Buffalo's Top Ten List For The Week of September13, 2009

Posted: Sep 13, 2009

1. The Beatles Boxed Sets  (CDs)
    Talk about staying power? I have heard great things about the sound of these remastered albums. I can hardly wait to hear for myself.

2. South of Broad (Book)
    The new novel from South Carolina writer Pat Conroy. I just started reading it and am already drawn in, as always, by Conroy’s style.

3. Lynyrd Skynyrd Website
    The band site has really upgraded lately and there are some great clips on their now of Johnny, Gary and Rick discussing the new album.

2. I Can Do Bad All By Myself (Movie)
    The new Tyler Perry film is a five star goodie. Madea is back and a laugh a minute, but the story is very serious as well. Lots of great music including a couple of really nice tunes performed by Gladys Knight,

5. Jay Leno Goes Prime Time  (TV)
    Beginning this week, Leno brings his humor to prime time with a real first, a five night a week prime time talk and variety hour. Thank God an alternative to so called “reality” TV.

6. Ghost Adventures  (TV)
    Fridays on the Travel Channel. By far the best of this whole slew of ghost hunter shows. These guys are highly entertaining and the show is actually spooky.

7. X-Men Origins: Woverine  (DVD)
    Got mixed reviews, but as for me, I love it as another chapter in the X-Men comic book saga.

8. Tommy Talton/Randall Bramblett Team Up
    These two former Capricorn Records guys work very well together. Look for them on your radar and don’t miss ‘em.

9. (Movie)
   Brilliant story, excellent animation. A sci-fi spectacle. Highly original.

10. Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band  (Tour)
   The Boss is coming to my town this Wednesday. Look for a review toward weeks end.

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.

  Solo was busily checking readouts from gauges and dials in the hold area.Occasionally he would pass a small box across various sensors, study the result, andcluck with pleasure.   "You can stop worrying about your Imperial friends," he told Luke and Ben."They'll never be able to track us now. Told you I'd lose them."   Kenobi might have nodded briefly in response, but he was engaged in explainingsomething to Luke.   "Don't everybody thank me at once," Solo grunted, slightly miffed. "Anyway,navigation computer calculates our arrival in Alderaan orbit at oh-two-hundred. I'mafraid after this little adventure I'll have to forge a new registration."   He returned to his checking, passing in front of a small circular table. The topwas covered with small squares lit from beneath, while computer monitors were setinto each side. Tiny three-dimensional figures were projected above the tabletopfrom various squares.   Chewbacca sat hunched over on side of the table, his chin resting in massivehands. His great eyes glowing and facial whiskers wrinkled upward, he gave everysign of being well pleased with himself."No…no," Luke answered quickly, "we live in the west, near Bestine township."   "Bestine?" the trooper murmured, walking around to study the speeder's front.Luke forced himself to stare straight ahead. Finally the armored figure concludedhis examination. He moved to stand ominously close to Luke and snapped, "Let mesee your identification."UGG Boots Clearance   Surely the man sensed his terror and nervousness by now, Luke thought wildly.His resolution of not long before to be ready to take on anything had alreadydisintegrated under the unwinking stare of this professional soldier. He knew whatwould happen if they got a look at his formal ID, with the location of his homesteadand the name of his nearest relatives on it. Something seemed to be buzzing insidehis head; he felt faint.   Kenobi had leaned over and was talking easily to the trooper. "You don't needto see his identification," the old man informed the Imperial in an extremely peculiarvoice.   Staring blankly back at him, the officer replied, as if it were self-evident,UGG Boots Clearance "I don'tneed to see your identification." His reaction was the opposite of Kenobi's: hisvoice was normal, but his expression peculiar.   "These aren't the 'droids you're looking for," Kenobi told him pleasantly.   "These aren't the 'droids we're looking for."   "He can go about his business."   "You can go about UGG Boots Clearance your business," the metal-masked officer informed Luke.   The expression of relief that spread across Luke's face ought to have been asrevealing as his previous nervousness, but the Imperial ignored it.Ugg boots clearance   "Move along," Kenobi whispered.   "Move along," the officer instructed Luke.   Unable to decide whether he should salute, nod, or give thanks to the man, Lukesettled for nudging the accelerator. The landspeeder moved forward, drawing awayfrom the circle of troops. As they prepared to round a corner, Luke risked a glancebackward. The officer who had inspected them appeared to be arguing with severalcomrades, though at this distance Luke couldn't be sure.   He peered up at his tall companion and started to say something.Ugg boots clearance Kenobiseemed to have some idea where they were headed. Luke studied the run-downstructures and equally unwholesome-looking individuals they were passing. Theyhad entered the oldest section of Mos Eisley and consequently the one where the oldvices flourished most strongly.   Kenobi pointed and Luke pulled the landspeeder up in front of what appeared tobe one of the original spaceport's first blockhouses. Ugg boots clearance It had been converted into acantina whose clientele was suggested by the diverse nature of transport parkedoutside. Some of them Luke recognized, others he had only heard rumors of. Thecantina itself, he knew from the design of the building, must lie partially underground.   As the dusty but still sleek craft pulled into an open spot, a jawa materializedfrom nowhere and began running covetous hands over the metal sides. Luke leanedout and barked something harsh at the sub-human, which caused it to scurry away.   "I can't abide those jawas," murmured Threepio with lofty disdain.Ugg boots outlet "Disgusting creatures."   Luke's mind was too full of their narrow escape for him to comment onThreepio's sentiments. "I still can't understand how we got by these troops. Ithought we were as good as dead."   "The force is in the mind, Luke, and can sometime be used to influence others.It's a powerful ally. But as you come to know the force, you will discover that it canalso be a danger."   Nodding without really understanding, Luke indicated the run-down thoughobviously popular cantina. "Do you really think we can find a pilot here capable oftaking us all the way to Alderaan?"
