    I'm not a Harley guy, but the bike he rode to that farewell should be in my garage.

    I always liked that bike.  My wife however doesn't not like the way people drive around bikes so...
  • Gubbo: Was it me, or did it change after Radar left.

    i think they cut off an opening shot of Radar from the opening credits, and it misses a note or two at the very beginning? Or was I going mad on my watch through when I was locked down and going mad with nothing else to do


    It updated as the series went on.
    It was downright disco-y by the end with lots of high-hat crashes and drums
  • Also, this IS sad news, but let me know when something happens to Loudon Wainwright III

    Captain Spaulding disappeared right after the nurses returned!!

    It's you they only take him out. If you also look at the intro they made subtle changes when BJ took over for Trapper, but the song is intact. Someone actually compiled all the openings the show had:

    RIP Howie Mandel


    Don't you think it's kinda low comparing a successful dead guy to a live, no talent hack?

    Now, I have to look into this, since my wife recently bought the whole series on disc.

    You can take any random one from the first series with any random one from the final series.


    Found the complete set on YouTube posted above. They even have After MASH
  • The song is from the movie (1970), Subby. It was subsequently adapted to the series.
  • jake_lex: Stratohead: Mad Scientist: Hope he didn't commit painless suicide.

    Mandel wrote the music Michael Altman wrote the lyrics.

    Robert Altman had his then 14 year old son Michael write the lyrics, because he wanted them to sound like the kind of goofy, maudlin thing a teenager would write.

    As it turns out, Michael made far more off MASH than Robert did.  Robert got a flat fee ($50K, I think) for directing the movie.  Michael still gets royalties any time an episode of the TV show airs somewhere.


    Robert didn't get any future royalties? I thought he knew what he was doing?
  • Hawk24: bobug: Hawk24: [Youtube-video https://www.youtube.com/embed/FgcGOWaT​PdU]

    The song - with lyrics - always gets me. Growing up, I started on the TV show. Didn't see the movie until I was in my later teens - my dad didn't get it on VHS until then :) (early 90s) But I got that movie, SOB and a few other classics on DVD as soon as possible.

    I agree...the movie version is hauntingly beautiful. I love the harmonies and chord modulations. The TV version is a little too clean and "peppy."


    Well the TV is different than the movie, but they also added the chopped sounds so you can believe how real this was.

    Never say that the internet hasn't been a force for good :)
  • catmandu: I win pretty much any game of Six Degrees where we count the steps to people in Hollywood. A college friend went to school with Gary Burghoff so he is 2 steps. So many people were in either the MASH movie or TV show with him that I can usually match with 1-2 more steps.


    And don't forget his son ruined Game of Thrones and other movies.
  • grimlock1972: Stratohead: Mad Scientist: Hope he didn't commit painless suicide.

    Mandel wrote the music Michael Altman wrote the lyrics.

    yup and Michael's dad Robert Altman directed the movie, made about $70,000 for doing so. Michael made $1,000,000 for the lyrics.


    And counting... why did the dad have the same agent as his kid?

    My Google-fu has been honed through years of training to take on Skynet!

    All in the Family
    MASH

    Never had to get up and change the channel.


    It's kind of weird how CBS use to be the cutting edge network, now it's the safe network your grandma can love.
  • ***punches time in card***

    One of these days I'm going to miss one of these threads, maybe I already have?  Who knows.

    Also upthread someone brought up Captain Spalding, who I forget about basically 20 minutes after an episode where he appears because even as a kid I would always ask "What is this guy doing, and why?"

    He was standing on his head until the nurses came back

    ...and Oh Tokyo, they got some saki, and sashimi, and some clean sheets, oh, kimono, oh, kimono!!!

    The only one of those shows I usually went and did other things during was Bob Newhart in 1973. I *never* missed Carol Burnett, that cast was absolutely amazing even to 12yr old me (and yes, I cried during the closing segment of her final episode).

    Oh almost undoubtedly.  But I've been most SamFlaggs on the internet for 20-25+ years so what is a guy to do.
  • Let us not forget, in this time of remembrance, his contributions to the '80s band Big Fun.
  • Well, the good news is that Elliot Gould and Donald Sutherland are still very much alive.

    Anyway, RIP extremely talented music guy

  • as iconic of a song as that was, it blew me away when I learned the lyrics. Not, Kurt Cobain blown away, but still surprising.

    Old Harleys, before they became obnoxious cruisers, are super cool.
