What are you watching?

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

... I watched The Last Waltz (again) a couple of weeks ago.
Still one of the best 44 years later (42 for the Scorsese movie).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Waltz
one of? It's without a doubt the best ever music movie video ever
Idk, I might agree with this list that Woodstock (1970) is #1.
The 50 Best Music Documentaries of All Time

It puts The Last Waltz (1978) at #11. Too low, IMO.

Other great ones I've seen, without my trying to rank them:
3. Stop Making Sense (1984)
6. Gimme Shelter (1970)
39. Jimi Hendrix (1973)
40. Buena Vista Social Club (1999) - I'd go higher than #40.
Monterey Pop (1968) - not listed.

I'm embarrassed how many I've not seen.

If we expand beyond documentaries to "best ever music movie video," I would highly rank:
The Wall (1979)
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
Purple Rain (1984)
Tommy (1975)
The Point! (1971)

Other folks? I know that I'm missing some good ones.
Rocky Horror for sure.


all are good. I just really like The Last Waltz.

Check your TVs during the day.

Likely elsewhere, too.

"Bride of Frankenstein" with Boris Karloff is on Svengoolie tonight at 8. Fine old horror movie from the 1930's.

Disaster Artist is big time funny.

After reading the story, I wanted to see The Room first, but it is only available on DVD.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Room

"Wiseau's 2003 film The Room, widely considered one of the worst films ever made. The Disaster Artist stars brothers James and Dave Franco as Wiseau and Sestero"

7 seconds has established a new world record for the most plot holes and a total lack of appropriate response by everyone.

Starts out okay, guy on phone runs over kid on bike, after that nothing happens that actual people would do, but I'm stupidly still watching and up to episode 8.

I guess it now a game to see if anything will happen that humans would do.

Or could be that Jersey City people just do everything wrong.

What about it Whack?



Edit: in spite of a the overwhelming evidence (that mostly was never looked at), all the bad guys got off


Bad, bad, bad show and I watched

America Before Columbus
National Geographic Channel

Scientific evidence shows that when Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living in the New World. Over the next 100 years, entire civilizations were wiped out when ships came over with plants, animals and disease.

Ah, Christ on a crutch. I've been watching so many old western tv shows (Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Wagon Train, Rawhide, The Rifleman) that I'm going stir crazy and started thinking that it would be cool if horses' legs were only about half as long as they are. That way, the cowboys and other horse riders would more resemble a biker on a chopper with their legs more out in front of them since they'd drag the ground the old way. Plus, horses would run like those little sandpiper birds.....super fast legwork, almost invisible to the naked eye. It would have changed the entire character of the old west.

But how would you be able to tell which ones have their hats on backwards like respectable bikers?

These days it would just attract a horde of riders on swift and agile Japanese horses that could run rings around your attenuated American breeds.

It is with some embarrassment that I must confess I've been on YouTube the past few days watching episodes of "Dobie Gillis".

I feel.... shame....
