And now I can’t stop thinking about how criminally under appreciated Daniel Woodrell is as an American writer. Here is a great article from esquire for whoever might be interested. Goes into detail about his painful No Reservations episode.

wonderful writer and overlooked is right. I thought when Winters Bone was filmed he might take off and with writers like Donald Ray Pollock getting noticed it seemed Woodrells time had come

Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...
Well, I have others.

My top 1 favorite artist is Jerry Garcia, and Scorsese is slated to direct and co-produce a biopic on the Dead with the surviving members, one of Jerry's daughters, and other people who give me hope this won't be a dumpster fire attached as executive producers. Jonah Hill gets the nod as Jerry (I like him. I can't picture anyone in the role, so I don't have an opinion on that yet).

The quality of Scorsese's work has declined with his age, but he did a good documentary about the Dead fairly recently and this is his first music biopic, so I really hope he crushes it.

My hope is that most of the focus is on the formation and early days of the band in the 60s and early 70s, and that crazy cast of characters including the Merry Pranksters.
Think it, be it.

THE IRISHMAN is still my favourite movie of the bloody decade... But then I don't know when the decade started or ended as I'm old...

@Bfd70 wicked top 5! Pogues should make it on the album title alone ;)

Since we’ve had TOOL mentioned here numerous times, we should also add PRIMUS to the mix…

Difficult to say which is their best album, but for now I’ll suggest:

PRIMUS - Sailing the Seas of Cheese

Primus sucks!

(If you don't know what I'm talking about there and think I'm hating on them, I'm not).

I'd go Frizzle Fry for my favorite of theirs.
Think it, be it.

You guys are going to hate me, but…

Primus opened for U2 (ZooTV tour) back in ‘92.  I had never listened to Primus before and only listened to about 5 minutes worth at the concert before I walked out.  Haven’t listened to them since. 

I just didn’t get it, and never bothered to look them up again.

Am I missing anything?

And, agreed, Frizzle Fry is also one of my favorites

Yes, Les Claypool is arguably the greatest bass player ever! If one is  looking for heavy slap bass and hard hitting drums, with a blend of funk and thrash metal, then Primus is the answer.

To each his own.

There's no law saying you have to like Primus. Les Claypool is weird, writes weird lyrics, has a weird voice, and plays the bass weirdly, applying a modified banjo clawhammer technique to the instrument. I am quite surprised they managed to get the level of popularity they did.

Breaking Bad is probably my favorite drama of all time, in any medium, and also my favorite TV show. I might place Mr. Robot up there too.

On the sunnier side of the street, Seinfeld is in the list, as is Always Sunny.
Think it, be it.
