"I can say electro magnetic field that makes more sense to people maybe build your electromagnetic field through the repetition that causes the neural pathways to exist that you know how to hold this that when you haven't experienced like this you don't stand up in all on and you're tired you stand up and you still feel that way the next day and you still feel that way the day after and you feel strong and you can build on it but it cannot happen instantly it takes a lot of of practice inconsistency so First steps and i basic understandings of. Why might you want to commit to the time or whatever to certain practice depending on what your goal is. Is your goal to become peaceful. Is your goal to become healthier. Is your goal to become More strong happier or stand up for yourself confidence or lack of anxiety or more empathic and compassionate or and that's where you go work on whatever your thing might be. Yeah you could. You could develop some practices that would have to do with that swallowed a net third time of night. I noticed the bugs are starting to come out.

So she has this massive organic permaculture farm back there and she grows coffee and all kinds of things and she has to drive along a trail. Like that to get.

"Personally if you breathe in the back of your throat. Let's see if i can do it. Because i was already coughing from her ready now but You walk over there to get that thing on the motion sensor ya Let's hear it okay. We'll see how well i can do it. 'cause anyway. This approximately he regarded. It makes us noise. Yeah i need to go a little bit deeper. But it's hard to get there instantly but you stop just short of a snore people as a pretty good idea to blow your nose before any kind of practice like this just so you're not like you know so anyway. What that does is. It vibrates the upper palate of the mouth in the back of the throat. The back of the mouth. When the upper palate vibrates it bumps against the pineal gland which is right directly above it. The pineal gland is a seat of consciousness. So if you do that breath and vibrate the upper palate which then. The gland are stimulating. Your consciousness to kind of burst like a little fountain upward so hand on heart any sort of mantra tranquility bliss you know any any combination of words you might want. Say smile on your lips. The darth vader breath or the breath and shortly. You've got a little bit of activation like a bit of a fountain up this way. Which brings us to the.

"There was some beautiful story. He has a book called autobiography of a yogi. Wants to learn about to that at the bottom of the. It's an awesome book. I love it so it's just fascinating it's true and it's fascinating and explains why did this guy come from india to a country. That's the complete opposite of his country to teach people who'd never heard of anything but he was talking about and he had decided beforehand that he would teach all of his yoga teachings in christian language because he felt that the majority of the united states was were practising christians in the nineteen thirties. And i don't know he may have been right. I'm not what do you think it was mounted account. Put your mind in his mind but like was something like oh does this like desire for like none of them have yet so i can go in there. You know celtics not sell it to everybody but give it to everybody. It was very beautiful. I love this book. And i've read about three times but it was a long time ago the last time i don't recall. I think his teacher may be sent him saying You know the word from on high. The got from god and meditation. Something like that is that somebody needs to help these people and and it's time for someone to do it. And so you're the one off and so divert up in that tree sitting on that branch. I can finally see it So uganda came and he started. I think was a theological society. Anyway and he taught taught taught and that was in meditation. I came and he wore clothes from india and people who followed him. if they became advanced practitioners. In yoga and meditation they would wear unusual things and so people that oh they're weirdos they follow this guy who has long hair from another country that sort of thing and then in the nineteen sixties For some reason or another influx of yogis such as maharishi mahesh yogi and just a bunch of other came over I mean there's whole bunches of them that came over in the sixties and seventies and some of them. We're not strong enough to maintain their path and they succumbed to you know people. Wanting to give the money support them you know by them houses and cars and women throwing themselves at them and they and they had been you know in ashrams other life you know and their couldn't resist and so some of them got bad reputations because it was they just couldn't quite hold their center in this alternate buddhist the tree and he's like they gave him like temptation. Fm station and he was like no but like he went one inch away from saying yes right. Yes exactly is tough. And so some didn't some didn't so this is this is what meditation is. And no no. Hokey hokey image. Though they have long hair and the ropes. Sit around and you know. Stick your legs in the air. Do yoga things you know with an easy rider. Remember the other like what. Are you doing long hair. Beat the shit them because like what's your long hair hippies. Imagine a yogi hair white on white and wearing doodo things that are folded around. He's wearing a dress or something Anyway so this was the origin. However i'm not talking about adopting an indian lifestyle or any meditation is at its simplest is where you sit quietly in your comfy chair. You'd be a really normal and just close your eyes and listen to yourself. Breathe really simply. Just your breath goes bernie. Breath goes down and you just feel the breath go up and down and after a while hopefully your normal loops of thoughts and awareness will stop. And if they don't stop you can move beyond a simple breath up and down to using a mantra. You don't have to have a word in sanskrit that a indian guy whispered in ear in secret doesn't have to be anything like that. You can just say. I like the word peace or i like the phrase i am free or i like the phrase anything else every watch seinfeld surrounding hilarious so so you just keep saying that over and over again find that just sitting and listening to breath is impossible and you feel itchy ansi and want wiggle and you want to think about what to make for dinner or something. Then yeah you better call in a mantra. Because you're not getting very far. He just won't go away no matter how hard you work. This support your brain. Your empty fills up in high. Saw like wait a minute. I don't need to be doing this right now. So yeah the main thing is just pick something that is beneficial to you and is different from what you normally do. That will stop the loops. We're still like in a first grade conversation about this. We're still really foundational up. Okay please a little bit But meditation being a way to stop the loops in your mind. There are other forms of meditation. A lot of people particularly in this year at this time Have a lot of anxiety and stress issues and they have a lot of anger towards people whom they dearly loved. What was it ten months ago people. They dearly love now. Are there mortal enemies. Because i'm allow one wears a mask this the other ways a mask that way you know something like that completely i gotta hand it to whoever's out there trying to divide divide people against one another. They've done a good job. I'm just. I'm just i think there's actually a separate they weren't it's like the media and algorithms that go on like have incentive to get you upset because that'll make you log on more. There is an all kinds of stuff like that. It also has to do with buying more things just has to do with craziness that we don't actually care about. And that are not particularly good for us. But that's a different subject. So if that is somebody's issue they could do another form of meditation. Which is here's your heart over here. Okay on your left side of your chest if you just. There's an energy center in line with the spinal column that is on a level with your heart and so you just breathe into that porsche or this is a matter of the actual heart or this energy center. That's related to the heart. Breathe in and breathe out and you might just use the word. Love forgiveness compassion. Joy love forgiveness compassion joy. Dan always think title. And so that will cause the heart center that will cause love to be stimulated. There is another thing that can be done because to me if you get love flowing into you instead of your thoughts if you get the thoughts quiet and you get love flowing. Love is kind of the universal lubricant that allows all good things to start working and flowing when they didn't before so another way to get love. Flowing is to place your hand on your heart and put a smile on your lips when you put a smile on. Your lips stimulates the flow of endorphins. So there's a physical response. You don't have to be happy. You don't have to imagine you're happy. You just have to shape your this after your lists like a smile. You don't even have to place your hand on your heart. just breathe and maybe you're thinking something like love forgiveness compassion joy or whatever words you like breathing in and out that causes the flow of endorphins. Which make you feel fuzzy. Warm and kinda happy may take a few minutes depending on where you're coming from. You may be like a bunch of wild horses that escape their corral and it's going to take a few minutes to get them into the corral you know what i mean to hurt the wild horses into the corral where you're just like this another thing you can do is called the oud breath and yoga I call it the darth vader breath..

A Bird in the Hand

"Once there was a prince. He was the king and queen's child. They loved him with every ounce of there being. They tried not to vote on the prince too much as he got older and yet the time he had grown into a strong young man he also grown accustomed to getting every single thing. He asked for a fancy. Silk shirt. Taylor get over here and emerald encrusted ring jeweler. I have a job for you. A private seven course meal cokes. Listen up all you had to do was snap his fingers and voila whatever he wanted would appear and if anyone tried encouraging the prince to be kinder or more patient or more appreciative of what he already had. Don't try telling me how to live my life. Advice is for the birds. One morning the prince went wondering through the royal gardens as he looked around at the perfectly pruned trees bushes and flowers. The many fountains flowing with crystal clear water. He thought to himself. You know what this garden needs. Fruit trees just four me. Peach pear plums bananas. Everything all my favorites. That way. I can eat as much fruit as i walk everywhere. The prince was about to some the royal gardener to order her to plant a dozen more fruit trees when suddenly he heard singing. The prince turned his head. This way into that. that's funny. I hear somebody singing bird. I don't see anyone anywhere. I've got to find out. We are such beautiful. Music is coming from. The prince began dashing around the garden glancing high and low at last beside one of the flowing fountains. He came to a willow tree. It's droopy twisty branches. Were swaying in the breeze and perched on one of those branches was a little brown bird. Hello prince the prince did a double take. He'd never seen a bird who could speak before Did you really just talked to me. Did and before that you were singing i was the prince felt his heart skip a beat after all remember. He was used to getting everything he wanted and here. He was confronted by something super desirable. A bird that sang and talked without wasting a second. The prince reached out grabbed the bird. Oh and cupped it in his hand. Wow i already have two dogs. Four cats six horses eight rabbits. But you're going to be the coolest pet ever. You can talk to me when i'm bored and sing to me when i can't sleep. I'll have the royal blacksmith making a big cage and keep you right in my room. The bird shook her head come now prince. You're always getting new things new clothing new jewelry new toys and once. They're no longer new. You move onto something else. no. I don't the bird gave the prince knowing. Look while you're bound grow. Tired of me are singing. Talking bird seems pretty special right now. Give it a few days. I'll be old news. I tell you what though if you let me go. I'll give you something. You'll never grow tired of three things actually. The prince's is lit up three things like three wishes again. The bird shook her head. No prince wishes are no good without wisdom. That's why if you let me go. i'll give you three pieces of wisdom. The prince arched his eyebrows. Wisdom no offense but what kind of wisdom could possibly come from my bird brain bird. Pray you see what i did. They're very funny prints. But if you set me free. I give you my word. You can use this wisdom forever. The prince thought for a moment forever. All right. then give me your three pieces of wisdom bird. And i'll let you go free. The bird quivered with delight. You promise i promise. The bird straightened herself up. As best she could took a deep breath and looked prince right in the eye. Okay prince listen up and listen good because this little bird brehm is about to change your

Creating Antimatter: Matter's "Evil Twin"

"Jeff. i have a lot of questions about antimatter. But can you just start with regular mater. What is that. Yeah so a refresher for who don't remember regular matters abroad category for everything. So you're matter i'm matter. The studios matter the microphones. Yeah i get it matter and we matter. It's a nice thought. Yeah and as matter were all made of atoms. So you're bunch of adamson the shape of an emily corn. And i'm tabatha the shape of a jeff brumfield now for antimatter. I'm actually going to let another jeffrey. Who knows a lot more. Physics denied to answer this one. His name is jeffrey hengst. And he's a researcher at our house university in denmark. And to i. I think of it as kind of an evil twin of the stuff that makes up our everyday world intriguing. Go on it is it is. It's just this kind of opposite matter. It's like this muir to everything that's around us so antimatter. It's here right now yet. I mean it's a little more complicated than that but anti matters real stuff and it exists in our universe and actually before anyone ever even detected it. They predicted it because math. The equations of physics demanded in fact it was discovered that way by coming up with an equation that predicted his existence. Nobody was really looking for it. And i am not going to attempt to describe the fundamental equations of physics on this podcast. Because i don't really understand them But hank says the closest analogy. He's got for us mortals to think about. Is this math problem. What's the square root of four two very but there's a second solution negative to allocate right because negative negative to is four so the way you just went straight to two. That's exactly kind of what happened in physics like there were these equations and there was a positive set of solutions for particles and negative said and everyone was like the negative set. What does that even mean. That's nonsense but it turned out there. Worthies negative particles. They did exist in. They're called antimatter. Oh okay so there's this theoretical idea of antimatter kicking around for awhile. Which kind of explains what it is. But what is it exactly. Here's the thing it really is like opposite matter. Protons remember protons. Yeah their positively charged subatomic particles. They are anti. Protons are negatively charged electrons their negatively charged and their anti particles are positively charged. This is kind of amazing. It is kind of amazing. And here's the best part. It actually lives up to the sci-fi analogy so just go with your sifi brain and i get it emily. You're more of like colin firth. Pride and prejudice bbc. You know no shame in it. There isn't there isn't i've seen it probably more times than you have in my life. But what do you think happens when matter and antimatter Get together when they actually meet okay. If anti matters the evil twin the fight they do will. They do like in a jane austen novel. They do. Well you're not too far off. I'm going to let the actual experts explain it to you. And i have a tendency to cancel each other out a minute. Where's this under. Certain conditions when to identify articles of matter. Antimatter meet these. Are your experts. Jeff captain kirk and is that leonard nimoy as relationship. Yes total complete absolute annihilation. Spock it is. That's right and you're right. That's star trek season. One episode twenty-seven original track the best track. But here's the thing eveline. It's actually a hundred percent accurate or pretty close so the universe won't end if antimatter and matter meat. But the two particles do disappear in a flash of light. The anti-matter can't exist in the presence of matter. The science fiction stuff comes in these things really do annihilate each other if you get together okay. So i've covered a lot of physics over the years and this is pretty much the only case where the sci-fi and the reality match although i will say annihilation is actually a lot less sexy in real life it's really Just annoying to have to deal with something that you have to make that the universe is trying to destroy and every every every turning point be an antimatter physicist it it is. I mean he's literally been doing this since the ninety s and like he does get a little frustrated. All right you said earlier that antimatter. It's here in this universe but this universe is full of matter and i don't see any antimatter lurking around. So where is it if it's existing theory but it's hard to find in reality. I don't get this you know who else doesn't get it. Every physicist on earth this is one of the fundamental questions the equation say there should be as much antimatter matter but in practice. Antimatter is actually super hard. To find and hank says nobody knows why there aren't any good ideas about this. I mean physicists. Do see little bits of antimatter here. and there. In fact anti electrons for i discovered in cosmic rays coming from deep space way back in the nineteen thirties. And actually i've got another natural source of antimatter right here in the studio emily in this room. Yes ready yes this banana. What are you talking about this real episode. This is an episode about nothing and tomfoolery. Hold the banana to make sure it's real. I'll explain yes okay so obviously. The banana is not anti matter. But here's the thing about bananas. Bananas are full of potassium. Which is really good for you. But there's also a radioactive isotope potassium into banana called potassium forty. This is a naturally occurring. isotope So some porsche. The potassium in the banana is potassium. Forty now here's the thing. Potassium forty when it decays releases an electron but very very very very rarely it releases an anti electron. So if we just hold this banana and wait for for. How long are we waiting. Okay we'd have to seventy five minutes. We're at ten minute podcast. Geoff just sit here for seventy five minute. What i'm hearing is seven part series on antimatter. Emily kwan and a meditation silence. That's right no so. On average this entire banana will spit out. One anti-electron every seventy five minutes. I think this really makes the point. Well right like antimatter exists. It's not some parallel universe but one tiny anti trump for trillions of banana adams is like even. That's a pretty rare thing to have. Happened and jeffrey wants a lot more than that. That's why he's at this giant particle accelerator cernan switzerland. Okay so tell me what. He's up to their well. Hanks wants lots of anti electrons. And in this is key anti protons. Hey so it turns out the anti electrons are kind of easy. You can find other radioactive sources Besides bananas that can make a lot more of them and then the elevator makes anti protons. And here's the thing so you have to very carefully hang us to bring the anti protons in the anti electrons together we call it s- merge it's a smooz merge merge but even after that merge they still end up with a lot of antimatter just disappearing. Thirty million anti protons. That's converted two hundred thousand or so trapped. Anti protons of those will get twenty or thirty that actually make anti hyphen that we can use well. Willow anti-hydrogen is that what i just heard. Jeff what is that. Anti-hydrogen is just one anti electron orbiting one anti protons and it's the antimatter. Equivalent of the lightest element on earth. So that's regular hydrogen willing to go to all this trouble just to get a few atoms of anti-hydrogen but why go through all the trouble you know of making andy hydrogen okay. So here's the thing. He's hoping to get some clues from anti-hydrogen about matter antimatter and the thinking goes like this. Hydrogen is the lightest element in the universe and hydrogen is probably the thing we know best. We've been studying it forever. We really understand it. So by looking very very carefully at anti-hydrogen. He's hoping that they can learn more about what's going on with antimatter. And that's basically what he's doing he's using lasers all kinds of stuff to probe this anti-hydrogen to see how it behaves. Well has shed any light on where the rest of the antimatter is. Not yet not yet. And so far. Anti-hydrogen is behaving exactly as predicted by all those fundamental physics equations. And so far with the places that we've looked and to the precision with which we've looked they're the same and that's kind of a problem because they also say there should be much matters antimatter unless they can find some sort of deviation it may not be possible to figure out you know where the antimatter went. So we don't have any clues but that's okay because he's just

"So sarah. Why don't you give a quick introduction for What you're doing We can talk about your rebranding to if you want. But maybe that's for another day. But i'll just tell people about what you do and and how you came to be here today. Yes i'm the chief content officer at matchbox i. Oh and we are the brands behind a twenty voice. Applications on amazon alexa. Google assistant in samsung bixby and this past year. We've branched out into podcast website and mobile app as well got it perfect. Okay brielle hide. I am real. I am box head of product so my entire career has been kind of at the intersection of design language technology and we have an interactive canvas with drag oxes for anyone to create Choctaw waste at or an yards. Look so he's reading here today. But i'm glad to have you do your second appearance. And the voice podcast. Thank you rod and what we are podcast movement. A couple years ago to be us. Tell us about you. Yeah i hate to be as dangle. I'm the ceo of willow tree. We are a digital strategy design and development company helping clients like fox. Cbs hbo Synchrony bank schwab at jones etc with their apps in their websites. We believe voices the next big thing in the next two three years we think all those websites and apps are going to be voice powered. I've been working in digital and specifically around voice for a long time. I i got exposed to voice when i was at. Aol in the late nineties. I worked on the tell me acquisition which was one of the early really lay in ninety eight ninety nine. Yeah i remember. I remember driving home from from dulles to dc in testing out playing. You could play a black you could call in and play blackjack on a voice at the time right. Yeah yeah we've had a lot of tell the alums On the voice about podcasts. Over the last couple of years. So that's great. I didn't know you had that experience all right. So let's talk about the urine review. That's what we want to talk about. Twenty twenty twenty what happened. What didn't happen I think both things are probably true. It's been a strange year But it's also been dynamic urine voice. Here we'll start with you. Because i think there might be an interesting angle here. I assume the biggest story and voice this year is co vid because it's the biggest story at everything maybe not the big story invoice. We'll see But we should talk about covid and let's let's talk about the global pandemic. Did it change anything for you. What you saw in the industry at the time that we were sort of just entering into this and has that persisted is it still is. Is it the same difference as it anew. Difference is back to normal. What do you think yes or. The world changed trait in march. I mean we're all in a different place than we were thinking about. Voice applications thinking about hard portfolio in specific specifically at matchbox. So we saw right away when everyone. The entire world went into lockdown that the usage of voice applications shifted so during the week monday through friday pre covid. We had like peaks monday through friday. Seven am seven pm. Those were like the certain applications the the main peaks of usage. And then over the weekend it would be kind of spread out throughout the day But once everyone went into lockdown we started seeing that weakened usage throughout the entire week and it was slightly increased usage. stickiness increased as well So that was really interesting. There wasn't a massive spike. Everyone was talking about. Oh everyone's going to be at home and there's gonna be no smart speaker. Usage is going to dramatically spike. We didn't necessarily a huge spike. But we did see overall an increase in usage that persisted. Is it been the similar. Did we go back to normal higher different. Yeah it's persisted since since march and it'll be interesting. You want everyone at home and i know. Excuse me i know is gonna have to take a drink here in a second. Sorry sorry i know. As as vaccine becomes more available race and people star we all start coming out of lockdowns and people start returning to their their free cove lives. I think will see another shift. And as people start their commutes again we had a lot of discussions right before kobe. Hit with in-car experiences like talking with different manufacturers and that kind of thing in-car experiences and that's all been on hold and i expect once commute. Start up. I think we're going to see a really interesting spike. In use cases they're

How the Wolves Change the Forest

"Literally get down on our hands and knees and starts slowly sifting through the leaf litter looking for bissett hair or a little chunk of bill. Tom gabel is tracking predator. In fact he's tracking pack of them. Oh it's very much like a crime scene investigation since twenty fifteen the university of minnesota conservation. Biologists has used gps collars to track thirty wolves inside voyageurs national park. Those callers lead gable and his team to kill sites and they're amid the leaf litter were bloodied bits of fern bone clues about how wolves the ecosystems they live and hunt and kill in. The long-term study is in a way. A quest to broaden a science story that goes back twenty five years for wildlife ecologists the story of the reintroduction of wolves to the greater yellowstone ecosystem on january twelfth. Nineteen ninety-five has become canonical. The story goes something like this. As the elk grew to fear the wolves they changed where and how they foraged that gave willows cottonwoods and aspens a better chance to grow near streams it also meant more riverside berries for foraging grizzly bears and lead to alterations in the flow of those streams. Sending water in new directions. Wolves out compete coyotes for access to pray so coyote populations plummeted which led to a rise in fox rabbit and ground nesting bird numbers and so on ecologists called this row of biological domino's a trophic cascade regard with your inclination. I think it's hard not to be like. Wow this is amazing right if that is true. That's really incredible. New findings cast some doubt on the idea that wolves primarily regulate the greater yellowstone ecosystem through fear and intimidation and regardless of the situation. They're very little. Research has been conducted on this question. In ecosystems that don't resemble the mountains and grasslands of yellowstone which brings us back to the boreal forests of northern minnesota. The ground that tom gabel and his team have been crawling over the last few years during the winter. Wolves work together to kill large prey. Like dear but gable found than in warmer ice free months wolves focus on smaller prey like newborn dear funds and especially beavers and. That's where things get really interesting for the ecosystem. Wolves by trading on dispersing beavers alter where wetlands are created. If a young beaver gets killed after leaving home it will never have a chance to build a new dam even if it had started construction before becoming a wolf lunch. The damn will remain unfinished. End fall into disrepair beavers are ecosystem engineers so when a wolf kills one it can have a big impact because they prevent beavers from converting a forest into a wetland and in that regard wolves are unconnected to all of the ecological processes that are associated with wetlands and beaver ponds. Ecologists have long assumed that predators can influence their ecosystems in two main ways one is through fear and intimidation like in the yellowstone story. The second is through direct. Killing the voyagers will offer up a third possibility. The park and the forest surrounding it have more than seven thousand beaver. Ponds gable estimates that wolves have a direct impact each year on around eighty eight of them. That's a mere one and a quarter percent affected so it's hard to argue that wolves responsible for reshaping the ecosystem in the broadest sense. But it's equally hard to deny that. They helped to maintain a diversity of habitats landscape.

Olivia Jade addresses college admissions scandal that landed parents in prison

"And this whole college admission scandal and what she had to say. Yes, Bob. This is quite the headline here. I did not expect for Olivia Jade, the daughter of Massimo JIA, newly and actress Lori Laughlin to break her silence on the entire college admissions scandal. This is really the first time that we have heard from any member of that family since the scandal unfolded. Because you know they couldn't really talk about it because of legalities and and things like that. But now she has taken to Jada Pinkett Smith Red Table talk, which is her Facebook watch theories, and she opened up about the entire experience and recognizing her privilege and what she has learned from it. Of course, her parents both pled guilty in May 21 count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and they are Both currently serving their prison sentences on Her recognizing her privilege. She still doesn't understand it. But the whole point of her going on this red table talk was just to apologize, Acknowledge that she knows what she and her family did was wrong, and she's asking for a second chance. Now, here's a little bit of what she said on that show with her mom. Uh, Jada Pinkett Smith host the show with her mom and her daughter, Willow and the Libya Jade. Felt it was time to speak and definitely ready to address some things. There is no justifying or excusing what happened because what happened was wrong. But I think what's so important to me is like toe learn from the mistake not to now be shamed and punished and never given a second chance. Like I'm not trying to victimize myself. I don't want pity. I don't deserve pity. I never got to say I'm really sorry that this happened. At least it wasn't one of those non apology. Apologies where somebody says if I offended anyone, I mean, it sounded like she really did take responsibility. And she understands the severity of what they did especially, you know, not now that her parents are, you know, serving prison sentence. I feel like it's really Able to sink in for her. And so she she took the initiative to publicly apologize. Okay, Here

All That Is Wicked

"This is dryden village in upstate. New york near ithaca. The first settler arrived here in seventeen ninety seven and it was eventually named after english poet. John dryden the small country village. They founded was quirky. Six mile creek was actually twenty miles long but the people who lived there were proud of their heritage. After the revolutionary war. The town became part of the military tract program. It was a government scheme that gifted each new york soldier hundreds of acres of land a type of payment for participating in the war the war of eighteen twelve drafted even more soldiers so more veterans came and some of its most notable early villagers were the scots. They were respected family. That was really well known for their contributions to the village but they were also known for the string of horrific murders in their family. Red light you can imagine this now lost snow on bravo. I'm a journalism professor at the university of texas and austin and now i've never really driven in the snow. It took me about an hour just to drive thirteen miles. From ithaca craig scott and i drive the back roads of dryden winding pass churches and fields to brookefield farm. This has been in his family for almost two hundred years. Another scutt kathy. Chadwick lives here with her son and her dog. Hannah ohana i wander around for awhile outside. Craig is a retired local businessman and politician who has lived off of scutt road for decades. The local cemeteries are filled with his ancestors. The scutt name rings royalty in dryden at least to me. He and cathy have hundreds of relatives in the county but they've never actually met most of them. What is it like to come from such a large family. I have two cousins vast family. We always run into people that we didn't know we were were part of a tree somewhere. I at least. I find that i went to the picnic a couple of years ago. And oh my word. Where did all this cuts come from. So it was a little surprising to me that the family was so extensive. The scots arrived in america. In the early sixteen hundreds from amsterdam they owned lumber mills clothing mills and thousands of acres of farmland. They felt blessed to be a part of such a close community. Gerald smith is a historian and nearby broome county and an expert on small town life in the eighteen hundreds. Everybody knows everybody else. Everybody would go over and help the neighboring farmer or two or three farms down. If there was a problem the barn burned down. There's a barn. Raising the family's patriarch in eighteen. Forty two was john scott. He was a fifty five year old decorated veteran in the war of eighteen twelve. John own this house which looks really small from the outside. But it's two stories with four bedrooms and a large basement a pretty impressive eighteen forties house that has stayed in the scott family for generations. A well with original slate stone sits just feet from the house. A murder of crows lives in a massive willow tree nearby. I can remember as a child coming out here to visit. It's not a bad thing to hang on a little bit to the past john. Scott was cathy chadwick's great great. Great grandfather he became a well known schoolteacher in dryden a leader in the village he was highly intellectual and very hard working and a little strict told me about the family. Valley's well perseverance stubborn. It's right up there on top of the list. My grandfather used to say man's only as good as his word could give somebody your word. Make sure you keep it. He always was stressing that yeah and that was something that i did as well and commitment to each other. Henry scott was john and hannah's second eldest child henry was trusting. His mother and father had raised their five girls and seven boys to always welcome the wandering men who stumbled onto their farm.

Childhood Heroines

"And welcome to breaking the glass slipper. I'm Charlotte bombed. I'm Lucy handsome and I'm Megan Lee. We are all of us shaped by our childhood the books and characters. We grew up with are the ones that stay with us throughout our lives and also the ones which helped us to shape ideas about ourselves and the society. We live in Palm spend a lot of time on breaking the glass slipper championing modern authors and ground-breaking characters. So we thought it was about time to devote an episode to discussing the heroines good and bad that we grew up with them. So ladies, what is the earliest heroin that you can remember having a strong attachment to it can be from a film from a book from TV anything? Who is the first time that you really remember going? That's the girl for me. Yeah, so Millions totally going to say princess Slayer, which I'm not going to say because I'm clearly crap and don't watch Star Wars, but I was thinking about this today and maybe that was because I was in waterstones and so I was surrounded by books, but I had some Enid blyton's and I read the naughtiest girl in school and I have to say that she was one of my first like heroic female characters because I just loved her. I love the fact that she was a Red Bull from the start and yeah, she had no friends and it was her fault. She had no friends. But you know, I I was with her all the way. I was like, yeah, you kicked that proof egg, but you know, I went on the journey with her and she grows as a character mean in a flight in like kudos to her. She does some real character development and Elizabeth the heroine of the of the naughtiest girl she she kind of reforms herself and grows up. Be a prefect and you know, yeah, it's a bit of a goody-two-shoes things, but she never really loses that kind of rebellious spark. She always does things her own way and and that's what really appealed to me off. Okay. I'm going to say that I'm not that predictable because I wasn't going to say princess layer. The reason was because we were trying to think of the song list heroin that I really remember having a strong attachment to and this is probably going to come out way of left field but Ducky from The Land Before Time. Do you know what I never watched that? I knew it that maybe I saw like one episode of it. So I'm all ears which one was ducky ducky song from. Well, I'm talking about the film. I've not actually seen any of the other films all the series. So, oh I knew it was a series that I just never saw it, but this is the one with the Dinosaurs in yes. Yes, so Ducky song The cute little one that's always like yep. Yep. Yep. Oh, yeah. Yeah, that's right. And I I love ducky and I loved Spike and I loved their friendship and oh, yeah ducky. Yeah. I just really yucky when I was little and I still do and yeah, although home today. I actually looked it up because it had been such a long time and I could remember her voice and I could remember that you know what the character looked like and for some reason the name had gone out of my head which I felt terrible about but also I discovered something really quite horrible the the little girl who voiced ducky she died at the age of ten because her father had killed shot her mother and her and then killed himself and was really quite depressing. And so that's what I am that still line. I went down this afternoon when I was Doing my research for today's episode, which is great. Yeah, that's crazy. She was ten o horrible pool kids. Yeah, and then she cuz she was also took in All Dogs Go to Heaven, but that was really helped. Mostly. Yeah. I remember that film cried so much of that film. Yeah, me too. Anyway, sorry, I had a high and then a real low, but anyway ducky was probably yeah, the the very earliest one and if God, I think if anyone else has really early it would be Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden. I loved Mary C. I wasn't really Blown Away by them regarding they must have met it was just kind of a am effing for me. Yeah same here. Yeah didn't get it still don't I love The Secret Garden. So one of my dreams to come across the hidden garden Wilderness know it's nothing Tom's. My garden is so much better than that. Sounds good. I love that. I can I had never even thought of that before meeting you too. So, yeah. Sorry. Maybe it didn't make it to Australia. I don't know. So what about you Charlotte? Well, I'm going to show my age here. I think the first heroin that I ever remember really cutting on too and I must have been very very young was Juliet in dog Canyon. If either of you old enough to remember that, of course Canyon and the musket hands and I don't know why cuz she was so cute and like had that lovely pink dress that never got Mucky or maybe it's always just just perfect and are she I really when I was growing up, I really wanted to be Juliet from dog Canyon but when it comes to books I grew up with my parents reading the books and as leasing I would talk you about previously before we joined the discussion. It was in an era when there wasn't like young fancy children's books that you could read to kids. So you kind of got rid of adult books wage and I was read The Hobbit Wind in the Willows was red which courses very very lacking in women or female characters

"That's fair that's fair Yes on my quarantine has been nothing but movies and TV and video games and reading and doing research. Aw the day before we record. Oh no I I no God no i. I did some before but a handful of it was done literally today. But that's that's my business not yours. Yes so we are doing the willow the WISP. St- Today I don't know of many people really know the the lore behind this one but when I eat into like pop culture people will be like. Oh yeah totally know about this shit. Will the wisps willow WISP? I don't know I have no idea not that. I know of no Willow whispers who lost my virginity to back in Two thousand three back in two thousand three I was in a forest and let's just say use lube when you try anal because it hurt a lot. Yeah come on like if you're GONNA CATHETER AT least Loubet up. Just spit on it. Just a little bit please. So on a slightly darker note. I'm going to going to read a couple of stories And you guys with some some spooky so The idea behind will will will apostrophe whisk. But I'M GONNA say we'll of the WISP because I don't have a cool accent. I don't have a cool accent and so I'm not allowed to say. Willow WISP Bay I'll say will of the WISP or whatever so. A traveling home at dusk sees a Bright Light. Traveling along ahead of him looking closer he sees it. The light is a lantern held by a dusky little figure which he follows for several miles all of a sudden he feels himself standing on the edge of a vast chasm with roaring torrent of water rushing below him at that precise moment the lantern carrier leaps across the gap lifts the light high over. Its head lets out a malicious laugh and blows out the light leaving the poor peasant a long way from home standing in pitch darkness at the edge of a precipice so generally these will will of the West Sir called Lantern. Jack's Spunky ignace fatuous fool fool as fire and Hanky punks There is you know it baby That will in my sweet non unemployment hair and my not shirt my no-shirt oh we didn't even say that. And so you boy dis hitting you with a no-shirt nipples out today it's Because we're we're doing a remote recording were in. I'm in the closet studio from a season one episode. Do and it's. It's a little toasty. Well let's just because I haven't showered in three days because I don't even do video conference calls. I just I just dial in. Yeah Fuck Yeah. So like I was saying Lantern Jack Fools fire a bunch of different weird shit but across the board Most cultures have a connection with will of the wisps. Now generally people think like. Oh that's a that's a British bullshit like that. That stuff just goes on over in Like the UK and they have really rich histories and everything. So none of that happened stateside in America but you would actually be surprised there like it. It's really everywhere. Which is what intrigues me. Most about this was that it's not just like it's not just based in the UK though a lot of my stuff is going to be from Europe because they have the best stories there are. There are these cases in Japan China. Russia South America In North America even Australia's. So if you don't know what will the West Sir Lantern? Jack are generally. They're known as lights that are manifesting themselves to mislead followers to like an impending doom or unfortunate situations. You put that Pop Tart Away A. J. So they'll generally lead people away or try to get them lost Or even lead them to their death. I A lot of in some cases I people refer to will of the wisp as a saying that symbolizes hope or a goal that leads one on. But it's impossible to reach much like us having a successful podcast a this which. I will never be famous so don't ask for autographs. Yeah Yeah. We need a an advance payment for those things so like. I said a lot of a lot of this is it has a dark aspect to it. Because you're out. At night you see these little little prancing dancing lights in the distance. You're like what the fuck is at your intrigued usually. That'S A bad sign. If you're seeing things when you're out at night nine times out of ten it's not gonNA help you. It's not Jesus. He's not there for you. I promise however there is a belief that not all wisps or lights or orbs are bad There are some cultures and beliefs. Out there that Sometimes user just trapped souls that are looking to be baptized There's a story that comes out of Wales. I believe that there was a guy that was baptizing his son. In just a little pool out like out in the forest outside their home and wisps started lining up and he started baptizing whisks just compel you so as as anti Christian and Anti God is. I am a lot of this a lot of the lower behind. All of this has to do with souls and trapped souls and demons and we'll talk about it later but along the lines of like fairies Now Like I said they are usually trapped. Souls they're looking to be baptized or in some cases in this was actually referred to in Bram Stoker's Dracula that these wisps will lead to treasure or Leprechaun gold in Ireland is one of the beliefs now. These positive ideas of them like. Oh yeah these these little lights will lead you home. They'll help you when you're out and you're drunk and you need to get a you need to find your way home. I feel like a lot of that is. That's why people will follow them. And that's why the impending doom and the negative aspect comes in is because people are like. Oh yeah they're just harmless delights. My friend found treasure following one of these. And it's like no these things are seriously going to try to fuck you over. It's just that's so I feel like that's a lot of the reason why you get these stories of people that are like Oh my God like a wisp of a little light of follow it. Maybe it'll help me out because there are positive stories and because if everything you hear about a WISP is negative you're not gonNA follow it like it's like saying Oh. I saw a demon and he said Hey. Come into my woods and you're like oh I've heard nothing but bad things about demons all follow him like fuck no whether poku youtube that no nobody would do that. Sneaky paranormal schemes part. Three cheers to that. So it's it's kind of interesting getting to read through some of these odd accounts that are just an. I shouldn't say that their accounts. Some of them are just folklore. Weird stories to keep kids from sneaking out of their house at night Little things to keep people from sneaking off their property. You're going into different. Areas are staying out too late really It's it's just like any law like any en folk tale that normally. It's it's made just to scare little kids to follow. What the hell their parents are telling them to do. which honestly I feel like. That's an effective way to get through to. Kids is to come up with fairy tales. Exactly you can't if you can't teach Spook them yeah. It was interesting my my. Pe Teacher my physical education teacher in middle school at the same thing but in instead of spook them it was crossed out and said molest. I don't know why it was a weird thing. Yeah but it was painted on. It was just weird. Just one of those funny things. Oh Oh Mr Jackson goof. For some reason there were all these cameras in there too. I have no idea why no but after he hit us on the back of the head a few times you would see like you'd see stars I don't know if that counts right Yeah so back back to what we were originally talking about. Let's let's skip past my my traumatic backstory. So like I said not. All of these things are necessarily bad in a way of some of them do have good intentions. But that's why people would follow him so in. Germany they obviously have a story about someone. That's drunk there. It's just it's bound to happen. Yeah Yeah it just applies. It's like. Hey here's a story about a drunk guy and kids are like. Oh you must be talking about dad. But he wouldn't beat his wife not in Germany. They're nice out there. They're not Americans are not shitheads when they drink yeah. It's not a big deal like all they did was try to exterminate an entire religion. Whatever who cares not a big deal? Yeah it's whatever that's it happened. We are all over it. Everybody is over it. Nobody is set it anymore so in Germany. Don't forget never forget. It's remember so this German guy. Obviously drunk he is leaving the tavern. I like to think that it's a tavern at the time. It's not a bar leaves the tavern and he starts heading home and on his way home. It's a very forested area. And he sees a little light and originally he thinks like that must be my house so he gets closer to it closer and he realizes it. It's a WISP so the whis speaks to him because in some cases they will speak. They'll manifest themselves as either like children that are holding Like torches or like in the first story people walking with lanterns or they'll just be a little glowing white and so in this case it was like a light so the little light comes up to him and the guy says look. I'll pay you to silver if you show me the way home and the wishes. Yeah by all means. Follow me so this guy starts following him. He falls him for way longer than he thinks he's like. I don't know like maybe I'm not getting close to home. And then all of a sudden he walks up and his front door is right there and he pulls out one copper need tosses it to the whispers yet. Take this you dumb son of a bitch. I'm home now. And all of a sudden the wisp drops like the door disappears and the man realizes that he's just out in the middle of nowhere that yeah you've been had although you're an asshole and you tried to underpay the the hard working citizens of the forest you rich piece shit so people would get lost this way. And that's I'd assume that this is people's justifications for why someone would go missing back back in like seventeen hundreds like a long time ago before we really had. Gps Yeah Yeah. And like I said at the start there are. I feel like across all cultures and societies These these ideas and concepts of folklore. They're generally all kind of the same They'll have like similar Core Stories Really just the means that it's displayed or the means that it's like put through to everybody is changes like that. That's the biggest thing that really switches things up is just like somebody in China is going to have a different perspective on like what tells you not to go out at night as opposed to someone in the UK Though the stories are similar like Oh a guy goes out at night. He follows this thing he gets lost. He runs into this like this demon or he runs into something that he thinks is good but it turns out to be bad. So don't go out at night more. Specific like yeah. I could see because of what we will get into. I don't want to spoil it or whatever of because of what we will get into because you and I've talked about this before there is it's an interesting connection There are a lot of similarities. When I proposed this. This show idea you were like. Oh my God what about this? Oh Shit Yeah I guess they are the same thing And from what I read through a lot of people were saying that they are kind of in some cases long lines the same. But that's a discussion. That will have a little bit later in this episode. So St do so with The Americas even In Texas they have like a light that will manifest itself. And I believe it's like South West Texas that people will talk about But in Mississippi they actually had one that in the sixties. Like pretty much the forties through the seventies it was really popular and people would drive out there or not. Mississippi M- Missouri which coincidentally it is close to Joplin Missouri Which if you don't know yet if you don't know the the significance Joplin Missouri. Then go back and watch our Gwendolyn creek more episode The little what is it. The poor little rich girl of Joplin Missouri and incest. I'll even talked about that. I got way too drunk for that episode. I it. It's it's funny because people were really superstitious about this. They were like. Oh my God like it's a Ufo but it would only show up every so often and so- droves people would come out and they'd park in this one place it was. It was on an interstate. They would park on it and people would just sit out on their cars or they'd sit in and listen to the.

You've been doing anything fun since you don't actually work as your piece of Shit Jess on my quarantine has been nothing but movies on TV and video games and reading and doing your research on the day before we record you had like three weeks. Last time we record we recorded three episodes. Oh no you're right before God no I. I did some before but a handful of it was done literally today but I did most of mine today. That's my business not yours. Yes so we are doing the Willer. The wisps today I don't know if many people really know the the lore behind this one but when I get into like pop culture people will be like. Oh Yeah I totally know about this shit. Wasn't that like a movie from the early. Two thousands that I never saw will the wisps willow willow wisp the whis low whisper. I have no idea lowest. No it's not SARS making a down now isn't there a movie called willow or something no willow whispers who I lost my virginity to back in two thousand. Yom Back in two thousand and three I was in a forest and let's just say use lube when you try anal because it hurt a lot especially when they when they try to fly up your three. Yeah come on like if you're gonNA catch me at least Luebbe up. Yeah craft me with your body baby spit on it. Just a little bit please. Yeah at least at the minimum so on a slightly darker note. I'm going to going to read a couple stories and hit you guys with some some spooky so the idea behind will will so it's will go apostrophe WIS but I'm GonNa say we'll of the WISP because I don't have a cool. I don't have a cool accent and so I'm not allowed to say will wisp Bay I'll say will of the WISP or whatever so a peasant. Traveling home at dusk sees a bright light. Traveling along ahead of him looking closer he sees it. The light is a lantern held by a dusky little figure which he follows for several miles. All of a sudden he feels himself standing on the edge of vast chasm with roaring torrent of water rushing below him at that precise moment the lantern carrier leaps across the gap lifts the light high over its head. Lets out a malicious laugh and blows out the light leaving the poor peasant a long way from home standing in pitch darkness at the edge of a precipice so generally these will will of the. West circled lantern. Jack's Spunky ignace Fatuma sack full fools fire and Hinky punks varies. I'm also known as spunky. Ooh You know it baby that Ashley you with your with your sweet non unim- diamond hurt and my not shirt. Yeah my no sure. Oh we didn't even say that. A year boy dis hitting you with a no-shirt nipples out today it's Nips our because we're doing a remote recording we're in. I'm in the closet studio from a season one episode. Do and it's. It's a little toasty. It looks toasty. I can see your sweat. Well let's just because I haven't showered in three days because I don't even do video conference calls. I just I just dial in even better. He's on mute and go smoke a reefer. Fuck yeah so like I was saying Lantern Jack Fools fire a bunch of different weird shit but across the board Most cultures have a connection with will of the wisps. Now generally people think like. Oh that's That's a British bullshit like that. That stuff just goes on over in Like the UK and they have really rich histories and everything. So none of that happened stateside in America. But now you would actually be surprised. They're like it's really everywhere. Which is what intrigued me most about this was that it's not just like it's not just based in the UK though a lot of my stuff is going to be from Europe because they have the best stories there are. There are these cases in Japan China Russia. The South America Ed North America even Australia's some So if you don't know what will the West Sir Lantern? Jack are generally. They're known as lights that are manifesting themselves to mislead followers to like an impending doom or unfortunate situations. You put that pop tart away my So they'll generally lead people away or try to get them lost Or even lead them to their death. I in some cases I people refer to will the wisp as a saying that symbolizes hope or a goal that leads one on but is impossible to reach much like us having a successful podcast. Oh yes it's just going to say. I saw one of those hovering over my microphone. Which is it's fair. Yeah we'll never be famous so don't ask for autographs or please do pay pay in advance. We need a an advance payment for those things so like I said a lot of a lot of this as it has a dark aspect to it. Because you're out. At night you see these little little prancing dancing lights in the distance. You're like what the fuck is that. You're intrigued usually. That'S A bad sign. If you're seeing things when you're out at night nine times out of ten it's not gonNA help you. It's not Jesus. He's not there for you. I promise it's generally not good. Yeah however there is a belief that not all wisps or lights or orbs are bad There's some cultures and beliefs out there that Sometimes user just trapped souls that are looking to be baptized There's a story that comes out of Wales I believe that there was a guy that was baptizing his son in just a little pool out like out in the forest outside their home and wisps started lining up and he started baptizing whisks just power power of gross compels so as as anti Christian Anti God as I am a lot of this a lot of the lower behind all of this has to do with souls and trapped souls and demons. And we'll talk about it later but along the lines of like fairies Now Like I said they are usually trapped. Souls they're looking to be baptized or in some cases in this was actually referred to in Bram Stoker's Dracula I that these wisps will lead to treasure or Leprechaun. Gold in Ireland is one of the beliefs Lou now. These positive ideas of them like Oh. Yeah these these little lights will lead you home. They'll help you when you're out and you're drunk and you need to. You need to find your way home. I like a lot of that is. That's why people follow them. And that's why the impending doom and the negative aspect comes in as because people are like. Oh yeah they're just harmless at a lights. My friend found treasure following one of these. And it's like no these things are seriously gonna try to fuck over. It's just that sn okay. So I feel like that's a lot of the reason why you get these stories of people that are like Oh my God like a wisp of a little light of follow it. Maybe it'll help me out because there are positive stories. And 'cause if everything you hear about a whispers negative you're not gonNA follow it like it's like saying Oh. I saw a demon and he said Hey. Come into my woods and you're like oh I've heard nothing but bad things about demons all follow him like fuck no book. Would you do that no nobody? So so what you're saying is this episode is actually sneaky. Schemers part three in disguise. Sneaky paranormal schemes. Part three perfect. I'll cheers to that So it's it's kind of interesting getting to read through some of these odd accounts that are just an. I shouldn't say that their accounts. Some of them are just folklore. Weird stories to keep kids from sneaking out of their house at night Little things to keep people from sneaking off their property. You're going into different. Areas are staying out too late really. It's it's just like any lower like any any folk tale that normally. It's it's made just to scare little kids to follow. What what the hell their parents are telling them to do. which honestly I feel like. That's an effective way to get through to. Kids is to come up with fairy tales and scare the shit out of exactly. You can't if you can't teach them spook them. That's that's I've got a banner right here in my room on. This says that yeah it was interesting my my pe teacher my physical education teacher in in middle school. I had the same thing but in instead of spook them it was crossed out and said molest. I don't know why it was a weird thing where it must have been a Typo at the fact that it was painted on it was just weird. Just one of those funny things. Oh just one of those things you know. Oh Mr Jackson you goof for some reason there were all these cameras in there too. I have no idea why. That's so weird. Did you see any weird lights or did you just invite you over to drink alcohol alone with him? No but after you hit us on the back of the head a few times you would see like you'd see stars. I don't know if that counts..

"And another fifty four million internationally bringing the total to one hundred and ten million dollars on a budget estimated to be close to forty million much of which came from Lucas. Mgm Over thirty companies joined on board prior to the release of the film to offer product. Tian's to willow. There were action figures cereals. Lunchboxes cheese coloring books. Jigsaw Puzzles boardgames. Children's meals even random things like underwear and camping equipment. Were all made for willow because they thought this was going to be a big blockbuster. Although technically this was profitable the returns were not deemed enough to continue with Lucas. Intended film trilogy. He wanted to make a couple of more movies after this. Nevertheless Saga of Willow of good and Laura. Dannon did continue in the following years later with a trilogy of books afterward entitled Chronicles of the Shadow War which featured stories detailed by George. Lucas and they were fleshed out with words by Chris Claremont. Who happened to be the writer? Who popularized the X men? Comic books in the nineteen hundred s willow is intended to serve as a life preserver project for both Lucasfilm and MGM. Who are both struggling at the time? They were suffering a string of box office leading into one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Lucas in particularly felt that the company's reputation had tarnished after suffering back to back losses with the disappointing box office of Labyrinth. And the Mega Turkey that was Howard the duck. Unfortunately this attempt at temple released barely covered. It's expenses while tie in products. Ended up languishing on store shelves after the reviews and the box office returns. Were not up to expectations. Lucas ended up defending himself in the media from criticism. You know they were writing about him saying he was regurgitating Warren concepts and they thought he was throwing money at special effects the to try to cover over that regurgitation. Lucas ended up defying critics. To come up with a way to make a film of the quality of Willow at less than the cost that he put into it. It has been said that part of the reason for the negative marks by some critics is due to the preconceived notion that will a would be much larger hit for all ages. Had they known that this was destined to struggle to find an audience? They might have been a little bit. More charitable in channeling expectations for more specific demographics that might have found some enjoyment in it namely children and those who enjoy fantasy genre and that's who ultimately came out to champion the film. Ron Howard stated a couple of months after the film's release. He was confused toward the critical assessment of willow given that audience. Reaction was actually stronger for this movie than his last. Two films that critics ended up loving splashing cocoon both Howard and Lucas ended up writing off the critical responses having unrealistic expectations due to pass successes a good not. Great Film is considered to be a disappointment by critics. If it happens to be a lesser film than anything you've done in the past and that certainly did hold true for Lucas and Howard that despite its problems it ended up getting nominated for two Academy Awards for its visual effects in it. Sound Effects Editing. Lost both of those words to the technical marvel that was who framed Roger Rabbit which happened to have visual effects done by Lucas's own industrial light. Magic group willow ended up suffering due to the reputation of George Lucas at the time after having his hand on revolutionizing Hollywood for the prior decade he ended up struggling to stand out amid other productions that followed in the wake of Star Wars and Indiana Jones and that leaves willow feeling like just another attempt to deliver the same thrills all over again. It's reputation has been helped by the lower expectations out. Lackluster reviews middling box office do provide and it has actually become a cult favorite among many. Who think it's better than what many have said in the past? But after the likes of Excalibur and legend and Conan the barbarian and dragon slayer in about another dozen or so notable entries in the fantasy genre of the nineteen eighty S. It was hard to revolutionize genre that never quite cold into the mainstream and was already becoming passe by nineteen eighty-eight and looking back though. It is a better film than many of its predecessors so hindsight has been kinder for those who love this Shandra. It does hit enough of the right marks at the right times to merit a recommendation. Even if so many properties in book and film form have hit. Those saint marks many times before as with many imaginative films of the nineteen eighties. That failed. It eventually did find its audience. That truly does love it. And it's reputation has gradually shifted enough for generations who grew up watching it on home media to consider willow among the better fantasy entries that the decade of the nineteen eighties has to offer so for all of that. I'm going to actually give it a mild recommendation. Three stars out of four stars on my skill me to recommend it for people who like this kind of movie if you're a kid and if you're a lover of the fantasy genre certainly this is kind of a precursor to the Lord of the rings films before the Special Effects Really could be rendered in a much more realistic fashion with that. But you know that's not surprising. Given that there are many aspects of Lord of the Rings Ian Willow so if you like the Lord of the Rings Films I would actually put this up there. Some people might even consider this a better version of the hobbit. Then Peter Jackson's attempt at a trilogy making the habit so I do recommend it. If this sounds of appeal to you you probably will get a kick out of willow enough to give it at least three stars. Maybe more if you happen to be so inclined to this kind of movie in Recent News as of this recording in March of twenty twenty there is a sequel series that is planned and in development for the Disney plus streaming service with Ron Howard doing some production and his screenwriter for the Stars Film Solo Jonathan Kasdan scripting and that will promise to return Warwick Davis into the Willow Rawal. Although the ceres might focus more on a grownup Laura Dannon so something to look forward to. If you're a fan of willow coming down the pipe hopefully fingers crossed on that so anyway. If you have your own thoughts on willow and you want to impart them to me you can find my contact information on my website. That's a clip. Stir Dot net. Wip S. T. E. R. DOT net. You email me if I may twitter. Feed facebook page by INSTAGRAM. All of those are adequate ways to get in touch with me. As far as what? I'm going to be covering next week. Well it's kind of in keeping with that actually mentioned during the course of this review. It's another film that Lucas had his hand in. Even though it's not a Lucasfilm Phil and it does feature Jean Marsh in the role of the main heavy. She's playing princess and evil princess in that film the kind of dark and twisted the one that gave a lot of children nightmares. I'm not even sure if I'm GonNa let my daughter watch this. Although she does like some darkened twists and stuff to it is from one thousand nine hundred five and it is called return to and that will be the film. I'm covering on next episode returned to is for next week. Thanks everyone for listening and joining me on this trip around the world in eighties movies..

"Eight dichotomy. Which is what the Ellen's call. The race of humans. Day are much larger than the male Winston willows brethren. Don't think it's a good idea to keep her around the evil which Queen Bath. Marta has millions including her warrior. Princess daughter named Socia and efficient skull faced warrior General Keel actively searching for this baby smuggled out from under her nose because she may be. The prophecy foretold to in her reign. She has this special mark upon her arm and willow ends up accepting the mission to return the baby. Back to the first Daikin meets with a few other. Nell wins until along the way they encounter and recruit that I die keeney that they see mad marred again played by VAL kilmer. He's a skilled the down his luck mercenary. He agrees to take the baby in exchange for his release from capture. That keen are in the midst of a war with allegiance on. Bath Mortis side and that puts Laura Danone's fate in jeopardy. Should they fall? Short however willow gets another directive from fairy to find this good witch on a remote island and with Madigan and a couple of brownies. Who are these human like races that are even smaller than the no wins? They're only nine inches in height. Willow seeks to find a way to protect the baby from bath. Mortar now most of the interior for Willow was shot in L. Street studios in London. There were exteriors shot in England and in New Zealand so it was all over the map here. Some work was also done on. Lucas's home turf in Marin county including the Muir Woods San Pablo Bay and Skywalker ranch scenic cinematography here by Adrian. Biddle is a highlight in this land of Regal Castles and lush forests and lofty mountain backdrops and visually. This is gorgeous. A fairytale as there has been on the screen up to that point and as with all of his productions Lucas receives one for work from his visual Effects Company industrial light magic although some of the effects were ally costlier than the anticipated especially this morphing the more moments involving the magical turning of one creature into another into another into another isla had invented the morphing technique for this movie. They ended up feeling to get that process patented so that they could sell that technique to others who might want to use it in their films and they kind of lost millions. Potentially there. The story ends up going off the rails and its climax. Maybe that might be a step too far for some viewers. It's really wacky. That's kind of part of the film's charm for some viewers. It combines really stunning visuals with James. Horner's rousing score. And I think willow compels as a sight and sound experience. Even when the story tends to get formulaic three foot. Four inch Tall Work Davis. He gets his first starring role at only seventeen years old during the making return of the Jedi. Lucas had ideas of making Davidson star of this long. Just dating idea. Ron Howard. Initially was skeptical about Davis. He thought that he was too young at seventeen to play a married father of two. Lucas fought hard but he ended up leaving the decision to Howard on who better could be cast as willow if you could find somebody which put Davidson competition with hundreds of others auditioning for that part. The dishes were long and they were arduous. But Howard felt that this was a good test to see if Warwick Davis was ready for the long days and nights of the eventual shoot. And what's Val Kilmer? On the opposite Davis. He realized that the chemistry was evident there and he knew that he had his willow and Matt Martin Right then and there and from there Warwick Davis would undergo a lot of training horse riding. He had a phobia of horses fencing magic tricks and a lot of baby handling training to make sure that he fit this part to a t. Davis developed an American accent for we love because Ron Howard felt that American audiences would have difficulty understanding his English dialect even though the cast was mostly British anyway. Howard had Davis study the films of Jimmy Stewart in particular because he wanted Davis to embody the same calm but very steady everyman persona kilmer. Who beat out the likes of other actors like John? Cusak Matt Moore. Who Happen to be Max headroom. At the time Kilmer is very fun to watch. He applies this juggling style to his sword. Fighting that makes it very unique. Despite a game and Comical Performance Mad Martikainen I think he falls a bit short as far as being a compelling reluctant hero kind of fails to take hold in the manner of others of this mold like Hans Solo or in the Jones but kilmer still manages to get his do here. He became interested while he was making this film. In pursuing the actress Joanne whalley they became romantically involved during the shoot. And she initially opposed seeing her co Star on the side but she eventually found him hard to resist. Their offset. Romance caused some scenes to be reshot to capitalize on their newfound chemistry and they eventually became married about three months before the release of the film the roles of the Nineties High Brownies. They went to Comedians Kevin Pollack and Rick Overton. They were shot. After principal filming had completed and they were inserted using the tech wizardry of Aylum g marsh returns to a similar role to the one that she did for return to is as the main heavy. Lucas actually had a hand in helping to get return to Oz made behind the scenes and he really liked gene marshes portrayal there so he used it here and after the largest casting call for little people for any film in history up to that point about two hundred forty of them would end up participating in willow as actors and stunt personnel extras. There's an irony here. Willow lacks many of the humanistic touches. That George Lucas had sought Ron Howard to deliver Lucas emphasized them conceptually but once production was underway. He ended up obsessing more with the visual components. And this really became the kind of visual effects film that he swore it would never be and he ended up getting a lot of the backstory to the characters that he intended in favor of extending the action in battle sequences backstory. That was put in. The original script does remain if you read the novelization and also. Marvel's Comic Book Adaptation. There was much more fleshing out of these characters before they get to their battles. I would say there are probably more emotions humanity to be found in say an Indiana Jones. Film which willow does tend to emulate in its action sequences. Even the Willow tries more deliberately to pluck at our heartstrings. Now I would say the only genuine emotional connection that does occur happens between willow and his wife. Kaya kyw's played by. Julie Peters Peters had no prior acting experience at all before taking the Cairo working as an audio typist inner day job and she still continued doing that. Even after Willow A- Laura Dannon. The baby is played by Twin Sisters Ruth and Gene Greenfield on the screen. The twins went through many hours of filming to try to ensure that the crew would have a whole host of emotional reaction shots that they could use throughout the story depending on the situation. In addition to the Greenfield's who were brought in near the end of the shoot for close ups nearly twenty other infants were borrowed from a local hospital with permission from their parents of course and they were used during the shoot at one time or another including a thirteen pound motorized standing. That Davis carried around because the age of Laura Dannon was to be only three months old but it took many more money than that six months to a year for the film to be completely shot. Lucas and company. They did have a bit of fun with some notable film critics at the time. Some of the bad guys are named. After these film critics general keells knock on the prominent critic for New Yorker magazine Pauline Keel while according to the press kits and the novelization the ugly to headed beast. That's in this film is called an Ebor. Sisk Ron Howard jokes. That the heads were modeled after his brother. Clint the Iverson is clearly poking fun at the two headed duo of film critics known as Siskel and Ebert it was originally going to be called Cisco Bird but that might have made it a little too obvious. The name of the fairy maiden of the forest sharell Andrea came from combining the names of the wives of Ron Howard and Bob Dolman Cheryl and Andrea respectively and Linda. Ronstadt was put there in the middle. That was Lucas's girlfriend at the time willow when it finally came out it debuted atop the US box office in its initial week of release but it ended up failing to catch the kind of fire that they were hoping to achieve in the end. Despite a twenty million dollar marketing campaign launched total box office returns were fifty six million dollars in the United States.

"Read your plants of the week. They are plants and then there are two very different kinds at the same time. I mentioned a little bit ago about bringing some color in getting close to us. It is is that time of year where I think there's been enough cold Where we can cut pussy willow and forsythias branches whole big branches if forsythias pussy so you will usually need a little pruning anyhow and bring them in and as quick as you can? Even to the point you carry a bucket of water or a pan of water era with the so that you can plunge that bottom of the stem into the water it would be advantageous to have the water slightly warm and so on. So that you can enforce pussy willow now there are. Many many kinds. Willow is a very very large group of plants and we're looking at one that is called well. First of all willow is say lakes essay lax. And then you WanNa be a little careful which one you get because They range from a shortest artis. Three feet on the ground covering types to as much as one hundred feet tall and seventy why. Yeah you don't want to get those mixed WanNa get those just mixed up bidding up the one that we would be using for for this. Cutting process is usually called Salix. discolor neither knows you have to get into those details or not. But that's disrobe tree if you will. It is quite capable of hitting twenty feet and even more as a boy. I can remember climbing one that my dad had trained into a tree free I remember the neighbor kid. That brody's little hatchet overt strips of bark off duck about an uproar but in in any event those branches are pretty much well still dormant terms the outside. But I think they've had enough cold that you can bring them in. Even even to the extent that where everything kind of has its duration you could start bringing in some branches now. And then when they start to fuzz out if you will Turn and yellowish on the tips and so on and be done you can have brought some more. In to the point you could probably bring in some each of three weeks and extend the beauty on through There is one other willow In in the reasonable size range that is called torture Tusa now. Let's not worry about that but it is one that is not for its catkins. It's four. It's crazy growth. It's the it's well. It's a mainstay to a lot of garden or let you say indoor designers Whether the ranches are dry or they are they're growing. There would be a few catkins on them. But they grow They're messed up genetically addict. I'm GONNA put it. They don't girl very straight period than some of the stems will be similarly similar to round there will be a multiple multiple tutor those and then coming out of that. Call it tights down. You can have a spread half an inch or three quarters of an inch of multiple apple. New stems coming out and get crazy. That's a plant that you can enjoy indoors now and Be careful where you throw it when you take it out because if you if you throw a pussy willow down into loose soil or in the back of your compost pilots girl..

And when their parents again brought food, they said, we will not so much as touch. One flies leg. No, not if we were dying on until you have settled, whether we are respectable, children are not. The bear has been here and has insulted us. Then the old king said, be easy. He shall be punished.
