Ossy Hyouka 3:08:18 PM
Hey Es! Nice to hear of your vacation in the wilds. I recall long long ago going to the Poconos with loads of family! Great times, indoors away from scary wildlife lol
Ossy Hyouka 3:10:03 PM
Brings back a few weeks back Lizbot, shared her funny crazed stories of camping to me, on her last show of canoeing and bears XD
Guelove 3:10:44 PM
Starting out so goood! Ghibli thank you!!! good to have you back Eso, this is my FAVE song from my FAVE movie :,)
Esoterica (host) 3:10:54 PM
Hi, Os! Great to see you here. Yes, i even pretended to be a bear in the woods as my friends were lazing by a dock (haha), did some light growling and i heard them say, did you hear thatht??!! what is it?! priceless I was laughing so hard into my hand haha
Esoterica (host) 3:11:41 PM

Ossy Hyouka 3:24:40 PM
Hahaha scary! Next time, do a mountain lion sound, since they screech like that!
Li Maria 3:24:56 PM
Didn't realize you were such a prankster, Eso!
richard lyons 3:25:38 PM
Ossy Hyouka 3:26:43 PM
Did you know black bears have a variety of colors, like white, which looks like a polar bear https://www.google.com/search?q=kermode+bear&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwi1y6yWgL35AhXJhHIEHWDTAY0Q2-cCegQIABAC&oq=ker&gs_lcp=ChJtb2JpbGUtZ3dzLXdpei1pbWcQARgAMgQIABBDMgQIABBDMgQIABBDMgQIABBDMgoIABCxAxCDARBDOgIIKToECAAQAzoICAAQsQMQgwE6CAgAEIAEELEDOgUIABCABDoHCAAQsQMQQzoLCAAQgAQQsQMQgwFQigtYhR5gnyhoAnAAeACAAWSIAYgDkgEDNC4xmAEAoAEBsAEDwAEB&sclient=mobile-gws-wiz-img&ei=JQb0YvWkJMmJytMP4KaH6Ag&bih=751&biw=412&client
Ossy Hyouka 3:27:48 PM
Yes, LOVE Spirited Away(and Kiki's Service). Chihiro from Spirited, shares the same English voice as Lilo from Lilo and Stich!
Esoterica (host) 3:28:15 PM
wow, ossy, i have never seen the kermode bear.
Esoterica (host) 3:29:18 PM
yes richard, i did see that story. she should have left the camp. must have been a rogue bear
Brian D 3:29:34 PM
Esoterica (host) 3:30:00 PM
oh yeah what a voice, what a vibe
Ossy Hyouka 3:30:31 PM
I read that story Richard, where the woman refused to stay indoors after being attacked by the grizzly, the 1st time. Man, sleeping in the wilderness is never a safe thing, with predators on the move, especially in the dead of night, where they can see 20x better in the night. Why would you go settle at the same place, where you had an encounter with a large deadly animal?
Esoterica (host) 3:31:19 PM
agree, os.
Ossy Hyouka 3:31:46 PM
Some black bears are brown, which are mistaken for real brown bears and grizzlies
Ossy Hyouka 3:33:34 PM
In regards of that grizzly story, some incident of a hiker was backed away by a mountain lion, before he scared her off, eventually https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.clickorlando.com/news/local/2020/10/13/video-of-mountain-lion-stalking-hiker-for-6-minutes-goes-viral/%3foutputType=amp

Esoterica (host) 3:49:50 PM

Esoterica (host) 3:52:01 PM
i will check it out, ossy, thanks! (something good)
Esoterica (host) 3:52:33 PM
i took my kids to see it, too, the johnny depp version. not as good as original imo
Brian D 3:55:57 PM
I couldn't watch it. They made Willy all wrong. Like a creepy cat in the hat or something. Gene made it his own. Loved the books as a kid. Read Charlie and... as well as The Great Glass Elevator so many times. I think I liked ... Elevator better
Esoterica (host) 3:57:52 PM
loved all the roald dahl books
Brian D 3:57:58 PM
That dog song would go well along with Nilsson Me and My Arrow
Wes Steenson 3:58:24 PM
@Selecta Jerry @Esoterica I miss Endless Boundaries. 🙁
Esoterica (host) 3:58:43 PM
agree, bri, i had an old copy of the arrow
Brian D 3:58:49 PM
I am eating peach at the moment from a local farm. Not the most giant one of the bunch but big enough

Brian D 4:03:23 PM
My friend that puts on the Tile Works concerts had Manoff as a vendor at one show. Good cider i hear. Adult kind
Wes Steenson 4:06:18 PM
Has anyone defined what exactly a Hoople is? Outside of the town that is the home of the University of Prof Peter Schickele, the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople.
Brian D 4:07:35 PM
Looking at cast of Silver Streak. Barely any left. Some of the actors were from 1910s. My grandparents age or older.
James Simmons 4:09:14 PM
Breaking the Waves is in my top ten movies. Emily Watson did not win the Oscar. The last scene in that movie just blew my mind and have never forgotten the impact it had on me.
Wes Steenson 4:13:16 PM
Taking this opportunity to re-recommend anything from the soundtrack of Julien Temple’s 1986 film Absolute Beginners, especially any of the David Bowie songs.
Brian D 4:13:50 PM
Morricone Youth is a great band name. As is Ciccone Youth. Wonder if they intended that as a nod to Sonic Youth as well as the obvious Morricone.
Wes Steenson 4:14:22 PM
Jon Solomon 4:15:59 PM
She lost to Frances McDormand for Fargo.
Esoterica (host) 4:16:16 PM

Jon Solomon 4:18:05 PM
She's 0-2 in that category. Lost two years later to Gwnyeth Paltrow for Shakespeare in Love.
Esoterica (host) 4:18:27 PM
David Shortell 4:18:29 PM
Gilbert Hernandez once said (by proxy through a character) that “Breaking the Waves” swiped its ending from his “Human Diastrophism”.
Esoterica (host) 4:18:36 PM
thx, jon
Esoterica (host) 4:19:06 PM
hi, david, hmm interesting
Wes Steenson 4:20:06 PM
That’s Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman (aka Flo and Eddie) of The Turtles (Happy Together, Eleanor) on backup vocals on T Rex’s Hot Love.
Wes Steenson 4:20:48 PM
Who could it be? Oh, I don’t know… SATAN??
Esoterica (host) 4:23:31 PM
Esoterica (host) 4:23:47 PM

Esoterica (host) 4:23:54 PM

David Shortell 4:24:55 PM
I primarily know Howard Kaylan as Captain Cloud of the Rainbow Telegraph (in "Get Crazy").
Brian D 4:30:56 PM
Heard some cool low rumbling sounds in the score of the film Hell or High Water. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis did the music. Worked great in desert chase scenes of the southwest
Brian D 4:34:28 PM
No don't see Burwell mentioned.
Esoterica (host) 4:34:38 PM
hmm my bad
Esoterica (host) 4:34:58 PM

Esoterica (host) 4:35:45 PM

Ossy Hyouka 4:37:20 PM
The jazzy song sounds like something of a 1960s - 80s anime of noir classy theme
Esoterica (host) 4:38:34 PM
great film, check out whiplash, os, i think you will like it (intense)
David Shortell 4:39:49 PM
I saw a documentary about Warren Ellis made in 2011, before the recent allegations about his sexual predation.
David Shortell 4:39:52 PM
Brian D 4:43:43 PM
That is a different Warren Ellis that you are referring to David.
Esoterica (host) 4:43:51 PM

Esoterica (host) 4:44:04 PM

Ossy Hyouka 4:44:37 PM
Wasn't much into Grease, but know the popularity musical feel and impact. I once saw my high school's play of Grease. I remember seeing Grease 2 on TV with Michelle Pfeiffer!
David Shortell 4:45:38 PM
Olivia died 3 days after another famous Australian singer, Judith Durham of the Seekers (“Georgy Girl”).
Esoterica (host) 4:45:56 PM

Ossy Hyouka 4:46:00 PM
I also faithfully see the Disney version of Grease, High School Musical 1 - 3!
Esoterica (host) 4:46:22 PM
aw, david. love georgy girl. i should play that.
Ossy Hyouka 4:50:39 PM
Some composer named Lamont Dozier, passed away this week. He penned hits for acts such as Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, and the Isley Brothers has died(copied this part from another radio site)
Jon Solomon 4:51:09 PM
There is a very weird moment in Thank God It's Friday where a person gets hit with a baguette and that moment has stayed with me ever since.
Brian D 4:51:21 PM
Holland, Dozier, Holland. Kings of Motown writers. Great team
Esoterica (host) 4:51:23 PM
