"Long is it doesn't matter that it is as rare. Or something normal Blackbird can be can give a very really good picture if you have the right surroundings and the light and so well you you have a remarkable picture of a pigeon. So I I think that's perfect example there. I know it's difficult to choose among your own photographs. But is there an image that you are particularly proud of either because of the image or the story behind it? Yeah, I have a picture on my it is news on my Facebook profile. It is a white-tailed Eagle who took a big eel in the surface and took her story where I have been sitting all day long in in height on the shoreline of this Lake and it is almost the same story as with who were sitting in the boat's but this even I was sitting there and then I heard the small Ducks they was flying away and then you were knowing something bigger is coming something an eagle normally when they are going away and then the, Rimes was flying away and when the comrades are flying, you know, something is definitely coming and then it turned it came it came around a call. This is white a legal is the biggest predator we have in Denmark and it flew it flew to watch me and the dog Was he took down to the surface of the water and grabbed a big fish? I thought it was a big Pike, but then it turned away and flew away and thought I told okay, it was a bike, but then I saw the pictures and I saw it was Anila, but the funny thing about it was when I had been sitting there for me for 15 more minutes. I suddenly heard something flew flew in above me the eagle came back and he said in the three where I was sitting beneath three meters above me I think and then maybe I couldn't move because it it would see me so I had only to sit there and you know, it was sitting with the ill up in the tree and I couldn't photograph it because if I was moving it was flying away, but then then I spooked it and it for me move or something and then it dropped the bill down to.

"But I'm also when I'm doing macro the best thing is to get the whole insect all the plant or whatever. It is. But that is a very big issue in the in the macro because you haven't got much depth of field in that. So that's that's a big biggest issue in it to get that but then I'm pick up again to work in another way to get a kind of shallow depth of field so that only eyes sharp call the antenna or something and that is a funny thing to work with it is a kind of artistic way to do it in I think because you you are all seeing sharp pictures of everything like in books and so but I as I said earlier, I would like to get my pictures give them something else that dead. Makes your fantasies work if I may say so that's that's that's my goal in all my pictures. I think I think that that is a that's a wonderful goal. And that desire to have our images say something else is something I think a lot of us do tend to forget that that we've all seen pictures of you know pigeons before but you've never seen my picture of a pigeon before, you know, it should have a particular voice. Actually. There are several images I'd like to ask about but what I want to start with is one that I believe you put up on the frame site just within the last week or so and I'm looking at it right now and people thought this was a space-age. It's a gray bird taking a drink of of some sort. Do you know which image I'm talking about? What can you tell me? Can you tell me the story of that image? Yeah it is. I took it off. The cotton from holding up a tree and it is easy. It is the whole where where I have made an hide in one end. And then I have a 5 metre-long Pooja which one and a half meter wide and then then in the end the person lining the and sitting and drinking and so and it is Chien who was coming down for drinking and then I then he said and he began to drink and then that is a story about the picture but the picture went out in the fact that I thought and it is funny to to see the reactions on on the frame the website because I have never thought that so many would have thought even that picture of attention. I think there have been charged in South one thousand people looking at it now and there are so many good. Ways to save him but you you said that many has seen it as an alien or something. I have never seen that I have only seen the pigeon so that was funny. But but when they wrote that many had to have have seen it like in Alien, then I could see it. It's a really moving an image. You have the reflection, you know, which is blurred in in the water and such incredible sharpness on the pigeons head. And then of course, you know a shallow dish filled it I've never would have imagined that a picture of a pigeon could be as evocative. And then as Moody as this one tell me a store of your choice any image, you know from your repertoire to tell me a particularly successful story or tell me the story of.

Achilles and Patroclus in Modern Media
"A couple of episodes are discussed the mythological figures Achilles and Patrick lists and the depiction in ancient texts most notably in his Iliad I don't want to recap episode to thoroughly. So if that sounds interesting to you, I suggest you just go listen to that episode, but I will say a few things necessary background Achilles some. Patrick lists here is off the Trojan War, our break episode which depicted in the Iliad although there is genuinely some ambiguity as to the exact nature of their relationship in the Iliad their relationship is very intense and very important to the plot character arcs and emotional hot of that poll. What is not ambiguous is how their relationship is on the stood in the later Greek texts we discussed. So we discussed east glosses. Play the domes which survives only in fragments famous speech impetus symposium, Ace, Kaz courtroom speech against to Marcus all of which depict achilleas and Patrick lows in a sexual and romantic relationship. As we discussed earlier episode, those works stand relationship in a way that is anachronistic to the Iliad, but we nevertheless thought it was important to note that is reading is a very old an integral part of the evolution of the myth. That you can't really get away from if you're talking about them today speaking of the evolution of this myth, we also spent a bit of time talking about how although people generally appeal to Hermosa when discussing whether Achilles in Patrick Louis Wet. Really love this. Is True one canonical version of the myths in which they feature, and we would be doing them a disservice to understand as early as the real story and every following version as accurate or inaccurate by how it compares to that. I bring this up because it's very easy to find audibles and people talking about how modern adaptations on any good because then not accurate and these articles that generally quiet nitpicky and lazy, and I wanted to know this specifically. So we don't do that sort of thing ourselves. It's inevitable and desirable when adapting these myths into new mediums and feel like very different cultures than the original. That heard this man to make changes just it's necessary to on Seoul's materials while doing. So so we got a comment on differences here, but the compensation will be more like why those changes get made and do we think it works as opposed to just being like well in the Ilia? Data. So with that background out of the way, we're going to talk about Wolfgang Petersen's two thousand four, maybe Troy Madeline Milas to eleven novel the Sung Achilles and the twentieth eighteen BBC mini series story full of the city I think he ranked in the order of like worst to best in my opinion but okay, you may disagree. That was not why I decided to order them. In that way I just thought we'd chronologically but that's fine. I mean now that you said that you did it chronologically and I also view that as West best that makes me feel positive that maybe like an even better adaptation that I genuinely think is good it's coming to clear I don't love any of the music specifically. In seven years but will like no. Sorry in five years because they've come out every seven years how to for two thousand eleven two thousand eighteen. Cool. Okay. Nice. So. We'll be watching an amazing adaptation, the Trojan War with that we will love anyway. So we're going to begin with the to troy maybe the film for it was directed by Wolfgang, pay the send styles Brad Pitt Kilis who just a very two thousand thing to have. It was written by then relative newcomer David Benny off which explains why it's a bit of a dry run, the game of thrones. I that sounds up its vibe. I, was gonNA. Tell you some fun facts about this movie but I decided that they weren't that fun. I cut them all but I'm GONNA I kept one which I tell you solely because it might make you upset Australian. Fun Fact No it's not. So all of the actors in this speak in that accents with the exception of Eric Bana Rosebud, the to Australian actress who had told that they had to get rid of their accents. And I think that's disgusting screw you. Wolfgang. Petersen. I have no problem with like. Okay. You have to change accidents that doesn't sound like a fantasy will like I've whatever accent I have a problem with that and I mean like this some stuff to say about that. But if doing that because you want all your actors to have a consistent accent. Okay. But if you just hate the way Australians, tall, that's not acceptable. Garrett hedlund obvious American accent fine. But Eric Basil accent is absolutely illegal. Sorry. Thinking recompense the twenty twenty, five trae. Offers how the TROJANS are all. Star. I like it. Yeah. The film was commercially quite successful but received mixed reviews, which is frankly claimed more than it does those because it's a bad movie. I tried to watch this movie just like you know throughout my life. I've tried to watch this movie like three or four times. I've sat down in front of this film I've got like twenty minutes and I just can't do it. So. That's where I met with this. Okay Jason Do WanNA disagree and say it's a good movie. Nor I will say that like I don't think it's the worst movie like suddenly I watched this movie as a kid when it came out had no problems with a had some fun fight seines cool choreography some big actors doing fun things than having fun. I didn't really mind it and obviously now watching it I think it has some quite severe problems both as a movie analyzer adaptation I would certainly agree that it's the west of the three adaptations that we're GonNa talk about today. But then again, this is the point cost queers fact and it's not
Jack Chisenhall and Vintage Air
"Welcome cars the matter I'm Robert Ross and joining me today as Jackson Hall, President founder of the vintage air and recipient of the prestigious Robert. E Petersen lifetime. Achievement. Award. Welcome jackets. Good to have you here. Thank you Robert. Appreciate that glad to be here. You've kind of an entire industry that's really come to be known as performance air conditioning. Vintage Air was founded longtime ago now in nineteen seventy six primarily to serve builders who wanted to bill. Really Cool. Hot Rods Right. Talk about how you got to where you are I. Understand you started rich and early age well, yes. I started reading a hot rod magazine and it was hot rod magazine, an Rod and custom which were once at the time that everybody was reading. It had got me interested in old cars and I was about probably thirteen isn't it? Funny? We're in it always starts Yeah. Well thirteen years old I think so long story short my mom my dad was an air force and he was at this particular time was overseas along so she would take me out looking for old cars driving around we drove by one old junkyard that had some pretty nice cars and for Junkyard, and there was a little Mali sedan sitting right there and so. With that one and that started it really which pay fifty bucks hundred bucks for no one hundred dollars ran and drove off. There's a lot of must have been a nice car. It was decent in Iran in my mom felt that was important. So she said that'd be good one it actually Lebron's than I thought well, mode will be in their law anyway but. What did you put in that thing? Jag. Let Me Guess Flathead v Eight maybe something like that. Yeah. The first walk was a mercury by then the mercury and the flatheads kind of really on their last legs so cheap and a guy out of Mercury, my dad and military, and so I could go out to the base hobby shop at work on it therapies they have the tools and equipment wilmer stuff anyway he was out there and he was pulling that thing out and he was gonna put an old set I'm looking at that thing going he san now I gotta get rid of this thing and I'm going hey, wait a second I ask him what he'd takes Twenty. Five Bucks for so. Two fifty, five key begins Mercury, flat. It sounds like deal and boy that was the bee's knees back. Then there really was water fun car that must have been what happened after those formative years he did some college worker well. And as going along I kept working on our of data as we went along than mercury got lost and I put a pontiac over at bow the eight. Okay. Okay. And I use that to go to school I drove that car was my only car and so yeah I, I went to school studied industrial design. Guy Down College it was Vietnam era so. I joined ROTC after I got out of college I went right into the air force that was pretty ambitious endeavor especially at the time you fly planes her through for a little bit and then I did other stuff when emir force well, it sounds like an interesting stint obviously got out your passion for hot rods did not diminish in the lease no it. Always Hot Rod Guy, was there an a Ha moment that you had that said, he wait a minute I'm going to get serious about this. Well, when I got out of the Air Force, I had to make a decision. I think a lot of people that go in the air force consider staining and making a career out of thought about that for just a second and pretty much decided that I wanted to do. It always wanted to do I told my mom when I was about thirteen or fourteen. I told her not WANNA build parts for Cars I decided. Well, if I wanted to do that, this long should stick with that I started looking around. What can I do at that point? Pete shakes had started a year before that. There was a couple of chassis guys out there now and I've thought well I don't want to go jump in the middle something someone is already doing so look can I do that's new made any backup just a second I had started an air conditioning repair installation sinner right after I got out of the Service in seventy three head that stuff laying around so I thought hey, street rod nationals coming up here in August August load up the van take a bunch of stuff up there and made three unique parts to have up there for that deal were no condensers at that time in the condenser is the part that goes in front of the radiate sure that support that takes up space and. A hot rod that could be a sore thumb and of course, in those days, it was all about thirty four. It's some people would say it's still. Also, we'll get to that I designed and had a company make me condenser company up in Minnesota. Make me a condenser that was vertical so it would fit that format because there was nothing like that available number one that's right that narrow narrow grill and the yeah it had to fit just right? Yeah. There were narrow ones but they laid down the width of the cars that were going on now. That's right. So we did that and then nine designed a compressor mounting bracket for a small black Chevy because there were more sponsorship, he's going in at that time anything else. So the hoods were narrow on hot rod so it couldn't hang out sides like they did in the newer cars. So that was the second thing we did that bracket and then the third thing we did is I made a mold. been working with my hands long enough that I just figured hands I can make them all and I can make my own plastic evaporator out in. That's right and put the coralline and I'll have a unique evaporator to fit of thirty, two
Cory Schlesinger On Isometric Training
"Welcome to another episode of the show. I know you've probably if you've been following this show, you've probably caught a couple of McEwen as that I've put on and decided, it's time to not just do them myself. Because I enjoy answering questions, but in addition to have to kind of check and make sure I'm not double or triple covering old question. I just thought it'd be more fun to get more minds involved in this segment of the show and I always enjoy whether it be an episode with three people or four, generally speaking the more the more people in the conversation. It's always a good thing and. And also I just love talking to Corey. So I wanted to get him involved on the the QNA. Here just a quick back onto for those you guys who aren't too familiar with corey his work. He is the head, strength and conditioning coach for the Phoenix Suns. He's spent the last or the previous three years as the head of basketball athletic performance for Stanford University. He was involved at a couple a D. One schools before that he's also trained pro athletes Olympians, and it's just overall as a coach in his overall a coach who? Is incredibly creative, but also is incredibly practical and athletes centered in the way that he views train. The training of the athlete core is a guy who not only has a great mind for the strength element things, but also played basketball in the college level and is continually. Looking at a wider more zoomed out view of what what training athletes means in context of becoming a better player. So for the show we took you guys as questions on social media, a lot of them were directed towards US specifically core issues on athlete autonomy in his training system, but also some great questions on isometrics foot training. Combining strength with sports, skill, training and more This was a really fun show and I will say definitely the questions are probably a little bit more geared towards cores neck of the woods, which is awesome. I mean honestly I I would just as well consider this a second interview with Corey just as much as a Q. A.. It's just fun to answer these questions alongside him so for episode to eleven. Let's get onto this QNA with myself and Corey slesinger. I. We got a special QNA today. I was sick of just doing myself and some super excited. Have Corey here so welcome to the Q. and Corey. Hey glad to be able. All right well, so let's get rolling. Thanks Irwin. Who who pop questions I? Think we just ask for my instagram this time instead some different mediums. Usually, that's where most of them come from anyway, so ause kick it off. Acceleration Randy Petersen thanks for the question he asked about the utility of ground-based strength, tumbling, crawling ruling, wrestling with pro athletes, and so maybe this could be framed to like a college versus pro, or as he worked through the levels What do you think about that one corey in in different populations. You know it's it's interesting because everyone, no matter what if you're professionalize your amateur? They all fit on a spectrum of their own developments, so like taking a. Broad like. Tumbling good for professional athletes, yes, if they're lacking certain things and the same of amateurs. Yes, if they're lacking certain things, but we gotta look at it more so in my opinion is you gotta? Just do it needs Alice. And where that athlete is currently, you know it's not this cutoff point where all of a sudden they're professionals. They don't need to do XYZ or there. Is there an amateur, so they have to do x Y and Z. You have beautifully gifted genetic athletes who don't eat a lot of art work to be hundred percent hottest, and so then you skip a lot of those steps, or you have more strategies in place to keep them. Them playing or keep them doing the things that make them awesome on the court or on the field, and then you have some that are like well. They're grinders are the ones that constantly need that training stimulus or that controlled stimulus to help them develop or stay more robust than those athletes in the woods yet? Maybe they do any more quote, unquote, ground-based work, or they need more skill acquisition, not from a skill perspective on the court, but just from a human perspective, and that's where for me. It's everybody across the board on your child won't do your DNS in stages, or you're an elite level athlete, who seven foot tall and do a backflip duck. All of them need some form or fashion of. Tools that will allow them to get in and out of scenarios via falling which everyone in some point we'll go through or you know being ground-based and being able to stay able is and being able to express that or not only express forces, but also be able to hush this to be able to sustain them to be able to of our accepts them into. Be Able to redirect them, and that's where I think there's a question that was presented earlier. The France Bosh you. How does this influence? I guess some of these things. Just self organizing and that's what I think. Tumbling willing comes into the equation as Yom. You're just giving them exposures them. How to self organize in areas that might not be. Normative values are a plane basketball on a hardwood surface which requires as a ton of stiffness. How about we actually teach them how to fall and get more compliance so they can keep receiving

Itself has got its own history. The the materials inside the person who owns it or owned it. I should say he is passed on. He passed away. I believe in two dozen seven. Wasn't it that I think that's when Peterson yeah. Seven years age eighty when he died, but of course places still operating and doing well as you as said. It's just it's A. It's a great place to go, and as you've mentioned, spend more than a day there. If you can were a day I know, it's tough to spend more than a day, but if you can spend day, there I'd say you're getting your. Your money's worth out of museum for sure and the museum itself is. is a celebrity in its own right. has its own histories building as you mentioned Adam Corolla held his tenth anniversary celebration for his podcast there, so maybe we can. Can do live podcast at the Pierce Museum. One day it is involved in the death of the notorious B. I g, yeah, right? That was the last place he was seen.

"Service veteran stories of hunger and war on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you find that tastiest history podcasts. Now it's funny that you say Natural History Museum because that's where this whole thing started really. I mean we didn't talk about this but I just want to mention it because I think there's one thing in here that's really interesting. I think out of this whole thing. I mean maybe can take pieces of this and you know that's the most interesting thing to you but the purchase price of the of the building one of the most interesting things to me out of this whole thing so the building itself. I think it was like I want to say nineteen sixties. It was opened in nineteen sixty two as a branch of a department store. I believe right Zebu yes. See Boo gives a department store back then and then another another department store bought from arena was a nineteen sixty five and they owned it until nineteen eighty six and I think it was called or box so it was an or box department store. Then after that point so from sixty five to eighty six and then after that I mean after Peterson bought the Peterson. Who by the way I mean we we can even say this Peterson Public- Megan. He's he's the guy that was in charge of Magazines like hot rod and motor trend and and motorcyclist and you also had some other stuff like tiger beat teen magazine and Sassy magazine's Yadda he has a really compelling story. Just real briefly on him if we can do his background. Is that right? Yeah why not? Pure back the billing. Okay so Robert Peterson. was born in nineteen twenty six and he was a bootstraps guy. His father was a truck mechanic which given that lifelong love of cars. He's a veteran. He served in the Army Air Corps and he went to work as a publicist. Mgm and he got laid off which launched him into his creating his own business with some other people who got laid off at MGM. And that set him on the path to becoming the publisher of all these profoundly influential auto magazines and it also gave him frankly. The scratchy needed to create his own car collection. And then to create this automotive museum so in a weird way thanks for being jerks GM. What's the old saying? I mean every door closes gets the worm or something like that. I learned I learned the word for man. I thought he guys for the blending idioms or cliches. Oh this is my My problem right. This is my diagnosis. I think it's your gift. It's called a Mala for a Mala for okay. So we'll burn that bridge when we get to it okay or makes perfect sense. It's blocking surgery. Well when you say them the ridiculous that's crazy but to me. They make perfect sense. You've opened this kid of worms now ally. These are great. You know who did this now? I remember It was in back the future. It was It was biff biff. Yeah you're right. Curtis biff. Biff was always mixing up those savings and it was so funny. But I do that myself now. I can't I can't get them straight. I don't think it's a bit either. Do I believe you? I cannot get those straight I mean. There are some that I see that I can I get but others? I just can't remember and like it's funny because like I've already started saying it just have to finish it with whatever I can think of at the moment you know I can. I know how to use it. I just can't get the right words out. You always nail the beginning. Yeah the well. Yeah I mean it's used in the right context but then it's not. It's the closing part of the wrap up. You Know Punch line. There have been so many men that I sometimes. I can't remember whether you actually said one or whether I thought of something that sounded like it would be like a Scout Benjamin style observation and stuff like you know you can lead a horse to water but there are two in the Bush stuff like that now for. Mala fork very good very good so he anyway so Peterson. He's moved on from his job. Laid off or whatever and the and now he's suddenly thrust into the world publishing every wants to be a publisher right right right and it's already made his fortune and that's why we have to In a weird way thank him. Gm and now that we know Pearson back to the building. We did this episode backwards. Didn't we guess so? You know maybe it was a That Tarantino like maybe that's Maybe you should give him a CO credit on this. Maybe this'll be our first. Non Linear podcast. Actually probably wouldn't be no we. We do this all the time we buy. It doesn't matter occurred. Or you're going to edit this and so we started it media rests. This makes sense really yeah. I don't know about that. I have to ask listeners if any of this make sense. Oh God building Oh yes we also On a serious note if there are any complaints we do want to hear from you. The good stuff as well as the bad stuff. So we're grateful whenever you take the time to contact us We have a special email before any complaints. You can write directly to our complaint department. Which is Jonathan Strickland at Iheartradio? Dot Com twenty four seven. Three hundred sixty five days a week daisy year. I mean he's going to kill us to be mean as you want. Yeah please please let it rest. Let us have it. Yeah unvarnished truth again. Only to that email address I feel for you said Multiple Times. If you're worried it didn't come through. I love this part of the show me to right. Oh okay this building back to the building okay. So we're in Nineteen eighty-six and I guess Six years later Robert Peterson decides that he is going to US looking for property for museum for his interesting in automobiles. He's got all this money. All right he decides that he's going to open a museum and he's trying to find an ideal space and he decides that this is a great building for it this this department store because it has very few windows. The place doesn't it's not completely open like a lot of the other A lot of buildings downtown were and decided that this would be a great place to have you know artifacts without any kind of direct exposure to sunlight so it doesn't have to worry about Sun Fade on you know whether it's automobiles interiors or paintings or whatever he happens to put up in there and decides that he's going to buy this building and he buys the building in Nineteen ninety-two for an odd. Some this is this is what I find interesting about this whole thing. I mean there's a lot interesting but this number he buys it in nineteen ninety two for its all once completely one's eleven million one hundred eleven thousand one hundred eleven dollars and eleven cents so all ones all the way across. It's very easy number to remember but Bison vice billion in one thousand nine hundred two from that department store or box and in one thousand nine hundred. Forty opens up to museum. The first iteration of the Peterson Museum and a much different version than you and I have seen it was it was It was still nice. It was just different and the renovation that they went through recently. They went through in two thousand fifteen. And did this This hundred and twenty five million dollar renovation whereas we said you know they. They've done not only the inside inside museum but they've also done the outside the museum where it's this kind of an. Here's a better way to describe it. I found it finally Stainless Steel Ribbon Assembly. That's made of one hundred tons of fourteen gauge type three or four steel in three hundred eight sections and has something like one hundred forty thousand custom stainless steel screws. That keep the thing in place. It's really it's interesting looking building. It stands out in in downtown. La Of course and it's just it's it's an inside and out. This is a unique experience. Really it's it's it's the building itself has got. Its Own History. The the materials inside the person who owns it or owned it. I should say he is passed on. He passed away. I believe in two dozen seven. Wasn't it that I think. That's when Peterson yeah seven years age. Eighty When he died but of course places still operating and doing well as you as said. It's just it's A. It's a great place to go. And as you've mentioned spend more than a day there if you can were a day. I know it's tough to spend more than a day but if you can spend day there. I'd say you're getting your your money's worth out of museum for sure and the museum itself is Is a celebrity in. Its own right. has its own histories building. As you mentioned Adam. Corolla held his tenth anniversary. Celebration for his podcast. There so maybe we can do a live podcast at the Pierce Museum. One day it is involved in the death of the notorious B. I g yeah right. That was the last place he was seen. Live right right and the buildings featured in a couple of films Miracle Mile Volcano who killed the electric car Su Su checking who killed the electric car. That's what the EV was there. Right Museum. What was it? There isn't a strange story someone who owned A. Oh Jimmy v. One goes to visit their their car. Return vehicles right right. It gives them back to GM and the one that that person in particular owned or rented Was On display at the Petersen Museum. That's still the the Ev one story for another day. Perhaps though so strange is but let us know what exhibits you saw at the Petersen Museum because odds are The average person's not seeing all of the exhibits nor probably all of the vehicles. No unless you work there you wouldn't be wouldn't have been privy to see every single one of them or no you know exactly what's coming up when so it'd be a it'd be a fascinating place to work wouldn't it. Yeah absolutely dream job. I mean our gigs. Okay but dream job would be working at a auto museum. Wouldn't it? Yeah I guess so. That would be fun. I don't know you know what I waffle on this a little bit because I think it'd be really cool to work. In a museum novel Automobile Museum would be fun to be surrounded by that but I mean after about a day or two. I don't know unless you really taken deep dives into the history of certain car and you really focus on that and then move onto the next one. I think that it would just become a bit repetitive. For me. See this way you WanNa get the perfect job which is either the test driver or the restorer. Oh yeah before your mechanic there. It'd be great. Yeah it'd be fine but test driver. That's an interesting idea to if you're able to like actually you take them out mode of them around a little bit stretcher legs. That'd be fun. I think you have to earn that. I don't think they let you don't think on the website they have. You know. Cash Year Cafe Position Test driver. Yeah you know. Some of the Dawson set The Lane Museum. One that I mentioned earlier. I know that I was talking to one of them for a long time. And just Kinda. Our paths crossed many times during the museum tour there. He's very helpful. Said that you know he does get to take the Eagles Home. Because that's one of the pride of a lot of museums is that you know just in particular the Lane Museum. Every vehicle is roadworthy so they urged their employees to take them home. Sometimes you know just kind of work them out a little bit because it's good for a car to move it. It's it's bad for them to sit around so they realized that. And you know I'm sure that there are limitations. Are CERTAIN VEHICLES AIRBAG? Not Allowed to bring home like you know the you know the the rally cars and things like the Group B rally car ride show up or vehicles like that that are not road legal of course and that's why you refused to volunteer their right. That's right rally. Nothing taken not taking a group B rally car home. I'm not doing it. What important regarding these museums in this travel so now that I am officially A on the road consultant for car. Stuff there are GonNa be times where I'm out of the studio because I'm on some weird mission and we would love your help recommend some of your favorite museums in your neck of the global woods smear favorite events race tracks. No spoilers but we're working on getting car stuff itself back on the road and we would love to hear your recommendation. So.

"I guess that predates the days when he worked for GM of course and was fulltime on the GM design Steph. But her one of the things about Fatty arbuckle he was. He was like a by. I said he was a big car guy at the time and really loved automobiles. He was one of the first celebrities one of the first stars to be able to do this because he was also the first movie star that would make was was making on contract over a million dollars a year. He's the very first actor to be able to do that while. So that's kind of his notch in history. I mean other than having some you know some good films of course but Apparently a good actor. Mr Buckle Fed Had some skeletons in his closet. I was trying to avoid it. But yeah he he I don't want to get into that. 'cause he's got a whole history there as well but Yasim definite skeletons in that closet while we're on the subject of things that are turning a bit dark there's also the nineteen sixty seven boot hill. Express Hot Rod. Oh you know what I'm talking about. I do have seen this one. I'd I did get to see this. You saw this did yeah. This is nut so ray farmer Built built a boot Hill Express. They took a funeral coach from the eighteen hundreds and they made it a hot Rod. Yeah now you know what Kurt and I had talked about this on an earlier episode when we did The the seventies sixties and seventies hot Rod Kerma cars we It was an actual coach. It said it said wasn't is said to have taken one of the James Gang members. Yeah I think to This final resting place at Boot Hill. Graveyard is that. Do you think that's true or do you think that's That's a myth. It's tough to verify this tall tale territory you know. I wonder but in hot rods. All have the these stories about them. I I like that though I like. I like the you know the people can kind of dig into it if they want to trace it back. That's always fun while I know it. Sounds like we're maybe jumping around a little bit. We're doing that because we want to give you Kinda give you a broad view of just. How many different unique vehicles there are in fact? I am probably going to return when I go back to that area of the world because they have some upcoming exhibits that I wanNA see. I was thinking about this after we did our famous car collectors episode. I think Scott mentioned James. Hatfield metallica right. Yeah that's right. So the James Hatfield collection is coming to the Pearson Museum he has an entire collection that he's exhibiting in the museum and it started. The opening day is today as we record this song. No kidding I'd love to go to that because he's got. I think he was a collector of hot rods. Right right dot rods and some some really old class. I mean we're talking. Nineteen thirties iron. That type of era vehicle that vintage era I think oh no I think it's a one day thing now boy. Well you know what that's to Bay. We'll have you're listening to this episode live within an otherwise otherwise Just missed out on the in the head field collection. I'm sure there's plenty of other collections To go to an and check out. That's that's the one thing too. I mean you go to their Their website they've always got you up to date on what's coming in. What's what's leaving. You know the dates of the shows and everything so if you're in the area of You know the Peterson definitely worthwhile. It's not really that expensive to go. It's it's relatively a cheap afternoon But man there's there's so many beautiful beautiful vehicles there it is. It really is a different type of museum altogether. Yeah highly recommended though. I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA start saying one museum is better another since I feel like I'll be on the road for a lot of these. Yeah but he's very different for Nagoya Museum. And if you go to the Peterson. Museum be aware that. Like the natural history museums or the Smithsonian's this is at the very least of full day visit. Don't go in at like four thirty thinking you're going to run through. No no no. This is This is a a long after noon or a full day. And even like you said you can go back and check it out. Hey It's been henry and Marcus hosts of the last podcast on the left are shows dedicated to uncovering hilariously horrifying stuff. And now we're only.

"And if you remember. Elvis Presley was doing a lot of like Hawaiian beach type movies in you know a lot of movies at the time but one of the movies was called easy. Come easy go and it's like a. It's a musical comedy type thing. There's lots of you know on the beach type activity going on. You Know Surfing that type of thing but one that was done and of course the designed like what would be like a beach car for the nineteen sixties and they gave. Everybody can picture that you know the the Atlantic colors you know the the Bright Reds Greens yellows blues. That kind of thing. I'm the seats seat. Backs are surfboards. That have been chopped modified in in a way that makes sense for a seat back and they look like surfboards. Sticking out of the car looks like four surfboards. It's of course an open vehicle multi. Everybody can picture the hot rod version of that Big engine up front and you know. Open the top and you know big fenders and everything in the the fat wheels all around us not to fed not like the dragster type ones but just a cool looking beach buggy that you would anticipate you know being from that era with the beach cars. Will I guess they just repurpose this thing? As as the as the joker mobile for the Batman TV series which is really strange to me. Like why? Why would bear bear of all people? He was building so many cars. And and like you said been. This is way off brand. It doesn't seem to fit the joker for me. I don't know why but it just doesn't have the right feel to it. Does it far be for me? Criticize someone's artistic choice but it just doesn't. It doesn't feel like a joker mobile I think. Kurt you said it. Best off air were you describing it as the first round the doors looks like the grinches for Yeah Yeah it's all. Kinda matted down and dirty and I know that that's honest you know it's time right. I think it's time that does that. Because I've seen shag carpet that gets into the same condition after longtime you're on old custom vans and things but This is just like it's kind of dirty and getting gross looking right now but to give it credit. I guess it's in the basement of a museum I don't know there's a lot of tiki designed to it. I mean a lot of you know real intricate design on the door panels and creative it. It it's kind of like going for it. It's it's definitely dirty yet creative. It's definitely dirty and I've seen I've seen the the car. There's a A link to a video where it's a little bit cleaned up a little bit polished up and it's probably the way you saw at been all these photos are a little bit rougher. Maybe the way it came into the shop so it does look a lot better but I don't know as far as being a car for the joker a good villain vehicle. I don't know if it's a villains vehicle has has a happier feel to it you know. Yeah it I was to have that like dichotomy right. Especially Arthur classic joker in the Adam West Batman. Yeah is worlds away from like the Heath Ledger. Joker Oh yeah or the one that we just saw. Recently the backstory off the joker. Oh Yeah I guess. That's pretty darcus. Well how he actually became that person. It's just you're right. It's a completely different character altogether So yeah maybe but it's still just doesn't fit that character very well. It's an oddball piece of the collection. I mean there's there's a lot of those the You'd mentioned other movie cars. Yeah delorean a blade runner There was I have to be on. That was the only exhibit where I had some would say mixed feelings. Because there's nothing wrong with vehicles per se but you know you get up close and you know especially with Scifi vehicles you can see. Like hovercraft a glider of some sort and we know that that technology doesn't exist in the real world right. I accept that. Were there to see the design but then when you get closer and closer to break down and go oh that's at is plywood so you could tell that summer meant to be filmed from far away. Rights others are meant for close ups in those of the refined very carefully put together. You know well done ones. That's where you know they. They got the close ups in the in. The you know maybe the person inside and they're doing you know like driving shots or whatever but it from a distance. These cars don't have to be all that you know they just have to have the same general shape. You'RE GONNA have somebody different driving them a stunt driver. Whoever right right so that doesn't necessarily matter. I think one of the best examples I've ever seen but not person were some of the hardcastle McCormick cars. The Coyote remember the COON COYOTE. Kit Car that they had in that Mccormack the The convict in this whole thing. It's it's very improbable setup for the whole host one. I haven't thought about Robert. Yeah yeah but it's a great list loved to watch that show just for that just for the coyote because cool and they had a few that were really well put together and then they had some that. Were just piles of garbage. I mean they just it were fiberglass shells and they were on top of like a really rough frame and but they drove they run and they ran and drove but those are the ones they would jump over hay bales. And you know. They weren't so careful with it because they didn't. They knew that they could build another one quickly. But if you look at you know some of the stills from the actual film itself or or the television show you're able to tell you know like okay this is really really rough you can see the The intensity with which they focused on details in some cars versus others. That are a little bit worried. Like put together a bit more sloppily. You know right or the rough around the edges so you were there at the museum and you're seeing things like you know tack welds and you've really saw plywood on a car like you see in like it's not metal. It's painted wood. And Yeah Yeah. What about any other like really agree? Just things that you saw cars that were standouts for like you know this is the. I can't even believe this is in here in this museum. But it's part of movie history. Yeah I just WANNA keep I wanNA keep it positive like I ate if anything to put a positive spin on it It just the craftsmanship and the ingenuity of the people involved in the production. Because until you get up close to something like a till you get close to some of these vehicles and I'm not going to name specific ones to get up. Close this of these vehicles. You know when you see them on the screen. It looks real My car is kind of like that. Now Yeah what's going on nothing terrible it's just You know from a distance looks pretty good still the vacuum it. No I think it's just getting older. And there's some dents and dings and things from being in a parking lot security sitting on the trunk with their rifle the rifle butts you that They always causes a lot of scuff and dents and things but now just you know the the normal like minor flaws that come along with owning a vehicle for a certain amount of time. And and you know you're less pleased with close up as as you are. Then you know it becomes like a twenty foot car. You're happier with twenty feet away. Then you are up close when you're polishing the car and you you know just all the flaws and the minor imperfections that are there but I think a lot of these museum cars are like that too they're also many of them here that are pristine and he just beautiful beautiful examples. And maybe I'm I don't know if I'm GonNa lead you to something that wasn't there at this time. There were four or five years ago on the ground floor. They had a display. When I was there of French manufactured cars or or build cars. Bugatti the Taube. Oh I think was another one that they had but there beautiful beautiful flowing designs that were painted just like it looked like they had twenty or thirty coats of paint on them and chrome that was in real decorative Organic flowing curves and everything is useful cars but that was also in that controversy was have going on that they were going to get rid of kind of the American culture. The the the south in particular the South South Southern California car culture type vehicles and changed the whole thing over to like these French designs because the the new owner of the place and there was a lot of back and forth. Talk about what they were doing because they were selling some cars off. I think at the time right. People were worried that they were going to completely convert over to a different type of museum that it was never intended to be like where. Where does the Line Stop Right? Yeah exactly yeah because they had that history of being kind of like a a microcosm of southern California car culture through the decades like everything from the very beginning of the automobile all the way through current day. Yeah we'll definitely expanded their collection you know and one of the things is really impressive And you can see these if you go during the right time would be all the all the concept cars they. Have you know like they have a plymouth explorer that was built by Ghia and It explore yeah is nineteen fifty four. This was just a design study for Blake. How it Plymouth? Look if this manufacturer built it yeah I like stuff like that. Yeah and is really stylish. Nineteen thousand nine hundred forty four hundred. I'M GONNA have to look that up and see what that was all about but You so they have more than they have other concept vehicles there of course sure. But yeah I I. I find like just the declarative nature of what they have there to be fascinating too. It's like they. They didn't focus on just one type vehicle or one No not. It's not not that there's a bad thing about this but when you go to certain museums that have a focus like that. It's like hot Rod Matab Museum or drag Racing Museum than I went to recently they. It's all drag racing cars. They've got a separate building. That has you know. They're the collection of the owner. You know that has other stuff but like one building is strictly just for this type of vehicle. I find it fascinating that they have. So many different cars they can rotate in and out like And they have all these different Exhibits can again bring in and out like the they have a Porsche collection. Right I guess is is pretty exemplary as well. They have like extensive as they say Everything from one thousand nine hundred eighty nine Porsche. Sixty four all the way up through you know. Modern Day porsches well. They have Japanese automotive industry. Vehicles Air on display. Like you know a huge history of Japanese automotive industry so like everything from the beginning to the end of that as well. They have children's race cars that are powered that they can bring out. Which I think is a fascinating thing. I'd love to see that that I didn't see. I don't think I remember seeing any of those but the power children's race cars would be really cool thing because I'm a big go kart fan anyway. Like right They have you know the lightning McQueen car from you know Pixar. Yeah D.C. Disney car Delaney McQueen shirt on today. It's kind of like a sort of a superman superman movie. I just realized that I had the shirt on today. That's what I'll say. They have the NASCAR Herbie there. Which is kind of a unique vehicle. The nineteen ninety-two batmobile. Of course you talked about. They've got Elvis Presley's Pandera is somewhere there that car. That's another one that we just talked about recently. You know how Elvis Presley a guy he was. He had a lot of cars big collection of cars and the Patera one that sometimes. We'll make the rounds you know. They'll it'll travel. And you know with cars the rockstars or whatever you know and I know that it went to the Henry Ford at some point and you can go see you know. There's the bullet hole in the in the steering wheel from where he shot. The king shot the car. Apparently when it wouldn't start and I think the story is that after he shot at the things started up like it worked like he threatened it into operating in. What's the street? There's a whole story behind The the pen Tara L. and Elvis Presley but Oh and you've talked about the delorean time machine. That's one that I think everybody can picture. There's there's all kinds of movie cars and cars are owned by famous people. I know I saw When I was there there was Fatty arbuckle scar. He's a he's a car guy A big car guy. He's a he's a he's a big guy he was the big fella thus the nickname fatty arbuckle but he Hit cars that were built by parley. Earl he went to Harley Earl on three cars made specifically for him by Harley Earl. He were designed and built for him by Him.

"As as the as the joker mobile for the Batman TV series which. Is really strange to me like why? Why would bear bears of all people? He was building so many cars, and and like you said been. This is way off brand. It doesn't seem to fit. The joker for me I. Don't know why, but it just doesn't have the right feel to. It doesn't go far. Be For me. Criticize someone's artistic choice, but the just doesn't. It doesn't feel like a joker. Mobile I think Kurt you said it best off air. Were you describing it as the first round? The doors looks like the grinches for yeah, yeah, it's all Kinda matted down and dirty. Dirty and I know that that's honest. You know it's time right. I think it's time that does that. Because I've seen shag carpet that gets into the same condition after longtime, you're on old custom vans and things, but this is just like it's kind of dirty and get a gross looking right now, but to give it credit I guess it's in the basement of a museum I don't know there's a lot of tiki designed to it I mean a lot of you know real intricate design on the door panels and. Creative, it it. It's kind of like going for it. It's it's definitely dirty yet. Creative definitely dirty and I've seen the the car. There's a a link to a video where it's a little bit cleaned up a little bit polished up and it's probably the way you saw at been. All these photos are a little bit rougher. Maybe the way it came into the shop, so it does look a lot better, but I don't know as far as being like a car for the joker, a good villain vehicle. I. Don't know if it's a villains vehicle. Has has a happier feel to it, you know. Yeah, it I. was to have that like dichotomy. Right especially Arthur classic joker in the Adam West Batman. Yeah is worlds away from like the Heath Ledger Joker, oh, yeah, or the one that we just saw recently the backstory off the joker. Oh, yeah! I guess it's Pretty Darcus well. How he actually became that person, and it's just you're right. It's a completely different character altogether so yeah, maybe, but it's still just doesn't fit that character very well. It's an oddball piece of the collection I mean. There's there's a lot of those the you'd mentioned other movie cars. Yeah, delorean, a blade runner There was I have to be on. That was the only exhibit where I had some. Would say mixed feelings because there's nothing wrong with vehicles per. Se, but you know you get up close, and you know especially with SCIFI vehicles. You can see like hovercraft. A glider of some sort and we know that that technology doesn't exist in the real world right I accept that we're there to see the design, but then when you get closer and closer things started to break down and go. Oh, that's. At is, plywood? You could tell that summer meant to be filmed from far away. Rights others are meant for close ups in those of the refined very carefully. Put together. You know well done ones. That's where you know. They got the close ups in the in the you know maybe the person inside and they're doing you know like. Driving shots or whatever but it from a distance. These cars don't have to be all that you know. They just have to have the same general shape. You'RE GONNA. Have somebody different driving them a stunt driver? Whoever right right so that doesn't necessarily matter I. Think One of the best examples I've ever seen, but not person were some of the hardcastle McCormick cars. The coyote remember the coon Coyote Kit car that they had in that McCormack, the the convict in this whole thing it's it's very improbable setup for the whole host one. I haven't thought about Robert. Yeah, yeah, but it's a great. List loved to watch that show just for that just for the coyote because cool, and they had a few that we're really well put together. And then they had some that were just piles of garbage I. Mean They just? It were five or glass shells, and they were on top of like a really rough frame, and but they drove they run, and they ran and drove, but those are the ones they would jump over Hay Bales, and you know they weren't so careful with it because they didn't. They knew that they could build another one quickly. But if you look at you, know some of the stills from the actual film itself or or the television show. You're able to tell you know like this is really really rough. You can see the the intensity with which they focused on details in some cars versus others that are a little bit worried like put together a bit more sloppily, you know right or the rough around the edges, so you were there at the museum and you're seeing things like you know. Tack Welds, and you've really saw plywood on a car like you see in like it's not metal. It's painted wood and yeah, yeah, what about any other like really agreed? Just things that you saw. Cars that were standouts for like. You. Know this is the I can't even believe. This is in here in this museum, but it's part of movie history. Yeah, I, just WANNA. Keep I WANNA. Keep it positive. Like I ate. If anything to put a positive spin on, it it just. The craftsmanship and the ingenuity of the people involved in the production, because until you get up close to something like A. Till you get close to some of these vehicles and I'm not going to name specific ones. To get up close this of these vehicles. You know when you see them on the screen. It looks real. My car is kind of like that now. Yeah, what's going on? Nothing terrible, it's just you know from a distance looks pretty good. Still the vacuum it. No I think it's just getting older, and there's some dents and dings and things from being in a parking lot. Security sitting on the trunk with their rifle. The rifle butts you that they always causes a lot of scuff and dents and things, but now just you know the the normal like minor flaws that come along with owning a vehicle for a certain amount of time, and you know you're less pleased with close up as as you are. Then you know I think it becomes like a twenty foot car. You're happier with twenty feet away. Then you are up close when you're polishing the car. And you know just all the flaws and the minor imperfections that are there, but I think a lot of these museum cars are like that, too. They're also many of them here that are. Pristine, and he just beautiful beautiful examples, and maybe I'm I don't know if I'm GONNA. Lead you to something that wasn't there. At this time there were four or five years ago on the ground floor. They had a display when I was there of French manufactured cars or or build cars Bugatti the towel. Oh, I. Think was another one that they had. But there beautiful beautiful flowing designs that were painted, just like it looked like they had twenty or thirty coats of paint on them and chrome. That was in real decorative organic flowing curves, and everything is your cars. But that was also in that controversy was have going on that. They were going to get rid of kind of the American culture. The the the south in particular, the South South Southern California car, culture type vehicles and changed the whole thing over to like these French designs, because the the new owner of the place, and there was a lot of back and forth talk about what they were doing because they were selling some cars off I think at. At the time right? People were worried that they were going to completely convert over to a different type of museum that it was never intended to be like. Where where does the line stop? Yeah, exactly yeah, because they.

"Yeah just like Fernie Star Wars Fans. The name of that tiny. Yoda in the man. Delorean is not baby. Yoda but everybody calls it baby. Of course yes. So this is why they want us to call it like paypal transport. I think or something like that. Yeah some the way less. Tv So this mobile is a nineteen ninety eight Cadillac and this is one of the only examples of one that a pope mobile that was open. Top constructed on amount modern chassis. Gm Mexico built it for John. Paul the second just to use on his trip to give a speech at a stadium in Mexico City. This is the glass box on. This does not and good thing to mention Scott because he never actually road and the Cadillac. There were security concerns about the open design however as the manufacturers are quick to point now. The pope did bless the car on the visit. So it's it's got cosign really. Yeah and it has the seat mechanism that we talked about earlier. Pope Mobiles. Yeah you know where so on several pull mobiles the people seat where they actual pope sits is on this hydraulic system. That can raise or lower the seat. Oh that's cool. Yeah esplanade highlight that and that's the ones that have that bulletproof shambling do that too. All that is good. That's a that's a cool feature. I think that's that's interesting to be able to raise and lower yourself into into that box in the glass box. See this is yeah. This is where the dictators need to Be Humble because no matter how powerful you are as dictator. I don't think there are people who are building specific cars for you to take a field trip starting to laugh when you're describing when you said that. The pope bless this vehicle. I got a picture my head of like George Costanza in Seinfeld like buying a car that had claimed to have been blessed by the Pope or something because he was Jon voight car right right but it wasn't the actor Jon Remember. He bought a car. That was all right. I have I feel like it's one of those moments where I have to say this because I know I have many many years ago. There used to be a chairman of of Chrysler named Bob Eaton and it was back at the time when My wife and I at the time we worked for a company. That was like a supplier to Chrysler television station. And it was like their internal television station and time we bought a Jeep. Cherokee that was owned by a guy named Bob. Eaton but it wasn't the Bob Eaton so anybody later. That didn't know like past us. You know the past the ownership. Yes if they were to trace back the ownership of that vehicle. They might be confused to think. That was Bob. Eaton's jeep which I thought was kind of funny because somewhere down the line that's GonNa get confused still around it was like a ninety nine. Cherokee read one anybody out there knows of this one. Watch out for that That fake on the on the auction block. You know if it happens but But it was not the Bob Eaton but I always got a chuckle out of that thinking it was. It was like Castanza's Jon Voight is there. I mean okay. I'm totally unaware of this I don't know the answer here. But is it legal for private citizens to own? Ah Pope Mobile. I guess it is. Yeah sure why not. There's no law against it okay. One one of the post recently owned or is still does maybe owned a Harley Davidson. Even he was like Mike biker. Wow Yeah so. He's got a great big Harley Davis I I don't know if he still owns it or if it's I don't remember which pope it was. I don't remember I. Just don't have the Pope Cycle. Yeah Yeah I'll have to opt to dig into that too. Maybe you'd want one of the quick thing. Yeah we're talking about the volt. The Vault Rather. Yeah Volt. Not that one I remember that we talked about a car called the deal a long time ago. It was the big hoax car remember. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah the whole story. The twisted tale of we give away too much. I think. That's that's a saga though. Check that out. That's one of our one of the most fascinating episodes of Don I. I loved that episode of of those episodes. I should say it was so much fun to research that. It was just a blast. At the Peterson they own one of the Dale cars. So probably if if you were able to get down there in the vault. I'm sure that it was down there somewhere. If it it's one of those cars that I doubt they will ever let go of no. I don't think that they would well. It certain that no one's going to drive it off. It's one thing that we do know. Yeah that it will it will. It will never make its way under the Non TO LA freeways. Yeah not under its own power weird story be involved with one of the high speed chases that we see from the helicopters. It's not going to happen. There's another really wildcard there to the nineteen twenty-three maith on an V6 t bucket. This engine is insane. The v Sixteen did not miss speak was built in the early nineteen nineties. Even though the cars from the twenties they took to Chevy three fifty. V8's and join them together. At the crankshaft there were only two of these engines ever built an only one was ever installed in a car And the egg heads Peterson. Say based on what they know about it. Probably five hundred fifty horsepower. Five hundred fifty pound foot torque AIDS. It's a monster and of course as you can imagine that chassis is pretty stretched. This one thousand nine hundred. Nineteen ninety is when they customize the engine. The four t bucket was built in twenty three. Yeah Okay Gotcha okay. So it's on that body but you know what's funny? I find this a little bit funny. So they're here they are. They're Frankenstein together a couple of three hundred. V8's right and and it's cool. It's cool thing to do. It's a neat. You know the neat looking vehicle. I'm sure it has a certain appearance. It's really interesting and unique but think about this. There was five hundred fifty horsepower. And there's a pile of horsepower back. Then I think about like the first production viper was somewhere around four hundred horsepower but it seems like a lot of sedans now around four hundred horsepower. You know or or close to it or three fifty or whatever and you know you got some of these I I guess a lot of other performance Lines OF CARS. You know like maybe. Bmw's or relax or whoever you know. A lot of their top and vehicles are in the five hundred some horsepower. Shir range right now for production vehicle. So it's funny that you know they're doing that Back then they just. The idea was just go bigger with everything right. I mean what a cool design though to throw it on an old model t though and you know what I think. Unless I'm giving something away here Ben. The model t that we want to talk about. Right Mongrel T. Let's get to it you want to because this is one of the ones that you brought up in a previous episode. Ooh And almost with disbelief. We looked it up because we couldn't I. I can't picture ever seen this car before. But you had You've seen it so one of the exhibits one of them rotating exhibits at the Petersen Museum. The time I visited was that Hollywood dream machine exhibit these vehicles from science fiction and fantasy as you said Scott movie cars. The guy a delorean up there. They've got some stuff from blade runner. They've got two vehicles from mad. Max Fury Road. Yeah which we didn't episode on and there were fascinating to see up close. They're very dirty. And and one of the things that was really the star of the show for me. Were all these barest. Designed batmobiles mobiles embarrassed. I should say bat vehicles because there's a bad cycle there as well. I guess they decided to go with the bat cycle instead of the Pope Cycle. Stop you from of course I keep interrupting but oh please. These cars are so cool. The Bat cycle there's detachable go-cart in the passenger side like in the What do you call that the the site card sidecar that Robin would ride in that headed? Attachable go-cart that would launch out of the site. That is so cool thing. I think I'd say you guys pictures of it. Yeah that thing. What surprised me. Is that little go. Cart thing is so small that I've I haven't seen a bunch of the classic Batman episodes the Adam West area But I feel like that's even for such a can't be sure there's probably too ridiculous for him to really use it too often because you would have to the best way to describe how you would have to ride. That thing is to Crouch on your feet do what they call like the Slavic Squat slobs but yeah and then and then take your hands and put them flat on the ground in front of your feet. And that's about your footprints on the on the go. I will tell you the guy that played robin. His name's Burt Ward rights and he was not necessarily toys now is about five foot eight. Okay so he's a smaller guy. But I mean when you look at him. In those old Batman episodes. He's also very thin build so he's not very large person. They probably built it knowing that he would be able to do it. I don't think that I could fit on this thing. I don't. I'm not much taller him but I'm heftier. I'm a bigger person than burt ward was when he was in the Batman movies. I'm not slim like that but maybe it was built knowing that he'd be able to accomplish this too. But yeah you're right. It's it's nearly impossible thing to get on. I've I've seen promotional photos of him in that position. You're talking about like on the cart ready to go. I don't remember seeing an episode where he actually used it though. I saw a still photograph of him on it. Yeah I think probably something that you know. The Movie Production Company or the Movie House sent out as promotional material. Oh for sure yeah before we bury the lead. Here's why we're talking about this general. Sorry I I again I. I took us on the wrong power. No no this is perfect. Because we're still in the World Batman and I did not know this. I'm sure many of our Batman fans in the audience advance the bat fans right. Should they already? I'm sure you all already heard this. But apparently the joker hadn't official vehicle of his own the jokers answer to the batmobile and cap woman had her own cat mobile. The joker mobile makes no sense for the joker to have no. It really doesn't. It's it's unusual vehicle for sure. It's not on brands. It has this Mongrel t- heavily customized We're talking like this seat. Backs are surfboards It's a hot ride model. Tiv built in nineteen sixty six. And it's so strange. It looks more like something that would be a beach boys phil well. There's a good reason for that right. I mean we did then look up history this car because we were curious about what happened and I guess apparently You can jump in here any time but paramount pictures in nineteen sixty six. I got a call looking for a vehicle to go into an Elvis Presley movie..

"Do you remember that? No, remember this I got. To water the scene, I guess yeah, see what car was probably like an old diesel Mercedes or something like that was nice one. Yeah, so that's just one of the weird vehicles around the Peterson. Museum one thing that I thought guys are really enjoy is the nineteen twenty-seven Pedrozo. Do you know about this I do not so? Enlighten us, so here's the story back in the twenties. There's this obscenely wealthy Spanish guy. The Marquee had they're also, and he's living in. France and he decides to build his own sports car. Yeah, so he designs, and he actually does this. He designs a supercharge straight and he. Implements some pretty forward thinking innovations and he gets so excited again according to the story. That when he saw the car when he was getting close to building near running engine. Yeah, he just took to. From his porch. And put him on and took off their only two that were ever built. The only one that survived is at the Petersen Museum. He built I'm surprised that there were two built. You think it'd be just the one really I know. It was like It was just a rich Man's folly. wicker seats from the Front Porch. That's. got covered with canvas. Okay all right when he regained possession. That's crazy when Peterson Museum Gotham, they also receive full blueprints of the design so theoretically you could build another. Today if you want it, I. Don't think I want to okay well. Maybe maybe I mean I haven't seen the car, so maybe maybe I'll check it. We'll don't over commit yet. Because cars got some stuff. Unusually I guess I. Guess Wicker for a material. Isn't all that unusual. Yeah I mean. com his lightweight. It was it was durable are relatively durable. I should say but I mean just the idea of throwing the ones from the porch on car. That's strange and he has. Not Necessarily secured all that well I would believe probably strapped down. You know leather straps, or whatever, yeah, if that, but the thing that's different about the the thing that's different with wicker specifically is that wicker was used in automotive construction when there were many like custom coach builders. You know what I mean. Yeah, we talked about that before. Like the same people who build the furniture or like all right. Yeah, just bring the chassis of the car over. Why Not Yeah I? Mean and we see it on on even the exterior vehicles you know with late over with lacquer. Design elements. As beautiful beautiful designs. Come out of there that you know have. Stuff you'd never would see before you know at this point in time. You'd never seen anybody using wicker right now to build I, don't think yeah. I mean if there is somebody out there.

I don't think it was now. So that was one of the most impressive things. And it's really tempting when you're in one of these museums to get too close. Which is why they have. The museum minders their volunteers and so on. Yeah and it's strange because I'm the guy wants to look under the vehicle I want to look inside to see how the scene works out especially in some of those land speed record vehicles. Oh yeah like I figure out exactly what's going on under the skin of those things written. Yeah it's always fascinating and that's just one example. We get into some other exhibits but the museum itself has twenty five galleries storing well over a hundred vehicles in those galleries. And that's only half of the collection if that because in the basement there is a vault the vault if you pay a little bit extra or you have some connections and your life. I don't think they let kids in. I think eighteen or over. Yeah Yeah then you can go and view the vaults collection and no photographs and no photographs. Which is another tough thing to adhere to? Because you'll see some real gems down there I mean but they'll all eventually make themselves available on the floor. They'll cycle out they will but you're going to see some stuff down there that really surprising interesting. You know. Maybe even not fully restored yet. If they're working on them. You know the thing I love. I love seeing that. That's what I remember. We had a conversation. A longtime going back to Nashville. I guess on the Lane Motor Museum. Yeah Yeah just outside of Nashville. And that's one where you can get right around every you can get right up to the cars. There's no ropes. So as long as you don't touch you can lean you. Can even they even have the windows open on some? You can lean your head in if you want as long as you're holding your yourself backs your belts nut scraping anything or or right or whatever you carry. But they had a basement tour and it was fantastic. It was an extra few bucks to go in the tour and As some of the best things that I saw of that day were down in the basement still and I don't know what the what the thought was behind it. Why it was so exciting to see them down there like that. Then they're park just like it's in a parking structure. Were even tighter than that even. So they're very very close together and you don't get to see from all angles or get as close as you would but it's just exciting to see them not even displayed but to see them parked there like that this one. The Peterson There've been a lot of people that write blogs or online authors that write about their experiences down in the Peterson Vault. And you know what they've seen what they have encountered and I think wasn't there there was like one of Saddam Hussein's cars. I think was down there at one point. I believe you're correct Like one of those old really stately looking Mercedes vehicles you know that you can picture in dictator in there really. It's like a Mercedes Limo but it's like the old diesel. You know flat hood type vehicle. You know that's really big but elegant but also it now looks very very dated you know but you could definitely picture any kinda dictator riding around in the back but They've got some real treasuries down there. It's the one thousand nine hundred seventy eight Mercedes Benz. Six hundred yeah. It's probably still there if I had to guess unless they auction it. Offer something you know and this is interesting because these cars especially were mostly used by heads of state. Oh that's cool. They were like the cars of the ruling class picture that Hussein had his until lose overthrown thrown in two thousand and three. The car is not in perfect condition now and I would assume so. It has some dense in it because guards would sit around on the trunk and their rifle butts would hit the metal. That right I. I probably shouldn't be laughing at this. It's a dictator is car but I mean you can almost visualize this when you see especially if you see the car or if you know the car that we're talking about it just has that look it just has that old style dictator. This is the show is vehicle. I could own. Look you know and parade myself through town and you know kind of like a show of force you know. It reminds me a little bit of that scene in one of those Indiana Jones films where the Nazis were trying to bribe like A Middle Eastern ruler and they have gold and treasure and the guy doesn't care about that because they gotta Car. Do you remember that? No remember this I gotta fill the water the scene. I guess yeah see what car was probably like an old diesel. Mercedes or something like that was nice one.

It was an extra few bucks to go in the tour and as some of the best things that I saw of that day were down in the basement. Still and I don't know what the. What the thought was behind it why it was so exciting to see them down there like that then they're park. Just like it's an a parking structure were even. Tighter than that even. So they're very very close together, and you don't get to see the from all angles or get as close as you would, but it's just exciting to see them not even displayed, but to see them park there like that. This one, the Peterson there've been a lot of people that right you know blogs or online authors that write about their experiences down in the Peterson Vault, and you know what they've seen what they have encountered, and I think wasn't there. There was like one of Saddam Hussein's cars I think was down there at one point I believe you're correct. like one of those old, really stately looking Mercedes vehicles. You know that you can picture and dictator in. You know the really. It's like a Mercedes Limo, but it's like the old diesel. Flat Hood Type Vehicle. You know that's really big but elegant, but also it now looks very very dated. You know, but you could definitely picture any a dictator riding around in the back, but they've got some real treasuries down there. It's the one thousand nine, hundred, seventy, eight Mercedes Benz six hundred. Yeah, it's probably still there. If I had to guess unless they auction, it offer something you know, and this is interesting because these cars especially were mostly used by heads of state. Oh, that's cool. They were like the cars of the ruling class picture that. Hussein had his until lose overthrown overthrown in two thousand and three. The car is not in perfect condition now and I would assume so. It has some dense in it because guards would sit around on the trunk. And their rifle butts would hit the metal. That right I I probably shouldn't be laughing at this. It's a dictator is car, but I mean you can almost visualize this when you see especially if you see the car, or if you know the car that we're talking about it just has that look it just? Has that old style dictator this is. The show is vehicle. I could own. Look you know and parade myself through town. You know kind of like a show of force, you know. It reminds me a little bit of that scene. In one of those Indiana Jones films where the not Caesar trying to bribe a Middle Eastern ruler, and they have gold and treasure, and the guy doesn't care about that because they gotta car. Do you remember that? No, remember this I got. To water the scene, I guess yeah, see what car was probably like an old diesel Mercedes or something like that was nice one. Yeah, so that's just one of the weird vehicles around the Peterson. Museum one thing that I thought guys are really enjoy is the nineteen twenty-seven Pedrozo. Do you know about this I do not so? Enlighten us, so here's the story back in the twenties. There's this obscenely wealthy Spanish guy. The Marquee had they're also, and he's living in. France and he decides to build his own sports car. Yeah, so he designs, and he actually does this. He designs a supercharge straight and he. Implements some pretty forward thinking innovations and he gets so excited again according to the story. That when he saw the car when he was getting close to building near running engine. Yeah, he just took to. From his porch. And put him on and took off their only two that were ever built. The only one that survived is at the Petersen Museum. He built I'm surprised that there were two built. You think it'd be just the one really I know. It was like It was just a rich Man's folly. wicker seats from the Front Porch. That's. got covered with canvas. Okay all right when he regained possession. That's crazy when Peterson Museum Gotham, they also receive full blueprints of the design so theoretically you could build another. Today if you want it, I. Don't think I want to okay well. Maybe maybe I mean I haven't seen the car, so maybe maybe I'll check it. We'll don't over commit yet. Because cars got some stuff..

I don't know maybe vitamin full disclosure. You did come up with vitamin G off air and I think Kurt and I are both one hundred percent on board is just such a cool nickname and it's tough to make a good nickname. What about Special K? He got the drug that's attended. Who's angel is any way? Wait wait special. K is a drug. That was a breakfast. Cereal is it. It is okay. It's also kelloggs cornflakes. They call it Special K. Don't they yes? It's been confusing A lot of seedy drug deal. There's you know there's there's some guy the alley just trying to sell some Kellogg's everybody's disappointed but it's funny. It's like it's a it's a tiger as like a like a Bandanna on his all kind of scruffy looking like a horse voice has working for a while. Now I'm just kidding Tony. If you're listening to Mr Mr Tiger Alec on Mr Tiger. Yeah they had no disrespect meant. Are you saying that? Special cases like the that's been exhaustively killing whatever it is yeah. Special K is the unsweetened version. I think you're right instead of flakes no before we gentlemen before we begin today's episode. This is really important. Ben We can figure this out I to advance a era grievance about serial in specific and about food products. General as you know. I'm very food motivated person. I still have not gotten that party. Sub My girlfriend said it was ridiculous because they're apparently only two of US I. I texted her right after we did that. Previous episode anyway here. It is Do you guys remember raising brand the I do. is never a fan of raise brand two scoops of raisins. See here we go. Oh here we go at the heart of the problem. You cut to the quick. Oh I'm so sorry. This is perfect. You're you're saving his time because we shouldn't be nice about it. Have you ever heard of this thing called Shrink flation? No but I've never heard the term but I think I know what you're getting at so there are fewer and few like the price of a box of cereal is staying the same. Yeah the amount of cereal you get is dwindling but the boxes stay in the same size in the boxes same size okay just like When you see Maybe a can of your favorite beverage or something I know that the The curvature at the bottom of it has increased false bottom yeah by Candy Bars and you notice that they've they've literally like Cadbury Candy they've literally cut the corners yes to save. Eight percent of the chocolate would normally be used in the bar. Hi I'm trying to think of an example of this seems like there was an airline example this recently not recently. I shouldn't say catch this decades ago. Okay but when they used to serve inflate meals and I think it was something crazy like you know by not putting an olive on you know whatever. The Sandwich was a single oliver single slice of olive. This airline saved like a hundred thousand dollars a year. Something it was some crazy but it shows you the scale of what's A small change like that can mean to a big company. There we go. That's right we are going to segue. What about thank you for letting me complain about this I I've just been noticing it more and more. It's one of those things you can't unsee. Can I make one other food related Conway always? I'm looking at you right now. Yeah and you have a coca-cola Cola in front of you they do right here probably bottle right here in Atlanta if I had to guess not a Coca Cola commercial by the way but I but when I wanNA point out is The year using a paper Straw. And I l that's the the right thing to do apparently and I'm I'm not. I'm not on board with this whole thing. The texture bothers me immensely on 'em neither way and they fall apart. No no no. I'm saying like No. It's not one of those like like. I am upset by using it. I just can't use myself. I feel like they stick to my lips. They just feel weird. I don't feel like a straw supposed to feel so. I do tend to use a straw from drinking soda however when this whole Plastic Straw thing happened I get it. Get it you know. Do your best to make the world a better place and so on but the thing is that. The vast majority of plastic pollution in the ocean is coming from commercial fishing. It's not coming from UTAH. Johnny or gene America using plastic Straw when they go to McDonalds but we add our office. Now we only have paper straws. We don't have the flexible straws. Anymore is a shame. There's a superior Straw. Everybody loves the Bendy Strauss right. I mean I think everybody across the board. You know whether young you'll old you'll love the Bendy Straw so disappointing when you get one and you put it in the wrong way as we discover that it was the bendy one too late. I've done that before. Yeah it's worth worse but I've forgotten about the disappointment that leads to pointing. I guess if you do that like a milk shake or something. That'd be the worst you can't you can flip around if it's in water. Something fine guests. We can't be defined by our regrets. Taylor what do you say we talk about Him Museum today? How about that? Yes yeah okay so I've been As you as you guys know increasingly what twenty minutes into the episode? And maybe we'll talk about some cars today. I don't know I mean recently being Now in or current incarnation of car stuff. I'm increasing finding myself being a on. The road correspondent yeah awesome. Yeah that's great. I love being able to do this. A love being able to find these amazing museums. These amazing stories. A lot of stuff Scott that you and I have been talking about for years. I love being able to go there in person. Recently I was stranded in Los Angeles due to a series of cartoonish and In retrospect hilarious circumstances and I finally you know I did that thing where I was thinking stuck here. I'm I'm going to be here for a day. That don't have I don't have a ton of stuff planned So I can either just wander. The streets should do often or I could do something productive which I do less often so so I finally did it. I took you up on recommendation from years ago and I went to visit the Peterson Museum. Fantastic and what was your impression the very moment you walk into that museum because it does make an impression immediately. Yeah Oh man it hit me before it hit me before I walked in because I I got a sense of the scale of the building. Like we've all seen the pictures you heard. It didn't really hit me. How large the museum actually is has kind of a funky designed doesn't it? I mean like really rounded. It's not it's not squared off in any way. It's IT'S A. It's a very free form very organic looking building with There's like red. I think red accent behind it. Or that's maybe just lighting that they could change. I don't know I can't remember but it's metal on the outside very striking building design just as you approach the building but then when you go inside once you're in a renovated version which we'll talk about renovation and all that right through here hazard that's part of the The history of the building itself which is a. It's got like a semi historic built in writing in dot in Los Angeles But When you right when you walk in I mean you know you're in for something special here. At the EH Peterson Museum. Yep absolutely and it was a lot to Take in because when I walked in. I thought okay. This'll be speak pretty simple. I just there's probably a point as start at two point zero debt or whatever but the way. The museum is laid out is in terms of rotating exhibits And some permanent collections. They also have a they also have a vault which really sport later. Yeah I know what you and I talked about on the previous episode but this is not fully one of the largest automotive museums in the world. So this is a museum that you could go back to a few months later and reasonably encounter all new vehicles. Isn't that crazy? I mean with the rotation of the vehicles that we'll talk about you know there's there's several that are rotated in and out they. Have you know other exhibitions that go on at the time? So there's there's like this endless supply of variety that they can throw out there. You know that they can. They can mix and match these things together how they would like and put together collections. That either make sense or are very eclectic or you know whatever they want and they also bring in you know Special Exhibitions. That are of course more focused. You know but only lasts for a short amount of time. So if you're fortunate enough to be able to go there you're able to catch those things but They do have a lot of. I guess I'll call them resident vehicles that they can bring in and out that do live in that volt in and that they do throw on the floor but I would bet that you know I went to the Museum. Fort Forty years ago something like that. Yeah and you went just recently but I would bet that you saw very few of the same vehicles that I saw on the floor. Yeah Yeah there was Let's see so. They had the Hollywood dream machines that was one of their big ones. And that was the one. Actually the most mixed feelings about this is this is like the movie cars right. Exactly exactly. So you'll see some batmobiles you'll see some George barris design tonight. I love that topic And then they had Disruptors they had some motorcycle design. That a lot of racing Like groundbreaking racecars is Bruce. Meyers exhibit of these epic Race Cars. Ten of them from nineteen twenty nine to nineteen seventy-nine and it's stunning. We're talking about historically important. Cars like the first production Shelby Cobra from sixty to cool the greer black PRUDHOMME dragster also from sixty to this one. One two hundred and thirty seven of the two hundred and forty one races. It Ran Bo under you know driven by Don prudhomme The snake yeah and they had a Bonneville Racer the twenty nine Ford some forty-seven. I'm sorry. I'm still laughing at the snake nickname. That's a that's a great nickname to greet nick combine. It depends on who you are. Yeah well yeah I guess so but if you drag racer I mean that's a cool navy drag racer did you. Can rationally support being called the snap here in the office. I wouldn't want to be called the snake like like. Oh they're Scott. He's the sneaky snake. Yeah I think it's different when you're when you're nickname inserted between the first and last name as if it were a middle name if you were called snake like yea Nay Garin or snake Bolan. That's a good puzzle different. You know maybe like don the snake per dome. Yeah sure different than snake. Predom- you're right. It is like his parents might have Named him snake bit. But you know you'd always question that you is wonder unless you ask the man himself so I don't WanNa ask snake if it's right up there with what's what's your whole deal. What's your thing about? Chances of. I'm telling you are slim to none. I don't know maybe snakes dude I just. I have a thing with nicknames after.

Dodgers complete deal for Betts, Price
"Hairston junior of course former major league player world champion with the Yankees And of course the dodgers address analysts for Spectral Sports Net L. A. Jerry. Welcome to the PODCAST. How you doing very well very well? Yes on in Wednesday afternoon four o'clock eastern time. The big press conference at Dodger Stadium. Yes mookie Betts and David price coming to Los Angeles. I know you got to like train and your thoughts. I'm extremely excited. You know the dodgers the last few years. I've put themselves in position to possibly win a world series. It hasn't happened but I really believe adding guy like Mookie Betts in my opinion five baseball ballplayer all in all the major leagues. Excellent top of the order hitter. You know I think this is. He's kind of like the generations. Ricky Henderson excellent speed is they're gonNA NOT GONNA steal a hundred thirty basis because nobody does that anymore really. Nobody did that with ricky played But he gives you speed at the top power A great outfielder in right field. And you put him in the lineup with next month cody bellinger Justin Turner And so on and so forth this is arguably the best lineup and all of baseball and then add to This dodge rotation healthy David Price. Who Brings in championship type pedigree and I really believe? He's GonNa be pitching with a chip on his shoulder. I'm having something to prove the season so I'm excited for the dodgers and the city of La. Jerry dodgers needed a good right handed bat. That lineup is loaded with lefties. This bets bets is going to help that isn't he. Absolutely you know anytime you get a chance to Have the best players in all of baseball. And you're on your lineup. She'd He'd be in your lineup. It's GONNA help but you're always looking for balance and you know like you mentioned. The dodgers were heavy left handed The last two years with Jock Petersen Jason Cory seager cody bellinger Max money. There's nothing wrong with having left handed power but you WANNA kinda offset that a little bit especially with the emergence of Gavin Luxa the new Start second base going to the dodgers have. He's a left handed batter. So you WanNa make sure you balanced when you're facing writings and left these Throughout the season the playoffs so why not not get arguably the best right handed hitting outfielder outside of my trout in base going. That's looking back and Jerry. You don't look at this as as has some sort of rental you don't make a trade for guy player like Mookie Betts and not be willing to sign this guy who can be a free agent. After next year you fully the expect. The dodgers to ante up and paid has got to be a dodger for a long time. Don't you absolutely I liken this to like an Anthony Davis you you know you. Trade for Anthony Davis get him in the fold let them see. La Let him be Laker and see how great it is to be living in La very similar with mookie Betts. You get him over here here. Let them play in this ballpark. Be a dodger Every day Get accustomed to you know the lifestyle. LA which. Really second to none. Being in the bright lights of Hollywood. I I think he's going to love it here and WanNa sign back and certainly. The dodgers have the resources to sign a guy like me or about so. Hopefully he's comfortable here which I think he will be. And we'll love to play here because everybody played here including myself has a loved. But I'm not putting on that dodger. Blue Guess on inside the park a podcast is of course Jerry Hairston junior former major league player and analyst for the dodgers in their TV broadcasts The other part is MOOKIE BETTS AND PRICE COM from Boston and they're under a cloud of suspicion. They're under investigation for what went down with their ex manager. Now Alex Cora and the dodgers chargers got a bronco event they lost in the world series in two thousand eighteen to the red sox. Where do you make of that? Where Mookie Betts and David Price could possibly be implemented uh implicated and talk about that they took part in what could wind up being yet? Another cheating scandal baseball. Well you know what I've heard it. You know before the the commissioner ruled on the Astros. We'd heard rumblings for a couple of weeks. What was coming down the road and we knew it was pretty pretty bad We know that the commission she's GonNa ruin the red SOx pretty pretty quickly. That's what we're hearing And we've also heard it's not nearly as bad as the Astros so I'm kind of banking on that anytime you play a team in the world series and the Super Bowl or the or the NBA finals. You WanNa make sure both sides are on the up and up. And I'm hoping that was the case with the with the Red Sox I'm hoping Alex Cora bidding implement everything that he has with Houston in Boston but that's yet to be seen But you know now that is the guys like Bats and David Price on the fold You gotta wait and see. I'm hoping they weren't a part of it. Obviously David price being a pitcher. Sure certainly wasn't that part of it because it was on the offensive side of the ball. And I'm hoping mookie wasn't in wasn't a part of that as well so that's got to be seen Bob Open for the good in
Washington coach Jimmy Lake makes first major staff changes
"The new husky football coach already making big changes couples bill sports is talking dogs Washington sent out its senior class and head coach Chris Petersen with a dominating thirty eight to seven Las Vegas bowl victory over Boise state Peterson was asked whether he expected offense of style changes under his successor Jimmy lake though they'll they'll take the next step will figure he'll figure out what he needs to do and tweet the offense and there's a lot of fire power you know sitting there to it it'll get better on Sunday the new head man lake announced he would not retain offense of coordinator bush Hampton or tight ends coach Jordan pow pow much of what lake in the Huskies do next season depends on whether they have Jake up Easton playing quarterback or a youngster with little to no college game experience eastern is weighing the pros and cons of jumping to the NFL draft conversation with mine my family in this coach is an understatement and figure out the right now no surprise for this team and and now offers really happy with the way we finish the season
Early Bowl Games, CFB Playoff & a Conversation with Jim Delany
"Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel L.. Joined by Bruce Feldman for our Christmas week episode Bruce a really special guest Pleased to have the outgoing big ten commissioner Jim Delaney on this show here a little bit. He is down to his last ten days or so on the job. But I How is your house your viewing experience first weekend of Bowl Games? It was good I got to see most of the Games. It was one thing I'll say is it was three. NFL Games. That ran on Saturday in those games. Were more competitive Than some of the bowl games I gotTA admit You know hats off to Fau. They had a coaching change and even without the coaching change. I think a lot of people would have thought okay. You have a bigger group of five really good team. SMU AGAINST A smaller group of five and it turned out to be a blow out but not the way. Yeah probably a lot of us would have expected so hats off to the owls. I thought that was a real head-turner The other one that jumped out at me. I think is Kent State it considering how bad that program was Not long ago I mean Sean. Lewis has stepped up there and really made a a huge impact. They are a fun team to watch they at their first bowl win in school history On the first first day of the bowl games it was one of those reminders of what I think because they had to really scrap just to get to be bowl eligible. I think that they are a great example of Y. No there aren't too many bowls it's five hundred team that got into a bowl game. They were impressive how they handled it. And it means a ton to that program Graham and I think Those players deserve the spotlight. Yeah I got that one wrong. I picked Utah State to win by like thirty. Whoops that's bowl season for ya the SMU ONE SMU Fau? Definitely surprise me as well. I think that that. SMU's one of those teams that got a lot the hype because they were doing things they hadn't done a long time and then it just kind of unraveled You know their their signature win was TCU and then TCU doesn't end up making a ballgame So hey that crazy shootout with memphis though You know it's interesting. There was a time when everybody was lobbying for their respective team. Conference for the Group of five New Year six bowl and Michael Rescue was furious that at one point. SMU is ranked behind Appalachian State. Obviously Mountain West. People were furious. That Boise State didn't get more credit Compared to the AC and then both SMU eastbound Boise State Mountain West Champ gets blown out by Washington honestly a Washington team. That wasn't all that great this year but I felt like nick and kind of I think you had the same hunches. Well and Chris Petersen's last game that they would. They would come to play and they did. That was a Thorough domination and now we all wait to see what Jacobson do. Yeah look I mean this is now Jimmy Lakes program. There's already been a little staff shakeup. Bush Hamden the offense coordinator. WHO's there for two seasons? He is already out as well as One other offense of assistant so one thing to keep an eye on and I'm GonNa have a story on this on the athletic Later this week is there's a lot of sizeable offensive coordinator vacancies out there. So Bunch in the PAC twelve oregon is looking for an offense coordinator as his Washington. As is cal- I think there's going to be quite a few more coming There's you know look. There could be a few big ones in the south as well as the ones that already have had coaching changes. This is where they're looking for guys so it's an interesting subplot to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks Again as we mentioned a few weeks back You you know. We both have a lot of respect for Chris. Peterson thought it was cool. To see the way he went out We'll see if he ever comes back to coaching or what he does next. He's somebody I would. I'd love to have on the podcast at some point down the road Just because I always thought he was one of the more interesting people in coaching even though sometimes he didn't always WanNa show oh you his hand publicly so hats off to him stew before we get to Jim Delany though This is probably our only chance to restore at least on the audible to talk about the semi final games. And you'd think it feels like they're way off in the distance but as we're taping this They're less than a week away. feels like the right up on us. Does I mean to me. The teams arrived working on this part on Sunday night and the teams arrived. I think a couple of them at least arrived in Phoenix already. It's nuts it's It's playoff semi final week already. So how do you break this down. I know you didn't want to tip your hand on what was going on especially in Europe ballgame. You're going to be covering the one in Phoenix covering the one Atlanta for the athletic. So Oh
"petersen" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"What up world. Welcome in an onto another episode of the Ocho presentative in partnership as has always been nations blogging the boys dot com are Joe of course from bt be an from writer as humble host on the Ocho it is Tuesday December number third two thousand and nineteen. I've been saying a lot lately. I guess my brain isn't ready for it to be December this in spite of the fact that I've been listening to Christmas music. Can there's Christmas decorations up at my house. Everywhere I go so you would think that my brain would have adjusted by now however that is clearly not the case but it is Tuesday okay and we are about forty eight hours out from the Dallas cowboys getting set in their week. Fourteen matchup on the road against the Chicago Bears It's going to be cold. It's going to be chilly. I've been to December game at soldier field and it was definitely a very windy You know they should call the city something to do with win too because it's got a bit of a reputation tation but a lot happened on Monday with regards to the cowboys. WE'RE GONNA get into it all here in a second quick reminder. Do make sure that you have subscribes to the dog of the boys podcast to make sure you're you're getting all of our episodes from all of our shows. We have four shows that you get down to beat podcast feed obviously the Ocho with myself. You get the 750 with me and two time superbowl champion. Tony Casillas Star with Connor Dalton. Coal you get bruising. The boys with sizemore and Tom Riley you get at least one Dallas cowboys related episode every day. The OCHO is always ready for you as soon as your morning begins whether it's on the road work on the way to class in the gym. Whatever you're doing we know that you want to be talking in in discussing the Dallas cowboys so we make sure you're ready to do that so Monday? Kind of had a huge headline that kind of had nothing to do with the Dallas cowboys. A lot of you you obviously Love College football and you have your team. I'm fighting Texas Aggie so not a great week But however your three Jimbo bounce back Baylor. The University of Washington head coach. Chris Peterson announced on Monday that he will be stepping down from the program following the Huskies Bowl game now On the Saturday morning hangover that I co host with James Pledge on Espn San Antonio we hit kind of picked Washington to be sort of a team that we believed in or at least I believed in in pledge believed in the cougs But Chris Peterson is a really well respected coach in the college football world and he really rose to prominence for a lot of cowboys always fans and specifically with the Dallas Cowboys During his time. Ed Boise State. That's right Boise. State has played a huge factor in in the Dallas cowboys growth of their organization. Obviously lots of players for the obvious have played at Boise. You can go way back Orlando scheduled went to Boise State. Tyrone Crawford went to Boise. State demarcus Lawrence Lane Vanish Cedrick Wilson. And of course Kellen Moore Dallas Cowboys Offense Coordinator Colin more one of the greatest quarterbacks in college football history was up for the heisman trophy. Once upon a time he went and started at Boise State University and played pretty well under your head coach at the time. Chris Peterson. That's right a lot of people have been of the belief that if the Dallas cowboys are looking for a new head coach in two thousand and twenty needed Chris. Peterson's name could be in the running. I gotTA give a lot of credit to friend of the show bobby belt from NFL network. He was the first person to kind of connect these dots. And we were talking about this on the podcasts. He does with Jane. Slater the boys and a girl podcasts. Last week Chris Peterson is a name that makes a lot of sense the cowboys don't just love Boise players. They don't just love this system. That more has been placed out. They love the culture. They're Chris Peterson built. And you know that culture is a big thing with regards to the Dallas cowboys now. I know that a lot of people people think that if the cowboys Duma von from Jason Garrett they'll be looking to make a big splash hire a big name. Chris Peterson obviously is an urban meyer in that respect but he would be a big name now. It should be noted that in all of the you know aftermath of Chris Petersen's decision. It was announced that he would be staying on with the University of Washington in an advisory as we roll. I think the best com for that is probably Bob Stoops at the University of Oklahoma. You think about it in in Bob Stoops got back into game right. Douse renegades anybody. But I don't know I don't know what this is. It could just be a coincidence. Could nappy but Chris Peterson will seemingly be available to some degree. Three in two thousand and twenty if the Dallas cowboys are interested. I don't know you know it would be strange in. It's weird because I think a lot of people would actually enjoy this but it'll be strange if the cowboys let's be hypothetical say they move on from Jason. They probably WANNA keep killing more right like we all agree you know. The offense for the cowboys has been humming at times is the season. Obviously it's struggled in touchdown against the patriots etc.. But if the cowboys kept calling more you wouldn't be too bothered right right okay. Now it would be weird to say. Hey Chris Peterson income. Be Our head coach. We've already got this offense coordinator ready for you and that would be weird. Because that's exactly what they did with Jason Garrett the cowboys if you don't remember remember or maybe you do member and kind of blow some some dust off that file on your brain the Dallas Cowboys Jerry. Jones Hired Jayson Gary in two thousand seven seven to be his offensive coordinator before he hired Wade Phillips as head coach. It's not often that a head coach walks into a situation where the offensive coordinators already set. Typically guy wants to bring his own guys but Jason Garrett was sort of the guy that Jerry Jones believed could be his head coach of the future that was true in the literal sense although as we sit here today. December thirty two thousand nineteen gene is almost nine full years of Jason Garrett and no super bowls to show for it so that would be strange. You're telling you that. A former Dallas cowboys quarterback is early early on into his coaching career. A quarterback by the way that number seventeen for the team as a backup quarterback to he would be the offensive coordinator that you leave in place for the new head coach. It's a lot. aww coincidences in a weird way. That Jason greer would kind of be Wade Phillips in that scenario with Kellen Moore being his Jason Girl but we'll see still four games left in the regular season. It does kind of feel actor cabbage. They're going to win the NFC so who knows that obviously starts on Thursday in Chicago The injury report support for this week. came out on Monday. Monday's injury report and remember. Monday is kind of or was kind of like Thursday for the cowboys because of the way the week's work they're gone for Thursday Thursday Thursday practice. So here is your injury report from Monday's practice for the Chicago bears. You knew this week I was going to say a thousand times you had to have have known Prince Amukamara no practice in fact all these players know practice for Chicago Ben Bronco Tight End Taylor. Gabriel wide receiver. Still dealing with a concussion bobby massie ask the offensive linemen and Danny Trevathan has an elbow injury. So no practice no practice for the following cowboys. Randall Cobb sided with an illness. No practice for Jeff. He still has the shoulder issue. That kept out of the Thanksgiving Day game. No practice for Antoine Woods. Obviously still dealing with that knee injury and no practice for Leyton Vandereycken. One of the aforementioned mentioned Boise state players has that neck injury. We have no idea. We're going to be late in Vandross. You'RE GONNA know you're getting scared and now you're getting into you. Want to see him. Limited participation for the following following Dallas. Cowboys Michael Bennett. Has a foot injury. Lyle Collins has a knees Sean Lee with pictorial injuries. When he's listed as although Sean Lee is kind have managed on this sort of vet planted a cowboys? Rolla Zack Martin's Elbow Angle. Tyron Smith sided with an Achilles injury on Mondays injury.

Those players were limited only two players listed on the injury report with Full Participation Byron Jones With a hip injury has I know tasted here and Amari Cooper with a knee injury now.

I don't WanNa be that guy that drops the tea's like they do on the radio and stuff we do that from time to time on. ESPN SAN ANTONIO. But I'm going to be that I right. I don't want to be but sometimes you have to be there. We have some things to discuss with regards to a Marian barone as well as our thoughts on the injury front out of before we do all of that.

Hollywood Dream Machines exhibit explores sci-fi vehicles used on screen
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by the Michigan economic Development Corporation, John Rimini, founder and CEO at airspace. Experienced technology says in Michigan revolution is in the air. Find out what planet is doing to help businesses make that possible at planet m dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E T, M dot com. To solve the scourge of the car. Maybe we have to go back back to the future from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Jack Stewart info. Molly would. The future of causes always exciting and always just around the corner. Things like self driving cars have been five years away, for I'd say about forty years now, but there are times when pure imagination is exactly what's needed when vehicles have to be as out there as possible nearly incredible. 'cause or a big part of science fiction TV shows and movies. They're often characters themselves, and someone has to make them I went to see some of the creations of writers directors and designers at a new exhibition at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles. It's called Hollywood dream machines. And there cause from Mad Max Bladerunner and the classic Star Wars amongst others. Brian Stevens is exhibition director at the museum, and he started by explaining how a car designer works with a filmmaker in the use of vehicles in Hollywood productions. There are a number of scenarios, one of, which is the need to design a car from scratch to fulfill the vision of the producers of the directors of the film, in many. Cases though. There are pre existing cars that do just that and there's no need to design a car from scratch, and when it came time to create back to the future just so happened, that this very exotic wild stainless steel bodied car existed. In fact, was very much in the public eye. Do some lawsuits at the time which which made it a perfect option for this particular use in this particular film. Doc. Are you telling me that you built a time machine? The way I see it if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it from style now that we are up close, I can see. There are a lot of wires zip ties parts that look almost unfinished. Yes. Which is deliberate in this case, the producers and directors of the film didn't want something polished, they wanted something that looked like it was handmade in a garage. So you worked with designers of some of these actually put this exhibit together. How important, did they say it is to be accurate as opposed to just be entertaining when the coming up with these visions of the future. I think it's a combination of both if you're projecting fifty years in the future. I think accuracy is, is going to be difficult to achieve, regardless of what you what you propose, but they certainly do want some level of realism when you start getting into science fiction films as opposed to Pierce to pure fantasy films. You do want there to be an element of science basis, you want there to be something that seems even somewhat. Ause -able about what you're predicting. So you have kit here, for example, from Knight rider from what the voice of industry thousands microprocessor K IT for easy reference. A can't. If you prefer, do you think that, that was fully autonomous long before most of us had heard of even the concept of self driving, 'cause it's a 'cause like that an inspiration to real engineers and real designers, I think there's no question that when today's designers were children, watching these television shows in these movies that they are even potentially subconsciously gaining inspiration from what they see. And that's probably part of why we see some of the technologies that are shown in these vehicles. Eventually become real Brian Stevens, taking us on a semi nostalgic semi futuristic, look at the cause of Hollywood at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles, fun facts. I learned from him in the early drafts of the back to the future. Script the time machine wasn't built into a cholera toll. It was built into refrigerator. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the movie. Quite as much. And now for some related links. Check out the exhibition website if you want some inspiration for movies have been Joan this holiday. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed some of them the Audi r s q concept from I robot made me want to watch that all over again. And I will be streaming the original Bladerunner as well as twenty four thousand nine to see that vision of Los Angeles with spinners in the dark and rainy skies in terms of making these sci-fi visions come true.
