Caution: Thoughts may appear larger than actual size …
UPDATE: A new and vastly improved version is now available at Groupthink.
Hee – hee! Is that Nick Minchin on the left?
… and Bananaby to the right.
And who’s that at the back next to Tony Abbott?
Why, it’s Ross! He pretended to be a black guy in The Wire once too often…
My own effort is a little limp in comparison, cNm.
Rawls: Do you even know what this detail’s about Lieutenant?
Daniels: Some kinda beef that Valchek has.
Rawls: Two fuckin’ [Jackson] Polacks pissin’ on each other’s leg.
Oh for fuck’s sake!
cNm – Why. why, WHY won’t they let my people go?!
McNulty: I’m late for soccer practice.
Bubbles: Suck what?
Landsman: For you I would suggest some pantsuits, perhaps muted in color, something to offset Detective Moreland’s pinstripe lawyerly affectations and the brash tweedy impertinence of Detective Freamon. Rawls is watching on this one, let’s at least pretend like we got a fucking clue.
Lester: Tweedy impertinence? I like that.
Snoop: Yeah, man. Man say if you wanna shoot nails, this here the Cadillac, man. Meant Lexus but he ain’t know it.
This line was delivered after Snoop bought a nail gun for some murderin’, but damn if I didn’t miss the “Meant Lexus” remark. The scene immediately preceding that comment was for me as sweet as the previously discussed McNulty/Bunk fuck scene. “Meant Lexus…” shit, that’s just so sweet. I can understand why you went straight back and watched it again … I’ll be doing the same I suspect with my illegally downloaded Tremes.
Meantime, I think I’ll have to turn on the subtitles for The Wire.
Yes, I watched it all with subtitles on. That way I didn’t have to strain to get into the rhythm of the dialect. After I finished watching all 5 seasons, I felt that I’d just lost a whole bunch of friends. I couldn’t watch anything else – The Wire does spoil a person.
I picked up Snoop’s autobiography from Amazon a while back, haven’t read it yet, it’s on the pile. And there’s an episode guide available that has a whole bunch of articles and interviews in it. It’s available locally, “The Wire – Truth Be Told”.
I also bought the soundtrack – great music there, highly recommended.
I can’t wait till “Treme” comes out. If I had a computer at home, I’d definitely be ripping it.
zip me a postal address to colournomovement[at]gmail[dot]com and I’ll fling you a disc if you like. just make sure you got a modernish dvd player that can play all those wacky formats.
I’m saving up Treme until I have a few more eps. Can’t wait.
Have you watched Generation Kill, cNm? That’s excellent, too.
Generation Kill? Begone vile temptress!
I was enthused when I learnt how to reliably illegally download in the more dignified from-share-sites method rather than those ugly torrents and as a consequence exceeded my limit and had my speed throttled for the first time in ages recently. As I regularly need to transmit huuuuuge files quickly and there was a couple days there where I was packin’ it, terrified I’d be shamed and left looking terribly unprofessional.
I survived that scare, but have been very discriminating since about what I acquire.
So, no haven’t seen GK , but it is on my list. With your endorsement it just might take priority — should I get in trouble with download limits though, I’ll be suing you.
Your Treme hoarding notion is a tops idea — a cold, wet, grimy weekend locked out of casa stace as you blob out in a comfy warm seating apparatus and drink in hour after hour of Treme.
Don’t you have to sign up for those share sites? Then don’t “they” know who you are?
Who’s your trusted site?
I loved Gen Kill. It’s got Ziggy from the Wire in it, and Eric the Vampire from TRue Blood – which is also a lot of fun if you haven’t already seen it.
“They” already know who you are. They know everything about you. They’re the ones who put that implant in the back of your neck.
I’m no expert in the art, but cNm endorses filestube.com.
It’s just a search engine for share sites files. Follow the results to the site and the files. They all have their idiosyncrasies and limitations — they make you sit through a countdown (one or two minutes) before you can start the download, files are often broken up in to several parts which can only be downloaded one at a time and have to be decompressed and recompiled when complete. Sometimes they make you wait 10 or 20 minutes between downloading parts, descriptions aren’t always very descriptive (I’ve got an excellent quality dvd rip of I Love You Phillip Morris, in Russian) and some of the sites look a little creepy, but the worst I’ve experienced is pop-up windows inviting me to play poker.
That’s doing it with a “free account” — you don’t have to sign-up for anything. I too had thought you had to sign up for ’em, but you needn’t. If you do “sign-up” and pay a fee you get maximum speed, no limitations etc.
I can recommend clicking on the “source” link before committing to a particular download. This’ll take you to the (typically) blog of the snot faced pimply East European or Scandinavian who has posted the file and you can better assess what you might be getting.
Jesus, I’ve made it sound like a nightmare, but once you get into the swing it’s kinda cool. It’s also the only reliable method I’m aware of to get yourself obscure product — I’ve suffered great heartache at the hands of torrents which taunt you with promises but fail to deliver.
For ep. 6, on mon. night or tues. morning search for “treme notv” and look for a 550Mb file. This is my fave, it comes down in one part and is excellent quality. Our downloads may pass each other in the night.
Also, I would like to add that’s it’s positive testament to The John Howard Institute that we share and disseminate such info that is so dear to our hearts and precious to our conservative values.
A nightmare? I’m freaking out here, cNm, piling up the armoires against the door, and reaching for the tin foil!!!
I’ll check things out this week and get back ta yer, if “they” don’t get to me first.
Armoires? Tin foil?
Only Super stace!!! could bring those two together and make it work;
You go, girl!
Oh la la. That’s how I did my hamstring last time. Showing off my slow-mo karate kick.
