Episode 29: Greatest Ever Haircuts, Small Talk, Everyday Heroes, Unchained Melodies: BECK!, and Bartleby, the Scrivener

This week Dave and Steel are joined by their friend Julia to discuss their best and most memorable haircuts, the recent revival of the Yul Brenner sci-fi classic Westworld, a huge, beautiful net that’s been installed over Boston’s Greenway, and lower level Spanish football jerseys made to look like ham. The trio also give respect to a trio of everyday heroes, share six favorite songs from Beck’s incredible, eclectic musical career and Julia drops some books wisdom from Herman Melville’s “Bartleby, the Scrivener”.

Small Talk

  • Westworld, a fantastic film starring Yul Brenner was so good that HBO has decided we need more, much more [Dave].
  • This net over the Greenway in Boston is awesome. We should have one everywhere [Julia].
  • Some lower league Spanish football uniforms have been made to look like ham [Steel].

Everyday Heroes

  • Tate Peschka, one of Dave’s coworkers at the Anasazi Foundation [Dave]
  • My mom. No but seriously. She broke her kneecap recently 🙁 — poor mom. She’s a good mom though. Also an anesthesiologist. Very impressive word to teach your kids to say. [Julia]
  • Arnold Abbott, this 90 year old guy in Broward County, Florida who has been serving meals to the homeless for decades in memory of his now deceased wife. Got arrested and made the news recently [Steel].

Unchained Melodies: Beck Edition

  1. How can you guys dedicate an entire unchained melodies to Beck and not even mention Song Reader, which is perhaps the most interesting album from a conversation standpoint?
