    Ok guys you got it going on here. Now how do you embed the videos?

    Not Friday anymore, (and others have put up plenty of Pulp Fiction music,) but I wanted to add this. It is the opening theme to the movie, performed by Dick Dale:

    I have always liked the exotic sound of this song, but did not know where it came from until recently. It turns out that the song “Misirlou” (which means “Egyptian Girl”) has been popular all over the Middle East, in Greece, in the Balkans, and in Jewish Klezmer music! Who knew? (I didn’t anyway.)

    To compare, listen to this more traditional treatment from Greek television, where it is being used as background music for a famous bellydancer. Listen to the melody… yep, it’s the same as the surf music melody:

    I love this song!

    I still want to see these movies.

    From the movie “No One Knows about Persian Cats”

    Blues from Mirza -- Emshab

    Metal from Nik Aeen -- Hesar Na

    From the movie “Glass House”

    That’s just raw. If rap had not existed, I’m convinced Iranians would have created it. It still has a sense of purpose there, too.

      Khirad. Metal from Nik Aeen — Hesar Na

      have know there is Metal over there. These guys remind me of

    What happens when you mix a little Phantom of the Opera and Hamlet à la the The Murder of Gonzago on a Bollywood screen?

    Cheesetastic fabulousness.

    Doesn’t hurt that Deepika Padukone is totally hawt, either.

    Here is a wonderful indy film you’ll never see at the Oscars: Ink. Movies can be art and entertainment at the same time. Watch it on Hulu and enjoy.


  6. The Dood says:

    Good night all…I’ll leave you with this!…

  7. chasethis says:

    Now that all the videos are missing, the thread moves much faster. :roll:

  8. chasethis says:

    All the videos are missing. WTF?

  9. The Dood says:

    Some Marx Bros….

  10. The Dood says:

    More “Pulp Fiction”…

  11. The Dood says:

    Quentin Tarantino films usually have good soundtracks….

  12. LFer says:

    All these award shows make me think of the song “Show Biz Kids” by Steely Dan.

    “Show biz kids making movies
    Of themselves you know they
    Don’t give a fuck about anybody else

    While the poor people sleepin’
    With the shade on the light
    While the poor people sleepin’
    All the stars come out at night”

    I apologize for being so cynical. I hope the folks who are into that stuff enjoy the show. It’s just not my cup of tea.

    • chasethis says:

      LFer. I love that people make movies. It’s one of the few industries we have left in this country. I doubt that they make them to win awards. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

      • LFer says:

        Chase, I enjoy movies too. It’s all those awards shows -- Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, Younameits -- that I can’t stand. They’re such self-congratulatory BS, an entire industry participating in a giant circle jerk. Gag.

        • chasethis says:

          LFer, I see your point, but those shows showcase new commercials, new creative, ad sales. That’s an industry all to itself and it employs people like me and thousands of others. So, I’m all good with it. I don’t watch it much, but I support it.

  13. The Dood says:

    Lemme see if I can get this to work….

  14. chasethis says:

    And, one more. Cat/Yusef Harold and Maude trailer.
