    Not seen Appaloosa and don’t intend to, HOWEVER, you said Ed Harris
    is no Clint Eastwood. You’re right. Ed Harris is about ten times a better actor then Clint and I really like Clint’s movies…. in front
    of or behind the camera.

    Here’s a movie you’ll enjoy… I think.
    UNDERTAKING BETTY…. 2004 Alfred Molina, Brenda Blethyn, Naomi Watts and Christopher Walken. Give it a try.

    you are 100% correct about Sirius XM. I really do not like the format on most stations now.

    I’m constantly googling pieces from PRI & NPR Now to see if they’re current or from effing 1997. What a rip.

    But, on the other hand, if I have to listen to 106.whatever FM for longer than a 5 minute span I’m spazzing from the non-stop and usually highly irritating commercials.

    On yet another hand, I do appreciate hearing full versions of songs with no radio edits.

  4. XM Sirius has screwed up in several ways, I think. Fussing with the programming was a major snafu, no doubt. Rate increases aren’t helping, either. But we finally got rid of it when we were told we could no longer listen online with our regular subscription & we’d have to pay extra to do so.

    Not really a good time to be telling yr customers to pay more for stuff they can live without.

    Still a fan of my XM radio, for two reasons: 1) I’m not a weather snob 😉 and 2) Sports, sports and more sports. I get baseball, hockey and college basketball. Plus tons of sports talk.

    And on Appaloosa… you are very, very wrong. If you haven’t seen it, see it. I bet you agree with the majority of people who liked it. My wife loved it and she’s not a fan of westerns in general. It’s great.

    I don’t have XM or Sirius so I can’t comment on either.

    Haven’t seen Appaloosa but I did see trailers for it and pretty much determined it would have been a fitting lining for an actual horse trailer.

    […] (I should point out here… I’d just watched the first act of Appaloosa…which sucked so bad, I would’ve been happy watching reality TV instead) […]
