R Dot com So I know as a comic book efficient Otto Arlen, you and your brother were not at all pleased with Adam West's sort of Ernest deadpan style this camp version, But I want to talk a little bit about the villains because I thought the casting, that's what really I loved so much about Batman was Frank or Shins, and Burgess, MEREDITH and Cesar Romero. But let's talk about Frank Portions. Riddler Now was that not based on that cackle was that was that based on Richard Widmark character in Kiss of Death. Yes. 1947 film noir. He plays this hit, man like Crazy. Evil Hit man, Tommy Udo. Even the name you D Oh! Tommy Udo. And the classic scene, which I showed in my webinar. Is when he's got to rub out a lady in a wheelchair. And he ties her to the wheelchair and throws it down the stairs and the way the director films it. I mean, if you've seen that scene That is rich. And that was Richard Widmark debut role in film, I believe And so you know, you later would come to play heroic roles, but he started out his career as this crazy evil hitman based on that one scene alone. So according to gorging himself, he said when he went to interpret the Riddler And the Riddler also laughed that he based it on Udo on Richard Widmark performance. And if you watch one, and then watch the other, you'll totally Here. Right, so I got it to work. Gorse is performance. First of all. We knew about Frank or Shin Because You know the night The Beatles debuted on AIDS on it, Sullivan, which is the anniversary a couple days ago that 12 1960 February 9 64. Yeah. Well, there were some other guests on the show that night. One of them was Frank or Shin, who at the time Woz known as Hollywood's greatest celebrity impressionist, and he did a routine on the same night. Beatles, Ronit Sullivan, in which he talks about how all the Hollywood movie stars or out of gathering at the convention or something, and he goes to his interpretations. His versions of Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas are immortal. There were classic. So then when you know they show company try and we saw that it was frank portions, Wikler. In other words, he wasn't a nobody. Right, Right. How great a talent he was. So what was a tremendous talent? Riddler was Everything about it. His physicality the way he moved. I mean, it is such an immortal impression. And it really woz. The template for really all I mean, even Cesar Romero. Joker is riffing off of abortions. Riddler. I mean Gore Shin's Riddler comes before the Joker e. I mean, he's the first Batman villain. And to me. His version of the Riddler. Is as a mortal, whether it's stage or screen or big screen or small screen. It's an immortal villain in 20 century. Narrative Film History period. I gotta I gotta share a quick frank Ocean story. So in 1996 on producing a television show that ran across Canada, and it was it was like a kid in the candy store because I could book guests that I any guests that I wanted, and I grew up watching Batman. Of course. So we were Hogan's heroes. I brought Warner Verner Klemperer up. I brought Grandpa Al Lewis on the show. And so I wanted to get frank portion on and so he we flew him up. And I picked him up at the airport. And of course he's change. Smoking An e at the time I I think he was in Pennsylvania. If I'm not mistaken. He wasn't in Hollywood anymore. He wasn't in California. I believe I believe he flew in from Pennsylvania. So he he just kind of, you know, very famous individual Who was I was picking up the airport. He really didn't have much to say him. He was just sitting there in the back seat chain smoking cigarettes, and he had he had one of these hand held. This is in the early, not a mid nineties rather like a handheld. Stock ticker, and he was very busy checking his his eyes an investment anyway. So we did the show. He He was. He was terrific, though he did. He was terrific on the show. He did his Kirk Douglas in his Burt Lancaster and all of his impressions. He talked about Batman. Very gracious, anyway, after the show he didn't want to go back to the hotel. He wanted to go out with me and the host. And so he just He jumps in the car with us. My host was driving. He had this old beat up station wagon with his hockey equipment in the back, and on the way to where we were going. We're going to a bar way. We're getting low on gas, so we pull into a gas station and Frank Gore, Shin says. You guys go in and pay and I'll pump the gas. So he's there pumping the gas and we walk into to the shop to pay for the gas and pick up some other. What bottled water as a young man behind the counter a recent I'm guessing a recent arrival to Canada. He may have been from India or Pakistan. But this shows you how this serious was the great sort of the great unifier. He looks out the window and he sees Frank or Shin pumping the gas. He does a double take. He looks back at us. He looks back out the window and he says Why is the Riddler pumping your guess area? It was a wonderful moment, so.

I mean, this is in the age when you know later on Leonard Nimoy's would put out an album and William Shatner, you know, would Would have an album. You know these air instruments. Pop culture chats. Keys of, you know, kind of crap stuff like that that was laughed at, But it was done back then. Very earnestly. With that same earnestness that Adam was played Batman with All right, Let's say hi to Jeff isn't he's in Seattle tonight. This morning, Jeff. Welcome to coast. Hey, Great show they. One of my questions is already been answered about the multiple Mr Freezes, But I was just wondering if Arlen knew that maybe they they made the character false face. Yeah, I'd buy. Um, malachite thrown because to face would just be too gross for the audience, you know? I find that hard to believe that a guy with half of a good face and half of what the sort of face was any different from the Joker, wearing full makeup of a clown or or or you know birds is married with a top hat. And a monocle. I mean, are you kidding me? Like the well, it was your scars, though. They were scars on Tuesday. Let's face it, wasn't it? You know, please make different than a Halloween mask. Right? This is what I'm saying, even as kids. Way New to face was cool. I mean again. It makes no sense from our point of view. But you know, everybody trying opinion. All right, Jeff. Thank you for that. There were times though. I mean, most of the violence was pretty. You know, it was comic book violence. It was pretty innocuous. But there were there were some villains actually killed. I think wasn't Jill ST John killed off. In the first episode of the two parter yet the end and the nucular reactor. She falls into it and Adam West, others they immortal line. Who are deluded female or something like that has only Adam West could do it. But you know, other than that, I don't think any other I can't think of any other In a sense, death on Batman. I think that was the opening to part or and you know to me. The Syrians never got better than that opening to barter. Anything you like about Batman. You confined in that opening two parter. That's it for me. All right. Let's go to Andrew in Rochester, New York, Andrew on the wild card line. Welcome to coast. Hey, I do it, Richard. Terrific. Thank you to discuss on Adam West and how my parents shared the early, bad man with me. I enjoyed it, You know, with the second Alec King comedic styles. Most people of my generation would only know Adam last year, like family guy and the awkward Mayor of Co hog. Uh, I personally think Michael Keaton is the best Batman. And in the words of old Buckminster Fuller. Uh, you know that Yeah, I lost it. But either way, Richard Okay, That's very key. Thank you are well, that's through. Yeah, I think he forgot what he was going to say there in the end. Let's say hi quickly. Let's say quickly. Hello to let's see Edwards in New Jersey, east of the Rockies. Edward Good morning. Hey, how you doing? Great show. Thank you. I remember Batman clearly too, when I was a kid, But I just wanted to throw this team because when I say you gotta agree with me, Everybody wanted to be bad man when they were kids when you could get the costume with Boomer, you know, the The whole bed, the whole body back on the whole thing, But I'm just saying very rarely. When I was a kid, nobody wanted to be robbing. I had to be Robin. I had I had I had the yellow towel. And I had to be Robin. Because, my friend we had the whole Batman outfit. Well, I'll tell you something about Robyn Great Show. He sells. He sells dog food. Now he's got a big dog food company. My son gets dog food off, delivered right to the house. Bye. Burt Ward. Yeah, you go food, as God is my judge. I wouldn't make it up. I think it's pretty cool, though, because Uh, when you call up the water, he answers the phone and when I was up my son's house. I thought my son was called my leg and he died the number and sure enough, he answered the phone and that was him. So There's just one of them things, but anyway, listen, great show God bless and be safe. All right, Edward. Thank you for that s O. Just give us the rundown on some upcoming comic book Webinars, Arlen. Well, yeah, thanks for letting me plugged These. It's great, so they're not all complicate Webinars. But next Wednesday, I'll be doing my twilight zone in the age of Corona, where I show how oppression some of these early twilight zone episodes were dealing with themes of solitude and loneliness. And isolation with dialogue that could have been written yesterday. So I love the Twilight Zone. You know, I've spent a lot of my career on it.

Uh, this camp version, But I want to talk a little bit about the villains because I thought the casting, that's what really I loved so much about Batman was the Frank or Shins and Burgess MEREDITH and Cesar Romero. But let's talk about Frank Portions. Riddler Now was that not based on me that cackle was that was that based on Richard Widmark character in Kiss of Death. Yes. 1947 film noir. He plays this hit man like crazy Evil Hit man, Tommy Udo. Even the name you d o Tommy Udo and the classic scene, which I showed in My Webinar is when he's got to rub out a lady in a wheelchair, and he ties her to the wheelchair. And throws it down the stairs and the way the director films it. I mean, if you've seen that scene that is rich, and that was Richard Widmark debut role in film, I believe And so you know, you later would come to play heroic roles, but he started out his career as this crazy evil hitman based on that one scene alone. So according to gorging himself, he said when he went to interpret the Riddler And the Riddler also laugh that he based it on Udo on Richard Widmark performance. And if you watch one, and then watch the other, you'll totally Yeah. Yeah, I got it. Riddler. Gorse is performance. First of all. We knew about Frank or Shin Because You know the night the Beatles debuted on age on It's Sullivan, which is the anniversary a couple days ago that 12 1960 February 9 64. Yeah. Well, there were some other guests on the show that night. One of them was Frank or Shin, who at the time Woz known as Hollywood's greatest celebrity impressionist, and he did a routine on the same night. The Beatles run and Sullivan in which he talks about how all the Hollywood movie stars are out of gathering at a convention or something and he goes to his interpretations. His versions of Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas are immortal. There were classic. So then when you know they show company track, and we saw that it was Frank courses, Riddler. In other words, he wasn't a nobody. Right, Right. How great a talent he was. So what was a tremendous talent? Riddler was everything about it? His physicality the way he moved. I mean, it is such an immortal. Impression. And it really woz the template for really all I mean, even Cesar Romero's Joker is riffing off of abortions. Riddler. I mean Gore Shin's Riddler comes before the Joker e. I mean, he's the first Batman villain. And to me. His version of the Riddler. Is as a mortal, whether it's stage or screen or big screen or small screen..

When you see the video, bruce singing these songs on my Webinar on. September eighteenth because I I give you sort of my greatest hits that fit within a kind of two and a half hour Webinar Tso. Is that He singing mostly with his eyes closed. There's plenty of times in the show. He's directly communicating with the audience, the Bruce we know and love. But most of the delivery of those songs. He knows he's making a live album. Okay. He knows that all the people that wrote him off are listening. He knows he's got his biggest audience of his career. And when you see him sing. On the video. Of these incredible definitive live versions of his songs, not only some of the darkness song but some of the born to run songs. Their definitive live versions in my humble opinion. are from September nineteenth show. Songs like she's the one backstreets. Thunder road. You know it's the first time he revealed how he came up with the title of Thunder Road in a monologue, the song. And many people who love thunder road consider the single greatest live burgeon and it's on the night of September nineteen. Why do you think? Jesse he chose to tell the story of. How he came up with the title of what many fans consider his greatest song even greater than born to run not me I always will put born to run number one, but you know many fans rank it higher. Yet yeah absolutely, and so this is to reset This is a sample of what you're going to get on September Eighteenth at the New York Adventure Club it's NY. Club DOT COM. We will have a leak of the show Friday September eighteenth twelve eastern standard time only ten bucks in. This will get you not only the live Webinar but also access to watch it again or seven a week. So friends have a party that's on a big screen. I'm telling you here's the proclamation. Now here's the showman in me. Because I was there, I'm an eyewitness I can tell you that the bruce show sounded like what it sounds like and it looks like what it looks like even though it's in grainy black and white video that who knows how many generations down is the version I'm showing by the time I a fan got it on the bootleg market. The point is I was there I experienced live and color. But I'm telling you there's something about. The real -ness of the Capitol theatre video and this gets into another aspect. I've seen every. Show. That's been documented Bruce. That's made it on the internet or that we used to see on HSA tapes. I've seen whatever is considered. Oh. Look at this. You know shot from Paris when he did you know working on the Highway I've seen pretty much all the great film. Bruce and you ready for this big surprise. The capitol, theatre grainy black and white video. Is. The most immediate raw document of a guy named Bruce springsteen and here's the highest praise I can give it. If the aliens being down right now in front of me. Jesse. And they said Arlen Schumer. We've heard your big bruce springsteen fan. We've got room in our spaceship. For one example. Of UAE Bruce Springsteen is considered on earth to be so great. What are you going to give him Jesse? What are you going to give them? I'm asking you. You GonNa give them Based on what you've shared. What you've shared me so far hold that song be yeah and this is why I'll hand them the video to the Capitol Theatre, which also has the broadcast quality Jimmy ivine mixed. Sound quality and I'll say here. This is all you need. This, and that's why God bless drawn sheriff documenting what ended up being for the reasons. I. Claim that Bruce I think got together with the band that I'm imagining this of course. Ahead, and goes guys. This is the big one. This is what we've been working on. This is what I sweated that lawsuit this is what? We're here for. This is the biggest night of our careers. This is our biggest audience in terms of pure numbers. And these are all. At wrote me off, they're going to be listening the entire record industry is going to be listening. So I am going to recreate as documentarian in my own words, giving you I the scope of the darkness era. That birth this show, and then I will show a combination of still images and video clips. that. I've called that I consider the greatest hits of that evening. Enough to fill up approximately two and a half to three hours of an evening with Arlen Schumer recreating for you the audience as best as I can. In words and images from somebody who was there you know? Not to switch gears, but there's a famous novel by Ray Bradbury Fahrenheit Four, fifty, one classic future, the soapy novel where all books are banned. And they're burning books in Fahrenheit, four, fifty one is the degree that paper Burns. That's why bradberry gave her the title. So spoiler alert I never read the book but I saw the movie once and you know how the movie ends and I'm assuming the book ends this way. Is that they succeed the bad guys you know the government in burning the books but The little. Bunch, of Jedi Knights. So to speak that, we're keeping the books alive. They trains human beings..

"Go through the endurance tests of two and a half hours. You know anything great like a great movie. Sometimes you wish it wasn't ending. That's what I hope is the feeling as things is that you're not noticing oh I can't believe that was two hours of pass. Trust me. Nobody ever gets bored. At any of. My Presentations I've never seen anybody. Get up and leave because they were bored. I. Think the the hope is with something like this and I've checked out. What's it called again? The New York Adventure Club New York Adventure Club Yeah Yeah. I've checked out the list of things I think the hope is that. It's not just something you're sitting down in front of your computer for you. Call out that time. It's almost as if you're going to that show. You want to sit there and enjoy and okay. This is what I'm doing tonight. So you to carve out that time so? Watching it to our Ken Burns documentary on Jazz, or any one of his hundreds of subjects that he's done, yeah, like I said. You know if you like if you want to see a documentary about the twilight zone in the age of Corona. and. How so many great codes mostly by circling, but every now and then by one of the other great writers. And how they were eerily Prussians. For what we're going through right now. If that doesn't sound like a kind of interesting documentary about the twilight zone That's what I basically present live. In still images in video clips and in my verbal voiceover presentation, it's like alive documentary. Being made you know in the moment And if that interests you great, if that doesn't okay, there's plenty of other things to watch on the Internet. You can watch movies and shows and. Etcetera etcetera now you have not only. Caught your twilight zone presentation over there, but you're doing a bunch of stuff over. There aren't yet and and phantoms often cross. You know I'm a comic book. Fan as well as a twilight zone fine. So, what else have you got going on over there? Well I call the month of July with these webinars I've been doing like Arlen Schumer's greatest fish site. This is my best foot forward. In terms of the SH- mortgage Ford. Pop Culture offerings, even though like I said I made my living as an illustrator work in a complex style, comic books are Kinda my first love well at the same time, I discovered imagery I'll I also discovered the twilight zone. Rock and roll through the bills I also discovered A. You know what I'm saying so music, rock and roll twilight zone comics are my three children in a way, men just in the same way you can't decide which of your children you love the most. I love all three areas of interest, equally and I've done works of art, and I use the word art and quotes whether it's graphic design books lectures projects on each subject matter that had been published and have been enjoyed by audiences of each of those three, so for these webinars in the month of July just did. To Contemplate webinars one around July fourth about the best versions of Captain America. In the comics, the other one I just did two nights ago on black superheroes of the sixties of the silver age of comics, and I chose that concept because of everything. That's happened post George Floyd that you know there were black superheroes created by white artists. To try to give the black audience a hero that they didn't have in the history of comics, and it started in the sixties so I did that two nights ago. So next week is my other great love. The twilight zone ahead of its time on the fifteenth of July the week after that on the twenty second is my Bruce springsteen retrospective of his greatest live performances that have been captured on film or video, and even if you're Bruce Fan I'm going to be showing some very rare hard to find even though everything nowadays is on you to. Trust me the the average Bruce Fan, and I know there's plenty in England. Are GonNa love that one and again. That's my other area of love. I was art director. Bruce was first fan magazine when I was at road on school. Design may dream graphic design so I I'm greatest. Bruce Fan you ever GonNa. Meet don't get me started. But. And then are you ready for this speaking of an English audience, Gone end-july on the twenty nine th. These are all Wednesday nights eight PM Eastern Standard Time. But. Of course, if you buy a ticket and you're in Europe, you can watch it at any time for up to a week afterwards a recording of the live presentation. So literally. When you watch recording of it. It's like it was live for you in the moment. But. The point is is it's going to be the Sean Connery. Bond Canon the first four films which I think are not only his greatest films there degrade is bonds, and they are the Canon, and it's Dr No from Russia with love Goldfinger and Thunderball I don't consider your move twice. Part of the Canon that to me represents the decline of Bonn really, and I've got very specific reasons for that, but and I've got specific reasons for why those four are the cannon, so in another probably two and a half hour Webinar I'm GonNa be showing clips from all four those bond films. Again bracketed with still images that will try to recreate the ear that they debuted and why they're I believe they are the Canon and the very first cinematic imagery I recall as a child, my mother. May she rest in peace took. My brother is a year and a half older. My mother was a widow. My father died on his four months old.

"new york adventure club" Discussed on The Twilight Zone Podcast

"You're about to enter another dimension, a dimension, not only have sight and sound, but my journey into a wonderland of imagination. Next stop the twilight. Tonight on the twilight zone podcast we take a break from our analysis of season, two of the new show to say welcome to an old friend of the show and someone who has maybe something to distract us from what's going on in the world at the moment, but he is my friend all and she all and welcome back to the twilight zone podcasts. Thanks for having me on Thomas. Great to see you and great to be here. You all do all of visions from the twilight zone book which you know sits proudly on my shelf. Your twilight zone historian in a situation like this. We got to find a new way of being passionate about what we love. We gotta find a new way of talking about these things, and and you seem to have been able to do that. So that's why I wanted to speak to you tonight. Tell us about what you've been doing since all this broke Tom. Every negative always has a positive. Come out of it. Something good always comes out of something bad. All those cliches like there's a silver lining in every cloud so of course I mean look even when the United States was in the depression. In a sense World War. Two US out of that and Inter prosperity so It's always dark before the dawn for me personally. I find it interesting that one of the things I notice in this whole quarantining and and. A. Social distancing is that I'm a freelance artist I work out of my home. I'm used to getting up and being my own boss, and having the discipline and create work and try to make money and once a week four inch for food it oh. My so-called lifestyle hasn't changed really one big or most of the freelance artists I know what's happening. Is that the rest of the World Lehman uh-huh? Are are for the first time not only realizing what it's like to be an independent artists working out of your home, but also many of them are self discovering that they actually after that initial shock of the new of being home quote alone more with your family, or whatever, and and having to in a sense, be self-motivated and try to create things or stay connected to work. There actually discovering Tom they can do it, and that even might enjoy it, and you know what's going to come out of this from a business standpoint is that a lot of companies that have offices are going to realize that a portion of their workforce and in different companies. It's going to be a different proportion that they can work at home that means. Means that office space might shrink does save money. I don't need the dry office. If half of my people can work at home, yeah, and people that are working at home that used to Schlep into the office and you know there's no such thing as a good commute. There might be an easier commute, but if you've commuted to work, community sucks yeah. You might love your job. You know my point is. Is that you know? Dare realizing hey I don't have to go to an office so I think that's been the SORTA positives. Come out of this negative for me personally. Doing these webinars For New York Adventure Club. This was a company New York City that used to organize live. Meet Up Group type events like walking tours of. Historic locations in Manhattan. Well, pandemic and March shut all that down and the guy that runs it my partner Cory Schneider. He had a switch to webinars overnight and he needed people that were not only experts to do these webinars. It has to be visual. Because you've got to show people something on their screen. You can't just talk. So he was talking to a friend of mine. WHO's a frank? Sinatra expert will freed wall. Who's WHO's written ten books on Sinatra? Probably about doing instead entre Webinar. And ask them. Do you know anybody else? That's an expert things that it's visual. While soon as that goes, you gotta give Arlen Schumer all so ever since. April first time. I've been doing these pop culture webinars that are basically drawn from my three kind of. Areas of love and expertise and scholarly were are. Comic Book Art in History. Because I'm an illustrator working complex style and you know that's probably my biggest area history, but then there's the twilight zone and all the work I've done on this y like zone the books and the lectures and you you know on my website. There's might each of these have a separate page on my website book, his three twilight zone, and then the music of the Bruce Sprints thing and I think the Webinar. I'm doing a week after twilight zone is a kind of. History, a retrospective of his greatest live performances that have been captured on film. And, by the way I conclude with Bruce at Hyde, park, and two thousand, nine, giving a very. Beautiful performance of the song racing in the street, which was droves, strimmers favourite bruce? Straw Bruce Song Okay there would. There would have been no clash. If droves, drummer haven't seen Bruce Springsteen at the Hammersmith Odeon Nineteen seventy five with his manager at the time and Bruce was up on stage, and you know you can see that performance in the born to run box said there's a video of the Hammersmith Odeon show in color. And? It's the street band early Sri Band. Really at their finest and instructor was in the Audience Elvis Costello is in the audience, Peter. Gabriel got the idea to go solo because of seeing Bruce and seventy, five and Joe strimmer in his autobiography that came out in the year two thousand. was with his manager at the time, he was in a band before the clash. And he's digging up on stage and L. Hoses manager next minute goes. That guy's doing up on stage exactly what I want to be doing. So when I say Bruce's one of the godfathers punk along with Bob. And Patti Smith. I know what I'm talking about, but I digress okay well. Thanks to Bruce for their backs, while yeah, your kind of stock in trade was always not just talking on stage, but it was a mighty media thing issue of visual lectures. Oh, yeah, you're standing there. You're in the road sailing suit. You're doing your thing. You're talking about it and. No script you told me that in Binghamton. No script just updates. It's all up there, but it was a very visual. Sing. How how do you do that on the web? Well the platform I'm using your adventure club is called live storm basically. I create these lectures in apple's keynote program, which was their version of powerpoint because they have beautiful dissolves the powerpoint dozen have, and that's how I like to transition images. But for this Webinars, you've gotta turn your. POWERPOINT or keynote into a pdf file and that's what ends of getting shown so to speak, so it's like images sleeping in wanted time. It's not my ideal I love the soft..

"Let's say Hello to Sarah Heiner. She's the CEO of the publication bottom line Inc. And we've asked her back today because with summer vacation planning in full swing. She has something to say about the term micro Cashin, and why that may be a good alternative to a longer vacation this year. Sarah, thanks for spending a few minutes with Mary Muniz. I am great. Thank you for having me back love talking to you very much. And we having you on the show all the time. So listen, you know, you're personally. Fan of Mike rotations. So I wanna start there. What do you consider a micro caption? And why do you like them as a joke, but sister-in-law, and I we live outside New York. And there's so many things that you just don't do you feel like, well, I live locally, I can't do it. But the take a few hours and basically play tourists. It puts you in a whole of their heads fate. You might as well be on vacation without having to get on a plane and go away for a couple of weeks. It's just a different different space of your life. And it was a total freeing moment. It was great. Tied to New York because you could be in most cities, are you don't have to live near big city. I like where you're going with this. So basically play tourists in your own area. Exactly. I think a lot of people find that long vacations when you come home, Sarah, they're exhausting between laundry and getting caught up with work. Well, not only that whatever problems. You wanted to get away from are still there. So you come back and now, it's more exhausting. You're catching up and the vacation is gone in like five minutes. So if you can take it after noon, and you go on a ferry crew go out of boat ride. If you live by the Great Lakes by a river. You can do that you go to go to our church, if a beautiful church, they're all these things that your backyard that you don't even pay attention to that. If you're really planning a big -cation, you would go visit these kinds of things, right? Take a few hours as it's amazing. How far away you can get in just a couple of hours. So what started out as a joke is something now that you actually really incorporate into your life each year. I do all the time. Then I try to do it. We try to go out a little adventure. There's actually different Facebook groups out something. Called the New York adventure club on Facebook, where they find these funny quirky places that you would ever know existed. So, you know, you talk about a tour of neon factory in Brooklyn there. They're all sorts of things you get so busy your life. That's something to think about that. Just because on the nobody would thinking neon factor. But I have to tell you you're gonna go there. You'll probably come. Amazed and the next time you're playing some type of trivial pursuit or in a dinner party. You're going to have great dinner conversation. Switzerland. And I wanted to go visit the recall of field also in your backyard here is there a beer factory tour. We have the pets factory Stanford museum like who would ever think to go there. But it's hysterical to go. Just in your backyard realize what's there, and, you know, vacations take a lot of planning a lot of money, and you can just do this on the weekends moment. I've never taken the ferry. Ever.
