Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm brainiac:

@spodiodi: Thank you for the tribute. I am touched.

Thanks David! If someone told me twenty years ago that I would look forward to hearing "Mr Giant Man" I would have been entirely incredulous. So Deborah, I understand and sympathize

@deborah - Failure to sleep, so that would be perfectly logical.

There was some discussion over on Sheila B last week about Fabio and whether he has cats and what kind they would be

WOW thanks @spodiodi ! I will certainly NOT go on record as saying you should EVER finish that movie haha but it has its moments

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Krull Sagan:

@Handy Nice, good choice! Wish I had seen it at a drive-in like @spodiodi, but first time for me was cowering behind my neighbor's couch cuz the monster scared me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Fabio:

@Krull: I don't have cats -- I am allergic to them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Fabio:

also, no poodles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Carmichael:

Damn ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm spodiodi (70 K9 MAN):

poodles are usually hypoallergenic! worth consideration. i too suffer from cat allergies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Krull Sagan:

Oh ok, so Fab has creepy HAIRLESS hypoallergenic cats just like I thought
  3:18pm David in London:

I remember seeing Krull at the local flea pit when it came out. Any film with Freddie Jones in must be seen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm brainiac:

@Fabio: Have you considered adopting something to stroke in your lair?
Avatar 3:18pm Heidee:

What is it about stockings anyway?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm spodiodi (70 K9 MAN):

how's the air today, chresti?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Krull Sagan:

Amazing- other folks out there last week said the cats would be a white Blofeld job, hairless, or poodles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm brainiac:

@Heidee: They go with wicked knickers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm chresti:

spodi, it's moderate, which means it's okay for healthy people, pretty warm though. How is it in SF?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm mariano:

Hey Fabio, Crew, fabiolous people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm spodiodi (70 K9 MAN):

chresti, nice. as was yesterday (ladiodi said the AQI was in the 30s today)

Cline is sticking weirdly close to the vocal melody in Blondie's "heart of glass" here...

Surprised to see this is Nels. Pleasantly

Hi mariano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm brainiac:

Ha! Good catch, Rev. Turnip!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm chresti:

I heard that, Rev T.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Ike:

Yes, Fabio definitely needs one of those evil-looking hypoallergenic cats to stroke while sitting in his lair and plotting the downfall of civilization. I think former FMU talk show host Dorian has one like that. Get her to hook you up with an evil hairless albino kitten, Fabs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, Mariano.
  3:32pm wfmu listener phillip:

good evening @Fabio
you always brighten up my mood.

Weather, what is this, Wake-n-Bake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm mariano:

Heya brainiac, spodi, chresti, Handy, all!

David: I saw Krull when it came out. Then when I was in London with my grandparents in '84 we went to a play called "Run for Your Wife," really awful but it had Bernard Bresslaw in it, so no regrets.
  3:33pm David in London:

Hi Mariano.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm WillCrete:

Totally was hearing that Heart of Glass melody too in the Jon Collin piece. Really nice ... as was that overlay of the Cline/ Westerhus pieces -
  3:35pm David in London:

Mariano, for an unexpected mention of the great Bernard B, you win Groover of the Day award!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm mariano:

Things are fine in the southeast where NOLA is, Fabio, thanks. Lots of rain but nothing uncommon for this time of year. The southwest really got it, the area around Lake Charles. It's weakened to a category 2 thankfully and is making its way to Shreveport where it's expected to be cat 1.

David: Awww, bless you, squire!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm PaulRobeson1920:

Aloha spodi man
Avatar 3:38pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

AH, i may have referenced the wrong title with that Blondie diagnosis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Krull Sagan:

@Mariano Did you like it in the theater? (I see all y'all on the comments here all the time but I so rarely get to check in live so it's awesome to be gabbin' with Strength folks!) Is anyone out there in the path of these bummer storms?
Avatar 3:38pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Also: there are no hypo-allergenic cats. No cat is to be trusted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm PaulRobeson1920:

I spent my last 75 dollar bill on fluff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm G:

Hmm, apparently you are using your show page photo to get Courtney going...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm chresti:

It's dried cat saliva that people are allergic to, I heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Krull Sagan:

@chresti Ah so that's it! I gotta stop putting that stuff in my smoothies
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm chresti:

Haha
Avatar 3:41pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

That's my understanding as well, chresti -- I'm quite sure it's wise to NOT snort cat spit.
Avatar 3:41pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

no cats, no spit dust. That's SCIENCE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm mariano:

Krull: Yeah, I thought it was great, but of course I was 14 and in the full flush of my D&D nerd-dom, don't know what I'd think now. Great cast though, Alun Armstrong, the aforementioned Jones and Bresslaw, etc. Should give it a cringe-watch for old time's sake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Handy Haversack:

I saw Krull in the theater -- a birthday party for a friend. That was a VERY excited group of kids.

I also wrote up the powers of a kind of krull for the game I play. Made of severed witch fingers. Lodges in the wound and digs and digs until the victim dies and then "flops obscenely" back to its owner.

Those storms are still supposed to hit NYC around 6, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Krull Sagan:

Also Liams Neesons!

NOLA report:

Marco was a super bust. I had to do several hours of yardwork and garden stuff, bring in chairs, etc., on Sunday, as prep. Then Monday and Tuesday it was sunny and dry all day. My garbage piled up because they had cancelled Monday pickup in my area. Marco just kind of dissipated at the last minute. It happens. That's why so many people don't evac for the real "big one" -- so many false alarms over the years. We (Mary and I) were ready to go one of several NO hotels she knows from experience have generators, kitchenette, and wifi. But didn't need to. Both of us need electricity and internet to work online during the day. During Katrina almost exactly 15 years ago she and family went back for a month or more to her family home in Lafayette 125 miles west of here.

Laura was bigger. Was just there in Lake Charles where it hit (50 miles east of the Texas border) three weeks ago, about 200 miles east of here. Had lunch with someone Mary knows from the Governors Program (gifted kids program that she and he attended in the early 70s). We were driving toward Galveston (about 350 miles west of NO) along I-10, three weekends ago, which they closed a lot of during the storm. (We spent two weeks in Galveston, learned a lot about its similarities with NO, and all the hurricanes there, esp. 1900.) But Marco didn't do as much damage as forecast. Mary's childhood friend and wife had decamped to their place in Baton Rouge yesterday, just in case. It's barely showered here in NO this morning.

Two near misses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm mariano:

Krull: Oh yeah, Liam Neeson, that's right. Regarding the storm, @Jason in Houston is/was more directly in the path.

Our thing here in the Sonoran Desert is fire spillover from California and we haven't had rain in one thousand months so I am out of the loop re. the ol' stomping grounds of the Northeast and NOLA; hope all are safe and prepared & stoked on Failure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm mariano:

Handy: that was a great time for schlock fantasy flicks wasn't it? I remember seeing "The Sword and the Sorcerer" for someone's birthday when I was around 13. There was also "Ator" and "Beastmaster" and of course the "Conan" flicks and "Red Sonja."
  3:49pm Miss G:

Hi @PaulRobeson1920. Please say more.
Avatar 3:49pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

ah, I recall fire season (spent most of the '90s in tucson); certainly don't recall such a huge thing next door as all that.

but the tiny lightning-strike fires on the catalinas were groovy; glowing circles in the night...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Krull Sagan:

How's about "Legend"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm spodiodi:

Legend. the only Tom Cruise movie worth watching
Avatar 3:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I found Vanilla Sky worthwhile - not knowing the Spanish original I'm guessing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm brainiac:

All those movies were in love with blue and orange/yellow gels.
You might add Excalibur to the list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm spodiodi:

  3:52pm David in London:

He was perfect in Eyes Wide Shut, too. Weirdly blank and off key.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Krull Sagan:

@Rev Turnip, beautiful; we had nearby fires a month ago and to watch them glow was really somethin....[rolls eyes at own inane description]
Avatar 3:52pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

heh! That final battle scene in Excalibur was absurd and perfect. Made it more like opera staging..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Handy Haversack:

I think I had my erotic awakening during Beastmaster, honestly. It's still pretty good!

And Legend! Yeah! A reminder that Ridley Scott made only 2.5 good movies, and Legend is the .5. But pretty good.

Far inferior to Lady Hawke, though. Rutger Hauer should have been in all of those movies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm spodiodi:

my favorite critic feels the same way i do about Tom Cruise www.google.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm spodiodi:

Lady Hawke ftw
Avatar 3:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Minority Report was worth it - he didn't bother me but I should think any number of people could've done it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Krull Sagan:

Ridley Scott did Legend?! How did i miss that...Love the Hauer, and is it totally out of place to bring up "Willow" which I think holds up better than almost all others of its ilk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm mariano:

Well, I wouldn't put "Excalibur" and "Legend" in the schlock category though. "Ladyhawke" either. But yeah, wore those videos out too.

Krull: yep, and Deckard's unicorn dream comes from unused "Legend" footage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm brainiac:

"...for God's sake, someone cure Tom Cruise's leprosy."

Avatar 3:58pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I always assumed the opera-staging look of the Excalibur end was totally deliberate. At some point it just un-ironically stopped being in a believable world, visually... Lovely thing to watch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Krull Sagan:

Holy jeez....haven't seen Bakshi's tolkien in a long time, had a creepy read-along audio book of it when I was a tot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Handy Haversack:

Watched Willow again not too long ago. All it really suffers from is too much Ron Howard-ism. Kilmer is good in it!
  3:58pm wfmu listener phillip:

will someone please get Fabio an Air Conditioner. or at least a fan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Handy Haversack:

Bakshi still the only decent Tolkien production.

Avatar 4:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Bakshi's LotR wasn't all bad! But some of it was very bad indeed. The Rankin Bass Hobbit for TV was actually rather good - & I'm guessing what the read-along book actually was about ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm mariano:

RevTD: I've always found "Excalibur" really frustrating. Mainly the script: such a stellar ensemble cast of heavy-hitters from the stage, but it seemed like they were told to yell every line. Really love Nicol Williamson and Helen Mirren though, they owned those roles.

That's right, "Willow" too.
  4:01pm WM:

Excalibur was directed by John Boorman and Legend by Ridley Scott - both very talented directors, at least from a purely technical point of view.

Funny that the young Mordred is now a motorcycle celebrity.

I grew up watching "Excalibur" at a time when I was super into Arthurian legend, so of course I love it despite my quibbles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm brainiac:

Favorite line from Excalibur: "It is the doom of men that they forget."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Handy Haversack:

I remember thinking Kilmer was good in Thunderheart but also think it would be the cringiest rewatch of any we have mentioned.

Same, Mariano, anent Excalibur -- still have it on DVD. Did you ever play Pendragon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm PaulRobeson1920:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Ike:

Heresy, perhaps, but: Tolkien is just too long-winded. Those Peter Jackson LotR movies (first 3 only) are far superior because they ruthlessly slash all of the chaff in the books. A rare, rare case of movie(s) superior to the book(s), like The Godfather.

RRNov63, "Dune" etc is not exactly good literature, but it is like a fever dream. I read so many sequels to find "it" but of course "it" can't be explained. So, maybe skim novels 1 and 2. (The Lynch is not bad! Go into it with a. . .kindness.)

Never played Pendragon, Handy. When I was around 15 I started working on a Grail-quest campaign setting, kinda fizzled after a while though.

Glad you enjoyed it, Miss G, it was a happy accidental discovery of mine.

Oh, that's right, David - "Lancelot." And I was gonna mention this one to you, Handy, but keep forgetting: ever seen Rohmer's "Perceval le Gallois"? Really interesting highly stylized adaptation of Chrétien de Troyes' unfinished poem.

Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula K. LeGuinn the only thing I found worthy to share the Epic Fantasy genre with Tolkien - as she had enuff background & originality. Tolkien was a Physiologist & expert on ancient North Europe - & everyone else can just go home. Roger Zelazny's 'Chronicles of Amber' was kewl - but he's really one of the Post-LSD Sci-Fi people.

greetings, Fabio and Skeletons and Lovely Failures!
been listening/lurking -- sooooo enjoying :)
@ Miss G: Peter Greenaway is incredible, "A Zed and Two Noughts" is a favorite of mine (when it was released, i had at least one friend tell me how much the Zebra *lover* reminded them of me, which felt totally creepy AND complimentary) . . . have you even seen any of his short films? they are totally worth seeking out, taped some off the TV back in the 80s -- "28 Bathrooms," "Making A Splash" . . . i was working nights, PBS would screen these in the middle of the night in between their regular shows

@ Miss G. -- are you watching "Dead Ringers"???
  5:32pm wfmu listener phillip:

was in an awful mood. but hearing fabio brightened up my day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm mariano:

With Greenaway I'm a sucker for "Draughtsman's Contract," "Prospero's Books," and "Cook, Thief." Really love "The Falls" and "Vertical Features Remake" too.
  5:34pm Miss G:

slugluv1313 yes, I was moved to recor. . ."watch" "Dead Ringers" right when the show began. Thanks for mentioning the short films of Peter Greenaway, I will look for them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm WoodsOfNH:

I loved Prospero's Books, though I had no idea what the heck was going on.

  5:37pm Gnomon:

@mariano The Falls is one of my favorite films ever. And it makes a great filter for a date: if someone other than me stays awake for the whole thing I know they’re for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Krull Sagan:

@slugluv, @mariano, thanks for the Greenaway mentions; Cook Thief Wife Lover was my first, Pillow Book was ok, Prospero's Books was so dope for all its book art and calligraphy; @WoodsofNH, I know what you mean, and just re-read The Tempest which is worth doing and a cool read, magick and quasi-demons and stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm mariano:

WoodsOfNH: It's "The Tempest" except with Prospero voicing everyone's lines for the first two thirds or so. But I love it more for its visual qualities than as a Shakespeare adaptation. Unbelievable how he pulled that off on what must have been a pretty small art-film's budget.

Gnomon: just to have imagined that whole scenario with the VUE and birds, wow. I also like how it's modular, whenever I watch it I tend to go back to the same chapters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm WoodsOfNH:

@mariano Ah, that would explain it. I know next to nothing about Shakespeare (never resonated with me in any way)
  5:40pm Miss G:

Gnomon, mariano, thanks for saying "The Falls," if I can tonight I'll watch while gnawing on a wooden pencil. (and thanks to Glenn Branca, that will get me through the next hours.)

Thanks for the Glenn Branca. I was lucky to hear him live twice - once at St. Mark's Church in 1982 (released as Symphony #2) and much later (I think in 2010) at Le Poisson Rouge.
  5:42pm Gnomon:

I sadly don’t have a copy of The Falls anymore and can’t seem to find it online or I’d rewatch it tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Michael 98145:

Glad i saw Cook Thief Wife Lover in an actual theater
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm mariano:

Krull: "Cook, Thief" was the first one I saw as well. "Prospero's" second, I think.

Woods: "Tempest" is a great story, probably the one I'd recommend for anyone not into Shakespeare. It's set on a magic island ruled by a great wizard, full of magic, spirits, monsters. It's the template one way or another for all stories about mysterious islands. It's also the source of the name Miranda and a few common phrases like "brave new world."

@mariano I have a book that talks about all of the phrases in common use that came out of the Shakespeare world. Pretty amazing. Just never enjoyed reading it. Felt like work to me.

@mariano, fully agreed on the Billy Shakespeare; The Tempest is magickally delicious

Avatar 5:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Feel Cinema is capable of so much - @ least Greenaway dammit does something with it. Prospero's Books maybe an example of what I'm always saying about even Great Directors not having the sense of when to get a Writer - but does it matter in that case ... Theif Cook & the Other Thing hit me wrong time when I was expecting something pleasant - but damned if I don't remember it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Krys O.:

Shakespeare on every level from the sheer sound of it on up. Great BritCom on him - 'Upstart Crow' ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm mariano:

Woods: the best way I think is to watch the plays performed by a really good cast, they bring the words to life in a way that reading can't quite. I remember watching the Ian McKellen "Richard III" from '95 with a German friend of mine, and he said after that it was cool how they modernized the language so he could understand, and I was like No! That's how good the cast was!

Cronenberg too! "Dead Ringers" was SO gorgeous on "the big screen" and those opening credits!!! i STILL want to have reproductions made of all those old gynecological instruments :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm mariano:

slugluv: I so wish I'd caught "Prospero" on a big screen, but I've only seen "Cook, Thief" and "Pillowbook" that way. There's another one of his, especially brutal even by his standards called "The Baby of Mâcon." Brilliant but some hardcore violence too, it's a Jacobean revenge play.
  5:54pm Miss G:

RRNov63 yes, "Upstart Crow!" hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm mariano:

There's a British series from the 70s too called "Will Shakespeare" with Tim Curry as the man himself. I thought it was really good, need to find it again.
