the music, scenery and the unorthodox fishing situations John Lurie puts
himself and his guests into, it's just non-stop entertainment. My favorite
episode has him and Jim Jarmusch trying to fish for shark with a piece of
cheese and a handgun, though the ice-fishing episode with Willem Dafoe may
define my next few months.
Did I mention the music? It's Lurie, goofy as always. The damn title track
is as simple and catatonically catchy as is possible.
out on the water,
