How I long for the simpler times of the mid-sixties.  Mornings when the most pressing thing to think about was which record to play first.

What happened?  Best not to worry about the small stuff.  I have my memories.  Can't take that away from me.

I can do what I can to save a treasured song.  In the spirit of moving along...

What I said the last time.  "And I Love Her"  Lots of emotion in that song, but still the weakest of what's left.

Slow down and enjoy the Christmas season.  Went out and got my tree yesterday.  Got a lot of decorating to do today.
and a big snow heading my way tomorrow.  yes.

I doubt it. No one started out thinking Trump was a fascist.
True: no one took him remotely seriously, including as a fascist. Idiot, yes. Funny guy, maybe. Obama antagonist, clearly. But nobody said "keep an eye on him, he's showing fascist tendencies" before the campaign began.

I wonder if part of the hesitation to make the connections stem from the old "banality of evil" idea: Trump doesn't seem like some evil genius, but just an egotistical if bumbling self-promoter. Could someone without any particular (much less particularly evil) ideology lead an administration into something with such dark overtones?

History would say yes, I think. Not to say that particularly horrific outcomes are inevitable, or even likely. But possible? Sure. The good news is that the USA is far, far more stable than the countries overtaken by fascists.
Stalin would be the big one - but Batista and Peron were also opportunists who seem to have devised their ideologies to fit the occasion.  And all three were bumblers.

john, asked question in What you watch thread. You posted about "Alexander Nevsky" movie, then I rmbr there is other Eisenstein film you might've seen b4. "Battleship Potemkin". Many foreign directors consider it masterwork. I asked twice, 1st time it stayed backpage, you didn't catch it. Today asked again. Thanks.

I never would have guessed when I saw Ringo on his 2001 tour that a post-intermission power trio performance of "Karn Evil 9" by the trio of Greg Lake, Howard Jones, and Sheila E. would be one of the highlights of the night.
And rightly so, because it's fantastic.

This is one of the saddest pieces I know so it's most appropriate here. Rest in peace, sir.
Oh John, you made me cry with that. Sad

Just found that John Williams is behind the music in "Home Alone". Who would think. "Harry Potter" is definitely inspired by it.

Now everybody - Emily, Rei, Betty etc - write your favorites! police

Regarding the character designs on The Simpsons and South Park.....I can't really speak for the creators, but they're cartoons. 

I know it's 20 years old, but I've never seen any of the Toy Story movies or shorts. 
Cartoons-not cartoons - what entered their brain even to depict typical mother in typical family with blue tall hair? If the cartoon created with idea to repeat after real people, don't create each of them bug-eyed as if everybody is twin. Ha! Lame.

Did you see "Two-Lane Blacktop" with Dennis Wilson's single role? Do you like "car" movies?

Yeah - Capote, Malcolm X, The Last Emperor. Ummm. There have got to be more. I didn't like Amadeus or Gandhi as much as most people seem to.
Thanks to answer. What's your fave cartoons? & did you see any car-type movies/ "Two-Lane Blacktop" being BBs fan?

& again ask question, it got backpage, john k might've missed it -  did you see "Battleship Potemkin"? It's regarded Eisenstein's masterwork.
