It was ground breaking idea. Makes you wonder how many Puerto Ricans died in Auschwitz.You'll wanna play fast music when driving thru Oklahoma, it'll help you speed on out of there. Trust me I've been there.Count Macho is a street thug who think highly of himself, so it's no surprise that he'll emulate his betters.In 1976 callboxes were located about every 2-3 blocks and 911 service was in place, so there should have been plenty of help.They were still using the Miller-Meteor ambulances in the 70's. I remember still seeing them in use in the 80's because whenever I saw one of them go by I would think of this.
You'll wanna play fast music when driving thru Oklahoma, it'll help you speed on out of there. Trust me I've been there.I'd like to go to a rural place like OK, to escape the pollution traffic and general rat race of the city. See open land, and play the Eagles in the car.
Bring your own music then if you need to. Last time I was in Oklahoma, (wow, almost 20 years ago) the music was going Top 40 and christian stations. Tulsa is one of the marketing test cities in the U.S. They tend to get and try stuff before other parts of the nation. And it's a city with the "other side of the tracks" experience. You're driving along the nice family houses and clean streets of Tulsa, cross the tracks and it's apartment housing and littered streets of the black neighborhoods. Supposedly in place since the Tulsa race riots of the 20's where 300 died, 1000's of black homes and businesses destroyed.
There is something serene about driving through a place like Oklahoma with the right music blaring in the background. You're definately not alone in your thinking. That type of sensation is espicially romantacised in road movies. I picture TCM lookin like Richard Roeper. But that's my default image for most podcasters. I've started watching Who with the new series. So far so good. And that ginger is pretty fit. During the scenes where she's a little girl I was laughing thinking of what devious thoughts TCM must be having right now. That last line was corny as hell and doesn't make sense. The kid was a straight up asshole and far from a "butterfly". Heh, heh. More Trekkie bashing.I can see why Brunner stepped down from drawing the book. For a series about a talking duck, it get's a bit serious at times.How come at the bottom of some pages it say's "CONTINUED AFTER NEXT PAGE" like they didn't trust the readers to be smart enough to get through the book? Did the editors think the readers to be giant dumbasses? - WR
Nah, Richard Roeper has a weird 2-to-1 face-to-head ratio going on. I mean, I don't know how that's even possible, but look at him. And in my defense, that little girl seemed very, very interested in older men; notice how she wanted to go away with the Doctor even then - and for all she knows, the Doctor's only got one bed in that TARDIS...
I always thought Roeper was one of the better looking film critics. And my default podcaster image is Roeper with his glasses on. Don't know why he stopped wearing them. He looks way better with glasses.Phillips & Roeper > sisko & ebert any fucking day.- WR
At least Ebert got what was coming to him, considering all his crimes against cinema - whether it's being responsible for Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (which I liked, actually; but only in a so-bad-it's-good way) and the temper tantrum he threw over I Spit on Your Grave.
Phillips & Roeper > sisko & ebert any fucking day. Sacrilege. Heresy.
Saw the video but haven't changed my opinion. I guess I just don't get the appeal. To me, most of Siskel & Ebert's success stem from them being the first, which doesn't automacilly mean they're good. It does however, in their favor, give them a nice nostalgia sheen. Also, Ebert is just as guilty with using the catchy, quotable lines as much as Roeper is. I could easily edit together Ebert saying a bunch of them and anyways, there's nothing really wrong with them. For the record, I don't even like Phillips & Roeper that much but compared to S&E there's no question. Also, give me the Nolstagia Chick over this dude. His video felt so forced and you can easily tell it was rehearsed. Nolstagie Chick writes her material as well but with her, it's not as obvious.
