"Wilcox and join once again. My friends colleagues. Alexi all and eugene s robinson. And we're here to discuss hip hop evolution. We've worked our way up to season two episode to this out the trunk. The bay oregon speak about this in two parts. First up too short. is the hammer a forty. So any general thoughts fellas on the on the happy. They upset alexi. What we all got choices. I i should have. No no no. I just wanted to forty percents. That's all i see gonna weird mashup of i thought was interesting. Matchup of a city right because if you were to your start with with this area starting to get to like when i was like a hip hop head and like reading all the magazines and all you know and we're in a magazine or it up the source and all that you know rap pages extracts the weird thing is i get what they were driving. It's interesting to see a city broken down in terms of different kinds of elements. I think they're going to butt the exposure in impact that each one of the individuals they showcase taj's totally different. It's a weird. The where they're from is the pretty much the only similarity in terms of popularity impact. You know so. I don't know what any thought but it literally was. i gonna. here's some great artists from brownsville. Brooklyn here's some great artists from queens. Here's some it's all over the place. We want to represent everybody as opposed to spending time. it's necessary we talk about cultural impact. That's what my take was on it. I liked it. You know the bay area In which we say disco. Oakland has always been a weird place music right. I mean you don't have you don't it doesn't it it over produces it underperforms that makes sense you got a lot of bands from the bay area but how many people really know tower power right. I mean you you. Are you know like the doobie brothers efforts. Oh are they. You know so. It's always had this weird kind of small town deal with you know i. It just filled straight on through to the hip hop as well where you did have huge. Mc hammer and then you have these more critically loud it but kind of still nisha. I mean the the glory of something like two short is that he's managed to maintain this you know while being able to buy rolls-royces this stuff platinum you extract platinum album. So that's a but in a weird in a weird thing that i'm not entirely sure i did hallucinate. I remember once being at somebody's place in grabbing going to toilet grabbing a magazine architectural architectural digest. So i'm sitting on the can and i stumble on a spread on too short's house. And the house was super tasteful. Really incredibly well designed like top line not with the cheesy filigrees on. Mtv cribs which is probably why you haven't seen it on mtv cribs. It looks like a guy. Looks like an old like a nice house in the woods. Maybe you know piedmont berkeley hills really take. And i've tried to find it since then and have not been able to find it online so we got a glimmer of that when he was talking and he was like. I'm gonna. I'm fundamentally was sort of saying like i'm like pacino. You no michael. Corleone you realize doesn't really exist to short doesn't really exist. Todd shaw is a resplendent. tastefully designed. You know redwood house up in the hills of piedmont you know too. Short is driving around on the track. And he didn't meet the guy. He did meet chad in his house. He met him right in the neighborhood. It's about todd. Shaw versus short. Because i'll never forget. I was taking a hip hop class at columbia columbia law school navy to take electives from undergrad and i switched on my way into taking a hip hop class taught by michael. Eric dyson who is a visiting professor. Because i was like you know when i worked volunteer lawyers yards. I didn't really understand rap music of so so so. I need to take this course as i plan on me entertained attorneys or really understand the nature that all great. Yes yes yes yes. What is that regime. So i got a but area so todd boyd was a guest professor and he's a guy who's like appeared like in his twitter following as low as well as instagram. Back in the day this guy used to be on like any kind of documentary about hip hop and black culture He was on and so he was visiting. He was a guest speaker in the class and he was talking about the legitimacy knows how authentic rappers authenticity authenticity authenticity. Authenticity ours like well. Too short has stated from day. One that too short is a character that he is portraying and he's had that distance from the get-go and he was like yeah with two short. He's a nobody like nobody knows too short to shorts a platinum selling artist and he was like well. No he's not on. I'm talking about artists. Level of biggie. Allies like commercially speaking. If they're not that many artists on the level of big well. That's what i was talking about to. Short doesn't count. Fm literally next class. Eric dyson who is quiet during that time. So yeah he didn't always talking about just trying to prove a point you know all about authenticity and being real and keep it real bullshit. I haven't had the ice cube. Ice cube said when he said it's a day back in the day before that sorry we said unlike he tried to show a distance between trying to be a straight up dude as opposed to pretending to be a pimp and the fact that he was keeping it real because he was a straight up instead pretending to be something. He wasn't so again. You know too short. Yeah but but also fiction and reality have a way of blurring. You know if you know you talk about adrian. Brodie was unapproachable after the pianist for like six months due lost his relationship because he couldn't shake the role. Become this depressive. Couldn't eat having nightmares so it gets hard to you. Know what do you think happens when when too short not. Todd shore rolls up into a club because todd shots in front of a fireplace at his house in the else too short rolls up you know and this is this is the lure of it because he can hide behind this character but it becomes like you know fats in the movie. Magic led to short. Sit there quietly for five minutes and not saving. I just want to todd. Shaw now might be tough to do after a certain point you know. Let's get back on. Yes we digress. You we've just but basically are laying out the bay area as an area with sort of multiple personalities one. It's an independent from new york. We don't care what's going on new york The ourselves so there's this diy aspect. It's very political home of the black panthers revolutions in the air hippies and all that plus a lot of tolerance and the pit culture like too short move their nineteen eighty when he's he's a kid and it looked like what he had seen in blaxploitation movies and he just he just. It's like the movies. You've been watching the mac come to life. And and he assumes this persona as a rapper on the first rappers in town he meets a freddie beta says partner. Tell freddie bay gets bussing us jail but it seems like emphasize things too short one is the Persona and how. It comes out of the pimp culture which i've.

"That's it the credits roll. Yeah and this was really really well done. Yes yeah I did at the very beginning I did at the beginning and it took me a little while to figure out why I was feeling this way I was like Kinda slow in places like I liked it overall. But it's still kinda slow places because the last like six movies that we wash while we're watching them and taking notes of had to be furiously typing the whole time the true stuff going on and I didn't have to be furiously typing the whole time on this because it wasn't paste that way you know what I mean we'll know We didn't have a but I feel like the the pacing was appropriate. It was just me reacting to having to furiously take notes. Well here's thing so You know looking for the sound quotes. Rog. GotTa jump ahead young bed do all this stuff But I realized doing that night. I told you Thirty six minutes into the film. We are already at Redwood House. Yeah the murder house. Everybody's in there in the last two ladies. Are there thirty six minutes? Yeah Right. That's not a long time. You know and so I understand what you're saying but yeah because it wasn't a lot of elaborate setup we it. This is the kind of thing that that I did. You know one of the points that we may talk about was the the art of simple story once again right here. It is Let you finish. Your thoughts. Here won't won't come back to that. Well I it was the I mean my nose just kind of like overall I think if you you WanNa get Gore fast this is gonna hit those buttons. There was a lot of Gore. A lot of blood is very satisfying And if the Aleph practical effects and there are a lot of really good practical effects than here That you know if I do them I would be super proud of them. Think they're really good. Oh and that mask is easily the best killer mask. I've seen like ever absolutely ever ever well speaking of that mask Let's talk about that. I let before we get in trouble So as I had mentioned I've been chatting back and forth with David David Keith and When when we were talking about the stuff and the movie in this We had talked about how you know. That mask was a fucking attention getter. Yeah and it was super creepy and you know what people should buy it. So I wrote or responded back to him in one of our exchanges said. Oh yeah by the way my wife and I were talking tell you what if you could merchandise that fucking mask man? All my God well come to find out. They didn't make the mask right He purchased it. How this got passed us this long. I have no idea so. He sent me the information. this is You can buy this mask and a bunch of other. Sauna this exact. That's exact one for this. Maybe was modified version. You can buy the base model of this round. The Guy who makes these makes X. number of masks. But for extra money he will customize them or you which is probably four filmmakers on his website. He has a couple of films listed where his masks have been featured one of which Redwood Bhaskar So it's a grim stitch factory. Yes is the gentleman who makes these masks by hand. Yeah.

"Is very interesting because we are such an old county was founded in shortly after the gold rush and so two their Accounting's important because we're such an old county by Sawyer's the oldest town between Stockton and Los Angeles. We're very fortunate. We have a big community of people who are interested in history. And we all work together to try to preserve it. We are in the any mental history room at the ranch Clara county library as you can see we have our vault that is actually holds are more sensitive information. So we're talking rare books we have obsolete media such as oral history is an audio tapes. We have some old newspapers. And then we do have personal papers from local citizens that helped preserve our history here. So our first item that we're going to be looking at is newspaper called the Commonwealth. This is the newspaper of a utopian society that lived near the sequoia national park in the eighteen eighty s and early eighteen ninety s now they're kunia colony as they were called. They were a socialist utopia and their economy was based on logging. They were followers of the socialist ideals. And their impact locally is that they did explore the area around the general Sherman tree. In fact, that one point they named the general Sherman tree the Karl Marx tree. And so they existed for about six years. And then was national park was traded. That was the beginning of the end of the colonies since they're logging rights for invalidated. And so luckily, we do have a reminder of the colony through their newspaper and their impact is still seen today because they did a lot of sparring of the national park. Sorry, next item. Here is the a photo of the general noble being cut down. This is a giant sequoia that was cut down in eighteen ninety two to be sent back to the eighteen ninety three Chicago world's fair before locking the redwoods became illegal. They were desired because the the wood was fire resistant a lot of the towns in the late eighteen hundreds. We're susceptible to fire. And so have you had a Redwood house or a building you had a better chance of the building surviving? You can't log redwoods anymore because they're so unique and they are protected, and unfortunately, what they didn't realize when they cut the tree down is that due to the size and the weight that up to sixty percent of the tree would shatter. Oh, become unusable. So really, even though there was a desire, would it really wasn't cost effective, but they still try it for a few years before it became a legal. The next item is a painting and a photo of the end of the trail statue. Now. This depicts a native American who was on his horse and his slumped over because he's reached the end of his life. He's reached the end of his trail. Now, this statue the original was created for a one thousand nine hundred fifty. Eighteen exposition in San Francisco, and it was a popular statute. They should they sold reproductions at the at the exposition, and it became well known as so after the exposition that statue was disposed of about. Luckily is recovered and it was sent to Mooney's grove here by. What's interesting about the painting is that this was actually found in upstate New York in the nineteen seventies. So right on the back and there some writing on there. So this is purchased by someone who was on vacation in New York and it saw and their recognize the statue right away. And of course, it tells the history of where it was found it was found on the day nine hundred seventy three and at the bottom. How did it get from California to upstate New York and who painted it? So people are aware of the statue. And so it's kind of interesting that the painting, we don't know how to new New York, but it did make its way back to buy. William. So the next photo is a photo of a train robber. And he was in a Taurus train robber here invite Celje. And so the gentleman who was playing in the hay is Johnson tag. And he was the partner of Chris Evans and the gentleman standing behind him is a posse that was sent to get him Sante. He had an issue with the railroad because she got injured working for them. And then he was laid off while he's recuperating, he conspired with his friend Chris Evans to basically get back at them. So they would do these train robberies up and down the valley. And finally, there would they ever caught at a place called stone corral. And so a posse went up to the foothills, and they tracked them down. And then the then there was a shootout at stone corral. So now that's called the battles stone corral and sawn tag was injured. Chris Evans, he escaped but. He lost an eye, and he lost his left arm. And so this is kind of a colorful kind of outlaw history of Clara county. So our next photo is a reproduction, but it's valuable because this is a gentleman named Edmund Weisinger and Edmund Weisinger was born as a slave back east, and he came to California as a slave and he worked in the gold rush. And as he worked in the gold, rush he actually bought his own freedom. And then he moved to vice Celje now where he raised his kids now at eight hundred eighty eight he sent his son to the local school here. And the school said send your son to school for all students who are not. And so he sued the school district in a case, call Weisinger versus versus Cruikshanks wanted to the state supreme court and he won. So effectively it ended segregation that was. Recognized and unrecognized in the state of California at that time and set a legal precedent saying that you cannot exclude students based on the color of their skin the next photo shows, George berries combined steam, traction harvester is essentially a steam powered combine and it's self propelled. And I chose this. Because Tillery county is the second largest Acura cultural producing county in the state, and our climate here is very universal where we can have cows. We can have dairy. We can grow stone fruit being grow nuts. So this combine is shows the agricultural scene, but it also shows the engineer witty and incense that we were trying to find ways of producing agricultural, and we're trying to do a better and more efficiently. Our next item is a catalog, and it's interesting because. Westbound all in leather. This is from a company that produce saddles here by Celje called the vice sell your stock saddle company. Now, this was started in eighteen seventy by gentleman named DA Walker. And he produced saddles that were exquisite a lot of hand crafted leather, and so this became very popular. And it just grew. And there was saying that if you're saddle didn't save by Celje, you weren't too real cowboy and the company's still around to this day and the saddles themselves are collectible items, if you go on EBay or go on auction sites, and you look for Celje saddles, they're very well sought after and what's significant about this catalogue is that when the vice Celje stock saddle company moved to San Francisco all their records were destroyed in the nineteen o six earthquake which makes this item a well sought after a piece of history. Our next item is an eight hundred ninety two map of Tillery county as it appeared at that time. Now, this is an official map that was produced forces of Fresno county, and it was made by a gentleman named Thomas h Thompson. And this shows the entire county including part of what's now known as king's county. And so on the right hand side. You have these national park you have the Sierra Sierra Nevada mountains and also the great western divide. And then as you move west you see the the central valley and places such as by soya. But then as you go west at the very edge of the map. There's a big body of water called Tillery lake now, this is significant because Larry lake is no longer there at one time. It was the largest freshwater lake west of the Rockies, and now it's gone because due to a lot of our management of water. It's no longer. Around Andy metro who the room is named after she did refer to it as the ghost too lake because depending on how much water came down from the Sierra Nevada's the size would fluctuate. So it could be really large. It could be really small and the map is just indicative of how the landscape has changed. So this item is part of our George Stewart collection. And so George Stewart was a newspaper editor you own the vice Celje weekly delta now known as the viceroy at times delta, he was influential because he used his editorial powers and his opinion pieces to advocate for protecting the giant redwoods near by. And so he really was trying to convince public opinion on saving these giant trees and part of his efforts resulted in the sequoia national park being established in eighteen ninety. And so this is correspondence between Mr. Stewart and John Muir, and he was Francis John Muir, and he was familiar with him. And so their correspondence is basically asking questions about the creation of the national park information on the Sierras and John Muir. Replied back, and he was talking about how he would love to drop by and say, hi, George Stewart was influential in the national park, but also our local politics and local history, and we have all his papers and his correspondence that highlight that and also document that. It's important to preserve these and collect them and try to hold onto them as long as we can because they're evidence of the stories that we've heard them past or is solves a mystery that we've heard rumors about and we want to verify if that's true or not as so desired items which try to hold onto them as long as we can. And they're not just old dusty books hiding in the corner that book may hold an answer that book may hold, you know, a revelation to someone that may not know about it. Jonathan what Meyer is in charge of the any are Mitchell history collection. We are outside of the three rivers museum here in to Larry County, California three small town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains just outside of sequoia national park. It's here that we spoke with local author Lewis Jackson to learn more about the history of this mountain range as well as learn a little bit about the ancient peoples. They called this area their home. The Sierra Nevada.
