Anvils are great but without hammers what would you even use them for?
You ever realize how close “Anvil” is to “Arrival”? I only noticed now because I almost misspelled Anvil like three times while writing this description. In fact this sentence was the fourth, can you believe it? I can’t. But at least I know how to spell now. It’s Anvil, written by Bill Gallagher and released on November 16, 2009.
3:11: The iconic shot of Number 2 looking at the phone in question.
4:35: Interestingly if you google “Harry and Rupert Gregson-Williams” the first result is Rupert Gregson-Williams. At least it was for me anyway. Thanks Google.
6:38: This is the best version of the Prisoner 2009 opening sequence, so you can hear the title theme for yourself.
16:00: Have this article debating whether school uniforms are good or bad just because I thought it would be funny to put in this show-note.
16:35: I looked up the Chimes of Big Ben transcript here. I guess the line is “What has been created is an international community, a blueprint for world order.”
19:35: Honestly don’t know what happened here, can’t tell if Kiyan actually doubled his voice or if the recording skipped. Could be both.
20:45: Young man, there’s no need to feel down. Even though I know the world is falling apart you can pick yourself off the ground. Wait hang on that’s not right.
23:47: In My Mind… In MY MIND… you’re smart.
25:20: As promised, here’s the link to that behind the scenes video. Never say your old pal Dylan didn’t do anything for you.
40:59: Here are the lyrics to Heroes and Villains for you to analyze along with at home! Here’s the livejournal post on the whole Beach Boys connection again.
43:15: Nick Kent writes about Brian Wilson’s attempts to replicate auditory hallucinations in his book: The Dark Stuff: Selected Writings on Rock Music.
44:07: Pop Apostle has a picture of Pet Sounds on Michael’s table in his New York apartment.
47:51: According to Wikipedia, the length of Heroes and Villains is 4:53 on Brian Wilson Presents Smile and 3:37 on Smiley Smile. I was unable to verify which version was used in this episode.
59:48: Snopes pretty vehemently denies that Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds is about LSD and they ahve some powerful sources so I guess I’m inclined to believe them.
1:04:20: I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.
