What A Day: GOTV Kills The Reality Star by Sarah Lazarus and Crooked Media (10/30/2020)

2020.10.31 12:37 kittehgoesmeow What A Day: GOTV Kills The Reality Star by Sarah Lazarus and Crooked Media (10/30/2020)

"Kirstie, you are welcome to change the channel - just like countless viewers did every time “Veronica’s Closet” came on TV. But don’t downplay the loss of nearly 230K American lives. And please, wear a mask." - CNN, reducing Kirstie Alley to rubble

Homestretching The Facts

Donald Trump and his Large Adult Surrogates have four days left to convince voters that the virus sending their neighbors to the hospital doesn’t exist, and by golly, they’re gonna try.
In a fitting end to this election cycle, Trump’s closing strategy is best summed up by a 3 a.m. tweet.
Only 800 years after 2016, we’ve made it to the final weekend. If you haven’t volunteered yet, now is the time. If you’ve been volunteering, now is the time to go sicko mode. We have four days left to affect how this thing ends, and in these last few days we need to focus on turning out voters in Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina. Pick a state, grab your shifts, and LFG.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

You've already voted. Great! You've made sure three other people have a plan to vote. Terrific! We're gonna ask you to do a little more. It's the homestretch of the homestretch, and we need to reach every possible voter in these final days. Find all of your options to get involved and wake up on November 4 with no regrets → https://votesaveamerica.com/volunteer

Under The Radar

Did you need one last burst of incandescent rage to fuel your weekend phone banking? We, unfortunately, gotchu. Border authorities have been expelling migrant children from other countries into Mexico, in violation of U.S. policy and basic human decency. Those expulsions (which seem to number more than 200 over the last few months) have taken place under the Trump administration’s pandemic-exploiting border closure policy. But sending unaccompanied children from Guatemala or Honduras into a country where they have no connections is not only stunningly dangerous and cruel, it violates both child-welfare and immigrations laws, as well as an agreement with the Mexican government. Here’s what you can do about it.

What Else?

Former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen instructed ports to turn away asylum seekers even when they had capacity, according to the DHS inspector general—meaning Nielson lied to Congress.
A federal judge rejected the Justice Department’s attempt to dismiss a lawsuit from former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe alleging that Trump ordered his firing hours before he was set to retire as political retribution.
Philadelphia police yanked a Black toddler out of an SUV and then used him for a propaganda photo, after violently arresting and injuring his mother, who had nothing to do with the protests. Protect and serve, baby!
A Mitch McConnell-aligned PAC has dumped millions into the Michigan Senate race in a last ditch effort to unseat Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI). If you’ve got spite in your heart and cash in your pocket, here’s where to put it.
Miles “Anonymous” Taylor actively defended Trump’s cruelest immigration policies while styling himself as a #resistance icon.
Ivanka Trump has come out as “unapologetically” pro-life while styling herself as a #girlboss icon.
Kanye West gifted Kim Kardashian a hologram of her father and she shared it with the internet for some reason and now the internet is coughing up blood.
A pregnant Florida woman went into labor but refused to go to the hospital until she had voted. In many ways, we are all experiencing the labor pains...of democracy. No going to the hospital until you’ve finished delivering Joe Biden! (This went off the rails, sorry.) (Please go to the hospital if you are in labor.)
The New York Times has made a stress-relieving Election Distractor. 10/10, would be distracted again.

Be Smarter

One of the first Supreme Court cases Amy Coney Barrett will hear next week may determine whether religious conservatives have a constitutional right to discriminate against LGBTQ people. On Wednesday the justices will hear oral arguments in Fulton v. Philadelphia, in which a government contractor claims the right to still receive a government contract while denying government services to same-sex couples. The religious right was likely to walk away victorious even before Barrett was confirmed, and now it’s essentially a sure thing. The case represents an impending blow to LGBTQ equality, but it could also mean an unprecedented expansion of religious objectors’ rights to blow off other laws they don’t care for.

What A Sponsor

Today, as cities contemplate reopening and rebuilding their local economies, Lyft has expanded its Jobs Access Program to provide access to rides and additional job search support through Goodwill and United Way in 20 major cities. A ride — whether it's on a Lyft bike, scooter, or rideshare — can go a long way towards supporting an individual’s economic mobility and recovery. In the first year of the Jobs Access Program, Lyft provided nearly 20,000 rides through its partners.
The program focuses on three key interventions in the employment pipeline that are critical to individual success, and where transportation can play a major role:
Whether you’re in need of a ride or you want to donate and support others, the Jobs Access Hub makes it easy to take action. Qualifying individuals can use the Hub to see if a ride is available, and if so, Goodwill or United Way will distribute the ride credits.
LyftUp is Lyft’s comprehensive effort to expand transportation access to those who need it most. Through LyftUp, Lyft partners with leading nonprofits to help provide access to free and discounted rides to individuals and families who lack affordable, reliable transportation.

Is That Hope I Feel?

More than nine million Texans have already voted, surpassing the state’s total voter turnout in 2016. With four days left to go. Holy moly.
LGBTQ representation in the House could more than double in this election.
Keke Palmer is coming for Mandy Patinkin’s GOTV crown.
America can be good, still.

Enjoy

2019.12.07 05:57 jacobismadewell Rangers 2020 potential

I think there’s a much higher possibility now that we trade instead of sign another SP now that we’ve signed both Lyles and Gibson. Cubs make an interesting partner because we have a trade history with them and what they’re looking to trade matches our needs and vice versa. Ditto with the Red Sox (minus the history). Wouldn’t be surprised to see Odor and Mazara, along with one or more of Joe Palumbo, Kolby Allard, Brock Burk, or Taylor Hearn be traded for Contreras and David Price (ideal scenario, probably have to add some other prospects for Contreras , most likely a 3B or OF prospect which the rangers are deep in). Trading Mazara also allows for us to bring Hunter Pence back to split time at DH and in the outfield. Add CJ Cron to first base (RHH we desperately need) and Rendon and the rangers roster looks something like this:
C: Contreras 1B: Cron 2B: Solak SS: Andrus 3B: Rendon RF: Gallo CF: Santana LF: Calhoun DH: Choo
SP’s: Price/Lynn/MinoGibson/Lyles (and whoever we keep of the players mentioned above if Lyles doesn’t pan out and moves to long relief)
Pen: Jose LeClerc/Emmanuel Clase/Nick Goody/Luke Farrel/Rafael Montero/Jonathan Hernandez/Jesse Chavez
Everyone in that rangers lineup would have produced a wRc+ of over 100 last season with the exception of Andrus.
Removes the mess that was the back of our rotation last season, replacing Drew Smyly/Edison Volquez/Adrian Sampson/Ariel Jurado/Shelby Miller, in which the best player in that group posted a 5.81 ERA and replaces it with Price, Gibson, and Lyles (0.5 combined fWAR to 6.5 fWAR)
The 2019 Rangers went 78-84 and the 2020 Rangers could gain full seasons from Clase, Solak, Calhoun, and Gallo while replacing black holes at C, 1B, and 3B and fix an abysmal back of the rotation while still winding up with a payroll of only 180 million for the 2019 season. Keep in mind Rangers would gain 21 million back after the 2019 season whenever Choo’s contract expires. For contrast the 2015 and 2016 Rangers teams had payrolls of 181 and 180 million respectively.
With these additions I personally think the 2020 Rangers make a run for 2nd in the AL west running neck and neck with the A’s and most likely wind up with a wild card spot. Do y’all think this is feasible and if so what do you have the Rangers finishing at in 2020 in this scenario?

2019.04.21 11:17 tranypanda7 Jeremy Botter good article on ESPN and UFC “match made in heaven”. some interesting info / overview

The UFC debuted on ESPN in January, and one thing is clear. If you thought Dana White had some real strong feelings for Conor McGregor back in the halcyon Ferrari days, it’s nothing compared to the way White is feeling about ESPN right now. White seems to love ESPN more than even Ronda Rousey, or maybe even blackjack.
And who can blame him? ESPN’s broadcasts are far more professional than anything Fox Sports ever did. In terms of shoulder programming alone—the hype shows and character profiles and SportsCenter appearances—there’s zero comparison between the two. The production is better and more creative. The increased usage of Megan Olivi, who is enormously talented and will someday be a household name in a real sport, is a particular highlight.
Our ears aren’t tormented by Face the Pain anymore, thank you baby Jesus, hallelujah. A lot of the ESPN shows start an hour earlier, which is great for an old man like me. Joe Rogan is still doing his job, but I guess you can’t win them all.

ESPN has assembled the best collection of media talent in the business, from Ariel Helwani (who has transcended this sport to become our Adam Schefter and Howard Cosell in one package), professional personality Chael Sonnen, the startlingly handsome and underrated super-reporter Brett Okamoto and veteran Jeff Wagenheim, who hides his immense talent and wisdom behind a Hawaiian shirt gimmick.
Everything ESPN does regarding the UFC works in perfect sync. ESPN breaks every news story. The live events feel like they mean more, even if they’re still featuring a bunch of people you’ve never heard of, because it’s ESPN. And ESPN clearly is invested in making new UFC stars for a mainstream audience.
That’s because they are invested.
Heavily.
The ESPN/UFC relationship was so hunky-dory that, after less than three months together, they decided to extend the partnership an extra two years. The stunning part of the news, however, was ESPN’s decision to make ESPN+ the exclusive home for UFC pay per views. You can’t buy them on DirecTV or your cable outlet anymore. You have to have an ESPN+ subscription—which frankly is a steal at $5 a month—in order to even purchase the events, which still cost $59.95. And you have to stream them.
There’s a downside to this, of course. High speed internet is everywhere these days, but it is not everywhere. Viewers with slow bandwidth are now either forced to watch a streaming event with loads of buffering, or they can go to a sportsbar. There’s no other legal option. The UFC considered this, I’m sure, but then they considered how much money ESPN was willing to give them in order to gain those exclusive rights.
The money won.
Subscribe now
The UFC took the average profit they pulled in from pay per views for the past three years, including the massive Conor McGregor fights, and that’s the check ESPN wrote in order to secure exclusive rights. What was once a deal worth $150 million per year is now conservatively estimated to be at least double that, if not triple or more.
UFC pay per view numbers will plummet because there is only one way to order PPV’s, and not every household is capable of utilizing the technology required to do so. There will be issues with the streaming itself, as there were during The UFC 2326 launch of the product—I should note here that my stream was flawless and even better than cable or satellite, but I have ridiculously fast internet and understand there were hundreds of people with less-enjoyable experiences.
But it doesn't matter. Not anymore. The UFC is guaranteed their money. They’re getting paid no matter how bad their events are or how few people tune in or how many times their stream shits the bed. ESPN is now the promoter. They’re the ones who need big subscriber numbers and little churn. They’re the ones who need UFC’s top stars to continue fighting in marquee matchups. ESPN will market the hell out of these events because they have to. Because they are on the hook for a ton of money.
The UFC/ESPN deal is still in its infancy. The wheels might eventually fall off if ratings decline even more, or if Conor McGregor truly goes off the deep end and causes ESPN the kind of embarrassment they can’t overlook the way they do with Greg Hardy. We’ve seen every UFC deal ever, from partners to athletes, start at love at first sight before deteriorating into ugliness. That may happen one day.
I doubt it, though. I don’t believe ESPN is going to take mixed martial arts to the next level, because I believe the UFC reached that level years ago and won’t ever go beyond it.
We may love fighting, but to love fighting and violence is not normal. We all have something a little wrong with us, or else we would not find enjoyment in this stuff.
I’m not sure even ESPN, with all their sheen and gloss, can apply enough lipstick to make this pig anything but hideous to the rest of the world. The best we can hope for is they make the experience just a little better for those of us who can’t seem to pry ourselves away.

2018.11.26 02:56 burlyprotector List of all FilmStruck streaming movies (as of Nov 25, 2018)

With FilmStruck three days away from ending, I know that lots of you--like me--will want to take note of all the rare streaming movies you missed. I have a blog about hard to find movies (Hidden Films) and it's bad enough I miss so many rare films screened at MoMA, Lincoln Center, etc.; now this, too!
Anyway, I know there's a bunch on here that can otherwise only be seen at college film libraries or perhaps third party DVD sites; stay tuned for more details on WHERE you can find the most obscure of these movies. But for now, here is the list (FilmStruck movies only; I'm working on a list of the Criterion streaming offerings, though I saw an announcement that Criterion is planning a new streaming service: https://www.criterion.com/current/posts/6044-new-independent-criterion-channel-to-launch-spring-2019

2018.04.23 18:57 Johnnycc UPDATED! 106 Secrets, Details, and Backstories of Magic Kingdom

So last month I posted this list of 100 things and you guys really seemed to enjoy it. But, as some people pointed out, a few of the things on the list were no longer there. So when I was in the Magic Kingdom a couple weeks ago I decided to check my list to see if everything was accurate. As it turns out there were a few that were indeed no around any longer... but what I also noticed is that there were probably a dozen or so things that I never knew about that I wanted to add to my list. I love that even after years and years of going and researching, there's still things to discover. That's because detail and theming is king in the Magic Kingdom.
So here is that list updated. Some things have been removed but there have been more than a few added as well.
As I said before, Walt wanted details in his parks... and the theming of Magic Kingdom is a testament to Walt's vision. Enjoy!
Main Street, USA:
  1. The entrance to the park is like a movie theatre. The ticket area is the lobby. The tunnels lined with "coming attraction" posters are the previews. The train station is the curtain. The names on the windows on Main Street are the credits.
  2. Explore the Train Station. There are displays about Disney’s history with trains, a train schedule, info about each of the trains on the Walt Disney World Railroad, and works of art that represent the history of railroads in America.
  3. On the station stairs you may hear a telegraph. It’s a Morse code version of Walt Disney’s 1955 opening day speech at Disneyland. (possibly also at the Frontierland station)
  4. The Magic Kingdom opening day dedication plaque is in the center of Town Square where the flags are located. It is moved around sometimes, but always stays in that area.
  5. Don’t miss the statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse on the bench titled “Sharing the Magic.” Roy, of course, is the reason we have Disney World, as he came out of retirement and lead the project to completion after Walt died.
  6. A fairly unknown Main Street story is that the Confectionary was originally owned by Thomas McCrum. In reality, he was a dentist who in 1922 paid Walt to make a short film about teeth (“Tommy Tucker’s Tooth”) when Walt had no money and was close to losing his first animation studio. This was one of Walt’s very first movies, and the money he made from it allowed him to pay off his debt, recharged his ambitions, and helped finance his next project, the Alice comedies. It’s very possible that without Dr. McCrum Walt’s career would have ended right there. As for a dentist owning a candy store, Imagineers thought it would be funny… a way for the dentist to make sure he always has customers. Unfortunately, details in the Confectionary to explore this backstory have become almost impossible to find since they removed his name from the sign outside and have taken out most of the older props.
  7. A classic Main Street backstory can be found across the street at the Emporium. As seen by a sign on the window in the front of the store, Osh Popham is the owner and operator. The sign reads “Osh Popham – Proprietor.” There is also a date behind it that says the Emporium was established in 1863. Osh Popham is based on a shopkeeper played by Burl Ives in the 1963 Disney film “Summer Magic”. Osh decorated his store with elegance and charm, such as stained glass signs, wood carvings, ornate ceilings, and a beautiful medallion he had commissioned that hangs outside the side door.
  8. Osh kept up with the changing times. He had his store’s expansions wired for electricity. Due to the unreliability of the new technology, Osh had custom chandeliers designed to also support gas lights. The electric lamps point downwards and the gas fixtures up.
  9. Osh’s business was booming so he decided to expand his shop. He bought a portion of Center Street. His latest expansion debuted in 1901 (as seen by a date above a doorframe) and was called the Emporium Gallery. It was a turn of the century expansion… 1901 in the backstory and 2001 in real life when the Emporium actually expanded.
  10. On the back wall of the Emporium Gallery there is a large mural displaying Osh’s happy customers and employees enjoying their shopping experience.
  11. As you are walking down Main Street, just as you pass the Uptown Jewelry Store on the right side down Center Street. You will hear the sounds of tap dancing along with the voice of an instructor, and the sound of someone singing coming from open second story windows named “Singing Lessons” and “School of Dance”.
  12. Find Lady and the Tramp’s paw prints in front of the stairs at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant.
  13. On the left side of Main Street there is a door next to the Fashion and Apparel store. It reads “Open Since ’71 – Magic Kingdom Casting Agency – ‘It Takes People to Make the Dream a Reality’ – Walter Elias Disney – Founder and Director Emeritus.” This is a tribute to all the cast members at Walt Disney World. ’71 is obviously a reference to Magic Kingdom’s opening year.
  14. Another reference to Magic Kingdom’s opening year can be found on the Main Street Fire Station: “Engine Co. 71.”
  15. The windows on Main Street are legendary. They’re the highest honor one can receive in the company. Here’s a few and where to find them:
    • Center Street – Painting & Sculpture – Herbert Ryman, Blaine Gibson, Mary Blair. Mary Blair designed It’s a Small World and painted the giant mural in the Grand Concourse at the Contemporary Resort. Blaine Gibson created the Partner’s Statue and the singing busts in the Haunted Mansion. Herb Ryman drew the first ever illustration of Disneyland with Walt.
    • Broggie’s Buggies – Roger Broggie, Wheelwright (on the corner of the Fire Station and the Emporium). Broggie oversaw the development of Audio-Animatronics, the Monorail, the PeopleMover, and the Omnimover system.
    • Big Top Theatrical – Claude Coats, Marc Davis, Bill Justice (above the Main Street Athletic Club). Claude Coats was an Imagineer who designed sets for attractions like Haunted Mansion and Pirates. Marc Davis was one of Walt’s “Nine Old Men” and designed characters and scenes for the Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room, the Adventureland Tiki Statues, Carousel of Progress, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, and Country Bears. Bill Justice programmed audio-animatronics for classic attractions.
    • Walter E. Disney – Graduate School of Design & Master Planning – Instructors, Marvin Davis, - Headmaster, Richard Irvine – Dean of Design, John Hench (above the Plaza Restaurant). These Imagineers are some of the most important in the history of the company. Richard Irvine helped construct Disneyland and was the master planner for Disney World after Walt died. John Hench was a legendary Imagineer who helped master plan Walt Disney World and Disneyland as well. He designed Tomorrowland, Space Mountain, Spaceship Earth, as well as contributed to the designs of Main Street, Cinderella Castle, EPCOT Center, Adventureland, and Carousel of Progress. Marvin Davis arranged the layout of Disneyland with Walt, drew the blueprint for Disney World, helped design the Polynesian, as well as the exterior of the Haunted Mansion and some Main Street buildings.
    • The Camelot Core—Road Show Installations—Tony Baxter (above Casey’s Corner). Tony Baxter is a legendary Imagineer who designed Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and Journey into Imagination
    • “If We Can Dream It – We Can Do It!” – Roy O. Disney – Dreamers & Doers Development Co. (above the Main Street Confectionery).
    • Buena Vista Magic Lantern Slides – Treat Your Friends To Our Special Tricks - Yale Gracey (above the Confectionery). Yale Gracey was the master of special effects and lightning, more famously seen in the Haunted Mansion.
    • General Joe’s Building Permits Licensed in Florida Gen. Joe Potter, Raconteur (above the Confectionary). Joe Potter was tapped by Walt to oversee the initial construction of Disney World, including transforming the Florida swamps into underground utilities and other initial infrastructure.
    • The Big Wheel Co. – Horseless Carriages – Bob Gurr (above Main Street Fashion and Appeal). Imagineer Bob Gurr designed ride vehicles including the Monorail and coined the term “Omnimover.”
    • Hollywood Publishing Co. Manuscripts and Melodramas – F.X. Atencio, Al Bertino, Marty Sklar (above the Confectionery facing the Emporium). “X” Atencio helped write the script for Pirates of the Caribbean, and wrote the lyrics for “Yo Ho (A Pirates Life for Me)” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts”. Bertino helped create the Country Bear Jamboree (and is also honored in the show with Big Al being created in his image). The legendary Marty Sklar worked on every Disney park since the beginning until his death in 2017. He wrote dialogue for many attractions and was the head of Imagineering.
    • You Show 'em – Morgan Evans DTS – Above Crystal Arts (above Crystal Arts). Morgan “Bill” Evans was a legendary Imagineer horticulturalist who was in charge of landscaping designs for Walt Disney World including Magic Kingdom, The Polynesian, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom.
    • Walt Disney World Railroad Office – Keeping Dreams on Track – Walter E. Disney, Chief Engineer (above the Train Station before entering Magic Kingdom).
  16. Seven Summits Expeditions – Frank G. Wells, President (above Crystal Arts). This is a special one. Frank Wells was the president of the Disney Company in the 80s. He loved mountain climbing and his life’s goal was to clime all the highest mountains on all the continents. He came close, getting six of the seven, but he died in a helicopter accident. His window honors his seven summits expedition and is the highest window on all of Main Street.
  17. There’s a couple Main Street windows that reference the process of finding and buying the land for Disney’s Florida project:
    • Pseudonym Real Estate Dev. Co. – Roy Davis President (Center Street to the right). Roy Davis was Roy Disney’s fake name – or pseudonym – when visiting Florida in secret to look for locations for their new park.
    • M.T. Lott Co. Real Estate (above Crystal Arts). M.T. Lotts was one of Walt’s dummy corporations used to buy Florida land in secret so people wouldn’t know Walt was buying and jack up the prices. Walt’s sense of humor was obvious with the name of this one.
Adventureland:
  1. Imagineers designed the transition from Main Street to Adventureland to be anchored by the Crystal Palace. While on Main Street, it is Victorian turn-of-the-century themed (stained glass, intricate detailing, and well-manicured plantings). When transitioning to Adventureland, it becomes 19th century British-rule-in-Africa themed (stripped green awnings, pane windows and an overgrown and dense landscaping).
  2. Check out the jewels and charms embedded in the pavement around Aladdin’s Flying Carpets and the Adventureland Bazar.
  3. You can find one of the smallest Hidden Mickey on property here, it is on one of the medallions in the ground.
  4. Explore the details of the Adventureland Bazar, including little things like crossed swords on the wall and the appropriately themed ceilings for each different themed store.
  5. In Pirates of the Caribbean FP+ queue there is a dungeon cell window where you can see two skeletons playing chess below. Legend has it they’re forever stuck in a stalemate.
  6. The Jungle Cruise queue has many funny little details to look out for, including:
    • Help Wanted on the Amazon River Base
    • Daredevil Trips over Schweitzer Falls
    • Missing Persons and Missing Boats
    • Free Kittens sign
    • Mess Hall menu
    • Live Cargo Holding Area
    • Employee of the Month
    • Spider in the box
    • Gorilla cage
  7. Keep your ears open for Albert Awol, the Voice of the Jungle. This is the radio show that Skippers listen to on their trips. There are many funny jokes, puns, and examples of Skipper incompetence to be heard.
  8. For Adventurer’s Club fans, a tag for Pamelia Perkins, who was the club’s president, can be found inside a wire cage at the start of the queue.
  9. Some of the crates around the ride have funny warnings and notices. There are also tributes to Imagineers such as the Evans Exotic Plant Exporters (tribute to Bill Evans who landscaped the Jungle Cruise and Adventureland).
  10. The backstory of Skipper’s Canteen, the restaurant based on the Jungle Cruise is that it’s owned by Alberta Falls, granddaughter of Dr. Albert Falls. He established the Jungle Navigation Company, and created the Jungle Cruise. Dr. Falls was a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, or S.E.A., and this secret group used to hang out at the Adventurer’s Club. There is a picture of Alberta and Albert in the waiting room.
  11. Once inside, look up to the second floor to see three office doors each honoring an Imagineer with a connection to the Jungle Cruise: Bill Evans, who was in charge of landscaping. Marc Davis, who created many of the attraction’s famous scenes like the Elephants bath the rhino attack. Harper Goff, the art director of the ride who worked with Walt to create the original concept of the attraction.
  12. The main dining room is the Crew Mess Hall. Notice the Backside of Water crate, a reference to the classic joke from the Jungle Cruise.
  13. There are also Christmas decorations on a shelf in the Mess Hall, a reference to the Jingle Cruise overlay during the holidays.
  14. Check out the library while going from the Mess Hall into the other rooms. In addition to a few books by Dr. Albert Falls. there are many great titles such as:
    • Songs of the Tiki Bird by Prof Boag, a reference to is Wally Boag, a Disney Legend who voices Jose in the Enchanted Tiki Room.
    • Native Orange Birds of the Southeastern United States by Dr. Sid Truss.
    • Pirates of the Caribbean by Coats, a reference to Imagineer Claude Coats who helped design Pirates.
    • The Illustrated Guide to Radio Broadcasting was composed by the Skipper behind the Voice of the Jungle you hear in the Jungle Cruise queue, Albert AWOL
    • Boat Evacuation Procedures by Cap. Size.
    • FUZNEWI PDMWH CHF JD U written by Albert the Monkey
    • Friends for Dinner by T. Sam (the legendary Trader Sam of course)
    • The Overwhelming Dodo Population by Dr. Francis X. Tinct
    • Crooning Flowers by Sherman and Sherman, a reference to the Sherman Brothers who wrote the “Tiki Room” song (“…and the flowers croon”)
    • Meeting Royalty by Marty Sklar (legendary Imagineer who worked on every Disney park)
    • True Adventures by WED (Walter Elias Disney)
  15. The library also has The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. But look at the angle of it. S.E.A. members would pull the book to open a secret passageway to get to the secret meeting room. Notice the book has been pulled, and you can see that the secret passageway has been opened.
  16. Dr. Falls used to hold meetings in the S.E.A. Secret Meeting Room. You can examine Dr. Fall’s collection of butterflies, ancient artifacts, and a painting of Dr. Falls on the Jungle Cruise.
  17. Going back through the library, there is a display of fezzes from members of the SEA. Some of these were worn by characters of the Adventurer’s Club.
  18. The animals on the roof peaks of the Enchanted Tiki Room look like Asian water buffalos, but they can also be seen in Frontierland where from a distance they resemble longhorn steer. The Imagineers wanted to keep the proper theming for each land, so they made sure the animals would properly themed. A water buffalo would be found in more exotic locations, and the steer found in frontier areas.
Frontierland:
  1. The buildings in Frontierland are designed with historic accuracy in mind. This town takes you through the 1800s. To figure out the exact year that various buildings were modeled after, just look at the years seen above the door. Town Hall is structurally consistent with buildings from 1867. Pecos Bills is styled after saloons from 1878. Grizzly Hall, where Country Bear Jamboree can be seen, is from 1898.
  2. You can also see civilization starting to creep through Frontierland. The first couple structures of the land are made of wood and logs. But starting with the Trading Post, buildings start to get more permanent and are built with stones and bricks.
  3. Buildings in Frontierland have a raised sidewalk in front of them. This is a historically accurate feature that would be consistent with buildings in the Old West, which would have had dirty and dusty streets. The raised wooden sidewalks were designed to keep boots and skirts clean and away from the dirt of the roads.
  4. The Getaway Stagecoach Line is the DVC kiosk in Frontierland. Like every great advertisement, a poster for the Stagecoach Line promises a marvelous trip with all the comfort and convenience one could ask for when traveling through the West. However, like every responsible consumer it is best to read the increasingly small fine print…
  5. The light fixtures of the land are themed like old fashion lanterns.
  6. Next to Town Hall there is a building that is labeled Chinese Laundry. There was a big Chinese presence in the Old West, and Chinese laundries were a common site.
  7. Country Bear Jamboree has claw marks from past visitors on the floor of the waiting room.
  8. A crate under a wagon near Country Bears Jamboree says "Davis Tobacco," a tribute to Imagineer Marc Davis who worked on creating the attraction.
  9. Pecos Bill’s Tall Tale Inn and Café is Frontierland’s quick service, and the backstory is that it was founded by Pecos Bill himself, as explained by the framed story on the wall where you enter. Bill is a popular character from the Old West folklore. His inn became a destination for other popular characters from Frontier times, and each patron left a little gift for Bill representing some of their “tall tales”. This includes Paul Bunyan’s axe, Annie Oakley’s gun and cards with bullet holes shot through them, Davy Crockett's gear, and poker cards from “Wild Bill” Hickok (the cards are not his infamous “Dead Man’s Hand” because it would have been impossible for Hickok to leave that as a gift).
  10. The backstory of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is that the town of Tumbleweed discovered gold in the Big Thunder Mountain and became a thriving mining town. Barnabas T. Bullion established the Big Thunder Mining Company to find the gold. But the mountain was protective of its gold and cursed anyone who tried to take it. There were cave-ins, equipment failings, and flash floods that wiped out the town, destroying the mining company. Now the railroad travels through the abandoned mine shafts and ghost town of Tumbleweed.
  11. In the queue for Big Thunder Mountain you can notice a portrait of the founder of the mine, Barabus T. Bullion. The actual man in the portrait is Tony Baxter, legendary Imagineer who designed Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain.
  12. In the Big Thunder queue you can also find a patent for an automatic train break on the wall dating back to 1877. The patent is attributed to T. Baxter… or Tony Baxter.
  13. Near the exit of Big Thunder Mountain you can find a crate that has the pun “Lytum and Hyde Explosives Company.” You can also see these crates with dynamite in them in rafters in the queue.
  14. A tribute to the never built Frontierland attraction, Western River Expedition, can be seen in the same area of the queue. It’s a crate of “Western River Explosives.”
  15. In Splash Mountain’s loading area, look up and see a Brer Rabbit weather vane.
  16. After exiting Splash Mountain go into the Briar Patch gift shop. Look up in the shop to see Brer Rabbit’s home.
  17. The backstory of Splash Mountain can be found on the front page of a newspaper called Rabbit Tales, hanging on the wall in the Frontierland station for the Walt Disney World Railroad. The front-page headline reads “Guests Plunge 52 Feet, Wind Up in Briar Patch.” The article is very elaborative and explains how Splash Mountain came to be.
  18. Walk along the bridge going from Liberty Square to Frontierland. When nearing Tom Sawyer’s Island look to the left and you’ll see a little waterfall. This is supposed to represent the start of the Mississippi River and is nicknamed the Little Mississippi. Just as the real Mississippi separates the West from the East, the little one represents the Western-themed Frontierland to the more Eastern-themed Liberty Square.
Liberty Square:
  1. When walking through the entrance of Liberty Square from the hub, you will see a lamp post surrounded by crates of tea, an obvious reference to the Boston Tea Party of 1773.
  2. There is a piece of fencing that separates the stroller parking that represents a hitching post for horses, which would have been a common site in Colonial times.
  3. The Liberty Tree is a live oak tree more than 135 years old. There are 13 lanterns that hang from it to represent the 13 original colonies.
  4. On a building near the Hall of Presidents in an upper window there are two lanterns, representing the famous “One if by land, two if by sea.”
  5. Walk around the corner of the same building and you will see that there is a rifle displayed in an upper window. In Revolutionary times, this would be used as a symbol that the men were home, armed and ready to answer the call if needed.
  6. The shutters in Liberty Square sag because at the time of the Revolutionary War, colonists melted down hinges sold to them by the British to make shots for their weapons. Leather hinges were used in their place, resulting in the sagging shutters.
  7. There is a brown streak in the Liberty Square walkway. In traditional Revolutionary times no indoor plumbing existed, so people would take their waste and dump it from their windows into the streets outside. The brown pavement represents the sewage in the streets of early America.
  8. The Christmas Shoppe is actually three separate shops owned by three different colonial families, a German family, a woodcarver's family, and a musician's family. You can notice little differences as you pass through each of the three rooms.
  9. The Haunted Mansion’s queue is loaded with great tributes in the gravestones:
    • “Here Lies Good Old Fred – A Great Big Rock Fell Off His Head.” Fred Joerger was an Imagineer who designed many of the classic rock and mountain formations of Disney World, such as Big Thunder Mountain and the Canadian Rockies.
    • “In Memory of Grandpa Marc.” Marc Davis was an Imagineer who created the story and many of the characters for the Haunted Mansion.
    • “Master Gracey Laid to Rest.” Imagineer Yale Gracey was the master of special effects, including the famous Pepper’s Ghost seen frequently in the Haunted Mansion. Cast members will often place a red rose on the tomb to show respect.
    • “First Lady – Our Haunting Harriet.” This tombstone honors the first female Imagineer Harriet Burns.
    • “At Peaceful Rest Lies Brother Claude.” Claude Coats was responsible for designing The Haunted Mansion set and also contributed to the storyline.
    • “Farewell Mister Frees – Your Voice Will Carry.” Paul Frees was a voice actor who performed as the Ghost Host.
    • “A Train Made a Stain of Uncle Blaine.” Blaine Gibson was an Imagineering sculptor who sculpted the singing busts of the Mansion and the Partners Statue.
    • “Requiescat Francies Xavier.” X (for Xavier) Atencio was an Imagineer who wrote the lyrics for Grim Grinning Ghosts.
  10. In the queue you can see footsteps of the mansion’s caretaker and footsteps of his dog in the cement near the gate. There is also a doggy door in the gate.
  11. Did you know there is a murder mystery in the Haunted Queue? Check out the five busts in the middle. This thing has great details, here’s a quick breakdown of it:
    • Uncle Jacob was rich. You can see his treasure as part of his bust. Uncle Jacob was killed for his wealth, as indicated by his epitaph. But who killed him?
    • Uncle Jacob’s epitaph says he swallowed poison. Bertie, another bust, has a bottle of poison on his plaque. Bernie also has a serpent draped on his shoulder, so he was able to get poisonous snake venom to kill Jacob.
    • Aunt Florence (Jacob’s wife) wants revenge, so she shoots Bertie (notice the gun on her plaque). But who killed Florence? The epitaph on her bust says she was found face down in canary seeds. Check out the Twins busts who have a dead bird on their plaque. Now check between the busts of the twins to discover a bag full of bird seeds. So the twins killed Florence. Now who killed the twins? Check their epitaph. They died with “identical bumps on identical heads.” Check out Cousin Maude’s plaque on her bust and notice the hammer on it. She killed the twins with identical bumps on each of their heads.
    • But how did Maude die? Her epitaph says she never awoke and her dreams went up in smoke. This is maybe the best little detail of the whole thing. How did she go “up in smoke”? Check behind her head and notice the matches that Maude was using to keep her hair in place. Apparently they caught fire one night while she was sleeping! Bravo, Imagineers.
  12. The Pipe Organ in the queue has the name “Ravenscroft.” This is a tribute to Thurl Ravenscroft who sings “Grim Grinning Ghosts”.
  13. Make sure you spot the infamous wedding ring in the cement. It’s near the Captain’s crypt closer to the entrance. The backstory is that the original “ring” was actually a leftover piece of metal support in the cement. But guests created the legend that it belonged to the bride in the Mansion who threw it out a window. The area was paved over and passionate Haunted Mansion fans got upset that the “ring” was gone. Imagineers heard their pleas and when the ride was updated with an interactive queue in 2011, the ring was brought back and made to look like an actual wedding ring.
  14. Check out Madame Leota’s headstone near the entrance. She might just open her eyes and move her head around.
  15. While walking into the stretching room, don’t miss the portrait of Master Gracey. Take a minute to notice him aging in the picture.
  16. In the post-queue area there are a couple crypts with spooky puns of the dearly departed.
  17. A tribute to Mr. Toad, the beloved Fantasyland attraction replaced by Winnie the Pooh, is in the Pet Cemetery after exiting the attraction. Mr. Toad’s gravestone is near the top of the cemetery. There is a rumor that the epitaph on the tomb says “Mr. Toad –Sad But True – Not As Marketable – As Winnie the Pooh.” Imagineers still a little bitter about it.
  18. Memento Mori, the Haunted Mansion-themed gift shop, has a backstory. It was the home of Madame Leota, the famous ghost of the Mansion, during her earthly years. Many of her belongings are still located in the shop, including potions and a portrait of someone assumed to be Leota back in her “corruptible, mortal state.” Leota’s face appears within the shop’s mirror, looking out at us from her world beyond.
Fantasyland:
  1. Ever wonder why Fantasyland has a medieval fair theme? When Disneyland first opened many of the Fantasyland attraction façades weren’t finished, so banners and decorative tents were used to cover up the unfinished parts. The theme stuck and was even carried over to Florida.
  2. Continuing with the medieval theme, check out the pink pillars around it’s a small world. They are designed to look like lances.
  3. Behind the castle is a fountain with a statue of Cinderella. Lower your head when facing the statue and the crown from the backdrop now sits perfectly on her head. Imagineers did this so children would be the first to see Cinderella was a princess.
  4. Find the eight hidden Pascals along the brook in the gardens across from the Tangled restrooms.
  5. Maximus’s hoof print can be found in the ground by the Tangled area.
  6. No mirrors in the Rapunzel men’s bathroom. Hanging up instead are frying pans!
  7. There is actually a Hidden Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in New Fantasyland. It is formed by three pebbles in the middle of the walkway across from the "Enchanted Tales with Belle" sign and in front of the main walkway to Be Our Guest.
  8. When eating in the Ballroom at Be Our Guest, notice the gentle snowfall that can be seen in the back windows.
  9. At Be Our Guest there are two rows of suits of armor in the hall used for lunchtime quick-service ordering. Listen closely and you might hear them talk to each other. They might snore, talk to each other, or complain that their armor is itchy.
  10. You can’t miss the fountain of Gaston in front of his tavern. But how did it get there? Check out the dedication plaque at the bottom of the statue to see who generously gifted this “tribute” to the village.
  11. In Gaston’s Tavern there is a dart board and a scoreboard. Gaston wins a lot, but he might not be that good actually… at least according to the darts sticking out of the wall.
  12. Check out all the antlers in the Tavern. He really does use them in all of his decorating! Gaston even keeps the keys to his tavern hanging on one of the antlers displayed next to his portrait above the fireplace.
  13. When inside Bonjour! Village Gifts, ever wonder who that is in the portrait in the back of the store? It is Magic Kingdom’s Vice President Phil Holmes. Notice the 40 year ring on his hand representing his 40 years with the company and a Magic Kingdom map on the table. One of the first roles Phil had at the Magic Kingdom was on the Haunted Mansion. Look incredibly closely at the bookshelf behind him to see a sample of the famous wallpaper from the Mansion and a partial picture of the Mansion’s entrance sign. Also behind him on the shelf is a gold statue of Donald Duck, awarded to cast members for 40 years of service. There are also peanuts on the table, a representation of Dumbo’s Storybook Circus that was part of the New Fantasyland expansion.
  14. The open book on the shelf in the back of the store is the story of Beauty and the Beast in French.
  15. At the DVC sign-up area there is a sign that says “H. Goff – Cartography.” This is a reference to legendary Imagineer Harper Goff was involved in the set design for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the attraction that used to be in this area.
  16. The giant squid from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is found on the weather vane at the Cartography Shop across from the Little Mermaid ride.
  17. In the queue for the Little Mermaid ride when going through the rock formations where the wooden beam is broken, right before entering the cave, check across the water to the carvings of the stones. There is a carving of the Nautilus, the submarine used in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
  18. Imagineers bottled up some of the water from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea before it was closed and stored it at their headquarters for 18 years. When the Little Mermaid attraction opened, the bottled water was poured into Ariel’s waters, returning a piece of the past to New Fantasyland
  19. One of the most unique and hardest to find Hidden Mickeys can be found at the exit of the Little Mermaid ride. It is a Hidden Steamboat Willie. Look to the right after exiting the attraction and it is carved into the landscape, composing three or four different rocks. It’s brilliantly hidden. The easiest place to start looking is the wheel to the left (maybe try checking to see if you can spot the spokes on the circular rock), then you can see his nose, face, hat and hand, follow it down and you see his shorts with the buttons and his leg and foot is on the rock in front.
  20. There is another 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea tribute in the queue for the Winnie the Pooh ride. Duck into Pooh’s house in the queue and look above the doorway to see the Nautilus submarine carved into the wood.
  21. The Winnie the Pooh ride replaced Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, which was incredibly popular with Disney fanatics and Imagineers alike. There is a tribute at the Haunted Mansion pet cemetery, but another tribute was added to the second scene of Pooh ride, where you can see a picture of Mr. Toad handing over the deed for the property to Owl.
  22. Vultures that were part of the classic dark ride Snow White’s Scary Adventure can be found overlooking the Seven Dwarves Mine Train.
  23. Look at the pavement of Storybook Circus. There are peanuts embedded in the ground near Dumbo.
Tomorrowland:
  1. The current backstory of Tomorrowland is that it is a functional city. Near the entrance you’ll find advertisements for the Tomorrowland hotel and some of the special events taking place in the city. One of them is advertising that Leonard Burnedstar is in town and conducting the Martin Pops Orchestra. He’s performing an “Outer Space Concerto in Ursa Minor.” The puns are so stupid but classic Disney!
  2. You can see the Contemporary Resort from Tomorrowland, but from no other land in Magic Kingdom. Imagineers didn’t want the lands’ themes ruined by non-themed outside factors. Since the Contemporary was built to resemble a futuristic structure, it could blend in with Tomorrowland.
  3. You’ve probably seen the giant black ball in Tomorrowland. That is a kugel ball and it weighs over 13,000 pounds. It’s a granite ball supported by a thin layer of water. It’s a perfect sphere and placed on a base that has the exact same curvature as the ball. Despite its weight, with this exact configuration, the magic of physics takes over and makes it possible for anyone to be move it.
  4. Near the load area for the TTA, there is an intergalactic phone booth. Step inside and pick up the phone to hear some calls from across the galaxy.
  5. You can also read the local newspaper, “The Tomorrowland Times” being sold near Astro Orbiters.
  6. Space Mountain’s backstory is that it is space travel for tourists. In the queue there is a sign that reads "Welcome Space Travelers - STARPORT SEVEN-FIVE - Your Gateway to the Galaxy." The “SEVEN-FIVE” is a reference to 1975, the year Space Mountain opened.
  7. After exiting the ride you’ll pass a baggage claim area for missing luggage from space travelers.
  8. While on the moving sidewalk after the ride there is a scene for the Tomorrowland Station MK 1 – Command Center, keeping with the story of Space Mountain being one of many stations for space travel. After that there are scenes with television monitors advertising other various exotic places you can travel to, including Mercury Peak and the Coral Moons of Pisces 7.
  9. At the Carousel of Progress check out the poster in the front that’s an advertisement for the attraction from the 1964 NY World's Fair. This is where Walt first debuted the attraction. The little sign on the bottom of the poster provides more details.
  10. While on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, listen for the line "Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow, please contact Mr. Johnson in the control tower to confirm your flight to the moon." Mr. Tom Morrow is obviously a play on “Tomorrow”. Mr. Johnson starred in a past attraction Mission to Mars. This line also pays tribute to another past Tomorrowland attraction Flight to the Moon.
  11. Also on the TTA you’ll also see a futuristic beauty salon, keeping with the story that Tomorrowland is a functioning city.
  12. Finally, and this isn’t even a secret detail but it’s worth mentioning, while on the TTA don’t forget to check out the model of Walt’s vision of Progress City, the original concept model for EPCOT.

2018.02.27 07:22 Johnnycc 100 Secrets, Details, and Backstories of Magic Kingdom

So this is the last in my installments of my list of Disney details. I'm glad you guys liked the Animal Kingdom and World Showcase ones. So finally, here's the Magic Kingdom. Now this thing is exhaustive. I've spent a ridiculous amount of time over the years compiling this one. I don't know if this is something to be proud of or embarrassed by! I'm pretty sure that all these things are still there, but there might be a couple that are gone. And for all the info here, I'm sure there's a bunch of things I'm still missing. Walt wanted details in his parks... and the theming of Magic Kingdom is a testament to Walt's vision. Some of this stuff was created by him and his handpicked Imagineers, and some of it is barely three years old. But the spirit of Walt lives on in this park, in Animal Kingdom, and any other park where theming is king and details overflow. Enjoy!
Main Street, USA:
  1. The entrance to the park is like a movie theatre. The ticket area is the lobby. The tunnels lined with "coming attraction" posters are the previews. The train station is the curtain. The names on the windows on Main Street are the credits.
  2. Explore the Train Station. There are displays about Disney’s history with trains, a train schedule, and works of art that represent the history of railroads in America.
  3. On the station stairs you may hear a telegraph. It’s a Morse code version of Walt Disney’s 1955 opening day speech at Disneyland. (This might be heard at the Frontierland train stop).
  4. The Magic Kingdom opening day dedication plaque is in the center of Town Square where the flags are located. It is moved around sometimes, but always stays in that area.
  5. Don’t miss the statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse on the bench titled “Sharing the Magic.” Roy, of course, is the reason we have Disney World, as he came out of retirement and lead the project to completion after Walt died.
  6. A fairly unknown Main Street story is that the Confectionary is owned by Thomas McCrum. In reality, he was a dentist who in 1922 paid Walt to make a short film about teeth (“Tommy Tucker’s Tooth”) when Walt had no money and was close to losing his first animation studio. This was one of Walt’s very first movies, and the money he made from it allowed him to pay off his debt, recharged his ambitions, and helped finance his next project, the Alice comedies. It’s very possible that without Dr. McCrum Walt’s career would have ended right there. As for a dentist owning a candy store, Imagineers thought it would be funny… a way for the dentist to make sure he always has customers.
  7. Finding details in the Confectionary to explore this backstory has gotten harder since they removed his name from the sign outside and have taken out some of the older props, like a framed picture of Dr. McCrum. But if you work for it, you can find some clues. The backstory is that McCrumb went to the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, where Thomas was impressed with all the mechanical marvels on display. He decided to try and create some new devices by himself, and he started used them to make candy. A framed poster from the Exposition can be found in the store. Also in the back corner, behind the fudge counter, are some of McCrumb’s earliest machine models.
  8. A classic Main Street backstory can be found across the street at the Emporium. As seen by a sign on the window in the front of the store, Osh Popham is the owner and operator. The sign reads “Osh Popham – Proprietor.” There is also a date behind it that says the Emporium was established in 1863. Osh Popham is based on a shopkeeper played by Burl Ives in the 1963 Disney film “Summer Magic”. Osh decorated his store with elegance and charm, such as stained glass signs, wood carvings, and ornate ceilings.
  9. Osh kept up with the changing times. He had his store’s expansions wired for electricity. Due to the unreliability of the new technology, Osh had custom chandeliers designed to also support gas lights. The electric lamps point downwards and the gas fixtures up.
  10. Osh’s business was booming so he decided to expand his shop. He bought a portion of Center Street. His latest expansion debuted in 1901 (as seen by a date above a doorframe) and was called the Emporium Gallery. It was a turn of the century expansion… 1901 in the backstory and 2001 in real life when the Emporium actually expanded.
  11. On the back wall of the Emporium Gallery there is a large mural displaying Osh’s happy customers and employees enjoying their shopping experience.
  12. There is a hat shop in the far right corner of Town Square, called the Chapeau Shop. Go to the back of the store to find a hand-crank telephone. Pick it up and hear a conversation.
  13. As you are walking down Main Street, just as you pass the Uptown Jewelry Store on the right side down Center Street. You will hear the sounds of tap dancing along with the voice of an instructor, and the sound of someone singing coming from open second story windows named “Singing Lessons” and “School of Dance”.
  14. Find Lady and the Tramp’s paw prints in front of the stairs at Tony’s Town Square.
  15. On the left side of Main Street there is a door next to the Fashion and Apparel store. It reads “Open Since ’71 – Magic Kingdom Casting Agency – ‘It Takes People to Make the Dream a Reality’ – Walter Elias Disney – Founder and Director Emeritus.” This is a tribute to all the cast members at Walt Disney World. ’71 is obviously a reference to Magic Kingdom’s opening year.
  16. Another reference to Magic Kingdom’s opening year can be found on the Main Street Fire Station: “Engine Co. 71.”
  17. The windows on Main Street are legendary. They’re the highest honor one can receive in the company. Here’s a few and where to find them:
    • Center Street – Painting & Sculpture – Herbert Ryman, Blaine Gibson, Mary Blair. Mary Blair designed It’s a Small World and painted the giant mural in the Grand Concourse at the Contemporary Resort. Blaine Gibson created the Partner’s Statue and the singing busts in the Haunted Mansion. Herb Ryman drew the first ever illustration of Disneyland with Walt.
    • Broggie’s Buggies – Roger Broggie, Wheelwright (on the corner of the Fire Station and the Emporium). Broggie oversaw the development of Audio-Animatronics, the Monorail, the PeopleMover, and the Omnimover system.
    • Big Top Theatrical – Claude Coats, Marc Davis, Bill Justice (above the Main Street Athletic Club). Claude Coats was an Imagineer who designed sets for attractions like Haunted Mansion and Pirates. Marc Davis was one of Walt’s “Nine Old Men” and designed characters and scenes for the Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room, the Adventureland Tiki Statues, Carousel of Progress, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, and Country Bears. Bill Justice programmed audio-animatronics for classic attractions.
    • Walter E. Disney – Graduate School of Design & Master Planning – Instructors, Marvin Davis, - Headmaster, Richard Irvine – Dean of Design, John Hench (above the Plaza Restaurant). These Imagineers are some of the most important in the history of the company. Richard Irvine helped construct Disneyland and was the master planner for Disney World after Walt died. John Hench was a legendary Imagineer who helped master plan Walt Disney World and Disneyland as well. He designed Tomorrowland, Space Mountain, Spaceship Earth, as well as contributed to the designs of Main Street, Cinderella Castle, EPCOT Center, Adventureland, and Carousel of Progress. Marvin Davis arranged the layout of Disneyland with Walt, drew the blueprint for Disney World, helped design the Polynesian, as well as the exterior of the Haunted Mansion and some Main Street buildings.
    • The Musical Quill – Lyrics and Librettos by X. Atencio (above the Confectionery). X Atencio wrote the lyrics for “Yo Ho (A Pirates Life for Me)” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts” as well as the script for Pirates of the Caribbean.
    • The Camelot Core—Road Show Installations—Tony Baxter (above the Crystal Palace but not 100% sure). Tony Baxter is a legendary Imagineer who designed Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Journey into Imagination, and Star Tours.
    • “If We Can Dream It – We Can Do It!” – Roy O. Disney – Dreamers & Doers Development Co. (above the Main Street Confectionery).
    • Buena Vista Magic Lantern Slides – Treat Your Friends To Our Special Tricks - Yale Gracey (above the Confectionery). Yale Gracey was the master of special effects and lightning, more famously seen in the Haunted Mansion.
    • General Joe’s Building Permits Licensed in Florida Gen. Joe Potter, Raconteur (above the Confectionary). Joe Potter was tapped by Walt to oversee the initial construction of Disney World, including overseeing the transformation of the Florida swamps into underground utilities and other initial infrastructure.
    • The Big Wheel Co. – Horseless Carriages – Bob Gurr (above Main Street Fashion and Appeal). Imagineer Bob Gurr designed ride vehicles including the Monorail and coined the term “Omnimover.”
    • Walt Disney World Railroad Office – Keeping Dreams on Track – Walter E. Disney, Chief Engineer (above the Train Station before entering Magic Kingdom).
  18. Seven Summits Expeditions – Frank G. Wells, President (above Crystal Arts). This is a special one. Frank Wells was the president of the Disney Company in the 80s. He loved mountain climbing and his life’s goal was to clime all the highest mountains on all the continents. He came close, getting six of the seven, but he died in a helicopter accident. His window honors his seven summits expedition and is the highest window on all of Main Street.
  19. There’s a couple Main Street windows that reference the process of finding and buying the land for Disney’s Florida project:
    • Pseudonym Real Estate Dev. Co. – Roy Davis President (Center Street to the right). Roy Davis was Roy Disney’s fake name – or pseudonym – when visiting Florida in secret to look for locations for their new park.
    • M.T. Lott Co. Real Estate (above Crystal Arts). M.T. Lotts was one of Walt’s dummy corporations used to buy Florida land in secret so people wouldn’t know Walt was buying and jack up the prices. Walt’s sense of humor was obvious with the name of this one.
Adventureland:
  1. Imagineers designed the transition from Main Street to Adventureland to be anchored by the Crystal Palace. While on Main Street, it is Victorian turn-of-the-century themed (stained glass, intricate detailing, and well-manicured plantings). When transitioning to Adventureland, it becomes 19th century British rule in Africa themed (stripped green awnings, pane windows and an overgrown and dense landscaping).
  2. Check out the jewels and charms embedded in the pavement around Aladdin’s Flying Carpets and the Adventureland Bazar.
  3. You can find the smallest hidden Mickey on property here, it is on one of the medallions in the ground.
  4. Explore the details of the Adventureland Bazar, including little things like crossed swords on the wall and the appropriately themed ceilings for each different themed store.
  5. In Pirates of the Caribbean queue on the right side there is a dungeon cell window where you can see two skeletons playing chess.
  6. The Jungle Cruise queue has many funny little details. Here’s some of the best ones to look for (I’m not gonna spoil the actual jokes since they aren’t funny to just read about):
    • Help Wanted on the Amazon River Base
    • Missing Persons and Missing Boats
    • Free Kittens sign
    • Mess Hall menu
    • Live Cargo Holding Area
    • Employee of the Month
    • Spider in the cage
    • Gorilla cage
  7. Keep your ears open for Albert Awol, the Voice of the Jungle. This is the radio show that Skippers listen to on their trips. There are many funny jokes, puns, and examples of Skipper incompetence to be heard.
  8. For Adventurer’s Club fans, a tag for Pamela Perkins, who was the club’s president, can be found inside a wire cage at the start of the queue.
  9. Some of the crates around the ride have funny warnings and notices. There are also tributes to Imagineers such as the Evans Exotic Plant Exporters (tribute to Bill Evans who landscaped the Jungle Cruise) and Goff Brand crates (tribute to Harper Goff who invented the Jungle Cruise with Walt).
  10. Skipper’s Canteen, the restaurant based on the Jungle Cruise, is full of great details. The backstory is that it’s owned and operated by Alberta Falls, granddaughter of Dr. Albert Falls. Dr. Falls established the Jungle Navigation Company, the company behind the Jungle Cruise. Dr. Falls was a member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, or S.E.A., and this secret group used to hang out at the Adventurer’s Club. There is a picture of Alberta and Albert in the waiting room.
  11. Once inside, look up to the second floor to see three office doors each honoring an Imagineer with a connection to the Jungle Cruise: Bill Evans, who was in charge of landscaping Adventureland and the Jungle Cruise. Marc Davis, who created many of the attraction’s famous scenes like the Elephants bath the rhino attack. Harper Goff, the art director of the ride who worked with Walt to create the original concept of the attraction.
  12. The main dining room is the Crew Mess Hall. Notice the Backside of Water crate, a reference to the classic joke from the Jungle Cruise.
  13. There are also Christmas decorations on a shelf in the Mess Hall, a reference to the Jingle Cruise overlay during the holidays.
  14. Check out the library. There are many great titles such as:
    • Songs of the Tiki Bird by Prof Boag, a reference to is Wally Boag, a Disney Legend who voices Jose in the Enchanted Tiki Room.
    • Native Orange Birds of the Southeastern United States by Dr. Sid Truss.
    • Pirates of the Caribbean by Coats, a reference to Imagineer Claude Coats who helped design Pirates.
    • The Illustrated Guide to Radio Broadcasting was composed by the Skipper behind the Voice of the Jungle you hear in the Jungle Cruise queue, Albert AWOL
    • Boat Evacuation Procedures by Cap. Size.
    • FUZNEWI PDMWH CHF JD U written by Albert the Monkey
    • Crooning Flowers by Sherman and Sherman, a reference to the Sherman Brothers who wrote the “Tiki Room” song (“Where the birds sing words and the flowers croon”)
    • A book by Marty Sklar (legendary Imagineer who was with Walt when he first opened Disneyland and worked on every other Disney park since then. Sadly he died last July.)
    • True Adventures by WED (Walter Elias Disney)
  15. The library also has The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. But look at the angle of it. S.E.A. members would pull the book to open a secret passageway to get to the secret meeting room. Notice the book has been pulled, and you can see that the secret passageway has been opened.
  16. Dr. Falls used to hold meetings in the S.E.A. Secret Meeting Room. You can examine Dr. Fall’s collection of butterflies, ancient artifacts, and a painting of Dr. Falls on the Jungle Cruise.
  17. Going back through the library, there is a display of fezzes from members of the SEA. Some of these were worn by characters of the Adventurer’s Club.
  18. The animals on the roof peaks of the Enchanted Tiki Room look like Asian water buffalos, but they can also be seen in Frontierland where from a distance they resemble longhorn steer. The Imagineers wanted to keep the proper theming for each land, so they made sure the animals would properly themed. A water buffalo would be found in more exotic locations, and the steer found in frontier areas.
Frontierland:
  1. The buildings in Frontierland are designed with historic accuracy in mind. This town takes you through the 1800s. To figure out the exact year that various buildings were modeled after, just look above the door. Town Hall is structurally consistent with buildings from 1867. Pecos Bills is styled after saloons from 1878. Country Bear Jamboree is from 1898.
  2. You can also see civilization starting to creep through Frontierland. The first couple structures of the land are made of wood and logs. But starting with the Trading Post, buildings start to get more permanent and are built with stones and bricks.
  3. Buildings in Frontierland have a raised sidewalk in front of them. This is a historically accurate feature that would be consistent with buildings in the Old West, which would have had dirty and dusty streets. The raised wooden sidewalks were designed to keep boots and skirts clean and away from the dirt of the roads.
  4. Next to Town Hall there is a building that is labeled Chinese Laundry. There was a big Chinese presence in the Old West, and Chinese laundries were a common site.
  5. The light fixtures of the land are themed like old fashion lanterns.
  6. Country Bear Jamboree has claw marks from past visitors on the floor of the waiting room.
  7. A crate near Country Bears says "Davis Tobacco," a tribute to Imagineer Marc Davis who worked on creating the attraction.
  8. In the queue for Big Thunder Mountain you can notice a portrait of the founder of the mine, Barabus T. Bullion. The actual man in the portrait is Tony Baxter, legendary Imagineer who designed Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain.
  9. In the Big Thunder queue you can also find a patent for an automatic train break on the wall dating back to 1877. The patent is attributed to T. Baxter… or Tony Baxter.
  10. You can also find an advertisement for Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Café in the queue. Pecos Bill’s is the famous quick service in Frontierland.
  11. Near the exit of Big Thunder Mountain you can find a crate that has the pun “Lytum and Hyde Explosives Company.”
  12. In Splash Mountain’s loading area, look up and see a Brer Rabbit weather vane.
  13. After exiting Splash and entering the Briar Patch gift shop, look up in the shop to see Brer Rabbit’s home.
  14. When looking at Tom Sawyer Island’s you can see Harper’s Mill, a tribute to Imagineer Harper Goff.
  15. Walk along the bridge going from Liberty Square to Frontierland. When nearing Tom Sawyer’s Island look to the left and you’ll see a little waterfall. This is supposed to represent the start of the Mississippi River and is nicknamed the Little Mississippi. Just as the real Mississippi separates the West from the East, the little one represents the Western-themed Frontierland to the more Eastern-themed Liberty Square.
Liberty Square:
  1. There is a piece of fencing that separates the stroller parking that represents a hitching post for horses, which would have been a common site in Colonial times.
  2. The Liberty Tree is a live oak tree more than 135 years old. There are 13 lanterns that hang from it to represent the 13 original colonies.
  3. Between Sleepy Hollows and Ye Old Christmas Shoppe is a quiet little nook with a couple rocking chair that you can relax in.
  4. On a building near the Hall of Presidents in an upper window there are two lanterns, representing the famous “One if by land, two if by sea.”
  5. The shutters in Liberty Square sag because at the time of the Revolutionary War, colonists melted down hinges sold to them by the British to make shots for their weapons. Leather hinges were used in their place, resulting in the sagging shutters.
  6. There is a brown streak in the Liberty Square walkway. In traditional Revolutionary times no indoor plumbing existed, so people would take their waste and dump it from their windows into the streets outside. The brown pavement represents the sewage in the streets of early America.
  7. The Christmas Shoppe is actually three separate shops owned by three different colonial families, a German family, a woodcarver's family, and a musician's family. You can notice little differences as you pass through each of the three rooms.
  8. Memento Mori, the Haunted Mansion-themed gift shop, has a backstory. It was the home of Madame Leota, the famous ghost of the Mansion, during her earthly years. Many of her belongings are still located in the shop, including a portrait of someone assumed to be Leota back in her “corruptible, mortal state.” Leota’s face appears within the shop’s mirror, looking out at us from her world beyond.
  9. The Haunted Mansion’s queue is loaded with great tributes in the gravestones:
    • “Here Lies Good Old Fred – A Great Big Rock Fell Off His Head.” Fred Joerger was an Imagineer who designed many of the classic rock and mountain formations of Disney World, such as Big Thunder and the Canadian Rockies.
    • “In Memory of Grandpa Marc.” Marc Davis was an Imagineer who created the story and many of the characters for the Haunted Mansion.
    • “Master Gracey Laid to Rest.” Imagineer Yale Gracey was the master of special effects, including the famous Pepper’s Ghost seen frequently in the Haunted Mansion. Cast members will often place a red rose on the tomb to show respect.
    • “First Lady – Our Haunting Harriet.” This tombstone honors the first female Imagineer Harriet Burns.
    • “At Peaceful Rest Lies Brother Claude.” Claude Coats was responsible for designing The Haunted Mansion set and also contributed to the storyline.
    • “Farewell Mister Frees – Your Voice Will Carry.” Paul Frees was a voice actor who performed as the Ghost Host.
    • “A Train Made a Stain of Uncle Blaine.” Blaine Gibson was an Imagineering sculptor who sculpted the singing busts of the Mansion.
    • “Requiescat Francies Xavier.” X (for Xavier) Atencio was an Imagineer who wrote the lyrics for Grim Grinning Ghosts.
  10. The Pipe Organ in the queue has the name “Ravenscroft.” This is a tribute to Thurl Ravenscroft who sings Grim Grinning Ghosts.
  11. In the queue you can see footsteps of the mansion’s caretaker and footsteps of his dog in the cement near the gate. There is also a doggy door in gate.
  12. Make sure you spot the infamous wedding ring in the cement. It’s near the Captain’s crypt closer to the entrance. The backstory is that the original “ring” was actually a leftover piece of support in the cement. But guests created the legend that it belonged to the bride in the Mansion. The area was paved over and passionate Haunted Mansion fans got upset. Imagineers heard their pleas and when the ride was updated with an interactive queue in 2011, the “ring” was brought back and made to look like an actual wedding ring.
  13. Keep your eyes on Madame Leota’s headstone near the entrance. She might just open her eyes and move her head around.
  14. Did you know there is a murder mystery in the Haunted Queue? Check out the five busts in the middle. This thing is insanely detailed, here’s a quick breakdown of it:
    • Uncle Jacob was rich. You can see his treasure as part of his bust. Uncle Jacob was killed for his wealth, as indicated by his epitaph. But who killed him?
    • Uncle Jacob’s epitaph says he swallowed poison. Bertie, another bust, has a bottle of poison on his plaque. Bernie also has a serpent draped on his shoulder, so he was able to get poisonous snake venom to kill Jacob.
    • Aunt Florence (Jacob’s wife) wants revenge, so she shoots Bertie (notice the gun on her plaque). But who killed Florence? The epitaph on her bust says she was found face down in canary seeds. Check out the Twins busts who have a dead bird on their plaque. Now check between the busts of the twins to discover a bag full of bird seeds. So the twins killed Florence. Now who killed the twins? Check their epitaph. They died with “identical bumps on identical heads.” Check out Cousin Maude’s plaque on her bust and notice the hammer on it. She killed the twins with identical bumps on each of their heads.
    • But how did Maude die? Her epitaph says she never awoke and her dreams went up in smoke. This is maybe the best little detail of the whole thing. How did she go “up in smoke”? Check behind her head and notice the matches that Maude was using to keep her hair in place. Apparently they caught fire one night while she was sleeping! Bravo, Imagineers.
  15. A tribute to Mr. Toad, the beloved Fantasyland attraction replaced by Winnie the Pooh, is in the Pet Cemetery after exiting the attraction. Mr. Toad’s gravestone is near the top of the cemetery. There is a rumor that the epitaph on the tomb says “Mr. Toad –Sad But True – Not As Marketable – As Winnie the Pooh.” Imagineers still a little bitter about it.
Fantasyland:
  1. Ever wonder why Fantasyland has a medieval fair theme? When Disneyland first opened many of the Fantasyland attraction façades weren’t finished, so banners and decorative tents were used to cover up the unfinished parts. The theme stuck and was even carried over to Florida.
  2. Continuing with the medieval theme, check out the pink pillars around it’s a small world. They are designed to look like lances.
  3. Behind the castle is a fountain with a statue of Cinderella. Lower your head when facing the statue and the crown from the backdrop now sits perfectly on her head.
  4. Find the hidden Pascals along the brook in the gardens across from Tangled restrooms.
  5. Maximus’s hoof print can also be found in the ground by the Tangled area.
  6. No mirrors in the Rapunzel bathrooms. Hanging up instead are frying pans!
  7. There is actually a Hidden Oswalds the Lucky Rabbit in New Fantasyland. It is formed by three pebbles in the middle of the walkway across from the "Enchanted Tales with Belle" sign and in front of the main walkway to Be Our Guest.
  8. When eating in the Ballroom at Be Our Guest, notice the gentle snowfall that can be seen in the back windows.
  9. At Be Our Guest there are two rows of suits of armor in the hall used for lunchtime quick-service ordering. Listen closely and you might hear them talk to each other. Sometimes one snores and is woken up by another one. They might complain that the armor is itchy or that they need an oil can.
  10. You can’t miss the fountain of Gaston in front of his tavern. But how did it get there? Check out the dedication plaque at the bottom of the statue to see who generously gifted this “tribute” to the village.
  11. In Gaston’s Tavern there is a dart board and a scoreboard. Gaston wins a lot, but he might not be that good actually… at least according to the darts sticking out of the wall.
  12. Check out all the antlers in the Tavern. He really does use them in all of his decorating!
  13. At the DVC sign-up area there is a sign that says “H. Goff – Cartography.” This is a reference to legendary Imagineer Harper Goff was involved in the set design for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the attraction that used to be in this area.
  14. The giant squid from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is found on the weather vane at the Cartography Shop across from the Little Mermaid ride.
  15. In the queue for the Little Mermaid ride when going through the rock formations where the wooden beam is broken, check the carvings of the stones. There is a carving of the Nautilus, which was the submarine used in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
  16. Imagineers bottled up some of the water from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea before it was closed and stored it at their headquarters for 18 years. When the Little Mermaid attraction opened, the bottled water was poured into Ariel’s waters, returning a piece of the past to New Fantasyland
  17. One of the most unique and hardest to find Hidden Mickeys can be found at the exit of the Little Mermaid ride. It is a Hidden Steamboat Willie. Look to the right after exiting the attraction and it is carved into the landscape, composing three or four different rocks. It’s brilliantly hidden. The easiest place to start looking is the wheel to the left (maybe try checking to see if you can spot the spokes on the circular rock), then you can see his nose, face, hat and hand, follow it down and you see his shorts with the buttons and his leg and foot is on the rock in front.
  18. There is another 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea tribute in the queue for the Winnie the Pooh ride. Duck into Pooh’s house in the queue and look above the doorway to see the Nautilus submarine carved into the wood.
  19. The Poor ride replaced Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, which was incredibly popular with Disney fanatics and Imagineers alike. There is a tribute at the Haunted Mansion pet cemetery, but another tribute was added to the second scene of Pooh ride, where you can see a picture of Mr. Toad handing over the deed for the property to Owl.
  20. Vultures that were part of the classic dark ride Snow White’s Scary Adventure can be found overlooking the Seven Dwarves Mine Train.
  21. Look at the pavement of Fantasyland. There are horseshoe marks in ground near Beast’s castle and peanuts embedded in the ground near Dumbo in Storybook Circus.
Tomorrowland:
  1. The current backstory of Tomorrowland is that it is a functional city. Near the entrance you’ll find advertisements for the Tomorrowland hotel and some of the special events taking place in the city. One of them is advertising that Leonard Burnedstar is in town and conducting the Martin Pops Orchestra. He’s performing an “Outer Space Concerto in Ursa Minor.” The puns are so stupid but classic Disney!
  2. You can see the Contemporary Resort from Tomorrowland, but from no other land in Magic Kingdom. Imagineers didn’t want the lands’ themes ruined by non-themed outside factors. Since the Contemporary was built to resemble a futuristic structure, it could blend in with Tomorrowland.
  3. You’ve probably seen the giant black ball in Tomorrowland. That is a kugel ball and it weighs over 13,000 pounds. It’s a granite ball supported by a thin layer of water. It’s a perfect sphere and placed on a base that has the exact same curvature as the ball. Despite its weight, with this exact configuration, the magic of physics takes over and makes it possible for anyone to be move it.
  4. Near the load area for the TTA, there is an intergalactic phone booth. Step inside and pick up the phone to hear some calls from across the galaxy.
  5. You can also read the local newspaper, “The Tomorrowland Times” being sold near Astro Orbiters.
  6. At the Carousel of Progress check out the poster in the front that’s an advertisement for the attraction from the 1964 NY World's Fair. This is where Walt first debuted the attraction. The little sign on the bottom of the poster provides more details.
  7. Space Mountain’s backstory is that it is space travel for tourists. In the queue there is a sign that reads "Welcome Space Travelers - STARPORT SEVEN-FIVE - Your Gateway to the Galaxy." The “SEVEN-FIVE” is a reference to 1975, the year Space Mountain opened.
  8. After exiting the ride you’ll pass a baggage claim area for missing luggage from space travelers.
  9. While on the moving sidewalk after the ride there is a scene for the Tomorrowland Station MK 1 – Command Center, keeping with the story of Space Mountain being one of many stations for space travel. After that there are scenes with television monitors advertising other various exotic places you can travel to, including Mercury Peak and the Coral Moons of Pisces 7.
  10. While on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, listen for the line "Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow, please contact Mr. Johnson in the control tower to confirm your flight to the moon." Mr. Tom Morrow is obviously a play on “Tomorrow”. Mr. Johnson starred in a past attraction Mission to Mars. This line also pays tribute to another past Tomorrowland attraction Flight to the Moon.
  11. Also on the TTA you’ll also see a futuristic beauty salon, keeping with the story that Tomorrowland is a functioning city.
  12. Finally, and this isn’t even a secret detail but it’s worth mentioning, while on the TTA don’t forget to check out the model of Walt’s vision of Progress City, the original concept model for EPCOT.

2017.10.13 22:06 911bodysnatchers322 Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 178: "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatlne]

  • Day 354.1. Did Debbie Have a Place in Jackson Heights, NY? - YouTube
    • This is Day 354 and this is going to be Monday inquiry
    • The reason why I say inquiry is I'm not going to make any statements
    • So this isn't speculation of any kind I'll turn that off this isn't conjecture
    • I'm just inquiring for leads
    • And the way an investigation moves forward is you have a working theory you make inquiries
    • You go visit places and that's how it works I think everybody's seen CSI
    • So I want to clearly distinguish that this is inquiry, not something that I am speculating
    • So this is Monday inquiry
    • And I know I should have had metadata Monday would have sounded better
    • We might go to metadata Monday some day but this is Monday inquiry
    • And what I'm gonna inquire about now is these addresses that we got for Imran Awan
    • It turned out that he had a Jackson Heights address that came out at the trial some we quickly located that two at Mohammed a Awan, an alias he used in Jackson Heights
    • And we mapped it to a location
    • Of course then the contributors in the crowd immediately looked at other locations around that spot, which were Awan businesses
    • There's a one production company Awan studios all these different Awan potentially cutouts--the CIA type cutouts, but maybe not
    • Maybe places to have drug parties and get people hooked on your drugs, maybe not
    • That's why it's called Monday inquiry
    • So the place in question is this place in Jackson Heights here it is the William Penn Apartments we get you were introduced to them yesterday
    • And there was this identity here which was Mohammed A Awan, which is the same age as Imran Awan
    • And he had some of the same people that he knew this Nawaz...so some of the people were similar
    • But I speculated or inquired as it may be that this was just a cutout in Washington and a cutout in in New York
    • So that's somebody anybody coming in from Pakistan to fulfill any role in any kind of cutout business could just step in a the identity of Muhammad A Awan
    • So if you could you could have eight programmers with different variations of Mohammed Awan, that were just using those different identities while they were here on projects for instance
    • If they were doing projects that intercepted on the pay-to-play server, over here in Brooklyn
    • So that's the idea--that these are this is just a cutout-name that you can keep inserting people and rotating people through and-- it's a gift that keeps on giving over and over again
    • And that way you can bring in lots of people on just one thing name
    • Now of course people immediately geo-located to other places near where that was
    • And here comes this future tech diagnostic--I don't know what they do yet I haven't had time to research it
    • Future tech diagnostic at this 7702 34th Avenue apartment B11
    • Almost like-- vitamin B11 right which is on people noted as an unusual apartment number
    • So if you look at 7702 34th Avenue in Jackson Heights and you compare that back to the address down here, which is going to be 35th I believe, excuse me over here 35th Avenue, it's believed right across the street
    • So you think well Jordan: why would you pick out that address?
    • Well it turns out--now I don't know if this is true, but there's this Awan Studios right here down here
    • And this is some of the pictures here
    • Now this is the perfect place for a pink cocaine party
    • I know everybody's saying that
    • But the most interesting thing is that some people are saying that it maps to an address that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had in 2008
    • Now if that is true, that is significant.
    • Because obviously if there's strong connection between Imran Awan and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
    • So that's something that we need to check
    • 7702 34th Avenue apartment B11 Jackson Heights
    • We'll see
    • That's what it's all about that's why it's called Monday inquiry
    • We're not making a statement that says she lived there we're not making a statement that says Imran Awan's connected with this club
    • There's also Imran Awan or Awan brothers productions I believe a film company is still don't have the address of that right
    • Now but just looking into all these connections of potential cutouts in Jackson Heights
    • There's also this it's almost I but I posted on Twitter
    • It's almost a script like Friends it reads almost like friends: just change all the names to all the conspirators in our thing-- you can see--RAO Speedwagon Abbas on the couch, never wanting to leave, always asking for food,
    • That's like a little sitcom, and it's called Jackson Heights, and it's about this well it's just all of our characters pretty much I mean if you look at the character sketches it's written around the people in our conspiracy
    • So it's really quite uncanny
    • If you can look on Twitter for that
    • Now here is the really amazing thing that happened this morning:
    • This is an incredible speculation, not it's not speculation this is inquiry
    • But if this turns out to be true, even I it stretches my imagination for what could possibly be going on here
    • But the theory is the theory is...is that these pink cocaine parties are being and run in four major cities, maybe more
    • Houston, Chicago, New York, and Florida
    • {{ 911bs: George: these are cities with the highest incidences of HIV infection in US, Houston being very notable, unusual high rate as outlier }}
    • And the team if you will that's running them and possibly also DC the team that's running them for the UAE and for the princes and...of the UAE is this Jaquaya's team or a team like Jaquaya in Fairfax County the Robertson team
    • Now there's the Robinson we talked about yesterday Dwayne Robinson Robertson who was the person who radicalized Mateen before we had the 50 people killed and in Orlando
    • It was that cover killing for the prostitution ring--a gay prostitution ring in Orlando--who knows?
    • But it it could be it could be that this laptop was given to Jaquaya, to go to these different parties, to set up these different parties using Craigslist
    • And a Jaquaya-like person let's say a JTTF operation, which runs pink these pink cocaine parties at these major hotels
    • Now the tie-in here--the person who saw this--the tie-in is the connect kanika murder or the kanika death of the girl going into the freezer in Chicago
    • Now the contributors' working theory is that this person who invited her to the party kanika to the party--his name's Shaniqua Shaniqua boy I'm forgetting the names but I know what Shaniqua begins the last name begins with a w
    • Anyway there is five pictures this person was convicted five times and the last three arrests of this person I believe it's Shaniqua Winters but I know that's gonna be wrong
    • The last five arrests of the last three arrests it said not specified
    • That is the hallmark when you see not specified that is the hallmark of JTTF coming in
    • Calling the local prosecutor calling local DA and saying "hey she's a part of a JTTF op where the joint terrorists task force--we terrorize America, make that non-specified"
    • So she had that JTTF signature on her rap sheet
    • Now I don't know if that's her
    • May was well just get it now because
    • So if I mean it could be the loretta Hendricks <
  • Day 354.2. Monday Inquiry Fun - Awan Bros Film, Awan Studios, and Student Visas - YouTube
    • This is Day 354 part 2
    • And sorry that video keeps getting cut off when I start talking about JTTF I am NOT doing that I don't know what's happening
    • But anyway I saw an interesting comment of the last video about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz having these addresses up in in Jackson Heights and part of New York here, as well as some some other ones may even Hina Alvi now
    • But this caught my eye this is a Pakistani music television show called Coke Studio and it's about three Pakistanis living in New York
    • So I just thought that was an interesting interesting show
    • And then there's a whole bunch of references here to getting visas for people bringing in visas and this reminded me so much of the person I went through Canada studying this visa thing
    • She had obviously been close to a person who had was suspected of was on the international terrorism watch list ended up not only getting a visa to the United States but also a passport to the United States by going and saying he was a student at a fairly older age I think thirty eight or nine of the New York Film Academy
    • So it definitely seems like this Schumer Wasserman Clinton--passport, visa and passport turnstile
    • And then adding to that they're putting them in they're using a most cheap labor putting them into these different businesses and then they have the hammer of deportation over them
    • So it's just kind of interesting it's and it also could be money laundering in the sense that when you have a lot of money you put it into a bank and the bank re-loans it out to somebody else and now you've laundered the money
    • So I just thought this was an interesting set of interesting common with a lot of specific references to a lot of different documents
    • I don't have time to do both all the drill-down on this but--there's lots of pointers going to this ace software solutions in Queens Village, New York
    • And I think this is also Jackson Heights as well
    • We talked about the studio that they had the Awan Studio I think that's coming up here
    • Rhere's here's a Schenectady address for visas and documents which is close to more upstate New York by Albany where the the Attorney General is
    • And just some different addresses here with people's-- contributing money from Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC and then saying their employer is up here named Mohammed Awan on five five five Bartlett Street apartment 322
    • I don't know if that Jackson Heights or not that's from the Federal Elections Commission
    • And then there's student visa type applications where you say "ok I want to bring this person Hina Alvi in and this Nalya Hyatt and they're gonna do a certain project
    • And that's how you do and I believe how you do an h-1b visa and it was for the National Institute of healthier NCBI and I forgot what NCBI does
    • I don't want to say infectious diseases but I know that's wrong
    • Anyway I wanted to do a quick follow-up because this is the kind of thing I was talking about with metadata
    • These addresses lead somewhere they're not saying my employers Mohammed Awan five five five Bartlett Street apartment 322 Jackson Heights from somebody working down in Pennsylvania Avenue
    • It just I don't know why that just makes it seems like if you're on Pennsylvania Avenue you're not a software engineer but maybe you are a software engineer
    • Maybe you're working on NGP van or some-- game or or something
    • But it just it seemed like it was worth drill down and I know there's people out there that can look this stuff up
    • This is the comments from the video one this morning
    • So I'm gonna just leave it there as kind of like a video appendix to video one
    • This is part two and let people look into this and I'll report later on what we found
  • Day 354.3 7702 34th Avenue Jackson Heights, NY. DHS Programmers, and TSA? You Decide - YouTube
    • It's day 354 and I'm here in Jackson Heights behind me is 7702
    • Not talking about any one apartment so obviously no foul there
    • This reminds me with this this playground across it reminds me of that the Lower East Side neighborhood with Lucky Luciano, with the oranges
    • I'm just saying, if you remember that episode: if you go down that way I got off this Grand Central Station took the seven, I went ten stops to 74th Street, and I walked up 77th Street right there, about a half a mile to get here
    • So this is pretty good access--it's also the stop for LaGuardia Airport
    • So that made me think Joe Crowley. Joe Crowley. Joe Crowley
    • But all of a sudden I mean I just I get overwhelmed with the idea of programmers--I just felt like there was programmers--I felt like there was DHS programmers here
    • I don't know why. I maybe it's people that are working in TSA out at LaGuardia that could be
    • But I'll I was overwhelmed with the sensation of DHS programmers
    • Michael Chertoff's DHS programmers don't know what just instinctive
    • But I'm gonna walk up to 80th Street
    • Now I'm on 77th we do up to 80th which is only two blocks away we're gonna be at 79th here in a second
    • And there's kind of a nice little streets kind of blocked off on 80th there
    • And I'm going to the house that I've got several reports that says Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had a place here
    • Now I don't think that actually would have been Debbie Wasserman Schultz's place, but maybe she wants to go yachting with on the boat--top secret out in Flushing Meadows
    • The marina there, where I think it's where the World's Fair used to be the Flushing Meadows marina
    • But anyway Joe Crowley I think goes out on the boat with--is it the guy who Wackenhut?
    • Is it the guy from old Wackenhut days no Wackenhut if you don't know Wacken that most people know Wackenhut because it's a funny name from the-- security services of major government buildings
    • And a lot of people say G4S became Wackenhut
    • It was just renamed but for those people who don't know Wackenhut
    • I believe the original wagon got an original idea of hiring gangs as a security service, well anyway Al Capone's first iteration in trying to hire gangs as a security service--basically a private police force masquerading as a security service--was in Florida
    • I believe that's where Wackenhut started
    • And then Wackenhut got renamed
    • I don't know if the it's a fake name and it was really whackin meaning your victims
    • But some people say oh no the Pinkertons way before that with Rockefeller the Rockefeller was going for oil and I think Al Capone was going for something different
    • But here we are an eightieth and we don't have far to go we don't have far to go
    • So anyway I'll tune back in when we get there
    • This is where I think Imran really lived on eightieth
    • 3732 we're not going there to intimidate anyone
  • Day 354.4. Imran Intercepting GSA Bids? Underground Railroad of Bids From DC to NYC? - YouTube
    • Day 354 this is about the GSA and and potentially what could be happening at what I am now calling the passport and visa apartments at 7702 in Jackson Heights 7702 35th Street
    • Now I'm not saying I looked at the PDF file of all the visas that have come through and all the h-1b visas
    • Now this is the this is the train between Washington, the Underground Railroad that's between Washington DC and New York
    • If you can get the bids from Washington DC for GSA across the board
    • Across 30 or 40 different Federal agencies and I can Underground Railroad them up here to New York
    • And I'm going to hear that truth train coming that truth trains are coming
    • Then I can intercept I can intercept
    • So imagine those are packets of information each one of them each one of those is a bid--a Federal bid a GSA bid each car is a bid
    • Well I can look inside each car and see what the bid is and then say do I have a software or hardware solution that I can underbid, by even one or one or two dollars and by Federal government you have to go with the lowest bidder
    • So if I'm in GSA where I can get those bids and understand everything that's on the line-item
    • If it's a software bid I can bring in folks that are cheaper from overseas
    • I've got the visa power over them I can send them back any time h-1b
    • I can get a get a much lower cost structure
    • And then have more profit for myself and that's the pay to play
    • Now is that what Eric Braverman was talking about with pay to play? I don't know
    • The same thing is true for hardware as it is for software is that what that a software company is at 77 or the one that people identified it on 35th Street? Right across the street from 34th Street?
    • Is that that for software is that what they're doing on software I don't know
    • Hardware is the same thing no a little bit more complicated if I have something like a stingray or something for law enforcement I can send that box a broken one or whatever to Pakistan
    • And have it reverse engineered and then bring it back and start a company here on my own company
    • Frank Giustra partners right and just for my friends pay-to-play?
    • Is that what Eric Braverman was talking about with pay to play? We really don't know
    • But those are the possibilities when you start seeing people being brought in on h-1b visas that are undercutting GSA contracts and GSA's bids it just kind of all congeals together
    • So that's what we're looking into here on rainy day Monday rainy rainy Monday here on the Hudson
  • Day 354.5. I Don't Think Debbie Used the Townhouse Much, But I Think Imran Might Have - YouTube
  • Okay so here we are on 8th 80th Street this 37:32 is here but this one over here is very nice decorated all nice for the Halloween season
  • So Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is a public figure
  • So I'm on a public street
  • I'm not intimidating--she's a news figure
  • So I have every--as a journalist I have to do the story where she lives
  • I can't do the story where I live--who cares about that
  • So anyway it's my takeaway--I saw this magnet school this Joseph Pulitzer magnet school that was really close to the other location
  • And it just reminded me so much of every city I've been in where this poor immigrant families are coming in with businesses like this
  • Convenience businesses or or just any kind of like--low-end cutout type businesses
  • And they want better for their children they want their children to go to that magnet school telecommunications in programming school
  • Joseph Pulitzer school and it's right across the street and this is the the Gulen thing all over
  • Again, Gulen this is the whole system which is I'm gonna have you do my nasty stuff through these cutout stores but I'll promise you your kids will have a better life than you did
  • And they'll be successful in the new and the new country and that I really believe is what's going on
  • Day 354.6. Luke Rosiak on Fox Tonight? - Some SAR Reports Questions - YouTube
    • Day 354 here at Fox
    • We've got the ticker board right there there's--the zipper
    • You can see the studio up there down here
    • We've got Sean Hannity tonight it's going to have Luke Rosiak from The Daily Caller
    • Luke Rosiak just by looking at the metadata of his articles you can see who his sources are that are good and who his sources are that are a little shaky
    • The source he has at Capitol Police as well as the Fairfax County pretty good pretty good right on the money--they keep leaking little parts of all the different police reports
    • The house report the IG report the CDW report all those basically come from Capitol Police right--the John Wilkes phone booth etc
    • Where it gets a little shaky as his other contact I believe that other contact is actually Omar Awan
    • And we get funny names like champagne Cristal champagne Charisse Peppingion
    • I don't know maybe not a real name
    • Gilani we get Kalani a lot of Gilani I don't know all the people we haven't seen pictures of those are where I think Luke has a little trouble with his sources
    • But hey Who am I to talk I am a little more out there and working theory than he is
    • Done a great job Luke I think you're doing great
    • The key tonight to watch will be metadata metadata metadata on the suspicious activity reports
    • It's kind of like that movie office space with the TPS reports this case has
    • Now come down to the SAR reports did you get those SAR reports? Hey Congress did you get those SAR reports?
    • Because that's going to tell the story hundreds and hundreds of pages of transfers probably from the Congressional credit union in Rayburn of the three different or the four different places yet the credit union may have been that may have been the four laptops
    • We still don't know it could have put a laptop in each one of those locations, taking data off
    • We still don't know, but the key is that they would have had to do those transfers probably during business hours or during a settlement period right at the end of the day
    • So that's why Imran is caught at 8 o'clock, potentially, in the Rayburn office building in though John Wilkes phone booth
    • Now what else do we know about the credit union and that building is straight down?
    • Now I don't know if it's directly below that John Wilkes phone booth or not
    • Rhere's a set of bathrooms that go down there that means piping maybe that's how they got the wire down, maybe it's still the high voltage room we don't know
    • But again, these are all things that can be checked with public public in for an open source information exactly where the credit union is on the Rayburn office building the Rayburn office buildings are the biggest one the one with a C and then it looks like an O and then another C
    • So it kind of likes two C's welded together and then it's an inner courtyard
    • So people can start looking at that if you figure out
    • If you get a sample suspicious activity report a sample saw report right TPS reports
    • Again, right no you're gonna have to work the weekend that guy a Bob yeah
    • So if you get a sample report and see from the FBI it's about I think about three pages per illegal login
    • So all Luke has to say is the number--all Luke has to say tonight is all Sean Hannity has to ask is how many pages of suspicious activity reports Luke
    • Not giving away anything all he has to do is say three hundred and forty one
    • And you could do the math you can see how many illegal transfers there's been
    • All he has to do is say drill down from hundreds and hundreds and get to the number of SAR pages that the FBI has given
    • That forces everyone to come up with an explanation that forces Gowen to come up with an explanation of "hey what are these hundreds and hundreds?"
    • "Are they total amount transfer" would be good
    • You can say bigger than a battleship-- you can play around with the dates-- bigger than a mansion would cost play around with don't but make sure you get an amount along with the number of transfers
    • It's not $100 a month it's not $100 a month thing for all the time he's been in Congress
    • I'm gonna guarantee you I'm saying it's over 25 million
    • If Sean Hannity just asked that question do your sources tell you if it's over a 25 million Luke or under 25 million
    • Can I ask you a yes-or-no question yes or no over 25 million in transfers from the Congressional credit union in Rayburn or under?
  • Day 355.2. Checking In On RAO Speedwagon Abbas - YouTube
    • Day three double five three double five it's gonna be three triple five pretty soon
    • No, just kidding. Or triple fives triple fives--like that email that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz uses the faier five five five to send up here to five five five Bryant Street in Brooklyn from five five five talking to her brother over at the office of the Attorney General
    • And there's a couple more triple fives in this whole loop
    • Oh yeah there was the two five five five Pennsylvania this this Patricia person that's sending all this money
    • So anyway that came out at yesterday's stuff
    • I was here last night talking about my bro: we're all good it turned out to be somebody else's video that had cut it up and made it look goofy
    • So we're good
    • I just told her I am revoking my permission of all my videos to any other person who have given it to as of now
    • You need to take down any videos of mine including anything referencing my brother
    • So I'm just announcing that
    • So the the next thing is really RAO Speedwagon Abbas RAO Speedwagon Abbas
    • RAO Speedwagon Abbas still is logging into the Congressional server we think we think every hour the Congressional server the caucus server
    • RAO Speedwagon Abbas might never have been vetted
    • Or he if RAO Speedwagon Abbas was vetted, he was vetted by Imran Awan
    • Not a good situation
    • So I have taken it upon myself to do a little additional vetting of RAO Speedwagon Abbas
    • I'm gonna go to Baltimore right now
    • We're gonna go look at Johns Hopkins University we're gonna look at see
    • It's funny how Imran and RAO Speedwagon Abbas and also a Keith Muhammad Atif all graduated together
    • All those aids clustered together it was all the way over in the right hand column of that page of that PDF file
    • I'm not saying it's not a real PDF file
    • But for some reason RAO Speedwagon Abbas use the name Imran Abbas
    • Now if my name was RAO Speedwagon Abbas I would say RAO Speedwagon Abbas graduated on this day from from--from Johns Hopkins
    • I wouldn't I wouldn't be afraid
    • I wouldn't be ashamed of my middle name as Speedwagon I'd be a and it's kind of like someone's like REO Speedwagon Abbas
    • So gonna go check on RAO Speedwagon Abbas he would certainly be on the cricket team he would certainly be in the yearbook he would certainly have a maybe a few tickets in the area he certainly would have a lot of pictures of selfies because it wasn't that long ago he certainly would be sending stuff to friends
    • So let's do a little drill down on REO Speedwagon Abbas
    • And if we want to do muhammad oughtta as well
    • They've got something going on here Times Square portal you can go into a time portal here in Times Square look go through a time bar let's go over to the time portal this could be exciting
    • Weekly themes. Ok. Step inside. Oh you get to talk to people all around the world. You get to talk to people all around the world. Here's here's all the places you can talk to
    • So let's see who do we need to talk to you for the pay to play?
    • Let's see we could talk to Gaza Palestine herbal Iraq Amman Jordan
    • We could find some Stinger missiles there in Amman Jordan
    • Iran we could find some gold for oil Ariel Gulf oil loophole there
    • Mumbai India we can threaten some of the customs officials their way and explode different customs offices if we can't get our contraband through
    • That's fun that's fun.
    • We can even check in on some of our Shinkolobwe uranium that's been stolen from our country down here and kill gallery Rwanda
    • Anyway let's check out RAO Speedwagon Abbas--if he's gonna be logging into our Congressional servers once an hour, I think somebody--I'm not Mike McMahan--but somebody's got to check in on RAO Speedwagon Abbas
  • Day 355.3. Looking For the Three Amigos in Baltimore, MD - YouTube
    • Day 355--this is part three

  • Day 355.4. I Guess I Was Right About Inter-America and Syed Pir Mohammed Shah - YouTube
    • OK Day 355 a lot of stuff just came out in the Congressional hearings with Luke Rosiak
    • It was nice to see representative King representative Jordan representative DeSantis and of course Louis Gomer
    • Have a have some time with Judicial Watch
    • And Luke Rosiak who's done fine fine fine reporting on this topic
    • And then Pat Sowers
    • I love the Masonic ring Pat
    • So anyway I'm sorry but Pat you shouldn't have been on that panel
    • Or you should have stepped up and told the truth
    • And said look here's the deal
    • But anyway I'm getting away from myself here
    • A couple of things--Luke mentioned all these wild internet people there's wild wild speculators on the Internet
    • Yeah they mentioned like there's the suspicious activity reports where people are sending money to Pakistan--
    • When I said it was this guy pure Mohammad Shah was a member of PSP which is the Punjab police force about April 15th
    • So--about four or five months ago
    • And oh by the way it turns out it is actually he did confirm today Luke did confirm that the money transfers from Imran Awan were to Pakistani police
    • And he hasn't even said the name Pir Mohammed Shah yet
    • SYED PIR MOHAMMED SHAH is who it's going to be
    • {{ 911bs: Limited hangout Luke, Freemason steamvalve Luke }}
    • The other thing I've been saying for about four or five months now is that Imran Awan started working in Congress in 2000 not 2004 like it had been widely reported
    • I said the company was Inter-America
    • I said my source was deep blackberry
    • I'm all by the way I'm in Johns Hopkins University's close by
    • The medical center's close by
    • MEDSTAR's close by
    • MOLLY MCCAULEY is close by
    • RESOURCES FOR THE FUTURE is close by all those good things
    • So anyway that's why I'm in Baltimore but I just wanted to say that--inner america turns out he did work it in our american in the year 2000
    • Now the part that hasn't come out yet is that it's Anthony Wiener is the sponsor
    • And it's gonna be in New York, before he goes to Florida before he goes to Florida
    • That's some part of the reason I went to New York this weekend is to a little of that background
    • So Luke, I'm disappointed in a way, because there's three things:
    • The crushed hard drives no mention of that--who provided that
    • The twenty blackberry still hasn't come out
    • By the way that I'm gonna be right on that one again
    • If the story's come in my direction why do people build all these sand castles on falsehoods the story is coming in my direction the story is coming in the direction of the truth
    • But Luke you say people are wild on the internet but then you confirm exactly what I said
    • So and you're still not as far along as I am and I have reported four months ago
    • {{ 911bs: Limited Hangout Luke with the slow drip drip drip syphillitic reportage }}
    • It's Anthony Weiner in our American my Kepner Anthony Weiner
    • Inter-America
    • But he did confirm that it was in her American mm and you're way ahead of everybody else
    • So I appreciate that I appreciate you reporting it was Pakistani police that Imran was sending the money to
    • I just want you to say Syed Pir Mohammed Shah and just-- to round that off we're we are making progress and I want to say thank you
    • {{ 911bs: I don't understand why Luke Rosiak is now some kind of gold standard of reportage. I don't accept that. I think this kind of drip drip drip reportage is actually limited hangout because it's goal is to delay the truth until it's irrelevant and the bad guys win }}
    • Now to Luke for laying the foundation and laying in that-- the fact that i've been saying for months that-- Imran has been in Pakistan for three or four months at a time thank you for laying that foundation with the representatives today
    • The drop box has been going to people in Pakistan that programming teams are in Pakistan
    • This is a concerted effort to win programming business in Pakistan for these programming teams
    • All those things--you laid the foundation well Luke and I want to thank you for those things
    • I still have a little bit of a problem not recognizing me for the crushed hard drives and being right all the time
    • That's what I hate about this it's like all of a sudden I'm a wild internet guy
    • But I'm right all the time and you're still not to where I am but that's
    • I love you to death Luke, keep reporting and we'll go from there
  • Day 356.2. Cristal Blue Persuasion? CACI Contrator to GSA? - YouTube
  • Day 355 part 2, here at beautiful Johns Hopkins University up there is the library where I shot those photos of the Abbasses
  • Well I didn't actually see Rahu Abbas in the yearbook from 2000 let's say 2000 to 2006 I put all those out on the internet
  • So maybe they're out there maybe Rao Speedwagon abbas RAO
  • Speedwagon Abbas has a picture somewhere of him being on this campus as some fun activity that he did
  • I just went to the library I shot the photos of the books--I put them out there
  • I didn't see any Imran either and I didn't see any Atif either
  • So those guys have any pictures whatsoever about their days in college here at Johns Hopkins University I would love to see it
  • Now there is someone though there is someone though who went to school here a lot! A whole lot
  • Some people say she went here 16 years
  • I mean she's got every degree in imaginable
  • Now guess who that is? Guess who went here 16 years? Johns Hopkins University guess who went here 16 years?
  • She needs more names she needs more names as of today because anybody who goes to school that long needs more names
  • It was I just had called her Cristal champagne remember Cristal champagne Charisse Peppingion
  • But this woman this woman this attorney making two hundred thirty thousand dollars a year at FDIC is so persuasive to me such a persuasive person
  • She now is she now is crystal blue persuasion remember crystal blue persuasion the song Cristal blues persuasion she's
  • Now Crystal Blue Persuasion Champagne Sharise Peppingion {{ WTF }}
  • Now I'm gonna question the key question is did crystal blue persuasion pepperoni champagne all those--was she a tutor for Rao Abbas?
  • Was he was here was she a tutor for them we see a tutor for Imran Awan was she a tutor for Atif?
  • Was she a tutor for anyone else, who ended up doing programming for her husband at CACI C A C I
  • It's easy to say CACI CACI is a key defense contractor key defense contractor
  • And it just so happens her husband Sloan and I don't know exactly what his first name is I think it's Richard
  • But we'll see is the key Software Architect at CACI
  • Now remember Crystal blue persuasion Champaign Pepperoni Charisse Pippin Peregrin Took is living in the top of that Lynette house three houses away
  • Three houses away from Imran Awan where he has the server the big server three houses away
  • And remember I did the surveillance and there's all the track marks between the two houses
  • Now I'm not saying there were between those two houses but there was a lot of track marks between that Lynette house
  • It'll almost look like a dog track--it's like it with a lot of traffic to me that Lynette house and that Hawkshead house
  • Now crystal-blue persuasion Charisse Peppin Yawn champagne is living over there, and Imran's living a couple of houses away
  • And Rao Abbas is in the basement Rao Abbas is in the basement
  • So my question today is did Imran do any contracts?
  • Did he do any GSA contracts by any chance?
  • Did you work on any projects for kaki CACI?
  • Would he have used those contacts and connections to develop programming teams in Pakistan?
  • What do you have used a drop box to drop code and so forth bids gsa bids two teams in Pakistan
  • Would imran could have actually taken advantage of crystal-blue persuasion Champaign Pepin young Charisse could have taken advantage and hacked her computer
  • Or hacked her husband's computer to get in and get bids for the for Pakistan ISI?
  • We don't know!
  • Pakistan 111 we don't know
  • But we do know something--as the Bell Tolls here and Johns Hopkins University--that crystal-blue persuasion Charisse champagne Peppa Ellen may have gone here a long time, like 18 years

  • A lot of people are already going oh I see how it's gonna end
  • Molly McCauley just lives right down here the gal who was murdered--resources for the future big NASA scientists--that's a satellite piece
  • Guess who ended up developing GPS?
  • Johns Hopkins University Johns Hopkins University
  • A lot of programmers here at Johns Hopkins
  • You can see Hackerman way there Hackerman way
  • You might want to have a little special spot toward the back that you could kind of wall off when you're doing hacking
  • {{ 911bs: hacking code or hacking dumbodrops into meat for Alefantis' pig farm? }}
  • Anyway you could almost see Imran getting the contract for DHS for using the Nano SATs,
  • Using the Nanosat information,
  • Uusing the NASA information
  • Coming up with a big screen NADRA system--writing that interface,
  • Going to Pakistan for three months of the year with this programming team
  • Recruiting here out of the four or five different safe houses
  • The thing is almost writing itself
  • Of course he's with Andre Carson in his office, because that's the cash cow that's the guy who has the purse strings for the NADRA application for DHS
  • There's gonna be other applications that are written that funneled down from DHS
  • Those are going to be all the applications all the chaired off applications
  • So you have Coast Guard yeah infiltration will be across 30 different DynCorp backbone agencies
  • So the PTech and now Imran Awangate or Awan-contra whatever you want to call it
  • And the beauty of the whole thing is it's all done under the color of law

Good Sunday morning. THE NEXT FEW WEEKS -- @mkraju: “On Trump’s first full day of vacation, WH does not disclose any of his activities, per pool report”. THE PRESIDENT also tweeted at 6:36 p.m.: “Working in Bedminster, N.J., as long planned construction is being done at the White House. This is not a vacation - meetings and calls!” But according to pictures posted on Instagram, he did play golf Saturday. http://bit.ly/2vDTw1W

L.A. TIMES: “President Trump is tasked with governing, but he keeps harping on these 7 things,” by Kurtis Lee http://lat.ms/2vuirVr
ARTICLE OF THE DAY – NYT A1, “Republican Shadow Campaign for 2020 Takes Shape as Trump Doubts Grow,” by Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns (print headline: “President Aside, G.O.P. Stars Move Toward 2020 Bids”): “Senators Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse have already been to Iowa this year, Gov. John Kasich is eyeing a return visit to New Hampshire, and Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago. President Trump’s first term is ostensibly just warming up, but luminaries in his own party have begun what amounts to a shadow campaign for 2020 — as if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren’t involved. The would-be candidates are cultivating some of the party’s most prominent donors, courting conservative interest groups and carefully enhancing their profiles. Mr. Trump has given no indication that he will decline to seek a second term.
“But the sheer disarray surrounding this presidency -- the intensifying investigation by the special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and the plain uncertainty about what Mr. Trump will do in the next week, let alone in the next election -- have prompted Republican officeholders to take political steps unheard-of so soon into a new administration. ... But in interviews with more than 75 Republicans at every level of the party, elected officials, donors and strategists expressed widespread uncertainty about whether Mr. Trump would be on the ballot in 2020 and little doubt that others in the party are engaged in barely veiled contingency planning. ... Mr. Pence has made no overt efforts to separate himself from the beleaguered president. He has kept up his relentless public praise and even in private is careful to bow to the president. Mr. Pence’s aides, however, have been less restrained in private, according to two people briefed on the conversations.
“In a June meeting with Al Hubbard, an Indiana Republican who was a top economic official in Mr. Bush’s White House, an aide to the vice president, Marty Obst, said that they wanted to be prepared to run in case there was an opening in 2020 and that Mr. Pence would need Mr. Hubbard’s help, according to a Republican briefed on the meeting. Reached on the phone, Mr. Hubbard declined to comment. Mr. Ayers has signaled to multiple major Republican donors that Mr. Pence wants to be ready. Mr. Obst denied that he and Mr. Ayers had made any private insinuations and called suggestions that the vice president was positioning himself for 2020 ‘beyond ridiculous.’ ...
“Nikki Haley, the ambassador to the United Nations and a former governor of South Carolina, put her longtime pollster on the payroll, has gotten better acquainted with some of New York’s financiers and carved out a far more muscular foreign policy niche than Mr. Trump. ‘She sounds more like me than Trump,’ said Senator Lindsey Graham, a hawkish Republican from South Carolina.” http://nyti.ms/2vC1ckK
VP MIKE PENCE RESPONDS -- "Today's article in the New York Times is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team. The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this Administration. Thanks to the President's leadership, we are rebuilding the military, ISIS is on the run, and we've seen more than 1 million jobs created while the stock market hits all-time highs.
"The American people know that I could not be more honored to be working side by side with a president who is making America great again. Whatever fake news may come our way, my entire team will continue to focus all our efforts to advance the President's agenda and see him re-elected in 2020. Any suggestion otherwise is both laughable and absurd."
KELLYANNE CONWAY talking with GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS on ABC’s “This Week” about whether Pence is setting up a shadow campaign: “That is complete fiction. That is complete fabrication. And I know that his advisers who had comments attributed to them have pushed back strongly, as has the vice president. And as am I right now unequivocally. Vice President Pence is a very loyal, very dutiful, but also incredibly effective vice president, and active vice president, with this president. He is a peer to the president in the West Wing. ...
“But let me make very clear, people meet -- Republican consultants, as always, people trying to play the parlor game, they’re not on the – they’re in the I would say Trump inside -- inner circle because they did not believe in him. They totally missed what was happening in America. … I would tell my Republican brethren: get onboard. Help us with tax reform and health reform and stop looking at 2020.”
-- ALSO IN JMART and ALEX’s story: “In the wider world of conservative Trump opponents, William Kristol, editor at large of The Weekly Standard, said he had begun informal conversations about creating a ‘Committee Not to Renominate the President.’” Kristol told us this morning that the proposed name is a dig at Trump being like Nixon in his opinion. He also said he hasn’t set up the group yet but so far only talked about doing so with “people you'd expect in GOP anti-Trump circles.”
-- FROM KRISTOL’s weekly newsletter, “Kristol Clear” last Monday: “Mike Murphy and I had lunch Friday at a suitably obscure Chinese restaurant in an L.A. strip mall, Hu’s Szechwan Restaurant, where we ended up in a long session plotting the salvation of the GOP and conservatism from Donald Trump. We’ll see whether anything comes of it.”
ON THE WORLD STAGE -- “North Korea Shrugs Off Sanctions Despite China’s Push to End Missile Tests,” by WSJ’s Ben Otto in Manila: “The U.S. praised China for backing new economic sanctions by the U.N. Security Council against Pyongyang over the regime’s weapons program, but North Korea indicated to its most important economic partner that there would be no change in policy. ‘The fact that the Chinese were helpful and instrumental in setting up this really sweeping set of international sanctions shows they realize that this is a huge problem they need to take on, that it’s a threat to them and their region,’ Susan Thornton, the U.S. State Department’s acting assistant secretary for East Asian and Pacific affairs, told journalists on the sidelines of regional security meetings in the Philippines on Sunday. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is attending the forum bringing together 27 nations, including China, Russia, South Korea and North Korea, described the sanctions as ‘a good outcome’ as he works to curb Pyongyang’s nuclear-weapons program.
“The Security Council on Saturday unanimously passed a resolution that would slash about $1 billion from North Korea’s annual foreign revenue. Ms. Thornton called the sanctions the strongest against the regime in a generation. China and Russia, two permanent council members who had previously resisted fresh sanctions against Pyongyang, said the rogue nation’s recent provocations were unacceptable.” http://on.wsj.com/2uvMUhl
REVIVING HEALTH CARE? -- “McConnell to consider bipartisan plan to pay health insurers,” by AP’s Adam Beam at Fancy Farm, Ky.: “A week after an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’d consider a bipartisan effort to continue payments to insurers to avert a costly rattling of health insurance markets. McConnell told reporters Saturday there is ‘still a chance’ the Senate could revive the measure to repeal and replace ‘Obamacare,’ but he acknowledged the window for that is rapidly closing. The Kentucky senator noted Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee is working on ‘some kind of bipartisan approach’ that would involve subsidies for insurance companies.
“Alexander recently said he will work with the committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Patty Murray of Washington state, on a bill next month that would pay insurers through 2018. In exchange, Alexander wants Democrats to agree to make it easier for states to choose their own health coverage standards that insurers must provide rather than abiding by former President Barack Obama’s law. ‘If the Democrats are willing to support some real reforms rather than just an insurance company bailout, I would be willing to take a look at it,’ McConnell said, hours before he was expected to speak at the famously raucous Fancy Farm picnic in western Kentucky.” http://bit.ly/2fjCUpx
THE RESISTANCE -- “Obama’s army takes on Trump,” by Isaac Dovere in Chicago: “Walk into Organizing for Action’s new hipster downtown hardwood space here, and there’s no big picture of Barack Obama, just a deep blue wall with a giant ‘OFA’ painted in white. Look down the street from the front door, though, and Chicago’s Trump skyscraper looms directly in the line of sight, a perpetual reminder of the group’s new purpose.
“Fresh off a huge win for anti-Trump forces in the Obamacare repeal fight, the Democratic activist group is gearing up for its next showdown this fall—battling President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts with the same state- and district-focused strategy it employed on health care. The organization inspired by Obama hasn’t heard from him in months, though a person close to the former president said he’s likely to lend his support later this year to OFA as well as the [DNC] and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. That could include fundraising and other help, but not a direct leadership role.
“In the meantime, OFA isn’t sitting still. It's already looking at plans to go into 2018 with a massive voter registration drive that could become its main project ahead of the midterms. First, though, OFA will spend Congress’ August recess sending organizers to town halls and district offices. It has a calendar of ‘accountability’ (read: protest) and ‘appreciation’ (read: drop-ins like the one to deliver cupcakes to Sen. Joe Manchin’s West Virginia office last week) events, based on senators’ votes on repealing Obamacare. They’re showing up to cheer for John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, and yell at people like Jeff Flake and Dean Heller.” http://politi.co/2vbzfhs

STEPHEN MILLER’S NEW GIG? -- “Trump eyes top policy aide for communications director role: official,” by Reuters’ Stephen Holland: “The White House may appoint a senior policy adviser with hardline views on immigration, who recently sparred with reporters in a televised briefing, as its new communications director, a senior administration official said on Saturday. Stephen Miller, a top aide and speechwriter for President Donald Trump, is a candidate to lead the White House’s communications team after a series of personnel changes in the more than six months that Trump has been president.” http://reut.rs/2ufFhjQ
THE TWEETER IN CHIEF -- “New Chief of Staff Reins in White House Aides-and Trump’s Tweets,” by Bloomberg’s Jen Jacobs and Margaret Talev: “Perhaps even more important, Kelly is testing his authority to tame Trump’s sometimes reckless tweeting habits. While Kelly isn’t vetting every presidential tweet, Trump has shown a willingness to consult with his chief of staff before hitting ‘send’ on certain missives that might cause an international uproar or lead to unwelcome distractions, according to three people familiar with the interactions. Kelly has been ‘offering a different way to say the same thing,’ the person said.” https://bloom.bg/2vbfpTg
SUNDAY BEST -- CHRIS WALLACE interviews DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD ROSENSTEIN on “Fox News Sunday,” by Zach Warmbrodt: “Rosenstein said Sunday that President Donald Trump has not directed the Justice Department to investigate ‘particular people,’ after Trump said at a rally Thursday that prosecutors should look at Hillary Clinton's ‘33,000 deleted emails.’ Asked on ‘Fox News Sunday’ if he viewed Trump’s comment as an order, Rosenstein said, ‘If the president wants to give orders to us ... he does that privately and then if we have any feedback we provide it to him.’ ‘The president has not directed us to investigate particular people,’ he said. ‘That wouldn’t be right. That’s not the way we operate.’ …
“Responding to a question about special counsel Robert Mueller expanding the investigation to Trump’s finances, Rosenstein said the Justice Department doesn’t engage in ‘fishing expeditions.’ (Mueller is answering to Rosenstein since Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the Russia investigation.) If Mueller finds something outside the scope of the investigation as outlined in an agreement with Rosenstein, ‘he needs to come to the acting attorney general, at this time me, for permission to expand his investigation.’ ‘But we don’t talk about that publicly,’ he said.” http://politi.co/2vCeDkq
-- SEN. JEFF FLAKE (R-ARIZ.) talks with NBC’S CHUCK TODD on “Meet the Press”: TODD: And I am just curious did you think about leaving the party? FLAKE: “No. No. Not at all. I'm a proud Republican. Lifelong Republican. And I'm from Arizona. Arizona tends to elect independent minded people and people who stand on principles. So I'm doing what I think my voters expect of me. But I think, for example, in 2006 when the party in particular had given way to inappropriate spending, earmarked spending, a couple of our colleagues ended up in jail, if you remember, the mantra, ‘Drain the swamp,’ was employed very effectively by the Democrats in describing the Republican Party at that time. And I think had we stood up at that time then we wouldn't have lost those majorities in the House and the Senate. And I fear that we might do the same again.”
-- CHRIS CHRISTIE talks with CNN’S JAKE TAPPER on “State of the Union”: TAPPER: “You’re a former U.S. attorney. You know Bob Mueller and James Comey, for that matter. Doesn’t it trouble you to hear the president denigrate their integrity and the work that they’re doing?” CHRISTIE: “Listen, I don’t think he was talking about Bob Mueller and Jim Comey there. I think he was talking about the coverage that he thinks has been unfair. But let’s make clear, Jake, this is a normal step taken by a careful prosecutor who is doing a thorough investigation. And I think that’s exactly what Bob Mueller is doing. You can’t issue subpoenas without a grand jury. It’s the grand jury that actually issues the subpoenas.
“And so I think Bob Mueller wanted a grand jury that was focused on this, so he could issue subpoenas and then review the evidence. That’s a typical thing to be done in any investigation. I did literally thousands of these as U.S. attorney in seven years in New Jersey. And so I thought that the coverage about how monumental this was is just a fundamental misunderstanding of the way this process works. This is what a careful prosecutor does to do a thorough review of the case. I assume that what Mr. Mueller is doing, based on my experience with him. And let him do his work.”
-- ON TRUMP’S NEW JERSEY VACATION -- CHRISTIE: “The president is welcome at the gubernatorial beach house any time he wants. We would welcome him with open arms for him to come and take some time at the Jersey Shore. … Now, I would be happy to welcome him. But we’re just happy that the president has decided, of all the places he could go for some relaxation, at least a little bit, during August, that he’s coming to the state of New Jersey. And we recommend that to lots of other people who are watching. Four weeks to go in the summer, come to the Jersey Shore. We’re ready to take you.”
FRESH HOT MUELLER TAKES -- MAUREEN DOWD in the NYT, “Bobby Sticks It to Trump”: “We are in for an epic clash between two septuagenarians who both came from wealthy New York families and attended Ivy League schools but couldn’t be more different — the flamboyant flimflam man and the buttoned-down, buttoned-up boy scout. (And we know the president has no idea how to talk to scouts appropriately.) One has been called America’s straightest arrow. One disdains self-promotion and avoids the press. One married his sweetheart from school days. One was a decorated Marine in Vietnam. One counts patience, humility and honesty as the virtues he lives by and likes to say ‘You’re only as good as your word.’
“And one’s president. Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio says the president has been lying reflexively since he was a kid bragging about home runs he didn’t hit. He gets warped satisfaction from making up stuff, like those calls from the head of the Boy Scouts and the president of Mexico that the White House just admitted never happened.” http://nyti.ms/2v9amEJ
– JACK SHAFER, “Gone Fishing for Donald Trump: Robert Mueller’s grand jury has a big hole to fill”: “The Constitution plus decades of judicial precedent have endowed grand juries with legal superpowers. ... Think of a grand jury as an insatiable maw and you begin to understand Mueller’s task and Trump’s terror. Mountains of phone records, business records, emails, and all manner of paperwork are likely to be subpoenaed by Mueller. ... Like Bill Clinton before him, Trump will be compelled to give testimony. He might want to start working on that honesty thing so the special counsel doesn’t nail him on that perjury thing, like independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr did Clinton.” http://politi.co/2v9jOI7
TRUMP’S WASHINGTON -- “How Trump’s FCC aided Sinclair's expansion,” by Margaret Harding McGill and John Hendel: “Sinclair Broadcast Group is expanding its conservative-leaning television empire into nearly three-quarters of American households — but its aggressive takeover of the airwaves wouldn’t have been possible without help from President Donald Trump's chief at the Federal Communications Commission. Sinclair, already the nation’s largest TV broadcaster, plans to buy 42 stations from Tribune Media in cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, on top of the more than 170 stations it already owns.
“It got a critical assist this spring from Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who revived a decades-old regulatory loophole that will keep Sinclair from vastly exceeding federal limits on media ownership. The change will allow Sinclair — a company known for injecting ‘must run’ conservative segments into its local programming — to reach 72 percent of U.S. households after buying Tribune’s stations. That’s nearly double the congressionally imposed nationwide audience cap of 39 percent.
“The FCC and the company both say the agency wasn’t giving Sinclair any special favors by reviving the loophole, known as the ‘UHF discount,’ which has long been considered technologically obsolete. But the Tribune deal would not have been viable if not for Pai’s intervention: Sinclair already reaches an estimated 38 percent of U.S. households without the discount, leaving it almost no room for growth.” http://politi.co/2wwXHci

MEDIAWATCH -- “New Sexual Harassment Allegations Leveled Against Fox News’ Eric Bolling,” by Yashar Ali in HuffPost: “Three hours after Fox News announced it had suspended host Eric Bolling following allegations that he had sexually harassed female colleagues, a former Fox News guest leveled new accusations against him. Caroline Heldman, who appeared on the network frequently between 2008 and 2011, said Saturday that Bolling was one of three Fox News/Fox Business employees to subject her to sexual harassment. Fox News announced Bolling’s suspension less than 24 hours after an exclusive HuffPost report revealed that the host had sent lewd text messages to female colleagues.” http://bit.ly/2ufSqJx
--YASHAR ALI further notes on Twitter that “an investigation will be conducted by law firm Paul, Weiss.”
--“Top journalist sues Time magazine for ‘sex and age discrimination,’” by The Guardian’s Emma Graham-Harrison: “The co-founder of the Women’s Equality party, Catherine Mayer, is suing her former employer, Time magazine, for gender and age discrimination, making the weekly ... the latest major media company to be embroiled in accusations of institutional sexism. The case ... pits one of Britain’s most prominent journalists, who wrote a controversial biography of Prince Charles and was shortlisted for the Orwell prize, against one of America’s most famous magazines, nearly a century old and with millions of readers. ...
“Mayer’s suit ... covers the final three years of her employment at the title, and her dismissal in 2015. The problems began soon after she was appointed Europe regional editor, after eight years of outstanding performance and appraisals, court documents allege. The suit alleges that Time’s foreign editor appointed Matt McAllester, a younger male colleague, as her deputy, without an open selection process and in violation of promises that she could choose her team. Mayer says McAllester began a campaign to undermine and supplant her, even though she repeatedly raised complaints. Ultimately, Mayer claims, the company took away her responsibilities as Europe editor the year after she took on the position, then forced her to relinquish the title, which the company gave to McAllester. In April 2015 she was fired.” http://bit.ly/2vtLyrZ

Having spent the previous several years presiding over the rehabilitation of occupied Japan, the five-star general was accustomed to exercising quasi-sovereign authority. ‘In moments of reflection,’ Brands writes, ‘he asked himself if any other great country had ever owed more to one man.

2016.10.14 04:02 eagc7 Voice Actors Needed for my Transformers and Marvel Stop Motion Shared Universe Phase 3

Hey guys, so i have been working on a stop motion shared universe with the Transformers and Marvel characters since 2009 and i am heading towards the end of Phase 2 and i am currently in development of Phase Three, so this phase will mostly focused on the Transformers with the Marvel characters more or less in Supporting roles. the scripts are not ready yet, but i plan to have them ready by the end of the year or by the beginning of next year. so Phase 3 will consist of the following projects
  1. Transformers: War for Cybertron; this will serve as a prequel project which will detail how Optimus and Megatron became bitter enemies and how the war started, despite the title this has nothing to do with the game, i just took the title because i felt it worked for this project.

Questions Answers
Hey Jesse, love modern family it always cheers me up. My question is, what advice would you give to the young teenage LGBT community who are going through difficult times either with coming out, being bullied etc? Well, i can relate to that. i was bullied a LOT growing up. I found activities outside of school that interested me. (Community Theater was my salvation). I think the most important thing to do is find people you are safe around and who you can talk to. The internet is a great resource now too. The world is so much bigger than it was when I was a kid. Facebook, Instagram, TrevorProject, Trevor Space are all great ways of expanding your universe and finding people who understand you.
Do you ever see you guys doing a Modern Family live episode? And who do you think could really rock a Tie The Knot? I don't see a live episode happening...but who knows? I think George Clooney need to rock a Tie The Knot Bow Tie...or Obama! I know they are both Marriage Equality advocates! Maybe POTUS will wear one on decision day in June!
Hi Jesse! I loved the episodes you did on Web Therapy. What was it like making those episodes? I'm obsessed with LIsa Kudrow. She was a dream to work with. Very collaborative. I was very intimidated by her when we started but she instantly made me feel comfortable...we basically just played all day on the Web Therapy set!
Hi Jesse! Is filming in mockumentary style more difficult than the traditional format? I LOVE performing for a live studio audience...but doing a show like Modern Family is great because it works a different set of muscles as an actor. I really enjoy the subtleties you can bring to the format of our show.
How can a small town suburban soccer mom support marriage equality? It's not an issue I relate to but I am for equal rights for all and am not sure how to show it! Thats great & you CAN relate to it BECAUSE you want rights for all! You can spread the word about accepting all people. I think the best way to support is thru love and acceptance. You can also buy Tie The Knot bow ties for your family and friends! :)
Hi Jesse! Thanks for doing this AMA. Did I see Justin in DC handing out bow ties and Save the Dates? You DID! we are so proud that he could be on the steps of SCOTUS for that historical day!!! It meant a lot to all of us at Tie The Knot to be able to be a presence on that day. Did you get a bow tie?
Hi Jesse! Thank you so much for everything you do for the LGBT community! Its because of people like you that we are finally getting the rights that we deserve. My question is, what triggered your desire to be an activist? Was it a specific moment in your life or was it just a general need for change? Having been bullied as a kid i really felt for people who felt marginalized or "less than". i wanted to use my new platform to help people. justin, my husband has been an amazing partner in helping me make those ideas a reality. he is equally passionate and has great ideas.
Do you defend pandas in court? Kidding. What's it like working with Nathan Lane? He's a comic genius. (Lane...not the panda). I feel so lucky that I get to work with him whenever his schedule allows for him to fly to LA and be on our show!
Hi Jesse! My boyfriend just introduced me to Modern Family a few months ago, and I have been binge watching to catch up! I was just wondering, what is the harshest thing you've ever experienced at an audition? How did you overcome it? You have to have a tough skin of you want to be an actor. I have heard everything from "you aren't talented and you won't make it" to "you aren't tall enough"... Best think is to know your self worth and have faith in your talent.
What is the best thing a director can do for you on set? Collaborate and be open to all ideas...even if they may see dumb. it's great to try stuff. sometimes the best ideas are born from things that seem ridiculous.
Where was favorite location to shoot Modern Family? We love traveling for the show. australia was really fun because it felt like a family vacation. also disneyland was a blast! Where should we go next?
Hi Jesse. Over past times, a lot of straight actors would play gay characters. Do you think has changed more over the years ? How would you feel about the opposite - acting a straight character role ? I think all actors should be able to play anything. we are actors. I have played straight roles and Eric Stonestreet is playing a gay role now. I hope that the stigma is slowly lifting.
Hi Jesse!!! I think you are an amazing actor and I admire your drive to fight for marriage equality; you seem to be full of passion and joy. I was wondering if that was always the case or if you ever felt - like so many of us do at times - that things would not get better? I always knew that there were people outside of my hometown that would love me for who I was. I also had a supportive family. Many people don't. I STRONGLY suggest TrevorProject.org as a resource if you are feeling alone. They are amazing.
What is like to do talk shows like jimmy fallon and ellen? Do you get nervous or are they laid back? Both Jimmy and Ellen are really nice and make me feel very comfortable but dong talkshows is always a little stressful.
I love the bow ties. I wear bow ties regularly, as a school teacher, and to able to look great and support a meaningful cause is incredible, I just wanted to thank you for that. Now for my question; Celebrity you've met who totally surprised you, in a good way!, with their demeanor and mannerisms? LOVE that you love the bow ties! Thankyou!!! Julianne Moore is one of the most gracious people I have ever met...not that I wasn't expecting her to be...but I am just such a fan of hers...it's nice when the people you admire are so lovely.
Hi Jesse, I'm asking this question on behalf of my fiancé. Who was the best person to work with on sytycd? Have you kept up with any of the dancers from the show? I LOVE everyone on SYTYCD but Cat and I have become very close. I keep up with Melanie, Nico & Ricky a bit. and I am good friends with Travis Wall!
How often do you hit the gym and what exercises do you do to stay in shape? Do you have fitness role models? I try and stay fit and active but I always wish I could do more...or look better. I like to eat too much! I'm a foodie.
Besides Modern Family, what other current TV series would you want to be part of? I am obsessed with Portlandia and Inside Amy Schumer. Also, I would love to work with Tina Fey and/or Amy Poehler someday.
Hey, Jesse! What's the funniest thing that's ever happened on any set you've been on? Also, what movie or show never fails to make you laugh? Thanks for doing this AMA. I love Modern Family! It was pretty funny when Sofia was supposed to say " "Manny why are you hanging upside down" and instead she said "Manny why are you hanging Sunny Side Up"
What's your least favorite type of person? A close minded person who feels they are u not capable of growth or change. a stubborn person.
What episode has been your favorite to film? I love shooting the wedding episodes. also the episode at the roller rink was really fun.
Is your relationship with Justin at all like Mitchell's relationship with Cam ? Not at all! i think i have to work harder on my "marriage to cam" than I do on my marriage to Justin! Ha!
Do you think the recent changes across the U.S. on gay marriage bans will ultimately change the minds of the Supreme Court justices to allow it to be legal? I think people can see that denying a group of minorities their civil rights is not a good thing. It is becoming harder and harder to justify.
Hi Jesse! I was just watching last week's episode today. So, what's the real value on your sofa? Only the set designers at Modern Family know that. I assume its not as much as the characters say it is.
Do you think it's cool if a girl wears a bow tie? YES! for SURE! what about in your hair? or around your neck...just as cool!
Who is your closet Broadway actor friend? BTW I'm flying from Japan to NY to see you on the Tempest!!! Already worried if I can get a ticket on that day... I have many! Celia Keenan Bolger is one of my besties. But I also am close with Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald & Lea DeLaria.
Hey Jesse, big fan! What has it been like to watch all the kids on Modern Family grow up? i.e. Nolan, Ariel, Rico, Aubrey, and Sarah? They are the greatest kids. They are all driving now! I want them to stay little!!!
Who are your acting idols? Madeline Kahn, Steve Martin, Robin Williams.
Which director would you love to work with in film at some point? My friend Liz Banks! She just directed Pitch Perfect 2.
Hey Jesse, huge fan! I was just wondering what your favourite Shakespearean Character is and why? I love the Dromios in Comedy of Errors. I also love Bottom in Midsummer.
Who is most like their character in Modern Family? I guess joe the baby and stella the dog.

Questions Answers
I've always wondered this. Has anyone ever picked a fight with you at a bar or somewhere else since you have started fighting? How would you react if they did? It happens all the time. I'm not the biggest guy, but I do like the ladies. I bring my wife when I go out, but that does not mean I dont try to get girls for my friends or just in general like having nice things to look at. This pisses a lot of guys off. I usually talk my way out of fights and my wife is amazing at calming me down. But there have been a few big buff dudes that got KO'ed by me, but I walk away almost all the time.
I'm surprised that your wife is ok with you "having nice things to look at" lol.. She is awesome.
Can you tell us about the time/times you didn't walk away? Not really.
Yeah, people tend to get pissed off if you flirt with their wife or girlfriend. If they dont saying anything how the hell am I supposed to know? People hit on my wife all the time and she just shuts them down.
One too many punches to the head? Probably
Nik: "On most IQ tests I score between 135 and 141. I score extremely high on spatial-temporal reasoning, as well as math and logic, but on language ability I score just above a mentally handicap." Lol. The truth hurts.......lol.
Thoughts on UFC 151 getting cancelled? In particular, how do you feel about Jon Jones now? I don’t understand his feelings on not taking the fight. He had every advantage. Sonnen just lost, had no time to train, is a 185 lb guy, and talks a lot of shit about Jones. It is just the perfect opportunity to shut him up…..I don’t know if he knew that the entire card would be cancelled or not. Taking a fight on short notice is very hard to do, not for the fighter who had the full camp, but for the guy stepping up. Sonnen was never my favorite fighter, but this shows that he really backs up what he says. Well played by Sonnen……Jones confused me and I think he made a horrible decision
Do you think that Dana could have saved the card some other way? Did he really have to cancel the event? It's the UFC's fault for not putting together a better card in-case the main event fell through. They should have had Nik Lentz on the card ;) Lol, I don't know how it works. I was surprised as anyone that it got canceled.....Dana is a smart guy, so I'm sure he tried everything.
I weigh about 100 pounds, how many times do you think you could punch me before I would die? Hmmmm I would hope I could do it in 30.
What do you do immediately before the fight to prepare yourself mentally? Nothing to special. The one thing I don’t like is people touching me. A hand shake or a hug is fine, but I really don’t like anyone in my space. I pace a little, remind myself I’m the man and am going to win, think about my family and how much I love them, and go out and try to hurt the guy trying to take my dreams from me.
Who is your favorite SC2 player and team? DRG, I like FXO because they have a great story and have worked hard to get where they are.
Aaaaaaaand Nerd cred has been officially established :) Link to www.youtube.com
Thought on League of Legends? (Random question) Cool game, has the potential to be the biggest thing Esports has ever seen. I think SC is a much higher skill based game, but LOL is free and the learning curve is lower so it will always have a much larger audience.
I just watched the entire video... I'm so stoned. Link to www.youtube.com
How about Dota 2? I have played DOTA 2, but I dont play regularly
Who would win in a game of FootLoL, you or chirs kluwe (of the seattle seahawks)? I don't know what that is, so I guess him.
How do you feel about weight cutting in MMA in general? It seems crazy to me that two guys that weigh 170 cut down to 145 for one day, and then fight at 170. Why not just not cut weight at all? I think its good. It adds strategy to the game. Now that I have my weight and preparation planned out on such a high level, I will always have an advantage at 145. I have be in weight related sports for a long time now. I guess it just the norm for me.
Who is the craziest person you've ever trained with? Volkmann, dude is one of my best fighting friends, but he is an odd dude. He is also freaky strong……..He is probably the strongest human pound for pound. Never lifted a weight in his life, just killed pigs with his hands when he was a kid….lol.
Never lifted a weight in his life, just killed pigs with his hands when he was a kid. In your face, /Fitness Lolololol.
Who needs a gym when you have a farm. Farmers are always strong as hell.
What was the deciding factor in you moving down a weightclass? And how do you plan on separating yourself from other contenders in a pretty wide open division!? Some of the guys are 155 are bigger than me in every way. Height, reach, weight, etc…….I just did not want to deal with that anymore. I felt like I could be a great 155 lb guy, but a champion at 145. I will separate myself by my skills and strength. I did well at 155, I’m now one weight class down, stronger, faster, and am training right.
How much of the story to disclosed fighter payouts tell? How does sponsorship money compare to UFC salary? Not trying to ask your exact financial breakdown but there is so much mystery about this. Fighters don’t make very much money. You really do not make too much money until you get up to begging a main guy on the PPV’s. If you are one of the last 5 or 6 fights you are living well and if you are one of the last 2 you pay goes up by 5 to 10 times and main event probably 20-30 times…..if not more….Its feast or famine in the MMA world and most people are starving. I personally live a modest, but good life. Im far from rich, but I make more than the average person in the US. The mystery is because a lot of people do not want the world to know how little a lot of the guys make.
Hey Nik, cool for you to do this AMA. I would have never expected it... Joe Lauzon is usually around reddit and he did one a couple of years ago. Will this mean you'll keep using reddit from now on? ;) Also, I read a couple of days ago you invested your last * of the night bonus in changing training camps... how much money do fighters spend on average for their preparation? How fucked are the guys who were supposed to fight at UFC 151? Do you think there's any of them who might not be able to do a full training camp for their re-scheduled bout (do to the economic impact of not having fought on Sept.)? I'm on reddit everyday, I just use a different account. I figured I would make a new on for this....so everyone was not talking to CrypticG3n0cide. A lot of those guy are going to struggle and not be able to train as easily. I spent around 15k for my last fight camp. I dont really know what other guys are spending.
Fighter pay has been a big issue in the news recently. I know only part of a fighter's total pay is ever reported publicly. I'm wondering how much, or at least what percentage of pay, a fighter typically (or you specifically) gets for your show pay, win bonus, discretionary UFC performance bonus, sponsorship pay, and any other miscellaneous income? I kind of answered this question already, but in general most fighters do not make very much money. The top guys are making big bucks, but the lower guys are just getting by...
Which fighter influenced you the most to get into MMA? Not really one person. I take moves from people. For example GSP has the best double in the game. So I have watched every GSP fight and just watched his doubles over and over. I do this for every fighter.
Who are some of your favorite fighters to watch right now? Anderson.
How do you handle crowd pressure and Octagon jitters? It was only hard for my first fight. I got really tired 30 seconds into the fight. After that it was back to the norm. I have over 40 fights, so I don’t get too nervous about the crowd or the octagon
What was your proudest moment, what was least proud moment? My proudest moment is getting married to my wife. The least proud moment is fighting with my father at one point where we almost got to actually fighting.
What's your favorite kind of salad dressing? Blue Cheese and when I'm in fight camp two TBSP of Olive Oil and one TBSP of aged Balsamic Vinegar.
Prolly been asked before but any advice for people trying to lose weight? any ufc sex stories? any advice with the ladies? any life advice in general? You should go visit the dominican republic. The Dolce Diet will help you lose weight. I also post diet advice all the time on twitter and FB. I have no good UFC sex stories. The key to getting ladies is confidence and self respect. Dont case girls, make them pass a quality test as well. Are they funny? Smart? If they are not go find a different one. If you have respect in yourself, so will the ladies.
Touching off this, and this isn't taking away from your performance in any way, why do you think Japanese guys tend to have such poor results in the UFC? I heard that the flight puts their body out of whack but I wonder how much of that is true. I think the UFC is just a different level. Fighting in any other organization is nothing like fighting in the UFC. I think some of it has to do with travel, but people travel from EU, South America and every where else. It really has to do with the skill level in the UFC. The skill level in the UFC can not be reproduced anywhere.
Can you give me some specifics on your weight cut diet? I train MMA 2/3 times a week. Definitely a rookie as I've only been at it a little over a year. I eat mostly a paleo diet and hear the diets for cutting weight are similar. I'm sure you know what the paleo diet consists of... but just in case, it's organic meats/fish. Organic fruits & veggies, eggs, nuts, water. Nothing processed or un-natural, no carbs or starches. And... when you're not cutting weight what's your diet like? Just a free for all? Thanks. I don’t like the Paleo diet. First, I think their ideas on what and how people ate are wrong. They did eat the stuff in the diet back then, but the proportions are wrong. I would buy Dolce’s books and go from there. If you get high enough in the game you could hire him! Good luck man, keep me updated on your career on twitter @NikLentz
I'll help you with your pvz. Add me. Salgoud.419. 1400 masters zerg. I also do mma at Ivan's. Will trade lessons for advice on how to get better. Ok.
Do you think you're as good at MMA as MMA is at starcraft 2? :D. I'm way better ;)
Thanks for always giving us an Exciting! fights. We hear alot about TRT and guys who are just good at timing their cycles, but are their other things like blood doping or viagra going on behind the scenes? I dont take any kind of supplements. I think an all natural diet is way better and will lead to a long, fulfilled life. I hate TRT, I think its the biggest load of crap in the world. Its just legal cheating. I would love more testing and would be patient zero for any type of random testing. TRT is cheating to me and steroids are in all sports, but because I dont take them, Im not part of that social circle. So I probably dont know to much about it. As far as the other methods...I dont really know.
Sup bro, so what's your take on your new division? who do you think is at the top, and who do you want to fight next? I don’t really care who I fight next. The only thing that I want is to be able to have a full camp for it. It is harder to take shorter notice fights now because I will be training in Florida at ATT. I think the Franky is going to take the division over and will be the Champ. He will be the guy I have to beat to get the title. The weight class is stacked. I think 155 is the hardest weight class in the world ATM, but I think 145 is moving up the rankings.
Hypothetically speaking, if your life was on the line if you loose. Would rather face Jose Aldo in the Octagon or on 1vs1 on Starcraft 2? Aldo man, I would love to fight someone to the death….could you think of a better way to test yourself? Besides, even if I died (Which I would not ;) I would have some serious street cred in the after life!
Hey Nik, my goal is to make it into the UFC and was just wondering, when did you have your first ammy MMA fight, how long did it take you to go pro, and then how long was it to get in the UFC. Did you ever worry that you wouldnt make it in because there wasnt enough time to get all the fights that you wanted? I have been fighting for around 7 years. I never had an amateur fight. There is this horrible place that many fighters get stuck in. You have not beat a guy that’s good enough to get you recognized, yet no one that would be a great win on your record will fight you. It’s too dangerous for them to lose to you, and they gain nothing if they beat you. I was stuck in the situation for about a year and a half. I had no money, no one would fight me and the UFC didn’t want me. That was one of the hardest times of my life. On my 25th birthday I felt like the biggest loser in the world………Good luck and work hard! I wish you all the best! Keep me updated on twitter @NikLentz.
Any general clues as to the kind of person you don't want to be up against? At 145, I dont really care. If someone is taller than me, I will have the strength advantage. That was not the case at 155 and I had to fight lots of guys that were taller and weighed more. So at 145 I feel like there are no physical advantages that will not equal out.
Who are your favorite fighters to watch as a fan currently and all time? Who are your favorite fighters to watch as a fan currently and all time?
How is ATT working out for you so far? How is ATT working out for you so far?
What country that you haven't fought in yet would you like to? What country that you haven't fought in yet would you like to?
What other fighters are big gamers aside from Jens and Joe? What other fighters are big gamers aside from Jens and Joe?
JoLau says he spensd ~40K (maybe it was 20K) in training before a fight. What kind of money is there in MMA being spent on training/traveling/etc. Are you reimbursed by UFC for anything? Also UFC bonus. What is handed out besides the 3 they announce? Training camps are very expensive. My last training camp cost about as much as all the other ones combined. The UFC does not reimburse training camps. They give performance based bonuses. So if you fight hard you will get a little extra on the side. If you help promote and have a great main event, you could get a million dollar check. Most guys are getting very small bonuses, but every bit helps
Why is your nickname "The Carny"? Link to www.startribune.com
Hay Nik! I was wondering, what is Dana White like in person? I've always wanted to know what he's like away from the cameras :3. Also, I saw your featherweight debut live, great fight :D. He is just like he is on TV. Dana has been super cool with me. I think he is one of the coolest guys to work for. Although if you get on his bad side......I dont even want to know......
Toilet Paper - over or under? I had no idea that this was even an option when I was younger. It was always under and then randomly someone asked me like this......since then, I'm kind of a hybrid
So... you put the roll on its side? No I just switch back and forth.
Since Chess-Boxing is a thing, do you think you would dominate SC2-MMA, if it existed? It would not even be fun to watch, I would be that good.
How much pressure does the UFC give you to put on entertaining fights and take risks? A lot of pressure, sometimes so much guys crack and have horrible fights.
How much did you weigh in the ring in your last fight? I'd like to see a fighters weight the day of a fight. 165.
I read a post on the UG that said you tapped out Brock Lesnar in training. Can you confirm this? He was not going to hard, but I jumped on a guillotine and held on for the ride. He had to tap! It was awesome, but they he picked me up when we started again and threw me across the room.
Wow i had no idea there were any sc2 players in pro mma. Pretty cool. Congrats on your last fight! Any idea when you are fighting next? I do not know, but I want to fight in Dec.
Apparently I posted in the wrong thread but anyways is 145 the right division for you weight wise compared to 155? Definitely, I was undersized at 155. It did not matter before because I could make up for it with strength and technique. Once I was fighting top guys in the UFC the size was hard to deal with. I am also in way better shape and changed my training, so I would do better at 155 as well.
What's worse in your opinion, getting knocked out, chocked out, or submitted? They all suck....I'm the worst loser in the world..
Ok trying to think of something I haven't seen asked yet. First off, heard your interview on sherdog last week, you sound like a really nice dude. Do you ever listen to interviews back or anything to see how you came across? And to see what the interviewers said about you afterwards? What do you think of the MMA media and some people's criticisms that it has become a soap opera? With people accusing Ariel Helwani of instigating all the time between fighters, is all this over sensationalising good for the future of the sport? Or is this what all sport has evolved to because of the internet, twitter and blogs etc? I listen to every interview after I have one. I think its important to make sure you make sure you said the things you wanted to. Also some guys are nice when they talk to you and then are rude once your gone. Gives you an idea of who to turn down if you have a scheduling conflict. I don't know what to think. Whatever the most fans want is what the UFC does. I don't agree with everything, but I also didn't invest and create on of the biggest growing sports franchises in the world......so I can think what I want, but it doesn't mean I'm right
Just a follow up, any memorably bad interviews. And Cheers dude for doing the IAMA. Hmmm not really.
Three questions, first, who do you want to fight most in the UFC that you haven't yet? Second, the good old fightclub classic: if you could fight anyone, living or past, who would it be? Third: What's your favorite thing to eat when you're not in a training camp? I dont have any special person I want to fight. Jimmy Carter, and Pho.
Hey Nick...tons of respect to you...i am from India and i want to join the UFC...what are the chances that i can get through? There has been no MMA fighter from India yet...but do you think there could be any scope? And would you be kind enough to tell me the procedure? Its different for every person. I would say that if you are not training with high level guys at a good gym....Your chances are slim to none. If you want to me in the UFC you will have to move or find good training partners and coaches. Good Luck!
Since you trained with Brock do you think he was 100% in his last fight? What are your thoughts on Jones? And which fighter past or present would you like to fight against? Brock is his own dude, I have no idea about his plans or his future. We did not talk really and we only trained at the same time a hand full of times.
Will you ever rage quit an MMA fight? What is one positive and one negative thing about Dana White? No....I dont know Dana well enough to answer that question.
Hey, Nik, thank you for AMA, will be your fan from now on. My answers: What are your favourite MMA mathes? How did you start your MMA training? Which sports are you watching apart from esports? I answered a few of these. I love watching Football and Starcraft. Vikings are my team.
what about rugby or soccer? Sorry if you've already answered it also. You're awesome! They are not really on to much and I'm a noob at both. I like soccer, but the constant flopping kills it for me. Rugby seems cool, but its not on.
Hey Nik Lentz! I want to be a UFC fighter just like you one day, but I would like to know some things so I can prepare for them as I get older! I was wondering what is the camp process like mentally and physically? My other question was what is it like the week before the fight? It is very hard mentally. Especially if you have to travel and get away from your family. Physically it is hard on the body, but you should be smart and train around any kind of injury. Way to many people are getting hurt from over training and bad nutrition. Fight week is all media, mix with a few workouts for making weight.
Do you want to ever fight anderson silva? if so what would your strategy be going into the fight? that guy doesn't seem to really have any weaknesses :/ Jump for a leg lock. Its the only way I have seen him get beat. He is the best fighter in the world atm. I would not want to fight him.
What conditioning do you recommend ? Ie Shins, Jaw, Neck ? I would say just hit thai pads for the shins. Dont get in the head too much for your jaw. Thai pads will condition everything right.
What's your nickname in SC2?? Bonus if we can have your profile page. You're awesome. I dont share my main accounts. I dont want to deal with people spamming me. I just want to play games and forget about fighting.
Hey Nik*, first off congrats on your win against Mitsuoka! That was sick. Second, if you were the champion and your originally scheduled opponent got injured, would you accept a new opponent with 8 days notice? *oops, sorry. Spelled your name wrong. Bet you get that alot, huh? If I was the one who had the full training camp...I would fight a guy on one day notice.
Seems like a lot of people want to talk shit to you from behind the safety of the Internet. Do you play any of the UFC games? If so who do you use? I do not...sorry. I'm not a big fan of sports games. I play things like SF and Tekken.
Would you do a "David and Goliath" style match? If so who would you like to fight? Sure, if I got paid enough I would fight anyone.
Nik: What's your favorite submission or go to submission in a fight??? Guillotine
Yeah, one more question, No-gi, you or Rousey ? No Gi and Me of course, although I might prolong the event ;)
Hey Nik, thanks for this AMA! I'm a recently built guy in good shape, but i know nothing of fighting. Can you give me some basic tips and techniques incase i need to defend myself? Eddie Bravo beginning videos and Greg Nelson clinch series
What's the secret to quickly and effectively dropping 20-30 pounds? Earth grown food in its natural non GMO state.
What color shorts do you wear? What sponsors? Different every fight.
Hey Nik. I'm 15 and started doing MMA at the start of the year. I'm really enjoying it and hope to enter a fight soon. So I am just wondering, any tips on how I could get better and what I should be doing to help out? Take your time. You are really young and do not need to be getting hurt. Dont hurt yourself or mess up your growth into a man. Have fun, Relax, and you will be fine.
How do you feel about your height? How has it affected your career; either positively or negatively. Reach is the more important factor. Reach is a big deal in MMA and I have been at a disadvantage for a long time. One of the main reasons I went down to 145.
Would you ever play in an MLG or IPL in the open bracket if your schedule allowed you to practice? That would be really exciting. Maybe, but I would have to be in really good playing shape and hope I didn't hit any real pros for a while.
What's the hardest you've ever been kicked in the nuts? Watch my fight with Tavares. Broke my steel nut cup and I had stomach problems for a month.
I've been training hard for about 6 months though. I got 2 teachers that help me get to my first fight/tournament in China. Is there any advice you can give me? Try your best, thats all we can do. If you prepared right, everything will turn out well!
Do you have a favourite martial art? I like Eddie bravo's stuff, but thats not really a Martial Art in itself.
Do you think MMA would be better off having fighters fight at their natural weight? For example weighing in the day of the fight. No, It would make it way worse. I think it killed college wrestling.
What do you think about Mvp? Do you think Taeja will live up to the hype? MVP is awesome! I don't know about Taeja. I don't think he has a huge hype. I mean he is a good Korean player on TL which makes him in the spotlight anytime he does anything good. I think he has the talent to do very well.
Favourite mma forum - sherdog or the ug? UG I guess, but I have not been on either in years.
What's your opinion about Fedor? Have you ever competed with Russian guys and how is it for you to fight against sambo wrestler? He is a legend in the sport. Very small for HW, could be a 205 lb fighter or even lighter. I have competed against Russians. I have done fine vs sambo.
Either I'm too lazy to scroll all the way down, or I can't believe someone hasn't asked this, but what league are you in sc2? Lol its in the main post........
Maybe you can settle an argument I had with a friend. Are the less conventional submissions like peruvian necktie, d'arce choke,japanese necktie ect. are used less because they aren't as effective as triangles and armbars or because less guys have trained them enough to attack with them comfortably? Also mayonnaise or miracle whip? At a high level the chokes are used a lot more. I eat veganiese, but organic mayo would be my choice.
Not sure if its too late to ask, but I'll go ahead and do it anyways. Whats the best advice you can give me when it comes to fighting? I started training 4 months ago, and my gym is amazing. I am considering competing in a year. With that said, any advice? Have fun and don't over think it.
If you can take one move from a video game character and incorporate it into your fighting style what move would it be? Blanka Ball
What type of cake do you enjoy the most? Carrot
Does it still hurt when you get punched in the face? Yes.
