Yeah, that's pretty damn impressive.  Tolkiens work (colectively the entire history of Arda) is absolute genius.  And Peter Jackson did a pretty good job of bringing The war of the ring to life on the screen.  I can't see any movie ever being able to match the emotional content of the Lord of the Rings.  Such a story doesn't exist.

Well, if you're going to go by the Oscars: The Godfather movies, as a group, recieved 28 Oscar nominations and nine wins, including the best-picture statue and best actor twice. Most of the Oscar nominations for Rings were for technical stuff anyway. Wow.  So if the Godfather didn't win in such minor categories as best special effects or costumes big deal they won for the acting instead. Acting! who would think! No little midgets or monsters to dazzle the eye with and yet they still were nominated. But anyway it's all subjective. I'm not going to convince people who love Lord of the Rings about this and same goes for Godfather fans. We all have our own preferences in this area. At least we all agree that the Beatles were the greatest band ever!

11 Grammys as a band! Along with three for the Anthology project. That's a total of 14 Grammys! I believe that ties them with U2 for most won by a band.

Hey and weren't they just awarded something at the Grammys this year? I didn't watch but I heard they did something. Jeez after all these years and they're still winning awards! Amazing.

No, I don't think they won anything. The Grammys had a tribute to them, that's all, I think

It was a "tribute" for lack of a better word........Dave Matthews and some other guys performed a horrid, out of tune-sloppy version of "I Saw Her Standing There". Big disappointment.

I like the 80s. The 80s were hands down the best decade of my life so far, and there's some pretty great (new wave, punk rock and hardcore) music from the 80s.

The hair and clothes were horrible beyond words though.

I was never crazy about them either! I saw them in concert with Ozzy and thought my head would explode.

Heh, my ears were ringing for hours after the Metallica show that I watched.

Can't say I've ever seen anything with those girls in it.  But the amateur stuff from the era is so gross, I can't believe the people in the video were able to do it without vomitting all over each other.  I'm only 20, so too young to have seen concerts in the 80's, but they sure as hell are expensive now.  Clapton tickets were 90 dollars this time around for the good seats.  I didn't go unfortunately.

Yes, concerts are ridiculiously expensive now. But at the time  i thought 10.00 to see The Who was alot. Last thought on porn, never watch the amatures it can be sick, its kinda like watching your neighbors. You know, the ones you would not want to see naked even on a bet? Always go for the "Name" headliners and at least you will know the girls will be hotties 8)

Yes, but the big names are so expensive.  I just stay away from porn altogether these days. 

And 10 dollars to see the Who is nothing.  I'd gladly pay that.  I'd pay 90 dollars to see Clapton too if I had somone to go 4 hours to Omaha with me tomorrow.  No one wanted to go with me unfortunately.  So I won't get to see him once again.  *sigh*
