Fresh Horses by Garth Brooks.
In what way can horses be “fresh”? Is Garth riding with all his freshest of horses? Do horses have placentas? Nathan and Cameron seek answers for all these questions—and more—on another action-packed episode of Think Outside the Box Set!
This week’s album, “Fresh Horses” by Garth Brooks, is sort of a letdown, with few memorable songs. But that’s OK, because at least he induces one emotion in us: ennui.
- The movie Fresh Horses starring Molly Ringwald
- The album cover of “Fresh Horses”
- (It’s a) Departure, off the album Putting the Days to Bed
- The Oklahoma city bombing
- “A relationship is like a shark” quote from Annie Hall
- An article about the origin of the phrases “balls to the wall” and “balls out”
- Cult of domesticity, AKA cult of true womanhood
- “I am large—I contain multitudes” (a quote from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself”)
- The hurdy-gurdy, “the 14th century version of the keytar”—which fails to be uilleann pipes
- Steve Buscemi’s volunteer firefighting after 9/11
We end this episode with a tune called “Hangman’s Reel” from Cameron’s other podcast, Get Up in the Cool. It features Hunter Walker on lap dulcimer, Brian Bell on guitar—and Cameron on banjo. Check it out here!
