I am curious to know what you didnt like about the movie and if you agree that Julietee's performance in it was UNBELIEVABLY brilliant?

also, where can I get Taratino's screenplay of it? I was looking for it last year but couldnt find it anywhere :?


I always think Juliette's an excellent actress, whether or not I thought she was especially brilliant in NBK I couldn't say. The movie was just a little too surreal in spots for my taste.

You should be able to get the script from Amazon.ca. I think Amazon carries just about everything in print, and quite a bit that's not.

They were all big in the hardcore/punk scene in the early 90s, when I was in high school. Earth Crisis was a vegan-straightedge band, and Gorilla Biscuits were vegetarian - they had a song called "Cats and Dogs" that you might like. Here are the lyrics:


Man's best friend is beautiful and affectionate, an ideal pet.
Cats are the same, we make up their names and our love for them is real.
Listen up, I gotta ask you, how can we be so cruel?
You say you care, that's a lie.
My true compassion is for all living things and not just the ones who are cute so I do what I can.
I wanna save lives and I've got a plan.
Under the table he'll eat your dinner like the veggies we can't stand.
What kind of meal would he make?
We don't want to ask it.
Tradition is all that keeps him alive.
Listen up, I gotta ask how can we be so cruel?
You say you care, that's a lie.
My true compassion is for all living things and not just the ones who are cute so I do what I can.
I wanna save lives and I've got a plan.
Why am I so upset.
Don't even own a pet.
I am not trying to press my will.
I am not the first to say...
THOU SHALT NOT KILL
Full is all you want to feel.
We eat to stay alive, but it's their lives we steal.
I think we'd like to change,
but most of us are stuck, that's why cats and dogs have
ALL THE LUCK

--------------

Also, there was another great hardcore band from the 80s called Youth of Today, that have one of the best vegetarian anthems ever, called "No More"

Meat eating, flesh eating, think about it
So callous to this crime we commit
Always stuffing our face with no sympathy
What a selfish, hardened society so
No More just looking out for myself
When the price paid is the life of something else,
No More - I won't participate
We've got the power, we've got the might,
to take whatever is in sight
Not even worried it's an unfair fight
Well we've got a heart to tell us what's right
Our numbers are doubling in 88,
cause the people are starting to educate
themselves, their friends, and their families,
and we'll have a more caring, conscious society
Are you with me?
If you're with me, then say No More!

Anyone who likes punk music witha political tint ought to look out for propagandhi (they are from canada!). 2 of their songs exposed me to veganism, and i sang them for a few years before I went vegan then realized if I'm singing them so they better have some relevance in my life, so here I am now. Ohh yeah the 2 songs...

Apparently, I'm A "P.C. Fascist" (Because I Care About Both Human And Non-human lives)
<br>
Some of my otherwise brilliant and productive friends
(like scoundrels and their flags)
take final refuge in character assasinations;
they ignore the issue and deny the relation between our consumption and brutality.
So you can go ahead and roll your eyes and marginalize me
socially penalize me: play on my insecurities.
And you can feign ignorance, but you're not stupid, you're just selfish.
And you're a slave to your impulse.
And I kinda thought we all shared common threads in that we gravitated
here to challenge the conventions we've been fed by a culture that treats
(living, breathing, feeling) creatures like (biological) machines.
And if you buy that shit then how long 'till it's me who serves as your commodity?
Through (for example),
institutionalized violence and oppression of workers and women raped by sexism
(and how about native americans?).
Do you still insist on feigning indignance (aka: indignation) to reason?
To collective self-interest?
Tell you what- I'll call you on your shit,
PLEASE CALL ME ON MINE.
Then we can grow together and make this shit-hole planet better in time.
So why not consider someone else: STOP CONSUMING ANIMALS.
<br><br>
<br>
<br>
Nailing Descartes To The Wall(Liquid) Meat Is Still Murder Lyrics:
<br>
I speak outside what is recognized as the border between "reason" and "insanity".
But I consider it a measure of my humanity to be written off
by the living graves of a billion murdered lives.
And I'm not ashamed of my recurring dreams about me and a gun and a different species
(hint: starts with "h" and rhymes with "Neuman's")
of carnage strewn about the stockyards, the factories and farms.
Still I know as well as anyone that it does less good
than harm to be this honest with a conscience eased by lies.
But you cannot deny that meat is still murder.
Dairy is still rape.
And I'm still as stupid as anyone, but I know my mistakes.
I have recognized one form of oppression, now I recognize the rest.
And life's too short to make another's shorter- (animal liberation now!).

I love those lyrics too. Wow, thanks college.

peace
P.S. And at any rate, do we really want our bodies to act as graveyards for murdered innocents? :shock:

maybe i should write my own lyrics. :wink:

Well, I did try to pick lesser known artists. I loved the music from the 80s (including a bunch of the songs on your list), but I try to support the little guys whenever I can. They have such a hard time selling their stuff and they are often fighting with their publishers, distributors, and promoters.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Blimp, and Darrly Purpose are all local bands with several CDs each.

Darryl Purpose is the cousin of a good friend of mine. He was a professional gambler for many years (blackjack) and was banned from most of the casinos in the US. So he headed overseas to Sri Lanka and other places. He walked in The Great Peace March across America, then across the Soviet Union... That was when he started turning his talents to music. His style is Folk and his gift is for turning a phrase.

Steve Forbert's first album came out in 1978. He had 3 hit records in a few years, then got into a royalty dispute with his record company and spent the next 20 years not putting a single piece of music on paper, so it couldn't be stolen from him. The dispute has been settled and he is back performing again, but his music tends to be a little more cynical than it was... who can blame him?

The Celts lived across northwestern Europe before they were overrun by those barbarians from the south known as Romans. Each celtic tribe had its own music and dance and culture. There are 7 celtic cultures that struggle to survive. These can be found in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Manx (between England and Ireland), Brittany (in France), and Alicia (in Spain)... I know that's only 6 but I can't remember the 7th. (Did you like the movie Braveheart?) The Great Big Sea mixes traditional celtic music with the energy of rock and roll to produce a live band that is hard to beat. (My wife is flying to Minnesota so she can see them play at the Minnesota State Fair in a few weeks.)

Beausoleil is big down in Louisiana on the Cajun/Zydeco music scene. (Did you like the movie The Big Easy?)

Much of this music can be sampled online.

Darryl Purpose: http://www.darrylpurpose.com/ Check out "Victory in the Struggle", "I Will Run" (these should appeal to the activist in you), "Christmas in the Trenches", "Late for Dinner", "Halfway Home", and "Mr. Schwinn".

Steve Forbert: http://www.steveforbert.com/ Check out "Romeo's Tune", "Schoolgirl", and "Born to Late".

Blimp: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/7/blimpus_music.htm Check out "Monsters", and "Market".

Great Big Sea: http://www.greatbigsea.com/ Check out "When I am King", and "The Night Pat Murphy Died". Road Rage is by far their best CD. The energy and audience participation are super!

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy: http://www.bbvd.com/av/index.htm Check out "I Wanna Be Like You", "I'm Not Sleeping", and "Ol MacDonald" (a tribute to Frank Sinatra).

Enjoy!

My room is a mess, I can't get dressed, gotta be out by 8o'clock...

Oops, wrong song. Thanks for the lyrics Will, brings back memories. Did you ever see the video for No More? It's a little older than early 90's though, probably around "88". :D

If anybody wants a free listen to the Gorilla Biscuits, you can listen on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... c&n=507846
