    Bob Kane: "Batman and Me" - Santa Barbara Writers Conference - Mystic Ink Publishing Voices of the Masters Series - 1995

    Bob Kane: "Batman and Me" - Santa Barbara Writers Conference - Mystic Ink Publishing Voices of the Masters Series - 1995

    Robert Kane (born Robert Kahn October 24, 1915 – November 3, 1998) was an American comic book writer, animator and artist who co-created, with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Finger (Bill Finger), the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DC_Comics (DC Comics) character https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman (Batman). Kane was inducted into the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book (comic book) industry's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kirby_Hall_of_Fame (Jack Kirby Hall of Fame) in 1993 and into the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisner_Award (Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame) in 1996.
    In early 1939, DC's success with the seminal superhero https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman (Superman) in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_Comics (Action Comics) prompted editors to scramble for more such heroes. In response, Bob Kane conceived "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman (the Bat-Man)." Kane said his influences for the character included actor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Fairbanks (Douglas Fairbanks)' film portrayal of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swashbuckler (swashbuckler) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zorro (Zorro); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci (Leonardo da Vinci)'s diagram of the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornithopter (ornithopter), a flying machine with huge bat-like wings; and the 1930 film https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bat_(1926_film)#Remakes (The Bat Whispers), based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Rinehart (Mary Rinehart)'s mystery novel https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Circular_Staircase (The Circular Staircase) (1908). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Finger (Bill Finger) joined Bob Kane's nascent studio in 1938. An aspiring writer and part-time shoe salesperson, he had met Kane at a party, and Kane later offered him a job https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_writer (ghost writing) the strips Rusty and Clip Carson. He recalled that Kane
    ...had an idea for a character called 'Batman', and he'd like me to see the drawings. I went over to Kane's, and he had drawn a character who looked very much like Superman with kind of ... reddish tights, I believe, with boots ... no gloves, no gauntlets ... with a small https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domino_mask (domino mask), swinging on a rope. He had two stiff wings that were sticking out, looking like bat wings. And under it was a big sign ... BATMAN.Finger said he offered such suggestions as giving the character a cowl and scalloped cape instead of wings; adding gloves; leaving the mask's eyeholes blank to connote mystery; and removing the bright red sections of the original costume, suggesting instead a gray-and-black color scheme. Finger additionally said his suggestions were influenced by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Falk (Lee Falk)'s https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phantom (The Phantom), a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Print_syndication (syndicated) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newspaper (newspaper) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_strip (comic strip) character with which Kane was familiar as well. Finger, who said he also devised the character's civilian name, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Wayne (Bruce Wayne), wrote the first Batman story, while Kane provided art. Kane, who had already submitted the proposal for Batman at DC and held a contract, is the only person given an official company credit for Batman's creation. Comics historian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Goulart (Ron Goulart), in Comic Book Encyclopedia, refers to Batman as the "creation of artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger".
    According to Kane, "Bill Finger was a contributing force on Batman right from the beginning. He wrote most of the great stories and was influential in setting the style and genre other writers would

    Matt Pallamary Midnight Coast to Coast Shamanism Interview About Visionary Experiences With George Noory - May 4, 2022

    Matt Pallamary Midnight Coast to Coast Shamanism Interview About Visionary Experiences With George Noory - May 4, 2022

    Author, editor, and shamanic explorer http://mattpallamary.com/ (Matthew Pallamary) shared his visionary experiences, and information about psychoactive plants, shamanism, and spirit possession. He described how the ritual of taking the ayahuasca brew in South America likely dates back to primitive times, and that the plant spirits serve as allies or emissaries. When you ingest them, "you literally become the jungle," he remarked, adding that the shaman guiding the ayahuasca trip helps people modulate the energy during the experience and release traumas stored inside the body as a kind of purification.
    Related to plant allies is the notion of animal spirits, and Pallamary detailed how in the Inca and pre-Inca traditions, the world is represented by three creatures: The upper world – condor (rose-colored/love), the middle world – jaguar (electric blue/power), and the lower world – serpent (gold/wisdom), and "when you get them all working together you'll get an ultraviolet blue," he revealed. In shamanic traditions, the idea of someone being possessed is seen as a lower or darker energy that is driven by repressed trauma. Rather than being considered evil, they believe this state of being is a form of ignorance, he explained.
