  1. I like it! Has more life to it than cardboard, even if you can print out joke cardboard ones, know they had a few around in some games. And their reactions to a spectacular play or when it goes down to the last minute, buzzer beater or not. And after today's game, I should have just rewatched Monterey Pop. Just cut my losses early on. But I did swap over to TCM for Jammin' the Blues, top shelf jam session.
  2. The best kind of dinosaurs! The Monterey Pop of dinosaurs.
  3. Gotta catch that Raptors game, Monterey Pop has the audacity to be at the back half of it, where in the back half of Game 4, with 0.5 seconds to go, Lowry threw the ball inbound from one side to another for OG to catch and shoot the game winning 3-pointer.
  4. Fade to Black was from left-field, completely unexpected but not my thing. But loved the mini showings before it, Jimi Plays Monterey and Otis at Monterey. And that guy just painting Jimi at the start, I was wondering what it was and as soon as I saw how it was Jimi, I was blown away. Both of those, absolutely fire. Didn't catch all the concerts but saw The Song Remains the Same, one of the Elvis ones and the Decline of Western Civilization duos. Led Zep one was alright but the Decline movies were tops. I'll catch more of the concert stuff that's on tonight; Neil Young, Jammin' the Blues

  6. Friday, July 10 George O'Hanlon as Joe McDoakes mini marathon 7:45AM - 8:15AM, 10 AM-Noon I love his shorts, so this is a treat for me. Has an unrelated, similarly titled movie before it and in the middle of it.
  7. A lot of deliberation, changed a few from what I had before but I'm pretty happy with the list. Some letters I could have gone any which way for (B, G, M, P, R) but others (L, N) were no contest. Q and X, so few choices. Almost went with xXx, the radical James Bond starring Vin Diesel. Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) The Big Clock (1948) Captain Blood (1935) Dark Passage (1947) Expendables 2 (2012) A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966) The Great Escape (1963) Happy Gilmore (1996) In a Lonely Place (1950) John
  8. Making a list and narrowing down each letter to a few noms. Some letters like D or M have all the licks and others like J, let alone Q, have so little for me. Very few clear cut winners, but it's fun.
  9. I've seen a few of them before but I don't mind the rewatches, it's great stuff. Especially DOA, the Fisherman jazz session is top shelf.
  10. Feels like something I've seen on TCM years ago. And reminds me of another one, probably the one on two weeks from now but still stoked for it.
  11. I'm heavily biased but this is one of my favorite SOTMs TCM has done. Last Thursday was a smash hit for me, with The Little Giant (1933) becoming one of my new favorites. And another watch of Larceny Inc (1942) tonight, but instead of replacing Brother Orchid with a non-Edward G. Robinson movie, they could have put up any Eddy movie. Anything. I'll see if I can catch a quick nap before the last one of the early morning.
  12. I'll always remember Dust be my Destiny as the replacement for a Noir Alley pick in Canada. Glad they have Elevator to the Gallows for their "Jazz in Film" spotlight. Miles Davis was aces in it, set the mood perfectly. Friday June 19th, clearing my schedule as that is prime noir goodness. Always thought the Austrian Funny Games was older, and mistook the one TCM is showing for the remake.
  13. A Bout de Souffle (Breathless), TCM aired it yesterday, caught it by chance and I just fell in love with the soundtrack. Couldn't decide between the two pieces but the entire soundtrack is something wonderful.
  14. Friday, March 13 8:45AM - Larceny, Inc (1942), Edward G. Robinson as an ex-con that tries to go straight, with comedic results. Always loved this one.
