He knew that being the nephew of King Arthur had its privileges, but they only went so far. He didn't want people to think he was coasting by on his name alone. He was Arthur's blood. He had to be the best. Each night of the festival featured a decadent feast with plenty of wine and beer for all by New Year's Day King. Arthur decided that they needed to do something extra special, Sir Go! Wayne sat at the head table next to his uncle. The king as the food was brought out King Arthur couldn't hide his joy as he stood, the entire room turned to their king as he spoke. A Happy New Year to all of camelot. Before we eat I want to be amazed. I want to hear a tale so gracious so extravagant that we will remember this night for the rest of the year indeed for the rest of our lives.

As the roar of the crowd died down, another sound rose up a rumbling from outside, going quite put his finger on what it was. The door to the dining hall swung open, and a shadow fell across the room. The entire banquet hall fell silent. Go Wayne couldn't believe his eyes. It was a night riding on his horse into the dining hall. He was the biggest man go. Wayne had ever seen and his clothing, his skin, his beard. They were all entirely green. I'm Vanessa Richardson.

Seconds rain the story. itself is likely much older tracing back to a Middle Irish tale from eleven hundred ce with a similarly gruesome setup. The author of the Fourteenth Century Manuscript is completely unknown, though scholars have gathered some clues from quirks in the writing the language, as well as detailed descriptions of certain landscapes seemed to indicate that the author came from the North West Midlands of England and while the manuscript was written around fourteen hundred, there was no record of. Of the poem existing until the early Seventeenth Century cataloged as part of a private library collection, it had completely disappeared from history for two centuries between it's presumed origin and its reappearance. It would be another two hundred years before the tail's popularity would truly take off during the reign of Queen Victoria since then Sir Gawain and the Green. Knight has become an English lit staple and a prime example of a middle English Romantic Poem Not Romance in our modern understanding of the term. We might describe it as an adventure story, a brave knight of the Round Table Fights, temptations of the flesh, otherworldly creatures, and a hellish landscape, all to fulfill his noble promise and keep his good name. Sir Go. Wayne stared in disbelief at the massive green monstrosity. Lording over the room, he was nearly twice the size of any other man, his head well above the lanterns on the wall. He's half giant, said go wayne in quiet amazement, but it wasn't just the size of the stranger that caught go Wayne's attention, but his hugh he was completely green head to toe, his leggings tunic his skin, even his elbow, length, hair, and beard all green. His horse was even green. The night it across the room head held high. His red eyes locked on the king. King Arthur stared right back at the interloper as the Green Knight approached go Wayne saw detailed embroidery all over the Knight's horse, and his garments, golden accents in the Horse's Mane, and even solid Gold Spurs on the nights feet go. Wayne looked closer. The strain night wasn't wearing boots. The Spurs were attached directly to his feet. Sir Wayne studied the stranger. He looks like a monster, but no monster would be so well dressed. The Green Knight didn't have a sword or armor. He wasn't dressed for a fight. In one hand he held a Sprig of holly an evergreen man, carrying the fruit of an evergreen tree go. Wayne would have found it amusing. Had it not been for what he carried in the other? A massive acts fit for an executioner it like everything else was completely green and elaborately decorated the Blade glistened in the candle light. The Green Knight finally pulled his horse to a stop. He looked around the room, staring each and every night. In the I, not one moved the Green Knight shouted voice booming through the hall. Who hails himself as master of this House. The king stepped forward and raised his cup to the intruder. Oh warm, welcome to you sir. Why don't you step out of the saddle and have some wide circle? Wayne couldn't believe his ears. Why was Arthur welcoming this man? He didn't dare interrupt. He trusted the Kings Guidance, but the Green Knight shook his head, as he looked around the room at the red drunken faces of the roundtable. He turned back to Arthur. So this is camelot. These are the most fared fearsome warriors and. And all the land, though most honorable nights I had to see it for myself Arthur remained impassive while surrogate Wayne's blood boiled. Wasn't his uncle going to do anything? The Green Knight held up the SPRIG of Holly. I'm not here for a fight I. Don't think it would be fair not against this group of Drunken Babes. You Call Knights. No, I'm here for something else. It is Christmas time, isn't it? Time of joy the time of games. That's what I'm here for a game. Arthur nodded. Go on. The Green Knight held up the giant acts with one hand a swing for a swing I'll kneel right here in the middle of King Arthur's court and let one of you. Fide gentlemen have the first hack. My neck I promise. I Won't flinch in return one year from today I get to match your swing for my. Oh. The room stirred with chatter the Green Knight laughed. None will step up. I thought this was camelot, the beacon of bravery and strength Sir go wayne new. This was a trick. None of us can step up. We'll make the king look bad, and if Google, Wayne knew that Arthur did to. King Arthur shouted folly finds the man that flirts with the fool, but I'll do it. The Green Knight's smile and dismounted King. Arthur marched right up to the man and stared up at the giant. The Green Knight handed the axe to Arthur. Let me my king, Sir. Wayne shouted. He couldn't let his uncle take this swing. All eyes turned to the young night go. Wayne had just bested all of these men during the war games and he was Arthur's blood relative. I'm the only one suited for this swing thought go Wayne. Surg away leaned forward his voice, low but steady. My King if you'll allow me. I will gladly take this swing in your stead. Look around this room. Living legends, everyone, the bravest of the brave, and the greatest being your majesty I'm just a man who has been lucky in this life. CAMELOT cannot lose King Arthur. I suspect it can do without his nephew. King Arthur nodded. Sir Wayne stood and walked across the room, unsure if this was a trick, or if the stranger had a death wish King Arthur handed, his nephew acts go, Wayne lift his uncle. He couldn't tell if the king was proud of him. For stepping up, Arthur's expression betrayed no emotion at all. Sir, go, Wayne, push those thoughts from his mind, and gazed up into the red eyes of the night and introduced himself to the giant. Standing this close to the Green Knight, he could tell he was just a man, a large man, but flesh and blood, though his green hue still went unexplained. The Green Knight Glare Down On. Go Wayne. Repeat back to me the challenge I wanNA. Make sure you stand what your doing. Go Wayne calmly repeated the challenge, just as the Green Knight had stated. The Green. Knight smiled and got down on all fours. He flipped his long hair over his head, exposing his bare neck there was no hidden armor, and the Blade of the axe was sharp enough to shave with standing here with the axe in hand, and the Green Knight Knelt in front of him go. Wayne couldn't help but feel like. This was all too easy. This man is asking for death. He thought. Sir Go Wayne lifted the acts as high as he could, and with every ounce of strength. He had swung it down. It was a clean shot. The head cleaved off and rolled across the room. Blood spilled from the Green Knight's body, but he didn't fall. He didn't move at all. Sir, go! Wayne's blood ran cold. His jaw dropped as the green. Knight pushed off the ground blood spilling out the top of his neck. The Green Knight calmly stood back up and retrieved his head with no more effort or worry than if he was picking a daisy, the Green Knight held his head by the hair in one hand, and hopped back on his horse with ease, he raised the decapitated head toward Wayne and spoke from it. Find me at the Green Chapel Seargl Wade. Find me or be a coward. The Green Knight turned and dug his Spurs into his horse. The horse took off in a sprint so fast that sparks kicked up from its hove's against the stone. Circle Wayne could only stare after him thinking, what have I done?

Now back to the story. seargl Wayne stood dumbfounded in the empty hall. The Green Knight had wrote away leaving only blood stains to show that he was ever there go. Wayne had cut the nights head clean off, but didn't kill him. In one year go Wayne owed the Green Knight Swing at his own neck now the sound of laughter broke Sir go Wayne Out of his days. It was King Arthur, the king padded go. Wayne on the shoulder, took the axe from him, and it hung in the Grand Hall, a Memento of this wild and counter. Arthur walked the stunned go wayne back toward the table, doing his best to put his mind at ease. Don't let the darkness drag you down. He survived your swing. You might survive his. Sir Go Wayne wished he shared his uncle's optimism. He did his best to put on a good face. He couldn't live a whole year in a constant state of dread. For Sir. Go, Wayne! The following year was a blur, winter, Spring and summer all blended together as the image of a green executioner's axe sat at the back of his head. As winter approached go. Wayne knew he could not risk is reputation as either a night or the nephew of the great king. Arthur, he had to journey out and find the Green Chapel by New Year's Day. The festival for Saints Day was as grand as any ever seen in camelot, but try as he might go. Wayne couldn't enjoy himself. He had to take his leave at dawn go. Wayne went to King Arthur and requested permission to begin his journey. His servants laid out the finest silks and armor to dress him for his excursion trimmings of red and gold on everything they brought his horse, Gringo let out of the stable dress just as finely as go, Wayne himself, sir, Go Wayne climbed upon his horse, and a squire brought out the knight's shield red with a gold five pointed star painted across it. Sir Go Wayne basked in the breaking sunlight to an outsider. He'd looked like the perfect image of night, but forgot. Wayne this meant very little. He knew it offered him no real protection, this shiny shield and armor would be of no use against a free swing from the Greene Knight. It was all for show. Go Wayne dug his spurs into the side of his horse and rode out into the country to find the Green Chapel. seargl Wayne was in the wild and all alone for the first time in his life. Go Wayne for. Having against the natural world to be completely different than fighting men, men could be reasoned with or defeated. Nature could not. Every day was a fight for his life. Everything wanted him dead. Dwayne worked his way across Wales and up the coast of England, but with each town wayne past he grew more and more dejected. Do you know of the Green Chapel he'd ask, but the response was always the same, a strange look and a quick shake of the head. The terrain and weather turned harsh and unrelenting the snow set in, he was cold and starving for the first time all year go. Wayne began to wonder if he was even going to live to see New Year's at all mentally. He was prepared to die by the Green Knight's hand. It never occurred to him that he might not make it that far. On Christmas Eve Sergo Wayne's faith cracked. He knew he only had a week to go. And he was no closer to finding the green chapel than when he left two months ago, he could be farther away actually he was wandering blind in the wilderness. Sir Go Wayne finally reached a valley pudding, the snowy mountains behind him, it was cold comfort, however in front of him, Laya, thick, overgrown forest, all dead branches and clustered ancient oaks. The Sun was just coming up, but the light barely broke through the trees. He dropped to his knees. Mother Mary Guide me some manner somewhere I might have mass for Christmas Day Circle Wayne looked up squinting his eyes against the sun through the thicket of trees. He thought he saw a tower. It hadn't been a forest that was blocking out the sun. It was a castle. It's wall stretched far off in each direction circle. Wayne couldn't believe it. His prayers had been answered. seargl Wayne, road his horse through the Treeline, nearing the moat that surrounded the castle. The drawbridge was up, sir, go! Wayne called to the gate. His eyes lit up as a porter stuck his head through a turret. It was the first human face go. Wayne had seen in weeks. Go Wayne Helmet under his arm barely had the strength to shout. Could I bother the master of the House for a warm meal? The porter called out for the drawbridge to be lowered. The bridge hit the ground and go Wayne's heart filled with joy. The full court was there to welcome him all warm and smiling full of Christmas cheer. The court ears descended upon Gohain, eager to assist him with his armor they pulled off his giant steel boots, and his soaked cloak, wrapping him in a lush dry robe. It was a feeling go. Wayne had nearly forgotten warmth. Waiting for go Wayne in the throne room was a large smiling man with a bushy red beard. He was physically imposing, but there was an unmistakable kindness to him go. Wayne could see why his subjects were so willing to follow him. Go Wayne Knelt before the Lord of the House. Thank you for your generosity, my Lord. I've been traveling for months. Could I bother you for a warm meal and perhaps a bed for the night? The Lord told him to stand stranger. It's Christmas stay as long as you need. SEARGL. Wayne stood, and the Lord wrapped him in his arms. The Lord, said go way up in one of his finest rooms, and laid out a feast for him. The wine flowed and the Lord and go. Wayne chatted away into the night. Like old friends seargl Wayne believe his luck of all the Castles to stumble upon he found this one with. It's kind and generous master. As the two men sat and drank by the fire, the lured introduced himself as Berta lack and. And finally asked go wayne his name. The grateful night bowed his head. Sir Wayne of Camelot at your service Berta lack burst into laughter. He couldn't believe it a night of the round table here at his lowly castle Sergei Wayne was happy to see his reputation had made it all the way to this dark corner of England, and was thrilled to Regale the Lord's nights with tales of camelot and the roundtable. The church bells rang calling all to Christmas Eve Mass Lord Bertelli invited Sir Go Wayne to join him for the service. The two sat side by side in the Lord's Pew. In the of his eye, Sir Go! Wayne saw someone move. He turned his head, and for the first time laid eyes on the Lady of the House. She was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen with a grace all to herself, she moved effortlessly as if gliding across the room, The lady caught Surg Awakens, gays, and smiled Sir Wayne deeply bowed his head in deference to her. After mass the Christmas festival began day after day. Sir Dwayne and Berta lack ate and drank together. It was a more than welcome distraction for Wayne, but it was just that a distraction as dawn broke on the twenty eighth of December Sergei knew he needed to be on his way. He only had a few days left to find the Green Chapel go. Wayne dressed in his full gear, his armor, his TUNIC, his cloak, and went to Berta lacks chambers. Sir Go Wayne Knelt before the Lord thanking him profusely for his kindness, but he had to ask for his leave. The. Lord stared back at go Wayne, stroking his beard. I never thought to ask what drew you out of camelot and the dead of winter. Surely it wouldn't be for any trivial reason, sir go! Wayne stood and leveled his gaze. I in search of the Green. Chapel I must make it there. By the New Year for I have a debt to pay. The Lord leaned forward a strange glint in his eye. Sir, go! Wayne was in luck again. The Green Chapel was nearby, not even a half day's ride from the castle. He could leave New Year's morning and get there before noon. Go Wayne couldn't believe it after all this time. The end to his journey was within reach. BERTA lack encouraged his guest to relax. He threw his arms around Wayne. Let's have a little contest. Be out hunting every morning. Why don't you stay here? Sleep in. Enjoy yourself when I return. I'll trade you my game for whatever you have gained here the castle. What do you say Sir Wayne? Glain shook his hand. These were more than fair terms. The next morning before dawn broke go, Wayne woke to the sound of the trumpets, calling the men to the hunt, but there was another noise that caught his attention a click from the door lock. Surrogate, Wayne's is turned toward the door. Someone was sneaking in on him. Carefully go Wayne peered out of the bed curtains. His jaw dropped at the site of the intruder. It was the Lady Bird Elec creeping into his chambers. Coming up Sir go Wayne's honor is tested now back to the story. After agreeing to exchange Lord bird lacks winnings in the fields for his own in the castle. Sir, go Wayne was shocked to see the Lady of the House sneaking into his room. The lady crossed the floor toward Serbia Wayne. Even in the early morning gloom, he could see that she was dressed in her finest with a plunging. That left little to the imagination. This was not an official visit. His heart sped up the most beautiful woman he had ever seen and the wife of large Berta. Lack was headed straight for his bed. The lady was close. Her hand reached up to pull back the curtain circle. Wayne had crisis of conscience unsure of how he should behave. He did the only thing he could think of. He closed his eyes and pretended to be asleep. He felt the bed Cenk under her wait time passed, but she did not move sir. Wayne felt silly. He was an honorable night. He couldn't just sit here and pretend to be asleep. No I have to ask the lady what she wants. He thought. Sir Go Wayne. Yawned opened his eyes feigning surprise at her sitting so close to him on the bed. My Lady, what are you doing here? The lady draped her body across Serbia Wayne and wrapped the sheets tightly around him. She didn't want him going anywhere. The Lord and his huntsmen are all out as an honorable Knight of the roundtable. You can't deny the Lady of the house her wants. She lingered inches away from his face Surg away. Rain did his best to deflect. He was a knight of the Round Table For sure, but that didn't put him in the same class. As a beauty such as the lady, he was just a humble servant to the house, he could never dream of being with her the to verbally danced around one another the lady, making her advances and Sir go Wayne Politely Deflecting each one with excessive humility, finally frustrated with the exchange. The lady stood up. You can't really be surrogate Wayne his reputation is known far and wide the bravest and boldest. Roundtable would never be so close to a woman such as myself and deny her a Kiss Circle Wayne sat up. He couldn't abide having his good name questioned. That would be just as dishonorable. He stopped her before she could leave just a kiss, he asked. The lady nodded. Sir Go Wayne agreed. And she leaned down and planted her lips onto his. She pulled away and thanked him leaving as quietly as she came. Circle Wayne leapt from the bed and quickly dressed. He could not let this delay. Keep him from mass that morning. By nightfall, Lord Berta lack had returned. Sir Go! Wayne made his way to the entrance, ready to greet him and exchange their winnings. The Lord entered covered in mud and blood sweat, dripping from his face and his beard. A dead doe was slung over his shoulders. BERTA lack grinned as he greeted, sir, go, Wayne, dropping the dough at his feet. He launched right into his story. You should have seen this dear quite a crafty one. It ducked and dodged us all day long as we agreed. It's all yours. Now. What did you win today here at the Castle? Sir Go Wayne nodded. A deal is a deal. He wrapped his arms around the Lord and planted a kiss on him go. Wayne could see the look of surprise in the Lord's eyes. He rubbed his red beard dots quite a prize. Where did you win such a thing? Sir Go Wayne shook his head. That wasn't part of our packed. BERTA lack cackled with delight and slapped. Wayne on the back the to went off into the hall to Feast the Night Away. The next morning, sir, go! Wayne awoke to lady. Bird lack sneaking into his room once again. I should take a more direct approach. Today Sir go Wayne Thought. She feigned offense says she sat down next to him Sir, Dwayne you dishonor me yesterday I made it known that I wanted a kiss and here i. sit and you haven't welcomed me with one. He told the lady that he would never presume that. She was there for a kiss, but if that's what she was here for, he was happy to oblige her. The lady leaned on and kissed him. Go Wayne a night of such renown. Surely there's more you could teach me. He humbly retreated. Could he teach her about love? A Lady of her quality in stature must've known far more than he on the subject. He was careful not to offend the lady of the House nor betray the Lord's trust. Finally, she kissed. Sir Go Wayne again and made her way out. As soon as she was out the door, go, Wayne dressed and made his way to mass. Just as he had the night before Sir Wayne met the Lord as he returned home from the hunt. BERTA lacks clothes were torn, and two of his hunters were sporting bandages, but the smile on his face, and the boars head, he carried, showed that he had won the day he dropped the head at Serb Wayne's feet. This one nearly killed two of my men. We had backed into a corner, but the beast wouldn't bow down. He's all yours and you sir go wayne what. Did you win today? Go Wayne wrapped his arms around the Lord and gave him to kisses Berta, elax smiled. I'd say you're faring far better than I in this bet Sir Wayne. The two men laughed ready for another night of food and drink. The next day Sir go Wayne Awoke well past noon. His eyes shod Open Lady. Bird lack was curled up on the bed next to him. She kissed him on the lips and cooed in his ear. Don't worry about breaking my heart I. Am all yours? Unless? Of course there's another woman that you belong to sir. Go Wayne assured her that there was no one else, but he would not betray his host. The Lady resigned to the Knights dismissals asked for one final kiss. Another request she wanted his glove something to remember him. by Sir go wayne sat up if he had a hundred men all carrying his finest possessions, it wouldn't be a gift. Worthy of her Amir Glove would be an insult. The lady accepted the compliment, and countered with a gift of her own, a red and gold ring, but Sir Wayne refused. The gold ring was far too glamorous for a night. She took the ring back, but began to undo her belt instead of fine silk of green with gold trimmings. Surely Sir Wayne could accept that gift. Again Surrogate Wayne declined. The lady was now offended, not even this girdle. If you only knew how precious this piece is, whoever wears? This belt cannot be harmed. Sergei Wayne's is grew wide. It was New Year's Eve tomorrow. You would have to face the Green Knight. This belt might be his only chance at surviving. Sir, go Wayne took the lady's hand. He would be honored to take such a precious gift. The lady leaned close and kissed Sagawa Wayne. She held his gaze and whispered. Whatever you do, do not tell my husband. You have this belt. As soon as the lady was gone, go, Wayne dressed and made his way to mass. He needed to be sure his soul was cleansed before tomorrow morning. Sir Go Wayne waited patiently that night for the Hunting Party when Lord Bird. Lack finally arrived all he carried with him was one small Fox. The. Lord held out to Sir Go Wayne. This little foxes deepen fit to eat, but it's yours now. What did you win? Today Sir go Wayne, grabbed the Lord and kissed him three times. The lowered tossed the Fox to the ground. Now I'm even more ashamed of this pitiful Fox. You've outdone me again. The new. Year's Eve party was a sombre one with sir. Go Wayne taking his leave in the morning. One by one of the court came up to go Wayne and let him know how much he would be missed. They were all just as fond of him as Berta lack was. Surrogate Wayne thanks the Lord profusely for his hospitality. He had saved his life. Go Wayne was up at the first crow of the rooster. He carefully wrapped the green belt of the lady around his waist as he dressed as dawn broke. Sir, go Wayne road out to meet his fate. The guide lead Sir Wayne, over the Snowy Hills, stopping at the edge of a jagged cliff, the terrified guide pointed to a path that led down through the jagged rocks to a marsh below down, there was the Green Chapel. The guide refused to go any further and begged. Go Wayne to turn back. He swore he'd never tell a soul about grains decision if he decided to flee. The guide trembled as he spoke, but Sir Wayne had given his word. It was up to God whether he died that day he had to do the honorable thing and allow the. Green Knight a swing at his head. Sir Wayne led his horse. Don't the jagged path to the marsh, but something wasn't right. There wasn't a chapel insight. There was only an unusual mound next to a waterfall, a dark crevasse between two stones, overgrown with vines and Moss Sir Wayne's heart filled with dread. This had to be the Green Chapel. Go Wayne tied Granola to try and drew his sword he inched toward the cave, the wet ground squishing underneath his feet. He stepped into the darkness of the Green Chapel. Sir Wayne had to stop and let his eyes adjust to the darkness. He couldn't see a thing, but he could hear the whine of metal grinding against stone, the sound of an axe being sharpened. Circle Wayne held out his sword and shouted. Collect your debt, you coward. The sound of grinding stopped of voice, boomed out from the blackness at ease seargl away. The Green Knight leaped out of the darkness and landed in front of Sir. Go Wayne, a giant gleaming. Danish acts in his hand. Sir. Go Wayne stood tall as the Green Knight approached the Green Knight's voice echoed off the walls as he spoke. You honor jar word. Circle Wayne now. pull off your helmet and take what you are. Oh! Sir Go Wayne threw aside his sword and helm, and dropped to the wet Mossy floor, he bared his neck, and took a deep breath as the Green Knight raised the axe. But from the quarter of his I, Sir Go, Wayne saw the blade move and flinched. It was involuntary and ever so slightly, but he flinched the Green Knight. Is Grain are Jew the bravest. Most honorable of all of Arthur's Knights did I. Flinch when you lopped off my head. Don't chew me the same respect. Sir Go Wayne was embarrassed. The Green Knight was right. He assumed the position once again, assuring his executioner, he wouldn't budge the time. He dug his hands into the moss underneath and steadied himself. He wouldn't move again. No matter what the Green Knight heaved the axe above his head, and swung down with all his force. The acts landed harmlessly in the Moss Surg Wayne turned and looked at the Green Knight who smiled at him. I had to make sure you weren't going to flinch again, but now that I know protect your neck. Sir, go! Wayne shouted back. Stop playing games and take your swing. Go. Wayne again planted himself into the ground. Stock still is to the ground ready to meet his fate. It's sliced through the air, but only Nick Surg Wayne on the edge of his neck, drawing blood, but doing no real damage, sir, go, Wayne immediately dove for his sword, he snatched it off the ground and pointed it at the Green Knight Ready to attack. The Green Knight lowered the axe and smiled at go, Wayne. I didn't swing on the first. Because you were faithful to our agreement on that first night and I missed on that second. Try Because you honored our agreement on the second night, but on the third I had to make some contact because you weren't completely truthful with me. You kept something from me. You didn't give me all your winnings. You kept the belt. Sir Wayne's is widened the green. Knight was Lord Brutal Lack. He had stayed with him for the last week. The whole thing was a test. The Green Knight applauded go Wayne. He truly was the most honorable of all of King. Arthur's knights. But Sir go! Wayne seethed angry with himself. He ripped the belt off and threw it at the feet of the Green Knight Ashamed of what he had become, he'd been covetous and cowardly. He'd forgotten everything about being a true, virtuous and honorable night. Maybe he had never really known. Sir, go Wayne dropped to his knees and hung his head. He begged the green night for forgiveness. But the Green Knight said there was nothing to forgive. Sir, go Wayne admitted his failings. The Nick on his neck was all that was required go. Wayne had proven his worth. He had lived up to his reputation. Sir, go Wayne was humbled truly and deeply humbled maybe for the first time in his life. He picked the belt up off the ground. I will wear this belt forever, not as a trophy, but as a reminder of the free of the flesh. But Wayne had one last question. How how did BERTA? Lack do all this. The Green Knight smiled. My wife is Morgan. LA- Fay Moore Liz former pupil. It was her spells that hit our appearances. This whole charade was her idea. She wanted to put the pride of camelot on trial. She expected you to fail. Surrogate Wayne thanked Lord Berta lack for everything. This was a lesson. He would never forget. By the time Sergei made it back to camelot, the wound on his neck had healed on his return. The court erupted with joy. They were certain go. Wayne had fallen Surg Wayne recounted the entire endeavor leaving no embarassing moment out. King. Arthur loved the story. His nephew face down his own frailty and came out truly humbled. Or that a greenbelt be worn by every one of his nights, so it would be a message that they too would never forget.

This is myths and legends episode one thirty eight Carl. This is a podcast where I tell stories from Thalji and folklore some are incredibly popular stories you'd think you know, but what surprising origins others stories that might be new to you. But are definitely worth. Listen, Jay stories, another one that exists outside of our three in continuity. If this is your first time here in Arthur legend on the show, the King Arthur stories take place, roughly in the six hundred eighty in Great Britain, Arthur was braised in secret with his adopted brother Kay, Arthur pulled the sword from the stone a whole bunch of other stuff happened it eventually he ruled over a semi peaceful. Great Britain K became his right hand, man. And we met, sir. Dwayne his current NBK going, of course is his nephew by way of his half sister Magas. And at the star today story Cain going are looking forward to hunting trip with king. Arthur that is until we invite some friends. So fun lewke boys night hunting trip going said as he looked on the crowd gathered outside Cardiff and Wales. You didn't think he met five hundred armed and mounted knights right into the forest number. So great that the deer population of Great Britain might never recover. Yeah. Try planning it Circe marked before taking a long long drink from his wine skin. Anyway, there's the horn. Let's do this everyone who was anyone galloped off at the sound of the horn five hundred horses and probably twice as many Squires and servants green and k decided to stick together and neither them objected when Bishop Baldwin wrote up and asked if he could ride with them to K was worn out from a van planning and go Wayne well going didn't really need the glory of the hunt. He was widely known as the best night in the world. Despite some French upstart named LANCELOT nipping at his heels five hundred people galloping into the forest would scare every deer on the island. He would just try to. Enjoy the ride in the country with Arthur's, brother. Yeah. You know, what Senator show means Circe ask Wayne as the sun began to sink lower in the sky comes from a French word that means doesn't sleep in the dirt. We're going to keep writing until we find a castle. I thought it meant that. You're my uncle king Arthur's right hand man, going said without looking at the night. Keisha Dema wrinkle look that it was because you're Arthur's right hand, man, Kei scoffed. That's you. That's you sound. It was rhetorical statement. Go Wayne of wish chimed in from behind them. If they were looking for some place for the night. There was always Carl's place. It was the castle of Carlisle going looked at K did he know of any night or no woman by the name of. What was it, sir Karl? Nope. Nope. The Bishop quickly corrected not, sir. Karl just Carl. He's not a nobleman or a night. It's just Carl k was confused. So he was just some guy. How did that work Bishop Baldwin shrugged? Well in that world is seem to be a line between the known and the unknown civilization in the wilderness. There was a weird otherworldly Britain. Like, you know, once you cross the line there. Giants green nights that can survive beheading lying best friends, and apparently the ability for just some guy named Karl have his own castle. Mo- gentlemen, welcome to the twilight zone, and that's actually doubly true because it's twilight and we'd. Really need to find a place to sleep going held up a hand. He'd had some experiences in the weirder. Parts of this island already tonight. He just wanted to sleep around a campfire in the forest and had back tomorrow. But as the thunder Wikus through the sky and sheet of rain pummeled down on them. Just as soon as go Wayne finished his sentence going found that he was outnumbered two to one Carl's place. It was with more light in cracks leading up the pouring rain. The trio looked at the castle glowing in the darkness ahead. They were it up to the gate, and as Gwen was about to knock the Bishop mentioned another just tiny detail that he had forgotten earlier. So every night that has ever gone into Carl's castle has died all eyes turn to the unbelievable Bishop. Yeah. He was really sorry. Didn't mention it earlier. He was just happy to be contributing K laughed. So what this was just some guy named Carl. They were K in going to the bravest knights in Christendom green and Bishop Baldwin looked each other Sharona glance that said about half of that statement was true go in and Bishop Baldwin looked at each other sharing a glance that set about half of that statement was true K continued saying that if this Carl tried anything they beat him to within an inch of his life and take his castle because they're the good guys going stared at K and picked up the hammer hanging on the chain to knock on the door. If Carl let them in and gave them food in bed for the night. They wouldn't touch him seriously. This was the middle ages in hospitality was still ridiculously important. Hey, guys. How can I help? You a Puerto greeted a few minutes later through tiny hatch from the other side of the door going bowed low before the man. Saying that he beseeched the Lord of this castle to give them shelter for the night. The porter scratched his forehead looking back to the castle side. They wanted him to talk to Karl look they'll like nice respectable nights. And all too is going to level with them. Carl Carl was not a nice guy, man. He didn't do courtesy your chivalry or anything like that. If they stayed the night there. They ran for a bad time and not like lumpy bed and still continental breakfast bad time. But the port will be dragging out their bodies in the morning bad time keeping his hand to his sword. Declaring that he wouldn't trade words with a porter anymore. It was raining. He was cold. He needed to go. Take their message to the Lord of the castle. Ooh. Once again, really feel like you're not hearing me here. He's not a lowered. I wouldn't call him a Lord within earshot. He's Carl and don't stab the messenger doesn't really have the same ring to it. Well, whatever. It's your literal funeral. I'm sorry. You've come here and by morning, you will be too with that the porter closed the hatch after a few moments. He L to the men of of the wall to raise the gate Carl had granted them his hospitality. G- Wayne k and Bishop Baldwin all handed off their horses to people who wouldn't meet there is if all the porter into the main hall as soon as there is just into the light they froze what what was that? There was a cheer face facing a fire a large high back chair, it was massive. And it was the least interesting thing about the room because flanking the chair and seated around the fire were four animals a full grown bull a bear a boar and a lion. When this all the visitors arrive there rushed them like an eager dog. Russia's a guest. Unfortunately, there were slightly different from an eager dog in that the Barron line were snarling. The bull was snorting and the boar was wedding his tusks against the floor. To sharpen them for the kill immediately. The Bishop prayed goin- ready to sort the last fight of his entire life and K also Ray disordered, but bravely took a half step behind going that was one of boomed from the fire down down get back when the animals heard the sound of that voice, they instantly broken terror way from the guests and bolted nearby tables were they coward and tear way from the one who rose by the fire. Hey, sorry. I'm training them not to jump up, and you know, mall, guests said the formidable silhouette walking toward them. And why are you kneeling who told you to kneel the bishops slapped Wayne in the back? Why was going kneeling this guy? Not being a nobleman was his whole thing. And as going and Bishop Baldwin's is met Carl's, they realized that maybe being a twelve foot tall. Wall of muscle might also be as thing Carl urge. Going to stand. He lodged with no nobleman tonight. He would receive no courtesy except Ruffy and courtesy here and porter seriously. Why are you still standing there? The first pet charged thing was your cue, go get the wine. That's when k go Wayne and Bishop Baldwin looked at the wind being carted out in four Goblets. The held about four gallons of wine. Each Carl stared at the porter really four gallons. What was this a drink for ants? Get the good one his normal one as fast as they could the servants wheeled Carl's normal nine gallon goblet out he picked it up with one hand and told his guest, please drink up going stared at the sea of wine before him. Could you get like a straw or something? No, cool. He was looking forward to Rooney his shirt with a four gallon bucket of wine anyway, while they awkwardly drank together Bishop Baldwin excuse. Himself to go check on his horse. It wasn't three minutes before they heard a slap and a Winnie and then the Bishop returned with a furrowed brow. He couldn't believe it the full of a commoner eating next to his horse. He was the Bishop of Great Britain Carl put down his wind big gulp and calmly walked over to the Bishop Carl had heard a slap in a Winnie. What had the Bishop Dunn Bishop Baldwin looked up into the eyes of the man who was over twice as height the horse of a commoner didn't get to eat next to the horse of a Bishop. So he corrected the error. He'd opened the door to the stables and slapped the horse to get into runoff. Carl pursed his lips. All right. Well, a slap verse lap. Then he raised his hand above his head. But the Bishop begged to stop he was a man of God Carl's is grew wide. Then act like one can't just put down his goblet when a slap landed with enough force to knock the Bishop out. Going ran to the Bishop who's out cold in the stone floor K winced. Yeah. That's really bad for you. Then a more alarming thought than an elderly Bishop getting a concussion and dropping to a stone floor came to mind, his horse, his horse might be eating next to that of a lowly commoner like Karl he rose. An also ran to the stables while Carl was presuming his nine gallon drink and going was dragging the Bishop to one of the couches without an apex predator hiding underneath it Carl heard another slap in a snort from outside K came in smiling and smugly brushed off his hands done and done. Get this Carl's cold Carl's have been eating alongside his Steed took care of that. As the twelve foot tall Carl Rosen loomed over K K laughed in his face. What was this commoner this wannabe, Laura? Gonna do with k king Arthur's Senegal slap him. No Carl replied without warning the commoners left hook came in strong K to drop like a sack of potatoes to the stone. Going dragged his will friend will be a strong word for K. Let's say he dragged his work acquaintance to the couch next to the Bishop and left to check on the horses. Carl flexed his knuckles readying himself for the next time. But going to a lot longer when Carl finally went out looking for him. He was in the stable soaking wet feeding hate the panicked full and the angry Colt that he had gone onto the storm to find. When he saw Carl watching him as he made his way back to the main hall going nodded and went to go help as friends.

Can the Bishop both awake? After having the taste slapped out of their mouth by burly commoner had a couple of different takes on what happened. The Bishop used the helpful instruction by means. The back of the Carl's hand to rethink some of his preconceived notions on class. K however yawned after a long day of rioting and the equivalent of a couple of bottles of wine from the VAT, he said, he just took an impromptu nap because tina's he was king Arthur's cynical and a famous Knight. No other explanation really made sense to him certainly not that he had been knocked out cold in one punch from a commoner though. Hey dinner as k wiggle the tooth in his mouth and staggered to the table. He took a seat next to one of the most beautiful woman hit ever seen. He introduced himself as Circe the Senate show king. Arthur the king who ruled over these lands, she introduced herself as MRs Carl now if I had just woken up after being hit by twelve foot tall guy. I would probably not hit on his wife. Or insult him, especially as he sat across the table from me but Kay had another idea. He was going to do both of those things at once. He said it was too bad. That this lovely lady was shackled such a fiend going face pond from the edge of the room and Carl stood ominously. Why was going not coming to dinner? Did he like his two friends think that he was too good for Carl's table going side? It wasn't that. He didn't take a seat because he couldn't he hadn't been asked to the table by the law by the master of the house, Carl smiled, always with courtesy. This one Carlton follow it. But he knew it as the commoner strode over to Wayne he asked about courtesy if the master of the house asked you to do something you had to do it. Correct. Going looked at K and Bishop Baldwin who despite their splitting headaches were digging into an awesome meal and barely paying attention. Gwen look back to. Carl. Yeah. That was the rule Carl snap is fingers. And the porter came in with a spear and placed it in goings hands Carl going to hit him stem back by the door that led to the buttery and throw the spiritus face with that came Baldwin stopped eating, and they were now paying close attention to go Wayne and Carl with his black guy and fat lip K was egging going on Bishop Baldwin though, we have been hit was a man of God, it wouldn't condone such wanton violence. But yeah, yeah. Going should totally do it. Choline nodded. He was a guest in this man's house. So logic, obviously, followed that he should throw a spirit the man's face. Still after K Baldwin's treatment up to this point going. Couldn't imagine what was in store for him. After throwing a spear through Carl's face. He stood his back to the buttery door, which by the way was door to the room rumor they kept food for guests and not a buttery door going. On Carl's grinning face poise the spear and through stories conflict on what exactly happened next some say that the spear stuck in Carl's face, but he just pulled it out. It was fine. Others say that he dodged the spear and shattered on the wall. The main text following doesn't explicitly say anything it says that goin- accurately through the spirit Carl said and the spear shattered on the stones behind him given that a shatters. I don't think it makes sense to have it sticking Carl's headed all. And I don't want Wayne K to think he some sort of allusion. So we're just going to go with him dodging the spirit at the last possible moment so Cam Baldwin a bit disappointed. Not to see a man impelled by a spear to the face of her dinner went back to their food. Carl snapped his fingers and several servants immediately appeared to click the spirits, the host finally invited going dinner asking him to sit down next to him and across from his wife going was a more tactful night than K, but he also shared the man's feelings toward the woman. She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. He was so enraptured by her beauty that he blinked and the servants were clearing the table. Guedes? Cheeks grew read a square noticed Carlson. Go Wayne stern at Carl's wife. Sinister. Sweet Carl said musing allowable leaning back in front of an empty plate. But she's mine leaves such thoughts and drink your wine night. You will not have her Guedes face lit up with shame. Oh, no. No, no. It wasn't like that. But she was beautiful, of course. But he wasn't thinking Carl slapped on the back. Of course, he wasn't. And of course, he wasn't. He turned to the door and bellowed music now, a younger girl, probably around seventeen or eighteen arrived in the room and bowed to Carl and the nights. She looked a lot like Carl's wife, but younger she began plucking harp. And singing a song about the glory of king Arthur's court and the five dinner attendees, listen, dawn, K was the first one. Mr. ninety Naf, and then Baldwin it might have been the meal or the wine or the music, but it was time for bed in Carl stood. He helped booth men to their feet and love the visitors down the long corridor came Baldwin walked straight into their small simple rooms, thank you about nothing. But collapsing on the soft beds going, however, was weary. This house was stranger than ever. And this Carl he was monstrous as he walked deeper into the castle. Go Wayne wondered, what horrors this night held wait. This is my room going asked studying the massive golden crested, suite with tapestries and rape before the bed was a couch draped with a gold cloth. Carl laughed as he pushed go Wayne in. No, this was Carl's room the door closed behind him going looked at Carl nervously. What was going on Karl didn't look back but instead stood smiling? He nodded toward the bed to his wife lane. There waiting going reiterated. Seriously, what was going on to Squires came from a hidden side room and wordlessly unday goings armor when it was off. They also took off his clothes standing there. And whatever the medieval equivalent of underwear was he asked Carl for third time. What was going on Karl said simply that he wanted to go in and take his wife into his arms and kiss her now while he watched going looked at Karl who was quite serious. He looked at MRs Carl who with a nod was beckoning him to bed g- Wayne had expected. A medieval house of horrors, not a couple who is into you know, whatever this was he pretty much expected. He might have to fight Carl before the night was through anyway. So we might as well spend some time in the arms of beautiful woman before he had to do. So with a nod Gohain bow before Carl saying that his bidding would be done have no fear. Go Wayne dropped the rest of his clothes and. Jumped into bed. We usually don't get graphic with these sorts of scenes, and this is no exception. But the story informs us that go Wayne and MRs Carl kissed for a long time when things were about to get well more intimate Carl stood from the gold clothe couch making a timeout tea with his hands. All right. All right. Good game guys Carl's wife immediately rap sheets around her body and sat up in bed with her husband going sat up to wait. What they were just about to. Yup. Carl said Gwen looked at MRs Carl who does not a plainly, and they weren't going to. Nope. Carl said going looked at both of them. Okay. So what should he do? Now, Carl rose and immediately went all Gandalf, filling the room with his back to the fire. So we seem to glow like a demon. What should go Wayne do? Now, go Wayne should die. But then Carl burst out laughing. That just getting they Honey you ready. Well, Karl had been threatening going. Mrs Carla been putting a robe on dip. She was ready as Carl and his wife walked toward the door. Carl shared that going could have his room for the night, though. And there was something else. His wife was in in his power to give away. He wasn't king Mark of Cornwall. Ooh. But he could give going someone that wasn't as power to give he wrapped on the door. And it opened from the other side the girl from dinner the harp player. Walked in Carl said that this was his daughter. They had already talked it over and she wished to spend the night with the famous, sir. Go Wayne of Camelot nephew of king. Arthur Carl asked if that was a sufficient replacement for his wife with a grin as he took Carl's daughter into his arms. He said that it was Carl closed the doors. The pair began the kiss. Are kind of a contradiction chastity in some places is a nightly virtue. But the writers will the writers. No what sells from LANCELOT and Gwen aveer. Arthur more Goss to Tristan nice old. They're not above throwing chastity out the window. I think that's what they're doing here because as opposed to other works and their obsession with virginity improper behavior. Remember, the nice pain swords between themselves on woman sleeping in the same bed for images sake. The story just kinda puts it out there. The goin- and Carl's daughter had a native no strings attached fun in the morning going asked the young woman when he was gonna see her again, and she just laughed. It's kind of a shockingly modern series of events for work from the twelfth century. But hey, I guess what happens in weird otherworldly? Great Britain stays in weird otherworldly, Great Britain. Anyway, going came Bishop Baldwin at breakfast the next morning after the whole household went to mass understandably came the Bishop were eager to get back on the road to Camelot after all their time in the. Strange land had resulted in little more than humiliation and late brain damage. They were so close to getting out of there something that according to the stories at this place should have been impossible Carl stood from the table and announced they would depart with his blessing, no less, but first he wanted to show them something came Baldwin were wary. The coin set cautiously optimistic on the whole he had had a pretty good trip. So far that is until he saw Carl's murder room. It was a deserted building on the edge of his little town. The shutters were closed and thick cobwebs grip. The corners of each window and door Carl turned the key opened the door and thick dead. Stench port from the room Carl duck does he entered and beckoned his guests inside going and KRA at their hands on their swords with Baldwin tucked safely behind them. When Carl laughed they weren't in any danger anymore. It was over they had passed the test hand still on their swords go Wayne and Kate entered the room the floor was reddish Brown with it. That was paint or blood was too difficult to say at this point piled from floor ceiling in some places where the bones of those with stay before Chateau to Carl blitstein tunics with symbols of every sort fluttered in the rare breeze that pass through the room Carl sat down and top one pile of bones saying that he will he and his for animals had done all this. It was twenty winters ago. Twenty winters that he made a vow before God, it was a hasty vow. But it was a binding one. He vowed that no man should spend a night in his castle. Unless he did everything Carl asked him to do or else he will be killed until last night until going no night had survived the pledge. But now he would have been in the custom and all men will be welcome in his home going bowed, low before Carl saying that this was the just magnanimous decision Carl smiled it was because he finally found in night that lived his code of honor to the point that he would throw spiritus face and sleep with his wife Kay nodded. He was proud of going for doing ever, wait. What Karl continued for the sake of all these men who laid their slain he will build a church on the spot and provide for ten priests singing prayers for their souls until doomsday going nodded. It was kind of. Spotty consolation prize for not being alive. But sure those good enough well last they returned to their horses. They found them each Laden with gold enrich tapestries next to goin- source said another writer on a pal Frey. It was Karl's daughter. Let's say that Karl talked it over with her a painter consent. And she was now offering to marry sir Wayne go Wayne happily accepted and the four road off together when they met up with king. Arthur that afternoon, they told him the story of Carl and his castle and King Arthur decided that he had to go meet this man for himself with his retinue in tow Arthur found Carl to be kind and gracious host and Carl readily consented to be a Knight of king Arthur's court. He was dubbed Lord Carl of Carlisle, and he became one of the knights of the round table Sircar Lyle as he was called did construct a church the one that he promised. In addition of funding, ten months to say prayers there in perpetuity that churches supposedly the church of Carlisle. And it's still stands to this day. This is a fun story in kind of represents a conquest of sorts for Arthur, Arthur is extending his rule over the wild and strange lands that even though they're also in Great Britain, always represent some sort of other place, some quick points. This marriage of going is not canon for our podcast. He is a much more entertaining marriage story, whereas wife, actually has a name that one's insert Thomas. Mallory in the more, Arthur, and that's the one we're going to be going with also if you have any familiarity with Great Britain at all, you know, that Cardiff in Wales is like three hundred miles from Carlisle. So it's kind of a long trek for two nights in a Bishop to make in one go also full disclosure. I read one source for Carl was referred to as Carl. But in most places, he's referred to as the Carl with Carl being another name for a turtle which is another name for like a rube peasant. It was simpler and more fun. Refer to him as Carl instead of the Carl next week. We're back in Irish mythology with more stories of coup. Colon who finds love and fairyland. The only issue is that he's already married and his wife and her posse of armed women aren't taking his infidelity lightly. The creature this week is star monkey from Kenya. Like the creature last time this one is bound to a which is they're familiar a familiar spirit that's friendly to which helps them out with their magic. It's usually made or conjured by the witch and can take many forms. The star monkey called the mundane is like a large wide monkey whose body is covered in orange for it has pointed ears a narrow head dark slid. It is and because we all wonder how well endowed mythological creatures are the answer to that question for the star. Monkey is very it's a long and serpentine. You're wondering I'm not exactly sure what that means. But I am very sure that I don't wanna Google it. The star monkey knows magic. But it specialties poisons to fight the witches enemies, it will often sneak in the houses, which you can do pretty easily as it can turn invisible. And it'll poison the whole household the poisonous carried through the air. So one drop on the floor should do it. I'm quickly learning that you shouldn't make enemies out of folklore witches. The star monkey loves a glass of warm milk or a glass of warm blood, and they will get either from cows often blamed for mysterious illnesses, no surprise there. And if you want to keep them away keeping iron bars in your house is a good way to keep mythological creatures away in general or with this one you can get a witch doctor who can make a magical trap to catch it paralyze it and remove its powers. If you see the helpless star monkey cotton a trap you should under. No circumstances say, oh, hey it worked because not only is that obvious. But then you'll immediately be proven wrong. And because of your words the will break in you'll have an angry invisible. Monkey running around your house. There are some more recent and equally reasonable stories about the star monkey going around that it isn't the witches familiar, but a race of aliens that I guess didn't get their animal disguises completely right? Apparently, they've come down to whom pregnant women and create a race of alien human hybrids, because I guess they saw the X files and thought that sounded like a cool idea. The way to avoid them as just by not sleeping on the floor. There. That's all you need to thwart an alien invasion of evil poison monkeys. That's it for this week myths and legends is by Jason and Chris wiser art theme songs by the band broke for free. Then the creature the week music is by Steve combs, their links to even more music in the Shonno's. Thank you so much for listening, and I'll see you next time.

It was it was joe tests Monday night football. Football's Joe Tacit tour and wriggle. And then they would try steph curry out for about five minutes. Every episode put booger on that show. Watch it every day. What about the Lego Masters Show? Have you watched that yet? I want to. I got into some Lego action. This weekend fellas would you bill okay so I texted you yesterday and I I went to a pristine nineteen ninety-five vintage barnes and noble. I mean this is just one of the gigantic Barnes and noble stores. You know full coffee shop full. Everything just remind me of the nineties and while I was there got one of the lego architecture. Kids Hell Yeah. You know like you build skit city skylines or whatever. So you can do legos. But you don't feel so much Bad about it because it's a it's a elevated former. Lego and I got the Tokyo Kit Ni- Tokyo last night and this morning. It's very therapeutic. I I quite enjoy it. It looks neither you're GONNA do Indianapolis or something. You hear the salesforce tower. Haven't made that one yet. Yeah here's the key bank tower. I forget what it's called now. Here's the W. Mary it. You're you're describing the skyline into Indianapolis and this is scary Lee accurate detail. Here's the three hundred North Meridian ear at here for you in the Lego architecture kit. Yeah wouldn't know it it'd be it'd be like Lucas Oil Stadium soldiers and Sailors Monument key bank tower. Whatever it's called now and then be saying almost yes. Yes enormous down. The that'd be the last thing on almost any time you want. Your family feud survey answer. Yeah so there's there's two answers to this but I believe one is the more correct one is that there is a. They outsource their surveys. Would you watch McMillan's McDonald's? Monopoly outsourcing bad idea. Apparently but I don't think raking these is that big of a deal but the outsource them if you get the phone call. You're not told for. Family feud no. You're answering for like yeah. It's like the questions around but then there's someone else who apparently claims that it's a studio audience. So there's a little bit of a dispute but it's Gallup Gallop doing that Gal also important polls and then they're also calling people for family future too and they say two questions who are you voting Democratic primary also named one thing. You would not want your wife to find in your in your glovebox on Valentine's Day a gun and Roman. Swipe we are. We haven't talked about food product. I feel like in a while and by that I mean we probably did last episode but I. I didn't know this was a thing this commercial aired over the weekend. Have you guys heard about the Papa? D. IS AT PAPA. John's no no John's is making pizza. Case DS called Papa. D. is sandwich all delicious. They say here. Yeah that sounds great. I live from Papa. John's but not from Papa. John's let me be very clear about that. I love this in theory. Just not from them. Cough Adidas those look good. It's like a like a council open face cows zone. It is like a pizza folded in half. It's called Pizza New York Papa. John's new flapper-style sandwiches made from original. Fresh are real meats veggies and cheese. Did you guys hear that Papa? John admitted that he didn't eat thirty to forty pizzas complete lie. Yeah eight FORTY PIZZAS AND THIRTY S. He said he didn't eat them. He had them yeah. I believe that. That's what I thought he did. It needs you sitting in the Papa Cave underneath his house outside of Louisville Kentucky you know fifty broker in Casarini. Pass Afghanistan the the Papa Bunker in Jeffersonville Indiana with his arm centuries and he was ordering pizzas like every day and a half or not actually every three fourths of a day or whatever. The math comes out to to take a slice and just try it just cue just quality control it just to just to see how everything was going so. I didn't. I never imagined him crushing forty pizzas. But but who says if you said your you had something would you like especially in the Food Context? Would you say your us up to describe inspecting something or eating it? I agree. I think it's highly disappointing. Papa John didn't just slap just slammed pizzas the time I mean. Yeah if if trill if you said Hey I just had panda express and and an hour later. You're like Hey I'm hungry. You guys WANNA go eat. We were like why. Are you just ate panting like no? I just had an spent or as like I got a buck is a bucket of Popeye's chicken every night and it turns out I was just eating one breast from it. No not even eating it though you're inspecting it because he didn't say eat. He said he didn't eat at all so he's not testing period. He's just looking at it and keeping it out and do you remember when nobody asked questions about the Papa. He was just the guy in the box. The drug guy in the final four. I'll tell you what that and then now people saw those pictures. Start getting into it now. People are asking a lot of question about the Papa. I'll tell you what if you want a good very light. Laugh not the funniest thing in the world but I chuckle around my seat because I now fall on instagram. He people will comment on his instagram. And BE LIKE PAPA. Love you big Fan loved Papa. John's can you give me a papa? Bless in reply with Hashtag Papa Bliss Bush and he gives them a pop up less and he he thing right he. He productions out enough pronouncing it right. H three three. Yeah I think. Yeah they The voice modulation thing. They did to him in his interview they did. I mean he's not somebody can do dirty not a great guy but that was very funny because he's like he was like monster. Oh you sound like Buffalo. Bill from silence is funny. That people believe that because like he'd been in commercials for so many years. Better Ingredients Better Pizza Papa. John's Papa John's yeah but then all of a sudden we were like kind of tricked into believing. He had the deepest voice in the history of humans. Thought maybe like we were reversed like trick. I thought for a second. Maybe every commercial they've been reverse modulating his voice and this was finally his real voice making him seem more approachable and relatable top ten anime patrols when he showed up on the University of Kentucky sidelines wearing UK apparel. Yeah through after years of Hanging up money for his company to sponsor the Football Stadium at U of l being patrons the URL football and basketball programs. Which by the way Innocent give back the twenty thirteen title. Just give them back. It's just not getting this whole stripping title thing and then he shows up UK apparel. Where's the loyalty? So I duNNo Papa. John I'm excited to see what his next move is reckoning. Op Ed. I believe there's Dave reckoning coming. I believe it's coming out. I don't know in what form like. I don't know what format but I think he's a man of his word. Sit Up a Tactical Nuclear Pizza Hut Headquarters. I know is if you end up getting Papa Dea cleese tweet at US tag us at Lights Kampot. I mean I'm going to get it so you have to worry about it. Okay that's fair. It looks okay but like why way by get a pizza like and it's not a long term thing that's not going to catch on. That's a that's a very limited time the short-term product to get people talking about your brand. I think that's very smart but that's not a sustainable menu item in my opinion. Where would you think that Pizza Hut is headquartered. They're headquartered while there If you had to guess their Dallas well yeah it's close. It's Plano amount of pronouncing PLANO's a suburb of Dallas. Because yeah because yum the overall yom is a I think they're headquartered in Kentucky and then Taco Bells and California Pizza Hut's in Dallas Taco Bells Irvine. Yeah what's the what's the other one? What's the other KFC? Titles though Casey I believe long John Silvers as part of that. I think I thought long John sold them off.

How ABOUT WES? Anderson was Anderson is back with a trailer for his newest movie called the French dispatch and it is one of the most wes anderson movies. I've ever seen at least trailers. Yeah hit so many tropes and I'll just read again honest trailers. I their best video. Is there wes Anderson visibility a breakdown all the things that happened in movies. It's a hilarious video. I highly suggest you guys launch Symmetrical shots overhead shot of objects shots of typewritten letters. You see a typewriter happening so that's going to happen. Characters explaining elaborate plans Whimsical names we already said like J K L Berenson Lucinda. Clements old tiny telephones moving vehicles. Smoking Timothy Xiaomei Smoking. It's the most West Anderson Person Alive. I think A Wilson Brothers. In Old Wilson tiny motorcycles profile shots miniatures and models and much more the French dispatch which has described a love letter to journalists an outpost at American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century. French city and stars beneath. They'll Toro Adrian. Brodie tells US win. Leah's to do France mcdormand Timothy. Shell May Jeffrey Right Dole. Murray Owen Wilson Schreiber Elizabeth Moss. Edward Norton Willem Defoe Sir Sharoni Kristof vaults And I mean Rupert Friend. Henry Winkler Balabagn Anjelica. Huston list goes on and on. It's kind of insane and I thought the trailer was was wonderful. It gives me a lot of. It has a lot of similar vibes. I would say in terms of like story and pacing and the tone To fantastic Mr Fox. Because there was like an explosion in it. And that's the reason I'm saying that but that's just kind of the VIBE. I was right or wrong. I guess I guess we'll see I wes Anderson. It's its own genre at this point. He owns like what would John or is. This movie's Wes Anderson had to describe it. Because you're watching it and you're like okay. Well there's a symmetrical shut there's a symmetrical shot and that's what you want. So I'm I'm I'm I'm excited for this. I I always lake now. I always like to take some kind of these lake idyllic fantasy periods and time that probably never existed other than in the you know through the lens of the Algebra in longing to actually have been alive at that time I felt like midnight in Paris was kind of like that. Not Anderson movie obviously But it was just. Yeah They Twentieth Century. That sort of deal with Having those sort of characters in place like The dialogue the snappy dialogue and the Timothy. Shell may smoking in the bill. Murray being a gruff no-nonsense journalists type guy with no crying sign above the office on his door. These all seemed like very wes Anderson things in I'm aboard for I enjoyed it a. I think that I've criticized was Anderson in the past for being wes Anderson and at this point I'm I'm just accepting a the fact that he does his own thing and I think that's very respective Very much an artist's visual artists to think if you if you vibe with this shit you really vibe with it but I think if you don't you really don't You know what I mean. It's not really polarizing as a director but I think that that the people that enjoy it really do like it but I think there's a larger subject or group that doesn't I think the problem with Wes Anderson like a at least kind of win at post rush more when I was a teen to early twenties and You know a Royal Tenenbaums to the folks who got into Wes Anderson. Where like the Proto hipster crowd? I hate using the word hipster because now it's not composting thing to describe a area of town with the Worby. Parker in it which is not what it was back in the early two thousands when it met you smoke. Jerem desire milds in And Whatnot and I think like the people talked about Wes Anderson like it was some sort of like high art type stuff. You may perceive it to be that way. Sure but I think now I've come to accept that like generally I don't feel like there's a deeper meaning and if there is maybe I'm too stupid to pick up on it but I think a lot of it is just kind of the simple enjoyment of the whimsical Settings and the the whimsical characters he puts on the screen. And I don't try to over analyze though. That's what I mean. Yeah I think it's that's what I kind of enjoy about the movies of his that I like is that when our as long as they don't have to think about it too much of an extended just kind of sit there along for the ride and half and again the one thing. I'm hoping going into French. Dispatches I hope he genuinely uses this all star cast. He doesn't pull a sneaky one on us again with Like you do without dogs which again I found to be very disappointing but more I I notice people saying that they actually read that one which is to me a little surprising but teach their own. I think again. We talked about the last week or last episode. Part of it is. It is incredibly easy fair. Not Maybe unfair to compare it to fantastic Mr Fox because of the animation and the type of movie that it is and I i. I've not objectively speaking. You can have any opinion on this but I very much have a strong opinion. That I'll finance Minster Fox's just Leagues Better Than Dogs just a better movie I thought and makes me Kinda WanNa Watch. You watched in a while. Fantastic movie great. Voice cast creative funny and again has that kind of upbeat fast in your face pacing back. I felt like Iowa dogs did not have and while I know the story was a bit different in lent to a bit of a more somber pace at times. They're on a deserted island. I think I I think it kind of detracted from it. I feel like this one has a bit more fantastic or Fox type pace story so excited for it again like you said what's his own. It's on Johner this point so the one of those things. Where if you like? You said Kenji either going to really like it or just going to be like. Shit isn't for me. The good part though about this trailer is I have no idea what this movie is about. It's much short stories too or something. We'll know a general framework for the setting and who the characters are right with the whole journalist thing but I have no idea of kind of like the chapter parts and how everything ties together assuming everything we'll tida gay not because yeah because you had You know what he did with the Darjeeling Limited was there was like a Paris section. That like I think aired before after the movie with I think it was Natalie Portman and I forgive is like Adrien Brody's character which I think like kind of set it up but I don't know if there's going to be an arc to all these short stories or if they're going to be like vignettes of The setting and and I think it's cool not really knowing what year from trailer because there was some noteworthy shot. Where if I was following the wheelchair in the wheelchair was in the middle of the frame that was specifically intriguing to me when I pictured journalists and Pears in the twentieth century says not really it so out it. Get to that point. I want to know more maybe We get a little busters scruggs action in Buster scruggs. Not being a wes Anderson character name is an alltime upset. Yeah yeah it is a very west Anderson Character. Name really to me. It's and it's not fancy enough for wes. Anderson could definitely see a bill. Murray character named Buster scruggs. I don't know what's Anderson Characters. Names Lake Lake Italy digital pot like a kiss. Cassandra Cassandra Ellwood or owned Wilson's character in the frontispiece. Herb Saint Sazak upshur CLAMPITT. That's another character from Boris Shamans. Are There Howitzer Junior? Those are the Guardians of who? You're listening. I like how Jeffrey Wright certaines aerobic right. He's like yeah. I don't have a last name for you. Just keep keep your last name seen Jeffrey Wright without facial hair really fun. I haven't seen him without a beard long time. I just lost casino out to know he has like a some would call it some fuss no or no. Does Harry sick geared in that. Yes I think it might be just not anyway. We'll just keep talking about James Bond. Billy Irish released her track for no time to die titled Not-i'm today Was Released on the thirteenth couple of days ago You know it's music. I don't know where to begin. I guess we can't do music. We don't have a fucker talk. Or what did you think trill track? No I thought it was solid. I thought it was actually thought it was good. I enjoyed it. I think it sounds like the end of this era right. It sounds like the end of something wrong does so. I'M NOT SAYING JAMES. Bond will die but I think it definitely fits in with the tone of the final Daniel Craig James Bond movie and it's miles ahead of Specter which again I think Sam Smith writings on the wall. Sam Smith the. They are very talented but that song in particular. I didn't really vibe with all that much whereas this one it sounds like Billy Irish song with James Bond Cues throughout which I think Ken Jack didn't really like but I be. It's gotTa have some of that. No that was my only I guess got an issue with it like I really really liked the song but it felt like throughout it kept trying to remind you like yet James Bond Song. There's nothing wrong with that but I was hoping they were going to live. Give her a little more free reign to do something on these a little more original when it gets. That's not really what James Bond is sort of all about. It's more about the classics. Yeah I like the I'd say I like the silent love it and I. I also reserve that. I gotTa see movie to. The show just came on called Zoe. Extraordinary play yeah. What's his face as Schuyler Ashton's in it for yeah perfect but it was just watching the show and she was in this. Mri machine and went. Haywire I guess this is a pilot. Yeah her life. Basically is is a is played out through musicals and songs. She hears music in her head. And that's how she sees life conferred enjoy. I'm some yeah I don't know I like. I like the back third of the song or back half of the song but I think I have to reserve Fokker teak until I see it in the movie. I think that's the most important thing if it fits in the move. It's the tone of the intro and the cool visuals and I. I think I'll I'll like it more but but for for we're here now say like it. We've Elliott that big reveal last week out of nowhere. Kinda honestly completely stole the thunder from the billionth song drop. It happened about an hour before the the bond songs and this is all people talked about They finally teased the robber patents and bat suit for the first time they did it in a very dark dark. Red Room. type thing so it's hard to see people really bring up and got a good look at the at a mask at the suit. Apparently the reason this happened is because they're going to start filming outside and we have always said especially shes. Am Get out ahead of it. Make your own narrative and so they wanted to release something before people started taking our Paparazzi photos or people were in the area and they jumped over a fence. I got to see shadow so they control. The narrative showed the suit. I probably a good idea. Because a suit is very homemade. It's a very early homemade. Batman suits like its first suit. So it's GonNa look like Shit. It's got a lot of vibes to the original Spiderman. Suits right the suits that appear. Parker I wears. He makes an interesting note debate about this if you read. The tea leaves though Kevin Smith kind of called. This talked about very happy about it. I guess he's friends with Matt. Reeves and and people were speculating. He knows that the bat emblem on the soup seems to potentially have been made out of the guns out of a gun a gun. Cotton HALF SO PEOPLE ARE SAYING. Is that the gun killed his parents and again it was. There's a lot of questions. And then the more Kevin Smith started celebrating. If you're like all right Kevin Smith probably fucking knows something here like it's like it seems kind of obvious. He's he's not like bragging that he knows but he's he's again celebrating as if this was something he discussed with that reason. This is just what he knows. I I don't know if I like the gun thing is i. Don't know if I can articulate. Why don't but it seems a bit on the nose yet. Then again. Batman itself is very on the nose. I'll tell you how. `Bout this can I give you hypothetical? Yes what if the guns is the way? They explained his parents being killed for once. We don't actually fucking sees parents being now. We're going to start. Come on. Come on get the fuck out here. That's that's that's the press. Basically you have to have that right yeah. I can't get enough of that particular scenario. What if this time? He liked drops an acme anvil on them. We even saw joker. That's the funniest. Even things loosely connected to Batman. They're like regatta. Show now we gotTA show it just like. Hey guys get this. You know this this This version of the joker. He incited this. So isn't that funny and And this one the one His parents are going to get killed by giant Cartoon Mallet. It's going to stop them. It's going to be a big acme rocket just fires into a piano drops from the roof. I think the suit looks cool though Robbie extra point of this Saturday look the Arkham version of a little bit with the gun thing. I think that's ready to sell things going to be cool and dark and hopefully a little bit like different something new and I'm down for it and also I think visually look very interesting like As far as like the setup. No it's just whatever teaser but they did the same shit with joker When Todd folks release that one little like two second clip of him in a suit test look dope and I liked the Michael J. Keno stores score behind. It all sounded fucking cool. He's going make a great score. Yeah it definitely gone back to. Jeff's point makes more sense just to control the first release with something that looks good rather than getting some galaxy note camera through a barb wire fence lectures looks like shit because it just you know his stuff looks stupid. When it's not on film. I thought I thought our pets good though I mean definitely we talked about that Joe Line before that's a that's that man jaw line for sure big. Batmans y'all line and I like the suit because I think it's it fits him. Well you know. I don't think everybody's played. Batman is necessarily been a fucking bodybuilder but Christian. Bale definitely put on some poundage for it And I think Val kilmer and George Clooney look at least a little bit. Bigger UNSCREENED and Robert Pattinson is looked as I've always perceived as a slender guide out saying there can't be a slender. Batman can't be a slim Batman Kazaa like Batman. Beyond Batman GonNa didn't but I think this looks good on him. I I like the I like the modernisation handed kind of the Triangular looking plating on it and it. Looks Neat. It will be interesting to see that first to see how it looks in action. If we get that at all. It's also I. I want to note something I like. I think it was cool. Like I like the idea of a different Bamut. Young Batmans can be the early edition of a suit. He makes his home. I'd I think you're gonNA see a different suit in this movie. Yeah I think you're GONNA see a final suit right like I don't think this is the final Batman who like that'd be shocking. Because like I don't know that you're gonNA see Progression of the Batman character here Like we saw that with you know I know. Captain Marvel had a bit of that. I don't think one or did I know I think early captain America's stuff people like you're going to see in eventual change in Su So for me. It doesn't like I mean I don't have a quote unquote concerns or anything. I I think by the end of the movie. You're GONNA see like the official new Batman suit Version he's wearing shorts from the top. It's the bat suit but from the bottom. It's just cargo. Shorts ones still working on it. But the cargo pant legs. Yeah well. Yeah but the cargo pockets functional. The story like his pro batterings which are like essentially just fidget spinners and The also has those little Firecrackers they the snappers has some of those. Yeah Yeah you know what I really WanNa see us the other like the new villains because we have a giant list of films still have Andy Circuses. Pennyworth of conferral was penguin Zoe Kravitz cat-woman Paul de Ridler. Like there's so many characters in this. Oh and Jeff and Who also missing Think John Boy John. Carman carmine Falcone's coconino pronouncing Batman begins. I forget coney I thought coney but yeah we have a whole bunch of other characters still on the list and I want to see how they look. I'm pumped I know I I'm excited I. I'm ready for new Batman. It's been too long. It's been five years right. Just absolutely no fucking reason that in the middle of the comic book movie boom that Man Soup matter on the fucking sidelines for the most part actually in verse Superman give respect it just like right like it's really fucked. Just review that suit the two most popular characters alongside Spiderman and. They're just for the most most on the sidelines. Spiderman and iron man for like a hundred years feels like and like scraping away to get Batman and may not see Superman for awhile so good to see it happen. Just it's valid need some This one you guys can veto and say move on. That's a stranger things for teas that came out. There's nothing to it I do. I I mean hyper alive I gotta wonder I gotTa wonder if this is the last one I get I mean I i. I don't think it will be the last one. I'm going to call it now though. I think this is the last season millie. Bobby Brown's GonNa do. I think I think she's on a bigger things I think thin will to let me. Just tell me hedge my bet one of the two. We're GONNA leave after this season. I like the way the last season to them getting. Outta Hawkins but then to to pull fast one and then reveal that the the guy everybody loves is actually back in the teaser. I that's a teaser. Devotees right there but also kind of like a betrayal of the audience. Kind of like fuck you hide nothing matters. Fuck you. That's how I feel about. People Have Long said there are no stakes and stranger things. It's the same thing happens. Every ceiling eleven lacks out. Does the euro thing in new new season? Move on again. He's first season. If it ended up to the first season I think it would go down as one of the better television shows like probably like the twenty tens or something or at least better seasons of television in the in the two thousand ten and now I feel like they're just they're milking a little bit. I know people like last The last couple of seasons whatever but not for me I think net net flix is milking it. 'cause it's probably the biggest opportunity they got so I understand it from that standpoint. I've always felt like stranger things. It's more of a vibe show than it is a story driven people tune in for the setting they tune in for the time period. They tune in for the. Oh Maggio's to Eighties Horror Eighty science fiction and Also the music to soundtracks been very good as well always great soundtrack. Yeah I was great soundtrack. And it's always been has always been one of those things that nobody ever talks about immediately after the the the wraps up and they talk about for a day. But there's no there's no feverish discussion on stranger things. I think that is the proportion to other shows that have gotten as big as that one That's very kind of into it. Because they're it's like a chill hang. Well it's a funny alternate when you compare it to sleep man delorean Laurean or the weekly release at like. I feel like people would have talked about it. More have been stretched out over a longer time period. Whether that's what everyone wants or not I don't know do people want Qube. Maybe they won't Qube. Maybe they want ten minute episodes but I think we've talked about it. I think the release schedule and how they're how they do it with stranger. Things is a big reason why the people want to see this. We put the trailer out. A lot of people freaked out over it but I think we saw the last season. Jakarta came and went really quickly. I think part of the two is. It almost feels like they keep moving the goal posts with the show. So it's hard to speculate because they're just like Oh okay. Well there's there's another monster guess bigger monster or whatever But a lot of shows do that. I think that's why that's why people talked about game of thrones so much because they knew there was a definitive end. They knew there was a finite Amount of mileage. You could get out certain things and you know. It didn't end the way people wanted but like something like this. There's there's no definitive end. There's just like however long they can keep making money off of it. They're going to make and I think that's cool. I think they gotta do that. But at the same time. I definitely see this as I I just. I don't see the show. Sustaining the same level of popularity. I I I see the funk. Oh pop still sitting on the shelves at target every time to a new target to look for my Blacklist reading reading funke pop which never arrives it. No they did. Maybe they made that twenty fifteen and they're like eighty dollars on Ebay. I know trust me. Five denby limited edition one. I still can't every time I go to places some sorry Jeff but every time I go funk POPs I always look for it because I'm like Funchal. Pots are definitely those things that nobody ever rotates right. Just get a shipment a fucking keep it on the shelf for Eric Years and years and years still smoke funke POPs it places Christ how much the Betty Boop funk pop sells for the Christmas one know how much I yet he me. Guess like on the secondary market. No you this is just how Yeah I don't know how. Yeah yeah sure is like one hundred twenty dollars forty six dollars how much the two thousand says is my lab we did we did. Betty boop turvy on rating the other day because of inspired discussions How much on average do the two thousand seven Olivia? Kim's Betty boop inspired Nike Air Force Ones Retail for in two thousand twenty. Two Hundred. Seventy five dollars one thousand seven hundred sixty five damn money.

What do propaganda you gotTA support the war effort and settle down now. We just we just roasted on radio. Pfc called her gross gross cities trash for sailors to pound off to report in the thirties. Well did you ever see that animated show drawn together? Yes yes there is a pretty funny show. I'm sure a lot of the humor hasn't aged well at all. But there was a betty boop type character in that one. Who's just completely disgusting disgusting things kind of funny.

Rick Moranis out of retirement for shrunk return leaking the next movie in the honey. I shrunk the blank series. This is going to be a movie. This is not gonNA be a Disney. Plus million feeder movie to be called shrunk the fourth in the franchise shrink the kids honey. I blew up the kid and hundred shrunk ourselves on shrunk. I don't know when they're saying shrunk is going to be released but I do know that Josh Gad starring in as Nick Excellency Nick. Character in both shrunk the kids and blew up the kid Mentioned in honey shrunk ourselves and Rick Moranis back. He is out of retirement. Rick Moranis has not been in a live action movie. Since what year. True it wasn't it wasn't Was the one. There's one after little giants Zenit with somebody. It wasn't that good movies. Nineteen ninety-six Tom. Arnold yes big. Bully added Elliott. Wasn't it the last live action movie he was in was honey? We shrunk ourselves in one thousand nine hundred seven and that wasn't even a theory that was direct to video Tam Dude. I like Rick Moranis. He his his wife passed away in the. I think at the start of the nineties and he took a step back from acting to focus. He had two young children at that point to focus on his children. So major respect but also this. This eighties kid is super excited to get Rick. Moranis back in this property. I love so dearly growing up. I I'm very stoked that's my question. We'll we'll we'll do is for each news. Topics does Rick Moranis. Because I feel like these two. The other one's going to be muddy ducks. I feel like we were all kind of on the same page. You're not that excited whatever. This is completely changed my mind on this. I cannot wait to see Rick Moranis back in. Not that. I'm like the Vegas Rick Moranis Fan of all time but this now makes me want to see this movie. Rick Moranis Great. Rick Moranis is very funny. I see. Tv Canadian co- co- comic legend. Rick Miranda side. I love it. I'm super excited. He's a absolutely I would say I was GONNA say. American treasure pretty is Canadian but I think he's one of those guys that everyone likes. There's there's not many bad things to say about them like from stuff. You're talking about troll like me. Step back to take care of his kids and be a dad and like he was at the highest fame. Like he's like really known by everybody at that point and he took a step back to be a dad. I don't know a lot of slaughter brute celebrities that would actually make that choice netting. That's really cool him and I think it makes them an awesome dad even better person and to see him be able to get back into this franchise. That helped make him famous. I think is really cool and does make a wing were excited for cool for a guy that we should on all the time by the way in Josh Gatt. Who's a big part of the production of the movie and in it? I know you've just gotTa Lotta Shit as if we wouldn't be best friends with them. We've met him but that's GonNa be awesome. He's one time he gets Jesse Eisenberg treatment. Yes yeah he just becomes our he comes our guy he fucked and he someone tells US tells us that. We have roasted coffee. Just hates us. Let's gotta be cool. I know he posted somewhere. Like this is the greatest thing ever and he signed up to do this movie and did it. Not Knowing if if Wayne's Alinsky Rick Moranis be back and sure enough his I mean that will be a huge deal for this obviously i. I think that that takes us. Movie from being like a reboot or a boy you call it a sequel without like any of the major players to actually being an event of Rick Moranis returning is a is a low scale. Cinematic event greed. What about Amelia? Estevez back as Gordon Bombay. This one I don't care same as this one. I don't care and no disrespect amelio Estevez. I quite enjoy Emilio Estevez especially in his His loaded weapon movies in. You know all this shit he did. He mentioning loaded weapon. The third reference to randomly loaded weapon. I I'd loved loaded weapon naked gun. I love those parody movies. I I think this is less on. I mean the the thing here is this is less on meal. Estevez in just I'm just tired of the mighty ducks I don. I don't like the mighty ducks that much. I didn't really like it when I was a kid. I think hockey's fine But I'm just not. I'm not excited for this and that you know if you're listening to this and you're like I am. I think he should be. Because I think a lot of people love the mighty ducks and you have every right to love. It just wasn't something. I got attached you so they could. They could put frigging Tom. Skerritt nece movie. I wouldn't even get excited. I think that like for me anyway. Like hockey was a big part of my life growing up and I still like the mighty ducks movies. A pretty fair amount and So I think it's cool to get him back and I think show is going to revolve around Lauren. Graham the mom from Gilmore Girls. And it's GonNa be her and her son or son is played by the The the the kid from Good boys but I think he's playing the kid and I think the kid is cut from the team and the mom starts her own team or something to compete against that team which reminds me of kicking and screaming among a billion other movies but but I think it's cool. I think it's interesting to get back in the game. Haven't seen a million and a while and that just reminds you this funny American Dad bit where they're like our great was when he was in all these great movies and then once he realized everyone was sick. Sick of them just faded out of existence. Forever just gone forever. What what happened was all the parents joined the muddy ducks team. And then they google corn Bombay. And they're like I can't just keeps whoops I see. Amelia undermines you that his brother Joe Estevez works on on cinema at the cinema with Tim. Hi Decker and returning to the very low budget but hilarious like I think we're on like eleven twelve seasons on adult swim by Josephus though Martin Sheen Charlie Sheen Amelio Estevez. And then you've got to other Estevez Siblings. That are are doing things to. I mean this. This is prolific. This is a prolific family. Pretty Cool Air jet of Jeff Loves Martin Sheen to because he's he's a big west West Wing. Yeah Yeah President Scott Big. He's got big West Wing brain favorite character though Sligo mcgarry. You probably like Bradley. Whitmore's character Whitford put some respect on his name. Oh Bradley for Sorry Josh liven. Yeah like Josh Us. Good really good character. Probably up there. They Beeman Leo. So you're right. Congratulations let's talk about more. Fuck you green night. Eight twenty four. Another who it's going to be really good that no one's GonNa see Yeah Starts Dev Patel. Let's have a candor. Joel Edgerton Very Keegan. I'm GonNa say we pronounce his name a fantasy adventure? Based on the Arthurian legend. The Green Knight tells the story of. How do you say that Sir going going? I don't know I'M GONNA look it up the Green Knight Sir Wayne King Arthur's reckless and headstrong nephew. Who embarks on a quest to confront the Green night a gigantic green skin stranger? I look good again. It's eight twenty. Four did not have a perfect year last year. Let me note that not going to say twenty for only dropped quote unquote heaters last year. Because they definitely did not They had some movies. Let's hear that worn all that great at least in my opinion Some not going to say it's a guaranteed to be fantastic. I think they. I think they are focusing more on TV last year. Because what they what they put on. Tv released a lot of movies last year. They did euphoria and they did. Rammie to both are great. Romney won a golden globe. No they released. They released around twenty movies last year and I would say half of them. Were not good. They did release some very good ones though right so I'm not going to give a twenty four. The immediate stamp of this is going to be great because I just. I don't know a little more hesitant. I'm not gonNA join on any eight hundred four slender whatsoever and I love them so much I agree. It does look bad as strode. Visually looks really fucking cool and As outside of the cast members that you mentioned before I notice Sean Harris from Michigan possible fallout and also Kate Dickie who Breastfeeds like a ten year. Old Kid in game thrones and that can't notice reasserts anyone else now. No no slander. I'm just saying I'm not I'm not gonNA give an auto. This is going to be good. I I can't do it. I did not realize how many eight twenty for movies there were so I went through my rankings and I kind of really goes a couple of years. I didn't like this year. They still made a lot of good ones midsummer last black man. Who San Francisco? Obviously uncut gems the lighthouse. So this could be great. I would I mean mark against it right is i. Don't think our theory in legends. Have that strong of a batting average at the movies Monty Python. Actually that gross. Very little money. Gross you talk in Quality Monty Python. I mean obviously you know very good you primarily Clive Owen King Arthur movie. That was like any time. They tried to make up Action movie and I don't just didn't look like an action movie. This is just a you know like a fantasy drama. Almost transformers the last night guess. When was the last night that is a king? Arthur movie are through the legend of disorder. Whatever that one was a good one was the Was The kid who would be king. Yeah Kid we became known. Maybe there are things there but I thought this look. I'd the visuals looked awesome. I I loved. I loved what they did there. Pardon me watching it. I was kind of like I like the witcher but as I wish the witcher. Kinda looked like this would like to this quality right. This is really neat so I am excited for it. I am curious what the budget is because he looked expensive commercially. Eight twenty four. I believe is smaller budget. They don't make tunnel. Yeah make back their money but compared to like some of the other ones where they they have a Gopro in there in a haunted house. Make a movie. It's like five million dollars somehow and it makes thirty million dollars this one at least as like Good looking special effects with the flames and then I guess who? I'm assuming to be the Green Knight who looked like a tree. There eventually also going to get completely get bought by apple. I think we've been predicted already working with them on for loss so right. I think that that'd be that'd be a very Like the makes logical fit because that fits in with the apple bread. A slice get high-concept very artistic way to digital on the visual the Lord of the Rings Skies Love that interesting They're like the trying to say is like blunt houses. The GOPRO like twenty eight twenty. Four is actually have a real camera but you know they just twenty four would release early good movie on. Gopro LIKE THEY. They would jimmy filming two pay for movies. I shoot what's the one with Not Felicity Jones for the mental institution known talking about. I can't think of the title. I came into the name of it but that one I think goes eight twenty four though or was it. Oh the one that was on an iphone. The soderbergh movie. Yeah Yeah fuck the name of it. Oh Man I think Tangerine was an iphone. I thought that was eight. Twenty four might be dead wrong on that unseen insane. That's what I liked unseen. Those good movie unseen was with Claire. Claire Foy that's right. Unseen was done by done by Bleaker Street now regency enterprise. Okay ed whatever. It's twenty four or whatever but anything's good. I just assume it's eight twenty four. We got we got two more things and then we got one more thing than a quick hitters or Iceland. Quick opinions but we're talking video game movies a lot this week. This is a video game movie. Pizza News box office game today since nobody in the veloce pastor is going to work for the box office game We're going to boxoffice video game Box Office game for video game movies the brain. This is the least shocking news. I've heard in quite a while call of duty movie. Currently on hold at activision says writer and not only on hold kind of sounds like it. Majors never happened. They yeah they they put it on hold because they're trying to patch the movie and it was a hundred and forty five terabytes. You'd halfway through. There's a loop bucks to continue. What did I say earlier? We were talking about games in our group. I talked about call of duty. I I I will stick by the wording of the size of updates of new call duty game their offensive there. There's the whole gang game. Are you download the whole game? Every time the update you have to delete other games to Goma began. It's it's a whole new game in that you get to more maps for the cost of the like two three four hours of download time with the cost of you just can't play fee for now because you have to get off your system and we got a war to Donald. Is that what they're trying to do? They're just like well you know. People can't play their games if We take up their entire. Want one terabyte hard drive. I think it's a big we. Don't give a fuck about like the call duty movie. I thought was always going to be a war movie anyway just a war movie with the with the IP name. Call duty is doesn't do anything for me. They probably thought about it from every angle. And they're like. There's no way to make this good. There's there's no way to make this not hunter killer or something in that realm which isn't mean it would be a bad thing but you can't make anything better than like. I don't Know B. Plus level action right like you can't make this fucking a John Wick. Where it's like a highly respected action franchise. I don't know how you do that with coal duty. I don't know either in once they like like you got to appeal to the sensibilities of the call of Duty Fan base which is a very wide wide fan base. But you know you also like what you get called duty players. I don't know what percentage of the players are under the age of like sixteen. But I feel like there's a lot of thirteen and fourteen year olds on there so you had this. Ip that basically a war movie so you want to put an R. rating on it but then a lot of people are really into call duty. Can't get in the movie by themselves so I think you know you're at an impasse is the what type of movie do you WanNa make? And then you have to luke call of duty or into it or are you gonNA make the call duty name on it. And what's The fucking point? I just don't I don't think they can figure out how to make this good. And because I can't and if I can't do it then they can fucking genius make it a for enrolling emmerick movie. That's the guy you need to attach to this. Yeah that Yes yes. That's all say yes. They needed to go all out. Just have empty the entire soundtrack. Just have him like a Kendrick. Lamar deal with Black Panther. Eminem do the call of duty soundtrack. I mean just if this ever got released I just imagine imagine the the blitz of media advertising etc etc. That would follow up on this like you thought the Star Wars Dole. Bananas were something else like. You're just now going in yet. Call the duty on the doctor. Pepper bottles now to enter the code to see if you want a jeep Martin warfare addition like. I think it's there for them to make money. I just don't know if they figured out how to make something. That isn't laughed at because the problem is if you make something shitty and the people that activision you fucking with my brand dude so hear me out here rolling loud but it's just rolling emmerick movies for Twenty Four Hour Straits in Miami or something. I don't hate that workshop workshop that someday with Roland we ever get him on the Pud. Hey we have wall. Hey we only need you for five minutes. We have an idea look rolling loud a role in Emmerick movie festival taking place in Chicago's Millennium Park on the same weekend as Lollapalooza. Like you saying that well no no no no no no rented a separate space on the side all right hitters. These are quick quick pieces of news. I need a quick opinion and you are not allowed to say. I don't care you have to give an opinion okay. I don't care now you have to okay bride of Frankenstein. Rowing Ma are rallying. Now Drake dirty. Fuck that up SAM rainy or junkers inskeep potentially approach to direct. Okay I Sam Remy Fine. John Krinsky the more intriguing. Pick right here. Let's see him work with this. You worked with own source material. Last time I did a good job at it. I'd like to see I'd like to seal Jim. Take a crack at the bride of Frankenstein. I don't like either of them for this personally. Well I don't like the bride of Frankenstein. Neither to fund is a bride of Frankenstein. A comedy movie. Are you saying like a name? You wouldn't expect like we No not even necessarily want us to be funny like we got Shriver directed I want. Yeah Yeah exactly. What else? He's playing. Ray Donovan is what's that what. Yes we have. Schreiber's directing Branston. Let's start the rumor. Someone tweeted out and make screen. Meeks green rent make a whole I could. I could do a rumor. I could tweet that out. Rumor lead Schreiber to leave. Shriver the graphic comedic version of bride. Afraid I'll tweet out. He plays as Donovan. Dsp plays Ray Donovan in the movie. Okay I'll do it after her done recording. I'm currently twenty from Harrison Ford and the USA in USA Today where he was asked about if Hans a force goats he says I have no fucking idea. What a force ghost is King? So much I've just imagining being on the set of call of the wild or did you see the video caldwell today yes from CBS. This morning did no. It's not real booking right. Yeah it was a human dead serious dog. The dog was was a he acted with an a person on hands a needs planning dog. It was it was Harrison. Ford's Iringa travels with them. With the case he snaps his fingers opens up the case and he picks picks which study wants so that one and I saw the interview. I don't know a guy was with but they showed him a quote from mark. Hamill that they tweet at them which is pretty nice. I like when they interact hamill and Harrison Ford. You know like when Harrison Ford passes away in forty years or hopefully forty years. You'll be at his funeral and somebody's going to be like I. I loved Him and Star Wars in and he's GONNA grown always dead. He's just can't get away from this Nc Patriot games bring other things. Next one can go. I Aladdin to officially happening but it will be original story. Not Based on the return of Jaffar Bringing Back Guy Ritchie. I say I'm back in. He's able to make it. Maybe be one of the only The recent live action tall Remix I was very tolerable. I liked it. That's how the meeting went like this guys. WanNa do return to the Jaffar like bring back the worst part of Aladdin. No thanks. We're doing a new story. Doing cited for this recast please recast too far. If they bring him back and I like that actor but not in that role as we call we call that a miscast not great next. One is dress drafts. It's different. I want your opinion on this. I want you to guess their character names Jurassic world three to bring back Jake Johnson and Omar Cy John Jason Dom Stevens and Crane Lancaster Omar name was berry and Jay. Johnson was lowery cruisers. No way nobody. They said that name at any point during that movie. There's no fucking way. No no one ever said. Oh lowery lowery. No-one said any use people's names during it sounds like they're like looking through their pantry sauce. Mike lowry seasoning salt and then had some more Shishir sauce. That was like carruthers. And they're like okay. I assure a worship last thing. Careful del Toro adds new cast members to his next movie or one of his next movies tells us when you McGregor crystal vaults and Ron Perlman sounds good right. That's a great cast. Baby Love That for Pinocchio Even Though Again Pinocchio Creepy Italian puppet Japan. We don't know what historian I eat. Creepy Coosa me out a lot. Not a you know it's fine. I'm just not a Pinocchio Guy You know. What Ron Perlman wasn't in that? I watched this weekend alien resurrection. I've been all the alien movies you did that. Was I meant to say something? Because you've started commenting on all the alien movies in succession. Yes I think. He's just engine. The Alien Movies folks would alienate as they get sucked through the spaceship. Because I like that part. That was gross That was Aliens I think no no get sucked through the whole alien not not through like Oh yeah. I don't know it's the big white alien. That's like the hybrid of Ripley and I think the moment referencing the vendors infinity war. Yeah I think so yes. That's what goes resurrection. I'm not. I'm not fully down with resurrection. I I started watching it but I went through Alien Aliens Alien Three and I gotTa Say. I think aliens is my favorite. I think James Cameron I think all Jimmy did a really good job with that one followed by alien which I you know. Probably the better movie but I just like the vibe of aliens better like like the game over man game over Guy. Alien resurrection though like from what I've seen of it on. The REWATCH Makes Alien Three. Feel like aliens though because I was watching alien three. I'm like this isn't good and I started watching resurrection. Mike Okay. I'll take alien three every day Any Day go watch a permit user favorite movie with why for meet this. I just thought it was boring. Plodding Daddy didn't have a direction. I thought there was so much wasted potential there. I think it was fun at a good time with a fund can meet. This is fun. Okay maybe not fun. Definitely the wrong word but I enjoyed for me so member. The guys had office so I was so disappointed by Prometheus because the alien war has the has the opportunity to be so fantastic in so interesting because like that's one of the big questions altered the original alien movies of who are these creatures and actually. I think it's probably one. That's better left unanswered but I still wanted to know and the engineers one. What do you want? You got the engineers. Your questions were answered true. I was more disappointed by covenant because I thought that Prometheus set the table for something to be better than Prometheus and then covenant was very bad. Yeah aliens is so good. The Paul Reiser. I suppose. Polarized polarizing looks twenty seven. That was in fact young. Paul Ryan Young Paul Reiser. Who's alien three? Who Charles Dance? Charles Dance Each Dancer. Like forty seven during this movie but like compared to how he looks now. He looks like he's in his thirties. It's nuts The veloce pastor fica two thousand seventeen American comedy horror movies streaming on Amazon prime video or does Amazon. I think prime members Amazon summary of this movie is Pastor Doug Jones becomes infected by a curse in China resulting in him turn with Zappers. Parents died by the way resulting in Him. Turning into a velociraptor when he becomes angry he decides to kill criminals including drug dealing. Ninjas by using his transformation a pastor travels the world for hisself given mission it's the pastor or priest he really is a priest. Priest is a different thing for a couple of notes from Brendon steer. The Guy who directed the movie he did a Reddit Ama and he talked to a couple of things that are that are are pretty good. But I'll read this production note from Kapiti. The director thought of the idea in two thousand ten while he was attending school of Visual Arts Manhattan efforts on auto corrected velociraptor to veloce pastor. The project is like the phone thought of the idea. Steer made a short film fake Grind House drills which included the loss of pastor. His prior youtube videos had around forty five years each class projects around forty five thousand resulting have been taking. It might be a good idea but the wrong with that there. He said the movie's made to be fun. Anybody looking for deeper meaning in the man turns into a dinosaur. Genre is probably on a fool's errand era to attempts to crown from the film for like five years to Don Jones sixteen using kickstarter in speed and spark never heard of that film received funding from private investor that the mother of steers for a new of loss of pastor was filmed for thirty five thousand dollars. Seventy percent around tomatoes critics. It is definitely meant to not be obviously a job. It's a parody. It's very funny at least in my opinion very dumb. It's obviously not good. The effects are done in a way to look bad. They all come off. Larry is one of the effects of the movie. Just not even done His parents died it says. Vs The screen literally says via affects what Carbon car explosion and then artifacts car on fire. Yeah there's a lot of little funny gags in here. We'll talk about our favorites. It's hard to rate a movie like this for me and I'm Gonna I'm GonNa cop out and do what I did with. I'm just not I can't. I can't get some like disarray eating. I don't know maybe I will by the end. Maybe about That's what I was GONNA say. I'm glad it's in the same boat as tim and Eric's billion dollar movie. It's not a movie in the same intention of something like sonic or fantasy island and it's there to have fun. It's it's a very very by the book. B-movie made to be dom may be laughed at have fun with and there's some really fucking funny moments. I tell you my favorite gag. Yes because I didn't get into conversation so the best part of this movie was the older priest. Yes yes I was about to say. The flashback sequences actually. Brad left out. Director says his favourite part of the movie of the Vietnam. That's the funniest part of so I. I enjoyed it overall. I can't give it a rating either because it's not. I don't think it's meant to be rated. I don't think you're supposed to watch this as you would a a movie in judge on any merit other than did you enjoy or not. Enjoy it But I will say when they did the flashback and they made no effort to d. h. m. whatsoever said maybe his hair and then jain wig on them home over the wing and then his wife is there and she's running up and running towards him and then steps on the landmine of foot in front of him and blow just bad. Cgi blows up on them and that was my favorite gag and then the guy walks up and he's like. I don't think there's anything we can do for. She's too far. Gone that part I I will give this movie reading. I'll give it a sixty nine and then I'll say we're going to change it or not That part of the non-fox back when he walks out with the other priest who isn't because he's already young they made them all in the future and he's just wearing the. This is the way the the lighter colored hair and moustache wake. I burst out laughing. It was so fucking funny and every like you said it's like it's not really meant to be kind of digested like a real movie but I enjoyed it quite a bit. Like everything about it was so fucking stupid and funny and it's just it's not like enjoyable but it's it's like you. I feel like we are supposed to watch it and ended up enjoying it so I I don't know I mean. Just just the effect of when he turns into a raptor. So good alone is one of the funniest things so stupid. The once the scene where he's fighting the other all the the Ninjas and he's in the full raptor soup for the first time is just like trying to kick him and he's just falling over and can't get up fogging good There are a lot of things in here like they do. Tackle some tropes like the hooker with a heart gold trope Is kind of addressed? Pretty in here And Yeah it's it's what what are some other ones. Let's just talk about the gag the Frankie Mermaid the pimp that guy. The most overdone character ever made when he's in the confession. When's the last time I murdered somebody else like last week here at this church actually some some kids parents and then kills screaming. There is so much screaming in this movie. It fucking rocks the setting for the forest and all of a sudden it just says China at one. Get it's weird force of China. Look like upstate. New York Ages. Throw big block letters. China across the screen. Just change settings there. I'm trying to think of some other parts. I really liked from the scene where they first have sex. I thought was kind of funny and like how they kept like trying to play a pain trying to eventually the Iraq leave the clergy nor should it was really good. Exercise them seeing also very funny with like that Weird Daniels Burien Guy Mystical Dan Bulgarian. Yeah it was. I just love that. Older priest some comment about like. When he went to China there was just so stupid but then like I think there's this conversation they're having in the veloce. Pastor is like you don't understand I'm different. There's others like you know I mean not do this so good in the the Ninja brother. Guys you're my brother. How and then like they do. The flashback. Again it's the dad saying the veloce pastor. You're my only son while he's standing right there in the doorway. It's just so ridiculous. Some of the lines too like the night after they have sex in there in there in the morning of their dad and then the Ninja barge into the room and defeat the Ninjas and just the line where it always ninjas come from Yep that's perfect it reminded me of did you guys ever see fury. Yes yes talking about at once or twice and it reminded me of fury wait. Fear Kung Pao. No in cow is not compelled. Fury was the one that was like the cyberpunk type movie. I think started as like a skit and then got crowd funded and I mean the budget for that one who six hundred thirty thousand dollars so compared to this. I mean it's it's magnitudes more expensive Kung fury and I mean it shows in the production but just in terms of like the over the top intentionally trying to be movie reminded me of that and in the General Tone. What was that? One movie was at Samurai Cop that there was make fun of except I think Samurai Cup series but reminded me a little bit of like the clips of seen from that. I'm not sure I've never heard. Samra cop fuck I remember just watching clips of it once. It was very funny but I think I ended up enjoying this quite a bit more than I thought it would be. would but. I think it just takes a minute to get into right because the first twenty minutes on my What the fuck is happening here right because like you don't know tongue-in-cheek you don't know where it's going he kinda wants. It sets the VIBE. It's there's a lottery funny moments. Yeah there's there's an an over it becomes a little too much at times. I will say that where like all right. I guess it's funny but like I guess like we. Kinda get it right at this point but it's I think overall it works. It's fine it just it. Meagan point you're like I've had enough of this like when you really break it down individually. It's very funny as a whole I don't know if everyone will love it but if you saw little bits and pieces of this I think for the most part you fucking laugh me name just like the way. Blood Spews next unbelievable. There's always so much blood and it's it's like not good fake blood either. It just looks often. That makes it all the more hilarious right in the good part about it is. It doesn't overstay its premise too long. Because it's not that long the movie. Yeah it's a very very short movie. Fan are along so I can. It feels like an hour invaded our ten. I believe yeah little over an hour so it's almost like watching a television show like a pilot episode. Felt like a pilot episode for the Philosophy. Pastor enjoyed it. I don't really have someone else to say. He's not supposed to enjoy it but I enjoyed it. No you definitely enjoy it. I think you're supposed to enjoy the movie. Even said that he's like like you're supposed to have fun with this. Have you start over thinking this? You're you're you're doing the wrong thing. Yeah it is what it is. He doesn't doesn't try to be anything different. I it's also not like I would say it's I don't think it's brilliant. I don't think it's a you know. A A parody that I put in the Pantheon of Send ups of John wrote parodies? But I think it's funny enough to I think it's funny enough in that sense. It's like as I respect that it came from someone's brain and they actually put it on a medium of Media and shared it with other people and I respect that. It's well said I don't think there's much else to say about it. We talk more about Ellen's game of Games Zoe's extraordinary playlist.

The most recent one is and hope that's made the most money because it's we will pick resident evil. The final chapter all right so resident. Evil was a resident. Movie is the last one have ready to make so much money. Nobody ever talks about resonable movies. I don't know it's not a thing that comes up at Thanksgiving or coon city resident. Evil the first one made one hundred and two million dollars far down the list resident. Evil Afterlife made three hundred million dollars. Ooh kicking up taking up resident. Evil Afterlife may three hundred million dollars and that placed it at number six Apocalypse that made one hundred twenty nine million extinction made one hundred. Forty eight million of retribution. May Two hundred and forty million okay and Resident Evil Final Chapter. Two thousand seventeen made three hundred twelve million incomes at number five on the list. You got it correct. I don't feel good about it. I don't feel like I picked that in a confident manner. I feel like we just took the most recent resident evil move that inflation and it just ended up working out for us by the way that sorry. Prince of Persia was a Disney movie. It's crazy Miss Prince of Persia. Especially when you look at the first Prince of Persia video game ever made. Oh Yeah like just barebones computer game. Where a guy jumps between ledges. I remember I had one of the Games. Bought it without telling my mom on like my phone. Like a flip phone. She got very mad like a recurring charge. Somehow it was yet you hit a prison. Persia hourglass on your first iphone tipped over what he did in the game and it stunk remember that much the Prince of Persia. So what are we got an extra video game movies after? Sonic the hedgehog. We got monster. Hunter Mortal Kombat an uncharted movie. Tomb Raider uncharted which will never be released and literally never keep dropping directors and shit moving minecraft twenty twenty two. That's right they got a. They got the title of the movie. Bladerunner strike while the iron heart. Get that out. There doesn't have enough money. Microsoft's Kinda had a resurgence. Though isn't it like I mean it's always kind of been there. It's just not as big as it used to be. Then the untitled mega man film. That's GonNa suck ass untitled metal gear solid film. That's GONNA SUCK ASS call duties on here. Peak itchy sequel and saw the hedgehog sequel angry birds movie. I think that probably should have been on the list but it was in Animated category of the final fantasy spirits. Within that's right I when I think fancy I think the Voice of Alec Baldwin and James Woods sorry I just read something. The one of the voice actors from recess voice right. Jason Davis He. He enjoys not joking. Mikey Blumberg depicted Mike. Big Kid Right. Yeah. I think it's Mikey Blumberg. I think his house was to pronounce. Like bomb house. Nike Bull Mess We will be reviewing sonic the hedgehog and fantasy island. Probably Have Ken Jack. Depending on your Internet connection in Costa Rica. Let's do it can't wait yeah. may have guessed onto not totally sure about you about that yet though Looking forward to talking about both those movies I think there's a fair amount of talk about with sonic and I'm confident you guys will think fantasy island is horrendous. I think there's a lot to talk about. They're taking existing properties trying to make something different and using the name that try to. There's a lot going on there. Lucy Hale's in it right. Yep She was on Kemmel the other night. Don't ask me why I was watching Kimmel. But she didn't really talk about fancy on that much. She was on there to promote. Katy keene so I don't think she's too proud of fantasy island from the people who did her other movie truth or dare columns another new movie. Just excellent not sure if the people totally believe this Ray Donovan. Bit hit the reach. Schreiber may have been approached to star Ray Donovan and the upcoming bride of Frankenstein. Movie Woolsey. If they believe it folks are it can control. I'm Jeff Low. We'll talk to you later on in the week. Had We get the box office? A job pro used to say. Let News this change. Which we pay

John. Seeker enters a nightmare world. Unimaginable hell of their own creation. Book By. The beginning of the period of the case. Start Looking for many digital. Have no idea what I'm looking for. I don't think should be. Understanding. It's not an easy thing to understand. This The covenant that had been satisfied. By Own. The reign of the last Norman King Stephen was a time England would love to forget. By all accounts. King Stephen was a week fool who bankrupted his coffers by paying landholders, exorbitant amounts to support him. So. It was that when he needed money to support and defend his people from invasion. He had nothing left. His people lived in fear and poverty their lives extremely brief and extremely hard. Reality was difficult. What was visible was always unpleasant. So the people turn to the invisible to the unknowable the people turned to the church. This was a time when people believed ghostly figures appeared often that God was watching from above and that demons were definitely real. A paranormal event in medieval times would have been different if something paranormal happen now, it would change the way we see the world forever back then it would have been something that people treated with respect but to them it wouldn't have been all that surprising. In the poem Sir Wayne in the Green Knight the Color Green symbolizes the magical nature of the night William of Newburgh Medieval monastic scholar wrote the following about something that happened in the village of wool pit during the reign of King Stephen. Not, there amid a marvel a prodigy unheard of since the beginning of all time, which is known to have come to pass under King Stephen. He continues. One harvest tide when the harvesters were gathering in the Korn their crapped out from these two pits boy and a girl green at every point of their body clad in garments of strange blue hue and unknown texture. They took the children into the village in the story continued. Nobody, could understand their speech they appeared to be starving, but they wouldn't eat. Eventually they ate beans but sadly, the boy deeply depressed died soon after their arrival in the village. The girl eventually married and settled down when asked about her in the boys origins, she told stories about their world, a world of green people in permanent twilight with no son. One day she and the boy were tending their flocks when they came upon a cave. The girl wouldn't talk about what happened in the cave but when she and the boy stepped out of it, this new land with the bright sun shocked and confused them. Another monastic account claims that the girl said that she and the boy were folks of Saint Martin's land and that they'd heard a great noise and become suddenly wrapped in spirit and found themselves in our world. Sadly lost missing children wandering the landscape wasn't all that uncommon at the time. But. It's the green aspect of these children and their story of the cave in the loud noise that marks these monastic counts as remarkable. In reality to foreign children had most likely been abandoned and found starving perhaps some kind of jaundice or anemia was responsible for the color of their skin. But what if it was something else? During the Middle Ages, the village of wool pit belonged to the Abbey of Barry Saint Edmunds this area was one of the most densely populated parts of rural England. The Abbey of Barry Saint Edmunds was one of the richest Benedictine monasteries in England at the time. And there were a number of stories documented by the monastic scholars right around the time of the Green Children's appearance in wool pit. A handful of these stories involved villagers disappearing into the woods following strange voice. And those very same villagers returning later. Changed? Somehow. The village of Wolf it is located in the county of Suffolk East Anglia, which according to the work of Professor Adams as it relates to tennis is very close to the European location. Adams believed was connected to tennis before he claimed it moved to North America. In Eighteen, twenty, three. From the Public Radio Lions Minot Beats Wail. It's Tana's I'm nick silver. We're telling the story of tennis in order every week. So if you're new to tennis, you should go back and start at the beginning. We'll try not to get too far ahead. By the time you get back. Coming. Our last episode ended with my receiving a package in the mail. There were three things inside a USB drive a hard copy photograph of Sterling. Schuster's daughter rose. And a copy of the Melissa Atlas. The USB. Drive contain the audio recording. We've already heard there was nothing remarkable about the photograph. which leaves us with the Melissa. SADDIK ATLAS We've encountered the Mel Ascetic Atlas a few times on this show in in our tennis companion podcast the last movie. Here's a description from an earlier episode. The medic atlas is kind of weird old guidebook. A Road Atlas. There's a fantastic coffee table book called Atlas Obscure Imagine that except it's leather bound and old not old in an ancient way although there are certainly tonal aspects of the book that feel ancient in love crafty and way. The Mellow said a gatling feels old in a nineteen fifties through seventies shitty motel kind of way like crackling neon tacky carpets would panelled walls with a pre continental breakfast post Charles Manson death cult vibe. The MELA. Sediq Atlas feels like dark weird unsettling kitsch. Kind of like that horrific film in the ring in. Guidebook form. The fact that Sterling Schuster had sent me a copy of the Mel Ascetic Atlas was surprising as was the fact that his daughter Rose had it in her possession right before her disappearance. Melissa. Really. Apparently it was in his daughters possession before she disappeared has at the same versions we've seen it looks similar. It's hard to say without another copy to compare it to there are a couple of pages with folded corners chat. I. Wish I, was there. metoo. But we're in agreement that you're not digging back into any of this tennis shit right. What pages. Check inbox. The two pages that Sterling Schuster's daughter Rose Hempel had bookmarked. More interesting. The first folded page marked an entry about ray would Washington sister town kits? All British Columbia. Just like Ray would consult was built and then abandoned before it was ever really fully occupied. If, you're new to tennis and would like to learn more about the extreme weirdness surrounding the town of raiwind Washington. You should go back and listen to our earlier episodes. Kits hold is located way up north in British Columbia a few hours away from what Sterling Schuster referred to as the garrison breach or the garrison anomaly. The. Entry was two pages and toto page. One was all about kit salt. Kit, salt was built in the late seventies by the Phelps Dodge Corporation of the United States. Design for twelve hundred residents kit salt included a shopping mall restaurant and swimming. Pool. Very similar to what happened to Ray would in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two prices for the they reminding crashed and the entire community was evacuated after eighteen months of residence. The second page featured a sketch of a huge totem pole. It was strange. It didn't look like a typical totem pole at all. It had very large wings in the center and the whole thing looked like it was made of mushrooms or something else gnarled and a textured. The Totem Pole was called. The morning tree. There was a small map below at that indicated it was located a couple of hours away from terrace British Columbia. Very close to the location of the garrison. Anomaly. The second entry with folded page was something called the crystal cavern. This entry appeared to be related to a first nations myth about a hidden cave reputedly located in the same area of northern British. Columbia. The area where rose hempel disappeared. We're going to explore rose humbles copy of the Malesaj Atlas why she may have had it and why she'd folded those particular patients. But I I received a very surprising phone call. Hello. Hello. Neck. Veronica. How are you? Okay, how are you? I'm good. Where are you? I'm at health and Portland. It's been a long time. It has. I just finished listening to season four of Tanis. What did you think? I. Think I'm worried about you, nick. I'm fine. I've put everything that happened last season behind me I'm that world now I'm actually I'm doing much better. Back to here. But. I'm not calling because of what happened last he's on your show. No. Now. I'm calling you now because I've been having strange dreams. What kind of dreams? Dreams apply you going away and never coming back but. But. But the thing is I don't really think their dreams. I. Think they're real. I think. I'm sure something bad is going to happen if you go back there. I'm I'm glad you're not thinking about it. I saw something happened that while. Veronica. I called back and left a message on her voicemail I asked her to call me I wanted to ask her some more questions about what had happened last season about her dreams about her life. But so far. Veronica hasn't returned any of my calls. Before, we get back to the Mel Ascetic Atlas at asked them to dig into something else or rather someone else. That someone. Was Rose Hempel. So. I guess my first big question is what was in American detective investigating this incident in northern Canada. While the first part of that is easy what I part the American part. That camp or base or whatever that garrison thing involved a shitload of scientists and researchers. A lot of different nationalities were wrapped and even though it's located on Canadian soil, the US appeared or appears to be in charge. Going, on up there. You asked me to look into the daughter section as a completely different thing because it's impossible to dig anything up. No it's because you're not getting back into this shit we decided. Fine. What about rose? Simple. What's wrong with trying to help this guy find his daughter from the safety of my desk. While in fearing nothing, but there are doors that can be opened from anywhere. Jesus you suddenly cu-ltive Tens, Paul Fuck you that's lovecraft. Maybe it was August. Wick. Hey when I, get into something I get in pretty damn wholesome. The second part of your answer to my initial question. Wait, what was your question again puts an American detective doing investigating this thing in northern Canada right I gave you the American part but the rose hampel part is a little bit trickier. Well something like this is below her paygrade way below. What does that mean? She's kind of a big deal investigator from Washington DC something like this. They would never send this girl not in a million years. No. No way she would be sent up there. So what happened? She would have had to ask to go. Right. Now. You're thinking about this shit. You're not going up there. You can see me. You. It's a metaphor I don't think that's a metaphor. What does Carl have to say about all this shit? Neck. Dot. Do you sound like? Good she's smart. WHO Didn't you say the doctor told you the tennis changing your brain well, it's not confirmed. Exactly. That's parts Kinda up in here. Yeah, I'm fine I'm waiting for a second opinion on a couple of things. Really Yeah really it's fine. I'm fine. Let me know if you decide you're going to do something. Stupid Right. Right. Tax.

Box, dot com slash tennis. Right now, public radio lines producer Kelsey Reynolds is going to read another excerpt from the partial manuscript titled Pacifica. PACIFICA first draft pages chapter three. I met the administrator two weeks after I began the study. The companies office was on the top floor of a large rectangle building across from Park Capitol Hill it was modern built sometime in the late fifties early sixties by some famous architecture and other the interior of the place felt both expensive and neglected. It was elegantly appointed clean pleasingly angular but the artwork furnishings and carpets felt cooley anachronistic this was another world. I was ushered into an equally cold and modern waiting room by an older woman whose eyes sparkled with fatality and confidence. She'd seen the cane and smiled. But she wasn't cloaking pity with that. Smile. It was something else a kind of confident curiosity. She directed me to take a seat. She caught me staring. She smiled and turned away embarrassed. I sat in the Waiting Area for fifteen or twenty minutes reading and rereading the first paragraph of Time magazine article on cocaine. My mind was scattered I was unable to focus on the details of the story. I kept thinking about the fact that I was attracted to the older woman. I hadn't felt attracted to a woman other than my wife since the accident not even conceptually I wondered if this new found energy might be a side effect of the medication. I hope so. The older woman returned and led me out of the Waiting Area through another smaller room and into a long glass corridor. I walked next to her listening to the echoes of her heels on the speckled grey linoleum. She was close. I could smell her perfume. It was. Nothing. overbearing. Just a subtle floral scent I was thinking about my wife trying to remember the last time I noticed her perfume when the woman stopped in front of the door. Painted on the frosted glass in the centre of the door in simple black typeface Helvetica if I had to guess was one word. Administrator. The woman knocked on the door and I heard a man's voice say come in. I couldn't tell whether the voice at answered the knock or anticipated it. The woman left me standing there. With the sound of her heels clip clopping down the long haul, the door opened and I entered the office of the administrator. It's good to have you aboard. He said, his voice measured steady. Thanks I said and fought the urge to hold out my hand. I had the distinct feeling. He wasn't going to take it if offered. I assume Dr Benson went over the medical specifics. Yes I mean he's given me a checklist and he provides me with the prescriptions, the journal pages and rest of it. Good. Good. How are you enjoying study so far? It's going fine. Thank you. He sat down behind his desk and carefully looked me over. It was hard to tell his age I would guess mid to late forties. He was handsome Asian possibly Korean, but he may have been Japanese I. Don't believe he smiled once during our interview everything about the man felt distant walled off penetrable. And yet when I described him to my wife later that evening I used the word friendly and I meant it. If you're amenable. We'd like to move you on to face two of the study. I didn't know there was a phase two. There is. What is face to entail more pills? I'm not sure if I'm up for cocktail of. Strange medication no offense. No offense taken I understand your trepidation but face to is as simple as taking a walk in the woods. I'm afraid I don't understand do I keep taking the pills. Yes. You would continue to take the medication as prescribed. No change there, but you'll be asked to add brief daily walks in the woods. That sounds fine. I held up the cane. But I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to run or anything I. Understand these walks will be guided. The paths will be asking you to follow a precise. The region's you'll be moving through well charted. We will make certain that there is nothing extreme as far as hiking climbing. And everything else is the same pills, the pay the journals. Yes. His reply was patient kind the measured response of a High, school guidance counselor. He stood up and moved over to an old wooden filing cabinet. This is everything you'll need to get started on phase two. He pulled out a Manila folder and handed it to me. If you have any questions, please call the number on the front of your information package. He, moved over to the door and opened it. Thank you for taking part in the study. You're welcome I said I'm sure you'll be feeling better soon. I'll makes one of us. A positive mental attitude makes a big difference. I'll keep that in mind. Thank you. I stepped out into the hallway and he shut the door. I was hoping I might run into the older woman again on my way out but no luck. I. Left the building face to starter pack in hand and made it home in time to make dinner for my wife. I waited until Everley had gone to bed before I sat down in the living room and open the package I received from the administrator. The large ochre colored envelope was fastened with a button anti string. There was nothing printed on the back on the front of the envelope in the exact center stenciled and a clean Black Sand Sarah. The number two. Inside the envelope were set of instructions a calendar, a flat compass on a string, a new journal, a medication schedule, a duplicate of the schedule I was already using and a series of maps with accompanying photographs. The maps and photographs were fairly self explanatory. It was the instructions or rules that stood out. Phase, two of the study involved walking through specific sections of the forest on explicitly marked trails. Face to participants those of us taking part in this phase of the study were called participants were not to walk outside the marked trail under any circumstances. If you left the trail, your participation in the study was forfeit. The rules detailed the existence of observance operatives and surveillance units in and around every exploration area, the marked paths were called. Exploration. Areas. They were watching to make certain the participants followed both the rules and the clearly marked trails. The map was clear and simple aided by detailed photographs of each starting mid an end point and the rules were strict and unambiguous participants were to follow the pathways marked by bright red ribbon any deviation from path placing so much as one foot outside the boundary and your participation in the study was over no warning no appeals no pay. Missing out on the monthly stipend from the drug, company wouldn't make any difference in my life. The severance package I had received from my previous employer was guilt money. Generous. And my wife has an extremely lucrative job. But I wasn't participating in the study for the money. I wanted to do something to make me feel whole again. I wanted my life back. So I started walking in the woods. The walks were difficult. They were precisely the right amount of difficult. It was as if each scheduled outing had been designed routes difficulty and distance specifically for me. was just far enough to push me to the limit but not beyond. which resulted in my ending up at home feeling just the right blend of exhaustion and accomplishment. The first time out it was raining. The wide trail was lightly gravelled rutted with puddles and a low missed was suspended just above the ground masking the ferns and the lower branches of the trees giving everything the appearance of being hidden behind a thin layer of tracing paper. I walked for about twenty minutes ten minutes in ten minutes back. It was slow going and I was forced to lean heavily on the CAIN especially on the way back. But I did it. I finished my first guided walk within the allotted amount of time. I had found something I could focus my energy and attention on. Recovery. Began sleeping a little better occasionally three or four uninterrupted hours, which was a welcome change from my usual sporadic schedule, never more than an hour or so at a time, most of the nights spent staring at the numbers on my alarm clock trying not to move around too much wake my wife. I tried dozens of different relaxation exercises each designed to focus my mind on something other than the constant pain in my lower legs and back but nothing really helped. The walking seemed to have a calming effect. My mind was still scattered and unfocused. Racing all night long the way it used to. Something else that made me feel a bit better was attempting to mentally catalog the local flora and fauna. Before the accident I could have listed the major indigenous plants and animals in this area by heart. But my mind wasn't able to hang onto things. The way it had been before the accident collecting the names images mentally seemed like a logical way to try and exercise my mind at the same time as I was exercising my body. Born. I went back each week for more medication and a battery of tests, blood urine, body mass, and breathing. A wrote down my symptoms, my pain level between one ten normally hovering somewhere right around six and I continued to detail emotional and mental condition in a journal. I'd ride a few paragraphs each morning upon waking. Although I've been getting a bit more sleep in my vital statistics. Now, all landed within the normal range I hadn't noticed any real difference in my physical condition. The medication wasn't working. I had to be in the control group. I was taking nothing but sugar pills and I seriously considered quitting. But the simple act of walking keeping a journal keeping track of how I was feeling to give me a sense of purpose signposts to hit boxes to tick. And there was still a chance however small that this might be the type of medication that takes a while to kick in. Rather than spending my days wallowing in self pity and obsessing over the pain in my back hips and legs not to mention dark cloud that had taken up permanent residence in my brain I had a function. To, catalog my symptoms to track them. To Plan and prepare, for improvement. I decided to become optimistic. The improvement happened in such small increments that I didn't realize I was feeling better until just about six weeks after I began face to of the study the prescribed walks in the woods. I was now able to walk further without gasping for air, and while the pains in my abdomen and lower back hadn't receded completely they had been reduced to a more tolerable level. It turns out I hadn't been given the placebo after all. I was feeling so much better in fact that I didn't mind that my wife had surreptitiously planned to dinner party behind my back. It had been forever since early and I had seen anyone. She made what she called a four, our own good decision and invited Marshall and his wife Bonnie over for dinner. I hadn't seen Marshall since I began face to at that point I'd begun receiving my medication directly from the administrator's office and with working much longer hours than normal and my daily walking in the woods. Neither of US had much energy left for entertaining. With our wives and the living room trying to decide on a board Game Marshall and I shared a joint on the patio. How are you feeling? Marshall ask does he filled his lungs with smoke? When you're chronically ill or experiencing chronic pain everyone asks how you're feeling usually within the first few minutes. This act of asking of considering what constant pain might be like drains energy. I can see that energy drain play across their faces. It's not their fault. It's just the way it is. But Marshall was a doctor. He saw people in worse shape than me every day. He was asking because he wanted to know the answer. He was unusual that way he cared. I'm feeling better. More energy a bit more sleep. I took a hit off the joint passed it back to Marshall and started coughing. That's great. He said, I'm glad to hear it. Was All you the study if you hadn't been in such a hurry to lose it squash at probably still be lying in a hospital bed. Are you telling me I have to buy new balls. Oh, you can get those at the store now. You are feeling better. I'm guessing it's the kind of medication that takes a little while to kick in to build up in your blood like one of those new antidepressants. That makes sense. He told me struggling to keep the joint burning. You'd have to know that stuff wouldn't here. They don't tell us everything I mean we have the health parameters physiology most of the basic information we need. To keep you alive. Most of the basic information. That's right. He finally managed to relate the joint he passed it back. But you'd have to know if the medication took a long time to get in wouldn't you? would. So. So what? So does it I'm not supposed to talk about those specifics that with a former participant. Oh I'm still in the study. What are you talking about? Face to. Face to what face to. The study ended last month. I asked Mk to look into the two entries from Rose temples copy of the Mel. Ascetic. Atlas with the folded pages she agreed to do it as long as I. Promised I was only looking into this stuff from the safety of my desk and not planning to do any additional thinking or exploring up in the woods of northern British Columbia. Okay. Wow. So this is super weird. This garrison anomaly thing Israel. Okay what does that mean gets a little harder to dig up shit connected to this thing you know compared to your regular neighborhood tennis thing because it's so remote and nobody actually lives up there. But if you dig enough you'll find People going missing weird kids disappearing and coming back shoes filled with dead feet angry squirrels. Okay. Am I just added that last one? Released that similar. Yeah, and there's something else. This thing looks like it might be older way older. I mean these stories go back to the Haida back thousands of years, oral traditions, ancient myths, some of the totems connected to the area are the oldest that have ever been dated. That's up for. Debate. Why. Is that? Because a lot of them were destroyed. What happened They call it a case of mass hysteria. That doesn't sound good. It wasn't in one thousand, nine, hundred, nineteen people kill themselves right after they'd finished burning collection of priceless totem poles that were being moved to museum in Vancouver for restoration and display. A total shit show I sent you the info wedding look it over like you do in the coming back. Okay. Sounds good. Bye. M. K. sent over everything she had on the incident with the Totem Pole's. There wasn't much but it was interesting. And kind of terrifying. Right. This is pretty rough stuff. You're talking about the thing that reads kind of like a short story. Yeah. Are you gonNa read it on podcast? I was thinking you might read it. Sharon. McNary. The creepy shed. mind. Can Get Kelsey to do it. Sure. Great thank you. One of the pages MK sent over was a brief first person account of the incident translated into English from what is described as a combination of Algonquin Haida An. English. The summer before the big fire came everybody in the village was worried. There were many scouts coming back from the dark place and they were scared. Many. Return to the village blind. Led by ropes attached to the ones who could still see. They were talking about the destroyer how it was coming to cleanse. And how the village was going to be reborn The destroyer spread. It's black wings in the minds of the scouts moved into another place. The dark, place. The elders met every evening for six nights and decided they were going to purge the world of the destroyer. They would begin by bringing all of the special totems to the clearing near the river. There once all the totems dedicated to the destroyer were assembled, they would be burned. The scouts graves walked miles fell to the enormous totems and pulled them home using the heavy ropes. Wants the totems collected the elders gathered everyone for the ceremony. But there was one totem that was missing. The totem of the destroyer itself. which was far from the village in the dark place. For Scouts agreed to return to the dark place to tear down the totem of the destroyer and bring it back to the village. They returned six days later covered in blood and fell off. Without the totem. None of them could speak or see. But it wasn't because they become deaf and blind like the others return from the dark place. It was because they torn out each other's tongues and ripped out each other's is. That night while the village was sleeping those four scouts murdered every person in the village. I was out collecting wood for a late night fire and saw them moving from hut to hut branding and tearing men women children apart. Then, they burned the village and ran like wild animals to the totems in the clearing there they burned the totems and themselves. While they burned they danced. Not In pain. But in ecstasy their hands held high up to the night sky where the figure of the destroyer appeared. It's long wings fanning the flames of death. And guiding the dying scouts to the world of eternal darkness. That's where the story ends. Soon shortly after I'd gotten off the phone with M.. K.. I received another call. was from the police. They were contacting everyone sterling Schuster had seen over the last two weeks. When I asked them why? They told me that Sterling Schuster had been discovered dead hanging in his kitchen early yesterday morning. It's tennis. I'm nick. Silver. We'll be back again next week. Until then. Keep Looking.

It's time for entertainment interviews in the Sherpa screening. Room. Rabbit Niles seat and the bucket of popcorn. Don't crunch too loud or you'll miss Bush show. Now he's. James PODCAST. Rebels. Welcome to another day of Hollywood week here in the screening room with me Joe Rogan. No, it's be Jim. The podcast sharp stop that I. Know they get us confused all the time. I was lying anyway we're here for another interview with another actor. He is originally from Kentucky. He's been on the stage on TV in movies and has done voice over work as well. He's a guy named Dwight Turner Super Nice Guy Really Down to Earth had a lot of fun talking to him and I think you're going to enjoy the interview that I had with him. And of course, him being from Kentucky we talked about the first thing that actors from Kentucky would be talking about the Kentucky Derby. By Just made that up. Anyway. I don't listen to the conversation I'm sure you will enjoy it. So why don't we hit on down to the conference room at the Shah do hear my conversation with Mr Dwight Turner. Hello, rebels, we are here in the sharper screening room and. A perfectly decorated room behind him. On. His name is Mr Dwight Turner. He's done voiceovers and commercials. He's done television he's done movies. and. We're GONNA have some fun with him and we'll find a little bit about him and he is right now and he's great home, of Kentucky. Kentucky home right isn't with his own that he is a famous song for Kentucky Kentucky which is played at the beginning of the Kentucky. Derby. Every year which by the way the Kentucky Derby has been because of the pandemic situation postponed until the fall but they are evidently going to read it in the fall and I have gone gone twice and I want to go again now that beckoned is part of the United States by the way. Thank you for having me on the show. there are two experiences with going to the Kentucky Derby one is is the grandstand or the seats, and the other is be infield in the are two completely different experiences than I have done both. So back when I was in college I did Infield, which is more of like a big party in the middle. In a while later I, I've done the seats which I find to be a completely different experience both fund in various ways. But there's nothing else quite like the Derby. Okay now you you live in California normal right will I grew up in Kentucky I grew up in a very small town called Hassard Kentucky once I finished. School and got my degree which was in communications with the radio television emphasis I moved out to California and lived up there the entire time until recent years when my mom is going through health issues. So I moved back slamming Kentucky now but I do travel back and forth a lot between the west coast also up to New York While since I've been in this part of the country I mean I. Worked in. L. A. NEW YORK CHICAGO ATLANTA. Raleigh North Carolina Tennessee Kentucky Ohio Kansas. So I do a lot of traveling, but I honestly do not mind it because love to travel I always have a been lucky I've been to twenty three countries and every state in the US except for two. So and you you've been to Europe in as well as Asia Oh yeah. Yeah. Did you for acting or you just because you? You just love to travel or is. It depends it's a little bit of both, but I love to travel For Work, I love to travel for fun and. I. It's probably part of why I became an actor I loved people I love to travel the different areas and see what the people are like experience a culture. Experienced food experienced the historic sites. It's all fascinating to me. The favorite place that you've been to apart from Kentucky I wouldn't say favorite I have favorites. I Love Italy France I love Sweden and and Denmark van Sestri from Denmark. So it's always fascinating to go they are. Spain. France in you know in the US I mean, there's so many fascinating areas of this country. It's such a a wider Basque country and California itself you know has so much traveling between the various areas of California. It's. So, many beautiful areas. I. Wish more people would just get out and go and see all of classes because it really is an eye opening experience and. I imagine that part of the reason that I love to travel so much is because when I was a child, I, didn't I grew up. Very small isolated community in the mountains of Southeastern Kentucky a beautiful way to grow up but but it. Did Not prepare me for the world. Okay. That's fair enough. So when you you're at a different part of the country or around the world, is there anything? That you miss about Kentucky like maybe like a special burger place or a dream I'll no no, that's not the case at all. Because when I travel I never watch Su like I will never go to a fast food restaurant in a you know like Kentucky, Fried Chicken or something like that. You know in in another part of the world because I want to experience what's there so I will usually try to find well rated. That specializing in local fair. And and try that I've been pretty lucky for the most part. It'd be. You know always taking a chance. You never know if you're gonNA love the the food but but. It's always an interesting experience intimate goes with the territory of traveling experiencing that area. Taking the cuisine in the sites and absolutely navy right. Let's start with the beginning from you. Now you your first exposure to acting you're eight years old and you were in a church plant. Oh my gosh. Where did you? Where did you find that out? You've done your I have my sources gripe. Wow I. don't think there was. Yeah know we'll. We'll. He goes back even a little bit farther than that because I remember being a young kid and ask watching a variety show with dad on television and asking him how much I had a to do that because it seemed like it was so much fun and explain to me that now they pay now it's like Oh and and then yes I did a church played when I was I was a kid he had I've locked. And I think at that point I had the acting blog and I continued to do a series of local non-professional shows are estate shows And did not actually work professionally. Until I moved to L.. A.. And I. So I went to college. I got my degree in communications with rate of television emphasis I. Interned with CBS. and. But the whole time I knew that I wanted to be an actor I knew I if I did know how it was going to achieve it. I just knew that was what I wanted to do. And as soon as I finished college the very next month I moved out to La. It was culture shock to say the least in give mind you know even though I've gotten rid of my accent pretty much by that point. I grew up talking like this. I had a big accent Eissa started working on it on my own because I knew that if I want to pursue acting at that, I needed to do that otherwise would be stereotype did only certain roles. So I moved out to la with a fellow graduate. Who? Lasted a month even though we agreed we'd stay a year he lasted of mud in the move back to Kentucky era was. Out there, not knowing anyone or very naive about the industry I ended up moving to. A guest house up in the Hollywood hills with a fantastic view of La all the way from downtown to the ocean amd Bruce springsteen lived two doors away that was. Spirits because every once in a while, you'd have his windows open I could hear him. Practising and. So. I started studying with a fo- sh she taught me some really good acting skills right off the bat and one of those students in her class. had a birthday. Party. And I went to his birthday artie and this is where I really lucked out. I went to his birthday party and A Guy came up to me and said here you an actor and I said, yes. He. Keep content not acted professionally at that point but by suggest he said, you know I'm your friends agent. Here's my card come see me this Wednesday, Gimme call which could see me this Wednesday and I'm going to see if I gave them words like my call. He said at the time away seeing that Wednesday sent me on my first ever professional audition that Friday and I booked it. And it was four national. Commercial. And I was instantly Taft Hartley into SAG and. Soa. From my very first audition, ever I ended up booking national commercial which paid a really good amount of buddy back then and I was union. So then helped me get off to a good start and I remember at the time thinking, Wow, this is also easy, and then of course, I realized after little while net not necessarily the case it's A. Being being an actor is a bit like riding a roller coaster you know that If you love it. It's all worthwhile. Do you remember your first professional acting job which what what role you play? Well. That was that I had apart from like a TV series or a movie or anything like that. Euro apart from that commercial. Yes. Let's see. Oh my gosh, it goes way back there. There was A. So I started working with. With the. Schools because I was told you know, hey, you know USC, which is very true. Best schools in the world of mind this was before everything went to Internet, and so I was telling you know they have a board at USC and you can go and you could look to see what products are filming and send in your headshot resume. So I did that and I've ended up actually I've done quite a number of projects for USC before I started working in the things television and failed and And did a project for them at called back cuts I. think that was probably one of the first things I did that I was acting in. I was so naive. I didn't know what the terminology was. I didn't know why. The state hitting your mark and all that stuff like I had to learn that rather quickly and I just remember being so nervous in so scared we filmed that because of by unfamiliarity with the process but looking back on it looking back on that footage I you know I felt like I did a good job for not knowing one who is doing and and you know funny enough now them thinking about the never really thought about this until just now. I play a cop. And I've gone on years later to play all of these lead. The roles, please roles and In. So yeah, I didn't make that connection until just now that was going to be one of my questions. You played a lot of cops and detectives I know on discovery ideas well, and and a lot of doctors to yeah the did you ever think about doing that when you were? Going to be a copper doctor you just well now i. Know but I'm sure my mom wanted me to be a doctor in real life but but now, and it's funny because I asked Friends of in listen I love playing those roles and evidently I do a good job because we keep hiring for those roles but but I never it was never planned just kind of happened and. I did the first one that I did I believe a professional league first professional role like that they did was for so called the trade which filmed in a studio. Downtown La and it's one of those situations where you do one thing and people like then you're doing otherwise and then another one another one at then another way but I have to tell you I asked friends of mine who've known me for many years. Did. You think that would be playing like all of these likely detective roles in they're like now. How? Well jokes on you. But like I said I, mean it's a lot of nine. Enjoy it. I look forward to playing more those worlds as you telling me the story about playing detectors I'm wondering if maybe when you get pulled over for speeding and the couples of all Chinese note, was you. Worked together. Will you know? Oh, my Gosh There are two stories for that. One is a so when I did for instance, murder comes to town and that was filmed in Tennessee actually worked with to actual Tennessee police officers and real real police officers who trained in various ways like handcuffs The gun frisking the stop all of that, and which was beneficial because. You if you if you do something and you don't right people are gonNA write in email you about it you're gonNA hear about it so So it's good that they do try to have people consulting on these projects to make sure things are done correctly and little tidbit those two police officers actually laid background in the episode. So when you watch that episode You'll see to actual Tennessee police officers in the background and another interesting tidbit is. When I interviewed are win interviewed with our auditions for Chicago fire I was driving back and I was driving through Indiana and I was all excited because I thought that I'd book the show as Dr. Mary and I was on the phone with friend mind telling her about it and probably not paying as much attention as I should have and I got pulled over. And and so in the when he came up to the window and he says, I've been following you for said miles in you tuck your speeding and at times because it was a construction zone even though they were not doing destruction at the moment and So I said, oh I'm so sorry I said I just thought because fire and. was. All excited. I was on the phone telling my friend about it and He said you did whites. And I. Said just should go fire and I think the show. So anyway. Show. So what what ended up happening was he took my licence ran everything and and I got a warning which always very relieved about and You know things like that. Certainly do not happen all the time but I was happy that I get. You know a big ticket that day and and I imagined probably watching the show at some point and said, that's him. He was telling the truth. Wired. So a little little little interesting experience there any use that excuse me in the future Dwight. Chicago fire pick come up with something out. About. So when you worked on Chicago Fire Dr. Mary, what's it like working on a show with that much buds I know? Whole Wednesday night. Thing I. Guess We'll here in the states about the Chicago shows is in it. You feel like you're part of something. Really. Larger than you yeah. Yeah. We'll. You know anytime. You're working on a show of that caliber absolutely Now I will tell you that coming from la I did not know quite what to expect because you know the Chicago but I would very pleasantly surprised everybody do exactly what they were doing. It was like clockwork and they were so top of everything it made it a really fantastic experience and very. Enjoyable experience that I would love to do more with you know I would love to work on more of the Chicago shows. So Claire Simon, if you're listening, there's the casting director for a lot of those Chicago chats. Paging, Dr May vary Beijing. Unfortunately. I was Otis's doctor and Otis died so. Now he did die undermined care but I actually was the one who let him go back to being a fire but you know you just made me think about something. That actually had happened last year, but I did find out about it until probably about three weeks ago after. A pass away on the show a Chicago fire did a minute and a half a video of Otis's best moments in One of his moments with Dr May vary was in their semi it'd be a flashback. Exactly. Exactly. I want to tell you a little bit about your movie career and you had some really interesting roles and you worked in interesting situations than you did a movie called out sorcery that debuting COMECON. Yeah. Now this you know you never know what's GonNa Happen what might happen with some of these projects This is one of the most amazing and unexpected points in my career because you know I'd I'd I'd done a lot of. Projects with. USC. University of southern. California one best schools out there Loyola Chapman Ucla, and so I did this film with seaside, which is cal state northridge it. They have a good film program, but it's not known alike on the same level as USC for instance, and this was with a group of Undergrad students and outsource Sary's about a source or that gets outsourced than I play his me boss outsources. So. We did this. Film and the next thing you know it goes to comic con it premiered at Comic Con we did a panel at comic con and it was nominated best humor filming in twenty eleven. That was the year for me. It was a completely fascinating experience because I had never been to comic on in didn't know whole lot about it. So the IP me for the entire week with all the parties. It was a world wet. It just goes to show like that. You never know what might happen with one of these projects. I did another project it's called the Gestapo versus granting and that ended up being a finalist for project greenlight with Matt, Damon and Ben, Affleck Hbo, and once again I mean that was a completely unexpected thing. You just never know and you also got to work with Nick, detoro and Talia Shire in the the deported. Yes. In that that was a fun experience Tala I did not know I was going to be working with until. The day of and. The way. I. I know. It was working with Nick. But. I'm sitting there in hair makeup and. Here's this lady sitting next to me. You're finishing up her hair. It's really nice and we're having conversations pleasant conversation and the guy finishes her hair any reaches down pulls. Out these two. DVD's and the answer tour and he says, would you mind and? I just loved you in in both of these. Yourself headed tastic and. She's like, of course, she starts signing them look like rocky doing I'm like Oh my God Talia. Shire so so she ended up being the absolute nicest person I really enjoy working with. You'd never had the temptation to go your. No because I figure sees her death so many times. She probably wants to punch someone. WOULD THEY DO I? Get. And plus away especially coming from the rocky fell so it so I I did I held back. You get a movie called the spirit of seventy six in you. You played a real person in not. Portraying a real person Yes and So that certainly had a political sway to it interesting though thing about that is it was filmed in your candidate really tell from from watching watching the film, but it was found in this magnificent house in Malibu at. Looked out towards the? Ocean. And I, remember thinking you know I I I've had the opportunity to film in some brain locations. And that was that was one in particular. Yeah I. It's it's interesting the. Whole political thing. So I. Had A couple of things this year they've never happened before one that is indika musical in it's it's has a political. Sway to it's called day at the White House. and. You know it's the most fascinating thing because I've never done a musical. I can certainly sing I Am Not trains. In. In the way that Broadway singers are trained and I am not a big reader of music. But I was asked audition for this and I turned it down at first. and was asked to audition again and I did and I booked the lead male romantic role. So here I am a person who has never done a musical before and I need a lead row for this musical. As pretty incredible. Well, it's it's it's an amazing experience I just want to do an incredibly. Top notch professional job he added but I will say that it has been a bit interesting because we have not been able to rehearse the in person because of the pandemic. Now, we did how we were able to have one rehearsal. Recently and Hopefully, we're going to have more soon what's going to happen with that show though because we can't have audiences is we're to do a live cast album and then we're going to do a live I'm sorry not live cast a cast album that we're going to do a live radio broadcasts of the show, and in hopefully eventually, we'll be able to have audiences back. He had be able to the show up. And it'd be nice if it were able to eventually go to New York, which is where the composer is fraud. He currently has a show running off Broadway while not at the moment because there are no audiences at the moment, but he has a show off Broadway, and then the writer director is award winning himself, and so they have some weight behind the show. That's interesting that you doing radio show of a musical especially when you think back to the thirties and there was no TV or anything like that everybody was gathered around the radio, and here you are doing something that you probably could have maybe streamed but you gotta go an old school with it. Yeah Yeah and I think that was the of the idea wants this pandemic thing fell into place I mean it's it certainly interesting situation I in it's definitely affected me. You Know I. The year started off really well and I had. Five will. Actually, six projects and. Everything to you know. On old orders are canceled and my first project was cancelled March twenty first. And that was another first for me was It was an interesting situation where I done lifestyle bottling for products for people that don't. Work for companies and products, and I've never been a runway model that's completely different thing and I was asked to audition for big runway show I did and was booked on that show was going to happen March twenty first. That was the first thing that I had was canceled because of covid and I remember feeling very frustrated at the time. But now looking back on, it's like everything else. was canceled or postponed as well. That was just the that was just the beginning of. Yeah you're right. You're not alone with the projects come into a dead halt right now not all and listen. It's not just me. It's not just my industry. It's it's so many people in industries around the world. In a lot of people who are in a lot worse situation than I am so. and. Let's just hope that sooner rather than later we can get back to living our lives again like we'd like to because for me I truly love what do I truly love acting and so to be in this period where he he can't do it or. It's difficult to do it. Is Tough and fun for me because keep in mind I'm a person who has actually cancelled vacations because I booked a project in to me. It was more fun to go work on the project was to go on vacation. So that gives you the idea of how much I love what I do. So to the end of this period where we can't really work like we did its it's frustrating. There was one the question that I was dead wanted to ask you did a show called bear bear tortoise it was an end up like each t. v. yes mill that Oh gosh. This very interesting project too because The. One of the the the main character in the show he he had an appearance on the office river, the should series the office and and so he started this show and there were a lot of wonderful. Japanese actors involved in this and it was very interesting experience for me because I don't speak to happening. We filmed a season. Of that you know. I have to say it was one of the most fascinating experiences you know their number experiences in my career but this was particularly fascinating just because of the the cultural differences that made it both a lot of fun and at times challenging but but very enjoyable and I would love to to work with them again. It did go to Japanese television. So it started out here it was picked up by Japanese TV and was airing their. They actually even oh my gosh that even in his interesting to watch the even did like subtitles and in parts of it in Japanese for the Japanese audience, it definitely sounds like a unique kind of thing you never knew. Under ended up in. Tokyo's wait a minute. I know you right. Exactly and Oh. My Gosh. I can have that can happen at the most interesting times. No, of course. I get recognized for being on Chicago fire from time time, and it's interesting what people recognize. Me Four or what what I if I'm out and about assist Chicago fire's big one another one was a thousand ways to die which has such a cult following I had no idea no idea when I did when I Was Hired for that show Oh and by the way my guy going to tell us that I will win I, auditioned for that show I honestly did not I was not happy with my addition I didn't like what I did and I remembered calling a friend when I got to the car and saying well definitely didn't book that and then I booked it and so So the show was fun it was fun to do what I found out after. I did the show like what a following that it has in I will be out and about full recognize me from a thousand ways to die which I did years ago. Your your death was like in the three hundreds and you you put the metal pellets into your smoothie in drinking I think that was. Your character don but not on purpose and keep in mind as our our our office on true stories. All based on true stories and So I played linney and Linney was running a Ponzi scheme me in the Fed's. Get tipped on this they're coming to rate his off as he gets tipped on them coming guerrillas office. So it so he Gets his secretary and they start trying to shred all the evidence. So they're. Putting all these papers through the paper shredder and he would get nervous. He would drink these robo drinks, which is little bubbles in them. What he had one of those Bucky ball sculptures on his desk, which are those little bit Tallec ball sculptures that cling together and he got mad at one point threw it on the desk and two of those little metal balls into his boba drink any drank like they were little bopha Abbasi didn't realize it. He would have been okay if it had been one but being to. The magnetics of it. Well, it didn't work out for him very well inside. Boom. Yes how PONZI COME TO AN END Exactly exactly. Okay. So why are you ready for totally random questions otherwise known as the TR Q.. Let's it. Totally totally. Random questions. Totally totally. Questions. Had To win before we. Go. Nuts only read the question. Now you've done voice over as green lantern? Fix Six. Flags. What would you want your superpower to be if you could have won? Oh. My Gosh. I think I would want my superpower to be able to fly. I like. Traveling, easier for you tim well exactly and that probably comes from years of living in La. Where on a daily basis I wish. I could just why Horrible traffic. yes. Yes. All right, and you also did voiceovers for Web MD is that correct? So I'm going to put you to work here. If you could warn the viewers of the possible side effects of listening to podcasts. With. Your web MD. will. Be Aware that the. Sherpur. Screening Room could have possibles unintended side effects listed with caution. At your own. Owned I didn't WanNa make it too dreary. I would have been. Okay. Wouldn't be offended. I like side effects include nausea. No no pal I actually I enjoy your interviews sil-. So I would give you actually a passing grade from the doctor and I know you do a lot of different accents. Do you have like a favorite accent that you like to do? That may be just kind of break into every once in a while. I. Mean I would say that it has to be the one that I only got to use for the very first time last year my entire career and that's the one that I grew up with because I grew up talking like this and tell us about twelve years old and then I kind of. Got Rid of it but I mean I seriously. I grew up talking like this is a kid. This is this is it and And believe it or not. I never got to use that the whole time. Every single time tire career would I would audition for role that used used it I. Never never both did they I they well. Yeah and then finally last year I booked a series where I got to use it over a non episodes of that series so. Of Fun for me, but you know what it'd been. So long since I've been using it that I had actually think about. Well now that you back home, do you find yourself slipping into Your Kentucky? Voice or oh, sure Abed but not completely. So you know when I when I spent time in La know course everyone around you speaking Sir Wayne you search sort of volunteer advocate up back here Kentucky. Yes. Everyone is speaking with a bit of an accent now. Wearing them now is near Louisville Kentucky. So the accent is not as thick as it is in southeastern Kentucky blight, you cannot help. But pick it up in fall into it a bit when it's around you all the time and it's part of the fun of it. I know you said, there were a couple of things that you can't discuss because if we're just kind of waiting for things are there any projects that we should keep an eye open for you? Yes there are So that pact is, is that series that I worked on last year and that's going to be coming out us. posibly this fall and then the musical is called a day at the White House that in rehearsals for and so stay tuned on bad it'll be. Fantastic win audiences can come back and we can put that up working. I look forward to that the series which I signed it in the four cannot talk about the details of that. But what I can say is that it A very well known star of a couple of other series. If you go onto IMDB. So I m D dot me Ford slashed White Turner That's Miami, IMDB page and. I'm listed on there as rumored for that series. So if you do a little detective work, you can probably figure it out. and. There's a film that supposed to come out in California desert's. Bat his been postponed because of the pandemic would love to see that go forward and then the runway show may go forward in the fall. We'll see we'll see there's been some talk about it. And then there's another project that I was actually just The producer. A project is actually getting ready to release another up film that he did and I was just talking to him about moving court at some point with a feature film version of A. Product that I did a teaser for last year and so So we'll see if that goes forward but very interesting thing was. An an actress that you know some of the sometimes you think like, wow, the synchronicity of why the chances of that happening. So the. Actress that I worked with on that. For that project I saw just two random points recently just like I mean like the chances were a one in the mail yet and in it happened within the same week. So So that was very interesting. We laughed about it and said. Maybe this is a sign that the project will go forward and then I ended up talking to the producer. So all badges completely random. So. We've been talking to you Mr Turner and I'm sure your mom is really proud of you being a good son in taking care of her and everything we wish all the best for her well. Thank you and try out.

I WanNa, remind you guys check out the Dan lebatardshow was stu gods there on ESPN radio and ESPN news on Your TV ten to twelve eastern time. But they also put out original digital content before and after every show before we get to ask, Marty I have big camping trip coming up this weekend we're going out to western North Carolina with a bond your friends. This camping area out there where they have this permanent. Settlement of airstream. The airstream stay there. and. You drive to the airstream. And you stay in the airstream. And It apparently is gorgeous and. And it's GonNa be fun to just unplug for a weekend. Now, I will be will be doing Marty and McGee live from that camping area on Saturday morning. Camera to I am going to be on camera. Yes. I I just want people just like to they treat it like Game Day and dislike hold up signs and stuff Bindu and We already have a plan where my buddy is a bunch of a bunch of our friends that have had a supper club group of friends for twenty plus years now, and now we all have kids in their teens and Again, we just been. France for so long ever since I moved to Charlotte basically ever since Laney and I got married one hundred and fifteen years ago. It's a very special group of people. It's a very special group of spirits being around them really fills up my tank because a lot of the discouraging energy that. I feel in social media or in traditional media or elsewhere I'm completely refreshed and renewed when I'm around these guys and hear their laughter and their perspectives from their walks and so I'm looking for very much but we are bringing six different cooking methods. We're bringing grills were bringing flattop grills were bringing friars. We're bringing this that, and so my buddy Tony who's actually my neighbor he lives three or four doors down from me. He is bringing in his flattop grill. And he's GonNa put on Saturday morning. I'm GonNa I. Told Him I I'M GONNA set him up in behind me in my shot like when we do the Mardian McGee Thanksgiving Extravaganza, we have a buffet line behind us. And throughout the entire Thanksgiving show where I'm wearing a Turkey outfit McGee looks like a pilgrim. We have the entire staff of the southeastern conference network and they're moving behind us in the buffy line getting their Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey and stuffing cranberry sauce. and. So my buddy Tony is going to set his flattop behind me and he's GonNa make breakfast man the whole show and people will be meandering in and out of the shot the whole time it's mark mcghee. So that's what we do and it's going to be a spectacle and we've already called the campground. We did some RECON. We. Call the campground and we inquired about the Internet service and whether it was any good guy shares us it's great. and. The Guy who owns the campground is like Travis rock hold. The Ohio State Fan if he says, it's good Internet than I trust. The man he is wife is hard core war Damn Eagle. So she super pont. That Marty McGee is coming to the campground. So we'll see how that all transpired but I tell you all of that. To tell you this, I have stocked up on goody's headache powder. Because we have. I would say collectively, we're probably going to take. Let's see six. Hundred Twenty to forty. We're probably take ten twelve cases of beer something like that, and so it could get pretty gnarly. I expect Saturday morning with Marty McGee to be. A full blown thundercloud I don't think partly cloudy is going to suffice I think is going to be worse. Salesman you have the mountains. Your dear friends, a campfire country music kids running around making s'mores. I mean, that's a recipe for thunderstorm. So with this ten or twelve cases of beer. Do, you just go and get a little of everything. What's your shopping method for something like this we made the decision. So all these guys were over at House last weekend. and. We made the decision. First of all, we turned on college football y'all. I mean I can't wait to. We're. A few days away from. The ACC play football. We're a few days away from. The S. E. C. T. and up a football. and. I'm trying to temper my excitement I'm trying to just remain composed but down here down south. The weather has started to shift just a little bit. The humidity has started to. Make its way away from us. Thank. God. and. I walk outside in the morning. To take the dog out it's got that it's not crisp per se yet but it's not that just unbelievably biting humidity that takes your breath away when you walk out during the summertime I'm glad that you have some excitement because right now I have. Zero, I repeat zero. Excitement for college, we'll get into that in just a minute because we should have that conversation on a podcast when we don't have any guests are so back to your question about the. In strategy that I take with with cold beer. The boys were over here and we started discussing it and. It became a B. be prospect. So I'm like, okay, I'm only responsible for my beer. Well I know that I'm GonNa be going and buying some fancy pants. Rosie CIDERS. For Laney because she really likes these things. Have you heard of this? Single. But not deciders. So these they make deciders and there several different varieties. That are rosy wine, ciders. Aunt Laney loves them the real easy drinking summertime Bob. and. So I'll go buy a bunch of those and four of them cost like fifteen dollars. I mean it. It'll break your wallet son. But. Momma ain't happy. Nobody's happy. So I'm GonNa, go by the Rosa ciders from. For me, I'm thinking that I'll probably I'll probably stay in the canned Pacifico Lane. because. They're real easy to drink. And they're super refreshing and they have enough. Punch packed in them. That, they do the job you know throw line in there and you're rolling. We'll see that's the thing is if you're gonNA day drink. You can't be role. Jack. Daniels. Ten am a beer beer that like you said has a little punch liked the taste but you can day drink with. That's exactly where I am with with Pacifico. Most of my boys are doing you know Miller light coors light. So I may get a few course lights. I don't know I'm pretty easy dude. If you give me a course with alarming, I'm good I. Don't like putting the line then my beer. I'll put alarm in any anything that's domestic and cold. If you put a lime in I mean. Even. I mean, even the ones I don't really particularly care for. I can handle it but then. To your point once the fire is Roland and the sun goes down and guitars come out. I will probably shift to Tennessee Brown water. And have a little bit of Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey. So that's my plan now, are you usually the one that takes lead on the playlist at nighttime around the fire or is it a a group effort on what's being played? It's a group effort, but it usually originates on my phone. So I kinda have last Ryder refusal on what is played. But it's I mean look it's a very. It's a it's a diverse group from very diverse backgrounds and very diverse musical tastes. And So you're gonNA I mean it's to be everything from you're going to of course, we're going to be listened. WE'LL BE WE'LL START I'm sure with. Modern Day. I don't know if the words contemporary out of Contemporary Country Music is even think artists. Radio country. Yeah we'll start with some we'll start with like. You know summertime type of country music in in the modern era. then. We'll make our way towards classic country as the Sun makes its way towards the Western. Sky. I'm sure at some point in their there will be some baby got back requested. There will be some tribe called quest requested. There will be some some nineties early to mid nineties era hip hop, which is by I'm a humongous Fan I. Don't know if we've ever discussed that on here. But. I'm a huge nine hip hop. Fan Huge. and. So we'll be playing some of that ladies, ladies will be happy about that and then We'll probably make our way over to some nineties alternative, which I'm also a huge fan. I love that era of I mean it's not I don't even consider that rock and roll like I don't consider. S. T. P. and Pearl. Jam and all of those bands from that era alison chains I. Don't consider them rock and roll. Consider them alternative. an. But I love the I love that era of of quote unquote grunge. So we'll have a little bit of that and then we'll make our way all the way back around I rear into our elbow will be playing classic country around the Fire I'm sure. But all genres will be represented and that's I mean I love it. Now, we're not going to be sitting around not doing anything all day either we're going on hikes. We're going to be playing games will go on bike rides. So I'm taking my fishing pole on. Amir, apparently, there's a pond out there we can wet aligned so I'll be doing some fishing. What's your favorites long game to play? I mean. I would guess Cornhole I really liked it. I liked that game I don't know what exactly is called, but we played on the beach in the summer. When I'm up at shore, it's like a trash can and you have a Frisbee, Chan Jan K and jam. That's phone. I liked that game a lot. What is the Best Yard game? So there's that one. There's one that has some key BC piping with golf balls on a rope the name we call it it's GonNa be set on this podcast. Yes they I'll let you say that's what we play for ever on the beach play this game called washers. We just put like a basically A. Circular. Hole in the sand and use try to slide the washers into the whole. also game there's like these bottles that are on a you try to knock off. Well we do that. But we have like a thirty thirty trying to knock the bottle off the top of the fence post. Beer Darts. So. Yeah. We'll be playing all those I. Mean it's GonNa. Be a blast. I can't wait I'm just hoping that our weather's good. Kinda dicey looking right now. But regardless, it's going to be a lot of fun to be there with my friends and. And our kids and just unplug a little bit. It'll be a great time. We'll get back to the podcast in one moment but first goodies understands that you cannot afford to let a hangover, slow you down and for a hangover that's real tough. You need real medicine goodies.

Smith's America have had a very unique week. I've had some interviews this week that I'm just a little taken aback by. This is a teaser I can't get into who I've interviewed or what the project is but. Man I have been so invigorated and so inspired by having the opportunity to interview. Some of the most accomplished people in the history of sport and learn about them. I can't wait sometime down the line to share with you guys what exactly the project is but I'm working on something that I feel like is really really pretty special. And so that's been my week so far and I guess now it's time to get into ask Marty. All right, our first question comes from James, Kook. Marty Best Sports announcer of your lifetime you radio TV doesn't matter. Voice you grew up on. There's a gentleman who now works for ACC network actually his name's Bill Ralph. and Bill was the voice of the Virginia. Tech, hokies, my whole life growing up. As you guys know any of you who? Grew adoring any sports team whomever that radio voice was. Is One of the voices of the soundtrack of your formative years. Now, I could say Keith, Jackson to to. Say because I'm so old. The game of the week every week Mr Jackson called. The way that he called a football game and the amazing phrasing. In his cadence and the and the phrases that he used whether it was you know Whoa Nellie of course is probably his most famous. One. But you knew when you heard his voice that was a big moment you knew when you heard his voice that you were witnessing something. Special important to a lot of people and. I can't describe the way transported me personally as a young person. who was so infatuated with spore who watch these Games Notre Dame in USC or Miami Penn State or whatever those teams were. Nebraska Homa and it seemed like another planet those teams did not seem like they were of this earth to me. and Mr Jackson brought them to my house. And so I never the chance to meet him I would love to have had that opportunity. I'll never forget this. This is a an aside but. Brent. Musburger of course to is is one of those voices we had Mr Mr Brandt. Already. Miss. America what Travis last year maybe. I don't remember lost this year. I think it was two thousand nineteen at some point and I remember. When I first started covering NASCAR for. This. Two thousand seven. And we were at the season opening Daytona five hundred and I was cooked. I mean at this time of. The ESPN NASCAR regime we just come back into being a broadcast partner of the sport. So we had just started NASCAR. Now. And we were creating so much content I can't describe it to you and I know this if we had social media, then the way we have social media now I can't fathom the amount of content we would have been creating because we would have been flooding all those platforms just like we were linear. TV At that time we are creating so much content and I'm cooked I mean I'm just I'm overwhelmed. Oku. About TV. I feel like I'm in this weird emotional state where am I? Did I make a mistake should not have done this I had a real comfortable life as a writer I was making a decent living I kinda wrote what I wanted and said what I wanted and then I get on the elevator. In the Plaza Hotel in Daytona Beach. Florida. And I kind of have my head down I'm not really paying much attention. I'm the only person on the elevator will the doors are shutting? An Dean. Then the doors open right back up somebody head. Hit the button and you're like, shh come man well Brent, musburger walks onto the elevator. So it's just me and Brent musburger standing on celebrator in applause a hotel in Daytona Beach Florida I don't know what to say I mean I'm looking at. It's like looking at up. It's like they're not even real people I don only way I can only thing I can think of to describe it is when you would like see your third grade teacher at the grocery store. And there it's a wait there real people. That is such. A good comparison. That's so true. The first person he saw your teacher like way. They exist. What you're, you're wearing jogging pants what so anyway just said how you doing Sir and he in that Brent Musburger, you are looking live voice. Said young man, how are you tonight and so we start chatting and I'll tell him my name he's like Oh, you know. Not only did he? Acknowledge me and knew who I was. He said he had been studying some of the things that I had written. In. Order to prepare himself. and. So I just man I couldn't wait to get to that hotel room and call my daddy. I call my daddy and I told him that and it was like you're taking all the way back to being a four year old little boy. Wearing a Pittsburgh steelers letterman jacket little boy size, sears, roebuck catalog. Pittsburgh steelers jacket with like pleasure sleeves that I lift a left the jacket too close to the baseboard heater one night and the whole sleeve shriveled up. But. That's what we did and I watched daddy was a humongous steelers fan. He looked Terry Bradshaw more by on Earth. And I'm just taking back there and we're having this conversation and may my dad's so proud? So that was a really neat moment for me to have that time with with Brent and. Just you know you never get used to the fact that like man guy he actually knows like who the hell I am. That's crazy. But yeah. So I would say Bill Ralph back to where we started Bill Ralph was. That that guy that brought Virginia Tech to me. And we would even we'd be sitting at the game listening to him. He just had a very unique way of bringing that excitement that we all knew and felt. To. Our House or to our truck. And I. Have had conversations with Bill. Since he he left Virginia Tech and went to UCLA. To become the voice of the Bruins and he didn't stay out very long. Because it wasn't the same. Thing that it is Oh, here on the east coast. So he came back and now he's calling games FRAC- network as well, and we become friends and that too is very odd. So how was that for a rambling answer? I that was a good one We're GONNA. Go to Scott Keenan seven to four. What is your favorite food to Cook Marty? Favorite, food to cook. Goto. is this for me Yes for you. Well I'm I'm pretty simple I'm a fish. Chicken. Shrimp guy that's Kinda wear where my where my cooking lives. Now, if if you want me to answer the question, my favorite thing to cook honestly it's chicken strips and Broccoli. For my three children. Because, I know that they're going to eat it I know they're getting nutritional value and I don't get a whole hell of a lot of static for what I'm putting in front of them. Now I I will say this I admire so deeply. Parents. I had this conversation with Justin, Moore? Justin Kooks. What he cooks? Editor they, don't. And there are certain nights where that's the case in the Smith household. But that's not the case, right? Because our schedules or so zany. That, we just can't eat as a family every night I wish we could I wish that we had that routine in our home, but we don't, and for those of you who do also awesome on you because I think that's so good for the kids, I think it's great to have that structure and that expectation that you're spending that time fellow. Shipping together we don't have that every night we do do it. We don't have it every night and those nights when we don't because MIA has danced for at five thirty and in the middle of that Vivian has to go to dance and Cameron has this and a lot of y'all can relate to that to the crazy schedules that our kids keep. And all the different practices. And all the different events and all the different outings. And so a lot of you can relate with what I'm saying that it's very difficult to sit down as a family and so on those nights when we can't do that and we don't have that fellowship together we're we're looking each other in the eye. Also as an aside, I'm a little bit crazy about devices. There are no devices at our table when we're eating together. Don't bring 'em. Leave your room lay more they go put them in the drawer, but we're together as a unit. In that moment, we're not distracted. We are where our feet are. That's important and that that includes in public to. back when we actually had the opportunity to go to restaurants. We don't do that. It's important to. have. Each other in that moment be distracted in a phone or something. but on those nights when I can't have a family meal. There are certain to's that I know my kids are all going. And they all eat. The same thing and whatnot and chicken strips are undefeated in this house. You can never go wrong with chicken. Yeah you can. You can. You can go wrong with chicken you know go desperately wrong with chicken. Well As it specifically about the kids I make this baked. Chicken breast meal. That is delectable. It's very simple. It's It's organic. Chicken breast he cut the chicken chunks. You Brown. The chicken and then you throw it in a baking. Pan with. Olive oil all kinds of spices. And Broccoli. And you bake it like forty minutes at. Three three. Or four hundred. and. Of the all that olive oil. Spices. Permeate chicken and it's just It's so tasty and so easy. My kids like they roll their eyes and that. But again, that's one of those deals where it's like dude, this is what this is your choice. My parents made me clean my point and I had to sit at the table until every bike was gone. There was no debating it. There was no discussing it here is your pork chop eight two. Pork Chop. That's what you get. That's how it was in my house growing up to where my daddy roles women Mama role mom worked hard. She made these great meals southern cooking as it gets and I loved some and I didn't love some fried Okra. My mom used to Fried Okra and I it out gag it up man I hated that stuff. which a lot of y'all from the south are going to be like, what are you really southern but I had to sit there until that Okra was going. I tell my kids this I'm not making you eat anything. It is your choice, but you ain't nothing. But what's in front of you do they're not like the taste of the chicken or what don't they consistency? Really. So something that we grew up on I. Don't know different names it's called bumps stu it's pickier put the protein in there and then you pick all the little fixings I go in the foil and so each person has their own bag, oven her and on the. Grill, and so they can kind of pick exactly what vegetables are seasoning. They want on this chicken or or meet like we a lot of times you do hamburger but I posted on chicken salt there cut up potatoes. There's some peppers and carrots and there was some seasoning but in foil and then you bring it out and it's it's good to go. That's good.

We'll take a break from food for second and go to Alex Allen Esta what book are you reading right now or what's your favorite genre? Believe. It or not. So I haven't received McGee's book yet. our brother. Ryan McGee has a new book coming out on the fifteenth of September called sidelines and bloodlines, and he wrote this with his dad and his brother. and. It's kind of about their their bond through college football. His Dad was a referee for years and years and years, and they have great stories, great stores, tons of great stories. So I've ordered that and. I did not wait for the Freebie copy. that. The author has the opportunity to send out to the media that you're publisher will send on your behalf anytime that a friend of mine writes a book I by the book. Want. Support, them. Exactly because especially I, always kind of. In that space. But I didn't have the same. Same. Conviction about it that I do now that I am an author. because. I realized man. Like that level of support. Is Difficult, to articulate. The way that it feels. When your friend when you've poured so much of yourself into a project like that. and. Your friends whether they want to read it or not whether they care about that story or or that path or lesson or not. They, buy it because they love you. And then What I found in the last year since my book came out. When when they're surprised when they're surprised by how the message? Impacts them. And then they buy it for their dad and then they buy it for their friends and then they buy three copies because they want you to sign them for these these teachers that work with who they feel I could use. Some inspiration. then it becomes a whole different. level. With that book I just since we don't have any guests and we're just kind of on a ramble session. Anyway, I want. I'm with that book with Never Settle Sports Family in the American soul. That I wrote in two thousand and nineteen, actually the fall of two, thousand eighteen. Finished in January of two, thousand nineteen and it came out August sixth of last year. So about a year ago. I knew that I wanted to make myself vulnerable so that I might change a life. A might impact a life and I wanted to write a book like a record. Because as we know, as we've said Ad Nauseam on this podcast, a song can not only impact a life it can save a life. At Apple, if I share the sorrow of losing my parents. That's going to resonate with somebody if I share the euphoria in the nostalgia of small town high school football. There's GonNa be a lot old boys around this country who are in their forties who would sever a little toe to have the opportunity to strap up one more time and run out under those lights. I knew that would resonate. And what I've found Is Striking. The letters that show up at the house, the coaches who? I don't know if I've ever said this Marty Smith's America have I told you that Bose Williams. The head basketball coach at Texas am university. Whom I had not met until March of two thousand and twenty. He coached at Virginia Tech he coached Jimmy Buckets at Marquette. He's a great great man, a phenomenal motivator. He's GonNa turn him into a an SEC staple. In hoops. I never met him and I'll send the scores table during his shoot around before the aggies played Kentucky it was either late February or early March. One of the two of two, thousand twenty he walks over and I'm sitting beside Jimmy Dykes. Great Great Great Bass College basketball analyst for ESPN FORMER Former. Coach himself. He wrote a book this year. Boas walks over shakes Jimmy's hand. They've known each other for ages and ages and ages. and. Then he looks at me. And he knows what he said to me he built seventy five copies. Of. Never. Settle. Let me repeat this. Seventy five copies of never settle. Because it moved him to the point where he had that many people in his life that he wanted to read that message. And I just sat right down there at scores, table? Son and I was over come. There's nothing that you can. Say to express. How you feel it's just And now now we've taken it and we have this I of course, I partnered with tomorrow's team. You guys know that my brother Patrick Abraham who is a brilliant espn producer who is the sweetest of souls who has the kindest heart And his brothers They A. foundation charity, and their whole goal is to enrich the lives of young people namely children. Who may not have what we all have? and. We've used every single speech that I've ever done. Regarding surrounding, never settle and that's one thing about being an author you have the opportunity to do some speeches. We decided we're going to make a difference. and. We not only have. Raised that money, but we work for Disney Company. And Disney Company has the greatest philanthropic match program on the planet. Disney wants us to be graceful Disney wants us to be kind Disney wants us to give of ourselves and when we do give ourselves, Disney gives to. And we've been able to make differences. And we decided that with never settle. It is not a moment it is a movement. and. We're just getting started. So. that. Stuff's not easy to sit on here and discuss for me. No matter. What you may think of me and I know some of y'all. Some y'all. There's lot of people don't like me and that's okay. But I don't like. To sit on here and Promote No, you're the you're the the worst people might not think that's true but. How many times I would tell you hey, can you tweet out this or post this I have to stay on you about it so that is a fact that you are not a promoter. I think I think it's gotten. To a point now where when you can tangibly see. How it impacts people. It changes for me It does. I don't even remember the initial question I have no idea what you asked me. This is exactly what we said was going to be the initial question was what book are you reading and we made it to. Helping people out but that's just kind of how this podcast and how we roll as we go on. Tangents. Ironically let me tell you the book I'm reading. Right now. Friday Night Lights. My? Mother. Gave my father. In September of Nineteen Ninety. Friday Night Lights, of course, written by. This injure buzzed. Who I mean he? I. Think I. Read I started doing a little research on the book before I decided to crack it back, open my father. made me read it. And I I use the word may I didn't say asked me to read it. I didn't say suggested I remade me read it. In the fall of ninety one, I think. And I read it and it was a little too involved from a sociopolitical. Racial America perspective for my mind in Nineteen Ninety One In nineteen ninety, one, I was the fall of ninety one I had just turned fifteen. So it was a little bit over my head. And I have never read it since I have watched the movie. Of course I have I am infatuated with the television series with coach Taylor and Tammy and Riggins Jason Street and Matt Saracen and Smash I just started episode one yesterday I've never seen Michelle Do you are you're not going to be able to stop? It's so will done and of course Peterberg. WHO directed the movie? Also, is the director of executive producer of the television series, which I also did not know this until I went and started to research a little bit that buzzed bisson Jer the original author of the original Friday Night Lights book his cousin is Peterberg. Until I started studying so I decided that during this time when my own high school cannot play. When we're in this unique moment of Political fracture and such an unbelievable moment of this push for social justice and equality. You know what I need to go back and read Friday night lights again. I need to go back and read that book as a forty four year old adult WHO's a father? Who's WHO's experienced a lot and been immersed in a lot of different. Cultures now. And so I'm reading Friday Night Lights on Chapter Two at this point. And It's like it's unbelievable to read that book again The the reporting. So for those of you who don't know the background. Buzz. Juror was a Pulitzer Prize winning writer from the Philadelphia Inquirer. and. He took a year off. He was always fascinated by. Texas High School Football. So he took a year often he moved to Odessa Texas. Modus whole family he was married and had two small sons at the time I think suns. At the time two small children at the time. Moved them to Odessa Texas for your and he quite literally. He immersed himself with the with the Permian Panthers the the Permian High School football team that is it's Desa Texas and IT'S A. It's an institution. Of Texas High School football, it's every single. It's religion. It's every single. Story you've ever heard about the religious experience of Texas High School Football? So. The reporting in the book. Is is just Jaw dropping I mean it's it's so will reported. The The way that he. Develops every. Character in the book. And by character I mean individual there it real people. Whether. That's the quarterback Mike Wind chill and how much he struggled with the responsibility of being the quarterback. Of Mojo. Football. Whether it was don Billingsley who was trying to live up to his famous father's footsteps. Charlie Billingsley, who was an all state running back. For Permian Twenty. Years. Prior. Whether. It was Brian Chevrolets and he had such. Much. Larger dreams than stay in and Edessa Texas. So just the development of characters in the reporting that he did in that book. It's something else and if you haven't read the book, I can't. Possibly, recommended highly enough I think it's I. Think when I studied a little bit about the book on the Internet. Before, I started to read it again. I think that the number is more than two million copies sold. And it made me laugh Travis. Laney as a freshman at Radford University had some sort of literary course she took. And one of the books that they had to read during the semester was. Friday night lights and not only did she have to read Friday Night Lights. Buzzed business your came to Radford University in spoke to them. A pretty. Awesome. I. Wish I'd known I would go like. I wish. I would would've said, hey, you have to read this book and knots instead they give me some. Book I don't care about Sir Wayne and the Green Knight. That's what I. Read about Moby Dick. So, anyway, I'm reading Friday Night Lights. Right. Now you are going to love that net many is not a mini series series. What do you call it that show I don't know. It's a show series. There's like what five season or something you're GonNa love it I binged watched some of it. The other night it was on the e channel randomly happened upon it. We are going to do a subsequent show. About Friday night lights itself because when I'm done reading the book, I want to spend some time kind of breaking that down again well, and I saw you and mean kinds tweeting, and so we're GonNa try to get her on here in the next week or two talk a little Friday night lights than.

Now back to March Miss. America you brought this up last week on Mardi McGee show but I think it needs a little more attention. It comes from at late flower sixty three. Joe Borough was the captain of the offense last year our team. Well. He's no longer in college football. So we need a new captain and also we don't catch isn't there on defense so we need we need some captains. We do need some new captains. Look that has to be earned. So this is a question that I will defer until let's say mid October okay. These were seniors they graduated out of the Mardi McGee all-american program. and. I have I have my ideas of who I think. Those individuals might be. I will give you a preview of someone that is certainly in the running on the offensive side of the ball. It is newly minted Georgia quarterback J T Daniels. And the reason that jt Daniels has a great opportunity. Now given, you got to prove it on the field you gotta be tough as we Pecker Lips. You gotta be certified nuts which Joe Borough and cash Daniel are absolutely certifiably nuts v things jt meets all the off the field no question and that's why he has a leg up right now jt daniels all you gotTa do is go look at his Georgia team picture he's individual photograph for the Georgia bulldogs and you'll see. Doc. Holliday. From Tombstone. All He needs is a little hat. And a six shooter and he's Doc Holliday I guess he probably needs a flask to right I. Bet you he has a flask well, I can tell you this. He is the front runner on the offensive side of the football right now. IAGO. Checkout at. That amazing photograph of JT. I'm telling you. He does he not look like Doc Holliday. You're not wrong it's it's amazing if he. Performs just the littlest on the field then we've got our captain. And he's a baller look he's a baller dude. We'll see as an aside the fact Jamie Newman opted out that hurt that hurt Georgia. I think Daniels is going play very well. But Jamie Newman he's a real special player man and I think it was David pollock. Who tweeted with Jamie Newman? He was GonNa Pick Georgia as his national champion. And not now. So. We'll see what happens air but. Right now, front running clubhouse. Is Our boy J.. Daniels with his. Amazing Amazing, mustache. A front runner on the defensive side but We don't know fuller play football this fall so tough borland. We'll have to wait and find out if you can make the team or not because with the name. Tough well. I've said I. Don't Know How many times I've said is that was my name. I. Wish My name was tough Borland. That's the most linebacker name I've ever heard my life. And he's a Ballplayer Son It's amazing. Look Man. that. Big Tune thing. Okay it. It changes every day. The anger is so overwhelming. The frustration is so overwhelming. It's an emotional roller coaster. Yeah. I mean, I imagine it is and. You do your very best to maintain. Knowledge and keep your finger on the pulse of all the different meetings that are going on whether or not. They voted you got a a university president. Who who, in the notes claims that they voted and then in the public says. was very ambiguous about whether they voted. I mean it's it's just every day there's something new. I know that there are reporters who are on top of this and and they are talking to people every day that they are reporting every single. Moment every single aspect and variable that's happening on a daily basis because it changes every single day. and. Ultimately. I don't think they're gonNA play this fall. I don't I don't I was holding out hope and as we sit today. I would be stunned. If, they play this fall nothing shocks me anymore. So I'm not going to say it would shock me if they played because if they do they do. You could certainly count me among the surprised if they do. Because I just don't see if the vote was truly eleven to three. K. It was an eleven to three vote. You have to have nine yeses. In order to play the season, correct correct. If what's been reported of needing sixty percent of the votes is correct. Then you need nine votes you need nine though so you've gotta flip six presidents. In order to play and on top of that, you have the commissioner. WHO has doubled down in writing saying, we ain't change. Changing our mind. We ain't playing as yet to come out and release speaker say anything on the record to which makes you lied to believe that he's just going to. Stick with what he's guy does not show his face supposedly there. They've got seven schools that are saying yes now but that's like the even believe that I don't know what the WHO puts them on this my point you're hitting on it right there. What do you? What is real? And it's real and and it's hard to know what is real when there's no definitive. Statements being stated. By. The League. And this will be the first and hopefully last time I ever do this but. kudos to Jim Harbaugh and those guys to show up and. To, voice their displeasure like high say in other teams have had because the fact that he can't get a hold of their school president. I like to make fun of hardball. Lot. It's easy. But he's the football coach at that school and he can't get a phone call with the President I understand that he reports the but in a circumstance like this hardball deserves. A phone call with the president of. Then not only does he deserve a phone call? He deserves a meeting. He deserves an explanation. He deserves the president to stand in front of that football team and take every single question they have like takes one minute if that takes three hours if that takes five hours. That would those young men deserve aided Hutchinson told us that he had never seen the school presidents. Three years just yesterday is State Cudi out a photo of their new president. She was on the field with the field hockey team yesterday practicing with cashews former field hockey. She's not even on the job for two weeks and she's already met one of the teams eight Hutchinson. When the stars at the football team, you'd never seen the president. I would be so so so disappointed if I were those young men if I were certainly that coaching staff because the coaching staff has to answer to the parents. And they don't have any answers for the parents when they don't have any answers for the players when they don't have any answers for anybody. And then. People who made the vote The people who sat in the room quote unquote. And voted. Won't answer any questions about why they've hell about what about win about any of those? That is so gutless. And then to make it worse for those coaches knowledge if to talk to the family members of their players they have to try to recruit. Meanwhile all these other conferences are playing. You Know I. I've. Paid very close attention. To how social media is operating in the way that that the respective. Of these teams, the players, the administrators. Are Approaching it on social media. and. You're right I mean Ohio state is just guns ablaze. And they should be because. This this could really be the best team never was like this guy mean someone tweeted I hope that this is a thirty for thirty on the team that never was, but that's the way it's looking. At I don't. I don't know what I'm GonNa do this fall I've really watch a college football game. And I don't know what I'm GONNA. Be. Able to actually. Enjoy watching those games are FM, just, GonNa Watch a frustration. It'd be difficult and I can see why I mean when when when your school. When quite literally, your Alma Mater. Whom you have been passionate about since you were five years old. Is Not on the field. I. Can see why that is a very difficult but. To your point Kudos coach, Harbaugh? Man. I can tell you this I've seen it. I've walked it of of. I have seen firsthand. Be Conviction. And the. Passion. That he has for the young man that he coaches. I've seen it myself. been to Paris into Rome. And Ann Arbor. And Happy Valley into all kinds of different places with that team. And I've seen it. And so eventually. You can have patience for a little while, but eventually you run out of patience. And harbaugh's run out of patience. And they deserve a chance to lose by hundred points to highest state give him that chance. They. Deserve the opportunity to get a damn answer. That at the very least. They deserve every school that has had their season cancelled. `understand don't understand why especially if your president is an infectious disease expert. Stand up in front of them kids. And take the questions. I don't I just can't understand leadership. Fundamental leadership is owning your decision. and. I'm still waiting to see that leadership especially when this has been, the point of contention is they're claiming. You know the coronavirus, but they're not giving details. Meanwhile, the NCWA's doctor came out and said it's safe to play. So. You now definitely to come out and show your reasoning for why because The governing body is saying that it's okay all these other conferences. So at least come out and say, this is I the reasoning why X. Coming from my background I'm going with this. And then at least the parents can say, okay, we've. Heard it. At this point man, it's not happening. and. Again, even though some people didn't hear it, we had eight and Hutchinson own. A couple of weeks back. and. I mean he couldn't have been more blunt. I've been here three years. I've never seen the man. So. it's early and if they play I'll be very surprised. I won't be shocked nothing shocks me. I'll be very impressed. I've I'll end it with this and I think tweeted at might have textured too. If they play. An October or even get the announcement that they're playing. I have a bottle of Jack. Daniels. Eric. Church. That will get opened and if that happens to be tomorrow at ten, am will guess what bosses. Drinking today So they're. It. Just I don't know man. I don't to me I don't see value. In UNLESS, you're playing for a national championship. Unless you are like I. don't see the spring model. I don't see it. I don't understand how it works because. You are. That's entirely too many games in one calendar year for amateur athletes. and. Quite mean quite honestly Mike what do you play in for? I think. At, least the winner model which i. That's better than nothing. You're getting reps for those freshmen so they're not just taking an entire year off. You're basically. You're going to have to keep that team motivated to work to improve the following year that's basically I mean. They're going to be plenty motivated any word about that part I mean Kudos to these players that are still bus their tail right now practice hoping that they get that. Eleventh Hour. You know say. They need two weeks. Of the season, they need two weeks there really kickoff. Well, that's I texts body carpenter I said how many weeks would you need? He goes two to three weeks. Now mccrystal said eight weeks. Now I think a reporter also point the PAC twelve never got started really with they're practicing. So that's why I think the big ten to stop worrying about what the PAC twelve is. This isn't a group project anymore. The big worry about themselves and I think if they made the call this week. October tenth. Is. More than doable. I think this. I. Think Kevin Warren. Is. Kevin warned greatest hope is that the other leagues that are playing ultimately cannot play. That is his hope. Always, hoping that some of these games continue to get pushed back and then he can go see. I agree all right And I've been on forever having. We've wrapped enough. That's enough. Rest Marty if you think your questions and believe me, I've got him on a word doc now actually. Saved so we will get more of those don't worry people. OPPOR. We appreciate your questions. They were great. Thank you for sending them and carrying enough to to ask them. We appreciate it. And thank you for listening to my random rambling dribble today we appreciate y'all so much. Thank you for listening. we're so grateful for law enforcement officials all over the country. And keeping our community say thank you to our firemen running into the fire literally risking their lives to save others appreciate our military so much we live in a free country. And our military is the reason why So. Thank you so much to our men and women in uniform. As Marty Smith's America, we appreciate Y'ALL LISTEN We'll try better next time y'all have an amazing week. Stay safe out there.

Matthews beloved rock-n-roll Saxophone Hello Everybody Welcome to episode of Audio Judo. I'm Kyle Hello and I am Matthew. Today, we were talking about the album permanent waves by rush before we get started on that I. Just WanNa mentioned that we are proud members of the Pantheon podcast network. It is a group of podcast devoted music music commentary and all things associated. This network is growing exponentially with more and more content being at daily I encourage you to check it out at Pantheon podcasts, dot com, and then go back and listen to us. Yeah. There's some great episodes on their edges started listening to let it roll who, yeah, their newest episode, the one that I just listened to his the Beatles as the end of rock and roll we'll. Check that out. It's It's pretty good. I like. Cool. and. We are back to recording in the evening. Yes. We used to record late at night like midnight. Yeah. For this whole cove and thing, and then during lockdown during the day, and now even though cove is still going on, this is late July by the way, we have moved back to evening recording because it's too damn hot record during the day through be interested affects are stamina in any way it's hard to record in their steam coming out of your nose that picks up on the Mike. It's just It's horrible. ooh. So today we are tackling one of my very favorite albums from my favorite band permanent waves. Not The ban. to be clear this isn't only my favorite record of theirs but mostly my favorite record period of all time I think most people that know me have been wondering why I haven't done a rush album yet. and the answer is quite simple. My fear is that I won't say all the things I want to or need to say and regret the things I didn't say I've quite literally spend a lifetime listening to these albums pouring over liner notes, seeing them in concert reading books and articles. They have been my primary musical devotion and their words and music are very much lifelines for me. So maybe this is a bit of a tall order for us to cover in Addison. But I'm. GonNa. Try to keep myself somewhat edited keep the information concise that probably won't happen. You you listeners at home have the advantage of being able to look at the run time for this episode right now. We don't know what it is recording it obviously, but if you look at it and it starts with a five. I Apologize Matthew apologizes already also. So a this is your very favorite album very favorite band. Yes, and I hated it I'm just getting. That would make such grace. His trash I just been yelling I'd be yelling five hours. Before because you'd be yelling, but you couldn't get up because in the MIC wouldn't pick you up seed. We're trying to stand and wave your arms around Randy. got a lot of room noise. To Bend in. Can. You didn't angry yell one more tightly. Repeat it. For those of you who may have grown up in a vacuum or don't ever listen to me talk Russia's a Canadian power trio consisting of Alex Guitar Getty. Lee On bass. Keyboards vocals, and the late Great Neil Piot the professor on drums and percussion for more on his life and career. Please give episode listen from earlier this year called remembering the pert. For some personal memories. Rush was active from Nineteen, seventy, four to twenty fifteen between those years they released nineteen studio albums many live albums and compilations and one on twenty five separate world tours playing almost twenty four, hundred shows over those forty one years. though studio albums would amount to forty, five, million album soul and only the Beatles and rolling stones had more consecutive gold albums in all of rock and roll history. Wow stick that. And they would be inducted into the rock and Roll Hall of fame in two thousand thirteen after a much too long of a wait with with what might be the best rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction. Speech. The Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. Is One of the best speeches ever given and. Any Rush Fan knew exactly what he was saying yeah. Without him saying one word other than Blah. So to check it on Youtube just actually just type in bla-bla-bla you'll get Alex license speech, the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. Permanent. Waves, which is the album we're talking about today was their seventh studio was released on January fourteenth nineteen eighty One thing to be aware of for our younger listeners is that this is their seventh studio album in seven years. They released one in seventy, four, two and seventy, five, one in seventy, six, hundred, seventy, seven, one, and seventy, eight, and then this. And they also jammed a double live album into nineteen seventy six. You know because why not this amount of material is unheard of in today's Day and age of the musical landscape sides. The fact that it is much much easier and cheaper to produce music. Now there are still isn't this level of volume anywhere in the industry. And this is my own personal point of view but producing that much music in that short a time does a couple of things one it makes you a better player. Develop proficiency with your instrument because there's literally no downtime you're playing concerts night after night you're writing on the road after these concerts knowing that you only have a few weeks to record when you finally get the chance to do so. To it makes you better arrangers. Spending that kind of intimate time with songs while you're on the road and then constantly in and out of the studio helps you to understand song structures better and how to lay things out three. It makes you better editors of your own music. you know what you're capable of helps you to experiment more and you have a solid understanding of the studio process and four. You are never really that far out of the public's I. Literally going from one album to the next and touring touring touring they must have felt like that band was constantly in your town playing show. So, like I said, this is their seventh album. They just finished their last tour supporting the nineteen seventy-eight released hemispheres and for the first time in their career they did something they took time off who? Six weeks to be exact. The most time they had taken away from each other in the past seven years had been two weeks. So this must have felt like an eternity. Yeah, and it was needed in an often repeated quote from getty Lee he said the band was getting fried and getting stupid not taking care of ourselves. So when they eventually got back together, July seventy-nine, they were pretty clear on the direction the ban wanted. To take and more specifically what direction the band didn't want to take. They were done with the elements that had dominated their sound up to then the sidelong epics like twenty, one, twelve hemispheres and feral kings. They felt that they had taken that as far as they were willing to and it was time for something else and this album became a reaction to everything they had been doing up until that point. The. Last two albums had been recorded at a studio called. Studio in Wales was far removed from their homes in Toronto and while it contributed greatly to the pastoral country like sound of those albums that also took its toll on the band that studio is famous for being where queen actually recorded Bohemian rhapsody. Yeah. So it's a real serene country setting but constantly being on the road and going and recording an album a continent away from their families, and then immediately returning to the road greatly impacted demand determined not to do that anymore. So they convened in the summer of Nineteen seventy-nine Lakewood farms just a two hour car ride away from their homes in Toronto. This meant more visits to home during the writing and recording process allowing them to stay in touch with their families and recharge their batteries if they needed to. They started what would become their usual practice on this record as well. Neil who besides being the drummer was also the lyricist for the ban he would go to a small cottage room during the day and write lyrics getting Alex would work on musical ideas in a separate area. In the evenings they would get back together and see what they had to work on collectively. So in two weeks of work, they had sketches for four, the songs that would eventually become this record. From there they moved to a small studio called sound kitchen in Toronto and they recorded a few demos fall seventy nine they went on a small mini tour where they began to test market the new material and see if the reaction warranted a full record. And it did. So in mid September nineteen seventy-nine, they entered the studio in Quebec with their producer, Terry Brown morning later to record. The record this choice to record the studio may have been the single most important decision of their career. That studio became the unofficial fourth member of the band and helped define their sound over the course of the next several records The studio would give the guys everything they had not got from the last couple of studios in Wales sides being a few are dry from home it played into their. Canadianness. Well, it has literally the most Canadian name. You could get listless Judy Studio but Bonjour I am list when it was owned by a couple named Andre and and Yale rates. So it couldn't even get any more Canadian. If they had Putin may be the head Patine for dinner every night I wonder if there were like clowns and stuff out in front mimes. Uh I betcha there was this is early nineteen eighty. So it's possible that was some. Early Group of. Street performers high high on cocaine have to look into that dancing around in front of list. Duty List, studio more research warranted please continue. So let studio set on a private lake in the middle of very hilly kind of wooded force the area at one end of the lake sat the studio at the other end about a mile away set the very luxurious and comfortable guesthouse house. So they arrived in fall to record they left in winter they could travel to the studio by foot by car by robot bicycle by snowshoe and did. The recording facility had one whole wall of glass overlooking the lake in the mountains and Neil had this to say about it. We worked in the light of the Sun and one could watch the changing seasons in idol moments rather than a dimly lit smokey view of musical on electronic hardware. The mood was different. The view was different and the music was about to be. Different you WanNa talk about the album cover I'm sure you did some. I. One thing that did a Dicenta find stunning about this Al Yeah very short. Five, thirty, five, thirty, five, minutes, thirty, five seconds surprisingly short. I was very surprised by that second of all reached number four on the billboard two hundred top albums chart, which is pretty good up produced two singles spirit of Radio Entre nous which I was surprised entre nous was the single office I figured it would have been free will, but will there you go? The other thing I'm curious about your. Your take on this. Oh I probably have one I'm sure you do a lot of people and you kind of already brought this up a little bit a lot of reviews and things that I was reading the research for this said that this was the album or they transitioned from a more of a prog rock sound to more of a accessible radio rock sound very much. So and I I'm curious to know. Do you think that that's not you? Obviously, you think that that's true now Obviously it was intentional. But do you think that it made a difference in the career trajectory of rush for sure okay. Yes it absolutely did they were no longer and I addressed at a later on they were no longer. They didn't want to be seen as prog behemoths. Cool. That are playing eighteen minutes for a lot of different reasons. Why one of the main reasons is because it was so physically demanding? I could do a whole episode right here about the last album off the top of my head hemispheres them before this. Were they. Pretty much did everything they could to break themselves musically. Challenged themselves to do so many things that what giddy would say was beyond them just to see if they could do it and they were determined to never go down that road again to to not overplay and overcomplicate things they wanted to become songwriters there's no argument will kinda musicians they were. Now what was in question was? Can you write a good simple song? Do you does it have to be so huge? Yeah, and they were determined to refine that. That part of their sound like the compositional part of it and the arrangement part of it and that they were they were determined to do that to never make another album like hemispheres. seriously. There's four songs on hemispheres one. The first song is eighteen minutes side. And then there's a short three minute song on the the beginning of the second side than a six minute song and then a nine minute instrumental. Nine or eleven minutes, and there's actually. A section in that instrumental, that's call or the subtitle of that that song, it's Leila. Strategy Auto is called an exercise in self indulgence were they're basically saying? We've done everything we can to make a massive this. And they you know they kept trying to record it and get it in one take like one solid take to record and it's eleven minutes long. They ended up using like four takes, but they tried it for four days to justice kept doing it like let's get it. Let's get it and they couldn't do it, which is more power to them that they actually used to play that night after night on tour but. That's not yeah. Couple of the things I noticed about this album. Obviously I'm sure we'll get to this Husam. Was the art director for the cover which will tune just a second bit, but he also played piano on different strings at is correct on the album cover inspiration vocal coaching by daisy the dog. That's a terry. Brown who they refute refer to him as Brune. That's one of his They all have like like one hundred nicknames for each other Maroon is Terry Brown and that was his dog daisy and there's actually in In the tour book for that, which is over there Of course, it's here somewhere. There's a picture of Getty Lee sitting with daisy on his lap at the sound at the Mixing Board. So So clearly the dog was some sort of inspiration. Yeah. and. Then there was also I'm sure you've heard this quote before what are you implying just applying that you know a lot about route this is from. in Guitar Player magazine in Nineteen Eighty about the title of this album he said this era seems to be pushing new wave in this wave and that wave the material we're doing is just permanent. It's just music. It's the love of music and how with everything new it's just a continuation like a wave coming back in from the ocean. Was Beautiful it. Is Beautiful. That's cool. I do love that's one of the things that I love about rush is that they really do seem to. Enjoy the music they're playing. Throughout their whole career I, don't feel like they were one of those bands like so many bands start playing for the love of music and then just become. You know we're replaying this again no. All right. Here's the here's the hit that you guys legs drums disarm system. I don't feel like rush ever got that way. I don't feel like they ever let the music take over the kept playing for the love of music fans banned. Yeah and they they played because the fans paid to see them play and they knew that and they appreciated that and there wasn't going to be a time. They were once Tom Sawyer was recorded. and Tom Sawyer got popular and everybody loved it. There was never gonna be in night again that rush took the stays at Tom Sawyer wasn't on the set list yeah. They weren't going to be like. Playing that's good anymore no, no, a it's hard to play. So there's a certain level of like achievement when you play it right but that's what the fans paid us. That's what they're paying to see this. So we're going to give it to him, and that's always how they approached it. It was it was very much their job, but it was a job that they were passionate about and and loved and loved doing and two thirds of them still love doing. But yeah. So the album cover. Yes So like you said was a created by Hugh Sime he's third longtime graphic designer he's done did everything from the third album KRESA steel to date. So everything that's come out since then he has had a he has had a hand in like whether it's Books singles live compilations, separate artwork or whatever he's. He's basically in the band. Cool. This is just what he does. He's also musician like you mentioned in played rush likes to have an album cover that represents you know what's going to be sung about on the record. So he no, he was looking to capture the chaos that is going on all around us. So you know it's a picture of a hurricane and that pictures from. I can't remember the that I read it somewhere flip Shuki. Yes. That's it. This is it's a picture of a Seawall Boulevard and twenty street in Galveston telvised in. Yeah and I don't do you know much about It was right after Hurricane Carla. That's what I was trying to think September eleventh nineteen, sixty one. And then the obviously the photo of politics. The. Sorry about that Randy. Obviously, the photo of politics and Billy Act. The I'm sorry the model was composite on top my apology. Maker phone. That's good that happens. But I never heard of the flip Shuki before but it kind of looked him up. According to the Flip Shuki Archives he took firsthand photos of at least five hurricanes including Hurricane Carla the third most destructive disaster in US history, and apparently what he used to do to get pictures is he would know that a hurricane was coming he would go out and strap himself to a phone pole. And take pictures throughout the hurricane so that he was he could stay there and get pictures during and immediately after wow that's dedication to craft. Yeah and I'm not sure if This exact photo is not available anywhere online except as part of the album cover. And according to one of the fan sites that I was reading they were saying that they think that the flip. Flip Shawki Archive may have taken off specifically because it was used as part of this cover but there are other photos where you can see these same elements from different angles. Okay. which is really cool Yeah I I think we should also probably quickly talk about the the newspaper and the coca-cola signs sure so that it's it's interesting to me I don't. Know if it's interesting anybody else you wanna go to cover the Coca Cola signs if you want. Yes. Sure. So in the background of the photo, there are some old Coca Cola billboards and obviously you know that's kind of know without Coco is permission and they didn't want to give it. So it was hand drawn over with the names of the band members. And on the earliest covers, and then later on I, think it's just blurred out it as just just just you can tell it's a coca-cola signed because the shape, but it's just the shape of Coca Cola sign. So, in the controversy there is a newspaper on the ground amidst all the chaos on it. There is a headline and it used to read dewey defeats Truman. A call back to the Chicago. Daily. Tribune mistake of the nineteen, forty, eight presidential election, which they're still sore about it when the newspaper mistakenly called the race for Dui only to find out that he had lost. So the newspaper objected to rush using that. So signed changed it to Dewey Dwi. Defeats. Truman said of T. w. e. y. and apparently that was significant enough to appease them but Almeida, it was also blurred out. Board, which is yeah and they just eventually it's just like a white blur for that. So someone's getting lazy. Yeah. That's so fascinating to me that the newspaper. Gave a shit that it appeared in less than a square inch size on the cover of an album. Late In nineteen forty eight is an also it is historically well-known right at picture of Truman holding up the newspaper that says, do he defeats Truman like Hey. CHICAGO. Let it go. It's okay. Nobody cares anymore. So that's Should we go to the try I. Got One got one I got I got a quoting it Read. This is A. Did an interview with Cream magazine in Nineteen eighty-three that C. R. E. E.. M., and that is not a porn mag that is a rock and roll magazine was I. Don't think it's around it is not was sorry, i. Thought. This was kind of interesting. Husam said permanent waves is the result of a conversation to head with Neil out at his home. In the country. We spoke all evening about rush growing up and how we were going to do these ekg readings of each member as they were recording, we were going to tape their temples and chest and have real heartbeats of them while they were playing. So permanent waves was going to be technical statement and we're going to treat that with red and gold foil and do a nice study and design as opposed to photographic thing. I walked out and in the doorway said wait let's try something with Donna. Reed, with her permanent Tawny Hairdo and have her walking out of tidal wave situation Neil gave me a blank look and get out of here. Following Day, he asked me to consider doing just that because he discussed it with the band and they'd all it was more likely for a cover than the serious approach. that. Sounds like them right. Get outta here. Thinking about us and. We talked about it in it's much better idea than what we saw. We thought of 'cause we suck I gotTa admit just reading about the idea of having the ekg in in like a really nice red with gold inlay of it that sounds fascinating to me that sounds like it would be a beautiful design and it was supposed to be an ekg of each one of them while they were playing. Yeah. So's you no one was gonNA probably be more active than the other. Yeah. That is he okay. Looks like he's having a stroke. I do mention that later but in a different way. So okay, that's good good. That's it's a what is it call? You double suggest things to people so they remember them I don't know yeah I don't either but that's that's what we're going to do here. Okay. Let's get into it though track by track indeed the first song is the spirit of radio. Ever. There was a song that presented the notion that the ban that you had been listening to for years was about change. This was. Open the record with a thunderous bass fingered riff that countless guitarists have tried to emi emulate for years let every fan no that the lumbering slow building of the past several years gone and rush was embarking on a new sound. More concise, more more direct, straightforward, sound perhaps more accessible. Song literally jumps out of the speakers and what I'm still taken aback by after all these years is the immediately ooh, the immediacy. And the urgency of the song sounds like this. Oh That's still sends shivers down my spine. I remember the first time I heard this song. I was sitting in computer classroom in tenth grade and I was just at this point in life where I was getting into lake really really nerdy pursuits like dungeons and dragons and shit like that. A friend of mine who I actually play Dungeons and dragons with We basically, this was just a fuck around class rest. We didn't actually learn anything in this programming glass the teacher just the first few days he tried to teach, and then he kind of started playing video games on his computer while the rest of a skirt around on the Internet and played video games but. My friend could walk in as like dude what are you? What are you? What kind of music do you listen to like a little bit everything class Iraqis? Do you know rush I'm a big rush fan I was like I mean I know him but he's like, no. Of course, you are not gonNA listen you gotta listen you gotta listen to this song I just downloaded it log into my accountants I'm. All right. so now he logs in and put my headphones on and spirit a radio. And I'm just I'm sitting in this classroom like what the hell is this I don't think I've ever heard this before I've heard Tom Sawyer before and I knew that was rushed but house like this is amazing and I don't know if it was because it was you know just the setting or because I was listening on headphones or what but it it completely like as like yeah. Okay. I guess I like these guys. Now, I should probably go download a bunch of their music and of course, at that time that meant illegally downloaded a bunch of their music so. Suddenly, you have their whole catalogue, you know without paying for it, which is awesome and illegal and horrible. But yeah. You know since then it's kind of been a I wouldn't say I'm at the same level year at obviously well, but do do like them a lot well that's good. So included in the liner notes for this album right below the lyrics of this song is dedication that red inspired by the spirit of Radio in Toronto alive and well so far source of that dedication was Toronto's CF NY FM located at one or two point one on the radio dial. So there's a Gar- a guy named David Marsden. He used to work for a rival station in Toronto Chum FM, and while working there, he would play rush all the time when while working late at night Alex license called in and requested that he play rush which, of course he did. Eventually, left there and began working for CNN. Why am one day on a break? He was thinking that the station needed some sort of catch phrase and he kept thinking of the spirit of St., Louis Charles Lindbergh's plane for whatever reason and he went to the Ba-, the break room and wrote spirit of Radio on the Bulletin Board told all the other deejays to say that after the call letters the station and there was no meetings now focus groups Bam new slogan. So, Neil would often refer to this station as the last of the really free format radio stations where the playlists were decided by the DJ's because they like the music. It wasn't decided in corporate offices by people were deciding what people would listen to. It was based on what they thought was good and if people called in and requested more of it, then they played more of it. nope. Redesign playlists just music that people wanted to hear. So Neil referred to this referred to the station. As quote they had these kind of personal experiences where you turn on the radio in the morning you hear a song the haven't heard a lot but all of a sudden captures you and start your day off on the right footing. Those kinds of magic things that everyone has a relationship to are irreplaceable and the kind of thing that really get lost from radio has become more homogenized so This song is about integrity. It's about playing what you believe and given a rat's ass whether or not people by it, but doing it because you love it. This was the essence of. Rush. Back in Nineteen, seventy, five for the band was on the verge of collapsing. Their third album was not well received by most people. The tour for that record was dubbed the down the tubes tour. And saw them play to one people in some places. They were paired to pack it in and go back to their regular jobs. They had one record left on their contract with Mercury polygram and their label at the time wanted hits as they do. They basically thumb their noses at them, rather than making album to appease the label and compromise their integrity. They went ahead and did another concept record with even less hit sounding songs called twenty. One, twelve. That record made them stars. So several million copies and allow them to never hear from a label. Again, the agreement they have always had since then was we write it we record it and then we handed over to. Know interference. And now, here, they are spouting the importance in value of integrity being yourself of not compromising. It's not your typical rock song. Yeah. They've taken a lot of flack for that over the years that they're preachy to serious. Now don't talk enough about tits apparently to to to warrant a serious conversation like I'm sorry did you say to warrant in quotation marks I? Just wanted to make sure I saw that it's just that they're talking about things that. That were important to them because they wanted to continue to be musicians and you they've valued integrity and how people handled themselves. And it's IT'S A. Big Deal. I think that's awesome. Though because I think that's one of the things that is so. Lacking in music in general is you know the minute, there's a lot of people that are very You know they start out with this the integrity and they're like, no man, it's for the music for the music and the second get the taste of fame the second they get the you know. The money and the the women and the men and everybody else that roles in the immediately are like you know yeah let's roll out another. That's not quite to the same level just so we can get it out and keep going and you know let's what does the suit? What is the production company think we should? Just make that and get it out on the radio is quick Basel Yeah it's a little. Yeah. I. I'm glad that they've always they've stuck to their guns and they've talked about you know serious topics and stuff that that I wanna read about and listen about. So this song spirit of Radio would be the opener for countless shows that I attended throughout the years I was also the are the encore for many years It's a concert staple rush very clearly wears their influences on their sleeves. They were listening to a lot of the police back then evident by the reggae section. Police had been incorporating a lot of that for a number of years and rush now felt you know it was time? We could put that in there and within that section. the reggae section. There's interpret interpolations of a line from the sound of silence by Simon and Garfunkel The original line is for the words of the Prophets are written on the subway walls. Neil change this to for the words of the Prophets. Prophets money. Are Written on the studio walls then there was a pause and then concert halls It was at this moment that all the lights in their rig pointed at the stage were turned towards the audience in bright open white and every hand in the arena went up and people went freaking nuts didn't matter how many times we had seen them do this. This was the interactive moment. It was a chance to connect with them and it was a great moment every single time it happened in still still great I watched on concert videos. It's like at that moment you're like you're just like getting ready for like you're. So, song got to number fifty one on the billboard top one hundred. Not. Necessarily a hit. But for a progressive hard rock band that rarely sings about love and his very heavy lyrics and. Virtual. So musicianship yeah I'd say it was a pretty big deal. eventually be named one of the top five, hundred songs that helped shape rock and roll by the rockall fame, and it's one of the five songs by rush inducted into the Canadian songwriters hall of fame as well. You have anything else on I was just GonNa say, I think that well I guess I should mention. The steel drums in this replayed by GERWIG. How Do I believe it's Bernice right chapter two. Yeah. I have been trying to pronounce that all week and every time I'm likes. To screw up Google that name it did. Yeah. What did you find out about or wig not a whole lot Yeah. So who is because? Literally that's the only in find is 'cause it's no one. It's no one is so okay it's just a joke I wondered if it was because I was like who the hell her when Chow shop should. House like who the hell. Joe Yeah I. Interesting. I really did wonder because I wrote that down and I was like. SCRABBLE look at prison up and I tried to look it up and I was like no other other credit no other credits doesn't even seem to happen. Maybe it's a local Toronto Steel Drum player. Of course, there are many times. That's funny. So I wondered, I really did like I know I'm gonNA sound like a jackass, but I really did wonder Like. I should ask me before we start recording that it's like no no no. No. Wait until the episode this'll be better. I'll look like more of a jackets better. So. The only other thing that I was gonNA say. Which one of these do you think is a bigger hit spirit radio TOM SAWYER Tom Sawyer is a bigger hit. Thanks. Yeah. Yeah. Whether or not if you're asking which is a better song that's up more for debate. But I'm Tom Sawyer is a big hit. Okay. Next songs free will. it's one of my top five rush songs for sure not only for what it saying. But how it says it this song about all else in the rush catalog is the perfect marriage of lyrics and music. Is One of many. One of many neal's songs that would take religion to task for how it presents things. Wait is this song about religion I don't know something like that. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, Neil said this in an interview with renown Dj. Jim ladd. A lot of mysticism whether it's astrology or religion would have you believe that men are evil and must be controlled and that's the whole premise behind all of those things that there is something better than man because man isn't so good and those things have to look after us because we can't look after ourselves I believe that might be a nice delusion to hide behind when it comes down to it you make choices even if you avoid making the choices by choosing one of those screens to hide behind the, you have still made a choice that affects the outcome of your life. I don't believe that there's anyone running my life except me. The lyrics are intense. Yeah I mean when you sit down and break this down, it is It is a fascinating discussion about religion and whether or not it's it's something that can survive in the twenty first century and whether it should survive the twentieth century, right? So it's a great song though I really do like this one the. Lyrics are intense, their special My mom loved the song. Oh that's fascinating to choose very engaged with the lyrics as a devout Catholic, a Sunday schoolteacher degreed theologian. It always surprised me that she liked the song as much as she did but the feeling is universal whether it's on the positive side of the negative side of the idea being presented. He says, if you choose to believe or not you're still choosing and she had a great deal of respect for that. She was saying I choose to believe she had steadfast faith which I never completely understood, but I respected it. So she was much the same way towards him. He was being ambivalent towards faith if you had it. Okay. But if you didn't okay, don't waffle make a choice and live with it. And I remember using the song in catechism our Sunday school to illustrate a point and I was amazed that she would use something that was so important to me personally to make a point about faith and it made me contemplate a lot of the things in the song which I'm sure was point. Yeah to begin with. Sure. That was not intentional at all. It was a complete accident. Yeah. That's that's although I'm I would imagine would imagine your mom probably did a lot better than like youth pastors do today. Oh. She was ask the kids. About. Let's talk about the Justin Timberlake's. WHO's this Scroll Ix Fella first let's do a trust fall. Everybody. Who's this Scroll Ix Villa here with his boom boom Boom Bang Bang Bang going to drop the base. The base off. Yeah. How about this skateboard trick learn here. No she was she was very she's very good. She's very well prepared. Musically is one of the most complex and dense five minute songs you will ever hear. It sound at least the tone of the guitar and sounded drums and Bass are very similar sounding spirit of radio, which of course, is the studio sound. Dominates, the whole record it's one of the best sonic experiences in all of Russia's catalog even though they would record an album thirty, two years after this. It's all over the place as far as time signatures and structure, but the most important part of the song happens from the three minute mark to the four minute mark. Sounds like this. Record. Who chills chills down the spine with that one? This section of the song is the part that defines the musicianship and is so representative of every member of the banned from this really extremely athletic driving baseline and Solo to the complex quick patterns at Neil's doing to the Frenetic Blistering Guitar Solo that Alex Place it's all of them in a microcosm. So when the section occurred on stage, it was one of those moments that you waited for in anticipation you have an arena with thousand. Rush fans who have digested dissected. And tried to recreate because we are all air drummers at heart. Every note on all of these songs and we know this one. So when it gets to this part of the song, we all collectively hold our breath and just sit in awe as these masters go to work, and for one minute we are completely transfixed and at the end of it. Every single time no matter where I've seen them in the country the crowd erupts goes nuts because we all knew how hard that part was and making it through every time. Unscathed was such a huge great achievement like it was just a collective. That massive people. Just watching these guys just do their thing hoping they all come out because they're actually playing two different time signatures there. Yeah. They're all GONNA come out wind up and. It's so it was such a great experience every single time. that. was when they did find super fascinating is I'm not a musician. So you know things like time signatures I understand. Technically what they mean when I don't understand how you would really implement them but I know that in researching this it was. Thirteen, four, time, signature, fifteen, four, twelve, eight, four, four, three, four. All over the place. And at times different time signatures depending upon. WHO's playing? That is correct. That's bonkers to me and I don't even understand I. don't even understand like on a level above like okay. Yeah. Basically understand what they're trying to do I don't understand it from the technical aspect of like playing it that way and that it wasn't easy. Yeah. It doesn't sound like it would be no. And Yeah. It was just amazing. Still Amazing to watch and every time I listened to it it's it's like Whoa, this part. Matter. I've heard the song couple thousand times or more, and it's like doesn't matter every single time. One thing needs to be mentioned is conscious departure from the high screaming vocal work yes. On this record getty Lee had been compared to Robert Plant. And also a hamster in a blender. Is One of those things that turn people off about the band Then they purposely wrote this record like you had mentioned if it was a very distinct departure from when they had done in the past. Yes. They recorded this. They wrote specifically with his vocals a little tamer. A little. Down in the register. So it wasn't so squelching except for the last part of the song where he brings that whaleback one more although I think it's kind of a callback, right? It's kind of like them saying, this is what it used to be, and now we're moving on. Yeah. I. Don't know how conscious was if it was there even smarter than I thought. It could've just been like Oh, my God I made it through that part. I'm GonNa Really Yeah. Because it's a lot of work. Yeah. I got a magic that kind of singing. Has just got a blow out your vocal chords every night. At did and he didn't he he was very particular especially as the age to you would not talk between shows like they they'd record or they do their show on A. whatever like a Monday night and if they had a show on Tuesday night, he wouldn't talk between the end of the Monday night to the Tuesday concert and if they had a Wednesday off, then he would talk but he just he would stop doing that. Protect it, and he always wore like war scarf in between and just keeping it warm and be there they're professionals and they. They didn't ever want to have to cancel a show because of something like that. That could be prevented. So that's cool. Having more about that's all know. All right. It's I. Think you covered on my notes probably Jacob's ladder. The next song on here. So of my top five rush songs of all time to are on this record free will and this one but this one is my favorite song of all time I. Kinda thought I remember we've talked about this before and I, kind of just listening to it again I was like Oh. Yeah. I can see why Matthew likes. Fairly long over seven minutes very few lyrics. Lots of drums and it's certainly the most cinematic song in their repertoire Neil said this about it. We looked at the song as being a cinematic kind of exercise and before any words were written, we talked about the image of Jacob's ladder of a cloudy sky coming along, and then all of a sudden those beams of light that everyone sees we created music out of that image and wrote the whole song around it. So for those unfamiliar Jacob's ladders, the phenomenon of the sun breaking through the clouds invisible rays, which in turn was named after the Biblical ladder that Jacob saw of angels ascending to Heaven. So, there's there's darkness to the song. It's a beautiful darkness that always. Resonated with me. Personally those are called Kripa skier raise at such a great comes from the Latin Kripa skill. Meaning twilight. Meaning to pus Gillam meaning. To. But I I've always thought those were fascinating because the the appear this vibrant orange color because the light rays have to pass through so much more atmosphere because they're at such a steep angle and it blows off all the the deep reds and all the heavy blues. So they appear Super Super Orange and it's amazing to watch the right type of sunset McLeod's just right and everything especially if you're. Someplace like a beach where you can see the sunset west coast. Beach I guess I should say and you can see the sunset it looks bits special. It's a special thing to see I've I've heard tons of different people be like Oh those are you know that would show up every once in a while it's God collecting the souls that have passed away and that's you know I've heard many. Beautiful stories about it, but just to see it is is pretty miraculous. Very cool. So. There's two stories from that same year who two stories from the same these same year that help kind of tell the story for me. So in Nineteen eighty-four. Love and I had a paper out delivering the Detroit. News made a Schwinn bike with the saddle bag full of papers every day at three thirty or four. I would ride my bike to the pay station about two miles from a house pick up my papers. On my route covered streets near my house. So I was usually done by about five or so. With the money that had made from that route I bought my first Walkman. And many tapes permanent waves was one of those tapes and there was there was something about the song that always felt very different felt special It's music. It's lyrics conjure up like this midwestern autumn feel heavy grey skies chilly air leaves on the ground. And this song was the best records representation of that and to this day I can't hear that song without being transported back to that bike back to those days and I was so much in tune with that song because I listened to it every day there was a point in the song. In the middle where it almost felt like like it was slowing down a little bit like he was dragging the tempo a little bit. And turns out it was when I finally could figure out how to figure that out. But at the time being twelve, I'm like what I used to get. So pissed because I felt like every single time I was listening song the batteries in my Goddamn Walkman will die. Because it will just get a little bit slower and I'm like, what? What said, stop my bike and flip the tape over I'm like, Oh, it sounds right on this side why sound like it's slowing down, flip it back over the tape and I'm like don't there it goes again. I went through so many batteries that I didn't need to change so mad but silla global warming matthew useful Vanarasi throughout nineteen, eighty four. It's my fault. It's fine I. I accept that I deal with it. It's okay. Musically just one of the, it's just some the guitar work that Alex has ever done all these harmony soil solos great tone throughout the song. There's these syncopated moments that further pushed the cinematic field long it's very much like a movie to me builds and builds his Co. Crescendo, and then it drops off to this very theory part This is what his guitar sounds like. It's interesting to me that you said that it builds and builds and bills, and then kind of just trails off at the end because I felt that same way about the song. Do you know what? A Jacob's ladder is the electrical device I I I've I've seen it obviously. So vs instead. So if you have never seen one of these before I'm sure you have. But you might not know it think about the background of like a bad black and white Frankenstein movie on top of some piece of equipment. There are two things that look like old television aerials going up and inbetween them. You'll see an arc of trinity that goes. And then phases out what is it doing? And then fades up. That's called the Jacob's ladder. And the way that the work is they create this incredibly strong current between the two. Pieces of metal that are sticking up it. Actually I on is the air around the electricity and as it goes up, the ionization gets weaker and weaker and weaker until it can't hold that arc anymore and then it dissipates just like this song it starts out really strong it it builds and builds and builds and the dissipates. That's a great visual. I don't know that totally when I read the name Jacob's ladder and I was listening to this the other day I was like Oh. Yeah. That's definitely what they were thinking about and I say research Ian has like not at all not at all but still good popped into my brain so I spouted out on podcast I do like that visual though it's nice. Now, I have to listen to it again. Time. So sorry I made you listen more Sure, three leave. So this song was performed way back on the tour when album came out in nineteen eighty and then shelved for years and years really They finally dusted off for their final tour in Twenty fifteen and it's an. Amazing magical experience. So I can vividly remember standing on the lawn of the vine amphitheater with the song blasting lasers, bouncing overhead, and my oldest son, my oldest son standing next to me that was the penultimate show of their career. and there was so much emotion because you just knew that this was really it I have some great footage on my phone of that moment that I will treasure forever because it's just one of those moments where you're like that that this is this is it and as big deal. the another story attached to the song. So part of the reason why it's so stuck in my memory I mentioned two stories from Nineteen eighty-four. This is the other. So in the fall of Nineteen eighty-four, my brother was starting his junior year at Oakland, university university in Michigan. Every fall, they had a little brother little sister weekend there that younger siblings could spend a weekend with their older sibling at college just what every college student wants. Right? So I went and it just so happened to coincide with the campus musical. in which my brother was playing the drums set in the pit band. I really didn't WanNa spend all evening there. So stayed back in his dorm room by myself and told them I'll just sit here and listen to music. As had this killer sound system so I was more than happy to So I found this record in the stack and proceeded play it over and over again partly because I couldn't figure out how to turn off the auto repeat function on the record player. And I didn't WANNA break it. And partly because I loved it so much but I played it. Too much after the twelfth playing of Jacob's ladder remember I couldn't flipped the record over it was just the first side. My brothers suite mates started pounding on the wall and yelling God. Toward place up that a house. So I, turn the volume down because I still turn it off and hid in the chair next to the window until my brother got. So for some reason that's ingrained in my bringing. This song because I was like scared that some nineteen year old midwestern boobs. We're going to break the door down kick. My Ass. Like I'm sorry, I played I'm sorry your brother got a degree in engineering, right? Yeah. So chances are his remains were just a bunch of fucking pimple faced nerds. Oh they were but but then again, you were only twelve. was. Still Scary. I don't know what to do with to kick your ass can. Her. Put as soon as I take my head gear off. So does get cod beat new. Where's my head gear? All right. Beside the. Flip flipping the rigor over entre nous entre nous ranch for. Between us that is correct for me. This is the first really great rush relationships on Russia's always been associated with dudes. You ever went to a rush concert back in the day not so much in the recent days it was a sausage fest it was mostly white suburban guys. A lot has to do with what early songs were about lots of myth mythology stuff like that Some of it was the musicianship music wasn't danceable or necessarily fun. And it was a little bit harder kind of nearing the metal edge that lent itself more guys than ladies like I said, that's changed over time. So on the first several records, there's always been a softer song that I don't think was necessarily an appeal to the ladies, I think it was more to try their hand at softer slower compositions They had a couple songs through the years namely tears off twenty twelve. Panacea. Chris's deal Madugalle Farewell Kings that were songs about love. This song entre nous is more of a song about relationships and not necessarily romantic ones not exclusively. See if you can get what I mean from this part right here. I, think it's dying. Recognize. says. He's some guy with. I. Think. It's time burst. That closing line of the chorus spaces, inbetween leave room for you and I to grow I feel that may be the most poignant and effectively Eric. I have ever read what a thing to say you know I. Love You. I want to be with you and I wanNA share my life with you. But the time we are apart the time I need for myself allows me and you and your alone time to become better and more fully formed person, and then we bring that back to the relationship. We don't have to spend every second together we are together but we are individuals. You know that is fantastic relationship advice I'm just saying. An Neil said this? He said it's almost impossible for us to understand each other I think no matter how long you've known a person you can still be surprised by them and they're still times when you look at them and say, I don't know what you're thinking. You can't get inside another person it's absolutely impossible. and. I think it's such a wonderful song of individuality and understanding one another. when I was first listed the song like I was eight or nine years old it didn't really resonate obviously with me like it would later but it was very unique had such a unique. To it more of a straight ahead rock song than than most of the stuff they had ever put out. But that these slowdown softer choruses this really bright twelve string guitar kind of peppered throughout. Come to find out later. This year as a matter of fact, when they released the fortieth anniversary edition of it that it wasn't ever twelve string guitar. Two different acoustic tracks one with alternate tuning. So I was wrong. The whole time Oh my God. Bullshit. Well this album's crap now, thank you throw the whole thing through it. What do you have on this? It's such a great song the only the only real factor have about this. I do like this on I. Think it's a really great opener to the second side of this album. I think I agree with you. It's definitely. A, it's not like a a ballad. It's not like a necessarily love song, but it is very much a relationship song and I think that it fits. Well, I think it's really well The only fact that I've got between US obviously is the English translation. Sure. Supposedly that is from a Iran's nineteen forty-three novel the fountainhead with. Boo to that But apparently Neil Parrott wrote that because it's how he feels he feels the sense of her poor with members of the audience. Yeah between us. And I thought that was a that was a very good. It doesn't necessarily fit with the you know sort of a relationship theme that I think the song has, but I do think that that's a fascinating if true that's a fascinating I would say it's very much true. So you have to understand what meals relationship was with the audience and you would find out more of that on the next record when they released limelight where he was very much. Distant he wanted to be distant from the crowd de wanted to make music for people but he wanted to be left alone and everyone thought. Well, he's just a crab he's grumpy and he's like no I just want to do what I do but I don't want to be worshipped for it. I. Don't want people these like I was a huge who fan but there's no way in hell you would have ever caught me outside of a WHO hotel trying to get a piece of them like give me he space he was shy bright and that's that's what it came down to. Yeah. So this songs like you know the time I, very much speaking to you know the The space in between the records, the space is when you don't know what I'm doing you know leave it, leave me a chance to grow as a person. Leave you a chance to listen to other things and then come back to us and go I appreciate that even more. Now because of the work they put into it, it's a it's a big statement and he was always about those kind of statements that. It was a big deal. In a very strong song, there's A. There's a clip from the documentary beyond the lighted stage came out in twenty ten One of the people they interview throughout the whole thing is billy Corgan from smashing pumpkins and He made a very big point to say he was a weird kid growing up he. He was totally and involved in music but his parents always thought he was doing things he shouldn't be doing and they didn't really communicate and he remembers like taking. This record and asking his mom mom I have something really want you to listen to and it was his way of reaching out and communicating with her and saying this is important to me. I want it to be important to you and that was entre nous and at that to me that saying. Hey, there's other ways to communicate that I'm not going to be able to just sit down and go. Well, you know I'm angsty teen I like music and I'm Kinda, you know I I can't. I can't form the words. This is how he was communicating. Listen to this. This has me reaching out to you. Hugo I'd never heard that story before. That's beautiful though it's a great clip. So put that in the We'll put that in the show notes, which means remind me to put that in the show notes in about six months after this episode is posted copy. This song unfortunately wouldn't be performed live until two thousand seven. So this also sat on the shelf for twenty seven years. It's twenty seven years. No yes. Twenty seven years several years many. Many years I do a feel that it's important every time I bring up I N. Rand. I do WANNA remind everybody I in Rand passed away while leaching off the government. I think it's very important. that I mentioned that every time I ran is brought i. mean collectivism does work. Yeah. What a surprise continuing on. All right so collectivism no, no right fine. Different strings. Yes. So every AL every rush album up to this point on one track that was considered quote their studio track song that they never had any intention of playing live and they were free to experiment without the limitation of knowing they would have to recreate it night after night for months. And this was the song. On that on this record. So the first thing that is notable as the lyrics are written by Geddy. Lee had that same note last time this is the last time he would take solo credit for Russia really. Yes. Wow. However thematically. The falls neatly in line with the rest of the record. Yeah. Different hearts beat on different strings fifty nine with the spaces in between leave room for you and I to grow from the last song. Seems that it's a nice match and I think. You know that's a strong testament to the relationship that the singer has with this drummer and lyricist They were really never off of the same page they may be at a different section of the page, but certainly they're still. On, it is also like you mentioned earlier this is a song that cover artist you sime would add his piano playing to some lovely work to. It's very beautiful piano playing at it's very touching absopure that he chose to do A. Industrial Art. Rather than be a musician personally. Yeah. Yeah. But he he did make that whitesnake cover. Yeah. That's true. Beautiful work us so good just you can see right inside. So I mentioned. Way, back, at the beginning of this episode, which may have been two three days ago. I mentioned Terry Brown on the Intro? Yes. Never really mentioned him since then now seems like a good time. So who? My son Connor, who is a? He's a big hip hop fan asked me when I was doing my research for this record. What the producer did for this record he said with the music, he listens to the producer usually was the one that wrote the beat did some song construction they were more involved in the crafting of a song. So Terry Brown who remixed the first record and subsequently co produced and engineered all of the other albums up until this point a couple more after this produced this record with the band co produced his job consisted of being the objective fourth set of ears. He was there to keep them on schedule. To maintain focus. More or less on completing the job and give suggestions about songs like this part doesn't work or try something else or that's great. But also be a voice who is willing to tell them if something sucked, you know he was integral for many years in helping, define and shape what their sound was I bring him up and mentioned in the song because he did something that has been debated and rush circles for years as always pissed me off. the end of this beautiful heartfelt Song Alex starts this Super Blues and distortion soaked Solo just a really gnarly Solo. And right as I think, it's going to take an interesting turn. The song quickly fades out during the Solo Alex said this of that part it reminds me of soldiers sitting around piano in a smoke-filled pub and during the war, it's the type of Solo I really enjoy playing a motive bluesy sort of thing. The only problem is that the solo was added last minute it really starts to happen as the song ends, which was unfortunate. Unfortunate. We got robbed. One thing I've said for a long time as like to divide the band into the heart, the mind and soul the heart getty Lee strong and organized. He gives life's gives life to the words whereas those emotions for all to see the mind is neo appeared. So intelligent thoughtful plays drums like no one else before him or sense any rights so well, but the soul is Alex license he leaves it all out there passionate and frenetic. He is the emotion of the band to have a solar like this just laid out there and snatched away. Seems so Wrong and I blamed Terry Brown. Terry Brown said about it at the time for whatever reason it seemed. No let's just faded out right here because it's so cool. Let's just fade it and it's going to leave them wanting more laughs. And laughs. But we were going to get any more now where we terry, we all knew that this was the studio peace and there wasn't going to be a time to play this live that was it and I'll never forgive him for that. Anyway would produce the next two albums after this, and then the band wanted to see what other producers would do. So they more or less fired him. So has that ever come out I mean I assume that recording exists somewhere? No. No No. So it's never been released. So do you think that it ever will be no? No really I do not. I do not. I mentioned that I mentioned that here on the next song eventually when we get to got got more about different strings because no. Pretty much covered on the notes. I've got got nothing. About that natural science is the next song. So. Speaking of what I was just talking about. So Russia's known for never having anything left after they go in the studio they are managers worst dream. Because when all is said and done, and they have hung up their instrument and Russia's no more, which is currently right now since Neal's passing there will be no found music no stuff from the vault capitalize on. They've always said that if it's good enough to record and put all that work into, then we will make it good enough to release. Then they don't go in with fifty songs and whittle it down to six. That being said, there are two names of songs that die hard fans will bring up when talking about permanent waves. One is uncle to news that read about that that was a song they were jamming on during the preliminary stages of the record. It was never recorded however bits and pieces of it were reused over the years on songs from this record and stuff removing pictures as well. I do need to mention your listeners do not type uncle news into a search engine. It brings up a lot of weird porn. Really yes. So I was like, I wonder if that recordings out there anywhere click click click click can immediately like Has Relations with young woman. NOPE, nope. Get that out of there. nope. No. Thank you. Well, that's strange. Yes. So, don't do that. Every boys and girls don't Google uncle to news lease. The other song was Sir Wayne and the Green Knight that was a completely finished lyric by Neil and presented the guys in the band at turned out though thematically, Mitha mythological story wasn't fitting in with the integrity aspect of the record. So they need something new. So parts of music that were written for Sir go Wayne they used some of those parts and parsimonious to news and some new bits to form this song actual science. So there's no fully formed track anywhere. That exists that they could on earth and go woo woo out this song now doesn't exist they would just recycle and reuse and and Kinda take parts away. That's interesting I'll do like that though because it means there's On the one hand a little bit less mystery. You know what I mean. You're hearing everything that they recorded in the studio this or that was recorded I should say not that was played but that was recorded. What would you fade that song out? You're really upset about that I asked him I saw. At nine minutes twenty seven seconds This is the longest song on the record but unlike the rush epochs of old, it doesn't feel that long. Yeah. has a very unusual structure. There's no verse Chorus Verse Chorus Structure It's very direct is broken into three parts, tide pools hyperspace, and permanent waves. Titles starts off with. Alex. Neil at the shore of the Lake it loose studio splashing ores in the water freezing autumn cold. they also set up an fly amplifier on the shore and recorded the Cousteau Guitar out there to make use of natural echo. Yeah. From the lake in the mountain I put that no Dan too. That's cool to me. People don't do that stuff, and now you could probably find filter that recreates that sound perfectly. But there's something about knowing it was done that way that makes that song that much more intriguing. Pro Tools plug in from Los Dude. Listen Judy. That sounds like I recorded it outdoors I know right I know. hyperspace thrust the band into the future or maybe the present time for us now. References to synthetic pant synthetic bands, mechanized worlds as certainly speaking of how quickly technology moves sometimes to the depth detriment of us and leaves us no time to catch up believe this is the part with a computer has clinics for superior cynics who dance to synthetic band in their own image their world has fashioned no wonder. They don't understand. Right that is correct. I am horribly mistaken on my timing. No, it sounds like it sounds like this. I. Don't understand. Are, you are you kidding me I picked the I pulled the quote that you had the audio clip for that is serendipity rape for nine and a half minutes song. That's pretty good. That's pretty good. That's that's Dart on top of DART. Situation. Right there producer Randy. Let me know that that phenomenon of recording outdoors and using natural sounds is called world designing. ooh. World Izing world is zero the sizing world. Izing World Izing. And I said it's making a comeback. So that's good. Maybe people actually record like that again world izing. That's cool. So By, that drum part So. Good. So permanent waves. So final section brings us to a middle ground somewhere between the tide pool and the future more in relation to the rest of the record. It has this balance. we don't need to go backwards, but maybe we are more conscious of how we move forward. Otherwise, it gets away from us. So this whole song to me is a metaphor of our total and complete insignificance in the whole scope of the universe You think about what he's saying he uses the tide pool tide pool becomes a total and complete society in the span of twelve. Hours little bacteria maybe Fisher to or a clam get washed in their from wave, and then they get isolated their whole universe, their whole existence in a mere twelve hours. But in the grand scheme of the universe, how long has our existence? Hundred Years for one person may be one, hundred thousand years for the whole species on a floating rock that has already five billion years olds pretty insignificant. And like the tide pool when the tide comes in and destroys that little university, Earth will shake us off after a period of time and it's it'd be like we were never here. And time marches on. Very uplifting message. But it certainly an honest one. Yeah. I've always loved the song for its view of the world and for the music you know it was not performed again a long time not until nineteen ninety-six but they ended up loving it and it stayed in live show for most of the subsequent years. One of the best things we've ever done as what neal called called this song it's a piece of art and it says and wraps up everything on the record that came before it is the total. Summation. Guinea said this about it. The whole point of permanent waves was to try and use and assimilate everything that we'd learned on previous albums and to write a more concise album, we wanted to write a better album. We wanted to try her hand writing songs and trying to use the knowledge that we learned by using other instruments and sort of assembling melody better than we have in the past, and that was the main intent of the album well Mr Lee mission accomplished. I definitely think that this I wrote down the note all this machinery making modern music can still be open hearted on this song I definitely think that the message of this song. Just like a wave leads right back into the first track of this album up. Just. Over and over again permanent. Wave they go right. And that's permanent waves. Yeah. It's my personal favorite record of all time. I. Probably. Listen to it at least once a month. Without fail so it holds a lot of memory and I absolutely love it.
