SHOW NOTES: S01E07, "Brotherhood"
"While we wouldn't suggest spending an entire weekend at the Two Bunch Palms hotel (unless you’re in the mood for something a bit more quaint and off the beaten path), the on-site hot springs justify the 30 minute drive. Here, the mineral healing waters are pumped into a picturesque grotto which is made up of two pools, one at 99 degrees and the other at 104 (those extra 5 degrees make a huge difference, actually). There’s also a respectable spa menu—some of the services are performed in individual gazebos—and a simple but good restaurant."
(Honestly, this sounds and looks pretty great to us—and who complains about a thirty-minute drive in LA? Get it together, Goop.)
Jenna brings up David Holzman's Diary, a mockumentary directed by Jim McBride in 1967 that has become something of a cult classic. The entire budget for this movie was $2500, and you can watch the whole thing on YouTube. Here's the movie poster, which you can purchase from Walmart, bizarrely.
Jenna also mentions the article she was working on about bisexual representation in media. It has since been published by Rolling Stone, and you can check it out here! While you're at it, you might as well combat bi erasure some more by watching our favorite bisexual anthem, "Gettin' Bi" from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, sung by the great and good Darryl Whitefeather (Pete Gardner).
Want to be a disaffected teen like Claire? You can purchase your very own copy of Carlos Castaneda's The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way to Knowledge. It was first published in 1968, and it's still in print, though with a significantly more psychedelic cover. (That raven is very thematic for Six Feet Under!)
And finally, here's the promised picture of Claire's math teacher writing BANANAS things on the board. If you can make sense of this under all the scribbles and angry shapes, we salute you.
