"Yeah. I followed things that broke in my house and as examples. And basically, the whole point of this article is you are no longer buying hardware, even though you think you're buying. You're buying software. Yeah. And not only buying services. You're buying independent or interdependent software and services for different vendors. Yeah. And it just constantly degrades. You can not get a device that's going to consistently, if you hook it up to anything else, an update might break it. A new feature role might break it. All you never know. And so I just kind of wrote this. I didn't think it would very well. I just kind of like fine. I'm just writing this because let me say something. Natalie flights. You got picked up 11 hours ago by hacker news. 288 comments all of them pretty much agreeing with you. A lot of reinforcement. I think there's always the guys that I've never have those problems, but yeah, there's all the, you know, there's a subset of people. There's the well, this is why I never put any of this stuff in my house to begin with. There's the you would never have this problem if you installed open-source. Whatever professional installer or whatever. And then there's the people who are like, yeah, this does suck in, who actually recognize that it's a problem. This isn't just a problem for the smart home industry. It's a problem for consumers. It's a problem for manufacturers, and it's going to be a legal problem because we like I said, everybody's hardware. Your car, your corporate, I don't know. Manufacturing machines. They're all becoming software. And software has different ownership require different requirements by the manufacturers like different obligations for security and things like that. It has a different product for the it's a different product for the consumer. And we don't realize that. There's a good story actually this week from ars technica on people buying the Nordic track, something attacking it. Yeah. And hacking it. And then Netflix. Yeah, they have to, they were like, this thing has a 32 inch screen on it. I love it. I'm gonna hack it. So we're gonna base Android. We'll just sideload Netflix, YouTube, and whatever we want. Apparently, Nordic track was like, you know what? We're going to update this. It's easy to sideload stuff. And maybe Nordic track didn't realize it was breaking a critical functionality that people loved. But Nordic track didn't offer it as a formal functionality. So for their perspective, they're kind of in the clear and maybe they want to do a business model where they do a deal with YouTube for exclusive access. These are the sorts of things a lot of the conflict about the stuff we're buying today is conflicts about, is it hardware or software? Well, and more even more, it's often you own the hardware, but you don't own the software. And so as a result, you don't really own the device. You don't control it. And it's not just home automation. Everything. It's your car. It's your car. It's your John Deere combine. My favorite comment in the hacker news thread from Brian Rasmussen, very simple, there will come soft rains. Which, if your Ray Bradbury fan, you know exactly what they're referring to. Is that from the veldt or is that actually the name of the story I'm trying to remember? You should tell everyone who doesn't know that story. Well, the veldt is a great example. Let's see. Oh yeah, there will come soft rains is the story and it's after the nuclear meltdown. There's nothing left except the automated devices, which.

But then he has this line. He says he connects dreicer in bradberry by saying that They are both naturalists but bradberry turns to fantasy whereas a theater dreicer is all about social critique. Here is the thing cameron. Here's the thing that michael new at age thirteen. That stephen king didn't know in nineteen eighty eight. Like he's like thirty three or something Ray bradbury wasn't a naturalist. Naturalism is realism. It's just straight up wrong. That's not how literary history works like. I was the kid in my english classes. When they taught us like the big sort of like literary movements like gotha schism and romanticism and stuff. I loved that. I ate that up. So i one of my. I kind of like ways of apprehending. Literature was about a learning This kind of history and kind of the taxonomy that develop and how those work. And so i'm reading here as you know little teenage michael. And he says ray bradbury is a naturalist and it's like no zola is a naturalist. What the hell are you talking about like ray.

"This week. I'm thrilled to have david yunan. Whose newest book super fake love song is out now. An conversation that we pretty much covered all talk about his newest book a his debut his writing journey and a lot about what he was like as a young person so really enjoyed talking to david. Hope you enjoy listening listening so david. What book hooked you. What book hooked me It's it was when i was in middle school. I don't know exactly how old i was. But i remember talking to my librarian and i was like i don't know to read their so many books in the school library and she just pulled out the halloween tree by ray bradbury and If you read this book but it's it has these awesome woodcut Drawings in it and it came up a long time ago. Like in the sixties. I want to say and this is way before like killington and the newspaper from the nightmare before christmas. But it's kind of there's a character in it. That is the skeleton dude with. I think he has a pumpkin for a head. I know he doesn't but he's like this very skeleton like figure and he's very creepy and he's very Theatrical like jack's kellington was and he challenges This group of boys on halloween when their trick or treating to to give up a year of their lives to save the life of their best friend Pippin who's at homesick can't trick or treat and so they travel around the world and learn about like all these Reports and customs that surrounding death and they wind up in mexico and they eat The sugar skulls and that is like. I'm going to give up a year my life to save my friend and It was just so it's like super atmospheric and super moody. This is awesome so then at of course read all very bradberry. I could find reading stuff. I shouldn't have been reading and so middle school time. Was that in age. Like were you a big reader. Then was it hard to get you to read or was it something where you pretty much constantly always had some sort of book. You're working your way through. I mean i was always reading. Yeah for sure Is reading a lot of stuff But then that book kind of it was like my first sorta grownup book. I guess and after that i started reading a of piers anthony fancy novels and i read like fifteen close and i was like wait a second. It's kind of the same story over and over again and that's florida and Then i started reading a lot of stephen king which i know i shouldn't have been reading And my dad was a weird guy to he. he He studied victorian like them. He he focused on the metaphysical poets. Okay it adds seoul university in career and then when it came to the united states he studied library science all things. wow and so he was like you need to be reading old man and the sea You need to be reading. Was it on human bondage and then lady chatterley's lover and was like that. I don't think i should be reading this. But he didn't care he's like the crazy. Daddy shows like the horror movies to his kids because he wants them to to Have a good sense of the canon. Anna is exposed to a lot of stuff that i probably shouldn't have been but i'm grateful for it and i would imagine while it was definitely helping Definitely helpful for your reading life to have a dad like that and that was kind of pushing it but was there any sort of rebellion there. That because you were being forced to read so many books were pushed upon you that reading. You rebelled against or turn against it because it was it was assigned by by dad I don't know it's hard to remember like like reading moby dick before high school. Sure looks like there's no way. I'm gonna finish so even if it did come from like a friend i don't know if i would have just cause but it did. It did feel like homework for sure At the same time like my older brother. I have one older brother. And he was a big reader to He used to read at the dinner table and it was like a problem. You know But i you know. I'm a little brother saw. I'll read to on just like him. I want to compete in everything we do. Because we're siblings. So he also turned me into the reader just sort of inadvertently and so when you got to high school especially when those are when in in those english courses you're being assigned full size novels and things like that. Didn't you find and really getting into what's canonized literature. We'll call it. Were you kind of a step ahead. That you think In those courses because dad already sorta had you on that home regiment of a reading those types of books. That's a funny question. Because i just realized really recently i mean my dad passed away like over a year ago. and so It just when you're when your parent passes away and makes you think a lot about your relationship in like your whole history. And i was like dude. My dad was like an outsized influence in in my interest in writing in books. I never appreciated him fully for that. He just kinda did it sure Yes and when. I hit high school. It was english. Classes where my absolute favorite My english teachers were my absolute favorite. My locker got broken into one time. So isis i was like no lockers and i used my english teacher's classroom as my locker That's how much we trusted. Each other's liked each other so that was sort of the year of You know camus. And ray bradbury. Shirley jackson and margaret atwood. That's like when i started really getting into those guys and and then i was like all right. This is this is really important to me. Plus i also had study hall. Not how i had studied hall but Journal i wrote in my journal pretty much every day so and so i take it

And if and I guess like if your creative process relies on you being unhappy that that's something to examine, because I don't know I when I'm creative, there's ah, It's frustrating. It's hard work, but sometimes there's a joy to it. And I just don't feel what I'm feeling. The things that I feel I don't I don't feel Necessarily creative.

More Halloween Wines 2020
"It's now, it's me Dave from a cheap wine finder.com off the scary music playing which means is another Halloween wines episode. And today we've got I mean look at it. It's Freakshow Lodi Chardonnay. 2818. Yeah, it's a freak Show Off is actually not all that scary the scary but the freak Show is more reference to a long time probably novel side shows and on the front. There's the mermaid lady the fish lady and it's kind of scary in the Ray Bradbury Something Wicked This Way Comes kind of way, which I'm done with. They're trying to get in. But you know. It looks good. And it tastes great. And the best thing about this one thing I find our for $14 is from Michael and David their their fifth generation. I think the 6th generation still working at the winery grape Growers and Lodi the family has been farming there for over a hundred and fifty years, which is kind of off but I'm talking here which is kind of common in Lodi. There's a lot of the big names there have been there for Generations, which is one of the things I like about it were so many Palm wine brands in California are fo wine Brands mean no Winery. No Vineyard safe, they buy the grapes and they rent the space make good wine, but low tides that I'm not doing an old-school. This is a really good Chardonnay. It's half barrel fermented and 1/2 stainless steel fermented, but they used all new o'farrell's off. I don't know what he said, but I'm afraid now and 80% new French barrels and 20% new American Oak barrels that's expensive. This is a line. I found off $14 and that's an upscale a little detail that really makes this wine because it's got really premium. It's Gotta Stay prudent Michael and David they have different lipsticks sense cerrad a couple of other brands there. They do a good job along with Freak Show also has as in a Cabernet seven young at a red blend which are like those are three of the best things you can get out of load at. And you know, it's a really great place for value-priced. Why isn't this Chardonnay? Leave me alone. You're trying to scare me, but it won't work. It's a really great place though the San Pablo Bay, which is the northern part of San Francisco Bay goes far enough Inland, even though it's The Vineyards are like from 7,200 miles away from the ocean. The bay is up there and there's all these river valleys that go flowing through there. It's lower areas cold air gets funneled in there and they can have wine even though nothing around them is the old able to grow grapes. Napa Valley is north of them and West and they're in the mountains and that changes everything to load. I'm not have the mountains or they're they have valleys. This is a really tasty chardonnays and the oak program with all that new Oak and and the fermentation and Oak really comes through cuz there's some really delicious page here. And it's it's nothing is over-the-top. Everything has kind of bounced out and it's like there's some salty and loose things. There's there's some buttery phone numbers. There's some creamy flavors are some ripe fruit flavors. There's just a lot of flavor here. So if it's not the scariest Halloween one, I could come up with no skulls or you know, anything like that. It does taste really good. Can you hear that too, or is it just me? So anyway? I keep on taking ships cuz it's that good. It's a delicious why it's got its because of all that Oak and the way they made it they you know, even though it's a 2018. It's it's it's still a kind of a young one that's got a good and engages your pal in a really nice way. So that's it for me. I found a freakshow chardonnay from I have the zombies invading my headphones and They're good. So I'm the next one. Keep it cheap, but there's more Halloween's lines come in and adios, and bye-bye.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noelle King. And I'm Steve Inskeep. This month marks the 1/100 anniversary of the birth of science fiction writer Ray Bradbury O. I remember reading the illustrated man when I was a kid in school. NPR's Petra mayor reports on his legacy. Ray Bradbury is sometimes called the poet of science fiction. His words demand to be read aloud. He opened the bedroom door. It was like coming into the cold marble room of a mausoleum. After the moon has set That's author and comics creator Marjorie Lou taking part in a massive online read a thon of Bradbury's classic Fahrenheit 4 51 held to mark his 100th birthday. This is the moment where Montag the hero finds his wife overdosed on sleeping pills to moon stones looked up at him in the light of small handheld fire tube Hail morning stones buried in a creek of Clearwater or which the life of the world ran not touching them Fahrenheit. 4 51 famously named for the temperature, which paper burns is a portrait of a dystopian future where everyone watches giant screens. Books are outlawed, and fireman like Montag must burn the houses that contain the forbidden volumes. Lou says the book's power comes from just how non science fictional it is. Science fiction was not in his hands like this distant spectacle. Science fiction was us. It was you and me. It was our family's wrestling with really difficult situations. On DH questions around one's internal beliefs Fahrenheit, 4 51 was published in 1953 at the height of the McCarthy era. Fast forward to today, Lou says, and humans have not evolved at all. We're still the same still exactly the same. The book deals with censorship, oppression and the influence of technology sound familiar. Our author, Mary Robinette Cole. What resonates is the way that Bradbury grounds this fiction in his own life. His childhood home of Waukegan, Illinois, became the green town of his stories, and it's not that he's writing a universal experience. He's writing his own very specific experience, but I think sometimes The more specific you are, The more universal themes can come out of something. Bradbury's visions of Mars laid out in his Martian chronicles were somewhat less realistic. Years before humanity had any idea of what the Red Planet really looked like. He imagined a civilization there with crystal houses sprouting golden fruits. But though it seemed like space fantasy back then, Bradbury's work has inspired the Mars Explorers of Today, The Curiosity Rover's landing site was named for him, and there is now an actual copy of the Martian Chronicles on Mars. Of course, Bradbury influenced countless writers, including Mary Robinette Coal for her novella, The Lady Astronaut of Mars. I named every character in there from a character in the Martian chronicles. And I know a lot of other writers who do that, who will kind of pepper little touches in, However, she adds, I love Ray Bradbury. But one of the reasons that I wrote my books is because I wanted stuff that's 100% more. People of color and women. Bradbury was progressive for his time, though, in later years he grew more cantankerous, comparing the censorship of Fahrenheit 4 51 to modern political correctness. And while Mary Robinet Cole says that if you're going to read one Bradbury novel, it should be Fahrenheit. 4 51 Marjorie Lou says she draws a more hopeful lesson from something wicked This way comes about an evil carnival that torments of town. The thing that really moved me about that book was the evil is mastered and destroyed. With happiness and laughter. And that fear has no place next. The love and joy that.

He saw the faces gaping speaking soundless words laughing and pointing at the prisoner of time traveling forever know we're off But after a while the town people vanished and it was only tourists who came to read the sign that said this is the prisoner of time John Lavelle who killed Thirty of the world's finest scientists the school children on the electrical moving sidewalks stopped to stare in childish off the prisoner of time often. He thought of that title God but it was ironic that he should invent a time machine and have it converted into a clock and that he in its pendulum should meet out the years traveling with time. He couldn't remember how long it had been the days and nights ran together in his memory. His unshaven cheeks had developed a short beard and then ceased growing. How long the time?.

We are going to take a look at the very first professional story from one of Science Fiction and Fantasy is most celebrated Minds most people living in the United States were like introduce to Ray Bradbury through his celebrated short novel Fahrenheit 451 that gave readers their first view into a dystopian future where the population was placated and fed a steady stream of propagandized mass media while the free sharing of ideas had been suppressed and books had been outlawed under the pretense that anything requiring nuanced thought is dangerous or offensive first published in nineteen fifty-three Fahrenheit those science fiction is considered essential reading on the dangers of government censorship as well as mass Conformity and it's the seventh most wage. Doubt book of all time in the New York Public Library a striking irony. However is how often Fahrenheit 451 itself has been publicly banned or censored but long before his Fame novel was Fanning the Flames of controversy Bradbury was just another young writer living in Los Angeles struggling to make a name for himself after discovering a flyer at a local bookstore and Barry joined the Los Angeles Science Fiction society, which included other burgeoning science fiction writers. That would also later go on to fame including Robert Heinlein Henry kuttner and Lee Brackett home in nineteen forty-one re received his first professional opportunity and sold the story pendulum co-authored with Henry Haas for a fee of $15 the page him had originally been written for Bradbury self published fanzine future Fantasia, but made its debut nationally in the November 1941 issue of super science stories over him.

The pendulum is short and Highway rhythmic and its pros. So in order to make sure we do the story Justice. We're going to break from our normal format.

I mean we're always a writer and what was the process like getting this book maiden put out into the world I never really thought I would ever become a writer I've always absolutely loved reading when I was little I would read all the time. It was my favorite thing like if I could get some Mike Birthday money are doing that always like go towards books like without a doubt. But I never considered. Writing as something that I could do personally. Won I think is is when I was young. There weren't many authors that were. Not White. And Seeing that I was like, okay that's that's not me like I. Love these books. Obviously, I love these authors but I don't think that's that that is me can I can do? So I kind of actually followed in the fall footsteps in my father like what did Biz Adnan or major fight that All all along I did like I love books nevertheless like I loved. Just, the world of books in how it could take away bean escape. I, looking back I didn't do realize that. I did right when I was anchor I never thought much of it but I did right. just refine. Journal or diary land in Middle School. My teacher had speed. The Martian chronicles by Ray, Bradbury. I really liked the book It's budget short stories sort of like said on Mars in then. So her prompt was your own little Martian chronicles on chapter. And having super excited as. Oh. My Gosh is this homework like this can't be homework? This is actually fun. Did that and I didn't think much of it entered it. I was like a penis assignment. That another instance to that like I think this in fifth grade where we did the committee evil medieval course. I also had to write for that class to end up writing like. Twenty K. word count on. The Story? And super excited about that. But then I never thought about it like elevated could be career. Because all I saw Romney was like business medical health care. Fields so might say loss. Eastern. American conduct. Exactly. which you know I still have my day job. Of course in my day job was actually working out really well right now but I I graduated college. I started started day job and. I've been working before you know like I am. Worked Rosen Yogurt shop in high school in like I did internships and stuff like that I worked in the job through college. But my first day job I sat down as her working has. GotTa be more to life than this. Has To. Be. So. Like go back and forth nine to five day job GonNa Commute. Drive home. There's something missing. That job was the right job for me for one company was on the right bit but. I realized I didn't do something more like a Passion Hobby And so I was like, well, obviously like I love books. So maybe I can write like this for fun.

"ray bradbury" Discussed on The Twilight Zone Podcast
"Not in some heavily profound speech that the grandmother gives and to be honest while I have some issues wiz. I sing the body. Electric the twilight zone invasion. I still Kinda Kinda got the gist of the parts of the story. I don't think it was a major emission. So is the television movie better than the twilight zone episodes. I think I prefer the showroom seen in the twilight zone episode because it has a beautiful dark room and you could hypothesize that the show Joe Room itself was a product of the twilight zone but other than that I think that yes. The television movie tells the story better and the reason season I was keeping track of the timing in the episode earlier on. Was that what the television movie has that. The twilight zone lacks is time. Now the fabled listed story style of the best twilight zone episodes where things are pared down to their essence and told to us in such a way as to be deceptively. Simple is one of the great things about the show and it is one of Rod sailing special talents and by deceptively simple. I mean road. Sailing makes it look easy. Sometimes but it's not getting across to these huge aspects of the human condition in such a graceful way where you almost absorbed a message without realizing there is difficult to do you or maybe some things just can't be boiled down to a deceptively simple. They ballistic message. or at least maybe Ray Bradbury. He couldn't boil it down to a deceptively simple fable the electric grandmother. TV Movie Way because when the grandmother tans up the time that she talks about having for the children is also time that we all have with them as of this story in whatever form it takes is is meant to talk on the heartstrings and the twilight zone vision is nice but I think it struggles to do that for me because the time she spends with the children is about ten minutes of screen time. And it's just not enough on an even needs a rare mid episode Rod serling narration and the last one he did made episode. I believe to try and get that attachment to hair across as of this moment. The Wonderful Electric Grandmother moved into the lives of children find she became integral put and she became the essence. As of this moment.

"Way uh so perhaps on the surface you can see that? Where is everybody and the silent? Towns are both based on quiet quiet deserted towns but to be honest that's pretty much where the similarity ends clearly in the twilight zone one. The setting is a complete mystery. The main character does know who he is. He doesn't know where he is. And we don't know those things I are there and when the truth is revealed contains out that he was never really there at all now in the silent towns. It's Tom Dan. That's been evacuated and a minor from the hills was clearly not part of that evacuation while both stories can San themselves else with solitude and loneliness to a degree as it goes on Ray. Bradbury's tale becomes a lot more humorous because the main character adores. Find a woman in a far of town and they speak by phone initially but then when they find each other he finds them to be completely -pletely incompatible while road sailings tail is concerning itself with people's need for companionship. And how so. That's how we're really made ray Bradbury's is actually a riff on the saying. I wouldn't marry you if you're the last man on is put put the genders of flipped because it's a case of the male protagonist meeting this woman and then pretty much saying that he wouldn't marry her even though. Oh she's the last woman on Mars and it does become a story about saying that sometimes being alone doesn't necessarily mean that you are lonely now. The silent towns was actually adopted for Ray Bradbury Theater so as an exercise why not go and check out when it is every body and then check out the silent towns on Ray Bradbury Theater and see how similar they really are and if we are comparing hearing stories I would say that a more similarities with this story. The story of this fantastical woman this nanny. This grandmother ten and go up and having a profound effect on the life of this family especially the children with another very similar tale of that kind. Mary poppins now disappoint Mary. poppins the Disney movie hadn't been made but the Mary poppins books had been made for several years change Mary poppins.

"Also, maybe by virtue of still being freaking naked and just draped under some crumpled sheets again that you know, makes her lighter and lets her rise toward alertness and awakeness and randomly grabbing road. Maybe she's just cold in reaching for a blanket. Oh that could be it or you know, rogues like probably pretty hot and sweaty in that full body costume that. She wears all the time. So maybe Bella Donna's just trying to like get it on some of that body heat. Yes. He's just going the nearest source of heat liquor reptile. Okay. There we go. Bella Donna is a naked partially coma. Toast reptile. So this isn't technically related to any of this. But I realized last night that while the rhymes don't work out. You can sing bread and lizards to the tune of bread and roses. I I can confidently state that I've never thought of that before. Yeah. Well, now, you know. Well, that brings us to gambit number four fief of time. You're in that novel. The thief of always that was kind of Clarke Clive Barker doing early Ray Bradbury. Oh, yeah. That had the holiday house, right? I think they adapted that into a comic awhile back never read it. I think so. Yes, then likewise. Well, anyway in Gabon number four rather than in Clive Barker's. The fief of always gambit is crouching dramatically atop the spires of the church of lost thieves. That's what is called the church of lost thieves. This is like some the crow level over rottenness. And I am fucking on board. Okay, miles. Having recently seen the crow. I can tell you for a fact that nothing is over rod as the crow actually that's not sure the crows actually slitting less overwrought than I remember to having been, but it's still pretty overwrought. Yeah. Does it hold up? It does actually holds up really astonishingly. Well, mostly Brandon Lee's performance in it is just phenomenal. And I remembered watching it as a teenager, and knowing that he died making it and having my perception of how brilliant in romantic, it was totally totally shaded by that. But as a cynical adult, I was actually still really really impressed in. It's it's yeah. And again, it's interesting watching it as an adult with more knowledge of. How story works in? How movies were too because you can see the places that are shot around or that are are are working around the stuff that they couldn't shoot because of his death. But yet, it's actually a remarkably solid movie all things considered it home in will. I should give that a rewatch at some point. I don't think I've seen that since the nineteen ninety s yet. It's actually streaming on Netflix, which is how we ended up some blame across it and rewatching it. Nice. Well, anyway, not on Netflix. But in the church of loss thieves Julian is waiting inside with the one vial of the elixir of life that he'll ready has he's waiting for the thief Pierre to come in having presumably stolen the thieves own vibe. But gambit apparently already intercepted Pierre having stolen the vile that Pierre was taking from the fiv skilled gambit also managed to use his sexy thief skills to grab the vial that Candra had from between Canada's breasts now gambit has two vials and quickly plucks the third from Julian's hands..

"Email from someone that said sounds a little like Ray Bradbury's, the veldt do you? Remember that story. I I love love love Ray Bradbury, and the Veld happens to be my favorite really do. Remember the for those who've never read Ray Bradbury. And if you have it, you really should the man is a genius. But the veldt is about a family growing up in the future where they have a smart house. It's kind of creepy now because I thought about in a long time, but they're growing up in a smart house that does everything for them. They it cleans itself cooks dinner, and it has a room called the nursery for the kids, and it's a sensually holiday, and the kids are fascinated with the scene of this African savannah with all these lions in it. And the moms starts to get concerned that the kids aren't living in the real world. And that this house has replaced the family structure and all these different things. And she says to her husband was called psychologists or psychiatrists psychiatrist comes in and says you guys got to get. Out of this house for the health of your family. So they say great, we're going the kids say can we have one more day in the nursery, and the parents say, okay. So the kids go back into the nursery their parents come into get in. They locked their parents in the neighbor in the nursery and they get eaten by lions. And it's a fantastic story. It's really I totally spoiled the ending and didn't tell anybody I was going to spoil the ending. But it goes to the point that exactly the point we're making that the holiday becomes intoxicating and that kind of power you don't wanna leave it behind. I mean, we're seeing now with kids who are physically coming unglued if they don't have their tablet or their phones in their hands. This is a real thing. And one of the things that we were just saying off the air in the show off the air about the show on the air. Is that people Dave what did you say Dave about how amazing this could be you could go and learn from Einstein you could go and learn you could turn like the internet. It depends on what you're looking for. You can find pretty much anything. For Naga fee to the highest literary knowledge you can find. Today that the internet is a place where I can go right now and practically how to do brain surgery. If that's what I wanted to know. And yet the number one traffic sites on the internet or pornography and any. Any any technique? New technology always VHS technology started with pornography. They all start there. It's always at the cutting edge technology for some reason. Well, you could also have the higher things. Yeah. Let's say you were really into science, and well, I wanna go to a class taught by Albert Einstein actually in the flesh. And I could ask him questions anything I want you could do that. But he's not in the flesh to Mark. Our our caller are mine are just waiting twenty years, and it'll be don't wanna make out with Albert Einstein. So you don't really care if he's actually you can. You never know. Great guy. Not that. There's anything wrong with that. I throw that out there as well. No. But but I see here's the thing. I've I've long maintained. And I think this is a very smart point, by the way, by me technology moves faster than we can. And it takes longer for us to figure out the ethics around that technology than it does the technology to advance, and we see it. Now, we're seeing on social media think about what a short period of time, we have had social media, and yet we have managed to make it a sewer a gutter of hatred, and vitriol and nonsense. So we've proven the human nature does not necessarily rise to the top. But it's it drops right down to our most base instincts. And that's where I get concerned about the holiday 'cause you know, you could actually have people going to war with other countries in the holiday where they end up being a dictator of the whole world. How do you go from that to being a guy who works in an office cubicle? How do you go from leader of the world to? Yeah. Could I get your cover at your TPS reports? I mean, it just it's there's a huge disconnect there, and I I don't see it ending. Well, unlike our.
"ray bradbury" Discussed on Endless Thread
"Talking with us. It's been a pleasure. Thank you for bringing. This fascinating story here. Then our Hugh planning a murder what's going on over there. Look guys. It's just important information to have. Okay. And I guess that's a nice way to transition to the very last bit of all of this. This whole story is strange as it is might be too. Good to be true. It might be fake. Yeah. And there are a couple reasons for this for one are bradberry. Nineteen twenty won't talk to us. And there are a few explanations for that. I mean, they said in one of their updates that they actually got a settlement from their landlord who didn't turn out to be an apartment creeper. But may have been the reason the apartment didn't have the proper detectors, and that settlement might have a clause in it that prevents bradberry. Nineteen twenty from talking to people like us because that landlord might still be a landlord. But then there are the conspiracy theories to one that the username itself is kind of a sly reference to carbon monoxide as a result of LA. Lots of forms of combustion combustion being a pretty key part of Ray Bradbury's book Fahrenheit, four fifty one. Like, maybe this is a kind of very well disguised PSA for making sure you have a carbon monoxide detector in your house. We asked Deborah Plum about this connection. I'm not all creeped off by the Ray Bradbury part of it. I mean, Ray Bradbury wrote. Some really interesting troubling stories. I wasn't thinking just of flare height four five one. But I was thinking of something wicked this way comes and that would be a very interesting title for a story like this. Right. But Ray Bradbury's science was absolutely grounded paper really does burn it for hundred and fifty one degrees Fahrenheit. So I think if you could say nothing else you'd say he'd loves the story. So Deborah doesn't smell a conspiracy. But what about Ken Roach? The guy who seemed very available to talk to us. But who also seemed to suggest details that we had really found in some of our red sifting. Yeah. Also, he says he's a Ray Bradbury fan. He's got some Bradbury's books in his boat up in the cabin where he almost died of carbon monoxide poisoning. It all seems almost too perfect. But we asked can straight up. How do we know? That you and our bradberry. Nineteen twenty aren't actually the same person it you'll good point. It never really thought about that as Fahrenheit four five one involving combustion. I understand they're doing a movie about it. Another new movie, I think Michael Jordan is in it. So I'm excited about that. Are you part of the marketing team for the movie that's coming out? Nope. But I saw it on our slash movies. But how how can you tell this wasn't some great conspiracy that I was posting both sides of it. I suppose you can't. I like to think that if I was there would be more drama of. That, you know, the there would be a first second third act of there will be a hero's journey of. Instead. There's just being this this person out there with a poorly ventilated bedroom. There's a bunch of top comments that are that are funny. I just kinda wanna get your reaction to them. One of them. Is sounds like you caq big time. He may have just saved your life. Glad you figured it out. And then the reaction to that is that's because he had adequate ventilation and then reaction to that was enough to air it all out, but a he just needed to vent some, and then the reaction to that is and this is where the red part of read it comes in. It does doesn't it? The continuous series of puns makes me wonder if the whole thing's populated by Canadians. I think we should go. Visit Ken and his wife in their dog on their boat. Like, we could read some Ray Bradbury stories out loud by candlelight. Okay. Just gotta make sure you turns off the stove. Wait, you guys don't wanna wake up confused and naked and covered. In poop. You're on your own with that. I'm all most set. All right. Well, friendly reminder, folks, install those carbon monoxide detectors this episode of endless thread was paid for by the coalition of concerned Americans who are totally against carbon monoxide just
