It’s easy. Just copy and paste the URL of a YouTube video, but put a “v” after the “http”

That’s all there is to it. Plus, since you can edit your comments here, it doesn’t hurt to try different things to see if they work.

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:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFrDSFzlKwE

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5q1Xt78wp4

Metal from Nik Aeen – Hesar Na

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHfaQW5ce5k

From the movie “Glass House”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGLenruJdmI

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.

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.

Phantom of the Opera? No, no, no. Try Phantom of the Paradise.

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.

They are back up as far as I can see chase, might have been due to a bit of tweaking behind the curtain. Flap off?

If you still can’t see them, empty your Cache and restart your computer.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I miss Ruth Gordon.

Actually a rare high brow Indian movie too, based on Othello. Who am I kidding though? I like this clip because of Bipasha.
