Too long to post it all here (and it has links to WhoTube videos) but here's the summing-up paragraph:

...And yet, in the final analysis, there is something quite appropriate about this turn of events. The movie [Land of the Lost] is about dinosaurs and perhaps Townshend recognizes that he too is a dinosaur. He used to roam the earth and lesser creatures trembled at his presence. Now, his integrity is extinct, and he is himself a bit of a cartoon, alive mostly through memories and on TV, via the songs in the commercials that pimp product. And of course he will live forever inside the machines that play music, keeping his former soul safe and enshrined.
