  1. Regal Cinemas has launched Regal Unlimited. This is tempting as I live a 5-minute walk away... https://www.sourceofthespring.com/business/regal-cinemas-launches-regal-unlimited-subscription-pass/
  2. Do you have one or the other or both? I have Netflix. Have had it for years. Never had Amazon Prime, now considering adding it. Other than free 2 day shipping from Amazon, what does Prime get me that I've been missing out on?
  3. I'm sure many of you know about the website imdb.com - it's a well-organized database of movies, television shows, (even old radio shows), and actors [Is it okay to say "actors" instead of "actors and actresses?"] Pick any movie you can think of, any television series you can think of - even any *episode* of any television series you can think of, and up comes an incredibly rigorous and thorough list of people associated with it. Then, if you click one of the people, you'll get every single thing they've ever done in their career. I have been using imdb for as long as I've been power-watching television series and films (films, for the first time in about twenty years), and to date, I believe that I have found *one* omission that I'm aware of. They must have reference to some sort of "official," central database of these facts, and whichever company runs this website must have dozens, if not hundreds, of employees. While it isn't like Wikipedia, in that there aren't long narratives, the two perform complementary functions: imdb is for hard facts, and Wikipedia is for the story behind many of the facts. This is the only post I can ever remember putting into two forums: Films and Television, because imdb covers both so thoroughly that it would simply be wrong to exclude either one. Remember this website - it generally comes up on Page One of Google searches. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

  6. Everyone knows what Mark Harmon looks like - he's now perhaps best known for his role as NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs in NBC's "NCIS." I stumbled across a couple of interesting things about him: His father was 1940 Heisman Trophy Winner Tom Harmon, who was also named the 1940 AP Athlete of the Year. Also, here's an early appearance of him in a 1975 episode of "Adam-12."
  7. ...is "Performance", featuring one of my favorite rock song performances, "Gone Dead Train", written by Jack Nitzsche and Russ Titelman, vocal by Randy Newman, remarkable slide guitar work by Ry Cooder. Randy Newman may never have been a great singer, but he totally nails this. If you manage to make head or tails of the lyrics, you'll discover that they're pretty filthy, which is another plus. The same soundtrack features the song "Memo from Turner", written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and sung by Jagger, in one of my favorites among his vocal performances, and also featuring the excellent Ry Cooder on slide guitar. I'm ambivalent about Mick Jagger as a singer. Hard to keep him off a list of greatest rock singers, but at the same time, his singing has always been so un-musical that it's hard sometimes to think of it as singing at all. Here is a clip from the movie, starting with "Poor White Hounddog" with a vocal by Merry Clayton (whose soaring voice you may remember from the Stones' "Gimme Shelter"), segue-ing into "Memo from Turner," which was an obvious progenitor of a thousand music videos. You'll also notice the film's other star, James Fox. "Gone Dead Train" "Memo from Turner" "Poor White Hounddog"
  8. I love 'The Abyss', one of my favorite disaster movies, I always hope that the others will spare us, for whatever reason. So much weird stuff going on, I hate going out in large crowds, & I'm trying not to make my kids paranoid.
