"Bureau of investigation and they're in the small town of money to investigate the murder of two men. The back room of the same shotgun style house won a white man is disfigured in a way so gruesome, we can't tell you without a trigger warning, if you please, the other, a black man, seems to just walk out of the morgue. The trees is a novel by percival Everett, the author of more than 30 books in the recipient of a Guggenheim. He joins us now from south Pasadena, California. Thank you so much for being with us. Thanks for having me. The murders are gruesome and detailed. The language is rough in their racial epithets of all kinds. And the humor is politically incendiary. How did you make this novel so screamingly funny? I'm glad to hear that it is. I don't know that it is. I think that's perhaps where the humor lies is, but it's absurd. Have eventually the last couple of years help you shape the story in your mind? Well, certainly. But it's a story that didn't become evident in the last couple of years. It was the stuff of the novel was simply underscored as if we needed reminding, but it's been present. Well, that brings us to your character, mama Z tell us about her if you could. Mama Z, I'm not sure who she represents for me. I accept that she is, she's an archivist. She keeps a list with names and pencil pointedly in pencil too. Yes. Because I identities though fixed and forever are also forgettable and fleeting. And these are names, some of which readers would recognize most of which most readers will not, of lives lost. That's the great sadness. It's a list of the names of those lynched in American history. Black white Asian and the striking thing to me about the list is how singular the names are even when they're the names we hear everywhere. And in the list, the most striking names to me are the ones that say, unidentified black woman..

"Terms of the mistakes that they've made, the missed rotations and things like that, that's been a common theme this season. The Lakers be a veteran team, but not really play like a veteran team in terms of the mistakes that they're making. So that indeed has been a frustrating part of watching the team this season. Yeah, and that's hard to kind of put your finger on because it doesn't really make sense, you know? Like you said, this was a veteran team. You wouldn't expect those guys to have these bone headed mistakes, boneheaded penalties, fouls and things like that. Just these careless turnovers. That would keep seeing recurring over and over again. So it's really hard to analyze that and kind of put your finger on what's the root of this, but the only thing I can come up with is, guys, I was just trying to press too much, you know? And that happens when you dig into a whole early. When you get into these holes in these games, you start pressing. Every shot you shoot at that point is a lot more pressure 'cause you know you're behind by so much. You don't have that freedom of, oh, we're up by ten points now, so I can shoot more freely or, you know, I can kind of gamble here on defense. You have to win every possession you feel like. So I think guys are present Lakers don't have a very high margin of error on the season when they're missing the guys that they're missing in order to win games. And then that margin of error just gets smaller and smaller and smaller. When you start a game slow like this. And then like you said, every shot means that much more because you have to make it. You have to go, you know, 8 for ten on your next ten shots because you've got to catch up. And so then you've got that in your head when you're pulling the trigger and we saw guys who just it seemed like they just didn't quite have it down the stretch for that. Sean percival from YouTube said I just missed it, but basically said, are we gonna cut Deandre Jordan in order to bring in a guy like DeMarcus cousins to use his floor spacing? I don't see them going that route. Now cutting Deandre Jordan, there's been some legitimate gripes about his play. We've and Mark you and I talked about this on recent video. But Deandre Jordan tonight, he helped, actually, and the offensive boards pulled down four of them had 11 rebounds on the night 25 minutes played in part because of Anthony Davis's illness. I'm sure. But what was your thought on Deandre Jordan and do the Lakers eventually move on from him this season?.

"Which is then ninety degrees across in our southern hemisphere. It is much the same six months later in the corresponding winter of its year on mars. At their winter. Maxima the polar caps extend over a similar stretch of latitude. They do so however equally. The southern one is considerably the larger in nineteen zero three one hundred thirty six days after the winter solstice in the martian calendar february twenty seventh. It came down in longitude. Two hundred twenty five degrees to forty four degrees of latitude and may be taken to have then measured ninety three degrees across in nineteen o. Five one hundred twenty one days. After the same solstice it stretched in longitude two hundred thirty five degrees till latitude. Forty two degrees and one hundred fifty eight days later in longitude two hundred twenty one degrees to latitude forty one degrees values which supposing it to have been round imply for it a diameter on those occasions of ninety six and ninety seven degrees. It was then february twentieth and march tenth respectively of the martian year. These determinations of its is at the to oppositions agree sufficiently. Well considering the great tilt away from us of the south pole at the time and the horizon word for shortening of the edge of the snow it seems from a consensus of the measures to have been some five degrees wider in nineteen. Oh three then in nineteen o five which may mean a colder winter preceding the former date. The cap was still apparently without a dark contour in both years showing that it had not yet begun to mount less has been learned of the northern cap in eighteen ninety six to eighteen ninety seven when it was similarly presented skirting the other rim of the disc a gap occurred in the observations corresponding to the time by martian months between february twenty fourth and march twenty second on the former date. The cap came down only to latitude. Fifty five degrees in longitude. Three hundred fifty two degrees on the subsequent one and for several days after the latitude of the southern limit of the snow was such as to imply a breadth to it of about eighty degrees. The cap was now bordered by dark line. Proving that melting had already set in it cannot however at its maximum have covered much more country than this in view of its lesser extent on february. Twenty four th fair as our knowledge now is of the dimensions of the martian. Polar caps at their maxima. We have much more accurate information with regard to their minima and this too was obtained much earlier that we should. I have known their smallest rather than their greatest extent with accuracy may appear surprising exactly the opposite being our knowledge of our own. It is not however so surprising as it appears inasmuch as it is an inevitable consequence of the planets aspect with regard to the sun when the tilt of the axis inclines one hemisphere toward the sun that hemispheres polar cap was melt and dwindle while at the same time it is the one best seen the other being turned away from the sun and therefore largely from us as well so that even such part of the letter as aluminum and lies low down toward the horizon of the disk whereas slight change of angle means a great difference in size..

"Now let's read and relax find a comfortable spot. Adjust your volume take a nice deep breath in let it out slowly and off we cow tonight. Let's relax with more from a book about a beautiful planet mars and it's canals. By percival lowell director of the observatory at flagstaff arizona nonresident professor of astronomy at the massachusetts institute of technology fellow of the american academy of arts and sciences member of the astronomical and astrophysical society of america et cetera et cetera published by the macmillan company new york nineteen o six. Let's pick up where we left off in chapter three a bird's eye view of past martian discovery on comparing the maps of scap rally. An i duly directed is struck by a difference in the aspect of the lines in his first map. the canals are depicted simply as narrow winding streaks. Hardly even roughly regular and by no means such departures from the plausible as tom. Live without the communica tori pale indeed to a modern reader prepared beforehand. For geometric construction. They will probably appear no canals at all. Certainly the price of acceptance was not a large one to pay but like that of the cymbeline books it increased with putting off. What he offered. The public in eighteen. Seventy nine was much more dearly to be bought. The lines were straighter narrower and in every way less natural than they had seen two years before in eighteen eighty one to eighteen eighty two. They progressed still more in unaccountability..

Outlook dobbs brought up as a catholic as well and You know. I think. I think all religions in terms of that hope to bring the point. The reason why was drawn to sh- again though which is the spiritual practice yamabushi are the the priest is that it's for percival. It's not a religious spiritual practice on the core of the spiritual practices wants connection to nature on the fact that i'm nature your nature on the planet as nature. So it's the it's the harmony in terms of are equal existence on the planet with older sentient beings. But it it shintoism which is predated is is such a beautiful parts of japanese coachman tradition and it is just an idea of connections nature on. It's very similar to holes celtic practices in ireland's that predate christianity where we held great reverence in terms of psalm. The mon on the on the land all these things are so important than we knew that if we take care of them all they take care of us so again. It's so beautiful especially in the context of where we are now in the global cycle and on what we see in in in the struggle to maintain this in the twenty first century. Yes yeah beautiful. While i could sit here and talk to you. I told you before we hit record. We could probably have an eight hour podcast because again. I'm just so. I'm so mesmerized by your work and yet beautiful. So is there anything that you wanted to touch upon that. We really hadn't had a chance to talk about yet now. i think.

How Does twenty eighteen. Yeah because I left I left, I left la in two thousand, seventeen ellen debris lived abroad for about a year came back, and then we started talking about traveling I and then I kept setting you introverted means you WANNA. Talk about the introverted yeah because I was so. The brilliance of the memes you send me are. So again, it's so sustained. It says everything in like an image, which is why I think like brilliant memes are so valuable they they convey everything but you intrigued me for sure it was like I never looked at the world this way. Thank you. But this this is a we're also investigating the compatibility of our personality types. For Yeah, we're very compatible compatible and I love it and basically, I, would just to bring everybody on the same page what I was realizing because I go I fluctuate between an NF and the NFL. But we're both like between me me we're both Weirdos but we love each other's weirdness that's the basic summary. It's grilled think I don't think we're weird I think everyone else get on our level. Thank you actually said thank you. So I agree So yeah, I have to up in my intro because door you and basically what prompted this whole thing can get everyone on the same page was even writing this dope blog that I've been consuming and you and I been working out so we can catch everybody up on all of that but it's kind of this general premise of the the journey we've been going on in Covid of like. Accepting ourselves and like being our best selves. Having this unique experience of actually like really thriving in the middle of complete utter chaos like not being blind to the chaos but. Yeah and that's why I've been bonding with you all year long and it's been really really great even though the world has been a dumpster fire. We've actually hung out more this year than ever before. Yeah. When people have been asking me how I'm doing like I mentioned you I mentioned our group workout. been a very significant part of my of my. Pandemic. So thank you for that. Oh likewise, likewise, you've been a great friend, a great sounding board and it's a pleasure being stuck inside a different place. All my God, it's the. Dream let us unite separately in different houses. Yes. Yes and consciously connect when it's could meet like it makes sense and it's comfortable. Am I? Yes say otherwise no. I. Love It. It's good boundaries and good. Emotional exploration and one of the themes like one of the entries from your blog that is super like I got very move just by the title was when you're talking about learning to like yourself. So I thought that could be a good jumping off point to kind of just dive into all the thoughts and feelings because there have been a lot. And I wanted to like lazy like can we just talk about the instagram because let's go back to the beginning shall we or like? Yes to contextualize who you are because we don't know if people have listened to our first episode together how how did you? What is your elevator pitch for me? Well now I'm a I'm supposed to be a photographer, but I'm stuck in quarantine shoe facetime and I work out a lot and retouched photos. That's. Like that's pretty much will pages right now. My background is in portrait photography in commercial photography, alive entertainment. My spare time was was spent doing nature photography and a lot of legs just outdoor exploration but you'll everything's kind of off the table now in can't do any of that. Like I'm a photographer. Photographer when the world says, I can be a photographer. Just, kind of retouching photos on a large scale and. I've been writing a lot dislike bogging more. So I things like this time has been given. The has a lot to be introspective and just. I had a previous blog that was more for my photography and I had a hard time writing on the blog released continuing to write on there just because I, started that blog in. Reich right. When I'm out of college my early twenties and it was more just trying to me setting myself up to. Seem like I was like, Hey, I'm of Darfur look at my work I. Know My Shit Yeah and. What I look back on it now I read it I'm like Oh. Yeah I'm I'm a coffee little twenty year old. which which makes sense it makes sense. Yeah So just out of this of quarantine, I started a new blog called now starving artists that it was a euro, I sat on for a while because I liked the name which came from this. There was a joke back in the day in right out of college where up to my close friends they would disappear months at a time and then they would never hear from me because I was probably like somewhere in La trying to do some sort of Hustler on a project that I would just ignore my phone's like Oh. Yeah. Milly died but then she'll come back and resume. A few months later so I I bought this year L. because it was a toddler blog at first I like kind of right. I would of write letters to my friends essentially like no I'm not dead. Yeah. I am not a starving artist. This is what I've been doing this to working on but then I eventually scrapped it he he became better staying connected to friends inside and With quarantine and everything I kinda resurrected that you're al again just so that I could reflect and be more introspective on things that I wish. I could I told myself back Beckenham starting and also It's been a good place for me costs like. What I feel what I went through and kind of finding just acceptance with the with the process and the journey and also like Morsel recognizing that things are not necessarily good or bad. They just are led. We project what we want them to be an they say hindsight is twenty twenty but really it's hindsight's twenty twenty because we choose the connect the events of the reasons and make it fit current. Yeah and I think just kind of being okay with the. See the world and not be so judgmental on our souls is a better state of mind via. A read. So it's just it's just kind of been my sounding board.
