Well this is my first discussion on Amazon, this thread is mostly for discussing classic movies, music, and pretty much anything.
My name is Jason P. Pumphrey, and am a lover of pretty mush anything classic, although I like some of the newer stuff, I still prefer the classic (especially when I comes to movies and music)
Everybody is welcome join in on the fun!

Hiya!

I bought the deluxe gold box of the Star Wars trlogy (VHS) right here for a penny! Ask Nancy. I'm sure she remembers the day I was crowing about it.

I love cheesburgers with the works but hate blood sludge, so I try to be good. Also don't care for Jimmy Buffet and his dominance over Key West, and that STUPID margaritaville song. feh! feh!

Dan Fogelberg. Wow, that was "open a vein" music and bleed along with Dan.

Speaking of Dan, here's a great album: COUNTDOWN TO ECSTASY, by Steely Dan.

(Will you still have a song to sing; When the razor boy comes and takes your fancy things away? Will you still be singing it on that cold and windy day?"

Countdown is one of the two best Steely LP's. the other being the debut.
Everybody always says how great Aja is and how it's the masterpiece, and its a good LP, just the first two albums were the best IMO, The Dan was an actual band for those 2 lps, fter than it was basically Becker and Fagen with session musicians.

my ranking of the 7 original MCA LP's

Cant Buy A Thrill
Countdown To Ecstasy
The Royal Scam
Pretzel Logic
Aja
Katy Lied
Graucho

I won free tickets to see em live back in 93 (back when radio staions had those cool contests), they were lawn seats, BUT FREE IS FREE.
twas a damn good concert!
damn, that was almost 20 years ago, and it seems just like yesterday, TIME FLIES!!!

Wow, my niece was watching The New Electric Company, WOW this show SUCKS.

Back when I was kid, THERE WAS THE GREAT "OLD SCHOOL" ELECTRIC COMPANY w/ Bill Cosby, Morgan Freeman, Rita Moreno, Skip Hinnant, Jim Boyd, etc.
plus Joan Rivers, Zero Mostel, and Gene Wilder in the "Letterman" cartoons on the show.

The new Sesame Street also bites, TOO MUCH ELMO, might as was well call it "THE ELMO SHOW"

Skip Hinnant played Snoopy in the original off-Broadway show of YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN (1968). A great MGM soundtrack of that, with Gary Burghoff as Charlie, Bob Balaban as Schroeder and Reva Pose as Lucy, is available on LP and reissued CD.

It's just about my favorite musical.

As for the creator of Peanuts, Charles Schultz, he was last year's third highest earning dead celebrity. The top two were Elvis and Michael Jackson at the top. Now that he's dead, Michael s finally solvent. Ironic, no?

always thought Gary Burghoff (both the MASH film and and TV show) kinda looked like the late Elisha Cook Jr. (House on Haunted Hill, The Killing) haha!

as for MASH, I watched Alan Alda's film, called Betsy's Wedding, darn good film, probably Alda's best directing effort, has a great cast too, Alda, the late Madeline Kahn, Molly Ringwald, Burt Young, Joe Pesci, ect.

Bob Balaban, now that's not a name I hear much, I remember him from a few films, Close Encounters..., Catch 22, Capote, Midnight Cowboy, there's probably more, but you know my old age of 38 is creeping up on me! I think he also wrote some paperback books as well.

Change that.
It was Skip Hinnant's younger brother, Bill who played Snoopy off-Broadway.

Molly Ringwald. Where is she now?

Old age! I've got 2 decades on you.

Yes, in CATCH-22 (1970) Bob Balaban plays Orr, the flaky pilot who keeps crash landing in the ocean and asking his bunkmate Yossarian to fly with him.

Balaban is also the villain in a great comedy called THE MEXICAN.
That stars Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and what's his face (Tony Soprano).

Molly Ringwald, I believe she wrote a book a year or so ago, I mostly remember her from those John Hughes films.

Skip Hinnant was also the voice of Fritz The Cat.

just picked up an incredible bargain, got Film Noir Classic Collection, Vol. 1 (The Asphalt Jungle / Gun Crazy / Murder My Sweet / Out of the Past / The Set-Up) for $5 at one of my trusty thrift shops, the box/case was a lttle roughed up, bu the DVD's themselves were prestine, no fingerprints/scratches, they actually look like they have never been played, don't own any of the 5 titles included, but I love good film noir, actaully the only title I have heard of was the first film in the collection: The Asphalt Jungle. But I look forward to seeing all 5 films! Rock on!

How about CHILDREN OF THE CORN?
No wait, that's a STALK film! :?D

Seriously, here's a good one: THE HITCHER with C. Thomas Howell and Rutger Hauer.

Yes.
Kurt Russell in BREAKDOWN.

Especially, an amazing TV movie that was Steven Spielberg's first major success:
DUEL (1971), with Dennis Weaver.

That one's a classic.

He's a little high-strung.
I'm partial to Alan Hale (the father), a big cuddly good-humored teddy bear.

The first snow is already falling here in Falls Church VA! Glad I'm inside for the rest of the day!

Did pick up one 2-DVD set today: "U2 Elevation Tour 2001" for $2 in A-1 mint shape at my trusty Goodwill
