Ever noticed all of the frickin' weird sounds that go on lightly in the background during the opening monologues, in particular the sydney barringer one.  At one point (when barringer is falling from the building with the x's and o's on the screen), it sounds like cheerleaders or sumpin.

parts of it remind me of the beatles' "revolution #9"

kind of neat.  sorry if this was mentioned prior.

actually i did a complete audio deconstruction of the opening of magnolia on the old board which nobody fucking saw.  there's a lot of crazy shit in there, i think i still have some of the files

i actually found, isolated, and recognized
- phil and earl having a conversation backwards that isn't in the movie
- fiona apple harmonizing with an irritating beep
- pta chanting
- sounds from the boogie nights credits
- muffled dialogue from an movie ("it's my hometown, i know exactly where it is")
- machine guns

and more.  i'll try and finds those files later

How did you isolate those? Did you just save a clip from the DVD and then sort through the audio frequencies? That's crazy cool.

I'm pretty sure one of the frickin weird sounds can be heard also on the opening track of When the Pawn.

when the movie was being tested, revolution #9 was used as a temp track, but then replaced with the crazy shit.

extracted directly from the 5.1 mix, various vocals and channels were removed/added to detect these subtle effects, and i'm sure many more were layered that i was unable to detect because they were so tiny.

i'll post it again once i can find all the files

Oh.. it was probably something else... I'm trying to remember.... umm... no, yeah, it was definitely something from PDL. Definitely from PDL. I'm pretty sure it was a song from pdl.com ...

At one point there is a clip from the hidden track on Aimee Mann's album "I'm With Stupid"...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

sphinx put up Homer singing "Spanish Flea". Could that be what you're thinking of, JB?
