Unfortunately the people of Paris felt very differently about the song clue acquisition, the issue was that the king gave the Palace to Marie as a personal gift, rather than purchasing it as property of the French, Crown Parisians were scandalized by this unprecedented generosity, and protested what they saw as immoral behavior, while the queen's ailing son threatened her position at court. Whispers about song clue became another point of vulnerability revitalizing mistrust about the schemes of an Austrian outsider. Rumors even spread that the palace would pass to the emperor of Stra on the Queen's death. marie-antoinette knew her name was once again the talk of the town, but at least it wasn't the court whispering about her this time. The French public's discontents were far enough away to ignore, so she threw herself into decorating. Song, clue! Unfortunately. This created another opportunity for the French people to criticize her lavish spending. The Queen had her third child. Louis Sheryl on Easter Sunday March, twenty, seventh, seventeen, eighty five, but even this propitious birth wasn't enough to stop the rumor mill in the streets of Paris. satirists waved pamphlets in the air, luring and buyers with increasingly outrageous stories about the queen. The more sorted the better Marie was portrayed as extravagant, foolish and sexually insatiable. She was accused of engaging. With men and women indiscriminately. Liba leasts the tabloids of their time also personally blamed the queen for the country's growing financial woes, this strife was in fact caused by years of warfare and corruption, but exaggerations sold more papers than facts. Authors greatly embellished events that Marie hosted at her Petito Yano. Her parties were described as orgies, her dinners as appeal and feasts. Reading about such luxury and excess while people were starving in the streets, generated strong resentment toward the wealthy royals specifically Marie. The Queen Dinner Best to appear in different, but she couldn't escape the fact that the gossip was beginning. Seriously impact her reputation throughout France. So she did her best to prove the rumors wrong. When Shall Bay Mare? The Royal Jeweller tried to sell her a ludicrously expensive demand necklace.

On July twelfth seventeen, eighty-five, the clean received a letter from Bamieh, saying that he was happy that he'd finally made a deal to sell her the most beautiful set of diamonds in the world. Marie didn't know what to make of the letter, so she put it out of her mind. Unfortunately the matter wouldn't be put to rest so easily. A few weeks later bay mount desperately sought an audience with the Queen, but she refused to see him. Marie idly asked her lady of the bedchamber Madame Compo if she had any idea why the jeweler was acting so strangely, kumble admitted that she'd had a disturbing conversation with Bay Mare which she related to the Queen. Bay Mayor was under the impression that he had sold the exorbitant diamond necklace to Marie. The jeweler claimed to have a note signed by the Queen Herself. That granted cardinal raw for mission to buy the piece on her behalf. When Marie heard this, she was shocked and furious. She never authorized anyone to buy the necklace for her. She didn't even want it. So if a note to that effect was floating around with her signature on it, it was forged, which was an audacious crime in itself, wanting to settle the matter once and for all Marie broaden in Baron dubrow Tae Minister of the Royal Household. He would handle the situation. It, just so happened. That brought has own longstanding beef with wrong. When he learned that his rival was involved in a scandal, he decided to capitalize on the opportunity to destroy wrong completely. However with all the vicious things being said about Marie Antoinette in the streets of Paris raw taste priority should have been resolving the affair quietly to protect the queen's already damaged reputation, the morning of August, fifteenth, seventeen, eighty, five found cardinal, rural, formerly dressed in his red pontifical robes, ready to celebrate mass. However, he was urgently summoned to the Kings private chambers instead. The king didn't waste any time on pleasantries, Louis immediately began questioning row are demanding to know who had told him to buy the necklace for his wife Roe I answered that a woman named Gone Taste Gen Galore moot had given him a letter in the Queen's own hand, commissioning him to make the purchase on her behalf. At this Marie interrupted enraged how it roll on thinks she would choose him for such a delicate arrangement when they hadn't as much as spoken in eight years. And why would you use this Dula Mut woman as an intermediary? The Queen had never even heard of her. Raw defiant produced the offending note, which was signed Marie Antoinette de France, but far from exonerating him. The letter made Ruan situation much worse. The problem lay in the last two words do France. All Nobles knew that the Queen Always signed her name. Marie Antoinette King Louis was rage that Rwanda had fallen for such an obvious fake.

Nolan #3 - Insomnia / Blow the Man Down / True History of the Kelly Gang

"From Chicago. This is film spotting. I'm Adam Kanner and I'm Josh. Larsen can't be easy to keep working after three days. No sleep to keep focus. You're seeing things yet. Cause little flashes tricks alight that's Robin Williams with Al Pacino in Christopher Nolan's insomnia from two thousand and two as the follow up to his mind. Bending breakout hit. Memento insomnia struck some at the time as a frustratingly straightforward thriller. This week we continue our Nolan who've review with a fresh look plus we'll have thoughts on three new releases all available online more. Can I get up Pacino ahead? Unfilled SPOTTING Welcome to film spotting Josh. The theaters are closed. But the movies keep coming at least if you know where to look this week. We've got reviews of three new releases. Include ONE. That's definitely a golden brick. Were the debut. That's the cozy noir thriller. Blow the man down a feature debut set in Downey's main and the down under set the true history of the Kelly gang from director. Justin Kurt Sel and the high school set Sela and the spades one. You caught up with Josh Ross. Going to continue our Christopher Nolan who've review with two thousand? Two's insomnia the black sheep. Maybe of the Nolan filmography. We'll see if it does deserve that reputation later in the show first though let's talk some new movies for a change including that Australian import true history of the Kelly gang mother soldier pan. You cost me you. Can that back a child? It is already traveling. Full tilt toward the men are would become. That's from the trailer for True History of the Kelly gang which is available to rent ondemand this weekend. The director is Justin Kerr. Zal who previously made twenty eleven the snow town murders than in two thousand fifteen. He did Macbeth. Which starred Michael Faster and Marion Cotillard? All three of them re teamed for two thousand sixteen assassin's creed now. Kelly gang is set in colonial Australia. Where Kelly and his group of anarchists violently rebel against their British rulers nineteen. Seventeen George MCI plays Ned Kelly. The film also stars Russell. Crowe Nicholas Holt Thomasson. Mackenzie and Charlie Hunnam so strong. Cast their Adam. You're able to get an early look at this one before. It's on demand release. Did the cast live up to. Its Promise House the film in general some of it definitely did in terms of the cast. This is actually my first. Kerr Zal film. Haven't seen any of the other three that you mentioned despite the fact that Michael Fast Bender has been in those two that you mentioned and I'm always down for Good Shakespeare Adaptation. I can't compare obviously this film the Kelly Gang to his adaptation of Macbeth specifically but there is a lot of the Scottish play in his telling of Ned Kelly. Se Davis from our beloved. The Baba Duke plays his mother in this film and she is not someone to cross. She's domineering she's vengeful. It's born from years of oppression as a woman and as an Irish woman living under English rule in Australia. You hear her in the trailer. Seda a young Ned. You're a man. Now you go out and show the world. This isn't a gentle mother's encouragement. It's an order and like Macbeth himself. As ned gets closer to his fate the matter he gets and that unhinged hallucinatory spirit is. What colonel taps into visually think about the late nineteenth century? We get in. John Hill coats the proposition as a counterpoint. This is not that at all. This is realism clashing with fantasy to the point where there are times in certain sequences and shots. Josh especially a recurring motif of a man riding a horse. That feels more like more door than the Bush way outside Melbourne. And so I've dropped Macbeth. I've dropped Lord of the rings throw in the assassination of Jesse James by the Coward. Robert Ford and the pop aesthetic of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Except with punk instead and you get some sense of what watching the true history of the Kelly. Gang is really like which may sound really amazing to you and other people. Yeah I'm I'm hooked so far. Yeah it's definitely a lot and honestly it was a little bit too much for me. Wants so much to be this fiery sneer. That doesn't conform do conventional biography and it's full of these big ideas about colonialism and storytelling and masculinity and challenging gender and sexual norms. The gang the Kelly gang actually wears dresses for me. It's just all too much of a performance of assault to really embrace and actually MCI is part of it. He's a really intriguing presence and has an unsettling physicality that he definitely brings to this role. A presence was kind of all he was in nineteen seventeen. That's kind of by the design of that film and I haven't read anything about his performance but I wouldn't be shocked to learn that he went really method here that he he went so deep. And as I said there's there's an intensity to it there's a real physicality to it but he's burrowed so deep into it. So deep into Ned Kelly psyche that he never emerges for me and I can appreciate the audacity of what Kerr's doing here and his. I our first shot of young. Ned actually is him peering through a slit in his makeshift home while his mother is engaged in a sex act with a paying customer. That's a British officer played by Hunnam and then later at the end it is big showdown with authorities. He's wearing iron over his head for protection. With the sliver is is that matches that exact same point of view so crucial knows what he's doing absolutely and he does have a really game cast Russell. Crowe shows up for a little bit in this movie. And there's a lot of fun as outlaw. Who Basically pays for? He buys a young Ned as an indentured servant to teach him the trade. And I really like Nicholas Holt. In this movie. He shows up maybe about midway through as a really charming despicable and entitled English constable. Who BEFRIENDS NED in the family? Until the family decides that they're not going to subjugate themselves to him like he expects everyone to do so some juicy fund performances here and crystals definitely doing allot as I said in terms of the filmmaking sounds like there might even be a little bit of animal kingdom in there too with the mother son Dynamic and of course the Australians setting so I. I'm intrigued by those comparisons. We'll we'll have to see if the catch up with if it works a little bit better for me. The True History of the Kelly gang is available to rent on demand right. Now the new one you caught up with Josh is called Sela and the spades the directing debut of Theresa Poh. It had its debut back in January at Sundance and it came to Amazon prime. This past weekend in your letterbox review you wrote any movie that mixes the DNA of mean girls. Brick and schooldays has my attention. We're all over the place with our references in this show so far. Tell me more. Yeah this this could be a lazy short and in some ways doing this exercise. But I think it's it is really helpful in this case because those are great films with distinct styles each trying to do something that maybe you hadn't quite seen before done in that way and mixing it all together is really exciting. That also puts a ton of pressure on a relatively small film like Sela and the spades and so I don't know if it's the sort of pressure this movie can entirely bare but I like that. All of these elements are in here that the basic scenario is selling. The speights takes place at an elite boarding school and we follow the illicit dealings and also the the relationships among various student factions there called and each of these factions. They're essentially like criminal gangs. So Sela played by Lovey Simone. She runs the drug-dealing spades. And you know there are maybe some Macbeth Lady Macbeth specifically comparisons to make here in her ambition and the way she holds grip on power. She does take an underclassmen under her wing. But as we come to learn you know it may not be the most altruistic reasons that underclassmen played by Celeste O'Connor now both of those performances are really strong by Simone and O'Connor There are some good supporting turns to. I could see this being one of those smaller. First films where two or three of the actors in them and this happened with mean girls as well right pop up in later films and you really see what what great talents. They have their There's also the whole criminal element calls on brick of course that this is going on among high schoolers beneath the adults is. It's kind of amazing. How little the adults have to play in in this world And then there are some really striking flourishes by PLO as director. And here's where some of the the school days Spike Lee school days comparisons come in because Sela is also the head of the spirit squad for the school and they have a direct address to the camera routine just about what. It's like to be a seventeen year old

"Wife of the slain leader who wins and People Power Allows Imelda Marcos to come back Beth Day Ramalu in the film. Her friend who was married to the general says the Filipinos are very forgiving people. So they let her come back but they did not let her bring the body back for a little. While the body of the body of Ferdinand Marcos which ends up coming back and not getting buried in the hero cemetery as Imelda wants but kind of put on ice in the north like Stalin her mouth and in a mausoleum for thirty years and I don't know if I want to be a spoiler but that's kind of one of the big things that happens at. That of the as Imelda gets hurt dream of bearing Marcos here cemetery but I should say so she comes back and becomes a congresswoman Her son eventually becomes a senator. Her daughter becomes a governor and little by little her her nephews become Mares Congressman. Little by little they start to come back to power and their pushback from those remember military rule. No not really and I think you know they start in their bailiwicks in the north and the south and it's almost like they had a plan to come back little by little and kind of let them do things because they didn't really see the big picture like okay. They have power in the north where Ferdinand Marcos rum in the south. Where Imelda's from not really thinking that this could be on the national stage again but during the in the film Bongbong runs for vice presidency which can be a back door to the presidency in in the Philippines and there I on the return to Mollica neon palace and the top job becomes clear. And do you feel that? She's the political operative behind the rise of her children and her nephews. She's a very powerful matriarch and her son Bongbong admits that he doesn't have the political skills of his mother and his own son says. Dad didn't really want to be a politician. He wanted to be a mathematician but actually says that his grandfather Ferdinand Marcos said go into politics for the money. It's better than math But you see that. He's in a way an accidental politician. The movie is also about political dynasty. And the kind of Ill effects from political dynasty. But they're in their family. It's the family business and and the Philippines is a place where there are come dynastic. Political families is there's scrutiny on all that wealth and the continuation. I mean how much she continues to hold. There is scrutiny but there are not always consequences so the opposition certainly talked about the Algonquin wealth. The woman who becomes the Vice President Lenny Roberto ask Bongbong Marcos about the ill-gotten wealth at the debates There have been hundreds of cases in the Philippines trying to recuperate the ill-gotten wealth and yet the marcoses have been able to hold on to much of the wealth One of the things that Andy Battista predict says the under- deteriora- who discover as aligned with the marcoses. Many of the cases will be dropped that detect as not interested in keeping up the power of the PCGG and there is a desire to have a solicitor. General take over who is actually involved in Bongbong Marcos campaign and in the last several months three of the big cases have been dismissed. Draw as a little bit. Clear the line between Rodrigo Deteriora- and the Marcus Family. That was kind of breaking news. Revelation that happened towards the end of my time. Filming there To Turkey was elected in two thousand sixteen and he had spoken during his campaign of his admiration for the dictator Ferdinand Marcos and kind of his admiration of of him as a strong man. But it wasn't clear that there was an alliance until he was in a press conference and says when nobody would fund my campaign. I mean Marcos gave me money and I'm is in the audience and looks. Kinda surprised that what seems to be a spontaneous revelation which she in Bongbong deny. She's one of the daughter and she is the daughter of Melda. Marcus there seems to be a quid. Pro Quo because Shortly after that Imelda Marcos gets her longtime dream of Marcos body being buried in the hero cemetery. This is something that the activists fought vehemently against and every president since nineteen eighty six did not allow because of the soul and money but also because of martial law and the thousands of thousands of people that were incarcerated tortured killed during martial law. He was not considered a hero and so for him to be buried in their version of Arlington was Something that was unimaginable. Before you obviously said several times that this sort of idea of being doomed to repeat history and here the Philippines now has a leader. Who is another strongman? How do you see that as mirroring or parallel to the marcoses? It was such a shock when Deteriora- one and then what he proceeded to do after winning I think to the people like May and etta these activists to have another strongman who also began extra-judicial killings. May says there have been up to thirty thousand extra-judicial killings in the name of a so-called drug or but without any due process He has created a climate of fear which is similar to martial law and so it's almost like post traumatic stress for the activists who fought martial law. It's there's so many things under deteriora- that are similar from his attacks on the media to Starting TO CONTROL. Congress and the judiciary and You Pine the that actually. He's paving the way for Bongbong to step in. He hasn't hit in the fact that he would prefer that. Bongbong become Vice President. Bongbong lost by a very small margin and then create an electoral protests yearly. Similar of his father did the nineteen eighty six when he lost the election and then claimed to have one and it's been with the Supreme Court for two years and deter. Tei has often said that he would much prefer Bongbong Marcos being that position. The resurgence of DEMARCO's maybe that she never went away. It seems indicative of the political moment. We're in around the world with a surge of aircrafts and the rise of a new authoritarianism. And I know this film is about one person specifically but what do you think it says? More broadly about the time ran. Yeah I mean for me. The film really spoke to the fragility of democracy and how in the space of one election there was. There was so much that was lost in terms of the democracy that they created after nineteen ninety-six and also the appeal of the strong man. I mean one of the things that happened from the money that was stolen by the marcoses. Is it kind of helped create persistent poverty at least along the persistent poverty in a way that made people kind of desperate for somebody who promised change and quick change? Which do not dead. I think it also speaks to the rewriting of history. And how if people don't remember history repeats itself and the combination of not teaching martial law rigorously in the schools with a disinformation campaign. Fueled by social media was a toxic brew in terms of young people especially people who were too young to remember before nineteen ninety-six believing the propaganda of the Marcus us at the very beginning that you car and unreliable narrator and she has amazing moment In the film where she says truth isn't real perception Israel. Charge me a little bit about that. Well that's another thing that I think is so brilliantly describes our time and her incredible insight into the kind of media landscape image landscape shows. Perception is real. The truth is not. It also speaks to their ability to rewrite history and in the film you see her very conscious of image and the way she's kind of presenting to camera whether it's her hair and makeup coming in or moving a gold sheep. That's in the foreground of of the frame In the film what you discover little by little is that wall. She's an incredibly charismatic storyteller. Many of the stories have no corroboration in any historic accounts or first person testimonials and so I realized as a filmmaker. I needed to go out of the Marcos bubble and bring in these truth tellers like mayor Rodriguez survivor of torture. During MARTIAL LAW TO COUNTER IMELDA Marcos claim for example. That martial law was the best time of Marcos so one of the ways I realized in the beginning that her stories were not true was with the Animal Island. She said that there were no animals. Left that when she came back she went back there and there are no animals left. Well there are as many animals as there were in the beginning more than one hundred and and I had the chance to see film the animals and also their caretaker freelancer.

"Want to actually start by asking. What led you to the idea of looking at Melda. Marcos will so in my photography and filmmaking. I've been working on the subject of wealth for a long time. Last Book and show and movie was called Generation Wealth which brought together twenty five years of looking at materialism and consumerism and the one percent and then equality and the fact of the one percent on everybody else. This was the first time I've looked to politics and power but I came to melt Marcos because she had been a kind of iconic reference in my work on wealth but didn't know she was alive and back in the Philippines congresswoman until. I read this article in Bloomberg by this journalist. William Miller which was about this animal island that she created and this was kind of the most ultimate at egregious extravagance. How did decide she wanted to have her own personal safari zoo. Whatever it was. And how did you go about it? She went to Kenya with President Marcos for a conference and she saw these African animals and she said I would like to have them for the Philippines and in the film. She says there were no people on this island that they selected Except a few that she could tell what to do. Well actually there were two hundred and fifty four indigenous families that got displaced. They had kind of ship. Noah's Ark type ship where they put these zebras giraffes and other exotic animals on and they ship them over to the Philippines and it was a very extravagant plan with veterinarians and caretakers. But once the marcoses went into exile the animals lost their funding and their patrons and so a man who has young bureaucrat. At the time for the in Sarajevo kind of singlehandedly cares for these animals with great love but little resources or training. There wasn't really a long term plan and so there have now been for generations of inbreeding. Because there's no blood so in a way. The animals are doomed Genetically and that became a metaphor for political dynasty and the L. Effects of political dynasty. It was really just the starting point but for me. It was symbolic of the kind of recklessness of wealth and power but what ended up happening is I thought it was going to be a story about history. And I ended up rushing into the present with a contemporary political story about money and power and as Imelda ran her son. Bang for the vice presidency and it became a comeback story. How did you sit down for interviews? She agreed to the first interview pretty quickly. The journalist who had written this Bloomberg article collaborated with me and he introduced me to her and I think at the time when we began in two thousand fourteen. I think she missed the attention of being on the World Stage. I think she liked the interaction with journalists and foreign journalist at the time President Aquino was in power Nike no the opposition and so the Marcos were kind of sidelined even though she was congresswoman at that point but they were not you know the people in power and I think the stakes were lower than as we progressed. They started getting momentum in the election and I think in a way. The election opened up more access because it became a comeback story. It's interesting how you we've imagery throughout this film and I think the sense of opulence and the kind of almost like Louis. Couture's sense of a gilded life. Describe for us what it felt like walking into her space and seeing her and her gowns. Yeah I mean I kind of fell in love with the aesthetic and playing with that it very much resonated for me in terms of the work that I did generation wealth and the kind of aspiration to royalty and what I've heard coin dictator chic the kind of aesthetics of opulence. Imelda somebody who loved being able to Hobnob with people like Prince Charles and the Shah of Iran and her space was so ornate and gilded but also from another time. I was really interested in the way it was kind of frozen in time. She talked about the past. She was surrounded by the relics of the past the photographs of her with the foreign leaders. The priceless paintings that she acquired during their dictatorship and in her interviews. They're very much adorned by all of her things. And you see servants coming in and attending to her and hair and makeup coming in what happened is as I realized that she was a very unreliable narrator. I realized I needed to bring in truth teller. Scrabble storytellers eye witnesses. Who could check her untruths? And those interviews are very different aesthetically. They're very simple often. People are not wearing makeup and the backgrounds are modest homes or almost quake safe houses and so there was that market contrast between the opulence of Imelda's world I think also felt like A world in decay a world of of fiction and myth making a lot of painted portraits. That they've commissioned in the beginning of the film we see in one of the palaces a giant portrait of Imelda as a kind of mermaid with Ferdinand Marcos. The president has kind of Merman. And then she's holding all the children The the political dynasty in a shell in her hand most of the world knows her because of those shoes that kind of economic image of seeing all those rows and rows and rows of shoes. But tell me about her early life. How did she become Melda Marcos? I tell her backstory. Because I don't think she was always the Imelda the king-maker the kind of Very ambitious power hungry Matriarch that we see in the film I think she begins as Innocent girl from the province who is in the poor part of a rich family and in a way maybe has those emmissions because she sees other members of our family living differently. She loses her mother at a young age and that really marks her and she kind of throws herself in the arms of Marcos when she meets him through being a beauty pageant queen and she says he proposed to her the first twenty minutes and they married in eleven days She's honest about the fact that she's looking for love and she even says looking for a mother and I think that really shapes our Marcos ends up having affairs that kind of hurts her deeply and I think it begins her insatiable thirst for things and power which I think is also looking for the love of the people I think she just loves and has kind of insatiable need for the love of the people the rule of Ferdinand Marcos. Her husband and the President of the Philippines began in nineteen sixty five and continued for two decades. She plays an incredibly significant role. Talk to us a little bit about the role. Yeah I mean. They called it the conjugal dictatorship. She is a kind of force to be reckoned with her son. Bongbong who runs for vice presidency in the film says she's the best politician in the family even better presumably than our husband for the president. He used her as kind of diplomat on the world stage. She was beautiful. She was charming in the film It said that he also liked her leaving so he could have his affairs and also was afraid. There would be a coup so he didn't like to leave but she went around the world and met with Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein and chairman mouse. She says people think they're monsters but they're really her dear friends and they were so generous and kind. She said she didn't like to read books about the leader. She was meeting she. She was just very intuitive and kind of personable in her meetings with people which in a way relates my own view of her because in the film we see that in person. She can be charismatic. Unkind and yet she and her husband were responsible for terrible atrocities. Both corruption taking five to ten billion dollars from the country and also human rights abuses. You speak to a number of people in you mentioned earlier the truth tellers. Those who were tortured during the regime. Can you pick one of those stories and tell it to us? Yeah May Rodriguez tells a very moving story about being a young woman Who is part of the resistance? And and getting arrested during martial law and getting tortured and she tells the heartrending story of being raped and sexually abused and her captors looking to see if she has letters suspecting her of having letters in her private parts she'd never told that story before one of the big themes of the film is about how if history is not taught. If we don't Remember History People Forget. It may says that one of the mistakes that activists made was not insisting that Marshall Lobby taught in the schools and during that time what it exactly mean martial law and headed play out the press was shut down Congress was shut the judiciary's power was taken away. There was a curfew and the opposition was jailed and the resistance was incarcerated. That was torture and there were over. Three thousand people killed. The marcoses Ferdinand and Imelda amass enormous amount of wealth. Billions of dollars. What was their lifestyle like? It was incredibly extravagant. Although I think that antibodies that who was head of the PC who went after the ill-gotten wealth says that tells what the P. C. J. P. C. G. G. was the commission formed in one thousand nine hundred six to recuperate the ill-gotten wealth and they spent years kind of going after did not get a lot of it and he says that he thinks the shoes are a distraction that people focus on the shoes but those were just child's play compared to the jewelry and the paintings and the money in Malta. Says in the film is more than one. Hundred and seventy banks They had palaces all around the country huge stores of jewelry The head of Christie's said rivaling Queen Elizabeth and Elizabeth Taylor. They're still over one hundred seventy paintings missing and these paintings to give you an example of how they've appreciated the monet painting featured in the film the Marcus's bought for under a million dollars and sold for forty million dollars and in the film. You actually show that she sort of seems to be playing. Shell game with her her painting she moves them and so you see you interview her with Akasa behind her and their images of her with these extremely iconic paintings and often they're gone. It was incredible again. What I thought was going to be. A story about. The past comes rushing into the president. I interviewed Andy About Teesta. Head of the pcgg about the ill-gotten wealth which was taken before nineteen ninety-six but while in this period where we were filming beginning in two thousand fourteen the PCGG did arrayed on all of their mansions and apartments. Looking for some of these paintings They had to get a search warrant for the raid and so and it says that a melda. Marcus kept them waiting. I in the lobby for two hours. And by the time they got up to the apartment all of the paintings were gone that you see in her first interview and they've been replaced with photographs of the marcoses but when they asked to go into her master bedroom they said that was off limits. If you're looking for a new podcast check out. None of the above from the original group foundation. The show offers new ideas about the future of America's role in.

Fashion History Now

"So this week April. I thought we were Kinda start talking about fashion wink. We're on the tail end of the month of quote Unquote Fashion Week. We are currently witnessing all the Paris runway shows and I thought this would actually be a great opportunity to suggest a instagram. Follow to our listeners. At Robin Given our OB. I N. G. I. V. H. A. N. She's a fashion critic for the Washington Post and pass dressed guest that absolutely. She came on the show and our very first season to talk to us about the battle over cy which happened in nineteen seventy three and it was basically like a fashion show face off between French. Katori as an American designers. Yes so that was an amazing episode but she is an incredible critic. She's very thoughtful and insightful about her coverage of fashion that I think a lot of our listeners will really appreciate for instance today. She's posting about the Balenciaga show. And she's saying that. The show is thoughtful but she says quote. Thoughtful just stressful. It's very ominous. I think it's kind of a commentary on climate change. I haven't read much else about it. But she also has been writing about kind of the feminist ideologies that Inspire Maria Grazia. Carey's creations for Dr. And how you know that. The fashions and the runway she presents don't really reflect those feminists beliefs. They still reflect this kind of feminine ideal of a woman which is a little counter intuitive or counter to feminism for all women representing all women. That's something that's I guess. Problematic throughout fashion she also has commenting about Virgil Oslo off-white collection. She just doesn't get it. I don't know if you've seen that yet. But he was sending like half Parkas and half tool dresses down the runway. Yes and not only that but one of those tool dresses was actually ripped off. I think it was from givenchy. I don't know if Jeevan she but she ought. There's definitely been comparisons to victor and Ross tool creations and kind of cut out creations. Like it's definitely something that's definitely probably been done before. But I thought the fashion writer Tony Glenville who you could also follow on instagram. How To really insightful? Commentary about some of the collections? That have hit the runway today and he wrote that it's time fashion. Stop treating US too. Don't care close. You know kind of these clothes that we can't really wear in real life. He says you know when you start thinking. The future and designing fashion aware in the real world think about fashion to keep and cherish and fashion to make women look strong and confident. It's not taking the fun out of fashion. It's actually thinking on the subject of fashion as Global Business. And he goes on. That fashion is a creative force. An employer of millions repository of tradition. And Crass let's think about how it can survive in the future and then I wanted to kind of talk to you about this April because he ends with costume belongs in museums. Fashion belongs in our lives and I was curious what your thoughts are on about that. Do you agree with him? Well I mean I think. That's some problematic terminology in terms of exactly how we as fashion historian. Use those words right because all fashion is costume but all costume isn't necessarily fashion. Does that make any sense? Yeah and I think. He's trying to distinguish between this idea of like fashion as as costume as kind of like this performance. Art as a something. That isn't really representative of what we would wear in every day and specifically he was talking about the mosquitoes down by Jeremy Scott. I'm recently which he literally had. It was very much a let them eat cake. Marie-antoinette moment with like tons of Pan Yeas and women in the you know those huge waves reflective of late eighteenth century fashion but they literally came down the runway dressed cakes and like references to eighteenth century panelled gown so a lot of people probably aren't going to wear those clothes. I guess the argument would be if we're just creating fashion for. I guess this like a federal shock value to send it down the runway. Is it still worth it? Should we be doing that or should we be more conscious of the environment and creating fashion? That isn't actually meant to be put on bodies. Well I that actually kind of leads me into the the follow that I want to talk about. Because you said WHO's GonNa wear these things? Well perhaps this next segment of the fashion buying public. Which are drag Queens? So I can definitely see some of those drag Queens on Rupaul drag race adoring that mosquito collection and I would like to recommend to. Our listeners is to follow an instagram account. Called at Drag Bombs D. R. A. G. B. O. M. B. S. and this instagram account is hysterical is actually run by the brother of a former dressed guests. Terrace ain't James. Who CAME ON SEASON? One and talk to us about the intersection in history a sustainability in the fashion industry but her brother. Jordan. He's hilarious. He is obsessed with repulsed dragway. And He's also obsessed with lush products. The cosmetics Carney and so what he does he finds pictures of drag queens and then pairs them up with the lush product that they're outfit and they are hysterical. Some of them are so dead on and so perfect. I showed it to a couple of my friends one time and I tell everybody to follow this all the time. And they're like oh no he has to be the designer of the products and the drag queens are his inspiration but no no no. No that is not the case. He's just really really good at this. So if you WANNA put a giggle in your day follow Jordan on drag vase and I promise you it's GonNa show Ganic smile at your face. I know and I just speaking of. I've never seen this account so I just went to it. And it's Jordan the Raven Claw Lachey. A master bather and he says no drag. Queens harmed in the making of this account. It is pretty incredible. How spot on a lot of these comparisons are. Wow okay well check that out dress listeners. Instagram accounts for you to follow and check out some other things for you to watch them suggestions of some films. I would like to suggest that I just watched. Actually this past week I came across. It's actually a couple years old but I had not seen it. It's a documentary called my generation. That's streaming on Amazon. Have you heard or seen of that? April I have not but you better bet I'm GONNA put it on my list now. I really really liked it Because it is almost entirely comprised of archival footage and photographs. So there's no there's no inter spicing with interviews of people in the modern day there. They just take those voices from those interviews. It's narrated by Michael Caine. It's kind of like has generation and his experience in the nineteen sixties and he interviews. People like famed photographer. David Bailey models penelope tree Mary. Quant twiggy Vidal Sassoon. People interviewed there so integral to this period. And this this documentary. That's really about in the nineteen sixties it just reveals how integral fashion was to the experience of the nineteen sixties by all these interviews. So I highly suggest checking that

This was Paris France in seventeen. Eighty five just four years before the violent breakout of the French revolution crowds formed in the streets every day as people shared stories of their hardship. Francis King Louis the sixteenth and his Queen marie-antoinette could do little to appease the unhappy populous throughout their reign. The king and Queen had alienated themselves from their people with their lavish spending habits supported by oppressive taxation by the mid seventeen eighty S. It seemed that the king and Queen couldn't appear in public without causing some kind of public scandal. The present public were eager to take them down a notch and sour their image across all of France and this was no more true than in the case of the diamond necklace. Affair in which an ornate diamond necklace was stolen from the crown.

'Fight or Flight' Nerves Make Mice Go Gray

"They say that Marie Antoinette's hair turned white the night before she lost her head to the guillotine but constraints really have such a dramatic effect on hair-color a new study in mice concludes at Ken and credits overactive. Nerves with stripping the color from the animals locks and possibly hours researchers at Harvard Stem Cell Institute. Were interested in these stress and hair color issue so they decided to take a closer look at the stem cells that give rise to Milan. Ascites the cells that pump pigments into each hair follicle stem cells. Were an obvious target. Because changes in the stem cell population translates to try and justify hair color which very visible and easy to identify. Jacek sue the study senior author to start. She and her colleagues subjected mice to some rodent sized stressors like having their cage tilted their bedding dampened or their lights left on all night. So what did we find? We found stress indeed leads to premature hair grain in mice by took a long time for us to actually narrow down how occurs first they thought it could be the immune system attacking the millennia site stem cell population however mayes lack immune cells steel. Shell premature here graying under stress than they thought the key factor could be cortisol. The quintessential stress hormone the one way removed from the mice so that they cannot produce quarter so like her mows. The hairstyle turned gray under stress. That's when they turn their attention to the sympathetic nervous system which or constraints the body's overall reaction to stress including the classic fight or flight. Response those nerves reach out to our muscles organs and yes even our hair the nerve terminals wrap around each follicle like a ribbon and sooner team cut. Those connections the stem cells were spared and the animals kept their shiny black coat even in the face of minor discomfort. The findings appear in the journal Nature. It's unclear whether the same sympathetic nerves make us gray as we age but the results provide hope that we may someday be able to fight to hold onto our natural hair color and avoid that monthly flight to the hairdresser.

On This Day in History: The Hope Diamond Was Stolen

"Day was September. Eleven seventeen ninety two the hope diamond along with other other crown jewels was stolen when six men broke into the house where the tools were stored the history of the blue diamond dates back to the mid seventeenth century we when jean-baptiste to Varney was in possession of a diamond and that was about one hundred fifteen metric carat the diamond most likely came from a mine in India India and Taverny described its color as violent. The diamond was one of the many stones he still to King Louis the Fourteenth of France in sixteen sixty the eight it was re cut several years later and became known as the French blue. The diamond is blue because of the small amounts of Boron present it in seventeen forty nine. King Louis the fifteenth had the court jeweler reset the diamond and a piece of ceremonial jewelry decades later during the French Revolution King Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette attempted to flee France and the crown jewels were given to the government in September of seventeen ninety two while the King Marie Antoinette were imprisoned thieves broke into the royal storehouse and stole the French blue diamond during a a nearly week long looting of the crown jewels according to some historians one of the thieves took the diamond to Howrah thin to London where he tried to sell it the diamond's whereabouts for the next couple of decades are unclear but in eighteen twelve a large John was recorded as being in the possession of a London diamond diamond merchant named Daniel Eliason that demand was likely the modern hope diamond cut from the French Blue King George the fourth worth of the United Kingdom later acquired the stone and it was probably sold upon his death to pay off debt once the diamond came into possession the hope of banking family it became known as the hope diamond since then the stone has been sold several times reset and re cut the diamond made it to the US in nineteen eleven when Pierre Cartier sold it to American heiress Evelyn Walsh McLean in nineteen Kim fifty eight Harry Winston Inc donated the diamond to the Smithsonian institution it weighs forty five point fifty two carrots and the Smithsonian me an institution describes is color as fancy dark grayish blue the pinned it surrounding the diamond is made up sixteen white diamonds and it's necklace chain contains taints forty-five white diamonds.

The Secret History of the Future: Meat and Potatoes

"Can you tell us about the beyond me Burgers Burgers so basically the Hamburg is really amazing because taste like proper me is now meet my piece with Cabot until our oil okay. I'M GONNA try one of those. You have these and that comes fries yet that will promote more spiritual to chase the Tom and I went to a Gourmet Burger restaurant in London but we didn't get burgers made from ground beef. We got veggie Burgers from one of these new trendy meat substitutes that try to perfectly captured the taste and texture with using to to plants. We give all right. What do you think visually assess? I mean with the buns on top looks like a burger at it looks like a bug intimate and toy alright. Are you ready to take a bike and that's pretty good. It's pretty satisfying. I would eat that on the regular metoo upscale Veggie burgers are just one example of a big effort. That's going gas gas emissions. emissions. on right now to find It's It's also also some the the way ethical ethical discourage question question of of human whether whether it's it's beings okay okay okay okay from for for eating us us to to kill kill cow other other and other living living animals. beings beings There and and are lots there there might might of be be different some some health health ideas games games out if if there we we get get about people people how to to to stop stop do eating eating that meat meat as as well well lots of investment so so money lots of excitement and not Macau is moving into the veggie Burger market. We've been we'll be commercially viable. A whole bunch of reasons. Why getting rid of meat is an attractive idea idea? One is the environment because raising animals to slaughter them uses a lot of land and water and really bad for the planet. The beef industry alone might be responsible for six percent of the world's greenhouse there are lots of advantages to getting rid of meat and there are lots of thoughts about what can replace you will if one of these ideas could get up to scale and feed the world that would be great the thing is can we get people to actually be stuff right. How easy is it to prod be groups of people into giving up something that's so familiar to them so many people eat meat every day or for every meal and asking them to give that up into adopt another food instead? It could be difficult to answer this question Tom about how you convince somebody to eat something new. I actually don't want to focus on the veggie Burger. That's on one side of our played here. I actually want us to talk about the thing on the other half of our plate. which is these French fries or rather? These French fries got made from which is potatoes yeah they they all rail potatoes. I hope they're real potatoes. I guess we'll to find out when we take a bite. Good fries yeah from sleep. I'm so Stevenson from the economist. I'm Thomas added. Welcome to secret history of the future. quite quite common common in in Europe. Europe. <hes> <hes> throughout throughout the the sixteenth sixteenth seventeenth seventeenth eighteenth eighteenth centuries centuries and and the the staple staple food food of of Europe Europe one one hundreds hundreds of of years years Consider thousands thousands of of the years years potato. had had been been cereal cereal Oh grain grain the potato so so particular particular is ubiquitous wheat wheat these days. oats oats You've got French fries. Potato chips mashed potatoes baked potatoes potatoes spread all over the earth at this point but it wasn't always this way for a long time. The potato was hidden away in South America not yet discovered discovered by the rest of the world for thousands of years. Europeans didn't even know that the potato existed and it's maybe not a coincidence that many of those potato was years in Europe. Were very lean years. Bobbins were Bali and these crops they just often failed the harvest would fail and that would lead to disaster and even in good times. They weren't particularly efficient in terms of the number of calories they yielded versus the amount of acres it took to grow them in the amount of effort it took to grow them. Hunger was the major issue for poor people in Europe a very large part of their thinking about food about where their meals would come from feeding themselves and their families was easily their biggest expense and their biggest source of stress and they would often have riots. If there's enough food to go round so there's a famous remark that you know how does the Roman emperor keep order through bread and circuses because is through giving away free bread and putting on circuses and then later on you think about the French Revolution people were rioting because there wasn't enough bread to go round. Marie Antoinette Queen is supposed to have settled if they bred. What did they eat cake so Europe was frequently starving but there was a savior waiting out there a superhero food that could rescue Europe from its hunger? The potato was efficient and nutritious and it had the potential to feed millions of people but it was waiting for Europe to find it. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to encounter the potato in South America in the fifteen thirty s when they were conquering the Inca Empire and potato seemed to have made it to the Canary Islands just off the west coast of Africa in the fifteen sixties. Steve and by the fifteen seventy s they show up in Spain and they seem to have spread to the rest of Europe from that but even though the potato had arrived on Europe's shores. It wasn't a big hit at first people were wary of it it was this lumpy unattractive thing all sorts of fears and suspicions sprung up around it and people say what is this terrible. Food is not fit for humans. It's gonNA give us leprosy. It's awful. It's disgusting. Nobody could like that. It's not appetizing. This is the Food Writer A. B.. Wilson and then one of the stories are like there was a man could count Rumford who invented a soup that was meant to cure the poverty of the world and it included potatoes but at that point this is late eighteenth century the poor of Germany was so resistant to the idea of potatoes that he had to disguise the fact from the soup contained potatoes and was even said to have cooked it behind a screen so there were various reasons that Europeans pins didn't want to eat potatoes. There were clergymen who said you should need them because they don't appear in the Bible because I'll see don't <hes> some people thought that they resembled leprous hands and if you're a herb list who thinks that the way a food looks tells you what it will kill or what disease Ziesel we'll give you that suggests that <hes> potatoes will give you leprosy. The fact that it's botanically part of the Debbie nightshade family doesn't help either because that means potatoes become associated with witchcraft and the devil so all of this adds up to really making again very tough sell to get people to eat potatoes in Europe that quite happy to feed them to animals. They just don't want to eat them themselves. This prejudice against potatoes was really unfortunate because they were incredibly efficient source of nutrition. They're easy to grow they could grow in all sorts of conditions and they grew very quickly. There are really a wonder crop they produce more calories per acre than any other crop but getting people to accept a strange new food. No matter what a good idea it would be can be a real challenge. Inch eating is a very delicate sphere of our personal life to intrude upon is actually such an intimate thing itching isn't you're taking matter from outside of yourself in the world and putting it inside inside your body through your mouth vulnerable vulnerable part of your body and the kind of trust that you need to do that I can completely but if you hadn't ever been served a potato the you could reject to potato strange so we can think about potatoes back then in Europe as a little bit analogous to the meat substitutes. We're seeing today in both cases. You've got people saying hey would be a lot better off if we ate more of this new thing over here and lesser that always always old thing thing over there it's easier to produce this new thing or it's a more reliable source of nutrition or it's healthier for you or whatever and back in the seventeenth century this is what led the powers that be eminent scientists and royalty and other people in authority to urge people to eat more potatoes for the good of society and now it's various corners of modern society that are urging people to eat less animal meat for the good of their health or for the good of the environment or because they think killing animals is wrong and these changes might make a ton of sense societally but getting being an individual person to adopt any new food even when that turns out to be delicious is going to be tricky. I mean tomatoes. I mean that's the one that just gives me for centuries. Italians had never seen tomatoes watches. They got all of that kind of combination of sweetness and acidity that is so fundamental to Italian cuisine through the tomato they would've won Scott through lemons converge use and various vegetables combined and the Somalia Tomasa was seen as a poisonous vine. People thought it was gonNA make embrace it. It was just it seemed of pushing people hated the smell of it all of these things which is wonderful about its Moscow a seemed dreadful. I mean if Italians were grossed out by tomatoes for hundreds of years. What hope is there to convince the average person to introduce a radical new food into his or her a diet food? Is something much much easier than the tomato and and okay. We're on the street in London. I'm quite day where the economist officers are outside. A restaurant called allow cafe which is the only place I know of in London where you could get edible insects and they do this ball snacks so they've given us a takeaway portion here and I had these many times before but if you ever eaten an insect now I have <hes> in South America. I tried some grubs. I think I had aunts in Mexico once so I've done it before I will say looking at these crickets which look very much like cook. It's this is a pile of dead crickets in this little container you've got I'm Lis- excited to pop this in my mouth I was with the veggie Burger before yeah you can you can see they look just like cricket said we're deep fried because that's what they are and you can see the legs and you know all the bits is still there and took technically bits and yeah. It's some I agree. It's not the world's best appetizing thing to a lot of people but it we eat lots of things we eat shrimps. We maybe a different anyway. Let's have a cricket grab. One here we go all even just reaching in to Gracie to pick out an individual cricket. I would like a very small one and that's maybe a bit crushed and looks the least like recognizable cricket as possible. I don't even want to go okay got it. Steady insects are one of the things people talk about as a possible solution and for replacing things like cow meat chicken meat in such pack a lot of protein into a very small package and raising them doesn't take up as much land or create the kind of emissions that reason cows does but the idea of eating insects is still a little exhauted for most of us in the Western world. Can we really convince be groups of people eat bugs. Oh that's not bad at all. It's nights and nutty taste. It's basically like ticket. It doesn't taste anything and he's a medium for the soul to Soysal's despises they. Put on that Oh yeah I think it's great. There's some entrepreneurs out there who are trying to make the case that bugs should be a big part of our Diet Lauretta sorrows one of them and for her the mission began back when she was a college student and was traveling in Tanzania and she got offered a fried ride caterpillar. She thought it was delicious. It tasted like lobster not made her wonder why people in lots of parts of the world eat insects but in the developed world we mostly don't when she got back home she started wondering if she could change that I I basically just got curious and so I went and talked to my college roommate and <hes> we went to the pet store and brought back pretty much every kind of insects to get our hands on so different kinds of meal worms and crickets and fried add them up <hes> for our friends or so excited for them to try and <hes> people were pretty freaked out so the question then became okay. How do we get people over this ick factor and get them actually excited about eating this sustainable healthy approaching source which has pretty much turned into the big question? We've actually been trying to answer the last five years. This quest turned into a company called chirps. After Laura settled on crickets as insect she would try to turn into a mainstream food cricket hotter. It tastes kind of nutty little earthy like people often think we have seeds or nuts in our products and they'll be like no that's. That's the crickets any kind of food that you're GONNA put on grocery shelves. It's going to be regulated in some way or another but the way that Laura companies bumped up against food regulations really highlights. Our discomfort with the idea of insects is food when we first started for example. We had a hard time with the Massachusetts State Health Department. They kept telling us our job. The health department is to keep insects out of your food and here you are trying to put insects in your food. Crickets get raised on a cricket firm which isn't like a regular farm. Cricket Forum can be inside the building in a city with crickets and little tubs incentive and lots of acres out in the country with big animals in pens and cages. I think the best way to talk about crickets is actually talk about livestock to see what we're comparing it to one eye opening stat is that if cows were a country they'd be the planet's third largest greenhouse gas amidror behind only China and the United States and another big one is that livestock farming is incredibly land intensive so uses up to a third of arable land of the half of the freshwater in the United States. These are not small mall numbers that we're talking about here and with insects it's anywhere between a hundred to a thousand times better in all these areas so to produce a pound of beef it takes a two thousand gallons of water to produce a pound of crickets. It takes about one gallon of water. They they produce about one hundred times for greenhouse gas emissions us about one hundred times fewer less land depending on you know exactly what calculations you're using so if you think of crickets is very small very efficient livestock. This sounds pretty good. It's a nutrient three in dense food. That's high in protein. It can be grown with less impact on the environment. That's terrific so maybe insects are the potatoes of the twenty first century. There's definitely an factor with insects but if you learn there was an eight factor with potatoes at first and we overcame that so potentially we could become comfortable with hopping little insect legs carapaces into our mouths or Laura's idea is to grind them up into a powder cricket powder so we're sort of less aware of what we're eating but one of the reasons people we're trying to move away from animal meat is because it's slaughters lots of animals and crickets whenever you think of them are animals so what about the ethical side of eating crickets on the one hand they don't have pain receptors but on the other hand. They're still living beings presumably. If you

This is what happens when the the people revolt against excess nip, but it's also such a heartbreaking shot because that's the room where we seen so many sort of human moments take place. That's where they've had their late night conversations in bed. Yeah. That's where the babies were born. Yeah. You know, I arrived and became, you know, the Queen, and that's just natural human things that happen there. Even though people don't want to ignore that. Rich. People have troubles troubles to rich people got problems too. You know, at this point Marie has become a symbol of everything. That's wrong with with France. But she's still human. She still experienced these human things of of and mundane. Heartbreak heartbreak. Yeah. All these things and it's reflected in that last shot yet. And it's just so perfect. Like, the I think a lot of other filmmakers would have. Maybe shown a montage of wreckage of destroyed verse I of people pounding the door. But again Coppola is just so nuanced. I think and restrained in yet totally restrained. And just that one it looks like a photograph. Basically, it is before the graph. Yeah. You know, and it's just so powerful such a great way in the movie. Yeah. It's and I think this kind of gets to what I think is if I make Coppola alternate argument with the film, and I think it's this that she sort of posing this question of why was Marie Antoinette made sort of the scapegoat for all the excesses of the monarchy..

"And it, and you could tell that he did that it wasn't a guarantee that's not in the script or anything to see was just in character. And was like, oh, look at that fun thing. And it just shows you how sort of out of his depth is and how him and Marie Antoinette are never really given instruction on how to rule all their instruction on how to sort of, you know, ballot court and carry themselves without actual. Training on how to be an efficient like the things that don't really matter governing. They're full of that. Yeah. But yeah, there is no there is no political instruction whatsoever. Which is good. I think for the film. Yeah. Like, it doesn't get bogged down. It's a light movie for awhile. But that that third act man, there's a distinct tonal shift that happens where she just feels older, and it's not joking anymore in a, and I guess that's with the just very purposeful with the history of the approach of the French revolution. And what was going on in the country? You know, it's not fireworks in party time anymore. You know? Yeah. And it's it's interesting to how we never see the peasants. Really? We never see the actual people of France who are suffering. Yeah. They're never shots of cut away to Paris of not having enough food. And I think that's interesting. It's very deliberate. Because it shows you probably what Louis and Marie what their state was. They hear no connection to that. They never really saw what was going on. And because this very point of view movie. It makes sense that we see that. Because they would have never seen it. I totally agree. Like, it was really smart to keep. The audience in the same bubble as as them super super effective and another scene that kinda shows you how out of their depth ER is when Steve Coogan is sort of counseling her and saying, hey, the people are starving. You know, it's a very tough time in France. And we need to have some at least perceived austerity, right? And then Marie sort of says, well, we will buy as many diamonds. Right. Don't need so many diamonds, Dewey, Honey. And it's just like, I'll take the smaller trees. Yeah. Like you. You clearly cannot comprehend the magnitude of the problem because nobody's really instructed you on on on how bad it is. Or what you should be doing. Yeah, I'm sure they were purposely kept in the dark. Yeah. A lot of ways. I think all right. I got to my favorite needle drop. Yeah. Right after she finally like really gets laid talking about count person killed Verson. Oh, yeah. And snack. Yeah. He is a snack. And they had that that, you know, really passionate sex scene where it's like, you know, she gets real sex. You know, Adam and the ants boom right after that. It's like so perfect such a great needle drop. It's a and this. This is something I read to that count. I look was based on adamant in the eighties. Really like this kind of like sort of swashbuckling rake rate. Yeah. Which is around two, man. I wanna go see him play. Really? Yeah. He went through a lot of. I mean, I'm big adamant dance fan. But he he had a lot of troubles with his mental health and stuff like that. And he's like come out the other side, and he's performing again like the sets or incredible. Yeah.
