Boseman, Black Panthers and Rainbows at the angle of 42, a synchromystic map.

2020.09.02 07:45 qwertycoder Boseman, Black Panthers and Rainbows at the angle of 42, a synchromystic map.

We are all sad to hear about the death of Black Panther King Chadwick Boseman. He was a fine actor and played some of the most pivotal roles in his short span of making movies. And he was making some of these movies deep into stage three cancer all while keeping it a secret and smashing it in all of his roles.
Underneath everything there is a hidden saga being told. A strange world where everything is connected by some sort of energy that ebs and flows reality around in particular patterns.
I notice things and point things out that I find to be strange. Many people are quick to say that the things I bring up are “the work of the Illuminati” but I feel that it is no man or group that is running this algorithm of life and death, creation and destruction.
Ill start at the top of my research and just lay out the peculiar findings that I KNEW in my gut would be found. But then again everything is just coincidence......
The strangest thing happened when I looked up his birthday. I checked wikipedia and plugged in the date of birth till death day and saw 43 years.
Then I go to IMDB and also noticed many of the news outlets reporting “dies at 42” and “dies at 43” in about a half and half distribution.
Then almost as Im watching the edits begin and everything that once had his birthday at 11-29-1977 was now changed to 1978
This is not the first time this has happened and especially with someone with such a significant series of date counts attached to their birth and death days.
Born on the 333 day of the year and he lived 42y 8m 4w 2d But this is obfuscated with the alteration of his birthdate.
I stated that this wasn't the first time this happened as it happened with Joan Lee the wife of Stan Lee one of the co-creators of The Black Panther comic book series.

https://www.reddit.com/coincidence/comments/6mj1m9/joan_lee_birth_911_is_77y7m7d_from_911_until_he

Joans birthday 2-5-24 until 9-11-2001 is 77years 7months and 7 days inclusive! Joan died on 7-6-17 which is 5777 days after 9-11-2001!
7-7-17 was the day that Spider-man: Homecoming was released in theaters The day after Joan Lee began her journey HOME.
This is also strange because of the fact that on Trumps Inauguration 2016 he was 70y 7m 7d old. And he met with Putin the day after Joan lees death on 7-7-17 when Putin was entering his 777th month of life
Also note Trumps convergence with Abraham Lincoln, in addition to using Lincolns Bible to be sworn in on the inauguration day mentioned.
Trump’s first full day of life was 770 months, 777 weeks and 770 days after Lincoln was assassinated.

Trump’s first full day in office was 70 years, 777 months, 777 weeks and 777 days from the day Lincoln died. This day was on Trump’s 70th year, 7th month and 7th day of life.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTIw-djmQcY
But if you look now you will see a completely different birth-date
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Boocock_Lee
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1643074/
Here is a screenshot taken the day of Joan lees Death and one cannot ignore the blatent spiderman SYCHRONY Ad.
https://imgur.com/3ECPa1f
I took this screenshot NOT because of the date but because of the SYNCHRONY ad. But doing so gave me a record of the change happening the very next day when it was altered.

We got a little of topic bringing up Joan lee, Trump, Lincoln But it is also the finest example of a tight sync chain connecting multiple folks and also an example of Revisionist history when the dates are changes as we saw with Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick Boseman was the King of Wakanda and builder of bridges and not barriers.
Black Panther was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who debuted in the July 1966 edition of The Fantastic Four #52.
Jack Kirby was born 8-28-1917 and the day Chadwick Boseman died would have been Jack Kirby(black Panthers co-creator) 103rd birthday
Boseman played a collection of Real Historic Black figures that were firsts in their fields.
But lets go back to his first listed role.
https://www.slashfilm.com/all-my-children-fired-chadwick-boseman/
Chadwick plays Reggie in the soap opera All My Children and his role was taken over by Micheal B Jordan who would later portray his enemy in the Blockbuster hit Black Panther
The alchemy there is strong. 1 person splitting into 2 versions and they are Nemesis.
Killmonger was a Black Power “destruction of the White Colonists kind of person. “He became a subversive, with dreams of ridding Wakanda of what he termed "white colonialist" cultural influences and return it entirely to its ancient ways.”
Black Power and the Raised fist are symbols of the Black Panther Party symbology. There is a strong current in the Zietgiest right now that is pushing for the 2nd American Civil war.
Chadwicks first major feature film (42) had him play Jackie Robinson the FIRST Black man to join the MLB.
Robinson broke the baseball color line when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.[2] When the Dodgers signed Robinson, they heralded the end of racial segregation in professional baseball that had relegated black players to the Negro leagues since the 1880s
Robinson heralded in the Segregation of the MLB. On 4-15-1947
Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born on January 31, 1919, into a family of sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia. Note: CAIRO
The city was named after Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Why? Hmm.
So Boseman dieing at 42 and playing in the film 42 is not enough to warrant our attention but the icing on the cake is the effect of the CORONAVIRUS on the MLB.

The teams took the field in their No. 42 jerseys but walked off after a 42-second moment of silence.
https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/2010854
MLB BLM
The on-field celebrations, including the league-wide wearing of number 42, instead took place on Friday, August 28, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the date Robinson met with Branch Rickey to discuss joining the Dodgers as well the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.
75th and 57th anniversaries of 2 iconic events for the lives of black Americans.
https://www.espn.com/mlb/recap?gameId=401226183 There was a moment of silence before the game for Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Jackie Robinson in the movie "42." Boseman died from colon cancer Friday, the day Major League Baseball marked its annual Jackie Robinson Day.
This is all made more shocking since it was during the Dodgers game on Jackie Robinson day that the announcement of Chadwicks death was made via Twitter.

Chadwick then went on too play the role of the 'Father of Soul” James Brown, in the film Get on Up
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upeKFdDWk4I
James brown had a ritual that he would perform on stage where he got down on his knees and a cape was placed upon his shoulders to give him the strength to “Get on Up”

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/funks-founding-father-james-brown-1933-2006-69720/
Boseman starred along side Nelsan Ellis who played Bobby Byrd
In 1952 Bobby Byrd formed and sang with a gospel group called the Gospel Starlighters. During a friendly baseball match at a juvenile prison, he met a young James Brown who was serving time there on robbery charges. Byrd befriended him and arranged for Byrd's family to oversee Brown's parole.[3] This began a personal and professional association that lasted until 1973.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1734700/
Nelsan Ellis also stared in the 2008 film The Express, along with Boseman. The film being about the first African American winner of the Heisman Trophy another First on the list of Firsts.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469903/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_27
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Butler
I also took note of Nelsan Ellis playing Martin Luther KING Jr in the film “The Butler”
Which was the final film of Laura Ziskin who died of breast cancer 6-12-2011 (Da 5 bloods releases on the 13th anniversary of Laura's death to Cancer.)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Ziskin
In the late 1960s, after civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, Louis tells his family that he has joined the Black Panthers. Cecil orders Louis and his girlfriend to leave his house. Louis is arrested again. Cecil becomes aware of President Richard Nixon's plans to suppress the Black Panthers.
Remember that Boseman died on the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson day and the 57th Anniversary of MLKs I have a dream speech in the National Mall/Lincoln memorial.
The reason Nelsan Ellis stands out to me is he was connected with Joan Lees death as her death was 7-6 and his was 7-8 and they were mirrors of one another. 93/39 black/white male/female. The mirroring element is highly important. But in seeing Boseman and Ellis together in 2 films made seeing Ellis's birth-date that much more potent.
Nelsan Eliis Born 11-30-1977 Chadwick Boseman Born 11-29-1977
Only 1 day separates the birth of these two men.

We are 3 episodes into the new HBO TV show about Jim Crow era racism in a Lovecraftian horror show called Lovecraft Country which debuted on 8-16-2020 12 day before Jackie Robinson day and Bosemans Death.
The first episode opens with a Dream Sequence.
“The opening monologue we hear in the first sequence of “Sundown” is a quote from the 1950 biopic The Jackie Robinson Story, a rosy recounting of the first officially acknowledged Black baseball player to join the Major Leagues. “This is the story of a boy and his dream,” the narrator recounts as our hero, Atticus, a.k.a. Tic, literally dreams of fighting a war, first against enemies in the trenches, and then against giant UFOs and flying Cthulhus. “But more than that, it is the story of an American boy and dream that is truly American.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jackie_Robinson_Story
A Biopic where Jackie Robinson plays himself.
Note The American Dream and I have a dream, coated with some revisionist history Lovecraft lore that Lovecraft would hate as he was a racist.( he had a cat named “NI##ER)

Da 5 Bloods is Bosemans most recent release who he plays alongside/with Johnathon Majors the man who had the dream about Jackie Robinson destroying the nightmare starspawn creature in the opening scene of Lovecraft Country.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3718007/?ref_=tt_cl_t1
In LCC Majors is a Korean War vet and in Da 5 Bloods he is involved in the Vietnam War.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9777644/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_3
As he rages to himself, Paul has a vision of Norman who reminds him that he was the one who had killed him, having shot him by accident during the firefight, and that he should let go of his guilt. Desroche's men find Paul and kill him. At the temple, Desroche and the gunmen arrive. After confronting the Frenchman, now wearing Paul's MAGA hat, Otis, Melvin and Vinh start shooting, killing all of Desroche's men. Desroche wounds Otis and tries to finish him off with a hand grenade, but Melvin sacrifices himself by leaping on top of it. Desroche prepares to execute Otis, but David shoots and kills him with Otis's gun. Vinh helps the surviving Bloods share out the gold. Melvin's widow receives his share, and Eddie's goes to a Black Lives Matter organization. Hedy and Simon donate their shares to LAMB in Seppo's name. Norman's remains are brought home to his family by the military. David reads a letter from Paul, who tells him that he will always love him. Otis visits Tiên and bonds with his daughter for the first time.

Well that's a surprise. The Vietnam film flashes forward too today and has both a MAGA hat AND BLM



Kobe and Boseman.......

I made a similar post about the Life and death and synchromystic web of Kobe earlier this year and we are now seeing an interesting mirror in Bosemans death.

https://www.bet.com/celebrities/news/2020/08/30/chadwick-boseman-and-kobe-bryant-last-conversation.html
The most obvious correlation is the mirroring of the 2 mens numbers. 42 and 24 and ill point out that Kobe Bryants 42nd birthday would have taken place 4 days before Chadwick's death.
Kobe Bryant died on 1-26-20 1x2x6x2= 24 his number

Chadwick had posted the video to launch Operation 42, a scheme that donated $4.2million worth of PPE to hospital that looked after African American communities most affected by coronavirus.
The actor spoke to the camera about the cause clad in a purple baseball cap wearing the mark of the charity and a full beard.
The same purple hat(crown) he gave too Obama
Corona Virus can be looked as Corona= Crown Virus= Venom of the snake.(via the etymology.
This connects to the chakra system and highlights the “Rainbow Bridge” via the number 42

I had no idea this existed but if you look a couple lines up you will see the breakdown of CoronaVirus above as SNAKE CROWN. That is sync in action.
A mystical object with many similarities to the Serpent Crown – the "Cobra Crown" – is shown to have existed during the Hyborian Age that followed the Great Cataclysm.[4] A follower of Set called Thoth-Amon allies himself with some surviving Serpent Men and briefly wields this second Crown. Another receptacle of Set's vast power, the Cobra Crown also enables its wearer to control the minds of others. However, it appears that it was much inferior to the Serpent Crown as its abilities eventually burn out and it is apparently destroyed during the course of a conflict between Thoth-Amon and Conan the Barbarian

Let me try and do a TLDR, god forgive me.
TLDR
https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/movies/amp32871563/chadwick-boseman-age-da-5-bloods/
First the Date of birth being altered on all sources was the first red flag.
Chadwick boseman died on the would be 103rd birthday of the cocreator of Black Panther Jack Kirby on the same day as the 57th March on Washington where MLK performed his I have a Dream speech and also the day of the postponed Jackie Robinson day where Boseman Played Jackie and wore the 42.
He played alongside Nelsan Ellis in 2 films Nelsan died 7-8-17 a couple days after Joan Lee whos birthday was also altered and scrubbed off the internet to hide the truth apparent within the facts. Birth till 9-11 was 77y 7m 7 d from 9-11 till death was 5777 days ending up in the middle of Hebrew year 5777 and on dieng on the release date of spider-man homecoming.
This whole thing is about Black white and the Rainbow we are all in, but the light just has to shine at the right angle (42) for us to have 2020 vision, but most likely hindsight will be 2020 and years later all of this will make sense.

You may have seen my previous writings on such recent events and that might give you better perspective on the whole. Im not the guy saying these are the biblical endtimes, or the guy saying this is all the work of the illuminati.
Im the guy saying we don't have any clue to what consciousness and reality actually is. Im the guy that believes the universe is the great teacher. EVERYTHING humans know and every idea that has arisen has arisen out of nature. Every animal is a teacher, every process in physics is a teacher, every element of creation by man and god is a teaching tool. We are trying to learn what we are. The universe is a troll but in the way a ZEN master riddles his students with KOANS that ostensibly have no true meaning. But it is the process of play and entertaining ideas and convincing ourselves that every truth could be false and every fallacy could be true.
I don't have the answers, I just see what is there to be seen and I think about what is seen and relay my thoughts and the things I see. You may have to read through this a couple times to understand the crux of each individual link I mention but if you come at this with an open mind you may have an easier time and learn something.
R.I.P Chadwick, Kobe,Martin,Malcolm,James,Thurgood, T'challa and every other black icon in history to bring us to where we are today. We are at the start of the rainbow bridge and we can journey up through all the colors to get to the Crown, for we are all kings and queens heroes and villains on this world stage. PLAY your part!

https://www.reddit.com/coincidence/comments/6mj1m9/joan_lee_birth_911_is_77y7m7d_from_911_until_he

Joans birthday 2-5-24 until 9-11-2001 is 77years 7months and 7 days inclusive! Joan died on 7-6-17 which is 5777 days after 9-11-2001!
7-7-17 was the day that Spider-man: Homecoming was released in theaters The day after Joan Lee began her journey HOME.
This is also strange because of the fact that on Trumps Inauguration 2016 he was 70y 7m 7d old. And he met with Putin the day after Joan lees death on 7-7-17 when Putin was entering his 777th month of life
Also note Trumps convergence with Abraham Lincoln, in addition to using Lincolns Bible to be sworn in on the inauguration day mentioned.
Trump’s first full day of life was 770 months, 777 weeks and 770 days after Lincoln was assassinated.

Trump’s first full day in office was 70 years, 777 months, 777 weeks and 777 days from the day Lincoln died. This day was on Trump’s 70th year, 7th month and 7th day of life.

https://imgur.com/3ECPa1f
I took this screenshot NOT because of the date but because of the SYNCHRONY ad. But doing so gave me a record of the change happening the very next day when it was altered.

We got a little of topic bringing up Joan lee, Trump, Lincoln But it is also the finest example of a tight sync chain connecting multiple folks and also an example of Revisionist history when the dates are changes as we saw with Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick Boseman was the King of Wakanda and builder of bridges and not barriers.
Black Panther was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who debuted in the July 1966 edition of The Fantastic Four #52.
Jack Kirby was born 8-28-1917 and the day Chadwick Boseman died would have been Jack Kirby(black Panthers co-creator) 103rd birthday
Boseman played a collection of Real Historic Black figures that were firsts in their fields.
But lets go back to his first listed role.
https://www.slashfilm.com/all-my-children-fired-chadwick-boseman/
Chadwick plays Reggie in the soap opera All My Children and his role was taken over by Micheal B Jordan who would later portray his enemy in the Blockbuster hit Black Panther
The alchemy there is strong. 1 person splitting into 2 versions and they are Nemesis.
Killmonger was a Black Power “destruction of the White Colonists kind of person. “He became a subversive, with dreams of ridding Wakanda of what he termed "white colonialist" cultural influences and return it entirely to its ancient ways.”
Black Power and the Raised fist are symbols of the Black Panther Party symbology. There is a strong current in the Zietgiest right now that is pushing for the 2nd American Civil war.
Chadwicks first major feature film (42) had him play Jackie Robinson the FIRST Black man to join the MLB.
Robinson broke the baseball color line when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.[2] When the Dodgers signed Robinson, they heralded the end of racial segregation in professional baseball that had relegated black players to the Negro leagues since the 1880s
Robinson heralded in the Segregation of the MLB. On 4-15-1947
Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born on January 31, 1919, into a family of sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia. Note: CAIRO
The city was named after Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Why? Hmm.
So Boseman dieing at 42 and playing in the film 42 is not enough to warrant our attention but the icing on the cake is the effect of the CORONAVIRUS on the MLB.

The teams took the field in their No. 42 jerseys but walked off after a 42-second moment of silence.
https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/2010854
MLB BLM
The on-field celebrations, including the league-wide wearing of number 42, instead took place on Friday, August 28, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the date Robinson met with Branch Rickey to discuss joining the Dodgers as well the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.
75th and 57th anniversaries of 2 iconic events for the lives of black Americans.
https://www.espn.com/mlb/recap?gameId=401226183 There was a moment of silence before the game for Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Jackie Robinson in the movie "42." Boseman died from colon cancer Friday, the day Major League Baseball marked its annual Jackie Robinson Day.
This is all made more shocking since it was during the Dodgers game on Jackie Robinson day that the announcement of Chadwicks death was made via Twitter.

Chadwick then went on too play the role of the 'Father of Soul” James Brown, in the film Get on Up
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upeKFdDWk4I
James brown had a ritual that he would perform on stage where he got down on his knees and a cape was placed upon his shoulders to give him the strength to “Get on Up”

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/funks-founding-father-james-brown-1933-2006-69720/
Boseman starred along side Nelsan Ellis who played Bobby Byrd
In 1952 Bobby Byrd formed and sang with a gospel group called the Gospel Starlighters. During a friendly baseball match at a juvenile prison, he met a young James Brown who was serving time there on robbery charges. Byrd befriended him and arranged for Byrd's family to oversee Brown's parole.[3] This began a personal and professional association that lasted until 1973.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1734700/
Nelsan Ellis also stared in the 2008 film The Express, along with Boseman. The film being about the first African American winner of the Heisman Trophy another First on the list of Firsts.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469903/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_27
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Butler
I also took note of Nelsan Ellis playing Martin Luther KING Jr in the film “The Butler”
Which was the final film of Laura Ziskin who died of breast cancer 6-12-2011 (Da 5 bloods releases on the 13th anniversary of Laura's death to Cancer.)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Ziskin
In the late 1960s, after civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, Louis tells his family that he has joined the Black Panthers. Cecil orders Louis and his girlfriend to leave his house. Louis is arrested again. Cecil becomes aware of President Richard Nixon's plans to suppress the Black Panthers.
Remember that Boseman died on the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson day and the 57th Anniversary of MLKs I have a dream speech in the National Mall/Lincoln memorial.
The reason Nelsan Ellis stands out to me is he was connected with Joan Lees death as her death was 7-6 and his was 7-8 and they were mirrors of one another. 93/39 black/white male/female. The mirroring element is highly important. But in seeing Boseman and Ellis together in 2 films made seeing Ellis's birth-date that much more potent.
Nelsan Eliis Born 11-30-1977 Chadwick Boseman Born 11-29-1977
Only 1 day separates the birth of these two men.

We are 3 episodes into the new HBO TV show about Jim Crow era racism in a Lovecraftian horror show called Lovecraft Country which debuted on 8-16-2020 12 day before Jackie Robinson day and Bosemans Death.
The first episode opens with a Dream Sequence.
“The opening monologue we hear in the first sequence of “Sundown” is a quote from the 1950 biopic The Jackie Robinson Story, a rosy recounting of the first officially acknowledged Black baseball player to join the Major Leagues. “This is the story of a boy and his dream,” the narrator recounts as our hero, Atticus, a.k.a. Tic, literally dreams of fighting a war, first against enemies in the trenches, and then against giant UFOs and flying Cthulhus. “But more than that, it is the story of an American boy and dream that is truly American.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jackie_Robinson_Story
A Biopic where Jackie Robinson plays himself.
Note The American Dream and I have a dream, coated with some revisionist history Lovecraft lore that Lovecraft would hate as he was a racist.( he had a cat named “NI##ER)

Da 5 Bloods is Bosemans most recent release who he plays alongside/with Johnathon Majors the man who had the dream about Jackie Robinson destroying the nightmare starspawn creature in the opening scene of Lovecraft Country.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3718007/?ref_=tt_cl_t1
In LCC Majors is a Korean War vet and in Da 5 Bloods he is involved in the Vietnam War.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9777644/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_3
As he rages to himself, Paul has a vision of Norman who reminds him that he was the one who had killed him, having shot him by accident during the firefight, and that he should let go of his guilt. Desroche's men find Paul and kill him. At the temple, Desroche and the gunmen arrive. After confronting the Frenchman, now wearing Paul's MAGA hat, Otis, Melvin and Vinh start shooting, killing all of Desroche's men. Desroche wounds Otis and tries to finish him off with a hand grenade, but Melvin sacrifices himself by leaping on top of it. Desroche prepares to execute Otis, but David shoots and kills him with Otis's gun. Vinh helps the surviving Bloods share out the gold. Melvin's widow receives his share, and Eddie's goes to a Black Lives Matter organization. Hedy and Simon donate their shares to LAMB in Seppo's name. Norman's remains are brought home to his family by the military. David reads a letter from Paul, who tells him that he will always love him. Otis visits Tiên and bonds with his daughter for the first time.

Well that's a surprise. The Vietnam film flashes forward too today and has both a MAGA hat AND BLM



Kobe and Boseman.......

I made a similar post about the Life and death and synchromystic web of Kobe earlier this year and we are now seeing an interesting mirror in Bosemans death.

https://www.bet.com/celebrities/news/2020/08/30/chadwick-boseman-and-kobe-bryant-last-conversation.html
The most obvious correlation is the mirroring of the 2 mens numbers. 42 and 24 and ill point out that Kobe Bryants 42nd birthday would have taken place 4 days before Chadwick's death.
Kobe Bryant died on 1-26-20 1x2x6x2= 24 his number

Chadwick had posted the video to launch Operation 42, a scheme that donated $4.2million worth of PPE to hospital that looked after African American communities most affected by coronavirus.
The actor spoke to the camera about the cause clad in a purple baseball cap wearing the mark of the charity and a full beard.
The same purple hat(crown) he gave too Obama
Corona Virus can be looked as Corona= Crown Virus= Venom of the snake.(via the etymology.
This connects to the chakra system and highlights the “Rainbow Bridge” via the number 42

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpent_Crown
I had no idea this existed but if you look a couple lines up you will see the breakdown of CoronaVirus above as SNAKE CROWN. That is sync in action.
A mystical object with many similarities to the Serpent Crown – the "Cobra Crown" – is shown to have existed during the Hyborian Age that followed the Great Cataclysm.[4] A follower of Set called Thoth-Amon allies himself with some surviving Serpent Men and briefly wields this second Crown. Another receptacle of Set's vast power, the Cobra Crown also enables its wearer to control the minds of others. However, it appears that it was much inferior to the Serpent Crown as its abilities eventually burn out and it is apparently destroyed during the course of a conflict between Thoth-Amon and Conan the Barbarian

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy appointed Marshall to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Four years later, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed Marshall as the United States Solicitor General.
He was appointed to the court of appeals by JFK himself.
“Marshall attended Howard University School of Law, where he worked harder than he had at Lincoln. His mother had to pawn her wedding and engagement rings to pay the tuition. “
Howard university was where Chadwick and Kamala Harris Graduated from as well.

Ok folks, did I leave anything out? Well im sure by the nature of such research I left everything out. But I went with my gut and showed all the elements that resonated with me in combination with the current zietgiest (spirit of culture)
Let me try and do a TLDR, god forgive me.
TLDR
https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/movies/amp32871563/chadwick-boseman-age-da-5-bloods/
First the Date of birth being altered on all sources was the first red flag.
Chadwick boseman died on the would be 103rd birthday of the cocreator of Black Panther Jack Kirby on the same day as the 57th March on Washington where MLK performed his I have a Dream speech and also the day of the postponed Jackie Robinson day where Boseman Played Jackie and wore the 42.
He played alongside Nelsan Ellis in 2 films Nelsan died 7-8-17 a couple days after Joan Lee whos birthday was also altered and scrubbed off the internet to hide the truth apparent within the facts. Birth till 9-11 was 77y 7m 7 d from 9-11 till death was 5777 days ending up in the middle of Hebrew year 5777 and on dieng on the release date of spider-man homecoming.
This whole thing is about Black white and the Rainbow we are all in, but the light just has to shine at the right angle (42) for us to have 2020 vision, but most likely hindsight will be 2020 and years later all of this will make sense.

You may have seen my previous writings on such recent events and that might give you better perspective on the whole. Im not the guy saying these are the biblical endtimes, or the guy saying this is all the work of the illuminati.
Im the guy saying we don't have any clue to what consciousness and reality actually is. Im the guy that believes the universe is the great teacher. EVERYTHING humans know and every idea that has arisen has arisen out of nature. Every animal is a teacher, every process in physics is a teacher, every element of creation by man and god is a teaching tool. We are trying to learn what we are. The universe is a troll but in the way a ZEN master riddles his students with KOANS that ostensibly have no true meaning. But it is the process of play and entertaining ideas and convincing ourselves that every truth could be false and every fallacy could be true.
I don't have the answers, I just see what is there to be seen and I think about what is seen and relay my thoughts and the things I see. You may have to read through this a couple times to understand the crux of each individual link I mention but if you come at this with an open mind you may have an easier time and learn something.
R.I.P Chadwick, Kobe,Martin,Malcolm,James,Thurgood, T'challa and every other black icon in history to bring us to where we are today. We are at the start of the rainbow bridge and we can journey up through all the colors to get to the Crown, for we are all kings and queens heros and villains on this world stage. PLAY your part!

2019.01.03 18:47 Thomas_Pizza All-time greatest team made up of players whose name contains either an official military rank or a title of nobility.

I thought I was gonna end up with like six guys named Duke or Earl, but I managed to find 25 different ranks or titles, so no repeats.
Full 25-man roster.
MLB players are linked to their player page on baseball-reference.com, and Negro league players are linked to their player page on Seamheads.com.
Essentially all of the notes at the bottom are about King Kelly, he was amazing in all things.

League Guide

AL = American League (1901-present)
CUB = Cuban League (1878-1961)
EAS = Eastern Independent (Negro) Leagues (dates uncertain)
FL = Federal League (1914-1915)
NA = National Association (1871-1875)
NL = National League (1876-present)

Starters

Name Position Years Primary Team Grab Bag
King Kelly C 1878-1893 Chicago White Stockings [Cubs] (NL) Hall of Fame. He's one of the most interesting and hilarious players to ever play in the majors (more below).
Admiral Schlei 1B 1904-1911 Cincinnati Reds (NL) Primarily a catcher, he was a poor hitter but a good defender, worth 7.4 WAR over his career.
General Stafford 2B 1890-1899 New York Giants (NL) In 1897 he was teammates with a rookie Honus Wagner, on the Louisville Colonels (NL). Here's a team photo. The General is standing all the way on the right; Wagner is in the middle row, 2nd from right.
Putsy Caballero 3B 1944-1952 Philadelphia Phillies (NL) 'Caballero' is a Spanish title of nobility equal to 'knight.' His full, actual, name was Ralph Joseph Caballero, and here's his explanation for why he was called 'Putsy': Everybody down here in N’Awlins has a nickname. My brother Monroe is ‘Money.’ My brother Raymond is ‘Rainbow.’ There’s no special reason for any of those nicknames. There’s none for mine, either. People just always called me Putsy."
Omar Infante SS 2002-2016 Detroit Tigers (AL) 'Infante' is a title given to both sons and daughters of the king in Spanish and Portugese nobility. It essentially translates to “prince” or “princess,” although it is generally reserved for those princes and princesses who are not the heir apparent to the throne.
Count Sensenderfer LF 1871-1874 Philadelphia Athletics (NA) Probably the goofiest name in baseball history.
Duke Snider CF 1947-1964 Brooklyn Dodgers (NL) Hall of Fame. Was a member of the 1955 Dodgers who finally, finally beat the Yankees in the World Series, for Brooklyn's first and only WS Championship (the Dodgers have obviously won more, but in LA). Leading up to 1955 the Dodgers had won 5 Pennants over the previous 15 seasons, and had lost all 5 subsequent World Series...and all 5 to the Yankees.
Heliodoro Hidalgo RF 1901-1916 Almendares (CUB) Member of the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame. An 'hidalgo' is a low-level member of Spanish nobility, similar to the official British designation of 'gentleman' or 'esquire.'
Prince Fielder DH 2005-2016 Milwaukee Brewers (NL) Only 29 different players have ever hit 50 or more HR in a season. Prince Fielder did it in 2007; his father Cecil Fielder did it in 1990.

Bench

Skipper Roberts C 1913-1914 Pittsburgh Rebels (FL) “Skipper” used to be an actual rank in the British Royal Naval Reserve. According to wikipedia, when it is used today in various branches of the British and U.S. Military, “It is generally only applied to someone who has earned the speaker's respect, and only used with the permission of the commandecommanding officer in question.”
John Knight IF 1905-1913 New York Highlanders [Yankees] (AL) In Medieval England, 'knight' was a rank at or near the top of 'minor nobility.'
Major Allen IF 1919-1922 New York Lincoln Giants (EAS) Very little biographical info seems to exist on Allen. Seamheads gives his full name as Major Robert Allen Jr., although it's difficult to tell if 'Major' was his given name or if it denoted his military rank, or if nobody knows. Either way it reminds me of Major Major Major Major in 'Catch-22'.
Marquis Grissom OF 1989-2005 Montreal Expos [Nationals] (NL) A 'marquess' is a title of nobility which ranks above a count and below a duke. The French term for marquess is 'marquis.' One of the most famous of the French marquis is the Marquis de Sade (1740-1814), a sexual deviant from whose name the words 'sadist' and 'sadism' are derived. Fun fact!
Whitey Herzog OF 1956-1963 Kansas City Athletics (AL) 'Herzog' is a title of German nobility, similar in rank to an English duke (so, a very high rank). Whitey is a Hall of Fame Manager, so he is this team's Manager as well as being a bench player.

Chief Bender SP 1903-1917 Philadelphia Athletics (AL) Hall of Fame. Bender's father was of European ancestry, and his mother was Native American, hence the possibly offensive nickname “Chief.” A decent number of Native Americans played in the Majors prior to integration in 1947 - - Jim Thorpe is a very famous example - - and at least a dozen of these players were “officially” nicknamed Chief, like Bender was.
Chien-Ming Wang SP 2005-2016 New York Yankees (AL) 'Wang' is an ancient Chinese term meaning 'king,' which was also used in Korea. In China, the term was also sometimes bestowed upon the king's relatives.
Lady Baldwin SP 1884-1890 Detroit Wolverines (NL) 'Lady' is/was an official formal British title of minor nobility, equal to 'gentleman' and similar to the Spanish 'hidalgo.' Shoulder woes ended Baldwin's career early, but in 1886 he went a ridiculous 42-13 and led the National League in Wins, Shutouts, Strikeouts, FIP, and WHIP. According to Wikipedia, "Baldwin was given the nickname 'Lady' because of his 'quiet ways' and his refusal to swear or to come into contact with either tobacco or liquor."
Sarge Connally SP 1921-1934 Chicago White Sox (AL) ”Sarge” is obviously not exactly an official military rank, but the dictionary and wikipedia agree that “sarge” has only one meaning: a shortened and informal way of saying 'sergeant.' Connally would have been 19 years old in 1918 when WWI ended so it seems unlikely that, if he served, he reached the rank of sergeant. Unfortunately there is little biographical data on him and I can't find the reason he was called Sarge (his real name was George Walter Connally).
Earl Gurley SP 1922-1927 St. Louis Stars (NNL) In Gurley's first season in 1922 he was teammates on the St. Louis Stars with another rookie: 19-year-old future Hall of Famer Cool Papa Bell.
Colonel Snover RP 1919 New York Giants (NL) As far as I can tell, his given name was actually 'Colonel' -- his full name legal name was Colonel Lester Snover, but I can't find much about him.
Squire Moore RP 1923-1928 Birmingham Black Barons (NNL) In feudal England 'squire' was an actual title, later formalized as 'esquire,' a rank of minor nobility just above 'gentleman' and 'lady.'
Ensign Cottrell RP 1911-1915 New York Yankees (AL) Played 5 major league seasons, each one for a different team, and overall made just 12 major league appearances over those 5 seasons, 10 of them in relief. 'Ensign' was his given name. Also, he sounds exactly like a Star Trek character. Picard would be all, “Ensign Cottrell, plot a course to the Argos system, warp 8,” and Cottrell would be like, “Yes sir,” and that would be the only line he ever had on the show.
Kaiser Wilhelm RP 1903-1921 Brooklyn Superbas [Dodgers] (NL) 'Kaiser' is German for 'emperor.' Kaiser Wilhelm II was the last German Emperor, reigning from 1888 until the end of WWI in 1918. Wilhelm the ballplayer only played in 9 ML seasons, even though his career spanned 19 years.
Mel Queen RP 1942-1952 Pittsburgh Pirates (NL) Mel Queen's son, Mel Queen, later spent 6 years in the majors as well, pitching for the Reds and Angels.
Rex Brothers CL 2011-current Colorado Rockies (NL) 'Rex' is Latin for 'king' or 'ruler', and was the title bestowed upon Roman kings. And I'm sure everybody knows the play "Oedipus Rex," wherein the mythical King Oedipus receives a prophecy that he will eventually murder his own father and have sex with his own mother. [SPOILER ALERT] He totally kills his dad and bangs his mom. Freud had some fun with that one, but regardless of "the Oedipus Complex," it's a play written by Sophocles 2,500 years ago and is still a fascinating example of a self-fulfilling prophecy -- after Oedipus hears the prophecy he changes his actions trying to avoid his fate, but these new actions accidentally cause the prophecy to come true.
So, King Kelly. Here's his baseball card from 1887.
  • He was nicknamed “$10,000” Kelly when the Chicago White Stockings [Cubs] sold him to the Boston Beaneaters [Braves] for $10,000 in 1887. He apparently only got the “King” moniker after joining Boston, but it has become his official MLB name.
  • He's the first ever player to write an autobiography, published in 1888 right at the height of his super-stardom, and he only lived to be 36 years old (he played from age 20 to age 35). He died suddenly of pneumonia despite being a healthy 36-year-old, because it was the 19th century and antibiotics were not yet a thing.
  • There was a song about him first published in 1889 called "Slide, Kelly, Slide," and apparently it was pretty much the first ever hit pop recording, no exaggeration, first of all because it was a hit and second of all because most recordings at the time were religious or patriotic.
  • That's because he was famous for his agility and daring and inventiveness on the basepaths, to the point that he's legitimately credited with fucking inventing the hook slide...like where you slide feet first but to the side of the base and reach back and grab it with your hand. He came up with that shit! Or was the first to employ it regularly and successfully.
    They made a freaking movie called “Slide, Kelly, Slide” in 1927, almost 30 years after Kelly died, and it was also a success.
    Here's a scene from it which takes place on a baseball diamond.
    Two things to note: First, you might notice that in the title of that youtube clip it mentions two names, one of which is Harry Carey. He was apparently a long-time Hollywood actor, and should not be confused Harry Caray. Carey did not play King Kelly in the film, but played another leading role. Also that clip of Harry Caray I just linked is maybe the strangest 30 minutes of “baseball” I've ever seen.
    Second thing to note is that it's a 1927 film so that means it's silent (well, there's music). I actually love silent Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin movies from that period, but this shit bored the hell out of me and that clip is only 4 minutes long. Let me know if anything good happens at the end.
    Way more on King Kelly though.
  • He's also credited as a major early influence on one of the game's rarest, ballsiest, and now with instant replay, impossible plays: cutting the bases. That's where you blatantly cheat right in front of everybody by running a step or two inside of third base as you're trying to score from second, intentionally missing the base to save yourself a stride or two because there was no third base ump to watch you. Pretty early on they began employing multiple umpires per game, but very early on it was just one ump.
    Cutting the bases apparently came into fashion in Major League games in 1881, and Wikipedia says Kelly was the main man to do it.
    They also say he only tried it 4 times that season, although perhaps that's all they have historical data for. If nobody caught him, it wouldn't be noted, which leads to the confusion expressed in the paragraph directly below.
    They don't tell us anything else regarding those four attempts in 1881, but to express how rare of a play it is in MLB history, even King Kelly only tried it 4 other times his entire career...or at least there are only 4 other times it was noted. Here's where it gets weird - according to wikipedia, in those 4 other attempts spread over the rest of his career he fared thusly: He was called out twice, he was safe once (how do we even know it happened then?!!), and the other time, "he went back after being spotted," which makes less and less sense the more I think about it so I'm giving up on that one.
  • Kelly is also credited with helping popularize the hit and run play, and popularizing the play where catchers back up first base on a ground ball, which is now the ultra-standard.
    ...
  • King Kelly is ALSO the fuckin guy who people attribute the almost-certainly-fictional story to, where he's sitting on the bench while his team is in the field, so he's not in the game, but the batter hits a popup towards him and he announces: "Kelly now catching for Boston!" and catches the ball and it's an out.
    That's just kind of obviously made up and according to Wikipedia was first told only after he had died...but also the only account during his life of him doing anything the slightest bit like that was one time when his teammate hit a fly ball, and with 2 outfielders converging on it Kelly yelled out one of their names, which is really fucked up.
    He was famous for distracting fielders while he was on the bases too, but he's basically trying to cause a collision there.
    It's a little less quaint than cutting the bases.

Not entirely on topic:
Here's a great clip from Buster Keaton's silent movie “Seven Chances.” All of his movies have been restored over the last decade or so and look incredible.
Keaton was famous for doing dangerous stunts...that bit near the beginning where he jumps across the cliff? They sped it up to make him look silly when he's running, but that jump certainly isn't fake. The tree-fall is obviously very very fake, but the triple somersault leap down the sand dunes looks very real and almost specifically designed to break a person's neck.
And then the improvised slapstick he does with the fake rocks is great, and is a famous scene.

This brings us to Gustav Elijah Åhr or ..Lil Peep From Wiki : His parents were both Harvard graduates who divorced when he was a teenager.[6] Åhr's mother, Liza Womack[7] is a first grade teacher and his father is a college professor. He has Swedish, German and Irish descent.
I have a real hard time believing that Harvard graduate parents would let this kid do the drugs that he sang about & get such awful tatoos. Cannot find the name of his father yet. His Grandmother, Liza Womack's mother, is Jenny Kastner. Jennifer Pirie married Peter Kastner. From When Scotland was Jewish : [Finally, Tyrie graveyard had several Semitic surnames: Pirie, Lyon, Lee, Lovie, Lowe (indicative of lion/Loewe for the tribe of Judah), Shirran, Lunan (Sp. de Luna) and Chivas.] Kastner is Ashkenazi jewish last name for cabinetmakers.
Peter Kastner's IMDB page: Peter Kastner graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) with a degree in Modern European History. He studied also at UCLA for a Masters degree in that field but put those studies aside to pursue acting work. He was a lifelong learner, most recently teaching himself Yiddish in the original Hebrew script. First wife Wendy Miller. Second wife Jenny, to whom he was married 34 years. Has a stepdaughter, Liza, and two grandsons, Oskar and Gus. One of many actors who read for the lead role in The Graduate (1967) but lost out to Dustin Hoffman. His parents were involved in a printing and publishing business. He was the second of four children, including older sister Susan Kastner, and younger siblings John Kastner and Kathy Kastner. All were involved in the entertainment business in some way - Susan was a journalist at the Toronto Star, New York Post, and Agence France-Presse; John was an actor who turned prolific director and producer; Kathy was a Toronto-based host of a current-affairs show. After choosing to leave acting, Peter became a high-school English teacher. He had a breakdown in 1991 and was hospitalized for a while. Following that, he taught himself all aspects of videography and became a video teacher and mentor to many students. He created his own video art which was funny, wry, quirky and political and, at times, deeply personal, particularly on the subject of his own experience as a survivor of incest. He wrote many songs and recorded two CDs. One of his songs, "Testosterone", was set to animation by the brilliant Jonathan Amitay. It can be seen on YouTube. He played at Club Passim, in Cambridge, Massachusetts (the former Club 47 of Joan Baez fame), and at the Free Times Cafe and other venues in Toronto. A proud survivor of incest. He spoke out about it in his art and would have brought it further into the light, particularly the devastating effects of motheson incest.
Lil Peep is probably a Jewish actor. This means his death may have been faked as foreshadowed by his lyrics. On the other hand wikipedia suspiciously states "Foul play was not suspected,[42] with his death believed to be from an overdose." From his twitter: "I don't need Zionists amongst my fans. Israel is not "defending" anything they are murdering innocent children every day." & "Fuck Israel."
Perhaps certain people were angry at Peep and wanted him gone for those comments. After Lil Peep died, Post got a similar "Crybaby" face tatoo above the eyebrow: Stay Away.

2015.09.09 00:10 montypython22 [Fuller] Sam Attacks Racism!: "The Crimson Kimono" (1959), "Shock Corridor!" (1963), and "White Dog" (1982)

Introduction
Samuel Fuller never shied away from uncomfortable material. His experiences growing up as an urban Jewish boy in New York City shaped the person he would eventually become: a passionate public avenger for causes of good and unabashed exposer of society’s evils. When he started making motion pictures, he made avowed statement-films that rankled politicians, studio heads, the FBI, and rich-men-in-power alike. He wanted to expose American audiences to the nastiness that existed in their own society. And to Fuller, there was no greater enemy of man than racism and bigotry.
During his stint as a crime reporter at the New York Graphic, Fuller bore witness to myriads of Harlem race-riots, noting the oppression of the black majority at the hands of the neighborhood’s ruthless white police. One of the more life-altering experiences of Fuller’s pre-war life occurred during a hitchhiking trip across America, when he infiltrated a clandestine meeting of the Ku Klux Klan in Little Rock, Arkansas. Per his autobiography:
“Hatred was born of fear. For a real eye-opener, there was nothing that could surpass the Ku Klux Klan meetings I covered in Little Rock. My editor at American Weekly had sent me to the cradle of the Klan to write a firsthand report about their strange rituals. I got to Little Rock and was tipped off where the Klan held their secret meetings. That night I found myself surrounded by thirty KKK members wearing white sheets and parading around a burning cross. It was an overwhelming spectacle that left me depressed and disillusioned that this could even happen in America. My mother had raised me to respect people of all cultures, to honor the idea that America was great because of its melting pot of peoples. Those KKK psychopaths proselytizing about white supremacy, lynching, and violence deeply disturbed me, shaking up my youthful idealism that all Americans loved and respected real democratic values” (Fuller 73).
It was face-to-face experiences with hatred in its purest form that led Fuller to mount an informal assault against racism in his films. Most Fuller films will focus on people of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The Steel Helmet gives partial insight on the Korean War through the eyes of a young ten-year-old South Korean boy. China Gate features a black soldier (Nat King Cole) in the ultimately disastrous fight against communism in French Indochina. The Naked Kiss has a veritable melting pot of colors in its bold musical number—we see black kids, Asian kids, and white kids singing with Constance Towers, the film’s powerful female protagonist. Fuller is also very insistent about casting people who are actually the race he describes—very unusual for a Hollywood more or less comfortable with letting white, established actors play ethnic roles. (In his autobiography and in interviews, Fuller acknowledges his disdain for D.W. Griffith’s Broken Blossoms—which he calls “one of the most racist movies imaginable!”—in part due to the sugar-coated casting of Richard Barthelmess as Lillian Gish’s yellow-faced lover). From Run of the Arrow—one of the best Revisionist Westerns ever made, where Fuller hired non-professional Native Americans to play the Sioux—to The Crimson Kimono—where the lead heavy is played by the Japanese-American amateur actor James Sigeta—Fuller demonstrates his understanding of image and representation in a Hollywood that seemed historically stuck in the past.
Nowhere is this atmosphere of anti-racist passion more cogently felt than the three films of this week: The Crimson Kimono (1959); Shock Corridor! (1963); and the most daring of all—White Dog (1982). Each one of these throat-grabbing powerhouses displays not only Fuller’s unparalleled storytelling skills, but also provides crucial contemporary insights into the social, political, and racial climate of America during the Civil Rights Era. Each film is more disturbing than the last. The Crimson Kimono (1959) looks like, for all intents and purposes, a standard film noir. Two detectives, a Nisei (Shigeta) and a white man (Glenn Corbett), are investigating the killing ofan Angelino stripper named Sugar Torch (another in the long line of memorable Fuller names, alongside “Cuddles”, “Griff”, “Keys”, and “Short Round”). However, The Crimson Kimono is also daring for its sophisticated portrayal of interracial couples (8 years before Stanley Kramer’s officious and overrated Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner) and reverse racism. The two detectives both fall in love with the same woman, a young artist named Christine, who in turn falls in love….not with the white heavy, but with the Nisei. Incidentally, that Shigeta’s character identifies as “Nisei” is surely an intentional move on the part of Fuller. Eight years earlier, with The Steel Helmet (1951), he became the first American director to acknowledge the Japanese internment camps of World War II, which were set up along the West Coast in a tidal wave of reactionary xenophobia following the Pearl Harbor bombings of 1941. Issei (first-generation, Japan-born emigrants to America) and Nisei (their children) were among those unfairly condemned by the United States government, and Fuller wasn’t willing to let this crime against a specific group of people go untouched. Additionally, The Crimson Kimono goes further and examines how the reactionary attitudes of certain Americans can lead to reverse racism amongst the groups targeted. Shigeta’s character becomes paranoid that his best friend, the Corbett-played white detective, disapproves of his relationship with Christine. Even though Corbett doesn’t disapprove, this doesn’t stop Shigeta from nearly killing him in the film’s climactic sequence: a kendo match, shot with Fuller’s distinctly disturbing eye for violence—in a single take, the camera shaking as it captures each blow Shigeta delivers to the helpless Corbett. Of course, though its ending may not seem like a huge deal in 2015, in 1959 it was a step forward for the long-troubled history of representation of Hollywood. The leading lady ends up with the Japanese man, not the white man—and not because of any preference to race, but because the lady chooses the man she loves, regardless of color.
The Crimson Kimono seems tame compared to Shock Corridor! (1963), a certifiably insane expose on America’s problems done in pulpy Fuller style. Here, institutional racism is just one of America’s ill mores that Fuller attacks head-on: he also condemns McCarthyism witch hunting, nuclear testing, society’s misunderstanding of the mentally ill, electroconvulsive shock therapy (in the same year Sylvia Plath’s prose masterwork The Bell Jar was published), sexual perversion, incest, yellow journalism, war, and just about any other nasty thing Fuller can weave his bonkers yarn around. Shock Corridor! is unflinching, as we follow a greenhorn journalist Johnny B. (Peter Breck), who’s itching to win the Pulitzer Prize. Against the wishes of his stripper girlfriend Cathy (Constance Towers of The Naked Kiss fame), Johnny B. commits himself to a mental asylum to crack the case of an unsolved murder that took place at the asylum. There he meets a slew of crazy folk who, of course, are representative of all America’s dirty little secrets: war, bigotry, nuclear annihilation, imperialism, the Confederate flag, etc.
Perhaps the film’s most daring part is the Trent sequence. Here, Johnny B. meets a young black student named Trent. He was among the first Negro students to attend a fully-integrated Southern university. But the insults and hatred lobbed towards him when he entered the building broke Trent. He went mad, and now imagines himself as none other than General Nathaniel Bedford Forrest, the original Grand Wizard and founder of the Ku Klux Klan. (Forrest Gump’s similar handling of the same character is cutesy chump change compared to Fuller’s “Grab-the-Bull-by-the-Balls” approach.)The sequence may turn some people off due to its potentially heavy-handed nature, but amongst the hare-brained lunacy of such a situation, Fuller taps into an essential truth of American hatred: that all it takes is a silver-tongued orator with immense personality to turn seemingly innocuous citizens (the patients of the ward) into bloodthirsty demons. This must certainly have been an influence in Dave Chappelle's equally brilliant "Black White Supremacist" sketch, the closing sketch of The Chappelle Show's first episode, where Chappelle plays another crazed black man who thinks he's a member of the KKK. (Albeit, in the Chappelle sketch, it's played off for laughs.) Both are insightful looks at the origins of hatred.
Shock Corridor!’s strength is its unrelentingly blunt metaphor. Though it exaggerates, it does so for a purpose: in order to magnify America’s weaknesses. It reflects all of our dirty little secrets back at us. And if the past 2 years or so of current American politics has shown anything, it’s that all of the malaises present in Sam Fuller’s gutsy yarn (the hunger for war, the destruction of the world via nuclear weapons, institutional racism, the misunderstanding of the mentally ill) are still shockingly relevant today. In this manner, movies like Shock Corridor! can never become more ridiculous; only our society can.
Finally, for my money, we have Samuel Fuller’s best film, and certainly the most memorable: White Dog (1982). This film was so misunderstood by its studio, Paramount, that it actually shelved it, out of fears that people would watch the film and try to make their own white dogs (i.e., attack dogs trained to maim and/or kill black people.) Evidently, Paramount executives hadn’t done their research and seen that Fuller was one of the loudest anti-racist proponents in American filmmaking. White Dog was left to wallow in cable limbo, showing in a butchered 75-minute format for years before it finally got a (very limited) theatrical release. It wasn’t until the Criterion Collection released the film on DVD that American audiences got to see the film in its full, unbutchered form. And it packs a wallop for those unfamiliar with the work of Samuel Fuller. We’ll be discussing this in a separate thread because there’s so much going on in it, but you're welcome to add your thoughts to any of these movies here!

Note: I had not yet seen Black Orpheus at the time we programmed it. This introduction is far more argumentative than most and unfortunately, pretty negative as well. If you feel that I'm stupid/harsh/just-plain-wrong, don't be shy about taking me to task. This is meant to start a discussion about the film, not be a final, authoritative word about it. I've always felt that frank, respectful engagement was far more interesting than polite demurrals when it comes to talking movies.
I was having a hard time working up something to say about Black Orpheus until I stumbled across this passage from President Obama’s autobiography, Dreams From My Father, that recalls his going to see the film with his mother:
We took a cab to the revival theatre where the movie was playing. The film, a groundbreaker of sorts due to its mostly black, Brazilian cast, had been made in the fifties. The storyline was simple: the myth of the ill-fated lovers Orpheus and Eurydice set in the favelas of Rio during carnival, in Technicolor splendour, set against scenic green hills, the black and brown Brazilians sang and danced and strummed guitars like carefree birds in colourful plumage. About halfway through the movie I decided I'd seen enough, and turned to my mother to see if she might be ready to go. But her face, lit by the blue glow of the screen, was set in a wistful gaze. At that moment I felt as if I were being given a window into her heart, the unreflective heart of her youth. I suddenly realised that the depiction of the childlike blacks I was now seeing on the screen, the reverse image of Conrad's dark savages, was what my mother had carried with her to Hawaii all those years before, a reflection of the simple fantasies that had been forbidden to a white, middle-class girl from Kansas, the promise of another life: warm, sensual, exotic, different.
Thanks, Obama!
With the exception of discovering a window into the mind of my dear Kansan mother, I had pretty much the same reaction to the film. Black Orpheus took the art-house circuit by storm, winning huge popular and critical success - not to mention award after award (including Cannes’ Golden Palm and the Oscar for Best Foreign Feature). Yet, from a distance of 55 long years, it seems like so much inconsequential palaver. This was the film that bested The 400 Blows?
Black Orpheus was created with the then novel conception of transforming a classical tragedy into a modern-day musical with an all-black cast. At least, it may have seemed novel to people who didn’t remember Otto Preminger’s Carmen Jones, which did almost exactly the same thing, from five years before. "But how can you compare the two?", the art house denizen might be prompted to ask, "Preminger’s is a Hollywood film. full of glossy movie stars, phony Hollywood sets, and a frivolously eurocentric Bizet score! Camus’s film was shot on location in Rio de Janeiro, used local Brazillian actors, and music authentic to the culture!"
To that I respond, “What could further illustrate the magnitude of Camus’s failure?”
First. Of what benefit are indigenous actors, if the characters you create are empty types? Despite the sheen of Preminger's cast, his characters are shaded with subtle psychological acuity.
Second. Of what benefit is culturally authentic music if it is so incidental to the story? Bizet's opera might seem a forced fit to the locales of the American south, but it emanates from the souls of the characters - and the performers are so good that we believe it. By contrast, the samba and boss nova of Black Orpheus seems an affect of the endless party in the streets, and when Orpheus and Eurydice leave the party, the music usually leaves them.
Third. Who is the greater artist? The man who can create palpable atmosphere out of the artifice of a Hollywood set, or the man who turns the streets of Rio de Janeiro into a travel brochure? From Jean-Luc Godard's original review of Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus):
And I am astonished, very disappointed even, to see nothing of Rio in Orfeu Negro. I did not see the marvelous little airport of Santos-Dumont, where Eurydice should have landed between the sea and the skyscrapers. And why did he not make Orpheus…a conductor on a Lotacao instead of on a tram such as we have already seen in all those Pete Smith comedies from Metro? There is something poetic about these little buses like station-wagons which plunge breathlessly from the Maracana Stadium to the Copacabana beach. Poetic, too, the way Orpheus would have held his notes for giving change: folded length-wise between the fingers of each hand.
But Marcel Camus, after having been such a compliant assistant for fifteen years, has lost the feeling for poetry. Unlike Cukor, he is unable to disguise his girls as Louis XV marquises. Strolling down the Avendia Vargas, he does not hear the samba music coming from the portable radios in every shop. As Eurydice arrives by train, he should have capitalized on it to film one of those fantastic derailments which are the specialty of the Brazilian railway company.
What Godard is rather humorously suggesting is that the film is missing the details, details, details that transform a backdrop into a setting, types into characters, allegory into art. In the most human of all cities, Camus somehow misses the humanity - being too distracted by stuffy Greek symbolism.
For a conclusion, I will again turn to Godard's review:
To cut a long story short, what offends me about this adventurer's film is that it contains no adventure, or this poet's film, that it contains no poetry.

Questions Answers
Who was your inspiration for RC? When you did Team America, did they tell you what kind of voice they wanted for I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. or did you just choose the one you thought would be funniest? (You choose correctly). Besides you, who is the greatest radio show host of all time? That's a really good question. The voice came to me in 1987 actually, as part of a character inspiration I had that had to do with a really young, really dumb, yet really arrogant kid-- the kind of kid that I grew up around. The kind of kid who sounded like they were four years old, but thought they were the shit and had answers for everybody. The first name that RC ever had was "Cleve", and then in Miami years later, I was fooling around with a Rocky the Squirrel voice and I decided to marry the Cleve attitude with the Rocky the Squirrel voice.
Hi, Phil. How did you learn to do all those awesome characters and maintain a back-and-forth between the character on the phone and yourself as the host? It's g. d. hilarious. It's instinctive. It's nothing you can really learn. I listen to people throughout my life and I learn to mimic them, and I've always been fascinated with the ebb and flow of human dialogue. I listen very carefully, and I want to marry the world of real speech with humor. That is to say, make the humor sound as naturally occurring as possible.
What ultimately lead to you leaving KFI and concentrating more on TRN? Was it a money choice? Regarding KFI: My contract was up at ClearChannel, and I had decided to focus on acting at the time. When I listened to what was on the radio over the next year, I realized that there was still a great opportunity on late nights, in my opinion at that time, to exploit a whole new audience in news talk. So I took the opportunity to contact TRN, since my manager was tight with them at the time, and proposed a late night talk show.
Several years ago you did a segment called "The Death of Dylan", where Bobbie Dooley basically just mourned the death of her son for an hour. I've always wondered...what was the origin of this segment? Did you know going in that it would remain entirely dramatic? Was it a prank on the audience, who were waiting for the joke to come? Yes, I knew it would remain dramatic. It was completely out of character for the show, but at that time I think I was looking for something different to do on the radio show. I was trying to shake it out of a doldrums I had felt it had fallen into, and so I took it the only way I could take it, which was dramatic, and that was the result.
Hiya Phil. Have you been doing much live work these days — stand ups etc.? If so, how about bringing it down to your desperate fans in South Florida? Please! Yes, I'd love to bring it to South Florida. I'm scheduled to do my second one-man show in early June in Los Angeles. As that goes, so goes the rest of the country... but Miami is definitely on the schedule.
Who is the most annoying actor you've ever worked with? as an actor, where do you get your health insurance from? who is the most beautiful woman you've ever worked with? what's your favorite show on television right now? what's the best movie you've seen lately? Most annoying actor? I worked with an actor who was the star of the show I was on, and he continually showed up morning after morning without knowing his lines. And this is hearsay, but apparently he mistreated one of the other actors. It was frustrating, because the rest of the cast was very hardworking.
I have a couple questions for you. First off, do you have any idea in your head of how RC Collins would be as an adult? I really loved his transformation from goth to military academy student, and I’d really be interested to know how he turns out as a 25-30 year old. RC would probably be working in his father's business, autocratic, successful.
Also, after I heard how people got the hell out of the way when they saw Ted Bell coming (due to his personalized license plate) I got his name on my license plate (please dont sue me). I have had no success. Now, as a woman the only person who may mistake me for Mr. Bell would be Frank Gray. Do you think my lack of success is more due to that or because I just drive a lowly chevy sonic. Would it work better if I drove something European? I think it's pretty strange that as a woman you got a license plate that says "Ted Bell". I'm still getting over that one.
Lastly, what do you order at waffle house? I've never been to a Waffle House in my life, even when I lived in the South for some six years.
Did listener feedback from your BSPs have anything to do with your decision to not bring back Nikki McKee? I thought her presence was a great addition to the show, maybe even just once a week or so, however it seemed like your BSPs didn't feel the same way. Having turned down George Carlin for a guest role in the past, what made you try out Ms. McKee? Not at all. That was entirely organic to our show, in consult with people who work with me. In fairness to Nikki, I have to say that some pretty big names have from time to time wanted to perform on the show with me; people that I really love and admire. And I've had to say "no" to them too. It appears that this radio show is best done as a solo act all the way.
Hi Phil! Been listening to your show on terrestrial for a couple of years and followed you to the podcast. Love the new format. Wanted to know if there are anymore plans for the One Man Show? Maybe for us in here Seattle? Cause we always get ignored. ;) Yeah, the same answer about this as before. The one-man show is starting up this summer, and Seattle will be on the itinerary. I love Seattle; even though I hate the Seahawks (except for Richard Sherman).
Phil, a looong time ago, you had a bit where an old lady was trying to get on the show, and she didn't hang up her phone, and you listened to the whole conversation that was going on in the background. They were watching all these funny shows like Kids Say the Darndest Things and Billy Graham. Was that real??? I always wondered if that caller ever found out she was on your show for a half hour and didn't even realize it? I think I remember that call, and yes it was very real. It spawned quite a number of bits we did later on, of people not being able to hang up phones. It's very interesting in the time since that bit we have almost completely abandoned the cradle-style phone, that is the phone that's "hard to hang up". A cell phone is not hard to hang up.
What is your favorite cartoon? (yours don't count) Of the old school stuff, Warner Brother's Looney Tunes, by far. Of the new school stuff, probably King of the Hill.
Hi Phil, What's your opinion of the radio industry in the US? Do you think it's here to stay for a while? Or do you see a downhill trend? HUGE fan of your show. Used to listen as often as I could back in the days of KFI. I think radio is going to morph further and further away from the AM/FM delivery platform and trend closer and closer to a web-based delivery, because when you say radio you're simply talking about a delivery system. You're talking about a delivery platform. And I don't know that the delivery platform is as important as the content. As it is right now, radio content is dogshit, and web content is winning. That seems to be where the real creativity is.
What is the best advice ever given to you? The best advice I've ever received was to be authentic. Authentic is a better word than real. So I have to be the authentic Phil Hendrie, just as we all have to be the authentic version of whoever we are.
What do you think of Bill Handel? I think Bill's success is in the rather self-effacing manner that he presents himself. He lets us in on the fact that he really doesn't believe he knows everything, and that some mornings he's just sort of lost. And that's endearing. It's a good success story.
Did you ever call into Art Bell or George Noory to prank them? You imitating Art Bell and Ross Mitchel was hilarious. And no, I don't call to crank anyone's show.
Hey Phil, Is Justin Roiland insane and scary as his IMDB photo? And also has it been a ton of fun to work on the show Rick and Morty? Link to ia.media-imdb.com. No, Justin's a hard-workin son of a bitch. Constantly working, as a matter of fact. A really good professional friend. He's been a great resource for us as we develop our animation idea. You know, Justin's the guy who really got that project moving.
Is "radio host Phil Hendrie" another character you do, or is your radio personality a pretty true representation of yourself? "Radio host Phil Hendrie" is a radio character, and by that I mean, he's real... but he's on the radio. So let's put it this way. The person you present to your grandmother is real, but it's your grandmother's self. And the same can be said in any situation we're in. Hence it is in radio.
Hi, Phil. I'm a long time fan who used to listen to you back when you were on WIOD. I really miss those day now because radio sucks down here. I know he was a cranky bastard sometimes but do you have any good memories of Neil Rogers? Any funny off mic moments? Every memory I have of Neil is a good memory. Listening to him on the radio was never anything other than a lot of fun. He was my mentor, he was a great artist, the radio industry still doesn't understand how brilliant he was, he buried people like Rush Limbaugh in the ratings year after year... Norm Kent said of Neil, "he had an inherent understanding that people are not motivated by a higher calling, but by when the cable guy is gonna show up to fix their fucking TV." That's why Neil was great.
Phil, you are a personal hero of mine. Thanks for doing what you do. What do you think it is about people that makes them call in and argue with these ridiculous characters? Well, when they used to call in and argue, it was because they had very strong feelings about the topic that we were discussing. I think anybody who is motivated emotionally by any particular issue is vulnerable to doing something like that. I think we may forget ourselves sometimes. You know, I listen to my show and I know that it's me doing the voices of these different characters, but as I hear them, they're very real. They are different people. And I'm lost in the theater of it.
How did you come to participate on Rick and Morty? Is there anything special on the process of dubbing this series? I was called by the producers of the show and they wanted me to come in and read for a couple of characters. They were producing the pilot back in the summer of 2011, if I'm not mistaken. And so I was happy to go in and read for them.
If you're talking about anything special in voicing characters for this series, then no. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Do you ever "miss" your characters when you're not performing? How can you miss them when they're always with you? One way or another, they haunt me, waking and sleeping.
Phil, I have loved your show for years...pure genius. I have also listened to your new podcast shows and was wondering if you are never taking calls from unsuspecting listeners again? Seems impossible with the new format. It's impossible with any format, because the angst that drove talk radio callers in the past has been re-directed into social media. Facebook, Twitter, et all now provide the outlet for that passion. And you don't have to go through some smart ass talk host to say what you want to say.
Pre-9/11, pretty much every hour of the show was character-driven. Afterwards, you started doing an hour or so every show as yourself, talking about current events. How do you feel this changed the course of the show/the makeup of your audience? Were you headed in this direction, anyway? I think it hurt the show, ultimately, doing serious talk about those events. I think it split the audience down the middle and confused them. We all have opinions about things that happen in the world, and some of those opinions you just keep to yourself or express them to friends and family. When you're a guy that engages in comedic entertainment like me, you don't bring that shit to the show. And I think that really hurt our show... BUT there were far more things that hurt it much worse, and that is the radio industry itself totally unprepared to support a show like mine.
Hey Phil, I wanted to thank you for several golden years of my youth spent thinking you were actually arguing with the craziest people. Learning the truth only made it better. I love your work, and you are an inspiration to me. Thank you. I guess if I could ask anything, what is the craziest reaction youve gotten from someone while on the radio? Probably the Greenskeeper bit from over a decade ago. A man who works at Cheviot Hills golf course, here in the LA area. He almost had a stroke. You can find that clip on the "Best of 2000" CD.
Phil. Your pizza hut call as well as the old lady you had pressing #'s (both wrong # calls) were on a level above any other prank phone call recordings I've ever heard. I know that's not part of your show's regular content but have you ever considered doing more stuff with phones as far as placing calls in character? Your calls would be legendary. In order to do that I have to first get the permission of the person that I'm calling, before I even roll tape. In the state of CA if you do not do that, you are guilty of a felony. So the idea of an unsuspecting caller who's being cranked, that is they're being called instead of calling me, is legally impossible.
Hey Phil, always been a big fan. To me the Greenskeeper is radio at its absolute finest. My question is, considering a huge part of your show was to get unsuspecting callers riled up, how important did you feel time slot played into your show? Does it feel like with your show in particular, time slot was more important than other radio shows? I think our time slot ultimately really hurt our show in commercial radio. I think we should have been in an earlier day slot. But that's not the real point. The real point was that my show is talk show in name only; it doesn't fit on the same radio station with news talk shows like Beck or Hannity or Hartmann. It never has. It is a comedy show, and belongs with lots of other comedy shows, or in a morning drive slot. But I don't think even my show would have worked in morning drive on commercial radio.
Phil, has anyone ever sent you recordings of their attempts at doing your show? Are there any promising successors to your throne of character-based radio genius? I don't know of any. I think anybody that is interested in bringing entertainment back to radio, no matter what the format, they've got my vote. They've got my support. It's not about copying one artist or another; it goes back to that word I used earlier: authentic. If you are a comic artist and you want to use radio as the medium, then you've got my support a million percent. Because radio's in big trouble.
Phil, if you could share a jar of Yucca with any three people throughout the history of time (living or dead, obviously), who would you dig up and where would you hold this gathering? Abraham Lincoln, Leo Tolstoy, and Jack Kerouac. It would be at Bob Hope's old, mountain home above 111 in Palm Springs. And we wouldn't start drinking until 1 AM.
My question: how did 9/11 affect your show? It obviously changed radio for a while, but what about your show specifically? Follow up: do you have any topics you won't cover because you don't want to offend anyone? No topics are off limits.
One more question, it seems like sometimes in the past, a character has said something that has genuinely surprised you. I know that the characters are also you and that you have an uncanny ability to create realistic conversations, but sometimes your reactions to the things you say as the characters seems to be genuine. Do you find that in some cases, the characters "become real" in a way, and seem to flow from you without much thought? Do we surprise ourselves sometimes? The answer is yes. So, it's probably not unusual for me to ad lib or improvise something and have it surprise me a bit. But part of being an actor is creating a reality. And so I feel that, at least in your case, I have created that reality. And I'm proud of that.
Hey Phil, care to give any hints about the one man show? Will it feature your cast of characters? Stories from your radio career? Or something completely new? It's the characters. It's me interacting with the characters, but obviously in a live setting. I want to bring to the stage as much of what I've developed on the radio show as possible, so it's not just me in character, it's me AND other characters.
Was the line "All you can eat negro" off the cuff? It was an off the cuff line that was written on a white board by my engineetech at the time, Mike Crozier.
Do you still hate 'Three Dog Night'? I don't know that I ever really hated them. I just that they were kinda bubble-gummy. Lately though, I've re-listened to songs like "Shambala" and "Family of Man" and like 'em.
Phil. I love eating at "Tommy Burger" in California. Do you enjoy eating at Tommy Burger? Don't eat there. Can't tell you about it.
In N Out and Tops Charbroiled are the best burger stands in CA in my opinion.
Phil, I started listening to your show on accident in the early 2000's on the Premier Radio network satellite feed when I set my receiver to the wrong channel. So i'm pretty much "Long time listener first time caller" here. I've laughed to the point of tears on several occasions every since. Not that it would make any difference, but I've always wondered--does this guy smoke pot? Recently I've smoked some medical weed for sleep issues that I have, but I don't use it recreationally.
What did you have for lunch today, Phil? I had six Morning Star Veggie hot dogs (50 cals each for a total of 300 calories).
Hi Phil, great show as always. A couple years ago, Howard Stern spoke highly of you and mentioned he even visited once to watch you do the show. I'm a huge Stern fan as well, but have always been bothered by his show ripping off a few of your bits in the mid-2000's. (One I remember specifically: Stern spending close to an hour talking to guy who claims he was digging up his father's yard and found a skull... exactly like you had Lloyd Bonnifide do). Did you ever mention to Stern his writers were ripping you off? I've never known Howard to rip off any of my bits. You're talking about a guy who has created the modern sensibility in radio, the unrestricted, uncensored sensibility. If anybody's been ripped off over the years, it's Howard.
Phil, I absolutely love the show, you keep me in stitches the whole time. When I first started listening (2011) you were on radio and I didn't know the premise of the show. How many complaints do/did you get for your satirical approach? Keep up the great work! I really at this point can't tell you how many complaints we get from listeners. It's not significant enough to warrant notice. I think most people recognize it for what it is: a satire.
Phil! For some reason, I didn't like when the General was added to the panel, but he quickly became one of my favorite characters. I've always wondered, who would be your favorite(s) of your characters? Well, I have been asked that question before, and I usually answer it the following way because it actually applies: when you ask a parent who their favorite child is, it's an impossible question to answer. They can certainly tell you what they like about each child, or what may irritate them from time to time about each child, but there's no way you can single out any one as your favorite.
How brutal was RC Collins or Colleen Kristen Brewster to your voice? Once you get that voice warmed up you can perform it for a long stretch. The brutality isn't in performing the voice; the brutality is in making sure that those two personalities are distinct enough that it comes out in the voice. It being just an audio medium, and not visual, you rely on your voice for a couple of extra levels of performance. You have to make Colleen Kristen Brewster come alive as not just dumb, but a dumb female. And RC Collins has to maintain his personality as the arrogant, young male. Even though both of those voices are very similar in the timbre and range, they have to be distinct personalities. That's the hard part.
Have Americans become too dependent on government? Not at all. The question is: our society, being a freely interacting society, how can it avoid closer interaction with government? The government is a resource. It belongs to you and I the same way a public library does. Use it. Make it work for you. Don't fear it like it's some evil spirit or boogie man hiding under the bed. It's the most childish thing in the world to see the government as an evil entity out of Game of Thrones.
Do you ever get recognized by strangers in public? If so, how do you feel about it? Is it annoying or endearing? I do. And I'm completely cool with it. People are always really nice. I like it.
When you create your characters, do you have a visual idea of what they might look like? or does that happen more organically as they mature? It happens more as they mature. The attitude is the first thing that comes into relief, if you will. And that begins to fill out the physical look of the person. And then what they do for a living. And then gradually, that person's relationships come into focus. Are they married? Are they single? How many friends? Etc. And then comes where they live. But this is all part of an actor's process. You have to know more about a character than you're going to ever tell the audience.
Hey Phil, I really really really really love your show. How do you feel the callers have changed in the 20+ years you've been doing the show? Callers are far more savvy to what they call "shock jocks"; they're far more aware of the fact that there is a high degree of entertaining going on, and not so much social consciousness and evaluation of issues. So they're a lot more on guard to that reality.
Hello... Do you think there is a spiritual side to humans? or is it all behavior? There is a non-behavorial physical side to humans, and it is instinct and belief. The amount of time and energy you put into instinct and belief can create something perceived as spiritual. What it is, in point of fact, is a reality that we create. For instance, if you believe that something will happen, it will happen, depending upon the energy that you put into your instinct and belief.
Hey Phil, first off, you are literally the funniest man in the world. Literally. Personal question: Is there more money in AM radio than podcasts (or vice versa?) There's far more money in digital these days than there is in radio. And that's why we're doing a digital based show. In fact, there's been far more money in digital in the last seven years than there's been in radio. At least for us.
How many of the colorful phrases you use on the show (e.g. "got them by the short and curlies") did you pick up from your time working construction? There's a number of phrases that I've picked up from construction. I don't know if "short and curlies" is one of them, but... We used to say when I was finishing cement, "you gotta grab that trowel like you're beatin' your meat."
Thanks for all the laughs Phil! To this day I still think of some of the calls your characters put in (dating back to the 90's) and they still make me chuckle. How difficult is it not to laugh while performing? It's not difficult, because you're in character, and while what that character says may be funny to a lot of people, it's not funny to the character himself. He is deadly serious about what he thinks, etc.
Is it mainly you who comes up with the characters/bits/storylines/etc? Obviously you do all the voice work and I'm guessing most of it is ad-libbed, but do you work with anyone else to come up with the crazy scenarios your characters are always in day after day? I used to work with others, but I found that having a writer was a real handicap for me. It could very well be that I'm just a massive control freak, but I don't like to collaborate with people on this show. I tried it and it was always very frustrating for me.
Do you have any fond memories of your time in Atlanta other than the flight out? Haha. I have very many fond memories of my time in Atlanta, and it has to do with the women of that fine city, whose names I will not reveal at this time.
Do you/have you ever used sound clips of the characters in order to have vocal overlap? (I think the way you use things like the rustling paper or just having the characters interject very quickly works really well in keeping the illusion going.) Never. We don't pre-produce anything for our show really, other than basic production elements like sound effects.
Hey Phil, thanks for doing another one of these. I was wondering if you were ever tempted to actually feature Walter Bellhaven and provide a voice for him in a bit. If so, how do you imagine he would sound? And I'll hang up and listen, thank you. Never. Walter's effective as one of those behind-the-scenes characters. He's far more effective that way, I think.
I'm not sure of the year ( I think it was around the same time you had the Art Bell skit where General Jameson gets killed trying to enter Area 51), but one Halloween you told the story of Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole. It was a huge departure from the usual tone of your show, as it was very unsettling due to the amount of detail you gave in your telling of the story, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Was there any fallout from that episode other than the usual idiots thinking they were listening to the wrong show? No. I think people actually enjoyed it... at least, as I remember.
Is there a time where you were able to get a caller to completely lose their shit more than usual? See my other answer somewhere about the poor Greenskeeper.
How many times do you sneeze in a week? No more than three. Depending upon what I eat...
Phil, this is sorta show related. You used to do all those Sopranos updates with RC Collins on your show. And they were soo funny by the way. Just wondering what you thought about the Sopranos ending? I thought it was a great time to end it. I'm very much a fan of ending shows when they should be ended and beginning something new. Sopranos was a transcendent television show. It was phenomenal acting and writing, and something like that has to come to an end at some point.
Who are your favorite sporting teams? Football, Basketball, Soccer. Basketball: The Lakers.
Football: 49ers. And that's heresy coming from a longtime Ram fan, but I'm not a St. Louis Ram fan, so whatever.
Soccer: Everton from the Premiere league.
Hockey: LA Kings.
Baseball: The Dodgers.
One of the funniest episodes I remember hearing was the remote broadcast from the auto parts store on Fifth and Flower, where you were on the verge of a nervous breakdown due to the owner's insistence on you reading his ad copy a certain way, and we could hear you when you "went to a commercial". I remember it ended with a costumer assaulting you on-air and Dickman standing around not helping. Any plans to do a "remote broadcast" with the new panel of Gen. Shaw, Margaret, Bud, and Robert? Any "remote broadcasts" nowadays will be a version of my one-man show. That is the next step that I want to take in performing, and that's getting up on the stage in a theatrical setting and performing these characters.
Hey Phil, thanks for the time - you've always put out an entertaining show, but is there a particular segment that you're proud of as one that perfectly captured what your show is all about? I think truly the show that I'm doing now is as close to the perfect Phil Hendrie show as any I've ever done. Narrowing it down to a segment would be difficult, if not impossible.
Do you wipe your butt with your left or right hand? Right-hand. Always right-hand. I think we wipe with the dominant hand. If you're right-handed but you wipe with your left hand, you have some serious fucking issues.
Phil, have you ever been asked to do a voice on The Simpsons? I have never been asked to do a voice on The Simpsons, but I would be proud as punch to be a part of that great show. We'll see what happens over the coming epoch.
I remember a bit from a while back where Art Griego was discussing taking accident photos of airplanes. My favorite line was Art saying that Abraham Zapruder was his "patron saint." At the end, Taylor gave you line that was apparently so inappropriate you had to get out of the bit. What was the line? I don't recall that at all. I don't even know if Taylor was the engineer at the time. Could have been Mark Newman or Mike Crozier.
What kind of underwear to you wear, since you brought it up? Boxers.
One more question - do you have a favorite / least favorite character to have on the show? I don't really have a least favorite.
Quick question, what's your favorite James Bond movie? The Daniel Craig "Casino Royale".
I know you had Larry King on once and fooled. Yeah, I got Larry King pretty good once. I can't think of any others off the top of my head.
Hi Phil. First of all, I love your show. Your are so talented. You mentioned Mrs. Olson's on your show. I'd like to visit California and check it out. What is the best thing to get for breakfast The tri-tip omelet with a side of their potatoes and corn tortillas. And a big glass of OJ.

2014.02.24 00:30 kingofthejungle223 [Theme: John Ford] #8. The Sun Shines Bright (1953)

Introduction

Well, maybe there's one [film] that I love to look at again and again. That's The Sun Shines Bright, a Judge Priest story by Irvin S. Cobb, who was a pretty damn good writer. I had Charles Winninger in that one and he was excellent. That's really my favorite. - John Ford
For years, John Ford had been wanting to revisit the folksy characters of humorist Irvin S. Cobb. He'd first adapted Cobb's tales of the easy going, sly Judge Priest in 1933 (with humorist Will Rogers in the title role) but was never completely satisfied with the result. Fox had forced him to remove a scene of Priest saving his faithful negro sidekick, Jeff Poindexter (played by character actor Stepin’ Fetchit), from a lynching. Fox executives deemed the scene too controversial, fearing it would hurt the film's box-office potential in the south. So the segment was unceremoniously cut, and the film lost it’s sense of righteous outrage in the process. Ford now felt that he was in a position to make the film he’d wanted to all of those years earlier. After the remarkable success of Rio Grande and The Quiet Man, Republic’s Herb Yates was hardly in a position to object.
The director began to seriously consider revisiting Judge Priest around the time he made My Darling Clementine. He’d received a letter from Stepin' Fetchit, a once-famous black character actor who’d become virtually unemployable during the 1940’s. Hollywood's first black millionaire, Fetchit' (the stage name of Lincoln Perry) had risen to celebrity playing "comic darky" roles - lazy, shuffling, nearly unintelligible characters. With the country’s changing political winds, what was once considered funny now seemed hurtful, and Fetchit became an easy political target for a generation of civil rights advocates. Revisionist critics have since argued that Fetchit’s persona takes racial stereotypes to the breaking point, transforming them into wry critiques of white establishment values, but it’s easy to understand their political toxicity in the furor of the times. Political pressure applied to the studios effectively blacklisted the actor, and cinema’s first black star would end his days broke and forgotten - like so many Fordian characters, a man who has outlived his times. As film critic Andrew Sarris explained, for some it was "better that Fetchit be permanently unemployed than that he serve as a reminder of a shameful blind spot on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. But for Ford, Mr. Fetchit was an old friend and a familiar face, and he had to make a living like everyone else".
After Darryl Zanuck shot down Ford’s suggestion of remaking Judge Priest, Ford tried to write a part for Fetchit into My Darling Clementine - an idea the producer also nixed. Stepin' Fetchit would not be cast at Fox. Ford also briefly considered inserting what would become The Sun Shines Bright’s famous funeral scene into Clementine - making it the funeral for dance hall girl Chihuahua - before screenwriter Winston Miller persuaded him that such a scene would be at odds with Chihuahua’s character.
Recognizing the position his previous two hits had put him in, Ford jumped at the chance to make the film he’d been devising for the last seven years. When production began in August 1952, The Sun Shines Bright was allotted a scant 30 day shooting schedule, but the director finished with two days to spare. "A true director’s work is done before the picture's started,” Ford told a visiting New York Times reporter, “You get all the elements beforehand. You study the sets for photographic value; you get the best camera man you can; you get the best location. And I always work closely with the writer preparing the screen story. We always sit and talk it over and write it together... My own personal view is that short stories, like these, make the best picture, better than a long novel which you have to cut down in length. With the short story, you develop the storyline better."
The Sun Shines Bright is the purest expression of John Ford’s cinema. Andrew Sarris described it as “100-proof Ford,” adding that “every shot, every frame is a testament to a lifetime of film-making and feeling.” It dwells on all of the directors favorite themes - the scourge of intolerance, the questionable virtue of progress, relics of lost causes and passing generations, and the many rituals of community.
The film has suffered the misfortune of being misunderstood since it’s release, with the initial reviews being almost universally negative. Variety called it “a lightweight comedy-drama, poorly plotted and overlong at 90 minutes”. The New York Times dubbed it a “laborious, pedantic and saccharine entertainment package”, adding that “after parading a handful of Negroes to and fro in quaking servility, the picture foists an inexcusably synthetic sequence about a near-lynching. For this ambivalent piety someone - never mind who - should be deposited head first in a mud-bank.” As Joseph McBride notes, “the film’s detractors seem baffled by Ford’s ability to empathize with people on both sides of the racial divide and by his willingness to show Christian charity even to racists, to ‘hate the sin but love the sinner’”.
Even the film’s many defenders have often seemed at a loss to account for the film’s depiction of Fairfield, Kentucky’s black community, with most suggesting that Ford was simply out of touch with the times, casting actors like Stepin Fetchit and Clarence Muse out of a sentimentality for the old days. I’ll humbly suggest that there’s something deeper at play.
After battling Zanuck (and losing) for so long over Stepin’ Fetchit’s casting, he was almost certainly aware of the anachronistic nature of The Sun Shines Bright’s characters. In fact, that’s kind of the point. Ford wants to begin his film with stereotypes - both black and white - that embarrass our modern sensibilities. Fetchit’s Poindexter is at his most lazy and shambling in the film’s opening scenes, and Winninger’s Billy Priest is at his most pompous and insufferable (the first thing we hear him call Jeff is “that good for nothing boy”). So we begin the film, like General Fairfield, Horace K. Maydew, the mob from the tornado district, and the women who scorn Mallie Cramp, casting pious judgements on the characters before us. They represent a way of life that we find distasteful, even immoral. As the film proceeds Ford, like Priest, makes us less and less comfortable with our easy judgements, until we hopefully emerge with a degree of understanding.
As we witness Jeff Poindexter hastily making young Woodford play ‘Dixie’ rather than ‘Marching Through Georgia’ (a song about the Union Army burning down the southern city of Atlanta) on his Banjo, we realize that he too is a ‘doddering relic of a lost cause’, a part of a black community liberated by the war but not yet freed from the systems of oppression it destroyed. The old coots in the confederate veterans hall are the only friends he has, and he’s simply trying his best to survive.
All of us, Ford argues, are imperfect people marked by a past we cannot change or escape. And the future is always built on a past as imperfect as the people who lived it. Thus tolerance, understanding and forgiveness - coming to terms with the both living and the dead - are the only things that might make tomorrow more virtuous than yesterday.

Feature Presentation

The Sun Shines Bright, d. by John Ford, written by Laurence Stallings, Irvin S. Cobb
Charles Winninger, Stepin’ Fetchit, Arleen Whelan, John Russell, Russell Simpson, Clarence Muse, Jane Darwell, Francis Ford, Slim Pickens, Elzie Emanuel, Eve March
1953, IMDb
John Ford weaves three "Judge Priest" stories together to form a good- natured exploration of honour and small-town politics in the South around the turn of the century. Judge William Priest is involved variously in revealing the real identity of Lucy Lake, reliving his Civil War memories, preventing the lynching of a youth and contesting the elections with Yankee Horace K. Maydew.

Legacy

The Sun Shines Bright was nominated for the Grand Prize of the Cannes Film Festival, 1953. Critic Jonathan Rosenbaum has written a fine piece explaining why it’s his favorite John Ford film, as well as contributing to a two part video analysis of the film that compares it to Carl Theodor Dreyer’s Gertrud.
