Really sucks about Jonathan Demme. I need to watch Something Wild at least once a year.

It's quite amazing how much Christopher Guest in Spinal Tap looks like Yardbirds era Jeff Beck!

Dear Damien Chazelle: "Jazz." You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Dear father of the eight year old boy who wouldn't stop riding his scooter in the Whole Foods on East 57th Street: were you hoping for better behavior when you named your boy "Jagger?"

(Twin brother Richards was nowhere to be seen.)

It's an Errol Morris double feature tonight at Cinema cyberkrunk: A Brief History of Time, followed by The Thin Blue Line.

@munin I was going to sign up for FilmStruck, but their registration process won't allow a pasted password confirmation. They have a support email, so I wrote them about password managers, complex passwords, etc. They wrote back saying "We don't understand any of that. Would you mind emailing our tech people?"

@Nezchan It was a classic. I remember learning stuff like:
10 input C$
20 for i = 1 to len(C$)
30 print left$(C$, i)
40 next i
50 end

Fun!

@Nezchan This is what I first learned to code on, from "The BASIC Cookbook" c. 1976.

@inkdroid @Nezchan To this day, my wife and I have a running joke whenever a device starts beeping, one of us will ask, "where's Merlin?"

The Longest Day cast includes:
Eddie Albert, Paul Anka, Richard Burton, Red Buttons, Sean Connery, Fabian, Henry Fonda, Peter Lawford, Sal Mineo, Robert Mitchum, Robert Ryan, George Segal, Rod Steiger, Robert Wagner, and John Wayne!

Basically, if you were a male actor in 1962, you were in this movie.

@mykola It's on Netlifx in case you're in the US.

@mykola I can believe it! It gets a 92% on RT, but there's lots of cornball.

Now watching The Longest Day which is basically The Longest Yard with war instead of football.

Directed by Marshall Brickman, and there are some subtle Woody Allenish flourishes.
