Nice version of Bowie's Man Who Sold the World on that ..

(I'm moving this conversation over here to the Bowie thread)


What's your take on the meaning of this song? There are so many possibilities.

Totally. I watched an interview with one of the producers of that Unplugged concert, and he said they were really nervous when they heard that definitive electric guitar starting out the song, because it breaks the rules to have the electric guitar, but he said they shouldn't have worried so much because the concert was magical, and absolutely perfect. They were also so concerned that the band wasn't playing their own hits, and was doing so many covers. Nirvana mentioned they were going to bring a musical guest to perform with them, and the producers were hoping it was going to be a big name band, but Nirvana brings The Meat Puppets. Which, is kinda funny because I'm not a fan of the Meat Puppets, but those few covers they did are some of my favorite songs in the world. "Oh Me" has been my earworm now for a few weeks.

It's definitely my favorite live concert CD. Sometimes I wonder if Nirvana would have such a lasting effect and be as loved as they are without that performance. It showed a different side of the band that the studio albums and other concerts don't show.

There's only one of me Matt :) :)

To be honest when we was kids there was only three tv channels (one virtually unwatchable) and only a very short time late afternoon allotted to children's tv so basically very little choice... Although of course I had best chair...

I don't really remember my younger sister having any real taste in tv but my Dad liked Star Trek which was cool... ( Tho I think some of the very short skirts might have had something to do with it ;) )

But I do remember the Sunday afternoon movie slot over here which is where I became addicted to movies, this is where I saw most of the Hollywood classics for the first time.. Westerns, war, drama etc..

Did you have Kung Fu Theater on Saturdays on your side of the pond? That was something we both enjoyed. Our favorite shows were the Adam West Batman series, Speed Racer (I'm going back to my youngest memories), Ultraman, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Adam 12. I remember in 1st or 2nd grade, we were asked to draw a picture of our favorite TV show -- everyone did the 9 boxes with the faces (Brady Bunch), but I did the cop car with the two cops. There's only one me, too!  ;D


But, Batman was far and away the highlight of my life back then. I can't remember watching TV with my parents, except that we were forced to watch Sonny and Cher with them every (I think it was) Friday night at 8 pm.  My brother and I each had these little kid-sized rocking chairs, and we sat front and center while mom and dad were on the sofa. They loved that show.

Oh this is for Vinyl... well in that case, it's been a very long time. I'll see if I can find "what was the last CD you bought" thread.

As for Wings Greatest, I probably still have that somewhere.

I opened my Nirvana Unplugged CD today and the disc is missing. I haven't seen it in years, so I assume it's gone forever. I just bought it again, along with the With The Lights Out box set



Hard to believe it's been nearly 25 years since we lost Kurt.

Have you seen "The Staircase" on Netflix, Gant? Although quite biased towards the defense and Michael Petersen, it's a pretty riveting program to watch.

I'll check this one out too!

Anyone watching the new Lost In Space?

I was never really a fan of the original, in fact I donít think I ever saw a complete episode back in the day.

Bad memories from childhood. When you have a big brother, and you're like... 6... and there's one TV, you don't wind up with much say about the programs you'll be watching. To this day I can't go anywhere near Lost in Space or Land of the Lost. I always hated them. And Mannix.

Here's an interesting video I saw a couple years ago focusing on one scene in Vertigo.


That was cool -- a mini film class. It's interesting how the blocking plays into the subconscious when you watch it, because non-film students wouldn't think about all that, and yet we still get the feelings that Hitchcock wanted to get across with the blocking.

Doug, how about joining us for some of the Hitchcock movies in our Movie Club? Shadow of a Doubt still hasn't been nominated. You don't have to participate in all of them, maybe just the ones that you haven't seen in a while.

I would add North by Northwest to the above. 8)

Got it!

Lots of great Hitch movies still unnominated. Anyone else want to join in?

The Lady Vanishes

Noted. I haven't seen that one in ages, and it will feel like a first viewing.

Here's what I think we've got so far:

The Schofield Kid:  SabotageThe 39 Steps
Matt:  Rebecca, Spellbound
AKA: Rear Window
Gant:  Strangers on a Train, Psycho
KC:  North by Northwest
Christopher: The Lady Vanishes

Anyone else?

I havenít seen ďPsycho.Ē On Imdb, they state itís partly a horror movie. Is that true? That doesnt seem to fit the plot description to me. I really hate horror movies though, so if its in that genre, I donít think Iíd like it. Iím definitely up for watching Rear Window.

Yeah, it technically can be considered horror, so can The Birds. But, they're not like horror films today. They are psychological dramas with horror aspects that I think helped spawn the horror films that we know today. I'm not sure, but it's possible Psycho could be considered the first slasher film. But don't let that scare you away (pun intended). It's too good a drama for one horror-type scene to keep you from watching one of the best acting performances in history, and some damn fine directing.

Any Hitchcock films are good -- the 60's and later aren't eligible for when we do classic films after Hitch.

AKA, so you haven't seen Psycho yet?  Put yourself down for Rear Window on the movie club schedule, and think about recommending Psycho. It's a movie everyone should see at least once.

Okay, if KC is joining us before the end of baseball season, then we can get started earlier! Let's see who else is in and the films they recommend, and I'll get a schedule up.

I'll recommend Rebecca and Spellbound, but want to make sure someone recommends Shadow of a Doubt because I want to see that one.  And Notorious is another favorite.

(But why not include the 1950s?)

The 50's feel so much more modern than films from the 30's and 40's. And then there's another big jump from the 50's to the 60's.  So, okay, when we do classics, we will go up to 1959. :)

I think a Hitchcock theme would be awesome. Reading through the Hitchcock thread, I see that Shadow of a Doubt was recommended to me, and KC said was perhaps Hitch's favorite of his films, and I still haven't watched it.

So, let's get together a list of everyone who's interested in participating, and if you "chime in", list one or two Hitch films you'd like to recommend for the schedule.

Okay, we'll be getting a schedule together and getting this started again soon. Should we do a Hitchcock theme, and everyone who is interested can nominate a Hitchcock film for the schedule? Or, should we just do classic films (pre-1950).
