Who knows if it has anything to do with anything but - here's the lyrics to the theme song:


Johnny Appleseed by Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros

Lord, there goes Johnny Appleseed
He might pass by in the hour of need
There's a lot of souls
Ain't drinking from no well locked in a factory

Hey - look there goes
Hey - look there goes
If you're after getting the honey - hey
Then you don't go killing all the bees

Lord, there goes Martin Luther King
Notice how the door closes when the chimes of freedom ring
I hear what you're saying, I hear what he's saying
*Is what was true now no longer so

Hey - I hear what you're saying
Hey - I hear what he's saying
If you're after getting the honey - hey
Then you don't go killing all the bees

What the people are saying
And we know every road - go, go
What the people are saying
There ain't no berries on the trees

Let the summertime sun
Fall on the apple - fall on the apple

Lord, there goes a Buick forty-nine
Black sheep of the angels riding, riding down the line
We think there is a soul, we don't know
That soul is hard to find

Hey - down along the road
Hey - down along the road
If you're after getting the honey
Then you don't go killing all the bees

Hey - it's what the people are saying
It's what the people are saying
Hey - there ain't no berries on the trees
Hey - that's what the people are saying, no berries on the trees
You're checking out the honey, baby
You had to go killin' all the bees

Also, a transcript of John's monologue from the BBQ (from hbo.com):


"If my words are yours, can you hear my Father? Can Bill know my Father, keeping his eye on me? Can I bone Kai and Butchie know my Father instead?

"My Father's shy doing his business. Kai helps my Father dump out. Bill takes a shot. Shaunie is much improved.

"Joe is a Doubting Thomas. Joe will save Not-Aleman. Joe will bring his buddies home. This is how Freddy relaxes. Cup-o'joe, and Winchell's variety dozen.

"Mitch catches a good wave. Mitch wipes out. Mitch wipes out Cissy. Cissy shows Butchie how to do that. Cissy wipes Butchie out. Butchie hurts Barry's head. Mister Rollins comes in Barry's face. My Father runs the Mega-Millions.

"Fur is big. Mud is big. The stick is big. The word is big. Fire is huge. The wheel is huge. The line and circle are big. On the wall, the line and circle are huge. On the wall, the man at the wall makes a man from the circle and line. The man at the wall makes a Word on the wall from the circle and line. The Word on the wall hears my Father.

"The zeroes and ones make the Word in Cass's camera. In the Word on the wall that hears my-Father-in-Cass's-camera, the good one Mitch catches doesn't wipe Cissy out. In the-Word-that-hears-my-Father, Cissy shows Butchie something else. In-my-Father's-Word, Cissy shows Butchie in Shaun. In-my-Father's-Word, Tina raises Shaun at lunch. In Cass's-camera, Butchie lays the court out for Barry, and Mister Rollins watches, and he doesn't come on Barry's face. In Cass's-camera, Butchie knows Kai kept the faith. In-my-Father's-Word, the Wave lifts them up.

"In Cass's camera, Bill doesn't bump his head on the stairs. In Cass's-camera, as long as he's being stupid, Bill gives Lois a kiss.

"In His-Word-in-Cass's-camera, the Internet is big. Nine-Eleven is big, but not every towel-head is eradicated. In His-Word, We are coming Nine-Eleven-Fourteen.

"In my-Father's-Word, Bill sees how Freddy relaxes. In Cass's-camera, Ramon wants to know who's hungry, in the courtyard and Room Forty-Five.

"In my-Father's-Word-to-come-in-Cass's-camera, Doctor Smith calls Ocean Properties. In Cass's-camera-to-come, my Father stares Not Aleman down, and Freddy sees Bill much-improved.

"You will not note my-Father's-Word, nor remember Cass's-camera, but you will not forget what we did here."

WTF just happened in that last episode....

I mean....I watched it but I am still scratching my head.

Hey...at least the promo for next week says, "All will be revealed"

Does anyone really believe that though?

gotta go dump out now...

I've just started watching this and am completely enthralled. It's Lynchian madness, weird magical realism and Milch's bizarre dialog experiments wrapped up in a big mysterious ball. At the same time, it completely captures the uber-laid-back mentality of surfing communities. Kudos espeically to Brian Van Holt as Butchie -- I've absolutely HATED this guy in the past, particularly his turn as the twin villains in the awful HOUSE OF WAX remake, but it just goes to show that with the right material an actor can shine.

Anyway, I'm three episodes in and am just devouring it. Hope it gets a second season.

I adore JfC.... and NME, I said the EXACT same thing after last episode. Laughing I've never been so confused and yet interested in something at the same time.

MM... you just totally blew my mind with that bit about Butchie (I adore the character Wub) being the twins in the new House of Wax. SO didn't know that! Wierd.

I'm so stoked for the finale.... but there's no WAY everything will be revealed. I don't think it's possible, given how many questions there are and the laws of physics. Laughing

If they answer just 1/3 of the questions I have, I'll be happy. Hmmm

Welcome to the party, MM!

After the first episode I raced to IMDB to see where I recognized Butchie from. And that next night UC & I watched HofW again. It was just amazing to see Brian's progression.

Can I just say Ed O'Neill constantly brings his A-game to everything he does?

This is his best role in eons.

Incidentally, the show has now officially not been renewed for a second season.

Wow, that's a kick in the knee, haha.

I could barely sit through the pilot, I just dont have the time or patience to hope a show gets better these days.

I didn't mind the show, but I honestly hope that this ultimately results in Milch finally doing those cocksuckin' DEADWOOD wrap-up movies.
