Point Break was amazing when you were 14, not so much these days. Today the best part is the first few minutes, and only if you love tracking shots like me. Kathryn Bigelow is really good at these.

Strange Days was full of these, most POV (not that kind you perverts), sadly none seem to be on Youtube. Damn, might need to track down a copy and buy it.

Strange Days is great!   Just watched it last night  -  Juliette Lewis in the buff ain't bad either.   The concept in a strange days was groundbreaking at the time,  as was the POV cinematography.

Johnny Utah saying "vaya con dios" to Bodhi is cinematic perfection IMO.

Yep.  they were filming a sequence to this at Neptunes Net in Malibu one day while I was driving by.  I pulled off to the side road and parked and I walked up to somebody who was watching and I asked him what was going on.   He said they were filming some surfing movie starring Keanu Reeves and that they're filming a sequence with Keanu and Lori Petty inside.   I did not know at the time who Lori Petty was, but of course I know who Keanu was - from Bill and Ted's movies.   I think it was December 1990, and I just said that guy can't act for shit,  and I walked off as I was still cold because I just gotten out of the water from surfing.   Sure enough it came out a few months later and although it has some seriously cheesy lines, they have been firmly imprinted in the annals of film history-  and they used to have a point break live Theater show in LA where the audience members would participate,  but I'm not sure if that's still going on.   Cult Classic for sure.   Still to this day, some of the best foot chase, car chase, and skydiving scenes ever filmed.   Difficult film to understand if you're not a surfer because surfing in itself is very seductive and will take over your life if you're not careful.   One of my favorite films of all time.   The reboot however, is an absolute disaster 4/10.   The cinematography in the reboot is pretty damn good in my opinion,  but that's about the only thing that is good.

@ghost and HopHead -

Friend #1 moves to another city and asks Friend #2 to 'look out' for his missus while he is away. They kinda consider eachother best friends.

Friend #1 and his missus havevsome baggage because she feels the relationship isn't really going anywhere as #1 is more concerned about his career/higher education, than worrying about the future of the relationship. Regardless, they do long distance.

Friend #2 spends lots of time with #1's missus, while #1 is away, everything from movies, dinners and music festivals, but ensures everything is 'platonic'.

One year goes by and #1 moves back to the same city, as his missus and #2, only to be blindsighted with a break-up. #1 takes it on the chin and starts dating a girl from the other city he was working in for a year, and she even moves in with him. #1's former missus immediately shows tons of signs that she's interested in #2. #2 cuts her off out of respect for #1.

About 6 months later, #2 can't handle it anymore and professes his love for #1's ex. #1 is pissed off and gives him an ultimatum, end it with the ex or end the friendship. #2 isn't budging and wants to continue dating the ex.

It's not number one or number two's fault.   It's the girls fault.   It never ceases to amaze me how girls cleverly mask their desire for multiple cocks -  which reminds me of that Dave Chapelle skit featuring Mike Mooney " everybody wanna BE a ni&&er, but nobody wanna be a ni&&er".  A lot of girls wanna be sluts, but they just don't wanna get caught being a slut.  She's a hoe.  Finding a quality girl is very difficult, especially where I live. Girls tend to be inundated with entitlement issues and are exceedingly superficial.   But there is always a diamond in the rough, and you find them in the least plausible of circumstances.  You see, the girl that truly loves you will stand by your side and support you no matter what.   True love is one of the most potent bonds in the world.  A year is a long time, but it's not five years or two years or three years.  If the agreement before hand was made that number one was going to be gone for one year and return, that is something they should've agreed to. If not, then they should've ended the relationship when number one left to move to another city.  Long distance relationships work only when there is a pre-existing commitment that was in place before the distance was created -  even then, it does not always work,  that is why it's critically important to test your partners resolve when you are with her.   I test people all the time, but you don't know how anyone is going to react until you test them.   Some of the best advice that my dad ever gave me is that trust is always earned – don't ever forget that.   If there is ever a question as to how much each of you are committed to a relationship,  then the best thing to do if you move away,  is to simply end it,  or say let's just date whoever we want and when I get back into town let's see where we are -  trust me, this will work in your favor every single time.   Another thing my dad taught me is that girls crave security, and how that security comes is many different forms, but the bottom line is that women crave security -  if you take that away is that they are fish out of water.   It automatically puts the ball in your court, and you have much more control over your life.   If you stay together and she winds up cheating on you, she will never tell you. But if you're not together you don't have any obligation to tell her about anything and she will be wondering what you're doing the whole time,  but the bottom line is you're not together and you get to do whatever you want.

That claim can be ascribed to many world leaders, both past and present – so I don't really give it too much credibility.  That being said, it certainly is an accurate description of Donald Trump.

A cauliflower smoothie for brekkie, absolutely nailing it with a PowerPoint presentation delivered via Skype whilst he tees off at St Andrews with Jimmy Tarbuck for some sick children etc.

i've been listening to nothing but ltj bukem for 3 days now and realized i've never seen him live.  maybe its an isolated problem because i live in the sticks, but i'm curious if there's anybody else has a dj or two they need to see before retirement hits (theirs or yours haha).

i'll add daft punk to the list too, hopefully the 2017 rumours turn out to be true.

Saw Bukem at  nocturnal Wonderland 2000, at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio. He was excellent.   Those DJs that I wanted to see from that era are not actively touring, or touring very minimally now.  Joris Voorn, Âme, Deepchord, Maurizio, Steve Lawler are a few that I would like to see.

Well, in fairness, like 25-or-whatever% of us did. The rest either didn't or were too dense to even bother with the whole charade. And we are embarrassed. As in like totally embarrassed. I guess one silver lining is that the UK and the US have been global political trend-makers, for better or worse. Maybe other countries will wake up and realize that the Neo- (Alt) Nazi- (Right) and the hardcore Brexit nationalists probably exist within their borders as well and in greater numbers than they realize. Maybe they'll actually do something about it before a Donald Fucking Trump is elected as their leader. Maybe the extremism exhibited by the Right will finally be matched by those on the Left. One can only hope. Facebook and Twitter can also fuck off. Net negative IMO.

Good points and I agree 100%.   Donald Trump will be the most scandal laden president in US history.   In four years time the GOP will be in complete shambles.   Trump and his shady business dealings, his tax returns, and everything will come to light and I will be telling every inbred chunk of petrified molasses that voted for Trump – I told you fucking so.  At this point the American people will be so sick of scandal,  unfulfilled promises,  baseless rhetoric, and  elitist fascist pigs like Trump,  that a person like Bernie Sanders, or Bernie Sanders will get elected.   The neo-progressive movement,  unfortunately it will come at a cost – much higher taxes for everybody.

And what if in 4 years his voters think he's done a good job...

Most of what he said during his campaign will never be fulfilled- that is a fact.   So, already on some of those cabinet pics he is alienating himself from the alt right or conservative religious right   Will probably get a better idea after all of this cabinet pics are made and his supreme court nomination is presented.   As for voters being happy,  I don't remember the last time most voters were happy with any president – maybe Bill Clinton as he rode the tech/.com wave in
and the country was performing well up until about late 2000.   But in any case, the bipartisan system for this country is broken and is clearly not serving the American people.   Wages will have to go up, job creation will have to go up GDP will have to improve, the debt is going to have to come down the trade deficit is going to have to narrow, the environment is going to have to be of significant importance because too many scientists and people in general think it is very important, so Trump will have to be forced to listen to them.  Russia, Iran, and North Korea will have to be dealt with aggressively and firmly.   Trade agreements will have to improve or be modified according to trump.   He should not even mention the word abortion or Roe v. Wade if he has any common sense.   Deporting illegals that have criminal records presents a challenge, but I at least agree on that one.  Immigration needs to be streamlined and overhauled.   And he's going to have to come up with a very calculated, well thought-out plan for what he said about Muslims entering the country as refugees.   Swift, methodical, and deliberate action in Syria is needed.   If he can do all these things, then he may make 60 to 70% of Americans happy and that will get him reelected.
