I just feel like my heart is going to burst because it's full of rainbows.
Quote:I'm not alone in hoping there is a new little Crowe in his future.
Quote:his heart is complete and it's reflected in his poetry.
Quote:its great that he still graciously gives people the opportunity to have that 'moment' be it a smile, a gesture or a quick word because I think he appreciates and understands what that might mean to a fan.
Quote:I really flubbed a coherent explanation (blame it on the concert high and jet lag) - so I appeal to my board sistas to assist - how would you define a 'shallow' moment in relation to Russell?

Quote:Many fans I met over the weekend expressed the same experience I had - in the middle of the uncertainty and stress, when you'd ask yourself "why am I doing this?" - there was never a moment when the answer changed.

Quote:Is there anything similar to jet-lag for what you get after a Russell's performance?
Quote:Wait...did I just call myself lovely??

Quote:I kept feeling that this was Russell at his mature prime - in command of his group - singing with confidence and inspiration - feeding off the crowd and enjoying himself immensely.
Quote:Hope you make the CC a regular stop.
Quote:Cindy,maybe Lizzy didn't see the comments from Murph and/or 6point7?If she had seen them, I'm sure she wouldn't have posted the scan

Quote:Anyone know what song might go with this outfit.
Quote:Isis- Each and every day, but especially at times like this, I thank the gods that I chose the group I did when I jumped in with both feet back in 2000. Our fandom has had it's ups and downs but a wonderful weekend in France for some has become a wonderful memory for all of us.
Quote:Thanks to everyone for sharing and thank you Russell for giving.

Quote:perchance Russell has been enjoying les croissants et les baguettes et beaucoup de cuisine provencale!
Quote:If he's wearing the pinstripe slacks does this mean that they shot this footage for Testify the same day as the concert?
Oct 26 07 11:18 PM
Quote:this shot is not for Testify.
Quote:I bet each member of the band had to get dressed up as something.

Quote:Thank you, Roherin
Quote:Yes, certainly, but the only thing we've shared together is rugby.

Quote:Ah Ben that, it is sure that the concerts of Crowe are not made for the prudes! If there are brushes in the c..l, is better should see a concert of Guy Bhart! Forgot you to say that it swore, also... In English and French, please! Lastly, I make a point of specifying nevertheless that Crowe, if it has drunk some mouthfuls of beer (while carrying to the public a toast in all the ways that one can make it in English and French between each mouthful, which appeared me to amuse most of the assistance, but obviously not everyone), he nevertheless did not torch the mouth on scene and which what he smoked is on sale free... It is a little damage to have only that to say on the concert... Besides that, as I had said, environment was electric, all the room (who was full) was found upright on several occasions to type in its hands and to make gestures of the arms, Negro spiritual kind. Some tricks sympas: Crowe said some French words, whose "shit" to speak about the auricles which squeaked to him in the ears, (it even imitated us the noise that that made! When it started to speak to us in English, it said to us that Allan Doyle was going to translate (Doyle is Canadian, not Quebec) It thus started with "This is the story... Allan translate that! "And the other: "This is the story..." with a French accent to cross to the knife! If not, when it spoke English, it spoke slowly... It explained us besides that it also made an effort for allger its accent Australian... And when it showed us the difference, it was included/understood why! Before singing the song for which he wanted that one rises and that the hands are agitated, he carted us with this history (I paraphrase a little): "You think that one is making a concert, but in truth, one produces a video clip for this song. Ca would have cost us much too expensive to engage all these people, then Allan which is the genius of the team said ' One has only to make a concert! ' Then when the camera is on you, you raise the arms in the air and you agitate the hands like that... Atention, if you do not do it well, one will be obliged to sing this song a whore of ten time! "Stewart Kirwan is really a good trumpet player: that should not be obvious to finish a solo of trumpet when have you Russell Crowe which tickles you! Ridley Scott arrived after the beginning in the concert of Crowe, but if he wanted to pass unperceived, it was missed: Crowe pinned by showing it with the public so that it is applauded and sang a song which is called "A Good Year", but which does not have anything to see it is not besides him, this one. Alan Doyle sang "the Staircases of the Hillock" with some difficulties, but it of it is not badly drawn with much humour! An image which will remain engraved forever in my head: Crowe which returns on scene with the shirt of the team of France of Foot and holding up a scarf of supporters "Go the Blue ones"!!! I let to you guess the reaction of the room! In short the music was super, Crowe was in great form, a true animal of scene! One sang, one gueul, one laughed and typed in our hands... One evening of hell! Three numbers in first part: a local group very owl which sang us of Nino Ferrer and Dutronc, a chick with a splendid voice which was accompanied with the guitar accoustics, and an Australian group who made hip hop. Perso, not my cup of tea, I would have preferred some songs of Crowe moreover.
Quote:Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting........... It seems like all I do is wait.
Quote:too much beautiful to be true, large doubts about what you say, with all these adventures, I realize that there are people who take their desires for realities and which invent anything: I can also make it, chiche? it is a little disturbing if they is false, the connerire has limits, it is you loulle, that returned in fright because it had seen RC arriving at THOR? it was nice if what you tell is true: do we give your impressions???

Quote:I rather like taking 'enflamme' as 'inflamed' - lighting our fire is something we expect from him .............. and always get! (isnt there a "going up in flames" emoticon somewhere? )

Quote:Rusty doing time behind the cameraMarch 17, 2005RUSSELL Crowe was busy working on a film shoot yesterday, but spent his time on the opposite side of the lens.And no, Rusty hasn't taken over the directorial duties on the stalled Eucalyptus. He spent the afternoon with a film crew outside Bill and Tony's cafe in East Sydney, directing a film clip for his band Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts.The clip, shot on several Super-8 cameras, featured some elderly men sitting around an outside table, a trumpeter, a dancing couple dressed in 1950s garb and an classic Allard car.The actor and the members of his band who were present did not feature in the clip, but Crowe's voice could be heard coming from a loudspeaker, singing an emotive song with lyrics about football and coffee, while he looked through a lens at his actors."There was about 20 people here," a Bill and Tony's staff member told Confidential.Crowe was "very nice," he said."I didn't expect him to be so nice."Crowe has apparently been hard at work on a new TOFOG album and has reportedly played some new material to friends.

Quote:I wondered when OWOS had so much personal and non-rock songs on it if he were moving in another direction,
Quote:Dont desert us Ro - us Gladbb'ers know how to party too.
Quote:Thanks TOFOG, OWOS is divine!, April 12, 2003Reviewer: True Blue TOFOG Fan (SoWest USA) - See all my reviews I've been a TOFOG fans for a few years, have all the previous CDs. True, I found TOFOG through being a Russell Crowe fan, but that does not negate how entertaining this band is. OWOS is a definite departure for them, but plainly maps their growth from raucous raw pub band (Gaslight), to a more commercial but still rockin' folk rock band (Bastard Life or Clarity) to OWOS, a CD that can compete with many more well-known groups out there today. OWOS has superior production with wonderfully fluid and lyrical arrangements. There is a terrific mix of full on rocking dance around the room songs as well as a few ballads which will leave you wanting more of this velvet-yet-growly-voiced singer. Stand outs for me include "Painted Veil", "Full Length of the River" and "Afraid". Dare I say I truly enjoy TOFOG's interpretation of "Folsom Prison Blues" even more than the Man in Black's own version.

Quote:Celtic/British melodic folk-flavoured caustic & wry songs about drunkards, loudmouths, cemeteries, Malcolm Lowry, glory days gone by, the unloved and unwanted, the sacrifice of war; each song a perfect life in miniature of another tragic character or scenario caught in the net of the storyteller's eye for detail...
