(NOT SO) Random (JAMES BOND BLU-RAY) Movie Mention: “A VIEW TO A KILL” (1985)

A View To A Kill (1985)

Yeah, That’s What’s On.

I Just Happen To Have This Classic JAMES BOND Caper On Ye Ole BLU-RAY, Now!

Exciting, Eh?!

πŸ˜€

For The Longest Time, I Insisted To My Friends ((and anyone else whom might/might-not care)) That This BOND Adventure…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Was MY ULTIMATE-FAVORITE BOND Flick.

Period.

And, For The Bulk Of My Youth, It Honestly Was.

While It May Not Be MY FAVORITE Any Longer, It Remains A True Joy For Me To Kick-Back And Watch.

A VIEW TO A KILL” And “OCTOPUSSY” Actually Started My Personal Love Affair AND Adventure With Ole –007– And His Amazingly Wonderful World.

I Sincerely Haven’t Looked Back, Since.

I’ve Been Hooked From The Onset.

I Do So So SO Love This Movie, And Think It To Be Very Very VERY Underrated.

Yeah, I’ll Grant That ROGER MOORE Was A Little “Long-In-The-Tooth” At Times During This One.

It Can’t Be Denied, So I Won’t Even Try To Do So.

But, Did It Honestly Bother Me???

Nope.

NOT. AT. ALL.

I’m A Huge ROGER MOORE Fanboy.

He Shall Always AND Forever Be MY FAVORITE BOND, And It’s Pure Bliss For Me To Watch Him Go On A Mission As The World’s Most Famous Spy.

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

A VIEW TO A KILL” Co-Stars CHRISTOPHER WALKEN As Our Baddie, The F-in’ Brilliantly Insane “MAX ZORIN“, Whom Is Hell-Bent On Destroying Silicon Valley, California, With A Man-Made MEGA-DISASTER!

He Wants To Corner The World’s Microchip Market, You See.

Honestly, He’s The Icing On The Sweet Sweet Cake That Is A ROGER MOORE Bond-Fest.

And, If CHRISTOPHER WALKEN Is The Icing, Then GRACE JONES As The Evil Henchwoman “MAY-DAY” Is The Strawberry On-Top!

(((I hate raw cherries, so those don't come anywhere near my sweet sweet cakes with icing!)))

Just Sayin’.

πŸ˜‰

This Flick Is Truly PRICELESS.

It’s Over-The-Top At Times, But It’s Totally Worth It, My Peeps.

The Chase Scene Going From The Eiffel Tower, And Ending With A Crashed Wedding On A Barge, Is Simply Wonderful FUN.

And, That’s Exactly What The Whole Flick Is…

FUN!!!

Sometimes, That’s Really All I’m Lookin’ For.

I’m Very Happy To Have Now Added This BOND Caper To My Blu-ray Collection, And Now I’m Going To Get Back To Watching It.

I’ve Likely Seen It 412’ish Times…

…BUT It Has Yet To Get Old.

OH, And Don’t Forget About The Film’s Theme Song!

It’s Performed By Another Person Favorite…

DURAN DURAN

!!! !!! !!!

VTAK_-_UK_cinema_poster (via Wikipedia)

It’s STILL My Absolute Favorite BOND Theme Song.

Period Period Period.

Y’all Should Give This BOND Flick Another Chance, My Peeps.

It Is Deserving Of At Least That Much.

Who Knows, Maybe You’ll Encounter A New Found Appreciation For It.

I Know I Did, And I Already Really Enjoyed It.

You Just Can’t Beat JAMES BOND On The BLU-RAY!!!

πŸ˜€

Happy Movie Watching, Kiddies!!!

(regardless of the light-misty-rainy conditions)

…And I Have My Rockin’ Jams To Thank For It!

πŸ™‚

I Kicked-Off My Walk This Morning With The Song…

WELL, WELL

by BETH HART And JOE BONAMASSA

…As It’s A Truly Wonderful Jam…

…And It Really Gets Me Going.

It Really REALLY Was The Perfect Song To Get The Morning Rollin’!

Her Voice And His Guitar Are A Match Made In Music Heaven, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€ Β  πŸ˜€

Next Up Was The Classic Favorite…

CRADLE OF LOVE

by BILLY IDOL

Nothin’ But The Best Around Here, Eh?!

Eh, Indeed!!

(teehehe)

πŸ˜‰

So…

…What Do You Think Came-Up Next?!

Well…

…If You Said…

BLONDIE

…And Their Rockin’ Jam…

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

…You’d Be VERY Correct!!!

πŸ˜‰

Mr. MP3Player Was Really Cranking-Out Some Major Tunage This Morning, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

It’s Been A Long Time Since I’d Listened To A Few Of These Personal Faves.

I Do So LOVE The “Shuffle” Button On This Thing.

I Get A Motley Mix Of Music That’s Better Than Any Mixed Tape Or CD One Could Create.

Period.

Next…

…He Kicked It Down A Notch With…

ONLY THE LONELY

by ROY ORBISON

…Which Is One I’ve Already Blogged About, I Love It So Much.

ROY ORBISON

…Is Hard To Top, That’s Fo SHO.

He’s My Favorite Favorite Solo-Artist Of ALL TIME.

Period Period.

His Music Sincerely Speaks To Me.

I Love His Voice.

I Love His Lyrics.

I Love Everything About His Music.

So This One Was A Totally Great Choice By The Player!!!

πŸ˜€

For The Next Song, I Took Control.

I’d Really Been Wanting To Hear Some…

BILLY JOEL

…So I Thumbed Through My Tunes Until I Settled On…

KEEPING THE FAITH

…Which Just Felt Right.

It’s Very Middle-Of-The-Road In Regard To Its Pace And Rhythm.

Something I Could Just Cruise To For A Few Minutes.

It Really Was An Excellent Choice For What I Was Wanting To Do.

(pats self on the back)

GO ME!!!

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜‰

Following Mr. JOEL, I Popped The “Shuffle” Button Again, And Mr. MP3Player Tossed-Out…

MYSTIFY

by INXS

…At Me, And I Was Hoofin’ It Once Again!

MYSTIFY

…Is Arguably The Best Jam By…

INXS

…Or At Least, To Me It Is.

If It’s Not The Best…

…I’d Still Call It My Favorite.

Such A Classic Jam, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜€

I Decided To Cut My Wheels And Head On Home, At This Point.

I Knew I Had Time For At Least Two More Songs…

…And My Player Was Only Too Happy To Oblige.

He Went With…

THE OLD MAN DOWN THE ROAD

by JOHN FOGERTY

…Which Is An Excellent Choice For Walking Purposes.

It’s Got A Wonderful Beat That You Can Step To.

It’s One Of Those Songs That Make Walking A Pleasure.

πŸ™‚

For My Final Jam, I Selected It Myself.

I’d Been In The Mood To Hear It All Morning…

…And I KNEW It Was The Perfect Jam To Finish-Up With.

What Was It, You Ask?!

Well…

…It Was…

STANDING OUTSIDE A BROKEN PHONE-BOOTH WITH MONEY IN MY HAND

by PRIMITIVE RADIO GODS

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

Now Tell Me That One’s Not The PERFECT JAM To Finish-Up With!

Go On…

…Tell Me!

πŸ˜‰

A Totally Wonderful Song To Cool Down With, My Peeps, Fo Flippin’ SHO!!!

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€

And That’s It, My Peeps.

T’Was A Great Walk.

As I Said, It Felt Amazing.

I Needed It Bad.

Always Helps To Clear The Mind A Bit.

Sometimes, That’s All Anyone Really Needs.

A Good Walk…

…With Some Great Tunes.

Sounds Like The Perfect Way To Spend A Morning, Doesn’t It!?

DOESN’T IT!?!

SURE IT DOES!!!

πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: Friday, Sweet Friday!

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

Hope You’re All Swell.

Me?

Can’t Complain, I Suppose.

Still Got A Bad Headache.

That Part Ain’t So Good.

Nor Is The Muscle Strain On My Right Side.

Otherwise?

Well…

…Otherwise I’m Pretty Hunky-Groovy’ish.

I’m Sure The Headache Is Because Of The Freakin’ Weather.

T’Is Rainy And Humid.

The Air Feels Thick Enough To Cut With A Knife.

No Foolin’, Kiddies.

No Foolin’, Indeed.

HOWEVER…

…Regardless Of Said Headache…

…Or Of Said Muscle Strain…

…Or Of Said Weather…

…I Still Decided To Head-Out On A Walk-About.

I Hadn’t Gone Out-&-About For The Past Couple Days…

…So I Wanted To Make Damn Sure I Went Out-&-About Today.

For Today’s Walk…

…I Didn’t Do The Random Shuffling Of My Walkin’ Tunes.

Instead, I Made-Up A Little Playlist.

Listed Below Are The Songs I Ended-Up Jamming To This Morning.

… … …

I Began The Walk With…

SPECIAL K

by PLACEBO

…Since It’s A Pounding Jam Jam Jam-Type Jam.

πŸ˜€

And Then, Finally, I Went Into Cool-Down-Mode.

What Better Jam To Cool Down To Than…

BLUE DRESS

by DEPECHE MODE

…Which Is (likely) The Most Forgotten Tune On Their Biggest Album, VIOLATOR.

And That’s A Shame, My Peeps.

It’s A Very Cool Song, Fo FLIPPIN’ SHO!!!

πŸ™‚

… … …

ANWAY, Kiddies…

…I Think It’s About Time For Me To Jump Into The Shower.

So…

…Y’all Should Do Your Best To Take It Easy AND Take Care Of Yourselves.

It’s FRIDAY, Ya Know, So Taking It Easy AND Taking Care Of Yourself Is A Total MUST DO.

Think Y’all Can Handle That?!

SURE YOU CAN!!!
