Jeez, that's rough. But I do not know this one. I bet someone gets it quick, though.
That God it wasn't a Baby Grand. Oh wait, he probably died anyway.
And it's been so long since I did this you may be the only competing today anyway. Eventually I'll give you enough clues that you'll figure it out.
That actually happened to me once while I was serenading a young lady... but unfortunately I didn't have the blow-up raft to break my fall.
For the briefest of moments, I thought this might be O Lucky Man!, because even though I don't remember this scene, doesn't mean it's not there. But that lady was talking American, so...
"There Will Never be Another You" sung in a crappy 1980s movie. Where's my prize?
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP
Yes, Marilyn, but which crappy 80's movie?
Nevermind, Bill just got it. Again!
Did Bill just win Round 2?Do we get two clips today since it's been so long?
This is so much fun! I can't wait til next Monday!
Yeah, Bill pretty much ruins the fun for everyone. Once Bill wins I'm never doing this again.
Thanks to Marilyn handing me the song title!Here I come, The Wings Hauser Collection!
Why does everyone hate me for winning?
I typed in "guy singing 'there will never be another you' from fire escape in a movie" into Google, but it didn't give me anything.I don't know how Bill does it.
Bill-We hate it when our friends become successful.
That's Katherine Borowitz in the clip, aka Mrs. John Turturro. Years and years ago (over 20), I sat next to her for a production of some Shakespeare play in Central Park and she looked so much like a woman I had slept with once some years before that that I spent the first half of the play trying to figure out if it was the woman I had known in the Biblical sense or the woman I had known from the Fruzen Glazen commercial.Ah, the 80s.
Yeah, Marilyn, thanks for giving the song away for Bill to look up on IMDB where they list what songs are used in what movies. Nice going! You could've done that yourself and gotten the point instead and then we wouldn't all hate Bill so much.
Fox, you should have signed your google search "Bill." It brings back the good results for him personally.
Arbo, why do you not show up on time to make this a game? Aaaargghhhh!!!
Arbo, why do you not show up on time to make this a game? Aaaargghhhh!!!...Greg-Remember that movie Eight Men Out?That's what's going on here.
The fix is in.
Yeah, Arbo! Don't you know Greg hates me and doesn't want me to win??Actually, Fox, I typed in the song title along with something like "piano falling movie". That brought up a hit on "The Films of George Roy Hill", which led me to victory.
Because your afternoon doldrums are my early morning scramble to wake, feed and dress two children under the age of 5 while trying to find my wife's house/car keys so she can get to work on time and I need the bathroom like nobody's business.
I need the bathroom like nobody's business.That's what laptops are for!
My laptop is an old issue of Gent.
I always pegged you as a Swank man.
Is there no love for Dude or Nugget?
It appears there is not. My humblest apologies.
Maybe I'll host a version of Name that Movie, with nothing but screen shots featuring Thai superstar Somlek Sakdikul. Trust me on this, he's one of the funniest guys in movies today.
Peter, you could stump me on practically every movie you review outside of the classic Hollywood ones.
TCM's website has a 'name that movie' sort of thing, except they post four frames and then you have to guess.It's not more fun than Greg's game, but at least they let me play.
You can play here too, at least for one more week until Bill wins. Then. I. Am. Done. I am never doing this shit again.
Nope, I'm always in class when you do it. And without me here to stop Bill, it's game over, man. GAME OVER!
Greg - I don't understand why my success with this game has so turned you off the whole enterprise. You didn't talk like this when Arbogast smoked the competition last time.
Bill, it's not you. It's that it's very little competition. It bugged me the first time too. If you recall, that's why I switched it from Saturday to Monday, because Arbo breezed through it. So that's it. Just doesn't seem like much of a competition that's all.
Maybe you do fewer contests, but make them more complicated, like that first one, with the clues and the poems and so forth. You know, that contest I won. Honestly, that one was a blast. I know it was a bit of a nightmare for you, but you built up the announcement, it was far more involved, and I remember that you said you got a lot of action on it.
Yeah, I've been thinking of trying something like that again. Maybe as a part of the October festivities.
One of the things that was so cool about that earlier contest was the "scavenger hunt" feel. There could only be one winner, of course (which was me), but you found people hung up on the same clue, and it was like everyone was in it together.
And I'm home again. Anyway, I did like that everyone all at once feel that game had. And speaking of everyone all at once, lately, it feels like the old gang (you know, all of us) has been kind of out of synch lately. Rick shows up sporadically, Fox comes in late, Arbo hasn't been around much, Marilyn is here and there, I take off a couple of days at a time and so on. It makes me kind of sad in a way. Are we all getting bored with each other or maybe all hitting the blogging doldrums at the same time?
I've noticed the out of synch thing, too, and I don't know what it is. I hope it's not permanent, but outside of TOERIFC, there hasn't been a long, multi-person discussion (or zany wacked-out joke-a-palooza) in a long time.And what's odd is that there are more of us now, so you'd think there would always be someone around, some group, but that hasn't been the case lately.Okay, great, now I'm crying!
Yeah, really, what the hell's up with everyone? I'm not trying to point fingers (struggles mightily to keep index finger on keyboard) but you and I always seem ready to go with the flow except we've hitched our wagon to a bunch of deadbeats. (rethinks last statement before realizing backspace key is broken)uh... a ha ha... of course, Rick, Marilyn, Arbo, Fox... I'm just joking, ha ha. No but seriously, where's Pat (both of 'em!), Ed, Ryan... well, okay, Ryan's pretty dependable, Krauthammer, Kimberly, Brian (oh wait, he just commented on another post) ... anyway, you get the point. I mean, if you can't get a bunch of worthless, off-color jokes going with Plan 9 clips or any of my posts on The Invisible Edge then you're just not trying. Or how about your posts? They're ripe for lots of pointless jibber-jabber too! Maybe we've underestimated everyone and they actually want thoughtful discussion. Boy, how weird would that be?
Yeah! My stuff is just begging to be accompanied by senseless, juvenile comments! I mean, what the fuck!?I really don't know. I hope it's just a phase, really, because often, when nothing's happening in our general neighborhood, I feel lost.
Yeah! My stuff is just begging to be accompanied by senseless, juvenile comments!Exactly! I knew you'd understand. People probably just have stupid things like life going on around them.
Ryan... well, okay, Ryan's pretty dependable...I'll show you dependable.*scurries off*
Come back here with my show!
No!... wait, damn, I guess I came back, didn't I?
