I always though this song (the Marvin Gaye version) was overrated as FM radio won't stop playing it.

I can understand your fatigue but I must respectfully disagree. This album is a masterpiece from end to end.

Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 10:37pm Franco Twinkie:

That was an amazing story Matt. But I will say this, If the police scrutinized video of the cheap seats of any Dodger game they would surly turn up more that a few suspects with outstanding warrants.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 10:37pm still b/p:

Like that dancey El Chicano version, and Marvin's is a long, longtime top favorite track. Fantastically evocative and one of the songs that endures and holds up remarkably well and deserves its response and respect.

First time I saw a melodica, it was Tortoise w/ a long tube going into a synth when they went through their Morricone phase.... I've borrowed a couple before, a lot of fun to play. (and yes, I'm a Augustus Pablo fan).

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:06pm Funky16Corners:

@NGH - I bought my oldest son a melodica years ago. He always enjoyed it, and of all the instruments you could give to a five year old, it was at least pleasant to listen to
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:07pm Erica:

Whenever I hear "Let's Get it On", I think of that Reese's Easter commercial and the cat meme where the cat gets scared by a car horn.

The Marvin version I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

I don't remember that. i'll have to check Youtube
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:10pm coelacanth∅:

of course what's going on is a Great album and a major achievement... but -i don't think Marvin would've gone where he went if Stevie and Curtis and Isaac and Sly hadn't paved the way.
  Wed. 7/17/19 11:10pm Dean:

I saw Augustus Pablo live in west Los Angeles. One of the better shows ever.

I can't process "Michael McDonald" and "favorite singer." Even if, arguably, he's a singer, how can he possibly rise to favorite?

Pharoah Sanders! Outrageous!
  Wed. 7/17/19 11:17pm Dean:

Two or three or four years ago, my son would listen to a popular singer, Sam Smith, whom I dubbed "Mush Mouth," because he sounded like he was singing with a mouth full of mashed potatoes. My son got the epithet. Indeed, Smith is a mush mouth! His songs would show up on radio and my son would announce, "Dad, this is Mush Mouth."

Smith sounds very similar to McDonald in this regard. Neither understands that, as a singer, one needs to a-r-t-i-c-u-l-a-t-e now and then.

Despite the long Mickey saturation/exposure, I can't tell you what his character personality is supposed to be. Doesn't seem very distinct, the way Bugs and plenty of lesser stars are.

I pity the fool who messes with Mister T. (sorry couldn't resist).

hey does anyone here know how to set a macbook to never install or check for updates to "apps"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - Chump at Oxford features a young Peter Cushing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:42pm Matt from New Orleans:

That would be very stupid thing to do C
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

(never mind, just figured it out)
  Wed. 7/17/19 11:43pm Dean:

Sorry, had to look up Peter Cushing. I really don't like movies at all, so I know very little about the who and what of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

Matt, it wouldn't.

The other day a friend and I got to talking Top Cat, and had to look up the name of his buddy, Benny the Ball.

I'm an inveterate movie NUT. I DVR'd ten episode of a 1940 Flash Gordon serial and was watching it with my son.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

@C - I forget which one, but one of the actors from Sgt Bilko did the voice for his animated counterpart on Top Cat.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Weird. That is one that seems to be excluded on lots of collections. Laurel and Hardy are trying to sell Christmas trees in July, without much success, until they ring the door bell of James Finlayson....then all hell breaks loose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:46pm Matt from New Orleans:

We’ll agree to disagree on that one C. I hope you still manually check at a regular interval if you don’t want them automated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

Finlayson was hilarious. The origin of D'oh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

i can't say i'm familiar with sgt. bilko. (i've heard the name...)
  Wed. 7/17/19 11:47pm Dean:

That would have been Phil Silvers. I don't like movies, in part, because I saw so much goddamn tv as a kid and shortly realized how vacuous it was as a medium.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

@C - If you ever get the chance to see Bilko, it is one of the funniest shows ever made. Phil Silvers and an amazingly funny supporting cast
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:47pm coelacanth∅:

Matt, one would only want updates for "apps" if one uses "apps".
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah! Finlayson was the greatest agitated doofus in silent film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

i have to add it to my list Larry. earlier today a friend implored me to watch some muppets, which i've never done.

(i was kind of over tv by around 1970)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

@C - Go for the original Muppet show. Very funny and lots of cool guest stars
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:51pm still b/p:

In a review of Last Tango in Paris I read this evening, the writer had this lots wrongo line: "As Oliver Hardy would say, 'What a mess we’ve gotten ourselves into now.'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:51pm Funky16Corners:

I don't think Oliver was thinking about a butt full of margarine
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:53pm coelacanth∅:

Matt, my web browser (firefox) will let me know when an update is available.
...and on my last computer i never updated it since c. 2013 - avoiding all the complications of incompatability with that operating system.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:53pm still b/p:

Showing of Tango in the area attracting controversy because of the later revelations about that scene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:55pm coelacanth∅:

(i think it was butter)
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Which was what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

(...butt er)

Thanks Larry Enjoyed the Marvin covers

Gaye should be alive today.

Good show! Thanks, Larry!
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:59pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Larry.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 11:59pm still b/p:

Brando and Bertolucci hatched the scene idea without Schneider, didn't tell her until time for the shot. Bertolucci WANTED her to be discomfited. She felt stressed and humiliated, and powerless. The sex was simulated but she regarded it as an assault and appallingly unfair and ill-conceived. Watch the film and you're seeing a real and real uncomfortable thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 11:59pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Matt!

Another 2 hours gone too fast. See you all later!

@Dean - Yes he should
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/18/19 12:00am Funky16Corners:

Thanks Jeff, Franco, Erica, C, Dean, SBP!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/18/19 12:00am Funky16Corners:

@SBP - Yeah, basically a sexual assault
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/18/19 12:01am coelacanth∅:

- not the first time that's happened for the sake of a movie scene
