(without the belly button is much sexier) *** not yet, still rubbing ben gay (not that there's anything worng with that) on the bum hip. a lawyer? shit, enough people hate me. AND, I never passed a BAR in my life without stopping in for a couple of drinks... still waiting on that rider footfetish 'she's got bells on her toes' DVD... talking about movies, that is. ON topic, as ever here in deadland. ( -: peace.
never a lawyer
never a lawyer, nor an attorney, but, however, ever so often a 'solicitor' read into that what you will. ( -; (getting old, forgot to include that joke in the previous post-- or blame Carlo Rossi) peace.

If you look with the right eyes...
... Hunter Thompson said, you can see the high water mark. Ain't it true! RIP Hunter S. Thompson
Hunter is quoted on a Flying Dog bottle
While enjoying an Imperial Porter "Gonzo" the other day, I noticed on the label a quote from the late Mr. Thompson, " Good people drink good beer" . Wow, what a brew with those 85 IBU's. http://www.flyingdogales.com/Beer-Specialty-Gonzo.aspx There's another quote mentioned.
answer to CC re Jerry & Hunter
Couldn't let this one go by... Jerry & Hunter are alike in some ways, different in others. They were both artists and they both took their own lives, which is a controversial and radical expression of freedom. To say that Jerry didn't know he was taking his own life at some point in the 20 years he was using is ridiculous. Is that the distinction you are trying to make? Please PM me on this if you'd like to reply, most people have no appetite for this subject.
Up In The Air
George Clooney will probably win an Oscar for his role as a corporate exec. who flies around the country firing people. His goal in life? To accumulate 10,000,000 frequent flyer miles. It is a very witty and sophisticated comedy. The people he fires are played by people who have been recently laid off from their jobs. This whole movie is really quite poignant and very good. One of the best I've seen in the last 5 years.
At one point, a "prophet" named Benjamen Creem say's: "God told me to watch in the window. the're was a carB.M. and you got in the car? B.C. Yes" Sound familiar to me. lmao, Richard.
Karate Kid remake with Jackie Chan...
...is an excellent movie for everybody but especially for kids on a rainy day this summer.
Unthinkable, extended version
Samuel L. Jackson fans will love this one. The movie is a thriller about a terrorist who plants a number of nuclear bombs around the country in the major cities, exactly what number is the main question. The movie has several statements to make about fighting terrorism in general: Who the players are Who has the moral high-ground: Are both warring parties on the same level?? How far are the players willing to go to accomplish their missions? This is a movie you watch from start to finish without stopping, or at least hitting the pause button. Highly recommended if you are into action thrillers that are well done and leave you thinking afterward.
A great film from 1990 (I think) w/ Tim Robbins. Very underated and highly recommended.
and still relevant on so many levels, PonchoBill.
An emotional ride into so many nooks and crannies of the psyche and the soul. The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
I remember feeling sorry for Jacob Singer and then really happy for the guy once I figured it all out. Having eaten a couple of bad ones in my day, I realized it could have been alot worse. This film really spoke to me at the time. ( Can't remember why?). I think this was Mackuly Culkin's first role.
As for comedy....
....to me, if I want to laugh I'll throw on "Blazing Saddles" or "Life of Brian". My two favorites. I wonder what would have happened had Mel Brookes teamed up with Monty Python? Mmmm...
Have any of you seen an environmental documentary called "The Cove"? About a guy trying to save dolphins from being slaugtered in a bay in Japan?? My animal-loving almost 13 year old is asking to see it on tv tonight, but I am not sure whether this is a good idea.********************************** By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean. Mark Twain
well, it won an Oscar and all
but I think it's pretty gory and somehow I think your 13 year old already knows that slaughtering dolphins is not so swell.
Nicolas Cage loses his shit
America's finest actor or a guy with a real problem? Made me laugh ....and sort of therapeutic
is pretty much how I feel today********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde
It was funny!!

The Party w/ Peter Sellers
Love Nature ?
Then check out "A Wild American Forest" narrated by Susan Sarandon. It's a film about the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion which straddles the Oregon-California border and where I've lived for the past 25 years. Check it out and then come visit ! Walk you in the tall trees
it's a very nice area
that's for sure!
If it can't be found on Netflix or something try www.earthimage.org
Woodstock: Three Days of Peace, Directors Cut
Just saw this particular version for the first time. Had me rockin' even though I didn't attend. Fell in love with '69 Grace Slick. Triple Scorpio with those piercing blue eyes! Janis Joplin with the crazy quilt stargown. Wavy Gravy's announcements from the stage. Jimi Hendrix playing the Star Spangled Banner>Voodoo Chile (I think) ~ Hipsters, tripsters, real cool chicks sir ~
a map for liberty
Soldier Of The Road - a film about Peter Brötzmann. "This film came out of an irrepressible desire to hear Peter Brötzmann's music live, to record his sounds as he crafted them, to film the energy and the freedom of this man. I knew the old vinyl covers he had designed as well as his posters, but the discovery of his painting was a revelation, Above all, as we discussed, enjoying a good cigare, I discoverd a sensitive, open minded man. It was a privilege..."
A variation on the mad scientist theme. Modern pharma hires bright young DNA splicers to create new life and come up with life saving medicines. They create Dren, a humanoid creature that can be aquatic or avian when the need suits and has many other attributes as well, like being able to change sex. Which she does and has sex with the boy-friend, girl friend couple who are the splicers. Worth seeing but the morality play part (big corporation toys with life for profit) is weak in this movie to concentrate on the main character.
American: The Bill Hicks Story
Riveting! I feel as though I knew this man my entire life yet we never met and I never saw him perform. An acquaintance over on rottentomatoes (as well all three of my sons) turned me onto Bill Hicks a few years back and my life changed for the better ... I no longer felt alone. I also really like "Sane Man".
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. always a stretch to challenge the '79 adaption with Alec Guinness. but with a superb Director in Tomas Alfredson; Let The Right One, yes the original Swedish film, not the pointless American remake. are U.S. citizens really so dumb that a language outside of English, a cinematic production with subtitles is so completely incomprehensible? Remember: SUBSTANCE OVER STYLE. digression in the rear view mirror. nicely paced, nicely shot and nice sound. not exceptional, but anything with Gary Oldman has a certain gravitas. and Kathy Burke is always a treasure. dominates any scene she's in.
The Rum Diary
from the mind of Hunter S Thompson. Johnny Depp plays Hunter not so well in this book that was not so good. Trying to squeeze every last dollar out of the estate, eh? The movie opens 10/28
all the fun of a slow-motion hanging
i wonder if he'd read it in a faux kooky 'I'm eccentric, me' exaggerated dead dull void like tone?talent deserted long ago, producing visual ennui while the crowds gawp on in pleasure, drowsily spooning mouthfuls of congealing nachos into their glistening chops. Depp's recent films represent untertainment at it's finest and will be warmly welcomed by anyone who regularly sits in front of the screen with a loaded shotgun in their mouth, trying to pluck up the courage.
the last time I set foot in the local multiplex was for the Dead movie screening. They're not going to get my money for this. But there's nothing wrong with being fun to watch, and luckily Johnny Depp can make the phone book fun to watch. You want high art, this is probably not your movie.
Oh, it doesn't have to be high art!! I like my candyfloss fluff too!I just don't like candyfloss fluff dressed as high art. Still, nice cheek bones though. I would.

a documentary by visionary filmmaker Jan Kounen.the heart of the Shipibo Shamans.
Kevin Spacey, Donald Sutherland & various others team up on a witty, fast-paced comedy about three white guys in LA trying to kill their bosses. How they managed to make this plot very good is beyond me. Great acting, production values and blooper reel at the end.
great documentary film on the history of surfing.
beautiful short film "Poleaxed", written, directed and part filmed by the always impeccable Helen Petts.A meditation on stillness and perception following a road accident and subsequent illness.
