One time I started writing a poem called DON DRAPER SELLS ME A USED CAR, which I never finished but here's what I got:

DON DRAPER SELLS ME A USED CAR

Don Draper slurred at us in a precovid conference room:

You must remember this.

For a moment we believed in the promise of a past we could trust, could hold aside, preserved.

I think all my earliest memories were actually home video

(You must remember this)

Recorded, and played back, ceaselessy against the past

So I picked up a camera and got in the business

of making false memories.

 

The old ones I once believed in are gone now

Dissolved on magnetic tape.

Teddy told me that "lacuna" means a hole in the bone

We use it to refer to gap in the fossil record.

We assume it is there, though.

It has to be.

The first in a series! Morgan and Zac get together to each select 10 songs from 2003 to create a mixtape that represents the best and most on-brand (for us) songs of the year. 

I don't want to put the list of songs or a playlist in the video info yet because I think it's fun to listen along. But if you look back at this podcast in a couple of days I will edit this description to include one. 

Thanks for listening!

as of today, august 2nd, guardians of the galaxy volume 3 is on disney+ (at least in the usa), which seems like a great time to drop me and morgan's conversation about it from back when we'd both recently caught it in theaters. watch the movie, come back here, listen to our chat. or whatever, i mean, do what you want. it's a free country. 

episode includes the following mashups/songs

"i'm always chasing rainbows" - alice cooper

"solsbury hill" - peter gabriel

"solsbury hill/big bank" - peter gabriel x yg (zl mashup)

"dog days are over" - florence + the machine

Quick note on spoilers! While we do talk about a bunch of TV shows, movies, and books in this episode, nothing in particular is really spoiled about ANY of them — sensitivity to spoilers—and where Zac P. and I have fairly different and yet complimentary philosophies about them —  in fact being a major topic of reflection here.

The only movie that I would say is significantly spoiled is The Fugitive, starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones, the 1993 film. And we don’t talk about that until the very end of the episode, so like, if its on your list on Max and you haven’t quite gotten to it — first of all I totally get it —just jump off the episode when you get there. 

Songs in this episode:

  • Crown on the Ground, Sleigh Bells
  • Stay Down Man, Dan Reeder
  • Stay Down Man, boygenius
  • Various bits from the Succession and Station Eleven scores
  • I’m Not Part of Me, Cloud Nothings
  • Mashup of Time After Time, Cindy Lauper / Demon Time, Lil Yachty
  • Mashup of Wayside/Back in Time, Gillian Welch, Lifetime Income, Larry June
