The Mont Vernon Murder

"As, hard as they were to here at times, we have sat through the interviews of four of the five individuals being interviewed four the murder of Kimberly cates. And now we have Steven spader who is left. Chris griddle gave us a good amount of information and he showed us what kind of heartless individual he actually is it's time for Steven spader did he tell the same story as griddle and nutshell? No instead spader through his childhood friend right under the bus the affidavit sums it up best quote spader told the police in substance that he did not commit the charge crimes that he did not know who did it that whoever did it should get the death penalty? He also stated that on October four he was at the Pheasant Lane Mall Nashua with Christopher Grill while he pawned jewelry. Presumably the jewelry taken from the Kate's home spader then lawyered up and refuses to talk to the authorities. This is confusing. As we saw these boys took pains to make sure that they were not caught. They wore gloves they got rid of their clothes. They clean the blood evidence up with bleach and other cleaning agents. But then they told everyone they knew about the murders. Here's what the affidavit says. The boys blab about two people. During the day on. Sunday. Spader told Jamie Holland's remember he was at Kyle. Fenton's house all about the murder quote because he trusted him. As we know they also told Fen all about it and his mom was the one who actually called the police. griddle said that they threatened elden spikes on Sunday remember that spikes was hanging out with the four them that Sunday and they all gone together to the pawnshop to sell some items stolen from the house.

"It was a scene of brutal carnage, quiet, affluent suburban town of just two thousand about sixty miles from Boston. There was only one other known murder in Mount Vernon, and this was way back in eighteen forty kimberly worked as a nurse was an avid runner and Gardner and her daughter attended the local elementary school. Neither of them weighed even one hundred pounds. Investigators discovered that a third person. At the home this Kimberley's been in Jamie's father David. Now. Statistically. The killer was most likely David this active knew. They wondered whether David who was m I a could have murdered his wife and left his little girl for dead. Perhaps, this was a case of would be family annihilated like the Chris Watts case that we covered in episodes to sixty nine to seventy. But investigators track down David cates he was on a business trip and Maryland. In fact, he traveled for work as a contract engineer for the government and was gone most weeks. This was normal routine stuff. He rushed to Boston to be by the side of his daughter who was in bad shape in the hospital trying to recover from this horrific attack. He obviously had nothing to do with what happened inside that home while in good for him because we have eyewitness that saying there's at least two people, investigators were able to determine how the intruder entered the Kate's home screen on one of the basement windows was removed and the window was broken. A chest was in the basement under the window. This is how the intruder got out they surmised, but they also noted that on the home's Porch, the window AC unit had been removed as if someone had entered through this window. So two points of entry into this home. Police. Also discovered that the electricity to the house had been shut off at the circuit breaker. There was blood on the breaker switches. Fresh tire tracks were noted on a dirt area off of Tro road it had just rained. So the tire tracks were fresh and neighbors confirm that no one had parked there on that Saturday whoever invaded the Kate's home early, Sunday morning likely parked off of the road near some tractor equipment and walked to the House to carry out their evil deed. On Sunday this is in the afternoon at about five fifteen to five twenty pm as crime scene techs were still working the horrific scene. Jamie was in the hospital and Kimberly. was in the morgue awaiting an autopsy. Amherst police officer Nathan Berry pursued a vehicle this sped off when it observed his cruiser. Ahead. Attracted his attention because it was sitting in an industrial park where some burglaries recently occurred. When he pulled the vehicle over, he took the names of two teens in the car. This was Christopher grabble and Steven spader. He questioned the two and then let them go then that same evening police got a phone call the caller was Carol Fenton. who was a mother of teenager Kyle Fin. Carol said, her son had some interesting things to say a trooper went to the Fenton's home to. Him in person. Kalfin said that earlier that day to friends stop by his house while he was hanging out with his buddy Jamie Hololens. The to told him and Holland's that they had broken into a house the night before in Mount Vernon and killed two people and stolen some stuff. Fenton told police that his friends even showed him in Holland two knives that they said they used on the victims. They also said they used a machete. After the to bragging teens left Fenton and Holland's saw a story on the news about a murder in Mount Vernon. Fenton, was bothered by this information told his mother immediately. Finn's mother then contacted the amherst police chief because I'm assuming that I when your buddy starts Tonia. Hey, we broke into a house you're thinking and yeah right and then your buddy goes all year by but we also killed people in the on. Yeah. That's that sounds crazy You're probably just making this up and then they leave and then you see this news report and now you're going well, maybe maybe they weren't lying maybe they weren't. Making up a story to freak me out or pull a prank on me like maybe this really happened, right you start going. Okay. Either these guys did what they said they did or they have some kind of knowledge of something horrible that happened the next town over. So the two that bragged about the break in and attack where seventeen year old Stephen, spader and nineteen year old Christopher griddle the same to who had been pulled over by officer Berry on the day after the murder. Two others were named by Fenton, this is billy marks and Quinn Glover. Police started looking for the vehicle registered to Christopher griddle that they had pulled over earlier that day they tracked the address to griddles home. Now, griddle wasn't there. So troopers proceeded to Stephen Spader house where he lived with his parents Trooper John. Encarnacion. Arrived at the home of Steven spader in Brookline on. October Fifth Chris Dribble. And Steven spader were just emerging from the house. Another teen boy named Autumn Savoy was with them. Police brought the whole crew in griddle was dressed entirely in Camo gear when they picked him up. They. took four pocket knives off of his person. Meanwhile, this is now Monday October fifth. So Quinn Glover and billy marks who were named by Kyle Fenton as co conspirators in this murder while they're at school. Apparently? Glover was seen crying at school that day. A school resource officer from the High School, an I called police that Monday afternoon. The resource officer told police that he had been speaking with a student who had been cutting himself and seemed scared upset. This student reported to him that Quinn Glover and billy marks and two others had threatened him. Cops met with this student. His name was elden. Spikes. and. He said that he spikes had taken a bunch of drugs the day before and then hung out with griddle spader marks and glover. who were reveling in the murder they adjust committed. They openly addressed the murder in fact, spikes reported dribble said quote it was awesome when he slipped the girl's throat. SPADER said he wanted to do it again. They all went to the Pheasant Lane Mall to pawn some stuff that the teens had taken from the Kate's house. So let me this rate. This guy gets all high ad of his mind. doped up on some drugs starts hanging out with his buddies or acquaintances or whatever. And they start acting like laughing hyenas top about this murder. and so he's probably getting a little freaked out. and. So now they're go to the small, but the next day he's cutting himself. Yeah. He's at school freaking out. He's crying he's cutting himself. He's I. Mean obviously visibly upset to anyone in his area that the can witness this boy the student at school he's a mass, and then when the resource officers starts speaking with him, I'm guessing this.

"Nine, hundred, ninety when they were doing those changes. So even with us most students we go. Well creatively. How do you want to what kind of changes do you WanNa make we have a program in Chicago on our Design Explorer Program and we called Twenty four twenty, twenty five colored rebranding themselves right because here on the south side of Chicago, you have young men in their pre brandon. Like. Well, if they wear their hair this way or if they do this and that means they're they're this. Slide no, that's your perception. So but we talked in themselves and we say, well, you know this is what people are saying who are you did you? So we take that. Pass up soon here on. Shall we use that in? To about their brands, I talked to him about my brain. Right and then they rebrand themselves and in a few of those young men and now turned into successful businesses. So as Moses is in the trenches, actually getting things down, we do all kinds of programs express yourself portrait's. Things that empower are the next generation of creatives, but it's not just trying to create an army of designers. We're about thinking like how you build a better bridge. How could you look at your community in designing in a better way? How can you use creativity as an impact change? So that's kind of our philosophy. We have these crater starter kits. We also make sure that we don't. We're not dictating to them where creativity looks like for them. We will give him the starter kits in talk about the tools they go onto their thing in tanks and create amazing things in. So modern lesson out of this, being able to see all that that happened you know and even with the diversity like the word diversity because a lot of people use it as a placeholder word and. When I was growing up in in even in College Guana schools and looking at projects and even with our firm in company. So we want to be diverse so they'll get an Asian person, a Latino person hyper. They go boop, do a brochure. Now we're diverse. No, you're not diverse. That's the your stamp version of diverse but being inclusive is different. That's. Can you can you? So that means having my fish fry you know you can come over and when you have your your food from your culture, whatever it is, you invited me are. Are Much is getting on the bus or your you're getting on a bus going to school. I'm checking to make sure that they're saying that's community being exclusive it's it's getting invitation to be able to be partisan. And so what's happened in the black community when it comes to be treated in design design is in a US, a European approach and is he even talk in schools you have a house you have all these different movements you know Scandinavian and that's viewed as good design. So but then when you talk about other cultures and things like that and other palettes and other things they go oh, that's not good. That's not considered. Good design will design is not always respected, and so that's one of the main things that we share with our young people that asked Moses. We're not taking anything away from because that's beautiful designed to, but the designed from coaching cultural communities that you're from is just as powerful and beautiful. So learn. You know if you really want to be a powerful Zainur learning understand cultures in my people do they do? You know learn a problem solving to, and then you can be you can not only design for other cultures and communities but you understand the fact that design can make a not only solving a problem but also addressing how people think I definitely agree with what you said there regarding kind of design is what's hot in this European approach. I actually did this like townhall thing. I. Think it was maybe about a couple of months ago or something and a question was asked about like how do we use alternative approaches to design? That's like not swiss-based or German base because that's all that I've known and. I think I just said like you have to research like there's so many countries in the world that are not Switzerland or Germany, or you know what I'm saying or The Netherlands where you had to learn to particular European solid design, there's fifty four countries in Africa that means it's probably at least fifty four different design types or cultures that you can pull from. You know not to mention countries in Asia and the Middle East and South America and Central America like. Spanish or expand your mind like it's not that hard especially with the Internet like come on. That's exactly it. That's exactly it. And that's really what we're. You know trying to get our young people engage into no. Again, there were designers and pioneers that while before you like the example Charles. Dawson. But also what they face Charles Dawson, for example, designing like Obama rallies hair product plays where skin bleach argue no coloring was involved. So they're trying to design and do things from a black perspective, but they're facing the pressures of people wanting into design things in papers and things like that to white. and. So they're being forced into this euro design approach and they resented that they wrote about they talk about it. So actually showing our young people, their writings and information and what they experienced that empowers them. Right. So as Moses is about not only just teaching design. And as a craft, but understanding your culture where it came from and how influences you and what she can do and what you have to share, not only understanding euro culture, the Swiss the bows the German but also understanding like you said, Africa Understanding East Asia understanding you know Bahamas in in all these Brazil and all these other areas where designers of colored have made a huge impact is not just act is madden really when you look at it in perspective you know from from a numbers standpoint, those numbers for outweigh the minorities far outweigh those who are considered practitioners today in design or add on prescribed to the when I grew up I, recognize the design. In many areas in the communities was a little boys network and so my mindset was okay. I'm here to infiltrate this process and you know you may not like me for it. But. You know obviously policy to go in in to to get connected. But the whole idea is that numbers in these opportunities after change, I'll tell you a story. A dear to me. I was going to USC to meet with Chuck Harrison Wedneday in was walking. Up to the school near the young people that were standing outside of near the young men and I walk up to them and in house looking China look and see what they were looking at star. World.

"How did you first get started with them? I got started with Ob. It was probably and almost twenty years ago. Now, actually long nettles around the same time. I was already my business and what happened was there was a conference of demand sent me an email. There's a gentleman, his name Richard Nelson I grew up with him and saying he's designer as well. The designer of color he works. He's worked with this firm Kiko Baden guns amazing pieces right but. Him Grew up together and he sent me this message over the phone saying there's this organization called organization back designers you should. We should learn more about it. And when I got it, I was like, wow, this is amazing and I looked up some things about them about the organization about David Rice and Shana as you mentioned it and they have conference coming up and I don't remember it was thinking might have been in Atlanta. They were having a conference in that. Basically say I'M GONNA. Vote of this. And I went to the conference I said, you know at some of the sessions and I went to presentation and they were talking about the different cities in starting these chapters and somebody said, well, what's happening in Chicago and David Says Wow, hearing thing but complaints coming down in Chicago I don't see where I took that personal because I was represented at the at the conference an onsite Westwood. I said, well, what do you mean I went up to him and I was like so He says, well, there's no, we had a student thing in Chicago by then it was. So I was inspired is a great conference I mean all these designs color and that really change my perspective. PROJECTOR in this business and how was going? Wow look at all of us. Starving through that just seeing other designers of color and. I and talking about their pants. So I quickly went back to Chicago. So inspired our colleague David has like you know what we want to do some Chicago we wanted in Rupa bus. Consortium of Chicago got together in head a little round table. Instead we got started we WANNA do a chapter here, and that's a we did actually was the. Co Co co-chaired Obedience Chicago for fabulous out of the chair for another four. So for nine years I was you know doing ob and Lovin it and learning about. Culture. So similar to you, they were before us, but you know they inspired in Canada. Are Pads, kind of intersect. There was an intersection there with what we do, and then with ob D- what happened is Greta. We started as a group we wanted to do more. We noticed that in Chicago there was you know in the public school system and everything if if? Artisans who citizens designs nowhere to be found. So we recognize there was no programs at anything we want to do something. We didn't WanNa be this organization of designers color. They weren't doing anything for the next generation, and so we had these design pioneers like chuck when like I mentioned earlier that would was telling us the you know you all number one is business people of the biggest problems we have people called doing business is we don't to park their brother sister grow attitude mess at the door when doing business and she was big. If okay. Definitely accounted. House the thing that Chuck told me I asked, what's the most the thing that we're missing as people of Color in business and how we interact With one another and he said that was. We don't autopart attitude. He he was. He used this. You know colorful words they're to. It s a at the door we doing business I bet stuck with me and I said. That is so I see that and I said saw with this organization with we're doing. In starting this up, we need to turn this into something is GonNa be tangible and a business. So I say we don't want to just be paying lip service to this. We want to really be trying to make an impact, and so there was a group of us in and with all respect with ob what we were doing with ocd we were like, well, our path projector you're in Chicago is in Chicago chapter start really going to start really really getting big and we started to say, well, we're doing things on the mentoring. Front, and but we recognize that there were certain legal things that wasn't in place really for obedient. So let me say we have to make sure from a business perspective that we not just doing. This would add it to that. We have this stuff in place in. This is a business where it's going to be sustained and make an impact that goes beyond Darla. For the next generation that they can take us Moses in do whatever they choose. Right. So that was our objective we came up with the term project as most as as Moses is a scientific term, it actually means. Creator fluids from money into the spectrum to the other. So we just added the rate of to that, and we just said this is about creative fluids in our community going from one end. Of the spectrum to the other, then we came up with and we sat in a it was a company called giant step in a yeah may aired Bailey who was part of a group. Lisa. Moran of the just trimming him as a bunch of us that just sit. Let's turn into something silent Angela Williams, all these folks of color and we kind of went from OBT OCD in reformatted ourselves into project. Moses in the rest, just it just took off from there. So as Moses. One person thing. It's a group of people who believes Dream Self expression and community that was our our tag you know and that we also recognize that the world is designed by design. In We're dealing with not being included by design and we recognize that that you design inclusion things like that. And people are starting to people who've get a lot of observers but actually doing work to make a change people weren't doing. And we were like well. Moses has to be something has actually in the trenches that's making these changes and and not asking for permission to to make the change because that's how things don't change. You know under the things I learned brearley's that either with the civil rights movement that was a movement down by young people. You know you see him now and you go out talking be like I said you realize like one, thousand,.

So I literally of inspired by these superheroes in literally. Like I said these though the icon in titled to this to. This. Day. I'm looking at the art on the loose website like your ultra man someone is Milan. Someone is C. Three, Po someone's black widow. that. So you see we have a matrix cells. Right we wanted things we do with autumn in with our brand is in calling ourselves creative therapies. We've you branding as a design problem to so many of our clients when it comes to us, they may think that they need one thing. But when we do our interview, we'll have sit on our couch. We have superheroes all over the office we have everywhere. And we try to get them to tap into their sort of inner self Amrou Creative problem, and then when they start to talk about you what my brand is this, our our my website is this they may think they're coming impressed work on the local, but we they out the big brand audie or they may need all these other things and so we come in with this kind of superhero mindset that we're coming in to save the day and to make sure that we rescue our clients from whatever uh challenges they may face and that concept and has been very effective for us. Especially comes to doing work in our communities. Design work for our communities, african-americans, infant backgrounds, also native of. So we do a lot of work in those areas. So you're a ahead of the curve with all this superhero idolatry via movies and everything you've got. You caught on quick as good. I said to myself there's something to this. Hope so Marvel into this day I'm a fan of all that stuff. Yeah. Everyone remember ultimately was live action to right? Yeah. Yeah. What. Sort of like a like a precursor to save power rangers or or something similar was like Japanese show that was sort of dubbed into English. Yeah. What are the best types of for you to work with as you sort of started describing it when you told me earlier when I asked you what your title was you said I'm a creative therapist and even just now when you're talking about, we have them come in and on the couch like it sounds that sounds like that's where all that sort of comes from. But when you're analyzing the clients I guess it's kind of a good way to put it like what are the best types for you to work with? So for US I. Think. We like to work with people that are passionate about what they're doing, and we working on projects the deal with. Education a deal with young people but we also work in the corporate environment we worked for for example, Exxon is one of our clients be working. They're designing their annual report when diversity right? And reworked gone. Museum projects. One of our clients is actually the Marcus Garvey Museum in Jamaica. So we designed the Marcus Garvey, museum designed to Peter Tosh Museum in Kingston. Jamaica. and. So a lot of clients that you know the deal with Music Derek community deal with problem solving but mainly things about self identity these that are similar to project as Moses. We the energy that we create attracts those kinds of clients because. They know they were concerned about our young people that we do work in the community looking at creating opportunities in the crater round for for young people. So it's amazing. Be a wound up attracting that kind of work Okay. So you had this affinity for superheroes. You've put it into the business like I'm curious. When were you sort of exposed to design? It sounds like this is something that really you kind of had grandmas and she were a kid. Yeah. Yeah I was very fortunate. So my mother who again baby girl her name's Elnora Lockhart affects you call her baby girl. She wanted to be a designer, my family's from deep South from Starkville. Mississippi. and. My father from Jackson but my mother, my grandfather had over one hundred acres of man down in the deep South in the Negro Leagues and stuff play Baseball on his laney editor baseball field and all these creator things around. So my mother who have drawing horses and baseball players and and things of this nature. And my her sisters. When they got age, they want it to become teachers and nurses and things like that and so they became a part of the great migration north. My mother wanted to be a designer. She entered a mondays art contests books from like the famous art courses back in the sixties. Fifties and six. And she entered a contest in one and so from that, you know she wanted to become a designer but her parents didn't know what that was. What is this in Seoul? Instead they said what will you can work at? One of the restaurants in and so she worked one of the restaurants to build money to buy her own books. So she brought these famous, our course books, a series of them. And in was self taught, she started studying art in doing the exercises and sending them back and worked at A. Few things some things on the fashion, but mostly making clothes and things are sisters and and people locally in the area. So when I started drawing and doodling as a child, we moved to Saint Louis and I saw was Chiba I was born in Saint Louis and I started when I was like four and five I started doing leans edging and she noticed that right away and she took my drawings and put him on a refrigerator a baby you can be anything you want you grow up and be you So I got that could on that PAT super early I was like five and she gave me those books. So at eight nine years old, I have these Norman Rockwell and learning about these artists of Oh in these sketches and so I studied those books as a key it's about time I was ten and eleven I. Knew I was going to be in noon that I wanted to Megan impacted in Seoul. Went to a high school started studying design in Saint Louis was really hard to find a school brisk wind up going to a technical high school o'fallon text design, and from there you know start taking business things, Dale Carnegie Courses, and then I got a full scholarship to the Institute in Chicago Solo I. Oh, my mother and father for putting Annette Path and Kennedy endorsing my father didn't know what it was. You Know My mother my my dad was like more. You're going to work, use your hands and so. Has. Helped me now because I do a lot of exhibit design, you have to know how to build things too so. Yeah. That's how I got here. I'm curious. Do you still have those books? I do. I have four of the now I gave to my niece. Jaber. WHO's artists up and coming artists to pass that on. That's kind of a family heirloom to her and told her the story behind it. She's a up and coming artists yourself. And that's one of the things that I do project Bass Moses of course is is making sure that the next generation has access to these kinds of creative twos when I became a designer and started working out and used to always tell my mother when She Sydney to college I said I'm going to bring a degree home free for you because of the love that you've shown me but I started telling my mother would I'm going to do is when I become famous designer I'm about his big Old House Mc Donald's I'm about y'all these things you want to. Say Baby I'll need all that I'm.

"vernon" Discussed on Revision Path

"Through in-depth interviews, you'll learn about their work, their goals, and what inspires the as creative individuals. Here's your host. Maurice Cherry. Hello everybody. Welcome to revision path. Thank you so much for tuning in time your host Maurice. Cherry and this week I'm talking with Vernon, lockhart, creative therapist artists and executive director of project most out of Chicago Illinois. Let's start the show. All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Vernon Lockhart. I am a designer. I call myself a creative therapist. I am a exhibit designer, a brand developer interactive designer. Artist. and. I. Am the executive. Director of a program project called project as Moses out of Chicago. Now. One thing that I've been doing for everyone kind of just the start of these interviews during this pandemic kind of just doing a check in to see how folks are doing. So how are you holding up? You know we're given the space in times we're in we're I'm holding up pretty well I think one of the saving grace for me in a lot of this is. When you grow up on from the lane of saying boo as I grew up in a very rough area in Saint Louis and you know we faced adversity every day so. You know you have the coronavirus in things like that now. But for me growing up, you had to face all kinds of threats, potential adversaries so Well given the circumstances, I I commute back and forth caring for my mother who affectionately call a baby girl just can't for. So that's probably one of the key challenges but as far as. Things go we still have a lot of clients that we work with online and for project ASS? Moses alive things virtually with the students given the circumstances I'm I'm very grateful and feel very blessed to will be functioning at full capacity. What does a regular day look like for you now? So for me, a regular day would be getting up one thing that I don't have to do as much in. Okay. With this is not commuting back and forth so much. But getting up saying my prayers getting some breakfast getting on my laptop, looking at emails checking the circumference of the day clients. Immediate needs doing those usually that takes me up until about mid day I usually try to schedule any meetings I have around thirty two noon referee and then any errands I have to run out of usually do air early evening I'm a southern boy living in a city. CHICAGO. So I still have a yard and in a house and things like that. So you I'm out cutting. And things like that towards the evening. So I would call it a pretty normal southern boy day usually my average day but I'm a businessman at the same time. So you know it's a balance between the two but that's an advocate from. So speaking up about business you have a design firm called art on the loose is that right? That's correct. Tell me about it. When did you first start that? So are Donna loose very interesting. We been in operation. Now for about twenty three years I started in the late nineteen I'd say about ninety six and tonight six roughly. And we I was actually working at northwestern university in their at their center for Public Safety Division and we will working on a lot of. Copro shears and things like that in. So it was kind of mundane just no adventure knitted all in myself in one of. Colleagues that I work with addicts Ner we had conversation as I wonder do more I want to be free. I would have some creative freedom here in we started talking about doing our own design work. And in our conversation start playing with name ideas in that I mentioned you know I wanna be free I want to be loose in a good way right as a heart let's let's and so we kinda because we were both artist and he says so let's just call the artem loose in. That's how the name was born in banding Hannah came from this whole Superhero Ultra N-. Staying that I was called as a key going up still combat to this day and so we use kind of empowering. The word artem lose but also with the whole color Palettes, we used our background is how we grew up to create the the business name and I have to just this quick story about ultraman lousy key kids were were calling me ultra because my it was pointed they call me the football hero Alterman. I was like you know and I came home from school I'm I'm one of ten kids, right so I came home from school that I was upset and I start crying to my mother baby girl and I told her what the key is will call him the main she say at wait a minute isn't all tremendous food bureau SABA come home from school to watch ultraman every. Day, and she said I thought he was a superhero say he is. He says we'll take that negative and make it a positive and so I literally went up to my room and start designing year Alterman on and I, went back to school they pop my collar and was like they were like ultimate success right on alternate and so at three sixty beds. So it started all Japan. And took that negative in Medan deposited but also is one of my personal experiences and Brandy. In power of branding, and so I took that icon and symbol. Even. If you look on our business site, you'll see that iconic symbol for for ultra mass I knew. To this day in and I got my design in artistry from my mother, my mother went to design marks. So that's how artem loose in the name came in existence with the story behind it to wow ultra man that's a that's a deep cut i. don't know of many folks listening might remember ultraman though that might not remember. Can you tell us a little bit about what ultra man is? Yeah. Alternate Superhero Easy Scana I guess people you know from Voltron and things like that. He was Asian Superhero and he was this normal his out of. His normal self his name was Hiawatha he had to think all the Beta capsule. So whenever you took that data caps held to decide who will be transformed into this gigantic superhero called ultraman. ultraman got his energy from the sun and so you had this pulsating thing on his chest that represented his heart and so he needed to so he would fight off these monsters. These guys, Zillow type creatures every episode, another monster that he had to rescue and say the city, and so I was just so inspired by his ability to go in and protect the rescue. You're not you myself as a protector and so he would go in and rescue and protect than. So our lives or something just inspired me as superhero character Saba, come.

"Hey everybody. Welcome to this episode of the Kirk Show. I am joined by Vernon Jones who spoke at the Republican National Convention both spoke together on the opening night of Vernon Jones is a former Democrat? Or is a Democrat I want to have him say it from Self Vernon. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show tell us your story and tell us why you support president trump. Well, thank you so much. I am a lifelong Democrat I am. But I'm also out touch with the Democrat Party meaning. Them, they let me of the things that they embrace. Now such as no bores turn their back on law enforcement how the Democratic Party has treated African Americans. Although we've been a captive audience at infrared past thirty to forty five years, they haven't done anything reduce while look at President Donald Trump. He has a track record of getting things done. He's about results in certainly now he has lifted his entire country, but he has a track record. He's done more to help American community than any president probably going back originates. Talk. More about that because that is not the conventional. Perspective of the mainstream activists press they say that president trump is in as an enemy of black people were. Can you walk us through that especially for some of our listeners and viewers that don't always hear the perspective that you have Well. The liberal media is part of what I call slave masters They're the ones who literally plant. I would say those agent provocateurs to attack independent thinking black men like me in women from coming off the plantation why? Because they don't want us to be able to think independently. Now thing that was clearly demonstrating a couple of more recent examples one Joe Biden talking about if you don't vote for him, you ain't black to when he said that black people stinking or not as diverse as Latinos, and then more recently again with liberal media. MSNBC when you saw me during the interview with Craig Melvin because I was telling him sport is president of based on his policies and based on -sition and what he's done directly for the African American community. He didn't WanNa hear that. What he wanted to hear was what he asked me was in that was what he asked me I'm sure someone whispered in his ear, but he said, are you being paid by the trump organization that was bigoted in L. that shows that liberals s station are upset because I didn't fit their narrative I think you're there wall I didn't attack. Don Trump ironically, it was a report that was being paid and the station is being paid to attack Donald Trump and not let African Americans feel that they have people who feel express the way themselves. I do come on their show without being attacked and run back into a whole, but they didn't do. I'm not like Joe. Biden, I'm not. One of those which ICAGO stains that come out every year trying to determine what the weather's going to be. A groundhog yet I'm not a groundhog. rummy back in this president is not a ground hall He is really working to earn the black vote and they can't scare them off by the traditions their Republican candidates. So can you walk us through more of kind of did you support President Trump in two thousand sixteen what was your view of him in.

The Last US Civil War Pension

"Triplet was born in Nineteen thirty in Wilkes County North Carolina Sixty five years after the end of the civil war. How she ended up receiving civil war pension is one of those stories that you wouldn't believe if it wasn't true. But when you do the math, it actually does workout. Her father was most triplet was a veteran of the civil war. He had the distinction of having fought for both the confederacy and the Union. He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg. On the way to Gettysburg most fell ill and was hospitalized the illness probably saved his life because most of his unit was either killed or wounded during the battle. After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three. Irene was just eight years old when her father died at the age of ninety two after returning home from a civil war veterans reunion. Irene had a cognitive disability which made her eligible to continue to receive her father civil war pension after his death as a quote, helpless child of a veteran. She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty. The amount was never for inflation. The entire time it's estimated she received approximately seventeen thousand dollars over the course of her life. In addition to having received the last civil war pension, she was also the last child of a civil war veteran. The second to last child of a civil war veteran also had an interesting story in two thousand. Eighteen Fred Upton passed away at the age of ninety seven. His father was William H Upton. Who is a civil war veteran and the former governor of the state of Wisconsin who was elected in eighteen ninety four. Because of the occurrence of young women marrying much older men with pensions, the passing of the last civil war widow wasn't that long ago either in two thousand and eight motty Hopkins died at the age of ninety three in thousand, nineteen, thirty, four at the age of nineteen she married eighty six year old William Cantrell who served as a sixteen year old soldier in the confederate army. Blast Union widow was Gertrude Janeway who passed away in two thousand three. The last surviving documented veteran of the civil war was Albert Wilson who died at the age of one, hundred, six in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six he was a fourteen year old drummer boy in the first Minnesota. Heavy. Artillery Regiment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six there was an episode of the TV Game Show I've got a secret with a ninety five year old man named Samuel Seymour. The panelists had to guess what the guest secret was. Samuel Seymour. Was the last surviving witness to Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He was a five year old boy was taken affords theater and said in the balcony across the theater from the present it. there. Is a clip of the appearance on Youtube and I highly recommend viewing it if you're interested in such things. The. Last surviving person who was born as a slave in the United States was Peter Mills who died in Nineteen seventy-two he was born into slavery in eighteen sixty one and live to be one hundred, ten, one person was both born into bondage and live to see the moon landing. The last surviving veteran of the Revolutionary War was John Gray who died in eighteen sixty, eight at the age of one, hundred four he's one of the only people who live to see both the revolution and the civil war oddly enough he was born on George Washington's estate Mount Vernon and his father died in the revolutionary. War. The, last surviving veteran of Napoleon's army was a Polish man Vincent Markowitz who died at one hundred and eight in nineteen three and the last veteran of the war of eighteen twelve was Hiram Cronk who passed away in one thousand, nine, five at the age of one, hundred and five. In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten. It's amazing how the lives of some people can span such incredible lengths of time and how we can have lives that overlap them. We think of the civil war is being a long time ago. Yet we're only two or three generations removed from people who lived through all of these events.

At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses

"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.

Travel Photography in the Age of Modern Travel

"I. WanNa spend just a few moments talking about travel photography. passably because a lot of you are traveling right now although with Covid, maybe you're not traveling so much but we will travel again and lot of you enjoy travel photography and it's a big topic and so I kind of like I WANNA put my two cents into the thoughts about travel photography because I have a little different perspective on the potential for travel photography what we can do as photographers when we travel and how we can make something that will be of interest other people. Of course, some of you may remember a very old comedy routine by. A long forgotten comedian named Jackie Vernon that I thought was hilarious called the slide show in which he? Basically bores people to death with the slides of his. Vacation travel that that's kind of a cliche about what happens with a lot of people in vacation pictures. and. I think to some degree like all comedy I suppose this routine is founded in a little bit of truth because vacation pictures can be. Boring but they don't need to be. The problem with vacation photography is that in my opinion anyway I think a lot of photographers think it's about the location. And the idea being this is sort of the underlying principle that I'm going to travel somewhere that you don't or that you can't and I'm going to make pictures of that exotic location. I'm going to bring them back so that you can have the vicarious experience of traveling to that exotic location by looking at my pictures. And I suppose in the history of photography, there was a time when that's exactly what travel photography was. I remember a really terrific friends of photography publication part of their untitled series. That featured the work of Samuel born. A nineteenth century photographer who had traveled to India and or was it Egypt. Now I can't remember. That I want to tell you but one of the two year traveled to an exotic location I think it was India and made these wonderful photographs historic in their nature because they today take us back in time as well as to an exotic location that sort of the quintessential travel photography project I will take you somewhere either physically or in time that you can't go and I'm going to show you what this place looks like because it's so interesting because it's so inspiring because it's so exotic, etc.. Okay that's fine but we don't live in that age anymore where Samuel born or think of William Henry Jackson. Incredible Difficulties they had in travelling to those exotic locations in doing wet plate photography and it was incredibly difficult for them to go and so when we see they're photographs, we really do have a unique experience that most people at that time could not have could not go any of they could. They certainly couldn't take pictures because of the complexity of the photographic process but fast forward to today. Today we can jump on a jet. We can go almost anywhere in the world. You can literally be anywhere on the planet probably within twenty four to forty eight hours from leaving your house right now, and once you get there, you'll probably find there's some sort of comfortable accommodations. Might be a bit exotic food might be a bit exotic but basically, for most locations on the planet, you're not going to have to take your life into your hands. There's no risk you won't come back because the travel is so dangerous think about all those photographers running off to Antarctica or to Iceland there no physical risk of losing their lives in pursuit of the fine art photography, they're doing with their travel photography in these really exotic locations. They travel on reasonably comfortable boats with reasonably comfortable rooms they take their laptops, they upload their images to light room at the end of every day they're probably eating reasonable food. This is travel photography today that is a different thing. Than William Henry Jackson or Samuel born had to endure in the nineteenth century. So if we play out that same scenario today that. That those nineteenth century photographers used. Are. We really doing the same thing or is it sort of kidding ourselves? What we're doing is something really adventuresome. It's not as adventuresome as it might seem might be adventuresome to us because we've never traveled there but to photograph and bring back those photographs and show them the exotic natives who live there or the exotic landscape that there is there is simply not as impactful as we might guess. Not that it's boring but it's not the same kind of thing that it used to be in history I. Guess That's what I'm trying

"From piece out of CNN, by errol Louis Comma, Harris is a veteran campaigner who has made history over and over and over again first woman district attorney San Francisco First Woman Attorney General of California i Indian American elected to the US. Senate and only the second black woman senator and After Convention vote that is really pretty much mere formality. She'll be the first woman of color named to a major party national ticket but will she turned the tide for Punxsutawney Joe? I'm fine coming in calling him who's been running that rather lackluster gaffe. Campaign, six, thirty, nine, now, thirteen ten KFI. May Thirteen Ten K. K. A. DOT COM morning. So Gail Live and local via the collision specialist studios joined this morning by Vernon Robinson the third and a Bruce Abberley authors of coming home how black Americans will re elect trump vernon bruce. Welcome back to the show. Thank you. It is so great to hear your voices I am so glad you were available this morning. So I wanted to get your take on. The. Pick of. Kamala Harris and I am. Pronouncing her name correctly I hope I. AM commonly Harris as Joe Biden's running mate Joe Biden have anything to do with that pick Vernon. I doubt it. I. That's what I thought. So tell us why. The puppeteers. have. Decided, they want Kamala to be the president of the United States? You know it's possible that Mrs Biden plans to do a Wilson and try to run the administration from the east wing of the White House but. I don't know I. Guess What It'd be telling is if disaster strikes and they are actually elected. The mass incarceration ticket. What will happen is you need to watch who gets in the cabinet if they're all come folks than you know on the way out on the twenty, fifth amendment. And I can't help. But think you know it's interesting to Dunno. If you saw this but The Washington, post of all media outlets summed it up I thought rather well saying that basically what this election boils down to is a vote for Comma Harris versus President Trump for president bruce, your thoughts. Well. I think there's a lot of truth to that and I think though the this is an formula type of pick sounds odd because she's the first. African American woman to be on a ticket, but it's also an old ticket old form. Choice because The idea is what we're GONNA check off this box. We're GONNA put an African American on our ticket and then so that gives us the African American vote. I don't think that's going to happen at all I. think that courses already out of the barn and it reminds me a little bit of the Republicans back in nineteen thirty six who thought well, you know. Now, we really do have to go after the black vote but by the time they decided it was way too late and I think that that vote is already out the door that that Donald trump is still going to win twenty five percent of the black vote in this coming election and I don't think there's had Dang thing the Democrats can do about it. So this is a desperation move for. Desperation move. Well because what we're as choices Susan Rice brings a whole lot of baggage right Elizabeth Warren. Yeah well no, that's not going to happen. So but it is interesting that you make the point about. Dr Jill Biden because my understanding was, she was the stumbling block here after colleges or into Joe, Biden, about bussing basically calling him a racist didn't use the word but come on I mean you knew exactly what she was saying and Dr Biden Joe's wife not too happy about that Vernon. Well. What's what's really interesting? Is. that. come on during the debate. Essentially said. That Joe. Is a segregationist because he did not want the schools in Delaware to be desegregated. And that he specifically said that he didn't want his children growing up in a racial jungle. which was how he described what desegregated schools would be like the most humorous part of that discussion. was she also took him to task? For, working with segregation, you know other segregationists in from the south. And Biden's response. Is I work I Work across the aisle well. Joe That's not across the aisle they were all democrats. and. I still have to wonder we talked about this last time. I had the pleasure of having you both on six forty three by the way thirteen, ten, KFI thirteen ten. K. A. dot com joined by Vernon Robinson, the third and Bruce Everley authors of coming home how black Americans will re-elect trump but we spent some time talking about The gaffe prone. Joe Biden and his interview with Charlemagne, God words to the effect of if you have to. Think about whether you're gonNA vote for trump or vote for me. Then you ain't black but the gas continue, I mean this APP after he I mean it was just it was mind blowing when he went after that reporter and basically asked him if he was a junkie and then there was I mean I didn't even know how to respond to that. I don't know about you gentlemen but I was just blown away and then he gets into this. Whole thing about how the Latino community is more diverse than the black community bruce how does he get away with this I don't think years getting away with it. I mean I think that the idea he can he's basically said, well, the black community you know they're just don't think other than being Democrats they. They're never going to go away in the Democratic Party I mean they have to. I'm he just feels he talks like a plantation owner sometimes. And he doesn't talk like somebody who sincerely going after the black vote who really wants to say here's what I'm going to do for Black America where when his he ever said that and I think he was not going to say that because he has nothing to offer to the black community..

Because we've got we've got a ton. Frankly I I am sensing recurring potent. Because there's no way we can. We come all the sporting movies we want to. We want to talk about in one pod. Let's get a look at American. Sports is brutally the catchment Veterans Day. Anyway right but we'll start with football. This we are primarily football pud. So where do you want to know what your I think? I know what your favorite movie? Alzheimer's I bought two is out of the wildcats is one of the one of them is wildcats. It's it's Don's Goldie Hall a very young wisely Snot on the very young Woody Harrelson According to imdb this was the debut of both of those actors. But I'm pretty she'll movie debut. I'm national it was the actual movie debut. All Wesley Snot Stink. Woody Harrelson Been Four inches by that wasn't cheers. Yeah uncommon yeah but I think as far as me Davies go Wesley Snipes. He's movie debuts. And it's really good. The premise of the film is Goldie. Hawn been brought up. As the daughter of a record. Breaking football had coached. She taught football. She knows football inside is desperate for job. She's the truck. Athletics coach very posh high schools and she applies for the Varsity Football Team Coaching job. She doesn't get it. And then the regional director fought says. Yeah I know whether the school that you could call it football great. I'll take it and it's starring Trojans a high school in the middle you know. Crime is high plotting awe you know the stereotypes portrayed in the movie on she takes the job on the rescue straight. Unexploited is got really bad. Jokes a The acting is like perfect Goldie Hawn movie. She's really fully physically. This is golden peak movie. Epa She I think. She's a very underrated. Comedic actress in the body as well as her acting skills to tell a joke like she or great physical comic she started out on a show in the. I think it must have been the late sixties in America could ruin a Martin laughing sketch show which was really ahead of its time it really subversive that you remember the gagging the simpsons when they talk about Donald Trump being president talks about that same thing. Ronin often years ago distorted clip on. Everything's on Youtube. Where they kind of rock up in. Its psychedelic since the sixties and they have heads popping up an ACM massive stars in our John Wayne Road John Wayne walks up and did a line just a paid out nowhere and I'm sure it implies the muppets and things that lot John Actors on that day. They're not exactly. It was a real pre Costa Saturday night. Live and go. Home is one of them right and they get. Yeah like the biggest stars in the business doing guest spots on one crop up as well as John. Wayne just suddenly appears and at the time he was you know one of the biggest stars in the world and He did a line to saying something like this guy wants told me to shoot first and ask questions later. I was going to ask him why but I had to shoot him for certain stuff like that and they did a gag on it President Ronald Reagan and this is like nineteen sixty eight. Because I think regular just go into politics and everyone's everyone's pacing themselves and you know that was a pre custody the Simpsons Simpson's guy so that's why she started anyway she. She's terrific on that is what just finding someone that could stuck on on Youtube wildcats eighty-six six its peak peak. Odi Hood isn't it off on it so good. It's nothing new endo football jokes kind of in our culture as well. How good is the football action? Because that's GONNA come up with terrible live at four it right. Yeah exactly exactly. The continuity misfield is probably worse than any of the movie you've seen it's like guys play football and then we'll do some coast. Yes but they play the game of football and then five weeks later. It seems they did the pickups where the players are in different uniforms where Alvin. He's not even the same actor playing the position of quarterback running by Kobe CBA. It's horrendous but because I was obsessed with football eighty five eighty six when we used to go to the video shops we used to always get wildcats on the nine thousand nine hundred five story. The Chicago Bears Nice on crunch time. Parties hits his. Yeah remember that whole NFL NFL VHS series out of Canada video shop three. You got three fifty three movies. Yeah you get old is the yeah. I think he was like you know my data get Sunday night. Blues Brother's on Golden Pond. We go great a football movie that we'd just sit watch all the over all again. I'm honest declined the actual VHS of the story of the Chicago says I'm the VHS of coach. Tom So every now and again. I go into my kind of Mon- shed Gazebo in the garden. Put on a of windiest Chicago buzzing. I'm just sit down and kind of reminisce every something. So we've you and I spoke about seventy times in the past. There's something so calming and wool about films made in the Sierra John. Hughes I guess is the is the prototype. Is the master of the Genre Right so pretty much? Anything Join US touched. It was representative. This is part partly the I guess. I was watching Ferris. Bueller getting other shut my two boys for the first time I watched it. It was at. It's on Netflix. As twelve right so I could have figured well. It's going to reach a little bit for them. But they're old enough to get it to see the avengers. Eventually twelve is definitely a fifty the language because the only thing that I can think call infers Bueller is the nurse but knocks on the door of the biggest loves to me that the did the other day was was planes. Trains and that is billed as a fifteen I was watching with my eldest and keep it Kenna Keanae because I can't think of anything and you know the website you'll know common sense media. Look it up check up. I forgotten something I noticed films said well there. There's nothing this is this is fine candy. It's Martin. We got to their car rental bit. That was quickly spread over a glow but these films and wildcats one of the media. In in as many John Hughes films I guess in terms of overrule overall positioning of the Arab by is is absolutely representative of the. And we've got those films that that we loved that. Take us back his. We will move on because you've got to look at a. Can you name the As you've watched wildcats over one hundred times can you name a Megastar Rapa who has gone on to a successful career in movies and is actually going to come up a little bit later? On in one of the movies were talking about who appeared in wildcats and he's credited as rapper Alco j. There you go Kujat. That must be. He's fuss and the guy who one of the main stars in it who gets recruited as the new quarterback who takes characters. Place not fill. Yeah Guy that played public. Yeah in forest. He pled played Boba. Look at twenty two percent rotten tomatoes walk-ups watch today's the full movies on The foam is definitely on Youtube. This law isn't there that you can. You can dig up. That's a great state. Go check it out. We'll push H my Kelsey Williamson Ninety five but Benjamin Buford but he also The bank Kaltenbach in wildcats absolute classic girl down on the. Yes Ninety six wildcats loss. Let's row. Let's roll to baseball. Wesley Snipes will could make that connection and Major League. Some major league came out in nineteen thousand nine and great businesses. What I mean. It's a massive hit. And you had you had Tom Barringer. Who only a couple of years before it being Ghana for an Oscar implicit platoon. So that's quite a Barrett snook up in in Major League Wesley Snipes Corbin Bunsen of law. Fame who look into this more closely. They made a secret and they also made major league. Three and birds was the original original cosmic. Do it will be Boston so loving network from Bunsen and of Charlie Sheen a also platoons by barringer and Charlie both scene and made that connection very well I would say very similar comics. Both houses within the movie have some. Barringer Canada dominance experience Father FIGURE ELITE ATHLETES. And then johnny she a platoon. These young and innocent but immeasurably. He's kind of the Rockstar any the Rockstar. He built us a convicted felon on work. Release for me Californian. Prison forgotten that right at of course he is a picture that has can bring the heat. Connie and that the success of the team started dependent on Sheen Bringing the heat. And it's a typical story of a hapless team it suddenly comes good and gets momentum when they shouldn't Like an Wesley Starts Pays Willie. Mays Hayes also That is Hayes but who rocked up as the president in Twenty Four. I think is later. Plays the What's his in it? Pedrosa Rauner the key. The thirty Proxima Cuban import with significant power and quite a few scenes in the film. That is so racially. Stereotypical almost certainly wouldn't be wouldn't be allowed to fill now. But I got away with thirty years ago and several of course four for Charlie Sheen coming out wild thing nickname and when he comes onto the field that's his music and again. Classic Eighty s movie has that final feel-good putting the of the back on and I mean so those movies that we talked about so far wildcats on major league. I don't think I can't think in this day and age streaming a binge. Viewing box sets of movies. I don't think the a movie the think of the would not catch agrees. Just really tell the story. Ferry fully nice lifting ended the main. Mike Yeah I warm we took it joins US right. I was watching drill. Bit The over there with with the kids which I didn't realize that was join Hughes lost movie. He's on it. Didn't he didn't direct it but he was as the credits rolling his name. I think it's like a story credit Cairo to direct but yeah that was that was lost. The last you is officially officially build on and that I remember watching that on a flight to the states. I the first some game. We're doing out there at the time thinking. This is great. I hadn't really heard a when it came out and that reminded me. But I guess thought because it.

"A difficult. There's a there's a girlfriend I used to have before go friend. And she didn't leave you again. She was an alcoholic and I was at twenty one. I I wanted to help okay. I didn't know I couldn't but I've tried. But she ended up in Notre England so I went up there to say hello and yeah see. Stay up there for England's difficult north okay. This winter fell val. The wildly lived. There is very difficult to work so anyway Does what I discovered because I was on unemployment only benefit. They give you a bit money every week. Like seventeen pounds a week. It was enough to feed yourself a lot more not again. Somebody called enterprise scheme which is a mega satcher price time. She had put a system in place. So you can make forty pounds a week for one year and then they would help you meant to you in a business. Whatever Garage Yoga you had some ideas? What type citing and graphics into that and with government help and those same meetings on trying to do here as well it's leg they're they're local version of destiny? But that should give you a bit of money and mentor you in a in a place you know they give you free space to work in. And so that's something I'm working with the ICT here to do the same. So Yeah I did that and then I I moved from there. After a few months into teaching They Call Tech. It's government run I Dunno organization and that's where they all this equipment and they he didn't know how to use it Macintosh stuff so I I basically operated it and learn how to do magazines and do production. And now he's teaching people how to do that at at the same time so I discover the ability to learn something really quickly and then teach it like known for years. Yes so that became the businesses just basically teaching people how to do it. Not going that lead onto. I went back to London after your nine year and then worked for company for a couple of years as published a couple a couple of months as a publisher consultant teaching as well and then doing my own so I was teaching every day. It was good money Teaching and then they said. Can you supply the equipment and then you know the the staff grant business very quickly for about a year and then it went bust. Okay so what happened during that first buskers discuss again. Well this is looking up and down if I never seen so many ebbs and flows right and this is again you went there and boom. What what what happened? Well well that they the government we they were giving you a government guaranteed loan was fifty thousand pounds. Now made a lot of money from my I I deal with the same company that I went bust. Okay because they have to buy all his equipment so I bought it might profit moved into four storey buildings supplying all the staff recruitment and training maintenance all equipment stuff and then start picking up clients but my biggest client they owed me like at the end they load about two months worth list of salaries of supplying staff. Wow and venture capital pulled guy. And I'm stuck holding the bill. I'd already paid the staff so I had no choice gold and start again. That'd be weeks brain dead and then you start again okay. Now let's see. I think I need a break. This is this is an amazing amazing story. And we're not even halfway per se right now. I've left out a lot of good stuff. Okay let's do that. Let's take a break when we come back. Let's talk about the next things. How was he was able to bounce back from despots? Talk about that more after the break. And we're back from the Maldives. I'm just getting back into the break with Sylvan. Mark Mark Vernon for a season finale to hustle share. I'm still blown away. I don't even know I can't even like they just how much things happen and just short the amount of time but what. I want to find out after folding. How did you get into tech shareholder twice? Wow I start against Mola Allah but I kept having these three robberies in a row and so when bust again start even smaller than what it taught me was to just be really careful. Don't extend credit and stuff like that all anyway ended up teaching a lot a lot of. It stuff guy. Yeah and then that was brought up about nine hundred. Eighty nine hundred ninety four and I'd like to be able to teach without being invaded. I had to figure AH put video onto CD already been done on videotape Deck Academy at the time. Yeah so I worked out how to put on CD okay and that was brand new wasn't even NPC's that and it was. Where were you okay? So I worked at a put like eight to ten hours. A video on CD Oke High compression so most products for desktop publishing stuff we knew and I actually also about ten of those products of period of time but we make the CD so we took a few three months to make the first CD. And then I went in one thousand nine hundred five New Year's Eve again while they went to Mac Expo in of Sam Cisco Okay and I shared a little stand and I sold CDs off to stand now and then I met my first employee there then we set up a little office with peanuts. Hardly any money yeah then by then and So that was the growth of the US company but there was some history from my previous going. Bus Rheinland Yeah and I put my ex-girlfriend in charge of the company. Okay very good so we we had we after about a year year and a half. We had a big deal with a publishing company. And she didn't like it. I I liked all that and then sunny lawyer's letter saying desist and come back to the UK. And I said okay. No so I actually split and Dan had to recreate all my own products again. That company went by the wayside and UK elite on the tech side and he stayed in San Francisco traveling back and forth. But you yeah most of the time in Silicon Valley South. I'm Cisco what was it like back in the ninety s when not much different expensive and got it so I lived in Converted little tiny shed on a farm like a like a one acre plot of land that was grandfather they couldn't sell it. Isn't that was in Stevens Creek Boulevard. which is right behind Apple Ella? So I drove past apple every day. My my little office Two men office and it grew from there. But basically we're making CDs selling them and then in Nineteen Anti ninety-six. We went online with the first video courses. So I did all this stuff. What was it called? It was quick. Quick Day yeah but that was the only way of getting video online and they came up with a new version stream online and I didn't get any joy from apple so I sent like email emails to everyone. That's always as job Steve Jobs. Whatever okay eventually one of those goes through and within twenty minutes there were three managers asking me? What can we do to help you? So what. Oh you ha- you've got the real Steve Jobs. Yeah with one email well. It took a cause I didn't know his email. A lover motormen insent like five emails bull and one of them was one of the amount so that was a big hustle. There absolutely. Yeah so you know you can't do that now you're gonNA end up in spam so we had apple support for a while and as we grew and But it took like five years before the market today in the in mid nineties in Silicon Valley was but it was new the Internet bubble on the same street as Netscape and and that was exciting and working with companies. We were in a kind of a boring content business right and so it's just like working with authors to get content out and then get them out and see and online and you can see some of that stuff on the Web The way back archive you can see us back.

"Underscore underscoring the score is is track nine on twenty two million million bucks. Am i supposed to google smashed his fist on his keyboard. Yeah okay. That's the song some of them. Yes dude track to twenty. Two million is the number one the number zero zero than lower case d. space east bays a space tease it spells death breast with spaces in between some upper case some lower and then to emojis what none of these are searchable and that's sort of the point i think for for this dude <hes> justin vernon he doesn't give a shit. Wouldn't it be hilarious to like a c._m._u. Nominated for an award show think he gets nominated every time you put something out but go look at the track list on the new one number one is titled. Ye eh why i a we hey ma is the again. This is like there's some coherent time their faith in terms of justin vernon this his incredibly decypherable compared to what we usually have to deal with like you man like hey comma. These are normal song titles. I'm not normal but they're more normal for him. We can at least search them so perhaps he's backed away from making all of his songs unsearchable on streaming platforms which was probably the move so he went and made the album title was weird in obscurity. She possibly could perhaps to offset that a bit. It's literally lower case. I common lower case. I which is which is just admittedly strange okay <hes> again. Nine is my favorite track. Currently here's the deal with their music. Though bonnie there it will make you feel like you'll start a song off. What are you going to feel a lot. <hes> <hes> i say it's an anxiety antidote and it is all of their music is incredibly calming and peaceful in most cases but you will start a song long and be like okay yeah. This is super chill but by the end you're like head banging while you cry in the instruments haven't changed a fucking piano and a guitar but the way justin vernon and his band are able to use momentum and the way he can throw his voice and voices <hes> to every goddamn peak and valley in any pitch..

"Have you ever been afraid to speak up to say what you really mean to have that tough conversation about money, he or about how someone's treating you or about something that happened in the workplace? This is a big topic that's going on right now in our world, and it's something that I've really stand strong to a someone who has kept quiet a lot. I've made some really scary choices in my life to speak up. I'll never forget. I was hooters girl and I was put in a circle with all these people surrounding me, and they were literally bullying me. They were telling me my islander was too thick to be a hooters girl mind, nail polish was wrong. And if I wanted to be ultimate hooters girl, I needed to fix it. My waist was too wide. If I wanted to wear the shorts, I was wearing just all these things and I literally let them get to me. I let them eat at me and if I had known what I know now I would have stood up to that. Would have said this is completely wrong and unjust, and I respect myself enough to say, I'm getting out of this conversation, but I didn't. And looking back, I wish I had people like Alexi Vernon in my life who have made it okay for women to take a stand and say what they mean and tell people how they wish to be treated and step up for what they believe in Alexia as dear mentor and friend of mine. And she's someone that inspires me all the time every day. She inspires me to step up and speak. Our voice matters what you have to say matters and with everything going on in the world right now can be really hard and tough to see when people speak out what happens, the judgment, the shame, the guilt. But if you truly have something, you need to say, you truly have something you want to step up and share. You should be able to do that without feeling guilty or shamed or judged. Because at the end of the day, our voice, our solar passion, our heart, it's all we got today's gusts, like I said, is very special to me and she has a book coming out which is going to be fantastic. I cannot wait to get my hands on it a prerecording this. I've not read it yet, but I know I've been to a live events retreats. She was my my coach Vernon, tire Yar. This book is going to be off the chain, but her passion as speaking coach. So she's speaking coach, but her passion is to teach women to speak up. And I just think that is so cool and so powerful because. Your voice matters how you feel matters and the more encouragement we have from other women to step up and share the easier it will be for each and every one of us to do it. I'll never forget something. She said to me a long time ago, she said, when you give yourself permission to step up, you give others permission to do the same when she said those words to me, I literally broke down. I couldn't believe that she was right when I step up and I share my eating disorder story. When I step up in I share my hooter stories. When I step up in, I share all the stories I share with you guys. I give you all permission to do the same. Like if she can do it, I can do it. You know, I, it's that that that's what's going to bring us all up as females as women. That's what's going to do it. So please, this episode means so much to me because we talk a lot about how to handle these tough situations because at the end of the day. It's not that we don't know what to say. It. Sometimes the emotion like, oh, my gosh, is this person going to judge me? I'm gonna lose my job is my husband going to divorce me or my friends not gonna talk many more. There's so many thoughts that go through our head when we think about what we should do want to say something right. And we talk a lot about that. We talk a lot about asking for money asking for a raise. We talk about how to really share what's going on in our heads and how to practice doing that. So it becomes so much easier each and every time you.

"Revenue and solid potential for growth. The best course of action is to wait until your company is on solid ground before attempting an IPO after decades of steady growth. Lillian knew this was finally the right time to take the leap in nineteen eighty-seven. The Lillian Vernon corporation opened on the American stock exchange now known as the new York Stock Exchange. It was the first company traded on a major stock exchange that was founded by a woman that first year they collected twenty eight million dollars from trading one point nine. Nine million shares in the company. It was a smart move. The Lillian Vernon corporation was still growing exponentially and now they had money to seriously invest in their future. Within the next year, Fred oversaw the construction of their new distribution facility which opened in nineteen eighty eight that year sales skyrocketed to one hundred twenty six million dollars nearly two hundred sixty eight million dollars today. But as Lillian learned before business success and marital success don't always go hand in hand in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight Lillian and Robert Katz divorced after eighteen years of marriage as Lillian later wrote in her autobiography, quote his eyesight and hearing failed and in his rage at life. He struck out at the person nearest to him me and quote, Lillian now sixty one marked her second divorce. With a bolt choice, she would no longer be known by the surnames of her husband's past present or future. She would rather associate herself with something more permanent and more personal her business in nineteen ninety. She officially changed her name to Lillian Vernon. The nineteen nineties proved a tumultuous time for Lillian Vernon, the woman and the company in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine for son, Fred hockberg had been promoted to chief operating officer and president of the company. Fred had already taken over many of the day to day operations of the company. And the idea was that he would soon take control of the company completely wants his mother retired, but Lillian now in her sixties showed no signs of slowing down in nineteen Ninety-three Forty-one-year-old Fred abruptly left the company publicly, Fred claimed he was leaving to focus on charitable and political causes. This was technically true. He went on to be the acting administrator of the small business administration, co-chair of the human rights campaign and chairman of the Export Import Bank. But it was rumored that the real reason for his departure was. A dispute with Lillian about the timing of this takeover of the company. It's possible that after nineteen years of working for his strict work, obsessed mother, Fred, couldn't bear the stress a day longer. Lillian later, said, quote, regrettably, I believe that Fred never heard my gratitude apparent criticism often sounds louder than praise and quote. Once again, Lillian demanding temperament in the workplace had destroyed her relationship with one of her closest family members. She'd Fanta learn the oldest business principle in the book, family and business don't mix. Lillies younger son, David continued to work for the company as vice president of public affairs, but he was his father's son. He had no ambitions to run the company neither Fred nor David, both in their early forties had children of their own to bring into the company fold without a successor. The aging Lillian would have to stay on and shepherd the Lillian Vernon corporation through the nineties herself. The early nineties were difficult time for everyone in the mail order industry. In the fifties. There had been only a few dozen mail order catalogs in circulation by the nineties. There were more than ten thousand and they were all competing with shopping malls discount chains like WalMart and TV channels like the home shopping network with the market. So oversaturated the Lillian Vernon corporation would have to do something different to set themselves apart in nineteen Ninety-four Lillian turned her focus. To new technologies TV shopping and the internet items from the Lillian Vernon catalogue were sold on QVC shopping network, and the entire catalogue was included on one of the first major online shopping CD roms a year later, the company launched their AOL storefront including an online catalogue and website. Lillian was practicing unnecessary business principle
