Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
La la la la la.

Last week's Simpsons actually had a joke that made me laugh for once.

Bart learned to be a drummer and was damn good at it. Then he injured his arm, and Dr Hibbert told him he couldn't drum anymore. Bart's reply:
"I started out as a great drummer, and now I'm nothing! Just like Phil Collins!"

The Worst Last Roles of Otherwise Great Actors

No Peter Sellers/The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu?
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

Richard Harris was English?

(Also, several of these "last roles" seem to be penultimate — or even further from ultimate than that ...)

The Richard Harris thing was ridiculous. His grandkids wanted him as Dumbledore. And no, he was of course not British. Tell that to my friends in Limerick. Hell, even Russell Crowe came to Limerick to drink when Harris died.

Better known as: First half of career—Best Actor of His Generation. Second half of his career—Batshit Crazy Fat Ass.
Last role: Don Vito Corleone in The Godfather Video Game
Normally, a video game acting gig wouldn't count, but the fact that Brando trotted out his—at that point—tired Don Corleone act for a half-assed Grand Theft Auto cash-in was pathetic. Now if the game had the option to unlock the Muu-Muu wearing Island of Dr. Moreau Brando as a playable character, it might be a different story.
That's a game I would play. That movie sucked so much ass people who were in it refuse to acknowledge it exists.

Well, Russell Crowe heard it was half-off-on-shots night at my local and he made it.

OK, missed that part. I guess it's one of those times where the review outshines the product.
