Ennio Morricone / Meet before Wednesday's concert
« on: July 11, 2006, 06:04:59 AM »
Meet  prior to Wednesday's concert?

I will be flying into London along with a friend for the concert.
Does anyone want to meet for a drink or perhaps dinner (spaghetti ?) prior to the concert?

This should be at a venue within a quick walk to the Apollo, but since I'm in the USA, I would have to let a London participant suggest a place.


The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Anachronisms in GBU
« on: August 09, 2004, 12:22:40 PM »
It goes without saying that 1) Anachronisms abound in this film; and 2) regardless of this, GBU is still fantastic.

Obviously this could be a long list, but here are three anachronisms beyond mere props that fill out a scene but involve an integral part of the plot:

1)  Firearms issues.   You don't have to be a gun nut to know that at the time of the civil war, repeating shot pistols and rifles were rare and certainly not available in the number and diverse models that Tuco used to assemble his revolver.

2)  Dynamite.  Nobel invented this stuff in 1866, one year after the civil war ended and atleast a couple years after Bondie and Tuco used it to blow the bridge.

3)  Half tone photography.  Do I remember this correctly that the wanted photos of Tuco were printed?  It wasn't until the 1890s that this process was introduced.  

General Discussion / Leone in the NYT Crossword puzzel
« on: December 24, 2003, 07:51:43 AM »
In today's (12/24/03) New York Times Crossword puzzle, 41 across was clued:

Spaghetti western director Sergio

With the answer being "Leone"

 Each day of the week the NYT gets harder, but I don't see how they could have made this clue any easier.  Harder variants might include:

"Tarrantino's favorite director" or

"Director of Fistful of Dollars"

I'm sure that Leone has been included prior to this puzzle, a 5 letter word with 3 vowels is just too right not to have been used before.
