Postings about movies could take up this entire board. And those would be just MY postings. But I will list only one more: the astonishing film I saw last night! I believe believe fans of KCís music will experience a resonance with this (as they might with Orpheus):
Ordet, directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer
If you watch this, then do not read much beforehand Two things might help. First, it has great formal beauty (especially framing and lighting): watch and marvel! Second, it is a deep meditation on other-worldly faith and this-worldly love (and not a simple farce as I first suspected). There are no credits of any kind, except for the original playís name "Ordet" and the name of the playwrite (a pastor named Kaj Munk, who was martyred by the Nazis). It is a deceptively simple film that knocked me FLAT.
Opening Night, NYC

Unbelievable! The Beast has claimed Times Square...
Great show, great crowd, one of the best performances Iíve ever seen! Brought my 19-year-old son, and passed the Crim torch to him - he was blown away. Wish I had more tickets - so glad I didnít miss this one. Thank you, Robert & the band. One final comment - the triple drummers were absolutely amazing! They could have been a show unto themselves.
A Question for Mr. Robert Fripp:

Iíve been wondering if you could take time off your busy schedule to drop in on Daryl Hall, and hopefully do an episode of "Live At Darylís House"?
Been listening to "North Star" a lot lately, and would love to hear the two of you collaborate again!
Question for Gavin-Overhead mics
:: Posted by drummingclown420 on September 19, 2014
Hi, Gavin-I was at the first Boston show and was incredibly impressed with the sound quality. I didnít see any other overhead mics on you kit other than the pair on the stand in back of you. If that the case, they are INCREDIBLE. Can you tell me what they are, etc., etc.? Thanks very much and continued success on the tour.-jg
burning question for Mr. Fripp
:: Posted by greekstreet on September 19, 2014
In the past you have stated that King Crimson is ía way of doing thingsí.
If this way of doing things (your way of doing things?) is honoured, is it then possible for King Crimson to exist without Mr. Fripp?
Burning questions give you so much more

For Mr. Fripp: What is the most compelling evidence you know of for dualism? I refer to the dualism implicit in Mr. Frippís describing death as a flying away, his assertions that certain house(s) are haunted, and personal experience he describes as having received downloads of music from a not-so-mundane realm, contact with which (if Iíve understood correctly) Mr. Fripp sees as mediated by other than the usual five senses. Iíve had remarkable first-hand experiences (some involving music, some not) that are tempting to interpret dualistically ("spiritualistically", if you prefer)--but I remain unconvinced because dualism creates more questions than it answers, at least as I see it.

What are some of OUR favorites?
Mine is Jean Cocteauís Orpheus.
Question for Robert Fripp
:: Posted by Krim89 on September 18, 2014
Of all the past members of King Crimson, specifically, not any current members, which member(s) would you like most to play with again, and why?
Extra question, who of all musicians who have never played in King Crimson, would you like to play with in future versions of King Crimsons, and why?
Thank you so much!
Question for RF

Iíve wondered what Mr. Frippís thoughts were concerning the music of Captain Beefheart. Thanks
