Virgil and the Funeral for a Bug

"Was a poet who lived in the first century. Bc e during the the augusta periods of early imperial room and You might know him best from his most famous work the epic poem the aeneid which is about sort of the founding lineage of rome and the adventures of the trojan hero aeneas who after the trojan war travels from troy and eventually becomes the ancestor of the roman people Virgil is often considered one of the greatest latin poets and he was wildly popular during his own lifetime You know he. He received commendations from from kings and the wealthy. And and you know everybody thought like this. This guy is just got the juice. And i had virgil on my mind A lot last year. Because rachel and i were re-reading dante's divine comedy. And if you'll recall of course virgil is the pilgrims guide through hell and purgatory and the divine comedy so the spirit of virgil. He's been living out the centuries in limbo because Though he was a very virtuous man he's one of the virtuous pagans. He was never baptized as a christian. So he can't go to heaven he's got a hang out in this sort of antechamber of hell where everybody sits around sighing. Because interesting has ever happening to them. I have to admit that. I tend to when anybody mentions virgil. That's the first place. My mind goes is dante's inferno which is probably not fair. It's like if you were to mention the name of socrates and there was someone were to go. Yeah yeah he's in bill and ted's excellent adventure that's exactly eighty nine. That's exactly where i knew you were going with the villain ted. Yeah yeah the that is pretty good because though it slightly different because it's not a it's not at all parodied in the divine comedy. In fact i would say it's exactly the opposite in the divine comedy. He is he is revered. Yeah yes he. He's reimagined as this like superhuman wizard. For for dante he Virgil is the embodiment of wisdom and reason so for the intended readers of the divine comedy. We're supposed to understand that. Virgil is like a ten out of ten platinum level. Cool be st is just like this ultimate wizard of knowledge and about half of the state you remember. How like basically every other time. Dante talks in the first two books of the divine comedy. It's just to say like virgil you are so right. I would never doubt your wisdom. Tell me more you know and it kind of stinks then. Because i remember when we got to the end of the purgatory and virgil does not get to move on to heaven with dante. He has to stay behind and be beatrice takes him on from there. We're really mad. That virgil didn't get to go to heaven. Yeah yeah no. I mean so much so much time is devoted to him. It also much stripped away at that point. You know. it's like if it's hard to follow dante in into paradise just because you know that there aren't going to be any demons playing trumpets with their bombs or anything there's gonna be Monsters so much and virgils not gonna be there. So it's it's part. Three in a series is always tough. Yeah i agree. Yeah the the trilogy is a hard sell to to complete with dignity. And but i think for modern readers that sense of injustice about virgil that is interpreted by the characters in the inferno as you know perfect divine justice. It's the one person version of the dynamic that plays out throughout the whole thing whereas they're going through hell it just seems like wow. This is really unfair. Yeah but anyway long. Before virgil was guiding dante up the mountain of purgatory in his post mortem shade form people were telling lots of legends about his life and one of those legends. Is that once at his home. In rome virgil built a tomb and held an extravagant funeral for a dead fly. Like a fly as in the insect with six legs and wings This story is very probably untrue. And we'll get to why. That is in a bit. But i i wanted to explore some of the details and for this. I was reading an article by george pendle in cabinet magazine. In two thousand seven called virgils fly and he describes the legend in the following way quote held in the grounds of virgils home on rome's esquel line hill. The funeral attracted the great and good of the city. Dirges were sung and tributes read virgils. Patron my sinus delivered. A lengthy and moving eulogy to the departed insect and virgil was himself said to have uttered a few of his exquisite versus over the tiny carcass tomb had been erected and the lifeless body of the fly was placed within it to the whales and moen's of the professional mourners so lavish where the commemorations that the cost was estimated at over eight. Hundred thousand sister. She's so that's the gist. According to the story virgil and his close friends spend huge amounts of money and effort to celebrate the life in memory of an insect concluding with the insects burial in a marble tomb. Why on earth would this be. Well the legend itself also contains an answer to this so to read from pendle again quote but the reason for the funeral was not due to extravagance interest or even emotion. Having defeated julius. Caesar's assassins at the battle of philip pie. The second triumvirate was at that very moment. Engaged in confiscating the states of the rich and dividing them among the war veterans returning from the battlefield only one exception was given if the estate held a burial plot. It was not to be touched by burying his housefly. Virgil saved his house.

Dr Katz When we went to break we're about to talk about the founding up North Way discussed the laws of Virginia three weeks ago. People who go and listen to that. That's England transplanted. What is it that the pilgrims had in mind? And when did the Pilgrim's become the Puritans? And how did they diverge? And when does the Salem compact come into this conversation? Well, I think it's important to understand that James, the first of England was really attempting to create a culture built around the Church of England. Andre English, Christianity on and then what happened in the midst of that was that you have two ends of a spectrum kind of cut off from from inclusion in that one are the Puritans on one side, the other are those who choose to hang on to their Catholicism's And on the product inside the Puritans and the pilgrims were ones who really struggled with this idea of being you know, essentially forced into into the Church of England. The Pilgrim's being separatist left first went to the Netherlands and, um, realize that their Children were becoming Dutch more than they leaving behind English tradition. So what's very interesting about the pilgrims? And then the Puritans that followed them is that they were very much you know, Uh, Honoring the King and stand and Parliament of England. But they did struggle with the religious, um, on church structure that had been established. And so the pilgrims ended up coming to the northern colonies and the pilgrims being much more separatist, much more distinct in their attempt. T O be separate from the Church of England, the Puritans who came after them and again. There's a lot of discussion is how one really makes a distinguished distinguishes between these two groups. The Puritans. Many of them were from London. Many of them were involved in commerce and business. Many of them had been trained at Cambridge University, Cambridge University in that at that time, tend to be the kind of intellectual center Puritanism. And what they wanted to do in this new colony or new colonies in the north was to really establish Christian Republic, Um, still under, um You know the King and Parliament of England but to establish a kind of government again, As I said earlier, that might Be a a model for how Christians would live with and among one another, they established the first university in the colonies, Harvard University.

"Thomas becket yes okay. Born around eleven twenty and died in eleven seventy. he's also known as saint thomas of canterbury or Sometimes who refer to him as thomas a becket. Okay yeah anyway. So thomas becket. He is venerated as a saint and martyr by both the catholic church and the anglican church He engaged in conflict with henry. The second king of england over the rights and privileges of the church and at one point excommunicated the archbishop of york so tough rain away to france for a bit under the protection of king. Louis the seventh of france but then he returned in eleven seventy two england so henry second in england said something to the effect of like ugh. This guy is driving me. Four of his knights interpreted this as a command to go. Get rid of thomas becket So on december twenty ninth seventy reginald fitz ertz huge morville william to tracy and richard le breton showed up at canterbury cathedral. According to accounts left by the monk jer vase of canterbury and i witnessed named edward grim. The knights placed their weapons under a tree outside the cathedral and hid their chainmail armor on your cloaks before entering the cathedral to challenge becket priest the night. He's hold beckett. They were taking him to winchester england to give count of all of his actions and kind of like hold him accountable in front of people but becket refused so the four nights retrieved their weapons and rushed back inside the cathedral. Oh my god. I beckett proceeded to the main hall for evening prayers and the other monks tried to like themselves into different parts of the joe for get said to them. It is not right to make a fortress out of the house of prayer in order them to reopen the doors so the four nights wielding they're drawn swords ran into the room saying like thomas becket. He's a traitor. To the king the knights found beckett in his spot near the door of the monastic cloister the stairs into the crypt and the stairs leading up to the choir of the cathedral where the monks were all. They're like still saying their prayers. Like oh no right. There's just four guys having running in with okay upon seeing them becca. I am no traitor. And i'm ready to die so Edward grandma eyewitness. He wrote a very extensive account of exactly what happened. I will save you all the details. Let's just say that for nights wielding swords kill the priest in canterbury cathedral. That's terrible so soon. After his death the faithful throughout europe european venerating beckett as a murder in february eleven seventy three which was just a little more than two years after his death. He was canonized by pope. Alexander the third and so sure typically like canonization of saints takes lake decades. Yeah stuff happened so the fact that this happened so quickly was kind of saying that. This guy was a big deal. So related trivia. Facts about thomas becket. Geoffrey chaucer's the canterbury tales. Ninety two is set in a company of pilgrims on their way from southern to the shrine of saint. Thomas becket in canterbury cathedral. Okay never made that connection no me neither ever okay So the schreiner was built between eleven eighty and twelve twenty and up to one hundred thousand. Pilgrims would have visited the shrine every year for more than three hundred years. That's my gosh locked. Yes it was adorned in marble gold and jewels and murdered saints. Tombs was one of unparalleled splendor in fifteen thirty eight. during the reformation. The shrine was destroyed following the orders of henry. The eighth who definitely be talking about in a little bit more twenty. Twenty researchers digitally reconstructed the raised sanctuary and available to view on the beckett story online and we'll share linked to that because it's really interesting how they did that. They took This thing had been such a big deal for more than three hundred years. And then it was raised more than four hundred and fifty plus years ago at this point and so they took accounts that the pilgrims had made that other monks had made in in digitally recreated which is pretty up and also modern works based on the story of thomas becket include. Tes elliott's nineteen thirty. Five play murder in the cathedral later adapted the opera assassination cutter. Dry ill the brando pizza'd in nine hundred fifty eight. You did that. Can i tell you flawlessly Also nineteen fifty-nine play by John we called beckett which was made into a movie with the same title and paul. Webb's play four nights in nair's borough which was written in one thousand nine hundred nine which recounts the aftermath of the murder of thomas becket by the four nights who made the worst career choice in history. Yeah that's goes without saying well if you don't if all of these facts don't stick in your head. Look at the name k. e. t. the cane. His name is right in the middle. And if you look at it. It looks like four blades. Good the name so four blades. Stuck together by the four to killed him in canterbury. That's thomas becket.

The Years (plural) Without A Christmas

"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you

"The thing that felt important to me to understand about that moment over time is that like yes. That doesn't make you good on your own. You can still be pretty selfish and thoughtless. Even if you're not a super villain right. Glenn i have a question for you which is as our foremost chronicler of nerd culture as somebody who has watched the sort of steady progression of how things like comic and video games. And you know. Fantasy and sci fi stories have sort of moved in and out of the center of culture. Did you have a reaction at the time to where this fit on that time line. Because we're not quite at the moment yet where it's just be central tentpole of everything where there is like an empire of like superhero content that just popping propping up half of hollywood at this point did it feel ahead of its time. Did it feel stuck out of time. What how did it strike you. It felt at the time like the best comic book movie i had seen. The pickings were pretty slim back then. Still but i mean you know the thing about nerd. Culture is that it represents when the things it loves get popular but it also for it to happen. That's all they want to happen is for the thing. They love to become like football but when it does they react and so. That's why the fact that a lot of these references in this book in this movie are so niche and so specific to manga martial arts films especially video games that was a selling point to the geeks and may be one of the things that made it harder. Sell in the movie to the mainstream america at the time. I think this movie comes out. Now you change some stuff about some of the characterizations. But i think a more people would get it now. It's true it's very canadian into stardom in presence. Nothing to too big yup but at the same time. It's not afraid to be big and over the top. I mean my issues with like the dragon. Sonic waves aside. That scene is just so fun to watch. This movie is just so fun to watch like as much as i was. You know kind of grumbling about scott being the worst the whole time when those jokes land they land so well and it still makes me feel that kind of excitement about the manga and video games. That i grew up loving. And it's still fun to see. Like oh i get that reference re watching. This movie made me think a lot. About how i feel. Like ensemble films aren't as good anymore. Like in the sense that everyone is doing what they need to do. Like what cure in kokin. Especially as wallace. Which i mean. I've always loved him. he's great. I watch comedies now. Kind of just been doing research on like how comedies have changed in the last ten years and i noticed that like more often. Now it's like a bunch of famous people and the hope that they will have chemistry whereas like scott pilgrim into a bunch of people who weren't really famous and they just trusted the they were going to have chemistry and work together and they really like for. The most part really embody their characters in a way that. I don't feel like we see that much anymore. It's true all right. We want to know what.

Whitman brie larson jason schwartzman and with eyebrows. More on point literally. Chris evans dodi. What's your general impression of the film today and has it changed at all over the last ten years. I really liked this movie. I think if anything's changed in the past ten years there are moments that i have to kinda watch through my fingers. Now i saw in twenty ten off. Fresh break-up which i think is the way to see it. And i walked out and i was kind of like i think i like that and over time i of found that i couldn't quit it that i went back and rewatch scenes from it over and over again. It became sort of like a late night. Comfort watch and i think the thing that sticks with me about it. Is that in many ways. It is a romantic comedy with all of the trouble. That that brings. But you're aware from the very start that the hero socks that he's the worst. i also recognize. That may be one reason why able to enjoy it so much that i'm not in this movie. It has no black characters if knives chow was and there were lots of jokes about that. I'm sure that at the time. It would have made me issue a lot more. But the thing that i thought about rewatching it last night getting ready to talk to you. All is that in a way. I am in this movie because i've been a twenty two year old six gender straight dude and the thing that i recognize in even this is the aspect where to me. It's less just about like loving it and more about like kind of finding it useful because it can be gutting to see some of your worst moments reflected back at you. Obviously in an extreme way. But i think if you're a young horny dude who still has a lot of growing to. Do you want excuses for your romantic life to feel epoch and like a conquest and you don't want your partner you wanna win them..

Time For Turkey (MM #3536)

"The with kevin mason. Everyone has had to adjust their thanksgiving plans this year. At least most people have because we've been asked not to travel. We already knew going into things. We weren't going to be traveling this year. We aren't gonna head back to indiana for thanksgiving because we don't want to risk we don't want to be around our nieces and nephews and all the family just in case we could bring with us. So we're hunkering down and we're staying here and getting ready for thanksgiving feast. Although for the two of us. We really don't want to turkey. I mean we could do it but it's not quite the same thing so in my wife asked me what i wanted this year instead of the normal thanksgiving turkey and dressing and cranberry and all. That kind of stuff opted for lasagna. Because really it doesn't matter what you eat. We're not eating the same things that the pilgrims and the indians eight way back when it's all about being thankful for what you have spite of the year in spite of the tough situation we've been in. We still have a lot to be thankful for my health. My wife's health and the fact that all of our relatives my mother my father my father in law. My brother-in-law sister along the whole family have all been safe so far. That's the most important thing something you've thanks for.

"To announce but pse for brown men we are your host. This is this year my name is relevant and this is a podcast about brown men talking about issues that matter to you we talk about things that we don't usually talk about in the brown communities. We're just three regular kompass sharing our experiences to inspire positive chains combine. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to las campus lounge in today's episode. We're gonna be talking about thanksgiving Would it means to us how we how we celebrated growing up and how we celebrate it now and will. We hope to pass onto the next generation. Yeah thanksgiving man. you know. it's had its evolution with me you know and with with my partners over the years and And my family. You know and thanksgiving. First and foremost is family time That's what it is for me as an individual as a family man and with that we can't Ignore the historical facts. And maybe some folks don't know the historical facts As kids growing up you know we were. We were taught the fantasy that the pilgrims sat down with What the native americans and broke bread literally and had a feast. Because the native americans you know helped out the the pilgrims and whatnot otherwise they would have died in the in their first winters in in Ekos well that's like. I said that that's actually a a fairytale. The reality is thanksgiving was actually a celebration of the european american the white settlers after they basically slaughtered a group of indians a group of americans and after they did that the after the european american settlers did that they feasted they. They celebrated the kill basically and that became a an annual tradition. You know of celebrating. Celebrating the the coin conquest of a group of native americans and along the way the celebration began to lose its history and it became What we call a tradition and a tradition is basically so then that's passed on from generation to generation where you forget the historical origin that is origins of thanksgiving here. In the united states of america is basically the slaughtering in massacring of native americans. That's the real story behind thanksgiving. I know it's it's an ugly truth that people don't want to hear to wanna talk about probably don't even know. But that's the reality you know and for me knowing that it's a mixed feeling for me Thanksgiving that's why with myself my family and my circles. We usually don't call thanksgiving. We sometimes just called. Thanks taking But now they're boulder. I'm a little mark more gutter baldo on. Just call it family. You know it's It's family day. Well that's really. Well put because a growing up. I was fair. That fantasy of we really make costumes in elementary school of the little feather and and a pilgrim hat and we had plays and that was really beautiful. It was it was something You know. I believed in as a little kid and then and then You grow up and you're coming up as a as a young kid in east. La and your mom and dad first generation. He got knows and they did their part. I think in a from a good place to do some assimilation so to speak and he said okay. Well here in the united states We do thank the we or a you know. We do thanksgiving in terms of a turkey and all that but and she knew we loved it right. It was really good and it was a good way to bring in Bring us all into the table right. Food brings people together. And that's that's very true for the latino community and and of course he would add flavor to it right. You know don molly s and other traditional foods but in mexico. Yeah you don't celebrate thanksgiving the way the way. It's celebrated here in the united states. But like you ruben. I once i started learning the reality of the origins of thanksgiving it. it's i struggled with it as a young man. And now's a older man. I i don't struggle with it as much. I just try to think about what. How do we use this day and for family. You know like you said we've been. How do we use and adopt to this day for family and try to look at the good side of the tradition because after all what does it mean to us now as grown men. We're creating our own traditions for families. We're creating our own celebrations if you will of a holiday a national holiday in how we know like it or not. We're here in the united states and like it or not. We have kids and like it or not. We have to struggle with this kind of stuff and it kinda sucks a little bit because You kind of want to tell your kids that the origins but hall soon. And i guess we'll talk about that later put but anyways so for me what it means really is just like you said it's about family. It's about being thankful and not necessarily trying to stir up negative thoughts or feelings about a historical the historical events because then that just pisses me off and puts me in a really bad mood and not want to do that to my family.

"Most without equal for this recipe you will need one each skylark thrush quayle ortolan lapping. Golden plover partridge woodcock. -til guinea hen guinea fowl. Wild duck red pheasant. Wild goose boostered and fake pecker pluck and got the birds then stuff the smallest bird into the next smallest birds cavity and so on until you have one neutron star of bird meet paraphrased from seventeenth century cookbook and you thought her duck in was a new thing. My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak.

We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan

"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated

A deep dive into American Thanksgiving

"Four hundred years ago a ship pulled up on the shores of cape cod mass sits. The merchant ship wasn't carrying. It's normal cargo of dry goods and wine this time it carried more than one hundred people people seeking religious freedom and a new way of life seeking a new world but the world they found across the ocean wasn't new. It was his oldest people who lived there the wont people the people of the first light. It was as old as the corn beans and squash. They grew and as old as the songs they sang. This week on unreserved. You've probably heard about the first meal the pilgrims in native american shared so today. We're going deeper into that history and finding out more about the walnut people and how that votes arrival changed everything. This year to commemorate the arrival of the mayflower celebrations were planned in the united states. Womp dog people were consulted in the lead up to the mayflower four hundred events. This time they wanted their history and truths at the forefront and to examine what it meant when the mayflower landed on this side of the ocean. Things weren't unfolding in exactly the same way in plymouth. England when art historian stephanie. Pratt was invited to advise on an art piece. That was going to celebrate the mayflower voyage. She decided to help correct. Its course and in doing so. She brought clarity to the conversation about the mayflower in. A part of the world were indigenous. History is not as well known. We've reached her at her home in devon england. Stephanie welcome to the show. Hi there so this project you advised on a part of your involvement with mayflower. Four hundred Massive program events mostly in the uk To mark the mayflower voyage. That happened four hundred years ago. So how did you get involved with mayflower four hundred well as sort of a a slow buildup i suppose i began probably in about twenty eighteen to advise on what was called the educational committee or the the educational program for mayflower for hundred and i kind of was snuck in by a friend of mine his name is danny riley and he is probably wanted to spearhead people along with his wife angeles sherlock who have really been very critical of the whole process. The help build up the complete while what they would call sanitizing of history. And so you had some reservations about taking on this role. Can you can you tell us why. That was why i think danny himself said you know this is gonna be kind of a poisoned chalice because You know that you're going to be helping. Make them feel better about what they're doing. And so i know that you were part of shaping. A massive art installation near where the mayflower would have departed plymouth. england near where you are today and it's a. It's a sculpture of lights that spells out the words. No news world's Can you tell me about that sculpture. Well the the artists that were involved in that sculpture. They're called still moving. And they've known each other for many years and i think when the first Announcement of ding for art projects under the mayflower umbrella came up. These guys took advantage but they admitted to me later on that they at the beginning had really no idea what the mayflower was. What it what it represented certainly not what representative indigenous peoples north america. So they were told at the beginning. You know you have to be careful with this but what they came up with was the idea that they would have in lights. The words the new world and they presented that to locals in plymouth. some of whom were very critical and said no. You cannot absolutely cannot do that but you need to talk to stephanie. So they came up to exeter where i live and asked me about it and my very first reaction was says. No that's ridiculous. You absolutely cannot say the new world what are you talking about. There never was a new world. We live on one planet. This is what it is. You know trying to teach little kids. I guess that's how i felt and And they were very very grateful and they listened and luckily they had another idea which was to put up a changing sign or changing signed edge. Which would move between the words new worlds no new worlds no world and so forth so they had several iterations they would use and i said yes. That's that's the one you need to go with.

"I think you can unlock knives challenge to like if you defeat her, he's an old man riding the bus. If you defeat him in certain way, you can unlike her as a playable character and you can. You can also do tag team moves like a super special attack. Scott can let call knives in with a barrage knives on the ground and you know Scott can call in Ramona flowers and she kisses him doesn't kind of. is really fun. It's it's it's a great it's a it's a solid video game and it's a damn shame. This movie didn't make more money because I think if it did if it made its money back probably reported it to the playstation for. The bone, and I would be. This, Week Converted to pee so that I could play on in any era because like, yeah. Stuck on little console really sucks especially I think the playstation three is also kind of infamously hard to emulate right like. Crazy parallel risks. that. Yeah. That like you know even though we have way more powerful machines, it's just very hard to emulate that. So I've never I mean maybe it's possible today but I've not able to I've never been able to get a good playstation emulator. My only complaint about that check that out is it a kicked? My Ass. Again is hard. Is Very hard. Yeah. That's part of the like you. I think you all sorts of other things like you had to beat it in one go you could use. hyperspace tunnels to bypass things like Mario. But you had the like if you got to the final stage, you had to get there at once ran out lives you had to start all you could save but like once he ran a lives that was it. So it's kind of I think designed to kick your ass and you have to level up and if you're if you're struggling go through some of the areas multiple times but. The variety of enemies like when you're fighting the Chris Evans Guy, the stunt the do you have to fight a stuntman and there's also dudes that are wearing green screen. Mo. Cap. Suits that blend into the background until they come screaming at you and like assistant directors assistance come at you with like swing lights and Shit. Like when you fight Nega Scott, it's like set in a graveyard and there's like Zombie versions of the characters popping out of the ground. You Got Ninjas and Samurais when you're when you're trying to defeat the Ninja. Girl. I think Japanese twins eventually form Voltron robot that you have to go to the rooftop to defeat like their individual hands and then their chest platforms and all that stuff. Yeah, it's super. It's it's. It's really fucking elaborate. They spend a lot of money and time on that game and it's criminally underappreciated. Yeah. We've got to mention Scott, pilgrim, the film, right we've got to mention Howell integrated. You know that the idea of a game is into Scott Pilgrim because. It's not just you know the coins pop out of people or there's like round one or whatever, which the journalist Bill. Hader doing those voices, he's credited as voice in this movie. I did not. That's cool. Yeah. That's cool But the end of this movie the battle with Gideon. He uses a game mechanic to defeat him right that one up that he grabs. He you know he dies, and then he comes back with his one up his extra life and Yeah, the movie is made. At is absolutely made for a time when gaming is getting big You know it's always I've always been Gamer. So I feel like gaming has always been a big thing. It certainly hasn't and it is probably did before two thousand ten when this movie was made sure it's gotten even bigger but now yeah now it's just bleeding over into movies and and the novels and music and everything. I married some time ago I think it was maybe about ten years ago that like video games make more money than Hollywood. Yes, and is not even close anymore like I I read what was it the the last of US moved. Four million copies in its first weekend. Like, if that was film that was a film, it would make a billion dollars in a single fucking weekend. Yeah I mean it happened is probably on rockstars back. And Ray dead cell. So many free copies that sure colorady like yeah. Like the EA Games like there's some by but like there's this like you know like the last of us to doesn't have nearly the cultural significance that lack of injuries does. But when you're talking about the number of people playing and how much money it's making, it's night and day. it's it's insane how much money's come go in and that's all it. It's cool to see these crossovers in that. In kind of like, you know because I think other movies have tried to capitalize on that like the movie doom you know had that infamous kind of like four minute first-person sequence a Kinda SORTA works, but this is just more of like you know in the middle of fighting. A hit Combo racking up and Keio people and it it it does the classic like Street fighter k. o and and it just kind of affects that you you get it. You know yeah and it's built around that. It's not. It's not like something that they said Oh well. You know this is a game movie. So Shit, we gotta do something game like I dunno let's put. Let's strap a camera to somebody's head and do No. This is built on ground up with gamers in mind and I. liked it is woven in organically like you said, even the P. Bar like there's so many things. Like that unlike and also. They use like very, very comic book way like I when you go into Scott's apartment and you see that like Kieran Culkin remember his name scared navy he literally owns everything except for one shitty poster and Scott, Scott's actual coat and then there's US I forget this someone used this word on Brandon routh. he's like, do you even know what that word means is like yeah, and then like this something popped out of his head says he doesn't. or other things like were. Ramonic- throughout the whole film is constantly correcting Scott's like your seven evil ex boyfriends she's like seven evil. And then like when he finally makes the realization that you know his girlfriend had a lesbian lover lover, it goes into his brain and there's tile that goes doesn't get it to gets it and it just goes. All the way over I don't know I can see like my dad watching that because you don't, you don't need to understand how these video game mechanics on like they don't. They're they enhancer appreciation. I see them being annoying if you don't get it but as a Gamer in someone that likes that kind of frenetic you know a editing style because I love like Shit. Cranked movies man like the average cut scene is point two, five seconds the average length of cut like that stuff that just like fucking move and move and move and crazy shit happen all the time. I love that stuff and Scott Pilgrim is probably the most accessible version of that Yeah and still to this day, I can't think of a movie to does it better And then La, certainly less offensive than crank. Much, less expensive than Krankl Shit. So I'll do it for our coverage of the tenth anniversary of Scott Pilgrim vs world. Next time on Bob move pulp movies. We're GONNA be talking about bill and Ted's excellent adventure. Do you know why? Because Bill and Ted her face in the music. And late August early September and we want to get the cobwebs blown blown out of our brains on bill and Ted Wavelength. So I'm looking forward to that. Hope you guys too.

"Big Picture on our Van Thin Jason. Concepcion to Scott Pilgrim super fans. Thank you for being here. Guys. I wanted you both found because I. Know that your fans and being a fan is is complicated. These days is a ten year old movie. I WANNA go back to the moment ten years ago for both you. Maybe you could tell me a little bit about when you first saw this movie and what your initial reaction to it was. I was shamed into it. Yeah it was shame, so happens ally of the best things in life have come directly from Shane and so I missed it in. It's the actual run didn't see it and <hes> talking to a friend of mine and a friend of mine goes. WHO's talking to me about this? Great show that he had heard that was coming to HBO. And the show is called game of thrones, and it was coming to hbo the little while he was telling me about holidays, books and stuff like that, and then he says to me he goes, but I have a feeling. You just a surface nerd anyway. And I know I am the nerdiness of the nerdy. He goes well. Did you see Scott Pilgrim vs the world in theaters, and I no surface Nerd, so then he tells me after. See the movie I watch it and right away. I was blown away. And I had the DVD I would have the DVD and I just like Lucht DVD over and over and over and over and over again to the point to where my girlfriend was just beside herself in hating the movie.

First of all the character of Scott, just how he is both the hero, and in many ways the villain of the movie at the same time. You know what I mean. He is the guy that you're rooting for, but he is completely like personally. He's a jar. And like I was going through a period in my life without sort of me and I I relate related to in one part of the world.

I'd never seen anything like it onscreen still having to this day.

"The pilgrim family drifted around Alaska for a few years. They lived in fairbanks and then in homer for short time. But neither town offered Papa the seclusion. He desired for his family. He knew as soon as he drove into. Mccarthy in January two thousand two. This was where he wanted to settle. He did not plan to live in McCarthy itself but he wanted his home to be near enough to the small town so he could get supplies. They're on the Weekly Mail plane. Nail dear ish who was in the process of remodeling the McCarthy Lodge. For the summer tourism season was the first to notice the strange arrival of the pilgrim family. The temperature hovered at twenty degrees below zero. But most of the huddled together in the open beds of two pickup trucks. When the trucks roll to a stop in front of the lodge the kids sprang from the beds and began looking around town excitedly. A man with long grey hair along beard a weathered face and piercing blue eyes climbed from the cab of one of the trucks and introduced himself to Garish. As Pilgrim Darioush invited the family into the Lodges Dining Room. Pilgrim had come to McCarthy with only ten of his kids rose stayed back with the younger kids. While Papa chucked out McCarthy and scouted available Property Papa liked what he saw McCarthy and the pilgrims charmed the dozen residents who gathered at the lodge to meet them. The pilgrim kids grabbed fiddles guitars and a mandolin from their trucks and put on an impromptu bluegrass concert for the crowd. The children were cute shy and various religious. Most of the residents welcomed the pilgrims. But at least one in the crowd of townspeople saw papa pilgrim for the con. Man He was papa. Pilgrim soon returned to McCarthy with country rose and their fifteen children. They bought an abandoned mine. Fourteen miles from McCarthy up the mountain and accessible only by the nearly impassable McCarthy Green Butte Road Papa called their new Home Hillbilly Heaven Hill Billy. Heaven could be reached by Snow Machine Horse and even on foot if you didn't mind hiking for a day since it was impossible to drive a truck up the road. Though pilgrim arranged for supplies to be delivered by Bush plane or by horse the freight costs soon became too expensive. However and in the fall of two thousand and two. When the family ran short on funds the pilgrims began to secretly use a bulldozer to clear the old road to town since the road ran through the wrangle. Saint Elias National Park and Park Regulations Prohibited Clearing Park land or altering the old road in any way. Pilgrim did his best to hide his illicit actions from the park service. The following spring when Park Rangers discovered what the pilgrims had done to the road. They began surveying the damage. And prepared a lawsuit against Robert Hale. Aka Papa Pilgrim. Pilgrim wasted. No time preying on the generosity of other Alaskans and asking for their sympathy and support. He posted the letters around McCarthy about the unfairness of the park service. Denying his simple God fearing family access to their home. He invited a television news. Crew Anchorage so it's viewers could see the families simple lifestyle and Papuka talk about how much they needed the old road to haul supplies to their home. In Hillbilly Heaven. The charming news piece created support for the pilgrims and anger against the Park Service. The story about the pilgrims and their simple godly lifestyle. High Above McCarthy in Hillbilly Heaven Spread to national and international news organizations the Washington Post The economist. Cnn and the BBC all did stories on the pilgrims and they're backward lifestyle. Zealous reporters uncovered. The Story of hails passed. But the pilgrim patriarch revelled in all the attention and greedily accepted proffered charity. He pushed his charming in front of the cameras and never missed an opportunity for his family to perform their gospel tunes. For the press residents of McCarthy who had I found the pilgrim's charming and had welcome them with open arms soon began to grow tired of the clan. At the beginning of the two thousand four summer tour season pilgrim dress some of his younger children in ragged outfits and stationed them by the footbridge into McCarthy where they sold tickets for a bus ride up to the Kennecott mine. Other local families already provided a bus service to the mind and the residents McCarthy resented the pilgrims for stealing the business the pilgrims also set up a squatters camp down the street from the McCarthy Lodge where they stayed when they were in town. Not only did they encroach on the properties of others but they brought their livestock into the camp forcing their neighbors to deal with the smell and excrement from the animals. Mccarthy residents repeatedly asked the pilgrims to move their squatters camp but when they refused Stevens Harper a park ranger and a neighbor whose driveway had been partially blocked by the pilgrims possessions approached their camp driving a bulldozer. Two dozen McCarthy residents arrived on the scene to support Harper and Papa. Pilgrim finally moved the camp to a parcel of land. He'd recently purchased at the end of the McCarthy road. Papa pilgrim continue to teach his kids. It was okay for them to steal equipment and animals from others and at the father had a run in with one of the locals he often sit and Joshua and Jacob his two oldest sons to follow or frighten them when Park Service. Rangers attempted to climb the road to talk to pilgrim. Some of the oldest kids at first followed the Rangers on horseback and then blocked their way when they got closer to Hillbilly Papa. Pilgrim liked to preach his version of the Gospel and when others disagreed with him he'd get mad. And leave the people of McCarthy found Papa pilgrim overbearing and self righteous and. They were concerned about the welfare of the kids. The older kids often sported large bruises and people wondered if the bruises had been caused by a rough life outdoors or was there source more sinister. A few realized most of the kids could not read and they wondered if the children had ever received formal schooling..

"This store is not specifically a Taylor murder. Although I do believe it does involve a murder. I chose the story because it describes the independent streak of many Alaskans and their desire to live without government. Interference it also conveys the friend late open nature of Rural Alaskans and their willingness to trust others and go the extra mile to lend a helping hand to strangers this story also unfortunately reveals the nature of those few individuals who moved to Alaska to escape their sins only to repeat them here and become an ugly stain on the fabric of the Alaska Landscape in most wilderness areas in Alaska. You are likely to find a few people who've chosen to live in such a remote area because they want to escape. Societal norms and public scrutiny. Most of these individuals are good. People who simply don't WanNa be bothered by the government don't WanNa be told how to raise their children or want to be able to follow their own spiritual beliefs. Alaska does have laws though. Alaska is not the wild west. Papa pilgrim probably could have hidden off the grid in the Alaskan Wilderness and continued his horrible rain over his family. Had he not taken on the National Park Service and turned a spotlight on himself and his family? My first podcast episode chronicled the mail. Day murders in tiny McCarthy Alaska the ghost mining town in the heart of the huge Rangel Saint Elias National Park. Most of this story is also said McCarthy and it begins where my last story ended Chris Richards. One of the survivors of the McCarthy Mail Day massacre died when his cabin burned a few days before Christmas in two thousand one at almost the same moment when flames leapt from richards cabin. The Pilgrim clan marched into McCarthy PAPA. Pilgrim country rose and their fifteen children made quite a spectacle in the streets and McCarthy Alaska.

"Would know the entire sequence of her morning white coffee shop and he was like this weird awkward dude and it was played for laughs but now in today's setting I can see people get mad about ends like you know. Go back and say oh. That's not right and stuff so I feel like David. I can has a whole string of performances. That wouldn't fly today. Oh yes he does. He's got that market garnered I guess. Oh all right well I will go on to my next piece then So I am going to go with another movie with a hell of a lot of style. That you know came before it and blended the whole comic book thing with with movie making and that's Robert Rodriguez Sin City Which you know has just such a very unique interesting style. That captures the graphic novels that it's based on while you know really just again doing something that hadn't been seen onscreen and not with that. You know attention to detail before that was also my list. Ny City Yeah. We both have the same movie there. Just the fact that it feels like it is taking the graphic novel. It's like taking the pages off the graphic novel and putting them right onto the screen. I think it's so well done heavily. Stylized there's not very many movies you could say about where if feels like you're looking at the comic book on the screen totally no absolutely I it and it's just such a cool look and again. I mean this is something we've been talking about through this whole conversation so far but it just makes it feel so unique so unique and original imagine if Sin City had just been filmed in the normal you know color and not so heavily stylized with a which a lot of comic movies do sure. It just wouldn't work. No it would not be the same thing at all. It would just again. It just goes back to just being another action movie. Basically yeah and we have so many generic action movies nowadays that they. It's hard to tell them apart so it's nice when a director really puts their own flair and style into a movie. That's always great to see sure absolutely So was that your last piece. Then did I steal it from you know I actually have one more? Okay what do you got so I have a another movie. That's based off for graphic novel This movie is very. It was released pretty much pretty much at the same time almost. So it's Kinda hard to say that it was a influence because they go both released in the same year but I think This movie was released like a couple months before but I see a lot of similarities in the movie kick ass. This movie is a graphic novel Eats about a lot of action a lot of fighting. So there's a hyper stylized style You get it from. Hit Girl Mostly in the movie but the fact that it's so colorful the movie kick ass Each character brings their own style kind of the way every character. In Scott Pilgrim has their own fighting style weather. It's the ex girlfriend who who's really very good at fighting or if it's like the twins who do all their fighting through the speaker in the sounds everybody has their own style and kick ass in on top of that You have the main protagonist who. He wants to be a hero. He wants to be like the guy but he you know he has no training. You know he has no true reason to really motivate him not. It's just at the end of the day finally he. He builds up the necessary courage to know that he's doing this for himself. Not just for you know just to be cool and in Scott Pilgrim. He realizes that he needs to do things more for himself. I think if they can in Scott Pilgrim at the very end He gets the do over the final fight and the reason he gets to do the final fight. He has that extra life but then the reason he gets the sword out and it's like a self respecting right to make some more powerful same thing with kick ass he he's able to trust in his own instincts. Instead of relying on everyone else be listening to everybody else in what they think he should be things like that is what I drew from. Kick-ass for Scott Pilgrim. Yes absolutely it's crazy that these two movies came out in the same year They just they really tapped into the same The same feeling the same the same culture that hadn't really been represented quite so much on on screen before and certainly not in this way They just they really are companion pieces in a way. Yeah and so I. I wonder if there was something going on in that timeframe of two thousand ten that really lent themselves for these movies to come out at that time and you know speak to that person. Art Those type of people who maybe didn't know what they wanted to do with themselves but they knew they wanted something sure and so. Yeah I think they're great companion pieces together absolutely all right. Well I will go onto my next piece. I have two more so I'll just Knocked out back to back First up is eternal sunshine of the spotless. Mind I added this one. Yeah you did I mean for me. It was mainly also the inventiveness of the way I how everything shot and all that but mainly it's the ending of of knowing that They have all of this relationship and emotional baggage. But they're going to just go for it. Anyway Yeah Yeah I. It's very well done. And it does match the ending of this movie as well totally. It's such a frigging good movie. And then the other one I was going to bring up in this one's not not so very specific but just for the culture itself but that's the wizard the The Fred Savage Nintendo going all the way back and I mean there's not so much with plot or anything like that but just so much with That's one of the earlier examples I could think of trying to capture you know nerd culture that really never got displayed. Onscreen before yeah. I think that's what this movie does. So well is displaying. Then no nerd culture in a way that nerds would actually understand Framing as almost like a game at moments or a comic book or just the pop culture references of the time Yeah a lot of movies won't do that. They won't cater to that audience in that way. Yeah maybe considering that they didn't show up to buy tickets. Maybe maybe there's a damn nerds. Well I'M GONNA go ahead and do the finish puzzle. And then we'll we'll talk about some movies that have come since that may be Scott Pilgrim vs the world itself has influenced so finished puzzle. Include Shaun of the dead speed racer. Five hundred days of Summer Kevin Smith movies such as clerks mallrats chasing amy ten things. I hate about you sin city kick ass eternal sunshine and the wizard. So why don't we talk a little bit about some movies? That have come since this. This came out of course in two thousand ten so the last ten years Nerd culture is absolutely started to explode a little bit and become much more mainstream. I think What do you think? Are there any movies that you thought this reminded you of that have come since so this movie? We mentioned it earlier. Kind of stands on its own because there's not many movies that are made like this. There's plenty of comic book movies. I don't think we can say here and say that This was the reason why. But you know there's a lot of movies out there. There's one movie though that I kind of feel has similar beats at least And that he's ready player.

The first part of the chapter of Pilgrim's progress do you understand what have said? It is impossible for you to be saved if you have never been. The place to begin is not trying to force certain obedience. The place to begin is to honestly survey the condition of your life before God to honestly look with an open mind and an open heart saying Jesus show me who I am and then show me who you are. Let me see you. Plainly Jesus and the Holy Spirit begins to stir in a man or a woman's heart and draw them out after righteousness after repentance after a broken nece with tears for the way we have offended the Holy God of Heaven For we have offended. God mightily the Christian faith is not about performing certain duties being like a certain culture. No the Christian faith is about repenting of the wickedness of our hearts and reading the scriptures and searching after Jesus until he begins to reveal the true nature of our own heart the wickedness of our own heart many of you have not been able to leave the sin in your life because you have skipped this vital step of humbling your heart before God and letting him teach you who you are in reality before him and why you should be cast into hell. You skip that part. That's the place of the narrow gate. Were the arrows of the enemy or piercing.

"Italy's elise ancient trails in just a second. Today's travel with Rick Steves and a little later in the hour a journalist who has investigated how we navigate the world shares. The science end the mystery. She's she's discovered over. How finding our way makes us human hiking for a week or a month on a historic pilgrimage? Trail in Europe has become a popular Peter way for people from all over the world to rejuvenate themselves. It's gotten so that Spain's popular community. Santiago is even starting to feel a little crowded sometimes times. If you'd prefer a quiet or pilgrim route. Italy may have the answer. Sandy Brown and errands Italia have covered hundreds of miles on the historic walking trails of of Italy. And they WANNA help you give it a try. They've recently helped to found an organization called American pilgrims to Italy. And it's designed to help people like you would meet a plan. Pilgrimage hike in Italy in Sandy has written a detailed guide to tracking the way of Saint Francis from Florence to Assisi and then to Rome there joining us now on travel with Rick. Steves Steph's to recommend trails. That Saint Francis may have himself tracked Erin and thanks for joining us. Thanks for having US happiness. So Europe has these these venerable hikes. That are really long and it has these pilgrimage trails. That really have a a a little bit of a different meaning Aaron. What's the difference between just a long multiday hike in Europe that can be famous and established and a pilgrimage? Well to me pilgrimage signifies. This is a long walk to place of spiritual meaning and so to me. The first one that I ever did was the way of Saint Francis and so oh walking along pads in stopping in towns where he had been in there were stories about him had more of a spiritual context to it than just trekking. The camino goes to the supposed tomb of Saint James Ferried in Santiago de Compostela. Yes that would be the goal. People in the Middle Ages walked from Paris all the way to that northwest corner of Spain with that goal in mind Martin. Luther hiked from way up in Germany all the way to Rome. He was told to hike down there. It was kind of personal. What would you call it Sandy? A personal ordeal or a personal. I think you could say a pilgrimage also committed jar and then when he got to Rome he walked up the steps of this Accra scholar on his knees and had quite an experience. Enrollment was life changing for him so life changing that started the reformation. He did a lot of thinking and he got to Rome. I understand when when he got up to the top of those depths he kind of goes. This is all make sense exactly. It's a time when you think about these things. Isn't it now when we think about Italy. You guys are both specializing in Poke Mitch. Trails in Italy Saint Francis would be the the star of these things Send you wasn't St Francis relate to these pilgrimage trails well the VA Francesco Chess. Go the way of Saint. Francis is a modern connecting of the various different sites from Saint Francis Time and so for instance when he had a big experience the stigma experience at Santiago de la Berna. That's connected then with Google where he spoke with wolf and see see where he was born and had his last days. Okay so this is a modern. Lacing together of these stops people who want to get into whether they want to hike an excuse for hiker to actually get into the the whole life in the teaching of Saint Francis they would do this. Walk the name of your book is tracking the way of Saint Francis Triumph floors to CD-ROM. So that's what that would be. And then we hear about the FRANCI. JANA the via French ejecta is an historic walk. And so it's a little different. From the way of Saint Francis in terms of it was put together in the ancient world or in in the Middle Ages actually because there was a priest by the name of Cyrillic that was elevated to the episcopacy and he was supposed to appear in Rome to receive his Palim. which is the symbol of his office and so he walked with a retinue from Canterbury across France Switzerland down through Italy and arrived in Rome and then instructed his secretary to take notes of the way back and those notes were all contained at the Cathedral and Canterbury where they sat for thousand and years and then thousand years later people said well what is this and they put together the Modern Day via French agenda following that same modern modern day Revisit of this now does that relate to canterbury tales at all. It doesn't away because well. In case of Canterbury Tales they were ending at Canterbury Burri and the case of this. They were starting at Cantor. Okay now would. Saint Francis have actually walked on that trail on the difference. You know although it's very possible possible that he walked portions of it in order to get up to the community Santiago Kaz. He did walk. The community. Santiago did only twelve fourteen but the a piece of the way of Saint Francis that's historic that he was summoned to Rome by Pope innocent the third and he walked from. CCD Rome and ended up at the Saint. John Lateran Church. So that's one of the stops on the way of Saint Francis and it follows roughly his okay if you were so inclined you could leave a C. C. N. B. Meditating on in Saint Francis and his teaching and his experience all the way to Rome. That's actually the goal right and then the finishing point would be Saint Peter's or exactly what well we stop at Saint John Lateran But we end up at Saint Peter's then in my book I include the Pilgrimage Churches of Rome. Yeah as an option at the end because there are seven urban historic pilgrim churches. And it's about a twenty five kilometer walk and you hit. All seven of this. Church is quite an interesting walk in modern day Rome but touching on medieval medieval and ancient sites. Sandy Brown is the author of the CICERO trekking guide to the way of Saint Francis and Errands Italia heads and organization that prepares the American travelers to explore the pilgrimage trails of Italy. We have links to their websites with this week. Show at Rick Steves Dot com slash radio so sandy. When you come to Piazza del Popolo I I try to think of it? Like a pilgrim five hundred years ago. Yeah what do you think when you come to Piazza. No Popolo one thing is before you get there you would have crossed the Ponti Mill View. And that's a wonderful wonderful historic place because that's where the vision of Constantine was where the cost went back in three twelve or three ten or something. Exactly yes then and you follow the road in to Piazza del Popolo. And of course would you would say and what I would say. I is go into the Santa Maria Church and look at the car of Agios right right so that's a piece that you have to do and then we would want people to walk along the ancient streets that had toward the Vatican so so there's the street where they made the beads that go on the rosaries uh-huh and that's a street that we'd want people to go and sort of skirts along the top of the You you know a couple of other. Like Piazza NAVONA. Right on the way to Saint Peter's and if you're a pilgrim you would know that I go down this boulevard to that obelisk and then I looked to the left after nicey a dome and then I looked on there and I see a statue and you you would know how to navigate through the city by these long beautiful elegant streets that lead to great landmarks works. Yes and specially the pedestrian streets so by the time a pilgrim gets to Rome. They've walked maybe a hundred or a thousand or seventeen hundred kilometers commodores. So they're also looking for a bed and a cafe and Wanted to do the kind of walk. It'll get him in the most economical kind kind of way to their destination but then when they arrive in Saint Peter's there is a certificate that it can receive if they've walked at least one hundred kilometers. It's the equivalent on the Community Santiago. Is that Compostella. This is called the testimony. I'm okay and so that's a nice treat for us and I was going to ask you about this. I know when you go to community Santiago. You clicked this passport. Talk about the credential in the practical reason for that when you are a pilgrim in Italy heading to Rome so the credential or they called the credence Ya gala. It's of paper. That's like your passport. That's what differentiates you as a pilgrim from. Just anybody else traveling. So certain places. We'll give you discounts on your lodging. If you have your credential in basically every town you stop and you get a stamp along the way and then when you arrive at Your Final Destination Chan that sort of your proof that hey. I'm pretty awesome because I just did this. Really Amazing Walk and these are the stamps to show it in Rome. Is there actually a a regular place that you go and you can. There's there's somebody there and their job is to stamp this credential yes you go to the pilgrims office and I did not have to wait at all we went in. I was walking with with four friends and we arrived. We had to fill out a piece of paper and it was actually quite emotional thinking you know this is. My journey is officially Dinan. I'm filling out this paper showing where I started.

"pilgrim" Discussed on National Prayer Chapel, Pilgrim's Progress

"Book pilgrim's progress that we have shared many times but today i wanna return to it for very specific reason we're living in a world that is so desperately deceived and and searching for what is vile and wicked we're living in the day when everything that is righteous seems to be cast down and everything that is evil seems to be lifted up how do we deal with all of this as christian is walking toward that promise land he is met once more by evangelist evangelists begins to talk with him about about the crown that is about the final reward of entering into the presence of jesus and he says quoting first corinthians nine twenty four to twenty seven the crown just before you ended is an incorruptible one so run the you may obtain it many who have set out to win that crown even after they've gone quite a long way on the journey allow other people to come into their life and snatch away that crown that victory so evangelists this coming now to christian and he's saying hold on don't let anybody take that away from you you were not yet get out of the reach of the gun shot of the devil you've not yet resisted under death and you're striving against in let the kingdom be always before you unbelievable certainty inconsistency the things that are yet unseen let nothing that is on this side of each journal life get inside of you above all take care of your own hearts and resist the lust resist those things which are deceitful that are desperately wicked set your face like flint you have all of the power of heaven and earth on your side now is they continue talking with evangelist he began to share with them that they would soon go through a town called vanity fair and then they would be set upon by enemies in this town who would be determined men to kill them or did turn them aside from the path of righteousness she'll be faithful under death he says and the king will give you in that great day a crown of life continues i saw in my dream that when they had left the borders of the wilderness they immediately saw town before them the name of the town is vanity and then the town there is a year round market called vanity fair it bears it's name because the town that host the fear is only concerned with things that are unimportant in vain things that are worth less things that are without hope now i've been curious about okay what is the difference between vanity fair in the city of destruction the city of destruction if you remember the story of a vanity fair the city of destruction is that place firm which christian fled why did he flea well he saw in the scriptures that the city was going to be destroyed but it's going to be burned but what really prompted him to leave the city of destruction was the conviction found in the scripture regarding his own in he was so convicted did end so burdened by that sin that they had to flee for his life and so we have the story of this allegorical story of bunyan written in the sixteen hundreds we find bunyan writing the christian is so concerned about is and then so under conviction regarding the ugliness of his own personal life that he flees from the city of destruction and you remember he went through the swamp despondency almost gave up hope of ever finding any relief many like pliable who come to the swamp despond finally say i'm not going to make it through that i'm going back i'll learn how to liv with my sin and as one brother other wrote to me this last week i've not overcome my cigarettes there's a dead nest in his tone he's not overcome his sin and so he has continued delivered in the city of destruction well what's the difference between that and vanity fair vanity fair is the system of the culture it is outside side of my own personal sin that has already been dealt west vanity fair is a place we must all go through we are all in fact going through vanity fair so what is the difference the answer is the christian and faithful have been changed they have dealt with their personal sin they have repetitive that personal sin and they have turned aside from it they now see everything through heavens authorized the schemes the traps enticements entertainments of the world they all see this in a new way so now they're going to encounter the corporate system system the nine lates all the forces who would block the progress you see what are these systems today it is not acceptable double in or culture just say that homosexuality lesbianism transgender ism sodomy it's not acceptable to say the these are all out of pit of hell they are of satan they are seeing they are wrong they will take a person to hell that's not acceptable just say in our culture likewise it's not acceptable in many parts of our culture to take a stand against the murder of babies they call it a woman's rights never mind the placenta is the different dna than hers never mind that a woman is supposed to have absolute rule over that life that she is giving birth to so abortion and is very popular today death is very popular and when we stand on the side of life we are cursed in today's culture we're also told in today's culture that everything is about success about money everything is about having my way doing it my way everything is about dominance in control not about submission and love today were told that women must dominate of course you understand when there was one god there was one rule and it was the relational rule it was a ruler ship that did not dominate it was not a ruler ship that manipulated it was not a ruler ship that exercise its authority over others but rather it was a servant leadership it was not one the stablishment self as i'm the boss in our culture today we have three god's we have or lord god of heaven we have ourselves and then we have everybody else and everybody's trying to dominate everybody else and control and say what has to happen but obviously that's not biblical servant leadership however is biblical where relation lay we love and share in top together everything jesus did for us was relational dying on the cross that doesn't mean there are no rules doesn't mean there's chaos it doesn't mean that there's no authority there is authority with authority is not to dominate authority is to guide to protect in the shelter but in today's culture that's not the rule of the day so we have leftist progressives socialist communist we have all kinds of 'isms we have the pope is he brings destruction and to the catholic church do his wicked beliefs turning aside from the fundamentals of the face we have on every side the systems of today of control that's vanity fair so essentially there's no difference between vanity fair in the city of destruction vanity fair is simply the city of destruction with the party dress on it's the place where the most productive attractions of the world takes center stage it attempts to deal us from jesus christ it's meant to to cool are arden fire to belong to jesus it's meant to shake are confidence in the reality that god is who he says he is an declaws us just say if it's going to be it's up jimmy not up to god and so submission is not a part of the vocabulary if you please a vanity fair in vanity fair liv those that are called broad minded who hate the narrow self fashioned conservative position that says preserve what is good and avoid what is evil it's a place where christians are invited to rest wouldn't from what is seen as do over will ming control of jesus and so arises out of that city of saying that jesus is a hard man that is hard to follow jesus can i tell you the day it is not hard to follow jesus it's hard to follow the ways of the world and the flash and the devil is easy to follow jesus if one is simply plea willing to lay down their life in other lee submit to jesus andy if were willing to submit to one another in love and righteous actions now since i say that somebody is going to say but that means then there's no authority under new rules and it's all chaos no that's not what it means at all vanity fair is a place where christians have stolen from them their love for jesus and it's a place where all of the wicked amusements of the world rise up and say come play with me it's where the movies are all being shown is where all the.

"In this book, pilgrim's progress, we've been talking about the narrow path, and the broad path. And we, of course, all recognize that the narrow passes the path of holiness and the broad path is the way of the world. But could I tell you a secret? In truth, the narrow path. Is the wide path. And the broad path. Is a tiny little road called prison. It looks broad to us from our perspective, because we don't see the fullness of God's glory. In this world. We want everyone to approve of us. We wanna be recognized. We wanna be accomplished. We wanna have our lifestyle. It's all the broad path that leads us to hell. The path that we call the narrow path the highway of holiness kings, I way. It's wide enough for all of us to walk. And it leads straight to the gate of the celestial city. And you have to make decision are you going to allow God to cut your heart? Are you going to allow the Holy Spirit to come on cats feed into your life and begin to grow conviction of your sin or you're going to push him away? And are you going to say, you can't have entrance into my life? Because if you come into my life, you're going to spoil my deal. If you wanna receive the Holy Spirit, I'm going to give you three steps. They're not original with me. They come out of revival. Number one. A deep conviction. Of your personal depravity. Revival begins. With that deep conviction of my sin. And today if as you're sitting here you're saying, you know, I can't really think of any sin, and I can't think of any real depravity in my life. And I don't see the vile -ness of myself. The newer far far from the kingdom of God. The closer, you come to Jesus. The voice vileness you'll see in your own heart. The more you come into his presence, the greater will be the conviction that there is absolutely no way for you to ever. Enter into the kingdom of God saved by the grace of the blood of Jesus that nothing, you can do will earn you that place. That it is a gift of grace from first to last that only by the power of the blood of Jesus can this violence ever, be wiped out of my heart. Only by the blood of Jesus, can these since ever, be forgiven me. If you're living unconscious that vial -ness of your heart today, you are far from Jesus and far from the kingdom of God. And you are subject to the judgments that are coming upon this earth. The second step. There must be an entire devotion of the whole man to God service and a hearty obedience to his whole will. In other words, there has to come in your heart. As Jesus convicts. You buy a spirit of your sin and you pray through victory. And, you know, the presence of God, you give yourself utterly and completely into the hand of God. You don't hold back anything. You don't hold back friends. You don't hold back money. You don't hold back anything from him. You know, your sin, you know, the kind of person you are without the blessing of Jesus, in your heart, you know, that you would be as a Hitler, if left unchecked by the, Holy Ghost, if the restraining power of the spirit was removed from your life, you know, you would plunge into the depths of vileness, if you don't know that about yourself. Then you will not take the next step and give yourself totally into the hand of God, because that alone is the only place where victory is won over sin. I wanna say just one more quick thing about that. Some of us have in our experience sinned against God repented, and then syndicates God and then repented and then sinned against God. Why? Because we're utterly self absorbed. Because our focus is on our own life, and our own trauma, and our own needs, and desires, not on Jesus. You can't overcome sin by focusing on sin, you overcome sin by focusing on Jesus by putting your faith in him by saying Jesus only you can deliver me and I'm now standing by faith. I am delivered from this wickedness, and I hate this sin that. And you name it, if it's out go hall, I hate this alcohol in the name of Jesus. I have nothing to do with you devil. I renowned shoe in the name of Jesus. I am given into his hand, and I will serve Jesus alone. Until you take that position you'll have no real victory over sin. There must be hardy obedience, and I love when he says. Not just obedience. It's not grudging obedience. Have you ever was the child corrected them? I can remember my daughters. They would finally do what I ask them to do. Sometimes with this scale on their face. It was..

"pilgrim" Discussed on And That's Why We Drink

"I was thinking more like in first grade we had this play that anyone that went to school with me knows exactly what I'm talking about. Thank you. Thank you pilgrims and half of the class where half the cost. This Virginia in the nineties. So let's just remember that no already how bad it will anyway, I was a pilgrim things in work for the. But I mean like in this play, like everyone got along and like of course you shared a meal. It was alright beautifully and everyone like hugged, and then America became great show. You know the real truth of American history that we teach on this podcast, right? Yeah. So you're listening anyway. So I think of little pilgrims, I think like me and eardrum Justice, pilgrims, sending. So if you didn't follow the rules of the little pilgrims, you would never return to your home. That play did. I'm laughing out of fear. Some of the rules that you needed to follow included, removing your hat and upper clothing which play went, take it back and turning clockwise direction when arriving to the shore. So you just took off your cash. Everyone started spinning in circles. Christine Vegas say this isn't half bad, but okay, let's keep going. So the stories. Whatever, whatever like potentially could happen if you'd like broke these rules. The stories were scary enough for the people that worked there that they refuse to be there after sunset, and they would always leave while daylight out and by nineteen eighty nine ships were having such a tough time travelling in the waters nearby and they could not navigate that there ended up being several shipwrecks. And so the plan at that point was they built a seventy four foot lighthouse to help people see, right, right. So. Yulin more. I lean more elite big on it big. I'll lighthouse was created at the two. Okay. Incomes, the lighthouse of my story, correct. Lighthouse was created at the tallest point on the largest island and since nineteen seventy one that was when the lighthouse became automated and now employs aren't actually needed there. But so since nineteen seventy-one, there are no permanent residents that live on the islands. But before the seventies, there was no wireless communication and the lighthouse keepers could only make contact with others on a good day. When the weather when the weather was was like, well enough to work with right, like clear with balls on posts next to the house using semaphore signals. Yeah, like the double flag signs. Yeah. Oh my God, they had balls that would move so you see, and then they would light up so you could actually like, oh my gosh, see the signal. So that's how they had. That's what they had to do crazy. The lighthouse keepers that lived there would work in a rotation where they were shifts of three men at a time, and there was a fourth one who always had two weeks off switch and in December nineteen hundred. Literally not even a year after this lighthouses built three men who were working, their names were James Donald. Although Donald name is also sometimes William. Apparently it's like maybe his name's William Donald or Donyell Donald William sharing. So I don't know if it's Donald or William. But most notes said Donald, but then sometimes I would be doing notes and all of a sudden William show up. And I was like, who the fuck is William who the. Fuck is anyway, I just stuck with Donald. So James was forty. Three. Donald was forty and Thomas was twenty eight. Oh, and they were the three men that were manning the lighthouse during the story. Got it in nineteen hundred. So there was a ship called the fair wind, and there was another ship called the Archer, and they both passed by the lighthouse on December fifteenth. And they noticed that the lighthouses lamp was not shining which is unheard of, especially with three towel with three f light keepers, like all their the lead ship, definitely been on four if you count William. She's can't. I can't stop myself. And so anyway, that was on December fifteenth. And both ships in Nazi light shining..
