  1. We agree! Which is why two of their weakest songs I still referred to as "pretty great" But seriously I listened to "Night Flight" yesterday driving in the sunny warm weather and it felt so good.
  2. Couldn't disagree more! "Night Flight" and "Down by the Seaside" are two of my favorite LZ songs. I don't really care about when they were recorded, Physical Graffiti works for me as a front-to-back listen and I love every second. Honestly, "The Rover" and "Houses of the Holy", which were left off of the previous album, are both way better songs than "The Crunge" or "D'yer Mak'er" which I think are two of the weakest songs the band ever recorded. I guess this is our biennial-ish Led Zep debate that happens every now and then on JWFan
  3. I believe I described them as "pretty great"
  4. And at the same time, Paul Greengrass will make a better, more focused movie that gets half the attention of the flashier Stone movie.
  5. Yes. Like a lot of Brahms, it's not especially to my taste. Instead of achingly beautiful, it just sounds kinda staid to my ears. But that's ok, I enjoy reading Williams on music he loves even when I don't necessarily love it too!
  6. Today the NY Times has published an article with recommendations from notable people meant to help the listener fall in love with the sound of the cello. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/03/arts/music/five-minutes-classical-music-cello.html It's just a short blurb, but very nice to read Williams talking about music he loves. It feels very "on brand" for him to pick a Brahms piece
  7. Randomly decided to listen to Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy today, which was my favorite album of theirs when I initially became a fan ca. 2002 (Physical Graffiti replaced it as my official favorite many years ago). My current standing on HOTH: 5 songs are absolutely killer and among the greatest rock songs ever recorded and the other 3 songs are just pretty great Led Zeppelin songs. The 5 I consider among the great rock songs ever: The Song Remains the Same The Rain Song Over the Hills and Far Away No Quarter The Ocean It's the three in the middle that are great, but drag the album a bit.
  8. Didn't the Disney demasters feature different takes in some cases? Did somebody compare the demaster Imperial March to previous releases to verify they were they same takes?
  9. The way Neil Bulk pronounces Total Recall will haunt my nightmares tonight.
  10. I get mixed up with y'all having the same avatar. I thought you were replying to yourself for a minute, Jay.
  11. I’m of the opinion that the more people play video games, the better. It’s a big market with room for everyone. If you value knowing you’re playing on best possible hardware, those options exist for you. If the Nintendo ethos appeals to you, the Switch exists for you. If you just wanna play Fortnite on your phone, you can do that. It’s just a leisure activity! Nothing, and I mean nothing, about the RPGs that KM plays appeals to me in any possible way, but you don’t see me popping up in the thread just to say “why do you enjoy this boring garbage?” You do you, man.
  12. I don’t know how they became so popular as to be the default waffle maker here. It’s annoying.
  13. My waffle iron broke a few months ago, unfortunately. I'm in the market for a new one, but it's surprisingly difficult to choose one. Especially because I like to make classic American style waffles (shallow pockets) instead of Belgian (deep pockets).
  14. I have truly perfected my pancake recipe and cooking process during this pandemic. I make pancakes for the family every Saturday morning, and at this point I have to say I'm making the most delicious pancakes I've ever eaten every weekend.
  15. Maybe it'll be a half hour of Ludwig jamming on recorder in the woods!
  16. Gonna start the new Shantae game this weekend.
  17. Just little things like when Lecter puts on the Southern accent to tease Starling or his line about the man whose head she finds in the car ("Best thing for him, really. His therapy was going nowhere.") that I think are darkly funny. I've no idea what Richard thinks is unintentionally funny, though.
  18. I think it's a lot better than those, personally. It's some of the smartest comedy writing of recent memory. But I was always more of a 30 Rock man than an Office man back in the mid to late 2000s. Community was right in my wheel house when it started.
  19. Nice post, but he shoulda linked to the LLL edition of the soundtrack!
