ScoreKeper Asks If Grusin's Score For THE GOONIES Is Good Enough For You?

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here with a subtle reminder that what's good enough for you is good enough for me! Every major soundtrack collector and film score enthusiast throughout the world maintains a wish list of holy grails and cherished treasures that percolate their own fantasies of movie music bliss. For years my own personal wish list was crowned by THE RIGHT STUFF (1983) by Bill Conti. My dream turned into reality last year when Varèse Sarabande finally announced the release of this heart-pumping, adrenaline surging, flag-waving collection of anthems worthy of the moniker "the right stuff." With THE RIGHT STUFF firmly ensconced in my collection, what new coveted film score would rise up and take the seat at my number one slot? For me, it was an easy choice: THE GOONIES (1985) by Dave Grusin. I have wanted to own this music for so long! It is one of Dave Grusin's finest and a staple adventure score of the 1980s. Ask and we shall receive. Who is that who was come to the rescue yet again, but none other than Varèse Sarabande! Varèse Sarabande just announced this morning that they are releasing THE GOONIES as part of their limited edition Soundtrack Club series. The bad news is that this is a limited edition title and will most assuredly sell out as most of their Soundtrack Club titles do. The good news is that the limit is 5000 copies and not 3000, 1500, or 1000 as are the majority of their other titles. This means that it probably won't sell out tomorrow (hmmm? at least I hope).



I'm utterly ecstatic! This is such a wonderful score and it has been neglected for far too long. Legal entanglements kept this off the market for nearly three decades while wistful fans longed for the day when they can enjoy this fantastic film score! Here is a track listing for the new disc:
1. Fratelli Chase (2:49) 2. Map and Willie (2:16) 3. The Goondocks (Goonies Theme) (2:04) 4. Doubloon (1:47) 5. Lighthouse (1:19) 6. Cellar and Sloth (1:41) 7. Restaurant Trash (:55) 8. The "It," Fifty Dollar Bills and a Stiff (4:36) 9. It All Starts Here (1:30) 10. Plumbing (1:25) 11. Skull and Signature (3:25) 12. Boulders, Bats and a Blender (2:33) 13. Wishing Well and the Fratellis Find Coin (2:49) 14. Mikey’s Vision (1:52) 15. Oath and Bobby Traps (1:06) 16. Triple Stones and a Ball (2:11) 17. Pee Break and Kissing Tunnel (2:06) 18. They’re Here and Skull Cave Chase (3:03) 19. Playing the Bones (4:19) 20. Water Slide and Galleon (1:38) 21. Octopus (1:02) 22. The Inferno (1:14) 23. One Eyed Willie (3:05) 24. Treasure, Data & Mouth, and Walk the Plank (3:18) 25. Sloth & Chunk (1:58) 26. Mama & Sloth (1:58) 27. The Fighting Fratellis, Sloth's Choice and Ultimate Booby Trap (3:24) 28. The Reunion and Fratellis on Beach (3:39) 29. No Firme and Pirate Ship (2:42) 30. End Titles (Goonies Theme) (3:06) Bonus Tracks: 31. Fratelli Chase (original version) (3:35) 32. Triple Stones and a Ball (original version) (1:54) 33. They're Here and Skull Cave Chase (original version) (1:55) Octopus (original version) (1:03)


Varèse Sarabande also announced this morning they would be releasing THE SPIRAL ROAD (1962) by Jerry Goldsmith (limited to 3000 copies), THE SCOUT (1994) and DREAMER (1979) by Bill Conti (limited to 1000 copies), and THE MANHATTAN PROJECT (1986) by Philippe Sarde (limited to 1000 copies). Thanks Varèse Sarabande for keeping up your due diligence in order to get this score released. "Goonies never say die!"

    The same reason abortion 'A Christmas Story' is the GREATEST MOVIE EVER. People just associate it with their childhoods which are usually a "better" time in their lives. It's the same reason everybody hated Indy 4. The original three were JUST as ridiculous, but the films reminded people of days long since past, thus romanticizing their memories of said films.

    It appeals to my nostalgia because of the era and style of film-making it evokes, even though I didn't see it for the first time until I was in my late twenties. Maybe thirty. I still love that film. I saw the Goonies, first run. I don't have the same nostalgia for that film.<br><br>Speaking of Chris Makepeace, whatever happened to that guy?

    Also, the Fratellis were bonafide killers, who were basically chasing the Goonies to kill them for being witnesses. And also Chunk came face to face with a frozen stiff. Definitely scary stuff for a kid.

    by D.Vader

    I downloaded tracks from this soundtrack back during the Napster heyday of 2000-2001. Where did those tracks come from if there wasn't a proper release? What I had was really the Fratelli Chase (AWESOME bit of music there) and main theme, but I wonder now where it came from. A foreign release maybe? <p> Cant wait for this. Consider it purchased.

    Previous Goonies score releases

    by finky089

    I'm not an expert on this, but I believe there was a limited release in the late-80's. But it was only select portions of the score, not the whole thing. I think it was packaged as a 2fer combined CD with selected music from Harry and the Hendersons (also Grusin.) But this VS release looks to have at least 65-70 minutes of music on it. <p> I'm SO in score-geek heaven!

    by 24200124

    "The Goonies" was one of my favorite movies growing up. Yes, it does have something to do with being young, watching the movie when it came out in theaters (twice in one weekend for me) and wishing for a type of adventure like that. It's not to do with "films from a better era" or anything like that - it's more to do with the fact that this movie is perfect rainy Saturday afternoon viewing. It's a lot of fun and certainly a fuck of a lot better than what passes for kids' fare these days. Also, when I was young, I had the soundtrack album, which had all the pop music on it and one instrumental score track by Dave Grusin, which happened to be called "The Goonies Theme". I thought for sure it would be the aggressive leitmotif of the chase sequences, but it turned out to be the "reflective" theme that was played over, like, maybe TWO scenes in the entire movie. Having this score is a must for me; it's one of the film's ingredients that draw me to it over and over again. I've ordered my copy and wait eagerly for its delivery. Thank you very much, ScoreKeeper - your presence on this site is invaluable.

    What a brilliant score we could have...

    by JediJones77

    One reason the movie is so beloved is precisely because of the score! As opposed to Gremlins where the score was pretty much standard issue stuff that wasn't particularly noteworthy (it WAS by Jerry Goldsmith after all), it's impossible to imagine The Goonies being as entertaining or even having the same feel without the utterly original and totally indispensable Grusin score. The Fratelli chase sets the perfect tone for the movie right off the bat, with its sense of tongue-in-cheek thrills, chills and spills. The music in the attic when they discover the map is absolutely haunting. It adds a surprising amount of dramatic weight to the quest, reminding us that this movie isn't just a comedy but also a real adventure where people we care about are in real peril. The fantastic score even papers over some of the movie's flaws. I'm not sure Mikey's speech in the well is all that inspiring as written, but the Grusin music is so touching and inspirational, there almost didn't need to be any dialogue at all for the scene to work. There are plenty of suspenseful action cues during the underground chase scenes, lighthearted interludes like the waterslide and absolutely breathtaking crescendos during the final scene as the pirate ship sets sail. This is one of the most inspired and inspiring movie scores I've ever heard. It was one of the few that tried to compete in the same arena as all the John Williams' adventure classics (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Superman, E.T.) and truly held its own. Many of us film music fans have been waiting for this CD for a very, very, very long time. For me, there is unlikely to be another entertainment event this year that will match the release of this CD for anticipation, excitement and (expected) satisfaction.

    Jaka, RE: Eddie Murphy.

    by Subtitles_Off

    I think what happened to him is fate. By that I mean, it seems to happen to all the comics, even the "edgier" ones. If they yearn to be in movies, eventually, they just jettison their youthful style and volunteer for Hollywood and family-friendly comedy.

    great post on your blog about the NFL. I don't watch as much of the Rams as I used to. One reason...Leonard Little. Killed a woman while drunk driving. His sentence: 90 days in jail, four years probation and 1,000 hours of community service. He later was arrested again for DWI and found not guilty, despite failing three Field Sobriety Tests and admitting to drinking to the Police. He should be banned from the NFL and still in prison. Makes me sick what sports figures can get away with. (reposted due to BAMF)

    Who hates GOONIES?

    by YackBacker

    Subs. Most of them, yep.

    by Jaka

    Robin Williams seems to stick out as something a little different to me. As a stand-up the dude it just the embodiment of a 100 speed binges gone wrong. But as an actor he's been able to reign that in all the way back to 'The World According To Garp'. But most comedians definitely fall into the trap you describe above. Murphy fell really deep, though. I guess a lot of people dig those movies where he does ten different character and/or talks to animals. They aren't my cup o' tea.

    I think the problem with Murphy is his ego got in the way

    by YackBacker

    When he was starting out, he had an attitude but that was part of his act- you know, to raise a little hell. But he was experimental, he pushed buttons (my favorite SNL skit of his was when he went undercover as a white guy). But at this point, he's all "I'm Eddie, motherfuckers!" and he's completely unable to drop the ego and do really funny stuff.

    NATALIE PORTMANOGRAPHY

    by Six Demon Bag

    where to begin with my relationship with my main girl natalie??? should i start with her deciding to slum it up in those indie ventures collectively known as STAR WARS? or should i tell you about how and why im not allowed within 200 yards of her? no. perhaps we should start at the beginning like every good story should...<P> i remember flipping thru the latest iss of EW in some boring high school class and came across the review (A- if i remember correctly) of THE PROFESSIONAL, nee LEON. i was hooked by the premise and having liked LA FEMME NIKITA (lured by landis' INNOCENT BLOOD--but i digress) i was on my waay to the movies..my natalie gives a sensational performance as an abused and orphaned child who is determined to avenge her brothers death.i was in love with this petite girl at first sight..that choker didnt hurt either. <P> onto a little film named HEAT..wow this girl has a kickass agent for getting her roped into great films..playing off her teenage manic schtick, she did her part, though unfortunately, its the weakest part of the film. <P> she more than redeemed herself with her next film, ted "anyone down for a game of hoops" demme's BEAUTIFUL GIRLS..such a great little film and a very mature performance from ms. portman. literally stole the film from all involved in my opinion..if i ever have a girl, her name will be marty because of this film <P> after her stunning turn in BEAUTIFUL GIRLS, woody allen chose to use his perceptive skills of using actresses before they REALLY HIT IT BIG...hence the musical EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU..a quaint lil film from the wood man. shes respectable.. <P> next is MARS ATTACKS, arguably tim burtons last real film..where she holds her own against glenn close and jack as their daughter..so much is going on in this film that really no one really makes an impression, which i think is the point..everyone is playing an outdated overblown stereotype, and if thats the case, she brought her A-GAME. <P> after her born to play role on broadway of anne frank, she played whats-er-name in THE PHANTOM MENACE..oooh a dual role..say what you will of the film and the wooden delivery of the lines..she looks great in the kabuki costume..natalie has to eat too! <P> didnt see ANYWHERE BUT HERE or WHERE THE HEART IS..so we dive into ATTACK OF THE CLONES..yikes..ok ok she doesnt get to wear the kabuki costume anymore and goes for a more natural look..the lines are stiff still...dont worry i think it gets better with.. <P> COLD MOUNTAIN..another ensemble piece and damn even she looks luscious as a civil war widow (?) who takes in jude..this film is great and works suprisingly well..and natalie does great in a small part.. <P> GARDEN STATE..officially her first manic pixie muse role..i will say for the record that i hold no ill will towards zach braff but i think i exclusively wrote and directed this film so he could hook up with natalie..all in all its good, but an introverted mope fest. <P> with a giant gasp of relief, natalie chose to star in CLOSER..a powderkeg of a film and i really cant tell whos side im on in that film..damn shes so cute in this film...and her acting chops FINALLY earned her a nomination..all around a great film, just not one you wanna watch a lot. <P> REVENGE OF THE SITH..she finally cashes her last paycheck for her role as a doomed wife of lil ani! the best of the bunch, acting wise... <P> V FOR VENDETTA was good but i noticed in this film that my girl needs to eat more starches. i eally liked the shaved pate look..but hte script fell flate towards the end.. <P> i missed her next few roles in PARIS J'ET AMI and GOYAS GHOSTS..and have been wanting to see MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS, with norah jones... <P> HOTEL CHEVALIER was a notable WTF moment that made a lot more sense when you watch its sequel--THE DARJEELING LIMITED..which even though natalie has a blink and you miss her shot, was awesome. very understated and paced the way a nice film should be. <P> missed THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL but my mom loves it..as did she like MR MAGORIUMS WONDER EMPORIUM, which i did have the (mis)fortune to see...hoffmans doing a depp-like turn as a toystore owner and natalie is the bright spot as an employee who just wants nothing more than working there..i think she played music too..radiant as ever..but the film sucked. <P> NEW YORK I LOVE YOU (a counterpart to PARIS...) followed which i havent seen and BROTHERS is coming out next week, so im sure ill see that happy little film.. <P> which brings us to THOR and BLACK SWAN, another comic film and a darren aronofsky film...i repeat the girl knows how to pick them... <P> next time on "...OGRAPHY"----> ?????

  • March 16, 2010, 4:13 p.m. CST

    And a similar problem applies to Mike Meyers

    by YackBacker

    You can even see it unfold in the AUSTIN POWERS series. The first movie was quirky, absurd and hilarious in my opinion. The third one was almost a cynical retread, like Meyers was sitting there thinking "Is this what these fuckers wanna watch? Fine!" <p> I'm sitting here trying to think of a comedian who has sustained his or her appeal over the course of decades... someone that has not lost that touch. George Carlin is all I can come up with.

    by YackBacker

    McQueen had the benefit of being in some major ensemble movies- GREAT ESCAPE, MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, etc. But the movies he did where he was the main star have a different feel, in my opinion. It would be like saying your favorite Marlon Brando movie is THE GODFATHER when he was only one of several integral parts. It would do Brando more credit to choose something where he dominated, like STREETCAR or WATERFRONT. I just wanna give McQueen his due.

    Hey, guys. I was actually laughing when I did the (apparently not) suicidal attack on Harry. I knew it was going to look ridiculous, and the humor in the following posts didn't let me down. I thought if I was to get banned, it better be funny. <P> There was an unintended twist to it. I didn't even read the headliner, let alone the article, so people thought I was the one who directed some stinker. <P> I have no hatred nor love for Harry, so it wasn't anything against him. I also wasn't stark raving mad like some thought, nor was I weepy-eyed and cutting my wrists. It was kinda freeing, in a funny way, though.

    If an Ography fell in the forest....

    by Jaka

    ...would anybody hear it? <br><br> First thing I'll say about Nats is that I never expected her to have a career after Star Wars. Because that's what happens, more often than not, to actors who didn't have some kind of established career prior to Star Wars. Since I'm on Star Wars I'll go ahead and comment on her work, there. I don't hate it, but I think it shows how wooden the actors were DIRECTED to be. We'd already seen that she could actually emote in The Professional, a film I really enjoy. In general I‘d have to agree that she‘s not an exceptional actress, but I don‘t think she‘s a bad one either. Jury‘s still out for me. She‘s still young and doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. <br><br>Heat is a favorite of mine. It's a meditation on it's own genre. I love that Pacino and DeNiro don't speak to each other until the climax of the movie. And I'm a Val Kilmer fan. Wish the guy worked more, actually (guess the rumors are true). But I had honestly forgotten she was in that movie. <br><br>I'm sure I've seen Beautiful Girls.. I mean, I know I have. But I don't remember it at all. And I may have a hard time re-watching it if Rosie O'Donnell is in it for any length of time. I dig Dillon, Hutton, Thurman, Rapaport and Plimpton, though. Man, why can't I remember that movie?<br><br>For sure I've never seen 'Everyone Says I Love You'. I have no kind of a mission to see every Woody Allen film. When it happens, it happens.<br><br>I'm a huge Tim Burton fan, disagree with what most people think of his more recent work, and I never liked Mars Attacks. Just never dug it. That, Sleepy Hollow and Charlie are my three least favorite Burton films. <br><br>I liked Cold Mountain. Nice depressing little period piece with great acting from all involved. But again, her part isn't really sticking out in my memory. Probably because Nicole and Rene were so strong in that one.<br><br>Garden State. I too hold no ill will towards Zach and I actually enjoyed this movie quite a bit. Friends and families do this kind of shit to each other... at least mine do. And I've stood on a cliff and screamed with a group of friends before. Wasn't raining, though. I guess I'm a fan of quirky little mope fests.<br><br>I watched Closer once and I remember it being a tense and well acted study of the shitty things people do to each other in relationships. But here’s the thing, and I’m not sure if this has been gone over yet, I can’t stand Julia Roberts as an actress. I mean, DAMN! Can’t even watch her onscreen most times. Just bugs the crap out of me. So I think I’ve put most of this film out of my memory. I remember Nat’s ass looking particularly spectacular in the strip club scene, though. And I remember wondering, “what was Clive Owen thinking during the filming of that scene to keep things appropriate?” Because I would have failed. http://tinyurl.com/ylnxq6u <br><br> Hotel Chevalier was a huge WTF? for multiple reasons. One, it’s just a weird scene that doesn’t make a lot of sense on it’s own. Two, she gets all nekkid and stuff. Three, are the bruises all over her body real? That‘s what I remember most. I just figured, because of her hair cut, that it was filmed post V for Vendetta and they were. *shrug* http://tinyurl.com/dm7csa <br><br>I used to try and hate The Darjeerling Limited. But that was only because I was still angry at how much I REALLY hated The Life Aquatic (and still do). See, I was a huge fan of Bottle Rocket and The Royal Tenenbaum’s (one of my very favorite movies) and The Life Aquatic was just such a huge letdown for me (and still is). Nat’s not really in Darjeerling so much, so I won’t talk about it any longer than to say that I’ve grown to like it quite a bit.<br><br>Dude, stop missing The Other Boylen Girl! Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson, what could be wrong with that? I really dug that film. It’s a bit of a “chick flick”, but it looks great and there’s plenty of Tudor era backstabbing going around. Plus, I think it may be Nat’s best acting this far. <br><br>Mr. Magorium’s. Really, you think it sucked? I don’t know if I’d go that far. Not great, but I can’t give it suckage. However, it is one of those that I caught on a slow day of cable movie watching. Definitely seemed like Hoffman was trying to hard, but Jason Bateman being in it kinda made up for that. <br><br>Sheeew. OK. Haven’t seen anything released since then, nor any of the things I didn’t comment on.

    Suenteus Po

    by Jaka

    Estarcion's third aardvark, who has lived several lifetimes and has shaped the history of Estarcion. It is also a very common name and several people named "Suenteus Po" appear in the story in various roles — one as an enigmatic illusionist and another as a historian who narrates a sizable portion of Cerebus' first reign as Prime Minister of Iest (though it is very strongly implied that both these Pos are the aardvark). It is mentioned in High Society that some of the followers of the original Suenteus Po named their children after him. The name may be a playful mis-spelling of the name of Roman historian Suetonius.

I say the exact words aloud "Hold on babe, before I get jacked-up on a boner-rage, I gotta tee up this rubber."<p> I was immediately amazed at the sentence after the fact. I look over at my girl and she's crying laughing at me. The laughter goes on for about a solid minute. She asks me "What the fuck is wrong with you? Who says that?" but she's laughing the whole way through. Unfortunately this ground all hormones to a halt. But a half-hour later, we figured it all out again.

  • March 16, 2010, 8:01 p.m. CST

    The Rules, not yet ratified. Amendments are being heard.

    by Subtitles_Off

    THE FIRST RULE OF PEDALBACK<P> Scrape your fucking shoes! That shit can't be Dysoned out of my 70s-retro shag! No matter what your personal history with some other Talkbacker, you leave that childish crap at the door. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you and the other guy probably think there's a Right and a Wrong. So find yourselves a fucking STAR TREK or AVATAR thread and go to it over DEƒUCK® there! <P>That's how we can seperate The Noobs from The Peebs. <P> THE SECOND RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>Peebers are human. Humans make mistakes. It's the INTENTION that's important, not the word. <P>THE THIRD RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>Pop culture is TRIVIA. Discussing it is fun. Passion about it is good. Typing "Your Favorite Whatever sucks" is NOT the same thing as typing "You suck because you like Your Favorite Whatever." However,each Peeber, according to Rule #2, can only be in their own Peeberhead and can never really know where another draws their personal Line In The Sand. <P>Peebers will remember that at all times. We have thicker skins, and with thicker skins comes the responsibility of looking out for and protecting the thinner skinned ones, when we can. <P> THE FOURTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>We don't pile on. Yeah, drama can be funny. But, you poke too many grizzlies, and eventually Flick's art-school professor is gonna have to get his dick out. When a Peeber sees two others reaching for matches, a Peeber MEDIATES. A Peeber doesn't instigate. <P> THE FIFTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, leaves Pedalback for good without a two-day notice. <P> THE SIXTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>We take Steve McQueen as our guide, not Christian Bale. Steve McQueen didn't give a shit about Professionalism. Steve McQueen cared about class. Steve McQueen looked out for the little guy. Steve McQueen had a good relationship with all of his D.P.s. Steve McQueen knew how to treat a lady. Steve McQueen wasn't ever a pussy, either. it ain't about the size of your dick. It's about the fit and the gentle way you use it until you're given permission to use it rough. <P> THE SEVENTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>Anybody who leaves can backpedal anytime. It's our fucking name! No questions asked. No grudges held. No laying in wait for a good opportunity to pounce and get revenge. You scraped your shoes when you came in. If you were hiding some shit in a pocket, hoping to fling it later, you're a poser. <P> THE EIGHTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>There is a choice, when confronted with another Peeber who is drunk, fiesty, temporarily ill-tempered or otherwise breaking the rules. The choice to engage or to walk away. Peebers always choose wisely. <P> THE NINTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>Peeberhood is a sacred thing, but it is not exclusive. Peeberhood cannot be coveted, since it is offered freely. You only have to ask. A sense of humor helps, as does patience with (sometimes drunken) silliness. <P> Anyone invited by an O. P. (Original Peeber) is immediately accorded the Priveleges of Peeberhood, providing they agree to follow The Ten Rules of The Pedalback. We do not Black Ball another Peeber's chosen Brother. Black Balls are for arrogant coonts. Blue Balls are another matter entirely and the only weakness of a Male Peeber In Goodstanding. <P> THE TENTH RULE OF PEDALBACK <P>Kurosawaness is next to McQueenishness. If you've never seen a film directed by Akira Kurosawa, you better see one within three days of yesterday.

They sometimes have just the right music, editing, voiceover, etc. that they thrill me more than the films can possibly hope to. <P> Speaking of 300... The Clash of the Titans trailer(s) is one of my favorites right now. It obviously has that post 300 look, but that has little to do with my liking the trailer. I love the editing, the dramatic "DAMN THE GODS" text, and even the Mickey Mousing music. It makes the movie look like a lot of fun.

    Cheeses, what about TUC didn't work for you

    by YackBacker

    I had misgivings after I first saw it, but overall I've grown to adore the film. But the misgivings I had were mostly about Kirk being a bigot through 2/3 of the movie. Kirk and Spock fighting was also kind of a tough thing to deal with too- these guys have been through Hell and back a dozen times over. I guess people have their bad days, it just sucked that they had it in their last movie. But yeah, Kirk being suddenly hateful to Klingons (especially after saluting them at the end of STV) didn't work for me. <p> But now, I really love the movie for all of the things it got right- particularly the final scene which is perfection.

    And there should have been more Captain Sulu

    by Jaka

    He's only in a couple books, and there's only one official Star Trek: Excelsior book (although it ties into some OS books very nicely). I would have loved to see a Captain Sulu movie. The Voyager episode works better than it should, but it was kind of forcing the issue at that point.

    by YackBacker

    It's TREK meets 2001- it's the only science fiction movie of the series. Every other movie's core story could be transplanted to another genre. I love 70s hardcore sci-fi (books and movies), that's why I'm a sucker for TMP.

I just don't think The Final Frontier is a well made film. The studio didn't care, it was a Shatner vanity issue (because Nimoy was directing) and they just went with it. <br><br>And in regard to Generations, it's actually the books around the movie that make it better. Not the actual novelization.

    by Subtitles_Off

    The world jumped off Prince after "Raspberry Beret." Even though he'd hit after that with "Kiss" and "Batman" and, arguably, the best double album besides LONDON CALLING, SIGN ☮ THE TIMES, he stopped being a world-beater with "Raspberry Beret." <P>All to the good, I think.<P>Even when he was being a pouty little symbol and making indecipherable albums, he was still able to make killer track after killer track. At least two or three per year.<P>He toned down the need to shock, and, therefore, he ceased to become the lead article. But, as he proved at The Super Bowl, he's a musician. It seems kind of proper that he's still on the fringe during the era of posers.

    I always liked that link- 1) It made V'Ger more consequential-- what really happened out there between the probe's launch and its return to Earth, right? and 2) there's something cool about a machine invented by humans creating its own race, which in turn becomes the mortal enemy of humans. V'ger's mentality in TMP matches the Borg's pretty closely.

    I've voiced my "thing" with Star Trek (2009)...

    by Jaka

    ...quite a bit and at great length, so I'll give you a short version (as short as I can). <br><br>First, I've seen a couple big pieces of it on Blu-Ray at a friends house. I'm not one of those people who bashes it because of the way it looks, or lens flares, or JJ Abrams. I'm a JJ Abrams fan, so that's not the issue at all. From what I've seen it LOOKS fantastic. Especially the ship in space scenes, which were pretty spectacularly breathtaking, actually.<br><br>But it was unnecessary and it was lazy. It's the studio following trends like studio's do. There are a ton of Star Trek stories still to be told AFTER the movies and series that have already ended. There are actors that have expressed their desire to continue telling these stories. The suits just brushed all that aside as if it didn't matter to anyone. Now, I understand that it was very successful and that they brought in new fans. Great. Mission accomplished. But they also lost some, and believe me, they know this.<br><br>My biggest gripe though is that, to me, it's just as much revisionist history as 'Enterprise'. Kirk and Spock (and Pike for that matter) have EXTREMELY well documented back stories in the books. Many of them are considered to be some of the best Trek books ever written. ST 2009 just shits all over them, especially Kirk and his relationship with his father. <br><br>Last, how in the world can you so flippantly recast one of the most iconic cast of fictional characters ever created? I mean, we're all sitting here discussing them and all of us aren't even Trekkies. People just KNOW those characters. It's insulting, especially considering many of the actors are still alive (not that they could play those parts any longer, but it doesn't change the fact that they're living and breathing and now being ignored). More, although I think they did a great job of re-casting McCoy, and a decent job with Kirk, I absolutely HATE the rest of the cast. <br><br>Lastly, I'm so tired of time travel plots and in particular, Star Trek time travel plots. It's old, it's an easy out, and I found the random inclusion of Spock as a character completely contrived and unbelievable.<br><br>But like I said, it looked purdy. : ) <br><br>And not Lost is on and Sawyer is back, so I'm going to have to ignore any posts I want to respond to for the next hour. See ya then.

    by YackBacker

    On its own, it's not terribly good sci-fi- it demands that you appreciate TOS on some level (casual or fanatic). It's a cinematic version of a cover band. It's a good cover band, but it still relies on some pre-existing affinity on the part of the audience.

    Star Trek Borg

    by Jaka

    From the Wiki entry for Borg (Star Trek). http://tinyurl.com/3xmynb For better or worse (worse, imo) there are ST books written outside of the official canon. I've found most of those books to be disappointing and confusing. I'm pretty sure they've stopped releasing them all together since all the series had book re-boots a few years back. Everything is canon now. Here is the paragraph about V'ger from the Borg Wiki page, considered non-canon. <br><br>"The extra section of the game Star Trek: Legacy contains the "Origin of the Borg", which tells the story of V'ger being sucked into a black hole. V'ger was found by a race of living machines which gave it a form suitable to fulfilling its simplistic programming. Unable to determine who its creator could be, the probe declared all carbon-based life an infestation of the creator's universe, leading to assimilation. From this, the Borg were created, as extensions of V'ger's purpose. Drones were made from those assimilated and merged into a collective consciousness. The Borg Queen was created out of the necessity for a single unifying voice. However, with thoughts and desires of her own, she was no longer bound to serve V'ger. This explanation, however, is not canon." <br><br>Further down the same page you get a couple paragraphs regarding the books I mentioned above. Evidently they were late 2008, not 2009. <br><br>In the novel Lost Souls (the third book in the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy) the Borg are revealed to be the survivors of the Caeliar city Mantilis. Thrown across the galaxy in the Delta Quadrant and back in time to approximately 4500 BC by the destruction of Erigol. At the climax of Gods of Night, the first book in the trilogy, a group of human survivors from the starship Columbia NX-02 and stranded Caeliar scientists try to survive in a harsh arctic climate. Most of the human survivors die of exposure, while several Caeliar are absorbed into their race's gestalt to give life to the others in their groupmind. The Caeliar offer the remaining humans a merging of human and Caeliar, to allow both groups to survive. The human survivors are resistant and as time goes on, the Caeliar called Sedin becomes the sole survivor of her group, her mental processes and her form both degrading as time goes on. When the humans return to Sedin for help, she forces them to merge with her, unwilling to allow herself to die when a union can save her life. The forced merging of the humans and the mostly-decayed Caeliar results in the creation of the first Borg. The gestalt group mind is perverted to become the collective, driven by Sedin's desperate hunger and need to add the strength, technology and life-force of others to her own. Ironically, while the Caeliar were - albeit accidentally - involved in the creation of the Borg, they also provide the means to end it; in the 24th century, the Caeliar absorb the entire Borg collective back into themselves, ending the cyborgs' centuries-long reign of terror." <br><br>A little bit more about this great trilogy can be found here. http://tinyurl.com/yfgeeb4 Without a doubt, those books created more change to the Star Trek universe than any before. As I mentioned before, the Borg get pissed off about losing all the time and finally make a full out attack on the Federation. Not one cube sent to Earth, but thousands of cubes transwarping into Federation space, destroying many planets outright, as well as huge parts of many others (including Vulcan). 82 billion lives are taken, and it's not pretty. In fact it was quite sad, messy and very dramatic. Now referred to as "the mess that Mack made", I think David Mack did a more than admirable job of shaping the future of Star Trek in the realm of all the books outside of TOS. All of the series - TNG, DS9, Voyage, Titan (Riker's ship) and the whatever they decide to do with the USS Aventine (Ezri Dax's ship - a new class) - are in the same time frame telling the same ongoing, interconnected story.<br><br>Of the books listed that are already released post Destiny Trilogy, I've finished 'Losing The Peace', a great follow up on TNG side of the story. In case you've missed my previous ramblings. Picard and Crusher FINALLY get together and Beverly is pregnant. So Picard can finally be at peace about his family line continuing. I'm in the middle of A Singular Destiny right now and have the rest of the follow up books for all the series sitting on the shelf waiting. ... I'd get through them a little faster if you Peebs weren't so damn fun to chat with.

    the shaky cam (actually used effectively here)lighting and context of the scene sucked me right into a frantic drug addled foot chase.

    Cats

    by Jaka

    Jake and Fatty Lumpkins are brothers. They've been together since the womb. Their mother and father are my sister's cats. The mother's water broke on my lap and I stayed for the birth. They're only 11 months right now, still kittens, really (but big ass kittens). <br><br>My Moms names Jake after Kevin Costner's character in Silverado. She was over for a family gathering and noticed that he kept doing stupid acrobatic stuff, like hanging upside down on the underside of the couch arm. I thought it was fitting. Full name is actually Jakeford Costner, because it makes me laugh.<br><br>Fatty Lumpkins started out as Skinek, or Skinenk of Vulcan, because he had the skinniest neck EVER, and really weird tufts of ear hair that made him look like he had curved, point ears. However, he got hella fat and the ear tufts disappeared. On any given day he gets called Skinek, Fatty, Fatty Lumps, Fatty Lumpkins, Floppy Cat and Asshole Face. He responds to all of them.

    and have enjoyed most of the episodes this season, but for being the final season, and knowing an end date 3 years ago, they could have written this season a bit more concise. It's dragging a$$. I still anticipate the show each week, but I'm as engaged with this "showdown between good and evil", especially since we as viewers still don't know the stakes. We're in a 6th season and have no idea what the island is, or what all of these factions are about. <p> Yes, I'm not a hollywood screen writer. I'm sure it's a difficult job to write these shows and keep continuity. I just feel it's progressing like a non-series ending season.

    by Subtitles_Off

    March 16, 2010: Part I ...Teddy is an Original Series Trekkie who enjoyed the 2009 re-boot enough despite a little "shoddy scripting" - ★★★☆☆. ...Cheeses recommends "Morel Orel," the Adult Swim claymation parody of that old Christian show with the kid and the talking dog. ...Cheeses and Flick have the fourth simultaneous post of The Pedalback @ 12:35:49 A.M., and it qualifies as a simultaneous thought - the second. Cheeses, having been a party to three of the four, declares himself the "Tiger Woods of Simultaneous Posting." ...Cobra shares a "Salmaography," dedicated to the work of Salma Hayek, concentrating, of course, on changes to the size of her breasts over time. (http://tinyurl.com/ydn3w5u) ...The Future Mrs. Col. nursed him through his cold with constant attention and THE FISHER KING. Feeling better, he mock evangelizes , preaching "AVATAR as the True Path to Geek Redemption following the Fall that was the Prequel Trilogy." ...Flick wants to see Robin Williams in a Quentin Tarantino movie. I wonder if William's improv would combust in contact with QT's dialogue, resulting in a Big Bang of language that would birth a new universe of rapid-fire communication or a flame-out. I see two heads exploding from laughing at themselves too hard, and a set covered with the smoking viscera of giant forehead and hairy parts. ...Orange juice all over my keyboard inspires Pulp Fiction sequel. See what I did there? ...STLost shares The Five Creepiest Sex Scenes in Comics (http://tinyurl.com/yafwvsh), and threatens me with watercording if I don't get the Subbary® posted. ...Stabby sees Michael Moore's CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY, which just makes him angrier about the effect of corporate greed on America. He says it's probably the least Mooriest of the Moore documentaries, with less comedy than the previous ones and the director leaving himself out of the picture until the end of the movie and concentrating more on the substance of the issue. ...I told you we'd get new rules! Yack suggests we all acknowledge Steve McQueen as a Patron Saint-of-Sorts to guide us in Pedalbackery. (http://tinyurl.com/ydntrsz) ...McQueen to Gary Oldman in 6º or less: McQueen and Paul Newman in TOWERING INFERNO → Newman and Tim Robbins in HUDSUCKER PROXY → Robbins and Morgan Freeman in SHAWSHANK → Freeman and Gary Oldman in BATMAN BEGINS. 4 degrees! Well done, Sixies. ...Yack's writing a novel! For reals! ...Stabby and Sixies will both be IN THE LOOP. ...Jaka's tentative return is made official. ...McQueen to Michael Caine: McQueen and James Coburn in THE GREAT ESCAPE → Coburn and Bruce Willis in HUDSON HAWK → Willis and Gary Oldman in THE FIFTH ELEMENT → Oldman and Michael Cain in BATMAN BEGINS. 4 degrees! Well done, ST! McQueen and Slim Pickens in THE GETAWAY → Pickens and Caine in BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE. 2 degrees! Well done, Stabbers! McQueen and Robert Duvall in BULLITT → Duvall and Caine in SECONDHAND LIONS. 2 degrees! Well done, Yack! ...GaryOldman's in the house, and so is SteveMcQueen. It's gonna be a glorious day. ...Iron Man Practicalities #1: How can Tony Stark scratch an itch when he's armor-alled? ...Iron Man Practicalities #2: Um, evacuation of the bowels? ...TURKEY!!! ...Jaka wikis BAMF! and uncovers a connection to (shudder) Dane Cook. ...STLost simultaneously posts with himself in an experiment, successfully adding to scientific knowledge and, thankfully, not ending up in some sort of freak accident that would produce a time paradox or a super-villain. ...ESPN, love it or hate it? ...Andre Agassi's has always been a charitable guy, despite his "bad-boy" image. ...Yack blogs on The NFL (http://tinyurl.com/yzemlyu) ...Goonie Goo Goo (http://tinyurl.com/b3c4nv) ...SCHHHWLOKPT! to Node #44124 ...Vades joins the chorus against Channing Tatum as "Captain America." ...And Diox wonders why we're still not interested in "Stargate." <P> To Be Continued...

    by Jaka

    It's one of the "inside" bits of the series I've always found interesting. I've always had a love/hate with Lost, though. This season is somewhere in the middle, for me. I'm holding out hope that it will knock me on my ass by seasons end, but I don't want to get my hopes too high, either. Not sure who reads or posts in the Lostbacks, I don't any longer. But my belief is that the flash sideways (which are kind of strange and slightly contrived to me, but starting to make more sense) are the show we're going to be left with after the island sinks due to some mistake made during the finale battle. I don't know if this will ever really make sense, it's just what I think is going to happen.

    Courtney B. Vance has one of the most terrible scenes in all of filmdom talking about "retard" life from his "retarded" P.O.V. It's a Hallmark movie, so it's meant to be sincere, but it backfires like a pig roast at a Bar Mitzvah.

    A DOG NAMED CHRISTMAS...

    by STLost

    I think was a Hallmark film from this past Christmas season on CBS. The wife and I watched it. Usually tearjerker flick, with happy ending. Wife cried. I just got something in my eye, that's all! I wasn't crying! An eyelash got on my contact lens! Leave me alone!

  • March 17, 2010, 12:03 p.m. CST

    Jaka

    by ColonelFatheart

    I found last night's Lost a little underwhelming, but I'm satisfied with the season so far. It all seems like a natural progression from what they've been doing. Of course, I'm naturally skeptical that the ending will hit all the marks, but I'm a little more confident after these first eight episodes. <p>Last night's episode was light on mythology but heavy on setting things up. There were no "ahhhh!" moments, just plot and character mechanics. I'm expecting a big mythology dump next week, though.

  • March 17, 2010, 12:04 p.m. CST

I just don't get watery all that often. <br><br>Colonel, I'm expecting a large mythology dump next week as well. Or at least a classic episode. The dynamite scene with Jack and Richard was gold last week. I agree about the character development last night, too. And it makes sense after the previous weeks ending. I thought Kate's evident capture was a big point. And Sawyer playing Locke against Widmore is interesting. But I just can't get over the feeling in my gut that all the coincidental meetings of characters LA X time (some of whom had very little to nothing to do with each other on the islands) are a little forced.

    by Jaka

    Oh yeah. First, I got it as a download when I paid $77 to join he completely useless Lotusflow3r website. Then I paid the full $15 (plus tax) price for it when it was first released. I dig it. It's way better than a couple of his other recent releases. But it I think it suffers from Princes inability to self edit. It should have been a double disc set, at best. Of course, I don't really dig most of Bria's disc, so that would make it a lot easier to edit. Heh. <br><br>Hey, have you checked out Cerebus TV? http://www.cerebustv.com/ It's an interesting look into Dave now, with Cerebus finished as a devout man of faith. He'll probably be talking about a lot of stuff you haven't read yet. But I don't think it takes away from reading the books for the first time. In fact, it probably adds to the experience, knowing what he's talking about and where the ideas came from.

    I'll take skill over...

    by Jaka

    ...heart and desire any day. I don't necessarily agree, though. The NBA season is more than twice as long as the college basketball season. They need to pace themselves much more to stay healthy and injury free for the entire season. Add to that the NBA playoffs, which can be almost another entire college basketball season, where they literally beat the crap out of each other every night. And it really depends, some teams hate each other, and they play exceptionally hard no matter what time of year it is. Some teams just aren't very good and they always look lazy.

    My frustration is with Congress.

    by ColonelFatheart

    They had a supermajority in the Senate and a big majority in the House. Much has been done, but it's all under the radar stuff, not huge reforms, or at least they're not evident. Or it's stuff that's targeted directly at bandaging the myriad wounds left by Cheney and Co. The stimulus certainly doesn't get the credit it deserves, and most of its effect is supposed to be felt this year. <p>But the Dems in Congress sure got a firecracker lit under their ass when Scott Brown won in Mass. We've seen one "jobs bill" after another since then, and health care is on the verge of passing. Things are happening, Jaka.

  • March 17, 2010, 12:47 p.m. CST

    Jaka, Obama and the Dems squandered the opportunity

    by Stabby

    to do something, anything with their majority in the House and Senate. We're still in Iraq. the war in Afghanistan has been escalated. No one on Wall St. has been held accountable for their thievery. Gitmo is still in operation. The health care bill is a disaster. They will not have the majority after next year's elections.

    I of course agree with you. The iniquities of the way we're taxed in this country has been a problem for a very long time. But again, we all know this, yet nothing changes. Talk gets us nowhere. One side is no better than the other side. This is the frustration that led to me starting off on a rant about politics this morning.<br><br>Agreed, Colonel. I actually believe it's getting worse, and will continue to do so as America grows rapidly more diverse.

    'moose recommended "Parenthood," too.

    by Subtitles_Off

    I watched the premiere episode and enjoyed it well enough, but I just can't keep up with too many serialized dramas. It's my memory thing. I like one-and-done shows.<P>Catching up...Obama's rep as a "do-nothing" is sort of unfair as he's been painted with a brush by Fantasy News while being handicapped by a legislative majority of sore-genitalled Democrats who have spent most of the time arguing with each other over how to bitch-slap the bad guys from the past. The public was serious when they voted for change, but Politics is set up to work against change. Stabby's ideas for radical change would never be endorsed by career politicians, even if the people all wanted them. Add the expectations that were set too high for Obama to begin with, and you have the recipe for Malaise Cake.<P>Prince post-comeback: "Musicology" was aimed squarely at radio when radio was busy looking at other things, like hip-hop and Disney pop. The tour, however, succeeded beyond expectations, making The Lazy Hippie market accept Prince into the pantheon of Post-Boomer Rockers That Matter, alongside Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. "3121" is a much better record than "Musicology" and represents Prince's first completely-successful integration of contemporary R&B into the Purple Rock. After his Super Bowl triumph, I wish Prince had done a live album of new rock or of wild covers, so kids could buy his version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" somewhere. "Planet Earth" turns up the guitars! It's got some filler, but it's an album in the old-fashioned "Purple Rain" mode. The "lotusflow3r" thing is a mess. There's a lot of really good stuff on it, but it's sequenced terribly which makes it seem like you have to wade through a lot of garbage to get to the good bits. Imagine if he had dumped the Santana fetish that he was waving around to get Salma Hayek's attention and just made a protest record out of "Colonized Mind," "The Dreamer," "Chocolate Box," a few more tight guitar songs,and some of the funky, "you kids don't know what you're doing" stuff from "MPLSound." That would've blown some minds. His NFL song for The Vikings was painful, but his newest stuff, "Cause & Effect" (http://tinyurl.com/y9n9oay) has a good old "Let's Go Crazy" feel.<P>Basketball? Got nothin.'

    by Jaka

    Been preaching all of the above for years. Our debt is so ridiculous as to not be real. The numbers are too large to even fathom. What's most important is that we focus on clearing are debt with China. Because they basically own us. The fact that we owe the Federal Reserve for each bill they print is also a large part of a hugely broken system.

    Prince Musicology forward

    by Jaka

    Well, backward first. Despite the messages and the annoying vocal overdubs, I think The Rainbow Children is best thing he did last decade. I wanted his music to continue in that organic funk vein, but he quickly moved past it. I agree with some of what you said after that. First, I don't think 3121 is better than Musicology, but I rate them pretty much the same when all is said and done. No big deal there. However, I despise Planet Earth. Haven't listened to is since shortly after it's release. Pure laziness. A bunch of leftovers tossed out on a CD to take advantage of the momentum created with the previous two albums. Sounds like we're pretty close on Lotusflow3r. It just needed an exec producer to edit and arrange it down to two discs. I mean, great, you've got a new girlfriend. Most of her songs are wack, dude. I dig Cause & Affect, but won't speak on that other track you mentioned.

    STLost, I agree re: term limits in principle

    by YackBacker

    But you have to consider how both political parties will operate under such a system. Will they hold even more power over elected representatives because they possess the money needed for these "fresh faces" to run, or will campaign funds start coming in through new channels directly to individual candidates? Term limits addresses one aspect of the problem, but it could create new challenges too.

    by STLost

    I've been watching less and less TV. I just don't see the need to follow shows anymore, and as the weather changes, I anticipate season finales so I can finally free myself and go outside and do things with my daughter. <p> Plus we don't have cable/satellite anymore, so it also limits the shows we watch. <p> Right now I watch 3 shows on a consistent basis: LOST, CHUCK, and THE OFFICE. I watch AMERICAN IDOL and KITCHEN NIGHTMARES with my wife. She doesn't watch much TV either. <p>I've found that my decreased TV involvement has led to a less stressful life for me and my family. Stressful might be the wrong word, but I feel more relaxed and less tethered to the boob tube. <p>I'm not saying TV is bad or good, and not putting anyone down who watches a lot of TV. Just noting my experience. <P> I visit rec.arts.tv sometimes, and wow, there are a few people on there that watch a TON of tv. They watch so much, they DVR a lot of it. Then they complain they don't have enough time to watch them all, and get backlogged and stressed out. It's kinda funny.

    Prince does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    Prince is an artist greatly appreciated by the dojo... I still make CD's (remember them)... and this is the track list for my last Prince compilation, which chronologically covers Emancipaton to Musicology (haven't got his latest yet). Basically I listen to the albums 3 or 4 times, then whatever sticks out as cool and memorable gets a slot on the CD...<p> JAM OF THE YEAR, IN THIS BED I SCREAM, MY COMPUTER, STYLE, THE HOLY RIVER, NEW POWER SOUL, DINNER WITH DELORES, GREATEST ROMANCE NEVER SOLD, RAINBOW CHILDREN, DIGITAL GARDEN, THE WORK, EVERYWHERE, SENSUAL EVERAFTER, FAMILY NAME, LAST DECEMBER, DEAR MR MAN, CINNAMON GIRL, MUSICOLOGY.<P> Out of that little lot i'd say my 3 faves are IN THIS BED I SCREAM, NEW POWER SOUL, and LAST DECEMBER.<p> The man's still capable of producing some fantastic tracks, but as others have said - the ratio of glory to forgettable is highly askew. For every great track there are at least four or five that are meh.

    Legalize it and tax it, but don't expect the tax from it to solve any real issues, because as soon as it's legalized, it loses all of its rebel appeal and much of the younger group that partakes of it, now, will move on to chemicals. To the woe of all.

In any case, as much as I personally dislike the 2 major parties, they provide order to chaos in a lot of ways. Mind you, I wrote that thing 13 years ago-- there was acrimony in DC, but nothing like we have today. If I sat down to really think about it, I may view the 2-party system differently now.

    Subs, do you really believe that?

    by Jaka

    Because $5 plus dollar a pack cigarettes hasn't stopped people from smoking those. People still drink alcohol like water. I fully believe that legalizing marijuana would cause/allow/bring more people to smoke it. Regardless, the taxes on it would be ridiculous, thereby creating a massive new revenue stream. It would stop nearly all spending on the fight against illegal growing and importing. It can be used for about a thousand other products. It would go a long way towards saving small farms. And it creates twice the oxygen of trees. <br><br>But back to Prince, I'll email you the continuation of that conversation.

    Alcohol is still illegal for teens. THAT'S why they want it.

    And that's when they develop the habit for it. Look at European countries where kids are drinking from Toddlerhood. An entirely different relationship with alcohol.<P>Tobacco was this nation's economy in its early years. And, nicotene is addictive. That's why people smoke. "Cigarettes are cool" is an advertising gimmick.<P>Marijuana is not addictive, so there's no need to continue it once you've started it. You can stop any time. The appeal of marijuana is its hippie chic and its danger due to its being illegal. Take that away and all your left with is the intoxicant, which, being lower-key and more relaxing, doesn't hit the same notes as alcohol and other drugs.<P>Of course, I could be talking out of my ass. I've never really studied any of it. I just think, if you take away the danger of pot as "illegal drug," all you're left with is the hippie aspect.

    Also, he wants to concentrate on new music. He's following the career advise of his idol Joni Mitchell, who absolutely saw "Best Of" collections as the end of her career as a viable musician. You give the people a "Best Of" of your most popular work, you can expect to eat forever but never sell anything new. It was no coincidence that soon after releasing a "Hits" and a "Misses" collection, Joni Mitchell announced her retirement, which she's stuck to, uh, sorta, making a slight return with music for a ballet a couple of years ago.

Worst Van concert I've see (and I've seen a good number of them). Bob rocked so hard he almost fell over, twice! I guess I caught Bob on a really good night. I've heard he's hit and miss, but I was really impressed.

    He rehearses them to death and has cancelled shows when he didn't think they were up to par. I think he lets that get to him while performing. Plus, evidently, he's shy. That always trips me out when somebody has been doing something for that long. But you can see it on stage. Not a lot of movement, black sunglasses. It had to be the same tour, because I think that's the only time Joni toured in like, forever. I've seen transcendent Van shows, and I've seen ones that literally made me angry. It's worth the risk, though. Anyway, yeah, Van was part of it on the West Side. Because I know somebody who saw them down south, as well.

    by Subtitles_Off

    You can't deny the element of rite of passage that is represented by doing something "wrong." And "fun" isn't the issue. Socializing is. Hangovers aren't fun. Wrecking your car isn't fun. Waking up after sleeping with a stranger isn't fun. Well, um, yeah, all those things ARE fun, and the element of danger associated with all of it - and, escaping danger, most of all - adds to the fun. I never said kids would stop drinking alcohol if the legal age were lower. <P>Alcohol hits different buttons. That's why you can get hyper on alcohol. <P>Pot doesn't have that effect. It has a mellowing effect. Buzzed on pot, you're completely satisfied in a dark room, playing vids and listening to Floyd. That's not the big go-to FUN experience for most kids who want to go out, get loud, see some boobies and break shit.

    There are a load of ex-hippies and the next generation - now in their forties - who smoke pot. Like me. But, I don't think we smoke it in the mass quantities we used to. And, I stand by my theory that it's not something that attracts the younger generation in a big way.

    The biggest downside to herb

    Wilbury's

    by Stabby

    "Wilburys" was a slang term coined by Harrison and Lynne during the recording of Cloud Nine as a pet name for various types of equipment in the recording studio; Harrison, referring to errors caused by malfunctioning equipment, jokingly remarked to Lynne: "We'll bury 'em in the mix".[1][2] The term was used again when the entire supergroup was together. Harrison suggested "The Trembling Wilburys" as the group's name; instead, Lynne suggested "Traveling", which was agreed on by the group.[1]

Her cancellation coincides with recent Tabloid rumors of infidelity involving the Oscar-winner’s husband Jesse James, 40. Bullock issued a statement through a Warner Bros. rep: “Due to unforeseen personal reasons, a trip abroad to support The Blind Side has been deemed impossible at this time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your continued support of the film.”<P>why should she promote the film anymore? she got hers.

  • March 17, 2010, 4:15 p.m. CST

    I searched for corned tofu recipe..

    by Jaka

    ...but all I found was corn and tofu recipes. I think this is something we should rectify. Corned tofu must be made. I suppose you could take some firm tofu, drain and pat it dry, roll it in the "corning" spices, leave it in the fridge overnight and bake it the next day. Yes? Seems like it would work.

  • March 17, 2010, 8:06 p.m. CST

    And yeah, the Claremont/Byrne days were excellent.

    by TedKordLives

    I was just re-reading some of that from my roomie's trade paperbacks.

  • March 17, 2010, 8:07 p.m. CST

    Just re-watched Watchmen yesterday...

    by Jaka

    ...on cable while we were pedalbacking. I know it's very close to the source material. Too close some would say. But I still don't like how different Ozy (how much of his story is left out, at least)and REALLY hate that Dr Manhattan ends up being played as a villain. I can't even argue that it doesn't work, because it does. I just don't like it. Oh, and the guy player Night Owl 2 gives me the heebies. Anyway. I'm sure this has all been gone over before.

  • March 17, 2010, 8:08 p.m. CST

    I find it odd...

    by TedKordLives

    ...My roomie has the Dark Phoenix Saga, but it's only like three issues! I'm sure that there's a lot of subplot stuff in earlier issues, but the main story is so freaking short! It seems to me that Claremont shoulda drug that out a little longer.

  • March 17, 2010, 8:09 p.m. CST

    That's all greek to me Cheeses

    by Jaka

    I can say 'Phoenix Saga' and name all the characters from the movies. Beyond that I'm really pretty X-dumb. But the excitement everybody has for the eras/writers/books that were good always get me interested again. Just your little paragraph makes me interested. Then I think about how many issues it is and go, "ehhhh, maybe another time".

  • March 17, 2010, 8:10 p.m. CST

    Geez

    by Jaka

    Ozy is. The guy who played. I need to start proofreading. Seriously.

    It only takes a second, Jaka.

    by TedKordLives

    And it makes you look more smarterer.

  • March 17, 2010, 8:13 p.m. CST

    The reason Watchmen did not connect with audiences...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    In my opinion, was in the first 5 minutes of the movie…there is a TV show talking about Dr. Manhatten and his effect on politics, Yet, he is never shown on screen….THAT alone would have enabled people to UNDERSTAND what was transpiring and set them in the proper mind-frame…they knew it was superheroes…but when Manhattan shows up 1/3 of the way into the movie, the noobies are all like what? Who the fuck is this blue guy who doesn’t like pants?

  • March 17, 2010, 8:20 p.m. CST

    Wish I could stay and talk about Watchmen.
