Repeated with increasing intensity 16 times into a furious crescendo.

The irony of the SGn 'machine' censoring that song was maybe not lost on them. As I recall at the time, the entire album was simply banned.


Tell me about it!They wouldn't let me have that as my screen name in here.
Everytime I typed Rage it would turn to Raj

Since we're on the topic of movies, how's Hans and Gret?

Hansel and Gretel suck - both of them. I didn't like it, Famke Janssen or not...

Someone on a music forum took major offence to the movie as she was into wicca for the last 26 years and thought the movie portrayed her kind in a bad way.

She should be offended by Disney, the brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen...

Speaking of which, I prefer the take on fairy tale characters on this one instead: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fables_%28comics%29

:cool:

I counted 11 poorly done splices and / or profanity overdubs. As if a movie like that is so profane or offensive.

Was ok but missable. Dopey ending, seems like they ran out of ideas at the end, went from the middle of the storyline to the ending.

I watched Good Day to Die Hard yesterday in Houston. Surprisingly, there was only one "mortar forker" in the the entire movie and not one "yippee kai yay" in it anywhere.

I had heard he was going to say, "yippe kai yay, mother Russia" but that never showed up, either.

Interesting, if unbelievable action, but not much of a plot... about as complex as a wooden stick.

I spent a day in Houston once, en route to Nicaragua.

Friendly people, good nosh (rib-heaven!), and some fine galleries/museums.

But hot, damned hot. :shock:

In the censored version I watched, we did get the "yippee kai yay" then the poorly edited-in swear-word replacement, 'cheesehead' , or whatever it was.
