  1. "My Clinch Mountain Home" Far away upon a hill on a sunny mountain side Many years ago we parted, my own true love and I From the sunny mountain side Oh she clung to me and trembled, when I told her we must part And she said don't go my darling I know twill break my heart When we two are far apart Carry me back to old Virginia back to my clinch mountain home Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home My mother's old and feeble and my father's getting gray Carry me back to old Virginia for its there I want to stay Oh I held her in my arms leaned her head upon my breast And I told her that I'd wed her when I come back from the west To my old clinch mountain home In my hand I hold a picture of the old home far away And the picture of my sweetheart I'm thinking of today On the sunny mountain side
  2. Well, weep, you've sealed it: I'm never seeing Avatar.
  3. "Lady Margarget" (one name among many..."Fair Margaret and Sweet William" being the most common. Lady Margaret sitting in her high hall door Combing her long yellow hair Saw sweet William and his new-made Bride Riding from the church so near She throwed down her ivory comb Throwed back her long yellow hair Said I'll go down to bid him farewell And never more go there It was all lately in the night When they were fast asleep Lady Margaret appeared all dressed in white Standing at their bed feet How do you like your pillow said she How do you like your sheet And how do you like that fair young lady Lying in your arms asleep Very well do I like my pillow says he Very well do I like my sheet But better do I like that fair young maiden Standing at my bed feet Once he kissed her lily white hand Twice he kissed her cheek Three times he kissed her cold corpse-y lips And fell in her arms asleep Is Lady Magraret in her room? Or is she in the hall? No, Lady Margaret's in her cold black coffin With her pale face to the wall
  4. I became a Habs fan because of my paternal grandmother; she's a first generation immigrant to the States via Québec. She doesn't follow sports much, but when I was flipping through a commemorative book about the Stanley Cup once she pointed to a picture of Maurice Richard and started telling me all about him. That was the trigger, but it took a few years for my devotion to blossom. I was young at the time and my mother and maternal grandfather were/are Bruins fans so I was heavily under their influence. To stay on topic: I'll be sure to mention in here whenever I watch a movie.
  5. Yep. I think it has to do with being brought up by my grandparents...one set of which are/were big movie buffs.
  6. You're top 3 are in my top 10! Excellent choices!
  7. "The Four Marys" (aka The Queen's Marys, Mary Hamilton, and others) Last night there were four Marys Tonight there'll be but three There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton And Mary Carmichael and me. Oh, often have I dressed my queen And put on her braw silk gown But all the thanks I've got tonight Is to be hanged in Edinborough Town Fill often have I dressed my queen Put gold upon her hair But I have got for my reward The gallows to be my share. Oh little did my mother know The day she cradled me The land I was to travel in The death I was to dee. Oh, happy, happy is the maid That's born of beauty free Oh, it was my rosy dimpled cheeks That's been the devil to me. They'll tie a kerchief around my eyes That I may not see to dee And they'll never tell my father or mother But that I'm across the sea. ---- "By the Rising of the Moon" And come tell me Sean O'Farrell tell me why you hurry so Husha buachaill hush and listen and his cheeks were all a glow I bare orders from the captain get you ready quick and soon For the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon For the pikes must be together by the rising of the moon And come tell me Sean O'Farrell where the gath'rin is to be At the old spot by the river quite well known to you and me One more word for signal token whistle out the marchin' tune With your pike upon your shoulder by the rising of the moon By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon With your pike upon your shoulder by the rising of the moon Out from many a mud wall cabin eyes were watching through the night Many a manly heart was beating for the blessed warning light Murmurs rang along the valleys to the banshees lonely croon And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon By the rising of the moon, by the rising of the moon And a thousand pikes were flashing by the rising of the moon All along that singing river that black mass of men was seen High above their shining weapons flew their own beloved green Death to every foe and traitor! Whistle out the marching tune And hurrah, me boys, for freedom, 'tis the rising of the moon 'Tis the rising of the moon, 'tis the rising of the moon And hurrah, me boys, for freedom, 'tis the rising of the moon ------------- "Barbara Allen" (Barbry Ellen, etc) In Scarlet town where I was born There was a fair maid dwelling And every youth cried well away For her name was Barbara Allen Twas in the merry month of May The green buds were a swelling Sweet William on his deathbed lay For the love of Barbara Allen He sent a servant unto her To the place she was dwelling Saying you must come to his deathbed now If your name be Barbara Allen Slowly slowly she got up Slowly slowly she came nigh him And the only words to him she said Young man I think you're dying As she was walking oer the fields She heard the death bell knelling And every stroke it seemed to say Hardhearted Barbara Allen Oh mother mother make my bed Make it long and make it narrow Sweet William died for me today I'll die for him tomorrow They buried her in the old churchyard They buried him in the choir And from his grave grew a red red rose From her grave a green briar They grew and grew to the steeple top Till they could grow no higher And there they twined in a true love's knot Red rose around green briar ---- "What Wondrous Love is This?" What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul! What wondrous love is this, O my soul! What wondrous love is this That caused the Lord of bliss To bear the cruel cross for my soul, for my soul, To bear the cruel cross for my soul! When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down, When I was sinking down, sinking down, When I was sinking down Beneath God’s righteous frown, ***** laid aside His crown for my soul for my soul, ***** laid aside His crown for my soul. To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing; To God and to the Lamb I will sing; To God and to the Lamb, Who is the great I AM, While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing, While millions join the theme, I will sing. And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on; And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on. And when from death I’m free I’ll sing His love for me, And through eternity I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on, And through eternity I’ll sing on.
  8. Country (1984, with Sam Shepard and Jessica Lange) - 5.5/10
  9. Scenes From a Marriage (Television Edition): 9.5/10
  10. Figured it had to happen sooner or later. Would be nice for Selanne to reach 600 goals, which seems likely at this point.
  11. Doing something we needed desperately: scoring goals.
  12. It'll be nice to have him back in the line-up. Hopefully we'll be able to pull out a regulation win against a worn-down NYI team.
