WHAT'S UP WITH THE HISTORY CHANNEL?

On this, a hot day of the year up here in the northern climes, we are considering this history channel interview the ol Cap'n undertook; just exactly what went down and by whom and when will it appear? The history channel is doing a show on the scintillating Sixties but when it will appear we don't know yet but when we do know we will let everyone know. The history channel hired a crew from HappyTrailers located in Venice, California, to do the west coast interviews including among others, Wavy Gravy, Paul Krassner and the ol Cap'n.

These are not the questions asked by the History Channel interviewer but some of what was covered by the Cap'n can be found here on the website in other interviews by other people by clicking on:

MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2005

Beat down, beat up, beat to the bone, boning up on the beat, keeping up the beat, tapping the foot, counting the dead brain cells scattering in the breeze, I am now recovered from the marathon History Channel interview conducted over the weekend by three stellar gents from Venice, California, extracting every single bit of anything lurking in my mind and now I am free, unencumbered, ready to tackle the next big castastrophe, er, I mean debacle, no, it is a celebration and I'm not talking about the solstice tomorrow, I am talking about the Fourth of July exactly two weeks from today so it is balls to the wall prep time and off I go into the wild green jungle . . .


ALL THREE

Lance on the left, he be the organizer, the interviewer. Gallo on the right, the cameraman, eyes to the stars.

Here's Reno, sound man extraorinaire and driver el superbo.

HERE THEY COME AGAIN

Yes, that dashing trio from Venice, California, giving up prime beach time to pursue professional careers, have returned to Oregon, under contract with the History Channel, this time to interview Mountain Girl, AKA, Carolyn Garcia.

Reno on sound and lights. Gallo on the camera. And Lance with the clipboard full of pertinent questions: "Just how long have you had your dog?" Etc.

The very subject, herself, "Do you mean my first dog, or my last dog or all those dogs in between. There was a mountain dog."

Also a Capn Dog, unable to restrain hisself, unrestrained, untrained, off his leash, tie that dog up, get him away from the camera, we have an interview to conduct her, haruumph. And off he goes, peeing merrily on the bushes, tail waggin, tongue dragging, ears drooping, hide under the house, sleep the day away. Pant pant.

THERE THEY GO
WITH A STOP AT THE KESEY STATUE

ALWAYS SHOOTING, ALWAYS DIRECTING, OVER HERE, OVER HERE.

KESEY IS A FRIEND OF MIND -- LANCE

Too obtuse for my peruse, although isn't that a raccoon in there?

The Kesey statue is now a Kesey Free Library where people leave books on the bench.

Say goodbye to the Venice Trio: Lance, Gallo and Reno, three steadfast fellers.
