Everytime I hear that Blue Oyster song, I think of Walken.

He plays an old frined of a former soldier?

"I need you to hide this for me. Let's see, where can we put it where it won't be found..."
2003-03-16 12:16:43 AM  
"Yeah that was ok but I think something was wrong. We need more cowbell!"
2003-03-16 12:18:15 AM  
Walken almost got me fired.

I was on talking with a client and in the background Don't Fear The Reaper started to play and I started chuckling, then I heard the cowbell and totally lost it. I couldn't stop laughing, I had to go on a break and have someone else takeover my call. Thank you Walken!!!

You know, there is just something that makes my spine tingle, when I hear the ole' cowbell....
2003-03-16 12:20:49 AM  
Well I mean, this is not actually news. It's like saying "actor scheduled to act in movie." Which is what it is. Is. I'm going to bed.

As old as the joke is getting, I can't help but laugh once the cowbell chimes in on Don't Fear the Reaper.

When are they going to get around to making a Walken box set. It would have pride of place next to my Kubrick box set. And for Ubermench, i'll put a cowbell on the other side.

You are as clueless as you look. It was all based on a saturday night live episode where "Don't Fear The Reaper" was produced by Walken. De manded "More Cowbell!" Listn to the track Luddite!

Think about it and then read the Farq

Everytime I hear Reaper it still reminds me of Stephen King's The Stand. Awesome book that was.
2003-03-16 01:08:09 AM  
For those still wondering, search for audio of:
"Don't Fear The Reaper"

listen for the cowbell

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind the sun or the rain (we can be like they are)
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man
La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming everyday (we can be like they are)
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man
La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared (saying don't be afraid)
Come on baby (and she had no fear)
And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)

Paste that in your browser! Good but it needs more cowbell
2003-03-16 01:21:18 AM  
Hahahaha, I just DL'd the song, and it does indeed make you chuckle everytime they fire up the cowbell. I can visualize that SNL sketch, hehehehe.

This week, The Onion picks up another popular syndicated column: Christopher Walken's "Walken in L.A." For the last two years, Mr. Walken has provided his readers with consistently insightful commentary into the entertainment industry. His column already appears regularly in Variety and Rolling Stone, as well as in dozens of smaller newspapers and magazines. We're proud to welcome this celebrated actor and columnist to our pages.

Do you enjoy eating hot dogs? I hope you won't be put off by my frankness when I tell you that I absolutely love them. In fact, I enjoy no food item more than a freshly-boiled hot dog. Now, I've done a lot of movies, and it's true that I've worked with quite a few celebrities who did not share this opinion. I'm sorry to say that these people have always angered me.

There are two types of people in this world: those who eat hot dogs whenever it is possible to do so, and those who opt to do other things with their free time. Who do the latter think they are kidding? What pastime could be more rewarding than the consumption of hot dogs? I haven't yet found one, and I don't expect to in my lifetime. Unlike other foods, hot dogs can be eaten at any time, in any place, and it is not necessary to cook them. Now, I ask you: Why not eat hot dogs? They are delicious.

I carry a bag of hot dogs with me wherever I go. I eat them from the bag whenever I get the urge, regardless of the circumstances. When I make a movie, my hot dogs are my co-stars. If, in the middle of a scene, I decide I want to consume a hot dog, I do so. I waste the director's time and thousands of dollars in film stock, but in the end, it is all worth it, because I enjoy eating hot dogs more than I enjoy acting. This bothers some people. I was supposed to portray Batman, but when Tim Burton learned of my hot dog cravings, he asked Michael Keaton to wear the cape. To this day, I am peeved about this.

When we filmed The Dead Zone, I ate over 800 hot dogs a day. It was necessary. My character needed to come across as intense as possible, and I found the inspiration for that intensity in my intense love for hot dogs. The director, David Cronenberg, said that he would never work with me again. I kept eating hot dogs when the cameras were rolling, and that seemed to bother him. I say fark him. He doesn't even like hot dogs.

I would like to end by emphasizing once again that I really like to eat hot dogs. If any of you people disagree, I loathe you. I despise you. Not only that, but I also despise all your loved ones. I want to see them torn to pieces by wild dogs. If I ever meet you in person, I'll smash your brains in with a farking bat. Then we'll see who doesn't like hot dogs.

Next week: My thoughts on Woody Allen, hot dog hater and shiatty director.
