We need the classic MC posts archived for eternity here, especially his "All the girls I've f...d before" series.
Here's the story of when Marc and Mrs Campbell met:
And this also helps sum up the MC we all knew and loved:
Just found the legendary Marc Campbell thread:
"Don't leave, come home with me" I said. "Why" she replied. My answer was simple and direct:
"Because I will eat your pussy like it's never been eaten before". Her response was succint:
Thirty years ago, I found that pickup line to be almost as effective as " I can sing just like Ian Anderson".
I think I would have enjoyed MC.
Wasn't he here on the new forum for a short while? I miss his stories.
On the one hand, if you take his writing seriously, it sounds as if Henry Miller one day just said "fuck it, I give up". On the other hand, it is funny. MC always seems like one of those people you'd really regret not meeting. I think he still writes on the NYTimes film page sometimes as hippymc.
IMO this is the best thread he ever started: http://www.feeverte.net/archive/messages/16/469.html
It is the best thread because it just seems like a bunch of absinthe drinkers having a genuine conversation.
That was back when I was in lurk mode, but that was one of the threads that motivated me to join, as it was clear many people on here were really PASSIONATE about their film and music. I find myself really wanting to add posts to that dead thread more than any other live thread here these days.
A real gem in there is when Artemis said Goonies was better than Citizen Kane.
So in the spirit of MC, here's my 10 movies you should see this year:
1. LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
2. THE DEPARTED
3. SCIENCE OF SLEEP
4. THE PRESTIGE
5. THE PROPOSITION
6. WHEN THE LEVEE BROKE
7. LITTLE CHILDREN
9. THE FOUNTAIN
10. RUNNING WITH SCISSORS
And while MC said ALMOST FAMOUS was the greatest rock & roll movie ever made, while he was right then, SCHOOL OF ROCK has since then earned that title in my book.
And since I'm adding to dead conversation,
Wow, I didn't even remember I had that other name.
I was registered under my real name on the old fourm. A practice I have since stopped.
There is?! No, I never had more than one name at a time.
Yes, a masterpiece. The Rolf Harris reference cracks me up every time.
Oxy, are you just pouring over this old stuff manually?, I wonder if there is some sort of software tool that could download the whole mess and transfer it a searchable database? I tried to find my first posts with no luck.
Have you tried searching in Google, including the following term along with your key words?
