Is Amazon's New Show Really Invincible?
"I want to hear your thoughts on amazon's invincible. So you know it's funny. I sat down to watch this last night. And at first glimpse it feels like a saturday morning cartoon. When i was a kid i would wake up early. Get down on the couch gate my bowl free pebbles or whatever it was and i'd sit there and i watch like spiderman and the animated adventure the superman justice league when that became a thing. That's what this felt like. It had of nostalgic feel to me. Then as. I'm sitting there watching this like i start to feel about halfway through the episode. I started to feel like burnt out on superheroes. Like i in. I thought to myself like is this. Because i'm being over saturated with superhero related media right now because the key. We got falcon winter soldier. Wanda vision just came out. There's the boys I'm watching there with my wife and sat there wondering like is this due to like superhero fatigue. What's going on. But then i realized that. Like you know and i kind of realized this when i was reading the comic books but it has a lot of from superhero stories. That have been used before you look at. If it seems to have like a lot from superman it takes an awful lot from dragon. Ball z the planet conquerors. Right or which struggles you i. I'm i'm pretty sure. Inspired by superman justly has adventures thrown in there and a murder mystery tabu as well. So there's so many elements from getting superhero things that have been incorporated into this. And like i guess seeing it on screen really brought it to life and i sat there thinking when the episode was over. I thought to myself like. I don't know if i really wanna watch anymore of this. And like i remember being surprised by a lot of the events when reading the comic books but just seeing it on screen made me feel like like. I didn't need to see it in this type of

Making Medical Deliveries by Drone is Solvable
"Explain to me how it works in other words. There's a there's a nurse who sees that. She needs a particular blood product in rural tanzania. Does she pick up a phone and call. Someone is the How does the system work. And how is it that the drones are ready to go and are they. Are they in some kind of medical base to start with. What does the system look like. Although there's a lot of complicated technology behind the service that we provide the experience of this service that solve is extremely simple which is essentially a push a button on a phone. Get the medical product that you need to save a patient's life delivered to your gps coordinates. There's no training really required for nurses or doctors health workers. They can place orders in a number of different ways other van online form or by calling the phone number or also by using what's up what's up actually winds up being incredibly reliable kind of infrastructure In in a lot of these countries and so any nurse or doctor health worker complacent order all of the complexity of you know autonomous aircraft and like getting regulatory approval and knowing how to do safety and maintenance et cetera is kind of handled in the background. They'll get a text message. Saying thanks for letting us know order has been dispatched. It is twenty four minutes away and then much like using ridesharing. they'll get a tax when it saying. Hey the products one minute away. Please step outside. it's gonna be delivered in turmoil. Box and the drones. Really move fast enough to make this work. Yeah so the juicy simple technologies blind builds distribution centers and the aircraft themselves we employ teams of engineers operators at each distribution center on each distribution center can serve around twenty thousand square kilometers or something. Like eight thousand square miles Which is typically between two ten million people so for example we cover the whole country. Wanda to distribution centers cover the country of ghana with about eight. That's where we store. Inventory of medical products and then each distribution center will serve around two hundred to four hundred primary care facilities in hospitals and each of those facilities is getting a delivery often several times a day sometimes several times a week depending on the size of the facility would essentially teleportation. It means that now it's possible to teleport products from central place out to all these different places where patients may need something. The benefit of having teleportation like service for national health care systems is that they can dramatically improve access particularly for renewable populations. They can reduce waste. Because you're sending less stuff out the last mile and before it's actually needed by patient and finally you can actually increase the diversity of the products that are available at prior carefully so it makes it possible to treat patients closer where they live
5 Mistakes to Avoid when Preparing Students for Standardized Testing
"Standardized. Testing can be stressful. But there are some things you can do to minimize the stressful situation and the such students up for success and i know that this year is particularly difficult because about testing students during a pandemic is not something teachers want to do. So i'm here to give you some things to avoid when thinking about standardized test one thinking about standardized testing whether or not. Your state is going to do that this year. So the first mistake to avoid is to not explicitly teach test taking strategies throughout the year sometimes as teachers. We can wait until a month before the test a week before the test to teach students those test taking strategies am i saying teach to the test no but when students are familiar with test they can strategies it will help them to reduce their test anxiety because they have strategies to use when they get stuck if they they don't know the material and they can't move forward and also test taking skills are used beyond school so important for students to learn to be able to use their tests they can strategies and just as an example in my adult life. There are numerous times when i've had to take tests to demonstrate my knowledge in nineteen talk about google certification in order to become google certified. You have to take a test. Is it a standardized test. No but it's a test that is going to demonstrate my knowledge so i need to have those test taking strategies to help me and a students need those test taking strategies the second mistake avoid is not simulating the test environment. Simulating the test environment will prepare students for what they will encounter on testee. If students are familiar with the testing environment. They can focus on their test. The third mistake is not exposing students to practice test items. I did not know the power of exposing students who practice test items honestly. A former principal of mine is the wanda injured. -duced this to the teachers in our school myself. It was eye opening because once we started doing it. We saw that some students got stuck with even understanding the question and it's just unbelievable how exposing students to the test item health. Help them to prepare for what they were going to encounter on testee and the students saw the level of difficulty with the task questions. Teachers had to encourage them and let them know that they could do. It may look different from what they were taught in the classroom. It is something that they will be able to break down and figure it out. The third mistake is not teaching students how to use technology tools in the test or that will be used in the test after proctoring multiple test. I noticed students did not know how to use the tools in a standardized tests that they were taking for example something as simple as dragging and dropping students who are not familiar with. This will have great difficulty answering. The question are tackling the question. Some students because they have never been taught how to use the tools like the highlighter. Function will sit there and play with the tool so teach students how to use technology tools in the standardized tests. And you know we can say that students they're digital natives so they know how to use these things but do they know how to use the context of test taking setting. That was actually tip number four or mistake number four so now we're on mistake number five and that's not teaching students how to check their work or answers. I've seen this time. And time again or a students will not go back and check their work. During a standardized test teaching students how to check their work will prevent them from making minor mistake. Second cost them. Having students check their work on a continual basis is also a best practice for instruction some key takeaways from this episode number. One is to explicitly teach at test taking strategies throughout the year. No we don't wanna teach to the test for students need to learn. Test taking strategies. Number to simulate the test environment make sure students know what they're going to expect an environment on test day number three expose students to practice test items sit into able to see the level of difficulty number four teach students how to use the technology tools in the test or that will be used in the test and last but not least. I know that there is a lot of controversy surrounding standardized tests this year especially with everything going on but i do think there is some benefit to teaching students test taking strategies and all the things that we talked about previously
Bob Lazar, UFOs And Aliens!
"In may of nineteen eighty-nine and interview with investigative reporter. George knapp appeared on las vegas news channel k. l. a. s. a shadowy figure under the alias of dennis explained exactly what was a secret facility south of groom lake in the nevada desert nine flying saucers of extraterrestrial origin are being stored analysed and testify. The subject explains that he was tasked with reverse engineering the propulsion systems of the crash and did not know how the government had gotten hold of these crafts. The shadowy figure was eventually revealed to be bob lazar in a subsequent interview where he revealed his identity. Bob lazar who Has a bachelor's degree in physics and electronic technology from pacifica university and he continued his masters at mit. He's a very very very interesting figure. Did you know before we started this researching into this. Did you know about him. I did I watched the netflix documentary. Just a super interesting individual. And i ended up going back in like watching his interview with koa s and And seem like how all that played out in the incredible reach that it had after the fact you know it was translated into multiple languages. Played over the entire world and people were gripped by by this man's story in what he had to say because he he seems so credible. It's seems like everything he's saying really has weight in is truthful the fact that he started this with not really seeking the the attention or seeking the accolade but actually just seeking to get the information out there even hiding his identity that some might say that that would be the the behavior of someone trying to hide something but i see it as behavior of someone who is trying to protect themselves. Because they're saying something that that may actually be factual dude. I bet he is phone calls every single day. People trying to get a hold of this guy people trying to email him and all kinds of stuff and back when this verse back when this first came out. I mean think about that. The technology and the communication that they had then you know people people today are used to getting like notifications every single day but think about how he felt getting all these phone calls. When i mean he's just a regular guy he. He was picked up because he has like a coup wanda and now he's this huge figure. Even thirty years ago. I mean it's just insane. Yeah i mean. He said he used to have people camping on his lawn. And stuff. and you you to remember that within the ufo community. There are a lot of people that are. I don't know how to say it a lot of people. That are a little strange. So for those people to becoming too bob lazar and it's got to be slightly terrifying and you'll see as we kind of dive into his story that i find him very credible. I find everything that he says. Very very credible in a lot of the stuff that he has said in the past Eventually comes through. So basically he gets his degrees from mit and At university he starts working at a los alamos research lab. And i believe los alamos and working On physics and nuclear weapon research which is what what the lab does obviously and then during his employment there. Alex kind of set it. He builds a jet powered honda. It's kind of extravagant thing that he drives to work everyday. It's literally a jet on a honda. Civic nazi looks like something out of the future and he built this thing. I mean he built us thing in eighty nine. I think it might have eighty nine was one he actually worked as for so yeah it was. It was probably around eighty four. I think So that gets the attention of the los alamos local newspaper who put him on the front cover with his jet cars. Jet honda that he built and that that's a little bit important to the story later on so kind of put a pin in that. So he's working at los alamos and he says that he leaves los alamos and goes off to start other businesses. That that turn out to fail now he never really goes into detail or at least i couldn't find what those other businesses were but he a couple years later wants to get back into the science community
WandaVision: Scarlet Witch's Magic Breaks the MCU's Rules
"Week i talked about the nexus nexus being and how wanda is going to be the next this being the next is being being the one that can control the their the prime in in the universe but they control like the multi-diverse and i don't know about that now i i really don't know if that's if wanda is the next us being because they introduced in this episode. They said that. Wanda is basically the kind of like the conductor of chaos magic and we'll we'll jump into chaos magic here in a little bit. But what were you saying. Steven i was gonna say. I took the confirmation that that they are heading there without officially giving her the label of the next being like giving their own cute different name. Which is the chaos which or whatever it was using chaos magic but chaos. Magic is something completely different than the next being chaos magic but it's basically chaos. Magic is basically create a had it written down what agatha said She says to the this. Chaos magic wanda that makes you the scarlet witch And then it says. I don't know it's from somewhere else. But is chaos. Magic is the name of magic so powerful that it was thought to be nonexistent. Even by the source where supreme this magic can be manipulated warp and reconstruct the very fabric of existence and reality for the user and it brings total destruction to the cosmos. Yeah rebecca slow. Isn't that i think that's the thing that's not from this episode though that is from like you know like marvel wicky fandom which i mean trip definitely could be something that she's able to do but in this episode the way that agatha described it was basically you can with your yet. She's capable of creating spontaneous creation. She says you have no idea how dangerous you are. You're supposed to be a myth. A being capable of spontaneous creation. Here you are using it to make breakfast for dinner. This chaos magic wanda

WandaVision Episode 7 Breakdown
"All right. I was excited about this because as we were texting i was literally going. I knew it. I knew it throughout the whole episode so very satisfying for me and you also knew it. And i can't wait for you to brag on that moment in just a minute but first this week the sitcom style was modern family meets the office and as a fan of both of those shows. I loved it. Wanda was very wanda's parts were were modern family and visions parts. Were the office. So it was like a weird. It seems like it would be weird. But i liked it. It worked for me. So we start with wanda dealing with the aftermath of the halloween episode her expanding the hacks her trying to say vision her dealing with a fake brother and her kids are like really worried about her. They come upstairs trying to figure out what's going on their game. Is glitch ing which shows that things are not completely under control anymore. They're game went from like a week controller to a believe. It was like a dreamcast controller. Who atari and then to just you know playing cards. The kids are like what is happening. Billy tells one that his head hurts. Now that's this is an important moment. Not only because every mutant on the planet. I'm pretty sure that has telepathic. Abilities has at one point in their origin stories. Said it's so noisy in here because they can hear everybody's thoughts until they learn to filter and really kind of controller powers. Jean grey charles exhibitor. They've all dealt with that Yes ashley stay out of my head. No because you won't stay out of mine so anyways that's important to hold onto because it's gonna come into play later. Now they do a whole office montage for the opening credits. And there's a quick shot of a it. Looks like one of those ransom notes where they've cut out a letter from a magazine or newspaper. It says i know what you were doing. Wanda who is that. We don't know. There's also a cute little amish to stanley in the license plate that says wanda and i just kinda hope like i know. We're obviously not getting any more cameras from him. But i would love to see something of his or something that reminds us of him to show up in each of these shows and movies going forward mice personal like i dunno to sense outside. Sword has mustard together and they are preparing for a massive attack on westview. Because once again told you so hayward's bad guy like a really bad guy. He's not even trying to be a good guy right at the recently. Not second he might have announced good enough so told you so. Vision wakes up and he's surrounded by the sword circuit and darcy is inside the circus as the escape artists. So when we last are choose being sucked into the heck's and she was wearing hand she was handcuffed to like the sword vehicle. Well now. She's escape artists but she can easily get out of it. She does not remember. Who vision is. She thinks he's trying to hit on her. She's like hard past dude. I'm like not into you like this is not going to be a thing. Envisions like dude. Don't you remember. We locked eyes. We had a moment you understood me. She's like no and just blocks away from him The boys are wondering where their dad is and wanda says. She can't force him to do anything. So it's again i think. She is finally accepted the fact visions outside of her control
Wandavision is breaking open the multiverse in the MCU
"Wanda vision has been one of the more fascinating. Mcu projects well ever introduction of x. men quicksilver as a multi verse wrinkled thing. So let's discuss. What this all means. Chang the daily charge. We're off today for president's day so we pre-tape this episode and decided to have a little fun with one division so here to help us is dutiful. One division recap sean kane. Welcome sean thanks for having me. Are we technically speaking from a different reality. Then since we're you know this is from a different time. Kind differ time for sure. We'll see what happens on monday. We can't really predict what's gonna what's going to be like on monday. We might be in another universe. I don't know clearly marbles having some fun here teasing or potentially even breaking open the door to the multi-diverse with with wanna vision and full force. Boiler alert The last episode aired on friday. So running the some money so hopefully if you are watching this you've already watched it but this is just a bit of a warning. We are gonna go into spoilers. We're going to speculate about the whole show so if you had a washed it and you do intend to watch one vision and especially the pacific. The latest episode. Stop here go ahead. Watch the show. Come on back so that side. Let's let's jump into it sean. The last episode. Well let's get actually. Let's talk about episode five and ending episode five. That's when we the introduction of quicksilver and quicksilver not played by the actor who was an age of altron whose name escapes me for some reason But actually by the x men universe's version of quicksilver. A an interesting wrinkle a very interesting twist that has all kinds of implications show. What did you. How did you react to that that big moment at the end of episode five. Yeah it was wild. I mean like when the doorbell rings or the can't remember. I got really excited. All who is this like is this going to be atro- and it was and it just gave me the sense that like it. It's all fair game like any marvel cinema now. It feels like we could. We could see reference. Which i love. I love the idea of the acknowledging all that history and from a business point of view it makes a lot of sense to get people to watch all those x. Men movies dark phoenix which was one of the last x. Men movie set in that universe. Do very well the cinema and it just i think people are so invested in the marvel cinematic universe at anything from outside that fields in essential at this point but now i suspect people go to revisit those socks x. Men movies which there are a lot of good ones sobat woods. Some really bad ones but generally worth watching. I would say
New trailer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premieres during Super Bowl
"Want to talk a little bit about the falcon and the winter soldier trailer for we get into one division. Do yeah thank you for giving me that opportunity. This show looks like it's bad boys. That's what they're doing and that's good. I think that's good. I think it's fine. I think it's fine but my my not hot but it's not cold take is the pandemic did feigen favor. That's my take wanda vision. It is better for the brand long-term clearly there was some jitters whether it's been good short term for their push into television in onto disney blues. But better for the brand long-term to have something that was formerly interesting slightly surprising in unexpected launch. It whereas this feels. I'm sure it's gonna be entertaining. I'm hundred percent going to watch it with you. But it feels like the safest possible thing you could do to transition an action movie franchise to the small screen.
The Internet's Calling Out WandaVision For Being Too Boring
"It seems like designing. It seems to me at least at disney has been kind of unconscionable in the response to these first few episodes. They're having like with mandalorian. I feel like we got nothing right like they. They're not showing us previews not giving us interviews with people but every week like there were offered like a new interview with the cast members and like this week like we got clips like that kind of like were a reveal of look. This isn't just going to be the sitcom if you guys are worried about this being a sitcom in your marvel fan this is gonna get more marvel. Keep keep on to this. Like i love the show. I'm not saying anything bad about the show. I feel like All three of us are in the bag here for for that. We're we're people that are supposed to love by also understand that there's probably people that teenagers twenty s. You know even early thirties. that haven't watched old sitcoms. You know didn't watch like i did and are probably like what is going on here like. Do you guys feel the same way that i do that. Like it seems like disney was kind of worried that they might be losing marvel fans with the first few episodes the clip in the sizzle. Reel that they put out thursday morning. It played a little desperate to me. It did i. And i'm usually on board with. I think disney's very smart about marketing. That they do. And kevin feige is always gushing about how wonderful of a job disney does marketing all of marvel studios stuff. But it did play like. They're a little worried. That people aren't on board with the sitcom idea in. Maybe you're worried that that's all that it is. But i also felt like it was redundant because the end of episode three shows you very clearly. I mean the end of episode one pulls back in shows who you know i. I don't know. I splurged from the episode but It pulls back and it does show that somebody else is watching something here that there's a world outside of this episode three makes that very very clear so i i don't know why felt the need to show as much as they did and and maybe i'm just assuming too much. Maybe this was the plan all along that they've already these they have their spots and what they're going to market and show when it's all been laid out well in advance and they're not reacting to the reaction online which is still mostly positive from what i've seen With respect to wanda vision But as of viewer who was already locked in ready to watch the show at midnight. Pacific time thursday night I could've done without that spot especially a couple of the visuals in it. Like the big board with idea of the different people in the town Could've done without that. But yeah i was a little confused. The why they were showing so much and not being not playing things closer to the vest. Yeah i've i've seen like complaints from people and it's usually just the more casual viewers. Who are like. They're probably not paying like tons attention to the marketing And like they're just waiting to see what happens and they want to avoid everything at all costs and i think that they're watching the show and there were like. Wow this is all it is like this is supposed to be a marvel. Show like people are saying that they were bored. And i think a lot of this also comes from people who aren't super familiar with like classic television and they'll understand what they're trying to do by opening the show like this and realized that those the the things in these few episodes make what's happening now that much more impactful and irie And suspenseful and mysterious you know and so the complaints are unwarranted. I the marketing definitely feels reactionary. But at the same time marvel does doing so maybe they assume that this was how they were going to play out the entire time. But hopefully hopefully people stop griping about it because now they're getting marvel side of what they really want
Chelsea Joins Call To Baker Administration To Get COVID Vaccine To High-Risk Communities Right Now

I it seems like a no brainer to me to be honest. I Oh quote my husband while we were talking about this. You know I you know. I was happy when i first heard about a huge Distribution center in gillette stadium But just the you know the look it it makes sense to. I think they were talking about incorrect me wrong about five thousand vaccines day. That's the goal. The goal is to go indeed But my concern was its location. You know for You know someone like me and my family the same family. Since i'm a healthcare worker. I get it differently but you know to go to foxborough to receive it. It's it's sort of one of those You know what a drag to have dry there but for my patients and chelsea most a physician for some people in the surrounding communities that is quite a barrier. You know many of them don't have cars Or and they also don't often don't work jobs. They have the flexibility to take off. You know and gortat foxborough to get their vaccine and when i was speaking about this with my husband we you know he said well sort of i'm giving credit him. He said well. We know when there a fire you. Don't you know the fire truck. The fire department comes to fire. You don't take fire. The fire department is one of the things that you're concerned about. Dr gonzales is is even if there is a vaccine available. It's not very practical if you can't get to it. Is that what you're saying. Exactly

Dick Johnson Is Dead Movie Review

Marathon had raving about Shantelle Ackerman's John dieleman movie about a woman who hardly left her home this week we returned to the marathon with Barbara. LODEN WANDA WITH JOSH allows us to wonder what may have happened to John Dieleman if she just walked away and left her good for nothing son to make those. Veal cutlets for himself while there that is a thought experiment though John and Wanda very different people i. don't know if it would have gone down just like this very different people very different films that marathon review of Wanda coming later in the show.

Yeah. What can we do that? Everybody has sort of prepare because everybody dies watch too much for that. After more than two decades as a prolific cinematographer shooting her share of relatively straightforward documentaries, which isn't to suggests boring inconsequential but more traditionally fly on the wall Kristen has now directed to inventive decidedly unconventional ones. Two Thousand Sixteen camera person was a memoir comprised exclusively of footage shot across the globe eighty six different countries Johnson filmed in I believe is the count the content was, of course, deeply personal, filmed and curated as it was by Johnson though only explicitly. So in home movie clips of her twin toddlers playing with our camera and scenes over mother suffering from dementia. Her latest could be called the act of killing Dick. Johnson due to the way she employs fantasy sequences to tackle tough truths as Joshua Oppenheimer did with his twenty thirteen doc about mass killings in Indonesia during the mid sixties. Johnson, the daughter and filmmaker is more upfront. This time we only hear her voice over we occasionally get to join her inside the closet over New York. City.

Means to carry a camera especially in a world that is seen great suffering. We've established how Dick Johnson is dead is more expressly personal than camera person, but it also might be a more provocative consideration of what it means to carry a camera in a world in a family that has seen great suffering not that Kirsten Johnson necessarily crosses the ethical lines and putting her aging father. Through the ringer staging, sometimes playful, sometimes gruesome death scenes for her own Cathartic Purposes I. think we can probably forgive the time. He soberly complains that shooting in the cold on a Manhattan street while covered in fake blood is even more painful than when he had a heart attack. But how much is this exhausting process actually helping him to process the inevitable and does that even matter? But now it's upon, US Kristen Johnson says in her opening video the beginning of his disappearance, and we are not accepting it as viewers. We can't really ever know whether making this movie Got Dick or Johnson any closer to acceptance, which you can't evaluate Josh is whether experiencing Kirsten's death affirming stunts, brought you any enlightenment or at least enjoyment

"Channel this rage and despair and vulnerability. And I think I had started with Sonnets I, started doing some scientists and they were just called for my pass and Feature Sas I. Think I wrote three hours of the first one like the morning after the election and then by the Sunday after trump was elected November thirteenth as Wanda Comas birthday she's a Scorpio I'm a Scorpio twos. Or Scorpio's and amber. Tamblyn, who is another big fan of hers was. Reading on like he was at burroughs maybe in Brooklyn and on that morning when I was getting ready to go, I was like these like one Masan is I have so much more fun. If I just pretended I'm wanting to Coleman. and. So I went on writing and my goal is really Ryan for four years until trump got out of office to use them very much away. She used poetry just to be like you know what these are going to be crazy days sometimes I'm not GonNa know how I'm feeling the poem is going to help me be mad sometimes I just wanted to cuss and say all kinds of stuff. So let me do that but that was all Wanda giving me permission in the form the Americans on it So you know I guess sometimes because the books been couple years now where people will sometime say like that looks very different like even some of the words you're using your worth I don't even use like in the polls, right? Profanity's all kinds of stuff an like that's why I'm the Coleman trying to. She gives me permission to actually be wrong a little bit to just be mad to be inappropriate. So Permission is it's not imitation. It's more like stretching everywhere. You can't. It doesn't mean happen go to a specific poem imitate it means like you can sound any kind of way you WanNa, sound here when you're trying to make these forms work, there's certain ways that she's pushing for him and push pushing language. And using all of these things again that like no one else is doing I can't find models of people that have that kind of laboratory ICAL lyric density registered busy. So she's a great source for that, and even if you're the only person doing it, you're all I need if you follow me. So I would say like if you look at my body at work whatever you think of it, you certainly see a different sort of language maybe a certain kind of looseness I hope a certain kind of freedom to all on the Coleman. Thank you. That's a whole bunch of stock just cut that up. I saw you getting gradually hotter. I was thinking like should wrap up kept saying stuff. I'm used the. Term I just. Got Some poems. Absolutely did you feel like there's one that read that you're like? The title comes from what? The American at number ninety five. So this is just like when I was going to call the book I thought about this I also say about this poem to you know like when she second out like from here, I can see the clock Tower Secrecy Nyu you know what I mean. She can see these scenes where she's not And thinking about like this thing that she does this. She has been doing through all of her adult life and through all kinds of tragedies and all kinds of birth glories is a wicked enchantment even sometimes when she reads them like the spell that's being cast. But, the wicked part of it is like There's GonNa be trouble that comes with something to be enchanted by something like this. So anyway so this is the poem American sign at Number Ninety. Five. Seized by wicked enchantment. I surrendered my song. As. I fled for the stars I saw an earth child in a distant hallway crying out to his mother. Please don't go away and leave us. He was I saw my son. Immediately. I discontinued my flight. From here. I can see the clock tower in a sweep of light. Framed by Wild Ivy. It pierces all nights to come. I haunt these chambers. But. They belong to cruel church FIDE INSECTS Among the books mind go unread. Dust covered. I write about urban bleeders and breeders but em troubled because they're tragedies echo mine. At this moment. I am sickened by the urge to. Smash. My thighs present themselves. Stillborn. Misshapen Leagues.

"Do you think that there was any place group of people or you know where she didn't feel excluded where she felt like she was a part of. Well, she was a strong woman. So you have to think that strength came from some other places like I. Think she was born with it, but I also think she would put herself around people who? Made her feel actually strong as opposed to people who made her feel like she was less than that I think that Austin was tremendously supportive of her she was her core esophagus strong but you. Know when I think about the various tragedies in our life like losing a sign that stuff is just still sometimes in the basement of the poems it's flickers through but. The tragedy sit as next to those kinds of victories and those kinds of resilience in the same manner When I'm interested in this is to say to you is like I'm actually interested in those flickers of owner ability across upon yes. You know what I I pulled out another sign air because she has a sequence and sometimes just comes up into longer poems to where she sometimes just writing letters. So she's got a series of letters to her sister that was lost like never maybe born maybe it was older sister was miscarriages. Georgina is so those poems show up across the books not just in one BOOB, but there's letter writing. was always. I mean I. I'm sure I could find something that makes me say that this is not fully true but the letters always seem a bit more vulnerable when she takes on that voice, they fill a bit more intimate and so this poem here America Sonnet, Fifty four I said there's a couple of other poems that ideas cousin they just show up so much and I started thinking that she does have someone in mind when she's writing these poems. So again since like family but also since distance the sense of loss thinks he writes poems like maybe addressed dresser father as well but there's also this thing about vulnerability. Anyway. Here's one of them. Sign it. America's gone at fifty four. Dearest cousin. Forgive this ruined narrative begging the first element of creation. Last time I was here I was here. Now I wonder what exactly are the components of my invisible spectrum? Sun Ra. Rising. I went for a reading of palms to rediscover disappointment. Better and almost was said the gypsy than a never was. Her peculiar conjure left me staring at my naked Brown feet for hours. When reverie broke it was near Dawn missed had oh clued volcano and I found myself old alone signs shelter from the ever blessed heat. This note is sent perchance. You've wondered what befell one adventuresome one so long ago lost. Dismissive, an empty ronrico bottle said Adrift on a Sea of Flute. Music. This repetitious rendering of pain For on my one palm island dwells no such beast as joy. Come on on one palm island twelve. No such. A beast is joy the beast of joy come on. And since they are so this note is sent chance you've wondered what befell one adventure someone so long ago lost come on. James. Senate. Whatever where the clue is like all the way at the All kinds of stuff going on there. So Dad Palm is again this other thing that's also in the fire, but comes out of the fire a bit more burn. Like she typically comes out of the fight harder like steel but sometimes, she comes out and she left those poems into the water as well as poems as shore as like. I'm trying to change, and maybe this is the life I've been given in the palm reader. Who's like well, almost wasn't a never was, and she's like I'm looking at my naked Brown feet and I'm old she's feeling all kinds of on our abilities in a moment like that But then you get the music, you get the delivery. You get a witten. Shooting through there and you again, there's resilience comes back. Yeah. Yeah. There's you mentioned already the series of poems written to her older sister and I think the first one sort of explain what's going on I think her sister was Warren but not never christened because she. Name. So she gave her the name, Tour Gina but. Yeah. I was wondering if you could read the one on page two, hundred, sixteen. Letter to my older sister six. Before you could you could. You maybe tell me a little bit more about her father because I had the sense that her father is really really important to her. I'm looking because you know it's how she ends the Ryan inside me the essay about going to her father's grave. So she seen the riot dealing with Rodney King riots, and for Solis she goes and I think this is the very end of the book. I decided I had to get out of the House and drove out to the cemetery I had not visited my father's grave in over a year. I did as usual took grass clippers a rag and bottled water got down on my knees and tied it up asking as always do the unanswerable. So he is he's a major muse for throughout it what that means for the individual relationship or the kinds of jobs he had I I think I concentrate more on the sense that he was looking Muse Garner through the poems. I'll say this to you know. Like again in Wanda Wind you did. I hear you don't like Black Man I know that that is coming to from the world that she inhabits is coming out of like how do you mind with the Black Arts Movement? How do you line up with black aesthetic and so she is addressing no stains. On its way like I'm GonNa love who I love. But for me to evidence that like, no, no brother should feel intimidated by the fact that Coleman had a couple of white husbands because you see all the work. Sincere and insistent and recurring. Love for black men black people. So the father I think is at the core that. So he just becomes amuse anytime he shows up, he's a source of strength. Inside the, poems. Yeah. All right. Letter to my older sister number six. Hi, George Georgina When you see pop Telhami said hello. Just a few days ago as we call him in the light of my near. Death. We were once again standing off in the dark stall of hospital admissions. It was October nineteen, fifty seven. His forty third birthday was days away as was my eleven. and. I was sick with delusions and fever you know s said elsewhere. They've never quite left me. I was wrapped in my favorite heavy blue blanket pulled straight off the bed and Mama's panic. I was in those blue and white print flannel. PJ's so. I was so sick. I couldn't stay awake kept going in and out of consciousness. I listened that night as pop and Mama desperately argued with the white admissions nurse and begged her that I be allowed to see a doctor. They just didn't let any Negro child into the hospitals in those days especially, if the physician didn't see the admission himself. I can't drive this city without pop. Tell Him. I'm sorry I haven't been able to keep up the gravesite. Tell Him I'm sorry that things have worked out as I'd hoped. Tell him I'm sorry that rent food transportation are still the big issues. fell him I know it's late. Then I'm over do. Yours..

"Strikes me is not her rage. It's like you say it does on the page as rage. Maybe justice humor there it to me. It looks like clarity. Yea. I'm just going to go back to like. So let's do the trump the angry black woman thing. Yeah. I think that she is engaging that too I mean she was angry and she was black black in the most she will tell you. she was intimidating all kinds of stories of those things she was found with that though her attitude again to go back to miles, Davis would be like, of course I'm angry But how that angry shape is just another kind of thing. So I'm saying like I don't think he was run away from any kind of throat I think that she certainly was even sitting inside of that because she had every right to be. Angry black woman, but those palms are again taking that thing taking that sorta being this that everybody else is putting on her they everybody else's looking at and saying you know we see the color of your birth and just doing something with it all the time just make it into something more than a Kinda. Clean Response. Clean we action to her enemies to her detractors to her foes. The pawns is so much more than that having too much fun to. Look like revenge or vindication or even showing off even like you know they're just she's having too much fun to be too concerned with just like one kind of reader or one kind of problem you know yeah exactly. What's the palm that for you is really Where you can just see her having fun on the paid. See. There's a couple of years you got me on now. About it I mean here's one Oh you know this is one that she does audio of this one float that floats around actually never read it out loud. But you hear her voice when she when you would do Yondo under warranty dead. So she's having fun in that even though that's the kind of fun she has. This is why I say anything about Richard Pryor and separating that intensity from Richard Pryor sort of humor versus big asking shimmering because quite funny to she was very funny to But again because of her circumstances if I can find this poem, her humor. Is, always, got a little bite to it. There we go. Fifty three. All right. Let me see if I can read this one. And this is her having fun. Wanda by aren't you dead? Wanda when are you going to wear your hair down? Wanda. That's a horse. Wanda why ain't you rich? Wanda you know no man in his right mind when a ready made family. Why don't you lose weight? Wanda why are you so angry? How come your feet us? Oh, God. Damn big. Can't you afford to move out of this hell hole? If I were you were you were you were you. Wanda. What is it like being black? I hear you don't like Black Man. Tell me Your AC DC. Tell me you're a NYMPH. Oh, tell me you into chains. Wanda. I don't think you really mean that. You joking, girl you crazy. Wanda what makes you so angry? Wanda. I. Think you need this? Wanda you have no humor in you. You are too serious. Wanda I didn't know I was hurting you. That was an accident. Wanda I know what you're thinking Wanda I don't think they'll take off you. Wonda. Why are you so angry? I'm sorry. I didn't remember that that that that that. That was so important to you. Wanda. You're always on the attack. Wanda Wanda Wanda I. Wonder why? It's really stinks by the end right I mean like. The beginning sort of I, your laughing and for a while, and then all of a sudden it just turns. You US money like I said, I have some audio reading she she kills it. So as I was reading it I, I was Kinda like China channel her sound but eventually, I realized that I could just read it as myself that that voice in that poem, which so often heard is her speaking to herself. Yeah. I this very perfectly with me speaking to her as well and I think it would probably work if you read the poem. A why do read the on anyone read the poem because she saw suggesting that these critiques just coming from everywhere as well as inside which is why she could read the poem to and it never occurred to me. That it might not actually be. Speaking to herself yeah, exactly. So You right early on in the introduction to this book. You quote a mentor of Yours who also knew Wanda and she says about her she she was mean. and. Then you say, yes, she could be mean What what made her mean? Wanda, why are you? So angry now that's the question she's always giving. So I was getting. So the poem is like going through all those questions. Again I mean this is why she's a an amazing poet and this the poet that I aspire to be it's like everything I feel is a record everything has been recorded in the poem. So it's like any question you ask is to be able to open up a poem and answer that question upon that certainly how I believe Ronald Goldman lived so I there yet but I'm sort of saying. All the evidence of intensities theirself was there. So again, this poem is thinking about that kind of question and she gives us instances. So when she says again, the way I've always heard it was her saying you know I don't black man but of course when I say something like Austin her last husband who's white white Jewish painter flashes through my head and you know those kinds of marriages were always going to be a talented their talents now and so she's tracking that to like not only are white people saying that's wrong. But this black people saying it's wrong to Sir since of anger again is like multidimensional she's not really She's again not really reacting to them. Even the way the poem is positioned, there's questions I still saying she's not the person who's like just GonNa level a single response to a single instance instead she sorta revolving around that question and letting it meditate and then saying what you're really asking me is like why I'm not dead yet which really saying, we keep trying to kill you you keep getting mad but you keep coming back. You know. So again, without ever saying anything like that, she's able to tap into that sense of People's being being perplexed why she's me she's and she's like read the poem. You WanNa set you WANNA know why I met. The media this poem. But that's why this poem interesting it always feels like she's drawing map. With all of the ways in which people have problems with her. and. Mr. Right and the way that she has problems with yourself I mean nobody really gets off the hook here..

"One of the things that I think she's trying to work out at that time is what to do with her rage. Like okay. I don't WanNa just have an angry outburst on the page without does not make poem the shoe, and so I'm wondering since you were able in all of that he's published kind of more trace and track how she was learning. What can you tell me about some things that you've noticed like where you noticed her figuring out how to write her rage into a pound? Well, she says something that I used to say about people before I knew she said it. Extended so what I would say to people is Wanda Coleman on blacks barrel and the star of Blacksburg for most of that time is caused mccaskey. So what I would say people who weren't familiar with her but maybe knew who cousy was like well, it's like A. Of black on them from Watts and those earlier poems like that. So rage but also just inappropriate. Raunchy. She's got a poem. He's having sex with her partner and then the cops burst in and all the things that happened you know so. And they leave and they continue on. Yeah. So happen rage that you're talking about would invoke be cow ski but also maybe Richard Pryor. So as not always the wolf which she talked about in the poems is also like. Ways that she's shaping that rage. So I say again when I was looking at her work I thought because he was her man. So I was like Oh. That's what she was studying. That's why they were on Black Blacksburg, but then she says, she just realized they weren't alike because he just didn't have same kind of music day she does. Kings plan are just a different kind of ear. She's very lyrical poet she likes to play with their sentences. She's not always going to be narrative in the way that cows can be narrative and those gas. You know they're him and you can hear his delivery of you ever heard him speak her poems. If you've ever heard of delivery see changed a voice changes are pitched. So it is like she's projecting Kinda, persona on the poems or various kinds of personas on the poems. So again, those earlier poems, they're more narrative, more anecdotal moron she. So you can see that relationship, but again, she evolves past that. But one of the places that she started our ready with few steps ahead of the caskey would have been just again her musicality, her lyricism. Inside the poems. Yeah. I'd love to get you upon where her music. There's a couple. Of different kinds of ones the title but here's why is music. So this point about this one, this is American. Sign it. Number Ninety Four. No strong nostalgia my notes on never not know collect against my reluctance forced tabulations. They did this say me and that that that there why have there been no arrests no hearings no justice. What is not offered cannot be refused. I regress the despoil child, the deserted schoolyard weeper. This is your execution weaver. This is your groveling stone weeper. Yours is the burst and burnings of a city stunned tearless in the uselessness of limp pursuit breathlessness besets and brings the ASS earthward rest the answer yellows and loses its wit. It's crispness my bed to make my heart to stake my soul to take how committed suicide I revealed myself to you. I trusted you forgot the color of my birth. Can you walk me to where? Where like what is she doing? Can you tell me? So it'd be gives gesturing like something like narrowed or something like mood. So knowstone. My notes are never not I know collect. So she's writing all the time again, I'm going to say it as if it's Very much close to her her speaking Wanda Coma Self. John also thinks he does in the poems quite a bit. His voice cousin why have been no arrests? No hearings just as you can hear a sorta just talking to herself. So that's most of that rhetoric that's not narrative. But then we get the stanza break and she's like regress despoiled child. It's D. E. S. P. O. L. E. D., but it sounds like spoiled. The despoil child, the deserted schoolyard, and then this thing about weeper. Execution, it becomes highly metaphorical, but she stacking up the weeper. This is your execution for this groveling stone leaper. So that's not an avenue that's extremely musical. You can find anything like that anywhere in Bukowski and then sort of moving onto the poem my bed to make my heart to stake my soul to take how committed suicide I revealed myself to you I trusted you. I. Forgot the color of my birth I mean that's all. That's all music and image and innuendo moving through that bomb. Yeah I. Sorry, I, want you to close it yet because. I WANNA, with. Music. Sure. To take the musical analogy really literally. Almost. Like in a four four beat or something and then it all of a sudden goes into like a a measure of three or syncopated something. You know where it loses that kind of rigidity that stacked NUSS and it becomes snaking. Couplet stunned tearless in the uselessness of pursuit breathlessness besets and brings the ASS earthward. So she's essentially tied in situ as down but all those s sounds Lincoln through there I mean she has a little bit of punctuation through here rest period but mostly she's leading syntax and syllables liberation the sounds of the words themselves sort of dictating your speed as opposed to like break on a comma period. Dash. So that is that is snake that is nick. Yes slithering. Yeah. But but the thing with her poems I think that they. To go back to rage. What The Look isn't this is this is, I mean, is this rage you know breathlessness besets brings the ask earthward. This cynicism, the answer yellows, and loses its wit. My bed to make my heart steak, and then how I committed suicide that's a question I revealed myself to you I trusted you I forgot the color of my birth. So I'm trying to say that with something like that, we get in the direction of rate but has not reached something else that's happening there has that in the water if you follow what I'm saying but there's other kinds of things that are happening again even like where that question comes from, who is that addressed to is at us that read these poems that look inside of her head. I trusted you I thought if I let you see who I was who I was, but I kept forgetting that you just want to see me as a black woman you know. So again, that's It's a contemplation and it's a hot contemplation, but it's something i. mean she's using arrays like if you think of Israeli. Impotent feeling. Like what do you do with that rate? So maybe it's beyond rage like she walks through the day with that raid and when she gets to her her desk, she's doing something else with this. So you can see again how everything in that poem we this is your execution we this is your growling stone. There's something there again like rage but more complicated than raid but who is the director to is it to the south? Why are you crying throughout this shit get tough is that to the south so again? All those kinds of dimensions make something like. Is this because she was angry? Much more. Rich of a kind of exploration much more dynamic, a question than opponents. Right. But that's my. That's actually why I wanNA come back to this question of rage because well, first of all, there's a trope of the angry black woman right which. We can't discount sure and then second I feel like when I read her poems what.
"wanda" Discussed on Poetry Off The Shelf
"This is poetry off the shelf. I million degrees today I love you, wonder. Terrance Hayes was thirty when he first met the poet Wanda Coleman. They shared a stage at the chace center in. New York in two thousand one but he doesn't have a detailed memory of the event. You've been reading one KALMAN's poetry for years and simply to awestruck to notice much beyond quote her frenetic, sometimes lyrical voice, her towering hair bangles and big wicked laugh end quote. Still a friendship developed between the tall kid as terrance Hayes describes himself through her eyes and one Coleman who was twenty five years his senior and had already lived a life. So full and often. So difficult as a miracle, she got any writing dead at all. Let alone twenty books of poetry and prose. One Coleman was born in L. A. Nineteen forty-six and as a girl she loved music and she loved to read. She was also a politicized pretty early on what does she liked it or not If I sneeze it's political. She met racism and Colored Ism in school from both kids and teachers. At eleven when she was deadly ill with meningitis, the hospital refused to admit her a black girl and her parents have to carry her back to the car and drive to another hospital. As an adult, she was often met with violent treatment by police about what she wants wrote quote weighing well, over fifty I favor pantsuits boots. Could I unwittingly be tapping into hostilities usually reserved for black men and? Then, there was a political context. The summer she graduated high school the Civil Rights Act was passed. She went to protest against the war in Vietnam and black, panther lead mutual aid meetings. A year later she saw her neighborhood of Watts, erupt enrage decades, police, violence, and lack of opportunity. It would happen again almost decades later when a jury in. Simi Valley acquitted the policeman who'd Beaten Rodney, King? Inbetween, she wrote while working few jobs and raising her three kids her son Anthony would die of AIDS, when he was only thirty one. And she struggled with grinding poverty pretty much throughout her life. When I sat down with Tunes Hayes I wanted to know as he was reading through her poems in deciding which ones should go into selected poems wicked enchantment. How much biography matt to him. Were you also making an effort to be clear about what happened in her life where she born like, what appearance do what what were the big sort of events in her life? Did you keep that in mind at all? Were you not so interested in that? No it's partially why and shows those segments from her nonfiction books. She wrote the riot inside me because I mean, it really could be three movies probably for the different kinds of way she lived the mini cons of lives that she had having said that you know the premise of like what a friendship would be for me anyway between poets is usually about poetry. So you know. Anything that I would learn about her would be via the poems whether they were imagined. Auto biographical. I think we would just bound by poems. Yeah. I am still going to ask you a few questions about her life. Sure. I wanted to start with childhood. Sure. It seems like she was a little bit bored at school at School. She wasn't getting what she needed and so she gave herself an education of sorts like she read the complete works of Shakespeare by age ten then high school she went onto as she calls them the heavyweights, sackler, me Haida. As well as playing the piano. Violin. Quite a bit. Yeah. How like what I'm just curious about is how come she ended up reading. Heidegger those are not the most likely names. How does anyone in reading those things? I. Think it was a curious person. How about this? So I'm just going to do this again analogy of what something is sorta rift on and the introduction, which was her personality, which was intense and fiery. And I pretty much say, well, you know him mouth Davis was also very intense fire even with the acknowledgement that he was a genius. He still felt like in his body and even his upbringing the class and he came up with his dad was A. Dentist I believe is very wealthy. So him to go out into the world and hit with his dark skin. Brilliant Self. He was always angry about people sort of seeing something other than that really is. Wanda Coleman same way except in the introduction on by but say that no one ever even acknowledged to the degree that they did miles Dave's trumpet playing say he never really got outside of I'M NOT GONNA say Illinois but outside of the village and so that's an even more outrage mouse avis and that is the parallel that I would say to you so to draw back to your question. It was really like you know she was brilliant and curious being. As she tells it the thing that sort of further isolated her was come to terms with her body I, don't think her parents center out into the world saying you know they're going GonNa, call you big black and Nappy I think they sent her out into the world, her her curious and brilliant and talent out they trained her to be that person and so the things that she men on the side of that are the things that sorta outraged that makes an I'm saying she was brilliant. That's why did he thinks period? There was no other using base brilliant as anybody else that finds these things at a certain age and the thing that SORTA. Warped or shape. That was this idea that other people weren't seeing it. They were seeing something else before they saw it but it's everywhere from the beginning of her life to the end that the genius is there all the time with this outrage and I think that's the relationship between that outrage. Yes. She was confronted with people's ugly opinions of her as soon as she went out but she was also confronted with those in those books I. Mean You know Nietzsche is The theory about mention it was later used by Hitler and his leg superiority complex. Heidegger was a card carrying Nazi like. I mean I'm not saying like that. You know you read. Of course, right? Because she was a critical thinker, I mean reading those things doesn't mean she had to absorb everything of it. I, mean I think she was a a thing that I joke about sometimes every thought has at least six is to it. So you just you stay on this side of the thought and it seems like that's it. It's wall, turn this corner, and so the idea is like the. True critical thinker is always trying to like not just a black and white side not on the side of the wall but how many dimensions are there to any sort of anything in the universe how about that and I think that that was what she was a critical thinker. I'll also say it's in her work because they mature across she has a section called rogue, Anthology where she just imitating. Every poem from this contemporary American poets from maybe nine hundred, sixty, nine, Mark Strand edited. So there's people that a are arms mark Strand Frank O'Hara. Never talk all the people that were sort of really important at that point she took it on. This is really early on in the process she bright mature promised powder's a little later. So let's just say from the beginning she was. Looking at what people were doing, imitating, what they were doing and sometimes not positive way. In a not so positive way, and if you go back and look at those points, I think people will see what I'm talking about in terms of the. Could conduct not she will level. So that's what I'm saying. You've both learning from heidegger and also leveling critique that because she was a critical thinker, right? When she graduated high school, this was nine, hundred, sixty four. A lot happening in La there were all these Lavin's and sit.

My guards are awarded. They can't be frozen their flames. Can't be put. Now you'll pay for your interruption.

But only if you bring the books back here and read your favorite five. Wait five whole books Wanda wailed. That's the deal you can go on the quest but you have to do the rest Wanda thought it over. Five books was more than she'd read all year but a quest an abandoned wizard library in the middle of a swamp.

She lurched forward with an youth and then rocked backwards nearly falling off her broom. What in the weird she said looking about. Finally she saw it. A shimmering bubble in the air around the tower barely visible she recognized it as a magical shield spell but who had cast it Wanda looked up and down and around but there was no one to be seen. Shrugging she pulled out her wand and pointed at the bubble wrapped around and over top bubble. I command you pop. A Bright Pink spray of magic needles hit the bubble but they bounced off and turn to smoke in the air as they drifted away in the breeze. Wanda heard a deep wicked laugh. The Tower store opened and a wizard. In robes of iridescent black drifted out still laughing he conjured a golden throne and sat down letting it lift him into the air.

"Thanks ENJOY THE EPISODE WANDA WALL. Good wandering once upon a time in a weird would there was a witch who went by Wanda Wall. Good she wasn't the old kind of which you picture. You know the ones. I'll and wrinkles and moles and a head full of stray cats for hair. No Wanda was a young witch with just the standard amount of warts and wrinkles and moles though. Her hair was rather mousy and a stray cat. Probably did get more brushing Wanda Wall. Good was a wild which which meant that. She was never much for her reading and writing. She shunned her spell books and shirked her studies. She lagged each lesson and lamented learning. Like she'd lost a love. She was a wonderful witch in many ways always eager to search for a Birch bore or peruse upon until she was muddier than a worm on vacation but studying. It wasn't her cup of tea exit. She didn't even like t reading was fine but she'd rather be on vacation with the worms. If she was being honest this upset her terribly. They were raising her. As per habitual which e tradition their names were biscuits and towed though they were always together so it didn't much matter which which was which high viscous and towed now they were the kind of which is you picture. One was long and lean with more words. A friendly frog farmer. She had hair. That looked like a broom and road on a broom that looked like hair always billowing in the breeze. The other was burly as a brown bear though basically bald. She sported a star spangled shawl and spectacular spectacles ECLECTIC. We selected from ethical. Select ables behind them. She blinked blindly with Badische Browse. They were wonderful witches and Wanda Wall. Good loved them very much. Even though ever since she had turned ten they were all over her like nude is in potion. Who Want. When will you start studying high biscuits said one morning? Well to be honest. She said it every morning but this morning was special. Even if Wanda didn't know it yet you can't just muck about in the mud like a maniac. Wanda looked to toad for support. But her aunt just smirked eyebrows arching like bent bowes. I'm afraid I agree with my sister said towed sipping a modeled Mug of Putrid Purple Potion. You're a wonderful witch but you could be a master caster with a little. Learning WANNA looked from one aunt to the other she knew this day would come but had hoped to allude. Its protrusion for a while yet. Do I really have to read? She said can't I just look at the pictures? That's the fun part anyway. Oh this is. All our fault really continued high biscuits. We've let you linger over long. No more though said towed. We found the perfect quest for you. Something that will get even your brain burning about books and slug slurps salty snacks Wanda muttered. No it's true said high viscous we've been reading some maps and comparing them to the lost text of Bobbin the bright more like Bob it in the boring. We think we've located his loss. Library said toed holding up hand to stop. Wanda faked a snore. It recently apparently appeared in the center of a swamp. It'll take a wandering which to find it.

You know, I'm not going to give you your money back, by the way. But yeah. Well, I'm glad that you brought up pootie Tang because I've just been waiting for an opportunity extensively. So basically, the along with the film babe pig in the city, probably the most important thing on this program. Maybe a little bit of wet hot American summer, but mostly it's just pootie Tang talk on whole Cy. All right. Let's take a listen to my guest Wanda Sykes in pootie Tang, which is like if you've never seen pootie Tang first of all you should watch pootie Tang because it's great. But it's kind of like a surreal tribute to blaxploitation the premise of which is that pootie Tang, the titular character is so cool. He doesn't actually have to use words and big shorty Wanda Sykes. Character is a streetwalker who is has a similar level of self possession and coolness and so in this scene. She's on the corner. She's dancing, which is like the main thing. She does listen, listen, we're walkman and dance around on the. Corner and a guy asks her how much right? Two. What's your problem? Just like the dress fanciest down the street quarter some paused hoping June. Dislikes to stay on the corner of. Dress fancy hanging. This is their thing. Let's run with that. One of the things that so great to me about Putin Tang. I mean, besides just says, it's just one of the funniest things. I'll be a little bit of a mess. Well, a lot of a mess, but real funny and one of the things that's really great about it something that it's rare that you get to see a comedy that is mostly African American performers where they are being really silly. Yes. Yeah. I mean, there's when have you seen like a like black Monty python? Not saying that we were python at all. But yeah, I think that that was the beauty of it. It's it's just stepping out of the out of the norm. You know, just why can't why can't we be silly? I mean, I think it's you know, if you if you want to talk about what white privilege is one of the big things is that you. You get to step out of the norm because there's just a lot of white people. And you know, when you're the main voice, you can you can be an alternative voice. And when you're fundamentally an alternative voice 'cause there's just a lot less people who skin colored, then you don't get to do that. Exactly where it's a lot harder to get to. Yeah. Yeah. Black and year Dylan comedy, you bet. It just be damn funny. Yeah. Yeah. I can I export this. Nope. Nope. Standards line. But you know, the thing that I love about biggie shorty as with pootie Tang. But it is the the self possession that she has is so extreme. Oh, yeah. It must have been just a thrill to get to do that was so much fun. Yeah. I mean, she has such conviction in light. What the I t own that. Owned and that was so much fun doing that. It's just great to just walk in a room and go. I'm right. I am right. That is nothing that you can say. The mid would make me think otherwise what a feeling. Wonderful. Thanks. I appreciate you. Taking the time to be on bull's eye. Genuine honor to have you on the show. So admire your work. Thanks a lot. Thanks. Happy.

"wanda" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"That she is depicted wanda isn't that she is detached she's removed from the audience she doesn't connect with any of the characters and therefore shouldn't connect with us really and that's hard for people because we expect that female characters are emotionally exposed in him to destroy their misery in front of us so we can analyze them and it's a double edged sword too it's like we expect our female characters to be emotional but at the same time we ridicule them living they are i guess off the top of my head would be sawn so from game of thrones much she's a very emotional character especially early on in the series end she got ridiculed for all oh she got a crush on joffrey at stupid bitch at like it's like you can't really win you know and wanda is a good example of that on the other end of the spectrum where the icy blonde can't win not unless she's a grace kelly you know she doesn't have a lot of expository monologues she doesn't tell any the character is directly how she feels and so we the audience can only know what we can say eight allies see the closest we get to sort of exposition is the photograph with her husband at mr dennis fines as a laser her wallet and also when he asked her about her children later on in one of the car scenes and just says they're better off with their father just no good that's the most how to get young never find out if like she had any real interest or was just or few was bullied at school or she had any other boyfriends like we don't we don't know any of that a risk for her to be a shitty mom she just is yeah and she just is the one moment that's really telling me that happens on here is when she is i with mr dennis and they've had their first night together.

"In where she's walking in the black hole if they can like oh jeez they couldn't cough like thirty seconds but at the same time it it is kind of the point of the movie that is just very slow and aimless and if somebody asked me to summarize wanda and a single frame that would be the frame that i would pick because it just captured so much and how she's just devoured by this world and just can't really seem to be come of significance it's aimless and stuff and there are times where i keep thinking that this movie is going to turn into something else like early in the film she stops by this sweatshop and goes in and she's asking for her wages for the last two weeks was like no i already paid you and she's like but it was supposed to be twenty four dollars new game eight nine dollars and he was like he almost does the line from raising arizona you know government do take by don't she i'm thinking like oh well this is going to turn into norma rae or something but it's no norma ray now she's just like oh okay and he tells her flat out like you just were too slow and her reactions and everything just really make you believe that she works way too slow because she's just so oh alright so kind of flat and beat down i think that's the thing is she just seems so beat down by the world and she never really gets beyond that and the the real.

"And yeah it's that stuff it looks like it's very realistic that image of the lone woman against this backdrop is it felt very real effect very real to me as someone who grew up in mining culture or or jason too i should say in like i said we get her just kind of moving in and out of the scenarios like i kind of 'em getting the feeling that there's going to be a court scene because we get the introduction of this guy who's driving down the road and this station wagon and he gets out and he's yelling up to a guy that i think he works with and he's saying you know i'm gonna be laid i gotta go to court and then eventually we see him at the courthouse and that's where wanda shows up at and this whole thing like i say it seems like he seems to be this seems to be happening nothing is necessarily handed out in this film we don't get a whole lot of like there's no no real information dump as we go through here we are just kind of there as a fly on the wall we're just experiencing this as this film is unfolding and we're not getting a lot of hand holding which kind of appreciate if feels very french new wave it feels very new cinema if felt a lot it reminded me a lot of like the killer of sheep just this kind of like you're experiencing a family person woman just how this is unfolding and things changed throughout you know she ends up in the courtroom to your point from earlier she doesn't fight for her children and so we're like bawaii is that but she just seems so noncommittal to anything it just seems almost like she's more thankful to be rid of these people and to have the freedom but it doesn't seem like she really has a stake in any game because she just moved from this scenario to another scenario to another scenario you know next.
