"Cook. Apple's down for pie filling. It's really more of a texture. The flavor is limited. And if they're putting lemon juice in and cinnamon the not get that it could work. I had no idea that was the case. I had no idea that apple's were just a conveyor of other flavors in a pie you must convince yourself you can taste the fruit but apparently it's not like a cherry pie blueberry pie where you can taste sweetness from the the apple is just a lumpy thing. That's there and you can use apple to bulk up. Say cherry pie or rhubarb pie when you want to make expensive go. Further and apparently mock apple pie in some form goes back to the civil war before people said used saltines. What does the similar principle. Isn't it saltines ritz crackers. But they really did sink on cracker pie. It kind of apparently apparently tastes almost as good as real apple pie. Baked one and try it by next episode. But i don't want to. This is james work. They send me this well to do with red velvet. It seems like paul years like just like become stunned records while you'll have like victorious chocolate cake red velvet bula until about twenty seven. I don't think i've ever seen it. I read comprehend market. Welcome from what's it made of red velvet. What's what's it all about. So there's a myth about red velvet cake came from which is the waldorf astoria hotel invented it but parni in fact during the great depression where returned to the great depression in the late thirties. A cake company was trying to stimulate sales which had been ruined by the great depression. They invented red velvet cake and it was just normal cake. Mix with the low red food coloring in. And so there's a scientific myth as well about red velvet. Which is it was a chocolate cake. Made with cocoa and the raising agents oxidized it in such a way that it turned it red. But apparently not really. It's just food coloring to make different cake. Mix i've actually about those tell you that its twentieth. Century doesn't coloring yes. Because artists one of the great food trends of the twentieth century and of course now there's loads of prices food with food coloring in it but it's less of a selling point if somebody that was bright red now they'd probably say can we make that look natural and yet red velvet has become popular in the last five years or so. My dad had an idea in about nineteen ninety-two. He's had a few ideas. But this one sticks with me. Visionary stunned eamonn. We went to planet hollywood's. Which was the thing to do when you were twelve years. Old in no founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty birthday is very distinct qualification. And you know it was a rip off in. The food was three stars. But i was excited because there were closed have been won by supplementary characters in the terminator hanging on the wall. And you were on a planet. Hollywood well whilst we were in the restaurant that went remember this but whilst we were in the restaurant. There's a real invoke thing for theme restaurants at the time you know. This is the time where it was hard. Rock cafe was still a big deal planet. Hollywood you had the rain forest cafe just opening in london. My dad came up with the idea of a martian restaurant where all the food would be. Bright red auto hawks more so of without knowing what it was. I guess they'd have to coding in this at the adults could work out that it was about pastororal bogus. They could just have red lines. And then you wouldn't even have to import the coloring team. Which but the idea of the appeal for me as young man and i remember it still. I mean stuck with me. It was amazing. Did was that. You could order like a martian burger. It would be bright red and green and the idea. Vibrant coloring really appealed. It still does it. And yeah that's the thing about food. Coloring isn't always bad and wrong in unnecessary to put that stuff in your body. It's quite cool. Isn't it if you could make something that looks like it should have been from a cartoon mars. That is quite cool anyway. I wonder if anyone ever came up with this. Concept did it in his. It seems kind of ninety s. Vegas thing is probably rusting away. Somewhere between the strip the go go down. Even i would not be bad for me. I think generally theme restaurants still have a lot of life in the concepts not being franken benny's classic example so it's not known in one. It's themed after italian american diners in my mom. And they're playing the martin ratpac staff and talking through. It's creating a really bizarre artificial environment. Consider tree theme restaurants be rather than a characterization of what you may say. It's not creating truly artificial environment. I say if you build a leisure park in the middle of walk off. Am twenty five and you managed to convince someone just for a second there in new york in nineteen seventy five. That's quite good okay. And they do do that. And i franken benny's if you're listening. I think you're coming is a plus well-done whichever group of investors owns ranking bunnies. How's the food is where they fail is the food. That's the thing in. The food was authentic italian american food. Generous portions really tasty. I'd be and frankie and benny's every day as it is even if i'm inborn with shopping park i think i'd probably rather pop to the customer in the denims. I want more faming everywhere yet. But i won't better quality food on my suggestion. You went to the theme to town of leavenworth washington. State's goods. I told you. It's the happiest place bavarian themed or rump up. So if you've never heard of these places in washington state and it's in the foothills of the cascade mountains which are very alpine looking. They thought let's make it. Varian was a place where they used to mine gold and then guess what ran out and then they had nothing else to do to get tourist ago. Yes so they said let's theme it like the sound of music but what's amazing about it works. Yeah like if in britain village said. Let's theme like a bavarian village. I'll tell you what that would mean. Exactly that would mean on the pub. They put little triangular bunting. That's brown and they'd serve hotdogs and possibly the local post office would play on papa music and sell postcards of switzerland that yeah not enough in america when they say. Let's the town. It's the whole fucking town stop signs. It's not. The normal starbucks has to be bavarian starbucks. And i assume even like the police station mccourty steamed at the hospital. I mean certainly like to polarize every civic building in. The town centre appears to be amazing and if there is a bavarian synagogue or mosque. I wonder how that feels. You.

"New York City's Chrysler building is up for sale. According to the Wall Street Journal, the owners of the landmark building an ABA Dhabi government fund and New York developer Tishman spire are hoping to attract deep pocketed suitors from around the globe. Giving them the opportunity to own a famous slice of the Manhattan skyline. But selling a nearly ninety year old building for a price. The owners want could be a challenge here with more on. This is Wall Street Journal real estate reporter Keiko Morris Keiko the Chrysler building is a beautiful prewar building. It was completed in nineteen thirty and as you write a piece of New York history, you know, wouldn some billionaire want to own given the fact that investors have splurged on famous properties in recent years. Yes. Well, you'd think they would it's a beautiful tower. It's seared into everybody's mind is symbolic of New York. It's New York's Eiffel tower, and it's got office tenants in it. So why not? But when you talk to brokers. They say it could be a tough sell. Well, let's talk about the drawbacks to selling the Chrysler building the possible drawbacks one the honors likely struggle trying to get the asking price for such an old building they might. That's what real estate analysts say because it is an older building. And they're going to be competing against a slew of new buildings that are catering to tenants specific preferences. So the modern tech tenants, but also just the new culture of the workplace that's challenge they'd have to retrofit the building. And also, as you know with any old property, it's costs it's expensive to keep it up. So that is an issue as well. There is also a ground. Lease the Cooper union school owns the ground lease and the rents last year just shot up significantly. So those rents are going to eat into profits. So all these additional costs will necessitate raising. The asking price for selling this building. And that's a price that you know, any perspective buyer might not be willing to pay. Well, it would be a potential buyer looking at this will say, hey, what is the profit margin? I'm going to get on this building. All those costs are going to eat into it. So how am I going to value the building? Then also we've had sort of a retreat of Chinese buyers that were also pushing up prices for trophy buildings and some would say beyond their value to own something like say, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and those buyers are not in the market. So people are really looking at the economics of a building right now. Talk about the history of the building back in the late twenties around nineteen thirty wasn't there. A big push to make the world's tallest building. Yes. So there was actually a race going on at that point and William van Allen the architect and Walter Chrysler the head of Chrysler Corporation were racing again. Against downtown. There was another building being erected. And I believe it was Bank of Manhattan at forty Wall Street. And so they were in this race, and they conspired to redesign the top, and they added a hundred eighty five foot spire, but they didn't wanna tell the architects and the construction folks downtown they didn't want to reveal this, right? Because then the other guys would shove something on top of that that was just enough to be the world's tallest. So so it was a surprise. So it was a surprise. They built the spire in secret. And they brought it into the Chrysler building in pieces assemble that there, and then this was considered a feat for that time, they assemble that there and raised it on this Derek within ninety minutes, which is quite a feat for the time. Yes. This didn't last long. I guess the prestige the stature as the world's tallest building. Right. The Chrysler building opened in nineteen thirty and the Empire State building opened in nineteen. Thirty one. But safe to say, even though they didn't keep that title that building it's more memorable than than any building that surpassed since beautiful. Yes, it is. And it served as the headquarters for Chrysler until nineteen fifty three and it's been the scenic backdrop for a lot of movies. Yes. I can't remember let's see I've got my little factual. I'll help you out independence day Spiderman men in black three..

They might be giants work at the house of a little mini song. Oh, please pass the milk. Please. Is that track? On being or tips pink. Aren't you? The guy that hit me, and I wonder how many of those we could just sing if we tried to think of all of them instead of talking about the actual trombone and recon car, and there's what's that blue thing do wing here. Track. Sixty one is a mysterious. I knew it was mysterious. You know, why why? Because it sounds like area fifty one it does it's like ten more mysterious than area fifty one. Although it's not as mysterious is fifty one it. It's you can actually see track sixty one without too much trouble. You don't have to climb up to to a peak is that how you saw area fifty one. You climbed up to a peak. No, I I saw area fifty one when they tried to dissect me when I finally arrived on earth. But then I adopted a it's like, you're. Island. I go back there with your family here. It is guys. This is how I came to this great land. I adopted the the shape and form of an Air Force Major and killed everyone in the room, and then took the elevated at the surface, and then you chose a third form which is this rule, which is this. You were briefly an Air Force Major but just for a few minutes. No. Then after I got to the service. I spread my black wings and flew to Seattle where I you just do my final four, you're your. This is David is vital four. Well, that's great the secret origin. Yeah. Secret origin of well. At least my time on earth. You don't know where I came from what I really am. But even with all that access you have you ever been to track sixty one. No. Although I've seen track sixty one trek sixty one is visible as you leave Grand Central station on any train headed out particularly trains on the left hand side, you'd be heading what north north out of Grand Central. Track. Sixty one is a train station under the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. So you can picture the Waldorf Astoria there on Park Avenue just north of Grand Central like the forties midst fiftieth, maybe it is on forty nine forty nine or so just there between Parkin lex. This is the kind of thing where people who live in New York and L I think that everyone should understand all their local reference lines. And here we are just rambling on and there are many many people listening the show who've never been to New York, and in fact, future links may think of New York as just a giant crater in the middle of of of what is the Hudson river to them, or maybe it's the spark river like the ground zero monument is actually in the middle. They much larger ground zero monuments, like just concentric ground zeroes. Now, there's there's just this the top of the Empire State building just sticking out of the water. They're sticking out of a giant bay. You know, we have a lot of local references on this show. It's to Seattle city that we know no one actually understands or can visualize they think of Seattle as an archipelago of small weird islands filled with filled with basically sentient, fleece. I've seen a map of projected Seattle. When if the polarized caps were to completely no have you seen this map? I have are you on dry land. I am because this is pretty high hit is I possessed the map in fact, and you know, when I bought this house, I made certain that it would survive any any superheated lahar from any.
