Well, I you know, I need to talk 18 00:01:33.810 --> 00:01:38.969 to Mr Warrant and, above Mr Warrington is taken a nap. Right now, 19 00:01:38.370 --> 00:01:46.290 come on, Dana, it's boys night.

So welcome everyone 28 00:02:37.849 --> 00:02:49.560 to down to folk and enjoy the show. Lucia was to buy the flowers 29 00:02:49.599 --> 00:02:53.719 herself. The Dinner Party was to honor her husband, a great jazz composer 30 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:59.909 and artist whom she knew since they were children. All of their childhood friends 31 00:02:59.949 --> 00:03:04.830 would be at the Party and Lucille would not settle for anything less than perfect. 32 00:03:05.509 --> 00:03:08.229 Lucille stared at her reflection in this so over spoon and smile that her 33 00:03:08.310 --> 00:03:14.219 pale face, black hair and dark beady eyes. She wore her signature color 34 00:03:14.539 --> 00:03:19.259 blue that morning, as she reviewed the activities for the day. Her staff 35 00:03:19.300 --> 00:03:23.539 would take care of the tedious activities, but she was to buy the flowers. 36 00:03:23.099 --> 00:03:28.210 She would not trust anyone else with this activity. They would never buy 37 00:03:28.289 --> 00:03:31.729 the right ones, or if they did, they would not be exactly what 38 00:03:31.889 --> 00:03:37.650 she wanted. If you were going to do something right, you might as 39 00:03:37.689 --> 00:03:43.199 well do it yourself. Lucy revealed her calendar with the keenest of eyes. 40 00:03:43.840 --> 00:03:47.240 She had a new patient this morning. Even though she tried to reschedule several 41 00:03:47.319 --> 00:03:53.120 times, the patient was adamant about meeting her as soon as possible and today, 42 00:03:53.560 --> 00:03:58.949 of all days, was the only day he could meet. October second 43 00:03:59.509 --> 00:04:03.349 ten am. She pushed all the other appointments to the following week, but 44 00:04:03.469 --> 00:04:10.699 this one, and now she was regretting keeping the appointment. It's only an 45 00:04:10.780 --> 00:04:14.740 hour, she told herself. He would talk about himself for an hour and 46 00:04:14.819 --> 00:04:18.139 then I go about my day. Her husband came down the stairs and sat 47 00:04:18.139 --> 00:04:23.740 at the end of the large dining room table, humming a familiar beethoven tune. 48 00:04:24.490 --> 00:04:28.850 His blond hair had not changed in years and his familiar outfit of striped 49 00:04:28.889 --> 00:04:32.769 shirt and dark pants made no impression on Lucille. As he sat down. 50 00:04:33.610 --> 00:04:38.089 Have you reviewed the guest list? My Sweet Baboo, she fluttered her eyes 51 00:04:38.129 --> 00:04:41.600 as she called him by her term of endearment. Yes, and loose, 52 00:04:41.720 --> 00:04:46.360 I know, Lucille interrupted. They are our friends and they are happy to 53 00:04:46.439 --> 00:04:50.839 join you on your special night. She would not tolerate any of his nonsense. 54 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:57.110 Today. Lucille stared at her husband from across the table. This was 55 00:04:57.149 --> 00:05:01.709 always the way she remembered seeing him at a great distance. He usually behind 56 00:05:01.709 --> 00:05:06.420 a piano. She usually closing her eyes and imagining how much more popular he 57 00:05:06.540 --> 00:05:12.500 would be if he played something modern. But in the end she got her 58 00:05:12.540 --> 00:05:16.420 way. He was a modern composer, and that was because she insisted on 59 00:05:16.579 --> 00:05:23.170 it. She always got what she wanted. Minor pleasant trees were expressed and 60 00:05:23.209 --> 00:05:27.410 Lucille exited the dining room with a quick kiss to her husband's forehead and a 61 00:05:27.449 --> 00:05:31.730 quick bite of his toast. Her driver was waiting for her outside. Good 62 00:05:31.769 --> 00:05:35.720 morning, Miss Vent but we are going to the floorisht first. Lucille cut 63 00:05:35.720 --> 00:05:41.279 him short. There wasn't time for idol chatter. She slid quickly into the 64 00:05:41.480 --> 00:05:45.439 town car, raised her eyebrows and driver quickly closed the door and hurried to 65 00:05:45.560 --> 00:05:48.560 his place behind the wheel. Lucille stared out at the window as they drove 66 00:05:48.600 --> 00:05:53.949 away. When one lives in the same county as she did when growing up, 67 00:05:54.470 --> 00:05:58.509 it was easy to notice the changes from her childhood and harder to remember 68 00:05:58.550 --> 00:06:02.470 where things used to be. As a child, everything was much grander than 69 00:06:02.509 --> 00:06:06.579 they were as an adult. Your world is smaller because it's a child, 70 00:06:06.980 --> 00:06:13.740 you were smaller. She didn't love Hennepin County, nor did she love Minnesota, 71 00:06:14.339 --> 00:06:16.980 but this is where she made a name of for herself. Anywhere else 72 00:06:17.569 --> 00:06:23.850 she would be just another pretty face in the crowd, but here everyone knew 73 00:06:23.850 --> 00:06:29.209 her, and that was exactly what she wanted to be known. The bell 74 00:06:29.329 --> 00:06:33.759 of the floor shop door rang rather loudly, much to Lucille's annoyance. Piggy, 75 00:06:34.199 --> 00:06:39.519 she sings, Sung in a saccuring, sweet tone. Piggy, where 76 00:06:39.680 --> 00:06:44.680 are you? A quiet and gentle looking man, hair disheveled, dirt upon 77 00:06:44.759 --> 00:06:47.589 his cheek and hands, looked up from a plant. He was busy potty. 78 00:06:48.629 --> 00:06:54.389 Hello, Lucial, he said with a nervous but kind squeak. Where 79 00:06:54.470 --> 00:06:59.029 are my flowers? She grinned an impatient grimace, glaring at his manner of 80 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:02.819 dress. He was always so dirty even as a child. That's when she 81 00:07:02.980 --> 00:07:06.579 gave him the nickname, which hadn't changed over the years. And, come 82 00:07:06.620 --> 00:07:11.860 to think of it, she did it really know his name, but it 83 00:07:11.939 --> 00:07:15.970 didn't matter. She could see the fear in his eyes when she spoke, 84 00:07:15.250 --> 00:07:19.930 and that fear made him work harder and provide her with the best flowers and 85 00:07:19.970 --> 00:07:26.730 all of Minnesota. Right here, piggy, motion to the beautiful arrangement of 86 00:07:26.850 --> 00:07:30.680 lilies of the Valley's violets and Foxglove, splendid. Put them in my car. 87 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:35.800 I don't have time to Dolly. Her voice sweet, her intentions sour. 88 00:07:36.800 --> 00:07:43.920 I hope your party goes well. Patricia and Marcia were here this morning 89 00:07:43.920 --> 00:07:46.470 and they are so excited to get the whole gang together. You can but, 90 00:07:46.629 --> 00:07:51.829 but he stuttered taking the flowers to the car. They asked if if 91 00:07:51.949 --> 00:07:58.069 I was going to be there, and I guess my invite must have gotten 92 00:07:58.350 --> 00:08:01.699 lost in the in the mail, he stammered as the trunk closed. Oh, 93 00:08:03.420 --> 00:08:09.819 piggy, she smiled the serpentine smile. It didn't get lost in the 94 00:08:09.980 --> 00:08:13.410 mail. She closed the car door and gave a little way as the driver 95 00:08:13.569 --> 00:08:16.810 drove her away. Her office was an a spacious glass building with views of 96 00:08:16.930 --> 00:08:22.050 the park she grew up playing in. The baseball field stood empty. In 97 00:08:22.129 --> 00:08:26.129 the large tree that stood in the distance had ornamental kites that had unfortunately met 98 00:08:26.199 --> 00:08:33.159 their demise in its branches. She loved the view so many happy memories. 99 00:08:33.600 --> 00:08:37.840 She and her brothers grew up just around the corner. Kids those days were 100 00:08:37.879 --> 00:08:41.429 always getting into some sort of adventure, be it going to camp or France, 101 00:08:41.950 --> 00:08:46.029 having a Thanksgiving Pot luck of popcorn and jelly beans, or even putting 102 00:08:46.070 --> 00:08:52.350 on a Christmas play. Her childhood was filled with shiny moments of happiness and 103 00:08:52.990 --> 00:08:56.220 joy. It was when she was a child she knew what she wanted to 104 00:08:56.299 --> 00:09:01.899 be when she grew up, a psychiatrist. She was always listening to her 105 00:09:01.980 --> 00:09:05.659 friends and thought she was very helpful. She always knew that, being told 106 00:09:05.940 --> 00:09:11.330 everyone's secrets, she would have power over them, and that was something she 107 00:09:11.570 --> 00:09:18.409 always wanted to be powerful. Lucille, secretary, had already seated the patient 108 00:09:18.610 --> 00:09:22.809 and Lucille's office. Lucil entered the room, looking down at the patient's chart. 109 00:09:22.090 --> 00:09:30.000 Mr Charles Moron anxiety, depression, low self esteem. She read. 110 00:09:30.519 --> 00:09:35.919 Lucille sat behind her large desk adorn with awards from her career, her favorite 111 00:09:35.000 --> 00:09:39.590 being a large block of fossilized wood with her name on it, Jucia van 112 00:09:39.669 --> 00:09:46.389 Pelt Schroeder, psychiatrist of the year. Lucille looked up at the man who 113 00:09:46.389 --> 00:09:50.269 sat on the couch. He was an odd looking man, roughly her age, 114 00:09:50.629 --> 00:09:54.340 premature, Bald with just a few wisp of hair on his forehead. 115 00:09:54.899 --> 00:10:00.379 His face was round with tiny ears and tiny eyes. His mouth was set 116 00:10:00.419 --> 00:10:05.940 in a twist did grimace. So, Mr Moron, how May I help 117 00:10:05.980 --> 00:10:11.090 you? She smiled at placated grin of indifference. I I just don't believe 118 00:10:11.129 --> 00:10:16.610 in myself. His voice was a wool sweater, scratchy and off putting. 119 00:10:18.690 --> 00:10:22.679 Go on, lucile encouraged as she opened her notebook and began to write. 120 00:10:24.159 --> 00:10:28.360 Like I guess it started when I was a kid. I mean, I 121 00:10:28.440 --> 00:10:33.000 was liked and everyone knew me. I had good friends, but there was 122 00:10:33.360 --> 00:10:39.509 one kid who, no matter what I did, this this kid, made 123 00:10:39.509 --> 00:10:45.789 me feel completely worthless. Children can be so cruel. Lucile looked at her 124 00:10:45.789 --> 00:10:50.820 watch. Forty five minutes more and this woe is me and she can get 125 00:10:50.019 --> 00:10:54.580 on with her day. It just always felt that whenever I was close to 126 00:10:54.659 --> 00:11:00.139 achieving something that this kid, this girl, would yank it away from me. 127 00:11:00.899 --> 00:11:05.169 She would then convince me that everything would be different and take it away 128 00:11:05.250 --> 00:11:09.169 from me again and again and again. It got to the point that I 129 00:11:09.289 --> 00:11:16.570 feared trying anything, because everything I did I failed. Lucile looked up at 130 00:11:16.570 --> 00:11:22.639 Mr Morone. She could tell from the get go he was a real loser, 131 00:11:22.159 --> 00:11:26.519 and yet there was something familiar about him. To tell me about your 132 00:11:26.559 --> 00:11:31.559 parents, Lucille asked, knowing this would kill some time. Well, my 133 00:11:31.720 --> 00:11:35.590 father was a barber and I went into the same business, but my whole 134 00:11:35.629 --> 00:11:41.710 childhood felt like the adults around me were speaking a different language. I moved 135 00:11:41.750 --> 00:11:45.909 away with my dog, passed. So sad to hear about your dog. 136 00:11:46.070 --> 00:11:52.980 Dogs are truly wonderful. Lucille hated dogs. They were dirty creatures filled with 137 00:11:54.139 --> 00:11:58.940 germs. Where did you live that you moved away from here? Mr Morron 138 00:11:58.980 --> 00:12:03.330 looked up, eyes wide. Here Lucille cocked her head and leaned in closer. 139 00:12:05.330 --> 00:12:09.730 You really don't remember me, do you? His voice went cold and 140 00:12:09.850 --> 00:12:16.919 empty, his eyes small, welling up with tears. Why would I remember 141 00:12:16.960 --> 00:12:22.720 you? We've just met. Mr Moron quickly and angrily stood up anger building 142 00:12:22.759 --> 00:12:26.080 and exploding out of him. I was your brother's best friend, we were 143 00:12:26.200 --> 00:12:33.190 neighbors, and you, you made me this way. With that, Mr 144 00:12:33.230 --> 00:12:37.950 Charles Moron grabbed the trophy on Lucille's desk and smashed it into Lucille's face. 145 00:12:37.990 --> 00:12:41.230 As her memory caught up with her, but the bludgeoning blow, Charlie, 146 00:12:41.990 --> 00:12:48.299 she gasped before he pounded her head into pulp. Mr Charles Moron grinned, 147 00:12:48.580 --> 00:12:52.940 drop in the award on the ground, Crimson Blood Stain bean his yellow shirt. 148 00:12:54.940 --> 00:13:01.970 Who's the blockhead now? He laughed and smiled while looking out the window 149 00:13:01.090 --> 00:13:18.279 at the tree filled with guites. Who's the blockhead now? Wow, that 150 00:13:18.600 --> 00:13:24.080 was good. I like that. Hey, Dana, we're keeping him around. 151 00:13:24.279 --> 00:13:28.070 I like him. He's Nice. That's that was good. It was 152 00:13:28.149 --> 00:13:31.710 good. All right, let's go to the camp fire so I can tell 153 00:13:31.710 --> 00:13:39.870 you a little story about love and loss, mostly loss. It's down to 154 00:13:39.950 --> 00:13:50.500 folk, you know how we do. A young detective by the name of 155 00:13:50.580 --> 00:13:58.049 John Meadows. In addition to being a detective detective, he would also dabble 156 00:13:58.289 --> 00:14:07.210 in investigating local legends. Recently, he had been on the search for an 157 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:15.159 enchanted piano. The stories had been circulating around the south for many decades. 158 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:22.639 Allegedly, as soon as someone plays the piano, he or she has exactly 159 00:14:22.919 --> 00:14:31.750 nine days left to live. The doomed few appear to be ordinary people during 160 00:14:31.950 --> 00:14:43.019 day to day life, but when photographed they appear almost translucent. To make 161 00:14:43.100 --> 00:14:50.980 this tale all the more odd, the marked person feels soft and furry to 162 00:14:50.100 --> 00:14:58.649 the touch, almost like a rabbit. One day he finally came face to 163 00:14:58.889 --> 00:15:07.960 face with this mysterious piano and, refuse to believe the superstition, he sat 164 00:15:07.759 --> 00:15:13.000 and began to play. As he played a few notes of heart and soul, 165 00:15:13.360 --> 00:15:18.360 the only song he could remember being forced to play as a child, 166 00:15:18.320 --> 00:15:26.710 a collage of images flashed into his mind. First was a snake balanced on 167 00:15:26.830 --> 00:15:33.750 the limb of an old oak tree, the same tree that he would climb 168 00:15:33.750 --> 00:15:41.299 as a child, and it was that same tree that he and Susie Barlow 169 00:15:41.019 --> 00:15:50.210 shared their first kiss under after a school dance. Next, he saw an 170 00:15:50.210 --> 00:15:56.289 old newspaper with the headline about a mining accident. He remembers it well. 171 00:15:58.330 --> 00:16:07.000 Knew it had some significance, but just couldn't remember why. And last he 172 00:16:07.120 --> 00:16:18.230 saw a hooded figure, although its face was heavily shadowed. It appeared to 173 00:16:18.309 --> 00:16:26.190 be a badger. It stood in the doorway of a dive bar that appeared 174 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:33.700 to be located in the heart of a very busy city. What could all 175 00:16:33.980 --> 00:16:40.659 this mean? He stopped playing and sat behind the piano, pondering the visions 176 00:16:40.860 --> 00:16:48.049 in his mind, and he waited. Nothing felt strange, nothing felt off. 177 00:16:51.090 --> 00:16:57.210 So he stood and left, shrugging off the whole situation. Maybe the 178 00:16:57.250 --> 00:17:04.559 chords of that old song opened a door in his subconscious, because legends and 179 00:17:04.880 --> 00:17:14.200 Lore are just that right, stories willed into existence from the darkest reaches of 180 00:17:14.319 --> 00:17:18.670 our own subconscious. As he was walking back to his car, he hears 181 00:17:18.710 --> 00:17:26.829 a voice from the past call his name, John, John Meadows. He 182 00:17:27.069 --> 00:17:36.380 turns and his is stunned. It's little Susie Barlow, and my how daddy's 183 00:17:36.500 --> 00:17:45.329 little girl has grown. The years had been very kind to her. He 184 00:17:45.890 --> 00:17:55.049 stood jawed for a moment. Susie, Susie Barlow. No one's called me 185 00:17:55.170 --> 00:17:59.440 see Zie in twenty five years. But yeah, I'm Susanne now, but 186 00:17:59.960 --> 00:18:08.160 still barlow. My goodness, you look healthy. Not a great response, 187 00:18:08.559 --> 00:18:15.750 but it seemed better than his first thought of dear God or those real but 188 00:18:17.630 --> 00:18:23.309 carefully choosing your words is what detectives do. The two chatted for a moment 189 00:18:23.549 --> 00:18:29.619 on the corner. The conversation seemed to drownd out the excessive noise emulating from 190 00:18:29.619 --> 00:18:34.539 the heart of the busy city around them. He doesn't remember what was said 191 00:18:36.180 --> 00:18:41.690 or what they laughed about. He was, admittedly distracted by the sight of 192 00:18:41.730 --> 00:18:49.529 his first love, now groaned. Now groan dressed in red leather with matching 193 00:18:49.690 --> 00:18:55.609 snake skin boots and arguably well beyond the legal limit of cleavage to be shown 194 00:18:55.650 --> 00:19:03.160 in public. But at some point during the conversation, numbers were exchanged and 195 00:19:03.359 --> 00:19:11.309 a date was made next Thursday. For the next nine days, John Would 196 00:19:11.309 --> 00:19:22.950 Day dream non stop about susy and all that she had become. Thursday arrived 197 00:19:22.069 --> 00:19:29.259 and they met for drinks as planned. It was a little dive bar that 198 00:19:29.660 --> 00:19:34.819 susy was the manager of, was kind of her happy place they embraced. 199 00:19:34.859 --> 00:19:42.450 When he arrived, she hummed softly in his ear. Ah, just like 200 00:19:42.650 --> 00:19:49.410 I remembered. You were always so soft to hug, like Huggin a bunny. 201 00:19:53.480 --> 00:19:57.559 They caught up on events that had transpired over the years. They took 202 00:19:57.559 --> 00:20:03.920 a couple of selfies to document this reunion the they gave up after a while 203 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:10.869 because he always seemed to move just as the picture was taken. Ah Again, 204 00:20:11.630 --> 00:20:15.269 I mean, I look amazing, but you look like a ghost a 205 00:20:15.430 --> 00:20:19.750 seriously, I can see right through you in this one. Talk ultimately led 206 00:20:19.869 --> 00:20:30.019 to the story of the talk ultimately led to the story of the legend of 207 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:36.490 the enchanted piano, and John shared his experiences and his visions, the oddity 208 00:20:36.690 --> 00:20:41.650 of a snake in the old oak tree and immediately crossing paths with a person 209 00:20:41.730 --> 00:20:48.410 that had shared a significant memory tied to that old tree. He mentioned the 210 00:20:48.450 --> 00:20:56.400 old newspaper article about the mining accident and Susie's mood seemed to change there. 211 00:20:57.039 --> 00:21:03.549 That's right, he knew there was some significance to that event. SUSIE's family 212 00:21:04.230 --> 00:21:12.589 owned that mine and right after the accident she had moved. That's why he 213 00:21:12.869 --> 00:21:21.700 never saw her again after that. She had taken the money left behind by 214 00:21:21.819 --> 00:21:26.819 her family's estate and moved to the city. I just had to get away 215 00:21:26.859 --> 00:21:32.930 from that Podo town in that Po Dunk area. I came here because somehow 216 00:21:33.369 --> 00:21:37.690 the sounds of this big city seemed to drownd out the screams of my family 217 00:21:38.089 --> 00:21:45.410 crushed to death under all that podunk Earth, never to be recovered. He 218 00:21:45.650 --> 00:21:52.480 wanted to stay and listen console her in her grief, but nature called. 219 00:21:53.079 --> 00:21:59.400 They were several drinks in and he had yet to escape to the bathroom, 220 00:21:59.640 --> 00:22:04.509 but now was his chance. She was beautiful and seemed attracted to him. 221 00:22:08.109 --> 00:22:14.670 She certainly would understand that he didn't want to take away from that Grizzly retelling 222 00:22:14.789 --> 00:22:21.420 of the events that transpired by him squirming in his chair fearing that he would 223 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:29.019 relieve himself and his pants. Hold that thought. I need to Piss. 224 00:22:30.250 --> 00:22:37.849 Always the right words at the right moment. That's what detectives do. On 225 00:22:38.009 --> 00:22:41.289 his way to the can, he tried to piece it all together. He 226 00:22:41.529 --> 00:22:45.640 was a detective, after all. It's what he does for a living. 227 00:22:47.799 --> 00:22:53.359 And as he stood at the yearnal, he just kept thinking about it's Susie 228 00:22:56.039 --> 00:23:03.630 and her breasts and her smile. Mostly are breast. I mean seriously, 229 00:23:03.670 --> 00:23:12.500 they were unnaturally perfect. And then the door opened. In the doorway stood 230 00:23:12.539 --> 00:23:22.579 a dark hooded figure. It's slowly lowered its hood and he stood face to 231 00:23:22.700 --> 00:23:33.369 face with a human sized Badger. He felt nothing as its teeth plunged into 232 00:23:33.450 --> 00:23:41.839 his neck, but he remembers the warmth of his blood flowing over his body, 233 00:23:41.880 --> 00:23:48.200 or maybe it was pissed, because he was like midstream when it all 234 00:23:48.279 --> 00:23:56.230 happened. And then darkness. And to this day we still don't know why 235 00:23:56.910 --> 00:24:04.869 a piano causes people to see flashes of their past that lead the way to 236 00:24:06.029 --> 00:24:12.980 their death. Nor do we know why their demise comes in the form of 237 00:24:14.019 --> 00:24:22.779 a giant humanoid Badger. It is ever made any sense to anyone that has 238 00:24:22.859 --> 00:24:29.769 heard this story, but we do know this. It doesn't have to, 239 00:24:30.650 --> 00:24:49.160 because any could legend. Shouldn't there doesn't that feel better? Awesome? Thank 240 00:24:49.240 --> 00:24:56.589 you so much for tuning in once again to another spectacular episode of down to 241 00:24:56.789 --> 00:25:02.829 foot. Excuse me, I'm trying to write. What the hell kind of 242 00:25:03.069 --> 00:25:25.569 Westworld both Dana, will you and chat to please take Mr Brock whatever down 243 00:25:25.650 --> 00:25:30.650 to wipe these memories again. Thank you. My Sincerest Apologies, ladies and 244 00:25:30.849 --> 00:25:36.960 Gentlemen, but at least you've got to show. This week it appears that 245 00:25:37.079 --> 00:25:41.759 our first story was written and performed by the infamous Prajordan, whom, contrary 246 00:25:41.799 --> 00:25:47.200 to what Dana thinks, is not a girl on a bench. That segment 247 00:25:47.359 --> 00:25:52.309 received quite lovely readings from the audience clone. Maybe we'll keep him around for 248 00:25:52.470 --> 00:25:56.430 a while, as long as he doesn't expect to get scale for this. 249 00:25:56.750 --> 00:26:02.670 You know the deal with the other guy.
