  1. @Naïve Old Fart, Richard, mate, stay strong. These matters are tough, they may bend you, but do hang in there and don't let 'em break you. You can and will get through this shadow over your life. It helps to have something to keep looking forward to, and, even if nothing else, you seem to be in a geographic place that brings you some happiness, so relish every moment and keep anticipating more moments to relish. Don't be afraid to reach out for a helping hand to bring you back on your feet. It could be friends that could help you land a job, or maybe you could reach out to an area church that might help you get back on track, mind, body and soul. Don't despair, there is always some hope to grasp onto. As someone who has wandered a bit into these shadows of the mind before, I want to let you know I'm pulling for you on my end with prayers and these positive thoughts. Bon courage.
  2. Lady and the Tramp (2019) by Joseph Trapanese Really enjoyed this one. More than warm and pleasant, I think it has some substance to it that hits the right spot. The orchestrations are lovely, crafted with some care. The enveloping "A Home" is a notable example. And there are some moments of surprising harmonic vitality, like in the opening of "Busting Peg and Bull" A nice listen indeed.
  3. Lincoln -John Williams A symphonic suite of the highest order.
  4. Revenge of the Sith by John Williams As close as we'll ever get to a Williams opera.
  5. We might get a few snowflakes down here tonight too!
  6. Jay looking into this thread:
  7. Newly surfaced video of a Susanna Hoffs solo gig in Miami, circa 1991. She was opening for Don Henley, promoting her then new album When You're A Boy. The songs on that one work considerably better live than on record, imo. Too bad she didn't break out the Bowie cover.
  8. Weekend! Homework! Housework! Loneliness!
  9. Everything just looks like a boring fever dream. And every single scene where the villains are in are unbearable. Disgusting prosthetics, ugly costumes, sets that look like they forgot to add effects to the green screen, and the camera lingers for no good reason on these things. Plus, why did Lynch think it was a good idea to show that Baron guy lusting after his winged speedo wearing nephew Sting? I just think the movie is a mess. No charm, no charisma. Flat acting. And the constant voice overs do things no favors. But, I can see why some would think otherwise. It is immersive in a way. While the lead performance is sorely lacking in dynamics, I will acknowledge that Paul's character arc is rather well-defined.
  10. I predict base hit The whole Dune concept is too out there
