    You're laughing, and if you're with a rookie, they are so confused. "Do you speak (insert language)?" "Not a word."
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    "Rocketman" is such a blatant poorly-disguised backdoor attempt to lay the ground for an Elton John biography theatrical musical in a few years and I'm OK with that.

    Can you smash more cliches into a story? JFC, the first part was good, a nice character study, then it spiraled downward into every action movie ever. Meh.

    Blinded by the Light. This is a movie by the people who made Bend it Like Beckham.

    I liked the movie. Basically it's the story of a teenage Pakistani boy living in Thatcher-led Britain in the 1980's. He's subjected to racial abuse, an overbearing Pakistani father and household rules, on top of the normal misery that goes along with being a high school age kid. A friend lends him a couple of tapes of music by Bruce Springsteen and he finds a small amount of hope in the lyrics which seem to describe his life but also speak of breaking out of the rut and chasing whatever dreams he may have.

    To watch the movie you are going to have to be able to listen to a sizable Springsteen soundtrack. There are also some instances where the movie breaks into a kind of silly High School Musical or Glee performance of some of the songs.

    But, if you've ever had the experience of putting on the headphones, listening to a song for the first time, and have the lyrics speak to you in a way that no other song has, you'll probably enjoy the movie.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Is that a problem for anyone? Sounds like a high point to me!

    The Grass Is Greener:

    Part educational, part propaganda, but worth a watch. History of sticky-icky/ganja/weed/etc in America, the laws, the culture, etc. Accurately enough, but still funny as hell, is that Snoop Dogg made some of the most articulate points about the herb.

    I like it in general, but he always sounds like he's struggling to squeeze out a gigantic sh*.

    I will say this. I didnít understand Born in the USA until relatively recently. Before that I only played it on Fourth of July holiday.

    When I actually understood the entirety of the song rather than the chorus, I realized the irony of playing it as a Freedom Anthem while gaining a respect for it.

    That being said, I generally donít like his music, but that might change now that I know he doesnít have a raging murica boner.

    Oh man, he's exactly the opposite. His politics is not distinguishable from Michael Moore and his body of work is more jaded than Roger and Me.

    Bruce told Reagan to get bent when he tried co-opting his song. Hell Bruce caught a lot of flack (even around here) for his song "The Rising" after 9/11.
