  • AND HERE IT'S RISING FROM THE GROUND, EVERYONE--

  • 100 YEARS OLD.

  • ( big band music playing )

  • FOLKS, AS YOU ALL KNOW,

  • THIS IS THE OLDEST TIME CAPSULE IN THE COUNTRY,

  • BURIED HERE IN 1909 BY OUR GREAT-GRANDFATHERS

  • WHO FOUNDED OUR BELOVED TOWN.

  • NOT ONLY IS THIS AN INSIGHT

  • INTO THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY,

  • BUT ALSO INTO THE VERY FABRIC OF WHO WE ARE AS A PEOPLE.

  • ( grunts )

  • LOOK!

  • A JART WAS IN HERE.

  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS,

  • BUT IT MUST HAVE DISAPPEARED OR WITHERED AWAY.

  • - ( sniffs ) - OH! DEAR LORD.

  • THAT SMELLS AWFUL.

  • CHRIST ALMIGHTY.

  • OH OH OH. THIS IS COOL.

  • THIS MUST HAVE BEEN USED IN THE, UH--

  • IN THE COAL MINES.

  • THEY WOULD SOMEHOW HAVE IT STAY ON THEIR HEAD

  • AND THEN WITH THEIR FOREHEADS CHIP AWAY AT THE ROCK.

  • ( chuckling )

  • AH... SOME LITERATURE.

  • "ME AND MRS. GANDY PREPARED FOR THE CAPSULE."

  • HEY, THAT'S MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER.

  • ( man laughs )

  • YES.

  • "AS WE LOOKED AT THE CHEST BEFORE US,

  • I GAZED AT HER CHEST BEFORE ME.

  • AND AS WE LAID THE CHEST INTO THE SOIL,

  • I WILL SOON MAKE MY SOIL ON HER CHEST."

  • AH, HE SPREAD THE SOIL OF OUR LAND ON HIS LADY,

  • MAKING EARTH AND WOMEN ONE.

  • I DON'T-- I DON'T THINK THAT'S WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY.

  • YES, WELL...

  • "MY LADY AND I THEN HAND IN HAND

  • SPREAD THE DOWNSTAIRS MIST FROM THE DEVIL'S CAVE

  • INTO THE GLASS RECEPTACLE,

  • THE EVIL WIND LEAVING OUR TIGHT BALLOON KNOTS

  • AND INTO THE FUTURE."

  • ( sniffles )

  • SUCH PROFOUND WORDS FROM OUR YOUNG LOVERS.

AND HERE IT'S RISING FROM THE GROUND, EVERYONE--
