The 90's, episode 213: FUN AND GAMES
0:08 Kit Sibert commentary by Nancy Cain. Sibert, a social worker, has this to say about personal fulfillment. Everybody has a sense of humor, but it's infinitely varied and what you do for fun is infinitely varied. What's the common denominator? It has something to do with what's liberated inside. 6:13 Mountain Biker by Nancy Cain. On Piuma Road in Malibu, California, Greg Hodal pedals uphill. I'm just trying to do as well as I can each time and go as fast I can. 6:53 Fiesta de San Fermin by Esti Galili Marpet. In July, 1990, at Fiesta de San Fermin in Pamplona, Spain we share the excitement surrounding the annual Running of the Bulls. There is singing and dancing in the streets and we end with a bullfight. 10:30 More from Kit Sibert. Sibert says that movement and exercise are fundamental to letting go of anger (which is the first step to having fun). 11:43 Midnight Basketball League by Pat Creadon. At the Henry Horner Homes in Chicago's West Side, African American youths play basketball every Tuesday and Thursday at midnight. Vincent Lane, Director of the Chicago Housing Authority, explains that this activity is successful because the kids are in the gym and off the streets. 19:13 Electronic Cafe by Wendy Appel and Alan Barker. In Santa Monica, California, Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz have developed a model for a community level teleconferencing center, using inexpensive videophone technology. It's an immediate and informal method for people around the world to learn about each other's culture. They connect with people from Nicaragua and Russia. These electronic meetings are bringing as much excitement today as the black and white Sony Portapak brought to independent television in the late '60s. 25:07 Busia and Cioc by Valjean McLenighan. A clip from a video shot in 1970 with a black and white Portapack. An 80-year-old Polish immigrant shares her disappointment with America: I was a slave in Poland and I heard America was a free country. I worked terrible hard here for nothing and was treated like dirt. 25:40 More from Kit Sibert. Kit Sibert talks about how she personally has fun. When I'm with somebody and laughing, I'm having fun. But I resist having fun. I love going to the beach and body surfing but I never want to go. And yet when I get there and start doing it it's always fun. 28:02 Maxwell Street Market by Joe Angio. A short portrait of the Chicago institution on a Sunday in June 1990. 28:38 Mountain Biker by Nancy Cain. Greg Hodal is riding his bike and huffing and puffing: This is exciting time - under sixteen minutes to Twin Poles. 29:02 Mountain Man by Phil Morton. Paul Boruff denies that he 's a real Mountain Man. There are very few people who honestly deserve the title of 'Mountain Man.' Boruff claims he's just a performer, then demonstrates loading gun powder in his gun, and sings I Call The Wind Mariah. 32:01 Baseball City by Nancy Cain. In Agoura Hills, California, Jody Procter practices in a batting cage and talks about the American obsession with baseball. Baseball is a secular religion. Three million people a year go to see the Dodgers play at Dodger Stadium. I like the whole thing about baseball. It locks me up to a thing that goes deep in my life. It summarizes everything I feel about security. 44:14 American children play soccer, while their parents encourage them from offscreen. 44:32 Bill Wade, an ex-NFL quarterback, comments on how soccer will overtake other sports in terms of popularity. He thinks that it is dangerous that soccer will overtake American football: ...football is important to [the USA]...way beyond what most people think. 45:03 Boomerang by Eddie Becker. Becker runs in to a man tossing around a boomerang in a park in Washington, D.C. 47:54 More from Kit Silbert. Kit Silbert offers more advice about fun: To lie on the couch and read is relaxing, but it's not fun. It's a cerebral experience. Fun has to be sensual. 48:34 The King and Di by Judith Binder. A woman ordered a sex toy on a lark and talks about her experience with this sex substitute. It's the secret to abstinence and total happiness. The only problem is that it could become addiction and the sad part is that you can't hug anybody afterwards and you can't give love. 56:17 Mountain Biker (under credits). Our biker coasts downhill and talks to his bike, Well you won the race, eh big boy? Also with audio of Joe Cummings reading letters to The 90's.
