  1. Ok, gigi-tastic, let us have it! Until you do, remember this...
  2. Lastly, a rap battle (NSFW)
  3. For the Mary Poppins (and KBell) fans... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ggfes8
  4. I'm not so sure. If that's who I think it is he built the Titanic. Not a good history there...
  5. No worries! You made it in (and hopefully remembered your birthday) so...
  6. If @gigi-tastic hasn't responded by later today we'll swap. Unfortunately Cameron H. is next up so he needs to swap as well. I think that makes @taylorannephoto next up. Taylor, can you make a pick if needed?
  7. I also wanted to post that @Cameron H. will be in and out for a while. His father passed away yesterday. Many condolences Cameron!

    Musical Mondays Week 53 Florence Foster Jenkins

    I think a big part of the problem was the compressed timeline. IIRC the movie started in 1944, shortly before her death. In reality her performances had gone on for years. She started making records in 1941! I mean, just think about it. In that era nothing got done quickly, certainly not putting on grand performances in two halls, making at least one record and distributing it, hiring and rehearsing a new accompanist, etc. She died on November 26th, 1944. Even if the movie started on January 1st that's only just shy of 11 months to do all that.

    Musical Mondays Week 53 Florence Foster Jenkins

    Love The Shaggs! My Pal Foot-Foot! In last week's thread I posted a video from a lady named Mrs. Elva Miller. She had a similar bad singing voice but she went for popular music.

    Off-Topic: I still can't believe it's Chris Sarandon doing Jack Skellington's speaking voice in The Nightmare Before Christmas. When I think of Chris I think of Prince Humperdink and the vocals don't match.

    Musical Mondays Week 53 Florence Foster Jenkins

    I agree with this. There wasn't enough background as to why she was a "sensation" before the end. Wikipedia says Cole Porter was a frequent attendee of her performances so her surprise at the end of the movie is incorrect.

    Not a biopic but still... William Hung: Hangin' with Hung

    Musical Mondays Week 53 Florence Foster Jenkins

    Hugh Grant, for all his sweetness and "loyalty", was one-note. Every problem could be solved with enough application of money. I also wondered how long he had been dating Rebecca Ferguson. I thought he was married to her at first, not to Florence. (Although the marriage to Florence was probably not legitimate since she could never prove she had been divorced.) Also, why did she keep the name Jenkins even though she basically was separated after she got syphillis?

    I didn't see any chives in the bathtub potato salad.
  16. I'm OK with that. I'm a big Rosalind Russell fan.
  17. I have my room started. Not sure how to get the link. Found it. Thanks Grudlian! The Google extension made it much easier. Here's my room
  18. Side note: I have several favorite movies that are more Unspooled than HDTGM. I would like to do Rabbit showings sometime of them. Is that allowable? I would also be willing to do a Classics showing of Old Dogs. That got added to Prime and I haven't seen it. The podcast episode was hilarious.
  19. Also, has anyone done Rabbit showings via actual streaming services? i assume I paste in this Amazon link and log in to my account in the Rabbit browser?
  20. Is anyone doing a Rabbit showing? If not I could try tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern. I can't do any over the weekend though. I'm on call for work starting at midnight tonight.
  21. I know this is an old video (and there are other versions) but I saw this again last night and recognized more movies thanks to Musical Mondays. This link is for the search results showing other versions.
  22. What gigi-tastic might look like...
  23. I wonder if Florence Foster Jenkins ever met Mrs. Miller?
  24. I'll watch this after I finish the prequel, John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.
