[Special Music |Royksopp - Remind Me]



People have probably watched this advertisement from Geico . . . it is one of the many featuring cavemen. The cavemen rival the gecko, which seems to be losing steam to the cavemen.

Check out their crib, tip courtesy of thedeadfisharmy.

This video, I reference, in particular.





Every time I watched this ad, I thought . . . Hey, that's a catchy tune, and what is that tune, anyway? Haha, caveman.

Royksopp is the group, and the song is "Remind Me."

The Geico ad apparently uses an alternate mix. This is the video for a different version.





Nice video. I liked. Their other videos are neat, too. Search "Royksopp" on YouTube.

I've actually got that Royskopp album--it's a double CD. I got it when I lived in Ireland. They were huge for a while there.

Yeah, they whole album is great. I'll have to send you some songs when the hectic schedule calms down. Or if you want to e-mail me your address, I can burn the whole thing & send it to you. I believe in spreading the love.

I would enjoy some songs when your hectic schedule calms down!

Visual style in the videos is a nice plus to this group.

Give up on local radio. Turn your home computer into a global music serch engine and enjoy the variety!

I think it's not that I've actually tried or maintained hope for local radio.

Around the world, people know the name Derrick May.

On these streets, I could ask ten random people, of maybe a max age of 45, who Derrick May is, in the local area of Detroit. I don't think I'd get a very fantastic recognition rate returned from them.

There's a rock station, urban, country, variety, sports, AM/FM . . . no electronic. If this group became America-popular, maybe they'd put it into the pop music category.

Maybe I'm rambling, but there isn't even a station in most American cities that puts out the same Top 5 superpopularamadong hits for electronic music every hour, amid countless minutes of the exact same commercials between each song. Not even that kind of station exists here.

We have one local college station that has electronic shows, but it's a variety format overall. I use the internet to discover new artists, esp. electronic artists.

yea, i'm watching this one:

http://murunsite.ifastnet.com/fusion/viewpage.php?page_id=88

i almost pissed my pants when the actual movie started. i don't know how they do it. i have an 8 month old, so getting out for a film is almost impossible. i was (am still) going to rent the DVD when it comes out, probably in 6 weeks. still, getting to watch it tonight w/o paying ten bucks or standing in line is pretty pimped out. i'll have to look and see what else tehy have movie wise.

i sent it to you because i figured you'd appreciate it. i have a few friends on here whom i like, but they get pissy when i post music downloads. a whole fucking movie for free would make their heads explode. wait until they have kids.

Your story's very much like many parents of young ones. To go to do anything one once did without a young one, it's pretty difficult in the first years. Work, home, kid. Makes total sense.

I try to watch as many as I can . . . how anyone usually does it, they're working at a theater and they got a tripod and a vid-cam, and late night when they get the reel or disc they pop it in and hit record on their device. Then it gets uploaded like YouTube.

Speaking of which . ..

They should all still be there. Dunno the last time you saw the Twilight Zone movie, if ever . . . worth a look-see.

Same here . . . their treatment of MJ and Peter was a bit awkward at times, but the rest of the stuff and the shock at the end was great. My buddy and I were talkin' about this earlier . . . I see the whole redemption thing, plus the forgiveness motif. Plus, the stuff with Peter acting like Travolta during the black suit days was hilarious.

Nice cameos by Stan and Bruce Campbell, too.

that dance scene he did was really peculiar, but the strut through the street was priceless. it was interesting that they set up future films by introducing Gwen Stacy and Dr. Conners (i'm assuming that he's that Dr. Conners.)

i caught Stan Lee and Bruce also. the end was a surprise. they don't screw around in Spiderman movies, people died in all of them.

Dance scene . . . we came up with the idea that it sets up a progression of his evil suit taking too much control over him. He accidentally shoves MJ down, but he realizes at that point . . . whoah, I'm flying out of control.

Buddy filled me in on Gwen and the doctor (I'm not too familiar with the comic storylines) . . . Gwen eventually dies . . . that doc becomes a lizard dude.

With the stuff I thought of MJ and Peter that was awkward . . . their dialog was kinda bleh. In particular, scene right after Bruce cameo . . . "that was our kiss!" Rubbed me wrong. That was also way too abrupt for me, but hey, I can deal with having to be quick (they packed a lot in) . . . maybe better dialog selection.

Also, this came up . . . it didn't hit me because the film was enjoyable (still is, despite this) . . . if that butler says to Parker's buddy what he said (assures him it was not Pete's fault), that for-sure revelation from butler to Parker's boy literally negates all of S-2 and most of the hubub with S-3 between Pete and his bud.

Only other thing that made me real "ruh?" . . . when Venom and Sandman steal MJ and set up the whole bait Spidey deal, there's a huge crowd, TV cameras, breaking news. It's all focused on just MJ . . . including the news broadcast . . . then Spidey shows, all fucking hell breaks loose, and suddenly buildings are being torn apart . . . these people don't flee in terror. Everyone seems to kind of stick around, and the broadcast doesn't shift from being one about kidnapped MJ . . . they keep reporting, and they even had that one news-break-in with them being sorta concerned for Spidey, for MJ. . . . this was a King-Kong-style scene. This is World Trade Center's falling kind of stuff. Mass chaos. Cameramen should be backpedalling while they're filming, and everyone should have run in terror.

in the end it was a 'comic book' plot to a great degree, but i figure that if i can suspend my disbelief for some things, then why not others? i see your point though, in that we still expect people to act logically in certain situations, like when a building is falling on them.

the kiss comment didn't faze me much. only because in the first movie that upside down kiss got so famous, that it kind of was 'their' kiss, and i can see a girl being pissed about he man pulling something like that (with a hottie like Gwen in particular.)

Peter and Gwen, in the comic, were in love but she was killed by the Green Goblin, after which Parker kills him (much like in the first film.) the Lizard is one of the early villains (like Electro, Mysterio, Scorpion) to plague Spiderman. much like Harry in the film, he becomes a character who wants to kill Spiderman, but he's a good man whom Spidey doesn't really want to hurt, but he's also a 6ft lizard and that complicates matters.

Doesn't the Lizard get his arms cut off or something, but he has the ability to grow them back?
