Phil and Jake are joined by singer-songwriter Tim Hause to rank volcanoes and the song “American Pie” by Don McLean on the List of Every Damn Thing.Follow Tim on Instagram (@timbillhause) and Twitter (@timBILLhause). Check out his collaboration with brother Dave Hause on the fantastic new record “Blood Harmony” (which you can also find on Spotify & Apple Music). And see them play live near you! If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook). We also have a subreddit!SHOW NOTES: Phil looked up people pronouncing “human” like “yu-man” and apparently it's how people in NYC, Philadelphia and some places in Ireland say it. Phil is from rural California and although he used to live in NYC, he moved there as an adult. This clip features a scientific explanation of how Paul Bunyan and Babe the Big Blue Ox created the Grand Teton mountain range by roughhousing. We discuss a number of volcanic-relevant geographical locations including Mount St. Helens, The Road to Hana, Mount Shasta, Panum Crater, Pompeii, Arenal Volcano and Long Valley Caldera. Dr. Pimple Popper is a dermatologist who makes videos of pimples being popped. Look, the world isn't always that great, this sort of stuff is out there. We briefly discuss a volcano that erupted in the 19th Century, affecting global weather patterns and creating a year without a summer. The eruption in question was that of Mount Tambora in 1815 (the Year Without a Summer was the following year). It's also hypothesized that a similar thing happened in the 6th Century. Joe Vs. the Volcano is a 1990 film by John Patrick Shanley (Moonstruck) starring Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan (in multiple roles). It's a fun movie that lost a lot of money. Phil talks about underwater animals that survive from “geothermal” heat, but the real term is "hydrothermal vent". These animals have a whole little ecosystem that doesn't need sunlight. They live in one of the few truly alien environments on Earth. Jake mentions the use of McLean's song in Black Widow, but we can't remember the name of the character Yelena Belova. “The Day the Music Died” is a reference to Feb. 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly, Richie Valens & Big Bopper died in a plane crash.  Jake mentions the 1969 Altamont Free Concert, which is considered one of the end-markers of the 1960s. He incorrectly refers to the killing of a woman at the concert, when in fact it was an eighteen-year-old man (named Meredith) who was stabbed to death. Three other people also died at the concert. Songs we compare “American Pie” to include “Black Betty” by Ram Jam, “Turn! Turn! Turn!” by The Byrds, “Cats In the Cradle” by Harry Chapin, “You're So Vain” by Carly Simon, “The First Cut is the Deepest” by Rod Stewart, “Night Moves” by Bob Seager, “Mrs. Robinson” by Simon & Garfunkel, “The Saga Begins” by “Weird Al” Yankovic, “Cherry Pie” by Warrant, “Sweet Potato Pie” by Domino, “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” by Dionne Warwick and “Roly Poly” by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. We compare it to a few Billy Joel songs (“We Didn't Start the Fire”, “Piano Man” and “Only the Good Die Young”). There's been an ongoing reassessment of Billy Joel (since about 2009 when this LA times blog defended him). Here's a Vice defense, and here's Jon Gabrus' "High and Mighty" Billy Joel episode. We also discuss Taylor Swift's “All Too Well” and the “American Pie” cover by Madonna. Don McLean's twenty-seven year-old girlfriend is Paris Dylan. She and former NBA player Chris "Birdman" Andersen were both victims of a catfishing scheme a few years ago that's too weird to even explain but here's an honest attempt. Here's the Cocaine & Rhinestones episode on the Louvin Brothers (which talks about blood harmonies). We never say the name of their band, but when we talk about Matt Hock & Dave Walsh we're of course talking about Space Cadet.

Welcome to Blackbird9's Breakfast Club's Wednesday podcast, "Last Hero Journey Of Robert Bly". Tonight we look at the life of Poet and Men's Movement Leader Robert Bly. https://www.blackbird9tradingposts.org/2021/12/08/last-hero-journey-of-robert-bly-blackbird9/In the First Hour we cover the chaotic events brought on by the teachings of the Frankfurt School Marxists. Their mission has always been to establish a Greater Israel ruled by globalism under the direction of Talmudic Noahide Law and at the same time force all other nations to surrender their independent sovereignty. In the second hour of "Last Hero Journey Of Robert Bly" the host examines the life and works of Poet Robert Bly ( 23 December 1926 - 21 November 2021). From the Epic of Gilgamesh, the tales of Brave Ulysses, the Quest for the Golden Fleece by Jason and The Argonauts, the Labors of Hercules, the adventures of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the Love Poems of Rumi, the Collective Unconsciousness Archetypes of Carl G. Jung, the Fairy tale symbolism of Marie Louise von Franz, the Hero with a Thousand Faces of Joseph Campbell, the American Tall Tales of Paul Bunyan and Babe The Blue Ox, to the 1990 reboot of the fable of Iron John that became a Rallying Cry of the Modern Men's Movement, the host discussed the history and importance of Tales of The Hero's Journey to a healthy society.

Special topics for your consideration include: the potential redemption of James McAvoy (we'll see), CGI bug babies and the feelings they stir up, trying to be friends with Jessica Chastain, a generalized disdain for giant Paul Bunyan, and the return of a classic recurring gag for us.  Last week (Episode 351) we discussed the first half of this unendingly long film series. In Episode 97 we discussed the miniseries. And just for fun, in Episode 126 we discussed "Cabin in the Woods," which I mention only because it's the spookytimes season and it's still one of my (Katie) favorite spookytimes movies of the last decade.

Did You Know That The Grand Canyon Was Carved By Paul Bunyan? Welcome to June 28th, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate peace of mind and tall tales.  More after the break. Just about everyone buys insurance in one form or another, most likely it's for their cars or homes. But there's one insurance company that does things a bit differently. Lloyd's of London offers policies for things most of us wouldn't even think to insure. For example, Bruce Springsteen insured his voice for $6 million. Keith Richards has his hands insured in case he's no longer able to play guitar. Both Heidi Klum and David Beckham have insured their legs, though for different reasons. On National Insurance Awareness Day, take the time to review your policies and coverages. Insurance is something you think you'll never need—until you do. Paul Bunyan first appeared in print in 1906.  But it wasn't until 1914 that a logging company advertisement made the lumberjack with the red plaid shirt and his blue ox a part of American folklore.  These tall tales fueled our imagination with larger than life explanations. His ax carved the Grand Canyon as he dragged it behind him. The Great Lakes became watering holes for Babe the big blue ox.  Today there are statues of this legendary duo that remind us of the grandeur of our own natural resources.  It's as if Paul Bunyan's character showed us how to take in the size and splendor of our precious country.  On National Paul Bunyan Day, celebrate the tall tales that help us measure the worth of our own neck of the woods.  I'm Anna Devere and I'm Brian Reinbold.  Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.

WGB #99: Donnie Isn't a Hit Anymore

We Gotta Believe

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 22, 2021 53:48


When the offense was in trouble and the team was barely treading water, we needed a hero to save us. A larger than life folk hero that could swing a bat like Paul Bunyan and whose motto in life was to 'hit dingers.' We needed Donnie "Diesel" Stevenson because the Mets needed some levity to their extremely slow start and Mets fans needed just about anything else to focus on other than the lack of base hits with runners in scoring position. It was funny, quirky and natural and that's what Mets fans appreciated. What we don't appreciate is the forced spectacle of this past weekend. Pete Alonso had gone social media silent (right call) for the entire year and came out of hibernation in one of the cheesiest ways possible. Listen, we get trying to drum up some all-star votes, but not at the cost of the team's positive momentum. It doesn't have any direct impact on the on-field play, but if your team's been in first place 6 weeks running, you don't need gimmicks, you just need to keep winning. And now, since the emergence of this WWE wannabe Donnie the Mets' bats have gone silent. You don't spit in the face of the baseball gods, you don't bring the circus into the clubhouse and you certainly don't cut full length videos trying to jump from fourth to first in voting. You get on the field and actually hit your way to the top. The team back slid, barely scoring any runs over the 4 game series with the Nationals. Has the clock finally struck midnight on the BenchMob's Ball? Is the shine of the replaceMets wearing off to show the true blue Triple-A players? Probably, but this was never a longterm solution anyway. We made it through an avalanche of injuries and back out the other side with hardly a scratch on us and that's all you could ask for. The team remains 4 games ahead (as of this recording) and our big bats are finally coming back. Jeff McNeil is here with Michael Conforto on the way and the lineup that we were hoping for can actually start to get back on track. Will that mean Rojas has to make some tough decisions? Yes. Will he make the right ones? Who knows. All we know is we have a nice cushion and in-division games to widen the field even more. The gauntlet is nearly over, but not before a double header death march starting with the Braves and Phillies. deGrom has already been tapped to start game 1 whether we like it or not and KFC could not be more upset with that decision. It just feels like a disaster waiting to happen, but if the doctors and tests say he's good then we gotta believe that he'll continue to ascend towards goat-ness. Keep the ace in your prayers and buckle up because if there is a June Swoon looming, nows the time to snuff it out.
