Is it just me, or was some of the best stuff in the 'Deleted Scenes'?

I guess maybe you had to live though, and be part of, the era to appreciate it. But I saw MW at a theater in a college town (San Luis Obispo, CA) where there was an audience mix of 60-somethings to college students who all seemed to mightily (excuse the pun) enjoy it.

Oh lordy lordy lord!

Last night I watched a repeat of the "Folk special" on PBS. When I first saw it last year, I wrote in Mudcat (click) that it was horrid and embarrassing (and got lots of delicious flack).

Well....on second viewing, I have to say....that it was worse! Cloying, zombie-like, and with one of the worst "Patriotic" songs (by the ubiquitous Randy Sparks) imaginable.

If the gleeful geriatrics in the audience really DID make up the audience of the folk revival 40 years ago, then the music didn't really have much of an effect. Or perhaps those New Christy Minstrel fans of years ago really WERE as bland as the commercial folk groups.

Geez....thank Gawd for Doc, Phil Ochs, and Bobby Zimmerman.

If you have any questions as to why "A Mighty Wind" isn't as funny as "Spinal Tap", Best In Show, or "Waiting For Guffman".....just give the PBS show a look (I'm sure it'l be on again). It's hard to parody something tht's already a parody.

Hey... where did I say I thought it wasn't funny???

I liked "A Mighty Wind" a HELL of a lot more than "Best In Show" (Which seemed to just go on and on and on with no point) and I'd say I enjoyed it as much (or close enough anyway) as "Spinal Tap"

But this isn't about the theatrical release folks... it's about the Special Features on the DVD... There was some really funny, very entertaining stuff there, that I'm surprised wasn't in the movie...

It is getting harder and harder NOT to have a DVD player.   First of all, the prices for a basic DVD player are very cheap - under $100.

Second of all, VHS tapes are being slowly eased out of the marketplace.   DVD sales are already higher than VHS and it is only a matter of time.

Third, you are missing out on some great features. The "extras" are sometimes better than the features!

Incidently, the cast of A Mighty Wind is in the middle of tour. This past Saturday night they performed two shows at the REAL Town Hall in NYC. Unfortunately I had a prior engagement, but I do know a few people who went and gave it a rave review. The entire cast (with the exception of Fred Willard) appeared and performed in character.

There seems to be divided opinion about the film, as is the case with most movies.   From what I've gathered, the people who were disapointed SEEM to be hardcore folkies who were expecting more "in" jokes or people who were expecting the film to be another Spinal Tap. The latter is a bit unfair since Spinal Tap really was the among the first in the musical mockumentary genre. It is very hard to repeat such a classic.    Another group of "dissenters" seem to miss(or don't care for) the subtle humor in the songs.   I found them to be hysterical, but if you were expecting the in-your-face style of a Tom Lehrer, look elsewhere.

Pop some corn, sit back, and enjoy the DVD for what it is - a fun comedy.

You are exactly right Clinton, that was my point. The problem is the "disapointed" voices are those that are being voiced HERE, from hardcore folkies.

I've worked in the television industry for 23 years and I've always thought that "Broadcast News" could have been a better movie because they missed a number of details and opportunities. However,while that might have me laugh a bit more, the film probably would have suffered on a whole.

No one said you need to like anything.

As for the '60s folk groups, I don't think all of them are suffering. Not when groups like Peter, Paul, and Mary and the Kingston Trio are playing cultural centers at $50 a ticket.

As for PBS, just don't watch. They probably don't show it in many bars, anyway.

More power to them if they can get it!!!

M.G. - I know you are just stirring the pot, but I don't think it is fair to make rude insinuations like your last post contained. I know we all think we are comics, but it doesn't always work.

I do agree with you though, it really is unfair to look down at some of these folk groups. I happen to think that the Kingston Trio and Limeliters NEVER got the recognition for what they accomplished and offered to the music scene. While it may have been commercial, at least it had more content than some of the other bubble gum sounds that were occuring at the time.

Unfortunately that PBS special was a piece of crap shot on a minimal budget. The production values really made the groups and music come off as cheesy. They are better than that.

Both groups I mentioned easily get $50. a ticket at cultural centers in major cities. If they get it in casinos, more power to them.

I'm still trying to figure out what you think I said was rude. If you want rude, not to mention pompous, Rick Fielding said in his post above:

"If the gleeful geriatrics in the audience really DID make up the audience of the folk revival 40 years ago, then the music didn't really have much of an effect. Or perhaps those New Christy Minstrel fans of years ago really WERE as bland as the commercial folk groups."

That's rude.

Hey, I also thought the PBS special could have been better, but I could give a rat's ass if it didn't address the so-called hard-core folkies. There's obviously not enough interest for PBS to even try to exploit it.

I was talking about your comment concerning PBS and bars.

Yes, I do have to agree with you... calling their audience "gleeful geriatrics" is not P.C. I think when we paint these images, we end up painting ourselves into boxes. No wonder young people aren't attending. Of course, PBS chose to paint such a picture in the first place.

Also, you are 100% correct about the ticket prices. I did a little checking and I was amazed.

Not that they don't deserve it, but I do wonder if they end up pricing themselves away from new fans. It is true that they can exist with their current fan base, but it would be hard to attract someone who might be curious at those prices.

Don't get me wrong - if I can afford it, I have no problem paying $$$ for a concert in a setting like those that PPM are featured in.   I've got my fingers crossed for Simon & Garfunkel, and the tickets are more than twice that price!

If anything, I usually find extreme entertainment value out of these types of dialogues

I also don't think folk music should be an exclusive club, which is precisely why I usually challange the ones who generally think it is, so I don't think I've missed any point.

That actually isn't true - it did okay at the box office for it's genre. It had a limited release. I bet it will do very well on DVD, as do many films like this. Austin Powers had a very mediocre stint in the theaters. After it was released on VHS it developed a huge following.

Bought it today. Watched it twice. Then I watched the great extra scenes that didn't make the film. I thought all of it was a stitch. Wonderful, and poingnant as hell in many spots.

Best of all, I knew EVERYONE there. Actually, I saw at least 5 or ten folks I've known in each and every one of the characters in the film. The movie avoided those of us who hang on the trad side of town. But I didn't grow up in bubble. I just know what I prefer.

Interestingly, I generally avoided being very close to those like the people in A Mighty Wind. But they were always fun to watch and nice people to know. As a solo performer, I got to keep all the cash from my gigs----and nobody ever quit my group either.
