for the love of Harry screen cap

I've never seen The Point, but many of my friends know it well (and have performed it in live theater). I hope that I take the time to watch this.

I actually saw it at the time. The song "Me and My Arrow" has been rattling around in my head for forty years now.

I saw it at the time as well!

Hmmm ... me & the Mythical Monkey watching the same exact thang at the exact same moment -- such phenomenon likely won't happen again in this diversified fast-paced media world in which we live right now here today, but it used to be a common occurrence ... waiting at the school bus stop you knew that everyone around you had seen the exact same episode of Laugh-In that you did and at the exact same time you did, you knew that everyone knew what songs went where on the White Album ... well, they DID -- you'll have to take my word for it, sonny!

Me and My Arrow is one of my favorite songs. I thought The Point was pretty cool too--but not as great as that song. Love Nilsson though. It was great how he sang the credits to Skidoo.
