First of all, thanks for all the followers and comments on my cinematic journey through movie land. It has been interesting, if not a bit on the sweaty side.
After 600 miles and about 2 days worth of continuous cycling, I am going to change things up a bit. Fear Not! I won't be taking anything away or doing any less. If anything, you will all get to follow along with even more movie goodness in the weeks and months to come.
I have been tweaking and updating the Google Spreadsheet that I use to keep track of my media and now it tracks ALL of my media, including VHS, DVD and even Streaming content from iTunes / Hulu / Google Play. Owww, all that cinematic goodness!
So starting next week the spreadsheet is going to start picking titles for me at random from across all media types, not just the LaserDiscs. I know, I know, you are saying to yourselves this guy must be a genius! Well, no, but I am smarter than some of my peers in the office where I work, that is for sure.
Displayed above are the next 6 titles up for viewing in the week ahead. I know you can hardly wait. Only 1957 more titles to go before I am done. I can do this!
If you haven't already checked it out and bookmarked the blog (but I am sure you already have), here it is:

(Cardio Workout And Reviewing Movies At The Same Time)
TITLE: Monterey Pop
TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 19 minutes
DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 20.4 miles
TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 638.3 miles
SYNOPSIS: That Other 1960s Concert Film
CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: We were all young, exuberant and optimistic once upon a time. We need films like this to remind us so we don’t forget.
PROS AND CONS: When viewing a lot of the concert discs and opera discs for this project, I have a set of wireless headphones that I plug into the video system. These really paid off while watching this film. I found that I pedal a lot faster and get a better workout when I am watching/listening to really good music.
This is the other concert film from the summer of love, the more well known film is the one documenting Woodstock. This film is shorter and more intimate, having been staged at a smaller venue near San Francisco and produced by Mark Phillips of the Mamas and Papas fame.
What really hit me while watching this film was the innocence on the faces of the young people who were present at the show. We have lost some of the wide-eyed optimism and purity in the ensuing decades as our youth gave way to corporate greed and manipulation by ‘The Man’.
All the performances here are good and some are downright exceptional. Keith Moon at his manic best as The Who’s drummer in ‘My Generation’. Mama Kass watching in amazement as Janice Joplin sings ‘Ball and Chain’, Jimmy Hendrix lighting his guitar on fire after his performance of ‘Wild Thing’ and Ravi Shankar proving that the sitar is indeed a rock instrument.
