Sorry, but just one more... I've never seen a bow shredded like this in just about 8 minutes:

There's no point in using it again, so he throws it to the audience. What a legend.

Having just watched Charlie Daniels' body returned to his hometown with hundreds of his fans lining the streets, let's give the man an encore. My other favorite song he'd perform (not his composition):

I saw him in 1981 in Philly, well before I'd ever think I'd live in Tennessee. This hits harder than I'd expect it to.

Charlie and Ennio Morricone on the same day?  :(

This is a sad day for Nashville. You can't go to the honkytonks without hearing a cover of this. He was amazing on fiddle.

He was my favorite composer. It is definitely the end of an era. Morricone’s scores were quite unique. Someone like him will likely not be heard from again.

I couldn't have said it better.

Here he conducts one of the best compositions ever, from one of cinema's greatest scenes ever. His Ecstasy of Gold.

RIP Ennio Morricone.  :'(

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the information. We'll look into this and do some troubleshooting to make sure this doesn't happen to more members.

Welcome to the board. Glad you were able to get registered and post, regardless of the trouble you experienced.

One of my favorite podcast hosts recently put current events as this: It's like if you took the Spanish Flu, intersect it with the Great Depression, add in post-King Assassination level riots, add some Vietnam (or Iraq) war, and heap on a big dose of climate change. He forgot to mention the murder hornets. We've made it to June. Welcome to Level 6 of Jumangi.

We are living through historic times. It's tough to see our cities burning: Minneapolis, Washington, New York, Philly, Nashville, LA, Chicago, Atlanta, Portland, Louisville, and so many more. We've felt the hate growing for a decade now, and increasingly getting worse over the past few years. We've seen it on social media, and it's been hard and alarming to see such little ability to have discussions anymore without losing friendships just for having disagreements. In a nutshell, I'll just say there's too much hate in the world, and that breaks my heart. There's less faith and trust in our leaders, at every level of our government, and that's lead us here. And it's not looking like any of that is going to change any time soon.  Hope everyone here is holding up okay.

90! Wow! Happy Birthday, Clint!

Amazing the things he's seen in his lifetime. Also amazing is his remarkable contribution to the entertainment world that is still ongoing.

Thanks, Clint.

The dog I mentioned in the post above is still around--she'll be 16 in a couple weeks.

Wow! What kind of dog is she?

I adopted/inherited my dad's cat, "Baby". Don't know if I've shared him here before.

I agree with everything AKA said.

(It's super hard to discuss lack of education about COVID19 without going into anything political. I feel our news coverage/education and politics are very intertwined)

How are things these days in NYC?

Is everyone back to work? How does everyone feel about the reopenings?

I've got mixed feelings. I understand people need to get back to work. The $1200 stimulus check isn't enough to force people to stay at home and not work, when there isn't rent/mortgage or even utility forgiveness. People need to feed their families. It's much more dire if you have kids to feed and no income, than it is to go back to work. Still, other countries have done a better job than the U.S. so that everything is put on hold until it's completely safe to reopen (which IMO won't be the case until there's a vaccine). So I'm watching the numbers like everyone else, waiting to see if they spike or not again. Here in TN, we've partially reopened and numbers did shoot up about 50% more than they had been. Still, I think TN has done a pretty good job of social distancing and glad we shut things down when we did. How are things in everyone else's area?

NOTE: I do not want this to go into a political discussion, and I'm not blaming any one person, more it's a failure of our entire capitalist society that we're not set up to take care of our citizens when there's a situation like this, and people have to choose between being at risk at their jobs, or safe at home but without food, utilities, etc. This isn't one politician's fault, and it's not one political party's fault. So I hope we can have this conversation without rearing off into politics and a blame game.

I think if I saw Clint at the gas station, I probably wouldn’t take a photo, and certainly wouldn’t alert the media. ! It’s a bit invasive, I think. I’d probably just say hi instead.

I agree. It's super uncomfortable even looking at the pics. Poor Clint.

Welcome Speer! I think it says something about City Heat that this board has been around for more than 20 years, and this is the first member to use Clint's character's name from the film. Though, I do see we had a Lt. Speer sign up 14 years ago (and never posted). Glad to have you with us, Speer!

I think the main problem with Michael Richards is that he's not funny unless he's doing Kramer. With the awesome Seinfeld scripts and perfect cast chemistry to play off, he's really funny. I never found him more than slightly funny in anything else he's done. Combine that with that stand-up meltdown, he's best off retiring. People won't forgive racism. White people can't be funny when joking about race, especially in today's social media and cancel culture world.

I also can't stand rap. The only rap song that I've ever liked is "Gangsta's Paradise," and that's only because it has a very positive message.

That's my favorite rap song. I also like some early rap, like MC Hammer. But the hip hop/gangsta rap -- I can't tolerate it.

I'm sure there are dozens of bands that I don't get, but all I can think of right now is Air Supply.  ;D  It's late and I'm drawing a blank.

Now it
Ha, good guess! Roughly, "Here we go!" Only with a bit more emphasis on the "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night!" undertone.

Ahhhhh!  ;D
