  • Re: B&O at the Movies (or TV shows ...)

    I recently watched the 2nd season of a Shotime series called "The Hunger" that had David Bowie as the host introducing each episode. One of them, can't recall which episode now unfortunately, had B&O 1400 series phones in it.

  • Re: What are you WATCHING "right now' ?

    I understand, the stories are all very well made in a a wide variety of animation styles, but the individual stories are uneven in writing. I enjoyed all of them, some more than others. This is kind of typical of anthology type things, whether done all at once or assembled from individual films. I have a copy of the "Animatrix" on DVD, a good assembly of films on one theme, but there too they are uneven. Several of the Love, Death, Plus Robots films could have been much longer, especially

    Glad my recommendation led you to it! I agree completely about Netflix, I've tried to watch a few of the shows you mention and bailed out because of the reasons you mention, never finishing them. In general, Netflix movies are worse than Netflix series, though I'll make an exception to that for "Altered Carbon." I generally thought it was OK, and would have thought better of it if I'd never read the book(s). But while they got the visuals of the city right, and I think they

    Are they 45's or 45-2's?

    I'll be interested in what you think, especially about "Beyond The Aquila Rift." It, and one called "Zima Blue." In reading about the series I discovered both are by the same author, Alastair Reynolds. Both very thought provoking to me, and I just bought the book of short stories these are included in. I found the "Beyond The Aquila Rift" interesting, it explains more about the tech involved, and the ending is even more unsettling.

    I think you'll like "Zima Blue" as well, thought provoking in a different way. I found all of the shorts to be worthwhile, some I think are better than others but overall a very high standard for them all. Is kind of similar to Black Mirror, not for the people who need a simple story or a happy ending. I liked the looped story as well. I thought the character at the apartment party she went to, with the horns and latex and such, was freaky and more than a little scary. So many possibilities

    Been a long time since I've seen that, might be past time to look it up again. The difference in decor is always fascinating in movies of this era.

    I stumbled on a really great anthology series on Netflix, "Love, Death, + Robots." 18 different animated shorts covering a wide variety of stories, from funny to horrific. One is called "When The Yogurt Took Over" which is about an intelligent strain of yogurt that took over the earth, quite amusing. Another one actually got me to buy the book of short stories it's in, "Beyond The Aquila RIft." In it Earth ships use this huge collection of abandoned alien devices

    Looks interesting, what brands other than B&O does it cover? I'm reading Haruki Murakami's "Kafka On The Shore" right now, very well written and odd book, as was his book "The Wind Up Bird Chronicle."

    Interesting, I'm familiar with a lot of those companies but there are some I'm definitely going to have to web search on to learn about. I'd forgotten, or never knew, Audiovector was Danish.
