  1. When I got into Who it was with Tennant's second season so there was only two seasons of new Who to catch up on so I did that first, and then went back and sampled stories from each classic Doctor, the ones that seemed most popular/liked. And then based on which Doctor I liked most (T. Baker) I started watching all of his. It didn't seem like the kind of show that absolutely required watching in chrono order, so I was happy to just jump around following my curiosity. But this was also long before there was an easy legal way to watch Who (new or classic) online, so it wasn't as easy to just watch series by series like it is now. I mean this was the days when new Who didn't air in the US until months after it did in the UK.
  2. I couldn't make it through season 1. Puke-worthy
  3. My favorite recording of Nutcracker is by Berlin, but the more recent Rattle recording from 15 years ago or whatever.
  4. 1962 The Beach Boys - "Surfin' Safari" The Beach Boys - "409" The Beatles - "Love Me Do" Booker T. & The MG's - "Green Onions" The Contours - "Do You Love Me?" The Cookies - "Chains" The Crystals - "He's a Rebel" The Del-Rios - "There's a Love" The Drifters - "Up On The Roof" The Everly Brothers - "Crying in the Rain" The Isley Brothers - "Twist and Shout" Little Eva - "The Loco-Motion" The Mar-Keys - "About Noon" The Marvelettes - "Beechwood 4-5789" Marvin Gaye - "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" The Miracles - "You've Really Got a Hold On Me" Neil Sedaka - "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" Otis Redding - "These Arms of Mine" Ray Charles - "I Can't Stop Loving You" Ray Charles - "Unchain My Heart" The Rooftop Singers - "Walk Right In" Roy Orbison - "The Crowd" Roy Orbison - "Dream Baby" Roy Orbison - "Working for the Man" Sam Cooke - "Twistin' the Night Away" The Shirelles - "Baby It’s You" The Shirelles - "Soldier Boy" William Bell - "You Don't Miss Your Water" The most obscure song on this list is sadly The Del-Rios "There's a Love" one of my favorite doo-wop style songs but it made zero impact on national charts/airplay.
  5. 1963 The Beach Boys - "In My Room" The Beach Boys - "Farmer's Daughter" The Beach Boys - "Surfer Girl" The Beach Boys - "Surfin' USA" The Beatles - "All My Loving" The Beatles - "I Want To Hold Your Hand" The Beatles - "She Loves You" The Beatles - "From Me to You" Bob Dylan - "Blowin' in the Wind" Bob Dylan - "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" Bob Dylan - "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" Bobby Vinton - "Blue Velvet" The Crystals - "Da Doo Ron Ron" The Crystals - "Then He Kissed Me" Darlene Love - "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry" Dionne Warwick - "Anyone Who Had a Heart" Dusty Springfield - "I Only Want To Be With You" The Drifters - "On Broadway" Eddie Holland - "Leaving Here" Johnny Cash - "Ring of Fire" The Kingsmen - "Louie Louie" Martha & The Vandellas - "Heat Wave" Martha & The Vandellas - "Come and Get These Memories" Marvin Gaye - "Pride and Joy" Marvin Gaye - "Can I Get a Witness" Ray Charles - "Take These Chains from My Heart" The Ronettes - "Be My Baby" Roy Orbison - "In Dreams" Roy Orbison - "Falling" Rufus Thomas - "Walking the Dog" Stevie Wonder - "Fingertips, Part 2"
  6. RIP Melinda Dillon from CE3k and A Christmas Story (and many other great movies over the years) https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/melinda-dillon-dead-close-encounters-christmas-story-1235317335/
  7. Avatar 2 came very close yesterday to its first single day gross in North America of less than $1 million (it made $1,005,502), which tells me that that particular milestone will come next week probably. If it does then its first sub million day will be between the 53rd and 56th day of release. For reference, Top Gun Maverick didn't have a sub million day until its 76th day of release (on August 10th). So Top Gun isn't bowed out of this contest yet!
  8. While there are some pop albums from 1964 I love (A Hard Day's Night, All Summer Long, The Times They Are a-Changin') there's not really enough to rank. So just the amazing singles list, in alphabetical order 1964 The Animals - "House of the Rising Sun" The Beach Boys - "All Summer Long" The Beach Boys - "I Get Around" The Beach Boys - "Fun Fun Fun" The Beatles - "A Hard Day's Night" The Beatles - "Can't Buy Me Love" The Beatles - "I Feel Fine" The Beatles - "Eight Days a Week" Bob Dylan - "The Times They Are a-Changin'" Bob Dylan - "It Ain't Me Babe" Chad & Jeremy - "A Summer Song" Chuck Berry - "You Never Can Tell" Chuck Berry - "No Particular Place to Go" Dave Clark Five - "Because" Dionne Warwick - "Walk On By" The Dixie Cups - "Chapel of Love" Dusty Springfield - "Wishin' and Hopin'" The Four Seasons - "Rag Doll" The Isley Brothers - "Who's That Lady" James Brown - "It's a Man's World" The Kinks - "You Really Got Me" The Kinks - "All Day and All of the Night" Martha & The Vandellas - "Dancing in the Street" Marvin Gaye - "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" Mary Wells - "My Guy" The Righteous Brothers - "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" The Rolling Stones - "It's All Over Now" Roy Orbison - "Oh, Pretty Woman" Roy Orbison - "It's Over" Sam Cooke - "A Change Is Gonna Come" The Supremes - "Baby Love" The Supremes - "Come See About Me" The Temptations - "The Way You Do the Things You Do" The Temptations - "My Girl" The Velvelettes - "He Was Really Sayin' Somethin'" The Zombies - "She's Not There"
  9. And Frances Ha is one of only a few Baumbachs I haven't seen yet. I am aware that it has a reputation of being a much brighter and happier movie than he usually makes, largely because of Gerwig. So when I talk about his sour style I am basing it more on stuff like Meyerowitz, Margot, Squid/Whale, etc.
  10. STIV: Voyage Home is such a feelgood optimistic cuddly movie, how do you not like that?!
  11. I really don't even think they're that similar really, especially as Anderson's movies have only gotten more fanciful and disconnected from reality over time. Baumbach tends to write rather sour stories about how upper class artist/intellectual type of people are selfish and cruel to each other in subtle and unsubtle ways. Anderson tends to write bittersweet nostalgic stories of how people make connections with each other, it's a fundamentally more optimistic tone. Anderson's films are also sort of a collage of clear influences that he distills down into his particular mannerisms, while Baumbach's style is more straightforward realistic docudrama (White Noise excepted, since it's an adaptation and a departure for him). They both have mannered writing styles for dialogue but mannered in pretty different ways. I'd say that Darjeeling is the closest Anderson ever got to Baumbach's style.
