Let's go forward in time to the past so we can get back to the future and kill our grandfather and be our own ancestor while we step on a bug and change the course of evolution 200 million years in the future and doom the Morlocks to a date with Doctor Who, while Bill and Ted drive a Delorean in the Old West and save Fry's dog as it waits out the front of the Pizza place… Time travel is fun to talk about, but it's easy to mess up because paradoxes in plots pop up all over the place as timelines intersect and cross over and over, getting tangled and logically prevent events that have already happened from happening! Here we chat about some of that as well as our fave time travel stories, like Dr Who, Bill and Ted, The Tomorrow People, Playing Beati Bow, Back to the Future, The Time Machine, A Connecticut Yankee in the Court of King Arthur, Army of Darkness, Outlander etc. Examples abound! Time travel stories can allow us as an audience to visit a distant time with ourselves looking at the future or past through the eyes of the time traveller, or their naive helper like Marty from Back to the Future or one of Dr Who's companions. They can give us outlandish adventures or bizarre and complex mysteries that make the most of the time paradoxes. Time travel is fantasy fiction for us because we can only go forwards at the same rate… but it exists in physics as a logical theory and paradoxes can be overcome in specific ways, so it's a possibility, just one that no one can work out how to usefully achieve. Which is why we have stories! So what are YOUR fave time travel stories and why? This week Gunwallace has given us something different! Rat Test Blues - Gunwallace doing his own thing here! The dangers and worries of CoVid-19 are universal, and New Zealand is no exception. Here Mr Gunwallace gives voice to his and all our apprehensions when faced with a malady when there's a pandemic about… “Do I have Covid or just a cold?” Only the Rapid Antigen Test can say for sure. Awesome blues number, that guitar roars and sings and Gunwallace's vocals are perfect.

Bob Weatherwax;Four Feet to Fame: A Hollywood Dog Trainer's JourneyMy name is Bob Weatherwax. My father was Rudd B. Weatherwax, best known as the original owner and trainer of Lassie. My father and I were the trainers of some of Hollywood's most famous dogs.From my Dad's work with Asta in the original Thin Man series, up until my work with Einstein (the dog in Back to the Future), we have created a long and storied legacy of trained dogs in the motion picture industry. Of course, the most memorable animal in our work was none other than Lassie, the cultural icon of both movies and television.My family's journey began with my grandfather, Walter S. Weatherwax, who was a deputy United States Marshal in the New Mexico Territory. He was also an inventor, and even a trick-rider in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.Economic hard times brought Walter to Hollywood, when the film industry was in its infancy. At that time, some of Hollywood's silent legends were making their mark on American culture. Among the stars was a German shepherd named Rin Tin Tin. It was in that unique place and time, that Walter and his sons, (Rudd, Frank, and Jack), made their own mark on American movie history.My father's brother, Jack, was the trainer of Toto in the 1939 classic, Wizard of Oz. Dad's brother, Frank, trained Spike, the dog in Disney's Old Yeller. Rudd, my Dad, trained Asta, Daisy, and Lassie, the collie who would rise to super stardom. I worked with Dad from the early 1960's until his death in 1985. I carried on the Lassie legacy until 2002. Then, against my wishes, the Weatherwax family voted to sell the Lassie trademark.Due to my father's genius, we transformed the training of dogs from simple props on a movie set into actors who seemed to behave with human-like emotions. Dad was a transitional figure in Hollywood animal training, and my experiences with him from childhood to adulthood have transformed my life and made me who I am today.I hope that my father's life-long labor of love, of which I am proud to have shared by his side, will be uplifting in a world that - more than ever - needs some inspiration from the past.https://weatherwaxtraineddogs.com/Music Playlist;1.

The Philippines is bracing for an important presidential election on Monday. Way ahead in the polls is Ferdinand Marcos Jr., also known as Bongbong, and his running mate Sara Duterte. If those names sound familiar, they should: Marcos is the son of the Philippine dictator of the same name, who became notorious for corruption and human rights abuses, as well as his wife Imelda – and her massive shoe collection. Sara Duterte is the daughter of outgoing strongman leader Rodrigo Duterte, whose rule has been defined by – and condemned for – its bloody war on drugs. Many have forgotten the sins of the fathers and are enthusiastically embracing the Marcos-Duterte ticket. But correspondent Ivan Watson found there are still some unnerved by this ‘back to the future' prospect. His special report is followed by Christiane's interview with Richard Heydarian, author of The Rise of Duterte.  Also in today's show: award-winning journalist Farai Chideya, CNN anchor and author Zain Asher.

Sachi Parker Has Changed Her Luck Trekkies will remember Sachi Parker as Dr. Tava from the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "First Contact" (no, not the movie), but her career and life go far beyond the stars… although in her case, it was a bit closer to stars than most of us. The daughter of legendary Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine and Steve Parker, Sachi had a tumultuous childhood and a fractured relationship with her mother, which culminated in her writing a tell-all book about the two of them called "Lucky Me: My Life With – and Without – My Mom, Shirley MacLaine." Fast forward to almost a decade after Sachi wrote that book, and her perspective has changed in a big way. We discuss growing up in Japan and her eventual arrival in LA to reconnect with her mom, who in turn helped her daughter discover her talent for acting, what she learned under the tutelage of Peggy Feury, her first professional gig on "Riders to the Sea" with Geraldine Page and Amanda Plummer in Ireland, "Back to the Future" with Michael J. Fox, "Peggy Sue Got Married," "Scrooged" and how much of Bill Murray's speech at the end was improv, and her episode of the sci-fi series "Alien Nation" with Gary Graham and Eric Pierpoint. From there, it's time for some Trek talk, and Sachi explains how she got the role, the makeup, and prosthetics, working with Jonathan Frakes, memories of Bebe Newirth's guest spot in the same episode, and more from her time on set.  We also spend much of the episode discussing her mom, coping with feelings of isolation while growing up under a public microscope, why she kept her mother a secret while she was in Hollywood, figuring out who she is and dealing with her generational trauma, and how Sachi has changed to make her life better today for herself and her family. ·      Check out Sachi's book on Amazon using this link here - https://amzn.to/38UFHRy Please subscribe to our YouTube channel and hit the notifications button to be updated when we go live or upload our next video!

Trek Untold: The Star Trek Podcast That Goes Beyond The Stars!

Trekkies will remember Sachi Parker as Dr. Tava from the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "First Contact" (no, not the movie), but her career and life go far beyond the stars… although in her case, it was a bit closer to stars than most of us.

Les, Kurt, and Jason gather to discuss what may very well be Hallmark's most progressive movie ever. But first, there's big news about Candace Cameron Bure post-Hallmark. And there's even bigger news about the Blac Chyna / Kardashian trial (Tokyo Toni isn't allowed in the courtroom… but Jason almost was, maybe). Then it's time to peruse Love, Classified, a Hallmark movie starring Melora Hardin (aka Jan from The Office, and she who was cast and then fired from the role of Jennifer in the Back to the Future movies). The movie also stars Max Lloyd Jones (from Hallmark's When Calls the Heart, and who used to work with Jason!) If you're looking about a movie revolving around a much nicer version of the Next Door app, then you've found it… especially if you also want that movie to touch on pansexuality, intense grief, estranged family, and an almost date between mother and son! This movie is a big swing from Hallmark, so much so that Les thinks it's his favorite Hallmark movie ever.    Facebook : lifetimeofhallmark Instagram : lifetimeofhallmarkpodcast Theme song generously donated by purple-planet.com

In this episode, we will look at how you could beat Twitter using Jobs-to-be-Done. Twitter, of course, has been in the news because Elon Musk has entered an agreement to buy the company and possibly transform it into something else. But what we want to ask is, regardless of what happens with Elon Musk, what would you do to beat Twitter? What is Twitter's real function in the world? Why are people hiring Twitter? If you took the perspective that Twitter was actually a competitor, and you wanted to compete with them and create a different service, how would you go about doing it and could Jobs-to-be-Done give you insights in beating Twitter even after Elon Musk buys the platform? Or it could be a way that Twitter itself could improve?

Tim Keller, Back to the Future, and Disingenuous Calls for Unity

Winston Churchill once said, "Some people's idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back that is an outrage." I can think of nothing which better describes Leftists on Twitter aghast that conservatives might soon be able to freely state their opinions and convictions online again. But it is not just broader society which struggles with this idea of open discourse and the challenging back and forth of ideas and positions. Within the American church as well, how best or whether to debate issues and positions provokes no small degree of anxiety from some. Take for instance this thread from Tim Keller posted yesterday in which he bemoans unity and fellowship between professing believers being destroyed over political differences. As he highlights in this post, Tim tweeted earlier this week that "Churches must not maintain unity at the expense of the gospel. Churches should not destroy unity or fellowship over political differences." Fortunately for me that he did highlight that tweet in a place I could see it. I'm still locked out of my own Twitter account, and would not be able to read it otherwise. But that really is my point. Free speech to the Left means that they are free to be morally ambiguous where it suits them, downright strident and inflexible where they please, and anyone who says otherwise is being divisive and should be silenced. While we're on the topic, I will add that calls for unity from Tim Keller sound an awful lot to me like calls for unity from Joe Biden. Both lead in with innocuous and fine-sounding sentences and phrases which no one could reasonably deny, then bring in the hook that blasts opponents and critics before saying we all need to rally together. No tag-backs, I guess. But the idea of free speech is inseparably tied - historically, theologically, philosophically, and politically - to both the conviction that we have a God-given right to speak, act, and live according to the dictates of our conscience, and the reality that the annals and chronicles of the human story down through the ages are filled with instances of bullies, charlatans, manipulators, cheats, scoundrels, and tyrants trying to silence the consciences of those who disagree with them. Sometimes these latter efforts take the form of mandates; other times they appear as prohibitions. Sometimes they are false advertising; other times they are disingenuous omissions of important details. And, yes, sometimes even calls for unity mask the stifling of rigorous debate and cross-examination. Whoever can beat everyone else to the buzz-word presents themselves as the embodiment of the noble ideal. He who speaks next with an objection is the divisive one, the intruder disturbing all our peace. Yet even just taking Keller's thread from yesterday for example, he leads off in large font as follows: "I recently wrote about how churches should not destroy unity or fellowship over political differences. The replies show that many American Evangelicals have no coherent understanding of how to relate the Bible to politics." Oh, yes. That is very unifying. Thank you for solving all our troubles in such exemplary fashion, Tim. Nothing like telling those who differ with your takes that they are incoherent, absurd, nonsensical, irrational, immature, and ungodly to show us the way. Yet in what follows, you do as you often do, feigning confusion over whether God's Word speaks to voting for candidates who believe a certain kind of murder must be legal and our tax dollars should go to promoting and subsidizing it, then leave the door wide open that obedience to God's commands to care for the poor may be satisfied with our tax dollars paying for welfare programs. But here also, which is it? You can only pick one. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/garrett-ashley-mullet/support

Unexpectedly, this week Julius tells us about this co-operative Back to the Future game.  Just in case you lived under a rock in the 80s, Back to the Future is the classic sci-fi movie featuring Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and a Delorian.  Actually, it's based on all three movies in the Franchise.  It being that this is a movie tie-in game, you (or at least I) would expect to be pretty poor.  However, it was published by Ravensburger and they make pretty decent games.  This one sounds pretty darned cool!

Soundtrack Producer Mike Matessino talks his involvement in the preparation of the live-to-picture concert performance of John Williams' classic score premiering at the KKL in Lucerne on April 29 Hosted by Maurizio Caschetto and Tim Burden On the eve of the world premiere of Superman In Concert at the KKL in Lucerne, Switzerland, The Legacy of John Williams welcomes Soundtrack Producer Mike Matessino for Part 2 of the podcast special dedicated to this thrilling and long-awaited concert performance of John Williams' majestic score live to picture (listen to Part 1 HERE). In addition to his stellar soundtrack restoration work for which he's much appreciated, Matessino has collaborated with Film Concerts Live on several of their 'Film with Orchestra' projects, assisting and consulting on Back To The Future, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and more recently on Superman: The Movie.  In this conversation, Mike Matessino sits down again with The Legacy of John Williams' Editor Maurizio Caschetto and Head Contributor Tim Burden to talk with thorough detail how the 'Film In Concert' presentations are put together, chronicling his work on Superman and also on other classic John Williams' film concerts as Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Matessino also discusses the reasoning behind the choice of reintroducing music that was originally dialed out or cut from the film's original theatrical release and the many technical challenges of the live-to-picture format.

This week, a shocking season finale! You won't believe the cliffhangers! For the final season 1 episode of Enjoy Stuff, we look back at some memorable TV and movie cliffhangers of all time. Will everyone survive? Tune in next time...   We celebrate our season 1 finale by looking back on some other memorable finales and the origin of cliffhangers. Hang on for dear life as you Enjoy Stuff!    News Tom Hanks teams up with an old cast(away)mate to throw out the first pitch at the Cleveland Guardians game  Netflix Releases Love, Death + Robots Season 3 Trailer What we're Enjoying Jay is channeling his inner brick while playing the recently released LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. As always, this LEGO interpretation of the films is fun and extensive. Shua finally got around to watching the latest and final season of the Netflix series Lost in Space. It's tons of fun and another good interpretation.    Sci-Fi Saturdays/MCU Location Scout Be sure to check out Jay's articles on Retrozap.com. This week he skips the decidedly non-sci-fi Groundhogs Day to check out the obscure 1993 film Nemesis, so named because “the inescapable agent of someone's or something's downfall” was too long for theater marquees.    Enjoy TV! Cliffhangers! These days they make us want to binge entire seasons of shows. But as early as the 70's they gave us something to talk about in the long months leading up to the next season premiere.    According to Master Class, “A cliffhanger is a plot device in which part of a story ends unresolved, usually in a suspenseful or shocking way, in order to compel audiences to turn the page or return to the story in the next installment.” It began in 1873 in a Thomas Hardy novel called “A Pair of Blue Eyes”.    But in 1978, the writers of the TV series “Soap” saw it as an opportunity for audiences to be so intrigued at the outcome, that they will wait on pins and needles for the next season. Voila! Instant underground hype!   Fast forward to 1980 and the writers of the nighttime soap “Dallas” shot the main antagonist of the show and made just about everyone a suspect. ‘Who Shot JR?' was on everyone's lips in 1980 and is still one of the most successful cliffhanger endings in history.   Over the years many shows have used this technique to keep fans returning and to build an even bigger fanbase with word-of-mouth. “The Good Place”, “Friends”, “Walking Dead”...Even people who don't watch the show could probably tell you about a memorable cliffhanger.    In 1990 a syndicated show used this in a way that had never really been done before. “Star Trek: The Next Generation” created a memorable cliffhanger that may have contributed to the continuing future success of the entire franchise with one word, “Fire!”   Movies can use this method too. “Back to the Future part II”, “Avengers: Infinity War”, and of course, “The Empire Strikes Back” gave us months or even years to speculate what solutions could possibly be created to satisfy us.    What are some of your favorite cliffhangers? Do they make you want to come back for more? Did you read all the way to the bottom? First person that emails me with the subject line, “I shot JR” will get a special mention on the show.  Let us know.

Foo Fighters - Lyrics That Camus Would Call The Antidote Of Absurdity!   Hi, I'm Christy Shriver, and we're here to discuss books that have changed the world and have changed us.    And I am Garry Shriver, and this is the How to Love Lit Podcast.  You have heard Christy say, over dozens of times if you've listened to a lot of our episodes that we're here to discuss books.  Having said that, the word “books”  is being used as a synecdoche- to use a literary word- in other words, books is a word we're using to symbolize something bigger of which books is just a part- and that something bigger is this concept of words.  Words that have moved the world and have moved us.  And so, in that spirit, this week, we're pausing from looking at traditional text and looking at music lyrics, specifically rock lyrics, specifically the phenomena that is Foo Fighters and their music.      And let me just add, for Garry, this is an exciting change of pace.  He's been a guitar-head since childhood.  He's a rock and roll and has been since, as a young teenager he saved up his money to buy his first  amp.  Tell us that story, Garry…this is for all the rock-n-roll heads who share a similar experience.      The story…..    And if you are like me, until I met Garry I had no idea that playing the guitar is akin to jumping down Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole.  To parody Freud, sometimes a guitar is not just a guitar-    No, for me the guitar was the gateway instrument into a whole new world of Rock and it was the way that I discovered a bigger world other than the small town I grew up in.…and I will add, not just me.  David Grohl, who started the band Foo Fighters, in 1995 talks about hearing the Album The Record by the band Fear and wanting to become a musician.   In fact, if you listen to Grohl's ac     Well, you say ___________, It's still a bit of a  rabbit hole- I mean just in terms of gear, for those of us who didn't know, you can be a Gibson person, a telecaster person, a stratacaster person, a Gretch person- just to name a few of the kinds of electric guitars, nevermind the amps, the pedals, the boards, the pick ups, the tones- and that's not even the music side of it- just the tech of blasting music on an electrical guitar- think of Michael J Fox in Back to the Future.      But having said that- once you put all those elements together, and if you do so in a genius sort of way, you will get a ticket to transcend into this other realm called Rock and Roll.  Today, and this stat is only an American stat, I don't have the numbers worldwide, but today Rock is still the preferred genre of 56% of the American population, surpassing pop, country and rap- which I found surprising.  Rock albums still account for the majority of all vinyl music sales- although they do not surpass rap or country when it comes to streaming services- that might tell you something about demographics.  But in a world with so many things that divide us, Foo Fighter unite audiences which range over 4 generations and across all nation-states, rock and roll is a powerful unifier.        Yes, and the uncontested leading rock band in the world in 2022  is The Foo Fighters.  And how do we determine that?  Well we can look at awards,   they have won 12 grammies for one thing, including Best Album 4 times.  But awards are not an awesome metric to measure human impact- especially for Rock.  But there are others.  Since David Grohl started his one man band in Seattle in 1994, They have released 9 albums, gone on 9 worldwide tours which each lasted over a year-  just the 2017 tour from the album “Concrete and Gold” consisted of 113 shows on five continents grossing $114 million.  They have sold out the famed Wembley stadium in London- not once but twice, oh and it sold out in 24 hours.  That stadium holds 86,000 people.  Another big hint as to the enormity of their impact from that same tour was the performance at Glastonbury, when over 150,000 people were documented singing in unison the lyrics to their song “Best of You”.  Their top five songs, just on Spotify, which is only one and not even the largest of streaming  services have over 2.5 billion downloads- and that is just on Spotify.  They have 16 million monthly listeners on Spotify.  In 2021 they were inducted into the rock and Roll hall of fame, the first year they were eligible.  There is no overstating the influence, the passion, the commitment and connection that this group of men, led by Dave Grohl, has had on over 4 generations of humans of all ages, races, and gender from all over the world these last 25 years.  Literally hundreds of millions have been touched by their music both in person and over the sound ways.      And so today, we would like to look at the history and the music of this powerful force of positivity, and it has been a force of positivity.  How has this group connected and improved the lives of so many?  There are hundreds of millions of personal examples from fans, but here's a famous one.  In 1995, David Letterman, who at the time was a famous late night comedian on tv, gave the foo fighters their first spotlight on television.  They played a song from their album which I'll tell you about in a minute called “”This is a Call”.  Letterman was hooked on the Foo Fighters.  In 2000, he had a quintuple heart by-pass surgery and after his recovery, he asked them to come to NY and be on his first show back after his surgery.   For him, them being with him was personal.   He publically stated on the show that night that their song “Everlong” was what got him through his surgery and recovery.  When Letterman retired from television, he asked that they play that song again for the last few minutes of his final show after he said farewell for the last time ending his long career.  How did that song, this band, inspire him to fight off death as his heart struggled to regain strength?  What has been the impact of their music on so many across the globe?  The answer lies in the lyrics, in part.  It lies in the musical talent, in part.  It lies in the energy and passion, in part.  It lies in the showmanship But all of these components are working together to produce a single effect- what is it?  What is the power of Rock and Roll?    I think we can see the answer by looking at this band and looking at three of our favorite Foo Fighters songs.      I think we can too.  What we see is that the Foo Fighters in general, and Dave Grohl personal story in particular in every way embody Camus' idea that life is best lived  fighting the absurd, rebelling against meaningless, rebelling against the constant pressure to commit philosophical suicide.       Dave Grohl's life and music showcase one man's fight to do this- in spite of pressure to conform, in spite of death, and in spite of the heavy-handed trappings of success, and that is the gift he shares in his lyrics as well as how he plays and how he lives his life on and off the stage.     We mention Dave Grohl's story, first, because Foo Fighters really starts with him.   For those who aren't familiar with that. Name, Dave Grohl was the drummer for the rock band Nirvana.  In 1994, Nirvana was on top of the world with international success and Grohl became famous.  Last week we mentioned the existential song, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”- that's Nirvana.    Well, I want to add, Grohl's story is almost the classic Camus journey.  His mother is a retired public school English teacher from the suburbs of Washington DC, so shout out to mom!!, btw.  His father was a political speech writer- also from that Washington DC area.   One finny thing is that his mom is a democrat and his dad a Republcan- so there you go navigating that as a kid!!       He left this kind of suburban highly educated lifestyle at the age of 17 and literally dropped out of high school to play the drums.  He even lied about his age because he was a minor.  But he auditioned and joined this band called Scream.  He lived for four years, sleeping on a sleeping bag, living out of a van with the 4 other band members and a roadie, playing night after night in dives to groups of 20-200 people max.      That sounds kind of like a rock and roll movie, and, Of course I don't know, but I can't image his mother being very excited about those life-choices, especially the dropping out of school one.    Probably not, especially since there was no guarantee it would work out.  It almost never does.  But as Grohl tells it, stardom wasn't really the end goal.  He was pursuing music, a community, the life he wanted with nothing to prove really. At one point, Scream was really struggling.  He was in LA and things were at a standstill.  He hears about an opening with this other band called Nirvana.  It wasn't mainstream, but was popular with the underground community on the West Coast, specially Washington state.  David calls a friend who knows the band to try to get an audition and gets it.  He calls his mom to ask her if he should drop Scream and go to Nirvana, with her encouragement he makes the change that would launch him into a different world.    Well, Nirvana's success is pretty well documented, but of course, even people who don't follow rock music cannot think about Nirvana without thinking about the tragic suicide in 1994 of Nirvana's singer-guitarist Kurt Cobain.  The famous Neil Young quote from his note, “It's better to burn out than to fade away” has been controversial itself and unfortunately led to teenage suicides since its release to the public, but for Grohl the loss was personal.      Cobain's death left David heartbroken.  He lived with Cobain, slept on his sofa during the early days.  He had watched Cobain struggle with depression.  He says he saw him have lows and he would go to his room and not come out, but Cobain also could be incredibly fun and alive.  They traveled together, played together, worked together.   He had grown to love his friend.  Beyond just losing a friend, With Cobain's death, Nirvana was over, and Dave had to decide what to do.  Tom Petty, famous in his own right, invited him to play the drums for him, but he decided he didn't want that.  He didn't know if he even wanted to play the drums anymore.    What he wanted was to carve out a new thing- make his own reality- and for him that meant recording an album all by himself.  So, that's what he did.  In 1995, for five days he sat with the engineers in a studio by himself.  He recorded the vocals, recorded the guitar parts, recorded the drum parts and then the engineers put it all on top of each other.  He wanted to make it look like it was actually a band so he used this pseudonym Foo Fighters,  He'd been reading some stuff about UFOs and kind of just used the name.  Later when he was inducted into the hall of fame he said this, “had I actually considered this a career, I probably would have called it something else, because it's the stupidest _________ band name in the world,”  BTW, if you listen to Grohl talk on platforms meant for educational purposes, you will have to get used to a bleeping.  Grohl is passionate and very colorful, it's funny, but there are a lot of bleeps.      The point I want to make by bringing up David's personal history is because it's here we see Grohl, like Camus, choosing to fight the absurd and choosing also to fight philosophical suicide.  He did not conform to th suburbs just because it certainly was an easy thing to do growing up in DC.  He didn't say, “it doesn't matter” when his friend died, because it does matter.  No where in this story can you find someone taking the easy way out- or lying to themselves. This is the story of a child growing into a man determined to be as completely honest as possible and committed to creating meaning- his own meaning- in this world.    And so the Foo Fighters are born.  This very first album was a success and they even got on David Letterman, but it is on the second album The Colour and the Shape that we find one of their most endearing hits,  Everlong, the one Letterman had them perform when he retired.    Which I find so interesting because the song isn't really about anything I would think Letterman would like on the surface, in terms of lyrics.  Grohl wrote it in 1996 after going through an ugly divorce.  He had met another girl, Louise Post, and they just connected.  It's such a funny story.  He originally recorded at a friend's studio in DC, again playing all the parts himself, but it was rough.  When it came time to record the album the The Colour and the Shape, the producer wanted to include Everlong.  He raelly thought it brought the album together thematically.  Grohl was cool with this but he wanted Post to sing the real back up vocals for it because it was about her.  Post recalls, and this is from her Instagram post and I quote, “I sang these back-ups over the phone at 2am after being woken up from a deep sleep in Chicago by David Grohl who was tracking the vocals for “EverLong” in LA.       Again- and this is why a song is not just words - lyrics are VOICE plus words.  And the voice, if it is good, functions to enshrine language – elevate it beyond just the content of the words.  In Grohl's case, he doesn't have the range of someone like Mariah Carey or even Steve Perry from Journey.  But the voice is action and it's that movement that Grohl and all the Foo Fighters communicate.  Grohl screams at times, but his voice is communicating something beyond the words on the page.   What do you hear?    There's just an authenticity there.  I heard him talking about the origins of the song, Everlong and I was shocked when I learned that he doesn't even know how to read music.  He never studied formally.  He just strummed a new combination and heard a song.  I don't want to use the word innocence because that's not the right word, but it's this raw pursuit of wanting life and bringing people along and it has captivated the world- obviously only an authentic genius could ever do what he does, especially self-taught.  But, when you think about how songs, and this song in particular lives in the hearts of so many, we know that the human voice holds a special place.   It is a human instrument, where the soul, to sound mystical- unifies with the lungs, the diaphragm, the abs- to do something different.  But Let's look at those famous lyrics and talk about them.     Hello  I've waited here for you  Everlong  Tonight, I throw myself into  And out of the red  Out of her head, she sang  Come down and waste away with me  Down with me  Slow, how you wanted it to be  I'm over my head  Out of her head, she sang  And I wonder  When I sing along with you  If everything could ever be this real forever  If anything could ever be this good again  The only thing I'll ever ask of you  You've got to promise not to stop when I say when  She sang  Breathe out  So I can breathe you in  Hold you in  And now  I know you've always been  Out of your head  Out of my head, I sang  And I wonder  When I sing along with you  If everything could ever feel this real forever  If anything could ever be this good again  The only thing I'll ever ask of you  You've got to promise not to stop when I say when  She sang  And I wonder  If everything could ever feel this real forever  If anything could ever be this good again  The only thing I'll ever ask of you  You've got to promise not to stop when I say when      The words are simple- which is why they work as lyrics.  No one has time to explicate poetry while they're at a rock concert.  You have to understand the idea in a instant.     There is also a lot of repetition, when you just read it, like we did it feels redundant, but when you add the voice the repetition plays a different role.  It signifies hooks and choruses and gives us a sense of excitement and anticipation for the next drum riff or energetic pulse.      Well, the ear is listening for something different in music than it is in poetry.  Then you add the signature guitar riffs to that- you have a different emotional experience.  And I want to point out that all good music that people love is emotional. The song Everlong has two versions- the version with the whole band as well as just the acoustic version- both are powerful, but really two different experiences.  The emotions are different.       For sure, but Everlong, like all rock ballads is meant to be sung.  The contrasting anaphors of If everything, if anything, rhyme with the following line- the only thing----are drawn together in your ear because of that rhyme and they create this tension that leads you to the climatic line of feeling real.  In fact, that's the central idea- whether it be in the acoustic or the band version-  they both convey a universal feeling of holding on to one single moment- and making it feel eternal- holding on -look at the word he chooses- what is real.  It's really a paradox- eternity felt in a moment- on the surface it doesn't make sense, but it's a feeling we all have or at least want to have- and he expresses it so simply, with simple words- but the drums, the bass, the guitars plus the screaming vocals- make the idea completely alive.       “And I Wonder when I sing along with you” you feel the power of the line that “If everything could ever feel this real forever” whether your heart pounds with that overpowering electrical guitar or with just the strumming of the acoustic one- you're inspired to hold on- to feel the moment again- just like that repeating riff.    YOu know, Everlong is an interesting example of a hit song that grows into its success overtime.  People liked it when it came out, but over time it's just grown and grown to the point that it's the song everyone most wants to hear when they go to a Foo Fighters concert- and they end their concerts with it., but it wasn't that way at the first.  If you want their first hit that entered the BillBoard hop 100, you have to go to the next album they recorded called Echoes and the song from there that we all remember is Learn to Fly.      I want to ask a question, what is the BillBoards or the Billboard Hot 100- that is a term everyone uses to determine success.    Sure, Billboard is a magazine, Billboard biz is the online extension.  Billboard tabulates the popularity of songs on a weekly basis.  Sometimes the charts are genre specific, for example you have the country chart or the rock chart, but they cover all genres.  They are ranked according to sales, streams, airplay, thst sort of thing.  The Billboard Hot 100 combines all aspecits of a single's performance (sales, radio airplay and streaming activity) and ranks how successful any one song is, it has to be a single.   The top rated songs on Billboard will be the songs featured on radio because they draw the audience that leads to higher advertising rates.     The Song Learn to Fly actually won a grammy for its music video.  The lyrics were written, not just by David Grohl, but Taylor Hawkins the drummer and Nate Mendel.  By this point in the history of the Foo Fighters, What we have seen evolve is the vision of one man, Dave Grohl, into a collective- a brotherhood.  Foo Fighters by 1997 is no longer a one-man band.  “Learn to Fly” has three co-writers.  There have been a couple of entrances and exits over the years, but not many really.  Today Foo Fighters is David Grohl, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel, Franz Stahl, Rami Jafee, Pat Smear, and until his untimely passing Tayler Hawkins.    Let's read this famous anthem. “Learn to Fly”    Run and tell all of the angels  This could take all night  Think I need a devil to help me get things right  Hook me up a new revolution  Cause this one is a lie  We sat around laughin' and watched the last one die    Now, I'm lookin' to the sky to save me  Lookin' for a sign of life  Lookin' for somethin' to help me burn out bright  And I'm lookin' for a complication  Lookin' cause I'm tired of lyin'  Make my way back home when I learn to fly high  I think I'm dyin' nursing patience  It can wait one night  I'd give it all away if you give me one last try  We'll live happily ever trapped if you just save my life  Run and tell the angels that everything's alright    Now I'm lookin' to the sky to save me  Lookin' for a sign of life  Lookin' for somethin' to help me burn out bright  I'm lookin' for a complication  Lookin' cause I'm tired of tryin'  Make my way back home when I learn to fly high  Make my way back home when I learn to    Fly along with me, I can't quite make it alone  Try to make this life my own  Fly along with me, I can't quite make it alone  Try to make this life my own    I'm lookin' to the sky to save me  Lookin' for a sign of life  Lookin' for somethin' to help me burn out bright  And I'm lookin' for a complication  Lookin' cause I'm tired of tryin'  Make my way back home when I learn to  I'm lookin' to the sky to save me  Lookin' for a sign of life  Lookin' for somethin' to help me burn out bright  And I'm lookin' for a complication  Lookin' cause I'm tired of tryin'  Make my way back home when I learn to fly high  Make my way back home when I learn to fly  Make my way back home when I learn to        Again when you read the song, you see the repetition that characterizes a lot of great music.  You see the anaphoras    Now what is an anaphora    It's when you read the beginning of a phrase but you change the ending    Make my way back home when I learn to fly high  Make my way bak home when I learn to fly  Make my way back home when I learn to    In that case, the phrase starts the same, but the ending is different- in this case, it drifts off and is shortened each time.  The effect only works when you sing and play it.  The power is lost when you read it.  Song lyrics are just not the same as poetry for that reason- their power is different.      the rhythm bends the lyrics into different shapes or patterns that aren't the natural flow of conversation or even in reading poetry.  The percussive breaks the lines on the page, the rhyme and repetition springs out in different places than in normal poetry- for example the word “lookin'” it's all over the song and your ear catches it when we sing it, but if you just look at it on the page, it looks random.  I heard it said once that song lyrics exist in the air, and that is a good way of thinking about them.    When you watch a video of people watching the performance of this song, all you see are arms raised, everyone singing in unison, Everyone identifying something personal in those words.  They're looking for something honest- looking for something to help push through the absurd and in this song it's represented in the sky the sky.  This is a great example of how music and poetry for that matter  take a life of their own.  It's symbolic.  It's universal-  looking to the sky- but what does the sky represent?  Should we look up the archetype?  Is it something unattainable?  Is it something spiritual?  For each person, it's something totally different thing and you can see it in the eyes of every person in the stadium or in the field of the festival.  Kelly Clarkson asked the band, one time on her show, what it was the song was about- at least what it was for then when they originally wrote it,  Grohl revealed the secret.  At the time I wanted to become a pilot! I wanted to learn to fly.     Well, I can tell you, and I've seen that interview, too, the Foo Fighters absolutely know this song is about more than being a pilot.  And if you ever had any doubt, those doubts were laid to rest with the Rockin 1000.    Oh yes.  Tell us what that is.      So, in 2014, a man by the name of Fabio Zaffagnini had a vision to get Foo Fighters to come to Italy.  His plan was insane.  He wanted to unite 1000 musicians: drummers, guitarists, , bassists, vocalists, everything- and he did it.  In July of 2015, over 1000 musicisns gathered in a field in a little town in north east Italy called Cesena and together- in unison- all 1000 played this song “Learn to Fly”.  It's an amazing YouTube video, everyone should watch it.  At the end of their performance, Fabio appeals to the band and asks them to come play in their little town of Cesena.  Of course the band soon tweeted, “Ci Vediamo a presto, Cesena”- or See you soon, Cesena.      Well, I've watched that YouTube, and it almost makes you cry.  It's so beautiful, so passionate, how could they possibly say no.  Those musicians of every age- both men and women jumped, waved in the air, sang with their hearts.      Well, exactly and why would they. Three months after the Rockin 1000 video went viral, the Foo Fighters played in Cesena, on the night of the concert, Dave Grohl admitted to the audience that their video made him cry.  This group of musicians represent everything Foo Fighters is giving to the world: energy, passion, the fight and will to live and live well.  It's who the Foo Fighters are.  And there are endless examples of this band doing just that. On their tour of Iceland, the night before the concert they were out in the country having dinner when they drove past a barn where a group of local punk rockers were practicing.  The Foos stopped and went in and jammed with this little local band called Nilfisk AND invited them to play their original song “Jacking Around” as an opening act for the Foos.  The front man for this band at the time was 16 years old.      In May of 2005, they released one most of the most recognizable and highly regarded of all Foo Fighters, “Best of You.”  Prince even performed it during the half time show at SuperBowl.  Let's read these lyrics and talk about why this song has resonated around the world.     've got another confession to make  I'm your fool  Everyone's got their chains to break  Holding you  Were you born to resist or be abused    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you    Are you gone and on to someone new?  I needed somewhere to hang my head  Without your noose  You gave me something that I didn't have  But had no use  I was too weak to give in  Too strong to lose  My heart is under arrest again  But I break loose  My head is giving me life or death  But I can't choose  I swear I'll never give in, I refuse    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Has someone taken your faith?  It's real, the pain you feel  Your trust, you must confess  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Oh  Oh, ho-oh, oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh, oh  Has someone taken your faith?  It's real, the pain you feel  The life, the love you'd die to heal  The hope that starts the broken hearts  Your trust, you must confess  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  I've got another confession my friend  I'm no fool  I'm getting tired of starting again  Somewhere new  Were you born to resist or be abused?  I swear I'll never give in, I refuse  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Has someone taken your faith  It's real, the pain you feel  Your trust, you must confess  Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you  Oh  Well, first of all the word “best” is repeated 40 times.  And repetition is emphasis.  We know that.  This song is about that.  We all have secrets in their heads about themselves.  We all fight something inside to overcome the worst in us.  This song is a personal fight song, an anthem of recovery from brokenness.     It's also a lot about the drums.  Taylor Hawkins inspired the millions who watched him lead the band with this anthem.  His drumming was raw.  He pounds these eighth-note accents that you can hear from the back of a stadium.  There's so much power and energy- it's driving- it builds.      In an interview during that 2005 tour a journalist from the Globe and Mail asked Hawkins what kept his work interesting.  He said this,   “I'm scared to death every time I get on stage. I have insane stage fright. If Nate screws up, the beat goes on. If Dave screws up, everyone laughs. But if I drop the beat, we can all go down in flames. It's like jumping off a cliff every time.”      I don't know how you could NOT be.  So much is at stake.  10s of thousands of people have spent hundreds of dollars and come with astronomically high expectations to have their lives changed and to be inspired.        I can't imagine the weight of it.  But I think I understand, at least in part, the heart of it.  In 2011, the band released their 7th studio album.  Wasting Light would eventually win four grammies including Best Rock Album.  I think how they created that album really captures who they are as a band, what they represent and why their essence reverberates around the world.  Tell is the story, Garry,    Well, they decided to record in in Grohl's garage with no computers.  The album is messy, distorted, over the top and they had to rehearse for three weeks to even do it because they used old fashioned editing techniques that didn't allow for mistakes to be fixed in post-production.    And why do it?    Well, they wanted it to be real.  Grohl speaks to that at the Grammy's after they won Best Album of the year, and his words became highly controversial almost immediately.  He said this, ““This is a great honour, because this record was a special record for our band. Rather than go to the best studio in the world down the street in Hollywood and rather than use all of the fanciest computers that money can buy, we made this one in my garage with some microphones and a tape machine...It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer.”    So, what's controversial about that.      Well, it was taken to insult everyone else in the industry who is using auto-tune to fix their voices so they never go off key, or any number of editing tricks that could make someone like you or me sound like Rihanna with the right computer. Pro tools is the recording software that can make anyone sound like they are good.     The next day Grohl released a statement clarifying his comment.  This is what he said,        I love music. Electronic or acoustic, it doesn't matter to me. The simple act of creating music is a beautiful gift that ALL human beings are blessed with. And the diversity of one musician's personality to the next is what makes music so exciting and … human.”                That's exactly what I was referring to. The ‘human element.' That thing that happens when a song speeds up slightly, or a vocal goes a little sharp. That thing that makes people sound like PEOPLE. Somewhere along the line those things became “bad” things, and with the great advances in digital recording technology over the years they became easily ‘fixed.' The end result? I my humble opinion…..a lot of music that sounds perfect, but lacks personality. The one thing that makes music so exciting in the first place.And, unfortunately, some of these great advances have taken the focus off of the actual craft of performance. Look, I am not Yngwie Malmsteen. I am not John Bonham. Hell…I'm not even Josh Groban, for that matter. But I try really f—ing hard so that I don't have to rely on anything but my hands and my heart to play a song. I do the best that I possibly can within my limitations, and accept that it sounds like me. Because that's what I think is most important. It should be real, right? Everybody wants something real.  An interesting aside – live orchestra music actually prefers when the concert attendees cough and make noise. It proved the recording is a live take and the orchestra truly is as good as it sounds.  Everybody wants something real…there's that word again that brings us back to Camus…we do want real, we want honest, we want someone with the courage to show us what it looks like.  The history of the Foo Fighters is just one crazy example of this after another.   In Sweden in June of 2015.  They were in the second song of a show that consisted of 26 songs in front of 53,000 people, Grohl landed wrong from a jump and his ankle collapsed and he fell.  He had broken his leg.  The band didn't know what had happened and they just played.    Grohl grabbed the microphone, and said this, ““You have my promise right now that the Foo Fighters, we're gonna come back and finish this show,” he said. “But right now, ladies and gentlemen, I'm gonna go to the hospital, I'm gonna fix my leg. But then I'm gonna come back, and we're gonna play for you again! I'm so sorry!”    He handed over the show to Taylor Hawkins who led the band til Grohl came back an hour later.  They had to cancel a few dates, but by the fourth of July they had the problem solved.  They built a giant throne made just the occasion the Foo Fighters came out for their 20th anniversary Fourth of July blowout at RFK, and Grohl who screams and jumps lead the band sitting down.  That tour continued with 60 more shows.       And that's what I mean about fighting the absurd.  Taylor, Nate, Chris, Pat, Rami, Chris, Franz, Will and Dave lead with their lyrics, their beat, their riffs, but also their example.  This is what “not surrendering either to the absurd or to philosophical suicide can look like”.  This is what not giving in looks like.  This is what finding the best in yourself looks like.  Dave Grohl spoke about what it felt like when Cobain died.  He said at one point he didn't know if he ever wanted to play music again, but then he realized that music was the one that had healed him over the course of his entire life.  It had saved his life more than once.      I can absolutely understand and agree with this 100%.  Music absolutely been there for me personally and  has kept me sane in the worst moments of my own life.       Unfortunately, Dave and the rest of the band are going to have to face the full force and pain of absurd in a very personal way yet again.  On March 20th, Foo Fighters played at Lollapalooza in Argentina.  They ended their set with Everlong, as they usually do with Hawkins on the drum.  At the end of the song, Hawkins tossed his drum sticks to the audience, threw his arm over Grohl's shoulder, and took a bow with the rest of the band.  Although no one had any idea, this would be his last performance.     That night Dave Grohl ended the show with these ironic words, “I don't say goodbye,” Dave Grohl told the crowd before kicking it off. “I don't like to say goodbye. I know that we'll always come back. If you come back, we'll come back. Will you come back? If you come back, we'll come back, so then I won't have to say goodbye.”    Hawkins said goodbye, but the music he made, the energy he emitted does. not  And so, we end this episode saying, thank you, Foo Fighters.  Thank you for pushing forward, encouraging the world to not let the world get the best of us, for inspiring us to look to the sky, learn to fly and holding on to the moments of eternity when they come.    Thank you for sharing with us in this episode on a different sort of book- the music of the Foo Fighters.  As always please feel free to connect with us on any of our social media: FB, Insta, Twitter, LinkedIn.  Email us, tweet us, if you are a teacher, visit our website for educational support, if you are a friend, check out our merch on the website as well.  In any case, if you enjoyed this episode, please share it with a friend, when you share about us, we grow.      Peace out….
