I think I’ve always wanted to be a more anal person than I actually am. I’ve tried to be the person who puts every task immediately into an app, schedules it, and adds the perfect emoji (the important part.) I allowed myself to obsess over minimalism and Marie Kondo, trying to transform my home into the clean white soulless void of an Apple store. I feel in love with the ideas of Zettlekasten and Roam Research where every fart and hiccup in my brain is meticulously connected to all the others like a perfect meth-smoking spider’s web. I wanna meditate every day, take clod showers, get in my reps, nail my macros, and hustle hustle hustle. I want to use footnotes. But honestly, I just don’t give that much of a fuck about any of it. My real life is a maelstrom of monotony and chaos. I spend my days reading books, scribbly sloppy notes on paper, and hoping I can read them when I sit down to right one of these posts. I count days by how many clean pairs of underwear I have left until I’m forced to do laundry. My living space leans more towards piles than it does toward organization. My analytical mind is easily distracted by emotion, novelty, cartoons, and hormones.Oh well. That’s who I am. I improve what I can, and move along with the rest.As I write this I’m watching the screen saver on my Apple TV as it shows slow-motion drone footage of people on a beach and carnival rides on a pier (likely Santa Monica.) I hate the way it makes me feel. I look at it and I don’t see tomorrow. I don’t think “I can’t wait to go to the beach again.” I look at it and I see the past. I see something lost. I see a world that feels like something we may never make our way back to. I’m sure you feel it too. It’s not every day, but it’s there: the part of our brain that wonders if hugging, and crowded festivals, and movie theaters will ever feel normal again. Or will the trepidation and caution forever follow us?Oh well. That’s life. Improve what we can, and move along with the rest.“there’s a gun in the room”I’m sure you noticed the audio file above. I’m sure some of you thought it was a podcast. I wonder how many of you were unable to scroll onward without clicking it first. I would have.I’ve been playing my guitar a lot recently, and have been sending 1-2 minute little pieces to my friend Johnny (who will probably be the first person to open this and read it. Hi Jon.) I went down a rabbit hole for an hour the other day looking at looping pedals until it hit me: “I have an iPhone.” So I’ve been screwing around with laying guitar pieces in Garageband for iOS.The audio above is one of those pieces. I like playing with dissonance—which can come across as jazz. I think to some degree it does here, which is why I tried to play with the timing in each guitar line (of which there are five,) and make it feel a little broken and discombobulating. In the lead line, I even threw in a bend (which is more blues than jazz.) And the keys for each line are different. I wanted to see how they would weave together, going in and out of harmony.All of this was going through my head but don’t get the idea that I was sitting and planning out every note. I’ve always been more instinctual than technical. I think the reason I’ve never been the kind of guitar player who can sit down and strum an Eagles song or solo like Slash is that music is more of an experiment for me. “What happens is if do this and do this?” This often leads to awful results (the song above might be an example of that to you.) It’s not about writing songs, it’s about exploration. It’s curiosity not product. Charlie Kaufman not Aaron Sorkin.Almost everybody knows by now how much I love the Rolling Stones, but I’ve never been interested in making music that sounds like the Stones (in fact I’ve never even bothered to learn how to play any of their songs.) My own music always veers more towards Sonic Youth, John Cage, Captain Beefheart, Harry Partch, everything post-punk, and The Velvet Underground. Somehow, even I forgot about that.I intend to explore my weirdo nature more. Expect more broken music.the velvet undergroundSpeaking of music, I finally sat down and watched the Apple TV+ documentary on The Velvet Underground. I loved it. It’s exactly what I needed. I’m glad Todd Haynes was the one who directed this. The standard music documentary format would have been very un-Velvet Underground. I can think of no better director than Haynes whose first film was the Karen Carpenter story told via Barbie dolls. His use of split-screen here makes sure that nothing ever feels standard or boring (especially at the beginning where he uses Warhol’s copious footage of the band members staring non-stop into the camera.)La Monte Young & John Cale were creating drones (referring to long musical notes, not the flying quad-copters that watch you when you’re naked in the swimming pool.)We found that the most stable thing we could tune to was the 60 cycle hum of the refrigerator because 60 cycle hum was, to us, the drone of western civilization. — John CaleI’ve long been fascinated by the drone of the microwave often harmonizing my voice to it as I waited for something to cook.I looked up La Monte Young but couldn’t find any recordings of him. I did find Noël Akchoté playing guitar arrangements of some of his compositions.The bass line for “The Ostrich” by The Primitives (basically Lou Reed, John Cale, and some friends) sounded really familiar.Then I placed it. It seems Sebadoh borrowed it for “Flame.”christineI read Christine by Stephen King. I’m a latecomer when it comes to King. Before this year the only thing by him I had ever read was On Writing. Having read The Shining earlier this year and now having read Christine, I think I’ve discovered what makes King such a tremendous writer. He does the work. Stephen King comes up with the most ridiculous concepts (teenage nerd falls in love with a dilapidated car which over time possesses him,) yet rather than descending into camp, he accepts the concepts. He doesn’t criticize the ideas, he embraces them and embodies them. “If this was real, what would it look like.” He fills the books with so much character and detail that even the most absurd concepts become legitimate.the righteous mindI read The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt. Here are some key points:People bind themselves into political teams that share moral narratives. Once they accept a particular narrative, they become blind to alternative moral worlds.We have intuition (the elephant) and reasoning (the rider.) The rider is not in control like a pilot is over a plane; the rider serves mostly to understand the actions of the elephant. Our reason writes the story of our intuitive action. Rather than appealing to someone’s reasoning (as we normally do,) we should find a way to appeal to their intuition. Lead the elephant and the rider comes along.The foundations of morality:care/harmliberty/oppressionfairness/cheatingloyalty/betrayalauthority/subversionsanctity/degradationThe liberal foundation favors care, liberty, and fairness with care being the most favored. The libertarian foundation favors liberty & fairness with liberty being the most favored. The conservative foundation favors all six equally.Nonetheless, if you are trying to change an organization or a society and you do not consider the effects of your changes on moral capital, you’re asking for trouble. This, I believe, is the fundamental blind spot of the left. It explains why liberal reforms so often backfire, and why communist revolutions usually end up in despotism. It is the reason I believe that liberalism—which has done so much to bring about freedom and equal opportunity—is not sufficient as a governing philosophy. It tends to overreach, change too many things too quickly, and reduce the stock of moral capital inadvertently. Conversely, while conservatives do a better job of preserving moral capital, they often fail to notice certain classes of victims, fail to limit the predations of certain powerful interests, and fail to see the need to change or update institutions as times change.media biasAfter reading all of these political books I’ve been thinking a lot about the inherent biases of our media sources. In the process, I discovered this tremendous website called Media Bias / Fact Check. You can look up any media source and it will show you it fits on the left/right spectrum as well as the factual/not factual spectrum.Personally, I like to get differing perspectives (without dipping into extremism and outright falsehoods.) Some of my favorite media sources are: Reuters: least biased / very high factualThe Economist: least biased / high factualThe Christian Science Monitor: least biased / high factual Newsweek: left-center / high factual Business Insider: left-center / high factual Texas Monthly: left-center / high factual The Wall Street Journal: right-center / mostly factualThe Spectator World: right-center / mostly factualReason: right-center (libertarian) / high factualbtwI had intended to write a bunch more but this is so long already. I think I will post a supplemental in a few days. If I continue writing as much as I have been lately, then this may become ongoing (no promises.)debatable ideasDebatable Ideas is a weekly curation of the ideas that stand out to me from the week. That can mean something I see truth in, something worth contemplating, something questionable, something I'm bothered by, something ridiculous, something that I think is false, or something that will make you shake your phone like you caught a snake while waiting in line at Starbucks. It's up to you to decide what you think—and politely discuss in the comments.The ideas are numbered for easy reference. addition, if you run across any fascinating, horrifying, insane, bonkers, and entertaining ideas, please direct me to them in the comments.Judaism was the foundation of my childhood. As a child, I attended Jewish day school and Jewish summer camp and regularly celebrated Shabbat and the Jewish holidays. Some of my most enduring childhood memories are at the Shabbat dinner table, where my parents and their friends would discuss world affairs and important societal issues. There were always multiple viewpoints expressed. My mother is a rabbi, and my parents always taught us that such disagreements were the essence of living Jewishly—to argue, as the rabbis taught, for the sake of heaven. Jew vs. JewInformation vacuums are common in breaking-news events in the social-media era. In the early moments after a mass shooting or a natural disaster, or in the unknown moments after the polls close but before votes are tabulated in an election, there is a higher demand for definitive information than there is supply. These moments offer propagandists, trolls, pundits, politicians, journalists, and anyone else with an internet connection the opportunity to fill that vacuum with … something. It’s a treacherous situation, where rumor, speculation, and disinformation have the power to outpace verified information. Traditional breaking-news events tend to have a short half-life but, as we’ve found with COVID coverage, information gaps can last weeks or months. Sometimes, the definitive information we want (when will the pandemic end?) is basically unknowable, or too hard to pin down. The Omicron Information VacuumThe collapse is inevitable: Virtually every world power that ever existed has eventually declined, failed, and disappeared. The Soviet Union had survived for nearly 70 years, the British Empire for more than 400, and ancient Egypt for almost 30 centuries. But even though the land of the pharaohs was long crowned with success, its decline and destruction were unstoppable. History tells us it’s not a question of whether a world power will eventually be destroyed but rather a question of when.

“You can learn so much in exploring someone else's perspective. You can learn so much about yourself.” This very special episode is the result of a recent conversation with my friend, Jennifer Bulbrook. Both of us have lost loved ones to AIDS. We vowed not to let another World AIDS Day pass without acknowledging those impacted by the stigma, the judgement, and the grief that accompanies this diagnosis, including the families. In connecting with one another, we have the ability to create further understanding, awareness, and to cultivate compassion for our fellow humans. With full awareness that this topic remains taboo, Jennifer and I are willing to get real, raw, and vulnerable in sharing our experiences in the hopes that others will know they are not alone. In the spirit of forging ahead with my own concept that “no topic is off limits,” this particular conversation has taken me decades to create. In honor of every other human who has been touched by AIDS, know that you are seen, you are heard, and you are loved. I am always open to support you in your journey.

Week on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey really need to come up with a safeword. The Classic Film: Cujo (1983) "Cujo, a friendly St. Bernard, contracts rabies and conducts a reign of terror on a small American town” (IMDb.com). Cujo is a thrilling story that manages to wring a lot of pathos out of a little premise, but will never be as good as the first time you saw it. The Modern Film: Gerald's Game (2017) "When a harmless game between a married couple in a remote retreat suddenly becomes a harrowing fight for survival, wife Jessie must confront long-buried demons within her own mind - and possibly lurking in the shadows of her seemingly empty house” (Intrepid Pictures). Like Mike Flanagan is wont to do, Gerald's Game is heavy on trauma and emotion at the expense of the scares. It's still a great movie, but maybe not a great *horror* movie.

This week, Nathan and Peter find themselves trapped in the corridors of a grimy English hotel with Si Hart and Conrad Westmaas, where the rooms are full of biting into a woollen jumper, turning up to your maths exam totally naked, and the fact that one day, you, your loved ones and everyone who has ever heard of you will be completely and irrevocably dead. The janitor seems pretty fit though. It's The God Complex. Notes and links It goes without saying that the ur-text for the scary hotel that's the repository of the previous residents' secret fears is Kubrick's The Shining (1980). The AV Club review of this episode identifies it as an influence straightaway. During the Hinchcliffe Era, nearly every story featured the Doctor and Sarah being menaced by an evil from the dawn of time who had not been sufficiently executed enough. We discuss the issue in our The Hand of Fear episode, Not Sufficiently Executed Enough. Follow us Nathan is on Twitter as @nathanbottomley, Si is @Si_Hart, and Conrad is @HairoftheHound_.

Hotels are places of transition, whose rooms have seen intense passions, furious hatred, great joys, deep sorrows, and even murder. Not surprisingly, hotels are also places that seem to attract the spirits of their former tenants. From a golf course ghost in upstate New York to the super-haunted hotel that inspired Stephen King's The Shining; from the spirits of Lizzie Borden and her possible victims to the crooked cancer doctor who buried his specimens in a resort's backyard and the specter of one of the greatest comedians in Hollywood history, we take a twisted road trip through America's most haunted hotels...stopping, of course, at each for a spooky overnight stay.

The last couple weeks saw me continuing on my world tour, travelling from France, back to Italy, and now to Chicago where I am taking some time to reflect and record this episode. As I teased last episode, I returned to Damanhur - this time by myself instead of with a group. I didn't realize going into it what a different experience and meaning it would have for me between my first trip and my second. I attended a full moon event, which is all about letting go of that which does not serve you. Damanhur harnesses and fosters the energies available to all of us in the world through their shared community goals and understandings, and it makes for an amazingly supportive environment. It truly makes you feel like a superperson, and makes the hard things easy - because you're able to realize your full authentic power. My goal in this episode is to help provide tools to make my experiences here, and also in the last 18 months, usable for you as a listener. Personally, I promised myself that I would use this period constructively to help shift what I was stuck in - patterns, ways of thinking, and the energy I was tapping into. Damanhur made this mission feel possible because being there dropped away all of the resistance I had been feeling in making this change. I realized that I had been looking outside of myself for the answers I was seeking - but the answers were actually within me, in parts of that I had suppressed and repressed. I was afraid of those parts of myself, because they carried a lot of pain and fear - but I learned at Damanhur that those pieces of myself are necessary for who I am today, and ultimately was the gift that brought about my awakening. Now is the time to ask yourself, “Are there any parts of me that I have repressed, or suppressed, that want to be expressed?” You can transmute that energy, no matter its nature, into happiness and joy. It takes courage to show yourself love, and accept all of the parts of yourself...but adding a homeopathic dropper of love to the parts of yourself that your pain is housed in is the only way to heal and bring yourself together. The way of the future of health is changing - but you can start today by doing less, and embracing the inner power you already contain. Find a witness to help provide support - or reach out to me so that I can help walk with you towards the light. You don't need to go to Damanhur to make this happen for yourself - and you can also find ways to go to Damanhur without actually going there. Next week on the podcast, I speak to a friend of mine who lives at Damanhur so we can talk more about how you can bring Damanhur and its teachings into your life, no matter where you are - so make sure you tune in!

Two books into this whole Stephen King Retrospective (though it is in fact the third book) and we might have hit the plateau. The Shining has an interesting set of distinctions in the author's bibliography. It remains one of the author's most popular books among readers. Yet, the original film adaptation has sparked more debate than anything that has ever been adapted. Is it a question of Stanley Kubrick taking the novel's contents and changing them in the name of the author, whom Kubrick had called 'a brat'? Or, is it really one of the scariest movies ever made, and King's shots at it unwarranted? Listen in as myself, Matt, and Adam rejoin to answer some of this debate. In the 90s, if Roseanne was the queen of ABC, Stephen King was its king. By the time The Shining mini series aired in 1997, he had four full mini series that had massive ratings. So, with ABC at his disposal, he decided to do the one thing that had eluded him since Stanley Kubrick released his 1980 film. With horror fans and critics coming around to the original's horrific display, King decided it was finally time to unleash his own cinematic version of his 1977 novel, with his friend Mick Garris directing. Listen in as myself, Matt, and Adam decide if it is indeed what King had hoped. A movie that is even better than Kubrick's. The Shining (1997) (?/10, ?/10, ?/10) CLICK ABOVE TO LISTEN NOW!

The online business world is notoriously fast-paced, so it's often difficult for digital entrepreneurs to stay up-to-date on industry trends. We hear phrases like “supply chain crisis” and “Amazon product launch changes” mentioned in the news, but how will these industry changes affect you? Our very own Greg Elfrink, the Empire Flippers' Director of Marketing, has the answers you're looking for! After having deeply immersed himself in the online business world for the past 5 years, Greg knows the ins and outs of the online business world. Greg joins us to discuss the positives and negatives of the current state of the industry and why sellers need to pay attention to the market. He walks us through the impact that the looming supply chain crisis could have on e-commerce businesses and the best ways for buyers and sellers to navigate the tough times ahead. Greg explains why the market is perfect for exits, and how sellers can get a jump on their competition by cutting the queue and selling their businesses before the new year.

Just like the solo episodes that I kicked off Season 3 with, I planned to record this episode in the midst of a peaceful hike. But this time I was in France, not Hawaii. In all honesty, though - this is not that episode. My recorder got tossed around in my suitcase and reset the volume knob too low, which I didn't notice until too late. As a result I recorded a whole episode...of complete silence. But I knew that I needed to tell you about the life changing experience I just had in Northern Italy. So, when the timing felt right - I recorded it again. If you haven't been following my travels, the quick version is this: I started in Costa Rica, then travelled to the US (Hawaii, New York, and Miami), before heading back to Canada to quarantine and repack, and then onto Italy - and now France. I didn't know why at the time, but I knew I needed to go through every stage of these travels. I left Canada without really knowing anything, really, about where I was headed. But if you know me, you know that's how I live - I trust in my feelings and my instincts. There are Synchronic Lines that encircle the Earth, and Damanhur - where I went in Italy - is located at a culmination of several of these lines. I was drawn there for the Sacredness of Life event, where I was able to heal parts of me that I didn't even know existed. Damanhur is a sacred community, and there I learnt some really deep truths - truths that I am so happy to be able to share with you. In fact, I was so impacted that I'm actually going back to Damanhur for the next full moon event, to help me release in my own healing on these travels. I want to learn as much as I can to help you, and also myself through the shift that's going to be happening in the world. So, if you know of a place that feels or sounds like Damanhur, please let me know - that could be the next stop in my travels. Thanks for listening! Next time on the podcast, I'll give an update on what I learned from my second journey to Damanhur. In the meantime, if any of this resonates with you - if you're stuck in a challenge, or you're disconnected from yourself - please reach out to me or someone you trust. It's important to work through those feelings - don't deny yourself your own life force, because you deserve to thrive. Acknowledging your feelings - not changing them, but just talking about them - is the first step. If you feel pulled to do so, you can check out more about Damanhur at https://damanhur.org/en/ Connect with Tracy Instagram/Facebook: @dr.tracydebi www.atelierix.co To work with Tracy, you can book a call here: https://calendly.com/drtracydebi/fit-ability-call Spirit of Success is a podcast creating a platform for honest conversations sharing the real life stories behind personal transformations.

In this sobering episode, Elijah challenges Vanessa to find the perfect horror pairing for the wine-soaked martial arts masterpiece that is Drunken Master 2. After some frank talks about addiction (Sorry, Grandma!), Vanessa counters with another all-time cinematic classic of violence and spirits, The Shining. But aside from their mutual love of a stiff drink, how much do Jack Torrance and Wong Fei Hung really have in common? Does alcohol make Elijah better at fighting? And is Vanessa really who she says she is? Hear the answers to all these questions and more, in this week's double-feature discussion. The official snack pairing of Drunken Master 2 and The Shining is drunken noodles and an unrelated side of french fries with ketchup. (Best served between 2 and 3am, somewhere between the bar and your house) This episode was brought to you by Emilio. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/vanessa-gritton/support
The latest episode of the podcast which asks; if David picked potatoes on Jack Heap's playing field for one hour, how many Fumanchews would he able to cram into his gaping maw? Once again, Pop-Crazed Youngsters, Team Chart Music has returned to the safety of the late Seventies, and your panel is a) having their crayons thrown out of the window after an incident that could have been ripped from The Shining, b) being disappointed by Scalextric, and c) getting their arse tanned over an art installation on some concrete staircases. And all the time, the terror of Punk is looming, and no-one – particularly the canine population – is safe.As it turns out, the only Punk-free zone at this time is the episode of The Pops we're about to get stuck into. Like David's Scalextric, the show – in Robin Nash's safer-than-safe pair of hands – is running on rails by now. Unlike David's Scalextric, everything fits together, and nothing is skidding off the table and smashing against the wall. This is Top Of The Pops in its purest form, Pop-Crazed Youngsters, and we savour every mouthful of it for over six hours.Musicwise, it's a veritable bestiary of Pop Gargantua, with Xmas on the way, some huge LP drops this week, and the Monsters of the Hit Parade already starting to fight over your forthcoming record token. Paul Weller makes a doomed attempt to get the BBC to post his guitar to his girlfriend. The Carpenters say hello to some aliens. The Barron Knights dare to have a pop at The Old Sailor. Freddie Mercury pitches up dressed like a bottle of Sheridan's. Legs & Co hit up a sari shop in Shepherds Bush for a game of Sexy Lady Croquet. Status Quo predate Abba with an avatar bassist. Actual David Bowie pitches up to the studio, but can't be bothered to button up his cuffs. Showaddywaddy have a group huddle. And Abba get down to a proper session of Scandinavian Sorry. All brought to you by Peter Powell in his debut TOTP appearance, and he immediately hits the ground running, even if he has to be nudged by the gallery into putting himself about with the maidens of the studio.David Stubbs and Taylor Parkes join Al Needham for an intense drill into '77, veering off on such tangents as the Great Dog Collar Crimewave of Coventry, why trying to crush a tennis ball on the school playground in order to impress girls is a wrong ‘un, NASA convincing aliens that British people are big Medieval jessies, the ELO-Faust War, Dave Lee Travis annoying Brian May, a review of Dave Bartram's 2005 travelogue of caravan parks, Bruce Foxton stroke fiction, and the GOLDEN FLEECE OF CHART MUSIC has been located.

We've been doing this podcast for a number of years at this point. Yet, I have never been part of a retrospective that is as unpredictable as this one. After Adam shares the story of how he saw this for the first time (hint, it involved me), we get into the crazy making of Kubrick's one entry in the horror genre, The Shining. Is the casting as Nicholson as detrimental as King has made it out to be? Is this really a movie designed 'to hurt people? Or, is it the horror masterpiece that AMC special after AMC special have pointed out countlessly? Download below to find out!

He's back! That's right, Stephen King is the subject of an episode once again. And ol Tricky Stevie is being accused... of murder! Or, well, maybe manslaughter. The wildly talented Nikki Osborne is on the 'cast this week to talk about the theory that Stephen King deliberately caused the death of Stanley Kubrick. Why? Because he freakin hated his adaptation of The Shining. And he may have had a point! We're really getting into it this week, with some film theory, another bad take from Katelyn about art, a discussion of diseases of the heart, and of course a heaping helping of love for Shelley Duvall.
In which a director's cut almost causes a divorce... ...but thankfully Mike Flanagan's DOCTOR SLEEP is so good that both your hosts remain married. The tragedy of our respective wives lives is our listeners gain as we do a poor job of maintaining our glee for Stephen King's course correction of THE SHINING cinematic universe. However... we still love Stanley Kubrick's classic horror film. And we love Ewan McGregor as the grown up Danny in a sequel to said classic. We even love Rebecca Ferguson in that ridiculous hat!

Keith Gordon and Jamey Duvall join Mike to discuss the film. Interviews include Piper Laurie, William Katt, Nancy Allen, Joseph Aisenberg (Studies in the Horror Film: Carrie), and Joe Maddrey (Adapting Stephen King: Volume 1, Carrie, 'Salem's Lot and The Shining from Novel to Screenplay).
