  1. I just heard Dave Karger introduce "Kelly's Heroes" mentioning the character of "Private Kelly". There is no Private Kelly in this movie. Kelly was a Platoon Leader with rank of Lieutenant, who got a raw deal from Command, took blame that wasn't his, and and perhaps got busted down in rank. It's never clear in the movie what Kelly's current military rank is, just that he is assigned to the company or platoon that Big Joe (Telly Savalas) is the sergeant for. What is very clear is that Big Joe is the main and senior enlisted leadership figure in the company, yet Kelly still carries himself
  2. Obviously, you didn't get the point that I was replying to someone who didn't like that I was pointing out young folks don't know as much as they think they do (they are too engrossed in their phones), and get too much credit automatically just for being young. Please read the entire thread next time.
  3. Oh, yes, some of those folks back then DID play The Blues. Even Dusty and Billy and Frank (early ZZ Top) played some Blues originally. But I mean Led Zeppelin, Cream, Eric Clapton, and others I listened to back then, had heard the original Black Delta Bluesmen that John Mayall brought over to England in early to mid-60's. Their music was reborn over there, incorporated, reinterpreted into Rock form, and thus reinserted into the USA. It might've even been lost were it not for Mayall.

Just look at the sheer idiocy of the following of the ridiculous Kardashian family. All they really are, are "famous for being famous".
  5. To say that Julie London's version of "Cry Me a River" is better than Dinah Washington's is like foolishly saying the Cooper Mini is better than the Austin Mini, or that the 2003 version of "The Italian Job" is better than the original 1969 version. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the younger the beholder, the more foolish and unwarranted are the statements. Julie London's version is more dreamily, wistfully, and haltingly done, where Dinah's is gritty, forceful, gut-wrenching ... like a great Blueswoman's version is expected to be. London, while a great actress and performer in
