Filmmaker Elijah Stephans on His New Documentary 'Send Proof'
"I go. I hear about miracles. Some of them are baloney but most of them are true. They're people that i know and trust and they give you details but we live in a world where people act as though there's no such thing as a miracle or who i've never seen proof i've never That's sort of legitimate In any event. I've often said to friends of mine like ken fish or others. That you know you've got to document this because people they won't take your word for it. They people are very skeptical. Well there's good news. I don't know what it is but there's good news. No there is good news. I know what it is. I know what the good news is. And i know what these small g. Small and good news is today. There's a film out called send proof it's about the very thing i have been discussing with me. Filmmaker elijah stevens. That's you yes. Stevens now you come to us from reading california right. That's far away a long trip. That's where my friends of bill. And benny johnson live and he relation. No no relation or relation. You you made a film called cent proof about the very thing we're talking about so i wanna find out first of all. Tell my audience in thirty seconds. What what is this film. This is my journey to go. See if there's evidence for miracles especially healing miracles. What the doctor say what the philosophers say what the skeptics say. What mike shurmur say or james randi guy who call peter popoff with an ear piece. I try to all those. Those are super skeptics. Super scott who are pretending to be like harry houdini with the spiritualists and they ounces. They're trying to undo the now. Listen that's not a bad thing. Because i get annoyed would be putting it mildly. If there's any tomfoolery. And he phoniness whatever. Now i've not seen any but you know that there's some people out there but the to my mind. Almost all of the people who talk about this stuff are are are straight shooters because there are a tiny handful of frauds out there. Hollywood goes with the fraud narrative and you see all these films about fraudulent faith healing and stuff so it's a great thing that you decided to make a film like

"Let's rock out with martin. Is indeed martin popoff here back again for another episode of history and five songs with martin. Popoff this is the show where i picked five examples to make some kind of point about something. We are brought to you by the good people. At pantheon. podcasts. Were part of a vast always expanding. Pantheon podcast network available on spotify. I tunes megaphone forty other podcast platforms all right This is one that really does feel like a good historical episode You know along the lines of a lot of were trying to fill in gaps of a history of something This is episode one hundred sixteen. I'm going to be calling this recording badly on purpose The other cool thing about this episode. It's is one of these that i thought i can't believe i haven't done this before because this is always a point. I you know elliptically make time time and time again when i'm talking about certain bands You know certain cool qualities that they have So yes this is going to be about a bands that were so brave as to use the recording process as a as a tool itself to to emit or evoke the personality of the band and they literally Did not go for the best sounding thing that they could have done. at the time So again there's sort of a sort of a bravery towards a using the studio as an artistic thing but But but not just trying to say. I want the most high fidelity thing going now in interesting thing about this so obviously we you know we generally tend to To talk about hard rock and heavy metal here and this is actually going to be one of those episodes again. But it's funny that This idea of recording badly on purpose. Which is how i always put it It's a for for hard rock and heavy metal. It's a little different than This this whole treatise that can go down the line of the idea of lo fi and down another line of noise rock those kind of two different things that don't really apply to the bands that we're going to talk about here. Sure there's some overlap but there's but there's quite a bit of difference most of the examples that you hear When you talk about lo fi bands or noise rock bands. Lo fi usually leans towards You know many bands. Many vibrant bands many bands throughout many generations But all kinds of falling into that alternative rock sort of end of things. Noise rock is a little more of an artistic thing and it can be. It can be very noisy and egregious and abstract to the point of almost being like performance art. I would say at some time so noise. Rock has a little bit more of that already. Already you know highfalutin kind of thing and lo fi goes a little bit towards alternative rock. Maybe these terms will come up again as i talk about these. I don't know but anyways let's play our first one and discuss a take a listen to this. This is the stooges with nine.

"Now we were in college right at the birth of grunge so we were into all the grunge bands. But when you weren't listening to grunge or alternate if it was always separate and i have very explicit memories of especially late night when the night is winding down and you're putting on that zepplin box because of the nineties what was better than a five disc. Cd changer that you would awful okay. We had the box set. We had box set to the three disc masters and they would they would drop in like you know maybe an unreleased song hair there or something and you you want to consume as much as you could and we would listen to it all the time and we would just listened to it and talk about it and like this song so different. Jay talked about around zeppelin four. You know four sticks is so different than black dog which is so different from going to california but it brings everybody together because this something for everybody. That is so much different things going on with the band that that that that attracts people that love music in in depending on what mood urine is depending on what zeppelin album. You may listen to Today you know what. I love presents. You know what. I'm gonna play zeppelin three today. Or i haven't heard code a while i'm gonna. I'm gonna listen to that because that has some great songs that no one ever plays you know. Zeus you talked about underrated. I always come back to this quote from the great martin. Popoff fellow pantheon zeppelin god. Who's written tons of books zeppelin. He had this great quote. And he said. I've spent my whole life wrestling with the idea of led zeppelin as overrated. And he says how can you not be overrated when you are rated the way that they are as gods walked the earth who can live up to that and it's such a great point because listen to the way we're talking about this band and if there are people that aren't into zeppelin they're going to be like. Wow i gotta listen to zeppelin so it they are almost overrated because they are so iconic in such a cultural phenomenon but the four of us don't think that they're overrated in any way. How many of you guys are you know. Answer the same way. I always answer the question. When i'm asked what's your favorite leads up on saw and i always turn the person i say well. Are you talking about the songs you hear on the radio or the songs you don't hear on the radio 'cause there's really kind of two classifications right. There's the common casual fan that knows zeppelin stairway to heaven black dog roll kashmir although socks right.

"British steel has a more modern. Sound where. I can begin listening to the album. So so the point there was a little bit of the point of Did i pick a song that anyways. The idea is bluntly It's pretty it's pretty objectively easier to like firepower than it is to like stained class yet. Most fans Until they start the old one start dying off. Most fans are going to say stained classes the classic right not firepower reliable rights. I love the idea of punk. As the abstract art version of music that section the episode was probably the one that most resonated. I was just a hair too young to listen to pumpkin pie. Try to listen to it now.

"And five songs with martin popoff brought to you by the good people at pantheon podcast. We are part of vast and growing peppy and podcast network. They're all down at Rock and pod right now. I think that's maybe ending right around now but tie you can go on youtube and see some Some samples of what went down in nashville at rock and pod. But they were a big part of that But we are available on spotify itunes and over forty other podcasts platforms all right Okay so this episode This episode one hundred and eleven. Were calling this. You didn't have to be there now. This is the follow up on the last episode which was about having to be there So the the whole idea this just to give you a little background is when you're turning people on music Long story. i'm going to be going on sea of tranquility and peace got this new concept going where You know someone. Someone presents someone an album to try. I get them into and then the other one does the same and they compare notes cetera. So i i started thinking this concept of their certain things where you kind of had to be there to to be into them And that was the last episode that was episode one hundred ten and as hinted in that episode. There's the flipside of that. Where i think there are things that you can turn people onto in music. Proselytize just like a dj. That's the fun of this. As i explained in the last episode where. There's not really that element of you had to be. There didn't need massive massive context To think these things are great now we can have a debate. Are these things greater. Because of that i would say not necessarily their greater on an objective level on a flash level on a window dressing level. But they're not necessarily greater than the you had to be their stuff and we're gonna we're gonna compare notes on that so so here we go. Let's play our first selection of these all have different contours in different parameters to how You know by the end of the five pieces it feels like i've explained myself take a listen to.

"Why the hell are these places gonna close right. But the point of that i i. I've never understood that. 'cause what are you going to do. You're just going to open up as another venue. Yes what else Kings would did. They do concerts kings would anymore are so. That's a venue that's gone. That was pretty legendary right for the hair bandera and then the ontario place forum that remember the revolving stage right that that's now. I don't think they'd do bearing more. What else was closed Those are the main ones i remember. I mean exhibition stadium. Even i you know. I saw midnight oil there. That's where i saw the stones with living colour actually eighty thousand people right. Wow that's a venue that's closed. It's gone it's gone right. I mean that doesn't exist anymore. Right be most field now. It's now being field and it has to be that. Yeah so that's interesting that was gone. yeah i seem to remember a place in scarborough went to a couple of times this. Spend the odd bar. That's had amazing bands. Come in that you kind of blown away that got. Yeah yeah. that's the best remember. Sorry about that no. It's it's great. It's great to go down ideas you know there are so many amazing places The gasworks example right. Oh yeah see i. I've missed gasworks. I do have another one. Because when i first moved here i saw i. I did go to three shows at rock and roll heaven right when i hear underneath the bay right. Yes so about one. That's close. I went to net. Like i say i've never seen it show at the gasworks now. It's so i've got. I've got a last question. But i have two quick things i wanna hit. So you mentioned about the government and one of the one of my favorite shows that the government was seeing ministry there. What are your thoughts on ministry as a ban. I missed almost all of that. So you mentioned about the government and one of them. One of my favorite shows there early on was see ministry there the band ministry all missing all of that. Okay yeah there okay. Now i hear. I got some editing too dear. So you've mentioned about the government and one of my favorite shows at the government was early like i don't know eighty early mid any eighty two. Maybe it was seeing ministry at at the government Your thoughts on sort of ministry in that industrial heavy nece. Well i didn't see any of those shows ever. I mean. I saw rob zombie later on. I wasn't a big I wasn't a big fan. I didn't get too many of those shows. And that was. That was just before i of got into the business. When i first got here. I was working for xerox. I didn't know tim henderson. I we weren't doing the magazine. I didn't do self published my first book while bob lives just a music fan just like anybody else but i remember i remember having you know some some you know romantic love for that whole little thing ministry but you know the the whatever. It was the third the the big white zombie album early tool which isn't exactly industrial but early nine inch nails as well enough. I've done eighteen hundred nineteen hundred interviews Over the years With with bands. Right might my first. My first interview was trent wrestler at the height of their fame. So that was that was very nerve wracking to to like hold your first interview. Trent radner at on downward spiral right. So that was crazy. That's amazing but i was kind of that stuff at the time but but no i was not a big massive fan really And then you mentioned about..

"And they never looked back and then they kept pouring money into the show and it just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger and they'll never supported ever again so so even when they weren't selling a lotta records they were touring juggernaut was massive. Right like they'd come into town. It was a huge show. Even though they're on an album that barely went gold right fair enough so that was another thing about them. They always sold lots and lots of tickets and they always brought this massive show with a lot of video and a lot of pyro and crazy stuff to make up for the fact that you're just trio right. That's a lot of trios think that way like we got. We got a really do some extra stuff interesting. Let's talk about lost venues martin. Let's get to that segment Just now yes. I'm curious As a fan of live music around toronto where we all are curious if there is a venue or a number of venues that that don't exist anymore that you have fond memories of yeah so I would say the main ones for that. I can really only do this for toronto. And why not. Because i've been here thirty years now And been seeing lots of shows you know. We started doing a magazine in nineteen ninety four. So that's when. I really joined the business and we were constantly saying shows from then on over so the big ones that are gone. That have the fondest memories of would probably be the likes of the the big bop in the cathedral room which was call college or queen queen college down that end somewhere anyways where it is but i'm so it had the The cathedral room downstairs which smaller room and the big buff upstairs which was the bigger room. So all of these you know smallish. Heavy metal legends that We would interview and and go meet half the time you know all the time and get autographs lawton. Played there another one. That was pretty important more important than that. Even is the the warehouse in the government..

"You're a fraud right So so the superfan is kind of what you're aspiring to like impression to have that person to say you know you're you did a good job right because you know i i. I don't think i'm even the superfan on a superfan level of any ban that i've ever written about compared to you know the super fans that i know are out there on those bands right so yeah is i know go ahead. Yeah wha- what mind. Yeah the the reason i asked that is i think every time banned love every time the ban would go on tour. You'd hope that they'd stay together by the time they got to your city which was yes and i know we've written so that's what i thought i dislike and have heard so many stories of them in the studio and like i saw them at skydome in the round and it was like they were not interacting at all. I mean the musicianship. I to me as as a musician was unbelievable but i just that's why i asked who sort of pointed question. Yeah we'll see so that brings up a point like the yes book. I did a timeline and quotes book. So i've gone straight timeline. Books like thirty of those can. But i've done probably can timeline with quotes books. And so those are easy to do because you're just popping in stuff as they come to mind you just go to year off and so for me for me to write a proper book on. Yes that's all paragraphs and chapters that would intimidate me. Well because because you have so many balls to keep in the air and go back to this and all the guys doing the soul so there's so much arranging of i can imagine i can imagine last week. I think it was last week. Greg and i were chiding a bit about The capon. And all that. I'm not getting any of that. All right you let me know when you're back with us..

"Again. No worries bus on me. Mark tell me take a little break from russia here on. Tell me about Maybe played in a bunch of them. But i know you played in a band called torque. You were drummer Tell me a little bit about your style. about the ban. While i was very little of nothing. I mean the only reason anybody mentor knows about is because i ended up mentioning it every once in a while but no we were just a bar band in about nineteen eighty-four one summer You know we we were professional. We got paid. We went played the bars when we got paid and stuff. But i think it was only like when i came back from university one summer but but yeah we had a whole set list and played and traveled and had a week week here and two three days there and all that kind of stuff so we were just your basic hard rock cover band crappy band. I was never that great of a drummer. The big neil peer You know Peter chris influenced you know big pearl set with the big tune. Toms and all that kind of stuff and a lot of symbols. And and so you know i was. I was okay. I suppose just to get through a bar band situation but we were just a a hard rock band and we were you know we were pretty snooty about what we played. We played some of the hits but we played a lot of obscure songs as well. So you know we would. The dance floor is not not very full. Just like just like rush you know when they talked about their early days. They said we would clear dance floors. You know we we. You know the rush is definitely not a i get up a dance of bougie band right so And and obviously still to this day. It's you know the the famous thing about About women at rush shows. They're called getty corns right. 'cause they're unicorns are so rare to show so there was this nickname for a getty court so anyway so that was just one summer in the interior. All right all right hugh stories of good so there was no dreams of of glory value. Never never really cared like even oddly being you know. Oddly being a such a complete music freak never took it that seriously thinking. Oh i want to actually do this just the same way now. Writing all these books. I have no no desire at all to write fiction. Books never never crossed my mind really. I wanna do art. I i do art. And i've done in the past that's sold some things and done a cool little new book that i did. Thirty nine illustrations for made prints of them and selling those prints is limited branson. I love art. That's really what i wanna do. That's what i've always wanted to do. And i'm going to spend more time at that getting older now but no never never really tried super hard to do the rock and roll. I don't know why it's just weird. You wise beyond your your your time..

"Still one news piece right so i suppose you know if you know if you the pr to get the word out there and stuff there you actually get twelve times as much news out of putting out a single every once in a while as you would putting out you talked about rush not looking at other bands. But i know you mentioned a bit Martin in in this last book. I think it's neil that had a liking for in living color Which i think is greg's all-time favourite band yup curious. If they're not you in living alert martin. He knows nothing about music. I don't even know why. He's hosting a music podcast. I mean this is just like he knows nothing anyway. Started carolina saying. I don't remember anything about this quote. So i'm going. He was a huge fan of the comedy show. Why why isn't jim carey in a rock band. That's all i wanted to but yeah living. Let this quote. There's a lot of query go live eight hundred remember i get. I don't. I'm not sure you're talking here. I remember talking to neil about living color but i imagine with respect to some relatively ideological stance nothing directly affecting the band. So it's in your who is saying that That you are talking to rupert's. I think rupaul rupert hine. Okay right So reports producing them in like eighty nine and ninety two. You're talking in. Living color was a big hit in eighty eight with Open letter to a landlord and cult of personality. Those were the two hits right. yeah and then they got the coveted backing slot on the rolling stones. Steel wheels juggernaut right so they were a big band right there. They were banned in only lasted one album. Because they were very very unaccessible. They were noisy allowed. I mean outside of cult personality. They were hard to get into and then the next album came out and it was. It was really even more hard to get heavy heavy. Brace of annoys. Ian ragged range right. I loved it. Yeah and the next album was was quite bizarre as well. So so they don't very artistic guys right They they were not they were not going to be You know pop stars in making hits and stuff. So i can understand why neal like them although you know come to think of it. It's a bit of an odd quote because kaz living color is not very much like rush except for the creative fearlessness. But they're but they're much more unmethodical put it that way. They're much more chaotic than than russia's. But yeah you can understand in And i i don't even remember the drummer's name right now but i'm sure it was a good drummer. Insurers amazing trevor had doug doug win bishen air vernon vernon reid right Yeah corey glover died so that. That's the name of the drummer that the what. What do you call him. But buzz skill months skins. Who was the drill. Yeah okay yeah right. And the other guys. I mean i remember even had an in person interview with them at the At the opera house here And listening to stories of doug wimbush playing with all these massive massive guys like he was a big studio guys. Well so you can understand. Neil appreciating them as musicians for sure. Yeah my apologies will call. Who is the drummer okay. Doug replaced muslim base. Yeah okay yeah. Thank you for that greg. I mess up a you go heavy on me. It's like he shows us all up all getting great. Yeah how many books have you written. Greg i'm.

"And syndrome divisions ground. I yeah and like You know keyboard. Sounds that are dated. But because they're so intellectually curious and technologically curious. They're early adopters. When you're an early adopter of stuff you know that that's when you know you haven't let everybody else do the groundwork and figure out what's good taste bad taste. You're just in there doing the stuff in bad taste right right off the bat. So and then you get to later albums like vapor trails or snakes and arrows or even the last one where there were there really offline their own path and not sounding like anybody You know there's so many times they could have gone in one direction or another. They never tried the industrial direction. They never tried the new wave of british heavy metal direction. They never tried the new wave direction or say the early new direction. They kind of Later when i suppose power windows hold your fire. I suppose but So yeah that's and they would admit that as well they actually think some of their albums are are somewhat semi failures or whatever and other ones are are successes. But i think when they look back. They're proud of moving ahead quickly all the time. It's interesting you mentioned about sort of the canadian inferior already pro complex kind of thing because I've worked with different software companies down in the us and there was one company out of mass that i worked with. And you know three or four of the guys i worked with were massive rush fans and they couldn't like they knew i was a fan of rush like growing up as a kid in that but like they couldn't understand how we didn't idolize them even more than we did. Not that's us as a canadian collective you know get we love rush. Would we love tragically hip. You know but but moroccan buds just thought. We should've idolize the more that we should have given more credit. We should be loving them more. Know what you like. What do you think about sort of the us. Audience view towards. Yeah you know australian fan international. Speak the same way french hands. Think all their own bands sock and you know. British british bands realize like. We're nothing until we make it in america so it's always like that right But canada definitely has that at and again. Maybe it is somewhat the subconscious self-consciousness through the subconscious You know understanding that. There's been cancun in our life. Our whole lives right You know where we've had canadian music forced on us and we don't really know always think it's all that great so you know we. We'd flip through the racks kids. And you'd see a lot of canadian stuff get released right And then and then you always thought it was a little embarrassing sounding so so you always think. The grass is greener in america's wild and exotic and really cool and all that. But the funny thing about rush..

"Sort of let the afghanistan story drift off the map as a canada's involvement and it and i had not thought about the people who worked with us that were left behind at all. While i think a lot of us are are in that same boat. Because quite honestly i wasn't in the forefront of my mind but i will tell you that as recently as as yesterday i've had my fellow veterans ratio to me and say. Hey we saw your piece on c. tv news Interpreters sent me an email. He's still stuck in kansas city How how can we help these people out so from grassroots level from my former soldiers that i've worked together with Former supervisors my peers has been Strongly supportive has anybody in government aside from your mp who initially reached out to you engaged. On this. i don't think so from my perspective. I got a message by email from my own member of parliament in Just a a message of support For for my efforts to help my The most recent that. I was hoping but other than that. No not that i've seen and lastly just asking you to speak only for yourself again. Why do you think we've left these people behind. It doesn't seem to mesh with the talk. We talk. I guess about canada's involvement overseas. And what we do over there. Well i think we kind of from an institutional standpoint just viewed interpreters may be a bit as a as a as a resource We were in afghanistan. We use the interpreters. And i think because not a lot of our public understands exactly what we were doing in afghanistan or exactly how earned has helped us Didn't seem like a big issue during during the war For a while. That was quite a lot of support. Red fridays everything. Like this and then that sort of waned as people got into other things and forgot about it and because the interpreters really only ever You know interacted with us. Who were there. And then we came back and from the government in population perspective. What we're back. We're safe a great survived. The war but We as a military folks and including those still serving the commanders of the missions. I guess it never considered it as part of the plan to exit afghanistan. And i really think we to the detriment of people that gave a lot for us. We overlook them institutionally mark. Thank you for this. And i hope your campaign starts getting subtraction.

Do OCE Players & Proving Grounds Help?
"Try my contract. Co host mark zimmerman. Who last week. When i said i'm really worried that this weekend is going to suck from game perspective. He said. nah it's all good dog and then on sunday he tweeted. Wow can't wait to analyze this game. Three what obeying her or something to that extent. How we feel about these games. Do they live up to your expectations. David task fucking sucks bro. I don't know what you want me to say. I don't think they're going to go out there and give out like power. Picks every single game every position while they draft some like weird ass counterpane stuff. I didn't i didn't call that one in my prep. So that's on me. sorry. I thought it'd be fun. eeg tsm delivered. I'd say though that was a pretty fun series slobby too. I mean i was okay i guess just kind of like in my mind. It was like okay. Well we know. Tsm's the better team. They went out they. They won three games but eg to the normal thing where they like randomly popoff and have a great game. And then here we were just i. I think you didn't predict three one and it went through like just travis is only ability to appreciate a series as if it's an upset or like hold on if we had those exact same gets easy was up in the last two games at those exact games but definitely doesn't get hooked and then easy doesn't get played randomly last game. How would you feel about the series then so radically. It goes to five games right on three one. I mean if it yeah. I mean i think he had like suddenly upset. Tsm that would feel crazy. No one expected that other than dash on this or that he was like i watch this or that. And he's like. I think this is heavily favored for eg and. I was like who is low. I'm glad you just outed yourself. Not watching the countdown. Because i'm pretty sure to people on countdown predicted. Eg yeah who being one of them and then we got it was human razz right. Who predicted g. o. Me at high. Okay rats predicted.
Esports League Rundown
"Start this week over here and most beautiful place. On god's green earth in downtown santa monica with the l. c. s. aright where the grass is green and. The pain is over fifty. We are starting with our week. Five results here starting at the top of the table. We've got an interesting rundown for you in terms of standings and by interesting i mean this should come as absolutely zero surprise to anyone who's been falling for any amount of time here this year in first place cloud nine at ten and two tied for second we have. Tsm and one hundred thieves at eight and four fourth place as a three way. Tie to round out your playoff teams evil geniuses dignatories and team liquid all remain in control of their destiny immortals to entire games behind in seventh place. Fly quest down there at four and eight and eighth and tied for ninth place. We've got seal g and golden guardians. Who that's for the in terms of standings. Let's talk cloud nine top of the table. In how did they do this week. Nine had a banger of a weekend. I'm really really satisfied with how this team performed this weekend. Everyone is looking fantastic right now. Honestly perks has some absolutely popoff. Plays on yasuo in the blank. This weekend He was looking awesome blabber. Just absolutely runs train on one hundred thieves on olaf. He's still looking amazing. I honestly don't understand how this guy still getting. Olaf when champion pool is more like an ocean. I guess you know. It's kind of hard to ban out. Everyone right yeah and then you know they also had just a pretty good win vs golden guardians. This was a really really good week for c. Nine they displayed a a show of dominance that i think is important for them to show versus lower tier teams and upper tier teams like hundred thieves the takeaway from this weekend see nine looking fantastic. I'm happy with this team. And my favorite thing about this team this season so far is they have displayed the ability to play like everything they can play. All sorts of different team calms they can play all sorts of different styles and be super successful on it so lots to love from. Cnn radio man. I wonder what it's like to be a fan of a team. That's like the best in the region. Can you feel so good what it feels like to be yankees fan fan now recently. Hey man at least. I always tell myself no matter how bad things get. At least i'm not. Cgi got even fan. Just seal g actually entire org. at least you're as an entity the idea mostly. Yeah yeah oh yeah. I was just gonna say overall c nine great weekend moving on. Yeah and i think a key point here is they did go up against one. Hundred thieves created separation against a team. That's currently tied for second. They did in just such an incredible manner. It was like every single lane. One like blabber just played out of his mind perks actually styled on monday on the blank it was just such an awesome game. In addition to that there was actually a little not really an interview but ls during. I think it was a co starring. He was doing as well. Fudge seanang fudge came on just chatted back and forth with him a little bit and revealed that perks. Basically said yeah. It's just demonte. I could totally take leblanc into him and fucking popped off. I think he got a level. Three solo kill level three or level. Four to play a little vision. Game with perks had award kinda thwarted the whole thing and it cost him onto his life. Basically and the game like there's no way or less. Yeah that snowballed everything out of control so his brutal really really. Well played for nine showing that even if they were close in the standings. This matchup is just so nine favored. There's also been a lot of chatter specifically from people who are in the know that one hundred thieves has a major mental block against the nine. They absolutely hate playing against him. So little fun. Little tidbits for y'all there. All right seni- jumping down to. Let's talk about the two teams tied aid right now for second place. Tsm and hundred thieves. We'll start with the less fun. One which is of course hundred thieves. Who has kinda struggled a little bit throughout the course of this entire split. Not looking nearly as strong as i think we all would of hoped. Jack's talked me about their weekend. All right so other than the cloud nine game that we just touched on mcleod nine blew them out of the water. Hundred thieves mostly had a good weekend. They beat seattle g. They had a close call but they then recovered from their close call. Took control of the game back from seattle jian won the game Close calls is more of like they. Lucked out into a wake-up hopefully they don't make same kind of mistakes of leading finn. Just do ridiculous nar things when his team's losing miserably they literally flipped a to k gold lead into four k gold back. Yeah and flip within like eight minutes. Yeah it was stupid. That's nuts g. You can hear this hill shawn's voice because the game had it but from the perspective of hundred thieves like other than the one mistake that was such a huge swing the game. Well they played really well against dignatories capping the shit out of fate god and the rest of the team playing fine or or well depending on the player like demonte didn't have a great day in general. Don't they didn't have a great weekend in general. Let's be honest but then yeah the cloud nine game like to cut blown out in twenty four minutes. It was brutal you mentioned it was monte attempts to do a bush play like bait something to get away and that was the only thing like someday played without respect for fudge it all and got punished repeatedly for it like it was rough. It was really rough.

Stuck Holding Double Badgers
"So a game that me and Tom Played on the Internet of all places just the other day on a service table Topa. Could Renisha. Insisted on calling it repeatedly in a frankly probably slightly racist manner anyway. Is a glorious creation of dominoes and domination featuring animals. The surround little patches of ground how flowers and trees placed on them that eventually popoff. Awarding points the person in control of that area. Now, this is a game by Michael Kiessling and Wolfgang Kramer who you might know Rassoul and our grand. But this isn't the first time they've worked together created the mask trilogy, of Decal, Mexica and cosker. which are all as quince points out in this document I'm reading from. There were lovely. Lovely Gates. Mexico is an absolute delight. So a lot of time for these two when it comes to games way you place lucky things on maps in ways going to irritate other players, which is all I remember was the game in Mexico. Now. This has an immediately striking theme could re nature. You have these dominoes that you're drawing up from when holding three of them in your hand anytime. Each. Domino. As you might expect, has a little image on either side of it and they're all different types of animals, some birds, some badges, some bloody aisles, and I kept drawing double owls, which was a nightmare because there was nowhere for to connect to, and really you are just taking intends to play a domino style game where you have this grid, put them out onto but the placement rules. As you would expect from Domino's you cannot put an owl and up against Abacha and that is illegal as we learned in the story of Adam and Eve. The trickiness is no freefall with this. There is a specific grid that you can follow and as you play, you're going to be slowly surrounding these enclosures and everytime put down domino on the board in one of the enclosed spaces adjacent to it. which is kind of patch of dirt. You may place one of your selection of the light full. Phone Ah. La. Fauna for them foreigner in flora. So you can place like a little bit of grass or you can place like shrubbery. Shrub or you can place like a small tree or you can place a massive trade and there's no cost for place in these things it's just that you have a very limited amount of all of these things. Even a couple of massive trees you got loads of grass up the scoring valleys of these things obviously scale up as you go along and the trick is. The moment at which that soiling closure is fully surrounded by Dominos always surrounded as it is possible for it to be. You'll immediately score that. Who has the largest score of trees and shrubberies and graphics as you're in that area is going to get the big prize bonus with whoever second, getting a lesser known but a big thing. Is No one else? Is there you get the big bonus and the little bonus which means you have the strange game of creeping domino's our across the board. Whilst trying to take control of areas but obviously you're not. You'll never connecting your dominos you're connecting to anyone's domino's so becomes. The game, it reminded me most of that. She was T- GRISSOM Euphrates of it being more than anything a game of of having is everywhere and. Saying the place you should be putting a thing down the thing you should be blocking next

A Star In Orion Is Dimming. Is It About To Explode?
"One of the brightest stars in the night sky is named beetlejuice is about six hundred fifty light years away which is pretty close in outer space terms and if you've gazed eased up into the night sky and seen the Constellation Orion. You've seen beetlejuice before. So if you were to look up at it you would want to start by finding the three stars that make a nice little line that we call a Ryan's belts and then beetlejuice is as you're looking at it. The shoulder of Orion on the left. Emily Leveque is an astronomer at the University University of Washington who studies stars like beetlejuice which is known as a red supergiant supergiant because this star is enormous much bigger than our sun. If if you were to put beetlejuice where our son is it would swallow up all of the planets out past Mars and because it's so massive it means that it goes through a very different sort of life experience than our Sun will which brings us to why we're talking about beetlejuice right now. In recent weeks astronomers have noticed that beetlejuice. It's no longer appears to be one of the brightest stars. In the night sky there were sort of quick reports put out from people who monitor and observe beetlejuice very frequently. Saying you know it's getting dimmer and dimmer it's starting to get closest to the dentist we've seen there's also big dedicated networks of amateur astronomers that keep very close track of the brightness of stars like beetlejuice and they started noticing the same thing when we called Emily. She was preparing for this big astronomy conference in Hawaii Hawaii and she thought there would be a lot of buzz there about the dimming of beetlejuice beetlejuice is going to be a big topic. I'm sure especially family. She told us a Ryan is her. Favourite Constellation Constellation. But actually you don't have to be a pro astronomer to see what's happening with beetlejuice you can look for yourself at one point. beetlejuice was one of the brightest rytas stars in Orion. But now not so much so if you were to go up and look at it tonight it's dimmer than the star in Iran's right knee which is Ri- Joel and it's about equal in brightness to Ryan's other shoulder which is a star named Bella tricks so the fact that we can see with our eyes. That got noticeably dimmer really caught a lot of people's attention and then spiralled as just a wow. This is a really interesting and compelling thing changing sort of on our timescale in the night sky. So what's going on as we'll explain with help from Emily Leveque. Scientists have a few theories for why BETA disappear so dim and in the most dramatic explanation. Is that this star could be about to die. What's known as going SUPERNOVA? It would look pretty epic. I'm Emily Kwong filling informatics format today. This is short wave the daily science podcast from NPR. So here's the thing there's been quite a bit of speculation that the reason beetlejuice getting dimmer is that it's about to go Supernova. That's the big explode e end to the lifespan of a massive star and while dimming can mean that's about to happen for reasons that will get into it's not the most likely scenario for beetlejuice but first we had to clear up something with astronomer. Emily Leveque is this very cool star named after the tenth highest biased grossing film of One thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I'm pretty sure that it's the other way around. The spelling is different and sometimes here astronomers pronounce a little bit differently. Bentley will say beetlejuice instead of beetlejuice. Three times But it's actually derived from a Arabic name and there's I think some disagreement on what exactly it means but either means the arm of Orion or the hand of Orion or the hand of the hunter because the total constellation is looks like a person hunting. It's the only can I be honest. The only constellation I can ever successfully identify. Isn't that belt. It's very telling so I'll admit it's the easiest constellation and for me to identify to This is one of those. Well kept secrets of astronomy. A lot of us are embarrassingly bad at finding things in the night sky because we're used to looking at things that are so so dim that you can't see them with their own eyes and our telescopes have amazing computers. That can help us find things so we'll occasionally go out and look up and do just what a lot of people doing fine like that familiar. Little Line of three or another easy constellation to get our bearings A.. Let's talk about how astronomers such as yourself people who really study V. Stars have noticed something different about how beetlejuice looks in the night sky. How does it look different? So I will say we've been monitoring the brightness of beetlejuice for decades its and we've been measuring its brightness very frequently and we've seen its brightness change with times we've watched it get brighter and dimmer. This just caught people's attention because it was close close to the dentist that beetlejuice has ever been and what could dimming like this indicate so our guest right now is that what we're seeing is a combination of a few behaviors that we see in red super giants and that we've seen before in beetlejuice. The just happened to be coinciding. So we know that stars like beetlejuice. Have big support of boiling convective cells near their surfaces seal sort of get a bright hot spot and a slightly dimmer cool spot and it's entirely possible that this dimming is due in part to those convective cells we also know that stars like beetlejuice will actually shed off some mass from their outer layer. sobel sort popoff. The outermost layers of the star when that mass hits the Interstellar medium. It'll condense into what we call dust and dust dust in space kind of does. What does here it blocks light and gets in the way and can be a little bit of a nuisance but it would make star look a little bit dimmer if it then had a little veil of dust around it we also know that stars like this can pulse eight a little bit so their outer layers will sort of squeeze in puff out just due to instabilities in those layers and that'll also affect how bright the star looks so? I think the current guests is that we're seeing a couple different behaviors in beetlejuice. That on their own aren't too to strange. That just happened to be coinciding to make the star look especially dim so just as a thought experiment say beetlejuice is going to go Supernova. Br Nova how would we know. And what would it look like. So first of all the light that we're seeing from beetlejuice was emitted by the star about six hundred and fifty years ago. beetlejuice is a six hundred and fifty light years from Earth so when the light emerges it comes toward us as fast as it can but it's moving at the speed of light so looking at Beta Jesus a little bit like looking back in time to what the Star was actually doing six hundred and fifty years ago in terms of whether we will see beetlejuice go Supernova in our lifetimes beetlejuice and other massive stars like this kind of follow a live fast die young philosophy so they live about ten million with an m years beetlejuice in particular we know is moving into a later stage of its life because it is so big and so red but that could mean that we still have one hundred thousand years before it dies and produces a Supernova If it did though say we all went outside tomorrow and we we were seeing the light arrive from babies dying as a Supernova six hundred and fifty years minus day sometime in the Middle Ages. Let's say okay it. It would look pretty epic we have some records of other SUPERNOVA. That happened in the Milky Way and their appearance parents is incredibly dramatic. What we would see is Bagel juice getting brighter and brighter? Because we'd be seeing the incredibly bright signature of the SUPERNOVA explosion explosion. It would actually get so bright that if beetlejuice was up during the day we'd be able to see it during the daytime alongside the sun and it would last for for weeks and I think that if beetlejuice were to go supernova tomorrow and we saw it at night it would be comparable in brightness. I think to the full moon. ooh Wow we'd be able to see are shadows based on the light from the SUPERNOVA. Okay so what would it look like for beetlejuice more of a going collapsing inward on itself. I I am more of them. Exploding outward with star debris scattering across the universe. What what does it look like for Adl juice? It's a good question in it. We think that it's a bit of both both okay initial disruption comes when the core of the star collapses and depending on the type of star. And how much mass is in that core. It'll collapse into to a neutron star or a black hole after that collapse all the outer layers of the star come falling in toward the core and then bounce back off in a sort of rebound shock and that shock is what we see as a Supernova and what we would call a supernova because we see this outward blast of material you know new gas slamming into the interstellar medium and getting really bright and it looks to us like an explosion but it originally did start as a collapse. It's why I try to avoid saying that a star exploded as a SUPERNOVA. Because it's not to be the pedantic scientist it's not quite the first thing that happened in the star. But it's a bit Moroccan role as a turn of phrase. Oh yeah how would you so. This star is a part of your favorite constellation or Ryan and how would you feel if if indeed it we're we're going SUPERNOVA. I would be psyched. And I think some people expect that we would be very sad but it's a very exciting citing transition to watch and this would be one of the best studied stars we have available to US producing a Supernova. which right now is a process that we're you're still trying to understand we'd still be able to see the Supernova as it happened and then faded away these stars also leave behind what we call supernova remnants? So they're these these beautiful multicolored gas clouds that show us the dissipating material from the star. So it would be this amazing font of data and new ways to understand stars so I think it would be incredibly exciting.
