  1. Here are 2 of the best directorial debuts that I watched in 2020: Natalie Erika James used the haunted house sub genre of horror to weave a tale about something that we all have to deal with eventually as we get older and so do the people around us. This felt like an extremely personal film as a form of therapy. (Might be on Hulu soon due to their exclusive deal with IFC Films.) Andrew Patterson’s The Vast Of Night was a breathtaking sci-fi experience and shows what you can do with a $700k budget. It felt like watching a hybrid of early Spielberg movies written by Richard Linklater with his long take camera work following all of the action and an overall feeling that Rod Serling was behind the whole operation. I can’t get over how amazing this film looked and gripped me from the beginning. And the 2 leads were superb unknown actors. It’s felt like a long time since a debut film has knocked me on my ass. I’d probably go as far back as Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko. (Available on Amazon Prime Video)
  2. Thank you for the kind words!

  4. Enjoyable late 70s romp about cars and Mark Hamill growing up to enjoy other things like Annie Potts. Cameron Crowe’s long forgotten follow up to Fast Times At Ridgemont High was an 80s blast (writing credit only). Music licensing fees have held this to obscurity for quite a bit. The version that I watched had songs from Madonna & Prince removed, even though they are credited in the end. Eddie Van Halen provides the original soundtrack. There’s even a Ron Wood cameo during the huge party scene. Chris Penn, Lea Thompson, Eric Stoltz, Ilan Mitchell-Smith & Rick Moranis are all great here, before they really hit it big soon after. “It’s casual.” I’ve watched a lot of fantastic 2020 releases recently. I’ll come back here soon to write about them.

  9. Crowded House - Dreamers Are Waiting due in late March. Very strange to see them having tour dates in early 2021 in Europe & Australia/New Zealand, but I understand why. Neil Finn said that they plan on filming at least one show for promo purposes, if they try to tour the States in late summer like he mentioned during one recent FB Q & A. I can’t see that happening. Definitely a bucket list band.

  16. 😃 Yeah, that was definitely meta to consider putting it in the recap. It was certainly a surprise and greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susie! What’s weird is that I checked their IG page before tonight’s episode to see how last night’s episode was numbered taking into consideration that last week’s health update episode was some sort of anomaly, so I snagged Paul’s comment idea to name it 124.5. So when I saw that last night’s show was numbered 125, I thought “somehow we’re on the same page.”

  22. Ha! Thanks for the nod. I was answering a birthday text from a friend that’s a waiter and his parents both came down with Covid during Thanksgiving week. Out of nowhere I surprisingly got the notification about the show, but didn’t have my second iPhone next to me to take notes. I stepped out of the show a few times to answer the texts and when I went back in it would pick up where I left off, but then jump to real time. I never heard the Elliot Smith mention. It sounds like they did 2 instrumentals and gave an update on how everyone is doing which I’m glad to hear sounds good so far. I want to go back and watch it uninterrupted.
  23. I love it! No complaints here. It sounds excellent with ear buds and through cat speakers.The upside is having access to all of the shows plus the Front Of House series at your fingertips. If there’s anything that I really want to purchase & download, then I can still do that. I’d have to check the Solid Sound shows to compare because I bought & burnt those. What’s the deal? I tried it out for a free 30 day trial back in April with no bullshit or drama meaning there wasn’t a situation where any Wilco show was off limits or you couldn’t skip ahead etc like on say Spotify.
  24. I have a bit of bad luck history with the show that they dropped today: Jeff solo in Los Angeles February 2006. I made plans to have a family trip to hit up LA during the first week of February. It was from Super Bowl Sunday to Sunday February 12. Probably a month or so after my trip was booked, 2 Jeff Tweedy solo shows were announced in LA. I was upset that I couldn’t make night 1 because that was the night that I was going to be flying back home. The day of the first show the northeast got a 1-2 foot blizzard stopping all flights for the day, so now I’m stuck in LA an extra night last minute and Jeff Tweedy is playing 20 minutes away from my hotel! The second night is available today and I hate to say that I was on an airplane when it was happening. Lol
