Damien Horne began performing at a young age growing up in Hickory, North Carolina. After high school graduation, Damien took a Greyhound bus to Los Angeles chasing his entertainment dreams. After becoming homeless, Damien returned to North Carolina where he formed the band Stellar Tree and made the move to Nashville. Performing on the streets at night led Damien to be discovered by country star John Rich who invited him to join the MuzikMafia through which Damien was able to secure a publishing deal and tour nationally with such artists as Dwight Yoakum, Kid Rock and John Legend. Damien released his first album "Somebody's Hero" produced by Big Kenny of Big & Rich. Outside of his solo career, Damien also formed the country-trio THE FARM which was signed to Warner Music Nashville. The Farm's debut single "Home Sweet Home" hit the Top 20. Damien Horne now musically collaborates with Krista Marie and cohosts the television show, “The Song”. He also has an inspirational trio called “The Magi”. Damien splits his time between Nashville and Los Angeles speaking, singing, and acting. If not on stage he can be found in schools, prisons, and even Ted Talks sharing his message of hope. https://www.damienhorne.com/ THE GOOD GOOD LIFE COURSE Code: #thekellycardenaspodcast $50 discount https://thegoodgoodlife.samcart.com/products/the-good-good-life-coaching-course Thank you to our sponsors Findlay Volvo Las Vegas https://www.findlayvolvocarslv.com/ Samaritans Feet https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/KellyCardenas?utm_medium=email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_campaign=20220105_ Pinks4Cancer https://recycling4acure.org/ Cardenas Law Group https://cardenaslawgroup.com/ Squeeze Dried https://squeezedried.com/ PAUL MITCHELL HAIR CARE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR STEP https://store.kellycardenassalon.com/collections/all-products BLING SHINE SERUM-The #1 seller of over 15years and the only product to be endorsed by my MAMA! https://store.kellycardenassalon.com/products/kelly-cardenas-salon-bling?_pos=1&_sid=6a4a4c2b4&_ss=r WEBSITE https://www.kellycardenas.com/ EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BROOKLYN CARDENAS

Why, it's a mother's heart. Can't you tell?" **************************************************************** LONELY AT THE TOP Cast: Tess (F/16) Teza (F/16) Markie/Marquay (F/16) Mom (F/40) Priest/Trainer/Doctor (M/40) NOTE: the roles are deliberately doubled to present the same “people” in both girls' lives. The “mom” speeches apply to both at the same time. OLIVIA Did you have any trouble finding it? What do you mean, what kind of a place is it? Why, it's a Mother's heart, can't you tell? MUSIC MOM's MUSIC MOM Darling, this is wonderful. You can't imagine how proud I am of you! I've always known you were special, but it means so much to have someone like that see what I have always seen! MUSIC OUT AMB MODERN MARKIE I totally can't believe it! You made the cut? TESS It's not set in stone yet - It's just the semi-finals, but mom's about to wet herself, she's so excited. MARKIE But Miss Modern Teen Model 2009! I mean, even if you wash out on the semi-finals, that's still soooo cool! I wish I was pretty. TESS Puh-lease. You're cute. Cute lasts. Beauty fades. MARKIE Cute. Yeah, that's my curse. Not tall enough to be a model, not short enough to walk under turnstiles... [laughs a bit bitterly] TESS Cute lasts. I have to make the most of this while I can. Besides, you have plans for your future - the scholarships are lining up. MARKIE Yeah yeah yeah, but brains don't get you dates. TESS Brains last too. MOM MUSIC MOM The idea that my daughter - my lovely child - could go all the way to the top. That you could have the perseverance and willpower to do what has to be done to make it. It will reflect so well on all of us! MUSIC OUT AMB AZTEC MARQUE You are one of the chosen? TEZA [laughs delightedly] Yes! There is still a long path ahead of me, but I feel - it feels right! MARQUE You are so fortunate! I wish I was graced with beauty pleasing to the gods. TEZA Everyone's fate is different, my dearest friend. I hear your parents have found you a husband! MARQUE He is ... kind. Not unappealing. Not too old. Yes, it is a promising match. I could certainly do worse. TEZA So you have as much to look forward to as I do! MARQUE Could you ... do something for me? TEZA Anything - you are my dearest friend and I love you! MARQUE When you ... get there, could you petition the great mother Chalchihuitlicue [chal-chee-weet-lee-cue] to smile upon my first pregnancy? That say that should you survive the first, the others are not so hard. TEZA Not even a bride yet, and you worry about bearing? Silly. Let your time come when it may. MARQUE But-- TEZA But! But I will. I will speak with every goddess in the heavens if it will help ease your burden. MARQUE I love you! MOM MUSIC MOM Don't be afraid honey, I won't let you fail. I know you can reach any goal you set your mind on. You simply must keep your focus. Can you do that? Eyes on the prize, sweetheart. And you know what that means - giving up the things that don't matter to clear the way for the things that do. AMB MODERN MOM What are you eating? TESS What? Ice cream. MOM No, no, no! You know what Mr. Dupree said - these last few days before the pageant, you need to stick to simple foods. No sugar! Nothing bloaty. TESS Chill mom. I made it this far-- MOM It just gets harder, honey. Every inch of the way is like another huge step up the side of a mountain. None of these steps are easy, but they're worth the effort, if only because of the view once you get up there. TESS You're really stoked on this, aren't you? MOM Yes honey, I'm stoked. For you. I want you to be able to get everything you can out of life - a model's life isn't easy, but there are plenty of rewards. TESS [heard it a million times] and you have to get it while you can, because models are over the hill before they can legally drink. MOM It's not funny, honey. It's very serious. Can't you give it just one year? How hard is that - to push yourself, for just one year? TESS I guess. MOM MUSIC MOM When I heard that you had been chosen, that you were smiled upon out of all the girls, I nearly wept. I was so pleased. I've watched your sisters put themselves at the service of husband and children, and I wanted so much more for you. You are my special, beautiful, darling. AMB AZTEC MARQUE I'm sorry you will miss my wedding. TEZA It is set, then? MARQUE Not the day, no, but it will be summer next, right after the sowing. TEZA A good time. And I will be with you in spirit. MARQUE The midwife thinks I will be old enough, then. [breaking a little] Oh, I will miss you! Once you enter the grand temple, we can never speak again! TEZA You will always be in my heart, as I know I will always be in yours. I will watch over you and always hear you when you speak to me. MARQUE It will be in the spring? For you? TEZA If I am selected to represent Chicomecoatl [chih-coe-me-coe-ah-tul]. It would be a great honor. MARQUE Your mother has been bragging everywhere. She cannot be quieted. TEZA It's as if she was the one being considered. MARQUE Never mind. Regardless, we will be together through the winter, while you learn all you must know for the big day. TEZA And you learn all you must know for your big day. MOM MUSIC MOM My dearest child, you don't know how my heart swells with pride when I think about you, up there in front of everyone, beautiful and serene, like a shining star, and knowing, deep inside myself, that I made you perfect. AMB DUAL [Both are speechifying] TESS I am so pleased to be considered -- TEZA --to represent our lady of corn on this most sacred of days. I have always wanted-- TESS --to be able to find a way to show the world what I have inside, what I have to offer. And if I could do one thing-- TEZA --I would like to make my mother, my family, and my people proud of me, for community is everything. Without the people around us, we-- TESS --would never have made it this far, this close to becoming the next to represent-- TEZA --Lady of the corn-- TESS --Miss Modern Teen Model 2019. AMB MODERN TESS [crying] MOM What the hell did you think you were doing in there? They were laughing at you! TESS [teary] What? MOM That judge said you walk like a trucker with hemorrhoids! TESS I don't know how I walk! I don't watch me! MOM [softening] Honey! Sweetie! Oh, come here. It's not over - I promise you. You were doing so well, I'm sure this one thing won't put you out entirely, as long as you don't give up. TESS I want to-- MOM Shh. Shh. We'll just find someone to do something about that walk. No big deal. AMB AZTEC TEZA [tears] It's all over! I know it! MARQUE Why? TEZA The rich merchant from Tenochtitlan - he has requested I marry him! MARQUE But doesn't he know you are destined for the temple? TEZA [scornful] Apparently he likes the idea of marrying someone perfect enough for the gods. MARQUE That is - he is asking for something terrible to happen! TEZA Well, I haven't been chosen yet - if I tried to step away then, that would be blasphemy. But to drop out now... what a blow it would be to everyone. And yet - my mother may consider his offer, since he is very prosperous. It is not fair! MARQUE No. Do not worry. I think this means as much to your mother - more even - than it does to you. She wishes you to secure her a place in the high tables of the night. And there is money from the temple as well - the position is a very prestigious one. MOM MUSIC MOM Your dreams are all that matters, my dearest child. I will never try and stop you from getting everything you deserve. You know you can count on my support every step of the way. I will always be behind you to help you face forward, and will push you up every step, if that's what it takes. AMB MODERN SOUND VOMITING MUFFLED BY DOOR MOM Honey? You doing all right? TESS [recovering] Just a minute. MOM Quick rinse, dear - there's someone here to see you! SOUND DOOR SHUTS, FOOTSTEPS MOM She'll be out in a minute - fixing her face, you know. TRAINER Of course. Why don't work out my fees while we wait-- SOUND DOOR OPENS TESS [subdued] Hi. MOM Oh, come on, show a little enthusiasm! She's really much more excited than that. TRAINER Don't worry - I understand. So this is Tess. [hmming noises] SOUND FOOTSTEPS CIRCLE TESS TRAINER Has she had any formal modeling training? MOM She's been taking classes since she was nine. TRAINER [disapproving] Hmm. MOM But she also studied ballet, tap, jazz, deportment, and has kept up a 3.7 G-P-A. TRAINER [dismissive noise] TESS And I- TRAINER Shh! How old is she? MOM Fourteen. TRAINER We're starting it a bit late, but I see potential here. Show me this walk... MOM MUSIC MOM Think on this. Think of the great ones - the ones we all idolize and hold in great regard. Now picture your face there, among them, gracing the rest of us below. Can't you see yourself? Your perfect self? AMB AZTEC MOM [whispered] Don't they look grand in their feathers? They hold our future - your future in their very hands. TEZA Mother. You will make me tongue-tied. They are wise and all-knowing. They will know if I am the one-- MOM That you are the one-- TEZA --the minute they lay eyes upon me. MOM [gasp] Was that your name? Did they call your name? TEZA Yes, mother it was my name. Pray for me. SOUND ECHOING FOOTSTEPS PRIEST You, child. You aspire to represent the great lady of the corn? TEZA [awed and respectful] Yes, if it please the gods. PRIEST You are lovely, but are you pure? TEZA Yes, sire. My mother can swear to it. PRIEST Remove your shawl, show us your body. Do not hesitate, child - nothing untoward will happen. Your mother is right there watching. SOUND HEAVY FABRIC FALLS TO THE FLOOR MOM MUSIC MOM It's just skin, honey. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. You're lovely. Think of yourself as a work of art, and they are objective observers. They wouldn't be interested in you that way, anyway - you know that. And I'm right here. Tell me if you get nervous, and I'll make them stop. All right? You know every girl who has gone before has been through this same thing. AMB MODERN TESS [nervous, jittery] Well, they haven't said no, yet. MARKIE That's good. TESS I guess. I mean, I'm starting to wonder whether it's all really worth it. I'm supposed to get good sleep, be rested, so I can look my best, but half the time I'm too damn nervous, or hungry, or...something. I'm always trying not to think of things, like food, or having time to myself - I mean, what is it all for? MARKIE Wow. Maybe you should just tell your mom you want to stop. TESS Tell my mom? [laughs almost hysterically] Tell my mom? Are you high? She would toss me out on my ear. She's got so into this - and besides, she's spent all this money - mucho dinero, you know - to get me this far. How can I let her down - make her waste all that? MARKIE But you have to think of yourself, right? TESS I promised her I would do this for one year. Just a year - I can do it. [affirmations] I have the willpower to maintain, and the serenity to--[breaks into a sob] MARKIE Have you eaten anything today? TESS I can't! The pre-judging is tomorrow. MARKIE I have some tic-tacs-- TESS No! Don't tempt me! Shit, Markie, you're supposed to be helping me! MOM MUSIC MOM It will all be worth it, you know it will. The purging, the special oils. You will always be the most lovely one in the place - caught in that one special moment, when you shine above all others. No one will ever forget you after that! AMB AZTEC TEZA great and reverent master, what if I have doubts? PRIEST Doubts? What doubts, child? TEZA I fear that I will not be worthy. That I will falter in my steps and dishonor the crown of corn. PRIEST I can look into your heart, child, and I see that you have the strength within you to bear this burden - to rise to the heights, and carry the name of Chicomecoatl with dignity and grace. TEZA Do you? PRIEST It is always the way of men and women to doubt themselves. To worry that they will lose themselves in fear, or to ponder what life would be like had they not stepped out upon the path to greatness. Ever and always. TEZA But what can I do? PRIEST Fast and pray, child. I know you will see the correctness of your choice. And when your day of glory comes, you will never know fear or doubt again. MOM MUSIC MOM A boy? What do you mean a boy? You don't have time for - you're too young for boys. All the boys you could possibly want will be at your feet, when the time comes, but right now - [hissed] it will ruin you. AMB MODERN TESS But Corey's on TV! He could help my-- MOM He could get you on the covers of a bunch of sleazy tabloids-- TESS But you said publicity is good-- MOM Not that kind - that will make sure everyone knows your name, but you will never be high class again! Save that kind of exploitation for when your looks start to fade. TESS Yeah, like when I'm 17. MOM You knew going in this was a short hard run, missy. There is no free ride. You wanted this as much as I did! TESS Well I don't want it any more! I want to have a normal life! MOM Fine. We can go back to living a normal life. You and me and your dad - oh, wait. Where should we live, hun? We sold the house when we came on the road with you - to finance your headshots and your spa treatments. I suppose if you quit school-- TESS [muttered] I can't concentrate anyway. MOM --and get a job in fast food, we three between us could make enough to [ramping up, each statement a dagger] live in a crappy little apartment and eat junk food all the time and get enormously fat and covered in acne, and then as soon as you're old enough, you can run off with some high school drop out who wants to start a band-- [sliding down, into her own misery] but of course you love each other and he ends up driving Greyhound and you lose the last vestige of your waist when you have the first three children, but the fourth child - your fourth child, she might just be perfect enough to live the good life - the beautiful life - at least until she ruins it! TEZA You gave me the choice mother, and I accept my fate. MOM I always knew you were just too good to live. You are an angel, honey, a perfect angel. TESS Yes, mother. MOM Sweetie. [all business] Now here's your pills from Dr. Gustavson - he said don't take them on an empty stomach, so go grab a cracker and some diet soda. MOM MUSIC MOM There is nothing wrong with wanting more for your child than you had. Wanting to guide her and make sure she gets the advantages instead of making the same stupid mistakes you made. Is there? Isn't all of life - at least the lives of parents - the effort to make a better life for your children? AMB AZTEC MARQUE And is he very handsome, the chosen vessel of Tezcatlipoca? TEZA Don't be silly - he is perfect. They wouldn't have chosen him otherwise. [sigh] but of course, we are set upon different paths. MARQUE Perhaps you will meet later. Beyond the sun. TEZA Perhaps. But he has been given four wives who are all perfect as well. MARQUE And you are the Lady of Corn - none can shine brighter than a candle in the sunlight when you are in the room. I swear you get more beautiful every day. This suits you. TEZA Thank you - my mother says so also. [beat] We are to meet at another function - what if he talks to me again? MARQUE Talk is all well and good, but do not be alone. It is so humiliating to prove that you have not fallen into temptation. TEZA ugh [shudder] I could go my whole life without ever feeling that again. [bucks up] And I shall. I may talk to him, but I will never step out of the sight of the priests. We will both remain perfect. MARQUE Very good. TEZA I wish you could have come with me...but the temple handmaidens are devoted even earlier than we. MARQUE Well, I have news for you as well. My husband to be, [pleased] who has meals with my family more often than custom requires -hmm? - is really quite an amusing man. And very fond of me. I may not have my moment in the center of the universe, but I will have a good life. TEZA I am so pleased. And I will remember to petition for you. SOUND [hug noise] MOM MUSIC MOM Unhappy? How can you be unhappy? You have everything you could possibly want - your face in front of everyone, men at your beck and call, and attending all the best celebrations! What could you possibly be missing? [wheedling] you know I'm only doing this for you! You want this as much as I do! You've finally made it, honey, what more could any girl want? Every girl out there looks at you and cries herself to sleep wishing she could trade lives with you. That is enough to make anyone happy, isn't it? To be envied? How could you possibly be unhappy enough to do this? AMB MODERN DOCTOR Now take two of these every eight hours, to prevent infection, and change the dressings every 4 hours or so. MOM I'll keep her on schedule, don't you worry. And...this won't get out? DOCTOR It's hardly likely that people won't notice the change, even with the recuperation period, but I certainly don't keep in business by revealing personal info about my clientele. TESS Mom? MOM Don't worry, dear. Momma's right here. TESS You said I wouldn't feel it. MOM Does it hurt, honey? Here, doctor, can she have something for the pain? DOCTOR That's in the bag too, but do go light on them - you don't want to become dependent. MOM And when the scars heal, and everyone sees how lovely you are, with your new curves, you will be the envy of even more of the world. TESS [dully] Of course, mother. MOM MUSIC MOM Even perfection can be improved on. Beauty is pain. That which is prized most is always hardest to come by. If it was easy to be beautiful, everyone would want to be ugly instead. You cannot be special if everyone can easily achieve what you have. You must stand out. You must shine. Look into that mirror, dearest child, and tell me you don't love yourself even more each day as you come closer and closer to perfection. MUSIC - BOTH TEZA Life is pain TESS Beauty sucks. TEZA I am being remade in the image of the goddess. TESS Who decides what I should fucking look like? TEZA Painted and pierced. Smoothed and scented. I am treated like a queen. TESS If I have to have one more operation, I'll pee stitches. TEZA I bite the stick and let the pain carry me away as they mold my flesh. TESS I cry all night, silently, so my mother won't come and comfort me. AMB AZTEC TEZA See my new ear plugs? They made them larger again, and heavy. They almost touch my shoulders now. MARQUE Don't they hurt? TEZA Of course, but pain won't last forever. I rather coveted a nose piercing as well, but that is not suited to the lady. I am being remade in her image. MARQUE I really admire your hair. Such elegantly styled coils and plaits! TEZA Smell! Only the finest oils must touch me. Everything is moving so quickly - such a short time left before the day I ascend to the top of the sky. MARQUE Too bad it is not sooner - my sister will start her labor soon, and she could use a blessing from the lady of rivers. TEZA I can still burn offerings, like anyone else. MARQUE True, but I can't help but feel the word of the corn lady will be heard so much louder than mere mortals such as we. TEZA [laughs ruefully] I can ask any one of a legion of priests to guide me in my prayers, and they will gladly help - for it is goodly for the lady of the corn to look after those with child. MARQUE Would you? TEZA Yes. And the priests - well their voices will carry as far as they need to go. [they laugh] MOM MUSIC MOM The day is set, my child. You have reached the height. This can never be undone and leave you a nobody ever again. Everyone will see your face, and know - they will know - that you are the center of the universe. AMB MODERN TESS Who the hell am I? MOM What? Sweetie, you're-- TESS I used to know! I used to be Tess, a pretty and I dunno - slightly talented, maybe - high school student, and now--[sob catches] MOM Now, you're the most beautiful woman in the world - the magazine said so. It showed your absolute perfection-- TESS Not my perfection, mother - that's complete crap. I'm like - I'm like Mr. potato head, and you stuck hair and makeup and a pair of boobs on me - None of this is me! Who the hell am I? Did you ever ask? Did you ever care? MOM Honey! It's just icing on a wonderful cake. You like cake, don't you? [ingratiating] And isn't it better with frosting? TESS [through gritted teeth] I don't GET cake, mother, not unless I want to taste it both ways [eating and throwing up]. I don't even know if I could hold it down if I tried. MOM What the hell has got into you? TESS You couldn't even leave me my own name, could you? "Tess" just isn't supermodel material. And you didn't even choose it - you let a marketing firm do a survey and took their suggestions. MOM You got to pick one of the three they came up with-- TESS There isn't any me left under all this, mother! Nothing. I'm hollow. Empty. MOM Where are you going? TESS To find something to fill me. MOM MUSIC MOM Purpose. Purpose is enough, isn't it? You are moving forward, ever forward. The search for perfection is a road, not a destination. There is nothing wrong with embellishing the beauty you were born with. AMB AZTEC MARQUE [crying] It was horrible. TEZA I'm so sorry. I did what I could. MARQUE I know. She is with the gods, now, but it was so awful. I - I'm so scared. TEZA Why? MARQUE Watching her - watching the blood and the pain, hours and hours of it - and the baby died too! How can I ever choose to go through that? TEZA It is what women do. MARQUE You won't ever have to. TEZA [teasing a bit] I have to give life to the whole world. [serious] But I feel for you. And for your sister, and her baby. It is a tragedy. MARQUE Is there anything in life that doesn't hurt? TEZA Flowers. Chocolate. Love. MARQUE You know what I mean - important things. TEZA What is more important than Love? MARQUE [sniff, then a tiny sad uh-huh] MOM MUSIC MOM Only a few more days. Nothing must go wrong. You must be so very careful not to harm yourself, even a scratch or a nick will show. Only the most skilled may come to do your hair, massage, and dress you in the most beautiful garments. Nothing is left to chance. Nothing. Do you hear me? Nothing will go wrong, even if I have to hurt someone. MODERN AMB MOM I see you're feeling a little better? TESS [dull] Yes I took my medicine. MOM Good. Nothing like seeing a smile on my little girl's face again. And there's nothing wrong with using science to combat unhappiness. TESS Yes mother. MOM Unhappiness isn't natural. Especially for beautiful people. TESS Beautiful. MOM Dear. Don't frown. You don't want to get wrinkles! TESS Why don't I just lie here like a blob? That way I can't break a nail. MOM Are you sure you took your pills? TESS [sigh] MOM MUSIC MOM It is always darkest right before the dawn. And it is always tensest the night before the main event. You hold your breath and pray for dawn, the watch the shadows crawl across the ground, feeling like the final moment will never come. And once it arrives? Pfft. It is over. AZTEC AMB TEZA I'm happy you could sit vigil this night with me, mother. MOM How could I do otherwise, my darling chosen one? TEZA [teasing] You must relinquish your claim to me, since I am now the Corn lady. MOM [fondly, almost in tears] My lady of corn. I will never forget that I was able to contribute to the glory you represent. TEZA Without you I would not be here - would not be able to bring life to the crops for another year. MOM And yet it is a melancholy time as well. Knowing that the great lady will ascend to heaven tomorrow. TEZA I told Marque I will watch over her. I can watch you both. I have two eyes. MOM Can Teza give her mother a final kiss before the Corn lady must take her walk? TEZA Of course. [kiss noise] MOM MUSIC MOM And this is it. The end. What we have worked so hard for. I know it is a sad time. I feel sad too, but the triumph, the glory, the joy will outweigh the sorrow. MODERN AMB MOM What the hell do you mean, she's gone? TRAINER She was here for the opening - the talent portion is about to start, and she's not in the dressing room. MOM Have you checked the bathroom? TRAINER I asked every girl in there, and between yarks they said they hadn't seen her. MOM How could she do this to me? TRAINER Worse - her opening number gown is gone too, and it was a rental. AMB - MIXED [Tess is down, Teza is filled with joy] TEZA I gaze up the endless stairs TESS Knowing this will be my last trip BOTH I feel my sandals shift beneath my feet as I take the first step. TEZA With each step, the roaring grows louder TESS The voices in my head just won't shut up! TEZA I must go slowly, for while I cannot falter, neither can I look down. TESS My head is so heavy TEZA My crown is so weighty. BOTH I feel all those eyes upon me. TESS [shriek] They won't leave me alone! TEZA [ecstatic] They love me! TESS They hate me! TEZA Each step takes me higher. Closer to the heavens. TESS I haul myself up, one step at a time. TEZA My ears still ache - the pain reminds me of what I leave behind. TESS The pain of what I have become will never leave me. TEZA The scent of a thousand flowers, thrown by the crowd, surrounds me. TESS The hallway smells of puke. BOTH Only a few more steps. TEZA I thrill with fear and longing, yearning for the gods. TESS Please god don't let me fuck this up. TEZA The priests await me, stern and welcoming. TESS I see a face and don't recognize myself until I realize it's a mirror. TEZA The name me Chicomecoatl, and I know I have become the Lady of the corn. TESS I stare into the eyes in the mirror and have no clue who she is. BOTH I take up the cup. TEZA The drink warms me, and I love everyone. TESS I drink slowly, timing the pills - too fast and I'll barf it all up before it can work. TEZA My mind floats. BOTH I can't feel anything anymore. TEZA They gently lay me on the altar. TESS The bathroom tile is cool under my cheek. TEZA The knife above me catches light from Huitztipotchli's glory. TESS Everything is getting dark TEZA The knife falls and I transcend. TESS Everything goes black.

Episode 25: Recorded November 15, 2021 “I think of you as the Sir Mark Prescott of American coursing...”Host John Parker on Steve Downs and his involvement in coursing in the United States Show Notes Steve Downs is a fourth generation Greyhound man. His father's family hailed from California and became interested in hunting hares, also referred to as as jackrabbits in the United States. Steve caught his first hare around the age of five with the first Greyhound he could call his own, a black brindle named Felix. In 1990, Steve joined a friend for a coursing meeting sanctioned by the National Open Field Coursing Association (NOFCA). On this trip to Wyoming, he experienced coursing under rules for the first time with his Greyhound. Steve's favorite Greyhound at the time -- Sally -- won the hunt on his behalf. NOFCA, founded in the 1960s, established rules for walked-up coursing in the United States for most of the sighthound breeds. Steve would continue his involvement with the organization into the mid-2000s when he became a licensed judge for NOFCA coursing meetings. He also began to breed his own Greyhounds for open field coursing and developed a sense for the traits that made for excellent coursing dogs. In this episode, host John Parker and Steve discuss the history of open field coursing in the United States, including the evolution of NOFCA as a governing body for the sport. Steve shares his experiences as a breeder, a judge, and a competitor during the course of the interview.

James Horn is a native of England who now resides in Virginia and works in Williamsburg, which makes sense if you know his scholarship. He has a new book out, A Brave and Cunning Prince: The Great Chief Opechancanough and the War for America. His book examines the crucial early years of the English colonies, which involved starvation, warfare, disease, and even cannibalism. While Jamestown is the first permanent English colony in America, it came close to annihilation in the early 1600s. Opechancanough waged war against the English for decades, but he had a long relationship with European settlers. Born in the mid-16th century, his life spanned over 90s years. He was abducted and traveled to Mexico and Europe as a young man. He remained loyal to the native people of Virginia, however, and proved a fierce adversary of the English. Colin also asks about Jim's upbringing in England, his early travels in America (involving a semester in Wisconsin and a memorable trip across country via Greyhound bus), and his eventual move to Richmond.

Examining the History of Sighthounds with Bo Bengtson Bo Bengtson, author, publisher and Whippet breeder, attended his first dog show in 1958 in his native Sweden. He joins host Laura Reeves for a deep dive into the intricacies of sighthounds. “It was, right away, like lightning struck,” Bengtson said. “I was 14 years old and I just knew right away that this was what I wanted to devote my life to. It was really fascinating. It was, as someone once said, a combination of zoo and circus and theater … A passion for sighthounds “You have to know a little bit about coursing if you're involved in sighthounds. They have remained the same for thousands of years, the basic type. They weren't breeds early on but different types of sighthounds. if you look at the early description of coursing which is the pursuit of game with sighthounds … that is a sport that's now these days illegal in most of US… It's been superseded by lure coursing, which is an artificial form of coursing. [caption id="attachment_8665" align="alignleft" width="372"] "Hunters Homeward Bound," 10th Century AD. Courtesy of Bo Bengston.[/caption] “(Sighthounds developed) before firearms basically, when the only way you had to hunt was through the dogs and whatever they could course and kill was basically today's dinner. Firearms made sighthounds very much superfluous. And I think the sport then became very much a status symbol. (Sighthounds) are of course aesthetically pleasing and so many rich people and aristocratic people preferred to hunt with sighthounds, not because of need but because it was a beautiful spectacle and pretty expensive spectacle too. In various parts of the world, Queen Elizabeth I was very fond of coursing. In Russia they coursed with Borzoi. And in the Far East there were Salukis. What IS a Sighthound? “There is no official definition of what a sighthound is. So there is a great disagreement about what breeds actually count as sighthounds. You can count as few as four or five as pure sighthounds and as many as 40 as “sighthound related” or different types of breeds we don't know in this country. Some we wouldn't define as breeds but more as types. (Listen to fascinating conversations about the Caravan Hounds of India https://puredogtalk.com/podcast/422-exploring-the-caravan-hounds-of-india/ (here) and https://puredogtalk.com/podcast/420-living-history-on-the-silk-road-asiatic-sighthounds/ (here).) History of sighthound development “I think we have to go back again a couple of thousand years because there have probably always been different sizes of greyhounds. Greyhound types. The big ones which were the ancestor of the modern greyhound. And we have the different, smaller ones that were ancestors of whippet and the Italian greyhounds. I think that Whippets, although they weren't described as a breed until late 1800s, they have certainly been around much longer. Catherine the Great of Russia had little English greyhounds she called them. And they were very important to her. She nursed them herself and they slept on a pink couch in her bedroom. But whether they're Italian greyhounds, whether they were whippet, who knows. I mean they were very small and whether Italian greyhounds or whippets, it is kind of irrelevant these days. “The Greyhound and the Saluki are sort of the “ur” sighthound, what sighthounds are supposed to be like. … if you take one step away from Saluki you get the Afghan Hound, which is a little more powerful. If you take several steps away from the Greyhound, you get the Ibizan Hound and you get the Portuguese Podengo and that kind of thing.” Listen to the full episode for more detailed insights into all things sighthound.

Also on Friday, the Virginia Department of Health reported the percent positivity dropped to 5.3 percent, on a day when the seven-day average for new cases is 1,328. But there are hotspots emerging across the country. Vermont is experiencing its worst surge yet, with a record 595 cases on Thursday and 505 cases on Friday according to the website VTDigger.Dr. Costi Sifri, director of hospital epidemiology at the University of Virginia Health System, said colder parts of the country are beginning to see the increase. “Just as we’re entering the cold and flu season, we’re also entering the season where we may see increased transmission of COVID just because we’re going into the winter months,” Dr. Sifri said. Dr. Sifri said COVID still represents a significant risk and he recommended people continue to wear masks in indoor public spaces. Thanksgiving is less than two weeks and Dr. Sifri emphasized caution.“One thing I’d want to emphasize is the importance of boosters for people who are vulnerable,” Dr. Sifri said. In the Blue Ridge Health District, ten percent of children between 5 and 11 have been vaccinated during the first week a reduced Pfizer dose has been available.The Virginia Supreme Court has rejected three Republican nominees to serve as Special Masters in the next phase of the redistricting process. In October, a 16-member redistricting commission failed to reach consensus on maps for legislative districts for both the General Assembly and the U.S. House of Representatives. Senate Democratic Leader Richard Saslaw petitioned the Court to disqualify the three Republican nominees, claiming conflicts of interest due to their previous work on creating maps.The Virginia Supreme Court agreed.“The Court intends to appoint Special Masters who are qualified and do not have a conflict of interest,” reads a November 12 letter from Chief Justice Donald Lemons. “Although the Special Master candidates are to be nominated by legislative leaders of a particular party, the nominees… will serve as Officers of the Court in a quasi-judicial capacity.”Justice Lemons said that nominees must not consult with political parties once they have been appointed. One of the Republican nominees, Thomas M. Bryan, had been hired by the Republican Party of Virginia as a consultant on using 2020 U.S. Census data for redistricting. That information had not been disclosed in the nominating materials. Republicans have until Monday at 5 p.m. to submit three new names, and Democrats are being asked to submit one more name due to a potential issue with one of their three nominees. For more information, visit the Supreme Court’s website. The national bus company Greyhound has been purchased by a German firm called FlixMobility. They operate a service called Flixbus which operates in 36 countries in addition to the United States. Greyhound serves 2,400 stops across the country, and has a ridership of 16 million passengers. “Buses as a sustainable and accessible alternative are now more important than ever,” reads an October 21, 2021 press release. “Fluctuations in the cost of gas, the recent escalation of car prices, and climate change concerns have increased the interest of many consumers in finding alternatives to individual car usage.” For $46 million cash and $32 million in future payments, Flixmobility will now own the Greyhound name and the bus fleet, but not any real estate or stops. Flixbus has been running buses in U.S. since 2018. Meanwhile, on Monday the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation will launch the Highland Rhythms service between Bristol and Washington D.C. This is the fourth Virginia Breeze intrastate route to be funded by the state agency, which will be operated by Megabus. A ceremony was held this morning at the Birthplace of Country Music in Bristol (read more in the Bristol Herald-Courier)Time now to take a look at recent land use applications in Albemarle County.First, a site development plan has been submitted for a new Chipotle restaurant to be located in Hollymead Town Center. Before the pandemic, there would be site plan review meetings for the public to comment, but those have not been held. However, the Albemarle officials are looking to begin to resume the public process. “These projects are ‘by-right’, which means that if the proposed plans meet the minimum requirements of the County’s zoning, site plan, or subdivision ordinances, they must be approved,” reads the notice for this application. (take a look)A TGI Friday’s Restaurant used to operate on the site and the existing building will be replaced and a drive-through window will be installed in the new building. Another site plan has been filed for a three-story self-storage facility at the intersection of Brownsville Road, Route 240, and Rockfish Gap Turnpike (U.S. 250). The zoning on the site is Highway Commercial and a gas station used to operate on the site. That building and a couple of others will be removed to make way for the structure. (take a look)Southwood Phase 2In October, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville filed the second phase of their rezoning for the redevelopment of the Southwood Mobile Home Park. The rezoning would amend the first phase to add 93.32 acres from R-2 to the Neighborhood Model District. “Phase 2 is planned within the project's existing mobile home park where development will occur in phases so as to limit the impact to the existing residents,” reads the narrative. “The resident planners who designed and wrote the Code of Development for Phase I has provided input in this next phase that the form, density, and uses established with Phase I should continue into Phase 2.”This phase of redevelopment would include up to 1,000 housing units in a mix of single-family houses, duplexes, townhomes, and apartment buildings. There would also be another 60,000 square feet of non-residential space. (read the Code of Development)Several blocks in phase one are under construction. *You’re listening to Charlottesville Community Engagement, and time now for another subscriber-supported public service announcement.

Albemarle County staff have begun work on the update of the Comprehensive Plan with a public kick-off expected sometime in January. A major aspect of the current plan is a growth management policy which designates specific areas for density. This plan was last updated in 2015 and since then Supervisors have adopted several other policies, such as the Housing Albemarle plan.“To accommodate this growth, the County will need to add approximately 11,750 new units to our housing stock over the next 20 years,” reads Objective 1 of the plan, which was adopted by Supervisors in July. “The county must support the development of an additional 2,719 units to fully accommodate projected household growth through 2040.” One of the growth areas is the Village of Rivanna and their Community Advisory Committee met on November 8. Most of its members are not happy with the Board of Supervisors 4-2 vote in October for a rezoning from rural area to R-1 for an 80-unit single-family neighborhood called Breezy Hill. (staff report) (Village of Rivanna Master Plan) (watch the meeting)Dennis Odinov is the group’s chair. “We all know how it turned out and we may be disappointed but what are lessons learned?” Odinov said. “Are there any lessons learned from this?” Members of the group thanked Supervisor Donna Price for her against the rezoning. Price was joined by Supervisor Ann Mallek. Southern Development had initially requested 200 units, but scaled back due to community opposition. The Village of Rivanna Master Plan designated the land as Neighborhood Density Residential, and a map describes that as up to three dwelling units per acre. Members of the CAC maintained the plan only allows one dwelling unit per acre. Neal Means said pressure from the group helped get the number to 80 but he does not have a positive view of Southern Development. “It just goes to show you that the developers really don’t care about the master plan at all and the arguments they made much later about it should be one unit per gross acre and not net, is just an argument,” Means said. “They’re going to try to get as much as they can any time they want, no matter what the master plan says.”Gross density is a simple calculation of the number of units divided by the size of the land. Net density subtracts from the size of the land the square footage that would be used for infrastructure or open space. In the case of Breezy Hill, the gross density was 1 unit per acre, but the net density was 1.4 per acres. To Means, that means the system is broken. “I don’t think the county’s master planning process is functioning well,” Means said. “I think it’s dysfunctional and it needs to be revisited.” Ultimately, elected officials make their decisions based on interpretation of master plans. Odinov said the current version of the plan was not clear enough to state the wishes of the community. “We have no language in the master plan that says one unit per acre, net,” Odinov said “We don’t say it in the verbiage.” The master plan also states that no new developments should be approved until specific transportation projects are built on U.S. 250. However such a directive is not permissible under Virginia law. In Virginia, localities cannot specifically ask for infrastructure to be built in exchange for a rezoning, but developers can volunteer to pay for projects in something called a proffer. “I thought it was a slap in the face,” said Paula Pagonakis. “I took it as a slap in the face when the developer said he could not provide any proffers because he would not get enough profit out of the project. I don’t know how much impact that had on the vote by the Supervisors but I felt a bit insulted.”In Charlottesville, Southern Development has agreed to contribute nearly $3 million upfront for the creation of a sidewalk on Stribling Avenue, a 170 units project on about 12 acres. If Council approves the rezoning, Southern Development will be paid back through the incremental revenue generated.Supervisor Donna Price voted against the rezoning but said the community pressure to reduce Breezy Hill’s scope resulted in a more palatable project. “Did we achieve everything?” Price asked. “No. But we came out I think a whole better strategically than if it had been at 160 or 130.”Price said she supported increased density in Crozet and voted for the 332-unit RST Residences near Forest Lakes. “Highly dense, but it is also right on a six-lane highway up there,” Price said. “I’ve tried to maintain a consistency of if you get to the periphery of development areas it should be less developed and as you move more toward the center of development it should be more highly developed and more dense.” An update of the Village of Master Plan is not currently scheduled, according to county planner Tori Kanellopoulos. “It would need to be on the Community Development work program and we do have the Comprehensive Plan update that just started,” Kanellopoulos said. “That will take up a significant amount of resources.”I’ll have a report from the Crozet Community Advisory Committee in an upcoming edition of Charlottesville Community Engagement.

Caroline lives outside Indianapolis IN with her two cats, my retired racing Greyhound, and an incredible support system of my sweet husband and friends.

Episode 191: On the evening of July 30, 2008, Tim McLean, a 22-year-old Canadian carnival barker was returning home to Winnipeg riding a Greyhound bus when he was viciously stabbed, beheaded, and cannibalized by another passenger about 18 km west of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. After arriving on scene, RCMP watched for hours as the perpetrator, Vince Li, 40, desecrated Tim's body inside the bus after the driver and remaining passengers had fled, powerless to stop the man's frenzy. Less than a year later, Vince Li was found not criminally responsible (NCR) for Tim McLean's slaying, but held in a Manitoba psychiatric institution from which he was released just 6 years later.

Kyle Ayers has never seen Greyhound, but he rewrote it, and we read his script. And I is he (real sentence). Sadly, our audio from the live show did not capture properly, so Kyle brings his script for Tom Hanks' Greyhound to a proper recording. He is joined by Todd Sklar and Daniel Shar. Before the script even begins (around 28 minutes in) Kyle starts playing with a deep fake audio machine, and we play a round of Guess What Movie Trailer Kendrick Lamar is Describing Having Only Been Input Kyle's Dad's Trailer Game Transcribed. Thank you to everyone who came out to our live show in Chicago! Indescribable how nice it felt to be doing that again. Richmond, Raleigh, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington, Asheville, Atlanta, please come check out Kyle live! Including a live Never Seen It in Asheville!
