CINEMA                              


Friday night I got up to water the plants and had trouble getting back to sleep, so I rang up NetFlix on the iPad and stumbled over "History of the Eagles."  I was never really an Eagles fan; they came along after I was married and had a family, etc., and by then I listened to talk radio in the car.  Anyway, the next thing I know the sun was up!  The thing is 3 hours and 7 minutes.  Needless to say, I was fascinated; it's the best (after Spinal Tap - that was real, wasn't it?) band documentary I've seen.  Daily Motion breaks it into 4 parts and I've embedded part one as a sampler; but NetFlix is the way to go.

You're welcome.

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

If you like Spinal Tap youll LOVE A Mighty Wind. Same guys and same treatment of the Folk music era.

I was disappointed by Mighty Wind after Christopher Guest's nonpareil "Waiting for Guffman,and "Best in Show."

The Eagles movie was interesting. I had no idea that Glenn Frey was such an asshole.

I never listened to the band when they were a country rock outfit -- the sound was syrupy and boring. The band only took off when Joe Walsh joined them and made them sound like an actual rock band.

Also: Frey was yammering on about all their songwriting and hits, but I would take ANY Joe Walsh album (Barnstorm, So What? etc) over all the Eagles albums.

Frey and Henley write what I call "3rd-person" songs -- observational stuff like Paul McCartney does. Good songs, but basically soulless.

Joe Walsh writes songs about himself: personal notes on his life and feelings, with a wry, self-deprecating wit (e.g. Life's Been Good To Me, Vote For Me and Analog Man). When his songs aren't like that, they're unbelievably thoughtful (The Confessor) or poignant: I defy anyone to listen to the songs he wrote after the death of his baby daughter and not be moved to tears.

Frey/Henley's ditties pale by comparison. Yeah, they are The Eagles -- no doubt about that -- but Walsh is the soul of the band, and Frey never ONCE admitted that in the movie.

Plus, they're a bunch of Lefty assholes.

Ted Nugent knows where you live, Rodge... and so does Gene Simmons.

Kim nailed my opinion of Fry after watching this a while back, too. And I'm not so sure about Henley either, for that matter.

The article on Grantland was excellent and inspired me to watch it. You hit the nail on the head, it's Spinal Tap only it's all true.

Grantland used to be a great website until the SJWs ruined it.
