  • A Film (or two) for Every State   14 years 7 weeks ago

    ok so there are many, many movies filmed in Utah. lets face it if you need a good barren wasteland, rough mountain landscape, or western desert monument valley type of a backdrop for your film there is no better place. a few such movies include: Mission Impossible 2, Galaxy Quest, Thelma and Louise, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Octopussy, Dumb and Dumber, Footloose, Forest Gump, Independence Day, and The Ten Commandments. The list of western films is quite extensive as well some notable films include: Have Gun Will Travel, Maverick, Rio Grande, She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, and The Outlaw Josey Wells. Believe it or not the movie filming industry is big business in Utah. It is also home to the wonderful Sundance Film Festival in Park City.

  • 10 Greatest female artists in rock history.   14 years 7 weeks ago

    Look guys, I may of came off a little brash ok. But you know I consider artists to encompass everything. Songwriting included. I dont think Aretha sucks or anything, I just dont see what people see in her to make her worshipped! I respect and understand all you guys theories here, I just dont share the same love for her as other people.

    I like the theme to Grosse Pointe. "Sex Bomb" by Tom Jones. Though, I wouldn't listen to it on it's own.

  • Albums to Buy   14 years 7 weeks ago

    The guy who sings that song is actually a member of Union Station, which is Alison Krauss's band. He joined the band recently, so only from "So Long So Wrong" to the present is he part of the band. He sings at least a couple of songs on the album. For my money, though, the best Alsion Krauss album I own is "Everytime You Say Goodbye." There is so much great bluegrass music, including Flatt and Scruggs, the founders of the modern 5 string banjo bluegrass style, but others include JD Crowe, the New Grass Revival, Sam Bush, and others for music with vocals. For music without vocals, I recommend highly "Tales From the Acoustic Planet Vol. 2 : The Bluegrass Sessions" by Bela Fleck and also "Drive" by Bela Fleck. The soundtrack to "O Brother," though, is primarily music that is about the roots of Southern Folk, Blues and Gospel, and the beginnings of American Music. If you like the other music on the album, a great Delta Blues album is "Call Down the Thunder," by Guy Davis. Alison Krauss's albums almost always have a gospel piece of some sort. Chris Thomas King's "Me, My Guitar, and the Blues" is an interesting fusion of old and new genres. Some old Bonnie Raitt albums (priot to the 90s) really explore the beginnings of blues music in the USA and are much better than he pop albums. The Staple Singers are great for gospel, as is Sam Cooke's old music with the Soul Stirrers. And even Alison Krauss does a gospel album with the Cox Family that is quite good. I am very happy to have been turned on to Krauss's music because (besides having a voice like an angel) her explorations into the roots of American music always wield great results.
