  1. Return Of The Film Corner Thread

    Put off by the above description? Shit, that sounds like a must see, and the framegrabs only serve to reinforce that feeling! Added to my Prime watchlist posthaste.
  2. A lament for Trout Mask Replica

    That does suck. I had intended to get a copy eventually, but it wasn't a high priority since I have the earlier Reprise CD and it was unclear to me if the ZFT version was a significant improvement. Guess I'll continue to wonder, as I can't see paying what will almost certainly be inflated prices now that it's no longer available.
  3. Play ball! 2019 MLB season thread

    Someone's just a tad peeved with the Mets' closer (NSFW)
  4. NBA playoffs thread

    The Rockets beat the Warriors in the regular-season series as well, for all the good it did them in the playoffs. Much as I'd like to see someone else win it all, it seems that the Warriors are this decade's version of Jordan's Bulls in the 1990s.
  5. Tell Me About the Cuban Laud

    Wow, I hadn't looked at his site in a long time. I have the original edition of the Grog Log, but will have to check out the newer stuff. I'm fortunate to live about five minutes away from a top-notch tiki bar, so they tend to get my business when I'm in the mood for a quality rum-based drink. If I'm making cocktails at home, usually gin or vodka is involved.
  6. Jimmy Giuffre 3-Live in Graz 1961

    Unfortunately, it does not include either of the two books that came with the CD box.
  7. Since it's hosted by Blogspot it's probably not in any danger of disappearing any time soon, but in the event that it does, the Internet Archive appears to have a reasonably complete backup. Spot-checking links to the earliest posts from the blog shows they are there, which is usually a pretty good indicator of completeness. http://web.archive.org/web/20190410133716/http://stomp-off.blogspot.com/
  8. WTB: Mosaic Earl Hines Sessions, discs 1 + 2

    I got it from Michael Cuscuna, who is eBay seller bluenotesound, so I'm assuming Mosaic doesn't have any or he wouldn't be selling the incomplete sets. He still has two copies available on eBay, and I noticed that the price had dropped from the $79.95 he was selling them for about a month ago to $49.95 now, which is what got me off the fence. The usual asking prices for this set weren't going to happen for me, so I figured I'd roll the dice on eventually being able to replace the missing discs and enjoy the rest of the set in the meantime.
  9. Just picked up a copy of the Mosaic Classic Earl Hines Sessions set that's missing discs 1 and 2. Anyone happen to have orphan copies of these two discs that you'd be interested in unloading?
  10. Return Of The Film Corner Thread

    I've seen IKWIG many times, but was still immediately transfixed when I happened to stumble upon it a week or two ago just when it was starting on TCM. Despite it being well past midnight, I wound up glued to my seat watching it until some time past the halfway point, when the need to get more than five hours of sleep before the workday came calling in the morning finally outweighed the need to see the film through to the end. I still remember the first time my wife saw it more then twenty years ago during a Powell & Pressburger retrospective - she was completely captivated by it, and maintained that it was the most romantic film she'd ever seen. I have a special fondness for The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, but given how many great films Powell & Pressburger made, it can be a difficult task to argue that one is more essential than another.

    Interesting analysis from @ptak on Twitter:
  13. I don't have a copy, but for pre-1950 Cole recordings like this, I'd check the Straighten Up and Fly Right discography. You might be able to borrow a copy via interlibrary loan.
