So, the stars and planets were aligned in a once in a lifetime way, and the cast and crew of Countless Screaming Argonauts, the Podcast of Record, found themselves together. In a hotel. In Binghamton. With a live audience. Give those guys that with a few beers and anchovy pizza for fuel (spiedie actually) and you know where they go? On a three part LIVE bender. Topic: The Future. Results: Lots of laughs, beers arguments and the like. Bring up social media, the IPad, relatives sex lives, and this is where the fight started. No really, this is where a fair, even handed exchange of ideas was. No really, this is a CSA podcast – this is where the mass confusion, heavy drinking and yelling started. Yea, that’s more like it.
So if you like Maqz, the fabulous Penguin, College Boy, Denali, Manhattan Man, Joshua, Mark Twain or even unruly Jerry Springer-like live audiences, then this is the place for you. We do it in three parts, each about 30 minutes long. This is part one, after just a few beers and Guinness, and Cream-sicles (vanilla vodka and orange soda).
BTW the opening and closing music bumpers for this episode are from the Billy Joel song “Miami 2017”. This was chosen as a reminder that once again CSA couldn’t get things straight – during one of the many criticisms and arguments this song was referenced several times by wrong titles although we were able to get some of the lyrics correct…
Miami 2017 (Seen The Lights Go Out On Broadway)I've seen the lights go out on Broadway-
I saw the Empire State laid low.
And life went on beyond the Palisades,
They all bought Cadillacs-
And left there long ago.
We held a concert out in Brooklyn-
To watch the Island bridges blow.
They turned our power down,
And drove us underground-
But we went right on with the show...
I've seen the lights go out on Broadway-
I saw the ruins at my feet,
You know we almost didn't notice it-
We'd see it all the time on Forty-Second Street.
They burned the churches up in Harlem-
Like in that Spanish Civil War-
The flames were everywhere,
But no one really cared-
It always burned up there before...
I've seen the lights go down on Broadway-
I watched the mighty skyline fall.
The boats were waiting at the Battery,
The union went on strike-
They never sailed at all.
They sent a carrier out from Norfolk-
And picked the Yankees up for free.
They said that Queens could stay,
They blew the Bronx away-
And sank Manhattan out at sea....
You know those lights were bright on Broadway-
But that was so many years ago...
Before we all lived here in Florida-
Before the Mafia took over Mexico.
There are not many who remember-
They say a handful still survive...
To tell the world about...
The way the lights went out,
And keep the memory alive....
