5.0 out of 5 stars The Only TP That Will Grace My Backside, August 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Some toilet paper is too fluffy, and you feel like you're just smearing things around. Some toilet paper is so rough, you need to keep a bottle of aloe on top of your commode. Some toilet paper is so weak, your fingers bust right through it. SCOTT BATH TISSUE is the perfect trifecta of mass, texture, and strength - leaving me feeling like I can take on the world every time nature calls.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Movie, March 6, 2002
This review is from: Say Anything (DVD)
Say Anything is, in my opinion, the shining film in Cusack's incredible career. Funny, charming, and original, Cameron Crowe wrote and directed a "teen" movie that appeals to any generation without using any of the typical "adolescent" flair. No cheesy humor, no stereotypical characters, and certainly no cookie-cutter plot. What we see is an emotional masterpiece: Lloyd Dobler, a nervous but charming 18-year-old, and Diane Court, the beautiful valedictorian. Portrayed by Cusack and Skye, their on-screen chemistry convinces you of their true desire and love for one another.
The DVD is PACKED with extra goods: ten deleted scenes, thirteen extended scenes, and five alternate scenes. The extended scenes even change between color and black & white so you can tell what's new, and what's in the movie. Not to mention two full length trailers, eight TV spots, and of course the best of all, the commentary! John Cusack, Ione Skye, and Cameron Crowe all reunite to pay tribute to and reminisce the wonderful film from 1989. The picture and sound quality are perfect; this is well worth your hard earned money.

2.0 out of 5 stars River City High Matures...?, November 1, 2001
This review is from: Won't Turn Down (Audio CD)
I remember seeing these guys when they first got things going, and their sound completely blew me away. Unfortunately, my then 16-year-old ears had yet to hear TRULY amazing music; but that aside, they were a fun listen and James has an interesting voice in punk music. The four-song demo I paid five dollars for really showed some promise, and so a few years later, I picked up their major label debut. The songwriting talent I heard in "Starcrossed" and "I Wish On Every Nickel" was replaced with radio-friendly, pop-punky, harmonized, three-minute "I've heard this one a million times" songs. In all fairness, this is a hard-working band, and RCH puts on a fun live show. But with the exception of a few songs ("Left Behind", "Runaround"), this effort is disappointing and far short of its capability. Pass on this one and keep an ear out for a new RCH sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Cusack-Driven Comedy, October 28, 2001
This review is from: The Sure Thing [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Rob Reiner ("This Is Spinal Tap," "The Princess Bride," "Stand By Me") directs another fun, spontaneous movie that is as entertaining as it is unique. Maybe it is another teenage romantic comedy that came out in the mid-eighties, but why does that mean it's predictable or cliche? It's another fun film that John Cusack can add to his list of classics. He delivers another stellar performance with every bit of his distinct flavor -- his off-beat humor, his sincere acting, and of course more female rejection. I recommend this movie to all Cusack fans, 80s teen film buffs, or just for anyone who wants to escape reality for 90 brief minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Match between Music and Film, October 28, 2001
Is it okay that my favorite movie of the year was a romantic comedy? John Cusack delivers another perfect performance a la "Say Anything"...and the music chosen for this film is every bit as good and genuine as Mr. Cusack himself. Songs like "Waiting in Vain" by Annie Lennox perfectly complement the fun but magical tone in the film. Louis Armstrong's "Cool Yule," which opens the movie, is a fun and of course, jazzy, song about the most wonderful time of the year. David Gray's "January Rain" may be my favorite, an acoustic instrumental song that is molded flawlessly into several scenes in "Serendipity." When you listen to the soundtrack, you will immediately remember the film and some of its most touching scenes -- especially the skating rink. Cusack's movies almost always have incredible soundtracks, and this is certainly no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long-Awaited, But Well Worth The Wait, April 1, 2001
This review is from: Moon Is Down (Audio CD)
I have anticipated the release of "The Moon Is Down" for a long while now, as Tooth & Nail kept promising that it was "coming soon!" But now it is finally here, and I am not disappointed in the least. Driving guitars fuel this album from start to finish, as Chris Carrabba's unmistakeable voice rages above the music. It usually takes me about 5 listens before I can claim favorite tracks, but I'll be daring and let you know which ones stood out after the first two or three spins: "The Moon Is Down" (which begins with a sweet stereophonic effect of a plane taking off above your head), "The Bradley", "Monachetti", "New Year's Project", and "Pictures of Shorelines".
Unfortunately Chris Carrabba is no longer a part of FSF, but the band will continue to rock in his absence. Be sure to catch his new project, Dashboard Confessional; they have released two LPs and one EP, and their acoustic emo rock is beautiful.
I recommend this album to fans of the Juliana Theory, Dear Ephesus (geez I miss those boys), A New Found Glory, and the Get Up Kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celtic Jam Rock, April 1, 2001
This review is from: Echo Echo (Audio CD)
I did not hear of these guys until last night, when I went to see them play at Alley Katz in Richmond. I was utterly amazed, to say the least. Every musician in this band is beautifully talented, with instruments ranging from acoustic guitars to mandolins to penny whistles to upright basses to accordions to bagpipes. Yes, bagpipes. Barry Privett's rendition of "Amazing Grace" left the hair on the back of my neck standing on end. The album captures the onstage energy of the band in full, as it encompasses the band's variety of styles: rock, folk, and jazz, and ... well, traditional Irish drinking songs. I believe that the band's strongest point is their harmony -- an essential part of music which they use quite often. I highly recommend this album to anyone who enjoys the Agents of Good Roots or Dave Matthews-esque music. The CD is 71 minutes long and doesn't cost you an arm and a won't believe what you'll hear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Biting and Honest, February 13, 2001
This review is from: The Swiss Army Romance (Audio CD)
If you're between the ages of 14 and 18, you've probably heard (and memorized) each of these songs already. Chris Carrabba takes folk and pop and "emo", throws them in a blender, and creates a beautiful debut. If you are a.) searching for wistful music to listen to on a lonely car ride home, b.) pining for the girl you just lost, c.) a fan of Further Seems Forever (Chris' previous association, check out their debut 'The Moon Is Down'), or d.) just interested in hearing every teenager's favorite singer-songwriter, then pick this up. I recommend it above later releases, though "The Places..." is a fine album with high replayability. My favorite track is "A Plain Morning", for its sincerity and utter beauty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rock For The Masses, September 17, 2000
This review is from: Seven Day Jesus (Audio CD)
Most music is written to please a certain taste: punk music is perfect for teenage boys, boy bands make 12-year old girls swoon, and rap is great if you dig that scene--but Seven Day Jesus writes pop rock that most people can enjoy. Recommended, but don't make it the first album on your list.
