5.0 out of 5 stars A Hybrid Of Sorts, September 12, 2012
This review is from: Putrifiers II (Vinyl)
A great combination of the band's more lo-fi crunchy work with the melodic surf psychedelia. Is that enough stupid record reviewer adjectives for you?

This record rocks. They are a prolific band that you will need to wear your diversity hat for, so bring it. Oh, and the vinyl comes with a download card (thank you very much) that will not only allow you to acquire the whole album digitally, but will also offer a bonus track called Be Yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Actual Tracklisting for the Vinyl Edition, September 2, 2009
I'm not sure if anyone has posted this on the Amazon site, as yet, so I will just to inform fellow fans. The vinyl edition of this title contains both albums combined into a single double album. The tracklist in the above entry is just for the CD/download edition.

The vinyl breaks down like this:

Side 1
Aimless Peacock
Good Morning Captain
Been a Long Time (Waiting on Love)

Side 2
The Shady Grove
The Garden Gate
Shine Along
Roll Old Jeremiah
Houston Don't Dream About Me

Side 3
I Ain't Hiding
Kept My Soul
Lady of Avenue A
Make Glad
And the Band Played On

Side 4
What Is Home
So Many Times
A Train Still Makes a Lonely Sound
Fork in the River
Last Place That Love Lives

The mixture creates a different experience that can, of course, be recreated in other formats.

Great albums, in whatever format or rendering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passing Out Spoons, May 17, 2009
Maybe Amazon should have a spoon rating for the movies in its on-demand service. It seems as though most people who have reviewed this film wanted to be spoonfed a story of some type...or maybe the spicy material wasn't as Kleenex-box worthy as they had hoped.

Whatever the case, don't listen to them if you like movies that let you look into someone else's life. GFE is like a Cassavetes film, without all of the yelling. Oh, and it's brilliant.

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing a Track, April 13, 2009
This review is from: Joya (MP3 Music)
The MP3 version of this album is missing the last track Idea and Deed. The tracks are mislabeled, so the track title New Gypsy is left out, but the actual missing song is the last one (Idea and Deed). In all, there should be 12 tracks on this album. BEWARE!

The two stars is for the missing song. The album, itself, is fantastic. If Amazon fixes this problem, definitely pick it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book About Old-School Screenwriting, June 11, 2008
Norman's book is great for offering an historical account of the screenwriting trade, something that is usually overlooked in the Syd Field age. The only problem I had personally with the book is that the author seemed to become a little enamored with the auteurs of the 70s toward the end and didn't really talk about the dedicated screenwriters as much. While I think the stories about guys like Coppola and Lucas are interesting and eye-opening, it would have been nice to hear more about the trials and tribulations of the people whose names weren't above the title during those years.

Overall, a great book, though. It should definitely be on the core reading list of any screenwriting program--from the community group to the graduate level.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY!!!, July 7, 2005
This review is from: Point Blank (DVD)
This film is one of the all-time greats! And now, it is FINALLY on DVD! I grabbed it up the first day (two days ago now) and watch it for the first time with commentary from Boorman with Steven Soderbergh. WOW! Great insight into the mind of the director and into the backstage mechanics of getting such a challenging film made! They talk scripts, lenses, character and locations and so much more. One really funny story is about how Boorman believes that the script that Gibson made Payback with closely resembles the script that Lee Marvin originally read, then threw out a window. Nice.

It's troubling that this DVD has gone into Special Order mode here on Amazon, just two days after its release. I know that there's not a lot of demand for this film (as tragic as that is), but come on!

One last thing: Look, don't buy this movie if you want the story handed to you, okay? If you like linear, A to B, B to C storytelling, this movie is not for you. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with this kind of storytelling, it's just not what you'll find in Point Blank.

But if you want to stretch your ideas of what story can be, definitely take a look at this film! And if you do, just remember...this story may or may not really take may just be all in someone's mind.
