"And everything that you purchase has to be for you. The past is what's known as a vertically integrated facility. Michaela also had to explain that to me. So it just means that we manufacture our own products and then we sell them out our door. So a lot of the things that you'll buy in the dispensary are made right out back or grown right out back and then they're processed by our team and then they're put out for sale and sold by our team. When you're talking about growing manufacturing and selling a relatively new product though, you're also talking about jobs, and this company has provided lots of them. I know we just purchased our third facility. It's going to be a processing and packaging facility. So yeah, that new facility will start out about adding 30 full-time jobs.

And when you go into our retail shop here, it's not uncommon to have the four stations taken up by people in their 70s.

And we want to go to tanglewood and fortunately today go to the distillery down the road or whatever it may be, but the traffic and the tourism has definitely benefited.

"On the film started as a concept album by sparks. And that made so much sense to me because the songs are not just the backbone. You hear us. They aren't a regular musical right. There's where the songs are supported by an infrastructure of you know talking there the entire body of this thing not just the backbone but the fleshy lumpy body as an opera. This is a rock opera. As you mentioned which means as bombastic as opera can be this is even more. This is melodramatic is over the top of the top. This is meatloaf this totally totally paradise by the dashboard. Light l. a. Edition a lot of android lloyd-webber getting which you're saying phantom romance. It's about fame. It's about oral sex. It's about murder. It's about ghosts about pumping babies and the director has said the reason for the puppet baby or at least one major reason for the puppet baby is because the kid has to grow up a little bit. He didn't have to work with a bunch of different kids. And i think we could both relate to their. I like that. I think that's a great reason and i also i gotta say the puppet was created as all but it did contribute to the creepy overall of the film. So that works for me. I liked it. Even though it also made me unsettled for the last like our or however long that puppet is onscreen. Yeah and i agree with you. That as the focus of the film turns to him it becomes less compelling and there's a lot of stuff here that is you know kind of floating at the edge of logical understanding like. Why would the world be enraptured. By the romance between an opera singer and a comedian. It's so confusing then. Wouldn't puppets there's ghosts. There's i mean it's way down on the list of stuff at basildon strains logical understanding. Henry does get this facial marking that. I didn't quite follow it. Grows as the movie goes on. And there's a moment when a character dies and comes back in this amazing costume with shoulder pads like horns. And you're like why is there any reason for that. Besides it looking cool and does there need to be. I would answer notable those questions. I was here for it completely. Do you think it's trying to say anything. Meaningful or thoughtful about the concept of fame and the connection to art. I got a lot of sense of that especially one of my favorite touches of the film. Were these interstitial 's From showbiz news which is like the speak sort of Entertainment tonight type of tv program where they are reporting and this is how we get updates of their relationship between moran coltie yard and adam drivers characters so you know one point. They'll be like oh they're so happy together and then another point. Well there's a baby coming who's going to and again. The tax is tax stacks. There's a baby coming which means their lives. We're going to be completely upended like those sorts of things. I thought are really fun but then towards the end of it. I'm just like okay. Get were going here. But is this just a vibe or are there actual is their connective tissue here to something bigger that they might be trying to get at well. I think it's development as a concept album. I explains why we get explained things that we also see on screen like the songs were originally pitched. Where originally conceived as all you'd get about this story so everything has to be conveyed through the songs and then when you add visuals over top of them even gorgeous. Very lush visuals like this. They can't help. But feel like underlining what's already in the song and so yeah. I think it could have incorporated that a little bit better but there is no connective tissue between the songs here. Because it's all songs. So there's there's not moments there are moments of silence where he lets visuals. Do some work. But mostly it's about the music explaining what you're seeing and so that can feel a little overwhelming. And maybe this is my brain being like okay but what does this mean but i did feel as though there's there was some commentary going on there. They didn't fully understand and one of his things is just like. Oh i wanna kill people on stage. I want to i want to disarm them. At one point he says something like being a communities the only way to tell the truth without getting killed and like oh man. This is like a commentary on cancel culture. I'm having flashbacks to lake louis. Chapelle and all these. And i. I guess i came away with it being like. I wonder if laos cracks in sparks. Understand what comedy is like the way in which we interact with comedy. But maybe that's not the point. No i mean. I think what you've isolated to through here which is that. This is a commentary on comedy. People who aren't comedians The interstitial is about like the news. Entertainment news are by people who don't understand what entertainment news is four. Or whether it does what function it as it's it's a critique that doesn't go very deep it's a critique of something so if you see it as a critique of if you expect it to be a critique of something it doesn't hold a lot of water but if it's a poop crazy musical where people sing and Crazy things happen. Which is how i'm taking it. It hits the spot. Yeah no i think that's a great way of like trying to decide if you're on the fence about whether to see it i do think it's a type of movie where it's your either all in or you're not although i was in for the first maybe twenty twenty five minutes and then i was kind of out of it so maybe that's not the best to sell it but i think there's enough here to grasp on and i'm glad i saw that like i would recommend it to a lot of people not everyone but i think that if you are into either rock operas or very very weird rock operas and creators who were just throwing things at the wall and seeing where they stick in ways that feel very very fresh different gopher it i mean but i do think you know one of the things i find interesting is that i feel like. We're kind of in a mini renaissance of the musical in general. It just seems like this is the avenue a lot of creators or kind of taking now in a way that we hadn't necessarily seem in the last ten fifteen years. You have this our beloved sh- mega doom which you and i both our show like central park The apple plus tv show. There's this all these interesting ways in which people are playing with musicals. And i i appreciate that we have this one really really really weird one amidst the bunch and i'd be curious to see more really weird ones take off as well i agree. It's a big swing. Big thing i feel like it's just the big lake launching the javelin something bigger than swaying. Just make sure yes. It's a big shot.

It's fun and you know we all see it all the time we in on the joke and we get it. You say that too much i that could. I don't have any science to back this up but that could possibly push some people away. I think families possibly though they were similar in that they both sold themselves on their soundtracks. I mean there wasn't anything like queen. You know marketing. The suicide squad. They number recognizable songs. That's part of james guns kind of schick for quite some time. He's on that probably since guards the galaxy. I think that guardians. And i think that Suicide squad had more recognizable. I agree with that. You know that that dirty work song from From from what do you call it. A steely dan That's not a popular with people. Don't really know you gotta know that. It's a great themes on the go with it but but yeah no no no one just not in the same levels marketing. Yeah no-one no-one no-one that song. I mean like i said if you have fantasy dan then yeah you do know it. Those other songs popular at karaoke everybody knows them Okay yeah yeah in in the sonnet. They sold at teaser with That's not a big song. Song is great but those those aren't big recognizable songs. I don't think. I don't think the song soul this one But also you know this whole thing with them at the time. Listen you might. You might like these movies. You might think these movies are bad but it was still at the time when dc was trying to make an universe. yeah it felt. Like everything was connected. you know even though batman v. superman man. Might you know everybody thinks it sucks now. It's awful yet but now no let's let's but you know when when the with this movie here. They thought that this would be the one to turn it around. Well not even this one with. I believe with the suicide squad at the time. Yeah that's what i was. Yeah suicide squad at the time. Suicide squad was it was pitched being. Funnier is not as dark. This is something that's going to be the one to turn 'cause you're right. That's what everybody said. Everybody saw this is how you do it right here. David done man. Everybody thought that this is going to be two. Want to connect everything and turn it all around and people walked out going. Wow i so wrong about that man. These see dealers over here. She has done batman and superman way. Man let let let the man who could clown many things. Yeah But you know those movies also look. You might not be crazy about batman. V superman but you know you know batman. Yeah you know. Super measure and those movies are recognizable character. Even this sarah's lex luther right here but those are recognizable characters and everyone who went to see these movies. It was mostly out of curiosity to see how all these characters that we know get together and then and then the suicide squad that that that's a bonus right there. He considered it also with a suicide squad. That is the first one right. So yeah there was the hint of like batman and joker gonna show. that's true. Yeah the big. Your big villain is the joker batman in the marketing too. I mean look. Everyone hates them. At least this version of the joker. Everyone hates the suicide squad joker but he was a main draw. You know it brings up a point where people were curious to see what they would do with that character. You know people want to see what they do with a gangsta. Chiloe has joking manage it. I don't like the look right now. That stupid but i wanna see what he does You know an and the biggest thing was it was it was different. I sweet talking fuss. I think you you kill me now this you anymore. Christ real job you run a whole crime syndicate white people working on us white was crazy motherfucker doing anything Also you curious. To what will smith would do in the movie like i say. Listen there you know people can wait to see. Will smith tanglewood batman and superman short sonia. Sure yeah no you put it out all on paper okay. New take on. The joker will smith. I know who he is. Been seeing harlequin quinn's ass. Yeah yeah yeah Batman supposed to show up.

It was something where a lot of people is. Just a lot of people that you weren't if you weren't wanted to percent like down to watch it and you you know you weren't excited than you would least curious about is your when you're gonna say i'm sorry. No no i agree. So let's see in my second point. So where i say there was just not as much in there was more interest in the In suicide squad. Two thousand sixteen than these suicide squad. There was not as much interest for this movie after that. You know that this goes back to the bad marketing. That was talking about with the and the in my first point you know this is. This is confusing people. At this point people know what to make these things anymore because what they're doing is at this point. Dc's trying to have it both ways especially with the suicide squad situation you know they wanna be attached to the first films money..

And we have a house there that has taken it upon themselves to grow A, uh, sunflower. Pretty much a sunflower forest. Really? They have grown it on the parkway. They've grown it in their front yard. Now the residents along that area, love it. They love it. They think it looks wonderful. And the problem is at this intersection is blocking, uh, the eye line, the being able to see oncoming traffic. You're talking about the sunflower? Yeah. Okay. I'm sorry. I can't. I can't get past this. Yeah, because you keep bringing this up. It's a big deal to you. This is they apparently do have an H l A.

They should take it down. I got it. But if all the neighbors don't mind it Is that okay? I mean, there is a safety issue out of it if they're happy with it, fine, But at the very least, don't don't put my life at risk if I'm driving through there because I can't see oncoming traffic. Don't do that. Don't you love your damn sunflower? Maybe don't drive. I know some flowers just represent happiness, Brightness, The ship optimism.

We <Speech_Male> always try to send <Speech_Male> and issue will <Speech_Male> be no exception and probably <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> message will be sent a <Speech_Male> little more strongly. <Silence> Is that <Speech_Male> what we celebrate <Speech_Male> on. The fourth <Speech_Male> of july <Speech_Male> is an ideal. <Speech_Male> It's a dream. <Speech_Male> It's something that <Speech_Male> was set into motion <Speech_Male> on the fourth <Speech_Male> of july.

And tanglewood i live show since the pandemic we checked in with keith as he was preparing for the performance and i started by asking him how he's doing and whether he'd been right about last week that's approved to be pressured because indeed. I was crying in my beer for both of the fourth of july. I did spend it with some friends up in new hampshire and tried really hard not to think about how it spent the last twenty five of them. I'm doing okay. I mean as you know. It's been a extremely difficult year for performing artists. Not not only in practical matters like of you know employment but also dispiritedly because you know what we're all about as engaging with audiences and it's been well-nigh impossible even with you know all the brittle efforts we've made. There's still nothing like actually being able to connect with people live on the other hand. It's a upbeat kind of time. Because we're seeing things changing slower than i've liked to be but nonetheless. They seem to be going direction. So i do want to focus on that for just another minute for folks who aren't in the performing arts how would you characterize what was lost over the last fifteen sixteen months for you and your musicians well for us. It was the ability to do what we do. I mean are the basis of our profession. Our professional lives are our employment on top of that also..

Different Cultures explained how the world came to be. We were saying is is Genesis a terrible myth? Is it all about guilt and shame and other better ones, and so started to talk about you know the Greek origin myths, and then went back to to the you know out of chaos, and or an Austin guy on I'm started staring at me and said go on. I said well. You know and then I. Get the next generation was talking. Know about Kronos and and then the birth of Zeus. New Game Wow. How'd you oldest I supervised? Creek myths and a lot of them were very far more diligent to nine and probably better read, but they just they knew the names. Everyone knows the names use in Paulo, and and and so on, but they hadn't joined the dots. And, it's a miraculous thing about Greek mythology that there is a timeline in chronology knits probably be reverse engineered by.

Go back to some of the sources the time remember burn and find out and fill in the gaps in my knowledge that I started writing. Did that Mobile Library play a part in your early reading of the Greek myth says well, yes, it did and firmly enough it was American, mythologised, who were the biggest infants so me when I was young apart from Robert Graves who was hugely influential. Who wrote a magnificent two volume edition of agreements, but when I was younger and too young, for Robert Graves, it was Hamilton and Bernadette, Flynn and bull finch copy of Dolphins, which is American I think. Isn't it the both with? And Anthony Hoffman whom I remember well reading those when I was very young, had big illustrated version of Nathaniel.
