Re: “Northern Soul

Great film about the working class movement in northern England in the 70s. The soul music, of course, is the treat here. Rare, non-charting Motown and other labels offering soul, were the tops and the dancing was purely exhilarating (you know how dance and music merge to make your heart burst with happiness). This little gem of a movie lit a damn firework under me. I'm obsessed now. Great directing (Elaine Constantine), great acting (Elliott Langridge, Josh Whitehouse, Antonia Thomas), with endearing bit parts played by Lisa Stansfield and Steve Coogan.

Re: “Farewell to the 'King of Country Music,' George Jones R.I.P.

He was born and raised a country bit of nothing in rural southeast Texas in the 1930s. It says so much for him that he became the King of Country Music - he had a song in him and he knew how to sing it. His performance on The Wilbur Brothers Show singing She Thinks I Still Care (on Youtube) from the mid 60s is electric with dark energy. Brilliant singer and a good guy.

Re: “Mad over Rachel Maddow

You lost me at using the term "pussies" as a derogatory term. Dude, she IS a pussy...and that's a good thing. CL, please don't let boys write about strong, smart women. They can't seem to get past sexualizing women, while dissing them in some way out of the other side of their mouth.
