"Collab- there with the spouse james one and i like there's seven times he's a miss for me but generally speaking i like what he does. So you'll see what. I think a malignant if you listen to sparky priority over there. I'm known as the lich because of my love of books stock apart here. That's nothing special books. We all love books. It's all perfectly legal so what we're going to do is just kind of briefly recount what the series is about and kind of our our feelings in a very broad sense about these two books and how it fits into the series and keep it all spoiler. Free is going to be pretty brief. Because then we're going to hop over to the spoiler section and talk about both of these books in depth but just in case you're still kind of on the fence about the series or want to hear a little bit more about it Stick around for a minute and will tell you about it. So i'm going to start to spoiler free section by giving you a little bit of a sales pitch l. k. Do you love fantasy. Yes more specifically like we do. Do you love portal fantasy.

"You'll have bad times but it will always wake you up to the good stuff you weren't paying attention to how is this film portray love in different ways. What about this movie allows it to successfully draw in its audience. We'll goodwill hunting came out in nineteen ninety seven and it was directed by gus van. Sant it stars. matt dillon. As will hunting. Robin williams as sean. Maguire ben affleck as chucky stellan scars. Guard as lambeau or professor lambeau many driver as schuyler and casey affleck as morgan o'malley so before we get too deep into this film i'll provide a bare bones summary of the plot so that when you go ahead and watch it yourself you won't be too spoiled but i do have to go over a little bit here Just so that Y'all know what i'm working with here. So the title character will. Hunting has a genius level. I q but he still chooses to simply work as a janitor at mit. That's that's what he decides to do. I think beforehand. He has a job at the. I believe he just construction with with his friend chuckie And that's where he that's where he works as well and he doesn't really do much. So professor lambeau puts a graduate level. Math problem on the chalkboard Outside of his classroom to see if any of the students can solve it and again. Keep in mind that this is. Mit is smart kids when he discovers that will hunting solved it. He was also the only person to be able to solve it. He decides to to help this unguided youth so to speak to reach his full potential. When will is arrested for attacking a police officer. Lambeau makes a deal to get some leniency for him if he agrees to get treatment from therapist. Sean maguire sean maguire being Probably one of robin williams best performances if not his best Definitely one of my favorites. If i can if not my favorite Now obviously it gets deeper than that. But i i again. I strongly encourage anyone who hasn't seen this film to go ahead and watch it with that being said this film shows love in three different ways among three different types of relationships and i think this is important because in each relationship that will hunting. Has he's understanding. Another facet of what it means to have these connections with people and a big piece of huntings character is that he's very socially detached or was that. What is that with the right with phrases. Yeah he's very socially detached from just people in general So this is a good way to for the movie really portray him learning about what it means to have these connections with people so the i i is the most traditional sort of Sort of love. And that's the romantic bond between will and schuyler so will end schuyler. They have a off and on relationship. I mean ver- it's clear that skyler really examined. It is clear that will really dig schuyler now It's it's a bit more complex than that because of the fact that will actually a couple times the movie just said i don't love you. He urged to schuyler. And i think schuyler online most girls i feel like or unlike most unlike what most people should probably respond to the fact that will said a lot. I don't really love you. Schuyler actually said all right. I get you but i'm going to be here when you do or or your you know or when you're ready Essentially and i think that this really catches will off guard To the point where at the very end of the movie he decides. You know what i'm going for. I'm i'm going right for her. So she he gets. He gets a car. I believe in. He's going to her all the way in california and i think he's gonna either try to plead to get her back but we. It is alluded to the fact that if he were to go down there and ask to be with her. I'm sure that she would be all over that She just was looking for him to or she was just waiting for him to really just grow into himself with that and i think that'd be the perfect opportunity for him to do that for sure. Now the second bond because we're going to talk about the second type of love here. The second one is between will and chuckie now This one we definitely see more of at the beginning. But i think i'm chucky has some great lines that i really wanna make sure i hit upon but chucky basically is like a brother to will. They're not necessarily brothers. But chucky has been able to provide that older brother vibe for him that he never that will hunting. Never really got so. Chucky is always there trying to get him jobs trying to trying to do anything he really can for will but will or not. Well sorry chucky. Has this line later in the film or he basically talks about. He's like i'm dreaming of the day. Where where i i go to knock on your door and you don't answer because you're not going to be there. You're going to be somewhere else like you're you're gonna have moved on. He's like. I can't wait for that to happen. Because he's so upset with will because will is wasting. His potential and chucky understands that and he thinks aloud he says to himself. Yeah i mean. I'm going to be so happy when you're not going to be here to lock on my door because you're going to be out doing stuff. And i think that this is a beautiful line from chucky. Because it really shows how chucky feels about will hunting but at the very same time will hunting just you know will just really does care about him has like an older brother but he ends up taking chunkys advice and he goes on to california at the end of the film. Now i would say that chunkys character is very important for will because he is essentially a sounding board for him throughout this whole process. He doesn't always see ida. I with this next person. But when he does see idaho with will. I mean they really work magic together so now. I think it's just about time to talk about the third and final love in this movie. And i would see you know granted. It's it's a little bit of a of a stretch. It's a little bit but rather than full blown love. I would actually say that. It's it's the bond between sean maguire. And will that that counts as love in my eyes now. They don't always get along. in fact. They argue quite a bit towards the beginning indefinitely. Definitely during the mill was well they just absolutely always have it out for each other.

So it sounds like there definitely is history from the very beginning of being some pretty shitty practices. Absolutely. and Luckily. Especially manual but with her trusty sidekick as read her side, she is going to help the people of Bethel and help them heal and help them move forward and I am obviously chomping for the next book I cannot wait I cannot wait to see this world open up cannot wait to see their relationship develop Emmanuel, and Ezra I can't wait to see her lead. The people very fascinated where we will end up with the father and the mother and how. This is all going to shake out because I don't think the father and the mother are really diametrically opposed like they have made them out to be in the Scriptures, I agree definitely insides of the there's two sides of the same coin. Yes. Just like you know the sun and the moon and all of that -ality I I. I. Agree with you an earlier statement that you made I don't think that either side is good or bad. I think they're just gods. God's Kinda don't care. Own they kind of just have their own way of existing. Yeah. They know subtypes gods are. Portrayed as being very. Absentee. A human concepts right and you know it's obvious that people perverted twisted both the mother and the father So we've got to figure out where we're going with all this and maybe it will be duality. Maybe it will be we need both halves or maybe it will be as I said earlier you just kind of be God just be Your own God I'm very fascinated I'm very excited. So perhaps it goes without saying I give this book five out of five journals. There's nothing I would change about it. West side from more blood and more. Gore's always welcome But there's quite a bit of that I mean there's All the water goes bloody for Awhile Yeah Creepy Shit but I could always use more but other than that. There's really nothing I would change about this book giving this book five plagues out a five. Agree this book is not what I expected. It's everything I wanted.

"sean maguire" Discussed on The Worldshapers
"Welcome to another episode of the world. shapers I talked to other sites, fiction and fantasy authors about their creative process i. am myself I did well it by the way your host I am myself a author of science, fiction and fantasy. Next thing I'd have coming out will be the paperback version mass market paperback version of Master of the world that's coming out in August that's book to in Maya series, the world shapers. Same as this podcast oddly enough. From Da Books book. One was called World Shaper and it started at the same time as this podcast did back in August two, thousand, eighteen and book three of the Moonlit, world will be out in trade paperback, and e book in September, so that's what I've got going on and that trilogies Afar trilogy. Series is all about people who shape world's living inside those worlds, so it's very much like authors living inside the books that they create which tied it in really well with my idea for doing this podcast in the first place. In the story Shana keys get such aced out of her world An adversary She doesn't even realize she shaped her world. She just thinks it's the only world there is, and that a mysterious stranger named Carl Yachts shows up and tells her the truth, but she doesn't remember any of it, which is strange a however this adversary has come into her world, and gradually taking it over, and she can't save her world, but she can't save the other worlds in this vast labyrinth of shaped worlds of show. Follow Carl and go from. From world to world, and try together the knowledge of these worlds, and take it all to a greater. WHO's the mysterious woman at the center of the Laboratory? So that's the basic premise. The first book as I said takes place in the world is very much like ours. No, not quite the same as the second one takes place at Master, the world that's coming out of mass market paperback in August takes place in Jules. Verne inspired world and the third The moonlight world takes place in a world with well where wolves vampires peasants so my. Serbia looking forward to that coming out the other things that you have coming up are tied to this podcast. The one thing in particular is a anthology of short fiction from people who were guests in the first year of the world, shapers podcast big names like John Skulls, and David Brand Tanya Sean Maguire, a really great collection of fiction about half new in half reprints in the process of working on that now, just waiting for some of the new stories to come in, and I'm hoping to have that out. August late August. Maybe September if things don't go smoothly as I hope, but certainly in the late summer that should be available. All right well. That's all I will say about that for now except to mention that the. PODCAST is part of the schedule on PODCAST NETWORK ALL RIGHT? Let's get onto this episode's guest these files.

"sean maguire" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books
"Overwrought writings interesting. You'd like to think that but I think kings fans actually did not like this book quite as much as his other stuff because it was such a departure from the horror but publishers weekly continue surprisingly is is a gentle story. Despite violence corn is standard vulgarity because king is ingeniously interposed himself between reader narrative. As if he were telling the tale allowed with a soothing cadence particularly audible in the evocative prose qurqus. Who We've mentioned before says this is an adventure. Fantasy for young adults or variable prepubescent among kings most accomplished works some of King's smoothest writing at slickest effects with the usual super cosmic scale down to reasonably familiar villainy. Though the sales won't assumes WILL BE SUPER COSMIC AGAIN. I think over positive on the stuff I never hear. The eyes of the Dragon talked about his amongst king's most accomplish works. I think it's totally left out of the story. And I have talked to some king fans who are not even aware of this book's existence it seems to have been lost over the last thirty five years and I wouldn't rate it as one of his most accomplished works either. No but but he did some very specific things very deliberately and succeeded at all of them from a craftsmanship perspective. This is I think. One of one of his most successful turns at at the wheel but as far as being like an overall like better story than some of the other things he's done or have more quality than some of the things he's done it's up there but it's not at the top now and finally people magazine who. I don't think we've ever used people before review but they have another positive. What many are likely to be held hostage by this delightful fairytale drag it as a gentle fable related temper tones by knowing narrator and they get right to the heart of the matter what their readers are interested in this quote yet dragged is not just a children's book how many children's books mentioned flaccid penises as this does on its third page drag. It is a fully realized novel capable of captivating readers of all ages while it represents a departure for king it is not completely divorced from the rest of his work dragging contains one of his most familiar themes that evil is cyclical and while it can be vanquished it never really vanishes with this compelling tale from another time genre king proves he is as versatile as he is prolific at again that idea that evil cyclical comes back again and again yup most notably in The dark tower itself. Is it wraps itself up with that? Holy Cyclical Nature. Whether or not good will ever top. We don't know right exactly so jade. I think that leads to the conclusion of this book. What are your overall thoughts allows? I was just kind of hinting at a moment ago. I think this is a really amazing book. I enjoyed it a lot. It took me a little while to sorta warm up to it and I think it was because of king style that he was writing it with this voice of the narrator as one of the reviews put it he was putting himself between the narrator and the reader almost directly and it took me a little bit of time to grow accustomed to that but once I had and once I kind of saw what he was doing. I was able to fully embrace that and move forward with the story and really really enjoy it. I am really glad we came back to visit this book for the podcast. I enjoyed reading it a lot. It is one of King's better stories for all of the craftsmanship that he put into that he was doing something different than he'd done before unusual in general and I think he pulled it off really really well. Yeah I would agree. I like what you said about the intricacies of how he put it all together the hallway. It ends with everything coming together nicely. That's something that really makes me happy. And this book really does shine a light on a lot of the themes that are in his other books that evil cyclical part. We talked about the Meta aspect of king sort of inserting himself into this book. But with such a light touch. I think that that's always whispered for the dark tower right like it's so heavy handed in the dark tower and again a lot of events changed in obviously his into with getting hit by the van. Almost dying like all that plays into it like it's so heavy handed there with king becoming a character where in here he's there but you can't see him but there's enough there to realize like oh he's a part of this but in an interesting way and obviously the other connections just between the characters of flag and the Kingdom of d'alene in how this all ties back into the dark tower. I think it really illuminates that book from a different perspective in. It's sad for me. That king really hasn't done other writing like this that he's not done. The sequel with Thomas and Dennis going off on their venture or something else. That's along the sort of fairy tale piece. I think the closest he's come is probably the wind through the keyhole which has a lot of these elements of storytelling and fantasy but with a lighter touch and not quite as horrific. But that whole fairytale feel to it. I think that that's probably the closest common. If you remember we really like that. Yeah I particularly enjoyed it so I think he might be missing an opportunity and getting back to that and one of the things that was great about winter keyhole was that it had a very specific style and structure that king decided. I'm GONNA write this nested story and how story inside story inside story. And that's what he built and he did it really really well. And that's I think the only time he's ever done that maybe not to that extent. I think yeah this is another example of King just deciding. I'M GONNA write a story with this structure in this mode and then execute on it perfectly just flexing his skills right. It's great stuff. Yep well hopefully you all enjoyed it as well and Had A chancery along with us. We had a good time and I hope you did as well.

"It. It's real easy to read the book and go but that was the nineteen fifties and the number of women who have had that experience in the twenty first century of being the only woman in her math math class. The fact that there's a campaign to get thirty percent women say that still not it still not a lot and I will say I think at the University of Toronto where my daughter. She's not an engineering but she just started this year and I was there for there when the engineers were having their the big thing that they do the first day. They're all these people in yellow shirts and hard hats running around and I was watching them go by and it was. It looked pretty much fifty fifty I oh I think they're pretty darn close at the University of Toronto in the Engineering Program Right now. So so I'm going to challenge you on that when you say that it looks fifty fifty to find out because there is a thing that happens and this is real. This is like well-documented that when there are thirty percent women in a room are on a bookshelf that it is perceived seemed as being predominantly women. Even though it's not well in this case I asked my wife and she believes that it is close okay. Closer than thirty percent in the high forty s may be so you know pretty close. I confess I look it up myself but I Think University of Toronto at least is certainly working hard to make up so I also wanted to talk before I get to my philosophical questions. Here we're just about out of time but I want to get those in but that I did just want to ask you about the audiobook narration. That's another form of the theater and live. I'm I do some of that myself and currently narrating my own books but I've done a couple the other people's to How did that come about I like to say it's like puppetry but without the pain You know I have this long on career doing character voices and talking to myself because usually there's two performers and you have to do the entire cast so often you are in dialogue with yourself so I had that skill set and my minor in college was theater and speech specifically doing radio media performance So honestly I like I auditioned and audio books are just like trying to do any any other form of any form of writing. There's their submission guidelines in you go and you read the submission guidelines and then you follow those instructions and you turn it on tape And sometimes they'll have you do what is essentially actually a callback Louisville. Say We're thinking about you for this audiobook. Here's a page. Please read that page to US and And then you see what happens I got lucky I did a couple of different things. But then Started Doing Sean Maguire series. I was and just in the booth this morning. She record the fixes on Book Thirteen in the series so So it's it's nice to have a little bit of job security there. She keeps reading these but I have to ask because having done it. It's an enormously time consuming thing recording books Does that. How do you balance that writing your own stuff stuff in recording the other stuff you just as you just have time for it because I find? It's a huge. You know it just takes so much time. Well I don't I don't do a self reducing so I I have an engineer which means that I only have to do the recording part And True I do my own engineering. So that's that's the part that I'm just like you know If I had to do that yet that that the balancing of those two things would be. I think we'll into impossible But but balancing just narrating and writing is not bad. I usually usually six to eight hours a day of the narration depending on the Book and who I am recording for And and then I'll get in an hour so of writing before after Depending again on the book And where I am Sometimes I'm doing it like editing narration. I will often do my edits on my lunch break or something something. So it's I don't find it any different than balancing writing with any other day job and I don't don't she would often like I mean I've done seventy some books but but I'm not I'm not recording Not Recording every day by. I could be if I did if I were willing to do home. Records yourself records but I I most of my career has been trying to turn down the gigs. I don't Wanna I do and it's not something I'm interested in doing so I I don't even know that means I have less audiobook work and then there's also Books that I I don't WanNA record There was a a series that I was recording for a company and the books were Very Rabi And I recorded the second one and said I can't I can't record these. I'm so sorry I know that you don't want to change narrators mid series but I just I don't want to be involved with these folks. I was already using a pseudonym for them and which like they don't I don't do a lot But I'm like I don't I don't need to do these books and I don't want to so I don't Which makes it significantly easier to balance? Yeah well it's reading something out it's D- yeah. If you're not comfortable with the narrative it would be very difficult. I would think too. Yeah I can do it like I can turn in a good performance. It's compelling in all of that but I'm just like that's I don't want to participate in that I'm just going to back up from it. I was listening but I was also checking the enrollment at the University of Toronto. And they're at I I I did over estimate. They are apparently at about thirty five percent. Women at this point Yup so bulky for checking and that was what I sorry. That was what I guess I. I had heard a higher number than that but clearly I had that was incorrect so just to finish up here. They sort of the big philosophical question so you sort of touched unless this already with the sort of reaction talking about other collaboration with three years but First Question Russian is. Why do you do this? You tell stories and in the second question is and what do you hope to accomplish by telling stories. So why do you write and specifically what he writes science fiction. Eddie right this crazy stuff so I right And I I guess science fiction Because because for the same reasons that I do puppetry it is the theater of the possible it allows me to take the natural world. Tip It on its side and look at the Inter connective tissue which helps understand the real world more The reason I right instead of just doing daydreams Is is so that I can share those things with other people. It's also I think I'm I mean I am I am a storyteller and it's something that gives me satisfaction. I like the give and intake. I like that conversation with the reader so I really I guess ultimately I write because it's fun I enjoy it as I said I working turndown gigs. I don't want to do so ultimately and selfishly I write because I enjoy it but the The goal with each book is to provoke to provoke an emotional response the reader and usually to have them share the same emotional journey that I have had when I've been thinking about a character her But each book is different The short story is different. Like the specifics of what that emotional responses very with the lady astronaut books a lot of what I am thinking about kind of consciously are ways in which to demonstrate a different path because we do learn so much from fiction we use is it as a means of Cathartic experimentation trying on different selves and as a reader and in Not as a writer. We do that as writers to but that his readers. That's were trying on these different lives and these thought experiments and sometimes it's the thing we want to try on his just escaping the stuff that's going on around it sometimes. It is purely purely just for fun which I think is also so it valuable important thing but it is Each book we pick up pick up for a reason to to have have. This is journey of some sort and so I am as a writer wanting to create the experience that I have as a reader. Something.

May rapid death. Thank you so much for having me glad to have you and I have to confess. I haven't quite finished calculating stars. I was working on it so I'm about. I don't know three quarters of the way through but you won't give spoilers anyway because I'm going to get you to do synopses. I sit here and a little bit. So the For people who read it so okay but I've I'm enjoying it very much and not least because I'm married to an engineer. So yes identifies with some of the situations starring. Yes yes I found that people instead. That have a strong connection to certain aspects especially women it instead. Well before we get to that. I'll take you back into as I always say this. It's it's becoming cliche on the podcast out. We'll take you back into the mist of time to find out how you first of all became interested in writing and specifically writing science fiction. And you know how you got started in other words and maybe a little bit about where you grew up and all that kind of stuff. So I I grew up in North Carolina my dad worked for IBM and he used to take me to to visit him at work sometimes They had the it was. It was in the days when the computers were still cajal rooms and we didn't yet have personal computers. There were tubes connecting. The building at the first programming that I did did was my name with punch cards and should not was The it felt very science fictional It felt very much. Like what you'd see on the jetsons and things like that and then we also would watch I like I got connected to doctor who Tom Baker. It was my doctor and and we listened to hitchhikers guide to the galaxy on the radio so there is not a point in my life where I remember birther like I remember. Discovering science loses something that was just always present. I unlike the earliest books that I read that I have concrete memories of things like in chances from the stars I remember that one and Lasko good and you know of course. Other things like wrinkle in time and all these books that were just shelved as books but I gravitated to ones that had a fantastic elements. When I started writing which I did pretty young my mom sent me too a writing workshop the camp and And I I would was basically writing the things that I was reading and since I was reading science it's fiction and fantasy. It seemed only natural that that's why I was also writing My friends also were into that so some of the earliest stuff off.
"sean maguire" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books
"Innings of Stephen King's magnum opus the dark tower I'm Jay Rousseau and I'm Sean Maguire you can email us at two guys dark tower at g mail DOT com off with is the Milkman the souring of milk is is a piece because the Milkman is the one thing like that especially since there doesn't seem to be much blood it's weird he's like oh it's GonNa really upset the Milkman and then the Milkman it's interesting the milk bands warning is the people are milking at tickets two boys and one of them can't wait to get out of town because he hates it he wants to leave school and then ending with whole way that king describes it like I feel fairly confident what if you gave me a sheet of graph paper graph out this town yeah the main neighborhoods and the and the roads and wear certain iconic areas of town on our just based on King's description way that I can't with many other places like sales lot seemed like a real place that I could put on the map fairly easily or like the beach in the dark tower which direction is north I don't know I know idea we talked about that for Moncia but this one I'm like yes I only get the geography I know where this is I know this is I know where the river runs through I know where the roads through it's just perfect at I I get it really adds to it because you get a sense of this Jason why certain people live in certain places and how different buildings sort of were the markson houses and how that impacts the look and feel of this yet there is so much language about like the crisscrossing powerlines in the main roads for example there's a line that on a map the two main roads gave the town and appearance very much like Oh Skopje site and the CFP electricity pylons marched across town on a diagonal in in my mind's eye almost concede this all these criss crossing lines that intersect at the center of town make me think of a target if you view it this way Jerusalem's lot is literally a target yeah then you start thinking what is it a target for and I think it's the evil that we talked about earlier right something happened to this town in the past and in Jerusalem's lot the story there was some pretty heavy hitting evil that was the era one point in the past and maybe that just some of it's the linger somehow like it's like it's in the groundwater or something and maybe that worms still pop the evil again so we've talked a little bit about sort of the breakdown of that that third chapter a lot of the talk about geography but then we get to the point of view kings writing from his first two chapters are really focused on Ben and suzy on we have a lot of Ben's interior monologue is even when he's driving into town like we get his direct thoughts sort spacing out while he's driving later on as he thinks about he's come to the now but then we get into that third section and we get a lot of individual characters pieces in an interior thoughts and it gives us a good sense of these characters in a way that without that interior monologue we might not have stood their characters to the extent they would because we would have been left to rely on stereotypes right as a reader because it's very easy for me to say Oh this is a a share in a backwater. Hick town I'm GonNa assume that he's this type of guy when in fact sheriff Parkin's Glaspie is not that type of sheriff may seem slow but he's very observant knows what's going on and he's got his eyes everything that's going around town and that's not necessarily what you might think of if you weren't given that in career monologue from him yeah absolutely I mean I was I sort of taken aback by how much king varies the point of view it almost fell alike is king being soppy here is the second novel and he didn't catch these mistakes but no he's being quite deliberate here we are getting very quick snapshots of new character new character new character and if we don't get to know what they're thinking so if we don't at their point of view and we don't really know anything about them if all we had was ben mears point of view on all this like you said the sheriff would just be a Barney fife type and we would never get Mabel Wirtz we would never get any of that information so kings violating some writing rules by switching pov so dramatically but it's for purpose and he even switches to address us directly as the author at one point there's a line in the middle of a whole bunch of other stuff where he he says in small towns scandal is always simmering on the back burner like your aunt Cindy's baked beans not so and so's baked beans it's my aunt sandy so like okay King just the author of the narrator spoke to me in this moment that was like what we're how did I change point of us there but it works even like that line a lot so it's just I think that even at this stage this is king second published novel he's already flexing some pretty strong muscles he knows what the rules are is breaking them on purpose us to good effect here you mentioned Sheriff Parkin's Glaspie like I also thought that he would be the type of person that Rowland would he's very wary of but very much respect because of that fact that he seems soft but he isn't an east seem slow but he is keenly observant and like Roland would see that in a minute he would size him up immediately and say like yeah that guy looks like he's he's like overweight and middle aged but no it's all muscle and his vision is perfect in he's got good reflexes he's just doesn't move right you know there's a difference in I think all of that becomes through because we get Glaspie's point of view yeah kings got a lot of heavy lifting to do here because we're introduced to dozens of Karen there's like we're not going to be able to spend this whole novel in Ben mears point of view so he needs to introduce US quickly to a lot of people introduces to the town and look at it'll make us at least care a little bit about some of these people because even if we only see him for a page and a half we have to have some sort of buying investment on them right so you got the electricity wants to make good on the Milkman who's a widower in the maintenance man just trying to do his job so he's got a lot of work to do I think he does a good job of getting US getting right in the thick of the action and making it interesting because it could have been a slog to get through but was a fairly long chapter and you know just like who are all these characters should I care but I think he does enough to get us in that mindset of like okay this is important I there's a lot of names here in a lot of people but guessing IT'S GONNA pay off at some point yeah it's like Exposition via journal entry or something like journal position or Yeah 'cause it actually I think works better than some of the Ben Mir stuff which again is is seems over rebel grammatically he's driving down but oh let me think these thoughts about my dead wife or I was almost an accident or yeah I'm on this with this beautiful girl and on talking but then I zone out for a little bit as I remember the time that I was in the haunted house like a Wayne's world flash yeah because I think at one point she asks if he's still there like right like because he's sort of like reminiscing about stuff it's one thing when they're reminiscent into sort of telling stories about like Oh did you and so did you know so and so but like when he gets into this fog so I I think king does a really good job with this the second part I agree all right well we don't have a lot but I think we do have some dark tower thing he's Oh yeah we've got some dark tower Fini's will always be able to find some even if they are the thinnest Fini's WanNa Start Jay sure so I think that chapter three that we've been talking about with the hour by hour breakdown king missed a really big opportunity to stop it part nineteen he was he was going strong and then he went right up to twenty yeah of course you know this is long before he had decided that nineteen was a special number but still it would have been really great if that had just been like nineteen parts yeah that's like basically something that didn't happen I'm calling Athenee but like I said the binny's mine was the very first page of the sex Listen Ben is talking about how to get to Salems lot in how the roads have changed the route numbers of change and the narrator says time had marched Don Ooh she's just so close to the world has moved on just a couple of a couple of words here and there and we'd have that yeah it's maybe like something that evolved into the world moved on Yes exactly right and of course king had written the Gunslinger at that point Yup that phrase is already in existence floating around in there so who knows if it's stuck around in his head here and not that it's an original statement time mark Zahn all the time but like we said these studies are thin we also learned that Uber Marston the original owner of the Marston House had dollar bills taped inside pages of the Saturday Evening Post just like Liz Garfield did in low men in yellow coats and I'm sure that that's just something that people have done but I feel like seeing it again here this is something that King must have experienced himself you know maybe a a are an older relative did this or even heated at some point like the safest place to keep my cash is by hiding in thick magazines or papers in this case right this is sort of a connection back to low men and which of course is connected to the dark tower so by the transit of property was a line when they went different ways they both marveled over the easy natural coincidental impingement of their lives and I think Roland here this call it definitely car even just in the moment seeing your feeling that their lives have changed direction just because they happen to meet that day in the park there is no coincidental impingement in Rowland's world nope as we determined connected all the others so there must not be in ours either that's right so again then but they're sort of their yeah the glass the need that I had was when the sacrifice of Ralphie glick happens the person presenting his body to whatever's there and again it must've been interesting reading this book when you had no idea what was wild it can be about vampires what's going on here but you know we we sort of have an idea he makes mention that the person doing the sacrifice that he's giving it up to the Lord of the flies which is used in the original terminology. of one of Satan's minions right like a demon of some sort the Lord of the flies again that book had played a through the transitive property importance in low men in yellow coats so again a thin thin so the time for fun stuff Sean I'm ready for it laid on me there's a lot of fun stuff in this beginning the real beginning of this book this is a quote that I wrote down like twenty some odd years ago when I first read the book I like so much so here it is again fate not blind at all was equipped with twenty twenty vision and intent on grinding helpless mortals between the great millstones of the universe to make some unknown bread that's getting close to cause well yeah it's totally I used to keep it UH will spiral notebook of quotes from books as I was reading in this was in there and when I was rereading the book for the podcast and I read the Hall yeah I remember this line gotTa talk about it on the show so we talked last week on the first episode about how King changed the name of this novel a couple of times due to just second coming wanted to sound like a sex manual and Jerusalem's Lot sounded too religious so then he ended up with Salems Lot add here we get the backstory of why the town itself is called Salem's lot and it's not really what we thought it was going to be no it turns out that one of the founders of the town heady league that when somewhat feral and would roam around the outskirts in he would tell the kids don't go out there because that's Jerusalem's Lot Jerusalem being the name of the pig so yeah I mean Jerusalem's lot and the town salems lot and all this stuff named.

"The original burglary, the original break in at the Watergate complex and the resignation of president Nixon. It took a great deal of time for public opinion to swing in favor of impeachment. And in those many months, Nixon turned the public against him with his efforts at cover up and his defiance of the other branches of government, congress and the courts Watergate, of course, occasioned hearings public hearings. We haven't had them yet. Here we have not had such hearings. They were hearings by special committee set up in the Senate, even though impeachment would eventually begin in the house, but in the summer of nineteen Seventy-three the Senate held a series of extraordinary hearings in which they began the real exploration of Watergate that led to the revelation that they were tape recording.

That's been out there ever since President Obama opened up every job in the military to women the draft should women. Now be required to sign up for it. A federal judges ruled that requiring only men to register with selective service is unconstitutional governments appealing that decision. And drafting women is now being considered by a congressional blue ribbon commission. NPR's David welna has the story. The Pentagon's top brass have made clear they're on board with requiring women to sign up for a draft. Here's army chief of staff. General Mark milley. When asked about that at the Senate Armed Services hearing three years ago, Senator I think that all eligible and qualified men and women should register for the draft that Marine Corps commandant, also greed, and what this congress.

I know I know maybe too much X men, but speaking of things that aren't X men. So j I know you were caught up a long time ago. But I started watching runaways while I was recovering from some minor oral surgery that I had each grade. The TV show is frigging great. I love it runaways is one of my favorite non x men comics. And so seeing an adaptation that both stays true to the spirit of the comics and also changes a bunch of stuff up to better fit television. And to keep me on my toes. I'm really really pleased. Nice. I meanwhile, watched all of Russian doll last weekend, which was pretty spectacular. I've only heard the Vegas things about that. But everybody seems to like it. It's really neat. It starts out. Very slow. It does both very slow build end something that I particularly love which is very slow genre shift. The nature of the show and. The way it feels changes really radically, and so subtly that you don't really quite realize how hard it's changing until it's all the way across. It's really neat. And if you like if you like if you like weird, it's it's a really really good good show to watch those a pretty quick, which is nice. Okay. Well, I have a lot of runaways to catch up on. But yeah, that's going on the list along with so many other things there's so much television right there so much really good television, which I guess is a better problem to have them the reverse. It's true. It's true. But then there are also books, and there are movies, and there are comics than man earth, certainly is full of things. Thank you king of all cosmos.
