Baby, I loved my time with you and your family, as well as my time on the East Coast so much, that I wrote a song about it. Here goes:
Weep no more, my lady, Oh! weep no more to-day! We will sing one song for the old Montclair, NJ. Home, For the old Montclair, NJ. Home far away.

My dad worked on Louis' house back in the early 70s as a plumber and met him awkwardly. My dad was working in his bathroom and Louis walked in wearing a towel wanting to take a shower. He wasn't expecting my dad to be there and was startled; "holy shit! you nearly scared me to death!" "Sorry Mr. Armstrong, just fixing your sink."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 1/13/18 11:14am Brian C.:

Johnny Cash did Elvis Costello's tune "Hidden Shame" (pretty sure it's on the same album as "Without Love")

When did that trope start of the 'man with the big cigar' as a representation of someone rich and powerful? You don't hear that used anymore but it was pretty common in the latter 20th century if not much earlier...

I've always sensed that those who insist on 'steen' want to deemphasize the Semitic implications of "stine" -- hence, Levine pronounced Le-VINE, which had a moment in the 70s and 80s.

Mine is Michael Roemer’s The Plot Against Harry (filmed in 1969 but unreleased until 1989). TV Guide–style synopsis: Small-potatoes gangster out on parole tries to pick up where he left off pre-incarceration, with hilarious consequences.

great show but that version of that great george Jones" song, which he absolutely wrote has got to b retired.
Jones was a fairly prolific songwriter in the early days and that helped him stay afloat in the salad years . lots of artists did his songs. his songs are great

I'd rather be on a desert island with a BOAT, than with films (or records).

"Targets" by Peter Bogdanovich is pretty under the radar.

No doubt.

@clarke: Not a comedy at all, I’m well aware. It’s also similar to the genuinely comedic 1964 Japanese film Oh, Bomb! by Kihachi Okamoto. Plot: Yakuza boss is released from prison, only to find that his old underworld gang has gone corporate. Hilarity ensues.

Surprised to not hear Denise LaSalle, who died this week, played on WFMU. I thought Sheila might cover her, but she was busy producing an awesome tribute to France Gall.

Unseen movies: "Dangerous Beauty"---sexy historical drama about a courtesan; "Dark City"---dreamlike fantasy that came out BEFORE "The Matrix." As for '70s movies: "Scarecrow"---Pacino and Hackman in a sort of Mice & Men-style drama, don't know why it didn't become a hit.

love me some Scarecrows!!

I misspoke on the Elliott Smith reference. It's Say Yes, that the Pavement song is borrowing from, liberally
  Sat. 1/13/18 12:57pm DG:

Wow, never heard MS sing on his own. Yes, a great songwriter was in "Jacques Brel" on Broadway, also acted (in "The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane" w/Jodie Foster, speaking of unjustly-forgotten movies). He died just months after Doc Pomus, his co-writer.
