12:30 am
ok, that's part of what makes this so special is this particular breed which we called breed 10 or brute act, which makes it ever much more mysterious x marks the spot. this is the most widely distributed brood of 17 years to kate is gone anywhere on planet earth, all the way from georgia to long island, new york, and west to ohio, illinois and indiana. this means that in the eastern half of the united states, we're going to have billions, if not trillions of periodical cicada is interacting with tens of millions of human beings in their back yard. that's going to create some very interesting situation. oh ok me. my name is melissa rose. i'm an artist off of long island,
12:31 am
new york. and right now we're in south new york that my grandparents old house, this place from my childhood, where i used to run around him, pick up the rocks outside with my grandma, and find bugs and watch the cicadas emerge. and it all really impacted me. and i didn't really realize until i ended up going to art school and pursuing my passion in bio art, which is what i consider myself. i'm a bio artist. i or this is my very 1st by alter that i made. i have a few cases that are showcase from this piece that i used and both of them were found on shelter with my father when he took me to the nature reserve that he was working at. a lot of the things that have inspired me has been the symbology,
12:32 am
with in the, in facts that i have found throughout my life time in my childhood that i held onto . and for a while, i kept them in these little boxes in my room. and i was not sure what to do with them until one day it just dawned upon me to make a place of worship for them. and somewhere where i can honor them. on the photographer, naturalists and children's book author, and i live right here in chestnut hill in northwest part of philadelphia. so this is my latest coming invasion of the periodicals, because i keep the rock creek park to look for the campus. and i think i'm here a little bit early, but right now i'm looking for names which are underground. next spend their time feeding on tree roots, and then in the spring, they build
12:33 am
a little going up to the surface. often the tunnel will hit the bottom log and you can find the cicada right there at the bottom. the log is neighborhood like this one in rockville with great place to find the key to see the old trees and the lawn. mrs area hasn't been served for a long time, at least not completely disturbed. look at this. well, there's a tunnel. 12345 tunnels under here. they're ready to emerge as soon as the conditions are right. and those conditions include the $64.00 degree foil temperature. after a good rainstorm, when the boil is reached, that temperature will come out by the 1000000. this is my very 1st sketchbook that really started off. my interests was cicadas and there symbology. throughout my art . this the cater waiting, i actually found in the greek mountains and that was the 1st cicada i ever
12:34 am
saw. and it really sparked a lot of inspiration. multiple setting of the shell of the cicada symbolizes the many stages of transformation required of a person before all illusions has been broken and one reaches enlightenment. in japanese culture, the cicada is seen as a symbol of reincarnation. since they are constantly shutting their skin and leaving behind nothing but an empty show, there also symbolizes evanescence. through their short listen i there's a place on long island. it's called wildwood state park, and that's where me and my friends used to go all the time. like growing up in high school and i found a bunch of cicadas there once, and there was this tree that i found and someone must put
12:35 am
a saw in the tree. and it was just stuck like me and my friend trust and we're trying to pull it out. we couldn't pull it out. and unfortunately he passed away a few months later. and i remember i went back to the tree and there was a cicada on the saw. and that's what i base one of my paintings on. i honestly felt like it was him coming to visit me. i really feel like it's all symbolic with each other because so many things in life are just so ephemeral and they pass you by like the cicadas are and they live underground for lake 13 to 18 years and they come up just for 3 weeks and they buzz around and they sing their songs and they dance and dance and then they kind of die. they can make use of that for me. when i think about my friend, it just makes really happy because he had a really good life is short and it reminds me a lot of the little the gators when they thing their song like i feel like he is
12:36 am
like with them thinking it's really beautiful and yeah, i actually, i made a short film in my sophomore year in college that highlighted all that. and i i made a piano. so me, me . i i mean,
12:37 am
i mean, he lets me you can enjoy the here, isn't it. my name is doug and i live in philadelphia and my favorite, my favorite insect is a month is the 1st thing to know is that the kid is, are homeless. and you think should worry if they land on you or if they fly and you listen to changes. ok. you went to timble have a nice ok. and do you know how they make it? they vibrate it, right. they pop it in out. this is what it looks like. i found the dead one and i cut it open. all these, these things are muscles and they,
12:38 am
they move really fast, hoping that this little drop in and out. notice also that the key to this is a meal ticket is empty inside reason tempe, is it because it's like a musical instrument, like a guitar. it has a space inside. it allows the sound to resonate, improves the sound and amplifies the sound so that the song carried farther. go once the cicadas are up in the tree top, it's all going to be about romance. it's very much like humans. once they get eyeball to eyeball, the males dictated, has to use his very best performance to try to convince that special someone that they showed hooked up and she should be the mother of this. and then he's going to use a variety of courtship songs and his performance has to be good because it's everybody know, it's always the females that get to choose. we think the one that sings the loudest,
12:39 am
just like in the club, has the best performance. he may be the one that wins seeing aloud thinking long may when the heart of the female kid, that's what he's hoping for. i hope in maryland right now, getting ready to go into this the key civil and we traveled like 4 or 5 hours yesterday from long island, new york to come here and see all the subpoenas. so magical, there's so many cases everywhere flying around and hatching. and we saw them last night at the hotel just everywhere. yeah, i wasn't really, i wasn't sure how local really react to this because, oh by. oh, he doesn't like our locals are kind of like on like different ends of the spectrum
12:40 am
. like there's like a whole festival for them over here. and a lot of people are excited. but even last, i met a couple of people who didn't really like the cicada. there was one lady who said that she absolutely hated them and she was scared of them. and they used to fly into her hair when she was a little kid. so she just didn't have great memories of them. and i talked to her about my art, and i told her that i came here to see them. and she was like, completely shocked. but she actually really liked my artwork and asked her my card and wanted me to design it, had to for her. so it's just like really funny how all of that kind of comes full circle. because one of the main things with my work is to kind of get people to see the bugs and like this a kato's specifically right now, like in a different way and to accept their beauty, even if they don't really like how many there are. and if they don't like creepy crawly, and stuff like that, it actually hurts a little bit when they get on your neck. how rockville maryland. i came here to photograph the emergence of the cater and to see the
12:41 am
masses. and the kid is here. this is like the center of the brood 10, emergent. fortunately, my cousin lives here. so i've got a place to stay late. i mean i definitely feel the for but i was definitely feeling the amazed part was being overwhelmed by the creepiness. i was just feeling dread at everybody's pissed. thing like they're coming. they're coming or like showing picture that like one or 2 and just this is the beginning. i just sort of felt like very foreboding and i didn't know what to expect. i think i'm trying to counteract that sense of dread by trying to find the sense of wonder and i want to be able to go outside every once a while. i was afraid to think it is. i mean, they're very
12:42 am
a little bit that you are afraid of that much in the when the girl named the mayor and the president who are the same person right of the same cicada they have named him dan, you've really fell off. he does have, he has a injured wing and so they're tending to him by delivering burritos and cake with her grass and little roots wrapped up in the other room in a nice package. and suzanne, still doing okay. they are really interesting and fun to catch and harmless they don't actually hurt people. oh, look forward to talking to you all. that technology should work for people. a robot
12:43 am
must obey the orders given it by human beings, accept where's the short or conflict? with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. the point obviously is to great truck rather than fear i would like to take on various jobs with artificial intelligence. we'll summoning the theme and the robot must protect its phone. existence was only a. ready ready launch crunch l i class enough person i knew often the saw said that the cobalt blue book
12:44 am
truly i knew someone would the because it's always more you need to. he's going to contribute the usually so which is francis and what gone. yeah. cuz really knew from the moment that she needs to bring it up on the none of my new middle charges on top. i don't want to don't want to get it for my fiance. oh got it. so you can have this one. you seem really cool. what's your name at?
12:45 am
awesome. you're so cool. i feel like you got an artistic sold to you like the bug him. so my initial idea to do this project and my project was supposed to take one afternoon. i was trying to make these insects more attractive for my kids. so all this is julia. can you say hi. and what do you think about impact thing? when make them do things that makes them, do you think that humans do the timeline very, very fast? the one i photographed them cicadas and over the weekend i posted a very short post on our local next door, which is our little social network for all the people that live in the area. and everyone loved the idea and told me that they wanted to share my photos with their friends and families. so i put an extra tab on my website, and that's when pretty viral in the next 24 hours. and the next thing i know,
12:46 am
washington post, what a teacher me and i've been contacted by pretty much every new like local and national news and ours, the kiddos have to go into outer space because the planet has gotten a little too small for them to be so obviously some of the cicadas do not have very high tolerance for alcohol because they are already passing out since always the key to i don't know if they're going to be around in july 4th. it's months away or so i decided to throw them in independence day party to make sure that they have lots of fun before they're short laser over all. no, they're in the fight. look about, oh dear. this was one of my earlier said,
12:47 am
it's kind of simple, but it's just lots of fun. it just rings true with a lot of people who after a year and a half of been in lockdown and looking forward to just celebrating with their friends and families. and grill um the idea behind to phone one is my personal interest in creating a community. normalize the data eating because i wanted to caters but i thought it was gross. i was like i needed some moral support to do that myself and grill. oh grilly. rather than leave arrested like a mild, sort of like, i wouldn't say sure. and i would say sort of like like a worm fried. if you never even one of those,
12:48 am
it's not going to help you out much you how do you? because you were air for 600 or 6 minutes or 400 degrees. the old, they really remind me at the sea food. so it does have the 1st time i got that that people told me i would get. whereas most of the other ones, it was more like a peanut giving you the full life span of the cicada, the name to the 10 year old goes to the full mature adult. yeah. look at that beautiful morsel morsels. yeah. the marshal cycle. try one of the it's very mild. it's just kinda like took me did you you think it is we think it is. i just wrote i was a good. 7 lie to my
12:49 am
job i mean, that's not very satisfying. cicadas or just so plentiful, and i know from past broods that a lot of them are going to get eaten, and even if they don't, they're going to die really soon after that. and so the ethical concern is somewhat less about like causing individual suffering. so again, like i needed a whole festival, but it worked, it worked for me and it worked for a lot of i guess it's like more normal now, i'm not ready to pick up a great big, juicy grub from the compost or from our mulch pile and pop it in my mouth, but i might roast it. i might air fry it in there.
12:50 am
here, given to me, i think of the cave as before, i cooked her little kiner, kate, him and also to keep him turning dark and white color. he have a friday night. 17 years ago i still was year cicadas are back. and oh my goodness. today the war was so loud. it was in the side that i heard it. i thought there was war traffic, but no, it was a damage. i mean, bad,
12:51 am
bad. we gotta mind it. where does that randomly think? oh, my god. this is like when you're down the street, you me why, you know i one, yeah, they're covering the side was the carcasses and you're just like, wow, i'm even young. so like you're walking around to be like this, you don't step on any kind of go get a, you know. 2 the key so this is, this is a decimal meter. when it ok when you're quiet. yeah. the you basically make you go to 70 and 80. yeah. but yesterday it was really loud to wind up like it was more loud. so i went up to 80 on the thing and says when i 80, that is the sound. it sounds like like a food blender. yeah. one is always like basically like having
12:52 am
a food wonder outside her old time and a female might be more than human. they mean it's like a like say hello, are they going to, if you, if you think i just pass each other mode yeah. was up in the trees might be, well, i guess when i was mailed to singing, it's a k to police. and it's all about romance, the guy, those teenage cicada is, are rocking out. they've been underground social distancing living a cold, been like existence for 17 years in a, they're teenagers. they're going to sing, they're going to have romance much the same way. we're taking off our math, we're getting together with friends, to socialize, listen to music, and ad rome in pain in the last
12:53 am
when they are coming out of their show, when they're most, they have so many things that can go wrong. and so they'll like damage their little soft body slightly. yeah. and then they begin to lose chemo. so i noticed in watching them, and it turned from clear to over lesson, to gray, to black as it was oxidizing with eric. so it's just like this really magical thing that was happening while we would collect them and they would be, you know, they would have drunk from the tree and be slightly bruised or something. and then this liquid got black or black or so i thought and it turns out it makes very colors that i've done some solar tests and it does not disappear or fade in the sun either. so it's like really color fast. like my husband is a dear hunter and we use every part of the yeah. and it's the same even with,
12:54 am
with foods and live by harvest herbs pursuit. once i strip the leaves, i'm like, well deserves. i don't want to waste them either. so they go in here for a year, we've been married for 25 years. you're going to think about whether the male female there for sure that all of those were liquid in oh, near you look as a role in the environment. it's kinda like
12:55 am
a big bonus. they come out every 17 years, quite a number of animals probably get a big population. during that time period caught a key factor in metamorphose and still white and pale. it's nice and soft. it's going to bring it back to the nest box and see the young with it. this is the male eastern blueberry. what happens to all the bodies? yeah, they decompose the bacteria, break them apart and eat them. and they become part of the soil. and they, they feed the trees that fed them right. and when they feed the trees, the trees are healthy and they see this then it's like the food is going into the cicada. it's a cycle right this
12:56 am
way. this is wildwood state park in waiting river new york. this is a really important place to me. this is actually where a lot of my art was inspired from. i came here with my for interest and there used to be actually a tree right in front of me that we moralize and put one of his unitary cards on. and it just so happened to have fallen down a lot of this place and been rooted. i think that coming back here now and seeing that the trees are gone really as to the fed morality of the art that i made. and like so many things that are no longer here. i can make them live on through my artistic vision. this is a tattoo that i designed with my tattoo artist in 2015 after my friend tristan passed away and i drew up this cicada inspired dagger knife because he really reminded me of a cicada. and every time i looked down on my arm, i can know that i shouldn't give up. and i got to dance the dance just like the
12:57 am
cicadas. do i think that's a reminder to everyone, metlife is sure. and we should enjoy it as much as we can while we can, because we're kind of like cicadas to life really just passes by fast and you never know how long you have. and i think it's just important to remember that life is beautiful. i. i mean, i oh, oh, i you all the, all the oh no
12:58 am
i oh right now there are 2000000000 people who are overweight or obese. is profitable to sell food that is fatty and sugary and faulty and addicted. not at the individual level. it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that will never change as obesity epidemic, that industry has been influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific establishment, ah, what's driving the mac, it's corporate. me.
12:59 am
they're the ones who are dictating prices. so we're creating a monster here. we created a brick and monster. we've got china, economy zooming, they can raise prices at will. and no matter how high china raise prices for americans to buy their good buy, it's going to print more money to send to china. this is the worst is dopey and chinese finger traps that ever been invented. the war on drugs started as a way to come back. a great problem. what's the one? it's part of the attitude of the nation, not just of north dakota, and it's got to be something that you could get elected. this time, the fight against drugs took a tragic, told us that andrew was competing short form. is way too dangerous for him to be doing. clearly they put him in harm's way. a rural college
1:00 am
student does interest get shot in the head and found in a river like that. something else had to be happening. the in the head was this saturday morning. i'll try that in the british parliament as concert panes threatened to boy help their party conference dis vaccine are required to hold as the world we go, website launches a guy. the bailiff knew a things some of the color and process because at least 7 people implicated the murder of president early this month with traded america as a rationale i .
