hate love hate you
Go back to "love." I hate myself enough for the both of us—after all, I just rented The Beggar's Opera.
omfg, I need this movie in my life right now :(
ps- the super exaggerated mole made my lol so hard.
The first scene with him was, er, longer than this post implies, but just imagine if my computer ever needed to be repaired. "Why does this folder have 242342323525235 pictures of Roger Daltrey sticking his face into boobies?"
Is that seriously all that happens?
I might love you again
AHAHA OH WOW
I was reading about the summary somewhere and you know, I think I'm just gonna stop bothering with trying to understand this film.
It probably would've made more sense if I hadn't gotten bored and started fast-forwarding before Roger even came on.
I just glanced at Wikipedia and it sort of makes sense now.
No shame in that, I do it with all of Roger's movies. I'm pretty sure my first viewing of Tommy started at the Cousin Kevin scene (albeit that was my mother's fault)
Wikipedia told me the play had a sequel. AAAHHHHH??
's cut of Tommy
starts with the "Eyesight to the Blind" scene.
cut of Tommy starts with twenty minutes of "TIA HAVE YOU SEEN THE COUSIN KEVIN SCENE YET IT'S SO AMAZING COME HERE RIGHT NOW WATCH LOOK AT THIS" followed by five minutes of unimpression.
My first viewing was with my mom because she's always told me tales of how she skipped school 23523532523 times to see it when it was in theatres. Watching the Uncle Ernie scene was MODERATELY AWKWARD.
I'm almost totally sure my mother was only so excited to show me Tommy because a boy I liked at school looked like Cousin Kevin. Needless to say my inappropriate gigglefits ruined any kind of relationship we could have have.
I just love the original "Christmas" too much to sit through the movie version. LOL.
i mostly just go "hmm...roger's not in it until eyesight to the blind so...." *skips ahead* xD
maaan, i need to see this movie. and i'm gonna be all jealousy-y when claira gets it for Christmas. hahaa
I think I'd be way too scared to ask for a Daltrey movie for Christmas, LMFAO.
Unless Lisztomania came out on DVD, in which case I'd buy a copy for everybody
yeah, i would definitely never ask for a roger movie for Christmas either. i sneaked buying roger movies from amazon when i got to school hahaha.
haha i'm not ashamed, just my parents would not approve of butts. pffftt..hahaha.
HAHAHA. I'm not sure what I'm more amused by: the fact that you had this conversation with your dad, or the fact that your dad knows there's butts in McVicar.
I LOVE BEGGAR'S OPERA. I have this on VHS and have seen it so many times I can recite along with most of it...which I know is shameful as it's by no means the best production ever. But Roger's a good Captain MacHeath (re: wanton womanizer). It's an oddly sexy performance, over all.
As for the I LIKE THE LADIES song, I think it went something like:
When the heart of a man is depressed with cares
The mist is dispelled when a woman appears
Like the notes of a fiddle she sweetly, sweetly
Raises the spirits and charms our ears
Aaaaand I forgot the rest but there was something about breast-caressing in there. Good stuff. :)
HAHA, yes, that song was pretty fabulous. (And, gosh, what IS it with The Beggar's Opera and breast-caressing?) I have to say that I got an odd kick out of his singing, as bizarre as it was.
