  1. Watched the The Thin Red Line. For the life of me, I can't remember if I ever seen it before. Nicely shot - definitely an interesting perspective of war. Little too dramatic at times, though. Nolte and Penn definitely shined. I watched the Criterion edition -- in the beginning of the movie, it stated: “Director Terrence Malick recommends that The Thin Red Line be played loud.” You had to hit continue to watch the film. Never seen that before on a DVD - it seemed that Malick really wanted the viewer to acknowledge his request. I also checked out Malick'
  2. SIn after Sin, Sad Wings, Unleashed, and Stained Glass are my favorites --- still haven't gotten Sin after Sin on vinyl, yet. I did pick up a copy of Priest, Live ----- always had soft spot for that record - the last one (on cassette) I purchased of theirs, before my musical taste changed (damn Grateful Dead).
  3. My local used record store/vintage furniture store have been celebrating their 2 year anniversary the last two weekends. Couldn't believe that a month or so I bought a record player, an actual record store opened up within a 5 minute walk from house. Some of my favorite purchase has been buying old Judas Priest records that I only had on cassette when I was kid. Yesterday I bought Hell Bent For Leather - never owned this one. Don't think I ever heard "Evening Star" before --- a great bridge tune --- a mix of old school and what they will become.
  4. How was Billy K show, dagwave?
  5. Man, I don't remenber the last time I downloaded a show. Bought a turntable a couple of years ago, not sure if that has anything to do with it. Also, when Nugs had a great sale going on, last year, I subscribed. Though, I think I still prefer a great audience pull of a Wilco show, than a sbd. Thanks (A-Man) for helping to keep the archive, going. I appreciate it.
  6. That's cool. It's great that Billy got Strings in the band.
  7. Maybe Wilco can sub out the Wharf Rats ------ still going strong at GD affiliated shows. I always thought that was one of the greatest things at a Dead show - always having them available. Oddly enough, the other thing was searching for and finding great looking mushrooms (though those days of me searching for those are long gone).
  8. I can not see ever stopping, unless his health starts to really decline. The last time I saw him was in 2019, his voice was stronger than when I saw him in 2015. A great setlist at the 2019 Chicago show, too. Setlist: Things Have Changed It Ain’t me Babe Highway 61 Revisited Simple Twist of Fate Can’t Wait When I Paint my Masterpiece Honest With Me Tryin’ to go to Heaven Make you Feel my Love Pay in Blood Lenny Bruce Early Roman Kings Girl From North Country Not Dark Yet Thunder on the Mount
  9. Don't forget the Guns/Motley Crue feud, too. Doesn't get more entertaining than:
  10. I was surprised Turner was not in the hall , already, as a solo artist. But the below may help explain things. Looking forward to the HBO Tina doc to come out on DVD. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/arts/how-racism-pushed-tina-turner-and-other-black-women-artists-out-of-america
  11. or a MTV award. Though I must admit those early MTV awards shows were pretty great - content/performance wise.
  12. No Maiden, again. Didn't really expect them to make it, though. Good for the Go-Go's.
  13. Just checked - beige for me, too. I don't remember different colors, though.
  14. Listening to the Eugene show via nugs --- such a great version of "Not For the Seasons".
  15. Do you mean the slip case that slides over the jewel case - if so, yes - mine is beige, too. (at least I think I have a slip case over it - need to check, though)
