Cass Elliot: We used to have duck-and-blanket drills at school, where they’d ring a bell all day, sometimes five or six times a day, and we’d crawl under our desks and put our hands like that to protect the back of the neck from the bomb.


Nick Zed 🙁laugh) It really has nothing to do with waveless cinema. It’s not original.


Elliot: It didn’t work. What value can it have?


Zedd: But sometimes things that are buried and ignored and marginalized by one generation are then revered in the future when people look back to see what had some purity.


Elliot: Apparently a temple has been spotted protruding two feet above the surface of the sea in very well-navigated waters near Bimini off the coast of Florida. And this is supposedly Atlantis.

Zedd: The last time I heard of him, he called me from a motel somewhere drunk to the hilt claiming he was going to lead a paramilitary operation in Central America to save souls.


Elliot: I think he could change a lot of people’s minds.


Zedd: He would make all the noise and wake me up. He robbed everyone.


Elliot: He may even have been a bad person, or a rapist, or a walking hallucinogen, or whatever. But he didn’t have to die.


Zedd: God is not a necessary concept.

Zedd: I guess there were some things we had in common: we were all the same age and lived in the same neighborhood.


Elliot: You know, I sang on their record.


Zedd: They stopped arbitrarily in 1987.


Elliot: It’s in my contract.
