Jimmy Stewart hugs Dennis Larson and Kibry Furlong in The Jimmy Stewart Show (1971-72)

Warner Archive has been posting these stills from the Jimmy Stewart show and I feel like this one perfectly captures what I think the show must be like. Jimmy looks only half-convinced that any of this is a good idea, with tears welling up in his eyes as he reflects on the golden years. Meanwhile, these poor kids whose parents signed them up for their acting debuts in this dumb show are alternately nervous and terrified by this grandpa who’s hugging too hard, desperately trying to connect.
Jimmy, I’m never going to watch your show but I think I already know you were too good for it.

There were some serious discussions about this at the museum today. Discussions about the unfortunate absence of nipples on this mannequin. We’re here to represent history ACCURATELY, DAMN IT!

Thrift store vinyl score of the year: Emitt Rhodes’ self-titled 1970 album. My local Goodwill just rearranged their record section so that it’s all on top of a folding card table, and I’m kinda worried that they’re planning on doing away with it. In any case, I was flipping through on Monday and saw this album, thought to myself “Hey - that’s the guy who did a song that’s on the Royal Tennenbaums soundtrack. Meh - for a dollar it’s worth a try.”

Sooooo good. The first listen was a revelation. This sounds like a lost Beatles album. Or at least a lost album of Paul McCartney’s contributions to a Beatles album. The similarity is really striking in some songs, including this one. Overall though, it’s a really well-rounded pop album with some interesting instrumentation, mature vocals, and above-average lyrics. The listening experience was a lot like my revelatory first listen to the new New Pornographers album last month, where I thought every song was better than the last - it’s something I haven’t really felt about an album since… Fleet Foxes? Vampire Weekend? Sufjan?

Highly recommended - especially if you can find it for a dollar.
