A highlight from The poison salon with Rose Biggin
"At Breaking the Glass Slipper, we believe it is important to have conversations about women and issues of intersectional feminism within science fiction, fantasy and horror. To continue to do so, we need your help. Please consider supporting us on Patreon. Join the conversation by following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Hello and welcome to Breaking the Glass Slipper. I'm Lucy Hounsom. And I'm Megan Lee. In the preface to Les Fleurs du Mal, The Flowers of Evil, Baudelaire indicated that boredom is the truest suffering, and this idea later became central to the fin de siècle movement of the 1890s, an era of decadence in which artifice masqueraded as, or was even elevated to the status of, art. The Belladonna Invitation by Rose Biggin is a gothic exploration of the cult and cost of celebrity. It looks at the consequences of wealth, the ethical complexity of aestheticism, and ultimately asks the question, is celebrity or the mask of it worth dying for? We are extremely fortunate to have Rose with us on the show today. I loved this book, I devoured it in a couple of days. So I'm really keen to chat to Rose all about it. Would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners? Hi, I'm Rose Biggin. I'm a writer and a theatre maker based in London. I work between performance and I do a bit of dance and I do a bit of writing, short fiction and novels, often exploring things like art and artifice. So thank you for having me. As I said, I absolutely adored The Belladonna Invitation, which is out now from Ghost Orchid Press. It's a small press that's putting out some really exciting books at the moment. So I do urge everybody to just go and have a look at their titles. We're hoping to talk to some of their authors, other authors later in the year as well. Since you mentioned art and artifice, and I've mentioned also one of my favourite literary periods, the 1890s for the Fada Siekla, which is, yeah, it produced some really remarkable novels. But what I really liked in your book is this idea of death salons, this exclusive and expensive gathering where guests deliberately poison themselves. And I felt like that suggests that wealth directly enables the taking of absurd risks in pursuit of sensation. And this is horribly topical. I'm sure you know what I'm referring to at the moment, this having money and that leads directly to your doom. I wanted to dig into this idea of extreme wealth leading to a possible disregard for life itself. Yes. Well, the poison salons were something that came right at the start of the conceptualisation of the novel, before the idea was even novel sized. Maybe I could get to that later. But I immediately knew from the beginning about the dark, fin de siekla world that I wanted to set the story in, the main character, Bella Donna, her name, what she would do, the work she would do. This was all part of the texture of that world. I think the poison salon is the exclusive secret thing that she runs at the end of the official salons that just felt like a very interesting way to make those themes a bit tangible and a little bit tasty, I suppose, a sort of texture to the world. But I think something that interests me is that the character Bella Donna works in this world. She runs these salons and she takes on a very ambitious devotee apprentice and that's the perspective character. That's who we see the story, who we see the novel through in her eyes. Quite quickly, they get a little bit used to it. We have this glamorous showpiece thing she does, but what I was quite interested was showing the work that goes on beneath creating that kind of glamorous or that dangerous or that show -stopping event. They actually get a little bit used to it. It's central to what they do, but it's also part of the job. They run these things and the business and the practicalities of running these things, what it takes to uphold that glamorous edifice. We sort of see underneath that. There's a moment when the perspective character first learns about the poison salon because she doesn't walk in on day one. She's led up to experiencing it. She asks Bella Donna, I can't remember the exact quote, but why people come to this, why people do this. Bella Donna says, she words it a lot better than I would say it, but she says something like, she doesn't know why. It's either obvious or she's sure she doesn't want to know. We're at a little bit of distance from why people come to this. It's sort of a texture of that kind of world where we then see the relationship between the Bella Donna, who's this socialite, this mysterious character and her apprentices. They're working it through. I suppose equally, it's interesting to think that people do get blind drunk at parties and die from that. They take drugs. This perspective isn't one I don't have a particularly strong position about people doing high risk things to get a high. I'm quite liberal about that. It's just that I think the extremeness of the sort of poison berries and the way that is a combination of beauty and danger and the temptation of it feels like something. The Bella Donna is selling you that as an idea as well. The novel is kind of selling it to you as a reader. This is something someone's doing, but also her job is to sort of sell that it is particularly dangerous, particularly cool. That's part of her Fin de Sica celebrity and her glamour. Of course, after the apprentice character has done it once, she never wants to do it again. I think there's a relationship between this thing, this glamorous, decadent, dangerous thing, the poison salon, but part of the mystique of that and the upholding and the creation of the mystique of that is sort of where the book's territory really is. I love this exploration of the fact that they're very expensive. They're exclusive. Not anybody can just get into one of these poison salons. It just raises the idea of what I mentioned in the intro, this Baudelaire's saying that it's like the worst thing, the worst misery is boredom. Is that what happens when you have this extreme wealth and privilege that it's kind of horrible because the welfare state wasn't established in that period. There were tons of people who were living in abject poverty, scrabbling at life to try and keep on living. Then you've got this aristocratic class who was so wealthy that they are eating poison to try and get some kind of kick out of them. I think that that juxtaposition is that the whole moral question surrounding those ideas is so fascinating. But also, everyone knows not many people can get in. The exclusivity of it is, they talk about that. They know that's part of, you have to uphold. You have to uphold that. That's part of the fun. There is a huge consequence to, well, not just the poison salons themselves, but to the way that Belladonna behaves towards men who fall in love with her. It does force us to question the moral integrity of the world that she's constructed around herself. Was that something that was central also to you that you wanted to explore? It's a glamorous, beautiful world, but it comes at a huge cost to some people. Yeah, well, it's worth saying that the big, dramatic, jealous lover moment, I don't think it's a spoiler really because he comes in quite early. A guy appears, there's a sort of dramatic, jealous lover moment. The reason that happens, the reason we have that character, his name is Lucien, that is a trope that we have in culture and in these sorts of stories. The novel that is in the DNA of the Belladonna invitation is The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas -Phew, the son of Alexandre Dumas -Phew, who wrote The Three Musketeers and so on. His son wrote a novel, The Lady of the Camellias, which was a big hit at the time. It was adapted for stage and it later turned into the opera. Verdi adapted the story for his opera, La Traviata, and that's where Moulin Rouge gets its plot from. Although The Lady of the Camellias isn't so well known now, it has quite an interesting cultural footprint. Some of the initial skeleton of this Belladonna character and the lover who comes in and how she deals with that is a trope that I was looking to try to rework in a new way. He has his big, dramatic, jealous moment and she deals with that in a way that she doesn't deal with it in the text that I was just referring to. What I wanted was to have the man arise, but the emphasis isn't really on how she navigates that romantic or that pseudo -romantic world, but how she navigates the pressures that she's under and how that impacts on her relationship with Flora, or F, the name of the apprentice that she takes on who's watching all this happen. The relationship with the lover and how that sort of goes and how that ends up is interesting for me because of how it impacts on the central relationship between the two women. I do want to talk about Belladonna a little bit more in a bit because I do feel like there's a Rebecca vibe to her. She's on every page, but I don't feel like we ever really can say that we know who she really is. However, you mentioned F or Flora and I was so intrigued by these two names that she's sometimes Flora and she's sometimes F. There's a mask in there too. Do you have to have a mask to enter this constructed world? Who is Flora? Yeah, it's very interesting. In a way, I tried to make it quite an intimate novel. In a way, although she's F or Flora and there are things we don't know about this mysterious figure, she's also the perspective character of the book and we're sort of under her skin quite literally at times. I tried to really bring bodily sensation and feel and intensity of mental into construction her how she's seeing the world. At the same time, she's sometimes F, sometimes Flora. That's not necessarily an explicit puzzle that can be solved. It's more done through feel. There isn't a secret why she's one or the other. It's more how I felt in the writing, which name it felt like she was the best living up to in the time and in the moment. It does change. I suppose it's how she feels, who she feels she is in that moment. If she's expanded to take that kind of Flora name, which Belladonna gives her as well, or is just a letter, just a kind of ghost making things happen. I think in art, particularly in some forms, songwriting for example, or certain types of writing, certain genres, there's quite a lot of value placed on perceived sincerity or honesty, authenticity we might say. I'd argue it's maybe not necessarily about the world of art or celebrity itself that's all about masks, but particularly it's about a psychological perspective on the layers that we tell ourselves. The narratives we tell ourselves and what we tell other people, multiple selves that exist inside of us. I suppose the point is you don't need to be the top of society, La Dame, Belladonna, to have secrets and to have a sense that there are multiple selves within you and who will you show yourself to be at any one moment to other people depending on. F is a thinker, she's a planner. She's kind of a bit of a schemer, although that sounds a little bit Del Boyish. It's much more like, how can I get what I want? What do I need to do? Who do I need to be to these people in order to get from A to B? I suppose that's sort of the psychological territory that we're in, really. I think it's also, F is on the surface, we think they're going to be an entry character for the reader, I suppose. Of course, they're the perspective character, they're the one we identify with, but she's also hiding from the reader a little bit as well. It's an invite, it's to have fun to enter this world where there is mystery, there are characters who know more than what they tell you. I suppose I've just tried to embody that quality as well as depicting it. I wanted that to be something that hopefully is tantalising to the reader in form as well as in content. It is very tantalising and I was intrigued by both characters, but I'm glad that now you've kind of introduced both of these principal women. I wanted to talk a little bit about the power dynamic between them because they come from different classes. Flora is basically a servant and Belladonna is dripping with diamonds. Why set up this particular power dynamic? Class is a particular issue here and the fact that Flora is a servant to someone who stands at the very top of the social ladder. The power dynamic and the basic power struggle between them was the whole reason to write the novel, to be honest. As I mentioned earlier, I alluded to Lady of the Camellias and I had an idea to do a kind of goth, poison -y version of that. We'll call her Belladonna, she'll wear the blackberries in her hair and that all came quite fully formed. It felt like an idea that could potentially make quite a creepy short story. Fine. The jealous lover arrives, she deals with him, the end. I didn't quite write it because somehow there was something missing. There wasn't quite a reason to write it. It didn't feel like I had everything that I needed. There was a point where I was just puzzling over one of those scenes, maybe her and Lucienne or something. I suddenly thought, wait, who's watching this? Who's seeing this happen? Suddenly, it was one of those rare thunderbolt moments. Well, you know how it is artistically. You have a bolt from the blue that's actually a decade in the making. I'm sure I'd already had this idea, probably. The perspective is that Belladonna has a close assistant. She has a close person or someone, a devotee, who idolises her and she watches this. Suddenly, the muscle of the story is the power dynamic, the power struggle between those two. Then the guy coming in is like, you know, that's just part of the job. What does our shift bring us today? Ah, it's a guy. Then the romantic story isn't the focus, but it's the friendship or the test, the tempestuous combination of dependence and subversion between those two women. In a way, making her a servant or a lower class just makes Belladonna's world even more unobtainable because then that's further that you also do it. Whenever you don't, you do. That's also a handy driver to talk about wanting and desire. The notoriety that Belladonna has and the fame she has makes her far more distant. When we first see her, she's literally on the top of the private box in the balcony and F is staring up at her from below. That's one of the first dynamics between them that we see. I don't think it's a spoiler to say F is looking at Belladonna throughout the entire book. I wanted F to set out to achieve something unobtainable. Having her background be from the printing press in that kind of world was a deliberate decision as well because I wanted the Belladonna. She's got a very famous signature. She signs her name with black purple ink. She's associated with fine art, with calligraphy, with, as you say, dripping with diamonds. There's a liquidity to her as well as beauty and jewelry and so on. Whereas F has come from working in a printing press is all about industrial technologies. It's about replication. It's about mechanical reproduction. We're deliberately putting letters to create a specific thing that you need, which is how F goes about navigating the world. In comparison, what she sees Belladonna doing, and of course this is F's perspective, what she sees Belladonna doing is all about glamour and relationship building and beauty and rehearsal and performance and liveness. F is much more thinking in terms of these little metal blocks.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/04/23
"So here's the strange thing, Mike, I'm looking for songs, especially at the tail end of this week that speak to fighting and toughness and etc. And the top three or four I'm finding are done by millennial women. Maybe that's a state, yes, Kelly Clarkson yesterday, right? What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Here's Rachel Platten. This is from the Greatest Showman, right? No, no, that's no, it does sound like... This Is Me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's the one I'm thinking of. Oh, maybe another songwriter lawsuit. I'm the only person in America who liked The Greatest Showman. No, no, no, I went to Greatest Showman and I thought, this is going to be a great kind of a biopic, or as you sometimes call it, a biopic, I'm sorry, about P .T. Barnum, right? Yeah, Hugh Jackman is in it. The preview was so deceptive, it shows him talking to a dwarf and talking to another circus person and I thought, this is great, what a fascinating figure. And I go and it's like Les Mis under the big top, it's just a hardcore musical. I turned to Lisa and I said, what, am I Mike sitting here? My Denise used to say that, she used to say it all the time, we'd go to a show and she'd suffer through it and she'd say, why do they have to sing everything they say? I'm going to the grocery store. Why? Just talk it, you know? And I say, honey, you're not understanding the genre of the American musical theater, which I will be enjoying tonight. I'm in New York today, I just went across the street, I just risked my life to go across the street to the Whole Foods to get a thing of eye drops because this stupid right eye, I got this little right eye infection that will not go away and I look like, you know, and so, you know, by the way, I blame, I absolutely blame Jack Smith and Joe Biden for my eye infection. Why not? I think the stress of the week has put me under, I think the trauma of watching President Trump, the rain has done this to me, but anyway, I go across the street and it's, you know, it's funny, we talk a lot about the condition of New York and this is kind of a snapshot of big city America. I mean, man, it's rough here. Not only the homeless people, the illegals in the Times Square area, which I happen to be staying this week, they're everywhere. It's like men, women, children, they've all set up encampments outside these shelters and hotels that... I've seen this week. It's unbelievable, Marc. I mean, last night I was walking down 44th Street, there were hundreds and hundreds of them and, you know, you look at them, these poor little kids, you know, they're fresh faced and they're innocent. They didn't do anything wrong. It's a human tragedy. Guess what? It is a human tragedy because when you brag that you're a sanctuary city, well, guess what? Welcome them in, but golly, I'm just thinking of, and again, back to New York, so tonight I'm going to see Back to the Future. I mean, it is... I know, I know, but I saw... ...me giving the back of my hand to the genre, but it's just, does it tend to work out well when some Broadway scriptwriter takes a venerable movie or a venerable TV show or a venerable anything and says, hey, let's turn this into a musical, does it tend to work well? Not usually. Now, there is one, though, that's a big hit, Moulin Rouge. That was based really on the movie, the Nicole Kidman movie. Movies I can see because a movie and a stage play have a certain, you know, umbilical... Well, back to the future is a movie.

Because i think they're like the number one stream song number on spotify and on the billboard. Whatever whatever but i listened to their new song butter and wouldn't you know. I am obsessed with the song. It is so fucking good. So i need a rundown and who better to go to than kate. I mean i need to know what other songs i should be listening to. I need a general synopsis of bt s and each of the members. Because they're all like from what from the music video. I saw butter. They're all very charismatic. They're all singers. They're all dancers. they're all cute. Which you know. I mean not every boy brand you know it's like who was the fan of joy towns on it. It's just kinda surprising because what seven of them. They're seven amelia. I've been waiting my whole life for this moment to tell you we've done fifty seven and a half minutes on this podcast. This is a special challenge for to keep this brief. And i knew this was coming and so i'm going to try to keep it brief. I'm not going to give you the whole lowdown. Here's what i'm gonna do. I got a text from danny fits two weeks ago and he said we've been in a k. Bbq place for two and a half hours that we've watched so many music videos in a row where obsessed and what he asked me was. I want you to tell me which member i am which i saw a great question. I was like this is a great personality test. Let me think and so inspired by that. I thought maybe i would do what we do. A lot on this podcast and match the teatime member to give you seven gonna get to all of them. But i'm really briefly. Just because i feel like you need. You just need something to hook you. you know. it's not enough to be like the person with gallo hair is so and so right now. Maybe it'll be like james mcevoy updates like bcs member update right right. Sorry is to tell you very briefly which be where you are and then i can just direct you to more information. Try to keep this brief and really gonna try. But i know everything about them with okay so i want. I want to apologize to junk. Tae-young just not gonna make the cut for today again. There are seven of them. And i want to of them so i don't leave anyone out the fans get very upset when you leave someone out on john. My favorite so no shade to him. It's fine so first of all. I told danny that he is our em and i think i also am r. m. is the stage name for bt ss leader. Israel names nam june. And i think danny and i are the same member. Because we're both like just kind of nerdy i think were both kind of endearing nerds closet nerds if you will as our am is. He's the one you've probably seen like interviews. He speaks english. He's wanting to talk english from friends and so he is kind of the voice of the group when they're in america funny He also writes a lot of their songs. And danny and i both right for the site. So that's who i assigned as our permit issued member of bts as for teatime. Start with kaya. I would say kaya as most like gin who is the oldest member of bt s kai is the youngest member of times that doesn't match however i think once you get into bcs you realize that he's sort of vitals like the offstage dynamic. He does a lot of like the moral support. Oh he's kind of the mom of the group is very responsible is good with people kinda holds things down. I liked it quite a showy But i think the real ones now that like gin is like very important to the group. Sent me a heart in the chat. Okay i thought both those in a million. I think we're top soon. As i told myself to do this. I was like this is actually quite difficult. That's funny but i'm committed. I'm inside. Liz is like jimin. Who is one of the vocalists and main dancers and this is a very simple explanation. He has a very distinctive recognizable. Very sweet little voice off. That's pretty self explanatory voice of the wringer podcast network Just like no one has ever listened to beats yes song who knows. Bts and been like well if that's demand or not because his voice was just very recognizable very popular and he's also very sweet organizing zaveri very harbor so okay and that amelia was the hardest so you get to members as you can see ya. The first member is suga who is members of the rap. Line start out as a hip hop group and has recently kind of transition to pop. That's interesting yeah So his real name is and he's kind of a fan favorite. He looks very sweet. Very cute i think is the shortest member but once you get into his music you realize he has this sneaky like fuck around and find out attitude So he has a lot of very aggressive solo work..

It really hurts. It's so sad. I don't get it watching sad even mcgregor. Oh gentlemanly makes you wanna die. Very i've only seen it one other time at stuck with me star wars revenge to sit then. He had an economy failed. You energy that. I was like jesus christ this again. I can't. it's so sad my god. That's so he's he's channeling his it. I wanna talk about him later. 'cause he's my mvp but he doesn't really like angry sad in both of those movies where he's like yelling neighboring and then in this movie when he's like yelling teen you're like no don't create her but he's angry with and he's like crying and sad and singing. Yeah and i thought like maybe they could summon a doctor you know. It sounds like this is in like can we know exactly. This is one thousand nine hundred. Okay we have a jeweled elephant that people are having sex in community dr. Let's sit here. Jesus is all right so we do. What the best. And the worst told a load off each of the best. And we'll get into this and the lighting more specifically but the soundtrack is still. I mean if you've seen this movie. I it's it's difficult to choose a favorite. We're gonna try later but the soundtrack is just really really great. The songs hold up the scenes. Hold up just really great stuff. H the worst and this is a big one. I think this is probably the biggest low light of the movie. I was watching this on amazon. And they do when they pull up the character names on the side. And i had never really looked into this before but i was. I was looking at the character names and listen over the top theatrical thing. I don't expect them to name. Prostitute number. Two like janine. You don't i mean like. I expect someone to be like todd. Like i know that they have the actual aims. What i didn't need was the really gross like syria typing. That happens with the character. Names some of these prostitutes. I guess be calling them. Some of these sex workers in the brothel here some of the names arabia china doll. Shoko lot is played by dobie up. Ray who has like a really big role like he came in from being raped by the duke. Give him a name. Yeah yeah right. Yeah i know that like it goes sort of into the brothel stereotyping back in the day. Like that was how they did it. But i'm like we didn't have this beyond twenty years ago so that was a big downside and then sort of along with that. They did this sort of indian in the musical as their big production. There's like a lot of ethnic stereotyping there as well. That just comes off really gross in bad and just did not as well so just name your characters. It's not that hard. Yeah and then also age the worst they did a new version on broadway recently. A couple of years ago. Starring errands fate and karen olivo and i was really excited for it. I know juliette limit went to see it. We've talked about it link but what they did was updated the songs that are in the medleys so instead of elephant love medley having paul mccartney dolly parton and it does have some of that still instead it has katy perry now they sing fireworks instead of david bowie understand wanting to update it and like making that kind of reference for a new audience. But i don't let that. Like i went to listen to the soundtrack and i was like this isn't what i wanted. God right so that to me was a decision. That didn't age great. Yeah do you want to just keep rolling your next on the list. I will keep rolling. Miami gregor he first of all great singing voice we as a society and mcgregor and more musicals because i think he has some parts and some of these songs are written really well to sort of complement. His voice like he has some moments in like l. Tango roxanne some other ones and your song and come. What may where he disliked. Harmony's really kinda complement his voice. Even if he's like not a singer singer and he just he looks. Great is like peak you and mcgregor heartthrob very romantic extremely in love there. Just some scenes where they cut to him and like singing at nicole kidman and she's not even looking at him and i'm like oh man i'm glad right in the heart yet. Yeah just he just really makes movie. I think if i could give we just double up i would probably pick him to. He probably is like my mvp. But i do have to give some not some credit a lot of credit to nicole. Kidman her all she also like. I was reading some trivia about this movie and she went through a couple of physical injuries it because it was very is very taxing in every way it appeared. I imagine how exhausting it was for her to do this day. In day out every emotion she had to do two hundred percent so her as mvp. Yes amelia. who's your pick. Yeah i mean. I agree with both of you guys. I would say you know what just going to give it to baas lerman. What a what a guy he has. He's always done. These really stylized Sometimes are musicals. Sometimes they're not just really but very like and colorful and fun movies. And i think sometimes you know people make fun of him for because we don't need this but honestly i've never not had fun watching so we should do his romeo and juliet some time of that movie. There's a lot there really. Yeah i would also do australia okay. I didn't hate that movie australia. It's gonna take care right. Yeah all right. Let's see the lightning round before we wrap up is is movie too weird. The right amount of weird or not. Weird enough amelia. I'd say right amount. I agree i get works. Best side character. Kate for me. It's a tie between the singing moon. Who sings backup on several songs like an opera singer. Shirt you may okay and is it kylie minogue so he pronouncing it. Yeah okay. i doubted myself. She plays the green absent ferry so when they like drink absent she appears. And it's like. I'm the green fairy which is just inspired casting. I'm giving it to jim. Brodmann aka professor. He's not. He's a side character breeze a very large this movie. And he's also game of thrones. I was just like to see him. Jim broadbent brings it every time a single project. He's in where you're like. Why jim broadbent. He's the opposite david spade. Like you always want. Jim broadbent idea. You felt so strongly about rocky. I said that too. Guess movie amelia. Who's your favorite character. You know i agree. I love the random kylie minogue. Also now the human mention the moon the moon reminds me of is. Have you ever seen. I'm not that i like okay. Just forget the balloon in the like the bear in the big blue house. It's very similar. Moans right yeah to say well you know. What is the worst song. Kate the worst song. I mean bar none. There's no competition is like a virgin. The madonna song. You all know and love it. But it's performed by jim broadbent and the duke. Who is so creepy. I and basically they're like talking about how the teen is going to come to the duke..

But we have this fun little thing to talk about todd that has to do a streaming because spotify released this new campaign this week called. Only you and the whole gist is like only you. Listen like x y and z or love this artisan that artists artisan this other thing. So it's you know you. The spotify listener is a unique person and they kind of compile all this really fun data. I personally live for this stuff even though i i don't know why but i always have so much clicking through it what did you guys think about getting this email and there's an app. I was really excited about it. I love spotify wrapped. The first of all. I want to say we're not being asked to talk about this. We are like legitimately really embarrassing. Wanted to talk about it. So people been posting it till like brace social media thing but yeah i like the stuff too. I was disappointed by mind now. Did you guys do no no. It was so embarrassing. Irene know my music tastes embarrassing. I don't need it like flashed on fine for me. Yeah a little bit of a drag. Like i mean spotify. Wrap this great like it's also embarrassing. But there was something about this specific one that was specifically embarrassing for my unique artists pair. It was like only you would play this artists. And then this artist had maggie rogers and fall out boy olga. I don't remember playing why this year. But apparently i did. Right after maggie. Rogers yeah mine is you would play ciza after the doors and i can't be the only one that feels like okay.

Because that's not a lot. But i have to It's not watching them. But a lot of this stuff only recognize. If i'm being honest about half the songs so like i give up pretty quick. There are some things like you know. Like mama mia was like. Oh yeah i know but like this is the i you know who i had. No i'd never heard until. I heard the song unit nat king cole's nature boy. So right there's a bunch of here there's a there's a couple of classic rock and i mean the he'd like there's like fifty different songs in that love montage where like. She's trying to argue that like she's just as a strictly business type of girl and he's like but what about love. They must pull like the chorus lines from fifty different songs ban. The ham one point. It's in this isn't do. Maybe the most thing in the entire movie is gonna get you in mcgregor to sing a line of winnie. Houston's fuck what is the name of that song blanking. I will always love you. The bodyguard one game. They try and get him to do a. We switch. Bring us this morning we did. Yeah the ones. What the hell can you any names They pull it off reasonably well but it's not waiting. Houston come on. There's you mentioned about this. This movie being very funny. It's funny in a very kind of three stooges almost slapstick. Kind of way. Where it's like. It's all about mistaken identity that then just keeps compounding and compounding and that mistaken identity led to this awkward situation that it's it's not like really sophisticated verbal wordplay or things like it's it's more of just like very broad situational humor but like he there's no he has. There's no shame this movie hasn't any of like it's essentially awesome you know. What a lot of the comedies. Like austin powers Like holding grapefruits in front of his dick kind of style stuff Lake you know guy spying on set with telescope thinking you see in one thing and seeing something else and beans zach kind of laughs. But they. I don't know. I think they're really funny. Especially since they are like nicole kidman goes for fucking broke on. This sheet says christ that elephants seen man. She's doing her like You know trilling in yipping like a little fox and it's like.

"You still feel pretty good at the end even though it is a tragedy. But you know it's it's it's good. I recommend watching even if you're not a fan of musicals because it is it is a lot of fun. Yeah i mean that's where it goes from just being like romantic conventional sense to like romantic in the anna anna green gable since like you know the tragedy at the end makes else more poignant and the life and death fight for something so temporary an ephemeral lake makes it that much more poignant. It is interesting because like i you know. I'm a lot older that i watched this movie and Like i got a little bit different of lessons And a lot of things a lot. Different things i guess jumped out at me from the screen. But but yeah i want to ask you. This is just a good time. This movie is a fucking straight party like the first two thirds of this film is just got his foot. Pedal doesn't stop and even when it gets depressing at the end is still goes out with such a finale that and he pulls out all the stops in the in in in all the tricks in the book because the editor. This film is edited to within an inch of its life. Almost a extent of parody. I think like like the a big reveal. I don't want to spoil the movie but there's a big big reveal about a secret performance at one point in the film and i think there was seventeen edits in like a second and a half as i. What but it's like that kind of kinetic frantic pace that it's like shock move a music video and the things over two hours long. Yeah they're able to capture like the feeling of being drunk in a dance hall where there is music and lights and dancing girls in a crowd like they're able to capture that in film and it really works. It looks like the best time to go to the moulin rouge which i just learned researching for this as an actual real place. I thought this was all some kind of fantasy shit. Let me And it kinda looks like it does. It's like if you went to the moulin rouge the red mill at the at the peak of its life on rolling on molly but then he goes in search like absent and then he goes in these ads like magical realism on top of that. We're like literally things are sparkling and shining shimmering and all that kind of stuff. Which like i said i repeat myself. You're rolling. i'm ali alliens beautiful and and you told me. How much did this film cost. Fifty million. I notice twenty years ago but it just goes to show you. You can throw a lot of people that can so close. You can throw a lot of costume and set design at the screen and to a-list stars for forty fifty million dollars and you can see every single dollar of it like it's just and again i. The thing that i kept on it kept on. Gobsmacked is when i was looking at pictures of the old moulin rouge and even in its current incarnation and like how much Yeah that's exactly what it looked like like all the the big the big elephants room which i guess wasn't opium exclusive like vip opium den extravagant gardens. They had in the bag. All that shit was was real at least until the place burnt down in like the early twentieth century and they rebuilt it without the opium dens without the elephants shocking without the gardens. Like all that stuff is has been lost but hey you can still go see Pretty young creatures of the night dancing for your pleasure Well i don't know now cova..
Moulin Rouge! The Musical to Open in Melbourne

One Do I as I was part of the original production of rent in Sydney. Here with me, Tim. Margie. Okay. To my medic, Relleno A rock, Obara and Jared Draper. Welcome you fellas to the show. Thank you. Thank you. Yeah. Now, congratulations to you all forgetting your rolls. This is very exciting. Tell us about the audition process because the one for rent way back in the nineties was. It was a bit of a cattle call and seriously at Kinsella's in Oxford Street, the line just went rule the way down. Um, the end on bond. I didn't have to wait in the cattle cool to just go past everyone, but I still had to audition regardless of what my credentials were. Tell us about. Your own audition process. Was it grueling? And is it growing? You've got the longest you've been out of the longest. Yes, the tomorrows. Musical audition process was grueling because it was different. When I started auditioning, I think most of my auditions were on zoom. That was very kind of confronting to me. Especially being a musical audition, where you really want to be in the room and show you your physicality and work off another kind of human being. Um, So that was it was it was grueling, and it was long and it was. It was quite a few callbacks on Ben.

I feel like it was a week or saukville. If i'm but i do get. I do get the message behind it and i think it's really pretty but i have a question about this. This one woman in the movie who confused me so much. I don't know if i miss something. But this random lady places herself as a villain in the film in the middle of it when the duke is sitting and watching team perform she whispers in his ear and basically the whole plot of the film. Why where did she call you like. Why would she like the penniless writer. Oops i mean player. She just shows up. She drops a buyer. Leaney's fairly names nina. I didn't know that i not get that. I miss something that like. What is he just a single volley if you really wanna make your point Later in the film she helps them not die right. She went to his pass. No here's what i think. It is marcus you have not been. You're not a stage performer. The people on that stage for a musical theater drama club. When we're doing that play and we're all friends right. We all out at the same school but we all have bitter rivalries because that person got our part at that person. Did this think about high school. Musical right thing about fucking sharpei and gabriella and troy in like fuck in ryan although that's really how it is in high school markets. Imagine what it's like in a professional setting. I have so many people that are my friends in the acting sphere. That would stab me in the back of. I always god jesus. It's like start smelling blood in the water. That's exactly what it is. Here's the thing these people are also like. They're also sex workers so there's also another added thing on top. That's just like this dichotomy. Yeah she's the number one right like she's getting the best money in the best attention means like i can dance better than her. She probably thinks she can sing better than her. She probably thinks she's prettier than her. She's like why the fuck team get everything. Yeah that's totally why. I assumed that was why but yeah but from a film is endpoint. It is comical nowhere. Bad from a writing standpoint. I think they've made the duke too stupid and they're like fuck. How are we going to reveal this. Oh just someone's jealously they show up and they're going to be johnson reveal it. I totally get that. But honestly the findings characters is one where his like stupidity of it all like totally like just reinforces his like i forget. What the psychology term. But it's like ineffective forever infant fitness syndrome. Like what what is it. You know what. I'm saying like boy child man syndrome alvin syndrome.

And he you gabbert love and then she's like okay but love and that like back and forth like a really sold me this time watching even now as an adult. It's charming and their chemistry is great. Like the play off of each other very well since you're actors and they're both like very talented at acting and their prime. It's weird to watch a movie at reminds you that acting is like a job or that. It's hard or if it's like it's like you have to like it. Takes a good actor to meld into the character and portrays someone different onscreen. You know like not no fence against iraq. I love the rock. The rock is always the rock in every movie. I think i think also watching the now. I i realized this is style of acting. That's out now. That i mean it's it's good enough. Thank you ran for one four. She it'd be love you and we love everything you do your number one advantage that we yeah nine fourteen two was. That's up presidential. Time's up your title. So much acting now is just like i feel like it just feels like standing around right. Yeah but they're acting but it doesn't feel like campy feels like real like they're being emotional feels like they don't let people be emotional anymore the way they are in this movie and everything else is so high in that the room they have to play wider. Right it's bigger. They have more of a breath. The show emotions because of randy does the movie is and it really shows especially during the scene but also through all of the scenes during all musical numbers. All their lovemaking scenes. Everything i think. How crazy and serve kooky silly. This is like that a that works for musical theater. That is kind of the body of people involved in musical theater. You can only get it musical theater. Yeah you can only really silly and also serious in the same film like it's it's hard to hard thing to pull off. Not a lot of directors can pull it off by musical theater. It's something that's common now. I just just a little aside. I just i just always have to remind you and everybody about how little i know eh knew about music. So your song. I didn't know was an ellen. John song for like fifteen years. All the songs in elephant love medley. I still don't know where all of them were so much. And here's the thing the only original song here's come. What may everything else was. Pulled from somewhere else something else other. Kind of maelstrom combination. Which is so cool. By the way. I love to hear your thoughts on that. But i didn't like i didn't know nirvana was in this movie to like seventy eight and i was like whoa. That's nirvana i heard it for moulin. Rouge that's hilarious. But what do you think about a musical. A modern musical taking like it happens more now because now we've seen glee at like glee smashed. All these things wouldn't exist. Yeah but it's funny because jukebox musicals are totally thing now right like so many people i've seen so many of them and it's much but yes d'amato so much whether or not you like music whether you like the person creating so to pull from pop music and it's hard to pick a good repertoire of songs but lucky enough where they're not limited by like one artist..

And then i moved back the city when i was eighteen but it was always something that i was really drawn to and i always wanted to do and makeup. It didn't really occur to me as sort of a career until later on although definitely growing up for me it was a personal source of self expression and experimenting and transformation and i was always really drawn to and interested in aesthetics the wavelengths look and how things are designed and how we express things visually so. When i went to college. I studied theater. It was an experimental theater program. Which was which is really amazing. It kind of drew a lot of different types of artists and young theater makers directors and dancers and performers. And where was this. This was nyu. Oh wonderful. so within their acting department. And i knew at that point that i. I didn't want to be an actor but i i wanted to do storytelling and i wanted to make theater. And one of the focuses of that program was making original work and sort of finding your voice and and finding how how you tell stories and how to express express yourself in and for me. At the time i was really interested in mythology and magical realism and i. I wanted sort of create. These really Heightened realistic worlds and i found the faces of my sort of co students to be very limiting eight.

Los Angeles's Lucas Museum acquires major archive of African American cinema
"The Lucas Museum. Am hasn't yet opened. Its doors but the narrative art space just announced a major acquisition an extensive archive of Black American cinema movie. Posters and film stills stills called separate cinema. The Lucas Museum is currently under construction at Exposition Park near downtown. La It's scheduled to open in late twenty twenty anyone. The museum's film curator is Ryan Linkov Ryan. Welcome to the frame. Thank you for having me. The collection is called separate cinema. Can you explain lane. What's behind the name and how it defines what is included in the archive? We're actually just having this conversation with the founder of the Archive John. Kish the name. It comes out of a specific historical moment specifically the first half of the twentieth century. The Twenties Thirties and forties in particular which saw the proliferation of a film industry really defined around African American filmmakers producers directors actors really kind of films made four and by an African American audience and in a way those existed outside of the mainstream methods of making movies and the distribution channels. So they really were in some weighs a separate track Film production distribution and consumption. For that reason I think it's a way of kind of identifying the ways in which a film home industry kind of developed for particular market that is in some ways obviously always entwined in broader mainstream history but also has its own kind of internal integrity that said the materials in the collection are both made by black filmmakers for black audiences and obviously films produced by the mainstream mainstream majority white film. Production Industry for broader. Is this as well. I WANNA play a clip from a film from nineteen. Forty three is called a cabinet in the sky. As it's hard. Lena Horne Ethel waters and Eddie Anderson. Interestingly it was directed by Vincente Minnelli who did G G in American in Paris. But listen to this good example of what you're talking about in terms MM separate cinema. It's a scene from a cabin in the sky. Nail Right Reverend. When you call on the Senate confessed he better sign me the rest of the evening or oh? You're not that bad Joseph so when you think about this period in film history why is this period so important and understanding how we got where we are. Today I would say it's really in some ways. Essential to understand understand the ways in which especially the Hollywood studio system both developed a culture of representing African Americans that was on the one hand quite pernicious in the way that it represented very entrenched Stereotypes of the African American experience and on the other there were attempts such as cabin in the sky to produce films homes that were at least making an attempt to speak and more sensitive and thoughtful ways to African American audience by featuring major iconic figures within the African American community and also figures who had a broader kind of popular appeal. And this kind of push pull this tension between trying to both represent the African American experience and also kind of in some ways exploiting a capitalizing on particular stereotypes. I think are really kind of something that will continue tend to live with and continues to play itself out in certain ways and I think understanding this broader history especially that kind of early days the first half of the twentieth century when the entire film industry in some ways was most thoroughly coming into shape. I think really helps us understand and explain where we are at the present moment. We're talking with Ryan Linkov Film Curator Raider for the Lucas Museum. To ask you about the collection itself. There are thousands of items in it. What was John Kish up to? And how did he. He assembled all of these things. Well so he's been collecting release since I believe the nineteen seventies and acquiring this collection piece by piece through a variety of different outlets through auctions. Private collections need did develop. What is by most measures the most impressive and comprehensive archive of material related to African American cinema Really with the intent of creating an archive that was available for both scholarly early research and also public programming and exhibitions to really highlight celebrate explore and examine the broader history of African American cinema across the twentieth century. And into the twenty I and he continues to be in conversations with us as new things come auction and that kind of thing so we really want to continue that legacy and also make it in the same ways as accessible for the research and for their conceptualization of the history of African American cinema. I WANNA play a clip from another movie. That is a seminal example of black black cinema. This is one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. Do the right thing in this scene. We're going to hear from a character named Radio Raheem who played by. Bill is always always fighting. The other hand you left hand is kicking much. I mean it looks like the right hand. Love is finished but hold on stop depressed. Rest of the writing is coming back. He's got the best roads now. Strike the devastating right. Oh Hey Kale. I love the scene and it made me wonder about how much film presentation and screenings will. We'll be part of what this collection is going to be about. Are People going to be able to see movies. Are you do screenings and conversations around those films so some programming will be he and major part of the museum's mission going forward. We will have to state of the art theater for film programming and It's great that you played a clip from do the right thing because we are actually organizing a film program. In February February eighth that will feature do the right thing As well as the Whiz we actually the collaboration aberration with Los Angeles County Museum of art and this is really our first attempt at putting together a film program. I think you're scheduled to open in late. Twenty twenty one. We know uh-huh maybe the Academy Museum hasn't quite met its deadlines. Are you pretty hopeful that we will have a museum by the end of next year. We are on schedule to to be substantially complete with construction by the end of twenty twenty. One we haven't announced an actual opening day for the public But everything's moving ahead Ryan Linkov is filmed curator.

'No Room For The Modest Hit Anymore': Broadway Prepares For Summer Closings
"Broadway is coming off a record season in terms of attendance and box office receipts with twenty nine shows to choose from right now. Five of those shows though including some big budget disappointments agents are going to close over the next two weekends jeff london explains broadway attendance was up fourteen percent between twenty eighteen twenty nineteen generating one one point eight three billion dollars in ticket sales. It's been a great year for broadway and that's true if you're one of the producers of a blockbuster show but not everyone is i've been invited to the party says jeremy gerard who's been covering broadway as a reporter and critic for over three decades when he tallied up the eleven shows that opened in close this season though shows accounted for something like one hundred and forty million dollars in investment and that's a huge number at a time time when we're seeing these blockbuster shells and more reports of higher and higher box office grosses that tells me that we're in trouble that there's no room for the modest hit more several shows always close right after the tony awards if their box offices soft and they haven't won any any tony's and that happened with three shows this year charlotte saint martin president of the broadway league the organization that represents producers in theater owners. She says every summer shows close. We have a history of summer closings that goes back forever in two thousand fourteen. There was six in two thousand twelve. There was it's eight but this year there are more and what's unusual is that instead of hanging onto labor day to cash in on tourist dollars. Five musicals are closing in the next two weekends king kong which bumped up the losses significantly because it cost a staggering thirty six point five million dollars the prom tom pretty woman the share show and be more chill. Jerry gehring is a lead producer of that show. Who's cast album enjoyed more than two hundred million streams before a sold out run off broadway last summer but it never found real traction on broadway. It was a lot of factors like a lot of shows. We didn't get the tony love. We didn't get a straight across. Critical response. Broadway is incredibly expensive and you have to fill a lot of seats to to stem the losses. The producers decided to close in mid august because a lot of its target audience teams. Go back to school now before labor day gearing. Thanks says there are hoping to make back some of the nine million dollars they lost with a tour and licensing the broadway league's charlotte saint martin points out that most shows lose money four out of five shows don't recoup some don't lose all but don't recoup and yes. A lot of people lost a lot of money. There's no question that shows cost more in if they don't recoup. There's more money being lost but why so many this summer new york times critic ben brantley has a theory theory. All the shows were talking about the musicals at least including the unfortunate king kong. Just aren't that good so perhaps we're talking about discernment for wants what's journalist jeremy gerard has another theory. There are five shows lined up for every fever that becomes available and it's a seller's market. It's a market for vertu landlords and they want the big hits in there so i believe that they're putting a lot of pressure on producers of shows that are under performing to cut bait as is quickly as possible to get potential new hit him for example after kinky boots closed this spring moulin rouge moved right into the same theater and it's a smash hit for n._p._r.

BrainStuff Classics: Why Do We Fart?
"In two thousand and four in a tiny town. A young woman named Rebecca Gould was brutally murdered nearly fifteen years later her killer is still on the loose. It's just really surreal walking around. Don't mention so much. Guys out there yell. I'm Katherine towns, and this is Helen gone catch new episodes by subscribing at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff. I'm Lauren Volvo bomb, and I've got another classic episode for you today in it. Our former host Christian Sager answers, a basic yet nonetheless burning question, why do we fart? Rain stuff. It's Christian Sager. So in the late eighteen hundreds there is this French guy and his name was lapel Mon, and he was one of the stars of Moulin Rouge, people would come from far and wide just to watch this guy fart. Yeah. To watch him fart, lapenne them on you see was a professional flatulence, which as it turns out is still sort of thing. And certainly it's a dream job for some. But if you want to move out of the ranks of amateur windbreakers, an into those stinking hallowed halls of the professionally flatulent, you will need to know if thing or two about farts, like what are they why do they happen? And why do they smell so bad? Well, first things first everyone farts every single person. Yes. You to listening to this. You do to to not far would be medically fascinating and probably dangerous on average. Most people are passing about one. Leader of gas a day spread out over thirteen to wait for it. Twenty one incidents. That's Twenty-one separate times in one day, the composition of a fart varies widely. But usually what we're smelling is something that's mostly nitrogen along with oxygen carbon dioxide and even methane. This gas itself comes from several sources the air you swallow gas that enters your intestines from your bloodstream and so on but about seventy five percent of your farts are created in your lower intestine. And unfortunately, not by you see the bacteria living inside you right now, they comprise a micro Buyum all of their own. And when we say, it's intricate. We mean it so intricate that David Attenborough could make a documentary about it these bacteria form this thriving empire with billions of tiny separate organisms living inside their host. And that's you. They're living with you. And symbiosis. Now flatulence occurs when food passes through your stomach and small intestine without fully breaking down. So what does this mean, this means that the food hits the large intestine in an undyed jested state? So for example, let's look at lactose which is present in dairy products like milk and cheese, if you're lactose intolerant than you lack the enzyme that breaks lactose into sugar molecules for the bloodstream without this lactose just breezes through your stomach and small intestine into your large intestine where it becomes the special of the day for billions of Hungary bacteria, those guys love lactose. And if you're not going to digest it they will as they digest this lactose, they emit a number of gases, including methane, hydrogen carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, which is responsible for the unpleasant, aroma. This process is similar to how yeast produces carbon dioxide to. Leaven bread. And speaking of food. It's true that some foods do produce more flatulence primarily because they contain more indigestible carbohydrates. I'm looking at you beans, nutrient dense, vegetables and fiber, rich foods all have a reputation for nibbling flatulence, that's not necessarily a bad thing. See a scientists learn more about the relationship between diet health and a person's microbiome they're discovering that these flatulent foods may encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut when they're producing that next embarrassing puff of gas. They're also making molecules to protect your intestinal lining and prevent infections. So remember the next time you're silent crime accidentally ends up sounding like stuttering, trumpet, your intestinal bacteria are the real culprits. They are the ones actually farting. And and look I want to emphasize this. They are farting inside of you. You and then you fart their farts out. Are we clear on that part, which leads us to the bigger question of the day? Who are we fighting inside? Episode was written by Ben Bullen and produced by Tyler clang to hear more weird and funny true stories from Ben check out his show ridiculous history.
