Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas

A classic. Easily the best screen adaption of Hunter S. Thompson's debut of gonzo. You really owe it to yourself to see this movie.. You can stream it for free on fancast.com.

In case you're not familiar, Hunter S. Thompson covers a narcotics conference in Las Vegas and then does a story on the Mint 400 race for Playboy. The real quest is for the soft white underbelly of "The American Dream", which is eventually traced, in a drug induced frenzy, to the casino at Circus Circus in 1971.

Lots of music from the 60s and 70s, snippets of course.

thanks cc and hey hal

yea. across the universe is a great film. saw it a few times and my favorite part is the BEYOND bus with Bono in the role of kesey-esque guy and the driver made me think of neal behind the wheel, but did resemble kesey. Eddie Izzard is a real trip doing the mr kite thing. LOVE IT

Hal R: Re Tzokay Tibetan chanting

The throat singers of Tuva do two tone singing.
The Tibetan monks do Tzokay style chanting, which accomplishes three tones.

Across the Universe

Ok, so I don't watch many movies or watch tv, so I am kind of behind the times. Loved this movie using Beatle's songs. The way it starts out so innocent and too sweet and moves on to the turmoils of the later 60's is right on. And the trip with Dr. Roberts is quite a trip, wow. The guy driving Dr. Roberts bus looks like Kesey, anyone else notice that?

two tone singing

I've been to several concerts with Tibetan monks doing the two tone singing, it is amazing and seems to just get inside you in a very deep place.

Garcia

Hey now, Trish!!

Garcia film IS in the works!

the rights to two bios were legally obtained, (Captain Trips is one) and some may be surprised to learn, the dude Justin Berfield who used to playe Reese in in that schlock TV show Malcolm in the Middle is involved.. Jason Felts is another guy involved with the project, his dad was a deadhead...

MAYBE the movie will focus on Garcia's recovery from the diabetic coma, when he had to re-learn the guitar... according to rumours in LaLa land, the film will also include scenes of Garcia in the army and how he met Phil and the other members of the band...

about a year ago, a few top notch people got involved to produce this, Eric Eisner among others.

Hollywoodland is SLOW!!!! keep patient. I've seen unreleased copies of a treatment for this, should be good! who will play Garcia??? TOP SECET!!!

peace.
