Bohemian Rhapsody

    This must be why Queen has been getting so much airplay recently. My drive to work has been filled with"We are the champions..." 🎶 so much that it feels like a high school football game!

    I was also wondering why Toto was getting so much airplay with "I miss the rains down in Africa... 🎶 " until I realized it wasn't really Toto; it was Weezer doing a pretty damn good cover.

    I'm so slow with pop culture...

    this Watchtower stating that "Another One Bites the Dust" is backwards "It is fun to smoke marijuana".
    Was that actually in print? I don't remember seeing it.

    I quoted it above:
    "There have also been recordings of unscriptural and even demonistic messages by means of a technique called backward masking, used by a number of musical groups. When the recording of one very popular song is played backward, it repeatedly says, “Decide to smoke marijuana.” (w83 10/15 pp. 10-15)

    As movies go, I'd say it was fairly good. Some of the acting seemed a bit forced to me.

    However, Rami Malek's performance was absolutely worth the price of seeing it on a big screen with fancy Lay-Z-Boy recliners!

    He really did a great job of capturing Freddie's energy and passion.

    Also, as someone said earlier, finishing up with a recreation of the Live Aid concert was perfect.

    Alright, here's a corny Queen fan-boy trivia question/joke I just made up.

    Q: What's Brian May's favorite sexual position?

    A: 39

    (Let the groans begin!)

    I enjoyed this movie a lot! I didn’t learn anything new about mr mercury from the movie, I found it to be a little historically off, the time line was jumbled up. The music was great though and I had no idea when watching it little Timmy from Jurassic park was in it!

    As we left the cinema I told my daughter I didn't remember a few things quite like they were depicted in the film but later learned it was because they shifted the timeline about so the build-up to Live Aid would be more dramatic.

    Watched it last night. I absolutely loved it. Malik plays a very good Freddy (that accent isn’t easy to do). Brian and John are dead ringers and the mannerisms were just like them (John Deacons squint!).

    Ive has the line aid version of Radio Gaga on a lot this morning 😊

    The Elton John biopic is out next: Rocketman.

    My friends have been to see it and told me that there is even a Mike Myers cameo in it (remember his scene with Bohemian Rhapsody from Wayne’s World?)

    Yh! I never noticed until I got back home and saw it mentioned online. He's the plays the head of EMI. His accent and makeup is so well done you'd never think it was him.
