Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.
Interview excerpt from the Dick Cavett show:
Although the title of this video is ‘Dick & Woody discuss Particle Physics’, they do anything but. They do talk about the exchange of blunt instruments. This is a hilarious interview excerpt, which really highlights Woody’s wit and command of the English language. I couldn’t imagine an interview of this sort or the innuendo suggested seeing the light of day in mainstream media today..….… (Watch entire excerpt).
Poem by Mike Ennenbach at Mike’s Manic Word Depot:
to the monumental
the world owed him
the chip on his shoulder
just a pebble
from the avalanche
of self doubt
leaving clouds of dust
aching footstep…..…Read Entire Poem
Poem at Intellectual Shaman:
Take a step back
you are dancing
before the two step
catch the room off-guard
enter the dangerous

Article by Pam at All Things Thriller:
True, Lynyrd Skynyrd didn’t really fit our vibe. There were no flourishes of heavy metal or brush strokes of new wave. Skynyrd didn’t dabble in pumped up studio antics that were the rage in those days; in fact, the band had disbanded after the tragic plane crashed that killed three of their members, including their alpha dog lead singer, Ronnie Van Zant in 1977.
That was before our time. There had been a cultural shift in the time between the plane crash and our coming of age.
Lynyrd Skynyrd, was THEN and we were NOW. The members had really long, unkempt hair; we desired men with short, edgy haircuts like Sting, of The Police, had...….(Read entire article)
I’m just as big of a fan of Dick Cavett than I am of his guests. Very intelligent interviews and you get to know the people…with Allen they were/are close friends. He doesn’t really interview…he has conversations unlike most other talk shows.
He is an excellent interviewer indeed. I haven’t seen many interviews with him, but from what I have seen so far, he is one of the best, if not the best. He interviewed Bobby Fischer and brought out the best in him and made him feel relaxed.
Cavett had conversations rather than reading a clipboard. If you ever get time check out the one with Marlon Brando and Bette Davis…excellent.
Ok will do. I think I saw the Marlon one. but I’ll seek it again.
Brando normally didn’t appear on talk shows…but because it was Cavett he did… but he demanded to have an Native American with him to talk about issues.
Footnote…it was after the interview…Brando and Cavett were in the street and Brando hit some photographer for taking his picture.
