Chuck in his arms. How much would would with chuck chuck chuck chuck would causing the groundhog to fall to the ground now. The groundhog was actually a female stand in for chuck named charlotte and sadly well passed away several days later. Oh yes but circling the wagons. You had the staten island zoo coming out and saying that it appeared unlikely that the groundhogs death was related to the fall. And that's their story and they're sticking to it now unfortunately back in two thousand sixteen. Stonewall jackson was a groundhog never made to a ceremony on he actually passed away. On the eve of the holiday jackson's death resulted in the cancellation of groundhog day. Ceremonies ending a streak of more than twenty years of predictions at the space farms. Zoo m museum in sussex new jersey and then there was chuck tyson on february. Second of two thousand fifteen. You had mayor jonathan freud. His name of wisconsin. Well let's say. He got a little unwanted attention from jimmy. The groundhog as jimmy chuck tyson. The groundhog bit. The mayor's left ear. that left a mark. Yeah apparently The mayor leaned in to hear jimmy's prediction and got a little nibble instead. Now at first the mayor said there would be an early spring that he was mistaken. I hear too well as jimmy took a chunk out of his ear. Jimmy actually as did punxsutawney phil. This morning predicted six more weeks of winter february. Second two thousand nine. Staten island chuck. Well he bit then mayor michael bloomberg the bite happened just before chuck made his prediction as the mayor reached into the groundhogs cottage. The groundhog has palatial digs and tried to coax him out with some of his favorite sa k s.'s. Can't say i can't say the word because well my little Rudy is sleeping until he hears that word and then he would allow can get very demanding. Apparently chuck's handler swertz said about bloombert's struggle with the rodent while they were trying to lure him out with corn but i guess he was having none of it and then there was twenty sixteen. You had ed the groundhog from turtle back zoo in west orange new jersey. Apparently this large and go up the overslept. And he missed the ceremony. So otis otis. The hedgehog had to fill in apparently the warm weather change to ed's hibernation pattern which caused him to oversleep this according to county officials. So happy groundhog day. Twenty twenty one to which you say. How can you tell. Yeah i hear you. Twenty twenty Groundhog day every day seemingly. So again my suggestion to you this morning.

Really appreciate everyone who has made an effort to support the show and help us through these difficult times this week we covered the raid on Staten Island and the battle of. Some of you may be fans of the AMC TV show turn. If so you may be familiar with the battle of setauket from the season one finale of the show. I love the show myself, but it is historical fiction. It's started documentary. The battle happened in seventeen, seventy, seven. The Co perspiring on which the show is based did not form until seventeen seventy eight. Own, the show, the main character Abraham. Woodhull was married and had a kid in reality at this time he did not, he was not married. He did not have a kid. Also, there were no public hangings going on. During the battle, the British did not hold hostages in the church. There were no British regulars at the battle. Although Major, Hewlett was in command on both the show, and in reality in reality, he was a Tory militia officer on the show. He was a British regular. So as I said. It's a great TV, show I recommend. Everybody watched the show turn. But don't try to learn your history from watching it. In truth, the raids on Staten Island and stuck. It did not really accomplish much of anything. Tactically, the raids did however confirmed that British General Henry Clinton's fears that he was defending too much territory with too few soldiers. So raids like this did help keep him on the defensive rather than considering any sort of offensive actions. If you would like to read more about Long Island during the American revolution.

"Thank you for joining the American Revolution Today episode one fifty three. Staten Island and talk it. A few weeks ago I talked about General House decision to put most of his army aboard ship and sail out to sea. No one was sure where he would land, but most thought the ultimate destination was Philadelphia. When the fleet sailed away from New, York City in late, July seventeen, seventy seven. How left General Henry Clayton in command of the city with a few soldiers, most of whom were Haitians or local militia. General! How wanted his best combat soldiers with him for the Conquest of Philadelphia? In preparation for the removal of so many troops from New York, city, the British abandoned the even tiny tow- holds across the Hudson River in New Jersey which they had held a winter. Places like Elizabeth, town and boy and Brunswick. Although this meant completely abandoning, New Jersey the British did not want to leave any isolated outposts. That could be subject to attack. Putting the Hudson River between the two armies was a pretty substantial barrier for any army to cross. The river was deep enough at all points that no army could Ford it from New Jersey to New York. British forces. However, we're still spread out all over New York City area. including the occupation of all of Long Island Staten Island and Manhattan Island. This was probably about two thousand square miles of land, being guarded by only a few thousand dollars. With, the departure of House fleet, even holding that New York City area left some units relatively isolated and in areas, potentially vulnerable.

The character Scott is in his twenties, still traumatized by his father's death. Who is a firefighter who died fighting a fire? But Scott is Kinda stuck adolescence living at home with his mother, unable to focus on much outside of smoking, weed and tattooing his friends. He has mental health problems and worries that hurt somebody emotionally physically. The people who care about him worry that will hurt himself. It's a drama with comedy.

"We knew there'd be. An opening part where they're watching a movie and we thought it'd be. It'd be funny there watching the purge. Because the purchase shot in Staten Island so everyone Staten Island has left pride in the purge and in the script that was a very long debate about the purge and all. Or none of that is in the movie of, but it was very funny sequence where the women did not understand the rules of the purge. And they tried to explain wire purge sense, and and the guy didn't, and that went on and on and on, and there was a lot of discussion of which character would be. You. Know a killer in Persian who will be hiding under the bed and they all. Talk about if they'd be aggressive or how? They would escape having silent killer. So the movie that becomes like. Two lines. But. It was almost the entire. In improvisations we stumbled. Into this area, where? You know carly keeps asking. What has tattoos name and we knew we wanted to. Have a date and she would ask about it. And in rehearsals, we started laughing about that. They would get mad at her. For asking too personal question, and they don't know this girl, so they're really rough on her. They're gone. In a, she's twice a year she saw. And it'll be desert them destroying her for assiduity questions about his. Dad Dying. and. Then someone in bribes says. Were joking. Scott doesn't care. He asked about it. And then Ricky Villa's. Improvised! Knock knock. WHO's there, not your dad? And in that moment we were like okay, so that's the entire scene. We've been waiting the whole movie. We've been waiting two years for someone to think about joke because it says everything, it says Pete's character denies how much pain he's in. About the loss of his dad, so as a awful jokes about it, because they think it's okay, it also shows that the friends don't know him that well, because they don't realize it destroyed him. So. They only make that joke because they believe he's and he's not okay at all. So the pizzas is forced laugh. That's the audience, though okay, so that's his movies about is that he's not over itch. And when you say improvisations at a lot of that is in the rehearsals, right, you sort of right the script and you sort of put on any rehearsing, and you're finding it, or is it that even happening when you're shooting? That happened while we were shooting so. You started as a scene about courage, and we started something that during the additions where we improvise and earlier. Than when we got into the more serious rehearsals. We figured out. It's funny for her to keep asking clashes like. What happened, tell me. That they'll get mad at her for asking and then that improvisation in the moment, and that's the definition of why I a Jew. Improvisation is because. I really want moments like that to happen I also trust that. I will think of that joke alone in my house. I know I need people like Ricky. To feel like they're allowed to make that. Contribution and ricky was so funny a every weekend he would come over to my apartment and help. Italy Dave and Pete Punch up the next week's scenes he was. A big contributor to the. You. Know in in your your masterclass you talk about characters have different watson sort of a lot of the comedy or tension in seen can come from the differing wants people. Can you apply that to seem like this? What is a character want? And how does that sort of move forward? Yeah I mean. Part of it is that there's a feeling that the they're not going escape Staten Island so in talking about their once. For some people want escape, so you'll bell holly who plays Kelsey? She Dreams of? Making Staten Island cool like Brooklyn. And Eager, probably dreams of leaving. And going somewhere else and Oscar likes it. He's just like A. A troubled guy who's GonNa start getting more and more trouble. That's a ricky villa's his character. He's clearly drifting towards more serious crime and. And Bell is probably love with Scott, but wishes he has act together more. than. Scott has a dream of being attached to artists. That's what he wants. Those never worked hard enough on. It probably doesn't believe he can really pull it off and is just staying stone to not confronts. His pain and his lack of belief. In himself. You? You mentioned earlier about the idea of how Gary Masks. People wear and you. Send your masterclass. Dialogue is essentially the mask. People talk. People don't say how they feel they sort of talk. The opposite of what they feel. This scene I think is really interesting in how it sort of plays with which. As you have character, Pete, who is sort of really frank about the thing but he. Wants to doesn't want to talk about it. Is that sort of the line? You're trying to walk which is? He wants to. There's a sort of a need for him to express. These feelings has about it. Be Sort of can't express in the ways that are actually the way that'd be helpful. I think that the character. Unlike Pete in real-life. Swings back and forth from screaming about his pain, wanting to be taken care of and saying he's totally fine. That's that's what we're seeing so with his friends. He says he's totally fine with his family. You know he's he he's. He's displaying his troubles. And part of that is because it gets them off the hook, probably taking care things around the house or having to get. A real job or He can say y'all got into trouble to do that. US So so he's. He's trying to take advantage of both sides of that cool. As. You mentioned she says. What's the date on your arm? And obviously the data's in nine eleven because I think she would know that date. I imagine there were many discussions about if his dad in the movie was going to die on nine eleven. Can you walk me through sort of how you landed that? It made more sense for the character in the movie to have it be. He died in a fire. That wasn't nine eleven related. We debated that a lot. I mean the story is fictional, so we weren't trying to do Davis light story we were trying to use you know some of his emotional life l., a truthful story that related to things that he is working through and deals with. So the question was. Should you make it nine eleven and they were a lot of people who told them you should definitely should..

Judge got his start as a director in nineteen, Ninety Eight, working on the Larry Sanders show when Garry shandling the star and visionary behind the show, came into his office and told him he's going to direct the next episode. From there he directed episodes of freaks and Geeks and undeclared, but his feature debut came in two thousand five when he made the forty year old Virgin Steve.

Leading to two thousand nine Adam Sandler starring film about Comedy Funny People. JUTIAPA moving in that direction with the even more personal film about marriage two thousand twelve. This is forty. After which as Judd tells it? He got really busy producing while at the same time, he couldn't find a new personal story to tell eventually after spending years working with Amy Schumer Developing trainwreck decided to direct it. From their judd made a few documentaries including a tribute to his mentor Garry shandling and now five years after the release of trainwreck Judd has his latest offering the king of Staten Island a fictionalized version of Davidson's real life. As we're discussing the interview, the film is a bit of a departure for Judd. In terms of the world that depicts the themes that explorers and the balance of drama and comedy reject has made a career making comedy about the privilege, the King of San Island is not filled with people swimming everything will be okay, and that's captured by the scene. We're going to play. Coming very early in the movie, this introductory scene features Davidson's character Scott, hanging out watching the purge with his friends Oscar played by Ricky Boulez Ebor played by Moses. Arias and Ritchie play by Lou Wilson. Joining them their friend Kelsey who Scott, his secretly hooking up within the movie played by Bell, Palley and Kelsey Fran Tara by Carly Aquilino. Other things you might need to know is eager, is the dancer they refer to and Oscars the one that makes a joke at the end of the scene. In general, the film shot by Robert L. Sweat, who is best known as Paul Thomas Anderson's Goto. Cinematographer is Judd's best-looking by far, the scenes specifically is shot in a basement that feels more like a dungeon, and with that here's a clip from the king of San Island by my conversation with its CO writer and Director Judd.

Starting January first thesis Really ridiculous laws That Albany created Took effect and we're dealing with the ramifications of that. You know but let me be clear. I always said from the beginning that we did need to make some changes to our laws can always improve them to make them better and they just system more fair. Unfortunately what happened In all when he was in the dead of night sometime in April of last year. Four o'clock in the morning without any hearings without any input from the police officers from the prosecutor's from victim advocates They passed the package of bills Which when we found out about it we immediately sounded the alarm. Because we knew that victim's rights would be violated That there would be higher crime rates in the city of New York and instead on the people who elected me and we try very hard to convince Albany that they needed to go back and make some changes to to make the laws more equitable. Seir and reasonable. And unfortunately they didn't do that now as you know. And as the police commissioner pointed out and even the mayor has usually on the other side of these issues from from where I see it have come out and said that Changes have to be made these laws we have to restore it to the judges a reasonable Modicum of discretion. So that they can look at certain cases and if someone is ancient to society to hold that person and they also be dangerous to themselves as the judges can't do that in most cases now and also this burdensome discovery law that really has no practical rhyme or reason to it to make that a little bit more workable and we would be okay. Unfortunately the results are worse than I anticipated. As you know just robberies loaner up close to thirty five percents In the city of New York since January I and I hate to say to put on Staten Island Although our numbers are less they're up one hundred percents And we see time and again A known robbers are captured and they're arrested in process and their release input back out on the street. The level of recidivism is really high And I'm very concerned for the safety of the people of our city and of course for all Staten Islanders as well it is horrible. What's going on with the Between letting him out of rikers island Lending mentally ill out on the streets letting the homeless on the streets and the no bail between all those combined. It's just people are starting to get afraid to walk around. Yeah it it really is an. It's unnecessary because as you know. We were enjoying a year year declines in crime crime rates And there was a feeling of safety in our city you can look around any of the boroughs across the city Housing was up and this feeling of safety was up in the city really has enjoyed Economic growth and you know every increasing diversity and everything was positive but nothing really threatens in my mind. Nothing really threatens the the well being of the community Then criminality if people don't feel safe they don't go out at night. They don't spend money They're worried about their children. That anxiety is really something. That is just Unbelievable and you know it's not just the robberies and even the shootings are up in the city as well but you know quality of life crimes to John. We're seeing a dramatic increase in graffiti Look at our subways and buses. That's something that just really eats away at the feeling of of wellness in in our city We had a case The other night with someone You know took a car and took all of the tires of the car We haven't seen that since the nineteen eighties and that's what we're back to now Here on Staten Island across the city. And again this was created quite some advocates and misguided people in in Albany just didn't have to happen We could've addressed some things that needed to be changed in the criminal justice But instead they you know the old adage said they sue the baby out with the bathwater And now what we're dealing with as total mess and you've even seen that some of my colleagues in the other boroughs of announced that they can't prosecute cases because the burden on discovery the exchange of information is so overwhelming that they can't handle it now. We've not raised the white flag here in Rhode Island. We're prosecuting all the cases that come in But my people are working very long hours. They didn't get an increase in pay that working overtime and I don't have money to pay them. I commend then. Their commitment to the safety of this community is incredible. We'll keep fighting to make sure that we keep the people set in Ireland safe and community strong and I believe everybody wants to see some kind of reform but this is crazy reform The the the speaker Never sat down with the rest of it the DA's would law enforcement police commissioners to say okay. Let's reform how do we do it? And how do we do it? Intelligently then that's the problem and I agree with Commissioner Shea and I agree with the mayor that this reform was needed. But right now it's not reform. It's a free-for-all no that's absolutely right and you know there's there's sort of this hyper legislature that each member wants to out liberalize The next one and come up with an idea that's more more untried and unreasonable than the next one You know not having a judicial discretion Is something that listen John? Every other state in the Union. I think almost everyone has that. But why do they have it because it works? And that's what makes sense and you know as you know New Jersey. They instituted a lot of reforms but they had a a two year process where they discussed it and that hearings and meetings and then they implemented it over a two year period they retain discretion for the judges for public safety and risk of flight and they provided the resources to deal with. You know those individuals so you don't WanNa hold in jail but maybe they need some counseling. Maybe they need supervision and most importantly as you mentioned resources for mental health because that drives so many of the cases of recidivism that we see especially with quality of life crimes and they did not provide that they did these. You know these they. They're so proud of themselves. They pat themselves on the backup and all these as they make these reforms. They did not allocate one cents so the support services that are needed to implement of the programs and as you know in particular in upstate New York. They are really sort of drowning now in this extra workload and they've gotten the personnel to to handle it so it's a chaos that they created and only they can fix and so I implore The state legislature to sit down again and look at the things that they did that were good and so's and look at the things that are not working or are doomed to fail And let's fix those and make the system there for the. Yes those who are accused of a crime but let's not forget the victims right There are victims of crime now. Their information is disclosed or we had a case. Where gentlemen you know. He was assaulted heinous girlfriend and they announced that they would not go forward and provide information for the police because they didn't want their names and addresses turned over to the individuals who assaulted them so victims. Don't come forward. We can't prosecute crimes if victims don't feel safe and we are the society are failing them In our overall mission to keep our community safe district attorney Mike McMahon. Thank you for your common sense and thank you for your courage to stand up against laws. That are wrong and let's catch up again real soon. Thank you John. I appreciate it And thanks for your kind words and we'll keep fighting until we get it. Squared away up in Albany. This is the catch rock paper. We'll be right back..
