  1. I've been to the site of the Hindenburg crash. In 1996, my friend Tom, my dog Duke, and I wanted to set to see if we could go on an adventure and stand on the actual site. After about an hour's drive, we arrived at a Naval Ar Station. We walked up to the building and asked the man at the desk if we could walk out to the site. He said "Sure" as it happened to be the day ( Wednesday) when the public is allowed to visit. In hindsight, it was very cool of the guy to be so casual about it, but I suppose two young men and their dog looked harmless enough. This was pre-9/11, of course, so things were much more relaxed then. There's a giant chain in the ground in the shape of an airship where the Hindenburg came to rest. There's also a banner in the shape of an airship denoting the location. We spent about half an hour there and left. It's quite chilling to stand where you've seen the events of that day taking place. There's a cool museum there for the public to visit. I wasn't aware of a museum being there at the time. I don't know if we missed it or it was put there after our Visiting the site now requires calling ahead to put your name on a list.
  2. Hey, oh, though the winds of change may blow around you But that will always be so
  3. Back on February 21st, 2007, Ahmed Raza, a member of 'For Badgeholders Only' posted the following:'According to the Sunday Telegraph, last weekend's issue, Peter Whitehead (renowned UK film producer/falconer/author) got Zeppelin down on film at The Roundhouse, London'James Liam Cook from The Telegraph did some research and found a mention of the event here:"Soon he was shooting the Stones in Dublin, Allen Ginsberg at the Royal Albert Hall and Led Zeppelin at the Roundhouse. In 1967, he shot Benefit of the Doubt, about the Vietnam War. Given Whitehead's approach - and the spirit of the times - one might assume that his films would be unwieldy monuments to self-indulgence. In fact, they're very sharply observed, often extremely funny and surprisingly cohesive. After making a documentary about Swinging London, called Tonite Let's All Make Love in London -typically, Whitehead claims to have been bored to tears by Swinging London - in 1968 he went off to New York intending to make a similar film there.
  4. Thank you. I will add this film to my 'Movies to See' list. I will also check out the others, especially 'Point Blank', which I've heard good things about numerous times. It's interesting that you mention the art deco Atlantic Richfield building as I'm also a big fan of the art deco style of design. That alone would be reason enough to watch this film. A film I recently discovered and really enjoyed was 'The Day of the Jackal". They just don't make films like that anymore.
  5. Oh yes, I'm counting the hours until this film is released. And I'll be first in line the day it is. Thanks for the recommendation on Zabriskie Point. I'll also check it out.
  6. The Page/Muni interview is the first I ever recorded. https://www.mixcloud.com/51965/1977-page-wnew-scott-muni-1/ https://www.mixcloud.com/51965/1977-page-wnew-scott-muni-2/ https://www.mixcloud.com/51965/playlists/zep-interviews/ EFDT
  7. "Scientifically proven" is meant tongue in cheek. And of course, it's subjective.
  8. I know this is mostly subjective, but this study from 2008 confirms what we already know- http://bit.ly/ledzepmusicstudy ( Click on the image and use the little magnifying glass icon on the upper right to enlarge) http://bit.ly/ledzepmusicstudy2 EFDT Where's that confounded fridge?
  9. I did not know that. Thank you, Sam.
