    Inustrial and noise music, as you've gathered, has long roots, as do house/techno/trance music(s) (and such similar approaches as acid jazz), that other agglomeration of trends to have expressed itself since the flowering of rap/hiphop in the '70s...and don't forget Gil Scott-Heron, and the Last Poets, dropping serious rhyme in time (I'll stop immediately) in the latter '60s, despite some folks' seemingly wanting rap to begin with Grandmaster Flash and all, as if Jamaican dancehall toasters and the talking blues never existed.


    ---Charlton Heston actually might've looked a bit like El Cid, for all we know...slightly more ridiculous (by Orson Welles's intent), aside from Moses, was his assaying the role of a Mexican border cop in TOUCH OF EVIL, which I think you might've been trying to land on...


    ---Andy Rooney was, after some good reporting from places like VietNam in the '60s, on the satire/documentary series THE GREAT AMERICAN DREAM MACHINE on PBS, along with Marshall EFron and Albert Brooks and Chevy Chase and all, so before he began yelling at the youngsters like Morley Safer to get off his lawn, he amassed some cred (stopping again).


    ---typo alert: Freddie Prinze. Even better than BUFFALO BILL, as good as that was, was the next attempt, THE "SLAP" MAXWELL STORY...though things took a turn for the worse in terms of sitcoms for Coleman after that.


    ---the Wobbly (IWW) website fudges a bit...the Socialist Labor Party most emphatically did not join with the Social-Democratic Party to form the Socialist Party of the US, but instead those folks who wanted to work with existing labor unions left the SLP to join the newly building Socialist Party. Factionalism in the left...imagine.


    ---as an old fan of Bad Religion (who definitely have better and worse albums), I finally for once decided to get into a pit at a DC show of theirs (my ex Donna loved to do so when the mood struck her). Like yourself, Jackie, I'm about the same age as the band's members, making me (even then, more than fifteen years ago) verging on twice the age of most of the pit members...and I spent most of my time in the pit being big and old and picking up the kids the pit had let fall to the floor when they stage-dived, inspiring somewhat concerned expressions of Bad Religion's members. Suburban Dad-ism will out.
