“Vietnam Zippos showcases the engravings made by U.S. soldiers on their lighters during the height of the conflict, from 1965 to 1973. In a real-life version of the psychedelic war portrayed in Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Sherry Buchanan tells the fascinating story of how the humble Zippo became a talisman and companion for American GIs during their tours of duty. Through a dazzling array of images, we see how Zippo lighters were used during the war, and we discover how they served as a canvas for both personal and political expression during the Age of Aquarius, engraved with etchings of peace signs and marijuana leaves and slogans steeped in all the rock lyrics, sound bites, combat slang, and antiwar mottos of the time.”
"This is one of my favorite stories of SNL. There was a writer who was waiting for his dinner, he’d ordered dinner and it was delivery. And it was taking forever. And he was a vegetarian, so it was from like the one vegetarian place that’s open at that hour. And he was just complaining and complaining and complaining. And finally, after two hours, he’d called a bunch of times, his food came and it got delivered and Will Forte took it and dropped it out the window."
