"A mountain separating two lakes. A room papered floor to ceiling with bridal saddens. The lead of an immense snuff. These seemingly unrelated images take us on a tour of a sperm. Whales head in Herman Melville's. On the surface. The book is the story of Captain Ahab Hunt for Revenge Against Moby Dick. The white whale bit off his leg. But though the book features parrots, typhoons, high speed chases and giant squid. You shouldn't expect to conventional seafaring adventure. Instead, it's a multi layered exploration of not only the intimate details of life aboard a whaling ship. But also subjects from across human and natural history. By turns playful tragic humorous and urgent. The Narita. Guiding us through these expirations is a common sailor called Ishmael. Ishmael starts out telling his own story as he prepares to escape dampened, drizzling November in his soul like going to see. But after he befriends Pacific Island Creek. And joins a helps crew aboard the people. Ishmail, because more of missing guide from the reader than a traditional character. While, a cab obsesses over revenge and I meet. starbuck tries to reason with him. ISHMAIL takes us on his own quest for meaning. Throughout the whole universe, not excluding at suburbs. In his telling life's biggest questions loom large even in the smallest details. Like his narrator Melville was restless and curious spirit who gained an unorthodox education working as a sailor on a series of grueling voyages around the world in his youth. He published Moby Dick in eighteen, fifty one when the United States. Whaling Industry was at its height. Nantucket where the P. Quad set sail was the epicenter of this lucrative unbloodied. which decimated the world's whale populations? Unusually for his time, Melville doesn't shy away from the ugly side of the industry. Even taking the whales perspective a one point when he speculates on how terrifying the huge shadows of the ships must be to the creature swimming below. The authors firsthand familiarity with wailing is evident over and over again in ishmail vivid descriptions. In one chapter, the skin of Wales Penis comes protective clothing for a crewman. Chapters with titles unpromising. As system buckets become some of the novels most rewarding as Ishmael compares bailing out a sperm whale ed to mid white for. Which leads reflections on Plato. Tangling Wail, lines provoke witty reflections on the ever-present perils tangling all. He draws on diverse branches of knowledge like. Astronomy, nor economics, mythology and teachings from a range of religious and cultural traditions. The book experiments with writing style as much subject matter. In one monologue Ahab Challenges Moby Dick in Shakespearean style. Towards the I roll thou all destroying hung on conquering wail. Till the lost I grapple with the. From, hells, hot I stab at the. For hate. Sake I spit my last breath. One chapter is written as a play script where members of the P quads, multi-ethnic crew chime in individually and in chorus African and Spanish. Trade insults while it. He shouldn't seaman longs for home, Chinese and Portuguese, crew members coal for dance, and one young boy prophesized disaster. In another chapter! ishmail sings the process of decanting whale oil in epic style. As the ship pitches and rolls in the mid might see. The casks rumble like landslides. A book so wide ranging has something for everyone. Readers have found religious and political allegory, existential inquiry, social satire, Economic Analysis and representations of American imperialism, industrial relations and racial conflict. As schmil chases meaning an Ahab chases the white whale. The book explores the opposing forces of optimism and uncertainty. Cheerios, ity and fear the characterize human existence. No matter what it is where chasing. Through moby Dick's many pages. Melville invites his readers to leap into the unknown to join him on the hunt for the UNCROSSABLE Phantom of life.
LTAI 014 - Shawn Melville
"All right well Melville to podcasts. Couple quick notes for sponsor so. We have three responses today. One of course Bien if some technologies With Sean Melville dethroned as well as managing director. Ankara phonebook. Something. Now that the other two sponsors through gun staley wedding invitations Put up for that and trump. I had Rajiv Ramlogan phone. Trim their company right of informational videos on how to solve problems. Lost last that went. Viral was on solving the flooding solution. Defendant problem and Kearney and stuff so he actually was interviewed on TV six hundred stuff for that so a lot of people tend to things you are the CO founder of technologies. Who else was involved in the founding so I have a three other phone. This is the Marlins Peru very very dynamic speaker. He's a police officer. I'm probably the only blind police officer crazy technology list. Yes so Intense Backstory as to help yet be good started. I attended a startup weekend. Event back in twenty fourteen or on June and with the intention of starting something that might help with disabilities WHO MILEM. Perry is there and You know so I I see him just curious to know what is modeling into pitch as a model and gets up and he says his I'm blind. I can't see plasma news. I want something that can help me. Navigation unsweetened pitched his idea that he wanted some advice. Help with Identify obstacles in any we and helping him to be together on and the idea itself was well received by the audience and actually loved. The idea told him his what. Let's we will take a little bit. And so because he that is what instead of having a person behind the camera on the other side looking to see what is in front of the reason we could be a device that is he sense obstacles any environment and in use that information than process. Unin GIVE FEEDBACK TO SEE. Aleph player right left right. Left and technology existed in technology exists. Then yeah you. Technology exists in terms of Google's. Have driving cars. See how autonomous systems. But we haven't used it for persons. Who will impede right and use that technology to augment our senses. That's all I was just self driving cars. So how does it work? Is it's I think it was nine. Ultrasonic sensors that you wear and has done a comma Bondo something around here we right so we have an arena. Villages census yes Phenomena tonight I type in that sense is illegal actions and the is worn our own chest or torso right and that allows you to detect obstacles to crawl midways and then Uptempo head hacked and reason why we want to be able to do that is because you may have obstacles that nothing wrong like tree branches etc that he puts his blame one pick up on so have had the experience of Deli Mountain Duck. You know especially when it comes to overhanging branches sidewalk and so the these types of problems that we want to address. And we've been able to build a prototype Truly that engineering lobue. You built a prototype. Subsequently to winning started weekend we won the IT innovation competition and be good grant funding to build that so we have a function of the type that have been demonstrating at different conferences and events etc internationally to see how we can get support to build Bhakta product. So what are the capabilities of this device? I could sense moving objects as well like a bicycle driving say walk or Calcutta curse root. Welcome third listen interesting that you brought that particular question because as a current limitation of what do put type thing do you know we recognize that the dynamic will and that in the number of things that could be. You could go wrong. So for instance we he goes moving up sagoes etc. These are all things that need to be able to take into consideration but of course the limitations in funding as well as a gun knowledge. It wasn't be able to be done. I'd be point in time. We'll be doing this. Romantic put attack. We'll be recognized is that we want to incorporate all these additional features that you think help to make the product much most safe and Which make more reliable than this would be something good for people to develop because something that I didn't really consider until this morning thinking about it was how dangerous it actually vote. Blame the center curiosity road if they have that pedestrian crossing lights. I mean they have no ethan to drive him. I mean we drive down here to get the technology to be able to detect some. Take that far away. You know moving out whether it was speeding you like a Lotta led to be put into something like that up. That's service yes. That is very true. We have a very ambitious glue. Because we wanted to be able to help you put with all these keen and you know I've had Loosens you know. Think accuweather keen is very very central. Part of bution. Someone who's playing but we recognize that the technologies that bonds. Entice its limitations. And so you said that because we want people to see his you know long I have to be defined by your ability after Recap Keno into people to move wrong no overtime. It's not going to be something that'd be do immediately. Right became highs uses. It helps people defied at disc looseness Lang. I with all that. Sometimes people assume that believe keen and he could see any good but Agrees of Visual. Impairment is a spectrum as people who could be could move But is he little vision might be May Not be able to see in one. Half of the I. It may be that as a Katara Atro- DIVISION IN SOME PLACES. But he could see things on. So you know. Depending on the type of vigilant payment behalf Deeming very wealthy to see you can review board kind of eating cactus any street signs anything like that so is important to you. Know there's something that identifies the business being Blind visiting but be one that to change from being Kim so that people could be independent and do things for themselves without having to you know always tell somebody. I'm blind I you know and then I guess the as well. Yeah in the secondary Hyundai Cops Way and I'll have one hundred dollars. You have one. Yes that is true. Maybe something to look at is Making it is already aware Levi's but it'd be good effect. Somebody Bogan functional. It gets into simple designed like jacket so he can have sensors on his shoulders into the design. So when it's on it just looks like adjucates. It doesn't look like you're wearing anything. Well love that. You brought that up. Because that's bad I wanted to take it and You know you mentioned fashion and as that has been something in my mind Have been looking more toward the industrial. Zang you. Which would include looking been. I'll make some public would be born. Fashion designer would add a little bit. More of slant is in terms of you know with visual appeal aesthetics behind. That would make this product something that people want to we recognize even though some people might be blind or anything which expected to win but very much conscious about holidays. Look anyone to be in style just like anybody else allows so critical in. We didn't think about it as a feedback that we got Need to meet. Just look good so that you know when people when the way it comfortable device will be I really Grazyna vision but I would. I would love to see you guys get more support to really push us on fully develop it because you guys definitely have yeah. It is abilities just the anti funded. No so I'll much as I could. I definitely implant this. Go on on the edge because this is something that is just going to stay. Localized trinite out. This product is just GonNa stay local as the US so that you have to do any patents designs sue. I have outgoing have gone to e could clinic in several prisons from the Look up by tons of his more or less giving some advice on it. But we haven't taken entity pointy. Copd patterned and Investigate a provisional patent a full patent on and the reason for that is that you need to have season aspects of that novel and it involves a little bit more than just taking consumer electronics. Simple Damn to get to solve that problem or if you have to know. Recreate a new design. Doc takes a little bit more finance to you. Know the embedded systems these. Hang up the board as well as the industrial design Which would sort of fashion. I hope what will be fully fit for this particular product. So that You know you can be patented look of it and everything and so those are the evs that helps us refine a mall and you mentioned. That's not something that can be international. I so have actually been presented internationally. presentation in Jamaica as well as in Panama and was well received so he went into. Meco be better award from the ICU and Samsung. I last accessible America's which is in twenty and then recently a up to the vibe into Panama present lack Nick Lack Nov Conference and you know. People very very impressed by. We'll be project in region and of course limited funding right. My next focus at this point in time is actually going to do by two thousand twenty Eggs and We actually submitted an application today on past flus leg of it which is e pre-qualification screening looking to see what met criteria down. I recently would have completed the second stage. Which is Submit you find application. So I'm hoping that once they received that second application you would refu- it and it'll be get accepted today. I keep in Dubai next year or maybe go gusts to November month. Esi Wendy do by twenty to expose running and bulow going to provide funding for it as well. So it's expert possibly be funding. Yes yes yes. You'll get displays in Dubai as well as to Fun into executed over a period of a year so yet so you know the opportunities internationally. And and that's one of the things I wanted to encourage Unopposed in Trinidad and Android look at is in Luke for dues opportunities by subscribing to the organizations like Blue Bank and the bank and other international phone patients. Because you may find. Any creepy amuse tend to have like very risk of this venture capital investing but internationally. If I know what you're doing you're much more likely to get support so you know. I think I'd have to look outside and see what are the opportunities. I M take the risk and I think a good point because for just looking from the own safety you do. We lack creativity that Caribbean but that isn't a problem. I think you're right. We just lack the finance says that willing to take risks on these new projects that could possibly feel and I mean let's be honest. The companies and small region a lot smaller than companies internationally because the smaller countries small economies smaller markets. So you seem risk will be bigger for them. Yes that is true in assuming it would be a lot. More risk for them to put out the million. Us project whereas in the US is yes as punk change. I D IN THE BILLION COMPANIES. And so when you talkin about You kind of get a billion dollar company grew in in a billion lake enemy you get a billion dollar company Grin trillion-dollar economy right right. So I understand Anakin is up but I think that you know we stymie or grew by not looking on site. So for instance a Lotta companies much more comfortable wearing what traditional so you have government contracts you bid Millions of dollars to get off of that that particular job done but you know what comes to government contracts lease payments. Yeah You lonely times contracts ons to innovate anything about implementing something. That is already well-established. I I know we have a lot of young engineers coming to you. We will go toward them. You know just have ideas. I just WanNa talk through these ideas. Okay and see what sticks is that is true an a you know. I see it and I have Melissa thinking okay. The have access to these views listens and resources. Tim's of money but as well as you know. He meant capital He that team. I prefer this human potential because you have so much potential to create new things but a lot of these companies have access to people as well as resources and Digest Routine and to me. That's a huge feeling on their pipe. Because it's it's very much possible that in addition to their routine things doing nickens Aviv by looking at how Opportunities within this sector of incense if you into construction yes you could put up building but you could also look at. How can you innovates in terms of how we can create more efficient buildings? You can also look at how to make the equipment put up building not just that I think yours is definitely a good or to you looking to get attention. Attention from outside by entering into these competitions on business recognition and then I guess you still need some sort of sponsorship I guess sponsorship at this point two would help a lot of these events because not going to be cheap to do buy yes. It'll be good even to get companies to partner with innovators like you where they could like. If you get to the second stage go by the agree to if you are if you make into this ditch response you to go across to the so whereas it'll have to sponsor your project there can be expensive to them. You could at least get you places that will open up that opportunity for us to take a lot of leftover on still get to benefit from it. Yes I must admit an anti should see that have gotten support from the Caribbean elegantly. Haitians Union get into events looking example. This year I went to the nibbling summit in in Washington on June month and that was at the Spun on a fellowship from the sea to you and you know be looked at the device and need not be. Saudi presentation. I need to be Andy will very impressed. And so we developed a relationship since then and Most of the talking the opportunity to send me and I had to know network with different companies that are very much involving assistive technologies in to see what sort of assistive technologies Excessive black teas. What can we bring back to the Caribbean? It's an additional opportunities. But I think we need more companies like that that within two evil sponsor even Jesse trip each up itself is less much less risky and in fact they can benefit from it. Because you know when you go there to different countries and meet people you can network with Persons who cannot be me what they do a little bit more You know business opportunities etc a fully company across. Yes yes yes. It'd be a win win relationship to at it just again a quick clarification if anybody that is icy to us what information oh information and communication technologies. Yes correct all right so that would be helping people with disabilities. While you focus on visual impairments disabilities. Yes absolutely right now. The majority of my focus has been on visual impairment. But that won't limit it to that anymore So have you been looking at other technologies? That could help boost. Who have physical disabilities? Like Vincent Maybe couldn't find W OPRAH HATS Who DEF definitely had of hearing and so the new technologies or some of them. Meena be is new but not necessarily as prevalent then thank Kuechley. Implants doctrine. We can look into some of these technologies to see. Okay Ho. Can we bring that access to Poussin's who are deaf year because one of the challenges people deaf is that allows is excluded from the economist in the inflammation that necessarily it keeps them and to create those type of Job Opportunities? And so it'd be realized that unit you know inclusive society especially not of these society at only things that are happening here is going online trending in that direction we need to ensure that the most vulnerable populations and this disabilities asked Haley. Robert is that he get an opportunity to come online. Keep participation rates. Don't get left behind. Yes but I think is greasy focusing on visual impairments because I think that is a disability that a lot of people just a freeze even consider because when you look at it. I think you'd be majority of information through your three ascites because I could walk around with April on. For Twenty four hours on Mobile Lake. Well cosmetic really good enemy so we thought he'd say the smell doesn't thing though teased I mean but if I had to lose by eight twenty four hours I think that that s scary thoughts an anti fact that you have just isn't even geared to people like that's it might be scary so I think it's good that of all the things choose to focus on issues of focus on. This is being done anything with Uganda. Accessibility problems rates. People fainted which is and stuff yes glad to see. That gets a lot more attention now. You see a lot of places like we accessible. They make another point for Loudini. Berlin construction sounds good. Opi- keep it's up but again I've seen like very focus on people with usual mpm on still do things like I guess. Like real on science and stuff but if you call sign as we're gonNA know brew both. Interestingly enough I mean any physical environment. The isn't as much focused. But in the digital spy's I think there's much more business who have line than any other type of disability right because you have Screen me to screen backfires. You have Braille displease. You have Speeches Texans assizes. So you know these a lot of technologies that have been developed to help so that you know someone who's buying in utilize Internet just as efficiently as anybody else and in fact in some cases like Ma and could use it much way simply because again example. Marlin could be sitting there. We are now and boy to defeat away. He's on his own. Puta again away on type. No any computer right and nobody would ever know that he's doing luke why because he has You know You know he has his is Bluetooth headset is. He has keyboarding his hands. And he's able to know how many wirelessly between his devices and computer I school. You know that we can't really do because we don't listen to the feedback. We have to sit and look at your screen and physical constrain. Our we do but he keeps doing it from anyway. Right and so. The technology has advanced point where Pusan's with WHO obviously Indian and if it was if we want to use it technology no bias that is need to limit it But you know. We just not accustomed his so relent and vision. But I'm seeing that you know there's a lot has been done in with you visiting the payment. What hasn't happened as much is focused deaf. Ohio out of here I think is still needs to be a lot done here. In terms of the assistive technologies Williams. Of what the. The cell spy's so for instance. We rely a lot more closed captioning. But what happens is that Pusan's death the For them language with low which is like a second ship. Because you're saying it and some of them are not able to read as well and so we take it right that they would be to look at it. The pneumatic practice and think. Oh this is what this means. But you know so we. We associated those in taxes with zoned. Yes does yours yes. You're not have even thought about that so but I would. That would be the most difficult for people that will never have the ability to Jane Tax. When you hear the sounds that he different letters make but I guess would be as difficult for somebody that lost the heron lead through Like just through degeneration of Erin yet yet. Yes so mostly is in. Life is not a problem But you know if you've lost your hearing MMA each eats new Bueki before that is much more difficult Because fans even my daughter she would see the the letters. Suv but she does not put the letters together to make the wood in a in a true fighter that I must say that precede language with more have the challenge of teaching to read. And so she knows you have all this is what I if you come. Banged would since it's funny. You know it's it's difficult. Look at that and then timid okay. What selling needs and I guess. We seem challenge won't be living alone like Spanish French. Whatever you know. Da's In which you in your rule the hours talking to that will you? You know that that that could be bowl. Or cough like thorough. Yeah that seem that seem full differently. Yes saying I mean it. You get a greater appreciation for originally go to different countries because in some cases you know you can't speak the language whatsoever and is now because you're not intelligent but it's just that you didn't have that's what exposure growing up and loosens. Who are definitely seem. Think you live with any environment but you never really get exposure to understand it properly so I think is be progressive society. We have to know try to understand. Holiday include everyone and understanding different challenges and because of the hype. Competitive need to be living at of this particular woo. We need to be on the whole to include everyone and that's a huge challenge. That seem that seem. Vian was it. I think that developed the binder if I would yes. Same blaming forward again. Marlins bring it chemo experience. Which is when he got up to eighty to one to to lose his vision and he was not able to transition. Just blame this as quickly as you would have liked. I think it appears took a both maybe three to six months for him to really get accustomed to the fact. That is what. I'm Blaine except that I'm blind and no I need tap the put do teens at be. Make my life a little better and takes. It took time because one he didn't have supported and he didn't have knowledge transition so in order to meet that process easier for other people who might be the same problem. What we did is. He tried to create a package into any form of film as well as other An auxiliary tillery type of Stuff economically support them so it is a booklet that provides information family is an audio book was allowed wanted as well as much information but the film itself which is thirty minutes long covered a lot of the different challenges and the jeep broke it up into different teams so insensitive cooking Let's see you can be applying a meal? How do you do that If you went to get involved in into team into sports what different types and who who is currently involved that has had a visiting payment. What type of sports involved Green you know Dying Olympia and a lifter and we to be you know be interviewed. Him Stuck his experiences at certain professions like You know Radio announcers as we talk to Tyson at he is. He was nineteen point. One spoke to Him Jessica. His experiences In terms of one of you became blind to all. Has he been able to cope and you know student in his professional in what his words of encouragement to boost who might be going to that team challenge and wanting to get involved in something like what he's doing and so be did that really inspire and to get people you know aware that having of Ezekiel payment whether you were born with the quieted is not the end to do what you really requires. Knowledge obstacle to overcome and live a life just as fruitful as you would have gone with your vision. Yes that is true but I think in addition of course have any rights banks as an information was the need a society that is a much more way an empathetic because it would be Few tile to Jesse Ulan could do everything and if you just have a positive mindset about Look really need people to be way of the fact that if someone has a disability regatta is beam and MPM of but hearing You know if you a mobility talent you need to know. Meeks hidden accommodations right. That's what I love for them. To live a full life and all died it would make it much more difficult for them to us so what ordinary people do to make life better or easier for people are echo visual impairment disability. We'll ever see anyone onto to seek to understand. Try to have conversation. I need the immune business deaf. Maybe a little bit more difficult to have a conversation with them unless he used a mobile phone right and but having conversations helps you to understand the perspective and that way you can much more empathetic and you can then do what you could do to be assistance. So that me and things sofa was the moebius debate followed this impo right. The project was about the impala platform that is a an initiative to create opportunities for Pusan's but disabilities get online. I mean talking about jobs like graphic Ziying website development I'm mission etc. Which are very high-skilled high-paid jobs and Don't require lots of investment upfront. You do in. Graphic design is really able to skill and having a beer a decent laptop that has not around ad space to be able to produce end product which is usually the graphics. Look For magazines lose etc for companies in doodoo branding CETERA? These of very very well peed and usually done by freelancers right. So I'm looking at that space and I have a little bit of experience with it to be able to get persons with disabilities train there and then it allows emily flexibility to be the from home. Yes they wouldn't have to deal with mobility issues. Haven't traveled to on from yes. I stressed out over that. And that's good because we don't you know patronizing to them because I think there's a problem that S- we something we do. Sometimes you know we would feature night and somebody with a disability and treat them as though they take themselves or something or treat them as the less than who they Leah instead of just you know just how them getting to to just be able to be independent everything for themselves. So I think this impala program is a a good way because they onslaught of jobs that would be looking for people with disabilities on another? Thank you had lots of opportunities open for them. But I guess without without knowledge that yes it has to do with the fact that one company companies unnecessary Looking to hire with disabilities because exception that it can't do certain things and loopy. You'll be politically incorrect. Actually feast just give them a Job. Offer them fees and wouldn't give them actually truly have them out and just a. Who WILL BE SOMEBODY? Else's problem hope Problems elsewhere and I think you think that is about the problem a huge possibly problem and in I mean I I've been in the speech Five years really listening and understanding empathizing with them. And you know it. It grieves me. It's pet peeve. When I was a different international only regional conferences. You hear Policy me is politicians. Talk about what what is being done and then you realize oh but you know it is just talk yeah right and what is the injuries of how is impacting. This individuals is known with this visual impairment to the payment like you policies just yes translates into actual results. A lot of it is just like Putin. He'll be doing this. See that we have a project. implemented but is no direct impact on benefit to the community. And so you know one of the key things that I said to them and said here's what if not making any At ending benefit them this is not be content right so we want to improve quality of life goossens with disabilities. And how we do that. I think is the imperative to be an income and Pushing the the impala project in fact that trump initial will of those perfect Yes right and even polar project has the potential skills globally right minority projects. We've been looking on as potential but this one is the definite yet a high incapacity because a lot of the Pusan's disabilities aigle have the skills. What they lack is sometimes is the opportunity to use those skills in a in an economic context at this mostly software oriented You're lucky because of the hardware costs. Yes yes yes yes. Movies assists has the potential to liberate people to be able to move You know within environments at eleven but of course to get them a high real product requires you to have won a not. Just a poodle type. Do you need to have a fully designed photo that has been tested at NFC hasn't FCC lab or you laboratory Sometimes you have multiple certifications intestinal. You also need to protect the intellectual property. Then once you have those two things you need to get a a a factory or some kind of manufacturing plant make opened Doucet is minimum quantities. And then you'll need to have a distribution channel right supplies so this is a very long and on top of the two. So that's what drives up the cost and then in terms of pushing visibilities many of them Live in places that are high to reach right am seeing how to reach me perspective. We wouldn't al-wadya Andy. You don't have access to technology so you typically have to go through these different disability support organizations to see who's on the register and then you can figure politic to talk to them. Sometimes he might have full numbers in call them right but still need to get access to that information as if there was a way for you to somehow gets in contact with the US thing. Because I know they do a Lotta will on kids with disabilities because they have people injured in combat stuff is behind things but again. I just don't know how that would go into you. Know somebody coming from a country like if they will jump onto this objective in any so we but if if it was possible to get this how projects across to that to that level. That would be good. We have the one thing. I guess that you wouldn't have any problems. With distribution manufacturing really like that and this is something that would just be scalable. Do we have to ask you want somebody else does it. But what about from the head of its? Let's see I'm looking for. I'm looking for people to look at my company to connect me with people with these skills right so that would be looking at because fan sense do The employer gets the benefit of skill on the duplicity disability and so giving example of someone who has a payment who's very good at Audio and video production. Yucky has a studio and as Jason decent so Jason was born blind and he does jingles. You see right now. He's one of the exceptions. He's very good at it. Yeah he's runs his wounds tool he has people he's a businessman or what I'm thinking. Beat up on my experience. Talking solutions will have similar skills is how can we get them on a micro level to be able to offer this city's organizations and if organizations they are we see from time to do is work than it means that there are other organizations similar to that that would be able to see his but we have corporate social responsibility policy? Or perhaps look. We've done that if this will be so we need to look at it. Funny Perspective of One dictionary show markets in each of these companies. So how do you market and get him on the phone? And then how do we to them? Beat up on whatever the teaching vision for the organization. And so I see a lot of the NGOs foundations Development agencies accessory be at the typical customers looking for to be utilized episodes. But it'll be good to see if branch out into against like ordinary corporate companies private companies. Maybe even set up something like Carribean jobs. Books for people with disabilities. We wanted to be a little bit more than just a job. seeking black for Monday people into net to collaborate online due to work. So for instance. If if there's a project every class multiple different time skills you can actually get groups of disabilities collaborating online and doing those jobs. So that's that's the end goal for this particular platform because Let's say some branding project one to do it but if you as you have someone who could do the graphics someone might be doing mission film somebody has seen websites etc we all come together to be able to implement that particular project and then coming out of that project ninety percent that's beat them in a percentage testees company so monetization of the almost instant. Some sort of nation to expand AS Roma's museums. So the montage in comes off. The fees at a piece is a percentage looking at the fifteen percents on each transaction that takes place on all right so that we have no startup capital. Plan me for with No. That's something that just as as deploying yes forward. It was more or less a project to educate the public. No intends up on. Its is doing workshops right so chefs in the shop. He didn't get more vote. What technologies of you two you holiday to live a bit much more freely Feeling Oh can't you get out? And what sort of police is you to west of support services?

Oh that's that's good. That's so the company would sponsor workshop and that is and you guys coming in whose workshop to people that wanted to seats. Yes right an recently. We did a workshop for the UN. On increasing access to technology disabilities than I am facilities. right answer that one was about a universal service funds. The fact that is money available. Poussin's implement these types of projects but Disability support organizations any of his funds and south have not implemented any projects and very very little projects supposedly right and Do reason for that is the lucky capacity and knowledge into a what types of technologies available and in holiday and kraft hasn't project and so what we did was key to them on the different size as best possible what we have demonstrated that and then we showed them okay. This is how you can access of these procedures. So Finn Sons. When is a call of proposal? You need to be with a P. attention to that need to look at. It has critera who is all. Then you need to be crafty. People is probably not violated. And then when you? Do you propose approved ozzy execute that project and so that is a more recent projects that too and I was done with a seven hundred short People coming in from Saint Lucia to me Renita Sin Vinson any guidance kits. Six extra At what is somehow well. We ended twenty. I mentioned Dubai expert. Twenty twenty Avenue also looking at some other fellowships to train res Z. Awareness of what we do internationally so twenty two unease most able business development. I'm going to try to try to do some much more Some mobile accepts in between to get at but potter would have to do his. Raise the awareness of what you've done writing so that we can get the funding and support necessary to take a photo experience. Been like in tubes of. I know we touched on this earlier with the intellectual. Select trump property office. You guys do any You guys don't have any pets as yet because he lied to. I guess more detailed designs not just group in consumer products by Pufus Products specifically for your application. Yes that only could apply for the The Patent yes if you have a design. I need to demonstrate how it would look that then you can go ahead and patents Patenting takes time right and also costs money so you if we ahead and try to patent something that at this point isn't patentable is a slim chance that it might aptly be defendable. Wasting money expensive is getting the donor So D- D- costs Fees and do fact that we don't have a lot of lawyers can help by tent. Says I don't know what specific filing class of after Moore's gender. Hey how about science and this country though. I mean there are few people who do it but it is much more detail to pleasanton that jazz. Five defy butternut in New People who went to buy the product right now the Zun research in defeat doing so. It's not just as simple as but I created something So people I need to button to Ibiza be was in the demands specifically for this once his patented all right and I have an idea but Benito movies is so once. He promoted knowing that people aren't willing to bite him. Silky has what you need to make sure that that this is protected. Funny I think I think that's a fan of pot. I just think as a country we should be if we want to promote innovation this country should be patents as easy as cheap as possible. Maybe even free I think pleasanton should be funded of months or something because if you look at a lot of that in the US on different countries Unsa on that because they economically viable alloted. Time just to protect your idea to make sure that nobody else is even have a lot of companies ideas that patented doesn't know APU patented the sheep of the ipod slightly posited knocked judgeship. You have more spots shocking for we got some examples do to protect the show design A little bit of difference in industrial design protection. So I if I was saying that she can protect that when Patton ten is a lot more involved right so I need you protectionist. Bs accused twenty years so he can pretend technology. Will you come any patent sheep? Sheep right through the Mock but as in your but he has still you intellectual property. Yes thinking she chubby. Battling right I'm saying show these things just to have something like what we use as a potential barrier between you know you ought to get new idea. Said an offense is something about them to buy you recognized wide or just insisted regents if you buy them some the only protected intranet and similarly if you bought something in us it's only protecting the US so that's a check with button and you have to protect your patent in the different countries as you intend to treat him. But I think of this is not a experiencing so probably have to look at the the. Us Patent Office also has partnerships might like the whatever office the Europeans use. It also determines infringe on each of those back. If you bought cents in one country it might be automatically recognised in another but no Asia's completely to France because it just got too much about trump yes I mean in Asia. It may be frowned upon for them. Because the the in vitro copying different things right. Yeah and Any improvement in any competitive in the US. You the different companies. I can help you find patents and so if it is go online and see what the patent in these countries you can automatically have it but it it in in Australia in. Us in England where right But if you five indirectly with particular patients in you participate in that that one hundred soon. Yi's you could utilize the secrets to the patent in multiple countries. Do you know if we have any of those services available. Don't get access but is not going to be patented and protected here utilizes Attention countries again the mall and Cheesier by the FBI and that would be like what opie or just one time up front cost within two years.

The rising again to life of all the human dead before the final judgment resurrection. Can also mean the state of one risen from the dead or more broadly resurrection can mean resurgence or revival. Here's the word used in a sentence from Moby Dick by Herman Melville after the ceremony was concluded upon the present occasion. I felt all the easier all the days I should now. Live would be as good as the days that Lazarus lived after his resurrection, a supplementary clean gain of so many months or weeks as the case might be. In the thirteen hundred's. Speakers of middle English borrowed the word resurrection. From Anglo-French originally, the word was used in specific Christian contexts to refer to the rising of Christ from the dead or to the festival celebrating this rising. Now known as Easter by the fourteen hundreds the word was being used in the more general sense of resurgence or revival. The Anglo French word has like axiom comes from the late Latin resurrect te'o, meaning the act of rising from the dead, which is derived from the verb researcher Ray, meaning to rise from the dead in earlier, Latin researcher rate meant simply to rise again and was formed by attaching the r e prefix to the verb.

Moby Dick Chapter Eight
"Welcome to five minutes in churches hosted by Dr. Stephen Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past travel back in time as we look the people events, and even the places that shaped the story of Christianity this is our story family history. Let's get started. Welcome back to another episode of Church history. Last week we were talking about the pulpit that Latin Word Putnam, and that object that appears in so many churches. Well, we also find the pulpit, appearing in of all places that great American novel by Herman, Melville none other than moby. Dick Moby Dick has one hundred and thirty five chapters. They have fascinating names like the shark massacre and interesting names, two of the chapters in particular come early in the book that have great names chapter nine is entitled the sermon. Sermon, Chapter Eight is entitled The pulpit so this is Melville's description of a pulpit of a fabled new. England church, it's sort of a conglomerate picture that Melville is putting together. And of course they are about to go out to sea questing after the great white whale, and before they go, all the sailors will show up that. Sunday in church to hear that sermon before they're sent off to see, and they might not come back again well. This is chapter eight on the pulpit. Let's read Melville's description. He tells us how he's sitting there. In the Pew of the Church and Father Maple comes in, and then he starts walking towards the pulpit. Melville says like most old fashioned pulpits. It was a very lofty one and since. Our stairs to such a height would by its long angle with the floor seriously constrict the already small area of the chapel, the architect it seemed had acted upon the hint of Father Maple, and finish the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular that is straight up and down side ladder like those used in mounting ship from a boat at sea. The wife of a whaling captain had provided the chapel with a handsome pair of red ropes for this latter. Halting for an instant at the foot of the ladder, and with both hands, grasping the ornamental knobs of those red ropes, Father Maple cast a look upwards, and then with a truly sailor, like, but still reverential dexterity hand over hand, mounted the steps as if ascending the main top of his vessel. Melville continues, nor was the pulpit itself without a trace of the same seat taste that had achieved the latter. It's paneled front was in the likeness of shifts, bluff bows and the holy. Bible rested on a projecting piece of scroll work fashioned after a ship's fiddle headed beak. What could be full of more meaning Melville asks. For the pulpit. Is Ever this Earth's foremost part? All the rest comes in its rear. The pulpit leads the world from thence. It is the storm of God's quick. Wrath is first descried, and the bow must bear the earliest brunt. From thence it is the god of breezes. Fair or foul is I invoked for favourable winds. Yes, yes, the world's a ship on its passage out not a voyage complete, and the pulpit is its prow. Well, that's from the pen of Melville. What a fascinating line he gives us. Did you hear it in that last paragraph I read and the pope it leads the world. Well. That's chapter eight. The pulpit from Melville's great novel. Some have called I. Know Dr Sprawl often called it the great American novel Moby Dick or The whale.

Moby Dick part twelve-Feast with Ahab, Ishmael at the mast
"Welcome through twelfth episode of my Literary Analysis Podcast Knight Ridder. Throughout the last episode, I've been moving through Moby Dick for you guys own perception of it. While uncovering Herman Melville philosophies the dark symbolism. And all of underlying themes. As. Well as telling you in a way that anybody can understand. Just. In case you haven't had the chance to move this wonderful story. Whatever. That reason may be. Now, the many themes I speak of in this book are ever present throughout its pages. Herman Melville. So easily put on display all that his heart, and so blatantly he wears on his sleeve. We can see clearly that the main character Ishmael is indeed in reality Herman Melville. In knowing this, we can dissect his character by reading through the novel. However, often times the themes of humanity are hidden behind her bosses or analogies or D. poetic insights. Herman rights with elegance few have ever matched and he used history emotion. Religion. And much more too intense effect on the reader. It's either be thrown off by this book initially. But. I welcome you to join me. For this novel should be enjoyed by everyone. Is. Full. Of Humanity beautiful imagery. Brotherliness Love Deception. Divine intervention. Revenge deceit. And even darker and lighter virtues. It is a book that is open to interpretation so ways. Something I speak of in my first episodes is typology in the way Herman used it to great effect. It's a way of smartly referencing ancient societies and texts such as ancient Greece or. The Christian Bible to provide the reader with underlying themes, strong foreshadowing, and so much more. I'm here to help you move through all this knowledge and place it in front of you and in neat and digestible meal for your mind. I hope you go back and listen to the beginning. because my episodes a great in order best for understanding. And I. Hope you enjoy. This episode is incredibly exciting and eventful. Are Stages set. are themes of vengeance are pouring through. Male or Herman Melville. Is. It clear minded well, rounded man. A man who loves his brothers despite, heritage? It has strong mannerisms. There are many many examples we can see through the first five episodes only. Further out. Now ishmail newfound and great friend. The, Cannibal tattooed quick is the same. We have our three mates, starbuck stubb, and flask. With respective, Harpoon Harry's quake. CAST. To go INDIGO. The mighty. Captain Ahab and we will soon see why he is so mighty. He's brought this crew aboard for dire act of vengeance upon a whale that took his leg. It's all disguised as a normal whaling voyage though. He is definitely deceiving his crew in many ways. In this episode though. We will see how he tricks the crew is agreeing to join him in the hut. Ismael has some sort thoughts on here though. They had. Terrible site. But strove whale is he doubtedly. Terrible. Could. Yes. What he really bring these crew down for such a terrible 'cause. I should have listened to that street profiting Liza. That ghostly crew I saw the boarding of. All the bad over his I experienced. Peter. Coffee powder. The reference to the biblical prophecy. Who? You, saw too much. But what could Mazzi? For his daily job, it hope line. Be overthrows terrible. I doubt it. ONTO HIS I asked for adventure and they got. The cabin table chapter three four. Goes into some humorous descriptions about the hierarchy of the ship and its officers. Let's get right to it. Great little chapter here. Evening is closing in on the P.. C. A new character referred to as simply doboy by his mates. The steward. who was in charge of the captain meals aboard ship? Not only that but. His face was rounded white. Resembling a piece of unneeded Oh. He comes up and announces to Captain Ahab that dinner is served. It had hardly seems to notice says he's observing the sun from the back of the vessel. He rises. Catching hold of the shrouds large metal bars that hold the mast up. He says. Dinner Mr Starbuck. And disappears down the scuttle into the. Cabinet. A HAB is referred to as Sultan here. Or a prince, a king. Some forms of Muslim culture the word. Emir. Is a general term for rulers, our military commanders. And so the first emir or starbuck first mate. Waits until he could no longer here the thought of a house wooded leg. Or ivory leg. starbuck rises. Takes a quick look about the biblical. which is a small wooden stand where compasses were placed. And he says. Dinner Mr Stubb. Heads down the scuttle? Second Mate Stub Also. Seems to purposely delay himself for a minute or so. Before heading down himself. The thirty Mir. Third Flask sees himself all alone. Looks around. Smile a bit. And enjoys his short moment without duty. It kicks off his shoes. Does a sailor's dance referred to as Horn pipe. Takes off hat and tosses it up on the shelf. or about halfway up the back most mast. It lands perfectly as if there was a shelf. As, he heads down he walks freely. But just before he enters the cabin doorway. He straightens his back in his face. Walks in calmly. We. As the reader see, the effect Ateb hasn't his mates. The power that he has over them. He truly is their ruler and commander here at C.. He owns them. I. Contract. Back then when you signed a contract, it was you signed your life. It was a true. it was held by law that you had to refer to Captain Sir and your mates as Mr an eye and all that stuff return or else you would be held against the law. Essentially dictator. Ishmail says, they enter the rumors objective. Whereas as a slave at this point Ishmael talks about some differences. Above deck, the mates have some kind of power, some kind of defiance and energy around their captain. But the second they are all alone in a room. There humbleness comes forward he sits at the head of the table as a king. Ismael asks. What is the difference? From up here to down there, it's almost comical. He makes a biblical reference. sear. Some typology that I mentioned? He mentioned a came from the Christian Bible. Bella. Czar King of Babylon. This king once had a great feast of bread and wine for over a thousand guests. Is Smell mentioned that one hosts guests to a meal. Is Almost magical force that leads the guests to be an utmost gratitude. He says, he who has died his friends has tasted what it is like to be king. And so. A half sits at the head of the long ivory inlaid captain's table. Like a mute see live on white beach. Surrounded by his wild but respectful cubs. They, sit in silence. As a habit serves himself. They were like little children to him. All were on his knife as he carved the district of have. A half motions toward starbucks played serves him. Cyber slowly cuts his meet. At if he didn't want to even scratch the plate mega south? As the all eight awful silence stub was relieved to hear a rat make a racket down in the hold. He stopped at the decks below. And poor little flask. He seemed the youngest child of the table. A, Hab never forbade them to serve themselves but flask wouldn't dare. He wouldn't even grab butter for. Biscuit. Whether he assumed, he wasn't status to deserve it. Butter was a high commodity we do not know. But as a reader, we definitely feel bad for him at this point. After dinner, they went up the opposite or the came down and the table was quickly and sloppily set for the head heart putters the wild quick. Cash to go and I google. If you'll remember they are all foreigners Klay Greg from some cannibalistic island. Tash ago a gay. Indian. and. Tall African. Med. The poor small white steward boy would hurry in and bring plates of food before them. As. They wildly chewed and Nash at their plates. It was a wild contrast to ten minutes before. If. The steward was not quake in his bringing the plates tasks to go. Long haired India's. With Dr to forego his backside like Harpoon. They even Hayes the poor buoyed held him down. Getting him ready for scalping test to go pulled out his knife. Will only playing with the boy though it's Hilarious as Herman Melville describes the poor stewards boys life as one continual lip quiver. She'd hide his little pantry peeping out waiting for them to finish their monstrous Mu. Quakes cannibalistic. Smack of the lips sounded horn to their stewart boy. Who nearly checked his own arbor teeth marks. The huge and long limbs set on the floor. We are told to feel bad for this guy he fares hard. He wakes accountable. He should carry a Napkin on his arm but a shield. Eventually. They leave back above deck. The meal is finished. Now I need to read you an incredible quote from the final paragraph of this chapter. That I will explain it in my understanding I quote. socially. Ahab was inaccessible. The family included in the census of. Kristen. He was still alien to it. He lived in the world. The last of Grizzly bears lived settled Missouri. As, Spring Summer had departed. That wild. Logan of the woods burying himself Mahalo of a tree. Lived out the winter they're. Sucking his own paws so His equiment. Howling old H set up in that cave chunk of his by. They're fed upon the sullen pause of its gloom. Unquote. So, here Ahab. Is referred to as a grizzly bear going into hibernation. An Indian tribe that was wiped out by white men. Leaving at his own small sheltered world. Is Old age a habit has retreated into the depth of his mind. Without any sustenance without any relief whatsoever. He's shut up and that cold dead shrunk. In his gloom. The symbolism here is drawn out for US plainly. He's a pain med. We, know this. The Madman. Chapter was provided here for some comic relief. Also to exasperate the effect Ahab. Hasn't his men. Now agreed to sort wonderful chapter narrated by our own Ishmael. It is called the masthead. Chapter Thirty Five. Is One of my favorite short chapters. Full of wonderful reflection.

Only two rods that you would place your feet on. The type of balancing, act. Is Smell. Describes it in great detail the loftiness and serenity of it all. Hundreds of feet up in the air alone. It seemed you're walking along the ocean on giant stilts with great lofty strides. He makes a point saying that the master constantly man. From, leaving port to returning. Until the very last minute. Ishmael reflects upon some historical topics and again displays could worldly knowledge Ishmael reflects plus historical topics and again displays his worldly knowledge. Let's move through these references. Says they're all very cool. Ismael guesses at the earliest standards of mass or the Egyptians. Thoroughly. He says that Babylonians were close second but since they're great tower fell to the winners of God apparently. He gives me the edge over them, this instance. He says, he gyp shins were a nation of masthead builders and not only for the sea. But he alludes to hear mates. And how they must have been used as a sort of astronomic lookout. For New Stars in the sky if you ever get a chance to see a historical ship that's fully rigged. Take. A look at how high the gallant mast is. Or ask. Your history. Instructor. On a three or four year voyage, the total collected our he was spent standing up there where amount to three or four entire months. So with the shame that. Somewhere you spend so much time is so uncomfortable. particularly in cold weather. With no protection from the elements you'd free not worth Dick Jacket. ishmail mentioned in old whaler called Captain Sleet who is believed to be the Arctic explorer for Britain. Of Scores Be. He invented a type of enclosed crow's nest. Current whaling vessels were unclouded that sort of being the.

Then up to the topsail yard. where he would swing a leg over and take a look across the watery field's. been up to his final destination. The Gal across yards. Ismael admits to the reader that he's very bad at keeping watch for anything at all well up there. This high altitude brings on deep thoughtfulness. wondrously floating across the sea if in a dream. It's meals depression that led him to sail in the first place. How could anyone keep good watch up here He warns ship owners of Nantucket to be wary of who you take sailing aboard your vessel. As any imaginative glad. That's interesting topic. Such philosophy are sure to daydream up there. He mentioned the character from a poem. Childe Harold pilgrimage written by English poet referred to often as Lord. Brian. It's a lengthy melancholy poll about a young depressed man travels to seize. That's very general description. He says that character would parts himself upon the masthead of whatever ship he was on. He says like like that character, he purchased himself up on the MASTHEAD and he says. I quote.

He mentioned distortion voters sees. which is a swirling massive. See that ancient philosopher one fear is the universe with made of. A wonderful chapter, I hope read it for yourself.

And I yeah now I like to share something small with you guys Herman Melville, obviously, if you've heard my prior episode, you know, my feelings towards him and his work right well, Herman Melville once lived in a home in Massachusetts called referred to as Arrowhead. That's where he spent a lot of his time and his I believe it's where he wrote Moby Dick and he spent a lot of time just like, you know keeping himself in there and writing so you can see pictures of it you can visit it is now a museum called Arrowhead and yeah, it's like a historical House Museum type thing. You just go there still see his desk when he wrote Moby Dick in a bunch of other cool things. I've never been there myself obviously, but I love to visit there one day as well his as his grave the be very important to me I had plans to do with this year, but obviously plans have changed for all of us. So anyways, Arrowhead Berkshire, it's really really cool and off the community their historical Community the people who work at the Museum are starting this really really cool thing due to the shelter in place and everything like that and they're encouraging us to Read Moby Dick if you never Read Moby Dick, Now is the perfect chance right?

So when I get to know me a little bit better say, what's that? I love that song and when it Dive Right In We've reached chapter forty-two and that's kind of mind-blowing to me. We have a long way to go a decent way to go. But the first half of the book is filled with so so much information off so much beautiful poetry your character development funny scenes interesting scenes poetic the writings that puts you right there. It's really cool to have found this far. We're going all the way and after this we're going to continue with other Classics like Three Musketeers All Quiet on the Western Front very exciting the night. We won't ever be going anywhere. It's going to be here Thursday morning show and I've dedicated myself to it. So chapter forty-two the whiteness of the whale this chapter is indeed about the color white and the history of the color white. It's going initially seem monotonous and mundane. However much his game here for the reader. What's interesting to me is here and read the insights of the Modern Age and what the color means to him in many cultural and historical references as per usual of Melville. We learn from history and how the color white can mean many different things to different people or Chrome. Ishmael Begins by telling us the whiteness of the whale is quite mysterious to him almost the most haunting thing about the whale using sure why though there have been much speculation Regarding why Moby Dick is light. Well why Herman made him that way We'll keep that in mind as we discuss it in depth eventually with that being said it's no goes on to make an attempt at painting for us why the whale being white is significant? He uses many examples and they're all real life painting. So let's check them out. many objects the whiteness of them can generally enhance the beauty of said object examples, he gives us Marvel's pearls pretty white flowers indeed Old Kings and ancient city called peguche near Thailand held the white elephant in very often regard the Hanoverian flag add-ons a great white running horse in the middle of it like Roman soldiers that wore bright white garbs. Seven points out the significance in this and how humans react to the color or lack of it the color white often represents gladness as a white stone in ancient Roman culture with Mark of a joyful day Indian tribes of early America gifted a white belt. That was the highest honor to receive. White can represent nobility and innocent Ennis. Think about the bride's white dress. In some instances and In some cultures the color has been made to represent Divinity and power such as an ancient Persian religions of fire worship or Greek. Mythology wage just takes the form of a great white bull. Also, we see who paintings of such these examples. Other cultures stories of sacrificing snow white animals and other stuff like that. This is all its trees striking true. I mean look up images hanging in paintings in churches wherever you see this whatever entity you see Are they usually draped with a bright white light and pop culture isn't being born depicted by a bright white light at the end of a tunnel same when someone dies in the show, the movie whatever you're moving towards the light. What other examples of this can you think of? That being said though, it's mail says here. That was all of its beauty. There's something striking and fearful about it even more so than a flash of red blood. something that's unaccounted for so think about people saying their life flashes before their eyes right before they die. When the color white is not part of something wholly or beautiful and you put it into something terrifying that light color will intensify said horror. Let's think of some modern examples. The first thing that comes to mind aircraft, especially the gigantic airliners and blimps of white tremendous and frightening time. Can you think of other modern examples Herman describes the whiteness of bears and Frozen climates and tropical great white sharks. I said many a time that Herman Melville is quality of something in his lifetime of writings. But if sometimes the excessive need to explain himself, he dedicates pages that entire chapters even explaining why he has said something or why he feels a certain way. I'd imagine this stem some sort of insecurities in his writings. This is completely normal. I'm also aware that Herman Melville receives much criticism in his writings. So it could be something to do to that. It can be off-putting summer time to go to the average modern reader and even if Herman Melville's personal letters to his close friends. He sent out letters explaining letters explaining letters home. It's a bit funny. Actually. I love the guy. We'll see this often and I'll point it out. Hello this chapter Herman Melville. Add some notes explaining why he mentioned said animals. He says someone could argue about the reasons. The polar bear is so scary to us in person is because it's pure contrasts of beautiful and dangerous. But he argues that regardless if it weren't for its whiteness, it wouldn't be quite as scary to us. He mentions the white Albatross beautiful large seabird one of my favorites and one that I had a run-in personally with last year's for dying would in fact you may have heard my poem inspired by Herman Melville. It's called I released my bird, please go listen to episode nine. I believe it is check it out. Very close to my heart. Well, he discusses the white Albatross and tells us a short story of the first time. He laid eyes on wood and how majestically beautiful it was. It's really a gorgeous passage. So make sure you don't miss it. He goes on to describe other beautiful white animals and gorgeously poetic fashion. How some people can complain about this chapter I do not know I see that far too much. It seems so many people feel of pressure to just like the book for its stigma of being a class. This year are missing out, huh? Well, I'm glad you've given a chance and you're here with me. I've heard some truly terrible things that have historian you really hurts my heart and mind to hear that. We're all entitled to our own opinions and not everyone's going to like the same thing. Anyway, Herman Melville in this time of writing has some what we would Now call questionable sayings. People mention different races blatantly and sometimes brashly. It was a different time. No doubt. So please take all racial things on this show with a grain of salt can bear with me. He asked us what it is that makes the albino man's so shocking to the I He says it in a way much harsher than not though. Take the racial aspect out of it and he has a point. There's nothing wrong with the albino mad. But there's something oddly striking about them can be difficult to look away. It's what he says. We hear about names that humans have given different things over the histories. We hear about the paleness of a Dying body how appalling that can be. He calls it the power of the Dead. Can we rap are dead is cleaned white cloths? Why is that? Even our human superstitions prove his point as we depict ghosts and Phantoms to be a milky white. And even death himself doesn't describe his writing a Pale Horse. And the Bible at the end of the Revelation those redeemed are said to be wearing white clothes whether it's good or bad. Nobody can deny the wage found this of the lack of color and its effects on us. Herman asked himself in the reader to desperately try to figure out how this all is what this comes from. He does say to keep your imagination about she's a while reading this. He speaks geographically discussing white mountain ranges versus blue ones the different way we think of them. Indeed large white mountain ranges seem more frightening, even the names of the Seas when a sailor. Here's the term the whites. He's he's stuck with a odd and overbearing feeling of restlessness. Yet when they hear the Yellow Sea they think of mild afternoons are soft waves. It's all the same motion just the term can change your outlook. He confesses that why does not the first thing you think of when we think of something frightening? And keep your imagination about you. When a sailor passes by the treacherous white snowy mountains the Andes and Guru chill run through this man with the thought of solitude and desolate nice and that High Country. He speaks as a western man, viewing his snowy Fields with not a shout out to tape the vast white blanket. Now this mail and Herman Melville see something very significant. It's one of my favorite parts of the chapter. ship name Can you imagine it? Give it a bit. You have any idea that types of Gail's you feel like see with no Solid Ground to plant your feet upon. Possibly being suspended far above the boat building all splitted ropes. The winds so strong that tears the words right from your lips. Shut your eyelids for you. Not to mention the Frosted Kerry leaves on your body and clothes for soaked through. shivering and hot Shipwrecked instead of rainbow speaking. Hope and Solace to this, Missouri. If you use what seems a boundless graveyard greeting upon him with his lien, I found him into splintered crosses. Yeah a mass grave for us this month. Methinks this chapter about Witnesses a white flag on out from a craving soul. So we see Romanticism tragedy here. We see the main character speculating on our world. All of its Mysteries our instincts fear home so much more here continues on a bit though mentioning the veil of the Christian deity. Jesus Christ just shines bright white the color or lack of fact that we call White being the intensifying agent here. So it's real dumb questions all colors. When we consider the theory of natural philosophers and scientists who tell us that color is not truly. They're not present any substance. It is only at the seat of the mind and eyes wage. The suite tinges of skies and woods and sunset the Gilded velvets of butterflies all these colors do not lay within the object but are pasted on from without. And that which provides color light which Herman Melville says remains white or colorless itself. It's no wonder this way. It was so terribly feared. So we took a beautiful depiction a look at colors the black of color. We are into secrets of humanity in these passages box that are present all of us but lie dormant This is what this book brings to our forefronts in our minds. It's beautiful. It can seem redundant to the modern quick thinker speak such lengths about a lack of color slow your mind down Place yourself back to a time when the world moves slow. Humans had much more time to ponder such things and two days of the deeper layers of them self these layers that remain untouched in our modern society. What we lack Invasion Herman Melville makes up for exponentially. As we are blinded by modern Technologies and such making us believe we are so much more advanced than our past brothers and sisters, but we fail to see what stands for intelligence we can fly around the world and a matter of hours, but could we take a deeper? Look at the meanings of life itself in such matters at Melville discusses. Think about it. It's time we moved back in just an action and we are back on the pequod but below deck this time. Chapter is a bit mysterious calls back to some early feelings from the book. It's called hark which can mean to listen intently pay attention. Two Sailors of unknown character Marshall and passing the Scuttle Bug. It's a freshwater along working hard below deck. They are both of different races. What is named caboclo? The other ones named Archie? One of them claims to hear some noises from deep within the hold. Let's take a listen. Do that. It cost them from below the hold. And he's again. Oh gosh the bucket Along. Come on no time for that. I don't hear anything. Come on the bucket art should come on. Hm. I don't know about that. I've got some sharp ears made coffee damned. You always hearing things ship my truck roll with you. There's nothing down that possible, huh? Yeah. Well great away. I know what I heard plus I heard Starbuck and stop talking about something rather mysterious yesterday. I reckon a have no something over as well. Keep an eye out. There could be like, oh I so what's going on here what's being hinted at? Who are what is hidden on the ship and why who knows about it? It's quite odd, we'll have to wait and find out but it'll certainly be significant. Now this time to hear a bit about Ahab inside of his cabin as he messes with the seat Sharjah. I love how you smell is able to tell us of what goes on inside of a heads mind side of his cabin such a delicate balance from narration of coming from Ishmael and have a name that it's amazingly poetic and very telling of the character. Chapter forty-four the chart a hub is in his cabin after the night of the terrible squall. Outcome rolls and rolls of all the other features it spreads them on his table that screwed down intently studied the maps and courses slowly marking with his pencil here and there. In this chapter, we proposed the idea of what it's called season on the line. Which is a collection of sperm whales whereabouts and passed around the world from the prior Year's feeding Seasons migrations and such. We told how impossible of a task it seems to track down one single whale and yet through 1/2 Madness and use of these charts. He has vague ideas. He knows where the whale has been sighted. Usually we're in general. He feeds and yet this information is not entirely credible. It cannot be assumed that the whale will surely be where he was cited every year or the year prior, but it is reasonably probable. We're told that when these whales migrate they follow what are called veins which are wide Contracting and expanding tubular Paths of the depths that the whale uses to help him on his way home. Wherever that maybe these past are generally unknown in their whereabouts to men. But my general knowledge of the whereabouts Wales can be hunted for but who's to say the same heard that was pressing at a certain feeding grounds the year prior were the same heard that comes this year's season. So a table sits and delve into these maps and I see marks the paper some invisible pencil seems to be adding depth to the lines on his forehead. He's got it amazed before him on the for ocean sharks as a heavy pewter lamp swings above him. This was a nightly routine for Edmund must have been maddening. since the peak oil left Nantucket is since the pequod left Nantucket had begun a dizzying zigzagging of the globe. You can actually look up maps of the Pequod's path. It's really cool. We're told that Ahab will pour himself over these Maps until he becomes short of breath fear of never finding that way again so much so that it comes up on deck for fresh air. And it has transfers of Torment. He goes back down to his maps and when he sleeps he sleeps with clenched fists and wakes his buddy Nails in his palms often Awakening in a frenzy what he would yell and Shout burst from his room or as though his bed was on fire. And indeed there was a heat inside of Ahab a widening mouth of hell. This mail recognize that his soul seeking escape this real recognize that this is his soul seeking an escape only being reasonable. Well Ahab asleep and far away from Earthly mind and revenge. We're told that his Spirit peers out from vacant eyes tormented and he was as a ray of light living with nothing shine upon and no object to color. The ending of this chapter is incredible. Was shown so much more of a house Madness and torment in chapter gives us even more depth to ahab's character and ishmael's insights and premonitions. Now we move on to chapter 45 the affidavit we're told by the narrator that the prior chapter needs some explaining this is Shirley Herman Melville interesting here in this chapter. He provides us with personal accounts of Wales and wailing Adventures. So as to prove the Merit of this story is not just a legendary tale. He wants us need that there is much truth here not only in the characters and situations, but all things regarding Wales. He wants us to know that he knows what he's talking about here and he has proof to back up all of his claims. He plainly states that he does not want Moby Dick just be a monstrous Fable or even worse in intolerable allegory. This speaks greatly of Melville's vision for the story. It has been said that this book is a metaphor for many different things. Miss all live in the eyes of the mind of the reader and their perception. We all have a right to our own perceptions and opinions and I've sharing mine here with you all. Herman Melville is always wanted to explain himself and back himself up and rightfully, so they'll sometimes this has been done to a fault. Readers can easily be put off how often does a book stop to explain itself very very rarely, but this book is not one of the ordinary know if so, we cannot approach it by ordinary means this is just one reason why I've created this podcast will come a time in this show when we discussed deeply people's perceptions and understandings of this book. Took what it means if you want sexuality the government in nature opinions have spanned the gamut We will deep dive into them when the time is right for now. We'll hear more about this. I say let him explain himself. Do you keep our minds open or do we hold our self to self set standards of what we were taught education is very important obviously, but has become a rigorous and Rule infused world the world of literature. I'm not sure this before. But it is something that I'm not always on the same page with so to speak. I'm often language in the correct use of it. But what constitutes for professional art can writing still be good and classic you considered art if it contains errors. I'm not just talking about typos and editing errors. By modern standards. This book is legendary book is full of grammatical errors or everywhere. As I mentioned. This book was not recognized as great. I am not at all. Not until it's brilliant author had been well past. Don't hold too close to rigorous rules of art, especially when you're creating your own. You may be hindering something truly beautiful. Do you see where I'm coming from? So this mail or Herman Melville tells us he's personally experienced three instances where what he said in the prior chapter proves true. There's also something I mentioned twice since the beginning of the show. Well as a sailor Melville witnessed a whale being harpooned that Harpoon having a specific Insignia on it when that was personal to the crew. He sailed with three years later off while fishing in the same area the same way it was again darted and pulled the board. It pulled the old irons from Depot his flesh and there's no mistaking that Insignia upon the harpoons home that's proving the possibility of finding the same way albeit racing. It's feeding patterns. Okay, Herman, very good. That list does example some names of other sea creatures in Wales that have been popular enough to receive a name which Melville says as a privilege in itself. All these creatures were eventually captured off said here that most landsman have vague ideas of the harsh realities of wailing and sailing the danger in depth of the whale Fishery and yet they have no Vivid understandings of these things and we're met with something quite compelling. It shows the age of the book in the time and it presents to us a helpless feeling of realization. Harkins even more here in modern times sure many disasters in the world or in the fishery append written or travel by Word of Mouth whatever it may be. That number is a great. But the number pales in the light of the truth of the hundreds of untold stories and happenings at sea. You suppose should say that that poor fellow there in this moment. Perhaps caught off the way line off the coast of New Guinea. He's being carried down. Down to the Bottom of the Sea by the sound of the violin. Suppose that poor fellows Naval appear in the newspaper tomorrow morning now. Tomatoes are very regular between here and New Guinea after all. You know will tell you that one particular Voyage, which I made to the Pacific among many others. We spoke very different shapes. every one of them have death by the whale some of the more than wanted three that had each lost of boat crew after God's sake the economical with your lamps and your candles men off on account of bad, but at least one drop of men's blood will spill for So this is very powerful it still Rings true today and many ways point that the made here is Wales are enormous truly wage powerful. The smart they can be terribly terribly dangerous. We'll give it a few real life examples of dangerous whales destroying and sinking ships the first example being that of the SX a great ship that was sunk by a sperm whale in fact. It's an incident that flashing popular in history and said to be an inspiration for the novel we're reading right now. First hand Reports say that just before the whale ran into the boat. They had accidentally crashed into three other whales that were in the same pack. It is said that the whale acted in a fit of anger and revenge you'd be the judge on that. Wouldn't hold of some examples in history books and other people the author knows showing us Prime examples of the dangers of sperm whales. What you do with a few descriptive and frightening passages regarding this? There's a melting point of the author being this the maliciousness of these creatures their Incredible strength endurance. Even while being hunted there are examples in history of Wales. Joe's Towing entire great vessels with the lines that were thrown into them. If you have a horse would pull a carriage other significant details such as this are penned here. It is said that if a whale is given time to retaliate it absolutely will and what makes it seem more deliberate is the time in between when the way I was first Struck it lashes out in a blind rage. But sometimes these we have will be struck and down into the deep. They swim with the line from their backs. Only to come back up 15 minutes later and swing the great fluke straight out the boat splintering into pieces. This is highly significant to our understanding of these creatures and the time. we're reminded that even the most marvelous passages in this book or a thing of reality or at least they were Now, he's proper Herman Melville fashion the chapter ends with one last great push to the meeting with some type of logical thinking Melville speaks of an ancient Christian historian called Procol. It tells us that he is by far the most trusted in done exaggerating historian of the ancient Christian century. We're told of an old story that said near Constantinople a great sea monster was captured from the sea of memora after had destroyed many vessels in the area over a period of fifty years. It is not mentioned in this historical collection. What kind of animal or most of this was Herman Melville's inclined to think that there must have been a whale and a sperm whale in his opinion he tells us why it is because of his studies and understandings only sperm whales can and we'll feed and not Mediterranean area. So concludes this chapter that provides a wealth of knowledge of food for thought now before we get back into the present action get the witness our first lowering and Hunt which is incredibly exciting. We met with one more chapter called surmises chapter is very short and surmises which devices which means to supposed something is true without any evidence sample consists of Ishmael time with different ideas regarding Ahab in the whale where he presents different hypotheses. He wonders if they have hatred for the whale has spread to all sperm. Whales receives Ahab could take far too much delight not to them. And what about the crew? What about Starbuck? They had must use what tools he has available to him to accomplish this dire task. These men of his tools. You have all tools in this world men are the most apps to getting out of order free thinkers. Are we? Hey, how does worry that they will lose some of the tasks and he understands very well how much Starbuck despises his quest so much. So that is too much time passes before they find that whale Starbuck we start a rebellion against the captain. Well, it had to find a way to keep them on the short leash. Keep them focused on his end game. He decides to offer them even more cash. He analytically thinks about his crew and the journey he has growing anxieties of the crew attempting to overthrow him and wrestle the command of the ship from his grasp. Realizes he will have to act as a normal Captain lay low a bit keep the crew in line still though. He commands the crew to keep a constant Lookout in the shout out at any moment. You see anything at all? We're giving a hit that this vigilance will prove worthwhile. Very sooner. This chapter has been self-explanatory. So I greeted with a new chapter called the mapmaker the first time in quite a while we seek wagon Ishmael spending some quality time together. It is a lazy cloudy afternoon to see. Shipmates were lazing about the Dex and gazing out vacantly at the gray Waters this scene freedom from action. It was a dream like afternoon and together Creek wagon Ishmael crafting a woven mat of rope that is called Florida and refused to help with the chasing parts of the ship Ishmael continues pressing on to the reader the dream like state of the scene with all the way over silently daydreaming to themselves. Nobody talking and only the sound of the ropes dragging against each other. They smell makes a very cool illusion. He felt as he was crafting some Loom of time disputing the threads of fate. He speaks of waving his threat of Life leaving his own destiny. And this costs back to the main theme of this book that we spoken of quite a lot. Destiny manifestation not sort of things he continues to make some cool visual examples for us. And I wonder where the idea of this team came from what just happened by chance, but it's beautiful. There's no holds the ropes and quickly moves the sword over and under the weave the ropes against tough with his indifference. No sword. Sometimes struck crooked sometimes straight sometimes soft. Sometimes hard. You smell like it's a sword strikes to Champs wage. If what they are making is a threat of time and ishmael's input is his lifetime and the random Source strikes of the thread must be the chance of Life are free will so to speak as it will affect the final product the final outcome. It seems incredible passages in reading this book cuz I still find things that I never saw before but I take different angles each month, but I see now that this scene is not without reason Ishmael and queequeg of intertwined their lives along with everyone on this ship within their imprisonment. They still have their free will often but when they clinched their oats and decided to go sailing together there so tied that not a friendship and filled the deal of their faith. Take this passage as you will but in this dream like and thoughtful State they are in there suddenly broken from it by the incredible sound. It's a very striking moment and important for the metaphors as well because the dream like state is broken and Ishmael drops his quote free will unquote or the thread for the ground the sound he describes as wage actually came from far above and the crosstrees he gave us up if he's far above him the gay head long haired idiot. Gosh. She go You still with one arm stretched out far and pointing an intervals continued his war-cry which is described as inhumanly loud.

The Melancholic Moss Mansion- Billings, Montana
"Welcome back. Thanks for tuning to haughtily yours a podcast for the paranormal I am MDC Aurora. Can I invite you to get together with me each episode to hear chilling tales of those who have let us behind? If. You would like to have a particular story told on our PODCAST, drop us a line. Add Huntley you're podcast gmail.com or give us a call at eight, zero, four, six, eight, four, one, six, four, four. Episode Number Five and today we will be taking a look at Moss Mansion in billings Montana. has anyone ever been to Montana by any chance Hey. I know I. Haven't. It doesn't mean I'm not any less intrigued by the stories I've heard or the pictures that I've seen I love trampoline and if it involves goes store a haunted building yummy Anaheim. Usually they're guaranteed no ifs ands or buts about it. If we were to take a drive through the highly populated city of billions, you see a city that is really larger than life itself. It wasn't always like that. billings came from more humble beginnings. Done on the corner of division and Clark. Street lies a historic site known as Moss Mansion. Currently, it is owned by the city billions and the Montana historical society. Okay. I have just hinted at history at least twice within the last minute I'm sure you guys get where I'm going with this. The Moss Mansion. Is a historical museum and it's haunted. We'll get to that last bit a little later. Don't you worry? The mission of the museum today is to preserve, collect, describe, interpret, and exhibit artifacts and documents relating to the eighty three year occupancy of the Preston. Be Moss family. In. Other words it should be remembered as an iconic home. Why you may ask because it used to be one from the moment you step to restore as you. You feel it within your bones your at home if you were to take a look around the main floor of the. Echoes at the pass would soon be ringing in your eardrums. Oh. The dinner parties that were once had the the cookies that were made in the kitchen, the plane of old records as you dance the night away. It could give you goosebumps if you allowed yourself to get lost in it for too long. Think of it as taking a time traveling trip back to the year one, thousand, nine, hundred, three when the Moss family has resided there. You stand in awe as you gaze at the Marble fireplaces. handpainted ceilings and walls, wood paneling, and the extravagant decor. That's all over the place. All of the rooms are filled with furniture drapes. Carpet's original fixture is an artifacts all belonging to the Moss family. Why there is Melville's harbor coolest quilt and needlepoint and Martha's China China patterns as well as her original artwork. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, this would be the place that Missouri born Preston Be Moss, would bring his new bride to start a new. He saw the generous potential that the railroad talent billings Montana had to offer. It just so happen that our Fran pressed him with very blessed in the investment field later on, he actually developed the economy of billions in before you know it folks realize, Hey, this guy is a mover and shaker he gets stuff done. Mr Moss became a big time investment banker did a lot to bring jobs and modern conveniences to the town of billions. He actually started the first dial telephone company. He also founded a newspaper that predates the billings gazette and even started a central heating company. I'm going to stop right there because those are just a few. Of His many accomplishments. Preston and Martha eventually thought it'd be best if they built a bigger house for their growing family, they already had two kids and the project began in nineteen one and was designed from start to finish by none other than Henry. Janeway Henry. Jingwei, he was the New York architect responsible for the Waldorf Astoria Plaza. allo-. It was built by engineers RJ hardened Berg and eh gag non the interior design firm who took care of the interiors was the Nelson Company of Chicago. The manager would see its completion by nineteen o three. So it took about two years. Now. Guys I stopped and I did a double take when I first read what Peat Moss spent on the completion of his home, the national average of his time. To spin on a building. Of A home was five thousand dollars now five thousand dollars today. That's a drop in a hat from most people. But in his time. That was kind of a big deal but. Moss oh? No No, no no. No. He went far beyond the five thousand dollars. He spent a whopping wait for it. One hundred, five, thousand dollars one, hundred, five, thousand dollars in nineteen. Oh, three I don't even want to sit down and try it and brought my mind around. What that would equate to today. To be fair though the mansion is truly one of a kind it is absolutely breathtaking is located on a two acre lot. Completed Mansion Stands at forty five feet, tall three stories, high twenty rooms and cat celerion where they grow plants and vegetables. Oh, did I mention it has basement? then. We look at the dining rooms, the parlor, the bathrooms, the city in rooms, the closets, the garden rooms, and libraries which are scattered all throughout the mansion. It could even this house it could even hold the largest of families. The press in Matas has wife Martha Martha's parents and happy couples children. Woodson Jackson. Kula Melville Hollingsworth pressed and boyd-moss Junior David Hickman mosque the third and Virginia would soon fillets halls with the sounds of their habit. Happy laughter. From what history tells US Moss family? Lived, happy lives while under the roof of the match. Their family had it from nineteen zero, three to one. Thousand Nine, hundred, eighty, four. That's a long time. Eighty three years. Can you imagine all the memories that have been left behind that place? In the attic, you can find chalk drawings on on the wooden beams in the ceiling from the children when Houston play up there. So why is it haunted? Then that's why we're all here. Right that's why you guys are listening right now. Why is this place haunted? I think that's a very good question. Let's take a further look at the history. Here's what I know. Several Moss family members died in the house throughout the years this makes sense to me is people who die in their homes ten to come back to haunt them later. I've seen him more than once over the years they return to what is comfortable. Then they become confused when they find someone else living in what used to be there. The youngest of the mosque children. Virginian. Unfortunately died of diptheria just three months after turning five years old in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eight. Preston Be Moss died of a heart attack in February of nineteen forty seven as White Martha more Mattie as he affectionately called her died four years leader of a cerebral hemorrhage in November of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one. Finally the last Moss Family Member Melville Moss passed away in the comforts of her childhood home in November of nineteen eighty four. Shortly before Melville's passing is about the time the. Paranormal activity in the house started up almost right away. It, was assumed. That it was little Virginia coming back to help her sister. Passover. The question here is. Did she really come back. No one else seems to really know the answer but. Has Been Seen on multiple occasions. One evening, the meant the event manager was breaking down and cleaning things up after a prestigious event that had taken place. She was carefully holding up some tables when all of a sudden she heard two distinct voices chatting very low. She couldn't hear what the voices were saying nor could she tell where they were coming from? Rationalizing the situation she thought about house. Could easily carry into the building from outside. She went to the side door poked her head. Oh. No one was there. All was quiet. Quiet as a mouse. Just as she began to pull her head back into the room, she heard the laughter of a little girl from behind her. Taking a deep breath she whipped around to see who is there and Once, again found no one. The two voices kick back up from summer within the house. The event, the event manager, she could tell. Where are they were this time but she knew she was the only person in the house. Okay her machination was getting the better of it had to had to be this when. When it came time to leave she thought about it and said, you know what? I should probably set the security lawn that way if someone. is in the house, it'll get tripped on the way out the door. Well the next day came in the of the event manager discovered. The alarm never went off during the night. Okay. It had been ghost. Question Mark. Many other instances, visitors and staff members have reported seeing young Virginia peaking around the magnificent magnificent staircase to the Great Hall where her parents love to host lavish parties. For some reason, lots of people report seeing orbs in this area as well. They've captured them in photographs. I'd like to think it has a lot to do with the energy in this particular area and it's obviously very active so you're bound to catch a few things. According to the Montana, Paranormal Research Society. It seems that Melville was sleeping in a bed in the alcove at the master staircase because Melville couldn't go up the stairs to the bedroom. The night nurse was always nearby within earshot of Melville's bed sleeping on a cot in the hallway, the kitchen. One night the nurse was awakened by sounds coming from Melville's area she went and found that Melville was fine but Some for some reason she. Thought her eyes were playing tricks on her. She saw what looked like the apparition of a little girl probably around five years old standing on the landing near the master staircase. The child was also seen hovering over Melville later on just moments before her death. Other haunting in the house include disembodied voices of. Adult females singing. Strange shadows and the billiards room lobby area. Cool wins swirled around a person's body the apparition oppressed in Moss walking down the master staircase. Doors that open close at random the apparitions of an older woman and little girl. uncomfortable. Presences. In. Certain. Rooms. Need I say more. Paranormal investigators were asked to come in at one point because the staff couldn't explain what was happening. It was determined that there was paranormal activity going on in the house but who the spirits worry exactly. That remains to be seen. They held another investigation was in order to collect more concrete evidence. During their stay investigators came into contact though with one entity that preferred to herself as Melville. Numerous Times. They also discovered the older woman and little girl who seemed to stay together. Footsteps were heard an empty halls and when they try play music in the French polar. They swear they saw the shadow of a person emerged just near the harp. Since then other stories have emerged. A mother and her family were passing to billings. Montana on their way to South Dakota one beat awful summer. She thought stopping and Moss Mansion sounded like fun. She read it was a historic site maybe the kids could stand to learn a thing or two. Will tour didn't exactly go over well with the kids no surprise there. Why why would they care about some old people who died in a big house? There were too young to understand her too young to appreciate it. On top of that, the tour guide had mentioned that some people speculate the houses haunted. It was as simple as that. She said no more on the matter and continued with her spiel. Mom's spent the rest of the tour. Comforting. The kids with hugs and laughter as they were now freaked out about possibly encountering ghost. As, the family entered what used to be a little Virginia Moss's bedroom. The tour guide mentioned that they weren't allowed to use any air fresheners or candles in the house said due to the fact that it's a historic site. New. Sooner they walked in though they were all hit with the overwhelming fragrance of oranges. They were all confused the rooms smell delicious but they could not for the life of them figuring out where the smell was coming from. There was no one else in house either. So, where did the smell of fresh oranges come from exactly? Mom thing the guy for time and as they partway, she thought to herself. I don't believe in goes, but boy was that an unusual experience. She just knew deep down something was off. and. Another insist two young ladies were traveling home from party. When they decided it'd be fun to stop at the Moss Mansion and take a few photographs from the outside. It is supposed to be one of the most haunt buildings billings after all. They drove up to the House got out of the car with their cell phones ready to take some pictures. As they approached. The front door of the mansion, they both froze in their tracks. There in the doorway was the apparition of a woman and a little girl with fancy hairdos who looked. Who looked like they had just been ripped straight from the pages. Of. The eighteen hundreds. History. You'd be young ladies gasped as their hearts leapt into their throats the woman in the little girl they look so beautiful. WHO WERE THEY TO DISTURB THEM Not, moving any further, they lifted their cell phones and switched over to camera mode. Without another moment to lose the the beautiful woman girl dissipated into the cool night air leaving those two young ladies with much to think about. Rumor has it. According to teenage boys reside in the area that if you stand on the sidewalks in front of Moss Mansion late at night, you will see things. How. Does this work exactly? Well, it's like this. It has to be one am. Now I know it's not quite the witching hour but various boys have all said they all attest to this fact one am is the key time to do this. Go to the mansion in stand on the sidewalks out front. Block out all sounds from around you. Focus look at the third story windows and there you will see looking back down at you. The Moss family. Laser. John. We. Looked at the history briefly you we've heard the ghostly tales. Is the MOSS mansion haunted. Ogle's sure seem to think so. If the mansion is haunted, why so? Personally. I think there are multiple reasons why the place is haunted for starters six family members died while leaving under that very roof family who? Left loved ones behind and never got the chance to say goodbye family who are also now wondering who exactly is in their home then we have to consider the fact that a lot of original moss family items are still. In, that mansion today. I wouldn't be surprised at all if some of those spirits are attached to any of those items. Believe it or not. I actually took a three sixty tour of the house and got to know what a little bit before recording this particular episode for my podcast. It's incredibly beautiful. Beautiful, place. Breathtaking. He. Here are some closing thoughts for you. One family lived in that house. That's it one family. Remember them for more than just their ghostly tales. I encourage you. Go for up to read more about them learn of the historic footprints that they left behind us. The House inside now is like a special photograph which allows the Moss family to be frozen. In time. I think. Blame Shakespeare can. Sum this up as for us, he wants wrote life is but a walking shadow. Poor player that struts and frets says our upon the stage. And then heard from no more.

You're going to see a theme here. which is the hint, but but I don't think it's going to be tough, so I'm really excited about it. All right with that said. Do you WanNa go first to me I? Don't care. Doesn't matter. Who I last time I. You went I. Let you go I. All Right, so my story. This week is a true story. Like. Goods more like a history or biography. If you will I got my information from huff Po quarterback Electra and wikipedia. I am talking about his seuss Melinda. Hasas Melville Mile veterinaries at three words malware malware. This is the last name his who saw it okay, got it okay. Mild where they're just doing that, so you repeat it more times for the listeners currently has sue. Smell is considered a folk saint, more specifically nocco Santo, meaning a saint that is worshipped or followed by those involved in the drug cartel. it cannot be verified of his who's actually ever lived, but there a legend that follows him Oh. He's not guaranteed to have been a real person. Okay, some say that he's a combination of other people that live in the kind of formed into this about ALGA nation of their stuff, but nobody knows for sure exactly yeah, so. aside from being a nautical Santo, he is also known as the generous Bendit and the angel of the poor because he is seen as a kind of Mexican robinhood. Oh super cool. because not only did he steal from the rich to give to the poor, but also because when he did this, he exposed a corrupt dictatorship that kept socially and economically poor communities from able to succeed Oh. Wow, yeah. If in fact, he d in the. That's very relevant today. If in fact, he did indeed exist. He was said to be born Huss. Ma Muscle in eighteen, seventy and seen Alabama. And became abandoned after his parents died simply from being poor either from hunger or disease that they could not afford to get treated. From that day forward, he decided he would avenge their deaths by doing whatever it took to keep more people in his community from also dying from poverty. His Sousse was nicknamed Algorithm by his wealthy victims. Because Melville Means Literally Evil Green Oh like something green. Yeah, okay, got it. Yeah the Malone okay, here's said to be one of the most wanted bandits in Mexico at one time, and had a hefty price on his head from the governor of the state of seen allure. After years of Robin Hood and he was said to die at the age of thirty nine hooding like that at the he died at the age of thirty nine in nineteen o nine some say he died after being betrayed and killed by a friend, other stories claimed that he was caught, and then either shot or hanged by the police. Legend says due to all his quote, evil doings. His body was denied. Proper burial was left to rot in public as an example, a Wa. And because of this, people started throwing rocks at his bones. UNTI- until it was completely buried. supposedly like throwing them on top to kind of cover it up. Oh, that's super cool. You walk by and Toseh- tons rock all supposedly throwing stones onto the bones, or at least they think was seen as a sign of respect, giving the deceased the right to make a petition for their spirit. Oh Oh, that's super cool. Yeah I didn't know that I think that's. Interesting yet it's super interesting. Is from that moment that people begin to look at me as a saint thinking that he would help them out as he as thanks for giving him a proper burial. now his praise by cartels is a little convoluted, but according to some the association is actually a strategy of there's. you because they utilizes image as a generous Bennett to spend their own images as the Robin Hood Type Oh God. So word a cartel, but we're doing this to the. Fuck the system. Okay, got it. Historic as historian put it if they do so quote, merely stealing from rich drug addicted gringos, and giving some of some of their wealth back to the scene Loa towns form of schools, road improvements community celebrations. So of course, cartels are not the only ones who look up to the Saint, and he is not utilized just to be able to grab miracles you see people will donate money and food to his shrine, which is then used used as needed for the poor, so they can take the money or the food. If they need it, you know so in some not quite so literal way. He is still providing to the poor interesting. Wow, the first original shrine for Malval malware, there was built in on the capital of lower in the nineteen seventies. That site eventually became a parking lot, but dot's have revived and made it in unofficial shrine, where many together pilgrimage to to give offerings to their beloved Saint I WanNa look that up I was it was a averse to parking lot meaning. It was so busy that it was. It was a little. Devotees seek out help from his suit me. They're usually when it comes to health money family problems, unrequited love employment. Educational Challenges Legal Issues. Arrest Imprisonment, crop failures and business issues. for those who look up the saint. When asking him for something or those who look to the same when asking him for something, they make a promise in return, which if they don't make good on their part, it will then turn into a curse. Oh, Gosh, okay. He is said to protect and help anyone who needs it. No matter the social economic standing many look up to him because like them. He was once a common man, and therefore can easily be identified with. The drug money that has come in has helped elevate them over the following to a sort of cult status. As a result, there has been a boom of chapels, not only in Mexico, but in the US and Columbia as well. The downside being that when law enforcement see Mal mauvaise now well known image the assumed that. It is all in a connection to to drugs. Oh. Yeah, as what article I. Read, puts it quote. Mal. Veritas own struggle for existence in a society, denied by justice, created a hero in life and saint in death for the marginalized. And, so as a strange story of one angel of the poor has who small why that's so interesting. Wow, a couple things I. It's interesting a lot of times whenever you're not sure if the person really existed, it's because just like Robin Hood. They say they don't know if he existed. But, but those stores like they usually those people that usually in the fourteen or fifteen hundred like way back, where, but that's like the late eighteen early nineteen hundreds where we had much better written records, so it's interesting that we're not sure if he existed or not. and the second thing is. Do you think what if he has an outlaw? He's probably always on the run so probably nobody is never in one place at once. That's true, but you would think if that were the case. There'd be wanted poster. I know something I find out where to, but I think that's what adds to the mysterious of the mystery of that's true, and that's why also I wonder if he was given. The name has sues because of the G. Like Jesus well Oh. Funny that you go into I didn't go into this. Zelda made a lot longer, but one article I read is that there is a lot of. Parallels to Jesus because he is born on December twenty six, th so -posedly Oh wow, and like two. He served the marginalized communities. There's all these he's like. The only difference is obviously like the. Going against the government things. or working with drug cartels, but the idea refund all these parallels to Jesus and perhaps twenty became a saint. Wow, okay, super cool that I asked you. That's so neat all right so I'm going to keep. The topic had gone to sainthood going and I'm actually going to talk about Some of the most bizarre patron saints like he's like Catholic saints. What I've read, even though I'll talk about this in our lives hood that there's over ten thousand Catholic saints not notified. What's the word I'm looking is more beatified. Yes, something like that. The, word recognized a recognized. Because of the ones on this list I did not know of any of these because there. There's some weird saints out there, and so what I'm. GonNa talk about and so I actually kind of kept this article kind of or made him because the person wrote it. It's these are real saints this, but it's Kinda tongue-in-cheek, so it's fun like something you had right. That's why it's exactly what it is even a party. There's really fun so I found three five single down single down, narrowed it down to three. And the first one is Saint Barbara? Who is the patron saint of fireworks? BOUGHT ABOUT A. And try to harbor a AM trying to see if there's some kind of connection, but now so one. How'd you become a saint? While Barbara was daughter to a wealthy heathen named Diaz Chorus when she converted to Christianity he decided that the best way to demonstrate his displeasure would be to have her tortured, and then to behead her with his own hands, Oh my God. He killed his daughter, but while strolling home from an execution well done, he was struck by lightning and died. This proved once, and for all that the Christian God could cast lightning bolts with every bit the accuracy and velocity of Zeus so why fireworks will one because of the kind of the day? Use Mocking death of her persecutor. got into the machine. Yeah, it, entice to this where it's kind of a sometimes. There's a resolution to a story that. Isn't it? Just kind of comes from out of nowhere? It's like God somebody down, and it's a convenient way for authors who write themselves into a corner was super convenient here that godse strikes this guy down, but because of that Barbara. I invoke during thunderstorms, so people would be like strike this person down for me. Please got us of funder yet. Yet sounds like a Greek and even mentioned to Zeus, but then somebody invented gunpowder artillery, creating a whole industry where accidental sudden death was a daily risk great, what she like the patron saint of the revolution shattered event Oh. She could've been, but suddenly she's very popular, and all the explosion based activities, and she's a Patriot fan of fireworks. That is weird. You can invoke her next weekend. Oh, that's true. That's true. In a legal Arizona, can you do fireworks here? They sell the sound the. where? You have to be really confined. That's what I thought her. There's already been a lot of friars. There's one in Avondale up the street. Really who I thought like you couldn't do the America county like you could buy them. Which I had to take elsewhere. John and I'm not sure. Help us for the last segment for this. Saint is possible prayers to the Saint. Here's one I. Don't need all five back, but if you could help me, define the index and thumb. That'd be terrific. That's a fair. That was actually written house number two. Saint Drago Patriots Saint of unattractive people. Drago's mother. We need to notify. The belabor others. Because they call everybody ugly ugly. Do they really ugly ugly? Their saint so drug. US mother died during childbirth something he felt responsible for because I mean she died during childhood. So because of this, he practiced the extreme penance of self-flagellation. Flagellation at age eighteen he disposed of all pot on property, became a pilgrim, devoting his life to God witnesses claim in later life he could actually by locate, so he could in two places at once, and we talked about that in a previous episode so throwback. Go listen to it, and this person wrote. This terrible comment is Andro. Oh, he doesn't like. Soviet depends what your taste is. Because he by locate, and this is verbatim from the article. This meant he could work the field in a ten mass semel Tena Asli Miraculously doubling his boredom. Like Oh, my God, it's so terrible. So why unattractive people well I guess self torture for one and your little self image also during a pilgrimage he was stricken with the disease that caused gross deformities. The townsfolk were nice enough to offer him small cell attached to the church where he wouldn't frighten babies anymore. So. He's like Quasimodo. Exactly and this here says that. He's also the patron saint of coffeehouses, presumably, because that's where ugly people hang out and finishing their novels, hips stirs say. Oh God so possible prayers and So, do you make unattractive people hot or have them learn to accept themselves for the way they are because I'd much rather be the hot thing. Man. And then the last one is Saint, Cyprian of Antioch. Who is the patron saint of a cultists oh? Oh. Let's say yeah, right at the save the best for last so like this great. God I'm going to say this for like a real episode like all great stories of redemption. Cipriani starts with an attempted rape using demon minions CIPRIAN. Yes, CIPRIANI CIPRIANI, P. R. A. N.. Funny. I just because I news somebody who has named Cipriano Oh really. Oh, so it's got. It's got to be based on the same name well as a pagan saucer, who dealt a devil? CIPRIAN wasn't great with the ladies. Then when he fell in love with a Christian woman named Justina. He thought it best to use a black arts of course JUSTYNA. WHO WARDED OFF? Dozens of health spun sexual assault in her time. Sign of the Cross and repelled the evil spirits CIPRIAN was freed from his own dark spells, became a priest and bishop. While his non sexual friendship with Justina grew then, both were ordered to be tortured and beheaded. by some Emperor Doc Lee Diocletian and this is somebody who actually executed other saints, so he was actually a saint making machine, so why the occultist well other than the fact that he was basically Lord Voldemort. Cipriani wrote a book. Powerful spells inch so those pretty crazy. I, bet you. That's one of the saints that Catholics do not claim. Yeah, that's one well. He actually became a Catholic bishops. Maybe it's like you can get away from the devil and Find God, and then you cover up. The more unsightly parts of the history like a lot of people do. That's still sounded a little fishy. Fishy, so here are possible prayers as Wiccan High Priestess I invoke the name of Saint Ciprian to guide my level three charm spell Zach, ephron O or Ciprian keep my magic dark, my power strong, and don't allow the jocks to throw pissed balloons at me while I cry in the cemetery. Amen. What in the hell are these? Prayers is a hint. Okay So that sense CIPRIAN, so those are three bizarre saints very bizarre out very connected you will. Definitely it doesn't make sense now, but it'll make sense when you hear our full episodes. Some people get it I. Think People get, but we'll see. Let us know your guesses, and this was so far. This is a great many, so yeah. Okay so education bark. Yeah our lives. It's going to be really educational, too. That's very true. That's very true. Everyone tune in and.
The Self-Reliant Entrepreneur Reading: October 2
"Welcome to another episode of the duct tape marketing podcast. This is Jon Jansen and it is time for another episode of the Self Reliant Entrepreneur once we come to you with a reading from my new book the Self Reliant Entrepreneur. Today's reading is as for October second. That's when this was recorded. Each day starts with a reading from some mid nineteenth century literature I think some of the best entrepreneurial writing writing that was out there ever still incredibly relevant today and then I refund it for one hundred words or so and then leave you with a challenge question question so that's what we're GONNA do today. Let's get started October second done growing Lord. When shall we be done growing as long as we have anything more to do. We've done nothing Lord. When shall we be unchanging it's along stage and no insight and night coming and the body cold Herman Melville letter to Nathaniel Hawthorne published in memories of Hawthorn by Rose Hawthorne Leith Trip Eighteen Ninety seven. Here's another question to ponder. When should we start growing? Melville admitted in an earlier letter to Hawthorne that until Log was twenty five. I had not grown at all for my twenty fifth year. I date my life. Growth requires change change is hard and so it's heart stopped growing and life stagnates but as Melville seems to express it's exhausting at times mainly because growth doesn't happen by hoping or even setting audacious goals it happens when you admit where you are now and accept all the chapters in your past without regret from this this lucid place you can chart your growth. Wouldn't it be awesome if we kind of cake and celebrated each step in personal growth. You know instead of simply acknowledging. We lived upped another year at MIT. We don't know at all cake realize we don't have to react cake decide to leave a toxic uptake uptake hug more forgive sooner cake learn how to listen to support team members cake admit without blame that at our parents shortcomings don't define US cake. Ab those are are real birthdays challenge question Christian. Do you tend to focus on the positive or negative trait of others why this episode of the duct tape marketing podcast guest is brought to you by S. E. M. Rush is our Goto. Seo Tool for doing audits for tracking position and ranking for really getting ideas on how to get more organic traffic for our clients competitive intelligence back links and things like that all the important. Seo Tools that you the need for pay traffic social media PR AND OF COURSE SEO check it out at sem rush dot com forward slash slash partner forward slash duct tape marketing and we'll have that in the show notes okay. Latin packed today one of the things that became clear to me as I was doing a lot of the research for this how much the writers and Authors and I guess it's no surprise it's it's true today for me but how much the writers and authors of that that time knew each other and spent time with each other so you know Herman Melville Moby Dick an annual hostile and the scarlet letter hung out together and so a lot of the the writings meetings at that I came across were letters back and forth to each other so pretty interesting to kind of get that take a kind of removed from the pros that they wrote the books. I used the cake thing hopefully that made sense but I really do think that wouldn't it be amazing instead of just getting a birthday take on her birthday because we achieved another year that there was some sort of acknowledgment of our growth during that year and maybe you get six or seven seven cakes out of the year because you had a particularly strong growth here. I think that's what I'm suggesting and I think that that's maybe what we should be focused. Grist Moron is paying attention to the fact that we're never going to be done growing. We're never going to be changing and in fact change and growth while scary to some should be exciting because without it. What's the opposite. Is this John Janus with a another chapter of the self-rule Line Entrepreneur Yeah.

What's in your Wallet Credit? APPROVAL REQUIRED CAPITAL ONE BANK USA IN A. Welcome to before breakfast a production of IHEART radio. Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to rediscover some old fashioned forms of fun. Many of these were deliberately about filling time or some might say killing time. Modern sorts often feel we don't have time for such things, but over the past few weeks. Well, we've learned otherwise. The circumstances aren't ideal. But, the good news is that on the other side of the world's locked down to slow. The spread of the coronavirus will have expanded our repertoire of fun. If you had much literature written before the advent of Radio and television. You've probably noticed something. Authors such as Charles Dickens, Jane Austen or Herman Melville route stories in a slightly less economical fashion, then modern authors, the plots take longer. The sentences are more involved, but honestly why not? They weren't competing with cable. People didn't have other things to do to fill the hours after dinner and before bed. So links was an a downside in the way that modern publishers sometimes considered to be. Links was often an upside. Anyone listening to this podcast presumably still has access to the Internet but with school and activities canceled. Many people have more to fill than in the past. Screens fill some of it, but even the best shows get boring after a while, so it's time to recall how people used to kill time and realized that in many cases killing time isn't a bad thing at all. One of my favorite, our filling activities is big puzzles. Or a two hundred piece puzzle might fit in a busy day long days. Call for big ones, a thousand pieces fifteen hundred pieces. Why not? Gather the family around a big table and chat as you each work on your sections. I'm also a fan of giant Lego sets over the past few months. My ten year old and I have been working on a replica of the Empire State Building. We Flex Star Lego building muscles on a Christmas gingerbread house set, and now we're feeling more capable of bigger things. Set said take more time. Because taking time is kind of the point. Baking can fill lots of time. My husband's been baking bread. I collect magazines from the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties, and some of the recipes, and all the issues of good housekeeping literally require all day. But if everyone's around the house all day, this might be less of a downside than it seems at first glance. Of course you can really get into the little house on the prairie lifestyle and take up sewing or other needle crafts. Every time I read. The Laura Ingalls Wilder books a picture, the family sitting in front of the fire, with PA reading or playing the fiddle and Moss ditching something. So enclosed for a family of six. Certainly takes a lot of time. We don't have to make our closed from scratch these days, but cross-stitching an elaborate pattern can fill many a happy hour, especially now that no one is supposed to be going out of the House for Happy Hours. They're really all kinds of old fashioned time killing options, crosswords card games long board games like monopoly or risk scrapbooking quilting. When we're running around from place to place, it's easy to assume we have no time and so we fill the time we do have with the easiest thing available. Hence the two hours daily that even people with full time jobs and kids clock watching TV. If you're trying to work from home while homeschooling your kids or chasing toddlers all day, you may not have energy for anything else I get it. But if you're not in that situation, these long hours present an opportunity to try something else, and maybe just maybe when life gets back to normal, will remember that a great many other projects are possible.

"Merriam Webster's word of the day four February eighteenth. Today's word is bootlicker spelled B. O. L. E. S. S. Bootlaces an adjective. That means useless or unprofitable. Here's the word used in a sentence from Benito Cereno by Herman Melville at the first glimpse of his approach. Don Benito had started a resentful shadow swept over his face and as with the sudden memory of bootlace rage. His White Lips glued together. This sense of the word bootleg has nothing to do with footwear. The boot in this case is an obsolete now that meant use or avail that boot descended from the old English word boat and is ultimately related to our word better who's remote Germanic ancestor meant literally of more use. Of course. English does also see occasional use of the word bootlace to mean simply lacking boots as an Bronte. Used the word in Agnes Gray with this sentence.

Welcome to the projection booth. I'm your host Mike. White joining me is Ms Sam Deegan. Also back in the booth is Mr Ken Stanley. Hello we kick off French month with a look at Jean Pierre. Melville's lay delos the second of his several and seminal gangster. Films Lay do since the story of two men. Sylviane played by John. Paul Belmondo and Fogle played by Shershov Reggiani. They are denizens of the underworld. Where loyalty and honor our everything when a burglary fogle has plan goes awry. He thinks that it's silly. And who set him up is silly. And the titular delos an informer. We'll be discussing that and a lot more things to spoil the film as we go along so if you haven't seen they do those turn off the podcast and comeback. After you have so sam. When was the first time you saw the film? And what did you think I WANNA say? I saw it probably about like twelve over fifteen or so years ago because I happen to Rent La- Samurai and it was the sounds really cheesy and probably kind of pretentious. It was like a religious experience like when I first saw Melville might head exploded in. I decided okay I now I have to find all of the other films to not too long. After La- Samurai I managed to find loose as well and it just Amina. I've seen all of his films many times at this point and they're I think they're all pretty perfect or close to perfect. But especially this one you can. I picked it up during criterion collection. Sale thinking that who knows. Maybe someday I'll get to watch this in preparation for projection booths. Show for whatever reason this is one that fell through the cracks and I only recently watched it and watched it again and watched it again one of the things that makes me kind of bad about how I instantly just tried to see them all because I kind of wish I had left a few to watch because that first time I feel like it's he just does so many amazing things not only with script and character but with the cinematography. Yeah it just. I'm always jealous when people say oh you know. I saw this Melville movie for the first time. There are several that I have left around that I have yet to see and it's mostly because of that reason because I still want there to be Melville films for me to watch for the first time because I love his stuff. Believe it or not. I Have Quentin Tarantino to. Thank for this one. He wouldn't name check Melville all the time and so I had had and the Flam bare and a few other films on a watchlist and this is going back to working at blockbuster video and finally figuring out I think it was probably nineteen ninety. Four Ninety five where? I figured out how I could look up in the blockbuster computer and then find what store they rat so I finally found they do though and had to drive well from wine dot all the way up to sell field which was not an easy drive back then when know just in my early twenties it was quite brave new world for me and when into video store founded at that particular blockbuster because they said they had it in stock when home and watched it and I was blown away. I love this movie and I have to say watching it again. Watching it on BLU ray and his such a different film than what I saw which was a shit ass. Vhs version of it. But I'd seen it in the interim I actually I can't remember who put it out. Probably Janice films or somebody put it out in the meantime theatrically so went and sought at the DFT. Each time. I see this movie. I catch new things and I catch new layers. It's I can't say it's a simple story because of the way that Melville tells the story and I love the way that he withholds information from us and I can really see why this was such an inspiration for reservoir dogs because of the way that we think that things are going one way and then there's a reveal towards the end that makes us reconsider the entire rest of the film so if you watch it a second or third or fourth time with the knowledge that you get the first time in makes the movie such a different experience just to point. I just want to make sure that you still know realize that wind at the Southfield is still a difficult ride. It okay good. I'm glad I thought maybe I was being kind of a WIMP. There but Dono especially if you get there around rush hour and the mess. Good Lord don't I would never do that. This is right in the middle of jean-pierre Melville's Just unfortunately small body of work. He directed thirteen feature films. There are six features after the six features before this is right dead in the middle his second time that he's using the gangster mill. You I mean I guess you could consider it the third time if you count to men in Manhattan as well but he creates this world that is not Manhattan. It's not Paris. It's this kind of world between and the way that he will use English names for things and call clubs by English names rather than French names. I just love that. He has such an artificial world for these people to interact it. That's something that in a way reminds me a little bit of somebody like fast bender where you have all of these reference to places in the real world or places in history but the world that year sort of diving into is supposed to be. I WANNA call it a fantasy world because it's not you know I don't want people to think is that sort of genre but vocal schloendorff. Who worked on this film? When he was very young said that it was an artificial universe. And I feel like that's the best way to think of all of Melville's films is the world's are so carefully constructed but because he often deals with crime thriller film to are in a weird way. They feel familiar. So I think to your point about how the more times you watch some of these films the more you get out of them you start to notice these little details and one of the most important things about this film is in nineteen sixty three when it was made these hats that they all wear were not in and so somebody watching it at the time would have noticed that kind of detail. Also I don't think we've said this yet do loss. It means a hat a means sort of type of hat that they're wearing but it's also a slang term for a police informer for a lot of Melville's films for probably about half of them. There is kind of obvious English language translation. That's usually used for the film but for the other half there's not and this is definitely in that category so we're not trying to be difficult it. Just there's no good English language title. We talked about once upon a time in the West before and the way that Leonie would take American westerns and translate them through Europe and give them back to us and this is very much that taking of American gangster films translating them through this French mind or European mine and giving them back to the world and it has this interesting taste you know. It's like taking a hamburger and preparing it and French and being able to. I guess that's the royale with cheese. But you get this whole different flavor to it. You know you're not gonNA get flog raw on a hamburger but you might if John Melville served it to you your point about him kind of using these costumes to mythology. Is this idea of the gangster that something that is just part of our cultural exchange now like everyone recognizes. That Melville was really one of the first people to do that. Because when film noir came out I mean now you know people can rattle off all these classics and take it pretty seriously as a movement but at the time a lot of people thought of them as as beef films but Melville taking those American characters from the forties and putting them into these French films in the sixties was really the turning point for Hal. They became mythology sized in a more international way. And I know Mike that you mentioned. He made a couple of other gangster films before this but I think this is the real turning point in his filmography because Bob'll flam burger which is his first movie with a gangster has a totally different tone and doesn't have any of this sort of artificial combination of American culture in French culture and to Manhattan people talk should on which makes me very sad but I think with that. I love that film but I think he's still wasn't quite there yet and I think the delos is where he really kind of arrives as a director of crime thrillers. There's something that these days you would call it. Oh It's an Easter Egg. And there'd be a video word says twenty-seven things that you missed and lay. Do those and one of those things would be the shot at the beginning having Myanmar in the background and showing the distance between Myanmar. And where this film takes place and that is very much in my opinion. Melville saying remembered Lemberg. You remember how Moammar was throughout that entire film will here. We are now in this whole different world. We are miles away from that time has passed. These are different. Characters are not going to get the Suave Bob in this your now dealing with this whole other world that is near the railroad tracks at has run down at almost looks post apocalyptic. You have this one house that is seen in this area and I love that we start in this house and even before that we start with these opening credits which again I think is Melville playing with everything in this film. It's not just you know looking at the you know the characters the story the lights that he's even playing when it comes to the credits and that you've got Serge Reggiani walking. But the first name that you see is junk Paul Belmondo and it comes up in such a way that if you're not paying attention you think that that might be Mondo walking down the street and that it is walking near the side of the road in this again is really determined pace. I love the way the camera follows him. I love the way the camera. Tips up and shows the underside of the bridge. That goes back down. You've got this great jazz score going on. There are so many times in this movie where you are going to get confused as to whether this is Reggiani or Belmondo and that plays such a crucial part at the end of the film. I'm glad I said spoilers. But that there is the confusion between the two characters which is something that he's playing with from the very first frame. I think it's a great setup I love how The tracking shot uninterrupted tracking shot except for moments where you see just pitch black and all along. He's walking along this rail. That's got these bars on them. Then you look up. There is a grading in the overhead and the overpass so kind of like he's emerging from prison which we find out he did and Gilbert has taken him in but he had been in prison so in a way it's a tracking shot and of course Melville being could have been a nod to touch of evil. Starting a film that way There are references. I caught references to that film and a psycho and other little things here and there. So it's a combination of all these different elements that grew me in immediately. It's such a brilliant opening. You really have to watch it twice to kind of get this going into it. But his main theme at least in the way that the plot connects to the visual world seems to be all about. How appearances are deceiving. An I just love the fact that he uses the hat in a literal way and in a symbolic way. Because as you pointed out you know it covers regime Johnny's face at different points in the film and you can't exactly who he is. It's also about in a symbolic way. Because we come to figure out that somebody's the informant and he leaves us really guessing for a lot of film that could be but just that opening if you watch this back to back with it's so dramatically and I think you're right intentionally different. I love that scene with the house in the middle of nowhere at a definitely agree with some of those psycho references their times in the opening where it feels a little bit like a horror movie or at least kind of expressionistic. I thought the House in particular the very first shot where you see the house. I thought it looked pretty gothic. You expect a horror movie to take place in this place and especially that there's nothing on the walls and it's so rundown there's just that one African mask that calls a lot of attention to itself at because there's nothing else in there and it's just the him What's the guy's name Verno today? I think it is sitting upstairs. They're over that table with all the jewels. Just looking at almost like he's a witch or wizard of treasure or something or dragon. I suppose and that amazing ceiling coming down just playing all those angles off of fog face. Yeah I love that and I also love how fogle will play with his own hat and push it up. Push it down just again calling more attention to the actual titular delos objects are so important to Melville's films. I mean it's something that shows up here. You know you pointed out the ask. He's obsessed with using mirrors especially to reflect or sort of fracture. The way someone's face appears we see later in the film. He has all of these kind of art. Objects and of course gems and gold are sort of central to the plot but the way he uses objects particularly in connection with what he's trying to say about crimes or criminality or especially what he's trying to say about men and masculinity. It's like watch this movie ten times in a week and still find something. I missed it so meticulous. It like it almost reminds me a little bit of help. Polanski turns everything in the frame into kind of a science. Like you get the sense that he's actually taken out a ruler and measured how far away objects should be from each other. And there's a little bit of that here. I think he would he would do that. I remember hearing just learned off. Say that if someone was sixty three centimeters away from the camera. If you'RE GONNA DO THE REVERSE SHOT. They have to be sixty three centimeter away from the camera. That's also why it gives you that sense that the world is so designed an artificial end. It makes it really feel kind of like hostile in cold which shows up in a lot of his films like even something like liaison found. Terry blow which is a drama and is not a crime thriller. It still. Has that really kind of strange staged feeling where you can never be. Sure what world you're you've been placed in new mentioned the mirror and I love that stocktaking when a person looks at themselves in the mirror. It's like where my now in my life kind of thing and we have that wonderful book end of Reggiani looking at himself in the mirror at the beginning and then Belmondo looking at himself in the mirror at the end and to see that Reggiani is fractured. And that Belmondo is full. And that he's in the center of the Sun so wonderful. There's Reggiani in this shit hole house that that he's going to murder someone in and here's Belmondo at the end. Almost at the end of his life looking at himself in the mirror and taking stock. We've talked about how perfect and well thought out. The opening scene is the conclusion is the ideal mirror of that. I mean they both have such incredible symbolism in cinematography and if you just showed someone the opening and the closing and cut out the entire film there's just so much unexpected symmetry there. It's I really. I know that I'm just going to Gush. The entire episode badges Love Melville so much gushing has definitely allowed on this episode. Another cycle references the overhead shot when he's climbing up the stairs. Is kind of like the Arbogast shot in Psycho I hadn't thought about the biggest thing I mostly was thinking of the the swinging light after he kills the guy and the light gets hit and starts moving around but even before that one thing that always bothers me in movies is when they're in a location and then they go to another location and suddenly we've gone from day to night or night today and it's just like how much time has passed. I love that you can actually see how the sun is going down outside. And when the street light comes on and the street light comes on and hits Reggiani on the face and splits him right down the middle light on the left side of his face darkness on the right side of the face which is perfect for the scene because he is being so duplicitous that he is talking to this guy and he even goes over. He's like hey. I need a gun for this job. Let me borrow your gun. Goes over and gets the gun and then manages to kill the Guy. You mentioned shadow over half of this face of this. It'd be strange to see what kind of sun and sky got the lighting in that scene. It's a textbook and there's a moment. Where after Marines asks for the gun and you'll bear says it's back there if you need extra light to see it. There's a lamp on the corner. Now I don't know if you guys noticed this but it seemed like that lap you turns on the lab and the illumination around. The lamp is like a foot and circumference. Maria walk through darkness on his way to the drawers to get the gun now. That lamp really did not help at all. Except that it helps set up shot that we will see later when Marie stands up after shooting. Gio Bear because that lamp makes possible. A very nice little shadow on the wall behind him. He didn't want that lamp on earlier in the season because it would have messed up the earlier shots. So that's an example of like. I want to do this so bad how do I do this? How do I get that struck me as being really odd because if you go back and look at that you'll see the same thing I saw have? You didn't see it already. That lab serves no purpose being turned on. It doesn't help at all the drawers feet away and the lamps back there and it glows a little bit. It's kind of like maybe a trick that he wanted you to get so he can appreciate the lighting in that scene because it's a really great work of shadows light and darkness. It's a room. It's an addict. So the the the roof is angled rounded in certain places there are moments where it looked like Dr Gary because of the shadows being thrown onto wall at a curved wall and as just wonderful I love that scene there are certain moments in. That's one of them where he knows. How clever it is and wants you to know too. But when other directors especially later directors do things like that. I tend to find it annoying but with him I never do. It's it's sort of like yes. That is a hell of a shot. Let's let's linger on it for a moment so we can all really soak it in. Sam You said something earlier about getting more on a second or third or subsequent viewing. I certainly felt this way about Roseana is performance in this particular scene. The movies just started. He's walked down the underneath the overpass. He's entered the house and he's gone up the stairs and there's definitely something wrong with him. If you see it the second time you realize that it was his intention to go there and kill Joe Bear. It makes the performance make a little more sense because the first time I saw this I thought I don't know exactly what's up. Because he seems to be like disconcerted about something he's talking with Joe Bear but at the same time. He has something else on his mind. You get that kind of feeling from just a few just a few moments of his acting in that first sequencer. He's incredible and I could not agree more. I think what we were talking about earlier about. How Melville tries to trick you. Sometimes that appearances are deceiving. This sort of greatest example of that is regime and his performance. Because the first time I watched this I remember thinking especially once jump up. Mondo shows up. I remember thinking that I felt like Reggiani Milk toast fossil is. He's pretty forgettable. Sometimes he seems week then when you watch the film all the way through new to the ending you realize okay. All of this was intentional. It wasn't just like okay. We cast some bland actor because Reggiani. He's a great actor in this film. He was cast in during a kind of low point in his career and it really sort of helped revitalize him he has the weirdest career and life story of full of all kinds of crazy ups and downs. But unlike Belmondo who is so charismatic Reggiani is much better suited for this kind of role because his performance is so stealthy you have to watch it. At least maybe one or two. It's like you watch it the first time to get the plot. He wanted the second time. So that you can just pay attention to the cinematography third time to appreciate surgeries. Yanni and you know so on and so forth. It really is his film. There are so many times where Belmondo is MIA for the longest time towards the end of the movie. It feels almost like they trade off and it becomes Belmondo's movie but for the beginning of this this is all Reggiani. Belmondo doesn't even come into the film. Until what fifteen or so minutes. In again I guess it's kind of like that psycho thing where it's like okay now finally. Anthony Perkins shows up. It's Anthony Perkins Movie. But yeah it takes so long and the way that is talking about the other characters and just setting up this whole world in this opening scene. I mean he he mentions remmy silly on NETAPP's Yo Theresa and that he's they're just getting out of jail he's been in jail for all this time and then later on we find out that he is actually getting revenge for. Was it his wife or girlfriend? Who was mixed up with this guy is just. There's so many things it's like. We begin the movie while it's already in action and I love that. We have this rich back story that it takes a lot of turn a person stuff out. It's not just like Oh here you go. Here's a good guy. Here's a bad guy. Go to it. We hear the names remmy Cillian newly which turns out as either neighbourhood or area. Where the houses that they're going to burglarize but we don't know at that point. Tereza that she l. and Armand before we know these guys name but the thing is the atmosphere so rich. You're getting like both mystery and suspense at the same time. What's going to happen? And it's a very intriguing and compelling a mood that the film starts out with a bang. I definitely remember thinking the first time I watched it. We hear all these names. Who the hell are these people and I definitely remember thinking okay. Is he referring to himself referring to this guy in the room like what is going on key intentionally he being Melville starts off trying to disorient you in as many ways as possible than it works? And we go from this very cool calculated cat and mouse game. That Reggiani is doing with this guy getting the gun shooting him and then Natasha Chico. And I can't remember if it's Ramiro Armand and then beyond show up so it just adds this whole other thing too now. All of a sudden it's a. I have to get the fuck out of this house and I need to get out without them seeing me because suddenly we switch the pace from very laconic to Bam. Okay now of a sudden it's a chasing has to get the fuck outta there has to grab the jewels grabbed the money. Grab all this stuff get out and I also love when these guys are coming out of the car that that light is still swinging up above in the window and that that's what really brings their attention. I just love those I mean. It's it's a very detailed but it's just one of those things where it's like. Oh that's so nice that that still is happening. And that is tying the outside world to the inside world. Probably wouldn't have been able to really swing that long. Probably not but great cinematic thing. Nice lovely. Maria takes loot that he took with him from the apartment and he finds a Lamppost and decides to bury the loop there. And that's an to me. It's not a literal reference to psycho but it resonates in a couple of ways with psycho reminds me of Norman Bates cleaning up after the shower murder in that like when the car goes into the swamp. And he's doing his we. The audience start identify with Norman Bates. When you hear this guy. Is someone running on on the street? I think that we kinda like start identifying with Maurice. Oh my God look out. Someone saw you. He has the same kind of effect for me. In how yeah. I would agree with that. And I think that's one of the things like psycho that can be a little bit confusing about this film. The first time you watch it is. I think so often with narrative films and even with like documentaries. We're so used to waiting for the filmmaker to tell us who's story it is and who were supposed to follow on. Who were supposed to identify with and here? He really keeps it from you for as long as he can. And it's like in different scenes. You're supposed to identify with different people but were never relationship. Who's trustworthy it? Which in a way also kind of reminds me of that. Gothic trope of the unreliable narrator. It's you never really know who's telling the truth. Something might seem to be one way the first time you watch a movie but then once you watched this movie but then once you go back and Rewatch it like we've been talking about with Reggiani. You realize what his motivations are and how you incorrectly thought that he was doing certain things for a certain reason in here you find out. It's not it's different reason. I still wonder who is running down the street while watching the movie. It's a red herring and and you're saying at that point. Is this that Cillian or they are talking about or Gio. Who who saw this guy is it's going to be a major plot point and it just dissipates. But for the time being it helps to create a lot of suspense. Even when he's getting out of the house and Fab Yang is still in the car. I can thinking oh fabulous. Probably saw him and she's going to be the key and she's going to say oh. He was the one that was in the house. He's the one that murdered that guy but no that never comes up. So yeah it is. It's very masterfully. Done the way that he just keeps throwing us these curve balls. Can we talk about for a second poor lady? Who's barely in this movie? I feel so bad for her. And for Theresa. We're going to have to at some point discuss. Melville's treatment of women in general. Let's a right now So Fabien is played by actress in February Dolly. Who I I love. Who was not in nearly enough movies? She's a Belgian actress. Who is in Kill Baby? Kill Baba film which is where I knew her from and so the first time I saw this bugged me like where do I know this woman? And she's also in the Libertine Trenton Yon she makes such a contrast to Tarez who's played by many Kennedy. A lot of people at this point have come out and said you know one of the big problems with Melville is that he's really misogynistic and I usually always have to say well. No He's not because that's just what I do. But he wasn't great at casting women especially in films where he's not trying to cast. Starlets has some really great performances from great actresses like Juliette Greco. When you read this letter Simone Senior Rain Army of Shadows Nicole Stefan. We WORKED WITH A COUPLE OF TIMES IS AMAZING. But he seems to really struggle when it comes to casting actresses in the side roles. Some of my favorite kind of onset stories about delos is that Belmondo apparently hated these women and thought that they were really unprofessional. Moldy Kennedy was pretty inexperienced but he just has such a strange way of putting women in his films but they really are like the reason. I guess it doesn't bother me because I feel like these films. Are these very weird masculine world. Where sex doesn't really enter into it very often. Women are pretty much nowhere to be found. But it's I guess also why it doesn't bother me is it's not like he's saying this is the way the world should be. It should be only men all the time. This is great. He sort of makes these films about how damaged in failing this particular type of masculinity is I do think that for example in Bob La clamber the last great Heist that Bob and his associates. We're going to pull off. It all comes undone because of women and in this film Theresa Iraq Fabio. John Turns on new techy. Oh just because she thinks it'll get in good with the Belmondo character and Anita jeans girlfriend rats out him so rat rat true but I feel like you can understand why they do that in the sense that they all seem to be pretty miserable and they're basically trot. It seems to me at least like they're trying to find. Though the least painful option to sort of survive in this world the whole relationship between men new techy. Oh is that typical kind of film. Noir plot where you have this desired female character who agrees to be in a relationship with a gangster somebody who owns a nightclub someone who has kind of money and power but she really loves the sort of deadbeat criminal. Although in this movie like how do you choose between the two of them between Cillian in new techy? Oh or between Belmondo. And that's that's really what I mean Michel Piccoli. I think could sell any role and here. It almost would make more sense to have a less charismatic actor. In the part he just is incredible. Almost steals the film. Isn't there a long in the sixties in France that he had to be in every fifth film or something there I mean. It seems that way. He's incredible though. Am I reading it right to that? There was a relationship between Belmondo and beyond before she hooked up with Natasha. You it's sort of like a guild type plot where you have this sort of female performer. Character who has this relationship with this thug but she leaves him and winds up with some more powerful guy but then the thug comes back into her life and she sort of has like. Oh well maybe this guy is better after all moment and that's just the kind of charismatic Guy Cillian is is that he also had a brief well not an intimate relationship but he saw Teresa with with the police policemen that Cillian was giving information to informing to. He saw them together. Which is another thing that it helps to see the film a second time because when we see the look that Theresa exchanges with with Belmondo and vice versa. When Theresa first comes into Maurice's apartment. It's like Whoa. These guys must know each other and then it turns out that they don't but Belmondo was giving her the look. She was responding not necessarily in reference to that previous meeting that they had but maybe she was responding. Just carnally or something yeah. That scene is really confusing first. I love that the first thing that she gets told in. This movie is make me Sandwich. It's the punchline but they just bring it right out you know before it wants to punch the first time or one of the first times I watch this. I wondered like is. Is he making fun of this type of character? 'cause that's sort of how it seems like Tarez so kind of miserable and downtrodden in this movie. I shouldn't be laughing at that. It's it's just more like to me. It seems like he's taking a pretty a character type and making a really dramatic top of it and she says an awful time in this film to I remember right was she Melville Secretary. I think she was because she didn't really have much acting experience but she also was in a couple of his movies at this time including two men in Manhattan an Leon Moran just in smaller roles it seems like the sort of thing where he wrote the script thought to himself. Okay I need an actress to cast in. This part didn't WanNa audition actresses looked across. The room was like she'll do she'll get beat up by Belmondo and get whiskey poured Oliver head no big deal. That scene is so intense. It's unexpected as well. Since we have Belmondo leaving going down and making that phone call and that we see the other person on the end of that phone call which is an inspector Sunlen Yanni and then he goes back to the apartment and you don't expect them to go back to that apartment at all and then when that violence comes it just is even more surprising. She lets him in. And maybe she's thinking they're gonNA follow up on that little exchange ahead but looking at each other. That's what I thought too. The first time I saw this I thought oh well I guess now they're going to have an affair just kidding but Belmondo's being trying to be really making an effort to be kind of charming. At first which is kind of selling that idea and then he whacks her one lecture a lot of once yet more than just one an. It's it's also jarring because it's Belmondo Like his sort of roguish kind of especially during this period of his career charm. I think goes a long way in a lot of these crime films when he's being played somewhat against type where you don't imagine him as a character who would do that sort of thing and just like the way shuts off the jazz music. It's it's I think still is so powerful is like right out of the naked kiss. It reminded me of all the slapping that goes on in that particular film. And that's great editing too. I love the cuts on the slaps when he's given those two are. I mean it's just really effective it hides the slap itself but it really makes it hurt even more. Yeah you feel like you've seen it and I love her when she's got the whiskey that's been poured overhead in that. It's just the one that you can see looking out from under her hair. And just I feel so bad for her. And the way that he will he puts the gag in takes the gag out as for the information puts the gag back in and the way that she's tied up with the belt to the radiator and it's just odd. It is really brutal a long way also in making you feel more disoriented because you don't find out until the end of the film why he beats her relay but at the time though he does get the information and right then and there you know you know for a fact that he is going to put the finger on. Maurice and his job. It's obvious it's obvious that that's what's going on so super obvious and that we've already seen him call the police inspector. We know that he's got a relationship with this guy. So of course and when the police inspector shows up at the robbery yeah of course this makes total sense. You have just you know one. Plus one equals two. Of course this is following this very logical path. We know everything. That's that's happening now and we completely are there with Maurice Knowing exactly. What's on his mind when it comes to what has happened. The only real mystery for him is. Who's the one that rescued him and takes them to a safe house to get the bullet removed when he shoots he inspector in the inspector shoots him? That's the only thing that is on. His mind is okay well who saved me. It really doesn't matter I'm going to go kill the Cillian. Because he's a horrible person he put the finger on me. That's his reputation. He knows he only news. Cillian as being a friend but JOE BARE SAID. He's a horrible person. That's what everybody in Paris says. So he's weighing those things any realizes at that point that it has to be silly in the way that Melville gives you all of those pieces of information. It's not like the usual suspects or something where it's entertaining but if you watch it more than once or twice because it relies on the central twist. It's like once that. Sorta has been delivered. It just doesn't have the same impact but here that sense of tension between the two characters and the suspense of what's going to happen to them. I don't think it lessens the more times you watch the film. Oh No not at all and you just hit upon my central problem with the usual suspects once I saw it and once the twist happened like okay I never need to watch this movie again because you can just figure it all out okay. Well this was all just made up by this guy wholesale. It doesn't necessarily play an anything so okay I'm good but then you watch a movie like this where it's like. Oh now I got more now I get more now I get more. And Oh. Isn't that interesting? How he deals us this information when it's actually that and even watching this thing again recently. I'm like okay. Well this is all good but who killed Teresa? Is this going to be like the chauffeur from the big sleep? Who Killed The chauffeur? Does it really matter who killed Theresa and I just kept thinking that throughout so much of this movie when they had the headline about how her body was found in a car? At the bottom of this quarry. And I'm like okay. Well that's good and all but it doesn't seem to be explainable. Who would have killed her so and then when they give it to us where it's like. Oh Okay and it makes even more sense the next time I watch it. I do WanNa talk a little bit about that robbery. I love the robbery scene. And we've had so many great robbery scenes at this point in cinema. I mean is coming years after Rafiki. This is a much more low key robbery but I love the things that go right with it. I love the things that go wrong with it. I especially love how Maurice's using his fingers as a gun and the guys back and this whole idea of him marching this guy in and the dog. The dog is going to screw something up. And it's just it's a very tense scene for not even being a successful robbery. If you look at movies that follow Rafiki. How much more seriously or in different ways they treat this idea of a robbery or a high sequence and I think in a lot of the earlier films. It's just. There's a sense of suspense around the characters going to get this right. Melville was more interested in the suspense and the kind of meticulous nature of the scene itself. Then he wasn't the outcome because he he shows a similar type of seen in almost every movie in the second half of his career. After Louise Delos whether it's a heist or whether it's a scene in army of shadows where somebody is trying to steal information or escape or something along those lines. It's a very similar extended scene where the action almost stops. But it's so anxiety inducing you start sweating watching it. There's a sense that decision gonNA come off for whatever reason I felt like this isn't going to come off something bad's going to happen. The things that interested me once again is a stylistic touches things that you can see metaphorically hopping over the fence. I keep thinking of prison bars when I see gates and fences a wrought iron and stuff but the scene itself is like a kind of bills and then what I really remember the most about that is when they run out of the room where the caretaker is has been placed on the bed and somebody bumps into the table and this boss almost falls off the table in. Doesn't it's a very particular noise too. I really like the Foley on that. That is a perfect example of the atmosphere of this film. Is it's so brilliant. Because it's like who gives a shit if the vase falls over but you he makes you care about things. Because they're the sort of instinctive mundane things that we would care about like Ono. Don't let the boss fall. But I think that that's what's so great about a lot of his films. Is these small moments with action movies in Crime Thrillers. And things like that. They focus so much on the big moments in these big huge sequences but a movie has so much more weight. If it's something like this where he makes you care about every single frame and it's not like that all hey. It was just a chance thing that it just happened that we happen to have this one taken a did that. It placed that right where it was. Because you don't put a table with vaas inner in that place. I wouldn't think so you'd move it to the side one of the against the wall on either side of the entrance there but it was right there. Someone's GonNa bump into that table now. Visa's GonNa fall one of these days. I think it's very telling that you're talking about these powerhouse. Moments of the film and one of the best moments of this movie for me is not a robbery. It's not an action scene. It's this eight minutes in some second. Take of an interrogation L. Belmondo because now selling the is showed up and that was Belmondo's for who is an inspector but we don't necessarily know about that friendship fully and they pick him up and take him back to the police station and it goes on for like I said I think Melville used to say nine minutes and twenty six seconds but if you time it. It's a little bit less than that. I don't know a conversion from French or something but it is just so great to look at and the way that he sets up these frames and we we've talked about before and this is right up there with something that would have done and I love. It's the the Belmondo for most of it. He is against this wall. And you've got them one main inspector and his two guys and the way that they will move throughout this room especially the way that the cameras follow the following the inspector from left and right and Bill Maher is always there in the center and it is like he is this unflappable person that he's like The the the the ROC in the wind that will never move. And here's everything moving around him and we're going to close up we've got these groups shots would go over here. We go over here and just this just all beautifully framed and so well choreographed. It's also wonderful to that. You have that and then a few scenes later you have almost the same kind of thing with Maurice but guess what that's three minutes and there's three cuts in it and with that each time one character moves. Another character comes in from the left from the right. It's like he is trapped in there as opposed to Belmondo who is just unflappable. The first time I saw the film and the scene popped up. I really wasn't even aware that there weren't any cuts in it and for me. It kind of took the movie from one place and which was which I was loving all this black and white these dark shadows in these. This know all the action that had been happening up to that point and for me. The first time I saw this scene here it just stopped the bullied in its tracks for me but I the second time I saw it after realizing that this was a famous eight-minute shot than I really admired it from a technical point of view. But frankly these cops were a lot less interesting then and we haven't seen too many cops up to that point then all these shady characters so I still had that kind of like. I wish they'd go back to like firing guns and running around. And you know robbing stuff I really do see the technical brilliance on the second time through and it made me think of the interrogation in Sanchez apartment in touch of evil again. I had that to hang onto it because that's an extended one take of five six minutes long or something like that. There's two of them in that film all. Yeah it is really something and the blocking the had to have been done in. That is amazing. It's like a ballet almost but I also am super biased because I would watch a shot an extended nine and a half minute shot of Pogo Mondo watching paint dry so I could easily deal with these sort of scenes where he just. It seems like the action stops. The way that he is always at the center was another of those things where the first time I saw the film. I felt confused. Like okay are we. He's obviously this sort of like like you said Mike. This unflappable force and at that moment he seems to be the kind of stable sort of waited center of the film. And it just confused me so much like am I supposed to be identifying with with liens character like what's going on here and like I said I love that. We have this contrast between his interrogation and Marie Secetary Gatien and that Maurice's setting and that the cops are all above him and you even get this one low angle shot you talk Can About Orson Welles and that you can actually see the ceiling in this area. It is so nice and the walls look like they're I don't know fifteen feet. High was just this kind of oppressive. Wait on him as he is being questioned by the cops and you know it's this kind of rhyming thing that we have through here so we've got the Mondo being questioned. Now we have Reggiani being question Reggiani when he's at the bar he's looking at this newspaper. A lot of information is being given to us through newspaper headlines and he's reading about Teresa's death there and I love when the cops come and pull them out that he has them pay the barkeep and there's another moment right towards the end with this other Guy John who he's drinking at the bar just about to have his drink I think and the cops come in and pick him up and he has to give money to the bartender and I love that. Maurice's like it's not her fault that I'm getting picked up so why stiff the bar is the little moments lamb like. I said earlier that anyone else who's trying to tell this sort of godfather type story. I don't think would fixate on those little details but yet Melville does Mike. You mentioned a shot looking down emory's and that happened earlier in the film as well when we see Maurice lying on his bed once. He can't remember the context but we see an overhead shot at that moment. I always associate that. You Know God's I view of someone who's in a pathetic situation. I'm trying to remember if it was in that second interrogation later that they take off his hat and is such a big deal. I mean had such A. It's the title of the movie. Has such a big deal that when they are taken off of heads or have to be removed the gets so much attention pulled to it so like later on Belmondo goes to a bar and it takes off his hat and gives it to the hat check lady and we follow the hat as it goes over to the shelf and get that number thirteen that nice unlucky. Thirteen hat check. Something is really significant. If he moves his camera there are long. Takes the opening credit sequence along? Take this the long takes in the police department but You know he doesn't really move his camera. The action is like conveyed through cutting along that line. Something I think we should talk about for a little bit. That we haven't really yet is Melville is really the closest thing you could come at the time to something like an independent filmmaker because he really broke with the studio system. I mean I tried to find a way in but never really could get in the same way that a lot of the other sort of big name. French filmmakers from the fifties were. He just said fuck it. I'm doing it myself and manage to get things financed or would come up with the money on his own and opened his own production company so he had this incredible amount of control. That I think is something. We've been talking about in different ways while we've discussed lows but it's not even just that he had control in terms of what was going shot but he had the freedom to kind of do things that younger directors would never really have been allowed to do and so. I think that's why you get a lot of this very kind of unusual sense of style that I am just obsessed with. He's the closest that we really have to an independent filmmaker in something like French cinema at the time and decided to pull up his big boy pants and opened his own studio which was unheard of that along with the fact that he did a lot of location shooting and use some amateurs and he wrote scripts if he had an original story he would adapt scripts. This is what made him in the eyes of the new wave. Critics a true tour at that time and So he's an inspiration to a lot of people because of these things. He is like the daddy of the French new wave and they all looked at him as such. I love that he shoots silence of the C. Lonsdale Lamar without the author's permission without permission from the French. I don't Know Film Council or whoever you have to get permission from and that he's just like fuck it. That's one of my favorite stories because he just to such an upstart and basically goes to the guy wrote the book and says look. I was in the resistance to. I made this film about your book. You and this panel of I think. Twelve other kind of resistance. Elders can watch my film. If you hate it I will throw it in the trash. Set It on fire. You'll never hear it again. If you like it. Maybe you could give me your blessing and I could release it. It's like who does that and I love that. He's so into his studio when he finally gets a studio going that he lives above the studio that he basically just comes downstairs and search shooting film in the morning. That's it or in the mid afternoon. I think he was a late sleeper. He has all these crazy quotes from interviews and things like that where he talks about. How kind of solitude is the ideal state and he. He wasn't INSOMNIAC. In would be up all night but like he never stopped working. All he did was work so getting back into though I did want to talk a little bit about the uncovering of the treasure where I mean. It's it's like kids very treasure and having this a treasure map like you. There's a little treasure map and we know that it's Belmondo but he keeps him in shadows so often that there are times where it's like. Is it really Belmondo or not? And I don't think it's any coincidence. That Belmondo's got a very distinct profile. Reggiani has a distinct profile but they're very similar and a lot of waste. Like you would never mistake these guys in a lineup but when their hats are pulled down low and have this high overhead light coming down and throwing shadows on them. There were moments. Where I'm like. Am I actually seeing what I'm seeing? It's a nice way to to kind of fake us out and then also continue like you're saying before can just throwing more and more onto the guilty pile as far as the Belmont character just being just they such an awful person. How dare he do all of these things now? He's robbing from his friend from Maurice. Now he's continued just that knife in his back after he gave them up to the police earlier and told them exactly where he was going to be placed in that robbery. And knowing that Maurice gave the envelope with the map in it to Anita who gave who who was told. Don't give it to anybody gene. So you're thinking it looks like Bel no but John's supposed to have it so I wasn't quite one hundred percent sure it would have required information once again that was withheld from us to confirm that it was. Belmondo and we know for sure that it's not supposed to be Reggiani because last time we see him. He's being marched upstairs at the police station where it looks like. He's going to the gallows the envelope was given to Anita. When Maurice was recuperating at Johns plays and he was told he told Anita. Don't give this to anyone but John and only when I tell you to. That's all I knew. When I saw this character dig up the stuff I said. It looks like Belmondo but it's not supposed to be. I think that's one of the things. That's so amazing about this. Is he manages to stretch the stuff out for so long in the film. Where even up until the end even though? You're pretty sure you'd think you know what's going on in every senior like what is happening. Why are these people doing this? Why can no one follow instructions? It wasn't so much fun you know. In terms of the mystery and the suspense in the Mood N- atmosphere. It would be infuriating. What it is kind of infuriating? If Jack Webb made this movie Oh my God. It's infuriating but in a pleasurable way. I'm not sure how to say that. The Germans have award for that. They do after this whole thing with the treasure. And now we've got Maurice Jail. We see him. And he meets his new cellmate. Kern who looks like he's as tall as Skilling is in this room. I mean this guy's huge suddenly takes this left turn and becomes other movie for awhile where it's suddenly. You mentioned gilded before I was thinking the big heat where it's like suddenly you're dealing with You know this this whole different branch of the underground and now we're back in touch. Oh territory where it is a different level. Different layer of gangsters the ones that own the club where there's probably illicit gambling going on and just all of these things and now all of a sudden Belmondo's and here we've got this ex flame coming up with beyond who saw at the very beginning but now she's back in this movie and I'm so glad that they set that stuff up earlier in the film wise this would be so out of place and even as it is. It's still kind of out of place but it works perfectly within the whole larger picture of do those but the first time you see it. It's just like. Whoa what's going on? Why am I suddenly now? In the Cotton Club in dealing with Michel Piccoli and this whole thing having these this new set of machinations as far as Belmondo wanting to get back with Bob Yan and having her help him out with this whole elaborate scheme and he pulls off. It's not necessarily a heist but it's it's a double murder that he pulls off rather than Stealing anything but he uses the jewels from earlier in order to lure these guys in an order for them to at necessarily murdering each other. Which would kind of set up a little bit later in the thing but just for them to be killed by him but then make it look like it's them each other in his diabolical. I remember from this movie are little things that really don't have much to do with the plot like the Voss like the lamp in the club. There's this woman dancing on stage and at one point she steps onto the bar which is no wider than like. I don't know two feet across and it's like she comes very close to kicking people's glasses of the bar and I'm wondering if I would really like to sit there. It just seemed a little little odd. It's not the real world in any discernible way. But I remember feeling kind of frustrated the first time I saw this because to your point a minute ago I didn't understand why we suddenly found our way back into this club. And like what did that have to do with Cillian Maurice but really anything that gets Michelle pickling more screen time? I am totally totally on board for and Natasha is one of those weird characters again. It's almost a kind of psycho like thing that we were talking about earlier. Where within this film he has way of suddenly making you care about characters that maybe don't get a lot of screen time or maybe been there. Since the beginning of the film I think new techy Oh is a perfect example of that because he becomes such a powerful character in kind of the last act. Here I think mostly because Michelle pickle is the greatest one of my favorite Melville. `ISMs about him is he said. I wanted to bring to life the kind of bastard who doesn't sponge his face in sweat when he knows he's about to die which is totally new Tatchio. Okay Sam coli or Piccoli or Belmondo. What am I Solomon Water? Choose between the two of them over each. I was just wondering if there is a preference there. I don't know I love them both so much. I might have to give the slight edge to Coley although I feel like. I'm about to be struck by some sort of mid lightning bolt from the French new wave right now. I love the little touch that she's not smoking and I don't know you pronounce. This goal was the French cigarettes. Yeah Yeah that you smoking cools that. It's that Nice Little American touch again. That far not necessarily in France who not necessarily in America. You're in this. Nether world where you can get cool. Smoke cool as clean breath of fresh air. No fresh cool. The first time I was in Paris I ran out of. I'm a smoker. And a first time. I ran out of smokes in Paris. I decided to try some gold vows and are just awful. And it's like being punched in the lungs. I like them can have a drag of someone else's but if you're used to smoking American cigarettes they're they're a lot unlike cools which are light and refreshing. You won't get cancer as quickly as you will from gallows I want to say that. This is also around the same time where the Monday was questioning her and trying to get her to testify. Is that right as far as like this whole thing about train passing other inside to head the shot and she's like well no. I didn't hear a train. It keeps pestering her and then she's like. Oh Yeah yeah definitely. There was a train. It must have covered the shot. And it's just this whole weird little moment. Where like just how easy? It is to make her change her story. I guess maybe to make us trust her less well. You have to remember that they just got done making love. They had had a previous relationship. So I think she's thinking I keep going into the actor's name Belmondo. He promised me that he'd take me away with them and stuff so I that's all that matters tour and apparently she's not happy with nuthatches and she probably just wants to please Belmondo and so she's allows herself to be coerced into Into giving up a net. That she'll to the police. I mean she has all this oxytocin flooding her brain Prime manipulation time and still is so calculating like he's such a likable character. I think because of Belmondo even though it does all these terrible things but he is pretty. Damn manipulative. Thobe on prefers Belmondo. Maybe she wants both. I think that really would be the perfect world. But that's very different. Sort of movie. They would take a few more years to come out. Well I guess actually Jules and Jim was already had happened had that yes but Melville would never make a movie about a three way relationship. Yes we have this whole thing of the death of these two gangsters which is just masterfully. Done again this whole thing. I love how Belmondo's trying to get him to touch all the jewels so that he'll get his fingerprints all over them. Meanwhile Belmondo's wearing those white gloves. I read somewhere that people call them editor gloves and I was like Oh. That's nice. Just crafting that scene. He's the director at this point. He's directing the way that this needs to go down and then these even doing this kind of wounded bird act at one point to the other gangster where it's just like. Oh Yeah shot me in the leg. And he's trying to limp around and then he pulls out his gun and shoots that guy. I just stretches plausibility for me a little bit. Only because it's so elaborate the machinations that has to be gone through in order to set up this situation to create what looks like a double homicide and You know a burglary or something along those i. It just doesn't make sense but while wonder it's just very elaborate because it involves calling Beyond in drawing him the Coley there and then getting our mind and yeah I mean it works. It makes sense but I'm thinking to myself. Oh my God in order to get this in order to get this thing to work for him any but what's amazing is just so cool about the whole thing. As if it's no problem this is going to happen. He gets a plan. Executes a perfectly yeah and that honestly is my only slight issue with the plot perhaps because of my extreme love for Michelle typically. I have a hard time believing that new show would be duped into something like this but so it goes very quickly. After this that we have the regroup of John and flow fogel and Cillian altogether and then it becomes this series of flashbacks. So we explain everything that had gone before. We finally get the death of to raise. We get what had happened with some selling Yari. We get all of these things finally coming to light and I love the extra flashbacks that are gonNA happen right towards the end of the movie. We think that we're all done with flashbacks at this point again at is Melville being this master. Where it's like okay. You wondered about these things. Here's what's going on and guess what it was actually Theresa who was behind all of this stuff she is the actual finger man as as what get an American title. She's the one who gave this information and she's the one who did this that and the other thing now she's dead and here's how she died and here's Oh look at. John got ripped coat. All of these things that are going to play into sees afterwards and now re conceptualize all of the scenes before but we still have left out these two flashbacks that come up when we have the climax of the movie that just again threw everything into a different light. I love the way that he puts this together. It's one of those kinds of twists. That doesn't feel like a cheap screenwriting cop out. There are so many unanswered questions for how we're supposed to feel about SELENA. During the course of the film that I think once you get that explanation it winds up being kind of a relief in a weird way. I was thinking that exact word. That's what you're experiencing hearing this being pieced together in such a way so that Okay I get it that it is a relief but then he ratchets it back up again. We've got this rainstorm. That starts. We've heard about this House that Belmondo's character has through the entire film. And we've never seen it and so now we're about to see this house and it becomes this race to the house. Because he leaves fogle leaves Maurice Leaves and he is desperate to catch him and again. We have this fairy psycho esque scene of Marion Crane driving out of the and hearing the voices of the people that were finding out about the robbery. Instead with this. I love that we get this. Pov SHOT FROM BEHIND THE WHEEL. This process shot of the cars and him weaving in and out of the cars. And then that wonderful flashback comes up and we learned that he has hired Kern his cellmate to murder Cillian for two million francs and now it is this race to try to save this guy who he thought for sure had sold him out and he has to get up to this house before. Cillian does or he has to actually catch Cillian because he's on the road and he wants to catch him and stop him from going to the house it is just. It's played so beautifully. I love this whole thing of him passing by this gas station. And then the shadow Belmondo in the car at the gas station. And you just know them Marissa's on his way to his doom and that again that wonderful moment where he's rushing up to the house and we get him completely in Silhouette and here. We have the thing that I talked about. I don't know an hour and a half ago the mistaking of one character for the other. And that's how he dies. It is just gorgeous into so tense. I remember being in the theater when I did see this theatrically just wanted to yell out at the screen. Because it's like no no. Don't don't go into your. Doom is in this house in a way recalls. Of course the very first time that we see Belmondo the faceless silhouette character there and I think maybe I think it's that shot. Their the beginning of the film was set up this one here. Because the whole idea is that It's important for Morita. Get killed all if he can't be identified as Maurice Because Kern and Marino each other if you knew it was Maurice. You know he wouldn't shoot them but in order to pull that off he's going to have to be you know Just a specter and not be recognizable. Yeah and that honestly I think is one of the most brilliant things about the film is the way that he yes. I definitely think he sets it up so that it can be used to. Its greatest effect here. But the way that he weaves throughout the film all of these even sometimes very small sequences where we confuse characters for other characters because of hats shadows. It feels so obvious in effortless. Like he's not the. This isn't a film serial comic book or something where people are wearing masks or makeup or anything crazy it just. It's such a little subtle thing that has such a huge payoff in the end scene of the film. I think brings us also right back into that kind of horror movie territory where it's exactly like you just said it. It's it's like that feeling of watching a horror movie in and screaming or wanting to scream to the character like don't leave go out the front door. Don't go down there which I don't think happens with crime films very often. Belmondo comes in and we don't know if current is still there or not ambassador. Belmondo comes any looks around. The room doesn't SEE ANYTHING WITH ANY SEES. Maurice on the floor and it goes over to him and I love how Maurice with his dying breath tells him to look behind the screen and then we have a motto standing up very quickly shooting this kind of Chinese screen. That's their Japanese. I'm not sure shoots the screen and then the body coming out from behind it and you're talking about horror movie. I mean this is almost like you know. Shooting Michael Myers or Jason or something that he can't be stopped even though he's gotten all of these shots and him and Beaumont thinks he's out of the woods he turns around and the guy gets one final shot off and shoots him right in the back. Your heart just goes out to him because here he was going to have this beautiful house that he's in he's got the girl now. Everything is set up for beautiful tranquil life of the future and it's all just being pulled away from them. I don't WanNa be accused of being too picky here but one other thing that's struck me and stuck me as being a little odd is the fact that this is pouring down rain storm and yet there's a long long driveway up to the house yet. Both Marie and silly and choose to walk all the way from the street to the House now I just thought that was something else that was a little odd and once again. I just thought it was a Melville's choice because he'd like the mood and the atmosphere of the rain coming down on these guys and stopping by the Horse and you know reference to juggle their on the way to the house so I don't know if you guys felt that way or not. I think you need to take your negativity elsewhere. I know for sure. Belmondo is dragging big American looking car and I don't know if it would have fit inside the gates get but there are tire tracks in the mud. There are tire tracks. Yes you would think. Hey it's raining. I think I'll drive up to the house. But but the atmosphere. I know that's what I'm saying. It's like lamping lamp doesn't matter but it's there for a purpose to be used in a few seconds and this is like the the long walk to his fate. You know in the rain. Of course that's you know that's mythic. I can't remember who it's from. Maybe maybe Glenn Kenny. Or it's from another film critic Basically talks about the world's that Melville creates as being almost like science fiction. Where you know you're watching a crime film and most crime films. Lean pretty heavily into realism. Whereas Melville doesn't it's like the elements that we associated with normal day to day. Are there a deception or manipulation? And they're all it's like the more you watch his films especially his later ones there so many things that don't make logical sense such as the placement of objects or the decisions that characters May. But I think that's why I love them so much because it's it's exactly like you said it gives them this sort of mythic otherworldly quality. That did like this isn't the regular world I'm going through all of Melville's titles in my head and I'm trying to think of any that end with a happy ending. Nope don't don't try. I apologize to anyone who is listening to this episode. Who had if you've never seen a Melville film I'm GonNa ruin them all for you right now. By saying he is one hundred percent dedicated to killing off his characters or at least making sure people are miserable alone by the end of the film if they survive I mean. I think it's his next film which is magnet of doom the English title and the perfect. Yeah that's the perfect title for all of his films because no matter what they are always being pulled to their doom. One of my favorite definitions of film noir is that at the beginning of the movie or the book or whatever you are fucked in by the end of it. You're even more Fox and that's how it is with this that this him getting up calling. Fabian I won't be coming home. The hat falling off and ending on that beautiful shot of the hat in the music coming in and just giving this kind of like three chords hitting that like this death toll. That just happened these three dead bodies in this room. It is just yeah you walk out of the theater just devastated but thrilled at the same time as much as I've referenced influences I Melville I feel that Coen brothers had to have seen this particular film. Because it's like Miller's crossing the stuff reminds me of stuff that would show up in Miller's crossing there's a couple times were just like a character will just as at and that reminds me of something of a character doing something like that net particular fill and the with the hat falling to the ground enrolling. A little bit little bit. Is You know much like something. That's crossing when they're out bearing the treasure. I keep thinking of Stephen Shamir with that ice scraper. That'll put the ice scraper in here by the snow. Yeah certainly there are a couple of different things we could list but I think his films and La- duos in particular is such a foundational film that inspired the crime movies. That came after it. I mean briefy definitely there there. Wouldn't this wouldn't exist without revealing some form but it's just I think it sort of really kind of set the tone for what a lot of crime films later in the sixties in the seventies would do and I mean granted. I don't think most of them do it. As brilliantly as Melville does but the other thing I just wanted to say because this is my sort of like thing that I always have to bring it back to but I think it's important to remember when you watch these films and you think about how miserable and kind of nihilistic the endings are and everyone dies you can't for a minute forget. That Melville was somebody who fought in World War. Two end was a survivor of war atrocities in a sense and I think that tone that really kind of bleak tone throughout his films is something that you can't separate from that. I remember hearing a commentary on this in which there was some controversy from some corners about the very notion the very idea of creating a world of French gangsters because with some people struck a bad chord because they associated French gangsters during the war with being people who informed to the Nazis against the resistance but you gotTa Cut Melville Pass because he was a member of the resistance. So I'm sure that that was not as intention to glorify glamorize these guys. It's much more complicated than that. I don't think you can especially in terms of talking about France. I don't think you can divide it into this. These two distinct groups of resistance members informants because the majority of the French population. They might not have been outright informants most of them at minimum tolerated the Nazis and accepted this life of collaboration. And so I think that's something else that you see a lot of his films that no one can be trusted and the sort of gangsters that you're referring to usually where people involved in black market sales during World War Two Of which there were many some of them were informants like Chappel informants. Some of them were just people trying to survive who were opportunistic. And maybe didn't help the Nazis but didn't really go out of their way to help anyone but themselves that's where a lot of these sorts of characters in his films come from is just this sense that everybody always has some agenda. People have secrets. You can't trust anyone this whole idea in the plot of land that there's this reveal where we find out this character that we thought was kind of an innocent victim really set the whole thing in motion. I think that also relates back to a lot of his wartime experiences with the trail. The film in general was a very successful film in France. Both with critics and audiences. But I'm just referring to review. I think it was Jack. Revette who actually made that criticism jock. Vet The crankiest reviewer in the history of cinema. God Love Him. Why Melville is known for his gangster films. But when you look at it from what vies for that spot as long as far as how many movies he made in the gangster genre versus the resistance genre. I mean he made at least three films that are very solidly about the resistance and it felt like he just kept going back and forth between those you know with signs of the sea and then Bob the Flam bear but then you get lawyer Leon Morin and then you get to know these films and then you have. You know where he's he just keeps getting better and better and better. You have the same Samurai and that's followed by army of shadows and ending it out with the circle ruse and flick. So it's just like he's going back and forth between. Am I talking about gangsters? Am I talking about the resistance so I can see that there is probably like you were saying this whole idea? These people on the outside and not part of the mainstream even when you look at Army of shadows you've got Lino Ventura in there who. It's just such a such a little twist on his character from the second breath you know. It's not not like he's that far distant from the one character to the other character. I love it. Yeah he really is. Somebody who I don't think has a bad film. I mean it seems like people don't so the first couple films he made were melodramas. And even the Silence Dylan. Mayor is sort of melodrama and. I even think those are amazing. I mean they might not have this sort of trademark Melville Genre nods that his later films do but they still have. That seem tone of everything miserable. Trust no one. Everyone's going to die. Let's fall to excuse. My French is primarily thought of as being cocteau film. I know but it still has the same. Like if you watch back back End when you read this letter. Which is this very depressing romantic. Melodrama that he made with Juliette Greco they have very similar tones. I rarely even seen a reference to it. Bootlegs MY FRIEND. I was desperate. I was desperate to see you. Hang out with those kind of people. Okay yes no for lots of years. I mean the first copy of magnet of doom that I ever saw was this beat to shit. I think it was projected on a wall and recorded off of that and it was just pink as all get out. It was nasty nasty nasty. My friend that was on a like a couple of months ago it's magical since xfinity is removed. It vote it will now it is available on DVD. You can get that you can get too many Manhattan but for a long time these that as to how they were nearly impossible to find. I remember as I was re watching the second breath yesterday. I was like this seems so familiar but in a different way than I'm familiar with a film and then I finally realized that I had helped marry up the subtitles with a really nice version of it. That imported from France so I had subtitles that I managed to get from vhs and then had the DVD copy of it. And I was there marrying the two. And so yeah. I'm like intimately familiar with that movie a weird way. But that's what makes being a film Fan. So exciting is when you have to when you have to sort of like wander off the beaten path and explore no-man's-land for awhile. Yeah as we're going through weird sites trying to find rare check films and are there English subtitles available or can I take this file? That's actually in Serbia and translated into English. Will that be good enough? The adventure never ends. I have bought more my share bootlegs. I'll admit it like I said it was really tough to get these films for long time. It was like Bob La Flam bear and do where the only vhs things I could find Bhai. Him and lay. Samurai was just this mysterious thing that I heard about the circle. Rouge was something that I heard about. I mean it took a long time for these come to VHS to DVD. And now to BLU ray. Not even all of them are on Blu Ray yet and it's just it's yeah it's difficult. I mean when I was reading a I'm trying to remember which article it was. They were saying. Oh Yeah he did the short twenty four hours in the life of a clown which is believed to be lost. It's like no. They've found that but for years it was gone and you could not see. That really hasn't been only until recently within I think the last ten fifteen years or so. That army of shadows has gained the status. That had has anos price due to our restoration or something a it seemed when a hit started hitting a revival circuit. And everything like. It's almost like a new Melville the way it was approached. Yeah and that's one of the things that honestly kind of frustrates me a little bit. Is this sense that you have to have something be named as part of this. Canon of good films. It's like I get these are films and obviously all of us love film noir and at this point there are now many many critics and academics. Who think there are some you know world cinema masterpieces in film noir? But for a long time people thought crime films were not worthwhile like cinema and I think it's gone by the decades. It's like the films from the Thirties and forties were finally considered to be important and then we sort of move onto simulator films but even now the way the way people talk about crime thrillers is like it's just this sort of cheap genre. It's not it's not something that can be real cinema and so I'm glad that Melville has finally like you know. Now you don't have to dig in the Armpit s crack of the Internet to define some of his movies but at the same time. It really frustrates me. That things like army of shadows are being appreciated as classics only more recently. Because it's like what the hell film did those people see thirty years ago. Like it's incredible. I don't understand how you could watch that. And think like while. This is too nihilistic or this isn't realistic enough site get your heads out of your asses. We'll even still now. It's Melville stuff. I mean. I mentioned well. Actually you mentioned two men in Manhattan and that gets dumped on gets dumped on magnet of doom gets dumped on like these are the movies that will not inflict necessarily but well no I was just saying to men and magnet. Were so difficult to see for so many years and then people just dump on them and it's like. Have you really seen this movie? But yeah I agree with you. Inflict gets dumped on a ton and I love it. I mean that train heist forget about it. It's amazing yeah that really grinding. My gears I like total highlight of my career. Last year I got to do commentaries for the Delos and four on flick and talking about that scene in on flick like for my commentary. It makes me so angry because like if you go back and you read especially the reviews from when the film came out there like this is terrible. This is ridiculous. He did something wrong with these camera. Lenses. Why is this foam so blue? And it's like have you not seen any of his other films like he uses specific color. Tinting he doesn't La- Samurai like it's not like he only did it for this one film and I had people write me on the Internet like. Oh I listened to your commentary and it never occurred to me that he did those things on purpose. It's like what what he was so intentional with everything. How could it not occur to admit it upsets me? I need to take a breath that storm at the beginning and the way that you see it building and everything mean yeah his use of the cool color Palette and that and like Samurai and then to use the lawn and those to an endless circle ruse just. It was such a great relationship. I mean Dhillon is just. He was such a perfect Melville protagonists. Especially if you give us that. I think there's a voiceover at the beginning of conflict that we'd never come back to so it's like you're in his head identify with him but then you know he's just thinks throughout so much that movie. Okay you guys. I have a copy of inflict film so no spoilers bleed. Oh all you have to know is that it's amazing and I'll listen to your commentary on it. I may watch commentary the first time through. I hope you like it. Have you guys had a chance to see code? Name Melville. No actually. We're okay what I threw it in the dropbox for. Y'All sorry that I didn't throw it in there earlier. It is a documentary about Melville and it mostly deals with his war years. And then how that would play into other things and how you would see things through his films about his work in the resistance they had a little bit about the gangster films and they're not nearly as much as the The non gang stuff. Not as much as it was more about the resistance films but yeah it's really worth a look. I highly recommend it such an interesting character because he gave a lot of interviews. He was not shy about giving interviews but he really wouldn't talk about the nuts he was talking about the filmmaking process but he wouldn't necessarily talk about what things meant. That much is what I would see. And I don't know if you guys agree with that. But like in interviews. He would talk about film and the passion fulfill but he never really gave away the store. I think he tried to call to cultivate an image with the Stetson hat the song and is just personal style and at that time this is around the time when there was a cult surrounding film directors. So you'd see that Clues owes another one. Who WITH THE PIPE? And everything. These are guys who I think were consciously trying to cultivate an image definitely. Melville was you know was his I guess. Apparently he liked to drive American cars and and all the interviews and stuff. He is soaking that attention up. Yeah he was just definitely just one of many. I mean probably the single biggest perpetrator as Fritz Lang. Who was so controlling of his own image that he hit entire parts of his biography and told the sort of especially in terms of directors who were related to the war or when some way involved everybody refers to this story about how you know. He sat down and had a meeting with Gurgles and gurgles wanted him to be the of chief. Nazi filmmaker and the next day. He left the country. But it's like sorry that that doesn't really chalk up to actual history and I think a lot of them Melville included were incredible storytellers and they made their own lives part of their stories. And I don't I think it sort of delightful to find out when they may be necessarily colored outside of the lines a bit. Think there's anything wrong with it. I guess I think it's just part of the whole package of being an artist. I guess yeah one of the Articles. I read actually called into question. Melville being part of the resistance which was a little upsetting to me. Because that seems like it's part of his mythology but at the same time and I believe that he was and I was glad this code name Melville film of goes into that a little bit more but I was glad to hear slow. It's so amazing to watch the interviews with focus learned off through the years. Because there's one encode Melville there's one on the criteria and there's one on the KENO DISC. So you get to watch this guy age through the year and talk of tell these stories and he's great too because you would think to interviews with a filmmaker about another filmmaker. He's going to tell the exact same stories but he never repeats himself in any of these interviews that I've seen but the thing that I'd like that Short enough said was yeah. He was part of the resistance but he never talked about it. He never had war stories that he was GonNa sit and boast about that was not his style and I was like. Oh that's really nice. He took it very seriously. And that's may be kind of how you know that for him. It wasn't just storytelling. It wasn't boasting these were experiences that affected him very very deeply and I mean his movies are basically all about trauma and violence and this sort of toxic masculinity that always ends with all of the characters dying in we cannot forget that he was Jewish filmmaker during this time that he he lost people in the wars well so it but he'd never play that up instead of telling that story tells Liam Morin priest. It's interesting that he's dealing with a a priest character and that he sets up. I love the the short off was saying like he saw the idea of the priests in the Communist in Liam Moran as being on opposite sides as the cops and the gangsters and something like Lemberg that he's able to bring out this this that rivalry but this antagonism between these two groups and play them off of each other no matter which two groups that were well and and they're all always outsiders as well whether it's one side or the other doesn't seem to matter exactly all right we are going to take a break play a few messages from our sponsor and a preview for next week show.

What has been keeping you busy. I have been working super hard to finish a book. That's due this summer that I can't talk too much about yet but it does in some way involve Melville. I am always having this sort of problem where I turn in. My you know film criticism things that commentaries and stuff and I can never remember what has been announced yet or not So instead of talking about something recent. I guess I should just mention that I did those two Melville commentaries for Keno last year. So if you're interested in hearing me Yam or on more about delos there's that one and then there's also on flick which is his final film. That as we mentioned earlier gets trashed talked a lot but which I think is absolutely wonderful and that Keno disc is fantastic. I highly recommend that people pick that up because it really the the extras on that are really good and I have to say that Keno gifts criteria to run for the money. A Lotta Times. Yeah they really have been doing an amazing job especially in the last couple of years they had just you know. Almost every film they put out has commentary if they're allowed to include one and they really would those Melville releases. There are a couple of others too. I think they did. Four or five. Maybe four total last year and they really made the effort to give them a great treatment and I think they've their Keno usually is has sales pretty often so you should buy them all and Ken.

Whether you hear new or you've been here from the get-go. Thank you. This is my path and I will not stray. I'd like to share more about Herman's personal life eventually in episode coming up soon. It'll be approaching the halfway point in the story of Moby Dick. So I'll be doing episode diving into the themes in what the author was experiencing during. And after the time of writing the story. Herman's life is very, very interesting and even more. So are the numerous ideas and hypotheses and historians and literary professionals. Regarding his life at his works. I have my own views that played with over the course of the last twenty episodes. Many. Of which you can hear earlier episodes about the arc of this book. Know what hangs in the background backdrop and such. But we have not yet touched on the ever important conversation the author himself his reasons for writing the book how historic evolved over its course of writing. And what Herman Melville deepest conscious was trying to put into words. There is so so much to be said. About all of this I can't wait to share more with with you. So please stick. Now, I've been pouring over many essays of this book and biographies of Melville's adventurous and tragic life. By now you know the feelings towards her. But. There is still much mystery. Much in his person that we will never know. So much is lost in time and his timeline. Lots of things to think about. His relationships is looks beliefs, writings personally events. There all striking at interesting? Not only that, but we have the American masterpiece we've been moving through this show. That being moby Dick. I've offered many an insight into what I think the book is about. Themes, ideas, references alludes such. Indeed her mouth book is a masterpiece of American literature. Taking the form of many different beasts. And reading unlike any other novel. I forget what episode This is why I say we cannot approach this book by normal means. We must set aside all previous allocations of this book. And not read it as a modern novel. Or even a novel at all. It has been suggested by many a critic that this book is far from averaging. We know that. That is why know many of us are often put off by the book. And to no fault of their own. I want to delve much deeper into the meanings behind the book, the themes and. What critics and philosophers have thought about its meetings and my own beliefs. Some say it a true vision of Herman's pain Angst musings and misunderstandings of the world. Well, not so much misunderstanding this as an excessive knowledge. Seems Herman possesses the full globe within his ever ambitious mind. And indeed and Herman's great sentences. He surpassed the imagery philosophies of man religion is life itself. It seems he has some deeper knowledge or. Seen something, we can all see. As he delves into the absolute depths of the human psyche. We see ideas that have not been touched prior and never been touched upon since. Now, there's much to say regarding all of this. And I mean a whole lot. I'll saving compile offer special episode about the life and the meetings behind this book, but you can hear a lot of what I believe throughout my episodes. Put together most likely near the end of the book as a conclusion. I'm also going to put together episode going into details about her his early life. And Adventures his writing career as I mentioned. I hope you enjoyed last episode as we met the dollar and witnessed first lower income. Was a frightful seen as well for struck. Storm came in small boats were in hot pursuit of the pot of sperm. Whales. One of the boats was broken by a rising wail and quick at struggled Harper. Miss Mailing crew thrown into the swell. Help you all felt like you were right there. Beside Ishmael the whole time. Now we also briefly medicare actor named for dollar. Ford or to the crew of foreigners. As him and five other men were hidden deep the shins entire time. If some reason you ask yourself why? Well it wasn't sure it's Rahab. Extra crew is personal crew to demand. A crew that he knew was phenomenal. Almost unworldly what they did. When they were down in the water, a for Dala and crew. In their small rowboat. Jettison, far ahead of all the other boats. Some which had some of the best rowers. Hot Halves boat jetted so far head. Is something unworldly or his Phantom crew really that strong. To take some time to speak a bit deeper Dala. As I have been speaking with a few scholars about him. They have raised questions not yet thought of. The first being for Dallas reason behind helping. Ahab. As I mentioned last episode some say he is a true profit in this story. The truest one in the whole novel I have heard talk that he is a devil disguise. Having made a deal with Ahab to help me. act. His revenge. Think about the way the book I describes him. As a snake. I do want to say though that. In the upcoming portions of the book. There are times when awareness of self. SHOWS UP IN FIDEL. But. We'll get there that comes. Just want you to keep all these things in mind. But. I do find it highly interesting to think that maybe Fidel has some form of the devil. And he's made some sick deal with a half. In favor of his soul. And so that explains Fidel reasoning behind helping a hat. And also, they're almost other worldly strength and how Fidel seems to know so much more than the rest of the crew. We'll see in this episode that Fidel seems to be some sort of influential figure to have. This is something that's commonly spoken about among critics and such. I cannot wait to dive deeper into him as a story brings him on. Just keep these things in mind. But also. Make up your mind for yourself. What do you think the reasoning for being here is Is he just a normal man? Or do you think Ahab has made a deal with the devil? We met a house boat and crew. Picked smells brain about his feeling on waleed. Now he seen it as true dangerous, he's even written the will. Feels the weight off his shoulders? Every day he has. He's grateful for. and I wonder if this is some sort of deep hunch towards the future inside of him. You'll also remember the ominous signs. The spider allies warning. All these things. You smell ignored until it was too late. As events unfold more and more is showed to smell on the reader. Is begins to accept his undecided fate. The brush was death seems to not have bothered anyone else. is they're all used to it We also had a talk about how many see understand death and indifference in this world. Now before we move pass area. Is a small chapter called a houseboat in crew. It. Speaks just a bit more about the situation we saw in prior episode. But if looked at philosophically but afflict at deeply, it really is quite the moving passage could easily be overlooked. And it builds beautifully in intensity the small chapter until it releases an a beautiful poetic and deeply philosophical conclusion. Let's your stop talking to flash because they returned to the P. quote. Menarini early morning. Law. Mr? Plus. See that. You saw. Incredible? One, leg standing in like that. You wouldn't catch me doing that I had to plug the hole with my timber toe. Maybe. I. Don't think it's still incredibly thorough. If he'd lost his leg at the hip. Maybe so But. You know he has one good knee. And a decent part of the left my G. Do you know that for sure my little man. I've never seen him Neil. Have you. We learn that often argued in the wealth issues of the world whether captain should participate in the hunt. I know it's been a while, but we had a fun historical reference here. Where referred the great ancient military commander by the name of Timour. Who fought hundreds of battles in European and Asian countries. One, who fought many battles alongside his men even as a commander? In stories go that his warriors begged him to fight alongside them. Here is meal compares Ahab to him. But with Ahab the question appears different. This is a special case. The success of the voyage is highly dependent upon the capital survival. Every single instant of a whale hunt imposes danger upon you. Should. Handicapped man be doing this sort of thing Surly, the owners of the pequine did not think so nor do they know about these things? You'll remember P lag bill dad, the owners. Asked for the next. Small Park. His mouth says that quote. In a whaler wonder Soon Wade and the wonder of new crew faded away. Unquote. He speaks about how they often see strange things people at sea it. At this point, the devil himself could climb up the side of the ship to chat with a cab. And now it's doable. Excitement would be created before castle. And though this, Phantom crew soon found their place amongst the rest of the P. Kwok's through. They still remain somehow distinct from them. especially. If Adela as Melville at all described mystery that is videla. Melville you some very deep language regarding the origin of man and humanities reaction to strangers people. We don't know or in a broader sense things we do not understand. What we don't understand scarce. These are my insights. I love to hear what you feel it what you think about this. Now, we cannot forget the racial aspects of the sailors in this time period. We also here for dollar compared to some kind of mystical beings. And he has a very mysterious influence over a half. Now, the next chapter is very cool and expounded upon the mystery that is surrounding the crew right now. It's called the spirits, bow but it also serves as a wonderful description of the cruise whereabouts. And is rather peaceful chapter. I believe that it shows a sharp contrast of an evil as the entire book does. It reflects a cab Ismael. The entire narrative it also offers solemn hinting towards dismally vets. And shows us even more. So a hat restless obsession. Let's hear from Ishmael with a crew that. It feel free to check out the map of the P. quads crews. I'll put at least two and the show notes. The North Atlantic. Down Past Cape Verde. Doubt. Sees. Close to data platter. To section of order known as. Plate, way to. Grounds. Waters, wilder don't, state.

And so there was also a war within a half just. A space glow in the dancing moonlight. Though his one live leg made lively echoes along the deck. Every stroke of his dead limbs like a coffin tap. Very life and death, this man walked. But build a ship. Sped From every I eager glance shot like Eros. Silvery jet with no more he that night.

They disappear for a night to. Back. It would be for the third. Many men of the pequine began applying fearsome feeling to this ghostly white founded in the distance. Didn't WanNA look at anymore. Others felt enamored by its beauty. Some claim it to be terribly ghostly spout of the whale Moby Dick. They dreaded that White. Fountain. Almost as if it was beckoning them to some remote sees only for the well to turn on them and rented them in the most savage cease. But. In those days and their geographical locations. The weather was incredibly serene. And a strong contrast to the haunting operation that served them nearly every night. The seas around became very bland and. No life seemed to stir those waves. Almost as if the ocean itself was vacating itself all life wherever the P. Quad sailed. But at last, the turned eastwards toward the Cape of Good Hope. With a Cape Wins began blowing around them. And they rose and fell along the long troubled seas that were there. pequine with it's ivory tusks Ballard in the ways and goering the dark ocean until the great waves of white spray flew over her bows. The sense of nothing being alive around them soon vanished. But was replaced by an even more dismal site. Close to their bow out in front. Strange shadowy form started hither and thither before us. While, thick behind them flew the inscrutable see Ravens. carrying. All signs of death with their belly feathers. And every morning. Rows and rows of those birds were seed perch tie above in the rigging. Along the hemp ropes. Despite. All of the crew. They clogged to that hip. Somehow, deeming the ship some drifting uninhabited roosting place for the homeless cells. And heaved and heaved still interestingly heaves that Black Sea. As if the best tides were conscious. And the great mundane soul of the see was remorse. For the long sin and suffering bread. Crew approaches the Cape Of. The southernmost tip of Africa, very dangerous area of the sea. In the past, it was called the Cape Tormenta Oso which originally meant a tempestuous. I suppose to Cape reeked of adventure in the travelers. But here Herman takes the word to mean simply tormented. Actually describes a cease to be terribly uneasy. Lively. But still night after night that great white spirits laughed at them from the distance. As for as though. He pressed on with his continual command of the trench dangerous tax. remained reserved in very gloomy. Seldom addressed his makes. The days grew long stretched out. There were many off hours with nothing for the crew do really these grey misty sees. With ivory footings whole stood there. What had this routes as he always does. Starting directly windward. For many hours at a time. The occasional sleet start congealing his eyelashes together. His face seemed beat like old leather. The skinner out his is was filled with folds. With that long gas should scar going down his face? He stood out in front. The rest of the crew. Takes shelter. Will gather towards the F. Section of the boat the back. Out in front, the perilous seas would be bursting over the borders. Now this is a very cool awesome image to have in your mind. The entire crew stand in line along both sides of the ship. They bowling loops to the rails one for each sailor. Each big enough for a sailor to sit in and hanging it. SORT. Of like a hammock swing. A bowling sort St. Louis. Not is used for many different things. They would loop it around one of the pins. So it's kind of hanging there. Big enough to sit inside of. So in line the failure sat on both sides of the ship and swung beneath the rails. To better seal themselves from the wind and the crashing waves. So just imagine the entire crew on both sides of the boat sitting in line long rose hanging loops beneath the size of the ship. I have a friend of mine putting together an example illustration. So. Follow my instagram to see what it looks like. For many hours crew would swing into silence in those graves and The shrieks of ocean waves and the mutinous of humanity prevailed among crew. Still, the crew swung in their bowl leads. And still crazy Ahab stood up to the blast. No wonder, his face appear to beaten glove. Good pure starbuck never being able to rid himself of that terrible anxiety. Poor starbuck. One night going down to a cabin. Tell him the reading of the barometer. Type of weather meter. He was shocked and appalled to Find Ahab Asleep in an upright position. I'd like to take a listen to starbuck directly in fact. But See. It was one night amongst those tormented sees when I ran down that Scotland die. Hobbs Tavern. When I was taken aback. Nearly tripping back over the steps. that. He was. Old that terrible old man Sitting. Stock, up right. It is floor screwed share all his clothes and jacket still on. Dripping of snow and water. The Charleston role before him and a Latin clutched tightly in his rigid hand. deathly pledged I'll tell you. His body was erect still but his head thrown back. Is closed. But facing at the swinging countless that the ceiling. Is is rolled back and all white. Teeth and tongue NASA. They had look as a party zoomed. I sorta deeply. Terrible not. Leading this gale still steadfastly isis purpose. So we've got a lot here in the short chapter. The peak watt sales on under more and more dire situations. And these ominous signs are ever present. The Sea Ravens. What about the spirit spout? What is it? Is it really even there. Is the operation place thereby Dala. He's. So is it a warning of some sort? These are all outlandish ideas but. I'm contemplating here. I realized it's my turn share with you my understandings of these portions. I do not really believe for place them there, but I do not know for sure. In fact, I don't really know what I believe the spirit felt to be. I wonder what a have thought of the spout. In about a half. We are reminded here of starbucks relationship. starbucks unabated fear of have. Despite all of his honor and bravery of the past. He's been sapped all. Somehow a purpose seems his all of the crews. Some say that a made a deal with Dala. Some say he's the devil. Let us how has his influential power over the crew? Some say, that's nonsense. It's for you to decide. I don't want the press. I will say though that in my eyes, I have no feelings towards the mystery. It is whatever you think it is. Should that's how Herman Melville wanted. To. Put Your own impression despite his own feelings and reasons for writing it. I'm not sure if dollar is mortal or not. Or whether this is all some sort of supernatural prowess. Coincidence. Power or just happenings. I guess it will be a time when we all decide upon that together. But for now. We. Let that mystery wander. And comes upon another name Tuck it whaling vessel in the short chapter called the Albatross. ishmail stand is atop the masthead. Far in the distance are white looming sales. As the wrestle approaches recognize it to be an anti ship by the name of the Albatross or the Goni. All white vessel with white lines and white ropes would. Looking, quite ghostly now says it. was a wild sight. See the men on that ship perched on their own mastheads staring back at him. They were all bearded and wrapped in animal skins. This Carribean cruising for four years now. And it was headed back untuckit. The crew was ragging overgrown. remained on the masthead of the P. Quad. Three above the Albatross. As meant, stood in their iron hoops far above the deck and swayed in swung over the fathomless see. The vessel approach quite close in. As the two boats past they came so near to each other and so tilted the smells Mass Ted came so close to the other man's he felt like he could jump to it. But team of lookout outset anything to each other. The only stared on. But below on deck, the cruise hailed each other. Captains would often talk and exchange information sometimes meet with each other for drinks and conversation in the cabin. The peak quad will be meeting and greeting quite a few different vessels in this story. All, which are very unique and serve their own purpose for the narrative. Something very telling happens here though. And even the crew realizes it. The. Crew Haley other. The question is thrown. Love. The streets captain of the Albatross leaning far over the white edges of his ship. raised its trump into his mouth to project his voice over the pequine. Through the ripping gaels and the Russians see would ask that captain took a deep breath to shout back his answer. The trump fell feltham his hands and intimacy. With the winds rising captain could not get his voice hurt. By, any member of the P. quads crew. Distance between the ships grew have the crew here on the P. qualifying each other and the trump into the sea. Began talking to each other about how it fell the instant the question of the whale was asked. Seemed a terrible son. Well, they have stared on and. He looked almost wanted to lower follow that Albatross to get his answer. But instead he fetched his old job. As they called it and knowing that the Albatross was heading home today Tuck it. He shouted into this. Lawyer. Claude from round the world. Telugu Russ all future letters to the Pacific Ocean. They're not this party greer's. Dumb to address it to. At this very moment, the way crossed, the ships were too far from each other to here anymore. Those harmless fish that have been swimming alongside the peak. Why for days now? Shot away from it. Almost as if in fear. Of Voice and. Began swimming alongside the Albatross had at home. They have noticed it. When he speaks again. You swim away from me. Do you. Keep your from the world. Around the world. There is much sin that sound to inspire proud feelings in. US. But. Where does all this obligation latest to? Only through numberless dangers back to the very point we start. If only this world were endless plain of discoverable countries sees. With only our nation Baras. Then, there was promise foyer. But. In pursuit of these far mysteries, we can only dream of. Tormented Chase, of that Demon Phantom than some time or another. Before all human heart's. Desire for adventure one. While chasing such things around the globe, they either on forever and barren maces. Halfway there. Leave US advertise and. Need. More be said of this chapter. We make our own surmises. Terrible honest signs are ever present again. So. Why does Herman Melville include this instance? Well. It gives us some. Hope I suppose. Showing this vessel returning home. Unable to properly reach the P. Quad verbally. The trumpet being lost at the Question of the whale. The fish swimming away from. Ahab. Habit him realizing it. Despite a house ways I want you to try to see him as a man. As human. Somehow has some feelings of love and care left inside of him. The way describes him as Mono Maniac Monomania. Go look up with that word. It's been changed over the years but. They're still a hint of humanity there shines through. He's terrible though indeed, but leave some room. Ishmail a thirst for adventure. Well, he's got nick. Sir. No the crew was feeling inspired by a APPs grand words. Round the world. He still thinks to himself. He knows this world. There's nothing truly new discovered it. He wishes for something more. Now the big question this chapter was a hab sentence that he was cut off so quickly. The fish swam away from him. He says to address all future letters to the she. They'll be cruising in for the next three years the Pacific. And goes on to say that if he's not home by the end of three years to address his letters elsewhere. But he does not say. What was he going to say? To address them to hell. To, the abyss. Oh. is He really going to say different ocean? The he cut off his sentence and surprise of the fish swimming away. Or did he stop himself before he led the crew? No, he was certain about their demise. It's quite tricky indeed. Message me let me know what you think. Chapter fifty three. The GAM. When two strangers walk by together on a path, it's difficult to refrain from some sort of mutual salutation whether a nod or wave some exchange of words. It can feel forced and unnatural at times but. Meeting at sea the ship you know is from your area. And you happen to come across them in the wild oceans. Hula. That's natural and calls for a meeting of sorts. Now, be called again. There'd be plenty to meet over some of these captains being friends from home. Some of the sailors. Same with the sailors. The often exchange domestic conversations. For the Maritime and segers his lovers and such. This is very cool instance. The outward bound ship would pass the ship that was returning home. The outward bound vote had letters from home. They would stop and give the inbound ship these letters, and in return the ship bound home with share knowledge of the cruising grounds in. Wales whereabouts. Something that was very important for a successful and fruitful voyage. The sailors would meet and get along quite well. They all had similar goal and similar backgrounds. It was quite nice to meet in the common pursuit sharing stories of danger and other such things. The country of origin didn't really matter. As long as both parties spoke some English. Even American and English whaling vessels would occasionally GAM. Though during these, there was a certain kind of Sinus. The Englishmen were rather reserved. The Englishman sometimes as well would look down upon the American whalers and looking at them as sort of see peasants. I. Herman. Defenses fellow Americans here. He says, he does not know where the superiority complex comes from. Since all the American whaling vessels on the Ocean one day, kill more whales and all of the English ones would kill and ten years I- wailing was mainly in American business at this time. Alaska the American does not hold this heart against the Englishman. He knows he has his own character defects. So yes. For a whaler, these meetings are great thing. But it seems so only for the whaler. Merchant ships passing each other well, not so much as say a single word. And will most likely be financially judging the others ship. As for men of war marines and such when they meet, there was many professional decencies bowing such that. There doesn't seem to be very much down hearty goodwill and brotherly love about it at all. It's more superficial. Slave ships were always in a hurry and they never met. US FOR PIRATES, they may meet quickly but. But being infernal villains on both sides say like to keep to themselves. Herman Melville's wonderful wordplay signed through here. We keep all these questions in the back of our minds. Even while reading more mundane and entertaining parts of this story. What resides its spine. What is the truth theme? Is there one. This book holds mysteries as deep as those penned within it. Is, truly, remarkable. Herman describes the word. GAM. He says, it's utterly unknown to other sailors other than wailers. Indeed. Most, other types of sailors pirates even will sometimes scarf or looked down upon wailers. Calling Him blubber boilers spout. US. But Herman Melville knows his stuff and doesn't see where this looking down upon whalers comes from. He even knocks the entire idea of down. As he often does with things in this book, you may have noticed. In this time, there are many things that were just speculator false wrong I presume. Well. There's still a lot of things like that. This day I suppose. But if Herman saw something wrong with his world, he decided to make it right himself. Writing his own text upon the world. Does that sound familiar? Does Not Ahab do one in the same. This is dangerous ground. Some historians have said that the work is a true depiction of Herman himself. And I said that I believe that and I thought at the beach through as far as Ishmael definitely being Herman Melville. But. Some say that's only half of him. And the HAB is a true depiction of Herman worst and darkest sides. I cannot claim this to be true. But can claim this to be false. No. Though there has been will be much speculation. The. World will never have a solid answer. But we are given rights to our own free will and beliefs. I only wish to share mining maybe guide you through otherwise dimly lit cavern of auditees and repositories. By hand and mouth, I wished to lead you. Quitting the discussion of why and how. We are left with exactly well. Again Herman himself has PINATA definition for us. NY? Quote. GAM Noun. A social meeting of two or more while ships generally on a cruising ground when after exchanging hails they exchange visits by boats cruise. The two captains remaining for the time on board of one ship and the two chief mates on the other. Quote. So harmon tells us. We would wear out our finger trying to find a dictionary, but he believes it should be there. He claims Noah Webster's quote arc cannot have it. Small Biblical reference calling webster's dictionary on Noah's Ark for language. His brilliant is always shining through. Now, at this Cape, of good, hope, it was much like a large highway crossing of the world. Almost, like a four corners of great highway, will you come to meet more travelers than any other part of the sea? So there was a gap to be had. With another homebound Nantucket vessel encountered very shortly after the Albatross or the Goni. The ship was called the town hope. Now Town Hall was an ancient whale call. Toss away all pre junctions. This meeting however, wildly heightened the general interest and fear among the men of the pequine. Regarding, Moby Dick. That is because the town who has its own story touching moby Dick. A. Brutal death. In the store has a secret. The only few men no. Not, the captain of the town hall. Not a new very few men aboard the town who knew the whole of this unsaid story, but communicate it in secrecy during the game detached ego, the Indian Harpoon her. Nights later cash spoke in his sleep revealing portions of the story. The next morning, the men forced it out of him. Still. It was such a serious and overwhelmingly dark tale. But it never made it out of that four castle. But one of those lucky ears was this meals. and. So it's smell wishes to narrate this entire story for us the town hosts story. which has later connections to the book. And is very entertaining in and of itself. It was actually published in magazines such as a standalone story and it did well. It touches on the highly controversial subject of flogging him the whale fishery. In the army. Which Herman wrote an entire different book about but that's another story of course. I want to reiterate that the town hosts story is said by historians to contain much of the original ideas of moby. Dick. Moby Dick was re written about halfway through and largely changed due to Herman being inspired by a friend and contemporary nathaniel. Hawthorne. That is when he took the book too much higher planes. It seems though that much of his original story survives in the town hosts story. Some say Captain Bill Dad owner of p Quad who you will remember from back on Nantucket. was originally supposed to serve as an abusive captain of the Peak Quad. Before Ahab was even thought of. You may also remember mention of Tin. A whaler who was highly regarded amongst his crew that showed up in the night spider in peaking smells interest as to why Balkan can was popular amongst his amongst his fellow whalers. Some of said that Balkan ten was originally meant to play on much larger role in this story. Possibly a friend Ishmael or the near the story. But was replaced by another character still kilt and scrapped. But hints survive like the early scene. Balkan has dismissed from the book early on as they depart on Christmas. Anyway I. DON'T WANNA get confusing but I was wondering whether it bring their sort story to life for you all. I just speculation I realized that I just had to do it. And I want to be largely dramatic and very special. And so it's going to be a very great special the town hosts story, a large and lively episode that will be fully brought to life with two very special guests that will be announced soon. You'll be a huge play like the matic episode. As you hear much of that sort of thing here but only in bits. This is going to be the most dramatized episode yet. I'm so very excited for all become along with me. The shepherds have shown us much and. Mind all of our characters and their own personalities as they travel across the sea here on the peak what? Search of Moby Dick. It's been fantastic. Speak all of these wonderful and mystical happenings. I. Hope you're enjoying in please leave me reviews or next meal socials. Dr, many ways you can help or support myself. Asked me socials how you can do that. I love speaking and getting to know my listeners. Shots me. I truly hope you can pick up these books right that the fight through them with all your will. For when you do Your shooter remerged with something changed inside. something. You can only recognize being in the shoes of another. So, go on nights. Job Your source. Pick up your pens reading spectacles. Let us freedom.

The Vatican commandos and started producing electric music after dropping out of college, he pursued his career DJ, eventually siding with instinct records in the mid nineteen ninety s in one thousand nine hundred nine Moby released his fifth, and most well known album entitled play which soul. Old over twelve million copies worldwide, any went on tour for almost two years. He's written two memoirs porcelain and his latest, Thanet bala- part, which will be discussing in this episode in the book you talk about how you grew up in poverty in the long term impact, that's avenue. Can you describe that? Yeah, I grew up in Darien Connecticut, which is one of the per capita, one of the most affluent places in the world. But my mom and my dad died quite young, and so my mom and I lived in dairy, and because the schools were good, but we were on food stamps, we were on welfare. She was unemployed allot, so until I was eighteen years old. I never met another poor person and growing up poor in an affluent, and such an affluent environment. Is very disconcerting in a lot of ways because you have a constant sense of inadequacy a constant sense of shame. You know, you can't really bring people back to your house. You have to know. Pretend that the clothes you're wearing didn't come from Salvation Army, or will. So even now I mean, I've had you know, the circumstances of my life changed a lot, but I still feel like you know, if you grow up poor to some extent, you'll always self identify as being a porchet when you were at your lowest point, what was the first thing you did start to revive yourself. Bottomed out as an alcoholic and just a an emotional mess for pretty longtime. There's about six years from two thousand to two thousand eight when I finally got sober and. That bottoming out as I said it wasn't just like one or two episodes was hundreds and thousands of daily misery. And when I finally sort of emerged from it. Emerging involved admitting to myself that the things I thought were going to bring me happiness and meaning didn't, you know, whether that was fame, affluence, degeneracy depravity, you know. You know, alcohol drove all the thing that I relied on CNN happy, I had to finally mitt they weren't working. And then there's that huge challenge when you accept that the things in your life art working, but you don't have the skill set to replace them. So you have to start like humbly, cautiously assessing the other things in your life to figure, what does actually work in who are some positive influences Dalby get through that tip. And it's funny 'cause we're sitting on weaker and Elizabeth between building mountain Elizabeth. And when I was drunk, I mean, the first time I got drunk and this neighbor who was nineteen seventy eight so forty one years ago. And but I also got sober in this neighborhood, and the best teachers, I had in sobriety where the old alcoholic and a, you know, I mean, also because we're a block away from the Bowery so like AA meetings around here, especially awhile ago really gritty. You know, it wasn't like fashion stylists, who had may be had like too many glasses of Chardonnay. It was like bottomed out, Bowery drunks, who had like lost kidneys and had hepatitis seat. Like really bottomed out people, but their wisdom their simple simple and it was very unconventional at times, like. Remember this all Valerie drunk saying to me, once he said, he's basically, the key to happiness is selflessness and spirituality. This is like eight year old bottomed out our drunk, who's probably still homeless. And he said, it's he said, if you focus on spirituality and service, he said, you'll do. Okay. And I thought he was full of nonsense. Turns out he was hundred percent. Correct. Yeah. And you talk about mental health, and both are up from, as I depression is somewhat of mental health crisis in America and you everywhere in the world. People are feeling it who how do you best deal with mental health, your mental health and then, like the being at the other people that are interesting. I think first and foremost, easiest is the physical side. You know, I mean thoughts are complicated. Emotions are complicated personal histories are complicated and trying to understand thoughts and emotions and our personal histories like fair challenging, but our bodies that we can kind of understand, you know, like if you eat garbage you're going to be depressed, you're going to be second. You're gonna be depressed if you fill yourself with chemicals you're going to be depressed. So it's almost like, like I think there's the Buddha apparently said like you can't really have a troubled mind in a very healthy body. So it's like first and foremost, get healthy. And I think for a lot of people like remove the toxins, remove the super refined foods, remove the animal products, and you'll find that like a lot of depression, actually comes simply from your body trying to process stuff that it was never designed to process, and then once you've done that, and you can with the degree of clarity address, your thoughts address your. History address your feelings, and what's your best piece of crew? My best piece of career advice is might sound like a cliche, but it's above all else, love what you do. That's nothing's more important than that. Because if you love what you do like, like why is tesla? What granted he Lonzo team? But like why did tesla dwell because he loves what he does? And why did apple become like the biggest corporation and human history? Because Steve Jobs, love what he was doing if you love what you're doing. It increases the chances. You'll be good at it. It increases the chances, you'll work harder at it getting creases the chances that you'll like work through adversity. It increases the chances that, ignore the haters, like, if you don't love what you do you will doubt yourself every step of the way if you love what you, do you will be so good at what you do, and you'll work so hard at it. And then, like, for example, music, like if I make a record and it's does well fine if I make a record and it fails, I don't really care because I'd love to working on, you know, so that's. Two most important piece of advice. I could have anyone just give up too quickly. Yeah. I'm going to see how many times have we people do that, like someone start something that they're not sure about it doesn't work out. So they stopped same thing. Start stop start stop like just love like being spied by the love for what you do.
