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

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Okay so I have my answer on coast to coast AM I went to wiki and I was wrong there is I always thought I'm coming home I've done my time was just a song about a convict this is the start of tie 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 Irwin 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 hi that's why I thought of mad but okay fair enough so it is about returning that come with that so let's go to we go back to open lines on coast to coast AM and it's Christopher 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 and witchcraft but then when I 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 nuclear war came out so about whether first and I want to you know get a little blurb about because because but you know during the eighties there were a lot of beers you know that you know no when 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 was 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 within modern day America but still the whole problem lingers out time as new nuclear weapons get more and more and more is hands okay so I'm thinking if there was and on the episode of the Americans from years ago they actually showed some of the day after so once again as would be beneficial if something like the day after and 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 he's I think he's still active he was on we had among coast to coast on the anniversary of Star Trek two the wrath of Khan get a book out 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 it in a lot of ways is this showdown 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 three as well yeah exactly and 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 chores and even back then with the late ourselves you guys really think was inspired me to follow up on now to those of you know broadcast and journalism is which I'm studying right now good where right now I'm going to crib with community college with them going to transfer to the university of Iowa that's great I was any fun town when Sunday hopefully I can be a host fun because the color hell yeah I got it 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 but in the meantime can't 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 a lot cheaper you can even get it done faster and then and then then get you to a a larger university program and receive I was terrific Hawkeyes 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 tech for chat and kalista snows earth mysteries and the millennium symposium held at the Sedona Hilton you yeah I saw some say that again check in Philly talking police does what Dr caps no and his wife kalista snows earth mysteries and the millennium symposium at the sit down the hill and the nineteen ninety nine hi it's a 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 the skies that's 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 pastor 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 the Mahdi when you look at the stars and the moon and the sun it was ecstasy and he had this to fit the needs of so 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 offered other astronauts went through Ian where I stop lesson 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 with surprise 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 yes these drinking hard liquor during lunch and I was noticing Alaska was always on the move the city had a fifteen minute break 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 Gerber Buddhist or Sanskrit whatever meditative consciousness that'll get you there but this is really interesting so you were 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 are my king 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's about to be interviewed by making them up it was something for a Philippine your solar plexus tell me about them yeah it's a situation where that's where like the spirit in your state to the solar plexus you get a a median sense if you're in plastic of what the persons in the VFC light and with a lot of them there would be a calm serenity is doctor Larry thought she comes to mind you pop show for our comes to mind and then there were 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 thought the disjointed miss and it's just it's just health is we're all human Ian and we all are 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 not 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 and they were they were professional about it but it is a kind of a moment or it's 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 feeling not connection I always do so thanks I really enjoy that and that's interesting you know what it's it also you kind of when 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 to fifteen minutes he likes out on any stricken Scott Bourbon at noon and yeah but that that idea to about about depression in space and willing brings back to the 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 it's somebody would I I I'm in regular conversation with people on Twitter at deacon pundit D. E..
