...permanently banned from this forum.



I would like to present to the jury, Prosecution Exhibit "A"...


Posted Image Posted Image



Above, see the signature belonging to Mr. Bergeron, a still image from the film Amélie, which in not OAR!!!

I believe the Misson Statement as well as the guidelines of this forum justify this member being banned, ridiculed, sneezed at, tarred, feathered, and forced to spell his name correctly.



Prosecution rests............

Well, I guess I'll have to speak for the defense and point out that the picture might be in its OAR, unless it's a direct screenshot.

Hey, it's in OAR. Didn't you notice the gray bars above and below the picture? Posted Image

I realize that in some posts, the bars above and below the picture are white. Posted Image

Damn! Neil beat me to it!

I don't have Amélie, but I think Seth made a couple captures for Paul Dalmaine. Maybe he could do one for you.

I have a couple more pranks up my sleeve (no more for you though, Steeve) and it is starting to occur to me that my revenge card might be getting a bit full. Posted Image

John, make sure you keep a cap of Sam Morton walking through the pane of glass for your sig rotation. I love that moment. Posted Image

Perhaps it's a publicity still from an EPK and not a screencap? Hmmm....did y'all think of that?


Acrually:
Steeve, please look into correcting this ASAP or I too will nominate that you get the boot.

You know, Fred, if you keep your sense of humor like you do, you just might make it.

I don't see that it would make any difference. It's still an abused image. SO THERE!


John, make sure you keep a cap of Sam Morton walking through the pane of glass for your sig rotation.
My first reaction was, "HUH?" Finally, I realized you actually know what film that is. I'm impressed. I expect there aren't too many others who could identify it from just that image. For that, I'm posting an mp3 of the same recording of Franz Liszt's Liebestraum #3 played by Django, Stephane and CO. that Emmett listens to in the film. It is 783K, which is as small as I could get it without any obvious artifacts. Fortunately it was mono and low-fi to start with. In case any of the "powers that be" are concerned, it is a Public Domain recording.

I haven't captured anything from the "glass" scene, but I do have this one of Sam(antha) Morton doing a pretty good Giulietta Masini impression.

Posted Image


BTW, I didn't realize it until I heard this recording, but Liebestraum #3 has essentially the same changes, and is therefore basically the same song as a particular old Jazz standard. If you (or anyone else) can name that song, I will be truly impressed. How about Vince Maskeeper? Any guesses?

Hey, someone has to be made accountable for the atrocity of putting cheese curds & gravy on french fries.

Question...how come french fries are not called frites francais(e)but pommes frites. Just a though, mind you a dumb one. Forgive me if I've incurred any spelling or masculine/feminine errors.Posted Image
I'm not nice...people just make that assumption of me.

I love that image. Federico would fall in love. A really fantastic capture.

Posted Image I keep meaning to search out some Django CDs. I really enjoyed the music in the film, and this MP3 has re-confirmed my determination to find some good recordings. Any recommendations?

Well, I don't know if it is available in the UK, but I have a single disc collection called "Verve Jazz Masters #38" and the definitive six disc collection from Mosaic. Mosaic sells mostly direct online. I don't know if they ship across the pond, but you can always check Their Web Site.

BTW, the soundtrack is probably quite good as well. It is actually Dick Hyman (who does most of Woody Allen's soundtracks) featuring the extraordinary guitarist Howard Alden. Every single one of those "popular" guitarists who get so much recognition and praise are rank amateurs by comparison.

I'm looking at the other half of John Rice's sig., the quote "What we've got here... is failure to communicate".

my only recollection of this is it was sampled and used on a Guns N' Roses song, words were spoken by a middle-aged or elderly woman, possibly African-American (from the accent). the GNR song is on one of the Use Your Illusion albums, can't remember which one or the name of the track, and I haven't got the discs with me here in the office to check.

can anyone enlighten this doofus as to which song, and where it was originally from? John? (seeing as it's your sig.)

Yeah, G'n'R used it at the beginning of their song "Civil War". It's sampled from Cool Hand Luke, the scene John has the screen capture for in his signature. I originally thought it was an elderly woman, too. The "Captain, Road Prison 36", played by Strother Martin, says it after Paul Newman's character is recaptured after an attempted prison break.

many thanks!

you mean it wasn't an elderly woman who spoke those lines? sure sounded like one. goes to show what tin-ears this noob has... Posted Image

(either that, or it's 'cos I've listened to GNR all my life on mini-compos. now that I've finally got a half-decent system, time to dust off those CDs and give them a spin again...)
