  1. I agree with Diggs about Muzik's 'way out' religious thoughts. I was witness to a thread Muzik started-shortly after becoming a mod-that went so awry in a matter of hours. I honestly could not believe what I was reading!

    I lost all respect for Muzik after that. He is a MOD after all and should be respectful of other peoples opinions, and beliefs.

  2. There was this one really cool picture somewhere of a baby so small he fit in this guys hands, but I can't seem to find it.

    Could THIS LINK be it? If not, there is another picture Anne Geddes did that might be the one.

    BTW, FOXY, I LOVE that picture, THE EYE OF GOD!! It reminds me of the opening of the movie "CONTACT" where so much distance in space is traveled only to reveal the pupil of Jodi Foster's eye. Ahh, that is one of my best movie opeinings!

  3. Well, if you listen to the full version of the song it begins with quotes from the movie, "Cool Hand Luke"...

    "What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just cant reach. So you get what we had here last week.."

    I do think that this single was released long before the album/cd release and that all profits from the song were donated to a good organization to prevent genocide?

    OHhhh by the way, if you like Civil War, you might like Zombie bye the Cranberries!

  4. I'm kind of partial to Under Fire. It's about a couple of American reporters who are covering the Nicaraguan guerrillas. It's a fictional story within a real historical event and when I saw it, it made me think, "Wow. Some of this looks like back home." Even the Spanish wasn't terribly mangled. Usually, movies set in Central America have cast members from Mexico and you immediately pick up on their heavy Mexican Spanish accent, which in turn makes the movie more bothersome. In this one, the accents are more subdued. Not really from the area, but at least not blatantly from Mexico.

    WOW COOL... Thanks XXX. You didnt google 'historically correct movies' and post a large list of movie titles. You actually took the time to explain why you recommended this movie. Very Cool! I added it to my of to be watched movies!

    Thanks again.

  5. Hmmm, depending on how many vistis you make this year to 'dog lovers anonymous' we MAY let you slide for that last c-a-t remark.

    Your overall passing grade will be determined by other DLA memebers observing your conduct at various sporting events. Just remember when your team scores, you are to sing the song... WHO LET THE DOGS OUT and then repeatedly bark like a dog! ARGH ARGH ARGH!!! Got it?

    We are watching you very closely so dont risk any of your other remaining lives by making such irrational statements about c-a-t-s! :)

  6. Does anyone know of any movies that are based on historical events but yet remain somewhat true to the actual events? If so please list them here.

    Recently, I watched Hidalgo, and I was amused-meaning I watched it long enough to see the ending credits. I didn't like it because it was just another underdog winning the race-Hollywood style. It seems all they care about what it takes to get box office numbers while sacrificing the integrity of the actual event.

    Another movie I have in my TIVO wishlist is, "Charge of the Light Brigade". Courtesy of Iron Maiden, and their song, "The Trooper" I watched this movie when I was a young pup! Nowdays, I have learned that event was NOT a gutsy "you fire your musket but I'll run you through" event but rather a military order gone terribly wrong! I will be curious to see the movie again after all these years. I am pretty sure I saw the 1936 version with Errol Flynn, so it is going to be interesting how that movie plays out the events.

    Well if you have any others to add list them here.

  7. Folks, don't trust Brian. He's just a big ole cat. :laughing:

    PS: The video is really great. What a dog!

    OMG! I need to change my avatar quick before the cat lovers check out this thread!!

    Just like Lucy, I've got some esssplaining to do! You see folks, there are two types of animals in my books...

    1) Domesticated animals: DOGS RULE in particular Golden Labs. No Mystery there!

    2) Wild Animals: LIONS RULE I dont think I could ever NOT watch a documentary about lions. I just think they are an amazing species!

    Now, just for clarification here are some scenarios that will aid you to determine on whether I am a dog lover or a LION lover....

    1) Lets say I am flying over South Africa (aka LION territory) with my trusty Golden Lab, Jake, and the plane crashes. If Jake survives, I will always be a dog lover. I remain loyal to my first love! Now if a lion tries to eat Jake, again I am loyal to my first love, even if it means killing said lion.

    2) Now if plane crashes and Jake dies in the crash. I would be sad. But then I would be very happy if a lion came up to me woke me up by licking my face, and leading me back to safety. And NO, I would not let lion eat Jake, he would get a proper burial!!

    3) All other plane crashes in all other countries/continents resulting in either the life or death of Jake, it should be known that I am and always will be a dog lover!

    ARE WE CLEAR? ::

    OMG... I am going to sing "You better shape up, eww eww eww.." all the way to the shrinks office! :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

  8. I remember that Saturday Night Live episode with the cowbell and the band playing "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" and he was banging the cowbell so hard but his fellow band members didn't like it. Then Christopher Walken came out of the recording booth and said he wanted even more cowbell.

    That was so funny! :laughing:

    You can watch that video HERE.

    If you want to download it Google 'cowbell.wmv'.

    Cheers.

  9. OK, lets see your lazy cat that does nothing but eat, sleep, and scratch up expensive leather furniture DO THIS!

    This little video clip has been known to raise ones spirits, but can lead to one dancing with their DOG while singing "Youre the one that I want" from the GREASE soundtrack! SO BE VERY CAREFUL WHILE WATCHING!!

    PS. Hey Mods, sorry, it has been awhile... does this belong in FUN AND GAMES?

    ...it's electrifying! eww eww eww

    youre the one that I want eww eww eww ....

  10. Hey Jenny, glad to hear you like the song!

    I really suck at my tie-in's at 1244am! :) I wanted to say that this song has been recently heard on 'regular' radio stations as well. By 'regular' I mean the stations that overplay songs to death, and pretty much give no airtime to new artists.

    KINK radio was playing this song well ahead of the other contenders and AND, last year had a FREE benefit concert-in Portland-to help promote childrens literacy. Anna Nalick actually performed at this concert!! (Unfortunately, I missed it.)

    In short, I really love this song too! It is nice to see that it is getting recognition.

    And hey, XXX I think she should just solve that problem by marrying me! :laughing: Their might be a little age gap but I can handle it! ::

  11. One of the great things I love about my FAVORITE local radio station is that they really remain true to their motto: "TRUE TO THE MUSIC". I can not say how much I agree with this! This station has an ear for good tunes and give new artists air play.

    Anna Nalick is a new artist that actually has a great tune called "Breathe (2 am)". If you like Tori Amos'ish music you might like this song.

    You can listen to the full song on her website...

  12. Hey Mat, you´re lucky! Brian never appears round here but now he did just to send you a message!

    Hey Mat, little does Edna know that I am a sucker for showing kids about the great outdoors! I love the outdoors, probably as much as you love Spyro the dragon! ::

    Here is another story for you. One time while I was fishing in Utah there was a small forest fire nearby! Forest fires are really hard to put out. There are no roads for fire trucks to drive on so firefighters use airplanes and helicopters to dump water on the fires.

    Here is a photo I snapped of a helicopter flying RIGHT OVER ME while I was fishing. LINK

    The helicopter was taking water to pour over the forest fire! Pretty cool huh?

    Have fun in school!

    Cheers

  13. Howdy Mat!

    So you like snow? So do I!

    I live in Portland, Oregon USA. We rarely get any snow here in the city. However, the mountains nearby get a lot of snow! In fact, most of the snow on the mountains NEVER MELTS!! Even in the SUMMER TIME!!! Pretty cool huh?

    Most of the 'cool' looking mountains around here are actually volcanoes!! Yeah, have you heard of MT St Helens? This mountain is actually a volcano about 60 miles North of Portland. Mt St Helens erupted in 1980!

    I actually hiked to the top of Mt St Helens two summers ago. Would you like to see the pictures?

    LINK This photo is of me on the rim of Mt St Helens. In the background is Mt. Rainer (another volcano). Even though this was the middle of summer there is still SNOW!!!

    LINK 2 In this photo you see the center of Mt St Helens, and the lava dome.

    Have you heard about the latest 'small' eruptions from Mt St Helens? Those eruptions actually came from the lava dome!

    If you would like to see more pictures of my hike to the top of Mt St Helens let me know! It was a very hard hike, but it was a lot of fun! ::

    Cheers!

  14. How about "Calling All Angels" by Train.

    I especially think the part that sings, "I wont give up if you dont give up." Could be of strength to you and your 'Angel' that is helping you through this ordeal.

    You are going through an unbelievably traumatic ordeal. My heart is with you.

    I think I speak for the rest of the forum when I say that if you need someone to talk to, by all means post away. We will be here for you!

  15. This was discussed quite a while ago, but I finally got around to removing the star ratings. Now if you want to see stars you'll have to use this guy: :stars:

    We're all equal. :)

    Wow, I remember that discussion. I think the majority of people voted for the star ratings though. I think since that vote, it has been proven that the ratings game has just turned into that... a game.

    Anyway, I am glad the game is gone but the stars remain! :)

  16. Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime [This is an essential CD for anyone that loves rock and roll! In true 'Floydian' style all of the tracks are stiched together and tell a story. Each track is like a chapter in a book. Whether listening to the whole album or individual tracks, this album flat out rocks, and is one of all time favorite albums.]

    Mother Love Bone - self titled

    Garden State Soundtrack (This is Amazon's current top seller so it has the ability to bring you lots of ice cream! ::)

  17. pdxchump showed you a great link... good suggestions!

    Just so ya know Edna. That link was to my very first Songfacts Post! I have always had a love hate relationship with that Paula Cole song, I LOVED the passion, vulnerability, and courage in in lyrics, and HATED the fact that it was a woman gender related song! A lot of it appealead to my life in someway. And just so you know, I crossed the bridge! ::

    Anyway, another good little song is "Three Birds" by Bob Marley. "Everything is going to be alright!"

    Cheers
