"There was other news, as I always say, but frankly, you might find it familiar, so you might not think. This is a new news. Over the weekend, yuga labs confirmed that bored ape yacht club's Discord server was hacked with 200 eth worth of NFTs stolen, the third time a bad actor has impersonated a yugo lab's run account on Discord and has thus stolen funds in. I don't know what day is it, quote unquote desk. The hack took place after the project's community manager Boris Wagner had his Discord account compromise which the attacker then used to post phishing links in both the official board apes, yacht club, and it's related metaverse project called other sides Discord channels. News of the hack was first reported by Twitter user NFT herder, who also estimates that a 145 eth or around $260,000 was still along with the NFTs, tracing the stolen funds back to four separate wallets. Yoga labs later confirmed the exploit occurred in a tweet of its own, saying it is still actively investigating the incident. It did so 11 hours after NFT herders tweet. Wagner is also the manager of his brother, the Grammy winning multi instrumentalist Richard Wagner who cofounded in NFT fantasy football club called spoiled banana society with Boris. The attacker also posted a fishing link in the SPS Discord channel, though the message was subsequently deleted Richard said, hey, at everyone, we were hacked in hour ago. Hopefully no one clicked on any links. Richard Wagner said in a Discord message at 9 UTC. We've got back control of the Discord and Boris's account, thank God he didn't delete the whole server. It is unclear if anyone in the SBS channel was affected, though Richard has requested information from the Discord members related to the attack. We'll be getting all the tabs back up in the following days and let us know if there's anything else he messed with, he said. The Wagner is also run a record label called metaverse records in the same SBS Discord message, Richard, independently confirmed that the board apes yacht club and other side discords were also hacked..

"Even marks himself was hoping to redeem the human frailties that had made a fair society impossible. And he also hoped, of course, that technology would be the vehicle to it. Now, the fetish for technology and I say fetish advisedly because it is Marx who went to the great exhibition of 1851, which was the first really global exhibition where you could see the whole world in one big shopping mall in effect. And Marx did come up with his theory of the commodity fetish, the idea that we worship the possessions that we can buy as if they have powers to transform us. The fetish for technology, again, is a uniquely western response to this changes in communication and economy and power in the world. So there are very particular things that occur that only happen in the west. If you look at Hindu nationalism or Zionism, these are cases where a religious ethos married itself very tidally and dynamically to a political modern political system. That hasn't happened in the west, has it. People in the west have usually defined politics as being against organized religion rather than the servant of it. And they've usually tied, therefore, their technology to this project of transforming everything as fast as possible. These are very specifically western ideas. And in the 19th century, they used to call them promethean that they would say, you know, rather than this being modeled on anything from the Bible, this was actually the stealing of furze sacred fire in Greek mythology. In other words, they look literally to before Christianity for an image of the kind of person who we would understand now as being one of the lords of Silicon Valley, for instance, or one of the railway tycoons of the 19th century. So there are very specific changes in the west that produce this kind of western person that we now see as perfectly ordinary as if it's always been like that. But it really hasn't. Speaking of ancient symbolism and perhaps being obsessed with ancient symbolism, I'd like to bring up Richard Wagner. You mentioned him and Friedrich Nietzsche and others that explore religion and nationalism. So you do rightly note that there's a conflict between politics and religion in the west that plays out much differently in other parts of the world. But religion has a role in the development of nationalism. So at this time period in your book, there's also this very important question of what does it mean to be a nation if you're French or Serbian or whatever? Is this an ethnic identity? Is this purely linguistic? Is this a set of ideals? Is this religion? Sometimes all of the above, sometimes one of those, sometimes none of those. So can you talk about how religion and nationalism entwined for someone like Wagner and Nietzsche or others? Well, this is a crucial question, isn't it?.

"Isn't just a bunch of names and dates and facts. It's the collection of all the stories throughout human history that explain how and why we got here. Welcome to the history unplug podcast where we look at the forgotten, neglected, strange and even counterfactual stories that made our world what it is. I'm your host, Scott rank. We often think of the late 19th century in western societies with its railroads, telegraphs, emerging science, age of Darwin, as an air of immense technological and scientific change. Moving from religion to secularism from faith the logic. But is today's guest Dominic green shows in his new book, the religious revolution, the birth of modern spirituality, 1848 to 1898, religion in the 19th century was a much stronger force and also a lot weirder than we give it credit for. What we discuss is during the period that introduced Darwin's theory of evolution, democratic revolution, mass urbanization, and the industrial revolutions, also brought with it a new kind of religiosity. This period didn't see an absence of religion, but instead new forms of spirituality that filled the vacuum left behind by the diminished prominence of the church in Europe and American politics and life. In fact, what led Dominic to think about writing this book topic was when he was physically rehabilitating, he decided to take yoga classes and wonder how did a physical expression of eastern spirituality find its way into western public consciousness? In the 1800s, while it was fueled by rapid scientific and technological innovation, these decades were also a time of social strife. You saw the abolishment of slavery and serfdom, the first woman's rights convention at Seneca falls and countless artistic literary movements. But this period was also plagued by the aggressive rise of colonialism, subjecting entire populations to those who had a bottomless appetite for money and power. There were all sorts of influences that caused this change to happen. New Sanskrit translations of Hindu and Buddhist texts influence a works of Ralph Waldo Emerson. You also see the rise of occultism from upstate New York to Bombay to Italy. Religion and nationalism also entwined for Richard Wagner and Nietzsche, finally, you see the rise of the theosophist movement, which is sort of The Crown jewel of religion as self help..

"The plain taxis to a halt, its passenger, Adolf Hitler, is in a deep, dark funk. Despite his extensive aerial election campaigning, he still not a comfortable flyer. That never helps his mood. Plus is host today. The Italian dictator Benito Mussolini has been overheard describing the new German leader as a model headed fool. But it's more than that. It's the sheer indignity of the trip. Going cap in hand to another? This is something that just doesn't happen in the Hitler universe. Since Germany's withdrawal from the League of Nations, the Nazi state is fast becoming an international pariah. The old foes are getting flustered. Hitler can play the gentleman only likes, sending a congratulatory telegram to the newly elected president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt. He can hold a convivial lunch at Britain's league minister, Antony Eden. But he isn't kidding anyone. The American Jewish Congress, amongst others, is flabbergasted at the direction this new Nazi Germany is taking. Adolf Hitler is giving the world a major headache. Franz meanwhile has been making overtures to countries in Eastern Europe, Poland, Czechoslovakia, the USSR, floating the idea of an anti Nazi block. Hitler has since bought off Poland with a meaningless non aggression pact. But the threat for Germany remains one of tactical encirclement. It's the same old two step that led Europe to war in 1914. It will put a dent in Hitler's plans to lead his people, his folk into the promised land of conquered Slavic territory, the living space, Lehman. Unlike Germany, Italy was one of the First World War's victors, the founder member of the League of Nations. But Mussolini's now having some troubles himself. The league hasn't cared much for his military adventuring in Libya, or his neighbor bombardment of corfu he seems bent on making mischief in Albania and Ethiopia. Fascist Italy will help provide a counterweight to the French, Hitler believes. He and el duce, as Italy's leader is known, must present a united front. Mussolini will be his useful idiot. If you discount Hitler's war service and his earlier shuttling between Austria and Bavaria, this excursion to Venice is his very first trip abroad. For an aspiring world leader, one now aged 45. This is surprising. Hitler's people have chosen the perfect spot for the meeting with Mussolini. The Palazzo vendramin Calais, on the Grand Canal. It's where Richard Wagner Hitler's favorite composer spent his final days. But they've misjudged the rest of it. Hitler already in a grump, a lights in his crumpled suit and oversized raincoat. He's confronted by the sight of a stiff armed, saluting Mussolini, replete with black uniform and gold braid. Behind him stands a guard of honor, dolled up to the 9s. Mussolini has been something of a pin up for Hitler. Fascists have been in power in Italy for a full 12 years. He even has a bus to build ducey in his office. And doesn't Mussolini know it. As Hitler approaches, the Italian whispers to an aid. Hail imitator. In the macho faceoff, Mussolini embarrasses the Führer further by making him lead an inspection of his troops. Hitler shuffles down the ranks, sweaty, disheveled. Hitler climbs gingerly into the motorboat that will take them across the lagoon. Virile Mussolini stands strident at the prow. The tin pot posturing soon descends into fast. As they cruise past the row of naval destroyers, closer inspection of a display of flags revealed it to be the sailor's underwear flapping on the line. In the Piazza San Marco, Venice's great square. Il duce subjects Hitler to a marching parade. As an off key band plays. But the goose stepping Italian troops cut across each other, bumping into one another. Rival regiment starts squaring up. The odd couple push on regardless. Hitler barks at Mussolini in his impenetrable Bavarian dialect. Mussolini and his schoolboy germ and shouts back. Neither was able to understand a single word the other is saying. Nothing is settled. Nothing is achieved. At the official reception and Hitler embarks on a two hour rant, a yawning Mussolini sneaks off early. In Berlin, in Rome, the meeting is reported as a tremendous success. Since January 1933, when he became Chancellor. Hitler's power grab has proceeded with a speed and ruthlessness that has taken even his most fanatical followers by surprise. Not long after getting his feet under the desk came the Reichstag fire. The suspicious burning down of the German parliament building gifted Hitler, an excuse to implement draconian emergency legislation. Within mere weeks, Hitler's rivals were crushed. Communists, social Democrats, and liberals now languish in work camps. Freedom of the press has been abolished. Trade unions are no more. Jews are banned from public life. Hitler has Chancellor, now wields executive, dictatorial authority. Though he still has one final task to fulfill before his totalitarian project is complete. Since the very beginning Hitler's rise has been backed by the muscle of his street army, the storm up Taiwan, the SA in their brown shirt uniforms, these paramilitaries have been Hitler's boots on the ground. The fists in the face, the enforcers of Nazi rule. But of late, there has been trouble brewing. Doctor Chris Dillon in early 1934, on paper, there's 3 million SA men, another one and a half million men in associated coordinated groups. And these men are very much kind of like aware of the power that the collective presence of their bodies performs on the German streets. So they marauded through towns throughout Germany, thumbs in buckles, disdainful and arrogant, and they sing of a second revolution that would overthrow the.

"Hello there and welcome to classics for kids. Of course, I don't have to tell you that holiday is coming up and by we've been listening to spooky music about trolls all month. Today we have some more appropriate music for Halloween, some marches, some dancers, and some very bumpy ride. That Greek. He certainly knew I think or two about roles. That is griggs march of the trolls from his lyrics read. But on Halloween, it's not only roles who march marionettes to two, even dead ones. Some people may know that as the opening to a television show, but way before Alfred Hitchcock and his show were born French composer Charles Gould wrote these funeral march of a marionette. Is marching to the RiRi for you? Well, how about dancing? It may still sound like marching, but that is the ancient chant DS ire. Day of rat from the mass for the dead composer Franz Liszt uses that tune to let the dancing begin in the top and tans. Dance of the dead.

We are one of the things that we can do is to give our opinion about the NFL. The fact that you're making a big deal about the NFL. Many of us are very, very, extremely annoyed about this.

I speak out against it all the time. But this is a bit of a bit of a story I got. I got a minute for it. I also I'm very, very upset with communism in Cuba.

I mean whatever though you know pretty good looking guy let me tell you that and you know here's the thing about richard wagner some. If there was a guy there was a guy that was truly alive and he did that shit. He helped capture kingdom. He was the king-maker then why wouldn't he himself became And that leads me to a greater question Would people vote for me. I guess you don't vote. If for the king. I guess you're born into it However my name is john. My father's name is john. He was the first song of his father and his father's name was john and his father's name was john and they're all the first sons and i'm the first son too so you know very very keenly like in a lot of ways and a lot of people would say you know. I've heard this a lot. I'll be standing. You know i just be happy. I just so happened to be standing up on a hill looking off into the distance And you know there will be a lot of people lower on the hill on the highest one up for sure in and i'm just looking off into the distance various hirola like and there are many people that i would hearsay. That is a man would follow and they're pointing at me. And i've even seen i've even seen old men take their son by you know. They put their arm around. And they're like that's man right. There is a great man. You will follow him and you know. I've heard that a lot so these kinds of things. I guess you i was born into. I was born into a keenly. You know keenly vibe. You know what i mean. It's a vibe king vibe now a lot of people would say that you know back to richard wagner son that there was no possible way for man to do all that he did and that is where. I say. You are wrong my friend. You are wrong because if you look at my life you will see that. I have a large in a long list of times. I have many would say made some wanna king you know. In a way in a sense i guess and you know and i'm leaning over because i'm really thinking i'm really think in this episode and this is the first solo cast that i've done in a while so i'm excited You know. I'm almost seven minutes into this thing. And i'm losing my train of thought. But it's our. We're gonna keep chugging through because i just got to do it because you know what. It's i restarted this episode. Too many times. And you're gonna get where you're going to get in. You're gonna like it okay now onto onto today. It's weird to think like you know back in the day and night in the nineteenth century. I'm sorry the twentieth nine. No in the nineteenth century win. The fuck was ragnar. Send where his name is. Wherever i just said yeah okay. So this guy Rodney son okay. What while we're going to go to ragnar book and ragnar lost brooke ways a man and we're gonna fast hazardous were blah blah blah and. We're back now. Here's the and we're back all right. So here's the thing about on magnusson. He was supposedly born to the king of bundaberg. I think that's how you pronounce it. And he was taken by danes after his father was killed. Now he was taken by danes because he had to escape The other you know the essentially his his uncle his uncle wanted him dead because he wanted to be king. And i know you're thinking giannis sound like an idiot. I know okay to stick through it with me all right now. Here's the thing. Richard wagner son was not true the a son of regular loath brooke baregg. Northbrook had many sons who. I've are the boneless bjorn ironside Secured and You know i. I should mention that. I am learning history from tv shows. I've watched on netflix. And hulu one is vikings and the other is the last kingdom and so. Here's the thing in vikings you know all of the danes believed in odin and all of the other Norse gods and a lot of people mistake norse mythology with greek mythology and the fact of the matter is. They're not the same very similar similar. Gods but i you know i would almost compare it to you know Christianity are no no. I'm sorry catholocism and being jewish you know Similar but not the same. And now if i had to go back in time and i could live in any time you know. It's easy to say that. I would choose to live back with the vikings and stuff there plagues There's a lot of rape A lot of slavery and You know the white man ruled so asked me. That was probably not you know not the worst time to live nanking but seriously you know like it. It really wasn't What's the word. It really wasn't as great as it looked. I would probably choose the roman times just because they got to look out and live in greece and because they got to look out on you know that nice see and probably beautiful women by the sea in like sochi robes with the handle this you know and just like loosely like you know kind of flowing in the wind with their dress and i would walk up. This is what i would do. This is exactly what i would do if i was. You know one of the kids run around back. Then say i've got some shitty little sandals on and shoot a little robe little skimpy robe and you know just kind of mosey in through the town and the nicest silky woman flowing in the wind and she has a finger like this and for some reason. She's just sitting there. She's not say anything she's in. This still pose. I would go over to her. And i would be like. Hello ma'am man. No no not ma'am. That sounds strange. i would say my god you beautiful. I swear i walked by you. In the first thing i thought was could be such creatures so magnificent and then she would be like kiss my hand boy and it'd be like yes in a kiss up her arm and she slow down boy so aggressive and it'd be like i'm sorry you just struck me with your beauty. I feel as though. I have just been struck by lightning. And she'd like okay and then she'd be thinking who is this mysterious man in this shitty sandals with this shitty little skimpy robe. It's johnny rodriguez. No no it's john. Rodriguez son of john son of s john father to the son of john. You know a lot of john. She be thinking a lot about the name.

She doesn't want you with your family. Or she doesn't want everyone with their families, too. They don't want anybody with anybody's family family gatherings or how this is spreading. Even then there's no evidence to back that up. Well, what are you supposed to do? If you say something racist? Because if you say something racist, you'll have to quit your job to spend more time with your family. Also, if you wear your mask, that means you love Grandma. Oh, I see. 800 to 2 to ABC is the phone number 1 800 to 2 to 5 to 2 to it is a pleasure and a privilege to welcome our next guest to the program. She is a medical doctor. And former member of Congress representing the state of New York, who you could follow on Twitter at Nan Hayworth. Doctor Nan Hayworth. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, John. And I hope everybody got a chance to see that great piece that just praised you to the skies Well deserved and the Johnny Carson Comparison. Could not be more apt. And the highest compliment anybody could have in your industry and you deserve it. Well, thank you so much. I appreciate that, in the piece that Dr Hayworth referenced is in the Daily news that dropped yesterday. Richard Wagner is the author and and Nan has tweeted it. I have tweeted it. Randy's tweeted it S O. Definitely check that out and appreciate your kind remarks. Moon suitors. Thank you. Well, let's start with this news that we are getting closer to a vaccine because I was watching the financial channels this morning and stocks in any number of sectors, including the Las Vegas casinos. Had a very good day because investors seemed to be of the belief that the vaccine is coming sooner rather than later. Your thoughts Yes, John. I saw it very exciting. Modern, of course, is also enjoying Quite a nice boost in investment. Not surprisingly, this is I mean, it's It's fantastic news. Obviously, John, but more importantly, With every Ah, with every week we get more. Information that adds to the credibility. Off the Yeah, of the notion that yes, we are going to have a vaccine. This Manhattan project operation warp speed, which they The whole nature of this, John. I cannot emphasize enough. There has been nothing like this in medicine. The closest we can come is the development of the polio vaccine, which took decades quite honestly. But even in this final push took several years on and that was amazing achievement. This is Ah, just a testament to the advancement of medical science of information science, the wonderful way in which in today's information era we can mobilize coordinates. Connect and synergize information technology, health care, Ah, technology and and that body of knowledge, Clinical research. And let's let's make very certain, especially in the political year to emphasize that the fundamental attitude of President Trump and his administration has been to eliminate bureaucratic and process barriers that have existed for decades and would have formed a tremendous obstruction. To progress potentially had they not had the attitude of the very highest levels of our government that they were going to eliminate those barriers so that we could get this done, and it's someone like a president Trump who Khun re imagine these things because he is someone who truly did come from A different world. And and it's a wonderful thing to the American people. So I think we should all be very pleased with this news. The science behind it. By the way, this report showed that the folks who were administered this Test vaccine developed levels of antibodies that would be expected to confer immunity there now expanding the number of people who will get thes. Get this test vaccine. That's you know what Phase Three is about, You know, you take it to the few 1000 people level. And if those results were born out the administration, Trump administration and industry in Trump Administration's invested taxpayer money in this are poised to already to manufacture at scale and administer. That scale. There are a lot of people driving around who were saying to themselves. If there is a vaccine, and it works, then that obviously is something that they'd be interested in taking many of them, but they're worried that they're going to rush it. And it may not be effective. Should they be worrying about that right now. Uh, the news that that I mean, John tells me that it assuming that this can be manufactured at scale and safely done. WeII. We should feel quite confident that it will be effective. In phase three determines that Yeah, you know it. I mean, you know, you do say studies for a reason, because you scale up you know, you learn more about the behavior of these vaccines or pharmaceuticals or biologic, you know, enlarging human populations. But assuming that you know that they do everything the way we're accustomed to having You know, vaccines produced generally speaking here, we, uh whatever the molecules are putting in a vaccine or the ones that are manufactured in scale. We should feel good about this. You have a question for Dr Nan Hayworth. Give us a call at 800 to 2 to K A. B. C 1 800 to 2 to 5 to 2 to Dr Hayworth, Your governor in the state of New York has been yakking it up on the late night shows he was just on with Jimmy Fallon.

The princess wanted him to stop touring and settled down and focus on teaching and composing instead so while he and the previous his previous love interests come tests had needed to escape. Paris and scandal instead list was installed in the princesses estates as last paying concert was in September of that year and he was thirty five at the age of thirty seven. He accepted the permanent post of capita MEISTER. Basically the person in charge of music for the Grand Duke of Weimar. This position came with a royal benefactor. Carl Alexander to be his patron so he had the financial and social backing to just continue his own work. Liz Move to Mar. And the princess later joined him there. In addition to his ongoing teaching and composition list started trying to create new musical forms. The most famous of these was the symphonic poem which is a musical piece. That's meant to evoke or illustrate a story. Or if you SA- Visual Art. These compositions were really groundbreaking. And they attracted more music students. He wanted to learn from him. He dedicated most of his music around this time to the Princess Caroline and while in Weimar List wrote what's considered to be his most accomplished symphonic work in Faust symphony or Faust Symphony. This is essentially a series of interconnected symphonic poems based on Johann Wolfgang Von Jeff. This tragic play faust guarantee and. Schiller had both lived in. Weimar and Liz drew musical inspiration from their literary work. His post capital Meister also meant that was responsible for conducting the orchestra and in doing so. He really revolutionized what it meant to conduct up until that point. The conductor was basically a human metronome. He made sure that all of the orchestra played in time with one. Another and the nobody missed their cues. But at least added gestures and expressions and an emotive physical presence to guide with. The Orchestra's should sound like in the shape of the playing itself. And this is pretty much taken for granted in the field of conducting an orchestra today. That's how it works. At the end of the eighteen fifties life became more difficult for list. He resigned his post in Weimar in eighteen. Fifty nine and at that point. Two of his children also died one in that same year that he resigned and then another a few years later in eighteen sixty two he also got caught up in a musical feud known as the war of the Romantics and this pitted the more romantically inclined musicians list. Richard Wagner against the more conservative classically inclined traditionalist faction of Robert Schumann Felix Mendelssohn. Yohannes Brahms was basically a dispute between the more avant garde musical scene and the composers who drew their influence from past masters like Bach Mozart and Beethoven this association with Wagner also meant that lives developed a reputation for having antisemitic views but there's significant dispute about whether quotations that were attributed to him in this Area of thought were accurate or they were not at this point. Wagner is kind of notoriously antisemitic in his views. I had a hard time confirming exactly what views were so as whole musical schism was going on list moved to Rome where the Princess Caroline had gone to try to get her previous marriage annulled by the pope. She enlists hopes to get married but her annulment did not go through so they did not and at this point lists turned away from a lot of the world in eighteen sixty three moved to an apartment at a monastery outside of Rome in two years later in eighteen sixty five.

Among Budapest Weimar Rome he continued to teach extensively and cultivated the idea of a master class. And that's an idea that's continued to be part of musical and other artistic education today. He taught these demonstration based classes. He being the master of course for free. He's struggled with depression and failing health for the end of his life and he died in Germany on July thirty first eighteen eighty six by then he had composed about fourteen hundred works although he's pretty universally recognized as virtuoso piano player as well as contributions to the art of conducting in the idea of symphonic poems there are still people that argue that his skill as a composer was all hype. I found several articles that were like five list. Was He really any good? I don't think that's always the case with avant-garde folks though right like even also the case with excessively pretty soulful looking people who acquire an overly excited base of fans that liked to scream a lot.

"See my goodness could. We could just like rattle off the entire list. That would so from Schindler's List which is not necessarily early like the big epic that we tend to equate with John Lewis? But it's a very it's a very I mean. Obviously it's a very moving film do do but it does kind of have at least that may seem that violin is is very recognizable. If you've seen the movie it's one of those kind tickles in the back of your brain like I know this song ooh And the music from from Schindler's List Saving Private Ryan A artificial intelligence Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone which again circles back to Christopher Columbus So as of now John John Williams has done has got his fingers in almost every star. Wars movie except for one He did not do the score for so low but he did do. A song called called the adventures of Han which is part of the larger film score and then he has done done the score for the rice skywalker which releases this week as we mentioned We just part of the reason why we're doing during doing this doing this particular topic one just because you know. Obviously John Williams Wax Poetic But he also has stated that as a writer skywalker. He's retiring from doing the star wars movies. He's not retiring from doing film altogether but he is now no longer scoring the the star. Wars movies going forward So we gotta appropriate to to talk about him going into what is presumably his last star wars movie so but again. He's not retire tire completely because he is set to do these four for the next Indiana Jones movie which is twenty twenty one which will be his twenty-ninth it collaboration with Steven Spielberg he has scored every Steven Spielberg Film. Except for like three or four. which is crazy? Hey you know when you got good thing going like I know direct Incubated like have like baby composed both the US a lot but dang yeah well if if if you will. Here's kind of the thing being is with especially with Spielberg movies. Sorry fragment throat sorry about that There's like this polygraph. Whether it's E. T.. or or Indiana Jones or Jurassic Park. Whatever there's always this sort of? I wonder like fantastical to the story and John Williams. His music does that. What does it in Harry Potter which is not a Spielberg? No but he did Christopher Columbus. Yeah so in other words Christopher Columbus Yeah and then Star Wars. It's always I mean that's why like when I said when I found that that that two disc set of of you know it's the best of John Williams and I'm looking through all the the scores that are on there and the movies that they're from and I'm like he did saving private Ryan he did. Did you know the well. I guess I'd known that he as music for the Olympics. Or you know. And all these other things or you know Schindler's List and I was like I wouldn't have put him with those kinds of movies or even jaws ause even because as you say because those those to me. Don't really evoke course at the time I was like. Oh Yeah. Spielberg did jaws But I've just like sort of a magical quality too too his his music and Spielberg generally he has a magical quality to his. The ones that I from. So it's like yeah it makes sense same with same star wars and and just sort of in a different way but it's there so so yeah so it would make sense that that that certain directors would go back to certain composers closers. Or what have you up things as well. Yeah well in part of that and a good chunk of that and I am not speaking a saying any of this as any sort of authority on composition or music theory or anything like that everything that I know. I've learned from the Internet so I took some classes in college. That was a long time ago. I've forgotten pretty much everything as far as music music for your fulfilling a credit so every all the notes so they have. I got from other other smarter. People telling me things on Youtube So I can put links to videos that I wash in the show notes so people can hear more accredited people say these things but The biggest thing makes Williams at. I don't offices intentional. You know you'd have to. I don't know the first thing about scoring I can't even read music So again speaking completely as Internet educated but what makes the idea at least what people think. Why a John Williams scores in particular are just so catchy and memorable and stick with you long long after the fact and you can hear them years later and be like Oh? That's you know home alone. Or you know whatever and is because he writes in. It's a sure some of the influence of based on what kind of music he'd like like solicit you Apparently he doesn't like listening to popular music even his even other film scores. He tends Selena. If you still listen to music. It's classical but he says even he said even then that he doesn't like to listen to classical physical composers that have been dead for four hundred years because he'll still hear something and be like. Oh I wish I could write something. Good uh-huh so But it's his his style of writing for those those music theory nuts out there. Hopefully I'm doing this justice again. Internet is Best described as a form of neo. Romanticism which that refers to music from eighteen fifty onwards and refers there's to the work of composers like Richard Wagner and it's It's used to acknowledged knowledged fact that music of the second half of the nineteenth century remained in romantic mode in an unromantic age dominated by positive ISM when literature and painting eighteen had moved onto realism impressionism. which a lot of big words? I remember hearing what mainly my ought all classes and skin. But I don't remember what they mean. Yes well the whole idea is instead of it. Being The the idea is that John Williams tends to write his music using Very Large scale orchestral music. Yeah at the end of the day it really comes down to. What is the director wants of course but obviously obviously you know he's he's worked with a director off enough he does spill can go to John and say I want this and John can be like okay? You know 'cause they work together often enough so they understand each other. I'm sure but He writes in very similar ways. Offer live is scores as Wagner or Tchaikovsky who use late lease motifs which are we are short usually constantly recurring musical phrases associated with particular person? Place or idea idea so what most people tend to call the four. Steam is one of those Or the imperial March when debater that sort of thing because he uses that that late motif the idea and repeats them often enough but not in a copy and paste kind of way. So like if you listen to like the Indiana Jones theme you will hear essentially the same block of knows a similar tone. But each time it's repeated. He did not use timers repeated but it gets repeated but slightly changed. So that you're not just getting copy and paste copy and paste copy and paste. It's telling a story but keeping the overall idea that story within the same like concise ace idea. I guess It took I..

"You can thank a mad bavarian king for the opening credits to every Disney movie before Walt Disney built Disneyland. He and his wife Lillian toward Europe including stop at the magnificent noise von Stein Castle in the Bavarian Alps of Germany.

Thirty two in the GOTHIC style was decorated with paintings drawn from Medieval Evil German legends and poetry and young Ludvig particularly identified with Luhan Green. A legendary night of the holy grail. who travelled on a boat pulled by spawns when? Maximilian the second died suddenly in eighteen. Sixty four Ludvig then. Eighteen years old was thrust into power unprepared for any serious political leadership. One of the first things Ludwik did as king was to invite his musical idol vagner to come to Munich for an opera festival wagner was also obsessed with German medieval legends and an even written opera version of Balloon Greene story in eighteen fifty wagner who was in dire financial straits eagerly accepted ludvig said vegetation and the young king became one of the composers chief patrons when they met Wagner. Didn't know what to make of the other worldly ludvig Wagner Wagner wrote. Today I was brought to him. He's unfortunately so beautiful. In Wise soulful and lordly that fear his life must fade away like a divine dream in this this base world. You cannot imagine the magic of his regard. If he remains alive it would be a great miracle. Wagner couldn't have predicted it but just two years later in eighteen sixty six Bavaria and Austria suffered a humiliating defeat to Prussia in the seven weeks war and Ludvig was stripped of all real power it was then historians believe that. Ludvig decided to retreat into a fantasy kingdom in the Alps dedicated to Wagner and alternate reality in which he could play out his operatic. Attic daydreams full of Christian Knights Magical. Swans ludvig already. Had the perfect location picked out a rocky promontory near his childhood castle with three hundred sixty degree views of Pristine Alpine Lakes lush valleys and towering peaks. He wrote a letter wagner describing his plans to build a far more ambitious ambitious version of his. Father's Sean Gal. Quote the location is one of the most beautiful to be found holy and unapproachable a worthy temple for for the divine friend who has brought salvation and true blessing to the world to bring his vision to life. ludvig enlisted a theatrical set designer and scene painter from Munich Nick named Christian young to make some appropriately dramatic drawings of the new home Schwangau as Ludwik called it. It was meant to be an idealized version of medieval castle. Missile inspired by visit to the legitimately Medieval Art Board Palace but cranked up to an eleven ludvig. Wanted two hundred well appointed rooms cavernous cavernous singers hall for Opera Performances Ornate Walled Gardens and even a nights bath akin to the ritual baths used by the knights of the Holy Grail. But rather even being a complete throwback the castle was to include the latest technological comforts including electric lighting flush toilets central heating and an electric buzzer system for summoning servants. Since the first stone of Ludvik Dream Castle was laid in eighteen sixty nine he'd written to Wagner that he hoped to move in in three years but construction was still still ongoing when Ludvig finally moved into the first completed section fifteen years later by that point the scale of the castle had been pared down significantly and the the project had taken on a distinctly coach feel looted a deeply pious Christian had begun to identify himself. More and more with the Arthurian Hero. Parsifal another night in the quest of the holy grail.

It's guilt walls and murals would serve as a hall of the Holy Grail. ludvig grew increasingly reclusive. He he slept during the day and wandered the castle at night it higher musicians and actors for private concerts and operas and during various snowy winters.

Eighty five the still unfinished castle had gone wildly over over budget and Ludvig had tried the patience of his foreign creditors when he couldn't repay his debts. The foreign banks seized the property and threatened to bankrupt the state of Bavaria. LUDVIG ministers largely to protect state assets accused the King of insanity and removed him from the Throne Ludvig had clearly shown some borderline align delusional behavior and his obsession with building his new Schwangau plus four other lavish personal palaces and homes was all consuming whether or not he.

"Me is my guardian. I'll surprise announces three AM two hours of sleep you know the whole thing but nothing compared to what someone like George went through as a P. O. W. the veterans are expected to return on Sunday now here's news H. netter rapport with your micro climate forecasts we're looking at clear beautiful conditions for this Friday temperatures in the low to mid seventies along the coast to low eighties inland pretty similar to what we had yesterday this weekend though you're going to see things warming on apple stay warm there Tuesday before things cool off by the middle of next week on a am seven sixty I'm new dates that Iran poor right now it's fair in eighty two in Santee Mike Slater's next AM seven sixty talking breaking news. is the like Slater show you. AM seventy six. then the. this is a good put the rangy this morning broken glass mages was when a particular and. inspired me talk about something but. I think about it. none of the clip is actually that relevant but we'll see it's still good clip. want to send them. it was a smaller wasn't Muller all that was all it was this happen again. second time every time I try to play in a JG club that always always the the wrong club. is it the embrace of impeachment shall. yes. four thirty two. I have. yeah it's just the glass I'm just click in to try and figure out what was going on okay hold on usually either more involved purposes you can engage in but you have to have a life of purpose I tell you what I have a dog many of you know this he's half black lab on which is a retrieving dog and he's half of herding dog he's half the border collie and. one of the things it was made clear to us and it's just obviously true watching him is he's got to have a job he must have a job that he does or he will become miserable and if he had films he would be suicidal and a lot of you have breeding dogs you know exactly what I'm talking about. and I think that's that's the point that we're at we're able to and and yanks right about this we're able to design a world where there's no need to have any purpose anymore here is our utopia and so often Jack do you know the word utopia it's great it means no where. and and I think that's a problem but anyway that's some heavy stuff I was gonna talk area as as Joe this one so it's all true I recently read an article about marriage in the modern world. and I thought a tied in here maybe doesn't I don't know but it's still good so new pew reports on marriage in America and a lot of conclusions but one of them is co habitation co habitation shacking up. you know when they come up with a fancy new academic word for something you know that it's an effort to D. shame at. so cohabitation is up thirty percent from only ten years ago. and. I would think in this last couple years I've been pondering this I don't even know if I said it out loud but. it's actually pretty similar our conversation yesterday about forgiveness if you're not a religious person why get married. what what are the secular reasons for marriage I don't know what they are the only one I can come up with is you get tax breaks so you get a tax benefit to getting married but other that why why would you do it. my wife is talking to some of the other day who is getting divorced they've been married for twenty something years. kids just went off to college is very common. and they fell out of love that's because their kids were the most important thing in their lives the kids came number one it's not supposed to work. marriage is number one kids number two but then this marriage kids were number one for the kids move out and then they both realize that their marriage is turned into a business relationship. they've been cohabitating for. eighteen years what's the point anymore so they get divorced. that's both of your fault by the way. you both let that happen it didn't just happen you let it happen. this person my wife is talking to said that there they say because you change so much as a person over time you should only get merry for ten years at a time. so that that's how that's out who are the so you get married but and then ten years ago by and then you just lose it but is either divorce that point is ten year contracts that's what it does but yeah that's that's a business relationship to and even then what's the point of that. why get married just cohabited for ten years and then you'll be a new person and you can move on and find someone else to serve your selfish needs you selfish selfish narcissist. the Christian view of marriage is obviously very different for this is about serving the other person submitting and dying. women submit men die. and both respect but the secular view of marriage is what. save money on taxes I even well here's what is it is a very very sad Slater. people get mad because of love. because then it would you know it happens at then you fall out of it. well I fell out of the divorce I fell out of love. so you've heard of the different types of love before this philia eros a gap in is another one down and I forget CS Lewis is a book called the four loves. there are four of them but you have philia eros agave those the relative was this conversation philia is affectionate love eros is romantic love that's. but the feelings of love the Greek god of love is eros the Roman version is Cupid. and I got a is unconditional love to the world says life's all about eros the romantic love but it's important okay. but if you're constantly in only searching for eros love as soon as you're not getting it anymore you'll balance out because you're selfish. the goal is to advance to adopt a that's the unconditional love. but again in a secular world why do that. because that takes a lot of work. and self listeners send. the heart and life is all about me. the present yesterday so if I was we call that her twenty seven year old daughter. or when she was twenty seven got an accident. drunk nineteen year old illegal ever get up at San Francisco and she became a paraplegic and her fiance stayed with her and has stayed with the last eight years that's not eros love. romanticism but the guy pay that's the good stuff right there to myself about right there they're gonna pay. now men do not take this as a as an excuse to not. be romantic from time to time I can just hear that. Slater said I didn't have to. a flower no no no. can you do that but the difference between a romance this is good and romanticism. what is the belief that that's all that matters that's what's on healthy so we've been exploring this theme I know we we've started the thing about the call with official but every time I've I can get to the root of something that's broken today I will share it because all the things in our culture today that are broken came from somewhere that it just happened they were purposefully we were purposely driven in this direction. and this is another one that light that marriage is about laugh. eros not I got. so there were these writers and philosophers and writers of the nineteenth century who advocated for this romanticism. but they themselves I had the lives that we should not admire the purses Shelley early eighteen hundreds poet he left his pregnant wife. that's his pregnant wife what with some flus the up in the Alps. George sand late eighteen hundreds she left he notices she left her husband and two kids. and our books are about the main characters quest for romance and passion and emotional fulfillment search for eros. and then Richard Wagner. left his wife to be with the wife of a close friend and all this so this is the exams but all them cheated multiple times on whoever they were with the wedding March song. the wedding March do do do do do do do that's from one of our nurse operas and it's a bummer when you know that this guy died of a heart attack he died of a heart attack when he was arguing with one of his lover's after she caught him cheating on another woman again. there are tax from that's that guy's not much of the data but I'd doubt it that kind of guy. so you could hear this from the first by percentages Shelly he said marriages hateful detestable. I kind of sickening discussed seizes my mind when I think of this most despotic most unrequited unrequited better chains. I just got a guy in a marriage but was a bit but was here to pick up a copy I hated the that the that that part but love their us all the time he was helpless romantic isn't it wonderful now terrible. now here's an author of this piece true love was defined in his poems as passionate desire. rather than self sacrifice which is the moral virtue that marriage has historically crowd. he was finally liberated from the chains of Christian social values because he was an atheist he when I set it up as a cop a nonsense. right all these beautiful poems about love. we go on the more evidence that the believe that are broken contrast today they came from somewhere. and this particular view of marriage is winning in our culture today that it's all about eros. talk about my feelings. as opposed to adopt a which is unconditional love. marriage is not forgetting for giving. so this is all a very long way of saying. been so selfish. seven six given the money seven sixty five three six two anchor funding give Kevin line to call who's a lot of money to do that romantic getaways. romantic getaways romantic dinners. or if your wife's or husband's. languages yes. if this money invested in your marriage. whatever else you want to call Kevin because yours I just want you to have it the bank that the credit card company that they have plenty of money in a bank lately they've they're fine thanks fine so one of those talk Kevin twenty one days later the saving money.
