15. Daylight Saving Time, The Three Stooges, Antoni Gaudi

We add Daylight Saving Time, The Three Stooges, and architect Antoni Gaudi to the List of Every Damn Thing.

Phil and Jake further sculpt the List of Every Damn Thing by ranking Daylight Saving Time, The Three Stooges, and the turn-of-the-century Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi.

If you have something to add to the List of Every Damn Thing, let us know by sending an email to list@everydamnthing.net

SHOW NOTES:
  • In our conversation, Jake refers to it as “Daylight Savings Time” but apparently the "s" at the end of “Saving” is wrong (though a pretty common mistake). 
  • We incorrectly guess that Hawai’i recognizes DST. It doesn’t, and neither does Arizona. Indiana does recognize DST, but it wasn’t implemented statewide until 2006. In related news, a small portion of Indiana near Chicago is in the Central Time Zone, while the rest of the state is in the Eastern Time Zone.
  • Phil’s leap year solution is to move New Years Day to March 1st. It solves some problems.
  • Gambit’s staff is a telescoping bo staff, it doesn’t have some kind of pitchfork element as Phil thought.
  • Shemp is the brother of Curly and Moe. Curly is the “hot” Stooge.
  • Phil mistakenly refers to the Stooges' short “Disorder in the Court” as “Odor in the Court”.
  • Mantan Moreland wasn’t a slapstick guy like The Three Stooges but he could have done it. Here he is at the Apollo with with Nipsey Russell.
  • We briefly mention Hattie McDaniel, the first African American to win an Oscar (for her role in Gone With the Wind), but not by name.
  • Phil and Jake watched We Want our Mummy in Phil's New York City apartment in the early 2000s.
  • Here's one of the Stooges' eye-poking gags, and here's Curly spinning around on the floor.
  • The works of Antoni Gaudi we discuss include Casa Batlló, the Sagrada Família and Park Güell.
  • The famous New York City “master builder” whose name we can’t remember is city planner Robert Moses.
  • We cite Moebius (who drew fantastic cityscapes), H.R. Giger (who created creepy aliens) and Salvador Dalí (who painted melty clocks) as artists influenced by Gaudi.
  • The Chrysler Building was designed by William Van Alen. He’s the one who here is dressed as the Chrysler Building.
  • We mention A Trip to the Moon. Apparently the original Paris Euro Disney’s version of Space Mountain was based on the Jules Verne novel! We wish it was based on the 1902 Georges Méliès film where the moon gets its eye blasted.
