In case you were't aware, Ron Young, from Little Caesar appeared in T2 Judgement Day as the dude who smashed the pool queue over Arnie.
He's a great guy to talk to on Facebook, sometimes giving some insights into Little Caesar and otehr things.

Anyway, he posted a pic of him in T2 and the post 
"It was such a blast. The best part was the way I got the part was I was friends with Jim Cameron. He was bored on set and wanted a friend there as he was hated by the crew for being a task master. He would take me into the editing trailer and play me all the outtakes. He would scream at the screen “learn your fucking lines!” “Learn how to act!!” The reason Arnold had so many iconic one liners was to cut down on his dialogue as the less you gave him. The quicker the shoot went. They hired folks just to write them. Hasta La Vista baby, I’ll be back, your clothes, your shoes etc etc. Even those took many takes. It was a lot of fun and we were rolling on the floor laughing. Jim would be crying and say “play that again....that was so fucking bad, but so ducking funny”. He had a whole reel made that he would play at his parties."

Then went on to talk about how Arnie couldn't deal with all the takes with the pool queue etc.
Funny stuff.

I did know Young was in T2 but super cool story nonetheless. Big fan of Young. Saw him live fronting the Four Horsemen replacing Frank Starr after his tragic accident. Hope to see him in Little Caesar one day.

Probably common knowledge among visitors here but I'll mention it anyway; Danny Cooksey the lead singer for Bad4Good was the red headed kid on the back of young John Connor's dirt bike with the blaster cranking GNR. Great movie!!!

I'd just discovered Little Caeser when T2 came out and recognized him straight away. The credits confirmed it and I got a kick out of it.

Here's one you might not be aware of. The 1984 sex comedy "Hardbodies" was regularly rented by me from my local video store back in my early teen "titty movie self isolation" days. It was only recently that I discovered  "Vixen" were the all girl band who featured prominently.  They had more of a pop/rock vibe.

    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
    • Live performance  Honestly, I didn't care for this much upon first listen, but with each play I find it ear worming it's way into my skull...  Troy announced he was taking time off from touring last year, so I'm assuming that's still Steve Brown (Wild Mick Brown's brother)  on drums... Drummer Troy Luccketta to take time off the road and to be replaced by Steve Brown at Tesla shows - Sleaze Roxx
    • C seems low for United.  I don't mind Big Bang Theory but I can only get to a C if I cheat, and take Tables Turning and Never Have It All from the japan version.   In My State Of Mind is a good ballad.
