"Of World Record banana. Thing at a jewel. How is that even a record? It's not like the bananas are doing anything. They just like, there's a record for you get a bunch of bananas and put them in a room and go, wow, look at the bananas. That's not a wolf. They line like a whole wall though. It's quite impressive. No, it's not. They got a bunch of bananas. If the bananas were doing the cha cha, yeah, or if they had the world's biggest banana, show me a 40 pound banana. And by the way, if you just joined us, we're talking about bananas. Show me show me something extraordinary, but a whole bunch of bananas in a room is a whole bunch of bananas in a room. Bob, you're witness. I think it's cool. I saw a picture of it and it's just a massive wall that looked to be the length of an entire or maybe the width of an entire jewel store. It's all bananas. Pretty amazing. Aren't we about having a food crisis? Folks can't afford food. Well, they are giving them away after this. 8 one 5 says, hey, tell producer Pete. You got to use Harry Chapin's bananas as a bump here. Or you could do the chiquita banana song or you could do the theme song from the one banana two banana tree banana for Troy la la la la la la that was the banana split. The banana splits. That's my favorite banana song. What's yours? Give us a call. A Maryland, this is John. What did you want to say hi? I wanted to tell you that I was really impressed by the banana display. I was driving past yesterday and I didn't know what it was for. And about a block from it, I saw this glow of yellow. I have never seen so many bananas in my life. And I didn't know what it was for. And of course I thought of Harry Chapin's 30,000 pounds of bananas song right away. And I didn't find out until today that it was the viewer trying to set a record. But it was amazing. So if the bananas weren't doing anything, other than glowing in the sun. It was really something to see. Which is the location of the jewel food store that has it is its Cicero. I believe it's down its grove. Okay, donors grove. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. So do you think it was really close to itself? It wasn't attached to the jewel. It was in a dual parking lot, but it was really close to the street. And we're downtown Chicago. Do you recommend that I get in my Chevy blazer and drive out there to witness the bananas? Well, not necessarily, but I'd say that the pictures don't do it justice. Really, it was just amazing. And I guess I had heard that they're giving the bananas away because it seemed like quite a wasteful stunt. But it was worth seeing. Well, there you have another glowing review of the pile of bananas in westmont from Martha. Thank you so much for Marilyn. Thank you so much for the phone call. Okay, thanks for listening. Bye bye. There's one for you, bob. Maybe I don't appreciate who doesn't appreciate a wall of bananas. Go coming on to bring it up and show you picking up on this.

"Know i it's not like you can't in life start with like you know how do i wanna phrases. I feel like this. This movie could have been an interesting opportunity to write someone. Someone's behavior meaningfully. Changing in a way that could have felt authentic and also could have been sort of a character map for young for young people who yeah especially young men watching this movie because it's not like even in the context of the movie. I don't doubt at any point that landon cares about jamie and. I don't doubt that you know that teenage boys very often are deflected toward people that they're attracted to especially in hetero context and like whatever it's like. That's something that i experienced in high schools like the one i had a crush on. Not being nice to me and then like having to apologize and over time like maybe of an a friendship built but you have to especially with like movies for young people. I feel like there is some responsibility to like. Really track that journey in a way that is responsible and not just like randomly putting the onus on jamie to be the world's most forgiving person and i don't think that it's like impossible if the story were written differently or or a little more deliberately. I don't think it would be impossible to get land from the beginning of the story to a place. Where maybe he has meaningfully earned jamie's trust but that's just not how we see the story play out there or is very choppy In the way it plays out. I do wonder how much how much the has to do with her. Maybe not being available. Like i know that she's a teen so she can only work ten hours a day and they shot this in thirty nine days so i wonder like at first i was like i think disaster go back to the you know kind of christian ethics that they're displaying this where it doesn't make it doesn't make sense for that storyline to really get into jamie but also maybe mandy moore had to bounce one day because it does seem like after her leukemia diagnosis like she has that scene in the bed but really she's kind of gone from the movie at that point she's like not an african art like she says thank you thank your dad and like a look at this comet and then does she. She's saying i do. She just like hugged him and then they're married right. Yeah they did. They even get married We don't know we checking in to see like how she feels about like. She knows that she is dying like and there's a part where she says something like. I don't need a reason to be angry with god. Like can we explorer. That's a cool like that's an interesting thing to bring up like a crisis of faith a priests daughter like and it's all set up but instead yeah i feel like the movie divert and ends up focusing on boring landon side plots knowing gives a shit about because it should be a movie. That's about her not about him right. I i hate to keep bringing up religion but again like that is very jesus like like jesus had crisis faith but he never lost faith he would just be like Dad what's up with this god damn it. Yeah yeah. I don't know it's it's like jamie is perfect to a fault but the mo the moments that you see her human side. The movie doesn't seem interested in exploring when it's like want to get back this time. Those are the most interesting moments where she is affected by how people treat her and she is angry that she is is dying and there are like she does. Have these really human emotions but then she yeah. I guess in the christ like way you're describing. Sam she just kind of transcends them offscreen then it's like an it's all and it's all good and shane westmont to medical school right so yeah i don't know it's it's but i still like it. I don't know. And i wanted to go through the Production the people behind this production so there is people we've discussed on the show before there is a female screenwriter here. Name's karen johnson This is another denise di novi movie who knows. Come up on the show a lot shoot. You seem so interesting yes she was like a millennial childhood shaper big time she. We talked about her kind of extensively. Because she got both little women's the winona one and the greta gerwig one made but Quick rundown in case. You forgot who denise says some some of the heads. Edward scissorhands nightmare before christmas. Both of the little women's practical magic walked. Remember what a girl wants. Sisterhood of the traveling pants. New york minutes failed mckee nationally movie And crazy stupid love which we just discussed on the show right. So she's behind a lot a lot a lot of big movies and even in a lot of them are movies that are specifically marketed at teen girls. But i feel like a walk to remember even stands out in her catalog because it seems like the only kind of aggressively christian movie in this. Yeah in this catalogue And then i just wanted to shout. The director of this movie An openly gay director. Who p- who was openly gay at the time of this movie Started as a choreographer then switched into directing also directed The wedding planner which we've covered on. Yeah oh yes yes yes. Yes the hair spray. The two thousand seven one He just directed what men want which everyone didn't lie and He is also directing something that i wasn't aware existed which is a sequel to enchanted starring. Emmy adams the final fun fact about the director. Whose name is adam shankman. Which i don't think i've said Is that he officiated. Sarah michelle gellar freddie prints. Juniors wedding. wasn't that fun. they're also still married. they've been married for twenty years and then washer commercial. What are they. There's a dishwasher commercial where they're like making a bunch of innuendos about doing it every night and then it's like yeah. We run our dishwasher every night. It saves water. And like i this. I don't hopefully this is but like i think i can i confused their marriage with carson daly and tara reid brunette guy blonde lady and curse curse whatever that other relationship definitely didn't last but it was a big deal freddie prince junior and sarah michelle gellar three names. You know six names. Between the two of 'em it's destined to last. Yeah of course health. They're washing dishes right now. Also that's really. I'm like they have. How many years since they've done a dish. Let's be real for seriously. They use a dishwasher. Read that's true. That's because they use the dishwasher Another quick behind the scenes thing. This movie was edited by a woman. Emma e hickox shoutout to emma. Your over the last thing. I wanted to say we called attention. To this i think in the recap but there is a surprise. Kiss in this movie. That's a really really sneaky. Surprise kiss. Because i didn't even realize it was a surprise kiss until my second rewatch. But it's when in the play landon kisses jamie after. She sings her song. Yeah and i originally thought that that was like a scripted..

"Seeks to clear the clutter, the noise and the half trues for deeper, discipleship to Jesus. How are we to make sense of what happened at Pentecost? The next chapter two, Luke describes this amazing moment when the Holy Spirit fell upon them in that room where there was rushing wind and tongues of fire, they began to speak in other languages and thousands of people came to know Jesus that day. But how are we to interpret that and make sense of Pentecost and its impact on our life today? And also, what does it mean for people to be part of a Pentecostal church, which is one of the fastest growing movements in Christianity in the world today. I'm not part of a Pentecostal church. But I want to know more because I want to know more about the Holy Spirit of my life. And so I'm really excited to be joined today by doctor Holly beer's professor at westmont. Doctor beers graduated from north central university in Minneapolis, earned a masters of arts degree in theological studies at bethel seminary in St. Paul, and completed her doctorate at the London school of theology in England. She specializes in Luke and axe. And the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, philosophical hermeneutics and second temple Judaism. She's the author of the followers of Jesus as the servant Luke's model from Isaiah for discipleship and Luke and X and a week in the life of a Greco Roman woman. Holly's also been voted one of the best professors at westmont, which I know that's a great honor. And most importantly, she's family. Holly is my cousin through marriage. She's married to my cousin and brother from another mother max. She is three amazing kids and I'm finally thankful to be able to introduce her to our community. And so Holly, thank you for joining us today. Glad to have you here. Oh, thanks for having me. I'm happy to be here. This is awesome. I know it's taken a while, but you've been writing a lot and just wanted you to give us a little background on your story of how you became a Christian, and then how you were called into being a professor at westmont. What's that journey been like for you? Good question. Well, I was raised in the church, I was raised in a Pentecostal church actually in rural Minnesota. That's where we're from. My husband's from there as well. As you know. And I remember when I actually committed to Jesus, I was probably 5 or 6. I remember having that conversation with my dad and praying and deciding to make that real for me, after my dad had clarified that just because he'd had decided to follow Jesus I didn't mean that I automatically would. I have to choose. So that, I mean, I grew up in that..

One of the cheerleading coaches went up the chain to the assistant principal, then the principal in a cell for now that you've got cheerleading. Mom's involved things could get ugly.

It was just a teenager's temper tantrum. And she's had, you know did she is punished in various ways?

Free speech and rights and all that sort of stuff in the school's argument is Look, It's just it's disrupting the classroom. We can't teach because everybody's all worked up about this. You know, I understand your point of free speech everything but we can't teach because of this, And I wonder if you end up with that in some schools. Words. Look, it's just all the kids are doing is saying mean things right on Facebook and the teachers and saying that all these things and It's the only thing anybody talks about. That is not a non issue. I've been privileged to be friends with some really terrific educators through the years and the whole keeping order in school thing is getting hard and so I do have sympathy for them. But the problem is If, if the If the standard is if it causes uproar and distraction, it can't be done that empowers the heckler's veto. Sure, if I say so. Legal argument? Sure. Well, yeah, I had a feeling you did. But if if I say something perfectly reasonable, for instance, in the walk crowd starts screaming, it's racist. Even though it's not racist, and that causes you know, divisions and in anger and fistfights, or God knows what else in school then the school can sanction me for having said something perfectly reasonable. And that zoo not good, better the animated contest of freedom, then something other servitude.

We're just it wouldn't hold together. It's not open insubordination. It's over in the world of free speech. Didn't say it in there. Not just the locker room.

Hundreds of people showed up the station on Saturday, which is in the Westmont neighborhood near where kids he was gunned down by deputies last week. I saw the demonstrators brought bicycles because kids he was cycling when deputies approached him after sundown, the crowd dwindle. That's when the L. A County Sheriff's Department says some people started throwing objects and that deputies responded by firing sting balls and pepper balls on Twitter. Some demonstrators accused deputies of firing without provocation. No injuries were reported.
Interview with Jim Seimas Sports Editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel
"A very special guest the sports editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel 23 time Associated Press sports editor award-winner Jim seimas, Jim. Welcome to the show off you drop. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it Jim and I have had the awesome opportunity of meeting each other in a couple of different capacities over the last year or so first. I met you as an intern for the pajaronian wage when I was reveley scholar studying under Brad kava at Cabrillo and then later, you know in my role of sports and Information Specialist at Cabrillo and you obviously still with the Sentinel we wanted to be on the show today because Danny and I are both making money in our careers as writers, you know, we do writing here and there and I guess you could say that we had an innate interests in people who not only right but also write for the Sentinel because we've had on Ryan Masters before a former Sentinel writer who body surfed at wage. Rick's back in I think 2006 that Joe is that the year that he at Mavericks something like that. I'd have to double-check his old writings, but it was early mid two thousand. This may be late home or remembering and Ryan was an amazing interview. He was really fun and we kind of learned our lesson that when it comes to having guests on the show, you really want to look for people who are comfortable using their words took a story and who have a lot of experience kind of funneling down their information, but for somebody like me who grew up reading Hunter Thompson and a lot of writers that came originally from a sports writing background. I've always had this this Romanticism if you will of of what a sports writer is and that was kind of pushed ahead by working for Tony Nunez who was at the time the sports editor at the potter onia now, he is the managing editor and you know working with you and meeting Julie and leading one and I guess it's really cool meeting these people who spend dead. The the bulk of their time living in sport and and kind of articulating and taking sport out and a big part of what I've tried to do during my time to Cabrillo is digitized r-sport make them available for streaming online. Mostly for the purpose of trying to let more people get a chance to a common experience that activity as we enter a world following this covid-19 Choice. It's not following yet. But has we live in this kind of post covid-19 world the time before fans will be allowed back to watch sports happen will probably come after Sportz get back underway, which means that people like us are all of a sudden going to be really pushed back to the Forefront and be creating this bridge to connect people with this activity that they truly love and care for or players or teams or whatever. So kind of from that launching point. Where where did you first get started as a writer and what made you decide that that way? Are you were going to you know, keep the bills paid? Was funny cuz I interviewed so many kids that are college committed and asked what they're going to major in and half of them don't know and I'm fine with that. But I and then there's other kids who do they knew in fifth grade that I wanted to be a sportswriter. Excuse me. I have some allergies here. So I, every now and then around fourth fifth grade page and initially wanted to be like the San Francisco Giants announcer and there's only two of them and I know like connection to baseball whatsoever other than being a fan and I kind of even figured out that age like hey there I you know X ball players are getting these jobs. You're not going to get one and then, you know, just taking radio television type stuff and you know if I had a face or voice for neither, so I just kind of jumped into you know, a fifth grade. We did a little writing project. Would that where we had our books published or bound at least and I can't remember it was unbeknownst to me boss. So maybe in a contest and I wasn't a very good writer, but it won an award and I was very happy about that. I still have that book in my basement. I would like to say it was probably like Game of Thrones before Game of Thrones happened, but far simpler only three pages. So, you know, I did my own artwork for it with you know, drawings and swords and blood. Anyway, that was awful. I was hooked. I obviously don't like didn't read recently like a large audience at all, but I have so much fun writing that I really enjoyed creative writing in junior high school besides that my writing was absolutely atrocious growing up all my papers were covered in red ink from the teachers and that kind of was like the kitchen me ask to like. Hey, let's let's try harder at this. Let's try and figure out how to construct a sentence a little bit better and and your thoughts and I'm specimens. I'm still battling today, but I remember I try not to be sports editor wage. Junior High and the junior high paper is pretty much all song dedications and this and that and very little of substance but I got beat out for that position and took still enjoyed writing and then I did I did a couple of years on my high school paper at Westmont high and Campbell. And again, I did poorly in this like a British literature class. So I actually took off journalism twice you're only allowed to take it once but I knew that's what I was going to go into and you know, so and after that I went to West Valley College in Saratoga and I did far too many semesters on their page Church went to San Jose State did far too many semesters on their paper. I wasn't really like set on graduating. I was having so much fun on each step. Excuse me, boss. So on each stamp learning so much, you know when you were
