My favorite is 1969 Live. At times they sound like a garage band, but I always imagined that that effect represented them better than a studio sound.

The "1969 Live" double album was also one of Sterling Morrison's favourites, where they sounded garage, specially in "What goes on?", "Rock and Roll" and "Beginning to see the light". One song which improved a lot live was "Lisa says", since in the official version was sung by Doug Yule. Except "Loaded" (1970), all The Velvet records are equally amazing for me, being "White Light/White Heat" the edgiest of them.

On a related note, anybody seen Reed live lately? Caught him a few years back, and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Really.

Feel free to disregard my advice on this one:

You need every studio VU album, plus the aforementioned 1969 Live. If you want to know where to start, go in chronological order. Every album is extremely musically rewarding and each one (though particularly the first two) is extremely important to the history of modern music. Start at the beginning (The Velvet Underground and Nico) and work chronologically from there. Don't rush. It's worth it.


*Edit*: Just thought I should mention this is coming from somebody who grew up (is growing up) around the corner from St. Marks Place and 6 blocks from Union Square.

The live "Rock and Roll" on that album is one of my favorites.

Ditto. Along with "What Goes On." Cracker, you definitely have good taste.

My favorite superhero movies are ones that aren't based on comics and aren't what you exactly think of as a superhero movie, like Donnie Darko and Unbreakable and of course the Incredibles which doesn't fit the second qualification totally but I love it.

For fans of "Donnie Darko" and "Brick" (and Mark Twain): "Fantasy and Noir".

great article... i liked the "perverse smile" bit... funny, yet creepy... kinda like DONNIE MADISON


'A storm is coming,'
Frank says,
'A storm that will swallow the children.'
And I will deliver them from the kingdom of pain.
I will deliver the children back to
their doorsteps.
Send the monsters back to the underground.
I'll send them back to a place where
no one else can see them.
Except for me.
Because I am Donnie Darko.


i love this scene... it reminds me of Holden's dream in CATCHER IN THE RYE.

Funny and lighthearted clip that "Donnie Madison". The continuation of "Fantasy and Noir" post: "Heroes' Sweethearts"

For such a pessimistic genre of film, film noir seems to elicit many creative premises. As a genre that depicts the worst in human beings, it brings out the best in writers and directors-an interesting irony.

Dancyger & Rush put it quite nicely in their book "Alternative Scriptwriting", Although otherwise, I have read some better books than that and, to be fair, worse ones too.
