5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS...PERIOD!!!, September 6, 2000
I've been listening to comedy albums since the early 70's from artists such as Carlin, Pryor, Cosby (to name a few) and as the 80's approached (and the birth of MTV), comedians really began to gain mass appeal as a broader audience tuned in. There've been an awful lot of comedians over the past 20 years or so who have released albums/cds and as funny as most of them are, This cd has got to be THE funniest piece of work I've ever heard. From the beginning (with the horse farts bit) to the ending (with the guy's son on the speaker phone), This cd doesn't have a weak moment on it and I'm here to tell you that you'll have tears spewing from your eyes listening to this one. What makes Schimmel so good and different from most comedians around is his ability to hit you with one-liners and little jokes and before you can compose yourself, tell a story which will have you falling off your seat. He doesn't stick to one format and it's that which makes him funny and at the same time, unpredictable. As a bonus, this is also an 'enhanced cd', meaning you can stick it in your computer hard drive and enjoy concert clips and extra funny tidbits. Get this cd and laugh your you-know-what off!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bone Crunching action, August 14, 2000
This review is from: Hard to Kill [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Being a huge fan of action films, it's hard to critique them because this genre of movie making has one purpose...to give viewers an escape from reality and a sense of enjoyment in seeing scumbags and criminals get what they don't get in the real world: The sh-- kicked out of them. For this reason, I rate films of this nature on production values and good action and effects, not necessarily the script or character definition. Most of Steven Seagal's films are better-than-average and this one rates near the top because the action is top-notch and the choreography of the hand-to-hand scenes is truly believable. His aikido skills are remarkable. There's even a little pathos and some humor thrown in to give viewers a little more than just bone-breaking fun. This is a good movie if you remember not to take it too seriously and just have fun and watch the bad guys get theirs in painful quantities.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE NUTTIEST PROFESSOR, July 31, 2000
Whether or not Jerry Lewis' "Buddy Love" is based on Dean Martin is so irrelevent...Simply speaking, this is probably one of the top 10 comedies of ALL TIME. From the opening credits backed by Les Brown's jazzy score to the very end when 'Kelp' trips and crashes into the camera and nearly falls right into our living rooms, this is one fantastic, funny (and sometimes poignant) film. Everyone, young or old, owes it to him/herself to watch this comedy masterpiece. And I defy ANYONE to not burst out in hysterics during the scene when Kelp is in the gym and this guy hands the barbells over to him...then watch the very next scene carefully while he's in bed sleeping. Other standout scenes include Buddy Lester as a bartender trying to make an Alaska Polar Bear Heater, The scene in Dr. Warfield's office just after the explosion during the opening credits, and his dance routine at the prom...Perfect timing, directing, and a stellar supporting cast featuring Stella Stevens, Del Moore and Kathleen Freeman make this a movie for all-time and I reccomend it to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, June 11, 2000
A wonderful collection from one of the '70s most gifted songwriters...I would've given this cd 5 stars, but for Heaven's sake, where is "99 miles from L.A."?

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect, February 29, 2000
This review is from: Original Gold (Audio CD)
Being a huge fan of Dr. Hook since the early days of the 'Medicine Show', and having their complete catalog of original LPs, I've long awaited a box-set of this talented group. This set contains nearly every one of their 'hits' as well as a number of other popular cuts, but what keeps it from earning a 5-star rating is the omission of probably their greatest song, "Cover of the Rolling Stone". How could this song be left out of this collection? It'd be like leaving "Joy to the World" out of 'Three Dog Night's' greatest hits. It's about time to start taking more care in assorting songs for a box set. And it's not as though Dr. Hook had a 20-year career or something. These guys' career was, for the most part, spent during the decade of the 70's. It's a shame, though, because it IS a wonderful collection of great songs from one of the great groups of the 70's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artistry at it's best, February 18, 2000
An avid Beach Boys fan of over 35 years now, I own ALL of the original vinyl LPs and many of the old 45rpm singles. Since the CD craze, many Beach Boys compilations have been issued and re-issued, sometimes difficult to be truly complete. This particular CD, however, brings the best of their 'Brother' years. This is music at it's best without one single weak cut. From Brian's beautiful 'Surf's Up' and 'Til I Die', Bruce Johnston's melancholy 'Disney Girls-1957', Al Jardine's rollicking 'Susie Cincinnati' and Carl's wistful 'Good Timin' to their later hits 'Getcha Back' and 'California Dreaming'...This is the reason why the Beach Boys are considered an American Institution. Although these songs didn't get the airplay or sell the way their early '60s surfin' and car songs did, what is truly realized here is that as we think of composers such as Chopin, Mozart, and Beethoven and what they meant to their time, The Beach Boys are on the same level for THEIR time and most importantly, stand the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growing up with Herb Alpert, January 11, 2000
This review is from: Going Places (Audio CD)
During the 60s, I grew up with all the various music of that decade, but Herb Alpert and the TJB were so different in that they were able to arrange and perform popular songs in a way which in effect made them their own. Going Places may well be their best work, containing one classic song after another. For years, I thought their version of "Walk, don't run" was the original. Listen to the musicianship on "Mae" and "Felicia". And with the classic "Tijuana Taxi", "Spanish Flea", and "Zorba the Greek", this could be a greatest hits album. This is a truly wonderful album and even though I own the entire catalog of TJB on vinyl, I had to get this cd in my collection. It still sounds as fresh today as it did 35 years ago.
