Jul/2018

Back in 2013, horror master Stephen King released the novel ‘Doctor Sleep‘, which was his sequel to ‘The Shining‘. It was only a matter of time before we got a movie adaptation of it. So here we are in 2018 and it looks like Warner Bros. is developing the project at full steam ahead. Mike Flanagan has been set to write and direct the film. Flanagan is a horror filmmaker himself, where he got his start with the films ‘Oculus‘ and ‘Hush‘.

A New Film Festival Will Open at ‘The Shining’ Hotel!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 31st, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

overlook2

Good news, everyone. There is a new horror genre film festival looking to scare people next year, which will be called ‘The Overlook Film Festival‘ and will start on April 27th at Oregon’s Timberline Lodge, which was used (exterior shots) for Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’. Festival heads Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim announced the event this Halloween and are planning on bringing classic films, new films, experimental events, and interactive fun to the Timberline Hotel. This first year will be a four day event and looks to be quite fun as it is being put on by a ton of people from the Alamo Drafthouse and ‘Fantastic Fest‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the_chickening_still_5__large

I was fortunate enough to have seen this at last year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin and was completely amazed. I’m not sure if amazed is the right word, but I was something and it has changed me forever. There is really no explanation for ‘The Chickening‘ other than that Toronto-based filmmakers Nick DenBoer and Davy Force took Stanley Kubrick’sThe Shining‘ and made it into something out of an acid trip nightmare with tons of chickens. Insane Clown Posse would be proud. You’ve never seen anything like this before, but you won’t be able to look away, and if you’re like me, you’ll watch it a million times.

Hi, Bryan Here…

This is just so cool.  Artist Kyle Lambert did a paint mash-up of Toy Story and The Shining on his iPad.  It’s just too cool.  Here’s what he said:  “Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.”

Hi Bryan Here….

Now most of you know I am a HUGE fan of Kubrick’ work.  Anything related to the director, I want to read, watch, and cherish.  There was a documentary that premiered at Sundance recently entitled ‘Room 237’.  It is a documentary on the Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ movie.  Not the one made by his daughter that is shown on the DVD, but rather a different type of documentary that explores the insane conspiracy theories and subtext of the “real meaning” of ‘The Shining’.

Hi Bryan Here….

“At an awards ceremony at George Mason University last Friday, Stephen King regaled audiences with a chapter from Doctor Sleep, his upcoming novel about a grown-up Danny Torrance from ‘The Shining.  In the book, Danny is a hospice worker who uses his powers to help ill patients to pass away without pain. Unfortunately, he runs afoul of a gang of wandering psychic vampires who feed on people’s energy.”

4K UHD Review: ‘Ready Player One’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2018

THE FILM


One of the most anticipated movies of the year is finally upon us with Steven Spielberg’s return to the fantasy/sci-fi realm in ‘Ready Player One‘, which is based on the pop-culture fandom novel from 2011 of the same name by author Ernest Cline. The novel was a best-seller and was chock-full of the 1980s and 1990s references in the form of video games, movies, TV shows, and more. in fact, every page of the book was like reading a nostalgic diary of your past childhood favorite things. ‘Ready Player One‘ takes places a few decades into the future where a simulated and very realistic virtual reality game is the main form of entertainment where people put on goggles and can be anyone or anything they want.

Film Review: ‘Hereditary’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2018

Being a huge fan of the horror genre, you always hope for something that will stick with you long after you see it, and that will cause you to sleep with the lights on and truly terrify you. More often than not, the horror movies we digest can be easily forgotten in a matter of minutes after viewing with some small laughs and eye rolls, even though we might have a cheap scare, forcing us to jump. Then there are times when we get a seriously horrifying movie that we just can’t shake off. A horror film that scares us to our core and reminds us why we love the horror genre and continues to pave the way in original and creative ways for all things scary. It doesn’t happen as often as it should these days, but we can all rejoice today, because the film ‘Hereditary‘ is here to scare the hell out of us in the best ways possible.

Dan Moran’s ‘Ready Player One’ Review!

Film Review: mother!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It’s been proven over the last two decades that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky makes movies his own way. He doesn’t bow down to Hollywood execs and never makes movies for the masses. Most people would fail with this tactic, but with Aronofsky, he wins awards and is met with critical acclaim. With films like Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and The Wrestler (I won’t mention Noah) – you can tell that Aronofsky doesn’t make tightly wrapped, happy movies with pretty little bows on them. I commend him for this, because he’s doing something that nobody else is doing.

Blu-ray Review: ‘You’ll Never Get Rich’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 2nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

YoullNeverGetRich_BD_HighRes__69755.1491195814.1280.1280

THE FILM

In 1941, Columbia Pictures wanted to make a film that that was current, fun, and had A-List stars. Being the time of World War II and having the iconic actor/dancer Fred Astaire on board, it would seem like the studio had a big hit on their hands with You’ll Never Get Rich, which is a musical comedy that takes place during the war. Even though it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song, this film doesn’t seem to be thought out or well executed on any level.

Film Review: ‘Devil in the Dark’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 4.41.35 PM

Note to self. Why would anyone go camping in the woods anymore? With films like ‘The Blair Witch‘, ‘The Evil Dead‘, ‘The Cabin in the Woods‘, and yes – even ‘Jurassic Park‘ – why would anyone want to subject themselves to monsters, demons, dinosaurs, or a witch? It seems fairly obvious to stay out of the woods for an extended period of time. Just stick to city parks, right? In ‘Devil in the Dark‘, we follow two brothers head out into the British Columbia wilderness for a long hunting trip. Vancouver is a nice city, full of everything you need. Why would anyone venture out into the vast and mysterious wilderness of B.C., even when you’ve had experience with supernatural phenomenons before? This does not stop brothers Clint (Dan Payne) and Adam (Robin Dunne) from taking that trek into the woods.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Gate’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 21st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 2.17.28 PM

THE FILM

The 1980s were very good to us horror buffs in the form of films. We were introduced to Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Re-Animator, John Carpenter’sThe Thing‘, ‘The Shining‘, ‘Child’s Play‘, ‘The Lost Boys‘ and the wonderful world of ‘Evil Dead‘ to name just a few. I guess you could say that the 80’s gave us some of the very BEST horror films ever made. One of the 80’s horror films that is just as good and as fun as the above mentioned movies, but rarely gets a mention is the 1986 film ‘The Gate‘, directed by Tibor Takacs.

Favorite Films of 2016!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Infiltrator’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’ve seen quite a few movies and even TV shows that cover the Pablo Escobar story and his drug cartel over the years. Some have been great where others missed the mark. Here with ‘The Infiltrator‘, you never really see Pablo Escobar, but only in passing as the story follows real-life US agent Robert Mazur or as his undercover name Bob Musella, played by Bryan Cranston, who is no stranger to the drug business (Breaking Bad). Robert Mazur went deep undercover to unlock and take down Pablo Escobar’s drug business, along with his right hand men.

Corpus Christi, Texas. Latin for the Body of Christ. What a weird place for the first sighting of The Demon King on WWE TV. And yet, there he was.

That brings us to his latest masterpiece of cinema, ‘Crimson Peak‘.

Film Review: ‘The Witch’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 17th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

You’ll remember the name Robert Eggers from here on after. Eggers is a first time director who has been the talk of town since last year when he premiered his little horror film ‘The Witch‘ at Sundance. His Kubrickian eye and style for telling a story is as fresh and original as it is scary and authentic. ‘The Witch‘ won’t make you jump back in your seat or provide the cheap silly scares that you see in most modern day horror movies. Hell, it doesn’t even have a mild jog pacing. Instead, Eggers slowly builds the tension and suspense so much over the course of 90 minutes with horrifying images and characters, that you’ll want to cover your eyes in this story of witchcraft set in Puritan New England more than 400 years ago.

Swedish director Ruben Ostlund’s bizarre film ‘Force Majeure‘ will no doubt start conversations with your friends and loved ones about how good people can or can’t be when the shit hits the fan. This might be one of the strangest films I’ve seen in a long time, but it also might be brilliant as well. I haven’t seen this organic of a performance in years as Ostlund intimately shows his characters come face to face with their own ugly demons. We meet a picture perfect family consisting of Ebba (Lisa Loven Kongsli) and her husband Tomas (Johannes Kuhnke), and their two pre-teen kids Harry (Vincent Wettergren) and Vera (Clara Wettergren) as they are posing for pictures on top of a ski slope of a luxurious ski resort.

Nicolas Winding Refn is one of my favorite directors. The Danish born director has quite the resume. He is mostly known for making the hit film ‘Drive‘ with Ryan Gosling, but has also made ‘Valhalla Rising‘, ‘Bronson‘, and the recent ‘Only God Forgives‘, which also s tarred Gosling. Refn is also a big advocate for the cult horror film genre. He can be seen on numerous Blu-ray extras, discussing his love for that particular brand of cinema. Not only is he a great director, but he is also a big fan of movies.

But not a lot of people know that Denis and Gyllenhaal filmed a movie right before they started ‘Prisoners‘, but has not been released until now. That film is called ‘Enemy‘, and it completely hypnotized me for the entire 90 minutes.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Only-God-Forgives-Red-Band-Trailer-You-Wanna-Fight

I’ll be the first to admit that Nicolas Winding Refn’s movie ‘Drive‘, starring Ryan Gosling was one of my favorite films of that year. It was original, fresh, had a killer soundtrack, and had a wonderful and colorful cast of characters. I own the Blu-ray, soundtrack, and even stickers from the movie. Needless to say, when I heard that Refn was making another film in the same vein called ‘Only God Forgives‘, I was excited with pure joy and couldn’t wait to see it. Not only was it going to star Ryan Gosling and amp up the violence and suspenseful situations to eleven, but it was going to take place in Thailand and pack enough blood for two films. Man, was I dead-wrong about this film and sorely disappointed.

So far this year we have had ‘Poltergeist‘, ‘The Deadly Spawn‘, and the recent ‘Drive‘ soundtrack, which sold out in record time in under 30 minutes. And just this past week, they sold out of their newest soundtrack, ‘Oblivion‘, which has an amazing score. The cover artwork is amazing and the sound is even better with their releases.

The Bishop Charlotte reporting….

In 1989, Herbert Ross directed a chick flick entitled Steel Magnolias and wowed America with an all-star cast. Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, and new-at-the-time Julia Roberts played the titular tarts and used their acting chops to save a movie that could have been the most melodramatic film of the 80’s (which, let’s be frank, would be saying something.) Steel Magnolias pushed past its flaws and became a classic.

Hi Bryan Here…

I came across the little gem which is an interview of Stanley Kubrick circa 1987.  This is when his “Full Metal Jacket was released.  It is an excellent read from one of the most reclusive film directors ever to grace us with his brilliant work.  The interview was conducted by Rolling Stone.

Hi Bryan Here…

I just love lengthy interviews with movie makers instead of the usual 5-6 minute interviews.  I just don’t get anything out of it.  Now with the long and drawn out interviews, thats where the magic happens.  I own a rare audio cd that came with my gigantic Stanley Kubrick Archives Book that has about a 90 minute interview with Stanley Kubrick of all his films up until The Shining.  It is BADASS.  So much insight and behind the scenes are given.

Hi Bryan Here…

It is finally here.  The final ten films of the list.  The top ten films of the decade.  It was blast making this list and remembering all those memories of seeing the movies for the first time.  It makes me want to watch a lot of them again.  These top 10 films were extremely difficult to place, but alas it was accomplished.  I hope you enjoy the finished list.  As usual, you will get the title of the film, the release date, a mini review and synopsis by yours truly, and a link to purchase the movie over at amazon for a good price.  Feel free to leave comments of your lists or to disagree or agree with mine.

Rob Zombie To Direct “Lords of Salem”

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 23rd, 2010

Rock God and Film Director Rob Zombie has announced his next film he will direct which will be “Lords of Salem”.  It is about what unfolds when an group of witches plague modern-day Salem.


Zombie says he will write the script and start shooting next year.


Also, Zombie was attracted to the setup by an offer of autonomy — he’s given “total control” over script, casting and final cut. That’s a far cry from working with the Weinsteins and Dimension.


The film will be a thriller, “set in contemporary Salem, where the inhabitants receive a demonic visit from a 300-year old coven of witches.”


Zombie says his best filmmaking experience to date has been with LionsGate on The Devil’s Rejects, and I’d mark the coincidence that Rejects is his best film. He says the battles on the two Halloween movies were draining. (”By the time I got [my way], I didn’t care anymore.”)

Speaking to Deadline, Zombie also namedrops The Shining as an example of a slow-burn film that might not get made by a studio now, which suggests that he might go for a longer, more deliberately paced film while making The Lords of Salem.


Zombie also went on to say, “I wanted to break away from anything related to preexisting material…The remake train is getting pretty tired now and when I made Halloween, everybody complained, either that it was too much like the original or too different. I like that people either love or hate what I do because it’s better than being in the middle, which means forgettable. But when you do an original premise, they take it on face value and after three years of not being able to win on Halloween, I just couldn’t go through that again.”


If only he had total control over House of 1000 Corpses.  I like Rob as a filmmaker, and I can’t wait to see his return to original movies.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 22nd, 2017

THE FILM


On paper, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard‘ sounds like a solid gold winner. You have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a violent action-comedy with enough “motherfucks” for two films, that is directed by the guy who made ‘The Expendables 3‘ – Patrick Hughes. Those looking for a ‘Deadpool‘ style character from Reynolds will be disappointed, as he’s the straight arrow here, or as straight as Reynolds could possibly be. Samuel L. Jackson on the other hand is amped up to 11, as he plays Kinkaid, an assassin for hire who will testify in a global crime ring against a foreign mad man, played by Gary Oldman, complete with a hard Russian accent.

Film Review: Good Time!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 23rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

Good Time was a pretty good time. (You saw what I did there). Starring Robert Pattison, who has made it his life’s mission to make every single person other than his accountant forget that he was ever in Twilight, as Connie (Conny?) the “smarter” brother in this film about two brothers who are very bad at being criminals. It was also directed by two brothers known as the Safdie bros. I have never seen the Safdie brothers’ previous directorial work but I assume that this film mirrors their style. The movie feels dirty and dark despite having the screen littered with neon lights and color choices that felt very unique. It won’t be anything you write home about but it certainly isn’t a bad movie and it’s always nice to see actors like Pattison do something entirely different from what we’re used to.

4K UHD Review: 3:10 to Yuma!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 1st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

515KUw8h2dL

THE FILM

Filmmaker James Mangold has certainly made a name for himself in the Western genre of cinema with the likes of 3:10 To Yuma and more recently Logan. The guy knows how to tell a thrilling story set in the old west as we’ve seen before. Prior to this 2007 version of the film, author Elmore Leonard (Jackie Brown, Get Shorty), wrote a short story, which was adapted into a 1957 film called 3:10 To Yuma. Mangold thought it would serve as a great remake in these modern times and he wasn’t wrong, while he added a few new story conflicts to this great 2007 version.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Poltergeist III’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

91do0Gkj2GL._SL1500_

THE FILM

The original ‘Poltergeist‘ film was a perfect mix of horror and comedy. It had the minds of Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind it and went on to financial and critical success. Of course, they made sequels to make more money, but we’ve often seen that more times than not, these sequels don’t embody the spirit of the original and can come off quite bad. The original film spawned two sequels and a TV Series along with the recent horrible remake. ‘Poltergeist II‘ had its share of great moments, due to the amazing visual effects work and the whole family coming back to reprise their roles, but that’s not the case with ‘Poltergeist III‘, which is no doubt, the worst film in the franchise.

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

Film Review: ‘Hello, My Name is Doris’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 17th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

287907

I didn’t know a whole lot about ‘Hello, my Name is Doris‘, other than that Sally Field was starring in the film as true genuine free spirit of sorts, but when the director’s name flashed on the screen in the opening credits, I knew immediately I was in for a real treat. That director is Michael Showalter, who you might remember from ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘, ‘Stella‘, or ‘The Baxter‘, which was his last big directorial feature film some eleven years ago. ‘Hello, My Name is Doris‘ walks a fine line between the comedy and dramatic realm, but Showalter’s screenplay and directorial effort walks the line quite well, mixing some genuine and silly comedy with some intense dramatic moments.

Hot muscled men in shining, defining armor, beautiful women wrapped in silks and armor for the menfolk, and mythology.  Sounds like the makings of greatness, right?  Well, no.  Gods of Egypt opens in a fast push in across Egypt.  Suddenly, Egypt is abruptly ripped apart by war obsessed and power hungry, Set (Gerard Butler).  With his father Osiris (Bryan Brown) and mother Isis (Rachael Blake) deceased, Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) has a journey ahead of him if he hopes to regain his kingdom.

Every goes home, snuggles with their loved one, and almost always lives happily ever after. Most people say that your wedding day is one of the best days, if not the best day of your life, but that’s not the case with Marcin Wrona’sDemon‘, which is more or less an odd tale about the Jewish myth of the dybbuk.

Film Review: ‘Black Mass’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 8.01.58 PM

It’s okay to look at ‘Black Mass‘ as a distant sequel to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ movies. Both have bad guys, wars, guns, monsters, and Johnny Depp. Maybe I’m reaching a bit there, but it’s still fun to think about them as distant cousins in movies. The story of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger has been told a lot, especially recently. If you’re unfamiliar with who Bulger is, he was one of the most vicious and heinous human beings to ever walk the planet. He was even the FBI’s Most Wanted man for more than a decade, as he spent most of his time in Boston as a mafia boss who committed murder amongst other things.

Janet’s Film Review: ‘Nightcrawler’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 30th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

nightcrawler-jake-gyllenhaal-riz-ahmed-600x399

Nightcrawler opens with the moonshining down on the city of angels, we see a thief, Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) in action.  He is cutting away chain-linked fence when a security guard spots him.  A bright light shines on the sunken face and wiry form of Bloom.  (According to IMDB, Jake Gyllenhaal lost 20 lbs. for the role.)  The rent-a-cop asks for ID, but Bloom repeatedly diverts his requests with distracting comments and questions.  Bloom is a fast-talker.  Cut to bargaining with a scrap metal yard foreman in an attempt to sell the copper wire and chain-linked fence Bloom had collected.  The foreman doesn’t waive on his offer and resolve, but Bloom rapidly counters like a string of firecrackers pushing for better pay.  The foreman refuses to give Bloom a penny more than his offer.  What does Bloom do in response to this let down?  He asks for a job.  As plainly as he can, the foreman assures Bloom that he would never hire a thief.  Scraping to make ends meet and living in squalor, Bloom is desperate for a fast track to success.

Lauren Bacall 1924-2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2014

Hi all, Jana here,

 

Lauren-Bacall-001

 

Sadly, I’m bringing you another bit of sad news tonight. While the world is still reeling from the loss of Robin Williams, we’ve unfortunately lost another star that adds to the pantheon of Hollywood Royalty that will be shining down on us from above. Lauren Bacall took her leave today at the age of 89.

Bacall shot to stardom during Hollywood’s golden age, with all the sexuality a hundred women possess in only her little finger, she was not accidentally given success, but was one of the most beautiful and glamorous women to prove she had the right to grace the silver screen.  It only took the slightest sound to escape her lips that rendered men powerless. Men wanted her and women wanted to be her. Her first film was the 1944 effort based on an Ernest Hemingway novel, ‘To Have and Have Not’. While this film not only launched her career, but it also paired her with the dashing and always debonair Humphrey Bogart. While  the reasons this was no chance encounter but a divine meeting will soon become clear to all after the siren and the hard-edged cynic with a nobility streak take their working relationship to the next level and end up with rice in their hair when the two thespians became legally wed on May 21, 1945 and lasted until Bogie’s death in  1957. She married one more time in her life to Jason Robards lasting only 8 years and ended in divorce.

Film Review: ‘Deliver Us From Evil’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

international-trailer-for-eric-banas-deliver-us-from-evil

We’re in the middle of the big summer movie blockbuster season and Screen Gems has released a new horror film for the July 4th weekend, hoping that the big horror crowds that usually show up at the start of the year or around Halloween will take a break from the BBQ’s and hit up this demonic possession film ‘Deliver Us From Evil‘. It’s got a good premise and the trailers have been quite promising. Even the main story line about a NY detective investigating some really creepy stuff has its merits. But although ‘Deliver Us From Evil‘ has some creepy moments and a surprisingly good exorcism scene, its bad dialogue, story telling, and acting make this possession movie less than stellar and not the horror movie you were hoping for.

Film Review: ‘Kill Your Darlings’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

 KYD

Over the past couple of years, we have had a string of films based on the Beat Poet generation that spawned writers and poets Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac. Some have been documentaries, some have been narratives on their successful careers, but none have covered the in depth time period where all of these writers met in college and were part of a murder. First time feature filmmaker John Krokidas knocks it out of the park with his jazzy, drug induced opus that is called ‘Kill Your Darlings‘.

It’s gotta be one of the sexiest record covers in music history, especially from a red-blooded American male perspective, giving you a little bit of a visual tease of nipples and pubic area without giving away too much. You’ve seen the album countless times in magazines, on record store shelves, probably even hanging on your big brother’s wall, but have you actually heard any of the songs on Roxy Music’s “Country Life” LP?

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘Cannonball Run’ is most certainly an acquired taste.  Much like a fine scotch.  It’s not for everyone.  If you’re a fan of those late 70’s early 80’s silly goofball comedies, than ‘Cannonball Run’  is the movie for you.  However, if you aren’t, then this movie will be like nails on a chalkboard.  I will say that it has an amazing cast with the likes of; Burt Reynolds, Farrah Fawcett, Dom Deluise, Roger Moore, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Jackie Chan, Adrienne Barbeau, and Jamie Farr to name a few.  This i movie is a lot of fun if you’re into this sort of thing, and my guess is that like myself, you have seen this over a dozen times.  ‘Cannonball Run’  is a zany film to have fun with.

Music has an uncanny effect on memory. It can direct a person to a specific place and time in their mind when a familiar song comes on the radio, when a nanosecond’s worth of a guitar lick is present in a television commercial, or when it’s heard in a movie. Music almost has same power as the sense of smell, triggering thoughts from so long ago.

In September 2001 I was just starting my sophomore year of college, not yet 20. I remember the weather in West Texas was pleasant; not too hot and not yet cool enough for a sweater. My roommate and I had just seen Crosby, Stills and Nash play a gig in Dallas the night of September 8, 2001, and like with most concerts it takes us several days to come off Cloud 9. I remember the fantastic greatest hits-like set from the show, and the big, burly roadie type gent three seats down from us that sat stoic for most of the show, until the opening licks of “Southern Cross” hit everyone’s ears, and this guy jumps out of his seat in excitement, as if his chair was electrified. I was still laughing about that moment the morning I rolled out of bed on September 11th. However, the moment I sat down to catch some tv before heading to class I was no longer laughing.
