"This podcast was inspired by mike. Who sent me an email. Asking are true mysteries of the pacific northwest. Nothing more than urban legends inspired by a book. I checked out from the rogue valley metaphysical library and trying to answer that question. The book was written by an authority. Who shall remain nameless. The book contains some events that are no more than a figment of someone or an urban legend. Like the dog that ate a tiny cell foam and every time someone called stomach would rain. Some were started by celebrities like mickey rooney claiming that he had influence walt disney to call his cartoon mouse mickey mouse. Then there's urban legend about elvis presley giving a harley davidson motorcycle to actor james dean. Well sorry. none of these happened before. I reveal my favorite urban legends. I need to explain how i separate real and true from something invented by a person with an ulterior motive or an urban legend occasionally. I do find a witness or participant to an event that can't be explained away and are willing to talk about it but that's the exception not the rule. Most people are reluctant. Admit that they saw ghost or heard strange laughter when they were home alone for fear of being ridiculed. When event is brought to my attention or intrigued by a story on the internet my search for sources begins. I'll start with the photograph of a pterodactyl that appeared on the internet that allegedly dates back to the american civil war in eighteen. Sixty four courting to the story behind the mystery. Image giant flying creature was shot down by soldiers around eighteen sixty four. near the city of vicksburg. The story says it's soldier said the creature was like some kind of unknown bird monster in a surprising. Twist of the story. A second photograph appeared on the internet.

Authorities said several newspapers in virginia said that one photograph in front of the barn was fake. Now if you drop me. A line kit k. chrome g mail dot com.

They're going to rent out a theater, they had a theater lined up in Washington DC, where is that story? I love this story and they were going to do a play. What kind of a play were they going to do?

It's hiding I don't know why it's heading but a lot of stories to lots and lots. Of great stories to get to. We got transgender. It's a transgender woman we're going to need new words for this. I think because we got another trek star the NCAA track championship this is wonderful stuff.

Robert Muller with his big declaration yesterday in the news media, and the Democrats, but I repeat myself are clamoring for impeachment because they heard a dog whistle somewhere. And there they heard words you have to read between the lines because the words aren't in the lines that you had read, so somewhere, not in the lines, where the words are you will find a secret coded message and encrypted message from Robert Muller to the news media, and the Democrats that this means that zombies that they are they heard this magic is invisible words, the inaudible words and only they can hear them and they heard Muller calling for impeachment. I will explain that a little more. As we go because we have the audio and then we have the president covering the waterfront, I'm telling you is all over this thing. Now before we go.

"Country either grandpa. Literally all the time. It'd be like going. Oh, yeah. That's right. Exactly, I do that. Now is that bad? Just a woman to answer a question or to tell a story on eighteen tangents that I also forget where I'm going sometimes. I got more. Good news. Yes. I have a new favorite person. Remember the steamed actor Mickey Rooney. Yes. He's no longer with us. Oh, that's right. That's right. He's not coming out about him that I love really what why is anything coming out about a dead person. Wait, wait, Mickey Rooney's got it on Judy Garland. Right. Okay. That's right. Shortened stature. He was twenty four. She was fourteen my gosh, really, that's downright scandalous. She should basically file a lawsuit like retroactively is. She alive. I don't think. So. Should file a lawsuit against him? There's a fella named Craig Bennett. And he's got a new book out called true confessions of a shameless gossip and this book is all about Hollywood stars. And various things about them juicy and there's a whole bunch of stuff on Mickey Rooney mainly this is credible. Mickey Rooney use to lineup quote auditions with Spiring young actresses for quote roles that didn't exist. So he could bang them. Oh, you gotta be kidding. And they were probably willing for roll Maki Rooney. He's like he was like the doogie howser generation. The book says this guy was nothing like his public percents, but he was a total scumbag.

"Hey there, folks. It's the Metaxas show. We're talking about Mickey Rooney show business all kinds of fun stuff. I'm talking to the authors of the life and times of Mickey Rooney and extraordinary biography of great Mickey Rooney Rick alerts men and William Burns again. Welcome to the program to ask you when I met Mickey Rooney. I was with the cabinet. We were in his dressing room talking to him. And it was it was very touching to meet him at that stage of his life because he was clearly old a clearly broken eating a buck in the course of the evening. He spoke about Judy Garland would such love. I just thought they must have really loved each other probably more platonic than not. But it really seemed like he had an affection for her that was remarkable as teenagers as teenagers at MGM talk about exploited children. Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland MGM in the late thirties. Early forties. Were they were keeping the studio alive. So you're the important thing about this just from just motion picture perspective all the studios in from the latter part of the depression on we'll seriously losing money and the adult stars at paramount at MGM Warner. They just weren't bringing in the big box office audiences. And when and when Mickey Rooney started in the Andy hardy Louis mayor thought. Kind of B-movie it's not gonna make money. I mean, it's just it's for kids. They were teenagers that were going to see the Andy hardy films like. Three and four times and suddenly MGM realized they discovered an entirely new demographic when Judy Garland in one thousand nine hundred thirty eight sang the love song, you made me love you to Clark a photo of Clark Gable? What audiences went berserk? So when they teamed up Mickey and Judy in those first musicals again, it was an entirely new market, those musicals those Busby. Berkeley backyard musicals that became older highschool all the highschool musicals of today. Keep these kids working what Louis mayor did was he had them shot up with a methamphetamine type a methamphetamine type drugs all during the day, and they put in a good fourteen hour days and at night. He would knock him out with a barbiturates. Oh that's during their teenage years. That's what they learned. That is unbelievable it this is not the same doctor as the Dr feelgood of your other book is it. Dr. But the same drugs the same drug the same concept. It's an amazing thing. I mean, I've never been shot up with methamphetamines. I can only imagine what this does to you over the long run. It's just gotta be horrific. Judy's case it was long term. And you know, Judy was affected all her life. If I had a chance to get the meat. Mickey beams was Judy class house good. He said she had a death wish. I mean, it it it it really stems from that time at MGM where the pressure was all on her, and they just kept you're losing weight to methamphetamine fossil capture a vibrant and alive for films before the camera and didn't they pretty much force her to have an abortion? Sure that forced the fact that force. Lana Turner who Mickey got pregnant in nineteen thirty eight. Having an abortion. So the the studio wonder Louis mayor, and Eddie Mannix, and the rest of those kind of songs that we felt out really controlled these the the lives and especially the lives of these child stairs. Because I read a couple of places that that really torn her apart for the rest of her life that she. Yes. Yes. She said it did. And Mickey admitted to she said that she said that it was the drugs. She took a teenager that stayed with her throughout her whole adult life. And and that's why Mickey after I think it was in the sixties. He really wanted to get her picked up taken to a place where she could be left alone not drugs. And but she died before you had the chance to do that. And she was so young. We forget I mean, she was not exactly an old woman at that point. She was what inter forties choosing. When she does forty eight when she died. Yeah. I mean unbelievable. My gosh. My gosh. So now when we're talking about Mickey Rooney again in his heyday, he was making tons of money for the studios, but ultimately they were using him and Judy Garland that that in the long run. They eventually cast him aside effectively. Contract players when Miki could no longer fit into the roles. MGM water them to inhabit. They basically moved him aside. That's why she formed or. Yes, he formed his own production company with this person Sam Stevo, and it was one of the first independent production companies in Hollywood. I mean Mickey also started that whole concept is well, independent production company. Owning the movies developing the movies he was in and then selling off the distribution rights to the studios. And why do you think we've just got a couple of seconds of the segment, but why do you think he was married? Eight times. That's just unbelievable. He he really had a lack of commitment. He really was. He was kind of raised as a feral person. He had no moral compass is mother was a prostitute with early in his life. Ran off. And he didn't see him for from a number of years. So he had really no direction. Just wanna win. We're going to go to another break, folks. I'm talking to the authors of biography the life and times of Mickey Rooney. It's metaxas. Show. Stick around. Hey, Alvin isn't.

"Was there Mickey Rooney anyway, terrible. But I knew it was him. You know, your father's voice. I'm like dad, and he was like. Hung up on me. Riley took every shortcut he could to make a buck. For a time. He wrote porn under the pseudonym Zachary quill. One of his books. Glowing heat. She says her mother told her that Riley had walked out a formula. She said, oh, well daddy stood get all these chief novels, and then he would write porn scenes, and he would have typhus insert the porn scenes in these crappy novels and resell them. This was tasha's life. Things are always off kilter confusing. She remembers another time where they have to flee their house before the landlord came probably because Riley hadn't paid the rent. We got in this rickety all truck with all our stuff jammed in it and. My father's encyclopedia. Fuck music was in there. Very carefully packed. Those were the biggest boxes that we took. And all other stuff was just kind of strewn in this truck. And it wasn't very well. Packed. And when we were driving down the highway it was so weird. You know, people were pointing out us and trying to get our attention. And we were like, I mean, I remember my mother being like why why are they waving at us? And then realizing oh, our stuff is flying out like are slim belongings that we had pared down from selling almost everything else. Those things were flying out not the encyclopedia of music, but my clothes and what few things. By the late nineteen seventies. The family had settled in porterville, California.

"For the holiday season Mickey Rooney for Evans sake. One of the great stars any back to the nineteen thirties was doing Panthera fierce go I think in Sunderland or somewhere like they're. So you never know who you're gonna find. Where do you also see that? There are a lot of the classic musicals that tend to get bit more attention over the holidays as well. I'm talking about act such as forty second street, which is due to wrap up in January here in London, but it has been running for quite a long time. Hit now. But it seems to me that they're all even more people talking about that and be classic musical at this time of year to those sorts of things tend to fall into the holiday spectrum as well. Sure. I mean, they're not holiday shows. And of course, if you're the producer of forty second street, you would want to be playing to good houses twelve months, you're not just two weeks of the year. But in London and New York as well shows tend to clear out or theaters tend to clear out the shows in them in January, January February are very very dead dome months for theater any where people don't have money, it's cold snowy. They wanna stand sought interest retrench for the spring. So Christmas is kind of the last push and certain shows, of course, lend themselves better than others. Tha that forty second street, I think is top of the tree because it's big it's lavish spectacle, it's something that really does appeal to all generations, you could take your maiden aunt. And you know, your great grandmother, and you know, the kid who's never been to the theater, and everyone will get something out of the I think it's a cast of fifty eight or something like that. That's a lot of dancing feet, and you know, kinky boots. Although as the total suggest might be a little kinky for your maiden aunt. That's another show this closing in January that will probably have a last minute push for the holidays. And it's got its quotient of, you know, bubbles Bengals and beads as you would expect from the leg wear implied in the title. So if your family is maybe a bit more progressive that might be something that you would take them too. So yeah. And in box office terms. There's no doubt that Christmas is what Eubank upon because the Christmas new years week is the one week of year when even shows that don't do. Well,.
