Interview With Author David Yoon
"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

"I can still access the problems on my side of the peanut vendor without Actively being in pain. 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. But this is a problem for a lot of people seeing yourself as synonymous with your Depression, your sadness, your anxiety or whatever. And all I can say is That you'll find another way through. You can always write about. You can still access if you want to write about your depression, or you want to write about your anxiety, But you are right about character. Who has that I I can almost promise you you will be able to Right about that character having Gotten better. In yourself. You'll still be able to remember what that was like without having to like, Immerse yourself in. You know, I want to play a song now. So this is something you uploaded to YouTube about a decade ago. It's heading towards six billion views. Now we have to censor this hilariously for public radio. But this is f me, Ray Bradbury, take a listen to this e said.

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.

"So i. got. Synchronicity put those in there. Of course dreams I got sometimes, I'll read out of my idea book. But I on constantly getting. I realized DICTA TO IDEAS. I'm I'm addicted ideas and brainstorming and imagining the possibility of unpacking the imagination and. I'm just. I I feel. When I'm not. Either in the midst of Something or daydreaming about something or talking with someone about. Imagination or This sort of enlightening aspects of I find myself kind of. Those are the Times I get bored of those are the Times that I. Just like I tune out and I dug. I, think. What I viewed my ideas ask like little little babies and I feel. It's my duty to to give them life and so I'm writing them down a lot. I kept this whole. Idea book sold of things here that. Would I just realize that these ideas that I have for screenplays? Screenplay but. These ideas for screenplays I have the whole beginning middle and end in my brain. All these things down and I thought today. That's how long how fun with that the F.

"ray bradbury" Discussed on Reset with Jenn White
"I'm Justin Kauffman in this is reset. The world is celebrating the Centennial of author, Ray Bradbury's birth. The Joaquin born bradberry is acknowledged as one of the world's all time. Great Scifi writers the seminal works include Fahrenheit four, fifty, one illustrated man Bradberry died and twenty twelve but the literary communities enjoying numerous celebrations for his one hundredth on briberies actual birthday on August twenty second. The Library of Congress will feature read alongs by actors and authors like William. Shatner Rachel. Bloom and Neil gaiman and Bradbury's official biographer Sam. Weller is doing his part to celebrate the life of a man who's still looms larger than life. You know I think with each passing year that this man has left our planet and gone out wherever we go when we depart he becomes more important to the Pantheon not just literature but to creativity and imagination this was in my estimation I think in a biased. As he said his authorized biographer I. Think he is one of the most important creators of the twentieth century. I mean not only did he do books like parenthood 451, which is a mainstay in in school curricula around the world. Published in nearly forty languages around the world but he worked in television. You know he wrote episodes of the twilight zone. He designed attractions at Epcot. Center. He designed shopping malls. He was nominated for an academy award. There's a crater on the moon named for the man and I just think his footprint on imaginative storytelling is just massive and I think that's why people are coming together in recognizing this centennial is really important. It makes me sad because I work really closely with him for so long and he always maintained I wanna live to a hundred I want to live to one hundred zero didn't quite get there. Ninety, one, ninety, two years old I think is when he died but when you've worked so close with someone like Ray Bradbury and you spent time with him, what do you think people don't know about bradberry but should know about. You. Know I think there was a wad vive about the man there was an effervescence. If you will his life, I mean, he celebrated every single day when I was with, him couldn't help but feel gratitude for just being alive and I think that that crackles through in many of his books. But I think people who read a work like the Martian chronicles or a dystopia and work like Fahrenheit four, fifty, one or frightening book like the illustrated man people think that he must have been a dark and brooding visionary and there was that aspect to him. But that really was not his personality he was hilarious he was gregarious are. Back to when I was twenty one. The reason I'm here tonight is because I quit acting. Because I couldn't remember the God line. Kit, a tremendous zest for life and that's you know I think why he continues to live on. I want to get into the stories..

So it's a it's exciting just to kneel to finally have the book out in the world and having everyone. Read it. Done very excited. You had. This is your debut, right? Yes, it's my first and only look in the world as of yet. Yeah. We'd love to know more about your background. 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.

that i find fascinating about him he is he is a very american coined off he described he likes to describe himself as a magician but he also in-interviews described himself as a salesman in the terms
