Why did you walk out on Noah? I haven't seen it, but it does seem to be quite controversial. Also, Patti Smith rules!
Ahh, Sugarmercy, it’s a very personal thing with me and I won’t spoil it for you — I just was rather annoyed with Russell Crowe’s antics and his accent. I know that’s a trivial matter! But go see it, if you like him and or the subject matter, It’s not poorly made film or anything. Cheers now, P
Another great song from an OST and sadly I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to make it through the whole movie….yeah I walked out on this one but not before I heard this grand little tune from the former L’enfant terrible of poetry/rock! So it’s the Sunday Gotta Have Good Song from the Flick selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner.
. Thou Shalt Not Utter Fatuous and annoying Remarks
"Has anyone explained the concept to you?" "These dishes are basically small plates for sharing…" "You could order four starters as the basis of a tasting menu…" and especially, "I’ll be back in a few minutes for your comments…"
Today two very nice, seemingly charming, normal young women arrived at my breakfast and java fix spot. Seated next to me they both seemed to be suffering from a similar complaint --- excessively tight jeggings or leggings that look like slacks, jeans, trousers etc., twice one stood to do a wardrobe adjustment while her gal pal was socialmedia sharing the events. At the same time I averted my eyes and went on to full avert mode. It's that accursed rubber-necker, unable to look away gene that nails us old Geezer's....and the other gal began to intimate quite volubly that having just come from the gym she was worried her "pants" were rather whiffy ..........it's a very small joint and I caught the waitress mimicking a grimace for me.......where's the HP sauce I muttered into my java....
I like to post some of the lesser know but considerable greats here — Marva is truly one of them! Though fondly regarded in the Funk/Soul circles but little beyond those tables gets airplay for the general audience. I have really fond memories of seeing her perform many many times and she truly was possessed of a more rough’n’raw style of Soul than heard in the mainstream which suited the “Funkier” side of things to a tee! She started her career as young as 3 in Gospel group and spent a long time under…er..yes the tutelage the man himself, Mr. James Brown. But with fondess for the Brassy Diva of Funk Soul this is the Saturday Got Soul selection from the Flimewll Papers’ Music Corner. Peace, love and grits y’all!
RIP Jesse Winchester: the sad news of the passing of Jesse Winchester. “A gentle man, a gentleman, an incomparable artist.” damn…very sad news about the passing of Jesse Winchester! I saw him a long time ago in little club in Montreal with a friend Steve Wilson and he was just so achingly good! Bless him and the music he left us!
Touch the Leather just itches like it should be an Iggy Pop tune…or something a lot older than it is….weird, ayup, almost creepy, ayup….but it came on all earworm like today and as the sun shone so brightly o’er old London town I was humming about touchin’ leather! So it’s the Friday Fresh Outta The Bag selection from The Flimwell Papers Music Corner. Peace, love and suede y’all!
A song from earlier on in the career of Canada’s doyen of the Indie World, Ms. Feist doth capture a fine mood here! It’s a song that reminds of home to me too! It’s the Thursday Got A Canuck Tune For You selection from The Flimwelll Papers Music Corner. Peace, love and flashing toads, y’all!
It just felt like the kind of song that ended today’s off center, out in leftfield and walking in the daisies feel! Enjoy the Tuesday Got To Be Different selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner. Peace, love and daffodils y’all!
Stepped deep in the very beginnings of Blues and for hat matter music as we know it comes a handful of elemental yet ever lasting tunes. This is one of them and when I first heard it played like this the hairs all up my arms and across the back of my neck were static….The Monday Got the Blues selection from The Flimwell Papers Music Corner. Peace, Love and Goober pie, y’all!
This song was the one and only reason I went to see the movie….though I must say I am glad I did…Springsteen crafts the perfect backdrop for his long time off and on friend, Mickey Rourke here. The battered, broken and still taking things standing up soul. It’s a song that hits some of the best lyric runs Springsteen turns his pen to! It’s also a great mood setting piece for the film. It’s song that stands very well on it’s own but is a key drive in the flick too. So it’s the Sunday Got A Great Song from a Soundtrack selection from The Flimwell Paper’s Music Corner. Peace, love and egg’s on toast, y’all! It did go on to win a Golden Globe for Best Song too!
we are friends with some wonderful people and one of them has the ability to purchase such a barrel and then have it contents bottled and numbered as well as labeled with the the year of distilling, cask number and exact bottle number from the barrel. I have two of the bottles from his barrel… okay I have one and a half bottles said bourbon.
Not only one of Soul’s great voices but one it’s fiercest survivors! A fine one from her too limited back catalogue! She should have had bigger hits, more promo, more exposure…she could have been as big as Ms Ross but things weren’t to be. But she strove on, struggled ever onward never giving up on her dream. And then a few years back it was like she was everywhere…another overnight stellar success that 30 years to land! Bless you Miss LaVette and she’s a pal of ours too through her dear hubby! So it’s the Saturday Got Soul selection fuh suh!
