Our Biggest Problem Isn't the Left, It's the Invertebrates in the GOP

"I want to talk about some of the interne sine fighting that's going on right now inside the Republican Party. Not so much to take sides about it or in it, but rather to show a way to try and send it. So there's been a series of tapes that have come out that show Kevin McCarthy, a bashing other members. Well, of the GOP, specifically Matt Gaetz, but also Brooks, mo Brooks. And this is evidently because Gates and Brooks are seen as taking Trump's side on the election and moreover, their comments about January 6th. And here's Kevin McCarthy. Speaking, I guess I've gays. He's putting people in jeopardy. And he doesn't need to be doing this. And then Steve scalise, the kind of number two guy in the GOP and House says, quote, it's potentially illegal what he's doing. This I find odd, he doesn't say what exactly is illegal. And then Gates has kind of hit back and he said, quote, this is the behavior of weak men, not leaders, striking out at McCarthy and scalise. And then Tucker Carlson on Fox basically says that we got to stop McCarthy from being the leader. Next time, we don't need a quote Republican Congress led by a puppet of the Democratic Party.

"Now here's where we're at Eric I'm announced in this on your show. Okay. What we've done, now, now I did a Facebook Live two date or yesterday. I did a Facebook Live and I'm and I told what I'm gonna tell you right now. I said, you know what? Dominion deleted is deleting the whole 2020 election and they have to preserve evidence Tina Peters has a before and after, they have to preserve evidence in any lawsuits. There's been over 200 lawsuits and threatening letters from dominion in this country. Now, they help to preserve evidence. It's a felony. You kept keep stuff in the machines of to federal crime because you didn't keep it for 22 months. It's a state Colorado state crime and other states do. We've got them in all the states. Well, also, they didn't preserve evidence in my case in my cases, and my pillow sued them, remember, and smartmatic. So they didn't preserve Evan. We've been sending them preservation of evidence things for months. What they did Eric is they threw the guns into the river after they committed a murder. Now, I told this story yesterday. Now here's where I'm breaking on your thing. Alan duke, everybody is ahead of the Facebook fact checker. There's 5 of them. It's a company he's co owner with a guy named Martin overseas. He's overseas. We went head to head in battles with him. They're the Facebook fact checkers called lead stories. Very famous episode on Frank speech. I went shame on it, shame on you all and duke. That's for that same came from. Alan duke has covered up more stuff on Facebook. Now remember, Mark Zuckerberg came out three weeks ago and said, the Facebook fact checkers are just opinions. He said it in court. He said they're just opinions. The no, you didn't hear about that, everybody. He took cover his own butt. He said they're just opinion. But Ellen duke, he's been late. He's been standing away from Eric until yesterday. When I announced this, that this deletion, this stuff that Tina Peters has, he put a Facebook fact check over it and said and stopped all the live stream and it says you click on it and it says, here's why it's partially false it says partially false information. At the cyber symposium, we put up on the board what Tina Peters found what they deleted, but it was just like the, you know, it takes months of cyber guys to dig into that. We put it up there and two guys at the symposium made comments. Yep, that's just not true. It looks like they came out of two machines. So he put this Facebook fact check over yesterday. Well, I got news for you, Alan duke. Since then, 5 different cyber teams or cyber people independent of each other have dug into what was deleted. It's over for dominion. We're going to get this to Alan duke too. So he's going to do a public apology to the whole country and say yes, this is true. But Eric, you know what we're doing with this, we're bringing it to the judge in D.C. and saying, hey, they deleted they didn't preserve evidence in this case.

After 11 months of Biden, how's the CBP doing? They're very frustrated. And that's why I have agents talking to me because obviously the public affair office doesn't really sniff around. I'm not a big fan of mine. But they're frustrated because they saw this is what they're telling me. They saw what happened during the Trump years. And the board has been a problem for a very long time, but at least it was making progress in a good way for the past for the four years under president Trump. And so they saw what could be.

Vik Hawksley on His Non-Conventional Approach to Develop Strength & Mobility

"One of the things i think about when i look at your your training and zone through social media is you. You've often and i don't know if you do it a lot now. But you used to super set a lot of mobility and heavy strength work. And i remember vividly. You doing a really heavy dead lift for wraps and then gone back bridge. And i think like that's like daddy sarko like that kind of combination of movements in the one workout really speaks to the hall of athos of what you end and us what we value in in training right where it's like the ability to do everything and it's not like you're trying your best not to be linear about it. Can you talk a little bit on that. Sort of less. Conventional approach to developing strengthened mobility. Are i mean there are different ways. We can go about it. I mean most simplest way. I'll just speak about it. As if kind of i talk. I talk about this with everybody. Who walks through the doors of aim. You know no matter what they experienced and stuff as the first thing in anything is being away on kind of in in this case. If strength is the end goal know the conventional way is just training right. You know there's plenty of literature. Data's plenty of programs that bid that will get us. You know swallow jacked. What if you follow from eight to be to see and things like that. What it doesn't count for is obviously you know kind of a you know who that individuals they live context. They learning abilities. You know kind of you. Boys have young families of two guys train as much. Since i've had. I haven't been doing ju jitsu like you know kind of like old being able to train the way i was doing everything has had to volve so the thinking behind you know.

Simple dallas Multiple different goals. That had so as i say. Strong bending skillful Strong suppleant savage right. Whatever you wanna call it effectively The goal then. Whatever i'm going to do has compliments kind of one of those things at lates. So when i get into session. That's what i have in mind.

Sex Tips I Wish I Knew in College

"Here's a few things. I wish i knew in college. Ho somebody things. I mean i think that hookup culture is definitely thriving. Though some people think hookup culture hasn't really changed. It's always been there. But i just wanted to find what i think culture is. It's not so much everyone having sex with everyone else but more of a normalization of people having one night stands or hooking people without being in defined relationships. So i just want to encourage all of you to pay attention to what you want and you have to fit into what everyone's doing don't have sex. Check it off the list. People are going to get drunk and have sex. And that's real but what. I wish i knew in college was more about orgasms. And pleasure and my body. And i'd never masturbated before i know a lot of you thought this two guys. We're going to like me more. If i hooked up with them. You find your people. I promise you will heal. College really is the perfect time to explore your sexuality and experience a lot of different things and figure out what you like. Maybe it's the first time been living away from home without your family so you really are able to experiment sexually. But here's some quick easy rules to follow. That will help you. And your partners have more pleasure and minimize all those awkward situations. Get to know the person. I not just me but studies have shown that the more connected sex rehab. It's definitely the more pleasurable and masturbate. Play with yourself figure out what you like. Don't be shied to try a toy and to start getting your sex on remember consent. I know there's a lot of talks about consent. People think consent isn't sexy but it's so nice to know and be enthusiastic about the situations you're getting into sexually consent can be sexy it really can. I mean think about all the pressure that comes from not knowing what your partner wants so again the mourner yourself the more you can practice enthusiastic consent you should be saying which means sober and on going every time you get to consent to what you want because you wanted something last.

"On tv has changed. Anything people react differently. Were they do. Because i have an incredible man cave here in a lot of chachis and yes but almost like watch what happens. Live a little bit different. Yeah i just do it. There's there's a voyeuristic feel ev. Probably fourteen cameras in here and they follow along wherever you go. We don't play to the camera. And therefore i'm doing a radio show on tv about a radio show and therefore you just come on in and you can kind of watch us and we kinda show good bad and ugly. We show you how radio is made. We wanted to bring you behind the curtain. And i've been able to do that for the last almost fifteen years with this sort of simulcast. It's fun and you're enjoying the whole process right. Yeah i just turned sixty five so you know to be able to get up to do it every day. I like doing it every day. And i have great group. A guy like we just have fun. You come in and you go this. This was fun and now it looks like you're having fun when you watch it. And i said this to my guys on friday last friday i said how a bleep and fund shell and it was and it should be i mean there days during the pandemic where what are we talking about but it brought. It brought us closer together because we had to kind of figure out. This was not normal time. So what are you talking about. And what differentiates you from somebody else and we just thought about things more because a lot of it was just we naturally do it and we fill in the gray area. We had to get. We had to be a little bit more strategic and what we were doing. But i've been with these guys for me. Some of them for twenty years and we just. We're we're friends and we sort of know how to do this. Yeah yeah we do a segment with. We still do it. Occasionally we talk about our guilty pleasure for the week whatever and then during the pandemic we would always ask. What's your guilty pleasure. And after wall just became a guilty. Pleasure is breathing without a mask on in your living room. Yeah but we became these creatures of habit because we were thrown into this the whole world where they just kind of stopped so we had to find creativity and interest in things to forget of just about talking about but actually to do everyday. That was a little bit different. So you challenge yourself so it's not the same thing you know well a lot of times what you talk about and when you talk about it you give more importance to it or less importance to it. If there's nothing going on then that story becomes even bigger but if there's two other stories going on then that might be the third most popular story that you're going to talk about. A lot of it is timing with the scandal breaks or somebody gets traded or somebody gets fired and there are other things that are going on. Then you might not get to those or might not spend as much time on those stories. I hear loving during the podcast business. And what else does it you would like to do before we boot. You off our podcast. I love the radio aspect. I i like when you can listen to my voice or listen to me interview and then you formalize whatever you wanna form formalize that that you created in your mind. I think it's still a very very powerful aphrodisiac. Like it's like yeah i. I just started doing some documentaries. Am i got one finished and another one. That i'm working on one has to do with Jump roping in the olympics and the other one has to do with Saving scallops and nantucket going out with fishermen and what they do every day and you know how the conditions you know getting the scallops to all these restaurants and having you know the chefs talk about it. It was just something that fascinated me out of. No i mean we're talking about. Hey you're the sports guy. Well i'm talking about scallops on nantucket and getting jump roping in the olympics and they just fascinated me so many men out there going. I didn't know this weirdo. I'm not watching life scallops. Actually i love only stores scout. No in my my wife will eat the live scallops. No no no no. I've had that. Oh yeah yeah yeah you have to separate them from that shell because they have an attachment. Yeah like tentacle on there. But they're good. We have one story. We want to tell you that. I'm i don't know if you've heard before. But when paul anderson came to me you know i never. I was like this. Podcast is never going to sell. Why would anybody ever want this podcast. And i thought about positive person. I really didn't give it to thoughts and joey's off telling everybody we're doing a podcast. I said stop telling everybody that you're going to be embarrassed. And and paul anderson called me one day and he said dan patrick wants to buy you cast and i was like why would the lieutenant governor of texas. We have to talk about trump things and politics all that we were like. Why would he care about us. He's he's so right he's gonna hate us. I don't understand the next. I have people who think that i come up with these policies. That deluce guys. Lieutenant governor came out and said he didn't care about old people and i got people who were angry like. Why don't you care about old people. I don't even know what they're talking about. I said i love old people. I'm one of us. I'm getting there but they're like. How can you have those opinions. But you never bring those up on your show. And i'm like that's so we're well. We had the same mistake only because at the time he was being very vocal about what was going on and so he's a name was in the news a lot and so that was the dan. Patrick and i you. He's a former sports caster. And oh yeah and i wanted. Yeah yeah he. I wanted to say you know. Can you tone down the rhetoric here. you know. just you can have your opinions. But they're different than my opinions here. Hey i'm proud to have you guys part of the podcast network that i have and i look forward to Being able to cross pants in person here. Yes we to thank you david for whoever the hell you god i knew this. Tell everything to find you already. Know what the fucking mind doing care. We'll see well.

"She'd leave the house her mother would yell from the other room. Take that piece off before you leave. So she'd always have to take one thing off and then she was perfect but she always tend to do that one extra thing that made it too much. And that's kind of the same thing with some people with their injectables or their surgery. Just don't know where to stop and sometimes you see that where somebody was something or someone and then you see them later and It's it's tough to see you know you feel for the 'cause like a guy we just age and we age naturally gracefully gracefully. And it's okay but we don't allow women to have that that moment that opportunity. Yeah it's one thing to sleep with a stranger. It's another thing to wake up. I've never seen susan serandon recently. She looked spectacular. Yeah jacqueline smith. From charlie's angels amazing. Just go that's not fair. I don't care how it's don if anything's done. She looked spectacular. Yeah right well. That's when you've done it right. I'm sure she's done something she's done it right so that you don't know a lot of it is is in skin-care two boys rising that that plays a great role. Lauren bacall man aged well too. I mean she went through those fifties and sixties and she looked like herself and there was a grace to that too. But you know i. It's a hard thing to let go of. Even i even become guilty of that. Sometimes when you look at yourself in the morning shave and you go wait is that okay good morning. I think it's me your. You're trying to shave around certain areas it but if i recognize hollywood heartthrob in your younger years you weren't going to be in your later years. Which would you take talking about your joey. Would you take the early years. Would you take those early years knowing. You're going to be david cassidy. Or bobby sherman. I would just become a director. Okay after when it changed. I would no. I would just know well enough when to step away from the camera. I think you're twenties and thirties. And if you could roll into your forties with some semblance of of that. I think you're doing really well. And i think there comes a time for everybody that you have to put your ego aside and let yourself be who you are authentically. So i'm not quite sure. If i mean it's hard for a lot of people especially because that image represents us all the time but are you suggesting trading up david cassidy for like a george clooney. Where in his later years. He's as attractive because he wasn't as attractive when he was younger to where he is now. But rather have into david cassidy heartthrob for fifteen or twenty years. Or would i not. I'd rather have george clooney but lied. Rather i'd rather remain little brad pitt. I mean look how he's agent. He's fifty six nine that's not fair keanu reeves are who still looks like. He's thirty five he does. He came into the studio couple of years ago. He walked in had suit on. And he's fifty. I think at the time he looked thirty five. It wasn't scanned. It was not fair. And i went. Tam you look awesome. Yeah he looks awesome beautiful skin. All that bo talks and moisturizer. But i mean i'm i'm up close and personal with brad every day and let me tell you he. He looks amazing. I mean in. Every way i mean and and it's also the way that you represent yourself. You know the way that you look at life you know you got to keep that energy young within your spirit and within your mind you've got to be present. My dad was the same way he he read everything he he was always current he never. Oh when i was a kid. He didn't subscribe to that. That stuff at all. It was always in the moment and you hung out with younger. People didn't hang out with a bunch of old fogies talking about emma royds all day long. You know there was nothing worse than that. I think it kinda transcends from inside to outside to where you go back to thelma and louise with brad and just pops on the screen. And you're like yeah. Oh my god. Oh yeah you know. Yeah that was heartthrob big. Yes it was. Yes but then you know what he did you know. Once upon a time you know. He took that shirt. god of an oscar. I know he was so funny in it. Just just when he's yeah he's stoned in. He's getting the dog. That was my favorite theme. It's so sneaky great. That's my favorite scene to dislike. Heap killed that killed in such a subtle way. That i thought was just brilliant on set that day too and i was laughing my ass. Think he's he's one night. I don't want to say he's one but he won kristof volts to academy awards right and a win one for brad and i say that because he he made those scenes the actor has to make it work but like the scene and inglorious bastards with christoph when he comes into that farmhouse and you know you have the jews in the basement there hiding and he knows they're there. They know that he knows they're there. And it's about a seven minute scene. I remember watching in the movie. I turned to my wife. I said he he just won the academy award and she goes. How do you know that. I said he he. I didn't know anything about chris. Volz but oh my god. I was like he just won the academy award. Yep it's interesting how you can pick the scene. Actually that that got them the award. I do that quite often with certain movies. I watch especially a lot of the conic films and you can really see where they got. And that and i guarantee you that is seeing that brad one four. Yes but but you know renee when she did. Judy garland there's a scene. Not the very end but right before the very end. And i'm watching. I said to my wife. I said she just won the academy award. And i think because of that scene she did. It's weird. I do this all the time when i not that. I'm always right. But when i watch a movie go. Oh my god. You're going to get nominated for that scene. Or i felt strongly foreign press associated. Well being an actor myself. I understand the the art. So something i relate to with brad yes remember that phil network Beatrice straight one it just for once. She was only in the movie for one scene and she stole that. That's what she got. She picked up that oscar. She just that one scene and she was only in the movie for one scene she. That was the scene that she won the oscar for now. The mentioned being an actor. How are you finding that transition from radio to being on the peacock every morning you.

"Ran. Okay that one kid interesting because people the sports guy right. Yeah and you know what makes a well rounded person but you know like a little bit of everything. Obviously some people may not like an opera or this or that. But i think guys are in. The modern era are discovering. That they don't have to be quite so focused on. I can only like sports. Or i can only like this thing otherwise people would think differently about. I love a good opera. I've got my best sleep. Through what happens when i go to a party. It's amazing the number of people who think that they have to translate the conversation into sports vernacular that i somehow couldn't understand this unless they use a sports analogy and i usually stop by goat. No no i understand it it because they'll go it'd be like in your world it would be and i go no no there. I'm fine with understanding. You know the the premise of this. Or if you have an accent and then somebody tries to speak to you in your accent. So you'd understand better but go. Yeah so how did you to speak. I understand regular english. Not just my russian version of it. I wait for on asian. We'd go to vacation in italy. And she would she would just doing this No but she would speak slower in english. And i go. I said honey if they didn't get it regularly that if you go slower they still may not understand you but thank talking louder. I you know i've done that. I've done what she sank. Wait do you go normally or is it just a one time trip you took. I haven't been north. I haven't been delayed coamo but go into naples this That my Ancestors are from my. My grandparents are from naperville. I'll look them up. Yeah yeah it's called out and it's funny thing is our surname is sarno. My father was a took the name santos from one of my grandma's five husbands. I think the second one and so then. They're buried in our namesake town in naples. Sarno essay on k. Yeah have you seen veil of of christ. Have you seen this sculpture. No yes you have and naples. Yes and my wife wants me to go. We're going to naples to see this. This incredible sculpture. And you know if your audience google's this it s. Oh yes i have seen it in the middle of naples. It's moroccan lines up to go in and see absolutely incredible. She wants me to go. See that and go have pizza in naples you have to. Those are the two things we're doing in naples but her family's from bari. The mafia coast you know so by the boot and that's beautiful. Yeah but i. Italy is great florence We've we've been there sienna. You guys been to. Oh yeah. I've been to the horse. Polio polio once. We had front row seats which was exciting. But you had to sit there for three hours in the sun then the next year we decided no son. We sat up in one of the apartments where they served a champagne and food during the whole thing but you know. The view is a little different from three stories. Up is not quite the same as being right down on the track. But i find that race to be incredibly exciting. Well all ninety seconds. It's like a three or four hour build up to about ninety seconds. And that's it but it is you know the the the horses the contributors the the the neighborhoods. They all get together. They have their horses. They bring in these jockeys from sardinia. You know. they're worried that they're on the take like there's no saddles. It's basically you. Try to stay on your. You can whip the other horse. If you're on a competing hor it's wild. And the first time i went i went with my friends. Julian gerry and we didn't know what to expect. And it was crazy because you know people are falling off the horses and getting trampled. It was the most exciting thing. I'd ever seen crazy italian way. Yeah my drinks getting low. So we'll be right back so we were a little surprised by are male audience. That was following us on the podcast. It started out. Sort of fifty fifty. But you know when. I was a kid just a few years ago. You couldn't wear pink to school. You'd get beat up and now you guys all the time wearing pink. Nobody discusses it. The world has really changed. And i think manner becoming a little more well rounded. You couldn't even suggest a pedicure to amana long time a long time ago. No that's too feminine. Now there's more men getting their this wax or asked wax or legs wax balls wax grooming and women appreciate it you know. Nobody wants to go in the forest without you know without some protection or at least a. Gps of sort even a looks truffles. So you've got to prepare for those things. It has nothing to do with feminizing yourself. And what about plastic surgery. There are more men lined up for that for bowe talks and skin care so it's just a matter of maybe we're finally getting away from that. Divide that masculine versus feminine. And just being. I think it's in your characteristic who you are and what you are and how you relate but the physical we should all appreciate and take care of. I believe does a rookie. Anc other vo talks thumbs up thumbs. Yeah depends and i'll just say this. We had a plastic surgeon on recently one of the better ones in new york city. Probably the best in new york city and he explained it and there is a difference in the way that you inject demand as opposed to injecting a woman. And you could take that whichever way you want. But i'm talking about boats hawks right now because the the expressions that a man has in his face or different than a woman and a woman can hide certain things with makeup and that man. Can't you have to be very careful where you inject demand. So their eyebrows don't arch or become feminized or their face doesn't become shiny so it's really important if you're gonna do those things to go to the guy that that is more expert on a man's face as opposed to just doing women so i say yes if you research the i couldn't do it because of the needle factor just because yeah ok. Well plus. yeah that's the way. I don't wanna be able to raise your yeah. I don't i've been around somebody who just had it done and Like it was just strange. Because i thought that i was. I had some funny lines. But they weren't laughing. In a way. That i i don't think they could truly smile. I wasn't quite sure. And then they said that they had just had bo talks and said oh okay. I thought you know. I'm wasting this good material on this person. Yeah yeah you need a better. joan rivers. Couldn't make herself laugh anyway. But i could never have cosmetic surgery should have one thing. I couldn't do it. Just i don't know to go under the knife. Yeah that scares me too. If you said hey how. 'bout you do fifty percent of what you wanna do because it feels like people always do one hundred and ten percent of what they wanna do. They always go too much instead of going. You know i'm just gonna go a little bit into this. Yeah it should be tiny. Things should be thirty percent of what you think you've you. Yeah ginger rogers used to be guilty of this. When she was a big star back in the day she was always accused of wearing too much too many things too much jewelry too much close too many feathers so every time.

"We lived in new york. It's children we would always be the yankee stadium. It would be on in the car every time we had an outing. It was always a radio station. Always the game. And he'd be yelling and screaming if they were losing alabama. I mean it was crazy and then you know we come home and the and the game would be on and he'd be throwing stuff at the tv and my brother. And i would just go. Oh my god. So that was really our introduction. We were always athletic and we love to play outside and play sports and do all that stuff with him but watching the game was never my thing especially on tv. Going to the events i loved. I mean that's always exciting and always great you know and learning about it. I was always amazed when people would get together and they would have these in depth conversations. Know the names the history. No the batting averages no all of that stuff and i would just sit there looking at airplanes in the sky going. Okay what what was that one. I mean but don't you have topics that are similar to that as far as your depth of knowledge on it. yeah. I completely relate to that. I just wish that i knew more about it. So my point being that. I'm beginning to be more interested in learning those little things because my partner is a big sports fanatic plays soccer hockey all of that stuff growing up and he watches every game basketball every football game. You know all the tickets. So i've been getting into that now and learning those ins and outs so i don't feel like such a do f- when they're having these conversations are when he's trying to explain something to me. I don't look like there's birds flying over my head You still like that. My wife is the same way. My wife loves going to the events but she doesn't know you know the details right but she knows enough that if she sits there then she can offer up a conversation about it. But and i have three daughters to and now you know. They're meeting boys in the boys. Of course no all this sports and then my daughters are blaming me. Because i didn't make them learn sports when they were growing up. So yeah i said no you were around it all the time you chose not to learn and now they're around these guys in all they want to do is talk sports because they think my daughter's new sports because they're related to me right. I know a lot of girls that know a lot about sports. So it's it's really impressive. I mean and i mean and they are right there. You know what i mean. They know how to go to a baseball game. And shoot for that touchdown. i'll take a look at the. Nfl the nfl probably has a good thirty five. To forty percent of its audience is female. Yeah big time. They understand that one of my first dates. I ever had with my wife. We went to a mets game. And i taught her how to keep score during the game. She loved it. It was something that was interactive and she learned know kind of the nuances of baseball through. It you have to find a way into it. My experience was similar. My mother hated when the football season came around with my father. Got so excited. But in my problem was i can never understand like okay. There's two games are. There's two teams going on here and neither one is my city. Cincinnatian me is like. Oh i don't care who wins. How does that affect my i. No i know but if it was los angeles at least i could get behind it zillow. That's my team right now. That's who i would root for. But otherwise i couldn't quite get into like why do i care of one or the other one wins. Although i love watching the game or i love being there if it's a close game because i don't really care who wins but if it's closed it gets exciting well in football. I don't think you you don't need to have of territorial rooting interest. You'll watch a game. You could be betting on it. There's fantasy football. You know the the nfl checks all the boxes there that you don't it's rare when you go into a game and you go. I don't really have a rooting interest. It could be. I'm gambling or you know somebody's on my fantasy team. Somebody facing they have somebody playing in this game. Yeah betting helped especially at the horse track. Yeah for sure people who won't if they don't have any interest in a game they'll put money on it so they have a rooting interest in the game. And you only do that. When i really was football. Yeah it was funny about twenty years ago. I was at a super bowl party and it was a bunch of our friends may about four or five guys you know and then it was all the husbands and wives so most of the wives were in the kitchen when the game was going on preparing all the snacks and the food for the for the guests and everything and so me and the few guys that i brought we were in the kitchen with the wives talking help cooking swapping recipes all that bullshit and then halftime comes around and all the guys get up from the living room come into the kitchen and start eating and then all of us the wives and us we go into the living room because it was diana ross dropping from a helicopter to sing know i will survive or whatever the big and so you hear it all the ruining the guys turn around and they look into the living room with all of us in the living room in front of the tv yelling and screaming like meanwhile nobody cared about the game. You know the dichotomy of the two things was hilarious. You're making as much noise during halftime as they did during the during the game. Exactly that was. Yeah so dan you know. A lot of people have asked us how we got this show and they said. Why would dan. Patrick ever be interested in youtube people. We've heard this. We've heard it a thousand times. It's the horse's mouth. We want you to explain to them since we can't. I still haven't come up with an answer so we but i'm working on it when it was brought to me by my agent paul anderson and he said just listen. Listen to these guys. I'm more about the quality of the broadcast. Not as much content as i am how people interact like does it sound good. And that's the first thing i heard is. It sounded comfortable. And then after that then you start listening for the content with and how it was different. And i didn't want to be known as hell. You're just the sports guy right. Look i love music. Movies art cars a lot of different things. I'm interested in those things. And that's why i thought getting a different perspective of hollywood. Is it intrigued. Me and your chemistry is what really sold me because it just works it just without even trying. I don't think a lot of times you know partners will try to figure out. How do we make it sound better. I think to just do it. And it sounds better in and that sort of an innate ability to be able to do something that you're comfortable with and understand the other person strengths and weaknesses so those are the things that sound like this off the air. Well thank you thank you. Yeah i mean we've had a lot of practice. You've been friends for thirty five years so but it sounds away has but a lot of times what you wanna do is and i am to do this when i interview. People is. I want to give you the feeling you're eavesdropping on a conversation right. This isn't something that i'm broadcasting to you as much as you kind of tuned into something in your like. Am i supposed to be hearing this. I i want you to have that feel of voyeuristic but you know in in an audible way and an audible. Yeah yeah well that answers our next question about why. Getting into the hollywood podcast. But you know it's interesting. You mentioned that you're you're that you like theater and all those other things which by the way musical theater. I want to see cabaret. I went to see. Les ms catz. Yes all right. Well forget that last.

We see the entire bay from where we're staying is really really beautiful yet. It's amazing and it's just now. The sun is beginning to set. And it's going to be magnificent. I wish you could see it. It's really beautiful so we have a drink this week. Our special guests and we're very excited to be having this guest. Yes we are.

Now get your but that should not have been hot. Those are usually sweet. It was hot. Well let's get into our team today because they're interview with dan in his pretty lengthy so we've got worlds colliding as our theme and that's mostly because he's a big sports journalists yet and we're not or activists what do you call them. Sports activists enthusiasts like a good sport. So i've been a good sport my whole life taking it on the chan- now but i am a good sport and i love sports. I love to watch them. I'm just not very coordinated playing them. But i used to a lot of we don't follow. Sports segment may follow. We don't know who's you know. What teams are going and doing what we we don't have the scores of all the players. I don't know their names. And i don't have. It's not a part of my wardrobe. I coordinate my jersey with my saw no to carry a flag on the plane career years ago i went to argentina and i met the martinez family. Many people may recognize that they have these stores all over the world called martina and they sell polo close law. Martinez will know anyways this family. They have a great ethic condos or something like that big estate and with all the polo fields in house in. It's beautiful place about an hour outside buenos autos and somebody that i know down. They said oh you know. Let's go out there. i'm taking lessons. You go with me and take less than i thought. This sounds like fun. You know i'll tell you a lesson we got out there. We spent the morning on the horse. An actually was great because their grandson was giving me my lesson that day and i did pretty. Well there's a couple of times. I almost went over the front of the horse. When you know you're trying to get no nothing to hold onto you've got the reins hair and and you've got the mallet in the other hand. There's you're not holding onto the horse with anything but your legs right so that was a little weird when you're not a big horseback rider but we did pretty well and we think we did that about two hours so you were actually playing polo and you will. He was teaching me with tj. Because you don't what they do is get you while the how hers is galloping to try to hit the ball is moving out whole thing hoping sidesaddle picture in my head. I can't petticoats and boots. I just wanna get busier.

It was great because he then said. Oh we're having all these people that are staying there on the ranch with them. Who had flown in from all over the world and have flown. There are horses in which is this is a very expensive for sure and they sit. Come at lunch with us so it was so interesting that was about sixteen of us around this long table in their ranch house and it was thanksgiving so it was all decorated. Is really beautiful. Really interesting people all over the world and after lunch we all got along so well after lunch. They said let's go out and have a polo game. I've only been on this horri- for two hours this morning. No you're good. You're good. I have to say we did really will split up into teams and and i didn't fall off the horse. I hit the damn ball.

"two guys" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books

"Dark tower in this episode. We'll cover the cbs all access series the stand episode one the end. Let's start the show in the end. We are introduced to three characters. Who states seem intertwined via framing story during a massive flu epidemic. That kills over ninety. Nine percent of all people herald lauder. A social outcast is a young man aspiring to be a writer his former babysitter. Freddy goldsmith is the only other survivor at his small maine town together. They decide to travel to the cdc in atlanta where they hoped to find someone in charge. Meanwhile stu redman is being studied by military scientists because he is immune to the flu five months later in the boulder free zone we see herald plotting against doing friend who is now pregnant tate. We talked a lot when we covered the stand. The novel about how strange it was to read it in twenty twenty in the midst of the covid nineteen outbreak and how there were some uncanny parallels between the novel in real life indeed. Yeah and for me watching this. It hit me different sing. It actually portrayed on screen where people are sick and coughing and sneezing and the looks that people give when they hear these people coughing. It is very scary in a way. That's different from reading it in a book. Yeah and even seeing the occasional and it really was occasional person in the show wearing a mask. They're sort of on their own to they didn't. This is crept up on the world so quickly that nobody had a chance to figure out what would be effective or what was enough to protect yourself so everybody sort of just making it up for themselves. Which meant only a handful of people even bother to wear a mask or thought to wear masks so i have a feeling that the show is going to hit a lot of people in a lot of different ways because of that and i wonder if it'll affect the way that it's perceived it'll be an interesting aspect of this show premiere what it did so one of the things we wanna do as we cover a tv show for the first time jay which is sort of exciting is we want to. This is cool. Include listener feedback. Especially since we're going to be as timely as we can with these episodes so we want people to be able to respond and hopefully we can respond to them and hear what they're thinking and even though this just premiered earlier today we already have a listener who has given us some thoughts. And that is travis who wanted to ask us j. about what we think about the non linear structure. I could see book readers hating it because it's not what king did but i can also see it working. That's for them because they get to watch this story unfold. In a different way non book readers may be left confused or they might like the modern lost like structure. Which i thought was interesting because i was the first thing i thought of as well as like okay. Here's how we're doing this. We're going to have a framing device where to focus on one character. And maybe look at a little bit of their backstory. And go from there. Yeah i do see like there. There's merit to the way that they chose to adapt this show and for me as a book reader. I'm just picking up where they pick up and feels like that same sensation of when you start a movie. Middle irony know what this moment is. When herald is helping to clean up bodies. I know what that represents in the book. Is that the best place to start like frame one of a tv series for somebody who has no familiarity with the story. We'll find out it's hard for me to put myself in those shoes but it's a it's an interesting question. Yeah you know. He traveled mentioned loss. But what i thought about was breaking bad so breaking bad has debt in episode one. It starts off with the scene with walter white in the middle of a desert just wearing tighty whiteys And it is very memorable and the thing about that is your immediate thought is how did this guy get in the situation. Where he's in an rv in his underpants with a gun in the middle of the desert. And so what's going to be the build up to that. And then in the second season they did something similar right there is a an eyeball floating in a pool and bringing in you're like oh who's eyeball is that. Why is it in a pool. What exactly happened. And so when. I think of starting a story in media res it's often like oh this is some sort of pivotal point or important point. And how did we get here. And i did think it was odd that the point that we started with is just herald cleaning up the bodies and then throwing up. It didn't seem in my memory of the book like this is a major pivotal point in either the whole story or even as that characters as an individual and so when the framing story started there. I'm like what are we doing. I almost felt like. Was there an episode that i missed coming into this because i don't know what's going on and i've obviously read the book so i was able to catch up quickly but it. It seemed a little bit. Weird to me if i had to guess what the show runner was going for here. The thing that that they were trying to get to with this in meteorologist moment was there are so many dead bodies and decaying bodies and people who died where they stood or sat. That's the thing like how did we get here. Let's start there. Let's start with the devastation of the disease. Captain trips and then work our way back to it. So rather than watching a bunch of people. Get the sniffles for episode after episode and you describe more and more people dead instead they had everybody dead right and then at some point of without really giving us a chance to see this yet dealing with the aftermath of that mass death from that perspective. I think it's it's effective because if you don't know what to expect on this even you know just being a book reader i. I wasn't sure how they were going to. Visually represent somebody who has died from capt trips. And they did a pretty great job of that as the scenes of the dead people when i first saw them. Oh that's how they're going to do it okay. Yup i guess the other issue i had with it was the first line of the show. Is mother abigail voice. And it's her dying words in the book spoiler alert where she actually says you. I need you to go to las vegas and take a stand right near like oh great. Yep were there and then to zoom in on herald who's not that person and who is in fact the antagonised of of the story To some extent that this is this is how we're starting and this is the character were starting with. I was a little taken aback by that. I'm not saying it was a bad choice. It was just a choice that i was not expecting. And i'm not sure for a non book reader. How it's gonna play out and travis was getting to that to some extent when he asked what a non book reader might think so. I'll be interested to talk to other people who've watched the show and see what they think about that. So travis thank you for your feedback and to all of our listeners. Please keep your feedback coming for all the episodes if you wanna talk about previous episodes in the coming weeks and your analysis and comparison for that share We want to.

"You can also email us at two guys Dr Tower at gmail.com in this episode. We'll cover. Jerusalem's Lot. short-story founded nightshift. Let's start the show. Charles Boone has just moved into his ancestral home a chapel wait in Maine along with his manservant Calvin. They quickly learned the house is not all that it seems and mysteries about Boone's ancestors in a nearby abandoned village may be a cause of concern. I just twenty even have an ancestral home. I mean one has ancestors who have a home. That's been passed down through the ages okay. It's a fairly common phrase in Scooby Doo J. I wasn't in the Scooby Doo frame of mind you. I've always always the scrupulous frame of mind all right so Jerusalem's Lot Jay. This is a short story that was first published in nightshift which is an early collection of Stephen King Stories. I think it's actually the first short story collection was published two came out in nineteen seventy eight and this is one of the few short stories in that book that that was not in a magazine I most of his short story collections were brought together from his publications in men's magazines but Jerusalem's lot seem to be written specifically for the book and it's interesting because I'm guessing it's because salems lot itself came out in nineteen seventy five and it was fairly you popular for King Carrie was the first book and then sales came out second and then there was a TV mini series of Salem Slot in nineteen seventy nine so Jerusalem's lot serves as a type of Prequel. It's the first book in the collection. I didn't do any research but I'm guessing it was probably a sales point at that point of uncollected Stephen King story ever never before seen potentially. Yes good reason to buy this collection right just for that one story yeah well. You know I find it a good idea to buy any Stephen Stephen King Short story collection. Yeah for the most part. Yeah four past midnight might be ah that's a rough one. That's a rough one this. This story was also collected in two thousand five for the illustrated Salems lot edition it also has a short story called one for the road which is also in nightshift which is serves as a sequel to Salem Slot. It's a after the events and we'll talk about that short story in a few episodes so after we get through Sam's itself that's right. There's also a comic book adaptation in a book called Secretary of dreams by Glenn Chadbourne had borne that was published by cemetery dance which does a lot of special editions in comics. I'm guessing after last episodes. Comic Tobacco will be picking that up any three times soon. We'll we J. Yeah I sort of been soured on comic book adaptations of books. But I don't know one adaptation shouldn't be the only thing ended. I expose myself to perhaps I should give it a chance. Yeah and Glenn Chadbourne seems to have an interesting resumes an artist. I think he came to prominence in a Stephen King newsletter. That's how he got seen in. I he was doing some illustrations for Stephen King newsletter back in the day and has since turned that into a a career where he's been doing other illustrated work including some in the same slot illustrated traded addition as well as some other Steven King Book so worth looking up and as I mentioned this is a Prequel to Salem slot in some ways It's got the full blamed Jerusalem's lot in case. You're wondering what sales stood for now you know yes. It's also a hint at the fact that we're going to be spending a lot of time time a lot of episodes talking about empires in the coming weeks and months yeah exciting stuff. I'm always down for Vampires Empires and I guess that's a good way to transition so I've obviously read the story before because I read night shift when I was much younger so probably thirty some years go now but for whatever reason it's been stuck in my head that Jerusalem's lot as a prequel to sail was another vampire short that story and that would build on the the vampire -ness of of Salems lodden and introduced that to it and then we get into the format which is a pistol Larry and and which immediately draws connections to Bram Stoker's Dracula and I'm thinking hey. We're GONNA have more vampires but oddly enough. There's some endebted here but it is not a typical vampire story yeah and I really loved the epistolary format that King used. I thought he was remarkably successful restful at not only following this structure to stick with the literary format but also to emulate the language of the time period that the the story takes place. This really felt like a story that was written contemporaneous. Lee with the events just it rang true to like another Bram. Am Stoker story or an Edgar Allan Poe story. It just some of the words that king chose to use some of his spelling choices some of his like compound compound words and odd capitalizations in all felt of a piece. I think it worked really well. Set the tone. Yeah I totally agree so this. I should have mentioned surly but the story set pre-civil war in the eighteen fifties and it does very much mimic what you might think letters at the time would sound like or if you've read letters of the time what actually did sound like so King Natalie has an ear for Modern Day language as we've talked about before but also early American languages well and as I like to do I I did a little bit of a a little bit of research on epistolary format so J. It's interesting interesting because there are different types of a pillory writings. There's model logic which would be a story that's told from one perspective and for most of the store store you think it is just from one perspective it's Boone's letters to bones but then at some point it becomes dial logic meaning to because we get these journal entries trees from Calvin that sort of fill in a couple of blanks where we don't get boone's perspective either because he's taken ill or we just get a little bit of insight into Calvin and and then there's a third call polly logic which incorporates many different types of of writing and we get a little bit of that with that bonus code from one of Boone's owns descendants that makes it polly logic so there is your English literature terminology lesson for the day aw do the epistolary sub formats apply only to the type of writing. Is it only for letters or like if it's like not a letter but I don't know a series of journal entries or something like that yeah so I think epistolary just means not necessarily letters always but also different formats could be journal entries newspapers and that's how Dracula set upright where there is not only the journal Journal but there's also I think like ships manifest just in there and there's newspaper articles so there's a bunch of different types of writing and I would imagine that nowadays we get ones with emails and texts and stories like that would that would still apply as a pistol even if they're not in a letter could like a found footage style of film. be an pistolera Mary. That's a good question I would imagine so interesting so be really cool to adapt this story into a movie in that way somehow or TV mini series ace yeah we onto something here we might be so the format is interesting too because we especially when you get to so that boat is coded because I for one you sort of take boone's letters as straightforward yeah you take him at his word like you had had no reason to think that he's lying or insane or making this up but it's not till the end when you get the Coda. The descendant puts a little bit of a different spin in says oh well this is what happened in and I'm not sure that's the case and I I'm just going to have to do some more research on my own and oh by the way I hear some weird scratching in the walls off the Delekta do right right yeah I mean like when we first introduced to Boone we find out that he one of the reasons why he moved to Maine because he was ill and in he was kind of like his own. Sanity was in question and now as this ancestral home and it's huntings are driving him mad add are we to believe him. You know face value is he going is he. Just a kind of a person who's sickly succumbing to the pressures of the haunting of his home and and what's happening in Jerusalem's lot or is he just going back into the same madness that he narrowly the escaped from you know before he moved to Maine right so in the beginning. I guess it feels like it could go either way and then we're just along for the ride. We're like we're either reading being the writings of a madman which culminate in his suicide because of what he believes to be true or his perfectly sane person experiencing thing ridiculous events that he thinks he can only put a stop to buy ending his own life right and then like in the CODA. It's like yeah. All all of the things he said happened in the letters. There's no evidence for you know like the the church in Jerusalem's. Lot was not destroyed. There was no gaping pit down into the bowels of the earth. If he's not none of the things he talked about in the letter. Were there so clearly. He imagined all of this but they're scratching in the walls. There's there's there must be some giant rats yeller. You know so I guess here. We go again here. We go again yeah yeah so as I said earlier I was expecting this to be more about vampires but as you read into it it really becomes more of a HP lovecraft type through mythos story where instead of undead creature sucking the blood of of their victims there are these awful evil ones that are beyond the Ken of man that are we're living in the earth and weird magic's bring them back into our plane of existence whether that be through this book of magic that Boone's loons ancestor reads from an calls magic fourth and causes all this craziness and it's much bigger than the mind telomeres giant worms and and it really sort of took me by surprise because again like I was saying I was expecting vampires and instead we get this giant worm creature tears apart Calvin and drives drives Boonta wanted to to suicide but what was your thought on what would you were expecting what what you got Jay. I was also expecting vampires and I think that this was moving along really splendidly in terms of we're going to see vampires. We're GONNA see Vampires. king was doing a lot of really good work with vampire imagery injury and vampire foreshadowing he described the the rocky shoreline where the the waves are breaking as you know fangs rate and and there are all these illusions to incomplete reflections and stuff like that so there's a lot of lot of imagery just like in the beginning of little sisters of Luria where he's really setting the stage for by the way bloods involved in the story by the way vampires involved in the story so yeah when it turn onto Khufu it was like a really sharp left turn for me in where I was kind of like gobsmacked by that that was when boone started yelling out the crazy language that was from the that old book great and he was possessed by the language the this magical force that had finally possessed him none he was speaking in tongues or whatever and like this just got weird really weird all of a sudden and I wasn't disappointed. I should say I I didn't think it was bad but I was is really psyched for vampire reveal. You know like I was hoping that some deeply ancient vampire was going to come out of that pit that hand hand that crawled its way out was actually a vampire and that's where we were going to go and instead it was snow worm time and and so it worked by wasn't what I was expecting know exactly that the whole inbred cult of of his ancestors is just adding to the weirdness and creepy -ness of the whole thing while they're there is dead both in the house Jerusalem's Lot. They're not the type of data we are expecting expecting in not caused the way that we were expecting them to and we have not read sale Mossad yet. Obviously that's coming up so we can't do too much comparisons but I wonder if this is king and just sort of setting the stage for there's something about this area of the world that's drawing evil or monsters or weirdness here whether and that's why vampires ars to Salems lot to come to in the book. I guess we'll find that out if there's a special reason but it does seem like there is something about this area that that's causing this. There's a sign only vampires ars conceive evil. Welcome come here. Lots the eat free. HBO and Blood Yes so when I put it all together. A lot of this seems again. This is early King he obviously published a number of books and autonet short stories at this point but it does seem like early king we talked about how the gunslinger doesn't seem like a Stephen. King Book is the writing is so different from what it is and it's almost like and it was a young man who was trying something out yeah you know drawing from different inspirations and the seems like another story where that's the case a little bit not a little bit a lot better in my opinion as far as nailing it though like he's got the Bram stoker letter writing and and the vampires he's got the HP lovecraft weird Catholic peace and he's able to put that altogether and even though it is some sort of pastiche it still works as a Stephen King Story and he's obviously a the master at the writing like he talks about in the forward tonight shift about how his main thought is story story story..

"That is pretty pretty pretty mature content. There's a lot of violence. There's sex there's evil deeds en- senseless violence and things like that that <hes> aw to be fair most of that in the book yeah. I guess the one piece that seemed elevated to me was the sexual either entendre 's or for overlays or just the prominence of it. I i know that some of that was in the books but it seemed at and maybe it was just because of the way it was presented but there seemed like there's there's a lot more of it here one of my problems with the adaptation here as i think it's a juvenile ization of the story. I think that kings story has enough new. You want senate that the events take place are developed. The characters have enough nuance that you can start to understand in their motivations. Even if they're terrible this felt like it was simplified to the point that it kind of felt like it was like a somebody who was much younger than the audience for the book rewrote this to appeal to im- herself in it was just like kulin tough-guy another cool line another tough guy and then like tough guys slapping a woman for no reason season and then like yeah well there you go so yes we get the point jay tough line cool lines sexy types etc sure all right so so that there's that point so maybe the the adaptation is not appealing to the right audience but what about the art i mean daily is a very well respected artists. What what are your thoughts on the overall look of the the the comics here because this really is the first time other than the movie which we shall not name that we actually get to see roland and so the other characters. I know that jae. Lee's reputation precedes him and i respect him as an artist. I am not a fan of the choices he made here. He he makes the mundane look grotesque and the grotesque look horrifying. I really had a hard time looking at his art in a lot of pages of this at tation and that might be a very deliberate artistic choice he might be thinking this is a world that has moved on this is a world that has been affected by some sort of plague or holocaust that has mutated animals and caused is slow mutants to form and things like that and the landscape to be barren so why shouldn't it be grotesque so maybe that is a perfect marriage of king's vision and j lease artistic talents an artistic choices but his execution is just really really difficult to look at their a couple of pictures of re of the coups that as bad as i ever pictured her in my mind when reading wizard and glass this was a step beyond. It's not bad. There's a lot of skill there. I just i thought it was over early grotesque so i read j lease name more the sub mariner comic in the nineties when i was it's way into comics what i liked about that series and his art was that it was very iconic and name or who's always always an angular superhero like he had very much a straight line facing and jaw. It worked well with the comic here. My biggest problem was that most was to these scenes seemed very static and i know comic books it in of themselves are stacked. They are single pictures are not animated. It's not a movie but good artists can make it seem like the characters are fluid motion and all of these seemed berry posed and getting back to your piece on like oh..

"Also discover that the kindle could access newspapers from the future using that feature wesley learn his ex girlfriend and his students girlfriend are going to die in a bus accident. Can they stop it and what about the kindle jay. This is a rip roaring crackerjack type of story <hes> after after the initial fantastical setup of a electronic device that can show you other novels and other realities it quickly becomes a race to rescue the two main characters significant others in a story. That's very reminiscent of eleven twenty to sixty three in sort of how the how the pacing works and how the setup works yeah you can see a lot of the bones that went into or maybe eleven twenty to sixty grew out of in this story and this is a really interesting book in terms of the fact that amazon approached king to write them a story to promote the kindle and he was all in he's like yeah i love gadgets emmy gimme gimme and he wrote a story about a kindle or kindle in three days in three days. Yeah yeah it's sorta. It's sort of funny and king is one who likes experimenting inning with format. I think <hes> you know he did the plant which was a serialized e book one of the one of that one i yeah he did the riding the bullet which i was also <hes> on early e-book he did the green mile which was serialized his back like in the olden days <hes> he did a few stories that were exclusive to audio book at first and yet well and i. I think what's interesting about when he does that. He realizes that the format can also drive how you approach the writing an impact the the story which is an interesting way of looking at it and i think when we started reading this you texted me and said wow this is a story that needs to be read on kindle. Even though it's been been published elsewhere afterwards i agree and i think i went old school for me and went to my old kindle to read this <hes> as opposed to picking up a book on and i think you read it on kindle as well. Yes yes yeah so as you said this was a will give you a little background for those who may not know the history this written exclusively for the amazon kindle. This story was published on february twelfth. Two thousand nine eventually an audio book of kirk came out in february of two thousand ten and it was read by holter graham and the only reason i mentioned that is because he's an actor whose first film was maximum overdrive directed by stephen king <hes> and he's also read the audiobook look for christine so he has multiple stephen king connections. Is that why holter graham is a household name a household name to this day <hes> king you had mentioned earlier about how he was excited about writing a book for the kindle about the kindle because he loves gadgets but in the end he also said i did did it because it was interesting. I'm fairly prolific. It took three days and i've made about eighty thousand dollars. You can't get that for short fiction for playboy or anyone else. It's ridiculous. It's so transparent though is like in what other way could i have made eighty thousand dollars off three days work. I know like maybe if you're on jeopardy. You know like that's the only other way you could do it. <hes> so you had pointed out that this was written for the kindle but it was actually the kindle to write a second generation amazon had had pretty good success with the first kindle and then i think they made like the kindle d._x. Or something they made a bigger version and that didn't sell as well than the they <unk> decided all right. We're going to release the kindle too and it was smaller it had like a more compact keyboard and it costs a little less a little bit easier to afford and this was part of the story was ardo that promotion <hes> i believe the story was released on almost the exact same day as the kindle two as announced so is available to purchase through the kindle store. You know the same day you could buy this new kindle and i say it's a little less expensive because in two thousand nine the price of the kindle at launch was three hundred fifty nine dollars yikes which yeah it's a lot of money for <hes> non-necessary surrey electric gadget one that didn't even like no audio no touchscreen. I don't think right like it was all right yeah. It was just a black and white simple gadget for. I'm just reading books. Yeah i mean we can try to justify thousand dollar smartphones today because they connect us to everything in every way right yeah so it's still are too much money. From what <hes> you know this thing. We put in our pocket but for something that just read e books nearly four hundred dollars. It's a a lot to <hes> to ask but they still sold a lot of them and <hes> but also made me wonder like did wesley purchase of this device for spite for raking up with his girlfriend <hes>. It seemed like maybe maybe that was like one of the least realistic things that happened in the story really goes so you know college professor who probably doesn't have a lot of disposable income. He's gonna drop four hundred dollars on a kindle just to get back at his koskoff right yeah <hes> so in addition to coming out on kindle <hes> in two thousand fifteen it was later published in bazaar of bad dreams which is a collection of stories by king and what is interesting about that is that there was significant revisions made eight to the story as king tends to like to do a number of them are along the lines of hey. I don't need to explain what it kindle is because they've been around for for at least six years now. It's not this fancy new gadget that where the books come from they come out of thin air professor smith knows that i wonder if it can connect to the internet the internet you say. I'm gonna post an article in the show notes that talks through some of the changes. There's a couple of places where where things are trimmed out and characters name is changed <hes> but i think the most significant deletion is about the j._f._k. Assassination and alternate alternate timelines are probably because he knew that eleven twenty to sixty three was on the way so he he did want to repeat himself there so i'll post that we did not do a side by side reading this and both jay and i read the original version and not the revised version from bizarre bed green so for all of you completed out there. That's where we stand. You know this story was i guess kind of falls into the category of like fixing the future by knowing the past. You're the time travel story. If you will and king has explored that from a couple of different angles the most <hes> i guess direct version of that story is eleven twenty to sixty three three where the character actually travels back in time right to change something that will happen in his perspective of the future but i really liked his twist in the dead zone where where he makes a character able to see the future and he sees a dark future coming so he tries to stop it so he doesn't travel through time but what he can see ahead and it's really an exploration of the same idea though like if you could go back in time and change something tragic would you do it earn and at what cost and eleven twenty to sixty three is more direct in that and this is kind of like the dead zone a little bit where the kindle gives them at view in the future and now what are they going to do and at what cost agreed have you ever seen. The christopher walken saturday night live skit that mocks the dead zone tastic. You could get an ice cream headache right here. It's gonna hurt really bad. The best part of that is every time he grabbed somebody. The dramatic music plays and you're like oh all right so so you know the stories interesting because in some ways i said it before i think cracker jack's the way to go like it is a very quick read. I was rushing through at the idea like the whole idea of like hey look a kindle that can read alternate books and then tell you the future and then this this race against time to to save the girlfriends. You're like wow this is really good and well written for the most part but there are some parts of it just sort sort of light drop off and when you spend too much time thinking about it. It's just like <hes> you could sorta. Tell the king pry with this often three days and again jeff and i have a tendency to want to give king a higher standard clear than most things i if i've written this i would be proud of myself for the rest of my life could be like hey look at this great idea came up with and it's well written and people are gonna love to read it and then but for king it's like <hes> yeah. They're so corny any stuff in here. Yeah it definitely did feel like it was a little craigie around the edges. It was like he wrote it in three days. Nobody edited it but i'm sure jeff. Bezos was happy to write that eighty thousand dollar check so song so good so one of the things that i thought was interesting. Is this whole concept concept of earn novel so you know there is a a in the san man which stephen king is a fan of by neil gaiman <hes> a the the concept that that morpheus the lord of dreams is also the lord of stories in his realm. There is a library that contains all the books that authors never wrote to go into this library and see the books that could have been written by by authors and king sort of explores that here with the fact that there's all these novels is that other that hemingway would have written our shakespeare would have written if he had had time but the one constant that the main character wesley smith notices is that there tends to be the and earn novel is he calls it sort of the one book that is always constant throughout that person's oeuvre whether they're in our world or or three million four hundred seventy six nineteen and it made jay at least come up with an idea of like what would stephen king's novel be what's the one book that would transcend space and time in all realities. I liked giving myself that that challenge is to think of of all the books that he's written and the ones that i that i am familiar enough with which one would always pop up no matter what happens to stephen king in these other herbs right. If you wrote only crime novels he would still write this one book if he didn't write it all he would write this one book or something yeah or if he died after just one. It's this book and <hes>. I think it's the shining it's it's an important important book in his body of work. It's probably not the most important certainly not the most famous but i think that there's so much of himself. In that book it's one of the books that he wrote that was largely about his own struggles with addiction and i think he was trying to exercise is some of these darker things in his own psyche by creating the character of jack torrance and i suspect that no matter what king ever accomplished otherwise he always would have written this book for that reason so when you put this challenge to me my immediate thought was the stand and then i struggled with well. Maybe if it's not the standard is it the dark tower or is it. It could even be salems mm slot and the more i thought about it. I realized that you had the correct answer that the i think the shining i've thought about it a couple of different times over the past win and it totally is the shining because let's say for instance. He didn't become a horror writer at all. He could still write the shining. It's not it it. It has horrific parts parts but it's not a horror book. It's a psychological thriller. If he became a literary a total literary writer this could be the one book that stood out is sort of lay he he's he's message michigan. John wrote little bit by by doing this and the fact that you said it's so personal to him <hes> i could totally see this as being his novel. I think that you've probably probably stuck stuck a pin in the right book here so you wanna know prize great skill set it on my shelf next to all all of my other nice so the other thing that both you.

"two guys" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books

"You can also email us at two guys dark tower at gmail.com in this episode. We'll cover the movie adaptation of hearts in Atlantis. Let's start the show per description on I._M._D._b.. Hearts in Atlantis is the story of widowed Liz Garfield Oath Davis and her son Bobby <music> Anton Yeltsin when mysterious stranger Ted broad again Sir Anthony Hopkins enters their lives. That's it that's a Scott. It's all I._M._D._B.. Says it's pretty straightforward. I guess it makes sense in addition to hope Davis Anthony Hopkins and Anton Yeltsin Elchin this movie also starred Meco Burum not sure if I'm pronouncing her name properly she played Carol Gerber and David Morse as the adult adult version of Bobby Garfield along with Celia Weston who played Alana Styles Celia Weston wasn't exactly a top billed member of the cast but I thought she was worth calling out because she played Alana styles and I thought that was a pretty important character for bobby. Even though she wasn't in the movie for very long she might have only had the one seen right. Yeah I think so <hes> she'd have a speaking role in the second scene when bobby goes back and gets the money that's right yeah you can see her but she doesn't say yeah and this movie was directed by Scott Hicks. I don't know what else he's done. I don't think anything else connecting with Stephen King Stories now he did snow falling on Cedars was the other sort of big movie he did around the same time <hes> not as important but of interest to me is he did a lot of inaccessible videos so he came up with that whole dropping the the cue you cards routine. <hes> yeah came up with that definitely not Bob Dylan. I don't know what you're talking about. It and the screenwriter is probably more interesting than the director <hes> as it is William Goldman who also Hollywood royalty goodwill bill will he wrote the screenplay for misery another Stephen King adaptation one that had critical acclaim and he also wrote the Princess Bride both the book in the movie yeah amongst many of his other works but obviously those are the two that are probably of interest to our readers. I saw myself a lot of similarities between maybe not a lot that might I I saw myself a few similarities between the princess bride movie as well as this movie and maybe I was more apt to look for them them knowing that <hes> bill golden did the screenplay but we had also mentioned when we discussed low many in yellow coats how the the importance of Bobby's kiss really sort of mirrored Wesley and buttercup S- kiss and you know how it was one of the five five greatest kisses of all time and in this movie and in the story <hes> Toboggan says that this is the kiss that you'll measure all others by we saw a similarity there so we had seen the similarity before I saw the movie so I thought that that was interesting. It's an interesting connection because in the content yeah there's a lot of overlap but king wrote that that line in his book and Goldman found a way to shoehorn it into the screenplay yep he wasn't like I need to write a line about important kisses everyone in my screenplays his <hes> but I like the connection nevertheless yeah I also thought there were a couple of other connections to other Stephen King Stories through the actors David Morris who as I mentioned played the adult bobby was also a guard in the Green Mile and he was also had a starring role in <hes> uh the Lingo leers which is a TV mini series adaptation or an episode of a mini series. I think forget David Morris's Mrs in three Stephen King Adaptations that I'm aware of and I called out Celia Weston because she was also in under the Dome many years later after making this movie so got to Multiple Stephen King Adaptation alums in this film yeah <hes> I we'll tell you out of those three Mile Langa leaders and under the Dome I saw what are probably the two worst ones laniers in under the Dome and I've never I've never actually actually seen the green mile all while really yeah. I know it's critically acclaimed. It's got Tom Hanks. It's got David Morse yes Michael Dunkin's ends best work. I think people really liked <hes> his his work in that <hes> and I remember working at a drugstore that did movie rentals and we rented that movie out all the time people loved it and I've never ever seen it and I really enjoyed the you know the book I bought each one of those little green mile books in paperback as they were released one month or however however that went going down to the divall and go into my Walden Books and picking those up <hes> Walden books but I've never seen the green mile well I think it was interesting this phase and <hes> I know we're GonNa talk about the trailer here in a minute Jay but there were a number of Stephen King adaptations I I think probably following the Shawshank redemption and how even though it wasn't a blockbuster in the movie theaters when it got to V._H._S. and D._V._d.. It rented out a lot. <hes> it became a cult movie. It's you know it's on cable all the time. It's always in the top whatever I list of I._M._D._b.. T._V. People love that movie the Shawshank Redemption <hes> it's really well acclaimed and I I got the sense that in this timeframe that people were trying to take exc Stephen King Books and adapting them in that sort of style you know all sort of drawing on the past <hes> in a little bit of sentimentality and almost using them like Oscar Bait right like Shashlik apt pupil has put Shawshank redemption and <hes> for sure then Green Mile and then this movie. I think they're all sort of a piece right looking back at the past and you know it really started probably with stand by me yes but all all these sort of looking back they probably appealed the baby boomers and <hes> just relationships light on the horror late on the supernatural just enough there to to to still have some connection but really focusing on story which is what King is really good at and I think that king has always had that reputation of being the horror Meister as one of the reviewers that we read in a previous episode talked about but I feel like that always precedes him even in the movie adaptations that he's he's not involved in if it says Stephen King anywhere to do with the movie I think a lot of people immediately go to horror. This must be a scary movie and there are so many Stephen King books that have elements of horror that have some really dark things in them but they're generally not Har- and this is certainly one of them. There are some pretty scary moments in the book especially when Bobby encounters the low men directly up that is really frightening stuff for Bobby and he's in some real danger but but a lot of that is not in the movie therefore this just feels like like a cousin to stand by me. You know it has the right age ranges. It has the right time period. It has bullies with Batson <unk> like there. There's a lot there that's in common and it totally works <hes> but I wonder if that assumption of horror horror this assumption of scariness might have always kept the box office numbers low on these adaptations well. I would imagine that the trailer did do any help admit and Mickey the Box Office Success O._J.. Pointed out the trailer to be about a week ago said take a look at this <hes>. It's amazing. How different for trailers are in twenty years? Yeah just it looked like a hallmark movie trailer to me to sort of the the melodramatic music the cursive writing across the screen <hes> just these odd shots that sort of fade in and out it was <hes> Schlocky to say the least and not did not in the horror schlocky sort of in the melodramatic schlocky way yeah and even the sequence of the clips were just. They seemed very haphazard. It was like someone who had not really ever made a trailer before was given this task for the first job in all right quick make trailer use any of the scenes from the movie and you're you're good. We'll just put some music underneath it. Call today and I don't remember how big of a deal Anthony Hopkins was at this point in his career. I I mean it was ten years after it was nominated for sounds lamb so I mean he was a big star. I don't know if he still was a big star at this point but you know he had been nominated for Multiple Academy Awards for <hes> remains of the day as well as <hes> silence of the lambs so he was a known quantity and this is definitely presented ended as a vehicle for his star power but the way the trailer makes him look it just like I don't know like it might have been just the version that I found one but the seemed like even the resolution of the video was low to the point where if I didn't no Anthony Hopkins like I might not realize that this is that guy that impressed me in silence silence of the lambs or that impressed me in Howards end. You know what what who is. This guy is just like an old guy in a movie yeah what will link to the trailer so you experience it herself but <hes> Fun Times so let's let's get into the movie Jay this. We should preface the fact the movie's called hearts in Atlantis but this this is the low men in yellow coats movie. Yes it is ninety five percent of that story <hes> there's a Tad Tad Tad little bit of of why we're in Vietnam you see a newspaper chose that saw John has died on a highway <hes> and there's a little bit of the heavenly shades of night are falling going in that a glove appears in in in the older bobby's house but it is mostly low men in yellow coats which is fine because that's that's probably the story in the book that is the most adaptable for film and I'm sure that they just called it Hartson Atlanta's so that they could reference the Steven King Book because they don't want to say this is we already discussed are low men in yellow coats is not a great name for a story or a book by like or movie yeah definitely definitely after yeah but you can't say like Oh based on the boast based on these short story low men in Yellow Coats for the book arts and Lazett just too much to say so they'd call and they slip been <hes> Goldman slips at hearts in Atlantis light which the way it slipped in even J. where bobby and sully John or having their own conversation at the end of the porch playing monopoly I think maybe or something and then it's just sort of Anthony Hopkins having a one on one scene with Carol Gerber and saying yes I I remember the youth is not just it just comes off as for standing and it's it's like one of those <hes> fake pepperidge Ridge farm commercials from the simpsons but you know overall it is a pretty dead on adaptations of low men in yellow coats with the exception of there's no dark tower piece in it right. There's <hes> yet because the story is told primarily from Bobby's perspective we don't really know who the low men are and why they're chasing him. It's hinted at the end of the towards the end of the movie that there some sort of government agents aunts who want <hes> Ted because of his powers that they're gonNA use him to potentially spy on the communists that at least that's the impression that Ted gives bobby lobby <hes> but we're really not given any more information than that and really that's the big change from the book but the movie hits. It's most of the major beats of the story dead on the relationship between Ted and Bobby is the core of the movie just like it is in the book <hes> the strange relationship that bobby has with his mother and the <hes> blossoming romance between Bobby and care. I mean all those pieces are there. It's it's a really good close adaptation of of the story and overall <hes> I'm going to say I thought the movie worked well. I think the acting performances are are good. <hes> Ebony Hopkins is not who I would have pictured being ted. <hes> I did not picture Ted is being sort of average average height stocky guy with a British accent. That's not the Ted in my mind but no he is really good. I mean at the Newsflash Sean Picks Anthony Hopkins is good actor controversial opinion everybody but I you know they always tell good actors like don't work with with animals or children and but Anton Yeltsin is really good in this as well. I thought I thought he yeah He. He nails <hes> bobby. There is a depth to him that you don't see in other child actors all the time. I think he's able to get that across. It's a short movie. It's only about an hour and a half long and yet I believe leave the relationship that the two of them had it doesn't come across his four store rushed in any way which there's the potential to <hes> I largely agree i. I think that the movie works I think that <hes> and I think the things that it removes from the Book and leaves out of the adaptation some of them. I think the movie suffers four. I'll get into that in a check but I think it makes some other tweaks that I feel kind of land a lot better in the movie than in the Book One of the best examples is when and bobby has his final confrontation with Liz Garfield after Ted has been taken away by the low men and bobby throws the money..

"two guys" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books

"The. Welcome everyone to two guys to the dark tower. Kane a podcast where we discussed the characters connections deeper, meanings of Stephen king's magnum opus the dark tower. I'm Jay Rousseau. And I'm Shawn Macur. You can find more information about the podcast at two guys to the dark tower came dot com. You can also Email us at two guys dark tower at gmaiLcom in this episode. We'll cover heavenly shades of night are falling in hearts in Atlantis as well as wrap up. Our discussion of the book, let's start the show. Bobby Garfield returns to his hometown for the first time since he and his mother moved away forty years, earlier, silly John's funeral is a nominal reason is there, but as he visits different areas of town, and then encounters Carol Gerber, not the knee Schoonover. We realized that he is reflecting on his relationships with Carol and Ted broad again, the magic of the universe, and memory in history. Nice day, this is the fifth story in Hartson, Atlanta's, although this story is so slight that it's not even really a story as much. It is just sort of epilogue tacked on at the end that ties up the loose ends of the first four stories in particular wraps up. What was introduced in the first story low men in yellow coats? Yes, I kind of think of it like a coda. And really this coda if we want to refer to it is, dad is about maybe leaving behind the past as our characters have moved on from not only what happened to them when they were children. But what has happened to them since they were adults? And in turn the whole idea of what happened to America in the sixties as a result of Vietnam. Yes, bobby's final act of placing the baseball mitt back, under the, the grove of trees. He slightly acknowledging the sort of science fiction element of what he is experiencing here that there's some sort of weird thing going on that he can explain chooses the just let happen. But it's also him relinquishing his past that baseball glove is a bright, shiny reminder of his childhood. And he hasn't had that baseball glove since he was a child. And we know the journey that, that glove has taken all the people who have owned it in traveled all the way to Vietnam and back in and things like that inherit is back in bobby's possession, and the first chance he gets. He sends it away again, this because he doesn't wanna maybe live in the past anymore, or he doesn't want to risk returning to the past in any way. He's he is, as you say, leaving the past behind the. And actually out of all the characters in the book, Carolyn, Bobby of probably moved on from the past a little bit better than the other characters. Carol has created a whole new persona and identity after she is presumed dead. And when Bobby wants to talk to her about what happened. She doesn't want to she's like, no, that's in the past. I don't talk about that anymore, and Bobby, when we last saw him was leading a troubled early adulthood, in and out of juvie and, you know, a strange relationship with his mother. But he find out his gotten married, and has become a carpenter and also dime, and we don't see Bobby dwelling on the events of the past, except when he comes back to town hits all the old haunts and remembers. Oh, yeah. There is the restaurant where I were ten is all the low men or eighty there's the place where I got work, Carol got beat up and there's mild apartment at cetera. Neither one of them talks about what's happened in the ensuing years. And what their lives have been like something just occur. To me in terms of the structure here, because at the end of hearten, Atlantis that story takes place all in the concurrent moments of the college years. And then jumps all the way to the present a where we encounter Pete Riley skip. Kirk as older men skips in the hospital. It's sort of like a retelling of the of win. Stokely Jones is in the hospital, when they were in college or of that moment, we get a KOTA built into that story, the story happens, and then there's the coda moment we see where these men have ended up much later in their lives, and who they became and we get a little bit of a taste of what happened in the years between right? Or why didn't king structure low men in yellow coats that way and have this KOTA between Bobby and Carol? And I think my answer to that, is that king didn't wanna. Giveaway. What happened to Carol great? And it would have been too easy for us to just find out that things turned out, okay for Bobby after all immediately after the events of Ted's of duck Shen than Ted sending him the rose petals rights, like, oh, all right now, bobby's of forty year, he's forty years older and is doing. Okay, it right. I think having the separate having all the way at the end of the book after all the other stories is far more powerful from a storytelling perspective, so sort of answering my question with that. But it's interesting that we had to wait until here for this almost not long enough to be its own story piece, a lot of it is not just we find out bobby's, okay? Or we find out, it's really the relationship between Bobby and Carol that we find out is okay because we have assumed that. Carol his died, and is no longer alive. And that's what Bobby thinks until what happens with sully, John. And specifically the fact that he gets the glove which has a message from Ted in it. And that's when he thinks, oh, Carol might still be around. And if I go back home maybe show, meet me there, it

I'm Jay Rousseau and I'm Shawn mcgurk. You can find more information about the podcast at two guys to the dark tower came dot com. You can also Email us at two guys dark tower at gmaiLcom in this episode. We'll cover why were in Vietnam in Hartson Atlantis. Let's start the show. Sully John attended the funeral fellow Vietnam veteran, dick Gano, which causes him to reminisce about his time in Vietnam, in particular, he thinks about a helicopter crash in the ensuing firefight that put his units, endanger. And then an incident later in the day when soldiers including Ronnie, Mallon Fant terrorize village before Lieutenant defend Baker also attending to funeral as another soldier shot before the incident escalates to my Lai levels sully John is haunted by Vietnamese woman. That Malan fan bayonets to death seeing her throughout the rest of his life after leaving the funeral. Sully John is stuck in traffic jam, where he hallucinates items falling from the sky, including Bobby Garfield baseball glove in a low man's yellow coat. The ghost of the Vietnamese woman speaks for the first time saying show keep sully. John safe, the hallucination stops and sully. John dies in the driver's seat of his car with Bobby Garfield glove in his lap. But they guy covered everything that happened in this story J. Yeah. That's pretty much the full text. And even reading that you could see that there is a little lot lot of confusing, because there's a lot of flashbacks in the stories not told linearly as we sort of jumped back and forth from solely John going to the funeral back to Vietnam being at the funeral reminiscing about things that happened in Vietnam than hallucinating things that happen. And so there's a lot of time jumps as well as back and forth between what's real and what's not real. In addition, those flashbacks. Yeah. And I kind of Sirte feel like it's still up for debate as to whether or not that was a hallucination because the baseball glove appears and remains, so that part's that part's definitely real. And everybody seems to be undamaged on hurt in alive after the fact. But how did the baseball glove kit there? Yeah. That's a really good question that I'm not sure I know the answer to, and it's not even just the baseball glove that he possibly could have created out of his mouth. Mind, solely John because it's the one that's been changed by blind Willie and has bobby's name, scratched out and rewritten. And it's an it's been aged, it's not the it's not the version that sully John would have remembered he remembers details of the or he sees details. The glove that are how the glove is now as we learned in the last story. So it is more than just a remembrance or something that he dreamed into being it seems like it is the actual real glove. Yeah. From this time period, so. And we'll loop back to that a little bit more when we get to our dark towers Fini's exciting, but we want to start off with the fact that soley, John is still in Vietnam, even though the war's been over for twenty five years, when the story takes place, the epigraph in the first line of the story are when someone dies, you think about the past, and this story starts with sully. John getting ready to attend a funeral. And he's. Thinking about the past is pagawa has died now. He's thinking about everything that happened to him in his last days in Vietnam, and effected its hat him. And when he in defend Baker are talking in the alleyway outside the funeral parlor, they kind of come up with this idea that the war is over until everybody who fought in it is died. So that's why that's why they're still in Vietnam. They, they never left because the war continues for as long as they do, and it's kind of like something you reminded me of the other day, like there's that saying that you don't really die until everybody who knew as forgotten you or has died themselves as long as you are in somebody's memory, you still exist in, in a way in the Vietnam, war, maybe most wars, maybe all wars are kind of, like that, that the soldiers who come back from those wars are haunted, by the war in, they can never really escape it. You're never not in Vietnam. Tom for the rest of their lives to the point where one of them suggests, maybe everything after that helicopter ride out of, of the was, it has been a hallucination like bridges dreaming this. We're in a recovery ward somewhere at hospital. Getting patched up and everything the last you know, decades have been just a, a drug induced dream. Yes. Another thing that continues in this story, or that is a continuation from previous sections of arts in Atlantis is the us versus them motif, here, we get it in the form of veterans and non veterans, and it used to be like, during the story of hearts in Atlanta's a lot of it was the people who were for the war versus the people who protested the war now

"two guys" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books

"The. Welcome everyone to two guys to the duct our podcast. We discussed the characters connections deeper, meanings of Stephen king's magnum opus, the dark tower. I'm Jay Rousseau and I'm Shawn McCoy. You can find more information about the podcast at two guys to the dark tower came dot com. You can also Email us at two guys dark tower at g mail dot com. In this episode. We'll cover blind Willie found in Hartson Atlantis. Let's start the show. It's nineteen Eighty-three and Vietnam veteran Bill Sherman appears to live a comfortable life in suburban Connecticut. But as we observe him through his day, he actually appears to lead a double, and even triple life. Begging on midtown Manhattan street corner as he pretends to be blind. The reason for this seems to be his form of penance for his involvement in a beating of a young girl. Carol Gerber whose life. He has followed by keeping news clippings of her protests of the war that have become more and more radical and seem to have led to her death. The story ends as it begins with Bill in bed with his wife, who seems to know how he makes money, not my best recap of stories, Jay. But I think it hits some of the major points, there's actually a lot more happening in the story than what I said. But at the same time, there's really not a lot that happens in the story. It's just one day and Bill sherman's life. And we see what's going on. But even the little bit of conflict that is introduced Bill is worried that he's going to be found out by the policemen that he plays a bribe to so that he can stay on the street corner in that conflict is not resolved. It's just sort of a thought in bills head towards the end of the story like oh, yeah. I think I might have an idea. On how to deal with it, but it's not fully spelled out, but really sort of a day in the life of this guy. Yeah. I think that was actually a great recap considering what the, the story was all about. I could easily see that on a dust cover, or the back of a DVD box. So don't sell yourself, so short while not sure this is as good of a story to be made into a movie anytime anytime soon, Jay somebody decided to make maximum overdrive. I can't believe that they wouldn't adapt. This, of course, the person who made that decision was Stephen King us high cocaine at the time. So. I'm certain whatever studio executive green lit. It was also high cocaine at the time. In fact, they might have had the same dealer. Well, unlike the other stories in this book, this one had been previously published. Yeah. It was published in Antonius, an import literary journal, which never reached more than about ten thousand readers or subscribers. But in its approximately twenty five years, that it ran it published a wide variety of authors and poets fact, it was founded by Paul Bowles who is a famous writer, his own. Right. He gave sort of the seed money to get this up and running, and blind Willie was actually published in the final issue of this journal, which was in nineteen ninety four so king Kildee tasks. I think it was the other way around that they knew that the journal was coming to an end. In fact, the editor said something along the lines of I want to get out before I get too old to blind, too tired lose my hair. So I'm going to get out at this point and stopped publishing it. And in that last. Issue. He really gathered up a lot of well known authors for the final issue. In addition to king, two of my favorite authors of all time, Paul Austin, Don delillo, actually might like them better than king. If you can believe that for a different type of writing. But to my favorite writers, Margaret, Atwood appeared in the last issue, Richard Ford. Nadine Gordimer Joyce, Carol Oates. Jane smiley Tobias Wolff those are some of the names that I recognized just by going through the table content. So they did gather up some pretty big names for that final issue including king, and king's entry was blind Willie. However, and j you might be interested in this. And hopefully our listeners are too. It is quite different from the story that is in Hartson Atlantis. Yeah. When I was reading blind Willie for this podcast. I knew that it had been published before. It appeared in Hartson Atlantis. But I didn't know what the, the text was in that original publication. So I started asking myself along the way. How many details did king change to adapt, this for hearts in Atlantis was very little. Did he have this idea of the Carol Gerber figure in blind? Willie's life was she the reason for his penance end acts of contrition, those kinds of things were kind of top of mind for me. And when you shared some of the details of the original version of blind Willie, it became quickly apparent that none of the hearts in Atlantis stuff is in it, basically. Right. And therefore, king added all of that stuff in just so that it would better integrate within the larger group of stories. And I think it's to our benefit end to the stories benefit. I think giving Willie a more concrete reason to do some of the things he does act, the way that he does or the choices he makes his life beyond the attaching those things to Carol attaching those things to his. His time in Vietnam. In a very specific way and connecting it to some of the other people in who he met in Vietnam, including silly, John. I think it makes Willie a more meaningful character

"two guys" Discussed on Two Guys to the Dark Tower Came: A Podcast about Stephen King and His Books

"The. Welcome everyone to two guys to the dark tower Kane a podcast or we discussed the characters connections deeper, meanings of Stephen king's magnum opus the dark tower. I'm Jay Rousseau and I'm Shawn mcgirt. You can find more information about the podcast at two guys to the dark tower came dot com. You can also Email us at two guys dark tower at gmaiLcom in this episode. We will finish the title story from hearts in Atlantis parts. Twenty three through forty four. Let's start the show. Loses virginity to Carol Gerber, and then she leaves college or thanksgiving break. Pete decides to get on track with the schoolwork. But once he gets back to school. It's back to hearts for him antiwar anti LBJ graffiti appears on the side of a dorm. And the obvious suspect is Stokely Jones, but despite most of the dorm, laughing at his misfortune when Stokely slips and falls into a puddle of water, they have a Spartacus moment and stick up form skipping. Pete us the opportunity to quit hearts and stay in school. The story ends with an older Pete visiting skip in the hospital and reminiscing. When you say it like that, it seems a little dry Jay, but it was an interesting story, and I enjoyed it and I was turning pages throughout. But ultimately, this isn't like low men in yellow coats where there was a build up to a very tense and dramatic moment when the, the low men confront and take Ted away, another dramatic moment when the boys are picky, on Caroline, and Bobby needs to save her here. We just sort of get an everyday regular story that AMAN is reminiscent, gone really small moments in his life, losing virginity playing cards with his buddies at school sticking up for somebody it becomes a full story. And he kinda yada, yada over some of the more important things later in his life when he like when he took his, his protesting even further when he got arrested in beaten up and things like that, he just glosses over that part. Because it's not central to this story, but to your point, unlike lamenting yellow coats, that built up to this great crescendo. This is more like the main character walking to the edge of the cliff kind of hanging out there for a minute. And then just deciding the walk away from the edge of the cliff, again the cliffs there, but he was able to just move away from it. And he did and not, not quite the same stakes. No. And you your point I mean, he walks away from the cliff and deady, basically walks over to a riot over there, that was on the other side of that he was that he was standing on. And you know gets beaten by the cops and gets thrown in jail and. His best friend, who he played cards with in college becomes a famous artist. And, you know, sort of world renowned then has a heart attack. But all that is secondary and off page and the key moment. With him reuniting with skip is just them at the end saying, you know, much like the ending of low men in yellow coats, where Bobby in his mother sort of say, hey, we tried retried. It's just the two of them saying the same sort of thing like we did the best. We could on. It's just you know, male bonding piece at the end. But again, not these big dramatic moments that you might think of normally and again, king does that stuff. Well, one of one of the best loved movies of Stephen king's at adaptations is stand by me. And you know, there's not much in that movie. That is dramatic. Right. There's, there's a train sing seen when the running across the trestle. But what would you think of that movie? And remember it, it's to sort of. The boys hanging out and being together. I guess getting leeches on their body. But yeah, that does have that does have a lot in common with this. In, in terms of the central character of the story is also the author writing about the story as reminiscence, and stand by me is constructed the same way. So we start with the adult author in his studied, working have the flashback of the movie and end back with the adult author again, the great, Richard Dreyfuss. Yes. But here we know that Pete Riley isn't going to go to Vietnam die because he is alive. Thirty three years later writing the story. Right. We at least know that much that's built into the structure. So there's no suspense there. But we don't know if he's going to fell out of school. We don't know what's gonna happen to all of his friends. We don't know that he's not going to end up in Vietnam. Right. And we and we definitely didn't know that it was going to. Throw himself fully into protesting the Vietnam, war and get into all sorts of crazy things from getting beaten up by the cops cetera. The happened after
