Comment on About The Bat Segundo Show by Roger Raffee

Hello About the Bat, When you are reviewing books again, would you be interested in reviewing my book, Devil Out Of Texas ? I just posted it for sale as an ebook in Amazon. Please let me know what I need to do or send you in order to have it reviewed. It's 449 pages. Here is the brief synopsis I posted with the book: In the summer of 1973, a fourteen year old kid spends time with his grandfather and his friends, George Burns, Jack Benny, Georgie Jessel, and others, as they play cards at the Hillcrest Country Club near Beverly Hills, California. He later sits down to listen as his grandfather tells him the action-packed tale of his great-grandfather, the first Jewish Texas Ranger, and how his grandfather came to Hollywood to become one of the pioneers of the movie industry. The young man learns about how his grandfather came to be friends with the early stars of the silver screen, like Tom Mix, William S. Hart, Lionel Barrymore, and Doug Fairbanks, and his grandfather's association with the great Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa, the famous lawman Wyatt Earp, and other fascinating characters. Thank you, -Roger Raffee

Thank you! The Jackson/Brown mashup was pure heaven. Just how the guitar-riff replaces the 'Yeah yeah' after every 'Get up, get over', wow and wow again!

Hi We are excited about reaching out to you Our new book “One Last Hurrah” allows the reader to experience a story of inspiration, inject their own experiences, unlike other books, so that the reader documents their own life story. This is, not only, our story about a former professional wrestler overcoming loss, but his journey in finding purpose and peace. The book, “One Last Hurrah” , documents medical miracles, overcoming abuse and experiences with drug addiction. Mark and Brenda , both, come from broken homes and have found their calling in life working with youth/children for over 15 years. Having come from divorce, Mark and Brenda had to decide if they were going to break the family cycles of abuse. They dedicated themselves to helping abused and abandoned children. We feel we can relate to a large audience who feel lost and discouraged. -- Mark Smith Brenda Smith (903)263-8067 (903)263-8070

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 23:36:58 +0000

[…] Does Mitchell, aside from his literary talents, have the ability to prophecy the unlikely names of future podcasters?!? The far-less-magical explanation is that the real-life “Bat Segundo” adopted the moniker of the unreal-life DJ in a blatant attempt to attract Mitchell as a guest to the podcast. (The ploy worked.)

Gosh, I love your show, but this has to be the first time it has snuffed my desire to read the author's book! Ms Rakoff just seemed to bang on and on about her white privilege, and then refuses to properly consider how it may have affected her. Annoying.

Looking forward to city on fire. Actually, more interested in what comes after. No first novel is a magnum opus. Hopefully he's not a one trick pony, one and done, get in then cash out. That's the real litmus test for being a fraud.

Corporations like Google and Facebook also collect data, which can be subpoenaed by the government and is often traded with other data brokers. I probably should have made "the government and corporations" clearer in that interlocutory flurry, bit it is discussed throughout the entire talk. Thanks for pointing that out, Shelley!

Strangely, I just watched this film for the first time last month. What struck me most was a kind of roughness in its texture (even in its characters' teeth!) that gave it a grit oddly lacking in more modern movies.

Sat, 21 Dec 2013 00:39:47 +0000

Excellent interview on a variety of fascinating subjects. However, when he started to criticize the DT Max bio, I was really hoping that he would address what I thought was its greatest flaw: quoting extensively from DFW's fiction as if it were somehow an accurate one-to-one reflection of the subject's life, like where Max quotes stuff from Joelle Van Dyne in IJ as if she were literally Mary Karr. This seemed not only lazy, but also a weaselly attempt to provide "sourcing" for material that Max had not actually worked to uncover.

I've listened to this recording like over ten times now. He's an interesting figure not only in the academic world, ( which I know nothing about!) but in his performances in front of an audience (seminar on YouTube) or in this case imagined audience. My first episode was Wayne talking at a film seminar with Thomas Elsassaer. He's a very engaging speaker and obviously a very clever person.
