For the primary time since early July, San Diego County case charge fell beneath the brink to fall off the state’s tracking listing. Additionally, a brand new paintings by means of a neighborhood theater corporate honors and eulogizes the lives misplaced right through the pandemic. Plus, President Trump stated he’s in opposition to offering investment to lend a hand the USA Postal Carrier to be able to sabotage efforts to enlarge mail-in balloting. We talk about threats to the November election. As well as, army households are nonetheless caught in limbo because the Army tries to include the coronavirus. And, the Oceanside Global Movie Pageant had giant plans for its 10th anniversary, now the ones plans are scrapped for a digital enjoy. After all, on this week’s Summer time Tune Collection: The Greyboy Allstars releases its first studio album in seven years.

Speaker 1: 00:00 Sooner or later in the precise route as San Diego’s COVID case charge falls, however it is been coming down lovely regularly over the past couple of weeks. In order that’s, that is been an growth that now we have observed. I am Maureen Kavanaugh with Mark bitter. That is KPBS mid day version. The presidential race is heating up. So our issues about election threats

Speaker 2: 00:29 From attainable cyber assaults to loss of alternatives for protected in user balloting, uh, to, uh, the president in the hunt for to undermine the equity and legitimacy of the election.

Speaker 1: 00:41 San Diego theater team items songs of remembrance for the ones regulations to COVID-19 and our summer time track collection options a very long time. San Diego favourite the grey boy, all stars. That is a head on mid day version.

Speaker 1: 01:00 Oh, welcome. Bit of fine information emerge from San Diego’s newest replace on COVID-19 instances, day-to-day numbers of certain instances. Wednesday dropped beneath the state’s watch listing threshold. It is the first time we were given beneath 100 instances according to 100,00Zero citizens since San Diego was once positioned at the watch listing at first of July KPBS well being reporter, Taran mento explains what that drop manner or does not imply for the potentialities of easing restrictions in San Diego and Taran. Welcome to this system. Thanks, Maureen. To begin with, how a lot beneath that threshold did San Diego get on Wednesday? Proper. So the case charge dropped to 94.1 new instances according to 100,00Zero citizens. The state, as you discussed to your intro, needs to us to be at not more than 100 new instances according to 100,00Zero citizens. So as regards to six issues beneath what we wish, you realize, however we now we have observed the case charge quantity differ up and down up to now.

Speaker 1: 02:00 Um, so it is going to most likely alternate everyday, however you realize, each everybody’s hoping those americawill nonetheless keep beneath that 100 according to 100,00Zero threshold. And when was once the final time we had a favorable case quantity as little as this, we were given at the watch listing in early July. And in order that implies that in early July, we went above 100 according to 100,000. Um, so it is been some time we are speaking 5, six weeks right here that now we have been constantly, um, at above above 100. And I feel now we have been at 150, 154 instances according to 100,00Zero citizens earlier than, you realize, later in July, however it is been coming down lovely regularly over the past couple of weeks. In order that’s, that is been an growth that now we have observed, however this isn’t the positivity charge, right kind. That is the entire quantity of people that take a look at certain. So conceivably the velocity may well be suffering from the choice of exams happening, proper? The target market is listening to positivity

Speaker 3: 03:00 Price case charge hospitalization, like such a lot of charges that we stay listening to. So the case charge is the choice of showed instances, showed certain effects over a two week length. Uh, that is that is divided for, for each 100,00Zero citizens and that is the reason a simplified rationalization of the calculation. And so the velocity may well be influenced by means of checking out. Positive. Um, however you realize, except for for 2 or 3 days over the past month, um, you realize, after we noticed very low checking out round 4,00Zero day-to-day exams reported or very top checking out round 16,00Zero day-to-day exams reporting, the variability has in reality been round 5,600 to just a little over 9,00Zero information exams reported with a handful of days above 10,000. Sorry if that was once complicated for the target market to practice, however you realize, it is a couple of month in the past, the County and state, you realize, additionally did not prohibit who may well be examined. So it is restricted to those that are very ill or, or at top possibility, no less than the ones, they took precedence. You realize, that means we’re checking out individuals who may well be much more likely to be causative. Our purpose is to peer a 67, about 6,700 exams an afternoon. And in recent times, for essentially the most phase now we have been close to or above that

Speaker 1: 04:09 Now in the future for San Diego to be beneath threshold numbers does now not get us off the watch listing. As I comprehend it, what would we need to do to get off that listing?

Speaker 3: 04:20 So simply to get off the watch listing, you need to day beneath the brink for, uh, or on the threshold for 3 days. Now this can be a little bit sophisticated as a result of we pay attention about, we heard about that reporting glitch. Um, the state can have now not correctly reported the entire instances to the counties and that simply brought about a complete bunch of misunderstanding. Now, the County says that they have won all of the ones backdated case positives, um, and perhaps there will be a couple of trickling in right here and there over the following couple of days. After which the state, I consider says that the entirety will have to be more or less up to the moment as of the top of this week. So we nonetheless have to attend and notice if we do handle this, this, uh, beneath this threshold for the following couple of days, what’s going to occur? Will the state let us get off the, the watch listing? Um, in order that’s one thing we are nonetheless more or less a bit unclear on

Speaker 1: 05:08 What day-to-day certain take a look at quantity do we need to keep beneath to stick beneath that threshold of 100 according to 100,00Zero resumes?

Speaker 3: 05:16 So dr. Wilmer, Lou and the county’s public well being officer has stated for some time now that, um, if we keep, if we file not more than 240 instances an afternoon for 2 weeks, we will get off the listing and keep there. So 240 is the purpose. I imply, however in the event you glance again, you’ll be able to see that there was many, a days just lately the place now we have now not been, um, at, or beneath that quantity, however we nonetheless had been less than now we have been up to now. So the County says that is what allowed us to, to, um, cut back our case charge. But when we need to, to in reality keep there with self belief, dr. Wilma Wooten has stated 240 or fewer new day-to-day is what we want to keep at and hang there for 2 weeks.

Speaker 1: 06:00 Governor Newsome introduced some hopeful information for the state right through his COVID briefing the day prior to this, what did he file?

Speaker 3: 06:07 So he centered so much at the, um, hospitalizations and, and those who are in ICU for COVID. And we noticed decreases, um, about 19% with hospitalizations over the past two weeks and reduces of ICU admissions, I consider 16%. And so that is, um, this can be a in reality, in reality, um, simple, simple quantity to trace. And it is in reality, uh, it in reality tells it provides us a greater sampling of them instances, as a result of as you discussed, that may more or less differ with checking out. Um, so that is in reality, in reality a excellent indicator of the way we are making improvements to, um, on, um, decreasing the unfold of COVID by means of seeing those numbers pass down. So he was once more than happy about that. And now we have observed equivalent tendencies right here in San Diego are hospitalizations. Collection of hospitalizations have, have fallen as smartly.

Speaker 1: 06:55 And getting again to San Diego for a, type of the whole image, what had been the brand new numbers on deaths and outbreaks?

Speaker 3: 07:02 So we are nonetheless seeing, you realize, deaths are nonetheless, we are nonetheless seeing them reported and we are nonetheless seeing outbreaks now outbreaks. I will be able to say that, um, for some time we had been doing smartly and what San Diego needs us to persist with is not more than six group outbreaks reported in every week length. Neatly, now we have been method above that for a very long time. And so, you realize, we reached 40 outbreaks reported in a single week length, after which we had been, we had been coming down, we are nonetheless more or less coming down, however we are nonetheless lovely top. Just like the County reported 26 group outbreaks, um, had been showed within the final seven days. So nonetheless very top, however a bit bit higher than we noticed previous. That is, we are nonetheless seeing other folks. Um, we are nonetheless seeing studies of other folks of death. Uh, there was once, I consider, six or 8 reported, um, over a few days, on a daily basis, this week now we have observed huge numbers, um, fewer numbers. Um, however you realize, persons are nonetheless death from this.

Speaker 1: 07:56 The brand new checking out web page opened the day prior to this on the San Ysidro border. What’s the County hoping to succeed in with that new web page

Speaker 3: 08:03 Offering as much as 200 day-to-day duties for people who find themselves approved to move over from Mexico into the usthese are generally very important employees. And we all know that hospices within the South Bay had been crushed with a affected person’s COVID sufferers. And I had a top share of those who have just lately traveled to Mexico. So we, that is an effort by means of the County to offer extra assets on the border to only supply, um, supply lend a hand the place, the place the metrics are appearing it is wanted.

Speaker 1: 08:31 I have been talking with KPBS well being reporter, Karen mento, and Taran. Thanks.

Speaker 3: 08:35 Thanks.

Speaker 1: 08:53 The pandemic is going past statistics and

Speaker 4: 08:56 Charts. For plenty of households, their worlds had been totally devastated by means of regulations. One native theater corporate is popping their reminiscences and tales into unique songs to honor, and eulogize lives misplaced right through the pandemic here is KPBS arts editor and manufacturer Julia Dickson Evans with the tale

Speaker 5: 09:15 Blind spot collective, a San Diego primarily based theater corporate has made a reputation for themselves lately with inclusive web page explicit works, together with being featured within the LA Jolla playhouses with out partitions competition. This summer time they have got introduced refractions, which is a challenge that creates human anthems, unique songs written to honor lives misplaced right through the pandemic. The primary track blindspot produced venerated the reminiscence of Juliet Davis. Her son, TAVI McNeil advised Davis his tale to songwriters, Brian, Barbara and Kendrick dial, who wrote mama goes to paintings it out

Speaker 4: 10:03 [inaudible]

Speaker 5: 10:03 Neatly, that pandemic has sidelined blind spots, operations. In some ways, creative director, Blake McCarty stated it has additionally created a type of intersection of the values. The corporate strives for

Speaker 4: 10:15 It, demanding situations, acting artists to in reality reimagine what it’s. Theater can seem like.

Speaker 5: 10:21 They have got additionally lengthy been focused on telling true first user documentary taste tales, verbatim theater or documentary theater is a particular type of nonfiction, drama, and playwriting that comes to accomplishing interviews and reworking them into script. Throughout the pandemic, when circle of relatives is suffering from losses or illness transform statistics spot sought after to position the ones talents to paintings and honor sufferers by means of telling their tales.

Speaker 4: 10:49 Each and every piece of discussion is one thing this is, it’s actual and original from an interview supply. And so each persona is primarily based particularly on an actual user and their true and actual reports

Speaker 5: 11:13 Pulling from tales and interviews is helping humanize and memorialize one thing larger than only one user.

Speaker 4: 11:21 Documentaries don’t seem to be reality. They’re nonetheless any person’s viewpoint. The facility to in fact like include any person’s truth with out making that truth type of monolithic by any means.

Speaker 5: 11:33 Shelina Hafner one of the vital artists main the challenge stated storytelling is significant whilst communities are suffering with grief, however it is a position that she and plenty of different performers are lacking presently with phases shuttered. A minimum of for me, our activity is to create empathy and it is to inform tales. Um, and numerous us, proper, don’t seem to be doing

Speaker 4: 11:54 That. However with the truth that all of those

Speaker 5: 12:04 Numbers that had been flooded with on tv and we are shedding the, the person

Speaker 4: 12:11 On this second,

Speaker 5: 12:13 You realize, we see like 300 new instances the day prior to this and we predict, Oh, that is so much. You realize, and other folks get, I feel that we are shedding who the ones persons are. The gang pairs, grieving households with songwriters and performers to supply unique track with lyrics taken at once from the interviews and conversations with LA.

Speaker 4: 12:35 I neglected the sound of your voice. Each and every echo of your knowledge, sing songs of your any person saving me from myself. I do know you are nonetheless gazing me.

Speaker 5: 12:43 They first amassed tales from households the use of one-on-one interviews. It is a approach to get to grasp an individual past the statistics, the issues they liked, their catchphrases and what the family and friends take into accout about them. Additionally they ask what sort of track the individual preferred and the varieties of track the circle of relatives listens to in combination within the absence of public funerals. This procedure parallels the human want to eulogize their family members. When those songs are shared, they put a face and a tale to the human toll of the individual.

Speaker 4: 13:13 You continue to really feel you continue to are living. You continue to, nonetheless, nonetheless love.

Speaker 5: 13:24 TAVI McNeil stated his mom Juliet had raised him with track and liked track right through her existence. The track was once precisely what it had to be.

Speaker 4: 13:54 That was once KPBS arts editor, Julia Dickson Evans blind spot collective continues to be accumulating tales from households who want to honor family members. You’ll be able to learn how to get I am Mark Sauer with Maureen Kavanaugh and you are paying attention to KPBS mid day version. The Biden Harris democratic price tag is about, however more or less 80 days out the November third election turns out imperiled. The president nowadays stated he’s going to block Democrats request for help to the postal carrier. Social media is besieged by means of international trolls and COVID-19 fears cloud in-person balloting. Becoming a member of me to inspect this fraught election yr is Richard Hasson professor of legislation and political science on the college of California, Irvine and creator of election meltdown, grimy tips, mistrust, and the danger to American democracy. Welcome to noon version. It is nice to be with you. President of Trump stated this morning on Fox information he will block the Democrats push for postal carrier

Speaker 6: 14:52 Investment. Let’s pay attention that

Speaker 7: 14:53 They would like $25 billion billion for the submit workplace. Now they want that cash to be able to have the submit workplace paintings. So it could actually take all of those tens of millions and tens of millions of ballots. Now, within the interim, they are not getting there by means of the best way, the ones are simply two pieces, but when they do not get the ones two pieces, that implies you’ll be able to’t have common mail and balloting as a result of they are now not provided to have it.

Speaker 6: 15:16 What is your response to this professor to be able to have a right kind election in the midst of a virulent disease, many of us are going to need to vote by means of mail and announcing that you need to make it more difficult for other folks to vote by means of mail in the midst of a virulent disease and doing so for political causes is profoundly being concerned and is solely a part of a trend of the president making statements which can be supposed to make it more difficult to vote and to undermine other folks’s self belief within the equity of the election. Now, is there the rest to Trump’s claims that unhealthy actors and 400 home will counterfeit ballots and physician ballots and metal ballots are dedicated different election crimes referring to mail and balloting. So I feel that the quantity of voter fraud in the USA is rather low when election crimes do occur, they are much more likely to occur the use of absentee ballots than in user balloting.

Speaker 6: 16:05 Uh, besides the total charge of absentee poll fraud is low. And by means of regarding absentee ballots, I am speaking about absentee and mail in ballots as a result of in my use of the phrases, they are in reality the similar factor. And, uh, these kind of absentee poll crimes or prosecutions had been ones that will now not impact the end result of an election. I undoubtedly suppose shall we see remoted circumstances of ballots being tampered with, however to check out to tamper with, uh, an election thru absentee ballots on any wide-scale can be simply detected. And so I do not believe that it in reality items an important possibility to the integrity of the election. And also you posted a New York instances column for your election legislation weblog this week concerning the blue shift. What’s that? And what is it must do with Trump tweeting that we should know the effects on election evening. So one of the vital issues that I’ve is that given this shift to mail and voting, and particularly given Trump’s statements, that are discouraging Republicans from balloting by means of mail and inspiring Democrats to take action.

Speaker 6: 17:09 And that we’d be in a state of affairs the place you’ll be able to believe, say a swing state like Pennsylvania or Wisconsin. Trump is forward within the balloting on election evening, as a result of the ones are the ballots which can be going to be counted. First are going to be the ones in-person ballots. It takes longer to procedure absentee ballots to ensure they are achieved as it should be, and that the entire anti-fraud provisions are in position. So you’ll be able to believe a state of affairs the place Trump is forward on election evening. Then we get to perhaps every week and even longer later, however the entire ballots are counted and Biden has received the election. And the interim Trump may just declare victory in keeping with the election evening effects and take a look at to make claims as he has up to now that any ballots counted after election day are by some means fraudulent. Those don’t seem to be legitimate claims. We by no means have election effects, uh, occur.

Speaker 6: 17:58 Uh, in an instant there are projections of what will occur in California. It takes weeks to depend the ballots. And one of the vital issues that we see as Bal even earlier than Trump began making those feedback is that as a result of Democrats have a tendency to vote later, uh, the ballots which can be counted later have extra democratic votes in them. That is why we noticed seven congressional races in Southern California within the 2018 elections get started with election evening leads for Republican congressional applicants. And in all of the ones races, Democrats had been in the long run declared the winner as the entire ballots had been counted. That is what the blue shift is. It is the truth that now not simplest are we able to doubtlessly be expecting the overall election effects to be other from the election evening effects, they are a lot more more likely to prefer Democrats. There may be not anything nefarious about it is only the balloting patterns of the way other folks have a tendency to vote and what we see in the case of election effects.

Speaker 4: 18:49 What about international interference this time round now we have? We adopted the Mueller file, an in depth research of Russian interference in 2016 intelligence brokers say it is taking place once more? There may be studies of interference from China in opposition to Trump. How significantly are you taking those threats?

Speaker 6: 19:04 Neatly, there have been other varieties of interference in 2016. One more or less interference is incorrect information or makes an attempt to fire up a social bother. We noticed the Russians do this. I feel this is troubling. Despite the fact that I do suppose that the platforms like Fb and Twitter are taking some steps to check out to root out what they name coordinated, inauthentic habits, this concept of, uh, you realize, the use of bots or in a different way sending out messages that do not in reality replicate actual other folks, however as a substitute one of those political operation, I am extra fascinated with different varieties of interference. Or take into accout in 2016 we noticed the stealing and leaking of democratic birthday party paperwork. So we may see that occur once more. Uh, you realize, we do not know who is stealing what paperwork and what could be launched. And likewise what we noticed in 2016 was once the Russian executive probing election registration databases in all 50 States, looking to, uh, display I feel that they’d some skill to get right of entry to the ones databases.

Speaker 6: 20:03 Uh, no knowledge was once modified in the case of the result of the 2016 election, however I feel it was once an strive to check out to undermine other folks’s self belief within the procedure. Having a look ahead to the 2020 election. One of the most nightmares that I spent out in, uh, election meltdown is the opportunity of an influence grid hack in a democratic town like Detroit in a swing state like Michigan. We shouldn’t have excellent procedures in position if there may be that more or less disruption. And I feel COVID is on everybody’s thoughts, however I feel we will be able to’t set aside the possibility of there to be issues like international, uh, interference, uh, cyber assaults, such things as that still happening as we get nearer to the election

Speaker 4: 20:41 And far is being stated about voter suppression, like drastic cuts and the choice of polling puts in sure towns. Uh, do

Speaker 6: 20:48 You concern about that? So I used to be already fearful concerning the election earlier than COVID hit. Now after all, one of the vital causes we are seeing a polling position closures is that it is very exhausting to personnel polling puts, particularly whilst you depend on older American citizens are maximum prone to the virus, a wide variety of causes to fret that the election, you realize, is one, that is not going to seem like our conventional election. I feel we want to be sure that there are protected tactics to vote each in user and by means of mail, particularly with those issues over vote by means of mail. We would possibly finally end up seeing extra other folks balloting in user and with the entire varieties of polling position closures and the procedures that want to be installed position like social distancing and cleansing of balloting apparatus that should occur on account of the pandemic. I feel we will have to look ahead to the possibility of lengthy strains, which is all the time a possible in puts, however I feel we may see it in additional puts.

Speaker 6: 21:37 That is why in-person early balloting could be a super choice for some individuals who neither accept as true with the mail or are prepared to attend till election day to peer what the ones strains are going to seem like. Neatly, how nice a danger is all this to the election, uh, put your, your a crystal ball faucet on. What are you fearing? What assists in keeping you up at evening? What may occur on November third? Neatly, the entirety now we have mentioned, uh, is the type of stuff that assists in keeping me up at evening from attainable cyber assaults, to a loss of alternatives for protected in user balloting, uh, to, uh, the president in the hunt for to undermine the equity and legitimacy of the election. I feel what’s in all probability to result in what can be thought to be by means of many to be a a success election is that if the election isn’t specifically shut, as a result of if the election could be very shut, then you realize, there is going to be combating proceedings doubtlessly, uh, immediately protests over arcane laws for a way ballots are forged and counted.

Speaker 6: 22:31 And that’s the reason one thing that in reality we aren’t smartly provided for 20 years after the Florida debacle, which ended in the Splendid court docket’s resolution in Bush as opposed to Gore, we are nonetheless now not ready to handle most of these, uh, election troubles. And naturally it is a lot worse now with larger polarization and the upward push of social media, the place the media is gazing the electorate are gazing the entire global can be gazing quite a bit to hide right here between now and November third. I have been talking with political science and legislation professor Richard Hasson of the college of California, Irvine and creator of election meltdown, grimy tips, mistrust, and the danger to American democracy. Thank you very a lot. Thanks for the chance.

Speaker 1: 23:14 Numerous army households had been left in limbo as they wait to transport to new bases. The Army imposed a prevent motion this spring on account of the pandemic. Now it is looking to restart commute, however now not everyone is being allowed to transport but. KPBS, army reporter, Steve Walsh studies. That is our house for the instant.

Speaker 6: 23:37 Adaptability is a part of Army existence for Kylie McFerrin in her circle of relatives. That is intended residing in an RV at a campground within the mountains.

Speaker 8: 23:46 It is about an hour clear of the sea the place her husband continues to paintings at Naval base Cornado in San Diego County.

Speaker 5: 23:53 It’s been tough. There were numerous instances the place you need to inform your self, that is simplest brief. This isn’t ceaselessly. Um, you realize, the next day to come’s a brand new day.

Speaker 8: 24:03 The McFerrin offered their house. When her husband won orders, moving him to Maryland. They had been pressured to transport out in July, however by means of then, the Army had put his transfer on hang with two younger youngsters and no position to are living. Their most suitable option was once to shop for an RV and seek for campground.

Speaker 5: 24:19 Discovering extra everlasting housing in an RV is a bit difficult. A large number of puts require a club. Um, some puts, um, are simply booked as a result of the general public make those plans months and years prematurely. And we’re looking to do it final minute.

Speaker 8: 24:34 Her circle of relatives is one in every of hundreds stuck up within the army prevent motion order, which went into impact in March in July. The Pentagon started loosening restrictions about 40% of the 230 U S army installations international have reopened as a result of they met necessities like having fewer COVID-19 instances for no less than 14 days. Assistant commander of Army body of workers, captain Derek tranq says base could also be had to be running nearer to them.

Speaker 7: 25:01 There cannot be a neighborhood commute restriction. Uh, they have got to have very important products and services like childcare,

Speaker 8: 25:09 San Diego Naval bases are nonetheless at the crimson listing despite the fact that. The Army is making you,

Speaker 7: 25:14 You might have a waiver procedure. We had been ready to, uh, get sailors moved as a result of they’d a hardship or as a result of they had been very important to the venture of the brand new command

Speaker 8: 25:23 Waivers have helped dramatically transparent the Army’s backlog. The Army initially anticipated. It might take till someday subsequent yr to transport the just about 24,00Zero ready households. Now it expects to have the remainder of the ones households at their new bases by means of November. The choice of instances of Corona virus within the army has plateaued within the final week or so despite the fact that coronavirus instances were surging thru July, even because the Army was once pushing to get extra sailors transferring tranq says the Army is satisfied it is reopening

Speaker 7: 25:53 As a result of we’re taking the ones steps to stay our other folks protected. Uh, I consider it’s permitting us to make those strikes, while earlier than, um, everyone stopped transferring in reality was once the precise solution as a result of we knew so little

Speaker 8: 26:07 Nonetheless figuring out why one base is open to commute. And every other base is closed, can also be complicated for army households early within the pandemic, the Pentagon prevent list COVID instances by means of base in San Diego County. Together with the Army, the Marines West coast bootcamp continues to be crimson flag, however the Marines are loose to switch out and in of camp. Pendleton Army partner, Kelly co-pack is in the end on her approach to the East coast from San Diego. She spoke from the street.

Speaker 5: 26:35 No one gave the impression to in reality know what knowledge to present us or what recommendation to present us or that form of factor. And numerous hurry up

Speaker 9: 26:44 And wait.

Speaker 8: 26:44 It is just like the McFerrin is the, copex additionally introduced an RV after they wanted a spot to are living once they offered their area in San Diego. Now they’re in the end touring move nation to Virginia with their seven month outdated with the assistance of a Army waver,

Speaker 9: 26:58 That will be extremely useful and recommended to a long term pandemic or different excessive state of affairs, perhaps to permit for case control on this

Speaker 8: 27:10 That will give households some degree of touch. Like when they have got sailors deployed, the copex can be required to self isolate for 14 days at their new base. The RV will make that more uncomplicated whilst different households look ahead to their flip to hit the street. Steve Walsh, KPBS information. I am Mark Sauer with Maureen Kavanaugh. You are paying attention to noon version on KPBS. The Oceanside world movie competition had giant plans for its 10 yr anniversary, however they needed to be scrapped because the competition was once pressured to transport on-line. KPBS arts reporter, Beth Huck Amando speaks with the gala’s, managing director, Lou Niles about what to anticipate

Speaker 9: 27:57 The Oceanside world movie competition has a anniversary, a milestone to have a good time this yr. You might be turning 10, however deal with one of the crucial headaches you might have had with this actual yr and the Corona virus.

So now we have needed to pass digital discover other platforms. So we are fortunate to discovered one and we are as regards to in a position to move.

So we’re simply scrambling to get the entirety loaded into the platform and get it in a position to ship those nice movies to the general public.

Speaker 9: 28:50 So I’ve to admit the primary movie of yours that I went to observe was once honor, and the outlet more or less a drone shot of this beautiful panorama. And I feel being in quarantine and seeing that unexpectedly, I felt like, guy, I in reality need to pass outdoor or I need to pass to a cinema and notice those photographs on a large display. So a variety of your movies do have this in reality nice sense of the expanse of the outside, which is rather relaxing to be gazing from within quarantine. So communicate a bit bit about the ones possible choices.

Speaker 10: 29:30 Yeah, we had been fortunate. I imply, once a year we are in reality more or less on the whim of growth put up. Um, so, uh, you realize, the programming workforce, uh, Sterling ADOT and Karlie Starview denials, they in reality undergo that. What do now we have? And we in reality preferred to have themed blocks. So now we have those theme blocks of flicks that might not be simply documented, simply love tales. You realize, there could be a Nixon there and they are tied in combination by some means by means of every other thread, that is transferring in the course of the tales. Um, and now we have some in reality stunning movies. So expectantly I will, it is going to be that more or less inspiring factor the place you are trapped within and you’ll be able to are living vicariously thru those movies and now not be like, I want I may just get in the market. Um, so only a few stunning movies which can be in our sustainable block and even in our lineup block, which is most commonly about surf and skate.

Speaker 13: 36:17 That is Elgin and I am. Yeah. I wrote the lyrics and Carl sang it fantastically and we sang it type of as a bunch vocal, you realize, we simply sought after to make one thing that, that had type of like a favorable message. I feel, um, I feel the total feeling for the report was once looking to create one thing certain that folks may just more or less have a great time too, but additionally it was once our duty to give a contribution one thing that had some politically minded content material suitable for our instances that we are residing in and now not simply more or less sit down at the sidelines and simply watch the object pass down in flames. So, uh, simply looking to, you realize, let other folks know they have got energy to switch their lives and get in combination and make a favorable alternate. [inaudible] I feel it in reality speaks to the, uh, the theory of everyone getting in the market and balloting for something, we launched it. Then I heard it the primary time I believed this can be a nice get out and vote unmarried. In order that made me glad.

Speaker 12: 37:23 So let’s return on your roots a bit bit. What, what has influenced the grey boy big name sound?

Speaker 13: 37:31 Uh, that is Carl. I met DJ grey boy again in 1992. He got here to a display that I used to be doing in orange County, California. And, um, thru a chum of mine, I met him thru a chum and he was once doing his DJ factor and he sought after some are living tools. I feel the good factor about it was once after we met, we began speaking about track and the phrase Boogaloo got here out of either one of our mouths virtually concurrently. In order that more or less sealed the deal for he and I. After which, you realize, a yr later when we had achieved, we had achieved a few recordings in combination. I walked right into a storage and Robert and Mike had been there. The place had been you guys at that time? Um, musically in the case of the entire soldier has Google the object I used to be, I used to be simply getting became directly to it. So I, I liked just like the meters and James Brown and, and I had a Ramsey Lewis report and Herbie Hancock report, however I did not have the ones like status and blue Lou Donaldson and rusty Bryant, you realize, Buckaloo Jones, all

Speaker 14: 38:36 That stuff more or less got here from Grey’s grill, DJ grey boys, like mixtape, he made for us. And I used to be like, Oh my God, what is that this track? And the place has this been? All my existence? Reason it did, it had the entire issues I preferred about funk track, the tones and the, and the, it was once felt bodily, but it surely additionally had all this nice improvisation. And I simply concept that was once this type of cool aggregate. After which after that, I were given obsessive about it and I might attempt to to find the entire unique information that he was once given us and to find out who performed on the ones and more or less practice it down the rabbit hollow of that entire taste.

Speaker 13: 39:06 Yeah. I feel that is Elgin past due eighties and early nineties. I used to be residing in San Francisco and type of one of the vital first puts that this kind of resurgence of soul jazz, uncommon groove stuff was once taking place in San Francisco with a report retailer known as groove service provider up there within the decrease Haight. And so they used to have those, they used to have those DJ nights up there. Um, I feel perhaps even earlier than it was once happening in San Diego, which was once at Nikki’s barbeque pit, so I might pass there and it might be a super combine of various mixture of other folks from the decrease Haight, like initiatives within the decrease Haight, the entire method up thru like, you realize, hippies and, you realize, identical to a in reality cool, attention-grabbing team of other folks. And it was once the meters and some of these, you realize, type of instrumental tracks that had been tremendous funky, more or less like, I used to be all the time like, smartly, purpose I might all the time heard of James Brown, however now it was once type of the meters and that more or less factor.

Speaker 13: 39:58 After which once I met gray, like thru a chum of ours, um, down in San Diego and he became me on to love, you realize, grant inexperienced Boogaloo, Joe Jones, um, you realize, extra of, you realize, perhaps some much less 1st viscount montgomery of alamein, even supposing those different guys had been like blue, principally like blues guitar gamers, type of enjoying one of those a commonplace mixture of like virtually like nation track and people track, you realize, and blues. And in order that for me was once a super access level purpose I wasn’t in reality a jazz guitar participant and I nonetheless do not in reality imagine myself a jazz guitar participant. So it was once type of a super access into enjoying nice dance track, you realize, which I might by no means achieved earlier than. Yeah. So that you type of began within the vintage type of within the storage place to begin. How do you, how do you describe your sound? I just like the time period West coast Boogaloo, which is the identify of our first report.

Speaker 13: 40:49 And I in reality suppose that, you realize, that identifies us to me like what we in reality are as a result of we are like this bizarre, we all the time pass out and excursion, um, at first of the band and you realize, the entire acid jazz factor was once taking place, however we had been in reality the one ones doing what we did. And it was once this, this like, um, purity of sticking to the, to this sort of, um, jazzy or structure the place we did not get, we did not in reality get misplaced into the, like looking to be a dance guy or looking to be a funk band or looking to be one thing else. We had been all the time more or less like, let’s be a jazz band that folks dance to. And I in reality really feel like that created the, the time period West coast Boogaloo and, uh, and that is the reason just about what we nonetheless are. Yeah. I imply, I feel all through, all through the early days of our band and I feel all folks are moderately like have the ones type of a punk rock spirit too.

Speaker 13: 41:47 Like neither of, none folks sought after to belong to the rest ever. And I nonetheless do not suppose we do, you realize, it is like, we in reality were not a part of the acid jazz scene and we were not after we’re in we are in up to Carl wish to recall to mind us as a jazz band, we aren’t in reality a jazz band and we aren’t in reality a rock band and we aren’t in reality, I imply, we are numerous, we aren’t in reality numerous issues, however the only factor we’re is a Boogaloo band. So in an excessively, in a very easy sense of the phrase, you simply concentrate to the information, grant inexperienced existence. Neatly, you realize, you realize, uh, Joe Jones, Melvin sparks, Rubin Wilson, you listened to those information. That is what we’re. We are not, we aren’t in reality looking to be a part of any fresh second in time. I am not, anyway, we are simply 5 guys enjoying this taste of track length. And that’s the reason how now we have lasted. I do know, I believed it was once going to final like 3 days. That is why I modified my identify. Like, smartly, on the finish of the week, I will simply return to my identify 25 years later, right here we’re Elgin park. Yeah.

Speaker 12: 42:59 However it is more or less black American track style that you have taken and molded into your personal inventive shape. How do you, how do you are saying that you just type of did that to, to, to change into your, your personal model of one thing that you just all liked

Speaker 14: 43:13 To me, that is Robert. One of the most issues that took place is we strive no less than from the place I am at, I used to be beginning as a in reality looking to be devoted to that and in reality be informed that the track I heard the ones information and I used to be like, that is so cool. I need to more or less work out how to do that. So at first it was once a, to me, it was once like a tribute to those issues and perhaps looking to shine some gentle in this track that was once common, however by means of the act of doing it for see you later and in such a lot of presentations and enjoying at the street, I believe like now we have internalized that. And now we will be able to in reality discuss that language in an original method. That is not imitative, you realize, but it surely took a while and over time, now we have all gotten higher at it. I feel,

Speaker 12: 43:54 Communicate to me concerning the San Diego track scene again within the early nineties and the way, how the grey boy, all stars were given began.

Speaker 14: 44:01 If I am not wrong, DJ grey boy already had, um, Wednesday nights going at a spot known as the golf green circle bar in downtown San Diego. However there wasn’t in reality it scene for this actual more or less factor, except for for grey had this evening on Wednesdays. And we began enjoying. He would play earlier than us. We play a collection he’d play in between. We play a collection after which he play after. And it simply more or less snowballed from there. We began enjoying, taking little journeys out to San Francisco and we went to Europe a few instances and, and it more or less organically grew a band.

Speaker 2: 44:33 And at one level in San Diego, we actually may just paintings seven nights every week enjoying this track. It was once superb length that we in fact simply performed round the town in San Diego at all times. It was once superb. That was once so dream from the grey boy. Allstars 1994 album West coast Boogaloo. So now it is been seven years since your final album, the place did the theory of this new album come from and what made you get the band again in combination? Once more, we by no means stopped enjoying in combination and that is the reason the wonderful thing about this.

Speaker 14: 45:31 We had been in Houston and we had a gig that was once meant to be out open air and there was once a rainstorm. So the, the object was once canceled for rain. Um, and we had all been pondering it is time to write some new track. And by chance we had been, you realize, we had an evening off swiftly, so we determined to hire a bit studio and get started writing track. And we wrote about part the album and that, that one evening off, um, you realize, we will have simply sat across the lodge, however we had been like may as smartly simply play. And, um, and it got here in combination in reality speedy. And I feel that is a part of the allure of this album is that we did it so temporarily and not anything’s too over thought to be. And it simply felt like we needed some track that shall we play are living to clean up the set lists. And that’s the reason kinda what we made. We simply made some track that we needed to play.

Speaker 2: 46:22 Neatly, it is a excellent factor. We have now were given your new album, the grey boy, all stars and new album Comodo, the entire stars, which is out now, Carl Vinson, Robert Walter, and Elgin park of the grey boy. All-stars thank you such a lot for preventing by means of. Thank you for having us. Thanks. Thanks. That was once Alison st. John’s talking with the contributors of the grey boy, all stars. The band simply launched its new album, Como de all stars and a reissue in their 1994 album West coast Boogaloo. [inaudible].
