@Scott It's amazing and just the change of scenery I needed (figuratively and literally)! Currently reformatting and setting up an old computer so I can watch movies in the bedroom and listen to music on the balcony while I chill & grill. 🌿🔥🍗🥩👨🏾‍🍳📻

Final Fall of Saigon & raising of North Vietnamese Flag, filmed by Australian Neil Davis. He also filmed the famous summary execution of a Suspected Viet Cong on the streets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am Brian D:

@Scott67, another Neil, Neil Sheehan (an Irish-American) did some of the most important reporting on the war. The Pentagon Papers later, but his book "Bright Shining Lie" is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am Scott67:

John Pilger is Australian too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am Scott67:

Neil Davis was killed by shrapnel from a Government Tank shell. While filming a failed Coup attempt in Bangkok, 1985.

Jose Rizal was meant to be shot in the back as a traitor, but, apocryphally or not, he turned around to face them at the last moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am diciassette:

I'll be doing a lot of reading later!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am Scott67:

Also, hello
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am Scott67:

G'day Fox, I congrats on your show man! I caught some of it, in & out of sleep. But was too incoherent to comment. Actually that's me normally!
🍺😉🤙
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am Scott67:

Right on Fred!👍😎
Avatar 4:39am Fox:

Thanks, Scott67.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am Brian D:

Thank you, Fox.

Yep!!💀🤘🔥⛏🛠
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am Brian D:

Hello Fred!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am diciassette:

oh my gosh mixing up Clash & MIA, but I suppose you might be able to figure out how that happened.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41am Brian D:

Indeed, Di, indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am diciassette:

How important are the Clash. Will we ever really know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46am Brian D:

Can't imagine navigating this world without the Clash, Di...
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:50am fred:

@diciassette: On that same record, MIA also quoted New Order and The Pixies, which is pretty cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am Brian D:

Got much love for MIA.
  4:56am Eric from Detroit:

Brilliant use of a cover of masters of war

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02am Scott67:

Patton channels Ozzie.
Avatar 5:04am Fox:

I love Patton. It's amazing how much his voice has matured. He always had range, but he transformed from slightly nasal metal voice to... everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Brian D:

Indeed, Fox. Great version of that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08am Scott67:

I think his voice had no choice but to evolve, to keep up with his musical mind.
Avatar 🗒 5:45am Hoboken Jack:

Good morning, Brian -- sounding good! Hi Scott67!
