Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What's spinning?
« on: October 31, 2003, 01:27 PM »
Lost Dogs'll be cool, as will the Live at the Garden DVD set, also due that day.  PJ overload.

Next week's got the live Coldplay DVD/CD set, which should be great, as they're a great live band, in my opinion.

We'll also get, as I mentioned in the hotties thread, Afterglow, the first new album from Sarah McLachlan since 1997's Surfacing.  You can listen to it in it's entirety for free at right now, if you'd like.

There's also a box set of Johnny Cash material taken from all of his American Recordings sessions, over the past nine or ten years.  Five discs total, I believe--four discs of rarities, and one disc of "the best of" the four AR albums.

Comes out November 25th, and should be a fitting tribute to the Man in Black. . .

What's the latest, Matt?

It seems like things are finally starting to get settled down out there, thankfully.

You guys have been in my thoughts since it all started. . .

Watto's Junk Yard / What's spinning?

(Do you like that title?  "What's spinning?"  I thought that sounded at least somewhat original--I mean, GH has the "What are you listening to?" thread, and there's a "What's in your CD player?" thread at R-------m, and I think there might have even been one here before, too.  But what the hell.)

Now playing:  Aimee Mann, "Calling It Quits", from Bachelor No. 2.  Good stuff.

Any recent purchases worth noting?  Anything good coming up?

Are you like me?  Do you like the rock n' roll?  Yuh. . .  yuh got any gum?

Miss Zemanova

Ha-ha.  Exactly how long did it take you to find a "decent" pic of her, Scott?

My goodness.

Oh, and I forgot to mention:

I wondered how long it would take before some lame-o posted yet another pic of Shania.  

Not that she's not attractive, but aren't there like, a ton of other hot girls to post pictures of?

Hate to do it to you, Scott, but you're getting Carnor-ized:

 ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

Nice going indeed :'(  Its sad to think you might have been Mister Liz Phair if only you would have talked to her...

I can understand the urge not to though...Brad Johnson when he played for the Vikes sat at a table right next to me once and  people were bugging him all through his meal.  This is when he is eating for crying out loud.  I left him alone and I think that is only right

Yeah, but that's a little different, though--bugging a guy while he's trying to have a meal is one thing, but saying hello backstage isn't nearly as bad.  You're supposed to mingle!  I think, I just felt really self-conscious, and just like a big ol' geek, and didn't want to bother her from whatever she had to do--not that she would have anything to do, anyway, after her show.   ::)  What was funny was that my buddy, who had only heard of her from me talking about her on the way down to Dallas, actually did talk and joke around with her a little bit.

I did manage to get a set-list, though. . .  

And, man, you guys should have seen what she was wearing that night.  It was like this kind of baggy sweatshirt top-thing, and some black, satin-type hot pants, and fishnet stockings, and boots.  Holy geez. . .  (Where's that drooling smiley?  Someone add it on here.)   ;)

There are pics of her from this summer, although not in that same outfit.  I'll see if I can find them. . .

Did you guys see Liz Phair re-enacting the fake orgasm scene from When Harry met Sally on VH1's I Love the 80s Strikes Back?  Good stuff.

Oh hell yeah.  I've had a crush on her for almost ten years, and I stopped, mid-step, as I was walking past the TV during that scene.

"Funny" story regarding me and Liz Phair:

An old roommate of mine is a roadie for the Flaming Lips, and they were on tour earlier this summer with Liz as the opener.  They came to Oklahoma City on one night, and went to Dallas the next (and I went to both).  Well, my roommate remembered me playing Liz's albums while we lived together, so he was going to do what he could to arrange us to "meet" at the show.  

So, while they're setting up for her set, he brings her out to one of the wings of the stage, and me and Liz wave at each other--like we've been friends for years or something.  A little later, during her set, I was taken backstage to get suited up as a furry animal for the Lips show (which is where my avatar comes from), and as I'm getting the suit on, here comes Liz backstage.  We made eye contact and everything.

But--hey--who's too much of a ***** to say anything?  That's right, me.

We kind of brushed shoulders a couple more times that night, and I was just so trying not to be "that guy", that I never even had the balls to say as much as hello to her.  The buddy I went with had a camera with him, and we all took pictures with Wayne from the Lips, and even Steve Burns from Blue's Clues, but never even a pic with Liz.

I regretted that as soon as we were driving back home that night, and still do today.

Nice going, Virex.   :-X

Finally got around to watching A Mighty Wind and I couldn't agree more on that selection

You know, I liked her in that, but I thought she was cuter as the white-trash Dairy Queen employee Libby Mae Brown in Waiting for Guffman.

"Who's on top, and who's on bottom now?!?!"  Heh.

Old-school hottie:

Raquel Welch

My wife loves Sarah McLachlan she is a definite hottie

Yeah she is.  Tell your wife that she can listen to the whole new album for free at, if she wants.  I've listened to the first four tracks, and so far, so good. . .

Back to your regularly scheduled hotties:

Parker Posey (cute as a damn button)

As promised. . .

Liz Phair

Sarah McLachlan (whose first album in six years, Afterglow, is releasing next Tuesday)

My computer sucks.  More later. . .

Two things:

First of all, this needs more updating (page 4?!?!  Come on, guys).

And secondly, it needs more color:

Halle (and a straw) Berry

Tyra Banks

More later. . .

Here are a couple of threads, from the Home Theatre Forum and DVD Talk, regarding the new DVDs:

Guns N' Roses DVDs Avaliable October 28th (HTF)

Guns n' roses dvd's coming Oct 28th!!! (DVD Talk)

(Watch that HTF thread, though--it was derailed halfway through by some ****** from Oklahoma who couldn't shut up about the concert he went to back in the day. . .)

And this is supposedly the track-listing for the Greatest Hits CD:

01. Welcome To The Jungle
02. Sweet Child O' Mine
03. Patience
04. Paradise City
05. Knockin' On Heaven's Door
06. Civil War
07. You Could Be Mine
08. Don't Cry
09. November Rain
10. Live And Let Die
11. Yesterdays
12. Ain't It Fun
13. Since I Don't Have You
14. Sympathy For The Devil

What a piece of crap.  No "Estranged", but yet we have the horrid cover of "Sympathy".  And no rare or live tracks--the Live at the Ritz version of "Knockin'" from 1988 would have been cool--that was all over the radio in late '88 and '89.  

('Course, if they added a rare or live track that I didn't already have, I'd be pissed, too--having to buy it just for that one track, but I digress. . .)  :)

Oh well.  Doesn't look like it's coming out, anyway.

. . .looks like Velvet Revolver may never take off.  That dumb a$$ Weiland got arrested again.  This time DUI, under the influence of narcotics, hitting parked cars and fleeing the scene. . .

Are you kidding me?

Hell, that's vintage G N' R behavior, my friend.  Maybe the old Guns guys are putting Scott Weiland through some hazing or something, to get him up to speed on the G N' R way of things. . .  :)  

Their album will be out sometime next year, and I'm looking forward to it much more than Axl's project.  I guess there's a joke going around that says we'll see real Chinese democracy before that album comes out. . .

As for the DVDs--I'll get 'em when I get 'em.  No rush.  I've got them all on VHS, which I hardly ever watch, anyway--and these things are basically the exact same stuff.

Oh, and that reminds me!  I heard last night, that Geffen released the DVDs without Axl's "permission", so now Axl's record company is suing Geffen.  Apparently, there was a (crappy) Guns N' Roses Greatest Hits CD that was scheduled for a November 25 release, which has now been delayed due to the lawsuit.

Sounds a bit silly, but then again, this is Axl we're talking about. . .

More as I find it.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Episode III Released Early
« on: October 24, 2003, 03:15 PM »
Well  I am going to be the first person in line for the film!  That's right dogs.  I am headed out to the theatre with my laptop so I can keep posting back to you folks.  I don't care if I get hungry and cold with the impending Illinois weather coming up.  I will be there in line from now until opening day!  All the media will be covering me and you all will be sooooo jealous!  

Hey, uh, maybe you didn't catch the news, but the super-secret exclusive engagement is only going to be at the Cinemark 24 in Twin Hills Mall in Walla Walla, Washington, for next week only.  Just be sure to ask for "Big Momma's House 3".  The theatre attendents have been trained and ordered to feign any knowledge of the Episode III release.

You don't ask fo' Big Momma, you don't get in.
