Re: Recently viewed films

"Loving Vincent" is a film totally done with oil paintings. The look of the film is spectacular. It's as if Van Gogh painted the whole film: the colors were vibrant. The acting, directing, and story of the film were good. The story takes place a year after Vincent's death and a friend of h...

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers - Pittsburgh, Heinz Hall- June 13 2017

If Elvis stays in Pittsburgh for the night he can go to the Pittsburgh Penguins parade on Wednesday. Last year they had close to 400,000 people at the parade. On the other side of town tonight, Hall and Oates are playing with Tears For Fears. Both shows start at 7, but if Tears go on first Hall coul...

Re: Recently viewed films

Saw a nice little film from the UK called Their Finest starring Gemma Atherton and Bill Nighy. It was a bit slow at times, but all in all it worked. Bill Nighy's character was pithy.

Dukes of Stratoshear mention on sit-com

A very funny sit-com on ABC is 'Speechless'. It is about a family with a special needs child. In one episode the father tricks a friend of his to organize his record collection. The guy completes the task and tells the father, "I took the liberty of including The Dukes of Stratoshear with XTC.&...

Paddy McAloon & Jimmy Webb

I'm a fan of Jimmy Webb. He's written some wonderful music and 'Highwayman' is one of his best. I knew many people have covered it, but an unexpected artist came up when I brought it up on YouTube.

Free downloads from SXSW

The Austin 100 is only available until the end of the month. Some tracks are good; some not so good.

Re: New Gig Thread

Saw the virtuoso guitarist Albert Lee. I was not aware of him until a year ago, but I'm glad I'm aware of him now. His fingers just flew over the fretboard. He played some Ray Charles, Gram Parsons, Everly Brothers (he was in their band) and some other classic stuff. I checked Youtube on him and up ...

Re: Recently viewed films

A Man Called Ove is a nice piece of film. It is a subtitled Swedish film. It is the old story about an curmudgeon and the new Pakistani neighbors that have just moved in. The old man repeatedly tries to kill himself to be with his wife that recently died. Of course, the family has an uplifting effe...

Re: Recently viewed films

Saw the very good movie Denial. Spectacular acting by Tim Spall, Tom Wikerson, Rachael Weisz, and Sherlock's Andrew Scott. I can't say that the movie is GREAT, but it does call for a recommendation to see. Interesting to learn about the British legal system.

Shadow & Jimmy

As I gave a re-listen to the Rhino issue of King of America I finally read the liner notes. The last paragraph refered to a tune written by Elvis and David Was. The song found it's way on the Was (Not Was) album, What Up, Dog? which I had. It must be twenty years since I put on that cd and so I had ...

Kojack Variety 2

Will there be one? Be great if there was one.

I had my iPad on shuffle and the song "I Threw It All Away" came on by Elvis. Next was 'I Threw It All Away" by Ramblin' Jack Elliot.
