Draconis Cauda “In addition to all this, this dragon's tail, [I mean] the Mass, has begotten a numerous vermin-brood of manifold idolatries.” — SA 2:11 “In our churches Mass is celebrated every Sunday and on other festivals when the sacrament is offered to those who wish for it after they have been examined and absolved. We keep traditional liturgical forms, such as the order of the lessons, prayers, vestments, etc.” — AP 24:1 The Tail of the Dragon is a popular stretch of road for tourists near the Tennessee-North Carolina border. It boasts 318 curves in 11 miles. It is especially iconic among motorcyclists. I ride with a good group of guys who get together a couple times a year. For the past two years, the Tail of the Dragon didn't work out for me because of weather issues - though one brave soul from our band of brothers rode it in the rain this year. Luther used the term (Drachenschwanz, draconis cauda) in reference to “the Mass” in the Smalcald Articles in our Book of Concord. As anyone who has ever used language in his life knows, context matters in determining the meaning of a word. There is a huge difference between a road in Tennessee and a set of papal liturgical prayers rejected by 16th century reformers. Somehow, confessional Lutheran motorcyclists manage to keep these terms straight. A similar contextual matter is the word “catholic.” It can be used in modern English as shorthand to refer to the papal church, but it is also used in the ecumenical creeds to mean the very opposite of a specific denomination. We LCMS Lutherans compromise by translating “catholic” from the Apostles and Nicene Creeds as “Christian” (following the pre-Luther German translation), while retaining the word “catholic” in the Athanasian Creed (see LSB 319-320). The hue and cry against using “catholic” in our creeds as “confusing” is drowned out by millions of Methodists and Presbyterians and Anglicans who aren't confused at all. Maybe Lutherans are not as smart as they are. Maybe we are just more easily confused. Although we somehow aren't confused by our retention of the sign of the cross. But that's another story for another day. At any rate, theology is an -ology, a realm of the Logos, of words and logic. And theology, like other intellectual endeavors, uses words in multiple contexts. There are often “broad” and “narrow” uses of specific terminology. Admittedly, this takes a certain degree of sophistication and literacy, one that may well be at odds with our current generational use of language as captured by the movie Idiocracy: But the English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valley girl, inner city slang, and various grunts. And this brings me to my point. A pastor, who was arguing for “contemporary worship,” scolded me for using the word “Mass” (as in the quote from Article 24 above that describes authentic Lutheran worship to mean the traditional Mass with “traditional liturgical forms” and the traditional “lessons, prayers, vestments, etc.” ). You know, the kind of things that his ilk thinks that should be ”abolished” instead of “retained” and “celebrated with the highest reverence.” He said: Luther called the Mass the tail of Satan [sic], so maybe stop using that word, kk? Kk? When middle-aged people try to sound youthful and hip, it reminds me of the powerful and pathetic scene from Sunset Boulevard when Gloria Swanson's character, desperately clinging to her lost youth, utters the iconic line: “All right, Mr. DeMille. I'm ready for my close-up.” For some reason, a lot of Peter Pan pastors try to delude themselves into thinking they are still the 20-something vicar taking a group of high schoolers mini-golfing and trying to fit in with the kiddos. Maybe that's part of our Idiocracy degradation of language. But at any rate, the word Mass is not only the title of Article 24 in both the Augsburg Confession and the Apology - describing the Lutheran Divine Service (the latter being the longest and most detailed treatment of worship in the Book of Concord), it is by far the single most common word used to describe our services of the Lord's Supper in our confessions. Moreover, Dr. Luther, whose remark about the tail of the dragon is part of our Book of Concord, published his first two evangelical revisions of the liturgy using the word Mass (in Latin in 1523 and in German in 1526). In just the Augsburg Confession, the liturgy (not the “tail of the dragon” that is, the canon of the Mass) is called “Mass” about 31 times (depending on whether one is counting it in the Latin or the German as rendered into English). The Apology has 73 such uses. Math majors will note that this exceeds 100 such uses. Article 2 of the Smalcald Articles frequently refers to the Mass, but right off the bat explicitly qualifies the context as “The Mass of the papacy” - to distinguish this context from the evangelical Mass. Apology 27 speaks of the “abuses of the Mass” - which we reject, not the Mass itself. Abusus not tollit usum, as the kids say. If you've ever been around a random group of pastors, you'll note that it really is a Tale of Two Synods. We speak two different languages. And this is no surprise. For what we imbibe spiritually and intellectually eventually makes it way out of our mouths linguistically. If we are immersed in the Bible, the Confessions, and the hymnody of the Church, we will naturally speak that way - in the same way that guys who ride motorcycles have certain turns of phrase that we pick up along the way. But if our Bibles and Books of Concord are collecting cobwebs, if the Psalms do not shape our daily piety of prayer and worship, if we are listening to neo-Evangelical pop music stations, reading neo-Evangelical books about Christianity, and adopting neo-Evangelical worship styles and gestures (in which raised hands replaces the sign of the cross), it should shock nobody that we will start talking, acting, worshiping, and believing like neo-Evangelicals. This is the reason that a congregation that retains the Mass is much more likely to have the sacrament at every Sunday service, and those with the praise band are more likely to celebrate it infrequently. This is why liturgical parishes and pastors are much more likely to offer and incorporate private confession and absolution into their Christian life and piety than a congregation that is more interested in cupholders and casual attire. This is also why you are more likely to find solid cruciform preaching in liturgical parishes instead of fluff in non-liturgical parishes. As a convert to Lutheranism, I'm utterly appalled by how many cradle-Lutherans, laity and clergy alike, are so quick to barter away their birthright for a bowl of slop. Our Lord offers us meat, while many of our pastors grow pudgy and weak stuffing themselves on Twinkies. The first step toward becoming authentically Lutheran again is to once more immerse ourselves in the Bible and Confessions, to let the Word of God shape our prayers and worship, and to confess, that is, to repeat the language of the inspired Scriptures and its correct exposition bequeathed to us by the blood of the martyrs. In the 16th century, the dragon's tail appeared among us in the form of the canon of the Mass, which led our people away from the grace of Christ to focus on themselves. Today, the dragon's tail comes among us yet again in the form of a blend of self-centered entertainment and emotion, replacing the Mass, which leads our people away from the grace of Christ to yet again focus on themselves. Let us get back to where this language not only describes us, but shapes our piety: Falsely are our churches accused of abolishing the Mass; for the Mass is retained among us, and celebrated with the highest reverence. Nearly all the usual ceremonies are also preserved, save that the parts sung in Latin are interspersed here and there with German hymns, which have been added to teach the people. For ceremonies are needed to this end alone that the unlearned be taught [what they need to know of Christ]. And not only has Paul commanded to use in the church a language understood by the people but it has also been so ordained by man's law. The people are accustomed to partake of the Sacrament together, if any be fit for it, and this also increases the reverence and devotion of public worship. For none are admitted except they be first examined. The people are also advised concerning the dignity and use of the Sacrament, how great consolation it brings anxious consciences, that they may learn to believe God, and to expect and ask of Him all that is good. [In this connection they are also instructed regarding other and false teachings on the Sacrament.] This worship pleases God; such use of the Sacrament nourishes true devotion toward God. It does not, therefore, appear that the Mass is more devoutly celebrated among our adversaries than among us. ~ AC 24:1-9 Amen.

Dana and Tom are back to discuss another Billy Wilder classic, Sunset Boulevard, starring William Holden and Gloria Swanson. Plot Summary: Joe Gillis (William Holden), a down-on-his luck screenplay writer, cannot pay his bills and fails to sell an idea for a script. Fleeing creditors, Joe ends up at a mansion, soon recognizing the owner as a forgotten silent film star, Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). Learning that Joe is a writer, Norma soon has Joe working for her, and he moves into Norma's mansion at her insistence. Aided by her butler Max (Erich von Stroheim), Joe gradually accepts his dependent situation as Norma lavishes attention on Joe and buys him expensive things. However, after Joe starts to work on a screenplay with Betty Schaefer (Nancy Olson), Norma discovers a manuscript with their names on it, and she phones Betty insinuating that Joe is not the man he seems.

We're kicking off our "Great Old Broads" series with the fabulously overdressed silent screen star Gloria Swanson, who set out to become a definitive figure of excess in the highly excessive Hollywood of the 1910s and 1920s. You know her as Norma Desmond, the unforgettably mad has-been star determined on making a comeback ("I hate that word! It's 'return'!") in the great 1950 film Sunset Boulevard. Though she played the part so magnificently, even people who knew her personally became convinced Gloria must be Norma in real life, Swanson actually stayed very sane and very busy for decades after the Talkies revolutionized the film industry, working steadily in film, television, radio, and theater. But Gloria agreed with Norma in one major way--a star ought to look like a star!

Musician, playwright, and performer John Epperson, (lypsinka.com)(IG:@lypsinka)(TW:@lypsinka) who is better known as his lip-synching female alter-ego Lypsinka, was born April 24, 1955, in Hazlehurst, Mississippi. In 1978, after training in classical piano from a young age and attending Belhaven University (at that time Belhaven College) in Jackson, Epperson moved to New York City, where he took a job playing piano for the American Ballet Theatre and began performing in drag. Epperson’s character Lypsinka is a renowned drag artist who lip-syncs to the songs and dialogue of iconic screen sirens and to more obscure audio clips (such as a makeup application recording from the 1950s). Epperson has been praised for the pastiches of dialogue he creates, as Lypsinka’s shows bring new meaning to the lines she ventriloquizes through juxtaposition and gender reversal. One critic estimated that thousands of audio pieces are culled together for each Lypsinka show, calling them “expressionistic and hallucinatory one-act audio wonders.” By 1991 Epperson was able to pursue a career as Lypsinka full time, taking her shows around the country and receiving glowing reviews even from serious theater critics. Lypsinka’s blend of drag humor and performance art—in addition to her skill as a comedian—resulted in unique shows that appeal to fans of drag and comedy, as well as theater and performance art.   Lypsinka’s takes on Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, and Lauren Bacall have earned praise from critics and a fervent fan base. Her performances are complex and schizophrenic as she careens between emotional extremes cued by intense lighting changes and the sound of a ringing telephone. In shows like “As I Lay Lip-Syncing” and “The Passion of the Crawford,” Epperson creates a new narrative out of sound clips. Some of these pieces of audio are meant to be recognized by the audience, and some of them are not. Part of Lypsinka’s appeal is her ability to bring elements of drag humor and camp to her performances without disrespecting the figures she emulates—often the screen queens of Old Hollywood. Epperson refuses to bring sexist humor into Lypsinka’s shows, saying, “It’s so easy to do misogynistic drag humor” but he “deliberately trie[s] to avoid that.”   Epperson also works in theater and film outside of performing as Lypsinka, and he has played male characters onstage and in film. He has appeared in several feature films, including Black Swan and Kinsey. He referenced his roots in his update of Euripides’ Greek tragedy Medea, which he adapted to a Jackson, Mississippi, setting. In Epperson’s campy Southern Gothic version, titled My Deah, the protagonist who kills her children to get revenge on her husband. The New York Times wrote, “Although Lypsinka herself is absent from the stage in My Deah, Mr. Epperson brings the same deconstructive and reconstructive skills he uses to showcase that grande dame to his Mad magazine rewrite of Euripides. [H]e has found clever Deep South analogues for the workings of fate that ruthlessly hem in our desperate heroine.”   While Epperson has described growing up in small-town Mississippi as stifling, saying that he “felt like an alien” among his family and experienced bullying from his peers, Mississippi’s culture and artists have clearly influenced some of his work, from My Deah to the title for “As I Lay Lip-Syncing.” A gay bar in Jackson, Mississippi, was the first place Epperson remembers seeing drag queens perform lip-syncing routines, an experience that deeply inspired him although he did not begin performing in drag until he moved to New York years later.   Lypsinka is now considered a foremother of today’s most popular drag artists.

Musician, playwright, and performer John Epperson, (lypsinka.com)(IG:@lypsinka)(TW:@lypsinka) who is better known as his lip-synching drag queen alter-ego Lypsinka, was born April 24, 1955, in Hazelhurst, Mississippi. In 1978, after training in classical piano from a young age and attending Belhaven University in Jackson, Epperson moved to New York City, where he took a job playing piano for the American Ballet Theater and began performing in drag. Epperson’s character Lypsinka is a renowned drag artist who lip-syncs to the songs and dialogue of iconic screen sirens and to more obscure audio clips (such as a makeup commercial from the 1950s). Epperson has been praised for the pastiches of dialogue he creates as Lypsinka’s shows bring new meaning to the lines she ventriloquizes through juxtaposition and gender reversal. One critic estimated that thousands of audio pieces are culled together for each Lypsinka show, calling them “expressionistic and hallucinatory one-act audio wonders.” By 1991 Epperson was able to pursue a career as Lypsinka full time, taking her shows around the country and receiving glowing reviews even from serious theater critics.

Also featuring William Holden as screenwriter Joe Gillis, the down-on-his-luck young man who stumbles into Norma’s dream of a return to stardom, this self-referential Hollywood fable continues to influence pop culture more than 70 years after its release.Is Norma Desmond’s middle-aged melodrama relatable? Have the pictures really gotten small? If your band is hired to play a private New Year’s Eve party, how long are you obligated to perform? What color is appropriate for a monkey’s coffin lining? Which is worse, being a newspaper reporter in Ohio or being a faded movie star’s boy toy in Hollywood?

TELEPATHY,  as  you  know,  is  the  ability  of  one  mind  to  communicate  with   the  mind  of  another  without  the   aid   of  any physical  media.   Just  how   this  communication  takes   place, what  modus-operandi  or  energies  are   involved,   no  one  yet knows.  In  his   book   Thoughts   Through   Space   Sherman  conjectured  that the  answer  might  be  contained  in  the  electrical  activity  of mind.  This  implied  the  existence  of  an  electromagnetic  field, operated  in  some  manner  by  the  controlling  entity,   which originated   as  well   as  received  electrically  charged  forms   or impulses. Science  has  disclosed,  through  the  electroencephalograph,that  the  electrical  currents  in  the  brain  can  be  recorded  and measured.  It  has  been  observed  that  mental  and  emotional disturbances  set  up  electrical  storms  in  the  brain,  reflective of  the  excitation  in  consciousness.  I  had  noted,  as  reported,that  intensity  of  feeling  seemed  to  generate  more  energy  and cause  thoughts  to  be  more  strongly  projected. Cerebral currents, however, are extremely weak. There does not  seem  to  be  enough  electrical  energy  to  account  for  the reception  of  thoughts  at  a  great  distance,  or  even,  for  that matter,  in  the  next  room. Some  years  ago  I  ventured  the  suggestion  that  there  might be  a  form  of  mental  energy,  functioning  in  and  through  a beyond-space-and-time  mental  ether,  which  could  not  be  detected  by  instrument. Harold Morrow Sherman (1898-1987) was world renowned in the field of psychic research, and conducted experiments with such prominent persons as well-known Arctic explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins, ESP pioneer Dr. J.B. Rhine of Duke University, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, and many others. Apart from his research into mental telepathy and the mysteries of the mind, Sherman's lifelong writing career encompassed best-selling books on a variety of subjects ranging from sports stories for boys to books on self-help and the afterlife. His first great classic was Your Key to Happiness, published in 1935 and reprinted many times since. He also wrote plays, several of which were produced on Broadway, and wrote screenplays for two Hollywood films, Are We Civilized? (1934) and The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944). For decades Sherman was a popular New Thought lecturer, and in later years hosted annual ESP workshops that drew such guests as Uri Geller, Arthur Ford, Gloria Swanson and many other big names. BUY A COPY OF MY BOOKhttps://www.amazon.com/Reality-Revolution-Mind-Blowing-Movement-Hack/dp/154450618X/ Listen my book on audible https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Reality-Revolution-Audiobook/B087LV1R5V Prosperity Consciousness - https://youtu.be/kkMvngNKeDQ How to use breathing to change your life https://youtu.be/m4y71lnyV7A The Health Revolution – Becoming  Healthier through the power of your mind https://youtu.be/3UjSt3V8xso The Love Revolution: Using the Law of Attraction to find love… and your soulmate https://youtu.be/3-mhAfe2aO8 Finding Your Purpose - https://youtu.be/XJtZtmlWq9w Transform your health - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo9Ef3Qy_G9aduDHbkPbpKOb All my guided meditations in one place https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo_BfNnb5vLcwouInskcEhqL All my short meditations (you have 10 minutes) - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo-Mc0SiXK8Ef0opJeahwgfM All my episodes about parallel realities - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo-1-dStwX7huyhcxpJPMrWi Music By Mettaversealways nowlight catcherslight holdersprimordial sound of ominto the omniversethe journey inwardregenerative spiritual resetdeeply divine meditationinner worldsdeep relaxation ➤ Listen on Soundcloud: http://bit.ly/2KjGlLI➤ Follow them on Instagram: http://bit.ly/2JW8BU2➤ Join them on Facebook: http://bit.ly/2G1j7G6➤ Subscribe to their channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyvjffON2NoUvX5q_TgvVkw All My Neville Goddard Videos In One Playlist - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo8kBZsJpp3xvkRwhbXuhg0M All my videos about Dr. Joseph Murphy - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKv1KCSKwOo_OtBhXg2s85UuZBT-OihF_ For coaching – https://www.advancedsuccessinstitute.com For all episodes of the Reality Revolution – https://www.therealityrevolution.com Join our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/523814491927119 Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/The-Reality-Revolution-Podcast-Hosted-By-Brian-Scott-102555575116999 Subscribe to my Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOgXHr5S3oF0qetPfqxJfSw Contact us at media@advancedsuccessinsitute.com#telepathy #intuition #instinct #decisions #totalhumanoptimization

Some sticky gooey fun (turpentine not included) for you on this episode of #BTLRadioShow thanks to writer/director CORY WEXLER GRANT talking PAINTER, while TAR is the watchword of the day for writer/director AARON WOLF. Take a listen to writer/director CORY WEXLER GRANT who joins us live talking about his debut feature directorial, the exquisitely haunting (and twisted) PAINTER. A portrait of obsession and jealousy, every frame, every word, every look, every movement, is painted with cinematic deliberateness, drawing one ever deeper into this tale of a wealthy matronly patron and a young talented painter who has become the object of her desire on multiple levels. Cory and I dig deep into the construction of this hypnotic work, starting with the story of wealthy matron Joanne who is obsessed with Aldis, a young painter who is obsessed with the success of rival artist Ryan West. Former elementary schoolmates, Ryan bullied Aldis back in the day, something that Aldis has never gotten over and is obsessed with getting even or besting Ryan. But once Cory has his story and characters, casting became king and we talk about his casting of Casey Deidrick, Eric Ladin, and Betsy Randle as Ryan, Aldis, and Joanne, respectively. Dynamic casting choices and in the case of Betsy Randle, a casting outside of the box. Known best for her role as Amy Matthews on Boy Meets Girl, Betsy is anything but that here; she is chameleonic, hypnotic as Joanne, channeling a chilling cross between Gloria Swanson and Shirley MacLaine for an award-worthy performance. And of course, we explore Cory's thoughts and decisions with regard to the cinematic precision of PAINTER, both visually and emotionally, which we see and feel unfold through cinematography, production design, and a score to send shivers up and down your spine with some very key Bernard Herrmann moments. But before we get to Cory and PAINTER, we get a little dirty with "tar" and our prerecorded exclusive interview with writer/director/actor AARON WOLF talking his latest film, the thriller TAR. An original premise that stems from the idea of "what if" and the famed La Brea Tar Pits; what if something has survived in the tar or under the tar for the past 40,000 or more years and is now rearing its sticky self amidst all of the underground construction on Wilshire Boulevard? Interesting idea and Aaron brings it to life on screen. Listen as we discuss the script, the casting – including Aaron himself in the lead role, the importance and authenticity that Graham Greene brings to the film, cinematography, production design, creature creation, the making of and use of tar, Conor Jones' score, and the all-important editing and creature reveal. Aaron is nothing if not energetic and passionate about the craft of filmmaking and art of storytelling, and you hear that with every word he says. http://behindthelensonline.net http://eliasentertainmentnetwork.com

“We didn’t need dialogue.  We had faces!” We watched Sunset Blvd (1950) with the very funny Dennis Griffin and we’re ready for our close-up!  This Uber-meta film about the film industry gave the world one of the most glamorous, tragic and straight up bananas performances of the 20th Century in Gloria Swanson’s portrayal of Norma Desmond.  William Holden is also giving us major beef-cake daddy vibes as Joe Gillis, the screenwriter turned gigolo who finds himself on the business end of Norma’s amorous affections. If you’re anything like us, after watching this movie you’ll be perfecting your Norma Desmond impression while manufacturing a turban out of a tea towel and prancing around the house in your most glamorous caftan. Remember Norma’s words well kids... “No one ever leaves a star.  That’s what makes one a star.” Thanks for listening and don't forget to subscribe, rate and review us on iTunes! www.patreon.com/moviesthatmadeusgay Facebook/Instagram: @moviesthatmadeusgay Twitter: @MTMUGPod Scott Youngbauer: Twitter @oscarscott / Instagram @scottyoungballer Peter Lozano: Twitter/Instagram @peterlasagna

Comemorando 70 anos de seu lançamento, "Crepúsculo dos Deuses" é vencedor de três estatuetas do Oscar: Melhor Roteiro e Argumento, Melhor Direção de Arte e Melhor Trilha Sonora, tendo sido indicado a Melhor Filme, Direção, Fotografia, Montagem, Ator, Atriz, Ator Coadjuvante e Atriz Coadjuvante.

Pinup photos usually feature young barely dressed women, at least that's what's popularized by Sports Illustrated but suppose I told you they don't have to be.  That you could pose in period dress and look like a glamorous turn of the century, Evelyn Nesbit or like a silver screen star ala Gloria Swanson. Pick a period. Choose clothing and have your make-up done in the style of the era. Smoky eyes of the silent movies or the red lips of the 1950s.  It's up to you. My guest specializes in a photographic method that encourages women to embrace their glamorous side regardless of age.   Krzystyna Caldarone knows what she's doing. A student of classic pinups, she admires photographers such as Alfred Cheney Johnson, known for photographing the Ziegfeld Follies.  She's studied the photography of Bunny Yeager, a former pinup model.

Host Deardra Shuler invited Lorcan Otway, owner/director of St Marks Theatre 80, located at 80 St Mark’s Place in NYC.  Mr Otway will discuss the recent play presented by the Negro Ensemble Co, "Grandma's Quilt, starring Karen A. Brown. The influence the Coronavirus has on the theater community. What both the Broadway and off-Broadway Theater Alliances are doing to protect its people, actors, audience and much more. Theatre 80 St Marks is an historic theater also known as "the jewel of Off-Broadway"  built in 1964.  It was built in a former speakeasy and jazz club where Frank Sinatra and Edward Albee began their careers.  This Lower East Side landmark is one of the city’s oldest revival theaters. It was designed by its late owner Howard Otway and his son Lorcan Otway.  "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown" opened at the theater in 1967, launching the careers of Bob Balaban, Gary Burghoff and one of the ushers, Billy Crystal. From 1970 - 1994 it was central in the third wave of classical film revival houses. The theater was leased out for live theater and managed by the Otway family trust upon the death of Howard Otway.  The theater is now run by his son, Lorcan Otway. The Theater's Walk of the Stars has signatures of a large number of stars from Gloria Swanson, Myrna Loy and Joan Crawford, to Alan Cumming and Gary Burghoff.  Recently "Late Night" with Jonathan Lithgow, Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson was filmed there. The Coronavirus is spreading so rapidly that industries are forced to temporarily shut down until the issue of how to handle the virus is dealt with. Lorcan Otway will talk about what the entertainment industry is doing, at least temporarily, to stem the spread of the disease.

May 2019 brings in a long-needed theme; Mint in Box. In other words, Corey (@coreyrstarr) and Jonathan (@berkreviews) decided to watch movies that they owned but had never seen before. In fact, it's this very issue that started the two to begin this podcast all those years ago. They own a bunch of movies, and while they've seen many of them. There are plenty of movies that were purchased with the intent to watch that still sit unopened. As far as the podcast goes, each episode features an in-depth review of the movie for the week. They begin with a spoiler-free review before diving in completely after the needed spoiler warning. However, before getting into the review of the week, Jonathan and Corey discuss what other movies they've seen since the last episode as well as anything else they feel like discussing. To help them decide which of the many films to watch each month they started creating themes for them all. Week 5 - Sunset Boulevard The theme ends with Jonathan's third choice of Sunset Boulevard (1950). He's been a fan of Billy Wilder and this is a big film of his that is still sitting on the gap list. The movie stars William Holden, Gloria Swanson, and Erich von Stroheim. The movie is about "A screenwriter develops a dangerous relationship with a faded film star determined to make a triumphant return." --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/berkreviewscom-moviecasts/support

I talked to Stephen Michael Shearer about his biography on Hedy Lamarr titled Beautiful: The Life Of Hedy Lamarr. Its a really good read. I usually skip a page here and there but I didn't with this book. I was fascinated by her childhood, her life in Vienna, her marriage to the third richest man in Vienna and her story of her escape from him and Vienna. We talked Hedy's six marriages. None lasting or happy. Her incredible inventions and her movie career. They really did not know what to do with her. Of course being so beautiful and aging were weighing large in her mind. People would meet her and say" You WERE so beautiful. She soon took to getting extensive plastic surgery that was not at all flattering. She also started seeing Dr Feelgood for his amazing B vitamin shots (actually meth) She started acting erratically. She shoplifted, and then she moved to Florida and became a recluse, not even letting her children see her. In 1997 she was finally lauded for her inventions. She never got a penny from them. This is a very extensive look into Hedy's life. You can also see Stephen on the new Hedy Movie Bombshell. Its available on Netflix. I want to thank Stephen for being such a great guest. I'm looking forward to talking g to him about other women he wrote about; Gloria Swanson and his friend Patricia Neal. Thanks to the listeners.

I vilken tonart klingar en romanfigur? Hur låter ett bildkonstverk? Möt nordiska litteraturpristagaren Naja Marie Aidt i Köpenhamn och konstnärsparet Olga Bergmann och Anna Hallin i Reykjavik. 2008 fick författaren Naja Marie Aidt Nordiska Rådets litteraturpristagare för novellsamlingen Bavian. Hon är en produktiv författare, med många utgivna böcker: noveller, dramatik, barnböcker och diktsamlingar. I programmet läser hon ur sin åttonde och mycket kritikerrosade diktsamling Poesibok. Aidt föddes på Grönland av danska föräldrar och har bott i Köpenhamn sedan hon var sju år. 2005, då vi firade att det var 200 år sedan författaren H C Andersen föddes, skrev Naja Marie Aidt en sångtext till en av H C Andersens nattliga drömmar, Min rasande häst. Den handlar om rädsla, vilket H C Andersen var väl förtrogen med. -Hjärtat är en häst som trofast travar genom livet. Hon uppfattar språket som musik och berättar om hur musiken påverkar hennes skrivprocess. Hon lyssnar på Bachs Matteuspassion när hon skriver. - Det skapar en harmoni i mig och de kreativa slussarna öppnas. Orden flyter lättare, förklarar Naja Marie Aidt.   I Reykjavik möter vi de två samlevande och samarbetande konstnärerna Olga Bergmann och Anna Hallin. Anna Hallin är skulptör, tecknare, animatör och fotograf. Hon  tecknar till Vektormusik. LUMPYDiversity är en animerad videofilm av Anna Hallin. Här möter oss ett musiklandskap befolkat av de märkligaste organismer tecknade med tusch i en mild färgskala. Atmosfären är meditativ, minimalistisk, ren och avskalad. Men strax under ytan vibrerar det av psykologisk spänning mellan fantasifigurerna. Lumpy Diversity: http://this.is/ahallin/animations_lumy.html   Olga Bergmann är bildkonstnär och studerade under många år klassiskt piano i Reykjavik. Hon valde dock bort musiken för bildkonsten, men i en av sina konstvideofilmer, TIMELAPSE, spelar hon en liten egenkomponerad vals. I videon konstruerar Olga Bergmanns en slags tidsmaskin för att skapa en illusion av ett släktmöte i ett tidlöst rum. Olga Bergmann söker efter spår av en släkting i USA, skådespelerskan, sångerskan och musikalstjärnan Judith Tuwim, senare Judy Holliday. Judy Holliday är en av artisten Madonnas största förebilder. Judy Holliday spelade bl a in plattan Holliday with Mulligan tillsammans med orkesterledaren och barytonsaxofonisten Gerry Mulligan, som var en av hennes nära vänner. 1950, 29 år gammal, fick Judy Holliday en Oscar som bästa skådespelerska för sin roll i filmkomedin Born Yesterday. Hon knep Oscarstatyetten från både Bette Davies i All about Eve och Gloria Swanson i Sunset Boulevard. Olga Bergmann bygger också en kosalong ute i en hage på Island. Hennes alter ego, Doctor B, sitter i gräset med förstoringsglas och pincett. Han dissikerar komockan i och fotograferar flitigt. Ur högtalare där i kohagen strömmar toner från svenske tenoren Jussi Björling.

On today's show Lady P welcomes back Carol (2015) screenwriter, Phyllis Nagy, for an in-depth discussion of Phyllis' all-time-favorite film, Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard (1950). Phyllis isn't the only one celebrating her glorious return to Flixwise. This is also the second appearance of one Norma Desmond, or rather Lady P's rather embarrassing imitation of the silent age film star. Norma first appeared on our original Sunset Boulevard episode, which features Professor Joseph McBride offering behind the scenes details of the filming of this Wilder classic. Today we're paying another visit to that old familiar street with Phyllis' personal take on the depiction of 1950s Hollywood. Lady P and Phyllis discuss their reactions to Gloria Swanson's bold representation of an aged actress, and how William Holden serves as an important ballast to Swanson's electric performance. Then Phyllis sets out to debunk some popular interpretations of the film - namely that it's either satirical or Campy. Phyllis tells listeners why she thinks critics often confuse a lack of sentimentality with satire, and offers up evidence for why she thinks Wilder was completely sincere in his depiction of these characters. Plus, Lady P and Phyllis offer up comparisons to other films of this era including All About Eve (1950), Sudden Fear (1952), and What Ever Happened To Baby Jane (1962) and talk about why Sunset Boulevard is truly "the greatest of them all". And if you haven't already please go back and listen to Phyllis' previous episode in which she goes into detail on the making of Carol. Plus she and Lady P offer up a couple of suggestions on Isabelle Huppert movies that all film buffs should seek out.

Arguably the greatest movie ever made about Hollywood, Billy Wilder's masterpiece SUNSET BOULEVARD is a tremendously entertaining combination of noir, horror and black comedy. An aging silent film queen refuses to accept that her stardom has ended, and she hires a young screenwriter to help set up her movie comeback. The screenwriter believes he can manipulate her, but he soon finds out he is wrong. The screenwriter's ambivalence about their relationship and her unwillingness to let go leads to a situation of violence, madness, and death. One of the coolest thing about this film is how it blurs the lines between truth and fiction, as real-life former silent film stars play themselves, Cecil B. DeMille plays himself, and Gloria Swanson is surrounded by glamour shots from HER silent film career. Join us as we talk about all of this, some of the most memorable lines in all of film history, and how James once tried to find the mansion on Sunset Boulevard. Ready for your close-up?

The hotel was designed by Trost & Trost and opened in 1912. This brick and terra cotta structure was the "dream hotel" of early El Paso businessman and promoter Zach White. Designed by the noted El Paso architectural firm of Trost and Trost, the structure was engineered to be fireproof and was modeled after buildings that had survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Throughout its history, Hotel Paso Del Norte has served travelers and tourists, has been an El Paso social center, and has been used as a headquarters for cattle trading ranchers. Numerous dignitaries from both the United States and Mexico have been guests here over the years. The large hotel lobby features a stained glass dome over twenty-five feet in diameter. During the Mexican Revolution, it was popular to watch firefights between the revolutionaries and the Mexican Army from the terrace on the top of the hotel. Some of the notable people who stayed at the hotel include Gloria Swanson, General John J.
