  1. Well, Taylor moans that southern California makes him feel blue. Seems to me that his feelings for The Golden State aren't . . . golden.
  2. Had to sing it . . .?! What kind of sick, twisted, perverted, cruel, evil fiend would force a child to sing Wind Beneath My Wings?! There oughtta be a law!
  3. "Following its May [1967] release, the single made a fairly strong showing in the U.K., where it peaked at No. 6. Over in the U.S., The Wind Cries Mary went out as the B-side to Purple Haze and didn’t chart at all." -- Why Jimi Hendrix Was Glad ‘The Wind Cries Mary’ Didn’t Become a Bigger Hit Utterly amazing and unbelievable to me that a solid-gold 45 offering Purple Haze and The Wind Cries Mary (both A sides, IMO) "didn't chart at all" in the U.S. Thank you, SweetSue!
  4. . . . and that is a problem . . . why? I, for one, prefer discussion forums without moderators -- or, at the very least, moderators with an extremely light touch*. I hate nannies, hall monitors, police, and overlords! If a "fight" breaks out between discussion participants, other participants are not obligated to join in. If they are psychologically mature, they can choose to simply and easily ignore a kerfuffle -- i.e., "stay out of it" -- instead of joining in or -- worse! -- childishly tattling to "Daddy" or "Mommy" because they are upset (Make it s-t-o-p!!!). If there's anything
  5. How the devil could I forget Cast Your Fate to the Wind? Benson's cover is smoove, in the groove, no problem to approve -- a real solid sender. Here's the classic by Vince Guaraldi:
  6. Aritosthenes nailed it: What's "classic" is strictly in the mind of the beholder.
  7. Moving right along, here's another personal fave with an appealing melody and disposable lyrics. Sweet Baby James warbles "Southern California, that's as blue as a boy can be," later moaning, "I need your golden-gated city just like a hole in the head." The Golden Gated City -- San Francisco -- is in northern California. To paraphrase that Right Honorable Confederate Poet Lynyrd Skynyrd, Well I hope James Taylor will remember A southern man don't need him around anyhow
  8. Here's another tune in which strictly the music grabs me. The lyrics, OTOH, don't resonate with me, an atheist.
  9. The sad, slow death of TCM . . . . . . is ridiculously and presumptuously anticipated, not to mention deplorably and tiresomely wished by whiny, cranky, crochety old fogies on The TCM Message Boards. I'm certain that there must be some psychological study that would explain why some folks are resistant, and unwilling, to . . . at least, accept, if not embrace, change . . . which is inevitable. Is it biological . . . neurological -- some sort of chemical reaction inside the brain or the gut -- that causes actual physical pain when something NEW is encountered . . . "TURN DO
  10. First, thank you, LuckyDan, for mentioning The Seven Minutes, which I just watched on YouTube (a gorgeous presentation) and really dug! I read that Russ Meyer himself regarded The Seven Minutes as "boring and tedious." Compared to the "skin flicks" that are his legacy, perhaps. But taken on its own merits, I respectfully disagree with Meyer. I found his adaptation of Irving Wallace's best-seller-"potboiler" immensely entertaining and extremely thought-provoking. Talky courtroom scenes can be the "kiss of death" in a movie, inducing ennui in the viewer, causing him/her to tune out, dr
  11. Well, based on a few pix from The Seven Minutes (on YouTube!), it appears that it does have some Russ Meyer trademarks.
