  1. Greetings from Earth!

    Aah, @Sharky, and if there was love, would that be enough?
  2. Remasters of the First 6 Star Wars Soundtracks Coming May 4

    @Tallguy is right, @Trent B. The original efx were a combination of Doug Trumbull, and a post-ILM/pre-Apogee John Dykstra. The efx on the DVD were created by the now-defunct Foundation Imaging.

    Reputation, Isn't worth the patience. Who cares what they're thinking? Who cares if they're whispering?

    Wha'?! @Alexcremers, you must own TUSK!
  5. Greetings from Earth!

    Have you thought about changing your name to Mr. Heartbreak (great song, from a great record, btw!)?

    That's Troxy Loses
  7. Film: HOOK

    Alright, I'll give you that, Steve. Don't tell anyone, but...(sshhh!)...I happen to like SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO HEAVEN. I guess my big problem is with ADIP - a sickly, two-faced piece of work. Art as expression, not as market campaigns... Ps I tried to pm you, but couldn't. Check out the Electronic Music thread, over the next few days...
  8. The Official Pop and Rock Music thread

    It's a great track @Alexcremers, from what is generally known as "the forgotten Mac record". Personally, I like MIRAGE. I liked it enough to splash out on the box set 18 months ago. "Sheer bloody poetry" (The Times)
  9. Film: HOOK

    For a start, he flew from Wembley, to Philadelphia...on fucking Concorde, for fuck's sake! If that wasn't laughing in the face of what Live Aid was all about, then I don't know what was? He then got way above his station, and started ingratiating himself with just about everybody, and everywhere: films, TV, records - not to mention his stuff with Genesis. As the 90s progressed, the record sales dropped off, and he quit Genesis. He truly was flavour of the month, for about nine years. Thankfully, Britpop, blew people like him to kingdom come. I'm not saying he wasn't talented. Just check out his song-writing credits, and his percussion work with both Genesis, and Brand X, proves that he can be a phenomenal drummer. It's just that he was the figurehead for all the "corporate rock", that seemed to define the 80s.

    What's a "rerun"?

    Try Dr. Robert. You'll pay money just to see yourself with Dr. Robert.
  12. O-o-oh, Matron! Frying, tonight! Infamy, infamy, they've all got it in for me! "Where to start?"? Begin with Michael Kamen's HIGHLANDER.

    Ouch! I sympathise, dude, (more than you know). How's your morphine quest going?

    Now, she could assimilate me, anytime @TGP is right: these two great religions can co-exist.
  15. The Official Midlife Crisis Thread

    Aah. That's a great song, from a great record! I'm not sure if I've ever had a mid-life crisis. I just have daily crises, that I stumble through, and somehow manage to emerge from, relatively unscathed, on the other side. Ho hum.
