1  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Rembrandt in London on: October 28, 2014, 07:33:24 AM
On the off chance you're in London over the next few months and = of course - you like this sort of thing, there's a wonderful exhibition of late works by Rembrandt at the national Gallery. Some detail - possibly more than you'd want - here:

Anyone got a report about the actual show? My man at the scene said BW and band were pretty off the first night, but good the second.

Any chance you could, as they say,  do it again, please?

From The Daily Wail:

"The controversial group is known for its aversion to garlic, publishing specialist cook-books of garlic free Italian and French recipes for its followers." He might have- allegedly - forced some of his male followers to f***, mind you...

I used the older version on my alt LA, but I wish it had the later lyrics!
6  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Santa Ana Winds on: October 22, 2014, 12:23:53 PM
Santa Ana Winds is good.  Lookin' at Tomorrow (regardless of its origins) is really good.

Here's a wonderfully admiring piece on the great man by the Australian writer, Clive james:

And I agree with virtually everything he says!

My favourite song from KTSA by a mile. Intended, in its nascent form, for LA. Was it meant to be part of a California Saga-type trilogy with Lookin' Down The Coast/Song of the Whale? Assuming that Song of the Whale is an alternate title for Lookin' Down the Coast, which I always have, what was the third part (if there ever was one)? Don't Fight the Sea was started by then, so...? Whatever, both Santa Ana Winds and Lookin' Down the Coast would've improved LA (which I mostly like anyway, but there are several songs I wouldn't miss). I prefer the lyrics to the KTSA version, but the LA outtake is less sweetened, so it's six and two threes for me. I also assumed it's largely Al's work. Kinda hoped he would've redone it for his album...

Whisky? The Macallan or or Cardhu or Edradour or Bunnahabhain. Maybe with a little water, but definitely no ice. Jamesons with ice, however.

Smart move when they're shelling the sh*t out of each other and the newspapers are awash with images and stories of dead kids.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Cuddle Up on: October 21, 2014, 03:51:14 PM
Yes.
12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Halloween Movies on: October 20, 2014, 09:42:43 AM
Damn. Should've had The Cat People (original) instead of The Fog
13  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Garry Winogrand on: October 19, 2014, 11:59:04 PM
There was a fantastic exhibition of photos by legendary 'street photographer' Garry Winogrand in New York recently and it's now heading for Pars. Here are a couple of heavily iillustrated pieces on the man and the exhibition:

A very old thread but here's a new link - a recent-ish interview, including much rambling context, with Mr Fagen:

Wish they'd do another Dan album...
15  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Halloween Movies on: October 17, 2014, 11:30:22 AM
These 10 will do it for me:

The Haunting (original - the sequel's terrible)
Night of the Demon (http://fridaynightboys300.blogspot.co.uk/2009/02/night-of-demon.html)
The Devil Rides Out
The Changeling
Dead of Night
Night of the Eagle (http://fridaynightboys300.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/night-of-eagle-sidney-hayers-1962.html)
The Innocents
The Fog (original)
Dracula (the first Hammer version)
Nosferatu (original)

I'd be sorely tempted to replace one or two of these with fringe horror movies - ones which probably belong in another genre but cross into horror, like Psycho, Quatermass and the Pit, Alien or Jaws.

I'd throw in all the Charles Lloyd stuff that the various members of the BB are on.

I avoid canned beer completely. Bottled is better but give me real ale on tap any day. And maybe a whisky to round off the session.

I mean he should "sell" this blog post to us, let us know why we have to read it.

Or, you could take the 5 seconds to click on it, and decide for yourself. Decisions like this are tough, I understand.

I am just giving Ed friendly advice here. I assume he posts links to his blog because he wants to increase his blog traffic. Explaining what the blog posts are about would increase his traffic even more.

Nope. Thought people might find art as interesting as Destiny, cats or the Nobel Peace Prize - and this is an exhibition that at least some members of the board will have reasonable access to.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian's Stock Continues To Rise on: October 12, 2014, 02:57:59 AM
I had Landlord (not as good as it should be), Auld Hemp (better), London Pride (good) and Doombar (so-so).

Here's a piece on David Lynch in light of the announcement of a new series of Twin Peaks. A little pessimistic in places, but still worth looking at.

http://fridaynightboys300.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/david-lynch-returns-to-twin-peaks.html

Updated to include an interview with Mark Frost and a second piece on Lynch
