Did You Enjoy “HIGH NOON”? Do You Enjoy SCI-FI? GREAT! Then You Will LOVE “OUTLAND”!!!

OUTLANDWas Released In 1981, And It Stars… … …SEAN CONNERY!!!
(TAGLINE: "ON JUPITER'S MOON HE'S THE ONLY LAW.")

HONESTLY, My Peeps…

…This Flick…

OUTLAND

…Is…

MY FAVE-FAVE SEAN CONNERY FLICK Of ALL-TIME!!!

.Period.

It Always Has Been.

And…

…It’s Very Likely To Always Be.

As My Headline States…

OUTLAND

…Really Is Like…

HIGH NOON

…Except It Takes Place…

…IN OUTER-SPACE!!!

O.M.G.

!!! !!! !!!

Exactly, My Peeps.

It’s WONDERFUL!

SEAN CONNERY

…Is…

MARSHAL O’NEIL

…The NEW Law In “Town”.

Only, The “Town” Is A CORPORATE-RUN-MINING-OPERATION On JUPITER’s MOON “IO”!!!

(I Can Tell You're Already Hooked Simply Based On The Possibilities!)

MARSHAL O’NEIL

…Takes Exception To Being Bossed-About By The Mining-Ops’ General Manager…

SHEPPARD

(Played Perfectly By PETER BOYLE)

…All The While He’s Trying To Figure-Out…

…WHY People Are Dying…

…And…

…WHY Are People Going Insane???

Soooo…

MARSHAL O’NEIL

…Enlists The Help Of…

DR. LAZARUS

(Played Equally Well By FRANCES STERNHAGEN)

…In His Investigations.

Come To Find-Out…

…Those Who Are Going Crazy And Offing Themselves AND Other Folks…

…Are ALL Taking A Powerful Drug That Does Make Them Work Harder And Faster…

…But It ALSO Eventually Causes Them To Go PSYCHO!

When…

MARSHAL O’NEIL

…Starts Puttin’ The Smack Down…

SHEPPARD

…Calls In The HIRED-GUNS To Stop The Marshal Before He Ruins Their Whole Operation!!!

And…

…Of Course…

…The People Of The “Town” Are All Too Cowardly To Step-In And Help The Marshal.

!!! !!!

It’s A HELLUVA FLICK, My Peeps!!!

And I DO Refer To It As A TOTALLY FORGOTTEN CLASSIC.

.Period.

Hell…

…Most Folks Don’t Even Know This One Exists.

BUT…

…That’s Why I’M Here!!!

Trust Me, Kiddies…

…If You Haven’t Seen…

OUTLAND

…And You’re Into The Plot-Line I’ve Just Lightly Laid Out…

…And You LOVE’YA Some…

SEAN CONNERY

(And Who Doesn't Love Themselves Some SEAN CONNERY!!!)

…Then It COULD BE The Proverbial Diamond-In-The-Rough For Ya.

Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps!!!

Do You Trust Me???

GREAT!!!

I Simply KNEW YOU DID!!!

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

(Totally NOT) Random Movie Mention (Special Edition): “THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD” (1958)

I’ve Been A Fan Of The Sinbad Films All Of My Life…

…But…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Has Been My Absolute FAVE-FAVE Of The Entire Sinbad Saga.

Released In 1958…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Also Stars My Favorite Actor To Portray The Character Of Sinbad…

KERWIN MATHEWS

KERWIN MATHEWS

…Though Mr. Mathews Is NOT The Major Selling Point For The Film.

No, That Honor Belongs To The Special-Visual-Effects WIZARDRY Of…

RAY HARRYHAUSEN

!!!

He’s The Man Responsible For The Visuals Of Other Such Classics As…

MIGHTY JOE YOUNG” (1949)

THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS” (1953)

JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS” (1963)

…And Of Course…

THE CLASH OF THE TITANS” (1981)

!!!

You Should Trust Me On This One, My Peeps, When I Say…

THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD

…Is So So SO MUCH FUN!

I Recommend It To ANYONE Who’s A Fan Of Classic Monster Movies…

…Or Is A Fan Of AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL Special-Effects.

It Was Re-Released On DVD A Couple Years Ago…

…And The Film Transfer Is Absolutely GORGEOUS!

And If You’re Still Unsure About It…

…Even TIME MAGAZINE Says…

“ONE OF THE BEST MONSTER PICTURES EVER MADE.”

That Ain’t No Jive, My Peeps.

It Really Is A Classic Of The Genera.

Like I Said…

…You Should Trust Me On This One.

I Just Finished Watching It Right This Minute.

I’m On Full-Time Uncle Duty, At Present.

So, I’m Constantly Having To Find Ways To TRY And Entertain My Nephew.

Sooo, I Showed Him This One.

I Think He Really Enjoyed It.

Score One For Uncle Brad!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head: “CRYING” by ROY ORBISON (with k.d. lang (1987))

orbison-lang (via www.streamingoldies.com)

“…I Thought That I

Was Over You

But, Its True

So True

I Love You Even More

Than I Did Before

But, Darlin‘, What Can I Do

For You Dont Love Me

And, Ill Always Be

CRYING

Over You

CRYING

Over You

Yes

Now Youre Gone

And From This Moment On

Ill Be CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

CRYING

Over You.”

I Know What You’re Wondering, My Peeps, I Really Do.

Is Young Bradley Sad This Morning?

Bradley Only Busts-Out The ROY ORBISON When He’s In A Downer Mood.

And, In Thinking That, You’d Be (almost) Very VERY Correct.

I Am Sad, This Morning.

It Happens.

To All Of Us, It Happens.

After Having A Conversation Last Night With Someone, My Mood Has Been Sinking Further And Further.

Again, It Happens.

Every Single Day Can’t Be Bubblegum And Candy, Ya Know?!

And, While I Do Tend To Listen To ROY ORBISON When I’m Down…

…I Also Listen To Him When I’m Supremely Happy.

There’s No Rhyme, Nor Reason.

It Just Happens.

But, Today, I’m So Very VERY Sad.

Being Taken To Task About One’s Life (or lack thereof) Is Never A Conversation One Enjoys.

In That, I’m Very Human.

I Didn’t Like It One Bit.

And, I’d Be Lying If I Said It Didn’t Effect Me On All Levels…

…Mental…

…Emotional…

…Physical…

…You Name It.

Did I Cry?

Even A Little?

You Betcha.

Did I Feel Better Afterward?

No.

Not In The Slightest.

In Fact, I Felt Weak.

I Felt Disgusted With Myself, Honestly.

Why I Let Anyone/Anything Effect Me Like That Is Beyond Me.

But, It Happens.

To The Very Best (and very worst) Of Us, It Happens.

So, This Morning, I Felt It Was Time To Work A Bit.

I Had To Get This Out Of My Head, Even In Some Small Way.

CRYING

byROY ORBISON

((with k. d. lang))

…Is My All-Time Favorite Duet In Music History.

Period.

In My Book, It Doesn’t Get Any Better.

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Enjoy It.

… … …

QUESTION:

When YOU Are Sad, What Songs Do YOU Listen To, My Peeps???

Anything Specific, Or Special???

Let Me Know.

I’d Love To Know.

May I Know?

… … …

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Long And Spindly

Death Becomes Me

Heaven Can You See What I See?…”

“…Hey, You Pale And Sickly Child

Youre Death And Living Reconciled

Been Walking Home A Crooked Mile…”

“…Paying Debt To Karma

What You Take Won’t Kill You

But, Careful What You’re Giving…”

This Is A Hard Jam To Beat, My Peeps.

DREAM ON

Is One Of The Best Songs, Period, From My UltraFavorite Band

DEPECHE MODE

😀       😀

The Lyrics?

BRILLIANT.

The Backing Music And Overall Sound?

QUIRKYAssBRILLIANT.

The Melody And Flow?

Did I Already Use QUIRKYAssBRILLIANT?!

MKay.

How About EVENMOREQUIRKYAssBRILLIANTerer?!

Awesome!!

Im Rollin With It, Then!!!

Can Anyone Really Ask For More From Their Tunage?

NOT. AT. ALL.

Give It A Go, Kiddies.

Tell Me What YOU Think.

Im Damned Curious, To Say The Least.

DEPECHE MODE Are Known For Telling YOU To ENJOY The SILENCE“…

But, In This Instance, Im Honestly Hoping For YOUR Words!!!

ENJOY YOUR DAY, Fo SHO!!!

Hey Vern, Lookin’ For An Alternative To Classics Like “It’s A Wonderful Life” And “A Christmas Story”?!?!?

That’s What I Thought.

In What Way Is “FRENCH CONNECTION II” (1975) Superior To “THE FRENCH CONNECTION” (1971)???

Two Words, My Peeps:

GENE HACKMAN

.Period.

(((Period Does NOT Count Here, Dammit.)))

😐

*** ***

*** ***

GENE HACKMAN

…Won The ACADEMY AWARD For BEST ACTOR Of 1971 For His Portrayal Of The Character Of “POPEYE” DOYLE In…

THE FRENCH CONNECTION

…And It Was Very VERY Much Deserved.

Based On This, If We Were Going By The Power And Drive Behind Said Portrayal…

…Yeah…

…The Math Says…

GENE HACKMAN

…Would/Should Have EASILY Walked Away With THREE (3) OSCARS In 1975, For…

FRENCH CONNECTION II

Maybe More.

😉

He’s THAT GOOD, My Peeps.

In Fact, He’s Absolutely Brilliant.

Yet He Didn’t Even Pull A Nomination For The Second Film.

😦

So Much For Math, Eh?!

New York City Police Detective “POPEYE” DOYLE Is A Classic Character Among Classic-Classic Characters…

…But He Wouldn’t Be, If Not For The Efforts Of…

GENE HACKMAN

.Period Period.

Two More Words For Y’all, My Peeps:

COLD TURKEY

.Period Period Perod.

To Find-Out The Significance Of Those Two Words, You’ll Have To See The Second Film.

BUT…

…I Always Tell People The Same Thing:

Watch BOTH Films, THEN Come Tell Me What YOU Think.

And I Stick By That.

Seeing…

THE FRENCH CONNECTION

…Is A Really Special Treat.

Seeing…

FRENCH CONNECTION II

…To Me…

…Is Even More So.

The Key To This Is…

…Oh Yeah…

GENE HACKMAN

😀     😀

I Love The First Film, Though Have Always Considered It To Be A TAD Overrated.

I Love LOVE The Second Film, And Consider It To Be One Of THE MOST Underrated Films Of ALL-TIME.

I Suggest You Give Them Both A Go, Kiddies.

I Doubt You’ll Be Disappointed.

I’m Already Curious As To What You’ll Say!

😀

Here’s Hoping Y’all Have A Damned Decent Day, My Peeps.

Do What You Can, At The Least.

Hang In There.

Take Care.

Be Good.

“…I Walked Around My Room… …Not Thinking… …Just Sinking In This Box…” –OUR LADY PEACE (“4AM” (1997))

I Blame Myself

For Being Too Much

Like Somebody Else

I Never Thought

I Would Just Bend This Way

Then A Phone Call Made Me Realize I’m Wrong

… …

4AMIs My Absolute Favorite Song By The Band OUR LADY PEACE, And It’s Off Of Their 1997 AlbumCLUMSY!!!

… …

And If I Don’t Make It Known

That…

I’ve Loved You All Along

Just Like Sunny Days

That

We Ignore

Because

We’re All Dumb And Jaded

And I Hope To God I Figure-Out What’s Wrong. …

… … … … … … …

… … … …

After A Reblogging Last Night For A Wonderful Friend…

…I Suppose You Could Say I Had The Band…

OUR LADY PEACE

…On The Brain.

Specifically…

…This Song…

4AM

…Which Is…

…To Me…

…Their Absolute Best.

Actually…

…I Only Have Three Of Their Songs On My MP3Player, Anymore.

They Got A Little Old To Me A While Back.

So I Did A Musical-Purge…

…Tossing-Out All But Three Songs.

INNOCENT

SOMEWHERE OUT THERE

…And…

…Of Course…

4AM

😉

4AM

…Was The Song That Got Me Listening To The Band In The First Place.

I Was A Senior In High School When It Came-Out.

A Very Impressionable 17-Year-Old, Ya Know?!

So The Song Kinda Stuck To Me…

…Stuck With Me.

Like Many Of My Favorite Songs…

4AM

…Has Been A Trusty Little Companion.

So Why Not Whip-It-Out Onto The Masses?!

Wait…

…That Sounds Kinda Dirty…

…I Shall Rephrase.

So Why Not Share It With The Masses?!

There.

Much Better.

😉

The Song ALSO Feels Very Relevant At The Moment.

Many Because I’m Working On This Piece…

…And We’re Inching Closer And Closer To The 4AM Hour.

😦

Sheesh.

One More Night With Nearly ZERO Sleep.

This Shit Is Killing Me, Fo F-in SHO, My Peeps.

I’m Touchy And Irritable.

My Thoughts Are Cloudy…

…And Not In A Fun, Bubbly Way.

More Like A Dense, Cut-It-With-A-Knife FOG.

Grrr.

I Know The Sleep Will Eventually Come, But When When WHEN?!?!?

I Sure As Shit Hope It Hurries The Hell Up.

Another Night Like This, And I’ll Just Drop Down Into A Crumpled-Pile Upon The Floor, Fo SHO Fo SHO.

😦

So…

…Yes…

…I Feel Pretty Contented With The Statement That…

4AM

by OUR LADY PEACE

…Is Very Relevant To The Current Moment.

Wouldn’t You Generally Agree?!

Good.

Glad You’re Coming With Me On That.

The Support Is Much Much Appreciated, My Peeps.

😉

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Have A Damned Decent Day.

I’m Gonna Do My Best To Deal With What I Can.

Can’t Ask Much More Of A Sleeeeeeepy Man, Right??!

RIGHT!!!

An Amazing Song That’s Eating Me Alive: “POLICY Of TRUTH” by DEPECHE MODE (1990)

“…Now You’re Standing There Tongue Tied

You’d Better Learn Your Lesson Well

Hide What You Have To Hide

And Tell What You have To Tell…”

POLICY Of TRUTHIs One Of The Most Classic Of All Classics From DEPECHE MODE‘s 1990 AlbumVIOLATOR!!!

“…You’ll See Your Problems Multiplied

If You Continually Decide

To Faithfully Pursue

The

POLICY Of TRUTH…”

***<{*}>***

<*>

So, What Is This?!

Is This How It’s Supposed To Be?!

Me…

…Here…

…Awake…

…As My World Sleeps…

…Constantly Reminding Me Of My Issues?!

I Sincerely Hope Not.

But That IS Sincerely How It FEELS.

I Hate Not Being Able To Sleep.

It’s Rather Maddening, Actually.

Lucky For Me, I Have My Music.

More Specifically…

…Lucky For Me, I Have My…

VIOLATOR

Period.

When You Can’t Sleep…

…The Pulsing Rhythms And Lyrical Brilliance Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…Can Honestly Easy The Pain And Suffering Of Yet Another Lost Night Of Quality Rest.

I Know I’ve Listened To This Album More Than Any Other.

More Than Any Other BY FAR.

And I Still Love It.

I Love Every Track.

All NINE (9) Of Them.

I Really Don’t Know What I’d Do Without It.

There Are Times When I Just Wanna Hear it.

And Then…

…There Are Times When I Simply MUST Hear It.

“Infectious” Is Such An Understated Term, Here.

This Morning…

…Or Tonight, Depending On Where You Are And Your Current State Of Consciousness…

…It Was One Of Those MUST Moments.

And Even More Specifically Than That…

…It Was A Morning/Night For…

POLICY Of TRUTH

😀

This Is Just A Wondrous-Crackerjack Of A Jam, My Peeps.

A Wondrous-Crackerjack, Indeed.

😀       😀

It’s Honestly Hard To Pinpoint And Peg-Down A Favorite Jam From This Album.

They’re ALL Favorites.

POLICY Of TRUTH

…Is No Different.

I Love It.

It’s A Favorite, Fo SHO, Kiddies.

When You Can’t Sleep…

…Reach For Those Amazing Jams.

And THEN…

…If You’re So Inclined…

…Write About Them.

It May Not Help You Sleep…

…But It May Help You In General.

It Works For Me.

It Makes Me Feel Better.

It Makes Me Smile.

It Distracts Me From My Sleepiness.

It Distracts Me From My Pain And Agony.

It Reminds Me That There Are Other Things Out There In The World Besides What’s Going On In My Head AND My Heart.

Wondrous-Crackerjack Jams Are Not Only To Be Loved…

…They’re Also To Be Respected.

And I Respect Mine.

DO YOU?!

😉
