An excerpt from the Wynonna episode, as a taste: 
“After pulling into the parking lot at the venue in Oakland, Naomi leans out her window, flashes a smile at the parking attendant and asks if it would be alright for her to park back by the busses. Oh, by the way, even though Naomi is living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to make ends meet, she drives a red ’57 Chevy with a personalized license plate that says RED HOT and she’d just put a set of whitewall tires on the thing. That’s the reason she gives the attendant for wanting to park by the busses instead of out in that crazy public parking lot. It works. 
And, wouldn’t you know it, Naomi and her daughter happen to be right there, dressed like movie stars from the 1940s, when Merle Haggard gets off the bus to walk his little dog, Tuffy. After speaking with them for a little while, Merle invites them onto the bus. 
This isn’t Naomi’s first brush with a famous musician. Back in Kentucky, she and her sister had met The Band one night. Levon Helm even took a liking to her, though Naomi insists she didn’t go back to his hotel room and that Levon was pretty upset about it. 
Here in Oakland, Merle suggests they watch the concert from the side of the stage instead of sitting out front. This is where Naomi’s version of the story ends.”

He’s created an incredibly worthy podcast. I go at it slowly, whilst driving or gardening. Fascinating, and based on his pedigree I tend to trust him. He has some interesting introductory things that do/don’t have anything to do with the meat of the podcast. But I very much believe that he’s at least reaseaching the hell out of these musicians. 

All of season two is about George Jones, which includes Tammy Wynette (fascinating story). I wasn’t that familiar with him, but now I think I have a pretty good grasp of his more important tunes and his career. (Fascinating story)
And most recently he explains the history of Nudie Suits, which I had no idea about. Fascinating story.

If you’re not already listening to the Cocaine & Rhinestones podcast (written/hosted by David Allan Coe’s son) then you should - especially, now, this episode about Wynonna that primary talks about Naomi. Fascinating, well-researched, enlightening stuff.

So much about this. His character had just watched the moon landing, then died, and then this unexpected appearance of his ghost: the song begins talking about the moon.

Then, as the head of an ad agency, he tells the Hamm character that he's wasting his life - the best things in life are free. And Don Draper (Hamm) has so much contempt for everyone...except this guy.

Brilliant, subtle writing.And a fine send off for a beloved weirdo.


One of the few series I can watch over and over again.  Burt Cooper was an amazing character (among several).

Well, I MIGHT have had a slight interest in seeing that docu, until I watched the “joke.” Not so much now. {#Rolleyes}

Yes. Yes it is.


But that's what's important to grasp about that whole situation. Gottfried, in his own words even, "lost an audience bigger than anyone has ever lost an audience" with the 9/11 joke. And THAT is how he responded to losing the audience. I can't even imagine the mind that connects the dots in that way.

Seems like some, but not all, of the laughter is nervous/embarrassed/shock.
