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.

In other news, Tuesdays W/ Morgan is back -- first episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=320EfMDqCG0
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!
how long can i keep this episode title up before robin pecknold sues me for vibe infringement?
a new episode of MAKE A MIXTAPE, a podcast by zac little
this episode was recorded w/ friend of the pod tom -- a while ago. it was actually the first mixtape interview, before it was even a done deal that the podcast was changing over to this format more or less permanently. it was recorded a couple of days after i released an episode called "document drama/quarantine the past" and toward the end, we talk about it.

echoes - pink floyd

late night - ODESZA
all for the best - thom yorke
my girls - animal collective

foxglove - murder by death (jam in the van version)
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.

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.
