Every Wide Release of 1980 - Ranked

Over the course of 2020, my podcast co-hosts and I watched and reviewed all 168 domestic wide releases from 1980 on their 40th anniversaries. If anything appears to be missing, (Superman 2, Watcher in the Woods) it probably didn’t release wide in the U.S. until 1981. What follows is my personal ranking for the year and a bite-size summary of each film. Links to longer reviews are available in the comments.


#168 - Falling In Love Again

You wouldn't think that a script about a mid-life crisis written by an 18-year-old would be any good, and you'd be right.

#167 - Home Movies

Brian De Palma taught a film class and invited his students to write and produce a feature film. De Palma directed and called in favors from Kirk Douglas, Keith Gordon, and his then-wife Nancy Allen to star.

#166 - Loose Shoes

A collection of very low-budget comedy sketches from SNL alumni and adjacents. Mostly famous for an early appearance from Bill Murray.

#165 - Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown and friends head overseas, unsupervised, as foreign exchange students and uncover long lost details of Charlie's family history. Poorly animated, even for a Peanuts movie, and the last nail in the coffin for traditionally animated Peanuts films.

#164 - Running Scared

Two servicemen (Ken Wahl and Judge Reinhold) wrap up a tour of duty in Panama and stumble across plans for the Bay of Pigs invasion and are mistaken for foreign spies.

#163 - Middle Age Crazy

Wrongheaded mid-life crisis "comedy" starring Bruce Dern. A man worried about his age buys a luxury car and cheats on his wife to feel young again and we are expected to sympathize with him.

#162 - Nothing Personal

Romantic comedy that inexplicably features actual footage of baby seals being clubbed. It’s embarrassing box office performance prevented Suzanne Somers from doing a second movie for 14 years.

#161 - First Family

Buck Henry is usually a terrific comedy writer, and the cast of this film are inarguably the funniest working actors and actresses of the time, but this misfires hard.

#160 - Up the Academy

An 80s teen comedy so bad that Mad Magazine took their name off it. Rick Baker provides a stunningly accurate and equally disturbing Alfred E Newman makeup job that bookends the film.

#159 - Loving Couples

Insanely the first of two wife-swapping comedies on the year to star Shirley MacLaine. This one's worse. Stars James Coburn, Susan Sarandon, and Stephen Collins.

#158 - The Hearse

Second haunted house

The inspiring theft of Bob Dylan

Literally no other artist has stolen from older sources so shamelessly yet wonderfully like Bob, and I love him for it. Every song he touches and writes out of an older song is always better than what came before, he really has an reason for every theft.

I've lately been searching for material he might have stolen, and the people i've shown it to have been quite shocked sometimes, increasingly losing some respect for one of the greatest songwriter of all time, and it's a shame, 'cause many people forget the context of the results that came out of his potential thefts. Here in this post I wanna share much of what I've found, not to try to ruin Bob's status, but inspire others in how to reconstruct things in the best possible way in life, and show the greatest examples an musician or artist can ever follow for greatness.

Read everything here if you'd like to, but if you don't have the time or the desire, I recommend reading about the songs you are the most interested in. I use big letters to mark the various songs here too to make it easier to find something you might like. I especially recommend reading the 6 Songs part if you want an good sort of introduction to what this is all about pretty quickly compared to the rest.


Bob usually shares some self awareness and information when it comes to the theft of his art, and so this makes some cases likelier and more easy to prove, while some are completely random similarities one can find anywhere, but which may hold some relevance in case Bob has found the same things before writing something we now know.

MEET ME IN THE MORNING - Bob Dylan (1975) I GOT TO GO - Little Walter (1950s)

Both songs feature common blues chord progressions which are used in thousands of songs, so this isn't really an special example, but what is more interesting is the similarities which can be found in the lyrics, which I heard the other day:

( Meet me in the morning, 56th and Wabasha

Meet me in the morning, 56th and Wabasha

Honey we could be in Kansas

By the time the snow begins to thaw )

( Leavin' in the morning, baby you know I got to go

Leavin' in the morning, you know I got to go

You say you don't love me

I can't live here no more )


BLIND WILLIE MCTELL - Bob (1983) SAINT JAMES INFIRMARY - ( Old blues standard )

Bob's song is an masterpiece, one of the greatest songs ever written imo, and since it's like an tribute to an blues legend and mus

Trouble in Mind (1985) - MAP: 68.25/100

IMDb / Wikipedia / Criterion Channel

From Criterion: In a down-and-out corner of Rain City - a mysterious, moody metropolis that seems to exist partly in the future, partly in the past - a collection of social cast-offs are drawn together by fate, among them just-out-of-prison former cop Hawk (Kris Kristofferson), his old flame (Genevieve Bujold), and a defenseless young woman (Lori Singer), whom Hawk attempts to rescue from her gangster husband (Keith Carradine). Alan Rudolph brings a fog-shrouded romanticism to the dreamlike reworking of classic noir, which also features a rare non-drag appearance by John Waters muse Divine as the world-weary crime boss Hilly Blue.

((Is it just me or was that a lot of hyphenated words? I mean, Criterion descriptions are silly with hyphenated words but this one just feels especially so… just saying))

Holy cow - $3M to make / $19,632 on the take? That’s about the worst box office bomb I’ve seen! Conversely, an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes suggests a good movie… I’d need to do more than a simple, quick look over to see what went wrong - maybe the studio buried it. Who knows? The movie itself is terrible, full of ridiculous noir cliches, bad costuming and make up, questionable acting - the works. I enjoyed it deeply.

Filmed on the outskirts of Seattle, the film has a strange mash up of old Hollywood glam, 80’s music video dystopian road warrior style, and an indescribable ((waves hands in the air)) something. Looking backward and forwards at the same time makes for some interesting visual entertainment for sure. The project isn’t David Lynch-esque but you do get the impression he’s likely watch it at some point.

Kris Kristofferson gives his usual performance - gruff, mumbling and steely-eyed, I really used to dislike him but I’ve grown attached in recent years. Keith Carradine goes through a bizarre transformation as his character shifts from down-on-his luck nature boy to hard-boiled city crook… seriously, you need to see it to fully understand. Lori Singer seems to be doing her level best to look like Daryl Hannah’s Ayla in Clan of the Cave Bear except that movie didn’t come out until 1986! The high point was Divine’s out-of-drag appearance as the underworld kingpin Hilly Blue. That alone probably tells you everything you need to k

The Past, Present, and Future of ‘Lone Star’

Taken from: https://www.theringer.com/movies/2021/6/21/22542725/lone-star-john-sayles-texas-cop-chris-cooper-matthew-mcconaughey

By Adam Nayman Jun 21, 2021

“It’s not like there’s a line between the good people and the bad people.”

Lone Star centers on a hero navigating that hypothetical divide like a high-wire act—a cop on a thin-blue tightrope. After initially departing the parched Texan border town of Rio County for the greener pastures of San Antonio, Sam Deeds (Chris Cooper) returned to run for sheriff on the strength of his DNA; back in the 1960s, his father Buddy (Matthew McConaughey) was a local hero, flashing an untarnished golden badge and an easy, matinee-idol smile as emblems of state and moral authority. Sam’s campaign slogan—“One Good Deeds Deserves Another”—leaned heavily on the idea of family branding, but there’s no shade for a prodigal son in his daddy’s shadow, and no future either. As the film opens, the character is contemplating abandoning his post, but after some old bones are unexpectedly exhumed in the desert, Sam finds himself growing naturally into the role he’d rejected—and learning more than he’d like to know about the good, bad, and ugly particulars of his hometown.

In 1996, Lone Star felt like a self-conscious throwback by a filmmaker who’d made a career of hopping between genres. It was a tricky, noir-tinged Western steeped in swift, glancing allusions to cultural, military, and filmic history. The film got the acclaim it deserved, including an Academy Award nomination for its original script, but didn’t claw its way into the canon like its Oscar-night rival Fargo, a movie with more of a flair for the absurd that could nevertheless be its bizarro twin.

Twenty-five years later, Lone Star is as much of a relic as the bleached remains that figure into its stark, mysterious cold open: a fluid, literate, and politically complex (as opposed to programmatic) independent American movie that respects its audience’s intelligence and fulfills an appetite for moral, intellectual, and ideological ambiguity. Over and over throughout the movie, Sam listens patiently while old-timers tell him that they “broke the mold” when they made his dad—the man has been immortalized in a bronze statue outside city hall. (Sam doesn’t smile when he looks at it.) And while there’s nothing necessarily mold-breaking about Lone Star’s basic setup or style—certainly not when compared to other entries in the modern neo-noir cycle, bookended in the ’80s a

I watched Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1974)

Understated and anticlimactic, but endearing and engaging, I think modern “mumblecore” movies like Frances Ha owe a debt to this overlooked film.

Ellen Burstyn stars as Alice, an eccentric middle-aged mom who makes a daring effort to restart her life as a musician after her husband dies. She’s a smart-assed small-town protagonist with an unusual son, a tank of gas, plenty of grit and dreams of a place called Monterey (California).

The two of them hit the road in their overloaded station wagon, meeting a very young Jodie Foster and a very creepy Harvey Keitel on their cash-strapped adventures. It’s part road-trip movie, part epic-saga proto-feminist journey, with its own signature eccentric charm. Diane Ladd and Kris Kristofferson costar in memorable roles.

Martin Scorsese directed this film as the result of a studio contract technicality, and the long-running sitcom “Alice” was a spin-off, but it would make sense that this movie is easily disregarded by diehard fans of any specific genre. Scorsese’s direction provides beautiful pacing and draws remarkable performances from the actors, and the loudmouth diner banter of the sitcom “Alice” has its obvious roots here, but Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore has its own distinct character that’s difficult to classify.

Why does current pop music seem so "whiny" to me?

TLDR: Has pop music style changed recently so it sounds whiny to old-ass fuckers like me?


When I listen to current pop music - especially by males - it often seems decidedly "whiny" to me. Like they're complaining moreso than emoting, or complaining about irrelevant matters, or matters that require a different response. But it isn't really the content. They're just love songs, like many many before.

Before you have a go at me - when I say "whiny", I'm not trolling. I know it's not their personality, it's just some style choice. I just don't have a better word for it.

It may just be that I'm getting old (late 40s). Obviously music styles change; people - not so much. Especially if they don't actively follow current trends. If that's it, I would like to know precisely what changed so it seems whiny to me.

It's definitely not because I'm used to emotionless music. I've been a big fan of Leonard Cohen for almost all my life. I grew up on Pete Seeger and Kris Kristofferson, adored Simon and Garfunkel - on the female side, used to love Tori Amos, Alanis Morrissette ("WHINY canadian bitch"), Suzanne Vega. I'm definitely not against emotions in pop music.

Since I don't actively listen to current music, my selection is obviously very eclectic. Just what I hear on the radio when someone else puts it on. It's entirely possible that music on the whole really hasn't changed, but just the segment I get to hear by chance.

I have a suspicion it's a distinct change in notes, pitch, harmonies, style - but I lack the knowledge of music theory to describe it. Intonation seems to play a role. It seems to me like they all add some addtional tiny "eek" to some notes, if that makes sense. Most of the guys seem rather high-pitched. Then again, so do some that don't seem so whiny to me - see list below.

For reference, here are a few that stick out to me:

Sam Smith, Stay with me - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-5XG-DbAA
Bruno Mars, Marry you - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xdyRsGOl6U
Ruel, She - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnvcFlO23lA

A few counter-examples - somehow they don't seem whiny to me:

Ed Sheeran, I see fire - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fngvQS_PmQ
Gotye, Somebody that I used to know - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UVNT4wvIGY
Snow Patrol, Set the fire... - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfa9yxCpWoA


Oh, and I want to note - I don't say any of those are bad singers. It's just... something about them makes me cringe, a

Soundtrack is Full of Hints

I've been obsessively listening to the soundtrack over and over (as well as having the seasons on continuously in the background while coding) and have noticed a lot of hints in the selection and lyrics of the music. I won't give them away here other than to mention my favorite: Highwayman. I'm not a big country fan, but I actually listened to the words and was blown away that this country song clearly is about multiple lives (reincarnation). Keep in mind the first time you hear it is when Dom starts to put her makeup on looking in the mirror.

Ok, another one, Genesis "take me home, cuz I don't remember".

A lot of others are about dreaming.

In fact, every fucking song seems to have been specifically picked for the lyrics in some way related to the meta-story.

Here's Highwayman:

Willie Nelson:

I was a highwayman

Along the coach roads I did ride

With sword and pistol by my side

Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade

Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade

The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five

But I am still alive.

Kris Kristofferson

I was a sailor

I was born upon the tide

And with the sea I did abide.

I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico

I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow

And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed

But I am living still.

Waylon Jennings:

I was a dam builder

Across the river deep and wide

Where steel and water did collide

A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado

I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below

They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound

But I am still around

I'll always be around, and around and around and around and around...

Johnny Cash:

I'll fly a starship

Across the Universe divide

And when I reach the other side

I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can

Perhaps I may become a highwayman again

Or I may simply be a single drop of rain

But I will remain

And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again.

-----

Back in 2017 NPR released their list of the 150 greatest albums released by women and at the top of that list was Joni Mitchell’s Blue. While an amazing gesture, made only greater by seeing some of the women placed bellow her (which includes the likes of Nina Simone, Patti Smith, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Carole King, Beyoncé and Lauryn Hill among others) it’s an odd choice to put her at the top of this list. Not because Blue is an unworthy album but being the top of a gender focused list seems so very un-Mitchell. During her 1979 interview with Rolling Stone’s Cameron Crowe where he asks if Mitchell had any close female friends she declares “I believe I am male and I am female,” a strange dichotomy brought on by the very male world of folk songwriting of the late 60’s and her own natural distrust of other women she regarded to earlier in that same question. Part of the charm of Mitchell’s music is that she is able to write songs and lyrics that exist in this complete vacuum devoid of our notions of class, race and sex. Yet in a lot of ways Mitchell’s removal of gender, of writing without an atypical “female voice,” may make her music some of the most important for women. Her refusal to fall into tropes, into cliché, into the things we as a society equate to as “feminine elements” in music only strengthens it when people reflect themselves in her words, particularly the struggles she had faced growing up and growing up fast. The plights, pratfalls and joys in her music have a universal appeal, it makes it easier to see ourselves in her songs.

Mitchell’s as influence on Rock in Canada looms large,

Hopper's Taste in Music

Based on that episode in season 2 when we get a quick peek at his record collection, we know that Hopper listens to Jim Croce and Supertramp. What other bands/artists do you think Hopper was into? I just thought it would be fun to speculate, so I've included my list below of who I think Hopper would listen to on his record player or on a cassette tape while driving down the road in his blazer.

  • Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young)
  • Led Zeppelin
  • The Rolling Stones
  • Kris Kristofferson
  • Waylon Jennings
  • Willie Nelson (I just feel like he would have been into the whole Outlaw Country genre)
  • Johnny Cash
  • Bob Seger
  • The Flying Burrito Brothers
  • Boz Scaggs
  • Jackson Browne
  • The Eagles (maybe)

Feel free to add your suggestions or if you disagree with the list I've made

Thoughts on Huston’s Fat City (1972)?

Just streamed this movie on Amazon Prime (more like rented) last night and wow am I blown away. Conrad Hall’s cinematography, Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make it Through the Night”, amazing performances by Stacy Keach, Susan Tyrrell, and a young Jeff Bridges all setting the tone for this minimalistic film of broken dreams and failed heroes in Stockton, CA.

Can anyone recommend other movies similar in this vein of American 70’s cinema? Also, seeing how Huston’s other films such as Wise Blood and Under the Volcano are in the collection, any hope of this film getting the criterion treatment? It so desperately calls for it.

If the Greatest (American) Seasons were the Greatest (American) Albums

Borneo/Dust Bowl Ballads

The OG (concept album, season of survivor). "Oh," I hear you saying, "so that means it isn't good on its own terms, and we should only listen to/watch it because it's the original of it's kind?" Wrong, you fool. Just because it set the agenda for everything to come doesn't mean it doesn't stand on its own right -- it does (for example, the Gretchen Boot is "Tom Joad" parts 1 and 2; "Vigilante Man" is Snakes and Rats).

Australia/Like a Prayer

It's natural to think back to Australia/Like a Prayer and regard them as good-for-their-time, fresh-in-their-context, but pretty well outdated. What's the use of either in our moment? Okay, except the first half of Like a Prayer (Like a Prayer, Express Yourself, Love Song) and Australia (Deb! Maralyn! Kel/Beef Jerky!) are still bangers. The emotional heart of each comes right in the middle: Cherish/the [redacted] episode. Sure, each slows down in the second half, but both even the second half has great moments (e.g., Australia: More than a Game; Like a Prayer: Oh Father, Spanish Eyes)

Marquesas/Innervisions

Each is characterized by perfect storytelling that runs beginning to end, each is an ideal example of sustained treatments, beginning to end. "Living for the City" (one of the most innovative soul songs of all time) is the Hunter boot (one of the most epic and innovative episodes ever, in terms of strategy).

Pearl Islands/Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

An epic opener; one of Elton's most memorable songs (Goodbye Yellow Brick Road) is one of Survivor's most memorable players (Rupert). The season and the album alike are fast-paced all the way through. Both even have two-time winners! (Sandra and…you'll figure it out)

Vanuatu/Abbey Road

By reputation, the second half is miles and miles ahead of the first; in fact, the second half is the best second half of any album/Survivor season ever. But when you go back to the first half you realize how much fun it is anyway. Each just about marks the end of an era (I consider Palau the end of traditional survivor and Let it Be was the end of the Beatles)

Palau/Born to Run

Bruce has happier albums than the happiest bits of Born to Run (Wild, Innocent, E Street Shuffle), just like Survivor has had funnier and more energetic bits than the start of Palau. And Bruce got darker (esp. Nebraska, the River), as would Survivor. But each is an exemplary tragedy because no Bruce album/Survivor season more beautifully captures a des

I watched Heaven's Gate (1980)

Emphasis on spoilers.

So this movie is famous for being this out of control project by director Michael Cimino who also directed The Deer Hunter, considered to be one of the greatest war films of all time. Cimino was considered a rising star as one of Hollywood's finest young talents along with Spielberg, Scorsese, Coppola and others. After winning several academy awards, critics and audiences alike were looking forward to his next project which turned out to be his undoing. It also helped usher in the return of the era of studio control as it they have done before the 1960's ending the era of "New Hollywood". Watching Heaven's Gate, it is easy to see why. '

Now, it is unfair to blame studio takeover on Cimino. That was inevitable especially after the box office successes of Jaws and Star Wars. The original run time was about 3 hours and 40 minutes which the studio wanted cut. Cimino avoided getting fired by editing down the film itself. The result was one of of the biggest financial flops in motion picture history, earning $3.5 million of its $44 million dollar budget. The film nearly drove United Artists into financial ruin. Critics universally hated it. In recent years the film was restored to its intended length and released on The Criterion Collection. The critics have warmed up to it, but the general consensus is the film is mediocre and I will have to agree with them.

The story behind the production is much more interesting than the plot itself. There was constant reshoots, Cimino feeling the street was too narrow so he had the entire set torn down and moved three feet away, ignoring the more sensible advice of just moving one side six feet to the left. He had a irrigation system built under a field so the grass would look green to contrast the blood during the battle scene. You won't even notice it since there is so much smoke. Musicians and actors would wait in hotel rooms for their parts, some would never come. John Hurt actually found time to go and shoot The Elephant Man during production. He, like many actors in the film appeared lost and confused on screen.

***SPOILER BELOW****

The plot was based on the Johnson County War, a real life struggle between the Cattle Barons and the Homesteaders in Johnson County, Wyoming during the late 1880's and early 1890's. The conflict was over water rights which resulted in many deaths. This was depicted in several films such as Shane (1953) and several others. I recommend Shane by the

i saw two movies (Venom, A Star Is Born)

the first one was Venom

i didn't really know what to think after trailers for this started coming out. to start with, there was the Spider-Man movie that shall not be named. and there was also the huge amount of Marvel fans that were really betting on this movie being shit. i always try to keep an open mind, so i went in with no expectations.

journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is trying to take down Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation. while investigating one of Drake's experiments, Eddie's body merges with the alien Venom, leaving him with superhuman strength and power. twisted, dark and fueled by rage, Venom tries to control the new and dangerous abilities that Eddie finds so intoxicating.

believe it or not, i thought this was alright. with the type of story that's the movie tells, it's sort of like a way, way better version of Catwoman. i mean, just think about it: both movies feature lead characters trying to get control over their special abilities, while also attempting to stop a bunch of criminals in the process. the difference is, Catwoman failed on every single aspect of being a good superhero movie, and this one actually succeeds at a couple of those elements.

Tom Hardy was instantly likable as the lead. and it's a character that you really feel for when some shit happens to him. he basically fucks his entire life up within the span of a single day.

luckily, though, it all might be a blessing in disguise. after the whole mishap in the science lab that causes him to be infected by Venom, they slowly but surely begin a bromance. an adorable one, at that. with Hardy being able to hear Venom's voice in his head, it causes them to have these comedic little back-and-forth arguments like schoolchildren. there's even a little breakup moment between them in the middle section.

it's also kinda cool how they expand on what this creature is, and how it can affect the human body. there's one moment where it's being tested on a patient at the lab. all of the sudden, he starts spazzing out and his limbs start getting moved around and crushed. that was a legitimately intense and suspenseful scene.

they're not afraid to get dark with this character, either. it can easily snap/eat heads right off of people. and, get this, it even has a taste for little doggos. but, Venom also becomes a little more lighthearted and sweet as the movie goes on. he tak

TIL That Caitlyn/Bruce Jenner was almost cast as Superman in 1977

As taken from this entry on the Superman: The Movie Casting of Superman section on the casting of Superman before they finally settled on Christopher Reeve.

EDIT - Going to add that the link fucked up due to the (1978 film) part of the link, hopefully it works now

EDIT 2 - Sorry everyone, can't seem to get the link working to the actual Wikipedia page, here's the section in full:

"It was initially decided to first sign an A-list actor for Superman before Richard Donner was hired as director. Robert Redford was offered a large sum, but felt he was too famous. Burt Reynolds also turned down the role, while Sylvester Stallone was interested, but nothing ever came of it. Paul Newman was offered his choice of roles as Superman, Lex Luthor or Jor-El for $4 million, turning down all three roles.

When it was next decided to cast an unknown actor, casting director Lynn Stalmaster first suggested Christopher Reeve, but Donner and the producers felt he was too young and skinny. Over 200 unknown actors auditioned for Superman.

Olympic champion Bruce Jenner had auditioned for the title role. Patrick Wayne was cast, but dropped out when his father John Wayne was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

Both Neil Diamond and Arnold Schwarzenegger lobbied hard for the role, but were ignored. James Caan, James Brolin, Lyle Waggoner, Christopher Walken, Nick Nolte, Jon Voight, and Perry King were approached. Kris Kristofferson and Charles Bronson were also considered for the title role.

James Caan said he was offered the part but turned it down. "I just couldn't wear that suit."

"We found guys with fabulous physique who couldn't act or wonderful actors who did not look remotely like Superman," creative consultant Tom Mankiewicz remembered. The search became so desperate that producer Ilya Salkind's wife's dentist was screen tested.

Stalmaster convinced Donner and Ilya to have Reeve screen test in February 1977. Reeve stunned the director and producers, but he was told to wear a "muscle suit" to produce the desired muscular physique. Reeve refused, undertaking a strict physical exercise regime headed by David Prowse (SELF EDIT - He wore the Darth Vader costume in the original Star Wars films). Prowse had wanted to portray Superman, but was denied an audition by the filmmakers because he was not American. Prowse also auditioned for Non. Reeve went from 188 to 212 pounds during pre-production and filming."

[ROLEPLAY] ! Extreme Instability !

[Rapid City Journal (RCJ) - January 21st Edition] (https://i.imgur.com/kAFTDme.png)


1965–1970: Early career Influenced by early-rock-and-roll and rhythm-and-blues artists, including groups such as The Beatles, The Drifters and The Four Seasons, he favored tightly-structured pop melodies and down-to-earth, unpretentious songwriting.[20]

After seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, Joel decided to pursue a career in music. In an interview he said of the group's impact, "That one performance changed my life … Up to that moment I'd never considered playing rock as a career. And when I saw four guys who didn't look like they'd come out of the Hollywood star mill, who played their own songs and instruments, and especially because you could see this look in John Lennon's face – and he looked like he was always saying: 'F--- you!' – I said: 'I know these guys, I can relate to these guys, I am these guys.' This is what I'm going to do – play in a rock band'."[21]

Joel joined the Echoes,[22] a group that specialized in British Invasion covers. The Echoes began recording in 1965. Joel (then 16) also played piano on several records released through Kama Sutra Productions and on recordings produced by Shadow Morton. Joel played on a demo version of "Leader of the Pack", which would become a major hit for the Shangri-Las.[23] Joel states that in 1964 he played on a recording of the Shangri-Las' "Remember (Walking in the Sand)" but he is unaware of whether he played on the demo or master version;[24] The released single included a co-producer credit for Artie Ripp,[25] who later was the first to sign and produce Joel as a solo artist after Michael Lang, who had given Joel a monetary advance, passed Joel along to Ripp to focus his attentions elsewhere instead.[26]

In late 1965, the Echoes changed their name to the Emeralds and then to the Lost Souls. Joel left the band in 1967 to join the Hassles, a Long Island group that had signed with United Artists Records.[27] Over the next year and a half they released four singles and two albums (The Hassles and Hour of the Wolf). All were commercial failures. Joel and drummer Jon Small left the Hassles in 1969 to form the duo Attila, releasing an eponymous debut album in July 1970. The duo disbanded the following October when Joel began an affair with Small's wife, Elizabeth, whom Joel eventually married.[28]

The Phantom Tollbooth

As readers of the empaths area, people here certainly know of the gift. There are many people who have gone about their lives creating art, music, and writing from an empathic view. I personally paint and make pottery. If you saw my artwork you might recognize the subtle quality of joy underlining my work. Working as an artist can be miserable because it requires marketing this gift.

I would like to hear more "semi famous" names you feel could be empaths too. Please be specific as possible so others can find and read/listen/support their work. Of course if you listen to music on some free streaming service or the radio you get the selection of 'popular' songs rather than 'empathic' songs.

It is amazing how slowly Selleck ages compared to ther cast of tv show

Have you all noticed how relatively young Selleck still looks? It is so weird to see other memebrs of the cast so old now, and him being so young looking in comparison. There must be something in the genes of people from south. Other actors like Kurt Russel, Kris Kristofferson and other cow boys in movie industry all look quote the same, even if they have already reached the senior citizen's age.

Movie Dicks for August 22nd, 2017: "Hicksploitation"

In the wake of the popular of the blaxploitation film in the early 1970s, the studios sought to replicate that success by taking the same type of anti-establishment sentiment and moving it into the South. It was called:

#Hicksploitation

Actually, it had many names – hixsploitation, whitesploitation, rednecksploitation – just a whole bunch of 'sploitation going on. They featured good ole boys who have to take on the corruption of the law (and sometimes the town itself). We begin with Mr. Chuck Norris. He's a truck driver who must fight corruption – with his fists! Next, when crimes rises, what do you do? If you're Jan-Michael Vincent, you bring in your brother Kris Kristofferson to smash some heads! Finally, it was one of the most successful independent films of all time. It is the story of a half-Indian ex-Green Beret who must protect a hippie school from the local townsfolk. So get out your moonshine and overalls for Movie Dicks tonight!
 
The show begins at 8:00 PM CDT in the PreRec Twitch chat.

My journey through the weirdest corners of country music.

I grew up listening to country music it is by far my favorite genre and also one of my favorite subjects to talk about. sadly though around the mid 2000's mainstream country music started to suck all around the songs became all the same and it all became way to poppy so I went and tried to find stuff that sounded more like the stuff I grew up on. This journey lead me throughout the entire history of country music during it I found many strange songs and connections and since I am bored and slightly drunk I will share them with you now in no perticular order.


LSD by Wendell Austin this may be one of the most catchy songs out there it is also one of the strangest. LSD was record sometime in the 1960's by Wendell Austin a man who never really went on to ever do anything else in fact the only other songs I can find by him are on the B-sides of LSD. In any case this anti drug song became a kind of cult hit due to its catchyness and is the only thing anyone really remembers about the guy.


The life of Hasil Adkins, Hasil Adkins was a small time country rockabilly singer most famous for being batshit insane. most of his songs are about sex, chickens, and decapitation his most famous being Shw said, Adkins would stay up for weeks strait living off of nothing but coffee and chicken while living in an abandoned bus in west Virginia. He was know get into shootouts with anyone who trespassed on his land until he died by being run over with a ATV in 2005. He is also credited with creating the psychobilly subgenre after recoreding himself atemping to sing his song "No more hot dogs" after staying up for three weeks straight The results were creepy


The life of Blaze Foley, Blaze Foley was a bum who lived in Austin Texas. He lived out of his car and wore a suit made out of duct tape at times. because of this many people thought he was insane and he may of been but he also wrote some of the best country songs ever made such as Clay Pigeons and political songs such as Oval Room. Foley was shoot and killed in 1989 only a handful of recordings exist of Foley after the master tapes of 3 unreleased albums went missing, 1 was los

CD Review: Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan

Hey there r/Music. I have a unlimited music service with my cell phone company and decided to give some recent albums a download and a-listenin'. Typically when I hear a shitty album, I delete it and move on. Shitty Bob Dylan cover albums are a dime-a-dozen, so if I'm here writing a review of it, there's gotta be something else to it, right?

YES. There is.

I am a Bob Dylan fan. There I said it, now the healing can begin. Anyways, I'm actually writing this review, and telling you wonderful people this, because I actually care. So without further adieu, let's talk about the music.

I looked over the song list and the artist list and decided to check it out. On paper, it almost looks good. You've got performances by Sting, Mark Knopfler, The Nightwatchmen (Tom Morello's band), My Morning Jacket (Calexico has done some outstanding Bob Dylan songs, but we'll cover that later), Queens of the Stone Age, Lenny Kravitz, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, Joe Perry, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Jeff Beck, Dave Matthews Band.

It almost sounds great. But let's cover some more ground here. This CD, titled Chimes of Freedom: 50 Years of Bob Dylan, is a CD put out to aid Amnesty International. It was released January of 2012. It might have sold 40,000 copies.

Let's discuss why. In short, it fucking sucks. It's one of the most uninspired pieces of garbage, and I feel that every artist who put their name on it and contributed to it, has failed in their job, to be artistic and expressive in their chosen profession. This is strange, to be honest, because most of the artists I listed, tend to give very spirited performances.

I think being asked to do a Bob Dylan cover is probably one of the highest honers a band might receive. Everyone has to do a Dylan song at some point. It's a time to knock it out of the park, let it rip with everything you got, and if at no other point in your life you don't do it, this is one time to really dig deep and give it all you got.

Not one fucking band. Not ONE FUCKING BAND on a four disc set did that. Not one. There is not one song, on that miserable piece of shit album, is worth listening to. Not even the one track that was performed by Dylan himself. Not even the one by Kris Kristofferson or Johnny Cash. Not one.

My god man, I can find at least one good song on a Cage the Elephant album, or a fucking Foster the People album. This was a four disc set. So if each album had ONE good song on it,

I was given a large vinyl collection by my in-laws. I’ve taken what I wanted to keep and am now sharing the wealth. A lot of the sleeves aren’t in the best shape but most of the vinyl looks amazing. Some sleeves have names written on them. For those, regardless of condition, I’ve rated them no higher than VG. All prices are negotiable and I’m willing to listen to whatever offers you might want to put out there. I honestly haven't researched value/worth so my prices could be off. Shipping is $4.50/each via media mail and won’t go up much from there if you buy multiple (again, negotiable). Payment accepted via Paypal only. This is my first time selling on here but feedback can be checked on Ebay (username fullsail21) and Discogs (iamthoreau13). With the holiday and my work schedule, I’ll probably get these shipped mid to late week (depending on how many orders I get... I’ve got quite a few mailers available but not a ton of boxes suitable for larger orders). In general these are all first presses, but I can give you detailed information if requested. Feel free to ask me any questions.
