Despite all the excitement surrounding the program this week (which is lightly discussed), we have some serious work to do! Today, Alex recalls and discusses the legacy of the first Black quarterback to start a game for Notre Dame...Cliff Brown. What challenges did he (and other Black quarterbacks) face at this time? Historically, and particularly in the early 1970s, this was not an easy proposition across college football.  Together, we can restore Cliff's legacy as one of the most culturally significant players in Irish football history. Enjoy! EDIT: at the approximate 15:30 mark, I mistakenly say that Brown is 'six-foot, 100-pounds'. Since Brown was not actually a twig, he was in reality 'six-foot, 190-pounds'.

Why are we still obsessed with The Beatles, and is it healthy? Fifty years after they broke up, it seems that the mark they made on our culture has not faded. Does this demonstrate the timeless genius of the band, or is it a sign of a culture that is stuck? A few days ago saw the release of an eight hour fly-on-the-wall documentary 'Get Back', made by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. It shows some of their last sessions as they put together the album 'Let it Be', and culminated in their famous rooftop concert. Erik Davis is the foremost historian of the counterculture, and Anderson Todd works in the Wisdom and Consciousness Lab at Toronto University. In this epic conversational riff they examine what was captured in The Beatles' music and why it resonates today. This conversation was recorded in the Rebel Wisdom Digital Campfire.

Fifty years ago this week, on 11/24/1971, a man calling himself "Dan Cooper" hijacked a Northwest Orient flight from Seattle, Washington to Portland, Oregon and demanded a $200,000 ransom from the airline. What happened next would make the mystery man--who would be remembered as "DB Cooper"--an iconic figure in the outlaw history of the west and inspire half a century's worth of investigation and speculation: he jumped.

Play along while listening to them compete in games such as "Are you a Dead?", "La La Land" and "Tuckers Luck" The only podcast gameshow dedicated to Chris Tucker. --- BASEketball is a 1998 American sports comedy film co-written and directed by David Zucker and starring South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Yasmine Bleeth, Jenny McCarthy, Robert Vaughn, Ernest Borgnine, and Dian Bachar. The film follows the history of the sport of the same name (created by Zucker years earlier), from its invention by the lead characters as a game they could win against more athletic types, to its development as a nationwide league sport and a target of corporate sponsorship. This is the only work involving Parker and Stone that was neither written, directed, nor produced by them, although Zucker himself has stated that Parker and Stone contributed innumerable suggestions for the film, most of which were used.  --- Join us on the Socials: Twitter Instagram Facebook Support the show (Buy me a Coffee)  --- Transcription I guys an Nesho we're looking at an horn, machos fawn bog named McCarthy bleef stone in Park, Lookin N N N T it years, basketball, hello, everyone and welcome to this week's episode of one hundred things.

It was nothing. It was death thing an what's your association with the Murican Sports American sports. I tried getting into ice hockey for a bit a couple years back. I like the idea of isole know it's only port where fighting is part, the game as a trying to weed that out, but it is like you look at the history of it's like it's quite violent is quite fun. You know didn't really get very far with that, because you can't really watch it anywhere and the same thing having coupees, but I try I get into the baseball because I was in Japan for a couple of weeks and one night we was come back from the somewhere had a couple of drinks, but on TV and Japan's playing career in baseball really got into it. It s really enjoyable to watch and it's very slow, very pays you at a couple of drinks in you. It's great I've currently wearing my Hiroshima Cap, baseball, Jo wow. I did wonder what that was so yeah hey some of the best things I bought out there yeah I try and support them, but the same thing. You can't really watch over here that easily, if you, if you are interested in getting into ice socket, I do recommend going to a game because it is just as exciting when you're there I used to go and watch not an panthers when lived in the Midlands. So like we have a London team, don't we yeah, I couldn't couldn't tell you what they called anymore or all in all. I know is that not good panthers of there Nottingham G, MB, Panthers Bat back talking about unionizing again, John always with the unionized. We Open Up Reggie Jackson, batting for the Yankees. Now. What I do know about baseball is the Yankee Song Right. We have to hate the Yankees, because it's The New York team. I assume- and I think they've bought their way to a lot of titles, of something I don't know, but we don't like the Yankees. That's that's it. Even though our podcast baseball team is a Yankees of Filia. Isn't it John that really is a riders, the double a affiliate of the Yankees, which I wish I'd known before we picked them, but what ll get out eleven land, you leven yeah, absolutely she's a witch. The main thing about the men oponent a bit less a tag line yet line of the new of ow James Bomb Film. We've got a couple of facts. Last of at our start, I ca. If a sort, Yuyan kees were alleged and originally named the New York Hilanders, but the name was changed back in one thousand nine hundred and thirteen because Ne do is using Hal Anders. I don't know why Reggie Jackson's nickname was Mr October m yeah we'll get a bit about that late. Rest Yeah! I don't know much about Regie Jackson, because as soon as I went and looked him up, I actually looked up a basket Wolmar by mistake at likes. My regato you're, going to tell us about Reginald Jackson. This leave that ten, this shore, that one is they all look the same, don't hi, I lading in yea, they are going to ball involved of some subject is that's how much I do not like spots. Actually, the only sport I won't grow up grew up watching Robinia, no, not nero, because because it was my dad was always hung over and then they like noise, so cause its lacing play.

Isn't it and Tel become national sports is like darts snow up, Yep anything quiet, yea, Joe Blam, Baron Billard billiards. That kind of thing. I can tell you a little bit about this Reggie Jackson, John Thankful likes, please. He played for Oakland Baltimore, the Yankees, the California angels. It's fourteen all star titles, which I think is another smash mouth song will come to that later on at five world series championships, three most valuable players to term. I really don't like the idea of somebody being of a value he's for home, run leaders, Yankees, retired number, forty four, because of him, and for good reason, unlike Birmingham City, who recently retired a shirt for a lad that had played a handful of games for them because Birmingham city or a joke of a football club, it was inducted into the baseball hall of fame in one thousand nine hundred and ninety three, now I'm going to read you this story, the Batum as I as it was reported because this this is just the wording of this, the writing of this. At the time. It's so early S, so Jackson was a victim of an attempted shooting in the early morning, hours of June, the first one thousand nine hundred and eighteen a few hours after hitting the game, winning elevent inning home runner to a home game against the Toronto. Blue, Jays Jackson drove his vehicle to the singles bar he frequented in a push neighborhood of swinging pubs and night spots amid high rise apartments, man hands of the east side, while searching for a parking spot. He asked the driver of a vehicle that was blocking the way to move and a passenger in the vehicle began. Yelling absentes and racial slurs at Jackson before throwing a broken bottle. Its car after other passer, is recognized Jackson and began joking with him about apprehending them. One of the men in the car twenty five year old Manhattan resident Angel Viera, allegedly returned with a point. Thirty eight caliber revolver fired three shots at Jackson, each which missed the era was criminally charged. Attempted murder in legal possession of deadly weapon. News on the incident was the third ever story broadcast on CNN, which had its inaugeratin later. That day I mean that's too much going on. Then you know if that was to happen to a sports start day. I mean that like you'd, never hear the end of that, would you it's three shots is: will we get the Guy Washes with three shots at the hand, Canon so he's firing. These these home runs he's done to already goes for a third one and these kids, these coupon Rima kids, who I think, look just like the adult coop and Rebathe d. Some really good unreal, yeah they're cute enough kids, says yeah. Give us it give us a give us a third home run is no not no. Third, one he's already hit to coop. He hits it. Coop catches the ball some day, I'm going to become a big spot. Star says K, which is. This is something that I that I was tweeted about earlier one of the week now. We then have this this chap this narrator talking about the the rates. Actually Stephen Machat Y, all right WHO's, an insanely prolific, character, actor. The last fifty years he's started in TV shows from like star Skin Hush Kojak Mimi, Vice Beautin, the beast, both the original Ron, perman series and the newer one, which I didn't even know they did. It was like a couple years back SEINFELD GON to Le La Law, the XL DET space. Nine will be Texas ranger in the strain it's been in a ton of film star, ranging from Theodor Rex, the woe gobots dinosaur, buddy cop. Maybe I remember that sad lives, Cup free, three hundred watchman history of violence and the mother film has another exclamation a yeah. If you want to, for a podcast suggest this guy's career, because he's got two hundred and fifteen credits and in DB wow yeah, you know the worst. The worst thing of this is Davis. Now I have an idea for a podcast and my wife hates you, because I cannot do a third podcast suster one of my favorite horror, films, which I mentioned on. One of our shows recently were doing our top five horror films, and this was like one of the ones that always made it ponty pool and it's based in a radio station, a DJ yeah was yeah. That was a lot of fun yeah. I like one of the things I didn't know he was doing the narration on this until this podcast and I was doing with the facts for- and I realized- Oh Stephen Matty Kayano was a slow bunner, but it really I enjoyed that thing. I went. I didn't think it went because I was an fast pipes, action, zome movies, but that was proper slot bun and joy em, every minute, yeah and if you can't find it online anywhere to watch or can't find a DVD to buy, you can get the audio drama of the film on Youtube, which I was a it wasfilmed and recorded at the same time. I believe- and it was our long audio play and the long lines of awesome Wales broadcast o good God really yeah. That's that's right on my street. Okay I'll, be I'll. Add that to the to the mimory AD of things that I'll be listening to in the car next week. So this whole thing is about how sport is on its ass in America and surely you would think nothing is kind of is more prescient now than that. So it basically says that all they want to do is spend more time celebrating than they do the actual game. These American football players are doing a river doubt celebration which at the time would have been. You know very kind of Oh yeah. You know by the rive at the time was ye, but now of course, less so river dance, premed on the ninth of February thousand nine hundred and ninety five at the point theater Dublin was the Interval Act at one thousand, nine hundred and ninety four. Your revision show it has been seen by over twenty five million people- big Jesus Jesus- He a God, flatly made his money and he ah he, but he was only in it for like a yeah yeah, but his anchors gave it or something the is. Is a looks at you, your fatly. Looking you lie, you should be fat but you're, not not gonna go with Michael Fatally Joke Michael Battely, oh ileal, he'th loads, going on they're talking about. Does this the stadiums with awful names, so the color change names ones like the preparation, h, stadium and nice pad back the maxie tampon stadium at the rim. Think you know how much its gross to world wide. I dread to think more than a billion dollars, jeest seven point six million or were at that point: wow diculous amount. Monetary is its like it's crazy yeah. I think jay logs ass was less, you know, wasn't it it was con a million. I no more passes e t h the whole thing about river dances. Who is that for because i mean john yo, you've got the celtic connection. Of course you know being a scotsman yeah for you, i stuff a non it was. I don't even know who that was for it's a massive thing at a time and it's not like lane danson mars a freeze, but everybody could do it. You had to be really fast, so it was a really yeah. It was, i don't know who's directed that selling end. Do you think? That's why colin farrel so good at line dancing that is famously colin farel is a great line. Dancer is because he's irish right i go bein an is because he grew up in dublin and not on a fucking farm. The line from in bruce, which is something we have got to cover on. There really did as is going at some stadiums. I looked up. Philadelphia is the wells fargo center home with the philadelphia flyers philadelphia. I was going to say sixty nine, as that would be much better at the seventy sixes and the philadelphia wings. Nashville is the nis and micro state. A certain of the nissan stadium in his a microstation would be good, though, wouldn't it home of the tennessee titans of the nfl and the tennessee state tigers of tennessee state to university. Just where shack made all these millions charlotte is the bank of america, stadium they've also got the jerry richardson stadium and the trust field stadium, as well as the american legion memorial stadium was fucking poppies everywhere, but the yeah i mean i was astounded by how every stadium every single stadium is named after something, whereas of course in the uk, you've got a few. Stadiums have taken the opportunity to do that, but example down the road we've got. We've got carliles brunton park, which you wouldn't sponsor, i'm considering sponsor it for the podcast things probably going to cost ten quid. You know you've got celtic and rangers. Who will never do that and yes go, you know, but then you've got you've got things. You know like rother room play it some. You know some stupidly named stadium and you know people are accreton stanley who you can't afford not to, but if you did that with chelsea or spurs or man united, it would just be. You know it's sacristan, isn't it really almostt because of those big clubs? Although that doesn't stop man city with the ts leading i mean they do it arsenal as well. Wasn't it at type of course, nals the emerich yeah yeah, i mean as a forest fan. I know listeners it's a it's a sham. So as a far as fan, i don't think i've ever specifically purchased anything that sponsors forest, since it was le bat laga in the s and i used to drink a lot of the bats longer, but only because the the beer that sponsored them before no longer exists of, i guess neither does love back preparation. H, gentlemen: it's an american brand of medication made by our good friends at fizer. That's the twice on the truck. We've talked about fier in a jump yeh, that's a one! I go a we're in the dornaus old, her tea, all right. Okay, we're all you be e! Bad one, all the all the push farmers in penrith we got ours, it's using the treatment of hemoroid, of course, and emeroids are caused in part, at least by inflam blood vessels and most versions of preparation, each work by reducing inflammation in blood vessels, different formulas, but in greece it includes three percent shark liver oil. Get some of that short liver oil in uranus, gentlemen, is the story there. I think on she's also good for healing tattoos. I've heard all right, okay, sure if it's fully safe to use on them, but when i had a friend who's like you had tattoos, you always used to get it here, like four leaves on or use preparation age for it all right. I just wench hit to a pantin and a a in i plan a e pantin line of it and is happy with that. Tan was what i put on mine when i got mine on manafacter years ago, yeah, because it was the thing that you were told today, yeah, so there's this football player can't remember who we signed, for he thinks he's that miami is at minnesota. He's played here there and everywhere, which, as we would call it in the uk's a journeyman pro, i think, is the term that they use and then they're talking about all the teams that have moved the jazz moved to salt lake city, where they don't allow music as a dig at the mormons it. If you have not seen the the fantastic orgasmo listeners, a recommend, you go and watch that, what's what's the two a book, a mormon, musical correct the buck, mormon of the we saw a few years ago in some london was fantastic. Sa daly cassite we're sitting either way that that's the one yeah yeah, it's something something like no worries. Isn't it it's like the lion, king or something yeah yeah, the raiders, moved from la and then moved to la and then back to oakland. No one in la noticed now. Here's why that's so precent, because the raiders have moved again because he did they did the la thing and it didn't work and they've moved again. They are now the lost vegas raiders jesus, but don't worry because in twenty years time they'll be the space raiders. I was going to see that you're going to move on as this tin british crisp chat, great yeah, so basically they've decided. You know. The whole story is that we need a sport that people can get involved in. You know that that sport truly is in the hearts and minds of people who love sport and that one day will kind of get back to that. We now meet adult coop and adult rema and adult keeps saying bein mind earlier on. He said some day, i'm going to be a big sport star. What's he saying now there on a big sports bar i'm going to own a big spot, but which is a dream of a lot of people? It's not something i'm particularly into because i think the probablys dead fo ones, but should we want to own a big sports bar gentleman? I did a little bit of looking into this. If we want to own one in the eu, which i think we technically still can we can kind of do it, but we have to jump through some hoops now i don't know what's happening in bala medinas in spain right, but i can tell you they are giving sports bows away. I assume it's something to do with a pandemic and brexit right: fifteen thousand europe for a sports bar at six thousand nine hundred and fifty euro for a non sports bar. I mean that's just fucking pennies yeah. If we want to sports bar in tor fan in gwent north wales, which looks like the phoenix club i found it on there, it's too probably is an a workingman's club, two hundred and ninety five thousand pounds for that. A london cocktail bar somewhere in north landon, five hundred and seventy five thousand pounds. Meanwhile, in the us, if you want one, the presumptuously named fantastic sports bar and lounge in westchester new new york state is a hundred ninety five thousand dollars. An irish pub and grill in midtown manhattan will run you one point: one five million dollar reduce london. One! Isn't that bad? Considering north london, i told be pier yeah, you would- and i was looking at- that the the turnover was huge as well yeah. We have a cooperi watering, the plants aptly. You can use your in dort blunts, but not rash body waste like in the movie, so your in his rich in things that been used for a generation health plot to grow. Occasionally they will include dna from bacteria which includes genes for antibiotic resistance. Oh, so, if you piss on crops, you could get crops that give you antipatica resistance, which is a considered a greater frit humanity than the climate crisis. All right. This bacteria will die out pretty quickly. However, so you got to actually store it for a bit before using our plants or there's certain systems you can use to third lie plants. The moment where household is quite ego friendly, we're getting cat litter from a company called natter sam, which essentially gives us a delivery litter every month and every month they pick up the waste from the cat. So, every time the cat poop piece everywhere, we put it into a bag and we send it back to me in the month and they transfer that into first lizer. I have written that down because that sounds like something we need to do with the sea. All the eco friendly people at there with cats that just and codo ok, the fasti there you go not not sponsor in the podcast, but should probably sponsor the so yeah. That is not something i expected to learn, but that's what this podcast about. So i love it so they're at britney s house they walk in it's like a docker's commercial. In here everybody i've just written everybody's, a was per soul. Really i didn't think you'd show up. Well, look. We wouldn't miss this! No! No!

The time was just part in o o an advertisement for chinos, because nell everybody was real, the chines and that that's that's the docket thing to it took me away because that i thought chines and khakis, but the same because it mentoit look up at this haly any difference. Apart from the thickness in the material, all right, obviously in kakis ave got pockets, but i was thinking, oh my god. For the years i thought i was ren chinos that to her khakis, i had no idea what i was wearing. She, no wine. I got colerne to it's. Just i think we is looking at to it. The majority was saying is more about the technic that we ever the actual things in the material so yeah, the more i or the more like. I assume what what you'd wear to know in the armed forces or to go adventuring. Perhaps i do the kaki yeah a skilled myself on the difference between chines and kakis. Here, okay- and we all now know that's great. Yes, they go to bricks. That's got britany room, they got the room, sniffins pants sniff in a pane and re logesi. Look at brit's vibrator. I am so jealous of you lintea. What are you doing in my mom's room? He's kind, the pats, a huge, no real bellarme kind of joke they had outside and they start shooting shooting basketball. You know, yeah we're really good at basketball. As long we have to run or dribble or anything like that, so you've got so so they bet these jokes. These jokes, like yeah, well, bet you two twenty dollar reimers like make it fifty do o got fifty dollar we've got twenty dollars, but he says we won't do what you guys do. You know this kind of the hood we're going to do the hood game that we know and it's baseball rules. So baseball rules is, you know, you've got a place that you shoot from and it's a single is a more difficult shot. The further away you go is that when i mentioned tors is that where horse comes, you mentions a hole yeah so horse. The only the only thing i know of horse right, i didn't know it was a thing. So if you miss a shot, you get a letter and if you get the forward horse, then that's when you that's, when you're out as it is, the only in is from those tony hawks games. You know the tony hawks pro skater games and you did you i was talking about you. There was a there was a bit of that where you had to do a various you to do a better trick than the person you're playing, and if i didn't, if you didn't get more points in thirty seconds on the first before due or hit the trick, you would get a letter, and that was horse. That's the only thing i knew it from right. Yeah re reference in two thousand and nine: it has the nba actually sanctioned a hall school petition. Okay, it was similar to the film, and that was renamed because of a sponsor, says sort of horse. It was called the nba all star, gyka competition, and you had to get ge. I co alright of ho. I see yo yehoi lasted two years because it's boring, i'm guessing stupid, yeah, so free froze. Ah it's like you're seven hand. Seven by in it, you need to get seventy one or ekart's by like having a toname with the affair, is to pinales out yeah, no sex, yeah you're all right, so they based this. This school they school these guys that coop spits beer at one of them is like. You can't do that. I said no, it's allowed it's a siout and they win, but the jokes get the girls is. What do we get, that it's the jobs? First, you get the jobs, then you get the khakis and then you get the cher an i'm like yeah nice that solace reference to it's a day later and they're playing in the driveway. The psycho in this case is steve. Perry, steve perry, that's go. Why is that boys? Why is the lead singer of journey a psycho? I could quite figure that out. Do any of us know anything about steve perry. That is he such a dig that no enough to sake anybody unattractive or what i don't an because he sings one of the songs. Lier one doesn't, i think, he's just the tone of his voice. He's kind of right. I have no idea. I know me and my friends used to play paul and we use to do psychos as well and the kinds of thing was. I just saying steve perry. That's like the shot. I always at everyone off well, we stay fire lit about journey in our in our current episode of everything we learned from the simpsons were man, tom were talking about the episode of vever ned flanders, which you can get elsewhere, just lit a good episode, so we learned a little bit about that. I used to use journeys, don't be be good to yourself. So as my interests music in wrestling, oh did you really really big uplifting song, and every time i hear i was like yeah, i'm gonna do me. Do you mentions now like yeah? I, like that great my question. My question to you is dean our journey crap rock or was rock? Oh man, the deftly l, the cheese scale, yeah very igh up on that because of everyone loves, don't stop believing, which is oh yeah. It was good, it's just it's well over played. Now it really is absolutely yeah. Well, i know someone who had it as their when they were getting married when they were coming down the aisle they played that so so, john, my jesus, so you did know them. You don't anymore yushan yourself from that a man well put it this way. It was part of the tv show, don't tell the bright, oh really right. If you ever watch that there was a show where they did the wrestling wedding m, and it was that wedding, i don't think they played. I because obviously coperate, but it was a way on. I think the wedding lasted about nine months. Jesus we well did this stop believing they told them not to stop believing that to parti didn't know who i so so that they're shooting and this this guy turns up this. This squeak right as to shut off the gaps right and this little tiny, scrawny actor gets mauled by the dog. I loved this character and i thought this character, as is basically just the butt of all the shitty things that happen to anybody. Yeah yeah the trip park arima on at de fate to get him a leading part. They only wanted to leads and the comedy and obviously gave him ham an exta all right. It would be the fort to get him an actual part in the movie he's brilliant. As sholde boy in orgasmo that guy i do that, have you seen it john yeah, a a bauta hamster style anymore. I knew you wouldn't as anymore, can't believe it's taken till now for you to tell us the story of how you don't want to do have stand. I do want to get the special edition. Dvid acts. Apparently they do a commentary matin tray and they do it completely drunk all right. Wow o, like im slagging, the movie off kind of jokingly, okay pop pot, the podcast before podcast yeah, a podcast for a thing yeah. I absolutely love these guys by the way, i can't believe i haven't had the opportunity to say it. I think they were robbed of best song for the south park. Blane, canada, yeah, absolutely brilliant. It's a great it's a great film. The music is exceptional. The writing is brilliant. It's i don't really watch south bark any more. I can't really watch the early stuff, because it's it's not great, but i can't watch any of the new stuff because i i don't know what's going on was what is going on with the new stuff. The last time i watched it, it was trump, possibly crooked, hillary yeah you, you do need to know what's going on in the current world. I i don't know half the things i talking about. Sometimes it's last time i watched it shif, wasn't it you're, ignorant you're, ignorant rage, train ride, train, that's still my utter favorite favorite episode that and you've been to you've been to japan dean. As you said, early run so you're a big fan of whale and dolphin. We and of an fukee yeah, i think about fuck, you wal fuck, you dolphin weekly and i haven't seen the episode in so long, but i think about that all the time i mean it makes sense. So this this character is shooting off the gas, isn't get more by the dog and they say, look take a shot and if you get the shot, then we'll let you shut off, shut off the gas. It takes the short and he misses. Of course, three months later, it's gained a crowd and it's basically this this kind of neighborhood game. That's people sat kind of on the garden and in the yard, watching them play it. Squeaks part of the team and one of the one of the lines is my absolute favorite of the syces. I hear your sister's going out with squeak. I go out with his sister now we're going to say, fucked up stuff to make a me shop wawes. We got out this sister fucked up. What's what's your favorite of the psychos boys, because it's plenty coming, i just i just i was a sucker for the nepean all right. Okay, i, like the one with the place, pinning small people, i'm so glad. You said that because that's like the last eva psycho, isn't it and it's really good. Just that the the mind one the mind one's creepy yeah. I like, of course i like there swear, he's, got his finger up and he cuts his finger off. It is yeah. It's like a fucking, forty movie. I really like that. All this as one way it makes their faces, where we all these retentis coming up to say i yeah that's a they're, all good they're, all good. To an extent that a d and squeak putting on all the masks in one of the montages, and only when he takes the mask off and they see, is real famous in a scare squeak, gets sacked and then move him in with them. Is it you guys rip on me? Thirty now forteen more times and i'm out of here we skipped to the final, it's being watched by there's a big crowd, there's local tv news and they win the world championship of basketball, which is like two neighborhoods: isn't it yeah? I got the shirts and skin steam, which is a tradicion method of denoting teams and school games yeah. This practice, not too short its promoted these days with, like girls and boys teams and and teachers being nance teachers are all manses. What do you? What did you leave tonight? Now, i'm going to get out stairs? I go. What did you learn tonight? Teachers are all not on yea a a suspicion. So let's say you got this, i know is an extra in this scene. I because i've seen this film so any time, but it's i've been watching it. So much s last couple of weeks and going back and watching bits here and they get notes. There's a scene where coo's about to shoot in the extra just behind him looks like he doesn't know how to clap. Oh right in he got make sound in on like extras and background and actors and he's got like a clear three inches of air between his hand. He's like doing this and at some point he looks, stops, looks down at his hands and starts doing it again. It's all these things are like a really awkward. I'm not going to go on see that now he's like second to the right second left of yeah taking the letter, the guy, when he's shooting and also you got the commentators in this game, one of them. The guy o, announces that the shirts, when the game is kato kalin right, i don't know if you know that is no, i don't anyone who's in to true crime will have. There is break up of that name.

He was a prosecution star witness and his testimony win against o j's completely and he actually went out for burgers with oj right before he didn't do the thing he totally did. Do we his ain with the zuka previous firms of j simpson? I e linked in some sort of way, because that was on as before yeah i mean that that's great fact, but not only that it's it's super kind of like twisty. Isn't it you know, that's really come yeah. Maybe the gloves were him his, maybe that's why the glove didn't fit and that's why they had to acquit a is that the second week on the trut we've mentioned that o j simpson case is well john. She an that that episode isn't live, so you couldn't have known that we were talking about that now, yeah, that's always on people's minds. Oh no! It's absolutely people and again now.

The naked gun franchise o get out is so this year. Actually i to thousand and twenty one lea nesenus frank, drabbing yeah, i mean he's gone like full circle of his career, where he went like serious actor to random action star to like overplayed action. Stare he's like bruce willis at this point, where he he's doing any old crap with action in it, so him becoming a comedy actor. I, by there's a d of this, that i no t o from comin down to one of the first things: a shy. How we talk about spirits all the time on why it's not been an eye with peter o tool is a yeah is a great great funny is a funny steve, guttenberg film. I said it fine, i said it. Okay. Did you just see that? Yes, i said it's a steve, go funny, steve guttenberg film, and that first place comes to me movies. Great. I don't care who knows it. I bit about mission to moscow.

Here comes ted denslow, you love ted, denslow john, who is it yeah ogus, it's cabby canbys, giving new york in a it's. Do this see of jesus lay and gentlemen, the anti semitic podcast that you've always wanted i've written a board naniele i rat board name but sini translated. I borsten double oscar winner, of course, earlis borgnine, what you probably don't know about to, and actually we can't talk too much about him because we know he lived. He lived quite as old as he did because he liked wankin as we learned in the scannest, but he had a video documentary film about driving a called earnest borgnine on the bus. I get all the birds on my basket. Yehoi anis bore on on the bushes, where he drove a bus across the united states to meet his fans. You can get it it's on the internet somewhere. I couldn't find it for free, but i assume i'd be able to find it somewhere on the internet year. Forty five minutes in me, you find an panopeus me, a dish. Porlacu you give me a lift to to the station. You get darling. Look like a bus driver o. You look like a happy yeah on a helicopter pilot. One of the things on our show is we do. Are you a dead m yep? It's again will be sort of. I give some information about actor and we want to say when they died and how they died. So on a little mini game. When did his ball? Nine die, which yeah go you putting me on the spa, fucking podcast e went those born die two thousand and ten seven tis an incorrect, thud and entee is incorrect, is two thousand and twelve all right and how did you die got habeo cocteau, so i did elde failed miserably at the triple jump in the olympics in london. I assume you just died of old age, kidney failure right, okay, his kidneys died of old age, yeah yeah. So if he got a transplant, thou we'd have been pissing like a champion, find out later on. He in a movie which we will eventually get to. So we scored nothing there. Dan is what you're saying so we didn't add anything. Not anything. Co school draw, that's a ship. If ever there was a thing, so he says i i want to make basketball and actual will think he said you. He said the problem. Is you kids, with your dan fogelberg, you zima, and your pack, man, video games? You've got attention spans that are measured in miller seconds rather than minutes. Of course, you know me. I like to learn a little bit about whatever nonsense is just just mentioned in it. In a thing, zemer is a drink, zima, clear, molt, clear lightly, carbonated alcoholic beverage made en distributed by. Would you believe the cues viacom deal that phase in it yeah due one thousan, nine hundred and ninety three market is an alternative to be an example of what is now often referred to as a cooler, steve queen's a big fan. Four point: seven to five point: four percent algol by volume producing the united states ceased in october, two thousand and eight, but it's still marketed in japan and zima means winter in a number of slavic languages. They do like a cooler in japan. Actually do they really right? Okay, yeah, i think strong zeros are cool, is and apparently they're the ones that people drink it doesn't taste like alcohol is a like ten percent in and like giant can so you just will hammer them back and they absolutely kill people right. Okay thinks some term they use for as a guy jin killer, all right, okay, something like that. But yeah. Essentially people go over there drink them and they don't realize they have drunk. They are until they drunk out three or four of them, and i just staging around the place. I mean i'll, be honest with you. I like it. I like a strong beer like an pa or or something like that, i'm drinking a form bridge hook. Imperio. I pear at the moment seven point: four percent i'll know when i've drunk that i will sit ye. You just will know when i'm d pack, man, god. I can't believe we're talking about pack manners if three men of our rage and ours or just just general demean or don't know everything that there is to know about that fucking little yellow bastard, but listen, developed and owned by bandai. Namco, formerly an come midway of created them, a tari. Of course we know was the probably the big one mass mejor rink. The first entry was released. No kid in one thousand nine hundred and eighty packman is one of the longest running best selling and highest grossing video game franchises in history. Just behind dizzy. I assume no o, god yea a chuck egg, its willie h, horosho skin. It's regular releases over the last forty years, so many forty eight million copies across all platforms and as grossed fourteen billion dollars, most of which was from the original video game. Recently i played, i think it was packman infinite or something no packman, one thousand nine hundred nine on the switch, which was free, which was basically tetris, ninety nine, but with you doing pack man and when you got killed, you were out and if you didn't get killed you and not yet people get killed before you. You fuck off. Oh yeah. I've seen that and on lane thing, yeah, i'm teches. Ninety nine i'm one hundred percent behind it's brilliant yeah, because once i finished fourth fucking loser, i am packman of originally called puck. Man. Yes well do, but they change your name because of the graffiti nist. That's things we learned from scott pilgrim, the film yeah yeah, the future episode which i'm specifically laying off watching again. I've got a steel book blue rays somewhere on the shelf, but i'm specifically not watching it again until we do an episode, because i just i want to come into it- cleans yeah yeah what yo start hating the movie, because you've had to watch it so much. Well, i say yeah if you, if you want to look back through our back catalog every film that we've watched safer, probably airplane, i hate, because i've seen airplane or to link back to this movie so same director. Of course, i've seen air playing the same number of times, if not more than years. I've been on this earth, so i've seen airplane, probably forty five fifty times, and i'm only for two years old. So there you go that's and care mab dolge bar, which we all come to point eventually tonight. He wants it to be like the old days. No moving teams, no teams moving cities. He wants everyone to be paid the same just like when i was a kid and i want them all to be treated like indentured servants. I gin wow, so they agree they do it and five years later we're in this little statum. I think these stadium sets are really kind of the cute little sets that it looks really good. It's got like this. This, this baseball kind of diamond on the ground, yeah and they've all got this garage with this garage kind of a sad. What looks like a facade anyway, as we learned later on when coop goes flying a this loess. I thought t was quite funny. I like that at the house bands did anybody spot the house band for the beers, a real big fish, real big fish. I have seen real big fish, probably more times than i've seen any of the band. I have seen real big fish, maybe five or six times and i've got. To be honest, i have never seen the same line up twice at now. I think there's only one of them left i m by about them, but i'm guessing you know all about them anyway. Well, i they o listeners, don't so go for it. So there's a big scar, punk revival in the mid s, so they got pretty big off that they lacked the winston i lead to so they didn't they go. I got a son kind of popular, but not really big, because i need like a big front person charismatic or you know really good, looking to step over being scarp on to popular culture. Their albums actually tell a story as they go through them from the first one was everything sucks, which is a self release debut to turn the radio off. They were telling a story: the band trying to make it for me to style a pop, the culture, the biggest hit off, that album is called sell out, which they consider they actually did to get to the album release itself and the label contract. Then they had. Why do they rock so hard? This is the alban they released when the in the film. This is about how they made it during the tor on the album two members of the band leave, one of them after committing battery on a security yard at the venal. Oh you'll hate him specifically, then now we deserve it. He re, then they hit the area where they fed up with what they're doing and released cheer up, which was a contractual release and they made which they had to make and then follow that we we're not happy until you're happy, which is the bitter and angry album which they released. After being, let go from the label themselves so yeah they tell a story for other albums, but it's all bounty scarf funk anyway. Yeah no and i own each and every one of those albums on cd, because you know the s and w and yeah real a few episodes of that mostly featuring covers, which they do one in this film, which is a great cover. That's a funk ton there's only one original remaining member, and that is front man, aaron barret m yeah he's eating all the rest of them. I think, is a works. Yeah the it was weird because they always had kind of like there's, always a big offish job. It's weird, because there's there's two front men: isn't it you know they always kind of had you know the two from men depended on the song, but yeah you got me thinking about cheer up, which is a t he's a really fucking awful, like doldrum kind of album that ends with a wow. I just want to go. Listen real, big fishing in which it is a is a saturday night, and i am only forty two years old so on an they've. Also got these these fantastic and look. I've goin to love with it. They've got these absolutely superb cheer leaders these overly sexualized shibuya. So it's hard to believe that the commentation, a sense art believe five years ago. This was only played in driveways and it's hard to believe that five years ago those girls were in grade school. You just like a lamb, because the eldest, the oldest you can be in grade school. Gentlemen, he's fourteen years old that we're back to nuns teachers is a thanks. Not ten ounces, yeah, absolutely well yeah, there's plenty of them not just on the bbc wish. I was on the bbc gravy train anyway. Coop hits a home run and it's down to squeak to hit one so squeaks watching watching everything, even though it's this tiny little car and they do this on, but he's watching on this hand held tv and the one thing i thought about this, and i know dean you're a bit of a retro gamer as it were. All i could think was. Does anybody remember the game gear tv, which was the thing that you plugged in the top of your game? Gas? My so started game gear thing that you pulled in the top of your game, get which had a little dial on it where you strolled through to get your tv channel, and it also had a massive aerial that you put it like: a fucking police scanner, a antal tv anyway shock all right. Okay, that cause you yahmni. What was your model of handel tv job? It was all it was as alba old bo jessica, yeah like that, could have been that actually, you that are the usual technics techniques- ce right, okay, the model of tv he's watching the tv, the bright, yellow one is a v tg action, sport vision with a three point: two inch screen three point: two inches man, deponent of your pleasure, o like your pleasure right there. I did recently put the batteries in my in my game, boy color. So i could play monkey puncher after feature in on what the fuck do you want, because they were talking about monkey puncher in an episode, i've got a copy of monkey put jane. I put the batteries in, and i lasted probably about twenty minutes, for i have to give up with a headache. Yeah that screen is just far too small to small is far too small. Wasn't the back lit one either? No, no wit. No, it was the yeah just that just the standard one which i remember playing in the back of the car on the way home from a visit to family and when it gets dark. You know you can only play it when you know five. Second, two second intervals when you go past the street like yeah, so this is the denslow cup which is named after an this organized character. It's like the f, a cup final, of course, or the world series. Coops got the final shot dennis lo at the guy sykes him out by saying that looks like your boy: denzil is about to buy the farm he's choking on this hot dog, coop sies falls drops over, they lose he's like. I can't believe what you lose, do the happy dance and that and it just bought everything to swimming back the amount of times. I would say to myself and those pissed off tou the habitants to in the habitants. Do the song as well don't have to do this song. Do the sung during the happy dance haco tries to help denslow, but it's a dozen egg night, because that's what we do in american sports. We have stupid things to do so. We can't get to denslow because he's being he's been hit. Wele the slow motion looks like a kind of a thing out of an you know like an american war. Movie is been hit by all these these eggs and and he can't get to him now. I couldn't help but look up all of the stupid fucking ideas that american sports teams do to get people through right. So i came up with a couple. The seattle mariners apparently had a compost night right. Where, if you arrived for the game, they would send you home with a bag of compossible material. Now the composite material was a cigarette but a broken down hot dogs and all that shit yeah. That was underneath the bleachers. So let me do very well this one's brilliant, the charleston vever dogs, the nobody night. Apparently they thought it ud be a great idea and get the teams and headlines if they had an official attendance of zero for one of their games, which is why they called it. The nobody night fans would already paid for their ticket were locked out of the game and no one was allowed to enter the stadium until the fifth inning jesus, because that's when the games declared official and the attendance is recorded, they they lost five. Two and all of the runs were seen in the first five innings, the first four indins i mean fuck off american sports, just go home, you've drunk twenty cars and you can still probably drive, or even if you can't, you probably will, because america he gets to denslow denslow, is basically dying and he's like what is it at least he's waving the the hot dog bun. He paid love to get you one, but they stop serving them after the upto the seven days and in the you i look to it o. Is it true all right? Okay, so so, if you wanted, a hot dog lad, the the ball game, three dollars at yankee stadium at seven dollars, twenty five at the washington nationals, national park, jesus and six dollars. Seventy five, a it t park, which is home of san francisco dear dear dear, for got in bread in it, just basically be playing some baseball ik, because it's only fifty peop for a hot we're talking. So totanen was kate vine in london that it was the otto has like a little arena of the side of it. Was it round the back of the o tos that when he just put a couple of blokes in a cage in an alley this, the the indigo that was it so ben you on the side of it? I've seen cementeth to his spoken?

Unless it's red stripe, we hanekin, but all right. Okay, it's decent book! We went to were to new wore a couple of months ago in manchester in heaton park and the only beer i mean i was driving to a number beer any way, but the only beer on offer was, i think, seven quite a pint and it was pints of karlsburg. It was a pint can of karlsburg. They put they basically empty. A pint can into a plastic glass to set you on your way for seven quid, because you're a fucking cat go, go, don't do gangs better, they did yeah she'll, do the fucking ar so de denslow buys the farm, as is the line and they're interviewing the interviewing cooper at the end. In the thing, and it's a thing in a me in america, they're always wearing these like hats and tshirts, and things that save winner super bowl winner and all these kind things.

Yeah. I mean people. Look at johnsy, jose like the big suber and people look up to him. You think years ago, people looking up the whole cogan, hmm yeah yeah. Can i learn o coan, i learned the other day is a revisionist of history. He came out the other day to say that andrew the giant died two weeks after he power bombed him. We first of all, i do think hall co could ever power bombed and doing the giant to? I think they fought in like wrestle to right, which is something like seven years died in three there you can. Okay, yeah i mean revision is my free yeah. That was like a couple of years. I mean you died. Ninety two. So with me a free in track, the one recoes, a massive race, yeah he's awful yeah. Here you go, he loves. I ate one o cocolamus too much fuck too much of you not see that video google, that that's that's some shit right, okay, so contract. So i is signing autographs for them. Remer arrives and says it says. Oh, i know i love kids yeah and he says: hey kid. Heads up throws a ball at him. Hit him directly in the face and knocks him out. Travis is blind explains why i wasn't very good with his hands now this news report- and i think i probably mentioned this during the escape from new york episode. In fact, i know for a fact. I did because i wouldn't miss the opportunity, the guys talking about denslow. He says in a periods of time finally ran out for the old cock sucker, which i say it at the time, a lot of the time when somebody dies, especially if someone i don't like a lot of the time, a bit of audio, for that sounds so word because he's obviously a dr yes, when, yes, he said i've, no idea. Why, though, and if you try and look up online, if there's like any reason for it you to do old, cock ocker, it's worrying olthat, one yeah les before you got the rights when they start and winning the game. Can you tell me which sporting event in one tuan, nine hundred n? No nine is the first modern day right after a sporting event, which two teams are involved with it. They go will give you a bit of a clue which two teams evolved in the first ever sports, right, wolverhampton, wanderers yeah and i etonians ridges, so tic all right, jo rof course. It fucking was like an a v in it. Yeah o nine scottish cut fine. Also tic and ranges went to two or draw instead of going to an extra time the crowd invaded the pitch and the match was called off with a hundred people injured. O ousel abuse was up three hundred percent that day, as always, with a fucking old, firm game. That's a give the bloody are. This restaurant is round up pies the other line that he says is theodore denslow d, h, n. Eighty two, his hair piece was twenty four is now he's got this video will, which is really weird. So what i discovered from this was densil was an actor like he was a like a western movie actor right because he's talking throughout about about- and these are the chaps that i wore on rooting- toton some o god, so a yeah yeah and he says- and here's the poncho that saved me from the rain in such and such it's all kind of going on in the background. While everyone else is having a conversation, because i've watched it twice already, i was kind o what the fuck is dense saying in this scene. I do nothing, no vet and baxter as sat together, he's commiserating her. We all know she's going to be given the team there's this there's. This niece gets given a plate commemorating the pope's visit to dodger stadium, and i was like surely that never happened. Apparently, the pope visit dodger stadium in one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven, our old friend, pope j, p, doss, of course, so films don't always like it as it's the largest crowd in stadium history, at sixty three thousand and at the at the time at least. Now it's a hundred and fifteen thousand three hundred and one for a preseason friendly between the red socks and the dodges, a fucking preseason friendly. He leaves the team to coop, but only if they win the denslow cup this year and then, if they don't, if that will get the team, if that, of course, is his geny mccarthy, as e semi disgusted now coopid like to talk to you alone and nobody leaves the room like he gives them like seconds. Nobody leaves the room they all carry on. You remember that time. You had crabs and the only thing that would help was that lotion k now yeah. I well find another thing for it: us rubbin it into his body and singing i'm too sexy, which i mean i would like to say, really dates the film, but that sounds like seven years old at this point: yeah yeah, i'm too sexty by rights at fred. I sorry, if you got mtesa fred, do no no i've as got a fuck this guy on tunie hundred n ninety one w record number one in australia, austria, new zealand, holland, canada, the us and second in the uk, probably behind joe donty, should up be your face because that's always like number one over other things. Isn't it oh yeah, yes, number one over van correct to o vienna. It is platinum in australia and the us the fucks buy in that, even in ninety one, a lot of old shit, physical media yeah. Well i mean you know: welwet existed at the time, so why not? Oh janet jenna gets season tickets for the kids, which seems like a really like. Surely he could just do that even if he wasn't dead, you know. Why would you have to give those in his will and then that's only for like this season. I don't know there was just something about that. Just didn't didn't really make a lot of sense to me anyway. Yeah it's a bit easy like a millionaire, yeah yeah, i could have given it a lot more nolte or just created a box for the kids yeah exactly back to talking to a vet. You know look this isn't necessarily over for you maybe come over at some point and we can lay some carpets. I haven't mentioned that it's robert vaughan, robert bawn, is another one of these actors who seems to be very gain for all this kind of stuff like he, like borg, nine he's in on it. Isn't he he under one hundred percent, is in on the fun that they says and later on, we'll get to another zuckers kind of i wo

There are few homecoming traditions bigger than a football game. Harvard and Yale have been playing an annual game since 1875. It's so steeped in our culture that American icon Damon Runyon incorporated Yale football into a story. This story, “Hold Em Yale” made it into a syndicated episode of The Damon Runyon Theatre airing out of NBC's KFI in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 27th, 1949. The show starred character actor John Brown as Broadway. Brown was born on April 4th, 1904 in Yorkshire, England. He emigrated to New York and began finding work on the stage. His first radio credit was in 1932. By 1949 he was an esteemed veteran. The Damon Runyon Theatre was one of Alan Ladd's Mayfair productions. Ladd was an admirer of the late-Runyon's long-running “Brighter Side” newspaper column. Damon Runyon had passed away on December 10th, 1946. He'd spun fascinating, tongue-in cheek tales of gamblers, actors, gangsters, and beautiful women. He gave his characters colorful names like “Harry the Horse Thief,” “Good Time Charlie,” and “The Lemon Drop Kid.” Ladd tapped John Brown to play Broadway. Brown was already playing a similar character on My Friend Irma. The transcribed Damon Runyon Theatre first aired over the independent station KSEL, in Lubbock, Texas. Because it was a syndicated show, it wasn't beholden to network lines. It aired over NBC's KFI Los Angeles beginning in January of 1949. The following June, it began airing over Mutual's WOR in New York. Supporting Brown were Hollywood's radio regulars like Herb Vigran, Jack Moyles, William Conrad, Gerald Mohr, and Anne Whitfield. Richard Sanville directed. Fifty-two shows were produced on records. Unfortunately for John Brown, just as television was coming in and his career was cresting, trouble was around the corner.

Gunther Weil -- Portals to Presence

Awakin Call

“A ‘Portal to Presence’ is exactly what it says,” writes Gunther Weil, “a simple doorway that points to the realm of Consciousness or Presence. It would be stretching the meaning of the word 'technique' or 'method' to apply it to this idea. One just walks through the portal as one becomes aware of its existence…. The portal opens, and Presence arises spontaneously.” Weil is a Harvard-trained psychologist, executive coach, and lifelong student of consciousness. His diverse and colorful life includes working as a music business executive and being instrumental in the production of Aerosmith’s first album; teaching at Brandeis University, recruited and mentored by psychologist Abraham Maslow; coaching international executives in leadership, wellness, organizational development, and conflict resolution in the private and public sectors; studying and teaching Tai Chi and becoming a recognized master teacher of Qigong; and perhaps most famously, pioneering the mass consciousness movement that began in the 1960s with Dr. Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert (a.k.a., Ram Dass), Ralph Metzner and others that popularized the field of psychedelic therapies.  As a young child, Weil and his parents fled the Holocaust “on one of the last boats leaving for America.” They settled in Nebraska, then Milwaukee, with psychology, philosophy, and classical music infusing their family culture. His father was an internationally regarded psychologist and pioneering researcher in Europe on synesthesia, the phenomenon of crossed senses, like smelling colors or seeing music. Education was of paramount importance; it was his father’s academic work that was their ticket to the US. Weil went on to study psychology and philosophy at Kenyon College, receiving a Fulbright scholarship to study in Norway. While there, he often visited Paris in his free time, inspired by the expat beatniks, literati, and jazz musicians who preceded the hippie generation. Upon returning to the States, he earned his doctorate in psychology at Harvard University. His assigned faculty advisor was a prominent researcher in the field of personality — Dr. Timothy Leary. Among their research studies was the Concord Prison Experiment, a randomized, controlled study designed to evaluate whether psilocybin mushrooms, combined with psychotherapy, could have a healing effect on young adults convicted of felonies in a maximum-security prison. In addition to improved recidivism rates (the degree of which has been debated), personality tests before and after these interventions showed positive changes.  In the 1970s, Weil worked in the music industry, as CEO at Intermedia Recording Corporation and senior vice president of Intermedia Systems Corporation, a publicly held multi-media production firm. Two of his numerous music projects were the 1973 debut album, “Aerosmith,” and the 1978 recording of the song “Jet Airliner,” by the Steve Miller Band, which hit both gold and platinum for sales exceeding two million. The bulk of Weil’s life work sits at the intersection of his formative influences of psychology, philosophy, and spirituality, bringing others to what he calls a Portal to Presence — a simple doorway that effortlessly opens to an expansive awareness.

Gunther Weil -- Portals to Presence

“A ‘Portal to Presence’ is exactly what it says,” writes Gunther Weil, “a simple doorway that points to the realm of Consciousness or Presence. It would be stretching the meaning of the word 'technique' or 'method' to apply it to this idea. One just walks through the portal as one becomes aware of its existence…. The portal opens, and Presence arises spontaneously.” Weil is a Harvard-trained psychologist, executive coach, and lifelong student of consciousness. His diverse and colorful life includes working as a music business executive and being instrumental in the production of Aerosmith’s first album; teaching at Brandeis University, recruited and mentored by psychologist Abraham Maslow; coaching international executives in leadership, wellness, organizational development, and conflict resolution in the private and public sectors; studying and teaching Tai Chi and becoming a recognized master teacher of Qigong; and perhaps most famously, pioneering the mass consciousness movement that began in the 1960s with Dr. Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert (a.k.a., Ram Dass), Ralph Metzner and others that popularized the field of psychedelic therapies.  As a young child, Weil and his parents fled the Holocaust “on one of the last boats leaving for America.” They settled in Nebraska, then Milwaukee, with psychology, philosophy, and classical music infusing their family culture. His father was an internationally regarded psychologist and pioneering researcher in Europe on synesthesia, the phenomenon of crossed senses, like smelling colors or seeing music. Education was of paramount importance; it was his father’s academic work that was their ticket to the US. Weil went on to study psychology and philosophy at Kenyon College, receiving a Fulbright scholarship to study in Norway. While there, he often visited Paris in his free time, inspired by the expat beatniks, literati, and jazz musicians who preceded the hippie generation. Upon returning to the States, he earned his doctorate in psychology at Harvard University. His assigned faculty advisor was a prominent researcher in the field of personality — Dr. Timothy Leary. Among their research studies was the Concord Prison Experiment, a randomized, controlled study designed to evaluate whether psilocybin mushrooms, combined with psychotherapy, could have a healing effect on young adults convicted of felonies in a maximum-security prison. In addition to improved recidivism rates (the degree of which has been debated), personality tests before and after these interventions showed positive changes.  In the 1970s, Weil worked in the music industry, as CEO at Intermedia Recording Corporation and senior vice president of Intermedia Systems Corporation, a publicly held multi-media production firm. Two of his numerous music projects were the 1973 debut album, “Aerosmith,” and the 1978 recording of the song “Jet Airliner,” by the Steve Miller Band, which hit both gold and platinum for sales exceeding two million. The bulk of Weil’s life work sits at the intersection of his formative influences of psychology, philosophy, and spirituality, bringing others to what he calls a Portal to Presence — a simple doorway that effortlessly opens to an expansive awareness. He has conducted personal growth seminars in leadership, creativity, emotional intelligence and wellness for executives and their organizations throughout the world. He is certified in the HeartMath Inner Quality Management Program, Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT), and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), and is a Master Values Mentor of the Minessence Group.

The Metaverse Is Big Brother in Disguise: Freedom Meted Out by Technological Tyrants   By John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead November 9, 2021 “The term metaverse, like the term meritocracy, was coined in a sci fi dystopia novel written as cautionary tale. Then techies took metaverse, and technocrats took meritocracy, and enthusiastically adopted what was meant to inspire horror.”—Antonio García Martínez Welcome to the Matrix (i.e. the metaverse), where reality is virtual, freedom is only as free as one's technological overlords allow, and artificial intelligence is slowly rendering humanity unnecessary, inferior and obsolete.   Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, sees this digital universe—the metaverse—as the next step in our evolutionary transformation from a human-driven society to a technological one.   Yet while Zuckerberg's vision for this digital frontier has been met with a certain degree of skepticism, the truth—as journalist Antonio García Martínez concludes—is that we're already living in the metaverse.   The metaverse is, in turn, a dystopian meritocracy, where freedom is a conditional construct based on one's worthiness and compliance.   In a meritocracy, rights are privileges, afforded to those who have earned them. There can be no tolerance for independence or individuality in a meritocracy, where political correctness is formalized, legalized and institutionalized. Likewise, there can be no true freedom when the ability to express oneself, move about, engage in commerce and function in society is predicated on the extent to which you're willing to “fit in.”   We are almost at that stage now. Consider that in our present virtue-signaling world where fascism disguises itself as tolerance, the only way to enjoy even a semblance of freedom is by opting to voluntarily censor yourself, comply, conform and march in lockstep with whatever prevailing views dominate.   Fail to do so—by daring to espouse “dangerous” ideas or support unpopular political movements—and you will find yourself shut out of commerce, employment, and society: Facebook will ban you, Twitter will shut you down, Instagram will de-platform you, and your employer will issue ultimatums that force you to choose between your so-called freedoms and economic survival.   This is exactly how Corporate America plans to groom us for a world in which “we the people” are unthinking, unresistant, slavishly obedient automatons in bondage to a Deep State policed by computer algorithms.   Science fiction has become fact.   Twenty-some years after the Wachowskis' iconic film, The Matrix, introduced us to a futuristic world in which humans exist in a computer-simulated non-reality powered by authoritarian machines—a world where the choice between existing in a denial-ridden virtual dream-state or facing up to the harsh, difficult realities of life comes down to a blue pill or a red pill—we stand at the precipice of a technologically-dominated matrix of our own making.   We are living the prequel to The Matrix with each passing day, falling further under the spell of technologically-driven virtual communities, virtual realities and virtual conveniences managed by artificially intelligent machines that are on a fast track to replacing human beings and eventually dominating every aspect of our lives.   In The Matrix, computer programmer Thomas Anderson a.k.a. hacker Neo is wakened from a virtual slumber by Morpheus, a freedom fighter seeking to liberate humanity from a lifelong hibernation state imposed by hyper-advanced artificial intelligence machines that rely on humans as an organic power source. With their minds plugged into a perfectly crafted virtual reality, few humans ever realize they are living in an artificial dream world.   Neo is given a choice: to take the red pill, wake up and join the resistance, or take the blue pill, remain asleep and serve as fodder for the powers-that-be.   Most people opt for the blue pill.   In our case, the blue pill—a one-way ticket to a life sentence in an electronic concentration camp—has been honey-coated to hide the bitter aftertaste, sold to us in the name of expediency and delivered by way of blazingly fast Internet, cell phone signals that never drop a call, thermostats that keep us at the perfect temperature without our having to raise a finger, and entertainment that can be simultaneously streamed to our TVs, tablets and cell phones.   Yet we are not merely in thrall with these technologies that were intended to make our lives easier. We have become enslaved by them.   Look around you. Everywhere you turn, people are so addicted to their internet-connected screen devices—smart phones, tablets, computers, televisions—that they can go for hours at a time submerged in a virtual world where human interaction is filtered through the medium of technology.   This is not freedom. This is not even progress.   This is technological tyranny and iron-fisted control delivered by way of the surveillance state, corporate giants such as Google and Facebook, and government spy agencies such as the National Security Agency.   So consumed are we with availing ourselves of all the latest technologies that we have spared barely a thought for the ramifications of our heedless, headlong stumble towards a world in which our abject reliance on internet-connected gadgets and gizmos is grooming us for a future in which freedom is an illusion.   Yet it's not just freedom that hangs in the balance. Humanity itself is on the line.   If ever Americans find themselves in bondage to technological tyrants, we will have only ourselves to blame for having forged the chains through our own lassitude, laziness and abject reliance on internet-connected gadgets and gizmos that render us wholly irrelevant.   Indeed, we're fast approaching Philip K. Dick's vision of the future as depicted in the film Minority Report. There, police agencies apprehend criminals before they can commit a crime, driverless cars populate the highways, and a person's biometrics are constantly scanned and used to track their movements, target them for advertising, and keep them under perpetual surveillance. Cue the dawning of the Age of the Internet of Things (IoT), in which internet-connected “things” monitor your home, your health and your habits in order to keep your pantry stocked, your utilities regulated and your life under control and relatively worry-free.   The key word here, however, is control.   In the not-too-distant future, “just about every device you have—and even products like chairs, that you don't normally expect to see technology in—will be connected and talking to each other.”   By the end of 2018, “there were an estimated 22 billion internet of things connected devices in use around the world… Forecasts suggest that by 2030 around 50 billion of these IoT devices will be in use around the world, creating a massive web of interconnected devices spanning everything from smartphones to kitchen appliances.”   As the technologies powering these devices have become increasingly sophisticated, they have also become increasingly widespread, encompassing everything from toothbrushes and lightbulbs to cars, smart meters and medical equipment.   It is estimated that 127 new IoT devices are connected to the web every second.   This “connected” industry has become the next big societal transformation, right up there with the Industrial Revolution, a watershed moment in technology and culture.   Between driverless cars that completely lacking a steering wheel, accelerator, or brake pedal, and smart pills embedded with computer chips, sensors, cameras and robots, we are poised to outpace the imaginations of science fiction writers such as Philip K. Dick and Isaac Asimov. (By the way, there is no such thing as a driverless car. Someone or something will be driving, but it won't be you.)   These Internet-connected techno gadgets include smart light bulbs that discourage burglars by making your house look occupied, smart thermostatsthat regulate the temperature of your home based on your activities, and smart doorbells that let you see who is at your front door without leaving the comfort of your couch.   Nest, Google's suite of smart home products, has been at the forefront of the “connected” industry, with such technologically savvy conveniences as a smart lock that tells your thermostat who is home, what temperatures they like, and when your home is unoccupied; a home phone service system that interacts with your connected devices to “learn when you come and go” and alert you if your kids don't come home; and a sleep system that will monitor when you fall asleep, when you wake up, and keep the house noises and temperature in a sleep-conducive state.   The aim of these internet-connected devices, as Nest proclaims, is to make “your house a more thoughtful and conscious home.” For example, your car can signal ahead that you're on your way home, while Hue lights can flash on and off to get your attention if Nest Protect senses something's wrong. Your coffeemaker, relying on data from fitness and sleep sensors, will brew a stronger pot of coffee for you if you've had a restless night.   Yet given the speed and trajectory at which these technologies are developing, it won't be long before these devices are operating entirely independent of their human creators, which poses a whole new set of worries. As technology expert Nicholas Carr notes, “As soon as you allow robots, or software programs, to act freely in the world, they're going to run up against ethically fraught situations and face hard choices that can't be resolved through statistical models. That will be true of self-driving cars, self-flying drones, and battlefield robots, just as it's already true, on a lesser scale, with automated vacuum cleaners and lawnmowers.”   For instance, just as the robotic vacuum, Roomba, “makes no distinction between a dust bunny and an insect,” weaponized drones will be incapable of distinguishing between a fleeing criminal and someone merely jogging down a street. For that matter, how do you defend yourself against a robotic cop—such as the Atlas android being developed by the Pentagon—that has been programmed to respond to any perceived threat with violence?   Moreover, it's not just our homes and personal devices that are being reordered and reimagined in this connected age: it's our workplaces, our health systems, our government, our bodies and our innermost thoughts that are being plugged into a matrix over which we have no real control.   It is expected that by 2030, we will all experience The Internet of Senses (IoS), enabled by Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), 5G, and automation. The Internet of Senses relies on connected technology interacting with our senses of sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch by way of the brain as the user interface. As journalist Susan Fourtane explains: Many predict that by 2030, the lines between thinking and doing will blur. Fifty-nine percent of consumers believe that we will be able to see map routes on VR glasses by simply thinking of a destination… By 2030, technology is set to respond to our thoughts, and even share them with others… Using the brain as an interface could mean the end of keyboards, mice, game controllers, and ultimately user interfaces for any digital device. The user needs to only think about the commands, and they will just happen. Smartphones could even function without touch screens. In other words, the IoS will rely on technology being able to access and act on your thoughts.   Fourtane outlines several trends related to the IoS that are expected to become a reality by 2030: 1: Thoughts become action: using the brain as the interface, for example, users will be able to see map routes on VR glasses by simply thinking of a destination.   2: Sounds will become an extension of the devised virtual reality: users could mimic anyone's voice realistically enough to fool even family members.   3: Real food will become secondary to imagined tastes. A sensory device for your mouth could digitally enhance anything you eat, so that any food can taste like your favorite treat.   4: Smells will become a projection of this virtual reality so that virtual visits, to forests or the countryside for instance, would include experiencing all the natural smells of those places.   5: Total touch: Smartphones with screens will convey the shape and texture of the digital icons and buttons they are pressing.   6: Merged reality: VR game worlds will become indistinguishable from physical reality by 2030. This is the metaverse, wrapped up in the siren-song of convenience and sold to us as the secret to success, entertainment and happiness.   It's a false promise, a wicked trap to snare us, with a single objective: total control.   George Orwell understood this.   Orwell's masterpiece, 1984, portrays a global society of total control in which people are not allowed to have thoughts that in any way disagree with the corporate state. There is no personal freedom, and advanced technology has become the driving force behind a surveillance-driven society. Snitches and cameras are everywhere. And people are subject to the Thought Police, who deal with anyone guilty of thought crimes. The government, or “Party,” is headed by Big Brother, who appears on posters everywhere with the words: “Big Brother is watching you.”

The Storm Skiing Podcast is sponsored by Mountain Gazette - Listen to the podcast for discount codes on subscriptions and merch.WhoNick Fredericks, President, CEO, and part-owner of Shawnee Mountain, PennsylvaniaRecorded onNovember 9, 2021Why I interviewed himBecause little Shawnee, hanging off the edge of the temperamental Poconos, is feisty enough to stand among its larger neighbors and welcoming enough that beginners swarm the place. Fifty-five percent of Shawnee’s skiers rented gear last season. That’s an enormous stat, and an incredible testament to what Shawnee is: one of the best top-to-bottom learning centers in the region, if not the entire country. The greens here are not the zigzagging catwalks cutting across double-blacks or 50-vertical-foot meadows tucked behind the baselodge (thought they have those too). They’re real trails, running from the summit back to the base, a nice 700 feet of vertical that feels like forever.From a ski-history point of view, Shawnee is a compelling story. Pennsylvania kept building ski areas long after the rest of the Northeast abandoned the exercise, and Shawnee is relatively new, coming online in 1975. It takes a certain swashbuckling energy and attitude to cut a ski area out of the raw earth, and most of the folks who founded our great ski areas are long gone. While Fredericks did not found Shawnee from an ownership point of view, he was there from day one, cutting trees to clear the trails and pounding nails to raise the summit lodge. That means he’s a treasure chest of institutional knowledge, a one-man encyclopedia devoted to all things Shawnee. He was there when the first skiers puttered their way to the top of the hill in their rear-wheel drive 1970s gashogs, and he was there when the resort pulled one of the great switcheroos in Pennsylvania skiing history, dropping the parking lots from the top of the hill to the bottom and reorienting the whole resort experience. He was there through the bankruptcies and the larger economic busts, the acquisition of Shawnee Peak in Maine and the dissolution of that ownership group, bank takeovers and uncertainty, until he finally got the keys to the place. It’s an awesome story, and I wanted to hear it from the man who’d lived it.What we talked aboutWhy Shawnee was designed as an upside-down ski area; the rustic Poconos of the 1970s; the resort’s early Wild West days; reminiscing on New York’s now-defunct Dutchess Ski Area; the longevity of Shawnee employees; why the ski area flipped from an upside-down layout to a lodge-at-the-bottom arrangement and how much time and effort it took to do that; what the ski area did with the facilities at the top of the mountain; Shawnee’s wild access road; the mountain’s year-by-year evolution into a larger ski area; the real-estate crash that drove the ski area into bank ownership; how Nick and his partners finally purchased the ski area in the mid-90s and who they had to outbid to buy it; the wild beavers who ruled Shawnee’s bottom; what happened to the old stone farm walls threaded throughout the base of Shawnee; the history of the ski area’s entry bridge; why the ski area’s setup works so well to foil would-be ski thieves; why Shawnee bought Pleasant Mountain, Maine, and changed the name to Shawnee Peak; how Nick helped drive the Maine ski area from 25,000 skier visits to 90,000 in one season; what eventually separated the mountains; thoughts on Boyne Resorts buying Shawnee; trail expansion opportunities; Shawnee’s master plan and how it will transform the resort, especially its bedbase; why the ski area eschews expert terrain; the mountain’s sophisticated snowmaking system and modern grooming fleet; how the ski area rethought its food service options; rethinking employee housing; possible new summer operations; the massive percentage of Shawnee skiers that rent gear; whether the mountain would ever bring back a lift along Country Club to allow park skiers to lap that section; Shawnee’s terrific natural glades; why the ski area doesn’t groom or open select chunks of the mountain after large snowfalls; Shawnee’s incredible beginner terrain; potential future lift improvements, including the possible fate of the double-double and F lift; how staffing shortages affected Shawnee last season; the logic of the affordable season pass; the positive impact of Covid on business; why the ski area joined the Indy Pass and why Shawnee will have blackouts on the pass for the first time this season; and why Shawnee started forging reciprocal pass partnerships with ski areas across the country.Why I thought that now was a good time for this interviewBecause Shawnee is an increasingly interesting player in the evolving pass wars that have displaced skiing’s tired business model of expensive single-mountain season passes. It was an early member of the Indy Pass. This season, Shawnee, for the first time, struck reciprocal pass partnerships with Seven Springs/Laurel/Hidden Valley, on the west side of the state; Mont du Lac, Wisconsin; and the king of the reciprocal lift ticket, Ski Cooper, Colorado. With Vail now in control of Jack Frost and Big Boulder, just down the road, and Shawnee’s two biggest competitors, Blue Mountain and Camelback, now under common ownership and likely to join their passes (and eventually join the Ikon Pass), Shawnee will need to keep getting creative. Turns out they have big plans – Fredericks’ commitment to constant improvement is reflected in Shawnee’s steady evolution over the decades, and he makes it clear in this interview that the mountain is nowhere near a finished product.Questions I wish I’d askedWhen Fredericks said Shawnee would consider turning Lift C – the high-speed quad – so that it could access Bushkill, I was a little confused as to where that lift would land. I followed up with Shawnee, and here’s what they said:“The one thought would be to remove F lift completely and move it so that when you got off the high-speed quad you could then take that lift across the summit (horizontally if you would) over to Bushkill, where F lift used to unload. We would be able to basically cut that lift in half.”So I’m reading that as saying that the quad would still terminate where it does now. Again, all this is just talk at the moment, but keep an eye out for the ski area’s master plan.Why you should ski ShawneeHave kids? Go there. Have an Indy Pass? Go. Want a low-key park to sharpen up your game? Go. Live in NYC? Go – it’s only 90 minutes away. Check your expectations: this is Pennsylvania skiing – there will be crowds, there will be a 50:1 beginner-to-expert ratio, there will be lift-loading shenanigans. It’s all part of the experience. Like most Pennsylvania ski areas, the snowmaking is good and consistent, the lifts are plentiful, and the trail network is cut in such a way as to make the mountain ski much larger than it is. Shawnee is easy to get to and easy to like. Plus, walking across the pond on the wooden footbridge is one of the great resort entrances in Northeast skiing. If you talk the game about supporting family-owned ski areas, this is a great place to turn your words into something tangible.Additional resourcesLift Blog’s inventory of Shawnee chairliftsHistoric Shawnee trailmaps – sadly, I can’t find one with the parking lots on top.

At a glance, the border between the United States and Canada would seem to be at the friendlier end of the international boundary spectrum. But even though the US-Canada border is now pretty tame, when two countries touch each other over a stretch of 5500 miles, it can result in some surprisingly weird disputes, misunderstandings,  geographical quirks and ...really good stories. Fifty-Four Forty or Fight
