He made a lot of amazing films like the magnificent seven bullet. The greatest gate steve mcqueen was the very definition of a self made man. He rode the fastest. Motorcycles is actually a race car driver he was always on the move in in many ways mcqueen was running for his life looking for a father. Because you see. His dad abandoned him when he was a little boy in his alcoholic mother married and divorced multiple times. In stu of steve's stepfather's beat him and he was out on the streets at the age of nine can you imagine all in his own at the age of nine. He ended up in being arrested. He actually joined the circus for a time. He was searching for some kind of meaning purpose in his life. Well he took some acting classes and was pretty good at it and before he knew it he was the number one movie star and all of the world mcqueen said in an interview. You only go around once in life. And i'm going to grab a handful of it. And it was the sixties and early seventies and everything was free free drugs-free sex you name it. And steve grabbed it all and he also was the highest paid actor. In hollywood he had women had cars. He had booze. He had global fame. He money one time. He said you know what when he was asked. You believe in. God he said i believe in me. That was the way he live. Well you know what he reached the pinnacle and then he just got sick of it all and he disconnected and his doctors told him he was having some problems with his lungs and he needed to get out of la. So steve moved away in nineteen seventy and tried to start a new life in a little town near ventura and he married his third wife there and she wrote in a book. About steve's live steve mcqueen the last mile quote despite the worldwide fien that he had and the fact that he never financially wanted for anything. A certain piece at alluded steve. For most of his life he had seen and done at all in this fifty years earth but there was one thing he didn't have and that was the one thing he wanted most inner peace so steve disconnected from the whole hollywood world and he bought an airplane hangar and filled with all of us super cool restored motorcycles. But there was one thing he never learned how to do. And that was fly so we went and bought a vintage plane known as a stephen by plane and he has some of his friends who could teach him how to fly it and they said there's one guy a guy named sammy mason. Who's in his mid sixties. Sammy a former test pilot for lockheed. It has stunt pilot so stephen. Sammy's spent a lot of time in the cockatoo. That plane as steve mcqueen was learning to fly and they talked about life and the meaning of life. And steve notice something different about sammy and he said semi woods about you. That's different semi said steve. It's my relationship with jesus christ so mcqueen was in three semi said steve. Why don't you come and join me. Church much through a surprise team. Queens showed up at church and the pastor whose name is leonard. Dewitt knew that the famous movie star was in this church but he told people just leave them allow. Let them just come and they did. And one day pastor went. And i know this because i found pastor to win i was reading this story and i thought i wonder if this guy is still alive so we tracked him down. I got him on the phone and he already knew me because we did a crusade up in ventura near whereas and he said yeah we helped you in the crusade. Oh well we had a nice talk. And i said tell me about what happened. Was steve mcqueen. He says greg. I was standing around after a sunday morning. Someone taps on my shoulder. I turn around there. Steve mcqueen he says pastor.

Booze had the coolest machines ever so pastor. Dewitt entered steve's questions and then steve said good. I'm i'm good now. You answered all my questions and then the pets are still reliable. Question for you steve. Steve smiled and said you wanna know if i'm born again right and the pastor said yes steve. Mcqueen said yes past her. I'm born again. I went forward at one of your invitations. A couple of weeks ago and made my commitment to jesus. Christ lot of people don't know this story. The king of cool med kreis and everyone who knew. Steve centers tranferred. Transformation was immediate and dramatic. He spent hours poring over his bible and frayne was bringing all the members of his family to church and bringing friends to church and trying to right wrongs for all the things he had done in his life and it was an amazing thing. Steve wanted to know maury as if the past would be with them. Every week. seems that. I don't wanna get on a soapbox and talk about this before i know more about it so it's was growing and he continued to grow spiritually for a year but he wasn't feeling well when he was working on one of his last films.

A little loose right and we'll start wobbling wa wa wobble and sooner or later the wheels fall right off like any car chase you watch from l. a. when they're streaming those why because right before various people tell us to believe the science and then say seventy two genders and guys can periods and babies. Their whole platform is falling apart and we got to see our former president barack hussein in his global warming beachfront home. That's not a good investment if you believe oceans are going to rise. Spent twelve million a peach ronald but anyway. When barack hussein had his no mask celebrity will raise the roof party and it was caught on social media. what they thought was quickly deleted. But as you know nothing's really deleted social media some dude out there somewhere eating cheetos watching golden girls and two o'clock in the morning screen cabinet and it's it's it's living on so the people who are like.

"I'm talking my friend, Pastor Greg Laurie. He's not just the pastor. He's an author. He's an evangelist, Greg, You've written so many books, and sometimes people write books and I go. I'm so glad that person wrote. That book is now I don't have to. I'm not even joking. You've written a few books. About Johnny Cash about Steve McQueen. And now the new one coming up in a in a couple of months here about Billy Graham. These are the kind of books that You know if I had the time and you haven't written them, I would say somebody needs to tell that story. You told the story of Steve McQueen coming to faith. You told the story of Johnny Cash and his profound Christian faith. And now the third in this series is about Billy Graham. What's the title of that book? It's called Billy Graham. The men I knew, And you know, Billy sort of the glue between Johnny and Steve. Billy was very close with Johnny Cash, and you know, Johnny had a lot of struggles. He struggled with amphetamines that he started using When he began his career. He was on the road, the struggle with them throughout his life and was arrested a few times. I never served time in prison. A. Some people think he did, but he was a struggling Christian, But I underlined the word Christian. He was a Christian. And Billy continued to use Johnny and be friends with Johnny. And he have Johnny playing his crew states, which was a very risky thing for Billy to do at that point in his career, and that moment with Queen When the queen came to Christ, he found out he had cancer about nine months to a year later, And as he realized he wasn't gonna make it. He put out the request through his pastor Leonard tow wit to maybe meet Billy Graham. And Billy came to meet Steve and they had prayer together. And that Billy gave this Bible to Steve. Steve is on his way to a clinic and war is Mexico. To receive sort of an unorthodox treatment for his cancer on so Stephen forgot his Bible and Billy gave his Bible to Stephen signed it to him. And then Steve tragically died and Juarez, Mexico. They pulled the sheet down, and he was holding Billy's Bible. That was the last thing he was holding onto. So Billy Graham, you know there's glue between these two well known figures, the king of Cool Steve McQueen, the Godfather of Cool, Johnny Cash, and to me, the coolest cat of all Billy Graham. You know, he's got to have a special statue in Statuary Hall on and he's gonna be remembered and, you know, he's a He's a historical figure beyond even just being An evangelist. But the reason I wrote a book about America's I wanted issue of the human side, the real side, the personal side. And and actually, as I got to know, Billy is a person in his a friend. He was even more impressive and he already was So impressive is a public figure. But he was everything thing I hoped he would be and more as I got to know him. Well, it's amazing to me that you knew him the way you did because I just revered him so much. I think I told the story that I told you the story that when I was a Yale, I had walked away. The Christian Group on campus. I thought I'm too cool now to hang out with the Christians, and they're sort of odd and I'll hang out with the literary crowd will smoke like clove cigarettes and, you know, be cool and Just as I stepped away from the Christian Group on campus. This is two story and I was kind of like trying to figure out my own half or whatever, wherever I was. One day I heard Billy Graham's coming to campus to speak, yell. I thought What? Like this? Incredible. You know, I've always been like a celebrity hound. I'm like, Wow, Billy Graham. He's coming to campus, and I wasn't You know, not a Christian. I was just kind of not hanging out with the Christian group on campus because I was too cool and so I thought I've got to go see Billy Graham. He's going to speak in but tell Chapel I'm going, you know, and And I was sitting in the Calhoun dining hall. That's one of the 12, then residential colleges in the eighties and Sitting there, you know, probably talking about the little rascals with my friends or some goofy Trivia TV trivia. And I look up. And into the dining hall into this dining all of all, 12 Walks Billy Graham. And all the students in that Christian fellowship. They walk into a side door and had dinner in a private lounge. Billy Graham had dinner with that group that if I had not quit that group a few weeks before, I would have been having dinner with Billy Graham. And I will never forget that feeling like Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh, because I stepped away from God. And it's kind of like I knew that I never would meet Billy Graham. I hope to meet him all these years. But I never met him and he was such a special man. So it amazes me whenever I talk to people who knew him personally the way you did You know, I'm just in all of that, because not only did you know him as a friend. He was your mentor as an evangelist. You are today doing what he did. You're doing gigantic crusades in And stadiums, obviously not recently because the weird shut down, but it's It's just I'm I'm in. I'm in all of it, because, as you just said, there's nobody like him. There's there's this. There was nobody like him. He was a unique figure in the 20th century. Really Watson and you know, speaking of having dinner with them. I had lunch with him once he was doing one of his crusades and we went to the Red Lobster. Where is Billy would have said the red lob stop. You know a lot, but So we're sitting there and you know Billy in the ball cap on And here's the funny thing..

It's called small acts, and it's the work of the British director Steve McQueen. New Yorkers. Richard Brodie was just blown away by small acts, and he spoke with Steve McQueen recently. Here's Richard. Steve McQueen is the director of for feature films, Hunger, Shame and widows and is best known as the director of the hospital winning 12 years of slaves. Do I upset the master and the mistress? You care less about my loss and their well being before there's a decent man slaver. Under the circumstances, the circumstances he is a slaver. Where you from Platt, his boot You luxuriate in his face. Steve McQueen's new project is called small Acts. It's on the BBC in the UK and Amazon here, but it's not actually a TV series. Rather, it's a collection of five separate feature films, each of which deals with a different aspect of the lives of West Indian people in London from the late 19 sixties through the 19 eighties. He's on new men, new types of human beings, which is in them that ought to be phone all the traditional virtues of the English nation not indicate They inefficient society, But in full flower, Rita because these men have had you had this in mind from the very start of your career as a feature film maker, at what point did this project Crystallized for you, 2000 and 8 4009 Way least that I knew that at some point after well after sort of come to this point, But I wasn't ready yet because it was fair. Basically about be honest with you. You know, you need that distance in time and space to be brave delve into them because they're so close. Queen himself grew up in the West Indian community in London and from the very beginning of the small act Serious, which is to say from the first moments of the first film Mangrove. It's obvious that small acts is a work of great personal urgency and of love. The Queen is now in his fifties. But he's been a film and video maker for more than 20 years, and it's as if he's been waiting his entire career to tell the stories in small acts. Some of the stories in the series air drawn from history. Some, he imagines and others emerged from his personal experience. One of the films in the series. Education is derived from the Queen's own experience as a student in London, and in particular from the racial bias that he both experienced, then observed there on Friday didn't do anything all day. Nothing teacher came to the classroom after somebody for about 10 seconds. We just stop all morning doing nothing coming out of bed. But the other Children, they make animal noises so boring. We say Lost. It was boring. Yeah, but this isn't even a school snow off. The teachers don't teach you anything you do chatting about. I'll explain. Basically, there were the schools called the Education subnormal schools. Which were created in the late sixties early seventies on these workers of house people who they thought obviously couldn't cope with school, and a lot of those Children were off.

"Who don't know about this Syriza quick primer on what Steve McQueen is doing here and then and then describe what lovers rock. Then describe what lovers rock this installment is. Well, this is, as you said, it's one of five films of various lengths. Some of them are short some of the full two hour length films in an anthology called Small Acts, which McQueen took from Saying from a Bob Marley song. If you're the big tree, we are the small ax. So they actually not X? No, A C T s. It's access is correct. Taxi! Yes, So Lovers Rock is the second film in the series. It's on Amazon Prime this week and its title. Comes from a genre regular music that emphasized romance. The film itself takes place almost entirely at a House party. And the partiers are Jamaican Caribbean immigrants and, in some cases, the UK born Children of Caribbean people. If there's a main character followed that to be a young woman named Martha, played by newcomer Amara J. ST Open. In her very first film. She's wonderful here, by the way, so you know, watch out for her in the future. The plot is just the party. It's music and dancing and singing and embracing and hands on hips and butts, and there's intimacy and moodiness and missed connections and come ons and brush it off and flirting. Danger. But the through line is largely a story of pleasure and joy found in music, and it's so beautiful. And so much, eh, so much fun in such such pleasure to watch an experience. These films are all set in London's West Indian community and this one in particular, I've seen three of the five small acts ones, and this one is probably the least sort of plot driven necessarily, but as a sort of object example of House cinema can capture the senses. You know you feel like you are in that room and you are smelling the cigarette smoke, and you can feel the heat of people you know, dancing the other of the walls themselves or dripping condensation. I'll tell you, you know, even if I hadn't spent the last eight or nine months stuck in my apartment. Like it's an overwhelming sensation of Oh, yeah, This is what this is like. This is the sense of community this sense of of interaction and what's great is it's one of those movies where they have cast such distinctive faces. And they have cost two costumed everyone so distinctively that you don't have to have a lot of exposition, introducing characters explaining characters you see them and you remember them and you know who they are, and you follow them through the film. There's a great moment early on where you know the beginning of any dance. Nobody wants to be the first one on the floor, every sort of hugging the wall and staring at each other. And then the DJ puts on kung fu fighting and then you know, come on. You can't e think this sounds like the perfect antidote to our hopefully socially distance where I should say, physically distance Thanksgiving like we can just Live vicariously through this movie and No, just file it away for after the vaccine is here. We can do it in person. Yeah, it's the best party I've been to in 2020. Yeah, it Z warm and inviting and intimate And it takes you in even if you are on outsider like me. Okay.

Beastie Boys Made a Movie. We Made a Beastie Boys Podcast.

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this. Is the big picture a conversation? Show about Beastie Boys. That's right beastie. Boys made a movie beastie boys story which is directed by Spike Jones and available to watch right now on apple. Tv plus. If you're like me and worship Beastie boys you need to watch this movie later in the show. I'll be talking to add rock. And like diaw Beastie boys about their movie history their favorite fruits. How they're doing in quarantine. The New York Knicks documentaries that they want to see a bunch of other stuff as I tried to keep them focused on our conversation. A really love these guys beastie. Boys are my favorite band ever and it isn't even really close so to talk about them before we get to them. I asked the VIC Ferrari to my Alessandro Allegra. Join me it's Chris Ryan. Hi Chris. I've always seen myself more as a Nathan Wind Guy. I've been waiting my whole life to do this. Podcast so let's go. I'm very glad you're here with me. I can't think of anybody else. I'd WanNa have here other than you. Except maybe Mike the Inadequacy and they're coming later. So when I say beastie boys what's the first thing that pops in your head Chris? Probably the invention of cool so I think one thing that we've talked about a lot over the last twelve to eighteen months. We've had a lot of Quentin Tarantino podcasts. We've we celebrated a lot of his movies on the watchable. We talked about them on. Big Picture Podcast with him and something that comes up. Ally is kind of how he gave us a vocabulary or language to through which to understand culture and understand the world and I think the Beastie boys are equally responsible for that in both of our lives in terms of introducing us to so much music and so much other culture that wound up becoming just part of our like way in which we relate to the rest of the world through these like Kung Fu and exploitation movies through rap Reggae punk rock weird funk like all like it just basically made collectors and fans out of out of us at the risk of stepping on music exists. I wanted to ask you why you think you. And I to some extent to are so interested in figures who are all about basically like recombinant culture. You know who take all the disparate parts of stuff that they love and smash it all together because that is the thing that the movie and then returning to all of this music that I listened to over and over and over and over again in my life that I have thought about is like wow they really just jammed all the stuff they liked together to make something new like. What is it about that? The second part of what you said is the most important thing. Do you think about the people that we really respond to. Wu Tang clan quitting Tarantino. Beastie boys it means we're very basic very and B. It's the most important part is finding the second thing the thing that you're GonNa make out of all this shit. And that's what makes me so excited is when someone uses all these postmodern tools in these reconstructs. All these things out of this of Cultural Ephemera to say something else. Wootten Klan took all those Kung Fu movies and took all those samples but made something that could only have been made in Staten Island. You know back could only have made the music. He made with the experience that he had. And the Beastie boys could only have been the beastie boys by combining bad brains with run DMC. Yeah and I feel like it's not a mistake that so much of what we do at the ringer and so much of what you and I have been trying to do in. Our lives is basically celebrate and be enthusiastic about the things that we care about and I feel like these artists are the same way if you if you think about Beastie boys and you even look at the way they tell their story in the movie. It's just we really liked was the clash and grandmaster flash and Cheech and Chong and we were trying to find a way to make all those things make sense together and I feel the same way about what we do every day I feel about you and I love the NBA and we love Top Gun and we love. I love deb's I don't know how you feel Dad's but You know just trying to find a way to make all those things fit together so I feel like I have aped and tried to copy a lot of what those guys do. And I feel like a kinship to their their mission their creative project. Absolutely I mean like you and I don't mean to make it sound like you. And I are the Beastie boys here but you know. I think that we use the Internet the way other people would use a sampler right and we draw in all these different media. We'd take youtube videos. We take a picture and I think it was probably more the case before we started working professionally together in an editorial capacity but we would have like tumblers and blog spots and you were just kind of like throw a picture Steve McQueen up in an article you were writing about those face and it would have some sort of relationship and I think that that was our way of continuing along this tradition of mixing and matching different pieces of culture to say something about yourself. The thing that you said that I think is probably one of the most important parts of the movie that will nocco very remarked upon because a lot of it is going to be spent talking about. Yok and it should be because this is very much I think an image to him in a real moving tribute to their friend but when Mike D says in the beginning of the movie that he was just this weird kid who found the clash. Not only is that like. That's the origin story for a lot of people. Who like they find that one band? Whether it's the dead or the clash or you know run DMC. Whoever it is that makes them think that they are now. All of not alone in the world the clashes like a really really important. Template for the Beastie boys because they are basically A Crossroads Group A marketplace. At Crossroads Group. It's where all these different cultures are coming. And they're setting up their wares and you can pick and choose off these tables and then you go home and you make something out of it. And that's what the clash did too. I mean you can make a lot of arguments about appropriation. And whether or not the people who the clash were taken from or or paying homage to properly compensated for the work that they did And the same thing could go. For the Beastie boys but I think a lot more people know about Lee Perry. Because of the Beastie boys did not you know and and that's like a really really important act in culture. Everything is about timing too I think about when they hit the scene and who they were working with and on the one hand I guess there's an appropriation question. I think they've moved past that so effectively because they were just literally there with Russell. Simmons and Rick Rubin and run DMC making music together and they were a part of something that was essentially punk at the end of its first true like lightning rod phase at the end of the day and and rapid the Dawn. You know I mean. They weren't there necessarily in in the parks in the south. Bronx but you know one thousand nine hundred. Eighty three played on the radio. Yeah Yes yes. And there's that great moment in the movie where Africa is asked about cookie. Post by one of the members of the Beastie boys and you can see like they're they're they're they're in the moment and they're going to dense area and you know performing for white people introducing them to wrap it away and that couldn't have happened if they if it was just five years earlier five years later. The same is true for the class. You know it's like they arrived at a time when the world was ready to hear rock and try to play reggae. And what that means for the future reggae. There's something also about this specific approach to the world though that jumps out to me. Which is it's not. Just this is what we like. It's this is what we like and I don't care if you don't like it and I don't I actually don't care if you don't get it because when I think about the things that I knew when I first heard the band it was you could fit it inside of a very small box. I just did my cultural reference points. The music that I knew about the the records the comedy everything that they were throwing in. I wouldn't say that I discovered them because they were sampled for three seconds on a on a record on policy boutique but they were a window. You know I had never heard of Sadaharu. Oh until I heard the beastie boys rap about him you know like there's so much in their music the sampling the lyric writing even if it is in their songs are very rarely like high minded. They're not necessarily pursuits of big ideas. But they put big ideas in front of you. Just by dint of what they were interested in and I I liked that kind of take it or leave it quality they bring to it and I feel like that really comes out in the movie too. Don't you think yeah? It's only a couple of people are lucky enough to have other people care about the thing that they care about. You know you can. You can play the game and you can try. Ride the wave of what's popular at any given moment. But it's so weird because what the beastie boys did especially once they move to La. I think wound up having such an incredibly profound formative effect on all the culture that comes after it but it so it winds up being underrated as as to what a zag that was how crazy it was for those guys to be like. Yeah we'RE GONNA LEAVE NEW YORK. We're GONNA leave behind rapper. We're going to go to capitol from Def Jam. And we're GONNA work with these two producers that basically no one's ever heard of an assemble these like really out there incongruous samples to build together a new sound that we're gonNA use to define us for the next couple of decades. The only thing I wanted to talk about because I think is probably also a reason why you and I like them. Much is that and this comes across very much in the movie much

"You have to kind of uncover it. You have to pick it apart. So saying he doesn't have an avert agenda is it is nonetheless possible to say that there are recurrent things which fired his imagination as a as a filmmaker i And i think we've touched on them. I think certainly you know that the that history history of the slave trade. What paul gilroy refers to as the black atlantic of the incarceration oppression and violence downto- to the body. I think those are very much there and of course that's twelve years. A slave is is the most obvious example of that. But i think also the ideas you know both the extreme of of bodily sensation. You know everything from. I said the early the two figures wrestling where you feel the tension the weight of the body sweat coming off the bodies the way in which one is trying to you know sort of throw the other one that sort of sense of interlock figures you get it with the touch of show rambling on the You get it with the The physicality of western deep. I mean you even get it in the you know the sort of something. Well of course in the one of of marcus who shoots his brother where you'll faced with this skull. This recumbent figure where the camera is placed shooting directly onto the the skull which is the head which is filling the screen with the skull. Going across it. you're constantly thinking. How did that happen what. What was the pain that was involved in doing that. How did he come out of it. Life how do i relate this to. The story is being told about the accidental. You know act that ends ends alive. So i think yes i mean. There are definite themes or a definite tropes definite images almost repeat but i think the body in pain the body of the body and pleasure of central to to his practice. Do you think that that steve mcqueen himself makes no distinction between his more mainstream cinema. And the films that you see in galleries. Does he see it as all of a piece. Or how does how do you know. He would characterize these different modes that he works. And because it's clear from what you're saying the recurrent themes and approaches in in. Both i think from you know from looking at the work. I don't think it's a complete disconnect in any means. I don't think it's a matter of saying okay. You know use project of making a hollywood movie. And that's what i'm gonna be alright and then now you know got an exhibition coming up. I'm gonna make three films. I think is like that tool. An i think so i would imagine An one could probably if you really studied the where you could see how the experience of mainstream cinema benfica's back into the making of this film. It's a two way process. I mean any kind of practices. The same person doing it. I think that also they're very different kinds of activities. You know an artist films. Even you know kind of quite big budget films. I someone thinks if somebody like bill viola. You know doing some some of his films. It's mostly a person with a camera and.

"I taught in the piece about his very confess phenomena logical filmmaker that he's very interested in the tactility of seeing and you get that particularly western deep because when it's blown up from you know super eight to the large screen then you'll very also aware the pixel ation and you have to strain really both in terms of sound in terms of vision to kind of make out what's happening. These murky figures kind of emerging out out of the darkness. And the way in which the the soundtrack subtly goes silent as they stagger around and they stop again. So you you you know you do identify. Think very powerfully with the claustrophobia. The experience of going down you know over two miles in this cage to work the coal face to extract the oil. You know. I almost sort of felt your hands. Switching the hinge of seeing too. Because you're sort of on the edge of your seat looking looking at the the the image and it's yes i mean. It is a body experience as well as you know a a sort of the visual experience and again you've got bodies of mainly black men in a precarious place play an environment. Which is which is threatening which is hostile to them. Yes it's a place of restraint you know they They are entrapped in that. And the course behind. It is the whole complex. History of colonialism sexually goes to wise people do certain jobs and new though i mean in a way that's why i think he doesn't have an agenda. I mean i think an artist who was more interested in you know the kind of in the old various political message would have gone into that mall whereas i think with mcqueen to some extent you have to work it. You have to work to get the movie to get the to get the narrative but you also in a way to work through the different layers rule there because they're in in the narrative there in the missiles and van in the different component parts of the image at anyone sort of moment on the screen..

"Was quite surprised at that that even even quite early on in his career. I had always seen the use of film in the art gallery. It's been quite a sort of separate demane from the making of feature films. And perhaps i was my perception but to hear him. Enunciate that rather surprised me. Well i think in a way significant that he did say that. And i think significant that he's one of the very few to filmmakers who has made that step through into mainstream cinema. I'll use of film and video is quite different to filmmakers where different aspects oh the kind of materiality of film i mean has it to. Dean is another artist. I guess who comes to mind Who i think in some respects is similar to stephen her interest in the materiality of film yes and the process but is somebody who i don't think will she hasn't really tried to step into mainstream cinema and i'm not sure she'd be that interested in doing it. I think. steve. I was probably offensive. You have a much bigger audience. It's a very different audience. Yes and i mean that suggests that he yeah that there was a strong desire on his part to reach an audience and beyond that to communicate a message that is pushing things too far to see him as having a sort of sense of of something he wants to get across to mainstream. I don't think is an artist with an agenda right And i think his film the narrative very much comes out of the process of working with the material to some extent. I mean obviously not entirely. Because if you do go into mainstream cinema then narrative is pretty importance. You know you need to engage in. Hold your vote for for you know a particular period of time but even those films i mean with with hunger the very very long sequence of bobby sands in the jail talking to the priest and ninety is all happening in a way and that seems to me that very much an artist take on the kind of almost like a soliloquy or two personnel was like conceptual art work. In fact. i think you get it a bit. In twelve years a slave as well the kind of interaction between the characters particularly in the kind of violence that goes on. There's almost a sense of what happens to bodies come together in a confrontation sure. Of course they are carefully scripted. And i don't think he's somebody light. I know ken loach somebody like that. Who who just you know. More or less allows actors to improvise. I think he's pretty tolerant torio in his role but it still you know if we create this.

"April twenty twenty podcast from on diplomatic. My name is george. Mela and my guest on this program is john bird who is an artist. Writer curator emeritus professor of art in critical theory at middlesex university and the apron edition of the paper john rights by the artist and filmmaker steve mcqueen who had a major retrospective at tate modern in london until the gallery was suddenly closed because of covid nineteen mcqueen who turned fifty last year had an immensely successful career by any measure since winning the turner prize in one. Thousand nine thousand nine for his early explorations of the moving image. He's gone on to direct four feature films the most recent widows and twenty eighteen and and twenty fourteen twelve years a slave for which he received the oscar for best picture becoming the first black recipient of that award but mcqueen has by no means abandoned the gallery for the movie theater as you'll hear and has his recent exhibition showed before we got onto that. I asked john to fill in some background about mcqueen's korea before the nine thousand nine hundred nine prize. He was an all student. He was a chelsea first of all chelsea school of art and then he went onto goldsmiths college university of london in the beginning of the nineteen nineties student at goldsmiths from ninety to ninety. Four as you know the goldsmiths is the school that is most closely say. Cat who became known as the y. b. as young british artists it produced quite of quite a few including damien. Hirst so he comes out of a background of officials practice. He became interested in photography and film and video work at school and that became his medium expression. I think for quite a lot about at that period of the early nineties late eighties and early early nineties. It wasn't just the film and video offered to some extent to come different way. Don't for a new way of working. It was a break with the more traditional pass activities of painting sculpting so. He did that. He had a brief period in new york. Where east of the university. But then he. He's interesting that he's work was picked up actually really quite early on. I mean i think not only when he was college but very soon afterwards in in the early nineties he was in a way noted as one of the most original most interesting students coming out of that that goes miss background and he started making black and white videos.

Opening Act - Rumors in Rock

"First false rumor. Did you ever hear the rumor about Keith? Moon driving a Rolls Royce into a hotel pool. I've heard a lot of stories about Keith. Moon well. He is the quintessential rock and roll guy and bad boy he definitely collected Nazi memorabilia. He may have bitten. Steve McQueen's Hog and blew up his drums win. The WHO played on the smothers brothers. Comedy Hour. I cannot wait to do his episode I am. I have like four books based on. Keith Moon I am. I am locked and loaded. I Love Keith. He is my soul. Well so those things may be true however there was a rumor that he drove a Rolls Royce into a pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint Michigan on his twenty. First Birthday. This is not true. According to Pete Townsend. The story is actually a combination of two different stories. That has become one not true rumor. So Keith Moon. In one of the stories like one of the incidents he left the Hamburg off of a car and it rolled into a pool which was under construction and to not have any water in hit home. Which would be worse though driving? Dr Into a pool with water or driving a car into a pool without water but he didn't drive the car into that. I'm just like either one either or I'm just saying like it just rolled in on its own. Which would do more damage I think you're pretty much screwed either way fair enough. The cars a loss of it goes near the pool. Yeah Okay and then so the second story that this was combined with to create the not true drove. Rolls Royce. Into a pool was that he charged new car to the band. Who refuse to pay for it. So Moon drove it into a muddy pond in his garden and call the dealer to come pick it up. So it's too true. Stories rolled into one story right. That's not true. Yeah Oh yeah. It's incredible and that's not our last Keith. Moon rumor either. Nope our next one which is true now okay. I should say with the caveat that these are true and false based on articles that we both read and so there might be room for error. So this is just like fun. Yeah it's just fun and it's inauguration. It's yeah just what we found. No one has photographic evidence. It's just fun fun so I hope you guys out. Don't get angry and you're like that never happened or that did happen bub-bubba so like don't don't get mad at us is just this is just meant to be fun and a little bit looser so and just for us to kind of talk off the cuff so Our next one. Which is true. Is All about Ozzy Osbourne. Oh my so ozzy. Osbourne achieved infamy overnight after incident on January twentieth nineteen eighty two in Des Moines Iowa during the height of his drug problem. That is putting it mildly. Ozzy Osbourne was performing when an audience member through a bat on stage. The singer believing that it was rubber and I do believe that he thought it was robbery. I don't think he would have. I believe that too. Yeah bid off its head as a stunt only to find out that the bat was real and alive not only that but as he declares in liner notes to the two thousand two reissue of diary of a madman. The Bat wound up biting him as well which forced him to be treated for rabies. The incident fed his rock madman legend along with the one time that he bit off the head of a dove which basically what happened was when he first met with Columbia records in Nineteen ninety-one. He took a live dub into the meeting with him and bit off the head in front of the horrified executives. Awful yeah so crazy man out. I wouldn't sign him to a record deal yeah. He was also arrested for urinating on. Or near the Alamo. And while on tour with Motley crue he allegedly got into a one upmanship. Dare contest with Nikki. Nikki six and I'm sorry that is at is a contest. I would never even get close to know but he ended up snorting a line of ants better than biting the heads off live animals. I think though no okay. The dove thing is kind of unforgivable. The bad thing is understandable. But you snorted a line of ants would if they were fire ants also. You just have ants in your sinuses now. I'm sad I read that. Oh my God you have to elaborate immediately regretted it I apologize. You should move on move on Thanksgiving on next all right. Here's a good one Kay cass. Elliot choke to death on a ham sandwich. Can We bury this now? Please yeah really not cool. I don't like this lie at all. This rumors terrible are you. Doing Mama Cass. Yes I am all right so this came up. Following a series of sold out gigs. In London Mama Cass retired to her apartment where she died of heart failure on July. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Seventy Four. A rumor spread very quickly that she died from choking on a ham sandwich which is just a horrible thing to say you know yes. She was a little overweight route. So it's believed that the rumor started when Dr Anthony. Greenberg the physician who I examined CASS. After her death wrote she appeared to have been eating a ham sandwich and drinking coca cola while lying down a very dangerous thing to do. She seemed to have choked on her ham sandwich. So so great job Dr Greenberg for that one. But point of fact her autopsy showed that a heart problem leading to heart. Failure was the cause of death not a sandwich or any other item lodged in her throat or trachea. She had actually had very little to eat the day before she died like her stomach was pretty clear. No dead I'm actually going to piggyback and double down on a Mama Cass and Keith Moon. True story with us. They were not but they did die in the same apartment. Yeah rockstars have been taken from US. Way Too young and it just so happens that two brilliant musicians died in the same apartment at the same age of thirty two Singer Harry Nilsson I love. That's my alarm. Every morning I wake up to his song. GotTa get out okay. If you've seen the show Russian dolls you'll know why I wake up to a song every day but He renounced his London flat to friends when he was traveling. And so on June twenty ninth nineteen seventy four Mama Cass of the Mamas. And the Papas was staying in the flat while she was on tour and died of heart failure in her sleep and on September seventh. Nineteen seventy eight Keith. Moon of the WHO overdosed on a sedative in that very same apartment which is eerie because they died in the same apartment under the same landlord at the same age. How crazy is that? That's a little

"I I'm so excited to be with my friend? David who is also a Steve McQueen Fan and I wrote a song about Steve McQueen. Do Not know we had this in comedy. I mean I I used to have a Mustang so it was director. I mean you I mean I can't call myself a Mustang owner if I I don't know the history of Steve McQueen I've got the visions you're talking about the movie the great escape when he's on the motorcycle child to go away and jumps the feds and gets tangled and once again doesn't make it out. It was actually his buddy but who did the stunt because insurance wouldn't let Steve do it lawyers happy on Papillon Great. Maybe we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA move now to <hes> some of your pros writing and <hes> we're going to start with a piece that <hes> that you've written David. That's a bit <hes> <hes> autobiographical here I suppose <hes> and you got the social justice ideas percolating through this this should be fun <hes> so give us a title and then <hes> and then read a little bit about yourself. This is how I got the Red State Blues a bibliography. I will say this. It was written in two thousand fourteen but to update it for today. I simply added one night and all will all recognize it. I'm sure how I got the Red State Blues. A bibliography everybody from one day to another has the Blues Albert King Your beliefs. I ain't like mine DB More Campbell mob lose since I'm a southern white guy what how a good would call light middle age you might think they'd be the tea party blues but I'm just not feeling that angst that need to defend traditional marriage and loving gay couples the voting booth from people of Color the state economy from hardworking emigrants willing to you do jobs no one else wants or the poor from nutrition education or portable healthcare. I'm feeling more and more alienated for many of my good conservative friends and neighbors blind my reading habits as early as fifth grade when Mrs Burns calling me reading treasure island during math time I was already doomed to never be a job creator in high school. I was a kid reading fire in the like in the female eunuch. The former inspired my endless. SATNAM WAR DEBATES WITH MR Hamilton in American history class and the latter titillated and terrified me by teaching career exposed me to rise. We're watching God things fall apart the handmaid's tale invisible man the poison awesome would bible when students told me they had trouble with the idiom of their eyes were watching God. I would smile to myself for the first time I met Janey walking back into town at the beginning of the novel like she had Grapefruit Center hip pockets with great rope of black hair swinging to her waist and unraveling in the wind like a balloon Janey and company used expressions. I've never seen in print before but it often hard as a teenager working in the farm fields of eastern North Carolina yet Janey strained mom understanding in a different way she started not just memories of adolescent longing not just admiration but also pitying something like fear Janey grew to Roy status in my eyes she pulled me into a broader and deeper understanding of the human condition my bad reading habits got worse. When I retired from teaching I had time to read the unabridged les miserables and Meals Zola's germinal the U._S._A.? Trilogy as Zarni Feces Reading Lolita Theron and worst of all the brief wondrous life of Oscar while I suppose could blame my friend Ron. He introduced me to the Work Reginald. Dwayne bets invited me to go here. Sherman Alexi speak volumes of Jimmy Santiago Baucus poetry. It's his fault. I've read see trying and thirteen Mexicans a place to stand the lone ranger and Tanto Fist Biden Heaven Shaheed his own Paul Lately. It's all come to ahead reading victor. Hugo makes it hard to see the one and a half million people who qualify for food stance in this state deadbeats reading Sola makes it impossible to disregard the human cost of fracking or the wider implications of coal ash bill the Dan River reading does Passos informed my view of the occupy movement colored my perspective on Mitt Romney and his comments about the forty seven percent and has made it impossible for me you to Trust Bank of America or the coastal developers who are trying to ride climate change denial into law reading the V._C.. Made me remember Atwood also made it very difficult to see the difference between the rule imposed by Islamic fundamentalists abroad and the social agenda Christian fundamentalists in our society particularly with regard women when Paul Vallone the head of the gun rights group grassroots North Carolina ridicules concerns about juvenile gun deaths in this country free because as he carefully explains the majority of gun violence victims or black male teenagers I cannot dismiss them as easily where he sees the faces of thugs on our streets at our parks I see Trayvon Martin <hes> Reginald Dwayne bets and Oscar while my friend Ron were poor in Georgia and he learned how Bologna had to be sliced before it was fried. Sherman Alexi did on the reservation Alexi calls FRY Baloney and one of the bonds poor people whatever their ethnicity I share a pride Bologna and salmon cakes growing up and so I feel some sort of bond with Jamie Crawford and Thomas builds the fire and believe it or not with Oscar Oscar Oscar a search essential humanity of everyone trying to grow up to find his or her way to live fulfilled life in urban America or anywhere else in the post Colombian post colonial post Cold War world like union senior. I'll look at his brief life with well. Wonder I want to be a spiritless as Oscar while I get what Reginald going bets means when he says not to write about being white. I don't WanNa ride about being white or black red or balloon. The one percent of the ninety nine percent or which immigrants have somehow acquired the right to close the country they took from indigenous people to newer immigrants. I WanNa ride and talk about givers and takers those who embrace and those who fear those who think they must defend what they have and those who realized they must share it my status Gig these days is taking care of my great nephew while his mother teaches middle school mathematics I play a a lot of music born Taj Mahal Rigoletto of the ramones and Albert King. He's only nine months old but soon I'll start teaching him my blues right now. I'm reading Isabel Allende's the house of the spirits in which the old man Pedro Garcia tells his grandson Pedro Terceira the story of the hands who joined forces to confront the Fox. My great nephew is too young to share Allende's novel or to read Treasure Island or question of freedom but already I can read him some of the poems and soon to begin preparing him for the Pinochet's and Trujillo's and trump's of this world. I'll read him monroe lease the story of Ferdinand. Maybe I'll read tournaments Spanish all right David how I got the Red State Blues. I WANNA focus a minute on your opening passage. Which I think speaks too much in what's happening in the world today and I think it's sort of alienation affiliation affiliation <hes> was it? The people are defending others on facebook and in person simply because they have different political beliefs. I'm glad you ask that question. Landis I think that's because people do not have the face-to-face contact and you may have to stop me before I go on a roll here but when people do not communicate face to face with their neighbors neighbors when they're not involved in local things when a person is somebody that they can just <hes> right hateful comment about on social media just makes it too easy <hes> for them to not consider consider how much they have in common and I love the way that you blame this entire problem. When you're reading habits <hes> that is you can find a lot of the answers you know in books in an essays and yet <hes> people aren't reading as much these days are they? They are not in there and they're losing so much in every author that I mentioned in the pace and every book and that's just a personal slice the things that affected a lot <hes> a hurt Sherman Licey read at a Lenore Iran in the visiting rider series there and he talked about having a conversation with the cabdriver that drove him from the airport and that cabdriver ask Sherman Alexi. Why is there a war on poor people in this world? What have we done to deserve this and he was serious and it wasn't even a political statement? It was a <hes> just a comment on how he failed in the a Frog Baloney. Comment makes perfect sense <hes> my friend Ron and I talked about it that that it was this the fact that people who are poor have so much in common and yet are divided against each other. The fraud blowing is pretty good I when I when I got out not to get a school and I was trying to find a job didn't have any money live with somebody. We brought up some Baloney but we got this packages already sliced cheap kind but <hes> so <hes>. What do you think this piece added? It relate to you. It reminds me of not to talk politics with my family in New York and it is true. I mean I posted a political post host. When Jim Acosta was accosted November ninth and the White House briefing room and as a kid I looked up too aggressive reporters like Sam Donaldson and the more I found out about Jim Acosta Pasta? We both grew up in Annandale Virginia. Where a year apart in age he went to James Madison University? I went to Virginia Tech and I felt this kinship with him. I said to myself okay. I usually don't post political things but to me this this is you know being robbed of your voice and he's doing his job and a whole bunch of other things and I put it out there. I I got some support but a lot of meanness from people who said you're wrong. He it was being mean. He's a bad reporter. He's he's awful. He's he's he tells lies and I could relate very much to David just said I said I and one of those folks was my handyman. I said don't want making any ban pack in my house and I I wrote. I know what you're talking. I wrote a piece that appeared in the observer called fence or freeway and it was about the number of people know this but the history and Shaw there's a cemetery and these separate the black side of the cemetery African American from the white even used a fence. It must have been afraid that the spirits we're going to mingle and they can get over the fence somehow but <hes> it <hes> AH got some feedback on there that it was a great story until you got political at the end <hes> but anyway one thing about your piece. David is that <hes> in one respect. There's someone could talk about this being political in nature but yet humanity and kindness and embracing others shouldn't really have political sides and part of which I think you're trying to do here is get people to recognize that we don't need to talk about the other as much as when you talk about what we need to do for others. Am I getting close in Dave and just the idea that when I mentioned these stories it's because these are characters pitchers in fiction who became live in people that you identified with and you cared about their situation and we don't listen to each other stories we make assumptions and when we don't do that when when we contact each each other as people then everything becomes banner that has to happen around kitchen tables and then <hes> places where people gather face to face not just anonymously yeah and then at the end somebody might be reading long really enjoying it in your last line says well. Maybe I'll read it to him in Spanish and then someone with some opinions going to send a women the language here as English. You've got this. We're American. Ah You know so nice little ending their David patient yeah <hes> so. Did you get some <hes> things off your chest by writing. This little piece here did help it did ed but also luckily for it to work if it does work because I got past that because that's the thing in a nutshell we've gotta get past getting stuff off our chest and we've got to figure out what we have to share that other people might relate to so that's one of the lessons right exactly okay well David. We're going to segue here into something that <hes> I dunno also. We asked her family would they tell me that you are obsessed with Donald Party. Ask Okay so well. It's nothing to be sick of because <hes> we want our listeners to get introduced to it right already. No one thing for sure like well. We already knew she was weird. Although so it's an interesting store and we're we're gonNA have you do. There's necessarily that you've written this been published and the anthology exploration that right and it's <hes> you're gonna read just a couple of paragraphs from this and then we're going to <hes> take a break and you're going.
