"Family was big on putting people in a sanitary use. Yeah, because it would have done you no help. By the way, they don't really help. They don't know multiple personality disorders, something that's really hard to deal with. I mean, Herschel Walker, the football player, had multiple personality disorder. And in the 70s, 80s, they kind of hit on it with civil, but they didn't really, like if they just made a movie out of it. They didn't really get into the actual problems that people faced with it. And a lot more people have it than people realize. Right. And in my time, my mom knew that something was up without because I had gotten hooked on old movies. Yes. When I was in high school, the black and whites that were on TV. And she said, one day she's that's when we had the old fashioned paper tea guy that Sunday paper. I love that. Happy days. I like reading those ones. Those were fun. You know, it's like, oh, I can't go out with my friends because this is going to be on. You know? Because I really was, you know, attached and to watching the movie, so I remember my mom had said, Gloria, there's, you know, a movie I would like to see you to watch. And she watched it with me, it was just three faces of me. Oh, yeah. That was just Joanne Woodward. And my mom, and I just looked at it, and my mom asked me, how do you feel afterwards? I don't know. But I, as I got older, you know, I had missed my entire junior year of high school. It was, it was a different personality. And when people tend to be in my senior year of talking with me, it's like, are you? And I lost quite a few friends, especially the girl, I had lunch with every single day, my niece and Friday gave me an entire school year. I didn't know who she was. It must have been hard. I mean, as a child, I mean, when you have something like a multiple personality disorder, and you're in public schools or in school, you know, it's difficult because all the kids don't understand what you're going through. And let's face it. Kids are mean. I mean, they don't want to be, but it's in their nature. If they don't understand something, they poke fun at it. You know? So that's what I've seen about children. I mean, actually, the kids, well, this was high school. Yeah, that was in my junior year of high school. Senior year that no one ever poked fun of me when I grew up. They just, you know, left me alone. And my ultimate personality went by my name and but what was really hard is that my senior year, I'm in a more difficult biology class. Yes. And it's like, I don't even know any of this stuff. Because the brain goes ahead and sees itself as different personalities. And the knowledge from, let's say, Sally Joe is not going to be in my mean personality. And with Julia learned is staying with Julia. So my learning, even though I still had a learning disability, it was, it was harder for me to get through class. I would have to study and cramp. And I just couldn't remember things because I wasn't I was dealing with a divided brain like trivial pursuit with all the different ways of the pie. That's where my family works. Yeah, that would be very difficult actually, because one personality retains the other one doesn't know what they retain. So that would be very difficult. So it's an inspiration that you've got through high school and you've done things you've done. You should be proud. I am and I integrated all the personalities years ago and this past year I ended up creating another one. I'm like, why? I was sitting and talking with someone and I'm hearing voices and I'm just like, and this is a month ago I'm like, who are you? Introducing, that would be rough. Yeah, I mean, you already have the personality you've already coped with and then to add another one. That would be difficult. It really was because on the integration you get all of the memories back and all of the trauma and everything comes back. So it's just like having a fresh memory and reliving all that abuse and trauma and whatever else all over again. And I thought, why did I create and I said, why did I create you? She said because you weren't feeling safe where you live. I said, I feel safe now. And I did get her integrated, I think, I hope. And also that I also started seeing things that were missing different things from this place. And yeah, that would be hard for me because I'm a person that I'm very everything has to be intricately put like everything has to be where it has to be. So another personality to come in and move something that would aggravate me to no end. I just wouldn't know what to do with myself because I have stuff here and it's right there and that's what it has to be and then if I went into another person and they came back and it was missing, I'd be like, what is going on? You know what I mean? That would drive me nuts. Would you like to wake up and find your teeth are missing? Oh, no. After in your hat. And I ended up asking where are my keys? Why are you being so mean to me? And I ended up going to the maintenance man where I was living, who bought me an extra key. So don't tell them because it will charge you. Yes. I can't find my keys. Well, I had it before you do it with me therapist that day and she said, I don't think they meant to be me. I would just be mischievous. I said, well, you know, I need my keys back. And the next morning they were back. In a different place. Right. They were being playful. Yeah, they were actually at my place on the table where normally I would put them on the table by the door. Right. So obvious that I would have seen my teeth if they would have been on my table because there was nothing else on it. So I have a question. What made you decide to publish self publish on Amazon? Because it's very difficult to get published through traditional publishing house. Oh, yes. Yes, it is. And also the royalties. Yes. I don't want three to 5 cents for each book. I understandable. I understandable. They gouge you. I do. And then they marked up, I know what they need to, you know, they're publishing prices math, but the answer can't really survive on it unless you start getting a big name like resume where you get a $1 million advance or $2 million advance to write your book and how often is that happening. And so I went ahead and I published self published with all of my books. I went through our universe in the beginning and then I transitioned over to Amazon because of the templates. Yes. I didn't have to hire graphic designer. I could assign my own book covers with pictures, and now what I like about the template is she can put in the book cover. You don't have to do the spine or the back anywhere in the template on the man if he does it for you. That's very nice. That's right. It is. That's great. Does Amazon help promote the book? No, they don't. No? So you have to self promote. Just like you do when you're with a regular publishing house, all publishing house does is put it on their website. It's okay, that's the way next as much as we're published as we're going to promote your book. The days of and you still have to do book signings. The days of the.

"Then where would he need to travel in order to start with these comments from let's say hey, or it's like then they need to travel to Chicago or they came in to Chicago and then they have to go somewhere else to start. So that was that's where I was able to start my journey of his life in doing that. And quite a few of them wanted to live off grid and some of them wanted more modern conveniences. I won't go into which one he did so by the book. Yeah. Now don't give us spoilers here. So we're just going to give a teaser. So I actually can relate to that the journey because my family came from Poland and they came through Ellis island, went up to Minnesota, migrated down to Chicago, and my family's ancestry basically is from Poland to Chicago and then to Massachusetts. So I get that adventure. There is a station up in Minnesota that does migration, immigrations. Isn't there? I don't know. I think there is. I think this Ellis island and I think there's another one up in Minnesota. Because at the time that dick Jorgensen emigrated, he had to come in through a different one. So I didn't look at anything modern. I just looked at the time frame of when he came over with his father, understandable. So your bestselling novel is navigating life with multiple personality disorder, which you have said, correct? So was that difficult as a child growing up that did affect you? In a second need more as an adult than is a child. I remember my mom coming into the room and she was asking me who are you talking to? I'm taught because she would hear me carrying on a conversation and then she was here at different voice. Yes. And she was in the kitchen and I was in the living room playing with my toys. It was a man. I think it was just before being able for a kid. And my mom comes in and sees me there, but in my head, I could see there was another person in it, and it was just like, just talking with my inside friends and she just looked at me. So she sort of knew that something was going on, that she always treated me like a dream. You have to, of course. Yes, you do. Her family was big on putting people in a sanitary use..

"Doing it in the houses. They're doing it on trails. I've gone hiking in the white mountains. Yeah. I don't even find you. No, I wouldn't suggest it now because this person is killing people. And it's just really sad. It's really sad that this family went out for a casual stroll and were murdered. Murdered. I mean, one day you're here and one day you're not. It's like, were you working in New Hampshire in the time of the Mount Vernon murders? No. Oh, those were brutal. So I don't know if we have any New Hampshire listeners out there. Mount Vernon, New Hampshire, right next to Amherst and milford. I think it was 2007 or ten. I was still in high school. There were these crazy murders, this group of gang, I will call them a gang of kids broken to this house, killed this woman. Just hacked her up for no reason, robbed it. And then killed the dog. Well, try to kill the daughter, cut off her leg. And she pretended to play dead until the cops came. Still alive, still kicking. But talk about brutal, that like shock. So I'm from a town of you over and it sent shockwaves when it happened because everyone was, it was the same thing. It was like block your doors. These people are coming. Yeah, it's like the tape Bianca murr is in California. I mean, same exact thing. They broke in and killed these people. I mean, like, butcher them. Killers are out there. Yeah, you got to be careful. You never know. And I work on route one. Well, I did. And that travels all the way up to New Hampshire all the way down to Florida. They say that working on that strip, you'll come across at least one to two serial killers a year on that script. That makes sense because aren't a lot of serial killers not saying all truckers are CO2 colors, but a lot of them tend to be because of the transient lifestyle. Yeah, and the easy transportation from one location to another. They can just haul butt down the highway. And dump the body and if they kill someone in the Hampshire, throw it in the car, bring it all the way down to say Massachusetts and drop the body. They don't have to be located where they kill the person. That's so crazy. I mean, that's so crazy. And I mean, so many people get away with murder every day. Yeah, yeah, it's crazy. And back to this one in New Hampshire that's just going on. I thought, ballistics would indicate who was doing this. This is yeah, okay. This is what I don't understand. How do we have so much technology and so much funding for these people to catch them? And then no one gets caught. Yeah, my wife was saying that the person could make their own bullets. Oh yeah, you can actually 3D print bullets. Yeah. And she said that it probably has some kind of military training. And like I said, she's really into this. And when I first read this article, I was talking to her. And they didn't say just Wendy. They just said, Wendy and Steven. So I was talking to her. She said, well, most killers stay in their race. If they don't go out and venture out of the race. So she goes to probably a white guy that's doing this. Then I found the real name, which was just windy. And then she was like, oh, that was a whole new wrench in it. You know, she's like, this person was black. So you just don't know. You don't know. But most serial killers are white guys. Yeah. Yeah, not that you like the fact that that's true, but it's true. Wait, white people are nuts. White people are insane and they feel they can get away with it. Right? But except for the one girl in Florida that was doing all The Killers, the killings. She was a serial killer in Florida, she killed all those men. Oh, aline wuornos. Yeah, but she was killing men that were harming women. So I think she gets a pass. Yeah. Yeah, she did. She did kill a lot of people. And I did watch the movie, and it was I liked it. I thought it was really good. Sir? Yeah, it was a good movie. And she does. And it read a little job in that. Yeah, I believe also Nicole Ricci, I think, did a remake of the Lindsey Borden murders. Sorry, Nicole, if there's no other. All right, so Christina Ricci. I'm old and I'm not up to these new actresses now. So I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Wednesday Adams. You know who she is.

"Alibis. These police really fumbling to that. Yeah, they dog this. So then Abby and Lizzie, Emma and Lizzie, when they're asked about Abby, they're like, that's not my mother. Well, yeah, it's stepmom. So that's not my mother. Even though she's killed, but they used to call her mother until recent events happened. So things changed drastically when it comes to that. Money changes people, right? No, during this situation, Lizzie is stone cold, no emotion doesn't cry. I mean, has no kind of like, oh my God, my father, or nothing like she's just like, yep, it happened. They're dead. I mean, and they're kind of throws red flags. You know, because they're like, well, wait a minute. Yeah, your father's dead. You got butchered. And you were in the house. Now, mind you, this is happening while everybody's in the house. So she's trying to make people believe that someone came in the house, killed the mother, killed the father, while she was there and never knew nothing. That doesn't make sense. It's totally left it didn't kill her. It didn't kill her? What? Now, when the search is done, they find a pill of bloody rags in the basement. Who had access to the basement. Right? But Lizzie says it's because she's menstruating. Fair, okay. So they really don't question that. They question it, but they don't question it. Men are afraid of periods. They're probably blood. What? So what happens is, during this time period, Lizzie burns address. She says it was covered in paint exactly. So she's saying it's covered in paint. And Emma burned this dress. Because they don't know how to clean. This is confusing. Yeah, so this is like looking really bad. So when they go to trial, the jury that's selected is all men, because women weren't allowed to be on juries at that time. It's the time period. So they did find an axe handle in the cellar also, which was covered in ash, and it was also broken. So when asked about this, you know, the experts say that it was recently broken. So I don't know how they know that, but they said it was recently broken. No, I had the trial. They bring in the skulls of Abbey and Andrew. Well, they don't have forensics back then. What are they going to do with the skull? To show the damage that's done to the brutality of the situation, which is bad. So I mean, but then during this whole trial, they can't prove that she did it. They can't prove that she was there. And basically, she looks like the sweet little girl, like little woman. She's 32, but she looks nice. You know, she looks like a well presented woman. So she's actually acquitted because they believe women can't do the damage done during this brutal murder. Honestly, shout out the stupidity of men. So she gets off. And the crowd goes crazy because they're happy for her. Yeah, right? They're like, yeah, 'cause you know, they don't think that she did it. So she ended up inheriting $300,000 at the time, which today's value is ten million dollars. So she ends up immediately moving from the crappy house to a nice house, like a mansion. And Emma and her spend the time, the rest of the time together. And then something happens in Emma disowns her. Like, just leaves. Doesn't talk to her no more. Yeah. So Lizzie actually becomes the bad person. Then people start realizing, wait a minute. There's no other person to blame. Who else can we blame? And basically they come up with those poems, you know, Lizzie boyden had an axe, gave her a mother 40 whack, and she saw she had done gave her father 41. So she ends up changed name to lisbeth. Yeah, she doesn't want to be Lizzie no more. She changed her name for lisbeth. And in 1975, there's a movie made called the legend of Lizzie Borden, and it starts Elizabeth Montgomery, who was bewitched. Let me tell you, I've seen this movie when it came out. And I loved bewitched because Samantha Stevens, I was like, oh, she's so cute. And I saw this movie and I was like, oh my God, Samantha Stevens evil. How could this lady with the so evil? I'm like, oh my gosh, yeah, these people to death. So it really messes up your mind. And her sister is actually played by Katherine helmond, who we'd mentioned in time bandits. She's the ogre's wife. So that kind of takes in. And Elizabeth Montgomery is actually related to Lizzie Borden through a man in Massachusetts named John Luther. Shut up. That's why she took the role. She was like, I can really embody this. I have my own history. So morbid and let's go to court in true triumph of also do podcasts on this. If you want to know more about it. And I suggest you look into this because it's still a hundred years later, it's still an unsolved mystery, and the crime was brutal. I mean, the amount of blood that had to be on this person. So in this movie, this is their theory of what happened. They feel that Lizzie Borden got undressed. Kill their mother, washed off in a basin, went downstairs emptied it, and then got dressed again. When her father came home, she looked presentable. Undressed again, butchered her father, and then washed off again. I don't know. That seems like so much covering up to do when if you're going to kill your dad anyways. And already planned to burn a like. I just don't know. I mean, it's a mystery. It's a mystery. But can't you visit the board and house? Yes. Yes, it's actually a bed and breakfast, and you can actually go there. And I won't. I won't. I might get stabbed. I don't do ghosts. Just telling you. And it's like, I do like little parodies. And I did one like, oh, Lizzie committed the crime. You committed a crime that blew my mind. Oh, Lizzie. Oh, Lizzie. So I do suggest you guys investigate this crime because it is really fascinating. The mishandling of evidence that's done in this is just ridiculous. And the fact that this woman, I believe she committed the crime. I do. All the evidence points to the fact that she butchered these people and got the money. So yeah, she profited the most from it. She wanted this money and then she got it. So that's my bloody hell this week. What is yours? So mine is actually, so I'm more from New Hampshire than Massachusetts. So I did the Connecticut river valley killer, which was a killer in Claremont, New Hampshire, who killed between 1978 and 1987. Kind of crazy. Also very violent crimes. He was a stabber. I kind of tried to think of something in theme with the bloody hell. So I thought that that was really fun. So there is now this crime still unsolved due to a lot of mishandling of evidence by the police I will say. They really fumbled the bag on this one. But it is about so this killer, the Connecticut river valley killer, one of the only New Hampshire serial killers killed 7 women confirmed, but then there are other cases that surround it that could also be this one person. So I could go, I mean, should we go through all the, I don't know. I don't have enough time to go through all the victims. Usually look, it's really crazy fascinating. But so the first time that happened was in Claremont, New Hampshire, three women go missing, and then in 1985, and then a year later in 1986, the remains of the first two women are found within a thousand BW other, like, so this was like this dude's dump site. And they both had 27 stab wounds, and that was the way that he was killing them. And then ten days later, the third remains of the girl were found, same thing, stabbed in the same position. Now this one wasn't as close as the first two. But it was in the same vicinity. So that kind of was like these three disappearances and murders were what kind of jump started the cops end to everyone thinking that this was a serial crime because we first see the first documented victim is from 1978. And this woman was photographed birds up in new London, New Hampshire, and this is what's really crazy. I'm going to sidetrack for one second. Is that when you think of and I don't know this, you think white idyllic maple.

"To not know who he actually is because he's just bad. Yeah, because then you humanize him. And right now they're not human. I mean, they have their own persona. And then when you take away that persona, then all you have is reality. And that's no one likes reality. Reality sucks. Exactly. And I think that's what the riddler was getting at when he kept he kept he had this big thing about being unmasked and the masking in. He was like, but it's not the unmasking that matters. It's actually being able to put on the mask and then do what you want to do and be who you actually are. With no repercussions, essentially, and I think that was his whole thing, you know, he was sad that him and Batman weren't friends and that he couldn't kill Bruce Wayne, not knowing that those two are mutually exclusive, you know? Yeah, and I think there's a key pot on the movie when the guy that's helping riddler and he's up on the catwalk shooting people and he was Batman says, oh wow, and he goes, I am vengeance. And you see Batman's face like stop because now he realizes that, you know, if it wasn't for him, this would have never happened. Exactly. And I think it goes between the channels of justice that people like pursue themselves perceive themselves to go down. Because we have Selena and the riddler, and we can say the Joker because he does talk about it a little bit. In these channels of doing what they think is right, getting Justin's and vengeance the way that they think is right, but is perceived as wrong. And then we have Batman doing the same thing, but since you is more aligned with Gordon and more aligned with the channels of I'm gonna call it cop law, I guess, 'cause it's not outside of it, but it's still vengeance because he's still working outside of the law, but enough within the parameters that he can get away from it. So then who is he to judge all these other people who are doing essentially the same thing that he's doing? You know what I mean? I find it so hypocritical. I don't know. Yeah, and that's like with the whole police force. Falcone says it. You're like, I got all of you in my pocket and Gordon's like, you don't get all of us, they pocket. And some of the cops aren't with that. You know, they're like, no, we want justice. We want justice. We're not trying to be bought and be the bad guys in this town. We're trying to fix this town. And that's I thought was kind of cool. Exactly. And I also thought it was cool because when we're looking at falcone, we see the riddler and Gordon release information private sensitive evidence and information to the public versus just going through those typical channels. And I think that's important because I think in a town where there's so much corruption being caught and ruled in the court of public opinion can lead to a lot of image problems and can lead to your downfall, especially if we're saying Batman is set now in 2022 with the climate that we're in. Can't people get canceled like canceled. We can say that all the time for not for nothing. People get canceled for real things all the time. And I think that was trying to show when they released the voicemail that we're trying to cancel falcone in a way that he can be touchable because to him and within the police force and within these laws of justice heath views himself as untouchable. Yeah, and it's like Johnny Depp. I'm not trying to go there, but I'm going there. Because Johnny Depp, he got that thing in the news and his career kind of tanked, you know? And now he's trying to fight for his career and that's the same thing with falcon. Yeah, except falcone dies. He gets shot because he is a bad guy. I will be transparent. I have not been keeping up with the giant dep Amber Heard. I feel like, I mean, I don't think, yeah, whenever I see big things like this, it's like, what are they distracting us from? What's going on and what are they distracting us from? Because I don't know. But back to the movie, I thought it was really well done. I can't wait for the sequel. I love the use of the color red. The ideas of vengeance, the use of ave Maria. I thought the symbolism and it was great. And I thought they tied a lot of things together well. Yeah, if you haven't seen it, I say you see it. And going with an open mind, don't go into thinking Michael Keaton or Val Kilmer or any of the other Batman go in with this. This is a new Batman. Go in it, like everybody, ten years ago, went into these Christopher Nolan batmans. I don't get why this one is being held to such a different standard because it's so good and it's just as good in its own ways. So I would say if you have any respect for Matt Reeves like you do for Christopher Nolan, go into the movie with an open mind and I think you'll walk away having a good time. It doesn't feel like three hours. No, and kudos to the director, not reliving Batman's family's death. Exactly, like in this one, I love a director that doesn't treat us like we're done. You know what I mean? And I think Matt Reeves did that so well. I can't wait for the sequel. I was a huge, I'm a huge fan of this one. I highly recommend it. I thank you all for tuning in and watching us on the live TikTok. Please tune in next time. And if you like us, click like, follow us because we got a lot of good stuff coming up. Exactly.

"I'm your host The Wizard of Oz, Peggy Wozniak, and this week me and Kira will be talking about Roxanne. All right, now I know we mentioned this movie last week when we started our talk about cyrano de bergerac and I'm so excited we watched it this week and it even had it tie into last week because Shelley Duvall was in it again. Yes, she was. She was Dixie, the cafe owner and she's actually really nice in this. She's really sweet character and she's Steve Martin's best friend. I would say too like if we're when watching the movie, everyone is a sweet character, I think there's no one with malintent in this movie and everyone's just like goofy and fun. You know, I mean, look at the mayor. He's just like, I want to bring people in. Let's have October fest in July. Yeah, I think the only one that was kind of a tool was chuck, the guy that owned the dead animal store. He was kind of a jerk, but other than that, everybody else was kind of cool. He was a jerk, but I thought that his jerk Ness was played off in a way that's like, oh, of course you hunt and have all these dead animals. You're the epitome of a man's man who can't get the woman because he can't relate to a woman. I love it. Yeah, and he's like so wanted Chris second main character in this, the one that Steve Martin helps. He tries to make him like this really awesome ladies man. He's like, you're like, ah, you're the Maestro. In fact, Chris really isn't. He's like this guy that can't even talk to women. And I thought that was so funny. And we can get into this later when we talk about the ideas of relationships and masculinity, but just because you're good-looking doesn't mean you kill it with the ladies like we see Chris and he throws up at the site of Daryl Hannah because he's so nervous. Yeah, he was like the polar opposite of Steve Martin Steve Martin is like, he's got the big nose. He's serial depression acts. Fun fact, Sarah knows the birds react was a trooper. And he did live, where is it? I got it in my notes. So serial Gibraltar act was born on March 6th, 1619. And he died July 28th, 1635. And where is he from? That would be France. And he was also a novelist, a playwright, a Delorean and a dualist. He was actually a feared dualist. People would not make fun of him. He made comments that actually Steve Martin makes in the movie that says, my nose will be arriving 15 minutes before I do. That was actually something serial Berserk really said, but no one else ever said that to him because he would kill them. People feared him. And I think it's so funny because we're introduced to Steve Martin's character as and he's fighting two men in a simulated duel with a tennis racket. And he knocks him out. He completely owns him. It's hilarious, and I think it's so funny that it was a conscious choice that he could not kill people like cyrano de bergerac did because that went translate in 87. Just walking around slaying people. No, that would be a whole different movie. That would be like one of the boys in the hood. You know, that'd be Roxy and in the hood or something. You know, one of those things. But you're right. It was kind of funny that he beats them. And like they have a serious duel. If you watch it, it's really kind of coordinated and it's really a good duel and it's just so funny. And I think looking at this scene with the duo, I think what makes this movie shine so much is how much of Steve Martin's like physical humor is in it because he is so funny. He actually did write the screenplay. And so I think he really allowed himself to shine in that. And I thought he was hysterical. Yeah, and they kind of went with the screen rights story, like they're very beginning scene, Daryl handling locks herself out and she's naked and she has to hide behind bushes and it's kind of funny because like when her and Steve want to walk back to her house, they're talking through a bush and in the screen right into play, that actually is how says stuff to Roxanne. He says it behind a bush because he doesn't want her to see his deformity, his nose. And I think that same idea is repeated again throughout the film when we have this scene where Steve Martin's yelling up to roxana's Chris and when we see the camera he is hidden behind the bushes of the trees and then we see it again when Roxanne comes to apologize to him. So I think it's a really nice callback to the original story. Yeah, I haven't seen the new remake with Peter Dinklage, but I'm kind of curious because rose rock was a real person. And he wasn't short. And they made this movie specifically, I think, for Peter Dinklage. So he could show that just because he's small that he doesn't really weigh on what people really think. And I think what is so great about this story of cyrano de bergerac is it's so universal. Being insecure about who you are because what you look like and how others perceive you, no matter how great you are. And I think that idea can be portrayed so well. We see it with, like we said, cyrano with Peter Dinklage. There was a movie on Netflix called Sierra Burgess is a loser that we see it, also on Netflix's the other half. And then again, here in Roxanne. So I think it's a story that someone can be insecure and like, yes, it's fun when we see an exaggerated extremity, but I think it's also very universal. Yeah, and it kind of plays into our podcast. Data to be different. Be yourself, don't be ashamed of who you are. I mean, if you have a deformity or if you think you're ugly or someone doesn't think you're popular, that doesn't matter. Just be you and enjoy your life. And that's what this movie is basically about. I mean, Steve Martin just absolutely loves who he is. And he doesn't care that he has, well, he kind of cares, but that's the only one people later on. But in the beginning, you can see he doesn't really let that affect who he is. And I think what's so great in the film too is that it shows how respected and the town he is. Like even more so than the mayor. And I thought that was really cool. Everyone's like, oh, don't talk about his nose because it will set him off, but I think it sets him off in a way that. The person who talked about the nose is humiliated. So they're kind of saving that person. And we see it when the guy was like, oh, well, you got a big nose and he's like, okay, I will give you 20 insults on that are better. And you look like a fool and I look cool. Everyone's cheering me on. Yeah, that was pretty funny, because he's like, here's a dart, and whatever you get, I'll do the jokes and the guy's like, okay, and he hits it once and Steve Martin is like, oh no, no, wait, wait, wait, hit it again. He's like dark champ, 1987. And Steve, I was like, okay, I'll do 20 jokes. And he does, he rambles off 20 really funny jokes about himself. And the guy gets so mad because he looks like a fool. And then he tries to swing it, Steve Martin, and Steve Martin knocks him out. And so it's like you really can't mess with CD CD bales, which I thought was a fun way to do cyrano de Berkshire hack in a modern telling. But I thought it was really cool and interesting to see. I mean, okay, do you have any other thoughts on Sierra as a character before we get into the deception and the love story? So as a character, I feel cyrano is one of those people that he's a very caring, loving individual that wants to help people, but he feels that his own insecurities kind of set him back from being the forefront when actually he is the forefront. He's the person that everybody looks to for guidance and wisdom, but in his own insecurity about his nose. Can it falls back behind? He wants to be behind the scenes instead of right up front. Exactly. And I think he says this great line that when rewatching it, it really broke my heart when he was like, you know, I see people and they're happy and they're in love and they're walking down the street and I want that and I think I can have it and then I look at my own shadow and I'm reminded why I can't. And I thought that that was so powerful because it's like so you're the only one standing in your way because you can have that. You see that Daryl Hannah falls in love with your personality. Granted, she's a little superficial and kind of dumb. But we can get into that. Yeah, I agree. And you know, it's like a lot of things in life. We hold ourselves back. And we say we can't do it. People like, they'll write a poem, like, oh, it's not good enough, or they'll write a story like, oh, it's not good enough. Oh, there's a job opening. They're like, oh, I'm not qualified enough. We are our worst nightmare. Absolutely. And I think this story is great because it shows that when you don't hold yourself back and you do put yourself and what you want, then you can end up happy and you can get everything you want, you know? The firemen ended up working together and finally go put out a fire. I mean, the chorus of silly firemen killed me throughout the whole movie. And I mean, a surprise appearance by Damon Wayans..

"Killed it. And I'm glad that they had her and like twice on the thing because that character of pansy and Vincent were just so funny and they were outside the arc, but they made the movie so much funnier. I thought so too. And I thought that it was funny to have these reoccurring characters because it's like even though times change, things still are the same. You know what I mean? I thought they were going to show up continually throughout the film. That's what I was waiting for. Yeah, didn't you tell me that Sean Connery actually asked to continue? So he didn't ask to continue. So Sean Connery had a very short time that he could film. He only had 14 days, and while after he read the script, he was like, oh, you know, like maybe at the end, my character could have a cameo a comeback to the agamemnon character like. Like we said with Shelley Duvall with the pansy and the Vincent characters, having characters repeat through time because even though times are different, things are the same. And tariel was like, oh, whatever kind of sat on it. And then he didn't like the ending he had come up with. So he had actually written Sean Connery and to be that firefighter that Kevin sees. And then begged him to come in for two days to do it. He was overseas. It was all this stuff. And he didn't. And I think it was, I thought I was a really interesting tie in, especially because we had the mimicking earlier in the film. Yes. And so at the ending, God comes in and he turns evil into stone like a statue and breaks it apart. And he has them pick up all the pieces of evil. He's like, all right guys, you get to clean up. And make sure you get all the evil and don't leave it because it's evil. And any P that can destroy you. But there's a piece that falls under the tank and it's left. So as they're leaving, they leave Kevin. And Kevin knows that a piece of evil still there. And then when he comes back to his own time, he wakes up into a fire and he's rushed out by the firefighters, revealing Sean Connery, but they say that the fire style because of the mother's pot roast or something. And when they pull it out, the mother and father hold in the oven, the small oven, and they open it in the PC evil is actually in there and Kevin says, don't touch it, it's evil and they don't listen to him. Like they don't listen to them all throughout the movie. And he touch it and they blow up, leaving Kevin alone. Yeah, it's kind of crazy. So it shows that evil does win in the end. I mean, Kevin is left orphaned and homeless, but I think it's, I think it was a story of hope because now that he's unencumbered by what he views like that he needs. He has the photo of the map and he has this Spider-Man Sean Connery, so maybe it's all good, but then the movie ends and we have George Harrison's just a dream playing and it's like, what was it? You know, I thought it was really kind of in ambiguous, but like really fun and I don't know, I really enjoyed it and I see so many parallels to like other things like did you ever watch that show miracle workers? Oh my God. Hilarious. So in the show, it's about God who Steve Buscemi, kind of like runs this office building. And I saw a lot of parallels in this with God being like these are my workers and you're getting back pay. So I thought that was really funny. I don't know. That was just like playing through my head through the whole third act. Wait, yes, I do know what you're talking about. That has the star of Harry Potter in it. Okay, yes, I do know the show. I haven't watched it. I heard nothing but good things about it, but I just haven't had a chance to see it. Okay, this is going to be a small tangent about miracle workers because it's one of my favorite shows. Season one, hysterical. He is God, and they're all his workers. Season two, medieval times, season three, Oregon Trail, tens across the board every time. So funny. I do think season two is my favorite. But HBO Max, everyone, if you have it, please give it a watch. Daniel Radcliffe is hysterical. So I go watch it. So I hope you liked our show this week. I thought it was great. And you must check out time bandits. And if they do a reboot, I hope they do it justice. I'm going to leave this off with care if she wants to say anything. Awesome, I just want to say thank you guys for listening to us every week. We have fun watching these movies. We have fun talking to you about it. And we want this just to be about fun and positivity and I think this movie brings that in. I think if you watch miracle workers at will, Roxanne, cyrano de bergerac, anything that we've talked about because it's all about being yourself and being true to yourself. You know, that's the message, right? Yeah, they had to be different. Be yourself, don't let no one change you or try and make you anything yet you're not. And always value yourself. And I hope you appreciate that and tune in next time to.

"With her friends and she has like a pin that's like, no, on her bra, it's like, it's so insane. Yeah, and the pot with the breather, he's in the shower with them, and he's like, I'm doing something that I'm not supposed to do. And he ends up passing out and waking up going. Oh, okay, I'm supposed to kill people. Yeah, and I thought that kind of showed, especially later when we see the one of the first killer reveals is that it's the principal, and we kind of see him with this insane mommy issues. We see him, I mean, being very perverse in the girls locker room. And I think it's just really, I think it was very shoehorned in to make him seem like the obvious killer. And then we have the reveal that his aide who's also his mom is the secondary killer, which back to scream two killers. Yeah, I thought that was that's one of the reasons I wanted you to watch that because we were talking about how Wes craven had the thing with two kilos, and then I remember this movie and I was wait a minute. I remember another movie where they had two killers and it was like that was a no no back then because it was only one killer unless of course you Friday the 13th and you had the mother who died and then Jason came. But this was actually two kilos, the mother who killed the boys with trash bags and really strange and then the son who was killing him with objects that would just not kill people. Exactly. And he always wore those crazy green gloves, which comes back at the end. So I thought that if this movie had focus, it's points of view, it would have made a bigger impact because we kind of talked about this before we started recording. When we look at the ending, we have this great reveal of the two killers, which could have been very impactful, and then the movie kind of crumbles in on itself when she wakes up and it's a fever dream because sexual repression causes swine flu. I mean, I just really got a muscle that one down. Yeah, that was really silly. I was like, I was like, oh my God, what the hell? And everybody in the movie, the characters weren't the characters when the reveal came out. It was more like, who was the janitor? He was actually like a professor and really astute, and then the principal was the janitor and it got all kind of flipped around. Although Toby was still her boyfriend. No, Toby was the main girl. But her boyfriend was still her boyfriend. I forget his name is like Arthur. Arthur, she said weird though. But then, okay, so then it still goes back to the idea that sex is bad. So even once she gets out of this horrible dream of sexual repression and they're like, maybe you just gotta have sex, so you stop giving yourself swine flu that she has so that she goes to her boyfriend and she's like, I love you, I'm ready. And then he pulls out those green gloves and he's like, well, I have no respect for you now that you want to have sex for me with me. So I'm just going to kill you. I mean, I think that is crazy. And we can talk about the duality of that later if you'd like. But yeah, it was kind of crazy. And then he ends up killing her and I'm like, what the hell just happened? Because all through the movie, you thought that the ending that they had was it. You know, there was the principal and the mother, but then she has this Wizard of Oz wake up and then everybody just like in The Wizard of Oz, which places and there are all these different people. And I'm like, and then the boyfriend ends up killing her. I'm like, oh, well, that kind of didn't work out for you, did it. But then through her death, he ends up killing him by strangling him just like in the ending of Carey. So I felt like the ending was very layered and it kind of crumbled in on itself because we talked about how it had such a strong ending with the two killers, such a good reveal, could have been really impactful, and then they lost it. Yeah, they definitely dropped the ball. And you know, the good thing about that movie, they were talking about a lot of other movies that were like, you wouldn't reference they were talking about sybil when she's having, they think that she's the killer and they're like, you're having civil issues. And then they had the school was doing the grease musical. And there was like different parts of different movies that were thrown in there. They talked about The Godfather and besides horror movies, they were throwing in other movies in reference. Absolutely. And I thought it was kind of interesting to see when Toby goes to prom. She's kind of in an outfit that would resemble sandy at the end of her transformation of Greece, which I think has a lot of parallels if you look at the ideas of female innocence and purity because we have sandy who's so sweet and so innocent. And then she turns to bad sandy at the end of Greece because now she's embracing who she is and who she is with Danny. And I think to have Toby kind of mimic that in her costuming was really powerful. I mean, obviously she dies in the end. So it's not as powerful, but yeah, the characterization was pretty cool. I like that too, when they flip their around. And she was not noticeable, and then when she did that, she became noticeable, kind of like sandy and Greece. And in the movie everybody's like, you know, she's nobody, she's nobody. And then she puts on that outfit and all of a sudden everybody's like, oh, look at her. And it was kind of good for her character. To build her up. And then they had one weird thing in the movie that I didn't understand at first, but then I did. And all about 80 horror movies, they always throw in one black character. There's always like one black character in the movies, and then in this movie they bust a guy from Africa and gets to the movie. For no apparent reason just to have a black person in the movie. There's actually two because they also have the girl, and then they have the, actually, there's multiple black characters in this movie because you have the couple that dies in the flow. You have the character busting from Africa. You have the blind man who helps the other disabled man. So I thought that I had to your point, I thought that it was actually the reverse of that because they were including so many people of color to try to kind of diversify it, which I thought was extra interesting seeing how this movie was set. In the 80s and in Houston, Texas, which is predominantly very white, I don't know. But I thought it was interesting. I thought they could have done more with those characters to expand them instead of having them beside characters because sans the two that got killed in the flow, everyone else was kind of just. They had one off bet throughout the film. Yeah, like the kid that came from Africa, like basically he's just there and then they just kill him off. And I'm like, why'd you even bring this guy in? I mean, bring him in. You make this big joke that he came on a bus drove across the ocean in a bus to get to the school and he just got there. And then he's at the game and then you kill him. Yeah, and so his character didn't make sense to me. And I mean, you kind of have this very awful scene between him and horse and bookends. Where he's like, take that tambourine off your head, like what are you wearing? Kind of humiliating him in this classroom, which felt very of the time, so watching it back kind of felt like a punch in the gut because you're like, oh, this is, this is not right. Yeah, that character made no sense to me. I was kind of like, why do you even have this person in here? If it's just like to berate this guy, put them down and then kill them. I mean, and then they killed the killer doesn't kill him, by the way. The teacher kills him by having him get into a plastic bag to show how these people die. Exactly. So it's kind of just like an unnecessary violence I felt like while watching the film. So I didn't like that. But I did like like I said, I like the two characters, even though they got killed in the float. And I like the one character who was very stereotypically a man from the 70s like that kind of like cool cat sort of character, but I like that. He was hand in hand with the other disabled man. And I thought that they were kind of like the two blind mice sort of just helping each other through at first some kind of different comic comic relief. Yeah, it kind of reminded me of what is it Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder in here, no evil speak no evil. And then those characters how they interplay with each other and.

"Steve asked looking at her concerned. Oh, calm down. I wouldn't embarrass you like that. Those names are strictly between us to May laugh. But a little blackmail never hurt. I'm still leaning towards evil, Steve replied, as he pulled her close to him as they got closer to the Boston state House, they could see the golden dome. They could hear the crowd counting down to the lighting of the Christmas tree. Steve didn't know who styled the countdown. Even if the number they were yelling was correct. However, when the crowd reached zero, the whole tree burst into a dazzle of different colored lights. The large star on the top was a bright gold and the whole crowd let out a collective ah at the side of it. Have you ever seen anything so beautiful? It just takes your breath away to may ask leaning into him. Yeah, I actually have Steve replied, but his eyes weren't looking at the tree. So when I wrote this story, it was actually just a one off and people that read it actually liked the dialog between the two characters to me and Steve. So when they were finished, they'd look at me and they'd say, what's next? When you mind, it's a one off. You don't really know what's next. So I had to come up with another story to continue the telling of this relationship between Steven to me. So I come up with this story called the Cold Steve crush behind the old station wagon and set up at the street light. The light had turned red in the car was stopped waiting for it to change. Steve raced out once the light turned green and grabbed onto the cos rear bumper. As you slide now, the ice coverage street with the car. He looked back and saw that toma hadn't budged from where he left her. So he released his grip from the bumper and slid to the sidewalk. What gives he asked as he raced back to where she was standing, you were supposed to do exactly what I did. Are you insane to me, yelled staring at him angrily? You could have been killed. I Steve started to say what was cut off. I ain't nothing. If you fell on that ice to car behind, you would have ran you over and killed you. Do you think I came out in this cold to see my boyfriend get squashed like a bug? Is that what you were thinking when you asked me to come out? Well, is it? She demanded with her arms now folded and a new upgrade on her face from angry to furious. Steve really wanted to laugh, but knew better. It was just that to me looks so cute. She was all bundled up detector from the cold, her long black hair was sticking out of a black stocking cap with a ball on top. Her cheeks and nose were red from the short time it took to walk from his house to the way they were on Franklin street. I'm sorry. I really didn't mean to scare you, honestly. He said, as he side and walked over and gave her a hug. Well, you did your big jerk. Is that what you and your friends do for fun? You see who can commit suicide the fastest? She says pulling out of his gripping staring at him questionably. It's called car hopping. And we do it every winter. The only dangers are if you hit a manhole cover in wipe. I can't even begin to tell you how often I bruised a hip or an elbow from wiping and hitting the street. Then there's cab drivers. You don't want to grab onto a cab driver's bumper. Because if they see you, they will literally stop the car and chase you away. He told her with a smile. I'm in love with a lunatic to me side, raised in a mitten to her temples if she had a sudden headache and walked past Steve. Hey, come on, Tim. He said, is he jogged to catch up to her? You're the one who wanted to know what me and my Friends do for fun. You honestly don't see the danger in what you're doing to may ask as they walk. Well, yeah, I guess, but that's kind of what makes it fun. It's the danger, I guess, and not to mention the challenge. You have to sneak up on the car without them seeing you, then grab onto their bumper as the cost speeds up and you slide down the street. I think you'd like it if you gave it a try, he said, as they made their way down Franklin street and towards central square land. Nope, hard pass, but are there other things like this you and your friends do that I should know about she asked? Well, we do go up to the train tracks and snow jump he replied, hoping she wouldn't ask him for details. That doesn't sound so bad. What exactly do you guys do? She asked what the smile. Damn it, Steve thought to himself. He should have never mentioned it. He could always lie about what it was. But that wouldn't be right. He was always told that relationships were built on trust. And he didn't want to break the trust him into me had. Well, we go up onto the road tracks and we wait for a train to combine and slow down. Then we run out and grab onto the rails and as the train speeds up, we jump off into snow banks. He said with a sigh, lowering his head and waiting for her response. Have I mentioned your lunatic to me, said, shaking her head in disbelief? Yeah, you covered that already, Steve laughed. Good, because I wouldn't want you to think that the things you were doing are intelligent decisions. To me, said what concerned on her voice? Hey, come on. You mean to tell me you haven't done anything like what me and my Friends do? He asked, I've gone to the reservoir and jumped off the pump house in the summer, she said, with a smile, you see, that's dangerous Steve replied as he reached down and held her hand as they walked. Only if you jump on the side with a water intake is. But no one's dumb enough to do that. She said as she leaned close to him. So have any of your friends gotten hurt, snow jumping? Not on the train tracks, but my friend Kenny got hurt doing something like it. Steve said really wishing that lying was an option. So what exactly happened to me asked? The look on the face that said this story was going to vindicate her point to Steve. Okay, a bunch of us plan to building that the plows pushed a bunch of snow against. So it could actually jump off the roof into the snow banks. The thing is, when Kenny jumped, he landed on a snow covered dumpster. Once Steve said it, he knew he lost any justification of the things him and his friends do for fun. Oh my God, how bad was he hurt? She asked with concerns look on her face. Actually, he broke both his legs and fractured his pelvis. He had to wear a cast on the lower part of his body for almost a year, Steve's side. C, C, that's what I'm talking about. That could have been you to me said shaken her head. Tim, listen, you're right. But it wasn't. I'm not going to say the stuff we do isn't risky because it is. The thing is, a lot of the stuff we do is so much fun that we don't care about taking that risk. He said, as if hoping that cleared everything up, are we going someplace right now that's in that category? She asked stochastically. We're actually going Bucky jump in a goldfish pond he said with a smile. You are so gonna have a blast. We're going where to do what she asked puzzled to go fish pond. It's a circular pond with a circular island in the middle. During the summer, they actually put flowers on the island and the shape of a goldfish. And they filled upon with live goldfish. During the winter, it freezes over and we break the ice into large chunks and try and run across to the island and then back. He said with a big grin, Bucky jumping. Put what if you fall into the water, won't you catch your death of cold? She asked question? Well, then I guess I better not fall in. He said what the big smile. On second thought, you could come over and spoon feed me chicken soup when I'm sick. I think I like that. You're dead, she giggled. I can see a future and it doesn't have me spoon feeding you. Come on, I want to show you something. He said as they crossed the street at Lin city hall and headed towards a golden building with large picture windows. Oh, Tim said, as she leaned against the picture window and looked at the display cases inside, you wanted to show me rings. Oh my God, Steve, this is so sudden. Wait, no. What? Steve fumbled. What I wanted to show you was around the corner. It's a bakery. Calm down, Romeo. I was only teasing Tim said as she walked past him hidden in the direction he indicated the bakery was at. Are you sure you're not trying to give me some sort of hint asked? What are you talking about? He asked confused. These are wedding cakes, Tim smiled, pointing at the display in the window. I think you're trying to tell me something. What? No. Steve fumbled again. You are so adorable when you blush temp said as she opened the door and turned Steve walked in. Steve, a great hit man with a flowered covered apron called out. Who is a pretty thing with you? And where's Tyree? Tyree was Steve's friend from high school, a stocky black teen who collected comic books with Steve. Every day at lunch, they'd walk to the comic book store on union street, and on the way they stop in the bakery and get pastries. Hey, mister pot to lease this Steve replied. This is my girlfriend, Tim. And I really don't know what tyrese at, but I'll definitely let him know you were asking about him. Well, what can I get you to today, mister pasta, let us ask him to smile. Two elephant ears and two cocos would be great. Steve told them as he reached into his soccer money. What an elephant he is, Tim asked. Big circular pasties with cinnamon and raisins. You're going to love them, Steve said. Sounds yummy. Oh, macaroons, temp said as she moved over to one of the display cases.

"War and spent she won the act and on this episode I'm going to read you two stories. Both the set in the 80s and they have comedy and romance and just fun. So the first one's entitled a common Christmas and let's go Steve status to me late before him moving arms up and down. They had only been going out for three months, but she mesmerized him. He honestly had no plans on asking her to be his girlfriend. When he first met her, it was her best friend grace, a blond haired blue eyed girl who had all rights was supposed to be the girl he hooked up with. The blackhead Filipino girl hadn't even been a second thought to him. If grace didn't have detention that day, that's how I probably would end it up. However, she did, and when him and teme went back to his house to wait, one thing led to another and a tickle fight turned into a kissing match. She wasn't who he wanted, she wasn't who he had been looking for. Now she seemed to be all he ever needed. You're going to catch a death of cold. He said, smiling down at her. Not to mention you look ridiculous. I'm making a snow angel. She said she stood up and she crossed the snow from her back. So how did I do? Steve looked at the place where the impression of the snow angel was and started laughing. What's so funny to me asked, look into him confused, didn't it turn out all right? Sure, Steve smiled. I just didn't know angels had horns and a pointed tail. Oh, you're such a jerk to me. He said, as she hid him playfully on his chest with the snow covered mittens, the snowy mist coming off her mittens, made him laugh even harder. He spun her to him and held her close as they both looked down to her creation. I'm glad we came. I'm having a really good time. I've never brought on a Boston common during Christmas time. It's really pretty. She said leaning her head back against his. Yeah, it's pretty cool how they strung up all the Christmas lights and hung all the different decorations around the common light poles. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I'm glad we came to. He replied as he took her hand and they continued walking. During Christmas, a large tree is decorated in front of the Boston state House. One of the time on a traditions in the city of Boston is the lighting of this tree. The whole city comes alive for the event, and you can watch ice sculptures being formed. Listen to the carolers sing on the steps of the state House. A large portion of the comments is wanted frozen and smooth to create a nice skating area. I've been thinking to me said as they walked, did you know that all great relationships have a song? We've only been going out three months, Steve replied. I mean, I don't really think we've reached great status as far as relationships go. So you don't think we have a great relationship to me said, stopping and staring at Steve with a pouty face, making a little lip puff in and out as she spoke. I didn't say that, Steve said. I knew you'd agree to me, said, grabbing his arm and moving him along before he could finish saying anything else. So we need to decide a song. I like journeys faithfully. What do you think? Honestly, I have no idea. This is all new to me. How about that love song by Guns N' Roses? It sounds decent. Steve replied confused. You do know he's talking about his dog and how he had to put it down, right? To me said with the puzzle look on her face, do I look like a dog to you? Well, you do have a nice tail, Steve replied with a smile. That's it to me said throwing a hands up in the air. It's official you're a pig. Hey, I was only kidney Steve said he'll try to hold back a laugh. Look, basically my journey is fine. I like it. I knew you would. I mean, it's perfect. It's about a love that's eternal. It fits us to a T, it's so adorable to me so with a big grin on her face, a door or what Steve asks is he stopped walking, looked at her question, Lee. Adorable to me replied. It means beyond adorable. Look, I'm failing English, but I'm sure that that's not a real word, Steve said, shaking his head. It's my word, and that's all that matters to me replied. Oh, look, Santa hats. Steve has to excuse himself and to me, as he dragged him through the crowd of sightseers to a vending stand. The man behind the counter was heavyset and balding. Steve could tell he'd been attending the stand for a while because his cheeks were bright red. Am I reading that sign, right? Steve asked, does that sign say $12 for a hat? Yeah. And for another $2, I can put the lovely ladies name on it with glitter, the vendor replied. $14, Steve said in shock, that's a case of beer and a few munchies. What to may ask, looking at him with the lost look on her face. What are you talking about? Man math, Steven, the vendor said at the same time. Excuse me, to me, said, as she did at both of them waiting for them to explain, man math, Steve plot the smile. It's when a girl wants a man to buy her something. And when you think of what else we could buy with the money. But don't you think they look cute in one of these? To me, said, taking one of the hats off the counter and put it on her head, trigonometry, the vendor laughed. Now what's that, may I ask, placing both hands on the hips and scrunching up her face in a fake expression of anger? Trigonometry is when a girl resorts to trying to get a man to buy her something by saying how sexy acute they look in the objects you've replied. Fine, I don't want the stupid hat anyway. To me, he said, putting the hat back on the counter. I just thought you'd like how it looked on me. That's all. Oh, she's good. The vendor center with the laugh. She's a keep us on one hat with their name on it. Please, Steve said, as he reached newest stock to pull out his money. Why do you have a wallet in your back pocket, but keep your money in your sock to may ask? It's so if someone swipes my wallet, all the git is the empty wallet and not my money. Steve said as he paid the vendor and explained how to spell to May's name, so it could put on the hat with glitter. Thank you to me said to the vendor as she placed the finish hat on the head and skipped down the path. She stopped and looked back over her shoulder with an impish grin. Are you coming or not? You are in for it with that one, my friend, the vendor said with the laugh, but I'll say this again. She's definitely a keeper. Yeah, you're right about that. I have a Merry Christmas. Steve said, is he raced off to catch up with to me? When he caught up to her, she was standing on the edge of the ice skating area. She was leaning against the tree, watching the people sail across the ice. Some look so graceful. It seemed as if they were born with skates on their feet. And others looked as if they were beyond terrified to be on the ice. Do you know how to ice skate may ask that she turned to him and moved closer. In my case, it's more walk than actual skate, Steve laughed. I've never been good at ice skating. Now, roller skating, I must admit I'm really good at. Then you'll have to take me roller skating sometime to May said as she grabbed his hand and let him down the path. Absolutely. I can't think of anyone I'd rather couple skate with. Steve said with a smile as he took her arm and his as they walked besides, we'll be able to request that song while we skate. I've been thinking to me, said, with an impish smile on her face as she looked over at him. Oh God, I'm in trouble, Steve said, trying to hold back a laugh. You're not funny to me replied with the party expression on her face. Who's joking, Steve smiled, whenever you say you've been thinking, I'm usually in for it. It's just that now that we have a song, we should have special names for each other to make it with a smile on her face. Wait, are you suggesting that we call each other sappy names like snuggle bunny or something? Steve asked stopping and looking over at to me as if she'd lost their mind. Don't look at me like that. And every great relationship they had pet names for each other. To me, said to him, as if this was common knowledge, everybody should know. Was I supposed to get an instruction manual of something when I asked you out Steve said with a smile because I've never heard any of this stuff before. I didn't expect you to know this stuff. You're a guy to me said. But now that you have me, I can stay you right. I heard about your type, Steve laughed. What type is that to may ask, looking at him confused? Yogurt suggests that I changed my hairstyle. It may be how I dress. Well, the music I listened to, and then once I do all that, you'll turn around and dump me because I'm no longer the guy you fell in love with. Steve's not at the laugh. You're a jerk to me, said as she crossed her arms and turned it back on him. Hey, I'm only joking, Steve said gently placing his hand on her shoulder. I'd love to hear what your idea of a pet names are. I knew you would to me said spinning around towards him with a big grin. Okay, with your brown hair and hazel eyes, I decided Pookie would be a great name for you. What? Steve asked for the confused look on his face. What kind of name is that? Spooky. He's got fields teddy bear to make a smile. He's so soft and cuddly. Don't you want to be my Pookie bear? Hell no, Steve said shaking his head. That's way too wimpy. You need to think of another name. Okay, fine to make up with the devious look on her face. I'll just tell all your Friends in mind. How adorable you are. You wouldn't Steve said with a shock look on his face. We'll see to me he said with a smile. So how do you spell that? Is it with an IE or Y? Steve Aston defeated tone. That would be with an EY to me said taking his arm and hers and continuing down the path. So what name do you think would be best for me? Evil, Steve laughed. I'm going to ignore that to me said with a smile. I know it's just the cold weather whopping your train of thought. Touche, Steve replied jokingly. I always think it is something along the lines of cuddles. I like it to me said happily. Pookie loves cuddles. As sort of a rhyme to it. Now these pet names are just between us, right? I mean, you're not going to call me that name around everyone..

"I think just because I was having at the time of sequels, that's why they went back to the original because they saw that the new formula didn't work. So Nev Campbell's character like developmental coach has a book about helping. Isn't that kind of like odd? She'd end up in that type of a rare after like dealing with such trauma. Absolutely, because we see in the second one she's in college. In the third one, she's helping on a hotline for abused women. And then we see her turned into a public. I think why we see her turn into a public figure with herself help book is because since the death of her half brother Roman, who did all this horrible orchestrating in their minds. I think she thinks she's free from the trauma, which is why the fourth one hits and she's like, oh, I thought I got rid of this. Kind of like how everyone feels when new movies come back. Oh, I thought I got rid of this, but we're back in it. We're back at it. Let's face it back in. Yeah, kind of like develops in the life where if one thing bad happens to you and nothing bad happens, you automatically you start thinking that you have the cause of all this badness that you have like a dark shadow hanging over you and you feel you can never get out of it. Whether it's working in a business or in life in general, like a relationship with one girl who dumps on you a one boy dumps on you. Whoever you were with, dumps on you, then you feel that you can't have a good relationship because you've carried over this bad omen that it's always going to be adopting in your life. Exactly. And at the beginning of the 5th movie, you Sidney actually gets a call from Dewey and he's like, it's happening again. And she goes, you know what? Nothing's going to get me to come to wood zero. I'm staying in California. And then the catalyst to get her to come toward is actually due to staff..

"I think it was magical. Anyway, magical dining was $37. And that got you the 5 categories that you could pick something from. And then we added on the goat cheese cones and the charcuterie board, the charcuterie board was a little pricey. I think $29. Yeah. Because I think it was because of the because of those controls. They were just ridiculous. But it was so good. But I think the whole meal tip included was a little over like a 120 dollars. And for a meal as she for us, we don't eat in a lot of restaurants where we live. So we're just, I'm not going out with people. So when we go to Disney, we tend to make reservations in restaurants that are higher end. And it is very rare that we get out of a restaurant for under a $180. We split up. And that's alcohol included. But when we go on vacation, we splurge, and this was worth every penny. I would have absolutely paid more than this. But it was probably tip included was a 120 or a $130, which for us was fantastic. Yeah, we did. And again, like I said, even though they were small plates, we took a ton of stuff back. It was well worth every penny. Oh, the head chef at Leo is rudolfo Guzman Aranda. And he's excellent. I had no complaints when we went the restaurant wasn't crowded. We went during the COVID times. So I don't know if it normally is super packed or not. It doesn't appear to be in the reviews that I've watched on YouTube. It doesn't appear to be super crowded. It does get a little loud because like I said, it's an open kitchen. You can see them making the paella. They're very interactive. And they were talking to each other and so it can get a little bit loud. The restaurant is beautiful. But I highly recommend a trip to Haley. We will definitely go again. It was definitely worth this us to do that. I would highly recommend trying to go when there is a some sort of a magical dining thing. And the magical dining last year that we hit ran from August 27th to October 3rd. So basically, if you're there at any point in September, you might lock into it..

"Sitting alone in an empty room because Christmas and Christmas is about you. I really hope that you hear the song come home where you belong going to Christmas Day and Christmas, don't you, as you. So I am far from a professional singer, but I have so much fun doing this stuff. I mean, the jokes and the comedy. It's just, it's a lot of blast. And I hope everybody has a chance to do something fun in their life. Okay, this is the last one on Christmas, I promise. It's a spoof on frosty snowman called field salon man about immigrations. With jolly happy soul with a riding mower garden house and a green card that he stole, feelings, a lot of men was a legal citizen they say, kept his profile low by and I didn't know that he snuck into the country one day, there must have been an informant at that new job that he found because when he showed up at that place, I ended up getting a taste for around. It was as fast as fast could be. And immigrants say he could run all day, just like you and me, feel on me. He was a she was done. She said, I'm just gonna run and have some fun before they call me away. Bound to the village with a cell phone in his hand, calling her and their calling everywhere to help me if you can get around all around the streets of time. I didn't do an INS cop and he only paused a moment. When he heard him haul or stop, he got deported, that's Saturday. He waved goodbyes into that Donald guy. I'll be back again someday, companies sometimes look at that feeling. Over the hills of Mexico. So for those who you actually know me and those of you who don't, I am a huge Boston sports fan. It doesn't matter if it's the bruins, the Celtics, the Red Sox, Boston University, the Patriots, it doesn't matter if they're from Boston, I'm going to root from because that's my hometown and I absolutely love it. So I did this spoof song on match Jones, said the song Mike Jones. I hope you like it because he's a patriots quarterback. He doesn't want him back then, but I swear they want him now. Back then he didn't want him. He's the best and please get the linebackers on the prowl affect they all want him. He's got a pocket full of offense to make a fan smile. Wow, wow, where are you going? I'm going to see Mac. May I cool, Mac Jones, who Mac Jones? So again, these are all little small, funny songs. Like, you know, keep bits and pieces, you know, comedy. I did one, it's called the needle or cannabis. Trees before my half hours again now. Be rushing things that let me hit that shit again for we need a little cannabis, right? This very minute looking out the window coughing as we hit it just we need little cannabis, right? It's very minute. I haven't started a single floor, but it is here, so don't you worry. Trump is shit to the biggest bulls I've ever seen now. It's time we spoke to the African hydro now. I was I popped a little upper little higher. It's not a little boulder. Got my highest stronger. And I'm constantly looking at my shoulder. I see me want to be a little bit calmer, so I need a little bit of cannabis now. Yeah, I'm going to follow it up with another one I did. It's called iona hookah. They can parody of that song. My name is Luca from the 80s. It's on the second floor, right upstairs from you, I guess you've never seen it before. If you feel like you want to hit it late one night, you really know trouble just bring up my just don't ask me why I buds. Just don't ask me why I buns. Just don't ask me why I buzzed. So like I said, I'm taking these off TikTok. So if you want to actually hear a better version of it, because it seems like to me, it's like a little echoey. You can actually go to TikTok, look up the sun to comedy, fun and stuff. You can check that out and have a better time at that. I think they're coming to our right, but if you just want to laugh and see me actually sing the songs and you can actually go on there and do that and get a little chuckle because, like I said, it was fun doing it, but it's all just a big joke. Gotta have a little laughs. I did do one recently. It's called my Corona parody on the song, my sharona. So I'm gonna share that with you, and then my little bottle one. Bottle one. Maybe I'll drink it with some lime, caramel and you make my body thirst. Body thirst. Even when they go get that lime, Corona, I love to hear your bottle pop bottle pop, 'cause you're always on my mind, my mind, yeah. Okay, so I'm gonna share what I did a while back when Tom Brady was with the Patriots. It's an older one. It's a rap version. It's a little silly, but like I said, I'm a die hard patriots fan, so here it goes. I don't probably remember the past nation I know many of y'all look on me in frustration, but I've been a fan since we were losing teeth on smiling in shining and living the dream. Now, I would be a past fan to the day I die and all the while between praise to that Brady guy now some of y'all ain't never been dance but I never got a second chance. 5 out of 7 is what we've won and we all are to misses Brady's favorite son. Now I'll be a part of the end of the day I die and scream praises that Brady guy. I hope you all like my song for you all that didn't craft Brady. You got it wrong. So the last song I'm gonna do is one if you shop at Trader Joe's in the holidays, you'll appreciate because all the stuff they have. It's called the 12 days of trade shows.

"What is happening world? I'm your host the wizard of law has Benji Wozniak. This is going to be the second edition of short stories and poetry. The first story is going to be called the weezer. And it's about a woman with a bad case of asthma, who reflects on the failures in her life, as she tried to become a serial killer. So let's get started. You could feel the sweat running down her back. The vinyl jogging suit was sticking to her body. She was seeing spots before her eyes and gasping for air. TLD woman was only a few feet away from her, but it didn't matter. She needed her inhaler. She stag it off to the jogging path and eased herself onto the pocket. Now she struggled to open her fanny pack for her inhaler. She almost cut herself on the steak knife inside. Her hands were shaking as she put the inhale into her mouth and took a deep puff. She felt the medicine going to work on her lungs almost immediately. And her breathing returned to normal. She could still see the elderly geogra through her watering eyes and cursed her in frustration. All her life asthma has prevented her from succeeding. Yet this idea seemed perfect when she thought it up. She was sure that becoming a serial killer was the only thing asthma couldn't possibly prevent it from succeeding at. However, the primary target of most serial killers was joggers. Therein lay her problem. Not only did I ever attempt at jogging trigger her asthma, but another problem could have occurred. Has she managed to assault the elderly jargon a secluded area and had an asthma attack. She probably would have got her ass kicked and arrested. All this planning, and the only thing she had accomplished was another failure. She had become so confident when she went and bought her jogging suit. She was even happy to buy a pair of pink and gray Nikes that matched her suit. He told herself just because she was resorting for a life of crime didn't mean she couldn't do it in style. Then there was a brilliant idea about the steak knives. She had purchased a number of True Detective magazines to research her into his profession. What she learned was that serial killers that got caught made some stupid mistakes, the most common mistake was using some rare weapon that one way or another could be traced back to its owner. That caused her to think about her choice as a murder weapon. She was contemplating this dilemma. She had been in the process of shopping. That's when she walked by the kitchen department and had a brainstorm. Hell, how many hostels across the United States owned state knives? Good luck is to offer some man with tracing this murder weapon. She thought to herself as she made a purchase. She stayed from the benches and other elderly jogger wearing a white suit pastor by sole bet at the nerve, the twiller fingers at her. She would have loved to carve that smile off her arrogant little face and could have if she didn't suffer from the stupid affliction. How come when she was a little girl playing at the park? Life seemed so much better. When she had an attack, none of the other kids teased her. The other children were even raised to get her parents when she had one. Then after she used their inhaler and sat for a while, the other children would beg her parents to let her come back and play. Those are happy days of her life. Then came the first day of kindergarten. The days leading up to school were great. Her parents took a shopping for school supplies. The store they shopped at had the coolest lunch pail..

"Your family sought this. These family seek this all family seek this. And if we could just realize this and understand that Americans that are here, we have a privilege and an honor. We need to share that with people that are seeking this because freedom is something that we can only give in America. Don't feel the ones trying to get in here to seek this freedom. Feel the ones that aren't trying to get ahead of the sheet this freedom because those are the ones that want to harm us. So I hope this podcast said some light on some stuff. And I want to end it on some good information. Recently, they had the Salem food truck festival in Salem Massachusetts and the Latin soul kitchen food truck was there. I actually meant the driver. The owner and he also owns butter your biscuit in Beverly masks. His cheesy breast sandwich was the phantom committee's topic in this region. Also, he told me to try the chicken and waffle sandwich. So if you get a chance, go to Beverly and try them out. I also highly recommend Ellie's file house in the thin mask. If you like a good breakfast, they make an incredible banana bread French toast and they have a cinnamon syrup that goes on it. It's absolutely delicious, so please give that a try. And I'd like to share a few of these Buddhist things with you that are very inspirational. We start to slack and the minute we find excuses for ourselves. To shoulder burden is an inspiring force to a minimal mistake as a noble virtue. It is easy to reflect on major mistakes and how to eliminate small bad habits. Repentance purifies the mind, a pure mind can readily sweep away afflictions. The hardest thing for people to see is themselves. Nothing is impossible with confidence perseverance and courage and finally me and my friend is zero wonder shared a poem together and I'm going to share with you. I sit with many at the table of the creator, a servings all seem different. But what he's serving us is actually the same. Souls were fed with mouthwash, body disabled and bone, wrecks, but the ability of angels. That was the erect angles, dispensing grace to the brim, no north, no south neither. East or west, how lucky for his true disciples. Do not all teachings come from the one, is it not folly to look down on another's belief? When it is what the creator ask of all of us to believe, are we not the ones to teach the seekers the word, like the prophets of old, was not the written word first taught by the word of mouth. Faith has no eyes, but she can not speak. Oh, dear we leave empty handed. That scrolls and verses will spread alive. Christ came to fill empty barrels. Apostles each was to perfect morals, very few exalted teachers remained at all glittering. Who do we believe? We call the righteous sinners and the sinners righteous, fool, drip poison from their tongues, and many consume it like honey. Rather than dipping their bread into the knowledge of scripture and ending their true hunger. How are we the flock of the creator when we are so easily loaded away by wolves when the lord is not our shepherd? Thank you so much for listening and I hope this was informative and I ask you to please tune in next time to find out what is happening..

"When he first saw the wind pump to the library, he couldn't help but notice that the place looked like something out of old fashioned movie. The building was designed in Romanesque style with large pillars on each side of the front doors. It was a well done recreational buildings of that time period. Then, when you look next door, we saw the red brick boys club building couldn't help but laugh at the irony. Linlin, the city of sin you never come out the way you went in, Josh was singing as he opened the door and hit the library. What's that you're going on about? Kyle asks, you follow Jasper through the doors and it's a library. It's an old poem about the city. He has replied in a soft voice. Doesn't make you feel good about living here, does it? How whispered back? And is the city where evil things dwell? They come here to live, to be close to hell. That's what said with a grin. Jasper, wounds voices from behind a desk. As a two boys looked in the direction of the information desk a tall woman with short blond hair and a gray business suit walked from around the desk and towards them. Kyle gets the woman to be in her 40s. She was still very pretty from her age. I miss Melanie. Me and my friend Kyle come to see you Jasper said happily. Well, that was necessary. Are you here to check out some books, miss Melanie asked? We here hoping we could talk to you for a moment about Melissa. Jasper said softly.

That's true for every industry.

Going back into these negotiations adorn or the discussions that were taking place a number of weeks ago when the administration was saying Well, our intent is to lengthen the deal and strengthen the deal, And they explained what that meant. What That meant Woz. Certainly they were going to expend the sunset clauses. I think they should be a complete prohibition nuclear weapons permanently, as opposed to setting the time that's what they meant by that, and number two.

Which they are out of compliance right now and then, in return for that we would lift the sanctions. That seems to be the implication. That's an absolute disaster.

MLB All-Star Game yanked from Atlanta over voting law

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week. And then it'll be the defense's turn. We expect starting the following week that is NPR's Adrian Florido in Minneapolis. Thank you, Adrian. Thank you, Elsa. Critics say that George is controversial New election law restricts voter access and disproportionately effects people of color and in protest Major League Baseball announced today It will relocate the summer's All Star game and draft out of Georgia and under pressure from voting rights advocates. Major companies like Delta and Coca Cola have issued critical statements. Now. Stetson University law professor Ciara Tourist Spellissy studies the influence of corporations and lawmaking earlier today, I spoke to her about what she found striking about this wave of corporate criticism. One of the things that's remarkable about the new statements from Delta and Coca Cola is that they have changed positions a few days ago. They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

I know that part of the lockdown Woz that people couldn't get treatment for for the things that they were suffering from, And I'm also curious if there's anything in there about the numbers of deaths from Drug overdoses, of course with the shutdown. You know, mental health and drug use and everything kind of out of control. I'm just curious. How all those numbers square with the coded numbers. Yeah, Those are great questions, and the answers are not in this version of the report. We have, but we will look into that because you're right. People were afraid to go to the emergency room and we heard from the heart doctors and others that they were very worried about that trend. Yes. Oh, that's a great question,

"That the failure to recognize same sex marriage is unconstitutional. How about that? Landmark ruling. Uh, claim the government was violating article 14 of the Constitution that ensured the right to equality. Describing is discriminatory the government's failure to implement legal measures to offer even a degree of marital benefits to same sex couples. And, of course, one of the big arguments here. Woz about, um Yeah. If you know from a from an economic point of view from a business point of view that there is an a uneconomic disadvantage. If you are gay and working in Japan, Japanese citizen and you can't get married, then that's going to affect your pension. That's gonna affect your Um you know, benefits and all these other things disproportionately, then it that it would, um other other folks. Um So there you know, the Jap Japan would lose out competitively compared to you know other places where people might want to. To work or invest compared to that, and that's the same sort of argument that was brought up. In this country about Prop. Eight and the issue around marriage equality in all of that, that that is economically disadvantages. Whole groups of people not to be considered for all of the many benefits that espouses get legally. Uh, all those enfranchisement and what have you So, um Hey, hurry for her, eh? For Japan? Yes, Big You know, but there's always sort of that. There's a big difference between a court ruling something on constitutional versus the law or legislation. Uh, um, bringing in something, saying everybody's equal like the equality Act right? So plenty Still to kind of get sorted out in this case, and I'm sure I'm sure but we can we can put Japan on the list of nations that here to four Doesn't consider came marriage illegal.

Sexual Harassment Claims Against New York Gov. Cuomo: What We Know So Far

"I Way didn't even need to get to this point with Andrew Cuomo to realize that he needs to resign and he needs to go. This started way back in this one has nothing to do with sexual assault rustling 105 50 K of why I appreciate you. Being with us. This is an absolute I would say It's a shock, but it can't be because the guys is too greasy punk, and it's not really surprising learning the tactics that him and his staff used. To essentially eliminate any any threat of a claim. The first woman who came out and accused Cuomo of sexual harassment was back in December. It was done on Twitter. And the media didn't really jump on. They were like, Well, let's cover this who Let's cover this, which is also a departure from the meat to movement. And if you're looking for signs the Democrats never really cared as a party. About me too. This is more evidence of it. And there was reasons why, you know, going back years. They didn't care about it. Like everybody knew. Harvey Weinstein was a scumbag. Even I knew I didn't even work in Hollywood. But I knew the rumors about Harvey Weinstein. And the fact that the Democrats ignored it because he was a big fundraiser for them. There's pictures of Harvey Weinstein with every prominent Democrat, probably for the last 20 years. Finally, like, Oh, crap. These allegations are bad. There's this public relations campaign to try to make Harvey Weinstein not look as bad as he Woz. That's what Andrew Cuomo's office tried to do, but it's how they did it that Mike was alluding to this is reason enough. Cuomo should resign. So Lindsay Boylan was her name. In December. When the tweets came out with Cuomo's office did is they wrote a letter. And they attached Lindsay Boylan's personnel file to that letter, and they started handing it out to all the news and paper organizations. New York Times Washington Anyone they knew to try to downplay What she did and what she claimed. They said in the letter, which Mr Cuomo The New York Times is reporting helped write weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerant. Tolerated false claims demean the veracity of credible claims. So he tried to bully the woman by releasing private personnel files to the newspaper hoping the newspaper would go through, like all well, she had a couple of problems. Couple of write ups so we can't take this seriously. Luckily, the newspapers didn't run with it. The fact that this is how politics works is the part that makes you go. Cuomo's a scumbag. Well, he is a scumbag and the personal gain what they were doing, essentially, Woz. Telling the News outlets. That there might be something off. There might be something you'll get pinched with later on, so stay away from the story. I think they went away with it, Not because I mean they didn't run with it, Not because they know he's a scumbag. Everybody does. But the what they realized was oh, with this kind of stuff that we're seeing. You know what? I'm not going to touch that story. That's it is more. I just want to see why a Really do anything else because you know again, it's tough to prove these things, because if you only have one source, and you say it, do you run with it, And then, of course, the second woman came out and in said it after Lindsay wrote more of a detailed description that we talk to you about a few weeks ago, and the second one came out. Then the third woman came up to seven women now that have accused Cuomo of harassment. And there's a whole bunch of other women, a couple of a dozen other women who said they didn't necessary harass me, but he asked inappropriate questions. He touched me all the time, and I didn't really like it. I didn't know who to turn to It's so bad that the fact that there were reports on Cuomo while he was the governor. For these types of things. They went to his senior aides, and they said, Look, this guy's a pain in my butt. He's touching me. He's asking me about sex. It's disgusting. It was never stopped. I mean, what happens in the normal place of business like of I accuse Mike of sexual harassment. I go to HR and I say, Hey, Mike is sexually harassing me. I won't tell him I liked it. Get close. Yeah, I'm just saying, you know. And then there's a process that follows. After that. There's a follow up process. There's you know, investigations that happen if the claims air, credible and serious enough and then it's on your file, and then you get the warning. And, you know, we've known people that have had warnings in their past two from HR. Yes, it's taken very seriously by the by the corporate world. Joe Biden last night was asked if these these allegations are true. Should he resign? Yes. I think you probably end up being prosecuted too Well, okay. A strong stance from President Biden, if if if the investigation is that true, Cuomo responded to that. If you you committed a crime, you can be prosecuted. That's true. But what President Biden said Wasps. We should do an investigation over. I'm looking it up here. Hold on. One thing. I think we figured out. Let me look through my law Stack here, Hank. Thank you. Oh. Sexual assault is a crime. Okay? Yes. Sexual assault still is a crime. So, yes, he could be prosecuted for this. And he should be prosecuted for that. There'd be nothing better for me to

Biden Signs $1.9 Trillion American Rescue Plan Into Law

"I'm Chris Foster the Democrats coronavirus, financial relief and stimulus plan to sign into law by President Biden. Historic legislation is about rebuilding the backbone of this country on giving people this nation working people middle class folks, people built the country of fighting chance. Nearly $2 trillion American rescue plan passed with precisely zero Republican support in the House or the Senate. Presented a plan at the White House. The president found two beef two small so Democrats with their new majorities in the House and Senate. Go it alone, passing the first bill dividing presidency. Well, they really wanted was to find a way to go. Sure in their liberal progressive pay everybody built in Scott's Republican senator from South Carolina. We spoke to him yesterday. Unfortunately, they were able to succeed at that, but hopefully we'll have a chance to push back on it. It is one of the most ridiculous pieces of legislation that has so little to do with covert relief and everything to do with the progressive wish list. I mean, you could have these calls for bipartisanship, but in the end, they really they just needed Joe Manchin and other centrist Democrats, right? Absolutely. When you look at what they've done, they were able to Tonto. I don't want to go or buy off, but they were able to negotiate with the mansion. To lower the unemployment from 400 to 300, But then they extended it. The September said. In a different way, I believe what we sit what we saw happen. There was the are now paying people to stay home even longer, Not through June or July. But now through September. And interestingly enough, Chris the unemployment rate has gone down, not up. We had 379,000 new jobs added to the economy. The last thing we need to do is extend the unemployment benefits until September, when in fact the recovery as fragile as it is. Continues. Center. Ah, lot of Americans are very happy about are going to be very happy about this film, including some of your constituents. South Carolina's got something like the 10th highest poverty rate in the country and a lot of people. Gonna be very happy to get this child tax credit and getting essentially huge races in their take home pay. What do you tell them? Well, Chris, this is this is a baby. Well, honestly, the road to socialism starts with one step. And the bottom line is that what we're looking at here is not paying people for increased production, not paying people for increased challenges that were brought on by the government. They're simply making this into Progressive approach, ushering in the first few steps of socialism, and that is a huge challenge. A new study shows that all the covert stimulus caused each American $17,000. That That means that we're simply pushing ourselves in the wrong direction with these resource is being put out there. But, yeah, people like money. There's no question about that. But when they understand that they have to pay it back. You like it less when you add interest on top of that they like it even less. And when they understand that they may be compromising the future of the next generation of Americans by spending money today that we don't have that we have to borrow from China. That the bad thing for every single American in every single American child that we have the generations to come will face an avalanche of debt unnecessarily. So because of $2 trillion under the guise of covert relief, when, in fact, it's social policy that transforms the American economy. And now this, I mean, look, it's only got through because of budget reconciliation. We're spending bills. Be passed with 50 votes and no filibuster right now. Other than spending bills are Democrat. Is this a last gasp for them? Or are they gonna get anything through their voting rights bill The House passed this week and infrastructure playing this gun legislation pending If they can't If they can't get any GOP votes on anything. Might they just throw their hands up and say Fine? We're killing the filibuster. Everything needs 50 votes. Way I watched your mansion trying to walk through that minefield on Sunday, and the truth of the matter is what he said Woz that he is willing to make the filibuster harder to use that is very dangerous. Stiller Buster conversation is a slippery slope. We know that you give the Democrats inch They want a mile, and that's not good for the American people. And frankly, the agenda of the left is so radical that the center right country that we still have Is going to have an allergic reaction to the medicine brought to the table. And that may be very good for us in 2022, prayerfully and 2024, But Maurin importantly, it is just bad policy and the stench of it will, I think made people noxious. The more we see the thought that we're going to give a 16 year old the rights of vote because they believe they do better with younger people that we do doesn't sound like they're looking for a way to level the playing field. The thought that they want to nationalize elections. We should be looking for ways to limit Mail in ballots, not expand mail in ballots. We should be looking for ways to expand voter. I d not eliminate voter I d. So what they're trying to do is position this country not to recover from their lurch and then leaked to the far far far left. Those are dangerous position in their HR one. And you and I both know that we're gonna have to fight tooth and nail to protect the second Amendment. We are in for that fight. We're in it to win it. We will, because America was founded on the concept that we must be. We must have. The resource is in the arms necessary to defend ourselves, period. And that must stand and that is one of the things that's one of the reasons we should be very thankful for our Constitution, and especially

Ten years after Fukushima, Japan remembers 'man-made' nuclear disaster

"Japan then caused a nuclear power plant in Fukushima to go into meltdown. It was a traumatizing event, one that left the Japanese public and the world wanting guarantees that a nuclear disaster like that would never happen again. But can Japan make that promise? Some of Japan's most prominent earthquake, experts say. Not really the world's Patrick win has more. Okumura. Koji is a paleo seismologist. That means he studies earthquakes, old earthquakes that may have shaken the earth. When wooly mammoths were still around. It's like archaeology off course Quake. Archaeology of earthquakes. Sounds really nish on Lee. It's not. It's actually a matter of life and death because if they fault erupted even 10,000 years ago, that's a sign that it might erupt again in our lifetime, and you really shouldn't build a nuclear reactor anywhere near it. Because this could happen. In 2011 tsunami created by an undersea earthquake that squeaking noise, those air buildings crumbling in a torrent of water. And at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Waves pounded the power plant, causing a meltdown. It happened on March 11 and Japanese people still call it 3 11 shorthand for catastrophe now, Okumura. He is one of the top earthquake experts in Japan. And before 3 11. He was on a government safety panel as a caveat. He wants to say this. Nobody knew and nobody could have predicted kid. What he means is no one could have predicted this earthquake at this specific time. But Okumura and a few others were warning the nuclear industry that some of their reactors were sitting on potentially shaky ground. In those days, nuclear companies were almost regulating themselves. But after 3 11, Japan started over what they knew nuclear watchdog agency one with an unofficial motto, the new nuclear regulatory regime in Japan must be the world's strictest, which tracks with an acknowledgement that seismic risk in Japan is among the world's worst. Drew Richard is an author whose new book, Every Human Intention follows Scientists struggling to figure out how to prevent another Fukushima because that's what people want to hear. Alice that this will never happen again. Okamura, the seismologist says. That's almost an impossible request. We cannot tell when underwear a big Oscar eco cars, he can tell you this, like it or not. No nuclear problem. These profit pretty save Every nuclear power plant, he says, comes with risk, especially in Japan. Here's the deal. Japan just doesn't have much oil or gas. So starting in the 19 sixties, with lots of American help, it went heavy on nuclear to power, one of the world's biggest economies. And they did this. Knowing Japan as a lot of earthquakes again. Here's Drew Richard nearly all of Japan in nearly all the sites where nuclear reactors are built, our seismically hazardous. It's a nation that faces a level of seismic risk that's almost uniformly comparable to Seismically active areas of California on Lee, California has one nuclear plant. Japan was running 50 Woz after 3 11 that nuclear watchdog shut down all of them. It has since allowed only five to reopen. Watchdog is so strict that even experts who were advising the government before the disaster are effectively not allowed to join. That includes scientists like Okumura, Koji. And others who were warning the government, Okumura says. They just scrap the whole system for them, or the system was useless and I'm used to, and I'm useless to, he says. Other Japanese seismologists, who could join the watchdog agency won't because well, scientists don't want the spotlight the immense political pressure Okumura says. Right now, the agency actually does not have a solid team of earthquake specialist say Don't Tall, you know, professional scientists. Yes, it's a big laws. Drew Richard says. Most earthquake experts agree seismic safety is a real blind spot in a real weak spot for the current regulatory agency. And that's glaring because the Fukushima disaster was a seismic event. That's bad, Richard says. The current top seismic safety regulator isn't really an earthquake expert. He's more of a geologist, so it's a little bit like asking an influential kidney doctor to operate on your heart. Richard says most officials mean well, yet they face a traumatized public. Still looking to scientist for peace of mind the expertise of these earthquakes, scientists has been applied to Ah, fundamentally impossible question that question. Are any of those dozens of reactor sites absolutely safe from earthquakes. And as it turns out on the basis of the limits of human knowledge At this time, the answer is maybe we don't know. At this point half of all Japanese people just don't want nuclear power at all. Nuclear companies are pushing to reopen their reactors, but keep getting denied. Try again, Regulators say, Make it safer. Meanwhile, with most nuclear plants closed, Japan has had to import way more coal, dirty polluting coal warming the whole planet and people aren't happy with that, either. Just listen to these protesters. Follows at US. I'll call, you know, Call Japan. They're chanting, Okamoto says. There are no easy solutions here. He knows the public. Just want scientist to tell them their energy source is safe. What science can never be published again. It's the nature or not. You're Hauser. I admit he also admits that actually, he wants more nuclear plants to open up. That's coming from the scientist who foresaw Lay Fukushima like nuclear nightmare. Look, some of Japan's plans should clearly never open again, He says. They're just too close to fault lines. For others. The odds of another earthquake seem low enough that Japan should take the risk. He says. The country needs power. Yes, I'm afraid people against nuclear power may be hungry after me. Just try not to be too angry at me, Okumura says. He's just a guy who wanted to study prehistoric earthquakes, never imagining that pursuit could affect the fate of his country. And the entire planet. For the world. I'm Patrick Quinn.

Texas report says controversial song has 'no racist intent'

"The committee that it assigned to study the history. The eyes of Texas has finished its report today. This is 24 committee members 75 pages with an in depth review of the history of the song that burst onto the scene is being controversial last summer. After being the alma mater song Since 1903 and some of the key conclusions in this report number one it had no racist intent. When it was written and originally performed or to this day, they also concluded that they could find no verifiable connection to General Robert E. Lee. In connection with the writing of the story that performance, etcetera. They also said nobody should be forced to sing it or perform the song. Settle. Be interesting to see what the university does with this. Does this report change anyone's mind that was like, no, I think the school should drop The eyes of Texas doesn't change their mind. Just hearing that they reported this because to me, it still seemed a little bit. Confusing because I said, well, the cultural setting in which the song was written Woz overly racist, But the song itself isn't over overtly racist. It's kind of confusing and then to say, Well, you shouldn't force anyone to do. It'll be interesting to see how the university decides to move forward. We've all read about and heard about the emails that they got from a lot of the alumni in the big donors to the state that would Suggests that they better keep size attacks is in play. And then you have the other side to that says No. I'm sorry. We still We know the background. We think that it is based on racist intentions, and we don't want a part of it. And are you posing the

The One Thing About Raya and the Last Dragon That Never Changed

"Celebrating Southeast Asian culture. It's now in theaters and streaming on Disney, plus the lead character. Ryan is introduced as Disney's first Southeast Asian princess. Now, in order to restore peace, we must find the last dragon. But some critics have called Disney out for casting only one actor of Southeast Asian descent in a prominent speaking role. Kelly Marie Tran, who voices Riah. Those roles mostly went to actors of East Asian descent. Why Chan Booty is a film critic with slash film. Most of the reaction I saw online Woz praise and general positivity from Southeast Asian critics, although if you have voice the same criticism I have towards the film's melting pot approach, and even more are unhappy with the casting choices. It's mostly goes into the issue of treating Asians as a monolith, no matter which country they come from, and there is a distinction between East Asian countries in Southeast Asian countries. We reached out to Disney about the casting issue in particular, and they put us in touch with a co writer of the movie Adele Limb. And we've got a clip of her response. Let's listen any time that there is a prominent Asian forward movie or we have Asian leads. You know that one project has to kind of take on the burden because there's just not enough of them particularly pariah. We just feel so lucky that we have the actors that we have who have just connected so deeply and so meaningful Lee to their parts. So what do you think It sounds like She's setting the bar sort of low so they can celebrate it when they surmounted. Yeah, And this is an issue that is muddy even among the Asian, American, Southeast Asian American communities Riot and the last Dragon.

War of Words Between Royal Family, Harry and Meghan Heats Up

"In laws. Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, stepped back from their royal duties last year. Now she has given an interview to Oprah Winfrey on CBS that is critical of the royal family. I don't know how they could expect that after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there is an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us, and if that comes With risk of losing things. I mean, I've there's a lot that's been lost already by the firm. She means the royal family Now just is that interview was released. News reports have spread that the royal family was investigating accusations that Megan Bullied staff So let's talk about all this with the British historian Kate Williams. Welcome to the program. Hello? How serious these accusations these accusations of bullying? Well, they are. They came out just this week. They are saying that Meghan Woz You know, they're members of female members of staff and one of the words that was in the email that was given to our Times newspaper was the duchess or has to have someone in her sights. And of course, many people have said, Why have they come out now? Why all of a sudden just for Meghan how he gifted open to see which I think that the present time it's being sold in 68 countries and parenting is going to be it would be a huge interview is gonna be all over the world and this is the Last time, which Meghan Holly, I really think speak. We believe about why they left your family about what life was like in the royal family because they haven't really said much over the person say less than or step back from the war family. But I think finally, many people also say, Well, Meghan suffered very It's a bassist treatment at the hands off the British press what other female world were congratulated for whether it was See avocados or touching their baby, but everything a magazine that was all fine when it was other funerals. Yeah, and you've just by going through that have by going through that You've reminded us how much pressure the royal family has faced in recent years, and how much criticism the royal family has faced in recent years. And some of that criticism Woz over the fact that Meghan Markle identifies is mixed race. And was widely seen as not being fully accepted by the royal family. For that reason, is the real evidence of that, though That I mean, just with undeniable evidence, which she was the vet him off bassist press, she said. So she could. Harry has said. It's obvious when you compare the stories. Example, old boils or world in the Crown properties, and they are renovating for millions of Crown money. No one ever cared before. When they get in How we move into Frogmore Cottage. Britain has some kind of national meltdown over the fact that they had 2.4 million minutes. Money, spending it on The fact is that you know what? Simply how he was putting out these desperate statements trying to defend Meghan trying to say, you know, you know, it was going down the same road as my mother. Please stop. We don't know what you're going to say about the wider war family on on the sun on Sunday night's interview, she may weigh no, she didn't talk about racism in Britain. We know she's been talking about the press. If you can't talk about the royal family issue, going to talk about the men in gray suits that Princess Diana cord and the courtiers, this is all about that, at the moment, if she does, that's much more wide ranging if she says it wasn't just suppressed. What? Unfair to me, but also the war family who, in fact to me, then that I think is a very significant intervention. And that will that will really impact on perceptions of all family. Kate Williams. Thanks for the time really appreciate it. Hmm.

You are truly helping me get through this tough time. Now to this point, we've had tigers team tweeting. Couple of updates, not a whole lot.

Washington court strikes down law that made unintentional possession of drugs a crime

"That the state Supreme Court has now struck down the law that makes the unintentional possession of drugs. Ah, felony in Washington. Why did the court make this decision And what will the impacts be? We wanted to bring in a legal expert and joining us now is Debra Erin's, A criminal law professor at Seattle University. Good morning, Deborah. Good morning. So when you heard and started reading through the decision yesterday it was a split decision. What was your immediate reaction? And how did you read it? Well, honestly, I was fairly surprised primarily because and anyone who resisted the decision will say this. The Supreme Court in the state has twice looked at the exact same statute. And has determined the book. It's a strict liability statute. That's what the state Legislature seems to want and has upheld the statute. In the past. It was somewhat surprising that now a majority of the state Supreme Court justices find that it violates both the state and federal constitution. So can you walk us through what the next step is? We are now you know, Yesterday we found out about it this morning. We're talking about it. What is the next step in all of this? Well, every other state in the country has something similar to you. Our state drugs statute, and every other state either has written into its statute or its state courts have determined that the state Legislature must have meant to write into its statues. I'm sort of intention that the individual has to have to possess the drugs that they would have to know. Do they have it that they would have to intend to possess that? And so we were actually an outlier. We're the only state that actually did hold people strictly liable for any drugs that were in their possession. So even if you had no idea you had a drugs on your person or in a backpack that someone it handed to you We were the last state where that could still get you convicted of a drug felony. And so the state Legislature at this point with simply need to go ahead. We dropped the statute and put in some sort of mental state of the state needs to prove at trial. Every criminal statute usually includes a thing a person has to do. And then what has to be killing on in their head at the same time, so the what the person has to do is already in The old statute. Now they just need to add in what needs to be going on in the person's head and would probably be language to be effective. The person would need to know that the substance they had was a drug or that they were in possession of drugs. Is Debra. As you pointed out, we were the outlier. And then now we're the outlier again because now we have no statute, right? It's like we went from one extreme to the other extreme. On. I know that for people who supported this decision over supporting this decision, they say, Well, it's going toe even it out and make it so that Minority populations aren't going to be disproportionately affected by this, but this also has an effect. Now we're police departments are saying, Well, we're just not going to even Make arrests for drug possession at all. Which then means that other crimes I mean, sometimes drug possession is the like the entry into What could be ah other crimes. If that makes sense. So it's almost like handcuffing, handcuffing prosecutors and police. Right. And you know, we are in a sense it out later, at least today, right? Although Oregon in the Hall, of course, be criminalized drug possession in that state, which is now operational is lost. So it is not that is now affirmatively legal to possess, said elicit drug in the state of Oregon. But it's no longer a crime. You'll pay a fine and it's basically now a civil infraction. So our neighbors to the South also are kind of in this position, but no, I I understand that concern. Absolutely. The truth is that if someone is engaging in a possession of a drug, and then they're also doing some other sort of harm. Obviously, the police will still have a lot of food to make an arrest and certainly Groups are often very concerned that the reason that someone comes to the attention of police is they may be used drug possession as an excuse to interact with individuals who otherwise are causing other social firms. And so I think that's why some civil overuse groups are excited, at least for a period of time. Right now, please. Won't have that of a hook to be able to stop and it will be more difficult for police to go ahead and stop or arrest people based on low level drug offenses. Okay, So as of right now, though, if the Legislature doesn't act this session Could someone have a larger amount of drugs? That would clearly not be just for personal use? But say, Hey, I had no clue that I had this and get away with it. He had no. The state Supreme Court was pretty clear. I think in the decision that we do have statues that penalized distribution or possession with intent to distribute ER, trafficking drugs, and those that she's already do require the person toe have a mental state with respect to the drugs, so there are still ways to arrest and prosecute people. Larger quantities of illicit substances where you really do you think that they're selling or trafficking? It's just people who have drugs that generally would be for personal use that for right now, there isn't a statute criminalizing that behavior. This is the voice of Deborah Errands. She is the criminal law professor at Seattle University. As she joins the gene nurses show last question for you as the as the we We wait for the next decision to be made. What does this mean? For someone that is currently incarcerated that has been arrested or charged with some of the things that now seem to be going away? Can you talk about that? Yeah, absolutely. If the only thing that you have pending is a possession of a drug charge at this point, there's no statute to prosecute you under so people who either are pre conviction or who have been convicted and have not kind of exhausted their initial sort of appeal. So you get convicted. Maybe you appeal to the appellate court. People who are in that position should at this point no longer have drug charges pending or drug convictions. It's a little more complicated for people who have been convicted and who have exhausted their appeals, which is going to be a lot of folks who might be incarcerated. On drug possession charges, the state Supreme Court probably would need to separately. Consider whether or not this new rule that they have announced is going to be retroactive. Very well may be Um, but they probably will have to issue a separate decision explaining whether or not the world's retroactive, this particular litigant Woz directly appealing her conviction, so she's in a different position than someone who's been convicted, already gone to prison and already exhausted their

And who knew what when so, when it comes to Intel about the riot and what different groups planned. What did we learn? Today was thean tell there but not distributed or what happened. Well, it seems that there was a different an assessment of the House European tell Woz and also some Uh, things connections really. The former capital police chief, the former sergeants at arms All said that look based on the intelligence assessment we had. It wasn't that different of a set of warnings and what had been to the mega rallies in November and December. And so we just decided not to. Not to. What we were doing was completely legitimate. In terms of a response for what we had been a loaded with plan But then there is this genuine stiff warning from the FBI that people that are coming or prepared for war basically. And that goes to the D C police and to the Capitol police via an email. And it never gets passed up the chain because it's an email. They're not looking for any male. And so you saw the officials today saying, Why didn't somebody call us to tell us if we would have actually maybe changed our response to it? So it's a question of you know where things properly.
