For members of Costco (warehouse store), you probably saw the interview with Neil in their monthly magazine (I’m guessing Costco is selling his autobiography).
Costco Connection: Are there things still left on your ‘bucket list’? Still things you’d like to try but haven’t had time to get to?
Neil: These days it’s all about closure of this and that for me. I have too many things to finish. How can I move on until I clean that slate? My film Human Highway [made in 1982] is one of those things. It should be available to the public. Dean Stockwell and Russell Tamblyn, my old friends from Topanga Canyon, and Dennis Hopper, a good old friend, were in this movie with me, and we wrote the dialogue as we went along. It is the dorkiest damn movie ever, and it walks a very fine line right on the edge of being too dorky. Some may say it falls over that line. The film was never put to rest to my satisfaction.
When I finish something, I want it to be right, or as right as it can

Maybe Rust Will Have a Nap: Jonathan Demme Rejoins Neil Young by Nick Catucci
Published: May 17, 2012
At the end of this trailer for Jonathan Demme’s latest Neil Young concert film, Young explains why “you don’t have to worry if you lose friends”: “‘Cause they’re still in your head. They’re still in your heart.” Young is still very much with us, praise be to whatever god they worship in Canada, and before he can live on in his biggest fan Demme’s heart and mind, he’s hanging out in the guy’s films — “Neil Young Journeys” makes three of them. They’re nice places to be, with good music, not too much going on — a drive through small-town Ontario in an antique car, say — and hardly even a hint of mothball mustiness. Groove on.
“where I used to catch fish”
and yes, Joe Wash – it’s the same movie, sometimes to take time to see into things.
