How To Play:
You all know the game "Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon"???

If not, you basically think of any famous person's name and then think of someone "connected" to that person. Then you think of someone "connected" to person # 2 and so on until you reach Kevin Bacon and it all has to be done in six steps (connections) or less.
A connection could mean that it's a person they were married to or someone they did a film with or someone they are otherwise related to.

Rules:
This thread is similar, but you don't have to bring it back to Kevin Bacon. We just keep posting names of someone that is somehow connected to the person in the last post and mention how they are connected.

Example:
I start with John Travolta.
Someone else posts that John Travolta was in the movie "Face Off" with Nicholas Cage.
Someone else posts that Nicholas Cage was married to Lisa Marie Presley

...and so on...



So, I'll start it off with Joe Pesci.

Muddy
14-09-2009, 01:42 PM
A verse in Robert Service's poem The Cremation of Sam McGee goes thus:

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee.

There was a character in PeeWee Herman's Big Adventure named Large Marge.

sometime I think I live on a different planet. I don't know most of the people you guys seem to take as "classic".

It's probably the fact that I grew up in France and didn't speak much english before 4/5 years ago.
Also the age difference might be a factor.

But analyzing most of you guys posts, I came to the conclusion that you are all aliens.

Same story with my wife.
So many classic songs she's never even heard.

I introduced her to Led Zeppelin 8 years ago! :sqeek:
Same thing with a lot of other bands.

When Revenge of the Sith came out in theatres, I discovered that she hadn't seen ANY of the Star Wars movies. Didn't even know what it was. :sqeek:
(We have become immune to how pervasive simple knowledge of these things are. For example, I started to notice all kinds of Star Wars references in other things. You might hear "I'm your father" in a commercial or something. And I realized there's a whole subset of our culture that she's missing out on.)
So, my dilemna...
Do I start showing her the Star Wars movies at Episode I, II, III, IV, V, VI ???
Or do I start her off the way we all started off, with IV ???
Daunting task, too, getting a woman interested in Star Wars, who's not normally interested in Sci-Fi movies. She watches them with me, but could care less about the Sci-Fi aspect. If it's a really good movie, on the whole, she'll certainly enjoy it but doesn't gravitate to them.
She agreed to watch the first one and see if she wanted to continue.
I thought it would be best if she started with the same one we all started with.
We watched IV. She wasn't overly impressed, but open to seeing V.
We watched V and then she wanted to see VI, to see how the story turned out.
After watching VI, she was growing more intrigued with the characters and the plot and so she wanted to see I.
We watched I. Not the greatest of the series, but she still wanted to continue, to see if II would be better and by this time, she really wanted to see how that cute kid became so evil.
By the time we had finished watching II, she was absolutely dying to see III.

The whole experience was really cool for me. It's almost like reliving the "magic of the first time" because I get to witness the "first time" through my wife's eyes. And this is a regular occurrence with us because I am continually introducing her to "new" movies and music as we go through life together.

At least once a month, I'll catch myself saying "You've never seen .... ?!?!?" :sqeek:

You ever seen that picture of a snake eating it's own tail. That is the kind of relationship that exists between science and SF. They live off each other. There have been many modern developments which have their origins in the world of SF. In fact many of the scientists point to the SF stories that inspired their ideas. And of course the SF writers are inspired in part by new research and developments.

Many people think SF is about the science, but for many of the great SF writers that was only part of the story. They set their stories in different worlds to explore the human condition and how people would react and interact. It was ultimately about people, morals and issues, many of which concern us today.

Which is actually an interesting story, I used to watch Star Trek originals on tv with my grampa in his room and only when my grandma wasn't there. She LOATHED tv and would have nothing to do with it. And she forbid us to watch tv with him in his room, but when she wasn't there..... hee hee hee.

That's another wierd story... he had his own bedroom and she had TWO of her own. They were called the "Green room" and the "Red room". I never did understand why she had two bedrooms, when she only slept in the one...

Muddy
17-09-2009, 03:23 PM
I think it was because it was there. Why let a perfectly good room go to waste? Paint it red, throw some zebra patterned pillows in there. Great place to go in, shut the door and scream. Maybe it gave them a neutral place to meet.

"Grandpa come here, I'm not going near your TV."
"I can't come in there Grandma, I'm watching TV."
"OK, I'll meet you in the Red Room at precisely 9:26 1/2."

Yes, none of us like to think of those sweet old folk grinding uglies, but just listen at night when the house is quiet. Houses often make strange noises.
