5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, April 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A must read. I read this one over and over to absorb it all. A brilliant and sobering head and heart trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barton At His Best, March 27, 2015
It was a great privilege to hear this latest project from Barton Carroll. His stories are soulful and populated with cinematic characters. I felt like I was watching a great film as each song washed over me. My favorite cut has to be, "It Had to Be a Train." My immediate thought after listening to it was, "Man, I wish I'd written that one!" Barton is obviously passionate about his work, and you can tell all of his blood, sweat, and tears went into this love letter to Avery County. If you've never been to Avery County, listen to this CD, and when you get the chance to visit, you'll feel as if you've already been there and lived it for a while.

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch "American Movie" instead, and see the genuine "Coven" (pronounced KO-vuhn), March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
. . .Sorry. . .just waking up from the snoozefest that is AHS Coven. By far, the most non-frightening thing I've ever seen.

SPOILER ALERT!

When the last episode started with a Stevie Nicks music video, it was simply the final nail in the coffin. Nothing against Stevie Nicks, mind you. I love her songs and her voice. But what were the writers thinking?

Aside from a few fun moments involving zombies on the lawn and the sheer joy that Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange bring to anything they touch, "Coven" is 13 hours I wish I had spent reading a good book instead.

This was a silly, slow, sloppy season.

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch "Hannibal" instead., March 2, 2015
This review is from: THE FALL, SERIES 1 (DVD)
Gillian Anderson is wonderful and easy to watch, but she is required to make chicken salad out of chicken. . .you know what. The plot is completely morose, disturbing for disturbing's sake, and uninteresting. Go watch "Hannibal" instead. It also has Gillian in it, and she is fantastic (along with the rest of the cast). Plus, you get a laugh every now and then to break up the horror. I promise you will not laugh once watching this show. Depressing, unfulfilling, and unsatisfying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fox Punishes the Deaf, August 19, 2014
The one star is for the Blu-Ray disc, not the movie. The movie and the musical are spectacular, without a doubt. However, I have a family member who is hard of hearing, and none of the song lyrics were captioned. Inexcusable. It figures that Fox Searchlight made the choice to delete the captions for song lyrics for a musical. The track record of the decision makers at Fox in general is dismal, but this takes the cake.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's like buttoning up a shirt wrong, August 11, 2014
This printer routinely picks up more than one sheet of paper, so forget doing any large volume 2-sided printing. It's like buttoning up a shirt wrong. Once you get, say, page 5 printed on the back of page 1 a couple of times, you'll want to cuss like a sailor. And here's a one-star for every single printer on the market today: they suck ink like a Hoover vacuum cleaner. The Artisan 730 is no exception.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skipped Donald Brown, July 29, 2014
Totally left out Donald Brown, one of the greatest jazz composers and pianists of all time. How could she miss Donald? What a bummer.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Subtitles, June 28, 2014
We loved the first two episodes we watched, but we had to stop because there are no subtitles or closed captioning options. If they ever release a box set of the entire series that has subtitles, I'll buy it straightaway!
