Listen: Seattle, Air Force Major, New York discussed on Omnibus! With Ken Jennings and John Roderick
"One of the great Dylan albums. Have you ever recorded an album with a track sixty one know how close did you got up to track? Ten is. There any hurt. What about that? They might be giants work at the house of a little mini song. Oh, please pass the milk. Please. Is that track? On being or tips pink. Aren't you? The guy that hit me, and I wonder how many of those we could just sing if we tried to think of all of them instead of talking about the actual trombone and recon car, and there's what's that blue thing do wing here. Track. Sixty one is a mysterious. I knew it was mysterious. You know, why why? Because it sounds like area fifty one it does it's like ten more mysterious than area fifty one. Although it's not as mysterious is fifty one it. It's you can actually see track sixty one without too much trouble. You don't have to climb up to to a peak is that how you saw area fifty one. You climbed up to a peak. No, I I saw area fifty one when they tried to dissect me when I finally arrived on earth. But then I adopted a it's like, you're. Island. I go back there with your family here. It is guys. This is how I came to this great land. I adopted the the shape and form of an Air Force Major and killed everyone in the room, and then took the elevated at the surface, and then you chose a third form which is this rule, which is this. You were briefly an Air Force Major but just for a few minutes. No. Then after I got to the service. I spread my black wings and flew to Seattle where I you just do my final four, you're your. This is David is vital four. Well, that's great the secret origin. Yeah. Secret origin of well. At least my time on earth. You don't know where I came from what I really am. But even with all that access you have you ever been to track sixty one. No. Although I've seen track sixty one trek sixty one is visible as you leave Grand Central station on any train headed out particularly trains on the left hand side, you'd be heading what north north out of Grand Central. Track. Sixty one is a train station under the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. So you can picture the Waldorf Astoria there on Park Avenue just north of Grand Central like the forties midst fiftieth, maybe it is on forty nine forty nine or so just there between Parkin lex. This is the kind of thing where people who live in New York and L I think that everyone should understand all their local reference lines. And here we are just rambling on and there are many many people listening the show who've never been to New York, and in fact, future links may think of New York as just a giant crater in the middle of of of what is the Hudson river to them, or maybe it's the spark river like the ground zero monument is actually in the middle. They much larger ground zero monuments, like just concentric ground zeroes. Now, there's there's just this the top of the Empire State building just sticking out of the water. They're sticking out of a giant bay. You know, we have a lot of local references on this show. It's to Seattle city that we know no one actually understands or can visualize they think of Seattle as an archipelago of small weird islands filled with filled with basically sentient, fleece. I've seen a map of projected Seattle. When if the polarized caps were to completely no have you seen this map? I have are you on dry land. I am because this is pretty high hit is I possessed the map in fact, and you know, when I bought this house, I made certain that it would survive any any superheated lahar from any."
