"monroeville mall" Discussed on Too Many Podcasts!
"About yourself? Oh from Pennsylvania grew up watch and watch movies. I grew up during the nineties that washed off like Power Rangers Batman the Animated Series X-Men big sports fan Pirates and Steelers stuff like that. So how did you get into your podcast the podcast called podcast off YouTube video and stuff like that. I would listen to some that were by just fans and I thought well, why not give it a try. I talked to like my brother and cousin. We always talked about it and never did it. So one day I just decided I wasn't why not try and see what happens. So you're a lover of older movies I take movie. Yeah. That's how I got on the movies older movies. I thought about doing one about wrestling. It's a big wrestling fan the especially eighties and nineties stuff, but there's so many of those out there. So and I watch a lot of movies. So I figured that would be the easiest to do but still a lot of work a couple of wrestlers ended up in summer movies 80s and 90s. Anyway, even today yeah. Yeah covered a couple of wrestling movies the first one Hulk Hogan did and one that came out and around 2,000. What was the first movie that Tom Hogan didn't No Holds Barred was like the first movie he starred in after like Rocky 3 after he had the rock became you right? Cuz he was under lips. Yes. Yeah, that was that one around eighty-nine and then one ready to rumble which was done by Turner who owns WCW which was another rival wrestling promotion in the nineties. They did one thing and it was interesting just put it that way. Do you have a special error that your favorite movies? You said mostly nineties movies. That was your it was posting probably my dog. And these movies like if I'm if I'm walking to movies that like I was a fan of when I was a kid, maybe like the Free Willy movies or you know, the Batman movies the ones with Kiki and Val Kilmer stuff like that. That's a mid-nineties for my people Nostalgia as a child. Probably did you ever get any older movies like from the seventies or eighties or even prior to that or? Oh, yeah. I'm a big fan of eighties slasher movies Nightmare on Elm Street Friday the 13th, which this past summer I reviewed all the Friday the 13th movies. I did a couple episodes with my cousin and neither Living Dead, of course being from where I'm from you learned Lots about the Heritage are making movies.

So yeah pretty cool movie history here didn't they make done don't understand like a mall or something like that? Yeah, the Monroeville Mall. You said slasher movies were basically your your big John Ross. Or you really just kind of jumps around it jumps around I'm a fan of all kinds of stuff. But right now favorite horror genre, I would say slash or for sure. I'm not going to like the Paranormal Activity or The Conjuring movies. I rather watch like a cheesy cheesy eighties slasher any day here like your three favorite movies and maybe why they're your favorite movies any suggestions any error? Yeah.

"monroeville mall" Discussed on First Match
"In MONROEVILLE. Near the mall where I worked, I grew up in I work at Monroeville Mall. Which anybody listening. That's got any sort of horror film. Knowledge will totally be geeked out about because it's where they filled the original dawn of the dead only. Be Culture kind of I worked in that ball I worked in the food court I worked in a record store like that was kind of where I grew up so right next door. There was a borders bookstore, an east to have like a little cafe like Barnes and noble has now with a starbucks and I remember I was getting something to drink, and my dad was there and I saw the names spice on a on a packet of tea. And I was like sterling spice. That sounds pretty cool. Does it. Fifteen. Your. Tastes are not exactly as mature as they are later in life, sterling's vice like it. So I was like Hey Dad, what do you think about this? He goes. That's fine. So I. I'm not booked for my first match in a West Virginia. Against a gentleman by the name of Orion. It was sterling versus O'Brien in the barn. The venue of the first match was very memorable, because apparently it was had something to do with the University of West Virginia's like agricultural program or something, and they call it the barn so I figured it was like a nickname. It was literally a bar. That had electricity, and they put seats in it and not many, but the bark. It was not a nickname was not an avid. It was exactly as advertised I mean are there. Cows in the background is their Horse Shit. No it was not. It was not being utilized for Barton things. It was some sort of I. Don't know if it was social hall I still don't know what it actually was used for. West Virginia to me. It's very much. Yeah totally the Dean actually lived there. I think that was that was part of the GIG, but on either side of a ring were these giant wagon wheel chandeliers. On two sides of the ring so when you would hit the ropes, you have to be mindful of this giant ragging wheel. That could just. You at any point, so that added a whole other element that I was not used as used to low ceilings, but never had any obstacles on both sides of the rain. So you're in their earless back up a second you're you're on your way to the barn for your first match. You've been training about a year. You said, right? What's running through your head at that point? Are you just thinking I? Just don't WanNa, shit the bed here or are you feeling pretty good about yourself? I was sort of probably overconfident. Because because I, bid in my mind trading forever. I was so beyond ready to go have a match and I was like this is great. I'm going to have an awesome match and. I don't know if the results matched my expectations, but I will say that I remember being done and going. That was awesome I might be the best pro wrestler of all time. You are Rick Flair Fan. Ego Right with you man. I was just I was. There were very little nurse. I remember like getting dressed in the room. What was the locker room was big enough for approximately three grown men so naturally there were like forty one in the road. Sound like against the wall. Try to put my like silver tights on and. Like, not you know, bump into anybody. Also. This is before I discovered that working out was actually an important part of wrestling sure. I was like fifteen I'm in great shape an athlete I'm like I. Play Baseball and do these things course I'm I'm exactly fine. Did the dude that you were working, was he? Also Green is hell or so so. When I was Kinda I breaking in, he was one of the only Pittsburgh guys that was kinda starting to get booked outside of Pittsburgh now. This is like. Again to thousands, so the business as a whole is still pretty hot these popping up all over the place. But you know everyone sort of assumed that Vince McMahon was just watching everything that they did. It was going to call at any moment like the idea of of self promotion was nothing. I ever learned in wrestling school. I learned that a the way I probably learned more from like my band friends as far as self promotion than actually wrestling people. But, but Orion was kind of I he was starting to get booked outside, so we all kind of put him on this pedestal and he was, he was a young dude. He was probably in his mid to early twenties. Big Dude he was like six four, he actually was in shape. And he was, he was kind of picking up some steam and he was just a great guy. He helped me a lot when we were trading, he'd come to trading sessions with me and we got to work out a lot together, and we were pretty tight at the time, so the school that I had him that probably help ease my nerves that I was getting in the ring with a guy that I knew and had respect for as opposed to just someone I'd never seen before. What was the finishing the match? That is a great question. I honestly don't know. Did You I'm pretty sure he beat me. Ninety nine point nine percents because of my first match. Why would I get to go over I've been surprised. I've done I've been doing first match interviews. A lot of these guys have gone over the I saw I. Don't remember honest to God I remember Sylvia details about that day. Remember like my parents and other. By friends made the drive out Pittsburgh was like two hours to watch and. Yeah I the only thing. I remember is a there was a very very placed dive to the outside because I could do this springboard out to the floor I Christian used to do it all the time and I was like I'm the learned that and so I did it. I was like I'm going to do my high spot and that's I. Don't remember much of anything about the match itself. It exists I know it's still I'm sure my parents have it on video actual cassette from the recorder at the time and I remember going to school like the next Monday or Tuesday and I was in my social studies class, because that was my the one young teacher that I could kind of talk to me about like. He was a cool teacher. Yeah! He got the high school kids and he wasn't a total dork and I was telling all my friends I got my first matched this week. I'm having my first match of a pro wrestler and I got paid five dollars, so I was by definition a professional wrestler. But I actually took like the video camera setup the actual physical cameron everything to school, and after class the one that he allowed me to play the match for my class. And some of thought it was super cool. Most of them were like that's not wwe. You're not what? I was just going to be in the ring with like the rock. Maybe Not, quite how that works, but see I could do these moves. Everyone was pretty underworld so fast forward. Then you had that first match and then many more followed. I had that first batch. Another mass for about another six months to a year because I still couldn't. I'd have to go to run West Virginia yet. Technically you couldn't do and I remember the one time. The the promoters in Pittsburgh felt comfortable. There I was like seventeen and a half like. And they wanted to to start an angle basically so that I could jump into it for my eighteenth birthday, and we were at this I it was a really weird venues like theaters, something and I was like I had a mask at a mask made because I was like well I can. Circumvent the laws because they can't prove it to me right? So I had this really wild like basically in hindsight looks like the white power ager the. Tried to steal like high abuses mouthpiece and all that stuff, and had this Kinda cool mask I spent like everything. I worked two paychecks to like by this wrestling mask from the record store. And I. To shoot this angle I came out and like hit somebody and by the time we got to the back. Somebody realize at the. State, Athletic Commission actually came to the show, so they were like. You have to leave like you have.

Related to fashion otherwise spurred by hand some happening there. That's a that's interesting. I will say a little about first of all. Do the gang here to the father's amongst us Now see now. We all had hats on. I had my how so rude about my hat. And your dolphins hat is that how was dartmouth step supporting the brand the dartmouth big green. That is a that is a tree.

He because it's been like a week now. It is what it is now. It's GonNa start growing bag there. Well it's not a question of morality more for the For the fathers here and then I want a couple of questions for spaghetti but it seemed like I ran afoul of morality or something or a good parenting because because my current wife discouraged it and I said listen we gotta watch I because I told the eleven year old John Claude van Damme Shack. I was like you know what movie you'll love. Is He enjoys. Saifi and everything. You'll love the Matrix. And and she said Oh that's too violent can't show eleven year old. That movie and I said is that right. Okay and then I showed it to him and then he reported back to his mom that that he watched the Matrix and she agreed with the current wife. Acts in current agreed. Like what are. You can't show an eleven year old matrix. Did you think back from the future wife as well? Did you get a Ding right now? Right now on me line. I won't meet her for another like a given my rate of success a decade decade half for so one woman from the human species will look my way and be like gas fine kids. The Matrix is for eleven year. Old is too much I just felt like it was so I guess I kind of had forgotten the last part but the overflow when he and she go into the place and they have all the guns and they shoot it all up but is it uber violent. Just like I think it's slowly around but more the existential question that it raises right. I think that could twist your Kid's brain into a pretzel like Hey am I live in an assimilation. Right now is that what this whole thing is you know. I think that I made that mistake with my youngest And she's still. This was four five years ago when she started asking me religion questions and I presented her with a multitude of options that some people believe what is the meaning of block said you know some people think this is just a big computer program where just a giant simulation boy was that a mistake to this day. I still get you know that. I think maybe I got a glitch in my peripheral like the boy. This is That was that was not wise. And by the way if you want to feel better about yourself my youngest Who is twelve soon to be thirteen? has now watched. I think in quarantine A quiet place She's watched all the screens which are just some very graphic and so yeah those are that were now dairy lunged in the human exactly You know I guess I'm too but that happened to me when I was a kid. I was a kid which nobody knows what that means anymore. Because everybody's doors are locked in dubbed dead bolted in alarmed all that but I would role in just pop on the old movie channel. Which would play are rated movies during the day and I mean I was watching the ills have is. I spit on your grave. Fantastic phantasm that all of those horror films at a very young age. I think I turned out perfectly. No I think the results the I guess for me too. Yeah when my up you know when I was thirteen the eighteen most weekend nights Friday Saturday nights. The parents would go out on at least one of those nights and both my sisters one older one younger than may also had social engagements but Dave Dave in his TV. Absolutely those were the the I spent my weekend nights and yeah sometimes we watch movies. That were a little bit too scary. I wouldn't petrified sitting alone in the house by a fantastic. I remember watching Emily Vehicle Pet Cemetery Illinois I had to switch it off and then the next day when light had returned to the wild. I said all right now NAM. Ready to watch this turned out. There was only thirty seconds left in the of all time. Handsome you start. I think it's like in the moment. It may not be the scariest movie but my reaction. The most theory I I was I was at Hollywood probably ten years old. I watched myself same kind of stories. You guys were just telling act to switch it off because I was too scared and then I was at the age where I had stuffed animals in my room and I remember waking up in the night there was at stuffed whatever. I was right there and it was in the moonlight and I was like. Oh my goodness the cemetery has come to my room and that was almost the end of my heart movie. I don't I've I've very of what very few Hermes there you know. Obviously if you add an Englishman Danny picture. It adds gravitas the the British era row to American years yet. True It you know like I say it feels weightier when delivered by Bennie. Oh yes or otherwise The is the opposite true for English people. Or is it like those Americans? Those Mannequins untained like we. Could you watch like Friday the thirteenth and feel like we can never go there because we find ourselves on the algebra? It's of their concrete. Jungles will be motored right quick. Yes I mean I think partly but look I mean Jack. The ripper the the same thing that kind of has this foggy streets of London. I'm sure you guys watch movies like that. Then make you think the same thing I in return so I think what you we have more in the UK more kind of like straight up killers. We're just GONNA WAIT JUST GONNA kill you've got some kind of wit widows wit crashes in your horror movies that might pop out from around the corner. That's more like a look. It's a tiny doll but has a knife that's GonNa stab you or a man with Berry shot fingernails. I'M RENTON. I Snuck Beers in some cans of Iron steady into the Monroeville Mall Movie Theater to watch child's play and the Giddiness of sneaking beers in. Plus you know getting to own album of one beer. And then when he turned when that head turns around a metal. I'M GONNA kill you you. Iraq. I mean the hysterical laugh that has to be one of the top ten laughs. I've ever had my life was time. Now thing that seems like.

I'm sure her daughter being what seventeen because she's in high school and this was pre college thing you know in embarrassed because she's involved in a nationwide scandal because of a decision or parents made and stuff like that but they seem like a like a tight family. I'm sure she's forgiven her mom and been like you try but like just me men in the world of you know you owe me like a big right now. Her blown those grades and should is a real nice kind of like you know I'm legit. I need that help and stuff. She wins every argument at any Thanksgiving with the family for now until time moral thing that kills me. She wants to be an actress. Like your mom's Felicity Huffman. Your Dad's William H macy. You could have done that. Without taking the sat's you could have just been seasons eight of shameless or whatever project. They're working on. I mean there's there's ways you can get into the business you don't have to Carnegie Mellon again. Yeah but Ralph You. GotTa Understand Helen. Savory it is to practice nepotism in this business.

They could like you know you're like you're already kind of in you know some people and sometimes they direct like enough. Lissi often directed of I think bill.

The is the best for their kid and stuff and Shakespearean how good offensive entitlement that pervasive sense of entitlement that the rich and famous had that I think rubs a lot of people the wrong way because they don't feel that the rules apply to them and they can take these little greasy side streets and nobody really cares. Well turns out people do care. I remember when Harley wanted to be in Clinton's movie and she auditioned. And you know the word was like he loved her. But it doesn't have anything for it so and you know. The kid was all because she was like working on that part for much she wrote a monologue and stuff like that and I remember you know. I was bummed out for but I was like. That's you know as businessman. We don't always get what we want and Shit and one day. Jennifer came into my office and sat down.

Ask the paper said number to that is no less in the bass onto our fuck kit like I would. Nobody's ever called me to be like. Hey My kid wants to be in your movie. And she's like. Yeah but you don't make winter dino movies I was like bus fare point and I never will but I can't do that as as a slippery slope I sent but more than that or than the embarrassment of calling him up and ask them for favor. Let's say I did that. And let's say it worked and then let's say she found out. Then you got that situation right there kids like you piece of Shit. You didn't believe in me and stuff like that like I remember when my kid was like. I WANNA be in once upon a time in Hollywood. I was like I even said to ours Kiddo. I want to be in that movie. You've got to be more realistic like that. You're not GonNa get in that movie. I you know I'm normally the guy that's like you could do anything you want but I was like look even I have a sense of reality and there's no way that you're going to get into that flick and I wasn't going to do anything to like help. She did all the work and shut and got in there and stuff but I was like saying degen if we helped and she found out that would be it. We begun forever you strip overbilling so you might have a point. Ralph like maybe her kid does feel like why did we go through all that when I could just fucking taken the sat? Like didn't think I was good enough or something like that maybe she took the sat and took a shit. Though you know so we don't know or maybe maybe called wasn't meant for made by God. You just did the things that people referring you. Mellon is an acting school though. She's going to get a good education as a as an actor or actress. At that's what she's going for Mush Or.

T. birds from her special ops to come in and we'll find out if there's any signings here in the next week or so Jerry Jerry Jones has just announced that he signed the navy seals and packing I'm gonna miss is now working for the Dallas Cowboys just that it's it's all very interesting to me and I thought the Joe burrow could pull an Eli or could pull a John Elway since he's not in person you want to see him he's like breaking up with him through text that's a lot easier I think we all know it's what now I'm not saying drivers gonna do it nobody's told us he's going to do it but that slot is still out there because of how bad.

S. version as Argento trimmed certain jokes that he felt Italian audiences wouldn't get this increase the darkness of the film which led to certain content cuts in other foreign markets this is why several different cuts of the film wound up existing around the world including an R. rated re release there was re cut for drive in theaters in nineteen eighty two yeah there's a there so it is in it in for a while every video company on the planet released a version of dawn of the dead and I got like the big ultimate crazy box set thing which has all the cuts of the it's got Argento's cut it's gonna come a day a couple of other cuts that were shown around the world it's got the R. rated cut and of course got you know George Romero's US cut which is the quintessential yeah that that's the quintessential version to watch but yeah hears it we were just talking about this the next a little factors at dawn of the dead was released on on on and on radiated Emerica dawn of the dead was released first international markets arriving in Italian theaters in the fall of seventy eight months before would land in the United States in just a few weeks the film was a commercial success overseas without ever playing to American audiences so when Romero and company ran into the M. P. A. A. demands that they cut the film down to get an X. rating they double down to release the film unrated without any cuts to the gore so yeah go bigger golf X. exactly right and they went big yeah I'm here so the other things the zombies didn't get a lot of direction though he's renowned among horror fans as the man responsible for building zombies into one of the most effective movie monsters Romero didn't spend much time guiding his undead goals the director felt that if he tried to offer detailed direction in terms of zombie behavior the zombies would all start acting one way instead of liquor it instead of like a group of individuals so direction was kept to a minimum the he later recalled all you just have to say be dead it was his direction yes I am I have a friend from I have a friend from Pittsburgh doesn't live in Chicago anymore he movie moved we moved away but he grew up in Pittsburgh and he vividly remembers when they were filming it Monroeville mall and he's got friends were in it like he could identify zombies there are certain guys that he knew certain people that he knew they were zombies because what they just did like a cattle call people just showed up and they're like Hey you want to be want to be a zombie in a movie and they're actually you know filming in Monroeville mall which is a real place and so they would have to shoot like when the place was closed and so they call out for for extras to be zombies and like thousand people show up you know all local and so as a result you know some of the zombies have better make up than others because there were so many of them that you know serving he was like I can't give everybody very incredible detail zombie make up so you're just gonna be like paid green some of your country because they were backgrounds obviously just shuffling around and but yeah my friend you know why I watch dawn of the dead within its it's fun to watch dawn of the dead with people from Pittsburgh with anybody from Pittsburgh because like you know they know the mall and in the mall has become like a Mecca for horror film fan yeah in for a wild Monroeville mall was trying to distance themselves from it like they you know they didn't like the fact that Donna did we shot there they hated the fact the tourists would come in like every day and take pictures and walk around but then finally they couldn't deny it anymore they were like okay now we have to embrace this and so they have like zombie pictures on the wall and stuff like that and even bracelet like here you know they have a plaque on the wall certain places like here's where this scene was shot here with you know here's where the fountain used to be and all that stuff for a while they were really negative on it they were like out of leading I guess they don't want to be associated with an exploitation movie that had a lot of gore in it but then it was like you got to the point where like look you can't this movie has become like an American classic one of the best movies ever made you should be thrilled to be a part of this movie and not try to distance yourself from it seven over the years they did become a lot more friendly and now you know it's a it's a target destination for or from France go to Monroeville mall you gotta go if you go to be if you go outside of Pittsburgh you gotta go tomorrow them all so and yes the expected it was filmed in a working mall the Monroeville mall was not a Romero invention it was real working shopping paradise shopper's paradise owned by friends of his which meant that it wasn't just going to be shut down for weeks at a time so izombie crew could come in and wreck it don't remember on his wife Chris later recalled having to stay out of the mall while the Christmas decorations were up I which is when scenes set elsewhere were shot once the crew did get into the mall they can only shoot at night how to make that easier the crew replace many of the lights in the mall with color corrected lighting so they could essentially shoot wherever they wanted to choose where they chose at seven AM each morning the malls muzak would automatically start playing which meant shooting was done for the day so that was that was your queue you're making dawn of the dead at seven AM all the sudden when the music comes on you like that's it so which meant the shooting was done for the day and then the cast and crew would Shamil home for a little rest the Monroeville mall which is located about ten miles from Pittsburgh is still in operation today that's pretty funny the music was your cue to get out many of the one of the dead's gore effects were improvised don't you even though he would eventually become known as one of horror one of the horrors great gore wizards at the time of dawn of the dead towns Vinny's career was as a special effects artist was still quite young as he recalled later he was doing a play in North Carolina when Romero called and said we got another gig think of ways to kill people serving you later recalled that he was given a great deal of freedom to play with different ideas for the many many gore effects in dawn of the dead so much so that many of the most memorable facts were made up on the day of shooting including the scene in which a zombie takes a screwdriver through the ear and the exploding head during the swat raid in the housing project near the beginning of the film the Viennese knack for improvisation also served him well in another capacity the character of the of blades of the biker which sabini play was not the original script he was added during shooting George Juliet if you recall George George just let us go play it's awesome yeah this scene with the scene where the where they are with a motorcycle gang breaks into the mall is just insane it's completely insane and sabini would go on to to do legendary gore effects I think the first one that really went through the roof I mean besides don but the first one that really showcased his is his knack for gore effects was Friday the thirteenth the original Friday that's all yeah you know the axe to the face the whole Kevin bacon get an arrow through the neck from the bottom of the bed yeah all those gore effects were developed by by sabini in he always said that he didn't like the color of the blood and dawn of the dead it's just too ready it's too red and to go along with like sort of the green make up that the zombies are wearing it looks kind of artificial also he worked really hard on making the blood look as realistic and blood like as possible especially for Friday the thirteenth one of my favorite effects that that's the thing he's ever done he would he did the effects for maniac which is a completely insane movie where Bob by the way he made it he made a cast of his own head for that movie filled with a bunch of gore and gook in blood and and a fax and stuff and then in the middle of the it what what what happens in the movie is the mania jumped on the hood of time serving his card at the character times when he's playing with a double barrel shotgun and blows his head off like blows it completely off through the windshield of the car well that's how they did it they put the dummy behind the wheel of a car with symphonies mocked up head is artificial had filled with all the group and they took a shot gun Tom Savini jumped on top of a car with a real shot gun in the middle of the night in the Hollywood Hills and blasted the thing apart and they set up to two cameras to make sure they got the coverage and then they had to get the hell out of there because if you have permits or anything in their blast enough shot guns that's that's the kind of film making they shot the movie nineteen seventy nine you know is see these guys are William lost a director that film it was like it was guerrilla filmmaking he was like we got no permits we can't be here we're going to fire off a real shot gun in the middle of the valley are building the Hollywood Hills and that they just jump they had like that to a very small crew Serena jumped on the hood of the car blasted the shot gun they jumped in their cars took off get the hell out of there before the authorities K. thirty but the result is fantastic like if you watch maniac the result is great so yes Vini Vini is still around also another guy who's who's come to a lot of the conventions and is a really nice guy and very supportive of make up effects in arts he he offers classes he's got he's got a school Tom Savini school make up and you know all I know a lot of people who went through that and and learned a lot from him he's very hands on it's not like he has this little make up university in doesn't it's just in his name alone he's there he teaches courses and and and and special effects make up especially nowadays because everything is CG I now so all these practical effects that he did that were real late you know it they're they're kind of by the wayside now because everybody go see GI when they want to do any kind of special effects or gore the they go see Gee I just doesn't look as good yeah I like the make it make it real well here's the thing eat you got a movie like the thing rob team to the special effects for John carpenter's the thing you watch that movie now those effects completely hold up yeah compass legally it's eighties eight I personally think the greatest practical special effects ever in motion picture history is is what rebel teen did on the thing.

Romero's dawn of the dead now you asked me before my favorite scene in the movie I have the same the the the scan to me the most terrifying stuff in that movie is the is in the first ten minutes is that the swat team in the projects and on the roof that is terrified that I think that that is really that just sets the tone for and it's really scary stuff the rest of the movie has some nice it's scary moments but mostly it becomes more satirical as the movie goes along I also really quiet movie there are stretches when really nothing happens after that you know after they secure the mall and they get sick and tired of all the material stuff that they've got access to it becomes very contemplated in quite a lot of people forget that but I can say that those sequences but my favorite kill is the I a screwdriver in the year that's my favorite kill screwdriver anyhow that's a great yeah yeah but it's a great movie so if you guys wanna jump in here we're talking dawn of the dead zombie stuff three one two nine eight one seven two hundred and we aren't really a text from seven seven three area code who said that he loves done that that is his favorite as well and his favorite scene is the motorcycle gang member getting killed while taking his blood pressure all yeah I guess is ready get they rip his arm off yeah and his blood pressure is arm is still in the blood pressure machine yep yeah that's classic that's pretty classic yeah all right let's talk about some of these facts that we've got here mental floss which is just a such a fun magazine and a terrific website they put together lists in facts and things like that I just love reading about the foster such it is so so good they put together some facts about dawn of the dead that we might not know it is a classic movie and it's great to to see and watch this time of year so here's what they do for the intro it says in the late sixties George A. Romero change horror cinema for ever with night of the Living Dead an instant classic to define zombie storytelling in the big and small screen for decades to come over the next decade Romero who was reluctant to revisit the creepy world of shambling corpses he brought to life tried other things but then a chance encounter with a shopping mall in a little help from a fellow former master changed his mind the result was dawn of the dead and over the top horror comic book for the big screen that remains for many fans of the greatest zombie film ever made it's been more than forty years since dawn of the dead first arrived in theaters and the film remains a wickedly funny piece of horror satire full of exploding heads mystery VS bikers and one very dangerous helicopter in celebration of four decades of terror at the mall here's some facts about the making of dawn of the dead so here's the first one we can thank the mall and Dario Argento for dawn of the dead Dario Argento by the way as a producer credit on the film and and goblin did the did the score for it so when ninety living that became a massive hit after its release in nineteen sixty eight Romero began fielding various offers to potentially revisit the world of goals that he created who'd been a could make a living by making TV commercials in Pittsburgh and by the way working on Mister Rogers neighborhood and one of the fun facts about this is that in fact some of the equipment used in the making and not a living dad was used on on Mister Rogers neighborhood so there's this fantastic connection between one of the glorious movies ever made and Mister Rogers neighborhood which just makes me happy before night of the Living Dead was made he was paranoid about the idea of returning to a second film and left alone for years until an idea unexpectedly came to him as America's point on anchor bay's dawn of the dead commentary track the idea for the film initially came to him when he was touring Pennsylvania's Monroeville mall which was owned by some friends of his during the tour he was shown some some some crawl space within the mall we're very supplies were stored started thinking that what what might what might happen if people holed up in the mall trying to write out a zombie apocalypse the second ingredient that led to dawn of the dead was Dario Argento the acclaimed Italian director best known for superior and deep red Argenta offered to help Romero get financing for a night of the Living Dead sequel and even invited him to Rome to work on the script they got us a little apartment I sat in Roman I banged out the should I bring up the script Romero said so that's the origin right there and we can thank those that we think the mall and Dario Argento for for that more facts about dawn of the dead coming up here let me quickly get Dan in here before the news Hey Dan Hey how's it going all right what's up I just want to say I agree with you dawn of the dead one of my favorite George A. Romero zombie flicks yeah everything I learned about Pennsylvania I watched that yeah I'll be really absolutely my favorite scene is the when the case the I got is arm pulled from the tank is blood pressure and pressures classic yep then seventy with the a machete stricken zombie in the head right in the head design that guy by the way the guy who played machetes on me he has been to flashback weekend many times is a very nice guy but he's he's basically known as the guy who got a machete in his head that's that's basically for so all right Dan thanks buddy thank you how are you doing here all right so much stuff to talk about with this movie it's such a classic I you know it was that was very very very lucky enough to get to know George Romero interview him several times madam a bunch of times he's been on the show and he became you know he became kind of a friend and that was one of the highlights of my career and my life was getting to know George America pretty special I will take a break we got the news come up in more dawn of the dead talk three one two nine eight one seven two hundred.
"monroeville mall" Discussed on The No B******t Marketing Podcast
"Marketing firm today, we have part two of my conversation with Ed Shriver, one of the founding partners of Strada architectural firm in the first episode Ed talked about why he chose architecture and how his experience in the military helped shaped his leadership style in this particular part of the episode, he delves into how working with Disney impacted him and how he was able to help Disney, and how he and the partners of Strada have infused their own culture and involved over time and how they focus on design with people in mind, hope you enjoy it. Then you get back to the United States New come back to Pittsburgh. Yeah, I came back to Pittsburgh. Couple of friends were either still hang. Around here or or when they heard I was back. They came back. And so I found a job with the little architecture firm that hated. Lasted about two months and I got another job with a bigger firm JSA, and I spent twenty years there and my best friend who inspired me to go into the army. He took my job with little architecture. And then a few years later when that firm folded he came to work at JSA as well. So, so we literally kind of our whole career was like that. But the twenty years at JSA any management and leadership positions there. Yeah. Probably the last eight or ten years were management positions beyond just project management that I, I was operations for longtime. I worked under the directly under the I guess he would be the CFO Tom Schmidt. He was my mentor. So Tom taught me what I hadn't learned in the army, but how how being an architect really worked, and he was great. He was great. I remember a story, I was the project architect for the renovation of the monroeville mall, and we were taking the ice skating rink out of monroeville mon- turning it in. To food court, and I was the project manager and the president of the company was the principal in charge of the project, and I had done all the drawings most of the design work. I did the budgeting, I did almost everything went out to bids and the day that the bids were due Jim Johnson. The president of the company was on vacation in Florida, so he called. Tom and said, would you go with Edward to the bid openings about? So we went out together. I think we had five contractors bid on the project and the average of the five projects was exactly my estimate, which is unheard of absolutely dumb luck. I did no credit for being a great estimator. It was it was probabilistic dumb luck. But after we finished as we're driving back to the office. He says, let's go have a beer, so. He stopped off somewhere in green tree, and had probably ten beers. At one point in the discussion, Tom said, so where do you want your career to go? What do you want to do? And I said, I want your job. And he said, great. That's what I'm looking for. So he became my mentor, and we worked together until yet heart attack live nother six or eight years after that, but he retired after the heart attack and. There was a great relationship. I learned an awful lot from Tom and still think about him a lot mentor is a huge part of all of our lives. Some glad you had the chance to talk about that we've learned a couple of things about Ed Shriver of Strada architects, that when the going gets tough drink beer to make decisions. That's how you ended up in the army. That's how you end up celebrating this great estimate, and then becoming the number two with your mentor. When do you realize the entrepreneurial spirit kicks in that it's time for you to start your own thing? I think it was drinking again. Well, I was part of the AA American Institute of architects, Pittsburgh chapter. I was on the board of the chapter at that time you were the founder, though too well, right. Yes of Strada not AI. Okay. All right now, I'm not that old. So I'm on the board of the a and Alkatiri was also on the board. We know our neighbors, and John Martine was on the board and other one partners. And Michael stern was not on the board. But Michael was a consultant to the chapter on a project we had been working on. So I knew all those guys and I came home after a board meeting and I got a voicemail is back before emails voicemail from the. The president of j they knew president who I did not like in did not have any respect for. But it was a voice mail saying that we, he had just hired a new marketing director for the company and the guy that they had hired name was Tony poli. Well, Tony Pola was Alkatiri partner up until the moment. I heard the had left. He didn't even talk to Allah's completely caught off go. And so, I called the executive director, the, the chapter because in and our good friends, and I said, what the hell do I do with this? I mean, you know, and of course we had been drinking. Yes. Always good to get a second opinion. When you've been drinking Lloyd, I know L del kick. This guy's ass made them. Well it, it got ugly. But, you know, so all of a sudden, there was this little explosion in the architectural community and so shortly thereafter, I got fed up with the JSA dick, and I said, I'm outta here and Al at that point was short a partner by about maybe a month. So when I quit, I didn't quit to go to work with ou-. But when I quit, I had kind of this idea of a firm made of the four of us. And so, I reached out to all of them, and I said, why don't we sit down and talk for a little while? I have this idea about a new firm that I think would be good for all of us. And we got the other head more drinking and kind of hashed out the idea of Strada it so important when you have a company to build the culture, and so you went out to find people at like-minded values and you found the four of you, and that kind of drove the beginning of Strada talk a little bit about how that culture began. And then how it's evolved to where it is today. I think that similar culture is import values are important. But I also think that different perspectives are important. You don't want a firm full of yes, men or people who all think exactly alike, but you do need the same values. And so our thoughts around, what Strada could be was that with these four different perspectives. John John Martine, who is award winning architectural designer John's a great guy. And he's in my mind. Best architect going certainly the best architect, I've ever worked with as a designer Michael was is still outstanding urban designer and landscape architect. Michael went to Harvard. He taught it university of Virginia. He was the project. Manager for the city of Pittsburgh when they redid the entire downtown master-plan. So he managed that whole process. That's the process that put the stadiums where they are. Now it identified the fifth and Forbes corridor as a target that was critical to fix market square. That's all done through Strada note. This was before strana. Okay. That was what Michael had with the city and then Alan, I both had strong practice experience, we knew how to be architects, and do that. Well and such though is a good. It was a good mix and values were there. We wanted to make a difference. We were strongly focused on urban design and city planning, and that kind of thing we weren't interested in doing McDonald's or Ryan homes or things like that. We wanted to work downtown. We wanted to make a difference. That was a period. It wish there were several development, schemes floated about the fifth, and Forbes corridor. And, you know, they were bulldozing sections of downtown and proposals like that. And we were looking at that gun, we could do better than this, both we in the four of us. And as a city, we can do better than this. So those were the kinds of discussions that sort of brought us together. So in in architecture with marketing will we can make fun of when there's lousy marketers? They do like bullshit marketing do lousy creative. They. Do stuff that's just garbage. Okay. Do that, too. But it doesn't doesn't really hurt the world much. I guess other than bad social media. Bad billboards bad messaging. But when there's architects that are compromising the values it impacts a city a region. Talk about that a little bit it does. But it's hard to judge a design if you're not on the inside, you don't know what the budgets are. You don't know what the program is. You don't know what the client's vision was in a weaken. Do phenomenal sculpture. But we can't do buildings until we have a client, who's got a program that wants that we can then solve those problems. But if the building cost ten million dollars and the client can't afford it, then it doesn't matter how pretty it is. And we can challenge the client, we can push them to try to make things better. But in less you. You understand all of those elements. It's hard to judge another architects, work. You know, you can look at the really nice ones and say, wow, that's you know, the Guggenheim wow, that's great. That's very cool. Building probably cost today's dollars twenty five hundred dollars a square foot. Most buildings cost honored and fifty dollars a square foot. Guggenheim's got money. They can do that, that being said, though, I think, philosophically, you're probably being humble, and politically, correct. Because philosophically, you can tell the difference between architects, and I've worked as a company or companies worked with a number of architects in other jobs. I was responsible for some building expansion. I've worked with architects, and there are some that have a philosophy that's a little bit more volume oriented and margin oriented. And when you walk into Strada you can tell the culture and everyone on our team has said this that when you first walk into Strada, you can tell the culture that this is not a cookie cutter a volume based. Architectural firm. Yeah. I think that's true. And thank you. I'm glad that shows, there's sort of maybe three silos one is the cookie cutter repetitious make money things. You know McDonald's when she got McDonald's down, you can make a lot of money doing McDonald's on the other end of the spectrum is the architect, who doesn't really care what the client thinks it's their project, and they own it, and honest to God, I have heard architects say he hired me to do the job. Now get the hell out of the way and I'll design it. And that's the other end of the spectrum mostly because they don't get a lot of repeat clients, but. That's the other side we're more in the middle. I feel strongly that Strada is not so much a design firm, as it is a creative firm that we looked to resolve those issues in the most creative way possible to meet all of the requirements that we had strategic planning retreat last week. And the example, used his idea is a creative design firm. It's not so much about what these iphones look like. It's the fact that there was no conception of this intil Ideo conceived of it. That's what I think, stratas is that kind of combination of technical and artistic and practical and budget all together. How do you make all of those pieces work? It's just. Beautiful and has not code compliant doesn't matter where you can't afford it doesn't matter. So I think the key at least for for me and for stratas focus on creativity. Your big idea is designed with people in mind, and I think you are alluding to that. But talk a little bit more about how design with people in mine resonates with you and your clients and your clients clients. Yeah. That we, we started the firm with that whole concept at that point. We were calling places for people, but it is where we start in the creative process. It's not sculpture. It's not music is it's people places. That's what drives us. That's what we're interested in. I'm fascinated with the whole concept of neuroscience how the brain perceives space, and how space affects our brains. Winston Churchill's great line that we shape, our buildings than they shape us. And that's absolutely true what we don't really understand is how that happens. And so we're working with Disney down at Epcot on expansion to the Japanese pavilion, and it's fascinating to me, how Disney designs their parks because they are so good at creating space that affects people, you know, that makes you feel this way or that way, and how they do that is really fascinating. It's, it's more set design than it is architecture. But when you work with them, you find out how hard it is to make the architecture to support the set design to create the effect. And it's been a real education as. To the neuroscience of architecture talk a little bit about your work with Disney specifically Disney's philosophy of a magic nearing when we started Strada, one of the examples that.

"And you know, there are so many amazing things to see in Washington DC. I mean, you got the capital you got the White House this myth Sonian. You got all these all these really incredible stuff to see in DC. The first thing we do when we get the DC. I insist that we do it. I said we're going to Georgetown, and we're going to the exorcist steps. That's what we're doing. And that's the first thing we're doing I don't care about the capital, you can take the Smithsonian. I want to go to the exorcist steps and immediately what we did. And it's awesome. That's that's a bucket Lister. Oh my God. I have pictures of me acting like I'm falling down the steps. Did you see the joker trailer? I did. I think that's the those are the exorcist steps that. Yeah. I mean, there are no other steps that looked like that. Or at least they're made to look like I mean because I was like, wait a minute. Those are the exorcist steps it doesn't it. Doesn't shock me. That Todd Phillips was wanna visually referenced those. Yeah. Yeah. I did go to the. Went to Austin. And I went to the Texas chainsaw massacre. Oh. Station. Yeah. Gotta gas served barbecue. They're awesome, man. I love to go there. I spent like fifty dollars on a cab there like to get there and then fifty dollars back because it's on the outskirts. Yeah. It's a while and didn't have a car and within the monroeville mall in Pennsylvania where they shot on. Obviously doesn't look anything. Like it does in the movie shot in nineteen seventy seven. A lot of different stores in there now, but this was a while ago, though, there's a long time ago when I went on, but it's still look different. But yeah, but it was the first thing was the extra steps. And it was funny as that. I have a buddy who's from DC who grew up in DC. And you know, he hid I told him, you know, when I went to the extra steps he goes. Yeah. I used to smoke 'bout there. All the time. That was like where everybody smoked pot was the exorcist steps if you were a pothead, Georgetown, you go. You know, you'd go you you'd blow weed. Yeah. Right at the bottom of the exorcist steps at least when we went, and this is again was in one thousand nine hundred at the bottom of the exorcist steps was like a hollowed out like a old Karaj that was filled with graffiti and stuff. So clearly, it was not it was just the place where punks went and blew weed, and it was and it's right by the the the right by highway like eight overlooks a hill right by the highway the house, by the way, the house that they use the exorcist is about four blocks over so. When Jason Miller goes flying out the window at the end of the movie, I don't know if he flies four blocks and then hits the steps because next made its in the movie, they make it seem like the steps are right outside the house, but the house just before the houses, four blocks away. I like to believe that he flew while he was possessed at the time. So, but anyway, that was fun for the extra step is a very cool thing. And then we ended up obviously going to see all the other stuff in DC, and we went to the Smithsonian. This is this is our level of intelligence me. And my friends the first thing we did when we went to the Smithsonian. There's so many things to see in the Smithsonian. We go we immediately go, where's funds these jacket and where's Archie bunkers chair? There's all these insane history. And all these unbelievable things to see in the Smithsonian institute that are historical and beautiful and educational, and we immediately immediately wanna see funds these jacket and Archie chair. And we did it was cool. All right. All right. All right. We're gonna take a break. And if you guys have. Memorabilia or had memorabilia that was worth something, and you got rid of it due to peer pressure or just because you guys were clearing it out. Or maybe your parents threw it out had no idea what it was worth and tossed it out. Just like that Babe Ruth ball that Michael told the story about and and you regret it. Now, you used to have some stuff that's worth a lot of money. We'd love to hear from you three one nine eight one seven two hundred. And I also do have an article here about the most expensive sports memorabilia of all time. And you're not gonna believe what some of this stuff is worth. So join us two three one two nine eight one seven two hundred and a little bit later on. We're gonna talk about people who collect weird stuff. And I mean, weird weird stuff.

It was interesting the Thursday before that we did cost play karaoke, which I don't sing, but I went to support some of my friends for them. It's pretty fun. It's interesting. All right. Gonna get. Say that in English again, we cut out or. Anybody lily or you're gonna be, you're gonna get into. Princeton live action role player? No, I don't think I'm gonna do that. I am not. No, I'm not into it. I go to dress sexy and have guys look at my breasts. So sorry. She's bresca. Back in the day rendered. I'm good. Thanks so I don't. I've never played DND either. So here's what we need to do guys. We need you guys to send donations to keep the hawk Hawkins so he can buy a really nice USB Mike, so we can actually hear him. So sounds like better alien talk. I can't hear him. So Keith. So what's going on Keith? Keith has had a steady flow of houseguests. Right? Yeah. A couple of months now, since you moved down there so, but it's kind of quieting down now. Right? Yes. It's. For Christmas on October. I think I'm getting guest knocked over. Are you big Halloween party down the warlords? They should do that. Oh, thanks giving my outta rallying, don't even get me. Don't even get me excited about that. But. Got. Billy. Wanda down the per per day is somebody wasn't hearing a month. It's all felt it back to quiet time. Nello got the whole house back to yourself. Diesel is all like forlorn. He likes all the attention. He's such a Cutie pie. All right. So I, I should say we are talking about the mazing Chris Cornell, one of the really, really one of the really amazing vocalist that came out of the grunge. Movement and carried on through the two thousands of putting out great solo stuff, had some head great band, one of my favorite bands of all time actually audio slave. So Keith, why don't you of give us a little bit? Let's talk a little bit about. I know Keith, the city's been on Chris Cornell kick for a little bit. So why don't we start with the hawks ter- tells what's going on, but he talked about the Chris Cornell. Do. I think that there's Cuba come along that actually have an impact on my life as a robber plan. A pretty mercury sting and I'm gonna put Chris Cornell as a more modern day version of our plant. Whereas the band was behind him with phenomenal song Gordon talking about and he basically. When that man's saying when it opens his mouth manners. He got a great that great lyrics and you know, unfortunately, I don't know what was going on up in his head there sometime but ended his life. But at the same time, the music he left behind was legendary that yet I got a modern day note local Bosnian, very, very distinctive voice in the same way. The other two guys you talked about staying and our plan. I mean, he had that Barry sitting like the first note you knew who it was. Can name that in one. So what about you, what, what, what are your sort of with sort of overview? What would he have. We all know I'm not really hugely into the whole grunge scene. However, Chris Cornell is one of my stop. I, you know, my my, my stop is not nineties grunge, but I am giving Chris Cornell exception because he did have a fantastic voice. I absolutely love to garden when I was younger and I'm not as into audio slave, but I do like them. And I feel like also like that whole grunge thing. He made it his own. It wasn't like typical. This is grunge band. All right. And bring anyway. Yeah. I mean. I feel the same way too. I mean, he, I always heard it. I felt that Soundgarden. There's that some of those bands warhead their head, their feet more planted in hard rock seventies rock metal. And I think sound guards, definitely specially on. Loud his love and bad motor finger. You know, I think when they got up on the Dow up was called up on the downside. Down on the upside, close boom about. About. I think when when when we got to that, I think that they had kind of really made their sound more radio friendly with with slightly shorter songs. Some more like. Acoustic stuff. I think that super known is actually the record I'm actually thinking of is like they're sort of like album where they really had like, like all the big hits. You know, whereas real, I really prefer, I think that bad motor finger is the record where that that's that's the record. I always go back to for Soundgarden because the songs aren't quite as poppy. It's still supergrasses, but they had really at that point defined what their sound was going to be loud loud as love is, is a is a kind of like, we don't know who we are yet. They still had a little bit kind of had a little bit of eighties rock kind of mixed in a little bit and a couple of different things going on. But when I think when I did bad motor finger songs like outshined and rusty cage turned a, yeah, outshine. I thought that they really were like, I think it was really explosive. And I think it's also it's still really, really raw. You know, and and some of the songs like rooms room thousand years wide, and some of the longer tunes kind of drone and stuff that are killer tracks aren't quite as radio friendly, but I think they're really great. And I just I kind of that's sort of my period of Chris Cornell Soundgarden that I just really, really love. That's when I, when I saw the video outshine I was like jaw on floor, like who the is this just completely blown away by that. So what what do you? What do you wanna say about Keith. Song garden. Is a modern day leads up one. They were influential to mate. They could do heavy is heavy as you wanted to go. They were lumped in with the from. They could do a coup stick with someone that pallet at the helm, fall writing, vocal. You can do pretty much whatever you want the, like I said at times a Bank get super heavy. But at the same time they could write, you know, more laid back later on in based getting a little bit more mellow, red radio friendly. But with Chris has things than you can pretty much write your own tickets. I think they could have pretty much did whatever they wanted, but they were a very influential ban, I think. And one of the better if not the best to me modern rock bands of the last, you know, since the ground started, I mean, it's just, I mean, everybody gets all wrapped up in the whole like nirvana Pearl Jam thing. But I just, you know, this band me was heading shoulders above those days. I agree with that. That's that's what I was saying. They have their own sound in that time period. It's not just the typical grunge band of the nineties. Yeah. I mean, there was a lot of somewhat of sort of like a long with, you know, the the big ones nirvana Pearl Jam sound guards Alison chains in stone temple pilots. There was a lot of sort of like nameless faceless bans that you know the kind of popped up for like a couple of songs and then you know. Disappeared, but Soundgarden was really unique in the sense that I think that they really did kind of. I one of the things I did in Keith, maybe talk a little bit about this. They did it play a lot play around with.
