About this Episode

On a particularly coastal episode, Joe and Scott survey the "sun-struck L.A. optimism of 'Change of the Guard'" and end up agreeing with (later) Donald Fagen that it "approaches a level of filler," though Skunk delivers another killer guitar solo. The boys swing east to grab a bite at Bob Giraldi's stylish and entertaining Dinner Rush (2000) before going back to Cali for a tour of the counterculture and the desert in Michaelangelo Antonioni's divisive Zabriskie Point (1970). Scott hits the flyover states to recommend rock out of Austin and jazz out of Chicago; while Joe goes global with a film out of Brazil, as well as a post-punk record and a modern Gothic horror novel out of England. We're willing to die too, but not of boredom.
