    I thought the concert would be broadcast on WQXR and then available for streaming, but it doesn't seem to be on the list of upcoming shows...

    From the Netflix documentary "The Greatest Night in Pop". This is towards the end at about 1:28. They're showing how many people are buying the We Are the World records.
     
    Well... Not EVERYBODY.
     

     
    It's alarming given how quickly this went by that seeing this was like someone shouting my name.
     
    Does anyone know what the stickers on the plastic wrap say?

    Even so, I'm sure it doesn't sit right with the inclusion people, who probably can only see the word "men"—which is apparently a bad word these days in Hollywood's writing rooms.
     
    But let's hope they understand that rebranding "X-Men" would be a colossal mistake, as you say... Then again, Disney is prone to making big mistakes, so I wouldn't put it past them!

    Agreed, but this is "Morph" we're talking about. A D-list character I'm pretty sure nobody cares about. If anyone's really upset over this, I have to ask if they just don't want a non-binary character in their X-Men.
     
    And by the way, how long until they change "X-Men" to an all-inclusive "X-People"?

    As a lifelong Hulk fan, I really dislike Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. I mean if blandness has a name, it's "Mark Ruffalo"...

    Congratulations on the 125th anniversary of Deutsche Grammophon!

    My long history with DG goes back many years, they’ve released recordings of numerous performances with Boston Symphony Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker, and with Saito Kinen Orchestra.

    To celebrate this milestone, my dearest friend John visited Japan after 30 years, joining on stage with the Saito Kinen Orchestra, my musical family.

    I’ve consistently encouraged John to experience the unique essence of the Saito Kinen Orchestra, confident that he would love it.

    This special collaboration between them in Matsumoto and Tokyo was a joy that genuinely defies expression—my longstanding dream has finally come true!

    My friend, you are simply recounting the sequence of events that took place in the film, without providing any answers to the questions we've asked concerning Darth Vader's ultimate plan. I'm starting to think that you yourself might not be so sure of what actually transpired... At least, you continually (intentionally or unintentionally) fail to express it clearly (i.e. in terms that the average person on the street would understand). 
     
    Regardless, I'd like to see your response to my take (based solely on memory, as I haven't watched the film for a few years). My understanding is that Jedi have been shown to experience premonitions of future events through the Force. By this point in the film, Vader knew Luke was his son, that he was strong in the Force (from the end of Episode IV), and even told the Emperor he could be turned into a useful ally (implying that he was strong enough in the Force to be effective on the dark side). Armed with this information, and provided the location of the Millennium Falcon by Boba Fett, Vader and his forces took control of Cloud City and tortured Han and Leia (asking no questions), confident enough that Luke would sense their peril through the Force (regardless of his training with Yoda) in order to draw Luke to their location and Vader would capture him (trapping him in carbonite, which had been successfully tested on Han).

    I happen to own an orchestra, so the dots are worth something to me. Please forward all original music sheets with dots on them to my address...

    I believe that Matessino is slowly working on it, and I'm holding my breath for a 2027 release, for the 50th anniversary of Star Wars.

    You claim the discussion is boring, but what examples have you cited to substantiate this claim?
     
    I submit that your inability to derive enjoyment from this discussion stems from a fundamental misreading of Star Wars and an inability to grasp its contextual subtleties.
     
    But what do you think this discussion means?

    All we had planned was submerging Mattris' hand in water while he slept to see what happens.
