Bo 1:04:01 AM
Said the old folks
Dylan (host) 1:04:37 AM
Too late for a Tarantino tangent
Bo 1:05:26 AM
NEVER!
Dylan (host) 1:05:53 AM
lol
Dylan (host) 1:06:12 AM
Me talking to my ex two years ago
Bo 1:06:52 AM
I don't want to know!
Dylan (host) 1:07:13 AM
You really dont
Bo 1:13:14 AM
I heard part of this show first time around and I was trying to remember the movie where Robert Mitchum was singing a song about the danger's of running moonshine or something along those lines ???
Dylan (host) 1:13:40 AM
Thunder Road? Night of the Hunter?
Bo 1:14:19 AM
HA! WALA!
Bo 1:14:40 AM
Thank you!
Bo 1:16:04 AM
Old Knight Rider has a decent voice!
Dylan (host) 1:16:24 AM
Tangent: The Song "Thunder Road" was not inspired by the movie thunder road but by a poster that the Boss saw
Bo 1:17:24 AM
Boss? Bruce?!
Dylan (host) 1:17:38 AM
Is there any other?
Dylan (host) 1:18:11 AM
I also live near the moonshine capital of the world where the actual thunder road exists
Bo 1:21:24 AM
You are somewhere in Ireland ?
Dylan (host) 1:21:45 AM
East Tennessee
Bo 1:22:10 AM
Close enough ;)
Bo 1:23:42 AM
I'm Irish so it's Poteen not moonshine but more or less the same thing except we use the humble spud.
Dylan (host) 1:24:14 AM
We have our own traditions
Bo 1:24:54 AM
Aye indeed.
Bo 1:25:54 AM
My Granny was a Fox BTW!
Dylan (host) 1:25:59 AM
And now they've made it legal so it sucks
Dylan (host) 1:27:06 AM
I mean the Irish side of my family is the Woods side. Have no idea where the fox side comes from. All sides of my family were basically in my home town since before the civil war
Bo 1:30:39 AM
Very interesting, their are Woods' and tons of Fox's where I came from in County Tyrone, (Tir Eoghain) = Land of Owen.
Dylan (host) 1:31:39 AM
Most of my family history disappears in the smoky mountains around 1830
Dylan (host) 1:32:00 AM
But that's mostly the mulungeon side
Bo 1:32:21 AM
Like smoke can do that! ;)
Dylan (host) 1:33:35 AM
I mostly come out of the insane mystery of early America
Bo 1:34:48 AM
I have no doubt, I'm fascinated by the whole thing.
Dylan (host) 1:35:43 AM
A lot of infidelity and hiding of identities in my family history
Bo 1:36:23 AM
I'm sorry to hear that.
Dylan (host) 1:36:41 AM
Oh no, its great
Dylan (host) 1:36:57 AM
It's the south
Dylan (host) 1:37:53 AM
It's a land of tragedy baked into the DNA of everyone here. It's the pure darkness of America concentrated.
Bo 1:38:29 AM
Strangely enough I'm reading Elegy, though, to be honest I haven't picked it up in a while, have you read it?
Dylan (host) 1:38:48 AM
Hillbilly Elegy?
Dylan (host) 1:38:55 AM
I hate it on reflex
Bo 1:39:06 AM
Aye, yes, sorry!
Bo 1:39:29 AM
Refle
Bo 1:39:43 AM
*Reflex
Bo 1:40:03 AM
?
Dylan (host) 1:40:08 AM
Some guy who works for Peter Teil from Ohio thinks he understands white trash people and can show why they have a "culture of poverty." Same thing people said about black people in the 90s
Dylan (host) 1:40:49 AM
If you want to understand the South, read Absolum, Absolum by Faulkner
Bo 1:42:18 AM
OK, who the hell is Peter Teil?
Dylan (host) 1:42:48 AM
venture capitalist
Bo 1:43:54 AM
And the connection between J.D. Vance and him?
Dylan (host) 1:45:13 AM
J. D. Vance is a venture capitalist who worked with him
Dylan (host) 1:45:20 AM
I think
Dylan (host) 1:45:37 AM
But he is a venture capitalist, so basically a vampire
Bo 1:50:36 AM
Hmm, I haven't formed an opinion, He had a rough tough upbringing from what I've read so far.
Dylan (host) 1:51:53 AM
I mean I saw a car bomb go off on Christmas Eve when I was 12 but you don't see me trying to venture capital
Bo 1:54:07 AM
Are you serious?
Dylan (host) 1:54:16 AM
Living next to a druggies house just makes your life more interesting
Dylan (host) 1:55:17 AM
Like I would have to go inside from playing because he would just start shooting randomly into the woods, but he was my cousin, so what can you do?
Bo 1:56:34 AM
Nothing, did make a kill?
Dylan (host) 1:56:34 AM
Basically I've had the story of hillbilly elegy told to me a thousand times when people at Princeton hear that I'm from appalachia
Dylan (host) 1:57:25 AM
He's currently in prison rn.
Bo 1:57:49 AM
Ouch!
Dylan (host) 1:58:13 AM
Never would of hurt me on purpose, but did once shoot at his own trailer in order to wake his girlfriend up
Bo 1:58:38 AM
And?
Dylan (host) 1:59:21 AM
I guess she woke up idk
Bo 2:00:14 AM
OR DID SHE?!
Bo 2:00:35 AM
JK!
Dylan (host) 2:00:54 AM
I mean I saw her afterwards. She got on the cover of our local paper once for being the head of a oxytocin racket.
Bo 2:01:32 AM
That's novel!
Dylan (host) 2:02:31 AM
I think it was mainly the sheriff trying to get good publicity, but he still lost reelection...
Bo 2:03:54 AM
HA! Love it!
Dylan (host) 2:05:15 AM
Local drama...
Bo 2:05:15 AM
Have you ever watched the Film, Searching For The Wrong Eyed Jesus by Jim White?
Dylan (host) 2:05:22 AM
Ni
Dylan (host) 2:05:26 AM
No
Bo 2:08:28 AM
Well, I'll leave it up to you whether you will want to or not, it was an eye opener for me somewhat, lot's of great music and footage in it.
Dylan (host) 2:09:00 AM
Look up Applehouse films
Bo 2:10:08 AM
Sure will, thanks!
Bo 2:11:46 AM
Jim White is a musician and son of a Pentecostal Minister who fled the coup BTW.
Bo 2:13:29 AM
Jamaican Robert Mitchum ...Jaysus H.
Bo 2:19:30 AM
First record I ever held, (and bought) at my Primary School "Bring N Buy" Sale, I was six!
Bo 2:20:27 AM
Deep Purple tat is!
Bo 2:20:39 AM
*that
Dylan (host) 2:27:13 AM
Got some deep purple ready for monday
Bo 2:34:28 AM
I'll listen for that!
Bo 2:38:13 AM
Is Knoxville in East TN?
Dylan (host) 2:40:17 AM
Yes
Bo 2:44:04 AM
Regardless, the Knox family were some of the biggest land (stolen) owners in my Parish, (Eglish), Scottish Presbyterians, planted there by the English.
Dylan (host) 2:48:58 AM
Ah cool
Dylan (host) 2:49:08 AM
Or ah, terrible
Bo 2:51:02 AM
The English were terrible THAT IS for sure, the Presbyterians felt the same way.
Bo 2:52:29 AM
In the long run because they were Protestant they made out.
Bo 2:56:59 AM
Slainte Dylan, all the best!
