In Reply to: RE: Rank Your Top Five James Bond Themes (and Films and Bonds) posted by RGA on July 09, 2017 at 08:14:17
Theme: On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Bond: The Original
For me, it's all about the music of John Barry (I have six of the early soundtracks most of which on 24/96 and vinyl). His iconic brass signature is everything. I wore out the first vinyl copy of OHMSS purchased at age 12 when the film came out.
Thunderball convinced me to try scuba diving. I became certified at age 15.
OHMSS convinced me to try skiing. My wife and I enjoy doing that to this day. :)
That's cool. Boys wanted to be James Bond and Girls wanted... James Bond.
Perhaps subconsciously You Only Live Twice made me want to live in Asia. :)
still beckons me to visit Tokyo!
Aki and her unique convertible Toyota 2000GT . :)
Great car. Wish more cars today had those wooden steering wheels. Man it is small though - Sean was a tall man and even Leno looks squished in. Definitely not taking it cross country.
I also liked seeing Hong Kong back in the 60s to see how small it all was back then compared to now.
I've only been to Fukuoka, Japan and I loved it. Everything is spotlessly clean. The city has all those bike stands where you just take one bike up the road to the next bike stand drop it off. Clean cars everywhere, Everyone is well dressed. Safe, good food, no litter. Even Burger King was class. Audrey Hepburn posters everywhere - spotless, clean floors, streets, roads. Seeing beautiful women dressed to the nines riding 1950s looking bicycles is jaw dropping.
There are some perks to living in Asia. Petty awesome cars here. Becomes a little boring to see all the Ferrari, Lambos and Bentley lining the streets.

I like that ability. Wifey had a business meeting in Chicago in the spring and I went on a multi-day museum tour via bikes.

Common perhaps, but not boring!

It's nice to never see a bunch of trucks belching out black smoke and stickers all over the back bumper telling me about their personal lives or who they voted for which other car company they pee on (Calvin).
You rarely see old cars here.
Now you will see some silly cars here like the above. But I think it's cute so why not.
