I noted this in the "Watchya Watchin'" thread as well, but for the Jazz geeks: we lost Killer Joe yesterday.

The hell you don't. It's a treat to watch jazz cats swing and groove.

Why wouldn't you watch Basie Basie do his thing?

Or Monk?

Or Miles and Trane?

Or Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers?

I read the WSJ article, Robert. I think Mr. Maltin owes you lunch.

As someone who spent countless childhood hours reading the World Book Encyclopedia, I dug your appreciation of solid reference. Thank you.

Nason, would you keep your politics out of your reviews? Especially if the film has a lefty tint, like Killing The Messenger. News media is ignoring it, obviously.

When a critic or a reviewer strives to be apolitical, she loses a colour from her palette.

Coming from someone who injects politics into EVERYTHING, this is pretty funny.

I'm noticing your biting comments lately, Franklin. It's not fair, in fact it looks mean-spirited, especially in light of your own frequently misinformed comments. I'm , of course, speaking for myself.

I'm confused about why, in a place where you could have any number of friends, you choose instead to marginalize yourself.

I am very friendly with you all. If you cannot take my jeremiads you won't be able to handle real issues, like the coming Republican takeover. I'm ready for the firey streets.

We handle your jeremiads quite well...and then go on to discuss real issues.

MAJOR THREAD DRIFT.

SERIOUSLY.
Some people are wedded to their ideology the way nuns are wed to God.
