1 - just don't like it.

Useful obsession. Smiley Then I could send you half-baked recording with me singing famous song in English for you to decide if my accent is good or bad but...I delete these things quickly. Tongue

2KDS: Thanks to the detailed write-up. Speaking of musicals, did you see any stage musical based on music bands/ artists' catalogs?
4  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: The What Are You Reading? Thread on: Yesterday at 04:09:35 PM
Obviously, there's the 1999 Matt Damon version of the first book
Highsmith also wrote Strangers on a Train, which became one of Alfred Hitchcock's famous films.
I'd seen "Strangers" - not bad. Matt Damon's "Ripley" is good, with cool jazz & retro music playing throughout the film. Matt's very underrated, people usually associate him with "Born" stuff but I think he's got chops to do any role. I'd like to see John Malkovich' "Ripley", really extraordinary thespian.

Same here. I used to drink a lot while younger, but thankfully came to my senses before becoming a full fledged alcoholic.
I rarely drink now. We have a tradition of going to the Smoky Mountains in the Fall and buying a couple  bottles of BlackBerry wine at a Gatlinburg winery. I like to drink a glass after Thanksgiving dinner.
I bet you regret being stupid like that Cheesy when you were young. I figured you didn't drink at all whilst touring various countries, performing in choir etc. Didn't you fear being fired? Do they employ people like the kind you were, drinking much? Roll Eyes Doesn't make sense.

Been strict teetotaler since arriving to the planet Earth. Top that, ha.

It's spam post.

Didn't read the 2 mentioned books but by description, looks like I wouldn't like the either.

In an alternate reality where this era made Carl and Dennis quit the band for good, what do you think would have happened with the other three guys at the helm in 1978 onward...?
Thinking about it today, the answer is Al, Mike & Brian will each start solo career.

Can you elaborate on that, RR? Smokin
Expected "genius" music but...it fell flat.

0.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Love & Mercy biopic reassessed on: Yesterday at 04:30:45 AM
Paul Giamatti's performance is imo the best acting in the 80s scenes.

Paul Giamatti has a knack for stealing the show in biopics. 

Check out his roles in Private Parts (Howard Stern) and Man on the Moon (Andy Kaufman).
He should be given Oscar. Did Giamatti get it for any picture?
12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: The What Are You Reading? Thread on: Yesterday at 04:25:30 AM
"A Calf For Christmas" by Astrid Lindgren. 5/5, nice tale.
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: Yesterday at 01:12:29 AM
3. Carl should sing it in duet with Marilyn McCoo. Would be cool. As is, it's still nice.

If itís strictly them playing music and all that, thereís The Yardbirds (Beck/Page line-up) in the film Blow-Up
Just checked its Russian wiki page - interesting, its plot's taken after book in turn inspired by "Rear Window" which is big favorite Hitch film. But it says BU contains many explicit scenes which I'd really hate seeing, it repulses. Dilemma.

2KDS: I didn't see "The Wall" but read that people like hearing the album songs in its film frame but just album they don't "get" it. Will you agree with it or disagree?

Do you like it? I'd seen many praises given to Monkees film "Head" & the Who film (the title escapes). "The Wall" got praised as well but it looks like many enjoy the 60s-70s films as far as music artists' works.

Buckethead is new favorite poster. 1st, she said few niceties to me & that she liked my posts which means a lot to me. I like when people care about things I say/ music links I post, to be extremely blunt. Then, she said few tales (where she's been etc.) I really enjoyed to read. & I like the style she writes in - casual, at the same time without getting too familiar & polite, sometimes playful. Hello to you.

RangeRoverA1 - I first heard Sylvie in a cafe in Calais, France in 1977.  She was singing, in English, Jim Croce's Leroy Brown on a record. I loved her sound and asked the owner about her. He couldn't believe I had never heard of her. He acquainted me with Ye-Ye and played a half dozen more of her songs. I could never place her accent until I learned that she was originally from Bulgaria - I can hear a slight SE European firmness to the end of her words that is not typically French. There is no particular song of hers that I especially like, just her voice, intonation, style.
Then you can speak French fluently if can tell difference between real French & SE Europe accent? Would it be right to say you're French living in America?
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Stevie Nicks or Christine McVie? on: April 19, 2018, 03:46:46 PM
but I definitely prefer the Green-Spencer-Kirwan era stuff
I knew I wasn't alone! police 3D Peter Green's vastly underrated guitarist (& singer). What's your favorite songs during this FM era?
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Discuss Every Beach Boys Song Day By Day on: April 19, 2018, 03:43:25 PM
We get it, you won't discuss M.I.U. songs. Don't repeat the same darn thing over & over & over.

It shows.

Edit: ah we got to new page. grabbing this questionnaire for Buckethead:

You like Sylvie? When did you hear her? Which song is favorite, French & English? I discovered Sylvie just last year & really liked. Btw, you gave Sylvie's voice apt description - self-assured indeed. & military.

Paging Buckethead! 3D

Got out of the wrong side of our bed this morning, did we?
Maybe YOU did if you find problem with the other poster's music view? Last I checked, this is free board where everybody can state what they like & dislike.

Such lame nickname, "the Boss". Roll Eyes Springsteen's voice is big pain in the neck. Besides, his music is dreadfully boring, including HH. Couldn't care less about Dion either.

Sandler's been in a few dramas which he was surprisingly good in - Funny People, Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish and Reign Over Me (I've only actually seen Funny People, though I've heard nothing but great things about Punch-Drunk Love). Hell, Click has some heavy, effective dramatic moments as well, particularly towards the film's climax.

As for singers, there's George Harrison's cameo in Life Of Brian for one
Well if they say great things about it, doesn't mean it is. Wait before *you* see it.

Is it where George talks to mic/ camera like reporter? It's Terry Gilliam film right? The question was different - about singer/ band playing themselves, strictly music, not single bit of acting, no lines, no talk with any main/ supporting cast.

Speaking of cat, went with him to visit veterinarian, his right eye got smaller due to allergy. The doctor said it's conjunctivitis. Prescribed special eye liquid drops. We checked few enterprises to find them but then some nice cat lady gave the address to different place in the other end of the city. We drove to it & indeed those super rare drops were there. Drove back, now few hours later he sleeps in basket, the eye doesn't bother him for now.

It puzzles me great deal when people care about some poster being possibly insulted with whom they never talked with or contributed much in the said poster's threads. In this case, usawoman. What's the sudden concern? <-- Rhetorical question, if you're going to write again in/direct insults towards anything I say, I'll let you have final word (or better do it in head coz I don't care).
