Choose Natter Cast. Choose Trainspotting. Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fooking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fooking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fook you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fooking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fooked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?

In this very special edition of Natter Cast, Jason, Gary and Donielle examine Oliver Stone's brilliant yet deeply flawed masterpiece, JFK.

Wherever you come down on the question of JFK, this film is a must see.

On the Trail of the Assassins

Everything begins with Jim Garrison's book, On The Trail of the Assassins

 

 

Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy

Oliver Stone was also deeply influenced by Jim Marrs' book, especially regarding government involvement at the highest levels.

 

Case Close

Gerald Posner's book addresses many of the allegations made by Garrison, Stone, Marrs and others and presents the case for Oswald having acted alone.


The JFK 100

Dave Reitzes webpage "The JFK 100" direct addresses historical inaccuracies, some might say distortions, in Stone's film and provides alternate explanations for the evidence in the case against Clay Shaw and David Ferrie.


Underworld USA

Finally, if you're looking for a great rendition of the JFK conspiracy that admits it's pure fiction, check out James Ellroy's Underworld USA Trilogy


 Wherever you come down on it, whether you think Oswald acted alone or literally everyone in the country except Oswald was involved, we hope you enjoy Stone's movie and our conversation!

Part two of our coverage of Westworld, season 1

Jan 16, 2017

 

In this edition of the Natter Cast, Alan, Cort and Jason discuss the first season of HBO's Westworld.


Featuring...


Dr. Robert Ford - An eccentric genius who has, for some reason, developed a low opinion of humanity after a mere 35 years of running an orgy of sentient Fleshlights programmed to placate the psychopathic desires of bored rich people.

 

 

Bernard - Ford's deeply insightful partner who, for some reason, doesn't seem to notice that he never needs to eat or go to the bathroom.
 

Dolores - Part time robot revolutionary and professional farm-girl feck-puppet


The Man in Black - Griefer completionist and amateur Johnny Cash impersonator

 

William - Okay, it's the 21st century and everyone knows it's okay for boys to play with dolls, but there are limits, Billie.

Logan - Just because you're right, doesn't mean you're not a complete dick

Teddy - He's a loser, baby, so why don't you kill him? A dozen times a year? For 30 years? While your wife and daughter beg for scraps of your emotional attention?

 



Maeve - She can be whatever the frack she wants, as long as it's a madam in a 19th century western saloon

 

Armistice - Someone teach her how to use a phone and then give her my number


Hector - I don't always die mid-sentence while robbing a brothel, but when I do, I....BLAM!
