Out of the Blue

I watched the 10th anniversary edition of Reservoir Dogs yesterday, which has resulted in a peculiar side-effect. Since watching, the song Like a Virgin keeps running through my head. As disturbing as it is to find a wretched Madonna song haunting one's subconscious, this is that much worse. First, because the song itself doesn't actually play at any point in the movie, its invasion seems that much more insidious. Second, the context of the discussion of the tune in the movie just keeps conjuring up unfortunate imagery. *Shudder*.

You should get Permanent by JD (which will set you back all of about $5) for a good overview

I'll have to check that out. Thanks!

w00t. Will be purchasing. It also seems like they'll be touring...

You should get Permanent by JD (which will set you back all of about $5) for a good overview. Tracks like Transmission, She's Lost Control or Atmosphere are (in my opinion) better than anything NO has ever done. NO up to '87 is fine, and then it all goes a bit rubbish. Never heard them live, so can't comment about that

new cure album??? cool!
I keep meaning to pick up the B-sides box set they brought out a couple of months back too.


Artwork is here (under the CD section):
http://www.musictap.net/Archives/Posts/Posts04/ArchivalPosts2004May1622.html

I've got that box set and I keep meaning to listen to it (I buy a hell of a lot faster than I have time to listen). It's a nice box, with a full color book in the middle. The tracks list itself seems pretty comprehensive.


Joy Division > New order.

I've never actually heard any JD. NO is good, but very hit and miss. When they're ON, they're great, and when they're OFF, it's like "What is this shit?". Their last album (Get Ready) while good (maybe even great), sounded NOTHING like a NO album (and more like an Electronic album).

Also, NO live ranks up there with nine inch nails live, from a vocal standpoint. The music sounds great, but the vocalist (in both cases) sound like they've had one too many drinks, and vocally kinda run all over the place. (They both sound great in the studio, but live is not the best way to hear them.)

BTW, Enahs, try PVC pants instead. They're a lot hotter to wear, but they don't pinch your junk. Plus you get to meet girls with low self esteem that are easily manipulated by Morrisey songs.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I am gonna pass. I did not want the leather ones in the first place, I was just humoring someone.


Besides the only pipe I like in my pants is my own! *rimshot*

My soon-to-be-new-home has a medium sized deck.

But as long as it keeps the girlfriend happy.

Right now I've been on a Matthew Sweet streak. Ever listen to him?

I've heard a few songs, but that's it...

New Cure album next month BTW...doubt it'll top Bloodflowers, but they can try.

You handle the Cure, I'll dig out the New Order...

There was a joke? Personally I only wish I had a nice deck, so I guess I have deck envy.


It would probably really depress me if I didn't have such a huge penis.

This was so funny I spontaneously sent you an email.

Is that a Cure reference AND a New Order reference, all in one sentence?

I'd dig out my Cure stuff and start listening to it again if it wasn't so FREAKING DEPRESSING!

Saw him live once - at the old basketball stadium at my university. Worst acoustics EVAR!

I have a nice deck - - 12x12, made out of Trex. It's great stuff: Looks new all the time, no rot, no paint, and in the winter it soaks up the sun's rays and melts off all the snow (Well, it might need a little help if there's more than a few inches). If any of you replace your deck, I highly recommend it!

That's one intense movie. I remember after watching it lying in bed and not sleeping. I couldn't quit thinking about a couple of the scenes.

I saw something on Dinner for Five where a director talked about the old actor who played the "boss" in the movie being one of the most unpleasant people ever to work with. I was wondering if Tarantino mentions anything about him in the director's commentary.

Speaking of NY-region football; that Jets stadium plan looks interesting; lots of nifty environmental bitz.

There's a man out there I haven't seen in 15 years who's trying to kill me.

Me either. Not a Tarantino fan though; didn't like Pulp Fiction, for example, whilst many many many people have a differing opinion. <shrug>
