Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Six Feet Under...who's watching?
« on: July 13, 2004, 02:32 PM »
I'm too cheap to pay for HBO, but before I became such a miser, I was addicted.  So I watch the DVDs and stay content being two years behind everyone else.

I just bought the second season when it was released last week, and finished watching the 13 episodes on Sunday night.  Good, good show.

I heard Season 3 sucks, though.  I caught a few Season 3 episodes while visiting my folks' house (who aren't too cheap for HBO), and got that Nate married Lisa, and then she vanished at the end of the season or something.  I read that she's dead, and something about a dream sequence.  I don't really give a fig about being "spoiled" or anything (the joy of Six Feet Under isn't the destination...it's the journey), so do any of yous guys want to fill me in on Season 3 and Season 4 so far?

Looks really dumb.

But still, I would absolutely love to have sex with Halle Berry.

Does anyone know if the vintage stands work for the modern GI Joe figures?

And they want $17.89 for s&h... ???

Bought it this morning on the way into work.  I'd avoided "spoiling" it by listening to the web stream, and I planned on waiting until I got home tonight so that I could put on some headphones and listen to the album straight through.

I couldn't wait, though, and popped it in on the drive to the office.  I only made it through the first four songs, but they all hit the spot.

There must be some kind of weird Jeff Tweedy thing going on in the cosmos, too, because "Shouldn't Be Ashamed" from A.M. was in my head all weekend.

Virex, have you heard Richmond Fontaine?  You should check them out.  Not as good as Wilco, IMHO, but they have a similar kind of vibe.  Worth looking into......

For the other Wilco fans on here, have any of you checked out Richmond Fontaine?  They're from Portland, and have also been lumped into that alt-country genre, but it doesn't fit them as equally as it doesn't fit Wilco.

They have a similar kind of atmospheric melancholy derived from the roots of rock and roll (notice how I carefully avoided the term "roots-rock"?).

Give 'em a listen.  I'd particularly recommend:

No, no, no.  You can't call Velvet Revolver "the Velvets," since that's what people already call The Velvet Underground.

I was very tempted to pick up the VR cd this morning, but passed until I hear some more tracks or read some reviews.  I did pick this up, though:



It sucks.  Don't buy it.

Potter does nothing for me sorry, can't get over the fact that these are kids books in my mind.  I know adults love them but its never donme it for me

No offense, but that has to be the most uninformed dismissal of the series possible (I've heard it before, too; a guy at my work said the same thing).

While the books certainly appeal to kids, and have kids--or at least adolescents--as the main characters, the stories themselves deal with much more complex subject matters than your basic Ramona Quimby novel.  There's love, lust, death, betrayal, good vs. evil, etc.  Additionally, they deal with what is actually very mature subject matter.  I mean, there's the "fun" magic stuff and Quidditch and all that, but these are the same books that brought the Philosopher's Stone and Nicholas Flamel into the mainstream (well, sort of), for crying out loud.

Alchemy and the occult have never really been the sole domain of rugrats.....

I've got tix to see a matinee with my daughter tomorrow, and I'm going to watch the first two back-to-back tonight.

Hmmm....I thought all of the kids were already substantially older than their characters are supposed to be.  I think I could could buy Harry and Hermione, but Ron's getting pretty huge.  He's already slouching quite a bit not to tower over his co-stars.

He's got the best handle on his character, though.  If they can pull it off with the originals, I agree that it would be awesome.

One thing in that article alarmed me, though.  The director for #4 is the same guy that shat "Mona Lisa Smile" into this world?  That's disconcerting, to say the least.

Man, I'm psyched as all hell about Azkaban.  It's by far my favorite of the books, and the movie looks awesome.  I've got my tix, and I can't wait...

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Episode III Title?
« on: May 11, 2004, 11:31 AM »
I don't like any title that includes the phrase "of the;" it's okay in two of the six, I guess, but half of them?!

Not too creative.

The best title so far has been "The Phantom Menace."  Unfortunately, it accompanied the crappiest movie, but still, a cool title.  Kind of eery, surmises the plot...just cool.  The Empire Strikes Back is pretty sweet, too--blunt and right to the point.

My vote for an Episode III title would be Fallen Order, referring both to the Jedi order and the order of things under the Republic government.

Mmmm...I dunno, though, that's probably just as lame as any other suggestion.

But at least it doesn't have "of the" in it. :D

Bought this last night.



It's really good.  Easily the best of their efforts.  If you used to really, really like Built to Spill and early Folk Implosion, but now find yourself listening to the Shins more and more, you should probably like this album for exactly what it is.

At least I do.
