Unknown:

Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration somewhere between science and superstition such sights to show you strange aeons. Welcome to strange aeons radio. That's Eric over there. Hey, luda. That is Vanessa. Hello, I am Kelly. Hey, you guys, you guys, Eric and Vanessa know this and a few other people know this. I have written a novel what it is my first novel, and it is going to be coming out sometime in 2024. But because I am insane, yeah, I have decided, what was that? I'm sorry. Continue. Hold on, I have decided to make this a lot tougher on myself. Because I am going to release this novel prior to its release in five monthly installments, in a very limited capacity of only 33 copies per installment. And if you go to my website written by Kol, young, you will be able to basically hit a Pay Pal button, there was only 33 slots available. And quite honestly, there's less than 33 slots available because a couple of people got advance reading copies of the first installment and have reached out and said please sign me up for full subscription. Yeah, do they're gonna be $15 apiece, plus shipping and handling, probably a $20 investment every month. Now, at the end of this, you will have spent you know, $80 on a or what $100 on a on a novel. And that seems like too much to me. But it is a very limited edition novel it is signed by the author myself and the cover artists Wade Chitwood, it will be numbered one through 33. And when you hit that button, I will give you the number that you are starting from number one and going all the way to the end. And you will get a you will get that number on all five installments. So you'll have a matching set of these. And it's it's really cool. And it's it's made so limited, because two reasons I think that I think limiting things like this is a really neat collector's thing for you know, collector nerds like myself, and I am just always trying to do stuff that I would like to have. And be I limited internal combustion to 99 copies, which means I made you know, several trips to the post office that I realized I don't want to make as many trips to the post office this time. So this is kind of also on me. Also, if you're international. You feel like you have to do this. Reach out to me and I will make it work. I know there are some people that I've said I don't want to do this for and it's ridiculous. You know, I sold some array sent some stuff to rob Corliss in Australia. And it was a $70 shipping fee. So you know, we can talk about it. If it's something you really feel like you need full disclosure, the full novel will come out sometime probably summer 2024. And it will be regular priced. It will be you know, whatever 1199 novel. If you feel like this is too much to spend, then please wait for the novel. I'm not making any money on this. So you're not really supporting me. It's just a cool little collectible. You're not selling this well at all. I will say having seen some of the like early copies of these chat books. They're so fucking cool. Yeah, really cool. Rad. Great. You've definitely spent a lot of time on this a lot of energy and a lot of you're already our artistry and, you know, vision is cool to check out in real life. So support our friend who's an artist who gets depressed, probably show advices probably should have asked Vanessa to make this announcement next time. Don't do this when the novel comes out. In other words, please do not buy my serialized novel that is out like immediately so I'm making this announcement as we're pre recording it. The button will be live when you hear this. If it's Thursday that you listen to this episode when they first dropped it will be there when you go to my website. I'm also going to post Thursday on Facebook that I am putting it out there. This will sell out. Kind of the point of it was I didn't want to have extra copies laying around. Yeah. And if you were on a website and there is a sweet looking lady on there, you are on the wrong Kol young writer, please readdress yourself. My website is written by k l young.com. And it has a lovely photo of myself taken by my dear friend Carlos. Eric just announced to me that this episode comes out October 26, which means that's when these books will be coming out. October 26, they will ship sometime in November and then you know, you'll get a basically a PayPal invoice from me on December 1 or whatever. And assuming you pay that, I will send you the next chapter. And that will happen for five months and will not happen after that. So that's how it works. So it is it is a really cool horror story. I really dig it and I hope you dig it. Can you can you dig? You guys? The lowest fruit? Always? Oh, boy. You ran right into it. Oh my god, an apple shape on your head. Okay, all right. That was the shameless promotion part of the episode. You guys I Saw movie. Ooh. Now I'm not sure why I saw this movie, but I saw it. It is called the nun to Oh my god. tell you why. Because the rotten tomatoes for this was 43% and 80% with the audience, okay. And I was like, okay, is this just somebody you know, having a good time with a film? You know, which is what I like to do. I watched it. I liked it. Really? Yeah. Did you see the first one? Yeah, yeah, I hated the first one. Okay. Now, I'm not gonna say this is a stellar movie or anything like that. But as far as the expanded conjuring universe goes, this is better certainly than the last couple of those movies. It's not the first time they've released a better sequel to the original. Like when Flanagan did, right he, yeah, much better. I don't know. I mean, the movie, the original movie must have made enough money that they said we're going to give it a sequel because I remember thinking that movie was trash. Yeah, after this movie. I was like, Well, you know, I'll watch another nun movie. Because there was some fun stuff in it. It is not a scary movie at all. It's almost a horror action film but what Blumhouse has become a lot of ways Sure. Yeah. And the nun monster is cool looking you know, so I I had a good time with it the nun to I am shocked I knew you would be shocked Well look, it's no saw x I was gonna say it's got to be better than six. You know, what I loved is you came on here and just trashed that film. And then the next day it came out and the Rotten Tomatoes critics evidence 70 And the audience has it at like, 92 People love it. Yeah. This is I understand that I am not the audience. I'm very aware. But I'm just saying For me it was a piece of trash movie. Well, my time back um, so initially, I was almost suckered almost suckered into watching a movie, almost. That has shown up on a couple of my friends like must watch for Halloween or for October or, you know, this was such a surprise fun film. I was like, You're gonna talk about a movie you didn't want? Yes. Okay. And just No, no, let's be clear. So I started who be Halloween. Oh, no. Forgot what? Who be Halloween starring Adam Sandler. Netflix. Yeah, I got maybe 10 minutes in there were fart jokes. I mean, he's doing a fun like, maybe not so mentally capable, man accent it was it was bad. And I was getting so unhappy that my husband was like, we can just turn it off. And I said, No, no, I can I can do it. And he's watching this movie. Like, okay, so instead wait a second was Austin having a good time with it? He was having a good time watching how unhappy well this is the basis of a strong relationship. I think he was kind of curious about like, how this was gonna go over because I had suggested it and then watching maybe become very visibly irritated. He was like, I don't know if he would have naturally liked it or not, frankly. But anyway, so I'm going to talk about something else because that movie is not for me at all. So instead, I continue to watch for the House of Usher, which I'm not fully all the way through yet, but it It's so fucking magical. I really like it. It is. I would say, I haven't finished it yet. But if Flanagan has a masterpiece I would have to say this is it. Yeah, it's what three and a half episodes four and a half episodes into it and it's just like holy shit. This is incredibly credibly well done. Yeah, you can see why after watching the first two episodes that fantastic fast. I was like, this is the best thing I've seen. Yeah. Oh my god. Yeah, I love all of the poll references throughout I mean, this is this is very, very broadly the story the the Fall of the House of Usher, but he's put in all of these other post stories into it and I'm just like, wow, this is just the amount of work that went into writing this out is crazy. I've got to like read more po clearly because like I'm just I'm just enjoying it from knowing the vague vaguest of references and being like, oh, there's you know, a wall that's been cemented in and there's a raven here and there's a strange you know, ticking sound and I haven't seen all those the cat so there's there's like little things in here that I'm noticing that I think that there's probably a lot and this Oh, the titles of the episodes are Yeah, yeah, very big easter eggs. The the Rue Morgue one I think was one of my favorites. And then The TellTale Heart was also like a, a shocking one for me. And I was like, holy shit. I love this. And this is how anxiety works. You know? I'm getting towards the end of it. And I'm like, don't fuck this up Flanagan. This is the best thing I've seen in forever. You better nail this Landon. Yeah. So so mad at this man because I'm like anyone who calls his own films, part of the flan averse should not be any good at what he does. And yet I'm just so suckered in, I think. Maybe it was like his wife one night was going to sell this marvel marvel verse. If I dare you to go on to a podcast or something and call yourself the flight averse. I can see her doing it. She's like a sassy lady. And I'm like Rob Zombie. She can act. So good. I can see why he keeps using her. And I love how much fun she is having it all of his actors, frankly, like they are unrecognizable from one show to the next and just white like midnight mass, which which is still my favorite. It just got me so well. But the cop and that which I just completely fall in love with here is this like, petulant drug induced, shitty dude. Man and I'm just like buying it, you know, and I feel like most acting, you get sucked into a look or a type or whatever, and you can't move and from this, it's like, wildly different from one to the next. He has obvious respect for the actors he works with. He feels that they can. He feels they can do whatever they need to do because he's sure he's working with the same people. Yeah. The greatest delight to me was you know, in like episode two, finally realizing I was looking at Mark Hamill. Oh, yes. Arthur Pym, the lawyer looking at him going. I know this guy from somewhere. But his voice is so strange. And His acting is so weird that I couldn't put it together. So I'm just just absolutely in love with it. I love that he folded Mark Hamill is so good. So I was listening to the last episode we did where you were talking about this. And you had also mentioned 30 coins, and I'm like, Oh, come on. 30 coins can't wait. Cannot wait. Yeah, I cannot wait for you guys to see that because it is also incredible. But cool. Yeah, yeah. Well, on another one. I think we've all seen no one will save you. Yes. The alien Home Alone forgetting to talk about this. Now's your chance. So as the true horror person of aliens, what did you think of? I mean, it was a little rough at first. Yeah. tough for me. And it's always gonna be tough, especially if you have grace in it. It's a lot. But once the Lord started opening up further and you realized that the horror was maybe perhaps not quite what you thought it was. No, yeah, that really changed my perspective and my fear levels of the actual aliens. So yeah, I don't know how much spoilers we really wanted to hear. But When has that ever stopped us? That's true. Well, I think a lot of what I liked about it was Caitlin Devere. Sir, performance so I'd watched previously on justified where she played a several years ago, so she's much younger, but she played a a drug dealer who was just constantly trying to be saved, and she would not let herself be. She was just phenomenal in that so as soon as I recognize where I'm going, Okay, I am I am in for this because I think she can support a film and she's she can support Yeah, so good with so little dialog. Yeah, almost almost none. That's pretty interesting. I liked much of this. I wanted the ending to be a little darker. Yeah, ending that was kind of dark. I wanted it to go a little darker, especially from the guy who had done like his last two movies I loved he did love and monsters really loved and then what was the one with the kids heads exploding? Oh. starts with an S spontaneous, spontaneous. Yeah, that was good. That was really good, too. And I didn't think this was as good as either of those. And I thought that the aliens you know, you get that CGI going in? It's like, Oh, almost almost. She did some good work with what was very obviously some roofs. He was like, okay, yeah, but if she doesn't get an Emmy nom for this, I will feel like, you know, we have to riot or something. She was spectacular. I wouldn't count on an award ever. But I would have gotten me in my heart. There you go. There you go. She gets a Charles Dexter award. Just placed onto the side for Yeah. So I mean, it had moments it was like I said, it's kind of home alone with. Yeah, I think it works. Overall. I've seen some per usual anything that comes out. And people initially say this is great. You've got on No, it's not. Right. Like, I've yet to read a reason that I necessarily disagree with. You know, that's some people are saying is wrong with them and why they didn't like it. Yeah, but that didn't make the movie shitty. Yeah, the effects are a little rough. Yeah, there's some weird stuff going on. So I just love how she is so reactive at all times, physically. And you're like, man, like she's surviving something. Pretty much no one can survive just because she can't help herself. She just has to react. And that that was just a really cool part of the story. Rebecca McKendree on color out of space, who made a great observations, like there's a dark story element to her history. That's dark enough to where, you know, whatever else happens to me for the rest of my life. I'd right here. I'm just I can deal with it. Because I dealt with that. Good point. Exactly. Exactly. You know, I don't think that Hulu gets talked very often about their originals. But you know, like the Hellraiser one I thought was good, but not great. But pray was fantastic. This is really good. And I I sure hope that they are able to continue pumping out this kind of stuff. Well, they've got some kind of joint deal with Disney at this point. So I don't I don't know for a while. They're ABC. Yeah. I see is Disney and that's just the Disney wasn't streaming. So Hulu was separate. Once Disney kicked in, right away they had subscribed to Hulu, and Disney and like, that's a weird combination. Yeah. Yeah. So no one will save you on Hulu. I think that's a great Halloween feeling. Yeah, absolutely. I'm going to change gears. You guys. Vanessa and I were talking off the air and I realized I probably have to bring this to everyone's attention. Sure. Okay. This. This is Chapter 29 of the decline of Western civilization is a series on Netflix and british series called Naked attraction. Oh, Jesus. Oh my god. I haven't seen it. But you told me about it. So yeah, this is like a dating game type show where they bring in a man or a woman. And they have told the producers what they look for physically in a person. And then they have these five boxes, that you can see the silhouettes of people behind and they slowly raise the level of the boxes. So you can see the completely nude people underneath, but only to a point. So we'll go up, you know, just to their stomach or something. And so here's, here's five people with their vaginas and penises hanging out. And this person then talks with the, the host of the show, and they go around and she says what do you like about this penis? And she's like, well, it's a little small. I have to admit, for this one is that's that's a little intimidating. And you know, or the guy you know the same thing with the guy. There's a girl you know, you only see up to her stomach. So there's her vagina either with a huge bush or completely shaved and he'll say things like, oh, it looks like the meat spilling out of the buns here. It doesn't Oh my god. And you're you're watching this and you're, you're just going, what is this real, and it's not blurred right, it is not blurred. And so then after after seeing and the people who are being critiqued say nothing. So then they're like, let's raise it a little bit more, and they raise it, you know to about the neck. So now you can look at their tits, or their man boobs, or whatever, and tattoos and all this stuff, and just all commenting on that. And then, you know, as this process goes, she has to eliminate people one after another until she's just left with two and when there are two, then she has to get naked. And they all stand there naked. They all comment on each other's physicality. And then she has to send one of them away. And then they go on a date with clothes on. What this is on Netflix, there are six seasons on Netflix. But there are 16 seasons total. And I could only make it through the first 14 seasons before I said, I've had enough. No, in all honesty, I watched two episodes. And then I called a few people and said, This is not a recommendation. But I do feel like you need to be aware of this. Oh my God, because it's possibly the most horrifying thing I've ever seen. And it's so uncomfortable. The things that are being said, right in front of these people, you know, at one point you finally get to hear them talk. And that is also quite illuminating. I mean, I feel like that it's so the opposite of the other Netflix show. Yeah. It'd be that before. It's like, oh, that's the opposite of the one Vanessa. Yeah. which I like because they can't judge each other physically. But then of course, it all falls apart when they did see each other and they aren't physically attracted. Right? This is, like I said, not a recommendation. I urge everyone to watch one episodes so that you can share the pain. Oh, my god. It's so uncomfortable. And I'm like, what have we what have we come to? This is why the terrorists hate us. Yeah. I when I was working for and Technicolor, one of the shows that I had to QC was something called style by jury. And it was like a bunch of people behind the glass. And it was like a one way glass and they would see somebody sit down. And they would just slag them off physically. They're talking about how they're ugly. They're frumpy, not only physically how they look, but also how they dress, and maybe some improvements they could make. And then the rest of the episode, which was only a half hour long. If that was they would give them a makeover, right? So they would re dress them. They would give them a makeup over. And then they would do plastic surgery. Oh my Yeah, I remember us had a show like that, too. I think it is the US show. Yeah, it was the worst show I had ever seen in my entire life dream makeover. It wasn't part of the extreme makeover series. But it was like in that vein of that era. And the surgeries were so fast and so bad, that no one ever looked better after and it was just heartbreaking. So like that. That's the throwbacks I'm getting from that. I feel like this could be your new number one worst show you've ever watched. I don't think I can even try. I don't want to see that much stuff from people. I don't swing and meet. I don't want to see it. I don't want to know it's one thing if it's like part of a story, and you're like, Okay, well, I guess I'm seeing this dudes thing or the chicks, whatever. One of the guys had a pretty impressive dog. And I'm like he had given that a couple of yanks before this thing hold up. But anyway, the most, most impressive was the elephant face tattoo. That was a rounded, ah, Dom being of course, the the trunk of the elephant. And they asked people, you know, what is your favorite thing about yourself? And what's your least favorite thing? And he said, Well, my least favorite thing is probably the tattoo, you know, not not the best decision I ever made. You know what I like? A little better for no kidding. I still don't think that I could be with somebody who's got a tattoo that turns their genitals into the face of whatever that tattoo is. Well, I mean, you don't know anything about the person. That's, well that's it. They go on a date. And sometimes it goes well, and sometimes it doesn't. But then they check in a month later and say you guys continuing to see each other or not. And of the two episodes. One was continuing to see each other had really made a strong connection. Wow. And then the other one had fizzled out on that date. I bet. Yeah. So tier three is yeah, good times. It's called Naked attraction before it's on your Netflix. You know if what you're looking for is full frontal nudity, you get a lot of that. Oh, Oh, I just want to barf. Okay, so I saw something I've been meaning just hatkoff for a little bit. And I think you guys have finally gotten around to checking out or at least maybe Kelly has VHS at five. I have seen that. Yeah, yeah, I saw that too. So out of the VHS segments, do you are out of the VHS series movies? How does this one hold up for you guys? You tell us first. I really like it. I think that I don't know if it's my favorite or not. But it's, it had some really strong segments continuously. And I like the interspersing story, which really does not have anything to do with like the origins of this VHS tape necessarily. But like it was a lot of fun. You say you can't tell if it's your favorite or not? Which one is as close to being this good? Well, they all blend together. That's why I'm saying it's hard. Yes, I'm like, there's certain ones I really really enjoy. But I segments, but I don't know which VHS tapes. How many movies are there in the franchise now? I don't know. Five or six of them any? I remember watching the first one. Yeah, not being impressed. And trying to watch the second one and not finishing. And I watched this one because it was free on shutter. And I enjoyed it a lot. Yeah, I asked here. It was pretty fun to watch. I like this one a lot. This might be one of my probably my favorite segment overall. Yeah, as far as a movie, to watch end to end. My favorite one I've had the wraparound was incredibly well hands. Really good. Like it took me a while to figure out oh, this is the rapper. Yeah, that's cool. Yep. Especially when they keep cutting away and you're like, Wait, what did that story finish? And there was a couple there was one other story that didn't finish immediately picked up as a different videotape. And I really I loved that one just because of the the world building that was done. So good. Such a small amount of time. Yeah, that was one of the first when it first cut off at the end gone. Oh, damn it. Make a feature out of that one. Oh, it's back. Yeah, and I don't know that it could handle being a feature. But it felt very much like a short story you would have read in one of those anthologies from the 80s. And I, I had a really good time with it. And I don't think technically, like we talked about the previous one. The biggest problem we both had with it was the very obvious overlays to create the look of VHS. Yeah, I think this one handled it very well. It felt really good. I felt very natural aspect ratio, whatever. That's whatever. I'm not worried about correct, but I don't care because it's a modern made film. But the effort to make it look like a VHS like when it was a really solid new one. It looked like a new one looks like it but then occasionally it would get completely fucked up. And that wasn't that consistent. Repetitive. Yes. Or no coming back and forth. Yes. I thought they did a good job. There were great. I agree. There were a couple of things. I mean, you guys know that I almost hate found footage kind of stuff. Yeah. And so this is always a hard one for me to ever get fully invested in. Especially when you know, the camera will suddenly go to somebody while something insane is happening. The camera will move over for a reaction shot. Somebody and I'm like, Okay, well, you have me and then you did this stupid thing. So there's stuff like that in there that I didn't like, but overall, especially for a free horror movie during the Halloween season. Yeah, you could do a lot worse than this. I think a lot of it is on shatter right. Yeah. VHS 85. Let's see. Okay, I watched a harrowingly unpleasant. Duck documentary. Oh, no. Monster inside America's most extreme haunted house. Okay. Russ McCamey. Here we say his last name guy. Is this been out for a little bit now? This is brand new. Thursday, I think okay. I don't know anything about it. See ever seen the the extreme haunted houses where people subjected themselves to eight to 10 hour experiences? Oh, God, no. I mean, it's flat out getting tortured. Yeah. And sometimes to the point of like pleading and stuff like that. And this guy is obviously found a acceptable way to get his psychotic nature out. Because it's brutal. And he makes you sign like these giant waivers and all this stuff about that and they're talking to a lawyer at one point sec. Really, if somebody wants to sue him, you this waiver is not going to hurt up in court considering some of the things he has done. Yeah. Um, as far as I can tell, it does not involve any sexual assaults, any rapes, although he might have done that outside of it with some of his groupies setting them up. When you say so is this documentary just kind of promoting his thing? Or is it it? No. Okay. I've seen he does promote he videotapes, everything he does. So he has hundreds of hours of video out there who first discovered a sicko a few years ago, watching YouTube. Is this trying to figure out if this was a movie reels like, Oh, my God, this guy's real. And he like doesn't charge for it. It's like dog food. Oh, get in. Yeah. And got got to get approved through the waitlist. And they interviewed people who'd worked one of the guys actually worked with him for a couple years till he hit a point where it's like, one of the people came out and he's like, I can't believe what you did that person physically. So I'm done working for you. Oh, wow. She was in the hospital, like puffy and all messed up. What the fuck? And he basically once he gets too much notoriety, or he just moves? Yes. I don't know where he is now. And, but he is allowed to continue doing this. This is not like yeah, this is not like a true crime documentary where he was tried and arrested for something. What the fuck? So do they talk to people who have gone through this? And then they recommend it? Or the other? Well, they she still has fans. Like if you go to the Facebook page, they're further defenders of what he does. But the people the main subjects of the documentary are people that like one of us was an ex girlfriend. And one was like somebody who they're all people that ended up working with him in some capacity for a little while. Okay. So it's a it's rough. And, like, Why? Why would anybody? I mean, I know people who've said I, when I talked to years ago would say, oh, yeah, I do it. No, no, no goddamn way I'm doing that. And I, I understand that we're all mentally different. And sometimes your capacity to deal with something needs something I will never understand. But there are, then they talk a little bit about the documentary, there are versions of what he's done, that are run by people that give you safety words and constantly give you. You're sure we keep going. And they're almost as brutal as he is. But he takes away that can there's no safe words, there's no basically getting out. I don't know how people just gets tired of them or something. I don't quite know how they end most of their sessions. The wild thing to me is I saw a documentary about haunted houses a couple of years ago. And it was about like, multiple and I think he was one of them. I forget another one you're talking about. Yeah. And it was uh, uh, you could tell that it was fucked up. I mean, I didn't think any of them looked particularly pleasing. They all seemed fucked up. But like his you could tell that it seemed bad but they weren't going there. They I don't think they showed quite how messed up it could be. So I'm who? I can't imagine looking further into that lens and seeing what he's doing these people can't wait to never watch this documentary. Yeah, my favorite thing about haunted houses is that they can't touch me. I love that. That's my favorite thing. I can stand there and I can look at them and assess their makeup and their fake weapons and I can know they can't touch me. Like that's what's great about a haunted house. You're allowed to be scared because it's safe. Like I don't for me, I don't fully grasp this like yeah, go ahead and beat me or lock me in something or waterboard me or make me eat the dog food I gave you you know like I don't understand that or feces or whatever else like I don't understand that but anyway, so I'll type but that's definitely not a Type I am leaning towards like cow Eric I thought I had brought us to a new low with naked attraction I guess not to watch that as a palate cleanser and Okay, is this the end of the month right? I mean, holy cow, you guys how about we take a little break? Oh, God, I can go screw up my brain. Yep. And then we come back we finish up our Ray Bradbury theater retrospective. In the instant of getting an idea, I go act it out on paper. I don't put it away. I don't delay. I don't put off to tomorrow, doing what I must do. Writing Now to find out what my sequence of needs, wants, desires with all its heart. And then it speaks, and I have enough brains to get out of the way and listen. And two hours later, sitting at the typewriter, you look at the paper and you say, Ah, so that's what I think about the death of Hemingway, is that how much I was hurt. So that we act out these tensions continually. We keep cleansing the stream just as any impurity running downhill in a river. By the time it travels, nine miles is purified. So the life of a man traveling to the sea, which is our inevitable death someday, purifies itself and must, because if you do not purify, these tensions remain in and turn him on yourself, and destroy you. The man who cannot live freely, is a sick man, the man who cannot cry and release his tears in that direction is a sick man. The man who cannot be violent, through exercise through sports, through acting out his violence and paper or painting or acting on a stage is a sick man. I've made the point on many occasions, that the only thing you're ever going to own in your life is your work. I own my books. The farmer who farms creatively and happily is a man that knows every stock of wheat or corn that comes up on his land because he has tilled these fields, because he has planted the seed because he has picked the fruit because he has painted the barn. That doesn't sound like much does it? But when you actually paint a house, I painted a house a whole house once I'd never done anything like it. It was hellish work. I hated every moment. But when I was over and stood back, it looked beautiful, and I was rather proud of myself. The house belonged to me suddenly. So we belong only by doing and we own only by doing and we love only by doing and knowing and if you want an interpretation of life and love, that would be the closest thing I could come to. Hello. Let's see who's called the strange aeons radio hotline. Hi strange aeons radio, Tom here, medium term listener, long term Vanessa enthusiast, calling him with a slight complaint about the shows format. I I love the second half of every show. I think the sub genres are brilliant. I love how you are surfacing films from the past that I'd never heard of, I found a number of hugely enjoyable films that I'd never have come across where it not for your, your brilliant work. My my complaint is really about the contemporary section of the show the front end, where you have this fixation on discussing every latest entrant into the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universe, I think these universes are ultimately going to be considered a totally irrelevant in the history of cinema. And that rather than sort of endlessly discussing, and indeed largely complaining about films that are not worth watching, it might be worth your while and ours to spend more time focusing on new releases that are actually good. And have some artistic merit. just food for thought. Keep up the good work. Oh, my God, first of all, thank you, Tom. Thank you for calling and leaving that voice. This was the problem at the Lovecraft Film Festival. The reason we know Joe Solomon is he was standing in line in front of me at the bar. And then he turned to say something. And I was just immediately enamored with his accent. And I said, yeah, why don't you come outside and join us? 99% of why I am such good friends with Tom. Nothing he could say, no matter how withering that I wouldn't just be like, Oh, no, it's fine. He, he also makes a very good point. But it is really funny. Because down at the Lovecraft Film Festival, you know, we see Aaron and Leah there. And Leah's just like, I fast forward. Right? You know, after you guys talk about your contemporary stuff. I don't care a bit about your topics. And so yeah, it's like the opposite buddy gets what they get out of it. I guess. You know, Carlos has been pushing us to make this to cut this into two episodes per week, right? One episode where we talk about what we've seen this week, the other episode, where we have our sub genres. And I've always thought that was a little harder. Now if we had a ton of advertising or something like that. I'd be more than happy to do that. But yeah, I think, Tom, I really appreciate your ideas. And I think that that fast forward button on your podcast player will serve you Well, here's here's my particular issue and the reason why I can't necessarily conform to the request, which I totally get. I only have so much time. Yeah. So if I see something and it sucks, it's kind of all I have to talk about. I think, to Tom's point, he's like, why would we bother to watch those movies? They seem to all be sucking lately. Do you all suck lately, but I keep having this little glimmer of hope that maybe they won't. And I know that it's not gonna get any better, but I can't help it. I did see that DC is blowing everything up for there. Like none of the people that have played any of their roles ran back for future films. And although like Well, yeah, that was the problem the actors you hired. Even even even while we're discussing your message, Tom, we couldn't stop. I was gonna say bye. Thanks for calling. Tom. Please call again. anytime you'd like. Yes. Yeah, I'll give you my regular number off there. Yes, we love you if you'd like to call the strange aeons radio hotline dial 253-237-4266. We have returned. So as everybody knows, this week, we have spent or this month that we have spent discussing Ray Bradbury theater. I called it the October country because that was one of my favorite anthology books have Ray Bradbury's. And in the late 80s and early 90s, there was something called the Ray Bradbury theater, seven seasons on HBO and then on USA Network 65 episodes all based on Ray Bradbury stories and all written by Ray Bradbury, which is kind of crazy. And a lot of them had an intro by Ray Bradbury, as Vanessa has lovingly recounted. Maybe not the best guy to be your narrator for your methodology series. No, he's no Rod Serling. He's no actor. But this will be the last week we're doing this. So Eric, you want to get us started off? What episode did you start with? Absolutely. And, you know, I gotta say listening so far at least have answered what you guys are talking about today. I think I did. Well, I've like really liked three of the four I watched and the third one is fine. This was the playground. People ask, where do you get your ideas? Right here. Oh, this is my Martian landscape. Somewhere in this room is an African Veldt. Just beyond perhaps his small Illinois town where I grew up, and I'm surrounded on every side by my magician's toy shop. I'll never starve here. I just look around. Find what I need. And begin. I'm Ray Bradbury. This is Well, right now what shall it be? Out of all this? What do I choose to make a story? I never know where the next one will take me. And the trip. Exactly one half exhilaration. Exactly one half terror. 1985 86 season one and two on all formats, episode two on all formats. So yay. So no matter where you look, this is season one, episode two directed by William Pruett, who is 27 episodes at goosebumps 95 396 10 episodes a Friday 13th series. The house by the lake and spasms. So nice. This was one of the few that had two writers so there's Ray Bradbury was one and Mark Mauceri helped on a on it. He did six episodes of this Ray Bradbury theater. Plus That's Hollywood and emergency exclamation point. This stars someone you may have all heard of William Shatner yeah thumbnail best known for 101 episodes of Boston Legal 18 episodes of Shit My Dad Says 90 episodes of TJ hooker. Yeah, four episodes of iron, iron side 253 credits overall. Wow. Also has Kate Trotter in it for episodes of the Friday 13th series. She's in tech war 25 episodes of kung fu The Legend Continues puppet to kill. You also have 199 109 credits. And finally Barry Flatman who is in SA three, the deadzone the original movie, five episodes of Fargo. Hell on the heels, the Battle of Mary Kay and X rated TV movie with 101 credits. So they weren't for the heavy hitters on this one. Eroding or Yeah, kind of like having the intro more than the ones that don't have it at all. Even if it is definitely a step down from Twilight Zone or Night Gallery or any of those bestows show starts with a little kid is being terrified on a playground getting bullied quite extensively and fade to William Shatner. So here's the little boy all grown up. The boy's mother has the Shatner's wife and boy's mother has died. And Shatner needs to learn to be a parent instead of just being his best friend. The his sister's living with them and helping with them so she spends a lot of time gone. Get over yourself. Take the kid down to the playground. It's alright kids play at playgrounds. And this is of course the same playground that he was brutally bullied up is when creepy as playground. It's like an inner city playground with all the it's all buildings around the sides of it. It's relatively small the ground is cement with some dirt thrown over the top of it. Everything's metal, the metal slide the metal swingsets just like cheeses. Bad is doomed and no parents. No parents at all. So that when they first go there and Shatner goes look at it see about his cape going to start out oh, it looks just fine. And then things start to fall apart. Kids are falling on the ground because they're beating each other up. And it just looks like a torture chamber going on down there as he watches. So they do like the sign at the entrance use this area at your own risk. shanor keeps his kid from playing as he's looking around the playground. But all as he's looking around all the kids to stop playing and kind of just watch him. What are you doing here? And somehow a little kid knows his name calls him out. Hey, Charlie, who are you and he assumes he's one of his co workers, kids or something like that. So I met him that way. And as he this progresses in the scene to the kids kind of turn into these weird zombie kind of looking creatures and come after him in the playground. So crabs this kitten runs away. They also indicate this is hitting him so hard. He's having problems at work and life in general. And he relays to his guests. It's not his sister, however, whatever the relationship is that he was brutally bullied as a kid and found no help from his family and has now okay, I guess I need to face this I need to go to the playground and figure out what's going on. This one I'm going to sit with go and watch it because the ending is so weird. You get a great Shatner kind of moments when he's going down the slide. It floods down the slide. I gotta see this now it is really, really solid. And the ending is really interesting. So it's kind of like that what's going on? Oh, shit. Okay. So I'm gonna leave that one empty just because it's so interesting. And the way it happens. Visually is so cool. Sounds so much cooler than saying, Well, this is what happens. So go watch this one. And my first note, pick the good one. The show in the shelter kid is about six, maybe seven years old. In the original story, Ray Bradbury wrote him as a three year old and whoa, that's that's a little young. Even, you know, even by previous generations use of playgrounds, sending a three year old alone on the playgrounds, pushing it so I'm glad they aged him a little bit because that would have looked very weird, right? Especially with the older kids. It was a different time. The original story as written by Ray Bradbury is still better. Okay? It's really, really good. It leans in a lot more, I think it's, it's kind of long, it might be like 10 pages. It's a little longer than the other ones. But it leans in a lot more to the character, Shatner's plays mental capacity and everything that's going on. He took the elements of that story, unlike a couple, you've talked about where he really liked and they just didn't mesh. He took the elements read that wrote them in there and reworked them very, very well for TV. So I think it's a great translation of the original story. While we talked a couple episodes ago, I think about, you know, he, he lived at home with his parents since he was like, 27. He's married the first girl he dated and all that. So I wonder if he was horribly bullied as a kid. I mean, I feel like that's just a rite of childhood passage, right? Everybody was right. I was. Yeah. Well, yeah. We all were at some point, but there's also the extremes. Yeah, some kid is focused on one guy and his friends beat him up every day. Yeah. But so I think I'll do one of our final trivia notes here. By Kelly, Lala. Something Wicked This Way Comes was adapted for a low budget 1972 British film. I have not done this I hadn't either produced by the Forest Phil Hill Film Unit and drama troupe and directed by Colin Finborough that is something that we should have our listeners hunt out and then send Sentosa Michael probably be able to find that right. Challenge Challenge is thorough, and I wish they'd remaster and release the the early 80s Disney horror films that one and once the other the watcher in the woods. Yeah, I think something wicked this way comes is on Disney. Is that not a remastered? Is on Disney plus. I mean, it's probably looks good because they do pretty good stuff. But yeah, I'm still that physical media guy. Yeah, I have a copy with cool extras or something like that. I don't blame you. That sounds like a great story. I'm definitely gonna look that one up. Turn your buzzer off, Eric. Sure. And I am resetting it. 10 minutes for Vanessa. Vanessa. I hope you had a great one also, um, you know mine. Mine was pretty interesting. I will say this entire month has been like box of chocolates you just never know. Then it's been a really fun experiment. This week, I went with the crowd. I'll never starve here. I just look around. Find what I need. And begin. I'm Ray Bradbury. This is Well, right now, what should it be out of all this? What do I choose to make a story? I never know where the next one will take me. And the trip. Exactly one half exhilaration, exactly one half terror which is a really early one, season one, episode three. Right after the one I just talked about. Directed by Ralph L. Thomas, who has 13 credits, including young Ivanhoe, the TV movie, a young Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's court and ticket to heaven. Written of course by Ray Bradbury, but also co written by Mark missa Messari. I think we'd mentioned this at some other point before he co wrote on six episodes of Ray Bradbury theater. He also has to credit for emergency. That's Hollywood. Guy Yeah, same guy. Starring Nick Mancuso has 158 credits to his name including under sesion under siege to also take it to heaven. Weird wonder how you ended up on this one. For episodes of the firm as peanut eating man, for he didn't get a name. He just sits there eating peanuts, I guess. Two episodes of The Outer Limits 13 episodes of matrix not that one. In 23 episodes of Stingray as Stingray I like he's in about four to five films per year, none of which I've ever heard of. So he's working hard on something. Also co starring RH Thomas who has 100 credits, including an with an e 27. episodes, eight episodes of October 19 7017 episodes of Aven. Leah and also ticket to Heaven weird. This story follows. Definitely. Yeah, I don't know, it's an eerie one. It's a long area one not sci fi like the others that have been kind of seeking out. This one begins with a big party that seems to be letting out of a townhouse somewhere and everyone is waving goodbye to Joe. Joe jumps in his cool white car, and he's driving around a very, very empty city pretty badly. Like, I don't know if the insinuation is, he's drunk or what. But he sees drift in a fair amount. He's really not stopping at stoplights or signs, just generally very loose style of driving, what's going to happen? Who knows, maybe a dog will run out into the road, he'll veer off and flip his car. So of course he does. We see him sort of crawl out with some blood on his forehead and a crowd of forms around him. And they're all kind of looking at him. And then an ambulance comes through and makes his way and gets taken off. He wakes up in a hospital and he's sees the spinning wheel of the car. And, you know, he starts talking the doctor and trying to remember what happened. And he's like, how long does it take for a crowd to for added accident? The doctors like oh, no, weirdo. It's just like, a couple of minutes. He's like, how long does it take for a wheel to stop spinning? Because that's about the length of time he's like, What? 20 seconds? 30 seconds? And the guy's like, I don't know, a couple minutes. It's fine. Don't worry about it. He's like it was it was two in the morning. He's like, Yeah, don't worry about it. Whatever. Go home. So this guy, Joe, he goes back to a studio. He's an artist. He works with neon. I guess they don't ever quite say what he does. But late 80s. Yeah, yep. Yeah, he's doing a big project. And his friend slash coworker shows up and talks to him like, Man, I can't believe you're back at it. They start talking about the accident. And he's like, how long does it take for a crowd? And weird, they hear an accident outside the studio. So they go to look. And Joe is just obsessively looking, where are these people coming from? Where are they running into? And how long does it take any time's it. And sure enough, 20 seconds, a huge crowd is formed. He starts to become obsessed with this concept. And he feels like he might even be recognizing some of the people who were in one crowd and another. So he manages to get these cassette tapes that they filmed previously have accidents in the last couple years, for some reason, and the crowd reaction shots and he recognizes the same, like four, six people over and over again. And he also finds out that there's an accident report that all of those people were killed in accidents. Oh, no. So it's like you got a theme known from yours. He decides he wants to hunt these people down and find out what's going on. And of course, his friend is like, that's a stupid idea. You should not do that. And then is immediately like, I'll go with you sounds great. As these episodes are, so he somehow pretty quickly finds the one of the the old man who is always looking. And he follows him down an alleyway and then sees a big dude at the end of the alleyway and runs away. And all of a sudden he sees the other people who are in the accident. They're all kind of around and he keeps running away because he's really scared and I guess he just chickened out and he doesn't want to talk to them. He jumps his car to drive away and what should happen? He gets in an accident. Why Oh, weird. He crawls out but someone else does not survive. Perhaps his friend. And perhaps his friend is now maybe in the crowd. So freeze frame really weird freeze frame like Photoshop, like, it's like he becomes blue. And like outlines and like looks like there's weird dents in his face. It's a bizarre choice right there. I like the thing I like about this episode is really eerie. It's really not explained. And I do like that part. Although it is maybe a little too loose because at points it's like are these people angels? Are they bad? He thinks they're really bad and that they're sucking the life out of people and killing them. But I'm like, I don't know that. I feel like we could have explored that a little more. Um, decisions that are being made are way too fast friend not onboard super onboard. Chase this old man down the street Oh, nevermind actually I'm terrified I'm running away from the old man is way too quick and I think that's my problem with a lot of these episodes is I feel like maybe the the story needs to be truncated in such a way that we didn't have to jump so quickly from thing to thing. The only piece of trivia I have on this is it is from a short collected it's a short story collected in 1955. See October country and also collected in the weird. Yeah, I ended up watching this one also zero, and I got I liked it. Yeah, I thought it was eerie. It is it is eerie. I don't know I have things I like about it and things I like less about it. It's It's corny. Yeah, sure. I think that's the thing. The music is probably what it is. I think it's the 80s the music is your dad throughout this. Yeah, that's quite bad. It sounds like sitcom 80s music, the ones that have less music because the music I don't remember the music. I mean, most of the ones I've watched, I think that's a bonus. So I'm going to do one extra piece of trivia from Kelly's sheet here. Bradbury suffered a stroke in 1999 that left him partially dependent on a wheelchair. Despite this, he continued to write and even had written an essay for The New Yorker about his inspiration for writing published only a week prior to his death. He made regular appearances that science fiction conventions until 2009 When he retired from the circuit. Oh, cool. We're getting towards the end of his life there. Yeah. Okay, turn your buzzer off yeah, go give myself 10 minutes. I got a Grand Slam for my last round good. I chose the lonely one. People ask where do you get your ideas? Right here. All this is my magician's toy shop. I'm Ray Bradbury. This is. This was season six episode one. So I think there were only six even seasons because this is the last season season six episode one. It was aired July 10 1992. Directed by Ian mewn. Who has 16 credits. Came a hot Friday bridge to nowhere and the grass cutter. Oh yeah, I didn't recognize any of his stuff. Written by of course Ray Bradbury. Starring the lovely Joanna Cassidy 177 credits tons of TV, but also the glove which is a cool vigilante movie that I like wheels of terror, Ghosts of Mars the grudge to most recognizable as the replicant Zora in Blade Runner that runs through all the glass, Harrison Ford kills, also starring Sheila McCarthy, who has 152 credits, including laugh of heaven, which is a really cool adaptation of Ursula K linguine. novel, The day after tomorrow, and anything for Jackson. And then last is Maggie Harper, who has 11 credits, including ready to run the other side of heaven and 63 episodes of Shortland Street, which is one I'm not familiar with. I've never heard of that. Okay. The lonely one. Welcome to the town of Greentown. It is a lovely little place except for the fact that there seems to be a serial killer walking the streets at night and killing women excuse exclusively. And for this reason, the police are asking everyone to not walk at night if they don't have to and under no circumstances should they be walking alone, because that is how the killer whom they have dubbed the lonely one has gotten each of his victims so far. We meet three older women in this town, not old women, but women in their 30s and 40s. Who should probably be smarter than they are in this story. The women are Francine Helen and Lavinia who we can tell is just a troublemaker. She's hot and loud and brassy. And just the kind of chick that gets me going. They have also just discovered the latest victim of the lonely one at the bottom of a popular walking ravine that has a long wooden staircase. So you think they'd be a little more careful of everything that is about to happen in this episode. And they've decided they're heading out to the movies Tonight, even though Francine is a little worried about being out after dark, Lavinia, she tells them they'll be fine and quit being a big pussy pretty much. She's, um, she's almost cruel in the way she treats her friends and her friends worry about this murderer, that they just found the latest victim of that morning. Like, I mean, I think that this is a reasonable worry to have, but are not Lavinia. They go to the movies, but it gets out somehow later than they all thought it would. So it's quite dark out as they head home. And Francine and Helen live right next to each other. So that's not a problem as the three of them walk there. And then the two friends beg Lavinia to stay with them until morning. But she's like, You guys are scared of everything, I'll be fine. Of course, the walk home is already quite a bit different without her two friends. And she keeps hearing noises. This episode does a really nice job of building tension. So even when there is a friendly police officer who shows up and offers to walk her the rest of the way home, you're immediately suspicious of this column. And you know, you're like, don't do it lovey. So somehow, though, she ends up in the same ravine with the steps that they found the dead body and which is a little too convenient to me. Because this is kind of like the shortcut way. But there is a safe, well lit way. There's just a little longer walk. And you're like, oh, man, come on Lavinia. I get that you're an asshole, but you don't have to be stupid. Anyway, she starts going through the vein, and then up the stairs. And pretty soon she's hearing noises and everything. She is convinced that she's being hunted through the darkness in the woods around her. After a short time, she's now running and she's terrified. And it feels very much like someone who's behind her the way that you know, it's being shot. It looks like you're seeing somebody's point of view. It's really beautifully paced, very solid. And then she sees her house in the distance and she's gone for it. She pours on the speed running through the yard, you know, gets her keys out, fumbles with the keys on the door and everything finally gets in to the house and slams the door and locks you behind her. And we're all relieved, right? But she also feels a little foolish because she can see out the window that there was no one chasing her anyway. And that is because the lonely one has been waiting in her house this whole time for her to come home. Oh, sure. And that's where the episode ends. Really, really solid. I think I like this one best of all my choices. Certainly the best directed of the bunch. And because of the nonexistent effects and all of that stuff. I think the budget was spent on getting good camera shots and lighting I stuff like that. I will say this. I think the lonely one is a bad name for the police to call a murderer because as soon as you hear it, you're like, Oh, he's lonely. Yeah, totally just got Okay, Trivia This is actually based on just one chapter of Bradbury's novel Dandelion Wine, which was published in 1957. Most of the book is focused on the routines of a small town America and the simple joys of being a 12 year old boy. In 1971, the Apollo 15 astronauts named the moon crater dandelion to honor the novel. And then I found this one, this is really creepy. The lonely one name is actually based on a real criminal who was captured in Bradbury's hometown in 1928. Not a murderer though. After his arrest of previously unreported aspects of the lonely ones crimes finally appeared in the press, his name was Weyant. So starting in February 1928, he had broken into 33 places and businesses. Each time he broke in somewhere, he would write three letters, one was left for the owner of the premises, expressing his sympathy for their losses. The second was sent to the press telling them how he did it. And then a third letter went to the police telling them that they needed practice and solving crimes. Oh my god. letters were signed the loan they won. Wow. Yeah, very strange stuff. I really loved this last one. This was just really good. If a little unbelievable, but I could see how this is a single chapter and a novel and stuff like that. I had really hoped that my very favorite Ray Bradbury story would be in Ray Bradbury theater. It is a story called all summer in a day. And Vanessa, I think I told you about it when we were first starting this. It's about a classroom on Venus. And every 10 years or something, the sun is visible and it stops raining and the kids are all looking forward to it. And there's one little girl there who was born on earth so she remembers the sun and she's really really looking forward to this. And there's a couple of shitty kids in her classroom and they lock her in a closet while the sun is out. and they all go play outside and then they come back. And they kind of realized they forgot and left her in the closet all day. And it's just this heartbreaking story. And I was like, why wouldn't you do this one? Ray? It's, it seems very easy to do no dinosaurs. But then what is do super depressing? I don't know. It is a very heartbreaking story. I wonder if they did that one in something else, like the Martian Chronicles or something? It is. It was adapted into a couple of short films. I saw that and I watched a couple of them and what it really made me want to do was make it myself because I was like, nobody. Nobody did it. Right. I didn't cry once during the short films. Yeah, I have one last bit about Ray Bradbury. After passing. Numerous Bradbury fans paid tribute to the author upon his death, noting the influence of his works on their own careers and creations. Filmmaker Steven Spielberg said that Bradbury was his muse for the better part of a sci fi career. On the world of science fiction and fantasy and imagination. He is immortal. Writer Neil Gaiman felt that, quote, the landscape of the world we live in would have been diminished if we had not had him in our world. Unquote. author Stephen King released a statement on his website saying Ray Bradbury wrote three great novels and 300 great stories. One of the latter was called a sound of thunder. The sound I hear today is the thunder of giants footsteps fading away, but the novels and stories remain in all their resonance and strange beauty. That's almost like that guy's a writer are so weird. When you know when writers are complimenting you and your post mortem. That's pretty funny. Stephen King to I mean, come on, more popular writer in the world. For the last, what, 40 years, that buzzer ends our discussion of Ray Bradbury theater. I had a really good time with this. I would like to hear from the listeners and see if this was something fun. Yeah, if you like that, or if you went out and cut some that we didn't see that you thought were really good. Let us know because there's a fair amount of them. Yeah. Or if you want us to do something like this with another series to you know, cover for a month or something like that, because we're getting into kind of themed months if you're on the strange aeons radio talk page. We put up a poll to see what we'll be talking about in November. I was crossing my fingers for November. But video nasty November is what one out and so that's what we're going to be talking about all next month. Oh, yeah, that's gonna be kind of fun. Yeah, there's so there's a lot of movies in that. Most of them are like, Why did you put this on here? But some are definitely like, Oh, all right. Well, little spoiler you guys and I'm breaking this to you guys. For the first time. We're gonna do something just a tad different for Thanksgiving. Oh, so we'll see how that goes. I'm gonna be birds again. Yes. Okay. Maybe I'll finally do one that's good. That's a good bird room for change is not going to be birds. This is the part though, where we say thank you to everyone who is out there spreading the gospel of strange aeons radio, you had something about the Bradbury videos, I wanted to talk about audio versus video. It's going on now with our podcast. And you're right. I was complaining to Eric that I thought you know, I listened to the show back on my on the highest of technology on my Zune. And I thought that the trailers that Eric is having to create for these Bradbury episodes, were a little long, because obviously, the shows didn't have trailers themselves. And then he reminded me that though that was done for the YouTube listeners, and that that's an actual there's a visual component to why those are that long. So a few weeks ago or a few leave. A couple of weeks ago, I figured out that the process that he used to have to do to get the videos to work. Because originally way back when Hey, let's go behind the scenes here. This will be unfastened right here. I used to edit down the trailers down now I just verbally just play them. And then I realized you know if I'm just playing them, let's just put the video on because we got a lot of people on YouTube that are now checking it out. So these are a little weird what's going on is I play the intro for the first one and then the next two it's kind of the start to about to where you see Ray Bradbury's name written by and then I'll stop it that worked well for a couple I think the lake was definitely not one of the ones that that worked well for day long. Like little let sounds if you can get your ASMR moment in. I love the sound of water. So if you're curious about the trailers or something now you can go to our strange aeons TV on YouTube and actually see the trailers Let's just keep this boring discussion going is there's no kind of rights issues for playing this. Now. Generally the only rights issue you run into YouTube is music. Okay? So hit your heart for that. Well good enough.
