TheWrittenTevs: "Rick and Morty [is] the ultimate example of... the show that the creators think they’re making [being] completely different to the show that the audience thinks they’re watching. In interviews, the creatives all seem to think that Morty is the main character... The entire programme exists in an inherently cruel universe and Rick is presented largely as an extension of it – as someone who’s been torn down by the universe... and allowed himself to become just as bad as it is. As such, according to the show’s makers, R&M is primarily about how Morty and his family try to survive living in a hellscape world that seems to be actively sadistic towards them (something which I think has a lot of applicability to the modern sadistic hellscape that has become 21st Century Western Society) and thus is largely sympathetic towards them.

A large section of the audience seems to have watched the show and decided that Rick’s the main character though, taking the fact that Rick’s succumbed to the world around him to mean that he’s now the smartest person in the world and the only person who knows how the world around him really works, relating to him like on these grounds. In these regards, he’s basically our generation’s [Archie Bunker]..."

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:09pm

I view "free time" almost as "free love" - it doesn't mean just doing nothing all the time, it just means that you are the master of your time, not captive to others or society's views on it. And thus can plan your day and life accordingly.

As with "free love" - it doesn't imply screwing night and day, unless, of course, you've chosen that. (And given the choice..)

I wish I could pick up the FMU signal in my Jeep. I would have the piece of tape that says "Leave on WFMU...". The signal doesn't quite reach Arizona so it's old CDs in my ride

The problem with relying on DD or LC for unique identification of a work is that libraries vary how they assign them, particularly the so-called Cutter Numbers, which help to distinguish between works with the same shelf number.

For later ..

In 1975, there was a band in Baton Rouge called Sugar Daddy and the Gumbo Roux. That year, they recorded a song called "Inflation." Everybody in the band went on to make it in the music industry...except the lead singer Earnest Jackson.

So...we're giving Earnest a second chance. Releasing his long lost song, "Inflation," to try to make him a star.

Hello and welcome to Planet Money Records. It's part 1 of a series.
