| Movie/TV Board|| "The Sixties" on CNN - IonaTiger on 6/28/14 at 8:36 pm|
I've been watching this show tonight. The episode on now is "History of the Civil Rights Movement". It brings back some bad/sad memories of when I became a teenager in 1964.
This is a pretty good series with a lot of archived film. The episode on TV shows during the time was very good. For t...

| Music Board|| Can anyone identify this song? - IonaTiger on 3/11/14 at 12:27 pm|
I was watching Fox news last night and in the clip below there is a snippet of an instrumental part of a song (a guitar and a saxophone) that I know I have heard many times, but cannot place the name of the song or the movie that I associate the song with. It starts at about the 2:23 mark and ends ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Judgment at Nuremberg is on TCM @ 9:45 pm (Eastern) - IonaTiger on 11/20/13 at 5:59 pm|
For those of you who haven't seen it, it's a pretty powerful film.
Spencer Tracy plays a great role as an American judge as does Maximillian Schell, as the defense attorney. Judy Garland and Montgomery Clift's characters are pretty depressing....

Time does fly. 5 years ago I posted the message below on the 5th anniversary of my Dad’s death. I posted it on a few occasions thereafter. Since today is the 10th anniversary of his death I trust that you will indulge my posting it again. I know that I am not special in having lost a loved one. ...

In his return he led off in the top of the second and hit a home run on the way to a 7 run inning. The Dodgers batted around and Kemp hit an RBI single in his second at bat in the 2nd. Dodgers lead the Nats 7-0.
I am a Nats fan, but I have been a Dodger fan since I was a kid and a Dodger fan fi...

I posted about this movie a few years ago when it first aired. I am watching it again and it is just as powerful as the first time I watched it.
It is a movie everyone should watch.
I needed a good cry anyway. :usa:...

@ 8:00 eastern time on HBO Signature.
I have been re-watching at 8:00 each night as "The Sopranos" was one of my favorite HBO series and "Pine Barrens" is one of my favorite episodes. For those who do not want to tune in, here is the scene that always made me laugh:

There are so many great female singers but these are a few that I have been enjoying. Women hate me, but I still love them!
Always had a thing for Dolores O'Riordan:

I love the guitar in this one:

I saw this performace at Arena Stage in D.C. on Saturday and it was great. The woman who played Janis did a remarkable job. The woman who played "The Blues Singer" was amazing.
Hard to believe that Janis has been dead for over 40 years and died so young as a result of an overdose. She had a he...

I see it's coming on at noon (eastern time) on HBO. I saw it when it first came out and was very moved by the movie.
I remember Kevin Bacon's first screen appearance in "Animal House" and his performance as the despicable Nokes in "Sleepers". But this is far and away his best acting performance...
