I know what you mean. All of my top 10 lists have at least 63 items on them. With just three I have to consider how I present myself. Should I be edgy or sophisticated? Or should I go obscure and see if anyone shares my interest in, say, '60s Franco/Italian film scores? Oh well. It's late. I'll just try this with the first three to enter my head.

Bands: I like a lot of genres, but I'll stick with pop to keep it simple.

The Police (broke up before they could suck)
Nine Inch Nails (not so fortunate)
Johnny Cash

That was easy.

Authors:

Robert A. Heinlein
Raymond Chandler
Kurt Vonnegut
Henry Miller

Whoops. Slipped a little there.

Movies:

Star Wars. (The first one. Not Episode 1, the first one. Not the special edition, the first one. The one where Han shot first.)
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead
Fallen Angels (Wong Kar Wai)
North by Northwest (go figure)

Dang! I did it again. Waitaminute:

Chasing Amy
The Big Sleep
Reservoir Dogs
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels

Ok, this is useless. I'm going to bed. Now watch; I'll wake up in an hour and add 9 more to each list. I forgot Sublime! I suck at this. Mad Razz

I'm with ya Kyle, it would probably be easier for me to list the things I don't like. When it comes to music and art, well I'm a musician and an artist. I was raised on classic rock and metal. I really like Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom, Mondo Cane, Tomahawk) Dax Riggs (Acid Bath, Agents of Oblivion, Deadboy and the Elephant men, And most of his solo work) and the Black Keys, JJ Grey, I love Slayer, but I listen to a lot of blues and southern rock/jam bands to keep me spirits up and not be so angry and aggresive all the time. See what I mean. scratch

As far as authors, I'm a magazine guy. Hot Rod, Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords, Pipes & Tabacco, Nat Geo, Field & Stream, ect. Basically it all interests me, and obviously I like my Mustangs, pipes, fishing, hunting, art ect.

Movies/tv shows: classics, twilight zone, Alfred Hitchcock, horror, scifi, south park Razz
American pickers, antique roadshow, dr. G medical examiner, and anything earth science, outdoors, Nat geo, astrology, aliens. It all interests me.

I'm might be schizo, and if I'm not then Nick definitely is! jocolor lol!

You probably won't be too surprised to know that I also like old sweaters with leather patched elbows, Old Spice cologne, and PBR...

Not a lot of folks are familiar with McMurtry. Even less so with The Hellecasters. Good to see you are rev.


Cheers,

McCurtry has one of the best lyrics, and I quote it often just because it is so awesome:

though I never intended to bend the rules
whiskey don't make liars it just makes fools
so I didn't mean to say it... but I meant what I said
too long in the wasteland, too long in the wasteland
must of gone to my head

Love it.

Amen rev.

McMurtry is gifted with his storytelling lyrics, isn't he?

Love "Choctaw Bingo". Lots of imagery in that one.

Also "We Can't Make It here Anymore". Hits the old nail right on the head, that one.

And not to forget "Fireline Road", "Lights of Cheyenne", "Just Us Kids" or especially "God Bless America".

Hard hitting, tell-it-like-it-is, pull no punches, raw and in your face. Modern day troubadour.

Caught his act a few years ago with his 3-pc band an a small club in Seattle, and they were freaking awesome!

Hellecasters are scary good pickers. They're all monsters and technically several orders of magnitude above and beyond mere mortal men! Pity they aren't playing together anymore.

Cool



Cheers,

RR

I've never checked out hellcasters, but definitely dig on McMurtry. "We can't make it here anymore" was the song that grabbed my mind.

Nice thread idea Rev.

Like many here (I suspect) I'm having a hard time getting down to three. I can usually do a fairly solid top 20 on most things, but getting to top 10 or 5 always gets sticky. So anyhow, I don't know if these are my real top 3s, but they are certainly up there.

Bands on disc: Foofighters, Alice in Chains, Nirvana (Honourable mentions to: Gnarls Barkley, Silverchair, Dubstep, Ellie Goulding remixes, Incubus, perfect circle, soundgarden, Weezer, Jack Wall, Yoshihisa Hirano and Hideki Taniuchi, 3 doors down)
Bands live: Nickelback, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, counting crows (I've seen the Foo's a couple of times when they toured the UK and they put on a very minimum effort show. Its sad to say as I really love them. But when I saw Nickleback live... Holy ****, those guys can rock. Counting crows has to go on there as I remember seeing them once when the lead singer walked on stage, did a massive guitar jump and split his trousers, then ignored it to do a 3 hour set with his ass hanging out so people didn't have to wait for him to go and get changed. Top guy!)

Authors (Tough one). Peter F Hamilton, George RR Martin (I liked him before it was cool!) and Joe Abercrombie. (Honourable mentions to: Terry Pratchett - I love the guy but sadly in the last few books his humour is faded and you can really see the effects of his alzheimers kicking in - Karl Marlantes, Robert Mason, Raymond E Feist, Weis & Hickman, Joe Haldeman, Timothy Zahn, Alan Moore, Max Brooks... agh, too many)

Movies... ah you're killing me: The Right Stuff, Aliens, Dances with wolves. (Honourable mentions: Screw it, I've got about 550 DVD's lying around here, far too many favourites to list, and I'm already changing the three choices too much).

The movie Buck uses horses to teach us so much about ourselves. I think it would be a great movie for all new parents to watch.

A lady in my office has a troubled 18 year old son. I paid her to watch the movie.
