Babylon 5 was pretty corny -- mostly bad dialogue, acting, and production values (it gets a bit better by season 3 but it's never subtle), but Boxleitner was pretty solid, and it was very influential w/its serialized ongoing story, something pretty much never done before (by the mid-90s) in genre TV.

Is this version Rich's favorite? Or the original?
Avatar Mon. 4/10/17 11:30am Joe McG:

@Greg: Rich loves the Seals & Croft original. It's his favorite.
Avatar Mon. 4/10/17 11:30am βrian:

Gotta be this version, I'd think.

I actually listened to a bad Isley Brothers track yesterday.

I'm totally serious.

I wanna hear the Isleys do "Spirit in the Sky."

Avatar Mon. 4/10/17 11:39am Magda:

@greg Let me know if anyone else is going.
  Mon. 4/10/17 11:40am Dean:

I know from friends, though, that there were clubs in the 'hood where Sun Ra and the Arkestra would do shows.

Oh, Lucky 13. Well, there is a Lucky 13 bar on Alameda down by Oakland Int'l Airport. Right now at Solano/San Pablo there's a Subway (adjacent to Strictly Vinyl, a cool little record store), a coffee shop, a liquor store, and a Mexican restaurant with a defunct salsa nightclub.

Just north of the coffee shop is The Ivy Room, where last month Fred Frith made an appearance, and Scott Amendola hosted Wednesday nights.

Always wanted to be a tour guide.
Avatar Mon. 4/10/17 11:44am still b/p:

I remember a comic from my youth in which Odin and Thor lead the eager and vigorous Asgard army into battle against a force under a young, untested and nervous prince. When some geothermal venty volcanic holes or some damn thing on the battlefield start spewing and geysering flame, Odin orders a retreat. Thor asks in confusion why Odin didn't use his godly power to quell the pesky disturbance, and Odin says his decision was to allow some some portion of hope and spirit to remain for mere mortals, so they'll know that not even in a fight with gods is the outcome inevitable.
This must be the kind of thing that applies to a bad Isley Brothers track.

@Dean: you're already a tour guide.
