Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: "Something to do with death"

If he was "death personified," then he wouldn't be human. If he wasn't human, he wouldn't have had a human brother or the human emotions to avenge him.
But I could be wrong.

You see Frank kill Harmonicas brother, yes - but how do you know he just rode away afterwards?  Frank killed little Timmy without a blink (though he loses his smile when 'called by name') so why not the young Harmonica?

Personally I go for the supernatural version, but I can quite happily read it either way.

City of God

I meant to watch this when it came out as I'd heard so many good things about it.  Now I wish I had seen it on the big screen.  Entertaining yet terrifying in that people really do live like this on a daily basis.  Even worse was the accompanying documentary where the Chief of Police openly admits that corruption in his force was a good thing as it helped maintain control in the slums of Rio.  Fantastic unless you live there.  If you haven't seen it, watch it.

Use the smaller one Jill, those big two sided things (I don't know the name of them) are impossible

This is on in the UK on Wednesday 27th at midday on one of the obscure Sky Channels (Arts??).  I can't remember which exactly as I don't have TV-I-Have-To-Pay-For, but I did read it in a comprehensive TV listings guide

Just thought I'd share this with y'all

Me and the tribe have just returned from a venture through Normandy; driving about, enjoying the scenery while the kids played their DS's in the back.  One particular nice day, my wife looked at the blue sky and remarked that the 'Gods are with us today'.  Five minutes later, I took a wrong turning and quipped without thinking 'Gods not on our side cos he hates idiots also'.  Not perfect paraphrasing and the whole thing went over everyones head anyway.

By the by, it reminded me of a few years ago when I really wanted to quote an SL line to the nation (and maybe the world). We had a bit of a nutter in the area.  He killed two sisters about 15 miles south of here (York), then hitched up and killed an elderly couple.  There was a big manhunt for the guy (Mark Hobson I think he was called) and since he had no transport it was assumed he was still in the area.  It was big news and the nations media swarmed the city to give the nation the latest updates.  Obviously, in between talking to PC Plod, they were asking residents what they thought of the whole thing.  I tried my hardest to be asked since I had my answer ready - "When you've killed four, it's easy to make it five".  I never got asked.

You're welcome.  I've just seen in the same link that Marmota gives a link to another link that has the notation.  Funnily enough in that link I describe 'How to bend notes' in a different way; but I can't remember writing it even though it was a couple of years later.  Must've been on the meths

You can do it with a diatonic, but you have to 'bend the notes'.  I gave the notes in the link below (irrelevant of key)

A diatonic will gve a wailing sound as you bend from one note to another.  A chromatic will shift from note to note a bit more sudden.  I also put in a bit later on about how to bend notes, but its hard to put into words.

Woodstock   7/10

Some amazing performances (The Who, Hendrix, Janis Joplin), some mediocre (Ten Years After, Canned Heat) and some not good at all (Sha Na Na); music aside, I think that this films true quality lies with stunning photography and conversations with interesting subjects - the organisors, the audience, the locals and the workers(Port-O-San).  I saw it last night for the first time in years and enjoyed it.  Aside from Janis (The original Amy Winehouse?) they may as well not have bothered with any extra clips.  I never knew till last night that Martin Scorsese was editor and assistant  director.

.. and here's a good Red Dwarf clip.  I like good dialogue comedy.  Steptoe and Son excelled at it.  Well written and well acted out

thats it for now

Couple of Vikki Pollards from Little Britain.  I don't normally like the character, but the second one is funny;  I put the first one in to give novices an idea of what she is like normally.

Rocko's Modern Life, Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, The Angry Beavers, and of course, that pinnacle of pop culture irreverence, Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Hey Groggy, I've never got round to watching Seinfeld.  Everybody Loves Raymond showed over here at about 8 IN THE MORNING!!  I kept catching snippets now and again and it looked funny but seeing as at that time I'm half asleep and getting ready for work, I never got 'in depth' so to speak with the characters.  Try and get a few good clips.  Also do the same with the others (Rocko, Beavers and Mystery Science) as I've never heard of them.  I'm going to try to find a couple of Little Britain sketches.  I think it's done well abroad and the guys are writing a Little America so if any of you in the US haven't caught it on BBC America yet these'll give you an idea.  Surreal.
