I made a mental note of what you were drinking--Kentish Town 1698, IIRC-- and will look for it tomorrow and perhaps drink it "live" during the next meet up:

I very rarely drink but the weather is nice and i'm doing some painting and having a Strongbow apple cider, which is alright. Nice and dry. Last drink i had was two weeks ago and it was a Guinness.

OK--you may be able to watch "Walking Distance" in its entirety here:

https://www.cbs.com/shows/the-twilight-zone-classic/video/621784048/the-twilight-zone-walking-distance

I just did and I'm not a member, just clicked on it and voila!. Five minutes of commercials between breaks but it's still worth it. And turn the sound way up so you can hear the score and get the full benefit. Do not be in a rush!

Seems to be limited to the US. But no worries, I'll get to this series at some point, if only to know what you're all talking about. smile

Just finished watching "Walking Distance". I'm not sure that I have seen it before. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Herrmann's music is an excellent support to, not just to what's going on screen but also to the underlying emotions.

Thanks for the link, Howard.

Ah the wonders of a VPN! No ad breaks either.

Looks like the link is kinder to the [Scottish-]Welsh than Norwegians. big grin
Hey FB, I'm just about to wrap up the WD thread on the other side. Come on by for a thorough listening experience, original soundtrack or 3 re-recordings, whatever suits your fancy.

I've been following the discussions and listening to the various versions. Now that I have the actual episode in mind I'll head back and have another read.

I came up bupkis in my search for the 1698...back to my usual bathwater beer. wink

Sampling a bottle of Gaffel Kölsch. I'm wary of bottles, because there is often the "skunky" presence and this Gaffel Kölsch is no exception. Even when the skunked scent dissipates, the memory of it remains and I can still smell it. frown

The beer itself is actually rather nice, and I would get it again if I could find it in can form.

I think I've vaguely heard about that, Jim.

I've had a number of peculiar beers tonight, but I'm in no condition to make a run-down.

I neglected to mention that I drank a Budweiser Budvar aka "Czechvar" with the Haluski I had for dinner last night. A fine beer, indeed. I'd had one in bottle form, but it wasn't very good, I gave the Czechvar another try, this time in the can, and it was outstanding.

Hey Thor, I have downloaded Chrome, so whenever you do your next chat, I can try to use your preferred interface. Worth a try at least.

Looking forward to the next chat, whenever that occurs.

It's a strange thing I've noticed with people who don't like Bud.
They get really angry towards people who do.
I don't drink those IPA or dark or pale ales, but I don't berate people who do, cos their taste doesn't align with mine. I'd never call it p!ss or swill cos I don't like the taste of it.
But I notice anti-Bud drinkers get a bit upset about it.
I've got a brother in law who NEVER FAILS to make some snarky comment whenever we're at the same do, and I'm drinking a Budweiser.
I mean, it REALLY seems to bother him (I've even bought a T-Shirt with the Budweiser logo on it - £4 from Asda - to wind him up next time I see him) wink
He is one of those hipster drinkers though, who needs to know the hops were rolled on the thighs of virgins and it was brewed in a Victorian cellar for 1000 years to evoke it's dark flavours (or something like that).
Is it because it's one of the Top selling beers or something?
I've always found it very peculiar.


This guy's beer review sums up my own memory of what American Budweiser tastes like. He gives a fair summary of everything Budweiser is and isn't. Like I said before, it's been well over 20 years since I've had a sip of the stuff.

Had a great time at the weekly Monty Norman Zoom get together. We decided to veer away from our usual Dr No discussion...

...and I'm so glad we did! Sure, there were lots of seemingly endless pregnant pauses--broken up by the occasional clearing of the throat and someone asking "Did you say something?", but a splendid time was had by all!

We all owe so much to Monty Norman, but not as much as John Barry does.

Those pregnant pauses say so much, and underscore how much of human communication is non-verbal.

Jim, thank you for facilitating this morning's meeting. I'm sorry I missed it. I was busy brainstorming on topics for future meetups.

For those who don't know, the Monty Norman Fan Meetup occurs via Zoom each Tuesday morning at 7 am, regardless of which time zone you are in. Hope to see you next week.

I tried to attend, but I received an error message that the "meeting was full". I will check-in at 6:45a when the next Monty Norman meet-up is scheduled. I will have an agenda prepared.

I will have an agenda prepared.

1. Calypso Adaptations: The "kick-ass" action cues of 1962.
2. John Barry: arranger whose "007" theme comes a distant second to the James Bond Theme (composed by Monty Norman).
3. Calypso tunes, Robert Mitchum, and the "Dr No" theme that never was.
4. The James Bond Theme (composed by Monty Norman).
5. Calypso tunes and road rage, 1962 style!

Don't forget to add:
6. Monty Norman's important contributions to the foundation of Studio One.
7. Maya Angelou as (possible) first pick over Diana Coupland.
