Synopsis

  • A woman who dates veterans from successively earlier wars.
  • A toast to war. Contempt for peace. Sounds of war.
  • A man talks about covering May Day peace demonstrations as a journalist. His photographer goes nuts when he sees feminist protesters. Getting trapped by cops, rescued by a woman in an apartment above. Sounds of protest.
  • Joe is picked up by a hippie wearing bells while hitchhiking across the country, argues with truck drivers, gets into a chase.
  • What is death; what if the expression "bought the farm" were literally true?
  • Annoyances: waiting in line at supermarkets and post offices, athletes today, teenage dance shows. "What's the point of freedom if you don't let it debase you?"
  • Reading positive, self-help style advice in a desperate shouting voice.
  • What if "gone fishing" were true?
  • Annoyances: messes in public bathrooms, litter in movies, pan-handlers.
  • Death as hotel paradise.
  • "Death is..."
