this country around thanksgiving time stealing the joy from America simply for partisan reasons so I'm in agony of it so I have to nothing how do I get out of his words that I'm an ex I ask you what are you doing for inspiration man's calling woman Marion so she sings opera for inspiration other people of about other things but I remember I used to lose myself in books lose myself in literature lose myself in books lose myself think of the word lose myself in books but very little stuff is written today that that engages my mind it's too slow there's no interest to me because the writers are not deep and I just don't find anything interesting but I remember as a working class kid I love I hate the word working class everyone works in a working class what it means plain English as a poor kid I don't mean streak poor but we were poor father was an immigrant worked hard we were we were poor by comparison yes she bought a little house thank god an attached house we never went beyond that and that was the world I inhabit it as I said it's interesting that I lived on this side of you union turnpike trump lived on the other side with the detached houses with you he would live in the rich people's houses it wasn't really a big house if you look at trump's boyhood home in Jamaica up there Jamaica states if you want to call it that it wasn't really a big home by today's standards it was a small house today consider a small guest house but in those days it was significant it was significant enough his dad Fred was a successful builder who picked up use nails on building sites to teaches children frugality got to save the nails so don't think he was born with a silver spoon is about this father was a very hard working man but anyway he lived on the other side of this attached house you live in that house I did know him he went to New York military academy I went in the slush to Jamaica high school by the Q. forty four a what do it whatever it was so when I go to college listen to this you can hear the story just you know why men who I am or where I'm coming from I was raised to think poetry was for brought I I can use the word it's set in a polite word today but it was a word that was commonly used amongst the ruffians in those days my father was rather a bit of a ruffian so if I was seen reading anything like this you would call me that name you know so I was afraid to even be seen only a loving music or art that he beat out of me which is set in many ways I don't know whether was said I probably would have wound up in the high school of performing on a fight at a liberal father was not a tough guy in plain English and even courage my artistic nature instead of beating it to death I probably would have been one of those kids like it in here went to the high school of performing on a never went to college I never want to go to school I would go right into acting or something like that hung around with the the Archie for people you know who knows where I'd be today I did a better worse who knows this then this is my fate this is what a long row took me this is where the long road through the dark woods took me I can't look back what about it is that when I be in Hollywood with these were the vermin there that would be better for me I want a better than them anyway so it doesn't matter the end of the road it doesn't matter how you begin is how you end so to make a long story short I go to queens college I take English one a one and my professor was to this day are members face beautiful shock of white hair and piercing blue eyes with a beautiful voice and we read poetry yes I was this kid from kind of the poor background type uncomfortable reading poetry and then he was reading a poem by a man I Simpson's become to adopt A.

"Hi Leonard Maltin and I'm Jesse Molten and you're listening to the mall movies are great pleasure to have our guest today Danny Houston. Thank you for having me well. It's it's a treat to have you here because we're fans. We're unabashed fans who said that before but we tend to have the people on this show that we really admire you are one of them and you've done such extraordinary work as an actor. I just asked you off. Mike like because I didn't want to embarrass myself by not knowing if you ever had formal training as an actor you said no no I actually haven't had the the great luxury and privilege to observe wonderful actress at work peering over my father's shoulder father's formidable formidable laws for actually actually he's a giant. It's impossible impossible to do that but but yeah it was just I was just talking the other day about my memories of of being a young kid in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco watching my father direct man would became and you know for a kid were the blue people there Michael Caine Sean Connery Christopher plummer and and it was just an exciting adventures kipling esque time and and and to see see these guys at work was just incredible treats but also I observe Keanae. Did you always know or was it faded that you would be in this business. There was a sense of doom and and but I I saw my father at times. Believe it or not struggle. you know the amount of money involved to make a film also a circus act around founded Maybe the sometimes the nonsense so so I I love to paint. I like to draw draw and I went to I went. I resisted I I went to I went to art school and I think it was my first source second year in art school I we then went to WHO opening gallery openings and as as part of the course and I I saw people drinking warm white wine and that there was just as much nonsense around the the art world Egos et CETERA CETERA and how to market yourself and and and so finally relented and I went to film school where I went to the London international the National Film School and my first job as as a as a director was was it was for my father he was watching the the tests that they did for credit sequence were filmed that he may call under the volcano and Wonderful Malcolm lowry Albert Finney and and he there were these papers shade dolls from day of the dead and they were very static struggling to how how to make how to make it more exciting to make the shots more exciting and I used to make him depending what country we're in. I'd make him a drink. Drink when we were looking at Daly's at Russia's and in this particular case it was Kubilius Rum and coke and I brought brought him his drink uncanny and he said no no no the coke should only colored the rum and and then he looked at me and he said Danny they might you be interested in directing the title sequence and and it was put the fear of God in me and but of course I said yes and he handed over Gabrielle Figura one of the Great Cinema just gave me hard up again and I shot the sequencing Quinson much to my delight he liked it and Mr Figueroa. Mr Figaro was I as Gabrielle because my father just discovered a steady case at any to come over here. Michelle look look at that now. What is it? It's a steady cam. Wow how is yeah. I don't have to lay tracks as cameras attached the man I can just I don't have to waste all that time and and it was a complicated shopped the it started in the theater and then it came out through a market and into a square with bright light and I said to figure out so how do you how do you light it from darkness to light. How do you do it and Gabriel said it's all a question of balance and and that's the lesson I got from one of the Great Masters assault question a balance but give us a real shot the sequence for me. I I was able to get the camera in there move around these these dolls and and and yeah much to my delight liked it. Oh boy how would you have been I would have been in my early twenties. uh-huh what an Opportunity Man oh man now remember the first film set you visited. It probably is. I'm I'm Mike my understanding of fiction and reality are a little confused in all honesty but I like to say if if one of my father's films measuring stick that I was conceived during a film you may call Freud and born a during the Bible a completely honest and TV them on night of the Iguana but but my my my first the first film that I saw in the editing bay being made was the Bible and and the film starts and for all of us. I guess our our our parents are godlike for for a while at least but in this particular case the the film starts and I hear my father's voices in the beginning God my father is God yeah and then the the film continues and he plays Noah and there he is walking walking into the Ark with all these Animals side-by-side i Alec Wow dad's Noah and then my mother turns up in the film and She's playing Hager and she's she's in the desert dying of thirst. I she's been injected by Abraham and and she's that I have Thurston then she but she has a kid and the kid wasn't me I house thoroughly and and I've been confused ever since my goodness and just to just to sort of sort all of this out so everybody everybody understands and your blood lines are extremely a elite. I think that's the best word for your grandfather was the great Walter Walter Huston one of the finest actors whoever trump the boards as we say and who won his Academy Award as best supporting actor in your father's movie the treasure of the Sierra Madre in a role that your father wrote specifically for him to play and then I father won an Oscar that same year for making the movie so they it was the first ever father's son duo to walk away with ostrich the same evening and and rightly so. Has It ever happened again. I don't think I wouldn't I don't know I don't think the same picture but of course my sister Estrin Jellicoe won an academy award for honor and your your father was he nominated for for that was nominated didn't win right so they came close yeah. They came close. I I remember I remember my father talking about Humphrey Bogart and saying they're having a conversation that he told me he said that he bogey were discussing whole award thing and and how those sort of vulgarity to it and cheapness to having to sell yourself in that way ah but then when when Bogart one his his academy award my father said he seemed inordinately proud yes you can you can be flippant about it until you're GonNa win exactly exactly and your grandmother. Walter's wife was a formidable actress. Yes L. Yes of course my sister Angelica and now my nephew Jack yes which is a tremendous family business. I hoped it sag gives you guys like extra stor credit somewhere to have that many of you in their family rate discount or something I think I wish I could be absolutely picture but I think I attended a press conference for Mr North film that you directed from from a screenplay that was sort of rewritten by your father yes and that's I'm looking my my year nineteen eighty eight and which has now thirty years ago if we can believe that and he was originally to star in it as I understand the he was unable to do yeah he called me on his way to Newport Rhode Island where we filmed it and he said Danny if I if I ever were to fall. Ill are they were to happen. I'd like to have something just to stand by just in case I I saw I'm I'm sure I'm sure you'll be fine but short. If it makes you feel that Isa I'll give Robert Mitchum McCall and so he he called Robert Mitchum and and had him stand by sadly he did become it'll and checked into the hospital at Newport in Newport Rhode Island Island and Robert Mitchum heroically turned up and set to my follow John I'm sorry about the circumstances and dances but when I'm here I'm delighted to be here and when you left the room my father was an intensive care. Basically my father lowered in his oxygen. Mask looked at me and said bigs hoax I ever pulled this. I think talks about the the generosity of the man you know the the the the largeness of spirits and and showing that that that little bravado and at that point speaks volumes yeah. They're so how many there are a lot of terms my dad nigh are annoyed by only because they're used so frequently icon you no legend these people say it for everything you know but truly your family. You've got icons icons and legends and it's always interesting to then here about the human side because especially in my house growing up with this one on you know again. The name Houston loomed large so to then hear stories when someone talks about something personally hell even just saying so Robert Mitchum in came through so nice. I'm sure every kid when they're making their first movie has Lauren Bacall Harry Dean Stanton David Warner Virginia Matson Mary Stuart masterson and Anthony Edwards and Anthony Edwards lead the lead role in the lead role now. This has to be the dumbest most obvious question I could ask but were you intimidated working with these people and if so how did you work through through that well because you're going to direct them now in a in a story and you're not doing it for a studio. You're doing doing independently on a location so there are other pressures involved as well. Yeah I mean I mean the the intimidation really came from my life father. I mean just as a kid growing up if if you were summoned you would literally shake in your in your boots and and then everything was okay but that was that was that sort of moment of extreme fear and and these guys that were working on the films that I was making whilst my father was alive had such great respect for my father and and and they were keen on on helping me out so I never really felt any any any power play but wonderful yeah it is. I directed my father. in a in a an hour long film called Mr Corbett's Ghost that I made for English television and he played the collective soul's typecast as and and we we started the I think it was one of the first days of filming roaming and my father got her line..

"malcolm lowry" Discussed on Jamming Their Transmission

"Think. There is no intention there, by the way, there's no comma there, it's not for the white comma, we think it's for the light. We think some of these by the way, I should have to say some of them are difficult to read because a lot of it is a play with punctuation. Yes. Because I'm taking out punctuation in the way that people forget to use it and therefore the meaning gets completely convoluted. So I had to say that when. Do one of funnier one. These are all shrimp. This is called filibuster. Filibusters are always fun. Oh, they're always a good time. A bear. Does of course, in the woods. But let me warn you that fair also shits near house the white one. And I don't mean white bear. Because that would mean that was talking about polar bears, which from worth American entirely different continent than the one that implicate through this appropriately scatalogical speech, and by the way, when was the last time you went for a walk in the woods and Kim upon steaming pilot species that because of the relatively large size of bone fragments contain there in proved to be undoubtedly from very large bear shitting in the woods, the very same Barad seems that shitting in your house writing our house rather because I want to be bipartisan here as I know all of you do too. So yes, our house white as it is a certain term Brown from sully instinctive. I haven't not from swamp gas, which has a sulphurous odor. But rather from bear shit that has untold. A Mets thing odor. The kind of methane that can be found bubbles exploiting from melting permafrost in Siberia, where the infrastructure of Russian pipelines runs the risk of serious damage knows very sang methane bubbles exploding because of climate change that cannot be denied unless you are showing the beast, a path electrical denier reality from which the world was created whether you believe in God or not because it could just as well be your big bang theory. But not the TV show that my kid watches. Maybe you're too, right? Let's pool our commonalities while Rabl and therefore asked you now might like minded France here on the hill at this eleven limit and a half hour does a bear shit woods. If no one's there to smell it. Speaking about Asian. I think that that's a a one sentence paragraph. It is it isn't heath. It was like trying to be. I'm trying to be the answer Pelosi. No, I'm joking. Lovely read just one more really quickly. 'cause I want something to shift this if you don't mind. It's called we choir. Empirical evidence. Late on a summer night the air stick with SWIFT's flipping snatching bugs out of the heirs stars Brighton breath, so m- damn birds such crazy flight patterns away. Those aren't SWIFT's their backs. Wonderful. Thank you. This is important actually when I talking about this book, it was less an incidence of writing, and then editing, it it was writing editing while I was writing. And so there is a lot of of Weldon on live, but some self reflect seventy in it because I would start on something. And and then it was really about turning whatever I had said into. I don't know how to say this. But more of a reality. Even though reality is. Delusional, maybe illusion. So some of it comes back on it self. And I say this again, there's a Lipsey that happens on a lot of these where it folds back because I'm always questioning the act of writing and the the meaning of the of the language while and doing it, and once you're in that sort of gang, I call it a game because I find it. Interesting writes, something in your life will that's a lie, but you can't change anything. So you have to shift to another direction keep shifting back and forth until you think you'd get to essentially the exposure of the lie, which I'm really interested. I was already working on my memoir while I was running this headband because my my father was dying and then diving twenty seventeen and I was really interested in this idea that. Languages so chocked full of lies. We just lie constantly as I said, we relied were solids Baio, the people. We in language allows us to protect ourselves through those lies. But if you try to strip that on. Unwind that backwards. Take the tape off. And like, okay. I was lying. I'm lying right now. I'm saying this because I think it sounds good. But it's not really true. So what what happens next if I can't just delete. What I just said that somehow I have to keep folding forward forward forward. You know? Because I'm trying to discount when I just said, but also making it true by going forward into well choosing semantics essentially to say like, you know, that wasn't easy one. I mean that was like, you know, we require a pair of gloves, blah, blah, blah, blah. But, but I think I do know that when I was working on some of these other ones, it was really about not going back in editing them, except for, you know, tweaks in the this word is not an exact no this needs something. But really just being in that moment of writing and allowing it to happen. Allowing myself to already discount what I've already been writing about. But but bringing it full circle. So that it's coherent. And ideally, I would hope in some of these that the reader understands this. But you know, what I don't the Lou myself. I'm I know that people are algal back again to the the city arts who who reads a book, slowly three four times, you know, it just doesn't happen anymore. Kate I do poetry. I did that way. Because poetry, you know, what a five pages, you know, you're Rita through one time they read through again, then read through again. And then you find the ones that you love the most in my case. That's what I do. I read some books over over and a half for years. And I've read some swing time what are some of those books. Well, the example that I've given in the past the one that I read. Trying to read of missed two years because they haven't had the book three years because they haven't had the book is the razor's edge. And the reason that I do it is because Somerset mom was seventy years old. But he wrote that book, and I had a feeling that I needed to grow in to that story. And I don't mean story it was it was essentially Romana Klaff. But I really want a new the ideas in there that I wasn't quite getting there were things I loved about it. It's very romantic book in some ways. And in some ways, it's very anti romantic. But I thought the book at a state sale in San Francisco when I was twenty nine and I read it, and then was something. True about it. And I couldn't not figure how what what was true about it. And I knew there was something. But I knew I had lived long enough. And I've read it almost every year since then and every single year, there's something I recognized. And I think that's really important. I mean, I think that if you're writing something when you're seventy you know, there's the Colt of youth. Right. Whether it's a celebrity call to run, literature, whatever and it's fun. But did that there's some shit that you ride that nobody's gonna understand until you get there because you haven't done that. Or you haven't lived that. And I don't think that everybody have to. But I I would hope that everybody would want to would want to somehow have this sort of fullness of life and this hindsight vision that understands things in a way that young person would not understand. And it wasn't a dumb shit when I was like. Twenty eight. I'm of course, thought I do a lot. But but it's true. I think that it's the only get I've had this conversation with a lot of older friends of mine who were like, you know, we're we're reading a world. Nobody gives shit about our our our perspective. Nobody cares about because it's you know, we've gotten to certain place for Nolan Ryan is like all about sack since about this madness night or whatever. But it's, but the the perspective that you get a deal if you are thinking person in you spent your life thanking in trying to figure things out and reading a lot obviously site you have a completely different perspective on things. And it's. Nuanced in a way that only. Ideally, it's not only people your own age get, but I think in a lot of cases, it is you identify with that. And you're like yes, had her stay on the. Yes, that's true. Because the closer you get toward deaths. I mean, literally the closer give wrong die in in the UK. You you understand? It's it's not a belief. It's a knowledge. There's you swing your whole live like I'm gonna bad. But you don't really have. You don't really know what, you know, feel it. And then suddenly you have people around dying over your own age, you know, cancer, the heart attacks, whatever and you see the, oh, yeah. This is a reality. Of course, I live that for a few years, but the closer I get I live almost everyday like that. Now, you know, my husband is a slightly older than I am. And I think about eventually one of us is going to be gone. Is it gonna be me wince? Leaps him alone to have to go through life is going to be him. Leaves me alone is one of us going to be incapacitated. In a way, we have been caretakers for the rest of that person's sly. I mean, the these ideas shift and they're important. That's not. That's not exactly what happens in the reser says because racist edges really essentially about a spirituality not religious rowdy. But the idea of learning what's important. I recommended a midnight. I like, Somerset Maugham, I know some people have problems with some this stuff because he. At the time. He was not necessarily repress gave, but he was living culture that didn't make it easy for him to be gang. And. It's a very dense store is very narrative. The writing is not answered all not like, for example, Malcolm Lowry of the volcano, which is beautiful dense writing love, I love that book. Fuck that's another book that I've read multiple times. It's a great novel. I mean, it is so bad. That's that's density. I mean that is like really packing in this the blank, I if somebody asked me by the students that what do you mean by dance language, Mike? I don't know. I just know when I read it, it's dense. It's so it's like you're swimming in it in this thick viscous matter. Exactly. Exactly. I that book. I love this is jamming their transmission. I'm John Madeira. And I'm talking to do blassie about among other things today is the day that will matter her latest novel. There's a range of form and texture in the novel, Deborah, and I'd love for you to read some pieces that further demonstrate this like the geometric word problems. Cones John McCain were problems or Coen's for Snapchat per one. One plot line from here to there to divide by the number of days before your rebirth. Three your worst enemy is choking on a peanut. What do you do?
