Episode 656 – Dr. Darrell Hamamoto

Friday December 9th 2016

In this edition we welcome Dr. Darrell Hamamoto back onto the Bridge for insight into Bob Dylan’s non-interest in receiving his Nobel Peace Prize, nor the public’s opinion of the matter; and the true meaning behind Madd Magazine, Bent, and Cracked Comics.

    JB, thanks for bringing Dr. Hamamoto back on board. A genteel conversation – reminiscent, interesting and somewhat fluffy in an Americana sort of way.

    He did a video with Leuren Moret covering their investigation of their University/College and the threat it presented to them. Very interesting as opposed to his side interest of developing and marketing “American Asian yellow porn”. Yawn, ho hum. Do we really need anymore porn??? Earthy naughtiness and titillation is one thing, gross mechanics in meaningless settings and story lines are another.

    I would have preferred an interview Jan Irving of Gnostic Media, whom I recommended as a guest still thinking these two were still “friends” or at least striving for clarity of the MK Ultra projects and Kinsey’s sexual studies funded by our government and his subsequent endeavors of mapping people, positions in government, companies/corporations, etc.

    Bob Dillon is not all that. He had a few good songs, but nothing that equates to nobel prize.

    Hey John,you might want to have Dr. Hammamoto came back on to discuss this-

    Are you kidding me? You could spend 3 hrs talking about what I found on this website.
    Did he show this film to his students in class? Just asking?

    I don’t know if you want to post this comment, and if you don’t, I understand. But when I found that info I had to share it with you. You might already be aware of this, as I am a new listener to your show.

    Also, I want to thank you for introducing me to the Thievery Corporation a few episodes back. Lebanese Blond was the song. I now own all of their music. Their best hits album, and Saudade, are my two favorites. Very addicting music.

    Hey if you ever get a chance put on Little Dragon, The album Nabuma Rubberband. Check out the song, Cat Rider. All the songs are good. God Bless John, love the shows.

    I also saw the interview were Dylan said he made a deal with someone who is not of this world.. Love his music but we cannot honor someone who appears to have sold his soul to the Devi.

    What a great guest, I loved the interview! I look forward to the next one.

    Dr. Darrell, what a wonderful guest. I love his optimism and outlook. Its refreshing to hear people like this, especially in these times when so many people appear to want to focus on only the negative.

    Best background yet, just move the Caravan symbol to the upper right corner and its perfect John B.

    In my best Gilda Radner Roseanna Roseannadana voice:
    What’s all this talk about “fake canoes?”
    . . . Oh, nevermind.

    Love it when you two talk!
    Your best and most potent years are just ahead!

    Isis is one of my favorite Bob tunes. Nice interview john.

    Dylan!! So many artists have ‘testified’ that they don’t know where their music comes from ~ they don’t (always) claim to be the creators or the originators ~ they are vessels or receptacles. I propose that the creator of music is other-worldly. Bizarre and inexplicable! Music transcends, brothers and sisters … and so we should listen … and listen carefully!! And enjoy the time we have here 🙂

    DR. I’ve got my B.S. in Psych, masters in Business, you make me want too go grab my PHD in SOCIOLOGY!

    Tis’ the season, SUICIDE is for the most SELFISH LOSERS ON EARTH! No ONE on earth who truly cares about their LOVED ones will ever, end it…its all GODS timing….my father once told me, that the most selfish act one can do is suicide….this coming from a man who won it all and lost it all,,,monetarily many times….MERRY CHRIST-MASS@

    • Penny December 14, 2016 at 9:50 am #

      That would be “Mary Christ Mass” to be accurate! To call someone that is suicidal a selfish loser is not helpful. Just may reinforce the reason they are suicidal! We have all had highs and lows in life and on a long enough timeline you can look back to find what you once thought was certain disaster to merely be a bump in the road. Periods of adversity are about growing as a human being and changing what you can control, attitude and gratitude, and finding what your true path is. In times of profound loss and sadness I have found that by helping others I have helped myself. God really can forgive anything and everything and give you peace and joy.

    Love the mind of DR. Hamamoto!

    not son, song…HURRICANE>

  16. mary December 10, 2016 at 6:15 pm #

    Hey JB, Hacksaw Ridge, a great Christian and War movie, low budget, but great. Love the commentary tonight, the lips are looking good and definition. Quit that smoking shit. OK? As a Christmas gift too us…..hey…GO DONALD T…THE DON!

    I so much appreciate a conversation between Mr. Wells and another intelligent articulate thoughtful person. It helps that I am of the same age as these two. I was not into ZAP comics, however MAD Magazine was something I purchased the minute it hit the shelves at the local bookstand or drug store. I checked Amazon and eBay, and that boxed edition of ZAP referred to is selling for $500. I was so conservative and introverted in the late 60’s that I didn’t experience the Beatles to the extent my peers did in high school.

    Bob Dylan admitted he gave his soul to the devil for fame. I saw the interview, and personally I don’t listen to his music anymore.

    • eldongenevieve December 12, 2016 at 9:49 pm #

      You stole my thunder I watched that and don’t listen to him anymore.

  19. Samuel December 10, 2016 at 11:59 am #

    I feel the chemistry the two of you guys have is amazing…. I feel hope when I listen to the esteemed educator Darrel Yamamoto. I grew up with you guys ,and now I see that my life experience , growing up in middle america , is a work of art in itself…..We are truly blessed. This is why everyone wants it and wants to destroy it at the same time… we are doing our jobs too well it seems… love to see u guys do a roundtable together sometime. … Definately more inspiring stuff on CTM….. forget the old University , start a new one…

    • dyhamamoto December 11, 2016 at 1:53 pm #

      Thanks for your kind words, Samuel. Together–armed with music, movies, and books–we will help the USA rebuild civil society from our love of humanity and the creative people that have inspired us the make it happen. To reference a famed lyrical poet, we are “Bringing It All Back Home.”

    loved Dylan from day one

    SS95 is one big rabbit hole. when you read these articles with wonky syntax & misspellings, you can betchur boots it was written by a bot. FAKE. remember the ice agent suicide in NYC as reported by SS95?

    if you look up SS95 on both ICANN & the FCC you are led to a religious organization & a dead end.

    This was a great interview, one of the best I’ve heard anywhere in a long time. It’s a nice break from the typical current affairs we need to keep up on.

  23. eldongenevieve December 10, 2016 at 1:33 am #

    GREAT SHOW JOHN, This country needs more teachers like DR.Darrell and President Trump needs all our prayers and support the evil against him seems to be growing everyday we still have a long way to go to get out of the woods. GODSPEED

  24. Donna December 9, 2016 at 11:54 pm #

    This was an interesting strategy and approach to the N.W.O issues that have been discussed all week. I appreciate his clarity and his courage to be non-conforming. The message he left is step outside the game. To you and yours, Mr. Wells, have a nice weekend.
