R.I.P. Keith Flint

Probably a bit of a reach for this board, but if you were a teen in the late 90's, you definitely remember this twister firestarter . With his cartoonish persona and inimitable style, he acted as a major gateway into the electronic music world for me - the first paragraph of the above article is alm...

R.I.P. Mark Hollis of Talk Talk

It does not appear to be confirmed as of yet, but the leader of Talk Talk is reportedly dead at 64. Whether you know him as the synth-pop hitmaker behind hits like "It's My Life" or the iron-willed post-rock genius of albums like Laughing Stock, this is a major loss.

Re: 91st Oscars: Picture

The women were also impressed by the $30 million Tiffany diamond necklace she wore, the Tiffany diamond having been last seen in a photo shoot Audrey Hepburn did for Breakfast at Tiffany's . I know this has been the main talking point today about for a lot of women I know. "Green Book, what's ...

Re: 91st Oscars: Ceremony

I didn't mind the host-less situation, it made the ceremony feel quite zippy. If "Rocketman" takes off, maybe they can just get Elton to open next year's show.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Original Screenplay

There is, however, something else to consider and that's that like Spike Lee, the likely adapted screenplay winner, long-time writer Paul Schrader has never won an Oscar. Oddly, he's never even been nominated. He could, like Lee and Glenn Close, be a recipient of one of those "it's about time&...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Director

So, why the .1% doubt? Simply put: the last time a foreign-language film was in this position to win an Oscar, the voters instead passed on a (nominated) DGA choice for the first time in 28 years. That scar still aches a bit. So, yes, of course I'm betting on Cuaron, and very much expecting him. Bu...

Re: The 2019 Grammys

Did anyone else watch the awards? I assume BAFTA's would have won out, as with Bradley Cooper, so on this board. MICHELLE OBAMA. Her single utterance of "Motown..." brought the house down. Just to be clear, the audience's rousing ovation had nothing to do with Motown. Rather it was Michel...

Did anyone else watch the awards? I assume BAFTA's would have won out, as with Bradley Cooper, so on this board. I caught the last half an hour or so and read up on the winners. - Glad to see Kacey Musgraves win Album, probably the best choice in that particular list. Alicia Keys' pregnant pause bef...
