You know what, the song doesn't really work this way either. Because you have this bold intro, and that sound only half-returns at the end of the song. That electric guitar needs to return after the second chorus, or the bridge, and STAY as the song fades out, not sputters to a halt.

So yeah, screw it. It's unsalvageable without being able to mix those elements back in.

Bond-a-thon moving along nicely.

Had never seen Thunderball, and was watching it, and was thinking to myself "This is a bit like Never say Never Again", then I went and did some reading, and I thought that because Never Say Never Again was a fucking remake of Thunderball, released alongside Octopussy, I believe. How I did not know this escapes me, but, tack it on to the list of things I should know but do not know.

About one hour into You Only Live Twice.

Anyway, From Russia with Love is still my favorite of the group.

A ways to go before rewatching his 2 films, but, am I alone in liking Dalton? Not saying he was the best or whatnot, just did not think he was all that bad. I really liked The Living Daylights, at least I did when I first saw it.

From Russia With Love is my favorite Bond film as well.

I think Dalton was my favorite Bond. He brought a certain darkness to the role. I wish he did more than the two movies.

You're not the only one who can quote someone and then not say anything related!

I just watched a really cool movie last night called The Adventures of Mark Twain, from the mid-80's. It was all claymation, the best I've ever seen, and involved Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, & Becky hitching a ride with Mark Twain in this crazy airship. While on board, Twain tells them some of his short stories, which have their own segments.

What's neat about it is that it doesn't just have the whimsical Twain material, some of his very bitter and pessimistic stuff is featured, and it definitely doesn't seem like it's directed at younger viewers, despite the kid characters. There's also a pretty moving moment after the telling of Twain's little-read Diaries of Adam of Ever, where he mentions missing his own wife. Twain was unfortunate enough to have her and two of his daughters die before he did, and it shaped much of the anti-religious and mysanthopic themes found in some of his late writings.

Anyway, I think this just came out on DVD last year.

I don't know why I did that.

Still curious about your take on Timothy Dalton.

Meh. The movies sucked, that's all I remember. I liked the tougher, darker bond, but he had no sense of humor, which that character really needs. Even Craig has it.

But you're talking to someone who thinks everything from A View To A Kill through Die Another Day is absolute garbage.

Did you watch You Only Live Twice yet? I love that one.

A View to A Kill and beyond are mostly garbage to me as well. Except for Living Daylights and Goldeneye.

I agree that Dalton needed a little humor, but there was something about an edgier Bond after Moore had really started to ham it up that pleased me.

I was so fucking relieved when I saw Casino Royale.

Yeah, Moore was a ham. Approaching 60 probably didn't help him in those last few films either. But I think he had the best comedic timing of all of them, and the stories themselves are memorable.

It bothers me that so many question his Man Of Action credentials, when he was doing The Saint during Connery's run as Bond!

And I love that Persuaders show he did with Tony Curtis, even if he was more posh in that one.

Have you ever seen The Prisoner? I think this was discussed already. How about the Sandbaggers?

I like a bunch of the Moore films, and am looking forward to re-visiting to them as I progress. Most definitely agreed that his comic timing was the best, but perhaps that eventually worked against him.

I am 95% sure that one of the buildings used in You Only Live Twice in Tokyo is actually a Hotel that I stayed in in 2000.

I love The Prisoner. One of the 3-5 best shows ever. Not familiar with The Sandbaggers, but I've recently been watching The Champions, another late 60's British show.

Don't tell me you took you-know-who all the way to a Tokyo hotel. You gotta go Red Roof Inn or Super 8 style with that kind of woman.

You should check the Sandbaggers out.

The Prisoner is insanely great. I have it on DVD and need to revisit it, maybe when Bond-a-thon ends. Keep hearing rumors that there's going to be a film version. Be seeing you.

I certainly did not take she who must not be named to Tokyo with me. She has Motel 6 written all over her. And, her phone # written all over Motel 6, as it turns out.

You all need to see Bar-B-Q. I cannot stress this enough.
