The Midnight Citizen 54 — “Story of a 3 Hour Pass”

1:32:01 — Night radio…in the day! Stopping by a park bench on my way home from the paper route, finishing a cigar, and thinking about the future of — what else? — the Downtown Drive-In. Then, onto the other job — at the zip line — working from my tree house office on a three hour pass through tour with guests coming and going. Hang out with me and the birds and talk about some pop culture on the back half of this very long and experimental episode.

  1. I hope you took a raincheck on the Sunday night HBO and got some sleep. Wow, what a day! I was exhausted after listening during my two hour commute to Chiba on the trains this morning.

    I love your Downtown Drive-In idea. I get that you’re transmitting the audio over some type of low-power fm system – brilliant. I do wonder what you’re using to project the the film/video on the wall. You must have a pretty bright bulb for that.

    I’m with you on not showing films requiring a licensing fee. A thought occurred to me while listening that such a system could be used for showcasing work by local artists. Maybe a film-festival or some other type of event could be a way to garner additional grass-root support.

    I’d like to get in touch to discuss the technical and logistical steps of what you’re doing. It seems like you’ve come up with an awesome DIY mobile event system. Seems to me that such Downtown Drive-In models could be of great benefit in the days ahead.

    One more thing: I’m not to big on Time Travel movies. They always leave me scratching my head. But as you brought up the genre, I wonder if you have any thoughts on La Jetée? I’ve not seen it – only read the wikipage. But a friend has recently recommended it as one of the better films dealing with time travel.
