    One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

    Surprised there wasn't more comparison with A Clockwork Orange (beyond the underage comment). They both really had a central theme about the system and how an individual who doesn't fit is treated. I would even say they both attempt to take the easy way out from their sentences with serious consequences. A Clockwork Orange dwells a little more on the after while Cuckoo's Nest is more blunt with the Lobotomy and pillow bit. I did a term paper on Burgess way back when and seem to remember stories of him travelling to Leningrad (the drunk and stowaway parts seem to not have been true) where he was treated nicely and came to the conclusion that people are good by the system was bad. Perhaps that doesn't come across as clearly in the movie? It's been a while since i've seen either.

    The Searchers

    My mom claims to be a descendant of Hannah Dustin. Hay cousin. There is a statue of her in Haverhill, Mass. Probably will be take down at some point.

    Listener Questions Special

    I take it a whole lot of people haven't seen Gallapoli. Cause that's going to bump most things.

    Next R U Talking Series

    I'd listen to a Rocket from the Tombs series. But my personal vote would be Camper Van Beethoven.

    The refugees in the Philippines would have been ARVN (South Vietnamese) who were our allies. They would have fought against other Vietnamese and not Americans in the war. So beyond basic reliving war experiences I don’t think they would have been anything particularly notable about having to film scenes fighting against US troops. That was a bit of a fishing trip to find something by which to be offended. Also, the Vietnamese fought many wars: the thing we call ‘The Vietnam War’ is sometimes called the American War to distinguish it from the ones against the French, the Chinese, World was II (and they had to eventually roll into Cambodia to end the Khmer Rouge nonsense). I’ve read quite a few return to Vietnam stories from Vietnam vets and they are always surprised by how warmly they are greeted by former NVA and VC opponents. Of course, it’s easier to be mangnamous when you win...
  6. I prefer his cover of The Byrds "My Back Pages." With Mr Tamborine Man, I think Dylan heard Shatner's cover and thought 'I can do that!'
  7. I'm a Trimm Trabb/Self Titled guy, personally. Honorable mention Coffee and TV.

    Or Hindu Love Gods? The cover of Raspberry Beret is on Warren Zevon's Genius/Greatest Hits. It's not terrible.

    Hooray for a Friday meetup. I was worried that I might have to miss something important but my Friday is clear.
  10. I wish they had asked about the 'A Dogs Purpose' deal that went viral and set people straight on that one. It seemed pretty obvious that they showed the dog not wanting to go in the water and then cut to it the water, but it could have been days later. The Humane Society on set representative said everything was done properly, but TMZ made it look awful, as they do.

    So, there is a bar in the Watergate (hotel part), with the most cringe-worthy name 'The Next Whisky Bar.'

    Automatic for the People

    Also on the roof of the school in 10 Things I Hate About You. Wait, are we exchanging letters about Letters to Cleo?

    Out of Time

    My buddy played Baritone Sax and I remember the day came in and had discovered Morphine. Completely blown away there was a band with a bari and just bari, bass, and drums. I will say David Lowery from Camper Van sorta got a bit of revenge when his Cracker song named Low was a big hit. You take our electric mandolin, we will take Low. (I know Lowery isn't the mandolin player and that guy didn't make it to Cracker, but still)

    Weird fact: a dry lake in some parts of the world is called a Pan. So the opposite of Lake Street could be Pan Ocean (Pacific).

    When Scott (not Scott) was trying to hum the Dylan song, he was doing 'Smoke on the Water.' I'm not crazy, right?
