The oldest of nine children, he grew up in poverty, developing a troubled relationship with his strict, religious stepfather. In 1948, at age 24, Baldwin left for Paris, where he hoped to find enough distance from the American society he grew up in to write about it.Over the next ten years, Baldwin moved from Paris to New York to Istanbul, writing two books of essays, Notes of a Native Son (1955) and Nobody Knows My Name (1961), as well as two novels, Giovanni's Room (1956) and Another Country (1962). In the early 1960s, overwhelmed by a sense of responsibility to the times, Baldwin returned to take part in the civil rights movement. Traveling throughout the South, he began work on an explosive work about black identity and the state of racial struggle, The Fire Next Time (1963). This, too, was a bestseller: so incendiary that it put Baldwin on the cover of TIME Magazine. For many, Baldwin's clarion call for human equality – in the essays of Notes of a Native Son, Nobody Knows My Name and The Fire Next Time – became an early and essential voice in the civil rights movement. By 1987, when he died of stomach cancer at age 63, James Baldwin had become one of the most important and vocal advocates for equality. From Go Tell It on the Mountain to The Evidence of Things Not Seen (1985), James Baldwin created works of literary beauty and depth that will remain essential parts of the American canon.From https://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/james-baldwin-about-the-author/59/. Born in New York in 1923, Richard Avedon dropped out of high school and joined the Merchant Marine's photographic section. Upon his return in 1944, he found a job as a photographer in a department store. Within two years he had been “found” by an art director at Harper's Bazaar and was producing work for them as well as Vogue, Look, and a number of other magazines. During the early years, Avedon made his living primarily through work in advertising. His real passion, however, was the portrait and its ability to express the essence of its subject.As Avedon's notoriety grew, so did the opportunities to meet and photograph celebrities from a broad range of disciplines. Avedon's ability to present personal views of public figures, who were otherwise distant and inaccessible, was immediately recognized by the public and the celebrities themselves. Many sought out Avedon for their most public images. His artistic style brought a sense of sophistication and authority to the portraits. More than anything, it is Avedon's ability to set his subjects at ease that helps him create true, intimate, and lasting photographs.Beyond his work in the magazine industry, Avedon has collaborated on a number of books of portraits. In 1959 he worked with Truman Capote on a book that documented some of the most famous and important people of the century. Observations included images of Buster Keaton, Gloria Vanderbilt, Pablo Picasso, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mae West. Around this same time he began a series of images of patients in mental hospitals. Replacing the controlled environment of the studio with that of the hospital he was able to recreate the genius of his other portraits with non-celebrities. The brutal reality of the lives of the insane was a bold contrast to his other work. Years later he would again drift from his celebrity portraits with a series of studio images of drifters, carnival workers, and working class Americans.Throughout the 1960s Avedon continued to work for Harper's Bazaar and in 1974 he collaborated with James Baldwin on the book Nothing Personal. Having met in New York in 1943, Baldwin and Avedon were friends and collaborators for more than thirty years. For all of the 1970s and 1980s Avedon continued working for Vogue magazine, where he would take some of the most famous portraits of the decades. In 1992 he became the first staff photographer for The New Yorker, and two years later the Whitney Museum brought together fifty years of his work in the retrospective, “Richard Avedon: Evidence”. He was voted one of the ten greatest photographers in the world by Popular Photography magazine, and in 1989 received an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art in London. Today, his pictures continue to bring us a closer, more intimate view of the great and the famous. Avedon died on October 1st, 2004.From https://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/richard-avedon-about-the-photographer/467/. For more information about James Baldwin and Richard Avedon:Previously on The Quarantine Tapes:Eddie S.

In the heart of Greenwich Village sits the Jefferson Market Library, a branch of the New York Public Library, and a beautiful garden which offers a relaxing respite from the busy neighborhood.But a prison once rose from this very spot -- more than one in fact. While there was indeed a market at Jefferson Market -- dating back to the 1830s -- this space is more notoriously known for America's first night court (at the Jefferson Market Courthouse, site of today's library) and the Women's House of Detention, a facility which cast a gloom over the Village for over 40 years.Almost immediately after the original courthouse (designed by Frederick Clarke Withers and Calvert Vaux) opened in 1877, it was quickly overburdened with people arrested in the Tenderloin district. By 1910 a women's court opened here, and by the Jazz Age, the adjacent confinement was known as "the women's jail.”When the Women's House of Detention opened in 1931 -- sometimes referred to as the world's only Art Deco prison -- it was meant to improve the conditions for women who were held there. But the dank and inadequate containment soon became symbol of abuse and injustice.In this special episode -- recorded live at Caveat on the Lower East Side -- Tom and Greg are joined by Hugh Ryan, author of The Women's House of Detention: A Queer History of a Forgotten Prison to explore the detention center's place in both New York City history and LGBT history.How did the "House of D" figure into the Stonewall Uprising of 1969? And what were the disturbing circumstances surrounding its eventual closure?FEATURING: Stories of Mae West, Stanford White, Alva Belmont, Mayor Jimmy Walker, Angela Davis, Andrea Dworkin and -- Tupac Shakur?Visit our website for images of the things we spoke about in this week's show.

Mae West was small, but mighty. Her tiny 5 ft. frame was very voluptious and she wasn't afraid to show it off. She was an American stage and film actress, playwright, screenwriter, singer, and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned over seven decades. She craved the spotlight and was a natural star. She saved Paramount from going bankrupt and helped skyrocket Cary Grant's career.  “Underneath the blonde wigs and the diamonds and the wisecracks, she had a message and an agenda,” Dirty Blonde codirector Sally Rosenthal said in a statement to Vanity Fair. “She wanted to offer an alternative version of womanhood, in which overt sexual desire wasn't shameful or dirty but an expression of independence.” Send us your Hoe of History requests to homancepodcast@gmail.com.

It was Mae West who famously said "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful." Her aphorism came to mind this last week as I was confronted by an abundance of good things. It has become a cherished annual tradition that my best friend George and I spend several days at the end of August in reunion with our California based college roommate, Susie. She and her husband, John, install themselves at George's house in nearby Connecticut and we see each other repeatedly. This year, I decided that it would make great sense to lure my sister and her husband from Pittsburgh to join this event, as they befriended Susie and John when they all lived in Houston in the 1980s and the four had not seen each other in 23 years. An additional benefit would be to introduce Eric to my family, as he had introduced me to his the month before in Quebec. Coupledom, after all, requires that we know each other's families. A group of seven congregating day after day over five days is a bit overwhelming and easily risks being "too much of a good thing." Keeping it fresh, and not unduly burdensome, requires some thought. We addressed that risk in part with changes of context (dinner revolving from George's to my house to a restaurant) and attempting activities beyond just conversation (afternoon at a pond, a walk through a sculpture show, etc). Whatever we did, it worked. We all, I think, felt a warm glow afterward, and no hint that the good time together was "too much". It was perhaps not surprising, though, that "too much of a good thing" became itself a topic of our conversation. It is late summer, and anyone with a garden knows that this is precisely the time that too much of a good thing is being produced. The avalanche of tomatoes that I most associate with summer is just beginning to roll here, but an avalanche of zucchini is already well under way. A repeated focus of our discussion was what to do with all this zucchini. I've never been a huge zucchini fan. To me, it always seemed to be all volume, and no flavor. But then, my views had been shaped by the poor soggy steam table preparation I encountered in restaurants and catered events when younger, and my own generally neglectful approach to the vegetable garden. I see a nice little zucchini on the vine, and I think, "oh, I'll pick it tomorrow, when it's just slightly larger, the perfect light green color, crisp and subtly flavored." When I next decide to check the vines, three days later, there lies a pale yellowish 2 pound baseball bat, full of a large seedy center, with a somewhat non-determinant flavor. Sure, I can hollow it out into a boat that is stuffed and baked with a filling, or can shred the flesh and even freeze it for winter use, but often confronted with five or six large vessels like that and unable to face processing, I feed them to my old sow, Possum, who devours them avidly. This year, however, in part because the zucchini were one of the few crops not being eaten up by the rabbits plaguing my garden, I decided to be more attentive to harvesting at the peak moment, and to try different ways of incorporating the abundance into my diet. I started with what I consider a fail-safe: Turkish zucchini fritters (mujver), in which you shred the zucchini, salt it to extract as much liquid as possible, sautee the shredded zucchini with onion and garlic, then add to that mixture egg, flour, beyaz penir (or a similar feta-style cheese), chopped dill and parsley and some hot red pepper. You make that mixture into patties and fry in sunflower oil. Serve with yoghurt. I made this for Eric and my friend Tom one night, and even though I didn't quite get the fritters to hold together all that well they pronounced it a resounding success. From there, I started exploring alternatives. When on my own I made pasta sauce in which sauteed zucchini simmered in a tomato sauce. Yum. Another night, curried zucchini, loaded with cumin, coriander seed and hot pepper over rice. Also quite tasty, as zucchini absorbs the flavor of what it cooks with, and easy for a quick one person meal. I tried air frying little zucchini sticks cut on the fine setting of the mandolin, expecting something like those Belgian frites you get with mussels, but unfortunately producing a soggy mess.This led to a search for recipes for air fried zucchini. Turns out that if you cut the strips like thick french fries, roll them in flour then beaten egg then bread crumbs, they emerge from the air fryer crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. A triumph we repeated and will again. I had vaguely remembered a dish Eric prepared last summer, which called for long strips of zucchini marinated in olive oil and lemon juice, then rolled into an almost floral presentation, drizzled with honey and dill. Hunting for it, I found this variation, using small rounds of young zucchini, with garlic added to the marinade, and in which a mix of dill, parsley, mint and chives is sprinkled on top. We've probably done these two recipes, in the aggregate, 8 times this month. Encountering this dish in a subsequent meal and recognizing the quest I was on, professed zucchini fan Tom suggested a bulletin entitled "Fifty Shades of Z". So now I like zucchini, and continue to seek out new ways to take advantage of this summer abundance. Susie has suggested stir fries, and a chickpea and zucchini stew. I welcome, in fact avidly request, your favorite suggestions as I try to vindicate Mae West's words of wisdom.Too much of a good thing can indeed be wonderful.

“Hootenanny A Go-Go,” aka “Once Upon A Coffee House” is a 1965 film based on an original story by and includes songs and music from our dad, Carl Yale (that's him with the sunglasses if you're on Libsyn). The film was shot in Miami at a breakneck pace in 1964 and was produced by Fred Berney. The idea came about as a result of Berney's visits to one of our father's (and uncle's) coffee houses in Miami – The Hootenanny – as the folk scene was coming to a crescendo at the advent of the British Invasion – and was intended as a vehicle for various folk artists at the time. Of note is the fact that the film was also the first-ever screen appearance by Joan Rivers. Here's our conversation with Fred – a look into the film itself, his life and career in media, and his take on Miami itself.

Flashback #2: We purchased OJ Simpson's memorabilia at auction and then burned both his Hall of Fame Award and his Heisman '68 Jersey (which had been hanging in his Brentwood mansion) to call for the installation of a new criminal justice system in America. See KGOV.com/oj. Flashback #3: Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick as documented at ShadowGov.com and as an editor of the Wall Street Journal wrote, that Bill Clinton's rape of Juanita Broaddrick was an event that "in fact took place." Hear also Bob's worldwide exclusive interview with Juanita Broaddrick and with nurse Norma Rogers, her friend who found Broaddrick wounded and in tears shortly after the assault. Flashback #4: BEL aired never-before-heard Columbine recordings and we get to the real story (i.e., one murderer's Natural Selection t-shirt) behind the massacre, the search warrant application that was squashed that may have prevented the murders, and the disgraced sheriff's refusal to let SWAT intervene. Flashback #5: Check out Bob Enyart's phone call to Michael Jackson attorney's office on the very day that Mark Geragos threatened to sue anyone who "besmirched Jackson's reputation" and see the three pieces of information on the homosexual child molester that Bob gave to the Santa Barbara District Attorney. Flashback #6: Reporters whom we identify by name from the New York Times, the LA Times, and Reuters called for comment about the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs. But as fake news they all refused to show the petition signature or even report that the kgov.com/hero Officer Garrett Swasey who was murdered by the pothead who shot up the mill had been helping us to try to stop all killing at that abortion mill, including by the abortionist. Flashback #7: After our meager effort to get justice for JonBenet failed, we presented our Clue that Breaks the Case and our Concise List of Inculpatory Evidence Against the Ramseys including in this 200,000+ views YouTube: Five of the Ten Commandments: Five of the Bible's Ten Commandments lay the foundation for a valid criminal justice system: - Do not murder (basis for the right to life and prohibiting crimes of bodily harm crimes) - Do not steal (basis for the right to own private property and prohibiting socialism and other economic crimes)- Do not commit adultery (basis for prohibiting extra-marital intimacy, etc.) - Do not bear false witness (prohibiting of kgov.com/perjury as the basis for the right to due process) - Do not covet (goes to establishing motive in court proceedings) See kgov.com/americas-criminal-code for our one-page long proposed criminal code that can replace a million pages of the country's current codes. Death Penalty at the Heart of the Gospel of Christ: Question: Do any New Testament people or books support execution?Answer: As shown directly in the verses below, Jesus, Paul, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, Hebrews, Revelation, and an angel all give strong support for the death penalty. But first consider the case of an American mass murderer. Here are the New Testament scriptures this article quotes: "For if I am an offender, or have committed anything deserving of death, I do not object to dying; but if there is nothing in these things of which these men accuse me, no one can deliver me to them. I appeal to Caesar." -Apostle Paul, Acts 25:11 "Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? For God commanded, saying... 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.' But you say..." -Jesus Christ, Mat. 15:3‑4 & Mark 7:8‑11 …rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. For [the governing authority] is God's minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. -Paul, Rom. 13:3-4 And if anyone wants to harm them… he must be killed… -Apostle John, Rev. 11:5 he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. -John, Rev. 13:10 Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies (present tense) without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot. Hebrews 10:28‑29 [death penalty = deterrent for unbelief] "[we] are under the same condemnation, indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong" -repentant criminal being executed Luke 23:40-41 Here are a few Old Testament scriptures for capital punishment: Be afraid of the sword for yourselves; for wrath brings the punishment of the sword, that you may know there is a judgment. Job 19:29 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance… So that men will say, "Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely He is God who judges in the earth." Ps. 58:10‑11 "Whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man." Gen. 9:6 'take no ransom for the life of a murderer… but he shall surely be put to death' Num. 35:31‑33 "Will you profane Me among My people… killing people who should not die, and keeping people alive who should not live…?" Ezek. 13:19 Thus the death penalty still applies for murder, kidnapping, etc. But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless... for murderers [Ex. 21:16]... for perjurers... -Paul 1 Tim. 1:8-10 Finally, KGOV's New Testament Support for Capital Punishment explains that Christians should not advocate for the death penalty for the Mosaic symbolic offenses. Why not? For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law Hebrews 7:12 As of shortly after Christ's death, no government, not even Israel's, should punish, let alone execute, those who violate the symbolic ordinances which reinforced Israel's priestly role (Lev. 24:16; Mat. 15:4; etc.). Listener's Neighbors Murdered: Please pray for a BEL listener going to visit in jail a husband who turned himself in, who murdered his wife on Feb. 21, 2019. Both were Chuck's neighbors. Our listener will urge the murderer to forbid his defense attorneys from entering a not guilty plea, and even to dismiss them. Further, that he should not fight the death penalty. And, even if he asks God to forgive Him to save His soul (which would be wise, that should have no affect on the punishment that he is due in this life,

Annie Wood is a Hollywood native, neurodiverse, Israeli-American  actor (Good Luck Chuck, My Sister's Keeper, Becker) an internationally exhibited mixed media artist, an author, screenwriter, and playwright. Annie was the host and co-producer of the nationally syndicated dating game show, BZZZ! making her the 3rd female solo dating game show host in the history of television.  The Hollywood Reporter compared Annie's comedic chops to the legendary actresses, Jean Harlow and Mae West declaring that a new comic blonde is on the scene! Annie Wood is a find!  Annie was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher and confesses to being a “creative compulsive.”  Annie can juggle kiwis for about 3 seconds.  (The fruit, not people from New Zealand.) Now you know everything. Almost...Annie's father was diagnosed with dementia but only after researching his horrible reaction to the antipsychotics that his doctors put him on did she do a deep dive to discover that he most likely had Lewy body dementia, the kind without Parkinson's.  His main symptom is he has auditory hallucinations.  And in particular, one that recurred on a very consistent basis. After a stressful few months with ER visits and lots of wild times, Annie placed her father into assisted living (he was previously living in a senior living place with his own apartment without additional help) and is able to see him almost everyday. During the really chaotic time when her father thought the voice was going to kill her,  Annie turned to her talents to cope - writing,  painting, as well as other expressions of art, which resulted in 44 powerful  pages of art and poems that she shares HERE.Annie is currently writing a play called "Nudnik", the nickname she gave the main voice her father hears, that is scheduled to be read at the Dramatist Guild upon its completion. She is thinking about a documentary short incorporating her poetry.  Connect with Annie:TWITTERINSTAGRAMPINTERESTGet her book, "Just a Girl in The Whirl", HERE on AmazonSUPPORT OUR NEW AFFILIATES!MEUNDIES  - use the promo code LOVEALZ for 15% off your first purchaseYOUTHFORIA - use the promo code LOVE  for 10% off your first purchase   Support the show
