  1. The action scenes we boys will like are all of David Cronenberg's classically relentless, no-holds-barred, in-your-face sequences of brutal violence.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and felt that it carried a lot of weight in terms of its examination of the human psyche and how intertwined, positively and negatively, it can become with your family and those close to you when under sudden, extreme circumstances.

  2. I've been out of it recently, and I can't suggest anything I've bought recently this week either, because I've been out of the "music-buying phase" as of late. Trying to save up the funds for a rainy day, you know?

    Although there is a mighty interesting article about Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" recording in the latest issue of Stereophile that, if read, would help you gain a much deeper appreciation for the record.

  3. Layer Cake is a GREAT MOVIE. I've rarely seen a "beat-up" scene (involving Morty) that so accurately reflected what it's like to get the living hell knocked out of you. The editor certainly edits from experience...

    By the way, "Swingers" was directed by Doug Liman, not Guy Ritchie (Madonna's husband).

  4. The show was amazing. 3 straight hours (well ok, not counting a 15 minute intermission where the men's bathroom line was out the door! There were only like, 2 women at the whole show!) of a progressive journey from their humble beginnings in 1992 all the way to 2005.

    During each song they'd flash (on the 3 HUGE projection monitor behind them) images of that particular year, album cover, and their band photos at the time. Everyone from Derek Sherinian to Jordan Ruddess, John Petrucci to James LaBrie all in their full, leather-clad metal glory...

    The sound system at the Hollywood Pantages theater was amazing, the booze was flowing, and the crowd was as diverse as candy is at The Sweet Factory. Skater high-schoolers, collegiate prepsters, middle-aged hippies, Nascar-cap-touting families from Houston, clubgoers from Vegas...

    ...All walks of life. It was awesome stuff.
