|Jul-03-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Coen Bros. movie quotes:
FBI Man: "Was the boy wearing any jammies?"
Nathan Arizona Sr.: "Of course he was wearing his jammies, nobody sleeps naked in this house."
FBI Man: "Well could you describe the jammies?"
Nathan Arizona Sr.: "I don't know what his damn jammies looked like...they had Yodas and s--t on them."
|Jul-03-12|| ||kingfu: technical draw,
Do you remember "A Face in the Crowd"?
|Jul-03-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: I was listening to some recent live Bob Dylan concert music. His voice nowadays is best described as a "growl" and believe it or not, it most closely resembles the growling of death metal. He really reaches into his beastly side for some parts and together with a sort of over-the-hill crooner-type thing, his singing today makes the whiny nasal thing he's famous for long forgotten.
But it's hit and miss, like an old-fashioned hit and miss ice cream engine that's never completely efficient.
But the wild thing is the anticipation because of course he's going to triumph at some point with magnificent reworked versions of his famous songs.
It is amazing to see and hear that he literally goes onstage each night to experiment; the thrill for everyone, himself included that it might be the night where he nails it.|
|Jul-03-12|| ||technical draw: I am watching another episode of the old Mission Impossible series. In this one Leonard Nimoy plays a Kabuki actor named-Nakamura!|
|Jul-03-12|| ||WannaBe: Oooooh, July 4th colours are already up, and it's not even midnight Eastern time yet.|
|Jul-03-12|| ||HeMateMe: Nimoy--from alien Vulcan, to secret ops guy, in the blink of an eye...."FAHcinating......"|
Is Greg Moris still alive? He was one of the team.
|Jul-03-12|| ||King Death: < HeMateMe: ...Is Greg Moris still alive? He was one of the team.>|
He died of brain cancer in 1996.
|Jul-03-12|| ||HeMateMe: Andy Griffith died. I was too young to see his original shows, just the reruns. Actually I was old enough to watch his lawyer show "Matlock", but I lost interest in TV after age 13 or so.|
Too, bad, he was really an original. So many favorites from the classical old shows have died. Recently, the guy who played Sam Drucker, from Green Acres and Petticoat Junction died.
Funny, Larry Hagman, an alcoholic who was on "I Dream of Gennie" is not only still alive, but is part of the retooling of "Dallas" which will probably fail. He had a liver transplant, Larry 2.0.
|Jul-04-12|| ||Calli: Andy Griffith Show - I think almost all the adult actors are gone now. Jim Nabors (Gomer) is alive but wasn't on that many shows before getting his own.|
|Jul-04-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Coen Bros. movie quotes:
Marge: "I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work, there, Lou..."
|Jul-04-12|| ||HeMateMe: I liked <Fargo> because: 1) They had Jose Feliciano playing acoustic guitar in a Minneapolis bowling alley; 2) I like that cool fur hat that Francis McDormand was wearing (but I don't think real Minn. state troopers have it); and 3) a deceased bad guy was fed into a woodchipper, which I don't think had ever been done in the movies before. |
One of the Coen brother's best.
|Jul-04-12|| ||waustad: There is actually going to be a chess tournament that includes adjournments this month: http://www.chess.co.uk/twic/chessne...|
This is the first time I've seen that since getting back into chess 5-6 years ago.
|Jul-04-12|| ||technical draw: <kingfu><Do you remember "A Face in the Crowd"?>|
No, but I know it was Andy Griffith's road to fame.
|Jul-04-12|| ||eve l doer: A face in the crowd! We see a much darker Andy there. I prefer the Andy of Mayberry.|
|Jul-04-12|| ||kingfu: Is that your partner there in the wood chipper?
For a first movie, Blood Simple was amazing.
And Raising Arizona and Miller's Crossing and No Country For Old Men and Oh Brother Where Art Thou and and and and and.
One of the best things about Coen Brothers movies is the MUSIC.
|Jul-04-12|| ||kingfu: Technical Draw,
You have to see it although availability may be scarce. C'mon Amazon!
I believe it to be one of Andy Griffith's finest movies. It was his first! in 1955. He probably made a fortune playing the aw schucks sheriff and the aw shucks lawyer, however, he was a GREAT actor.
Also, check out No Time for Sergeants.
|Jul-04-12|| ||HeMateMe: Good guy Fred MacMurray also had some different sort of roles as a younger actor. I think he was a killer in the film <Double Indemnity>.|
|Jul-04-12|| ||Jim Bartle: No Time for Sergeants was funny. I saw when I was about eight at a drive-in.|
Fred MacMurray was definitely a bad guy in "Double Indemnity," a scheming insurance salesman who arranges to murder Barbara Stanwyck's husband, with her help. He also played a lieutenant who turned out to be a bad guy, in "The Caine Mutiny."
|Jul-04-12|| ||andrewjsacks: A Face in the Crowd. There you have a very fine movie and a truly great performance by Andy Griffith.|
|Jul-04-12|| ||HeMateMe: Paul McCartney's Vanilla Sky, live at the Oscar's
|Jul-04-12|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy 4th to everybody in America! We got our independence from England on this day back in 1776 (no offense to England) but I just wish we could get our independence from this idiot Obama! :D|
|Jul-04-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: HeMateMe,
thanks for the McCartney song, I loved it.

500-year-old global map found in Munich
Munich librarians have found a rare 16th century world map that first gave America its name as a continent. The version by German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller survived World War II sandwiched between geometry books.
Several days ago, two women involved in catalogue correction at the library opened a bound 19th century folio containing two printed geometry works. Sandwiched between them was the smaller A4-sized Waldseemüller map, the university said in a statement.
The folio had been bound together by Viennese librarians in 1871, and they apparently did not recognize the map's significance. http://www.dw.de/dw/article/0,,1606...
