    You're right Buddy, but you labeled them # 28, and 29. They are # 29 and 30. I knew what you meant though.

  • The New Critical Underground Guide to Albums of 2001   15 years 15 weeks ago

    You certainly would not be out of place in the group. You are very critical, your judgements are your own, and you have very good taste. I highly, highly respect you and your criticisms.

    Can you join? Honestly, not right now. 15 members are alot, and it keeps me entirely too busy as it is. I recently had to temporarily put our DVD ratings on hold because I simply could not keep up with everything as it is (though I do hope to start it back up soon). I decided early on that 15 members was going to be my limit for the group. Any more, and I will work myself to death on this puppy.

    If we ever lose a member, you will certainly be in the running as a replacement.

    I hope you take no offence; my sanity simply will not allow any more members right now.

    Still friends, I trust?

    Shalom, y'all!

    Would I be allowed to get involved? I mean, I have some decent objective criticisms, dontcha think Les?

  • 0005. Some Under-Rated Films   15 years 15 weeks ago

    You know what? I think Showtime and its sister channels run this one every once in a while. I'm rather sure I've seen that name pop up on my program guide before. Pretty good, eh? I'll have to check it out next time it's on.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Shalom, y'all!

    Well, if you don't dig the guide, that's cool. We created the guide in order to help people find great art and avoid turkeys, and if the guide doesn't really help you in that respect, then it certainly isn't for you.

    I will add that none of the critics in the group is what I would call the average guy or gal. I am proud that we are usually critisized for being too tough on work and not the other way around. Rather than people complaining that we rate Rambo or Sleepless in Seattle too highly (which was an occasion problem with the older version of the Critical Underground (the pre-New group), we usually have people complaining that we rated, say, Guided by Voice's latest album too low. I can dig this. When we give a high rating, I want it to mean something. I'd rather us be too tough than too easy on work, and I believe we certainly are not on the wrong side of the line right now. For instance, one gander at our guide for 2001 films reveals not a single film rated above *** 1/2. In fact, most films by far have received * 1/2!

    The folks in the group are certainly not average. I selected each and every one of them because they displayed excellent independent critical judgement; every member brings something different to the group, and I feel the group's ratings and guides can easily compete with any other guide out there.

    I don't mind your comments in the least; you know I love a decent debate! :)

    Shalom, y'all!
