  1. - Moonraker - Twin Peaks - Conan the Barbarian (the 2010 Prometheus recording)
  2. Yeah, I'll need to watch that too. It's only that I can't decide if I should wait with it until after I've read the book (which'll take me some time)
  3. Definitely haven't read it yet, but just today, I bought The Outsider by Stephen King. Having been a big SK fan and a 'Constant Reader' for decades, I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
  4. +1 (+2 actually, including my wife )
  5. Is anybody else following "the Betelgeuse panic" these last weeks? (For those who have no idea WTF I'm talking about: Starting in October 2019, Betelgeuse began to dim noticeably, and by January 2020 its brightness had dropped by a factor of approximately 2.5, from magnitude 0.5 to 1.5. Despite speculation that the drop might indicate that Betelgeuse could soon explode as a supernova, astrophysicists consider this unlikely.)
  6. - Wyatt Earp - Terminator 2: Judgment Day - The Spy Who Loved Me - Mission: Impossible - the TV scores
  7. First listen: Jesus H. Christ, that's boring. She sounds like they had to wake her up and force her to quicky record the vocals so she could go back to sleep. Second listen: Maybe I was being a bit harsh. It's not SO bad. Third (and so far final) listen: OK, I'll give this thing 3/10 but that's all I'm giving it.
  8. - Jurassic Park - Empire of the Sun - Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Dances With Wolves - Aliens
  9. This bump/thread reminds me - so when are we getting the 2 CD LLL edition of Tomorrow Never Dies?!
  10. Exactly true, my phone now also feels buttery smooth (although it was already very fast before that). I also always activate Developer Options and turn animation speed/duration to 0.5x which also helps with the impression of smoothness and responsiveness. Plus, Samsung has done a truly wonderful job with the One UI 2. The first one was already very cool but this one is fantastic and makes for an extremely user-friendly experience.
  11. I need to bump this thread since my Galaxy S9+ just received the new Android 10/One UI 2.0 update and so far, I'm loving it! Would love to upgrade to Note 10+ sometime later this year but I doubt I'll be able to afford it.
  12. Since last October, I've been working at home but in the 15 years prior to that, I've had to drive anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour to get to work or home (so in one direction). While driving, I always listen to either film music, classical, jazz or prog metal.
  13. Jean-Féry Rebel - Les caractères de la danse Wiener Philharmoniker - Neujahrskonzert 2020
  14. Honoring on his 91st birthday with: - Total Recall - First Blood - Executive Decision - Supergirl - Alien - Star Trek - The Omen - Air Force One Love how both Alien and Total Recall have a cue named A New Face
  15. Christ, I really do love potato chips (and snacking in general), definitely more than would be healthy so I need to hold myself back as best I can ... Meanwhile, I especially love to snack upon: - classic (salted) - ketchup - BBQ - salt & vinegar
  16. Yeah, that doesn't surprise me. Most people do. On this lovely Sunday, I'm listening to Haydn's lovely Missa sancti Nicolai, Hob. XXII:6 and Mozart's Missa longa in C, K. 262 (both of which I've also had a joy to play some years ago).
