      Thought I'd move this discussion over here cuz it's fun.

      It's been a lot of years since I watched the movie though. It had a very profound impact at the time. Some movies just hit ya that way, ya know? I'm told A Clockwork Orange is one of those kinds of movies (if it helps to make an analogy of things you just can't unsee or forget).
      I like movies that kinda hit ya. They make a deep impression and if they're well-made besides the offensive scenes, they can be excellent movies: Taken, Silence of the Lambs, Full Metal Jacket, Braveheart, A Clockwork Orange, Saw, The Martian, and many that are far more provocative and gruesome. Its art. The best-known works of art in many genres are provocative by nature. That's why people pay money to buy/see them. In cinema, its LOTS of money. Ask your neighbors.

      If you haven't seen A Clockwork Orange, you might think about it. There are many offensive scenes, so be prepared to cover your eyes. Its a Kubrick movie, after all.

        A Clockwork Orange sound track, one of our favourites. The original cassette melted on the dash so I pulled the tape out and placed it in another cassette case only to eventually replace it with a CD.
        It's interesting how, when listening you expect the next song to come along and it's different than the one in your head. The CD has the songs placed in a different order.

          Oh, I know! I've found that my MP3 player doesn't play in the same order as the CD I ripped the songs from if the name of the file doesn't include the track # at the beginning (this assumes I've put each CD/album in a separate folder). And it's so crazy to be expecting a particular song and something else plays. I have this problem when I play some of the old Bruce Springsteen albums I used to wear out on the crappy old cassette player in my first car. Pretty sure I covered every road in the state of NJ while listening to Bruce. Or at least it felt like it.

                At The Petersen now. My favorite museum.

                Went to an all Ladies Car Meet this morning. So much fun! In the immortal words of Randy Newman: I love LA!

                              Two of those aren't for the S2000. They are for my daily. My daily desperately needs the engine compartment cleaned. It's pretty filthy. On contrast, my S engine compartment is quite clean.

                                Installed a new alternator in the S2000 last week. Nice to no longer have a flickering dashboard. And it's good to know the new battery is getting properly charged up.

                                Next project: lip, splitter, front plate.
