Organizing LPs was just one. ;^)

Same here. Probably quote it once a week, still.

Very much familiar with that movie and love it.

I totally agree it was one of the more accurate period correct movies of modern times. Notice how there is even distortion when Shrevie played that Capitol LP on the Motorola, a bit of conical distortion, maybe a bit of groove damage, or simply dirty. Anyway, all those actors/actress were all unknowns in 1982 when that movie was shot.

A great film all in all.

Dude has a little too much OCD. When sharing music with friends and loved ones, my Library of Congress 8500 plus record storage vault is open to gratuitous grabs by anyone when I am hosting and playing music on the main rig. They either grab one or ask if I have something in the Library to play. Note, I pull out the actual record itself and place it on, for the main rig. I like playing the music for others to hear. Putting the pile of records away is part of the process.


My older rig, Denon DP62L, anyone can play anytime and I have regular records to pull from. I guess I am slightly OCD too...because I have a system and records for others to just play and enjoy anytime. I guess I am not a grumpy old man, LOL.

Gene Hackman wailing some jazz on his sax, to his mono tube audio system.
Leak integrated?, Rek-o-cut table?, Teac reel to reel? , 12" woofer and horn tweeter speaker no clue.
The Conversation is a great vintage movie.

Always was.

The part about organizing the collection is seriously over-rated.

There was a time I well related to his concerns ( about the time that great movie came out).

Thank the muses I outgrew that crap.

I've been playing LPs for 50 years. I have my way of organizing.

He's got less than 100 records and is obsessed with how they are organized? I've got 3,000 and would NEVER go ballistic like that.

I would NEVER treat a woman like that. NEVER!

That guy it a GIGANTIC GENUINE POS. I've never seen the movie and after seeing that scene, likely never will.

But of course, movies are fantasy. No woman with an IQ above 13 would even be with a Sh*th*ad like that.

I hope, after he left, she pulled all the records off the shelves and threw them around the room -- and then left forever. But of course, it is a movie -- fantasy.

I don't think she is the victim. I think those were her ex-husband's records, , posted on April 3, 2021 at 23:49:57

and she just wants them out of there with no monetary benefit for her her ex.

In fact, she wants her ex to suffer mentally, because his priceless collection is being liquidated for a insane low price.

Hey, it's a movie.

I believed this scene was based on the old joke of the guy seeing the ad for a Porsche 911 Targa for $100. So he calls, believing it is a typo, to find out the real price. The wife replies that her husband left her for some young thing and now wants her to sell the car, among a few other toys, and forward whatever she gets for it. ;^)

I typed my response. I thought I remembered that it was a young teenager walking past the house with that Porsche parked outside. The ex-wife then leans out the window and yells "Hey kid, you like that car.?" Of course the kid says yeah. The wife throws the kid the ex-husband's keys out the window and says "It's yours."

I might be mixing two different scenes here.

It's empowering to her to get back at her turd of an ex who left her.

I do agree with Amphissa's take on the scene from Diner. I don't think it's aged well. Makes me cringe to see him being such a shit despite the pain he's obviously causing.

she gets even by the end of that (fictional) movie.

Fictional movie being the most relevant part of that sentence.
