Episode 39 of notmovingpictures is a rambling discourse between Tommy and myself as we make the oh so long drive to Denver to see Megadeth in concert. Among the myriad of topics we touch on are:
Psychedelics/marijuana and their medicinal abilities and how Big Pharma wants treatments, not cures
How the music industry has changed in our lifetimes
What taking a road trip to see bands means to us
The need to rid ourselves of career politicians and why outsiders like Sanders, Trump and Carson are finding support
The culture of fame in sports, music and politics
Police shootings, faux outrage and no outrage about Flint
The news we are presented with is slanted and biased
Military operations and bombings in countries without Congressional approval
Obama being more Conservative than Bush but not recognized in the press
Laws attempting to be passed in the guise of religious freedom that really discriminate
As you can see we roamed over a lot of territory but it was the most interesting part of the drive. The Oklahoma Panhandle and Southeastern Colorado both have a glaring lack of things to keep you interested. Just miles and miles of farmland whichever way you look. So go ahead and listen.
