    Livin' long enough to see Pontiac Silverdome 1977 released on DVD. 1970 Bath, 1971 Japan soundboards, 1968 Europe and UK tours are also ones I hope to live long enough to see.

    As us wiser, cooler heads knew all along. That is why you never judge a sport's ratings based on preseason games. https://deadline.com/2018/10/tom-brady-patriots-win-sunday-night-football-ratings-rise-astros-red-sox-walking-dead-nfl-nbc-1202482619/

    One of the great episodes. I play it for my nephew a lot. Animal is my second-favourite drummer.

    Jesus. I came out of the concert last night and the Dodger game was still going on. 😮 Extra innings...or as ebk likes to say, "Free baseball!" Manny Machado has definitely been a good pickup for the Dodgers. But man, I had no idea he was such a dirty player. He is pulling some A-Rod type shit in this series. Not cool.

    Better than the baseball game, that's for sure.

    The Retro Thread

    That was the whole idea of Googie architecture...to signify our entry into the Atomic Age or Space Age and optimism for the future. The swooping design lines and fonts used for lettering all were geared to get you thinking of rockets and space travel and fun. It's influence was felt in real life architecture and in film and television shows, too.

    I've Been Going to the...MOOOOvies

    I have heard some good word-of-mouth on the new "Halloween". I had a pass to see it at the premiere but it conflicted with another concert I had to attend, so I haven't seen it yet. This apparently is meant to be a straight sequel to the original "Halloween" from 1978...40 years later. I guess you are supposed to forget all the other Halloween movies made in between and pretend they never existed.

    The Retro Thread

    That's the famous Ship's coffee shop. There were several in LA...one on La Cienega and Olympic near the Beverly Hills Tennis Club; one near MGM Studios in Culver City; and the one in your photo above was the Westwood Village location. They were open 24 hours every day and every table had a toaster so you could toast your own bread/bagel. All featured the Googie architecture style and all have long since been demolished. If you watch the 1985 Jeff Goldblum-Michelle Pfeiffer movie "Into the Night", one of the scenes is filmed inside the Westwood Ship's.

    Agreed. Nic Cage has done a lot of straight to video crap over the years. I had pretty much given up on him. I guess some core of talent remained...it just required the right director and script to bring it out.
