Nalts posted a funny video he made by using takethislollipop.com. Since I haven't posted a video of any kind in ages...I thought I would do the same.

The Pleasure Seekers (1964)

The Pleasure Seekers (1964) is a remake of a movie I've never seen called Three Coins In The Fountain (1954). The movie is about 3 American girls looking for love in Spain. The movie follows all 3 of the girls as they fall in love & try to win over their men. For the most part the movie lacks any real drama, and kept me bored for 2 hours. The 3 girls are played by Carol Lynley, Pamela Tiffin & Ann-Margret. Brian Keith also has a role in the film, and even though I'm fond of his work, the character he plays annoys me. The only reason to watch this movie is the 4 musical numbers performed by Ann-Margret, and I've embedded 3 of them below.

Song Fight Review: His Last Few Days

The last fight I reviewed over at Song Fight was titled "Ashes", and my favorite entry was from Steve Durand. Steve only lost by 5 votes, but that dropped him all the way down into a tie for 6th. The winners were The Midnight Society & DuToVa. I didn't care for either of those entries, but they tied for 1st.

A new batch of songs can be found over at Song Fight, so I suggest you go pick your favorite songs for the current round.

My favorites from the fight His Last Few Days are posted below.

Would Have Voted For:
(Right Click "Save As" on the artist's name for a MP3 of their entry.)

Mind Map That - This song includes sections about mating in mid air...Billy had to love this song. Anyways...very creative & funny take on the challenge. Loved it.

bgm - Well I'm depressed now...but that's a good thing I guess considering the direction you took. Not something that has a ton of replay value for me. After all, I can only cut my wrists so many times.

AntBut - Very pretty music. Bit sleepy for my tastes...but it's going on my mp3 player anyways. Well done, but you might want to cut off the 15 seconds of dead air at the end.

King Arthur - Another clear & well told story. Flows nicely & the story of a rocker on the road was a great choice. Too many people went with the obvious take on this title. Congrats on buckin' the trend while still rockin'.

Torrentz - You need a better singer for the chorus. Overall, it was a solid entry, and much better than any other rap entry this time around. Oh, and use the lyrics forum. COME ON PEOPLE!

(Head over to Song Fight to listen to these songs.)

AG Beats, Viktor Walters, and Nate C - I was listening...and listening...and finally it dawned on me that this isn't just a long intro...and I skipped.

Anomaly Jonez - Needs a stronger hook...hell...needs a hook. I enjoyed the vocals, even though they are a bit distorted when they get loud. It's a good start, but still needs a little more love & attention.

Bad Boys At Bat Mitzvahs - Not bad, but it needs to breathe. It reminds me of being on a date with a hot chick that just won't shut the fuck up long enough for you to even say goodbye.

Berkeley Social Scene - Vocals...ouch. Liked the lyrics & the music was ok.

Billy And The Psychotics - Couldn't get into the lyrics, and generally had a hard time focusing on this one.

Daring Front - Liked the lyrics, but the music really kept me from getting into the song completely. Nice entry.

deetak - Nothing really bad to say here, so I'm going to nitpick. "His Last Few Days" is the title, and it bugs me it's not used completely in the lyrics.

Dejected Motives - Every vocal effect you used annoyed me. Way too long...but I'd probably say the same thing if it was only 10 seconds long.

Ebola-Cide - I was interested up until you changed your focus from Larry. I was looking forward to seeing where you were going to go with that.

EggNogAdam - Sometimes I just have nothing to say. It didn't move me from neutral.

The Flight And The Grand Design - Don't think I've heard an entry from you before. The guitars really sounded bad to me, but overall the song makes me hope you enter again.

hillbilly - Static...yay...but at least you sounded like a hillbilly. Oh, and 1 minute? Really?

Hostess Mostess - Didn't hate your voice, but overall I just sort of zoned out during this.

Jeffrey Davis - This is the problem with allowing anyone to enter.

Juliet's Happy Dagger - Liking this team more & more with each song they enter. I'll forgive you for the Ohio crack, but just this once. Needs a hook of some sort, but good entry.

King Ginger - There is only 1 king in song fight...you are not him. Seems like you tried to cram more words than you should have into some parts. Find a hook.

MC Who Izzy - Were you trying to hide in the mix?

The NATIONAL FRONTBOTTOM - Funny, but honestly for a song like this I'd like for you to include WHY Billy is such a cunt....aside from spilling a beer.

The Notorious F.A.P. - You were butt raped? Did you write this in hopes the rapist would hear it & you would have your sweet revenge?

Odoriferous Valley - When I saw the collaborators in this group I was excited, but I just never got into this. Can't point to anything I really disliked, just didn't like it.

Paco del Stinko - Enjoyed the vocal performance & the music. The Tick Tocking was catchy, but there were times I just didn't care for the lyrics. GREAT entry, just missed a vote.

Planets And Bubble Pipe Media - Not bad. I was into it through the first chorus, but started to get bored. Looking forward to your next entry though.

Sep - You can't be serious.

styop quoons - The lyrics were as uninspired as your vocals. Too long.

SYNFONYC - Did you write & record this minutes after receiving a concussion?

The Yyarrell Brothers Band - Didn't like the vocals. Lyrics didn't really grab me, but I think I'd have liked it with better vocals.

This is a strange update not only because someone wrote a song about me...but because it's about me killing & raping cats? So yeah...a work of fiction for sure, but kinda funny...in a very dark sorta way.

I play MineCraft on Zack Scott's server (you can watch his MineCraft videos @ ZackScottGames), and at some point I gained a reputation as a cat killer. The reaction of the fans was really amusing, so I never confirmed or denied it, and just kinda went with it.

ldshadowlady is one of the players on Zack's server, and she made a request to Oliver Parsons (who plays on her server) to write this song.

Just so everyone is perfectly clear...I don't rape cats & I don't endorse the raping of cats. HOWEVER...if you want to throw a bag of kittens into a river...who am I to say you shouldn't...

At Long Last Love (1975)

At Long Last Love is a train wreck. Peter Bogdanovich takes stars that can't sing (one of which he's in a relationship with at the time of the filming), and not only makes them sing, but he records them as they're performing for the camera. Nothing was done in a studio & dubbed. I don't know what Cole Porter did to piss Peter off...but Peter got revenge & then some by making this film.

It tanked with the critics, it tanked at the box office, and it's commonly named as one of the worst films of all time. It was so bad that Peter himself apologized for it's lack of quality. It stars Burt Reynolds, Cybill Shepherd (Peter's irl girlfriend), Madeline Kahn (the only one who can sing) & Duilio Del Prete...unfortunately for them.

Below I've embedded 1 video twice. Each time it starts at a different number from the film...I'm not going to recommend you watch them for once...but just in case you're curious...they're there.

Song Fight Review: Ashes

The last fight I reviewed over at Song Fight was titled "You Are the Heartbeat of This Office For Sure", and my favorite entry was from Billy And The Psychotics. They finished strong at 3rd, and the winner was Manhattan Glutton who put in a solid tune. A new batch of songs can be found over at Song Fight, so I suggest you go pick your favorite songs for the current round.

My favorites from the fight Ashes are posted below.

Would Have Voted For:
(Right Click "Save As" on the artist's name for a MP3 of their entry.)

Steve Durand - This is not even close to my favorite song from Steve, but it's my top pick today. It sets a mood, tells a clear story & in my opinion should win this rather weak fight.

Berkeley Social Scene - It's not fair using your kids to gain 'cute' votes. Anyways...nice song, has some replay value.

Daring Front - 80's movie montage music. The final 30 seconds or so felt like someone was pushing a pipe cleaner in 1 ear & pulling it out the other. Otherwise...not bad. (Use the lyrics forum)

(Head over to Song Fight to listen to these songs.)

Bubble Pipe Media And Viktor Walters - This song flows like a river of peanut butter.

East Coast Coin Company - The music was ok, but I had trouble picking up the lyrics by ear at times. When reading along I just didn't find the lyrics all that creative...and with rap that's kinda important.

EggNogAdam - Once again my big issue is your lyrics, but the rest of the song didn't really grab me either.

Jacob Bernado - There's not much there, and what is there, is repetitive.

Juliet's Happy Dagger - Lyrics aren't for me.

Life In Decibels - Vocals are too low in the mix, and the music is about as catchy as 56k modem connecting to the web.

MENBAH + Swampjaw - I hate Pokemon, so I really can't say much about this without that factoring in.

The Midnight Society - WAY to slow for my personal tastes. This makes me sleepy.

Missions To Proton - I think I liked your last entry...will look forward to the next one. Still like the vocals.

Ross Durand - Honestly this is too slow for me, and not really my type of song. It's really well done, but just not for me.

SevidemiC - Flow is good...lyrics didn't interest me.

SYNFONYC - This song not only put me to sleep, but it was so offensive to the ears that it woke me up afterwards.

Hey look, a cute video for this entry.

Song Fight Review: You Are The Heartbeat Of This Office For Sure

The last fight I reviewed over at Song Fight was titled "Circle Me", and my favorite entry was from Minty Handy. I didn't pick the winner this time, but they did come in 2nd. The winner was Scott Gesser who I had ranked 3rd. A new batch of songs can be found over at Song Fight, so I suggest you go pick your favorite songs for the current round.

My favorites from the fight You Are the Heartbeat of This Office For Sure are posted below.

Would Have Voted For:
(Right Click "Save As" on the artist's name for a MP3 of their entry.)

Billy And The Psychotics - Music was catchy & I liked Denise's singing. Lyrics were ok, but again...has there been a zombie outbreak in the lyrics forum or something?

Missions To Proton - I like the vocals & personality that came through in the performance. Musically it was fine, and felt like a pep talk for dealing with all the douchebags you find in an office setting.

Caravan Ray - Funny, enjoyable music, and a cool ending. Nice work with a stupid title.

Steve Durand - The story was similar to the previous song, but I liked these lyrics a lot more. Musically it kinda bored me though, and that's why it's 1 place lower.

Manhattan Glutton - The music was amazing, and the vocals were fine. I didn't really care for some of the lyrics cause at times it seemed like something a 14 year old with a hard on would write during study hall.

heine - Sometimes the lyrics didn't flow to well, but overall it's a fun song. Sometimes I wish I could boom boom my way to the top.

(Head over to Song Fight to listen to these songs.)

Juliet's Happy Dagger - The idea isn't bad, but I'm having a hard time picturing someone blowing up the workplace just cause they weren't noticed at work. I may struggle picturing it happening, but overall it was a good entry & I dug the music. You cheated a bit by not using the last 2 words of the title, but that's just a pet peeve of mine.

Berkeley Social Scene - Nothing stood out about this, and at times I could have used the lyrics in front of me.

Bubble Pipe Media And Viktor Walters - Someone with a frog in his throat...whispers...more frog... I'd rather kiss a frog than listen to this one.

chthXchthXchthX - I think someone forgot to tell you Song Fight is a songwriting contest. You don't literally have to beat your instruments to death.

EggNogAdam - Love the vocals, but you didn't overcome the stupid title & give us a story worth listening to.

MC Who Izzy And Kapitano - The music was the best part of this entry, but it bordered interesting & out of place a lot of the time.

Toshiro - It would be ruled a justifiable homicide if you were found beaten to death by some sort of musical instrument.

Trotsky And Marx - Too slow for my personal tastes. Just kinda depressed me.

The Yyarrell Brothers Band - Way to get me to care about the character...make him a douche driving drunk. Anyways...the music was pretty cool, and very catchy. No problem with the vocals, but the lyrics just didn't grab me. I look forward to your next entry.

Side Notes:
- The title was really stupid this time around. If you drop the last 2 words of the title it's still not great, but it's not as laughable as it currently is. Sometimes a strange title can be good, but the last 2 words just seem tacked on for no reason.

- Can we just delete the lyrics forum...or maybe just USE it?

- Overall...better fight than I expected. Well done.
