November 29[edit]

Internet sites for following English Championship League (Newcastle)?[edit]

Tired of the lack of footie in my life, I've decided to adopt a team from England, and as my best mate here hails from there, I've decided to go with Newcastle. However, I haven't the slightest idea where to look on the internet for good coverage and especially discussion. isn't bad for a fansite, but I was hoping for something more interactive (not just news postings). I've got the regular BBC and Yahoo Sports Championship League pages, but they're also devoid of real fan-to-fan interaction. Can a veteran of English Football throw me some useful sites please? I'd be very grateful. (note - I'm in China, so it's not like I can just ask my neighbor...) (talk) 00:33, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

I found this which seems to be more of a fan site and does have forums. Also try googling St.James'Park (name of the ground)and the Magpies(nickname)...hotclaws 01:03, 29 November 2009 (UTC) is a great website for thoughts etc. is generally a very popular site though unfortunately is tarnished by a lot of annoying idiots - definitely worth looking on there though. (talk) 10:15, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

By pure chance,I found this today.It's the local newspaper on line which is always a useful source of team information. 01:52, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

OP here. Thanks for everything, and for tossing up that newest link, Hotclaws. I am still watching this post! :-) (talk) 05:32, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

EL clasico timing[edit]

What time is todays barcelona vs real madrid match in Pakistan time? Thank you.-- (talk) 07:20, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

What is this movie?[edit]

I asked this once before but never got an answer and I'm going to give it a second shot. I saw a review of a movie within the past three years that I wanted to see but I don't remember the name. I believe it was Ebert and Roeper or during the time when that show was being hosted by Roeper with guests while Ebert was convalescing. It was a mainsteam release in theaters, though probably not a huge release. It was described as a series of I think ten vignettes but certainly a bunch of different ones, all by different writers, actors and directors I think, described as rather racy and I remember them describing one as very racy. The reviewers said some were very funny. I know that isn't a huge amount to go on but it was released in theaters and I can't imagine there are many movies like this. I have a half-assed recollection that a numeral was in the title (maybe ten because of ten skits) but this could be wrong. Hoping someone says "of course it has to be ___". Thanks in advance.-- (talk) 15:59, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Sounds a little bit like 9 Songs, it has nine vignettes and "racy" is not the word :) However the nine sections are all by the same director so probably not. --Richardrj talk email 17:01, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Coffee and Cigarettes? Same director and not racy, but it's 11 vignettes. Tempshill (talk) 17:28, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
I saw Coffee and Cigarettes (there are no Jarmusch films I haven't seen) and the movie I'm after was definitely last two or three years. It can't be 9 songs because (at least according to the article) it's not a comedy. Damn. I'll keep watching but maybe it's time to give up if this doesn't pan out. Thanks for trying!-- (talk) 17:36, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Maybe Eros (film)? Only 3 parts, but all by different directors, and I think racy. Staecker (talk) 17:43, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
That seems like a good guess. Sticking with the number clue, while scanning Category:Anthology films, I found these somewhat recent films by multiple directors with numbers in the title: 18-J, 11'09"01 September 11, Three (film), and Three... Extremes. —Kevin Myers 17:46, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Four Rooms? Although that is only 4 and is from I suppose not. Adam Bishop (talk) 18:20, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Everyone thanks for trying. Maybe it is 9 Songs and my memory that it was a comedy was confabulated. I think I'm just going to let it go. I am a movie nut and once I get it into my head that I want to see something (or am trying to remember some line from a movie etc.) and cannot remember what it was it just gnaws at the fringes of my mind. By the way, I saw The Road (film) earlier today. Good flick. The kid who plays in it is really incredible. Rarely have I seen a performance by a child that young, that good.-- (talk) 05:37, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Paris, je t'aime? —D. Monack talk 09:14, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

You may be thinking of The Ten which fits most of your criteria: it is a comedy, consists of ten vignettes featuring different actors, has the word "ten" in its title, and contains racy material. But the entire film is written and directed by the same people. The Hero of This Nation (talk) 19:05, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

That's it! Thank you! Hmmm, I actually was firing on pretty much all cyclinders, as to title, genre and year, just got the all different directors part wrong. Rottentomatoes has it at 38% but going to netflixlistify now.-- (talk) 23:19, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

"Abbey Road" or "Let It Be."[edit]

Okay, I'm a huge Beatles fan, but I still can't figure this out! Was "Let It Be" the last album that The Beatles released, or is it "Abbey Road"? I know "Abbey Road" was released in 1969, and "Let It Be" 1970, but would "Abbey Road" be considered the last record because "Let It Be" was a SOUNDTRACK? I'm confused. Thanks.

Production on Let It Be took considerable time. Let It Be was the last album released, but Abbey Road was the last one recorded. Thus many people consider Abbey Road the Beatles' swansong. Grutness...wha? 22:32, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
(ec) Abbey Road was recorded after Let It Be, but released before. Abbey Road was most definitely the "final album" artistically speaking. Staecker (talk) 22:34, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
The band essentially broke up during the making of Let It Be and the project was never finished by them. The Beatles decided to reunite for one final album, Abbey Road. Phil Spector was then brought on to finish the Let It Be album. Paul McCartney hated Spector's changes which eventually led to the Let It Be Naked album. A Quest For Knowledge (talk) 23:33, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Hard telling what to make of McCartney's version of the song "Let It Be", which in the new rendition sounds a lot like his early softer numbers as a solo act, such as "My Love". "Let It Be" was the last album released - twice, yet. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 23:54, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Best comment I heard about the production on "Let it be" was from George Martin. Since he'd done the initial work on the recordings before Spector took over, he wanted a credit on the album. When his suggestion of "co-produced by George Martin and Phil Spector" was refused, he said (I'm paraphrasing):"How about 'produced by Martin, overproduced by Spector'"? Grutness...wha? 23:35, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Oh cool! So technically then, LET IT BE was the last album then? right???? hahaha. I think that's all it goes. Thanks everyone! 02:25, 30 November 2009 (UTC)Moptopstyle1

The simplest answer is that Let it Be was the last album released. Abbey Road was the last album recorded. A Quest For Knowledge (talk) 03:17, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
"Last album" is ambiguous in this case. But the OP's comment above, assuming he's read all the other details, suggests he was looking for "last album released". Perhaps he could clarify that point for us? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 03:20, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
