Fifteen Minutes, Fifteen Minute, Fifty Years discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory


So I have my answer on coast to coast AM I went to wiki and that was wrong there is I always thought I'm coming home I've done my time was just song about a convict this is the start of tight yellow ribbon in fact this isn't it very clearly not the story of a convict who had told this love to tie a ribbon would to a tree outside of town I know because I wrote the song one morning fifteen in fifteen minutes with the late lyrical genius when Levine this is these are the words of L. Russell brown the co author the genesis of this idea came from the age old folk tale about a union prisoner of war who sent a letter to his girl that he was coming home from a Confederate POW camp in Georgia anything about a criminal is pure fantasy well I mean I was eleven don't be so harsh I am hi that's why assignment but okay fair enough so it is about a returning that but that so let's go to we go back to open lines on coast to coast AM and the it Sir Christopher is in cedar rapids Christopher Hey how you doing doing great we're going to take us so originally I was going to talk about my background witchcraft but since the night we're talking about war I would give my two cents about the fear of the Cold War your the one that we already had or one that might be coming well with the general fear that you know what would happen if nuclear war came out so I would rather for than I want to you know get a little blurb about trust because but you know during the eighty there were a lot of beers you know that you know no the tension between the U. S. rush you know you know people were afraid no that Reagan was gonna be the one who's gonna push the button lots on news and one of the people who thought that with Nick Meyer who directed the popular TV movie the day after yep and then there was the more handsome British version thread who directed that but no the fear of what happened before during and after a nuclear attack seems to be the last of a issue with them modern day America but still the whole problem lingers the route time as new nuclear weapons get more and more and more and hands okay so I'm thinking if there was and on the episode of the Americans from years ago they actually showed some clips of the day after so once again as would be beneficial if something like the day after threats were to be remade well for modern audiences yeah that's an interesting idea I think Nick Meyer might even be the guy to do it you know it's I think it's still active he was on we had a month coast to coast on the anniversary of Star Trek two the wrath of Khan get a book out at a news agree he was a great interview used to one of my favorite interviews actually so yeah I mean I think that's where we are in a lot of ways is this show down with it's not just prudent I think now we we can think about and we weren't really thinking about China so much of the time it was all focused on Russia but now there's many nuclear threat so okay Maria as well yeah exactly but if you had a quick thing you want to see because coast yeah so listening to close because for several years I mean you and richer and George and even back then with the late ourselves you guys really think was inspired me to follow up on now food of the now broadcast and journalism is which I'm studying right now a good where right now I'm going to work with me to college without going to transfer to the university of Iowa that's great I was city fun town yeah and someday hopefully I can be a host fun because because hell yeah I guess I believe I'm I wait every week for them to call me and tell me I'm done so the terrible you I'll keep the chair warm for you to be ready and in the meantime get get that get that degree done and by the way you're doing it right I'd actually that's totally fair to do you know all of those prerequisites at a community college lot cheaper you can even get it done faster and then and then then get you to a a larger university program and university of I was terrific hawk eyes good luck right thank you for jumping in let's go to see where we start with next I think our next one would be Blair in Sedona on coast to coast where AT and it's now July twentieth twenty nineteen exactly fifty years after our first walk on the moon and I had lunch with Apollo fourteen Victor Mitchell here in Sedona back in nineteen ninety nine cool well I was the AV check for chat and police the snows earth mysteries and WNEM symposium held at the Sedona Shelton you rock yeah it's awesome say that again check in police trucking police does what Dr chats slow and his wife police the snows earth mysteries and the millennium symposium at the down the hill from the nineteen ninety nine all right so pause with me here revel in that that is so Sedona what you just said that it's so Sedona wonderful town but that whole idea of space mysteries looking over this guy's lets you feel that every time I'm in in Sedona that's great thank you so so what did you so you happen to be then one of the astronauts came for that event I might come up and I was one of the few that didn't pester about what he saw on the moon matter of fact doctor Mitchell with a little bit for turbine he was telling people if he's basically the you brought out the letter X. sciences in nineteen seventy three if you remember when he came back from the mony had and actual experience he called Mahdi when you look at the stars and the moon and the sun it was ecstasy and he had this epiphany that sold the seats for his next mission as always talking about the spiritual potentials of humanity yet at the same time doctor Mitchell was going through a period that I've heard other astronauts went through Ian where I got less than he passed away in twenty sixteen but during lunch which I was surprised I asked them if you want to join me for lunch and the whole way and he said yes which surprised the heck out of me that affect us in the photo to Gina of me and doctor me all cool which is that if you were clear channel email chain smoking cigarettes and he was drinking Bourbon yet these drinking hard liquor during lunch and I was noticing people asking about we saw the movie said he had a fifteen minute blank out and he refused to talk about it so I thought that was sort of interesting to throw in the mix tonight yeah that okay so if he's doing it hard Bourbon at lunch they're samadhi for you right which if that's the if I if we're talking about the same thing somebody being the yoga you'll get garb Buddhist or Sanskrit whatever meditative consciousness that'll get you there but this is really interesting so your your experience with him reminds me you know you have would you like people up it's very intimate moment isn't it when you because you have to kind of touch somebody to really get in their physical space and so when I'm being miked up by people I I never mind it but I know other people get really touchy and they're like no no I'll do it myself and they don't like to have other people Mike them for them what do you learn when you're miking some but when you were making somebody of for all those years that you were doing that professionally what did you learn about the person who is about to be interviewed by making them up it was something for you fill it in your solar plexus tell me about them yeah it's a situation where that's where like the spirit enters the solar plexus you get it mediate sense if you're in past six of what the person is going to be if the life and with a lot of them there would be a calm serenity doctor Larry tachi comes to mind you pop show truck comes to mind and then there are others that I was I mention names of the negative I don't wanna you know sound like you're not doing this work but there are others like doctor Bernie Siegel where I saw the disjointed mess and interest or just help that we're all human Ian and we all right different strokes is like the moody blues song right my sea sauce you know up and down and around in our six six six body of carbon atoms you know we just so interesting thank you for answering that question because I I I don't get miked up like I used to I don't do TV like I used to but I always sort of enjoyed that experience when somebody would come in and they'd be like in there they were professional about it but is a kind of a moment reads one of those rare times when somebody else might have their hand up your sweater yeah you know and you get like others like almost a connection to and a good Mike guy or or women you know somebody who's doing the Mike work on something like that you really do sort of feel an odd connection I always do so thanks I really enjoy that and that's interesting you know what it's it also you kind of what it goes to is this idea of depression of people who've been in space there's a lot of research about astronauts who has spent even a little time and space that is spend the rest of their life dealing with the depression and it's not because they faked the moon landing I don't believe it's just because there's something about having gone through something with so few people on this planet have but also just like that where Mitchell said there's fifteen minutes he blanks out on any stricken Scott Bourbon at noon I don't know and yeah but that that idea to about about depression in space and willing brings back to that conversation with the guy was trying to say that Neil Armstrong became a virtual recluse was only around for a week or so after the moon landing I it's somebody what I I I'm in regular conversation with people on Twitter at deacon pundit D. E. A. C. O. N. P. U. N. N. E. T. T. and somebody remind me about all the commercials that Neil Armstrong is due for Chrysler I haven't typical of your hermits when I go to a birch who's in the Daytona beach Florida on coast to coast AM Burt this moon hoax is absolutely driving me nuts we'll talk about that you call the right the doctor is in you can look this up in nineteen sixty one there was a professor at Princeton who got permission to put me here on the mountain it's still functioning to day there's a group of people that shoot a laser at it and measure is it's coming or going you need to get these people are okay here's your M. protocol proof I love that idea so there's a mirror on the moon I don't know why I didn't know this before yeah you know because it you know packaging was really tight they needed the light experiments that were simple simple to deploy right I guess they had the abort the mission and you know take off and it Amir.

Coming up next
