Travels Through Time
Damian Dibben: Venice and ‘The Colour Storm' (1510)

Travels Through Time

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 6, 2022 43:58


This week we are off to see some of the Renaissance masters at work with the acclaimed novelist Damian Dibben. * In the early years of the sixteenth century Venice was not only a place of great power it was a site of huge cultural splendour. In particular a new generation of artists were animating the buildings like never before. And unlike many of the other Renaissance painters, the Venetians were not solely obsessed by line and form; they were equally interested in the allure and possibility of colour.  In this episode (with a short detour to the Sistine Chapel) we set our gaze on a place that is still affectionately known as the Queen of the Adriatic. In doing so we look at two of its great artists as they work with their cobalts and ultramarines. One of them, Titian, is well known to us. The other, Giorgione, or ‘Big George', is a more elusive character. Only a small number of Giorgione's paintings survive today, but they convey his strange and brilliant originality. Art historians have spent centuries trying to make sense of his enigmatic depictions, which are suffused with a misty light that seems to have drifted straight off the lagoon. Damian Dibben's novels have been translated into twenty-seven languages and published in over forty countries. His series The History Keepers was an international publishing phenomenon. His new book is The Colour Storm. Show notes Scene One: 1510. Titian, the 22 year old Venetian painter paints his 'Man with a Quilted Sleeve. Scene Two: 1510. Michelangelo paints the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. This was an incredible feat of artistic brilliance and physical endurance, achieved by a someone who was a true genius but personally difficult and far from pleasant. Scene Three: October 1510. The death of Giorgione. One of the greatest painters, a vital link in the history of art who would have produced stunning masterpieces had he not died at 33, probably of plague. Memento: Giorgione's painting of a knight and his squire, or groom, c.1507 People/Social Presenter: Violet Moller Guest: Damian Dibben Production: Maria Nolan Podcast partner: Ace Cultural Tours Theme music: ‘Love Token' from the album ‘This Is Us' By Slava and Leonard Grigoryan Follow us on Twitter: @tttpodcast_ Or on Facebook See where 1510 fits on our Timeline

La 29è édition du Festival International du Film Fantastique de Gérardmer, qui s'est tenu du 26 au 30 janvier 2022, était-elle un grand cru ? Draven et Zaius vont tenter de répondre à cette question dans cet épisode enregistré le 16 février, en revenant sur une grande partie des films projetés au cours du festival, en échangeant comme on le ferait dans la file d'attente avant une séance (sauf que là, ça dure presque 4 heures, je vous rassure, on attend quand même beaucoup moins longtemps avant de voir un film à Gérardmer). Cornelius and Zira - Ep#41 - Gérardmer 2022 Dans cet épisode, on va parler de Big George, des Misfits et de Glenn Danzig, de Type O Negative, de films avec des gens tout nus, on ne parlera pas de Star Trek (désolé Rémi), on parlera aussi de crabes chelous, de morpions, d'Isabelle Adjani, de Rob Bottin, de Kate Hudson, de Kate Bush, mais pas de Kate Tanner, de la prononciation de mots en gaélique, de Nicolas Cage, du logo de Danzig, de Kelly Reilly, on ne parlera pas non plus de Minor Threat parce que ça a été coupé au montage mais retenez que Brian Baker et Lyle Preslar ont fait partie de façon éphémère de Samhain, on écorchera des noms de famille anglais, italiens, hongrois, polonais et des titres en finlandais. Et sinon, je vous ai dit qu'on parlerait de Glenn Danzig ? 00:00 Danzig - Am I Demon 00:40 Introduction 03:33 Sommaire de l'épisode 04:49 Avertissement préalable : cet épisode est NSFW 05:19 Inferno Rosso: Joe d'Amato on the Road to Excess, réalisé par Manlio Gomarasca & Massimiliano Zanin 15:46 After Blue (Paradis Sale), réalisé par Bertrand Mandico (qui faisait partie du Jury Longs Métrages) Si vous voulez en savoir plus sur la filmographie de Bertrand Mandico et si vous voulez écoutez des gens qui ont les clés de lecture pour apprécier à sa juste valeur After Blue, on vous conseille d'écouter le 56è congrès du futurologie des Intergalactiques (le festival de SF lyonnais) 28:26 Jukai : la Forêt des Suicides, réalisé par Takashi Shimuzu (aka Jukai Suicide Village, ou Jukai Mura en VO) 33:50 Junk Head, réalisé par Takahide Hori On vous dit que ce film d'animation image par image rappelle un peu le clip de Sober de Tool 38:56 The Seed, réalisé par Sam Walker 43:19 Saloum, réalisé par Jean-Luc Herbulot 48:59 Emilie Levienaise Farrouch - Censor 49:16 Censor, réalisé par Prano Biley-Bond 57:42 Paranormal Activity – Next of Kin, réalisé par William Eubank 1:08:21 The Misfits - Night of the Living Dead 1:08:52 Bruiser, réalisé par George A. Romero 1:22:48 Possession, réalisé par Andrzej Zulawski 1:32:46 Hurlements (The Howling en VO), réalisé par Joe Dante 1:39:48 La Nuit Décalée (et non pas la Nuit Fantastique comme je le dis dans l'épisode) 1:40:39 Prisoners of the Ghostland, réalisé par Sion Sono 1:45:45 Crabs, réalisé par Pierce M. Berolzheimer 1:49:40 Anya Taylor-Joy – Downtown (version uptempo, beaucoup plus proche de la chanson originale, en comparaison avec celle qu'on entend dans le film, qui est beaucoup plus lente ; je le précise pour les puristes qui n'auront pas manqué de le remarquer, même s'il ne s'agit que d'un court extrait) 1:50:01 Last Night in Soho, réalisé par Edgar Wright 2:02:08 Eight for Silver, réalisé par Sean Ellis. Par contre, le film va sortir sous le titre The Cursed(comme le soulignait Draven dans l'épisode). J'ai lu après coup que la version qui sera au cinéma contiendra moins de CGI et plus de plans avec des effets pratiques que la version projeté à Sundance. Ce ne serait pas impossible que la version projetée à Gérardmer ne soit pas non plus la définitive (en dehors du fait que ce ne sera pas le même titre affiché pendant le générique). J'ai trouvé cette info en cherchant sous quel titre sortirait ce film au Québec. J'imagine que ce sera Le Maudit, mais ça me ferait marrer que ce soit Huit pour l'Argent. 2:11:46 Egō (aka Hatching ou Pahanhautoja en VO), réalisé par Hanna Bergholm Alors, le "O" avec cet accent horizontal, comme celui qui figure dans le titre du film, on appelle ça le "O macron". Faites ce que vous voulez de cette information. 2:21:25 Samhain - Halloween II A l'origine, c'est un morceau des Misfits, je sais, mais ça me semblait beaucoup plus pertinent de choisir la version de Samhain. Sinon, tant qu'à rentrer dans des précisions inutiles et donc indispensables, c'est Michael Golden qui a dessiné le logo de Samhain et de Danzig 2:22:04 Samhain ( aka You are not my Mother), réalisé par Kate Dolan 2:33:13 Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon, réalisé par Ana Lily Amirpour 2:39:17 The Sadness, réalisé par Rob Jabbaz 2:45:47 La Abuela (aka The GrandMother), réalisé par Paco Plaza 2:52:02 She Will, réalisé par Charlotte Colbert 2:57:26 Post Mortem, réalisé par Péter Bergendy 3:07:33 Ogre, réalisé par Arnaud Malherbe 3:09:00 The Innocents (De Uskyldige en VO), réalisé par Eskil Vogt 3:23:20 Conclusion: on revient sur le palmarès de la compétition, on essaie de comprendre les données chiffrées fournies par le Festival, on donne notre ressenti général sur cette 29è édition et on fait deux ou trois private jokes que vous pourrez comprendre en écoutant les épisodes de 24FPS consacré à Matrix Ressurections et au dernier James Bond. 3:39:46 Big Black – The ModelJe vous avoue qu'au départ, je pensais utiliser Mother de Danzig comme générique de fin. Alors pourquoi ce choix ? Tout simplement parce qu'avant chaque film, à Gérardmer, il y a une playlist d'une dizaine de morceaux qui tourne (avec souvent quelques bonnes choses). Et cette année, il y avait Instagram Girl – Kraft Re Vamp d'Anton qui passait, qui est un remix de Das Model de Kraftwerk. Et comme le thème de l'instagrameuse/mannequin est présent dans certains des films qu'on a évoqué et que, finalement, ça colle avec les paroles du morceau, il 'en fallait pas plus pour me décider à vous proposer cette reprise de ce morceau culte par Big Black, que j'aime beaucoup, bien évidemment.

Rhymefest talked about the obstacles that he faced trying to prove himself early on in the industry, signing to Mark Ronson, and his 2006 Blue Collar album. He got into his friendship with Kanye West, working on Donda 2, and why he doesn't want to watch the Jeen-Yuhs documentary yet. He discussed why he decided to run for alderman in the 20th ward in Chicago and the most important thing that he achieved in his life being that he got his father initiated in his family after being homeless for 30 years and not knowing who he was growing up. He also got into how his In My Father's House documentary landed him his first movie role as Big George in Emilio Estevez's The Public and working with Michael K Williams. He spoke about his conversations with Marilyn Manson and The Game as well as when he met Eminem for the first time at JumpOff and ScribbleJam battle raps.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE PODCAST using this link: https://anchor.fm/tk0442/support George Foreman Documentary George Edward Foreman (born January 10, 1949) is an American former professional boxer, entrepreneur, minister and author. As a professional boxer, he was nicknamed "Big George" and competed between 1969 and 1997. He is a two-time world heavyweight champion and an Olympic gold medalist. As an entrepreneur, he is known for the George Foreman Grill. After a troubled childhood, Foreman took up amateur boxing and won a gold medal in the heavyweight division at the 1968 Summer Olympics. Having turned professional the next year, he won the world heavyweight title with a stunning second-round knockout of then-undefeated Joe Frazier in 1973. He defended the belt twice before suffering his first professional loss, to Muhammad Ali in the iconic Rumble in the Jungle in 1974. Unable to secure another title opportunity, Foreman retired after a loss to Jimmy Young in 1977. Following what he referred to as a religious epiphany, Foreman became an ordained Christian minister. Ten years later he announced a comeback, and in 1994 at age 45 won the unified WBA, IBF, and lineal heavyweight championship titles by knocking out 26-year-old Michael Moorer. He dropped the WBA belt rather than face his mandatory title defense soon after, and following a single IBF title defense on June 28, 1995, Foreman renounced his title– the last major belt he ever held. He was 46 years and 169 days old, becoming the oldest world heavyweight champion in history. Foreman is the oldest to ever win the world heavyweight boxing championship, and the second-oldest in any weight class after Bernard Hopkins (at light heavyweight). He retired in 1997 at the age of 48, with a final record of 76 wins (68 knockouts) and 5 losses.

Boxing events all over the world for the next undisclosed amount of months have been canceled so why does Dana feel his organization is exempt from this quarantine? Also Big George Foreman recently had a conversation with former champion Deontay Wilder, and according to George everything went well. Will George serve as an adviser or a trainer for Wilder? Big George definitely has the experience and technique that could give Wilder a step up in his game. And last we asked our followers on IG "Which boxer had a style that keeps them watching?"

Meet Jo Good, the original poster girl for alonement. You’ll likely know Jo as the chatty BBC Radio London talk show host who can – and does – talk for hours a day about everything under the sun for a living. Yet – Jo, a former actress, is also a paradox because, despite her public persona, she most adores time alone when she’s not talking to anyone.Living in a flat in Marylebone with her bulldog Matilda, Jo leads a lifestyle which, in her own words, ‘goes against the tide’. Jo leads a hectic lifestyle, which involves hosting her radio show Monday to Friday, together with a podcast, ‘Dogs in the City’, and last but not least starring in twice-weekly blogs for her Middle Aged Minx YouTube channel. Yet, in the gaps between her work engagements, Jo ‘goes to earth’ – a phrase she uses to describe spending time in her flat, without seeing another human, and recharging before she faces the world again.Jo and I talk about her experience of losing her partner, late radio presenter Big George; her decision not to have children; her handy trick for leaving parties early and the stigma surrounding being alone during certain times of the year, like New Year’s Eve.It took just over an hour for Jo to become one of my all-time favourite interviewees. She’s a true role model when it comes to living a life less ordinary – a fascinating person who lives life on her own terms while bringing so much joy to many others.*Instagram*@chezspecter @alonementofficial*@middleagedminx*Twitter*@ChezSpecter #Alonement*@middleagedminx*YouTube*@MiddleAgedMinx

  Book Vs Movie Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe The 1987 Fannie Flagg Novel Vs the 1991Classic Film   "Towanda!" It’s Pride Month here in the States so the Margos decided to revisit a classic Book Vs Movie ep--Fried Green Tomatoes and redo it altogether. We loved talking about Fannie Flagg (a regular of game shows like Match Game for years) and the BIG questions from the book & movie Who is Ninny Threadgoode, exactly? Are they or aren't they? (Spoiler--they are!) At the time, there were major films that had a lesbian romance that was front & center to the plot. Many folks were confused as to the exact nature of the relationship between Idgie Threagoode and Ruth Jamison. (Just take a look over at Good Reads and you will still find confusion on that!) However, the Margos get right into the relationship between our leads plus the other cast of characters including Evelyn Couch, Sipsey, Big George, Smokey Lonesome and Buddy Threadgoode. There is so much southern goodness here, you will be craving fried green tomatoes when you are done listening to our show! So between the novel and the movie--which did we like better? Click the link at the bottom to find out. In this ep the Margos discuss: The intriguing life story of Fannie Flagg and her passionate feminism The incredible cast including Kathy Bates (Evelyn Couch,) Mary Stuart Masterson (Idgie Threadgoode,) Mary-Louise Parker (Ruth Jamison,) Jessica Tandy (Ninny Threadgoode,) Cicely Tyson (Sipsey,) Chris O’Donnell (Buddy Threadgoode,) Stan Shaw (Big George,) and Timothy Scott (Smokey Lonesome.)

Dedrick Asante-Muhammad is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is Senior Fellow, Racial Wealth Divide at Prosperity Now and one of the principle authors of the much-discussed report, The Road to Zero Wealth: How the Racial Wealth Divide is Hollowing Out America's Middle Class. Dedrick has also held senior leadership positions with the NAACP and the National Action Network.   On this week's podcast Dedrick and Chauncey share their personal reflections on race, family, and upward mobility, how class identity is incorrectly depicted in American popular culture as well as the perils and allure of TV programs such as Blackish and The Cosby Show. Dedrick also explains how the racial wealth gap is a threat to American prosperity (and democracy) for all people on both sides of the color line.   In this week's episode, Chauncey advises caution for all the Democrats who are celebrating a win in the Pennsylvania special election and warns the public to not buy into the silly narrative that Donald Trump is somehow weakened by all of the supposed "chaos" in the White House.   During this week's podcast Chauncey also reads a story about the working poor and a wonderful woman who worked for Disney World and could not afford a proper place to live--she was found dead in the car which served as her home.   At the end of this week's podcast Chauncey shares some fun and bizarre stories about a gang of little people who robbed homes in Boston and how a man tried to seduce a gorilla named "Big George" at a zoo. And of course, Chauncey laments the end of Toys R Us.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service - “Licence to Kilt” Welcome to SPECTRE etc. This is the James Bond podcast where we discuss the ins and the outs of each film. In this episode, it is “Sayonara Sean!” as the only Bond we’ve ever known is re-cast. George Lazenby is not the only new thing about this Bond - our cold-hearted spy now has all sorts of feelings! Join our journey on George’s emotional rollercoaster in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. * The pre-titles sequence (slowly) reveals a new Bond smashing through the fourth wall. Then the titles sequence (subtly) works to ensure we know that - even without Connery - this is still a Bond film. * Draco’s henchmen (or are they matchmakers?) do their best to help Bond and Tracy come together. * We are heartened by Bond finally asking Moneypenny on an actual date, before we are dismayed by his little tantrum. But Bond brings us back onboard by falling in love with Tracy using the magic of montage! * Bond’s new safecracker seems a step backward from the previous film, but DOES allow him time to check Playboy’s new direction. * Bond arrives in Switzerland - undercover as Hillary Bray - and jumps in Irma’s sleigh. At Piz Gloria he sees many beautiful “clients” of the “allergy institute” before he and Blofeld meet! For the first time? It seems that way. But why is that? * Bond’s alter-ego Hilly is having a great time with the ladies, but our thoughts are with poor Tracy waiting at home for her lover to return. * Bond is caught by Blofeld and stuffed into the cable-car gears room. Bond escapes this not-really-a-prison in what is so very nearly a great scene. * Bond heads off down the hill, incognito in powder-blue leggings. Just when all seems lost, he is saved by Tracy. This involves the grand Swiss traditions of a demolition derby on ice, and proposing marriage in a barn. * Bond again has to ski for safety, but Blofeld triggers an avalanche and captures Tracy. MI6 are no help, so Bond asks “Father of the Year” Draco to help him mount a rescue attempt. Draco saves his daughter by punching her in the face, while Blofeld battles Bond in bobsleds before branching off. * A odd bunch of people gather for Bond’s wedding, before Bond opens his honeymoon with some light deflowering action. Official SPECTRE etc Theory (OffSeT) #5: Connery can’t play romance We recite Connery’s entire acting resume (as we know it) and reach the obvious conclusion - as good an actor as Sean is, he does not take romantic roles. Harrison Ford, Nicholas Cage, a submarine… Connery avoids female co-stars! And of course, keep checking back for a link to our petition to have Lazenby’s hometown of Goulburn honour the great man by erecting a “Big George” right there with the Big Merino. Worst Impersonation Trophy: About two hours in, Col is concerned about Draco and M having a casual chat at the wedding. The rest of us are concerned about Col attempting a “Godfather” accent that comes out closer to bronchitis than Brando...

Lets open your Bibles up to the Gospel of Luke. Were going to resume a series we started quite a while ago. We took a hiatus, and now were resuming it again. While youre turning there, I want to read to you from 1 Peter 1:3. You dont have to turn there; I just want you to listen to what Peter says. Peter says, Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. A living hope… I want you to know that when the Bible mentions the word hope, or you see hope exemplified, hope is not what we associate it to be today. Hope today is like crossing your fingers and wishing for the best kind of thing. Thats hope. Its an optimistic attitude that there is a chance this might happen; I hope it does. Thats not what the Bible means when it says a living hope. [An example of] the kind of hope we normally have, for instance: you read the news about Brett Favre saying, Well, you know, if Aaron Rodgers gets hurt, and the team needs me, I might come back. So, you may have read that and may have some hope that Brett Favre will play for the Packers this upcoming season. If youre like me, April rolls around, and baseball season is here. My hope is that this year the Cubs will win the World Series. Thats my hope, but thats not Biblical hope. Biblical hope would be more like this: We have gone through a tough winter; all of us have. Spring, so far, has not been great. Im not sure what its like out there today, but yesterday was icky. Its been kind of wet, cold, chilly and cloudy. We know that good weather is going to come eventually, right? Eventually, its going to get here. We can say, I hope good weather comes soon. I hope it gets warm and sunny soon. Thats Biblical hope. Its inevitable; you know its going to happen. Youre just not sure when. How many of you think this year that Brett Favre is going to come back and play for the Packers? For real? How many of you think its going to happen? A couple people [do]. How many of you think the Cubs are going to win the World Series this year? I was kind of hoping for more. How many of you think that good weather is going to eventually come to us? All right, its coming, right? Do you see the difference? The hope we have in Christ isnt one of these. Its not wishful thinking. Peter says its a living hope based upon the Resurrection of Christ, based upon whom God is and that what He has promised will come to pass. So with that as an understanding of hope, lets turn and look at a couple of examples of hope in Lukes Gospel, the eighth chapter. These two people couldnt be more opposite. One is prominent. Were going to know his name; were going to know his job-a very influential job. The other person is somebody who we dont know her name. The other person is a person who isnt prominent. The other person is a person who has spent every last dime she had. Shes poor, and shes weak. Tragedy has struck both of their lives. Tragedy is a great equalizer, isnt it? No matter whom we are, where were from, what our background, what our social/economic status is, when hardship comes, were all in the same playing field. Pain hurts the same for all of us; loss hurts the same for all of us. Lets read the story together: Verse 40 (page 1025 of pew Bibles). Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed Him, for they were all expecting Him. Then a man names Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, came and fell at Jesus feet, pleading with Him to come to his house because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. You and I cant begin to imagine the fear and anxiety this father felt. As Jesus was on His way, the crowds almost crushed Him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years… Imagine suffering for 12 years from the same condition. She came up behind Him and touched the edge of His cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. Who touched me? Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, Master, the people are crowding and pressing against You. In other words, What do you mean who touched You? Really the question is who hasnt touched You? Were all touching You. What do You mean who touched You? He said I know somebody touched Me; I know that power has gone out from Me. Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at His feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched Him and how she had been instantly healed. Were going to see details of that in Mark shortly. Then He said to her, Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace. This word healed is the word sozo, which means salvation. He didnt just pronounce a physical healing on her; He pronounced salvation to her. In essence, He said, Your faith has saved you. He touched her not only physically, but spiritually as well. While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler… and said the worst possible news. Your daughter is dead. Dont bother the teacher anymore. Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, Dont be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed. When He arrived at the house of Jairus, He did not let anyone go in with Him except Peter, John and James, and the childs father and mother. Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. Stop wailing, Jesus said. She is not dead but asleep. To the one who had the power of life and death, it was like she was asleep even though she was dead. They laughed at Him, knowing that she was dead. But He took her by the hand and said, My child, get up! Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. Her parents were astonished, but He ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened. There are three characteristics that Id like us to consider in this passage. First of all, Id like us to consider their situation. Their situation was one of desperation. We see this man who was about to lose his most precious possession: his little child. She was sick, and she was dying. He was not sure if she would be alive or not by the time he made it home. We see him-no matter how much power, no matter how prominent his name, how important his position, how much money [he had] in the bank-tragedy has come to his life. He was a desperate man. We see this woman who for 12 years had suffered from this condition. No one could cure her, and shed spent all she had. She was desperate. He lived his life in community. He was the head of the synagogue. She lived her life in isolation. If youve studied Old Testament law, you know that the issue she had of a blood disorder made her unclean. She could not participate in the ceremony of the church. She could not be a part of temple worship. She could not be a part of Passover or any celebration. She was removed from the spiritual community for 12 years. With one, we know his name; one is anonymous. With the Lord, no one is anonymous. She wanted to be a nameless, faceless person in the crowd, but Jesus knew who she was. Jesus took the time to talk to her, Youre not a nameless, faceless person to God. Both situations were desperate. Truth be told: in life, we will go through desperate situations, every single one of us here. It will come at different times; it will come in different ways, but problems are going to come. Storms and trials are going to come to all of us. The key is how we deal with them, what we do or dont do when they come. It is a when, not an if. So into their lives came the storm. I want you to watch how they deal, how they cope, with it. The first thing I want you to see is the declarations that come out of their mouths. I want you to notice the words that come out of their mouths in spite of the desperate circumstances. To do that, Id like us to turn to the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 5. Would you turn there, please? In Mark 5, Mark gives us an insight that Luke does not. There is more detail to the story with the words and thoughts they had. Lets pick up the reading in Verse 22 (page 995 of pew Bibles), Then one of the synagogue rulers, named Jairus, came there. Seeing Jesus, he fell at His feet and pleaded earnestly with Him, My little daughter is dying. Please come and put Your hands on her so that she will be healed and live. Notice he doesnt say may or might. Notice the confident expectation. Notice the hope and faith and the declaration of his mouth. Jesus, if You will come, and You will touch her, she will live. This man had no doubt-no question-in his mind, in his heart, that Jesus could heal his daughter. Then I want us to turn to the woman and listen to her confession [in Mark 5:24], So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His cloak, because she thought, If I just touch His clothes, I will be healed. Do you see that declaration? If I just… He is busy; he has more important things to do. He has more important issues than mine; but if I could just touch Him, I will be healed. [It was] a declaration of faith in the midst of her adversity. Let me ask you this question; its a rather personal one: What are the words that come out of your mouths in times of desperation? What are the words you speak in times of testing and trial? What are they? Do you sing the Hee Haw song? Do you remember that? Did you ever watch Hee Haw back in the 70s? Those old farmers would get out there and sing gloom, despair and agony on me. Ohhhh. Deep dark depression, excessive misery, if it werent for bad luck, Id have no luck at all. Ohhhh. Gloom, despair, and agony on me. How many of you ever sang that song in life before? You sang it, right? Some of the young people are saying, What is he talking about? What kind of crazy show was that? Hee Haw? Well, it was about as dumb as it sounded, but we used to watch it anyway. Theyd sing that song. You and I have sung that song. We didnt realize we were singing the Hee Haw song, but we were. We say, Why did this happen to me? What have I ever done to make God hate me? Im a good person. How could this happen? I dont deserve it. Sometimes we sing all three verses. We sing them for a long time. Do you know that when you do that, youre working against the very good that God wants to do in your life? What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of our heart. What you want to come out of your mouth is Gods truth, not what is dictated by your circumstances or your emotions. You want what comes out of your mouth to be what God has said, not what others have said, not what environment might dictate. You want to speak Gods words, Gods word of life-His declaration. Friends, if these two could say it, you can say it. Here is this woman who had spent all she had. If a doctor had come forward and said, Hey, good news. I finally have a cure for you, it would have done her no good. She had no money left. Even though she went to all of those doctors and had the doors slammed in her face saying, You know what? We cant help you. We have done everything we can do, and we cant help you, she doesnt give up hope. You would think if anybody could have sung the Hee Haw song, it would have been her. She has a confident expectation, and she says, If I just touch Him… Thirdly, I want you to notice their determination. Notice their determination. Notice heres this little frail woman. Could you imagine bleeding for 12 years? All the iron youve lost, how weak you would be? If you were fighting that condition for 12 years… Im sure at this point, shes a little bit frail, a little bit weak. However, she is bound and determined to press on through that tough crowd and touch Jesus. She is not going to let anything stop her. Everybody was pushing and shoving, and theyre trying to get to Jesus. This woman says, You know what? Im weak. Im frail, but Im going to get through to Him. Im going to touch Him. She pressed on through that crowd. I want you to think of the determination of Jairus. Jairus gets the worst possible awful news he could get. A man comes up to Jairus and puts his hand on his shoulder. Jairus knows what hes going to say before a word even comes out of his mouth. He says, Jairus, dont bother Him anymore. Its too late. As he says that, he probably begins to cry himself. Jairus hangs his head and instantly, Im sure, begins to weep. It would have been easy for Jairus at that point to say to Jesus through his tears, You know what, Jesus? I appreciate Your willingness to help me. I appreciate the fact that You are willing to drop everything and follow me, a person you dont even know, and help me in my time of need. I appreciate everything You are willing to do, but its too late. Shes gone. Even though she was gone, he still brought Jesus to his house. What does that tell you about his faith? What does that tell you about his determination? Let me ask you a question: a woman who had suffered for 12 years spent all she had. No doctor could help her. The man had lost his daughter. She was already dead, and yet he still had Jesus come over, believing for a miracle. Let me ask you a question: What stops you? The first question is what comes out of your mouth in desperate times? The next question is what stops you? What stops you in your tracks? Is it because somebody told you it couldnt be done? Somebody told you to give up or youre discouraged, and you quit? What stops you today? This faith that we see, this hope we see in the Bible does not have to be contained within the pages of this Bible because the same Jesus who touched Jairus daughter and healed the woman is alive today. That same hope and faith can be yours today as well. I have a friend who I think illustrates this in a very tremendous way. Many years ago when I was an assistant pastor in Rockford, Illinois, a friend of mine by the name of George-Big George-was in a trucking accident. He jack-knifed his truck and broke his neck. When I say Big George, George is about 62 and 350 pounds. There is George lying in a hospital bed with this big halo around his neck and his forehead. He received the news from the X-rays that he would never walk again. Too much damage had been done. George let me know what the boundaries were right off the bat when I walked in his room. Imagine what youd be thinking or feeling. There would be temptation when you got that news for the declaration to come out of your mouth to say, Why me? Poor me. Im just trying to make a living. Im just driving my truck. What have I done to deserve this fate? Thats not what George says. George says to me, Pastor Willie, if youre going to be in this room, youre going to have to believe that Im going to walk again. Thats what he called me. George, after a period of time, met with all of his specialists. He went to his rehab in his wheel chair. He met with the head doctor and the therapists, all of those people. He looked the head guy in the eye and said, Will I walk again? Do you believe I will walk again? The doctor took off his glasses and said, Well, Mr. Hertzner, you have a fracture in your… He was using medical terminology. George said, Its a yes or no answer. I just want to know, do you think-as the head of this team-that Ill walk again? Well, Mr. Hersner, I cant lie to you. Its a medical impossibility. Is it scientifically possible? No. No, youre not going to walk again. Im sorry. George does his best Donald Trump impersonation. He says, Well, then, youre fired. Youre done. I dont want the head of my team telling everybody on my team Im not walking. Youre fired. People would come into Georges room-I kid you not-singing the Hee Haw song, saying, Oh, George, George, youll never walk again. What have you done to deserve it, George? You know what George would say? I dont mean to be rude, but you need to leave now because I need people in my room who believe that Im going to walk again. George was determined to walk again. He had a living faith because his faith was not based upon the medical report. It was not based upon what the doctor said. It was not even based upon his X-rays. Georges faith was a living hope based upon his believe in Jesus Christ. It was as if the same Jesus who walked the streets that day was alive today. I was with George the first day he stood up. I remember that. There were these two long railings. He had wobbly knees as we helped him out of his chair. He stood up and was like thats it. Thats it, and he went back down. That was all he could do. I remember hed stand a little bit longer with each passing day. I remember the first time he took a step on that railing, a shaky step. Okay, thats enough, and he sat down. I remember when he took two steps. I remember the day he walked shaking from one end to the other; his muscles were just trembling. It was all he could do to hold himself up with his upper body. He progressed in time. Months later, I remember when George took his first steps with a walker down the hallway. One person was on each side, and a wheelchair was behind him. I remember the day George took his first steps with a four-pronged cane. I remember the day that George walked out of that hospital but nothing but a cane. Howd that happen? George would tell you he had something to do with it, but George would tell you it was the strength and the promise of Gods word that sustained him. Times of desperation had come to Big George, but he aligned his faith and his words with what the word of God said, not with his emotions, his circumstances, and not with the bad report. What comes out of your mouth? Are you speaking Gods word to those situations? If youre not, youre working against yourself. Youre working against the very blessing that God wants to give you. Is there a determination in your life, or have you given up? Have you just thrown in the towel, It isnt meant to be? Maybe its time to resurrect that hope. Maybe its time to say you know what, God? If that little woman who was bleeding for 12 years, as weak as she was, as frail as she was, could fight that crowd and press on to You… If Jairus, after receiving the disturbing, terrifying news that his daughter was dead, would still bring You into his home, I guess I can believe too. One of my favorite artists is named Rich Mullins. He wrote Our God is an Awesome God. You remember that song? He wrote many songs. One of the songs that has really ministered to me through the years is a song that talks about this very truth. Id like you to mediate during this song. The tech team is going to play this song for us. There are no fancy pictures, no special effects; its just the music and the words. I want you to read and listen to this song as Rich Mullins talks about the reality of this life. What we do when we receive communion [is] we hold onto the elements together until weve all received. Then well read the Scripture, and well partake together. So dont receive it as it passes by; just hold it until weve all received. As they are passing this out, we have a media that we would like you to look at. This is a quiet reflective media we prepared on hope. As were waiting, you may choose to close your eyes and worship. Or, you may want to listen or read the words of this presentation to prepare your heart to receive from the Lords Supper. Lets go ahead and play that now. You dont have to be a member of Faith Community Church to receive communion with us today. If you are here and youve made a confession of faith and Christ is your Lord and Savior, youre welcome to receive with us today. Would you bow your head with me in prayer? Father, we take comfort today in knowing that Youre with us. We know desperate times will come, and how we respond to them is key. Lord, the cross speaks of desperation. It speaks of a desperate condition in which man was in. It also speaks of a declaration. It speaks of Your declaration of love, of Your declaration of grace-the forgiveness of a new beginning. It speaks of your determination as well that there is no limit to which your love would take you. As our Lord Jesus left Heaven, and went in flesh, walked this earth as a man and lived a perfect sinless life, that determination took Him to the cross where He would pay the ultimate price to bring man back to God. We are thankful this morning that the same hands which touched the daughter of Jairus by the hand and raised her up, those hands were once spread out and nailed to a cross. The same feet stopped what they were doing, headed a different direction and walked all of those miles to where that little girl lay. Those same calloused feet one day walked to Calvary where they were laid and stretched upon a cross and nailed there. Our sin was nailed with You. By Your resurrection, a way to eternal life, a living hope was realized. That is what we remember, and that is what we celebrate, give thanks and worship You for this morning. In Jesus name. Paul writes and says, For I receive from the Lord what I also passed on to you. Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, took bread. When He had given thanks, He broke it and said, This is My body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of Me. Lets receive together of the Lords body this morning. In the same way after supper, He took the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this whenever you drink in remembrance of Me. Whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lords death until He comes. Lets receive together of His blood. Amen. I invite you to stand as we close our service in prayer. Sometimes after a message like this, it maybe stirs up some things. It stirs up some concerns, some needs. Maybe youd like to make a declaration this morning. Maybe youd like to pray about a desperate situation, or maybe youd like somebody to agree and pray with you about a determination in your life. Maybe its something entirely different. Im going to ask our prayer team to come forward now and stand up here. If youd like prayer, theyre here for you. Theyre your friends. This service tends to be a little shy and bashful. Im not sure why. [In] other services, people come forward a little bit more readily, but Im asking you not to be shy. There is nothing wrong with saying, I need a friend to pray with me and stand and agree with me in prayer. Please come forward after we close. Lets pray together. Father, we are so encouraged when we see the faith of Jairus and see the faith of this woman. Maybe our problems dont look like their problems, but, Lord, there are desperate times that have come into our lives or will come. I pray that in those times, we will emulate that kind of declaration; that we would speak words of life and hope; that we would speak Your promises, not what our fickle emotions or changing circumstances might dictate. Lord [I pray], we would not work against You with the words of our mouth and that we would put feet to our faith; feet to our hope; that we would not let those negative words or negative circumstances cause us to lose heart, lose hope, and quit. Like this woman, and like this father, we will be determined. We will press on to touch You. Faith still touches, Jesus. Help us to be a people of faith and people of hope. We pray this in Jesus name, Amen.

I visit beautiful Lake Tahoe to hang with the mysterious and magnificent Big George, aka Dr. Ra y Sid ney. Ra y was the fifth employee hired at a Silicon Valley startup named Google, which later gained prominence for taking over the world. Today he is Lake Tahoe’s most prominent philanthropist, enthusiast of the epic sport of curling, and master of trickery and gravity-defying stunts on the wake surfboard. Ray has had a wild ride , emanating from a lifelong fascination with mathematics and peak performance in general. He hails from the highest levels of academia, having g raduated from Harvard and then grabbing a Ph.D. from MIT in math) , then headed west to land on the ground floor at Google. H is first workplace was sharing a bedroom in a Palo Alto duplex; later he was the guy in charge of ordering fitness equipmen t for an early corporate campus! He was in charge of database security, and once (unknowingly) blocked the CIA from doing Google searches because they were flaunting the rules! Feeling burnt out from the crazy pace of Silicon Valley startup life, he took a sabbatical of a few months, which is stretching into a few hundred months, most of which have been spent on the water or frozen water with his tremendous passion for athletics. An important takeaway from Ray’s story, especially in today’s era of celebrity worship, wealth obsession, and social media posturing, is that he never intended to strike it rich in the romanticized fable of the dotcom world. Rather, he enjoyed math, and academics, and solving software engineering problems for the pure challenge. In fact, Ray reveals that his plans during sabbatical were to work on some personal math projects! Alas, transitioning to sudden wealth and expanded opportunities have Ray diverted from the singular focus of software engineering to become involved in a dizzying number of causes, programs, and athletic interests. He is a competitive curler who funded Lake Tahoe’s fledgling curling club and travels around North America for camps and competitions. He is widely recognized (or barely recognized, depending on his attire) as Lake Tahoe’s leading philanthropist. He has donated millions to create fabulous athletic facilities around Tahoe and down in Carson Valley, including a new football/track stadium at Douglas High School and a championship running track at the middle school. His seven-figure donation supported free bus service to transport Tahoe casino workers to and from Carson Valley. He was the founding sponsor of Brad Kearns’s kids fitness charity called Running School. He supports a variety of academic causes like giving back to the Hertz Fellowship program that supported his academic journey and the X Prize Foundation. He recently earned an MBA degree from UC Berkeley just for fun! This show will get your reflecting on the beauty of a pure motivation for life goals, the value of a focused, precise mathematical appr oach to peak performance, and the importance of getting over yourself even if you are a heavy hitter. Indeed, George takes none of this stuff too seriously, as evidenced by the nickname he bestowed on his eco-friendly architecturally wondrous home on the lake: Tahizzle —of course a nod to Snoop Dogg , who has yet to visit but has a standing invitation. Cruise on his boat named Jorge Mucho ( como “Big George” in Español ) and you are more likely to get Borat impersonations than Warren Buffet stock tips. One can agree that Ray is living the good life and doing a great job giving back to all whom he encounters, but he also reveals that for all his freedom and folly opportunity, he struggles with overstimulation and a tendency to distraction like the rest of us. Brad and Ray agree to a future show addressing these matters of importance.

Larry and his friends attend the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy and have a great time. Larry goes on an Olympic spectating binge with ’08 Beijing summer, ’10 Vancouver winter, ’12 London summer, and ’14 Sochi winter. Meanwhile, he and his brother Big George ( https://www.bradkearns.com/2019/04/16/sidney/ ) have a fun excursion at a “sliding school” in Salt Lake City, where participants can learn to ride the skeleton on the Olympic race course. The Skeleton is that newer Olympic event where you race headfirst down the track in a manner similar to the bobsleds and the luge (feet first) competitors. Yes, you are sliding down the twisty- turny icy track at 85 miles per hour! This was the genesis of Larry’s Olympic dream, where he literally emerged from the crowd to pursue a longshot opportunity to represent the great nation of Israel in the Skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea. Never mind that Larry is in his mid-40s at the time; he went all-in with this odyssey where he traveled the world to compete at the various international competitions where one accumulates points and angles for a precious few spots in World Cup events and eventually the Olympic field. This conversation will get you inspired to dream big and go for it! Regarding his age, Larry decided to turn this to his advantage, stating that he wanted it to become an inspiration to others rather than a handicap. While he fell short of his stated goal of competing in the Olympics, you will gain a deep appreciation for the true value of chasing one’s dreams, namely the self-satisfaction that comes from doing your best and inspiring peak performance in others. Larry relates an exciting anecdote about a breakthrough performance where he enjoyed what can only be called a “third place victory.” What’s more, a member of Larry’s Israeli Skeleton crew became the first athlete to represent that country in any sliding sport. Larry’s devotion to the Israeli program earned him a spot as a team assistant coach for the 2018 PyeongChang , Korea games. Enjoy this great show about pursuing peak performance goals throughout life and appreciate the most important lessons of the competitive experience. *TIMESTAMPS:* We find how Larry discovered, at an advanced age, his passion for the sport of Skeleton in the Winter Games and how this applies to all sport endeavors. [04:11] What is it like to go downhill Skeleton style? [17:20] He made the Israeli Olympic team. How does one qualify? [22:24] On the different teams, are you helping each other or competing against one another? [38:05] While teams are in training, the competitive nature can cause problems. [41:42] One of the biggest parts of the Olympics is competing for something bigger than yourself. [47:02] Age is not a reason to fail. [53:07] Skeleton is the slowest of the three speeds: Luge, Bobsled, and skeleton. [01:02:33] What was the process of Larry qualifying for the team? [01:03:20] The dream happened.
