The Explanation
(for those who require one)

And, of course, that is what all of this is -- all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs -- that song, endlesly reincarnated -- born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 -- same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."
-- Nick Tosches, Where Dead Voices Gather

Eddie Albert in the broadcast studio for CBS. No idea what he's saying though.

He's probably not trying to kill Paul Crewe

He is saying, quote: " Lisa! Send Ebb in here, NOW! He must have eaten more of your hot cakes, the toilet's all clogged up!"

It's a promo for time shares in a jerkwater place called Green Acres. Go figure.

Haha the TV network's just started replaying Green Acres... Apparently it was a radio show before it became the TV show. Annoying as hell, but he looks rather dapper here :-)
