    The Great HTF Music Challenge

    Well, I love Eric B and Rakim. Great pick, John. :D:D Reminds me of getting a couple of Maxell XL II 90s ready to go on a Friday night and taping the Red Alert show on KISS FM and then bouncing around between WBAU and WBLS. Still going strong!

    Okay, John Dirk, this one's for you: Two legends that passed in the last year or so. Biz, here with Kane and MF DOOM

    The Great HTF Music Challenge

    Sorry, not trying to be mysterious here just wondering how you found For Squirrels. My roommate at Florida was the brother of the bassist, Bill. I remember their first show (they were amazing live) and I still have the first record, which was sort of their Chronic Town. I always believed they...

    Walter Kittel, were you in Gainesville in the early-mid 90s?

    So did I when I also just watched it about a week ago. Nicholas Musuraca, no surprise.

    Crawdaddy's "Random Thoughts" about Home Video, Film & TV

    There was a DVD release of APACHE in its OAR--one of those Timeless Media double features--so the BD should be good to go.

    TWILIGHT TIME MOVIES PRESS RELEASE: It's Twilight Time For Us! Our "Goodbye" & "Gratitude" Sale

    Well, order #71073, also placed on 5/10, was packed on Sunday, picked up on Monday and is expected to arrive on Wednesday. So going by the number, there were over 1100 orders just between the time of my order and TonyD's order on the tenth. Hat tip to Twilight Time.

    Shichinin no samurai / Seven Samurai (Kurosawa, 54). I must be prone to suggestion because I saw a tweet this morning about Kurosawa's birthday and then found myself in front of this tonight. This one particularly because it had been a while since last view.

    Next 'episode' in Madigan (TV), The Midtown Beat, a title only off by about 60 blocks as the whole story takes place in Harlem. This was a wild one. Charles Durning as a racist good ol' boy, two gay hitmen after a 15-year-old kid, Cab Calloway as a doctor. Even a little bit with an uncredited...

    What's on your Daily Viewing List?

    Madigan had come up somewhere in the forum so I watched the first episode of the TV series, The Manhattan Beat, with Widmark back as Madigan, Ronny Cox playing his partner and Tony Lo Bianco as a street tough. Then the somewhat offbeat Hallelujah I'm a Bum (Milestone, 33) with its rhyming sung...

    Haha, wow, I just finished The Andromeda Strain (Wise, 71) myself. Got to hand it to Wise, the movie is super riveting for what amounts to a two hour science lab procedural. Before that it was Cloak and Dagger (Lang, 46), and I forgot how ruthless it is, even beyond just the fight between...

    What's on your Daily Viewing List?

    First up tonight was Gli specialisti / The Specialists (Corbucci, 69). Its quirks (hippies, pacifism, anti-authority), at least for a western, add rather than detract. Johnny Hallyday is pretty good for a pop star or whatever he was (I am not familiar). Then The Story of Temple Drake (Roberts...

    The other night I watched Night Has a Thousand Eyes (Farrow, 48) and The Suspect (Siodmak, 44) which, per speculation, are either both coming from Kino on BD or neither coming from Kino or maybe just one. Both would be must-buys for me. Today it was The Quiet Man (Ford, 52), which I imagine...

    International The African Queen -Masters of Cinema UK Release

    Amazingly it looks like the case is both too short (the booklet can't stand up straight inside it without forcing it) and too thin for its contents. And I have also not dared attempt putting it all back in there haha.

    Black Cherry Soda

    That looks amazing.

    Mine arrived today. As Paul warned, good luck getting it out of the slipcase.

    Hahaha yes! Well, there you go, I guess it had national distribution.

    Black Cherry Soda

    My grandmother used to have this brand when we went over to her house, White Rock. Superb black cherry and also had an excellent cream soda. Might have been strictly a NY thing?

    Crawdaddy's "Random Thoughts" about Home Video, Film & TV

    I remember the Tom Neal-Barbara Payton saga recounted in Eddie's book, DARK CITY (which everybody should get), where we got this immortal line from Payton: "He had a chemical buzz for me that sent red peppers down my thighs." So, Tom Neal with the BDE, in case that was something anybody here...

    Warner DVD's not working thread - watch to make sure they still play

    I thought Forbidden Hollywood Vol. 2 was the worst set of all-time for this garbage (I was able to put together a complete set from two different boxes that each had different discs go bad). Looks like Film Noir Vol. 4 rivals it. My WHERE DANGER LIVES / TENSION has a huge blotch on the surface...

    Night/Curse of the Demon (1957): UK or US Blu-ray?

    Well, it's not going to be a year. Someone just asked about it again, today.
