70. Star Trek: The Next Generation, Harvey Wallbanger

Phil and Jake are joined by friend-of-the-pod and fandom specialist Melissa B. to rank Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the mixed drink known as the Harvey Wallbanger on the List of Every Damn Thing.Check out Melissa's reviews on the Comic News Insider podcast, find her on Instagram, and follow her work on Can the Replicator Make This? and Outside ComicCon.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Melissa is also on the Board of Directors of the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame, and we talk a bit about racing at the beginning of the episode.  Pixar's Cars remains the thing Phil is most prepared to talk about. Why are there military vehicles in this world? Why are there ambulances for that matter? Why school buses?  Phil mentions a scene in the Brave Little Toaster where appliances at a junkyard sing a sad song. This page from Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel which also makes him sad. We discuss a number of other Star Trek properties, including the movies, as well as Star Trek: The Original Series, Deep Space Nine, Lower Decks and Picard. Of course we talk about the Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball game, which comes in second place on the Internet Pinball Database list of Top 300 Electronic Pinball Machines. “Darmok” is Phil's favorite episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (although he's only seen a few). It's about understanding people and learning how to listen. It's kind of like the thinking man's version of the episode from Star Trek: The Original Series where Kirk fights a lizard man (and you can see cars on the highway in the background).  The SF Chronicle's little man dates all the way back to the 1940s! Sir Patrick Stewart is the true star of Star Trek: the Next Generation. When he's not on screen Phil & Jake immediately lose interest. Phil's feelings towards Data probably aren't going to date well.  In related news, Sophia the android (who, of course, you can follow on twitter) probably wouldn't enjoy our episode on the uncanny valley effect very much (because she's a robot and can't experience enjoyment). Because the episode wouldn't be complete without it, we do mention both the Borg and the character of Q (no relation to QAnon). There are channels on YouTube of just ambient starship background noise. Here's one of the ship from Star Trek: the Next Generation. In Star Trek: TNG the crew of the ship sometimes go into a virtual reality type room for training or recreation, called the Holodeck. They solve mysteries as Sherlock Holmes, etc,,, whatever they have wardrobe and sets for at Paramount. Phil doesn't like it because the whole point of watching a TV show about travelling through space would presumably be to see people traveling through space. If he wanted to see a Sherlock Holmes-based TV show he'd watch one of those. Melissa has some real issues with the TNG episode “Sub Rosa” in which Dr. Crusher falls in love with her dead grandmother's candle ghost lover. We mention the character Geordi La Forge, who was born without sight but futuristic technology allows him to see. Phil's wonderful wife Beth mentioned that Deanna Troi's hair is not her real hair. This is the latest in a series of outrages along the lines of when she told him that Kiefer Sutherland is wearing a wig in the Lost Boys (which is partially true) and that Lynda Carter's butt was padded in Wonder Woman. Jake tried out the Harvey Wallbanger at Whitechapel, a London-themed steampunk-adjacent gin-centric cocktail bar in San Francisco. One of us claims that Galliano-- the liquor most known for its use in the Harvey Wallbanger-- is also used to make a Sex On the Beach, but afterwords we couldn't find any recipes supporting that claim.

Phil and Jake rank bicycles, scatting (aka scat singing), and feeding cats like babies on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: We briefly discuss ventriloquism, including mention of Candice Bergen's father Edgar Bergen, who was an actor, comedian and Vaudeville and radio ventriloquist. He was a big star, bigger than it's possible to imagine someone being when his main thing is throwing his voice through a dummy that sits on his lap ON THE RADIO. Even on TV or movies it doesn't really make sense because all the sound comes from the same speaker so throwing his voice doesn't seem that impressive and editing can be done anyways. It just seems like the kind of thing that only would work in live performances but here we are! His show was on the radio for 20 years! Phil rode a bicycle across the USA from Yorktown, VA to Vallejo CA. He's a very private person and doesn't like to talk about it much unless you mention bikes, the USA, Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California or any of the geographical features therein. Jake rode a bike around the island of Losinj, Croatia. Jake refers to wearing a “turtle shell brace” after his bike accident, but it's maybe more commonly called a clamshell brace. Madison Square Garden is the World's Most Famous Arena. It sits on top of Penn Station between 7th and 8th Ave in Manhattan. It's sort of ugly and it replaced the old Penn Station which was an architectural marvel. We mention it because Phil notes that the original MSG was the site of many indoor bicycle races (and was actually on Madison Avenue which made a lot more sense).  Notable scatters discussed include Steven Tyler (of Aerosmith), David Lee Roth, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are Cleveland rappers who were signed and promoted by the late Eazy-E before his death. They were really influential in their sing-songy delivery (which you could hear in Crucial Conflict, Three Six Mafia & Nelly)  and their post Geto Boys "horrorcore" angle (similar to Gravediggaz). Their biggest successes were probably Crossroads, a meditation on death and First of the Month, a celebration of plenty. They once filme a video of their trip to Switzerland which was made to get Phil Collins to agree to let them sample him for their song Home. Here's the Bone Thugs sketch on Saturday Night Live that Jake mentions. MC Skat Cat was an animated cat that would rap in the early 90s. Most famously with Paula Abdul. Phil just listened to "Skat Strut" for the first time and enjoyed the Earth, Wind & Fire sample. “Scatman (ski-ba-bob-ba-dop-bop)” by Scatman John is not to be confused with Scatman Crothers. The Fu-Schnickens were a hip-hop trio that were very difficult to understand but nonetheless quite impressive because they rapped at double (maybe triple?) speed. Chip-Fu in particular was just incredible even if the speed of the words made you dizzy. I follow him on twitter but he just tweets at regular speed, sadly. As a white kid from rural California with zero cultural context, Phil didn't understand that I was hearing a Caribbean thing. Their Ring the Alarm samples the Tenor Saw classic. They're mostly remembered now for making Can We Rock with Shaquille O'Neal. Phil might have taken it too far to say Doo Wop music was scatting. The second half of "Sh-Booom" is a good example of what he was referring to though. “Heebie Jeebies” by Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five is, as of 2021, in the public domain. Phil's thinking we should make this our show's theme song. Both New Orleans and Queens can claim Louis Armstrong. He was from New Orleans but he moved to Corona, Queens (very close to where the Mets play) and lived there from 1943 until his death in 1971.  The Harder They Fall on Netflix features “Broader Than Broadway” by Barrington Levy, which is a fantastic song. We discuss “Panama” by Van Halen. Phil says that the lyrics to this song don't matter at all and they might as well be scatting. Here's that twitter thread of old paintings with people feeding cats like babies. How many shirtless men wearing elaborate angel wings, gold lamé shorts & furry cha-cha heels are really just actual angels? ALSO DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:Annie (1982 film) * Bernadette Peters * stolen bikes * the Golden Gate Bridge * the Marin Headlands * bike crashes * E-bikes * anti-diarrhea medicine * Dolly Parton * cats * beatboxing * Hank Williams' yodeling * saxophone in rock music * snare drums * glitter * Drumline * swaddling * Charmander * band-aids as fashion * Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure * Howard the Duck * Daylight Saving Time * CrocsBelow are the Top Ten and Bottom Top items on List of Every Damn Thing as of this episode (for the complete up-to-date list, go here).TOP TEN: Dolly Parton - person interspecies animal friends - idea sex - idea bicycles - tool Clement Street in San Francisco - location Prince - person It's-It - food Cher - person dogs - animal cats - animal BOTTOM TEN:210.

Phil and Jake are joined by EDT second-timer Dave Walsh (from Space Cadet, The Loved Ones & The Explosion) to rank dogs, cats and capybaras on the List of Every Damn Thing.Get Space Cadet's record “Lion On A Leash” on Wiretap Records, listen to them on Spotify, and follow them on Instagram (@space_cadet_band). And go to one of their upcoming shows!If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: We mention Dave's previous band The Explosion, which he was in with friends-and-guests-of-the-pod and guests Matt Hock and Andrew Black. But we somehow fail to mention The Loved Ones, which he was in with other friend-and-guest-of-the-pod (and other Dave) Dave Hause. We couldn't find an image of Jake's monkey-on-a-skateboard The Explosion t-shirt, but you should check out the other incredible artwork of Linas Garsys. Phil has a bestiary, which is a book about all animals, translated from Latin by T.H. White (who wrote The Sword in the Stone and a lot of other things). You can read the bestiary here. If you like dogs, Dave recommends the TV show Lucky Dog. Poochie from The Simpsons is a dog who rocks the telly. He's half Joe Camel and the third Fonzerelli. He's a kung-fu hippie from the Gangster City. He's a rapping surfer. You're the fool he pities. Here's the scene from Snatch that Jake refers to. Cats' eyes emit light rays. We don't know if this is because of science or because of magic. Probably both.  The CDC's FAQ on toxoplasmosis doesn't mention attraction to cats as a symptom, but it doesn't refute it either. Jake suspects the Batman Returns version of Selena Kyle aka Catwoman has toxoplasmosis. We talk about the 1980s cartoon Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats, which Phil only ever saw the second segment of growing up, because of the scheduling. The first segment was about Heathcliff doing the kind of things he does in the newspaper comic strip. The second segment was about a group of cats who lived in a junkyard, led by Riff Raff, an orange cat who wears a big white hat. In South America, guinea pigs are frequently eaten, and are called cuy, probably named after the sound they make. Phil mentions seeing them in the frozen food section at Trade Fair supermarket in Astoria Queens, NY. There was an escaped capybara in California, and friend-of-the-pod Victor made twitter for it. ALSO DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:Boston Terriers * dog training * Boxer dogs * cops * Cher * burritos * Pee-Wee Herman * Donald Duck * cat scratch fever * dog dicks * Maus by Art Spiegelman * EMTs * rats * goats * E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial * CharmanderBelow are the Top Ten and Bottom Top items on List of Every Damn Thing as of this episode (for the complete up-to-date list, go here).TOP TEN: Dolly Parton - person interspecies animal friends - idea sex - idea Clement Street in San Francisco - location Prince - person It's-It - food Cher - person dogs - animal cats - animal Pee-Wee Herman - fictional character BOTTOM TEN:207.

Phil and Jake are joined by returning guest Matt Hock (from Space Cadet & The Explosion) to rank In-N-Out Burger, and word mash-ups aka portmanteaus on the List of Every Damn Thing.Get Space Cadet's record “Lion On A Leash” on Wiretap Records, listen to them on Spotify, and follow them on Instagram (@space_cadet_band). And go to one of their upcoming shows!If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: In the episode, Phil talks about @tweakseason on TikTok. Phil doesn't have TikTok but he has a summary of @tweakseason's activities on his desk every Monday morning. Here's a youtube compilation it's in the genre of "guy walking around NYC". Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser is a book about fast food in America. We read it a long time ago but we remember it was heavy on the Carl's Jr. One of the last chapters is about how everything they just said about how bad the industry is doesn't really apply to In-N-Out - they pay their workers better, produce better quality food, etc. Shake Shack is a fast-casual hamburger chain based in NYC (which is now nationwide). According to Phil, the burger is better than In-N-Out but it costs three times as much.  We mention Taqueria Diana in Williamsburg again. Go there. Dick's is the place where the cool hang out. The swass like to play, and the rich flaunt clout. It's a burger place in Seattle. In an alternate universe it took off in popularity instead of In-N-Out. Sir Mix-A-Lot is a Seattle-based rapper and HAM radio enthusiast. Waffle House is an all-day breakfast chain based in the Southeast. When fights happen at Waffle House, they often end up on social media. Veggie Grill is a vegetarian fast food chain on the West Coast, as well as in New York and Massachusetts. It's pretty much wherever coastal elites like to be, and it's good food. Taco Time is a Mexican fast food chain in the western U.S., but not California. El Pollo Loco deserves to be ranked later. It's Phil's favorite fast-food chain. "Thighvertising" came up in Phil's search for portmanteaus. He admits Jake was right it should be called “adverthighsing”. James Joyce coined the term “Scandiknavery” in Finnegan's Wake'. It's pretty specific but we're looking forward to using it.  Phil thinks “pegacorn is” a bad one because "Winged Unicorn" just sounds better. Other portmanteaus discussed include “bodacious”, “throuple”, “guesstimate” and “chillax”. After plugging his own shows, Matt makes sure to plug our good friend Dave Hause's upcoming shows in November.

Cab, Howard the Duck, Judgement Night and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. Wazzup (1999) was a Budweiser ad directed by Drumline director Charles Stone III based on his own short film "true" which was based on a real event in his life.  Here's the Make 7… Up Yours commercial starring Orlando Jones. Malik is the drummer who Andrew recommends following on Instagram. We talk a bit about Washington D.C. go-go music, which is a regional musical style that never got the widespread recognition it deserves. Da' Butt by Experience Unlimited is probably the most well-known go-go song. We make reference to HBCUs. There are about 100 historically black colleges & universities in the US. Atlanta A&T is a fictional school. Morris Brown is a real college though and that's their band in the movie. We give props to the Judgement Night soundtrack. Jake was right that there's an Onyx / Biohazard collabo on it, but Andrew's right that it's not the song “Slam”. DuckTales is a Disney cartoon adventure show about Donald Duck's nephews and uncle going on adventures. The original 1980s run was heavily based on the 1950s comics that taught Phil how to read.

Phil & Jake welcome Nick G. to the show to deface the List of Every Damn Thing with graffiti.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Before recording this episode, Jake had the best onion ring of his life at Big Kel's in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Daphne & Velma is a live-action movie from 2018 about the two girls from Scooby-Doo solving mysteries without the dead weight of the dog and the two boys. I think it might be a prequel too since they're in high school and it's our understanding that they are college age in other depictions. Garfield Minus Garfield (Phil got the name wrong) was a series of photoshopped Garfield comics that removed Garfield from them. Hanna-Barbera was behind maybe half of all American-produced cartoons in the second  half of the 20th century. A lot of the studio's work was real trash although kids had no better choices back then so they have fond memories of it. We don't know how they didn't get sued for basing their cartoons so obviously on actual people. Fred Flintstone for example was based on Jackie Gleason. Vandals were a Germanic people living in late-Roman times who were characterized years later by renaissance and early-modern historians as being all about pointless destruction. Phil was wrong when he claimed that "Vandalism" was coined in Roman times, the term wasn't invented until the 1790s.  Hobo graffiti are glyphs that help hobos get by in the world.

Let's celebrate the musicians that Dylan celebrates. In this and in upcoming episodes of this series, you will hear the musicians that Dylan and his partner Eddie Gorodetsky played during the three-year/three season run of THEME TIME RADIO HOUR from 2006-2009 (including both an unbroadcast 101st episode, "Kiss," and a two-hour episode from 2020, "Whiskey"). And we do not beat around the bush: we start things off with the most-played musician in all of THEME TIME RADIO HOUR. In "20 Pounds of Headlines," we round up news from the world of Bob Dylan, including Dylan tour information, news of the return of GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY to Broadway on October 13th, and the American opening of RETROSPECTRUM, Dylan's first, five-decade-spanning retrospective of his visual art in Miami in November. In "Who Did It Better?" we ask you to tell us who did "I Can't Get You Off Of My Mind" better: Hank Williams with his original version from 1947 or Bob Dylan in 2000.

Phil, Jake and Jason are joined by Tiffa (Intermission podcast) to rank the classic sitcom The Golden Girls and anime on the List of Every Damn Thing.Keep up with Intermission on Instagram (@Intermission_podcast) & Twitter (@IntermissionPC). Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts!If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Jake is in unceded Pomo territory while recording the episode. Sitcoms are comedies where the characters carry over from episode to episode but are put in different situations like "Jack makes a date with two girls for the same night" type shit. We talk about a lot of sitcoms including The Golden Palace, All In the Family, Maude, Seinfeld, Empty Nest, Benson, The Facts of Life, Frasier, Married With Children and Designing Women (sadly there will be NO reboot). Adrienne Barbeau has come up a couple times in the history of Every Damn Thing already. She played Bea Arthur's daughter on Maude and was the voice of Catwoman on Batman: The Animated Series. Also she was in Swamp Thing, and Escape from New York. She often has a look on her face like she's smelling something foul. Mama's Family was a spinoff of some recurring sketches on the The Carol Burnett Show. Phil only ever saw this on TV as a kid when he was waiting for something else to start. The cheapness of the sets & production really stood out to him. Here's the pic of Bea Arthur in a sexy feather boa that we promised. We get a bit sidetracked with Fatty Arbuckle. The book Phil mentioned about him was I, Fatty by Jerry Stahl who also wrote Permanent Midnight which is in part about being a junkie while being a writer on the sitcom Alf. Here's Buster Keaton looking all sexy. Hentai is, generally speaking, pornographic anime. Pokemon is maybe the most popular anime there is in the US. Phil's kid loves it. Kiki's Delivery Service is a fantastic movie about a young witch trying to make her way in life. The voice of the cat in the English dub of it is Phil Hartmann's last role. The Little Mermaid is a Disney movie that's very short and came out the same year as Kiki's Delivery Service and really suffers in comparison. Other anime discussed include Sailor Moon, Ninja Scroll, My Neighbor Totoro and Princess Mononoke. Hanna-Barbera is the animation studio that created Scooby-Doo and many other cartoons, now owned by Warner Brothers. Their work in the 60s and 70s was usually pretty dull. It seemed like it was made by people who had contempt for their audience and maybe themselves. Here's the Kewpie ad mentioned by Jason. Hatsune Miku, Jake's one-time employer, is a Vocaloid software voicebank developed by Crypton Future Media, represented by a hologram of a 16-year-old girl with long, turquoise twintails. Jessica Rabbit is getting a Disneyland makeover.  Song of the South is buried deep in the Disney vault and it's impossible to imagine Disney ever releasing it, but here's a podcast detailing it's sordid past.  ALSO DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:Betty White * Rue McClanahan * Estelle Getty * The Star Wars Holiday Special * Lucille Ball * The Three Stooges * Shakira * anti-diarrhea medicine * Avatar: The Last Airbender * G.I.

If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: “Weird A.I.” Yankovich is an invention of Beth, Phil's wife. He's an artificial intelligence that does song parodies. We get into a lot of hologram talk. Here's a write-up of Jenni Rivera's hologram's appearance at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. And here's some info on the upcoming ABBA hologram show. The Tehachapi Loop is popular with railfans like Jake. We discuss fake train tunnels, and hate it when this happens. Here's the episode of Efrem's podcast Into the Weeds featuring Tommy Chong. “Barroom Buddies” by Clint Eastwood & Merle Haggard is a real thing! “Drinkenstein” is a song written by Dolly Parton (the current #1 on the List of Everything) & sung by Sylvester Stallone. It's from the movie Rhinestone which they starred in. We think we've gotten this wrong before in the past but for the record, Murphy Lee is not the guy who wears the Phantom of the Opera mask in the St. Lunatics. Murphy Lee and Kyjuan are the only members of the St Lunatics anyone can remember, and neither are the ones who wear the mask. That's Slo Down. He was a silent hypeman who ended up in a feud with Nelly because he felt he wasn't being paid properly. Here's YouTuber Linzor explaining her Band-Aid fashion. Hatless Slash is actually pretty common. Efrem surely meant to say John Schnieder when he was talking about John Davidson. In looking for a list of the most iconic mudflaps we learned that people seem to go with unadorned mudflaps nowadays.

You might have heard someone tell you to "Mind Your Own Business", but would Jesus ever say such a thing? Well, in this lesson, that is, in essence, what Jesus says, to the Apostle John. Apparently, someone was doing some work in God's Kingdom, and John told them to stop doing it, because they were from a different group. It's a lesson for all of us in this divisive world we live in, just about everyone is in a different group, and we all have our own opinions that we somehow feel obligated to state. Is that the Christian thing to do? Or not? Our lesson uses the parallel of an old Hank Williams song. Our scripture reading is from Mark 9:38-50. We also quote Romans 3:23.

Phil and Jake rank the emotional response known as the uncanny valley effect, and the city of Bend, Oregon on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Masahira Mori is a robot expert and professor (the ASIMO robot was designed by one of his students). It should never be doubted that Jake has read Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. The Final Fantasy movie is an oft-cited example of the uncanny valley effect. It's an animated movie made entirely with CGI, like a video game cut-scene, and audiences were unsettled by the creepy dead eyes.The Beowulf movie has a similar vibe. Pokemon of course doesn't go for photorealism, that's why it's universally beloved. In an episode of The Simpsons, Homer gets a pet lobster who looks to Homer like this, whereas other characters see the lobster like this. Boston Dynamics makes robots that move in human-like ways. There's a character in Ted Lasso played by Brett Goldstein (who just won an Emmy for the role). Many viewers thought this guy didn't exist and was a CGI creation. It seems ludicrous until you see this picture of his character, he looks like a FIFA video game character. Breath of the Wild is a Nintendo game that's beautiful but not photorealistic. It bypasses the uncanny valley. Star Wars tried CGI versions of Carrie Fisher and Peter Cushing in the same movie. It seems gross and scary to Phil (unlike C-3P0 and R2-D2). Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation was a real human actor deliberately playing a robot who seemed vaguely unnatural. Phil missed the point of any stories about him because he looked different. Charlie XCX is a pop star who's worked with PC Music which is a hard-to-explain collective / label that navigates the uncanny valley of music (if that exists) by making aggressively fake-sounding music and wallowing in artifice. The way she (or any public figure) manages her persona is tied up with UV-related ideas. In looking for a proper clip of her to link to we found this news story about how her record label is pushing her to be more "real" and she would prefer to be less real!  Drum machines are like this too. The 808 kick drum doesn't sound real, that's why it's better than some other more real-sounding synthesizers. Here's the biting dolls scene from Barbarella. The Polar Express is a deeply cursed movie and features an uncanny valley hall-of-fame performance by Steven Tyler as a scatting Christmas elf. The Matrix Reloaded had a big fight scene which had been promoted ahead of the release of the film but when the movie came out it was unsatisfying and weightless, and it didn't help that it came out around the same time as Kill Bill Vol. 1, which had a massive fight scene with real stakes and actual physicality. REI's headquarters is in Kent, WA (not Bend). While in Bend, Jake picked up a hazy IPA from Immersion Brewing. It paired pretty well with the Impossible Burger that he got from the Incred-A-Bowl food truck. Les Schwab was the founder of a chain of tire retailers in the Western US. Phil is probably conflating the permanent tire fire on the Simpsons with an event in the 90s in Oregon where there was a real tire fire and he assumed that because it involved tires and Oregon, it had something to do with Les Schwab. Our vague recollection of some sort of some kind of lava cave attraction near Bend was surely about the Lava River Cave.

Phil and Jake are joined by friend and fellow Ted-head Phoebe Assenza for a deep-dive discussion and ranking of Theodore Roosevelt on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).Make sure to check out Phoebe's Substack.SHOW NOTES: Phil claims his sister (and recent EDT guest) Alexa Green said dry-cleaning is a mutually-agreed upon lie that holds society together. Phil takes it a step further and claims that laundry detergent might not be real either. He knows for a fact that dryer sheets aren't real. Phoebe disagrees as a laundry-doer in humid and smelly New York.  Phil also says that peanuts should be marketed as the most crunchy form of peanut butter; peanuts become peanut butter once you chew them so they should be sold as a less messy form of peanut butter. Here's the History Vs. Theodore Roosevelt podcast that Jake listened to for show prep. The Strenuous Life is a speech in which T.R. said that “danger, hardship, and bitter toil… win the splendid triumph.” As a sickly kid, Roosevelt's father pushed him to challenge himself physically and it became the cornerstone of Teddy's persona — walking into danger like the Battle of San Juan Hill, choosing a rugged life in the Badlands rather than seeking comfort in New York after the death of his mother and wife on the same night.  William McKinley was assassinated by an anarchist. The guy who tried to assassinate Teddy Roosevelt said McKinley visited him in a dream and told him to do it.   The "Man in the Arena" speech is actually called “Citizenship in a Republic”. Roosevelt was a backer of the Simplified Spelling Board, who pushed to simplify spelling. Grave-robbing was a big deal before someone thought up donating your body to science. The Panama Canal was completed in 1914 (the Suez Canal was completed forty-five years earlier in 1869). Turns out it was actually TR's dad (TR senior) who was one of the founders of the American Museum of Natural History, not TR.  Lamarckian evolution, as we discussed, is a discredited idea of evolution where acquired characteristics are inherited. The classic example is a giraffe. Lamarck explained that a giraffe's neck is long because its ancestors stretched their necks to get leaves and passed the longer necks along to their descendants.

Guest Bio:“Montana isn't just where I live,” says Satsang's Drew McManus. “It's my heart, my soul. Along with my family, it's my everything.”It's little wonder, then, that the state played such a pivotal role in inspiring ‘All Right Now,' Satsang's extraordinary new album and debut release for venerated indie label Side One Dummy. Written and recorded during an extended hiatus from the road, the record finds McManus reconnecting with his western roots and exploring a whole new palette of sounds and textures, drawing on classic country and modern Americana to forge a joyful, rustic collection all about letting go and living in the moment. McManus produced the album himself, and while the songs here are certainly honest and deeply personal, they're written in a spiritual language that taps into something far more universal, something inherent in the human condition that binds us as brothers and sisters on a shared journey to find ourselves and our place in this world. The performances and arrangements are broad and spacious to match, reflecting the wide-open fields and soaring mountains that surrounded the band during the whirlwind recording process, and the result is a lush, organic collection fueled by acoustic guitars, fiddle, and pedal steel, a warm, inviting record that hints at everything from Uncle Tupelo and The Jayhawks to Gregory Alan Isakov and The Head and the Heart as it meditates on the power—and the pull—of home.“I've been on the road for the last five or six years straight,” says McManus, “so being back in Montana for a whole year was a big change. Having that kind of uninterrupted time at home helped me fall back in love with songwriting in a whole new way.”Though McManus was born in Montana, he actually spent much of his formative years in Des Moines, IA. His childhood was troubled, to say the least, marked by physical abuse at home and a nose for trouble that surrounded him. Music offered an escape, though, and McManus found solace in the punk rock and hip-hop he discovered through his love of skateboarding. Brash and aggressive, the songs were a far cry from the country tunes his mother played on endless loop around the house.“She loved the old stuff like Buck Rogers and Hank Williams,” McManus recalls, “but she was really into that mid-to-late-nineties sound, guys like Garth Brooks and Randy Travis and Travis Tritt. I didn't get it at the time, but she always used to tell me, ‘Someday, when you're older, you'll come back to this music.'”Desperate to escape his surroundings and convinced that he'd wind up in jail like his brother if he stayed, McManus left home as a teenager and moved in with his older sister in Chicago. His first few years there played out like one long party, but as time wore on, it became apparent that the party was spiraling out of control. “It was clear to everyone else around me that I was an alcoholic and a drug addict,” McManus explains. “Eventually, my friends just sat me down and said, ‘We think you're going to die if you keep this up.'”So McManus packed his bags and headed back to Montana, where his biological father worked at a rehab clinic. The road to recovery was a long and arduous one, but McManus eventually got clean and sober, fell in love, and married the woman of his dreams. For the first time in a long time, life was good, and yet it still felt like something was missing, like some fundamental building block of his personality was being neglected. It wasn't until McManus found himself on a backpacking trek in the Himalayas that the final piece of the puzzle fell into place. “I realized on that trip that you only get one shot at life,” says McManus, “and if you've got a chance to utilize your talents and follow your dreams, then you've got to go for it. It gave me this renewed sense of purpose, and within a week of getting back home, I started playing shows and launched the band.”McManus filled notebook after notebook on that Himalayan journey, and the material would eventually go on to form the basis of Satsang's breakout 2016 debut, ‘The Story of You.' Steeped in reggae, hip-hop, and world music, the album was an uplifting affirmation that connected with fans around the world, racking up roughly 15 millions streams on Spotify alone. McManus and his bandmates returned a year later with their similarly successful sophomore effort, ‘Pyramid(s),' which hit #1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart and #2 on iTunes, and pushed their sound even further with 2019's ‘Kulture,' which incorporated a wider swath of influences from Motown to Tom Petty. Relentless road warriors, the group built a devoted following one night at a time, sharing stages with the likes of Michael Franti & Spearhead and Nahko and Medicine for the People as they worked their way up from bars and clubs to massive festivals.

Phil is maybe thinking of Fort Ross when he tells the story of Russian settlers being chased off by gophers. Here's the article where Jake got most of his information about Zima. Here's a TV ad for Crystal Pepsi from 1993 featuring “Right Now” by Van Halen. We talk about a lot of other beverages in the episode, including malt liquor, White Claw, craft beer, Mike's Hard Lemonade, New York Seltzer, hard kombucha, non-alcoholic sparkling water, cold brew shandy and apple juice. As for the sources of info on hard seltzer sales dropping, which Phil says on-mic he'd put in the show notes... Phil mostly half-read headlines and parroted them, and is pretending he knows what he's talking about. Here's a story that goes into it a little bit. Journalists seem to want the trend to be over but maybe it's just a permanent part of our lives now like constant wood smoke in the fall. The website for Biergarten in San Francisco is very basic. They seem to be closed until the pandemic is really really over, which is weird because it's an all-outdoor space. Casa Bonita in Denver seems to still be currently closed as well, but they are offering free backstage tours. The restaurant has recently been purchased by the creators of South Park who, like Jake, are from Colorado. In England diarrhea is spelled "diarrhoea" It's awful just bottom tier spelling. The Bristol stool scale is the standard method for stool. “The Green, Green Grass of Home” is a bona fide standard, mostly in the realm of Country Music. The Tom Jones version is the one Alexa remembers best. Jake and Phil are more familiar with Merle Haggard's take of the song. Jake correctly surmises that George Jones recorded the song as well. It has also been performed by Porter Wagoner, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charley Pride, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, Elvis Presley, Gram Parsons & The Flying Burrito Brothers, Kenny Rogers, Nick Cave and many others.

Phil and Jake rank the posthumously-released Bruce Lee film Game of Death, food poisoning and triangle pizza on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Throughout the episode, Jake mistakenly refers to the movie production company Golden Harvest as “Golden Era” which is actually the name of a vegan Chinese restaurant in San Francisco which has been around since before veganism went mainstream. As Phil mentions, the recent Star Wars movie The Rise of Skywalker was produced after Carrie Fisher died. They spliced together various outtakes from the previous movies to make it look like she was in the movie. It didn't really work, how could it? Not much else in the movie did either although one exception was the chimpanzee with a welding torch. We mention Rudolph Valentino. Here's some details about his death & funeral.  Jake talks about the documentary Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey. Skip to timestamp 58:30 to watch the original Game of Death footage in full. Colleen Camp has had a full Hollywood career including roles in Clue, Apocalypse Now and a couple of Police Academy movies. She was also in Smokey & the Bandit 3, which like Game of Death involved extensive re-shooting for the final product. The original was meant to have Jackie Gleason in both the roles of Smokey and the Bandit, but after the promotional material elicited negative reactions, they re-shot the Bandit scenes with Jerry Reed. Phil started watching The Suicide Squad but it was too much gore for him. He's not prudish about that stuff but it's not fun for him anymore. The Seven Little Fortunes was a group of child performers who included Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung. Chan has said they'd get whipped if they didn't act right. Shreddies are similar to Wheat Chex (Phil said Triscuits). Their Diamond Shreddies campaign is very clever and is very similar to Oops! all Berries but with more world-building.  When Phil referred to “Oops! All Burnt Cheez-Its” of course he meant "extra-toasty Cheez-Its". They're the most requested flavor apparently. What we'd like is if they maintained some kind of fictional reason for why they were extra toasty like Oops! All Berries. Maybe something like "Dammit, we burned all the Cheez-Its!" Sector pizza is what most people (except Jake) probably are thinking of when they say triangle pizza. It's a circular pizza that's been cut through the center four times at different angles so that each slice is straight on two sides and curved along the edge. Circle pizza is a pizza that's just a circle with no cuts made into it or I guess if you took a pizza-cutter and cut circles out of a another shape of pizza. The above two notes were written by a malevolent artificial intelligence, and as such are not part of Every Damn Thing canon. The current entry was written by a benevolent artificial intelligence so it's cool. Pizza in a Cup is from the best scene in The Jerk. It's pizza in a cup that Bernadette Peters and Steve Martin eat. It's sold at the carnival. At one time there were two competing Pizza in a Cup businesses at the carnival, until one drove the other out of business. ALSO DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:Greek & Roman mythology * Enter the Dragon * Chuck Norris * Way of the Dragon * Bowfinger * Hong Kong cinema * Police Story * metatextuality * Kareem Abdul Jabbar * basketball * video games * Brandon Lee * violence in movies * radio edits * “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz * Spaceballs * Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey * Prometheus * Sisyphus * Jessica Rabbit * broken glass * capitalism * daylight saving time * Josta * Cadbury Creme Eggs * Lincoln Logs * carpets * square pizza * geometry * Rod Laver shoesBelow are the Top Ten and Bottom Top items on List of Every Damn Thing as of this episode (for the complete up-to-date list, go here):TOP TEN: Dolly Parton - person interspecies animal friends - idea sex - idea Clement Street in San Francisco - location Prince - person It's-It - food Cher - person Pee-Wee Herman - fictional character Donald Duck - fictional character Hank Williams - person BOTTOM TEN:180.

Phil, Jake and Jason rank radio edits (of songs), and vinyl records (which usually contain songs) on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Jason sings the praises of Kool-Aid pickles in the episode. Phil & Jake are sure Kool-Aid pickles are good but they look like sea slugs. Phil was right that Vincent Price's spoken-word part on Michael Jackson's “Thriller” didn't appear on the song's 7” single. It did appear in the music video, though. Phil talks about a song by Pink that refers to satellite radio. He had the artist wrong; it was the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow". Radio stations censored the word "satellite" and we think it was just them flexing. There are three versions of “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz: the original one with explicit lyrics, the clean radio edit, and the Bay Area Ballas Remix.    "Get Low" by Lil Jon& The East Side Boyz got heavy radio play using an edit that had a lot of profanity taken out, but they got to say "skeet" (which is slang for ejaculation) many times. Lil' Jon also apparently ran a label called Skeet Skeet Records. Phil mentions that the radio edit of “Country Grammar” by Nelly really helped Nelly crossover cause it was built on a children's singalong although the song was talking about a drive-by shooting with an Armsel Striker "Street Sweeper" which is an automatic shotgun. In the episode, Phil doesn't know the full name of the weapon but he had the right idea. Phil talks about the end of the first act of Scarface which is his favorite part of the movie. We talk about “Money For Nothing” by Dire Straits. The guy from Dire Straits also wrote “Private Dancer” by Tina Turner. Can you play a gold record? Most gold or platinum records are colored vinyl and you can play them but, like Phil speculates, it's usually a random record that's been painted so if you buy Bruce Springsteen's Human Touch platinum record and play it, it might be Legs by ZZ Top. Taylor Swift's album Evermore is the one Jake talks about but can't remember the name.

Phil made an effort, but couldn't figure out why The Great White Fleet was white. In the episode, Jake refers to the yeast that people put on movie theater popcorn as “brewers yeast”. Some might call this “nutritional yeast” which is technically different but often used in the same way. Nutritional yeast is probably more popular for popcorn these days. Martinelli's uses the apple-shaped juice containers that Phil loves. The time where Ice-T drank apple juice in Evil E's car is recounted in his song “Midnight”. Jackie Gleason played Buford T. Justice in Smokey & the Bandit. That movie and Cannonball Run both rely on speed limits for their plot. Here's El Rocketeer from In Living Color. It's not especially funny.  Phil brings up people that are sexually excited by Tony the Tiger, What's happened is more complicated than what Phil says. Kellogg's is constantly baiting furries by putting sexy Tony the Tiger content out in the world and then acting shocked when they get worked up about it. We think for a lot of furries, Tony the Tiger was their gateway into being a furry in the first place so it really resonates. Here's a summary by the journalists at Huffington Post.

Phil and Jake are joined by returning guest "Million Dollar" Matt Hock (from Space Cadet & The Explosion) to rank ice cream trucks and the New York City borough of Brooklyn on the List of Every Damn Thing.Get Space Cadet's record “Lion On A Leash” on Wiretap Records, listen to them on Spotify, and follow them on Instagram (@space_cadet_band). Maybe even see them play live.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Here's the classic Eddie Murphy ice cream truck bit that taught us everything we know. Mister Softee is a soft-serve truck that drives around in the mid-Atlantic states. While trying to explain the business benefits of soft-serve, Phil refers to the movie The Founder, which is about McDonalds. One of the central issues in the movie is the original founders of McDonalds want to have real ice cream shakes but storing ice cream is very expensive due to the refrigeration. Soft serve ice cream is much cheaper because it doesn't need to be refrigerated while in transit or storage. A meager amount of research leads us to the stance that trucks (aka lorries) are different from vans. The racist version of “Turkey in the Straw” that Phil refers to was recorded in 1916, just a few years before Harry Burt created the first ice cream truck. So it follows that this version may be the one people knew in the early days of ice cream truckin'. Does sound travel further in warmer weather? There are scientists who will say it travels faster in the summer heat and humidity, but that it travels further in the winter. We think it's mostly due to having windows open in the summer. Does ice cream sell better on rainy days? This is some purely anecdotal BS that Phil heard in grade school from a guy who worked at an ice cream shop, and has accepted as the truth. He has no documented proof for this. He looked online but has found nothing that backs it up. When Jake talks about the melody from “Ice Cream Man” by Dru Down (featuring Luniz), he's talking about the main part of the song, not the intro featuring “Pop Goes the Weasel”. A few years after this song came out, Master P released a song by the same name (with a similar intro), but it's not nearly as catchy. Another song by a Bay Area rapper apparently played by some ice cream trucks is “Ice Cream” by Andre Nikatina, which is pretty much just a “Turkey In the Straw” remix. Here's the scene from Friday where the ice cream truck is used as a front for a drug dealer. Western Beef is a mid-Atlantic supermarket chain whose mascot is a cactus in a cowboy hat. Their old CEO had mafia ties. The location Phil was thinking about is at 44 Empire Blvd by the park. Fud is a brand of hot dogs from Mexico. Fuddhism is a restaurant with a goofy name in Truckee, CA. Junior's Cheesecake is a place where Matt likes to urinate. Christie's Jamaican Patties is now closed. It's described as beloved in the linked article so you know it wasn't just Phil that liked it. Taqueria Diana in Williamsburg is an outstanding place to get Mexican food (and mezcal). If you're hungry and in Brooklyn, go there. In fact, if you're anywhere in New York City, go there. The Williamsburg location is the best. Here's the EDT episode featuring Efrem Schulz where he helped us rank “Weird Al” Yankovic over Bruce Springsteen.

That's right Moody and myself are heading back out on the road and this time we're bringing Logan to carry our shit instead of us lugging everyone else's shit! Why are we heading out on tour you ask? Well it's because we are doing a tour of haunted music and theater venues throughout the world! This is an episode we've been wanting to do for a while especially because we've been to quite a few of these places! There's even one in our home town! Like we have at that certain Cleveland venue, we're sure some of our listeners have spent a ton of their time at some of the venues on the list. This is gonna be a fun one for us so hopefully you guys love it too! First up we've got a big one that will be on every list of haunted venues. The House Of Blues in Chicago. So the history of the building took a bit to find because every search for the house of blues in any city comes up with the main house of blues page but with a little digging we found some info on the building's history. The House of Blues is part of a complex called The Marina City complex. The Marina complex is also known as the Corn cob apparently, and looking at it… You can see why. If you're listening in Chicago and are like "what the fuck, nobody calls it that", will remember our mantra.. Don't blame us, blame the internet… Although we did find that reference in a couple spots. The Marina is a mix of residential condos and commercial buildings built between 1961-1968. The complex consists of two 587-foot, 65-story apartment towers, a 10-story office building which is now a hotel, and a saddle-shaped auditorium building originally used as a cinema. When finished, the two towers were both the tallest residential buildings and the tallest reinforced concrete structures in the world. The complex was built as a "city within a city", featuring numerous on-site facilities including a theater, gym, swimming pool, ice rink, bowling alley, stores, restaurants, and, of course, a marina. WLS-TV (ABC Channel 7) transmitted from an antenna atop Marina City until the Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower) was completed. Marina City was the first post-war urban high-rise residential complex in the United States and is widely credited with beginning the residential renaissance of American inner cities. These days the complex is home to the Hotel Chicago, 10pin bowling lounge, and several restaurants including… You fucking guessed it... Dick's Last Resort bitches!!! Oh and also the complex is home to the house of blues. The house of blues was built in the shell of the cinema which was out of use for quite some time. The story is that the hob is haunted by the spirit of a little girl that died due to an illness. There are many reports of weird things happening. The most circulated story seems to be that of a little boy who was playing with some of his toys toys. As he was playing he stepped away for a moment and when he came back he saw a little girl playing with his toys. She asked him if he'd like to play with her. FUCK THAT SHIT!!!! The little boy screamed and the girl vanished. Oddly enough, I did find a comment on one website from a man named Skyler seeming to corroborate this story. The comment reads as follows:              " This can not be… no way… I have performed there 2 times. once was in 2013, and there was a boy in the back playing with his cars. a few minutes after he screamed and started to cry. I was feeling bad,, but this can't be him… also know that in 2015 in march i had another performance and all the lights turned off. This is too creepy."   Was this the same boy that the story is referring too? Who knows. We also found several comments from people staying in what we assume is the hotel Chicago as it's in the complex and pretty much right next to the house of blues. There's comment also claim the hotel is haunted. One of the claims says this:            "It's haunted!!! I saw a middle aged/older woman (dressed in clothing from a period long ago) in my room when I stayed there in 1999/2000. I woke in the early morning to see a woman staring at me. I went through a rational thought process of it being my female business colleague (who stayed in a separate room) and I thought, oh well she can sleep in the other bed (it was a double room & I was in the bed furthest away from the front door) and then quickly snapped out of it and said to myself she has her own room why would she be in my room, I opened my eyes again and that's when I could see it was a woman clearly (w/ angry face) staring at me. I then thought this is a stranger/intruder in my room – I laid there with my eyes just open enough to see – she was there staring at me & she still didn't look happy. I laid there thinking of what to do – I decided I was going to reach and turn the light on and then charge her or run after her when she ran for the door (fortunately, there was a switch right next to the bed). HOWEVER, when I reached for the light and turned it on she was gone. This is what makes this story interesting — I called the front desk and simply asked, ‘had anything significant ever happened at the site of the hotel' (b/c as the person above points out, its not an old or historic looking building (e.g. PreWar). I asked another question that any tourist could have just asked (I don't recall what it was right now). She said immediatley, “No, why did you see a ghost?” My response was, yea, I saw a ghost, I'm in my twenties and not some nut job.” I asked if anyone else had ever reported seeing a ghost and she said, “No.” Anyway, when I met up with my colleague, she could tell I was shaken up and I was pretty pale (like “I had seen a host.”). My story has never changed in all this time. I did stay at the hotel 1 other time after (not in the same room) & didn't see anything – but I slept with the bathroom light on… Scary & Cool experience for sure!"   Sounds spooky!    Next on our list of haunted venues we are heading to Milwaukee! Which is actually pronounced meely waukay, which is Algonquin for the good land. Now the Rave is amazing for several reasons: first it's the location of one of Moody's favorite tour stories which also involves Jon and our friend Brad from Voudoux.  2: it's huge and creepy as shit. 3: the pool... The Rave/Eagles Club is a 180,000 square foot, seven-level, live entertainment complex in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The building contains eight independent clubs with capacities ranging from 400 to 3500. The Eagles Ballroom is the building's showpiece, featuring a 25,000 square feet (2,300 m2) oval wooden dance floor, originally installed when the building was constructed, in addition to a large, old-fashioned domed ceiling and a stage on one side. Originally a ballroom, it has hosted everything from boxing matches to concerts to ethnic dances. The ballroom head hosted huge acts ranging from Bob Dylan to Green day, from the grateful dead to slayer and of course none other than Lil Pump.    Along with the eagles ballroom, the building houses the Rave hall, The eagles hall, the Rave bar, The Rave craft beer lounge, The penthouse lounge, and the eagles club.  Since its construction in 1926, the Eagles Club has known several incarnations. Prominently among them, it housed the Fraternal Order of the Eagles, a notable organization whose considerable impacts on America's cultural landscape remain in effect today.   In 1939, the idea of using the building for music presentations took hold, reinventing its purpose. The grand ballroom became a popular venue for big band music, such as band leaders Guy Lombardo and Glen Miller and their orchestras. Soon, other types of music, theatre and performing arts also offered shows and concerts in the large, elegant ballroom; from 1939 through the mid-sixties. Comedians like Bob Hope and Red Skeleton did stand-up comedy. In 1959, people who bought a $1.50 ticket to the Winter Dance Party, were treated to the music of Buddy Holly and the Crickets, Big Bopper, Dion and the Belmonts, and Richie Valens. This would be the last show for buddy Holly before he died. In 1964, The Eagles Club had its first rock concert, with the Dave Clark Five performing on the ballroom stage. The 1970s brought even more famous groups and people, such as Eric Clapton, Crosby, Stills and Nash and other rising rock stars.When the Athletic Club was closed, a homeless men's shelter opened up temporarily in the basement area, providing shelter for the destitute which is life-saving during the freezing winter months. By the late 1980s, The Eagles Club was in a state of disrepair and The Eagle Club put it out on the real estate market, after getting it listed on The National Register of Historic Places, in 1986.  In late 1992, the Eagles Club was rescued when it was bought by Wauwatosa businessman Anthony J. Balestrieri and his wife, Marjorie, who performed in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. They began the long process of restoring the historic beauty of the elegant ballroom and interior art, as well as the outside facade. They also restored and renovated other areas turning the building into the multi venue building it is today.    We wanted to include this history because: A. We love the history of places like this and B. It shows how many things this building way used for and how many people have passed through the building. We all know where there tons of history there tends to be ghost stories!    Let's get into the spooky shit! Remember the pool we mentioned earlier… Well at one point a 17 year old boy had a fucking heart attack and died in the pool. Later, at least two more children would die in the pool. This would ultimately cause the closure of the athletic club.  Also the man who ran the homeless shelter was said to be extremely cruel and abusive to the men staying there.    The basement area which is the home of the former men's shelter, is one of the more haunted areas. The shelter manager mentioned earlier is thought to be the reason behind the heavy negative energy felt there. Cold spots are often felt by staff in the late hours after closing. Shadow people have often been reported by staff as well as band members packing up after a show.    Next is the pool area, which we've seen and it's fucking creepy. A little girl is said to roam around the area. People have heard her laughter and have said her presence can bring a sense of dread. Staff have said they have heard shuffling footsteps and have smelled a strong odor of bleach in the pool area.    In the boiler room under the pool, a former employee still hangs and he doesn't like people in his area. "Jack" was once recorded telling a group on a ghost hunt to "get out, get out now" Apparently, you can find a video of this on YouTube, we'll try and find it to post on our page.   The ballroom has had its share of apparitions hanging around during sound checks and after shows when everyone has left. An employee told a story of when he was standing on the floor of The Eagles Ballroom, making sure that the people going to the roof patio didn't “get lost” and go into the Eagles Ballroom by design.  He said that one of his fellow workers had seen what they thought was a man, standing in one of the second floor boxes located above the Eagles Ballroom. He called security and when they approached this person, he ran down the aisle but disappeared before the staff person that was behind him and the security person cutting off his escape could try to grab him.    One other common theme is people hearing either happy laughing children or sad crying children. Some staff have stated they've seen entities of children playing in groups.    We've been here.. This place is awesome. Also another fun tidbit… not to far away from the Rave is the ambassador hotel. Which of you're up on your serial killers, you know is the place where Jeffrey Dahmer killed his first victim in Milwaukee. Steven Tuomi was Jeffrey Dahmer's first victim in Milwaukee. Dahmer met Tuomi in September of 1987. At the time, Dahmer was out on probation after molestation charges of a minor. The two men spent the night together drinking heavily and visiting multiple bars. Later that night, they ended up in a room together in the Ambassador, room 507, which is a room some Dahmer historians have requested to stay in. Dahmer killed Toumi while he was in a drunken stupor. Upon waking up to find Tuomi dead, Dahmer put the body in a suitcase and took it to his grandmother's house where he was living. In the basement, he acted out necrophiliac desires and then dismembered the body. Supposedly when Dahmer awoke to find Tuomi dead, the body was in an awkward position hanging off the side of the bed. Some visitors have reported instances of waking up to discover their partner in a similarly awkward position.   Visitors to room 507 have reported a variety of experiences, such as a heaviness to the room that they can't quite explain. Some people get woken up in the middle of the night by odd circumstances. There's an extra little bit for ya!!!   Info on the Hauntings and most of the historical facts on the Rave was taken from an excellent article on hauntedhouses.com   Next up we're gonna head across the pond, so to speak. We're heading to London and the famous Royal Albert Hall! This place has a long and rich history behind it. The Royal Albert Hall was built on what was once the Gore estate, at the centre of which stood Gore House. The three acre estate was occupied by political reformer William Wilberforce between 1808-1828 and subsequently occupied between 1836-1849 by the Countess of Blessington and Count D'Orsay.   After the couple left for Paris in May 1851, the house was opened as the ‘Universal Symposium of All Nations', a restaurant run by the first celebrity chef, Alexis Soyer, who planned to cater for the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park.   After the exhibition and following the advice of Prince Albert, Gore House and its grounds were bought by the Exhibition's Royal Commission to create the cultural quarter known as Albertopolis. A complex of public Victorian buildings were developed to house exhibits from the Great Exhibition and to further the study of art, science and industry. On May 20, 1867 7,000 people gathered under a purpose-built marquee to watch Queen Victoria lay the Hall's red Aberdeen granite foundation stone, which today can be found underneath K stalls, row 11, seat 87 in the main auditorium. The Queen announced that “It is my wish that this Hall should bear his name to whom it will have owed its existence and be called The Royal Albert Hall of Arts and Sciences”, as a 21 gun salute was heard from Hyde Park and a trumpet fanfare from HM Life Guards sounded. By December 1870 construction of the Hall had moved on so much that HM Queen Victoria and her daughter Princess Beatrice visited the Hall to listen to the acoustics.   Almost three months later, on 25 February 1871, the Hall's first concert was held to an audience for 7,000 people comprising the workmen and their families, various officials and the invited public. Amateur orchestra, The Wandering Minstrels, played to test the acoustics from all areas of the auditorium.    This place has been running as a venue for 150 years! Again… History breeds ghosts and Hauntings! There's so much history in this building that we are not going to be able to include but please check out the official website for the royal Albert Hall to really drive into the history of this place. You won't be sorry you did. We gave you the beginnings to show how long this place has been around. We're gonna get right into the spooky shit though!    On 13 July 1930 the Spiritualist Association rented the Royal Albert Hall for a seance for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, following the death of the Sherlock author on 7 July.   Conan Doyle was a spiritualist and believed in the existence beyond the grave. Upon his death 10,000 people gathered expectantly in the Hall to watch a medium take to the stage, hoping to witness some supernatural activity and hear a message from Conan Doyle from the other side…          Lady Doyle: “Although I have not spoken to Arthur since he passed, I am certain that in his own time and his own way he will send a message to us” Time Magazine, 21 July 1930   Lady Conan Doyle took to the stage alongside members of his family, with a vacant chair on her right reserved for her late husband.Time Magazine, who attended the seance, reports:   ‘Mrs. Estelle Roberts, clairvoyant, took the stage. She declared five spirits were “pushing” her. She cried out their messages. Persons in the audience confirmed their validity. Suddenly Mrs. Roberts looked at Sir Arthur's empty chair, cried: “He is here.” Lady Doyle stood up. The clairvoyant's eyes moved as though accompanying a person who was approaching her. “He is wearing evening clothes,” she murmured. She inclined her head to listen. A silent moment. Her head jerked up. She stared at Lady Doyle, shivered, ran to the widow, whispered. Persons nearby could hear: “Sir Arthur told me that one of you went into the hut [on the Doyle estate] this morning. Is that correct?” Lady Doyle, faltering: “Why, yes.” She beamed. Her eyes opened widely. The clairvoyant to Lady Doyle: “The message is this. Tell Mary [eldest daughter]…' Time Magazine, 21 July 1930   At this the audience rose in a clamor, and the great organ of the Hall began to peal, the noise drowning out the answer of Mrs Roberts.   But what was the message delivered to Lady Doyle that night? Did the ghost of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle really visit the Royal Albert Hall on that night in 1930?   Seances are always fun and definitely work as we found out...yea...right….   Here's some more stories taken straight from the RAH website!   THE GIRLS Beneath the Door 6 foyer, in the carpeted basement area, there is one spot where two young women, known as ‘the girls', briefly appear each  November 2nd a little before 2am, when the building is almost deserted, except for some security staff.   Over the years, several staff members reported hearing ‘the girls' laughing, and seeing their animated and excited silhouettes appear, clothed in the fashion of slightly risqué Victorian ladies (extravagant long dark dresses embellished with lace from neck to bodice, with many ruffles, especially around the sleeves and hem, and their hair styled in cottage-loaf buns with ringlets hanging over their ears). The Duty Security Incident Book indicates that there had been appearances by ‘the girls' for the three years prior to 1991. They have been seen passing across the foyer space, which is bounded by double doors at each end, leading on one side to the staff canteen (where we still eat today) and on the other to the kitchen corridor, and then disappear. That is why some believe that ‘the girls' may be responsible for unexplained accidents, tappings and footsteps that occur behind locked doors late at night in the kitchens. Assistants Chefs, who have to clean the kitchen every night after use, often used to hear noises and have been frightened whilst in that area.    FATHER WILLIS Whenever restoration work is carried out on our organ, its original constructor Henry Willis, fondly nicknamed ‘Father Willis', returns as a stooped ghost wearing a black skull cap. When the organ was being reconstructed in 1924, workmen saw a little old man walk down the stairs late one afternoon. On returning to their workshop and relating the facts, their foreman asked what the man was wearing. When told that he was donning a black skull cap, the foreman decided it was the ghost of Father Willis, the original builder of the organ, long since dead, who would not approve of the alterations being undertaken. Since then there have been many reports of a sudden cold atmosphere in the area behind the organ.   When interviewed in 2018, Michael Broadway, the Hall's organ custodian was asked if he had ever seen signs of the legendary ghost of Henry Willis. He answered: “I remember the organ builder Clifford Hyatt telling me about this over forty years ago. The tuner […] was making the final visit of the Willis contract before the Harrison & Harrison rebuild in the 1920s. When he got up on to the Great passage board he saw Father Willis there saying ‘They shan't take my organ from me'. A lovely story, but I haven't seen him. There are many questions I would ask him and hopefully have his approval of the way I look after this instrument. Perhaps he has no reason to be disturbed.”    THE MAN IN WHITE During a Jasper Carrott comedy event in May 1990, the Duty Manager was ordered to clear the Middle Choir seats and to post a Steward at either end to avoid anyone entering as it is very distracting for a performer to have people walking across the back of the stage during the show. That's why a very angry Stage Manager demanded on radio to know why there was someone crossing the stage. The description was of a man dressed in white, walking oddly as if on drugs. The Stewards insisted no one had passed them and on further investigation no one except Jasper Carrott was onstage, but several people had seen the figure cross the stage from left to right.   THE VICTORIAN COUPLE A staff member during the 2000s reported having seen a couple in Victorian clothing walk across the second tier near to Door Six and vanish into a box. As a venue whose history is so closely tied to the Victorian times, this didn't seem particularly odd (people dress up sometimes…)   But in 2011, a Head Steward was finishing off his shift one evening and had made sure that all members of the public had left the second tier. On going downstairs into the auditorium, he noticed a couple sitting in the box so he returned to the second tier but found no one in the box. He assumed they had left while he was on his way back, so once again he returned to the auditorium… Only to see them again. So he went back to the second tier, and that's when he heard the couple chattering. He assumed they were in the box but on opening the door, there was no one there.   There are several more accounts on their website and tons and tons of stories all over the web about experiences at the historical venue. It sounds like it's one crazy place!!!   We've got a couple more for you guys.                Next up is another club we've been too, the Masquerade in Atlanta. The Masquerade features three indoor venues with capacities ranging from 300 to 1000, appropriately named Heaven, Hell and Purgatory.  The Masquerade was founded in 1988 at the historic DuPre Excelsior Mill, a former excelsior mill at 695 North Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood. The venue had both indoor and outdoor concert space. It was sold in 2006 and moved in late November 2016 after it was made part of a new mixed-use development called North + Line. The building was designated as historic by the city and all of the original parts will be saved through adaptive reuse. The masquerade had hosted tons of national and local acts from cannibal corpse to the greatest entertainer in history, Weird Al Yankovic.     This night club is said to be visited by the spirits who died in fire and tuberculosis outbreaks long ago, both of which killed several members of the building's former staff. Apparitions have been seen and unexplained footsteps have been reported.One popular story is that of a large and tall black man who is always seen walking around the nightclub. The staff believes that it is this man who turns the musical amplifiers every night.   The staff has also reported hearing footsteps from unidentified sources, as well as cold spots all throughout the building. Horrifying screams can also be heard coming from the back of the stairs even when there is no one there. They believe that the screams come from the young woman who died in a freakish accident in the nightclub. Nowadays, there are rumors that real vampires come to the nightclub and even live there.  Some people believe that this rumor has been spread to promote business as vampires have suddenly become very popular.   Next up were heading to Nashville and a place the Moody had been to, but not for music, for the national beard and mustache competition. He did not place unfortunately. The auditorium opened as the Union Gospel Tabernacle in 1892. Its construction was spearheaded by Thomas Ryman, a Nashville businessman who owned several saloons and a fleet of riverboats.When Ryman died in 1904, his memorial service was held at the tabernacle. During the service, it was proposed the building be renamed Ryman Auditorium, which was met with the overwhelming approval of the attendees. The building was originally designed to contain a balcony, but a lack of funds delayed its completion. The balcony was eventually built and opened in time for the 1897 gathering of the United Confederate Veterans, with funds provided by members of the group. As a result, the balcony was once called the Confederate Gallery.[5] Upon the completion of the balcony, the Ryman's capacity rose to 6,000. A stage was added in 1901 that reduced the capacity to just over 3,000. Though the building was designed to be a house of worship – a purpose it continued to serve throughout most of its early existence – it was often leased to promoters for nonreligious events in an effort to pay off its debts and remain open. In 1904, Lula C. Naff, a widow and mother who was working as a stenographer, began to book and promote speaking engagements, concerts, boxing matches, and other attractions at the Ryman in her free time.  Naff gained a reputation for battling local censorship groups, who had threatened to ban various performances deemed too risqué. In 1939, Naff won a landmark lawsuit against the Nashville Board of Censors, which was planning to arrest the star of the play Tobacco Road due to its provocative nature. The court declared the law creating the censors to be invalid W.C. Fields, Will Rogers in 1925, Charlie Chaplin, Bob Hope with Doris Day in '49, Harry Houdini in '24, and John Philip Sousa (among others) performed at the venue over the years, earning the Ryman the nickname, "The Carnegie Hall of the South". The Ryman in its early years also hosted Marian Anderson in 1932, Bill Monroe (from KY) and the Bluegrass Boys in '45, Little Jimmy Dickens in '48, Hank Williams in '49, The Carter Sisters with Mother Maybelle Carter in 1950, Elvis in '54, Johnny Cash in '56, trumpeter Louis Armstrong in '57, Patsy Cline in '60, Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs (bluegrass) in '64, and Minnie Pearl in '64. The Grand Ole Opry was first broadcast from the Ryman on June 5, 1943, and originated there every week for nearly 31 years thereafter. Every show sold out, and hundreds of fans were often turned away. During its tenure at Ryman Auditorium, the Opry hosted the biggest country music stars of the day and became a show known around the world. Melding its then-current usage with the building's origins as a house of worship, the Ryman got the nickname "The Mother Church of Country Music", which it still holds to this day. The last Opry show at the Ryman occurred the previous evening, on Friday, March 15. The final shows downtown were emotional. Sarah Cannon, performing as Minnie Pearl, broke character and cried on stage. When the plans for Opryland USA were announced, WSM president Irving Waugh also revealed the company's intent to demolish the Ryman and use its materials to construct a chapel called "The Little Church of Opryland" at the amusement park. Waugh brought in a consultant to evaluate the building, noted theatrical producer Jo Mielziner, who had staged a production at the Ryman in 1935. He concluded that the Ryman was "full of bad workmanship and contains nothing of value as a theater worth restoring." Mielziner suggested the auditorium be razed and replaced with a modern theater. Waugh's plans were met with resounding resistance from the public, including many influential musicians of the time. Members of historic preservation groups argued that WSM, Inc. (and Acuff, by proxy) exaggerated the Ryman's poor condition, saying the company was worried that attachment to the old building would hurt business at the new Opry House. Preservationists leaned on the building's religious history and gained traction for their case as a result. The outcry led to the building being added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. Following the departure of the Opry, the Ryman sat mostly vacant and deteriorating for nearly 20 years, as the neighborhood surrounding it continued to see the increasing effects of urban decay.  In 1986, as part of the Grand Ole Opry 60th-anniversary celebration, CBS aired a special program that featured some of the Opry's legendary stars performing at the Ryman. While the auditorium was dormant, major motion pictures continued to be filmed on location there, including John Carpenter's Elvis (1979), Coal Miner's Daughter (1980 – Loretta Lynn Oscar-winning biopic), Sweet Dreams (1985 – story of Patsy Cline), and Clint Eastwood's Honkytonk Man (1982). A 1979 television special, Dolly & Carol in Nashville, included a segment featuring Dolly Parton performing a gospel medley on the Ryman stage. In 1989, Gaylord Entertainment began work to beautify the Ryman's exterior. The structure of the building was also improved, as the company installed a new roof, replaced broken windows, and repaired broken bricks and wood. In October 1992, executives of Gaylord Entertainment announced plans to renovate the entire building and expand it to create modern amenities for performers and audiences alike, as part of a larger initiative to invest in the city's efforts to revitalize the downtown area. The first performance at the newly renovated Ryman was a broadcast of Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion on June 4, 1994. Beginning in November 1999, the Opry was held at Ryman Auditorium for three months, mostly due to the success of the January shows, but partly due to the ongoing construction of Opry Mills shopping mall next door to the Grand Ole Opry House. The Opry has returned to the Ryman for all of its November, December, and January shows every year since then, allowing the production to acknowledge its roots while also taking advantage of a smaller venue during the off-peak season for tourism and freeing the Grand Ole Opry House for special holiday presentations.The Ryman has also served as a gathering place for the memorial services of many prominent country music figures. Tammy Wynette, Chet Atkins, Skeeter Davis, Harlan Howard, Bill Monroe, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Billy Block, George Hamilton IV, Earl Scruggs, and Jim Ed Brown have all been memorialized from the Ryman stage. In 2018, the Ryman was named the most iconic structure in Tennessee by Architectural Digest. And just because….On June 9, 2019, Wu-Tang Clan performed the first pure rap concert ever at the Ryman. The concert was sold out.   Again, we like to give history on these places for context and honestly it's just interesting to us so whatever. But this again illustrates the point that many crazy things happened here over the years as many many people have passed through this auditorium… Including Moody.   Ok, so let's get to the ghosts and spooky shit. Ryman's spirit was fine with most performances but would rise if the people onstage were getting a bit risqué. Apparently, he disrupted shows by stomping around the room so loudly that spectators were forced to leave. Famously, the ghost wreaked havoc while the opera Carmen was taking place. Probably because it tells the story of a gypsy temptress.    During the grand ole Opry period, rumors surfaced that the venue was cursed since apparently, most singers that performed there wound up dead. A total of 37 people met their fate in the most gruesome ways, dying from O.D.s, car accidents, fires, or slaughterings. Among the artists believed to have succumbed to the curse are: Stringbean Akeman, Patsy Cline, Texas Ruby, and many more. In a blog post by Virginia Lamkin titled Haunted Ryman Auditorium, the author explains that when the show relocated to the Opryland USA theme park, 14 additional acts died. It is believed that the curse followed because a large portion of the Ryman Auditorium stage was cut out and brought to the new location.   The spirit often referred to as “The Grey Man,” is believed to have been one of the Confederate soldiers who frequented the auditorium during post-war gatherings. Some say they've witnessed him sitting in the balcony while artists rehearse. He watches the stage steadily but disappears as soon as anyone gets too close.   ”The lady,” on the other hand, isn't a spectator; she's a performer. Believed to be the ghost of Patsy Cline, she has been heard singing by staff. Usually, her performance happens late at night as they prepare to close. Patsy Cline, who died tragically in a plane crash, has also been linked to the Opry Curse. Could the curse not only kill but also trap artists in the venue?   Speaking of Opry Curse victims, Hank Williams is said to have been another casualty. The successful singer/songwriter passed away in 1953, after mixing prescription drugs with alcohol. Similar to the other artists haunting the auditorium, Hank's voice has been heard clear as day by employees. They have also heard his songs being played onstage, without explanation. Along with Patsy, Hank Williams' soul has lingered in the old venue ever since he passed.   The info on the history of the ryman comes mostly from their own website while the stories of the hauntings we found on the website ghostcitytours.com   Next up is the Phoenix theater in Petaluma California. The club has been in existence since 1905 and has changed in both structure and purpose, mostly due to severe damage caused by several fires. Petaluma's Phoenix Theater has been entertaining Sonoma County residents for over 116 years. Hosting everyone from the likes of Harry Houdini to Green Day, the fabled teen center and music venue has a varied and interesting history.   The entertainment center opened in 1904 as the Hill Opera House. The structure was designed by San Francisco architect Charles Havens, who also designed Petaluma's Carlson-Currier Silk Mill in 1892. The Beaux Arts-style theater hosted operas, theatrical performances, high school graduations and music for over 15 years until the early 1920s when it was gutted by fire.   In 1925, the venue reopened as the California Theatre playing silent films accompanied by music. A Jan. 24, 1925, Press Democrat article proclaimed the showplace the “largest playhouse in Petaluma and one of the finest theaters of Northern California.” A packed house attended the opening night performance which include a double feature picture show and live entertainment.   The theater switched to movies with sound in later years and lost major sections of its roof to a second fire in 1957. Petaluma's Tocchini family bought the floundering venue in 1967 switching to a program of live music and entertainment.   In 1983, the theater was renamed the Phoenix - reflecting its ability to be reborn from the ashes. Tom Gaffey, a young man who had grown up in Petaluma and worked at both the California and the Showcase theaters, was hired as manager, a position he holds to this day. The theater gained unwanted attention after a late-night performance by the band Popsicle Love Sponge performed a questionable act with the body of what was believed to be a dead chicken. The late-night shows ended, but the movies continued for a short time.   Today the venue serves as a graffiti-covered teen center and venue for rock, punk, reggae and more. In 1996, it hosted the last show of the Long Beach ska band Sublime as well as rock and punk legends the Ramones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, X, Metallica and Primus. The guiding principle of the Phoenix has always been that it's "everyone's building" and this was formalized in the early 2000's when the Phoenix became a 501(c)3 nonprofit  community center.   This place sounds pretty awesome. This following except it's taken directly from their website :               The Phoenix Theater is open seven days a week, generally from 3pm to 7pm, for drop-in “unstructured” use. Our building interior is large and soulful, with several rooms to accommodate a variety of activities. On a typical afternoon, you'll find kids playing acoustic music (we've got two pianos and a big stage), skateboarding (across the large wooden floor and up one of four quarter-pipe ramps), doing homework in the tutoring room, or sitting in one of the overstuffed sofas: reading, talking with friends, or napping. There's always a staff member onsite, but the atmosphere is casual.    On top of this they have free music programs from lessons to recording to production to podcasting to band management and everything in between. Also they have many programs for teens in the art community to hone their skills. Not only that they have a teen health center to help inform teens and help them make better, more  conscientious choices regarding their personal health. They also have services for  transitive health and STD help as well. We feel like every town needs a place like this. Especially if it's haunted!!! Speaking of which we found an interview that Gaffney did where he talks about some of his experiences and other things that have happened. The following was taken from petaluma360.com:   Gaffey began by talking about his earliest days. “It was my job to close the theater down. By 10:15 it would just be me, and whatever people were watching the movie. Near the end, I'd go up to the projection booth. After the audience exited, I'd turn off the projector, come down onto the stage where the sound equipment was, turn off the amps, check doors, balcony, bathrooms, lock the doors, hit the security alarm, then go out the door by the box office.”   On three separate nights, as he was leaving, the box office phone rang.   Gaffey explained the building had five phone stations. The light on the box office phone indicated the call was from the projection booth.   “I'd have to turn off the alarm and pick up the phone. ‘Hello? Hello? Hello?' But there was nobody there.   “You can't believe in ghosts when you're shutting down a theater. You have to check.   “Three times I mustered my courage, turned the lights back on and burst into the projection booth. There was no one there.   “That was my first experience, when I was an unknown here, a spooky ‘welcome back.'”   Gaffey is quick to temper his conversation with “it could have been” and “maybe someone playing pranks.” He keeps an open mind. Ghosts or explainable experiences: it's for the individual to decide.   “Blue lights have been seen floating through the building. There's the Little Kid: he'd been seen even when I was a kid working down here. And one night, sleeping on stage as a teen, I could hear and feel big footsteps. I never felt afraid.   “The big guy has been felt by many over the years,” Gaffey said. “We named him Chris. Big Chris. He's the only ghost - if there are ghosts here - who's not from a show business background.” He added that psychics who've visited the theater have talked about Chris dating to the livery stable-era and that someone was murdered on this spot, possibly with a knife.   But Gaffey continued firmly, “My experiences in this building have been warm and protective. “Chris had the spirit of the Phoenix before it became what it is. Chris may have loved this spot. I think it's one of the coolest corners in town.” He commented he sensed from the warmth he felt as he was talking that Chris was on stage, observing.   Then there's the Little Kid - a boy. “That's an interesting one,” Gaffey said. “Again - a psychic had come in. First off, he talked about the guy in the attic [the projection booth], said he seemed to be older, white hair and faded green, almost khaki, clothing; tall, thin with angular knees and elbows.   The older man, the psychic told Gaffey, is trying to make good on something wrong he felt he did to a child. The psychic added the old man hadn't, however, done anything.   “I'm wondering,” Gaffey said, “if it's the little boy. This was the fly area” - the area to the rear of the stage where backdrops hung. “With stuff hanging here and ladder work, maybe the kid was injured. He's been seen by many. He's got shaggy hair, maybe less than five feet, wearing shorts or knickers, a wool suit and a cap, from the 1920s.”   In the 1990s, a security guard for the thrash metal band GWAR got down off a ladder and asked, “Who's that little kid back there in the exit?” When no one could find the boy, the guard quit.    There is much more to the interview and we would definitely recommend checking it out! We've got one one more venue for you guys even though there are a bunch more out there. Some of the more well known and covered places like Bobby Mackey's in Kentucky, The Avalon in Hollywood, Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux Carre in New Orleans, The rapids theater in Niagara falls NY among others we've left off but will definitely be back to cover at a future point as the history and Hauntings in these places is awesome.    So that brings us to our home town of Cleveland Ohio and to the World famous Agora Theater. Now this a place where we've both spent many nights jamming out to some great fucking shows. And yes.. Whether you like it or not… Here comes some history fuckers.    The first Agora in Cleveland, informally referred to as Agora Alpha, opened on February 26, 1966, at 2175 Cornell Road in Little Italy near the campus of Case Western Reserve University. In 1967, the Agora moved to a second building on East 24th Street near the campus of Cleveland State University. Once settled in their new location, the new Agora Ballroom, informally referred to as Agora Beta, played a role in giving exposure to many bands, both from the Cleveland area and abroad. Many artists such as Peter Frampton, Bruce Springsteen, Boston, Grand Funk Railroad, ZZ Top, Kiss and many others received much exposure after playing the Agora.[3] The Agora Ballroom was also the setting of the concert by Paul Simon's character in the opening minutes of the 1980 movie One-Trick Pony. The front facade of the Agora Ballroom was temporarily swapped for the one shown in the movie. It is also one of three locations used to record Todd Rundgren's live album Back to the Bars in 1978.   The East 24th Street building also housed Agency Recording Studios, located above the Agora. The onsite recording studio and the close proximity to radio station WMMS allowed for high-quality live concert broadcasts from the Agora. Some of these concerts were later released commercially, including Bruce Springsteen's “The Agora, Cleveland 1978”, the Cars' “Live at the Agora 1978”, Ian Hunter's “You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic, Deluxe Edition” and Dwight Twilley Band's “Live From Agora”.   The popularity of the club led the Agora to expand during the 1970s and 1980s, opening 12 other clubs in the cities of Columbus, Toledo, Youngstown, Painesville, Akron, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Tampa, Hallandale, Hartford, and New Haven. However, the Cleveland location is the only one still in existence today.   In 1984, the Agora was damaged by a fire and closed.   The building currently known as the Agora first opened on March 31, 1913, with an English performance of Aida as the Metropolitan Theatre. It was the brainchild of Max Faetkenheuer, an opera promoter and conductor who had also been involved in the construction of the monumental Hippodrome Theatre on Euclid Avenue five years earlier. The new opera house was well received and did well early on, but later struggled to stay profitable. Among various uses, the Metropolitan was home to a Cleveland's Yiddish theatre troupe in 1927. This brief episode in its history came to an end a few months later in 1928 after the troupe was involved in a bus accident on the way to a performance in Youngstown; the actors were too injured to perform and the venture went bankrupt. By 1932, the venue had turned into a vaudeville/burlesque house called "The Gayety," hosting "hoofers, comics and strippers." The Metropolitan returned to its original use for a short time during the mid-1940s staging comedic musicals, but by the end of the decade stage productions had ceased and the theatre became a full-time movie house. From 1951–78, the theater offices were home to radio stations WHK (1420 AM) and WMMS (100.7 FM); the theater itself was known as the WHK Auditorium. In 1968–69 the theater was known as the Cleveland Grande. In the early 1980s, it briefly re-opened as the New Hippodrome Theatre showing movies. Following the fire which damaged the Agora Ballroom on East 24th Street, club owner Henry LoConti, Sr. decided to move to the 5000 Euclid Avenue location. Following extensive renovations, the new Agora Metropolitan Theater, the third Cleveland venue to bear the Agora name, opened in October 1986. The Agora has two rooms: a 500-person capacity, standing-room-only ballroom with adjoining bar, and an 1800-seat theater.   As far as some spooky shit goes, we were able to get some info straight from the source! We spoke with Mike who works at the agora and we got some cool stuff from him. In an email mine related the following information.            "Prior to our merger with AEG Presents, I used to lead our ‘Ghost Tours' with a group called Black Sheep Paranormal.   While I didn't know what to expect, and I wasn't exactly familiar with paranormal investigations, that quickly changed working with the group.             One of the members of the Black Sheep Paranormal group was a retired police officer. Pretty easy to say he's seen some shit, and could be characterized as fearless. Another member told him to check out the men's room, where we have a utility closest between our sinks and stalls. From past experiences, we usually get some decent activity from that closest. However, nothing occurred this time. After giving up on this spot, the team member decided to use the bathroom. Seconds later, he hears **CLAP, CLAP, CLAP** from behind his neck, and he exited the bathroom about as white as a ghost.   Oh man… Good thing he was in the bathroom in case he pissed himself!! This next story is pretty crazy. He talks about "The Cleaning Lady"!             "One of the known spirits at The Agora, who we call “The Cleaning Lady,” as you could have guessed, was responsible for cleaning the venue many decades ago. While I'm not exactly sure what happened to her, she was said to have fallen off our balcony, and died. One night, during an investigation, we were sitting in silence at the top of our balcony on the left hand side. As we sat there, we started to hear sweeping sounds. As the broom sweeps started to happen for a few seconds, all of the sudden, the sound traveled from the left side of the venue, all the way to the right side of the venue. We couldn't really explain it, but that's exactly what happened."   Wow! That's awesome! This next one would probably freak a lot of people out… but it's definitely cool.           "Another occurrence was when we were up in one of the suite boxes up in the balcony. The venue was blacked out, and from where we were sitting, you could still see the bar area in our lower level. The bar had a mini fridge up against the wall that had lighting in it. We draped it off with a black table cloth, but there was still exposed light coming from the fridge. As we're sitting there, we see a shadow fading in, and fading out of the light. Almost as if a person was pacing back and forth. We were able to see this because of the light from the fridge. As this shadow figure is pacing back and forth for a good 30 – 60 seconds, one of our team members calls out “if anyone is over by the bar, please make a sound.” And I shit you not, with no hesitation, a stack of plastic cups falls off the bar and onto the ground. That was definitely one of my favorite experiences."   Hopefully we get some action like that on our ghost hunt! Mike goes on to say that he actually got to see an apparition as well!       "Over the years, we've heard and seen many things. We've had items that turn up missing, seen plenty of white anomalies, and other occurrences. Apparitions are rare, but sounds are usually constant. We've heard bangs on our doors, we've heard voices, we've even heard music; big band music to be specific. The apparition I've seen was an unreal experience. We were sitting in the balcony, and we just saw this shadow figure in one of the seats across/behind us. The figure was perfectly human-shaped, but you could see through it. It definitely seemed like it was staring at us the whole time. Sadly, my story telling doesn't do this moment very much justice.   He said that a lot of the investigation stuff was mainly communication based with the spirits. He said they would ask  questions and they frequently got answers. We asked about how the spirits would answer and he told us:             "Most of the time in our investigations, we used dowsing rods for the questions, and asked them to cross the rods in a ‘yes or no' type of questioning. They were always responsive in this form. As long as we got it started, we usually were able to keep the questions going. Obviously, noises would happen all the time. I remember one evening just working (no event going on), but we use to have these ‘garage' type doors for our balcony entry. And for whatever reason, the spirts would not stop banging on them. Like something out of a movie, non-stop banging. That was the same day where my coworker went to use the bathroom, and as she was coming back to the office she heard “There she goes…” in a whisper type voice.   Damn! That's some crazy shit! We would like to thank Mike for his time and this incredible stories of the strange stuff that occurs at the agora! Hometown spooky shit is always awesome!  Top ten horror movie musicals https://screenrant.com/horror-musicals-best-ever-imdb/

EDT is one year old! Phil and Jake celebrate by ranking podcasts, ranked lists and metatextuality on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: We don't talk about it in the episode, but we both watched Symbiopsychotaxiplasm, a noteworthy film dealing with metatextuality (though you could get a lot of the same effect from watching YouTube reaction videos or the Bo Burnham video where he reacts to himself). One thing that we enjoyed we enjoyed from Symbiopsychotaxiplasm was when a film crew member says that every husband and wife from the moment of birth are destined to say poorly written cliched banalities at each other and all they want to say is "you're cutting my balls off" and "you're not a real man". Phil mentioned a podcast where you can listen to old Knicks games along with commentary. He has no proof that such a podcast exists, maybe he dreamed it. He's listened to commentary of old games on Knicks Film School but not the actual audio broadcast. He's sure such a thing could exist though. Other podcasts mentioned include This American Life, Planet Money, Radiolab and WTF with Marc Maron. In one scene in Luca, the characters watch Big Deal on Madonna Street. BD on MS is a really influential crime/caper movie. Heist type movies seem like they're all either remakes of this movie or Rififi (which BD on MS itself seems like a response to). TV shows discussed include The Office, Fleabag, Moonlighting, Saturday Night Live, Frasier, Batman: The Animated Series and Watchmen. Songs discussed include “Something to Ride To” & “Freaky Tales” by Too $hort, “We Got the Beat” by The Go-Gos, “1999” by Prince, “The Ghost of Tom Joad” & “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen, “Tulsa Time” by Don Williams, “Hips Don't Lie” by Shakira, “Jackin' for Beats” by Ice Cube, “Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)” by Cinderella, “Whiskey Bent and Hellbound” by Hank Williams, Jr. and “Ramblin' Man” by Hank Williams. We talk a bit about the Grant Morrison run on the comic series Animal Man, Phil remembers issue #5 (“The Coyote Gospel”) where Wile E. Coyote is reimagined as a Christ figure who dies over and over again in our world to redeem his own. Bonkers shit. Jake mentions issue #26 (“Deus Ex Machina”), where Morrison himself appears in the comic. Jake also talks about Morrison's The Invisibles, which he hasn't read, but has heard about it containing some magic where the author trades places with one of the characters. for the record, Phil says that Morrison uses a non-gender binary pronoun but the author's own website uses he / him / his so Jake probably isn't guilty of misgendering. Jorge Luis Borges also dealt extensively with himself as a character. Here's the short piece we mentioned. He's maybe the most meta writer. The idea of Countryman and the Cinematograph seems to be "country people don't know that movies aren't real". The idea of people not knowing movies aren't real is fun, which is probably why so many people-- including your humble hosts-- repeat the probably-urban-legend of people running for cover during early screenings of Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat. In the back of Las Meninas you can see the painter, Diego Velázquez. Phil was trying to remember the Hal Hartley movie Flirt in which the same dialogue is used three different times. He tries to remember the name of this movie a couple times a year but It's kind of boring so it's difficult. Other movies discussed include The Princess Bride, The Truman Show, Deadpool, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, Caddyshack, Watchmen, the Star Wars movies, The Matrix, Trading Places, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, the Wayne's World movies, Spaceballs, The Last Starfighter and Howard the Duck.

While researching the matter, Jake was relieved to discover that they aren't siblings, but unsettled upon learning that they're cousins. We of course talk quite a bit about the sublime performance of  Rodney Dangerfield, especially his facial expressions (such as this hat reaction) and his dancing. Phil speculates that maybe Caddyshack was autobiographical. It was, but mostly pulled from Brian Doyle-Murray's experiences. From one of the better Caddyshack "things you didn't know" pages out there: "To write their screenplay, Ramis, Kenney, and Doyle-Murray locked themselves in a room and tried to recall everything they knew about or experienced at golf courses and country clubs growing up—most of which came from Doyle-Murray, who caddied at Indian Hill Country Club in the suburbs of Chicago as a kid." When talking about Mad Magazine, Phil couldn't remember the name of cartoonist Mort Drucker. Chevy Chase  looks like if his own Mort Drucker caricature came to life. In the Marx Brothers movies, the role of Margaret Dumont was to sell the Marx Brothers by reacting to their bullshit.  Phil says "empty pool" when he means to say "drained pool" politics while talking about The Sum of Us by Heather Mcgee. Here's the scene from Natural Born Killers that features Rodney. It's disturbing, but it's also the best part of the movie. We mention “Weird Al” Yankovic. There's none of this in the podcast, but we think you should know that Phil's wife Beth continues to talk about her new character, a terrifying vision from the future Weird AI. He's a song parody writing artificial intelligence at the end of time.

Phil and Jake rank the 80s blockbuster E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Reese's Ultimate Peanut Butter Lovers Cup on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Here's the Eddie Murphy bit that Phil talks about at the beginning of the episode. Steven Spielberg projects mentioned include Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Night Skies, 1941, Raiders of the Lost Ark and his remake of War of the Worlds.  Other movies talked about include Never Been Kissed (which Phil's mother really enjoyed on an airplane), The Goonies, Star Wars, Howard the Duck, Back to the Future, The Last Starfighter, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Trading Places, The Truman Show, Flashdance and Enter the Dragon. Melissa Mathison is not related to Richard Matheson, whose work Spielberg had adapted. Their last names are homonyms, that's why Phil was confused. Melissa Mathison also wrote Kundun, The BFG and Indian in the Cupboard. Phil wasn't trying to steal autism valor but his point got mangled. There's a kind of boy that started showing up in movies around this time. The other example Phil could think of was the kid from D.A.R.Y.L. and the kid from Cloak and Dagger (played by the same kid who played Elliot in E.T.). In the past child actors were usually more anglo-looking. Maybe it boils down to Spielberg having enough pull to cast someone who looks like his own kids. For the record, we don't want to disparage New Age bullshit. C. Thomas Howell has a small role in E.T. We like when someone's name is also a sentence. It's not such a big deal though since it's a stage name. E.T. was produced by "Amblin Productions" and of course they didn't have the logo of the bike in front of the moon at the time, since it comes from E.T. Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman is the book Phil talks about. Erika Eleniak played Eliott's classmate and, as an adult, jumps out of a cake in Under Siege (but Phil forgets her name in the episode). Oops! All Berries is a foundational concept that we never tire of discussing. Here's the Chris Gaines VH1 Behind the Music that we failed to consider in last week's episode. ALSO DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:Mad Magazine * Drew Barrymore * Stranger Things * Peter Coyote * John Williams * Reese's Pieces * product placement * Coors aka Colorado Kool-Aid * Charmander * objectivity * Double Stuf Oreos * boiled peanuts * Whoppers * peanut butter ice cream * Cadbury Creme EggsBelow are the Top Ten and Bottom Top items on List of Every Damn Thing as of this episode (for the complete up-to-date list, go here):TOP TEN: Dolly Parton - person interspecies animal friends - idea sex - idea Clement Street in San Francisco - location Prince - person It's-It - food Cher - person Pee-Wee Herman - fictional character Donald Duck - fictional character Hank Williams - person BOTTOM TEN:163.

Now that we've established Owen Bradley as the single most important producer in the history of Nashville, let's take it further and acknowledge he's one of the most important figures in the history of all recorded music, even if for no other reason than assembling the first group of musicians to become known as the Nashville A-Team. Were we to erase their work from existence, every book about pop, rock or country music in the second half of the 20th century would need to be entirely rewritten. Just ask Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Everly Brothers, Patsy Cline, Ray Price, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, Roger Miller, Hank Williams, Marty Robbins, etc. And those are just the people who can speak from first-hand experience. If you want to start talking about the influence of the records, well, strap in.
