  1. Merry Christmas to all the bad kids Lenny & Squiggy - The Jolly Fat Man Stan Freberg - Nuttin’ For Christmas
  2. CN Tower, Toronto - Ontario The royal nut-case King Charles VI would certainly approve of all this glass. From Wiki - - The glass delusion is an external manifestation of a psychiatric disorder recorded in Europe mainly in the late Middle Ages (15th to 17th centuries).[1] People feared that they were made of glass “and therefore likely to shatter into pieces”. One famous early sufferer was King Charles VI of France who refused to allow people to touch him, and wore reinforced clothing to protect himself from accidental “shattering”. Regards Metairie Road
  3. I'm not entirely convinced that she was as horrible as her reputation. There are a lot of competing egos in the world of opera, it's all part of the fun. But, maybe I have a blind spot because I love her singing so much. I'm a Diva! (I'm good, and I know it), so get out of the way. Wonderful. Of course, one can push this 'Diva' bull$hit only so far before becoming an insufferable pain in the a$$. The trick is to know how far. ...still Michael Praetorius - Es ist ein Ros`entsprungen (Kathleen Battle) Shigeru Umebayashi - Lovers - Mei and Jin (Kathleen Battle) Best wi
  4. Nick Lowe - Marie Provost Based on the ficticious account in 'Hollywood Babylon'. Slim Gaillard - Jumpin' At the Record Shop Too many to mention. Mostly actors who also had a successful recording career: Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra etc. Kinks - Celluloid Heroes. Robin Jolley - Marshall’s Portable Music Machine Great song. Mentions Rudolph Valentino. Don McLean - Bronco Bill's Lament ..But the studio of course, Owned my saddle and my horse. But that six-gun on the wall belongs to me. Oh god I can't live a memory. Brilliant song about an old movie cowboy. I thi
  5. slaytonf The Stars My Destination Good choice. I'd nominate The Demolished Man as well. I don't think there's anyone in Hollywood who could do it right. Kubrick is dead and Ridley Scott lost his edge years ago. As for Victorian classics I'd say The Cloister And The Hearth by Charles Reade. I believe there was a silent version from sometime in the 1900's. but I've never seen it. Best wishes Metairie Road
  6. Considering how many quality TV programs the BBC has produced over the years, the question is this - Why is BBC America so bloody horrible?
  7. Anna Maria Louisa Italiano. What a lovely name. Why change it?
  8. I have no objections to hunting. If needs be I would kill to maintain my life and the lives of my loved ones. However, 'Trophy hunting' I find disgusting and offensive. There are several so-called hunters of my acquaintance, and I find they share some common characteristics. Firstly; a total lack of empathy for the feelings and pain of others (Humans or animals), and their need to impress, to gain some kind of approval - Beneath the surface they are actually very weak and afraid. I cannot stand to be near these people. Animals are neither good nor evil, only humans have that choice. An
  9. Back in the 1970's I was into progressive rock and 'Disco' was beneath my contempt. I finally 'grew up' and realized that this was good music. Loved the Isley Brothers, they had a string of great records in the 70's. Isley Brothers - Harvest for the World Best wishes Metairie Road
  10. Happens every time I drink Guinness; got to have my sweet ladies sing Irish ballads to me. Nanci Griffith & The Chieftains - Red Is The Rose https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvS8KkzKTjQ Loreena Mckennitt - As I Roved Out Judy Collins - Wild Mountain Thyme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdockGIFkck]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdockGIFkck Best wishes Metairie Road
  11. Ann Miller in that green and plaid dress in 'On The Town'. She looks fabulous. Regards
  12. The Cars That Ate Paris - Great title, lousy movie. 'The quality of a movie is inversely proportional to the pomposity of its title' would seem to be a good rule of thumb here.
  13. Oh dear, looks like someone got out of the wrong side of the bed this morning. Never mind. this'll cheer you up. Renee Fleming with her wonderful version of Korngold's 'Marietta's Lied' Enrique Iglesias - Bailando What a wonderful top 40 song (970 million hits on youtube), makes me feel young just watching it. Best wishes Metairie Road
  14. faceinthecrowd - Sounds like an interesting CD. I didn't know the Boss could play the cello. A new departure for him, he'll be doing opera next. DownGoesFrazier - 'A Girl Like You'. Great song. Edwyn does David Bowie almost as good as David Bowie. Best wishes Metairie Road
