  1. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote}pturman, thanks for the Elliot Smith song. You mention its use in Wes Anderson's *The Royal Tennenbaums*. Are you a Wes Anderson fan, and if so, have you seen his latest, *Moonrise Kingdom* ? > It's very good, funny and sweet without being in the least sacharine or cloying.

  2. Aprapo of nothing, Check out this hauntingly beautiful sequence from Wes Anderson's masterpiece THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS. The singer/songwriter is the great 90's grunger Eliott Smith. Google him (Eliott Smith) to learn why this scene is especially poignant given his (Smith's) personal bio.
  3. This is from his move ONE TRICK PONY that was his love song to musicians everywhere, famous or not.
  4. Looks like we're both in a 70's mood tonight, Eugenia!
  5. I was 13 when this song came out. Ah, what a cornucopia of imagery & possibility this song presented to a boy just becoming a teenager.

  7. I am just a poor boy though my story's seldom told . . .
  8. Check out RO on Alec Baldwin's podcast. I learned more about Robert Osborne in this 30 minute interview than almost 20 years of watching him on TCM. http://www.wnyc.org/shows/heresthething/
  9. {font:Calibri}Levon Helm{font} {font:Calibri}(1940-2012){font} {font:Times New Roman} {font} {font:Calibri}I’m convinced that The Band were almost as big an influence on rock music as the Beatles or the Stones. The Band’s first album, MUSIC FROM BIG PINK, came out right in the middle of the psychedelic period of the late 60’s. And it’s not an understatement to say that every rock musician at the time was influenced by it. It was a watershed album that changed music.{font} {font:Times New Roman} {font} {font:Calibri}Everybody, and I mean EVERYB
  10. I met a girl who sang the blues . . .
  11. No one left alive in 1985. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCG-4vi7M1Y

  13. Geesh, from the title of your thread I thought Kevin Costner was gonna go around the country with other celebrities giving speeches!!! (ha ha)
  14. Actually, Baker, Newman & Sarandon were in a movie together: TWILIGHT (1998). But let's pretend they weren't. Susan Sarandon was in ATLANTIC CITY with Burt Lancaster Burt Lancaster was in FROM HERE TO ETERNITY with Jack Warden Jack Warden was in THE VERDICT with Paul Newman Next: Stan Laurel
  15. Yeah, casablanca, your song was most people's introduction to Chicago at the time. And Terry Kath's solo on it is one of the best guitar solos ever recorded in rock. Period. Funny you associating Chicago with your dad. I also associate Chicago with my dad but from the other end of the spectrum in a way. Cause he loved Chicago. The first memory of listening to music I have is when I was about five or something & dad listening to Chicago in the living room on his "hi-fi." In particular, this song is the first song I ever remember listening to. I coulda done a helluva lot
  16. He basically had an aversion to the Hollywood publicity machine, Tiki. He didn't like big crowds or giving interviews (you can tell he's even uncomfortable in this one) & as he puts it, would go & hide out at his ranch when he should've been promoting his latest movie or his career. He says something along the lines (and I'm paraphrasing) "If you're not willing to prostitue yourself for the almighty dollar then you're out. They kick you out." He looked good considering he's, what, 70ish? So I'm guessing (although I don't know) substance abuse didn't derail his career like it did s
  17. Great selection, mn. Not a lot of deadwood on those first few albums, was there?
  18. Any Timothy Bottoms fans out there? When I was a kid back in the 70's, my grandfather owned a movie theatre. Every Friday & Saturday night I would be babysat by him at the theatre while my parents were out partying. For some reason Timothy Bottoms' movies made a big impression on me. I remember seeing LAST PICTURE SHOW, PAPER CHASE, and LOVE AND PAIN AND THE WHOLE DAMN THING. This youtube clip is an informal Q & A he gave to an audience at a film festival last year who had just watched LAST PICTURE SHOW. He talks about Peter Bogdanovich, John Ford, Ben

  22. james, I agree with you 100% that there are just as many talented artists nowadays & that you have to go out & find them. Where we perhaps part company is if you don't agree with me that the music industry has changed for the worse. It used to be you DIDN'T have to go out & find them. The most talented artists are who got the record deals, got radio play, appeared on tv, etc. There are many reasons for this, the main one being the fact that the music business is just one branch of a larger corporation. Which means that the suits who decide who to promote aren't music lovers (a
