Murder on the Orient Express Question #6 the Era?

I think it could be altered and could play in a time between 1930s and 1990s. Simply because everybody nowadays has a smartphone and internet access and this wouldn't be good for the story. I especially liked the absence of telephone and cellphones. Poirot could google the suspects and that's it. Ho...

Happy birthday to ONBC!

14 years?! Congrats and Depphugs from me. :bouquet: I don't participate very much, but I often read the comments and I especially enjoy the tidbits. I learnt a lot from them. Hubby sometimes just rolls his eyes when I tell him, I'm reading a book recommended by the Noodlemantras at the JD Zone. :lol...

Johnny in Marilyn Manson's video "Say10"

Loved the video and the song. I like Marilyns music and what he does.

I had to think about Johnnys first role in Nightmare on Elm Street, where Freddie was trying to get through the wall. Just like Manson did behind the bed with the plastic foil. Nice.

Pic--Universal's Dark Universe group shot (Johnny as The Invisible Man)

Have to agree with you. He's a being on a whole other level now from the guy who was in Benny and Joon, no doubt about it. It's like he's only become more knowledgeably infinite... Saw him in Gilbert Grape the other day and was shocked about how young he looked then. And he's such a good looking ma...

The Mountain Shadow Question #22--Compare Both Books

I have the impression the undertone of The Mountain Shadow is darker and more violent than Shantaram. Don't know why. Maybe because in Shantaram there was Prabu, who seemed to be happy most of the time. It was more lighthearted. All this gang violence in TMS really was annoying to me. I always thoug...

The Mountain Shadow Tidbit #1 - The Buddhist Caves

Wow! It's very different from what I imagined it to be. It's always interesting to see what people are able to do, in a good and bad way that is.
Glad, tidbits finally started.

Re: ONBC's Summer/Fall/Spring Read: The Mountain Shadow

Just bought the book like a week ago. I had in mind there's a discussion on ONBC going on already. Silly me. I hope I've read it by the time discussion starts. I only managed to read 230 pages so far. Chapter 22 is next. I don't like what happened until now and I miss Prabu.

Re: David Bowie's Top 100 Favorite Books

I remember reading On the road by Kerouac when I was 12. Just because I read he's one of Bowie's favourite writers. Didn't like it then, but re-read it a few years ago and love it now. I also read "Das Schwert und die Puppe" by Laurens van der Post. Don't know the English title, but the mo...

Re: The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum Question #1 - Where were you in the 70s?

I was born in 1970 in West Germany in a town near Cologne/Köln. I don't have much memories about politics or other things they mention on TV nowadays. I remember wide jeans with flowers stitched on them like Marija mentioned earlier and home-made cardigans or knitted skirts. I had a happy childhood ...

Re: The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum Tidbit #10 - The Music and Club Scene

I remember it too shaman-art. It was the time of Glasnost and Soldarnosz (?). Things started to open up again in the east. And this time hope was not walzed down by tanks like at the revolt on 17 June 1953 in Berlin and later in 1968 in Prague.

and thank you for so many great books I hadn't discovered and read if you wouldn't have discussed them here. I'd never known about Fatty Arbuckle and he's sooo funny. :thankyou:

Re: Life Question #25 - Favorite Songs

I can't pick three songs. There are too many I love. I never had a favorite song. It depends on the mood I'm in and it has to fit in. But I prefer the old songs from the 60ies and I love Keiths voice. But every time I hear the song "Slipping away" sung by Keith it brings back the memory of...

Re: Life Question #22 ~ Friendship

I totally agree with him. I also have some very close friends whom I see frequently. And both parts know what the other means or thinks and also knows they can rely on each other. Whatever happens we'd be there for each other. I have a schoolfriend I know for 30 years now and we only meet/talk like ...

Re: Life Question #14 - Did the Stones turn us on to our own music?

I'm not from America either Gilbert's girl, but I think I know what he means. They did it for me too. After listening to their music I wanted to know more about them, read a book about them and then started listening to Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Howlin' Wolf, Alexis Korner, Ma Rainey, Billie Holida...

Re: Life Question #1 ~ Impressions

I really enjoyed reading the book. I'm a huge admirer of Keith and even have his face tattooed on my left arm. Reading brought back memories of the only concert I went to in 1994 (or was it 1995?) in Cologne. First row and I felt he looked at me when he sang Slipping away and certainly there was a c...
