Rob Williams is killing it right now
"Second straight night. Rub williams clamoring for him to start. I didn't think that was going to happen. But with thompson out it made sense. They weren't going to go with the two big lineup. They started teague we even theorized maybe pritchett started teague again. Played a good game. Bob is gonna have to apologize for that and a little bit. Couple shocking gene goes. I mean look at this. I mean we're not talking about teague. I'm just kidding. Saw four points. He was feisty So rob william steals again insanely efficient minutes again and it's now it's literally everything i mean short of a jumper which doesn't have even though when he does take in his form looks perfectly fine when he's forced to in his free throws stroke looks actually pretty good but again the playmaking is unreal for this guy on offense and again ofo is something all of it. There's so many. He had so many almost assists tonight As well he was he just has great vision. He such an asset. And everyone's talking about you know I mean right now. There's a real conversation to be. There's two conversations be. We're going to start with one and ep. Is he the best player in the league question. No real but questioned one again. We we've always said at the beginning it's going to be a matchup specific sort of thing with these guys you depending on. Who's out there. I don't know that that's the case anymore. Tell me a situation where you don't feel like rob williams can be on the floor right now. Well anthony davis was one that bobby mentioned earlier. Well hey anthony but are we going to have those dogs burger bowl kierra. Opponents joel embiid. You'd rather not have him yet. Isolated on and you. Don't that happen. Yeah so like there's a few but you're right if you have him with the starters with the regulars on this team who can help them out on the defensive end when he needs it and of course empower on offense. It also goes back the other way. We talked about this last night. The secondary passing the diving to the rim. I would they keep talking about on the broadcast tonight. Stevens keep saying the vertical gravity up the posed. The guys back toward the rim. Because it's like the opposite loose all the new stat. Will they love it. Well the game. This is what. I thought about last year two with that team. That was so poll. Pappy if you had the sky diving off all those po ups like it just basket after basket for him easily. Because of how efficient is how high above the rim gets. It's just the one thing that still missing is that switching at the perimeter. Play getting out on shooters that can devastate you. The way game swing on threes. I still see why. Brad has that little bit of hesitancy with them their raving everything else is there and the term is role gravity. The kids love it okay. I'm old gravity. Yeah we're just bond you on the league leaders by tomo by tomorrow. But i mean basically. It's you're so you're so concerned the same way shooter will draw attention on the floor. He's going to draw it because everybody's freaking out when he's rolling because no one wants to get no one wants to get it thrown down. You have to account for it. You're not gonna you're running. That role with grant williams. There's no fear you run it with rob williamsburg like whoa and everybody's gotta worry and it. Does you can see the defense. Start to tense up. Every single time they run the high pick and roll and he starts to move. It does kind of draw a lot of attention. You saw few times tonight where it was kind of packed in because everyone's like oh they're going up and over me here in his ability to just go up and get it and just frigging ram it down you know. Nobody wants to be in that position so it does Open things up there and it does of it causes the defense to

All About Blacksmiths
"Our first expert is Philly. Barret goes enthused yourself toby. Toby my name is Billie Barrett. I am a blacksmith. Thank you. Let's meet our second expert. Linski Chris. He's introducing yourself to toby toby. I'm Chris Ski and I am an artisan and a welder. And I am a reenactor of a female blacksmith at Colonial Williamsburg tells about those hot and Molten. Sounds Lisa. Oh did you hear them? I did I think everybody else heard them to painting. Topsy time. That is correct. That is when we put our experts on the hot seat while they answer toby's questions. Lisa should we put on the hot? I totally buried because his initials are be just like the initials of my nickname nickname batboys. Okay Yeah I'm a math for sure. I don't WanNa mess with me fat boy okay. So Toby we're starting with billy. What is your first question for? Billy Billy would you rather get a heavier envel- or a hotter forge I would rather get a heavier and bill? Why is that? I just like heavy things. You're GONNA love your parting. Gift today. I don't think we have mice. Okay Chris and Billy what have you made the most of I'll answer I 'cause I work at colonial Williamsburg work at a historic forge. So we mostly do shoes. Oh that's cool. Do you do like high heels only for the fancy horses? How about you belly? I mostly make A little bit of everything with a specialization. In knives you make knives like knives that you cut food with everything from cutting food to serviceable tools. That you use every day very cool. Do you name any of them. Like Mac or sure to name a lot of them really. Yeah who and. What's the name of your favorite favorite favorite Tomahawk? I call stabby stabby. Okay Toby Billy What would be your second? Most favorite thing to do is make besides knives One of the things. I'd really like to do before I move on from this. Life is make a a really nice replica of an old style. Lock which is one of your skills as a Smith that you really want to try to. Master cool is homes for both of you. How old were you when you gone? Interest IN BLACK SNIFFING. Yes I'd like to know. I'd like to know how one decides that. They want to be a blacksmith. At what age does that happen? You just wake up one day and say hey I wanNA. A blacksmith. House is on fire. Let's make knives. How does that work? I studied had a minor in art in in university And so I started with glassblowing actually and then I started working at colonial Williamsburg and I saw some of the cool. Things that the blacksmiths were making in. That's the way I kind of got into it. How about you billy? Ironically when I was about twelve years old my parents took colonial Williamsburg. Is that true? Absolutely and It was a rainy day and I was begging my dad. Let me stay and watch the Blacksmith and the gentlemen still alive today and left me there for two hours and that clinched a deal for me. That was it as Peter. Ross it was Peter. Ross yes it was who is being arise. I guess he's a black one of the most well respected smithson. The World Master Blacksmith at the Anderson Forge words. Okay so Chris what what I see if I went to colonial Williamsburg. Mcdonald's like what would you see if you saw her there? Ya Okay and do you do any acting? Over's voice overs So we all portray real people that you know really lived in Eighteenth Century Colony of Williamsburg Virginia and there was a real forged called the Anderson Blacksmith Forge. And I play someone named Loretta. Frye who real person. And she was a female blacksmith. During that time we reenact what you would do or what I would she would do. I would do in the the daily routine of that person. In the eighteenth century I be dressed in eighteenth century clothing specifically what she would wear while she was working as a blacksmith. Clocking fear are going to be burned. Probably not a good idea. Kristiyo like my name is way. All your guy's name again. The Red Fra Loretta. Our blacksmith just like that old timers. Yeah pretty much. Do the voice better killing you. Just Hi I'M LORETTA. Fry and I. You know my a Blacksmith Year. They Anderson four bit of a southern accent. Yeah I hear that good okay. So for billy what are the steps to forging something that would depend on what you're making you it's It's all for your favorite thing knives for knife. It would be for me to determine what type of knife us what type of material I'm going to use. And then if I'm not sure about how I'M GONNA FORGE IT. I would forge it on clay. I deceive it's GonNa come out like I wanted to and then I just go from there. Say I'm just going to make a simple Chef's knife the first thing I'm GonNa do is forged my tip out dumber. Draw the blade out to the length that I want I'm GONNA taper down taper my blade down figure out how went to look and then just finish up so when you say you forge. Something does that mean. You put like a chunk of metal on the end of a big stick and put it over. Fire depends on the methods that you're used to work in many people do many different things. But yes you heat a piece of metal to well over a thousand degrees and then you use your hammered to shape it into the shape that you would like you ever makes more than there. Didn't they tasted terrible. I bet they had a lot of iron metal. This Chris how have used your angle personal best. Is You know. I'm not sure I've never. I've never waited but it's pretty heavy right. Do they come in many different weights and different sizes? Okay so is for both of you Is it true? That all blacksmiths are really bulky. Big Burly Guy. Sure okay. No I don't I don't think so at all. I do need a certain level of strength To use the tools. But there's a lot of intricacies to two blacksmith thing And sometimes a less bulky person could do that better I see. What do you think about that billy? I think it's Agreeable and sometimes you do have to have a delicate touch and it's one of the hardest things ever taken me to learn is that you don't always have to bash stuff small. Yeah that too but you only do that once. You've passed your fingers before. Oh No I don't WANNA know la La la La but does that sound like something. You'd like to try one day toby. What try doing some blacksmith out to? Your House is safe as long as it's safe. Yeah thing like one of you. I could like higher museum or something. You're looking for anyone. Whichever one of US want to be an Apprentice Liar.

"Met on the Williamsburg bridge because her newest novel the city became an important scene here you mean the opening of your forthcoming book you have set up on this bridge a giant tentacled bioluminescent inter dimensional creature tear it apart basically yeah well I mean no one can see it except for a few select individuals for reasons that will become clear in the book but you know it's just sort of is a giant tentacled it smashes out of no where shatters half the bridge causes massive destruction and damage all over the East River and no one really knows why except for a few people but what it means is that half this beautiful bridge gets torn apart and smashed into the water and I laughed while I did it we ducked into a bar on the Brooklyn side of the bridge to talk out of the way not just for us science fiction is transporting it's whimsical you can go in many different directions it can be apocalyptic to say that you're interested in science fiction opens up the question what kind of a kid interested you and in which of these directions you feel yourself being pulled as a reader I really didn't start to engage with science fiction until I kind of hit my teens and started to find different voices out there Octavia Butler Ursula Glynn stories that also range beyond the very traditional confines but I had seen for fantasy and science fiction at that point and I wanted to kind of know what else fantasy could do and then along comes the Clinton who was doing it before it was cool you mention that it took awhile to find some of these other authors and my understanding is that was an accidental because science fiction publishing in the news when you were a reader as a kid in the eighties and almost went out of its way to mask the identity of writers of color yeah Octavia Butler's don is an example both down to where yeah the protagonist is described in the book as a tall very dark skinned black woman with like a cloud of hair and I don't think Butler ever actually uses the word black but there's so many other indicators in there and then the addition put a white woman with black hair on the cover and there were no author photos of of Butler and there was no mention in her bio in that addition that she was black it really was like him and yet despite all the attempts to hide it I realize basically within the first few pages on my god I think she's black and that was just like earth shattering this cultural invisibility that the system of publishing engendered had a personal impact on you because when you were as I understand it growing up and thinking about considering possible careers for yourself in initially reading or writing be possible to make it work yeah yeah I mean I that was coming from a lot of different directions I don't wanna make it sound like it's coming strictly from within the industry you know I can remember having conversations with relatives other than my father about the fact that I I love to write and you know them then handing me a Toni Morrison book and saying do you write like this and I said no you know the the response was always will you need to write like this you need to write realist mainstream oriented fiction that will you know kind of focus on and life in America today is a black person or oppression or something like that and I was just like but I want to write about black people in space and a new for for a lot of times when I would say that the response would be well you can and why in the black community think that was the case I mean you you it is it is the nature of any group of people that you I understand you are capable of what you see role models operate on lots of levels and if you never see a black person in a particular space then you get the really clear message that you're not welcome in that space and so I got that message loud and clear when I was young and I was like you know what I'm gonna be a counselor I'm going to grad school for psychology you know the writing is a fun hobby but it's clear that the field is not one that that I can be successful in without you know a lot of trouble in drama and stress and I don't know that I want that in my life and then you know basically I had a point where I realized I was just not happy you know the writing bug had been in me since I was a child I'd always done it I'd read many books that had been published that I felt you know I can I can do I can do at least that good and you know I I had a point where I decided that it was worth the danger or were the the trouble in the stress and drama a minute sure has been some trouble in stress syndrome you know the rewards have been commensurate when Jennison talks about the trouble in the stress and the drama she's partly referring to a backlash from conservative science fiction writers and readers among them people associated with the all right they claim and this will sound familiar but the success of non white authors in women in science fiction has somehow been undeserving of form of identity politics it's been very very ugly and Jamison's new book the city we became addresses the legacy of racism in the genre in fact the book that's coming out in March continues to speak to those issues in some ways so one of the inspirations for the city we became was the controversy surrounding the world fantasy award until maybe two or three years ago the world fantasy award was the stylized bust of H. P. Lovecraft head and the controversy about this started when a black writer Nerio core for his friend of mine ninety one in the world fantasy award and they handed her love crafts head and she was like you can find her words online about it she did she most definitely pointed out that love craft is in an appropriate way to honor a black writer success let's just say so who is H. P. Lovecraft case in love craft is probably one of the most seminal writers in American modern fantasy you know he wrote at the turn of the century but a lot of the ways in which American fantasy no American horror engages with sub cultures cult religion and so forth were all influenced by love craft so you saw in a sort of sinister cults that had taken over towns and there's echoes of that in the Stepford wives for example you saw tentacle monsters that sort of didn't come at you roaring or screaming but sort of slithered into your life and integrated themselves into your community and then slowly destroyed you from within you see aspects of that in things like aliens hung you know in in the alien films so you know Lovecraft may not be very well known but you see elements of love craft in nearly all dark fantastical American media these days so he's that influence and he was exceptionally racist love craft has a poem and I cannot speak the title because I don't use the N. word but the title of the poem is on the creation of in words and his cat was named the N. word and he was like even by the standards of of the racist era in which he lived he was huge hello racist there is a way to separate whatever his creativity whatever skills were at evoking Harmer from his feet from his biases know his body issues were the basis of this horror the monsters came from his own fear of brown people of immigrants of Jewish people of whatever in several of his stories particularly when set in New York love crafts spends a lot of time sort of lavishes description on how terrifying it is to do something like walk through Chinatown and look at the use alien and frightening faces speaking in this terrible language and you feel his fears you read these passages you feel this discussed you feel his his unease at being surrounded by people who don't look like him there's a scene in the city we became in which of the minions of the woman in white the woman in white being the chief manifestation of these aliens that come to invade New York City yeah it is in effect the embodiment of the Lovecraftian tend to be less than the protagonists are taking on yeah this is the antagonist of the story the woman in white has many forms and many faces and one of the ways through which she works is through like minded people who she infects with her ideology literally in some ways some cases and so she is in fact a group of artists who call themselves the old her teeth and who set to one of the characters this painting called dangerous mental machines and aim Tang you didn't make up the title that painting that that's something that comes from love crap yeah dangers mental machines is what he called Chinese Americans because he believed that Asian people were equivalent to white people because they at least knew how to work and make money but he didn't think that they have souls he thought that they were machines that could get regretted calculation but there was no humanity in there no I remember this passage of the book he is vivid in my mind because you described the painting as both being incredibly seductive of it being beautiful in fact one of the the chief protagonists almost falls into a trance while looking at it it's good it's good art even though it has this undeniably horrific component to it yeah and it's it's you know I mean I I'm not good at sort of analyzing my own work but would love craft the balance in the the struggle is always between appreciating the fact that there's some good stuff here he does some incredible images powerful work but it's frightening it's frightening not always for the reasons that he meant it to be frightening it's frightening because it's a way to look into the mind of a true Beckett and realize just how alien they're thinking it was just how disturbing their ability to dehumanize their fellow human beings is this man literally saw the people of New York as monsters so that's what I decided to write against and so what do you think as a society or community of readers the response to love craft should be today to have to put in a box and and on down no no this year there's too much to learn from examining that tension between the power in the impact of the art in realizing where that art comes from and what the the impetus behind that art is the best way to engage with twisted or otherwise problematic art in my opinion is to first off it knowledge that that art has an impact hurts people and understand that engaging with it could perpetuate some of the harm that that art is is capable of doing but flag it worn it put it off to the side where people you know can engage with it at their leisure at their choice we're at a point where they're strong enough or capable of doing so but then engage with there's a line between respecting the work and honoring the person you can respect the craft you have to put that person on a pedestal you know artists are human beings and that means you need to examine them in all their assets you have to recognize that these are people and that the things that make them sometimes horrible people sometimes the things that make them good writers good artists and that's what you want to engage in Cajun missin.
