TRUE STORY:

I saw this thread just now and thought, TALKING HEADS!

Then I was disappointed. Then I was happy with myself.

BUT it's like I had never heard before this "True Stories." I'm making a mental note to not forget it, again.

So, no, not yet. Fuckin' potheads, I swear.

Check it out if you have a chance! You can get the DVD for like five bucks on Amazon. Honestly I can barely listen to the Heads' album version of True Stories after hearing the movie versions (Byrne is great but he doesn't have Goodman's country chops, and "Papa Legba" works much better with an actual black person singing it).

John Goodman is so good at everything

It's the second-most beautiful Talking Heads song to be sure, but I think I prefer the movie's version even of that! True story: that scene is the silliest movie scene to ever make me tear up a bit.
PS: Matthew watch this movie

Quoted for truth. Try working for NBC and writing a less than glowing story about General Electric.

Is there a True Stories soundtrack that has the movie versions of the songs? If there is I need it.

I AM FINALLY OBTAINING THIS. I will try to watch it this weekend or, barring that, on my day off Monday or Tuesday.

And in the process of looking, I discovered my Pass the Popcorn account is no longer valid, guess I didn't use it enough. Oh well!

And it only took about three years to get here. Is there anything you want me to check out in 2015?

Hmm, I'll have to get back to you on that. Though I'm reading a book of short stories by Roald Dahl and they're pretty good.

Dunno, it's all like 60 Minutes on Acid.

Oh JESUS. You know most days I'm out walking to/from work and I think to this thread, and go, "Ah. John Goodman. Talking Heads? Johnny. That thread. I have that movie on my computer, I just need to watch it."

I'm glad you bumped this thread! It reminds me that we're about three weeks, maybe less, from the point where you can go honorably hop around that land of that ol' rising sun saying, "Ayuh, I knew this dumb motherfucker, once..."
