SHELDON LEE COMPTON: You’re stuck forever in a movie. What movie do you pick, and give us at least one scene from it.
LUKE B. GOEBEL: My life the reality art film. The scene: hahahahhaha. Man, I just want to keep doing this forever, and I don’t want to get any older. Okay, okay, movie…Easy Rider…at the campfire drinking after the diner scene, Billy, Wyatt, and George Hanson and me (I can drink again since this is a hypothetical movie-life, right?) “Man this used to be one hell of a country.” “Talking about it and being it, that’s two different things…It’s real hard to be free when you’re bought and sold in the marketplace…of course don’t ever tell anybody that they aren’t free because they’ll get real busy killing and maiming to prove they are”…out in the swamp. Oh, I get to smoke again! This is the best. Swamp. Swamp. Swaaamp. The next morning never comes, George doesn’t get killed, we ride on.
SLC: Jack White just gave you a 1967 Silvertone guitar. The only thing he asks is this one thing. He says, “No one ever asked me about the mountain. Tell them I said that. Tell them the story.” So what the hell do you tell the first person who asks you about how you got the guitar? What’s the story?
LBG: I don’t know where this guitar came from. Some guy from the mountains name white pipes gave it to me. You ever seen it? Wanna trade me it for a spread out in Joshua Tree? About five acres with some water and a building already standing, worth about 10K tops, with joshuas on the land, and it’s yours? Okay? I’m probably getting ripped off, but I don’t give a shit about any wipe strips.
SLC: It happened. You’ve been thrown in the drunk tank and won’t get out for another twelve hours. Some guy wakes up beside you in the first hour and says, “I had a dream I was you.” He wants to talk about it. Tell us about that conversation.
LBG: Man. I have been to the mountain on this one. I have seen it. And it’s a guy who poops in front of you. Let me tell you, I don’t care buddy. You were me, I was you, we both need a meeting.
SLC: Tomorrow you’re homeless but can pick any vehicle you want to live in. What vehicle will it be? How come?
LBG: HA! HA! This is my dream life! Any vehicle? YOU kidding me? MAN! I want an aircraft carrier with an Elvis Presley’s 1959 FLEXIBLE VL 100 COACH CUSTOMIZED FOR ROAD TOURS BY GEORGE BARRIS IN CALIFORNIA and a plane that doesn’t work but I can put out on my land in Joshua Tree as my house, so make it a big one! Also, I kind of want my BOUNDER back…put it on the aircraft carrier next to The King’s bus.
SLC: A cop pulls you over and demands you change clothes with him, gives you the keys to his cruiser, and then drives off in your vehicle. What’s next?
LBG: Well, shit. He got my Elvis Presley 1959 COACH. I’m going after him and I’m gonna shoot him if he doesn’t give me back my bus.
