Bob Rafelson's "The King of Marvin Gardens" is the other gem from that period, with Nicholson, Bruce Dern, and the always-flawless Ellen Burstyn.
It's the ideal double bill w/"Atlantic City"

Hello, Mr. O' and gathered all! That first set was excellent sandwich-making music, esp. the Gerard Wilson tracks. Philo can expect a superior lunch today.

Yes, Bob (The Monkees) Rafelson, that Bob Rafelson

@Sem: Burt was most excellent, too. A scene that sticks in m mind is -- ohh, shoot, I see that Frank already co-opted the lemons bit. :)

Burt was stellar in the movie. Rafelson, hooked up with Jack, had a nice journey.

thanks kat330. And Philo will have a nice meal, as well.
morning, duke.

Nothing remarkable: Turkey, cheese, romaine, tomato, cuke and hummus on whole wheat (to be wry, sometimes I choose rye).

@P-90. Agreed.
@kat: ah, hummus. Staple around here, with rather a lot of garlic ( I grow about 300 head/year.)
Avatar Mon. 9/15/14 7:00am Philo Gristle:

Morning Frank & Gang!

P-90: Much as I like Rafelson's Marvin Gardens (and 5EP), and I may be in a minority on this, one my favorite flicks by him is "Mountains of the Moon." Great old-fashioned adventure.

@Sem: 300 /yr?? One a day keeps the doctor away. Bet you never get a cold no matter how polar vortexed you are. Oh, I should have noted the cheese is Swiss.

  Mon. 9/15/14 7:07am P-90:

Rafelson's most def an important director in that generation.
The thing about "Marvin Gardens" is that it was made 7-8 years before "Atlantic City", so while the latter movie shows the crumbling, squalid remains of the fabled resort as it was coming apart at the seams just prior to the casino era, "Marvin" contains quite a visual record of the faded but intact "old" AC just before it really went to shit
Avatar Mon. 9/15/14 7:08am Sem Chumbo:

@kat: some of it I trade for free range duck eggs and other country yummies. Fifty are set aside for the next year's crop, planted on Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. But eat garlic, daily.
Avatar Mon. 9/15/14 7:09am Philo Gristle:

I wish somebody would put out on decent dvd the flick with Frank's first music score, "The World's Greatest Sinner," even if I'm much more interested in it because of Timothy Carey as the rockabilly preacher God Hilliard...

Avatar Mon. 9/15/14 7:13am Sem Chumbo:

re Zappa, via wikithingy: "...The film features a score composed by a young, pre-Mothers of Invention Frank Zappa. At about the same time, Zappa appeared on The Steve Allen Show, playing a "bicycle concerto" by plucking spokes and blowing through the handlebars. In the interview portion of the program, Zappa talked briefly about scoring the soundtrack for the film, which he called "the worst film ever made," even though the general public wouldn't have the opportunity to see the film he was talking about for another 50 years."

@Sem: I don't believe I've ever had a duck egg. Very different flavor from a hen's egg?

Avatar Mon. 9/15/14 7:16am Sem Chumbo:

@kat: richer, and denser, I'd say. So much bigger than even *large* chicken eggs, you have to adjust recipes for the amount of white (thus, water). Rarely use anything else here.

  Mon. 9/15/14 7:43am P-90:

The story of Flicker and Barney Miller is very well-known in Hollywood. He was involved in dreaming up the characters and writing the pilot; after that he has no formal role in producing the show. But the show became a hit, and because he was a "creator" of the show, he wound up with a huge payout that went on for years and years. His story is given as an object lesson for writers in how important it is to get one's self into the "creator" of a series position, that's where the big money is. Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld each made hundreds of millions from their "creator credit" on their show
Avatar Mon. 9/15/14 7:46am fxo:

Flicker (I think) also started Second City.

It's appeared on a few fxo playlists in the past months, and I always enjoy that "Lese Majesty" LP title. First time I saw it here was just days after I wrote lyrics using that very term and thought it was quite a synch.

Do you think anyone will actually pay a million dollars for a primo parking space in Manhattan? It surely would be cheaper to use a door-to-door limo service. I can't imagine who'd do it except someone expecting to capitalize on it by selling out "shares" to the space to others. Like The Donald.

Kat, on my second date with Missus Parq, we were seated at a windowside table, and we noticed the parking space outside the window was empty. We avidly discussed going out and holding it, co-oping it and making a killing. Ahead of our time, as is too often the case.

Wow, a bunch of greatness while I was otherwise engaged!

Thought the beginning of this was like the "Danger Man" theme.
Loved the Nordine. Think instead of "women are revered" from last week, though, he actually meant "women are reviled." Current news shines a light on that.
