Hmmm. looks like Mick was strumming a star-burst accoustic Gibson with the adjustable bridge...which happens to be the model I proudly own (but rarely play any longer).

The film is really terrific - I love how the song develops.

oh Brian Jones...it's about to get very, very dark for you...

And those very Stones (minus Jones) just announced their Japan dates. Feb & March, Tokyo Dome (alas). I will be there, if I'm alive. Booh-ya!

That's some great stuff, love to see a relatively unedited cut of it ...

[3] Say it ain't so, Boat! Paying $100 and up to see the Stones now is like going to Starbucks..

[5] Apparently, you don't like great coffee or great rock 'n' roll, but I won't hold it against you.

[6] Saying Starf$cks has great coffee is like saying The Great Wall Panda on E.15th st in Brooklyn has great Chinese food...

..and tix start at ¥18,000! Does Mick need a new yacht??

Dude. You are blowing smoke out your ass.

1. No question, Starbucks serves great coffee. There are certainly better boutique joints, if you have the time and money. (I know a couple in Ginza). But for an easy to find, SMOKE FREE!!!!, venue to enjoy coffee (or purchase beans), Starbucks wins hands down. I know you hate anything corporate, but there's no denying quality.

2.I might even splurge for a Golden Seat at 80,000 yen, and I've seen them 5 times. They are still very much worth it, my friend.

[7] "...new yacht??" WTF?

Wait, don't tell me you are even mildly suggesting that these guys are doing it for anything other than the love of the music and the love of performing at this point.

The traveling circus doesn't run on goodwill.

Moreover, why shouldn't they make as much as the market allows? If you start laying some art is suffering shit on me, I will vomit...in your hat. Unless you are promoting Frida Kahlo these days.

Wow, MrOK and Boatzilla, that was awesome!
Do it again!

That shit is cool. I recently picked up the guitar again and started a band with friends. I figured, why not. Just cause i'm in my 40s? Anyhow, i've grown this new found love for watching bands create their goods. Watched a documentary on the dead kennedys making an album a couple of months back and was just fascinated. Of course I went on to do my best Jello Biafra impersonation on one of our songs (it actually fit well) right after that. Love this goodness. And Godard eh? nice.

all I'll say is this...

last May, my college roommate and I stumbled into $80 tickets to see them in Toronto. We drove up the morning of the show and came back the next day. It was completely worth it.

Would I do it again? Not at all. But I have no regrets whatsoever.
