guess i'll have to finally listen to the original Hotline Bling then...
Avatar 3:39pm Cecile:

the only thing I understood in your last comment, Scott, is Conlon Nancarrow.

Steve, I didn't make it through the original video, but the SNL parody was great.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm steve:

ok i watched 10 seconds of the video, muted. yup, dumb as wood. though i realize its the video James Turrell had to issue a statement denying involvement, which makes it all worth it.

I looked up nae nae, and got Ellen DeGeneres lip-synching to "Bitch Better Have My Money" which was totally worth it.
Avatar 3:58pm Cecile:

she also did the "Theme from Mahogany" from a cross-legged position on the floor. With really crazy eyes. It was pretty damn good.

Or...to this track.

  4:10pm Ike:

Oops Cecile, I wasn't able to respond to yr Flash-Arrow comment earlier. I saw last year's. Crossovers on TV usually don't work (e.g. Homicide-Law and Order, bleh) but those were fun.
Avatar 4:11pm Cecile:

They were fun ,weren't they?

Yeah, Law and Order didn't have Homicide's writers and you sure could tell.

Wow, that's the first Orbison song I've ever liked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

So does this mean all of the Travelling Wilburys have released anti-war songs?
--Dylan ("With God On Our Side"/"Masters of War")
--George ("Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)")
--Jeff L ("Boy Blue", Wiki says this is one)
--Petty (he's got to have at least one, anyone know of it?)

Hi Scott! happy almost new year.

Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly" is said to be his anti-war statement on Gulf War I. So there ya go!

Yes, thanks for directing this 90s DB cut to my/our attention!
  4:54pm Polyus:

could it be time for the music buying public to reevaluate DB's 90s output?

@Cecile, yep

  4:56pm Polyus:

I mean, people even decided Dylan's 80s output was cool.

Scott!!! Loving this song. Thank-ee

Stop playing such great music. I have to go into work.

Hey Mike East! Tanx alot
Avatar 5:33pm dale:

nice sounds here.

i ws watching fritz lang's metropolis on pbs back in the 70s and it had a score like this bianchi and i was blown away. about a year later i saw it was on again and settled in and the score was ragtime piano. they really were careless with public domain masterpieces back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Mike East:

Thurston Moore was recently in here playing with Yoko AND Yo La Tengo....unfortunately on my day off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Scott Williams:

I got to see Yoko w/ YLT as her backing band at Union Pool a year or so back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A very kewl unit does music Live for silent films is Club Foot Orchestra:
Avatar 5:37pm TDK60:

Scott, hiya, saw a similar Yoko band with YLT + in Central Park.
Avatar 5:37pm Marcel M:

Great show today Scott
Avatar 5:38pm Cecile:

TVBC & Paul Metzger also did some nice work for films.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Mike East:

@TDK60 - they rented our backline for that gig. My buddy got to be a tech for it and saw the show from side stage...said it was pretty great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...their Metropolis : www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: I know certain people compose scores for specific silent films, and many modern (1970s-after) composers have done versions for Metropolis. You prob saw a special airing backed with someone's special score for Metropolis. Then the next time they just played the standard "public domain" clitter-clack soundtrack since that's what comes with.
Avatar 5:41pm Cecile:

Didn't Metropolis also have a cheesy rock music soundtrack in the 80s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Mellotrons??! Oh fux yeah!!
Totally downloading this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Mike East:

@Cecile - Giorgio Moroder did one, and included a bunch of pop artists of the day. It was not as bad as I had been led to believe.
Avatar 5:42pm Chris from DC:

I would so love to have a mellotron.
Avatar 5:43pm Cecile:

that's the worst kind of praise. "Not as terrible as I had heard"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Linda Lee:

lovin the sounds today Scott! perfect for this early-dark evening. thank you!
Avatar 5:43pm dale:
